Remember the idea that Elon Musk had to make a "Yelp for Reporters"? Does anyone know if that ever became a reality? Seems like a worthy idea that the world needs to discern what news to pay attention to, and what is pure propaganda.

In 1985, the FBI approached Randy Weaver, a former Special Forces soldier in Viet Nam, and asked him to become an informant for the federal government. (The federals have over 12,000 paid informants nationwide, who's job it is to spy upon the American populace.) Weaver refused. He then filed an affidavit with his county recorder saying he feared for his life as a result of the refusal.

In August, of 1992, an eleven—day siege of the Weaver home in North Idaho began. A federal agent charged that Weaver had a shotgun with the barrel 1/4" too short. Weaver said it was a frame up for refusing to pimp for the government. Over 500 Federal personnel (federal marshals, FBI and ATF agents, US Army soldiers, some of whom had just returned from the killing fields in Iraq) surrounded the Weaver home; and above in the sky flew US Air Force planes and personnel. Included in the Federals on the ground were crack snipers, trained at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Their job was to kill Weaver. Weaver had vowed not to surrender to the Federals on the phony charges brought as punishment for refusing them.

How can a video website know what's true or not?

RT @andersonomic
. @breedlove22 Stephanie Kelton is literally saying in her book ‘The Deficit Myth’ that the government enslaves it’s population by having a monopoly on violence and coercion through taxation. You can’t make this up. #bitcoin definitely fixes this.

And they tell us to go cashless and what a wonderful transition this will be, benefiting us all. Haha

Guess what will happen once the "cashless" society is fully implemented.

- Banks and the State will hold control over all your money.
- Banks and the State can confiscate all your money at the touch of a button, for any reason they deem fit. Good luck fighting them in the
​:redkike:​ Bolshevik courts.
- Banks and the State will survey and record ALL your transactions.
- Banks and the State may choose to suspend payment services to you if they don't like what they see. No payment services = you're going to be very screwed.
- Banks and the State will force you to pay commission to them on every transaction you make, for services rendered.
- When the lights go out, so do your chances of transacting.

For the first time, the U.S. has used its power to globally block news/propaganda websites on the Internet. We began blocking #Iranian news sites last week and redirecting them to an FBI warning. This is very unwise.

Many journalists and activists rely on Wickr for secure comms.

If you are one of those people, you are now at risk.

The #ACCESSAct is the most important tech law in decades, using interoperability to weaken the grip of Big Tech on our digital lives. It was passed out of committee this week. Next step: a vote by the House. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/06/acce

"You don't need a gun because the government can destroy you" is the best case for the second amendment any president has ever made

I have hope that the social media censorship of any discussion of covid leaking from a lab, which now looks correct or at least worthy of discussion, will discredit them same as the Iraq "weapons ofass destruction" farce ended any legitimacy for the United Nations

Liberty doesn't mean you have safety or free welfare. Freedom means you have freedom from the government.

Freedom means personal responsibility.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
