New York City, August 30, 2011 – On September 10th 2011 liberty activists, authors, bloggers, artists and musicians from different political backgrounds and parts of the country will gather at Club Amnesia in West Chelsea, Manhattan to celebrate the cause of Liberty. It’s been hailed by some as “The Liberty Event of the Year”, but what isLibertyFest? The organizers of LibertyFest, four grass-roots activists, describe the event:
“LibertyFest is a building of coalitions from the entire spectrum of the liberty movement. We must come together if we are going to bring liberty back to our country. What better way to start rebuilding than to begin at the place where liberty was lost as we come together to bring it back on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 ,” says Gigi Bowman, co-organizer of LibertyFest and founder of Liberty-Candidates.org.
The event has drawn an impressive roster of speakers, including NY Times best-selling author and Senior Fellow of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, Tom Woods. Other speakers include voluntaryist philosopher, Stefan Molyneux – former Arizona Sheriff, Richard Mack – former Congressional candidate, Adam Kokesh – Gary Franchi, founder of the RTR.org social network – and 2012 Libertarian Presidential Candidate, RJ Harris. In addition, many current and former candidates from Liberty-Candidates.org will be speaking and celebrating the launch of the first official book from the same organization, titled: How to Run for Office on a Liberty Platform.
This event is truly drawing people from all arenas, as stated by co-organizer, Ian Cioffi, “LibertyFest NYC is about bringing people from various political views together, under one roof, to discuss what we can agree on, and how to build from there. It’s an event for people who understand that both parties are to blame, and how we can go about fixing our broken political system.”
Co-organizer, Amanda Trbovich adds, “LibertyFest is about coming together and working with one another. We all have such different viewpoints and we all think very critically – not everyone is going to agree and that is healthy, it keeps us vigilant, as we were meant to be. This event celebrates the differences in the Liberty Movement and invites everyone to come together to share ideas on the best way to preserve our inherent human freedoms.”
Book signings, Liberty themed music & clothing, precious metals by Del Valley Silver and much more will be available in the vendor loft.
“We will be honoring 9/11 heroes and victims, discussing philosophy, debating solutions to national political and economic challenges and having a great time while doing it!” said co-organizer Danny Panzella.

December 7-10th, 2010, we are asking EVERYBODY to buy at LEAST one (1) ounce of PHYSICAL Silver either online at a primary dealer or secondary market like eBay.com or offline at a local coin dealer or pawn shop. Do NOT buy any fraudulent silver certificates or speculative silver mining stocks.
Help crash the corrupt J.P. Morgan who has committed silver fraud and broken dozens of federal and state laws in manipulating precious metals while helping the Government prop up the over-valued and nearly worthless U.S. greenback currency.
Vote with your feet and buy as much Silver for yourself or loved ones on that day!
Re: the government’s finger pointing at the JOURNALIST which has uncovered its lies and tyrannies and is forcing it to account. DON’T BE FOOLED BY THIS NEWEST MISDIRECTION ATTEMPT! Keep your focus laser-sighted on the officials that have done things that require explanations NOT on the whistle blower that has thankfully made us aware of the illegal/unethical activities.
It is so easy to point one’s finger at a scapegoat and bray about the harm he is “causing” while the real wicked people scamper on with their tyranny and their vices unmolested. Will we all be fooled again? I say that if government officials don’t want to be forced to answer hard questions about their unethical behaviors then they should…STOP DOING ILLEGAL/UNETHICAL TYRANICAL CRAP THAT ENDS UP ON WIKILEAKS AND OBEY THE RULE OF LAW!
When will the press stand up and FIGHT for one of the last real journalist of our time? It seems that Assange, and a few others (AJ;), are the only journalists NOT on the government dole. They should all do as the founders intended them to do and close ranks around a brother that is TRYING to force our government(s) to be honest to us. Why is the freedom of the press in the very FIRST amendment? Because the founders KNEW that government conducted in secret is inherently corrupt. Oh, by the way, are we really supposed to believe that some LOWLEY PRIVATE, the lowest rank in the U.S. Military, is the sole source of all these leaks?! If you believe that crap I have some ocean-front property in Arizona to sell you:) From these claims about this soldier we can deduce one of two things…either our government is lying to us…AGAIN…or our intelligence departments are the most inept government entities in the history of the Republic. I’m not sure which is more damming.
Demand to have your government conduct its business in the OPEN for all eyes to see. Your Freedom and Liberty depend upon this for government conducted in secret has made slaves of us all.

Liberty Candidate, Cisse Spragins, Speaks Out against Body Scanners
Adam VS The Man with Adam Kokesh Naked Body Scan or Pat Down
I think there is something not being discussed here, which is that the Federal Gov’t should not be conducting security for private airlines. The very existence of the TSA shows an overreach of the commerce clause, and is an unjustified expansion of gov’t. What SHOULD have happened is that the airport or the airline in question should provide its own security, and if the company then required body scans or pat-downs, then it would not be a violation of the Constitution, and if the customer did not like it, he could take his business to another airline or another airport. Because of federal involvement, every airport will soon have the same standards, and therefore every citizen will be in a position of having their 4th amendment protections violated.
So for me, the answer is to end the TSA.
It is truly amazing how far we will infringe on the liberties of our fellow Americans. This is where we must take a stand. What does the government have to do in order for people to understand this will not end until we decide it is enough? I will not fly until the body scanners are removed.
Steve Susman and David Smith
It is the choice of the airlines in these airports-Participate in tyranny and we will put you out of business. This time, the public will not bail you out. If the incumbents bail you out, we will get rid of them too.( We in Houston have joined forces with Oathkeeper Jay Stang(son of the late Alan Stang) and will organize a massive protest 11/24. David Smith and I are bringing in WAC Houston, the Houston Free Thinkers and more to combat this agregious rights violation) Planning begins immediately after the End the Fed Rally http://lptexas.org/meetup/end-fed-rally
I think it’s very telling that among the apologists for the TSA, no one has suggested the obvious way to resolve this nonsense.
I, for one am only flying privately because the minute some governmonkey touched me, my wife or any child, I’d probably end up with a felony on my hands. This thing is just a way to desensitize the public and destroy any sense of personal modesty.
Why must you appear naked before the Emperor and his minions? How can it be explained to a child that an adult ‘touching’ them inappropriately is “okay” if it’s an idiot with gloves? The whole thing flies in the face of being a “free” person with a government that is charged with protecting our individual rights.
The mental midget’s who think any of this makes them safer deserve their degradation, but I don’t. I am not afraid, to any degree of any so-called ‘threat’. I refuse to live in fear and under the delusion that somehow all this inconvenience and personal invasion makes me ‘safer’.
The obvious way to really make us “safer” is to simply declare Peace on the rest of the world and take away any reason for anyone to threaten any of us. Coupled with an armed Citizenry (yes, even on board the planes) we would all be as safe as is humanly possible. The Constitution was very well thought out, and the Declaration of Independence explicit in its intent
have refused to fly now for some time. I simply refuse to have my Fourth Amendment rights violated & I “walk my talk.” Until “The People” wake up to what is really going on ala Nazi Germany & fight with all we have against this (latest) assault on our civil liberties it will get worse! I am currently on vacation & doing “The road less traveled,”as I always do. It has amazed me that so many Americans are clueless as to what a truly beautiful Country we have. BOYCOTT the airlines! Tell Homeland Security that our LIBERTY means something to us. The sad part of my recent travels however are so many Liberties which have been taken away; something when I get back home I’ll be sharing a great deal about. Please be aware though that as usual we are also fighting the MEDIA & their propaganda machine. We must also spread the message that the bottom line to all of this is “Follow the Money!” And that it has NOTHING to do with “security” but also everything to do with CONTROL. “We the People” are the protectors of the Constitution, NOT the politicians & it is high time we began acting like it! If we do not stop this now, the next thing will be “checkpoints” for vehicles at all of our State borders, & I don’t think that is too far-fetched to believe.
The TSA is a red herring. They’ll concede and Republicans will take credit as liberators… Meanwhile we will still have war with Iran, the Fed won’t end, and the IRS will continue to terrorize Americans. We must stay focused and not be satisfied with false victories. We must not be satisfied with anything less than total liberty.

“Those who would give up essential liberty for a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin
This nation is a nation of delusional freedom today. It no longer resembles the national of our forefathers when the elected pass laws that violate and supersede the Constitution. We as a nation exist in a state of despotism and deny it claiming freedom which does not exist for U.S. under the law. Freedom is as real as a thought, a belief, a faith. It is the forgotten practice of agent-hood, and is the knowledge to make decisions and to take actions on ones own will or upon ones morality.
If we believe that liberty only exists because government allows it or that freedom is guaranteed by laws that dictate how individuals act and interact, then we are blinded and blinded unto a state of tyranny that we proclaim as liberty and we are doomed.
The reality is the government exists because the people permit it, and that liberty existed before governments and will continue even after they fall.
It is not the Government nor its laws that restrain me from killing another person it is my GOD given morality, the natural sense of right and wrong. It is not a “Red-light” law that prevents me from running a red light, it is my common sense and self-preservation that prevents me from pulling out into the intersection and being t-boned by another car.

“Following Orders” No Excuse for Sexual Assault!
Serving as I am here in Afghanistan many of you have asked me why I am here. I have replied that if asked to execute an illegal or immoral order I would refuse and I still hold to that. My point here is that were I a TSA agent…I would refuse orders to do what they are now doing. Those of you still clinging to the notions that our government is not corrupt and that it considers the defense of our liberty as anywhere near the priority that the founders did need look no farther than what is going on at the TSA. These are not solitary random acts of disgruntled agents which does not reflect the ethics of the rest of the agency…this administration and this agency are perpetrating these acts upon us knowing full well what they are doing and yet they tyrannize us anyway. When will you rise up America and fight for your freedom? Will it be after your sisters and your mothers and your wives are molested by government agents? When will you say that the degradations are too great? The founders who espoused to the notion that no exchange of freedom for security was a worthy bargain would be ashamed of what we have allowed already and I say it is time we told the government enough. Don’t fly if you can avoid it. Don’t go through the scanners if you must fly and video any and all searches to be used in court against the agents and agency at a later time. “Following orders” has never been a viable excuse for committing sexual assault and those of you being grope searched should seriously consider filling charges against even individual agents. WAKE UP AMERICA, ITS TIME TO FIGHT FOR LIBERTY
As a liberty candidate I’d like to start off with displaying the Fourth Amendment:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The Fourth Amendment was written in direct response to British general warrants where the Crown would grant general search powers to British law enforcement officials. These officials could search virtually any home, or person, they liked, at any time they liked, for any reason they liked but were not bound to having justification to do it, it could be on a whim or for folly.
The “right of people to be secure in their persons”, as already ruled by the supreme court, is your right to privacy and by being forced to display yourself naked, or face an intimate groping physical search, removes this right. If this can be done in airports, what is stopping the government from using this as a precedent for doing this in all public places? If, as a citizen, I was to perform any of these actions I would be jailed so how is it legal for the government to not be liable for breaking our battery, child abuse and child pornography laws?
The government is installed to preserve and protect our natural rights not strip them away, under any circumstance. The public is no safer now than we were before the Christmas bomber or September 11th. If someone is determined to bring down an aircraft there are methods available that are way beyond the technology of a strip search so believing that degrading people and stripping their rights makes them any safer is ludicrous at best. As we continue to move deeper and deeper into this “police state” we are telling the terrorists, they won. Their desire is to control through terrorizing and our government is completely following their desire.
‘Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium’- I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery. By willfully accepting the actions of our government we are accepting slavery as we are no longer the masters of our bodies, we are giving away that mastery to the government. As we give away our rights, we are also dissolving our republic and the rule of law which it was founded upon.
Where does it end? When do the people realize they have become slaves to the master in Washington? When do we fight back? If not today, when?
VIDEO! Ron Paul Introduces HR 6416: The American Traveler Dignity Act
Stepped-up security screening at airports in the wake of foiled terrorism plots has provoked an outcry from airline pilots and travelers, including parents of children who say they are too intrusive. (Reuters)
Since the inception of the porn scanners at our airports the Freedom Movement at large has been up in arms about it; blogging, commenting, and making the case for the unconstitutionality, backwardness and ineffectiveness of such intrusive electronic searches and intimate pat downs.
