Word is the Crypto Six trial has been moved from November to December, with jury selection starting on December 6th at Federal Court Church in Concord, NH. Recently more of the Six took plea “deals” for victimless “crimes”, and now I am the only one left proceeding to trial. I am facing approximately 420 years in prison if convicted of all counts. No victim, no crime. Bitcoin is not a crime.
There’s also news about the proposed “Ballad of the Crypto Six” documentary film, which has recently switched its fundraiser to Indiegogo and begun offering various benefits for financial support. Depending on your contribution you can score T shirts and caps, to dinner with one of the Crypto 6 and even to co-host one or more episodes of Free Talk Live! If you think this subject deserves its own documentary, please watch the nine-minute trailer and join the Indiegogo:
Here is the trailer:
It was about ten degrees Fahrenheit at around 6am on March 16th, 2021 when dozens of armed agents from the FBI, IRS, USPS, ATF, and Keene Police swarmed onto the duplex containing the Free Talk Live studio. They smashed in windows and a front door, set off explosions, flew in drones, and held multiple peaceful bitcoin activists at gunpoint. Simultaneous raids were being conducted in multiple other locations, with six people arrested in total. They were since dubbed “the Crypto Six” by supporters.
One had her charges dropped and three have taken plea deals despite never harming another human being. Two remain, facing hundreds of years in prison for completely victimless, made-up financial “crimes” regarding bitcoin.
Now, more than a year later, the FBI has returned the surveillance DVRs they took from the property. This is some of the footage taken at the scene of the Free Talk Live studio in Keene, NH:
I had the pleasure of speaking from the main stage at 2022, the biggest, sold-out Porcfest ever. My speech was about the history of Free Talk Live and the FBI’s obsession with the Free State Project, specifically . Thank you to Dennis Pratt and the rest of the Porcfest crew for having me back!
Here’s the full speech and Q&A:
Thank you to Jim Babb for speaking out years ago and Rodger Paxton for laying the groundwork for having me back to Porcfest.
This year, I was tremendously honored to , TALKERS Magazine’s Freedom of Speech Award. Sadly, due to the insane bail restrictions on me in the case, I was unable to attend TALKERS’ NYC convention to receive the award. Thankfully, Free Talk Live’s co-hosts Mark Edge and Captain Kickass were in attendance and Mark accepted the award while Captain recorded video.
Here’s the full presentation including the very kind introduction by TALKERS’ publisher, Michael Harrison, who called me, “the greatest champion of free speech that we have”. That’s probably too kind, but I sure do appreciate his sentiment. Mark then read aloud .
Thank you to the audience for listening, TALKERS’ staff for choosing me for this awesome award, and Mark for receiving it on-stage. If you missed Michael Harrison’s interview of me, you can listen to it here.
I was honored to be invited to speak on a panel about Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) regarding them being a moral hazard. Many government gangs are moving towards implementing a CBDC and that is very bad news for financial freedom. Here is the full 22 minute panel discussion. Thank you to Chris from for hosting the conference.
