Liberty Net: February 12, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

A CORONAL MASS EJECTION event almost blanked the 75 meter band this week — many signals were more than 50 dB down from normal strength — but the check-ins to the Liberty Net, and exciting ideas and debate, continued at an energetic pace nevertheless.

Listen: Liberty Net 2/12

Here’s a brief summary of some of the ideas put forth this time on amateur radio’s most impressive discussion net:

• In a recent marketing campaign, J.P. Morgan has been practically begging its customers to let it hold their physical gold. What Morgan isn’t telling them is that the firm is often shorting gold on the market and “borrowing” its customers’ assets (without compensation) when they must cover, to avoid driving up the price. All of this is directly contrary to their customers’ interests and constitutes fraud. (36 minutes)

• Is race-mixing Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas going to get in trouble over the “financial disclosure” laws of the very establishment he has supported his entire professional life? (44 minutes)

Liberty Net: February 5, 2011

ON SATURDAY NIGHT the ionosphere went almost into shutdown mode, with all signals weak and short-skip signals almost nonexistent except for a fluttery backscatter — but that didn’t stop a flood of new stations from checking into America’s longest-running amateur radio discussion net, the Liberty Net. That just goes to show that even when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate, well-engineered home HF radio setups can still communicate on a continental scale.

Here are some of the subjects that participants discussed this week:

• This week, a Florida judge ruled that “Obamacare,” with its unprecedented compulsory purchase requirements, is unconstitutional — a decision also reached recently in Virginia. (22 minutes)

• A sitting governor of North Dakota was removed from office when it was found that he did not meet constitutional eligibility requirements, so there is a precedent for removing Obama under similar circumstances. (24 minutes)

THE LIBERTY NET continues to become more and more well-known, with numerous new stations hearing about us and checking in every week. The Net Control Station, W1WCR, maintains a list of check-ins and everyone gets his turn — but with the large number of newcomers, that can sometimes take an hour!

Here’s my summary of just a few of the topics discussed this time on amateur radio’s most exciting net:

• Isn’t it ironic that Obama is scolding the Egyptian government for cutting off the Internet, while at the same time the Washington regime is demanding a law that gives the executive branch an Internet “kill switch” that would do exactly the same thing in this country? (1 hour 9 minutes)

• A professor at the US Naval Academy (USNA) says that his school will “do anything” to attract and promote non-White students. He says that there is a two-tiered system in place under which non-Whites are given easier assignments, enjoy lower admission and promotion standards, and receive free “unlimited tutoring” that White students aren’t allowed to get. The USNA’s commander admits as much, saying that “diversity” is the Academy’s “number one priority.” (1 hour 32 minutes)

Liberty Net: January 22, 2011

THERE WAS AN AMAZING debate this week between long-time Liberty Net participants and some neoconservatives who checked into the net at about the three hour point. The neocons support the regime in Washington and the so-called “war on terror,” and oppose any dissenting views on the Middle East or 9/11. When the sparks flew between the opposing parties, the frank words that ensued were very interesting indeed.

Here’s a small selection of the topics discussed this time on amateur radio’s longest-running discussion net:

• Why is the Bank of America now demanding that all its employees and contractors hand over a list of — and control over — all their assets as a condition of employment? (30 minutes)

• In Oakland, California — which is 90% non-White — a second grade teacher was recently suspended for asking students to disrobe and to engage in oral intercourse in the classroom. (35 minutes)
