Liberty Net: March 24, 2012

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

WHEN THE LIBERTY NET begins, people listen — on 75 meters direct, or via N2IRJ’s — or N2SAG’s — or my receiver on one of the net’s live feed pages. Although most listeners and participants are in the US, the net has an international reach and reputation.

Here are some of the issues discussed and debated during this week’s Liberty Net:

• Greg Smith, an account executive with Goldman Sachs, recently resigned and published an open letter confessing the unbelievably crooked practices of his former firm — typical of the bankers, who feed like vultures on the rest of us. (3 minutes)

• On March 16, the Washington regime issued an outrageously unconstitutional “Executive Order” claiming the power to seize anyone’s property at any time, with no reason being given. (6 minutes)

Liberty Net: January 29, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

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: September 18, 2010

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE TOTALLY BOGUS nature of the Republican establishment was a major focus of the Liberty Net this last week of Summer, and propagation coöperated to make the dialogue audible across most of the continent.

Expect even better conditions as the Fall season approaches and static dies down.

Here’s a small sample of the items discussed this week on amateur radio’s most exciting net:

• The criminals in Congress are seriously discussing seizing private pension plans and forcibly merging them into the bankrupt “Social Security” system. (20 minutes)

• Did you know that a “dirty capitalist” American business owner made two recent broadcasts over Radio Havana in Cuba? And did you know that he was a regular Liberty Net participant? (37 minutes)

Liberty Net: July 17, 2010

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE LIBERTY NET is one place on the radio dial where there are no government or commercial “gatekeepers” — and it’s a place where thoughtful and intelligent people are drawn — and therefore it’s one of the most informative and thought-provoking information sources anywhere.

Here are a few of this week’s topics:

• New York governor Patterson is apparently under attack by evil forces, because he’s decided to wear a “Kabballah bracelet” to ward them off. (The “Kabballah” is a form of medieval Jewish witchcraft that is enjoying a renaissance among the thoughtlessly trendy.) (38 minutes)

• Some prankster has arranged it so that if you enter “illuminati” spelled backwards, and add dot com, into your Internet browser, you will be redirected to the Web site of the National Security Agency. (42 minutes)

• Barack Obama is not an idiot, no matter how harmful his policies appear to be to his constituency: He is the quintessential blackmailable front man for the money power, with a “minority” cachet to provide a means to dehumanize any serious critics as “racists.” In this role he performs brilliantly.

Liberty Net for Week of May 15-22

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

GOOD propagation helped the conversations on the Liberty Net this week, and the range of information and opinion presented was impressive. One participant ridiculed those who question the authenticity of Obama’s alleged birth certificate, while others on the Net believe it’s a phony — and Kenyan claims that Obama was born there buttress that belief.

The stations that tried to disrupt the Net last week with crude remarks — but got no takers — resorted to transmitting random sound effects. But the legitimate participants ignored them and they had little effect, except to encourage a brief switch in frequency.

Here are some of this week’s highlights, as recorded on May 15th by N2IRJ:

• As the utter bankruptcy of the United States proceeds apace, California is paying all those due money from the state with possibly-worthless IOUs — and Illinois is paying nothing. (56 minutes)

• Are the riots of Greeks who oppose globalization (and who oppose the austerity programs that the banks are demanding in order to pay back their questionable “debts”) the moral equivalent of the Black riots in the US incited by Martin Luther King? (59 minutes)

Liberty Net for Week of May 8-15

THE WEEKLY Liberty Net continues to offer some of the most interesting and thought-provoking QSOs to be found anywhere in amateur radio.

There was some intentional interference this week, but the illegal jammers got no takers for their obscene and illegal interjections, and soon dried up and blew away.

Liberty Net for Week of May 1-8

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THE WEEKLY Liberty Net was on the air in fine style this week, with lots of debate and controversy over politics, finance, the invasion of America on its southern border, and the malicious use to which the tragic oil spill might be put by foreign forces determined to keep America militarily engaged in the Middle East.

Liberty Net for Week of April 24 – May 1

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

THIS WEEK a computer crash caused N2IRJ’s recording to be lost — but we do have a partial recording from an online receiver, so some of this week’s Liberty Net (recorded 4/24) can still be heard. The Liberty Net is amateur radio’s premiere and longest-running discussion net, on the air since 1974. The Net Control Station is published author and antenna innovator Victor Misek, W1WCR.

It was good to note the return of Vern, W9FAM, a broadcast station owner and talk show host in his own right, who’s been covering politics since he sat in on town hall meetings run by Obama predecessor and role model Franklin Roosevelt. Vern has been absent from the Net for several years. He puts in an excellent, high-quality signal.

Liberty Net for Week of April 17-24

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

LATELY there’s been some real disagreement and debate on the Liberty Net, the longest-running discussion net in Amateur Radio history. Some participants believe that virtually all politicians are liars and totally corrupt servants of the moneyed oligarchs, except perhaps for a tiny number of right-libertarians like Ron and Rand Paul, and populists like James Traficant and Eliot Spitzer. Other “Liberty Netters” believe that the only exceptions to criminal politicians can be found in left-progressives like Dennis Kucinich and the late Ted Kennedy. Is this conflict resolvable? The two sides also have diametrically opposed views on the Tea Party movement. Will patriots who oppose the oligarchs ever come to a consensus? I don’t know, but the free speech and cross-fertilization of ideas are bracing and thought-provoking.

Liberty Net for Week of April 10-17

Our ancestors sought to "secure the blessings of Liberty" for their descendants. They did not have the illusion, common today, that widely divergent peoples could practice, desire, or even understand freedom.

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

PROPAGATION for this week’s Liberty Net began well but went very long later in the evening, making some normally big signals fade — but N2IRJ’s low-noise antenna brought most participants’ signals in with good intelligibility nevertheless. The Liberty Net — one of the oldest and certainly the most exciting net in amateur radio — is on the air every Saturday night at 10PM Eastern Time on (or near, within roughly 10 kHz) 3950 kHz.

• Obama was soundly booed when he threw baseball’s ceremonial “first pitch” this week. (21 minutes)
