Listen: Liberty Net 1/23

Here’s my summary of and commentary on some of the subjects discussed on the net this week:

• In Stockholm, police have been ordered not to report any information on the race or ethnicity of killers, rapists, or other criminals — because to do so might be “racist.” If Swedes ever retake their country from those who misrule them, they will need to have a very large quantity of stout rope. (11 minutes)

• In Pakistan, a 15-year-old boy cut off his own hand because he misheard the words of his Imam at a religious meeting. This kind of act is disturbing on its face, of course, but what does it imply about the level of true belief and fanaticism among the invaders now flooding Western nations? (14 minutes)

Liberty Net: May 7, 2011

THE LIBERTY NET continued its free speech traditions this week, with ideas and debates sometimes intense — and sometimes worthy of a modern-day School of Athens. If you’d like to join in, get an amateur radio license — they’re easier to obtain than ever before — and add your voice to the check-ins.

Listen: Liberty Net 5/7

Here are just a few examples of what you can hear on this week’s recording:

• Police in some jurisdictions are seizing motorists’ cell telephones during random traffic stops — and inspecting the personal data therein, all without a search warrant. Some freedom-minded citizens are responding by always carrying a throwaway phone that can be given up without giving up privacy. (6 minutes)

The Last Roundup, the radio program of N2SAG, one of the Liberty Net’s leading participants, is now on 5110 kHz every Friday at 9PM Eastern (0100 UTC). (22 minutes)

Liberty Net: April 16, 2011

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

A HUGE RAIN AND WIND storm enveloped eastern North America on Saturday, sent static into the ionosphere, and knocked down antennas — including N2IRJ’s low-noise Beverage. But back-ups were brought into play within an hour and the longest-running discussion net on amateur radio — the Liberty Net — brought its hallmark intellectual excitement to the airwaves in excellent form.

Listen: Liberty Net 4/16

Here’s a small sampling of some of the subjects brought up this time:

• In Chicago’s schools, students are now forbidden to bring lunches from home. Unless they have medical exemptions, students must buy government-provided lunches — brown bags from home will be confiscated. (18 minutes)

• Why is the regime in Washington spending $20 million on a Pakistani version of Sesame Street? Since the US version of the show was a pioneer in brainwashing children to accept multiracialism, the reason for the funding is doubtlessly to push some kind of propaganda. (1 hour 16 minutes)

Liberty Net: November 6, 2010

by Kevin Strom, WB4AIO

SUNSPOTS ARE UP, but our hemisphere gets less and less exposure to them as Winter approaches, making for some strange propagation, with the 75 meter skip going long, then short, and then long again. Some of the stronger Liberty Net regulars were down in strength this week, while a few of the western stations came in much better than usual. The ideas were as varied as the signal strengths, as listeners heard reports from as far afield as Havana and China as well as from a Rand Paul victory celebration in Kentucky.

Listen: 11/6 Liberty Net

Here are a just a few of the topics covered this time on amateur radio’s most consistently intelligent and exciting net:
