Several mostly libertarian activist bitcoin enthusiasts were arrested and indicted by FBI in Keene, NH for “wire fraud and participating in a conspiracy to commit wire fraud,” according to Robert Wenzel. Those people indicted include Ian Freeman of the Free Talk Live radio show, Colleen Fordham, Renee Spinella, Andrew Spinella, Nobody (who had changed his name from Rich Paul to “Nobody”), and Aria DiMezzo (a transgender former candidate for Cheshire County sheriff). Freeman is charged with “money laundering and operating a continuing financial crimes enterprise. Freeman and DiMezzo also are charged with operating an unlicensed money transmitting business,” according to Wenzel.
Now, I’m sure that FBI, one of the most corrupt and dishonest government agencies in Amerika, is aware of many, many people, maybe hundreds or even thousands of people, all across the country who could theoretically be charged with some sort of financial disobedience, bitcoin-related or otherwise. As Harvey Silverglate would refer to, most people unknowingly commit “Three Felonies a Day,” and all that. But clearly in my view FBI are targeting these activists for solely political reasons.
I think they are getting Freeman for his Free State Project involvement as well as otherwise in-your-face protests and demonstrations against the State. For example, Freeman’s and Nobody’s protests in front of Governor Chris Sununu’s house and the state attorney general’s house regarding Covid restrictions. They have had demonstrations or protests several times in recent months outside those horrible bureaucrats’ homes. And also, Nobody had a run for governor challenging Sununu, along with Karen Testerman. And Aria DiMezzo ran a losing campaign against the Cheshire County sheriff. I’m not familiar with the other names. So, I’m seeing some connection here. Did Sununu in some way contact crony pals associated with FBI to instigate this action? I’m not accusing Sununu of anything, only asking.
But since when do Swamp-entrenched politicians use the State apparatus, especially the national security apparatus, to go after their political opponents? I’m being sarcastic, of course. We know why the FBI went after Mike Flynn and especially Roger Stone, yet actual criminals like James Comey and John Brennan get away with their crimes.
But, sadly, that’s life here in USSA, Amerika.
OMG, I’ve been very critical of Chris Sununu, especially here and here. Does that mean that he or FBI will go after me now? No, I’m not saying that Sununu is responsible for the FBI’s bogus indictments of some local anti-State activists. I’m just saying that we know Sununu has a lot of clout, especially given his father’s connections with the Bush family and so on. I hope I’m wrong, of course.
The Sununus and the Bushes are a couple of terrible Swamp families, in my view, in addition to the Kennedys and the Clintons. Yech.
