November 28, 2013 04:10 PM PST
Lots available for you in this production! Big thanks to Sophia for joining GG to discuss the treatment of Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning by the US government as it illegally holds the whistleblower and denies him certain medical treatments. Gard and Soph go beyond the story to investigate whether such treatment is something someone who volunteers for the military should morally expect.
They also discuss differing views on the role of government. Gard takes the libertarian view while Soph handles the socialist side! And then, they talk about the anniversary of Doctor Who! (No, there aren't any spoilers! The conversation was recorded prior to the broadcast of the show!)
That and music by the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club "Rise or Fall", and Goldfrapp (new from Goldfrapp) "Drew".

Be Seeing you!Liberty Conspiracy - 11-25-13 Authors Trish and Rob MacGregor Delve into Synchronicity, Unexplained Phenomena & Their Book "The Synchronocity Highway"
November 25, 2013 06:10 PM PST
First thing first. Big, BIG thanks to Trish and Rob MacGregor, two best-selling, award-winning authors who took the time to chat with Gardner Goldsmith on the show. What a great way to get away from some of the pressure-filled stories in the news.
In this program, we bring you the conversation Trish, Rob and Gard had about their new book, "The Synchronicity Highway". In it, they explore strange coincidences that might not be just that. They discuss how even theories of quantum physics allows for the possibility that coincidence might have significance beyond statistics and probability. They talk about remote viewing, books that predicted the sinking of a ship uncannily like the Titanic, precognitive dreams, and more! Look for the new book here: http://www.amazon.com/The-Synchronicity-Highway-Coincidence-Paranormal-ebook/dp/B00FQIZUE2
And the website for the book, which links to all their other sites is here!
Hope you enjoy the conversation! And we hope you grab a copy of the book! It's fascinating!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy -11-14-13 - Big Revelations Re Local and Fed Cops Spying Phones on City Streets
November 14, 2013 05:30 PM PST
Big tips of the hat to InfoWars and StoryLeak dot com for their excellent coverage of this new, and important, revelation: that the DHS and local "law enforcement" (they seem to like to break laws when it serves their purposes -- ya know, things like the US Constitution and ancient common law) are using wifi boxes on city streets (like Seattle) to spy on anyone with wifi connectivity in their phones, iPods, etc.
Patently unconstitutional, and a waste. We hope you like our analysis of the issue, and our idea that non-government arrangements would offer many more options to people that would allow them to control their rights.

November 11, 2013 03:06 PM PST
Welcome back, and thanks fo-checkin' us out. In this brief production, we study an essay that appeared September 5 via Bloomberg. It took two people to write this editorial, and we thought it would be worthwhile to dissect its content and presentation.
We hope you find the thoughts we offer to counter the claims of these writers. Their piece is so rife with assumptions and Straw Man arguments, so full of rhetorical coloring without real definitions (even as they say they want to define things), that it is a valuable example of the left-statist "criticism" of libertarian ideas.
Feel free to listen, and to comment at our website! We're at www.libertyconspiracy.com!
Music? We open with "Lorelei" by the Cocteau Twins, then hit "Mirror in the Bathroom" by the English Beat, and finish with "Primitive P Painters" by Felt (with Elizabeth Frasier of Cocteau Twins doing backing vocals).
Thanks for conspiring!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 10-17-13 - What CHASE Bank's Capital Controls Reveal About Fractional Reserve Banking, Freedom, and Economics, and The Rancidness of the Nobel Prize for "Ecnomics"
October 17, 2013 10:20 PM PDT
The audio intro says more, but we'll tell you now that this pod should give folks who aren't familiar with political-economics a very good understanding of what "fractional reserve banking" is, and why the Chase move to restrict money movement is incredibly significant. It reveals what happens when a banking system is based on "fractional reserve" banking in order to "expand employment" (it backfires every time).
We also talk about the Nobel Prize for economics, applying logic to one of the writings of one of the 2013 winners, and we get to discuss the excellent victory of Mark Cuban over the SEC in the US!

John Lydon "The Animal Speaks", Midnight Oil "Somebody's Tryin' to Tell Me Something", Lack of Afro "The Importance of Elsewhere", Maps "Liquid Sugar", and Midnight Oil "What Goes On".

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 10-14-13 - Secret FISA Court Rules Data Collection OK, Conflicts of Interest for "Experts" on Syria, More on Spooner, w Guest Furb
October 14, 2013 03:10 PM PDT
We're fighting statism hard, as we shoot members of the Conspiracy a NEW production! This time, Gardner Goldsmith welcomes Furb, the founder of The freedom Book Club (www.FreedomBookClub.com) to discuss the recent FISA court ruling that NSA collection of private so-called "meta-data" is perfectly fine. We get into the new revelation that many so-called "experts" pushing the "immediate need" for the US gubment to attack Syria were actually employees of defense contractors or had other conflicts of interest. Did the pop news cats at CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS mention this? Hardly at all. And then Gard and Furb talk about the recent revelation (lots of those revelations coming thanks to the "alternative" media like Anti-War dot com, Alex Jones,, Lew Rockwell, Free Talk Live, Benn Swann and the Conspiracy) that a nuclear warhead was secretly moved from Texas to South Carolina at the same time that the swine Lindsey Graham was strangely telling people that they better get behind bombing Syria or else a nuke could go off in Charleston Bay. Strange doings...
All that, and music by WIRE "Hard Currency", The Horrors "New Ice Age", WIRE "On Returning", Throw Rag "She Don't Want To (She Don't Care)" and "Swingset Superman", the Sons of Hercules "Numb", "Easy Action", and "Different Kind of Ugly", and we close the show with a new song by Goldfrapp called "Annabel", from their new disc "Tales of Us".
Hope you like it and will spread the word about what we do!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 10-12-13 The Anti-Liberty, Bad Economics of Insider Trading Prohibitions
October 13, 2013 04:26 PM PDT
Welcome back! In this production, we fine folks at the up-and-coming Liberty Conspiracy give you an expanded look at the libertarian argument against government statutes prohibiting so-called "insider trading". We look at a current example of the statutes and political forces going after Mark Cuban, and why the attacks by government are not ethically or morally sound. Then, we explain why these kinds of laws are also not economically wise!
This is an expanded version of the portion in our last podcast that discussed this! We hope you like it!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 10-11-13 - Two Big Lessons in Political-Economics: Govt Parks v Private, The Errors of Insider Trading Bans
October 11, 2013 05:02 PM PDT
Halloween is just weeks away, and the scares are increasing in frequency. Take a look at how the politicians have rigged their fake "shut-down" to effect certain things (most of them unconstitutional) but not effect others (again, most unconstitutional, but the programs the politicians enjoy have often been left unscathed). In this mighty pod, Gardner Goldsmith (who's new book is called "BITE" and comes out soon via Pendragon press dot net!) pulls a lesson from the jaws of the political animal, seeing the differences between how the gubment operates something (even with the best of intentions of Park Rangers considered) and how private operators work in a competitive system. He also takes a stab at a govt policy that is often unquestioned: the prohibition of so-called "insider trading". These two lessons are the kinds of things most economics classes don't get into, but we think they are of great value! Hope you do, too! And we hope you'll spread the word about us by linking to a friend or loved one, or both, or an enemy!
Music by Girls Against Boys "Super-fire", "Click Click", "Disco Six Six Six", "Cruise Your (New Baby Fly) Self", The Dukes of Stratosphear (correct spelling) "What in the World?", A skit from Dead Ringers featuring John Culshaw as the 4th Doctor, and The Trashmen "Surfin' Bird"!

October 07, 2013 02:49 PM PDT
Big, BIG thanks to star reporter of the alternative press, Eric Scheiner for joining us to talk about what he covers in DC, the insane spending by politicians and how the collectivists tell people they are "civil" and their opponents aren't, then proceed to attack and label their opponents with all kinds of ad-hominem slurs. We get into specific programs and spending, talk about fake deficit numbers, insane "closures" during the non-shut-down, and discuss how the double-standards even existed during the "founding" era.
That plus an opening story about Gardner Goldsmith's appearance at a political panel for high school students, and how collectivist hypocrisy was so obvious, at times it seemed cruel to even bring it out right away! Take a listen, and spread the word! Send this to some of your collectivist friends and see what they think!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 10-1-13 On the Federal "Shutdown", Private Fundraising and Showing Real Value, with Furb!
October 01, 2013 06:41 PM PDT
Welcome back! We've got an anarchistic, action-packed mega-pod in this production of Liberty Conspiracy Audios! In it, we cover info on the supposed "Federal Shutdown" (we can only wish it were real), and what the machine won't stop doing. We talk about how the federal government gets its cash, and how people could show what they REALLY valued if they were allowed to voluntarily fund so-called "services". You want to protect land? Show you value it? You want to help someone get food? Don't force someone else to do it. Gardner Goldsmith is joined by Furb, the founder of www.FreedomBookClub.com to discuss the mirage of the gubment shutdown and the voluntary ways people can show the things they value! Plus a fascinating discussion of the books at the Freedom Book Club!
AND great music! Like: "New Ice Age", "Gloves", "Sheena Is A Parasite", "Count in Fives", and "Oceans Burning" by The Horrors!

September 11, 2013 06:07 PM PDT
We continue our fight for freedom as the Liberty Conspiracy is joined by FURB, the founder of the Freedom Book Club, to discuss the big national-international issue - US militarism and Syria, local cops getting military assault vehicles, and two stories that let us look at some deeper intellectual concepts.
The second stories revolve around the USDA and FDA, and how they are not incentivized to "protect" anyone. Wait until you hear what the USDA is going to do for the big chicken agri-businesses, contrary to the free market!
Enjoy the show! We have only two full songs here, both by Girls Against Boys, "From Now On" and "Psychic Know-How", and they are pretty damn good!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 9-1-13 Liberty Conspiracy Site Banned in China, Studying US Claims re Syria, Medical Fascism Law and Higher Insurance Costs
September 01, 2013 04:59 PM PDT
Welcome back to the Conspiracy! We've got a few pressing issues to discuss, so let's lay them out. First, as some folks know, we recently discovered that the LC website has been banned in China. Interesting. The podcasts are still making it into the country.
After we give the details on that, we delve into the claims of US politicians like John Kerry and Barack Obama re Syria, and then reveal that they have not presented any facts to support their claims. As of this writing, Obama has stepped down from taking unilateral executive branch action (which would be unconstitutional), but is saying he will wait for Congressional "permission to use military force", which is also unconstitutional. The only powers granted the Congress to get the President to lead troops are 1) a Declaration of War (capitalize the W), and 2) the issuance of Letters of Marque and Reprisal (to let him hire mercenaries). That's it. War has certain rules. Which is why the Constitution specifies that term.
Next, we take a look at the higher costs for health insurance in the US since 2009, something that runs contrary to what the President claimed would happen, but follows all the laws of markets when politicians place regulatory burdens on them that force them to offer certain services or tell them how to offer them. Gard explains!
That and music - a couple songs to keep this pod short and get it to you fast: We have full songs by The Horrors "Sheena Is A Parasite", and "Who Can Say". Visit us at www.libertyconspiracy.com
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 8-29-13 Dissecting US Claims re Syria, Would Anarcho Societies Devolve into Rule by the Strongest?
August 29, 2013 02:16 PM PDT
Welcome back! You've got yourself a bigtime MEGA-POD here, fellow Conspirator... In this one, GG and Furb explore the claims being made by the Obama Administration (and the Brits) that the Assad regime in Syria used chemical weapons against people in that nation. We also look at a fundamental question that if often posed to anarcho-capitalists (ie voluntarists), which is, as the title implies, "Wouldn't an anarcho society simply turn into a de-facto government/state run by the folks with the most powerful police agency?
Good information here. Plus a refutation of a statement made by David Friedman about so-called "Market Failure", which is a HUGE misnomer and runs contrary to the reality of what a market is!
That plus music by Broadcast "Come on, Let's Go", Government Issue with "Jaded Eyes", sundry clips from The Stooges, The Cult, The Demons, Killing Joke, and Massive Attack, and The Cult "The Witch".

August 21, 2013 07:55 AM PDT
Welcome back! Thanks for choosing us for yer podcast pleasure...
In this production, we look at a number of key breaking stories, including the revelation that the UK government laid siege to the offices of "The Guardian" newspaper, and destroyed their hard drives (a stupid and fruitless act on the part of the government). We look at what reporter Glenn Greenwald has said about the nine-hour detention of his partner at Heathrow Airport, and Furb and Gard study the malicious effects of professional licensing laws. That, and commentary about addiction, and a look at one of the excellent essays on licensing that is offered in Dr. Mary Ruwart's book "Healing Our World in An Age of Aggression" - Lots of good stats and citations of books in this when we offer our info on licensing... We hope you like it!
The show features music by The Psychedelic Furs "Entertain Me", some transitional cuts by Agent Provocateur, The Demons, "Democracy" by The Damned, a snippet from Killing Joke, some comedy by the Onion, Grinderman "Depth Charge Ethel", and the full tube of "Red Tape" by Agent Provocateur (the lead singer of which is Malcolm McLaren's son).

In this pod-only production, Gardner Goldsmith welcomes back Soph, from London, to engage in a friendly debate about the merits or demerits of Marx's political-philosophical-economic ideology. It's a great exchange, and we hope it helps folks reach their own conclusions, or investigate further!

August 13, 2013 01:17 PM PDT
In this special spunk-o-matic, mega-huge pod, we offer a careful study of the lies of the current US Prez and his pals as they comment on spying, we look at breaking stories that refute their claims, and look at the unconstitutionality of FISA courts. We also look at former NSA, CIA head Michael Hayden, the number of innocent people killed by US drones in Yemen over the past two weeks, and the latest on the NYC "Stop and Frisk" program. We talk to the mighty Furb, creator of www.freedombookclub.com, about all this and new information on a lawsuit against Monsanto!
A tonne of information, pertinent and historically accurate. Plus music by Witch "Seer", Suicidal tendencies "Institutionalized", The Damned "Plan 9, Channel 7", The Prodigy "Spitfire", and the Psychedelic Furs "Soap Commercial" (live, from their Peel Sessions)...

July 30, 2013 07:21 PM PDT
Thanks for joining us! We've decided to make our podcast for today shorter than it was in its initial release. A few hours have passed, and it's our opinion that the intro on that first version was too long, so we've cut it back and let the content do most of the talking.
What's in this show?
In this standalone production, we offer you that hep thing called "Liberty 101", where we pit logic, history and our libertarian/voluntarist principles against the rhetoric of a popular Marxist professor named Richard D. Wolff. Gard and Furb extended the conversation beyond what they could offer live on the radio, and added a lot more content, as we defended the individual against the invasions of a guy who would create obfuscating arguments to excuse the use of force and group control over individuals.
We hope you like it. During the first seg, just try to concentrate on his silly words.

July 24, 2013 11:01 AM PDT
During the Independence Day holiday that many people were taking, President Obama surreptitiously signed an Executive Order claiming the power to control and shut down any form of "broadcasting". It is not only unconstitutional as an invasion on telecommunications via the unconstitutional FCC, it also does not just specify just electronic or radio telecommunications (bad as that would be). It speaks to "broadcasting", which could cover someone speaking through a bullhorn to a large audience. In this program, Gardner Goldsmith explores the Executive Order, the history of Executive Orders, the history of the unconstitutional FCC, and how strange it is that, once more, most left-statists who supposedly support free speech have been mum on this.
Music by: Supertramp "Crime of the Century", The Arctic Monkeys "Don't Sit Down, 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair", and the Psychedelic Furs: "Dumb Waiters", "It Goes On", "I Wanna Sleep with You" and "Parade" (listen to the great drumming on that, especially towards the end.

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 7-18-13 Beck's Mistake about Mos Def, Cops Monitor Your Every Move, The Libertarian View of Govts Destroying Condemned Homes
July 18, 2013 11:43 AM PDT
Welcome back to the conspiracy for freedom. In this program, EL G Grande studies the strange phenomenon of citizens accepting the idea of the government destroying homes that don't conform to government "codes". Then, he hits a breaking story: the revelation that local and state police are using your license plates to electronically monitor every route you drive. The data is stored, sometimes indefinitely. But regardless of whether it's stored, the very act of monitoring you is an abridgement of the 4th Amendment, because your license plate is tied to your ID and that means you are not anonymous. That, plus some props to Mos Def (Yasiin Bey) for his epic courage showing what the Gitmo 'detainees' suffer at the hands of their military captors (what kind of mind does that do people who haven't even been tried for any crimes?). Hope you like the exploration of real freedom, and dig the music: Love Spit Love "More than Money" (a section), Jurassic 5 and Mos Def (Jayo), some bits by Killing Joke, Girls Against Boys, The Stooges, WIRE, Fu Manchu, and then the full song "More than Money", by Love Spit Love.

Thanks for joining us! We have a special, non-radio production available for you to hear and spread to friends, and in this we concentrate on some of the fears people express about anarcho, or voluntaryist political/philosophical ideology. How would it work? Why wouldn't it devolve into a battle of the biggest private police force? How would disputes be handled? What about protecting children?
Gardner Goldsmith and Furb (founder of the Freedom Book Club, found at www.freedombookclub.com) discuss some of these issues, in this the first of a series of special productions in which we attempt to attract more people to the foundational ethics of freedom.

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 6-11-13 Special Concentrated Re-Edit of PRISM-FISA-4th Amendment Analysis and History
June 11, 2013 05:20 PM PDT
Greetings! We've decided to give our PRISM-FISA and Fourth Amendment studies an extra punch. In this production, we've taken the key elements of our 6-10-13 podcast and rendered them into one core program that spells out the PRISM controversy, what it means to the 4th Amendment, and where the FISA act, which is being used as the "statutory justification" for PRISM, originated. We also explain how none of the FISA law comports to the actual wording of the US Bill of Rights, specifically, the 4th Amendment.
And this time, Gardner Goldsmith has taken one of the music pieces from the original pod and worked his editing magic to make it a fitting "F-U" to the liars in politics who trample on rights and tell you they're not, or that it's for "your own good." Listen for "Rockets Are Red" at the start of the production.

Thanks once more for being interested in liberty! In this program, we talk to Sophia, from London, and delve into the terrible murder of a military man on the streets of southeast London. We discuss the strange video that was recorded as one of the killers offered his reasons for the awful crime, and we discuss how the salient parts of the man's words are being completely overlooked by US and UK media. Then, we talk about the world-wide protests against Monsanto, a corporation that should not be defended by backers of free markets! Lots of information about the policies and actions of the corporation and its political/government pals, as well as some great music from Time Zone "World Destruction", Schtum "Skydiver", Grinderman "Depth Charge Ethel", The Horrors "Sheena Is a Parasite", The Cynics "Turn Me Loose", The Golden Palominos "The Animal Speaks", The Psychedelic Furs "Flowers" and "Soap Commercial" (the live, Peel Session version)!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy 5-8-13 EU Bill Would BAN Non-Govt Approved Plants and Seeds, with Guest, Furb
May 08, 2013 05:42 PM PDT
Furb, the founder of the Freedom Book Club, joins GG in this program that concentrates on the evils of a proposal in Europe: a bill to outlaw any seeds and plants not approved by the EU politicians. As Gardner Goldsmith shows, this idea goes back to the 1960's, and IS something that "Conspiracy Theorist" folks have been warning was in the works.
We give them the credit they deserve, and try to sound the alarm. Genetic fascism is just around the bend when it comes to food in the EU.
Music? Well, we offer The Buzzcocks "Something's Gone Wrong Again", Killing Joke "The Wait", The Pagans "Eyes of Satan" (a bunch of 17 yr old Ohio punks), The Demons "I'll Make you Sorry", Curtis Mayfield "Superfly", Schmoyoho's new one "Dead Giveaway" based on interviews with Charles Ramsey, the guy who found three missing/kidnapped girls in Ohio, Motorhead "Killed by Death", WIRE "12 Times U" (a new play on and remix of their classic "1,2, x U"), Apollo Smile "Dune Buggy", and Paul Weller "7&3 Was the Striker's Name" off "Wake Up the Nation". Hope you like the production and we hope you'll spread the word about our shows and our site!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 5-2-13 Updated: Slate Magazine's Perpetuation of Fallacy That Gubment Can Suspend Rights "In Exigent Circumstances"
May 02, 2013 01:01 PM PDT
Includes more material. Apologies for the shortened pod earlier on 5-2.
We have noticed that since the suspension of the Bill of Rights during the search for the Boston Marathon suspects, many pop media members have been working hard to construct all kinds of seedy rationales to tell you that it's perfectly fine for government to crush liberties in order to answer 'exigent circumstances". This is not only incorrect, the activity of these so-called "journalists" is immoral and sick.
Here is the Liberty Conspiracy refutation of Slate.
A short production, concentrating on just this topic, with music by Oggy and the Stooges "Down on the Street", Killing Joke "Millennium", Love Spit Love "Little Fist" and The Damned "I Just Can't Be Happy Today"!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 4-29-13 Boston Bombings, State Provision of 'Security', and Stockholm Syndrome with Guest Tyrin Price
April 29, 2013 05:22 PM PDT
Welcome back to the Conspiracy plotting for freedom. We're a group of people who explore contemporary issues, historical events and ideas, and try to derive long-standing principles from them - principles that involve freedom, economics and creativity. We hope you like the approach.
In this program, we welcome fellow Conspirator Tyrin Price, who joined host El G Grande to offer his thoughts on the failure of the state to protect people in Boston, the rationales for the bombings that the attackers constructed in their angry minds, and the ease with which police state swept into the area and crushed the US Constitution.
Spread the word, and visit us at www.libertyconspiracy.com!
Music? Here's the list!
We open with Schtum "Big, Big City", then hear Soul Coughing "Super Bon-Bon", then offer Muse: "Plug-in Baby", then hear The Mummies' "You Must Fight to Live (on the Planet of the Apes)" and close things off with the New Bomb Turks "Gotta, Gotta Sinking Feeling"
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 4-16-13 The Boston Marathon Bombings: Liberty v Promises of Security
April 16, 2013 10:42 PM PDT
With an appreciation for the people in the city who died, suffered, who survived, we who cherish liberty look at the murderous attack on the attendees at the Boston Marathon.
Gardner Goldsmith is joined by Furb, founder of the Freedom Book Club. They look at something that has been mentioned at the Liberty Conspiracy website, which we will cut and paste here:
Homeland Security has not stopped one terrorist event. And after holding off on any political analysis, I started to think about the vulnerability one feels in a public place like Boston, an event like that... And the literal impossibility of true security that even the most dedicated police officers and politicians can try to provide. That area near the finish line is one of the most policed areas in any sporting/live/public event in the world. Yet this happened. It makes me consider the question framed thus: One might think about the percentage of cops per thousands on that street. At what level of officers/people does one think that there would have been a different outcome? I say that with no rancor towards anyone's beliefs, but just as a matter of reality. If killers wanted to kill, even a thousand more cops couldn't have stopped it. You can construct bicycles with pipe bombs in their frames and park them places. You can infiltrate the piping of the stands and tents and replace sections with pipes loaded with explosives. you can detonate bombs planted high up, loaded with metals to cause terrible damage. And all this brings me back to one insight, which is that there are (most often) reasons for terrorist acts. What are they? I won't sound "bleeding heart" when I say that, as a mathematical construct, if one cannot really stop terrorists who are hell bend on killing, then can one try to reduce the likelihood that people will be inspired to kill? Many killers don't have reasons inspired by things we can pinpoint as triggers, but many do. If this turns out to be a case of political terrorism, and we know it's impossible (or close to it) for the political machine to be big enough to stop this, then what does one do to try to reduce the likelihood of people wanting to kill for political reasons, such as disliking what the US does in the Middle East, etc?
Our music comes from bands that began in Boston, and includes: The Zulus "Directly from our Hearts to Yours", The Pixies "Debaser" (as we have noted, the Pixies used to open for the Zulus, and even they said the Zulus were the best band in the city), DMZ (the precursor to Lyres) "Bad Attitude", Big Dipper "Easter Eve", Mission of Burma "That's When I Reach for My Revolver", Morphine "Thursdays" (RIP Mark Sandman), Human Sexual Response (the forerunner to The Zulus) "Blow Up" (yes, music didacts, we adjusted the volume where it loses some VUs, and you know where that happens if you know Boston music!), The Zulus "Gotta Have Faith", and Eli Paperboy Reed (great New Soul singer originally from Brookline, MA) "Stake Your Claim".
Be Seeing You...Our Prediction Post Heller Decision Has Come True - Feds Use It As Excuse to Invade Rights
March 21, 2013 09:23 AM PDT
When the US Supreme Court issued its decision in the Heller case (Dick Heller was a DC resident who sued over the District's restrictions on the 2nd Amendment) many so-called "conservatives" and "small government libertarians" and "Constitutionalists" cheered.
We did not. In his conclusion to the majority opinion Antonin Scalia did something very bad to the English language and to the definition of the word "right".
Find out why our observation of this bad precedent, and our predictions about that error were prescient, and why it has a bearing on all future debates over all rights, not solely the right to self-defense.
Can you believe that a politically appointed judge actually implied that the right to self-defense can be attenuated?
Listen, and you'll see! We have that AND a visit from fellow Conspirator Malcolm, who offers his thoughts on Diane Feinstein, St. Patrick's Day, and more!
Plus music by Vintage Trouble, Leogun, and Grinderman! No songs listed in this case, because we'd like you to investigate the bands and buy some of their stuff!

Where?Liberty Conspiracy - 2-8-13 - Venting: On Drones, Assassinations, the Dead Constitution, Swearing at Judges, Gubment Cannot Operate without Attacking Rights
February 08, 2013 09:09 PM PST
The Liberty Conspiracy, a clenched punk fist smashing into the face of the state and the hypocrites who support it and work for its ceaseless attacks on individual sovereignty.
In this program (sponsored by Con-WOW!)we look at the shock the pop media have expressed about the current president's clearly unconstitutional, immoral and evil assassination program and his attacks on US and foreign civilians. No trial, no presentation of evidence. No presumption of innocence. Just death from above (not 1979 -- look up the band, good one).
This is an intense program. We can see how quickly the system is unraveling. On a recent "Ed" show (you know, the dummy we exposed for his complete lack of understanding about how speculation in products actually helps keep their prices lower during times of dearth) Ed's production team posted a poll. 78% of those who responded thought it was acceptable for the US government to assassinate Americans without trial.
We're in the minority. Things are unwinding rapidly. Get ready for bad mojo, kids.
This program also features a discussion of a recent viral vid that shows a teenage girl in court, and how a bored judge slammed her for saying WORDS. Think about it. Was she convicted of a crime? Did she or did she not retain her right to free speech? What does that tell us about the unworkability of a courtroom and the consistency of government to "protect" speech rights when it chooses to block them when its agents don't like the language you use?
With KICK ASS music by The Datsuns "Harmonic Generator", SHINING (Norway) "Fisheye", The Dead Boys "Sonic Reducer", The Prodigy "Baby's Got a Temper", The Prodigy "Spitfire", The Zulus "Directly from Our Hearts to Yours", Girls Against Boys "Rockets are Red", WIRE "Agfers of Kodack", and Tribe "Abort" - Buy them if you can and please remember, we rely on donations to keep our vast audio library out there to prove our points about freedom. Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 1-28-13 The State IS A RELIGION
January 28, 2013 04:19 PM PST
Welcome back to the Conspiracy, where we strive to spread the principles of individual liberty and peaceful interaction. In this special program, we give you a show with one unified theme: that the state is the biggest, most destructive religion in the history of the world. We look at the inauguration of the current President of the US and compare the rituals and beliefs backing the state (in all its forms) to the rituals and beliefs backing various religions. We also look at what happens to those who become apostates to the religion of the state.
Ritualism, the state, belief in its beneficence, and its power to destroy non-believers -- they are all covered here, with music by the Psychedelic Furs "Forever Now", The Golden Palominos "The Animal Speaks", Derek Lyn Plastic "Run with Me", The Sons of Hercules "Reason to Live" and "Snake People", The Future of the Left "The Hope that House Built", Midnight Oil "What Goes On", Asian Dub Foundation "Target Practice", The Ramones "Sheena Is a Punk Rocker" and The Horrors "Sheena Is a Parasite"!!!!!

January 21, 2013 05:33 PM PST
We gots a goooood show for youz in this one (but don't we always?)! This time, the Conspiracy takes on the politicians and their sycophants who claim that people are driven to violence by watching violent television and playing violent video games. Not only have there been no scientific studies to prove this, the incidence of violence in the US has DROPPED as video games that depict violence have become more popular!.
Gardner Goldsmith is joined in the studio by his niece, a very dangerous young lady named Brianna, and they look at one so-called social scientist and his claims that there IS a causal connection between video games and real violence. There is not, and by looking at the sad, subjectively determined criteria this man has used in his so-called study, we can see how manipulated science is by political goals and agendas. We stick with logic and real science, real facts, and we DEMOLISH this kind of silliness. Really think you'll enjoy this. Many thanks to Brianna for her help, and to those of you who download the program, or listen online or send a link to a friend. Muchas gracias!

We return like a giant reptilian monster to wreak vengeance on the statists who would attack our innocent neighbors! Welcome back to Liberty Conspiracy Audios! In this program, we offer you the third in our series of shows about the right to keep and bear arms, and those who set out to attack peaceful people and curtail that right. This time we get to look at the double-standard of pop media figures who strive for the elimination of the Second Amendment (and won't bother to try to amend the Constitution to do it), and we talk about how Wayne laPierre, of the NRA, and his sad but expected collapse on the right to keep and bear arms, and we'll note that there is something wrong with a judicial system that will release criminals into the public but still not trust them with firearms. The Second Amendment doesn't say that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, unless you're a felon who has done his time. If the state doesn't think you're safe enough to be in public with a firearm (and if you're inclined to do more crimes when you get out, you will likely get a firearm regardless of the law), then why is the state releasing you? You're clearly not safe to be in public anyway.

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy 1-13-13 On the Right to Keep and Bear Arms pt2, Back and Forth with Guest Jason Brock , Who Favors Restrictions on Arms
January 13, 2013 06:24 PM PST
Many thanks to our friend Jason Brock, who chatted with Gardner Goldsmith on his radio program and offered his ideas on some of the missing aspects of the Sandyhook coverage, and who offered some of his arguments as to why he believes there could be benefits to restrictions on the ownership of certain kinds of firearms. As Gard noted early on, we want to include many different perspectives and arguments on the issue of political invasion of this right, and why some people support it, and Jason was fantastic as a guest. Thank you, Jason.
As you will see, we try to be open to many views, and Gard wanted to make sure Jason had the opportunity to offer his ideas to the audience. You'll also see that Gard keeps his questions to a minimum, until the close of the segments.
Enjoy the show!

This audio collects cool analysis of current stories pertaining to liberty, including the tales mentioned above and another, about the TSA detaining a girl in a wheelchair. Insane.

We're pleased you've joined us to receive a portable production for liberty. In this special podcast, we give you our full interview with great libertarian thinker Sheldon Richman (www.sheldonrichman.com), who long ago began asking a fundamental question: Is it proper to use the term "capitalism" when one tries to defend free markets?
He offers us some fantastic insights and logic to support his answer, and we take the opportunity to allay the fears of some statists who believe that unfettering the market might lead to "exploitation" of workers and consumers...
Great stuff from Sheldon! We're in his debt!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 12-3-12 2013 NDAA Bill Still Gives Prez Power to Indefinitely Detain, UK Doctor Accuses Govt Medical System of Paying Hospitals to Euthanize, Exploitation Theory Demolished, pt1
December 03, 2012 04:41 PM PST
Welcome back sojourners in the world of ideas. We here at the Conspiracy are interested in presenting the concepts of freedom in ways that attract folks who might be inquisitive about individual liberty, or even worried about not having any government. In this program, Gardner Goldsmith explores two major breaking stories that have a bearing on liberty. First, he gives the latest information about the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, which is being falsely touted as a fix for the 2012 NDAA that gave the President the power to indefinitely detain people without their constitutionally required habeas corpus hearings. The 2013 version DOES NOT CHANGE the situation. Also, GG explores news that a UK doctor is claiming that the NHS (the National Health System -- AKA socialized government-run health system) is paying hospitals to euthanize elderly patients and babies who have birth defects or bad illnesses. Scary stuff, especially since statists in the US talk about this kind of thing (they call it "managing OUR health care dollars") a lot. That in this compact show (so we can get it out to satisfy the demands of a couple listeners who want it ASAP), and music by GG Allin and The Jabbers "Ass Face", The Horrors "Do You Remember?", Morphine "Super Sex" and "Thursday", Goldfrapp "Eat Yourself", and The Horrors "Who Can Say"...

October 28, 2012 04:26 PM PDT
A startlingly good production for you here, all. It's our analysis of claims made by people who want the government to force people to give "equal pay" to men and women at the workplace. We look at the claims and at the ethics of getting the government involved in the so-called solution, and we also look at whether the accusations of unequal pay are actually correct, and upon what they are based...
Listen... The meme is rising.
Including some choice, delicious music by Midnight Oil "What Goes On", Shriekback "Glory Bumps", Gary Milhouse "At Peace" (see him play in Bath, England!), The Grassy Knoll "Unbelievable Truth" (observe how they use the first note of Hendrix's version of "Purple Haze"!), Sonic Youth "Bull in The Heather", The Catherine Wheel "Black Metallic", DMZ "Watch for Me Girl"!, Wild Cherry "Play That Funky Music", Girls Against Boys "In Like Flynn" (as in Erroll Flynn, baby...)

We also hope you enjoy our conversation with Mike Martelli, whose podcast, First Degree Liberty, is available on Podomatic! Hope you grab it!
In this program, we debunk the government's claim that the attacks on the US embassies in Egypt and Libya were "spontaneous protests over a rotten video." Nope. Now, as we publish this three days after the audio was recorded from its radio broadcast, the pop media is FINALLY reporting the facts we were reporting on the 16th of September, or at least part of what we've been saying. They still will not admit that US policy in the Middle East is causing blowback. We also explore the insanity of Bennie Bernanke and the Fed buying 40 Billion Bucks of Mortgage-backed Securities each month for the foreseeable future. UGH! Hope you got some precious metals! Mike Martelli joins El G Grande to talk about these and the NYC soda ban, all RIGHT HERE!

In this heaaah great show, we offer you some precise analysis of something truly reprehensible Bill Clinton said in his speech at the Democrat National Convention. We think that upon hearing it, you, too will see what a tricky weasel he is, and how disrespectful he has been to people who gave their lives for liberty.
We're joined by Malcolm as well, and get to talk about the "Pizza Man" who picked up Barack Obama. Not that such an act merits any comment. What we're interested in is what happened to the man's business after the event, and hoe he doesn't seem to comprehend that people might not want to be FORCED to buy things or sell things based on the arbitrary whim of politicians or the people like him who support those politicians.
That and cool music, mostly instrumentals in this one... We incluse music from the Modern Lovers "Roadrunner", The Prodigy, "Climbatize", Concussion Ensemble "Bulldozer", Paul Weller, Blue Man Group, Danko Jones, and end it all with Kate Nash 'Foundations'...

In this production, we look at a piece recently written by actor John Cusack. Mr. Cusack is well known as a leftist Democrat. But in this recent piece, he explains to readers that he can no longer trade the destruction of civil liberties and the murders of innocent people for what he thinks are beneficial social programs in the US.

August 04, 2012 10:41 PM PDT
We reconvene at the Liberty Conspiracy! Thanks for listening and for spreading the word. In this program, we discuss the recent move by the US House and Senate to impose "sanctions" on Iran. These "sanctions" are actually an embargo, which is an act of War. But, of course, there are few who still know this. One of them is Ron Paul...
Gardner Goldsmith is another, and he takes the time to look at what Dr. Paul has said about the "sanctions" and to look at how that term is used far too loosely when the "embargo" is correct. He also looks at how other embargoes led to the exchange of fire, specifically, the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.
Good stuff with music by Human Sexual Response "Blow Up", "Land of the Glass Pinecones" The Zulus "Directly from Our Hearts to Yours", The Psychedelic Furs "Blacks/Radio" (not originally released on the first US disc because the record co believed it to be too controversial in the south), Girls Against Boys "Rockets Are Red", The New Bomb Turks "Dented and Spent" and "Grandpa Atomic" (listen to those drums!!!! And listen for this quote: "If we're gonna be the police of the world, I want my donuts freeeeee, yeah!", Danko Jones "I Can't Handle Moderation" and "Samuel Sin"!!! YEAH!

August 01, 2012 12:14 PM PDT
In this production, we offer you an analysis of US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's recent statement that the right to keep and bear arms can be "regulated". Seems odd, doesn't it, to have something defined as a "right" and yet have a political appointee say such "rights" can be "regulated"? Well we've been talking about this for a long time, and knew this kind of talk would pop up. Why? Because in the 2008 "Heller" decision, a decision many so-called conservatives applauded, Scalia said the same kind of thing. We delve into it and say "we told ya so", and get the able assistance of fellow Conspirator Kurt Hildebrandt! He's a smart guy, and shows us in the exchange he and El G have about this and more.
That and music from Love and Rockets "Kundalini Express", Einsterzende Neubaten "Let's Do It A Da Da", The Psychedelic Furs "DUMBWAITERS", WIRE "Hard Currency", Marina and the Diamonds (a new band from the UK!)

This is part one of two episodes in which we explore the strange thinking, the unconstitutional positions and the anti-freedom characteristics of the recent US Supreme Court ruling on the medical fascism law. We use the term fascism with precision, because it is the appropriate term. This portion of our program covers the bizarre manner in which the Supreme Court majority found that the fine was not a fine, even though the court itself said it was a fine at the opening of the opinion. The decision has massive implications for those of us who believe in freedom, and we have much to discuss here and in part two.
Enjoy the show! We're obnoxious in it, too! What a deal! Listen for music by The Smiths "How Soon Is Now", The Horrors "She Is The New Thing", THE DAMNED "Sick of Being Sick", The Horrors "Count in Fives", Lenny Kravitz "Always on the Run", Edwyn Collins "A Girl Like You", The Lonely Island "I'm On a Boat", The Demons (also known as "Demons") "Dizzy", Broadcast "Come On, Let's Go!", The Psychedelic Furs "President Gas", and Fugazi "Waiting Room"!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - Privacy and Markets v Gubment, Selling Body Parts, Rare Good Reporters
May 30, 2012 02:33 PM PDT
Welcome back to the Liberty Conspiracy. In this production, we offer you news on the problems Google is having in the EU, first, with its possible invasion of privacy, and then with the EU attacking it under so-called "antitrust" violations. Antitrust laws are weapons that gubments use to attack large companies, ostensibly to stop "unfair trade" of monopolies. But, as we explain, they tend to be used by politicians to extort businesses that have grown large through serving consumers, and who have not been raising their prices beyond what the market will allow. We explain why free market companies, even if they are big, will not "gouge" the consumer, and why the only companies that can do so are the companies given a legal monopoly by gubment.
We also discuss what might at first seem like a grisly topic: the selling of body parts, and relate that to freedom and the ownership of oneself.
Then, we get to slam around the actions and thoughts of the statist politician named Elizabeth Warren, who can't seem to back up her own claims about her background, but would like to tell your neighbors how to lead their lives and run their businesses.
With music by Arctic Monkeys "Don't Sit Down Because I've Moved Your Chair", The Psychedelic furs "Forever Now", The Grassy Knoll "Conversations with Julian Dexter", Fitz and the Tantrums "Moneygrabber", Danko Jones "Suicide Woman" and "Love Is Unind", Johnny Cash "Man in Black", Massive Attack "Man Next Door" and "Pray for Rain", and The Horrors "Gloves". Hope you buy their stuff!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy 5-16-12 The Right to Self Defense and Arms, Philosophy and Practice
May 16, 2012 08:39 AM PDT
Welcome back! We're glad you're part of the conspiracy! In this program, we explore the right to self-ownership and its associated principle, the right to self-defense. We start with a contemporary story about a man who saved many lives by wielding a firearm against assailants, and then delve into the earliest philosophical acknowledgement of the right to self-ownership and self defense. From there, we look at the history of guns in the US, Australia and the UK, and then look at the practical outcomes of allowing more firearms in certain areas. We also look at the mythology that cops are your best protection, and debunk it with PLEASURE!
Enjoy the chat, and pass the word! Also, enjoy the music, featuring a great many cuts by WIRE, including, "On Returning", "Reuters", "The Agfers of Kodak", "I Am the Fly", "Raft Ants", "Want to Ex You" (a new version of "1,2 XU"), "All Fours", "Drill" (live, with Einsturzende Neubaten doing "Vox Populi" - Live in Berlin, 2011), The Prodigy "Piranha", and Inland Sea "Words are Circles"! Look 'em up! Big thanks to Conspirator Tim Humphries for turning us on to Inland Sea. We hope you'll buy some of their music! Look for their music! -- Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 5-2-12 Fed Lies About GM and Waterboarding, Studying Ron Paul v. Paul Krugman
May 02, 2012 09:23 AM PDT
Welcome back to the gang of plotters we call the Liberty Conspiracy! In this program, we offer a podcast version of our May 1, 2012 radio show, on which Gardner Goldsmith covered breaking stories such as the revelation (which we already knew) that Nancy Pelosi lied when she claimed she was not made aware of CIA torture (oh, sorry, "enhanced interrogation in the form of waterboarding, but remember, it's not 'torture' any more, not the way it was in WWII), and we look at the lies of the current President that GM has paid back all of its TARp bailout cash -- Not true by any stretch of the imagination!
Then, we take a good look at a mini debate between Ron Paul and Paul Krugman, going more in-depth and seeing who truly believes in freedom and prosperity. This is a valuable segment unto itself, and we hope you'll recommend it to others!
That and music from Paul Weller ("Green" and "Around the Lake"), Plan B "Welcome to Hell", Telly Saalas "Who Loves Ya Baby?" (REALLY!), Hall and oates "Rich Girl", Government Issue "Jaded Eyes", WIRE "Comet" and "Hard Currency", Silver SUn Pickups "Panic Switch", and Paul Weller again with "No Tears to Cry" (off "Wake Up the Nation")!!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy 4-29-12 Jury Nullification Wins in Court, Arizona and the US Gubment Wrong on Immigration, A Personal Story of Jury Nullification
April 29, 2012 09:53 AM PDT
Opening with Kasabian's "Days Are Forgotten", we delve into the forgotten principle of JURY NULLIFICATION, which stems from the ancient Common Law, and which is not mentioned by most judges in contemporary courts. It's an important power that the people have to negate bad laws! Check out the news story and our analysis. Then, listen as El G Grande explains why both Arizona and the gubment cats in DC are wrong in their immigration arguments in the Supreme Court! We go into some valuable information for liberty lovers, and stress the economic benefits of unlimited immigration!
With music by Kasabian, The Fatima Mansions, Girls Against Boys ("Rockets Are Red" and "In Like flynn"), The Sex Pistols ("Bodies" and "Holidays in the Sun" - LIVE!), Steely Dan ("Black Friday"), Morphine ("Super Sex"), Massive Attack ("Man Next Door"), Iggy and the Stooges ("I Wanna Be your Dog") blending into The Cult's homage, ("Phoenix")! Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 4-25-12 CISPA, the 4th Amendment and School Searches
April 25, 2012 09:02 AM PDT
Welcome back to the Conspiracy! In this program, we discuss and explore in greater depth a number of issues that are important to liberty lovers. First, Gardner Goldsmith offers information about how police in California invaded a gubment school, took DNA samples of kids without their parents' consent of knowledge, and questioned the kids without informing the parents until after the fact. It brings to mind a nagging question when it comes to the state: do kids have rights?
Then, El G rips apart a bill that will be voted on shortly after this audio is posted. It is called CISPA, and will let the federal gubment circumvent the 4th Amendment when it comes to collecting your private online data. it's a shocking and angering move that will likely pass the House. Contact the federal politicians in your area and tell them to oppose it!
This production has no intro, because we want to get it to you as soon as we can, and El G is doing things that make it impossible for him to record at this time. (Yes, he is "indisposed"!)
Music? Opener is "Maps" by the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs. Then: Sould Coughing "Super Bon-Bon", Fu Mancu "Cyclone Launch", The Swell Maps "Let's Build a Car", Buzzcocks "What Do I Get?", The Psychedelic furs "Into You Like a Train", The Sons of Hercules "Gimme Some", The Dirtbombs "Don't Break My Hear", and The Prodigy (live) "Their Law" Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 4-5-12 Co-Host Stephen Smith on Illegal Consensual Transactions, Santorum, The Court
April 05, 2012 02:44 PM PDT
Welcome back! This is an audio we hope you'll spread to friends. It features our co-host, and fellow Conspirator, Stephen Smith (find his excellent work at http://abeginnersguidetofreedom.blogspot.com) investigating a story from Minnnesota about a $12,000 tip left for a waitress. The story is mysterious, and when the police step in to take the money, it gets political and takes on even greater import. Gard and Stephen open up the subject and begin to look at how it reflects on those who believe, as Ricky Santorum does, that people just can't "be left alone" to lead their lives in peace. This is a very good audio, and it can do a lot to help newcomers to the freedom philosophy to understand one of its key components: market transactions are made by people because they both feel they benefit from the transactions.
Our featured music? Ahh, yes! We open with The Horrors, "Do You Remember", then hit "Gloves" and "Sheena Is a Parasite" by them. Next is, "President Gas", by the Psychedelic Furs, then we offer "Cleopatra 94" by The Concusssion Ensemble, and "Little Fist" by Love Spit Love. Then we hear The Swell Maps, with "Let's Build a Car" and conclude with the epic "Forever Now" by the Furs. Hope you buy their stuff! Enjoy!

Welcome back to the home of portable productions for liberty, the Liberty Conspiracy!
In this program,we welcome co-pilot Brianna, who offers a great overview of the history and key components of anarchism. She's a young person, and has already done great research into anarcho-capitalism. In this show, Bri offers a lot of that information and her opinions on gubment getting involved with schooling and with marriage! Great stuff!

Thanks for being a conspirator for freedom. We will plot and plan for a world which acknowledges the primacy of the individual and the moral core of free market interaction. In this program, Gardner Goldsmith becomes one of the FEW media folks who talks about the Executive Order issued by Prez Obama on 3-16 that claims the power to nationalize any product, foodstuff, machine, building, form of energy and person. We're serious, and so is the federal gubment. That, and music from The Cynics and The Sons of Hercules!!!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 3-16-13 - On Clothes and Speech Rights in Gubment Schools, HR 347 and Arresting Protesters, and a Novelist's Prescient Warning
March 16, 2012 10:17 AM PDT
Greetings! Thanks for choosing to be part of the Conspiracy! In this production of Liberty Conspiracy audios, Gardner Goldsmith explores a story from Lynn, MA, that highlights the conflict between government supposedly protecting one's rights, and government providing "services" to people. That's tied into another current issue, one which is a biggie called HR 347. Just signed into law, it will allow police to arrest anyone protesting or asking difficult questions of a politician who has asked for Secret Service protection. Patently contrary to the first amendment of the US Constitution, this law will now be used to crush dissent by everyone from Tea Partiers to Occupiers, moving the US one step closer to a police state where some very, very bad things can be done to the citizens.
We hope you find the program worthwhile! Included in this show is music by Iggy Pop, Black Flag, Queens of the Stone Age, Maps, Shriekback, The Dirtbombs, Puffy Ami Umi, WIRE, and Guitar Wolf!!!

February 27, 2012 03:26 PM PST
Thanks for being part of the Conspiracy!
In this program, we explore the bizarre phenomenon of politicians who want to use force and theft, but who feel compelled to appear at churches and other locations important to the religious in their quest for office. We then compare that strange M.O. to the recent trouble the Catholic Church has had with being forced by the gubment to offer so-called "contraceptive coverage" to their employees through their insurance programs. It's a fascinating and controversial show. Check it out!
And in it, we include music by Jack Black (via some fine remixers) looking for an OCTOGON, by the Psychedelic Furs, from their first album,, by Shriekback, from "Glory Bumps", by Iggy and the Stooges, and some fine remixing of Scatman John, leading into a little something special, for all you who would prefer to vote for Zaphod Beeblebrox!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy 2-20-12 - GM Profit Claims Are Bogus, Internment of Japanese, Dead-end jobs
February 20, 2012 12:34 PM PST
Welcome, fellow-conspirator. We're glad there are others in this minority of people who believe in freedom.
In this portable production of libertarian ideas, we study a few contemporary issues, and derive long-lasting points. In hour one, Gardner Goldsmith looks at the pop media's attempt to convince people that government "bailouts" (ie redistribution of wealth to failing companies that consumers had chosen NOT to frequent) are somehow good "investments" and help the economy. Gard shows you what the pop media DIDN'T tell you, and shows how GM isn't a company that's succeeded on its own merit.
Then, Gard looks into the 70th anniversary of the US government's internment of Japanese Americans. He studies it and looks at other areas where people are interned, and how people don't notice... That, and a critique of a military guy telling a convenience store worker the kid should join the Army and "get outta this dead-end job".
We don't pull punches, and we feature music by Midnight Oil, The Saints, Blue Man Group, Danko Jones, "Demons", and The Psychedelic Furs!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 2-1-12 The FDA Claims "Regulatory" Power over Your Cells, the Market for Body Parts, Private Property Rights
February 01, 2012 10:37 AM PST
Thanks for joining the Conspiracy! We're glad to have you as part of the gang. You can chat with us in our forum at LibertyConspiracy.com any time!
In this program, Gardner Goldsmith reconstructs (with better music fidelity than available on radio), his Liberty Conspiracy radio program from 1-31-12. In the show, he discussed the revelation that the FDA claims "regulatory" power over the sale of human cells. Shocking? Well, maybe not. It already prohibits the sale of human body parts... This is not only unconstitutional, it's immoral and runs contrary to the principle of self-ownership. Listen as we explore it... Then, check out our conversation about the term "regulate", and how it's not appropriate when it is used to describe government coercion of private industry and individual actions. And then you can hear some thoughts about the term "property", and how people arrived at the concept of "private property."

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 11-8-11 Chuck Testa and Jesse Ventura vs. The TSA and US Courts
November 08, 2011 05:09 PM PST
Welcome to the Conspiracy. We hope you don't mind being part of a small cadre of people who believe in freedom, and we hope you don't mind working to convince others to join our fight.
In this production, we concentrate on the recent press conference by Jesse Ventura, who had brought suit against the US government for the TSA's breaches of the Fourth (and 5th and 1st and 9th and 10th) Amendment(s). Ventura brought suit in federal district court, because he wanted his complaint heard by a jury. But the feds won't allow that.
Strange, that, isn't it?
Ventura's speech is powerful, and we present it to you here in its entirety. Mr. Ventura has said he is going to turn his back on the US flag and national anthem. It would be nice if others would follow his lead, and learn that standing for any government flag or anthem is antithetical to individual sovereignty. Visit us at www.libertyconspiracy.com!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy 11-3-11 How A Politician Coerced a Bank to Charge Customers Debit Fees, Then Blamed the Bank
November 03, 2011 10:53 PM PDT
It's a story you might not have seen in the pop media. Instead, you might have seen Illinois Senator Dick Durbin railing against Bank of America (we don't like BoA, but that's because, since 2008, the bank got $97 billion in tax money via the federal gubment) as he stood on the Senate floor and excoriated them for charging $5.00 per month for the use of their debit cards. What you didn't see was the REASON BoA instituted that fee.
The reason? A regulation introduced by, yeah, you got it, DICK DURBIN, in late 2009, early 2010. El G Grande will tell you the story, and then derive a long-standing lesson about freedom to carry with ya after the show is over!

Welcome back to the Conspiracy! In this production, we look at the argument offered by politicians Elizabeth Warren in which she lauds the benefits of redistribution of wealth and the so-called "Social Contract". We present this argument in full, and then offer a refutation of her claims that you live thanks to the benefits government gives you, and to which you have already agreed just by existing.
It's a fascinating exploration of rhetoric, logic, morality, history and freedom.

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 10-13-11 News! US Politicians Decry Assassination Plot - After US Assassinates US Citizen, Dale Farm, UK, Update
October 13, 2011 10:22 AM PDT
Anyone notice that politicians seem to be more and more confident that they can get away with double-speak and hypocrisy? Just two weeks ago, the US government killed a US citizen they accused of "terrorism", killed without trial or a presentation of the evidence against him. Then, a fortnight later, the US government proudly announces that its agents have busted a plot to ASSASSINATE an Arab ambassador. While the Arab ambassador is not seen as a criminal in the eyes of the US politicians, the Iranians claim that Saudi Arabia has been guilty of assisting the US government in its campaign of killings of innocent Muslims in the Middle East. So on the one hand, the US claims it is illegal and bad to try to assassinate a person who has not been proven to have done anything bad, and on the other, the US officials claim that it is a noble thing to kill a person who has not been proven to have done anything bad -- but in the latter case, it is the US government that's doing the killing, so it is alright, we're told.
We cover it, and ask why people put their faith in this corrupt institution called the state. We also talk about the UK government destroying property rights of the Irish Travellers at Dale Farm. This is an update we didn't want to provide, but must.
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 9-8-11 News: Big Sis vs. Your Rights
September 08, 2011 05:54 PM PDT
Unconstitutional Homeland Security "Tsar" Janet Napolitano recently took offense to being called "Big Sis", saying charges that have been leveled against her as an invader of privacy and a breaker of the 4th Amendment are spurious. (Actually, she wasn't so specific as to bother with talking about the 4th Amendment.) We offer her side of the argument, and then offer the facts, which make her arguments look even sillier than they already sound.
This production offers a great deal of evidence showing the illegality of the TSA and Homeland Security Admin, as well as free market alternatives that allow people to CHOOSE and be FREE to get the security and privacy levels they desire -- all while actually being more vigilant against violence.
Great stuff! With music by Fitz and The Tantrums, Public Image Limited, and The Damned!

September 05, 2011 02:15 PM PDT
Check it out! With music from Danko Jones and electric Frankenstein, the Conspiracy continues to cover the news that sheds light on long-standing issues of individual liberty. Case in point, the federal gubment recently attacked Gibson Guitars in TN, stealing wood and records, and shutting them down, making it difficult to keep producing the guitars that consumers want in order to stay in business. We look at the constitutional side of the argument, the moral side, and the economic aspects, which lead us to explain what "natural resources" really are, and why free markets must be allowed to function in order to utilize nature and man's inventiveness, and husband those things that man values.

Spread the word! Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy 8-24-11 The Ron Paul/Concord Monitor Interview, with Conspiracy Observations
August 24, 2011 11:36 AM PDT
If you're just discovering us, you might be inquisitive about what drives the Liberty Conspiracy. We adhere to the principle that the initiation of aggressive force is immoral and leads to a degradation of living standards. We believe that the individual not only has the inherent control over himself and his labor, but can freely engage in exchanges with others sans interference from arbitrary political rules. We note that within the unfortunate existence of the state there have been a few people who have espoused many of our principles, and applied them to contemporary issues and historical events. One of those men is Congressman Ron Paul. Congressman Paul recently sat down to an interview with editors and reporters of the NH Concord Monitor, a hardcore statist/leftist paper.
What is remarkable about the interview is that, because the interviewers are so ignorant of economics, history and the US Constitution, their attempts to attack Dr. Paul end up inspiring him to answer in incredible detail, with no malice, and offering the listener (or viewer, this is derives from a Youtube video you can find and link for friends, please do!) a powerful overview of libertarian principles in practice. It is one of the best interviews of a libertarian released this year. Please check it out!
We add our own comments about two issues, and we'd like to mention that you might notice that Ron Paul mentions a "conspiracy for liberty" towards the end of the interview! YES, thers IS a Conspiracy! You're part of it! Thanks!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 8-22-11 Krugman Loves Aliens pt 2: The Religion of Monetary Stimulus
August 22, 2011 06:30 PM PDT
In part one of this two-part series, we made the world a better place by revealing the fallacies inherent in "economist" Paul Krugman's belief that an alien invasion, like he believes WWII did, could pull the US economy out of a 'down-time'. We explained that wars don't better people's standards of living, and they redirect usable capital, human and other natural resources into areas that aren't helpful to people's lives (please refer to that audio for the specific reasons as to why it is impossible to calculate value under a government paradigm, and therefore impossible to calculate whether ANY gubment spending is valuable -- no one is allowed to show his preference freely to determine whether he valued it or not, because his money is taken by politicians -- even to fight WWII.)
In this show, we go further, into the second part of Krugman's argument, wherein he might argue that we don't understand. He is not just advocating a redirection of money from taxpayers to busy work, building things to combat aliens, he is talking about a FISCAL STIMULUS, wherein the Fed or the Treasury creates money that pumps up demand! "Ahh," he might say. "I have you now, Skywalker! No one has to lose out on one thing in favor of what politicians want made, because there will be enough money to buy the other thing in the first place!" See, he wants the gubment or the Federal Reserve (given by Congress the monopoly on printing unconstitutional money) to pump the economy with Dollars, and he believes this will let people be employed with no disastrous consequences.
We explain, and show how the Federal Reserve is falsely claiming it made profits off of its bailouts. A great show!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 8-17-11 Pop Media Ignores Ron Paul PLUS Paul Krugman, Space Aliens and Broken Windows
August 17, 2011 10:34 PM PDT
Welcome, ye fighter for freedom! We hope you like this news update, in which the Liberty Conspiracy looks at the obvious and seemingly intentional disregard for libertarian Ron Paul's strong showing in Iowa and his strong backing elsewhere. Gard studies it, in conjunction to notations on our website at libertyconspiracy.com -- ALSO! Take a listen to one of the stories that has gone overlooked by the poppies! It's all about pseudo-economist Paul Krugman and his desire for an attack or threat of an attack by space aliens as a way to 'stimulate the economy'. Gardner Goldsmith looks at his statement in two parts and serves up a devastating rebuttal to Krugman's fallacious thinking that gubment spending (even on things like warfare) somehow creates prosperity. Just to give you a hint, Gard teams up with 19th century economist Frederic Bastiat!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 7-21-11 NEWS UPDATE! Gubment Default Rhetoric, TSA n' "Privacy", Feds Rarely Fire
July 21, 2011 04:15 PM PDT
As we join you once more, to the great, swingin' strains of LOUIS JORDAN, we take the opportunity to discuss some INSANE, yet very TRUE stories of gubment officials and statists in the media who love them. In this case, we look at the fear-mongering and scapegoating of a potential "federal gubment shutdown" to blame it for a "double-digit recession". Since we know the recession has not stopped, and we know that the price increases now arriving due to the inflation of the money supply caused by the fed and US treasury are going to slam people even MORE, we know that the rhetoric is BOGUS. Listen and we'll explain in more detail. Then, check out our analysis of new claims by the TSA that their scanners will offer "privacy" -- and we compare those claims to claims made in NOVEMBER of 2010 that the scanners ALREADY OFFERED privacy!
Ahh, so much to make sure we monitor! And there's more! Thanks to Reason Magazine, we have the skinny on how FEW people are ever fired by the fed gubment! Check it out, Strongbad!

Welcome to the alternative to stale thinking. Here at the Conspiracy, we endeavor to explore political-economics with intellectual rigor. We would like to present to you the thoughts of a man who does the same. He's Thomas E Woods, the author of numerous books on economic history and a speaker who finds ways to entertain and enlighten as he fights the oppressive nature of the state.
In this program, El G Grande presents part of Tom's ongoing answers to what some statists seem to think are tough questions they try to pose to those who support the free market. Gard adds his own comments, and together, the two provide an excellent bulwark against the encroaching tide of statism that politicians, gubment school teachers, pop media figures and professors seem to push at us every day!
Great stuff! Visit us at Liberty Conspiracy dot Com!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 7-11-11 Video Games, Advertising, Free Will, Liberty and Violence - A New Look at Supreme Court Decision, Plus Mothyspace on Social Contract Theory, PLUS Gubment Fear-mongering
July 12, 2011 08:00 AM PDT
Thank you for choosing the Liberty Conspiracy Audios for your entertainment, education, debate, and all-around fun. We strive to look at contemporary issues and squeeze long-standing principles from them. We hope to explore the ideas of free markets and individual sovereignty so that you have a bit more material to use should you take up the fight for them.
In this program, El G Grande explores another perspective on the recent US Supreme Court decision in the Brown v Entertainment Merchants Association case. Here, he offers the thoughts of famous libertarian Wendy McElroy, and adds another dimension to it. Gard exposes the nonsense and illogic of claiming that video games can be "violent" and that they "inspire" people to become violent.
Then Gard shares a CABAL member's views on the so-called "Social Contract", and offers thoughts on gubment fear-mongering. Good stuff for the mind!

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 7-7-11 The US Supreme Court, Video Games, Speech, and Arrogant, Statist Conservatives
July 07, 2011 09:47 PM PDT
HEY! Want to hear what a fascist along the lines of Julius Caesar sounds like? Just listen to one of the soundbites Gard offers of a "traditional conservative" as she poetically defends statism and the application of her tastes on everyone else!
Amazing stuff! Enjoy it and our explanation of how the first amendment is SUPPOSED to work, and how judges don't bother caring.
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 7-4-11 Beyond the Typical: Further Dissection of Social Contract Theory, Featuring Stephen Smith
July 04, 2011 03:28 PM PDT
As many Conspirators know, we recently have engaged in a series of programs devoted to exposing the so-called "Social Contract Theory" for what it is: an excuse for majority-sanctioned theft and coercion.
Here, we welcome frequent contributor and CABAL member, Stephen Smith, he of the excellent website "A Beginner's Guide to Freedom".
In this production, Gardner Goldsmith and Stephen discuss a few of the contemporary figures espousing warmed-over "Social Contract Theory", and how all of the arguments in favor of it actually run counter to REAL contracts and real choice!
Great stuff from Stephen. We love getting his insight!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 7-1-11 Social Contract Theory, Obliterated, Pt 2!
July 01, 2011 08:41 PM PDT
Enjoy this punk rock refutation to the evil concept that you somehow subsume your individualism and self-ownership to the s-called "will of the people" as expressed by government/state law!!
In this, the second (and better than the first, too!!) installment of the series on this issue, we go further than eviscerating Rousseau's silly notions, we show how so-called "social contract theory" is smeared all over other political work, including the supposedly laudable work of John Locke, upon whose ideas much of the US Constitution was based!
Great material for a deep understanding of why the US government contained in it the seeds of expansion and greater an greater amounts of socialism.

Greetings, and welcome back to the Conspiracy! In this special program, we give you a short update of what's been happening in the Conspiracy Production Office, and then tell you how those events have inspired a study of one of the most noxious and destructive political theories in the history of man: Social Contract Theory.
Gardner Goldsmith recounts an encounter with one of its true adherents, and asks you to offer your ideas through e-mail or at our website. Tell El G Grande how YOU would refute the believer in this evil socialist religion.

Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 6-14-11 Why We Shouldn't Fear So-Called Trade "Deficits"
June 14, 2011 07:55 PM PDT
Join us and spread the word that there's a podcast out here where the people behind it actually TALK about ECONOMICS. While you're at it, you might want to mention that to the POP MEDIA who seem more interested in scare-mongering and ignorance.
In this program, Gardner Goldsmith selects a tiny, super-brief quote from one of the debaters at the recent 2011 GOP presidential debate to highlight a fundamental lesson most politicians haven't learned about economics. It's all about the so-called "trade deficit", and why that term is erroneous and misleading. Gard explains that the popular myth of the "trade deficit" is just that, a myth, and it is not bad to be buying more of the products made in a foreign nation. Listen and you'll see what we mean!
Be Seeing you!Liberty Conspiracy - 6-10-11 George Orwell's 1984 and 21st Century US
June 10, 2011 02:05 PM PDT
Greetings! In this special audio, we take a look at some of the key facets of George Orwell's monumental novel, "1984", its history, how many of the opressive state activities Orwell describes are already happening, and how the pop media is complicit in a real-life version of "newspeak" and "double-think".
In most important respects, the Department of Truth exists. Just look at how statistics are manipulated and constantly revised for political gain. We talk about the implications, and how to resist.
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 6-8-11 Chinese Gubment Drops 97% of Its US Bonds, TSA, Welfare and Unconstitutional Conditions
June 08, 2011 10:36 PM PDT
What is one of the most important stories of the last ten years? It's the one that major pop media outlets seem to have not been interested in telling: the government of China has dumped 97% of its US bonds. Why? We explain in this audio. It's extremely important that this move set off alarm bells for anyone willing to listen to this message. Get ready.
Also, get ready for more and more "unconstitutional conditions" being placed on US citizens by the federal, state and local gubments. What do we mean? Listen to this audio as we make the connection between the TSA and Florida's welfare program... Important stuff.
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 6-1-11 "Quantitative Easing" Means INFLATION
June 01, 2011 12:02 PM PDT
There are new rumblings in the financial markets that the Fed is ready to engage in more "Quantitave Easing". That means your dollar will buy less. What's it all about? Gardner Goldsmith explains.
A brief lesson in private market money versus gubment manipulated money!
With music by the NEW BOMB TURKS and the UNKNOWNS!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 5-31-11 Ron Paul on Illegal US Military Actions
May 31, 2011 01:55 PM PDT
Please take an opportunity to listen to this brief production, in which we feature the words of Dr. Paul, as he explains how dangerous and wrong it is for the US government to be engaging in the military actions in which it is involved.
Gard offers comment.
Spread the word. Bad stuff happnin' now, kids.
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 5-23-11 Gubment Schools, Food, The Feds, and Jamie Oliver?
May 23, 2011 06:35 PM PDT
What do Facebook, Secret Service Agents, teenagers, school lunches, and Jamie Oliver have in common?
Gubment bureaucracy that threatens parental oversight and guidance for children, even as it takes parental money and time, and doesn't address parental concerns the way market systems do.
Listen on, MacDuff, and see what we mean! Good lessons to be learned here, with music by some GREAT bands!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy - 5-18-11 Warrants, "Sneak and Peek" Searches, Minority Hiring and Economics
May 18, 2011 12:14 PM PDT
Welcome back to the Conspiracy! We at the Liberty Conspiracy understand that many of the fundamental principles of freedom aren't popular today. Sometimes they're not even discussed. So we try to take contemporary issues and draw from them long-lasting principles of economics and liberty.
In this case, take a listen, wherever you are, to our coverage of the disturbing revelation that the federal gubment has increased its "Sneak and Peek" search warrants (which means they're not really search warrants, but carte blance for invasion of private property and possible confrontation with homeowners). Gard explains where the concept of Warrants arose (yeah, you got it, the British Common Law) and why these breaches are indicative of the false basis of all government: That which can exist only by taking a portion of your monetary property is already a predator. It is not your protector.
Then take a listen as we delve into a story of Starbuck's Coffee, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1992, and why it is not only unconstitutional, but also is an invasion of private property and does not allow free markets to provide opportunities for minorities.
Good stuff! Join us at www.libertyconspiracy.com!
Be Seeing You!Liberty Conspiracy 5-10-11 Another Voice Re: US Kill of bin Laden
May 10, 2011 12:59 AM PDT
You've head Gard talk about the unconstitutional non-wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the disregard for the Geneva Accords and for US Law as they apply to the so-called "enemy combatants" -- well how about another voice to add some new angles?
In this program we feature the thoughts of Judge Andrew Napolitano, who is one of the few in the "pop media" to say what is important. He's not bothering trying to figure out what caused Hillary Clinton to put her hand to her face during a famous photo of White House politicos. He's looking at real substance, as we like to do here. Take a listen, and see what you think as Gard offers a few thoughts and then introduces the words of the judge.
Thanks for being a Conspirator! Spread the word!
