[LPNM] Resolution Condemning Cuban Arrest of U.H. Hernandez and M.V. Visea

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 1:35 AM (01:35)

Given that the Libertarian Party of New Mexico exists to promote liberty together with the Libertarian Party of the United States and the Libertarian Parties of all the several states, and the International Libertarian movement;

And,

Given that the political climate in the United States and in other countries has become increasingly authoritarian;

Be it resolved that the Libertarian Party of New Mexico joins the Libertarian Party of Nevada and the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire by condemning the Communist government of Cuba for the political arrest and detention of Ubaldo Herrera Hernandez and Manuel Velasquez Visea that took place on February 2, 2017. These men were specifically targeted for their peaceful promotion of limited government and free markets. We call upon Libertarians and liberty-minded people in these United States and free people across the world to join us in condemning the immoral arrest and detention of individuals for exercising their natural and human rights. May tyrants be destroyed and liberty reign among all of the peoples throughout the world.

Resolved by the Central Committee of the Libertarian Party of New Mexico on Monday, February 20, 2017.

  1. Re: nmpolitics.net: Civility and the long view

    From the article :

    “The question is, why does it matter? Because both left and right need to learn to take the long view — the preservation of our country and our freedoms.”

    So what existing regulations and statutes are each “side” — the “left” and “right” — willing to fight to repeal or otherwise do away with?

  2. Re: nmpolitics.net: Internet sales tax receives bipartisan support

    From the article —

    “‘It’s really just closing a loophole,” said Rep. Monica Youngblood, R-Albuquerque.”

    So amongst the five Republicans on the House Business and Industry Committee (Alonzo Baldonado, Yvette Herrell, Tim D. Lewis, Jane E. Powdrell-Culbert, and Monica Youngblood), only Rep. Herrell has what it takes to stand up for taxpayers.

    Seriously, State and local governments don’t need more money, they need to get out of everyone’s way more and let people live their lives.

    I have been asked why I did not stick around after speaking against the Gunowner Persecution and Legislative Bureaucracy Enhancement Bill (HB 50) to speak for the Cannabis Tax Slavery and Legislative Bureaucracy and Revenue Act (HB 89). I thought I was pretty clear about why on Living Liberty two weeks ago. But here is exhibit A. Read that title and weep.

    AN ACT
    RELATING TO CANNABIS; ENACTING THE CANNABIS REVENUE AND FREEDOM
    ACT; ENACTING THE CANNABIS TAX ACT; PROVIDING DUTIES AND POWERS
    OF THE REGULATION AND LICENSING DEPARTMENT, THE TAXATION AND
    REVENUE DEPARTMENT, THE NEW MEXICO DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
    AND THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH; CREATING THE CANNABIS CONTROL

    We had a few back in 2012. After 2013, they went into hiding or something.

    So let me get this straight — the vaccinated kids are at risk from the unvaccinated kids? Isn’t that a bit backwards, in that the very point of vaccination is to make the person receiving the vaccine at less risk of contracting the disease in question?

  6. Re: nmpolitics.net – Felons skirting background checks by buying guns online, group says

    If “Everytown for Gun Safety” was truly about promoting firearms safety, they would offer training where people could learn how to handle, use, carry and store firearms in a safe manner.

    Instead, that sort of training is offered by the outfit that “Everytown for Gun Safety” complains about on a regular basis as The Scourge Of America — the National Rifle Association of America.

    While “Everytown for Gun Safety” could be offering firearms training, all they do instead is lobby governmental bodies in the name of restricting the inherent individual, civil, Constitutional right of Americans to own and carry weapons. The Constitution doesn’t give anyone that right — the right is a pre-existing one, accorded to everyone at birth as a matter of being born as a sapient (self-aware) entity.

    White, black, Latin, Asian, or Native, gay, straight or bi, cis or trans, male or female, Christian, Jew, Hindu, pagan or Muslim — the Second Amendment doesn’t discriminate.

    Here’s a list of the NRA-affiliated sites and pages that offer various forms of training:

    https://gunsafetyrules.nra.org/
    https://firearmtraining.nra.org/
    https://mqp.nra.org/
    http://nrainstructors.org/
    https://rso.nra.org/
    https://coach.nra.org/
    https://onlinetraining.nra.org/
    https://eddieeagle.nra.org/

    And that’s just what’s on the NRA site. There are thousands of NRA-accredited instructors across the nation.

    The question remains — what is “Everytown for Gun Safety” doing, besides running phone banks and doing media buys to further the cause of victim disarmament?

    I just checked their website and it seems that they’re not doing much of anything training-related, but they sure are doing a lot of phone-banking in New Mexico —

    We’ve had a few — Inauguration Day and the 21 Jan “Womens’ March” in the Downtown area of ABQ, and Santa Fe and Las Cruces. And the recent visit of Milo Yiannopoulos to the UNM main campus in ABQ (27 Jan) got a little hairy — at least 50 NM State Police in and around the event, including their EOD team, plus UNMPD, UNM Security and Securitas officers on scene. After the speech, they escorted Milo out of the ballroom through the back areas, while keeping the attendees in the ballroom for another 20-30 minutes. When they did let us out, we had to go through a cordon of LEOs (some reports say Bernalillo County SO was on scene, as well) in riot gear.

    As for the illegals, there are bills in the State Legislature to make New Mexico a “sanctuary state,” and the Democrat-controlled Legislature recently invited Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto to address the Roundhouse, but did not extend the same invitation to Trump.

    Here’s a brief recap of the 27 January Milo event at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque —

    I was there (right side of the center aisle, last row), heard the anti-Milo fascists thumping on the doors at the back of the ballroom before they brought Milo out, had to wait about 20-30 minutes after it was over before the NM State Police would let any of the attendees leave the ballroom, etc.

    I will say that it wasn’t one of his better speeches. Milo came out wearing cop-fetish gear (a black tactical-type vest with “POLICE” in white lettering on it).

    There must have been about 50 NMSP officers, including EOD (“bomb squad”) in and around the ballroom, along with UNMPD, UNM Security and Securitas officers.

    As we were departing from the SUB, we had to go through a cordon of cops in riot gear to get to the nearby parking structure.

    UNM had the entire food court at the SUB shut down. I’m guessing that the decision for that one was made by UNM for “security concerns.” I didn’t have any chance to get dinner until 8:30 PM that night.

    I don’t have much contact with the local immigrants. The local “lib” “prog” types have been making public offers of “sanctuary” and talking about setting up some sort of “underground railroad” in local media and on Facebook. Which is operationally idiotic if the point of the exercise is to actually hide these people.

    As for the illegals themselves, most of them are here to work, not stir shit up. By and large, you can’t get your roof fixed in ABQ if not for them, for example. The current Lieutenant Governor (Republican John Sanchez) either owns or owned a roofing company (Rightway Roofing) and more than likely employed a few of them.

    As for the protests and riots, there probably was a good amount of locals in the ranks. I’m guessing that they used the ABQ Center for Peace and Justice as a rally point for these events — it’s close to both UNM and the Downtown area, and the location itself is a clearinghouse of sorts for the local “left” — just about every “lib” “prog” whackjob group leaves its brochures there, at the very least.
