Police Report: Augustus Invictus accused of domestic violence, sexual assault, kidnapping, terroristic threats

Augustus Invictus, the controversial candidate who lost the Florida US Senate LP nomination to Paul Stanton by a wide margin last year, got elected Chair of the Orange County, Florida (Orlando area) LP, campaigned at white nationalist events and earned condemnation from his state LP leadership for his advocacy of war and eugenics, has now been accused of a long standing pattern of domestic violence, sexual assault, kidnapping and terroristic threats by an ex-girlfriend who lived with him from November 2015 to January 2017.

The following report was forwarded to IPR writers by Warren Redlich. Shannon Patterson from the Edgewood, FL Police Department has confirmed that the report is genuine, adding that “this is an information report only.” The alleged crimes did not take place in the same city as the police report was made, and the complaintant was advised to file a report with the correct jurisdiction as well as to seek a court injunction against Augustus Invictus.

In other recent Invictus news, he was scheduled to appear at the Mid-Atlantic Liberty Festival to debate Will Coley on the issue of immigration. However, the event was cancelled, allegedly after repeated bomb threats by antifascists to every venue that agreed to host the event. Invictus spoke at his own event in Harrisburg, PA, on Saturday, the day of the cancelled event, as far as we know without incident. Prior to the cancellation of the festival, several members of the Libertarian Party Audacious Caucus and Vermin Supreme announced plans to throw a pie at Invictus as he appeared on stage. Invictus replied that anyone who threw a pie at him would wake up in the hospital and face battery charges.

    There are no words in my vocabulary to express how I feel about a man who physically abuses a woman. If we can verify this is true, I pledge to do everything in my power to make sure Augustus never gets anywhere with the LP.

    Didn’t he just have a new baby? Unless the woman in the report is the mother, he had a child with someone else while he was with the woman in the policy report?

    Scum of the earth!

    Well, I expect Andy’s apologia post haste.”

    Apologize for what?

    First of all, I don’t speak for Invictus, and I never even endorsed Invictus, and I have never even met or spoken to him.

    Second of all, is there any evidence that the charges are true? There are lots of instances of people being falsely accused of things.

    These are certainly serious charges, and it would be bad if they are true, but at this time we don’t even know whether or not the charges are true.

    He could still be bad in other ways (IF the charges are true, which I would not necessarily assume), but keep in mind that your boy Bill Weld supported mass murder in an unjust, unnecessary, and unconstitutional war in Iraq.

    AD beat me to it. . . . There’s Andy rationalizing and trying to justify . . .

    Are there false convictions? Sure. I was locked up with several guys who I am pretty sure were not guilty but they are VERY rare.

    You wanted to defend him for being a nutso fascist, so it’s not surprising you are not denouncing him now . . . yawn

  5. JT

    There’s no conviction, false or otherwise. There’s a police report, which was not even investigated because it was filed in the wrong jurisdiction, and advice that the woman should seek a restraining order. We don’t even know if she followed up on that, much less if a restraining order was issued or a police investigation conducted.

  6. Wang Tang-Fu

    Crazy fascist who routinely spouts crazy, violent, fascist rhetoric gets accused of acting in a crazy, violent way. It’s a stretch to believe, I know. I realize he deserves a legal presumption of innocence, but that doesn’t mean we have to presume he is innocent in an informal discussion. Based on his rhetoric on many occasions, his published rape fantasies, his behavior in dismembering and torturing a goat to death which got him kicked out of a pagan religion devoted to Aleister Crowley, and his close association with violent neo-nazi skinhead terrorists, I am going to tentatively presume he is guilty as charged. I know that would disqualify me from serving on a jury in this case, but I wouldn’t be called on to do so anyway.

    I am NOT defending or rationalizing anything. I am just making the observation that some accusations have been made, but no evidence has been presented to back them up, and Augustus has not even been charged with anything. He may or may not be guilty.

    “it was filed in the wrong jurisdiction”

    Not sure where you got that idea. Although the woman’s name and address are redacted, it looks like she filed an informational report with the Edgewood PD after leaving Invictus and moving back to Edgewood from Altamonte, because she felt allegedly felt threatened in Edgewood. She was then given a copy of the report, presumably to give to any judge considering a request from her for a protective order.

    I don’t have any opinion on whether the allegations in the report are true. If they are, that’s pretty damning/disgusting — but also unnecessary. Invictus already proves his unfitness to represent the Libertarian Party every time he opens his pie-hole.

    “it was filed in the wrong jurisdiction”

    Not sure where you got that idea

    From the report itself. See page 2 of the pdf in the article.

  10. Thomas L. Knapp

    None of the last four paragraphs say anything about the report being “filed in the wrong jurisdiction.” They just note that it is an informational report only since it does not allege a crime committed in Edgewood itself.

  11. paulie Post author

    They also say that she was advised to file a report with Altamonte. But yes, it does make sense that she also filed with Edgewood since that is where she is now.

  12. Just Some Random Guy

    Are there false convictions? Sure. I was locked up with several guys who I am pretty sure were not guilty but they are VERY rare.

    But we’re not even talking about a conviction. We’re talking about an accusation. Are you actually claiming it is “very rare” for an accusation to be false?

    Despite not liking August Invictus, I utterly despise the way people will see someone was ACCUSED of something and then suddenly assume that means they must be guilty of it. Because, as far as I can tell, that’s all we have: Someone ACCUSED him of something, and we (so far) don’t even know if they have any proof whatsoever.

  13. Wang Tang-Fu

    It’s true, we have no way of knowing if this particular accusation is true or not. But based on numerous other things Invictus has both said and done, it’s highly believable and would in no way whatsoever be surprising if it was true.

  14. Andy

    I have been arrested twice, both time for gathering petition signatures in places open to the public (which were clearly government owned, and which the courts have already ruled on multiple occasions are fair grounds for 1st amendment activities), and both times the police LIED in the police reports, and hit me with multiple FALSE charges. Both times all of the charges were thrown out, because there was no substance to any of them.

    I have had other people spread lies about me on other occasions.

    So I know what it is like to be falsely accused.

    I don’t have enough information to say whether these charges against Augustus Invictus are true or not. If they are true, it is bad, and he should be locked up, but before there is a rush to judgment, let’s see some actual evidence.

    Here’s a question: Why would this chick stay with him for 15 months if he was such an abuser? The report said that she left him in January. Why is she just now getting around to filing a police report? The report says that he once beat her so badly that her eyes were swollen shut. Why didn’t she go to the police then? Did she go to a hospital after this beating? If so, is there a record of this? If not, why not?

    Has anyone checked the travel record for Augustus Invictus during this 15 month time period when he was in this relationship with this woman who claims that he abused her? I recall hearing about Augustus making trips that likely fell during this time period. I know he went to Portland, OR, and I believe headed up to Canada after that, but got stopped at the border and was not allowed in due to fear that there’d be violence from protesters at wherever it was in Canada that he was supposed to speak. I also recall him taking a trip to New York City for a speaking engagement. If things were so bad, why didn’t she bail when he was out of town? Are you telling me that she had no opportunity to leave, or to go to the police, or a hospital, for 15 months?

    He may or may not be guilty. Show us some evidence to back up the accusations. If he is guilty, he should go to jail, but I need to see some evidence that indicates guilt before I call for a conviction.

    It is also highly believable that this could be a crazy chick who is lying, or that this could be politically motivated.

    Here’s a question: Why would this chick stay with him for 15 months if he was such an abuser?

    Many people stay in abusive relationships, including for much longer. It’s called Stockholm syndrome.

    The report said that she left him in January. Why is she just now getting around to filing a police report?

    According to her, death threats. Read the report and pay attention to the dates.

    The report says that he once beat her so badly that her eyes were swollen shut. Why didn’t she go to the police then?

    Also covered in the report. She said she was afraid of him. He knows her family and job, where they all live, etc, and has made what can reasonably considered to be credible threats. Again according to her.

    Did she go to a hospital after this beating? If so, is there a record of this? If not, why not?

    Many abuse victims don’t go to the hospital. According to the report, at one point she did want to go to the hospital, or perhaps the injuries were too obvious, and he kept her prisoner until she healed up some. At other times, he may have intimidated her from seeking help, and both abusers and abused generally know that going to the hospital is likely to mean police involvement, jail, etc.

  17. paulie Post author

    I don’t think anyone is under any obligation to show you any evidence. In cases such as this generally a restraining order is the first order of business. He has been put on notice that law enforcement has been alerted to the threat in case anything happens. If nothing further happens and if he stays away from her that may be the end of it. There are lots and lots of cases of abuse that are not reported in time for anything to be done other than a restraining order. And in those cases where charges are pursued, it takes a long time for the court system to deal with them and the evidence is generally not disclosed at least until after the legal proceedings are over, and may be sealed or partially sealed even then.

  18. Jill Pyeatt

    Here’s a question: Why would this chick stay with him for 15 months if he was such an abuser?

    Unfortunately, even a strong woman like me gets involved in an abusive relationship without even realizing it until it’s difficult to get out of. There are myriad reasons we stay until it’s the right time to break away.

    It’s when we leave that the danger is highest.

    So you are telling me that in this day and age of cell phones, domestic abuse hotlines, etc…, that this woman could have been beaten, with both of her eyes swollen, and there is NO POLICE REPORT OF THIS, and NO HOSPITAL REPORT OF THIS?

    I will tell you something else that happens all the time, and that is people LYING about other people, including filing false police reports.

    So somebody needs to go to jail here, either Invictus for being a domestic abuser, or this woman, for filing a false police report.

    One thing that really disgusts me is that those who file false police reports (including the police themselves, as there are many instances where they lie in their reports and fabricate charges against people), usually get away with it.

  23. Thomas L. Knapp

    “So somebody needs to go to jail here, either Invictus for being a domestic abuser, or this woman, for filing a false police report.”

    In order for Invictus to go to jail for being a domestic abuser, the FIRST step would be for the alleged victim to actually complain in the actual jurisdiction where the actual abuse allegedly occurred. This was an “informational report,” probably filed as precursor to requesting a protective order in another jurisdiction. It might technically be actionable if not true, but no prosecutor in his right mind would waste time or money on it.

  24. paulie Post author

    If she doesn’t have any evidence of the abuse, because it was months ago, she may still have grounds for a restraining order based on her fear of him. That in itself does not automatically mean either party needs to go to jail. Not every threat can be proven, but that does not mean it is not a threat.

    And if she does have evidence of abuse or threats and wants to press charges, that process will take some time, and it’s highly unlikely that making the evidence public will be a top priority, or even that it will happen at all. Again that doesn’t mean that the evidence does not exist much less that she should go to jail.

    Andy appears to be highly unfamiliar with what happens in domestic abuse situations on a routine basis. Some reading up may be in order. I know Andy knows how to use search engines.

    I didn’t understand, either, Andy, until it happened to someone very close to me. The dynamics between individuals is very complicated. Often someone dominates the other, and the weaker person’s self-esteem keeps getting eroded, a little at a time. That poor self-esteem may come from something other than the abuser, and the two may not even be conscious of what’s going on. Even when the weaker person identifies the problem and wants out, it still may not be easy. If there are kids or property involved, everything just gets complicated.

    What I don’t understand is why a woman stays with a man who hurts her child. If that ever happened to my kid, there would never be another opportunity for the man to do it again because he’d be gone, or we would be.

    If it turns out that Augustus is innocent, will those condemning Augustus issue an apology, and call for this woman to be prosecuted for filing a false police report (note that people who file false police reports usually get away with it)?

    Like I said above, somebody needs to go to jail, either Augustus for being a domestic abuser, or this woman for filing a false police report.

    And like I said above, no, it’s not necessarily true that someone needs to go to jail.

    If it turns out that Augustus is innocent

    That’s a whole different standard of proof than failing to prove that he is guilty beyond the shadow of a doubt. That’s the protection the law entitles him, and it should. But not proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that he is guilty (and it may well be proved that he is) is not the same thing as proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that she lied. In between there is a huge probability that neither case can be legally proven at this point, months later. Nevertheless, if she does not feel safe, it’s perfectly legitimate for her to report that and seek an order of protection. That doesn’t require proving beyond the shadow of a doubt in a court of law that the abuse took place. The latter may or may not happen, and if it does, it won’t happen immediately.

  32. Jill Pyeatt

    “If it turns out that Augustus is innocent,”

    How will we know? He probably thinks he’s innocent, even it things unfolded exactly the way the woman says.

    He likes the man’s positions. He’s been defending him or trotting out the “jury is still out” song and dance on the guy ever since the PA thing got legs.

    The naive position is thinking Andy heard the xenophobic rantings of this guy about the Muslim hordes infecting European culture and thinking he felt anything but admiration.

    Or at the very least the hope that the guy is not a crazy as he seems.

    Sadly, for Andy, his great white hope is turning out to be the lunatic everyone knew he was.

    goat blood drinker

    I actually prefer to bring up the torture and dismemberment rather than drinking blood. I have killed animals myself and have drunk animal blood, and I’ve certainly eaten plenty of animals (including goats) that other people have killed. So none of that is a big deal to me. But the fifteen minutes of agonizing torture and dismemberment that led to the killing of the goat is a separate issue. That’s seriously sick, and a likely indication of someone who would rape, brutalize and torture human beings as well. It takes a lot to get kicked out of OTO and Invictus managed to that with this stunt. It should also tell you something that he does not want to make the video public again to address these very serious charges.

  35. paulie Post author

    His remarks that he would put someone in the hospital if the pie him in the face (and then press charges) is indicative as well. As are the rape fantasies he has published about kidnapping, imprisoning and torturing underage girls.

    The writings describe several fantasies of violence. In one point there is a description of a fantasy of murdering a random jogger encountered in the Thornton Park neighborhood of Orlando. In another the writings declare a desire to rape a woman spotted in a Thornton Park bar. There are other, frequent allusions to guns and bullets and fantasies of their use.

  37. Anthony Dlugos

    Those are good points, paulie.

    I think I call him the goat blood drinker because my typical tactic is to go to humor, especially with totalitarians of any stripe, as humor is what they hate the most.

    But, to be serious for a minute, yes, the dismemberment stuff is worse. The phoney-baloney accent, the alter egos, the aliases. This goes well beyond eccentric, or even crazy. There’s gotta be some serious unresolved trauma in this guy’s past that he is covering up with all that.

    I don’t envy anyone who is alone with him for any length of time.

    Domestic violence is a legitimate crime. This is something that would still be a crime even in a libertarian society.

    Since we currently rely on government for law enforcement (as corrupt and inefficient as it is), then I would not prioritize cutting taxpayer funded domestic violence hotlines (if they exist), except for maybe if there were a market alternatives already set up to take its place.

    I do think that government police cause more harm than good, but we are not in a realistic position to eliminate them, and in the interim, somebody has got to arrest the murderers, rapists, child molesters, robbers, arsonists, and the people who do other things that would still be crimes if we had a libertarian society.

    A claim for which, so far, exactly as much evidence has been provided as for her claims in the police report.

    Hopefully the LPF will find a way to retreat from the fuck-stupid idea of giving in to Invictus’s threats of malicious litigation over an old press release. If he gets his way this time, he will be back for more.

    BTW, why are you afraid to identify yourself?

  41. Thomas L. Knapp

    —–
    Invictus said, “It is a desperate political ploy in the wake of total defeat.”
    —–

    For once, I agree with Augustus. He got his ass whipped so badly in last year’s US Senate primary that if he was sane he would have gone off looking for some place he was wanted.

    Instead, he made a Hail Mary threat of a frivolous lawsuit if LPF didn’t retract an old press release that he blames for his troubles (hint: Constantly stomping on his own crank in public has done him far more harm than an LPF press release ever could).

    LPF should have — in suitable legalese, of course — told him to go fuck himself.

    Note to self: Find the roll call vote of the LPF’s executive committee on the motion to appease Invictus. Nobody who voted in favor of that motion should ever be trusted with control of the party’s operations or assets again.

    I know that they have counselors on those domestic abuse hotlines. I even know somebody who was looking to become a domestic abuse hotline counselor at one time (I’m not sure if they ever did it or not). I don’t know the extent of whether or not they receive taxpayer funding, or how much taxpayer funding they receive, or if they are private charities, or if they are a combination of private charities and some are run in full or in part by government.

    I’d assume that there are likely situations where domestic violence hotline counselors do call the police.

    Regardless of this, my point was that domestic violence is a crime (sometimes women engage in domestic violence, and this is usually under-reported), and that it is something that would still be a crime in a libertarian society.

    Being that we don’t live in a libertarian ancap society, we rely on the government’s police and court system to arrest and prosecute criminals, so I don’t think that it is unreasonable to say that the government should arrest and prosecute those who commit domestic violence, assuming that there is enough evidence to merit prosecuting somebody,

    It is great when there are market alternatives to the government’s police and courts, but sometimes we have to operate within the world in which we currently live.

    Tony,

    Police as we know them have only been around for a couple of centuries (outside of large cities in the US, much less than that) and seem to represent a spectacular case of government failure in virtually every respect. The question is not so much what the alternative is as why shouldn’t virtually any alternative to a system that clearly doesn’t work get a shot?

    The court system as we know it is somewhat older — hard to pick a point in time, but possibly as old as 800 years — and has had some interesting evolutions. In the US, private arbitration has been not only a market alternative, but also a government alternative, to the courts for a long time (the Federal Arbitration Act was passed in 1925).

    This is a long discussion to get into, but there are a bunch of libertarians who have made proposals for non-coercive government alternatives to the police and government courts.

    I don’t think anyone is under any obligation to show you any evidence.”

    Nobody is obligated to show anyone here the evidence (unless they want us to support the woman making the claim, or Invictus, depending upon what the evidence indicates), but since a police report has been filed, there is an obligation to back these allegations up to the police, and to the courts.

    Augustus Invictus is not racist. His accuser is a drug addict, a liar and a prostitute. She is acting out of revenge because she has been spurned by Invictus, but it is her fault that she was not able to maintain his sexual interest. She is also being paid by Paul Stanton, who is acting as a bagman for Israeli intelligence and the New World Order because they realize that Augustus Invictus is a threat to their power. Stanton emerged from nowhere with a shadowy past and is much closer to a liberal or a progressive than a libertarian. The ploy has failed, and the LPF will be apologizing to Invictus with a statement expected on Friday for their censure last year. Invictus will be the next LPF Chair and the next national chair of the LNC.

  55. paulie Post author

    From an anonymous source: Invictus’ book, Il Tempio Florido … where he claims to rape a 14-year-old girl in Mexico. The book is written under a pseudonym, Franco A. Saint-Fond, but does include a picture of him. Additionally, he lists it as non-fiction. Even if just a fantasy of his, it may be worth noting, given recent allegations.

    Another interesting thing to note is there’s a swastika on the back of the book – that is supposed to resemble his law firm. His law firm, Imperium, was of course named after a book (of the same name) dedicated to Hitler.

  56. paulie Post author

    Augustus Invictus is not racist.

    There are way too many ways to prove this is bullshit. For starters, he frequently speaks at racist gatherings and on racist radio/podcasts. He networks constantly with racist groups and has been a member of the National Socialist Movement, which he addressed recently. His “letter to the peoples of Europe” is racist trash. He didn’t just represent the neo-nazi group American Front as a lawyer, he is close personal friends with multiple members of this group and him and the leader of the group consider each other to be like brothers and have praised each other publicly. He described Ezra Pound as “my fellow American fascist” in late 2013. He continues to use fascist symbols all over his campaigns. He posted his ramblings about eugenics and “fear of the Jews” (among other things) to his campaign website. In Portland, he appealed to his fans to stick together like the fasces and got the fasces tattooed on his back by a prominent white nationalist. That was during his Senate campaign. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you even begin to look into it in any kind of detail it is more than obvious that he remains a racist and a fascist to this day.

  57. paulie Post author

    The case has been referred to the State Attorney’s Office. According to the referral letter “Some of her more serious injuries persist to the present day.” The referral letter has “relevant corroborative phone records and the names and contact information for people mentioned over the course of the statement.” It mentions that a protective order will be sought and will extend not just to Invictus but also to various friends and followers of his such as members of the American Front. Invictus has allegedly issued threats and attempted witness tampering. However, there are corroborating witnesses who are expected to come forward. Potential charges include physical assault or battery, sexual assault, false imprisonment, statutory rape (the alleged victim was 17 when the relationship started), and witness tampering. There may also be recordings of some of the violence and/or threats.

    One other thing.

    What is not compatible with libertarianism on the other hand is shutting down conferences and speakers through intimidation. Nor is it libertarian to assault speakers with pies to shut down their free speech. It does indeed constitute battery and assault and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. And any force that is used in retaliation including lethal force is fully justified because it is the pie throwers who initiate aggression.

    More from my anonymous source:

    This was caught by Adrian Wyllie (in the Florida Libertarian FB group). Here’s an awful hour-long podcast from “Sunshine Fascists” featuring Augustus Sol Invictus – they discuss killing “Mooslems,” Jews and Gay people. (It has since been taken down from YouTube.)

    “What is not compatible with libertarianism on the other hand is shutting down conferences and speakers through intimidation.”

    Very, very true.

    The group behind the threats against the event in Pennsylvania seems to be a fictional organization, which raises the question of whether the people behind it were Augustus’s enemies trying to stop him from speaking or Augustus’s friends trying to increase his fame as a professional victim.

  64. Anthony Dlugos

    “Augustus’s friends trying to increase his fame as a professional victim.”

    “they discuss killing “Mooslems,” Jews and Gay people. (It has since been taken down from YouTube.)”

    I have not heard this, but there is another interview with Augustus where he says that his younger brother is gay, and that he has friends that are Jewish. Also note that he was married to a woman who is Hispanic, and he has 4 half Hispanic children.

  66. Andy

    Thomas Knapp said: “The group behind the threats against the event in Pennsylvania seems to be a fictional organization, which raises the question of whether the people behind it were Augustus’s enemies trying to stop him from speaking or Augustus’s friends trying to increase his fame as a professional victim.”

    I was wondering the same thing, but there were Antifa protesters outside of an event he spoke at in Portland, OR.

    I also wonder if the threats came from government plants, and I still wonder if Augustus is a government plant. The threats also could have came from people in the LP. The threats also could have have been fictional, as in no threats were actually made, somebody just made it up, or exaggerated something that MIGHT happen based on what happened in Portland.

    It is not as though Augustus is a very well known person, so I find it hard to believe that there are lots of people who’d even know who he is and would be motivated enough to try to block him from speaking.

    There are people out there who are far more known, and more controversial, than Augustus, who are still able to get speaking engagements.

  67. Thomas L. Knapp

    “half Hispanic”

    There’s no such thing. You’re either Hispanic (of Spanish-speaking ancestry and identifying with the Spanish-speaking community) or you aren’t.

  68. paulie Post author

    There was actually a public campaign to have people call the hotel and tell them there would be protests, that they may not want to associate their property with fascist speakers and so on. The group that put that out denies having anything to do with any bomb threats, and there has been no evidence that I have seen that bomb threats happened. Just the controversy and the threat of protests, negative publicity and boycotts may well have been enough to have hotels want to have nothing to do with it. Protests, negative publicity and boycotts are not initiations of force.

    Throwing pies is somewhat borderline, but it is closer to free speech than actual assault. The person getting pied is embarrassed but not injured in any way. If they choose to they can even go on speaking. They may be owed some compensation for dry cleaning and the hassle of dealing with it but it’s insane to suggest that it’s proper to hospitalize much less kill someone for throwing a pie at you.

    Shone forth their blessings and bound our fates
    She was chosen, dedicated.

    Actual animal torture and dismemberment + rape fantasies + justifying the idea of hospitalizing people if they throw a pie at you = good reasons to believe that a woman accusing such a person of raping, beating and abusing her is likely to be telling the truth.

    So what I see here is another “he said she said” story where we may never know the truth, unless for example if we discover proof that the hooker got paid by Stanton and the Zionist Israelis he works for. Sadly a lot of times when couples break up especially when a woman is rejected by a man she is obsessed with and cast aside, there are false accusations thrown and the fact that the man is a public figure involved in politics creates additional incentive for a young woman who is strung out on drugs to say very horrible things about him even if there is no truth to them at all. While the allegations continue to be thrown with no evidence, what is actually factual and deserves to be a story is that the LPF executive committee nearly unanimously voted, to withdraw its censure of Augustus Invictus that was filled with lies about him and to authorize the chair to issue a full retraction and apology that is expected to come on Friday.

    Alex whoever . . . ” . . . . homosexual Zionist plant Paul Stanton . . . . ”

    What? What does his sexuality have to do with anything? This thread is just frickin weird.

  74. Thomas L. Knapp

    Tony,

    It’s hard to tell whether these trolls are really supporting Invictus or whether their whole point in going so over the top with things is to discredit him.

    Paul Stanton is engaged to a woman, but if he was a homosexual I fail to see what that would have to do with anything. I’ve never heard that he’s a Zionist. Maybe I’ll ask him some time.

    Invictus’s real supporters are pretty odd when it comes to Stanton.

    They whined and whined and whined that Stanton wouldn’t debate Invictus. Then when Invictus got invited to debate Stanton, he ran like from the opportunity like the coward he is. A few days after the debate that Invictus avoided, they started whining again about mean ol’ Paul Stanton not debating poor little Augustus Invictus.

    They issued dark statements about the identities of Stanton’s listed campaign donors (who turned out to be family members) even while their own candidate suddenly stopped filing campaign finance reports months before paying a filing fee representing a great deal more than his reported contributions. I don’t know if Invictus ever has revealed who HIS backers in the Senate race were.

    I honestly don’t think that Invictus has any there, there. His whole schtick is “look at me, look at how outrageous I am,” but he quails from any substantive engagement, which is probably why I think it was probably his supporters who created a fake Antifa group to get the Pennsylvania event canceled and save him from getting his ass whipped (figuratively, of course) by Will Coley.

    and

    Paul Stanton: I’m really tired of hearing him called a “Right Libertarian.”

    Adrian Wyllie: He only remains relevant because the LPF keeps capitulating to him.

    Paul Stanton: I have to agree with Adrian here. There are people within the LPF who capitulate to his demands and actively (positively) promote him. The LPF should never be a safe space for fascists.

    Paul Stanton: My campaign did focus on me. His focused on me too. It was somewhat flattering. They made up lots of fun things, too! Last I heard, I’m an Israeli government mole in league with Communists and any random criminal with the last name of Stanton. I’m also a pawn of Adrian Wyllie who loves the FED, and a COINTELPRO agent, or something like that.

    Well, if this thread is any indication, any charges of domestic assault against anyone in the Augustus circle I would automatically presume to be made up by other members of said circle as primary means to fabricate evidence of having a sexual experience beyond the companionship of their right hands. You know, there is reason these dorks need to wear hoods :()

    “I’m just sick of my party placating this guy.”

    This.

    The LPF shouldn’t withdraw anything, and there’s nothing to “mediate.”

    If you pay the Danegeld, you never get rid of the Dane. Augustus takes a break from making himself look like an asshole in public and comes around to whine that it’s LPF’s fault. He gets treated as if his complaints were legitimate. That means there will be a next time. The only appropriate answer to the current fracas is some toned-down legalese version of “go fuck yourself, if you don’t like it we’ll see you in court and you’ll like THAT even less.”

    ‘half Hispanic’

    There’s no such thing. You’re either Hispanic (of Spanish-speaking ancestry and identifying with the Spanish-speaking community) or you aren’t.”

    I disagree with your designation.

    Hispanic is not a race, so there are various races, or mixtures of races, that fall under the umbrella of Hispanic. Some Hispanics are actually white. Many Hispanics are mixed race (Spanish and some native American tribe that was in the present day Hispanic countries before the Spanish arrived, and possibly some other stuff, like genes that go back to when the Moors invaded Spain, etc…).

    Given that it has become fashionable for white looking Americans who have small amounts of Native American (aka-American Indian) ancestry to claim to be American Indians, even if they are only say 1% or less of some American Indian tribe, as well as for black Americans to claim to be American Indians, even if they are only a small percent (and note that in some cases black Americans who thought that they were part American Indian found out that they were actually part white after they took a DNA test, and not part American Indian at all (studies indicate that 85% of black Americans are in fact part white, and that few black Americans have American Indian ancestry)), I could go around claiming to be Hispanic. Perhaps I could even apply for Affirmative Action as a Hispanic, since I am something like 12.5% Hispanic by way of South America. I had a great-grandmother who was from South America who came to the USA around 1920. I had a great-grandfather (who was Dutch) who worked on ships, and he apparently met her while in port in South America, and brought her back to the USA (he came to the USA in the early 1900’s). They had two kids, one of which was my grandfather. He married an old stock American women of English and Scottish descent who was my grandmother.

    I have not done a DNA test, but as far as I know this is accurate, so with a great-grandmother who was from South America, and of Spanish descent, I can call myself Hispanic. If my father’s father had taken his mother’s maiden name, I’d have a Spanish last name (although I only know what her first name was, not the last name, but it was some Spanish name). So I could be Andy Lopez or Andy Ortiz or Andy Guiterezz or Andy Guerrero or something like that.

    I am not fluent in Spanish, but I took a year of Spanish in high school, and I have picked up a little bit of Spanish here and there. I spent a lot of time around Spanish speaking people in the southwest, and I like to eat tacos and burritos and fajitas.

    I saw a picture online of Augustus with his kids. I think his wife (who I think is an ex-wife now) may have been in the picture as well. She is from Puerto Rico. I used to know a Puerto Rican guy who looked pretty white (dark hair, but fair skin), but some Puerto Ricans are more brown. The wife (or ex-wife) of Augustus was of the more brown variety, and his kids look brownish as well. Augustus says that he speaks Spanish, and his wife (or ex-wife) speaks Spanish as well, and I think he said his children do as well (they speak English as well of course).

    Augustus said that he is of Scottish and English descent.

  80. Thomas L. Knapp

    “Hispanic is not a race”

    Exactly.

    Either you identify with the Spanish-speaking community (you are Hispanic) or you don’t (you are not Hispanic). You can be white, brown, black, whatever, and that has nothing whatsoever to do with whether or not you are Hispanic.

    There is no “half Hispanic.” You are or you aren’t.

  81. paulie Post author

    Most Americans (and for that matter people all over the world) are a mix of cultures and ethnicities. That’s part of why it is so stupid to discuss the US as a country having a racial or ethnic basis. In my own case I am a mix of Jewish, Russian, Ukrainian, Mongol/Siberian native, and smaller portions of various ethnicities from all over Europe and Asia. I have family that I know of in the US, Russia, Ukraine and Israel. If I am not infertile I have biological descendents of all the so-called races all over the US, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, probably Canada and most likely other parts of the world as well. My ex was Mexican and Scots-Irish, and I’ve spent lots of time in US barrios, all over Mexico and Central America, etc. Ideologies which seek to separate races, ethnicities and cultures or limit the migration and travel of people to different parts of the world and or trade between nations are antithetical to liberty as well as cultural and economic progress alike.

  96. Gerhard Volkman

    It should be pointed out that a few things were ignored in this article. For example, the young woman making the complaint, is an emotional unstable and very immature person with mental problems who has problems with white powdery substances and is involved in the sex trade. She became very focused IE obsessed on her relationship with an older man who became her mentor and teacher and for some time satisfied her craving to be dominated, but her infedility, jealousy, bad behavior, insubordination and ultimate inability to deal with the end of the relationship has caused her to careen out of control and spin lurid tales of abuse.

    Now we can’t actually know whether Zionist-Communist globalists used the shadowy Paul Stanton, if indeed that is his real name, to pay her but is it really a coincidence that these rather far fetched charges are coming at the same time as the vote by the board of the Florida Libertarians to apologize to Mr. Invictus, to which the aformentioned Stanton was the sole dissenting vote? Consider also that this Paul Stanton character who emerged from nowhere at the last possible minute gained an unfair advantage from the libelous and false intervention of the prior Florida Libertarian board in the primary, and almost certainly won that primary for that reason and none other. When considering these additional facts I do believe that we can see the issues discussed by the heavily biased author in a very different light.

  97. Thomas L. Knapp

    Several thousand people voted in the Libertarian primary for US Senate from Florida last year. My recollection is that about 80% of them voted for Stanton.

    I would be surprised if even a few HUNDRED of those voters noticed what the Libertarian Party said about Stanton (that’s leaving aside the irrefutable fact that what it said was neither false nor libelous).

    Invictus’s supporters talked him up as someone who was good at getting publicity, and they were right. He generated lots of publicity, all on his own, with very little help from Paul Stanton or LPF.

    Of the 80% of LPF primary voters who supported Stanton, my guess is that perhaps a quarter of them had significant exposure to him. The rest had significant exposure to Invictus and he busted his ass successfully convincing them that he was an evil whackjob whom they should never, ever, ever consider voting for.

    To all of Augustus’ friends, even if it is just one of you leaving all the comments:

    You are protesting too much. If he is innocent, we’ll know soon enough. The excuses you’re giving are classic excuses for abusers to use to try to excuse their inexcusable behavior, Even if the young lady is drug-addicted, she doesn’t deserve to be harassed.

    Thanks for the correction, Thane. I keep thinking Invictus lost by a 4-1 margin when it was actually about 3-1, and should have gone back and checked the figures again (it’s not the first time I misremembered them).

    But still, other than the debate that Augustus ran like a cur from, he got multiples of the publicity and public exposure that Stanton got. Unfortunately, that publicity mostly had a “Jesus Christ, I’d never vote for that freak” effect. It’s not so much that Stanton whipped his ass as that he whipped his own ass. And he continues to blame everyone else for his poor PR skills.

    Andy is a good guy — if I lived in Milwaukee I would have enthusiastically voted for him in a heartbeat against his dull and intellectually deficient major-party rival last year — and he’s absolutely right, as are several others who commented on this disturbing development. If the Libertarian Party of Florida’s executive committee actually issued any kind of apology to Invictus, the party’s leadership here in the Sunshine State needs an enema — and quickly. It’ll be messy, but if the apology is true it needs to be done.
