Update on rape, assault, kidnapping and witness tampering allegations against Augustus Invictus

Updates on prior story and discussion:

First, the official response from Team Invictus:

Orlando – Executive Members of the Libertarian Party of Florida take a step in the right direction by accepting mediation terms with Augustus Sol Invictus, Publisher of the Revolutionary Conservative.

“There was a desire of everyone to move forward,” said Invictus, who is an LPF volunteer on the Legislative Committee. “I was very happy to see the Executive Committee authorize the Chair to correct the false allegations made against me by Adrian Wyllie and others.”

In Oct. 2015, under the confines of a different committee, a Press Release was issued by the LPF condemning Invictus in error. He has been waiting for a correction of the defamatory verbiage for 18 months. Mediation and a corrected press release are expected by Friday, said Invictus.

“I think last night was a strict and total rebuke of divisive tactics and a clear message that the LPF has, save a few members, moved past the 2016 Senate race,” said Executive Committee Member Joshua Folsom.

Invictus’ former opponent, who was recently appointed to the Committee, attempted to sabotage the mediation by formal motion and confrontation. His attempts were met with zero support, said Invictus. “It was humiliating for my opponent when he lost everything.”

During and after the Senate election in Aug. 2016, his opponent continued to spread outlandish innuendo, rumor, and falsities about him, he added. “The only vote against the peaceful, reasonable solution to this longstanding problem was my former opponent, who shares Wylie’s bigoted obsession with keeping the LPF bogged down in personal hatreds.”

Defamatory strikes aimed at Invictus, not surprisingly, came the morning following the Committee meeting, he said. “This outrageous circus is naked retaliation for the fact that they are upset about the divisions in the party finally being healed.”

Folsom, who is Region Rep. Three, said he was frustrated by the reaction of the same detractors, the very next morning. “I would have hoped that the Sunday EC meeting was a clear enough signal that the LPF is tired of this mud-slinging and the timing certainly is disappointing.”

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

*Official Response, Board of Directors, The Revolutionary Conservative: The absurd allegations against Augustus Sol Invictus, upon information and belief, are being made by a person who is a longtime drug addict, involved with prostitution, and a fully unreliable source.

Regarding the mediation and anticipated retraction/apology, one anonymous source on the LPF EC informed me that one of the motivating factors was that attorneys wanted a $10,000 retainer if Invictus moved ahead with his threatened lawsuit against LPF over last year’s press release.

Second, Alexandra Brown set up a crowdfunding page: “Fight the Silencing of Domestic Violence Survivors”

Friends,

I am writing today to request help fighting an offensive lawsuit for defamation which I am now facing, as a result of having spoken out about prominent alt-right politician Augustus Invictus (born Austin Gillespie).Augustus Invictus became known to me in the media coverage of his campaign for U.S. Senator with the Libertarian Party in Florida in 2015. That media coverage occurred as a result of the contentious nature of his campaign, which involved the revelation of biographical material about Mr. Invictus including his calls for a civil war and his ritualistic pagan sacrifice of a goat. Mr. Invictus is a member of the alt-right community and a former member of a group called “National Socialist Movement.” I interviewed him twice when I was doing some academic research on the appropriation of Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophical rhetoric by the Third Reich, and was seeking to compare Nietzsche to confirmed Nazi political philosopher, Carl Schmitt, by whom I knew Mr. Invictus was influenced. I did not at that time know the extent of his theoretical and political entanglement with fascism.

My last interview was in January of this year. Shortly after that, Mr. Invictus mysteriously cut off contact with me, after learning that I was in continued contact with his ex-fiancee, who I will call “Jane.” Jane told me, and she told the police, that she had been subjected to domestic violence. The exact details of her account and her identity cannot be shared now for legal and privacy purposes, but suffice it to say that her story is harrowing and deeply disturbing.

I published a blog post as part of my own attempt to process these allegations about Augustus, who I had considered a friend (much to the chagrin of my other, mostly left-leaning friends). This blog post was picked up by the website ItsGoingDown.org as a source for an article on Augustus. Augustus found this article. As a result, I’m now being sued for defamation. In addition, Augustus is attempting to speciously report me to the Federal Government for fraud—because I collect disability and work as a webcam model. Augustus’ attorney provided me with the option of retracting my statements. However, as a domestic violence survivor myself, and a firm believer in the freedom of speech, I refuse to comply with their demands for retraction. Admittedly, given the nature of Augustus’ threats and the character of his following, fighting this could put my own safety as well as Jane’s at risk. However, we are taking the appropriate precautions. We are willing to fight to preserve our First-Amendment guaranteed right to speak truthfully about Augustus’ past misdeeds.

We have secured legal representation. While my lawyer is generously willing to work with my financial situation, my means are admittedly limited. This is a battle of conscience and a matter of principle, a project which I am undertaking at my own personal expense. I hope that you can see the importance of fighting this particular battle against a well-known “alt-right” politician at this particular moment in history when women’s rights are under threat. Jane should not face legal repercussions for speaking out, and nor should I for wanting to advocate for her. Any funds I collect will go directly to cover all legal costs associated with my impending defamation lawsuit, which both Jane and I are now facing.

Thanks so much in advance for your contributions and support.

Best,

Alexandria Brown

Third, by way of another article on this developing situation:

… Okyay, his spokeswoman, said Invictus is taking legal action against his accuser.

Fourth, 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.

Fifth, we received an additional file regarding the case from an anonymous source, not for publication. 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.” (The version we received, however, did not have that portion attached). 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, the letter says 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. These are alluded to in the document we received but not included with the version we got.

Stay tuned for more as the situation develops and join the discussion in the comments in the meantime.

UPDATE Corrections to the last section: 1) The referral letter to State Attorney’s Office has not been sent at this time. 2) No recordings of violence or threats, but allegedly the alleged victim had photographic evidence of injuries on her phone which Invictus allegedly deleted, and which she is trying to recover with no success so far.

    If Augustus turns out to be guilty of domestic violence, I agree that this is a very bad thing, but notice how the left wing Social Justice Warrior Caucus in the LP is freaking out over this yet to be proven accusations against Augustus, yet these same people have shrugged off all of the documented examples of mass Muslim migration leading to big increases in rape that I posted here. Rape, domestic violence, and child abuse are national past times in Muslim nations, yet the leftist PC SJW Caucus in the LP thinks it is a wonderful idea to open the door so unlimited numbers of these people can enter the USA, even if a high percentage of them get on welfare (91.4% according to current statistics).

    Augustus is not the first LP member to be accused of something like this. The late Native American activist Russell Means was involved in a domestic violence controversy. John McAfee was accused of murder, and Judd Weiss was accused of rape. I have no beef with McAfee or Weiss, and I presume both are innocent of the accusations, but I am just pointing out that they were accused.

    Social Justice Warrior Caucus in the LP is freaking out over this yet to be proven accusations against Augustus

    Not nearly to the extent you and his other white-hooded pals are freaking out to defend him.

    same people have shrugged off all of the documented examples of mass Muslim migration leading to big increases in rape that I posted here.

    Shrugged off? No, the usual response to “your documentation” is to mock your sources and assail your bigoted reasoning.

    “notice how the left wing Social Justice Warrior Caucus in the LP is freaking out over this”

    I expect I would notice that if it was happening. To the extent that such a group exists, which is barely, all I’ve seen from them about this are a few shrugs and “well, duh, that’s exactly the kind of shit his public persona hints at so if it’s true it’s no surprise.”

    I don’t have an opinion on the truth or falsehood of the accuser’s claims for the simple reason that yes, false accusations ARE made all the time after breakups. But “she’s a drug-addled whore” is an evasion, not a rebuttal, and Invictus’s supporters are doing him a disservice by taking that route. If he’s encouraging them to do that, he’s pretty much doing the equivalent of taking a ball peen hammer to his own testicles.

    The trashed comment was from an anonymizer. Dunno if it’s Norman or not. He usually posts from a cell phone without an anonymizer. But the anonymized comments (or some of them) may also be him, or some of them or none…hard to say.

    yet to be proven accusations against Augustus

    It’s true that the justice system does not operate at the speed of internet comment. That doesn’t mean we have to presume innocence in informal conversation; that presumption is only due in a court of law. There are lots of indicators that he is likely to be guilty including actual animal torture and dismemberment, multiple published rape fantasies (including one that was self-categorized as non-fiction), and his publicly stated threat that anyone who throws a pie at him would wake up in the hospital and then be charged with assault for throwing the pie. These are all signs, among others, of someone who would do things like this to a woman.

    have shrugged off all of the documented examples of mass Muslim migration leading to big increases in rape that I posted here.

    Haven’t shrugged it off. Your deceptive statistics were addressed already on multiple threads as was the very unlibertarian notion of collective punishment based on nationality, ethnicity, race or religion.

    (91.4% according to current statistics).

    Source? Your further claim that it’s “for years” on another thread is even more dubious.

    John McAfee was accused of murder, and Judd Weiss was accused of rape.

    Rape is an exaggerated term for what Weiss is accused of, and both of those accusations refer to single incidents, not ongoing patterns of abuse. However you may be correct that Means was accused of a pattern of domestic abuse. I don’t recall it involving sexual assault, but I don’t remember any details about it in general.

  7. Thomas L. Knapp

    “John McAfee was accused of murder”

    Not if “accused of” implies “charged with” or “designated by law enforcement as a suspect in.”

    The Belize government’s line has always been that he’s someone they’d like to talk to because they think he might have information on the matter.

  8. Shane

    Paulie I’m surprised you want to jump on the bandwagon to condemn this guy so quickly. Have you spoken with him?

    Here’s the way I see things.

    Leftists have been usIng clearly criminal political tactics for a while and since Trump was elected I’ve seen a stark escalation.

    I’ve seen people stalked and threatened by crazed operatives — one even throwing himself down a stairwell and claimed assault.

    Just in the last month I’ve seen a series of attempts at fraud followed by someone filing a fake organizing document with the FEC (a crime), just to harm the non-profit status of a client.

    And let’s not forget that incidents of “swatting” that erupted when one liberal activist was released from prison a few years ago.

    The commonality here is that these political attacks have the intent of using the power of government against opposition.

    That’s nothing new at the highest echelons of government (Hillary and Filegate, IRS under Clinton and Obama and now Susan Rice against Trump), but now at the lowest levels we’re seeing clumsy attempts at the same tactic.

    In a normal, right-side-up world, the accusations against Invictus would be damning, but when politics of the left is involved, you can’t rule out any type of craziness.

  9. paulie Post author

    No, I don’t talk to Invictus. Never have, and haven’t ever felt any urge to.

    https://www.facebook.com/augustus.invictus.3/videos/424491321217302/ Allegedly this video contains threats against two unnamed individuals and Paul Stanton. I haven’t watched it but those of you who care to do so can confirm or deny the threats.

    And from Stanton himself:

    Additionally, after that, he sent a message to me, via proxy of the LPF chair, Char-Lez Braden, telling me not to talk about the allegations.

    Or rather “Don’t talk about (name of alleged victim -p).”

    That coward couldn’t even address me himself.

    I’m not happy that our chair would pass along his demands.

    I’m not ruling out anything, but his actual torture and dismemberment of an animal is a fact, his published rape and murder fantasies (including one about raping a fourteen year old girl in Mexico that he himself categorized as nonfiction) have in fact been published, and his threats of violence against various specific people and calls for violence in a more generalized political way are all documented facts. No leftist opponents made those up. Those are what make the allegations so believable to me.

  12. Shane

    Paulie, I just wasted seven minutes of my life watching that video. No direct threats, just hyperbolic statements.

    How is it that a guy who is so insignificant is stirring up so much discontent? Did you ever stop to think that his tactic is to gain infamy? Otherwise he would be ignored.

    He’s like a sober Roger Stone with very thin skin. Still a waste of time.

  15. paulie Post author

    How is it that a guy who is so insignificant is stirring up so much discontent?

    It depends on what you mean by insignificant. His media footprint is pretty large for an LP candidate. It’s also fairly large for a fascist or white nationalist organizer. His twitter is in the 5-figure range of followers, FB maxed out. He frequently networks with various white “nationalist” (supremacist) groups and is the leading edge for the poisonous infusion of their (bowel) movement into the bloodstream of the LP. And the Florida LP is helping make him relevant again by apologizing to him for an accurate press release last year, because they are afraid he will bankrupt them if they defend themselves in court against his threatened (frivolous) libel lawsuit.

    Did you ever stop to think that his tactic is to gain infamy?

    I agree, that is his tactic. I would not be surprised if he was behind the alleged “bomb threats” against hotels where he was planning to speak in PA. I would be a little bit more surprised, but not entirely shocked, if he was behind these allegations of rape and abuse just to get more attention for himself. However that does not mean I will ignore him. These types of people can be ignored and laughed at, but so was Hitler. They do have the potential to become no laughing matter, and rather quickly.

    He’s like a sober Roger Stone with very thin skin.

    Invictus is sober? News to me.

    Still a waste of time.

    He may well be. Or not. I report, you decide.

  16. paulie Post author

    Minus the tattoo of Richard Nixon!

    Makes up for it with a big back tattoo of the fasces which he got done by a prominent white “nationalist” in Portland during his Senate campaign. So yes, essentially the same thing.

    But I wouldn’t laugh off Stone either, as he can derail an LP Gubernatorial campaign and cost the state party its best chance ever at ballot access one minute and have the ear of the current President of the US the next.

    Not if he’s incarcerated, which is not out of the realm of possibility 🙂

  18. paulie Post author

    You mean for his alleged involvement with alleged Russian espionage and manipulation of the US elections? Sure, he could be incarcerated. Maybe even share a cell with Invictus. If Trump is still president at that point maybe Stone would get a pardon from his buddy.

  20. paulie Post author

    Additionally from my anonymous source:

    “PS. Also, the “history of prostitution” is that the ex-fianceé did webcam modeling on two occasions. Webcam modeling, as you likely know, is fully legal and is not prostitution.”

    The letter that I have received not for publication does say the alleged victim has done cocaine, but not until Invictus introduced her to it. Since she was 17 when the relationship started and is 19 now that’s not what I would call a “long history of hard drug use” as some trolls have been claiming.

  21. Anonymous Insider

    Raquel Okyay, is press secretary for Invictus, and is a voting member of the LPF executive committee.

    Ryan Ramsey is a close Invictus confidant and alleged member of white supremacy and neo-nazi groups. He is also a voting member of the LPF executive committee.

    Both were appointed by the chair to fill vacancies, not elected.

    There other members who have close ties to Invictus, and are staunch supporters of his. The remaining members who oppose him are afraid to openly challenge him. Some have privately said they are afraid for their own safety.

    Knowing that, it’s not surprising that they keep voting to appease him.

    the only surefire solution to problems like these is a much larger party, one where the lunatic fringe is scared off or minimized by sheer numbers.

  24. paulie Post author

    Further from my anonymous source, paraphrased:

    Invictus was the one who suggested that the alleged victim do webcam modeling. She did that twice. That’s why he is now claiming she has a “history of prostitution.”

    Invictus also introduced her to cocaine, which she never did before. That’s the “long time drug addict” part.

  25. Thomas L. Knapp

    “the only surefire solution to problems like these is a much larger party, one where the lunatic fringe is scared off or minimized by sheer numbers.”

    Well, that’s presumably the reason for the hostile takeover attempt. Augustus and company look at the LP and they think it’s easier to take us and our ballot access and so forth over than it is to build their own party from scratch.

    We’re actually big enough to fend them off, as last year’s primary results demonstrate. But it takes having some goddamn balls instead of letting him lead us around by the sac.

  26. Anonymous Insider

    “Actually, I was in the room when Racquel was elected to represent her region on the executive committee.”

    I stand corrected on that.

    Actually, no. Collective action is dominated by the minority. A strong radical caucus, the libertarian wing of the libertarian party, is what will keep these fiends at bay. As I have written before, if the radical caucus went away, the paleoBots absolutely would capture the LP. All it would take is one organized capture of an off year platform convention, and it would be done.

    I’m amused by the puritanical lens that views cocaine and prostitution as character flaws. As opposed to say a cadre of unfuckable dorks who neither can afford cocaine nor find anyone who would have sex w/ them for free. Someone like ReaganTrumpWhitePatriot…well you know the ladies would have a real winner w/ that piece of work. lol

    Good point, dL. Let’s see, am I going to take the word of someone who makes an honest living selling a valuable service, or the word of a lawyer who wants to be a politician? Seems like pretty much a slam dunk, all other things being equal.

    In defense of Andy, I haven’t noticed him defending any of Augustus’s political positions, merely saying that he may not be guilty of a particular set of criminal allegations. I don’t recall him being any kind of Invictus fan in the past, either.

    If they received replies I don’t think they should be trashed. It makes the conversation look disjointed to anyone who reads it later. However, we do want to catch them before anyone answers and encourage readers to recognize them and not respond so as to make that weeding process easier. I would have trashed the same comments you did earlier except that they had replies by the time I saw them. Some others along the same lines I did catch and delete permanently.

    And yet, the times when I have seen the LP at its strongest and biggest relatively speaking during the past 25 years have been when it has been the most radical.

  37. Thomas L. Knapp

    As no fewer than three presidential elections in a row have irrefutably established, it’s not the LP’s radicalism that’s it’s problem vis a vis size. If three milquetoast moderate center-right presidential campaigns in a row and more than a decade of near total control by cargo cultists hasn’t destroyed our reputation as radical and made us into a big party, what would that take?

    It’s probably true that our size and accomplishments make us the target of the nationalists. These fuckheads want to hijack our ballot access, etc. instead of doing the work of building their own party from the ground up. But so far the only place they seem to be having any success is Florida, where they’re going to be a problem until we quit pretending they’re not the enemy.

  38. paulie Post author

    And the times when it got “reformed” we had swarms of far right types coming in, which would be perfect breeding grounds for the ideological cockroach eggs laid by the likes of Invictus. Hmmmm.

  39. Anthony Dlugos

    But, as I noted earlier, Andy knows he can’t come right out and defend The Sun God’s positions without outing himself completely. He has spent a lot of time parsing the positions of AI while totally denouncing Weld because of his association with the CFR. That says a lot.

    Outside of the Nazi flair of AI, they have a lot in common.

    hmmm. Yet Goat Blood Boy decided to come after the LP rather than trying to take over the Democratic or Republican Parties of Florida? Why?

    Thomas is right. He went after the smallest, easiest to capture party with full-on ballot access.

    I tend to think the Democrats or Republicans, parties who’ve long ago conceded they are in it to win, would have understood the threat immediately, and taken the dope out back and dismembered HIM. Figuratively speaking, of course.

    Instead, we have a substantial segment of the party that feels we have to hear him out.

  42. paulie Post author

    He went after the smallest, easiest to capture party with full-on ballot access.

    He didn’t; he want after the next biggest one to the Ds and Rs. There are several parties in Florida with ballot access that are smaller than the LP. Some of them lost that access, but only last year as a result of reinterpreted rules.

  43. John

  45. Anthony Dlugos

    “There are several parties in Florida with ballot access that are smaller than the LP. Some of them lost that access, but only last year as a result of reinterpreted rules.”

    Fair enough. If you want to tell me that its about more than just the ballot access, that there is additional p.r. value in going after the LP ballot access that wouldn’t be available with any of the smaller parties, I’ll agree.

    But I’m not going to buy that a larger LP would make Goat Blood’s job easier.

    Some historical background: This was my first correspondence with the sun god, where I suggested he run in another party, NPA, or form his own party.

    5/5/2015
    Mr. Invictus,

    Thank you for your inquiry. As prudence dictates, I always research any potential Libertarian candidate in order to make a preliminary assessment of his or her compatibility with our platform and objectives. I’ve taken the liberty to review several of your public statements and videos.

    Unfortunately, your stated goals are wholly incompatible with our primary, unyielding philosophy: The Non-Agression Principle. The NAP, to which it is commonly referred, is a solemn pledge which all Libertarian candidates must make, per our constitution. It states, “I hereby certify that I do not believe in or advocate the initiation of force as a means of achieving political or social goals.”

    Your declaration of a holy war, and your calls for human culling, clearly violate this tenet. They are, in fact, the antithesis of our core beliefs. Therefore, the Libertarian Party of Florida would be constitutionally-prohibited from certifying you as a candidate.

    Having said that, neither the Republican or Democratic Parties require such an oath from their candidates, so you would likely be eligible to run within either of those two parties. You also have the option of running for Senate as a No Party Affiliation (NPA) candidate.

    A third option would be to form a new political party, perhaps founded upon the principles of Thelema. I personally believe that would be your most viable and proper choice. You can do so by contacting the Florida Department of State, Division of Elections.

    Sincerely,

    Adrian Wyllie

    Mr. Wyllie,

    I find your response disconcerting, to say the least. It is deeply unsettling to think that a self-avowed Libertarian would stoop so low as to attack the religion of a potential candidate. The intelligent, not to mention the polite, thing to do upon receipt of my letter would have been to call me and ask for clarification on my political position. I did, after all, write you in friendship and give you my personal phone number. Certainly an act of such gross indecency was the regrettable result of an ill-tempered moment. I am willing to assume that you had a temporary lapse in manners that was unbefitting a man who holds himself out as a leader in the Party and who is running for State Chair.

    You cannot hide behind the Non-Aggression Principle and use it as a banner for your cowardice and your intolerance for non-Christian religions. The NAP is based upon philosophical concepts of property rights, not an ultra-leftist adoption of ahimsa. Of course I cannot expect you to understand the nuances of the history of Western Philosophy; but I and all members of the Libertarian Party of Florida should be able to expect that a self-professed leader of the Party should be man enough to recognize his own ignorance and not make a fool of himself by arguing Philosophy to one with a degree in Philosophy.

    In any event, I will not debase myself by defending my mystic or poetic statements. I will not have my Holy Scriptures nitpicked any more than would a Christian suffer public debates on the stoning of witches and homosexuals commanded by Leviticus. It is simply irrelevant to the coming election, and I would refer you to Article Six of the United States Constitution, which states that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

    The Libertarian Party must stand by all of the guarantees of the Constitution. America needs to be restored to a position of strength and integrity, as when the Founding Fathers caused the colonies to break away from the tyranny of the Crown. I would remind you that the United States was born of action against the corruption of government and leadership, not of bluster and grandstanding, of fake runs for Governor and hypocritical protests.

    Our Party is dangerous, and it should be. It is the Party that stands against the establishment, the Party that would end the stranglehold of the Republicans and Democrats on American politics, and the Party that would return this country to its former glory. You do not have to support my candidacy – but do not water down our country’s tradition with cheap talk.

    When you have the time to write a real response, I will gladly resume correspondence.

    Best Regards,

    Mr. Invictus,

    You and I are men of intellect and will. As such, I assumed that you’d appreciate a clear and direct response, rather than a meaningless ballet of dubious pleasantries.

    I have neither the time nor desire to debate philosophy with you. I am not swayed by your accusations of intolerance and ignorance. Spare me an additional slight by claiming that my prima facie assessment was improper, or by alluding that your declaration of holy war against the grey world of man was simply a poetic metaphor. Though I find your professed plans to be utterly unconscionable, I at least respect your courage for publicly proclaiming them. Don’t sully that by attempting to obfuscate them now.

    As I said previously, your genocidal objectives are universally incompatible with the Non-Aggression Principle, and Libertarianism as a whole. Therefore, you shall not be recognized as a Libertarian Party of Florida candidate. However, that does not preclude you from running for office under the banner of another political party, or without party affiliation.

    I trust this constitutes a real response. No further correspondence shall be necessary.

    Most Sincerely,

    Adrian Wyllie

    His entire claim of a “religious witch hunt” was based upon the single line in my initial email to him, where I suggested he start a new political party based upon the principles of his religion, Thelema.

    But I’m not going to buy that a larger LP would make Goat Blood’s job easier.

    Not what I said. I wrote that the logic of collective action does not make a larger party(numbers) a preventative mechanism. The best preventative mechanism is a foundational core jealously dedicated to libertarian principle. I mean, gez, simply look at Trump and the GOP if you a recent demonstration of the logic of collective action RE: major political parties.

  50. Anthony Dlugos

    “Our Party is dangerous, and it should be. It is the Party that stands against the establishment…”

    Sounds eerily familiar.

    Damn, this guy is good. Note how deftly he uses our principles against us. Notice how positioning ourselves as some sort of radical departure from the status quo opens us up to this lunatic saying, “yea, me too” and at least forcing us into this ceaseless religious battle over who’s NAP-ier.

  51. Anthony Dlugos

    “I wrote that the logic of collective action does not make a larger party(numbers) a preventative mechanism…I mean, gez, simply look at Trump and the GOP if you a recent demonstration of the logic of collective action RE: major political parties.”

    Not 100% preventative, no. Raises the hurdle, though.

    Taking over the GOP required a billionaire with 40 years in the public eye and essentially 100% name recognition. There’s probably no more than a dozen people in this country with the capacity to pull that off.

    Look at how substantially embedded into our party this lunatic has become, and he’s a self-avowed fascist with a past not much better than a serial killer in political terms.

    A party perhaps no more than our current size would have made it damn near impossible for him to get anywhere.

    Erin Butler: I personally know one supporter of his and I won’t publically name them or what I’ve learned of them, for safety’s sake. I will say that anyone standing up against the goat fucker is brave and better be armed. He and all of his ilk are deranged and dangerous.

  53. Andy

    Unrelated question for Adrian Wylie: I followed your 2014 campaign for Governor of Florida online. I thought you did a good job as an LP candidate. I particularly liked the way you battled the state over the drivers license and REAL ID Act. Driving without a license and baiting the police to come and arrest you showed an amount of courage that most people lack. When they finally came and arrested you, what happened after that? Are you still fighting the drivers license battle or what? What is the current status of the case?

    I think Paul Stanton says it well:

    “No one should be surprised when someone actively calling for violence and subjugation against vulnerable people commits violence and subjugation against a vulnerable person. Those who are surprised should probably do some soul searching.”

  58. Ryan Ramsey

    Actually, I was also elected at convention. I have spent years dismantling far-right groups and I defended left libertarians as well. I opposed every motion to kick members out and invited James Weeks to join the LPF when Michigan kicked him out of the party.

    Why don’t we talk about your fugitive warrant from South Carolina Paul. Or the forgery conviction in Oregon. Or my favorite, the dog you tortured and killed with another man. Or the allegations of your involvement in pedophilia and child pornography you sick bastard. Shut you fat commie mouth. The LPF is fine, we just did not feel like carrying on the disgraced former chairman’s bizarre witch hunt against one guy.

  59. Ryan Ramsey

    Nice try helping your Republican publisher trash the Libertarian Party though.

    Did I mention I edited my story on the matter after a request by the attorney for the no longer named women?

    Retractions start coming out tomorrow.

  60. Andy

    “Why don’t we talk about your fugitive warrant from South Carolina Paul.”

    I know the story, and he does not have a warrant from South Carolina.

    “Or the forgery conviction in Oregon.”

    This happened way back in 2001. It is true, but it was a long time ago, and Paul has done very good work since then. He turned in a batch of petition signatures for the Libertarian Party of Ohio a few weeks ago that came back at a validity rate of 82%.

    “Or my favorite, the dog you tortured and killed with another man.”

    This never happened. I know the story, and Paul was not even a part of this story from the person who originated it. No evidence was ever presented that this even happened at all. Paul had nothing to do with this, fiction or not, and I think that the entire story is fiction (for one reason, the time frame that this event supposedly occurred changed multiple times).

    “Or the allegations of your involvement in pedophilia and child pornography you sick bastard.”

    Another lie.

    “Shut you fat commie mouth.”

    Paul is not a communist. He favors abolishing taxes, massive cuts in government spending (down to zero if possible), abolishing the Federal Reserve and fiat currency, and the right to keep and bear arms. These are not exactly communist beliefs. He may sometimes frame issues in a left leaning matter, or focus on issues of which some leftists advocate, or do outreach to people on the left, but this does not make him a communist.

    I have never heard of Ryan Ramsey. I don’t know if Ryan Ramsey is a real person or not (if he really was elected at an LP of FL convention, I suppose he is a real person, but I will have to check the convention results to confirm this), or if Ryan Ramsey has anything to do with any of the trolling that has gone on here at IPR over the years (if he is not a troll, it sounds like he may be repeating some talking points that have been posted by trolls here in the past), but whatever the case may be, get your facts straight.

    Many of the regulars here at IPR have either met me in person or seen me in person, so people know that I’m not some phony hiding behind fake names and an IP anonymizer.

    I know the facts surrounding the accusations put forth above by Mr. Ramsey, and I happen to know that most of these are false (see my comments above).

    I did a search on Ryan Ramsey, and I found out that he is a real person in the LP of Florida. I do find it odd that he was repeating talking point smears, most of which are not true, that have been posted by trolls using fake screen names and IP anonymizers over the years here at IPR, but maybe he just repeated things that he read that were posted by trolls that had not been deleted here, or mabye he is repeating things he’s heard from other people who read the troll posts.

    I guess Andi girl did not read Ryan Ramsey’s article https://libertarianheathen.com/2017/04/07/lpf-under-attack-by-adrian-wyllie-paul-stanton-and-antifa/ so here are some excerpts for all your enjoyment:

    1. “Tho only person who seems panicked at the idea of reconciliation and positive energy is Wyllie, who is not even an LPF member, and Commie Paul, who showed up out of nowhere last year and has been a corrosive influence ever since, slowly turning even his own campaign staff against him, to the point he is universally reviled by all but a handful of members, most of whom are new and just have not had the chance to get to know him, libertarians being pretty non-judgmental outside of the small, but loud, Cultural Marxist Camp. They are both working with a Republican Consultant owned publication with its head muckraker. Tell me again I was paranoid about outside forces manipulating the LPF.”

    2. “I have lost some votes on the EC, Stanton’s appointment for one. I knew this would be the result. I knew the second he could start disrupting the party and using his position to attack members he did not like, he would. He proved me right within a month. I just said, oh well, and went about my business. Stanton chose to call Adrian, and a reporter named Pauli Cannoli – AKA Paul Frankel, also with IPR. Augustus accused the LNC of behind the scenes collusion, and this was the first person to post the fake police report about Mr. Invictus. A short bit of research lent credibility to the theory. He writes under a fake name, because the former left wing Democrat was a Region Representative with the LNC. He is Commie Paul’s other head muckraker at IPR, look at the first headline he wrote when Stanton appeared last spring, like an SJW rabbit, right out of a hat – “Not the goat and Eugenics guy”! This, nearly a year after his repudiation of eugenics in a YouTube video widely circulated that is the center of the issue at hand. As the Democrats leaked E-mail laments, real newspapers wont run this garbage, but theres always a few scumbags like Powers and Pauli. If you thought that Commie Paul was not involved with ANTIFA, here is the punchline, Paul Frankel openly admits to being a member of the left wing terror group.”

    3. “Luckily for the party, everyone else voted for this amicable solution. The Chair was given the ability to take care of this without outside pressure or input last Sunday. The mediation will happen. We will not let outsiders like ANTIFA or Adrian Wyllie tell us what we can and cannot do. Augustus and Char-lez are reasonable men, and Randy Wiseman is universally respected in the LPF, and a professional mediator. The EC did not bow to Commie Paul or his henchmen within the party. We will not let the bigotry of Wyllie, or the SJW mental illness of Paul Stanton leave us blind to the Republican Consultants who run Independent Political Report. We won’t let IPR be an accomplice to the destruction and bankrupting of the LPF. We will be asking serious questions and rooting out corruption as part of the healing process. We expect a resolution any day now and this to be put in the past, whether the enemies of liberty like it or not.”

  65. Darcy G Richardson

    Andy is right. Paulie is a decent and admirably principled guy and has done far more for the cause of open politics in this country than all of his authoritarian, thuggish-sounding white nationalist critics combined, most of whom have never carried a petition in their lives.

    Florida Libertarians should be highly embarrassed that he’s being attacked in this sleazy manner.

  66. Thomas L. Knapp

    I can attest that Ryan Ramsey is a real person. I’ve met him. We’ve even done pretty well with each other on the mutual personal congeniality front despite our strongly opposed political viewpoints. But lately he seems intent on finding out how No More Mr. Nice Knapp feels. Makes me think he’s a masochist or something.

  67. Darcy G Richardson

    …and by a regional representative of the party, no less.

    Shameful, simply shameful.

    My comment at 4:52 was a follow-up to my post thirteen minutes earlier.

    Insofar as Tom Knapp’s post immediately following my original comment, I can only say — metaphorically, of course — “Bring in the Marines!”

    Save the LPF.

    One last point. Anybody who would suggest that IPR is dominated by “Republican consultants” out to destroy and bankrupt the Libertarian Party of Florida is beyond delusional. Way beyond…

    Note on Alexandra Brown:

    Yesterday, I received an update on the crowdfunding of her legal defense, in which she caved to Invictus’s threats and denounced her own article.

    I asked whether or not the crowdfunders (of which I was one) would get their money refunded and have so far received no response.

    Now the crowdfunding page has been deleted, so I have to at least tentatively assume that in addition to letting Invictus intimidate her with threats of malicious litigation, she’s also decided to rip off those who supported her against those threats.

  71. paulie Post author

    Thanks everyone. I would like to respond to Ramsey’s bullshit. Not sure if or when I will have enough time to address all the blatant lies and twisting of truth in his latest BS article.

    https://libertarianheathen.com/2017/04/11/meet-paul-frankel-editor-in-chief-at-ipr-antifa-terrorist-and-former-fugitivelnc-regional-alternate/

    For now let’s talk about Ryan Ramsey, Region 4 and Bradford County Chair of LPF. Ramsey is editor at “the Revolutionary Conservative” which I am guessing is derived from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conservative_Revolutionary_movement

    “Outraged by liberalism and egalitarianism, and rejecting the commercial culture of industrial and urban civilization, they advocated the destruction of the liberal order, by revolutionary means if necessary, in order to make way for the establishment of a new order, founded on conservative principles. The movement had a wide influence among many of Germany’s most gifted youth, universities, and middle classes.

    The term “Conservative Revolution” predates the First World War, but the writer Hugo von Hofmannsthal and the political theorist Edgar Julius Jung were instrumental in making this term an established concept of the Weimar period. Thomas Mann used the term to describe Friedrich Nietzsche, whose philosophy greatly influenced many of the thinkers associated with the movement.[1]

    Initially, Arthur Moeller van den Bruck was the dominant figure of the conservative revolution in the Weimar republic.[2] Rejecting reactionary conservatism, he proposed a new state, a ‘Third Reich’ which would unite all classes under authoritarian rule[3] based on a combination of the nationalism of the right and the socialism of the left.[4] Jung promoted a fascist version of Conservative Revolution from the 1920s to the 1930s, which like fascism, spoke of nations as being singular organic entities; attacked individualism while promoting militarism and war; promoted “total mobilization” of human and industrial resources; and promoting the productive power of modernity, similar to the futurism espoused by Italian Fascism.[5] While Carl Schmitt promoted anti-Semitic views, he claimed that he held no fondness towards the National Socialism of Adolf Hitler which he considered to be too vulgar.[6] Hermann Rauschning was typical of the Conservative Revolutionaries.[7] For Rauschning the Conservative Revolution “meant the prewar monarchic-Christian revolt against modernity that made a devil’s pact with Hitler during the Weimar period”.[8]”

    Carl Schmitt is cited specifically by Ryan Ramsey’s bosom buddy Augustus Invictus as a major influence on him in at least one of Alexandria Brown’s interviews with him. Invictus and Ramsey are working together on the Revolutionary Conservative with Invictus’ press secretary Raquel Okyay, who is also on the LPF exec comm.

    One of Ramsey’s facebook profiles says one of his jobs/occupations/chief hobbies is “Studied Adventures in knife fights with illegal immigrants. at Memory Hole”

    Here’s Rockin’ Ramsey rocking out to some tunes…

    See that Rock Against Communism flag? Against Communism…sounds good to me (contrary to what Ramsey would have you believe I am actually an anticommunist as well as an antifascist, and in fact I am a refugee from the USSR). Oh but wait…

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_Against_Communism

    Rock Against Communism (RAC) started out as series of political rock concerts in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s, and is also a name for the subsequent music genre.[1][2] Rock Against Communism lyrics typically feature anti-communist themes but can include white nationalist, white supremacist, and neo-fascist politics[3] as well.

    History[edit]
    The Rock Against Communism movement originated in the United Kingdom in late 1978 with far right activists associated with the National Front (NF).[4] It was intended to counter the Rock Against Racism organisation.[4] The first RAC concert was in Leeds, England in 1978, featuring the Nazi punk bands The Dentists and The Ventz.[5] RAC held one concert in 1979 and another in spring 1983, which was headlined by Skrewdriver, a white power rock band led by Ian Stuart Donaldson. After that, RAC concerts were held more often. They were often headlined by Skrewdriver and featured other white power bands, such as Skullhead and No Remorse. In the mid-1980s, summer concerts were often held at the Suffolk home of Edgar Griffin, a Conservative Party activist[6] and father of Nick Griffin, an NF organiser who later became the national chair of the British National Party. By the late 1980s, the RAC name had given way to the White Noise Club (another NF-based group), and later Blood and Honour, which was set up by Donaldson and his friend Nicky Crane when they fell out with the NF leadership.[4] As hardcore punk music became more popular in the 1990s and 2000s, many white power bands took on a more hardcore-influenced sound.

    https://www.adl.org/education/references/hate-symbols/rock-against-communism

    Rock Against Communism (RAC) is a euphemism used to refer to several types of white power/hate music (typically Oi! or hatecore punk). Despite its name, RAC more often than not contains no references to “Communism” at all, but focuses on racism and anti-Semitism. The term emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s, after rock music promoters in Great Britain put on a series of “Rock against Racism” concerts. In response, various white supremacist bands led by Ian Stuart and Skrewdriver held “Rock Against Communism” concerts. The term eventually became used as a euphemism for racist Oi! music and later also hatecore punk and some other styles of hate music.

    Those who use the term RAC often do so as a way to camouflage the true nature of the racist music, because the term does not make explicit the music’s racist nature. Thus the acronym RAC is often used to describe hate music offered for sale on on-line auction sites, instead of more explicit labels that might cause site administrators to remove the item.

    Ramsey plays with a self-described RAC band called Lovecrime.

    …and that folks is what is taking over the LPF.

  72. paulie Post author

    Now in light of that let us once again consider…

    Alexandria Brown

    Mr. Invictus is a member of the alt-right community and a former member of a group called “National Socialist Movement.” I interviewed him twice when I was doing some academic research on the appropriation of Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophical rhetoric by the Third Reich, and was seeking to compare Nietzsche to confirmed Nazi political philosopher, Carl Schmitt, by whom I knew Mr. Invictus was influenced. I did not at that time know the extent of his theoretical and political entanglement with fascism.

    I don’t know if Invictus’ membership in NSM is “former” but he did address the group as a speaker recently; I believe within the last year and certainly within the last two. It’s far from the only white power gathering or podcast he has addressed.

    Paul Stanton:

    One would think that issuing a positive press release about a neo-nazi (who’s calling for violence against Muslims) would be a poor idea, especially when he’s in the news for allegations of rape and domestic violence – and during an escalation of the war in Syria.

    Anonymous LPF Insider:

    Raquel Okyay, is press secretary for Invictus, and is a voting member of the LPF executive committee.

    Ryan Ramsey is a close Invictus confidant and alleged member of white supremacy and neo-nazi groups. He is also a voting member of the LPF executive committee.

    […]

    There other members who have close ties to Invictus, and are staunch supporters of his. The remaining members who oppose him are afraid to openly challenge him. Some have privately said they are afraid for their own safety.

    Knowing that, it’s not surprising that they keep voting to appease him.

    http://lpf.org/party/leadership/

    https://www.facebook.com/augustus.invictus.3/videos/424491321217302/

    Allegedly this video contains threats against two unnamed individuals and Paul Stanton. I haven’t watched it but those of you who care to do so can confirm or deny the threats. Former LP national executive director Shane Cory says he watched the video and his assessment is “No direct threats, just hyperbolic statements.” Other opinions welcome in comments.

    One LPF member on FB in response:

    I personally know one supporter of his [Invictus -p] and I won’t publically name them or what I’ve learned of them, for safety’s sake. I will say that anyone standing up against the goat fucker is brave and better be armed. He and all of his ilk are deranged and dangerous.

    Adrian Wyllie:

    The video of Augustus Invictus’ appearance on the podcast “Sunshine Fascists” has been removed from YouTube, so I’m uploading it here. This video was originally uploaded to YouTube on April 3, 2017 by one of the show hosts, and was deleted on either April 4th or 5th, 2017.

    Here’s here’s another mirror site to view or download the podcast: http://bit.ly/2p0UrSL

    The video allegedly includes panel participants discussing killing LGBT individuals, Jews and Muslims. Invictus is no stranger to such appearances, having addressed the National Socialist Movement (of which he has allegedly been a member), numerous white nationalist radio shows and podcasts, etc.

    The “retraction” note from her that I saw yesterday did not contradict anything she said previously. I’ll upload it shortly.

    She has not admitted her role in any “plot” as Invictus claimed to me yesterday. In the letter below she says she has no compelling reason to doubt Ms. Rice’s claims, but qualifies that she has no personal knowledge of the facts either. Nothing she says here is a contradiction of anything she said before, as far as I can see. She is also clearly being intimidated by his lawsuit threats.

    I read the letter a few times just to make sure, and it in no ways admits to any “plot” or says that the allegations against Invictus are false in any way.

  74. paulie Post author

    Here’s Ramsey again.

    Note the typical white power skinhead tattoos. Now granted maybe you could say that’s stuff he used to believe but no longer does but he still calls the music he plays “RAC” (see above for context) and prominently displays RAC flags at home and on stage. Given his past he knows full well the significance of that just as Invictus and Ramsey would know full well what “Revolutionary Conservative” implies, especially given the influence Carl Schmitt has over Invictus philosophically/ideologically.

    Also, it doesn’t seem that he has covered that tattoos up or grown his hair out to hide them, either.

  75. paulie Post author

    Speaking of fascists, Augustus Invictus wrote me yesterday. He said it was private, although I did not agree to any such condition, but I’ll generally respect the request (pending further developments). However I think I can provide this very short quote ….

    You can feel free to call me a neo-Nazi and a genocidal maniac all you want.

    I think I will take him up on that.

    Now I need to go to work as this is all a distraction but hopefully will have enough energy when I get back from work to write an article in response to Ramsey and his bullshit about me, IPR, Warren, LPNV, etc.

  76. Thomas L. Knapp

    “Also, it doesn’t seem that [Ryan Ramsey] has covered that tattoos up or grown his hair out to hide them, either.”

    Last time I saw him he had hair that obscured his head ink, and wore clothing (a suit, IIRC) that covered most of his other ink. Tattoos are expensive to have removed (or covered with new tattoos), so unless proudly displayed, I would not consider them evidence of his current beliefs in and of themselves. In conjunction with other stuff, sure.

  77. dL

    In conjunction with other stuff, sure.

    Like his current blog posts…basically a right-wing knock-off of the very thing he incessantly whines about.Nothing revolutionary about it…more like a cheap imitation.

  78. paulie Post author

    TLK,

    Fair enough, but that’s why I provided the other context. I don’t know how recent the pictures above are but the first few are the among first things you see on his FB which he uses regularly, and he still says he is RAC and so on.

    Invictus campaigned at NSM and “Rock Against Communism” events during his Senate campaign. His articles about eugenics, “fear of the Jews” etc were posted on his US Senate campaign site, by him. His “white genocide” youtube video on his channel is recent. His podcasts like “Red Ice” and “Sunshine Fascists” are all recent. He called Ezra Pound “my fellow American fascist” in late 2013. When he went to Portland, during his Senate campaign, he had a prominent white nationalist tattoo the fasces on his back and exhorted his followers to stick together like the fasces against the antifa. All of that is recent. Their NEW publication, started I believe this year, is called the Revolutionary Conservative. See above as to what that implies, which Invictus would full well know because of him being influenced by prominent early 20th century Revolutionary Conservative Carl Schmitt.

    Add all of that up together and … if these guys stopped being nazis, racists, fascists etc exactly when did that happen?

    “Like his current blog posts…basically a right-wing knock-off of the very thing he incessantly whines about.Nothing revolutionary about it…more like a cheap imitation.”

    hackneyed, yes.

    “Fair enough, but that’s why I provided the other context.”

    Yes, I know. I was responding specifically to your “Also, it doesn’t seem that he has covered that tattoos up or grown his hair out to hide them, either.”

    Gotcha. Meanwhile, there’s a blog that is “dedicated” to me by some trolls, who also made similar blogs that have been taken down for TOS violations dedicated to Andy Jacobs and Tom Knapp. I don’t want to link this piece of garbage but you can get an idea of what kind of crap gets posted there from the names of their articles:

    Who runs this blog? I like your style and I’m doing some investigating into this guy and Frankel and a possible pedophile ring in the LP. Please email me at the address below if you can/want to help.

    Someone with the email address “tankgirl88” and the same IP address as Ryan Ramsey also commented at IPR recently:

    I am not a fan of many of Invictus’ ideas either, but damn man let it go. The press release stated he advocates for “state-sponsored murder”, that in itself is enough to issue a retraction. It’s not a true statement, even if he did say something on his website about a eugenics program – that is not the same thing as state-sponsored murder. The LPF EC didn’t want to risk emptying out the treasury over this stupid bullshit. Get over it. Show up as a delegate to the convention and help elect new people if you think the EC made a mistake and stop bringing more negative attention by publishing these shitty hit pieces.

    “88” could be her year of birth or something else, but among racist skinheads it usually stands for Heil Hitler (because H is the 8th letter of the alphabet) or the 88 precepts of neo-nazi David Lane.

    So it appears that Liz AKA TankGirl88 is probably Ryan Ramsey’s wife, girlfriend, family member or friend, or perhaps Ramsey himself posting “in drag”. She “likes the style” of a neo-nazi troll website and is doing an “investigation” into “a possible pedophile ring in the LP.” That same night Ryan Ramsey publishes a piece that states or implies that I have something to do with pedophilia, with zero evidence (I don’t). Augustus Invictus is reportedly also going around telling people that I am a pedophile.

    This may well be projection. I understand it Augustus starting dating Victoria when she was 17 and has written an account about raping a 14-year old girl in Mexico that he self categorized as nonfiction. He has reportedly also at the very least tried to hook up with other high school aged girls. I, on the other hand, have not had sex with anyone who was underage, to the best of my knowledge, since I have been over 18 myself. I did have sex with lots of underage girls… when I was an underage boy myself. Never since, unless someone was lying about their age.

    Comment in moderation at the article in the pingback:

    Thanks for the links to IPR. One small correction, Augustus Invictus (birth name Austin Gillespie – I have been given to understand he has had it legally changed) is no longer a member of the Libertarian Party.

    Unfortunately, those of us who worked to get the party to give him the boot did not succeed, but fortunately he chose to leave on his own. Unfortunately, some of his friends still remain, so there is more work to be done to remove this cancer from the LP.
