    I’m glad to see that somebody took my suggestion from another thread and made this into an article.

    Good interview, but McAfee made a few inaccurate statements here, like saying that Ross Perot was only on 37 ballots, when in reality, Perot qualified for the ballot in all 50 states plus DC in 1992 and 1996.

    John McAfee is scheduled to be a guest on Richard C. Hoagland’s THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT radio show tonight, midnight to 2AM Pacific (3AM to 5AM Eastern).

    (As of a few minutes ago the guest for tonight was not on the website, but I confirmed this with both John McAfee’s campaign manager and with Richard C. Hoagland’s producer earlier today.)

    Hoagland gave a talk at the 2008 Libertarian National Convention titled “Do We Still Need NASA?”

    McAfee has been using his opportunities for publicity quite well so far.

    Good job!

    You are welcome Andy. Appreciated the tip.

    $9 million on ballot access?!? Sorry, I’m not buying it. The guy has an integrity issue.

    His comments and comparison to Perot were not at all studied. Perot didn’t spend a dime of his own money until he was polling at 25% and as Andy pointed out was on all 50 states.

    Perot had an army of retirees who would drive around in their RV’s and petition. Most were former employees who loved the guy.

    maybe the estimate was done by the advisor pushing for public works.

    Cut him a little slack on such technicalities.

    Ross Perot did hire paid petition circulators in both 1992 and 1996. He may have had some volunteers who gathered some signatures, but I know for a fact that paid petition circulators did most of the work. I know several people who worked on ballot access drives for Perot in both 1992 and 1996.

    I know that in 1996 in Texas, Perot petiitioners got paid $4 per signature plus motel and travel.

    Heard the 1AM to 2AM Pacific time interview with John. Richard C. Hoagland’s partner, Robin Falcov, filled in for Richard (as she has done a few times over the past couple of weeks). I continue to be favorably impressed with John McAfee’s articulation of Libertarian principles (as well as his, apparently well-informed concerns about the results of a cyber war — VERY similar to what I heard from Ted Koppel when he spoke at the U. Utah about his new book LIGHTS OUT — (other nations/terrorist organizations already have malware installed in our electrical grid control systems that could fry the entire network and leave us all without power for months — one result of which is likely starvation and riots, etc).

    I missed the first hour, but hope to get an mp3 of it and post relevant excerpts here.

    Joe, if such a cyber attack were to happen in the USA, do not be surprised if it is a false flag, as in do not be surprised if it is carried by people within our own government.

    The mass ammo stockpiles, drones, armored assualt vehicles, domestic spying, FEMA camps, and underground bunkers the government has are not for nothing.

    Andy, please elaborate. If the grid goes out, should we expect to be rounded up and put into FEMA camps, is that what you are suggesting?

    I think that it is a strong possibility, but whatever happens, under this scenario, the shit will hit the fan.

    On top of the admitted $19 trillion Federal debt there is $210 trillion in unfunded federal liabilities. Does it take a quadrillion to become insanity?

  13. Robert Capozzi Robert Capozzi March 3, 2016

    Andy, truly, I’m intrigued. McAfee seems most concerned about foreign cyber wars. You, OTOH, believe that the USG will launch one on its own people, but I’m not really sure why you think that.

    I’d think they stockpile all that stuff to quell riots or something, but my mind doesn’t really go to Apocalyptic places all that much.

    DFR, oh, here we completely agree. Mass insanity is demonstrably on the rise, particularly among the political class. That, however, doesn’t makes them a cult bent on creating an omnipotent state…that idea is more for paranoid groundlings.

    “Andy, truly, I’m intrigued. McAfee seems most concerned about foreign cyber wars. You, OTOH, believe that the USG will launch one on its own people, but I’m not really sure why you think that.”

    Because those in power will do anything they have to do to remain in power, and the unwashed masses are the single biggest continuing threat to their ability to do so. Therefore a significant portion of government expenditures will be allocated to buying them off to keep them from revolting and to being prepared to suppress them if they do revolt.

    Bingo! The people who run the government aren’t going to give up their positions of power without a fight, and they will fight as dirty as possible.

    “and the unwashed masses are the single biggest continuing threat to their ability to do so.”

    I’d say the unwashed masses who are awake to the fact that the government is extremely corrupt and full of crooks and liars are a threat. A lot of the public is not so much a threat, however, more of them could become a threat if enough seeds of discontent are planted and begin to flourish.

    “Therefore a significant portion of government expenditures will be allocated to buying them off to keep them from revolting and to being prepared to suppress them if they do revolt.”

    This is a big part of the reason for the welfare state and the proliferation of government jobs. People who get “goodies” from the government are less likely to revolt, or otherwise be a threat for the establishment ruling class.

    The video below illustrates what the ruling establishment class fears the most, and that is that if a critical mass of the public ever realizes that they greatly outnumber the establishment ruling class and their thug enforcers, and decide to stop complying with them, it will be game over for the establishment ruling class and their thug enforcers.
