"I get updates on the Ross Ulbricht trial exclusively from
The Liberty Beat and John Bush. Bush is dedicated to
truth about the key criminal trials that affect our freedom
-- which is perhaps why the mainstream media is looking away".
- Millie Thompson (Antonio Buehler's Attorney)
The Liberty Beat daily news service is raising money to provide you with full in-depth coverage of the Ross Ulbricht Trial with reporters on the ground during the entirety of the trial. Money we will raise will pay for travel costs, living expenses, advertising, graphic design, live blogging, and other activities supporting our coverage. We will also have writers and staff support back at in Central Texas writing stories and compiling information from the trial and coordinating advertising, outreach, and fundraising efforts.
Everything we raise above our goal will be split 50/50 between the Free Ross Legal Defense Fund and ongoing media and activist efforts to bring attention to Ross Ulbricht's ongoing legal battles.
Our coverage of the first week of the trial reached hundreds of thousands of people, providing them with breaking news and a perspective and depth of knowledge they won't find on other media outlets.
About the Case
John Bush is the only journalist I interviewed with
the first week of Ross' trial. I look forward to more
of his good work." - Lyn Ulbricht (Ross' Mother)
Ross William Ulbricht is facing federal charges associated with his alleged involvement with the Silk Road marketplace, a dark net website that allowed users to buy and sell illicit goods. The case has big implications not only for Ross and his family, but for the future of internet freedom as we know it. The State is attempting to hold Ross responsible for the actions of users on a website he created. If they are able to do this, it sets a dangerous precedent that other webmasters and site owners may be legally responsible for their user's behavior.
For those that know Ross Ulbricht, he is a good person and no criminal. He is now facing 30 years to life in prison. Regardless of the level of involvement he had in the building or administering the Silk Road website, he does not belong in a cage.
Also at stake is the age old battle of freedom vs. control. The Silk Road, Bitcoin, TOR, and encryption represent major threats to the powers that be and this trial is one of the first cases where all of these technologies are being brought in to the public spotlight. The outcome of this case will impact the way the public views these radical technologies.

"John, the work you are doing here is essential and heroic.

New Broadcasting Software...
In Beta Now
FeenPhone sounds much better than Skype, Mumble, TeamSpeak, Blink, Ventrilo, Google Hangouts, mobile phones or landlines.
FeenPhone is free open-source software that opens up a global world of possibilities for real-time high-quality voice media production, or simply conversation, over any distance.
Before FeenPhone, there has never been a way to do ultra-high-quality full-duplex decentralized talk communication in real time for free. FeenPhone does all this, and you can start using it today.
Freedom Feens co-host MK Lords doing a live show
on nationally syndicated radio over FeenPhone software.
FeenPhone - Free software for high-quality remote podcasting, radio and voiceover:
Why not just use Skype?
FeenPhone is superior in audio quality to Skype, Mumble, TeamSpeak, Blink, Ventrilo, Google Hangouts and phones. FeenPhone sounds crystal clear compared to all these programs/platforms.
And these programs aren't truly duplex; when one person speaks loudly, it cuts out the quieter person. This makes conversations sound unnatural. Even experienced radio hosts sometimes naturally talk over each other a little bit, especially at the end of one person speaking and the start of another person speaking. We built software that is full-duplex so the audience feels like they're in the same room with the people speaking, rather then having it feel like one person should say "Over…" when finished with a sentence. FeenPhone being true duplex makes it superior to other voice-over-Internet programs or phones in making conversations more conversational….more natural, less artificial.
Another way that true duplex makes FeenPhone better is in producing a show with remote co-hosts using music. With other voice-over-Internet programs, when the bumper music comes in, any host talking over it to lead in to, or out of, a talk segment gets squashed down by the music, and you can't easily hear what they're saying. With FeenPhone, both the music and the person speaking sound clear.
