Show Summary: Under the pressures of the unprecedented-in-our-life-time COVID19 crisis, even libertarians are floundering philosophically. Some are willing to tolerate the wholesale “temporary” suspension of our inalienable rights. Others indeed relish the totalitarian response, because it gives them a (false) sense of safety. On this show Natalie Fawn Danelishen provides a critique of the governmental response to the crisis on the basis of Libertarian theory, masks, and the madness! Natalie  offers details on how property rights and free markets could guide response to our current challenges, better than any government can or will.   About the Guest:  Natalie Fawn Danelishen is a graphic artist, libertarian activist, and member of the Mises Institute.   About the Host: Johnny “Rocket” Adams was the creator and host of “The Johnny Rocket Launch Pad – Libertarian Rock n’ Roll Experience” and now “BLAST OFF with Johnny Rocket!” He’s also a musician, graphic artist, author, and former Chief Warrant Officer.

Back stateside, Johnny immersed himself in the classic works of Murray Rothbard, Henry Hazlitt, and Ludwig von Mises. From there the AnCap known as “Johnny Rocket” was born. Speaking truth to power from your cell phone tower, Johnny digests the philosophy of liberty and brings them to the man on the street on a weekly basis. Johnny Rocket was also the front-man of the rockabilly group “Hot Roddin’ Romeos” and puts pencil to paper with the critically acclaimed comic series “The Liberty Force.” New York Times best-selling author and podcast host Tom Woods calls Johnny Rocket “one of the most entertaining figures in the liberty movement.”   About the Co-Host: Raylene Lightheart is an activist in the libertarian movement.  She is a dedicated wife and homeschool mom of five.  She is passionate about self-ownership, free association community, and unfettered liberty.  Raylene is the director of marketing and sales of Launchpad Media Group.

Show Summary: Spike Cohen is a podcaster who runs Muddied Waters Media and is an ally of performance artist Vermin Supreme, who ran for the Libertarian Party’s Presidential nomination in 2020. As a matter of fact, The Libertarian National Convention has selected Spike Cohen to be their Vice-Presidential nominee. He will be joining the ticket with Jo Jorgensen as she leads the Libertarian Party for the 2020 Election. Spike understands that the Libertarian Party’s Platform is an attempt to compromise between different positions and he completely respects that, but as an individual candidate, his policy is anarchy.

Show Summary: How can you tell if someone running for office will do a good job? How can you ensure that he or she will improve your party, not get your party further into debt? How can you figure out whether this candidate is going to uphold libertarian principles and take a thoughtful, incremental approach to your party’s problems? Today we ask the hard questions, with the up and coming candidate for LNC chair, Jacob Lamont. Is he principled? Is he honest? We think so. This show you cannot miss! About the Guest: Jacob Lamont has been an activist for over 26 years and became officially active in the libertarian party in 2014. Prior to that, he was resistant to joining any groups or political organizations due to his fierce individualistic nature. Having been homeschooled and raised in a home with libertarian ideals, Jacob’s evolution into a politically active libertarian was an organic extension of his upbringing. Shortly after joining the libertarian party he was elected to the region one director position and still holds that position to this day. In 2015 he ran for office in the 42nd District of Washington State representative. Currently he is a member of several political discussion groups in his county; one secular and the other conservative. He spends a lot of time focusing on outreach efforts to explain libertarian ideology and in organizing libertarian movements. He holds the Libertarian Statement of Principles close to his heart and knows that it is the underpinning of the libertarian party. He believes that it is The Statement of Principles that set us apart from any other political group.   About the Host: Johnny “Rocket” Adams was the creator and host of “The Johnny Rocket Launch Pad – Libertarian Rock n’ Roll Experience” and now “BLAST OFF with Johnny Rocket!” He’s also a musician, graphic artist, author, and former Chief Warrant Officer.

Show Summary: Can Zoning protect and enhance property values? Does zoning prevent the mixing of incompatible land? We’re told, without zoning of neighborhoods and cities, they would be crowded and chaotic. Would there be brothels near preschools and skyscrapers in your neighborhood? Is this all untrue?

Show Summary: In this episode of Blast Off! We introduce Jordon Johnson from the podcast “Veterans for Voluntaryism”, and how libertarianism has snuck its way into the military, and how a large number of veterans are steering far away from what they thought their views were, right into the liberty movement. In this episode, we discuss how a U. S Army veteran became an Anarcho-Capitalist, and the experiences that shaped his position of what freedom really is… About the Guest:   Jordan Johnson, from Iowa, is one of the three hosts of Veterans 4 Voluntaryism and an Army veteran of 8 years. Serving time in the infantry, he has deployed to Afghanistan in 2010 and saw numerous fallacies involving our overreaching foreign policy. During his tenure in field artillery and, finally recruiting, he witnessed the bureaucratic waste and inefficiency of the federal government and gave up his military career. Today, he lives a peaceful life with his wife of 10 years and his loyal Labrador, Khaleesy, while dedicating his life to Jesus and liberty. Veterans for Voluntaryism is group of veterans that adopted a liberty-focused mindset during their time in the military. They cover topics such as voluntaryism, anarcho-capitalism, minarchism, libertarianism, and more.

Show Summary: Johnny is alive and back stronger than ever!! Recorded before his absence, Johnny and Raylene talk to Marc Clair of the Lions of Liberty podcast about their documentary, “…And Live Free!” - Marc confides what he would most like to be remembered for, how Lions of Liberty was started, and why he tries to avoid all of the ceaseless libertarian drama. Then Johnny turns the tables on Marc and gives him the “Rocket Fire - Harvard Edition” treatment, where Marc really struggles to answer Johnny’s questions. And lastly, Raylene brings the sandwiches. About the Guest: After being inspired by the 2008 Presidential campaign of Ron Paul, Marc co-founded the Lions of Liberty brand and website with three of his fellow Penn State alumni.

  We talk about the Matthew McConaughey movie, "Gold" with Jared Wall of Breaking Liberty.  He was our guest recently for the Breaking Bad movie, “El Camino” and he suggested this one while we were doing that episode.  “Gold” is an unbelievable story based on true events, and it gets more fantastical at every turn, and even includes helicopter rides.  This was a lot of fun to talk about.   See you next week as we discuss the Netflix documentary about kratom called “A Leaf of Faith” with John Bush of Brave Botanicals.   Show Notes:  http://www.lastnighters.com/107   Look for it at the Launch Pad Media, where they are always launching new ideas in your direction: http://www.thelaunchpadmedia.com    Reel Unconventional Film Analysis.   We use movies as a starting point for people who may not be familiar with this way of thinking.    The point is to show what anarchy actually is with instances that are presented in film.   SUBSCRIBE, RATE AND REVIEW ON APPLE PODCASTS (or iTUNES)

We invite back Rachel Kennerly of "Cannabis Heals Me" to discuss M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village".  The movie has the expected twist that has become one of Shyamalan's tropes, however, I think the twist we will have on this will be even better.   The premise of the movie will give us plenty of fodder for discussion as we get into instilling fear to maintain control as the benevolent overseers infantilize the populace for their own good, the greater good - or do they?   Join us next week as Scott Morrison returns to talk about "Enemy at the Gates".   Show Notes:  http://www.lastnighters.com/105   Look for it at the Launch Pad Media, where they are always launching new ideas in your direction: http://www.thelaunchpadmedia.com    Reel Unconventional Film Analysis.   We use movies as a starting point for people who may not be familiar with this way of thinking.    The point is to show what anarchy actually is with instances that are presented in film.   SUBSCRIBE, RATE AND REVIEW ON APPLE PODCASTS (or iTUNES)
