Johnny Rocket Launch Pad Episode #114: Macey Tomlin

 

Picture

Show Summary: This week we break out our black light, our Pink Floyd albums, and shoot the shit with Macey Tomlin! Psychedelic activist and anarcho-capitalists. Macey Tomlin talks to us about the healing properties of psychedelics, how psychedelics are inherently anarchist, and the reasons to also be responsible when using them.  Macey also talks to us how much safer psychedelics are, than their pharmaceutical counterparts.

About the Guest: Macey Tomlin is a psychedelic activist who has experimented with every well-known psychedelic for almost 7 years, including psilocybin mushrooms, LSD, and DMT. She has mostly worked with and promoted the use of psilocybin mushrooms, however, her focus has now turned in a different direction after personally having an extremely intense and life-altering experience with a very powerful plant known as Ayahuasca; the “mother” or “grandmother” of psychedelics.

Macey will be visiting Iquitos, Peru for a week in mid-January 2017 to take part in 5 more ayahuasca ceremonies. She will be returning to Peru after Anarchapulco 2017 (held in Acapulco, Mexico) to work as an apprentice under a shaman. She plans to open an Ayahuasca retreat in Acapulco, Mexico after her apprenticeship in Peru. With scientific research proving psychedelics actually cure mental ailments, we very well may see a rise in people turning away from the pharmaceutical companies and turning towards psychedelic treatment in the upcoming years.

Johnny Rocket Launch Pad Special #6: Electric libertyland

Picture

On today’s Electric Libertyland, Brian welcomes in a favorite of the liberty podcasting world, the one and only Johnny “Rocket” Adams, to resurrect the zombie corpse of “Rand Pauluses and Minuses  Trump’s statements on healthcare and chat a bit about the confirmation hearing for Gen. Mattis.

Before Johnny and Brian get down, Brian also takes a few snippets of Obama’s farewell speech to get the blood riled, and bathe in the egomania and race baiting that the soon-to-be-former president was so versed in.

Catch the boogie fever.

Discussed in this Episode:

Did 4Chan troll journalists & the Intelligence Community on Trump golden showers?

Rand opts in for Canadian Drug bill w/ Bernie,

Rand’s Obamacare replacement ideas

The tragedy of Rand’s soundly defeated proposal to balance the federal budget in 5 short years.

General Mattis hearings  for Defense Secretary confirmation

Johnny Rocket Launch Pad Episode #109: Lions Of Liberty (SPECIAL THANKSGIVING SHOW)

Picture

Show Summary On this episode of the Johnny Rocket Launch Pad – Johnny Adams, Heather Nixon, and Curt Nelson look for a little Thanksgiving meal, and crash the Lions Of Liberty’s party with Marc Clair, Brian McWilliams, and John Odermatt ! In this wacky and zany show you’ll hear:

  • The casts of both shows discuss the results of the 2016 election, and harken back to last year’s show to look at their predictions from a year ago.
  • A special guest appearance by a certain former Presidential candidate and his co-running mate.
  • The Lions of Liberty play a round of “Rocket Fire”, before…The tables get turned and the Launch Pad crew step into “The Cat’s Cradle!”
  • So…much…more

About the Guest(s) 

Marc Clair (Editor-in-chief)- An ardent believer in libertarian ideals for over a decade, Marc decided to thrust himself into writing for the cause after becoming inspired by the Presidential campaigns of Ron Paul.  In 2011, he helped to co-found the Lions Of Liberty with several like-minded friends from their college days at Penn State nearly a decade earlier.  When he’s not serving as writer and editor-in-chief of Lions Of Liberty, he is busy with a freelance career in television and running a karaoke business in Los Angeles, CA. Marc is also a contributing writer for sports and pop culture website Place to be Nation.

John Odermatt – John, otherwise known as Odie, developed an interest in politics and economics at a young age.  In 2007, John’s eyes were opened when a fellow contributor to this site, Marc Clair, introduced him to a unique Republican, Congressman Ron Paul.  Ever since then, a significant amount of his free time has been dedicated to reading and studying the ideals of liberty.  When John is not fervently defending liberty, he earns a living working in Project Controls for an engineering company.

Brian McWilliams – Brian McWilliams is a native Philadelphian currently living in Los Angeles. His passion and concern for liberty was realized during Ron Paul’s 2008 campaign, which shed light on the troubling initiatives our government was embracing that infringed on the tenets that the United States was founded upon.

Johnny Rocket Launch Pad Episode #108: Lily Tang Williams

Picture

Show Summary

She hates to see the country she loves, becoming more like the country she left. This week we are proud to feature 2016 Colorado Libertarian Nominee for U.S. Senate Lily Tang Williams! Lily comes on the show to discuss her experiences in China under Mao’s Regime, and how she found liberty in a little pocket sized constitution. Lily comes on the show to tell her story, and most importantly illustrates how communism and socialism cannot work. Let’s blast off- and rock some Liberty with Lily!

About the Guest

Lily Tang Williams is the Libertarian nominee for U.S. Senate in Colorado. The Libertarian Party of Colorado unanimously nominated Lily on March 12th 2016. Her name will be on the ballot this November.

Born before China’s Cultural Revolution in Sichuan province, the wild west of China, Lily was raised with her two brothers by illiterate working-class parents. She grew up under Mao’s regime, enduring poor living conditions; food rationing; Communist indoctrination; and political and social chaos. In this tumultuous environment, she quickly developed street smarts and compassion, as well as the values of perseverance and hard work.

Lily received her university law degree at Fudan University in Shanghai and was a faculty member of the law school for three years. She came to the U.S. in 1988 to earn a Master's degree at the University of Texas at Austin, School of Social Work.

Subsequently, Lily worked for corporations in Hong Kong and the U.S as a corporate executive. She then became a Colorado small business woman and entrepreneur in 2000.

Lily was nominated as a candidate by the Libertarian Party of Colorado in March of 2014 to run for the State of Representatives in District 44. She is the former state chair of the Libertarian Party of Colorado and currently State Director for Our America Initiative.

Lily is a grassroots activist and professional speaker. She has been outspoken promoting civil liberties, economic freedom, less intrusive government, and other policies that maximize personal freedom. She is an inspirational speaker to many people. Lily has been married to John Williams for 26 years. They have lived in Parker, Colorado for 17 years, with their children and German Shepherd Ajiao (which means 'cute and proud' in Mandarin). In addition to political activities, Lily takes care of family and business. She also enjoys traveling, cooking, music, soccer, poker and ping pong.
