Libertas Sister organisation Annual Forum on Public Safety in Europe and North America

Between 2005 and 2007, Ganley’s organisation, Rivada Networks, sponsored the Annual Forum on Public Safety in Europe and North America at my alma mater, the University of Limerick, where Ganley is a director on the University of Limerick Foundation Board. The forum brings together various “policymakers, political and military leaders” to discuss, among other things, “important public safety matters, such as crisis management, interoperability and border security”.

This is Libertas's sister organisation, that is "the fruit of the same tree" so to speak.
I have posted here before about the fact that the Forum on Public safety is concerned with military and civil powers becoming closer together.

No doubt a Libertas policy too!

The forum brough USmilitrary figures and politicians as well as Irish politians and European police leader together to discuss such issues as

Cooperation between the Civil and Military Power: Where can we improve current best practices?

Radicalization: Idea exchange on how we learn what makes the terrorist tick, and what influences the young idealist on the fence to go “radical”. Further, what options do we give him or her to encourage them to make the
right decision?

North America and Europe: Enhancing information exchange

Global Supply Chain Security: How do we ensure secure and efficient passage of goods and services across the globe, at ports and through other channels?

Borders: How is border security integral to public safety and what can we do to improve border security?

‘THE WESTERN ALLIANCE’: Strengthening old ties. The stress points - the strong points - the way ahead.


How can we reconcile potentially competing leadership, missions and resources among first responders, agencies and governments to deliver the most effective management of crises?

Federal vs State/local challenges in the US and local/national vs EU challenges in Europe

Memoirs of a Ganley rapporteur, albeit confidential - The Irish Times - Tue, Dec 16, 2008

These conferences follows the lines of several others that Declan Ganley has hosted over the years. See point five from below "

Make the market: if no one believes in your idea, organise a conference to construct the debate your product needs


  1. Invest heavily in pre-start-up research and diligence of potential entrepreneurial opportunities rather than trying to plug holes and gaps after the fact.
  2. As an entrepreneur, attempt to surround yourself with a management team of people who are smarter than you are.
  3. Making big money is the by-product of passion for something else, it is rarely the result of merely wanting to make money.
  4. The laws of political astuteness and patronage: make friends in high places, and influence people; don’t be afraid to tackle academics and politicians alike.
  5. Make the market: if no one believes in your idea, organise a conference to construct the debate your product needs.
  6. There is no limit to the value of lateral thinking in an entrepreneurial situation
  7. Don’t forget who you are (or who you’d like to project yourself as). In this case Irish identity is Ganley’s heartfelt USP and has helped him in the States.
  8. Lead from the front, as Ganley did in New Orleans, and never forget that your team is watching.
  9. It is possible to have several different businesses on the go at once but don’t forget that you’ll be working 24/7 to achieve your objectives, and some of them will fail.
  10. Don’t neglect your principles. Ganley is firmly of the belief that honour and integrity precede money making – spoken like a true military man with Catholic underpinnings.

Libertas attempt to silence those annoying questions on new site

here Libertas are attempting to answer the questions raised by Poeple Korps and the media over their leader's past. they fail to answer honestly in most regards but I will be adding a complete breakdown over the coming days.

Primetime show on Declan Ganley

Rte show investigates Declan Ganley's claims about his past see full show below,null,230

David Cochrane owner was/is employee of US Defense contractor

Naoise Nunn former communications officer of Libertas confirms that Libertas employees were in fact being paid by US Defence contractor Rivada

Nunn said David Cochrane, campaign director of Libertas, was an employee of Rivada who operated the Libertas website during 2007. Ganley and McGuirk subsequently disputed Nunn's version of what he, Nunn, and Cochrane, had done in 2007.
Irish Times Thursday, June 19, 2008

In the above article Libertas claim all their funding came from small donors see below for the lies that unfolded later

Ganley fails to provide clarity on Libertas loan

Post on that proved Ganley tried to hide the fact that his company Rivada were funding Libertas

Having said that Rivada never funded Libertas The Times today quote Ganley sa
In a letter to the commission on July 7th, Mr Ganley said that "under the definitions of the elector acts, Rivada Networks Ltd made no donations to Libertas".

Mr Nunn was the "responsible person" in Libertas in relation to the entity's obligations to the commission.

Does that mean they did or they did'nt fund Libertas?

"Libertas activist Naoise Nunn told The Irish Times he was an employee of Rivada who did work for Libertas at the direction of Mr Ganley. Mr Ganley has told the commission that the employees of Rivada who worked on the Libertas campaign did so in a voluntary capacity.

Or does it mean that Nunn's wages paid by Rivada were not covered by the act. Would that be the case?

Well if Nunn was an employee under orders the buck would stop with Libertas and Ganley, if Nunn worked full time he was hardly volunteering "in his spare time"

Here is the link a Libertas resource tool? is a popular political discussion site. It is "owned " by Libertas employee and activist David Cochrane. David is a university graduate who has been working for Declan Ganley's Rivada and/or Libertas for several years. Whereas is supposed to be a place where members can discuss Irish political issues, news etc It has increasingly also been used by a cadre of Libertas employees working as mods to steer debates and threads so they can not harm Declan Ganley or question his flawed pedigree.
Their interventions have resulted in all anti Libertas posters being abused and banned.
People Korps has been one of many posters who have discussed Declan Ganley's involvement in Russia in the early 1990s, his business affairs esp in Iraq and in Albania and his political hard right leanings, philosophy and friends.
