The Formula for Freedom in the 21st Century

These days, it seems like everybody fancies themselves valiant freedom fighters. They're filling our city streets with protests. They think they're "fighting the power" and "sticking it to the man." But the reality is, they're just revealing their own powerlessness. Freedom isn't something you fight for. It's not something you demand, or beg for, or even die for. Freedom is something you take. It's something you use. And it's always available to you. Lots of people will tell you that you don't have freedom because of some government program, or because of institutionalized racism, or because of welfare cliffs, or because of socialism. But they're wrong. If you don't have freedom, it's because you've chosen not to have freedom. You've enslaved your mind to narratives and systems and ideologies and interests whose lifeblood is your attention. They've persuaded you that your freedom depends upon someone else giving it to you. And you've chosen to believe them. But the funny thing about...

We Live In Interesting Times: How to Profit In a World On Fire

Join my private FB group American cities are on fire. Looters and rioters are burning churches and destroying businesses, big and small. Last night, they even tried to break through the Secret Service and into the White House. President Trump tweeted that the US will be designating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization. Then he escaped into a bunker for the night. The corporate press will tell you that white supremacists have co-opted otherwise innocent protests of police brutality. Some people will tell you this is a deep state plot. Others will say it's more Russian interference. Still others contend that China wants revenge for Trump pulling out of the WHO and lambasting their treatment of Hong Kong. Who knows which story is true? Perhaps all of them are. The one thing they all have in common, though, is that they're all about one thing: power. We're witnessing the collapse of the American empire. When empires collapse, they splinter. We know this from studying history. Power strugg...

We Live In Interesting Times: How to Profit In a World On Fire

Riot vs Rally: How to Use Influence the Right Way

Join my private FB group The people who change the world are the people who know how to manipulate emotions. That's not a value statement. It's a statement of fact. All humans make decisions emotionally, then justify them rationally. If you want to change WHAT people think, you must first understand HOW they think. Take the Minnesota riots, for example. That type of mass movement never starts from the ground up, because most people are followers. They're operating according to their conditioning. Someone told them that they're oppressed, and then convinced them that the best way to handle it is by burning down their neighborhood. It's an irrational, emotional response to a perceived problem. The problem may or may not be real. In either case, their response is a product of emotional programming. So the takeaway here is twofold. First, who is programming your emotions? And second, are you communicating effectively to your target audience? It doesn't matter if it's family, friends, cu...

Riot vs Rally: How to Use Influence the Right Way

America Returns to Normal: The Corporate Press Is Race-Baiting Once Again

Join my private FB group Remember 2016? At this point, it might as well be 1916. So much has happened since then. The world we live in now is different in so many ways. But apparently it's not too different. 2016 was the year where racial tension in modern America seemed to hit an all-time high. Black Lives Matter dominated every headline, and Colin Kaepernick was in the middle of nuking his NFL career. Every day brought a new case of police brutality, another officer-involved shooting, or more race riots tearing apart American cities. Every day, day after day, we were hammered with relentless, breathless coverage of a brewing race war. You would have been forgiven for thinking we were on the verge of an actual outright war. We probably were. Then those stories disappeared overnight. Suddenly nobody cared about Black Lives Matter anymore. The police brutality didn't stop. The shootings continued. But nobody talked about them. We all talked about Russian election interference for fou...

America Returns to Normal: The Corporate Press Is Race-Baiting Once Again

The Real Russia Scandal: Joe Biden's Quid Pro Quo

Join my private FB group Remember how the corporate press spent years breathlessly freaking out about Trump and Russia? It was the only story for month after month after month. All we heard was "quid pro quo." Then Robert Mueller released his report and it all sputtered out into nothing. Now Joe Biden is embroiled in his own quid pro quo scandal. And the corporate press don't want to touch it. They've abandoned any pretense of objectivity, because people care more about partisanship than factual news. Tune in today and we'll give you the details. Also, as a reminder, we're taking a long weekend for Memorial Day. So our next show will be next Wednesday. Enjoy the break and make the most of every day. We sure will be. ;)

The Real Russia Scandal: Joe Biden's Quid Pro Quo

Life is Full of Risks, So Stop Living In Fear

Join my private FB group A top WHO official says the second wave of the "pandemic" will be worse than the first. As if they can actually know that! Maybe it will be. Who knows. The problem is, that type of warning is being used to pressure governments into continuing these disastrous lockdown policies. Why? Because lockdowns are disastrous to the local economy, and they make people even more dependent on organizations like… the WHO. How convenient! Meanwhile, economists are now warning of an impending "tidal wave" of delinquent mortgages, surpassing even the Great Recession. That's hardly news. In fact, we've known for a long time that most Americans don't have $1000 to get them through an unexpected emergency. And record millions have lost their jobs due to lockdown over the past several weeks.So of course we will be seeing record numbers of late mortgage payments. All of this so-called "news" is really just fear porn. Scared people are much easier to control. Don't let yourself b...

Dave Rubin Joins Jason to Talk About His New Book: Don't Burn this Book

Join my private FB group If you haven't heard of Dave Rubin, you might be living under a rock. Dave is a good friend of the show, so it's been awesome watching his career take off over the past few years. We invited him on the show today because he just released his new book. InDon't Burn This Book: Thinking for Yourself in the Age of Unreason, Dave tells the story of his political evolution from progressive to classical liberal. In fact, his evolution is continuing even today. On this show, he introduces a new term he's trying on for size. We talked about a bunch of stuff, including how he wound up touring with Jordan Peterson, the crazy autoimmune condition that nearly forced him to shut down The Rubin Report, and how to navigate the pitfalls of daring to think and say unapproved things. And of course you can't have any conversation today without discussing the coronavirus. Dave also lives in Los Angeles. And he's getting fed up with the government here. It was bad enough when the...

Corona Madness Sets In

Click here to downloadthe free training mentioned in today's show. To start off today's show, we're gonna answer another listener question. This one is about time management. It's a good question because the vast majority of people wander their way through life. They have no purpose, and they don't have clear goals, so they have to drag themselves out of bed. And that means they're starting each dayreactingto the world. But we're winners. Winners don't react to the world. Winners impose their will upon the world.And that starts with owning your morning. So we'll run through some tips for starting your morning on the right foot. The bulk of our conversation today, however, is focused on the collapse of the lockdown narrative. Stop me if you've heard this before: a major newspaper published a clickbait headline. The internet freaked out. And an hour later they published a "clarification" that wasn't NEARLY as juicy of a headline. On Tuesday, the LA Times ran this headline:L.A. County ...

The Wealth Gap, Explained: Why the Rich Keep Getting Richer While Everyone Else Struggles

Join my private FB group! At the end of Friday's episode, one of our listeners sent us a Superchat on YouTube. We didn't have time to answer it then, so that's the first thing on the docket today. It was a good question. He hates his current job and wants to work for himself as a creative. But he doesn't know where to start, and he's struggling with his mindset. I'm sure that many of you can certainly relate. Wealthy, successful people run the world. The media and politicians (I repeat myself) will tell you that it's someone else's fault if you don't have the wealth or success that you want. And that's just nonsense. Now, to be clear: that doesn't mean there aren't bad actors who hurt other people. In fact, our entire financial system is set up to benefit those who already have money. You'll see no greater evidence of this than the fact that the stock market continues to climb as we set new record highs in unemployment. We have an article in the stack today that was posted by Zero H...
