What a 1000-Point Drop In The Stock Market Means To You

This morning, the stock market opened nearly a thousand points below Friday's close. It's the largest dip in over a year, and ate up all the gains for 2020. It shouldn't be a surprise. When a viral illness essentially shuts down the second largest market in the world, the market suffers. The fun has only just begun. Our economy teeters on the edge of a knife. All it needs is a little push. Since the coronavirus is more like a huge shove, perhaps it's the catalyst that will bring it all...


Jason's Takeaway from the Democratic Debates, Plus Why Poverty in America is So Stubborn

Over the past few weeks, we've talked a lot about the future of the liberty movement. Today, we're approaching the subject from a slightly different angle. But first, let's talk about the most recent Democratic debate. It's increasingly looking like a two-horse race. Bernie Sanders has been pacing the field for a while now, and it's pretty clear at this point. He's the people's choice. However, money talks. And Mike Bloomberg has a TON of money. The DNC clearly want to avoid a Bernie Sanders...


You Can't Get Rich By Demand: How to Stay Broke and Unhappy

Hospital and healthcare workers across the US say that their industry exploits them and leaves them often unable to afford healthcare, despite working in the sector. As is typically the case, they've accepted the lie that their best course of action is striking. That is, unless hospitals meet their demands. They're asking for $15/hour minimum wages, better facilities, and a bunch of other stuff. Here's the problem: you can't get rich by demanding that people give you more money. They might...


The Truth About Wealth

Last week's episode caused quite a ruckus. (If you haven't listened to it yet, go do it now. It's called The Future of the Liberty Movement. Then come back to this one.) After listening to the feedback from some of you guys, we realized we need to go a little deeper. Libertarians want to change the world. They have all sorts of ideas that would improve people's lives. And they feel like if they could just come up with the right arguments, they could convert anyone. But the problem is, that's...


You're Being Lied To: Proof Coronavirus Pandemic Is A Hoax

Something doesn't add up. Just how bad is the coronavirus?? The media is doing their usual thing, where they dial up the hysteria as much as possible. If you listen to them, we're staring down the barrel of an unprecedented catastrophe. They're throwing around "PANDEMIC!" like it's going out of style. But the official numbers paint a far less calamitous picture. In a nation of literal billions, just over 1000 people have died. The symptoms seem akin to the flu, and nearly all the casualties...


The Future of the Liberty Movement

At the height of the Ron Paul era, the liberty movement was a force to be reckoned with. On a level playing field, he probably would've been the Republican nominee. But the liberty movement peaked in 2012. When Donald Trump burst onto the scene in 2015, he reappropriated all of the good doctor's momentum. And Rand Paul's miserable performance sealed the deal. So now what? If you consider yourself a liberty-minded person, it's time to wake up. Read the room. The liberty movement is stalling...


Greta Gets A TV Show!

The BBC's "science" unit announced they'll be producing a new TV show following the life of Greta Thunberg. Were you wondering when the BBC will announce their TV show about the life of Boyan Slat and the ocean plastic clean-up system he invented at 16? Well, I have three words for you: how dare you?! Good for Greta. She's proof that saying all the right things and pandering to all the right people leads to a life of rich rewards. Meanwhile, an all-time high of 90% of Americans say they're...


The Deck Is Stacked Against You: Here's How You Win.

The thing about people with power is they'll do anything to keep it. We like to tell ourselves happy stories about the ideals of democracy and the virtues of the law. However, the only laws that matter are the ones that are enforced; a law that can't be enforced is no law at all. So we can deduce that the only laws that are enforced are the ones that benefit those in power. Because the law is enforced by those in power, and they won't act against their own interests. Therefore, we discover...


US Distracted By Iowa Caucus As China Burns 100 Bodies A Day

In 2016, a Donald Trump-led populist uprising blindsided the GOP. And they lost control of their party because of it. The DNC has no interest in letting Bernie Sanders do the same thing. In fact, they'd rather nominate a weaker candidate and lose the election than risk losing control of their party. So it doesn't matter how popular Bernie gets. They'll do whatever they need to do to undermine him. Democrat voters are getting yet another hard lesson on the reality of "democracy": political...


Sanders & Yang Supporters Feel the Bern From the DNC

It's caucus season! Tonight, we find out who will be right. Jason says Bernie's support skews young. His voters talk a big game, so he polls well. But they won't show up to actually vote for him. Because they're lazy… which is why they're so enamored with the laziest man in politics. So he'll probably flop tonight, says Jason. Matt, on the other hand, says people underestimate Bernie's broad appeal. He's generally likable, in a grouchy old man sort of way. And lots of people see him as a...


The Myth of American Poverty

America currently has around $98 trillion in total household wealth. And, according to a study from the National Bureau Of Economic Research, the wealthiest 20 percent of the country owns 90 percent of that wealth. However, is that a bad thing? Bernie Sanders thinks so, of course. He says it's a sign of the injustice of the American economy. But there's nothing wrong with a fraction of people owning most of the wealth. As long as they earned it. And that's the key point right there. No one...


Conspiracy vs Reality: When The Lines Get Blurred

Have you been paying attention lately? If so, you've watched the media teach a master class on propaganda. Russiagate was the silly conspiracy theory that dominated the news since 2016. It taught us all a valuable lesson. The corporate press is in the business of clickbait and manufactured hysteria. They use it for two reasons. First, to boost their bottom line. And second, to amplify propaganda based in fear & manipulation to control your mind in order to further the interests of the...


Bolton Drops Bombshell In Shameless Self-Promotion

First things first. If you're on Twitter, you probably saw yesterday that I stirred up some controversy with my tweets about Kobe Bryant. Nobody understood what I was saying, so I clarified my position on the show today. Kobe's tragic death was the big news of the weekend, but today everyone was abuzz about the release of a new book. You see, the DC Beltway in the post-Russiagate world is a land of unprecedented levels of shameless grifting. American politics has always been a honeypot for...


PANDEMIC!!! Dozens Die As Health Experts Warn That 65 Million More Could Be Next

The corporate press is in the business of manufacturing hysteria and profiting from clickbait. Their business model demands it, because their incentives demand it. This is doubly true in the internet age. So many things are fighting for your attention around the clock. It's getting harder & harder for each outlet to stand out from the crowd. That's why you need to view the narrative surrounding this Chinese coronavirus "pandemic" through a very skeptical lens. Words like "PANDEMIC" and...


Impeachment Theater Continues… And More Stuff You'll Love :)

When Donald Trump first announced his run for president way back in 2015, everyone laughed at the idea of a "reality TV show president." Well, now the joke's on them. Because this whole impeachment charade is just a silly reality TV show, with dumber, older, uglier contestants. We touched on it briefly on today's show. Then we moved on to more interesting topics! Have you heard about Tulsi Gabbard's defamation lawsuit against Hillary Clinton? It tells us a lot about the state of the legal...


How to Hurt Black Americans and Have Them Love You For It

That title probably made you double take. If so, mission accomplished: I got your attention. Wealthy powerful Americans use all sorts of schemes to game the system. Michael Bloomberg is using one of the most profitable schemes of all. He spoke out against "racial income inequality" on Sunday at an African episcopal church in Tulsa, the day before MLK Jr Day. The former mayor announced his new economic plan for "incentivizing investment in underserved communities." But let's cut through the...


Who Will Control Your Wealth, Health and Happiness in 2020?

Over the course of the next year, you will be inundated with sales pitches. Your mind will be under attack from every political party. Every one of them wants you to believe that they alone hold the key to true freedom. They will promise you the moon. But they won't tell you what it costs. Because they don't want you to realize that you already hold the key to acquiring whatever degree of freedom you desire. In fact, it's a simple formula. Your freedom is directly tied to your wealth. And...


Forget Bernie & Warren, Nobody Watched Anyway

It's election season! Yet another Democratic primary debate. Yet another round of losers outdoing each other to see who can bankrupt America the fastest. Make up a problem in our society, and I guarantee Bernie Sanders has a government program to "solve" it! In fact, his latest scheme might be his most laughable. He recognizes that his Medicare-for-All scam would eliminate millions of insurance jobs. Not to worry! He'll just create a government re-education program to train them in new...


Trump Admits We Now Have a Mercenary Army

One of Donald Trump's most unique traits is the connection between his brain and his mouth. In other words, whatever enters his brain exits his mouth. People think he makes the presidency look bad. But I think it's a good thing. Here's why. He occupies an office with a long history of blatant lies & propaganda. For years, we've listened to presidents obscure the truth. They certainly have great sales pitches as they appeal to our patriotism. But they're lying all the same. Generations of...


Trouble On The Horizon: Central Banks Buy Gold While 40% Of US Companies Are Losing Money

The most important news events today are the ones that rarely make big headlines. Per Zero Hedge: "According to the latest numbers from the World Gold Council, central banks added 27.9 tons on a net-basis to official gold reserves in November. That brings the yearly total for 2018 with one month left to calculate to 570.2 tons, 11% higher than the same period in the previous year." Why are central banks investing in gold so aggressively? And what does it mean for you? I'm breaking it down...
