Rank #1: The Deck Is Stacked Against You: Here's How You Win.

Podcast cover
Read more

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 that the only laws that matter are the laws that benefit those in power.

This means that the happy stories we tell ourselves are idealistic fiction. You know, the stories about government of, by, and for the people. Institutions that selflessly work for the good of all mankind.

Today, we present stories about a couple of these fairy tale systems.

In both cases, one group of people is profiting immensely from naive belief in the nobility of their institution. It's no coincidence that the people who are profiting are those with established power.

Thousands of Iowans showed up to vote in the Democrat Party caucus assuming (wrongly) that they were participating in a democratic process. Once again, they've discovered that the DNC won't hesitate to orchestrate the electoral process to screw Bernie Sanders.

Pete "Mayor Cheat" Buttigieg is the fortunate beneficiary of Bernie's bad luck.

Meanwhile, Florida sheriffs have been weaponizing occupational licensing to entrap would-be handymen. If it wasn't for the brave men and women of the badge, who would protect us from the grave existential threat of unlicensed handymen?! Heaven help us!

Above all, the institutions of modern society exist to serve the interests of whomever is in power. They'll tell us lots of stories about how they work for us. But they don't. They work for themselves.

Fairness and justice always take a backseat to the pursuit of self-interest. Life isn't fair. No one is  coming to save you.

In conclusion, here's the good news. You can't win the game until you know the rules. Now you know the rules. So go win.

Rank #2: US Distracted By Iowa Caucus As China Burns 100 Bodies A Day

Podcast cover
Read more

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 parties only care about the will of the voters when it aligns with the plans of the donor class.

Meanwhile, as Americans focus on the chaos in Iowa, China is ramping up their fight against the coronavirus. The CCP has placed the entire city of Wuhan under quarantine. They built an entire hospital in a week, but local healthcare infrastructure is still overwhelmed.

This isn't the type of response you get when you're dealing with the flu. China knows more than they're letting on.

Rank #4: 981: Ilhan Omar, American Debt, and Why Home Ownership is a Bad Investment

Podcast cover
Read more

The mad hatter is at it again. This time he's attacking Ilhan Omar, suggesting it might be best if she moved back to Somalia to fix her native country before attacking America for it's perceived shortcomings. The antics are both hysterical and sad.

And later, in the show...home ownership is bad and so is college. LOL.

Rank #5: President Trump Just Assassinated the John Wayne of the Middle East, feat. Michael Malice

Podcast cover
Read more

2020 is off with a bang! Quite literally.

First of all, we have a surprise guest for today's episode.

As soon as we started streaming our pre-show, the studio door opened and in walked none other than Michael Malice. Apparently Matt & Amy conspired behind my back to surprise me.

Michael joined us in a rousing discussion about the implications of Trump's targeted assassination of legendary Iranian general Qasem Soleimani.

Everyone else is discussing the potential global implications of his death, but I want to paint you a picture of who the man actually was and why Iranians held him in such high esteem.

You won't hear this caliber of conversation anywhere else.
