Why News Doesn't Show This Biden Clip & Hilarious GameStop Theories | DIRECT MESSAGE

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks about the Joe Biden executive orders hypocrisy, the ridiculous coverage of the GamesStop stock insanity, and Brian Stelter’s ideas to keep us all safe from “Fox News lies." First off, Dave discusses a clip of Joe Biden where he called presidents who rely on executive orders dictators. Meanwhile, the GameStop short squeeze story is already getting the usual “blame Russia” treatment. Jimmy Kimmel made the baseless claim that “Russian disrupters” are possibly behind the Reddit community, while Newsweek tried desperately to link it to anti-Semitic right-wing extremist groups. Finally, Dave covers CNN calling for the reach of Fox News to be curtailed for contributing to divisive misinformation. Oh, the irony. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Ex Muslim Exposes The Reality of Islam In The West (Yasmine Mohammed Interview)

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Yasmine Mohammed (Author and Activist) about how she became an ex Muslim and the untold reality of Islam in the West. Yasmine grew up in a fundamentalist Muslim home in Canada. Despite living in a western country her childhood more closely resembled living under Sharia law in Saudi Arabia. She was forced to wear a hijab starting at age 9 and was later put into an arranged marriage. She left her husband and tried to regain control over her life. Yasmine had her awakening when she saw Sam Harris’s famous appearance with Ben Affleck on Real Time With Bill Maher. It was then that she knew she had a duty to tell the world about her experiences growing up Muslim in Canada. She also discusses her book “UNVEILED: How Western Liberals Empower Radical Islam”. Yasmine shares stories about her young students of the Zoomer generation and how she sees them as potentially being the end of “woke culture”. She also reveals why she thinks people in the West are being sold a lie by fetishizing the hijab through burkinis in Sports Illustrated, and Nike swoosh hijabs. The lie being that these things empower women, when in fact they oppress them. Yasmine also shares her surprise at how afraid a lot of westerners are to speak up, despite having their speech protected. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

How To Stop Your Loserthink Now & A Surprising Take On AOC (Scott Adams Interview)

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Scott Adams (creator of Dilbert, author of “Win Bigly”) about his new book “Loserthink” and many other topics. In addition to being a comic artist he is considered by some to be a political philosopher for his analysis of the persuasive ways of Donald Trump. He discusses “talent stacking”, the idea that you should focus on building a variety of complementary nonexpert skills as opposed to focusing on one particular skill. He describes how the talent stack he built up enabled him to go from being an employee of Pacific Bell to a famous comic artist. He details how his insights on Donald Trump has cost him many friends, but also a significant amount of his income. He talks about how he never had any major plans for his “Real Coffee with Scott Adams” periscope vlogs including the simultaneous sip, but that it naturally grew in popularity. He also details what Loserthink is, and how you can avoid falling victim to it. Scott also shares what he believes to be the worst advice you could ever get.
