Podcast cover
Read more
On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Mark takes the chance to catch up with Joe Polish. Not only is Joe the founder of Genius Network and President of Piranha Marketing, but he was also able to overcome and conquer addiction earlier in his life.

Mark and Joe start off today's show by chatting about Joe's professional background and his personal struggle with addiction. They discuss how addiction stems from a feeling of disconnection and a deep-rooted fear of not feeling entirely safe. Joe explains how addiction can feel like a solution to the fear and disconnection.

Joe shares that, by going public about his personal battle with addiction, he has had a positive impact on others struggling to overcome their own vices. They also discuss how our society and justice system has a pathetically poor approach towards helping addicts.

Next, they chat about how the modern age is beginning to struggle with an addiction of its own: technology. Although technological advancement has done some truly amazing things for society, it has also led to generations having an ever-growing addiction to "screen time".

They wrap up the show by discussing the journey that an addict must go through before they reach out for help. Joe explains that personal shame will continuously drive someone back into the arms of their addiction. On the flip side, personal disgust and a desire for betterment can be the biggest drivers towards finally seeking help.

Podcast cover
Read more
On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck and Mark are joined by Dinesh D'Souza, a bestselling author and filmmaker who regularly exposes the lies of the progressive movement that is the Democratic Party. Leading up to the 2016 presidential election, Dinesh D'Souza released the film Hillary's America, and he has recently released Death of a Nation.

D'Souza explains how his film reveals the truth on many of the threats we face today in America. Chuck and Mark bring up some critical current issues, and Dinesh offers detailed insights that proves why the left sees him as a threat to their agenda. He also mixes in some details of his film, Death of a Nation, with his explanations.

Chuck and Mark continue by asking question about a few topics that D'Souza has personal experience with. This includes the questions about President Trump's campaign finances, progressive strongholds on college campuses and the Democrats forcing racial issues on society.

They wrap up the show by discussing the importance of Death of a Nation and what he hopes people will take away from it. Chuck and Mark ask what the film will mean for our nation's prosperity. D'Souza says the film will be out before the midterms; if people take the time to watch it, then it could have a great impact on the elections.

More about Dinesh D'Souza:

Dinesh D'Souza is a bestselling author and filmmaker. His films, 2016: Obama's America and America: Imagine A World Without Her, are respectively the #2 and #6 highest political documentaries of all time. D'Souza's latest feature-length film, Hillary's America, is widely credited with contributing to Hillary Clinton's defeat in 2016, and quickly joined his first two films in the top 10 political documentaries of all time.

D'Souza's latest film, Death of a Nation, builds on this success and takes on progressive big lies, finally proving once and for all that the real party of fascism and racism is now and has always been the Democratic Party.

Born in Mumbai, India, Dinesh has truly lived the American Dream. He moved to the United States to attend school on a Rotary Scholarship. Following graduation from Dartmouth College, he went on to work in the Reagan White House as a policy analyst. D'Souza has served as the John M. Olin Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and the Robert and Karen Rishwain Fellow at Stanford University. D'Souza served as president of The King's College in New York City from 2010 to 2012.

D'Souza has won numerous awards including "Best Documentary" for America (The Dove Foundation), and he has been called one of the "top young public-policy makers in the country" by Investor's Business Daily.

As the author of over 15 nationally renowned books—many of them #1 New York Times bestsellers—D'Souza has been invited to speak to groups all over the country on politics, philosophy, and Christianity. His razor-sharp wit and entertaining style have allowed him to participate in highly-publicized debates about politics and Christianity with some of the most famous atheists and leftists of our time, including Christopher Hitchens, Bill Ayers, and others.

One of D'Souza's favorite venues for debates and speeches has always been college campuses. During the past 25 years, he has appeared at hundreds of colleges and universities and spoken with hundreds of thousands of students in these live settings.

D'Souza has been named one of America's most influential conservative thinkers by the New York Times Magazine. The World Affairs Council lists him as one of the nation's 500 leading authorities on international issues, and Newsweek cited him as one of the country's most prominent Asian-Americans.

D'Souza's articles have appeared in virtually every major magazine and newspaper, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic Monthly, Vanity Fair, New Republic, Forbes, and National Review. He has appeared...

Rank #9: How Insurance & Government Dictates your Health – An Interview with Matt Feshbach

Podcast cover
Read more
Mark is joined by Matt Feshbach on today's show. Matt is the Founder of AMBROSE Cell Therapy, which is a stem cell hospital. He has years of experience in the medical field and has a great understanding of healthcare options.

They start off by discussing the "Right-to-Try" law that has was recently signed into law. They discuss the importance of giving terminally ill patients the right to try experimental drugs that have the chance to improve their health. Mark brings up the point that it is a basic human right to own our own biology and that the government has hijacked our basic right to make decisions on our own health.

As they continue their discussion, Mark and Matt discuss the politics of getting an FDA approval for a new drug. Mark explains how the pharmaceutical companies and the government have stopped innovation by limiting it to those who can spend the billions of dollars on the approval process. Matt expands on this by explaining that the pharmaceutical companies and government benefit from these high costs, but the drug companies are not doing this to harm people.

Matt explains that the stem cell research and therapy that he does is not embryonic stem cells; they are stem cells from the body's own fat. Matt also explains what a stem cell is and what the therapy can do for the patient. They include the regulations and government issues that they face with stem cell therapy.

They wrap up on discussing the politics that are working against stem cell research and how insurance companies benefit from normal treatments because of government policies. Mark explains why the Affordable Care Act created an incentive for insurance companies to favor more expensive types of care.

More about Matt Feshbach:

Matthew (Matt) Feshbach is the Founder and CEO of AMBROSE Cell Therapy. AMBROSE was founded in 2017 with the mission: To help people with chronic degenerative diseases improve symptoms, function and quality of life with adult stem cell therapy.

Matt has taken an unconventional path throughout his business career. He did not attend college but instead taught tennis at private homes in Silicon Valley. Through that experience he developed professional and personal relationships with a number of prominent investment managers, who inspired him to study securities analysis and begin investing himself.

This led to the co-founding, with his brothers Kurt and Joe, of Feshbach Bros in 1982. Feshbach Bros. managed the first "short-only" hedge fund. Assets under management grew from $20,000 to $1 Billon in 9 years. Matt's investment career, through the ups and downs of the stock market, spanned more than 30 years.

In 2009 he and his brother, Joe, began researching adult stem cells and their potential, due to their interest in a publicly traded company. They spoke to researchers from all over the world - Israel to Japan, Holland to Spain, New York to Los Angeles, Chicago to Dallas and so on - to understand the best source of adult stem cells as well as the science, technologies and unmet medical needs they could potentially address.

As a result of their research, they came to have a well-informed opinion that fat (adipose) tissue is the most accessible, abundant and potent source of adult stem and regenerative cells. As well, that the mixed population of adipose-derived stem and regenerative cells (ADRCs) could be used to address a broad spectrum of chronic diseases. This has now been validated in the published medical literature. 1 2 3

Along with his brother, Matt founded Okyanos (Oh-key-ah-nos) Cell Therapy in August 2011 in Freeport, Bahamas. The Greek God of Rivers, "Okyanos" symbolizes restoration of blood flow, which is an important mechanism of action of ADRCs. Shortly after helping to create Okyanos, Matt's brother, Joe, sadly died of a cardiac arrest. Joe's death prompted Matt to be even more dedicated his purpose to help...

Podcast cover
Read more
On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck and Mark are joined by Bishop Council Nedd. Council Nedd is not only a Bishop and a Pennsylvania State Constable, but also a Member of Project 21. Project 21 is an initiative of The National Center for Public Policy Research to promote the views of African-Americans whose entrepreneurial spirit, dedication to family and commitment to individual responsibility have not traditionally been echoed by the nation's civil rights establishment.

They start off today's show by discussing how the progressive left focuses on identity politics and issues like race. They explain the problem with trendy fads causing people to change their core beliefs. Council also explains the power of peer pressure on an individual's core values.

Chuck, Mark and Council move into discussing how the left portrays the U.S. as a horrible place, while people all over the world dream of coming here. Mark explains how being an American is an ideology built on individual freedoms and explains the difference between geographical Americans and philosophical Americans.

More About Council Nedd:

In 2005, Bishop Nedd became the youngest bishop in the world, and in 2010, the youngest archbishop in the world. As Archbishop of the Episcopal Missionary Church, Bishop Nedd presided over Anglican churches in the United States, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). During 2011 while living in the UAE, Bishop Nedd had multiple private audiences with members of the royal family. One of the crowning achievements of his term as archbishop has been the successful rescue of an entire family of persecuted Syrian Christians, whom he helped establish asylum in Scotland. Bishop Nedd facilitated an unprecedented intercommunion agreement with the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and also led delegations to ecumenical dialogues with the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem and the Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land.

Bishop Nedd's interest in education and young people led him to take a two-year sabbatical from the politics of Washington, to teach U.S. history and to establish and coach a policy debate team at a public charter high school in the nation's capital. Bishop Nedd also helped establish a rugby team at another D.C. charter school, serving kids from underserved communities. Although no longer teaching, Bishop Nedd has provided scholarships to assist needy children, has established a primary school in Nairobi, Kenya, and even raised money to reopen and staff an orphanage in Abuja, Nigeria. Despite all the demands on Bishop Nedd's time, he still manages to preach at St. Alban's Anglican Church in State College, PA about 45 Sundays per year while also serving as a Pennsylvania State Constable.

They finish up by discussing how the government is monitoring all phone calls, text messages, and online communications. Bill explains how they use algorithms to identify communications that are monitored by individuals. Michael explains how big tech and the government has dirt on every
citizen, and how it’s almost impossible to protect yourself from this.

William Binney is a former high-level National Security Agency intelligence official who, after his 2001 retirement after 30 years, blew the whistle on NSA surveillance programs. His outspoken criticism of the NSA during the George W. Bush administration made him the subject of FBI investigations that included a raid on his home in 2007. Even before Edward Snowden’s NSA whistle blowing, Binney publicly revealed that NSA had access to telecommunications companies’ domestic and international billing records, and that since 9/11 the agency has intercepted some 15 to 20 trillion domestic
communications. 

The Snowden disclosures confirmed many of the surveillance dangers Binney — without the benefit of documents — had been warning about under both the Bush and Obama administrations.
