Rank #1: 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 Danielle Stella. Danielle is running for U.S. congress in Minnesota's 5th congressional district, which is currently being held by Ilhan Omar. 

Danielle shares what inspired her to run in this heavily Democratic
district, and why she believes she is qualified to do so. Chuck and Mark ask Danielle about her plans to raise funds and what she is planning to do to gain tractions in a district that has been blue for over 50 years. 

They conclude by asking Danielle about allegations of some ongoing legal trouble, and why she is not running under her legal name. They
discuss how this will probably come up much more during the campaign and will be used by Democrats to discredit her. 

More about Daniella Stella: 

Danielle Stella is a special education needs professional launching a campaign to represent Minnesota's 5th congressional district. She dedicates her life to teaching, supporting, and caring for children with
Autism. She is devoted to volunteering her time to supporting numerous healthcare organizations, to include the Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute, Courage Center, Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Allina Clinics, Aftercare, and Extended Care.  

Danielle did not hold prior aspirations to run for political office. However, as a result of the lack of honorable representation for Minnesota's 5th congressional district, she believes it is her duty and privilege to stand up and speak for the forgotten American citizens in the district and throughout the state. She firmly believes that members of congress are charged with representing every American they were elected to serve.  

Danielle is a compassionate Minnesotan who remains steadfast with her values and beliefs in the U.S. Constitution, which directly motivates and guides her political positions. She is a staunch supporter of the rights afforded to Americans by the Constitution. She understands the significance of protecting the First and Second Amendment rights and identifies that the U.S. has a mental health concern disguised as a gun control issue. Danielle stands by her conservative values and firmly supports the President of the United States.  

Danielle supports legal immigration and believes in the laws of the land, authored and enacted by Congress. She believes immigrants that are in the country lawfully, working hard to become legal citizens, deserve their spot in line. She feels these immigrants should be our focus. Danielle respects and supports the hard-working men and women that dedicate their lives to keeping our borders secure. She acknowledges the risks that members of ICE and DHS take on a daily basis.  

Danielle greatly supports the U.S. military, law enforcement, and first responders. She has a heartfelt appreciation for our country’s veterans and believes they deserve the nation’s utmost support beyond the uniform. She works with veterans dealing with PTSD and with citizens in Minnesota’s District 5 with trauma therapy. Danielle also believes that homelessness within the district requires attention and local support.  

Danielle is dedicated to working for and respectfully representing
every single American in Minnesota's 5th congressional district - regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or religious or political differences. She trusts the Bill of Rights and fights to ensure that every American’s Constitutional rights remain unimpeded. She hopes to inspire unity within a nation divided. Danielle Stella looks forward to the enthusiastic support from the great citizens of Minnesota during her journey to become their honored representative for the 5th
district.

Rank #16: Climate Wars: Science Against the Scientist – An Interview with Dr. Peter Ward

Podcast cover
Read more
On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck and Mark are joined by Dr. Peter Ward to find out more about the realities of climate change. Dr. Peter Ward spent almost three decades with the United States Geological Survey and has come out of retirement to try to understand what really causes global warming.

They kick off the show by discussing the problems with climate scientists reporting the correlation and causation and how this has put the blame on greenhouse gasses. Dr. Ward explains how the use of CFC gases during the 70s and 80s played a significant role in weakening our atmosphere.

Their conversation continues as Dr. Ward explains why he does not except the belief that CO2 and other greenhouse gases are the cause of climate change. He also explains the significant impact that volcano eruptions have on climate change, which is usually ignored during climate change debates.

Chuck and Mark break down Dr. Ward's explanation of why much of the scientific study of climate change is not looking at the causation. They also explain how many scientists have just accepted the same beliefs on climate change to gain acceptance within the scientific community and to protect their project funding.

They finish up by discussing the how the true crisis today is not the climate but the scientists. They discuss how difficult it is to gain support from scientists in the field and how Dr. Ward's findings are ignored for reasons outside of his scientific findings.

More about Dr. Peter Ward:

Dr. Peter Langdon Ward earned a BA at Dartmouth College in 1965 and a PhD at Columbia University in 1970. He worked 27 years with the United States Geological Survey as research geophysicist, branch chief, and program manager. He helped develop and manage a major national research program, chaired a committee at the White House, testified twice before Congress, worked on a committee for Vice President Gore, was lead author on more than 50 scientific papers, and won two national awards for explaining science to the general public. He retired in 1998. In 2006, Ward discovered several enigmatic observations related to climate change and has dedicated his life since then, at his own expense, trying to understand what really causes global warming.

Rank #17: Democrats Accuse God of Being a Rapist

Podcast cover
Read more
Chuck and Mark have plenty to talk about on today's show and cover some of the recent key issues. They start off by discussing the recent claims from a college professor that God raped Mary. The guys look at the bigger picture of this ridiculous claim; they consider how the left attacks everything, including any traditions that do not help their agenda. Chuck explains the loss of faith in our nation and others.

Mark moves the conversation by joking that the left should love Santa Claus because he goes house to house giving away free stuff. Socialism is replacing Christianity throughout the world, and we are on pace to look like Europe.

They discuss the latest on the Mueller with hunt and how we have bigger issues in our government than anything President Trump could have possibly done. Mark explains why the recent claims of violations cannot be proven and why the deep state is trying to make President Trump un-electable in 2020.

Also, they discuss Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's threats towards Don Jr., Warren's early 2020 downfall, and the possibility of "Beto" running in 2020.

Chuck and Mark finish up by laughing at the Clintons' tour tickets being sold at huge discounts and the lack of value anyone could receive from attending their event. Mark brings up the possibility that Hillary hoped to announce a 2020 run on the last day of their tour. They also discuss that most of the deep state Republicans are really Democrats and wouldn't mind if Hillary ran again.
