TinFoil Hat Podcast – next wave of the Awakening

In Advocates of Liberty, conspiracy analysis, Conspiracy Theory, True nature of the State on June 4, 2018 at 3:49 pm

The Joe Rogan nexus is the center of the Awakening. It has produced wave after wave of enlightenment – from hunting to health to comedy to personal development and now its unleashed the next evolution in the consciousness crossroads of comedy and conspiracy theories in the form of The Tin Foil Hat Podcast.

https://allthingscomedy.com/podcast/tin-foil-hat

The Tin Foil Hat Podcast is the most recent wave that has hit the right frequency to be at the forefront of the Awakening. They are combing the best of what Bill Hicks, Alex Jones and the Ancient Alien Theorists did but with a more open mind and an empathic heart.

Sam Tripoli is a stand up comedian who is the driving force behind the Tin Foil Hat Podcast (TFH). His humor, honesty and his conviction that what we’ve been told all our lives has been a lie, keeps the conspiracy conversations moving. Ryan Davis aka “Off the Grid”, is his co-pilot, who brings a spiritual element to the show as well as providing deep research for the topic being discussed in each week’s episode. They are the dynamic duo of comedy conspiracists.

Eddie Bravo is a grandmaster of conspiracy theorists and he is an honorary member of the TFH podcast. He’s been on many episodes and he seems to becoming more and more involved. Which is fantastic. Recently all three did a conspiracy focused comedy show and from all accounts crushed it. I didn’t attend but I did follow their extensive live streaming on the way to the gigs, in the green room, and the on the drive home afterward and it was all extremely entertaining. I especially liked how they took questions on their live stream after the gig.

These three funny guys are warm, sincere and open minded. They are at the forefront of the next wave of the Awakening. Eddie gives them immediate street cred, Sam is incredibly funny, and Ryan is a sensitive well read cat. And you can tell that they are really good friends. The best thing about what they are doing is they don’t have any corporate overlords (that I’m aware of) and they are sincerely interested in seeking the truth.

Their shows are getting better and better. They’ve covered topics from Ancient Aliens to Lizard People to the definite conspiracy of the US Petro Dollar. On each episode they have a guest on and they allow them to explain their point of view. Many times it seems incredible or even insane but with Ryan’s research and Sam’s intensity and humor they drill down into fascinating subjects without endorsing them or refuting what their guests are saying.

Each episode you learn something and you are guaranteed to laugh and be entertained. The conspiracy movement has not broken through yet because of the lack of entertainment value. I was weaned on Alex Jones but his doomsday and insane style coupled with his love of Trump is hard to take. The Tin Foil Hat Podcast are adding much needed humor to the world of conspiracy analysis without watering down the seriousness of the actual conspiracies that are occurring now and have occurred in the past.

You can tell the TFH guys like to have fun, hang out and talk shit. It’s awesome to listen to good hearted people searching for the truth in an entertaining way. If you are newly “woke” or if you’ve been in the game for a while you’ll enjoy listening to their eclectic guests and their particular brand of conspiratorial analysis. Their show is a great way to dip your toe into the conspiratorial waters or if you are a seasoned vet you can take a big sip of their conspiracy laced waters which have been run through a filter of humor without getting emotionally ill.

Do yourself a favor and tune in and listen to these guys explore the nearly infinite world of conspiracies. If you are a fan of Joe Rogan but have been disappointed in his apparent dismissal of the world of conspiracies – then you’ll love the Tin Foil Hat Podcast.

The Joe Rogan Nexus of the Awakening has created the next positive force for good and its call The Tin Foil Hat Podcast.

I live in Georgia and I am trying to help get the Tin Foil Hat tour to the ATL and even to do a show from the Georgia Guidestones. If you would be interested in seeing one of their shows in the ATL or at the Ga Guidestones, hit them up and let them know the dirty south is awoke and waiting for them .

Ronda Rousey, Freedom and the UFC

In True nature of the State on February 24, 2013 at 10:59 pm

On Saturday Feb 23rd Ronda Rousey defeated Liz Cormouche to retain the UFC women’s bantam weight title. It was an awesome fight. Ronda and Liz went at it. Rousey was in trouble in the middle of the first round when Liz almost submitted her with a standing rear naked face crank.

But Rousey toughed it out, slid Liz off her back and gained top position on the ground. From there Rousey battled Liz on the ground and submitted her with a vicious arm bar, with only twenty seconds left in the first round. A great performance by both fighters who happen to be women. This was the first women’s mma fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

What I love about MMA and in particular the UFC is that it is a total meritocracy which celebrates excellence. If you love freedom than you should love the UFC and in particular Ronda Rousey. She is the reason why women are now fighting in the UFC. Dana White, the president of Ultimate Fighting Championship, said in the past that he was dead set against women in his organization. But that all changed when he saw Rousey.

She has submitted all her opponents by arm bar in the first round. She is legit and that is why she made it to the UFC. No government intervention was needed for women to make it to the top promotion in MMA. What was needed was a woman of excellence, an individual who was a great fighter. No title nine intervention, no quotas or any other rules imposed on the UFC were needed for Dana White to make the call for Rousey and Liz to fight.

All that was needed for Dana to change his mind was Rousey’s ability to draw pay-per-view buys. And in order to do that she had to be first and foremost a talented fighter. It also doesn’t hurt that she is beautiful. The free Market and the profit motive brought women to the UFC. Excellence coupled with the profit motive are the best defense against discrimination.

Rousey is going to be a huge star. She is very marketable and she did what very few people do in this world and that is deliver. But she wouldn’t have had the opportunity to showcase her talent in front of millions of people if it weren’t for the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

The UFC has propelled Mixed Martial Arts into the main stream. It is a success story of the free market. The Ferttia brothers who own many different businesses, including a gaming company, bought the struggling UFC promotion at the prompting of their friend Dana White in 2000. Over the years Dana White the president and face of the organization along with, Bruce Buffer the ring announcer, Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg the long time ring side commentators, and Joe Silva the fight maker have grown the UFC into the top MMA promotion in the world. It attracts the top MMA fighters and because of that the organization is estimated to be worth well over a billion dollars.

No government intervention was needed for this to occur. The UFC is watched voluntarily by millions of fans every month on pay-per-view and last year they inked a deal with FOX Sports to expand its audience even more. It is a non-union and a non-collective bargaining organization unlike MLB and the NFL. The UFC doesn’t use taxpayer money to help build stadiums. They have had fights all over the world including events in England, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Brazil, China and Japan. It is an organization without borders just like a True Free Market is meant to be.

Freedom brings the best out of people. It allows individuals to be the best they are capable of being through competion against others. Through competition everyone gets better. I don’t understand the collectivists and statists disdain for competion. It is only through competion that growth occurs.

Even though the UFC is the top dog in MMA there are tons of smaller promotions across the country. If they UFC didn’t sign Ronda Rousey, one of the other promotions would have. That competion played a big role in Dana White’s decision to sign Rousey.

Ronda Rousey’s rise to super stardom occurred because of her freedom to pursue the life she desires. For someone to say she shouldn’t be fighting is ridiculous. (I used to be one of them but now see the error of my ways.) Freedom is necessary for this type of individuation to occur. With Freedom everyone can pursue their definition of happiness. And I’m glad that Rousey’s idea of happiness is getting into the Octagon and putting on one hell of a show.

Top Ten Reasons To Legalize Cannabis

In True nature of the State on January 25, 2013 at 12:28 am

The drug war against growers, sellers and of users of Marijuana is a war against society itself.

Marijuana is a plant. It has been smoked inhaled and ingested by human beings for thousands of years. It is safe, has many medical benefits and it makes you feel good.

Here are the top ten reasons to end the Prohibition on Pot.

1. THE INSANE COST: Over a trillion dollars has been spent on the drug war in the last 40 years. Most of that has been spent on stopping the growers, sellers and buyers of Marijuana.

2. THE GROWTH OF POLICE STATE: The drug war empowers police to violate the privacy of any person on the planet. It has fueled the militarization of the police from the DEA down to the local police SWAT team.

3. REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH: Not only has a Trillion dollars been stolen from tax payers to fuel the Drug Warriors directly, police departments across the country split over 1.6 billion in seized property related to drug crimes each year. This is a massive redistribution of wealth from society to the state.

4. ALLEVIATION OF NEEDLESS SUFFERING: Tens of thousands of sick people already have gained enormous benefit from smoking pot and millions more would benefit if it were legal. Marijuana is a proven anti-nausea and anti-vomiting treatment which has been shown effective in thousands of cancer and AIDS patients across the country. The idea that Marijuana is a medicine is nothing new, over a hundred papers were written about thebenefits of Marijuana between 1840 and 1900 enumerating the many maladies the miracle medicine relieved.The active ingredients in Marijuana relieves pain and does so without the liver destroying side effects and addictive properties of percocet, vicodin or Oxycontin. Marijuana also lessens the symptoms of everything from migraines to menstrual cramps. It could also be a very effective reliever of the symptoms of the FLU virus as well. Marijuana reduces the effects of auto-immune disorders such as Chron’s Disease and Psoriasis. And it is one of the most effective treatments for Glaucoma.

5. LOWER HEALTH CARE COSTS: Not only is Marijuana effective against a whole host of diseases, it is also very cheap to grow and harvest. If it weren’t for the Prohibition induced premium on Pot, it is estimated that each “dose” would cost less than two dollars. Instead of paying the drug companies for their side-effect inducing factory made medicine you could grow your own at home. It would also eliminate millions of trips to the doctor and emergency room because people could treat themselves for many ailments.

6. LOWER PRISON POPULATION: Over 20,000,000 individuals were incarcerated due to Marijuana busts in the last 40 years. That is a boom for the private prison industry but a disaster for taxpayers and the people who were busted. Think about the lawyer and court costs of those 20,000,000 people who were incarcerated. This financial burden along with lost time on a job means many families of the incarcerated suffer horrbile finacial burdens. This leads to more and more dependence on the state and taxpayers ultimatley pick up the tab. While in prison many non-violent drug offenders are put in with hardened criminals and when released begin a life of real crime, against property and persons. Having the largest prison population on the planet makes us less safe and all of us less prosperous.

7. LESS VIOLENCE IN SOCIETY: If politicians really want to save lives they should be falling all over each other to legalize pot. A government study done on soldiers in the 1930’s showed definitively that smoking Marijuana decreases violent tendencies in men. The recommendation then was to allow individuals in the United States to legally purchase pot.Of course the opposite happened and in the 1930’s Marijuana Prohibition started in earnest and the destructive War on Drugs began. The Drug War fuels the violence between Cops and dealers and between the dealers themselves in this country and around the world. If pot were legal than maybe the 40,000 individuals who have been killed in the Cartel Wars along the US/Mexican border might still be alive today. Prohibition leads to violence. Smoking Pot doesn’t.

8. IT’S THE SAFEST INTOXICANT ON PLANET EARTH: Marijuana is exponentially safer than Tobacco and Alcohol. These two over the counter legal substances have led to the deaths of over 440,000 Americans just in the last year. Do you know how many cases of emphysema or other lung related deaths have been caused by Marijuana? The answer is ZERO. Do you know how many people had overdosed on Marijuana in the last 5000 years? The answer is zero. It is medically impossible to OD on the stuff. (I am not for banning either alcohol or tobacco.)

9. MARIJUANA STRENGTHENS SOCIETY: Marijuana is a herb that encourages socialization. Humans are social animals. We all need to have regular positive contact with other human beings. In this ever isolated society, Marijuana brings people together in a positive way.

10. MARIJUANA HELPS WITH CREATIVITY: Marijuana has been shown to help thousands of people to increase their creative output. The typical image of a person who uses pot is the “Stoner” and that image is mostly incorrect. Sure there are those who smoke pot because they just enjoy it and want to relax and there is nothing wrong with that. But there are a lot of people out there who smoke pot not because they want to do less in life, but because they want to do more. For me the perfect example is Joe Rogan. He is a stand up comedian, UFC commentator, black belt in Brazilian jujitsu, host of one of the most successful podcasts on the planet and creator of his own clothing line. This guy is a doer and he smokes a lot of pot.

And the Main Reason to Legalize Pot is because…

YOU OWN YOUR BODY: You have the God-given right to stick whatever you want down your pie-hole. Marijuana makes you feel better, whether it’s because you had a rough day at work or because you have cancer. There are no reasons why adult individuals in the “So Called Land of the Free” shouldn’t be able to go down to the liquor store and choose between a twelve pack of budlight or an ounce of bud.

Freedom is not divisible. If you believe in limited government, lower taxes, and more individual freedom than you must support the legalization of Marijuana.

Living Liberty: Joe Rogan

In Advocates of Liberty, Liberty on January 9, 2013 at 3:16 am

“Liberty is for the Living. If you are not living, you have no need for Liberty.”

Liberty id choice. It is about making your own decisions about how you want to spend what limited time you have on this Earth. Liberty is the ability to choose your path free from the coercion of others.

How many of us who understand the truth about “Our Enemy, the State” are truly living?

I’ve been thinking a lot about Life and Liberty lately and the fact that too often those in the Liberty movement (I am guilty as well) harp on only the negative aspects of this world. But in order to be successful in spreading the ideas of Liberty we need to present the positive aspects of freedom. In particular I believe we should highlight those in this world who are already living lives of Liberty in spite of the overwhelming presence of Government in our lives today.

For those who love liberty and want to see a world filled with more Peace and freedom, we should in fact be living a life of liberty in all the areas we are currently capable of.

One person who is living a life of Liberty is Joe Rogan. If you are fan of the UFC you know him as the color commentator at all the Pay Per View Shows. Others may know him as the host of Fear Factor and still others may know him as a stand up comedian who was a regular on the T.V. show “News Radio”. On top of all that he has one of the most successful podcasts on the planet.

What makes Joe Rogan a man Living Liberty is that he lives the life he desires despite the creeping totalitarianism in this country. He takes full advantage of the choices he has in his life. He is a skeptic at heart and questions everything. He admits to taking psychotropic drugs and smokes marijuana on a regular basis. He also trains Brazilian jiu-jitsu and can talk at length about the nature of reality. He can clearly articulate the ridiculousness of the drug war and the growing oppressiveness of the police state.

He is an interesting guy who admits that earlier in his life he had a confidence problem. At one stage of his life he considered himself a total “piece of s**t”. It was after he became heavily involved in martial arts d his confidence began to grow. And a lot of Living Liberty is all about Confidence.

“Liberty belongs to the Bold” I hit upon that idea (I’m sure not original) after I read the “Creature From Jekyll Island.” The men who plotted to create the Federal Reserve System were bold, the men at the top of the heap are bold, and those who know the truth but still lie to keep power are bold. Even though their actions are evil they do what they do so they have more and better choices in their lives so they can live their perverted version of a life of liberty.

Liberty doesn’t exist for those who refuse to live. Live your life fully now and don’t wait till the Republicans have control of the Senate or Obama Care is repealed. Live now. People like Joe Rogan, Alex Jones, Steve Rinella, Ted Nugent, Vince Vaughn and many others in this world who are choosing to live in the present are in their own unique way blazing a trail for others to live Lives of Liberty.

Liberty is choice. It is true as taxation grows, as regulation regiments more and more of your life, and the police have become more militarized and aggressive in enforcing the ever growing mountains of laws, the amount of choices we have and their quality of those choices have changed. It is our duty who are aware of this creeping totalitarianism to sound the alarm. But it does a disservice to ourselves to focus purely on the negative of life and forget about the choices that are in our power to make.

Joe Rogan is not a guy who is in the “liberty movement”. I’m not sure where he stands on a some of issues. I do know he’s for legalizing weed and some other drugs and I believe he’s for brining the troops home. But he might harbor progressive ideas about the state. I don’t know. What I do know about is that the man appears to be sincere and genuine in his respect for his fellow human. This is evidenced by how he shows deference and genuine respect for the fighters he interviews in the UFC Octagon after a fight. every time he gets in the Octagon (UFC) and interviews the fighters. 

He is also a capitalist and entrepreneur at heart. He’s developed a clothing line called “Higher Primate”. On his podcast he is a pitchman for such diverse products as the “fleshlight” and Onnit brand supplements which he co-owns. He produced out-of-pocket his most recent standup comedy album. He pursues what he loves. And that should be the message for those spreading the ideas of Liberty. Do what you Love as long as it doesn’t violate the natural rights of others.

Joe Rogan did an Interview with Alex Jones the other day. The two of them are good friends. I’m a big fan of Alex as well. If you haven’t checked out the interview I suggest you do. Something Rogan said in the interview with Alex Jones really stuck with me and I believe it is an integral concept for all of us who want to be more free. He said to Alex when they were talking about the nature of Reality, that the one thing he knows for sure about Reality in this Universe is that he feels good to make people laugh andmake people  smile. That’s why he does the stand up comedy.

http://www.prisonplanet.com/joe-rogan-truth-seeker-the-interview.html

When we talk to others about Liberty let us not forget this fundamental Law of Nature. It feels good to laugh and smile and to make others do the same. Don’t get so caught up in the misery that the State causes to forget to live your life fully by pursuing what you are interested in and being around people who inspire and support you. 

The most miserable in life don’t win. The famous quote “A life well lived is the best revenge”  is something for all of us to consider when we get caught up in the daily grind of the news cycle reporting about lying corrupt politicians, the endless wars and increasing political strife. Focusing solely on the Negative in life is detrimental to you and the one’s you love. If you want to advance Life, Love and Liberty in your life I suggest you start focusing on the choices you have the most power over. Those in life Living Lives of Liberty who are Happy, Successful and Knowledgable are the one’s best suited for advancing the cause of Liberty for all.

Thanks to Joe Rogan for Living his life of Liberty.
