688: The Propaganda Campaign Continues Over Net Neutrality Repeal

December 15th, 2017|

My new Podcasting Course is open for early enrollment! Sign up here: http://www.jasonstapleton.com/podcasting Even Fox News is jumping on the net neutrality fear mongering. In an article from their website they claim "On Thursday, the FCC repealed Obama-era net neutrality rules, junking the long-time principle that all web traffic must be treated equally." What do they mean "long-term principle"? The current regulation has only been in effect since 2015! And what about the claim that all web traffic must be treated equally? Why? Why [...]

687: What’s Really Driving the Bitcoin Market

December 14th, 2017|

Deutsche Bank just released a new report showing 40% of bitcoin trading is Japanese yen-dominated. That means nearly half of all bitcoin volume is likely coming from heavily leveraged FX trading accounts owned by financially illiterate Japanese traders looking for easy money. That's important since heavily leveraged trading can be both a benefit and a curse. You can make a fortune in minutes, but you can also lose everything just as quickly. I'll run you through the report and caution all of you again [...]

686: Trump Touts Republican Tax Plan, but It’s not the Earth-Shattering Change they Claim

December 13th, 2017|

If you listen to Donald Trump talk about the tax plan you'd think they were curing cancer on capital hill. The president claims "huge" tax cuts, "bigger than they thought" but the numbers just don't reflect it. The highest wage earners among us are going to pay more, and your average middle-class American is only saving around 1%. It's a far cry from the president's claims. *** California is considering moving to a mileage tax rather than a gas tax as more drivers move [...]

684: Another Home Grown Terrorist. When Will We Learn?

December 11th, 2017|

Yes, I know the guy is an idiot who couldn't even kill himself much less anyone else but what should concern you the most is the WHY behind the increase in homegrown terrorist violence. It's not just here in America. These types of attacks are happening all over the world with guns, knives, cars, acid, and explosives. People willing to kill themselves and innocent people all in the name of a terror group or their god. I was watching Fox New's coverage of the [...]

683: Jason Unloads on the Bitcoin Fanatics

December 8th, 2017|

I've got to talk about bitcoin. Over the last year or so I've been warning you that bitcoin was a massive disaster waiting to happen while at the same time promoting the idea of an independent currency that isn't susceptible to government and central bank monetary meddling. For my honest and frank discussion of the risks involved and my warnings to novice traders and investors to proceed with caution, I have been excoriated by those who seek to promote the false narrative that the [...]

682: Morning Joe Hits Trump – Is the President Suffering from Mental Illness?

December 7th, 2017|

It's no surprise given the feud between the President and Joe Scarborough that Joe would come out and question the president's mental state after a speech recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Isreal. And frankly, he has some grounds to do it. During that speech the president had serious problems getting his words out, slurring several times and struggling to finish his thoughts. It was suggested that the president might have had a very dry mouth and it was that and not a near [...]

681: Another Day, Another Violation of Your Liberty

December 6th, 2017|

The Trump administration recently announced they intend to continue their unconstitutional warrantless surveillance of American citizens even if Congress fails to renew their ability to do so. All I can do is laugh. You've got an unconstitutional action being defended on the grounds of a thinly laid legal argument. It's hard not to think we're doomed. LOL *** We're also going to discuss the case before the Supreme Court involving a cake shop owner and a gay couple who were refused service. The owner [...]

680: Trump, Jerusalem and a Private Spy Army

December 5th, 2017|

It's got all the makings of a great story, and I don't aim to disappoint today. The big news today is about the president's decision to delay moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. Well, that's not entirely true... The truth is, Congress passed a bill in 1995 calling Jerusalem the capital city of Isreal and ordering the embassy be moved there. But the built-in delay prevision has allowed every president since Clinton to push off implementing the bill. Now it's in front of Trump [...]

679: Can You Charge the President With Obstruction of Justice?

December 4th, 2017|

It's an interesting legal question. The president is in charge of the Justice Department, and the FBI falls under that department. So, can the president be charged with obstructing justice when he has the authority to decide what will be investigated and what won't AND had the right to remove the heads of those departments for not following his instructions? I'll let you listen to today's episode to find out my answer. 🙂 *** CVS Pharmacy has announced a deal to buy Aetna for [...]
