His story began just a few hours after graduating high school, that’s when Jason left home to join the United States Marine Corps. During his time in the service, Jason traveled the world as a distinguished member of one of America’s most elite special operations units, known as Marine Force Reconnaissance. After his time in the Marine Corps, and during the height of the War on Terror, Jason found his distinctive skill set to be in high demand in the combat zones of Iraq and Afghanistan. For a number of years, Jason worked for one of the largest private security firms in the world, where he serviced contracts for the State Department and protected some of the world’s most powerful diplomats as they traveled through the war-torn countries.
During his time overseas, Jason developed another rare skill as a successful foreign exchange currency trader. Ultimately, Jason’s success in trading attracted international recognition and resulted in him leaving the private security business to start what is now considered one of the premier trading education firms in the world. Since its founding in 2009, Jason’s company, TradeEmpowered, has benefited millions of people from over 110 countries through training and education in the financial industry.
Whether conducting counter-terrorism operations in the streets of Iraq, or starting a premier trading education firm from a tent in Afghanistan, it is safe to say that Jason has experienced more in the last decade than most will experience in a lifetime. Jason’s experiences have provided an unfiltered perspective of how the often murky realms of war, foreign policy, politics, economics, and the financial markets really operate and how they affect the common man. Combine that knowledge with a gift for speaking, an ability to explain complex topics in everyday terms, and a desire to empower others by spreading the truth about the events taking place in the world around them, and you end up with The Jason Stapleton Program.
SPEECH FOR LIBERTY
People always ask...why do you do this? What's the show all about?
This video reveals the driving motivation behind The Jason Stapleton Program .
“So who/what is Jason Stapleton/podcast? Before I answer that, ever heard of the saying, ‘In a world gone mad…a glimpse of sanity’ or ‘In an ocean of turmoil…an island of calm’? Well, he’s that and a whole lot more…entertaining, topical, knowledgeable, informed, traveled, intelligent and articulate. In his podcasts he brings his special sense of understanding and ability to simply the issues (governments, politics, economy, domestic and foreign policy, war, markets, morals, and more) and hour each day. If all the madness and all the turmoil (at home and all around the world) have you confused, aggravated and looking for a source of clarity, perhaps Jason can bring you a bit of sanity and a welcome sense of calm.”
“Every day you’ll receive an hour of liberty-oriented discussion that is thought-provoking, educational, and even entertaining. Topics range anywhere from free market economics, to foreign policy, to current events in the news – you name it, Jason probably discusses it at some point. And every time, he breaks it down perfectly so anybody can understand what’s really going on. The message of liberty has been a confusing one for a long time, but every now and then somebody comes along and presents it beautifully. Trust me when I say the voice of liberty has been found again, and it is the Jason Stapleton Program.”
