724: Trumps Tariffs and the Risk of a Financial Meltdown

March 2nd, 2018|

Yesterday I briefly mentioned the Trump Tariffs and the risk it might pose to our economy, but today I want to do a full deep dive and look at some historical evidence that suggests we may be looking at a very serious economic collapse if other nations respond in kind to the Trump tariffs. But before that, I want to rehash something we discussed yesterday. I think some of you may have misunderstood what I meant when I suggested a Gun Violence Restraining Order [...]

723: Rent Control, and it’s Effects on Housing and the Homeless

March 1st, 2018|

Yesterday Lindsey made mention of the homeless problem we have here in LA. She's right. I love Venice. (a beach town suburb of LA) It's hippie vibe with mom and pop shops, and great restaurants are a throwback to old-school SOCAL, but it also has one of the worst homeless populations in the greater LA area. And it's not just Venice. Los Angeles has a severe homelessness issue. It's estimated around 60k people are living in LA without a home. Why is this? Yes, [...]

722: Dicks’s Stops Selling Assault Rifles – Corporate Morality or a Giant PR Play?

February 28th, 2018|

There are lots of overreactions and rash judgments made in the wake of a mass shooting like the one we saw in Florida earlier this month but is Dick's Sporting Goods decision to stop selling assault rifles one of them? First, I know it's a tired argument be we first have to know what an "assault rifle" is. There's no clear definition. Is it a semi-automatic weapon? Does it need a pistol grip or rail system? Perhaps a bayonet lug? Let me attempt to [...]

721: The End of Obamacare is in Sight. The Free Market Will Win

February 27th, 2018|

Idaho is laying the groundwork to wrestle way the insurance market from the stranglehold Obamacare has had on it. Thanks to Congress finally ending the individual mandate requiring you to purchase insurance, the Governor of Idaho was able to loosen restrictions on insurance companies allowing them to come up with more creative, low-cost ways to provide insurance. What this means is more options with plans that offer fewer benefits but at a significantly reduced price. Become a JSP Member: http://www.patreon.com/thejsp EURIKA! There is actually [...]

720: Was Deputy Scot Peterson a Coward for Hiding Behind his Car While Kids were Shot?

February 26th, 2018|

This story got hot after my show was in the can on Friday, but I wanted to address it today. Having been in more than one life threating situation, I feel like I can offer a perspective you won't hear from the media. Deputy Peterson released a statement through his attorney claiming he followed protocol and did what he was trained to do. Listen in to find out how I feel about deputy Peterson's actions. *** The Supreme Court has refused to hear an [...]

719: Trump at CPAC and Rick Gates Pleads Guilty

February 23rd, 2018|

I like CPAC, I really do. But some of the blind support it fosters is downright scary. Take Trump for example. The man is one of the worst public speakers I've ever heard. I couldn't even stand to sit a listen to his entire speech. Yet throw in a line about guns here and one about Israel there, and he's got the crowd eating out of his hands. I've got some clips to run through the highlights of his speech. They were few and [...]

718: CNN Accused of Planting Questions….AGAIN!

February 22nd, 2018|

CNN has become the laughing stock of news networks. That's not a small accomplishment. In a country where news has largely become political opinion and petty squabbling cloaked in a "fair and balanced." slogan, it's saying something to be a bottom of the barrel news organization. When you consider there are government sponsored new networks like RT, who are more honest and accurate than CNN, you have to ask yourself how they continue to stay on the air. Well, you can add another bruise [...]

717: The Student Walkout and a Case for Free Speech

February 21st, 2018|

As the gun debate rages in America students are walking out of class in protest of the gun violence experienced in Florida. Now, I don't know if these kids understand the issues or if their protests will ever amount to anything but I do know that we have a very rare right in this country and that is the right to peacefully protest your government. So I ask you the question, "How should we treat these young people?" Should we criticize them? Punish them [...]

715: What is a Libertarian?

February 19th, 2018|

I get the question a lot. And it's not just about defining libertarianism. For me, it's just as important to understand what we should be doing as libertarians if we want to have the kind of impact we want on government and society. Today I'll share a nice 50k foot view of what libertarianism is and how you can advance the principles we all believe in. *** Is there such a thing as common sense gun regulation? Probably not but I've found what I [...]
