Chef @davidjanet is in the house. Let the cooking begin! Post your progress, questions and comments below! Pictures and videos welcome!
OK guys, dinner night has arrived! We are having just a nutty day here with press for the book and then this dog showing up at our door (see my previous post), so gonna slightly modify the original plan, but this will be a good test run for the future.
So first off, here's the recipe we'll be using. Hope you all were able to get as many of the ingredients as possible!
@davidjanet will start cooking at at 3 pm pacific and we'll set a post here with some pics to get everyone started. Send your own pictures and videos in the comment section as you cook. Ask questions, make recommendations, add some spice, it's all good. Let's get one giant thread of all of our progress throughout the process. (And of course share what wine you're drinking along the way!)
We'll have live chat feature up and running by next time we do this and are working on a video solution as well.
Dinner is for subscribers only so will set that post to ...
So @michaeltfranke just found this dog abandoned by the supermarket near us. He waited a half hour with him then brought him here. No tags. He’s an old timer and really exhausted. Fed him, gave him water. Anyone in LA looking to adopt? He’s super sweet, just needs some TLC.
Already contacted the people who saved Clyde. They’re gonna get him some medical attention...
Live at 8:45 am pacific / 11:45 am eastern talking about how Corona will affect the 2020 election. Plus taking your questions on any topic. Whatcha got for me?
And yes, we’re all having dinner tonight. More info later!
They say that Trump hates the gays. My husband @DavidJanet and I met him at Mar-a-lago. Here’s what happened.

Clyde took his bedroom bed and relocated it to next to his living room bed. I sense a HGTV home decorating show in his future...
Good morning! How was your weekend? Do week’s even end anymore?! Hope you guys are recharged for the days ahead. I sense we shift more into the “when to open up” phase this week. Good.
We just posted my interview with Marco Rubio. Click the play button below to find it in our content section.

Pre-order here: www.dontburnthisbook.com

Highly recommend you guys check out this exchange between Congressman Dan Crenshaw and Bill Maher. Facts and nuance are starting to break through.
I’ll be on Real Time in May 29th...
Was wide awake at 6:15 am this morning for some reason. Clyde and I are chilling in the back yard as the sun comes up. How are you guys doing?
(BTW thanks for all the ear advice. We took him to the vet and it turns out he has a pretty intense viral thing in his ear. On meds now.)
As some of you have already seen, the new app update allows for multiple pics in a single post. Just swipe right (or in this case left), as the kids say. Here’s a Clyde collage for ya...
Ok folks, here’s the recipe for our community dinner on Wednesday night. Wanted to make sure you guys all have enough time to get the proper ingredients.
More details coming. Looking forward to breaking bread (or spaghetti) with you!
Tag @davidjanet with any questions or comments...
Hey guys need some dog advice. Clyde was up all last night shaking his head and scratching his ear. Looks like ear infection or allergies. Any ideas on home remedy before we trek out to the vet in the midst of this?
Doing a live video Q&A on Instagram at 5 pm pacific. Fear not, video streaming coming to the RR app soon and they’ll be done right here!
First personalized copies heading out. These are for some of the incredible people I’ve crossed paths with in the last few years, including Jordan Peterson, Peter Thiel, Douglass Murray, Tucker Carlson, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and many more. Surreal to be writing these inscriptions!
Think we are gonna do a dinner night next week. @davidjanet will prepare a menu with ingredients and instructions, we’ll all make the same thing and then share pics and video. Looks like spaghetti with meat sauce since we don’t want everyone heading out for crazy ingredients! Who’s in? Probably mid-next week, let’s say Wednesday evening...
Live in 10 minutes talking about why a digital detox might be needed now more than ever. Plus your questions!
Good morning everyone! We’re live again today at 8:45 am pacific / 11:45 am eastern. Talking about how not to be totally hooked online as we’re forced to spend more time in the digital world. Also taking your questions on anything and everything.
In the meantime, take a visit with Ferris to the Rubin Report museum...

Audio issue now fixed! Live with lockdown updates plus the first copy of Don’t Burn This Book...which Clyde ate!
Live in about a half hour. Discussing the continuing lockdown, the encroachment on our freedoms and taking questions exclusively from The Rubin Report community.
How was everyone’s weekend? Anyone else join me off the grid? While I didn’t miss Twitter or the rest of it, I actually did miss what was happening right here. Catching up on your posts now!
I’m live today at 8:45 pacific / 11:45 am eastern. Will be talking about the CA lockdown extended to May 15th as well as some of the authoritarian nightmares unfolding across the world. Check what’s going on in Michigan. (See image.)

Don’t Burn This Book: Clyde Edition.
I’m gonna take the weekend totally off screens except Sopranos and maybe a movie tonight. Will pick up Sunday movie next weekend.
Who dare join me off the grid for the weekend? Let’s reconvene Monday morning and see how it went. I double dare you!
First off, the pet pic thread (my last post) is clearly one of the greatest things on the Internet, so please keep sharing your pals!
Unrelated, since Corona started I’ve been breaking one of my own rules which is to stay off social media over the weekend. Thinking of getting back to it this weekend. You guys dare join me?
We can still all pick a movie on Sunday and discuss here on Monday. Any recommendations?
Live chat and video streaming coming to the app soon!
I’ll be live (possibly with whiskey) at 5:30 pm pacific / 8:30 eastern with Congressman Dam Crenshaw. Join us on Instagram Live!
So all of our clips with Jeffrey Tucker were demonetized by YouTube. In a time when podcast advertisers are also dropping out, it truly is you guys that keep us going! So an extra thanks from the entire RR team...
Live at 8:45 am pacific / 11:45 am eastern. Will be taking your questions the whole time so get them in now!
Oh, and just saw that our first two clips with Jeffrey Tucker have been demonetized. You guys keep this ship afloat!

OK, we've tested Netflix Party and it's super simple. All you have to do is download the Netflix Party extension (netflixparty.com) on Chrome. A few minutes before 1 pm pacific, I'll post the party link right here. It'll prompt you to login to Netflix and then we'll all be watching together once I hit play on the movie. Chat is on the right side.
We'll get back to video chats next week, but I spent a lot of time on camera this week and just need a day off! Also we ran our first tests of streaming within the app today and text chat is coming soon.
If you have any questions tag @michaeltfranke. Chat with you all soon!
Pre-Matrix breakfast. (The key is everything seasoning on top of the lox.)
Matrix at 1 pm pacific / 4 pm eastern. We’ll be watching using the Netflix Party extension which you can download at Netflixparty.com.
Will post further instructions and the link a bit before showtime.
Today’s Afternoon Movie is The Matrix. Seems like a perfect escape...or vision of the future?
We may try Netflix Party for live chat during the movie instead of Zoom call after. I need a day off the camera! Have any of you used it before? (We are building chat for our app which should be launched shortly.)
1 pm pacific / 4 pm eastern. Movie available on Netflix. Who’s in?
I’m on The Greg Gutfeld Show later tonight. Don’t wanna give away too much but yes, whiskey was involved...
If any of you are in the LA area, these pups (and their moms) will be up for adoption shortly. They were rescued at an overrun puppy mill by the same folks who saved Clyde a couple weeks ago.
Drop me a message below and I can connect you with the right people.
Twitter locked my account and suspended my ability to use Twitter ads. (Which I’ve never used.)
I had Sinatra playing in the background of a video of Emma the day we put her down, almost two months ago.
Locals communities are the future. And as always, thank you for being here...
Happy Hour on Zoom video with you guys, Kelly Carlin and Peter Boghossian in one hour. Will post the Zoom link in about 45 minutes. Will be for subscribers only so please don’t share.
Now prepare the booze!
Happy Hour on Zoom confirmed for 6 pm
Pacific / 9 pm Eastern tonight. Looks like at least two friends and former RR guests, Peter Boghossian and Kelly Carlin, will be joining us. Will post the Zoom link around 5:50 pm.
Also I’ll be joining Dana Perino on Fox News in 15 minutes. Yes, Clyde is in the house!
What do you guys think about a little Happy Hour situation tonight? Let’s all grab a glass (or two or three) and video chat over Zoom. If enough of you respond yes we’ll do it. Probably 6 pm pacific. I know that’s tough for our European friends but I do have to work during the day!
Lots of amazing stuff you can do instead of throwing away scraps. We’re growing new romaine lettuce from the “butts” of old romaine, growing green onions from the roots we chopped off, and working on sprouting red onion as well. Lemon and lime trees behind just starting to flower, too.
You guys got any other tips and tricks to help people grow and conserve food?
(And yes, that’s a Sophia Petrillo shot glass!)
Will be live at 8:45 am pacific / 11:45 am eastern with today’s Direct Message and your questions. Today I’ll be talking about two books that can help you think clearly right now, Jordan Peterson’s “12 Rules for Life” and Peter Thiel’s “Zero to One.”
Submit questions below about the books or any topic on your mind. Serious, funny, silly, it’s all good. Tag our new associate producer @michaeltfranke for extra attention!

Plus, of course, they’re ad-free. Here’s my chat with Bret Easton Ellis, hot off the presses...
Meant to post this last night. @davidjanet smoked some seriously delicious ribs. All the food love he’s getting around here has inspired him to move on the cookbook and website faster than anticipated. Stay tuned!
Live with Monday’s Direct Message in 40 minutes. Will be talking about unemployement, the stimulus package and what you can do now if you’re looking for work. Taking questions exclusively via the community, just comment down below.
Live at 11:45 am eastern:
Sunday morning thought while having coffee in the backyard...
As crazy, seemingly out of control, and unchartered this current situation is, I really do see a silver lining. So many people are starting to think about things differently and that’s where opportunity will present itself in the future. We’re all thinking about the work we do, the people we live with, the distance from family, if we’re self reliant enough, what life skills we actually have, and so much more.
Once we get through this, and we will, there will be a sense of a new world.
Anyone else having similar thoughts?
Double burger with special sauce, carmelized onions and garlic Old Bay fries. All praise @davidjanet!
Burger and fries night has begun. Gotta carmelize those onions with a little red wine... 👏👏👏 @davidjanet
Update: Groundhog Day is available on Netflix in the US. We’ll start watching at 1 pm pacific / 4 pm eastern tomorrow (Sunday) and then keep an eye out for the Zoom link for the video chat right after!
Tomorrow’s Sunday Movie is Groundhog Day. Not only is it Bill Murray’s best movie (no offense Ghostbusters) but it’s Jordan Peterson’s favorite comedy. It’s available for rental on Amazon for $3.99. Start the movie at 1 pm pacific / 4 pm eastern and I’ll post the Zoom video chat link here while we watch. Jump in immediately after the movie, and please don’t share the link it’s for community members only!
Going forward we’ll try to select only movies available on Netflix or Amazon Prime so we don’t have to get hit with the rental fee.
Will post reminder with Dave’s Crazy Popcorn recipe tomorrow!
