Ok folks the results are in and most people were between noon and 3 pm Saturday for the movie. Let’s split the difference and say 1 pm PACIFIC, which gives our European friends a little bit an earlier start.
So 1 pm tomorrow it is. We are still debating the movie option but I promise it won’t be Contagion! Will announce in the morning and post instructions for the Zoom video call after...
OK, tons of responses about movie night, but I'm thinking about switching it daytime tomorrow (Saturday) since more people will be available due to time zones. Let's try a poll!
We'll do a mass Zoom video call after to discuss. And keep in mind if need be you can watch before but something fun about us all watching at the exact same time.
Will post again later with the official movie options!
Since it looks like we’re all gonna be on lockdown for a few days what do you guys think about a movie night tomorrow? Can select a movie from Netflix or Apple Movies, all watch at the same time and jump on here after to discuss.
I have a couple movies in mind. Would it be nuts to watch Contagion? Or should we all do something silly for a break from it all? Share recommendations below!
So what’d you guys think of Trump’s speech? Things are certainly being ramped up across the board. Like everyone else, all my travel gigs in March have been cancelled. Hoping we have solved this by tour time next month.
I’m really gonna try to amplify the right voices during this time because there is so much confusion and misinformation out there. Since travel was cancelled for next week we are gonna try to do a couple Skype shows on Corona instead. Any recommendations on guests or specific questions we should make sure to hit would be appreciated...
Just did an impromptu livestream with Jerry Wayne, the Detroit auto worker who dared to ask Joe Biden a question yesterday...
I know lots of people are feeling good because of Bernie’s implosion, but let’s not forget this wizard is waiting on the wings!
Morning vibes here at Rubin Report studio .
Found a new band on Spotify, The Rippingtons. (At least new for me...)
Perfect for morning coffee, get your day started right. Anyone else heard of them? Or got other good morning recommendations?
With Dana Perino on Fox News in 4 minutes. Note my Darth Vader socks in honor of Order 66 that the Democrats executed on Bernie yesterday...
Was really great chatting with a bunch of you during the livestream last night. We had a couple little technical hiccups but are back in studio today working them out. Totally gonna do more of these. Your questions were great and I’d rather talk to real people than pundits any election night!
Did you guys dig it as much as I did?
Live with your calls right now! (Submit your questions right here if you don’t wanna jump on video.)
Gonna have a different special guest moderate the Q&A’s during the tour stops. So far we have Greg Gutfeld in NYC, Dennis Prager in Anaheim, Tim Pool in Philadelphia, Christina Sommers in Silver Spring, Lauren Chen in Detroit and Bridget Phetasy in Minneapolis. More announced soon. Ticket link here!
Morning, everyone. How was your weekend? We did a bunch of stuff around the house, including refreshing this succulent wall in the backyard.
Heading to vote in the CA primary today. (Day early.) Will report back on the process.
Also got some updates on guests who will be joining me on tour. Separate post about that this afternoon...
Heading to San Franscisco for wall to wall Locals meetings. Will try to do a meetup at a bar tonight like we did last time in town. Keep an eye out for push notifications if you’re in the SF area around 8:30. And don’t step in poop or on a syringe on the way! 💩💉
Former RR guest Zuby has been suspended by Twitter, literally for writing “ok dude.”
The “enforcer” here then takes to Twitter to gloat about it.
We were going to announce his Locals next week, but are rushing it to today. Stay tuned...
Impromptu livestream in 10 minutes. Don’t Burn This Book Tour pre-sale tickets now on sale! 17 stops announced so far.
Ask Me Anything during the livestream!
Don’t Burn This Book Tour tickets are now available for sale and I want you guys to get in first! 17 cities in May with more coming. Check this link and use code SOLO!
Bernie has no idea how he’s gonna pay for any of it, but the sad truth is the base couldn’t care less...
Hey everyone. Flash offer for community members only today. I’ll sign a book plate for every copy of “Don’t Burn This Book” purchased today. Just forward your receipt to email@example.com and we’ll send your way!
Bloomberg had a pretty terrible debate, but this burn on Bernie is gonna sting for awhile...
Dennis Prager posted a thoughtful response to my conversation with Heather MacDonald on secular conservatism. I personally find the Peterson/Prager argument more compelling at a societal level, though of course I believe at an individual level atheists can live a moral and good life. Would love to hear your thoughts on this.
A good portion of my upcoming book is on this very topic...
“Don’t Burn This Book” is now the most coveted reward in all of Hyrule!
Gonna be posting a bunch of fun promo stuff like this across social media as the release date gets closer. Video games, movies, pop culture references, etc.
If you’ve got some good ideas lemme know and we’ll get the team on it...
On this 2nd anniversary of the Parkland shooting I want to give @KyleKashuv a shout-out for being one of the finest young people I know. Proud to have you on the team and call you a friend...
So @davidjanet and I happened to walk past a dog adoption place just now. This dog, part Australian Cattle dog, which Emma was as well, jumped out of the pen and sat with us.
Not ready just yet but will keep eye on her!
Let's do a highly scientific poll to start the day. Who will be the Democratic nominee?
Slowly getting back into the swing of things here. Thanks again for all the thoughts and prayers. @davidjanet and I have read every single one.
Thinking about a livestream call in show via Skype on Super Tuesday, March 3rd. Will stream on YouTube as normal but only take video questions from community members. Floated this idea once before. You guys into it?
And one more of Emma for now...
So how do I jump right back in the political craziness after the last few days of endless love and tears?
@davidjanet and I truly thank you guys for all the love. Might need just a day or two here to get back to the regularly scheduled stuff!
We are letting our sweet girl Emma move on to her next adventure on Monday. Hunkering down at home this weekend and gonna spoil the hell out of here. You guys have sent so many wishes and prayers and we thank you for all the love. ❤️🐕❤️
Man, I can’t take this anymore. Gonna start this livestream early.
I’ve got whiskey, video clips, and your questions. Let’s talk about that debate:
I’ll be live immediately after the Democratic Debate to night. Flying solo so will make sure to get to more of your questions than last time! Start submitting below and we’ll post again before the debate...
Not to jinx it, but anyone else feeling really good about things right now? So many interesting voices out there, new alliances being formed, and plenty of opportunity if you dare to see it...and seize it...
(And as a side note for me personally, much of the reason I’m feeling this is because of interacting with you guys right here. You make me a better man!)
Hey everyone please welcome @PeterB6162 to the RR community. If any of you are in the South Carolina area he’s a veteran looking for a new gig...
Reading all your posts about the State of the Union. Most everyone in agreement that the speech was excellent. Pelosi ripping the paper after was a literal example of what’s wrong with the Democrats these days. I think she just created an untold amount of Trump supporters with that classless gesture. (Plus AOC not even showing up and Tlaib walking out.)
Sorry we didn’t get to many of your questions with Larry but I’ll respond to some directly today. Also I’ll do a solo livestream after the debate on Friday and make sure I get to as many as possible.
Feel free to share more thoughts about last night right here...
The Democrats can’t run a caucus in Iowa but want to run the economy, healthcare and the environment.
Reminder! We are live immediately after the State of the Union with my man Larry King!
One of the main reasons I started Locals.com was because it’s impossible to run a business with YouTube as a partner. They just demonetized the full episode with Michael, by manual review. Without subscribers like you we could actually lose money by doing more shows. You guys are the engine that’s keeps us going. So thank you!
Hanging at home with Emma this weekend as @davidjanet is away with family. Will be a lot of this position. (For both of us.)
You guys doing anything good? Fun Super Bowl plans?
Fanciest garage you’ve ever seen? About to tape with Mike Huckabee for his show. As of last week we have some new tech which allows us to do broadcast quality TV streams from here instead of me having to go to the local affiliates. With LA traffic that literally saves me hours in a given day. All thanks to your support!
“Sir, I’ve discovered the cure to the Coronovirius! We can create an intitiode and spread it worldwide within 12 hours.”
“Bob, we’ve told you repeatedly if you aren’t a non-binary latinx disabled lesbian you’re not allowed to talk.”
People are absolutely loving this chat with Michael Malice. How many of you picked up on his Tulsi Gabbard outfit?!
Jazz and coffee to start the morning right. I know there’s been some discussion here about how you guys like your coffee. I do fresh ground beans in the French Press, a scoop of collagen protein, 1/2 teaspoon of Lion’s Mane and a splash of almond milk. You?
Got Michael Malice and Benny Johnson in studio today...
Emma update: On steroids now, responding really well. Huge appetite, lots of energy. Will report for Spring Training with Yankees.
Can’t stop thinking about Kobe. Hard to fathom how life can be gone just like that. Another reminder to appreciate it while you got it...
Horrific news out of CA. Kobe Bryant has died in a helicopter crash. The man was a true competitor and an absolute legend. So sad...
Galley copies of “Dont Burn This Book” just arrived. Suddenly this feels really real!
Pre-order yours today!
Don't Burn This Book: Thinking for Yourself in an Age of Unreason
Lots of you asking for Emma update. She’s on steroids now which are working ridiculously well. (Knock on wood.) Lots of energy, crazy appetite and cracking smiles now and again!
Chuck Schumer thinks an invisible man is sitting in his seat at the impeachment hearings. (Rumor has it the invisible man is the Democrats star witness.)
AOC accidently let the truth slip today. “I don’t want your money as much as we want your power.”
Scratch a progressive, find a Thanos.
Surprised @davidjanet with a three hour road trip to see Frankie Valli last night. Not bad for 85 years young!
Have to say what I’m enjoying about the community here more than anything else is that I can see people slowly sharing more and more about themselves. Social media connected all of us, then seemingly turned us all against each other. I really think we’re starting to fix it with this test run for what Locals will build.
First new Locals creators announced next week and then a few more in February. And yes, we are working on all the features you’re asking about: Live video, instant messenger, group chat and more. Stay tuned!
In case you missed our post debate show here it is.
I’m thinking of doing more of these with a bigger panel and also Skyping in you guys to share thoughts and comments. Does that interest you?
Have you guys seen this incredible video from Iran? College students refusing to step on American and Israeli flags as they chant anti regime slogans. Beyond powerful...
Holy shmoly, did you guys see Ricky Gervais’ monologue at The Golden Globes last night? Wokeness just took a major hit. Working on getting him in for an interview...
Sunday brunch. (Now 11 and a half months into cancer diagnosis after being given 2 weeks to 5 months last February.)
Love to see some of your pets!
Intersting piece by Mike Doran in The NY Times about the Iran situation. The “experts” who always get everything wrong are out in full force today. Mike usually seems on point. Thoughts?
