Thank you to everyone who paid the ultimate price in order for the rest of us to live freely. Now it’s on us to make sure we never give up that right.
Happy Memorial Day, everyone.
Who else dare make the commitment with me not to view any political content on this fine Sunday? I’m gonna stay off all social media but will check in with you guys now and again. C’mon you can do it!
Anyone got a lesser known sci fi or action movie to check out tonight? What have you watched lately that you really liked, or is there something you’ve been meaning to watch? We hit a wall on movie choices last night...
What’s on your mind on this Friday morning? This is my last day of totally crazy press for the book before things get a bit back to normal. (Well, I mean I’m still trapped in my house, but otherwise normal.)
I’ve been saying the silver lining to the whole lockdown is that people who would’ve never woke up to government authoritarianism are now doing so. You guys agree? Seeing any personal stories like that?
Don’t worry guys, The NY Times is on it!
(Pictures 2 and 3 are smoked ribs and a blackened tri-tip from last week. Hit piece incoming!)
Flash t-shirt sale in honor of the pandemic response by our brilliant media and leaders.
The shirt will only be available for 48 hours.
Code PANDEMIC will get you 20% off which is at cost for us. Only for Rubin Report community members!
Check the cool American flag on the back...
Very sad to hear of the passing of a great spiritual leader and intellectual titan, Ravi Zacharias. We sat down last fall:
Wondering what you guys think about fleeing a lockdown state v. staying and fighting. Basically every conversation I’m having right now keeps coming back to this...
How was your weekend?
I tended to our makeshift garden which now has cucumbers, bell peppers, broccoli, zucchini, lettuce and tomatoes. If this is the end of the world we’ll at least be eating enough fiber during it...
Happy Sunday everyone.
Noticed these flowers in our backyard look like the Covid structure. Should I do a citizens arrest of myself?
What are you guys up to this weekend? Seems we’ll get varied responses depending on what state (or country) you’re in. We’re still locked down in CA, so it’ll be dog walks and movies for us. Plus making @davidjanet’s Simple Whole Roasted Chicken tonight. Anyone wanna try it out with us?
Full interview with Senator Rand Paul is already up in the Content Section. Just click the play button down below. Part 1 will be available on YouTube later today.
Membership has its rewards!
Will be on Hannity at the top of the show tonight along with Dan Bongino. Fox is blowing up my phone lately. Hmm!
Sitting down (virtually) with Rand Paul today. I don’t normally do this, but in light of the general craziness, do you guys have any specific questions you’d like me to ask him?
Another day of nonstop press about to begin. Have everything I need: Book, chapstick, lint roller, coffee and dog barking loudly in my face.
Nice write up about the book that expands on some of the ideas and offers useful insight. (The beginning about Wikipedia is of particular note.)
Staggeringly blatant misinformation by Chuck Todd on Meet the Press yesterday. Check out the comments they edited v. what Barr actually went on to say...
How was everyone’s weekend? I had my first actual day off in forever yesterday, which consisted of a Golden Girls marathon and FaceTime with my mom. @davidjanet made ridiculously good steak frites (of the garlic parmesan variety) last and Clyde stared but did not touch. What about you?
You asked, we delivered: Live Chat is now here. Just update your app to the latest version and you’re good to go. This will be a great addition for movie events, dinners, happy hour and more. Will test it out with you guys later today!
Let’s mix it up today. Everyone snap a pic of three books that have influenced you in the last year. (Plus a little self promotion never hurts!)
Live with Rob Smith on Instagram soon! Will be a little later than 5pm as I’m getting an illegal haircut 😮

More great work by @RoseAndFiddle!
Just confirmed that Don’t Burn This Book is now a New York Times bestseller on two separate lists and the only new non-fiction book to be added this week.
Endless thanks and love to those of you here in The Rubin Report community. You’ve been the fuel to the fire, so to speak.
Now this is what a true American hero looks like:
Stuck in the green room all day on country wide radio tour. Here’s some of my 80’s / 90’s gaming collection. You guys got any old school faves?
Let’s try something a little different. What are you all doing at this very moment? I have a 20 minute break between interviews, so signing book plates en mass.
And you? Photo responses if applicable!
Cast iron chicken parm ala @davidjanet. Recipe below. (Just took that pic 5 minutes ago!)
Trust me you wanna tune into The Greg Gutfeld show right now...special guest star about to appear....
Candace Owens just confirmed to me she has been suspended from Twitter for this tweet. As a private citizen if we can’t share our thoughts there we have entered a new phase of the information war. And if this somehow came from the government, we’ll then I assure you a lawsuit is coming.
(Unrelated I hope you’re all having a nice weekend, taking some walks, eating good food, and dare I say it, going to the beach, if possible!)
I hate to send you guys to Twitter, but Alex Jones’ latest rant is kinda worth it...
So we’re in the top 100 Kindle best sellers, which is almost all 99 cent romance novels, so that’s pretty impressive.
And our placement here is quite something. (Scroll!)
The moment I told Laura Ingraham that I mailed Brussels sprout seeds to Michigan and am now on the run from the law...
Instagram Live with Nicole Arbour at 5 pm pacific. Didn’t know her too well before she interviewed me for the book and found her to be totally fun, interesting and thoughtful. Think you’ll dig our chat!
Doing a ton of press and won’t share all of them but thought you might particularly enjoy this chat with @michaelmalice, who always has a unique way of looking at things...
Texas, Florida, Utah and Arizona are looking pretty good these days.
I’m really thinking of a beach trip this weekend. What insanity...
Hey guys, fear not I’ll go light on book promotion today! (And also a big welcome to all the new community members who joined after hearing about the community on Tucker Carlson last night.)
Quick favor, while we are crushing it on orders, the trolls are starting to attack the Amazon reviews. If you could take a moment and create an Amazon review that would be hugely appreciated. Only write what is true and honest...I’m not trying to game the system, just don’t want the bad actors to run the show.
Thanks in advance, and here’s the Amazon link:
Don't Burn This Book: Thinking for Yourself in an Age of Unreason https://www.amazon.com/dp/0593084292/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_EKCQEbD9P4DXQ
Talking to Tucker about Big Tech censorship and Don't Burn This Book.
Holy we are crushing it across the board, but at the top of pretty much every political category on Amazon. (The multiple spots are for hardcover, Audible and Kindle.)
Currently number 4 non-fiction in world. Joanna Gaines is ahead of me, but what that woman can do to transform a run down shack into a modern farmhouse is pretty amazing!
Reminder: We’re doing a live signing of Don’t Burn This Book at 9:25 am pacific / 12:15 pm eastern.
If you haven’t got your copy yet snag it here!
Submit questions below!
Pub date is finally here! Endless thanks to you guys for the nonstop support!
If you’d like to share some images and other fun stuff on social media, we’ve got a PR box just for community members. Click the link below and use password Clyde1. (Also includes a chapter sneak peak and audio file.)
Thanks again everyone!
Argh got bumped from Tucker because the Corona segment went long! Tucker didn’t want me to do a condensed segment for the book so we’ll do a longer segment, earlier in the show tomorrow. Oh well. Show biz!
Anyway the launch has been insanely successful and technically it doesn’t begin til tomorrow. In the meantime here are the back cover blurbs. Thanks for sticking with me everyone!
Live with Tucker Carlson in about 15 minutes. First of major media for Don’t Burn This Book.
Focusing on Chapter 8. Here’s a sneak peek...
Live in 10. Talking about the media (lack of) reaction to the Tara Reade sexual assault accusations against Joe Biden. If the media won’t do their job, I guess I have to!
Plus, as always, your questions on anything and everything. Shoot!
My third PragerU video, “The Bravery Deficit” was just released to coincide with tomorrow’s release (finally!) of Don’t Burn This Book. Would love to hear your thoughts!
”You kids don’t know how good you have it. Back in my day we had to climb uphill in 95 degree heat while weearing rubber gloves and a mask on to buy a bottle of tequila...”
Hope everyone is having a nice start to the weekend. Just noticed that our tiny garden is starting to show some broccoli, tomatoes and pepper. You guys growing anything?
In crazy book publicity mode. Have already chatted with Douglas Murray, Charlie Kirk and Dan Crenshaw today. Had 15 minute break and @davidjanet somehow whipped up this fancy Dover sole dish. Now chatting with Michael Malice...
While we faced a lot of pressure to delay the publication of this book because of quarantine, I felt it was important to get these ideas out as soon as possible. My husband @davidjanet and I discuss this and much more in our first ever on camera discussion together.
I hope this book and special interview entertains and inspires you during the days and weeks ahead.
