Actually I am elated to see this topic get some wider exposure than just on my little corner of the R> Lower Member Feed:
…it says something about Rogan that he’s not afraid to continue to take on topics that might set them off — such as going after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her husband for their profiting from stock options while they are in the position of promoting and regulating things that will affect the value of those options. …

So what was the response from the Pelosi team over these concerns? Her spokesperson, Drew Hamill, treats Americans questioning this as though they’re stupid.
She “does not own any stocks,” he claimed. “As you can see from the required disclosures, with which the Speaker fully cooperates, these transactions are marked ‘SP’ for Spouse. The Speaker has no prior knowledge or subsequent involvement in any transactions.”
More accurately, her spokesman treats the questions as if he knows there is absolutely no chance that a rogue member of the reliably incurious press might actually diagram that ridiculous statement and figure out just how meaningless the “denial” is. There is great power…and corruption…in such confidence. (As I type that, I am reminded of a line from Monica Lewinsky: “If you want to know what power looks like, watch a man safely, even smugly, do interviews for decades, without ever worrying whether he will be asked the questions he doesn’t want to answer.” — Monica Lewinsky. But I digress.)
But, again, thanks for the help Joe:
(Of course, the real thanks should go to Peter Schweizer. In addition to his long record on this, his name came up just yesterday on another issue. (Note: Read the comments also to get to that reference.)
For the record, even as an admitted fan of News Radio, I still have no plans to start watching Joe Rogan. If I did, I might have to admit that I actually know what a podcast is. … Not. Going. To. Happen.Published in
