    Joe Rogan is my hero, WWJRD.

  • Slap

    he tells it like it is. Good on him. Joe is the man.

  • Vipes

    So few American personalities have the balls to speak the truth, as unpopular as it is to 95% of the population. WTG Joe!

  • Kyle

    Sick compilation, audio/visuals coincide very well, good job. Its so true, what you say about when speaking your mind on the situation, you are accused of not supporting our troops and being ungrateful. Its amazing how shallow and quick to judge people can be.

  • orbitalantelope

    All bullshit. These guys are more sensationalist than the American Right. Popping up a load of captions is not the same as providing proof. Newspaper articles are not proof. I get it, I agree with them, but this is a shit film. Nobody should use these “documentaries” as a source of information.

    ok video just 10 years too late

  • Andre Bordeleau

    Oh my, I am impressed, I figured he was just a funny comic from “news radio” seems he knows what the real fear factor is! (sorry could not resist the punn) well ,you have at least that left in the U.S.A,the freedom of speach, perhaps till you get too loud and they silence you so they can keep their so called “life-style”.
    I always wondered why americans put up with the greedy fuckers on capital hill,and blindly trust the Prez ??? greastest country in the world? at what? greed? it was great when it was just…and that is a long time ago my friend. will be looking for Joe on youtube to hear more truth that unfortunatly will go nowhere ( till the revolution happens again)

    Joe says a lot of good things here. He makes a logical error than many people make when making critiques of the government. He fails to realize that he has seen through some smokescreens, but he hasn’t seen through all of them so he can’t jump to immediate conclusions. Are US contractors making huge profits from our overseas wars? Yes. Are US troops and mercenaries guarding Afghani opium fields? Yes. Can those two facts be used to assume that the US government decided to wage war on Afghanistan so that we could control and profit from the global heroine trade? Absolutely not. You could call it a possibility that it is so, but you can’t just go around recklessly claiming things like that. It is no different from the mainstream message manipulations he starts of ranting against. Why not use Occam’s razor and infer that the American style of capitalism created an atmosphere that was conducive to big corporations being able to quickly get into and profit from our foreign entanglements? Obviously anyone in charge knows this fact and weighed a money making potential in the decision to wage war, but it seems irresponsible based on the information we have to say that because war profiteering has occurred, was profiteering was the point of the war. The same goes for the poppy fields in Afghanistan, what is the simplest explanation? Is it that there is a vast government conspiracy to control Afghanistan’s opium production so that our government can hold the top rung of the world heroine market and we want that enough to start a possibly unwinnable war? Or could it be that controlling 90% of world opium production means a secure supply of opiate based medications on which the use of is the base of much of Western Medicine, especially the branch of sports medicine that keeps the athletes of MMA fighting (the sport to which Rogan owes his cultural relevancy to) able to compete in such a bodily taxing sport. I don’t like war and I don’t think that any group should be able to wage war on innocents in order to maintain a higher standard of living than the entire world. That being said I must admit that like Joe Rogan I am an American, and like every American I know it is really easy to stand up and complain about how corrupt our government is for killing Afghani citizens to control the flow of illicit drugs from the country but it is a whole different thing to consider the government might be trying to protect the flow of opium so that when a drunk driver blindsides you at 3am you don’t have to take only aspirin while the doctor gives you 22 staples in your head.

      You agree with the war profiteering and the opium control, but don’t think they are connected? If what you say is true and controlling opium was so good for us, then why are they being so deceptive about it? War. Oil. Drugs. You’re simply too fragile to accept it.

      And the shot about Rogan’s relevance just proves how weak you really are.

         I disagree – I think he makes a good point. the system is systemically opportunistic…

       We need to remember that the initial theory for the US gaining a “controlling interest” in afghanistan (in 2000) had too do with building another pipeline route through it, to better access the vast energy fields around azerbaijan.  The primary interest was “america’s energy future”, as well as an obvious perch to pressure iran from.  These are still strong interests with the energy policy makers in DC, but they’ve become a little gunshy to push as hard for it because of the negative PR that came with  that stalemated war.   (The civilian leadership has NOT learned any lessons from occupying vietnam, iraq and afhanistan, so are bound to repeat that in the future, as long as they can continue fooling 51% of the electortate to believe in “american exceptualism” and being “god’s right hand delivering freedom” around the world)

       Opium has never figured into any credible conspiracies because of it’s associated bad PR  and lack of any serious profits  (which may sound good to some, but is really peanuts).   Moving natural gas and oil through pipelines is so much more easier and profitable.   Big Pharma doesn’t need an unregulated opium industry started again in order to manufacture a quota of pain medications.

      The reason opium has had a comeback in afghanistan is because of the desperate situation the occupying force is in.  In order to show political progress there, some kind of economy has to rise from the rubble.  The opium crop is a known standby that can generate cash in a hurry, so the govt can collect taxes that pays for the almost impossible list of things they’ll need to survive after we leave there – and thats not counting having to continue fighting the taliban.  It will take decades to build alternate resources and access raw materials for export.   If there was any favoritism seen toward distributers and/or “protection” of their goods, it was in the interest of jump starting some kind of economic trade there and not to create a new industry to profit from.   That just isn’t worth it because of how easy it is to see through it these days — not to mention how it conflicts with  the vast amount of money being spent to suppress it.

      I think you have made a good point, but you fail to realise who your government is. Your government isn’t your beloved president or the people you vote for. Your government are the corporations, they are the people who make the decisions and run the USA. Sure, your government may not want to wage war for profit, but you better believe it that the corporations do. That is why it happens.

    War made it all easy to make money. The don’t care iif so 5, 50, 500, 5000 or 50’000 dies.
    The Georgia Guidestones tells that they only will 500’000’000 of all 7000’000’000 people on our earth to survive.
    Give every man a square kilometer, one million square meters. it will be 7 billion kvadtat kilometers. A single person can easily survive on what can be grown on this surface as large as twice the california.Earth has 510 million square kilometer area, including 146 million square kilometers of land, the rest water.Although only a third of the surface is arable, so it will be at least almost 43 billion square kilometers left.America’s surface is at 9.8 billion square kilometers, ie, it stays almost 4.5 times as much space as the entire United States.Then you might wonder why the alleged overpopulation, and why so many are starving in this world.// [email protected] in Sweden

    He perceives one thing precisely, wicked people are running the show. People of good will know better than to do this things. They die in their sins and the wicked deserve it. American servicemen used to like to be known as people who gave candy to starving children out of kindness, not raping Nanking. That has changed, obviously.

    Thanks, at least there are a few people who are genuinely worthy of respect. I went to Portsmith Federal Pen for refusing to be involved in any killing in Nam. I got my BCD for my crimes of refusing to shave and insubordination, and all the lousy job prospects they promise to make sure that’s what I get. Every  they really get into killing people, they throw me in jail. I  got all the blood on my hands Rosa Parks did. Zilch, she just sat there. I really don’t like being a a country that fakes freedom. Just try celebrating the 4th of July without some law cramping your style. Impossible.
