#578 – Prime Time Alex Stein | Dave Portnoy, AOC, Blaze TV

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

God, I’m lucky. I’m so lucky. I thought I was gonna get you in. I thought I was like small time and I was gonna get you in the car again, but look it. I got you in a suit, uh, in front of the fireplace. We’re fucking

Alex Stein (00:13):

Bored. Yeah. I’m not doing good. I’m not doing good at all because I I’m going to, I’m going, I’m filling in for a week at OAN. Are you familiar with OAN?

Sevan Matossian (00:22):

No. Tell me, tell me

Alex Stein (00:24):

It’s like a news, you know, it’s like Fox news light or whatever, you know, they have like OAN news max, you know, it’s just, it’s a, it’s like a news organization, but it’s an independent news organization. So of course, you know, they’ve gotten in trouble for saying stuff about the election and they got kicked off. Uh, they were on Verizon, they’re on all the fires and they got kicked off that for talking about the election or whatever, even though it was the best election ever. I know we can’t say much on YouTube, but I’m filling in for their primetime host this week. Yes. Dan ball. So I’m going to San Diego for a week and you think it’d be a big, how, how

Sevan Matossian (00:58):

I’m I’m tripping. How, how are you gonna play that?

Alex Stein (01:02):

Be dead serious. I’m gonna have some goofy guests, but I just, I mean, and I’m not really stressed about that. I’m excited to do that, but I’m gonna be outta town for five nights. I just, and then I gotta have a cat. I gotta have people come here and take care of my cats, my dogs. That’s what I get stressed about. I’m excited to go there for a week, but I got a book, a bunch of guests too.

Sevan Matossian (01:20):

Yeah, this is awesome. But, but, um, I’m so cur yeah. The cats are a serious issue that, that fires up your OCD, right?

Alex Stein (01:28):

Yeah. A little bit. And my OCDs, like basically gone away. I don’t even really have that bad OCD, but I just know, well, this is why

Sevan Matossian (01:34):

If well, let’s label it something else. Your cat love. How about that cl?

Alex Stein (01:38):

Yeah. And that is a little bit, and it’s fun. I cannot forget about that. I cannot stop eating. I have, and I’m doing, I am, dude. I am cannot stop. It is really bad. I haven’t been so, I mean, I quit smoking weed. I don’t drink alcohol. Congratulations. So I like, well, I appreciate that, but I almost can’t justify not eating cheese, fries, not eating pizza, not eating. I’ve been eating these cinnamon rolls every day. Now these they’re delicious. So I can’t stop eating cinnamon rolls.

Sevan Matossian (02:07):

What about, are, are you on the ground floor at your house? Do you share any walls with anyone? Like, are there any other, uh, are you in a condo where you share walls with anyone?

Alex Stein (02:15):

I’m in a duplex where I have the top half and somebody has the bottom half. Why? Oh,

Sevan Matossian (02:19):

That’s not good. Cause I was gonna say, you know what? You need to get what I do. I have this thing called an assault bike. Do you know what that is?

Alex Stein (02:25):

Yeah. I know. I do need to do an assault bite now and

Sevan Matossian (02:28):

I put he headphones on and I just watch and I, and I watch TV. So like prior to you coming on, you know, I get on the assault bike for 20 minutes. I put the headphones on and I have my phone there and I take notes, but then I’m exercising and then I drink a cup of coffee to kind of push away my hunger.

Alex Stein (02:43):

No, a hundred percent. I, I need to, you know, I, I used to be too much.

Sevan Matossian (02:47):

Masturbation will lead to hunger too, by the way.

Alex Stein (02:49):

Is that really true?

Sevan Matossian (02:51):

I think so. I,

Alex Stein (02:51):

I don’t, I don’t Jack off that that much, but that’s true. Jacking off makes you hungry.

Sevan Matossian (02:56):

Don’t you always like to like, just jerk off and then go like eat something like a, a peanut butter. I’ve heard that so much with the glass of milk.

Alex Stein (03:02):

I’ve heard that before, but I don’t know if I do after I crank it. If I do go and immediately eat, I probably go to sleep usually. Oh,

Sevan Matossian (03:08):

Well that’s

Alex Stein (03:09):

Good. Honestly, honestly, I’m just telling, I mean, if we’re just speaking here, but I have heard that where people, something about the orgasm makes you hungry or something or you wanna go eat. I don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (03:18):

I’m curious how so. I don’t, I’m I’m making this first number up the first time I met you. You had let’s say 6,000 YouTube subscribers. Then the second time we hung out, you had 142. Now you have, or maybe a hundred. Now you have like over 200. I wanna say like you’re at 2 42 on your YouTube channel and it’s all it it’s fucking hardcore. Sattire jackass by jackass. I don’t mean like your jackass. I mean referencing the, uh, comedy group, the show. Yeah, the

Alex Stein (03:50):

Group silo,

Sevan Matossian (03:51):

Um, hardcore with a, a intense activism component. And yet these people on a serious news show are like, Hey, come do our come anchor the show at, uh, OAN one America news network.

Alex Stein (04:07):

Yeah. Well they like it. Cuz I have, because of all the stuff you named, cuz I have a lot of social media followers now, so it helps them a little bit. They have me on. So, you know, I mean I obviously the, the show’s a serious news show, but obviously I’m gonna have a funny take on it. You know what I mean? So it’s not, it’s not do or die. Like I can’t be myself type like Dan ball, the host that hosted. He has a lot of personality too. I mean he’s more serious than me, but he, you know, goes off on tangents and it’s not like the normal news, you know? Uh,

Sevan Matossian (04:39):

The show looks

Alex Stein (04:40):

Good. CNN, there,

Sevan Matossian (04:42):


Alex Stein (04:42):

It’s a little more, there’s a little more opinion than just news in it.

Sevan Matossian (04:46):

God, I’m so excited for you. This is fucking awesome. Um, what are the, yeah, but

Alex Stein (04:50):

That’s not even big deal. Yeah, dude. That’s what I’m saying. The bla show then my bla show starts October 3rd and that’s the other thing is so now, and this is between you and me and all the people watching on the internet. So now I’m in the negotiation, uh, stages with the place and they already had me under a contract as a contributor, which I signed in February. So they have right. A first refusal of any shows I do. And so we’ve been talking about this show for a while for like now about four months and it’s about to finally happen. It’s gonna be a pimp on a blimp, the prime time Alex Stein show. Is

Sevan Matossian (05:23):

That what it’s gonna be called?

Alex Stein (05:25):

The prime time Aine show? Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (05:27):

Oh, oh no, not the pimp on a blimp.

Alex Stein (05:29):

No, but that’s, that’s a lot of the, a lot of the branding is pimp on a blimp. It actually looks really cool. I can’t wait for that to release. But um, the thing about the blaze though, and I mean, there’s only so much I can say, but I guess I can be honest is, is dude, they want to take over a lot of my, they want to have control full control over all my YouTube channels, which won the conspiracy castle. Well, but listen, one, the conspiracy castle, I was gonna take off YouTube anyway. It’s just they with the terms of services at any day, any time they could, you know, give me a strike and take that channel down. So I almost feel like that was, if you know, I that’ll always exist, I’ll put it on rumble or blaze wants to put it on their paywall. Like I I’ll always have it there, but it’s just with terms of service on YouTube, they can change their terms of service and then retroactively give you a strike. So I feel like that show, I kind of have to take off, but they want my Alex Stein channel and I don’t really wanna give ’em that Alex Stein channel. What

Sevan Matossian (06:23):

Does that mean give to them?

Alex Stein (06:25):

Well, I mean, it’d basically be like they’re in control over it. They’re in control over the monetization and everything of it, even though they’re gonna pay me more than it gets monetized for, but let’s say the channel blows up, you know, obviously they’re gonna be paying me more monthly than I’m earning from it and they they’re, you know, there’s other payments. They’re paying me a lot more than I just earned from that one channel. You

Sevan Matossian (06:44):

Get it back when, when you leave there.

Alex Stein (06:46):

Yeah. Supposedly I do get it back

Sevan Matossian (06:48):

And what if they it’s

Alex Stein (06:50):

Like, I’m leasing them. It’s like, I’m leasing them the channel, but I, but, and the reason why I want to keep it separate, they don’t want you to keep it separate. Cuz then like, oh, it kind of causes friction cuz then you’re trying to create content for this thing while we have you doing this,

Sevan Matossian (07:02):

I get that. I do get that. Yeah.

Alex Stein (07:04):

Which that does make sense. That does make sense. But you know, at the same time they also are smart.

Sevan Matossian (07:09):

They the two start competing for your time, right? Your station and the blaze work.

Alex Stein (07:14):

Yes, exactly. And then, but

Sevan Matossian (07:16):

You’re not really obsessed with your YouTube either. Your YouTube’s pretty casual. It’s not like you’re like, I work with this other guy, Andrew Hiller or even myself. And we’re like, we have to put something out every day. Your shit’s you’re not obsessed with it like that.

Alex Stein (07:27):

Yeah. And I kind of used to be, but I’ve slowed down ever since I’ve I used to be like nuts or I had to do a stream or go live every day and I prob I’m gonna have to get like that again cuz the play show four days a week. So really, and truly I’ve been kind of purposely not streaming and doing my shows, which I don’t know if that was now looking back if that’s that smart. Cuz now I’m a little rusty, but I mean I obviously I can talk all day, but I purposely was not doing a show cause I didn’t wanna risk getting strikes. Like with my small three minute stuff, I don’t really have to worry cause I can get it monetized and improve. But you know, when you have these long extemporaneous, you know, conversations with guests, like I ha usually have been doing the guests sometimes say something and I’ve gotten strikes in the past. So I’ve been really kind of the example,

Sevan Matossian (08:07):

What you could get a strike for. Like you said, we couldn’t, you can’t

Alex Stein (08:09):

Say anything about the election. You can’t say anything about the election. It has to be fair. Just that it was fair and most secure election ever.

Sevan Matossian (08:16):

I can’t say. But there was that movie that showed us otherwise in that

Alex Stein (08:20):

You can’t even talk about 2000 dogs or whatever, I call something else. But yeah, no, you can get a strike that that’s that’s serious. Um, and the medical misinformation they’ve leaned they’ve they’ve uh, you know, backed off that a little bit, but that’s what I originally got my strikes for is mask stuff. I was anti talking about how I didn’t like the mask and I got medical misinformation. I

Sevan Matossian (08:39):

Did actually see that recently. YouTube said, uh, that you’re on their policy that you can’t say masks don’t work.

Alex Stein (08:47):

You can’t, I don’t think can say that.

Sevan Matossian (08:49):

No, I don’t understand how a video streaming platform gives two fucks about that.

Alex Stein (08:56):

It’s because they’re the biggest streaming platform. So they just, it’s all about control. It’s like the same reason of, you know, the reason why they put in vaccine mandates is not for safety or health. So less people get it. It’s so more people comply to the regulation. Do you see what I’m saying? I

Sevan Matossian (09:14):

Hear you. But

Alex Stein (09:15):

They admit that though, they admit that it’s

Sevan Matossian (09:18):

Not compliant. You act like that. There’s this sentient being

Alex Stein (09:20):

There is it’s called big pharma. It’s called the CEOs of these companies. You don’t realize dude, even the top hundred companies are probably ran by like the same 15 people. Uh, yeah, there is

Sevan Matossian (09:32):

The same way. Like, um, like the executives over at blaze would meet these 15 people are like, they have their own club that they meet and then they try to rule plan

Alex Stein (09:41):

Theoretically, theoretically. Yes. I mean, if you, I

Sevan Matossian (09:44):

Kind of can’t blame them, right? Like if, if, if me and you were the two richest guys on the planet, we’d probably hang out more.

Alex Stein (09:51):

Well, yeah. I mean they go to sun valley, Idaho, and then they have Davos. Those are the events that we know. But uh, you know, uh, you’ve you’ve heard of Alex Jones going to Bohemian Grove where like a bunch of, you know, presidents, important people go there and they do gay sex and they do like weird refugees. Yeah. That’s the big thing. Yeah. Sovan, you didn’t know that they had do the gay sex, so they have rituals. So they videotape a guy. Why,

Sevan Matossian (10:13):

If you’re rich, would you have gay sex? Why not just do the sex you want? I guess maybe they wanna do it

Alex Stein (10:19):

That, and it’s called honey potting. Like they want to get footage of you with a child or you with like a guy. So it’s embarrassing. So then they have leverage. That’s why it’s like Gale Maxwell’s dad is a guy named Robert Maxwell and he was killed. They got thrown off his boat. And then when he died, they gave him a proper Israeli funeral because he was a side agent. And what he would do is he was the one that started all the Jeffrey Epstein and gal, Elaine Maxwell stuff. He would get these important people and he would honey pot them. This is in James Bond. You’ve ever seen James Bond.

Sevan Matossian (10:48):

I have

Alex Stein (10:49):

How they always have like the sexy woman that tries to have sex with the person. And she’s a SP yeah. Yeah. That’s real. That’s real. I know that sounds crazy. But no,

Sevan Matossian (10:58):

It doesn’t sound crazy. Do I, I remember reading in, in, I don’t remember if it was, uh, in the Washington post or the New York times or the LA times, but it was one of the liberal rags and they, they started planting the seeds of a story that, um, uh, Donald Trump went to Moscow and he stayed at the Ritz Carleton

Alex Stein (11:17):

And he got PE on. That was all fake. Yeah. Yeah. And

Sevan Matossian (11:20):

That was all fake, but isn’t it amazing that the left came up with that idea that the newspapers were planting those seeds. So that, that would be honey potting. Right? They were accusing Donald Trump of being honey potted. If I can conjugate it. Well,

Alex Stein (11:34):

That’s just a lie. Yeah. But that’s more just a lie. Like a honey pot is where you would get an attractive woman and she would trick you like Eric Swalwell dated a Chinese SP he didn’t know about, are you familiar with that? Yep.

Sevan Matossian (11:45):

Yep, yep.

Alex Stein (11:45):

Yep. That’s more of a honey pot because he thought, oh, this is just this pretty Asian girl likes me. And

Sevan Matossian (11:50):

Then they say, Hey, you have to vote this way or we’re gonna tell your wife,

Alex Stein (11:54):

Oh, well, yeah, we’ll leak your Dick pics.

Sevan Matossian (11:57):

Wow. And that doesn’t would

Alex Stein (11:59):

You do it? If they had my, if they had a picture of like a DDO up my butt, I, you know, as a Congressman, I’d probably do whatever. They, I don’t know that he did that. I’m just saying, that’s why they make you do those weird stuff. Um, and they take pictures of it. That’s why I, that’s why, uh, that’s how Scientology works. That’s why they get in these big celebrities and they can’t ever leave because they have, ’em do these, these auditing sessions where they they’re all recorded. And, and these people say the most embarrassing stuff.

Sevan Matossian (12:23):

I can’t believe that if they have so many of those one, person’s just not like, okay, fuck it. Yes. I watch midget porn. I’m guilty. Uh, but you have to know there’s this. And then they out the, the undercover group.

Alex Stein (12:35):

Well, that does happen. But then see, see, you gotta look at there’s people like Seth, rich, are you familiar with Seth rich?

Sevan Matossian (12:41):


Alex Stein (12:41):

Seth rich, well, you really need to look up Seth rich, but he was, he worked for Bernie and he was the one that leaked all the stuff about Hillary Clinton’s emails. And, uh, you know, was never confirmed, but he’s supposed to be the one that gave it to Julian as assigns Julian ASTA and Seth, Seth rich was murdered outside of his place in Washington, DC, Soly Robb. They didn’t take his Rolex or his wallet.

Sevan Matossian (13:02):

Seth Conrad. Rich. Holy shit. Holy shit.

Alex Stein (13:08):

Well, so this guy was just murdered. He was a huge American, he was a Democrat. He was a Bernie bro. And uh, he gave out, he was, you know, robbed in, in front of his apartment, you know, his phone, his wallet and his expensive watch. They didn’t take it. So, so there’s a thing called the clean body. Count. The people that do blow the whistle they get murdered. And you’re actually, you know, this is how a lot of this is how it works. So princess Diana, do you think that she just died in a car accident?

Sevan Matossian (13:35):


Alex Stein (13:37):

You think it was just, you think it was just all accidental?

Sevan Matossian (13:40):

I just think that there were reporters chasing her and her and the rich dude got in the car accident. The dude died too. Right? The rich guy.

Alex Stein (13:46):

No, no, no, no. He lived, uh, uh, he did. What was he? Well, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. That was, uh, you’re talking about, I’m talking about the, the guy in the front seat, the, the secret service agent, the, that was Dody Fyed. But so this is what happened in the, in that, in that thing, she was supposedly pregnant with a mu with Dody Fayette’s kid in the, you know, prince Phillip. They didn’t want that because that would be embarrassment to the monarchy because then the kids would be half brothers with, with some Muslim people that they wouldn’t like that. So what happened was they said that they had to kill her. And that’s how this works is the reason why they kill her in Paris. France is when an American and a I six for UK, they have a thing called, um, you know, diplomatic community.

Alex Stein (14:27):

So if they could commit a crime in a different country, they can actually commit the crime and get away with it. So that’s why we have spies. That’s why they’ll go. And they’ll kill an American diplomat. They killed an English, the, the queen, the queen of England. The reason why they kill her in Paris is because they can use their, my six agents to go commit a crime in Paris. And they have diplomatic community. And they don’t have to tell that’s like, in all these biceps, do that all the time, where they have an American person kill an am, another American person in, on, in a foreign place.

Sevan Matossian (14:59):

And that’s what happened. Those weren’t reporters chasing her. That that was

Alex Stein (15:03):

You. Did you not hear how long it took her to get to? And dude Google the story. It took her nearly an hour for them to get from the scene of the accident, to a hospital. And they passed about 14 hospitals on the way to the one they went to,

Sevan Matossian (15:17):

What the fuck? Look at people in the comments, like, know what you’re talking about? Look at this lady. This, I know I over 100 people on the Clintons.

Alex Stein (15:26):


Sevan Matossian (15:27):

How do you explain? Okay, so they have a daughter, right? What’s her name? Chelsea hit

Alex Stein (15:31):

Chelsea. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (15:33):

When do you tell a kid? Uh, there’s something you need to know? Like, does she know?

Alex Stein (15:39):

I don’t know if you tell, but it’s kind of like, um, I don’t

Sevan Matossian (15:44):

Know, like my dad never told me he owned a wine and cheese store. I just kind of knew.

Alex Stein (15:48):

Yeah. Well that’s what I was gonna say is like kind of the bail, my business, my dad kind of never like told me the bail, my business, but I, I mean, I guess he kind of did when I got into it, but, um, I think you just kind of Aw, through osmosis being, but she was probably not near her parents that much. They were probably busy. She probably was always with a babysitter or a freaking secret service agent or something. But still dude, I guarantee you, Chelsea Clinton knows her mom is an evil bitch. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (16:12):

Ann heck was never killed either. They killed her because of the Petto movie she was working. That

Alex Stein (16:16):

Was weird. Did you see her where she got in that fire? And then she lifted up out of the burn bag and they put her

Sevan Matossian (16:21):

Back in it. Oh, that I did see that. And I was actually telling someone about that and they thought I was bad. They were telling me I was bat shit crazy. And they’re sitting right next to me and I’m like, well, here’s the video. And they refused to look at it. It was a person like, just like me and you talking.

Alex Stein (16:33):

I know. And, and like, I, I wouldn’t be surprised half the time at this hospitals when they, but

Sevan Matossian (16:39):

Hey, that was a burn bag. That wasn’t a body bag. Right. Still,

Alex Stein (16:43):

It was a burn bag, but she came right out of it. Like, well, let her breathe. She probably couldn’t breathe inside of a bag. I don’t even care if there’s holes in the bag. Um, but I, I wouldn’t be surprised. They killed her, trying to intubate her at the hospital. They don’t half those people at the hospital. If you go to the hospital, you’re screwed. They they’re all nurses from some other city. They don’t know. They don’t care. They’re just trying to,

Sevan Matossian (17:02):

You think they killed Washington? You think they, I don’t know who they is. Killed George Washington. What

Alex Stein (17:07):

Through leges.

Sevan Matossian (17:07):

Yeah. Or do you think that was just bad medical practice?

Alex Stein (17:10):

Well, it’s been bad medical practice ever since. I mean, we don’t really have great medical practice. I mean, I know we have, and I say that as a guy, the guy, my dad had a, you know, quadruple bypass surgery and that doctor did a great job. I really respect him. So there are some doctors, you know, I’m sure this, but

Sevan Matossian (17:24):

Your mom, your mom didn’t get good healthcare

Alex Stein (17:26):

Ex exactly. My mom didn’t get it. And I’m just saying there, there are a few specialists out there that are good, but the majority of people in the, in the medical industry, I think are just trying to literally get a check or try to do it for a steam. They’re not actually in it to try to help people. So I’ve, I’ve lost a lot of respect for the,

Sevan Matossian (17:45):

When I work at CrossFit. Go ahead.

Alex Stein (17:48):

Well, I was just gonna say, no, we’re talking about all these conspiracies. Yeah. I mean the fact that yeah, you know, you’re kind of, you know, you’re, I guess, whatever, um,

Sevan Matossian (17:56):

Naive, naive

Alex Stein (17:58):

And naive would be a good word, but I think if you saw a lot of this, a lot of this information, it’d almost be impossible to continue to be naive. Like you it’d be cognitive dissonance at that point, cuz you would know that the government does bad stuff and you’re just taking their word for it. But that, that, that’s where we’re at though.

Sevan Matossian (18:12):

Here’s here’s where you and I differ just a little bit. I don’t see it as they or the government or as I, I need to see the, I just think there’s this Dawa saying there are no demons here. There’s only people. And I think when I hear about these abstractions being used, like these and the government, I, I feel like that is the seeds of the cognitive dissonance because it’s really just like other dudes and chicks.

Alex Stein (18:39):

Yeah. But not really because the federal government is actually retarded. And so when these people get in the power of the federal government, they feel like they have to do this stuff that they don’t even know what they’re doing. They feel like they’re better than us. I’m telling you these people, when they get elected into this, into this position, whether it’s some lower level politics, even if it’s city council, I see these city councilmen, they get their biggest ego. I see these mayors, they have the, of, of a Podunk town. They have these huge egos. So then when you become, when you get in Congress and now you’re in that fraternity, I’m telling you, you feel like you’re in a special club that most people aren’t in. And when you have listen, this is all you gotta look at. Uh, so this is a fact less than 1% of the population has 99% of the wealth follow me less than 1% of the population has the mass majority of the wealth.

Alex Stein (19:26):

So we have it’s, it’s totally skewed against us by these people that hold all the power and wealth. There is basically no middle class left. And that’s because the middle class still has power can still do stuff. They’re deleting the middle class. You think about it. When our parents were alive, how much easier it was to buy a house. Now it’s almost impossible to buy a house, to buy a single family home. When you look at all the corporations like BlackRock, artificially inflating, the price of homes, but they’re buying it. China is one of the biggest landowners in America and also bill gates being one of the biggest landowners. Who’s not even doing anything with the land, not even growing food on him. So the idea that like this government isn’t rigged against people, then why don’t they make it where we can have a middle class?

Alex Stein (20:03):

Why do they, why everybody’s struggling with, with uh, fentanyl drug overdoses, people are struggling, you know, able to barely able to afford to fill up their gas, uh, tank in their car. If they’re gonna give a hundred billion dollars with Ukraine. I mean, there’re, you have to realize that. And these people get in power. They don’t, they’re not people anymore what’s happens is they’re being run by these multinational corporations, these political action committees that donate money to them. So they go from being a human like you and me being like GE you know, it’s good to share my toys. It’s good to be nice to people, to all of a sudden, oh, Halliburton, uh, you’re gonna gimme a million dollars for me to pass this legislation. That’s gonna buy a bunch of rockets and kill a bunch of drones. You know, do a bunch of drone tricks in the middle east and kill a bunch of Muslims at a wedding. Sure. Let’s do it. That sounds like a good deal. And that’s literally what happens. I mean, you look at guys like Dan Crenshaw, you look at Barack Obama, he dropped a drone strike every 20 minutes for eight years. There’s footage.

Sevan Matossian (20:54):

Is that true? Is that true?

Alex Stein (20:55):

That’s a true, yes. Anyone in Nobel peace wise. That’s a fact he dropped enough drones for every 20 minutes for eight years. Google that. And then on top of that, sometimes the drone strikes would say, let’s say there’s three people. They would say, oh, just shoot the first two people. So the third person could go tell ’em what happened. That’s how evil these drone strikes were. They shot up, they shot up weddings. They shot up funerals. They killed kids. When we were doing that, when we were just withdrawing from Afghanistan, they killed six children. You don’t remember that? That just happened. They said, oh, oh, is an accident. Oh, he is an accident. We killed all these children. I don’t think that’s okay. I don’t care who you are, whether you’re pro-war or not. I’m anti-war but I don’t think it’s okay for children to get shot by weapons that I paid for. That makes me feel sick. I mean, I

Sevan Matossian (21:40):

It’s always gonna happen soon as you start building weapons, always. There’s no way around it. What

Alex Stein (21:46):

Children are gonna die because we build weapons.

Sevan Matossian (21:48):

It’s like the death penalty, right? Alex? No, uh, two terms and 540 strikes later. Obama leaves the white house after having vastly expanded and normalizing the use of armed drones for counter-terrorism it’s like this, you know that if they, you know, that, uh, if we arm 1 million police officers on the streets of this country, there’s gonna be, there’s gonna be some killing. It’s just, it’s gonna happen. Accidental, killing. It’s like the death penalty, if you believe in the death penalty, which I don’t eventually some

Alex Stein (22:18):

Yeah. Don’t know

Sevan Matossian (22:18):

Either. Yeah. Eventually someone’s a good, person’s gonna get killed on accident. Like it, uh, you know what I mean? And

Alex Stein (22:23):

It’s happened. Yeah. That’s already happened. That’s why I’m against. Yeah. Yeah. I agree. I don’t like the death penalty on TV. I mean, unless it’s under some sort of serious heinous thing, but yeah, I really don’t like the, the death penalty because if one person has been killed unjustly, it makes the whole thing crooked. But that’s dude, we can use that analogy for everything. I mean, you know, unjust people get killed all the time. Uh, you can look at, uh, you know, what is it? Uh, uh, pat Tillman who was, you know, one of the, one of the best football players. Yeah, yeah. You remember him? Yeah. And he was shot. He was shot under friendly fire. And you know how they say that that’s a conspiracy, his wife doesn’t believe that it was accidental because he was sending letters, talking about how the war didn’t have a clear objective and how it was pointless. And so imagine he goes, he goes and serves his term and then comes back and says, it’s all bullshit. How big of a threat, a pro football player who turned down his multimillion dollar contract, 24 million contract for him to say the war was bullshit. That would’ve been, I mean, they, they wouldn’t have been able to get over that public relations nightmare.

Sevan Matossian (23:23):

This, this sentence doesn’t even make sense seven, but you believe in killing unborn children. Sean, if you’re gonna attack me, make it fucking coherent. That doesn’t even fucking make sense.

Alex Stein (23:33):

He’s talking about, he’s talking about abortion.

Sevan Matossian (23:35):

I know what he’s trying to say. I’m not gonna read into it. Go ahead. Say what you really wanna say. <laugh> dickhead.

Alex Stein (23:41):

No. Uh, well don’t pull it up. The haters, you know, the haters in the chat are gonna no, it’s early. Wait

Sevan Matossian (23:47):

That guy’s not a, a hater. I like that guy. Go

Alex Stein (23:49):

Ahead. Wait, why are we, why are we doing this so early on Sunday morning again,

Sevan Matossian (23:53):

Because for you, it’s only nine.

Alex Stein (23:55):

Yeah. It’s not that bad, but I’m still just getting out. I gotta, I gotta get all my crap in order. I leave tomorrow for San Diego and you’re in LA,

Sevan Matossian (24:02):

Right? I’m in, I’m in, uh, Santa Cruz, California,

Alex Stein (24:04):

Santa Cruz. You’re

Sevan Matossian (24:05):

Not one of I’m in a small hive of lib tars.

Alex Stein (24:08):

Yeah. But whatever. I mean, honestly, dude, that’s the other thing is like, you know, now that I’m getting known and people are like, you’re all right, first of all, I’m not all right. I mean, there’s some sort of liberal values that I kind of vibe with. Like, I don’t know if we should have free socialized medicine, but we should have caps. We should have where these pharmaceutical companies can’t be making so much money. I mean, if you look at the price of insulin in Texas, $200, but insulin in Mexico is

Sevan Matossian (24:32):

$2 socialist. You’re socialist.

Alex Stein (24:34):

That’s what I’m saying. You know? And you know, and a lot of this, like drag your kids to story time. Now that yeah, I

Sevan Matossian (24:40):

Told you, this guy loves me. Even though he taxed me, he loves me. He was just trying to dry fuck me without the loop.

Alex Stein (24:46):

But what I’m saying is like, I don’t, I don’t like any of this, this sexual indoctrination for children, but I don’t care if drag Queens have their drag queen brunch for adults. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (24:53):

Mean neither.

Alex Stein (24:53):

Exactly. Yeah. I don’t care. Exactly.

Sevan Matossian (24:55):

Yeah. And I, and I love pesto and I, and I love going to a, um, a play with drag Queens, but, but the gay flag in front of my, um, school as an excuse for freedom and acceptance. Oh

Alex Stein (25:07):

No, I know. It just seems, it seems kind nuts,

Sevan Matossian (25:08):

But oh

Alex Stein (25:09):

No. But uh, I wanna the indoctrination, oh, go ahead.

Sevan Matossian (25:13):

I wanna, I wanna talk, say something about, and I think this ties into, I think we’re gonna get to the bottom of this, of the government. Those guys, when I worked for CrossFit, Greg Glassman would always say, I will ex and, and he, he, he was, uh, the foundation of CrossFit is nutrition and then movement to increase to let your DNA express itself in the greatest way fucking possible. So at 50 you fucking look like me, like a fucking little Armenian God, little dwarf, God. And, um, he, uh, what’s so funny. Uh, he said that,

Alex Stein (25:45):

God, I think that’s a thing. Sorry guy.

Sevan Matossian (25:48):

He, he said that, oh, you should pop, uh, Google, uh, bimp pimp on a blimp to Caleb, uh, Khali, sorry. I’m changing your name, Caleb to Khali. I think it’s more inclusive. Um, he said that he would accept sponsorships from Malborough Coca-Cola anybody, but no matter what, he’ll keep telling the truth. So if Malborough wants to sponsor us, he’s gonna say, Hey, if you touch these, you’re a fucking idiot. If Coca-Cola sponsors, he just doesn’t wanna be gagged. And when this coffee company paper street coffee sponsored me, I said, Hey, I don’t drink your fucking coffee. And they’re like, I don’t care. I love your show. I go, what if I talk shit about your coffee? They’re like, I don’t care. I just wanna give you money to let you keep talking. I’m like, well, fuck. Well that I wanna, so that’s what you’re saying. You’re saying people get paid and then they turn into horrors and they’ll defend and stand for anything, which brings me to this douche bag. And I, and I feel bad calling him a douche bag, but that’s what Dave Porto basically admits.

Alex Stein (26:46):

He definitely admits that he

Sevan Matossian (26:48):

Admits that he was bought off to not tell the truth anymore.

Alex Stein (26:53):

He says he was an employee of his own company. Say

Sevan Matossian (26:56):

That again? Yeah.

Alex Stein (26:57):

A, he admits that he’s an employee now of his own company that he started. So listen, he did a great thing, started a great deal. And I know he helped out a lot of people at this re restaurant. Uh, but you know, I also use it as a tax writeoff but neither here nor there for, for, but the problem with, uh, Dave Portnoy is that he’s so out of touch with the reality, he started it off. Is this bar stool thing for stools? You know, the com it was like made for the common man by the common man. And then when he was arguing with me, he uninvited me on his podcast. He’s like, oh, I, well,

Sevan Matossian (27:25):

Wait, you’re invited. And then uninvited tell me that story.

Alex Stein (27:28):

Yes. Yes. So, so, so you know, I, you know, him and I had beef, right?

Sevan Matossian (27:31):

That’s what I’m talking about. He basically, I have this clip of this show you were on. And he says, Hey, we have a rule since we’re owned by a gambling company that we can’t talk shit about gambling. That’s fucking bullshit. That’s fucking, when we, when CrossFit signed a 350 million deal with Reebok, the next month, Reebok released a shoe saying it made your ass firmer. And Greg goes, fuck you. That doesn’t do shit. No shoe can help you at all. And Reebok goes, you’re not being a good partner. He goes, you didn’t sign up with me to be a good partner. You signed up with me because I tell the truth. Yeah. And important. I supposed to kind of represent that, do that. He, he basically just admitted that he could be bought

Alex Stein (28:10):

Dude. And they showed the most degenerate gambling stuff where people would be like on their computer or they live stream it. And they bet like all they have on a hand of blackjack and they’re like, and then they win it. They’re like, ah, I mean, that’s almost worse. Uh, you know, they, they have all kinds of, of weird gambling content. But my point being is like only showing the wins and not being able to say there’s losses that’s as, as scummy as it gets.

Sevan Matossian (28:35):

Uh Jeffson. You’re great. Uhoh here comes this shit sandwich. This guy’s making me a shit sandwich, but this instead incessant, Greg Glasson listen, motherfucker. I’m not worshiping him. If you, is

Alex Stein (28:48):

He the creator of CrossFit? Is he the creator of

Sevan Matossian (28:50):

It? Yeah. Brilliant dude. Fucking awesome. But just because I, I quote him doesn’t mean I’m worshiping him. You jackass you next. Think I’m next. You’re gonna think I’m worshiping you because I pulled up your comment. Go ahead. Wait,

Alex Stein (29:03):

Why is there so much, uh, CrossFit hate? I mean, uh, you know what I mean? What is it? They say, like being a vegetarian and being a vegan is like being CrossFit. You can’t go one minute without telling anybody, uh,

Sevan Matossian (29:14):

It’s the, it’s the ultimate expression of, uh, personal accountability and personal responsibility. It’s when you decide that you are going to basically take no, I

Alex Stein (29:25):

Get why it’s good.

Sevan Matossian (29:26):

So people, no, that’s why people hate it. It scares the shit out of them, scares the shit.

Alex Stein (29:30):

And it is hard and doing pullups is hard doing like the, you know, that stuff right there is hard. It’s not easy. I think that’s why, um, people are nervous. They see all those people, you

Sevan Matossian (29:41):

Know, doing it. They don’t wanna, uh, GE Jeff brings up a good point. Um, does someone understand that port port nine now works for a publicly traded company? So basically I guess if they’re, if someone could argue that they were put, they were attacking their own company, that that would be going against their fiduciary duty.
