Ethan Bearman on The Rick Amato Show March 3, 2015


I had a great time joining The Rick Amato Show”s panel last night again on One America News Network with Republican activist Misty Ann Tienken, GOP strategist Dave McCulloch, and transgender activist Autumn Sandeen. We discussed Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech before Congress, California’s GOP officially recognizes the Log Cabin Republicans, Facebook suspends a 12 year old boy’s account after criticizing the President, and Scripps College now has 10 genders to choose from on paperwork!

I apologize for needing to use a camera to capture the show off the television, but electronic copy was not available.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu Speech March 3, 2015

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a speech to the U.S. Congress today regarding Iran’s nuclear ambitions and the deal the Obama administration is trying to make. I make the argument that politics played a big part in this but PM Netanyahu is almost entirely right. What do you think?

Islamofascists Murder 12 for Exercising Free Speech

Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 7.59.25 AM

Our core value of free speech has been under attack. Now free speech is physically under attack with the murder of 12 people, two of whom are police officers, at the offices of the satirical paper Charlie Hebdo in Paris, France by Islamofascists claiming to be part of Al Qaeda.

From The Guardian:

France Info radio has been speaking to witnesses, several of whom are journalists working at a press agency in the same building as the Charlie Hebdo offices.

“We heard shouting in the street,” one man, Benoit Bringer, told the station. “We saw hooded men carrying Kalashnikovs enter the building. We called the police. After a few minutes we heard heavy firing, a lot of firing. We went upstairs on to the roof.

“And then after about 10 minutes we saw two armed men come out into the street. Three policemen arrived on bikes but had to leave because the men were armed, obviously … There was a lot more shouting in the street, a lot more gunshots. The attackers took off in a car.”

France’s President François Hollande immediately called the attack terrorism. These 12 people were murdered for offending Islamists by publishing Mohammad cartoons, among other offenses.

Charlie Hebdo reprinted the Danish paper Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons in 2006. I recently interviewed the cultural editor of Jyllands-Posten, Flemming Rose, regarding his experiences coinciding with the release of his new book, “The Tyranny of Silence.”

Mr. Rose made a very important point in our interview. He said that we need to have insensitivity training in the interest of free speech.

You have the right to be offended.

According to Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, apostasy is renunciation of a religious faith and blasphemy is something said or done that is disrespectful to God or to something holy.

The Pew Research Center has a report detailing the countries which outlaw apostasy and blasphemy in the year 2012. This is just the list with apostasy laws: Afghanistan, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritania, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, United Arab Emirates, Yemen.

Do you see the common thread? Islam. There isn’t one Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Atheist, Shinto, Jewish, Zoroastrian, or Satanic country listed.

Now add in the fact that President Obama, like President Bush before him, has made every effort to call Islam the religion of peace. The majority of the followers of Islam practice the religion peacefully. The problem is that so many support these terror attacks.

For example, the Pew Research Center’s Muslim Americans found that 19% of American Muslims support suicide bombings (page 65) and 51% say that there is support for Islamic Extremism in the Muslim American Community (page 69).

Immigration is what The United States of America is built on. The U.S. already has the most welcoming legal immigration in the world. We allow over one million legal immigrants per year, which is more than all other countries on Earth combined. The problem is the U.S. has immigration policies which allow people who hate our freedom of speech to come here from their countries which ban free speech due to their religious sensitivities. Why?

There are two ways for us to address the horrible murders in Paris, France today. First, apply all diplomatic and cultural pressure on those countries listed above to accept freedom of religion, freedom of conscience, and freedom of speech. Second, pass legislation to cease all immigration of people who do not support our basic freedoms.

All freedom loving people deserve protection from these murderers. And you have the right to be offended, get over it.

$1.1 Trillion Spending Bill Passed Saturday Night and Both Parties Make Compelling Points


Ethan brings us up to speed on the $1.1 Trillion spending bill passed Saturday night in the halls of the capitol buildings in Washington D.C.

Only a corrupted process could spend that much money in a convoluted 1,603 page bill.

In an unusual twist, Ethan agrees with both the conservative right (Senators Ted Cruz-TX and Mike Lee-UT) and liberal left (Senator Elizabeth Warren-MA) in their objections on the bill and he gives us the bottom line.

Sony Pictures Entertainment Hack Attack is a Preview of World War III


Ethan discusses the attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment by North Korea and why this is a critical event that shouldn’t be ignored.

The Sony Pictures Entertainment hack has cost millions of dollars in direct cost, massive lost productivity for over 6,000 employees, was malicious by destroying data and stealing movies and proprietary financial information for online posting.

Movies, documents, and sensitive information were hacked from Sony’s system leaving employees with nothing but ink and paper until things could be restored, costing the company millions of dollars in losses.

Ethan tells us why these cyber attacks may just be a preview of the possible face of WWIII and the importance of online security for businesses and individuals.

Do you thinkIs this is what World War III will look like?

Latest Unemployment Statistics Paint A Misleading Picture


In this video, Ethan discusses the latest unemployment report from the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), dated December 5, 2014.

The headlines in media and pundits all over were touting the huge success of this report with a number of 321,000 new jobs. While getting Americans working in full-time jobs is something worth celebrating, the truth is different from the 321,000 number.

In reality the numbers look like this: 119,000 new people entered the labor pool, 115,000 people lost their jobs, the number of full-time jobs decreased by 150,000, and part-time jobs increased by 77,000. Not as good as the headlines is it?

The U-3 official unemployment rate stayed steady at 5.8%. 321,000 new jobs but unemployment stayed the same? That’s because the net new jobs was only 4,000.

That official unemployment number never tells the true story anyway. They don’t want to scare the masses and speak the truth. You CAN handle the truth. The truth is the U-6 unemployment number. The U-6 unemployment rate is 11.4% or 1 in 9 Americans.

According to the BLS, U-6 is total unemployed, plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force.

What that means is that 1 in 9 Americans either can’t find a job for the past 27 weeks (the number in U-3), can’t find a full-time job only part-time, or have fallen out of the stats because they have been looking longer than 27 weeks.

Not quite the rosy picture now, is it? What are the politicians doing to reduce red-tape, streamline bureaucracy, allow innovation to flourish, and simplify the tax code thus vaulting the United States to the top of business competitiveness?

Later in the video, Ethan covers some of the fallacies of the massive lithium-ion battery because of the sources of lithium.

Artificial Intelligence Could Destroy Us All


Ethan brings us his technological perspective on artificial intelligence, the importance of self-driving cars, and our exponential growth toward A.I. He discusses some of the worlds most brilliant scientists, like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk, and how they are now fearing that a self replicating artificial intelligence may be the end of the human race like the movie “The Terminator.”

Remember that this technological singularity was first predicted and described by John Von Neumann in 1958.

Special thanks to Bird Creek for supplying the closing track, “Surfing Lama.”

Jew Hatred Reaching Heights Not Seen Since Nazi Era


Ethan exposes the mounting Jew hatred. All while Palestinian-Arab leadership doesn’t want peace, it’s not good for their personal bank accounts!

Palestinian-Arab terrorism reaches new levels against Jews with the murder of four rabbis and a Druze policeman in West Jerusalem, Israel. Continued attempts to delegitimize Israel, yet Egypt razes Gaza homes and nobody cares.

Ethan also discusses a new indoctrinating video game from Hamas where a suicide vest is a valuable item.

Interviews with Flemming Rose on Free Speech and Dr Kit Yarrow on Shopping

When the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published the cartoons of the prophet Mohammed in 2005, Denmark found itself at the center of a global battle about the freedom of speech. The paper’s culture editor, Flemming Rose, defended the decision to print the 12 drawings, and he quickly came to play a central part in the debate about the limitations to freedom of speech in the 21st century. In his new book, The Tyranny of Silence, Mr. Rose writes about the people and experiences that have influenced the way he views the world and his understanding of the crisis, including meetings with dissidents from the former Soviet Union and former Muslims living in Europe. He provides a personal account of an event that has shaped the debate about what it means to be a citizen in a democracy maintaining free speech and how to coexist in a world that is increasingly multicultural, multireligious, and multiethnic.


Kit Yarrow, Ph.D., is an award-winning consumer psychologist, a professor, author, consultant and speaker. Her home base is Golden Gate University, where she is a jointly appointed professor of both psychology and marketing. As part of her ongoing research on the psychology of consumers, Dr. Yarrow conducts interviews and ethnographies on a regular basis. She shares her findings and analysis in her books, Decoding the New Consumer Mind (Wiley, 2014) and Gen BuY (Wiley, 2009) which Ethan discusses with her in this interview.
