Comedian, UFC commentator and YouTube podcaster Joe Rogan recently had Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on his show.
Rather than standing firm and pursuing important, hard-hitting issues (e.g. censorship) that many of his almost 4.5 million subscribers wanted to finally hear about, Rogan tippy-toed around the real questions and essentially let Dorsey run the interview by spouting his usual lies and disinformation.
Well, that has backfired in a major way and now Rogan seems a little nervous. He’s even posted on his Facebook page, saying he’ll have Dorsey back on and asked his viewers to “please leave a mention in the comments” in case they want “anything in particular” brought up:
The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) Dorsey interview has so far gained 800,000+ views, 8,200 likes, 52,000 dislikes and 30,000 comments.
Many commenting on the video have called Rogan out for asking softball questions and actually censoring (i.e. deleting) negative comments on his channel (much like what Twitter does to conservative accounts, which is a bit ironic).
On Sunday, Infowars host Alex Jones, who has been a longtime friend of Rogan, completely disavowed the popular podcaster.
Note: Scroll down to view the video on YT (as well as a backup link).
Jones’ motivation for calling out Rogan may stem from the moment when Rogan asked Dorsey why Infowars and Jones were completely censored and removed from Twitter. Dorsey said he was “not familiar with the case” and Rogan failed to follow-up; rather, he simply moved onto the next topic very quickly.
Wow, Joe. That was such a nice thing of you to do to your pal Alex, who you’ve been friends with for 20+ years…
On his show, Jones made a number of interesting statements before getting into the real dirt on Rogan.
“Let me get to this point,” Jones said. “I’m not happy to have to attack Joe Rogan. And, Joe Rogan is a very passionate, smart charismatic guy.”
“But, Joe is highly driven,” he continued. “He’s really a dark person. I think that comes from an insecurity complex of being from a poor family in Boston.”
Jones then mentioned his appearance on Rogan’s show and how it was one of the most highly viewed JRE videos at the time.
He explained how he thought it was a great opportunity to go on Rogan’s show and fight back against the fake news that was being propagated about his own company, Infowars.
Jones said he noticed that Rogan started “putting out establishment talking points” in the last year and actually began to personally attack him “with those exact talking points.”
The Infowars host then revealed he found out Rogan was sponsored by Jack Dorsey and George Soros (of all people).
Jones said Rogan was “on the payroll” and is making more money than The Young Turks, a very popular far-left YouTube channel.
He called the whole revelation “really creepy stuff.”
Jones continued and accused Rogan of defending George Soros by saying he “fought the Nazis and was a hero in World War 2.”
He then followed up with the comment, “Man, that’s really sick. [Soros] was on 60 Minutes bragging [about how he helped] round up Jews.”
Jones said he called Rogan on the phone four months ago and confronted him about not being invited back to the podcast:
“Listen man, you don’t have to have me on your stupid show. I don’t care about getting on big platforms… or I would have sold out.
“They want to put you in big movies? They wanted to put me in big movies.
“I piss on Hollywood. I refused their top contracts to be starred in a damn movie, because it’s a sellout.
“Sure, I’d be big in movies. Sure, people watch me already. I don’t need their system.”
“I told him. I said, ‘You run your mouth with George Soros talking points anymore, I’m coming after you because it shows you’re working for them.’
“He kept doing it.
“And then I got really depressed because I realized the only time I ever sold out in my life… strangely enough, because I’ve known Joe for like 20 years. I have this loyalty thing where it’s not a sellout, but I’m like a dog. I’m so loyal, that even though somebody’s not my friend, I’m still loyal because they said they were.”
Jones then explained how he has discovered a whole bunch of things about Rogan, including being “on the payroll of Jack Dorsey” for $300,000 a month. The ‘Cash App’ Wikipedia page was momentarily flashed on the screen:
The company is owned by Dorsey and is a sponsor of Rogan’s show:
Instant buying (and selling, if you don’t want to hodl) of Bitcoin is now available to most Cash App customers. We support Bitcoin because we see it as a long-term path towards greater financial access for all. This is a small step.
We also made this! https://t.co/z3u0liDNk4

Here is a backup screenshot of the above tweet (we couldn’t archive it 🤔)
In a bold statement regarding Rogan selling out, Jones proclaimed, “You think you’re going to sit there and attack free speech and piss all over America?”
As Jones was speaking, his producers showed a page listing sponsors of the JRE Podcast, which are numerous:
- Athletic Greens
- Blue Apron
- Butcher Box
- Cash App
- Dollar Shave Club
- Express VPN
- Four Sigmatic
- Kettle & Fire
- MVMT Watches
- MyBookie Sportsbook
- Perfect Keto
- Rocket Mortgage
- Vital Farms
- Zoom Video Conferencing
“Thank God I didn’t go back on Joe’s show.
“I never want to talk to Joe. I never want to see that little demon. I never want to be associated with you. I don’t want to be associated with selling out, or failure. I just want to be away from you and L.A. and that whole leaking b*tthole that you are. Excuse my French.
“And it’s not a hate of Joe. It’s a revulsion. I don’t hate you Joe, I’m revolted by you.
“You revolt me.”
Jones went on to calling Jack Dorsey an “oiled pimp” and a “frontman of DARPA.”

UPDATE #1: From a CCN article titled ‘Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Pumps Bitcoin on Joe Rogan’s Podcast’ –
In a wide-ranging two hour interview published Saturday, Jack addressed a number of topics … including questions about Bitcoin.
Here’s what Jack had to say:
ABOUT BITCOIN MAXIMALISM
“I believe the Internet will have a native currency and I don’t know if it’s Bitcoin. I think it will be [Bitcoin] given all the tests it has been through and the principles behind it, how it was created. It was something that was born on the Internet, was developed on the Internet, was tested on the Internet, [and] it is of the Internet.”
ABOUT INTEGRATING BITCOIN ON SQUARE’S CASH APP
“The reason we enabled the purchasing of bitcoin within the Cash App is we wanted to learn about the technology and we wanted to put ourselves out there and take some risks.”
“We’re the first publicly traded company to actually offer it as a service. We’re the first publicly traded company to talk to the SEC about Bitcoin and what that means, and it made us uncomfortable. We had to really understand what was going on. And that was critical and important.”
“We would love to see something become a global currency. It enables more access. It allows us to serve more people. It allows us to move much faster around the world. We thought we were going to start with how you can use it transactionally, but we noticed that people were treating it more like an asset, like a virtual gold, and we wanted to just make that easy, just the simplest way to buy and sell bitcoin.”
ABOUT RISKY BITCOIN SPECULATION AND DAY TRADING
“It had to come with constraint, because you know, three years ago, people did some really unhealthy things about purchasing bitcoin. They maxed out their credit cards and put all their life savings into bitcoin.”
“So we developed some very simple restrictions and constraints, like you can’t buy bitcoin on the Cash App with a credit card. It has to be the money you actually have in it. And we look for day trading which we discourage and shut down. That’s not what we’re trying to build. that’s not what we’re trying to optimize for.”
A CHILDREN’S BOOK ABOUT BITCOIN
“We even made a children’s book explaining what Bitcoin is and where it came from and how people use it and where it might be going.”
ABOUT INSTITUTIONAL BANKING AND BITCOIN
“Look at some of the major banks and their consideration around bitcoin… There’s no centralized control over it. And I think that’s threatening.”
“It’s certainly threatening to certain services behind banks and financial institutions. It’s threatening to some governments as well. So I just look at this like how can we embrace this technology and not react to it more from a threat standpoint?”
ABOUT TECHNOLOGICAL AND COMMERCIAL DISRUPTION
“What does it enable us to do and where does our value shift? And that’s what we should be talking about right now: how our value shifts. And there is always really strong answers to that question, but if you’re not willing to ask that question in the first place you will become irrelevant, because technology will continue to march on and make you irrelevant.”
“And it’s the people that are growing up with this technology, are born with that technology, only knowing that technology, or they’re asking the tough questions of themselves that are going to be super relevant to their business. And they’re thinking about it right now, and they’re taking actions.”
This is interesting because, as we explained before, Dorsey owns Cash App, which is a Bitcoin and cryptocurrency processor.
He was essentially trying to “pump up” crypto, which would then affect the (financial) success of his app.

UPDATE #3: Joe Rogan responds to Alex Jones (Warning: vulgar language) –
During his rebuttal, Rogan repeatedly cited ‘Media Matters,’ a Soros-funded disinformation/propaganda group:
Nice one, Joe. You just outed yourself: Media Matters Receives $1 Million From George Soros
UPDATE #4: In response to Joe Rogan’s video, Alex Jones has announced (11:50pm PT on 2/5/2019) he’s “declaring war” on him.
Jones said he is going to “destroy him” and expose everything on not only Rogan, but Jack Dorsey…
