40 Principles to Live By on my 40th Birthday
Saturday, November 18, 2017 12:08 AM

Today I’ll be living a day previously unimaginable, because where I grew up, it wouldn’t have been possible to imagine such worlds exist. I’ve been from the poor house to the White House. Here is what I’ve learned along the way to help you dream and live big.

  1. Surrender feelings of self-importance. With apologies to Carlos Castaneda for the blatant ripoff, this is the most important lesson you will learn. It’s not about you. Get over yourself. Incidentally, it amazes me that people complain about their friends without thinking, “Hey, I’m the one who surrounded myself with these people.” It’s only about YOU when you can blame OTHER people for “mistreating” you. What a racket.
  2. View yourself as the most important person in the world. If you are not healthy, wealthy, and wise, how can you leave an impact on the world? If you’re mindset isn’t in order, how can you be a good parent, pastor, teacher, public servant, or even informed citizen. Make yourself great.
  3. Become comfortable with paradoxes. 20 year old men are chomping at the bit to correct the obvious contradiction between 1 and 2. Get used to holding simultaneously contradictory thoughts. For example, free will is a myth, and if you live as if you have free will, your life will improve. If you live as if free will is a myth, you’ll be miserable. This has been scientifically proven. But wait, if free will is a myth, how can you live as if you have free will? Exactly.
  4. Look for the sentiment expressed by a person rather than the literal truth. When someone says, “Live as if today is your last day,” they don’t mean you should go out and exact revenge on your enemies without fear of consequences, or spend all of your money, or do something reckless as if you’re Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. What they mean is to make every day count, because it might be your last day.
  5. You are the product of your habits and your friends and family. If you don’t like who you are, look inside for your habits, and outside at your family and friends. You may need to cut out some negative forces in your life.
  6. If you have the choice, be as fit and healthy as possible. Not everyone has this choice. I’ve gone through life fit, fat, and jacked. Your life will fundamentally improve if you lose weight, go to the gym and lift weights, and follow a basic skincare routine. This isn’t even debatable.
  7. Read old books to understand the news. I’m great a social media because I never had social media during my formative years. If you think today’s headlines are bad, read what the newspapers were saying during the Vietnam War, WWI, or WWII. The news exists to create a state of frenzy, and yes I realize some will say my own journalism contributes to this climate. (See lesson 3, above.)
  8. Seek meaning and fulfillment, not pleasure. I’ve had every pleasure imaginable. Nothing feels like the look of your newborn daughter or son. It’s not pleasurable in the ways we typically think of a good feeling. It’s a deep sense of connectedness.
  9. Seek community. We belong to a hive mind, or what Howard Bloom calls the Global Brain. Community and connection have been taken away from you by design. Atomization is suffocation. Find your community, form deep and meaningful connections — which means to stop making it about you (lesson 1, above).
  10. Learn how to breathe. Breath controls mood. An anxiety attack happens when you lose control of your breathing. The Wim Hof breathing method course has ended any fear I ever had of public speaking. You cannot be afraid if your breath remains even, with you fully in control.
  11. Accept that you can’t change others, and move on quickly from the negative and toxic. Changing yourself is hard, changing others is impossible. “Talking it out” rarely works, as character is destiny. Cut people off when they mistreat you, or simply when the vibe doesn’t work. Every minute spent with a drama monger is a minute you’re not connecting with deep people and having meaningful connections.
  12. Character is destiny. Your actions become your habits and your habits become your character. Fighters fight. Weak people quit and strong people survive and thrive. Even if a challenge you set is arbitrary, meet the challenge because small victories, like small surrenders, add up.
  13. Seek small victories. Comparison is suicide, as Ralph Waldo Emerson told us in Self-Reliance. Your victories are yours, and it doesn’t matter how they “size up” with anyone else’s. (Plus, I’ve met the obscenely rich and famous. For the most part they are bland people who struck it big one time, which isn’t hating on them, but they are petty and nasty like everyone else.)
  14. Play the odds unless you have an edge. This goes for investing in the stock market, dating, and living generally. Certain rules (don’t day trade but instead dollar cost average into the market, don’t quit your job to follow your passion) are going to lead you to the best outcome frequently enough that it’s folly to break those rules.
  15. There is no singular life purpose. You — whatever this “you” is — will change over time, and so will your preferences. Convincing people to seek their life purpose has led millions in the wrong direction. Stay busy, be useful to others. A sense of purpose will arrive.
  16. Write every day. This might be a journal, blog, or book. Writing allows you to process your emotions in a healthy way. Plus, you don’t really know what your ideas are until you can articulate them precisely.
  17. Read fiction like it’s non-fiction. Fiction isn’t “fantasy,” because characters and their actions represent the author’s view of humanity. Bonfire of the Vanities is ostensibly the great American novel. Read it and tell me if it doesn’t sound like a non-fiction work about current affairs. Snow Crash imagines what humanity could be like in a future time. Catch-22 uses stories to help us laugh at human irrationality. Cormac McCarthy shows you the dark side of humanity in Blood Meridian.
  18. Make One Big Move a year. In 2017 I decided to become a journalist. In 2016 I moved into films. In 2015 I published my first book. Your move is your move, but make each year count. Maybe it’s time to lose some weight, start a side business, or simply read a book (remember those rules about small victories).
  19. Think big, start small. How did I get to where I am today? I wrote terse posts on a Wordpress dot com blog and trolled with some friends on Twitter. Get out there, make your voice heard, but don’t expect to take over the world in a day or even a year. A decade is more like it.
  20. Treat failures like preparation for success. Even success is preparation for success. No one says, “I’ve made it,” and stops. The same is true of failures. Successful people view failure as preparation for great endeavors.
  21. Stop rejecting yourself. In my coaching talks, people give me 10 reasons why they can’t do something, and all of these reasons are completely made up. Give the world the opportunity to reject you. My own writing, which I hesitated publishing, often ended up being my most popular. My “genius” writing flopped. When you’re writing or selling or performing for other people, they get to have an opinion about what’s good.
  22. Each day say to yourself, “My heart is filled with love and overwhelming abundance from the universe.” If this feels silly, that’s your own fault. That is your Inner Judge stopping you. No one has to hear you. The only person judging you is yourself, and even those judgements are from other people. Try it every day for a week, then let me know what happens.
  23. Tip well. Stinginess is another word for greediness. Greedy people make poor life decisions. Get into the habit of treating people well, and you’ll find the world treats you well.
  24. Make as much money as you possibly can without compromising your ethics. Money matters. I’ve been broke and flush with cash. A certain amount of money frees you from the anxiety that one bad review will cost you your job. Likewise, live frugally, and never grow into your pay raise, or financial windfall. Money can’t buy happiness, but a lack of money can bring you unhappiness.
  25. Get started today. Today is the youngest you’ll ever be. It’s November, and a change of years is arbitrary. Waiting to January is confessing that your success isn’t important enough to seek out today. Consider the message this sends to yourself.
  26. Tell people in your life why they matter. When a memory surfaces about a person or event, write that down. Send a note. That this seems “corny” or “weird” says more about our debased, self-indulgent society than it does about the feeling in and of itself. We are told to fear and avoid intimacy, as human connection leads to deeper meaning, which gives the advertisers less to sell you.
  27. Being nice to people doesn’t cost you anything, and the gains you make are as close to free money as you’ll ever receive.
  28. Read Gorilla Mindset. Hey, if you made it this far down into the article, you’ll love my book.
  29. Fail early, and move on quickly. The average multi-millionaire has been fired from 5 jobs. OK, I made that up, but few people hit it big on their first try. A big mistake people make is believing that their current circumstance is going to magically change. Get out of bad relationships and bad situations as soon as possible, charge those “losses” to the game, and move forward towards your life vision.
  30. Run your life as a one man or woman corporation — You, Inc. The jobs are all going away. Even if you have a job, you need to work it like you’re an entrepreneur who is seeking to create value rather than collect a paycheck. James Altucher has some great books on this subject, such as Choose Yourself and The Rich Employee.
  31. Align your habits and vision. If your life goal is to be a gossip, then spend hours a day fretting over drama and pettiness. If you have a different life vision, check in regularly. Ask yourself if what you’re doing in this moment will bring you closer to your life vision.
  32. Get a proper mattress. It amazes me that people don’t pay more attention to how they spend 30% of their lives. Buying a mattress is probably the most important purchasing decision you’ll make other than your house and car. (And it’s probably more important to have a proper mattress than the “ideal” car.)
  33. Thank 10 people a day. We live in a time of overwhelming abundance. You can learn any subject you like, connect with similar-minded people online and in real space. You probably don’t realize how good you have it because you’re focusing on problems rather than opportunities. Thank 10 people a day for what they do — this could be the people who make your coffee, your family members, or even your personal heroes. We have hundreds of interactions with people each day. If you can’t find a reason to be grateful for 5% of those moments, the problem is with you.
  34. Love is great, compatibility is what lasts. Romantic love, like degeneracy, is a modern invention. In any relationship you’re going to spend hours with the person, and love wears off like any other drug. Shared values on issues that matter is what makes a relationship last.
  35. Accept your partner for who they are today, not who you (delusionally) think you can turn them into tomorrow. Change is hard. How much have you improved your own life? Think about what a struggle it is to move yourself, the person you have total control over, into the right direct. In what world do you believe you can change others?
  36. Have children, or don’t. This is impossible for me to speak on. I partied and lived a fun life before my first daughter was born. I certainly don’t regret waiting. Others wish they had had more sooner. Parenthood is the most important decision you’ll ever make. Choose wisely, and don’t think you should have children with the first woman you love (see above).
  37. Ask what your prize is for “winning” an argument with your friend, partner, or love one. Arguing with loved ones is a stupid game with stupid prizes like bitterness, resentment, and hurt feelings. Arguing is about validating your feelings, which is a failure of your own mindset. If you feel like bringing up some point, keep a list throughout the day and wait until the end of the day to bring it up. Chances are you’ll look at the list and realize how petty it is.
  38. Travel with your children. Americans are terrified of traveling with children, which is common in the rest of the world. It’s silly to think you can’t travel or take a trip because of your children. Prepare well, check out a travel check list, and read the mom blogs. It’s not a big deal. And if you’re an adult whining because there’s a child on the plane, grow up. Bring some headphones and learn how to occupy your time.
  39. Put your phone in airplane mode at the gym or on a hike. We are all addicted to social media and the news, because politics is our new national religion. I’m not going to be a giant hypocrite and tell you to “tune out.” But I do as a habit have my phone in airplane mode at certain times each day.
  40. Embrace aging. 50 is not the new 30. Our society is youth obsessed, even though America’s youth have the highest levels of anxiety in generations. When I talk to young people, I am glad to be 40. Their world is a mess and we should try to help build a better world for them rather than wear cartoon super hero t-shirts, like a Marc Cuban wannabe. Also, yes it sucks that you have to work harder simply to maintain what you have — whether that’s a body or mind. Get over it, because if you do nothing, you’ll rot from the inside out.

Bigotry at The Daily Beast — Contact Press@IAC.com to Ask if They Stand By this Behavior
Tuesday, November 14, 2017 2:25 AM

Marlow Stern of The Daily Beast is a bigot, let his employers know.

When Trump allegedly mocked the disability of a journalist, the entire media freaked out. Yet when Marlow Stern of The Daily Beast engaged in such vile conduct, you won’t hear about it on “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter. But employers take such matters seriously, as bigoted behavior can be used as evidence in a lawsuit.

Marlow Stern mocked a speech impediment I have. Engaging in such conduct, while lawful on social media, would be a violation under the Americans With Disabilities Act if done at work.

Millions of Americans struggle with speech impediments, and many children are insecure about the way they speak.

How can a professional journalist engage in such vile, discriminatory behavior?

Stern deleted the Tweet but did not apologize. The Tweet was posted here:


An archive of the Tweet is available here:


Email IAC, which Owns the Daily Beast, to Ask About this Behavior.

You can email IAC, the parent corporation of The Daily Beast, here:


You can also contact individual members of the Board of Directors.

Leadership | IAC

Be polite, be civil.

We have the moral high ground. Simply report honestly what The Daily Beast supports, and ask IAC if this is what their brands are about.

Here is what I emailed (typos in original):

I would like to bring your attention a Tweet by one of a reporter at The Daily Beast.

Stern deleted the Tweet but did not apologize. The Tweet, attached as a screen capture, was posted here:
An archive of the Tweet is available here:
I demand an apology from Stern, and also want to ensure your Legal and HR department have a record of this behavior, as it would be relevant in any anti-discrimination lawsuit brought against your companies. It would show that there is a culture with your company of tolerating bigotry.

Thank you,

Mike Cernovich

LA Times Calls Female Press Secretary a “Chunky Soccer Mom”
Saturday, November 4, 2017 7:30 PM

The Los Angeles Times has refused to discipline a columnist who called Sarah Huckabee Sanders a “chubby soccer mom” in paper.

“Sarah Huckabee Sanders looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games,” David Horsey wrote in the prestigious Los Angeles Time opinion page.

The LA Times approved a column attacking a woman’s looks, and Horsey hasn’t faced any discipline. David Horsey remains free to harass women on the pages of the LA Times and also at the workplace.

Is David Horsey sexually harassing women in the workplace? Given the poor track record of male feminists in media, it seems likely he is checking out female colleagues and being inappropriate towards them. If you’re a woman who has dealt with Horsey, email me and I’ll report on the creep.

Why hasn’t the Los Angles Times issued a statement disavowing the vile David Horsey?

The Los Angeles Times is trying to make this story blow over. Don’t let them.

Let the Los Angeles Times know how you feel.

For questions about journalistic standards, practices and accuracy, contact the Readers’ Representative Office by e-mail, phone (877) 554–4000 or fax (213) 237–3535.

The LA Times wants this story to go away. Don’t get them get away with it.

Make calls and send emails. Insist that this story isn’t going away without a full and public apology from the entire LA Times editorial board.

Four Journalists from theSh*tty Men in Media List are Confirmed Harassers — Who‘s Next?
Saturday, November 4, 2017 7:14 PM

The Sh*tty Men in Media List appears to be accurate — Who will release it in full?

At least four men whose names appear on the Sh*tty Men in Media List are on leave from their jobs or have been fired. Those four men include:

  • Hamilton Fish,
  • Leon Wieseltier,
  • David Corn,
  • Rupert Myers.

David Corn, who works at Mother Jones, had his misbehavior covered up at the very top of the publication. Clara Jeffery attacked this journalist for sending an email asking about Mr. Corn. @Cernovich/busted-clara-jeffery-at-mother-jones-is-covering-up-sexual-harassment-scandal-c2cc364be15e" target="_blank">Jeffery called me a “conspiracy theorist.”

We just are not going to comment on unsourced, 3rd-hand allegations repackaged by an alt-right blogger and Pizzagate conspiracy theorist.” Mother Jones editor Clara Jeffery told POLITICO.

A couple of days later, the story broke that David Corn is under investigation for sexual harassment.

David Corn investigated for inappropriate workplace behavior

We can thus say with clear certainty: Clara Jeffery covers up sexual misconduct. She hates women, she does not care about women, and any lawyer suing Mother Jones is going to have a field day during her deposition.

Several other men in media are on leave after being exposed as rapist and sexual harassers. One male feminist from Vice, a pro-pedophile website that has attacked me, is accused of RAPE.

Vice has a literal rapist on payroll, and yet they attack us over “mean Tweets.” Let that sink in.

In any event, it’s clear that the Sh*tty Men in Media List is accurate.

I have a copy of the list and may release it in full.

Full Speech and Slideshow — Mike Cernovich’s Speech at Columbia University
Wednesday, November 1, 2017 4:26 PM

Mike Cernovich gave a compelling critique of the fake news media. Watch the speech and read the slides here.

Journalist, author, and filmmaker gave a highly protested speech at Columbia University last night. Cernovich’s speech focused on the fake news media. In his speech Cernovich scrupulously documented fake stories spread by major news outlets like the Washington Post and CNN.

Cernovich also had a lengthy Q&A, where he answered several questions from protesters and haters.

Media Claims a False Flag Conspiracy Theory Happened at Columbia Protest
Tuesday, October 31, 2017 7:23 PM

Journalists are claiming a sign connecting ANTIFA to pedophilia is a false flag.

“Stop pedo bashing,” a sign outside a protest at Columbia University read. Several hundred protesters gathered in New York to protest Mike Cernovich, who was speaking about the rise of new media at Columbia.

Without offering any evidence at all, members of the fake news media are claiming Mike Cernovich supporters planted the banner.

Cernovich was eating a light pre-speech dinner of shrimp and quinoa at Le Monde when people began texting him pictures, which appears to have been taken by the Gothamist’s Jake Offenhartz.

Mr. Offenhartz is claiming I “stole his picture and lied about it.” Several people sent me the picture, which I assumed was a screen shot from a Periscope. I didn’t lie about the picture, but accurately described it as follows “ANTIFA seen holding a NAMBLA sign.” That is exactly what happened, and nothing in any article refutes that point.

Offenhartz lies about me throughout his article, especially by calling me “alt-right,” a label I’ve rejected for over a year. The alt-right guys call me “alt-lite,” and admit I have no involvement with them.

Can you trust “journalists” who lie about me being alt-right in their headlines and story leads?

As you can see in this video, ANTIFA members were holding the sign and marching with it.

After a while, a man audience decided he didn’t like it, began mansplaining, before violently snatched the sign from the hands of women. Way to check your privilege, bro.

Philip Bump of the Washington Post, without any evidence at all, suggests the banner was a false flag. I’ve invited Bump to be a guest on InfoWars with me, to discuss his theory about false flags at ANTIFA rallies.

Whenever someone shows up a Trump rally with an offensive sign, the media treats those signs as real. They don’t claim people go into Trump rallies to false flag Trump.

Can you think of a time when the media worked actively to debunk hateful signs seen at a Trump rally? Has the media ever claimed Trump supporters were being false flagged by the left?

That’s an interesting double standard, isn’t it? Shouldn’t the media treat every “hate crime” with the same level of scrutiny they are treating the ANTIFA-NAMBLA sign? That would be real, unbiased journalism, wouldn’t it?

Why does the media want to protect ANTIFA’s reputation?

For years the fake news media refused to report on ANTIFA violence.

CNN, rather than use its resources to track down Eric Clanton, a college professor who used a bike lock to crack open a Trump supporter’s skull, focused their attention on anonymous Reddit user who posted a humorous gif.

When CNN finally covered ANTIFA, this is the actual headline they used: “Activists seek peace through violence.”

Is CNN ANTIFA’s public relations firm?

Violence against women is how you achieve peace, according to the fake news media.

Why does the media want to protect pedophiles?

The fake news media is pro-pedophilia. Salon, the NY Times, and New York Magazine have all run articles encouraging tolerance for “virtuous pedophiles.”

The BBC today was defending Kevin Spacey, calling his detractors homophobes after it was revealed Spacey sexually assaulted a 14 year old boy.

The fake news media can’t even get basic facts right. They still call me alt-right, which everyone who follows me know is a lie. This is why no one believes them anymore.

Journalists who want to regain public trust must do better. If you can’t get a basic label right, don’t cry when no one believes the rest of your story.

Matt Taibbi Confesses to Forcing Employees to Perform Sexual Favors
Friday, October 27, 2017 8:58 PM

Matt Taibbi claims the Exile is satire, he’s lying and I can prove it.

A book co-authored by Matt Ames and Matt Taibbi is loaded with fun stories like this, “We have been pretty rough on our girls. We’d ask our Russian staff to flash their asses or breasts for us. We’d tell them that if they wanted to keep their jobs, they’d have to perform unprotected anal sex with us.”

Matt Taibbi is claiming that The eXile, from which that above passage appears, is satire. He’s lying, as Google Books shows.

#v=onepage&q&f=false" target="_blank">The inside cover to The eXile reads: “This is a work of non-fiction.. all of the characters and events depicted in this book are real.” — Matt Taibbi

Despite The eXile being marketed as non-fiction, Taibbi yesterday wrote:

While the events described are not a biographical reality, this is not to say I don’t have regrets about the eXile, which was conceived as a giant satire, whose purpose was to be an ongoing embarrassment to the expatriates who came to Russia to spread the American way.

Again, that’s not what Taibbi said when he released the book. Again, #v=onepage&q&f=false" target="_blank">see for yourself:

“This is a work of nonfiction. While all of the characters and events depicted in this book are real, certain names and identifying details have been changed.”

Matt Taibbi also threw a cup of of hot coffee on a reporter who told Matt that The eXile wasn’t a good book:

“Yes, the Exile book. I thought it was redundant and discursive and you guys left out a lot of the good stuff you did,” I said.
At this, Taibbi’s mouth turned down and his eyes narrowed.
“Fuck you,” he snarled, and then picked up his mug from the table, threw his coffee at me, and stormed out.

That’s an awfully emotional response over a “satirical” book.

Taibbi is unhinged:

He walked up to me, glaring, beside himself with rage.
“Fuck you!” he yelled. “Did you bring me here to insult me? Who are you? What have you ever written? Fuck you!” I tried to talk to him, but gave up when he walked away. I went back inside, paid the bill, left, and began walking up Sixth Avenue. Halfway up the block, I turned around, and Taibbi was behind me.

Busted! Clara Jeffery at Mother Jones is Covering up Sexual Harassment Scandal
Thursday, October 26, 2017 3:05 AM

Mother Jones is covering up a a major sexual harassment scandal, and this effort is being led by Clara Jeffery.

Several female journalists contributed to a Google document called the Shitty Men in Media List. This spreadsheet documented sexual harassment by men in journalism. Mike Cernovich obtained this list, but has not contributed to it.

The Shitty men in Media list contains the names on multiple Mother Jones writers. When asked about the list, Mother Jones editor Clara Jeffety lied to Politico:

“We’re committed to a comfortable and safe environment for everyone, but we just are not going to comment on unsourced, 3rd-hand allegations repackaged by an alt-right blogger and Pizzagate conspiracy theorist.” Mother Jones editor Clara Jeffery told POLITICO.

Anyone who has seen the Shitty Men in Media List can confirm the following, as fact: a)Mike Cernovich had nothing to do with creating or packaging the list, and b) Multiple Mother Jones writers are on the Shitty Men in Media List.

Why did Jeffery try to spin the question? She is lying. I did not repackage anything. I have the list. I did not write it. I did not alter it. I did not package or repackage or unpackage it. Ms. Jeffery is telling an outright lie. She is fake news.

Mother Jones is covering up a major sexual harassment scandal. Otherwise, why lie?

If you’ve been sexually harassed at Mother Jones, reach out to me, or to someone else in journalism. Or put the harassers on blast in public.

This is a vile lie from Jeffery, and no decent person should let her or Mother Jones cover up sexual harassment.

Cernovich Receives Hate After Receiving the Shitty Men in Media List
Sunday, October 22, 2017 4:04 PM

Mike Cernovich has obtained the list, and to his surprise, people are angry — at him.

In an effort to protest other women from creepy male feminists, several female journalists created a “Shitty Men in Media List.” Mike Cernovich has obtained the list, and to his surprise, people are angry — at him.

Gizmodo editor Tom McKay was mad, and called Cernovich’s journalism as “smearing his opponents as rapists.”

Cernovich did not create the list, female journalists did. Is Tom McKay claiming female journalists lie about sexual harassment? That’s the only implication one can find from his Tweets.

Others are suggesting it’s wrong to publish anonymous accusations of sexual misconduct, while admitting they have been sharing the list widely among themselves.

Cernovich has not released the full unredacted list, as he is investigating each claim.

Although Cernovich would be well within his legal rights to publish the list in full, he has not done so. He is instead looking into the allegations contained in the list.

That said, it’s astounding how furious people are for a list that Cernovich did not create, and that has been in wide circulation among journalists.

If the list isn’t to be trusted, why are journalists sharing it? No one will answer this question.
