Until this year, most people didn’t know the name Peter Thiel, but they’ve probably used products or services he’s helped create. He was a founder of PayPal, and the first outside investor in Facebook. He’s also an angel investor in LinkedIn, Yelp and many.
Needless to say, he’s a billionaire.
And also a Christian and a libertarian and gay man and a lawyer and a banker, with a degree in philosophy.
He was the secret financier behind the Hulk Hogan lawsuit that forced the left-wing website Gawker into bankruptcy.
Thiel is also a Republican in San Francisco. That’s rarer than an albino tiger.
Peter Thiel gave a speech yesterday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., explaining why he supports Trump.
I don’t agree with everything Thiel says. He’s too libertarian and too futuristic for me.
But he has the basics right.
I’ll show you some highlights of the speech so many people are sharing and talking about.
For example, he speaks about an issue that I've changed my mind about in the past year: Trade. (WATCH and find out why...)
NEXT: Our friend, lawyer John Carpay of Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, comes on to talk about a great victory for all freedom loving Canadians, particularly our Rebel viewers, who have been so supportive:
The BC Supreme Court has ruled in favour of Trinity Western University's Christian law school!
THEN: Jordan Peterson is the University of Toronto psychology professor who is fighting another academic free speech battle — for his right to refuse to use fashionable, "progressive" gender pronouns.
Today he updates us about where his fight with the university (and some of its students) stands today.
FINALLY: Your message to me!
