Notes from the Producer:
Gavin de Becker talks with Andrew about protection, security, and freedom. Gavin is widely recognized as America’s leading expert in the protection of public figures. His firm, Gavin de Becker & Associates, has been protecting public figures from A-List actors to billionaires for the last forty years. Because of his excellent work, Gavin’s expertise has won him three presidential appointments.
This guy has been on Oprah (twice!), and was recently a guest on Joe Rogan’s podcast, so the RedBalloon team was pretty pumped to have him on our brand-new show! Although his conversation with Andrew focuses on medical freedom and free speech for much of the time, Gavin has developed some excellent resources for protection against domestic violence, which you should check out at the bottom of this post.
Gavin Talks About:
His remarkable team and the important work they do protecting individuals and families.
What it looks like for a company to provide the same exceptional service no matter what a customer’s ideological positions may be.
Jane Fonda’s safety
How the covid response has affected the “quality of service” that Americans receive in businesses across most industries.
Approaching disagreement with rational, civil discussion.
Mandates, safety, and freedom.
Children, gun safety, and technology.
Compassion and covid opinions.
His mission was to provide high-paying jobs for qualified individuals leaving the military or police service.
Katie’s Favorite Quotes:
“I hate censorship.”
“Fauci is a very powerful doctor, but he’s not the only doctor, and he’s not the youngest doctor, and he’s not the least conflicted doctor.”
“My company doesn’t believe in mandating a particular medical product – a year ago we couldn’t even ask about a particular medical product...we don’t think it’s our business.”
“I saw a quote the other day that said ‘The people who guarded and protected Anne Frank were breaking the law, and the people who killed Anne Frank were following the law.’ The law is often a combination of politics and opinions with a lot of conflicted rationale behind it. Here I’m not advocating for law-breaking, but I am advocating for independent thinking.”
Here are some of the action steps that you could apply from today’s episode:
Step 1: Improve your safety and your ability to protect your family in this increasingly dangerous world – read The Gift of Fear or take Gavin’s Masterclass on personal safety (see links below).
Step 2: If you know someone in the military or police force who wants more freedom in their career, tell them about the high-paying, rewarding jobs at GDBA! Share this link for GDBA jobs on RedBalloon!
Step 3: Find independent news sources that aren’t a part of the “Trusted” News Initiative. I like to listen to The Morning Wire every day to stay on top of current events and get The Epoch Times delivered each week for a deeper dive into the news.
Step 4: No matter where you get your news – make a habit of practicing critical and independent thinking!
