In “Yaron’s News Briefing” Episode 13 of 4 January 2018 Mr. Brook takes Trump to task for threatening to sue the publisher of Bannon’s tell all book for libel if they go through with it. Mr. Brook says he is a public figure too and he doesn’t get upset when people criticize him. After saying go read this and that:

“... and go read, I’m not, I’m not gonna refer to the website, there’s a [raises voice] whole website dedicated to attacking me. A whole website! Just to attacking me! Goes into great detail! [throws up right hand] I’m a, you know, on, on what kind of a monster I am. You know, so what. I’ve never talked about it, I’ve never gotten angry about it. I’ve never written nasty letters about it. The hell with it.”

LOL.  It’s true that ARI Watch calls Mr. Brook names but only after reasoned arguments based on abundant evidence provided to the reader. He makes it sound as if all ARI Watch does is call him names. That way he needn't address the arguments and evidence.

Since Yaron Brook has been reading the website – for quite a while it sounds like – he must know about Carl Barney by now. The website proves that Barney was an executive in the Church of Scientology on the same level as David Miscavige, the man who later succeeded L. Ron Hubbard. Barney ran five “missions” in California for nine years, and left only because Hubbard kicked him out.

Yet so far no comment from Mr. Brook or anyone else at ARI.

ARI has doubled down in its association with Barney. Its Annual Report which just came out features him prominently to the left of the Table of Contents: a photograph and a long quote.

I'm re-reading The Fountainhead after nearly 40 years. YBI couldn't be further from the incorruptible Roark. YBI are a beggar's version of Gail Wynand.

"The evil of national sovereignty"

Yuk. What Filth. Good riddance. May Soros be next!

Anyone remember who tweeted "We must pivot from fighting socialism to fighting nationalism" on the night of Twump's election?

Yawon's Lost His BFF

Traitor to Western Civilization Peter Sutherland has assumed room temperature. It was the only decent act of his entire existence. Yaron Brook will probably attend the funeral.

The Yaron Brook Institute definitely isn't taking any lessons from Howard Roark.

Egocentric Brook

ARI Watch is not all about Brook (most of the essays – many are pages off pages and not listed in the main index – don’t even mention him) but what other website could he be thinking of? I’d like to see that website.

He complains that he gets criticized but doesn’t say what the criticisms are. If someone criticizes him then ipso facto they are ridiculous.

Lately I’ve been hectoring his and ARI’s Twitter account with tweets containing links to ARI Watch articles.  That might be when he started taking notice if not earlier.

Egomaniac

Mark -- Is it clear Brook is referring to ARI Watch? Maybe he's referring to another web site.

If not, then Brook is one hell of an egomaniac! ARI Watch scrutinizes all of ARI and its many participants, supporters, and fans -- not just one member.

Hilawious!

Mr. Brook says he is a public figure too and he doesn’t get upset when people criticize him.

He surely doesn't say that with a stwaight face? He who made it a precondition of my debate with him that I not make any "sweeping bwoad cwiticism" of him??!!

How does ARISIS get away with claiming not-for-profit status when in its Trump Derangement Syndrome it is so blatantly politically partisan?!
