Is Jordan Harbinger of The Art of Charm Podcast a scammer? One would have trouble reaching any other conclusion when examining the evidence.
(Click play or find me on iTunes to learn more about the evidence showing Mr. Harbinger has neither integrity nor credibility.)
Introducing Jordan Harbinger, Tucker Max, and Roosh.
Roosh, Tucker Max, and The Art of Charm are in the same business – the business of teaching men how to meet women. This is also known as “pick up.”
Looking to destroy who he perceives to be his main competitor, Tucker Max has been lying about Roosh. Unfortunately Tucker Max’s efforts have not succeeded. The only people Tucker Max have won over are members of a terrorist organization PUA Hate:
Tucker Max has picked up where PUAHATE left off. His podcast is perhaps doing more damage to the PUA scene than PUAHATE did. On his podcast, Tucker has a fat shaming professor and other rogue PhDs who never miss the chance to drop a deuce on PUAs.
(If you’ll recall, Elliot Rodger was part of the terror cell PUA Hate. PUA Hate was shut down after Elliot Rodger went on a massacre, shooting innocent men and women after internalizing the type of message Tucker Max now seems to preach.)
Unable to take out Roosh on his own, Tucker Max enlisted a stooge by the name of Jordan Harbinger.
(Jordan is running game on Tucker. Did he get the bang?)
Jordan Harbinger appears on the Mating Grounds Podcast.
On October 10, 2014, Jordan Harbinger and Tucker Max tag-teamed Roosh, who is a business competitor.
During the podcast, Tucker Max and Jordan Harbinger had the following discussion about Roosh:
You know, what’s funny is like, okay, so who are the big people in the “manosphere”? Art of manliness is really big like they can’t stand Roosh. I mean, you go down the list. If you name like a lot of the big people like apparently. You have a very big podcast. You’ve got a big site. Apparently, you’re not a huge fan of his.
I’m not going to interview anybody who titles their book ‘Bang’. Not only that, but like the fact is the messaging is so wrong and, I mean, we don’t have to go down that rabbit hole again but it’s basically ‘You’re not good enough as you are but if you buy this book I can teach you how to trick some ho’s into sleeping with you.’ And it’s like ‘It’s against everything I stand for. No, thanks. Next.’
Jordan made two statements that any lawyer would examine before calling him a scammer:
1. “I’m not going to interview anybody who titles their book ‘Bang.’
2. “And [the book Bang is] against everything I stand for.”
Does the record support Jordan’s statements? What does Mr. Harbinger really think about Roosh and the book Bang?
Emails show that Jordan Harbinger is lying about Roosh and Bang.
Roosh published Bang on July 10, 2007 (Amazon). On June 17, 2008, Jordan Harbinger sent the following email to Roosh:
hey man it’s Jordan Harbinger from PickUp Podcast. Have heard about you via some listeners. Hit me up at [link omitted] – let’s check out the ebook and see if we can work together.
(Exhibits are at the bottom of the post.)
Perhaps Jordan had a change of heart after learning more about Roosh? No. Jordan Harbinger asked Roosh several other times to appear as a guest on the Art of Charm Podcast.
Jordan Harbinger’s most recent email was sent to Roosh on May 27, 2014.
We’re long overdue for an interview. My show is currently getting 600,000 downloads/month and I’d love to have your perspectives aired. Are you interested?
Looking forward bud,
Did Jordan Harbinger have a change of heart about Roosh? If so, what caused it?
After all, Harbinger’s last email to Roosh was less than five months before Harbinger’s appearance on Tucker Max’s Mating Ground Podcast.
(Exhibits: Harbinger’s emails to Roosh re: appearing on The Art of Charm Podcast.)
Lying about your business competitors is a scam.
One can make legitimate criticisms about Roosh and other other person in business. Legitimate criticism is legally and ethically acceptable. Perhaps Jordan knows more about meeting women than anyone else. I highly doubt that, but let’s make room for the possibility.
In that case, Mr. Harbinger could showcase his own skills. He would have no need to lie or scam the all-too-trusting general public.
When you lie about a business competitor in order to increase your own market share, you are perpetuating a scam against the public. You are trying to trick them into hiring you (or reading your site or listening to your podcast) rather than use the services of a competitor.
Lying to the public to increase your market share is a scam. There is no other way to interpret Jordan Harbinger’s behavior.
One can only conclude that Jordan Harbinger of the Art of Charm is not a man of integrity. Like Tucker Max, he has no personal or business ethics, as he will willingly and openly lie in an effort to rip off ignorant and naive listeners.
Mr. Harbinger’s appearance on the Mating Grounds Podcast calls into question all of his previous claims. Unless Mr. Harbinger clarifies his position on Roosh, we should doubt every word that leaves his mouth.
