Israel has been preparing its next Lebanon battle for years. A combination of rapid new and massively more destructive weapons coordinated by artificial intelligence will make this war 10 times as intense as the last encounter.

  • EB Show S01E38: American Eugenics: Carnegie Apologizes

    American Eugenics: Carnegie Apologizes

    Air Date: - Season 1 - Episode 38 | Eugenics was America’s shameful, decades-long attempt to create a White, blond, and blue-eyed Master Race to dominate all others. More than 67,000 Americans were forcibly sterilized. This pseudo-scientific campaign of fake medicine and pseudo-genetics was exported to-and embraced by-Nazi Germany, where it was implemented as a core tenet of the Holocaust. Public health officials combined with intellectual elites to commit genocide here and abroad. The Carnegie Institution for Science has issued a statement acknowledging and apologizing for its role in eugenicide. Its parent, the Carnegie Corporation, has issued a similar statement.

  • EB Show S1E36: A Second Civil War?

    America’s Second Civil War?

    Air Date: - Season 1 - Episode 36 | Two years ago, people would have laughed at those who spoke of a Second Civil War. Today, no one is laughing. More and more people are asking if it is possible and doing so both in public and in private. Numerous unrelated, loosely related, and clearly connected troubles are and will continue to boil over and coalesce. Unlike the War Between the States, we may see a well-armed and more often street-armed, splotchy civil war that pits tribe against tribe, interest against interest, jurisdiction against jurisdiction, state against state, city against rural, military group against military group, law enforcement against law enforcement, and red against blue. What might accelerate it? What can slow it down? Seasoned observers weighed in.

  • EB Show S1E35: The Death of Journalism

    The Death of Journalism As We Knew It

    Air Date: - Season 1 - Episode 35 | In 2020, American Journalism—as we know it—finally died. It openly committed mediacide. The networks and newspapers pushed specific candidates, ignored and self-censored important news while magnifying small details and fake accusations, consciously pandered in bogus polls, and hyped divisive politics. It was the Pravdaization of the media. Tens of millions Americans, Democrats and Republicans, have just signed the death certificate, voting against big media and their pollsters. Democracy cannot exist without a free and vibrant press functioning as the permeable membrane between the governed and governance. What’s next? Seasoned media hands weigh in.

  • EB Show S1E34: Post-Election Chaos

    Post-Election Chaos—Now What?”

    Air Date: - Season 1 - Episode 34 | Election Night has come and gone—finally. But who will take the presidential oath of office next January 20th? Mail-in ballot controversies abound. In the critical swing state of Pennsylvania, several county boards have declared they will not begin processing mail ballots until the morning of November 4, even though state law holds that processing should begin at 7:00am on the 3rd. Both candidates have declared that they will only accept the results if the election “is not rigged.” Emails implicating Biden in a robust Chinese kick-back scheme—which he has not denied—have become a hot topic, as has censorship of the allegations by Twitter and major media. Variations in mail-in deadlines among the states—with SCOTUS issuing varying decisions on whether states may count ballots postmarked but not received “on time”—guarantee that we will not know the results on election night, and possibly not until the mid-December date by which time states must certify their counts.

  • EB Show S1E33: Election Jitters

    Election Jitters

    Air Date: - Season 1 - Episode 33 | America’s upcoming presidential election is causing unprecedented jitters. Tens of thousands of mail ballots have been erroneously issued or gone astray. Both Trump and Biden say they will only accept the results if the election “is not rigged.” Revelations of undenied emails implicating Biden in a robust Chinese kick-back scheme—with Twitter and major media censoring the information—have thrown the campaigns into last-minute chaos. Political street violence has already broken out. Variations in mail-in deadlines among the states and ballot discrepancies guarantee that election night will become weeks of uncertainty, claims, and counterclaims. Seasoned political strategist Josh Block, top crisis manager Juda Engelmayer, and threat analyst Ken Abramowitz join Edwin to examine the last-minute controversies and consequences.

  • EB Show S1E32: Election Chaos III

    Electoral Chaos, Part III

    Air Date: - Season 1 - Episode 32 | America’s upcoming November 3 election has been thrown into even greater and more unprecedented chaos. Ballot fraud in various states, and massive errors in mail-in voting programs, as well as disparate counting and validating procedures guarantee election night chaos. Republican party litigation to reshape voting procedures and Donald Trump’s unwillingness to state whether or not he will accept the electoral outcome, Democratic vows to not under any circumstances concede on election night, and statements from all sides that either candidate can only lose if the vote is rigged: all of this assures conflict right through Inauguration Day. Violence and militia plans in some states, such as Michigan, Oregon, and Virginia, have threatened to push us to the brink.
