Appears In These Episodes:

Under President Joe Biden, America has just witnessed an inept and humiliating exit from Afghanistan, leaving behind numerous endangered Americans and half a country of vulnerable women, girls, and U.S. helpers. Now the terrorist Taliban, an affiliate of al Qaeda, is in charge. More than that, billions in advanced weaponry has been left for terrorist groups worldwide including al Qaeda, ISIS, ISIS-K, Hamas, Hezbollah, and unknown terror groups now forming. What’s next for this nightmare? When does it reach America, our allies, and Israel?

Air Date

Open and virulent antisemitism and anti-Israel hatred in the Democratic Party, once diminished and kept below Mason-Dixon line, is now entrenched in powerful senior posts across the country. The result is official legislative and administrative support for or inaction on BDS and a range of other anti-Israel hate messages coming from top ranks in the Congress, the National Security Council, the State Department, and even the White House. Don’t be mistaken—it’s not just the Squad anymore.

Air Date

Is talk of a coming “police state” and domestic terrorism overreach warranted? How is China dictating part of our “cancel culture” and the rise of censorship? Is America embarking on an unconstitutional impeachment?

Air Date

Inaugural conflicts, the expanding revenge quest against the Trump half of America, and heightening media agitation continue to split the nation in two. Reacting to the latest developments, media-savvy crisis manager Juda Engelmayer and political strategist Josh Block joined Edwin to discuss what could be next for the “Divided Nation.”

The new year is upon us but Democrats and Republicans are still arguing about who will actually take the presidential oath of office January 20. The Georgia runoffs, the death of journalism, and continuing electoral chaos have everyone confused. JNS Jerusalem Bureau Chief Alex Traiman, political strategist Josh Block, and top crisis manager Juda Engelmayer join Edwin to examine the current state of the union.

Air Date

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.

Air Date

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.

Air Date

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.

Air Date

America’s upcoming November 3 election has been thrown into unprecedented chaos. The president has tested positive for COVID-19. Mail-in votes are now only guaranteed to be counted days after election night. Questions about mass mail voting, violence in our cities, Republican party allegations of fraud, Democratic party accusations of suppression, plus the assertion that neither candidate should under any circumstances concede on election night guarantee uncertainty, chaos, and conflict right through the final tally of election results and probably through Inauguration Day.

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.
