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 need for uniform election laws plus a crush of censorship have ripped the country even more.

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.

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.

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. This uncertainty will almost certainly spill over onto congressional and downballot races as well. This is going to court. Civil rights litigator Nathan Lewin, top foreign policy expert Walid Phares, JNS Jerusalem Bureau Chief Alex Traiman, political strategist Josh Block, top crisis manager Juda Engelmayer, and threat analyst Ken Abramowitz join Edwin to examine the current state of the electoral process.

America’s 2020 presidential election caused unprecedented jitters. Tens of thousands of mail ballots were erroneously issued or went astray. Both Trump and Biden said they would 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—threw the campaigns into last-minute chaos. Political street violence broke out. Variations in mail-in deadlines among the states and ballot discrepancies guaranteed that election night would become weeks of uncertainty, claims, and counterclaims. Seasoned political strategist Josh Block, top crisis manager Juda Engelmayer, and threat analyst Ken Abramowitz joined Edwin to examine the last-minute controversies and consequences.

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. Seasoned political strategist Josh Block, top crisis manager Juda Engelmayer, threat analyst and author Ken Abramowitz, and other experts join Edwin to examine the controversies and consequences. 

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. There is even open talk of a military confrontation at the White House. Noted legal scholar Alan Dershowitz, seasoned political strategist Josh Block, crisis manager Juda Engelmayer, and other experts join Edwin to examine the controversies and consequences.
