When Ben and Jerry’s announced its BDS-allied boycott of Jews in Judea and Samaria and probably all of Israel, it set off a global firestorm of backlash: counterboycotts, legal actions by state authorities, and store shelf removals. The trademark has even been seized in Israel. Famed civil rights attorney Nathan Lewin, legal scholar Alan Dershowitz, top lawfare litigator Nitsana Leitner, who seized Ben and Jerry’s Israeli trademark, as well as crisis manager Juda Engelmeyer join Edwin.

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?
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
“US Election Chaos.” America’s upcoming November 3 election has been thrown into unprecedented chaos by COVID-19, political warfare, massive distrust, and a flurry of accusations from all sides. Questions about mass mail voting, postal interference, violence in our cities, Republican allegations of fraud, and the Democratic Party’s assertion that their candidate should under no circumstances concede on election night mean uncertainty, chaos, and conflict right through the final tally of election results.
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.
