Mehdi, the world needs smart, fearless journalists like you, whether we are Muslim or not (I am not), hypocrisy, double-standards, hatred, and bigotry erode humanity for everyone.

Mehdi can you get an interview with Candace Owens and her shock separation from Daily Wire?

He won't be interviewing horrid people like her; why should he? There's nothing of interest to decent people in this spat between right wingers.

We don't need to give more exposure to ignorant and obnoxious bigots. They're a waste of time.

I’d definitely be down for that!

I think its a great idea. She may say some horrible things, reflecting view of a far right, but even she couldn't go along with the Gaza Holocaust, and had taken a principled stand on the issue, which appears to have cost her, her job. I doubt she's the only person on the far right that feels that way about Gaza. And she seemed to push back againt the weaponisation of the accusation of "antisemitism" which is often used to shut dow conversations and deflect criticism; another thing I'm sure others on the right feel. Discussion by Mehi and Candice could prove very interesting and fruitful. They also have a lot of followers who may learn a lot from a discussion, where there is common ground. Mehdi/Candice sounds Great!

Mehdi, I think in every election we get fooled by analysts that voting third party will get X president win. Change never comes overnight so we have to try 3rd party. Tired of flipping b/w Democrats or Republicans. My advice vote for candidate, who stands on right or more toward right path. When you cast your vote don’t look for who will benefit me. Look for who cares for all. By joining Zeteo, I am happy that I did a wise decision. For the last 6 months I stopped watching main stream media due to agenda news only.

I will vote the path of least resistance, as well, towards what I believe is right way. In this case, that will be President Biden. That may be construed as voting for the lesser of two evils, but I don't see it that way. We have to cancel any vote for Donald Trump and make MAGA politically irrelevant by casting votes for his main competitor, not someone who will never attain the WH at this point.

I cannot in good conscience vote Trump or Biden. Biden will win in my state no matter what. I am voting 3rd party because I have to vote with my conscience. There are more than two choices.

Expand full comment

I don't think people who say this understand what a conscience is. Voting 3rd party in the U.S. is a virtue signaling ego sop; it is not voting conscientiously.

Biden doesn't need FL to win the EC vote, but I'd love to see it turn Blue after Meatball Ron's disastrous run as governor. I would probably do the same and vote 3rd if FL was already Blue.

And just would this accomplish, exactly? Other than helping Trump win back the presidency?

No one intelligent votes 3rd party in America.

"When you cast your vote don’t look for who will benefit me. Look for who cares for all. "

Which is exactly why you should vote for Biden rather than indulging your grievances. A 3rd party candidate cannot win; they only draw votes from Biden and increase the chances that Trump will win ... which is something Putin would love, which is why Russia's disinformation agents keep injecting "3rd party" nonsense into our discourse.

"By joining Zeteo, I am happy that I did a wise decision."

I hope you will listen when Zeteo and Medhi tell you how important it is to stop Trump, and that the President will be either Biden or Trump and you need to make a rational choice.

In my opinion, we should not vote Biden and let him lose the election because:

1. Trump cannot be worst than Biden when it comes to Muslims in general and Gaza in particular - at least he will say what he want to do and not speak from both sides of the mouth.

2. We need to show the power of our vote, not only Muslims but all who cares, and teach a lesson so politicians start to listen to us as they do to AIPAC.

This will also tell the politicians that money doesn't always mean winning an election; votes actually make one win an election and not funding alone.

Two words: Ross Perot.

He's not running, and when he did win he not only lost, he received 0 Electoral College votes.

Mehdi is best when he interviews people who speak without facts i.e the liars. However I think it will take alot of success before he gets such people on his show. I am ready to support this show all the way!

I hope you add Canada in your coverage - it is of course connected,

Many journalists that work both sides of the border and if nothing else Zstephen Harper / IDU needs coverage

Hopefully Zeteo will be that illuminating light we all are hoping for as we are sadly in the current dark tunnel of the mainstream Western media. Pitch black almost. Torchlight anybody?

I surmise tht the Biden administration is relying on public ignornance ("thanks to Zionist mainstream media), as it continues to fund $$$billions and shipments of arms to genocidal, racist, ethnic cleansing, nation stealing, neo-Nazi Zionist Israel. Your thoughts on this?

Expand full comment

I think it’s relying hugely on funding from the 40 million Christian Zionists in the US. I wonder how many members of Congress are actually Christian Zionists ? Biden certainly is .

Congratulations, Mehdi! The world needs you more than ever. My question: What are your thoughts concerning the subterfuge and deceit offered repeatedly by President Biden, Antony Blinken and Linda Thomas Greenfield on the disastrous genocide in Gaza? Thank you.

It's shameful and depressing.

Question for MEDHI: Could you explain in simple terms, who is preventing food & aid for Gaza? Who is affected by this, innocent people & Hamas, or just the innocents? This level of cruelty is unfathomable!

Every UN offcicial and aid agency says it's Israel. It is indeed unfathomable.

Mehdi. What are your thoughts on Christian Zionism. ? There hasn’t been much focus on this but it looks to me that it has a huge impact on the US s complicity in the genocide . Religious ideology being politicised to fund a genocide .

In view of what Medhi just said about who to vote for, I'd recommend that you book Dr. Cornel West as a guest on Zeteo for his perspective on that question. It would be great to see Medhi engage with him.
