Omar on AIPAC Influence & AOC's Green New Deal
Richard Houck, author of Liberalism Unmasked, joins Henrik to discuss Trump's State of the Union address, the no-go on the wall and the recent controversy when Muslim Representative Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat, drew attention to the influence that AIPAC has on American politicians. We talk about how the Democrat party is turning hard-left and what that means for Israel and those who advocated for the demographic change of America.
In the second part of the show we discuss the different powerful lobby groups in America and the people behind them, we move on to discuss Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal. We highlight the importance of conservation and environmentalism but AOC, IPCC and the other democrats attaching themselves to these proposals ultimately does a huge disservice to environmentalism by attaching it to social justice issues.
