Special Guest Erica Saghar Kasraie From Viral Youtube Video - Truth From An Iranian
Had the absolute pleasure to speak with Erica Saghar Kasraie from the recently viral YouTube video, Truth From An Iranian. An Iran-born American Middle East expert, activist, and voice for vulnerable religious minorities. In recent years Erica has been a policy, media, and film consultant and was the Middle East Advisor to a prominent senior member of the U.S. House of Representatives Armed Services Committee. She organized and supervised Congressionally-hosted global conferences in Washington for activists to plan the constitutional future of a free, democratic Iran. Before this, Erica developed a decade of expert knowledge of Iranian political, economic, and social conditions. She was Executive Director of the Iranian Freedom Institute and a research assistant at the School of Culture and Security at the Institute of World Politics, educating the public and lawmakers around the world. Erica also served five years as spokesperson of the Iranian Student Movement, working in Washington, D.C. and visiting with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, Iran experts, scholars, and think tank representatives. She has collaborated with the various factions of the Iranian opposition to bring visibility to the freedom movement. Erica and her family fled to Italy shortly after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, then settled in the Washington, D.C. area. She holds a B.S. in Biology from Virginia Commonwealth University and was an FBI laboratory scientist prior to her political and human rights activism.
Houman Salem is a successful and well educated entrepreneur running for the 27th district of California (Ventura County). He like many Californians are both concerned and saddened by Californias current state. He is seeking the nomination as a Republican.
Houman and I discuss the current issues, and how we can join together and actively save California.
We are the richest country in the world when it comes to wealth, resources... and in some periods of time, the most patriotic. But, we are falling for the same old tricks that other countries have fallen for... political schemes. To politicians it’s a chess match to gain our trust or our vote, but they aren’t like us. Nor do they care about us. It’s all a game to them. Until, we the people, wake up and realize that unity is the answer we will get worse and worse as a country. We’re to busy trying to prove our “woke-ness” or our point to realize we’re being deceived. And it’s not just one party. They are one in the same.
I’ll Venmo anyone $100 if they can name one thing the government doesn’t dictate, have a say in, or control completely. The point is we aren’t as free as they tell us. Government is bought and paid for. JEFFREY EPSTEIN likely isn’t dead. Have you seen photos or heard about his funeral? Supposedly his dad worked for the state of New York Paris department but actually didn’t. More elitist scum getting away with everything simply because of their status.
Data and consumer privacy are buzzwords but do you know what they mean? If companies are buying your data from other companies; why aren’t you benefiting? Why is there no consumer dividend? The Collective is on a mission to change that. I’m proud to be on this mission with my partners to benefit and protect the everyday consumer.
It’s been a long time since my last episode. I’ve been busy. But I’m back and I’ll be more consistent. Thanks for the support. And for listening. Today’s episode is about owning your life. Lay each brick as best as you can and before you know it you’ve got a damn good looking brick wall. Stand up for what you believe in and live your best life.
American politicians can not relate to common folk. They do not have our best interest in mind; they do not work for us. They need to understand compromise and conflict management. If I were president I honestly feel I could unite the people and make it a win/win for all of us.
All of our goals and wants are either going to happen or they aren’t. And it comes down to if you actually want them or do you just like the idea of them? There’s no secret to your goals. You know how to accomplish them. It comes down to if you’re willing to do what it takes.
36.8 people day per day due to gun violence in the US. 115 die per day due to opposite addiction and overdoses. Why don’t we discuss that? Why doesn’t government fight for regulations on prescription drugs instead of all focus on guns? The reason is guns are a political issue. Opiates are not. All of us can get behind change in the senseless deaths of 100,000 people per year due to opiates, regardless of political affiliation. But government doesn’t want us to be united. They want us to be divided. And gun control is that issue.
The American justice system fails children more often than not. Why don’t people demand a change? Today’s podcast episode isn’t as positive as they normally are, but certain topics need to be brought to the surface, and nothing is more deserving, or personal than that of this one. Quick change of pace towards the end; discussing new films just to end on a positive note. 😉
