Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world, and the Shia school of thought may be its fastest-growing segment. Tonight we talk to two white American converts to Shia Islam—one ethnically Italian, one ethnically Jewish—plus an Italian-American dairy goat farmer who hasn’t converted to Shiism…yet. (Disclaimer: I haven’t either. I’m just a plain ole Muslim.)

First half hour: Charles Messina is an Italian-American Shia Muslim. He wrote me: “Salaam Dr. Kevin, I have been very busy on the [NYC] subway talking about Islam, Iran, & the great General Soleimani, and I want to let the American people know how dumbed down they really are-! You won’t believe some of the drama I have been through, and also how most believe Iran is Great for standing up to the Dictator in Chief Trump-!”

Second half hour: Tom Luongo runs the Gold Goats ‘n’ Guns blog—one of the best things on the internet. Material discussed in his terrific article Does Gangster-nomics Meet its End in the Iraqi Desert? is extensively cited in Whitney Webb’s recent exposé of what was really behind Trump’s murder of Gen. Soleimani.

(Part 2 will feature Andrew Israel, who reverted to Shia Islam from Judaism last Ramadan.)

  1. So is Trump a puppet or not?
    No living being can be a real puppet even if he wants to be. Any signs of autonomy Trump shows are involuntary and just dis-comfort from being manipulated.
    But Trump is a puppet of the Israelis as much as any individual can be.
    His slavery/captivity/ blackmail/servility began when he became bankrupt and was bailed out by the kike Mafia (Twice, I think). Since then hes gone deeper into their debt.
    Jeffery Epstein probably nailed him with the kiddies and Nethanyahoo has the videos.
    As a president, he’s a slave and will never throw off the shackles.
    Even if he loses the elections, USA will not free itself from the parasite and is now a firmly entrenched. It’s an occupied nation and destined to fall. The next President will not make any difference.

  2. Kevin, you’re telling the joke all wrong. It goes:

    Two Shia muslims and a goat herder walk into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, “Get the flock outta here”.
