It’s the year 2030 and Ben Shapiro is still one of the brightest minds in the world.
But for many in the US, he has become a target.
The conservative commentator is the subject of an intense investigation by US Congress, which has called on him to be removed from the prestigious American Conservative Union.
The organisation has also called on the government to revoke his academic credentials and have him prosecuted for defamation.
His critics say he is a traitor who has betrayed his country and the values he stands for.
His detractors accuse him of being a racist, a demagogue and a bigot, and accuse him for his advocacy of the views of a fringe group of white supremacists.
And for the most part, his critics seem to be right.
But not all of them.
One of them is the writer and broadcaster Ben Shapiro, who in the past has expressed concerns about the political influence of the media.
His career began in 2006 when he launched his online show, Ben Shapiro Live, which aired on Fox News.
It has since become a popular programme on Fox and has been watched by millions of viewers.
The show is seen as an alternative to the more mainstream American conservative network CNN, and it often focuses on issues and events that are more sensitive to the liberal right.
This year, Shapiro became a regular on the cable news network, CNN.
He has also appeared on a number of other networks including MSNBC and Fox News Channel, as well as on the US network Fox Business Network.
But he has been accused of bias by some critics who say his programme has not been objective, has been dominated by pro-Trump talking points and is biased against his political opponents.
Some say his views on social media are anti-Semitic, and his tweets are anti‐Semitic.
He says they are meant to help his political supporters win elections.
The US Congress has called for the removal of Shapiro from the organisation.
And in a letter to the US President, Representative Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of New York, wrote that “there is a strong possibility that the removal would be a political stunt, not a genuine effort to restore the public trust in the media”.
The letter noted that in recent months, the organisation had become “the focal point of anti-Semitism and hate speech on social and political media”.
And it added that “the US government has repeatedly failed to uphold its international commitments and to stand with those in need of free speech”.
Mr Shapiro’s critics have also accused him of making anti-Israel comments and of using his celebrity to promote a far-right agenda.
But in a video released on his YouTube channel, Mr Shapiro has defended his views and has said he does not believe he has committed any anti-Jewish acts.
He has also defended his criticism of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians, saying he had “taken issue with the Israeli government for its treatment of Palestinians”.
The allegations are not entirely unfounded, says the historian Robert Cialdini.
Mr Shapiro was a political activist in the 1980s and 1990s, he says, and the Israeli state’s treatment was “not that good”.
But he added that Shapiro’s position had changed since then, with the rise of far-left political parties in Europe and in America.
And while there is some evidence to support the charge, Mr Cialtini said that it did not establish that Shapiro had committed any crimes, but it showed the need for the organisation to change its policies.
“He has shown he has changed his views, but I think the evidence is very clear that he has not changed his mind,” he said.’
No one will listen’Mr Shapiro has faced his critics for years, and has made a name for himself in the conservative media by attacking the media and political establishment.
In 2006, the former Republican presidential candidate Sarah Palin criticised him on his show, The Ben Shapiro Show, saying that the media had been “stifling” him and “helping to destroy our country”.
And in 2009, the conservative commentator told the conservative website Breitbart that “Israel is not an ally, it is a fascist country”.
He said in an interview that it was time for the US to “get out of the Israel-Palestine issue, because it is the problem”.
And this year, he was among the speakers at the Conservative Political Action Conference, a yearly gathering of rightwing activists.
He also hosted the Conservative Review, a rightwing magazine, and hosted a series of right-wing radio shows.
Mr Shapiro, whose show is often critical of the liberal left, is a popular figure in conservative circles, particularly in the United States.
He was a guest on Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor, where he was asked to comment on President Donald Trump’s handling of the Iran nuclear deal and his relationship with his Israeli counterpart, Benjamin Netanyahu.
The Israeli prime minister called Mr Shapiro a “patriot” and said the former Fox News commentator was “one
