For Trump, the government is business, not politics, and that is what we need


 

Indeed, for Trump, the government is business, not politics – and this is what we had missed for a long time.

 

In the politics, the elected government leaders are governing the country by finding the consensus of the governed. The consensus is at the core of any democracy, and until recent times it worked nicely.

 

President Bill Clinton on immigration:

In this video-presentation, President Bill Clinton underscored the failed immigration policies and related dangers for the country – the bipartisan consensus in the Congress on the topic was evident. Twenty years later, Donald Trump underscores the same problem and suggested solutions – no consensus at all.

 

————-

 

Nowadays the consensus is impossible to find – not only on the immigration but also on almost everything. The latest pro-Trump and anti-Trump manifestations, proclamations, accusations, marches and legislative battles are clear indication of that — in the demands of both sides there is nothing that could constitute a common ground. That is a clear indication that the US are in the state of a (cold) civil war as I described in one of my recent posts.

 

If that is the case, the only way to govern is to treat the government as a business, and Donald Trump is perfectly suited to do this. He was elected not to find a consensus in the nation but rather to “make America great again” as the majority that elected him envisions it, with the hope that the rest of population may appreciate the new social arrangements in the country. How the majority that elected him may find out that we are on the way of making America great again?

 

That is not that difficult – just recall what made America a great country at the beginning when she was truly great.

 

Below is a reminder of the social arrangements at the times of American greatness.

 

·         Judeo-Christian Bible-guided morality was directing the legislative work of the government with no religious authorities at the helm – this morality has to be restored and has to replace the human-made morality of “social justice and human rights”. The Judeo Christian Bible-guided morality is in essence the morality of the Ten Commandments in their American Judeo-Christian interpretation – to strengthen spiritually the nation and let the others follow if they are willing.

 

·         A small government consuming a minimal part of GDP without critical interference into the free-market economy through government imposed regulations – for example, to reduce the size of the government from the existing about 2/3 to 1/3 of GDP.

 

·         Helping the disadvantaged mostly through non-governmental charities with the government involved only on as-needed basis.  

 

·         An immigration policy that promotes the immigration of those who are eager to follow the Judeo-Christian morality of the country – not to weaken it by introducing rival moralities.

 

·         America was respected because of her moral, economic and military strength – not because of numerous free goodies provided to the others.

 

Is there a danger of a government, which is managed as a non-consensus business, of becoming a dictatorship? Of course, yes, and the citizens have to be vigilant. However, now that is the only way to “made America great again”.

 

From the news media:

 

“We congratulate President-elect Trump on his election victory and welcome his clear commitment to be a president for all Americans and to “bind the wounds of division” after a long and bruising campaign,” said Stephen M. Greenberg, chairman, and Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman & CEO, of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.

 

“We look forward to working with President-elect Trump and his advisors in the transition before his inauguration and in the years to come during his presidency on the issues facing our country, as well as of specific concern to the American Jewish community including strengthening the special U.S.-Israel relationship, the rise of anti-Semitism and the security of the Jewish people at home and abroad,” added Greenberg and Hoenlein.

 

The Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean and founder, and Associate Dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper praised Trump’s stated policy on Jerusalem. “We are buoyed by Donald Trump’s unambiguous commitment to a strong and safe democratic Israel and his recognition of Jerusalem as its eternal and undivided capital,” they said.

Unfortunately, not all Jewish organizations appreciate the Donald Trump promise of restoring Judeo-Christian morality in America. Liberal Jewish organizations believe the weakening of Judeo-Christian foundation of America is beneficial to America, Israel and the Jews – and they are wrong!

 

Donald Trump has already won … as a father of our spiritual awakening


Donald Trump may or may not win the US presidency but he has already won an acknowledgement of great many in the US as a father of the truly Judeo-Christian spiritual awakening.

The great many in the US, as well as many BREXIT-minded people of Europe, have found in Donald Trump a spiritual leader who has clearly expressed their depressing feelings that the great Judeo-Christian Western civilization is losing its greatness. Donald Trump has demonstrated it convincingly by analyzing the changes in political and social realms of the US that have brought the US on the road of moral and economic degradation, and he suggested political and social restructuring that may return the country on the path of continuing greatness.

The spiritual awakening on the human moral wellbeing

From the very beginning, the US was a country of Judeo-Christian moral principles. The Torah/Bible Ten Commandments was the guiding principles for the government legislative work. Those principles led to

  • A small government with limited power – since a human government cannot become an all-mighty god-like entity (The First Commandment says, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me”)
  • An individual responsibility of government leaders for their decisions affecting the nation (The Third Commandment says, “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain”)
  • An all-mighty family with the power to decide how to live, help the others and educate the children (The Fifth Commandment says, Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee)
  • A minimal government taxation mainly for providing safety and security for the public and not for government enrichment and empowerment (The Eighth Commandment says, Thou shalt not steal”)
  • No government-imposed wealth redistribution from the truly fortunate to the less fortunate (The Tenth Commandment says, Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s).

Both religionists and atheists supported the Judeo-Christian morality – they had different opinions not on the morality but rather on the source of this morality.

Both religionists and atheists supported the Church-State separation to preserve spiritual competitiveness among various religious denominations.

However, in the last century all these moral Ten-Commandment-based Judeo-Christian moral principles – step-by-step – were abandoned and replaced by the extremely nice sounding “human rights and social justice” principles that brought

  • The big government which restrict severely the individual freedoms and play a role of an all-mighty god – with the two political parties, Democratic and Republican, working together to enrich and empower themselves to the detriment of the people
  • The lack of individual responsibility of government leaders since they are judged not by the results of their decisions affecting the nation but rather by politically-correct slogans of their political parties
  • The government-imposed regulations on the family that are ruining the traditional family
  • The tremendous taxation burden that makes the big government an economic monopoly suppressing private businesses
  • The government-imposed redistribution of wealth that is destroying the incentives for creating the individual wealth.

Although the majority of the nation has not liked the loss of traditional Judeo-Christian morality, the majority was silent since the big government was able to a sort of dope the population by the freebies and politically correct slogans – with the help of the big news media, which in essence has become a part of the big government.

Donald Trump has spelled out all that clearly and convincingly. Moreover, he described the ways to stop the degradation and restore the greatness of the country as was in the glorious past. That was a truly spiritual awakening for the people on the human moral wellbeing.

The spiritual awakening on the human economic wellbeing

From the very beginning, the US was a country with the best economy in the world. The best economy led to the best material well-being for American citizens. Budget deficit, national debt, stagnant economic growth, government welfare system were unknown. Why? Because the country had a free-market economy which was encouraging everybody to get involved in economically productive work to make his/her family richer, to be personally responsible for the result of his/her actions, to do charitable work and not to covet something that was in possession of your neighbor. The politicians were not enriching themselves by working in the government – they were making a decent living like everybody else.

In the last century all these Ten-Commandment-based Judeo-Christian free-market economic principles – step-by-step – were abandoned and replaced by the government controlled economy – controlled through myriads of regulations, taxes, tariffs, litigations, globalization rules, politically-correct opinions, etc.

The first time in the American history, the children are less well off than their parents, a great number of people are not working and survival of a great many depends on government freebies.

The majority of the nation has not liked it. However, this majority was silent since the big government was able to convince the majority that is the best they can have – and the big government has done it with the help of the big news media, which in essence has become a part of the big government.

Donald Trump has help the people understand we can do economically much better if we reduce government control of the economy to restore the true free-market economy. That was a spiritual awakening for the people on the human economic wellbeing.

Donald Trump has help the people realize that the replacement of one political party by the other in the course of democratic elections would not restore our moral and economic wellbeing – both political parties, Democratic and Republican, have become a part of the big government suppressing the people. Donald Trump has help the people realize the unusual nature of the current presidential election – that is a historic opportunity to replace the power of the big government by the power of the people and restore the greatness of the country and wellbeing of the people.

Indeed, Donald Trump has already won … as a father of our spiritual awakening.

Judeo-Christian moral principles vs. “Social justice” ideology


In essence, the current US Presidential election battles are the battles for defending the country’s Judeo-Christian moral principles from the assault of “Social justice” warriors. If the “Social justice” warriors win, the injustice in our society will rise as is easily seen when the Judeo-Christian principles for family, equality and morality are compared with similar principles of the “Social justice” ideology.

Family

Judeo-Christian Bible-guided family-related principles are clear – a family is the most important collective unit in the human society created only for one reason – for happy and successful recreation! If it is so, two LGBT persons living together may be respected as cohabitants but not treated as a family.

A family should make unified decisions on what political and economic arrangements in the country are preferable and how to educate kids – and be responsible for its decisions. If a family is in distress, it has to rely on the charitable help of a wider spiritual community. A family should have one vote and anybody in the family may deliver this vote.

“Social justice” ideology destroys the family as the most important collective unit in the human society – husband and wife are encouraged to have different voting opinions and kids’ education is moving from the family care to the government care – with the government, imposing the mandatory rules of behavior for all. A government is trying to convince you that your family is not your friend and defender – the government is taking upon itself this role. A sort of government-guided slavery replaces the Bible-guided family freedoms.

The following example demonstrates the destructive consequences of the “Social justice” family-related beliefs. Yes, we had forced the blacks brought here from Africa to work at our plantations. However, when our majority realized that it was the true slavery indeed, we went to a civil war to abolish this slavery and begin treating the blacks as normal citizens – of course with “normal” prejudices that existed at the time, and exist even now, against some communities such as for example Jewish and Catholic ones. However, for the “Social justice” warriors it was not enough – they created the affirmative action laws with many welfare provisions that had destroyed the family structure in the black communities and made the black majority deeply dependent on the government. The result – the social injustice for those who are forced to comply with the anti-Judeo-Christian affirmative actions’ laws.

Equality

Judeo-Christian principles of equality are clear – all people are born equal (created equal in the image and likeness of One God) – blacks and whites, europeans and africans, manual workers and people at high intellectual positions. And all people have to have equal opportunities to reach their individual best. For different people, “the best” is different. “The best” may be reached everywhere – in agriculture and science, in manual work and high-tech, in politics, in position of social responsibilities, in spiritual life. If you reach your best, even if your best is at the earnings’ level much-much lower than that of your neighbor, you are happy.

“Social justice” ideology is trying to convince you that you are unhappy if your earnings are much-much lower than that of your neighbor, and the government is here to help you – to help you by confiscating the wealth of your richer neighbor and by transferring the confiscated to you free of charge. However, the confiscation and transfer would be done only if you follow the government orders. Again, that is a sort of government-guided slavery replacing the Bible-guided family freedoms.

The following example demonstrates the destructive consequences of the “Social justice” equality-related beliefs. The “Social justice” warriors created a concept of the “minimal wages” for a family needed for maintaining the “normal” family life. If the family earnings do not reach the level of “minimal wages”, the government would provide it – either through welfare supplements or through legislative pressure on the businesses. The family responsibilities are replaced by “Social justice” goodies. The result – social injustice for those who are robbed – without their consensus – to maintain the “minimal wages” of the others.

Morality

Judeo-Christian principles of morality are clear – they are the Ten Commandments which are presented and detailed in the Torah/Bible and in numerous authoritative instructions. For each stream of Judaism and Christianity, the instructions are different in details but unified in principles. In the Judeo-Christian countries, the non-Judeo-Christian communities may exist – however, these communities have to respect and follow the Judeo-Christian governing principles outside their communities as the Jews have been doing during all their history.

“Social justice” ideology is denigrating the Judeo-Christian morality by proclaiming that all moralities are equal and the governing principles of a Judeo-Christian country should accommodate the non-Judeo-Christian principles thus assaulting the morality of the Judeo-Christian majority. By promoting the “Social justice” ideology over the Judeo-Christian moral principles, its creators are creating for themselves the positions of human gods. Unfortunately, the spiritual Judeo-Christian authorities do not resist the “Social justice” ideology thus denigrating their own beliefs.

The following example demonstrates the destructive consequences of the “Social justice” morality-related beliefs. The “Social justice” warriors believe that in the Judeo-Christian countries the Islamic morality should be accepted as equal to Judeo-Christian morality – in spite of Islamic antagonistic rules on the coexistence with the others, in particular with the Jews and Christians. The result – the Muslim immigration to the USA and European countries with no serious restrictions, Islamic terrorism and ultimate injustice to the Judeo-Christian majority.

The immigration crisis was created by Europe itself – how it was done and how to get out


Yes, that is true. The current European immigration crisis was created by European “social- justice” policies, and that is not just a traditional political crisis that can be resolved by traditional political means. The very spiritual foundation of Europe, the Judeo-Christian civilization, is under threat. That is not just a conclusion of some independent observers – many in the European Union begin to understand this threat.

European Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans says the refugee and migrant crisis is nothing less than a moment of truth in European history. He said the organized solidarity of the European welfare state would be completely undermined if we simply say everybody can come in. Timmermans added though that Europe cannot survive either if we take leave of our values and our legal obligations for those seeking protection from persecution and war.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says that his country does not want to take in large numbers of Muslims, in defense of Hungary’s response to the surge in refugees trying to enter the country. “I think we have a right to decide that we do not want a large number of Muslim people in our country,” Orban told journalists outside the EU headquarters at Brussels. “We do not like the consequences,” he said, referring to the country’s 150-year history of Ottoman rule during the 16th and 17th centuries.

Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna says that Europe should do all it can to stop illegal migrants from entering Europe.

Many other European politicians are of the same opinion – the Muslim immigration to Europe has to be stopped if Europe wants to preserve its spiritual Judeo-Christian spiritual realm.

However, how to address the Timmermans’ concern that “Europe cannot survive either if we take leave of our values and our legal obligations for those seeking protection from persecution and war”. Timmermans and other political leaders of Europe may address it by replacing their immigration “social-justice”-guided policies by the Bible-guided policies.

The “social-justice”-guided policies are based on the two false social-justice basics:

-*-That the immigrants from non-Judeo-Christian birthplaces are capable and willing to change their spiritual beliefs and traditions to become a sort of behavioral Judeo-Christians without joining a church, and

-*-That the anti-Bible forced redistribution of wealth can support the welfare for a great number of immigrants most of whom do not have the employable skills and therefore cannot support themselves.

The reality that Europe begins to understand is completely different:

–The immigrants do not want to become the pseudo Christians. They love their Islamic culture and traditions and would do whatever is legal, and what might be done by illegal/terrorist means, to replace the Judeo-Christian civilization by their own Islamic realm. It is possible that the Islamic world is using this crisis to deliver as many Muslims to Europe as possible to accelerate the Islamization process of Europe – just try to think about why the Muslim countries do not take care of their brothers in distress in spite of Quran’s order to do this. The world is often lectured to about the urgency of respecting Arab and Islamic brotherly love, but where is the Arab action to rescue fellow Muslims and Arabs from the claws of ISIS?

–The European Union has reached the level of wealth redistribution (of course, through the forced taxation) that has slowed the wealth generation and the ability to increase the existing gigantic welfare system even more.

Thus, what to do?

As Bible advises us to do: defend the Judeo-Christian civilization by not allowing the mass Islamic immigration into Europe, and help the Islamic population under duress in the areas where Islamic culture is dominant. In the Middle East and in Africa, many scarcely populated areas could be used for relocation and then for farming and stock raising.

One more idea. Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris has offered to buy a Greek or Italian island to help house some of the refugees seeking help in Europe. “Greece or Italy sell me an island, I’ll call its independence and host the migrants and provide jobs for them building their new country,” he tweeted. “You have dozens of islands which are deserted and could accommodate hundreds of thousands of refugees,” he said. He estimated the cost of land being between $10 million and $100 million.

The attractiveness of this non-European resettlement of Islamic refugees is obvious. The European Islamic resettlement is final – nobody of the resettled Muslims would go back to their birthplaces even if ISIS is defeated there. If the refuges are resettled outside Europe, where there is no permanent “social-justice” welfare system, it might be the case.

Europe is awakening while Obama holds his country disoriented on the dangers of Islamism


Unfortunately, that is the case, and the latest publications in the news media make it unmistakably clear.

News from the United Kingdom

Prime Minister of UK Cameron has determined to challenge the conspiracy theories of a powerful Jewish cabal because these theories are camouflaging the real dangers of Islamic radicalization in UK and all over the world that, Cameron believes, we must to address and fight.

News from France

President Nicholas Sarkozy will crack down on the Islamization of his country, after all, as many begin to believe. Just days after saying that multiculturalism had failed in France, President Sarkozy is launching a debate on religion and the secular state, focusing primarily on what limits should be placed on Islam.

News from Netherlands

The Netherlands has banned the black flag of jihad ahead of a large demonstration in Amsterdam to support Hamas against Israel, and Amsterdam begins outlawing the public demonstration of Islamic laws.

News from the public opinion poll on Israel and USA

59% of Americans say their sympathies lie more with Israel with whom they have analogous fundamental moral values, as opposed to just 13% who say their sympathies are more with the Palestinians many of whom on the side of Islamic radicalization.

However, the news from the White House are completely different  

US President Obama blames Israel for its interference in US affairs over Iran deal although Israel is not interfering in US affairs – Israel is trying to counter Iran’s actions aimed at Islamic radicalization of the Middle East and the entire world. The empowerment of Iran through the engineered by Obama Iran’s deal would arm Islamic radicals with nuclear armaments and further advance Islamic radicalization.

Thus, European countries have begun recognizing the dangers of Islamic radicalization and devising the legal instruments for restraining these dangers. The US White House under Obama’s autocratic rule is trying to pretend there are no dangers of Islamic radicalization neither for the USA nor for Israel. Why?

Here is my own “not politically correct” answer.

Elected leaders of European countries, as well as the majority of their citizens, are people with strong feeling of the history and traditions of their countries, and they are trying to defend and protect their countries as they are – with the traditional mix of political, social and religious movements. The traditions of the European countries are Bible-based Judeo-Christian traditions, which are strong in spite of declining influence of official religious organizations.

The same has been true for the USA – normally, elected American leaders have been people with genuine respect for American Bible-based values and desire to preserve them. However, in the last few decades the Bible-based values have begun to be substituted by newly created values of “social justice” and “human rights”. This has opened the door for people with no respect for Bible-based traditional values to be elected, and Barak Obama was one of them. How might it happen if the majority of the country is still the Bible-based moral majority? It looks like the Bible-based moral majority just abandoned the elections since they have not found in the “social-justice-human-rights” electoral slogans anything worthwhile to vote for.

The US President Barak Obama has no good feelings for the traditional American Bible-based moral values. His moral values are closer to authoritarian Islamic values. Therefore, Obama is trying to keep the country disoriented about the dangers of Islamic radicalization to have Islamic idea obtaining a legitimacy in the country.
