I am trying to respond to very important questions related to the Mueller Brigade and the unique democracies in the USA and Israel presented by one of my opponents.
The opponent: “I fail to see similarities between the KGB and Mueller investigation at all. Whatever Mueller and his team come up with will be made public and, if Trump is accused of something, he’ll be able to publicly defend himself with the help of best lawyers money can buy. The KGB operated slightly differently, don’t you think?”
The Mueller Brigade and anything similar to it should not exist in our unique Judeo-Christian (in the USA) and Jewish (in Israel) democracies.
There is only one fundamental principle of any democracy – the ability of county’s population to elect freely the government that defends and protects the traditions (the spirituality) of this population. The elected US government has to legislate to defend and preserve the US Judeo-Christian traditions; the elected Israeli government has to legislate to defend and preserve Israeli Jewish traditions; the elected Russian government has to legislate to defend and preserve the Russian authoritarian traditions.
The country’s population can elect anybody who they believe is the strongest in defending and protecting the country’s traditions. If some population segments do not like the election results, they have to change the results in the next elections. Unfortunately, those unhappy population segments are using the judicial manipulations – through unelected governing forces – to change the election results. Those forces do it with “the best lawyers money can buy” – to overthrow the will of the people expressed in the elections. That is what unites the Mueller brigades with KGB – KGB was suppressing the will of the people by “the GULAG-type punishments” created by the best KGB lawyers rewarded by the government perks.
The opponent: “So you think firing Comey the way Trump did it was a good thing? How so?”
Yes for both – the firing Comey and the way he was fired.
Comey and led by him FBI had become the most effective tool for changing or challenging the election results and it was changing the very essence of our Judeo-Christian democracy, which is based on the will of We the People, not on the will of judicial manipulations. We should remember that FBI was created for finding and persecuting the real criminals – not the political adversaries that FBI had become under Comey’s leadership.
Concerning the way how Comey was fired, you may not like it but the US President as the chief executive of the executive branch of the government has the right to fire anybody in his executive branch.
The opponent: “The reality is that Trump’s current approval/disapproval ratings are now 37/58 %, going down from 40+ approval at the beginning. Very low compared to several of his predecessors over the same period. How is it so?”
I think the answer is obvious. The “Trump’s current approval/disapproval ratings are now 37/58 %, going down from 40+ approval at the beginning” were produced by the same news media outlets which predicted the crushing electoral defeat of Trump.
By now, the true Trump supporters know those news media outlets are collecting the anti-Trump information only. Therefore, the true Trump supporters do not participate in these public opinion polls, and the news media are getting the results they want to have.
From the news media:
FBI agents raided the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman in late July, taking documents and other materials related to the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.
That is what FBI is going to subvert the will of We the People and American Judeo-Christian democracy.
From the news media:
More than 3,000 people are expected to attend a mass rally on Wednesday night at the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds in support of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu amid his efforts to deal with multiple criminal investigations.
It looks like Israelis are awakening – they are ready to defend – to defend not Netanyahu as a person but rather the Jewish Israeli democracy by defending Netanyahu. It is very similar to what is going on in the USA.
Yes, that is true – the liberal-conservative divide nowadays is irrelevant and the Trump’s presidential victory is the best proof of it. At the core of Hilary Clinton’s campaign was the exploitation of this divide and she lost. Donald Trump realized the liberal-conservative divide is not what disunites the country. He found and understood the true spiritual divide in our country, suggested how to fix it – and he won.
Nowadays the most fundamental divide is between those who are trying to preserve and enhance the Judeo-Christian moral foundation of our society in the permanently evolving God’s world and those who are trying to replace it by a sort of Globalist all-moralities-are-equal foundation. The current critical divide is between the people of Judeo-Christian morality and the people of Globalist morality, which in practice is very destructive. Communism, Nazism, Islamism are varieties of the Globalist morality. In the US, a true enforcer of the Globalist morality was President Barak Obama and Hilary Clinton’s dream was to continue “globalizing” the society.
What is the most fundamental difference between those two moralities?
The Judeo-Christian morality in its American version is based on the Torah/Bible definition of the humanity that comprises of individuals made in the image and likeness of God the Creator and Unique Individual. Therefore, each human individual has to be treated as a unique individual with the ability and spiritual power to create his/her own individual realm – of course, in the framework of the Bible guidance.
The Globalist morality is based on the belief that the human individuals are not able to find a common spiritual ground to live in peace. Therefore, a human god-like ruler has to lead and impose on the humans the rules for living in peace – the peace in the ruler’s definition!
The problem with the Globalist morality is that this morality can be imposed on the people and enforced only by force. It is so since the people cherish their own morality, which is for the US majority the Judeo-Christian Bible-guided one, and resist any attempts to change it.
The forceful conversion to the Communist-type Global morality led to a brutal dictatorship for all peoples in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe with many millions of innocent people murdered. The Jews there suffered the spiritual holocaust.
The forceful conversion to the Nazism-type Global morality let to a brutal dictatorship for almost all Europe and many in the Soviet Union with millions of innocent people murdered. The Jews there suffered the physical holocaust.
The forceful conversion to the Islamist-type Global morality is going now in many parts of the World (look just at the Middle East and France) – again with the numerous innocent people murdered.
Barak Obama has pushed all his Global-morality initiatives through the executive dictatorship-type actions since the Globalism is an enemy to a true democracy. Hilary Clinton has divided the electorate on those who supported her Global-morality vision for the US and those who were “deplorable” because they defended their own Judeo-Christian morality and resisted all “Global initiatives”. Hilary Clinton understood clearly that the people of Judeo-Christian morality could not be peacefully converted to the Global morality and therefore had to be spiritually annihilated. The divide between the Judeo-Christian and Globalist realms of our society is not the liberal-vs.-conservative divide. Indeed, both Judeo-Christian and Globalist fractions of our society have both liberal and conservative characteristics.
Dictionary definition of liberal:
Favoring reform, open to new ideas, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; not bound by traditional thinking; broad-minded.
Dictionary definition of conservative:
Favoring traditional views and values; tending to oppose change.
Those who are trying to preserve and enhance the Judeo-Christian moral foundation of our society in the permanently evolving God’s world are liberals since they are trying to reform various institutions of our society to make sure that in the permanently evolving God’s world the Judeo-Christian moral fundamentals are preserved. At the same time, they are conservative since they are trying to preserve the Judeo-Christian moral fundamentals.
Those who are trying to replace the Judeo-Christian moral foundation by a globalist all-moralities-are-equal foundation are both liberal and conservative as well. Indeed, they are liberal since they do not feel any spiritual attachment to the Judeo-Christian foundation of the country and are ready to get rid of it. And they are conservative since they do not want to consider any compromises on their dogmas such as homosexual marriage, abortions, immigration, welfare, etc.
Hilary Clinton was defeated not by Russian meddling into our elections or by fake news – she was defeated by the true Americans who finally realized, with the help of Donald Trump and his spiritual friends, that the Globalist morality she and her spiritual friends were imposing on the country is an assault on the true American Judeo-Christian way of life.
From the Jewish news media:
For US Jewish leaders, the major problems are indifference and assimilation, while the solutions are early engagement and education – about Judaism and Israel.
That is very true.
However, most of the Jews have studied Judaism and demonstrated for Israel since they were teenagers, and it have not made them more united, less indifferent or more engaged. My own experience and numerous discussions with rabbis convinced me that in order to strengthen Jewish unity we have to present Judaism differently. We may rich the true Jewish unity only if the fundamentals of Judaism and Israel are presented in the light of contemporary Jewish life. Unfortunately, most often that is not the case.
Most often. Judaism is presented as a set of principles developed in the course of Jewish history for Jewish life’s conditions in segregated areas where everything outside the segregated areas was hostile and even murderous to the Jews. In the contemporary American life, that is not the case anymore, and Judaism should be discussed as how the historic segregation-based Jewish principles could be transformed to be applicable to the life of Jews as the Chosen in Judeo-Christian Western civilization where the Jews are treated as equals. In order to do this, the rabbis have to initiate a dialogue with ordinary Jews, and that is very difficult for the rabbis since they were trained to teach the canons of their ordination institutions – not to listen and adjust.
Most often, Israel is discussed as an ultimate gathering place for all Jews. However, for the US Jewish majority this is not what they think should be done. Many among the US Jews feel that it is better to strengthen Israel as the Light for the Nations while living in the USA, and do it through strengthening spiritual Judeo-Christian fundamentals of our society and the Bible-guided role of the Jews as the Chosen. Unfortunately, we are involved in something opposite – we are promoting secularism and supporting the ban on Christian religious signs and prayers in public space.
Concerning Judaism, the most important Torah-guided unifying principle should be at the core of Jewish education – we all, Jews and non-Jews, are created different but equal in the image and likeness of God. The leftist and rightists, the liberals and conservatives, the whites and blacks, the Jews and Christians, the males and females … – all are created equal with different roles in an under-construction better world for everybody. However, that is not what most of our rabbis and public leaders were doing during the US presidential campaign – they were encouraging the future president to treat the citizens as groups of equal and unequal and make the “unequal” equal by government orders. That is not the role of a human government to decide who is equal and who is not and regulate it – our Creator creates us equal. There is a danger for the Jews to support the idea of splitting the people in different groups. If that is the case, the split could be justified for the Jews vs. the Non-Jews and that is the spiritual foundation for the anti-Semitism.
In the same Torah-guided way, the Orthodox Jews of all streams, the Reform and Conservative Jews as well as Secular Jews should be considered equal before God and the unity should be searched in different roles of different Jews as the Chosen in making our world a better place for everybody – Jews and non-Jews.
Concerning Israel, the unity should be searched not in imposing on Israel various ideological precepts on how to resolve Israeli-Arab confrontation or on Aliyah to Israel. Rather, the unity should be searched on helping Israel to become “the Light to the Nations” – to be the best in all areas affecting the human life such as science and technology, finance and economy, safety and security, religious and secular.
From the Jewish news media:
After Trump victory, rabbis call for unity and tolerance. Jewish spiritual leaders across US call on Jews to build bridges with their fellow citizens.
That is nice but should be done long ago. Unfortunately, in the course of the campaign many Jewish leaders, both religious and secular, were ruining the bridges with many fellow citizens.
It sounds completely weird that electing Trump and allying with Vatican would help fight anti-Semitism better than everything else does. However, Trump’s decision to move the US embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem and Pope Francis’ confirmation that God gave the Promised Land to the Jews are the key to fight the contemporary anti-Semites.
The anti-Semites are eternal people – they were born about the same time when the Jews began delivering to the non-Jews the Torah-based One-God’s message on how to advance and organize human life. Those pagans who wanted to preserve their pre-Torah-era traditions resisted and were becoming anti-Semites, and their spiritual descendants are very much alive and active nowadays.
The true Torah/Bible-guided Christians and Jews continue advancing the Judeo-Christian Western civilization while the anti-Semites (who may call themselves Christian, or even Jewish) continue to denigrate the Jews using all public means available.
These days the anti-Semites are trying to advance their hate spiritually – by denying the Jewish nature of both Jerusalem and the Promised Land. The anti-Semites have realized that their attempts to denigrate the State of Israel politically at many international organizations failed – the State of Israel is getting politically stronger. Therefore, the anti-Semites have decided to fight the Jews and the State of Israel spiritually by denying the Jewish nature of both Jerusalem and the Promised Land.
From the US news media:
Jerusalem’s Temple Mount is so named for the two Jewish temples that stood on the site for almost nine centuries – the first built by King Solomon nearly 3,000 years ago, the second destroyed by the Roman legions under Titus in 70 CE. One needn’t be a Bible scholar or a historian to know that the cultural, religious, and emotional bonds that link the Jews to Jerusalem are unparalleled. For millennia, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount have been central to Jewish self-awareness – and thus to Christianity as well, since the Temple figures prominently in the Gospels’ account of the life of Jesus. UNESCO’s tendentious semantics play into an ongoing propaganda campaign by the Palestinian Authority to “de-Judaize” the identity of Jerusalem, the foremost Jewish city on earth. Jerusalem’s holy sites have never been safer, or open to more people, than in the 49 years since it was reunified under Israeli administration.
Thus, the anti-Semitic message of the UNESCO resolution is clear – there were no Jewish Jerusalem and there were no First and Second Jewish Holy Temples. In other words, there is no spiritual connection of the Jews to Jerusalem – by fabricating this spiritual connection, the resolution implies, the Jews are trying to justify their occupation of Arab lands.
From the Arab news media:
In 2015, Tobias Ellwood, Britain’s foreign and commonwealth affairs minister for the Middle East and Africa, said that the United Kingdom was going to mark 100 years since the Balfour Declaration. But what does it mean to mark such an event if the U.K. is unwilling to repair the damage it caused to the national and human rights of the Palestinian people?
The Balfour Declaration was a letter sent by a British lord, on behalf of the U.K., to a British banker and politician representing the Zionist movement in 1917. It promised the establishment in Palestine, a land that did not belong to them, of a national home for the Jewish people. When Palestine came under British administration a few years later, London made sure to include this letter as part of the British Mandate.
Thus, the anti-Semitic view on the Promised Land, which is the same as the Arab’s view, is clear – the Promised Land is a contemporary myth created by the Balfour Declaration.
If it is so, we have to fight the contemporary anti-Semites by restoring in the USA and the EU the spiritual truth about the Jewish essence of Jerusalem and the Promised Land. And in this fight, US President Donald Trump and Pope Frances are of essential help.
From the Jewish news media:
Ivanka Trump assured Jewish voters in Florida that Donald Trump would “100 percent” move the US embassy to Jerusalem if he is elected president.
The GOP nominee’s daughter, who converted to Judaism in 2010 and is married to a Jewish man, called her father an “unbelievable champion” for the State of Israel and for the Jewish people, during a talk at The Shul of Bal Harbour in Surfside, the Jewish Insider reported. “You won’t be disappointed,” she told the audience during the talk, which was filmed in part.
In addition to saying Donald Trump will move the embassy to Jerusalem, which she called “the eternal capital,” she also said he supported her conversion to Judaism before her marriage to Jared Kushner.
A decision has been made among the rabbis of all sorts of streams in the Haredi public in Israel that Trump is the one who will defend Jerusalem, the Land of Israel and the Jewish people.
A mekubal, or sage steeped in the Jewish mystical tradition of Kabbalah, had informed … that according to the tradition’s seminal text, the Zohar, Trump will be the next president of the United States.
Thus, Donald Trump as a US President will recognize Jerusalem as an eternal spiritual place of the Jews and, following this recognition, will move the US embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem. The anti-Semitic myth of spiritual Islamic ownership of Jerusalem is debunked.
From the Jewish news media:
God promised the Holy Land to the people of Israel, Pope Francis said during a speech at the Vatican. The people of Israel, who from Egypt, where they were enslaved, walked through the desert for forty years until they reached the land promised by God, he said in his address about migration.
This statement by Pope Frances is a reminder to all people of Western Judeo-Christian civilization that the spiritual fundamentals of this civilization are based on the Torah/Bible guidance, which includes the recognition of the Promised Land, where the so-called Palestinian territories are located, given by God to the Jewish nation. The anti-Semitic myth of spiritual Islamic ownership of the so-called Palestine is debunked.
The acknowledgement that the Promised Land spiritually belongs to the Jews does not mean that the non-Jews cannot live here. The Christians and Muslims whose holy places are in the Promised Land as well may live happily here, assuming they follow the Torah/Bible-guided civil laws of Israel government.

From the news media: Addressing a New York think tank, Netanyahu explained Russia’s desire to cooperate with Israel in the war against Islamic terror.
Addressing the Hudson Institute’s annual gala at New York’s Plaza Hotel, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed Moscow’s determination to protect Russia from the threat of Radical Islam.
“I think Russia has variegated interests. The first interest is to make sure militant Islam does not penetrate and destabilize Russia.”
“There are many, many millions of Muslims in Russia, including in greater Moscow, I think it’s up to two million. And the concern that Russia has, which many countries have is that these populations would be radicalized… First thing is, block militant Islam at its source, especially the Daesh [Islamic State] phenomenon. For that they make strange alliances,” he added.
The Israeli leader visited Moscow in June, where he was given full honors upon arrival. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that his country will expand cooperation with the Jewish state in the fight against Islamic terror.
Netanyahu is right – Putin clearly sees the dictatorial Islam as something alien and hostile to the dictatorial Russia, and he is containing it (like in Chechnya or Tatar region of Russia) or fighting it (like in ISIS’ Middle East) to defend his country.
The Obama’s understanding of Islam is completely different.
From the news media: Addressing to various Islamic and non-Islamic audiences, Obama described his spiritual connections to Islam.
Obama said, “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”.
If that is the case, Obama cannot fight Islamic terrorism in principle. Indeed, the “sweetest” Muslim call for prayer comes from the mosques – when you love “sweetest sounds” of Islamic prayers, you have to love the mosques. However, the mosques are supporting spiritually Islamic terrorism as a religious duty. Thus, more mosques bring more “sweetest sounds” and more Islamic terrorism.
Obama said, “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”
That is true, Islamic faith has done much to shape the world over the centuries. However, this “shaping” was not positive and peaceful to the developing Western Judeo-Christian civilization. Here are just a few reminders. The Islamic faith warriors, after they peacefully increased their presence in Spain and Portugal in the period of eight-10th centuries, tried to convert forcefully these Christian countries into Islamic ones. The Islamic faith warriors, after they peacefully increased their presence in the Middle East in the period of 10-11th centuries, defeated the Eastern Christian empire with the center in Constantinople, converted there all churches to mosques and renamed Constantinople into Istanbul. In 16-19th centuries, the Islamic Ottoman Empire captured much of the Christian Eastern Europe. That is why now Spain, Portugal and many countries of Eastern Europe are against any Islamic immigration into their countries.
Obama said, “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
Tolerance to the Jews, Christians, Buddhists and other non-Muslims? –That is not true since the Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims are disappearing in all Islamic countries. Tolerance to the laws of Western democratic countries where Islamic immigration-based presence is getting stronger? – That is not true since Islam is creating there its own legal Sharia-based enclaves fighting the laws of the Western Judeo-Christian countries. Tolerance to other religions? – That is not true as well since all authoritative Islamic theologians strongly believe that the non-Muslim religions are anti-Allah formations and finally have to disappear.
Obama said, “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”
There numerous military conflicts doing on in the world these days, and most of them are Muslims fighting Muslims or Muslims overthrowing non-Muslims – in Syria, in Iraq, in Iran, in Egypt, in Libya, in Somali, in Yemen …. It looks like in the Islamic world there is nobody who promotes the peace – the peace in the Western Judeo-Christian definition of this word.
Thus, Obama is not fighting and cannot fight Islamic terrorism because, contrary to everything what is going on in Islamic world and its actions harmful to the Western Judeo-Christian civilization, he strongly believes in the superiority of Islam.
