Phenomenon of Trump’s antagonists explained 


This phenomenon can be seen in how the chief Trump’s antagonists characterize his personality, his election victory and his governing actions.

 

Senator Schumer: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer urged President Trump to give transcripts of his meeting with Russian officials and announced that he would oppose most of Trump’s Cabinet appointees.

 

Congresswoman Pelosi: President Trump was “dishonoring” God and questioned whether his grandchildren will even be able to breathe air after his announcement that he would withdraw from the Paris climate accord.

 

DNC Chairman Perez: President Trump did not win the 2016 election and took an expletive-laced shot at the Republican Party.

 

CNN: CNN host calls Trump ‘piece of sh*t’ over renewed call for travel ban.

 

As could be seen from the above, the Trump’s antagonists are not suggesting the new government policies that are better than those of the Trump’s government policies – they are attacking Trump’s personality and erecting roadblocks to his governing thus disregarding the will of the electorate who decided to try Trump’s governing ideas over Obama’s globalist, harmful to America actions.  

 

This time the Trump’s antagonists are not the traditional political losers in the US Constitutional system of government who are modifying their election strategy and tactics to become the winner the next time – they are assaulters on the US Constitutional system under the pretense of defending it.

 

Their goal is not to convince the electorate that they, the Trump’s antagonists, have better government principles for the majority of the nation – their goal is to make the Trump-governed nation an ungovernable nation to persuade the electorate to elect the next election cycle them, the Trump’s antagonists, at any price.

 

They cannot convince the electorate that they have better government principles because their principles are chiefly based on the wealth redistribution and there is now no wealth anymore available for redistribution without serious civil disturbances or even a civil war. Until recent election cycles, the voting majority, who are mainly the working middle class, have not revolted against the wealth redistribution from them to numerous non-economically-producing groups in the name of “human rights and social justice” because the middle class thought it might be good for decreasing the social tensions in the nation. However, in spite of the constantly rising burden of wealth redistribution, the social tensions have not decreased – moreover, they are constantly increasing. And in the last election cycle the majority decided the burden of wealth redistribution has become unbearable for them seriously harming their spiritual and material well-being.

 

They are not scared anymore by the Russian intervention into our internal affairs, including elections, – they know it is impossible to prevent the adversaries from doing that, and that is an obligation of our own government to fight it.

 

They are irritated at the attempts to disrupt the work of the government by threats of impeachment or street violent disorders with the aim of replacing the duly elected government of the majority’s choice by the government of “our revolution” or “social justice and human rights” mobs.    

 

They are suspicious of our judicial system, which let some judges govern instead of helping govern rightly.

 

At the core of the phenomenon of Trump’s antagonists is their inability to understand that the nation has awaken to the loss of spiritual and material well-being due to the past government policies and has found in Trump somebody who might be able to return what was lost.   

 

The false and true indicators of success or failure of Trump’s Presidency 


 

I am trying to judge everything based on the Jewish moral principles rooted in the Jewish history. My Jewish moral principles have moved me to proclaim the following four items, although loved by the news media, as the false indicators of the failure of Trump’s presidency.

 

#1. The “Trump is incompetent” declaration is a false indicator of the Trump’s presidency failure. Those who would be described nowadays as “incompetent people” since they rejected the traditional way of doing politics were the creators of Judaism. One of them was an “incompetent” Abraham who, in spite of the lack of any experience as an acknowledged spiritual leader, found One God for everybody.

 

#2. The “Trump is illegitimate president” declaration is a false indicator of the Trump’s presidency failure. Those who would be described nowadays as “illegitimate leaders” since they did not receive the majority votes made our world a better place for everybody. One of them was an “illegitimate leader” Moses who, in spite of the lack of any experience as an acknowledged political leader, brought a million Jews out of Egypt slavery to become a free nation.

 

#3. The “Trump is destroying the established order” declaration is a false indicator of the Trump’s presidency failure. Those who would be described nowadays as assaulters on the “established order” since they tried to change the malfunctioning established order earned the praise of future generations. One of them was a “rabbi-destroyer” Joshua (who soon after his death to be called Jesus Christ) who, in spite of the prohibition to teach the Torah to the non-Jews, began teaching the Torah to the non-Jews who had become the Christians.

 

#4. The “Trump owns his victory to Russians” declaration is a false indicator of the Trump’s presidency failure. Nothing is wrong with the Russians spying on the US and trying to influence everything to benefit the Russian policies. We in the US are doing the same – we are spying on Russia and we are trying to do everything there to benefit our own policies. And our own Jewish Esther spied on the Court of King Artaxerxes (the Story of Purim) to influence the King’s policies and save the Jewish people.  

 

So what are the true indicators of success of Trump’s presidency? I believe there are four such indicators.

 

#1. Significant improvements in the restoration of economy good enough to create well-paid jobs for everybody of the pre-retirement age that creates the near full employment and reduces significantly the welfare/unemployed population.

 

#2. Significant improvements in the restoration of Judeo-Christian legal foundation of the nation that manifests by a decisive spiritual contribution of priests and rabbis in legislating at all levels of government.

 

#3. Significant improvements in the restoration of US leading role in international affairs that reduces the probability of large-scale military confrontations.

 

#4. Significant improvements in American-Russian relations that develops the truly mutually beneficial collaboration in the fight against Islamic terrorism and in other areas of mutual interests.

 

If Trump succeeds in all that, he will be reelected for the second term and the history will remember him as one of the greatest US presidents. If he fails, the next time the people will elect somebody else and the history will treat him as a president who was defeated by powerful political swamp, which by the time of his presidency had become an All-Mighty one.    

 

The news media are free … to be ideological and biased  


 

Yes, that is true: the news media are constitutionally free – free to be biased and to be used as ideological warfare. Why? Because the news media outlets are businesses, which are tailoring their information products to the customer demands to attract more customers and make more money.

 

To do this, a particular news media outlet selects a particular group of potential customers and tailors its information products to the beliefs of the selected group. That means this particular news media outlet cannot be objective by definition since the objectivity requires presenting the information that may be disliked by the selected particular group of potential customers and therefore may hurt the business.    

 

The news media outlets are used by various ideological consumer groups in politics, in social life, in economics, in arts, in religion, etc. to advance their ideological preferences in society and in various country’s governing institutions.

 

Below are a few illustrative examples.

 

Haaretz, the Forward, New York Times and Washington Post are the ideological warfare of the left-wing groups who do not like the life under the Torah/Bible traditional guidance and are trying to replace this guidance for the so-called “social justice and human rights” guidance. The left-wing groups are sponsoring these four publications since the published information is strengthening the left-wing causes in the public arena and the chances for left-wing electoral victories.

 

Yisrael Hayom or Breitbart News are the ideological warfare of the right-wing groups who see great dangers for the Israel and the USA to deviate from the Torah/Bible guidance in political, social and religious life.

 

In order to please its customers, the mentioned news media are reporting only on the facts that directly favor the ideology of their readers/viewers/listeners or could be make favorable by ascribing to the facts some negative motivations to ideological adversaries.

 

It looks like when Donald Trump is describing the news media information products as the fake news he has in mind the news media information products, which are ideologically adversary to the governing ideology of his administration. The news media that sell the fake news take the real facts but ascribe to them the fake motivations that their customers would like to believe in.

 

Here are a few examples on how it is being done.

 

From the news media:

 

U.S. President Donald Trump said anti-Semitism should be defeated and called the Holocaust the “darkest chapter of human history” in a video address on Sunday, following two missteps by his administration regarding statements about genocide during World War Two.

 

“The mind cannot fathom the pain, the horror and the loss. Six million Jews, two-thirds of the Jews in Europe, murdered by the Nazi genocide. They were murdered by an evil that words cannot describe, and that the human heart cannot bear,” Trump said in a speech to the World Jewish Congress Plenary Assembly in New York on Yom HaShoah, Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day.

 

——————-

 

It looks like this is a perfect pro-Israel and pro-Jewish statement by Donald Trump. However, the anti-Trump news media ascribe to this a fake statement that this is a Trump’s effort to cover up the “true anti-Semitic feelings” in his administration.

 

From the news media:

 

The author Michael Chabon’s tour to the West Bank was led by Breaking the Silence, the controversial Israeli group that collects and distributes Israeli soldiers’ testimony about their service in the occupied territory. Chabon, along with his wife, Ayelet Waldman, are two of the 24 leading novelists who will visit East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza over the next few months to research a book of essays marking 50 years of Israeli occupation. The couple will edit the book, which aims to illuminate what it’s like to live under Israeli military rule. Chabon’s essay will focus on Sam Bahour, a Palestinian-American businessman who moved to Ramallah to build the Palestinian economy in the wake of the Oslo peace accords, only to watch the Israeli occupation deepen around him.

 

———————-

 

It is indeed a true fact-based description of the Michael Chabon’s tour to the Palestinian Territories. However, a few fake descriptors are used to please the anti-Israel supporters. Some of them are “the West Bank” and “Occupied territories”.

 

In this publication, the historic Jewish name Judea and Samaria is replaced by the Arab-oriented political name “the West Bank” to discard the historic connections of the Jews to this land.

 

The “occupied territories” descriptor is debunked by the Levy report.

 

The Levy Report, officially called Report on the Legal Status of Building in Judea and Samaria published on 9 July 2012, authored by a three-member committee headed by former Israeli Supreme Court justice Edmund Levy. The committee, dubbed the “outpost committee”, was appointed by Israel‘s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu in late January 2012 to investigate the legal status of unauthorized West Bank Jewish settlements, but also examined whether the Israeli presence in the West Bank is to be considered an occupation or not.

 

The report concludes that Israel’s presence in the West Bank is not an occupation, and that the Israeli settlements are legal under international law.

 

Indeed, the news media are free to be ideological and biased, and we have to treat them accordingly.  

 

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.

Why we have to elect somebody like Donald Trump


One of my friends (A) have expressed in a discussion with me his dislike of Donald Trump. I (B) responded by making the point that we may dislike Trump but, to save our country as we know it, we have to elect in 2016 him or somebody like him to be our President. Here are some points of this discussion.

(A): Are you taking Trump seriously among other Republican contenders?

(B): Yes, I am taking him seriously but with a deep anxiety. If any other Republican contender becomes a president, many things will be much better as compared to what we have now and what we may expect from Hilary Clinton who would essentially continue the Obama policies. However, it would be not enough to reverse the country’s decline – the decline will continue although at a slower pace.  With Trump, there is a chance to reverse the trend and restore the nation’s greatness, although the risk is great.

 

(A): Well, if he is nominated, Hillary will have a much better chance to become president. The other problem is Trump is just as inexperienced as Obama was in 2008 and just as narcissistic. Bad combination, in my opinion.

(B): You are right but that is the risk worthwhile to take. All “experienced politicians” who pretend to be “ordinary citizens” have put the country on the way to spiritual and economic decline – that is what we have to remember while choosing whom to vote for.

 

(A): Trump is surging because “the elites” of both parties have failed miserably in the last 15 years or more, and Obama turned out to be simply anti-American (as most Americans understand it).  However, from what I have heard from Trump, I think he has not ideas but good-sounding slogans that are either very difficult or impossible to implement in real life. So if he is elected, I am afraid what will follow is not some renewal of America, but just more chaos. Put another way, I have learned not to trust in a “knight on a white horse”. More likely, though, I think his nomination would rather pave the way for the Clintons and Democrats to remain in power, and that would not be fun.

(B): My assessment of the situation is different. “The elites” as you called them are experienced only in inventing new goodies for the potential electorate to be elected and then do the wealth redistribution from us to them. The Republican “elites” sound much better to our ears but the result is the same and the result is very destructive. I do not believe that the victory of the establishment “experienced” Republicans would create the change we desperately need. In addition to the Republican victory, we need something else. We need somebody to create first a sort of anti-establishment revolution and then somebody else who may create something fresh and new. Trump is a possible candidate for this job – of course, with all risks involved. His business experience for American restoration might be more valuable than the experience of all “experienced politicians” running for the president. Why? Since we do not need more new government programs that all “experienced politicians” are creating – we need good management including a sharp reduction of the ineffective 2/3 of the government, and nothing else. And Trump has the best experience among all of the contenders to do this – to do just “good management”.

 

(A): The late principled conservative William Buckley once said that a voter must vote for the most conservative candidate who can still be elected. Ronald Reagan was an experienced politician before he became president. In the post WWII USA, there was no president who came to the office without professional political/government background.

(B): We have had conservative Presidents and Congress elected as Conservatives such as Reagan, Bush H., Bush W. However, the march to abyss has not stopped – the taxation is growing under various concealments, the nation’s debt is mounting, the government “free stuff” is rising, the government regulations of individual citizens are increasing, the individual freedoms are shrinking under the pretense of democracy.

Thus, just a conservative government, even following the advice of the great William Buckley, is not enough to stop the march to abyss – we have to change the political thinking, a sort of way of spiritual thinking in this country, in addition to a conservative government, if we are to begin the restoration.

The existing ruling news media and the both-parties establishment have created the current political politically-correct thinking. Therefore, first, we have to dethrone the news media and the establishment, and Donald Trump is the only candidate who is doing it successfully – nobody else. However, all your risk-related points with the Trump’s candidacy are valid.

 

In conclusion, an almost quote from a popular news media outlet:

Trump is popular and it is undeniable. It is because people are afraid, and Trump is pushing the fear. The Trump is telling the people they should be afraid of Muslims, of Mexican immigrants, of China’s business practices, of President Obama, of Black Lives Matter, of stricter gun laws, of ISIS … However, all those threats are the Trump’s conspiracy to scare the electorate and win the election. Do not trust Trump – trust us the news media and the political establishment we are representing.

The problem is the threats Donald Trump is describing are real and supported by the facts, and the people feel all that. This popular news media, as many others, is deceiving the people by denying the existence of those threats, and it is doing all that to continue profiting from a politically correct march to the abyss.
