Orthodox jews have deeply conflicting feelings on Trump vs Clinton


Ed note ~This piece is an exploration into jewish psychology. 

A few items worth noting.

1)Both articles demand that all Orthodox jews behave as a collective, and either all vote for Trump, or all vote for Clinton. There is no room for individuality, according to either side of the schism. There are no bones made about the fact that jews have their own, completely unique “moral values” which go without saying are completely separate from those of everyone else. That issue was already settled thousands of years ago, when they bitterly divorced with humanity in favor of the care-free, supremacist cult life. 

2)They argue at great length, as a primary consideration, what is good for Israel, and never really mention what might be good/bad for America. But it is of course still just an old “anti-semitic” canard to suggest that Jews are actually like that. 

3)They don’t know what to think about Donald Trump. According to one set of cited examples, Trump’s WORDS, Trump is made to sound like a completely, 100% A-OK “pro-Israel” kind-of-guy. Then, in the equally ostentatiously hive-minded op-ed conversely titled, “All Orthodox jews must vote for Clinton,” a totally opposite-sided set of Trump criteria are listed which seem to convincingly portray an altogether different Trump, as someone whose statements have “deep anti-Semitic” and “severely troubling” etc etc overtones. And by the way, the first writer thinks Trump will increase aid to the jewish state, the other believes he will slash it. 

4)And of course it is all (with the exception of a line or too professing to care for certain minorities of goyim,) underscored with the ever-present themes of Judaic mental-illness: paranoid schizophrenia, the “Woe is me, everyone is against us” mentality, and finally a set of “jewish/Torah moral values” that COMPLETELY IGNORES what might be good or bad for the other 99.9+% of the world, which can apparently be damned for all they care. 

Final thoughts: Trump is very successful at the tactic of keeping them guessing, by sending them conflicting messages, and apparently jamming their radar so badly that they don’t know how to interpret him at all, and they fail to find a consensus. Can they really take The Donald at his word? Let’s remember that Kennedy also made big promises to the jews with rhetorical statements that dripped with zionist sycophancy…right before he aggressively went after their illegal nukes (in a secret diplomatic battle), their American Zionist Council, their CIA, and perhaps even the FED itself. Is this kind of tactic simply what is necessary, on the Grand Chessboard, to make any kind of tangible gains at all against an enemy that is so deeply entrenched and nearly all-powerful as dreaded International Jewry, the biggest criminals in the planet’s history? This is where you might consider praying that Trump not consider taking any rides in any sweet convertibles that might be unexpectedly rerouted at the last minute through any sniper-infested plazas.~ TL

Opinion: Why Every Orthodox Jew Must Vote For Donald Trump

(Sunday, November 6th, 2016 07:20 PM)

truMost people don’t realize it, but the most pressing issue on the table is the Supreme Court. Look at the makeup of who is sitting on the court – they are all old – very old. It is highly likely that the next president will be appointing four – yes four Supreme Court justices.

This will affect the direction that the nation takes for the next three or four decades. Like it or not – the moral direction in which this nation is going is plummeting rapidly and the very freedoms of our religion which we value so dear are at stake.

Hillary Clinton will appoint the most liberal judges that she can. These judges will make decisions that will affect our Torah values and institutions. Our schools will eventually be forced to do things that are against our conscious. Our shuls, our bakeries, our businesses who we hire. Our very way of life I the United States will undergo drastic restructuring.

Another pressing issue is Yerushalayim. Of both candidates she will be the one who will be pressuring Israel most to make a deal with the Palestinians where East Jerusalem will be at its capital.

Jerusalem is ours and it is quite likely that the likes of Lapid will eventually displace Netanyahu. Imagine, Hillary has achieved a deal that eluded every previous American president, including her husband Bill. What a legacy – the first woman president achieved what no other president has achieved – peace in the middle-east. The problem is that it will be at the expense of Israel. We will lose Har HaBayis. We will lose half of Jerusalem. And we will lose our safety net where we will be unable to respond to a rocket attack from a neighboring Palestinian country just half of a kilometer from Israel’s population centers.

Let us also not forget that she receives advice from Sidney Blumenthal and his self-hating, anti-Semitic son. She has only shelved them for the time being to get the Jewish vote.

True, Donald Trump has had some serious moral failings. There are numerous accusations of impropriety made against him, and they are credible. However those against Bill Clinton are worse and Hillary has tried to destroy these victims.

Hillary Clinton cannot be trusted. This past week alone WikiLeaks revealed that her foundation has received a million dollar donation from Qatar – an ISIS supporting Arab state. Another revelation showed that she collected twenty million dollars for Haiti that has disappeared. She has a record of lying and looks out only for herself. Let’s not forget that when Bill was first elected governor, her $1000 cattle futures investment “magically” turned to $100,000 I less than ten months. Even today she claims that it was her investment abilities that made this happen and she never admitted that it was bribe to keep her husband in the pocket of special interests. They are thieves – plain and simple.

It is clear that any self-respecting orthodox Jew must vote for Donald Trump this Tuesday. This is for reasons of the moral direction of the country, for Israel’s future, and for reasons of trust.

Opinion: Why Every Orthodox Jew Must Vote For Hillary

(Sunday, November 6th, 2016 07:20 PM)

hilAt the end of the day, there really is only one choice for an Orthodox Jew to vote for, and that is Hillary Clinton. Here are the main reasons why.

Donald Trump will try to make America Great again. He promised that he will cut funding to NATO. He also hinted and alluded that he will cut Israel’s funding. Currently, Israel receives 3.1 billion dollars a year from the United States. This funding is extremely important to Israel’s security. In order to keep up with Hezbollah, Hamas, Iran, ISIS and numerous other threats to Israel – this funding must remain in place.

Notwithstanding the fact that his daughter is a giores, Trump has had opportunities to repudiate associations with anti-Semitic supporters – and he hasn’t. Indeed, his latest closing ad has four bad guys: Hillary Clinton, George Soros (Jewish financier), Janet Yellen (Jewish Federation Chairperson) and Lloyd Blankfein (the Jewish CEO of Goldman Sachs).

The narration in the ad is as follows: The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election. For those who control the levers of power in Washington, and for the global special interests. They partner with these people (Hillary Clinton) who don’t have your good in mind.”

True, Soros is a leftist self-hating Jew. But the tone of the ad is frighteningly anti-Semitic.

Let’s also remember that Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Stephen Bannon, was branded an anti-Semite by his ex-wife long before he was Trump’s manager.

Mary Louise Piccard stated in a 2007 court declaration that Bannon didn’t want their twin daughters attending the Archer School for Girls in Los Angeles because many “Jewish students were enrolled at the elite institution.”

“He said that he doesn’t like the way they raise their kids to be ‘whiny brats’ and that he didn’t want the girls going to school with Jews,” Piccard wrote.

In his Twitter accounts, Trump has tweeted and retweeted pictures, thoughts, and ideas that he got from anti-Semitic sites, and has denied their anti-Semitism. What is he doing late at night visiting these anti-Semitic sites? And then he denies them?

The fact is that Donald Trump is irrational, unpredictable and quite volatile. The whole mind-boggling episode of Trump University – a ripoff from beginning to end, and then his attack on a judge that she could not judge fairly because of her Hispanic background is indicative of instability. Why won’t he be attacking Jews in the same manner when he cuts funding to Israel?

Let’s also not forget that when Bernie Sanders supporters were railing on Hillary Clinton regarding Palestinians, Hillary defended Israel. For those who watched and were listening, that was a very brave thing to do. The tone of the entire gathering was frighteningly anti-Israel.

The fact is that both the left-leaning side of the Democratic party has become intensely anti-Semitic and there is a growing right wing anti-Semitism as well. We have only to rely upon Hashem, but we must do our Hishtadlus as well. Netanyahu has a good relationship with Hillary Clinton and she has been very supportive of Israel.

Hillary certainly has some major imperfections. She has lied, profited illicitly, and numerous other infractions too. But in light of the alternative, she is the safest and best choice.
