Donald Trump Is Right

gay-prideIndendence Day was a time to seriously examine where we are as a country and as individuals. Donald Trump is right. We have to start calling all the propaganda and race baiting what it is –lies and not back down. The shrill cries of racism are absurd. Our mulatto president was elected by the people of this country: Black, White, Asian and Hispanic  He took an oath that stated:

“  I solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

He has not done that at all. Instead, he has done exactly what he promised.  He has basically transformed this country into a hellhole that is unrecognizable to those of us who grew up at a time when public schools started the day with a psalm or the Lord’s Prayer. Guess what? As a little Jewish girl it didn’t hurt me! It was understood that this was a Christian country. When I was older, and became more inquisitive, I learned about the connection between Jews and Christians and the blessings we have had in this country. However; once we decide that we don’t need or honor Ha Shem (G-d) we invite horrendous trouble.

In the book When a Nation Forgets God Edwin Lutzer discusses how Hitler used legal means to stifle and control the churches. Laws were passed to dismiss Christianity as a thorn in the side of Hitler’s socialist nightmare. Religion was dismissed as a duty to do on Sunday and Jews were declared subhuman. According to the new laws, a civilized country became hell and respected men, concerned  only with the economy, signed on. The words peace, tolerance, and freedom were used to pacify the masses, but the meanings no longer meant anything.

How are those tactics any different today? Our Torah (the Old Testament) tells us that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel and that homosexuality is an abomination. Our Supreme Court decided differently. We are now ordered to accept marriages of two men or two women as normal in order to be “tolerant.” That means they can also adopt or buy children to create a family; even though adult children of gay couples filed a brief in the 5th circuit court against legalizing gay marriage. It outlines the problems children have being in an atmosphere when both parents are of the same sex. I can attest to this because as a divorced parent I can see some of those problems in my own adult children who basically grew up without a father.

Somewhere over the rainbow the fat lady is rehearsing for her appearance on stage. If we’re very still, we can hear her above the belligerent catcalls of racism and hate leveled at anyone who dares to expose the Left, their detestable tactics, and their endgame of our destruction. In order to keep our sanity, we continue with our lives and discount bad Supreme Court decisions as just  because they don’t affect us personally. Au contraire; the recent SCOTUS decision about gay marriage is the final nail in the coffin of the USA. Just like accepting illegal immigrants, the normalization of gay marriage will unravel the Judeo Christian philosophy of this country and we will pay the price. It’s time to remember the words of our Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.:

Chanukah: Festival of Miracles

Everyone knows the story of Chanukah. The children’s version is that the Greek Syrians, led by Antiochus, wouldn’t allow Jews to pray in their Temple and were ordered to bow down to idols. Then the army destroyed the Holy of Holies, but the Maccabees fought back and after winning the battle, oil was found that lasted eight days and the Everlasting Light was once again lit. It was a double miracle. Light the candles, spin the dreidle, and eat some latkes and sufganiyot.(jelly doughnuts.)

The actual story is a little more complex. Just like today, there were many Jews who adopted the popular culture. At that time Alexander was busy conquering the world and his Hellenic culture spread to every corner of the Mediterranean. Unlike Jews, The Greeks were a polytheistic society who worshipped idols and admired male beauty and homoerotic culture. Many Jew-ish men even went through the painful operation of reattaching their circumcised foreskin so they could pass and be part of the “elite.” Many of these assimilated Jews ignored the precepts of their religion and even fought against their own people. Apparently having power was more important than their own heritage. We are seeing this once again by many Jews in our own country

There are many Jews in NGOS like the Israel Fund, a faux pro-.Israel organization, that is actually working with and for “Palestinians.” As if this wasn’t enough, many of the major Jewish organizations, like ADL and Hillel aren’t aren’t working for the benefit of Jews anymore. Then we have people like George Soros, who claims he was born into a Jewish aChanukah Mash uphttp://http://

family, Lois Lerner the IRS doyenne who not only went after conservative  organizations, but singled out pro- Israel organizations like Z Street that were in disagreement with this administration’s peace plan.  Democrats like Gruber and Wasserman- Schultz are first class liars with no shame. And how about that Martin  A-dyck Indyck who has made it his personal jihad to crush the Netanyahu government. Although this is an abbreviated list, it would not be complete without mentioning all the Jews who continue to vote for Democrats, even after it is obvious the party is working against the best interest of Israel and even went so far as to deny  G-d three times at the Democrat Naional Convention.

The Greeks promised the Hellenist  Jews power and a rung up the social climbing ladder. How is this any different today? The Grubers and Indyks of the world make millions and are welcomed at all the  Progessive workshops and seminars like heroes. The Hellenists  were traitors to their religion and country. Progressive Jews are no better. Maybe this Chanukah  G-d will provide another miracle. Or maybe the Jewish collaborators will finally realize that in the end all the dastardly plans will come to naught..The Hellenistic Jews disappeared, but traditional Jews are still here and praying. As for myself, I pray that the Progressive Jews not only light candles, but that they  actually see the light.

True Freedom

According to Yehuda Avner’s essential book The Prime Ministers Menecham Begin unapologetic informed Lord Carrington, one of the anti-Semites in the Thatcher government, that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel thousands of years before London was created. He then stood his ground against the suicidal demands of those “enlightened” masters of Israel, knowing that the Jews always stand alone. Prime Minister Begin did what he thought was right for his country and for his extended family of Jews no matter the strength of the enemy,the sentiments of popular journalists, or the lies perpetuated by political foes. So how is this story connected to Chanukah and the United States?

If Not Now

“The wrongs which we seek to condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant, and so devastating that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored because it cannot survive their being repeated.”

Many non-Jews and sadly, even Jews, believe that the Chanukah miracle is all about oil that lasted eight days. This is the children’s version. Actually, the miracle is more magnificent and decidedly more difficult. It’s about a small group of Jews who stood for their covenant with God against the strongest army in the world. Of course, they also had to fight against their fellow Jews who stood with the enemy. Sound familiar?

We are reaching, or have reached, a point of no return because of the wholesale corruption of our government and society. We have a government that has covered up the massacre at Benghazi which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Greg Doherty, Tyrone Woods, and Sean Smith. Before that, we listened to the same chorus lie about the murders of border agent Brian Terry and between 200-300 Mexican citizens on our southern borders. We have a government that pressures Israel to measure their defensive blows, but makes excuses for the destructive wickedness and cold blooded murders of babies and children of their new BFF the Muslim Brotherhood.

If we continue on this path of moral ambiguity we are on a path that we have already tried and it is a very ugly one. Since people aren’t taught history anymore they probably don’t know that many Nazis escaped to the Middle East. Even those that do know something of WWII forget that Rommel was stationed in North Africa. After the surrender, Odessa, an underground network, helped many of the Nazi officers escape to Egypt and Syria to name only two.

“Jeffrey Herf, a professor of history at the University of Maryland, has written an eye-opening book about the effectiveness of Nazi ideas in the Middle East during the Second World War called, “Nazi Propaganda For The Arab World.” In it, he describes the Nazi campaign for the minds and hearts of the Arab world in great detail—particularly the Axis radio programs that ran in Arabic around the clock from late 1939 until March of 1945.

These broadcasts spewed venomous anti-Semitism and pushed every demagogic button imaginable. They were also highly effective. In fact, long after the last vestige of Nazi rhetoric faded from consciousness in Europe, the poisonous seeds planted back then are still bearing deadly fruit.” HT http://playwrighter.blogspot.com/2011/05/hitler-and-arabs-nazis-in-middle-east.html

Americans have to remember that the Nazis not only killed Jews, but anyone who stood for their own religion or beliefs of conscience. And, just because we’re such a forgetful and under educated society lets remember that Nazi is the acronym for National SOCIALISTS. The plan was a one world government without Jews. The war never ended.
