As Originally Written On Twitter & Modified For Blogger: A Simple Republican Response To the State Of The Union

Those of us who are Republicans do not tolerate or support RINO *****'s willful and deliberate attempts to destroy the GOP, the United States, and republican parties in other countries. We also do not tolerate or support *****'s attacks on the Democrats, from whom he is much further on the Left. We additionally do not tolerate or support a repeat of history in which Neo Nazis and Neo Stalinists can bring about the kind of lawlessness and disorder that ***** seeks to bring.

We therefore support Special Counselor Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, both of whom (by the way) are GOP members whom seek to bring about what GOP Abraham Lincoln discussed in his address at Gettysburg: "that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

By standing with other Republicans (including Special Counselor Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein), the Democrats whom are willing to work with the GOP, and other American people whom want "one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all" (as we pledge to want when we "pledge allegiance to the flag...and to the republic for which it stands"), we can be "a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." 

The United States can have a revival that does not include *****'s idea of what to "make American great again" is. 

As Martin Luther King, Jr. stated, "[W]hen we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!""

That is all. Goodnight and God bless the United States of America.

"How To Get Away With Sexual [Battery]": Sponsor Bill Cosby's Tour & Set A Bad Example

If nothing else stops you from giving a venue to Bill Cosby's "How To Get Away With Sexual [Battery] Tour, think about young Black men in cities such as Birmingham (which was important in the Civil Rights movement), Chicago (where the American Giants Negro Leagues team was), Detroit (Motown), and Philadelphia (where the Constitution was written). What kind of example does violating the Civil Rights and other liberties and freedoms of women, and spitting in the face of men whom avoided couching any women as "whores" (let alone sexual-battery victims as such) set for young Black men?

"Accident[al]" "Kill" Lists, Etc.: The Trumpian Paradigm

Threatening to leave NATO, murder journalists and silence other journalists whom cover Russiagate, and otherwise destroy republicanism in the U.S.—as well as republicanism and democracy elsewhere—means one thing: the Trump Dictatorship has escalated its Bowling Green Massacre, as if bowling over our stomachs and making us biliously green by attempting to massacre freedom and liberty everywhere wasn't enough.

Also increasing, of course, is attempted and actual mental, emotional, and other non-physical murderousness of the cyberbullying and offline-bullying Trumpites continue to target professionals and even laypeople like me (though I'm an aspiring professional, might I add, and they're seeking to destroy me and others whom are aspiring professionals—especially if we're Jews). That murderous cyberbullying and offline bullying includes ramped-up racism, xenophobia, ableism, sexism, and Anti Semitism (a special kind of racism) and Muslimophobia (and as I've said before, notice that I didn't say "Islamophobia"—contrary to what Trumpites, including narcissistic Trump, and others say, most Muslims (at least in the Western and Westernized world) do not follow the Islam of Mohammed, an Arabian equivalent to White supremacist Trump—after all, Mohammed proselytized to especially Jews and Christians (including Jewish Christians) by sharing his faith unsolicitedly and even after other people asked him to stop sharing it with them, taxing them, or murdering them—and think about whom Trump targets and uses frequently.

The Trumpian Paradigm, then, is this (or at least this): a syncretic paradigm that borrows from the paradigms of Nazism, Sovietism, and Medinan-Meccan Islam—by the way, Mohammed had no patience with or tolerance those with whom he considered heretics and apostates, since freedom of conscience and religion were anathema to Mohammed.

"Stand With Israel, Not Netanyahu"

Even I, a staunch Zionist who was already mad enough at Netanyahu and his Haredi Judaism which he attempts to disguise as Yahadut Chilonit, took a few steps back and thought:

If Netanyahu was largely passive while Arab citizens were being assaulted, he led the demonization campaign against the 47,000 African refugees and asylum seekers who entered Israel without permits. Despite reducing the number of refugees entering Israel to practically zero, thanks to the Sinai fence, he continues to lock up thousands of these desperate people – who, like our own Jewish ancestors, sought to escape persecution and poverty. Netanyahu’s policies flout Jewish values, and have been overturned multiple times by the High Court as immoral and unjustified. But they play well to his xenophobic base. 

Good points and reminders. In fact, I wager that some of the Sudanese and other refugees may even be Falasha and Lemba Jews who are making aliyah in what many would call an illegal way—and if any "illegal" olim are among the Sudanese refugees, the Government of Israel has no right to deny those olim ("eleh Kushim!") their taglit. Also, think about this: what if some illegal immigrants from Mexico, Guatemala, etc. are Anusim who'd make aliyah if Netanyahu and his yadidim let them? After all, they're not considered Yehudim al pi HaHoq Shivut. They otherwise have to be under the auspices of nasty people such as Dr. Michael Freund. (Just like Netanyahu, Dr. Freund can fool people. That's even part of why I save most of my e-mails in my backup folders—that is, so I do not ever lose the proof of when I run into mitchazim like Dr. Freund. That's why I still have the link to the 2012 conversation.).

 Likud-led fear and hatemongering hardly stops with our non-Jewish minorities. Progressives, civil rights activists, leftists, the judiciary and anyone who criticizes the occupation have all been accused of being enemies of the state. So much for Jewish solidarity or democratic discourse. 
Indeed. I've experienced this myself. I even have a Facebook friend who called Senator Diane Feinstein (with whom I myelf hardly ever agree) a "witch" for standing against Netanyahu, and I've seen others harp on the fact that Senator Feinstein comes from a Jewish Catholic family (which I did not know until they harped on her for it. As I learned, the Feinsteins and the Rosenburgs were and are Russian Byzantine Catholics.).

From a family of Roman Catholic Anusim and b'nei Anusim, I know that feeling ("You're not Jewish!"; "Your family betrayed their people!"; "They're meshumadim!"; "They're bogadim!"; "Oh; no wonder your Hebrew's not good: your family didn't tell you that they're Jewish!")

Perhaps, by the way, maybe the Anusi and "meshumad" minds are among the ones which are quickest to pick up on trouble. Our ancestors knew when trouble was coming and/or already came, and at least two of us (Senator Feinstein and me, though I suspect that there are more who) knew that Netanyahu and the Haredim were trouble (By the way, I'll have some kavod for Taylor Swift if she goes to Israel and dedicates her famous song to Netanyahu.).

Anyway:

This week’s Netanyahu drumbeat claims that the Iranian threat trumps all traditional diplomatic considerations. But those who, like me, believe that Iran is an existential threat to Israel, and fear that the agreement currently being negotiated will be too forgiving and trusting of Iran need to acknowledge that Netanyahu has blown it. 
His anti-Obama tirades, his support for West Bank settlements over all other considerations, his efforts to undermine the Palestinian Authority, his expropriation of 988 acres of Palestinian land at the end of the Gaza War not only wasted the new diplomatic opportunities he promised toward the war’s end, but alienated and antagonized the very European leaders who, along with U.S. President Barack Obama, are the partners necessary to stop Iran’s nuclear program. 

Excellent reminder and point as well. For being such a Zionist, Netanyahu isn't taking the higher road. He also is not trusting יהוה. For example, bulldozing the houses of innocent Bedouins does not help—and deliberately failing to distinguish between the innocent and the guilty is a chillul יהוה.

Bulldozing the houses of terrorists and their accomplices is fine. Destroying terrorists and their accomplices is fine. Stereotyping all Arabs as terrorists and bulldozing their houses is not fine.

As for (and back to the point about) taking the higher road, to stoop down to the level of an enemy or even lower is a chillul יהוה (cf. Tehillim 25:21-22 and Mishlei 26:4). The applicable mitzvot, after all, say to love your neighbor as yourself (not be like him or her in doing evil), treat the stranger well (not do as he or she has done to you), and let יהוה avenge you. Netanyahu is doing the exact opposite when he has the IDF go beyond proactive counterproliferation, preemption, and deterrence.

By the way, counterproliferation, preemption, and deterrence are obviously mitzvot and acts of kiddush יהוה.

Netanyahu plays the statesman abroad, but back home he is known for his paranoia, his self-aggrandizement, and his lashing out against the courts, the universities and the media. Netanyahu aspires to be Israel’s Churchill, but in nurturing a nation divided against itself he has become our Nixon. 
I and others who follow news from and about 'Eretz Yisra'el keep trying to say that, though nobody believes us. Hopefully, Director Futterman (despite that he's looking at the situation from a leftist perspective) can affect you to get that through your head.
