Stahl vs. the President, and the Woke Campus

I paid no special attention to the 20/20 interviews with either President Trump vs. Leslie Stahl or former VP Biden taking softballs from Norah O’Donnell, until someone commented on Twitter with a 2-minute clip. What I soon learned is that the left can only agree that Orange Man Bad, but not why. It’s fascinating.

Also, a Princeton alum offered a series of events proving the decline of racism in America as proof of racism. He may claim to be “Seeking a New Anti-Racist Normal in Theater,” but if he keeps up his current practices and ideology, he will only make matters worse.

Keep Out the Charedim: ARZA and Mercaz USA reveal their true tolerance

ARZA and Mercaz USA were unable to motivate even 2% of their claimed memberships to vote in the World Zionist Congress elections. So they did the next best thing: try to upend the results and disenfranchise the new Charedi slate, in order to retain power.

All of what I say here is documented for those who wish to verify.


There is No Jewish Vote—There are Two, Diametrically Opposed

Yes, there is a Jewish vote: an I24News poll determined that 63.3 percent of Israelis would prefer to see President Donald Trump reelected, as opposed to 18.8 percent for Joe Biden. The majority believe that electing Biden would be harmful to the relationship between the U.S. and Israel.

But even this difference pales in comparison to the new poll from Ami Magazine, which determined that 83 percent of the Orthodox, and fully 95 percent of the Charedi, traditional Orthodox, support the reelection of the president. Among Charedi respondents, only 2 percent said they plan to vote for Joe Biden.

A Dishonest Caricature of Pro-Life

The way the left has tried to go after Amy Coney Barrett, an extremely well-qualified woman to serve as a justice on the Supreme Court, defies all standards of the Senate’s role of advice and consent. It even defies the “no religious tests” clause of the Constitution itself.

Neither ObamaCare nor abortion will define a fraction of Barrett’s time on the court, which could span nearly 40 years should her lifespan be that of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Yet the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee seem to care only about these issues. And when it comes to abortion, this is simply pushing judges to determine policy, rather than decide what the lawmakers intended — which is their role.

An article in USA Today even provides a completely dishonest caricature of the pro-life movement — while claiming it is the pro-life movement that offers “caricatures” of those needing abortions. Approached honestly, the pro-life movement’s descriptions are not “caricatures” at all, but those pregnancies that most Americans agree should not end in the taking of an innocent life.

Criticism of Amy Coney Barrett’s Catholic Beliefs is Antisemitism

I realize this sounds crazy — perhaps that’s why the title caught you. But it’s actually true: because the beliefs for which she is being condemned come from Judaism, and Antisemitism is rooted in hatred for Jewish moral beliefs, the condemnation of Barrett is a form of Antisemitism.

It is also anti-science, and projects the secular mixture of moral beliefs into secular jurisprudence onto Barrett. If you’re confused, you’ll have to listen to my explanation!

I refer to an article I wrote a few months ago that appeared in Newsweek: Judaism Is Emphatically ‘Pro-Life’.

Yeah, it’s “Your Country.” Deal with It.

“Your Country?” Of course it is.

It’s why Israel Bonds has raised tens of billions of dollars from American Jews.

It’s why Israel is the refuge for persecuted Jews.

It’s why the same liberal groups that refused to be on the call, and now condemn the President, interfere in Israel on both religion and security.

And it’s why both the UAE and Kosovo made gestures towards the global Jewish community in conjunction with their new agreements with Israel.

Law Enforcement in America: Defunding Civilization

Wm Barr on Law Enforcement

The key problem with the demonization of law enforcement, apologetics for violent riots and even taking a knee, is that one searches the globe in vain for a national government doing a substantially better job. And when one encounters a government dealing with racial diversity—and even animosity—yet striving similarly for safety and equality, such as Israel, we find that the same people calling to defund public safety in America would also defund defense from murderous terrorism abroad. So is their goal to disrupt a hopelessly broken system, or to destroy the best that civilization presently has to offer?

Judaism is Emphatically “Pro-Life”

The Jewish Bible’s position on life is unambiguous—and unambiguously “pro-life.” It is the source for the value placed on human life in civilized Western society. The Torah identifies human life as a soul placed (breathed) within a body by G-d Himself.
