U. S. Politics: Mostly Only for Entertainment Purposes

Daily Wire: Trump's Tweets Are A Gift To His Enemies

Last week was a particularly bad week for the Democrats. After Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) implied that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is racist by accusing her of "singling out" minority representatives, a very intense and public squabble (don't call it a catfight!) broke out between the different factions of the Democratic Party. Meanwhile, a group of protestors at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility tore down an American flag and replaced it with the Mexican flag. At a different ICE facility, an Antifa terrorist waged an attack with a gun and explosive devices. He was killed by police. Like I said, it's been a bad few days for the Democrats. All Trump had to do to win the week was step back and let them self-destruct. Instead, as is so often the case, Trump threw the Democrats a lifeline in the form of a stupid tweet. (cont.)

Now, as most of you know, I see American politics as existing mostly for entertainment purposes. Mostly. Now that U. S. President Trump has become more involved in the back and forth with these four Members of Congress, I expect that things may devolve from being entertaining into something more akin to being cringe-worthy.

Many of my American Jewish friends cringe at this statement, both the "Armchair Zionist" variety and even many of those Jews who actually made it here to Israel, but still celebrate the Fourth of July for some odd reason.

They still see the U. S. as the all important and power ally, in spite of the threats of U. S. troops on our soil, which they would probably welcome, impending forced land giveaways, which they are still in denial about, and increased Christian tourism, which they would also probably welcome, even encourage (Gotta grow the economy, right?!). The smart Christians, by the way, have long since set aside missionizing (for now), in favor of attempts to reside here permanently. Many of the these proud American Jews do not see an issue with. Yes, even the religious ones, mostly because they have been taught the incorrect definition of avodah zarah (foreign worship), and to throw around the names "HaMe'iri" and "Rabbenu Gershon," even though their rulings regarding avodah zarah have little if anything to do with whether they may, or may not, reside in the Land of Israel.

The "Armchair Zionists" are in far worse shape. To many of them, the U. S. is, and always will be, their home. Even though the U. S., and every other country outside of Israel, is only supposed to be a temporary dwelling place, until residing in Israel once again became attainable. I have been trying to get this message through Jewish politicians still residing in galut (exile), for some time now.

When I say "Armchair Zionists," that includes President Trump's religious (orthodox) Jewish son-in-law, who may, or may not, be involved in forcing Israel to give up parts of the territory it has conquered (albeit in a half-hearted way, it seems these days), lands which have been Divinely Promised to the Jewish People, lands which are not his, the President's, the Israel Prime Minister's, or any other human being's decision to give up.

In a nutshell, the so-called "right-wing" Jews have aligned themselves with Esau  (the West, both Christians and progressives), and the "progressive left" has aligned itself with Yishma'el (Arabs / Muslims).

Meanwhile, the Erev Rav (mixed multitude), one of whose roles is seen as attempting to join together  Esau (the West, both Christians and progressives) with Yishma'el , thus delaying ge'ulah (redemption), are laughing all the way to the bank,...and all the way to the polls.

Meanwhile, one of the only times when U. S. politics is not for entertainment purposes, is when they are trying to distract us from something. Then it is actually important to pay close attention!
