Making America conned again – in 2020?

Let us first determine who is America. America is not its billionaires. It’s also not the Middle Class, falsely assuming that they are the fortunate ones. America is Us, the People.

After being robbed and fooled for generations by professional politicians, they’re now conned and impoverished by a non-politician, a professional businessman.

The difference is: when they were milked by Wall Street and Capitol Hill, they felt cheated. But now it’s old wine in new bottles, and they feel protected and honored. Sad!

Where to go from here? That depends.

Donald Trump. He’s a liability, a loose cannon for conservatives. Better stop him before it’s too late. As an independent, he’ll never make it.

Mike Pence. He’s a real politician. He will be hated like all the others.

Hillary Clinton. She has nice ideas but she’s much too arrogant and corrupt.

Bernie Saunders. He has nice ideas for the US but is an anti-Zionist (yes, it’s a euphemism) and aloof as any self-respecting nouveau rich.

Nikki Haley. She’s not arrogant. She’s not anti-Zionist. She would make an excellent US president. And after being elected as the Republican candidate for 2020, she probably may say the same as the present Pope said at his election by the conservative Bishops: I pray that God will forgive you for your choice.

She will be the fresh wind that all of the US and frankly all of the Free World and oppressed people have been waiting for. She will be the bridge builder. She will unite people who were lied to and set up against each other. She will re-introduce truth and reasonableness into politics. And she will be nice to the nice and wicked to the wicked.

There is ground for optimism.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
