Trump on Iran and on Christians

Two Trump developments.

Fake news after all!

I don’t like Donald Trump’s war against critical press, which he calls the fake news media. I don’t say that his attacks are poor strategy, but look who’s talking. There’s no one more bogus than the 45th President.

Having said that, truthfully, news outlets often have their own biases and frequently deliberate ones at that. Just, it’s kind of funny when Mister Made-It-Up Himself demands honest treatment.

I’m with the truth, wherever it’s found, so I must say that much of reporting on Trump’s remarks on the Iran nuclear deal has been way off the mark. I read over and over again: “Trump Decertifies Iran Deal, Promises Tougher Approach” – which he didn’t. He only said: I will if

However, in the event we are not able to reach a solution working with Congress and our allies, then the agreement will be terminated. It is under continuous review, and our participation can be cancelled by me, as President, at any time.

Talking about dishonest coverage: the President was extremely presidential throughout, and no serious reporter came out to say so.

Making America Abate Again.

Trump is winning the next elections too

Left-wingers are not just sour faced about Trump’s power because they would be bad sports. They know what’s at stake. For them political control is not a game. It’s about survival of the weakest of society, of climate and planet. Of justice and truth. For them it’s not all a “virtual reality show” – read: bogus imagery. I have bad news for them. Trump is on his way to win the next elections again. There are several reasons.

1. As I mentioned before (here and here), Bernie and Hillary are just too snobby, arrogant, removed from blue-color workers to reach them.

2. He’s well taking care of his voters. While after winning cheating the electorate used to be normal, Trump will not.

And now he calmly added a new feature:

3. Expanding his base. He must have thought: if I can take in Orthodox Jews, hoodwinking Fundamental Christians should be a piece of cake.

And he’s probably right.

There is a persistent misunderstanding that rich people are most fond of spending money. They are actually more happy to keep it. And Trump’s election work is a case in point.

To get elected, he hardly spent any money on advertising. He just upset activists and reporters every day and they gave him a constant stream of free publicity.

4. Also now he has a free ride. If he gets it his way, he will be campaigning all over the US on tax payers’ moneys for four years.

When he calls others losers, believe him.

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.
