What damage will Trump’s soon downfall do?

We’re not talking about Trump being replaced by Hillary. The substitute is the only one in the White House that Trump cannot fire, the Vice-Precedent. In fact, it could have been that he has helped Trump’s downfall by ill or absent advice. He’s the Republican Party’s trump card up its sleeve (pun not intended) and it will be played.

What will happen when Mike Pence takes over? What will he do trying to save the 2020 elections? (The 2018 elections are lost irredeemably.)

  • Populism will be replaced with conservative values and middle–class “decency.” Money and a free hand for the super-rich. The stock market will rebound.
  • The quiet further impoverishment of the poor will continue.
  • No more slogan politics. Populists will be all out.
  • Diplomacy will take the place of nationalistic war mongering and there will be no deal in the Middle East.
  • Lip-service to anti-racism will take the place of racism, but besides token measures (DAKA), deportations will pick up.
  • The poor sick, environment and transgenders will be in the cold for two more years.
  • Jews will be less in the spotlight, what is good because then (rightly so) they won’t be blamed for the Trump mess.
  • Finally all government vacancies will be filled. End of chaos.

Yet, Republicans will be unable to hold Congress and Bernie Sanders will take over with the largest margin in history.

  • Sanders will create free schooling and university education, universal healthcare, climate control, etc. The USA is a century late in receiving some measure of socialism.
  • The main ones being thrown under the bus will be the Zionists. He will be more hostile to Israel than any president before. Israel has two years to get out of US support what it can, because after that the meager years will be there. Congress will stop too much anti-Zionist assault and too much Palestinians cuddling, but Israel will be stuck until a Jew-loving president will take the reins again.
  • Don’t blame Zionists for being close to Trump. It’s not that we had anyone else, did we?
About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch Holocaust 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. * 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 and Rav Zev Leff. * 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, 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. Many people can't understand or like him because he has such a wide vision that he never fits any specialist's box. But that exactly what others 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. * He likes doing age-appropriate and age-inappropriate things and looks forward to getting to know his timeless mature out-of-the-box soul mate. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
