Who can beat Mike Pence?

A big mistake is made by politicians on the Left in the US who prepare for 2020 by asking out-loud: “Who can beat “Donald Trump?

Trump is so 2019. He will not be re-electable. In jail, on his way to jail, found out by most of the electorate as a plain liar, escaped to a Trump-friendly country, all of the above….

Much harder to outdo at will be his Vice, so the right question is: Who can beat Mike Pence?

Pence will peddle soft-Trumpism. All the reactionary capitalist stuff, but in a soothing tone, with some compromises here and there, the new reasonableness all over.

  • A stop to most international trade wars
  • Resumption of some environmental protection
  • Continued attention to the Forgotten Man of America
  • Out-loud praise for Trump
  • Continued priority for defense
  • Improved healthcare (not Obama or Trump Care but Who Cares)
  • No more shooting from the hip (twitter, ad-lib press conferences)
  • No new legislation against GLBTQ but a proud voice against them

As I said: the new reasonableness. Who could surpass that?

Clinton is too arrogant. Feel the burn-out Sanders is too angry and aloof. Sorry to say, the USA may be just too sexist to elect Warren. And the rest don’t stand a chance either.

Oprah is wildly popular — among her fans. What would help would be someone who’s attractive on the other side of the aisle.

It’s gonna be Pence. And that is only good for Israel — believe me.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch Holocaust survivors 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 He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will.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), Oppression and Liberation (of 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 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.
