President Trump

rtr_melania_trump_donald_jc_160224_16x9_992

The political universe in America has been turned inside out, upside down.

Yesterday morning, I spoke with my beloved stepmother, a senior citizen in Florida who voted for Trump.

“But I keep my mouth shut because I don’t want to argue with people,” she said. “They’re all for that woman.”

I wondered how many citizens were shy Trump supporters.

The answer: Millions.

For the longest time we’ve been hearing about Obama’s legacy.

Well, the American people were so disgusted by the Obama legacy—ObamaCare, the capitulation to Iran, the pen and the phone, and the deplorable mainstream media—that we elected a political novice to be the next president of the United States.

In short, Obama’s legacy is President Donald Trump.

Republicans are also in control of the Senate and the House. This too is a direct result of Obama’s grim eight years of executive overreach.

And perhaps most important, the Supreme Court is saved from a leftward lurch which would have thrust America into an abyss of authoriatarianism.

In addition, Trump gets to make 99 judicial appointees. The courts will be rescued from Democrat-Socialism.

And Trump will rebuild our military.

On a side note, and this is deeply meaningful to Torah Jews (and we hope to our Christian friends) it should be noted that President Trump’s daughter Ivanka is a Ger Tzedek, a righteous convert to Judaism, who observes the Sabbath and eats a kosher diet. Her husband, Jared Kushner, has deep ties to the Orthodox Jewish community. Further, the Trump organization employs several Torah Jews in upper management. Karen and I had a meeting with one of these men just  a few months ago. Thus we can expect a White House that will be—in contrast to Obama’s relentless Jew/Israel hatred—exceptionally friendly to Israel, to the worldwide Jewish community, and to those of faith in general.

Friends in Israel are ecstatic.

May God bless Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and the United States of America.

Comment Rules


Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    Ayn Rand got it right, and virtually every word in Atlas Shrugged, certainly every observation, has been in play for years.

    I didn’t stay up to watch the returns, and figured when I got up the next morning it would be to Yet Another Clinton Presidency. I was pleasantly surprised to find Trump had won. I can’t say I was for Trump; I was mostly against Hillary.

    Most of Academia is beside itself. Some of us, like your stepmother, were quietly non-Hillary voters, because it can be dangerous to one’s continued employment to admit that–even with tenure.

    I saw Netanyahu’s message and he was all but grinning ear to ear throughout. Bless him, bless Israel, and bless our new President-elect, his family, and his administration. Most of all, G-d bless America.

      I am as shocked at this mindless behavior as Claude rains was to find ‘gambling.’

        Again I must take issue, Barry, this time with your use of “mindless.” This is not mindless, it is purposefully directed hatred.

      This is why the right to bear arms is critical. See also Robert’s amazing “Jew without a gun”.

        This took place in Chicago. No guns allowed.

          If I were still living in Chicago (Where I grew up) I would carry a can of bear spray for such incidents.

            He would not have had the chance to use it. There’s a very affecting video on the Chicago Tribune website with this poor guy explaining what happened. There was a fender bender in this bad neighborhood, he got out to exchange insurance information, and they beat the crap out of him, b/c he’s a white guy who probably voted for Trump. This is a decent guy, heavy Chicago accent, and he’s wondering when the US became a place where a person gets beaten up for his choice of candidate. He’s also wondering how he and his wife are going to manage in the not-great neighborhood they live in without the car that was stolen. Someone should start a go-fund-me for him.

          Yes, Chicago where only criminals are allowed to have guns. That was precisely my point.

    There is a lot of celebration going on in Britain among BREXIT voters. Farage will gain considerble clout from his relationship with Trump.

      Laus Deo = Baruch HaShem

      Indeed, a huge relief.

      God bless all our Christian friends.

        I count myself as agnostic rather than Christian (though my parents were somewhat observant Protestants). But I too very much appreciated your earlier note about Ivanka, and your comment then and again here that this and the character of his children speaks to his character.
        Thanks you for that translation of “Baruch HaShem”. Your writing has allowed me to slowly understand more of Judaism, which is something I value.

    The only candidate willing to speak the truth about Muslim terrorism and the dangers of Muslim immigration. That won me over. And the promise to repeal Obamacare didn’t hurt none either.

    A repudiation of New York Times style ‘journalism’. CNN was guilty too, but as the election unfolded, Wolf, Jake and the others seemed to catch on and conduct themselves well.

      I can’t agree on CNN. Awful, awful people.
      And their refusal to do a real investigation of the Donna Brazile leaks and root out the rot in their operation. Shameful.

        I only meant in its election night coverage. By midnight the tone had changed.

          Adjusting to the new reality, I guess.
          But really, I think their problem is institutional.
