Nastiest US Presidential Elections Ever!

Last night on BBC they broadcast Obama campaigning for his former opponent Hillary Clinton. The racist scare tactics and dangerously inciting negative comments about Donald Trump would get someone jailed if it had been against a non-white candidate.

But since the Left is firmly coated in Teflon, even linguistically, he can get away with it.
TEFLON = ON LEFT
This is a nasty campaign. The so-called "debates" were more like street fights using verbal knives and sharpened sticks.

As poorly as our Israeli politicians sometimes act, I think that the Americans have been dragging politics to an even lower level.

More than that, this entire election season, from the runup to the primaries and now as the candidates slug it out to the final voting deadline, the entire world can see how disunited the United State really is.

  • There is no "American People."
  • The "melting pot" has failed to make a tasty "cholent."
  • Even though the rates of all sorts of racial and religious intermarriage has never been higher, the disparate groups of people living in the United States of America are just getting more and more suspicious and hateful of those they consider "different." 
If Hillary wins, I just can't see her undoing the social damage of the campaign, especially after her repeated "deplorable" comments stereotyping and condemning Trump supporters. 

And if Trump wins, so many Americans can't stand him and don't trust him. I can't see him calming the waters either.

Neither of the candidates have displayed the talents, personality and character that the USA needs in their president right  now. And Obama's anti-Trump campaigning has been so vicious that there's no way he can undo the damage. 

The lines separating the disparate groups of American society may have been redrawn, but they seem deeper than ever. And trust between them is at an alltime low. 

Neither Trump nor Hillary has shown his/herself as "presidential," or does the word and concept "presidential" have new meaning in the twenty-first 21st century?

Good luck America and Jews come home!

Its not even about Trump. Its a vote against globalism basically.

The world is falling apart.

Interesting points.
The term "presidential" is nothing less than a media invention in order to delegitimize a person. It is associated with being "diplomatic". What has diplomatics brought us. Look back to the time when Reagan spoke about "the bombing starts in five minutes". There was a firestorm in the media to no end. He was also fiercely condemned when he walked out of the talks with Gorbachev in Reykjavik. Yet all the hype Against Reagan did not bring about Armageddon as was predicted.

Too many in the frum community are basing their assumptions in the same manner as Xtian analytics. There is a presupposition of certain outcomes and thus everything is tied to those assumptions. I have noticed in my own personal experiences that assumptions on the surface are rarely the entirety of the matter. I will see one event happen and, by nature, I will begin looking deeper. It is in this analysis I find many things were to a benefit that wasn't originally contemplated. Many times it has to do with things seemingly unrelated. The relationship is found at times by other external sources.

So it is with current events. We need to remove ourselves from a one-track mind and expand to things that seem unrelated. In my opinion there will be outcomes that many will find astonishing. I can see where events will unfold that will cause many to question their own status. When a person uses Tanach in order to "prove" a certain presupposed outcome they are ignoring the totality of information. I have yet to see some of the blogs take into account matters that are related but not in the manner originally considered. All in all there will be significant surprises for many in the community in the years ahead.

Sharbano, thanks. One thing for sure, it's not dull...
Gd willing it will work out better than everyone is predicting...

The day after, yes Batya the world is falling apart. With the prospects of WW3, the world economic collapse no matter who is elected is the concern. With all our writings pointing to the messianic era before 2018, lets hope for that outcome.

Interesting that you write no one trusts Trump. Obviously you are not following the news or unfolding, should I say, revelation of events. No one trusts hillery, never have. Trump has never had a trust issue. He has other issues. hillery's support is based on other things. And all the fearmongering is a desperate attempt to distract the people from the story of what traitorous and criminal actions she has committed while secretary of state and now candidate. It will all come out in the wash. Big question is will it come out before or after the elections, will she lose or will she win and then be indicted. Will the country be thrown into a constitutional crisis that could last the entire first year following the elections. The last days and the days following Tuesday are going to be tumultuous, regardless of the outcome of the elections because the allegations now are much bigger than a presidential race, which anyway is completely rigged. However, truth is the american voting system is the worse system in the world. The machinery and process has been subject to fraud for decades, as has been pointed out my numerous, unbiased and disinterested third party boards that examine voting processes and technologies. I myself know of many dead people who voted early and often.

Yes. She is the crooked one.

Hope the link works, but Assange states that Trump will not be allowed to win. The globalists want to defeat any resistance to them. Two nations stand in the way of the globalist agenda of total control over us, Israel and Russia. What a world

Too harsh!

dangerous and pathetic
All true Jews should make aliyah and make the State of Israel a Great Jewish Country!

Shiloh said...

Batya, who is a true Jew? Are they from which period of history as Judaism has been through many changes throughout history? Shall we just go back to Ruth? I agree, we need to make this a great Jewish country, but who's rules? Who's Judaism is correct? Is this something the messiah will decide and then have to fight those within the club? I would say the later is the truth. Shavua Tov!

Shilo, why do you think you know everything, when you don't even believe in the Oral Laws of the Torah? Whatever our great Sages of yesteryear interpreted for us from the Torah is correct. You do not come to the soles of their shoes, as most of us also are and never we in their league. Halacha is the guide to 'who is a Jew', nothing more, nothing less.

Batya Medad said...

Shiloh, you do not speak like a true Jew of today.
6/11/16 02:19, amen

Shiloh said...

Ah, Batya, a "true" Jew is one who obeys the ta'akanot! I knew your answer already. You know Batya and all your other brainwashed sheep, the coming messiah will not support the direction that rabbinical Judaism has gone and the rabbi's know it. Moses would be appalled by the direction it has gone which is in fact both against what he taught and most certain against the prophets of the Tanach. Rabbi's know this but simple Jews cannot know it. Sad the arrogance you and Annon have. Like I said, watch who fights the coming messiah who will clean this mess up, and dont be surprised of what he ends up telling you specifically.

Batya Medad said...

You are not an expert in Judaism. You represent a very tiny group if anyone at all besides yourself.

Shiloh said...

You don't know who I am or what I am aware of, thankyou very much. The Torah is very clear not to follow the majority to evil. Are the Karaites not "true" Jews Batya? Are real Kohanim who actually have documented lineage back to the time of the Roman period who are also Karaites not true Jews Batya? Again, all you do is attack my character without knowing Batya, that is against your halachot actually, so that would then put in question your "true Jew" mantra. Let's just stop this nonsense because the coming messiah, I promise you that you will have a huge problem with him, thus you in fact will fight against God as it will be God who will anoint the person. I can't blame you for not knowing something that will come, that has happened in our recent history, but I can blame you for your hatred towards me and others who know rabbinical Judaism is off the derech. Even the Rambam stated the messiah will repair the breaches of the Torah. Just because one may not understand those breaches and follow those who have caused those breaches, does not give you or any other Jew the right to so arrogantly tell those what they are and what they know or don't know in your opinion. I remember one rabbi from the Mir Yeshiva, he was right under the rosh yeshiva actually. He got into it with me, accusing me of many things just like you are doing. He called me many names that I would never use. He went and spoke to the rosh yeshiva that night, when returning back to the job the next day, he was up all night praying, his eyes were red as a tomato. He begged me to forgive him. He actually left Israel now. Because I am controversial Batya, gave him no reason to act like he did which you would call him a "true Jew" but he behaved worse than the goyim as do many in our country. And I am not speaking about religious observance either though he ignored his own halachot like most hypocrites do in the end. Just keep an open mind, you don't have to agree but there is no reason for you to speak like this, especially since you have no clue what I have already done, no clue. Be well, and lets hope Obama backs us into a corner, it will do two things, force us to get along and force the messiah out because he does not want to help us at all, why? That answer is very clear, we don't deserve it.

Batya Medad said...

We don't agree much on religion, but agree more on politics, right?
