I gadda say with all the covid, lockdown, rioting and impeachment, it still boggles my mind that we have a national candidate running for office that literally can’t take questions because hes too brain addled. I mean seriously how is this real life and not fiction?September 2, 2020 4:25 pm at 4:25 pm #1898036ubiquitinParticipant

Hashem runs the entire world and has already decided whi will win the 2020 election for President of the United States.
I.e.these presidents, politicians, mayors and senators are just actors and messengers of Hashem to cover up and make it look like they are running their community but we all know the truth. And any politician can be removed from his position at any time by Hashem if he doesn’t appreciate and use his executive authority position with honesty.
We Boruch Hashem have many Jewish politicians and leaders too on all different levels throughout the country (of course were not talking about our Rabbonim but in the american government on all different levels there are frum yidden serving the country and their community. This is only guaranteed to continue as long as he remains honest)September 3, 2020 8:11 am at 8:11 am #1898169

One needs to distinguish between a politician who supports the Supreme Court decision granting a secular legal right to same-gender marriage and a politician who is the personification of “Toevah” in terms of his adultery, misogyny, vulgarity and pervasive lying. And that is only the stuff we know about.September 3, 2020 10:56 am at 10:56 am #1898279Resident MortalParticipant
You can live with toevah only because you have been spiritually corrupted from things that are an abomination becoming the norm. Trying imagining People marrying animals and what that entails and know that the Torah puts them on an equal level of disgust-fullness.September 3, 2020 10:56 am at 10:56 am #1898278
GH – do you ever think about anything other than trump? Seriously, i feel like it’s on your mind 24/7 and i don’t know how that can be healthy. Remember when you used to talk about other things? I miss those days. In all sincerity, i miss normal posts from you and charliehall. I find both of your postings so stressful that i have to just walk away sometimes. Can we talk about something else ?September 3, 2020 4:44 pm at 4:44 pm #1898388Reb EliezerParticipant

1: “GH – do you ever think about anything other than trump?”
Thinking about Trump helps me get my mind off the shidduch crisis, nightmares that the kids will break the Pitom off our $400 Calabrian esrog and revelations that Milhouse is really Uncle Moishe posting under a pseudonym.September 14, 2020 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #1901566
Without bringing up ANY of the politics around it, , no potential defenses, nothing about the investigation. Just this please, can any of our resident dems please JUST tell me – don’t you find it suspicious/dishonest/problematic that 29 members of muellers team wipe their phones and the media and oublic give them a pass?
I am asking sincerely, no trumpkopf etc responses, just asking you about your feelings. Cuz i don’t understand that piece of this puzzle and i sincerely would like to.September 14, 2020 10:12 pm at 10:12 pm #1901621
I am not a Democrat. Maybe that is why I do not see anti Trump or a get rid of Trump for the greater good campaign. To me, this is all truck Washington stuff.
The scope of what Mueller investigated is way beyond the depth of your everyday journalist. The media could only report what Mueller wanted them to report. Other than a few minor leaks from Congress. Only the most seasoned reporters can keep up with the investigation and get a real scoop out of it. More than once, someone looked stupid reporting some breakthrough that dissipated within a few hours.
Robert Mueller is the most respected investigator in Washington. Both sides of the aisle, and all kinds of policymakers agree that he only cases about uncovering facts, and is impartial to the implications. Every administration relies on his work. The only parallel is Kissinger in foreign policy.
Mueller said from the very beginning that his investigation would only focus on Russia. Meaning, even if Trump would explicitly tell the investigation that he cut a deal with Putin to get elected, it would be handed over to the Justice Department and Mueller would continue to pursue what else and who else Russia was interfering with.
This was not widely disseminated, and led to great hand wringing among Trump and his supporters. But ultimately led to major disappointment of his opponents. It was all about Russia interfering in our elections. Something that they have done in dozens of countries.
So why did they wipe their electronics? Well, when that FBI agent lost his career over an unprofessional slip, most of the city wiped their electronics. And they swore to do it again every four or eight years. That probably was the most defining moment of The Trump Presidency.September 14, 2020 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm #1901626
Syag: Its really tough to be “serious” in re ANY aspect of this whole sordid affair but I’ll try. The answer to your totally fair question is that their actions were driven by he track record of this administration and especially DOJ in terms of unprecedented violations of established investigative norms and a President who uses DOJ as his personal law firm to further his own political agenda to a degree never seen. In that context, and especially after BARR had misrepresented the final report in his so called “summary” WHY would any independent counsel or member of his team want to leave an electronic treasure trove of information to be used in furtherance of Barr’s effort to discredit and undermine the report. Their concerns have been validated by Barr’s ongoing use of the Dunham investigation to further Trump’s vendetta against the special counsel team. Just the other day, a senior career lawyer working for Dunham resigned to protest the blatant politicization of Dunham’s investigation.
P.S. As a practical matter, and as Hillary Clinton discovered, “bleaching” (aka deleting” devices doesn’t delete copies of messages stored om external servers over which those messages were stored/distributed.

Thanks guys for trying to defend the mueller team. My question tho (cuz i really don’t care about the story itself) is how you feel about a story of this caliber being ignored by the media. I don’t want to hear any if the story or details or anything about trump or the mueller report. I am only asking this – this is a major story. The media is ignoring it. Yes or no, don’t you find that problematic?September 14, 2020 10:24 pm at 10:24 pm #19016352scentsParticipant
“I am not a Democrat“
You might or might not be a registered democrat. Yet, your posts in general are supportive of the democratic party and its leaders.September 14, 2020 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #1901638
And shana tova to you and yours as well!September 15, 2020 12:00 am at 12:00 am #1901656
I mentioned that the media is not able to keep up on the topic. They can only report what they are fed.
And truth be told, nobody cares anymore. (Russian meddling is old news that happens to be going on right now.)September 15, 2020 12:00 am at 12:00 am #1901657
What can I do for you?September 15, 2020 12:08 am at 12:08 am #1901667
So basically your personal answer is no, it does not bother you that the media completely ignores a major event of that calibre, and additionally you would like to present it as everyone elses answer as well as your own. Ok, at least its an answer.September 15, 2020 8:14 am at 8:14 am #1901681
Whether it bother me or not, was neither the question or the answer. I was just offering some pieces for your puzzle.

Craziest thing so far in 2020:

I know some of them thought they’d for sure get in, but you don’t take Kids anywhere during a Pandemic, unless it’s absolutely Necessary.September 15, 2020 3:02 pm at 3:02 pm #1901880
Then your is answer is absolutely not. Who cares about the media’s take? If I want to know something, I’ll look into it.
