President Biden’s extreme charisma and charm along with is pro Jew policies remind me of President Ronald ReganMay 27, 2021 9:46 am at 9:46 am #1978007Sam KleinParticipant
First edit your topic to spell president Ronald Reagan correctly then we can talk more about the topicMay 27, 2021 9:47 am at 9:47 am #1978015CTLAWYERParticipant
There never was a President Regan
I detested him, but he deserves to have his name spelled correctly: REAGAN
His trickle down voodoo economics was the start of the destruction of the American middle class.May 27, 2021 11:30 am at 11:30 am #1978054
CTL, on the contrary, he saved the economy. FYI, JFK did the same thing. His Star Wars program pushed the former Soviet Union (of cursed memory) over the brink.May 27, 2021 11:30 am at 11:30 am #1978056
I would hardly call Biden pro-Jewish. He wants to go back to the disastrous Iran agreement. His whole leftist agenda (toeva and abortion “rights”, for example) is contrary to Jewish values. We can also expect him to appoint judges who will be antagonistic to freedom of speech and religion in these areas as well as anti-police. There is even the threat of packing the Supreme Court.May 27, 2021 11:34 am at 11:34 am #1978061
Another lame attempt of an uneducated bucher to troll
I’ll assume you aren’t referring to spelling mistakesMay 27, 2021 1:26 pm at 1:26 pm #1978117GadolhadorahParticipant
They named an airport after Reagan and an Amtrak station after Biden. That should tell you all you need to know.May 27, 2021 1:28 pm at 1:28 pm #1978069ujmParticipant
President Ronald Reagan was the greatest American president since President Teddy Roosevelt. No one has come close since.
Joe Biden is the new Jimmy Carter.May 27, 2021 2:49 pm at 2:49 pm #1978168torahvaluesoverpartyParticipant
Biden funded Palestinian terrorists. That’s not pro jews. He’s overall been pursuing much-not all- of the far lefts agenda. The only comparison to Reagan is that hes old and softspoken.May 27, 2021 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm #1978180MDGParticipant
I believe the OP is being sarcastic.May 27, 2021 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm #1978178CTLAWYERParticipant
Reagan did not save the economy. His 1981 tax cuts were followed by 8 years of tax increases wiping out the cuts. He gave the breaks to the rich and harmed the middle class.
I did not say he harmed the economy, I said his trickle down economics was the start of the destruction of the middle class. Please don’t put words in my mouth or shift the subject as if I had addressed what you shift to.
Reagan was a senile former Democrat, former Labor Union President, the first divorced person to be elected President…some Family Values platform and an actor, B grade at that.May 27, 2021 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm #1978209lakewhutParticipant
CTLawyer yet he won both elections by very wide margins he saves America from the disaster that was Carter.May 27, 2021 5:49 pm at 5:49 pm #1978190Reb EliezerParticipant
Reagon increased the deficit tremendously.May 27, 2021 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #1978216MDGParticipant
“Reagan was a senile former Democrat, ”
He left the Dem party long before. His values that he pushed in the 80s are the same he spoke about in to 60s.
“former Labor Union President,”
Well then, he knew evil from the inside.
“the first divorced person to be elected President…some Family Values platform”
While divorce is not optimal, it seems that he did the best he could. You voted for Clinton, and he didn’t get divorced, but he’s no 3xample of family values.
“and an actor, B grade at that.”
Totally superfluous.May 27, 2021 6:54 pm at 6:54 pm #1978206ShtarkButRelatableParticipant
@johnny I hear where you’re coming from but the way I see it biden is more of a Reagan/carter/ford sorta crossbreed hybrid situation if you know what I mean.
I could also hear reagan/carter/bush if youre feeling ever so inclined
It might sound odd but give it some thought before coming at me with some crass response.May 27, 2021 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #1978248
Reagan did not name an airport after himself, but Biden has a huge welcome center on I-95. Everyone who is smart enough to build something in his n ame without spending his own money, is surely special. Even Cuomo re-named the bridge for his father, not himself.
The irony of building a welcome center for fossil-driving public …May 27, 2021 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #1978260

Commenting on a topic written by a troll gives the troll exactly what they want. Don’t do it. Oh shoot I just did but did not press submit yet (as of this writing, what happens after is to be determined).May 27, 2021 11:03 pm at 11:03 pm #1978278lakewhutParticipant
I love how democrats wake up 40 years later to trash Reagan. He won new york and California. Shows he did a great job and that democrats were useless.May 28, 2021 8:14 am at 8:14 am #1978340
I think that 1980 was a much closer election than people remember.May 28, 2021 8:15 am at 8:15 am #1978341
CTL is spot on. Pick any pundit from right to left who gripes about America’s finances. Then track when that shift started and what caused it. You’ll see that almost all of them encourage from Reagan.May 28, 2021 8:15 am at 8:15 am #1978342
Reagan has a mixed record on Jews and Israel.May 28, 2021 8:15 am at 8:15 am #1978343
On social issues, Reagan was not very conservative for his day. Compared to what the cultural scene is now, Biden is about the same moderate that Reagan was empty years ago. We could look up that happened in the eighties and see if Senator Biden and President Reagan disagreed on social issues.May 28, 2021 8:25 am at 8:25 am #1978344
The biggest similarity to me, is that they both work quickly to move along their agenda. And they are very good at avoiding making enemies. If the Republicans stay focused on the past election, it will soon be much too late to stop Biden.May 28, 2021 8:34 am at 8:34 am #1978358ShtarkButRelatableParticipant
I feel the Democrats are the best for us Jews now. They are really is making the Jews feel equal in the world.
And @lakewhut: they didn’t do nothing. They have been pro Jews for the last century. I think we should all vote Democrat, to show appreciation.May 28, 2021 9:45 am at 9:45 am #1978392
To clarify, I was not making the case that Biden is most similar to Reagan. Perhaps Fillmore is the best fit. I made the Reagan/Biden comparison on a different thread.May 28, 2021 9:48 am at 9:48 am #1978393DBSParticipant
I can’t vote dem with their Israel politics.
And with the Biden administration telling Jews who are scared of anti-semitic attacks to ‘take off their Yarmulkes and stars of david’?! Can you say victim-blaming?
We have no debt of gratitude towards them.May 28, 2021 9:49 am at 9:49 am #1978387
Shtark, that is really funny. But don’t give up your day job. Look what is happening in the US on their watches. Look at how the anti-Israel crowd is gaining power. Not to mention that the whole progressive agenda is anathema to Torah.May 28, 2021 11:00 am at 11:00 am #1978439
“I think 1980 was a much closer election then people remember”
Reagan won the election by a landslide, taking 489 electoral votes and Carter getting 49. Reagan received the highest number of electoral votes ever won by a non-incumbent presidential candidate.
In fact Carter conceded at 10PM EST with the results being so obvious, looks like you were not born yet in 1980 otherwise you would have rememberedMay 28, 2021 11:00 am at 11:00 am #1978447
Ed Markey is still holding the line on Israel. This proves that the Democrats default position is still pro Israel. The upstarts in Congress are the ones criticizing Israel and being overtly or openly anti Semitic. This is true on both sides of the aisle. It is a troubling trend among American youth in general. But go on with your partisan worship. Why worry about the ominous future, when you can reinterpret the present?May 28, 2021 11:01 am at 11:01 am #1978449
Look at what happened in the U.S. under the last President. Oh, you can’t see clearly. And why not? The truth is attacks on Jews have been trending up in all areas for a long time. Another truth. The public is never under the Republicans or Democrats watch. We have a broad democracy that gives over much of it’s cultural sway, to non partisans.May 28, 2021 11:01 am at 11:01 am #1978450
“Not to mention that the whole progressive agenda is anathema to Torah.”
Not to mention, is the way to put it. Because you never could do more than mention it. Torah is all composing. Broader then the land. Deeper than the sea. It encompasses whatever agenda is active at the moment in question.
Moreover, you would be hard pressed to accurately describe what the progressive agenda is. Any why it would be mine bending to find approval for it. The Torah does not command up to be politically active. Or even to make sense of it.
Perhaps it is better that you post these things all the time without backing it up. There are way too many distorters of Torah without you mixing in some more partisanship.May 28, 2021 12:49 pm at 12:49 pm #1978499DBSParticipant
“It encompasses whatever agenda is active at the moment in question.”
Abortion and LGBTQ+ and telling us to take off our Yarmulkes? Man, we must have different Torahs!May 28, 2021 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1978527
>> Look at what happened in the U.S. under the last President.
“why bad things happen to good people” ? there is actually one case where naive looks are not good for democracies.. pollsters say that last 6-12 months before election determine people’s attitude.
BUT, when we are dealing with adversaries, they can easily exploit that! So, if a US president stands up to Nazis, Soviets, or Chinese, it may lead to increase of hostilities, oil crises, wars, Korean airlines going down, maybe even pandemics. Don’t let them manipulate your opinion (easier said than done).May 28, 2021 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1978517mesivta bachurParticipant

shoftim veshtrim titen leha?
tzedek, tzedek tirdof?
the limitation on social activity is to stay within the Torah. If Hashem would not give us Torah, we would not live space for other nations, as we have strength/hutzpa (azut) like dogs among animals and roosters among birds (Beitza about 25)May 28, 2021 5:36 pm at 5:36 pm #1978553torahvaluesoverpartyParticipant
N0mesorah-“Not to mention, is the way to put it. Because you never could do more than mention it. Torah is all composing. Broader then the land. Deeper than the sea. It encompasses whatever agenda is active at the moment in question.”
-ive seen statements like this before and I think it’s ridiculous. Obviously the Torah is the Torah, and no political agenda aligns with all TorahValues. Nobody is suggesting that. However we have a life to live, and when there is different political parties, driving for different policy, we should support that which aligns more closely, that aligns on more issues, with TorahValues. I don’t think there is a question which party that is.May 28, 2021 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm #1978555
tzedek, tzedek tirdof and tikkun haolam are the most overuse words by the PC crowd, how about the rest of the torahMay 28, 2021 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm #1978604HealthParticipant
NoMesorah -“Pick any pundit from right to left who gripes about America’s finances. Then track when that shift started and what caused it. You’ll see that almost all of them encourage from Reagan.”
Let’s say that you’re right, but why must every President since then make our deficit Worse?!?
The only one that was trying to fix the Economy was Trump.
He would have, but the Covid -19 came.
Trump was really on Track, because he was a former businessman.
The others only know to take others money, like Taxation!
We are going Full Circle.
We started the US because of Taxation without Representation.
That’s what the DemonCrats believe – Government has to be in control of everything!May 28, 2021 7:42 pm at 7:42 pm #1978602
common, this is I mentioned limitation. Of course, a response to a Hashem command “how about the rest” is not really appropriate.June 27, 2021 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #1986607
So, Pres Biden told us that he’ll do the job of distributing vaccines that Pres Triump provided to him. As it is, new vaccination rates are decreasing steadily from April, now at 0.2% per day. Canada, many EU countries are doing 1% a day. Some of then are already ahead of US in number of people with at least 1 vaccine and no sign of slow-down. According to a left-wing articles, Feds do not have many ideas beyond what governors are already doing and sending Kamala and EdD Jill around. US seemingly has hard time even re-sending expiring vaccines to countries that would use them. Sad.June 28, 2021 1:03 pm at 1:03 pm #1986808hujuParticipant
Regan was New York State Comptroller some years back, maybe when Pataki was governor. I couldn’t tell you whether Biden is the new Regan since I remember nothing about the old Regan.June 29, 2021 6:31 am at 6:31 am #1986925
Huju, Edward Van Buren Regan died almost seven years ago. Thus, he is an old Regan. So was Gerald Augustine Paul Regan, who was Prime Minister of Nova Scotia. There is a new Regan – Seamus O’Regan Jr. – who is Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources. His late father was a Justice of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador. I guess that that makes them the new and old Regan.June 29, 2021 8:27 am at 8:27 am #1987003hujuParticipant
