    In 10 days from now Donald J Trump will be as relevant as James Earl Carter, why is everyone so worked up?

    Jimmy Carter became relevant after his presidency when he brought about the Israeli peace plan with Egypt.

    If you read left wing media (BTW, in “Social media” that may soon be the only type), Donald J. Trump is a cross between the Satan and Hitler, who if he has a chance will either destroy the country or the world, and is of course the source of all evil in society (disease, bad weather, excessive wealth if you are rich, poverty if you are poor, etc).

    On the other hand, a third of the country, who don’t read the politically correct truth media, people often called “Deplorables”, believe Trump saved the nation and the world, and is their only hope for a better life and full civil rights and a “place at the table”, and also believe Trump was cheated in the last election by use of irregular and easy to fake mail ballots. And these people won’t go away.

    The Democratic party has no rational platform. All they can do is convince people to support them out of hatred for the Republican party.

    Once President Trump is out of office, they’ll lose their scapegoat.

    @Reb E, the Camp David Accords happened while he was President, afterwards he was a irrelevant windbag with a intense dislike of Israel, his only redeeming value is that he built houses for the homeless after he wrecked the American economy.

    I certainly find anyone who would forcibly enter and vandalize our nations capitol and smear the walls with human feces to be deplorable. Add to that fact these individuals wanted to overturn a legal election via force I’d add treasonous to the pejoratives as well.

    Unfortunately Trumpism won’t end with the swearing in of Joe Biden. Trumpers are planning on violent confrontations in our states capitols as well as DC on 1/20.

    I am reading about a local restaurant owner who was there peacefully, posted about it somewhere, then posted an apology. Online mob responded that they are not going to that restaurant ever and “who knew those restaurant owners are mostly Republicans”. Another person fired from a medical job when recognized on a video, also not as part of disturbances.

    If this peaceful gathering of “patriots” had marched from the Trumpkop’s rally at the white house to the capital and then hakofos around the capital screaming “Donald is Moishiach” and “Stop the Genevah” then I would agree with some of the posters above. However, this was a deliberate call for violence by the President that energized a mob of right wing militants to rush the capital and engage in the mayhem and violence we have now seen. Instead of joining the mob as he had just promised, he walked back to his office and sadistically watched the gruesome violence against the capital police and did nothing for over an hour as the telephone calls from the Capital were begging him to speak out and stop the violence.

    Unfortunately the facts aren’t the way you and the TDS Press present them.
    The Riot at the Capitol started way before Trump speech ended.
    It was started by a group, probably Leftists, being that’s their MO all last year.
    The Trump supporters came after the Trump’s speech ended.

    Go and watch the video of the police officer having his head bashed in by the fire extinguisher or the other one being crushed in the doorway by he rioters while the vile animal sits in the WH wathcing the events real time and sadistically enjoying the reality show he fomented. THATS WHY. He needs to be humiliated, punished and made to suffer both now and once he is dragged out of the door next week by the secret service kicking and screaming so the c’v any future president of ANY party will know there are consequences for this kind of direct and active facilitating violent insurrection or even violent rioting.
    Other than that, I agree that we shouldn’t care.

    GH- in reference to your most recent post, how is it possible to hold Republicans and Trump supporters as a whole responsible for all of that disgusting Behavior but I don’t remember you using those same standards for smashed heads knifings and gunshots during 6 months of rioting that our Democratic leaders supported politically and monetarily. I am not saying that got a pass this should, I am questioning the people who are so sickened by this Behavior who didn’t seem to take note of the other Behavior but more so knowing those people were not representative of all Democrats why are these people representative of all Republicans? And again I’m really asking I’m not trying to provoke it’s a question that I have had that I can’t get an answer to as much as a heated response instead

    Right, because a politician having an anti-Israel slant is as relevant to American Democracy as a politician inciting an insurrection riot.

    Frankly, nothing I say will convince you why impeachment should occur now. So keep on wondering. When you can move past lies about election fraud maybe we can then talk. But if you and others here are simply stuck in a web of lies, there is no real common ground to have a conversation.

    This is also the exact sentiment of the people you oppose. That is why there has been very very little discussion here.

    So to be clear you agree with these two points, which are in your prior comments:

    1. There was no election fraud that would overturn the election

    2. Trump incited a riot (which has led to the deaths of several people).

    As to point 1, it follows that Trump and supporters deliberately spread lies and engaged in what might be extortion (with the phone calls).

    So as long as the above holds true, impeachment seems to make sense.

    As to the logistics, well it might interfere slightly with Joe Biden’s legislative agenda, but if the Senate votes to convict you take Trump off the table in the 2024 election. As to congressmen whining about that you should not impeach as it is divisive, sounds like they just want to avoid a vote on impeachment because it might offend Trump supporters and to vote against impeachment, means you refused to impeach someone who lied and his lies incited an insurrection riot. If you don’t impeach for this, seems silly to impeach for whatever Nixon did (or Clinton did, which was a personal matter). I mean, if you don’t impeach for this, then what do you ever impeach for?

    I am really worried what trump can still do in these days left and the possible violence to come- by refusing to step down peacefully and recognizing the will of the voters he has done lasting damage to not only ours, but all democracies around the world. I believe that he was sent to us as a warning of the fragility of our world and society and what self absorption and the utter inability to Ever apologize/ self reflect can wrought. It has damaged my faith to see so many taken into his influence. Even if some good things happened for israel in the past for years, what a cost.

    @Health Unlike Donald J Trump I am a Republican and have always been a GOPer,

    Trump’s political party affiliation has changed numerous times. He registered as a Republican in Manhattan in 1987, switched to the Reform Party in 1999, the Democratic Party in 2001, and back to the Republican Party in 2009.

    In 1987, Trump placed full-page advertisements in three major newspapers, proclaiming “America should stop paying to defend countries that can afford to defend themselves. The advertisements also advocated for “reducing the budget deficit, working for peace in Central America, and speeding up nuclear disarmament negotiations with the Soviet Union”. DCCC chair Rep. Beryl Anthony Jr. told The New York Times that “the message Trump has been preaching is a Democratic message.

    The fact is that the senate is 50/50 the house almost so, even if there is total Democrat control we had that before and we survived, Hashem has his chesbonos and anyone who says he know what it is is a total and aboslute kofer.

    Everyone is all worked up because the current social climate thrives on getting people worked up. Specifically, promoting that you believe in an ideology and getting people worked up to fight those who oppose it is the best way to drum up support for yourself.

    Most of the media doesn’t like Republicans, and they found that Democrats can get worked up really quickly if you find them an enemy so they promoted Trump as The Sutun incarnate.

    The Republicans in turn got their constitutes worked up by pretending that Trump is what everyone wanted all along and everyone is a victim because of that.

    Trump lost the election and was plummeting towards irrelevancy, so he worked up his supporters into following a farce.

    The Democrats realized that they can get their constitutes worked up more if they gang up to fight a lame duck than they would if they did something useful, like fix the mess that is the COVID vaccine.

    And here we are. Who knows where we’ll be next week?

    @health If Rav Moshe ZT”L was as strong against abortion as people claim he was, he would have made a big deal to oppose Roe v. Wade. Instead he did the opposite. Rav JB Soleiveitchik ZT”L was much more machmire on abortion than Rav Moshe and did oppose it.

    And I do believe it’s a machlokes if Trump was oiver on Giluy Arayos, and a different machlokes if Buttigieg was. So both are in the same boat.

    All this is besides the point. What changes have the GOP done to stop things like DADT or overturn Obergefell v. Hodges? What has Trump said in opposition to things like the NY state law of partial birth abortions? Just because far-right conservative commentators (even some frum ones) like to pretend that the Republicans in DC are on the side of morality as defined by the Torah, does not make it true.

    Yser: Rav Moshe was adamantly opposed to abortion. This is a matter of undisputed record. For you to falsely imply that he did “the opposite” of opposing it, is a libelous falsehood.

    There’s no machlokes that Buttigieg is clearly guilty of giluy aroyos.

    Obergefell was opposed by Republicans. But only the Supreme Court can overturn it. And Trump has appointed Supreme Court justices opposed to Obergefell.

    @health Mishkav Zachar is a mahlokes if it’s a mitzvas bnei Noach. Same with a married man being mezaneh. There is no question that the latter is morally wrong, even for goyim, both according to the Torah and according to the current secular social systems. So I don’t see why we are making a fuss.

    @ujm I believe that Rav Moshe ZT”L wrote in Iggors Moshe that abortion is bad, but sometimes necessary for medical reasons so we should not oppose building abortion clinics because it may endanger pregnant women who are in a state of sakonos nefashos. While not explicit endorsement of RvW, it’s certainly not the Xtian or OANN approach to the matter either.

    3. Mishkav Zochor is multitudes worse than a married man being mezane (with an unmarried woman). Including for a bnei Noach.
