    coffee addict,

    When you stop mentioning Obama to defend Trump , reality will hit you.

    akuperma ,

    That is not the tradition of all Presidents.

    Trump and his administration is saying that it is all fake news. No recession. No crisis.

    Read W’s memoir for his admission to mistakes in Katrina, Mission Accomplished and others.

    Obama took responsibility for healthcare.gov failure and the BP spill failure and got them resolved and fixed.
    He took responsibility for Democrats losing the house and the Benghazi attack.

    He took the Financial meltdown that he was handed by Bush and turned it completely around.

    Trump is going to leave the Democrats to fix his financial failures while he is partying in Mar O Largo on his yacht.

    This Post comes directly from Trump himself.

    Anything that happens while I am President that is good , I will take credit for.
    Anything that happens while I am President that is bad , I will place the blame on everybody else.

    He is a man incapable of taking real responsibility.

    There is no new information here. It is known that many other gedolim disagreed with the Igros Moshe.
    That other gedolim disagreed does not minimize his psak one bit.
    His psak is chay vkayam and can be relied upon by every Yid.
    The only one that can change the Igros Moshe’s psak is the Bal Igros Moshe himself.

    I am concerned because I see some people trying to minimize the Kavod and Gadlus of Rav Moshe Feinstein ztsal because they have an agenda to disallow shavers.

    Her language was inexcusable.

    Instead of showing ourselves as a Ohr Lagoyim and showing how our Torah shows respect for every human being, people are more concerned about the Jewish Nation’s Registered Trademark on the words concentration camp .

    There are many US migrant detention centers , in some of them the conditions are appalling.
    There is a Texas facility meant for 125 people holding over 900.
    24 immigrants have died in ICE custody under Trump , at least 7 of them children.
    There are “missing children” – separated from their parents. ( Similar to the sefardim in EY.)

    Her words are indefensible, but her point is on the mark.

    Most everyone reading this website was alive for the 8 years of Obama and remember that the Republican party was guilty of the exact thing that you are ascribing to the democrats.
    (And why take a swipe at Michelle Obama ? Hmm..)
    How many of the Republicans worked on and voted for Obamacare?
    Why did McConnell steal a Supreme Court nominee from Obama ?

    The target of an investigation does not get to decide whether the investigation is warranted. Nor does he get to complain about the money spent on it.
    This investigation was due to a cyber attack against our country by an enemy nation that affected the most basic right of every citizen in the democracy – the right to vote and elect democratic (not the party) leaders.
    Trump’s whining about it shows how unfit he is to be president.

    Correct. That does not mean that the house should not due it’s duty if it determines that the POTUS deserves to be impeached.

    No. That is not my opinion. Maybe direct your question to OP who said that ” have never spent an entire presidents term trying to get rid of them.”
    Of course he has to do something to deserve to be impeached. With all the information we have NOW that is in the Mueller Report , he more than deserves it. Whether the Democrats will actually go for it , is a political question.

    2scents,

    As he said:
    “The appointment order directed the office to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. This included investigating any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign.”
    “Every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in court.”
    “When a subject of an investigation obstructs that investigation or lies to investigators, it strikes at the core of the government’s effort to find the truth and hold wrongdoers accountable.”
    “The report has two parts addressing the two main issues we were asked to investigate. The first volume of the report details numerous efforts emanating from Russia to influence the election. This volume includes a discussion of the Trump campaign’s response to this activity, as well as our conclusion that there was insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy.

    And in the second volume, the report describes the results and analysis of our obstruction of justice investigation involving the President.

    The order appointing me Special Counsel authorized us to investigate actions that could obstruct the investigation. We conducted that investigation and we kept the office of the Acting Attorney General apprised of the progress of our work.

    As set forth in our report, after that investigation, if we had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the President did commit a crime.”

    Mueller was never going to say that Trump committed a crime since he could not be indicted as a sitting president anyway.
    The only thing he could say was that he did not commit one. On that Mueller says that he could not say a crime was not committed.

    2scents,

    There is nothing in what Mueller said for the Republicans to be happy about.
    .
    He said straight out that he was never going to indict Trump for collusion and that he did not exonerate him from committing a crime by his report.” Charging the President with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider.The Department’s written opinion explaining the policy against charging a President makes several important points that further informed our handling of the obstruction investigation. ”

    He also confirmed that the Russians meddled in our elections.
    “The first volume of the report details numerous efforts emanating from Russia to influence the election. This volume includes a discussion of the Trump campaign’s response to this activity, as well as our conclusion that there was insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy.”

    This affirms what the Democrats have been saying since the beginning to Trump’s and the Republican’s wild lies . The slogan “No Collusion” was and always will be a meaningless slogan. Just as meaningless as MAGA. He was never going to be convicted of collusion.
    It blows away the Trump talking point of ” lets get all those who surveilled me during my campaign.” He was under surveillance because the Russians attacked out elections.
    The Republicans have been living a lie for the past 2 years and the emperor has no pants.

    Trump could demand that there be a Constitutional amendment that declares him King of America for life and that his family members inherit this position and all the Republicans would support it.
    Mitch Mcconnell will extol the virtues of such an amendment and proclaim that it has been a long time since we have had such a great man as president. Only he can solve all of our economic problems. Only he can deal with world leaders and ensure that America is no longer taken advantage of.

    Fox news, Hannity,Levin and Tucker will all declare this as MAGA.

    Trump will hint that his supporters have guns in case you oppose.

    Some Rabbonim will declare in the most serious of tones that it is a sign from Heaven that Trump is King Koresh and anointed by Hashem and the Torah demands us to support him.
    Certain Jewish publications will agree that this is the greatest single event in American history and how can we protest when Trump is so good for the Jews. The democrats are anti semites and this will keep them out of control of America forever.

    Democrats will be accused of being obstructionist traitors and apikorsim who don’t want Moshiach to come.

    This is the upside down topsy turvy world we live in right now. Trump above all.

    I hope everybody will laugh out loud at this post.

    ujm,

    “Sometimes they’ll even insist on pulling the plug against the family’s wishes.”. I am not sure where you get this statistic from. Was a survey done on those who support abortion pulling the plug against the family’s wishes ? They are 2 separate issues. Although for a Torah Jew -they are the same – life is life.
    Healthcare in America is run like a business and Doctors, Nurses,Insurance Executives, and Hospital Executives are all part of the decision to pull the plug. There are many of them that are not pro-abortions.

    I will repeat what I wrote above :
    If you have an abortion , you have violated halacha.
    If you engage in toevah , you have violated halacha.
    If you pull the plug you are a rotzeach.

    Avram in MD,

    Not everyone gets married in holy matrimony. Besides death beneficiary, the Married status also affects many other purely secular legal and financial issues. Once example is insurance coverage. Another is taxes.

    Regarding Abortion – I doubt that you think that the SCOTUS never read any books. They allowed it with full knowledge of what it says in the science books.

    Regarding your hypothetical question about life staring at 4 months – whenever I debate this issue with strong minded , women’s lib oriented people they are astonished that anyone could even think of such a situation. They are amazed that someone can compare a fetus in a woman’s body to a baby outside it.

    Non pro lifers are further amazed at the callousness that pro lifers show to adult humans who are living but they are refugees, immigrants or of a lower financial status.

    You are one of the few people who post whose opinion I value.
    You are only referring to abortion and not to the other aveira that was being talked about. What would you do with that avaira?
    Regarding abortion – I will argue with you because the debate of when life starts is at the crux of the abortion issue. Only in the Torah do we find a fetus is a human life.
    Every non-jew living in America does not need to be restricted based on the Torah’s definition of when life starts.

    If you have an abortion , you have violated halacha.
    If you engage in toevah , you have violated halacha.
    If you believe the torah allows all abortions you are a kofer
    If you believe the torah allows toevah , you are a kofer.
    In America is it allowed to engage is these 2 activities. Therefore these 2 American laws validated by the Supreme Court are kefirah.

    If a Jew wants to live in a country where these 2 activities are forbidden, they can move there,
    We do not because we enjoy the freedoms of America.

    Liberals believe that if these activities are permitted by the Supreme Court of America than the laws should reflect that discriminating against people who engage in these activities is illegal.

    Just like discrimination against shomer shabbos employees is illegal.

    Trump and the Republicans were just trounced in the recent election. (Besides losing the popular vote 2 years ago.)

    America elected the Democrats in congress to act logically and ethically against Trumo.

    Pelosi as the Speaker of the House is doing exactly that. She has the support of most Americans who love what she is doing.

    Stop listening to fox news and Hannity and Levin. Everything that comes out of their mouths makes a person dumber. Trump can say 2 weeks before the shutdown on national TV that he is taking responsibility and you still don’t blame him.

    She generated talk about the shutdown affecting people and Trump\Republicans are acting as if they couldn’t care less.

    You have both proven my point that she has not said or done anything that deserves censuring from the body which she is a part of – the congress of the USA.

    if Trump would have repeated constantly ” a complete and total shutdown of Jews entering the United States ” you would not be satisfied that he only blocked Jews from 5 countries. You would be rightfully mad at the anti-Semitic rhetoric that got him elected.

    You posted that you were responding to coffee addict when you were responding to me.

    I will repeat what I just posted a few minutes ago that this thread is exclusively about comparing her to Steve King. That is what I was referring to.
    It is not a debate on her views of the Israel Palestine conflict or who is in control of Gaza.
    It is not a debate on Hamas or Hummus. It is not a debate on ISIS . Not is it a debate on authoritarian dictatorial governments that kill people – like Putin, Saudi Arabia and Erdogan.

    Since people might suspect me of being on her side – I will say again that I disagree with her about everything she says regarding Israel.

    But everyone here who lives in the malchus shel chesed in Galus USA , needs to remember that for the next 2 years there is a Palestinian/Muslin lady in Congress who will be giving her opinion and taking the Palestinian side of this conflict.

    Here is A Houston-based structural engineer’S assessment on the wisdom of erecting the 1,954 mile barrier proposed by Donald Trump .
    – the project would run up against a variety of problems, including landowner challenges, potential ecological damage, and higher flash-flooding risks.
    – constant maintenance requirements and unexpected glitches would obliterate original cost estimates
    – the effectiveness of the wall is in no way guaranteed. “I could, right now, purchase a 32 foot extension ladder and weld a cheap custom saddle for the top of the proposed wall so that I can get over it,” she writes.
    And, she adds, the wall could be easily breached by next-generation drones that could pick up and lift people soon—let alone by the time the project is completed.
    – the prototypes they came up with either do not do the job ( how long does it take to drill a hole in these walls or dig a tunnel underneath ?) or are impossible to build.

    How can Trump shut down the government over this ?
    Open the government and have a discussion with congress on money for the wall.

    Not everything that comes out of the mouth of a politician with a D after his name is the policy of the democratic party. Nor should it be a paslus in voting for democrats. That should be pashut and agreed upon by all. There are many different personalities and views in the democratic party.

    Similarly, there are many statements that come from politicians of the Republican party that are anti Torah and I am sure you do not agree with. Does that pasul them ?

    A favorite tactic of right wing radio hosts is to find the one idiotic politician/celebrity to say something stupid and to make believe as if every normal democrat holds this way.

    Most of what is assumed to be the opinions of democrats is based on this generalization.

    The quote: “every time they are in power, they try to shrink Israel’s borders, force them to ceasefires, etc. Don’t forget.” is simply false and inflammatory.
    Both democrat and republican presidents try to make peace in the region and save lives.
    They both want the 2 sides to come together for an agreement.

    The policy of democrats is not that Israel has to give up land or force them into ceasefires willy nilly.

    Coffee Addict:

    You cherry picked 3 to disagree with.
    At least we agree with the other 5.
    On2) : I used that example just for such a response. A failed campaign promise is not usually considered an outright lie but a failure. When Obama promised that you could keep your doctor it was not a lie. The Congress and the reality of the current health care system resulted in the failure to implement that particular promise.
    On 3): This one is hard for me to believe that you disagree with since Trump himself admitted after being forced to admit that he had zero evidence that there were middle easterners in the group.

    On 4) There is a current immigration and border security system in place. Nobody can just emigrate to America. Building a wall on the southwestern border is ineffective and a waste of resources. We do not need to protect the border by putting children in cages. Read the bipartisan immigration bill that Schumer authored that had $40 billion for border security.

    1) “We will build a wall along our Southern border and Mexico will pay for the wall.”
    2) “We will get rid of the Affordable Care Act.”
    3) “Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in” the caravan. ”
    4) “Democrats oppose any effort to secure our border.”
    5) He didn’t cancel a political rally after Pittsburgh Shabbos Terrorist attack because after Sept. 11, “the New York Stock Exchange was open the following day.”
    6) “We had a massive landslide victory in the Electoral College.”
    7) “No administration has accomplished more in the first 90 days.”
    8) “There is “no system to vet” refugees from the Middle East. ”

    Ben L,

    “Pre-existing conditions” was understood by all to mean existing before you were covered with health insurance. That was never a lie.
    The ACA has been the law for 8 years. Republicans were forecasting that it would die on its own accord. It hasn’t. It is still healthy and robust and working. That is why the Republican’s are no longer running to repeal or replace it.
    Lie 3. I agree that was a lie. But healthcare costs were going up anyway. So what it your point ?

    Are you saying that since Obama lied about the ACA so Trump gets a pass whenever he wants to lie ?

    Ben L,

    Everybody, including Republicans, want to reign in healthcare costs.

    It is time for truth:

    I do not understand your response.
    Please quote what I said and your response to it.

    Ben L,

    BH , you are healthy now.

    Obama’s lie is not glossed over and he acknowledged it and did apologize exactly 5 years ago- “I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” he told NBC News in an exclusive interview.

    CTLAWYER,

    I don’t remember calling them entitlements. Thanks for the explanation of how the 2 systems were set up. My point was that the benefit that American’s enjoy from the 2 systems was legislated by Democrats.

    Neville,

    Many Jews are under the false impression that the Republicans are the only party that represents the Torah’s moral values. My point is that Democrats represent many of the Torah’s moral values.

    I do understand if people are of the opinion that the anti-toevah stance of the Republican’s trumps the Democrat’s assist all humanity stance. I just politely disagree.
