January 19, 2021 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm in reply to: Frum Man Has “Credible Information” That Trump Will Remain President #1940437
There’s the matter of “even if a sword is resting on your throat, don’t despair, and yeshuas H’ k’heref ayin”. Also, not just the Goyish Prophets. Also R’ Isser Weisberg, and (to a degree) also R’ Mendel Kessin. Though neither used quite the wording in that audio, rather quoted from a Torah perspective.
I’m not surprised, because i heard sources (on radio and online) discussing a war taking place within the military, and that these past years, many arrests have been made on the quiet, and that the time will come when all will be made clear. On a tangent, there’s also the matter of what Resh Lakish predicted thousands of years ago, about a sun coming out of its hiding place “minartika” (etc.etc.) which actually jives with recent observations of Planet-X approaching.
Health, yw, and you better believe, all you say doesn’t surprise me.
My response is – firstly, everyone knows Trump shoots from the hip, and that his language is far from polished, which i can very much relate to, as i’m far from being the world’s most polished orator myself. I saw a transcript, and here’s the relevant cross-section:
But I said something’s wrong here. Something’s really wrong. Can’t have happened. And we fight. We fight like hell.
And if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.
Our exciting adventures and boldest endeavors have not yet begun.
My fellow Americans, for our movement, for our children and for our beloved country, and I say this despite all that’s happened, the best is yet to come.
So we’re going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue, I love Pennsylvania Avenue, and we’re going to the Capitol and we’re going to try and give — the Democrats are hopeless, they’re never voting for anything. Not even one vote — but we’re going to try and give our Republicans, the weak ones because the strong ones don’t need any of our help, we’re going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country. So let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue. I want to thank you all.
God bless you. And God bless America. Thank you all for being here. This is incredible. Thank you very much. Thank you.”
The way i interpret the above, is that he meant everyone should protest ORALLY with “gevald” in similar fashion as lib’s do, thereby giving Republicans the moral support to take back the country in a constitutional way.
If you and other lib’s choose to interpret it otherwise, that’s your opinion, but in any case, it’s an insult to imply that people within a crowd don’t have control over their own actions, such as refraining from violence, regardless of what they THINK the president meant.
Then, as others pointed out, there was the matter of timing, but i’m too bored to research that, so i’ll leave it to you to research the truth about when Trump used the above-pasted words, vis-a-vis when-and-where the storming of the capitol began. It’s enough i pasted the above section of the speech-transcript, and i believe the talk hosts i heard on radio to have said the truth about the timing.
As for the courts, from what i gather there have been rejections within courts, because there’s major corruption everywhere. Not because the lawsuits didn’t have constitutional validity.
P.S. taking into account that “lev melochim b’yad Hashem” – perhaps the president’s faux pas both with Covid, and also Jan.6, was middah kneged middah, wherein he stabbed the Kurds in the back, and also didn’t free Pollard sooner, and so he wound up stabbing himself in the back, thru his non-careful choice of words. Mind you, a true narcissist would have been VERY careful to never use wording like that, as they’re very deliberative, very premeditative about making themselves look good.
P.P.S. I wonder how many of those who label others “conspiratists” are of Hungarian heritage. Specifically, those Hungarians who scoffed when Eastern Europeans warned them of mass genocide. I can just picture the Eastern Europeans being labelled “conspiratists” too!
A potential scenario might be if those in the military who favor constitutionalism prevail over the non-constitutionalists within the military, and then would administer a temporary form of martial law to straighten everything out.
…with Moshiach as the main coordinator!
P.S. On a tangent, another foretold scenario, as foretold by Resh Lakish long ago, [could be Planet-X’s final approach, meting out tit-for-tat] – that’s using my own wording and speculation.
There’s also similarities with Netanyahu vs. the Israeli Leftists, Supreme Court, etc.
Syag, thanks for taking on ubiquitin’s response, as i couldn’t tackle it!
Smerel & Health, i seriously annoint both of you to preside over the Supreme Court. That would endow it with a burst of fresh air. When people have their minds set, they’re often set in stone. Never mind the timing of the crime, and never mind the gross election fraud. Never mind that the so-called facts of the “crime”, and the so-called “non-proof” of fraud wouldn’t hold up in a real court. They prefer that 2+2=5 be set in stone too, Orwellian-style.
As for “Everyone is considered innocent until proven guilty”, Eliezer, then why have you condemned Trump as a so-called Narc? If he were a true NPD, i seriously doubt his children would have turned out to be so full of zest, and such advocates of his. More likely, they’d have turned out resentful, submissive, or maladjusted in one way or another. You said your son has ADHD, so have you given thought to how he might have turned out, had he had Trump’s background?
I challenge y’all to debate Shapiro, Limbaugh, Levin and other conservatives on air. OK, so you’ll say you don’t get through, right?
Be that as it may, they’re intellectually analytical, and they dispute the claims of incitement.
Since libs are so fond of labelling people “conspiratist” perhaps its time the tables are turned, and =libs= are labelled conspiratists, for the so-called-incitement-to-violence claims against Trump. Limbaugh pointed out that [the lib media hardly ever, if at all, air the actual speech Trump made at the protest, and that’s because accusations in their own wording have more propagandist impact].
…not his precise wording, but the gist of it.
Shady Charedi, it may interest you to hear Rabbi Isser Weisberg’s video titled “Mr.President the ball is in your court”. You’re the rational one here, among many (not all) Mad Hatters, however well-versed they are at political, tech, and halachic jargon.
The reason truthful timelines would be hard to find may be due to, as you said, lib censorship. Such as for example, the squelching of that HCQ video by truth-speaking doctors.
A good number of the posters here have mindsets so similar to antifa, that i’d not be surprised if some of them are antifa or J.Street. Could be that something went awry in their past, such as trauma, certain influences, or whatever… I even sometimes wonder, however farfetched, if George Soros might not be a decades-long puppet of hypnotizers since WW2, chosen to be a fall-guy. As in novels by Nachman Seltzer. Fiction sometimes reflects reality.
I mean, if posters here had religious mindsets, wouldn’t they think more along the lines of “hevei mispallel b’shleimus shel malchus”? rather than openly speaking against Trump?? And i don’t mean just w/respect to the latest scenario, but even longer ago, when there was the ongoing war against Trump.
Truth tell, if anyone should be hate-filled, it’s me, and i am! I’ve many many reasons for that, most of which i won’t delve into. The most i’ll say for now, is that schools and the phony unhealthcare system are killers. And i hate them the way holocaust survivors hated nazi’s – the difference being that i’m getting zero reparations from the iconic Schenirer despite the irreversible health damage i incurred. Someone with my chronic unhealth should have never had to attend school, and which is why Rechnitz’ impassioned speech leaves me cold. (Trust me, his bleedin’ heart ain’t seen or felt nothin’ yet.)
But that doesn’t mean i can’t be objective about hotheads such as Trump, as the “least-worst” of the lot. With him “cancelled”, prepare for the rush to the abyss, it won’t be pretty.
Alway_Ask_Qs, you say ADHD isn’t much prevalent among presidents, but IMO, it sure is with Trump.
Reb Eliezer, more likely, Trump has been MISdiagnosed by spiteful biased others with an axe to grind. As for the rest of what you stated, did you take into account nurture (not just nature)? IMO, the reason many believe the media re: his so-called NPD, is due to a combo of his ADHD nature =and= Narc-Nurture. During his formative and prime years, he probably associated with a good number of true narcs, so its inevitable that it rubbed off, and he learned to mimick the sharks so as to be able to navigate them. (Like the story by Chaim Walder, about the boy in the [warsaw??] ghetto who learned to mimick nazi’s, and then actually enacted a nazi in real-life, thereby being able to help many fellow Jews. That was one fascinating story!
FYI, i’m acquainted with two ADHD people, both of whom are very much like Trump. Of course there are differences, such, that casual observers might not recognize the similarities. That’s because one is a chassidic teen boy who never learned much English, and the other is a conservative-Jewish woman who used to hobnob with rough/rowdy blue-collar types.
Both of them are tough cookies and behave alot like narcs (sounding off with self-focus, while not letting others get a word in edgewise, and frenzying when contradicted or interrupted, but they’re NOT true narcs as explained in my previous post). True narcs are calculating and deliberative, resorting to manipulations such as gaslighting, whereas ADHD’s tend to shoot from the hip instinctively or intuitively. People get easily deceived into judging people based on their cultural style, despite that their basic teva is really different than how their style makes them appear.
Finally, if you believe that “m’galglin zechus al y’dei zakai” – then shouldn’t you also believe that Trump, who pardoned Rubashkin, has a fair enough amount of “zakai” within him? And to pre-empt the “C” claim, i again emphasize that i don’t at all hold him responsible for the Covid, but rather consider him a victim of the machinations of the true Covid culprits, i.e. the Deep State and its henchmen.
All this doesn’t mean i’m not utterly upset by Trump AND rabbonim pushing the vaccine. Going along with Gates? For crying out loud.December 31, 2020 2:17 am at 2:17 am in reply to: President Trump Releases Jonathon Pollard From Parole to go to Israel #1933945
ujm, and Reb Eliezer, perhaps all that is beside the point. Perhaps a petition on behalf of a nirdaf is similar to a prayer, since it takes effort to compose same.
P.S. Reb Eliezer, if you believe in being dan l’kaf zechus, then read Kruse’ article at drjohnkruse. This isn’t to say Trump hasn’t had many flawed actions, such as vis-a-vis the Kurds, or not attending to the Pollards’ situation earlier. Nevertheless, anyone should realize that it’s been a vendetta against him from squat, whether Russia, impeachment, xenophobia.
IMO, the Deep State strategy for fast-tracking the vaccine was to PREMEDITATIVELY have all their bases covered, using Trump as scapegoat EITHER way. One flip of the coin was the story-line about “Xenophobic Racism” (as much as they shouted Russia Collusion). And they would have continued with that label forever, had he not caved in. And in the next phase of their premeditated plan, the other flip of the coin was the oh so pat story-line that Trump was responsible for the death of so many Americans with Covid. Which led to his fast-tracking the vax. The Deep State have mastered propaganda, as well as knowing how to manipulate peoples’ weaknesses.December 31, 2020 2:15 am at 2:15 am in reply to: President Trump Releases Jonathon Pollard From Parole to go to Israel #1933942
Reb Eliezer thanks for joining that petition on behalf of Pollard. I had duly noted that, despite our political differences.
I totally agree that Trump should have acted on Pollard earlier. I believe someone posed that to Rav Mendel Kessin quite awhile back, and i think he responded that who knows, that may be the reason why Trump is being so persecuted.
So many people have been rooting for the Pollards, that it’s about time they finally reached E”Y. Wishing Esther a speedy recovery!
Reb Eliezer, nope, not narcissim, because to somewhat quote John Kruse’ description of Trump, many people with ADHD, because of their distractibility, often jump quickly from one to another of their thoughts, fears, concerns and joys, and so, when they enter conversation with another person, they often feel intense pressure to articulate what they are thinking at the moment, because they know that their hold on any particular thought is tenuous, and as a result, they’re unable to step outside of this flow and remember some of the niceties of social discourse, which is why they are often perceived as self-absorbed, brusque, and inconsiderate because of the way they communicate.
Well, i’ve passed frum houses with solar light setups. So how do people work that out for Shabbos? By the way, don’t think this is a frivolous question. I need lighting. Not intended for “beauty”.
What i’d like most, is something online on this topic. Many times i’ve been frustrated at how little practical info is readily available online, so people can help themselves, no matter whether kashrus, or whatever. I really don’t feel comfortable calling rav’s or halacha hotlines. Been down that road plenty with these types of Qs, and suffice at that.
I think i should rephrase my Q a different way.
Do any of you have Solar lights along your driveways, walkways, etc., and if so, did your posek say that during Shabbos (daytime) it’s OK to walk past them, even if your shadow might be interpreted as “night-time” thus triggering them to turn on?
I’m not speaking of the neighborhood with all its camera’s and so forth. Rather, your own dwelling, where you yourself derive benefit from the lights.
Puriya cream & calmoseptine, are supposed to be good. MY BIL got relief smearing Aveeno anti-itch lotion on forehead (beige bottle & navyblue lid).
Also – apply aloe vera & cold-wet cloths. And alternate with oatmeal or naphtha soap.
Also mild diet, cutting citrus, spices, spices, sodium, alcohol, dehydrating environment, bright lights.
I once had the worst possible case of poison ivy, which causes similar symptoms, so i can relate. What had offered me some relief were Calamine, aveeno-lotion, cool baths & naphtha soap.December 14, 2020 1:18 am at 1:18 am in reply to: Toiveling basic George Foreman without cord getting wet? #1928320
Perhaps the same rabbi’s who arrange to sell chometz, can also arrange that, hmm?
Brother, how can a simple Q have turned into something so convoluted?
Some say to toivel, and some say “in a yoivel”
Some say Car-duffel, and some say Car-muffel
Let’s call the whole thing OFF! OK?December 8, 2020 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm in reply to: Toiveling basic George Foreman without cord getting wet? #1927155
P.S. I’m still showing KGN as the last poster on the NWO thread, even though that isn’t the actuality.December 8, 2020 4:10 pm at 4:10 pm in reply to: Toiveling basic George Foreman without cord getting wet? #1927154
This is confusing.
Are you saying that post-1927142 (and the one above it) are actually PM’s which are not publicly visible, even though they display to me on this thread? I absolutely never encountered this in my entire online experience, although i did once receive a PM which was not intended for me, but rather was the two moderators discussing my post to each other!December 8, 2020 11:21 am at 11:21 am in reply to: Toiveling basic George Foreman without cord getting wet? #1927008
On a tangent, is my response to the nwo post publicly Invisible? Because its visible to me, but my penname isn’t listed as the last poster in the thread-listing area.
Why is that? Is it a bug, or is it censorship – or what? I mean standard practice has usually been for moderators to PM people when their post is being deleted, along with a copy of the post. But what about if their post is invisible but they don’t know it?
We do not have a means of “pm-ing” posters when something gets deleted. We do, ocassionally, post it in ‘private mode’ which would be visible only to you but there would likely be a message inserted. I will check your post to see what is wrong.-29December 7, 2020 3:00 pm at 3:00 pm in reply to: Toiveling basic George Foreman without cord getting wet? #1926710
OK, thanks for the info, though i’ll try to avoid the cord getting wet. That’s OK according to halacha, so i was told by a rabbi.
Has it occurred to anyone here, including the OP, that people can agree with talk-radio on some aspects, but not on other aspects, such as vaccines? I am adamantly anti-vaxx, yet also adamantly believe in what so many of you call “conspiracy”. Many of you have bought into the Goebbel’s style of MSM propaganda, at the top of which are the terms “conspiracy/conspiratist”. Goebbel’s knew that if you repeat something often enough, people become programmed to believe it, even against their better judgment. Thus the term “conspiracy” which so many of you have swallowed hook, line & sinker.
After all, it has the connotation of “neb” or “wimp” doesn’t it? Hashem yeracheim, on anyone with the misfortune to be labelled conspiratist. Well, believe me, the public should be way less nervous of being labelled, than of becoming an actual physical puppet-slave of the propagandists. There are enough such slaves in China. The Chinese are the REAL neb’s, NOT those who are labelled “conspiratists”.
In fact, it’s because Avrohom Avinu’s mother decided to give birth to him in a cave, far from the corrupt Nimrod – it’s that – which enabled him to think for himself, against the tide of the times, and thus have a positive influence later on.
What confuses me about all this, though, is why both Trump and talk-radio hosts can simultaneously [purport to] be pro-vaccine, yet also imply their belief in a cabal/deep-state (…and/or whichever of the umpteen names its called)?
Because if they believe the latter, then shouldn’t they also believe that the deep-state, be it within Pfizer, Moderna, or whatever, are tweaking the vaccine toward their agenda?
P.S. I’m also adamantly at odds with BOTH the liberals’ AND conservatives’ ideas of healthcare utopia, having walked a disillusioning gauntlet of allopathic and alternative practitioners of all stripes. There is a much better way than either of their agenda’s, both in the health arena, and in the energy arena. So as far as i’m concerned, it’s not just Fake Media but also
Fake Medical, and also fake energy.
rightwriter, i’m with you, and here’s a poem i’m dedicating to the topic.
<i>Must i agree to tie my own noose?
I firmly believe in our right to choose,
and I don’t know how on earth we’d lose,
if only a critical mass would refuse!</i>
In Germany, what was legal was grossly immoral. Now’s no different. We need Meir Kahane A”H to stand front and center, and shout Never Again!
Possibilities: Civil war or secession:
The above comment regarding independent-minded voters of “Skver / KY” was quite shortsighted. As if there weren’t lucid minds who voted for Trump against the insane tide back in 2016, even while realizing the exercise in futility.
Yserbius, its not just that sour pickles are very sour – they’re also way too salty in my opinion.
I’m wondering if those who favor sour pickles have blood sugar that’s more on the high side. Because if so, then you’d have sweet saliva (which can help counterbalance Sour, Salty, Spicy & Bitter tastes).
If you don’t know yet through blood tests, you can test your saliva with litmus paper.
I hypothesize that people with acidic saliva like myself require less “extreme” tasting foods, because they don’t have sweet saliva to balance things out.
There’s also research been done regarding supertasters vs. non-tasters. That may also have something to do with it.
I think many rabbi’s might quote “Lev melachim v’sarim b’yad Hashem”. So accordingly, Trump was only a puppet, and Hashem was the one who enabled Covid to spread around. In fact, Rabbi Mendel Kessin opined that perhaps Covid was enabled in order to substitute for a worse gezera. These were his approximate words, NOT his exact words. The accurate version is on the torahthinking site.
As for Trump’s lack of conspicuous tear-gushing, has it occurred to you that perhaps he just doesn’t have it in him? Many males are uncomfortable showing emotions or being demonstrative. So he would feel phony (or shall i say “fake”?) to do so publicly.
Alternatively, perhaps he strongly feels that a display of emotion would cause liberals to think he’s an easy pushover.
To quote someone I know, “udehr yuh, udehr nisht”, and halevai that your outlook were aspaklariya hameira.
methinks the terms conspiracy & conspiratist & conspiracy-theory have become so overly used and abused by now as to have become trite. Go to any blog or forum and see how overly exhausted those terms are. My eyes are regurgitating the “C” words by now.
My point is that I assure you that rabbi/doctor/esquire Smith can run rings around you about this topic any time (given that he’s coming from a position of experience). But that’s IF he has time to spare and ONLY supposing that you debate him using logic, as i doubt he’d dignify leitzunus with a response.
JacobLev, do you really think that POTUS would be so dumb as to entrust his life solely to Public Health? Do you really believe everything which the media (both right and left) dole out? There’s a lot of decoys put into play. What i mean, is a cascade of diversionary static used as a cover-up. Whatever the exact term is.
Just because his doctor said remdesivir (or whatever) has been doing the trick, how do you know that’s not a cover for HCQ/zinc, or alternatively, “redundant” to HCQ/zinc?
As much as this may leave a sour taste in the mouths of many YWN members, there are still many frum people who have him constantly in their tefillos, just as they did long ago for the Russian Czar. The Torah says you’re supposed to be mispallel for shlemus of malchus, which is why i can’t fathom how YWN members openly oppose him.
You may cite his disloyalty to Kurds, and his neglect of Pollard.
Well that’s true. And that’s probably why he’s been made to suffer such persecution himself. (Actually the same demons who’ve persecuted him thus far, will persecute all of us if either they win OR he wins. It’s a lose/lose situation and only a miracle can save us.
Also, to all Never-Trumper’s i happen to know a frum guy who has =exactly= Trump’s personality and lack of middos. (Similar looks too) Yet so many of you are probably quick to forgive the Trump carbon-copies in your midst, but not the guy himself. Why? Because he’s a “goy” and the chutzpiniak isn’t? But it should be “punkt farkert” – better middos should be expected from acheinu!
nyny, the part you said re: German Culture in response to Bored, took the words out of my mouth!
The way this world works is that the same twisted minds who are twisted enough to have an agenda, will accordingly twist studies to suit their agenda’s. Insiders know that for the longest time, medical journals have published falsified studies.
And its not just HCQ, there’s been various other therapies proven effective which have been shoved under the rug.
And not just with Covid, but with so much more. Why just limit it to Covid? There have been all sorts of chronic illnesses which have been neglected for so many years. Did any of you even bother to give those illnesses consideration? There has been a world of Major Pain out there, because it is an olam hasheker. So given that it’s an olam hasheker, why are you suddenly so surprised?
Publicity is not what renders something truthful. Rather, the Whole Truth is what gives the truthful picture. And insofar as Covid, Rabbi Yitzchok Dovid Smith (who’s an attorney who litigated against euthanasia, and also has a background in infectious disease from UC Berkeley) says rabbonim and individuals need to educate themselves as to the “metzius hadavar”.
Here’s a summarized beginning excerpt of R’Smith, Esq.:
There is no place in Torah for a Jewish community to be governed by a committee of medical doctors. The concept of a doctor in Torah, and the permission to heal, is based on a personal relationship between a doctor and an individual patient where the doctor is both an expert in a disease and knows the patient personally. However, a doctor cannot make decrees for a community of individuals that he has never met.
The world is going through the pangs of the establishment of public health supremacy which plans on ignoring all other considerations, including Torah. Public health is NOT ‘refuah’ in Torah. It’s NOT a substitute for Torah.
In Round One of the Public Health decrees, the Rabbonim were overwhelmed with reports of ventilator shortages and deaths. They were not given proper access to evaluate the metzius hadevorim and innocently made decisions. Some background: In 1933 the idea of lives unworthy of life was introduced by the Nazi’s to justify euthanasia of the elderly, ill and disabled, including disabled children – with the participation of hundreds of asylum directors, pediatricians, psychiatrists, family doctors, and nurses. Their campaign did not at first target Jews – it targeted Germans. Only later in 1941 was their program expanded to what’s now known as the Holocaust. In the death camps there were selections between essential and non-essential people, those who could work and those who could not.
On Kristelnacht, only the Jewish businesses were shuttered, but in this year nearly all businesses have been closed, something unheard of in the history of the world, where it has now become illegal for many to make a living. That was followed by actual burnings in many places. The threatened ventilator shortages never happened, but the spectre of not enough hospital equipment is now being used by public health policy groups to push the rationing so-called ‘scarce’ health care. Fear of scarcity is a tactic to increase control of health care. Such as who has access to what care, and which people are no longer worth their efforts. Parents of disabled children and children of aging parents, should be concerned more about that, than corona virus.
Rabbonim, there has now been plenty of time to become knowledgeable. A Rov must educate himself in the metzius hadeovrim. Just as a Rov cannot make a ruling in industrial kashrus without understanding modern food production, so too a Rov cannot approve doctors who have been influenced in universities to push the public health program. A Rov must research and understand the cruel history of public health and its methods and goals. Every man and woman needs to educate themselves to evaluate what they are being told. People are misled into thinking that ‘novel’ means new and unknown, which only sows fear, and causes people to accept any decree so that they can be saved. I am prepared to make myself available to the community to present the tools needed to make educated evaluations.
[For examples of tricks they’ve used]:
(1) was never a death rate of 3.4% of the FULL population. Those numbers were
created by testing only a small group – the sick & dying – then claiming that that would apply to
the world. This is not science and is entirely dishonest.
(2) Government officials admitted that Covid-19 deaths include anyone testing positive, even when not experiencing symptoms.
(3) People who test negative are classified as Covid-19 deaths due to mere “suspicion”.
(4) In some states positive antibody tests are being recorded as “new cases” of COVID-19 for people who were infected months ago.
We all know people who died over the last few months. Most of the deaths were unnecessary. I also know people who did not have coronavirus who were publicized in the frum websites as having died from coronavirus. The early symptoms of a coronavirus infection are similar to panic attacks. Our Rabbonim and elderly saw their minyonim
destroyed before their eyes, were panicked by seasonal symptoms, rushed to hospitals, isolated, denied visitors, denied second opinions, told they had a disease with no cure, put on ventilators which hastened their death and then left to die without fluids or food, or actively killed with morphine drips. [Note that similarly] starvation diets and medicine overdoses were used in Nazi hospitals to get around the public’s opposition to direct euthanasia programs.
In my own research, I have discovered the horror stories of the conditions of the bodies reaching the chevra kadishas and heard first hand testimony from true front line doctors (not oncologists, radiologists and other specialists who report the ‘swooping’ of hospice care into the rooms of the COVID-19 patients in New Jersey urging morphine drips. I
have heard first-hand accounts of patients not being given fluids because the doctors considered the patients ‘dead’ while they were still breathing. Aleihem Hashalom is not the way to refer to these victims but rather Hashem Yikum Damam.
update – I made it by now but it came out too bitter =and= too thin consistency.
Furthermore, the chopped pieces – which i’d chopped in the food processor – barely melted, leaving itsie-bitsies of bitter choco interspersed throughout.
After pouring the mix into the pie-shell i tried remedying it with about 3 tablespoons of Confectionary Sugar, but it’s still bitter.
I guess i should have
(1) poured it into the shell much sooner.
(2) added a minimum of 4 TB granulated sugar into the juice-milk mix.
(3) added some cornstarch to the juice-milk mix to help thicken it.
(4) used a =can= of coconut milk – rather than the lime-green Gefen cardboard litre. That milk might have been creamier.
I don’t think i’ll ever bother with that again. The bitter chocolate caused my back to constrict and cramp up. Severely painful. I think Matbucha helps counteract that, interestingly.
By the way, I used Mekor blackberry juice. Now =that= is yummy, much more palatable than pom juice.
Chavie thanks – it’s the recipe on bakerita.com (doubled)

Anyway, I decided to add two TB sugar to sweeten it.
Good Y”T, bye now.
A few of you are wrong.
First of all, according to Rabbi Yitzchok Dovid Smith of Passaic (who’s also an attorney), nobody should fall into the trap of getting tested. What’s to stop them from false positives – which i read have been happening.
Secondly, I heard talk show hosts say that even if you’re a conservative inside a blue state, vote your conscience anyway, because this year, the popular vote counts as well (given that the media were making a tumult about Trump having lost the popular vote four years ago.
Of course, they didn’t mean it would count literally – more like morally (morale-ly?) And yes, i know most CR members are democrats. But i’m just pointing this out for the sake of others who may be reading this.
Many of the comments on this thread are (shall i say ironic) because it seems we’re at the end of the line, insofar as “times of geulah” in which case learning Ivrit is practically passe (everyone may have to switch to the original lashon kodesh similar to the teimanim – after all even Yiddish is borrowed from German, so technically Yiddish is a L”AZ. But aside from that, I believe Rav Dessler stated that in Moshiach’s times, communication will be via TELEPATHY, and [so-called] modern medicine will be considered primitive. Not at all shocking if anyone would research what’s truly available out there which all along has been suppressed no different than HCQ is currently suppressed.
And who says Moshiach might not revamp the entire monetary system?
And who says all the hilly areas of E”Y won’t be stretched out to make lots of the land livable b’ravchus, complete with bodies of water?
Chavie since you brought that up, I’d like to comment extensively on the “palate” issue, but first, can you please list the foodie sites? Hopefully not complex to sign onto? Long ago there used to be Mimi’s forum which i miss to the Nth degree as it was simple and helpful. Nowadays there’s blogs ad nauseum, most offering “royal admission” for a price.

To answer yours, it’s for a no-bake pomegranate pie consisting of pomegranate juice, coconut milk & what’s stated as 16oz. dark chocolate. The juice & milk are boiled in a pot, then poured into a heat-proof bowl which contains the chopped-chocolate. Then whisked. Then poured into a chocolate pie-crust (though i was planning on using a non-choc pie crust).
Now my comment on yours:
I’m convinced (and don’t put down hunches, because many truths were discovered thru same) that the reason bitter stuff, including some Pom juices, taste more bitter & harsh to some people is NOT JUST cuz they’re supertasters (per Dr.Bartoshuk’s research) but also because their blood-sugar is lower.
See, it’s known that diabetics have sweeter saliva. So that probably buffers both their palates AND bodies from bitter & harsh stuff. (Harsh as in salty, spicy, acidic, sharp, rough, dry). But it might also render them similar to those who are born without nerves which feel pain, and thus lacking a “warning system”.
Why should they favor sweet ‘n sour poultry? They already have the built-in sweet saliva!
Why should they favor sweet ‘n salty chips? They already have the built-in sweet!
Why should they NOT prefer Bittersweet (vs. Semisweet) chocolate? They already have the built-in sweet!
Why should they NOT prefer hot spices & cinnamon? They already have Sweet saliva to offset same!
…Furthemore, i’ve noted that diabetics whom i’ve been acquainted with, taste things differently than i do. They may say something is sweet, when to me it doesn’t taste sweet at all. Not just that, but interestingly, they need to add much more xylitol than i need to, just to make something taste “sweet” to them. Perhaps that’s cuz their built-in sweet-saliva “OutShouts” the sweet-xylitol?
(my only Q on that is why they need much sweetner at all, let alone loads?
So this is the fly-in-ointment of my theory, and confuses me.)
…Furthermore, i wonder if somehow, high blood-sugar develops Davka because some people are in the category of non-tasters (or even medium-tasters) as per Dr.Bartoshuk’s research which found that non-tasters have a lesser number of tastebuds.
And so, Chavie, if you know anyone in the field of medical research who ALSO is not quick to knock theories, perhaps s/he’d be interested in pursuing ALL the above questions with an open mind.
Because hardly anyone analyzes these things, rather they tend to gloss & skim over them superficially. They love to say “al taam v’reach ein l’hisvakeach”. True, but that doesn’t offer explanations.
See, it’s about time food labels offer PH & hotness & dryness labelling, rather than just sodium, carbs etc. So if someone would conduct such research, it might be a chessed to the supertasters and sensitives among us, by encouraging companies to provide such labelling, by factually pointing out the real differences in how varying anatomies experience food. Then again, by now this is moot, since we’ve probably reached the end of this world as we know it.
nightwriter, let’s say it like it really is. Which is that many frum authorities from within our communities also compliantly call out those who don’t wear masks, or who are anti-vaccines.
Which falls right in with the plans of the NWO & with socialist tactics found in China.
Ben Levi, at least as far as the secular world is concerned, there is an alternative to capitalism and socialism. And that’s the sort of system advocated by Foster Gamble (who is heir to Proctor Gamble), and who these past decades has been very much into the secular version of tikkun olam.
Ironically, his Jewish son was the one who had encouraged him to “follow the money” which clued him into lots of stuff he hadn’t previously realized. It’s beyond the scope of this forum (and my cognitive abilities), but you can research it.
Also, just because it’s impressive doesn’t mean it can ever come to fruition because there are too many negative entities which impede positive efforts toward change.
On a tangent, I’m not the least worried about CV compared to the decades i’ve endured until now. In fact, it could be many tzadikim were niftar of CV in order to spare them the worst yet to come. To put it subtly, there’s a huge bag of tricks ongoingly orchestrated by the sitra achra. Just listen to R’Alon Anava and some others. Also, approx. 2 months ago there was a Rav Pinto (Morocco?) who offered a strong prophetic warning.
Per Dr.Ferrer, pulmonologist in Florida (Cleveland Clinic Cough Clinc), Xylitol-saline nasal spray is advisable (among other things).March 27, 2020 6:54 pm at 6:54 pm in reply to: How Corona Taught Klal Yisroel to Make Small Simchas #1843971
I’m100% in agreement with Joseph too.
Consider this a belated, rhetorical answer. The reason the shechinah is crying, and why I need Moshiach to come, is because there’s a tragedy within our communities ongoingly taking place, yet the movers and shakers in our midst tacitly sanction it.
And that’s, in a word “bullying”.
Yeah, i know what y’all are thinking, and the answer is no. I’m not referring to “classic” bullying, since that’s NOT being ignored.
Rather, i’m referring to the bullying against segments of our society whom everyone chooses to ignore, who are the most helpless of all:
And that’s the ELDERLY & DISABLED & IMPRISONED IN OUR MIDST.
You can find elder-abuse (or neglect) in nursing homes.
You can find disabled-abuse (or neglect) in group homes.
You can find prisoner-abuse (or neglect) in prisons.
But i don’t foresee an EVENT ever taking place about this issue. And so the shechina is feeling the pain of all sufferers, since our souls and the shechina (a.k.a. The Field) are interwoven.
Moshiach needs to come to heal and rehabilitate all helpless sufferers. The ones caught in a painful trap of body & circumstances. Along with that, the shechina (who is interwoven with all souls) will be released and rehabilitated as well.
I’m trying to post yet a 3rd time, this time omitting the links which YWN doesn’t seem to allow.
Thanks for your feedback! I only found one of the above, by being a detective & using youtube’s suggestion to try it as “higale na” and even then, it took many tries.
And even the below isn’t quite the dveykus rendition i had in mind, even if it’s the correct song (israeli style):
As for Hishbati eschem, nope, the ones yielded by youtube isn’t the song i’d keyed into musipedia.
I wish there’d have been a way to download the tune i keyed on the musipedia flash-piano (and i ALSO wish there were an AUDIO alternative to ImgBB, since Clyp requires an account), but what the heck, i jumped thru lot of hoops, and below, finally, is the tune.
So after all that, do you know the words to the below “Donald-Duckified” tune?
midwesterner, I spent hours typing a response (due to finding links & recording song), and now for some reason my response isn’t registering. Very frustrating.May 28, 2019 2:58 am at 2:58 am in reply to: Percentage of men members vs. women on YW Coffeeroom? #1733807
RGP, don’t speak for all females, as you’ve described the antithesis of my own personality, which is half-track mind, quite incapable, and very serious. Based on my past experience, what interests most people, is only superficially & painfully of interest to me (i.e. occasional scrambling to keep somewhat up-to-date on what interests the “Joneses” or shall I say “Josephs”)
…and vice versa, what’s of interest to me, would be painfully boring to the Joneses & Josephs.
P.S. RGP, given that you’re blocked, consider this a rhetorical response…
P.P.S. To all & sundry – so my suspicions were vindicated but it makes no diff. as i’m a misfit anywhere, and always have been. Male, female, Jewish, other, no matter. The funny thing is, that both mainstream datiim and mainstream secularites have as their common-denominator that most don’t seem all that interested in what a healed-world might be like.May 28, 2019 1:32 am at 1:32 am in reply to: Makkot – measles, lyme, bedbugs, pit-bulls, power-outtages etc. #1733794
“If people don’t want to vaxx and want to stay away from the rest of us, you’d have a point. Don’t come to our shuls, schools, stores etc.”
OK, i’m all for the non-vaxxers setting up separate shuls and schools, as well as ordering groceries delivered to their doors, until this whole issue blows away. Now just sponsor the ads & arrange for the gedolim to unanimously sign a psak.May 28, 2019 1:28 am at 1:28 am in reply to: I noticed that Rebbitzen Golden P is blocked. Is that a good, bad or ugly thing? #1733799
You asked “good, bad, or ugly”
Sorry I can’t comment on that. However, IMO it’s horrifically ugly that there are zero frum forums where serious females (the types who shrink from aggressive debating) can feel comfortable posting. On the CR forums, if our posts don’t fit in with the prevailing pattern of boringly-brainy debates and boringly-aggressive leitzunut, so help us. And if we dare to truthfully whistleblow about urgent matters, we’re censored.
So yea, bring on the leitzunut however unconstructive – yet censor the very-constructive whistleblowing… just consider that it’s hypocrisy such as this which has turned off the most sensitive FFB’ers. And consider it a major miracle that some of us are still hanging on by the tips of our fingernails these many decades.
To Ocho and Lit:
I agree, and you took the words out of my mouth, except i’d have stated the posuk:
“B’rov daas yosif mach’ov” (as describing many litvaks)
However – the times are a’changin’ and enough of the newer generation have mixed and mingled, so that probably they’ve rubbed off on each other a bit. Probably the less savory stuff!
