USA Politics: A president unbound takes charge of the U.S.A. – commentary


It is Tuesday, November 3, 2020, presidential election day. Donald J. Trump has long predicted that he will win re-election by the biggest landslide ever. But precinct samples late in the day show that he is, instead, headed for a historic defeat.

Trump invokes executive power, cancels the election and installs himself in office for a second term. He uses as his authority his February impeachment acquittal of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. He especially cites his impeachment defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz: “Every public official that I know believes that his election is in the public interest.

Anyone, it seemed to me, would be better than Donald J. Trump!                          Continue reading

The Real Reason American Jews Won’t Be Voting for Trump


Trump vs Clinton

The Republican nominee’s race-based nationalism, his anti-Semitic innuendos, his position on Israel and his attacks on Muslims and immigrants are all deeply offensive. But that’s not what’s panicking most U.S. Jews.

Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie – Haaretz

It is distinctly dispiriting, in my view, to watch our national political life become a giant reality show. For that reason, I am relieved that the Republican National Convention is finally over. It subjected us to an even larger dose of what we have been experiencing since Donald J. Trump entered the presidential race. Many things happened at the convention, but a sober consideration of the issues was not among them.        Continue reading
