Ari Bussel is dynamic supporter of Israel, Jewish, an American by birth and my Internet pal. Courageously Ari is a supporter of President Trump.
Ari sent me an email about his response to compatriots from the Jewish Press wondering where he stood after the Dems and the media had connected President Trump to creepy racist White Supremacists (who are typically Antisemitic) going full-Nazi at the Charlottesville Rumble.
I intended this to be a short intro to the email Ari Bussel sent to me, but I couldn’t help myself to my two-cents of the thugs on the Left which as it turned out has turned into something a bit longer than an intro. Ari’s email will be below (“President Trump – Chaos in the Administration”) my thoughts because all Americans should take stock in Ari’s thoughts and not just American Jews.
Here goes my two-cents
Most American Jews gravitate toward the Democratic Party politically meaning they support a Liberal (some say Progressive, I usually say Leftist) agenda for America and Israel. The American Jewish Liberal stance is mind-boggling to me since it will lead eventually to as much Antisemitism as that which the American White Supremacists openly display. AND the Liberal agenda supports the existence of a Palestinian State under the delusion that will bring peace for Israel and the West. The thought of a Palestinian State is delusional because the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians are devoted to Israel’s destruction.
With such Jew-hatred and anti-Israel animus, how do you think a Palestinian State will bring peace rather than a military confrontation capable of threatening Israel’s existence?
As Liberalism in America, look how the Left dominated media and the Dems in general NEVER vilify the Communist oriented Antifa movements and Communist oriented Black Lives Matter. Rather those groups blame all societal violence solely on the racist White Supremacists as if Antifa/BLT thugs are innocent of violence and are merely the victims of the White Supremacist racists.
Racism indeed is evil, but so is Marxist thuggery designed as sedition against the U.S. Constitution and traditional American values. Trust the end goal of all Marxism is a dictatorship in which the State tells how to think, live and survive. Violating the Marxist State agenda is a crime that history shows leads at best to oppression and at worst – DEATH.
Hitler’s Nazis killed 12 million civilians, 6 million of those were Jews. That is a horror that White Supremacists usually deny ever happened blinded by racism. But few realize the two most Communist nations of the former USSR (Stalin alone – best estimate 20 MILLION) and the still existent Red China’s (Mao Zedong best estimate – 65 MILLION) political genocide dwarf the genocide perpetrated under the guise of Aryan race superiority.
Progressive American Jews in their logical earnest to denounce White Supremacist racists are unwittingly being duped to ignore the Communist legacy behind Antifa and BLK.
The American Left is so determined to take down Trump that there is no thought on how such duplicity will end with the dismantling of the Constitution. In the long run, such a dismantling will affect American Liberty on all sides of the political spectrum. That is not good for anyone.
President Trump – Chaos in the Administration

I was asked if my opinion of the President, to whom I voted, has changed.
Do I criticize what he has said (or the manner in which he has said it, or the tone or the volume or anything else that might sound as “I accuse!”)?
These were part of a list of questions by the Jewish Journal, as we are salivating at the thought that here comes the downfall of the President! L’Chaim!
“Time to Gloat – We have told you so?” – Not Really!
It is Time to Unite and Support the President!
There is a lot of chaos in the White House, and President Trump is learning, adjusting and trying to run the country, while he has been given not an iota of patience or civility, not a chance to prove his capabilities or his ability to be a good President.
A President who demands absolute loyalty, has he shown the same to the people surrounding him? That I do not know, as I am not privy to the inner circles of the Administration. But his devotion to the USA is complete, and he is trying to do the best for the country.
Against fierce opposition and challenges, not by the Chinese or the Russians, Iran or Daesh – none of whom sits idly – but by a country divided, a country that is refusing to allow the President to lead it, President Trump is now vilified as the greatest satan, the actual fulfillment of imaginary fears and baseless accusations.
Half the country is disappointed, as was the other half eight and four years ago. But the previous disappointment did not lead to riots in the streets and to distraught students and faculty on campuses requiring mental health intervention, while then President Obama refused to call any terrorist attack by its name and, rather than try to heal, pointed an accusing finger at our first responders causing havoc and mayhem directed toward police officers.
The current disappointment is of those spoiled who cannot admit a loss, for they cannot – by definition – lose. It stands contrary to the laws of nature. So their anger festers and looks for outlets to release all the pus that has accumulated. Lacking such an outlet, the body will keep poisoning itself, and that is what we are seeing now: a President being judged according to different standards than ever before, tailored-made to attack only one, the most-horrible President Trump!
Let us focus! If Barcelona has not been a sharp-enough reminder, coming days surely will. A House Divided We Fall, and we cannot afford to be divided at this time.
Those who support Israel and/or are involved in Jewish communal life and organizations have witnessed a coordinated attack against the President. “He did not say enough.” “He supports extremism.” “He is fulfilling everything we said about him.” It is a feeling of self-vindication, self-righteousness and self-indignation.
Has President Trump been that bad for America? He may not be a Kennedy or a Clinton, or even (I dare say not) a Bush, but he was duly elected to carry out the job of running the country. It is time to unite and respect the Office of the President, Democrats and Republicans alike, for else, our own betrayal will come to haunt us.
As for the latest accusations, whatever the President would have said would not have satisfied some people, and the American Jewish leadership, exactly those who vocally and fiercely fought against his being elected, will stop at nothing.
The previous open door and listening ear at the White House is not there for them anymore, and the Jews cannot buy their way in, for the President needs not their money and would rather listen to common sense and do his own evaluation. Suddenly they feel powerless, for the obsession with the “Occupation” and the “Two State Solution” comes to a head-on collision with reality: Israel craves for a true and lasting peace, while her enemies want her complete and utter destruction.
The Arabs understand this. Israelis understand this. But American Jews know better. Except, they no longer have an administration blindly at their service.
American Jewry and its leadership took wrong stands in the past, most notoriously during WWII. In recent years, American Jewry and its leadership have turned away from Israel, trying to force her to do what is bad for Israel, supporting BDS (although largely stopping short of calling for an outright boycott of Israel, her institutions and products) and overall utilizing its influence to advance an agenda that is no longer tied to Israel.
It will all come back to haunt us, for we must remember: We are a tiny minority in this country, and the general established consensus is already that the Jews Control the World (from business to finances to entertainment to government). Let us reduce the rhetoric against the President of the United States, for it will end up harming us in the long run.
The blame game is very effective, and changes are abrupt. What is currently being utilized against President Trump will easily change course, and Jews have always been a most convenient scapegoat. All that will have to be done is point the finger at us – American Jewry – and the hatred that is already started to boil will explode like a volcano.

An American by birth, to a family that has emigrated to the USA a century ago, I have been a registered Republican since I was first able to vote. Previous generations in our family were Democrats, but the party is no longer what it was last century.
