I am taking an unusual break from my campaigning here in Israel for the elections on September 17th on behalf of the new Bible Bloc party of Jews and Christians.
When President Trump described the left-wing Jews as either ignorant or disloyal, I watched as they erupted in self-righteous chest pounding . Let me set the record straight as I understand it.
For the eight years of the Obama administration, I spent much time and effort with the churches and Tea Party groups to explain the threat of the Islamic agenda globally and in America to suppress the democractic systems of all Western countries.
When time came for Q & A, inevitably the first question was, “Why do you Jews always vote for the Democrats? We can’t understand it!”
So I explain it as follows: Jews came to America from Day 1 and settled in such places as Providence, RI, Charleston, SC, Savannah, GA and New Amsterdam (NY.). With the American Revolutionary War, Jews fought patriotically alongside other revolutionaries. On Yom Kippur, 1777, General George Washington came to the Jews of Philadelphia saying, “The revolution is over. We are bankrupt. If you Jews don’t go home and bring us your gold, the British will hang all of us.” So the Jews went home on their holiest day, and brought 30 million dollars of gold bullion from that time and saved the revolution.
On Christmas, 1777, hundreds of Jews stood bivouac so Christians could pray the Christmas services and also protect Valley Forge from the British forces.
In 1803, “From the Halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli” Jewish Commodore Uriah P. Levi led the US Navy to defeat the Barbary Pirates.
In the American Civil War there Jewish soldiers in both the Confederacy as well as the Union armies.
So where are all these Jews today in 2019? I told the people in the audience: “You are those Jews.” We intermarried with the White Anglo-Saxon Protestant majority and became Christians. America never killed its Jews nor persecuted them like in Europe.
So who votes Democrat? Today’s Jews in America are recent newcomers from over the last 100 years. They suffered from the Inquisition, pogroms, expulsions and Holocaust. For them Christianity was considered the enemy. American Jews have no idea who the American Christians are today. They are the most wonderful people on Earth, they love the Jews and Israel.
And yet the liberal Jews hate them and prefer to bond with minorities that hate us. So when President Trump refers to ignorance, yes, Jews are ignorant and need to go to church and read the New Testament to be able to get it. And I am not a Christian but I go to churches of all denominations and read the New Testament, and I love the Christians just as they love me and my people.
Jews have a tendency also to cosmopolitanism, universalism, and humanism first and only which does not tolerate patriotism and nationalism which the Christian right and I embrace.
Disloyalty is refusing to get educated in what the majority of America believes in and supporting those values that made America great. So we Jews in our own way bring upon ourselves the animosity of our Christian neighbors and in Europe’s case persecution and Holocaust.
If the Jews don’t get a hold of themselves, the history of Holocausts and persecutions will repeat itself in America as well. Either there will be Holocausts in the worst case scenario, or annihilation of the Jewish people through assismilation and intermarriage. Maybe God almighty wants the Jews to leave America and move to Israel.
Stop blaming President Trump for telling the truth as it is and sharing from the heart of America’s great people.

Expose #2: August 22nd, 2019 via Dennis Avi Lipkin:
Further to yesterday’s Expose #1 about President Trump’s criticism of Democrat Jewish voters being either ignorant or disloyal, I wanted to add another expose describing another situation the Jews have found themselves in over the last 2,000 years leading up to today.
At age 70, a still aspiring historian, I try to look at both sides of every coin to understand historical possibilities without judging one side or another. The Roman defeat of the Judeans in 70AD (CE) and 135 AD (CE) and their consequent expulsions brought about a great persecution of Jewish people and communities throughout the Roman Empire which at that time hovered around 10% Jewish population throughout the Roman Empire. And of course, there was the calumny that the Jews killed Jesus Christ, something Pope John rejected finally with Vatican II in 1962.
When Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire, Jewish people were greatly persecuted throughout the Empire. With the advent of the Mohammed and the Arab invasions of Europe, many Jews by and large saw their “cousins” as liberators. “The enemy of my enemy is my ally,” and so, the Arabs who were the enemies of the Catholics, were now the allies of the Jews and were seen by the Jews as liberators and saviors in Spain, for example. This alliance continued from 721 until 1492, almost 760 years of Judeo-Islamic alliance in the Iberian Peninsula. When the Moslems were finally expelled in 1492 from Granada, the last Jews in Spain had to leave together with their erstwhile Moslem allies.
Spain enjoyed its “Golden Age” during this time. After Turkey willingly took in the Jewish and Moslem refugees, the Turkish Empire also experienced its “Golden Age” reaching the gates of Vienna. Jews played major roles in the administration of the Ottoman Empire. My wife, Rachel, is a descendant of Jews who fled Spain to Morocco and Turkey and finally Egypt, refusing to abandon the Jewish faith and convert to Catholicism in Spain.
Now I want to shift over to another area of the Roman Empire, Switzerland and the Rhine Valley. Many Judeans were taken out of the Land of Israel and exiled over the Alps by the Romans. Yiddish is a Judaized version of Swiss German from many centuries ago. Yiddish legal documents from 1000 AD (CE) were found in the Cairo Geniza. And so much of the development of Switzerland northward along the Rhine Valley into Holland and Germany happened because of the Jewish presence. Jews were literate and knew mathematics and were a boon to that area.
My mother’s side of the family was brought over from Germany to Poland to build the walls of Warsaw in the 1600’s.We were knighted by the King of Poland and given the Slavic name “Kamien” or stone because of the stones of the walls of Warsaw. Jews played a major role in administering the Polish Empire at that time from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea. Unfortunately, Jewish people also served as administrators and tax collectors for the King of Poland, which made them hated by all the nations subjugated by the King of Poland including Lithanians, Russians and Ukrainians.
In 1648, Cmielnicki, the George Washington of the Ukrainian national movement, slaughtered 1/3 of the Jewish people of the world at that time who lived in the Ukraine, because they and the Polish nobility and Catholic priests were hated because of the Polish rule over the Ukrainians. The Polish nobility and Catholic priests were also slaughtered by the Ukrainians.
Just to the south, in the Black Sea area, part of the Turkish Empire, as well as in the Balkans, the Jews were also seen by the Ukrainians just to the north as enemies because of our role in administering the Ottoman Moslem government. So that was the double wammy in which the Jews found themselves.
After the Polish Kingdom was split up between Russia, Germany and Austria, we became hated also in those countries for being allies of the losing side, Poland.
Without oversimplifying too much, many Jews abandoned the Jewish religion, and Communism, Socialism, and Marxism became the new religion. If God was going to punish us so much for being the “Chosen People,” better to abolish God to get rid of the curse of being the Chosen People, so they thought.
Just as Christians believe in the One New Man in Christ (Ephesians), these Marxists, Socialists and Communists believed in “One New Man in Marx”. Religion, described by Lenin as the “Opiate of the Masses,” had to be totally destroyed. Jews flocked to this religion because of their anger with God and their universalistic, humanistic desire for a perfect world where there would be no more God-engendered hatred amongst the nations because of “God’s religions.”
With the Bolshevik Revolution, Stalin with the help of many Jewish commissars annihilated up to 20-30 million Russians and Ukrainians before Stalin started killing the Jews as well.
And many of these Jews eventually fled to the US to avoid the horrors of the Catholics, Nazis, Polish, Ukrainians and Russians to breath the free air of America. But American Christians who only blessed their Jews, were seen by these new Jewish immigrants as an extension of the hated European Christians. And that’s why the Jews vote for the Democratic Party. The Republican Party is seen as merely an extension of European Christian hatred, even the though American Christians are not only our best friends but our only friends. I have discovered this after speaking in over a 1,000 churches and working with these Christians for 30 years.
And the Democratic Party President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, looked the other way in World War II when Adolph Hitler killed six million Jews. Remember the St. Louis refugee ship of May 1939, turned away by Roosevelt.
So, yes, Democratic Party Jews are ignorant and thus they become disloyal by supporting anti-God, anti-Christian, and anti-patriotic Americans who love us Jews in America and worldwide. We Jews bring tragedies upon ourselves as a nation by the historically aligning with the wrong side and may I say, the losing side.
Excellent historical perspective of the Jews that I did not know.
