Long-term readers of this blog will know I’ve been a Trump sceptic right from the start.
It just always seemed so odd to me, how so many people believed that a bankrupt billionaire with very bad middot could literally morph into some sort of ‘moshiach’ just by taking office.
But of course, there were so many rabbis (ahem) explaining how Trump was a non-Jewish ‘Moshiach ben Yosef’; and there were so many dumb bloggers repeating that message – and even getting into fights with anyone who dared to question the idea – that I mostly stayed away from the subject of Trump.
Until 2019, which is when I started publically questioning the whole idea of America being some good, benevolent country, that only does goodness and righteousness in the world.
There was an interesting discussion over on Daisy’s blog, HERE, that got me thinking about the whole idea of ‘controlled opposition’, and how Trump, and other people we know, fit into that.
As we’ve stated here a few times, the swamp is controlling both sides of the debate, the argument, the political process, ‘the great divide’.
Whatever the subject is, you can be sure that the swamp has representatives on both sides of the fence, especially with the political system, but also when it comes to every great ‘debate’ or controversy.
How do we know who those ‘representatives’ are?
They never really get shut down.
And for those who want to tell me that Trump was ‘shut down’ on Twitter the last two weeks, the answer is: so what?
It’s a ‘deep cover’ tactic.
If they hadn’t shut Trump down for 2 weeks right at the end of his Presidency, then more and more people would have realised that nothing was going to change, anyway.
The swamp are masters of manipulation and human psychology.
They had half the free world ‘hanging out’ for Moshiach Trump to finally reveal himself, and perform the miracle to ‘clean up the swamp’.
And in the meantime….. those people weren’t doing anything else spiritually constructive, and they were totally living in a fantasy world that ‘Trump will fix it’.
And of course, Trump himself had no intention of ever ‘cleaning up the swamp’ because if he had, don’t you think he’d have made a tiny bit more progress, over the last 4 years?
What can we learn from all this?
#1 – taken from a recent prayer put out by Rabbi Eliezer Berland, is that POLITICS = AMALEK.
That applies to all politicians, everywhere.
It’s just one big circus, one big distraction, fooling the whole population into thinking that their vote, their decision, their ‘candidate’ is going to represent their interests, and enact the changes they want to see in their society and world.
Even if an individual politician isn’t totally corrupted (big if…) personally, they are still serving a system that is so corrupt, that no-one who isn’t corrupt will ever be allowed to obtain real power.
And that is true, wherever you happen to live in the world.
#2 – So many of those rabbis and ‘commentators’ are still misleading people, publically.
If these people had an ounce of humility, they would put their hands up, apologise, and make some serious teshuva for siphoning-off 4 years of Jewish yearning for geula, and Jewish prayers for Moshiach over to ‘Moshiach Trump’.
(And let’s not even talk about all the prayers, mitzvahs and Jewish yearning that’s been ‘siphoned off’ towards other false moshiachs, over the past few decades….)
And I’m willing to bet good money that once they get over this latest ‘disappointment’ and failed prediction, they will be back with another round of pointless distraction and fake Torah.
They aren’t going to retire any time soon, but you for sure can switch them off, and stop listening to all their distracting drivel.
#3 – The only way to get to the truth is to pray on it yourself, and stop looking for shortcuts.
How do you know I’m bona fide, and not ‘controlled opposition’?
At least, you don’t unless you are doing some soul-searching, and you are double-checking if the stuff I’m writing sits well with your soul, or not.
Is the stuff on this blog bringing you closer to Hashem, or pushing you further away?
When I bring advice and segulot from Rabbenu, or from Rav Berland, are those things helping you, calming you, reassuring you – or not?
These are big questions, they are important questions – and nobody can answer them, really, except you.
Stop looking for shortcuts and ‘rabbis’ and commentators to make important decisions for you.
It’s your life, in your hands, and YOU are the only one, really, who can know which path is best for you, and which path Hashem is taking you down.
And sometimes, those answers may be contrary to what you want to believe, or what you think sounds ‘right’.
I’ve lost count of the times I’ve gone against the tide, because I was prompted to in my hitbodedut.
Like, when I started unpicking all the ‘narcissists’ and narcissism in my own life, and started questioning whether it really was OK for parents to manipulate their children with disapproval, criticism and guilt trips.
Like, when I started pondering what on earth was going on with the bizarre coverage of what was happening with Rabbi Berland, way before I’d come close to him in any way, shape or form.
Like, more recently, researching all this stuff with Yonatan Eybshutz, the rasha, and Jacob Frank, and all the secret sabbateans still in our midst.
All of these things – and many more – usually led me to some very uncomfortable realisations, and some very hard choices.
That’s what it really means, to ‘leave the world of lies’.
It’s painful. It’s challenging. It means you have to change things – often really big things – and to make a lot of teshuva, and to accept that a lot has happened that was wrong and bad.
And that I myself have done so many things that are objectively wrong and bad.
The problem is not reaching that conclusion.
The real problem is when people trip over their own human frailties, and human failings, and middot malfunctions – and then try very hard to continue covering them up.
Which is why, paradoxically, ‘Moshiach Trump’ has the potential to still be useful, spiritually.
Trump acolytes – you now have a chance to make some real, sincere teshuva.
Instead of fuming about ‘evil Democrats’; instead of complaining that you were ‘misled by others’; instead of pretending that really, you knew it all along – come clean.
At least to Hashem, come clean.
Put you hand up, and admit that you believed Trump was ‘the answer’ because you never really took the time to check him out in your own personal conversation with God.
You never took the time to question the assumptions ‘Moshiach Trump’ was based on.
You didn’t spend even a second to ask yourself what your own biases were, and how they could be coloring your take on ‘Moshiach Trump’.
And as it is with ‘Moshiach Trump’, so it is with a whole bunch of other things in our lives, too.
Trump, and all the ‘rabbis’ (ahem…) and commentators supporting him led so many people away from real answers.
You want a real answer to the massive – and growing – problems in the world?
There is only one way you are going to get it.
Start talking to God, and start figuring out which of your own plentiful bad middot are continuing to prop up that yucky ‘world of lies’, that is doing so much damage to all of us.
And then, start asking God to show you who is really ‘true’ and ‘trustworthy’ in the world – and who isn’t.
And be prepared to be totally shocked by the answers.
When my husband and I started doing that in earnest, around 6 years ago, it blew our three main ‘rabbinic advisors’ out of the water, one after the another, over a period of just a few weeks.
To say it was traumatic is a massive understatement.
But that process (eventually…) led us to the Rav.
And since then, life has continued to just get better and easier.
But don’t take my word for it!!!!
Do the experiment yourself, there is simply no other way.
If you are honestly asking God to show you the truth, He will.
About all these ‘rabbis’.
About what you and me really need to work on, and really need to fix.
And that’s when geula will really start in earnest – at least for you – whatever else is going on in the world.
PS: I had a thought about evil Biden, too.
Remember that Haman was ‘elevated’ by being invited to Queen Esther’s feast just before he fell.
We are much closer to things turning around than it may look.
Don’t buy into all the fear porn!
They are cranking things up because they have a very short window left to ‘vaccinate’ as many people as they can. Hang on just a couple more weeks, and let’s see what’s going on then.
Haman toppled within 24 hours of being ‘elevated’ – and God’s salvation comes in the blink of an eye.
