  • Vanity: The Jewish Case for Donald J. Trump

    Much has been made about Jewish Republicans and their apparent hesitance for Trump, as well as the aggregate set of Jewish voters. The liberal media has done much to demonize Trump with them, by pointing out a few rogue Twitter trolls, who may or may not be DNC/Crooked Hillary shills. Here's the truth: Donald J. Trump will prevent a Europe-like scenario of Muslim immigration to the US. That Europe-like scenario is the sheer amount of Jews fleeing the continent because Muslim anti-Semitism has increased with the Islam population, and leftist and formerly center-left parties have courted the Muslim vote with...

    JTA - Donald Trumps campaign for the presidency rolled out its Israel Advisory Committee last week -- no one noticed. Blame the unrelenting news cycle, if you will: July 14 was the day of the hideous mass killing in Nice, France. But also, his Israel Advisory Committee consists of exactly three Jews, including two who work for him. Not much news here, move along. Trumps unusual campaign extends to its Jewish outreach, or rather his lack of Jewish outreach resembling anything that has come under that rubric in other campaigns. Campaigns routinely distribute talking points to Jewish supporters and cultivate...

    The Obama administration through its National Security Council passed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Ploughshares Fund, an NGO that favors allowing Iran to have nuclear weapons. And the Ploughshares Fund paid J Street over $500,000 to push its agenda last summer. That's what came out over this past weekend. A group the White House recently identified as a key surrogate in selling the Iran nuclear deal gave liberal Jewish lobbying organization J street $576,500 to advocate for the deal. ...

Just like my Republican friends are shocked that so many fellow Republicans have voted for him. Why the surprise, though? Is it at all surprising that a rightward-tilting, nationalistic, often-anti-Muslim pep rally of 18,000 people (many paid to be there by a handful of billionaires) would applaud a rightward-tilting, nationalistic, often-anti-Muslim leader of pep rallies? The weirdest shock of all, though, came from AIPAC itself, whose leader apologized this morning for Trumps having insulted President Obama. Choking back tears,...

    The mood of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at the Gaylord Convention Center in the National Harbor outside Washington, D.C., was somber. There was no electricity in the ballroom, no sign of excitement in what should be a good election year for Republicans after eight years of President Barack Obama occupying the White House. Instead, the speakers on stage, as well as the many young activists roaming the hallways, were defensive. Defiant to strike a strong conservative tone in an election season that has been dominated by vulgar language and petty personal attacks, there was a sense of...

Worried that Iran might still develop a nuclear weapon despite the accord announced Thursday, the Jewish leaders say they feel torn between an Obama administration that has pressed hard for a deal and an Israeli government that has repeatedly warned that Iran is a grave threat to the Jewish state and...

Sixty-one percent may seem high, compared to 31 percent of the general public who identify as Democrats, but thats a 3 percent dip from 2013, and a huge drop from 2008, when 71 percent of Jews said they were Democrats.

While it is impossible – and politically perilous – to attempt to take any American demographic group and treat them as a homogenous block, on the major issues of the day one would think that the GOP would be a natural fit for the majority of American Jews. When you look, in particular, at which party provides the staunchest support for Israel, there really is no comparison. A host of other topics appear to be a good fit as...

For swing voters, the answer is usually the state of the economy. For most, however, voting patterns are surprisingly fixed. People tend to vote for one party consistently over time. For Jewish American voters, the party of choice has been the Democratic party. Conservatives have been trying to crack the code for a number of years on how to get Jewish voters over to their side.

    Coach is Right ^ | 12/17/12 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Throughout the recent presidential campaign people like Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Ira Forman had to work overtime to cover up Barack Obamas hostility toward Israel. They knew their co-religionists were weary of supporting a man who had so often actually gone out of his way to show his contempt for the Jewish State only democracy in the Middle East. There was the sharp snub of Israels Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Obamas cozy relationship with Black clergy who at times foamed at their mouth with open hatred for Israel. Now that he is safely reelected Obama has done nothing...

    The Republican share of the Jewish vote jumped nationally in the presidential election from 22 percent to 32 percent, an increase of almost 50 percent, Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, tells Newsmax. Based on an exit poll of 1,000 Jewish voters commissioned by the group, Brooks says the results show that Republicans have gained market share among Jewish voters in five of the last six national elections. The 10-point gain in the last election is the largest since 1972. Brooks takes issue with a poll commissioned by the left-leaning, pro-Israel organization J Street. That poll found...

    The Pseudo-Jews strike again. Another knife in the back. Et tu, Shlomo ? Now, before I get myself in some hot water and get charged with a hate crime or something, I'm going to come right out and say it. I'm Jewish. I eat bagels and lox like it's going out of style. I cry like a baby every time I watch Schindler's List. I call my mother every chance I get, despite the fact that I'm wracked with guilt for hours afterword. I spend every Passover at my Aunt Esther's house and make small talk with relatives I can't...

    In his re-election victory, Democrat Barack Obama narrowly defeated Republican Mitt Romney in the national popular vote (50% to 48%)1. Obamas margin of victory was much smaller than in 2008 when he defeated John McCain by a 53% to 46% margin, and he lost ground among white evangelical Protestants and white Catholics. But the basic religious contours of the 2012 electorate resemble recent elections traditionally Republican groups such as white evangelicals and weekly churchgoers strongly backed Romney, while traditionally Democratic groups such as black Protestants, Hispanic Catholics, Jews and the religiously unaffiliated backed Obama by large margins.

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 28/10/12 | Rachel Hirshfeld
    In an interview with NBC News late last week, President Barack Obama attempted to justify why he has not visited Israel since becoming president. "The truth of the matter is, there are a number of countries I didn't visit, Obama said. I visited Israel just a couple of months before I was president." "Given how important I think the situation in the Middle East is and our partnership with Israel, which is stronger than its ever been, when I go to Israel, I want to make sure that we are actually moving something forward, the president continued. While Obama did...

    There is a simple answer to the question When will Jews who are liberal leave the Democratic Party and join the Republican Party? And the answer is: When they care more about the survival of the State of Israel than they do about abortion and gay rights. In a new Pew Research Center poll conducted this month, the study shows that it was bad enough when members of both parties were asked whether the United States is too supportive of Israel; twice as many Democrats agreed; 25% to 13%. But the real shocker was another question: Do you think the...

    The Chicago Jewish Star an independent twice-monthly general interest Jewish newspaper wrote an editorial endorsing Governor Romney over their Hometown President Barack Obama. It is not only that Mr. Obama thus deserves to be a one-term proposition; it is that Mr. Romney is simply the better bet for our country. writes the Chicago Jewish Star. The Following are excerpts of the editorial: In many ways this is still a post-9/11 world. The threat of Islamic terror, a depressed and failing economy, an unsure future for a troubled healthcare system, a genocidal-spewing Iran, an unbalanced Middle East- these are some of...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/18/12 | Stella Paul
    "Two Jews, three opinions" goes the famous joke. And every day, more of those opinions turn pro-Romney, as American Jews increasingly reject the collapsing presidency of Barack Hussein Obama. Romney's surging poll numbers in the crucial state of Florida reflect his growing success with Bubbie Molly and her unemployed grandson Adam, who both thought their right hand would wither if it ever pulled the lever for a Republican. The signs and portents are everywhere, beginning with the special election of a Republican in Anthony Weiner's heavily Jewish, New York congressional district one year ago. Now a startling new poll even...

    The Other McCain ^ | October 15, 2012 | Robert Stacy McCain
    Why is Obama still leading Mitt Romney in Ohio, but trailing in Florida? This puzzle might be explained by the early blitz of attack ads the Obama campaign laid down against Romney in Ohio back in May and June, which created a sort of opinion deficit that Romney has had to try to make up during the past four months. Yet Obama also hit Mitt early in Florida, and Romney has bounced back pretty strong there in the past two weeks. Is it Libya? And is it possible that the deadly Bungle in Benghazi has raised concerns about the administrations...
