If the American people are getting along, there is no victim base for the Democrat Party- who needs people to hate each other so they can keep a revolutionary mindset going so that angry people are pointed at grabbing up government power. That is not enlightened behavior. Angry Marxist people lack the ability to reason with others and the consequences of having them in power is disharmony.
While President Trump greatly impacted the Jewish community, the recent rise in hated aimed at Christians by some Jews is scary and displaced- especially since Jews and Christians share so much solid foundation with each other, and have the potential to repair this beautiful Republic through reason.
Judeo-Christian is a phrase that is generally used to describe the fact that Both faiths affirm one God, prize the covenant between God and his people, and value the dignity of human life. The similarities are said to be the basis of Western Civilization, and the Judeo-Christian tradition invokes shared values and connected fates. as the foundation of Western Civilization.
We can’t do ‘Liberty’ without each other- in other words.
Think about how we are connected by Jehova: Je·ho·vah. (jĭ-hō′və) n. God, especially in Christian translations of the Hebrew Scriptures. [Blend of the letters of the Tetragrammaton and, with modification, the vowels of Adonai.]
But those foundations are being smashed in the public square and discredited so that people can not work together to find compromise and balance, so Western Civilization hangs in the balance.
William Barr made some really interesting comments recently about the demise of Western Civilization and how everyone should be concerned about its erosion in American society.
The Daily Wire wrote about Barr’s comments:
“Western civilization faces its deepest crisis since the resurrection of Jesus Christ according to former U.S. Attorney General William Barr told a Christian conference in Chicago, Illinois, last weekend.
“That’s because our whole civilization is based on the Judeo-Christian tradition, and that tradition is under sustained attack by increasingly militant secular forces,” Barr said. Among such forces, Barr said, were the many so-called “progressives.”
They are militant! As in – ‘at war’ with us.
The American people could be so united on these issues and living peaceful prosperous lives- but we are under attack by the radical left- who hates both Christians and Jews and wants chaos. They really hate reason- and they are unenlightened.
Consider these comments by Godless Joy Behar about the recent overturning of Roe V. Wade.
Raised Catholic, Behar said in interviews that she now identifies as agnostic:
Joy Behar: “We are in a Theocracy right now.”

But what great country has ever been agnostic? None.
First of lets talk about laws. We need some laws for a civil society- esp one that is over 360,000,000 different people.
The left likes to make their laws up based upon their feelings at the time- and that gives people in government power a lot of ‘wiggle room’ to create drama and chaos.
On the other hand the right likes to have well established laws based on something- that provides law and order.
The left and the right do not see eye to eye obviously. The laws of this country have to come from somewhere- and that is the foundation of the battle between left and right.
Enter Western Civilization- with Judeo Christian roots- when Jews and Christians get together and find common ground for agreement. We need to get back there.
In fact the very foundation of the United States of America is called Juedo Christian- and there is evidence in our historical places that Jews and Christians were in this fight for liberty and freedom togehter- under one umbrella.
Consider this letter from Rabbi Meir Soloveichik:
As we approach July 4th weekend, I thought to share with you some of my writing about the American idea and the role that Jewish ideas played in the Founding.
In the most recent issue of Commentary, I described the Hebraic origins of the Liberty Bell, and what they tell us about the United States; the article can be read here. In a much earlier issue of Commentary, I described a Jewish wedding that took place in Philadelphia in 1787, and what that wedding helps us understand about the respective roles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution in the story of America.
Finally, I pondered in the Wall Street Journal two biblically inspired suggestions by the Founders for the seal of the United States, and what they tell us about the meaning of our July 4th celebration.
Wishing you a meaningful and joyous Fourth of July,
Further- the importance of our founding is evidenced in Savanagh Georgia according to one historian who wrote about the nations leading founder, President George Washington and his view that Jews and Christians were intertwined. The story goes:
A hand-written letter was delivered to President George Washington: “Sir, We have long been anxious of congratulating you on your appointment by unanimous approbation to the Presidential dignity of this country, and of testifying our unbounded confidence in your integrity and unblemished virtue.” It goes on:
Your unexampled liberality and extensive philanthropy have dispelled that cloud of bigotry and superstition which has long, as a veil, shaded religion—unrivetted the fetters of enthusiasm—enfranchised us with all the privileges and immunities of free citizens, and initiated us into the grand mass of legislative mechanism. By example you have taught us to endure the ravages of war with manly fortitude, and to enjoy the blessings of peace with reverence to the Deity, and benignity and love to our fellow-creatures.
On June 14, 1790, President Washington wrote the congregation in return.
I thank you with great sincerity for your congratulations on my appointment to the office, which I have the honor to hold by the unanimous choice of my fellow-citizens: and especially for the expressions which you are pleased to use in testifying the confidence that is reposed in me by your congregation.
He went on to discuss his views of Americans.
I rejoice that a spirit of liberality and philanthropy is much more prevalent than it formerly was among the enlightened nations of the earth; and that your brethren will benefit thereby in proportion as it shall become still more extensive. Happily the people of the United States of America have, in many instances, exhibited examples worthy of imitation—The salutary influence of which will doubtless extend much farther, if gratefully enjoying those blessings of peace which (under favor of Heaven) have been obtained by fortitude in war, they shall conduct themselves with reverence to the Deity, and charity towards their fellow-creatures.
Finally, he offers his view of the role of Jews in the United States:
May the same wonder-working Deity, who long since delivering the Hebrews from their Egyptian Oppressors planted them in the promised land—whose providential agency has lately been conspicuous in establishing these United States as an independent nation—still continue to water them with the dews of Heaven and to make the inhabitants of every denomination participate in the temporal and spiritual blessings of that people whose God is Jehovah.
Several things are important in this largely forgotten letter.
The letter to the Jews of Savannah predates the much more famous letter that Washington sent to the Jews of Newport later that summer. The fact that he took the time to send two such letters to a Jewish community that numbered in the low thousands is a mark of how seriously he took the presence of minority religions.
Washington clearly believes the United States came into being as a result of “providential agency” by the “wonder-working Deith” who “has lately been conspicuous in establishing these United States as an independent nation.”
He exhibited none of the well-known hostility to Jews that many Enlightenment leaders did.
He offered a passionate vision for America as a place where “inhabitants of every denomination participate in the temporal and spiritual blessings of that people whose God is Jehovah.”
But some people want to divide us and ignore that unity.
What is at issue now? According to The Foward a recent ruling that prayer should be allowed at school, is a problem for him, a Jew- but why?:
“The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 Monday that a public school’s football coach could pray on the field after games. The three liberal justices dissented, arguing that allowing a government employee to lead students in Christian prayer violated the separation of church and state and created pressure for students to pray.
Many Jewish groups warned that the ruling would infringe on the rights of non-Chrisitan public school students. The Anti-Defamation League said it was “deeply disturbed” by the decision and that it “will have a negative impact in particular on students of marginalized faiths and non-religious students.” Other critics wondered if the court would have ruled similarly had the coach been Jewish or Muslim.

Why has the author sided against Christians? Who does it help to keep Jews and Christians divided? It helps the left- the progressive Communist left.
Judiasism is not a marginalized faith, it is the first part of “Juedo Christian”. The ADL overlooks that fact in favor of being a victim of the United States of America- when in fact Jews are the heroes of the United States of America. They have been here since before the beginning and fought for this country’s founding.
Jews and Christians agree with each other on prayer and on life. We heard from the lapdog media that Jews were upset about the overturning of 50 year ruling. Not all Jews, let’s remember.
Even in the recent ruling of overturning Roe V. Wade, many Christians and Jews agreed on the importance of life. Consider this document that the ADL and lapdog media have ignored:
AMICUS CURIAE BRIEF OF JEWISH PRO-LIFE FOUNDATION, THE COALITION FOR JEWISH VALUES, RABBI YAKOV DAVID COHEN, RABBI CHANANYA WEISSMAN, AND BONNIE CHERNIN, (PRESIDENT, JEWISH LIFE LEAGUE) ON THE MERITS IN SUPPORT OF PETITIONERS:
“JUDAISM IS THE ORIGINAL PRO-LIFE RELIGION. IT WAS THE FIRST RELIGION IN HUMAN HISTORY TO SANCTIFY HUMAN LIFE FROM CONCEPTION TO NATURAL DEATH AND TO PROHIBIT CHILD SACRIFICE.”
Isn’t that what America is built on? The sanctity of human life? It is time to stop letting the left divide this beautiful Republic and get back to one nation under Jehova.
