10 Dec Speak Your Vues
I want people to know why I am becoming a “liberal/progressive” REPUBLICAN:
Too many national Democrats who are women come across to me as being
“anti-men” and as disliking men.
Because research indicates that by around the year 2030 over 50% of
the USA will be “non-white”, too many national Democrats are now going
overboard and are PANDERING in a big way to get the votes of all
minority groups including the future votes of legal and illegal
Too many national Democrats are no longer prioritizing the economic
and financial needs of our lower and middle class citizens as well as
our senior citizens and the role of the federal government in helping
these at-risk Americans as the national liberal-Democrats did in the
Too many national Democrats come across as being “anti-business.”
Too many national Democrats are fiscally irresponsible. We should not
try to pass new federal government social programs with the wonderful,
noble, and laudable intention of helping the lower and middle classes
when we have such a huge national debt and yearly federal budget
deficit unless we come up with new ways to pay for them.

has been great for the economy.
THE VUES WRITES ABOUT CBD
I have a great name for last week’s edition Pot Yisroel!
Editor’s Note: I “highly” recommend that name.
IMPEACHMENT PROCESS CONTINUES
I am writing this letter on the same day that Speaker Nancy Pelosi
announced that the House would pursue Articles of Impeachment against
President Trump. This is a day that every American knew would happen
when Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the House on January 3rd 2019.
There is a massive problem with this whole process, if this
impeachment was envied among Democrats for a while. This pre-existing
impeachment sentiment is in itself a factor that the Founding Fathers
in the Federalist Papers were worried about. Nancy Pelosi said that
Trump thinks he is above the Constitution, well Madam Speaker, it
actually says in Article 2 Section 4 that, “The President, Vice
President, and all civil Officers of the Unites States, shall be
removed from office on impeachment for, and CONVICTION of; treason,
bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” The meaning of the
word conviction is, “a formal declaration that someone is guilty of a
criminal offense, made by the verdict of a jury or the decision of a
judge in a court of law.” President Trump has not been convicted of
anything that is specifically delineated in the Constitution. Nancy
Pelosi is basing her sham on “hearsay witnesses” and “Constitutional
Experts”. First of all, hearsay is not evidence and every witness has
said they have no direct knowledge of a quid pro quo. President Trump
even told Ambassador Sondland that there should not be a quid pro quo
with Ukraine. That in itself should be the end of this, but no, the
Democrats a week later decide to force America to attend law school
for a day. The Democrats were able to get 3 “experts” and the
Republicans were able to get 1. This in itself isn’t fair in a process
that could impeach a sitting President of the USA. Regardless though,
all of the Democrats “experts” support impeachment. However, every
single one of them have donated thousands of dollars to Democrats. One
of these “experts” even said a few years ago that Trump should be
impeachment based on a tweet. On the other side, the Republican
witness, Johnathan Turley, a constitutionalists professor who did not
vote for President Trump, doesn’t support impeachment, was the only
expert who was actually bipartisan. Professor Turley, didn’t vote for
Trump and doesn’t support his policies. Turley said that Democrats
accusation that Trump is abusing power is exactly what they are doing
by supporting and voting for this impeachment. Speaker Pelosi said
that based on what the constitutionalists experts said, they “would
have no choice” but to impeach, is ridiculous. She obviously didn’t
listen to the only independent- minded expert testifying under oath.
Nancy Pelosi’s agenda is titled every week the “For the People
Agenda”, since when is invalidating 63 million people’s votes a “For
The People Agenda”? Independent support for impeachment has fallen 14
points, wake up Madam Speaker! Your gavel won’t be yours for long if
you continue these shams! If the proof against President Trump is so
compelling, then where is your bipartisan support for impeachment?!
Oops sorry we must have forgotten, the only bipartisan support is
against impeachment! It must be another Pelosi gaffe! On the same day
that Pelosi announces impeachment, polls from Rasmussen came out
showing that Trump has a 52% approval rating overall, and even a 26%
approval rating among Democrats and a 34% approval rating among
blacks! These are unprecedented numbers! Madam Speaker, I personally
do not remember a time that Republicans were 100% united, thank you,
Madam Speaker, for giving me one!!

Editor’s Note: The Senate will not impeach so therefore it is an
exercise in futility. Republicans win big in 2020.
There were two points mentioned in last week’s Vues that require clarification.
Regarding V’sen tal umatar, those who write that we begin on the
fourth or fifth, and those who say that it’s the fifth or sixth, are
actually saying the same thing. When you’re writing in Hebrew, and
you write the sixth, you mean Maariv the night before the sixth. When
you write in English, and write the fifth, you mean Maariv on the
night of the fifth. Either way, it referred to last Thursday night.
In the discussion of grains, regarding Brachos, Yashan and Matzoh, the
Rav equated gluten with the five grains. This is not precisely true.
Spelt and oats are gluten-free, but are among the five grains. In
fact Spelt Matzahs are readily available for those on gluten-free
Editor’s Note: Thanks for pointing it out.
DONUTS WITHOUT OIL
Last year, Organic Circle on Ave M advertised that they are selling
donuts & latkes without oil for Chanukah. My mother loved them! But,
doesn’t that defeat the entire reason why we have latkes & donuts on
Chanukah? I was under the impression that we eat oily foods the 8 days
of Chanukah to remember the neis. I’m sure it tastes great without the
oil because I enjoy everything from Organic Circle, but really? No
Editor’s Note: Maybe it is the new Lezecher oil doughnut or latke
Everyone obviously owns, & or uses a computer. My question is, what do
you prefer, a mac, or a pc? This should be fun.
Editor’s Note: Everyone is welcome to write in their preference and
the reason for it. I personally prefer a PC as I am used to it and am
not into music/art that the MAC is supposedly better.
Is there a problem of modesty when inviting divorced women to your
Shabbos table with your family? My wife keeps inviting them, but I am
not comfortable with them because they are too forward with something.
However, people shouldn’t spend Shabbos alone. Any ideas?
Editor’s Note: You may have an issue and you should discuss it with
your wife, but there is definitely no problem and if they become too
forward with their discussion you could always start saying divrei
CONSERVATIVE SHUL IN FLATBUSH
Every weekend we unfortunately read more and more stories about
attacks on frum yidden from dangerous youths. Now the leftists from a
Conservative synagogue are going to rent out space to a charter school
for “at risk youth.”
Many yeshivot tried to rent the space out but were denied without any reason!
Does anyone have a rational explanation for this?
Editor’s Note: No reason other than that the Shul in question are self
hating Jews who are kvelling the fact that they could stick it to the
frum people in Flatbush. My suggestion is to find out where all these
people come in from Scarsdale and the like and start renting in their
neighborhoods for frum yeshivas and make them frum.
PREPARING FOR PURIM
I thought of a theme for shalich manis and am curious to hear others’ opinions.
Fruits and vegetables and snackers
Editor’s Note: I decided I will not have a theme for Purim this year
so I am giving fruits and vegetables and snackers.
STOP THE HITCHHIKING
I see boys as young as 11 and 12 hitchhiking on the sides of the roads
all the time in my community. I can’t understand how this is
happening. Is this actually accepted in town? Do their parents tell
them it’s OK?
For anyone who thinks, “It’s no big deal,” here are some things for
you to ponder:
-Some of these children are getting in the car with strangers, how are
you to know this person is even Jewish and if he is, you don’t know
what he is capable of doing.
-These kids and bochurim are sometimes standing in dangerous roadways
at night without any reflectors sticking their hands out, (may I
remind you, that many of them are wearing their suits and are hardly
noticeable to the drivers).
-You have the people who go ahead to pick them up STOP in the middle
of the road to pull over, no signaling or anything, while the cars
behind them have to swerve to avoid a crash.
Please be careful, and arrange a carpool, it’s not worth the risk of
all the horrible things that can happen.
Editor’s Note: I agree wholeheartedly. There is too much anti-Semitism
out there to take chances.
SHOW SOME RESPECT
I could not believe I saw a cartoon that showed a state policeman
offering to tear up a ticket if the motorist paid him off.
My grandson happens to be a New York state trooper.
The hours are long, like a lot of jobs, but he and they don’t know
what he’ll face when he goes to work. Is your job like that?
We really need out troopers in this day and age. Don’t you agree?
I haven’t met anyone who says he or she wants to do it, have you?
I saw a film of the training. It was awful.
How would you like pepper spray in your face? My grandson had to do
that to a man once.
He’d kicked my grandson in the mouth.
I’m trying to stay on the straight and narrow.
Editor’s Note: We need to respect our Police Officers.
