STATEMENT FROM SIMCHA FELDER
Dear Vues Master:
“I have supported the decriminalization of marijuana for many of the social reasons this bill has been forwarded today. However, the world is currently battling a pandemic that attacks the lungs and the science available supports the dangers of inhaling substances. At a time when we are still battling the devastating effects of the drug crisis, also well documented, is the danger of marijuana as a gateway drug. I have always maintained that our children are our most precious resource and many of them will see such broad legalization as sanctioning its safety. After much thought and discussion with constituents these concerns led me to vote NO on this bill,” said Senator Felder.
Vues Master’s Note: The criminal politicians themselves were high on drugs when they legalized it!
THE CONTROLLING ELITE
Dear Vues Master:
Positive developments in science, technology, and other areas tend to create a pattern to conform to such discoveries. Many times the developments are on a major scale, extremely positive. However, one of the victims of such positive developments is the ability to ask a question. It is human nature when a time of goodwill has taken place, that when one questions something fundamental about the discovery, the human impulse from most will be to ridicule and ignore the concerns of the questionnaire. We are living in such times due to the development of the COVID-19 vaccine. As a result of the obvious recognized benefits of this vaccine, there has been an unfortunate impulse to push back on questions about taking the vaccine in certain circumstances. Congressman Thomas Massie recently shared a scientific study that has been public knowledge since late January 2021 showing that for those that already had COVID, the vaccine is not efficient. Additionally, data from the American Red Cross estimates that 1/3 of Americans have antibodies against COVID. Estimates have ranged between 6-8 months of the life of antibodies which is a similar lifespan of the COVID vaccines. Also, recently the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases concluded a study showing that T-Cells could be a very effective tool against Covid, including strong variants. Many Americans especially younger Americans, according to NBC polling are hesitant as of now to receive a vaccine. Many label such people as anti-vaxxers when in truth it could be because they have one of the above conditions. Of course, some anti-vaxxers exist, but to label, an entire group in such a way doesn’t seem fair. Recently doctors like Dr. Fauci and others have promoted the idea that for life to return to normal there must be herd immunity to a level of 85-90%. Instead of showing actual data of a pattern of serious cases of reinfections or counter-data showing antibodies and T-Cells not being effective against COVID if one doesn’t get the vaccine as well, the medical and political elite are lecturing Americans on how they should run their lives. At the same time, the medical hierarchy is saying that people should continue to wear masks even after receiving a vaccine. This advice would seem logical if data showing a pattern of serious and deadly cases of reinfections in a non-herd immunity reality, however as of now, no data has been presented. Instead, we have been told to wear the mask and be quiet. At the time that the same medical and political elite are pushing for all to receive a vaccine irrespective of individual circumstances, the policies they are pushing post-vaccine inoculation are only making the vaccine less attractive for those who were already hesitant. If one is hesitant to receive a vaccine since he has antibodies but is considering getting one as everyone is pushing him to get one, does one think he will be more convinced to get one when policies like wearing masks after vaccinations or only small and not large crowds with vaccinated people, are pushed?! Of course not!! This nation is coming out from a difficult year. It has been even more difficult with the arbitrary mandates being pushed, while independent situations being ignored. As Americans, it is incumbent upon us that if we want the free society that we once lived in, we have to rise finally against this elite class who think they can continue to control us arbitrarily.
Sincerely, D S G
Vues Master’s Note: Covid 19 had a major impact. It made the regular person into a robot who can’t and is not allowed to think for himself. In short the biggest long term effect of Covid is that it took away common sense!
AVRAHAM FRIED & YAAKOV SHWEKEY CONCERT
Dear Vues Master:
The Matzoh Fund-FeedOur- Brothers.org I definitely enjoyed my Simchas Yom Tov on Chol Hamoed watching the Free Concert seeing Avraham Fried singing together with Yaakov Schweky V”HI SHAMDAH by Yonatan Rezel. What a duet with both pouring out their heart & Neshama as they harmonized to each other; V’Hakodosh Baruch Hu Matzileinu M’YADAM! This has to be one of the nicest songs ever composed and sung. Yaakov Schweky sang; This Is Your Time, while Avraham Fried sang; B’Esh U’Vamayim-Am Yisroel Chai. Nachum Segal was the MC. This was directed by Eli Gerstner-EG Productions and Produced by Allan & Ari Hirsch from the Jewish Vues sponsoring the Matzah Fund- FeedOurBrothers.org to donate online or call 518 323 0376 Campaign # ID 673. This helps people with food packages for Yom Tov; Wine, Matzah, Eggs, Potatoes, Fruit & Vegetables, Chicken, meat, oranges, onions etc. The Free Concert was live streamed by Chananya Kramer from Kol Rom Video. Avraham Fried belted out; “UT UT UT Hineh Moshiach Ba” and one of my favorites; Ribon Haolamim -Yaddati Yaddati Yadaati. Avremel also sang one of his first hit songs composed by Rabbi Baruch Chait; Kel Ha’doos and Mein Habrochos-Keil Haodoas. Yaakov Schweky sang his hit song from Yitzy Waldner EISH! The orchestra was directe3d and arranged by Nochi Krohn who plays the keyboard like Yaaron Gershovsky. Eli Gersner composed and sang a beautiful videoed song together with Baruch Levine and Avraham fried; Time to Rise – sponsored by The Chizuk project. The YBC choir performed with Yossie Neuman directing the choir and Eli Gerstner composing such songs as; V’havta-Amar Rav Akiva-Kol Hamispallel- Mi Komocha-Hashem E’chad U’Shmo Echod-Ashrei Yoshvei. They dance and sing with stunning soloist especially their hit song classic; Daddy Come Home-Stay with Me-Let me Hold Your Hand-Send My daddy Home-I’m Not Letting Go-Daddy Please Come Home!

Chazak-Chazak-V’Nischazek Be Strong Ad Bias Goel Chazak, and L’Benyomin Amar Yedid Hashem Yishkon L’vetach Olam. Mutty Engel produced the Videos. JCN-Chaim Chernoff was thanked along with Artscroll studios for helping to produce and arrange such an event. Etan Van shot the Matzah Fund Videos where the people in Israel thank everyone profusely saying that someone cares and loves you all. Todaah Rabbah. Yaakov Schweky sang his beautiful song We Are A Miracle referring to Klal Yisroel and Sholom Ribashkin. I read how Yaakov Schweky was quarantined with his family last Pessach like all of us but was so uplifted hearing everyone sing that mega hit V’Hi Sh’amda. In the Story behind the Song, he tells how he and Yochi Briskman met with Yonaton Rezel, and asked him before they left; “Do you have any Shelf Songs? He then showed them and played for them V’Hi Sh’Amda, to which Shweky told Yochi; “Buy It’! WOW! Naftali Schnitzler offered a singer a song composed by Bleier which the singer turned down, since it was too long and had too many complex words. Avraham Fried took it & made it the great hit YADDATI WOW!
Vues Master’s Note: Thanks! People can still donate to this worthy cause!
Dear Vues Master:
I am utterly disappointed. Why do we feel the need to travel to Orlando for Pesach? What is wrong with Pesach in NY?
Vues Master’s Note: What do you mean it is part of Golus? We are supposed to feel as if we went to Mitzrayim. Packing to Orlando and travelling is mamesh a Golus!
Dear Vues Master: How come the airlines are going nuts with little toddlers having to wear masks? If someone is going to get cobid it won’t be from a two year old!
Vues Master’s Note: Think in terms of Liberals they love rules and regulations!
Dear Vues Master:
I can’t believe that now drugs will become legal in NY! What’s next gambling will become legal? All I can say is that i hope that all these politicians that voted for legalizing drugs should stay off the roads as we don’t know if they will get hit by a high driver. It is bad enough we have a bunch of drunks driving!
Vues Master’s Note: Shows you how high these politicians are! They are on drugs and are really the lowest of the low! No self respecting person would vote like they do!How pathetic!!
ENJOYED THE CONCERT
Dear Vues Master: We had such a nice time watching the concert with Shwekey and we hope the Matzah Fund made a lot of money. Keep up the good work!
EG Vues Master’s Note: Thanks! It is nice that we were able to be a part of a lot of people’s Simchas Yom Tov
CAN’T LIVE WITH THEM CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT THEM
Dear Vues Master:
Why do we have the need that every Pesach we get products that are similar to Chametz or Kitniyos! What do you think will happen if you don’t have Heinz Ketchup for a week? Why is it mandatory to have mustard? In the past people survived without these things.
Vues Master’s Note: Oy! What my grandmother would say. A Bande spoiled people. And then My grandfather would say leave them gezunterheit! We are no longer in Europe!
Dear Vues Master:
Please watch your children. The other day I was driving andI almost hit a toddler crossing the street by himself. The mother came running afterwards! Our children are too precious and just because the weather is turning nice we still must keep a strong eye on them.
Vues Master’s Note: We just said in the Hagada “Ve’es Amaleinu eilu habanim.”
Dear Vues Master:
I occasionally use the Tfillon app. The davening is customized for each day and it highlights any special tefillos in color. You can’t make any mistakes. During sefira it only shows the correct day. Y R Vues Master’s Note: It is so nice when we are able to use tech for yiddishkeit!
Dear Vues Master:
The new world order is getting more and more obvious by the day. America will soon adopt the vaccine passport system which ousts the unvaccinated out of society. This has nothing to do with the virus anymore and too many people are going along with it. There are many people who are up to date with vaccines but do not wish to trust an untested vaccine. They are not anti vaxxers. What will become of the world and when will enough be enough? The elite governments are trying to take full control over the people and the world. These are times of revolution there is no doubt anymore. As much of a liberal as you can be, do you understand the dangers that we as humanity face if we keep going along with everything they force upon us? Humanity itself is in danger. Still think this is all for your safety? Do you still believe in the greater good?
Vues Master’s Note: I wish hindsight was 2020 and we would know what the truth is but we are in 2021 and still don’t know anything! Hashem is laughing at all these so-called experts!
Dear Vues Master: What is this new thing that while reading the Revii on CHol HAmoed and getting up to Kaeleh everyone feels the need to sing that word?
Vues Master’s Note: It seems like the Baal kriah can be trusted on all trope except for certain Azla Geireish in the Torah. Kotointi is another example!
Dear Vues Master: I don’t get why some have to put others down in such a pathetic, judgmental way in regards to them going to Orlando for Pesach, almost rooting for there to be problems. 1) Most Yidden who have money to spend work really hard for it. And if they don’t, it’s because the Aibishter decided to bless them with parnassah. How they spend it is none of anybody’s business. Jealous? That’s an issur deoraisa. Work on it. 2) We are not talking about the uber-wealthy here. This is not a Pesach program in Dubai that serves deer meat. Most of the folks who got messed over are your typical middle-class family who really can use a vacation. I’ve stayed home and I’ve done Orlando. The second option is much harder to execute. It involves much hard work and planning. The only added expense under normal circumstances is perhaps 2.5-3k for the house and the traveling expenses. Most people drive, by the way. 3) The point is that the people who got hurt are really in trouble and are stranded. We are talking about your average family who needs a bit of a break from daily routine. Don’t we all? I hope that it will somehow work out, and watching Klal Yisroel mobilize to help these families is inspiring.
Vues Master’s Note: I don’t think it is jealousy but more so the fact that we are antagonizing people of other faith and causing antisemitism! Yaakov Avinu taught the Shvatim well when he told them why should you show off!
Dear Vues Master: So when is the next election in Israel? It seems like Israel is the only democratic Country in the region so they feel the need to prove it by having elections every half a year!
Vues Master’s Note: I heard that there will be elections every three months so Netanyahu won’t be sent to prison!
