Jesus followed the principle of Pikuach Nefesh as you will soon see. Trump is another matter altogether.
An article in the Jerusalem Post about COVID-19 and the Haredi community called for “sensitivity” in dealing with the crisis in Brooklyn and the author cited non-religious conflicts in his article as an historical basis for cracking down on communities. Anarchy, it was suggested, will be ushed in when one group gets its way today and another group in conflict with the will of the government will get its way tomorrow. This article mentions Cuomo in New York and Netanyahu in Israel and their dealings with Haredi. And the conclusion is that nobody is exempt from complying with the law.
Trump has not been mentioned and he is the Anarchist-In-Chief. There is anarchy taking place because of his masks are optional approach which violated White House directives given to the Haredi community by Avi Berkowitz on or before March 17, 2020. The message which was then defectively abandoned almost immediately by Donald Trump was save lives.
Since then pastors throughout our nation have opened up their churches and some of those pastors and many congregants have died. A children’s playground where the lock and chain were broken in Brooklyn was given preference over saving lives. People in Florida, Iowa, and many other states have chosen Love Thy Job More Than Thy Neighbor. And Jacob Kornbluh was attacked and beaten in the street for writing the truth about social distancing in Brooklyn’s Orthodox community in the newspapers and he was beaten as people carried Trump flags to support Trump’s opening up of their community. And when Kornbluh was attacked, Trump did not even make a statement (again). And the leadership in the Congress is not taking action necessary to see that people have money to eat. The anarchy is all over and commandeered by Pennsylvania Avenue. Trump does not have the power in so many places like New York so he sows discord.
None of the thoughts that I have expounded here are within the article published by The Jerusalem Post, as though these things have not taken place yet. And I keep reading about Orthodox Jews talking about protestors that are not singled out. A clear reminder is that those protestors are not guided by Pikuach Nefesh or Saving Lives. “Thus, the Law is designed to promote life, and the preservation of human life is a higher priority than the observance of the Law,” and “Jesus followed the principle of pikuach nefesh when He healed people on the Sabbath.” And that information comes from Got Questions answering things about the Bible. Even real patriots know what all of this is about as they fight wars.
And here is the latest news. Things are getting much worse and Trump and his supporters are to blame
Fauci says it might be time to mandate masks as Covid-19 surges across US

Rudy Giuliani had his hand down his pants in the new Borat movie and Trump has had his hand in places that he never should have had them. Jagshemash. I am not here to defend either one of them. Kenneth Cohen, an English Jew, led the effort to assist the French Resistance against the Nazis and their collaborators. So I wonder if Sasha Baron Cohen is related to that Brit whose intelligence and resistance may have shared his DNA with Borat.
That takes me to Darlan, the assistant to Marshall Pétain who headed Vichy France when France was split in two. Darlan was selected to head the North African part of Vichy since the Germans lost control of it. Roosevelt did not like de Gaulle. Jean Brouton who had been one of the survivors among the officers (6 of 45) on the ship that the British destroyed in 1940 could not believe that Roosevelt would appoint a “traitor” to that position. Darlan, in checking the history of that time, had a mixed record. Frenchman were outraged both in France and in London where de Gaulle set up a government in exile. Remember that among other things, Darlan was a Republican who served the interests of protecting Jews in Vichy France when Jews were rounded up in Paris and sent to their deaths. I wrote in my last article that Pétain had Jews around him. And Brouton was evacuated from Vichy France just at the moment that Darlan was appointed. German oppression just started to reach Vichy so things were getting worse for everyone there, including Frenchman who were being sent to forced labor to support the Nazi war effort. And Darlan reluctantly administer anti-Semitic actions in Vichy.
A young man, only 20 years of age, went to Darlan’s office with a gun and assassinated Darlan. We now wait to see if Donald Trump can dodge the bullet-ballet of the Electoral College which would destroy his political life unless he really has ideas to install himself in Washington, D.C. He can rename Trump water (a product that he owns) Vichy, which was known for its healthy waters in France.
The young man, it turns out was a “monarchist” who wanted to restore the monarchy. That youth was executed two days later by the Vichy regime.
Then I purchased a new book by Lynne Olson and I immediately read that Norway was “so socialistic that a King and Queen seemed out of place.” And it did get a king decades earlier. Norway was a Republic and this new king was called “Herre Kong” or “Mister King” and the queen did her own shopping.
The Germans attacked Norway and took over after taking significant loss of life as a cruiser was sunk. The Norwegian government was evacuating fast with its supply of gold so the Nazis couldn’t take it for their sinister purposes. In the book about the French Resistance, when Roosevelt spoke about installing Darlan, he mentioned he was no “idealist” and would take on Quisling or anyone else to achieve his objectives. Quisling (head of the Nazi Party of Norway) was installed by the Nazis, a man whose party had only achieved two percent of the vote in Norway. Roosevelt’s view that the French Vichy forces would go over to our side was incorrect as Vichy forces fought the allies “at almost every landing site” during the assault on North Africa.
And in America today, we are learning about the right wing committing violent acts in Minnesota and elsewhere. Americans are learning more and more that the right wing is a threat at a moment when Trump has asked them to “stand by” because someone has to do something about Antifa and the left. Norway was Socialist! Socialist! Socialist! Americans are being told that Venezuelan socialism is coming here. Norway’s socialism was similar to the advances being made in the United States during those days.
It’s very hard to deal with Republican voters for the most part since they really don’t seem to care what Trump does or says. History teaches us a lot and we can see clearly today the mistakes made by Trump. The latest news tells US that his mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic has cost 100,00 lives.
The human cost of the Trump pandemic response? More than 100,000 unnecessary deaths.

Trump credited Roosevelt as one of the four great presidents, but how wrong both men have been. In these final days we can learn from the history of this pandemic and throw Trump out of office.
