Gedolim in the Trump post--Truth and alternative facts Era

Today it seems as personality is more important than knowledge of Torah/
 a Rabbi who can inspire and gives people what they want is viewed as a Gadol.

Torah laws can be ignored if you have enough money

as HaRav Sternbuch told me "money can purify even the status of mamzer"


  1. The era started well before Trump's 2016 campaign.

  2. For starters, the RSK bit in silver springs and Nashville, even the ignoring of Rav Dovid's psak dates back to before Trump.

    Torah thought on parsha תצוה
    Hertz Chumash:
    continually תמיד The Rabbis interpret the lamp as a symbol of Israel, whose mission it was to become a light of the nations (Isa. xiii 6)
    שמות פרק כז פסוק כ
    וְאַתָּה תְּצַוֶּה אֶת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְיִקְחוּ אֵלֶיךָ שֶׁמֶן זַיִת זָךְ כָּתִית לַמָּאוֹר לְהַעֲלֹת נֵר תָּמִיד
    ישעיהו פרק מב פסוק ו
    אֲנִי יְקֹוָק קְרָאתִיךָ בְצֶדֶק וְאַחְזֵק בְּיָדֶךָ וְאֶצָּרְךָ וְאֶתֶּנְךָ לִבְרִית עָם לְאוֹר גּוֹיִם
    מלבי"ם ישעיהו פרק מב פסוק ו
    ואתנך לברית עם. זה ישראל שעמהם כרתי ברית, תהיה אתה האמצעי שתתקיים הברית הזאת: לאור גוים. אלו עובדי כוכבים, שתאיר להם האמונה לבל ילכו באפל ויכירו אחדות ה', ומפרש נגד לאור גוים:
    Rabbi Sternbuch means by money can purify the mamzer is that money will corrupt judges/rabbis/administrators etc. In the Gamara when they talk of a solution for a mamzer, that he should go where no one knows that he is a mamzer and there marry a Jewish bride. Rabbi Greenblatt marrying Tamar to her lover in Nashville was horrible. Rabbi Kamenetsky takes money from Tamar’s family and approved the adultery... Horrible. I’m waiting now for rulings on 2018-1149 NYS Ct of Appeals and 2018-7160 SCOTUS. Why did SCOTUS agree to rule on 2/22/2019? SCOTUS extremely rarely takes on cases... SCOTUS is good. Trump is good. God bless Trump and America.

    See, the law is plain that a ממזר that has sex with a Jewish woman, the baby is a kosher Jew but cannot be considered part of the כהן class.
    טור אבן העזר הלכות פריה ורביה סימן ד
    חוץ מממזר הבא על בת ישראל הולד כשר לקהל אלא שפגום לכהונה
    Fits well with Kiddushin 76a
    “GEMARA. Why are the women investigated but not the men? When women quarrel among themselves, they quarrel [only] about immorality, so that if there is anything, it is not generally known. But when men quarrel among themselves, they quarrel over birth; if there is anything, it is generally known.”
    The Gamara says that women may scream at each other: you slut/whore you slept with my husband; while men may scream at each other, you bastard.
    Bastard =
    an unpleasant or despicable person. "he lied to me, the bastard!" synonyms: scoundrel, villain, rogue, rascal, brute, animal, weasel, snake, monster, ogre, wretch, devil, good-for-nothing, reprobate, wrongdoer
    HaRav Sternbuch is saying that with money El Chapo is not guilty, the K-G heter is valid, Judge Eric I. Prus is OK...
