President Trump and the Wall – Revoke the 2nd Amendment – Stop Crime

  • The Supreme Court struck down a lower court ruling 5-4 against President Trump declaration of an emergency on the border of Mexico.
  • Madonna with 64 years of wisdom, the holy queen pop star and American Guru has pleaded for America to do something about the problem of murder and homicides by people with firearms abusing the 2nd amendment.
  • President Trump who is a reformist now that he has the Ok from the Supreme Court to build the wall can complete the correction of crime and drug traffic in America by revoking or changing the 2nd Amendment.

The Supreme Court struck down a lower court ruling 5-4 against President Trump declaration of an emergency on the border of Mexico.  The ruling clears the way for Trump to redirect $2.5 billion from the Pentagon to build his long promised border wall. President Trump has faced opposition from Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer who have called the building of the wall a bluff and not a true solution at all. They claim that making the wall will not even dent crime in America.

The Trump wall is a colloquial name for a proposed expansion of the Mexico–United States barrier during the U.S. presidency of Donald Trump. Throughout his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump called for the construction of a much larger border wall, claiming that if elected, he would “build the wall and make Mexico pay for it.”

President Trump’s main purpose in building the wall was his claim that there have been entering into America criminals and drug traders illegally, a danger to America.  He tried to show proof by bringing victims of homicide by illegal aliens.  Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer did not recognize these claims. They said no national emergency. Building the wall was no solution.

For sure the building of the wall can improve national security and reduce crime to some extent. However the crime and murders of illegal aliens in America each day are only a small percentage of these incidents.  Today again seven people were injured and one killed by gunshots in Brooklyn.  Last week four people were killed by a gunman in Los Angeles.  These are the statistics: Nearly 40,000 people died from guns in the US last year. This is the third consecutive year that gun deaths have risen in America.  Only a very small percentage of these deaths can be attributed to criminals and drug pushers who infiltrated the country from the southern border or illegal immigrants who obtained firearms.

Trump has only started to solve the problem of crime in America by building the wall in the south.  Another source of this crime is the accessibility of American to purchase firearms.  The Second Amendment of the Constitution of America reads: A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed. Without revising the second amendment or nullifying it completely, President Trump has really done nothing at all to improve life in America and reduce crime by building the wall in the south. The $2.5 billion is a large expense which will in the end not make a dent in the number of homicides each year. Changing the Second Amendment to limit the ability of every person to acquire firearms is the answer to the dilemma of homicide in America.

Madonna with 64 years of wisdom, the holy queen pop star and American Guru, has pleaded for America to do something about the problem of murder and homicides by people with firearms abusing the 2nd Amendment.  She appeared this year in Eurovision out of her love for Israel and the Jewish people. She has joined Jews in California in study classes of the Kabballa. Not only Madonna but many Americans see clearly that the problem of crime in America is related to the Second Amendment of The Constitution.

To amend a clause in the constitution of America is almost as hard as changing or modifying Jewish law. Jews are observing a period of mourning for the destruction of the holy temple in Jerusalem.  There were two temples built in the history of the Jewish people. The first temple built by King Solomon stood for over four hundred years until it was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar of the Babylonians in 587 BCE on the 9th day of the lunar month of Menachem Av.  After seventy years of exile of the Jewish people from Jerusalem, the majority of them lived in Babylon, Ezra the scribe in 516 BC returned to Israel and rebuilt the temple which stood again in Jerusalem until 70 CE when it was destroyed by the Romans also on the same day the 9th of the month of Menachem Av like the first temple.

Jewish law is against democracy.  The nation of Israel at the time of the temple was a theocracy and monarchy.  Orthodox Jews follow Jewish law and pray for the nation to return to Israel to build the holy temple and establish the monarchy under the Law of Moses.  The Law of Moses had no flexibility as far as freedom of religion. Orthodox Judaism was the only religion allowed in the land of Israel. Changing even a small statute of the holy law was called treason and punishable by death.

Christianity was established by a Jewish rebel who fought for freedom and was sentenced to death and executed by the Romans who were also against him as a threat to their authority.  Christianity became the largest religion in the world. Afterwards came Mohammed who established Islam the second largest religion in the world. To return to build a nation without freedom of religion in today’s times where the almost the whole world has accepted democracy is not practical.  However Jewish law does not allow any modifications.  Changing Jewish law which has been the foundation of the survival of the Jewish people until today when has been established the Modern State is a problem today causing a split between secular and religious in Israel.

American civilians own nearly 100 times as many firearms as the U.S. military and nearly 400 times as many as law enforcement. Americans bought more than 2 million guns in May 2018, alone. That is more than twice as many guns, as possessed by every law enforcement agency in the United States put together.

America has a constitution which came into effect in 1789. In the constitution the Second Amendment gives permission for all Americans to acquire firearms.  In the beginning of America during the pioneer frontier firearms were a necessity. Today it is evident that the possession of firearms makes America the leader in homicides by a large percentage in the world. The possession of firearms is undeniably the major problem in America, not the wall in the south.  To change The Constitution is not simple.  Also for the Jewish Orthodox mind to change after 2,000 years to accept the democracy of Israel when the nation survived in the diaspora living according to the Torah, is even more difficult.

Righteous religious leaders of Israel like the Baal Shem Tov the founder of Chassidism saw that Jewish law was causing discrimination against simple Jews living in Ukraine. He made every effort to incorporate these simple Jews in his congregations. He received great opposition from fundamental Orthodox Jewish leaders. Assimilation was growing in Europe and causing a split in the Jewish nation between secular and religious. The schism is even more felt today in Israel.  The Zohar esoteric Judaism containing is said to have been written in the times of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai shortly after the destruction of the holy temple. The Zohar introduced a new thought in Judaism that there are two ways to connect to God directly like in worship by Islam and Judaism without any images God the formless and by connecting to the righteous saint the Messiah and the Kabballa.  Before the Zohar there was only one way which was through learning and observing Torah law. The Zohar revealed a second way which was through love and mercy. The Zohar was not burnt by the religious leaders even though the concept of two spiritual unities was progressive. It was only modified to accept the way of Jewish law which is one way with no freedom of religion. Many years before the prophet Jerimiah in chapter 29 also spoke about two direction of prayer called the seed of the animal and the seed of man and their unity.

MAGA, Make America Great Again, is the motto of President Trump.  Will America still be America after the Second Amendment is changed?  Will the Jewish people still be a nation if they accept freedom of religion, Christianity, Bhuddism, and Islam which came after the revelation of Mount Sinai. The freedom to purchase guns in America interferes with the freedom of Americans to live peacefully in their own land. Laws against freedom of religion in the Torah even against Monotheism in other forms do not allow Jews to think freely, pray freely, transcend and meditate to be creative and be religious. Once again America and Israel are tied together with similar issues to modify old sacred doctrines.

Not all Orthodox Jews are against the State of Israel and democracy.  Some are for the establishment of the State but want that it should become a theocracy like it was in Biblical times like Meir Kahane who was called an extremist and denied the right to sit in the Knesset. Rabbi Yisrael Ber Odessa a leader of the Breslov Chassidic movement wrote many letters to Zalman Shazar the Prime Minister. In one of these letters written close to Independence Day he blessed the State of Israel in the traditional way with the blessing Shechayanu a blessing of joy and good tidings. He more than any other Chassidic religious Jew saw a solution to the schism between religious and secular in Israel.  His solution was for the nation and the government to accept Rabbi Nachman of Breslov as a figure head King of Israel.  He wrote Zalman Shazar many times, the letters are in a book called Avi HaNachal.  Even if Israel today is a democracy like other nations which were once monarchies or theocracies they can have a king which gives royalty and holiness to the nation. America never had a king only a founding father George Washington whose picture is on the dollar bill with the inscription In God we trust. Frontier days in America are over with cowboys and Indians.  The police and law enforcement secure the rights and protect civilians.  They no longer need a militia.

President Trump who is a reformist now that he has the OK from the Supreme Court to build the wall can complete the correction of crime and drug traffic in America by revoking or changing the 2nd Amendment. If he does this he will for sure win the election in 2020.
