So please quote the "chief Rabbinate of Isreal's" statement that Jared is not an authentic orthodox jew. thanks

The Chief Rabbinate's issue is not with Jared, but with Haskel Lookstein. Jared was born a Jew, regardless of whether he practices Judaism. Rabbi Haskel Lookstein's converts, on the other hand, have been ruled illegitimate by the Chief Rabbinate.

Well, one was, anyway. And he is not the only Orthodox rabbi in America whose converts have had that problem. And I do not know nearly enough about anyone's specific circumstances - including Ivanka's - to really opine on the situation.

You have this surpassingly bizarre notion that 'leftists' are opposed to the rich getting richer. I don't know where in the world you picked up such nutty ideas. A defective education, somewhere along the line. I'd like to see the WHOLE WORLD get richer.
Leftists are supposed to be against wealth inequality.
I've showed this to you before and somehow you forgot it. https://news.gallup.com/poll/190883/half-americans-own-stocks-matching-record-low.aspx
So as you're bragging that the stock market went up under Obama, the percentage of people who own stocks went down to record low levels.
Since you obviously need it, let me spell that out for you - that means rich people get richer and the poor and middle class don't benefit.

Leftists are against excessive wealth inequality. That happens to be a very important qualifier. Very few of America's leftists would be in favor of a perfectly equal wealth distribution. VERY few people would be willing to argue that a kid flipping burgers at a Burger King deserves to have just as much wealth as a highly skilled brain surgeon who has been plying her craft for thirty years. Again, we see that you have somehow acquired this highly peculiar stereotype of leftists and what they 'want'.

It is indeed very unfortunate that so many middle class Americans abandoned the stock market during the Obama years, when it was in the process of tripling.

They were probably listening WAY TOO MUCH to people like you, who were telling them that that Obama feller was simply WRECKING the American economy......:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Gee, where would anyone get the idea that leftists made a big deal out of income inequality? Obama: income inequality is 'defining challenge of our time' – live

Lol. So instead of blaming Obama and his shitty low growth policies, you're blaming the middle class for income inequality. You're just flailing because some facts got thrown in your face and you can't handle it. American's didn't abandon the stock market. They didn't have the financial means or confidence to invest. This is what happens in a low growth economy. As in the Obama economy that didn't see a single year with greater than 3% GDP growth. The rich see gains before anyone else.

Sigh. We've gone over this a dozen times before. You WEREN'T going to get 3% GDP growth in the decade after the financial crash, no matter WHO was elected President. You just WEREN'T. That it would take a full decade to recover from the Great Recession, that we would see a full decade of PAINFULLY slow growth, was PREDICTED in the very famous book, Eight Centuries of Financial Folly, by Kenneth Rogoff and Carmen Reinhart, published in early 2009. Because it ALWAYS takes the better part of a decade to recover from recessions triggered by a massive financial/banking/credit crisis, which is WHAT the Great Recession was.

But you don't CARE about that. You don't want to listen to economists who actually got it RIGHT. No, you'd rather listen to the dumb-shit economists who totally WHIFFED on the Great Recession, didn't even see it coming, and who are now telling you that we COULD have gotten right out it, within (golly!) just a few months, if only we had, well gosh!, just cut taxes, or something. Yikes.

Americans DID abandon the stock market after the crash. For GOD'S sake, you maroon, you just CITED statistics that SHOWED that a higher percentage of Americans owned stocks BEFORE the crash than was the case AFTER the crash. THINK, man! What does that TELL you??

Whatever you think of Presidents today, is not likely to be what future Americans think of Presidents. Obama and GW Bush never addressed Immigration and the problem has grown. Another caravan on its way to the U.S.. And, these will continue until Congress does something.

What did Obama and GW Bush do to stop illegal immigration? No much.

Trump is the only President who has stepped up to the plate, and the left hates him for it.

The Democrats would just have preferred that the problem was ignored, with millions of illegals crossing our border, over the past several years. Do nothing and the Democrats would be happy.

But, Trump chose to do the right thing. He chose to stop the illegal invasion of our country. And, for that he is hated.

This may be our last chance to get it right. If nothing is done to stop the illegals, Americans will regret not doing the necessary things to keep our country safe.

Yeah. Yeah, we got ONE quarter of 4%+ growth, and we did it by GOOSING the economy with a massive and wildly irresponsible tax cut. Obama had FIVE quarters with economic growth higher than that 4.2% growth. See, I guess you quite obviously didn't know that.

What you don't know would fill VOLUMES.....
