This week Judge Brett Kavanaugh was sworn into become 114th supreme court justice. It is a great victory for the Trump administration, for conservatives, and for anyone who has an interest in preserving the moral standard in the country. For years the Democrats and liberals have dragged the morality of this country into the gutter and worse. With the last two conservative justice appointments to the Supreme Court, Mr. Trump has halted the path of immorality that the liberals have led us on.

One of the primary reasons that our greatest rabbanim implored us to vote for Trump was specifically for this reason. They knew that another liberal justice on the Supreme Court would sink this country into further immorality and seal its moral and ethical fate. The powers of good and principled morality overcame the powers of evil this week once again and it is a cause for great celebration.


Over 25 years ago Rav Avigdor Miller, zt”l, was deeply concerned with the immoral path the Democrats were leading this country down. He said that world history teaches that when a country becomes completely immoral, God ceases to permit its existence.

Perhaps we can learn this from this week’s parsha where we read about the destruction of the entire world due to the immoral behavior of its residents.

Decades ago Rav Miller was concerned with the direction the Democrats were leading the country. What would he say today after eight years of the worst president in modern history, Rachmana litzan? Trump’s policies and common-sense approach, and Supreme Court appointments have definitely prevented this country from continuing down its demoralizing destructive path.

The Democrats and liberals set the corrupt agenda, and the media broadcasts it to society. Together they are responsible for the immoral culture of this land. It is for this reason and others that the media and the Democrats have decided to try at all costs and means to attempt to completely destroy Donald Trump and his appointees, throughout the campaign, after his election, and now during his presidency. They see him as a threat to their iniquitous agenda. A conservative justice on the Supreme Court is an impediment to using the court to further advance their agenda, and they sought to sabotage anyone who stands in their way.

Another area where the Trump administration has been accomplishing things we could not have even thought of is in the UN. Ambassador Haley has done a wonderful job of defending the United States and Israel in a room full of people who hate them both; albeit the later more than the former. This week she announced her resignation, and this author is thankful to Nikki Haley for all the positions she advanced and the great job she did defending Israel.

Last week we read the first parsha in the Torah, Beraishis. The first Rashi in the Torah asks that famous question: why did the Torah begin with Beraishis and not with the first mitzvah found in Parshas Bo? Rashi answers in the name of Rabi Yitzchak that the Torah began with Bereishis so that in the event that the nations of the world should ever claim that we stole Eretz Yisrael, we can answer them that Hashem created the world and chose to give Eretz Yisrael to the Nations of the world and now has chosen to give it to us. That is why the Torah wrote the entire Sefer Bereishis and beginning of Sefer Shemos.

I would like to ask when did the nations of the world ever make such a claim? Rashi wrote it in future tense, as it had not happened previously. In the last millennium until recently has this claim ever been made by the nations of the world? The answer is not until the creation of the UN was it even possible. One of the functions of the UN is to give a voice to the nations of the world and they have used that platform to make this claim, predicted by Rabi Yitzchok quoted by Rashi.

Ambassador Haley did a wonderful job putting many of them in their place, but it is our job to finish the message as Rashi writes. We must tell them who created the world, Who has a right to give counties to nations, and Who gave Eretz Yisrael to us now once again.
