Ivanka Trump Has Stood By Her 'Career Grifter' Man, Close Friend & Business Partner Moshe Lax, Writes Politico


Ivanka Trump Has Stood By Her 'Career Grifter' Man, Close Friend & Business Partner Moshe Lax, Writes Politico

It was a glorious night for Ivanka Trump, her longtime friend and business partner Moshe Lax and DuJour Magazine as Ivanka unveiled her jewelry collection at an event hosted on May 29, 2014 by DuJour's Jason Binn at Tryst, located at the luxurious Wynn Las Vegas. DuJour Magazine prides itself on being a quarterly lifestyle publication for the highly affluent, as it targets the "vibrant worlds of the wealthiest and most inspiring subjects in the world." 

At the time that Ivanka and Lax, a 43-year-old New York diamond heir and entrepreneur, were riding high with their vision of Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry, her first major business deal connected to the Ivanka Trump name. To the best of our knowledge, Team Trump hadn't yet huddled with Felix Slater to consider the possibility of a 2016 presidential campaign that coincided with big daddy Trump's long-held wish for a Trump Tower in Moscow -- as alleged Monday by The Washington Post. 

Politico updates Ivanka Trump and Moshe Lax's pedigree as lady Trump stands by her man. "vendors call him a 'career grifter.' "His father’s creditors claim he’s a fraud and a serial extortionist who shakes people down with trumped-up threats of criminal charges. With these and other allegations piling up in court records along with judgments—against him, his wife and his businesses—for millions of dollars, his lawyers are abandoning him, saying he’s a deadbeat. All the while, he’s been living in one of the most luxurious mansions in the Bronx."

One fact is for certain with the Trumps. They stand by their friends. 

Dear Ivanka, Study Gary Cohn For Clues On Finding Your Jewish Voice In The Trump Administration


Dear Ivanka, Study Gary Cohn For Clues On Finding Your Jewish Voice In The Trump Administration

Dear Ivanka. Once a Jew, always a Jew, but then. . . in your case. . . we are supposed to understand that you are still finding your voice seven years later on your own Jewishness. The last time Jews were visibly under attack in America and worldwide, many high and mighty Jews were unable to find the will to speak out on the growing global atrocities. My first husband was run out of Birmingham, Alabama in no uncertain terms because he is a Jew. The experience shook him to his core, being a Bronx boy from New York. 

A prominent member of your father's inner circle, his chief economic adviser, Gary D. Cohn -- a Jew -- nearly left the Trump administration in the wake of Charlottesville, reports the New York Times. 

In his first public remarks on the national dialogue about the Charlottesville violence and white nationalist marches against Jews. Mr. Cohn said in an interview on Thursday with the Financial Times, that as a “patriotic American” he did not want to leave his job as the director of the national economic council.

“But I also feel compelled to voice my distress over the events of the last two weeks,” Mr. Cohn said, with his knowledge that the mere thought that the stock market could tank if he walked out is a real one. 

Ivanka's NYC Rabbi Condemns Trump's Lack Of Moral Clarity As James Murdoch & Apple's Tim Cook Pledge $1 Million Each To Anti-Defamation League


Ivanka's NYC Rabbi Condemns Trump's Lack of Moral Clarity On Charlottesville As Richard Spencer Tells Israelis To Trust Him

Rabbi Emeritus Haskel Lookstein and his successors Rabbi Chaim Steinmetz and Rabbi Elie Weinstock,sent a letter Wednesday night to members of New York's Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun In New York. Rabbi Lookstein oversaw Ivanka's conversion to Judaism in 2010. 

The rabbis said: "We are appalled by this resurgence of bigotry and antisemitism, and the renewed vigor of the neo-Nazis, KKK, and alt-right." The letter continued: "While we avoid politics, we are deeply troubled by the moral equivalency and equivocation President Trump has offered in his response to this act of violence."

Other Jewish leaders spoke out on Wednesday. the Republican Jewish Coalition is calling on the president to “provide greater moral clarity in rejecting racism, bigotry, and anti-Semitism.”

In another bold stance registered against Trump's embrace of white nationalism, 

James Murdoch, the chief executive of 21 Century Fox and the son of Trump ally Rupert Murdoch, donated $1 million to the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) and asked his friends and colleagues to consider supporting the organization as well.

Apple CEO Tim Cook pledged that his company will donate $1 million each to ADL and the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center). Apple also will match employee donations to the two groups and others two for one through September, according to a memo Cook wrote Wednesday night obtained by BuzzFeed News.

Cook said he strongly disagrees with US President Donald Trump’s comparison between the neo-Nazi and white supremacist protesters and those who opposed their rally in Charlottesville.

“Hate is a cancer,” Cook wrote. “This is not about the left or the right, conservative or liberal. It is about human decency and morality.”

As Modern Orthodox Jews, Jared Kushner & Ivanka Trump Share Deep Connection To Israel & Chabad

As Modern Orthodox Jews, Jared Kushner & Ivanka Trump Share Deep Connection To Israel & Chabad

The Trump-Kushner family have said they practice Modern Orthodox Judaism and Jared Kushner graduated from The Frisch School, the prestigious New Jersey yeshiva. In Washington the family has joined the Chabad synagogue attached to Washington's Kalorama neighborhood.

Rabbi Levi Shemtov, heads the small membership synagogue, which is a seven-minute walk from their home. Throughout the years, many Jewish politicians have attended TheSHUL, including former senator Joe Lieberman and current Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, several Jewish ambassadors posted in Washington, and Israeli Cabinet ministers from the Orthodox parties. If Trump and Kushner attend the synagogue on a regular basis, it is likely to gain a lot of public attention, writes The Forward.

In a separate article The Forward poses the very question that captured my attention, writing "It might seem odd for a Modern Orthodox Jewish family to join a Chabad synagogue.  The relationship of Jared and Ivanka to the Chabad movement, also known as Lubavitch and Chabad-Lubavitch, was explored in one of the two Zembla videos exploring Donald Trump's relationship with the Russians. Chabad is the largest Hasidic movement in the world. 

This evening, Thursday May 25, all US media confirms that Jared Kushner is under scrutiny by the FBI for his involvement with the Trump campaign and the Trump White House. Trump's lawyer, Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter, Jamie Gorelick, has said that Jared Kushner will be fully cooperative with investigators.

The Media Goes Deeper And Deeper Into Ivanka Trump; Zembla Looks At Jared, Ivanka & Lev Leviev


The Media Goes Deeper And Deeper Into Ivanka Trump; Zembla Looks At Jared, Ivanka & Lev Leviev

Writing for New York Magazine's current cover storyCaitlin Flanagan shares an insightful view with analysis of Ivanka's childhood, her extraordinary attachment to her father -- and he to her, and the utter loathing that Progressive, Democratic and even Independent women are feeling for Ivanka these days.

Ivanka is now in Saudi Arabia, where she met with women leaders this afternoon. Surely the Trump daughter is shaking over the announcement that the FBI and now Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between the Trump Administration involves a person of interest in Trump's inner circle. Most pundits point to Ivanka's husband Jared Kushner and his previously unreported meetings with sanctioned Russian bank Vnesheconombank. 

Equally interesting -- and an association that involves Ivanka and Jared both -- are the couple's ties to the King of Diamonds -- notably of blood diamonds -- Russian billionaire Lev Leviev.
