Leftist Jews Refuse to Admit Jews Like Me Exist

 

The letter from three-hundred-forty know-it-all Rabbis just had to go and try and pretend that Jews like I and millions others just do not exist. They wrote this time to support President Obama, seemingly their idea of the perfect messiah, and to claim that any Jews who opposed his glorious Iran Nuclear Deal were an aberrant minority. Their idea that Torah instructs Jews to be socialist bleeding-hearts leftist elitists and that Tikkun Olam means to change the world to fit their leftist socialist world-views and it need start with eradicating any Jews who differ from their opinion which is simply distasteful and offensive. When a Jew such as myself would claim that Tikkun Olam actually means to repair the individual and by each person bringing themselves closer to Hashem by their daily actions and treatment of others and always giving respect and through personal fulfillment and the assisting of others in personal and communal fulfillment under Torah, they claim it means building their vision of a socialist utopia. And do not get me started on the ninety-eight Jewish Hollywood leftist extremists who speak as if their opinions should be enshrined in some holy place for people to come and find wisdom in their words because they have name recognition and popularity for their entertainment factor and this means they should lead. I would rather a hundred Kansas or other flyover country farmers lead the world than entrust it to the ninety-eight (call it a hundred for the sake of equality) Hollywood elitists who signed a letter adding their names to the din of leftist blindly supporting a deal they have been called upon to support by their infallible leader, Barack Hussein Obama.

 

One has to wonder how many of these wunderkind have actually read the deal and all of its accompanying documents before rushing to give support to something which is empty of any measures to judge compliance and the ones they did put in the deal may as well be voluntary as Russia, China and Iran have votes to determine if Iran is complying. Talk about the fox guarding the henhouse. Additionally, Iranian security authorities have additionally insisted that all IAEA inspectors be cleared by the Iranian government. One assumes this is so if they take a wrong turn at one of the facilities and open a wrong door and spy a little something which has not been reported and signals a definitive breech of the Nuclear Agreement that they will, once instructed by the Iranian government that what they saw was a top secret experiment which has nothing to do with what they think it does and thus need not think any further of said incident and no real need to report it as it was not a part of the approved tour. What? You didn’t think that the inspectors were going to be allowed to actually inspect, did you? Of course they will have minders to assure they see all they are supposed to see and not one iota more. These inspectors will be chosen for their lack of initiative and lack of curiosity as well as their ability to follow directions explicitly and without question.

 

 

the dog and pony show, which has been the present IAEA inspections, they have been attempting for over two years to get the answer to a short list of questions pertaining to the extent of the Iranian nuclear research, enrichment and any weaponization experiments or trials. The IAEA knows that such were carried out but are unsure of the totality of the military works performed. They have also been seeking access to the Parchin military base where the IAEA knows that testing of a nuclear trigger had been carried out and the last time they inspected they found trace elements of HEU (Highly Enriched Uranium) and ever since have been attempting to return. During this time period the inspectors have been denied entrance, just as before the IAEA was permitted to inspect, the ground around the base has been replaced with fresh soil taken from a distant site. This time they have cleansed the soils twice, once more just weeks ago as if in preparation to allow inspections.

In case you may have missed the dog and pony show, which has been the present IAEA inspections, they have been attempting for over two years to get the answer to a short list of questions pertaining to the extent of the Iranian nuclear research, enrichment and any weaponization experiments or trials. The IAEA knows that such were carried out but are unsure of the totality of the military works performed. They have also been seeking access to the Parchin military base where the IAEA knows that testing of a nuclear trigger had been carried out and the last time they inspected they found trace elements of HEU (Highly Enriched Uranium) and ever since have been attempting to return. During this time period the inspectors have been denied entrance, just as before the IAEA was permitted to inspect, the ground around the base has been replaced with fresh soil taken from a distant site. This time they have cleansed the soils twice, once more just weeks ago as if in preparation to allow inspections, but we will need to wait and see. If the Iranians continue replacing the top of the sand around the buildings they might eventually bury the entire Parchin military base leaving nothing to inspect. The entirety of the nuclear agreement provides wording which calls for inspections on a regimented basis determined by the concerned nations of Iran, the United States, Britain, France, the Russian Federation, China, Germany and the European Union. There is a reference to an appendix which itself had a number of references.

 

Figuring the full implications and references within the agreement may all be an exercise in futility as there is, in the silenced hands of the IAEA, which the Iranians have demanded total privacy such that only those hands who drafted this second agreement are to be privy to the contents and only those select few agreed upon by all drafters would be given access to the whole or any part of the augmenting agreement, is an auxiliary agreement which modifies the currently released agreement in ways unknown and thus far undefined manner. For all anybody may know the very first line of this hidden agreement could state that it replaces the entirety of the publically released nuclear agreement and instead could add or change everything in any manner possible. President Obama has skirted any discussion of this secondary agreement which could be an alternate to or amendment of the publically released agreement. This makes any discussion of the currently debated nuclear agreement potentially a moot point as we know not what the actual agreement states and even measures or permits with its secondary augmentation agreement, though kept from the public and the Congress and even, as we were informed during Secretary of State Kerry’s testimony before the Senate, even kept from the Secretary of State who was simply not considered sufficiently discreet or necessary in the negotiations or implementation, thus left out of the loop and given a rough briefing as he had stated in testimony.

 

So, what could be so classified that the Secretary of State and the Congress are kept in the dark, only selected few are granted privilege to view, and a select individual or group within the IAEA are permitted knowledge and who are entrusted with guarding the secrets of the agreement II and the effects it will have on the currently debated agreement and assuring that no leaks or security breaches are permitted. So the Congress is willfully left in the dark to debate an agreement which may have been superseded by a another agreement which was molded in dark recesses and forged on a cold anvil for fear that it might see the light of day and thus be cleansed and placed honestly before the public or, at the very least, be shared with the people’s representatives who could then express their opinions. This is also a part of what the leftists claim the people must simply support on the word of the President. This agreement is to be accepted as good for Israel because President Obama, what many see as Israel’s greatest enemy to ever sit at the resolute desk and write executive orders, has stated such. One has to wonder if this nuclear deal is good for Israel in a similar manner as some of the other choice treatments the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has faced from the White House. But then some of the same people screaming against the Jews who oppose this deal calling them traitors, they were the very same ones who saw no problem when the White House arranged for the Israeli Prime Minister to enter the White House by the side delivery entrance and not the front door as the President did not wish for any to know he had met with Netanyahu.

 

This same President who demanded that the 1949 Armistice Lines be the basis for any border with a Palestinian government, the same President who left the Israeli Prime Minister so he could go eat dinner with his family and to even rub this in the Prime Minister’s face while demanding that Netanyahu and his advisors to do some soul-searching and to call for President Obama to return when they had changed their minds and adopted his plan where Israel simply pulled out of Judea and Samaria and half of Jerusalem and see if this would bring the Palestinian to cease hostilities and live side-by-side in peace and harmony. Somehow I do not see myself trusting that all is well just because the same people who have been wrong on almost every decision in foreign policy since Jimmy Carter and who have made life for Israel more difficult, even the best of the best who for Israel were actually the least worst. Every Administration since June of 1967 has demanded that Israel just surrender those small bits of land and all will be well and when that was insufficient to quiet the Arabs then it was time to demand that Israel forfeit another piece of land and when that too failed to soothe the savage beasts Israel was again demanded to withdraw from land and this would make the Arabs love Israel.

 

They did not. Now we are told by probably amongst the top five anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Israel as the Jewish state has an iron clad agreement which will prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons with which to destroy all of Israel and likely much of the United States for anywhere like ten to fifteen years as if this is supposed to make us in Israel feel all warm inside? All I wish to say at this point is if the Hollywood Jews or the three-hundred-forty Rabbis from reform, conservative and other non-Orthodox Synagogues, many in these groups care over Israel with any fervor and are more determined to grant President Obama his legacy, well, we in Israel would prefer not to become the last who resided in what once was Israel and now is used to test the lethality of the Iranian nuclear devices. But then there are those who understand that while Israel would take two and maybe three Iranian nuclear devices, it would take only one used as an EMP explosion over St. Louis at a preprogramed explosion at the height for maximum gamma radiation and EMP effect to destroy the power grid almost from coast to coast thus leading to ninety percent of the American population die from lack of food, medicine and other essentials including no clean drinking water, sewage treatment, trash pickup, and a general failure of societal structure. Even the Military, FEMA, the Center for Disease Control and numerous other agencies have all predicted such a catastrophe yet of unknown proportions after just such an attack. The lucky few will be beneath the explosion and die immediately while all the others will be left to die slow and agonizing deaths. I guess a quick flash and next thing you know you are waking up dead, a far better fate then the slow and miserable death where towards the end you are unable to move as you die from hunger, disease and declining health due to malnutrition, usually referred to as starving to death.

 

This, we hope, will be our final article dealing with the ratification fight in the United States as all evidence points to their potentially not having the votes to bring cloture and force a vote. This simply means those who are true believers in President Obama and his deal can simply say they wish to filibuster and the current rules of the Senate will not require them to actually filibuster but simply claim they will and the bill dies. Those opposing the deal should in this instance forget civility just as the President has done and force them to talk 24/7 until they drop or allow a vote. This will not happen and even if they manage to pass the bill President Obama has the Democrats, especially those who support Israel, especially if they are also Jewish, running scared that the entirety of the Democrat Party will come down on them and squash their reelections. The signals which have come from the Democrat leadership and many in the rank and file have indicated that those who have supported Israel may be almost beyond the cusp of acceptability as the Democrats run away from Israel seeing it as an inconvenience suffered through the past to gain Jewish votes and cash for campaigns. The Democrats have new sponsors with the monies and they wear flowing robes and look like extras from the set of Lawrence of Arabia. It was bound to happen and it only required one party to sell America out to the biggest donors and have said donor demand the death of America. The United States is now under a suicide watch just waiting for her to collapse from her own denial of her founding principles. As Jim Morrison of the Doors wrote in lyrical form,

 

This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I’ll never look into your eyes, again

Can you picture what will be, so limitless and free
Desperately in need, of some, stranger’s hand
In a, desperate land

The United States military has decided that the conditions are currently of sufficient threat that they have decided to send NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) to scurry back to the warm confines of the Cheyenne Mountain complex and its independently supplied internal electricity generations and grounded steel walls where they have no susceptibility to an EMP pulse no matter the degree of severity, even the most fearsome solar storm which might char and disintegrate the entire North American electronic grid. Apparently the decision to reposition to Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs has struck a snag or two or more. They claimed the savings and ease of commute made the move economic and practical sense, especially as the Cold War had past and there is no overriding threat demanding they continue using a base which provides the level of protection as the Cheyenne Mountain Facility. Well, well, what could have occurred to alter that line of reasoning and should the average American be concerned, well, concerned at least as much as the military and the commanding staff of NORAD apparently are being. Perhaps if we view the reasoning we can decide exactly how much of a threat there is and whether serious concern might be necessary.

 

The reason announced by the military for returning NORAD was that it is now feared that the North Koreans and potentially their allies in Iran have perfected miniaturizing of their nuclear warheads and might place one atop a North Korean mobile KN-08 mobile launch vehicle. This sent the military command of NORAD scurrying within one of the world’s safest locations deep within Cheyenne Mountain buried deeply under a few thousand feet of rock, mostly granite, and encased in steel and concrete with two sets of blast doors unrivaled, one backing the other making a double door with a dead space between them to absorb any force which might manage to pierce the outer door. These blast doors close making the tunnel reaching the Cheyenne Mountain a perfect arc opened at both ends so as to pass and blast-wave from a nuclear or other device detonated near either entrance an easily followed natural flow-path right through the mountain, past the blast doors, and on out the other side. The Cheyenne Mountain location not only easily houses the necessary personnel to cover and maintain their functions without break along with their families and a full garrison of Marines but also hold the supplies that would permit operating completely closed-off safe from any attack, especially any nuclear or EMP attack. We described a means by which both Iran and North Korea could launch and use a weakness in the radar protection and by mimicking the orbit of a weather satellite, an orbit both nations have used previously for launches, near the end in the final paragraph of our article titled, ”Is North Korea Sabre Rattling for Attention or Real Threat?”

 

There are further reasons for moving NORAD back to its original safely, armored, buried, EMP proof and self-supporting location which they abandoned in favor of easier access as they have been monitoring since 2013 as reported by an ABC News reporting coverage from 2013 by Martha Raddatz ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent which can be viewed below. Needless to say that placing NORAD back where they should never have left will be a far cry from ending the threats from a nuclear armed North Korea, who has been threatening a nuclear EMP first strike against the United States, or Iran as they also could use such weaponry to cover far more evil intents than just striking NORAD. There is the possibility that either Iran or North Korea could launch at a closer target causing just as much harm on the global scale and have a dastardly effect on the world or the United States. North Korea has regularly threatened their South Korean neighbors and even regularly launched rockets into their waters and threatened far worse. Iran, on the other hand, has threatened not only the United States but also Israel, Saudi Arabia and other of her neighbors. Iran is currently engaged in three wars already, there is the Syrian Civil War where Iran and their terror allies of Hezballah fight the plethora of Sunni militias all having some degree of attachment to al-Qaeda or other terrorist organization, fighting in Iraq against ISIS, a Sunni terrorist organization which follows a strident version of the Quran by which they have destroyed numerous historic relics and other precious items claiming that because they were objects which they determined were un-Islamic and thus unworthy of being displayed and especially considered precious or of any value to the human race, and now Yemen where they are arming the Houthis and may even provide them with intelligence as well as command and control assistance.

 

 

 

 

The threats made by the likes of the Ayatollahs of Iran and those made by Kim Jong-un are usually merely saber rattling meant for domestic consumption and to give the people faith that their nation is able to stand against anybody. The fact that they get media coverage as well bolsters the belief making them appear more important. The other problem is that in many ways the leadership of both Iran and North Korea actually do mean those threats they make and would act upon them if they felt they were readily executable. This makes the North Korean threats to use a hydrogen bomb on the United States as an EMP generator to destroy the North American electronic grid far more serious. The fact that these leaders continue to allow their people to suffer unnecessary hardships due largely to their leaderships’ threats of warmongering which leads their nations to face sanctions is just as monstrous and evil as one can get. The further fact that they and their coterie live lives of lavish excess eating caviar, roast duck and champagne while their people, especially the people of North Korea, starve or make do with tree bark and grass soups can only be defined by Evil as the word for such extravagances and lavish life styles and the unbelievable difference between the lives of the privileged few enjoy as compared to the lives of their military members is only exceeded by the further difference approaching the same scale between the lives of apparent excess lived by the members of the military compared to the veterans and the population as a whole. The members of the military are not the problem as in many cases parents push their children towards the military such that they can have a better level of life than the parents had suffered. These radical differences exist almost as a caste system between the political leadership at the top, the military in between and the population and the elderly living lives beyond any desperations than most of us are capable of even imagining, let alone understanding. The most absolute depravity is displayed with the fact that the North Korean elite actually will make these threats and back them through actions which if ignored might actually lead to the North Korean leadership in particular to reigniting the state of war which continues to exist between the North and South Korea simply to hold talks where along with the demands from the leadership is also requests for food and other aid to be given the people to prevent even more deaths due to starvation, malnutrition, and the desperate lack of medical attention to treat and care for the people.

 

What makes these situations even more horrific is that these conditions are not all that uncommon throughout many of the third world nations. Contrary to the apparent belief, very few if any of these situations would be alleviated by changing their governance to a democracy as this would simply result in their electing the elites back into power. The first step the world needs to take also is not necessarily food aid and other such generosities as providing such aid deprives the farmers of a local market for their produce which results in their requiring aid because they are unable to sell their produce. Where aid most likely will be required to feed the entire population, the farmers must also be able to market their produce. The kind of aid which would go the furthest would be to allow corporations to set up factories and thus provide a basis for an economy and set the nation on the road towards a functioning economic base which is currently nonexistent. These factories also need to provide jobs not solely in the major cities but throughout these nations. Currently many of these nations lack even a rudimentary base for economic production which stands between them and receiving such investments.

 

Of course there are indicators that these problems may be coming to what are currently considered first world nations as the economic bubbles have begun to deflate one after the other and in some economies the house of cards is already collapsing. This is evidenced in Europe where the attempt to place all nations on a single currency has simply led to exposing the disparate economic models causing economic collapse as this unitary currency system collapses where had these nations retained their own currencies then there economies could have survived these downturns as their currency would have been permitted to respond to the change in their economic situation according to each individual nation allowing for a more favorable return on investments which cannot be had under the unified currency of the Euro. That their currency was beyond their control simply exasperated their financial difficulties and making any response simply beyond their control as they have no means of altering the value of the currency to respond to the situation and difficulties faced. This problem was unavoidable for as long as each nation was permitted to set their financial and economic policies while sharing a single currency. This removed their ability to control the single most important item in their economies, the cost of labor. Once the cost of labor separated sufficiently from the values set for the Euro itself made the problem become irreconcilable. These problems which are only growing while those nations with healthy economies are increasingly pressed to support the less wealthy nations within the European Union in particular, and to an extent throughout the third world, the difficulties are only going to be pushed to a point where the whole financial constructs begins to fray to the point where there are no longer solutions under the current systems. In too many cases simply continuing to patch the problems while ignoring the central causes will lead to what we would call the “point of exasperation” which is where the nations giving support are brought down as the cost and needs for support reach levels beyond any reconciliation and all hope is lost and the people then turn to their governance and demand relief leading all too probably to revolutions where the violence makes even the hope for investment to flee and refuse to make investments where such expenditures are the only hope for salvation and the start of normalcy.

 

Still, where is one to take the first step towards addressing the problems, and in the case of North Korea even coming to grip with the reality the people face, and after making that assessment then turning the nation around and giving the people hope. There exists no single solution though in many cases it is the leadership’s setting of priorities which has simply aggravated the situation leading to a downward cycle which results eventually, if permitted to continue, to the unsettling set of conditions in North Korea. Solutions, and not just feel-good knee-jerk reacting, must be found and those solutions are not pumping food and funds as simply feeding the hungry for a week, a month is not going to provide the hope and the means for the people to help themselves which is so desperately what is needed. In many of these situations there exists a disparity where the very wealthy live almost in a different world than do the masses. These situations are of a kind which led to revolutions which is what eventually led to the changes in the Western world though not all nations benefitted fully from the gains made since the industrial revolution and now the information age. The efforts to attempt to bring a third world nation into the information age in one fell swoop are not the solution as such an economy is unsustainable when considering the education and familiarity with such tools is taken into consideration. One needs to walk before they can run and the same can be said for national economies. The initial problems are infrastructure, both materially and by the population as a whole. When these problems are what is addressed then there can be progress but simply shipping tons of food aid which sometimes sits unloaded and goes bad rotting in place for the lack of trucks and a distribution network as even aid packages require a certain level of infrastructure before even that is of any substance. And yes we realize that in places like North Korea and Iran part of the problem is the governance though that is an even more difficult nut to crack. There is no universal solution and as far as the threats from North Korea and possibly Iran, there is no solution beyond preparing for the worst and hopefully cutting the head off the hydra and preventing it from simply replacing that bad head for another. Iran is a nation with the wherewithal to save itself if only the people can be freed to take on the challenges directly, but that cannot happen while their leadership is intent on spreading their version of Islam to the world. Such belligerence is not to be tolerated and must be opposed, something the P5+1 negotiations is apparently refusing to oppose rather than complying in the hope that things will improve before World War III is launched from the missile pads within Iran. North Korea will remain beyond help for as long as the leadership is tolerated rather than opposed and the situation resolved. Step one is provide a path to better governance through ending the state of war between North and South Korea, until that is addressed there can be no change to the situation. These are stark and difficult challenges which is why they are also the most pressing and dangerous challenges the world is currently facing with the growing gap between the first and third worlds, a gap that is threatening to become unbridgeable.

EMP Attack and Vulnerability of the United States

There is a chance that the conversations regarding the threats that an EMP attack could have on the infrastructure and the actual existence of civilization will come up due to House of Representatives proposed legislation called  Secure High-voltage Infrastructure for Electricity from Lethal Damage Act also referred to as H.R. 2417. Links to the text of the Bill can be found here. We discussed the results of an EMP attack briefly back on February 3, 2012 in the article Doth Israel Protest Too Much and figured with the introduction of this legislation we might do so again. The first thing might be to explain what exactly an EMP attack is. EMP stands for Electro-magnetic Pulse and there are a number of ways to generate them. Every electronic device generates small amounts of EMP with motors and generators producing among the highest levels but even those are insignificant compared to an EMP device. There are ways using massive coils and pulsing huge amounts of current switching it on and off or having it change polarity to produce an EMP of sufficient level to cause damage to sensitive electronics. An easier way is to simply detonate a nuclear warhead fairly high in the atmosphere as every atomic device produces a very sizeable EMP as a result of the detonation. Such a device need only be an atomic bomb of merely twenty kilotons, not necessarily a thermonuclear bomb which means a simple fission device such as the devices dropped on Japan to end World War II and one does not need the more technically challenging fusion Hydrogen bomb. Such a device has already been tested by North Korea and some have assumed that the Iranians already have sufficient knowledge and may have even secretively produced sufficient weapons grade uranium to have assembled as many as two or three such devices. Should one such device be detonated over the central United States it would destroy virtually the entire United States Electrical Grid and much of Canada’s grid as well. Fortunately our military has already hardened their systems protecting them from an EMP attack but the problem is that the military relies on the civilian power grid for the vast majority of their electrical generation. For that reason alone the United States needs to harden the electrical grid and preferably also require any tactical productions companies and other vital systems in the civilian sector also be hardened. It has been estimated that in order to accomplish this it would cost between two and five billion dollars, a small investment when one considers the risks run by ignoring this problem any longer.

 

The main reason that the United States not only needs to address this problem but needs to address it immediately has to do with the fact that our potential enemies have been training and planning for such an attack. Both the Russians and the Chinese militaries have trained in the use of an EMP device knowing the vulnerability of the United States. Further, they have also shared their knowledge with both the North Koreans and the Iranians both of whom have even actually trained and practiced the necessary launch procedures in order to deliver an EMP device. The Iranians have carried their preparations out to such an extent as to make it their apparent primary weapons system utilization. Perhaps you remember the news reports which ridiculed both the North Koreans and the Iranians for their missile launches which exploded at their apogee well up in the atmosphere. Our news reporters claimed that these launches exploding was a complete failure and a shortcoming when the reality is these were practices for deployment of an EMP nuclear device. The Iranians have gone even further and practiced launching their moderate range SCUD ballistic missiles from barges and off of cargo vessels to the point of carrying several such missiles on a single cargo vessel and launching them in rapid succession. The reason behind this tactic is the Iranians have a plan to utilize cargo ships to launch from either the Atlantic or Pacific coasts or from the Gulf of Mexico all of which would be vulnerable to a ship launched missile which the United States interceptors and radar systems are not necessarily able to detect and intercept.

 

That is why this legislation is so vitally important to the future of the United States and its way of life. If a successful EMP device were to be detonated over the central United States almost the entire nation would be plunged back to using technology from over a century and a half ago. There would be no electric power, no working vehicles which depend upon computer circuitry, no refrigeration as their controllers would be destroyed and there would be no electricity to run compressors or fans, and the diesel-electric trains would be rendered useless. There would be some trains we could get into service once we figured how to move the old coal fired steam engines from the museums onto the railroad tracks. The Department of Defense estimate of the results from an EMP device being detonated over Ohio predicted that half of the population of the United States at best would survive the first year. That should be sufficient to light a fire under our elected representatives but instead they have relegated H.R. 2417 to committee where it will likely lie dormant until the end of the current session kills it. We have seldom asked for people to take action but this is an exception as if we can get just a core few Representatives and Senators to act on pushing for hearings and a vote on this legislation then we may be able to avoid the consequences of allowing nothing to be done and the vulnerability to continue. As we have pointed out previously, the Iranian’s plan is to first decapitate the United States and then turn their attention to the destruction of Israel. Many of those who are in positions of power believe exactly the opposite that Israel would be attacked first and that would be their warning to prepare. Even if they were correct, that would be too late to start to act. But logistics and tactics both make attacking the United States by striking a decapitating blow such as an EMP attack produces would be required before attacking Israel. The reasoning is simple. If you attack either the United States or Israel the Iranians have to believe that the surviving resources of both nations would be brought to bear against them. Believing such then it becomes necessary to minimize the retaliatory abilities of the greater power, the United States, hoping that the Iranian military and leadership would be able to survive any retaliation in order to attack the other nation. The one thing we can rely upon is that any attack launched or arranged through utilizing their terrorist assets by the Iranians will follow a logical order, even if we know nothing else about them we can count on that logic.
