Isaiah 10, the punisment of Syria (and Assyria), the remnant of Israel shall return.

The punishment of Syria, continued from chapter 9.

 

The bible translations differ on the second Lord in verse 16. Some Hebrew manuscripts writes Adonai, others Yahwe. Let us look at the Dead Sea scroll:

The Dead Sea Scroll has Yahwe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

President Trump’s executive order on immigration updated, a Limerick.

Executive orders last week:

Just one was in need of a tweak.

Made the green cards exempt,

no more held in contempt;

now humming along, so to speak.

President Trump last week issued an executive order that has created considerable stir. It read: “I hereby proclaim that the immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens from countries referred to in section 217(a)(12) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1187(a)(12), would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and I hereby suspend entry into the United States, as immigrants and nonimmigrants, of such persons for 90 days from the date of this order.”  And it targets Syrians specifically. “I hereby proclaim that the entry of nationals of Syria as refugees is detrimental to the interests of the United States and thus suspend any such entry until such time as I have determined that sufficient changes have been made to the USRAP to ensure that admission of Syrian refugees is consistent with the national interest.”

Searching through INA 8 the countries of concern are defined  “The order bars all people hailing from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.”

The restrictions used to be for only four of the seven countries, but the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015 added Libya, Somalia, and Yemen as three countries of concern,

Trump didn’t select seven “Muslim-majority” countries. US President Barack Obama’s administration selected these seven Muslim-majority countries. 

The word Muslim is never mentioned in the order, nor is Muslim Majority countries.

The total population in the seven countries mentioned is: Iraq, 31 million, Iran 75, Libya 6, Somalia 9, Sudan 39 , Syria 21 and Yemen  about 24 million, for a total of 205 million out of a total Muslim population of 1.7 billion in the world. That means that 88% of all Muslims are not affected by this 90 day review, only Syrian refugees are mentioned, and only that the review will take more than 90 days and require further executive and legislative action.

The executive order was written in haste, and it became obvious it would have been better if the words “excluding green card holding aliens” had been added to “suspend entry”.

Realizing the mistake, President Trump wasted no time to clarify and amend the executive order exempting green card holders.

People, especially Democrats tend to forget that green card holders, resident aliens are still aliens.

Verse 84 of the Obama Impeachment song. Tell it to ISIS.

What’s next in the campaign against ISIS? The Obama administration really wants to tell all.

The Obama administration is preparing to intensify its military operations against ISIS in both Iraq and Syria ahead of ground operations aimed at destroying the group’s self-proclaimed Caliphate.

Dozens more special operations advisers could be deployed to help Syrian rebels prepare for major ground assaults including against the terrorist’s de facto capital of Raqqa.

Meanwhile U.S. Army Apache attack helicopters, already deployed in Iraq to help defend American assets there, could be authorized to carry out offensive strikes against ISIS targets.

The information was revealed to the New York Times by five Defense Department and military officials who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The new special forces soldiers would join around 50 already advising Syrian rebels fighting the Islamic State, including Kurdish peshmerga forces.

They would be separate to the 200-strong ‘expeditionary targeting force’ which includes Delta Force operatives and is designed to carry out raids on high profile targets in Iraq.

Military operations in Syria, including a sustained bombing campaign, are believed to be building up to an attack on Raqqa, in the country’s north.

The city has become a base of operations for ISIS and is believed to be home to several of its most prominent figures, including the masked executioner Jihadi John until he was killed in a drone strike last November.

This brings us to verse 84 of the Obama Impeachment song (as if sung by President Barack Hussein Obama to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)

I tell ISIS what I’ll do

I micromanage, right on cue.

I gave them their weapons too.

My “loose lips sinks ships”, the way to go.

Verse 69 of the Obama Impeachment song. What is worse: Climate change or WWIII?

Verse 69 of the Obama Impeachment song.

What is worse: Climate change or WWIII?

November 24: Turkey just shot down a Russian Fighter Jet over Turkish air space, but the surviving pilot landed in Syria, taken by Syrian rebels fighting Assad on behalf of Turkey. Turkey is fighting Assad and the Kurds in Syria. Russia is assisting Assad in fighting Syrian rebels assisted by Turkey, and are also fighting ISIS. Iran is assisting Assad in fighting the Syrian Rebels and the Kurds, and maybe ISIS. Turkey is helping ISIS fight Assad. U.S. is helping Turkey helping ISIS and the Syrian rebels, but is also fighting ISIS. France is jumping in fighting ISIS. U.S. say they are helping the Kurds fight ISIS, but are not, because that would offend the Turks and Iran. And then there are the Chinese trying to gain influence in the region. This is the coalition Obama says he is leading fighting ISIS, (or ISIL as Obama insists calling it, as the Levant also includes Israel).

Obama did, together with 40000 other delegates go to Paris Nov. 30 for the 2015 Climate Change Conference COP21. Alongside French President François Hollande at a joint news conference Obama said:

“Next week, I will be joining President Hollande and world leaders in Paris for the global climate conference.  …  What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be, when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children.”

What could possibly go wrong?

Which leads to verse 69 of the Obama Impeachment song (as if sung by President Barack Hussein Obama to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)

Climate change or World War III?

Yes, Climate Change much worse must be.

World Wars come and go, you see.

But Climate Must Not Change, That’s my decree.

Which is more threatening? The attack in Paris, or Climate Change?

Watching with horror the multiple simultaneous Islamic terrorist attacks on innocent civilians in Paris, France, while Paris was under the highest possible alert for terrorist activities, the French President Hollande among the spectators at a soccer match between France and Germany, and the climate control conference COP21 only two weeks away, the words of President Obama still rings in my ears:

“My definition of leadership would be leading on climate change, an international accord that potentially we’ll get in Paris. My definition of leadership is mobilizing the entire world community to make sure that Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon.”

Obama is also quite proud of his milestones on climate change, particularly after reaching a “historic” deal with China in 2014.

“The historic climate change announcements that we made last year in Beijing have encouraged other countries to step up, as well, increasing the prospects for a stronger global agreement this year,” Obama said in September during a meeting with Chinese President Xi at the White House. This historic agreement means that China is allowed to emit six times more CO2 than U.S.A. by the year 2030.

According to a well-researched article by Bjorn Lomborg, peer-reviewed, entitled “Impact of Current Climate Proposals” the predictions of how a total success in implementing all climate mediation recommendations, the result will be:

This article investigates the temperature reduction impact of major climate policy proposals implemented by 2030, using the standard MAGICC climate model. Even optimistically assuming that promised emission cuts are maintained throughout the century, the impacts are generally small.

  • The impact of the US Clean Power Plan (USCPP) is a reduction in temperature rise by 0.013°C by 2100.
  • The full US promise for the COP21 climate conference in Paris, its so-called Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) will reduce temperature rise by 0.031°C.
  • The EU 20-20 policy has an impact of 0.026°C, the EU INDC 0.053°C, and China INDC 0.048°C.
  • All climate policies by the US, China, the EU and the rest of the world, implemented from the early 2000s to 2030 and sustained through the century will likely reduce global temperature rise about 0.17°C in 2100.

These impact estimates are robust to different calibrations of climate sensitivity, carbon cycling and different climate scenarios. Current climate policy promises will do little to stabilize the climate and their impact will be undetectable for many decades.

Of particular interest is the impact of the US Clean Power Plan (USCPP) with its reduction in temperature rise by 0.013°C by 2100.

How much is 0.013 degrees? It is about as much as the adiabatic cooling of the atmosphere occurring between the feet and the head of an average sized person.

For this Obama is killing our Coal mining, while still calling the China climate agreement a success, allowing them to burn over half of the coal in the world.

And this is the most urgent danger facing us today?

Verse 64 of the Obama Impeachment song. Fifty pairs of Boots on the ground in Syria. Who, What, When and Where but not Why.

News item: Russian President Vladimir Putin is preparing to send up to 150,000 troops to Syria in a bid to wipe out the evil Islamic State once and for all.
Obama is responding in kind by sending up to 50 special force troops  to Syria to serve as ‘advisers’ without conferring with Congress for authorization.
Which leads to verse 64 of the Obama Impeachment song (as if sung by Obama to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)

Fifty guys to Syria’s war

I send, but I don’t know what for.

As I expose my special corps

Recruitment for ISIS starts to soar.
