Saudi Arabia hatch Bizarre plot to turn
rivals Qatar into Island with Huge canal

Sunday Express [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/1/2018 8:45:17 PM

(Video) - Saud al-Qahtani, a senior adviser to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, appeared to confirm the bizarre project on Twitter. He said: "As a citizen, I am impatiently waiting for the details of the implementation of the East Salwa island project. "This great historic project will change the region´s geography." Reports about the canal first emerged on Sabq, a news website close to the government in April. Unnamed sources described Saudi plans to build a military base and a nuclear waste dump beside a 60 kilometre (37 mile) channel measuring 200 metres wide and 20 metres deep and stretching across the

Comments:
As odd as this may sound, for less than a billion dollars, Saudi Arabia can isolate Qatar, who is on our list as a major terrorist supporter. What is confusing is that I thought that we have a military base there.

FTA: "One of Saudi Arabia biggest allies, however, is the United States, which also happens to maintain its biggest concentration of military personnel in the Middle East at Qatar´s Al Udeid Air Base."

Sounds like an incredible waste of money. And I wouldn´t be surprised if the desert sands would continually fill-in a canal unless it were frequently dredged.

Not a bad idea.
Rather than a wall, we should build a canal for large ships along the US Mexico border.

Something just makes me just love this idea. Dig the canal on your own land, sever the offending terrorist-funding country from the rest of humanity.
Using it as a nuclear waste dump is just a bonus to always be considered a no man’s land.

Kim Jong Un to visit Seoul, close
Tongchang-ri missile testing facility
NK News [Seoul, South Korea], by Dagyum Ji, Oliver Hotham    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/20/2018 6:38:20     Post Reply
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will visit the South Korean capital “in the near future” and will take tentative steps to close a missile and testing site, ROK President Moon Jae-in said on Wednesday. In a joint statement following the signing of a new inter-Korean agreement, the South Korean President said the two sides had agreed to “remove all danger” of war on the peninsula. The North Korean leader, he continued, would conduct an “unprecedented” visit to South Korea soon, and would close the Tongchang-ri engine test ground and missile test pad. Reports earlier in the year suggested that Pyongyang had already taken steps to

New York - A former aide so close to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo that he considered him like a brother was sentenced to six years in prison Thursday for fraud and accepting bribes. The judge said she hopes the punishment "will be heard in Albany." U.S. District Judge Valerie E. Caproni tried to put the sentencing of Joseph Percoco in perspective, noting other recent high-profile convictions of state leaders. (Snip) Percoco, 49, was convicted in March of accepting more than $300,000 from companies that wanted to gain influence with the Cuomo administration. The conviction was an election-year embarrassment for Cuomo.

(Video) - Google has been alerting U.S. senators and aides in the past year of hacking attempts by foreign governments targeting their personal email accounts. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., sent a letter to Senate leaders Wednesday noting the attacks and warning that Senate security staff have declined to help.

The warnings have come over the course of the past year, according to a Senate aide. The pace and frequency of the phishing attempts are unclear, as is their specific origin.

US slaps sanctions on Chinese military
unit for buying Russian jets, missiles
South China Morning Post [HK], by James Wilkinson    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/20/2018 5:42:49     Post Reply
The US government has slapped punitive sanctions on a key unit of the Chinese military for buying Russian fighter jets and surface-to-air missiles. Washington said that the purchases by the Equipment Development Department (EDD) of China’s Ministry of Defence violated US sanctions on Russia. Both the EDD and its director, Li Shangfu, have been named in Thursday’s sanctions. The action is “aimed at imposing costs on Russia in response to its malign activities,” a senior US administration official said, referring to alleged hacking by Russia during the US 2016 presidential election and its military intervention in eastern

This past week, I came home from work to find on my kitchen counter a 50th-birthday card from Landon School, the boys’ prep school I attended — which is just down the road, and not all that different, from Georgetown Prep, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s alma mater. (Snip) Ford had attended Holton-Arms, Landon’s sister school. I have no special knowledge about that night many decades ago — I never knew Ford or Kavanaugh, a man three years my senior who vehemently denies the allegation — but I do remember plenty about the culture of these same-sex programs, not all of it good.

The anti-Kavanaugh,
anti-Trump money trails

My gosh, but the left has got itself in a tizzy. A desperate tizzy, to be more accurate. A desperate, costly tizzy that pulls out all the funding stops, to be even more accurate. The money trail is never wrong. You’ve got George Soros‘ Open Society Policy Center funding the likes of Sixteen Thirty Fund, and then this Sixteen Thirty Fund, as the Daily Caller initially reported, siphoning off money to a group called Demand Justice aimed at stopping Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. The ties are tough to discern — but they’re there. (Snip) Who funds it? Very good question. Key phrase: “dark money.”

Haters now call Trump supporters

Watch out Trump supporters! Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden is on the trail and has downgraded you from “deplorables” to the “dregs of society.” It’s the September before an election, and like well-oiled machines, Democratic leadership crawls out of their basement, ready to instill fear, division and loathing into the American electorate. And they hate you even more than they did before. (Snip) But their biggest insult is to their own base whom they believe are so unhinged and lacking of a moral compass, that casting their neighbors as something less than human will inspire them.

GOP senator writes bill

A key senator announced legislation Thursday to authorize the government to hold illegal immigrant families in detention while they await their deportation cases, moving to clean up the legal mess that led to family separations earlier this year. Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, also wants to see streamlined hiring of border agents and better reporting so Congress gets a clearer picture of deportation wait times, treatment of people in detention and backlogs in asylum cases. But the crux of the bill would erase court precedents that have created what agents call a catch-and-release

The area of land being used to grow coca in Colombia has increased by 17 percent, according to a UN report. A peace deal with the FARC rebel group was expected to reduce cocaine production, but the opposite appears true. (Snip) The bulk of coca farming was taking place in the southern part of Colombia, the report found. Cultivation of coca in Narino department, on the border with Ecuador, surpassed 45,735 hectares (around 113,000 acres). That figure meant the region alone had more farmland dedicated to coca than the whole of Peru, the world´s second-largest supplier of cocaine after Colombia.

Since high school keg parties at the elite prep schools attended by Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey are now a matter of consuming interest to the Democrat-media complex, it is perhaps telling that the high school yearbooks of Holton Arms, the school attended by Blasey, have been scrubbed from the web. The blog Cult of the First Amendment says: On Monday Sept. 17th, Christine Blasey Ford’s high school yearbooks suddenly disappeared from the web. I read them days before, knew they would be scrubbed, and saved them.

Watching the slow, public evisceration of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Senate Democrats —on the strength of one unsubstantiated charge of alleged sexual aggression 36 years ago when Kavanaugh was in high school — a question comes to mind: Have you no sense of decency, Sen. Feinstein? Decency was once an important feature of the Democratic Party’s story. Long before Bork became a verb, long before Clarence Thomas was dragged through the mud because a conservative black man proved a profound threat to Democrats, the party held fast to the notion of decency.

First, Democrats are proving again that their force multiplier is a win-or-die zealotry. They were on a mission to kill anybody President Trump chose to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and, within minutes of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer announced he would fight Kavanaugh “with everything I have.” All 10 Dems on the Judiciary Committee pledged to vote no.
