Why Would the Washington Post Hire
Someone Like Jamal Khashoggi?

PJ Media, by Robert Spencer

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/23/2018 5:01:20 AM

The Washington Post is indignant that “hard-line Republicans and conservative commentators are mounting a whispering campaign against Jamal Khashoggi,” supposedly in order to “protect President Trump from criticism of his handling of the dissident journalist’s alleged murder by operatives of Saudi Arabia.” The Post hits these “hardliners” for highlighting Khashoggi’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and claims that “while Khashoggi was once sympathetic to Islamist movements, he moved toward a more liberal, secular point of view.”

Remember, Obama had the Muslim Brotherhood running his administration when he was in office. The Washington Post hire Jamal Khashoggi for the same reason that Obama hired his brotherhood. The hatred of the people in this nation.

I´m not sure about anyone else, but I shed no tears for this person. He was not a citizen of the U.S., he was a resident. Big difference. Let´s move on.

If true that Khashoggi was operating to topple/kill the Saudi royalty, he wasn´t operating alone. Others may just disappear like he did. The msm best leave this one alone. Move along.

Why does the left think we should all stop our lives and take up the Khashoggi cause, a man none of us know, or care about? The left certainly has not lifted a finger to defend any Americans.

It is clear there is a psychological connection between American Feminists and dominant Middle Eastern Males.

I have read many clinical psychologists who have had the guts to comment upon this, including Jordan B. Peterson.

The Marsixt left hates America as founded. The jihadis (of which the Muslim Brotherhood is the current incarnation´s founding fathers) hate America.

So, since The WashComPost is a Marxist propaganda outlet, the old ´the enemy of my enemy is my friend´ principle comes into play.

So, they love the Muslim Brotherhood, an ally in tearing down America.

Of course, the leftist fools don´t see that the very first group to be entirely wiped out if the jihadis were ever to gain power would be the godless, perverse leftists.

Chances are when the Washington Post hired Jamal Khashoggi and gave him an international media platform to criticize the Saudi Royal Family along with Saudi political policies, that the Washington Post did not know it, but they were also effectively signing Khashoggi’s death warrant.

After courting every city in America large enough to support its own Jimmy John’s franchise, Amazon is going to split its HQ2 between Long Island City in New York and Crystal City in the D.C. metro area. After all those governors, mayors, and even the Oak Ridge Boys begged Jeff Bezos to pick their city, the commerce conglomerate ultimately picked America’s largest city and its capital.

Jim Acosta is smug, and no
court ruling changes that
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 11/17/2018 5:01:44     Post Reply
So CNN’s Jim Acosta scored some court points with a ruling that orders the White House to give back his press pass, at least for the time being. But he still presents as a smug elitist. He presented as an out-of-touch elitist the day he jerked away from the arm of the reaching White House intern — the day he refused to cede the microphone and cede the floor and cede his time to the many other journalists who were patiently waiting to pose questions to the president. But post-ruling, caught on camera walking from the courthouse,

The race for Governor of Georgia between Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams wasn’t particularly close. Kemp won by 55,000 votes. But since the election, Abrams has tried to position herself for a recount, or something, that might magically erase that impressive margin. Today she gave up, sort of: Stacey Abrams halted her run for Georgia governor Friday, but the Democrat said she would not concede the contest to Republican Brian Kemp and planned to launch a voting rights group to file “major” litigation challenging election policies. There will be no such “major” litigation. What would it challenge?

The possibility of a permanent U.S. military base in Poland moved a few steps forward this week. U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis met with his Polish counterpart Mariusz Blaszczak Tuesday to discuss Poland’s offer to spend $2 billion on a permanent base for U.S. troops and their families in the country. The base was jokingly called “Fort Trump” by Poland’s president after meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump. “We are working out the details on what the offer is, what can best contribute to alliance unity, to alliance security and to the continued strengthening of the bilateral relationship,”

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, lost a last-ditch appeal Friday to block the eviction of his law practice from its Newport Beach offices. In a brief hearing at Orange County Superior Court in Santa Ana, Judge Robert J. Moss affirmed his Oct. 22nd order that Avenatti and his staff vacate their ocean-view suite in a building across from the Fashion Island mall. He ordered them to leave by Monday. Avenatti’s longtime law firm, Eagan Avenatti, skipped $213,254 in rent payments due over four months, leading the landlord, the Irvine Co., to sue for eviction.

NORFOLK, Va. — The man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan can move out of his mother´s house in Virginia and live on his own, a federal judge ruled Friday. U.S. District Court Judge Paul L. Friedman granted John Hinckley Jr. the largest measure of freedom he´s had since shooting and wounding Reagan and three others outside a Washington hotel in 1981. Hinckley was confined for decades to St. Elizabeths Hospital in the nation´s capital. Starting in 2006, he began to make trips to visit his mother, who is now in her 90s

A Republican incumbent congresswoman from Utah pulled ahead of her Democratic opponent by several hundred votes Friday, gaining her first lead in the House contest since Election Day. After the latest tally, U.S. Rep.

The two-term incumbent had previously trailed McAdams early Friday afternoon by 1,169 votes before the release of updated numbers from Utah County, the station reported.

Two southern Republican gubernatorial candidates are ready to move into their governor mansions after appearing to have pulled off victories in their races but their never-say-die Democratic opponents are refusing to give up – though the writing is on the wall. In Florida, the contest for governor between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum appeared all but over Thursday, with a machine recount showing DeSantis with a large enough advantage over Gillum to avoid a hand recount in that race. The latest numbers posted online by the state of Florida show DeSantis with more than 33,683 votes than Gillum.

Dartmouth Lawsuit Says School

Seven current and former Dartmouth College students filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Ivy League school, alleging it ignored an “animal house” atmosphere created by three professors in the school’s department of psychology and brain sciences. The lawsuit, which seeks $70 million in damages, claims the professors “leered at, groped, sexted, intoxicated and raped female students.” It alleges the professors conducted meetings at bars, invited students to late-night hot tub parties in their homes and invited undergraduate students to use cocaine during class.

Obvious Double Standard On Recusals

The installation of Matthew Whitaker as the acting attorney general has the recusal pundits barking like shelter dogs in the presence of a trespassing squirrel. In case you’re wondering how the recusal rules work, it’s simply a matter of whether it helps or hurts Trump. Don’t believe me? See if you can detect a pattern. Since Whitaker might rein in the special counsel, he must be recused, they argue. Similarly, when it appeared former attorney general Jeff Sessions might help Trump, he acceded to demands he recuse himself. But Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

Obama Judges Can’t Save Dem Losers

Obama-appointed federal judges have brazenly rewritten election statutes to favor Democrats challenging the outcomes of races in Florida and Georgia. In both states, however, the apparent losers haven’t benefited from arbitrary changes these partisan jurists made in the laws by which election officials are legally bound. Thursday, for example, an Obama appointee changed the rules governing how mail-in ballots with signature mismatches must be handled in Florida — just hours before the legally-mandated recount deadline. In Georgia, two Obama appointees changed the rules regarding how to count incomplete absentee ballots, provisional ballots,

British politics and markets are in chaos because Prime Minister Theresa May can’t sell her long-awaited Brexit plan — and no one knows what comes next. After British voters narrowly approved a withdrawal from the European Union in 2016, we felt the United Kingdom would be better off — able to make its own decisions on trade and immigration and free from lunatic EU regulations. But little of that is in the deal May unveiled Wednesday night. It leaves the UK within the EU’s economic orbit, subject to many of the bloc’s existing regulations and tariffs,
