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.

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.

Brexit: ‘No Deal’ Is Ideal
New York Sun, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 1/17/2019 5:34:53     Post Reply
The defeat in Parliament of Prime Minister May’s compromise with Europe opens the way to true independence for Britain. It presents the chance for a redemption of the referendum of June 2016, when Britons were asked “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?” and 51.89% answered “Leave the European Union.” It is too soon to declare mission accomplished. The future can still be lost, but Britain just took a giant step in the right direction. It makes clear that Britain’s future lies with a “no deal” Brexit.

New York Times wasn´t always so suspicious
of ´secretive communications´ with Russia
Washington Examiner, by Eddie Scarry    Original Article

Newsrooms turned their attention again this week to the never-ending Russia investigation and their storylines on President Trump’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. So it’s as good a time as any to recall the New York Times’ posture on Russia before 2016. (Snip)But the Times was much more generous in describing what you might otherwise call “secretive communications” with Russia when Barack Obama was president. In 2012, during his re-election campaign, Obama was caught by a hot mic whispering to then-President Dmitry Medvedev that he was potentially

I appreciate David’s response to my column on the FBI counterintelligence investigation of Trump, but unfortunately don’t find it persuasive. David emphasizes how the regulations governing a counterintelligence investigation focus on the activity of the foreign power. Yeah, sure. But that’s why the Times story was so explosive. It reported on a counterintelligence investigation of Trump himself, who is obviously not a foreigner, but the duly elected president of the United States. The Times story says that the FBI feared Trump might have been a witting or unwitting agent of the Russians.

There’s Nothing Wrong With Open Borders

The internet expands the bounds of acceptable discourse, so ideas considered out of bounds not long ago now rocket toward widespread acceptability. See: cannabis legalization, government-run health care, white nationalism and, of course, the flat-earthers. Yet there’s one political shore that remains stubbornly beyond the horizon. It’s an idea almost nobody in mainstream politics will address, other than to hurl the label as a bloody cudgel. I’m talking about opening up America’s borders to everyone who wants to move here.

I’ve changed my mind about building a wall along the Mexican border. Build it! The US government is shut down and the economic ramifications will be great. Not only are the families of people who’ve been put out of work being hurt but the entire economy is going to be affected. Challenger Gray & Christmas, a research firm, estimates that the shutdown could reduce consumer spending by $3.4 billion a month. And since the consumer is the biggest part of our economy, that’s going to smart. The hard-headed politicians in Washington are clear: President Trump says

A list of 50 Jesuits who were found by their organization to have been credibly accused of abusing minors was released this week, revealing that some of the alleged abusers circled through various institutions, sometimes for years, after the alleged abuse took place. The list, released by the Northeast Province of Jesuits on Tuesday, shows that much of the abuse was reported years after it allegedly took place, meaning that officials may not have known about the wrongdoing when they transferred priests from one institution to the next. However, nine priests the list states,

Details about Justice Department official Bruce Ohr´s meetings with the author of the salacious anti-Trump dossier were shared by Ohr with his expansive circle of contacts inside the department -- including senior FBI leadership and officials now assigned to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, Fox News has learned. Ohr gave a closed-door transcribed interview last August sharing details of his 2016 meetings with British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who authored the dossier later used to secure a surveillance warrant for a Trump campaign aide. The interview was part of the Republican-led House Oversight and Judiciary Committee probes.

Yes To Refunds, No To Audits: What To

As the shutdown rolls on, taxpayers have been left wondering: What does it mean for tax season? Earlier this month, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that tax season would open on time (January 28, 2019) and, in a departure from previous years, that tax refunds would be issued during the shutdown. Over the weekend, the IRS announced that Free File, a free online software program available through IRS.gov, was open for business even as IRS doors remain closed. Today, taxpayers finally received more information about what to expect from the IRS during the government shutdown.

Politics is cyclical. Republicans will not always hold the White House. Democrats will be back. If only they realized now the threats to our democracy that presently are being institutionalized. Threats that will endanger them and their future leaders terribly — and all of us. When “progressives” had Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt in power, did they ever imagine a Reagan Revolution? During Reagan’s fabulously successful conservative presidency, could anyone have imagined a radical-left Wasted Obama Decade? When Obama was at his height, with commanding control of the House and a filibuster-proof Senate, could anyone have predicted fearlessly that America

A “superstar” DEA agent secretly fueled a lavish lifestyle by skimming cash from Colombian cocaine traffickers through a multimillion-dollar scam that officials say is turning into one of the worst scandals in the agency’s history, according to a report Tuesday. Jose Irizarry, who resigned after being recalled from his post in Colombia, was recently identified in court papers as a co-conspirator of a former DEA informant who pleaded guilty to money laundering in Florida, according to the Associated Press. Profits from the scheme helped Irizarry, 44, buy a Land Rover and a home in Cartagena, the Colombian resort city

President Trump on Thursday abruptly denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, in a stunning response to her call to delay the State of the Union address amid the government shutdown.

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung.

Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.
