Trump ‘not satisfied’ with crown prince’s
explanation of Khashoggi killing

New York Post, by Mark Moore

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 10/23/2018 7:17:44 AM

President Trump said he spoke to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman about the killing of Jamal Khashoggi and doesn’t like his explanation from the Saudis for why the journalist was killed. “I’m not satisfied with what I’ve heard,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday as he left for a rally in Texas for GOP Sen. Ted Cruz. Saudi officials on Saturday said Khashoggi was accidentally strangled after he got into a fistfight with Saudi security officials after arriving at the consulate in Turkey on Oct. 2.

Aside from the fact that we should not ruin our relationship with Saudi Arabia for strategic reasons, I really don’t care about this issue.

The MSM is a lot more interested and outraged at this murder than they were about the murder of Seth Rich. Just sayin´.

Does it sound too much like a conspiracy theory to wonder if this is a deliberate plot to ruin the US relationship with Saudi Arabia, so that Iran will be the more powerful Mid Eastern force?

It´s hard not to be dissatisfied with that crazy explanation, but Trump should back away from the whole thing.

#3, no it’s not too much is conspiracy theory. Jamal was a point man and PR stooge for the ousted royals. They and the Western globalists are fighting tooth and nail for a return to “normal.” Trillions are at stake. They will do anything, including sacrificing one of their own to get rid of MbS and Trump. I hope Trump is just stringing this along for consumption by the outraged leftist cabal, and is not jeopardizing MbS reform efforts. Btw, the Saudis are practiced at publicly condemning Israel while working with it under the table on critical issues of mutual benefit.

Saudi Arabia represents itself to be the most Islamic country in the Islamic world. Why does the USA have to import that religious/political based based dark age culture into the USA?

That’s what Barack Obama and the liberal and socialist Democrats were doing by allowing as many foreign Muslims as possible into the USA through all sorts of immigration exceptions even allowing the UN to decide which Muslim “refugees” the USA must accept for resettlement, believing that those foreign Muslims would organize themselves in accordance with Democrat identity based politics as a new liberal and socialist Democrat constitutency voting group in the years ahead.

That is before the liberal and socialist Democrats were knocked out of the box by President Trump and his Make America Great Again policies and programs. Everyone should vote in the midterm election to keep it that way.

Thursday on MSNBC’s “Live,” Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe said President Donald Trump removing Attorney General Jeff Sessions and appointing Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general was a “slow motion constitutional crisis.” When asked why he believes the appointment of Whittaker is illegal, Tribe said, “The fundamental reason is the U.S. Constitution in Article 2, Section 2, Clause 2 makes it absolutely clear that a principal officer of the United States, that is somebody who exercises enough power so he’s answerable only to the president,

With his investiture ceremony Thursday, Brett Kavanaugh is finally, formally Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. But the fight over his nomination goes on. The battle is not being fought by Democratic dead-enders who cannot accept that Kavanaugh won confirmation despite the sexual misconduct allegations against him. Instead, the fight is being led by Sen. Charles Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who is still angry at the way those unverified and in some cases evidence-free allegations sidetracked his committee´s work, and nearly the nomination itself.

SAN FRANCISCO – Acting on a tip from law enforcement, Facebook has removed more than 100 accounts – 30 on Facebook, 85 on Instagram – engaging in coordinated activity in French, English and Russian, raising the possibility that foreign actors are attempting to meddle on the eve of the U.S. midterm elections.

A talking point has taken hold in the final hours of midterm election campaigning. The economy is booming, the story goes, but President Trump won´t talk about it at his massive rallies, preferring instead to dwell on illegal immigration, the caravan, and "fear." Republicans, locked in tough re-election races, are tearing their hair out, panicked, at Trump´s refusal to emphasize the nation´s economic progress, which is their strongest campaign pitch. The journalists and other political types who are repeating the talkin

House Speaker Paul Ryan got President Donald Trump on the phone Sunday for one final plea on behalf of anxious Republicans: Please, please talk up the booming economy in the final hours before Election Day. But Trump, unsurprisingly, had another issue on his mind. He boasted to Ryan that his focus on immigration has fired up the base, according to a source familiar with the call. Two days out from an expected Democratic takeover of the House, Republicans focused on the chamber are profoundly worried that

A press conference intended to publicize sexual assault claims against special counsel Robert Mueller collapsed in spectacular fashion on Thursday, after the pro-Trump operatives behind the event failed to demonstrate a grasp of even basic details about their accuser or explain why they had repeatedly lied about their project. Mueller has asked the FBI to investigate the effort from publicity-hungry Washington lobbyist Jack Burkman and pro-Trump Twitter personality Jacob Wohl, which has been dogged by accusations

We have an illegal alien horde approaching our southern border. No, we have multiple hordes approaching the border. With local police in Mexico unable to stop them, the closest caravan is 1,000 miles away from the border. The Trump administration has decided to deploy thousands of troops in hopes of preventing scores of illegal aliens from flooding into the country. It’s been slammed as a 2018 election ploy. For Secretary of Defense James Mattis, this isn’t a stunt. Yesterday, he shot down a reporter who made that insinuation during a presser with South Korea’s defense minister (via Fox News):

Pauline Kael, movie critic for The New Yorker, famously commented: “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don’t know. They’re outside my ken. But sometimes when I’m in a theater I can feel them.” Kael’s isolation was profound. When her observation first appeared in print, Richard Nixon had just carried 49 states. Members of the American aristocracy—the so-called “one-percenters”—live in a different world from that of regular, working-class, and small-business-class Americans.

A federal judge handed CNN a major victory on Friday, ruling that President Donald Trump White House must temporarily restore the press credentials it stripped from the network´s chief White House correspondent last week while a lawsuit plays out.
