Saudi Crown Prince shocks Islamists
with bold moves in Egypt

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 3/6/2018 8:52:47 AM

It is hard to overstate the significance of a hugely symbolic move by the reformist Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman (MbS). American media mostly are clueless about religion, and lack any understanding of the momentous changes underway on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with the full support of the Trump administration. The fact that MbS is reputed to be close to Jared Kushner seals the deal (snip) This picture, with MbS under a picture of Jesus and meeting with the Coptic Pope, is a potent symbol of where the winds are blowing in the former home and

Comments:
Islamism rose on a tide of Saudi money. That tide is receding, and MbS is showing the Muslim world that the days of violent confrontation are over.

I find the poster´s comment way overly-optimistic... but we can pray and try. I´m certainly for shocking Islamists.

The radical Wahabbi Islamist movement grew under OPEC. Today, the toothless OPEC can only "gum" the world to death with threats of price increases. Everything ties to OIL, not politics. Money makes the world go round, not people.

Saudi Arabia knows almost every nation in the world has ready access to oil and/or gas, even Israel. There are few countries that DON´T have oil/gas within their border or water rights. Now that the USA is again the top exporter, the b-tards are playing nice.

I agree to a point here. The globalists are certainly the ones who have been shocked by this. From things I have read, some of the purged Saudis were funding things through our own Deep State during previous administrations.

If Trump is inspiring the Saudis to purge the globalist corruption from their midst, all the more power to him and to them.

I am thinking too that that purge eliminated a whole bunch of the friends of the Bush Clan from their positions. That had to have hurt the Bushes deeply. But I could not care less about the whimperings of globalist and corrupted dynasties.

Amazing piece. That picture of the prince under the image of Jesus is worth a million words. Obama wouldn´t be photographed without covering any of the Christian symbols while at Notre Dame. That has to place Obama squarely in the Wahabbis´ camp.

A primary factor in this is that the Saudi Crown Prince fears Iran, big time! The Saudis are not capable of meeting a military offensive by them and Iran wants to rule the Middle East. We are good buddies because the Prince wants us to have his back!

The Wahhabi sect of Islam, created in Saudi Arabia 150 years ago and brought to the forefront when it´s primary adherents,the Saud family, wound up ruling Arabia, is currently one of the most virulent, fundamentalist and conquest oriented version of Islam, harkening back to the most violent past of Islam.

If this new Saudi leader is going to undo the damnable Wahhabi insanity, which has been largely responsible for driving a lot of the most destructive tendencies of Islam to the forefront, and funding the terrorists with oil billions, this could be huge.

Unfortunately, in Turkey, where Ataturk moved Turkey forward into a relatively modern and secular country after the WW1 fall of the Ottoman empire, the evil Islamist thug Erdogan is now busily undoing a century of advancement and pushing Islamist hatred as the official line in Turkey.

All the signs are that the new Saudi leadership is doing a change as huge as Ataturk did in Turkey, much to the benefit of Turkey, and the whole world. Let´s hope that this new Saudi king lives long and is successful in defusing the most violent forms of Islam.

If Jared Kushner has a hand in making this work, he may be doing the best thing that has been done in the middle east in a century and a half. Certainly, it looks like the new Saudi king is a fundamental change for the better.

Twitter culls fake followers,
Democrats hardest hit

Twitter announced it would be culling the platform´s fake followers. It makes good business sense to do this, because fake followers distort the influence ratings for advertisers, making accounts full of fakes a money-losing proposition for advertisers (who are Twitter´s real, paying customers). If someone has fake followers, they look more influential than they really are. Well, guess what: There is an extraordinarily high number of Democrats, the kind who draw lots of media hype, with puffed up ´it´ status, loaded with fake followers. I went and checked with this site called TwitterAudit here. Some of these accounts, as both Twitter

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Only a fool or a Democrat (the two groups considerably overlap in the United States) would believe Peter Strzok’s claim under oath that it was only the appearance of bias, not actual bias, that was the problem with his texts to his inamorata Lisa Page. Yet, the Democrats in the joint committee hearing were eager to hitch their wagon to his fate. One of them, Rep Steve Cohen of Memphis, offended many people with his claim that Strzok deserved a “Purple Heart,” oblivious to the genuine grievous physical injuries that have been honored with this medal that he trivialized.

House Dems outraged as Ryan and McCarthy
call their bluff on ‘abolish ICE’ bill
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/13/2018 8:43:24     Post Reply
All but admitting that the bill they introduced yesterday to abolish ICE was a political stunt, three House Democrats are feigning outrage (the default option for Dems ever since Trump won the presidency) that it will be promptly brought to a vote. They actually announced that they will note “no” on their own bill. (snip) Normally, members of a minority party publicly fume when their bills are not brought to a vote by the leadership of the majority. This is the standard operating procedure. But Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan – perhaps inspired by the way President Trump does things

Her mind wandering and her words not coming out right, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, 78, is sounding more addled than ever, unable to express any clear line of thought. Which is consequential if you are a Democrat (snip) Asked a question about her leadership and the pressure from Democrats for her step down, Pelosi replied: I think some of it is a little bit on the sexist side – although I wouldn’t normally say that.

Did Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and

The citizenry of a nation that has experienced unprecedented peace, prosperity and global or regional hegemony over four or more generations are often lulled to sleep believing there will never be an end to their good fortune. Inevitably these countries and empires have floundered and decayed as they gradually and unwittingly descended into societal, political and economic chaos (snip) Fortunately for America, the conjoined hubris of the Democratic Party hierarchy, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton combined with the socialist absolutism of Bernie Sanders, opened the door for the left to unabashedly come out of the closet during the 2016 campaign.

Somebody with deep expertise on image creation got ahold of the latest darling of the left and glammed her up for her current role as the standard bearer for the socialist wing of the Democrats, the Great Hispanic Hope to lead the "browning of Amerca" toward a radical future. Sometime between 2011 and 2018, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was transformed from an earnest and nerdy wannabe entrepreneur into a glamorous radical crusader for socialism, the delusion-of-the-moment that has captured the imagination of the malcontent demographic slice of America.

Virtue-signaling Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel

That´s right: Hillary Clinton is running for president again in 2020. She has actually ramped up her campaign since her defeat in 2016! From her Twitter feed to university speeches to appearances abroad – from Ireland to Australia to India – the "I´m with her" campaign continues. (snip) The Clintons, because of their money, fixers, connections, and long held positions of power, are still widely feared in the Democratic Party. Few, if any, Democrats will risk criticizing Hillary Clinton, knowing they may appear in Trump campaign ads. Such contrariness is hazardous to a Democrat´s career and quite possibly to his

Speaking at the University of Missouri in Columbia during a 2008 speech, then-Senator Obama said, "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America." Many believe that this fundamental transformation was pursued for the eight years Obama was in office. Few would say that at the time that a fundamental transformation was already going on in Chicago. For more than fifty years, the Chicago Democrats were using population removal to get votes and guarantee the outcome of elections. Just as an iron curtain once fell across Europe, a red curtain had already fallen across Chicago´s 50 wards. What

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause.

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

A 13-year-old girl in Alabama was beheaded because she saw her Sinaloa Cartel-associated granny stabbed to death by drug traffickers, authorities have said. Mariah Lopez, 13, and her grandmother Oralia Mendoza, 49, were killed on June 4 in Moon Cemetery outside of Huntsville, Alabama, prosecutors revealed in court on Thursday. The new details in the case came in a hearing for 26-year-old Yoni Aguilar, who along with 34-year-old Israel Palomino is charged with two counts each of capital murder in the slayings. At the hearing, investigators testified that the grandmother Mendoza had ties to the Sinaloa Cartel,

Moscow - When President Vladimir V.

All he really needs to make his meeting with Mr. Trump a success is for it to take place without any major friction — providing a symbolic end to Western efforts to isolate Russia over its actions against Ukraine in 2014, its meddling in the United States election in 2016 and other examples of what the United States Treasury Department has described as Russia’s “malign activity” around the

President Trump signed an executive order in June to allow migrant children to stay with parents who were caught crossing the border illegally.

Long-simmering ethnic tensions in a party increasingly defined by identity politics could erupt if Nancy Pelosi’s mental decline forces her to bow out of her leadership of the Democrats’ House Caucus. With African-Americans the largest loyal base constituency, the fact that there has never been a black minority leader, much less speaker, the choice of her successor could split the party. Potentially at stake is the Speakership that could result if the longed-for Blue Wave produces a Democrat House majority.
