Saudi Arabia King MbS? Saudi King Salman was to hand crown to son MbS last week. CONSIDER. Perhaps MbS is the new king and has been consolidating power just not made public. King Salman shook up the house of Saud last spring when he made MbS Crown Prince. Who said Saudi needs to announce that? Saudi kings dont quit.
Saudi Arabia accuses Iran of supporting terrorism across the Middle East. The pillar of this coalition is inclusion, our common enemy is terrorism, not any religion, sect or race. The alliance includes Egypt, UAE, Bahrain, Afghanistan, Uganda, Somalia, Mauritania, Lebanon, Libya, Yemen and Turkey. ( My comment - Turkey? The alliance wont include Qatar, which is a sponsor of terror.)
Saudi Arabia Spring Nov 28, 2017 - This is a VERY well written article! Arabia had to be purged of corruption. tinyurl.com/y8twkf4r
Saudi Vision 2030 Nov 22, 2017 - Saudi Arabia Populist King in waiting. In Saudi Arabia, 11 princes and around 200 government officials were arrested November 4th by a newly announced anti-corruption committee headed by MbS - Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The arrests have been described as unprecedented. $100 billion has been accounted for as stolen from the Saudi Treasury.
MbS is attempting nothing less than the complete reboot of Saudi Arabia government and society. Saudi Vision 2030 calls for Saudi Arabia to become a more forceful regional power that is economically diversified and a member of the GDP club, while growing more socially tolerant and reconciled with the world. And he believes he needs full authority to pull this off. www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/11/22/saudi-arabias-populist-king-in-waiting-215857
Clouds are gathering Nov 27, 2017 - Israel wont tolerate Iran bases in Lebanon or Syria. Jerusalem will destroy all Iran facilities within 40 kilometers (25 miles) of Israeli Golan Heights. I DO NOT see that Israel will allow Iran BASE - anywhere in Lebanon or Syria.
Syrian President Bashar Assad offered Netanyahu a deal that would include a demilitarized zone stretching 40 kilometers from the border. Assad, Putin, Netanyahu agree to a demilitarized zone of up to 40 kilometers from the border in the Golan Heights as part of a comprehensive agreement. tinyurl.com/IDFxxSyr
Gog and Magog alignment Nov 23, 2017 - Russia, Iran, Turkey agree in Sochi on Syria peace. The leaders discussed ways to promote a peaceful settlement in Syria, including the return of refugees, humanitarian aid and prisoners exchange. ISIS in Syria have received a decisive blow. www.timesofisrael.com/russia-iran-turkey-agree-to-advance-syrian-peace
No headway Nov 23, 2017 - Israel demands all Iran and Hizballah forces quit the zone along the Syrian-Israeli border. Putin didnt convince Netanyahu to allow Iran/Hizballah terrorists on Golan border. As long as they are there, Israel cannot guarantee not to open fire if its border security is threatened. tinyurl.com/Put-Hez
Shadow gov Nov 25, 2017 - John Wells interview with former CIA Agent Shipp. increasing criminal activity in CIA Some CIA sabotaging President Trump’s cabinet. America is post-Republic since the coup Long interview, should wake up peeps! youtu.be/zCiGTdtiOf4
1,2 Watching Pelosi call Conyers an icon of American society as a defense to sexual harassment settlements showed that in democrats mind, even credible accusations backed up by cash payouts is not a firing offense. If it were, she would have demanded he step down.
3/ Instead, Pelosi called for "due process", though "process" is exactly what lead to the payouts in the first place. He had process - and he paid out. (Out of TAXpayer money!)
4/ The Democrats have officially fallen back to the Clinton playbook: A) Attack the Victim B) Dismiss the Allegation C) Stall for more time D) Let the Voters Decide
5/ Leaving these matters to law enforcement prosecutions, due process and the ballot box is a perfectly reasonable thing to want.
6/ The problem is that they have created the appearance of a double standard. An accusation is "disqualifying" for a political opponent but democrats.
7/ "Good for thee but not for me" is bad politics. Mitch McConnell and his group of favorites may soon be on the receiving end of this one, too.
8, 9 - it is fascinating McConnell made such a YUGE mistake. It is no surprise the Senate is loaded with sickos like Menendez and Franken. (and Mitch) Accusations alone shouldnt be disqualifying
10/ There is something dispiriting about letting "the voters" decide in an environment that is highly partisan. Districts are so gerrymandered to partisans it is hard (impossible?) to ask voters to swallow an opposition candidate w/ a basket of principles they oppose.
11,12 - Sadly, this is more a reflection on the Rule of Law than on our politics. If we had an efficient system for rooting out corruption and abuse of authority, trivial accusations could be sorted out in due course.
13,14 - Unfortunately, Pelosi gets to the heart of the problem: there is a perception that politicians are above the law. So a plea for due process sounds a lot like a call for no justice at all. And that is a seismic problem - creating an enormous awakening in our politics.
15, 16 - #DraintheSwamp isnt just about cutting spending, its about restoring fundamental fairness and virtue to politics. Trump is an imperfect vessel, but there will be other populists who follow and pick up the football to run with it.
17/ Everyone can see that our politics and our politicians are corrupt to the bone. Menendez actually got sitting Senators to come testify that there's nothing wrong with taking fancy hooker vacations to foreign countries with "friends".
18/ And that doing favors for your "friends" is perfectly normal and has *NOTHING* to do with the fancy hooker vacation.
19/ Fortunately, I think Americans have had enough. The "Whataboutism" isn't swaying anyone any more. More and more, the voters just want to get rid of the bad apples.
20, 21 - That means new politicians are coming and new rules. Hopefully new rules about hanging out with foreigners. New rules about hanging out with lobbyists.
22/ At the end of the day, if you lay down with dogs you get fleas. And for far too long we've let our politicians undermine the rule of law, laying down with dogs. /END
