  1. I AGREE with everything he says.
    Except KSA’s Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman being involved in the Khashoggi murder.

    Who had the most to lose in his murder: Mohamed bin Salman.
    Who had the most to gain? Erdogan and vengeance is best served cold aka Prince Alweed Tallal.

    If Mohamed Bin Salman had wanted to get rid of Khashoggi, he had many other quiet ways at his disposal and would have carried out elsewhere, but certainly not in his own Consulate.

    This guy Tallal, a major Muslim Brotherhood lover, was so humiliated by being imprisoned and sleeping on the floor on the KSA Ritz Carlton and then having a good chunk of his money seized by Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman… Arab vengeance to the max to get rid of the Crown Prince and his reforms.

  3. Just in case you missed this last week:

    From what I have gathered, this politician (that was arrested) is part of the former ruling far-leftist, post-modernist government the president of which was lawfully arrested and removed from office on a warrant issued by the supreme court, because said leftist president planned to ‘amend’ the constitution to concentrate power in his hands. This happened in 2009, and is commonly referred to in the leftist media as a coup.

    Said president is still plotting a return to power, or so I read.

    This would be supporting evidence for the assertion that Venezuela’s leftists, and, by extension, Iran, are the originating force behind this particular invasion. Again, the unholy left-green alliance…

    Yet, once it got under way, other organisations have lent a helping hand. Can it be a coincidence that so many of the migrants are wearing identical green-with-white logo or white-with-green logo baseball caps?

    Some have been reported to be carrying US AID bags… though most are not carrying any bags or food or supplies whatsoever. Is this not suspicious?

    Yes, there are reports of raided grocery stores along the way, but, most have almost no baggage, not even chargers for the phones they are clearly using.

    Where is all that?

    While we do not see it, there has got to bee very substantial infrastructure to support this march. Truckloads of baggage, knapsacks, blankets/sleeping bags, water and food. It is not possible for a march like this to be carried out without such infrastructure.

    Why do we not see this?

    Why are no questions being asked about that?

    When next you get a chance, please ask Brad about the support infrastructure necessary in general and where it is in this instance in particular.

    Could the key to stopping this mob march be in focusing on the supporting infrastructure? Could a crackdown on the organizations within the US which are monetarily or materially supporting this invasive mob help reduce the size of the ‘caravan’?

      • Thank you.

        But this also suggest a possible non-violent solution: send in a team to disable the supporting vehicles.

        No injuries, no loss of life – just sugar in the gas tanks or something comparable – and the supply lines are gone…which leads to the dissolution of the whole problem.

        • No injuries, no loss of life – just sugar in the gas tanks or something comparable – and the supply lines are gone…which leads to the dissolution of the whole problem.

          This worthwhile countermeasure only has a further shelf life of a few days. Any of the major transport vehicles need to be disabled immediately in order to keep the largest caravan numbers the farthest away from America’s southern border (this includes alternative vehicles like tractors, etc.).

            • Also, a mob this size cannot survive ‘a few days’ interruption in their supply of water, food, and other necessities.

              Especially water.

              No supplies means the ‘caravan’ has to break up in order to survive.

              Divide and conquer…

            • But, not beyond the US capacity.

              Totally agreed. Our military has plenty of soldiers that speak Mexican Spanish to perfection.

  4. Vice-Prez of Venezuela is Tareck El Aissami, Syria-Lebanese origin. Traffics in documents, drugs, people.

    Diplomatic visits by top of food-chain Iranian officials: access to Venezuelan territory for development of solid rocket-fuel production facilities?
    About rabid Ahmadinejad’s visit in 2012:
    https://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/07/world/middleeast/iranian-leader-set-to-visit-allies-in-latin-america.html

    IRIB – Iran’s Spanish 24-hour news – saturates the region.
    People in the caravan told reporters from Judicial Watch that they learned about it on the news. A great deal of coverage, including logistics of where to meet, what to bring, etc.

  5. RE: Khashoggi
    I noted in Readers’ Links that PTrump has been increasingly disappointed by our Gulf “allies”.

    Nothing seems to align with expectations. Maybe Robert Spencer or Mj. Coughlin could’ve given Potus a better sense of what’s realistic in tard-kakir accords than the islamophiles he chose to surround himself. (Maybe not: Bibi and Dore Gold get swept up in wishful thinking because they’re born optimists, determined to remain positive against all odds.)

    For one thing, they aren’t all that allied with each other, let alone us. An “Arab NATO”? Westphalian nonsense in these parts. Ceremonies produce logos reliably, that’s about it. It’s hard to factor in pursuit of tribal interests and different notions of shared destiny, let alone duty.

    They’ve failed to live up to their commitments to provide boots on the ground to replace ours. They’re niggardly with dispensing any of their enormous diplomatic leverage. Just as they’ll use slaves when they can more than afford wage laborers, they’ll withhold support of the President’s initiatives. Just because.

    Worst of all for this President, they’re not coughing up the big bucks. A “Memorandum of Understanding” isn’t a binding contract. Billions of dollars of “understanding” could vanish because of one offensive tweet. Ask Canada.

    Money is coming in dribs and drabs. Right after Khashoggi made headlines, the Kingdom sent $100 million that was overdue. (Timing? That’s like the Turk’s hostage diplomacy) Are we looking at $110-140 billion? That’s not entirely clear. (Actually, that’s a wild exaggeration, but let’s not get into that….)

    Here’s an article that gets some of it right:
    The U.S.-Saudi Alliance Was in Trouble Long Before Jamal Khashoggi’s Death
    https://warontherocks.com/2018/10/the-u-s-saudi-alliance-was-in-trouble-long-before-jamal-khashoggis-death/

      • An interesting hypothesis I came across regarding the Saudi response to the Kashoggi affair…

        Scott Adams – ‘the Dilbert guy’ – is a trained hypnotist and a master of persuation. In his today’s periscope (OK – long) he proposes a hypothesis that there is a significant cultural difference between ‘the West’ and ‘the Arab culture’ when it comes to ‘lying’.

        This is a bit how it goes:

        In the West, people say lies expecting them to be believed, in order to deceive.

        In the Arabic culture, people often say blatant lies that they know their audience knows are blatant lies, with zero expectation of them to be believed, but with the expectation that they will be accepted to let the side telling the lie to ‘save face’.

        This could explain much about the Saudi response to the Kashoggi affair:

        • In the Arabic culture, people often say blatant lies that they know their audience knows are blatant lies, with zero expectation of them to be believed, but with the expectation that they will be accepted to let the side telling the lie to ‘save face’.

          Once again, anybody who seeks to understand this convoluted “culture” could do little better than read, “Face”, by Sarah Rosenberg. The almost irreconcilable differences between low-context and high-context cultures will remain a source of conflict (both violent and ideological) for many decades into the future.

  6. @yucki
    Telling the truth is not one of the seven laws of Noah, so we are in error when we project the value that Jews and Christians place on it.

    • You’re right.

      Judeo-Christian ideals of morality aren’t universal; projections are inappropriate and can lead to trouble. That’s something Western observers, policy-makers, and even high-price image consultants don’t get.

      All the puffery of MbS in the West – especially obvious in social media popular with PTrump’s base – has projected our morality onto his image. For example, the concern to avoid collateral damage (sanctity of individual life), a Sunni “brotherhood” that transcends tribal affiliation, the elevation of Israelis as partners.

      While you can find instances where such motivations might seem to fit, they’re incidental and it’s disingenuous to ascribe them to this bedouin chieftain. A plaster saint is doomed, erstwhile fans disappointed.

      Prof. Mordechai Kedar wrote in another context:
      “[A] very important aspect of Middle Eastern culture, one which has no counterpart in Western culture – the varied nuances of speech.

      “Western culture takes what is said at face value, for example: If I say that I agree with the person I am talking to, it means that I have listened to what he says, thought about it and have decided to accept his opinion.

      “The West has faith in the sincerity of the person talking, believes what he says and accepts it as is. After all, there is free speech and anyone can say what is on their mind, so that when someone says something, it is what he really thinks and feels.

      “In the Middle East, however, everything anyone say[s] has three layers: The upper and visible layer is the content of what has been said, the middle one is what the person speaking really means and the lowest is what he is hiding.

      “While hearing someone’s words, a listener in the Middle East tries to penetrate to the hidden layers, understand the real intention of the speaker and reveal what is being hidden from him.”
