Saudis recruited Twitter workers to spy on critics of Saudi regime, U.S. charges – NBC News

A couple of things here.

I guess I may have been one of the people that was spied on. I have been very very critical of the crown Prince MBS who ordered the murder of Washington Post reporter an American resident khashoggi. This murder was allegedly greenlit by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. This is indicative of why the United States of America should not be in bed with Saudi Arabia. they no longer hold oil over our heads so why are we still so close to a regime that murders and tortures there citizenry. One can be stoned by the Saudi regime for being gay. I always thought being stoned was people throwing rocks at you. Nope that’s not it. They dig a pit they put you in it and they slowly lower weights on top of you slowly crushing you to death. This is the government that we are friendly with.

Sure governments, even friendly ones, spy on each other. But using spies within an organization like Twitter to get information on Americans, individual American citizens is beyond the pale.

Saudi Arabia Says Iran ‘Unquestionably Sponsored’ Attack On Oil Facilities – NPR

Since my teenage years, and I am 65, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been a thorn in the side of the world. I remember when they formed OPEC and then shut off the fuel supply to the United States. I remember standing in lines trying to get to my college classes type of hat the gas needed to get me there. They have been bad players from the beginning and they continue to be so. They are cruel to their people and let them live in poverty even though the royal family lives in luxury that most of us cannot even comprehend.

Let us not forget Mohammed bin Salman, the current Prince of Saudi Arabia ordered the murder of an American journalist, we will not forget khashoggi.

And so now in order to start a pot Saudi Arabia says that Iran definitely sponsored this attack on their oil facilities. Were they a name sponsor or just one that wanted to be in the credits? They can’t point to Iran as the launcher of the missiles because they were launched from Iraq granted Iran has a lot of reasons to do this to Saudi Arabia but it is not enough of a reason for us to jump into a war once again in the middle East and make more generations hate us well into the future.

this is hard for me to say because I really despise them haven’t but Trump is actually doing the more measured in response to this incident. we have oil reserves in the United States that are kept specifically for this kind of strategic need. Trust me the Saudi Arabian government is going to use all its wealth to rebuild a refined race. And in the meantime do United States is going to make some extra much-needed dollars on the foreign trade front.

The Saudi Arabians are well-known to say they will fight with a ran with the last American soldier’s blood.we have sent him so much in military prowess why aren’t they using it themselves? Why are they doing a proxy war in Yemen? Why do they want the United States to shed blood of our soldiers before they even put their toe into the pool?

The world right now is a tinderbox and resembles what history has shown us the world look like prior to Major Wars. I know I don’t have the appetite for a war and I am sure that the majority of the American people do not as well. If Benjamin netanyahu is actually taken out of office and Israel I see a little bit of the marched War slowing down because we might finally have a breath of fresh air from an election.

Attacks on crucial Saudi oil sites threaten to renew Gulf tensions – NBC News

If Trump and Kushner were not in bed with the Saudi Prince I would think that this may have been an attack orchestrated by the US. Overnight the United States became the largest reservoir of oil in the world. Prices of oil have gone up by 15% overnight. This is going to cripple the Saudi economy.

I don’t think that Iran had any reason to do an attack on the Saudis right now. The US was in talks to soften sanctions on Iran that Trump and post. Iran’s economy needs this influx of much-needed cash. But then of course Trump negotiates buy a tweet. It’s funny, for a man who campaigned saying that President Obama was too open about troop movements and the search, Trump seems to be an open book if you just follow him on Twitter. This is not a way for our government to be run but of course I think everybody in this country sees that. May we make it until 2021 and I hope he actually leaves office.

Trump steps up attacks on progressive congresswomen, says they ‘hate our country’ and Israel – NBC News

Just like a lot of things this President does not understand what patriotism is. He’s truly ignorant about what it means to be the citizen of a country. This is the definition of a patriot:

Trump thinks just because he says it it’s right. Unfortunately he has now lied over 12,000 times in office and so truly it’s hard to tell what he believes other than the fact he will try to remain in office under any circumstance. He loves dictators and wants to be one. So when he attacks these Congress people he’s attacking the foundation of our country. Freedom of speech is the first amendment to our constitution and yet he seems to want to defend the 2nd amendment which kills people a lot more.

I support Israel but not above my country. My dad worked for the state of Israel and I think he would feel the same way. We are Americans proud citizens of the United States of America. Israel is an ally but just like all allies they can do wrong. Israel is being run by a corrupt government and there is so many things going wrong with them that it is hard for me as an American to support everything that comes out of Netanyahu’s mouth. What has being patriotic for the United States been synonymous with being patriotic for Israel? It’s perverting what patriotism is and trying to divide our nation. Jews see what’s happening with the children in cages and it brings back horrible memories of the Holocaust.

just because Trump came from a white country and he imports his wives from Slavic countries doesn’t mean he is not an immigrant just like 99% of us in the US. When he starts showing me his native American status then perhaps I will change my point of view but until then stop telling people they should leave our country, people who say that the other should leave their country should be the ones leaving the country.

Trump Officials Prepare to Bypass Congress to Sell Weapons to Gulf Nations – NYT

Do you remember when do United States promoted democracy across the globe? It wasn’t that long ago, like in 2016. Now we have a government that praises dictators and welcomes them into the White House with open arms. Now we have a government that believes liars like Putin and Mohammed Bin Salman.now we have a government that says there are good people on both sides when white nationalist kill someone in Charlottesville.

We are not used to selling arms, We are in the arms Dealer to the world. Of course we never had a former Boeing executive as the acting Secretary of Defense before. Selling arms to other countries has a process.and the process needs to go through Congress but this President and his administration believe they are above the law. let’s see how the spineless republicans in Congress hold up the power of their branch of government, I have very little faith they will.

So let’s all bask in the orb of Darkness that is descending upon a country under this Administration. The little boy that never grew up, Jared Kushner, is having his day. John Bolton knows that this is going to provoke Iran. So everybody’s having their cake and eating it too.

Watch “Trump Turns on Allies, Stands by Saudi Arabia: A Closer Look” on YouTube

He watches Sean hannity every night and then like a little kid calls his idol.

the only problem is that Sean hannity seems to have I’m almost finish like fixation on Trump’s pee tape. If you watch the video you’ll see how many times hannity mentions it in his show. The Tangerine nightmare cannot like this. We’re talking about 20 times it’s been mentioned. I, unfortunately, have MSNBC on all the time and they rarely talk about it. Fox News and Sean hannity their highest rated show talk about it all the time.

Enjoy the video and a very very Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

Mueller probing donations with foreign connections to Trump inauguration: ABC News EXCLUSIVE

Follow the money, that’s the Mantra of prosecutors when they’re looking at Rico cases. Well when you have the Trump crime family in the white house we have a giant RICO case.

26 million dollars of the Inaugural Committee funds went to the first ladies friend who then became a member of her staff. Money came from Saudi Arabia who wants to become a nuclear power. Money came from all different sources including Russia to the inaugural and where did the money go?

Speaking of the money where did all the money go that was paid to Michael Cohen? Why would he need to take a second mortgage on his in-laws house when he had all this money coming in? It’s a big mystery.

Never mind, it’s not a mystery they are Crooks.

Nuclear Saudi Arabia May Be Inevitable, Trump Tells CNN-Israel News Haaretz.com

Saudia Arabia made from the outside seem like a good Ally of the United States. But in fact they are sworn enemy of Israel. And they’re having nuclear weapons to me is just as a grievous as ever and having them. And yeah Donald Trump who seems to have absolutely no knowledge of geopolitics thanks that Saudi Arabia will have nuclear weapons. Israel certainly does not want a nuclear Saudi Arabia. I believe the picture that they chose in the article from Israel’s leading news Outlet screams to the fact that they do not like Trump.

Saudi Arabia cuts off relations with Iran, recalls diplomats in dispute over execution – LA Times

The Saudi regime seems to be in a self destruct mode. First it floods the market with cheap oil. Then it attacks Yemen and a Viet Nam style quagmire for themselves. And then this weekend they execute 47 people hoping that’s one of those 47 would be noticed. But he was one of the beloved and demons and repercussions are being felt throughout the Middle East.
