Note: A friend of mine sent me this today with the following words: “We are post honor, post decency and post rules based society and into perhaps the final step before total collapse in the West now in my view. Floating on oil fumes.” I can only agree.
The world is a very dangerous place!
The country of Iran, as an example, is responsible for a bloody proxy war against Saudi Arabia in Yemen, trying to destabilize Iraq’s fragile attempt at democracy, supporting the terror group Hezbollah in Lebanon, propping up dictator Bashar Assad in Syria (who has killed millions of his own citizens), and much more. Likewise, the Iranians have killed many Americans and other innocent people throughout the Middle East. Iran states openly, and with great force, “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” Iran is considered “the world’s leading sponsor of terror.”
On the other hand, Saudi Arabia would gladly withdraw from Yemen if the Iranians would agree to leave. They would immediately provide desperately needed humanitarian assistance. Additionally, Saudi Arabia has agreed to spend billions of dollars in leading the fight against Radical Islamic Terrorism.
After my heavily negotiated trip to Saudi Arabia last year, the Kingdom agreed to spend and invest $450 billion in the United States. This is a record amount of money. It will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, tremendous economic development, and much additional wealth for the United States. Of the $450 billion, $110 billion will be spent on the purchase of military equipment from Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and many other great U.S. defense contractors. If we foolishly cancel these contracts, Russia and China would be the enormous beneficiaries – and very happy to acquire all of this newfound business. It would be a wonderful gift to them directly from the United States!
The crime against Jamal Khashoggi was a terrible one, and one that our country does not condone. Indeed, we have taken strong action against those already known to have participated in the murder. After great independent research, we now know many details of this horrible crime. We have already sanctioned 17 Saudis known to have been involved in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi, and the disposal of his body.
Representatives of Saudi Arabia say that Jamal Khashoggi was an “enemy of the state” and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, but my decision is in no way based on that – this is an unacceptable and horrible crime. King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman vigorously deny any knowledge of the planning or execution of the murder of Mr. Khashoggi. Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event – maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!
That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi. In any case, our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They have been a great ally in our very important fight against Iran. The United States intends to remain a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia to ensure the interests of our country, Israel and all other partners in the region. It is our paramount goal to fully eliminate the threat of terrorism throughout the world!
I understand there are members of Congress who, for political or other reasons, would like to go in a different direction – and they are free to do so. I will consider whatever ideas are presented to me, but only if they are consistent with the absolute security and safety of America. After the United States, Saudi Arabia is the largest oil producing nation in the world. They have worked closely with us and have been very responsive to my requests to keeping oil prices at reasonable levels – so important for the world. As President of the United States I intend to ensure that, in a very dangerous world, America is pursuing its national interests and vigorously contesting countries that wish to do us harm. Very simply it is called America First!
“The crime against Jamal Khashoggi was a terrible one,”
What crime? I only see international spooks claiming that an incident took place with the MSM quoting said Turkish and Western spooks. The Saudi spooks of course deny what all the other spooks are stating. So who are we to believe?
I simply don’t believe this story.
Exactly. One set of muppets killed another muppet. Now the western muppets are making this into a big deal. Since when does the west and its msm presstitutes care about life or humanity?
I don’t believe much about the story either. I believe that for certain ghouls eschatalogical purposes Gomer a.k.a Saudi Arabia must be forced into alliance with who the ghouls believe is the King of the North a.k.a Russia.
The ghouls a.k.a chosenites think Russia is the King of the north…but is the Khazarians who came with there arms to a land where men lived in peace without walls…there is no chance it can be true that the land of prophecy is seen at peace since their arrival…so the chosenites can’t see themselves as the monster which was predicted to fall upon that land of peace…Salem.
The Christian Zionists you are refering to are woefully uneducated and thereby mistaken. The king of the north, by whom they (mistakenly) mean Magog, is not Russia as many suppose, but refers to a king (historical figure) who lived witin the area of modern day Turkey. Figuratively, it may refer to the future ruler of that region on the map. The actual king of the north as referred to in the book of Daniel refers to the Greek king as the king of the south refers to the egyptian king.
There is no moral compass in the US.
Only parading and pretending. Obama and Hillary like.
Trump does not pretend.
At least Trump is less a degenerate honey tongue globalist compared to Obama.
Is it an issue for the Saker ?
Agree. It smells all over as just a new Skripal media hoax.
MAGA is dead. It lost its moral center.
This is a rationalization.
The Powerful USA could have quietly told the King, MBS has to go. Replace him.
With MBS demoted, the issue is solved. No one loses face. King protects his son, Trump protects the moral center of his MAGA.
Now, he’s now better than Bush-Rumsfeld-Cheney.
CIA came to a “finding”. That is not a guess. They agree within their own corrupt system, amoral as any on Earth, that this MBS gave the orders and oversaw the torture and killing of Khashoggi. They have enough proof.
Instead, Trump saw only $$$$ as the fulcrum for the relationship between US and SA.
He has double-crossed every key supporter, appointee and aide, and now he pissed on the MAGA moral center.
This amorality is not a surprise, except that it is a stupid decision also. He didn’t have to choose this path. A better, higher road could have been taken.
It shows that his “smarts” ain’t so smart.
A weak mind, a vapid soul, and an ego that must dominate and win in every transaction. This is a warning to all who have to deal with Trump and the Hegemon. Never think he won’t do something stupid. And always know he will do something amoral.

“Trump is a great Leader, not much as human being other than he loves his family and has always had a heart for hard working men and women. He had the right issues, the right slogan, and a vision that his voters wanted to hear over and over.
If you didn’t follow it closely, you got the MSM version or some revision from a distance.
He was f*cking brilliant as a campaigner. And he spent very little money. He actually helped the RNC raise hundreds of millions for the House and Senate and state organizations. He took very little money other than what came in huge in small donations from millions of voters who loved his moxie and NY style.”
Unfortunately, Trump may be as ignorant in foreign affairs as most Americans. It benefits the Empire to keep him in the know of only enough to steer him in their preffered direction. It is also very easy to do as He is a very busy and protected (from opposing influences) man. He also is highly intelligent. I would be willing to bet that he is speaking and acting on the information fed him, which he assumes to be true. My prayer is that his eyes would be open to the lies he is surrounded by and that he sees the truth, and that when he does, he would have the courage to stand for the truth, though it cost $$$$.
Here’s the politically incorrect abridged summary of Trump’s comments:
America First! … Saudi feudal monarchy/USA Best Friends Forever. Mo’ money, mo’ money, mo’ money…. Jamal Khashoggi murdered–sad face…. Mohammad bin Salman good. Russia/China/Iran bad!…. Israel First!
The more America open its mouth, the more absurdities spew out.
Its just Trump graping free money, a weak MBS depended on him is better than a stronger new leader. Simple as that.
While moraly despicible its a sound strategy.
Politics is the art of the possible and the MSM Deep State Amen Chorus Against MBS should be enough to give those here so willing to step up and “throw the first stone” ……at The Donald……some pause…..in venting their indignation.
It might be slightly more complicated than their emotions at any given moment.
“A sound strategy.” ???
Varg: You could be right!
Do exactly what your sworn enemies want you to do?
Almost certainly NOT right.
Some situations just suck. Good luck being president of anything and coming out of all situations you encounter……….. smelling like a rose!
The owners picked up a real lemon and told us to sell it any way we can. :-D
There are so many lies in this statement, it is really a depraved document. Called the democratically elected President of Syria a dictator “who has killed millions of his citizens”. Calling Iran the leading sponsor of Terror when the US has backed ISIS, Al-Qaeda in Syria, and the Muslim Brotherhood is insane. Iran leading the proxy war against KSA in Yemen? These are so ridiculous one wonders, is Trump insane or is he calculating that the MSM will back these lies because they think it is pro-Israel?
This is the way the US foreign policy has been conducted since 1913, Trump just being open about it. Have to agree with the Saker, things are coming to a climax.
I couldn’t have said it better! I was somewhat bewildered and saddened reading this statement. From start to finish it is filled with lies. What worries me even more is that many die hard Trump loyalists will inhale this falsehood and simply adopt what he has said as the truth.
My take is that the above text is satire, but with mentally unstable Pindos you never know.
Calm down, Craig and John. There is a deadly struggle going on between DJT and other forces in the US and the world and disinformation is used 100% by his enemies and about 60% by him.
If some of them start being put away in GITMO his percentage might go down a little.
In the meantime, the more damage he does to those out to kill or impeach him, the better for humanity.
If ALL he accomplishes is clearing the way for someone else to be in a better position to utter the truth because the MSM and Deep State/Empire Mind Control collapses significantly more .than it already has BECAUSE OF DJT….not ANY of us……., that’s a million times more than all of us together are in a position to accomplish in ten lifetimes.
I actually saw him say it, on the White House lawn as he flew off to Florida. Insane lies, didn’t flinch once. Is there some kind of realpolitik behind it? Maybe, but all the filth he spewed out about Iran and Assad is simply vile, despicable. And the gushing about those “great defense contractors.” Nauseating.
Maga muppets are funny, contorsions galore explaining their front goy multi-dimensional chess… Trump is so primitive, destroying columns of the exceptional temple with surprisingly linear cretinism. When deplorables elect a president and send him forth, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending the greatest of them all. All that winning is HUGE ! Blood and soil murikkkans must be tired at this point.
How few people know the house of Saudi originates from Syria…east of the Euphrates…and what is wahhabism other than the twin of talmudism…the Saudi seeks his ancestral estate…and this factor has not been understood by analysts at all
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard stated that trump is now the saudi’s’ bitch.
Not far off for a democrat who does not make the headlines.
Trump TORCHED by Tulsi Gabbard for Being “Saudi Arabia’s B***h”
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says Trump is “Saudi Arabia’s bitch” in tweet
The hand that types the message is the hand of POTU$ but the voice that dictates is the voice of Israel. Israel and K$A are allies, since both were created simultaneously by the Anglo Zio Capitalist oil grab in the Middle East, popularly known as WW1. And now little Izzie is trying to get big dumb Uncle $cam to fight yet another war against yet another Izzie paranoid “existential threat”, Iran. And backward royal retards who act as CEO of K$A on behalf of the Rothschild oil empire are doing likewise; the difference being that the K$A retards are paying for the war with their own money, while smart little Izzie is paying with Uncle’s “blood and treasure”.
Appalling and bone chilling at the same time… :(
We believe Jamal Khashoggi’s head is in a vault at Mar-a-Lago right now one of the many gifts
Saudi Arabia has bestowed on America’s fake president
We have covered for the Saudi’s long enough. In 2003, the initial FBI investigation of 9/11 found
Saudi Arabia fully complicit, their government and royals at the highest level, working in concert
with Israel, prominent organized crime figures and traitors at Washington’s highest levels. I have
seen the reports. They are real. We needed to invade Saudi Arabia in September 2001 and when
America gets a president with guts, we will do exactly that.
Did Saudi Arabia Just Nuke Yemen? Mushroom Cloud Video – In English
Just pretend it’s all a monty python movie and it all starts to make sense.
The point of Monty Python movies is that they do not make sense, and yet they reflect reality.
Monty Python have become redundant.
Very interesting investigation by Jake Morphonious of Blackstone Intelligence
I could only read first 10 words and fell sick. Only true statement in it is that is a pure lie.
If read properly, it actually makes sense. I will attempt to rewrite first paragraph as it should be, opposite of what is stated in it.
USA is a very dangerous country!
The country of Saudi Arabia, as an example, is responsible for a bloody proxy war against Iran in Yemen, trying to destabilize Iraq’s attempt to kick out US terrorists, supporting the terror group ISIS in Syria and Iraq, propping up dictator King Abdullah in SA (who has killed millions of his own citizens), and much more. Likewise, the Saudis have killed many Arabs, Christians and other innocent people throughout the Middle East. USA states openly, and with great force, “Death to Iran!” and “Death to Syria” USA and SA is considered “the world’s leading sponsor of terror.”
Someone should finish this…
In the mean time, enjoy this marvel by Public Enemy:
Always look at the bright side. No Hillary. Trump is controlled. He has enemies everywhere. He has very little initiative ability. He’s a puppet on strings, a hand up his butt for puppet moves, strings on him as a marionette.
As for change in analysis, Trump changed, ergo, we reevaluate what is not what we hoped for.
Also, the description you quote from me referred directly to 2016 Trump. Not 2018.
Glad you database my words.
And by the way, he is a great leader. He’s barely President, but he does lead well.
We know now his pluses and minuses and can act and think accordingly based on the facts and events of the past two years.
Saudi Arabia would gladly withdraw from Yemen if the Iranians would agree to leave.
Yeah, right. Exactly when would the Saudis withdraw from Yemen? After killing all the Houthis and installing a puppet government?
Another point I’ve been pondering. The Saudis claim to have reserves of over 600 billion barrels of oil. If they think that Yemen’s 4 billion barrels are worth stealing, just how many barrels of oil do the Saudis really have left?
One of the Righteous Yanks:
“Virginia State senator Richard Black: “In my lifetime, there has never been a greater force of evil than the terror rained down on Syria by foreign nations. Its cruelty and savagery have had no bounds. Nonetheless, Syria has defended itself against the economic might of 2/3 of the world’s great powers and has beaten them all. As a career military officer and student of military affairs, I cannot explain how Syria could accomplish this if it were not the will of God.” (He’s one of Ziad’s heroes. Mike).
From SyrPer analyst Canthama #280846
“Trump’s recent amoral statement on the case, which basically laid down US foreign policy since WWII by _all_ US presidents: a policy of double standards, money buys paradise, my dictator is a good dictator etc….
for that read Greenwald’s article below, very good one.”
SypPer quotes the CIA as verification of this story. That is ridiculous. Greenwald is totally compromised aswell. This whole story is built upon sources that are intelligence agencies and broadcast by the mainstream media — those facts alone should make one pause for thought. Any altmedia site that does not question this story is doing no-one any favours. Don’t be misdirected, used and abused.
This from the president of a country that has been known to drone bomb its own citizens? The same country that drops an average of 121 drone bombs on civilians in 8 countries daily?
The only really curious thing is – why is ‘America-only’ supposed to punish Saudi Arabia? It not like all nations are lining up to cut ties with the KSA over this affair.
