Death of a dissident: Saudi Arabia and the rise of the mobster state John R Bradley — The Spectator

The fate of Khashoggi has at least provoked global outrage, but it’s for all the wrong reasons. We are told he was a liberal, Saudi progressive voice fighting for freedom and democracy, and a martyr who paid the ultimate price for telling the truth to power. This is not just wrong, but distracts us from understanding what the incident tells us about the internal power dynamics of a kingdom going through an unprecedented period of upheaval. It is also the story of how one man got entangled in a Saudi ruling family that operates like the Mafia. Once you join, it’s for life, and if you try to leave, you become disposable.

Morrison Must Tear up Paris Agreement — Peta Credlin, Sunday Telegraph

The one thing Peta Credlin doesn’t mention when writing about handing over $4 billion to the Global Climate Fund, is that because of our $500 billion + debt, that $4 billion, by necessity, will be borrowed money.
“..The Paris Agreement is not about the environment; it is about de-industrialising the West and imposing a ‘moral tax’ on nations that used fossil fuels to build wealth over the past two centuries and key in facilitating this is the new $100 billion global climate change fund..”

Brett Kavanaugh Meets Saul Alinsky And Rule 13

Worth noting too that both Obama and Hillary Clinton are two of Alnisky’s fawning acolytes and Clinton actually wrote her end of college thesis on Alinsky and was privy to his Rules for Radicals manuscript before it was published.
