Just Once, Could a “Bombshell” Report NOT Conclude the Obvious?

March 1, 2021

So last week, at a cost of ??? millions of taxpayer $$$, our intelligence agencies released a report that revealed…

Oh, wait, are you sitting down? Do you think your heart is strong enough to stand the shock? Well, OK, if you’re sure, here it is:

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman approved (you may gasp here) the brutal murder, dismemberment and poofing (nary a fingernail has ever been found) of U.S. resident and Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi because MBS was butt-hurt that Khashoggi was critical of his country.

Like every other crime during the Trump years, from Day One we knew exactly who had to be behind this. What pisses me off is I haven’t seen a word addressing why Trump and sonny-boy Jared Kushner continued to cozy up to MBS like their BFF.

In particular, I want to know — to the PENNY — how much largesse in the aftermath of Khashoggi’s death MBS lavished on Kushner for his unwavering devotion.

As with everything else Trump has befouled, Biden must clean up this mess and hold MBS to account, for whatever that’s worth, because it’s all moot at this point.

Yet again, Trump and Kush face no penalty for abetting a murder because Trump made sure he left our federal justice system a smoldering ruin that lacks the manpower or will to go after him.

It makes me wish I lived in France. They just nailed their former president, Nicolas Sarkozy, and sentenced him to a year in prison, with two more years suspended.

What galls me is that the charges Sarkozy got convicted on sound like a typical day in the Oval Office for Trump. But since Trump and Bill Barr made our Justice Department an extension of their own criminality, Trump’s probably laughing his ass off that Sarkozy was dumb enough to get caught.

CATS WORKING PREDICTION TIME…

Congress is yakking about establishing a “9/11-style” commission to investigate the January 6 sacking of the Capitol. Naturally, Trump’s Treason Cult (a.k.a. Republicans) are clamoring to make it partisan, with an equal number of their ilk on board so they can sabotage it to a fare-thee-well.

Should that commission happen — and let’s face it, it will because it allows Congress kick that can into the gutter and keep traitors like Hawley and Cruz in their midst for another year or two — it should have NO politicians, just impartial, experienced investigators who will uncover nothing but the facts.

I know, what have I been smoking, right?

But I’m going to leap ahead and potentially save years and ??? millions of taxpayer $$$ by revealing what the 1/6/21 report will conclude, right here, right now. Ready?

Someone in the White House — on Trump’s direct order — commanded someone at the Pentagon to do NOTHING on January 6 and let the riot run its course. Trump was super-stoked because he’d been hyping on Twitter for weeks how “wild” that day was going to be. He’d even erected a tent on the White House grounds to host his pre-riot party.

Trump was jonesing to see how high his speech would jack his cult, and how far they’d go to show their fealty. Then he’d watch it all on TV live as it happened. The more people they murdered on camera, the better.

Having more police or the National Guard there would just ruin everything, and Trump refused to allow that to happen.

Getting Congress — and maybe even Mike Pence — whacked as Trump headed out the door would be the crowning glory of his presidency. If he couldn’t remain in power, at least he could have revenge.

That’s the bottom line. And we all know Trump will never be convicted or spend a moment in prison for inciting insurrection because he made treason fashionable and Congress is fine with that.


Saudi Solution is Simple: Show Us Khashoggi’s Body

October 22, 2018

Trump and Kushner are still playing coy over whether they believe Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) ordered the killing of Virginia resident and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi on October 2.

One story is that Khashoggi synced his Apple watch to the iPhone he left with his fiancée outside the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul, which saved a file to the cloud of what the watch recorded happening inside the building. However, the BBC dissected the gadgets’ capabilities and debunked the likelihood of this.

Turkish authorities claim to have audio and video of Khashoggi’s murder. They’re reluctant to share this information and reveal the true extent of their surveillance practices. Understandable. But they’ve released plenty of gruesome details.

Meanwhile, the Saudis have been using Trump as their stooge to float a series of denials and fanciful lies, including that 60-year-old Khashoggi got into a fistfight and was accidentally strangled when somebody put him in a chokehold.

Based on Turkey’s revelations, it appears Khashoggi was ambushed by 15 Saudi men equipped with a bone saw, flown in specifically for the occasion. Once Khashoggi entered the consulate, he was tortured, apparently had fingers cut off, then drugged and dismembered while still alive by a man who told the others it was good to listen to music whenever butchering a person.

If none of this happened, the Saudis should be able to produce Khashoggi’s completely intact corpse.

But they haven’t. They can’t even say where it is.

Instead, there’s video of a body double wearing a fake beard and Khashoggi’s clothes (but not his shoes) leaving by the consulate’s back door with another man. Cameras also caught the double entering a public restroom and emerging in his original clothes, sans beard, then dumping a shopping bag (containing Khaghoggi’s clothes, presumably) in a dumpster.

A small handful of Republican senators (Paul, Sasse, Corker and Graham) have professed outrage, but we know they’ll be dancing in a chorus line behind Trump when he soon kisses MBS on the lips and declares his everlasting devotion to Saudi Arabia.

The truth is that Trump is personally terrified that sanctioning the Saudis will cut off the sweet, sweet flow of cash into his own pocket; instead, he feigns concern over losing a $110 billion arms sale that was tentative at best.

The world sees an impotent United States making excuses for unimaginable barbarity on a man Trump keeps reminding us only lived here on a green card, as if his life mattered less than any blond-haired, blue-eyed native redneck.

The Saudis may have done the killing, but this blood is all over Trump. Without his daily rants about the press being “the enemy of the people” and rally ravings about how he loves to see journalists body-slammed, encouraging his moronic supporters to hate the legitimate news media, he sends a deadly signal.

Bottom line: The House of Trump loves terrorizing journalists. The Saudis gave him the gift of showing what can happen to anyone who dares to question or criticize the powers that be. In Trump’s eyes, that’s a plus, not a problem.
