Saudi Aramco IPO Will Not Save Kingdom

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) has staked his country’s future on selling a 5% stake in Saudi Aramco, the most valuable asset it has.

And it is his hope that this IPO will help finance the country’s turnaround making it less dependent on oil revenue.

It’s been trying to do this for three years and was ready to pull the trigger when the Houthi rebels in North Yemen pulled theirs and damaged major Aramco facilities at Ab Qaiq in August.

SCOOP: CIA, FBI Informant Was Washington Post Source For Russiagate Smears

The Federalist has learned that the now-outed CIA and FBI informant Stefan Halper served as a source for Washington Post reporter David Ignatius, providing more evidence that the intelligence community has co-opted the press to push anti-Trump conspiracy theories.

In addition, an email recently obtained by The Federalist from the MI5-connected Christopher Andrew bragging that his long-time friend Ignatius has the “‘inside track’ on Flynn” adds further confirmation of this conclusion.

Kushner gave Saudi Crown Prince Bin Salman permission to arrest Khashoggi: report

Troops went back in and the story is out.

US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner gave permission to his friend, Saudi Arabia’s de-facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) to arrest the dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi before he was brutally murdered last year, a whistleblower alleges.

Weekly British magazine The Spectator said investigators on the US House Intelligence Committee were aware of the whistleblower's claims and were planning to dig further into them.

According to The Spectator, the Turkish intelligence intercepted a call between Kushner and bin Salman, and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan then used it to force Trump to withdraw his troops from northern Syria.

ACLU Sues FBI And Other Agencies, Defending Privacy Rights Of Americans Against Facial Recognition

By Aaron Kesel

The ACLU has sued the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other federal agencies, making claims that the government is improperly withholding information on how it uses a facial recognition database on millions of Americans. The civil rights organization also asks for a “federal court to intervene and order the FBI and related agencies to turn over all records concerning their use of face recognition technology,” according to a legal document...

The ACLU lawsuit names the FBI, Justice Department and Drug Enforcement Administration, alleging the agencies “failed to produce any responsive documents” in response to a Freedom of Information Act request...

700+ American Doctors Were Given Over $1M Each From Big Pharma To Push Drugs and Devices

Tulsi Votes for Impeachment Rules and You’re Surprised?

Tulsi Gabbord, member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Hawaii’s 2nd district [Note 1], voted today for the rules package to conduct an impeachment hearing of President For Life Donald J. Trump.

This has caused more weirdness on Twitter such as:

https://t.co/CTsffUCmdH Very disappointed in @TulsiGabbard for voting for the impeachment measure today. I thought Gbbard was a better person than this & she wasn’t a partisan hack out to destroy Trump, I was incorrect. @realDonaldTrump #DemocratCoup #VoteDemocratsOutOfOffice2020

Yes, she said only last month that the phone call with the Ukrainian President didn’t make a “compelling” case for impeachment. But that’s so last month after all!

Viral Meme Campaign Keeps Jeffrey Epstein Story Alive

By John Vibes

This August, the disgraced billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein allegedly killed himself while awaiting an extremely high-profile trial. However, as soon as word of his death hit the news, there was widespread doubt and skepticism about the official story behind his death.

Despite the odd circumstances behind Epstein’s alleged suicide, the story quickly disappeared from the news. Meanwhile, the many victims in the case appear to be losing their shot at seeing any justice. Luckily, the internet has not forgotten about the case, and it is not willing to let everyone else forget so soon either...

The Real US Mission in Syria

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

US involvement in Syria has nothing to do with regional peace, stability and security, nothing to do with combating ISIS.

It’s all about killing a nation, destroying its sovereignty, partitioning it for easier control, removing its legitimate leadership, installing puppet rule, plundering it, exploiting its people, eliminating an Israeli rival, isolating Iran, and enriching the US military, industrial, security complex from endless aggression.

As protests rock Baghdad and Beirut, Iran digs in

As governments in Iraq and Lebanon stagger and stumble under huge waves of popular protest, powerful factions loyal to Iran are pushing to quash political upheaval which challenges Tehran’s entrenched influence in both countries.

Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri has resigned and the government of Iraq’s Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi has been pushed to the brink of collapse.

Both governments have enjoyed backing from the West. But they have also relied on the support of political parties affiliated with powerful Iran-backed Shi’ite armed groups, keeping allies of Tehran in key posts.

That reflects the relentless rise of Iranian influence among Shi’ite communities across the Middle East, since Tehran formed the militant group Hezbollah in Lebanon in 1982 and after Saddam Hussein was toppled in Iraq in 2003.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to legitimately ask; to what extent is the US involved with this unrest, leading, it is hoped by the anti-Iran forces, to destabilization in Iraq; Lebanon; and ultimately, Tehran?!?

The Lynching of the Charismatic Geek

The original sin of Julian Assange was the same as that of Galileo Galilei. Galileo sinned by revealing to the people things the elite already knew or at least surmised, but wished to keep secret from the masses, in order not to shake the people’s faith in the official truth. Assange did the same thing with the formation of WikiLeaks The official version of reality was challenged. All lies should be exposed. By far the most sensitive targets of his wide-ranging reality revelations were the lies, the hypocrisy, the inhuman brutality of the United States in its wars of global hegemony. To Assange, these things were simply wrong.

At first, WikiLeaks attracted a great deal of popular attention and even acclaim. Julian Assange became famous. He was a geek, but he didn’t look like a geek. Tall, handsome, striking with his nearly white hair, Julian was something strange: a charismatic geek.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am very concerned that when the man gets back to the US for his "Show Trial/Star Chamber Treatment, that he will die very soon after that from one of a plethora of US-weaponized diseases, as have, most probably, other truth tellers to society.

IN KUWAIT, SLAVES ARE BOUGHT AND SOLD ON INSTAGRAM

“You can wake her up at 5AM, she won't complain.”

Slavery is one of many industries made more efficient by Silicon Valley, and specifically, Facebook-owned Instagram.

A new BBC investigation reveals the widespread online sale of human beings in the mideast for domestic labor. The buyers and sellers use services from Instagram, Facebook, Apple, and Google to facilitate slavery transactions.

Housekeepers and nannies are purchased and sold as slaves through Instagram, promoted using hashtags, and promoted on other apps in Google Play and Apple's App Store.

These workers live their lives in Kuwait mostly behind closed doors, invisible and with no rights to protest abuse by their employer/enslavers.

Excerpt:

After being alerted to the issue, Facebook said it had banned one of the hashtags involved.

Google and Apple said they were working with app developers to prevent illegal activity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The moral degeneracy of those who have signed off on these practices, in spite of their alleged "virtue signalling" by deplatforming conservative voices, it is painfully apparent, from this BBC report, that Facebook/Apple/Instagram/Google still have zero problems facilitating slavery, if the price for such services is right.

And do not believe for one second, that the owners of these tech giants "really don't know what is going on here": Sergei Bryn; Tim Cook; Mark Zuckerberg, you all have some explaining to do, particularly to your shareholders, and it has to start with deplatforming those sites which enable slavery in Kuwait in the 21st century, and right the hell now!!

Warning to NATO: Russian Navy Deploys Ten Submarines to North Atlantic for Massive Combat Exercises

The Russian Navy has deployed 10 submarines from a range of classes to the northern Atlantic Ocean for large scale military exercises. The drills will involve eight nuclear powered submarines, and shortly follow the deployment of Russian Air Force Tu-160 intercontinental range strategic bombers to South Africa after a thirteen hour flight over the Indian Ocean. The intention of both of these exercises is thought to be a demonstration of the country’s ability to rapidly redeploy assets to project power overseas - including the deployment of survivable high endurance nuclear assets.

Why Women Destroy Nations/Civilizations and other uncomfortable truths

Women do not on an instinctual level care very much about her tribe nation or civilization. It's in their nature not to. Women are biological creatures like all others and they seek to maximize their chances of having viable offspring. This half century long experiment of women's liberation and political enfranchisement has ended in disaster for the West. And the damage done to the West may be irreparable. And the only solution would be a return to a more patriarchal society and this seems highly unlikely. I want you to hold on to this key thought as the meaning will become clear as this video progresses.

Largest Child-Sacrifice Graveyard Strikes Huge Blow to Native American Innocence Myth

Every Columbus Day, liberals insist that the story of European colonization is a simple narrative of good versus evil: horrible Europeans came upon innocent Native Americans, introducing slavery, exploitation, and oppression. A massive archaeological discovery blows one of many gaping holes in this narrative. While Europeans did indeed do horrible things, the natives weren't exactly innocent.

Two hundred and fifty skeletons of children between the ages of 4 and 14 have been unearthed at Huanchaco, Peru, in what experts say is likely the world's largest child-sacrifice site. Huanchaco is a site of the Chimú culture (1200-1400), a predecessor to the mighty Inca Empire, which also carried out child sacrifices.

TRUMP-UKRAINE WHISTLEBLOWER SUDDENLY WON'T TESTIFY; LAWYERS BREAK OFF NEGOTIATIONS AMID NEW REVELATIONS

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
A CIA officer who filed a second-hand whistleblower complaint against President Trump has gotten cold feet about testifying after revelations emerged that he worked with Joe Biden, former CIA Director John Brennan, and a DNC operative who sought dirt on President Trump from officials in Ukraine's former government.

According to the Washington Examiner, discussions with the whistleblower - revealed by RealClearInvestigations as 33-year-old Eric Ciaramella have been halted, "and there is no discussion of testimony from a second whistleblower, who supported the first's claims."

Ciaramella complained that President Trump abused his office when he asked Ukraine to investigate corruption allegations against Joe Biden and his son Hunter, as well as claims related to pro-Clinton election interference and DNC hacking in 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This thing is falling apart faster than does a badly wounded souffle!!!

The only thing that the Dementocrats will have accomplished with this badly out of tune theme-song of Presidential corruption, is to energize Trump's base, to the point where they will get clobbered - and hard (metaphorically speaking, of course)- come the 2020 election.

At 70, I have come to the conclusion that most politicians (and religious leaders) are frustrated actors, and church, or government, becomes their stage, where they hold a segment of the population in their thrall.

But I would strongly caution all of this country's alleged representatives, that when they ignore We the People, and our real needs and concerns, in order to play "Gotcha/Gutter politics", they do so at their own, professional peril.

This is precisely where Madame Pelosi, Herr Marshall Schiff, and the Dementocrats are going, right now; and Tom Perez, the top-knot on this collective head of madness which has become the DNC, seems to be perfectly content to allow this to play out, no matter the consequences to his party in 2020.

Apparently, no one in the bowels of power at the DNC really thought this scenario through, to an absolutely logical conclusion which did not favor their desired outcome.

GHISLAINE MAXWELL WAS A GUEST AT JEFF BEZOS’S SECRET BOOK RETREAT

SOURCE: VICE
Every fall, the elite of the literary world and Hollywood convene at a highly secretive writer's retreat hosted by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, and no one talks about it.

Not every Campfire attendee is a household name: Tech entrepreneurs and industry power brokers are also invited to rub shoulders with celebrities.

Now, Motherboard has learned that one of Campfire 2018's attendees was Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite who is alleged to have been instrumental in grooming young women into convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's sex-trafficking ring. Reporting on Maxwell’s alleged role, via victim statements and court records, goes back to 2011.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me unsurprised by these revelations; more than a few people at this level of wealth are generally amoral monsters, who contribute great amounts of money to various charities as this is their"virtue signaling" to the rest of society.

IMPEACHMENT THEATER

SOURCE: MOON OF ALABAMA
Ukrainegate is the new Russiagate. The 'whistleblower complain' is the new 'dirty dossier'. The 'former' MI6 spy Christopher Steele wrote the dossier. The current CIA spy Eric Ciaramella wrote the 'complain':

Federal documents reveal that the 33-year-old Ciaramella, a registered Democrat held over from the Obama White House, previously worked with former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan, a vocal critic of Trump who helped initiate the Russia “collusion” investigation of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
Further, Ciaramella (pronounced char-a-MEL-ah) left his National Security Council posting in the White House’s West Wing in mid-2017 amid concerns about negative leaks to the media. He has since returned to CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.

“He was accused of working against Trump and leaking against Trump,” said a former NSC official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this whole thing does not horrifically reek of "set-up", I do not know what will.

Those Scary Russians?

We didn’t realize at first that we were working with a Russian “roof,” otherwise known as a Russian mafia. We didn’t even know what one was – – –

Think of someone as an enemy and you will treat them as an enemy. Reacting to your treatment, they will treat you likewise.

By the way it keeps treating Russia and Russians, it’s clear the Deep State desperately wants Russia as it’s enemy and essential villain.

Unabashed gun-rights activist and enthusiastic fan of America Maria Butina, for example. Although created into a promiscuous Russian spy by the lascivious presstitutes of our fully owned CIA subsidiary the MSM, the best the “Justice” Department branch could do was plea-blackmail her into an “Unregistered Lobbyist.”

Six Graphs Showing Just How Much the Government Has Grown

By Ryan McMaken

Federal spending and federal taxation in the United States set new records in 2019. And the federal budget deficit swelled to more than a trillion dollars. Europe is in the middle of an enormous spending binge. But apparently hard-core laissez-faire libertarian purists have taken over the world’s governments.

At least, that’s the case in the minds of many leftists and conservatives who have convinced themselves that “market fundamentalists” have conquered the world’s institutions, and have enacted a global regime of near-zero taxation, free trade, and almost totally unregulated markets...

Rising Up Against The Oligarchs Does Not Equal Socialism

By Jon Rappoport

There are “people’s” groups all over the world who advocate the overthrow of the men at the top —the Oligarchs—who control nations.

These people’s groups want to install socialism as the answer to Oligarchy.

That’s preposterous.

The Oligarchs—bankers, mega-corporate CEOs, financiers, government leaders, intelligence agencies—collude to cut out competition so they can stand alone at the summit of the mountain. And they call this arrangement SOCIALISM. They PROMOTE socialism. They’ve staked out OWNERSHIP of socialism worldwide...
