Editor’s Choice: Nothing in Any Conspiracy Theory Is as Bad as What’s Being Done out in the Open

Jamal Khashoggi

Yesterday President Trump posted a statement on the White House website saying his administration will be standing with the House of Saud despite the CIA’s assertion that Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman personally ordered the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist who was living and working in the United States.

The statement reads like a long form version of one of Trump’s tweets, replete with gratuitous exclamation points and slogans like “America First!” and the lie that Iran is “the world’s leading sponsor of terror”, which will never be true no matter how many times this administration deliberately repeats it. The world’s leading sponsor of terrorism is of course Saudi Arabia, along with Israel and the United States.

Trump’s alleged opposition has responded with melodramatic outrage, as though a US president continuing to stand by Saudi Arabia in the face of horrific acts of violence is somehow new and unprecedented and not standard operating procedure for decades. Dismembering a journalist while he’s still alive would be a fairly typical Tuesday afternoon for the Saudi government and would not rank anywhere near the top ten most evil things this government has done, but because it involves America and a conspiracy it’s a sexy story that everyone laps up.

      Isn’t that exactly what I said? And isn’t that why the Saudi murderers will get off the hook?

    America’s economy is based on the petrodollar – a monetary system that was invented by America and which is a system that keeps America’s economy afloat while Saudi Arabia makes this possible. The Saudi royal family can commit any crime, and America has to give them a get-out-of-jail card. It’s that simple.

    Supposedly Saudi terrorist fly planes into the twin towers so an America president orders an attack on Afghanistan. The question was always Why, and the answer is simple .. the Saudis are protected.

      Damn right they are protected, Max. Trump has done a deal with them to let the Saudi murderers off the hook in exchange for cheaper oil. The facts are in the market figures.
