Add to that nonsense, the U.S. Department of Defense wants the students at their university to write a really nice essay on the greatness on the Saudi Arabian monarch—-While the lashings of a blogger who talked against Islam go on, and they have beheaded more people in Saudi Arabia every year than Isis.
According to a press release from the U.S. Department of Defense, attendees of the National Defense University have been tasked with formulating a written tribute to the “life and leadership” of the “Saudi Arabian monarch
As noted by the Intercept’s Murtaza Hussain, prominent U.S. leaders such as John McCain, Joe Biden and John Kerry wasted no time in highlighting Abdullah’s alleged accomplishments following his death.
In a statement last night Senator John McCain eulogized Abdullah as ‘a vocal advocate for peace, speaking out against violence in the Middle East.’ John Kerry described the late monarch as ‘a brave partner in fighting violent extremism’ and ‘a proponent of peace.’ Not to be outdone, Vice President Joe Biden released a statement mourning Abdullah and announced that he would be personally leading a presidential delegation to offer condolences on his passing.
After all, 17 of the men who took part in 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia. The Bushes have a long-standing business venture with the bin Laden’s, and he personally ordered all planes on 9/11 to stand down, while he let the Saudi Kings’ relatives here in the United States be gathered up quickly and sent home.
So nice to know that was the FIRST thing on his mind.
They go way back, the Bushes and the Saudi’s: President Bush in 2005, invited the Saudi King to his Texas ranch. You would have thought Obama was in town.
From the Dallas Morning News:
Living like J.R.
Prince Abdullah and his party took over 120 of the 143 rooms at the Mansion on Turtle Creek, plus most of the rooms at its nearby sibling, the Hotel Crescent Court, as well as overflow rooms at the Four Seasons in Las Colinas.
Two 747s brought Abdullah and his party to Love Field and then 200 pieces of luggage were trucked to his headquarters at the Mansion. They were promptly unpacked and 1,600 pieces of clothing were sent downstairs to be ironed.
In Abdullah’s room, a wall of flat-screen TVs was constructed so he could watch 16 channels simultaneously. A dinner for Abdullah in the Mansion’s main dining room was attended by the heads of Exxon Mobil, ConocoPhillips, PepsiCo and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Must be nice.
In fact, all our Presidents have carried on this cozy love affair with the Saudi King for so long, not ONE of them have tried very hard to open up Alaska and help America become oil independent.
George W. talked the talk, but didn’t press it.
And what about the Clinton’s?
“And we are grateful for his support of efforts for peace in the Middle East; our close economic cooperation; the Kingdom’s humanitarian efforts around the world; especially its contributions after the earthquake in Haiti; and his efforts to modernize Saudi Arabia’s economy and education systems – as embodied by King Abdullah University, the Kingdom’s first coeducational institution of higher education,”
Bill Clinton once got Prince Bandar to pony up $20 million to launch a Middle East studies program at the University of Arkansas and that Prince Bandar announced that the request was approved shortly before Bill Clinton won the presidential election…He also got over $10 million for his library, and lots of other Saudi’s to kick in. –the Bush Library got Saudi millions too.
So, as Obama visits Saudi Arabia today, I hardly think that’s it’s a coincidence that he JUST announced that he is going to set Alaska off limits forever more from any future drilling.
The Saudi Kings have poured more money into more U.S. Presidents pockets they make the Koch brother’s money look like a cookie bake….where’s Harry Reid on that?
.And THAT’s why the Swiss carry guns.
Everyone was talking about the hypocrisy of Al Gore selling his debunked cable network to Al-Jazeera today. How could someone who is the biggest propaganda minister in the world against that nasty crude oil, sell his station to a bunch of Muslims in Qatar? (The biggest hotbed of terrorists in the Middle East.) Gore made $100 million dollars, and filed it last year so as not to pay those heavy taxes.
And this after Glenn Beck offered him a higher price.
The Blaze was reportedly told by the network that “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,” according to sources familiar with the situation.
Hillary loves Al-Jazeera, and has said so. She prefers it to American television.
America: WAKE UP! These people are owned by their greed for cash.
It’s time we looked at reality: When it comes to our top politicians, they never met a oil Sheik they didn’t like. Here’s a few facts I’m learning at the moment from, “Sleeping With the Devil.” by X-CIA agent Robert Baer.
America built Saudi Arabia’s oil business and for that they work out a nice deal with the sheiks.
“Saudi Arabia was America’s anchor in the Arab Middle East. It banked our oil under its sand. Losing it would be like losing the Federal Reserve. The Saudis own half the world’s surplus production capacity. Take the Saudi Surplus out of play and the market loses it stability and liquidity. “
But…isn’t it odd? We are beholding to the very people that want to kill us, and did you ever wonder why we don’t mine our own oil, of which we have plenty? How come decade after frustrating decade, our leaders never, ever, EVER seem to muster the votes to develop our own oil? Why would they rather put billions in Wind farms, and algae and other such nonsense, when we have oil right under our feet?
It seems ALL our past Presidents …cannot resist…getting filty rich from deals with the Saudi’s. There is a deal. You let the Saudi’s keep the monopoly…and you all will get very rich.
Let’s follow the bouncing Saudi Ball:
It started with FDR. He worked out the deal with King Ibn Sa’ud. We would get the oil out of the ground: and they would be the only supplier.
“There’s hardly a living former assistant secretary of state for the Near East: CIA director: White House staffer : or member of Congress who hadn’t ended up on the Saudi payroll in one way or another. ” says Baer.
Let’s look at the men we have voted in, that seem to have always put fortune before country:
President Richard Nixon: The CIA story goes that a sheik named Khashoggi went to see President Nixon at his home in San Clemente. When he got up to leave, he “forgot” his briefcase, which happened to be stuffed with $ 1 million in hundreds. It was never returned. ( Is it any wonder that these guys are allowed in the White House day after day?) Nixon put King Fahd up at Blair House, strictly reserved for heads of state. The White House would put out it’s hand to fund pet projects that Congress wouldn’t fund or couldn’t.
President Jimmy Carter: Prince Bandar gave a New York City benefit for Jimmy Carter’s president repository in on Atlanta, at $50.000. And Jimmy has been getting paid by the Saudi’s ever since in his various money-making groups. Jimmy is a regular PR man for anything Muslim. You can bet peanut farming was never so lucrative as being a Jewish attack dog for the Muslim Brotherhood.
President George H. W. Bush: as adviser to the famous investment firm, the Carlyle Group, George used the Presidency to open the doors to Saudi Arabia. (Not to mention, he sent our troops over to protect Kuwait) Daddy Bush was compensated for his time, reputation, and Rolodex with shares in the investments he helps to generate. The Bin Laden family had money invested in the Carlyle Group. Bandar, who by the way, owns the best piece of property in Washington on the Potomac, was so close to George H. W. Bush that he called him “Bandar Bush” and Bandar gave him $1 million towards his Presidential Library. Prince al Walid kicked in $500,000 to help launch the Geog Herbert Walker Bush Scholarship Fund at Phillips Academy, Andover . And since Saudi Arabia wanted Saddam gone, who’s NOT to say that war was for the Saudi’s?
Dick Cheney: as head of Halliburton he landed millions in engineering contracts and other lucrative deals. More like…billions.
President Bill Clinton: While Clinton was President The Qatari foreign minister wandered in and out of the White House as if he worked there. The CIA decided that the door to the Oval Office was always open to Saudi ambassador Bandar bin Sultan and not to them. While Clinton was President, Bandar built a mansion in Aspen worth $55 million, where he had lots of parties for the democratic wives of the top politicians. Clinton was good friends with Prince Turki. former head of the Saudi intelligence service, and went to school with him. Bill Clinton got $ 3 million dollars for his library, and King Fahd donated $23 million to the University of Arkansas’s new Center for Middle Eastern Studies…a “gesture of respect” for the newly elected Clinton.
And while Clinton was President, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Henry Kissinger and George Shultz, joined as directors of Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, and open doors to the Saudis and the Kuwait’s. They all got money from that. Kissinger got $876,000 for six months of work: Shultz took home $1.08 million. Rumsfeld $1.09 million and Powell $1.49 million.
Colin Power was Bandar’s racquetball buddy. Powell started harassing Aril Sharon in Tel Aviv. And even though Queen Haifa had made contributions to the hijackers of 9/11, Powell defended them on national TV.
And that brings us to
‘President’ Barack Hussein Obama: Before he was elected to office, a Saudi Prince told a reporter that very soon there would be a Muslim in the White House. Barack’s college education was funded by Saudi’s, it has been reported. And he has helped out American backed dictators throughout the Middle East and they have been replaced with Muslim brotherhood dictators. It is reported that the Muslim brotherhood have full access to the Oval office and drop in any time they like. No President has done more to promote the Muslims our history, going so far as to claim that the Muslims helped build America. NASA now is helping the Muslims..(see video) Benghazi proved that Obama and Hillary want to make it a crime for us to speak against Muslims which by the way, control the UN.
Our Congress remains silent.
So…While our country is being gutted…it’s also being filled up with Muslims, Mosques, and million-dollar Presidential libraries that we certainly don’t need. No matter how bad things are for the little guy, our politicians continue to reap riches…
I now have half a block of Muslim neighbors, and they hate all Americans…and even though we blocked George W. Bush from giving DUBAI our ports (How much was he going to make off of that deal, Nobody Wonders?) we won’t stop Obama from flooding our country with Islamic culture.
The deal was: Keep your mouth shut and the Saudi’s take care of you. They have as much as a trillion dollars in US banks as insurance.
I don’t know about you…but this is just the stuff that we know about. But maybe that’s the reason John Boehner keeps crying …he did it again today…he knows too much.
So Nobody Asks—- Who really Cares?
I do. The more I know about Washington, the more ashamed I am that I voted for any of them.
