Sunday Talks: Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal Interviewed by Maria Bartiromo…

Maria Bartiromo interviews Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal about his relationship with Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman (MbS) and the Khashoggi murder.  Apparently Ms. Bartiromo, who has met MbS personally, is not a fan.  Then again, there are financial relationships between Fox media and Saudi interests that might also have bearing…

    Attempting to drive wedge between governing Saudis and Trump admin. The Khashoggi matter as well as the DaNang Dick sponsorship of the 9/11 Saudi report is all part of the same effort.

      Al-waleed’s family’s biggest business isn’t oil, it’s actual corporate predation. It’s like all criminal enterprises; you need to park your money somewhere, so why not take over legitimate businesses – who have to use hard work, talent and ingenuity for every penny – but can’t compete against billions in slushfunds.

      Bartiromo’s husband is the secondary predator who cleans up the left-overs.

      Neither Al-waleed, nor Bartiromo actually produces anything of real value; they manipulate “perceptions”; media, banking and finances, politics, regulation, etc to seize businesses other people have built.

      So you have a mouthpiece married to Jewish corporate raiders providing cover to a parasite who funnels billions in dirty Muslim money into the American legal-media-political bloodstream.

      Reading the comments, it’s disheartening that so many are again falling for Bartiromo. She tried to sabotage Trump in the campaign. Trump knows not to trust her (she tried to do to Trump what Ford did to Kavanaugh!), but your average voter is AGAIN falling for the trap of trusting an already-EXPOSED media figure (of a notorious Jewish corporate raiding outfit!), who is simply lulling her audience into trusting her so she can hopefully turn Trump-voters against Trump.

      Alwaleed has been the conduit of billions funneled into the US political-media-legal system at the tail end of trillions in an overall geostrategic relationship.

      Bartiromo knows who her masters are – more importantly, she knows who her husband’s masters are, as the family she’s married into is known for being secondary corporate raiders – one of whose functions is to clean up the bones of the financial predators of the world like the Saudis (don’t create wealth, just gobble up businesses other people build). And ultimately, a media job is much like any marketing and hollywood job – it’s not real work. So a Jewish financial predator married to a media prima donna (par for the course).

      Both Alwaleed and Bartiromo are parasites, in their own right. Like parasites, both have pretended to be Trump’s side (well, on “everybody’s” side).

      Both are enemies of the idea of America, and ultimately the American People. Trump knows this personally – and on an instinctual level, patriotically; he is well aware both did everything they could to sabotage his Presidential campaign and Presidency, and that they will try to sucker him into a position where they can backstab him.

      It will be important for Americans not to rely on people like Bartiromo – who will try to rebuild their “credibility” with Trump voters – so that she can use that to turn those voters against Trump. It’s one of the biggest problems with voters – even though Bartiromo has already been exposed as a Left-wing shill trying to take down Trump in 2016 using the old “sexual assault charges”, voters tend to forget such betrayals and continue to listen to the NEW lies from the VERY SAME PERSON they once knew was a liar.

      Btw, if you don’t understand that America is a Christian country, you should understand by now that both Jewish and Muslim families have NO PROBLEM with attacking the America and Christians like Trump. Bartiromo knows that America isn’t a “Judeo” country, or she wouldn’t try to weaken it.

      Bottom line-you cannot trust any of them.
      Theres that thing called TAQIYYA in Islam

      Deception, Lying and Taqiyya
      Does Islam permit Muslims to lie?

      Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should generally be truthful to each other, unless the purpose of lying is to “smooth over differences” or “gain the upper-hand over an enemy”

      There are several forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, the best known being taqiyya (the Shia name). These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause of Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.

        For one of the first times in a month Al-Jazeera is not leading with #JamalKhashoggi but instead has a story about Bahrain, Khashoggi is now the second story on the page. #MiddleEastMedia


      • yucki says:

        From the Executive Summary linked above:

        The Turkish government successfully used an information operation to elevate the case of Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance into a major international incident with strategic implications.…

        The Turkish government attained success through an adaptation of a Russian technique that the RAND Corporation calls the “Firehoses of Falsehood Propaganda Model.”¹ In fact the “Falsehood” aspect of this model is dispensable; the model works much better if the information can be proven true, and still quite well if the information is merely not demonstrably false.

        What is essential to the model used by the Turks and the Russians is the repeated injection of wild stories, not all at once but in controlled sequence. This creates a building effect similar to the increase of tension in a novel or screenplay. The audience comes to see attaining a resolution as necessary to their personal psychic well-being.

        …Although Turkish-language media supported and helped to drive the narratives, as did Arabic-language media controlled by Turkish ally Qatar, the main outlets that Turkish intelligence used to execute their operation were major Western English- language journalist outlets. This becomes clear upon an intensive study of the data.

        …Some Western outlets, including the Washington Post, performed reasonably well at alerting their readers to the possibility that these stories were manipulative. Others, especially the New York Times, treated the successive firehoses as if they corroborated one another.…


        • yucki says:

          I confess I was totally HOOKED on the story.

          I kept searching clues, sources. Almost everything was in Western media rather than regional. Strange, strange. Turk alleges this, that…

          Why aren’t the Saudis reacting?
          Why is Lindsey Graham taking up this MB cause so diametrically opposed to PTrump’s foreign policy direction? The spirit of McStain soiling the post-Kavanaugh hero?!

          It was an info op, it SUCKED the oxygen out of everything else.

          Including the impending crisis over the Syrian city of Manbij, a city that controls the northeast bank of the Euphrates. It’s held by the U.S.-supported Syrian Democratic Forces, mostly Kurds. The Turk wants them out.

          It’s a big deal.

  13. Al Waleed is NOT the dopey Prince any longer. In my humble opinion he is now towing the company line. Guaranteed he was not a MbS supporter prior to his … ahem … detention. The fact that he almost seems now to be the new Saudi spokesperson says more about his realignment with the MbS “reforms”. Whether he is saying this because he believes it or because he has no choice is irrelevant. he IS saying it. Khashoggi murder was a set up against MbS because he is still firmly in control.

    Any attempt to apply a “western” representative democracy sense of “integrity” to a mid-eastern dictatorship is, well, goofy. Maria Bartiromo is a great interviewer of “westerners” – but she is no Oriana Fallaci who not only interviewed the tyrants, but spoke truth to power to them. It was Fallaci who wrote: “Europe becomes more and more a province of Islam, a colony of Islam. And Italy is an outpost of that province, a stronghold of that colony… In each of our cities lies a second city: a Muslim city, a city run by the Quran. A stage in the Islamic expansionism.”

    Snake charmers learn to handle the hooded cobra. We can exist with mid-eastern dictators, if the dictators are determined to not to make a return to the caliphate concept. But, in the name of being anti-stupid, lets not try to screw around getting dictators to buy into “western” values. The great conceit in “globalism” is that all of the peoples of the world are anxious to “just get along” with one another. That type of spongy thinking is an invitation for tyrants to show us otherwise.

      That is KEY is understanding their duplicitous talk, because of their “definitions”. Example #1 is when a Moslem talks of “peace”, he/she is referring to to an anticipated time when the entire earth is under Shari’a. The Moslem definition of “peace” is not the same as what westerners are referring to by our Webster’s 1828 Dictionary definition.

        Saudis Call for Amazon Boycott Over Anger At Washington Post

        (Bloomberg) – Saudis who are angry at The Washington Post’s coverage of the kingdom in the aftermath of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder are calling for a boycott of Inc. because of its shared ownership by U.S. billionaire Jeff Bezos.…

        Many citizens have felt that their country is under attack since Saudi agents killed Khashoggi, a Post columnist and insider turned critic, at the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul. They’ve been particularly upset by an op-ed article by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan recently published in the Post, and by the newspaper’s coverage – along with other international media – of gruesome information about the murder obtained from anonymous Turkish officials.…


  16. Rich Van Slooten says:

    Having worked in Saudi Arabia (SA) for 20+ years in a high level technical position I understand the internal politics and religious politics better than most Americans do. Middle Eastern governments in general don’t tolerate vocal opposition to their leadership… regardless of the country you pick. Its not much different that Old Testament times when kings/rulers would eliminate all opposition to their rule when they assended to power even to extended family members.

    Consolidating and maintaining power are one and the same. Likewise for Saudi Arabia the transition from older leadership/kingship to the current generation is going to be frought by struggle conflict. MbS is trying to consolidate power quickly so can rule without opposition. Enemies of MbS are not going to survive very long in SA unless they are successful in overthowing him.

    At the same time MbS wants to modernize SA economically and culturally so that it is more open and is in tune with the modern digital era. Allowing women to drive by themselves without their husbands approval or by having a required driver is a huge change.

    However the conservative religious folks don’t look that those kind of changes very kindly. So MbS has made alot of enemies very quickly and it will be interesting to see if he stays alive long enough to realize some of his dreams for Saudi Arabia. It is daunting task to wean SA from a dominant oil economy to a more diverse one economically… so that remains to be seen whether it can be successfully accomplished.

      1Timothy 2:1 ¶ I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for ALL MEN;
      2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

      3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
      4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
      5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

      2 To SPEAK EVIL OF NO MAN, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.

      3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
      4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,

      5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

    The Saudi Killing Of Jamal Khashoggi

    “…By 2017, Khashoggi, who had two million Twitter followers, was the best known pundit in the Arab world. He has been hailed in the West as a progressive, but that is a case of misunderstanding his aims. Khashoggi believed in spreading Islamic rule, the same goal as that of any Jihadi, but he wanted to achieve that goal through political Islam. He joined the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1970s and remained true to it, even praising it in a Washington Post column.

    “Some described him as the de facto leader of the Saudi branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Crown Prince, on the other hand, believes that the Muslim Brotherhood is a danger to the Kingdom, that is, to his family’s continued rule.

    “Khashoggi flourished in Washington during the last year. He became a regular guest on the major TV news networks in Britain and the United States, as well as a columnist for the Washington Post. In 2018 Khashoggi established a new political party, in the West, called Democracy for the Arab World Now, which — had he lived — could have become a major political threat to Crown Prince Mohammed.…”

Khashoggi was totally wise to what he was doing and what his life expectancy was as a result of his meddling with the House of Saud. Some Al-Waleed type must have promised to be there to protect him.

    Here is my little theory. This is not a random interview. Bartiromo interviews Al-Waleed because MBS wants him to be interviewed. Al-Waleed must publicly support MBS personally and must “expose” fake news by denying everything about torture, assets forfeiture etc.

    But most importantly, he must 100% support the Saudi version of the events. Very important because he is being portrayed as a friend and a close associate of the murdered “journalist” and therefore his testimony carries a lot of weight.

    Both MBS and Al-Waleed benefit from this interview. Maria is a bit frustrated because she knows this is Kabuki and she is one of the dancers.

But I think a lot of well-meaning folks fall into the trap of assuming that in every conflict, there is a “good guy” and a “bad guy.” Having some experience with this part of the world, I recommend that you reject that paradigm. Every public figure is “one kind of sumbitch or another.”

    The main thing I got from the interview is that the Dopey Prince got the message and he is saying what he was told to say.

    Well, I don’t know what to make of the questions or the answers but I do know that was one of the strangest interviews I have ever seen. I watched it twice, once with sound and once without. Very odd, indeed.

    And the timing is suspect as well. Who was doing whose bidding? Methinks it was just theatre. But for whom?

    Anyone keeping tabs is well-aware that billionaire Saudi Prince al Walid bin Talal, Riyadh’s former Ambassador to the U.S., is a Wahhabi cultist (a fundamentalist Sufi branch of Sunni Islam) with close ties to Chicago Marxists’ murderous terror network that sponsored the Ayers-Dohrn “Weather Underground”.

    Allied with Soros networks from the mid-1990s on, this close-knit coterie –see numerous media references, incl. news photos and TV appearances– was instrumental in promoting Barack Hussein Soetoro as a Foreign Exchange student (that is, a Sunni Muslump Indonesian National with Shi’ite Iranian agent-of-influence Valerie Jarrett as “control”) at Columbia and Hah-vahd. (At both institutions, SHD’s actual attendance is a complete blank slate). For obvious reasons, “Corpseman’s” uniformly failing grades remain tight-sealed… as one entirely dependent upon Ayers’ canned teleprompter speeches –in fact, the bastard offspring of Comintern pedophile Frank Marshal Davis– this vile anti-Semitic, black supremacist Farrakhanist, Marxisant/taqiyya Muslump quota-baby was en par with a Manhattan subway token-taker.

    Over time, as this prima facie reality sinks in, chroniclers of quasi-scholarly repute will ask themselves: If Benedict Barack Gangrenous remained a certified Sunni Muslump citizen of Indonesia (traveling to Pakistani poppy-fields on a Djakarta passport) through the mid-2000s, is’t possible he never bothered to register naturalized U.S. citizenship at all (think SAD’s patently fraudulent Kapiolani birth certificate, phony Connecticut SSN, and so on)? Note: As of summer 2018, our revered ex-President is officially listed as “Soetoro” in DC for purposes of municipal property and tax records.

    In my honest opinion, Al-waleed acts like he is hooked up to an electric torture device and is anticipating the next shock. How can you interview a man in that condition.

    I think the Khosoggi fellow might have been caught as a double agent.
