Jamal Khashoggi’s Body Discovered in Garden, Turkey IRATE

Could this finally bring us some sort of closure in the Khashoggi case?

Jamal Khashoggi

While there is no argument that the Middle East has long been in the midst of modern turmoil, the death of Jamal Khashoggi could further imperil the region.

Khashoggi, a journalist with a knack for annoying the Saudi royal family with his reporting, has been killed in a horrific and gruesome manner within the Saudi consulate in Turkey weeks ago.  The Saudi government has been reacting with a number of conflicting stories about what happened to Khashoggi, and were caught attempting to use a body double to hoax Khashoggi leaving the consulate for the purpose of throwing off investigators.

The nature of the United States’ relationship with Saudi Arabia makes the Khashoggi case a particularly difficult one for US President Donald Trump to comment on, at least, diplomatically.

In Turkey, however, the likely discovery of Khashoggi’s remains has politicians a bit more animated.

Body parts belonging to murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi have been found, according to two Sky sources.

The sources have told Sky News the writer had been “cut up” and his face “disfigured”.

One source also suggested Mr Khashoggi’s remains were discovered in the garden of the Saudi consul general’s home – situated around 500 metres away from the consulate.

From before the discovery of the body parts:

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who had promised the “naked truth” about the killing, said: “Why has the body of someone who was officially said to be killed not been found yet?”

The Turkish president called on Saudi Arabia to hold those responsible to account in a dramatic speech to Parliament.

He described the journalist’s killing as ‘murder’ – the first time this accusation has been made by a named Turkish politician – and he went further, saying the killing was premeditated and planned days before.

Now the world will sit and wait for the official story to adjust to this new discovery, all the while reminding ourselves that banishing Saudi Arabia from the global community, or even reprimanding them, could have dire economic consequences for all who are involved.

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.

Capitol Police Ordered to Arrest Those Who Refuse Mask Mandate

Is Pelosi exploiting the Capitol Police to antagonize the GOP?

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again become a major piece of the American political landscape in 2021, as a new variant of the once-waning virus now threatens to set back herd immunity by several months or more. And while this is certainly not good news, there are still concerns that the Democratic Party is still taking this whole thing a bit too seriously, possibly in an attempt to virtue-signal their way into the hearts of young liberals everywhere. Their latest militant maneuver is being slathered in criticism, however. U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were ordered to start arresting visitors and staff who refuse to wear a mask on the House side of the Capitol complex starting Thursday, according to a police memo issued by new USCP Chief Thomas Manger that was obtained by a member of Congress. Police were also advised not to arrest members of Congress for failing to wear masks but to report the lawmakers’ noncompliance to the House sergeant-at-arms, the memo says. It didn’t take long for a backlash to erupt. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., got a copy of the memo distributed at Thursday’s morning roll call from an unnamed police officer, she told Fox News. Police she’s spoken to are “very uncomfortable” with this new directive that Cammack describes as “tyrannical.” “This is such an overstep of Speaker Pelosi’s authority to basically make our Capitol Police arrest staff members and report on members [of Congress],” Cammack told Fox News Thursday. “It’s absolutely unconscionable that this is where we’re at.” The move comes just a day after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s comments on possible mask requirements prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call him a “moron”.
