Lindsey Graham Ready to Hold Senate Hostage Over Khashoggi Briefing

Saudi Arabia’s stifling grip on the world oil markets has been a fantastic deterrent against criticism for the Crown Prince as of late, even as Khashoggi’s killing looms large in the rearview mirror.

Lindsey Graham

While the President has all but brushed off the ongoing drama surrounding the death of anti-Saudi journalist Jamal Kashoggi, it seems that not everyone in the republican party is falling in step with him.

Khashoggi’s killing was a gruesome and grotesque affair, complete with dismemberment, torture, and a disturbing disposal process.  It was no clean hit, instead, it was meant to send a message from the Saudi Royal Family to those who would choose to oppose them.

Our CIA even went so far as to claim that the Saudi Crown Prince himself personally ordered the assassination.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., threatened to withhold his vote on a spending bill if the CIA fails to brief Congress on the murder of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi.

Speaking to reporters, Graham indicated that the briefing lawmakers had just received by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was insufficient without the CIA present.

“If that briefing is not given soon, it’s going to be hard for me to vote on any spending bill,” Graham said.

The look of disappointment was unmistakeable.

AOC Tries to Use Meteorological Event to Push Climate Change, Gets Harshly Rebuked by Expert

You live by social media sword, you die by the social media sword.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been one of the most avid social media users in Congress, but that distinction has backfired far more often than it hasn’t for her. AOC, as she has advertised herself, is undoubtedly one of the millennial-ist members of Congress to ever saunter about the Capitol.  Her constant social media PR and far-left ideologies appeal to a wide swath of the American youth, giving the political newbie a gravitational pull that her fellow democrats have not yet experienced. But this also means that every tidbit of AOC’s life will be subject to criticism, since every tidbit of her life is being broadcast. Her latest social media stunt saw the New York House Rep panicking over a tornado warning in Washington DC and attempting to draw a parallel to global warming. Meteorologists were quick to rebuke her. Here is the frantic video: https://youtu.be/zBG-BmMdP70 The Green New Deal advocate then shared a story published by PBS in March questioning if climate change makes tornadoes worse and put emphasis on a quote from the piece that read, “Rather than lie squarely in the Great Plains, America’s tornadoes appear to be sliding into the Midwest and Southeast.” “Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her followers as she reviewed the article. “But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.” Then came the clincher. “The climate crisis is real y’all … guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram. That theory was quickly shot down, however. Meteorologist Ryan Maue, though, argued that she was confusing climate change with “weather” in…

RED HANDED: 2020 Candidate Tied to Early SpyGate Setup

Bill Barr has his work cut out for him.

President Trump is officially on the warpath. After literally years of talk about the Mueller report, the document has come and gone.  Its conclusions were a resounding win for this President, and, in the minds of many Americans, the democrats are again acting like sore losers. This accusation is particularly pointed given their behavior back in November of 2016. Trump is now pushing forward with his investigation of the investigators, aimed at getting to the bottom of why and how the entire debacle began. The latest reporting from the Washington Post puts one of the 2020 democrats squarely in the midst of it. Former Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly one of the few Obama administration officials who participated in secretive meetings during the early stages of the Obama-era intelligence community’s initial operations regarding suspected Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. That tidbit was contained deep inside a 7,700-plus word Washington Post article published June 23, 2017 in which the newspaper also detailed the highly compartmentalized nature of the original Russia interference investigation and the manner in which other U.S. intelligence agencies were deliberately kept in the dark.  Part of the efforts eventually involved unsubstantiated and ultimately discredited charges made by the Christopher Steele dossier that Trump campaign officials were colluding with Russia. The move could have major implications as 2020 rolls around. Biden’s largely unreported role in the initial Obama administration meetings on the matter of Russian interference could spark further questions now that Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion claims. Biden is currently the far-and-away frontrunner of the crowded 2020 democratic field, besting his closest opponent Bernie Sanders by double digits in the latest polling.
