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.

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.

Now, even in the face of the President’s indifference, Senator Lindsey Graham wants answers.

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.

New Women’s March Board Member Gets Kicked To The Curb After Two Days On The Job Over Anti-Semitic Tweets

This lady is deplorable.

There seems to be something about the Women’s March that’s a beacon for individuals who just love to hate Jews and Israel. In fact, the group’s latest board member was only on the job two days before being booted after anti-Semitic tweets were discovered on her Twitter profile. Hmmm. Really does make you wonder. Why do these kind of people gravitate toward this group? via TheBlaze: On Monday, The Washington Post reported that inaugural co-chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour had stepped down from their positions at the organization, noting that the trio had “been dogged by accusations of anti-Semitism, infighting and financial mismanagement.” Conservative news outlets were quick to point out that many in the 17-member board replacing the former leaders were no better, and exposed an array of anti-Semitic tweets and messages expressing support for black nationalist Louis Farrakhan. One of the new board members was Zahra Billoo, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The Washington Examiner reported that Billoo’s Twitter feed was “filled with anti-Zionist tweets, which the Anti-Defamation League has deemed ‘anti-Semitic.'” On Wednesday, Billoo revealed that she had been voted off the board of the Women’s March, following “an Islamophobic smear campaign.” She went on to slam the organization for letting her go, saying “it has effectively said, we will work on some women’s rights at the expense of others.” So wait a minute. Is she really going to play the victim card here? It certainly seems that’s what she’s doing. It’s kind of hard to garner any sort of sympathy for a person trying to claim they are the victim of some sort of hate and racism, when they themselves have been engaged in heinous acts of hatred themselves. Billoo wasn’t removed because she’s a Muslim. She was removed…

Andrew Yang Plans To Combat Climate Change By Forcing You To Stop Eating Meat By Jacking Up Prices

How about no.

Published

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang is all about being a crusader against climate change, so much in fact, he’s created a plan to stop it by forcing you to stop eating meat. How does he plan to do that? By making the prices so high and expensive you simply can’t afford to purchase it. Typical leftist, wanting to try and limit people’s freedom and force them do something he believes is best, despite the fact the science on this whole subject is flimsy. via TheBlaze: “I do think it’s difficult to regulate diets. So what you would want to do again is you’d want those cattle producers to have to internalize the cost of emissions,” Yang continued. “So then, what that would naturally do, and some people are going to hate this, but it would probably make those products more expensive,” he concluded. “And that is appropriate, because there is a cost to producing food in that way. And so if you were to make it more expensive, then you would end up changing consumption patterns.” The plan follows in the vein of that from the “Green New Deal” from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), which bizarrely plotted to eliminate “farting cows” in a FAQ document ridiculed brutally by her critics. The document was eventually deleted from her official website. https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1174748818988052480 Or, how about this, we just let people eat whatever they want, since we all know for a fact that not eating meat isn’t going to have any sort of actual, legitimate impact on climate change? That sounds like a much better plan in my book, wouldn’t you agree? You see, much of the evidence coming out now, suggests that what the planet is experiencing now is a normal fluctuation in temperatures that has occurred since God created it. It’s…
