Trump Gives Crown Prince A Pass On Khashoggi’s Murder

Yesterday, we reported that President Donald Trump would find a way to give Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman a pass on his Royal Order to murder Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.


Today, Trump did just what we reported. He announced that the U.S. would not sanction Saudi Arabia for torturing and murdering Khashoggi. Shockingly, Khashoggi’s body was dismembered after his October 2, 2018 gruesome murder at the Saudi Embassy in Turkey.


Initially, the Saudis attempted to cover-up Knashoggi’s murder by simply denying it. Eventually, they admitted that Khashoggi was murder, but claimed the Crown Prince was not involved even though the killers were linked directly to him.


As choreographed between Trump and the Saudis, the President parroted every explanation the Saudi’s provided for Khashoggi’s murder and found each one of the ever-changing explanations to be "credible."


Last week, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency joined other foreign intelligence agencies in concluding that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally ordered Khashoggi’s murder. The CIA 's report did not matter to Trump because he was already compromised.


Trump said he was standing up for the Kingdom and Crown Prince because Saudi Arabia is a “great ally.” Of course, this was a pretext for Trump’s real motivation for condoning politically motivated murder.


Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner have close business ties to the Kingdom. It has been an open secret in Washington for the last six weeks that Trump would not take any meaningful action against the Saudis for Khashoggi's murder. In fact, one of Trump’s undisclosed assignments is the protection of the Crown Prince's and Trump Organization’s private business interests in Saudi Arabia, by any and all means necessary.


Furthermore, Trump has a knack for embracing every murderous despot who will meet with him and stroke his oversized ego and finance his businesses. With his “no sanctions” announcement today, Trump has officially embraced the murder of political dissidents as an acceptable political tool.


It is well known that Donald Trump will always place his private business interests ahead of America’s national interests whenever the two conflict. As a result, there was never going to be justice for Jamal Khashoggi as long as the Saudis and Russians finance Trump's business empire.

Where is the outcry for these Journalists?

"The murder of Miroslava Breach, who covered crime and corruption as a correspondent for the national newspaper La Jornada in the northern state of Chihuahua. Breach was killed on March 23. Gunmen shot her in her car as she pulled out of her driveway, with one of her three children sitting next to her. At the time, reporter Javier Valdez, one of Mexico's most acclaimed chroniclers of the country's drug war, defiantly wrote about Breach's killers.

"Let them kill us all, if that is the death penalty for reporting this hell, No to silence," he wrote.

Less than two months later, Valdez was pulled from his car and murdered in the street just…

This is what happens when an American president has no morals, character, integrity, respect for the rule of law, knowledge of history

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has urged U.S. President Barack Obama to take a firm stand against the death of three Muslims at the residential complex of the North Carolina State University.

Erdogan, delivering a speech at Mexico's Matias Romero Institute on Thursday, Feb. 12, called on President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry to condemn the murder in a statement.

"Why are you still keeping silent?” he asked, stressing that he has been waiting to hear their voice on the incident, which he called an "act of cruelty."

Three young Muslims from the same family, with two being married, were shot dead…

This is what happens when an American president has no morals, character, integrity, respect for the rule of law, knowledge of history, appreciation for our country's intelligence agencies, and sense of purpose-driven leadership beyond looking out for his own wallet. Donald Trump is a "bought and paid for" politician who is wholly owned by the Russians and Saudis. His allegiance is to the Russians, Saudis, and his businesses only. Trump does not give a damn about the American people and most of us know it.


My mother always said, "When a person shows you who they are, believe him/her." Trump is nothing more than a puppet of foreign dictators who fund his private business interests. He will say and …
