The Middle East is a mess. Exactly as they planned. It has been fractured and balkanized so that Greater Israel can be created but it is becoming clear to me that Saudi Arabia and Israel are working closer than most people think. Mohammed bin Salman is going to build Neom Saudi Arabia is the custodian of Mecca and I believe that he does not want a Shiite country at his back. He is cleaning up the Arabian Peninsula.

The Abraham Accords was negotiated by Otaiba the UAE American ambassador, who was one of the well-connected and powerful advocates in the US who was in contact with Jared Kushner, who was leading the peace deal negotiations. Israel now has close relations with the UAE. I would lay money on it that the airway is being built by Israel and the UAE possibly with input from Saudi.
John Cullen is not a nom de plume but more like a nom de guerre. I first came across his work with a short video exposing a hot mic moment before a White House press conference with participants more or less admitting that the pandemic was a big nothing burger. I then encountered a cooperative video that he made with the UK column team discussing the Covid statistics. From that I gathered that he constructed the Oracle dashboard for John Hopkins University that is employed by them to track the global pandemic. His analysis of the statistics was penetrating and revealing. This led me to have a look at his channel and his three year investigative odyssey into the Las Vegas shooting.
I decided to post two of his shorter videos firstly because they are important to understanding Middle East Geo-politics and secondly because they demonstrate that Governments lie. They lie all the time but they call it “national security”. Anyway, I like to think I have a nose for the truth and can recognize it when I see it. This is citizen journalism at its best -analytical, determined and fearless. Hats off to John Cullen.
Setting the scene
This is the Wikipedia account:
On the night of October 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, opened fire upon the crowd attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada. Between 10:05 and 10:15 p.m. PDT, he fired more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition from his 32nd floor suites in the Mandalay Bay Hotel, killing 60 people and wounding 411, with the ensuing panic bringing the injury total to 867. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Las_Vegas_shooting
Apparently, a “lone gunman” did it. Where have I heard that before?.…it sounds familiar. Almost immediately I knew something was wrong. A lot of people suspected a cover up or a false flag. As is often the case it was filed away under gov propaganda with the thought that one day the truth would out……and now it has thanks to John Cullen.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas
Of course that is not true. What happened in Vegas had lifelong repercussions for the families caught up in the slaughter and for the survivors, many of them permanently disabled or traumatized. What happened in Vegas did not stay in Vegas and had global Geo-strategic implications. As usual, the public was fobbed off with a false narrative.
Here follows a short synopsis of John Cullen’s hypothesis. I urge people to visit his channel and watch the longer videos because I cannot do his research justice. Basically, the shootings were part of a Saudi Royal family coup to kill MBS (and KBS) who had suites at the Four Seasons which was owned by another royal Alwaleed Bin Talal. The Saudi national guard had purchased helicopters from Boeing and some were still stationed in the USA for training the Saudi National Guard. It turns out that MBS had recently demoted the prince who was in charge of the Saudi National Guard. There were a lot of princes who were discontent and felt threatened by MBS. Many felt their rightful path to the throne had been blocked. They decided to assassinate MBS and failed. He took revenge on them. MBS also upset the branch of the family connected with the Wahhabi fanatics with his progressive policies. He had lots of enemies. Besides the shooters in helicopters (with transponders and lights off) radar detected maverick helicopters assisting the FBI and CIA with the exfiltration of crown prince MBS to a safe location to the south. So, a long story short….the people who got killed at the concert were at the wrong place at the wrong time. They were “collateral damage”. The powerful do not care how many innocents die or suffer as long as they can retain power.
Video #71: Means, Motive, & Opportunity – Who May Have Been Behind the Las Vegas Shooting?
Video #66: Who is MBS? Who wanted him dead?
I believe John Cullen is correct but I suspect that reality might even be even darker and murkier. It is surely not coincidental that Saudi was involved in 9/11. They seem to be handy fall guys – the perfect protagonists – ripe for manipulation. Religious fanatics are always easy to use because they already have the motivation. All they need is a gun and pointing in the right direction. Such operations always use cut outs and cut outs of cut outs – Oswald assassinated by Ruby….Ruby assasinated by… You get the picture. I have no doubt that the Saudis were involved and that this was a palace coup…..I also have no doubt that nefarious elements intended to use the chaos as leverage. I would not be surprised if rogue elements of the CIA (and Mossad?) were involved. One wonders if the assassination of Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October 2018 by agents of the Saudi government is in some way connected to what happened in Vegas. Well done to John Cullen for lifting the stone and showing us all the roaches and bugs scuttling away from the light.
It is necessary to keep our eyes on the “big picture”. There is a lot happening all over the world and a lot of confusion. The chaos and confusion is deliberate. It is called disinformation and is meant to leave you bewildered and malleable. A good example of this is the number of name changes used by the terrorist factions in Syria. Every time you hear the news it is another (different) faction. This is deliberate. The same with the coronavirus.
The Truth is out There
A good method is to watch what they do, not what they say. They say lots of things, but stay focused on what they actually do. Actions speak louder than words. Although this blog will direct you to a number of articles it does not necessarily mean that the articles are endorsed in their entirety. The idea is to make you aware of what is being “said” namely, how the narrative is being shaped. A few comments will be offered on each article but you must make up your own mind. Firstly, a video:
THE CV PANDEMIC WAS SIMULATED OCT 2019 BY MEGA-RICH CONTROL FREAKS BILL GATES, GEORGE SOROS +CRONIES. NOW IT’S FOR REAL. THE AIM IS A WORLD POPULATION CULL (“PEOPLE cause #CO2 problem”) by THEIR mass VACCINATION PLAN CONTAINING POISON.
Apparently Trump knows who is behind this and the inference is that it is Bill Gates. Many people, even Trump patriots are now suspicious that it was not natural or the fault of China and therefore a scapegoat must be found. The pro-Trump website Sorcha Faal also has some interesting research pointing to Gates. Apparently Gates “stepped down” from the Microsoft board. It seems to me that Gates is just a useful cut out. If Trump was genuine he would have arrested Gates. But this is all part of the “plan” trust “Q” as Trump the good Christian (sic) is fighting the good fight to defeat the evil globalists (communists). Another Sorcha Faal headline: Feint From Coronavirus Hysteria To Military Crackdown Raises Question If Trump’s Trade Wars Just Escalated To Germ Warfare. The article contains a lot of truth but is spun a certain way. For example, 14 Russians that had the virus did travel to Europe. What is the chance of that? It seems to me that Russia and China is deliberately encouraging “blow-back”. You want to infect us with germs? Then, we will make sure that you share in the misery. The large NATO exercise on the Russian border has been cancelled because of the virus. The Russian oil price war is also a deliberate blow against the West as is the Saudi coup against MBS. The USA is ramping up its military aggression in Iraq. So, these events are all linked but not in the way that Sorcha Faal presents it. What the Trump fans (and Christian-Zionists) fail to realize is that the same people are behind both groups. There are no good guys. Neo-liberal capitalism (imperialism) and globalism (communism) were drawn from the same well and established as opposing forces. Every good con man needs to distract you while they steal your wallet. Look over there at the horrible commie, globalist…etc who is using climate to force change. Come to me….I will save you. The following articles shed light on the Geo-politics:
Putin Unleashes Strategic Hell On The US. Outsmarted by Putin (again). This is why they hate him so much and why the Russian people want him to keep steering Russia through the turbulence. He has great Geo-political vision and is landing blow after blow. Not only is he destroying the petro-dollar he has put an end to their war gaming in Europe without firing a shot. This is what happens when you open Pandora’s box. Does Sir like his main course with a side helping of blow-back? As they say Karma is a bitch, especially when it bites you on the ass. Coronavirus Defeats NATO! Germany withdraws from Defender Europe 20 War Games. What then of Prince Bone Saw? It seems that he is also fighting for his life:Saudi Arabia Detains Almost 300 Officials Over ‘Corruption’ Amid Royal Power Struggle. His own family have turned against him. I wonder why? Surely bankrupting his country and fighting a loosing war in Yemen while acting like a despot is not the reason? But..but…he has introduced so many “Western” freedoms….women are now allowed to drive!
Sorry to all the ladies out there (we know men are worse drivers).
Effectively war with Russia-China-Iran. The USA (and Israel) is running out of friends in the Middle East. There is a difference between someone cooperating with you because they are compromised or scared or because they are genuinely friendly and share the same ideology. These people never learn. In the end they will turn against each other. The USA is taking out its aggression on Iraq. So far they have manged to kill a chef in a bombing raid. If I don’t like the food I normally complain. Perhaps the chef was a type of Steven Segal in under siege but actually it is not funny. This was a family man with children (collateral damage).
Every now and then I look at Sorcha Faal and it almost turns me into a Trump supporter! He is fighting the good fight as a “Christian” and saving “patriots” everywhere from the evil communists and globalists. Of course, I have previously warned that the website is very partisan and contains disinformation and spin. Why then do I return every so often? Well, firstly it does contain verifiable (and important) information and Secondly, it is important to understand what “spin” (disinformation) is added to push the uncritical reader in a certain direction. Many Trump supporters lap this up without even a question. That is not to say that the left is somehow above propaganda or self-delusion as they have also shown themselves masters at self-deception. The problem is that we all need to think critically and to be skeptical of anything we are told. They all have an agenda.
Once again, the first three articles on the Sorcha Faal website proved to be very informative. They contained a lot of useful information mixed in with disinformation, propaganda and spin.
“……the “scorched Earth oil war unleashed by Saudi Arabia” against the United States for its attempted coup against King Salman has led to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman detaining up to 20 princes involved in this coup plot, sees them deflating the “Everything Bubble” in order to oust President Donald Trump and install into power their next warmongering leader………..While believing that they could manage their “Everything Bubble” deflation using leftist manufactured coronavirus COVID-19 hysteria as the scapegoat, this report concludes, the US Federal Reserve has now been hit with the global oil war crisis—a crisis beyond their scope and power to deal with as the European economy has already ground to a halt and in no way can withstand another shock…..
This is interesting because Saudi Arabia is portrayed as the “bad guy” as many Trump supporters do not like the Saudi’s. Of course, SA is “bad” but then they all are. Note that the information about the recent coup is correct. As for the oil price war – it was Russia that rejected oil production cuts and SA responded by slashing its prices to capture the Asian market. However, very low oil prices will destroy the US shale industry (and the global economy). So, the whole “price war” thingy started with Russia and not with SA. Moreover, SA needs the petrodollar as much as the USA. What hurts the US $ will hurt SA investments etc. It is however possible that SA see this as an opportunity to destroy US shale and therefore take a competitor out the mix (all the while blaming Russia). Note also how the coronavirus is blamed on the left in order to collapse the system (Fed and Petrodollar). What can we say then? Well the coup was real -members of the Royal Family attempted to oust MBS and they were probably supported externally. Best guess? The coup plotters were supported by Iran or Qatar or perhaps even Russia. The coup was not supported by Israel or the USA. MBS is a trusted ally. Further, it is not in the long term interest of SA to destroy the petrol dollar and they cannot maintain the low prices as long as Russia. Russia responded by saying that it can maintain 10-25 dollars pb for ten years and SA needs $85 (break even on Brent). The whole economy of SA is oil based. Russia has been careful to diversify and sanctions and external pressures have made Putin reform the economy (it actually made the economy stronger and more independent). My analysis of this article is that the China-Russia-Iran axis want to punish the Anglo-Zionists and their allies for the release of the coronavirus. They attempted to depose MBS and now they are destroying the petrodollar. This is full on economic war. NATO is building up troops and exercising all along the Russian border….could this turn into a “hot” war? Well, that is my analysis, you must do your own thinking. It is interesting that these articles promote Russia and Trump and smear SA.
To sum up (very briefly…you must read the articles). A Russian lady who is part of a delegation that went to the Canary Islands (Spanish territory) to investigate how a German tourist got the virus (which was subsequently spread to mainland Spain) and who had contact with Intel Expert (Phil Haney) is arrested at the behest of USA (for extradition?). In the meantime Phil Haney “commits suicide” and the attorney general who is meant to investigate the suicide also commits a suicide murder. This chain of events is all indirectly linked with the coronavirus and cannot be “coincidence”. I had already picked up on some tweets but not put the connection together. Below are some tweets confirming the essential truth of the story (apologies for language in the tweet):
Olesya Krasilova apparently had just met up with Phil Haney in the Canaries. They were apparently sharing info about COVID-19/IRAN. He went home and got murdered. She got arrested by Spanish authorities by direction of US. Things that make you go…hmmm! https://t.co/eogUeHtbsY
Sorcha Faal spins this as related to the previous Obama administration. Now I have no doubt that the “Intel Expert” Phil Haney was whistle-blowing on Jihadist-US connections etc., but I doubt that he was murdered for that reason. The logical conclusion from this story is that Russia was investigating the origins of the coronavirus and the Anglo-Zionists are doing their best to stop the evidence emerging. Whatever your take on these events something strange is going on in the background. Personally, I think the three frog spirits in Revelation (unclean spirits) are related to the virus. The three countries Russia-China-Iran will bide their time and they will strike back. Russia-China-Iran are not “good guys” but then the Anglo-Zionists are murdering scum as well. Buy some Popcorn it is going to be some show when it kicks off – economic collapse and war. Please Lord return quickly.
The following is a report of a lecture held at Adelaide University (on 13 Nov 2019). The speakers were Boaz Ganor and Ehud Yaari.
The two speakers are experts in their fields and knowledgeable on the Geo-politics of the Middle East. What follows are my impressions and a paraphrase of some important themes. As I did not take notes, my bad for any misrepresentation. I will contact the speakers and make them aware in case they wish to add any clarification or corrections.
The Palestinian problem
Ehud Yarri placed his phone on the table and it immediately began to ping. The phone was being updated with news on the rocket attacks. This is what is currently happening in Israel:
A rather dramatic introduction to a lecture discussing threats. Solutions to the Palestinian problem were discussed. The “one state” or “one man, one vote” option was rejected as it is inevitable that demographics would eventually create a minority Jewish nation. So there is no chance of completely integrating Jew and Arab via the ballot box and democratic voting. The two state solution was also rejected. Gaza is a “state-let” and is obviously geographically separated from the West Bank. How can this entity function as an independent sovereign nation with a military? It is not politically viable, moreover, Ehud Yarri points out that corruption, patronage and dysfunction bedevils the Palestinian modus operandi. Ehud Yarri proposed walking away but offering help and a “strong embrace”. It is obvious that a “strong embrace” can be interpreted in many ways. A python has a strong embrace. However, I am sure that Ehud Yarri meant it in a sympathetic fashion. His desire for real engagement and sustainable peace was (in my view) genuine. The problem is (as he admits) that when Sharon walked away from Gaza by dismantling all of the Israeli settlements in 2005 it ultimately led to the current Hamas government in Gaza. It did not lead to any detente or improved conditions for Palestinians. They are basically left stewing in their own juice in a dysfunctional enclave, supported by US subsidies. In my opinion completely disengaging is not a solution either. Ehud Yarri’s reference to the occasional need to “mow the grass” was presumably in the context of the recent operations that resulted in retaliatory rocket attacks. When I mow the grass at home it does not fire rockets back at me! Suffice to say that any “solution” that perpetuates continuing low level conflict is in my view no solution. Nobody wins.
It seems then that the Israelis are weary of trying to find a Palestinian solution. The Palestinians are like a festering sore that will not heal. The opinion seems to be shared by the other Arab nations in the region. Ehud Yarri succinctly stated that the Arabs do not announce policy changes “in front of the microphone”. It is obvious that there has been a shift in attitude towards Israel among many Arab nations. Yet, the Palestinian problem remains, not only in Israel but also in neighboring Jordan. While the Arab countries are becoming more friendly non-Arab states like Turkey and Iran are becoming more hostile.
However, I for one cannot blame the Palestinians. They have taken a leaf out of the Jewish play-book and played their “victim” status to perfection. The Palestinians are victims. They are the victims of their own venal leadership, victims of Geo-political strategy and victims of Zionism. Inconvenient they might be, but they will not voluntarily disappear into that long dark night. In many ways their defiant obstinacy matches that of the ancient Hebrews, who God called a stubborn and stiff-necked generation.
The Israeli Election
Ehud Yarri stated that after two elections at stalemate and with a third looming his “wet dream” was that a unity government could be formed with a rotating Prime Minister Ship. Nentanyahu could possibly take the first “turn” and delay his judicial woe by launching an appeal that could take as long as four years to reach any conclusion.
The Trump Peace
According to Ehud Yarri the Trump peace initiative would not achieve anything. Kushner et al had been made aware of the intransigence and hopeless condition of the Palestinians. Although Trump had gifted Israel the embassy and the Golan, those were mere gestures. His withdrawal from Syria and “back-down” to Iran are considered disappointing and dangerous.
The Arab Spring
The other speaker, Boaz Ganor is well connected in the counter-terrorism and intelligence worlds. He has been to the White House and met political scientist and diplomat Condoleezza Rice who was the Secretary of State under George Bush. Boaz Ganor started his discourse with a reference to the title of the talk “Vision” stating that even the prophets would have difficulty with a “vision” of Israel’s future. This reminded me of Proverbs 29v.8: –
"Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he".
The nation does not keep the law like Abraham did (Gen 26:5). Their forefather Abraham kept the whole Law before it was even given! (LOL) If only they knew what that meant (John 8:39).
The discussion moved onto the subject of the “Arab Spring” the result of youthful uprisings encouraged by the internet and the desire to have democratic “freedoms” like the West. However, Boaz Ganor said that the Israeli’s did not call it the “Arab Spring” but rather the “Arab Winter” because under the Muslim Brotherhood countries like Egypt became Islamic theocracies. President Barack Obama had signaled the change to the Muslim world in a speech called “A New Beginning” on 4 June 2009, from the Major Reception Hall at Cairo University in Egypt. Members of the Muslim Brotherhood “sat in the front row”. As soon as “democratic” elections were held the people voted the Brotherhood into power who proceeded to write a constitution for an Islamic theocracy based on Sharia law. As we know, the brotherhood government was overthrow and replaced by the military el-Sisi by a coup d’état in 2012.
At this point I questioned why, if the West believes in democracy, they ignored the will of the Egyptian people to elect an Islamic government. Moreover, I stated that the uprisings were not spontaneous as the neoconservatives had stated that seven countries would face regime change over a five year period. I pointed out that a hidden hand was at work in the recent Turkish coup (aligning Turkey towards Russia) and in the Saudi coup that brought MBS to power. For good measure I asked if any WMD had been found yet in Iraq (LOL). Of course, this drew an exchange of looks between the two speakers and provoked some dissembling but no real answers.
The question of Iran and Russia
Boaz Ganor (and Ehud Yarri) emphasized that Russia was not a super power and had a small economy. They stressed that Israeli military action in Syria was coordinated with Russia, that Putin has a flat in Jerusalem and that Netanyahu spends a lot of time phoning and joking with Putin and flying up and back to Sochi. Russia may not be a superpower but Putin is smart and he is a player and with a million Russian Jews living in Israel he has influence.
Hezbollah operates as Iran’s proxy in Lebanon and they fired approximately 3,000 rockets at Israel over a 40 day period in 2006. Both speakers stressed that Iran now possesses GPS guided missiles that are very accurate as the Saudi oil field attack (which they blame on Iran) has demonstrated. Iran now has the capability to fire an overwhelming 3,000 rockets a day. From Israel’s viewpoint the situation looks grim especially with the Iranian nuclear build up and what they consider a psychopathic leadership intent on destroying the nation.
Of course, from an Iranian perspective the situation looks entirely different as they see Israel as a colonial western outpost (aberration) and because historically Iran experienced a coup of their democratically elected government when they nationalized their oil resources they no longer trust the West. They do not want a bar of western Neo-classical economics, Anglo-Zionist capitalism or “democracy” (who can blame them?). The Persians (Iranians) are an ancient civilization, they are an industrious, clever people, who are hospitable and have for centuries entertained a Jewish religious community.
The question of war
Both speakers gauge that war is inevitable. For them it is a question of determining the correct moment when a point of “no return” in the development of a nuclear arsenal is achieved by Iran. However, the build up of conventional Iranian weaponry is also threatening.
Final public question/remark
My last question/remark evoked a response from Ehud that still remains with me and makes me sad. What I said to both speakers was that they neglected the “bigger picture” that the world was in transition from a uni-polar to a multi-polar system. Dollar hegemony was coming to an end as was US power and Neo-classical economics and Anglo-Zionist capitalism was “shaking on its foundations”. Was Israel facing an existential crisis, and would the US help? Both speakers looked perturbed, Boaz Ganor denied that the coming crisis was existential but Ehud Yarri said….. In the end no one will help us. We are all alone.
The impending catastrophe is no reason for schadenfreude or a case of you reap what you sow. It is an unnecessary tragedy that haunts me and fills me with sadness. It is the time of Jacobs trouble caused by his deception and attempt at self-deliverance. You cannot rule with God until you realize that God rules. You cannot struggle with man and at the same time wrestle God. You will be forced to make supplications with strong tears and crying. Until Jacob repents and overcomes his old nature he will have no peace or security.
Your real friends are not the Christian-Zionists who encourage your bad behavior and act as your cheer leaders. They are false prophets. Your real friends are those who tell you to your face that you are wrong and need to repent. Turn back to God and accept his messiah. The messiah is not God. Neither is he another bar Kochba. He is Jesus the son of God and he invites you to join him in becoming sons and daughters. This time he comes not as a “suffering servant” but as King of Kings bearing divine authority. Make sure you are not among his enemies.
I have informed both speakers and will post any response, clarifications or corrections
O’Donnell interviewed MBS for 60 minutes (see below for a brief clip):
Oil prices would likely soar to “unimaginable” highs that we “haven’t seen in our lifetimes” as global supplies are disrupted.
“If the world does not take a strong and firm action to deter Iran, we will see further escalations that will threaten world interests. Oil supplies will be disrupted and oil prices will jump to unimaginably high numbers that we haven’t seen in our lifetimes.”
Finally, touching on the issue of a ceasefire in Yemen, MbS said Saudi Arabia is working diligently toward peace. He added that he considers the Houthi-backed ceasefire a “positive step.”
Not long after, O’Donnell wrapped up the interview with a final question: “What lessons have you learned? And have you made mistakes?
“Of course I’ve made mistakes,” MbS insisted.
"Even prophets make mistakes, so how come we, as humans, expect not to make mistakes?"
Well I don’t know any prophets who saw people into pieces….mind you Manasseh had the prophet Isaiah sawed in half. Perhaps it is a middle east tradition handed down by despots? (p.s. MBS is opening his country up to tourism. Book now and get your visa’s to avoid the rush. Public executions are must see. No infidels allowed in Mecca or Medina. And no alcohol. And cover up. Have fun!!)
The truth is that one way or another we will never know exactly what (or who) lies behind this. It is perhaps coincidence that John Bolton was recently sacked, coincidence that Aramco requires higher oil prices for the upcoming IPO, coincidence that Bibi is struggling in his upcoming election, coincidence that the US and Israel are signing a mutual defense pact and coincidence that a nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the world’s #1 defense & national security think tank posted a tweet four days ago that warned about this very instillation being attacked. Could this be how the NeoCons save a flailing Netanyahu and establish a next election win for Trump?
However, Pompeo says that Iran is behind it and as Trump has sacked the warmonger Bolton they must be speaking the truth. They obviously do not want war. And Pompeo who lies and cheats and steals (his words not mine) is now telling the truth:
Are ye not entertained?
Frankly, at this point it doesn’t really matter “who did it”. Both Israel and the USA have demonstrated that they are determined for war. And Saudi Arabia has been decimating Yemen and perpetrating war crimes. So, if the Houthis have manged to strike at the Saudi’s (who don’t get their hands dirty but use mercenaries) good on them. Hit them where it hurts (in the pocket)….perhaps it will make the Saudi royals rethink when they have less to spend on Call Girls, drugs and yachts while exporting extreme Wahhabism all over the world. As one comment said;
Greatest strength, greatest weakness. All the Saudi Royalty had to do with its vast wealth is figure out a way to spread it around. Instead, in their malice and delusion, they wanted to become an imperial power. With less success than Italy. It could have become the Denmark of its neighborhood. Competent, modern, instead it painted bull's eyes on its back by exporting religious bigotry. Saudi Arabia, the last home of Idi Amin.
Moon of Alabama states that the Houthis claimed internal support from “the cooperation of honorable and free men within the Kingdom.” If true this would make the Saudi’s even more paranoid than usual. There is no love lost between MBS and some of the other royals that he ousted with a coup. On some of the drone attack videos gunfire can be heard….perhaps dissidents staged ground support? Also Moon of Alabama suggests that Iraq may have been a drone launch site (remember Israeli fighter jets recently attacked Iraq and the country has a Shiite majority).
Fox news just said 80% of Saudi production has shut down and Dept. of energy head Rick Perry says he will open up the Strategic oil reserve. Whoopee! Higher prices for all oil producers – at least the U.S. shale industry will benefit as will the float of Aramco. As long as the attacks are “manageable” it is win, win. What is not to like? Perhaps I am being too cynical.
The emerging Beast
What we are witnessing is the emergence of the Beast power in the Gulf region. It is an allegiance between the various Arab states with Israel in charge (the Harlot).
" And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast " (Rev 17:12-13).
The territory of the ten kings is that spoken of in Genesis 15:
Why Israel is quietly cosying up to Gulf monarchies
"Evidence is mounting of increasingly close ties between Israel and five of the six members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) – none of which have formal relations with the Jewish state".
“Cooperation in different ways and at different levels isn’t necessarily visible above the surface, but what is below the surface is far greater than at any other period.”
"But in spite of these recent flashes of publicity, hard evidence of Israeli ties with the Gulf states is still rare – because they remain largely covert".
"The Israelis quietly participated in joint military exercises with UAE forces, both in the US and in Greece, from 2016. Last year UAE military personnel reportedly visited an Israeli airbase to review the operations of US-made F-35 fighter jets, though this was denied by Israel. Clandestine cooperation is believed to include Israeli intelligence surveillance of Iran, and the sale of Israeli drones used in the war in Yemen".
"In addition to shared contempt for Iran, the Gulf states and Israel have been brought together by a common hostility to Islamist parties".
"The attitudes of Gulf governments have clearly changed. But the bottom line is that Israel has failed to provide the incentives required for the Saudis and their allies to come out of the closet, to allow them to reconcile geopolitical logic with popular sentiment, because it has not offered anything approaching an acceptable deal for the Palestinians. “Everyone knows about the rapprochement with Israel, but no one can talk about it publicly, and no one can advocate it because there is nothing for the Palestinians in return,” concludes an Arab analyst in Abu Dhabi. “The assumption is that if it was going to happen openly, it would have to be in return for something big, and it does not look as though that is going to happen."
By “his wife” the article means that the Jewish billionaire and extreme Zionist Sheldon Adelson who supports both Netanyahu’s and Trump, recently turned against Bibi;
"To add reputational insult to injury, Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, Bibi’s stalwart U.S. financial supporters, are reported by the Israeli press to have told authorities investigating Netanyahu’s alleged corruption that the prime minister’s wife, Sarah, is “crazy” and “decides everything.” That will not help the PM at the polls."
As one commentator remarks;
They are trying to keep people from connecting the dots. Trying to reverse perception after their exposure at apex. Its the same BS with the phony fight between Mossad Jewish Mafia-Zuckerberg and Bibi. Saw more of that today with other stuff too. Reminiscent of the old Soros is after Israel bit. Its amazing how well these simple productions can work. Too late for that now though. Next it will be Bezos vs. The Intel community...lol
Looks like they are getting ready to introduce us either to “Dear Leader” or perhaps the “antichrist” or maybe they are one and the same thing? After-all, they all seem to want total control, religious or otherwise:
Use algo’s to mind read
Use algo’s to data-mine
Use algo’s to psychologically profile and manipulate
It seems that despite the legal shenanigans in a US-court the Grace-1 tanker has been released.
The Supreme Court in the British territory of Gibraltar has approved the release of an Iranian oil tanker that was seized last month by the United Kingdom, despite last-minute efforts by the United States to halt its release.
Clown Prince MBS
It seems that the clown prince has also been outsmarted by the Houthis and their Iranian allies. He may be called Mohammad bin Salman (son of Solomon) he is not. Solomon was wise enough to propose cutting a baby in half to ascertain the true mother. The clown prince ain’t no Solomon even though he wants to cut people up with a bone saw.
This is what Tom Luongo has to say;
The Houthis attacked the Shaybah oilfield and refinery complex which produces more than 1 million barrels of oil per day. This is a direct attack on the Saudis’ ability to function as a somewhat sustainable economic and political power.
Apparently, the Houthis now make their own drones with help from Iran (who learnt a lot from the US drones that they shot down). These drones are not sophisticated and probably per-programmed but they fly 1,000 km and hit the target (oil infrastructure). Saudi is already struggling with a deficit and this will make things worse. Looks like they will be forced to talk peace (and postpone fantasy land neom) – serves them right for picking on their neighbor.
The Saudis have already lost so much in their botched attempt to overthrow Bashar al-Assad in Syria, the blockade of Qatar and to force a political realignment in Lebanon. None of Mohammed bin Salman’s strong arm tactics have succeeded in doing anything other than alienate more members of the Gulf Cooperation Council and put his benefactors in Washington in very hot water, politically.
