By: Sunday September 14, 2014 8:00 pm

Late Night: Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad ISIS?

By: Sunday August 24, 2014 8:00 pm

Even as the Western media happily serves as its stenographers in hyping their self-alleged prowess, the pickup-driving punks of ISIS are gradually losing the territory they’d gained in their earlier sprint across the dry-as-a-bone mud flats of the Sunni portion of Iraq.

The Mysterious Parisian Heist

By: Tuesday August 19, 2014 7:06 pm

Last Sunday, an anonymous Saudi Prince’s convoy was robbed en route to a Paris airport from a swanky, Saudi-owned luxury hotel. Police suspect the theft was a well planned, inside job because the stolen car appeared to be selected for its invaluable contents.

Anyone who thinks Congress (especially Congressional Republicans) will happily and readily go along with anything Obama says he wants, raise your hand. Then smack yourself on the forehead with it.

Max Boot Pretends Saudi Arabia Not Already Funding Extremists In Middle East

By: Thursday June 19, 2014 2:21 pm

Max Boot is a senior fellow at CFR and, along with Michael Doran of the Brookings Institute, wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post that included claims so demonstrably and obviously false that one can only reason they were included to be deliberately misleading.

ISIS and Saudi Arabia

By: Tuesday June 17, 2014 10:15 am

The Saudi Royal Family holds a tenuous power in the Kingdom. In order to tamp down rebellion against the House of Saud by ultra-Wahhabi extremists, the Saudis have devised a scheme where radical jihadi groups are funded extravagantly through networks of Saudi charities around the world. Radical Saudi citizens are encouraged and funded to express their zeal for jihad outside of the Kingdom in countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kosovo, Chechnya, Iraq, and Syria, while leaving the Saudi royals free from rebellion in the Kingdom.

By: Thursday April 3, 2014 12:51 pm

Our partners in peace in Saudi Arabia (where most of the 9/11 hijackers came from) has now made it a crime to not believe in God. In fact, not just a crime, an act of terrorism.

Saudis Bankrolling Israel’s Mossad: More Confirmation?

By: Saturday March 8, 2014 5:20 pm

I speculated there was a strong likelihood that Saudi Arabia was bankrolling Israel’s Mossad. Those funds paid for, among other things, the assassinations of several of Iran’s top nuclear experts over the past couple of years. That cooperation was, I wrote, the latest bizarre development in a clandestine alliance between the Zionist State of Israel and Saudi Arabia, guardian of Islam’s most holy site.
