Saudi Arabia has detained three senior Saudi princes including Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, the younger brother of King Salman, and Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the king's nephew, for allegedly planning a coup, sources with knowledge of the matter said.  Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, King Salman's son and de facto ruler of the country, the world's top oil exporter and a key U.S. ally, has moved to consolidate power since ousting Mohammed bin Nayef as heir to the throne in a 2017 palace coup. Later that year, he arrested several royals and other prominent Saudis, holding them for months at Riyadh's Ritz-Carlton hotel in an anti-corruption campaign that caused shockwaves at home and abroad.

Comments:

Sheik Yerbouiti who bears a strong resemblance to Hillary Clinton is said to be manipulating the House of Saud. Wants Saudi Arabia to become an importer of American oil.

My guess is, Trump's Intel agencies are his now, and they warned the Saudis about this coup attempt. Together, Trump and the Saudis are cleaning up a HUGE part of the Deep State Swamp, does anyone realize that? The original purge of all those military and princely royals are the ones who were funding off the books missions via our own State Department. A dirty business, and Trump shut it down. All the purges are ridding the Saudis of their globalist Bush friends, and that has to have been a huge blow to Poppy Bush to see his globalist legacy go down in flames while he was still alive to see it. This King made the right, if radical, choice for his heir with this CP. I hope that both of them survive to see the corruption gone in their nation.

Sounds like much of the history of European royals in past centuries. Gold and power are more important than blood, history has shown.

I bet these coup plotters don't become CNN/ MSNBC contributors or land huge book deals. That's the difference between them and us.

London - Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg met Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai at Britain's University of Oxford on Tuesday and posed for a photo together. Yousafzai, widely known by her first name, Malala, is a student at the University of Oxford. The 22-year-old posted a photo on Instagram of herself and Thunberg sitting on a bench with their arms around each other, with a caption "Thank you, @gretathunberg" and a heart emoji. Thunberg, 17, is in the United Kingdom to join a school strike in Bristol on Friday. Both women shot to worldwide fame after standing up for major global issues: climate change and women's education.

It's the most powerful greenhouse gas known to humanity, and emissions have risen rapidly in recent years, the BBC has learned. Sulphur hexafluoride, or SF6, is widely used in the electrical industry to prevent short circuits and accidents. But leaks of the little-known gas in the UK and the rest of the EU in 2017 were the equivalent of putting an extra 1.3 million cars on the road.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday waxed hyperbolic about the 2020 presidential election, telling an audience that “civilization as we know it is at stake.”Pelosi made the remark during a speech at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, according to Fox News correspondent Rob DiRienzo. (Tweet) Pelosi’s speech also touched on other topics, including women in politics. “Just generally, I usually always cast my vote for a woman. I just do,” she told attendees.

Sunday on ABC News’ “This Week,” former Chicago Mayor and former President Barack Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel sounded off on the 2020 presidential race amid the coronavirus outbreak. Emanuel said the coronavirus precautions preventing President Donald Trump from having his typical rallies and thus missing out on the admiration he craves will be “devastating” and will “psychologically torment him.”“This administration right now looks like they couldn’t organize a one-car parade,” Emanuel stated. “And I think here’s what’s devastating for Donald Trump — beyond the fact that this requires science, management, data and being transparent, which are all his weaknesses —

A British guest on MSNBC Live has sparked outrage after saying 'many people' consider Meghan Markle to be 'five clicks up from trailer trash'. The show's anchor, Lindsey Reiser, ended the interview about Prince Harry and Meghan stepping back from royal duties immediately following the remark from British reporter Victoria Mather. The comment from the journalist - who has worked for The Telegraph and Vanity Fair - came as she was discussing how the Duchess of Sussex has been 'disrespectful' to the royal family and its protocol.

Axios reports Monday that former Vice President Joe Biden’s inner circle is already discussing a list of Cabinet picks. Many of the names would return from the Obama administration, constituting an effective “third term.”Axios says that former Secretary of State John Kerry could return in that role, or be appointed to a new Cabinet-level climate change position.Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice — who was never nominated for Secretary of State because of fears she would not survive confirmation after misleading the nation about the Benghazi attacks — could find her way to that position

Jane Fonda is throwing her support behind Bernie Sanders in the 2020 presidential race due to his position on climate change. The 82-year-old celebrity spoke ahead of another Fire Drill Friday protest in Los Angeles where she noted that since Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar, two candidates she reportedly donated to, are out of the race, she’s backing Sanders to be the Democratic nominee to go up against Donald Trump in the 2020 general election. "We have to get a climate president in office, and there’s only one right now, and that’s Bernie Sanders,"

..And it begins; right on cue.The DNC and CNN collaborate to provide Joe Biden with his preferred comfort format for the next debate on March 15th between Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. The Club knows Biden does best in debate formats when sitting down at a desk; just like the 2012 debate between Biden and Paul Ryan. CNN is hosting the debate, and CNN is the most friendly control operation for the needs of the Club. So what happens… CNN and The Club agree to a small venue town hall format where Joe Biden will be sitting down at a desk to debate Bernie Sanders.

I found myself thinking over the weekend that with Joe Biden now favored to win the nomination, it won’t be long before the press starts the quadrennial veepstakes ritual. And yesterday—boom!—it arrived in spades. The coronavirus may be spreading worldwide, Wall Street may be having a bloodbath, and Biden has yet to beat Bernie Sanders in Michigan and other key states. But nothing stops the VP speculation. There’s an added twist this year, which is the widespread expectation—and, in some quarters, demand—that the Democratic running mate will be a woman.

DEARBORN, Mich. — The second highest, hardest glass ceiling is pretty good too, right? With the Democratic presidential nominee all but certain to be a man, party activists, elected officials and voters are setting their sights on the biggest consolation prize in American politics: the vice presidency. (Snip) “There must be a woman on this ticket,” said Cecile Richards, a longtime abortion rights activist and a founder of Supermajority. “What is really important to see is representation, a commitment to the issues that women care about and a commitment to do something about it.” The selection of a female vice

Nations are closing borders, stocks are plummeting and a New York Times headline reads: “The Coronavirus Has Put the World’s Economy in Survival Mode.” Both political parties have realized the crisis could severely impact the November elections — House, Senate, presidency. And sacré bleu, they’ve even shuttered the Louvre! Some of these reactions are understand­able, much of it pure hysteria. Meanwhile, the spread of the virus continues to slow. More than 18,000 Americans have died from this season’s generic flu so far, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Everyone remembers how Starbucks responded to allegations of systemic racism by closing down for a whole day of penance (which meant company-wide sensitivity training) followed by the decision that they would open all their locations—and most especially their bathrooms—to anyone without requiring a product purchase. In other words, it was the equivalent of putting out signs saying, “Loitering Welcome Here.” As they say on the Interwebs, you’ll never guess what happened next! Actually, you don’t need to guess, but in case you’re curious, we have some social science on the question, in the form of a paper from two researchers at Boston College and one at the University of Texas,

Jill Biden has a Doctor of Education degree from the University of Delaware, and she never lets the American people forget it. Mrs. Biden, wife of former Vice President Joe Biden, insists on being referred to as “Dr.” Biden. Her Twitter handle is @DrBiden. The press has largely acquiesced: Even though it has persistent trouble referring to actual pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson as “Dr.” Ben Carson, it is rare indeed to ever see a reference to Jill Biden without “Dr.” preceding her name. There’s nothing wrong with being proud of one’s educational achievements, of course. But Mrs. Biden’s unrelenting insistence on being called “Dr.” sometimes leads to confusion.
