Jared Kushner slurred slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi as a ‘terrorist’: Michael Wolff book

Published

on

Jared Kushner slurred slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi as a “terrorist” during an off-the-record conversation with a reporter, according to a new book.

Michael Wolff claims in his forthcoming book, “Siege,” that Kushner — a senior White House adviser and President Donald Trump’s son-in-law — denied Khashoggi was a journalist and excused his murder by Saudi intelligence, reported Vanity Fair.

“This guy was the link between certain factions in the royal family and Osama (bin Laden),” Kushner said, according to Wolff. “We know that. A journalist? Come on. This was a terrorist masquerading as a journalist.”

Kushner is close to Saudi crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman, who is believed to have ordered the brutal October 2018 murder of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who lived in the United States.

“I think he’s complicit in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi to the highest level possible,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) after meeting with CIA director Gina Haspel to discuss the slaying.

Khashoggi was from a prominent Saudi family and had once been the royal family’s spokesman, and he had interviewed bin Laden many times since the early 1980s.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday angrily hit back at Iran after the nation accused him of being "retarded."

Writing on Twitter, the president accused Iran of making a "very ignorant and insulting statement" against him, which he said "only shows that they do not understand reality."

The president then threatened the nation with "obliteration" if it didn't wise up.

"Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force," he wrote. "In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!"

....Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality. Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!

However, after booking the condo, Ozyesilpinar sent her messages saying that she was having problems processing her credit cards. After Brown didn't initially respond to those messages, Ozyesilpinar sent her a racist message telling her that she was hurting the reputations of other black people.

‘Incoherent’ Trump blistered by ex-National Security Council member for acting as Putin’s unwitting stooge

Published

on

In a ferocious column for Politico, a former member of the National Security Council who served under both President George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton called out Donald Trump for what he called the president's "incomprehensible" policies when it comes to Russia.

According to Andrew S. Weiss, vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment, the American president is likely the best friend Russian President Vladimir Putin could wish for.

Pointing out that Trump's meeting with Putin in Osaka is only days away, Weiss, who worked on Russian affairs in the State Department, said the get-together is happening just as three government officials with the most experience dealing with Russia -- Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Joseph Dunford, the NSC’s in-house Russia expert Fiona Hill, and U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman -- are leaving the administration.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
