    Saudi Arabia has warned the United States that a proposed U.S. law that could hold the kingdom responsible for any role in the Sept 11, 2001, attacks would erode global investor confidence in America, its foreign minister said on Monday. The minister, Adel al-Jubeir, speaking to reporters in Geneva after talks with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, which mainly focused on Syria, denied that Saudi Arabia had "threatened" to withdraw investment from its close ally. The New York Times reported last month that the Riyadh government had threatened to sell up to $750 billion worth of American assets should...

    When Barbara Araujo and Allan Alves got married three years ago, they had big plans: open a business, buy a house and start a family. But with Brazil plunging into its worst recession in over two decades -- hopes for a brighter future are fading. The Brazilian economy shrank 3.8% in 2015, according to government data published Thursday. That's the biggest annual drop since 1990 and the country is in its longest recession since the 1930s.

    The connection between Alwaleed, Murdoch, Abedin, Hillary Clinton and Saudi Arabia are troubling given a number of recent events. Prince Alwaleed is boasting about his role in impacting U.S. elections. As Breitbart News Networks Aaron Klein reported, the Saudi Arabian news site Sabq claims that Alwaweed Bin Talal caused a decline in Trumps popularity. CNN reported in 2008 that donations to the William J. Clinton Foundation include amounts of $10 million to $25 million from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Huma Abedin was hired as a consultant to the William J. Clinton Foundation after Clinton left her role as Secretary...

Prince Talal noticed and issued a response. It's not clear what bailouts Talal is referring to, but this certainly is a rocky start to diplomatic relations should Trump win the White House. This isn't the first time the two have feuded. In the past, Trump referred to Talal as a "dopey" prince. Prince Talal noticed and issued a response.

    Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf countries are scooping up farmland in drought-afflicted regions of the U.S. Southwest, and that has some people in California and Arizona seeing red. Saudi Arabia grows alfalfa hay in both states for shipment back to its domestic dairy herds. In another real-life example of the world's interconnected economy, the Saudis increasingly look to produce animal feed overseas in order to save water in their own territory, most of which is desert. Privately held Fondomonte California on Sunday announced that it bought 1,790 acres of farmland in Blythe, California -- an agricultural town along the...

    To advance its diplomatic opening to Iran, the administration spied on both law-abiding US citizens and on US lawmakers. It is far from clear why senior Obama administration officials told The Wall Street Journal that under President Barack Obama, the National Security Agency has been aggressively spying not only on Israeli officials but on US citizens and lawmakers who communicate with Israeli officials. Perhaps they were trying to make Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu look like a fool. After all, the article concludes that the NSA intercepts of these communications "revealed one surprise."

    Prince Alwaleed, Saudi Arabia’s self-proclaimed Warren Buffett, has seen his fund, Kingdom Holdings, return 52% since Sept. 5, when it hit a 52-week low. And the prince has told Bloomberg that there’s more where that came from. “We have hidden treasures, lots of rich assets that aren’t publicly traded,” Alwaleed, 58, said by phone from Crans-Montana, Switzerland, where he was vacationing with his family. “They are worth more than $11 billion to $12 billion, and the market could value them at more than double that.”

    For most people, even featuring in the Forbes list of the world's billionaires would be cause for celebration, but for Prince Alwaleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, appearing at number 26 with $20bn (Ł15bn) was an insult. The prince, one of the most influential businessmen in the Middle East, insists the list undervalues him by $9.6bn. He has vowed to sever all ties with the group's reporters and accused them of damaging US-Saudi relations. In response, the editor of the influential list has written a stinging rebuke saying the prince considers a top-10 ranking one of his priorities, systematically exaggerates...

    Searching old newspapers is one of my favorite pastimes, and I have tried to use them many times to shed light on current events - or to inform readers about how the past is prologue to our very interesting present-day quandaries. Recently, I came across a syndicated column from November 1979 that seemed to point 30 years into the future toward an obscure campaign issue that arose briefly in the 2008 presidential campaign. Though by no means definitive, it provides an interesting insight, at least, into how Chicago politics intersected with the black power movement and Middle Eastern money at...

    A spike in the price of oil, the spigot of which is largely controlled by the Saudis, was instrumental in the financial collapse which resulted in the election of Obama as president. At the same time, a Saudi Prince, pulls the strings at Fox News, though he is nominally not the largest shareholder. He saved them from a hostile takeover and continues to provide protection. This provides a leash on Fox News to prevent them from becoming too aggressive in their attacks on Obama. Notice that Fox News does not support Obama's impeachment/removal and their commentators have openly openly mocked...

    From dwarves to Dems: There should be no big mystery as to why Alwaleed bin Talal, the Saudi prince Bill Gates talked into giving away all his money to charity, is dumping his riches. No one’s given away all of his money since the last saint more than 2000 years ago. Charity is no longer as conventional as it once was. In the case of the notorious Clinton Foundation, charity eloped with power and has never been the same. Is Prince bin Talal, whose $32 billion fortune makes it possible, about to buy immortality for the Democrats? Now that Barack...

    by Shoebat Foundation on November 20, 2013 i If Barack Obama is losing Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, he may have another significant problem to deal with. Alwaleed is the second largest shareholder of Newscorp., Fox News Channel’s parent company. During an exchange with Bloomberg’s Erik Schatzker, Alwaleed was quite openly critical of Obama, saying he is “not succeeding”. While this conversation focused on U.S. domestic policies, Alwaleed’s criticism very well may have something to do with foreign policy. If Barack Obama is losing Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, he may have another significant problem to deal with. Alwaleed is...

    Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal--million dollar benefactor of Middle East studies programs at Harvard University, Georgetown University, and beyond--spoke at Harvard this past Wednesday. The prince touts himself as a model of liberalism in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia--in a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed, he advocated for reform among Middle Eastern monarchies in response to the demands of the "Arab Spring"--and he has always claimed that his funding for Middle East studies in the U.S. springs from nothing more than a desire to promote cross-cultural understanding. Yet, as the following excerpt from this Harvard Crimson article reveals, the underlying...

Bodine can remember, she affirmed in her February 3 Georgetown University luncheon lecture, “Yemen: If This is a Policy Success, What Does Failure Look Like?”  The truth of Bodine’s sobering presentation to a fifty-person conference room packed to standing-room-only was confirmed when, eight days later, America’s embassy in the capital Sanaa fell to Houthi rebels and U.S. Marines were forced to destroy their...

    Fox News Correspondent James Rosen reported on Wednesday night that a “major investor in the parent company” of Fox News has been implicated in financing the terrorist group al-Qaeda. Rosen made the embarrassing disclosure in a story on the channel’s “Special Report” show hosted by Bret Baier. The alleged al-Qaeda financier, Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, is a very close friend of Rupert Murdoch and his family, who control major media companies like News Corp and 21st Century Fox. The latter is now the parent company of the Fox News Channel. Fox News is to be congratulated for reporting...

    Few individual investors have quite as much capital to deploy as Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal of Saudi Arabia. Through his Kingdom Holding , he holds significant stakes in companies including Citigroup C -0.41%, Twitter TWTR +1.28% – and, until recently, News Corporation. The Prince hasn’t sold out completely – he still owns about 1% of the company, as well as a separate 6.6% shareholding in 21st Century Fox Inc which in itself is worth about $1.7 billion – but he previously also held 6.6% of News Corp NWSA 0%, or a total of 13.184 million class B shares. He’s shed...

    Portia Crowe January 12, 2015Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the eccentric Saudi billionaire once labeled the "Arabian Warren Buffett," predicted that oil would never again reach $100 a barrel. "The price of oil above $100 is artificial," he said. "It's not correct." That's in an interview with Maria Bartiromo for USA Today, in which the business magnate blamed oversupply and weak demand for the recent drop in oil prices. He also predicted hard times ahead for America's shale-oil and gas industries. "No one knows for sure what price is the breaking point for shale," he said. "Wells have a higher production...
