    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.

A ballot measure before the state Legislature would create a carbon tax of $25 per metric ton of fossil fuel emissions burned in Washington, while reducing taxes. ...

    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...

    Earlier today GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump retweeted an obviously fake photo featuring a woman in a burqa, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and Saudi Prince Al-Waleed Talal. 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. It's not clear what bailouts Talal is referring to, but this certainly is...

    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...
  • Top US Admiral Fired For Questioning Obama Purchase Of Mansion In Dubai (Russian propaganda)

    A stunning new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that one of the United States Navy’s top commanders was relieved of his command a few hours ago after he sent out an “email/posting” revealing that President Barack Obama was in the process of purchasing a multi-million dollar seaside luxury villa in the United Arab Emirates city (UAE) of Dubai. According to this report, the Commander of the US Navy’s Carrier Strike Group 15, Rear Admiral Rick Williams, posted a “pointed” query on 8 January [since deleted] to the US Naval Institute’s “Readiness Kill Chain” “recipients/responders”...

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 1-5-15 | CAROLINE B. GLICK
    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." "Mr. Netanyahu and some of his allies voiced...

    Prince Alwaleed, Saudi Arabias 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 theres more where that came from. We have hidden treasures, lots of rich assets that arent 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 (15bn) 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...

    Stop Obama Now - San Diego ^ | 10/19/2011 | Roger-SD
    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...
