    Is it a coincidence that a website for discussion among Donald Trump's most loyal supporters went down mid-Monday this week as the latest slew of assaults against the President of the United State were launched?.... ...signs of self-censorship have appeared on the site including the removal of an entire post, comments and all, one day after its posting. The Peter Hitchens "Mail on Sunday" column was published right after the alleged "poison gas" attack by the Assad regime in Syria and the military response to it. (Tomahawks launched on a Syrian air base). The column cited foreign influences on the...

    While Saudi Arabia’s economy is currently suffering from an 18-month decline in oil prices and soaring unemployment rates, they are planning for a future in which they won’t have to worry about the price of oil at all. Speaking of the plans outlined in Vision 2030, Saudi finance minister Mohammed Al Jadaan told CNN, "We will not really care much whether the price is 40, 45, 50, 55 at that time because we have gone significantly out of our way to be independent of the oil price...We are planning to totally [end] that dependency that we have been living for...

    Sustainable Development is harmonization of our system of government with the global government envisioned by billionaire elites Mixed-use apartments overbuilt to suffocating capacity The recently installed speed tables around the mall are too high, the asphalt around is crumbling and deep pools of rain water are gathering around them as there is no proper drainage. These were totally unnecessary; on any given day traffic is backed up and very slow, nobody is speeding. They were installed to make it more difficult for people to use their cars to go shopping; the regional planners want residents to use the new metro...

    The same Trump so many liberals criticized for hating Muslims was given a welcome fit for a king by 50 Muslim leaders, all while knowing the US president loves the Zionist idea of the right of the Jews over their historic ancestral homeland, Zion, and their ancient capital Jerusalem. In his own way, Trump apparently understands the Middle East more than all the Middle East analysts and political advisors. In this region, leaders respect the strong and despise a leader who weakens his allies. Arab leaders appreciate his standing with Israel because they know that by doing so he will...

    Celebrating their success in retaining blue-collar jobs is one way Republicans are winning the votes of working-class Americans. Whew! For once, one of my predictions was correct: Donald Trump had a great visit to Saudi Arabia. It was a great visit for him, it was a great visit for the Saudis and the other Arab Gulf states, and—last but not least—it was a great visit for magical, glowing orbs. I want to spend a little time talking about one of the reasons why the trip went so well. I’ll warn you: This is a somewhat taboo subject for progressive foreign-policy...

    Bangladeshi pundit Anushay Hossain writes for CNN: "The ugly truth behind Saudi Arabia’s love for Melania Trump" is that her husband, President Donald Trump, makes her behave the way "the Saudi government likes women to behave." Furthermore, she writes, the First Lady does not deserve feminist credit for choosing not to wear a headscarf, because "that choice really is not as big of a deal as people are making it out to be."

    TEHRAN – Iran condemned on Tuesday a deadly terror attack in England’s Manchester Arena, saying that terrorism, regardless of where it hits, originates from the same ideology. “We believe terrorist attacks in Iran’s Mirjaveh and England’s Manchester originate from the same ideology,” Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Tuesday, referring to 10 Iranian border guards who were killed late April in a terrorist ambush in Mirjaveh in Sistan and Baluchestan province, southeastern Iran. “All countries victimized by such extremist and terrorist, takfiri thoughts require to get united to confront such acts seriously, purposefully and sincerely.” A suicide bombing at a crowded...

    Mideast: President Trump's Mideast trip was derided by the media and opposition Democrats as simply a chance for him to skip town to avoid the ongoing "scandals" of his administration. As usual, they grossly underestimate this president, and completely misunderstand the importance of his historic trip. Trump's trip to Saudi Arabia and Israel has put the region on notice: The U.S. intends once again to pursue its interests and those of its allies in the region. The U.S. is ready to reward friends and punish enemies, and we will name names. This is a radical reversal of President Obama's policy...

    Speaking at a joint press conference with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Sunday, Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir commended President Donald Trump for an international trip designed to unite people of different faiths to address a threat faced by all of humanity around the globe regardless of their religion. “The President deserves a lot of credit for taking this step, making his first visit outside the U.S. to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam and land of the two holy Mosques, and then going to Israel and then going to the Vatican to deal...

    An analysis on Trump’s recently concluded trip to Saudi Arabia and the ongoing one to Israel. Trump effectively blessed Saudi Arabia as a pillar of moderate Islam as part of his “Muslim reset”. One Arab writer even hailed Saudi-US ties as one that “shaped the wider world” and although the wider world would undeniably agree with that reality, it would nevertheless consign such ties to the very negative end of the global affairs spectrum. The Israeli press celebrated Trump’s royal treatment in Riyadh and observed how the president and select members of his cabinet danced with swords in a ceremony...

    Appearing from Riyadh on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace this morning, Secretary Tillerson fielded a slightly offbeat question and responded with what (outside President Trump’s speech) may have been the quote of the day (transcript here). Wallace observed that Tillerson asked Tillerson about the traditional Arab sword dance in which he participated upon his arrival yesterday. “And I have to tell you,” Wallace commented, “you looked pretty good while you were doing it – frankly, more comfortable than the President or Commerce Secretary Ross. Had you been practicing, sir?” Tillerson responded: “Well, I hadn’t been practicing, Chris, but it...

    President Donald Trump broke the Internet once again during the inauguration of the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology Sunday in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. To signify the official start to the facility’s operations, Trump touched a brightly lit globe with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Egypt’s president Abdel Fatah al-Sisi. An awkward-looking Saudi TV screen grab quickly went viral, with the Internet quickly dubbing the object “the Trump orb.”

    Saudi Arabia rolled out the red carpet for US President Donald Trump on his inaugural overseas trip, but a moment involving a glowing orb had observers scratching their heads. Trump attended the opening of the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology on Sunday alongside his host, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, reported the state-run Saudi Press Agency. As the lights dimmed, the three leaders officially "activated" the new center by placing their hands on an illuminated globe as a four-minute introduction video displayed on large screens behind them, according to local media.

    Although President Trump’s speech before 50 Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia did not break new ground in terms of America’s Middle Eastern policy, it was highly significant for at least four reasons.First, Trump mentioned “terror” or “terrorism” 30 times. In stark contrast, during President Obama’s (in)famous speech Cairo speech in 2009, he did not mention terrorism at all. More importantly, President Trump spoke directly of “the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires.” To fight against this, Trump urged, “means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of...

    Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (CNN) — First lady Melania Trump's fashion choices got rave reviews in local Saudi Arabian press Sunday, despite forgoing the customary headscarf. Both the first lady and first daughter Ivanka Trump have been closely watched in Saudi Arabia for both style and substance. On Sunday, the first lady conducted a few solo events while her husband continued bilateral meetings with the Gulf Cooperation Council. She visited the American International School in Riyadh and an all-women General Electric service center, tweeting out images from both visits, calling the visits an "honor" and praising "international perspective and education to...

    It was refreshing to see President Trump speak to the leaders of the Muslim countries in Riyadh honestly and directly about the problems of Islamist terrorism. He told them in plain words that they have to drive out the terrorists from their mosques and countries. He reminded them that terrorists, such as ISIS, kill more Muslims than others. President Trump spoke bluntly. The Muslim countries must take care of the terrorists: “It is a choice between two futures -- and it is a choice America CANNOT make for you. A better future is only possible if your nations drive out...

    Let’s play “One of these things is not like the other one.” Compare, if you will, Barack Obama’s 2009 speech in Cairo to the Muslim world with Donald Trump’s speech today in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. There was some overlap: both indulged heartily in the usual political boilerplate and délicatesse: honored to be here, working together, Islam’s great contribution to culture, how splendid is the Middle East, terrorism is not coterminous with Islam, etc., etc. But that’s where the similarity ended.  Trump’s speech was a forthright, America First, speech, Obama’s an accommodationist’s dream. {snip} Trump’s speech—and, again, his entire performance—struck me...

I am honored to be received by such gracious hosts. I have always heard about the splendor of your country and the kindness of your citizens, but words do not do justice to the grandeur of this remarkable place and the incredible hospitality you have shown us from the moment we arrived.

  • Video: The Difference Between How The Saudis Greeted Obama vs Trump

    The Saudis treated President Trump like royalty, with red carpets, lavish meals and American flags flying everywhere. They repeatedly used the word “Historic” to describe his visit. The greeting was in stark contrast to Obama. Obama was seen as a Globalist-endorsing effeminate shill of the Shia Muslim-Brotherhood.
