Skip to comments.Election 2018 Unplugged: When It Comes To "Foreign Influence" Will China Or Saudi Arabia Win?
Posted on 11/02/2018 1:47:10 PM PDT by Nextrush
You've heard the "stuff" dished out about foreign influence on our elections....Russia, Russia, Russia.
But Vice-President Mike Pence had a much broader list than that when he spoke recently citing Russia, China and Iran, along with "other nations".
And he's dead on right.
There's been a lot of griping from people who do business and make bucks dealing with China over the tariffs President Trump imposed to force fairer trade.
I heard this kind of *itching from a trade association of adult beverage manufacturers in Kentucky when I listened to the radio down there during my summer vacation.
But there was a nation or two VP Pence left out because well, they are close to Trump and the GOP.
None other than the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, reputed to spend 290 million dollars on lobbying here in the USA with President Trump visiting last year. doing the "sword dance" and signing off on a 110 billion dollar arms deal.
In the aftermath of a Jamal Khashoggi murder, Trump said the deal is worth half-a-million jobs, then later on another occasion one million jobs was the figure he gave.
Khashoggi was said to be planning disclosure of chemical weapons use by the Saudis in the Yemen war with the US now calling for a cease fire.
And then the war Saudi Arabia launched in Syria seven years ago with head chopping Al-Qaeda bringing atrocities to the battlefield and the ISIS forces that morphed out of them raping and pillaging Syria and Iraq.
And speaking of rape, what about all those migrants the Saudi backed war drove into Europe.
And Israel has always lobbied our politicians and shares a common anti-Iran agenda with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has come to Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman's defense in the aftermath of the Khashoggi killing.
And his government was right in there defending the POTUS from attack following the synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh last weekend.
Yes. foreign influence is on the ballot this Tuesday and depending on whether the Democrats or the Republicans win will tell us who's foreign influence has the upper hand.

The Russians, in particular, ganged up with Hitler to start WWII, only to have this bite them on the ass when Hitler kicked off Operation Barbarossa. They were also responsible for killing 100K Americans during the Korean and Vietnam Wars, given that without their ideological, financial and material backing, as well as actual Russian pilots and warplanes, neither of these wars would have ballooned into large scale conflicts they actually did.
The Saudi stuff is pure BS drummed up by a press corps that hates Trump for being pro-American. Given that the Russians are indirectly responsible for probably 600K American deaths in the 20th century, the wariness is justified. Iran was Hezbollah’s sponsor in the Beirut truck bombing that killed 200 Marine peacekeepers in Lebanon. That’s not even counting Iran holding the entire US embassy hostage for over a year, and the assorted killings of various Americans like the torture and murder of the CIA station chief in Lebanon. I hope we get to repay the mullahs 1000-fold in the years ahead.
Mexico and Mexicans could well be deciding our future, thanks to Bush League Republicans.
More Saudi bashing over Kashoggi.
The massive depth and breadth of it in the west appears to me to reflect the extent of Muslim Brotherhood subversion in the west.
