Seemingly the journalist Jamal Khashoggi walked into the Saudi embassy in Istanbul on October 2nd 2018 and never left, but suspecting that he might run into trouble in there while attempting to get paperwork he set his iwatch to record audio and it subsequently (reportedly by the Turkish) recorded his being taken against his will, tortured, questioned and murdered ... and the watch later transmitted that audio data to his partners computer via social media and this is a fact according to them. When his murderers realized that his watch could do that they attempted to interfere with the program but failed and now the cat is out of the bag. Seemingly the TRUTH of it is somewhere in the middle. He did indeed walk in, he was set upon and murdered with knives and the episode was recorded, although nobody has yet made the recording public.
Now that orange-skinned cretin is defending the murdering scum who killed Khashoggi and those who ordered the murder for political reasons because of what it would mean ECONOMICALLY. Can you believe that? A man is dead, MURDERED simply because he was critical of the Saudi leadership and yet the president of the United States is buddying up with the regime that has connections to the murder. But then, Chump is the sort of creep who has always given me the impression that he would happily sell his own mother down the river if it suited his purposes so this does not surprise me. Now Chump (a week late as usual) has ordered that a copy of the audio recording be forwarded to the White House (anyone can fake an audio recording as it does not require specific details like faces for example). You know what's going to happen after that? NOTHNG WHATSOEVER because to challenge the Saudi's would be economic suicide and business is more important than a man's life. Saudi Arabia denies any responsibility and Chump has denied covering for them.
NEWSFLASH: According to the Arabic media Khashoggi is DEAD. According to the Saudi's Khashoggi walked into the embassy and was killed "in a fist fight" inside their Embassy. Seriously? Reportedly he walked in and was immediately set upon by assassins who knifed him to death (and that at least was predictable given their mentality and fanaticism). But the fact that the Saudi's have added he's dead (and their media didn't make mention of assassins or why a fight of any description took place inside their embassy) is all the more strange given that its taken them until October 19th to admit this, and it says a lot for how much pressure is being applied to them. They were of course playing for time and failed to convince the world to mind its own business. They simply could not get away with denying it this time but it won't stop them doing it again. Be interesting if they can produce the body, but of course they cannot. Islamic burial rites state that the dead must be buried as quickly as possible, assuming his corpse was buried at all. In the meantime the Turkish intelligence services claim to have video of Khashoggi being murdered, possibly dissected and his body being taken away but have yet to provide any proof to back up their claims.
Also on the Chump scene, he now believes apparently that climate change isn't a load of horseshit (''a hoax'') but now believes that people who press for scientific evidence of climate change to be engaged in some kind of political agenda! Surely Chump is the most uninformed man on the planet. He still cannot accept that the human industrial revolution is directly responsible for the destruction of the ozone layer, the pollution in the ciities and plastic in the oceans. WHAT? Is this cretin so stupid as to assume somebody took all the nice clean air that used to exist in pre-industrial revolutionary times and replaced it with SMOG so thick in London for example that in the fifties it was impossible to see more than four feet in front of you in broad daylight and which even today has left permanent scarring on many buildings.
That smog vanished in London when coal was replaced by oil as a means to an end. I could also argue the same of cities all over the world with India being a classic example, many places in China too - but in the West we have Los Angeles which has so much smog (this time from hydro-carbons) that the air is physically poisonous and should not be breathed in. Why is anyone even remotely interested in anything this man has to say or think? He isn't a scientist, he has no scientific background. In plain language he is talking CRAP and yet because he happens to be (often amusingly referred to as) the most powerful man in the world (what power, exactly, really?) people listen to him and somehow this makes his commentaries valid. The world's leading scientists have agreed that MANKIND is the cause of this present era of temperature rises and atmospheric, soil and water corruption (like, durrrrr).
