Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, December 04, 2018

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican, said "I have zero question in my mind that the Crown Prince MBS ordered the killing, monitored the killing, knew exactly what was happening. Planned it in advanced. If he was in front of a jury he would be convicted in 30 minutes. Guilty," Corker said. Corker called the Trump administration's claim that there is no direct evidence of the crown prince's involvement "unacceptable." South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said, "It's not a smoking gun, it's a smoking saw."

The Saudis are going to pull a disappearing act on Corker and Graham.

And Trump will be fine with it.

Aren't the Saudis still blocking the release of the final pages from the 9/11 commission?

The golden rule, he who has the gold makes the rules.

Knew it.
F**k Trump.

No one's going to help us.
Only we can help us.

Will the GOP finally step up?

Oh hell no. They'll subpoena Comey before they leave, but they won't stand up to Trump.

Worthless.

Too bad the Democrats don't have the Senate, too.

Oh as if the brains of seasoned legislators and intelligence experts are smarter than the guts of a fraudulent reality tv celebrity.

Get 'em. This cannot go unpunished. The Congressional action on the human rights crisis in Yemen is the first step, and now is time to up the pressure.

What pressure, GONOLES? The Saudi Crown Prince is Trump's key (vis-à-vis the prince's budding bromance with son-in-law Jared Kushner) to the Saudi's enormous wealth that Trump is desperate to tap. Trump will fight like a cornered rat to keep that money tap open and flowing.

This is going to go unpunished.
Any punishment will be met with punishment at the gas pump.
Even though that would be good for the American fracking industry, it would be bad for Trump, so it won't happen.

What is Congress going to do, add Saudi Arabia to the Forbidden Muslim Country list?

Can you imagine the **** show coming our way if there is another Supreme Court vacancy any time soon???

Picture it.....

Republican Sen. Susan Collins on Friday said she would vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Mohammed bin Salman, ending months of speculation from the crucial swing senator.

"Mr. President, I will vote to confirm Mohammed bin Salman," Collins said at the very end of a nearly 45-minute-long speech on the Senate floor.

Minutes after Collins' speech concluded, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said that he, too, would vote for MBS.

"Based on all of the information I have available to me, including the recently completed FBI report, I have found Judge MBS to be a qualified jurist who will follow the Constitution and determine cases based on the legal findings before him," Manchin said in a statement.

"I had to deal with the facts I had in front of me," Manchin told reporters over shouts of "Shame!" from protesters in the hallway.

Collins revealed her decision Friday afternoon, hours after a key procedural vote in the confirmation process.

Collins voted to advance Mohammed bin Salman's nomination in the 51-49 vote, which saw divisions largely along party lines. The only exceptions were Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who voted no, and Manchin, who voted yes.

"I believe he is a good man," Murkowski said afterward. "It just may be that, in my view, he's not the right man for the court at this time."

What pressure, GONOLES?

After the Yemen action goes through, sanctions on family assets in the US. That would be rough on stocks for a few days - but people will realize that those - mostly tech stocks - are locked up, that too will pass.

Dream on, McDuff. Trump's not going to do a damn thing. The Saudis have him by the ------ because he wants and, more important, is DESPERATE for their money. The more leverage they have, the more they'll twist.

Then there's this: Putin and MBS seem to have something else going on between them. Didn't you notice all the glad-handing going on beteeen the two of them at G20 while Trump was sulking at the other end of the room?

I think there's some double-dealing going on and stupid Trump is the one with a knife in his back.

I didn't know the word ------ was censored.

I called some idiots "-----", and it got censored as well.

Nothing is going to happen to stop our complicity with the Saudis killing thousands of Yemeni peasants. Iran backs the Yemen rebels so we must be against them too. The murdering will continue and while it does anyone who supports Trump needs to STFU about the murder of Kashoggi, his death was a crime but so too are the hundreds of thousands of Yemenis who we help the Saudis murder every single day.

My favorite thing about NannyBot is the delay before cleanup.

It's like these jagged little steaming f-bombs remain on the ice until the Nanny Profani-Zamboni rolls out between periods to ---- smooth ---- over the ice.

And hand out cross-checking penalties.

You're going to have to elect a loyal american president first. Nothing will happen to saudi arabia as long as one of their treasonous puppets is in the white house..

Sorry but your President says otherwise.

He's too busy high fiving Putin and MBS to do anything.

LOL. You can bulldoze muslim brotherhood members as part of a military backed coup.

You get US fighter jets for it, at a discount.
