This act is already being seized upon by various players on all sides as a sign that we need to sever ties with either SA, Israel, or both.
Even without an explicit change in policy, the intended shift in public perception of our alliances is already in progress.
So my question is, if we sever, or even impede our relationship with Saudi Arabia over this, do the terrorists win?
Did this Saudi Arabian service member intend for his act to serve as a wedge between his own country and ours?
Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, along with all his Republican colleagues, demanded that Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., schedule a "minority day of hearings" to afford their party the opportunity to call their own witnesses to testify in President Trump's impeachment inquiry, according to a letter sent to the chairman's office Thursday.
No outrage here. We have President Trump and I have more chance of being the first person on Mars than this bill has of passing.
It's more a case of SSDD and as you say signaling priorities to their base and keeping their donor checkbooks open.
It's been nearly 18 years since I attended 'A' school at NAS Pensacola. There were loads of other countries' uniforms walking around even then.
It was right after 9/11 at the time. I remember a lot of people saying that if we change our way of life, or sacrifice our freedoms, "the terrorists win".
So yesterday a person from SA explicitly stated that he was attacking the US because of our support for Israel (good luck finding that tweet now). But what did he <i>really</i> want?
Stunning News in Canada - Economy Loses 71,200 Jobs, Unemployment Jumps to 5.9%... https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/12/06/stunning-news-in-canada-economy-loses-71200-jobs-unemployment-jumps-to-5-9/ via @thelastrefuge2
Indeed it is getting better, it will get much, much better, and it will remain in good hands for a generation.
A prerequisite to any serious effort to right this ship.
Yet, amazingly, folks can't figure it out.
It is enough to jump for joy.
Two years ago, we could have expected the 9th to uphold the lower courts injunctions. As the Bench has slowly evolved with Trump's appointments, we're finally seeing realistic interpretations coming out of this Court. I will continue to look forward to each new addition Trump makes over the next four years.
Of course they will. It has been the law (and, surprisingly, a reasonable one) for ever.
Mountain Dew Camacho's administration's unwillingness to enforce the law did not change the law.
Important decision from the 9th yesterday in regards to immigration.
The court has granted a stay of two preliminary injunctions that were granted by two district courts.
"DHS has shown a strong likelihood of success on the merits because the Final Rule was neither contrary to law nor arbitrary and capricious; DHS will suffer irreparable harm because the preliminary injunctions will force it to grant status to those not legally entitled to it"
I had an import/export co. In 1980. Try and get something into Port without "connections".
Then I run a cargo airline in JFK. Ha!
You couldn't get your PA lease approved unless you "knew people".
People are beyond ignorant and stupid.
Every New Yorker over 50 knows this damn well.
A weeks long process involving the school in the US and background check by the US consulate in the student's home country.
That said, this asswipe was not your run of the mill "foreign student".
It is impossible to understand what happens if you do not first understand who the actors are.
Alshamrani was not a "foreign student" getting a BS at, say, UCLA.
He was a military officer receiving training in a USAF base.
Many more failed in the US and KSA than a consulate.
Actually, more inuendo than exposé.
The only thing the article actially reveals is Biden use of the mob to win his election in 72.
Trump lived in New York. He met mobster.
So did I and anyone who lived in NY at the time. The mob run the ports, airports, cement, garbage and transportation.
I've read it. It's a book worth reading. Another reminder that things that should make sense often don't at the time. Eventually, they do.
I genuinely treasure mine.
I've had signed books in the past but never from someone that I respected so much.
This indeed would be a wonderful Christmas gift
I love these insights Don Saul. Forgive my conflation. I am definitely projecting my own epiphany about the competence of DJT. Started with @ThomasWic pointing to the 1984 N.Y. Times article...the substantial contribution provided by each of you helped ME realize how amazingly accomplished DJT was across so many cutthroat sectors. The Sun Tzuisms...it all really helped to clarify the level of competence, scope of battle, and has been so reassuring
@darulharb If he does, this will happen...
Trump: *tweets video*
Media: For some reason, President Trump tweeted out this doctored video!?#%!!
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
