Chinese nationalists have rallied in central Hong Kong in support of besieged police officers and accused the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of whipping up anti-Government sentiment in the former British colony.
Hundreds of activists waving flags gathered at Hong Kong’s police headquarters late on Tuesday in a demonstration to counter the democracy movement that has taken hold in the Chinese territory.
Many of the pro-Beijing supporters who gathered in support of Hong
Kong’s Government and police told the ABC they believed US intelligence
agencies were largely responsible for the city’s recent unrest.
“Americans give Hong Kong, some of the people here, a lot of support — like the CIA,” says Jimmy Wong, a Hong Kong-born man who attended the rally.
A similar view was expressed by Angelo Giuliano, a European citizen who has lived on the Chinese mainland for 25 years, but regularly visits Hong Kong.
Some of the nationalists who attended the rally carried slogans
depicting pro-democracy protestors as “cockroaches”, while urging Hong
Kong’s embattled leader Carrie Lam to take a harder line against them.
“I hope she can change the law or something like that to stop people doing any more damage on the streets,” Mr Wong said.
On Tuesday, Beijing’s official news agency Xinhua reported that Chinese President Xi Jinping had demanded “unswerving efforts” to end the violence in the Hong Kong and punish those responsible “to safeguard the well-being of the general public.” Continue reading: West’s Hong Kong color revolution
CIA — 71 Years of Torture, Narco Trade & Regime Change
Joshua Adam Schulte, a former CIA employee accused of leaking classified material to WikiLeaks, sought to mount a new defense Tuesday months beyond the deadline to do so.
Edward S. Zas, a public defender for Mr. Schulte,
asked a federal court judge to accept a tardy pretrial motion
challenging the constitutionality of federal espionage and larceny
statutes under which his client has been charged.
Mr. Schulte, 31, has been jailed for nearly two years while waiting to stand trial in connection with multiple counts related to allegedly leaking top-secret CIA material later published online by the WikiLeaks website. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges, and his trial is currently set to start in early 2020 following a series of developments and delays.
In a four-page sworn declaration, Mr. Zas said that Mr. Schulte’s
legal team did not learn they could seek to have the charges dropped as
unconstitutional until several months after a July deadline to submit
pretrial motions had passed. He filed it in Manhattan federal court
along with a memorandum making his case for dismissal.
“This was not a tactical, strategic or reasoned decision,” said Mr. Zas. “Counsel simply and inexcusably overlooked that the constitutionality of these statutes is open to serious question and vigorously debated by courts, journalists and commentators. Counsel also overlooked that neither the Supreme Court nor the Second Circuit has definitively resolved whether these statutes are unconstitutionally overbroad or vague in their current form, particularly as applied to news organizations and their sources.”
Mr. Zas said that the defense team did not realize that a “viable
motion to dismiss under the Constitution” was possible until around Oct.
22. He did not immediately return a message requesting further details.
The tardy pretrial motions seeks dismissal of four counts brought under the U.S. Espionage Act and one count brought under the larceny statute, both stemming from Mr. Schulte allegedly leaking a collection of CIA hacking tools that were publishing by WikiLeaks beginning in March 2017. He would face a maximum sentence of 50 years imprisonment if found guilty of all five counts, Mr. Zas noted, arguing it would be be “fundamentally unfair” to penalize Mr. Schulte for his own “unreasonable failure” to file the motion to dismiss on time.
“Scholars, journalists, and judges have long feared that the
Espionage Act, 18 U.S.C.§ 793, and the federal larceny statute, 18
U.S.C. § 641, are so vaguely worded—and have been construed so
broadly—that the government could use them to prosecute news
organizations, and their confidential sources, for obtaining and
revealing truthful and important information about government activity
to the public,” Mr. Zas wrote in the memo. “In this case, those fears
have been realized.”
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan declined to comment.
Passed during World War I, the Espionage Act has been used several times this century by prosecutors to bring criminal charges related to leaking classified material, including recently in the federal case pending against Julian Assange, the Australian-born editor and founder of WikiLeaks. He was indicted in May on 17 counts of violating the Espionage Act for soliciting and publishing classified U.S. military and diplomatic documents nearly a decade earlier, marking the first time in history the Justice Department has ever prosecuted a publisher under the statute.
Mr. Assange, 47, has been jailed in London since April fighting
extradition to the U.S. He too faces decades behind bars if found
Several candidates seeking the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 have condemned his prosecution under the Espionage Act or called for the charges to be dropped.

heard as I’m sure you have also heard your whole life women telling you
that size doesn’t matter but I’m here to call bullshit. And I can prove
it. Below I will post two photos of naked women. One photo will be a
total yawn fest while the other photo will have your eyes bugging out
and your chin drop to the floor, okay? NSFW dip shit.
I’ll tell a woman straight to her face, those little bitty titties won’t even get me hard how can you ever hope to get me off? Might as well put your clothes back on honey because you’re not getting any of this big stick. Like fishing and you catch a small fish, I just throw it back. Size does matter. A girl with mosquito bite sized tits can’t even get me hard.
it doesn’t end there. Plenty of women with big tits have big guts that
their tits roll into and you have to bend over to their knees to find
their nipples. That’s just gross and again I’m not interested. Unlike my
fellow man I actually have standards. I don’t fuck drunk bitches that
are barfing in their own hair or women when their passed out because I’m
going to make you sweat and holler like a pig and how could you do that
if you’re passed out?
Size matters not just for tits
but for vaginas as well. Some of these women have been with so many
wannabe fake ass bitches that having sex with them is like throwing a
hotdog down a hallway. They’ve turned their vaginas into a two car
garage, where only a gang bang can satisfy them. How do I possibly know
all of this? Why do you think your guy keeps trying to fuck you in the
ass, bitch? Because your kitty is worn the fuck out. I have to strap a
two by four to my ass to keep from falling into your Gap. If your kitty
can swallow my whole fist and arm, thanks but no thanks, that would be
just like pounding the Grand Canyon.
Most men, well every so-called man I’ve ever met will fuck anything (even a Fifi). Where I’m living now they have a saying, “Fontana, CA. is where the men are men and the sheep are scared”. God bless America, ya’ll. Christians are so gross they even fuck their own pets. I’m on a whole other level. Other boy men give their shit away because that’s all that it’s worth, nothing. I charge a bitch. Oh yes, I do. Laugh all that you want to but I don’t ply women with drugs and alcohol to get into their panties, they ply me and I don’t even drink. Believe whatever you want to because it won’t affect me for one second, I don’t know you, pry never will and really don’t want to. So why would I lie to you when I have nothing to gain? Well?
How is my paying for three websites out of my own pocket, to teach you what I already know, getting one over on you? Well? You thought that I’d let you off the hook? I’ve been fucking your wife my whole life. And she’s a total freak, don’t believe me? I’ve got video, Jack. Believe whatever you want, it won’t bother me for one second. There’s a reason that you have to pay for sex either with your girlfriend, wife or some hooker and women pay me and that’s because you’re a two pump chump and so it doesn’t really matter what size your cock is because you can’t go the extra mile like I do. If you bust a nut as soon as you put it in then what does it matter what size it is? It could be a mile long and you’d still not be able to make your girl scream and holler. Get a clue Bozo.
I use to run my own stable not a concentration camp as women came and went as they pleased. But while they could come and go I found this was my life not just something I was doing for a buck or two. But for them it was a means and not an ends, they had kids and were looking for a daddy not just some fun. And while the money and the perks were beyond anything you could ever possibly imagine it was fast money and fast pussy meaning here today and gone tomorrow. I was looking for the kind of wealth that you could stack and turn into power. Because money in and of itself really has no value (it’s just paper) so the trick is to hold onto what you make and use it to build power. He who has the gold makes the rules and when you need a loan you put on your Sunday best and pray that the banker is in a good mood. But it’s only because the bank has stacks of cash that they hold that power over you. And the homeless, they have no power at all, now do they?
Craigslist and Backpage were reporting profits in the millions of dollars just from escort ads. But Craigslist did it right. Unlike Backpage when the government got too close Craigslist took their profits and laughed all the way to the bank by simply removing the escort section from their website. Backpage couldn’t do this because they failed to diversify. While most ads on Craigslist are free they do charge for one category in two markets, Los Angeles and New York and Craigslist makes a million dollars a year off of that one section alone. Backpage on the other hand attempted to find loopholes in the governments laws even as the government wrote new laws targeting just Backpage because no one used Backpage for anything other then escorts.
I could easily read the writing on the wall that the government was about to seize Backpage and put them out of business. I wrote an article on how to avoid prostitution stings that was a huge success but only in that a lot of people read it, it didn’t make me any money. This led me to put two and two together and I created a website where every person posting would be verified and there would be no need to avoid police prostitution stings because the police would not be able to post their decoys because my website would verify everyone who posted. But people would ask about the legality of what I was doing and I would tell them the story of Craigslist and Backpage and how a real criminal only commits crimes, real criminals are not into getting caught regardless what you may have heard, that’s for wannabe criminals, drug addicts and suckers. Sure, don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time because no one likes a snitch so you better take it to the grave, if ya’ know what’s good for ya’.
And sure as shit the FBI moved in and took Backpage offline. My new website became an over night smash receiving more hits then I could ever imagine. But I had made two crucial mistakes that would force me to take my website offline and rebuild it. By the time I got my website back up and running I had over 60 other competitors all going after the same traffic and the same dollars I was going after. But then the government passed a new law targeting my business called FOSTA/SESTA that would require all websites hosting such ads to verify that the poster was not underage or being trafficked. Holy shit I nearly crapped myself, the stars had aligned in my favor and my government was helping me, again, because that is exactly what my website does already- verify every post.
The big boys like Craigslist, couldn’t verify everyone trying to post on their websites and I watched as a lot of my competition removed escorts and anything related to adult services from their sites. Also my other competitors were claiming that hosting their websites offshore or overseas would make them immune to U.S. laws but it didn’t work that way for the Canadian pharmacies selling Norcos though did it? Then the FBI announced that they were going to shut down Eros, BudyRubs and EscortMonkey and that the webmaster was on the run overseas. And the police started their prostitution stings against several of my other competitors even arresting the owner of the Patriots football team during the Super bowl.
You might think that by now I’m rolling in the dough, right? Nope, traffic is so slow that I opened up most parts of my website (unlike most, I was charging clients for access to my website instead of charging providers for ads) that I had been charging for and turned it into a remake of TER (the Erotic Review) on steroids. If you’re looking for a date don’t date decoy police officers, know that the ad you’re looking at is a real person and not something I created out of thin air to entice you like Tinder and Ashley Madison were caught doing, creating fake profiles. Get the real deal that you can only get at one place, do not accept fakes or frauds, why get caught up and go to jail when all that you really want is to have a good time?
All providers listed are over 21 years old at the time of posting and have been verified as working independently at FBSMReviews.org No cops, no fakes, no undercover decoys, no scammers, no bait-and-switch, no out-of-date photos, every post and every review is verified 100 percent authentic I guarantee it, enjoy!

Tekashi 6ix9ine better hope that a judge agrees that he offered
invaluable testimony in last month’s high-profile trial of Nine Trey
Gangsta Bloods gang members and lets him leave prison sooner rather than
That’s because the flamboyant rapper, who was born Daniel Hernandez,
has cut a record deal worth more than $10 million with 10K Projects, his
former label, TMZ reported.
Once he is released from prison, he’ll earn the money by putting out
two albums, one in English and one in Spanish, sources told TMZ.
So for Tekashi, crime, and being a “snitch” about the crime, may pay — big time.
The Brooklyn-born music phenomenon will be sentenced Dec. 18 for weapons, drugs and other crimes that originally carried a mandatory term of 47 years in prison.
But immediately after Tekashi was arrested and indicted in November
2018, he agreed to break an unspoken code of silence among gang members
and cooperate with federal prosecutors in their sweeping racketeering
case against the violent Nine Trey crew. That cooperation now means a
judge could agree to sentence the rapper to time served and let him
leave federal custody.
Last month, Tekashi, 23, was the star witness in the trial of two
men, Anthony Ellison and Aljermiah Mack, who were said to be prominent
members of the Nine Trey gang.
Tekashi offered detailed testimony about the inner workings of the
gang. He said he joined the gang in 2017, just as his platinum-selling
career was taking off, to give his music street credibility with hip-hop
Tekashi described how members of the gang, which started several
decades ago on Rikers Island, N.Y., used intimidation and violence to
coerce enemies and commit crimes.
His testimony led to a jury convicting Ellison and Mack, marking an important victory for prosecutors who already had secured guilty pleas from Tekashi and other members. Ellison and Mack were found guilty of racketeering conspiracy; Ellison also was found guilty of kidnapping Tekashi in July 2018.
The verdicts also were seen as a vindication of sorts for Tekashi, who was publicly denounced as “a snitch” by Snoop Dogg, The Game, 50 Cent and a long list of other rappers. While his testimony may allow him to soon return to his career, his co-defendants Mack and Ellison face potential life sentences.
From the confines of federal lockup, Tekashi reportedly has been aware what other rappers were saying about him and apparently hasn’t been concerned, sources told TMZ for a report last week.
In fact, Tekashi has reportedly been telling associates he doesn’t care what the other rappers think about him; he is dismissing them as “haters” and as “has-beens” who are jealous, presumably of his fame and his potential to be more popular than ever. It looks as if his label agrees.
If Tekashi wants to get back to making music, it’s also safe to assume that he wants to get back on Instagram so he can start trolling his critics and picking feuds with the “haters.”
Perhaps more than “Gummo,” “Gotti,” “Fefe” and his other music, Tekashi is known for trolling his critics, for feuding with rappers like Trippie Redd and Casanova and for keeping everyone buzzing about his rainbow hair and his almost daily drama.
Writers and music industry experts, trying to explain his sudden and confounding rise to rap superstardom, have described him as the “troll prince of hip-hop” and the “Donald Trump of music.”
Tekashi also reportedly is unconcerned enough about being the target of gang retaliation that he has rejected the option of disappearing forever into a federal witness protection program, TMZ reported last week.

In these times of hate and greed, we need more than empty words and promises. We need more than time wasters. In these times of hate and greed, we need a remedy to get us through the pain.
U.S. was the largest creditor in the world. Now the debt is in the
trillions of dollars. Trillions of dollars transferred from the worlds
richest and most powerful country. This is a form of destructive
economic management at a level of graft and corruption that has NO
parallel. There’s nothing comparable to that in history.
Politicians and businesses routinely use five techniques to get us to do what they want. Most of us get fooled or conned on a regular basis. Because the process of being fooled takes place inside our minds, it’s up to us to realize when we’re being taken.

The U.S. policy (includes tax policy, financial deregulation, trade
policy, anti-labor policy, and much more.) for the past 35 years has
been aggressively dedicated to shifting income share away from the poor
and middle class and into the pockets of the already rich.
During an era in which the rich were getting richer anyway, we
deliberately set out to reduce their tax burdens so that they could
become even richer.

Instead of putting our foot back on the neck of finance, we’re talking
about slashing social programs. Rather than dramatically increasing
taxes on the super-rich through a wealth tax, we’re debating how to
slash Social Security and Medicare benefits.
We live in a time when elected politicians ignore the needs of their
constituents; where the judiciary and police institutions will not
uphold the rights of citizens; where the media are afraid to report the
truth; where lawlessness abounds and ordinary people are left
unprotected and defenseless against the rapacity of a few. The answer to
our dilemma is for people of courage to actively help each other. Only
if we unite can we succeed. That is the only way.
Congress and the Senate need to be held to one term. The founding

Knowing that they are out numbered and out gunned they devised a plan to
keep us divided and conquered always fighting among ourselves over
trifling wedge issues. The real problem is not white and black or legal against illegals, woman

laugh, the super rich created the national debt with bailouts, QE, and
the military industrial complex with no bid contracts, the poor didn’t
profit from the wars but the rich do.
Americans spend ten times more on defense than any other country on the planet. American tax payers have been conned out of 250 million dollars a day since 9/11 for this phony war on terror. And with the best equipped and best trained military in the world, we, for some reason, can not beat a bunch of goat herders, who don’t have an air force, a navy or even military budget. That’s war profiteering at it’s most worse.
And so far, the US military’s only accomplishment has been to lower the price of street heroin. Matter of a fact, the prices have never been lower and the quality has never been higher.

with fewer services and higher taxes, that’s who.
Think about that for a second, profitable corporations get $170b in handouts each year from our taxes.

bigotry that’s how.

America’s crimes against humanity, they will not listen or “wake up”

you, attack the messenger and so on. Don’t believe me though just ask
anyone dumb enough to exercise their right to free speech and see how
fast they were blacklisted and shadow banned so that they could never work again or worse.

exaggeration, but it isn’t. Over the past couple of decades, the
Internet has completely changed the way that we all communicate with one
another. At one time, all forms of mass communication were tightly
controlled by the elite, but the Internet suddenly allowed us to
communicate with one another on a massive scale without having to go
through their gatekeepers. This radically altered the landscape, and at
first the elite were unsure of how to respond to this growing threat.

Internet was invented, and so they have decided to use it for their own
insidious purposes instead.
Today, the Internet has become the centerpiece of their “Big Brother
surveillance grid”, and they are gathering information on all of us on a
scale that has never been seen before in all of human history.
If you use the Internet, the technocratic elite know virtually everything about you. And as we have seen so frequently in recent months, they also have the power to “deplatform” those that they do not like.
The information that the elite have about all of us will continue to grow, as will their desire to punish those that think or act “offensively”. But in the process of creating a “utopia”, they will actually be creating an authoritarian nightmare.
course it was never going to stop there. Over the past couple of years
we have started to watch the elite use all of this information to punish
those that are doing or saying things that they do not like.
What we write here for the intelligentsia doesn’t really mean anything to anyone. The streets aren’t going to notice what we write or don’t write on the internet. The only people reading some free blog aren’t going to change anything or rise up with me against their corporate masters. For you the reader this is just entertainment but for me this is my life and I don’t have the time to waste on lames and snitches and end up like Edward Snowden or Julian Assange. That’s real talk.
I’ve got ninety nine problems but my girl ain’t one. I’m talking about people who want to cut me up with a bone saw so they have to bury me in a closed casket. But you can’t understand me. You live in a vanilla white world where the cops are your friends and the politicians who screw you will also get your votes and your monetary contributions. Because you’re a special kind of stupid if you really believe that the very system which threw us under a bus will now allow us to vote ourselves out of the very mess which they created.
How it is we have so much information, but know so little?
The US is no longer a
democracy. It has been turned into a lobbyist’s paradise in which the
lobbyists are no longer confined to the lobby but have installed
themselves in congressional offices and are drafting prodigious
quantities of legislation to suit the private interests of corporations
Laissez-faire capitalism is also very much dead, supplanted by crony
capitalism nurtured by a thorough melding of Washington and Wall Street
elites. Private enterprise is no longer free but concentrated in a
handful of giant corporations while about a third of the employed
population in the US works in the public sector. The US Department of
Defense is the largest single employer in the country as well as in the
America has done quite well in militarizing its local
police departments, so that when the time comes it will be ready to go
to war… against itself.
We have entered, at the end of the industrial age, a phase of growth where we must incarcerate an ever-expanding number of people to sustain the growth of all the companies profiting from law enforcement, crime, imprisonment and war. And the overheated stock market must grow or collapse. The reason this nation spends five dollars on prisons for every one dollar on higher education – even after seven straight years of falling crime rates – is because there is more profit in it in the current economic model.
Hell, we have turned police departments into profit making entities through asset forfeiture. This is insane! This economic model is patently no more sustainable than a snake eating its own tail can be considered nourishment.
New enforcement programs involving HUD and the Department of Justice- along with their corresponding butchery of the Constitution – show an emerging police state already. The conduct of Congress and the White House and the CIA further demonstrate the arrogance, and the ever-increasing sloppiness of a system out of control.
The veneer, the illusion that we live under the rule of law cracks before our eyes, grows thinner and ever more difficult to sell with each passing minute.
As rich countries, strip poorer countries of their natural resources in
an attempt to re-stabilize their own, the people of poor countries
become increasingly desperate. This deteriorating situation, besides
pressuring rich countries to allow increased immigration, further
exacerbates already stretched political tensions and threatens global
political and economic security.
The rich have
forced us into debt while shipping our jobs overseas. Now we have an
emerging police state and a federal government that is completely
out-of-control. They already own our politicians and our political system.
The beauty of our system is that it isolates everybody. Each person is
sitting alone in front of the tube, you know. It’s very hard to have
ideas or thoughts under those circumstances. You can’t fight the world
Responsibility I believe accrues through privilege. People like you
and me have an unbelievable amount of privilege and therefore we have a
huge amount of responsibility. We live in free societies where we are
not afraid of the police; we have extraordinary wealth available to us
by global standards. If you have those things, then you have the kind of
responsibility that a person does not have if he or she is slaving
seventy hours a week to put food on the table; a responsibility at the
very least to inform yourself about power. Beyond that, it is a question
of whether you believe in moral certainties or not.
There are two problems for our species’ survival – nuclear war and
environmental catastrophe – and we’re hurtling towards them. Knowingly.
Our only real hope for democracy is that we get the money out of
politics entirely and establish a system of publicly funded elections.
Look folks, in our system, we the people are suppose to send these
jokers to Washington to fix something and then they are suppose to
return to their normal professions. Our founding fathers never
envisioned, meant or anticipated for “career politicians” who suck off
the public treasury and enrich themselves with stock purchases on
industries they are writing laws for.
When the Supreme court granted
citizenship to corporations it should have been obvious that we the
people lost one branch of government to corruption. With the legal
authority granted by the Supreme court to corporations to buy our
political process the foxes were in the hen house and we lost another
branch of government to corruption.
Voting has led to the
continuation of one corrupt party or the other.
It is self-indulgence to refuse to support a party that is genuinely
guilty of corruption and incompetence, but it is doing one’s duty to
lend grudging support to that party four years later despite the fact
that this party has not meaningfully changed in the meantime? This
doesn’t make sense. What better time is there for withholding political
support from a party than in the wake of its many failures? A person
might be demonstrating partisan loyalty by backing a party under those
circumstances, but he wouldn’t be performing a “duty.” If anything, he
might even be shirking his civic duty by endorsing political leadership
that he knows to be unfit for the sake of the advantage of his “side.”
Citizens certainly have duties and obligations, but reliably supporting a
party no matter how it performs in office isn’t one of them.
Many of the failures came about partly because most
conservatives and progressives fell in line, deferred to party leaders, and did their
“duty” to their party by continuing to support it even when it was
leading them and the country towards disaster. It doesn’t bode well for
the future if conservatives and progressives are ready to fall back into that same
Many people want to blame one administration or another because that’s easy. It isn’t true, it’s not any one administration, the system isn’t broke, it’s rigged.

In 1964, Random House published the bestselling The Invisible Government, by journalists David Wise and Thomas Ross (here’s the CIA’s declassified review of the book, which takes exception to its thesis). More recently, Michael Glennon’s National Security and Double Government updated the argument. Peter Dale Scott was the first, as far as I know, to use the phrase “parapolitics”
and “deep politics” to discuss what is now described as the deep state,
and he’s the author of numerous books on the dense connections between
illegal drugs, covert action, and finance. I’ve always been a bit
agnostic about Scott’s work, overwhelmed by the sheer detail, but then I
remember that Iran-Contra really did happen. As Michael Parenti likes
to point out, conspiracies do in fact exist, both in legal theory and in
politics: Watergate, Iran-Contra, the savings and loan scandal of the
1980s/90s, “described by the Justice Department as ‘a thousand conspiracies of fraud, theft,
and bribery,’ the greatest financial crime in history” (that we know
WikiLeaks diplomatic cables that Julian Assange and his organization have just released make riveting reading and describe how what is now Islamist terrorism and ISIS originally began through a project between the government of Saudi Arabia and the CIA, when they created a Mujahideen force in order to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan as the United States then perceived the Soviet Union to be their biggest threat at the time.
Assange is not alone in his claims either. According to a poll by the
Express, the overwhelming majority of people understand that US foreign
policy created ISIS.
And Osama bin Laden? He was the son of an extremely wealthy Saudi Arabian businessman and elected to leave Saudi Arabia for the sole purpose of going to Pakistan in order to help support and further the cause of the Mujahideen fighters. Zbigniew Brzezinski, a National Security Advisor to Jimmy Carter, visited Afghanistan in 1979, met with Bin Laden and told these fighters that their cause was right and just and that God was on their side.
The inhumane treatment of Muslims living under the imposed rule of the DAESH (ISIS/ISIL) is like holding a mirror to life inside “Wahhabi Arabia“, where every horrific report of prisoner abuse and torture; acts of oppression and violence against women and children; targeted destruction of historic and holy structures; enforced religious obedience; and public executions by beheading or stoning is already the daily norm inside the Islamic Empire of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
A promise by the British was given to the inhabitants of the Hijaz that they would have an Islamic, multi-national government, with a structure that would be inclusive to all Muslim factions. However, this “promise of democracy” was broken by Ibn once he was handed absolute power. He immediately made Saudi Arabia into a regime ruled by himself solely, as a king. His religious beliefs and oppressive laws were (and still are) enforced by his radicalized family members and loyal Wahhabi warriors.
Despite overwhelming evidence of their international crimes, the United Nations and American leaders still bow to Al-Saud family members, and unbelievable but true, recently rewarded Saudi Arabia with a seat on the UN Human Rights Council.
Saudi Arabia is involved in the purchase of Yazidi sex slaves, there are hundreds of Yazidi girls living as slaves in Saudi Arabia. This heinous act needs to be investigated as a crime against humanity, but with Saudi Arabia’s overreaching influence in the UN, that will never happen.
Faisal bin Hassan Trad, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador at the UN in Geneva, has been elected as chair of a panel of independent experts on the UN Human Rights Council.
Saudi royals are preying on hapless Syrian refugee women and small girls in Jordanian Refugee camps made for Syrian refugees who have fled their country. The men enter these camps in the guise of donors, and kidnap young girls by taking advantage of darkness of night. It is reported that when a woman resisted, they burnt her camp. The Saudi rich and royalshave transformed these camps into mass rape centers of helpless and unprotected Syrian women and children.
There are several reports, including interviews with victims, that wealthy Saudis are taking advantage of women and their children who are left destitute and defenseless after their husbands were killed, or recruited to fight in the war. The Saudi Sheikhs are preying on impoverished, homeless families, and purchasing the children – with an intention of sexually abusing the girls, then discarding the damaged children when they tire of them, and they then simply purchase another child from a desperate mother – who will choose to sacrifice one child for the survival of the other children.
Kilian Kleinschmidt, the head of the UN-run Zaatari camp in northern Jordan, told IBTimes UK that unscrupulous individuals took advantage of the lawlessness plaguing the camp soon after it was set up in 2012, to prey on vulnerable families.
The risk of sexual violence was so great that Syrian girls and women felt unsafe using the toilets and communal kitchens. In some instances they refused to leave the tents they shared with their families, according to a 2013 Unicef report.
A daily life of hardship and struggle is routine also for the more than 700,000 Syrian refugees in Turkey, where government is leading relief efforts, allowing only a few NGOs to provide supporting roles.
“Most don’t have a work permit and thus are easily exploited,” said Elena Braghieri, an aid worker with a local NGO helping refugees. “They don’t have any work insurance, work lengthy shifts, are in general underpaid and, in a few instances, don’t get paid at all.”

He exposes the lies, threats and intimidation used by the police, local authorities, social services, politicians, charities and others to protect establishment figures and Washington.
Editor of the Barnes Review News reported that “Karl Rove was seen by one of my people entering a private homosexual orgy at a five-star Washington hotel over the Mid-Atlantic Leather (MAL).”  “Karl greatly enjoyed the supervision of a certain hairy 350-lb. Leather Dominator who had won the Miss Virginia Daddy Bear title at the MAL festivities.”
“Karl used to hang out at JR’s, which is on 17th between P & S streets, before he became so well-known. This is a respectable gay bar for discreet people…,” adding, “there is an expensive apartment…over near Dupont Circle that certain powerful senators take turns visiting with their pickups.”
NYPost: In 2005, the world was introduced to reclusive billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, friend to princes and an American president, a power broker with the darkest of secrets: He was also a pedophile, accused of recruiting dozens of underage girls into a sex-slave network, buying their silence and moving along, although he has been convicted of only one count of soliciting prostitution from a minor. Visitors to his private Caribbean island, known as “Orgy Island,” have included Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Stephen Hawking and President Donald Trump.
Flight logs show that from 2001 to 2003, Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s private plane, dubbed “The Lolita Express” by the press, 26 times. After Epstein’s arrest in July 2006, federal tax records show Epstein donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation that year.
Epstein was also a regular visitor to Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, and the two were friends. According to the Daily Mail, Trump was a frequent dinner guest at Epstein’s home, which was often full of barely dressed models. In 2003, New York magazine reported that Trump also attended a dinner party at Epstein’s honoring Bill Clinton.

WikiLeaks: AGENTS: BUSH FIRINGS OBSTRUCTED SEX / SPY PROBE Foggo sex ring probe linked to forged Iraq dossier, Israeli espionage, convicted lobbyist Abramoff According to U.S. intelligence sources, President Bush obstructed justice last December when he had senior advisor Karl Rove and White House Counsel Harriet Miers instruct Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez to fire eight U.S. attorneys who were among several others conducting ongoing public corruption and secret national security grand jury investigations connected to an prostitution / pedophile sex ring operating at the Washington Ritz-Carlton and other DC hotels, whose clients included U.S. senators and congressmen, elite Washington news reporters and high government officialsa**some of whom were named by an intelligence insider.
In a 2006 court filing, Palm Beach police noted that a search of Epstein’s home uncovered two hidden cameras.
The Mirror reported that in 2015, a 6-year-old civil lawsuit filed by “Jane Doe No. 3,” believed to be the now-married Giuffre, alleged that Epstein wired his mansion with hidden cameras, secretly recording orgies involving his prominent friends and underage girls. The ultimate purpose: blackmail, according to court papers.
Alleged victim Virginia Giuffre said she was sent to have sex with former US Senator George Mitchell, an allegation he has strenuously denied.
Giuffre, now 36, testified that she had sex with Britain’s Prince Andrew when she was underage, an allegation Buckingham Palace has repeatedly and strenuously denied.
A photo showing the prince standing with his arm around Giuffre’s waist was included in Friday’s unsealed documents.
Giuffre said she was forced to have sex with French businessman Jean-Luc Brunel who runs the MC2 Model Management agency.
Alan Dershowitz is one of America’s most famous lawyers.
Giuffre said she had performed sexual acts on Dershowitz, an allegation he has repeatedly and vehemently denied.
Trump in 1992 directed Florida businessman George Houraney—who would later accuse Trump of sexually harassing his former girlfriend and business partner, Jill Harth—to organize a members’ only “calendar girl” competition at Mar-a-Lago. After Houraney “arranged to have some contestants fly in,” he told the Times in an interview, he discovered that there would be only two attendees. “At the very first party, I said, ‘Who’s coming tonight? I have 28 girls coming.’ It was him and Epstein,” Houraney recalled. “I said, ‘Donald, this is supposed to be a party with V.I.P.s. You’re telling me it’s you and Epstein?’”
Reporter Nick Bryant, who obtained Epstein’s “black book,” said in an interview with Vanity Fair that the scandal will “go all the way up to Mount Olympus”—one person you could say is definitely implicated in the scandal is Rudy Giuliani’s own client, Donald Trump.
Epstein partied with a veritable who’s who of Trump administration employees and friends, including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, and…Rudy Giuliani.
President Donald Trump’s secretary of labor, Alexander Acosta, — while he was the top federal prosecutor in Miami — cut a sweetheart plea deal in 2008 with a billionaire investor accused of having sex with dozens of underage girls.
As the U.S. attorney for Southern Florida, Acosta agreed not to file any federal charges against the wealthy financier, Jeffrey Epstein, if he pled guilty to state charges involving soliciting prostitution and soliciting a minor for prostitution while also removing Trump’s name from the original complaint. Epstein ultimately received an 18-month sentence in county jail and served about 13 months — treatment that provoked outrage from alleged victims in the case.
Epstein’s federal-state prosecution over a decade ago occurred concurrently under the administrations of President George W. Bush and his brother, Florida Governor Jeb Bush (1999-2007) and Jeb Bush’s successor Charlie Crist (2007-2011), who had been state attorney general during the beginning of the Epstein case.
A plaintiff “Jane Doe 3,” later identified as a California native Virginia Roberts, accused Epstein as treating her as a “sex slave” beginning when she was 15 as part of a massive sex trafficking operation he ran exploiting girls in their mid-teens, below the legal age of consent.
There is evidence Epstein kept cameras hidden in the bedrooms of his various homes. Damaging videos of sitting U.S. politicians abusing schoolgirls could constitute a national security threat, providing sources of blackmail.
Prince Andrew and Donald Trump are the only currently serving political figures alleged to have participated in Epstein’s underage activities.
The Trump connection is worth understanding as Mossad daughter Ghislaine Maxwell recruited and trafficked Virginia Roberts from Trumps exclusive Palm Beach Mara Lago resort where she worked in the coat check room. See: Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein
In 1983, Rudy Giuliani took a “demotion” from associate attorney general
to become U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. He led a crusade against the Five Families and gutted them. Three bosses got 100 year
prison sentences and another was whacked with his underboss.
Rudy stepped down in 1989 and John Gotti stepped up to run the Gambino family. The Teflon Don may have been the last New York big-time mafioso. Who took him down in 1991? Robert Mueller. Who was among those working with Mueller? Rod Rosenstein. Who was the U.S. Attorney General overseeing it all? William Barr.
In 2007 and again from 2017, Barr was counsel for politically-connected international law firm Kirkland & Ellis.
Among its other notable attorneys and alumni are Kenneth Starr, John
Bolton, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and numerous Trump
administration attorneys. K&E’s clients include sex
trafficker/pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital.
Barr stonewalled and stopped investigations into all Bush/Clinton and CIA crimes, including BCCI and BNL CIA drug banking, the theft of Inslaw/PROMIS software. Barr stonewalled and destroyed the Church Committee investigations into CIA abuses. Barr stonewalled and stopped inquiries in the CIA bombing assassination of Chilean opposition leader Orlando Letelier.
Data compiled by the research group Maplight showed that defense contractors are topping campaign donor lists, and contributing bigger amounts than any other industry to political action committees (PACs). The biggest PAC donations come from Honeywell, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and General Electric.
Data compiled by International Business Times and MapLight show that foreign influence is hardly confined to the shadows. It’s a big, open, bipartisan business, with foreign government lobbyists delivering millions of dollars of campaign cash to elected officials in Washington.
In all, during the last election, those lobbyists
gave more than $4.5 million to federal lawmakers and candidates. Foreign
lobbyists and their firms’ political action committees were also
responsible for packaging a total of $5.9 million in donations for
candidates and party committees, through an influence-enhancing tactic
known as “bundling.”
Because the donations come from foreign governments’ U.S.-based
lobbyists, they effectively circumvent American laws designed to bar
direct foreign donations. Under federal law, foreign nationals are prohibited from donating to any federal, state, or local campaigns, or political
parties. But foreign governments frequently hire U.S. citizens to
represent their interests, and those people face no such contribution
Trump’s personal financial affairs and investments tie him indelibly to both Wall Street and the military-industrial complex.
American International Group (AIG), became after
its founding by Ken Starr’s uncle, the late Cornelius V. Starr (1892-1968), a vital component of CIA operations in high-level intrigues spanning the globe.
Cornelius Starr’s successor beginning 1960 was his chauffeur’s son
Maurice “Hank” Greenberg, who would become both a multi-billionaire and a
serious candidate in 1996 to become CIA director after authoring
“Making Intelligence Smarter: The Future of U.S. Intelligence,” a major
strategic memo published by the Council on Foreign Relations.
During the financial crisis of 2008-09, AIG received from the holdover Bush and incoming Obama officials approval for $182 billion in federal bailouts from taxpayers under suspicious circumstances — and then awarded its senior executives more than a billion dollars in bonuses.
Several years earlier, New York Attorney Gen. Eliot Spitzer, had infuriated AIG and other Wall Street executives by his aggressive investigations of AIG along with other Wall Street defendants whom Spitzer accused of securities fraud and similar white collar offenses. With complex operations in more than 100 nations, AIG had been reporting for years false profits on a massive scale.
But Spitzer’s bank reported to the U.S. Treasury Department financial transactions involving Spitzer, a Democrat who was by then New York’s governor potentially poised for a bright future as a corruption-fighter. Agents traced the governor’s spending to the Emperors Club, which turned out to be an escort service providing expensive call girls. The New York Times obtained leaked information from authorities. The newspaper reported on March 10, 2008 that Spitzer had used prostitutes on multiple occasions, including one repeatedly profiled.
In disgrace, Spitzer resigned as governor the same week, thereby illustrating to court watchers the dangers a corrupt life-style — especially when combined with investigating powerful entities. Clearly, even an investigator’s supposedly confidential personal banking information could find its way to the front page.
Veterans Today wrote the article Scalia Sleeps with the Fishes exposing the fact that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was a pedophile and that he was killed at a rent boy ranch in Texas where the rich and famous go to indulge in pedophilia.
Scalia was in the court’s majority in the 2000 Bush v. Gore decision, which effectively decided the presidential election for Republican George W. Bush. “Get over it,” Scalia would famously say at speaking engagements in the ensuing years whenever the topic arose.
John Casablancas opened Elite Model Management in 1972 with a roster of all-star talent, cementing his reputation as a top tier agency. But within its first year, 2 of his top models were dead. The first was Paula Brenken, who mysteriously dove out a window in a drunken state the night after she told friends she had been raped by a photographer. The next to die was Emmanuel Dano, who became hooked on drugs soon after signing with Elite. According to Casablancas, she was out for a late night drive with several male friends when they attempted to rape her, and fell out of the moving car while trying to fight off her attackers. He said she died instantly. This story raised quite a few eyebrows, in part because it was John Casablancas who discovered her body- lying in her own bed.
Bertrand Hennet, the chief executive of Elite World, has been charged with buying and transporting cocaine, in the latest scandal to hit the industry.
Around this time Donald Trump was working tirelessly to ingratiate himself into the Manhattan social scene with little success. That changed when he met the man who would become his mentor and closest adviser, Roy Cohn-the infamous lawyer who first gained notoriety as a red baiter during the McCarthy Hearings. Trump met Cohn in 1973 at Le Club, a members-only East Side hangout.
Through Cohn, Trump gained access to Manhattan’s drug-fueled disco scene, of which Cohn was a fixture. Cohn would become the legal advisor to Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, the owners of Studio 54 where Trump would spend much of the 1970’s.
May 17, 2006 – The world’s largest modeling agency has launched an investigation into allegations that senior staff pressured girls as young as 13 into sex and drugs. Several senior executives at Elite Model Management, which represents the super models Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford, have been suspended following the allegations, filmed by an undercover BBC crew. The Mac Intyre Undercover program on BBC1 showed Gerald Marie, the European president of Elite, saying that he was planning to have sex with girls in a modeling competition final. The average age of the girls was 15.
Ex-model Kristen Noel, said her agency, Elite Model Management, sent her to Paris in the early ’80s to stay with an agent who repeatedly groped and forcibly kissed her. She was 16. “Elite protected him and disconnected from their responsibility to me,” Noel told HuffPost.
Mr. Marie, the ex-husband of Linda Evangelista, was filmed propositioning Lisa Brinkworth, an investigative reporter, when she was posing as a model. “I give you one million lire (£300) if you sleep with me,” he is said to have told her. The documentary claimed that two employees had been suspended after boasting about their sexual exploits with younger models. John Casablancas, the chairman of Elite, issued an “unreserved apology for the behavior of his staff captured in the documentary, saying that it showed “some of the darkest aspects of the modeling industry. Marilyn Models, a French agency, had attempted to prevent the documentary from being screened, but a court rejected the agency’s argument that it breached privacy laws. Casablancas does not mention the selling of models to Saudi princes as the darkest aspects of his business. John Casablancas was accused by Ilene Ford from Ford Modeling Agency of introducing young models to Saudi Princes.
None of these men were shy about their behavior, and the fact that they were bedding models as young as 12 on a routine basis was well known.
60 minutes aired a prime-time special on the abuses of underage girls in the modeling industry. Investigative reporter Craig Pyes portrayed the modeling industry as infested with agents who were notorious hustlers and playboys. His report revealed that both Claude Haddad- the head of European scouting for Ford- and Ford’s Paris-based agent Jean-Luc Brunel had been accused of horrific sexual misconduct by many models. The special aired the interviews of dozens of women who accused both Brunel and Haddad of a litany of crimes, ranging from racist invective towards black models to violent rape. And in fact the hidden camera footage captured in filming the special caught it all- from Xavier lamenting about n**er models, to Haddad chuckling about drugging and raping 13 year old girls.

According to Sunday Times, UK, Glamorous hostesses were allegedly paid tens of thousands of pounds from a BAE Systems slush fund to attend lavish parties where a Saudi prince and his entourage were guests of honor. The money was paid to Anouska Bolton Lee and Karajan Mallinder to meet mortgage, rent, credit card and council tax bills. The two women went to parties in a penthouse suite at the Carlton Tower hotel in Knightsbridge attended by Prince Turki bin Nasser and other senior Saudis involved in the £40 billion al-Yamamah arms deal.
BAE Arms Company secretly paid Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia more than $2Billion in connection with Britain’s
biggest ever weapons contract. A series of payments from the British
firm were allegedly channeled through a US Bank in Washington to an
account controlled by Prince Bandar who was Saudi Ambassador to US for
over 20 years.

The Guardian UK, the New York Times, BBC and many international news channels, including Indian News channels reported on September 8, 2015 that Indian police raided New Delhi residence of Senior Saudi DiplomatMajid Hassan Ashoor, working as First Secretary in Saudi Embassy, New Delhi, India and rescued two women who were kept as sex slaves.
It is reported that these women were raped repeatedly by the Diplomat and his Saudi friends for over four months.
The victims told police that they were raped by 6 to 7 high ranking Saudi men, at a time, including the Diplomat who enjoyed diplomatic immunity. These hapless women were tortured whenever they refused to cooperate with the rapists.

An American diplomatic document reveals a secret party of a Saudi Prince with alcohol, drugs, sex and prostitutes. In yet another flurry of secret documents of U.S. diplomacy, the site WikiLeaks showed, in great detail, a Halloween party organized by a wealthy Saudi prince in Jeddah with the highest quality drink, drugs and sex with prostitutes.
One of the secret documents, dated 18/11/2009, reported: “Behind the facade of Wahhabi conservatism on the streets, the nightlife for the young elite of Jeddah is thriving and throbbing. The full range of worldly temptations and vices are available – alcohol, drugs, sex – but strictly behind closed doors.”
American consulate officials were invited to the Halloween party,
an all-American date, at the mansion of a young Saudi prince in
Jeddah. The prince’s name was omitted from the document, as the
diplomats themselves acknowledge that their names should be withheld.
The only clue is that this Prince belongs to the Al Thunayan huge

It is alleged that there are issues related to Saudi Royals which are so embarrassing to Washington that these must be kept secret from public domain.
of the US State Department are confirmed by the following BBC obituary
on the death of King Fahd of Saudi Arabia.
BBC OBITUARY – KING FAHD – “Monday, August 1, 2005 – King Fahd (1921-2005) ascended to Saudi Throne in 1982. He had a reputation as a playboy in his youth, with allegations of excessive womanizing, drinking and gambling.
Indeed, it is claimed that he once lost more than $6m in one night at the Monte Carlo casino. There
was a joke that new Cadillac made-to-order cars were dumped as soon
as their ashtrays were full. King Fahd himself amassed a personal
fortune estimated at $18bn“.
was known for his extravagant vacations in Spain’s Costa del Sol. The
posh resort town of Marbella is where he built his magnificent
palace named “Mar Mar”, and each year for a month or more he would stay
there. Luxury villas and hundreds of rooms in five-star hotels
would be reserved for his entourage and hundreds of millions dollars
would be spent by the King and his Royals.
There are a number of secret Misyar Marriages of Saudi royals in which young women are kept at secret locations.
The Guardian, UK reported on November 3, 2015 that a Palestinian-born woman, Janan Harb, currently residing in London, was the secret wife of late King Fahd.
Harb told the court that Fahd married her in 1968 when she was 19 years old.
King Saud bin Abdul Aziz (1902-1969) who ruled Saudi Arabia between 1953-64 was deposed and
lived in exile in Europe for plundering oil wealth, womanizing, gambling
and other vices. It is reported that he fathered a total of 115 children, from hundreds of beautiful young women.
Princess Basma bint Saud bin Abdul Aziz, born on March 1st, 1965 to Jamila Mehri, a Syrian woman, is the 115th child of King Saud. The princess is a divorcee; currently living in Acton, England with 3 of her 5 Children.
It is estimated that there are over 15,000 members of Saudi Royal Family whose royal spending, housing and perks are paid by Saudi State.

Staff reporter posted on September 8, 2011 a Wiki Leaks release
saying King Abdullah is not letting age slow him down.
The King is a decade older than the US thought he was. Even at 92, he hadn’t given up on romance,
though he needed a little boost from Viagra. The US State Department
telegram from 2008 says King Abdullah was born in 1916; at the time of
the telegram, he remained a smoker and got regular hormone shots, it
The information in the telegram came from a Western health expert involved with the Saudi royal family, Ynet reports. The source was in Saudi Arabia to care for one of Abdullah’s wives, but in a mix-up, he got the king’s records. Before getting the telegram, the US had guessed that Abdullah’s age was between 82 and 87. But it was revealed that he was 92 years old.
These appalling statistics show that about 90 percent of Saudi Women are being forced into Government sponsored prostitution in the name of “Misyar” fake marriages.
In this relationship, arrangements are made as a customary marriage but there are no official contracts signed and this relationship also does not give women any rights whatsoever. She is kept as along as the man wishes to use her for sex.
(Summer holiday marriage) It is a tourism marriage practiced by Saudis and other Salafis who go on vacation to countries, like Yemen, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and other countries. In these countries they take advantage of poor Muslim families by fake marriages with very young girls between the ages of 9 to 16 years in collusion with local middlemen and agents who are paid for these notorious services.
It is reported by BBC in 2014 that King Abdullah locked his 4 daughters into isolation away from human population at a sea front in Jeddah for more than a 13 years and did not allow them to see their mother or any other human being. Their mother lives in exile in London, UK. The girls were also denied proper food and medical treatment for their psychological disorders and left to die in isolation.
Prince Walid bin Talal has summered in Cannes for the past 3 decades, and owns a 281 foot yacht called “the Kingdom” that he bought from Donald Trump. The yacht comes complete with a disco studio and helicopter.
Saudi Arabia is ruled by a devout brand of Islam known as Wahhabism, which metes out barbaric punishments including public beheadings and floggings, and is enforced by roving Islamic morality police, the Muttawa
But illegal vice trades are thriving in the desert state famous for pilgrimages to the holy sites of Mecca and Medina.
Al-Quds also reported that a Moroccan journalist infiltrated a villa in Rabat, Morocco
and was able to get closer to “the world of the Saudis”. In May
2002, she reported revealing the abuse that some Moroccan teenagers
underwent at the hands of sex traders in Saudi Arabia.
A British insider has revealed for the first time how Saudis from elite circles use social networking apps like Tinder to source prostitutes, cannabis, black market abortion pills and 99 per cent proof moonshine.
He said: “Saudi Arabia prides itself with presenting its hard-line and devoutly religious face to the world, but beneath the surface everything is available at the right price and people turn a blind eye in one of the world’s richest countries where money is never an issue.”
The source said: “The parties are pretty crazy even by western standards.
“The real drug of choice is Captagon – a strong amphetamine popular with ISIS fighters who want to stay alert.
“Rich young Saudi men love it and it has led to a deadly craze known as Drifting where they speed expensive sports cars up to 100mph and then slam on the hand brake for fun.
Our source said that despite the draconian punishments on offer to lawmakers, it is only the poor and migrants who live in great fear.
The Telegraph, UK reported on October 16, 2015 that Saudi Prince Abdel Mohsen Bin Walid Bin Abdulaziz and four others were arrested after what was described as the biggest ever drugs bust at Beirut (Lebanon) International Airport. They were “attempting to smuggle over two tons of Captagon pills and cocaine”.
Captagon (amphetamine phenethylline) is used by Salafi terrorists fighting in Syria. This drug is reported to cause heightened state of alertness and is banned all over the world.
Thanks to Saudi supplies, this drug is thriving in Syria,
and is known as go-to-drug of ISIS militants, who are made addicted to
it to stay alert during long battles and night missions.
Prince Nayef bin Fawwaz Al Shalaan is reported to have moved two tons of cocaine from Colombia to an airport outside Paris, using his diplomatic status and a royal family 727 jet, U.S. and French law enforcement authorities told ABC News. He is under indictment by U.S. and French authorities, but living outside the reach of American law in Saudi Arabia, according to Raffanello. The United States and Saudi Arabia have no extradition treaty. A trial for the prince’s alleged co-conspirators is scheduled to begin in a federal court in Miami. Prince Al-Shalaan also has an earlier drug charge — he was indicted in Mississippi on narcotics charges in 1984, and remains a fugitive in that case as well, according to the DEA.
Saudi Princess Amira Bint Aidan Bin Nayef has exposed the prince as a pedophile. Saudi Princess Amira Bint Aidan Bin Nayef has spoken out to expose Saudi Arabian Prince Al Waleed bin Talal as a member of an elite pedophile ring.
Speaking to French newspaper Le Monde, the princess revealed
that the prince was part of a global child trafficking network that he
ran in secret on behalf of the primary beneficiaries of the princes of
the House of Saud.
Her shocking exposé has revealed that the Saudi royal “trades” children by buying, renting and gifting them to other high-level elites around the world.
The children are usually orphans taken from countries like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Djibouti, Somalia, Nigeria, Romania, and Bulgaria.
The prince often gives the child sex slaves to other elites with the children then becoming their “property” and “theirs to keep,” according to Princess Aidan.
to Aidan, the ex-wife of the Saudi Prince Al Waleed bin Talal, who was
recently arrested as part of the anti-corruption purges in the country,
those who accuse others of corruption and money laundering, are in fact
highly corrupted themselves.
Russian online news portal Fort Russ reports quoting Aden’s interview on Le Monde, the princess said they’ve
turned the city of Jeddah into a slave market where underage girls are
being exploited for noisy sex parties involving drug and alcohol abuse.
said that one of the main reasons why this keeps going on is that the
members of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention
of Vice (Saudi Sharia police) tend to keep away from the matter, fearing
they might lose their jobs, should they intervene.
quoted the princess as saying that a Halloween event was recently held
in Jeddah, and which was attended by 150 people, including employees of
The scene was like a typical nightclub anywhere
outside the Kingdom, with available wines, dancing couples in fancy
costumes, and a DJ.
Bint Aidan said the price of smuggled liquor in the country is very high.
For instance, the price of the Smirnoff vodka is $400, sometimes forcing party organizers to refill the original bottles with a local wine called Siddiqui.
According to the ad, the asking money for every Syrian girl is 10,000 Saudi rials.
Kazal, an 18 year old from Homs, said she was married off to a 50-year-old man from Saudi Arabia who paid her family about $3,100.
The children become the property of those who buy them and are not allowed to leave without permission.
the Asian maids who come to work often find themselves in a kind of
slave-like position. Young girls are divided into smaller groups and
exploited for immoral acts.
Trafficking of white women, and exploiting them for sexual practices, is also relatively common.
After he gained control of Mecca, King Ibn Saud set a “pre-condition” that those who wished to perform the pilgrimage into Mecca would have to accept Wahhabism, or else be branded as non-Muslims, and become ineligible for entry into the city. Those who disagreed with the Wahhabis were branded as “infidels” and subsequently killed, and their property was confiscated (this practice continues to date).
Saudi Royal Family stand tall in corruption, at the same time their King claims that he is the custodians of the two holy mosques in Makka and Madina. They invented a new religion “Salafism” to replace Islam in the world. Indeed, their religious, moral and financial corruption affects 1.6 billion Muslims of the world, both directly and indirectly.
Some people say that Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) has
chosen Saudi Royal family to take care of the two Grand Mosques in
Makka and Madina, therefore Salafism should not be treated as a
political doctrine away from Islam.
Those who talk like this are unaware of the history of Islam. At the time of Advent of Prophet Mohammad ( صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)
Ka’ba was under the occupation of Pagan Idol worshipers. As a matter
of fact 360 Idols were kept around it which were worshiped by them.
Similar is the situation now.
all know, Salafis are Sky Idol God worshipers. They worship a Sky
Idol who has eyes, face, hands and a huge human like physical body and
who is sitting on the skies. To legitimize their Idol worship, they
misinterpret Quranic verses and Ahadith. They have occupied Islamic
heartland and the grand mosques of Makka and Madina in 1925 and are
propagating their Salafi /Wahhabi theories in the world as Islamic
Therefore, occupation of grand mosques in Makka and Madina is not a testimony that the occupiers follow Islam.
Also, you will be aghast to see the black deeds of Saudi Royal family. They are involved in all kinds of vices anyone could think of under the sun. Looking at them, how can one believe that they are the chosen ones to serve the grand mosques and Islam.
It is not just within Saudi Arabia, the Royals have developed an efficient network of their paid agents all over the globe who are busy in spreading Salafism in the world. The Saudi Clerics, particularly the Government appointed Imams of the mosques are on the forefront in Salafi Dawa in the world.
Punishment for reading the Bible in Saudi Arabia is to have your right hand shredded.
The Wahhabi “medieval-morality police” of Saudi Arabia, and their “Ikhwan” fighters currently occupying parts of Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria, Afghan and Yemen, will ultimately be dismantled – because history has proven that tyranny is always toppled by the uprising of its oppressed citizens.
Saudi Arabia has decreed to execute those who spread rumors about the government on social media.
Britain has been selling weapons to Saudi Arabia, despite concerns about the kingdom’s war crimes in Yemen, and it seemed “inevitable” that those war crimes involved UK weapons, “according to a report leaked.”
Beyond providing weapons, Britain has stunned human rights groups by blocking efforts by the EU to establish an independent international inquiry into the alleged war crimes in Yemen.
Yemen has been so brutalized by Saudi Arabia that teams of Doctors Without Borders (DWB) have been forced to evacuate, leaving citizens without care.
It isn’t just the UK that is supporting the cause of jihadists and their atrocious human rights abuses; so is the Trump Administration.Over $350 billion in arms sales to the kingdom have already been approved by the Trump administration.
Now, adding to all that this latest news about sex slaves captured by the Islamic State and “being sold at sickening auctions in Saudi Arabia,” how can the current leadership of these countries be trusted.

WASHINGTON, Oct 4 (Reuters) – FBI Director Christopher Wray said Friday that Facebook’s proposed move to encrypt its popular messaging program would turn the platform into a “dream come true for predators and child pornographers.”
Wray, addressing a crowd of law
enforcement and child protection officials at the Department of Justice
in Washington, said that Facebook’s plan would produce “a lawless space
created not by the American people or their representatives but by the
owners of one big company.”
Facebook intends to add encryption of wide swathes of communications on its platform.
speech, which came ahead of an address on the same topic by Attorney
General William Barr, ratchets up the pressure on Facebook as the U.S.
and allied governments renew their push to weaken the digital
protections around the messages billions of people exchange each day.
speech is part of a renewed push by the American, Australian, and
British governments to force tech companies to help them circumvent the
encryption that helps keeps digital communications secure.
Debates over encryption have been rumbling for more than 25 years, but officials’ anxiety has increased as major tech companies move toward automatically encrypting the messages on their platforms and the data held on their phones.
In the past, officials have cited the threat of terrorism to buttress
their campaigns again encryption. But as the Islamic State and other
extremist groups fade from the headlines, governments are trying a
different tack, invoking the threat of child abuse to argue for “lawful
access” to these devices.
Facebook’s privacy-focused move,
announced by founder Mark Zuckerberg earlier this year, is causing
particular consternation because the platform is the source of millions
of tips to authorities about child abuse images every year.
Zuckerberg, speaking on the company’s weekly internal Q&A livestream, defended the decision, saying he was “optimistic” that Facebook would be able to identify predators even in encrypted systems using the same tools it used to fight election interference.
“We’re going to lose the ability to find those kids who need to be
rescued,” Wray said. “We’re going to lose the ability to find the bad
However, many of those outside the law enforcement have
applauded Facebook’s push for privacy and security. Academics, experts,
and privacy groups have long worried that circumventing the protections
around private communications would open dangerous vulnerabilities that
could make the entire internet less safe — and leave billions of users
exposed to abusive surveillance.
Wray steered clear of making any specific proposal, saying that “companies themselves are best placed” to offer a way for law enforcement to get around encryption.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced that his office agreed to a partnership with Facebook “to use innovative data and analytical methods to crack down on human trafficking.”
“One goal is to try to identify children featured in these ads — with an emphasis on missing children,” according to my source, who has asked not to be identified.
It started when I became aware of a page someone on Facebook had posted under the title “Pedophiles are People too.”
As I wrote then: “At the top of the page is a close-up shot of a very young girl walking alone down an alleyway. In the distant background is a blurry picture of a man with an open trench coat. His hands are in his pockets.”
I figured this would be an easy fix. I’d call Facebook and they would act mortified — and the page would come down. But that’s not what happened. Facebook said that because there was no explicit nudity or sex on that page, it would be allowed to remain.
By the time this page was pointed out to me, there had already been 21 people who “liked” it, and hundreds had had pro-pedophilia conversations.
Soon after Facebook showed a very obvious lack of concern, I called up companies that advertised on the site. Eventually the page was taken down.
Facebook’s pages are also being used — sources around the world told me — as a wee-hours-of-the-morning gathering place for pedophiles and others seeking illegal sex.
They share “jokes” and trade pictures. One comment that stayed up on Facebook for a long time was “You know you [sic] skilled when you can fit 10 kids in 1 self storage [room].”
