Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has increased its stake in Twitter over the last six weeks to 5.17%, making him the second biggest shareholder after former CEO and co-founder Evan Williams.
Alwaleed, one of the richest men in Saudi Arabia, bought a 3% stake in the company in 2011 before it went public in 2013. The current stake of 35 million shares is worth $1 billion, and includes 30 million shares owned directly by the prince and five million by his Kingdom Holding Company.
Boycott FOX News
How ironic is it that the FOX News where Sean Hannity has been howling about Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf wanting “Sharia law” to replace our existing laws is the very same FOX News whose parent company, the Rupert Murdoch controlled News Corporation, has as its second largest shareholder Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal
Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch has partnered with Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal to launch a new 24-hour news network for the Arab world, a move that has drawn mockery from Murdoch’s critics and questions from media experts.
The new channel, based in Saudi Arabia, “will focus on development in Saudi Arabia and the Arab world on the political, economic and social fronts,” Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the world’s 19th-wealthiest person according to Forbes, said in a statement.
Aujan Coca-Cola Beverages Company (ACCBC) and Rani Refreshments (RR) were established in 2012 following the successful establishment of a partnership between The Coca-Cola Company and Aujan Industries.
RR is the trademark owner to premier beverages brands including Rani and Barbican, while ACCBC is an authorized manufacturer and distributor of its products in 15 countries across the Middle East and North Africa. ACCBC is also the licensed manufacturer in the Middle East for VIMTO.

If you have accounts with these firms close them: JPMorgan Chase & Co / Morgan Stanley / Citigroup Inc.
The American executives will want deals. Some, like Jamie Dimon, chief executive officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Morgan Stanley boss James Gorman, already have agreements to advise oil giant Saudi Aramco on its initial public offering, which may be the largest ever. JPMorgan and Citigroup Inc. helped arrange a $17.5 billion Saudi bond sale last year and a $9 billion Islamic bond issue in April. This weekend the banks will aim for more contracts as the Saudis prepare to sell other state assets.
If you own these stocks sell them: Boeing Co. / Lockheed Martin Corp. / General Electric Co. / Halliburton Co.
Boeing Co. CEO Dennis Muilenburg and Lockheed Martin Corp. head Marillyn Hewson will be looking to cement defense sales. Aramco could sign at least 10 deals with companies including General Electric Co. and oil field-service businesses Schlumberger Ltd. and Halliburton Co. to open manufacturing plants in the kingdom, people familiar with the plans say.
Write, call, let your voice be heard:
Western support of regimes that murder people for apostasy can only exist in the shadows. If you vote for your local representatives on the basis of their standing on realpolitik and morally repugnant deals that are justified by some vaguely defined “national interests”, a lot of “friends” will have to change their ways.
What can your Congress member do?
1.) Domestic oil and gas production – the more the better.
2.) Nuclear energy in addition to renewables – hydrocarbons should not be used to produce electricity for large networks, period.
3.) Base arms (weapons) sales on human rights abuses/progress.

Justice for Jamal Khashoggi
An International Day of Mourning
To stand as one people, without color, creed or division. We are one.
AN INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER AND CALM
This is a call for a day of prayer and calm. To mourn the dead. This is a non-violent protest. A day of remembrance, not a day for violence.
1.) To participate we call on everyone everywhere to wear black to mourn the dead.
2.) Do not go to work, or to school or to church, as remembrance of the dead.
3.) No shopping. Do not spend one dime. No buses, no trains and no planes for one day to show our solidarity with those who have been murdered.
