"Rules and restrictions apply because they played everything in this life. Okay. Let's get to this. Saudi journalist, dissident type guy, Jamal Khashoggi what do we know? He's a Saudi guy. He worked for the Washington Post. He lives in the United States briefly, but he had worked previously with the Saudi Royal family, and he walks into the Saudi embassy in Turkey. He doesn't walk out. We also know that I think fifteen members of the Saudi government arrived in Turkey that day they, they left pretty quickly and there are claims that he was killed in the Saudi embassy and chopped up well, still alive. Doesn't sound great the way this is being spun by the mainstream media. First of all is that this is somehow Trump's fault. The Trump needs to do something about this Trump needs to get rid of our agreements with Turkey with regard to selling weapons hundred billion dollar arms deals, whatever as Saudi Arabia rather. So this is how it's being spun. He and the guy Jamal Khashoggi he's being spun as a lead. Left wing progressive liberal pro democracy, reformer guy against the Saudi Royal family, which is not willing to reform and is oppressive. The real truth is far more complicated than that. The first question that you have to ask yourself when you hear about this story is why am I supposed to care? Why am I supposed to care that the Saudi government took out this guy that took out this former. He formerly worked with them. I guess Jamal Khashoggi was aligned with other with another faction of the Saudi Royal family than the one that is currently in power under Mohammed bin Salman. So you know a guy whose political fortunes of changed has been killed by the Saudi government. Why am I supposed to care about that? I don't mean to sound callous or cold ordered or anything like that, but we know that the Saudi Royal family commits heinous acts all the time and has for decades and decades. We know that it's one of the most repressive regimes on earth. Why. Why am I supposed to care about this one? They do it all of the time. Mike question for those who would call us callous for asking that question is why don't you care about the the beheadings that are happening all the time, the clamping down on political dissidents. Why don't you care about that? Why is it this one in particular, I, I'm not. I don't really understand what new information is being conveyed by this killing of a dissident guy. Is there anything new if we had our arms deal with Saudi Arabia, two weeks ago, why would we change it now? It's not like the government has changed its stripes. If anything, the government is getting a little less repressive. They're liberalizing certain laws. They're letting women drive for the first time in a very long time. They're opening up certain movie theaters little little freedoms are being opened up even economic freedoms. They're now starting to do a little bit of business with Israel, and that is the biggest issue that's actually where this gets down to, and it shows that Jamal Khashoggi being put up by the left wing as this messianic figure. Or you know this, this progressive secular westerner is of was far from them. So what does this actually proved to me proves to me that if you pal around with jihadists, things aren't going to turn out very well, that's that's the only conclusion I can draw from this because we know that Jamal Kagi palled around with his Llamas for decades. And by the way, now the left now that we're pointing this out that this guy palled around with Islamist radicals even with some bin Laden. Now that people are pointing this out. The left is saying, this is a smear campaign by right wingers trying to defend President Trump's relationship with the Saudis. Vernon Trump didn't develop the US relationship with the Saudi Royal family. We've had it for a very long time, but to call a smear merchants, it's it's not the right wing, which is coming up with these connections between Khashoggi and terrorists in HAMAs terrorists in Asia terrorists like Osama bin Laden of this has been known for decades and actually it's left wing papers to horizon in Israel is reporting on all of this, so don't really buy any of that. What do we know? We know that Yamaoka shaggy was in his Llamas, he's he was a lifelong member of the Muslim Brotherhood. He favored radical aspects of the Muslim Brotherhood. We know that he was a regime insider as well. So not..

"Use tools. No. In the future. And the more. But I thought it wasn't a trial. It wasn't a trial. So wait what that was Senator Bill Cassidy from Louisiana. God love him. He got some of that Graham says looks like somebody's been hanging out with sassy Graham. Whoo. Love it. Love it. Welcome to the second hour of the program. ID lash on Twitter official Dana lash on Facebook. So while we gotta because I want to talk about the Saudi Arabia, a journalist that well who was in Turkey and never came out of a Saudi Arabian embassy. But also listen to this. So, you know, there was some big movement here where it concerned judicial appointments. Correct. All where I was looking at this story and political earlier they had to begrudgingly, right? Democrats agree to confirmations of fifteen Trump. Judges. Can almost hear the Polian dynamite. Senate Democrats accepted an offer Thursday from Republicans to confirm fifteen lifetime federal judges any ability to go to recess. I've I shouldn't be like that. No, no, no, no, no matter because Biblically or not even though you're not supposed to engage in too much schadenfreude. But it's really difficult. They wanted to go to recess guys. Mitch was like, Nope. You're not gonna go. If you wanna go. Who was it a friend of mine, Ed Morrissey, he goes to the the because that one guy called him called Mitch McConnell cocaine. Mitch and to the Eric Clapton song if Tim's wanna get down and campaign on the ground. Oh, so they get to go because Democrats who were in red states, they desperately need to go campaign. Oh my gosh. They gotta go camping. But they can't because they gotta be in DC, and so McConnell is like, yeah. You can go campaign. Get these judges through because remember they were they were trying to obstruct. So Mitch McConnell. They were trying to logjam is what they were doing. So Mitch McConnell got him through Chuck Schumer said I'm going to work. He promised the Washington Post literally said that what Chuck Schumer was trying to do as a ransom because Schumer said I'm going to use every tool tactic available to make sure that this does not happen. Well, they got their freedom to go campaign. So they're on recess until midterms. They got their freedom and Mitch got his fifteen to dish lifetime judicial appointments their their votes on those. Nah, nah. Fifteen judicial nominees. Oh, by the way. It was noted he didn't just settle for the judges. Mitch. Yeah. My friend had not did not just settle for the judges. No, no, no, no, Mitch got two dozen Senator McConnell never met him. And by the way, I'm gonna start rolling back. Some of the criticism heaped up on his head like burning coals to San. He got two dozen other appointees confirmed at the same time. Senate got fifteen they confirmed fifteen judicial nominees, and then they confirmed twenty one executive branch nominees by unanimous consent. 'cause they wanted to go, and they they needed to go and they wanted to recess. Ooh. Yep. Yeah, you're right. That is that's a lot. That's a lot. So they needed to desperately go, and that's a huge win. And this is why McConnell is really good at navigating the Senate he knows all the parliamentary rules. He knows everything. And he was well he said he was willing to hold senators in Washington through Christmas. Remember that? And he said he'd do it again. Oh my heavens. So that is hugely significant. And this is what was happening is everyone was screaming over Konya. Yeah. Awesome. Just saying I'm just saying so this so you have twelve lifetime circuit court judges twenty one other executive nominees. This is huge. And similar. Some activists are mad because Democrats didn't fight enough. And. Warren goes, well, I oppose the deal, but she went ahead and did it because she wanted to go back. And you know, they're willing to sell y'all out for to be able to get back home. I mean, let's let's be real. That's what this was. They wanted to sell everybody out. So they could go home. So that's good news. Right. All of those. I mean, those are lifetime appointments wasn't that? Didn't you hear that? By the way with with Cavanaugh so lifetime appointment. Okay. Success? Thanks, guys. Is there fifteen of them fifth teen of them? Now as we switch over to Saudi Arabia because this story is really this is really insane. And I see this really awful media spin on this too, which is unfortunate. But you know, the situation with this is that a reporter who. Was he had been critical previously? Of the new ruler. The new leadership in Saudi Arabia. And had written a bunch of Jamal Kosugi had written things about the their crown prince the Saudi Crown prince, and he was a legal resident of the United States. He lived in both Istanbul and in London. And so he was in Turkey. And he was apparently visiting the Saudi. The embassy or their consulate there, here's visiting the consulate an Istanbul. And then he just disappeared. Off face of the earth. He just disappeared. And Turkish authorities say well, he was murdered. And they said they had recordings proving that he was murdered. And there were some pretty gruesome rumors going around about how and they were blaming some Saudis that had entered Turkey not long before Jamaica soggy disappeared, and then they left, and they think, you know, the Saudis say, no, it's not us. We didn't do it. So it's kind of going back and forth and. So this is the way because this now could affect two different alliances actually three different alliances. The US Saudi Arabian alliance. The Turkish Saudi Arabia alliance and the United States in Turkish alliance which you know, I don't I have my complaints about Don, particularly when he beat protesters. So, but the fact that this guy was a legal resident of the United States changes things. And he apparently like the only thing that he did that would have invoked the Saudi Crown prince's wrath is to have written about him in a negative light. And so two Turkish officials say this is why he disappeared. And so there you go. So you have there are some senators that want an investigation in effect. We have some audio here. Because Heather Nauert was was asked about this during a press conference, and they don't really know a whole lot more than what you're reading in the press apparently. And it's, you know, do you believe the Saudis? Do you believe Turkey, and this is Heather Nauert was the is the State Department spokesman on this? This is when she was asked about it. Twenty seventeen. An earlier this week. The vice president has talked about the president has talked about this. We are all concerned about his whereabouts. We don't have any information on his whereabouts right now or what happened to him as you can see anytime you turn on the news you open the newspaper. There is a lot of speculation. And there are a ton of rumors out there, we are making determinations and watching this fax, we don't have the facts yet. And so we are going to hold back on our comments until we have concrete information that the US government can share. Well, which is and that's true. So now, there are some senators, and it's a bipartisan group they want the Saudis sanctioned, and because they believe that they're complicit in this disappearance. Rand Paul wants to stop arm sales and military assistance to Saudi Arabia, and in fact over at Brookings. They noted that the Royal Saudi air force is entirely dependent upon on American and British support for its air fleet of F, fifteens Apaches and tornado aircraft. He says if either Washington or London halted the flow of logistics, the Royal Saudi air force, it'd be grounded and. This. You also have to take into consideration how Iran would benefit from this. Because it hasn't been one of the things, and I think this is a really good point to make that that Matthew continuity over at free beacon noted, and I hadn't thought about this previously. But it said, but Iran, it, you know, they haven't really been brought up in relation to Jamal Jamal Kagi hockey, but it's a factor because they're pressing up against the Saudis on multiple fronts. They fostered Shia rebellion with the kingdom itself. And in Bahrain. They've armed and abetted the who 'this who have been going back and forth with the Saudis and their. It's proxies actually are on the cusp of victory in Syria, basically control in Lebanon, and they've sown chaos in Iraq, Iran's European allies are attempting to create a financial lifeline that would provide relief from US sanctions and Saudi Arabia has been the Lynch pin of America's Middle East strategy for close to a century. But that relationship has not been without costs continuity note. What would it cost? If the alliance fractured, the Saudis would be imperilled in Yemen, potentially endangering the free flow of traffic in the Gulf of Aden. Iranian victory would extend a Shia crescent to the south and accompany the one running through Iraq and Syria and Lebanon. So. Trump said that Saudi Arabia would last two weeks without American support. And it says the an Continente notes the Middle East, and lavar are already filled with examples of state failure is America prepared to risk another Saudi meltdown would deprive the United States of a counter terror ally, it would Royal energy markets and create pockets of instability in which Jihadist and Iranian backed militias thrive, and it would also make it bad for Israel to. So they say to forestall such a disaster the Saudis like others before the might turn to Russia or China for support. That then would accelerate the waning of American influence in the Middle East and boost the very autocracies we condemn. So. You have to weigh evidence and consider how you would punish them. If it turns out, they act like Russia or China, North Korea or Syria or I- or Iran. This is it's not as cut and dry. See nuance, but nuances debt so for a lot of people. It's black or white one or the other. One or two air be. But there are there's a lot to consider. I'm not saying that it ha isn't happening is an awful. But for those who were saying through this you need to realize what happens if you do a beer, see. Choose your own adventure. There's a different ru there's a different result and consequence for each choice. And the same as with this. We gotta get going because we got more in store we have coming up quick. You don't wanna miss it? That's some good headlines for you. Carshield is a program. Well, it's a it's a extended vehicle service protection is what it is. And you don't wanna get.
