Boy the Saudis really had a turd misfire on this hit.

Clarice Feldman

Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) advisor Yassin Aktay said Ankara did not accuse Saudi Arabia in the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

In an interview with Russia Today, the advisor to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said that Turkey was not accusing the Saudi state in Khashoggi’s disappearance, hinting at the possibility of a conspiracy to divide between Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

He also hinted at the possibility that Khashoggi was abducted by a third party, or perhaps by members of what he called the “deep state.”

He denied earlier reports that quoted him as saying Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate, saying: “What Reuters reported about his killing is not an official statement.”

He also stressed that Turkish-Saudi relations have historical roots, and hopes that they will not be affected by this issue.

Erdogan had said on Sunday that authorities still have expect a positive outcome in Khashoggi’s disappearance, noting that he is waiting for the results of investigations on the Saudi journalist.

The Turkish president said in a speech to members of his Justice and Development Party that he was following Khashoggi’s case himself.

The Khashoggi family confirmed that they are coordinating with the Saudi government to learn about the latest developments in the case. The legal advisor, Motasem Khashoggi, told Al Arabiya English that the family is coordinating with the Saudi government in the case.

He added: “We trust the government and the actions taken, and all the efforts that are taken in the case of Jamal Khashoggi.”

Washington Times thinks Jeff Sessions may have woken up: Jeff Sessions rips federal judges over anti-Trump bias

But a commenter at Lucianne.com has this perspective:


Tough words from The Recuser on the very day he allowed a senior Senate official escape numerous felony charges for leaking documents to the press by pleading guilty to a single count. Sessions speech was proper, but he appears to suffer from same delusion as the liberal judges he condemns, that of allowing politics and not the laws of the US to influence his decisions. Sessions’ appointment as AG will haunt the Trump Administration for years to come.

Beto O’Rourke Updates JFK in Message to Dems: ‘Bear Any Burden’ to Help Me Win

Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Beto O'Rourke (Texas) told reporters on Monday that he will not share his whopping $38.1 million fundraising haul with fellow Democrats.

O'Rourke told reporters his refusal to share his campaign dollars with other Democratic candidates stems from a need to "deliver" for Texas and the country, the Washington Examiner reported.

"No," O'Rourke answered when asked if he would share his fundraising haul. "I'm focused on Texas. Most of our contributions have come from Texas. All of them have come from people. Not a dime from PACs."

O'Rourke added that if people wanted to donate to other campaigns, they can do so.

"Folks contributed to this race because they want us to win this race. If they want to contribute to another campaign, of course they're welcome to do that," O'Rourke said. "No, we're going to spare no expense. We will bear any burden to make sure that we deliver for this state and for this country. That means a victory on the 6th of November."

Some Democrats have worried about O'Rourke leaving money in his war chest after the election that could have gone to more vulnerable Democrats in the Senate. Since Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's hearings, polls have shown a bump in enthusiasm for GOP voters, especially for GOP Senate candidates.

"I've got to honor the commitment that those who've contributed to this campaign have made to me, and their desire that we use this to win this election," O'Rourke said. "If they want to contribute to someone else, they should do so. If they want to contribute to a campaign that's going to win this historic victory for Texas and the country, then I'm grateful for the contribution and I'm going to make the most of it, so that's what we're focused on."

Despite the huge fundraising numbers, O'Rourke trails in the polls against incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz (R). The RealClearPolitics average of polls has Cruz with a 7 point lead.

Lindsey Graham calls for Saudi Arabia crown prince to be pushed out of power

“This guy has got to go,” Mr. Graham said on Fox News, “Saudi Arabia are you listening? There’s a lot of good people you can choose, but MBS [the crown prince] has tainted your country and tainted himself.”

Mr. Graham explained he was one of Saudi Arabia’s staunchest supporters in Congress, but now feels “used and abused” in light of Khashoggi crisis. The South Carolina Republican said the crown prince is “toxic” and can never be a world leader.

“I’m not going back to Saudi Arabia as long as this guy is in charge,” he said.

Clayton State University criminal justice professor Andrea Allen offered students extra credit to attend an event on Tuesday supporting Democrat Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“Although I never offer extra credit, I’m making a one-time exception,” Allen told students in the email. “I’m sure you’ve heard by now that the Abrams campaign along with Senator Warren are visiting campus tomorrow at 10 am in the UC commons.

OL Lives!

I am back in Potomac and NOT happy about that.

We had YL2's future in laws visit us on Nantucket last week then we packed up the pups and came south, stopping at YL's for a night on the way for a grandkid fix.

After getting settled at home and making my "house" lists, I went to drive through my shopping centers to make more "work" lists. I told Mrs. OL that if I had not returned by cocktail hour, she would find my car at the airport and me back on Nantucket.

As to the usual subjects of discussion here, we are well into "wait and see what comes out of the oven" mode now and we will finally see our future on Election Day in a few weeks. I have no idea what to expect, though I maintain hope for keeping both houses even though all the experts say otherwise. If we lose the House and with it MAGA, then there will be years of "coulda-woulda-shoulda". If Trump pulls out a win-win, then we can sit back and enjoy the ride.

Elizabeth Warren Melts Down in Wake of DNA Disaster

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) launched a bizarre Twitter rant late Monday afternoon following the disastrous rollout of DNA results that further debunked her decades-long claim to American Indian ancestry. Warren’s thread of 20-plus (and counting) tweets began at about 5:30 p.m. ET, where she attempted to both insult President Trump and defend herself.

In her first tweet, and without any evidence, Warren made the outlandish claim that Trump “makes creepy physical threats about me.” The truth is that all Trump has ever done is ridicule her false claims about being Cherokee.

Two Trump tweets dismantled her.

Neera Tanden: No ‘Reasonable’ Person Should Have Further Questions on Warren’s DNA Results

Democrat strategist and president of the Center for American Progress (CAP) Neera Tanden declared Tuesday that Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) DNA test results — which revealed, at most, 1.6% Mesoamerican heritage — end the debate about her claimed Cherokee lineage once and for all.

“No reasonable member of the press or the public should have further questions,” Tanden told Annie Linskey, a Warren groupie whose Boston Globe report on the DNA test results continued a campaign to legitimize the senator’s 2020 presidential aspirations. “It sort of ends this conversation and we can all move on from here.”

Graham Announces He’ll Take DNA Test to See if He’s More Cherokee Than Warren: ‘I Think I Can Beat Her’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) announced Tuesday he would take a DNA test to find out if he had more Cherokee blood than Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.).

Graham told "Fox & Friends" that he heard his grandmother was part Cherokee, so he would take the test and then reveal the results live on the show in a few weeks.

"You're going to find out in a couple weeks," Graham said. "I'm going to take this test … I'm taking it, and the results are going to be revealed here. This is my Trump moment. This is reality TV."

Graham quipped he was "dying to know."

Warren drew mockery from conservatives after a test's analysis released Monday showed her Native American ancestor could go back as many as 10 generations and thus make her as as little as 1/1,024th Native American.

"I think I can beat her," Graham said.

Heitkamp campaign identifies sexual-assault victims in ad without permission

The ad, which was in the form of an open letter, listed women who were victims of sexual assault or domestic violence, saying they were standing up to Rep. Kevin Cramer who downplayed accusations by Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, saying he forced himself on her more than three decades ago.

Mr. Cramer supported the president’s pick for the high court, while Ms. Heitkamp did not.

“We are here to let you know that we have all suffered from domestic violence, sexual assault, or rape — and that yes, we expect somebody to believe us when we say it. Because it happened,” the open letter to Mr. Cramer reads.

But Eve Lancaster, one of the 127 women listed on the bottom of the letter, took to Facebook to cry foul.

“To whom ever decided it was ok to put my name in this ‘open letter’ for the Bismarck Tribune and possibly other newspapers for this Heitkamp campaign for sexual harrassment, I am DISGUSTED. I did not give any sort of permission for you to put my name in this. I’m FURIOUS,” she posted on Monday evening.

Kady Miller, who is also listed on the letter, commented on Ms. Lancaster’s post saying she didn’t know how her name was on there either.

“I never commented about anything to do with domestic violence and I don’t even support Heidi Heitkamp!!” she posted.

According to the North Dakota GOP, at least four women have come forward complaining about their names being listed.

IIRC that was CH and Beasts making that point. It's a valid point thanks to the amazing benefit of the Kavanaugh hearings. I don't think anyone predicted how crazed and unhinged the Democrats would behave and in turn repel swing voters in the direction of the GOP in the magnitude that occurred.

At this point thanks to the Kavanaugh hearings I don't know if its even possible to gain an electoral bounce from an October Surprise related to Spygate.

Senate Security Staffer and Media Leaker James Wolfe Pleads Guilty To One Count of Lying to FBI Investigators….

I never realized that the population of Oceania had grown so. 1,000+ alumni clearly abandoning any semblance of the truth; Harvard caught with their pudding in the wringer; Fakajawea having the cigar blow up in her face; Stormy back to pulling $50 tricks to pay her legal expenses.

And through all of the the media and the Party look like complete and utter fools. Release that report Mr Mueller. C'mon!

The only thing that could top this is a couple of deep state indictments.

all we get are retirements, or like the staffer a token charge agreed to.

Derwill, I grant you it is complicated to off the charts levels, and probably widely and more deeply than anyone ever imagined. Probably including Trump.

But you are putting words in my mouth that I ever said "simply releasing the unredacted..." would accomplish what I want. I want nothing less than the restoration of Justice and the Rule of Law and the certainty that they both apply - with utter transparency - to everybody in time to be noticed and accepted just as envisioned in our founding documents.

If we cannot provide that, first and foremost and before all else, for our own citizens, then there is zero chance that we can demand that from allies or enemies abroad.

This has been my position since before Jan 20, 2017, expressed almost daily ad nauseum since :-), so arguing for some memo to be released last month is a trifle.

I.Don't.Care.if the Euros who cooperated with Obama in this are named . It's time the whole mess was exposed. I leave it to a far better strategist than I-DJT--to decide when,

As for Lindsey Graham he's dead wrong. In my eyes whoever did away with Kashoggi did us a favor. If it was Salman good for him. You cannot complain about Saudi support for terrorism and then cut them off when they are trying hard to staunch it.

This is important. Scroll don on this page of comments until you get to a video posts by duchess 01 which is title "Trump's 4 Triggers Which Are Panicking the Deep State." It is a well-reasoned explanation of hy the Dems have gone increasingly bonkers.

One thing this guy points out, which none of us brought up here, is that Rosenstein meeting on Air Force One means that he and the President were in the most secure SCIF there is. I think most of us were simply looking at it as a sign of approval.

If someone on a PC could grab that video and post the YouTube link here, that would be great. I really thnk this guys should be listened to and given some consideration. His name is Dr. Dave Janna. I have never heard of him before.

Clarice,
I have no sympathy for the Brits involved in this, but there are NATO considerations and other national security at risk if Britain perpetrated an acto of war on this country. I consider the overthrow of a duly elected president an act of war.

I don't care about Khashoggi, either, since he was obviously an enemy. He was a foreign national in a foreign country, and the Washington Post can stuff it.

We have to get enough information to stop this effort to divide th Saudis from us and Israel.

""A few pals of Brennan's in MI6 is a far cry from it being done with the approval and at the direction of the British government.""

Wrong.
