Interesting development

"I can confirm to you that Saad Hariri is indeed held against his will: although Western governments are covering it up" (Angry Arab).  What's important is that the Saudi kidnappers haven't fooled one person in Lebanon.  Also:  "The shoddy journalism of the Economist magazine: how I miss the old Economist and former correspondents".

"Saad Hariri gives awkward new interview that many believe was staged" (Garrie).

"Interview With Rania Masri On Saudi Arabia And Kidnapping Of Lebanese Prime Minister" (Gosztola).

"Algerian PM: $130 billion was spent to destroy Syria, Libya, Yemen by Arab states".

"Art of the Deal: Behind Saudi-Lebanon Crisis Is Trump’s Middle East ‘Peace Project’" (Henningsen).  I like how Israel is already trying to put all the blame on the Saudis.

"Trump holds the line on foreign policy" (Bhadrakumar).  MAGA except, of course, for the Middle East.

"Mocking Trump Doesn’t Prove Russia’s Guilt" (McGovern).  The whole unlikely scenario is entirely the creation of Brennan.

From the ultra-icky Ioffe:  "The Secret Correspondence Between Donald Trump Jr. and WikiLeaks".  Not much to the story but note all the spin.

"UK prosecutors admit destroying key emails in Julian Assange case" (I can't think of a non-criminal reason for them ever destroying any electronic material):
"Adding to the intrigue, it emerged the [Crown Prosecution Service] lawyer involved had, unaccountably, advised the Swedes in 2010 or 2011 not to visit London to interview Assange. An interview at that time could have prevented the long-running embassy standoff."

"Source Code For CIA’s Spying Tool Hive Released By Wikileaks: Vault 8" (topical as Kaspersky is being blamed for everything):
"In an interesting development, it was also found that CIA also wrote code to impersonate Kaspersky Labs antivirus company and build fake certificate."

"The reality of neo-Nazis in Ukraine is far from Kremlin propaganda".

"Priti Patel and Jewish Conspiracies" (Atzmon):
 "According to the [Campaign Against Anti-Semitism], X is not guilty of committing Y as long as X is stereotypically associated with committing Y. If X is guilty, for instance,  of shoving a banana into someone’s eye (Y), the  defence would be that shoving bananas into other people’s eyes (Y) is one of the stereotypes about X.

Similarly, the CAA claims it is anti-Semitic to refer to the Jewish Lobby as the strongest lobby in Westminster because the accusation is consistent with the Jewish stereotype of Jewish lobbies being influential. Likewise we should vindicate Harvey Weinstein of any wrong doing because Larry David admitted on Saturday Night Live that predatory behaviour has become a Jewish stereotype. I expect Bernie Madoff to capitalise on this line of defence and appeal for his immediate release. Alan Dershowitz can also come clean about his bad habits by blaming them on Jewish stereotypes.   

The paradox here is obvious, The CAA’s circular argument has nothing to do with any consideration of ethics, truthfulness or correspondence with reality. The ‘stereotype’ redeems the sin. By this logic the CAA itself is innocent of any wrong thinking because such a Jerusalemite anti-ethical intellectual pattern is also a Jerusalemite stereotype. "

"Blind Item #10 - Bohemian Grove Blind" (CDaN).  The guesses at AGC Blind Itam Rehash (links removed):
"John Clifton Hinson Republican U.S. Representative for Mississippi's 4th congressional district from 1979 to 1981; Stewart McKinney/Fourth congressional district of Connecticut in the House of Representatives from 1971 until his death from AIDS in Washington, D.C. in 1987"

"Today's Blind Items - Child Porn And Drugs - The Story Of Two A Listers" (CDaN).  The guesses at AGC Blind Itam Rehash (links removed):
"Show: "Kids Incorporated"
A lister #1: Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson (1984 - 1989)
Different corner of the entertainment world: Wild Orchid (band)
A lister #2: Jennifer Love Hewitt  (1989 - 1991) (at the age of 12, Meldac funded the recording of Hewitt's debut studio album, Love Songs (1992).[60] The album was released exclusively in Japan, where Hewitt became a pop star)
Producer: Tommy Lynch/"Tom Lynch Company" (previously Lynch Entertainment which is owned by Lynch Pictures"
"Blind Item #1 - He Made Millions From Raping Young Girls - Himmmm".  Himmmm is a big source of Hollywood blind items, rumored to be Hugh Jackman.  The guesses at AGC Blind Itam Rehash (links removed):
