(OUT)HOUSE OF SAUD CLIPS WINGS OF "RELIGIOUS POLICE"

ON THE MENU?: (OUT)HOUSE OF SAUD CLIPS WINGS OF “RELIGIOUS ...

Well, it now seems clear that the (out)house of Saud is 'on the menu," for many of you are sending me versions of a story that indicates the Saudi royals have taken steps to "clip the wings" of the so-called "religious police" in that blighted land:

Saudi Arabia clips religious police's powers and orders them to be 'gentle and humane'

Here's the details of this "humane" announcement:

The ultra-conservative kingdom of Saudi Arabia has reined in its religious police, stripping their arresting powers and ordering them to be "gentle and humane" while imposing the Islamic code. The much-feared morality police's powers were clipped in an unexpected move by Riyadh under a new structure put in place.

The duty of the religious force, formally known as Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, will henceforth be limited to promoting Islamic values. Also, they are not allowed to demand even identification documents from the public.

The Saudi cabinet has also instructed Mutawas, the Islamic police, that arresting powers only rest with police or drug enforcement authorities. Saudi Arabia has about 5,000 such officers, who are also called Haia.

Mutawas, till now, were empowered to intervene in cases involving "mingling between the sexes" or if women were not dressed according to Islamic convention. The forces are as frequently feared as they are ridiculed for their excessive force. The members of the force also patrol during the Islamic prayer times to ensure that all the shops across the kingdom are shut.

I suspect that an announcement of this manner is somewhat akin to the Gestapo ordering its agents to be "more humane," after all, even Heinrich Himmler was appalled by the inhumanity of the mass shootings being perpetrated inside the Soviet Union, and hence ordered that a "more humane" way of genocide be developed; in stepped I.G. Farben and Zyklon B, and voila, we got the death camps.

But what's really going on here? There's no doubt in my mind that the pending release of documents regarding the "alleged" Saudi role in 9/11 has a great deal to do with it, as does President Obama's recent interview with The Atlantic Monthly in which he sent a clear message to the Saudis, and questioned the whole need and necessity for the US-Saudi "special relationship" which has been a cornerstone of American foreign policy since the days of Franklin Roosevelt. I've been arguing that all of these stories are signals that a deep geopolitical paradigm shift is underway within the West's power elite, or "Anglosphere" as our friends at The Daily Bell like to call it. What's the nature of that paradigm shift?

The Goal of American foreign pollicy has not changed: it has been to dominate the region of central Asia and its energy reserves, and simultaneously deny Russian and Chinese influence in that region. The problem has now become however, difficult if not intractable, since the populations of western nations are increasingly questioning the whole imperial venture in that region, and support for "the war on terror" is waning even as a clash of civilizations looms, and for which - at least in Europe - there is growing recognition that Islam just doesn't mesh very well with European culture.

So, again, what's going on? I suggest that the deal with Iran, and now Mr. Obama's statements to The Atlantic Monthly, are a profound clue that "humane values and societies" will become the new mantra for western adventures in that region. Mr. Obama, recall, told the Saudis that they had to learn to "Share" the region, a clear indication that the Saudis would have to stop repressing Shia Muslims. But what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, and having opened the door of dialogue with Tehran, the same message coule eventually be addressed in reverse.

And hovering still further in the background is the recent joint statement by Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and Pope Francis, addressing the murder of Christians in the region. I suspect the Anglosphere has (finally) woken up from its slumber, and realizes that by ignoring this issue, it has ignored a potential "wedge" issue allowing them to play it as a card for interventionist policies in the region. Time will tell...

...but in the meantime, this change of policy by the (out)house of Saud indicates that they're paying attention, and getting very nervous. And the problem is, of course, that mere window dressing "ain't gonna cut it."

See you on the flip side...

  1. When we talk about the Saudi-Bush connection we should really be saying Saudi-Fascist International connection.

    Am kind of surprised at the amount of debate regarding whether Dr Farrell acknowledges the Israeli’s role in whatever.

    Hey People; he’s commented at length, numerous times, professing his belief in cosmic level conflict. Ancient conflicts. Off-planet conflicts. His universal world view goes so far beyond Israeli’s, the Mossad and even wolves in Israeli clothing.

    If I was pressed on the subject of origin, I would say that Dr Farrell is a descendant of a long surviving bloodline that escaped the catastrophe of Mars.
    I’m just sayin’

    1. 8thdegreeofj, your ‘case’ reminds me of the UFO controversy. Talk to someone, and they will readily-agree that life exists somewhere in the universe. That is a safe, fallback position. But, press them further on whether we are being visited here and now, and they start sweating. Unsafe, and open to ridicule…

      Ancient conflicts versus Here-and-Now conflicts has the same ‘removed’ versus ‘immediate’ safeness…

  2. funny how none of us have broken our matrix training enough to openly acknowledge that the saudi’s and israel are two sides of the same coin. a kind of bad cop bad cop combo.

    1. ZDB, there are those of us who throw-in phrases like ‘really, their handlers’. There are visible handlers, like the Roths. There may be invisible handlers, and the sky’s the limit on that… (grin)

  3. Consider the possibility that those in power in the USA are anticipating something they fear and they are using this time of throwing the Saudi “allies” under the bus as an ongoing distraction …and as a lightning rod for the generalised anger expected to rise at an ever increasing pitch amongst the USA’s citizenry.

    Mr Global speaks to a friend: “Let the US hordes look on the Saudis with tunnel=vision whilst we continue our grand enslavement.”

  4. Goshawks, mayhap because Basta tips off the rest of us or at least voices common thought on this site. But he’s anonymous. As are you. Farrell could likely be found/traced. It’s where my mind is atm. I have constant arguments with my husband on this, and the nature of Farrell’s info. I read as much for the comments as the formal posts.

      1. Whoops, not reporting, replying to Zendogbreath by putting my comment in to the context it was written (and accidentally hitting the report button- too easy- that could well be the reason you get moderated indeed. Irony and instant karma, what fun! Forget the context I wrote my comment- this is why (I believe) you get so routinely modded Goshawks);

        goshawks says:

        basta, how do you get Comments like this through the ‘system’? If I said what you just said, I would be ‘modded’ for days (grin).

        “Your comment is awaiting moderation.” basta, how do you get it through? goshawks – April 20, 2016 at 3:05 am.

  5. as so many have already stated (mostly not on this website) once most countries in the Middle East (with the exeption of Israel, of course), have been destroyed, if things continue the way they have been, the last country to be picked off and destroyed will be Saudi Arabia; too bad the Saudis don’t understand that concept yet; they will be the last domino to fall;

    New World Order?- it’s for real and it “aint pretty”-

    Larry

    1. starting to look like the ME’s been set up by the colonizers from the start and for decades at least to be burned to the ground after rape and plunder. seems we’re assuming the saudi’s do not understand this. wondering what makes you think they don’t? looks pretty certain the saudi’s won’t suffer from collapse and the new world order. their slave subjects probably will. how much with the outhouse suffer though?

    1. sjy,
      this article is as convincing as that passport that fluttered to the ground at groundzero. remember? that passport one of the hijackers had that survived the flaming ball of aircraft and collapsing atomized buildings that destroyed the indestructable flight recorders? yeh right that passport. the passport that survived all that, then fluttered to the ground to be found unscathed at just the right time by just the right fbi agent

  6. please see zdb’s comment on doc’s ny times article that came out with this one.

    it smells more and more like a redux of france and greece in the ussa sooner rather than later

    and probably mostly blamed on saudi averice, greed, vengeance and any other not nice thang that can justify some crazy despotism at home and abroad to rile up joe sixpack’s support for being sheered.

    1. alright, that was too lazy on my part
      here’s the comment from doc’s other article
      sorry if it’s out of order daniel and doc

      It pays to be well informed and have a memory.
      maybe.

      there’s nothing new in all these headlines and stories on saudis connected with this or threatening that. the mainstream is just now coming public and accepting as fact a bunch of psyop arguement micheal moore laid out in farhenheit 911

      years ago.

      facts that were officially laid out as gofla political slandering. and they’re all facts that mean nothing in light of the ridiculousness of the premise of 19 moslem suicidenicks slipping through the toughest system…
      james corbett’s video on conspiracy put the sense to that ridiculousness even though that’s officially less accepted that michael moores obvious truths were over a decade ago

      so what’s to be learned here is more understanding the timing and who’s changing directions here
      and how
      so it’s to be a financial and energy crash blamed on a crazy hostile ME country that makes cashless more centralized banking with a permanent emergency fearless leader in charge?

      is this sounding like a hebdoe bataclan redux?

  7. I do find it interesting that all the House of Saud bashing started after they murdered (decapitated) a senior Shia cleric – Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Nimr. Now, whether some senior Westerners finally woke-up to who they were supporting or this is yet-another ‘wedge’ issue to be cynically-used, the spiderweb has been shaken and ‘everyone’ is jumping on the bandwagon.

    My money is on the latter, since Saudi Arabia is one of the last ‘intact’ Arab nations. A certain rogue Middle East nation may have them marked as next to be disrupted. “By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War…”

  8. I wonder what words the Prez is going to use tomorrow when he “visits” the white knights. The Saudis are a family of guys who used to ride camels and live in the desert in tents, but their way of life is now one of murder and madness. Let’s just hope Obama will tell them it’s 2016, and their way of life is going the way of the Dodo bird.

    1. From Amazon.com…. I think we all need to read Dr. Farrell’s next book (I am waiting for my copy)

      Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery: The Fascist International, 9/11, and Penetrated Operations Paperback – June 14, 2016
      by Joseph P. Farrell (Author)

      Pursuing his investigations of high financial fraud, international banking, hidden systems of finance, black budgets and breakaway civilizations, author and researcher Joseph P. Farrell investigates the theory that there were not two levels to the 9/11 event, but three. He says that the twin towers were downed by the force of an exotic energy weapon, one similar to the Tesla energy weapon suggested by Dr. Judy Wood, and ties together the tangled web of missing money, secret technology and involvement of portions of the Saudi royal family. Farrell unravels the many layers behind the 9-11 attack, layers that include the Deutschebank, the Bush family, the German industrialist Carl Duisberg, Saudi Arabian princes and the energy weapons developed by Nikola Tesla before WWII. It is Farrell at his best―uncovering the massive financial fraud, special operations and hidden technology of the breakaway civilization.Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery

      1. Thanks very much for posing this, and I’m happy to say that I stand corrected and that my prior post was dead wrong as to Joseph’s intentions with these Saudi posts; he seems to be laying out teasers for the themes this new book.

        1. basta: “If you are going to set yourself up as an alternative geopolitical analyst, well then the first thing you have to do is acknowledge that there is indeed a ME country called Israel, and secondly that there is a potent supranational ideology affecting world affairs called Zionism. And third, you have to deal in frank terms with 911, its motives and its real players and their motives. All the rest is window dressing…”

          It will be interesting to see whether Joseph’s new book addresses your excellent criteria for a ‘alternative geopolitical analyst’. I did not read anything about this in the Amazon.com description. Israel? Zionism? (Rothschilds?) We shall see…

  9. The Saudis are the Lee Harvey Oswald of 911.

    This latest installment just shows that the ZioCons are moving forward apace and that everything’s going according to plan to throw the Saudis under the 911 bus.

    Seriously Joseph, isn’t it high time to address 911 fully and truthfully? To lay out who really did it and why, and give this whole outhouse shtick a rest?

    I find it truly staggering and very compromising that you are willing to — condone? pretend to believe? actually believe? — the ridiculous proposition that the Saudis are the real 911 perps.

    1. I concur Basta and I truly appreciate you carrying on the good fight as the cancer of censorship, lies and obfuscation has spread so perniciously into alternative internet research. It seems so obvious that this is a neo-con shakedown of the Saudis. I suspect the saudis are being coerced into keeping oil production at maximum capacity in order to keep global oil prices at a punishing level for the Russian economy. The hope is to either destroy the Russian economy or in the least, do enough damage to ensure a western puppet can take control of the Kremlin in the 2018 elections. My second guess would be the Saudis and the Turks are being pressured into a full scale invasion of Syria, which, contrary to the blather from western mainstream and internet propaganda outlets, is something neither nation is in a hurry to do because 1) wars are expensive 2) wars are destructive 3) wars have unintended consequences 4) because only the west benefits from a full scale middle eastern war and 5) it puts both countries at odds with Russia.

      I think the zionist have taken their chutzpah to a whole new level with these threats of releasing the 28 pages and thereby opening up the Saudis to a crushing civil lawsuits from the 9/11 victims. Whatever happened to direct military retaliation for acts of war? I recall the Japanese attacked the US and we demolished their empire. Saudi threats of financial retaliation should be met with American threats of total destruction of their nation and the seizure of all their assets. Of course Basta, you and I know the Saudis are just another layer of patsies and the real perpetrators of this crime need to be loudly and bravely exposed by every righteous human being aware of their complicity. May the true perpetrators of 9/11 one day feel the full wrath of American vengeance in the same fashion as the Japanese. May we one day also live see the cowards and liars who facility this act of tremendous treachery paraded through the streets like the shaven headed French concubines who prostituted themselves to the nazi occupiers for safety and comfort.

        again guys please take a look at my comment on doc’s note about ny times piling on saudi’s

        it’s clearly not going to clear up. layers of the psyops are being peeled as mr global finds convenient to justify his next directional change to bring further chaos

        rb and basta as ever, you’re on it more than i wanna be
        thank you all

      2. btw,
        this is the first i considered that doc was not aware of the inanity of believing any published theory on 911, let alone a chapter or two of our lovely ussa govt theory.

        michael ruppert’s long involved theories are probably the most believable and even he has to be suspect – all due respect to the likes of michael and gary webb and others

        thank you again
        zdb

        1. Frankly I find this whole outhouse meme very disturbing. If you are going to set yourself up as an alternative geopolitical analyst, well then the first thing you have to do is acklowlege that there is indeed a ME country called Israel, and secondly that there is a potent supranational ideology affecting world affairs called Zionism. And third, you have to deal in frank terms with 911, its motives and its real players and their motives. All the rest is window dressing, and without this perspective, “analysis” remains on the level of that proffered by the good folks at CNN and Yahoo! News, or the creepily Orwellian NWO bobbleheads on Morning Joe.

        2. ZDB,
          I read Michael Ruppert’s book, Crossing the Rubicon. He had some very good research. One of his main drawbacks, IMO, was his failure to realize oil is abiotic.
          I used to go to his site: From the wildnerness regularly.

          1. dangit rb, i hit report a comment again instead of reply

            daniel, can you move report comment a little further away from reply?

            wow, i sound like my grandparents

            so rb. word. there’s a whole contingent of folk sharp enough to see the mess but not sharp enough to see abiotics and now even tesla and electric universe theory. yep as genius and dmitry orlov is, he still hasn’t copped to pooched geoengineering nor abiotic oil. strange doings from one so russian.

            basta, i gotta agree with you and at the same time figure doc’s working against being labeled anti-semitic and shut down ala mel gibson style. which gets me wondering if that isn’t something to do with some of the awaiting modulation signs around here. i have a hard time arguing with what you wrote. my only question is i think doc hardly needs to rant against zionism for my sake. perhaps i’m imagining but i got the impression he’s got a fair idea what the latest home to apartheid is all about. as far as it goes, israel seems just another layer in all these conspiracy theories. as ever it seems it comes back to the most wealthy and powerful people covertly attacking the rest of humanity here there and everywhere in some form of coordinated scheme. curious how their tactics indicate their strategies which indicate their goals. curious to know what those goals are and how to best use their own efforts to make ourselves safer.

    2. Basta — I never recall Joseph ever saying he thought the Saudi’s are the “real 911 perps.” I haven’t received a copy of his newest book (anxiously hatching the mailbox on this!), but I highly suspect that THIS is the book he has been setting up to write ever since the event in 2001.

      So, be patient and please give him the benefit of the doubt. I feel certain he will go into DEEP analysis of that event in his new book, and I doubt he will lay it at the feet of the Saudi’s, per se.

      He is merely pointing out that there DOES seem to be a “sea change” of Washington support for Saudi Arabia, or at very least visible signs of strain or schism. All to be revealed, I’m sure…

    3. basta, how do you get Comments like this through the ‘system’? If I said what you just said, I would be ‘modded’ for days (grin).

      Seriously, I am curious about Joseph’s ‘stance’ on the Saudis and 911. Your analogy of the House of Saud to Oswald is brilliant (and unfortunately, is true). That Joseph chooses not to see this is interesting in itself…

      1. gosh,
        i’ve hit report comment in error a couple times this month while trying to reply. you’re one of the most replied to commenters here. i wonder if someone hasn’t hit report comment on you enough that you’re getting beat up like a troll should be beat.

  10. I just think people put to much stock into/give credit to the puppets known as Obama/Merkel/Hollande, etc. (list is long)- we simply must realize there is/has to be a hidden hand controlling all of this-

    Larry in Germany

  11. This is either window dressing or the Saudis are reading their horoscopes and the signs are not good. It’s so bad even Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert is reporting their bad press.
