For many months I've suspected that the (out)house of Saud is "on the menu", but in the wake of the "coup" in Turkey, the question may really be whose menu the (out)house is on. There is the very real possibility, as some readers here have suggested in their commentary, or in their private emails, that Sultan Erdogan was alerted to the pending coup by Russia, and has seized upon it as a crisis of opportunity to purge Turkey of opposition, and to take it along a rather different path of Islamicization than we have hitherto seen, rejecting the heritage of Attaturk, and returning to its Sufi roots. There is, indeed, reason to conclude this, for Erdogan's sudden and sweeping foreign policy reversals of the last few weekes, opening the door to normalized relations with Syria, restoring relations with Israel, and most importantly, apologizing to Russia for the downing of a Russia fighter last year and offering full compensation to the victim's family, are an indicator that Erdogan has broken the alliance with the Saudis in Syria.

Now, according to this article that many have shared with me, the US State Department is alerting Americans in Saudi Arabia:

State Department Warns Americans Of "Potential, Imminent Threat" In Saudi Arabia

While the article is worth reading, I want to focus your attention on the beginning paragraphs, for they form the grist for the mill of today's "high octane speculation":

State Department Warns Americans Of "Potential, Imminent Threat" In Saudi Arabia | Zero Hedge

Back in April, the US quietly warned citizens of "credible threats" to tourist areas in Turkey, particularly in Istanbul and the southern resort city of Antalya. In retrospect, one historic suicide bombing at the local airport, and one failed and/or staged coup later, the warning had been spot on. Which is why while traditionally official warnings of upcoming threats to US citizens around the globe have been generally ignored, this time it may be prudent to pay attention.

Moments ago, the US State Department warned Americans in Saudi Arabia about a “potential, imminent threat against U.S. citizens” Wednesday and urged to travel with caution. The agency tweeted out a brief statement titled “Reports of a potential imminent threat” in Jeddah.

So what's the big deal? Where's the room for high octane speculation here?

For one thing, the admission that the US was warning American citizens in Turkey is a strange admission to something that is now evident: it had advance knowledge of the coup (and may have been involved at some level in orchestrating it), and this means that at least two countries had advance knowledge, the USA, and Russia. Thus, the context suggests that perhaps a similar thing is in store for Saudi Arabia. One can, of course, rehearse all the reasons that this is highly unlikely: the Saudis possess an efficient intelligence service, and given the recent declassifications of the 9/11 commission document, certainly appear capable of mounting covert operations. Those documents make it abundantly clear that the (out)house of Saud is a major sponsor of terrorism, as has also a recent Rand corporation study. In the face of such realities, a coup attempt in the kingdom would appear unlikely. Thus, the State Department's warning concerns only the possibility for "run-of-the-mill" Wahhabi nuttiness and terrorism. No coup here, nothing to see, move along.

But if you've been following the (out)house closely lately, there are tensions within the royal house and over its current course. More significantly, the eastern portion of the kingdom, with its strong Shia presence, is also the oil producing region of the country. And Shia Islam would connect any potential underground networks to the Saudis' mortal enemy: Iran. Of course, a shia-led coup attempt would rip the kingdom apart, but it would put an end to Wahhabism, and cement Iran's role as leader of Shia terrorist networks covertly, and its public role as "regional stablizer" (which it is not).

Admittedly, this is such a bizarre speculation I hesitate to advance it, but given the suddenness of Mr. Erdogan's foreign policy about-face, his clear break with the Saudi agenda in the Middle East, his overtures to Russia, Syria, and Israel, indicate that something big is, indeed, "up". If the crosshairs are now on Riyadh, then that would certainly constitute "something big." Clearly, someone wants to remake the Middle East, and to stabilize the region. It does not take much imagination to see who that may be, and who might be willing to sponsor a coup in the (out)house, for with "silk road" agendas on the horizon, Moscow and Beijing would be looking at the (out)house of Saud with a skeptical and jaundiced eye. And they have an ally in Iran which, its own brazenness and mediaeval mullah kookiness notwithstanding, appears far more stable than Riyadh.

In short, maybe the State Department pulled back the curtain - just a little - on potential future developments. And who would weep for the (out)house? Few, if any.

See you on the flip side...

    “I’ve suspected that the (out)house of Saud is “on the menu”- not only you, Dr. Farrell and readers, but (horror of horrors!) David Icke as well- he has always stated the last middle eastern state to fall (on the plate of the globalists as a last domino) is Saudi Arabia-

    and if my read sources are correct (they always stand to correction) the Haus of of Saud is actually Jewish and not Moslem (I have nothing against normal Jews- they’re normal, loving people)-

    and as David Icke (horror of horrors!) has always stated: once the complicit Haus of Saud has fulfilled its purpose the globalists who bear no loyalties whatsoever still controlling the Haus of Saud will also eventually throw the Haus of Saud to the dogs/under a bus–

    be well all-

    Further to my ISIS is a placeholder for a puppet Kurdistan thesis, you have two articles interesting aritcles out today, one from Sputnik entitled:

    ‘Unresolved Kurdish Issue Remains Breeding Ground for a New Coup in Turkey’

    and another from a Neocon propagandist writing in Time magazine headed,

    “Why the Next President Must Regionalize Iraq’

    Apparently, Middle East Balkanization is “in the air.”

    It would be nice if somehow a fuse was lit that travelled all the way up the 9/11 chain of command; exploding along the way, blowing-up in the faces of the out-houses that orchestrated these false flags to topple democracies all across the globe. It would be spectacular if this said fuse were to continue exploding and finally reach those commanding heights of the secret oligarchies of global power and blow them sky-&^%*ing high!

      I’m looking for a symbolic scaffold; once the preserve of the sovereign right to kill, yet slowly acquired & appropriated by the masses as a way to express/show popular dessent. La guillotine became a symbolic mechanism turned back against corrupted power, that spectacle of violence that hallmarked the Ancien Regime. The guillotine was inverted that preserve of the sovereign right to kill for the masses’ vengeance and possible emancipation.

    One of the pressing concerns for the US is can the lid be kept on the fact that the CIA facilitated no-review visas for the alleged “terrorists” (patsies)involved in the 9/11 false flag op. Would elements within the Saudi inner circles try to blow the whistle on US backed terror ops while the house fell down around them? I would imagine that people highly connected enough to do so would be given safe passage with intact bank accounts while any coup progressed so as to buy their silence.

    This is the end of the first stage of redrawing the map of the Middle East, after that region was last divvied up a century ago at Versailles.

    The region’s nation states have been overthrown, invaded, destabilized or toppled, one after another. Step back and take a generational long view and you have a Ten Little Indians scenario going on: first there was the civil war in Lebanon, then the 911 false flag which led to Wesley Clark reporting on that arch NeoCon psycho nutjub, Donald Rumsfeld, and his infamous “seven wars in five years” memo from late September 2001, listing as targets “Iraq, Syria, Lebanon [again], Somalia, Sudan and finishing it off, Iran.”

    Well, it took longer than expected, with an Egypt wildcard and Saudis swapped out for Iran in the end, but Rummy’s Pentagram/PNAC memo pretty much sums up what’s been going down. How prescient.

    Turkey is in the second phase of attack; first you had the propaganda blitz of the corrupt wannabe Sultan, and now the failed coup has placed Erdogan on the defensive and destabilized the country and, in a word, has softened Turkey up for a real takedown.

    Currently, we’re deep in the intial propaganda blitz for the Saudis (who were our besties when we wanted their oil) and they are just about to enter the second phase of actual destabilization. — And they are following remarkably swiftly on the heels of Turkey. (Someone seems in quite a hurry, right now. It must be the giddiness of seeing the endgame draw near.)

    Eventually, you will see actual Balkanization of the ME now that this project draws to a close and all the region’s major nation-states have been crippled — save one, the spider at the center of the web, biding the time as the US does its bidding.

    Soon enough there will be calls for a Kurdish homeland to be carved from portions of Turkey and Syria, further weakening both donor states, and conveniently including a nice oil patch.

    This is what cinematic ISIS MacGuffin is being used for — it’s a placeholder — and why it is so important to let the situation simmer and never lose too much territory, until the time comes, after much “terror,” to justafiably sweep in to rout the barbaric boogeyman. And once that’s done, why golly, why not do something good for once, right a long-standing wrong and set up a (puppet) state of Kurdistan?

    This is why Netanyahu shuttled urgently to Russia in late winter, and why Russia suddenly halted its offensive soon after. A big deal was cut, on the one side old scores are being settled and on the other, long-range plans are coming to fruition.

    This Kurdistan is already being incubated, and of course the Voldemort of the ME has been co-opting and puppeteering the so-called Kurdish leaders, and as a nice aside has been making great deals on the contraband oil.

    Just a question of patience and having a long view (and controlling a well-armed bully who does your dirty work for you).

    • goshawks on July 26, 2016 at 7:10 pm

      basta, as always I enjoy your long-range viewpoint and your continually pointing-out (veiled) who is at the center of the web. Thanks. (I am amazed that this posting was not ‘disappeared’.)

      Yes, the master-shuffler has plans on the Sauds. Apparently, their time as ‘useful idiots’ has come almost to an end, and they are close to being thrown under the bus as so many other UIs have had happen…

      I have been keeping an eye on the approaching ‘amalgamation’ of Kurdistan. I am curious as to whether the background motivation is more ‘ordinary’ (oil, etc.), more Khazarian homeland re-establishment, or more ‘access’ to ancient Watcher territory. Perhaps a mix…

      • basta on July 27, 2016 at 2:35 am

        Thanks goshawks,

        It’s all pretty in-your-face and that’s why there’s so much chatter, denigration and disinfo being spewed about, to distract you from the obvious.

        BTW I overlooked Libya from Wesley Clark’s list, making a full seven, and should also have mentioned that an oil-rich portion of Iraq, where you now have ISIS incursions, will also become part of the Kurdistan puppet state.

        Of course oil is a big part of it (in GOD we trust = Guns, Oil and Drugs), and I don’t put much stock into the whole search for ancient tech meme, which seems to me so much Spielberg / Hollywood / Three Letter Agency disinfo and distraction. The reason you start a war is never to loot a museum. Please!

        The usefulness of a Kurdistan for the Zios is, obviously, foremost as a land grab and as a physical buffer (Golan on steriods), and with it comes power and influence by controlling a good hunk of neighboring territory.

        • sagat1 on July 27, 2016 at 5:09 am

          Very well put Basta. Like you said, all these other theories are simply put out there to attract the sci-fi fantasists who just gobble this stuff up. The obvious answer is simply to mundane for their wild imaginations.

          • goshawks on July 27, 2016 at 3:34 pm

            I used to think that way, too. Then, I read-up on Ba’al Bek, Puma Punku, Saksaywaman, etc. There is too much physical evidence available (to unshuttered minds) to discount ancient tech.

            Could more plebeian motives be primary? Sure. Could ancient tech also be factored in? I’d give fair odds…

          • basta on July 27, 2016 at 4:09 pm

            You misunderstand my point; I am not denying that there was an ancient high civilization; I’m quite aware of all those sites and others and fully agree that their stone remnants testify to the existence of a high Atlantean civilization, if you want to call it that.

            What I do not believe, and view as blatant misdirection and diversion, is the nonsense that there is some secret Indiana Jones hunt going on for fabulous ancient talismans in Mesopotamia (Iraq) and that that search by the occult masters behind TPTB was the real, secret reason that the ZioCons invaded that country after 911, and why the Bahgdad museum was looted.

            THAT is pure disinfo. It was all about oil and the Zio-PNAC agenda.

          • goshawks on July 27, 2016 at 6:40 pm

            basta, thank you for the clarification. I understand the disinfo aspect, and who may have started that meme. Camouflage.

            Still, for my part, I think there are René Belloqs out there (the Nazi-sympathizing French archaeologist who was IJ’s dark counterpart). Publicly, we will probably never know if his modern counterpart exists…

        • Pellevoisin on July 27, 2016 at 9:26 pm

          I think it is a mistake not to think that the Ahnenerbe is alive and well and continuing its work albeit under the camouflage of other flags and agencies and within the structures of the USA in particular.

          The looting of a museum seems to be a truly ridiculous reason for a war, but it certainly could have been part of a the larger calculation of intended goals so as to satisfy the faction ordering and engineering the warfare. From that Bush-Blair faction’s point of you it very well could have been part of the main reason for the invasion since they operate within an occult framework that would seem insane to any reasonable person outside of it..

        • Button on July 28, 2016 at 2:07 pm

          I always enjoy your analysis, Basta. I miss Frankie Calcutta’s extreme wit, but you do a grand job of carrying the torch.

          I too have always contended that the alternative research community is managed just like mainstream sources of information. Diversion and distraction is the order of the day. Most people in this community are already biased toward the extraordinary by necessity, so it’s quite easy to give them what they want.

          The basic postulate: an immeasurably wealthy, international elite exists whose collective goal is depopulation and enslavement of the masses through the monopolization of insuperable high technology, often in collusion with aliens. Pure X-Files.

          The contradictions: First, if this is truly the case as postulated above, what are these “elites” waiting on? Every further day removed from the realization of this goal is another opportunity for the hated “masses” to obtain the coveted secret of this wondrous technology. Second, if the technology is as miraculous as touted, why are slaves needed anyway? Why not exterminate all the “useless eaters” and be done with it (wouldn’t the air smell so much better)? Third, why all the politico-financial shenanigans and subterfuge if this technology is the answer to every problem currently besetting mankind – climate change, overpopulation, terrorism, etc – why not simply wave the technological wand? Fourth, why is oil even needed, thus making an “elite” funded war for oil revenue contradictory, wouldn’t this technology make them like the Federation of Planets and not need money (even derivatives)?

          It’s illogical.

          Instead, put the Zio-PNAC agenda into its much more ambitious perspective:

          “In Israel, the phrase “the Messia’s Donkey” can also refer to the controversial political-religious doctrine ascribed to the teachings of Avraham Yitzhak Kook which claims that secular Jews, which represent the material world, are an instrument in the hands of God whose purpose it was to establish the State of Israel and begin the process of redemption, but upon its establishment they would be required to step aside and allow the Religious-Haredi public to govern the state. According to this analogy, the secular Jewish public are the “donkey”, while the Religious-Haredi public who would take their place represent a collective quasi-Messianic body. A book called The Messiah’s Donkey, which focuses on this issue, was published in 1998 by Seffi Rachlevsky and caused widespread controversy among the Jewish-Israeli public; according to Hassidic teaching the donkey is a symbol of the fact that the Messiah and Messianic age will not oppose the material world, but rather harness it for sacred purposes.”

          – Wikipedia, “The Messiah’s Donkey”

          • goshawks on July 29, 2016 at 3:28 am

            Buttons, you make four separate levels into one statement. That’s what is illogical…

            1) an immeasurably wealthy, international elite exists – true. Search on Vitali, Glattfelder, and Battiston – “The Network of Global Corporate Control”

            2) whose collective goal is depopulation and enslavement of the masses – true. Search on “Georgia Guidestones”

            3) through the monopolization of insuperable high technology – true, although “insuperable” is a bit over the top. Search on “need to know” and “black budget”

            4) often in collusion with aliens – that is the one area that is up for grabs. The ridiculing of witnesses guarantees this result. That, and black-budget craft…

            So, I would characterize your multi-level obfuscation to be misguided at best…

            And yes, I believe the Zio-PNAC agenda to be huge and dangerous!

    • zendogbreath on July 27, 2016 at 12:29 am

      Looks like a simple enough property transfer. Whatever Russia’s paying is more than enough for the ussa to consider worthwhile. who’s arguing with russian tech lately? or their economic savvy? remember putin when the ruble got cut in half twice in what 3 months? think it was 1st qtr 2014. he didn’t just do something. he hurried up and stood there. and kept buying gold.

      he did the same in syria waiting just long enough for the zio cons in d.c. to show their colors before evicting their proxy boogeymen. i feel like butch and sundance looking out on the horizon repeatedly asking “who are those guys?” so who is it that’s behind putin? obviously it’s his turn and he’s taking responsibility for the outhouse as well as the sultan. and just in time too.

      the current glut of petrol on barges awaiting ussa consumption has prices down to $2/gal. much lower hurts even the freidmanite ziocons who never waste a good catastrophe. so a quick transition of s.a. to putin’s control gives the excuse to cut production and drive prices back up to profitable levels.

      for those who think m.e. apartheid is immune to such transitions – read up on civil war in israel coming. there’s more division than the usual brew put up by the overlords. oddly enough it smells like their plan is to take their puppet state down from the inside out rather than terrist attacks from the outside justifying religious ww3.

      given these turns of events, it’s starting to look like demagogues and false flag narratives might start unravelling a bit quicker and completer. i read today that local govt in nice is telling the fed anti-terrist french state to stuff it on the demands to destroy all video evidence of the 7/4/16 truckdrivingterrist attack.

      imagine that. the first false flag since 2001 where authorities didn’t simply destroy all evidence immediately.

    • Pellevoisin on July 27, 2016 at 9:18 pm

      The construction of Kurdistan as a nation state also further’s the aims of those who overthrew the crowned heads of Europe, broke up the Empires, overthrew the USSR, and are busy trying to place humanity in smaller more divided national units and boundaries.

      Creating Kurdistan will take territory from Iraq, Syria, Iran, and especially Turkey.

      I have wondered if a special deal was struck with Erdo-wan Erdogan with regard to the coup such that he would stop attacks on the Kurds and commit to ceding territory to the creation of Kurdistan. But there is a problem with creating Kurdistan in that many other different people live in those same areas. There are valleys, mountains, and regions that are entirely Kurdish, but they do not all speak precisely the same language, and religion varies widely among them.

      • goshawks on July 27, 2016 at 11:51 pm

        Pellevoisin, I had not thought about the ‘price’ that Russia required for the coup-info as including a Kurdistan segment of Turkey (whether or not it all becomes an official ‘nation’). That makes a certain amount of sense, especially with the Nety visit and the ‘spurning’ of the Sauds. Secret annexes to treaties and all that…

        (If this happens, I will be curious to see if the Sabians come back out of the shadows…)

  8. TonyM on July 26, 2016 at 8:24 am

    Also interesting that just as Turkey made overtures to Russia just before the coup – even apologising for it shooting down the Russian fighter, Latest reports indicate Saudi too is making similar overtures with Russia. Is this just a coincidence? – unlikely in my view.

  9. TonyM on July 26, 2016 at 8:20 am

    Yes, that’s my reading. The U.S. knows something is afoot with Saudi Arabia just as it did with Turkey before the coup and is issuing the same “Potential Imminent Threat” warning. About time Saudi was tackled as one the leading players in state sponsored Islamic terrorism worldwide. Just have to hope whatever is in the offing doesn’t backfire and strength regressive totalitarian forces in Saudi as in Turkey.
