    Saudi Arabia has noticed Canada’s booming oil and gas industry — and they don’t like what they see. You could even say they’re scared. That’s the panicky message in a 14-page memo written to Saudi Arabia’s energy ministry by Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, an influential member of the Saudi royal family. He desperately warns them that Saudi Arabia’s energy dominance is at risk, including from oil and gas developments in western democracies. And he mentions Canada by name. Al-Waleed isn’t just another pundit or oil-rich Arab sheikh. He’s an international tycoon who has built a vast empire of holdings, including...

Thanks to the Healthcare.gov debacle, polls find support for the president among women and independents has dropped to the lowest ebb of his presidency. Obama's words -- promising Americans they could keep their doctors under his health care plan -- didn’t match his deeds.

    DUBAI (Reuters) - Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal says he will not sell any of his shares in microblogging site Twitter Inc when it goes public, and expects the firm's IPO to hit the market later this year or in early 2014. The prince, a nephew of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah and owner of international investment firm Kingdom Holding, invested $300 million in the social media giant in late 2011. "Clearly the speed they're moving with shows that they would like to IPO sooner than later. I believe it will happen either this year or early next year," Alwaleed...

    A Saudi woman who married a man thinking he was Saudi discovered he is Yemeni 18 years after their marriage. Jawahir said the man proposed to her 18 years ago and she accepted him as a husband after he produced false documents showing he was a Saudi citizen. When their two sons and one daughter went to the secondary school, they were asked to bring their father’s national identity number. “Only then I found that the man with whom I spent 18 years as a wife was not Saudi. I discovered that he had used a fake ID when he...

    Syrian government troops battled al-Qaida-linked rebels over a regime-held Christian village in western Syria for the second day Thursday... The rebels launched the assault on the ancient Christian village of Maaloula — which is on a UNESCO list of tentative world heritage sites — on Wednesday after an al-Nusra fighter blew himself up at a regime checkpoint at the entrance to the mountain village. The four-decade iron rule of the Assad family over Syria long has rested on support from the country's ethnic and religious minorities, including Christians, Shiite Muslims and Kurds. The Assad family and key regime figures are...

    The White House pushed forward aggressively on Monday for Congressional approval of an attack on Syria as President Obama got tentative support from one of his most hawkish Republican critics, Senator John McCain of Arizona, for a “limited” strike — as long, Mr. McCain said, as the president did more to arm the Syrian opposition. After an hourlong meeting with Mr. Obama at the White House, Mr. McCain emerged with Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, to say that the two senators’ discussions with Mr. Obama in the Oval Office had been “encouraging.” He also urged Congress to support...

    …From its inception in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood has been the subject of persecution due to its commitment to a single goal —transitioning the world into an Islamic empire. ..The Muslim Brotherhood saw its gains as “one small step” for Islam and “one giant leap” for Muslimkind. Not content with small successful steps, it moved to take a giant leap in Egypt. ...Morsi was the Muslim Brotherhood’s “poster boy,” coming to office because the Brotherhood was the only domestic organization with the infrastructure in place to support a candidate.…What the Muslim Brotherhood had planned for Egypt extended far beyond those...

    Let's face facts people. Obama and his evil ilk know exactly what they're doing. We've heard, unequivocally, that if the US bombs Syria, Syria will attack Israel. This is the end goal for Obama. This is his way of destroying Israel without any direct attack. A big question is, where are ANY of the conservatives, in power, defending us? I know Ted has said something and Rand but, really...where's the rest of them?

    Yesterday the Telegraph's Evans-Pritchard [8] dug up a note that we had posted almost a month [9]ago, relating to the "secret" meeting between Saudi Arabia and Russia, in which Saudi's influential intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan met with Putin and regaled him with gifts, including a multi-billion arms deal and a promise that Saudi is "ready to help Moscow play a bigger role in the Middle East at a time when the United States is disengaging from the region", if only Putin would agree to give up his alliance with Syria's al-Assad and let Syria take over, ostensibly...
