Why is Saudi Arabia buying so many high-dollar properties just outside of Washington DC

Conspiracy theorists will be in an uproar when they hear the latest coming out of the Kingdom. This time, the news about Saudi Arabia is hitting closer to home. Much closer.

Reports are coming in that the Saudis have purchased at least five adjacent properties in McLean, in Northern Virginia, barely a stone’s throw from the nation’s capital.

Saudi Arabia Scooping Up Land in Northern Virginia

https://freebeacon.com/national-security/saudi-arabia-scooping-land-northern-virginia/The kingdom paid $43 million on May 24 to purchase Steve Case‘s Merrywood Estate at 700 Chain Bridge Road, making it the biggest residential property sale in the region’s history. The county valued the property, which was also the childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, at just shy of $24 million.

Then on July 10, the embassy paid $17.8 million to purchase 670 Chain Bridge Road and $2.1 million to purchase 660 Chain Bridge Road in what appears to be a package deal, according to property records and an online listing.

My Take

I’m no conspiracy theorist, but I’ll admit this move is disconcerting. Saudi Arabia doesn’t do anything without a reason and the location definitely cannot be a coincidence. Not only is it close to DC, but it’s also an extremely exclusive area that’s safe from prying eyes.

If there’s anything nefarious in the works, this is the place where it could easily be staged. Saudi Arabia may be an important ally, but they’ve also had a history of contempt towards America and our way of life. We’ll keep a close eye on what’s happening here.

George Washington University students triggered by their mascot

George Washington University students triggered by their mascot

George Washington University is the home of the Colonials. You know, those people who came to America from Europe and eventually fought against the oppressive government of England in order to win independence for America. These heroes of the American Revolution are now being condemned by the students of George Washington University itself.

While the movement and attached petition haven’t reached a tipping point, the idea of changing the mascot to the “Hippo” is gaining momentum. Why? Well, we’ll let the students themselves tell you what they think.

This video by Campus Reform takes us into the wacky world of triggered college students who are so much in opposition of the people who made this country possible that they’d rather be named after the “river horse” of sub-Saharan Africa.

Trump to Acosta: ‘You have an agenda. You’re CNN. You’re fake news.’

Trump to Acosta You have an agenda Youre CNN Youre fake news

During President Trump’s press conference announcing his declaration of a national emergency, CNN’s Jim Acosta asked whether the President was concocting the national emergency in order to build his border wall because he couldn’t get it done through Congress. The President responded in standard fashion, attacking Acosta’s question itself as biased.

“You have an agenda. You’re CNN. You’re fake news,” the President said to the reporter.

Acosta has been at the center of controversy throughout President Trump’s term, tussling with members of the administration and the President himself at times. He lost access to the White House in November, 2018, after an altercation with a White House staffer.

This time, the President answered Acosta’s question about whether or not the emergency was manufactured by telling him to ask the Angel moms sitting in the front row if they thought the emergency was manufactured. Acosta did not.

President declares national emergency. Now the craziness begins.

President declares national emergency Now the craziness begins

As expected, President Trump signed the omnibus to keep the government from a second shutdown. Then, as expected, he declared a national emergency at the southern border to allow his administration to free up funds for the building of a wall at our southern border.

Now, the expectations shift to how Democrats will attack this move. During his announcement of the national emergency, the President noted he’s aware of how the process is going to go: lawsuits, appeals, more lawsuits, more appeals… and eventually it will be decided by the Supreme Court.

Reactions on social media were mixed.

My Take

From here, it goes insane. It should be noted the President made what many are considering a mistake when he said he “didn’t have to” declare an emergency but wanted the wall built faster. That seems like grounds to attack the declaration itself.
