King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz has sacked prince Moteib Bin Abdullah, Minister of the National Guard from his post on Saturday through a Royal order.Prince Khalid bin Ayyaf has been appointed as minister for the National Guard.A second Royal Order was issued to relieve Minister of Economy and Planning, Adel al-Faqieh, from his duties, and the appointment of Mohammed Al Tuwaijri as Minister of Economy and Planning.
LONDON — Saudi Arabia announced the arrest on Saturday night of the prominent billionaire investor Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, plus at least 10 other princes, four ministers and tens of former ministers.The announcement of the arrests was made over Al Arabiya, the Saudi-owned satellite network whose broadcasts are officially approved.The sweeping campaign of arrests appears to be the latest move to consolidate the power of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the favorite son and top adviser of King Salman.The king had decreed the creation of a powerful new anticorruption committee, headed by the crown prince, only hours before the committee ordered the arrests.Al Arabiya said that the anticorruption committee has the right to investigate, arrest, ban from travel or freeze the assets of anyone it deems corrupt.
WOW. History in the making folks. And it was all waiting for a President that could backstop them during their reforms, who wasn't a Political Islamicist Sympathizer or Neoliberal, but a man of business.
The blogger Raif Badawi, for example, has been in prison since 2012 despite an international effort to free him
Might want to hold off on yet another celebration until you see what exactly unfolds in the line of "reforms". The only real reform right now seems to be a quick consolidation of power into one person's hands and a go along with Washington to some degree to marginalize Iran somewhat. Be careful what you wish for on this one, they are playing footsie with the Russians as well concerning arms etc. and we may find ourselves on the short end of the stick once again.
Look how far we’ve comeTrumpcucks embracing Moderate Islam
errc saysLook how far we’ve comeTrumpcucks embracing Moderate IslamLook how far we've come. Leftists who had no problem with Saudi Arabia's big donations to Obama and Hillary and the Clinton Foundation, it now cuts no ice with them to see Women Driving and their detractors arrested, long time Wahabi symps and even Princes being sacked, calls for restoring Moderate Islam, and sports events open to women, too. Just in the past few weeks after the Orb of Covfefe meeting and the announcement by the Crown Prince.What next? Calling Donna Brazille a liar? I thought she dindu nuttin'?I continue to be amazed in 2017, watching the Democrats turn into the Party that hates the working class, spews "never again!" McCarthyism, it's biggest donors are sexpest sleezeballs, a Senator up on corruption charges and accused of sleeping with underage girls, etc. etc.Please run Kamala Harris in 2020.

Looks like our hold on the Saudis is increasing. Nothing like destroying the mother of all terrorism from the inside.
I have a very bad feeling about the next King in the making here. Again, like Trump, I hope to be proven wrong, but I do not think the 2030 plan, or women driving, is anything but breadcrumbs. There isn't going to be a major shift toward a more egalitarian society here. I think there will, however, be new power dynamics and a much more active Saudi presence.
Strategist saysLooks like our hold on the Saudis is increasing. Nothing like destroying the mother of all terrorism from the inside."Our hold"? If you mean power is being concentrated into a single individual, who is an extremely savy politician, and ruthless enough to oust and imprison foes, to cement central rule ... is a "hold" ... surrrreeeee ... Trump is more like kitten MbS blew his nose on, comparatively.
