If the description of the world is as Q says … [I know, big if…]
Well, according to Q, the cabal has 3 financial legs, the pre-bin Salman regime, and 2 others. And last autumn, the Saudi leg, according to that model, was amputated when bin Salman rounded up various Princes/Cousins and extracted some of their wealth and become the most powerful person in Saudi Arabia, and supposedly started to move Saudi in a less Wahabi-favouring direction. A win for Q and his associates. A loss for the cabal. Part of … The Plan. I see the fuss about Khashoggi as being push back by the cabal. As many people have pointed out, no-one gives much of a damn when Saudi Arabia beheads miscellaneous people for acts we wouldn't regard as crimes, or when they cause many deaths in Yemen.
So I am experimentally seeing this as push-back by the cabal. And who is kicking up the biggest fuss, and what do they want? I've head US Democrat Senators [more likely to be part of the cabal?] saying how shocking it is and how action must follow. And just this morning some talking head on the So-Called BBC was saying that the "right thing to do" would be for bin Salman to be step down or be overthrown, to be replaced by another Crown Prince. And Trump (anti-cabal) seems to be offering a way out for the Saudis - "accidental death during questioning…"
Edited to add: From this point of view, Pompeo's visit to Saudi is probably an exercise in how to maximise damage-limitation, rather than a "quest for the truth".
Don't loose that slip!
He's been stopped by the Dems and Rinos so far but if he wins big in the mid terms he will build the wall.
As for the situation now another caravan of people this time from Honduras I think are on a march to the US border.
