Yep. And, quite frankly, I don't care about your college grades, but am interested in your judgments and values, which college grades don't tell me a thing about.

try this scenario...and actual answer it..honestly...

a bunch of former New Yorkers, who still have family in NY and even get money for those families in NY, are now members of a fanatical church in New Jersey, and are living in NJ, they travel all over the USA getting supplies/training/etc....then they bomb an abortion clinic in Pennsylvania ...are you going to blame the government of New York State...or would you blame the fanatical church in New Jersey??????

answer honestly.......

he was NOT an American jouralist , he was Saudi born of Turkish decent

Khashoggi was supportive of the muslim brotherhood (a extremist organization). In one of his own blogs he argued for the Muslim brotherhood, and wrote that “there can be no policy in any Arab country without accepting that extreme Islam is a part of it
Most of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi. I never said the country was behind it, only that extremism breeds there. And the Saudi government was and is not an ally, as it had plenty of dealings with OBL.

Kashoggi was US educated, lived there, 2 of his children were US citizens, he worked for the Washington Post... what exactly do you consider to be an American?

Your quote is taken out of context. He was against Islamic extremism and spent much of his life critical of it. His view was that countries couldn't ignore the threat, but also not ignore the circumstances that caused it or the grievances they had, as doing so would only lead to more violence.
But in any case, all you're doing here is excusing murder to protect Trump when he threw our own intelligence under the bus to agree with the Saudis in order to protect an arms sale. That's gross no matter what you think the circumstances were.

It won't be long until Trump is saying he was one of the Seven Blocks of Granite at Fordham.

He's stealing money from the Defense Dept and weakening our security. The wall does not keep our border secure and it never will. That money would be best spent on roads, bridges and other failing infrastructure that will benefit all and make life much easier. Also he's wasted money running around the country politicizing, playing golf and other bs crap costing millions of dollars in taxpayer money that could be well spent on education and other programs to benefit our citizens. Retail goods have risen dramatically, especially groceries at an inflationary 40% since he took office. When prices rise your dollar buying value shrinks.

Second, he simplified taxes for a large number of citizens. Wrong again, you'll be paying more to the IRS next year along with other tax increases. Only a few of his rich buddies will benefit. Also his program will also lessen your SS benefits when you retire.

Third, he's trying to do things to keep more jobs here. Wrong again, his tariff program is a disaster, hurting farmers, mom and pop businesses, many corporations who are laying off, and most job increases this past summer were kids getting entry summer jobs. He's the master of bankruptcies and has the US economy headed in that direction.

You forgot to mention his love for Putin and Kim and the way they run their communist countries. A traitor at best to our country, our troops and ruining our relationships with our allies. Of course his hate for women and anyone who is not a natural born white person. In bed with the NRA and the praise for his KKK supporters. Then his denial of "climate change" which has been proven over and over.
A president is suppose to be a leader for all the people in the country not be a one sided authoritarian, the chosen one attitude, and he should work for the betterment of all citizens. The US is regressing not going forward.
You and your ilk (bots) need to get your heads out of the sand/arce and wake up before it's too late for you to recoup your senses. I know it's hard for you low IQ lamebrains to see the forest because of the trees, but if you keep up your false rhetoric you'll be burned to the ground.
