The Saudi billionaire whose investment firm is one of the biggest stakeholders in Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. said he is looking to expand his alliances with the media giant, in the latest indication that his appetite for growth remains robust even as his company retrenches.Hang on a sec while I get my tinfoil hat. There. Now, Prince Alwaleed is the same Saudi Prince who offered Rudy Giuliani 10 million after 9/11 for rebuilding along with placing some blame on America, to which Rudy figuratively replied "nuts". He is the same Prince who bailed out Citigroup in the 90s and who benefited secondarily from the recent TARP bailout. It's no wonder he's against Obama's new punishment tax.
He's even on Facebook (Murdoch owns what's left of MySpace, btw).
And he's the same Prince Alwaleed mentioned offhandedly by the late civil rights hero Percy Sutton, as in the letter Sutton said he wrote at the behest of Khalid al-Mansour on behalf of getting Obama accepted into Harvard. Al-Mansour acted as an advisor and attorney to.. the Prince.
Meaning the Prince could have known about Obama as far back as 1990 during the Gulf War. Yes, admittedly a thin conspiracy reed since there's no proof Mansour ever mentioned the young up-and-comer community organizer Barack Hussein Obama to his Saudi client. But couple it to the fact that a man of brilliance such as Obama would steadfastly refuse to release any transcripts/records from his Columbia days and it looks kind of weird. Maybe it really is a small world after all. And just how much viewership and ad revenue did Fox (Alwaleed) gain from Obama's failed war on Fox News? Argg, the tinfoil is getting too tight!
Well, if nothing else it's decent fodder for speculation on the most miserable day of the year (no offense to Dr. King--the Brits don't celebrate). As if this wasn't enough.
