There will be no investigation, and Trump will take no action against Saudi Arabia. He invariably makes the wrong choice, and then finds a way to double down, in this case by praising a Congressman's attack on a journalist.

Yet another form of voter suppression, but this one can be overcome. Yes, DCCC or some similar organization, charter buses.

Once more surprised that I'm liking a column by someone as profoundly conservative as Rubin, but I agree with every word.

Clearly Khashoggi dismembered himself. Is there one person in the world who will believe whatever explanation is concocted?

As has been pointed out elsewhere, if we're going to sell arms, itself a questionable proposition, we should be using proffered sales as leverage against the buyers, not the other way around. One more way in which Trump is terrible at the art of the deal.

"This is a big deal," "In the permafrost world, this is a significant milestone in a disturbing trend—like carbon in the atmosphere reaching 400 parts per million."

I'm a Los Angeles Times regular contributing opinion writer doing an op-ed on the importance of voter turnout in California. I'd like to ask you a few questions, either over the phone or via email, related to this. Will that work? If yes, please send contact info.

This story got lost in the Kavanaugh imbroglio. I still wonder why The Times didn't wait a few more days to publish it. It's utterly damning, to anyone other than our shameless POTUS.

"Rogue killers" inside the Saudi embassy who made both Khashoggi's body and themselves disappear-- that's totally plausible.

The line from Trump's calling journalists "enemies of the people" to atrocities like this is pretty direct-- an invitation to despots everywhere to kill journalists without consequence. Yet another way in which Trump destabilizes the world.

"the response to climate change looks similar to the response to the financial crisis: fail to recognise there is a problem until it is too late; panic; then muddle through."
