Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was arrested in King Salman’s anti-corruption crackdown.
This is the same Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal who, together with Bill Gates, owns the Four Seasons Hotel that is located within the 5 top floors of the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.
Note-this post has been edited since it was first published.
That would be the same Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas that was the sight of the deadliest mass shooting in our nation’s history.
A note of interest…
The Four Seasons Hotel-within-a-hotel boasts its own private elevators and separate entrance.
His arrest may or may not reveal more ties to the Las Vegas Massacre. But it does reveal that he’s a pretty shady character.
Prince Alaweed’s arrest was the result of King Salman’s decree to create an anti-corruption committee chaired by his son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
…King Salman decreed late on Saturday the creation of an anti-corruption committee chaired by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman…”
“The allegations against Prince Alwaleed include money laundering, bribery and extorting officials, one official told Reuters, while Prince Miteb is accused of embezzlement, hiring ghost employees and awarding contracts to his own companies including a $10 billion deal for walkie talkies and bulletproof military gear worth billions of Saudi royals.”
A note of interest…
Prince Alaweed bin Talal is also Twitter’s second largest shareholder. That would be the same Twitter that allows ISIS, Antifa and anyone who threatens to assassinate our President free reign on their platform but blocks conservative American patriots’ accounts. Now we don’t have that kind of money to invest in shares or play around with the stock market, but with the help of Stocktrades you could earn some extra dollars you wouldn’t have otherwise had.
Another note of interest….
Speaking of information flow-the Prince’s investment company, Kingdom Holding Company, is a major shareholder in Time Warner Cable. The same Time Warner cable that owns CNN. Oh- and they also own a major chunk of AOL that owns the Liberal multi-author blogging platform posing as a news source-Huffpost.
Jim Murren, CEO of MGM dumped millions of dollars worth of his stocks in the weeks leading up to the massacre.
That would be the same MGM that owns the Mandalay Bay Hotel. How fortunate that he dumped his stocks before the mass shooting.

CEO Jim Murren circulated an internal memo that stated that he would match donations to CAIR ( a terrorist organization) and the ADL-a very anti-Trump, pro-Islamic organization. He must like Twitter.
The Saudis partnered with the MGM
Reuters reported that back in ’07 Dubai World became partners with MGM.
“Dubai World, the investment holding firm of the Dubai government, will acquire a 9.5 percent stake in MGM Mirage and 50 percent of the casino operator’s CityCenter development project for $5 billion.”
A note of interest…
Dubai World referred to the deal as a “long term strategic partnership.”
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal hails from Saudi Arabia.
That would be the same country as the Saudi Royal Air Force-that just happened to be doing some “realistic combat training” in Las Vegas.
…It may or may not be “routine,” but during the month of August, from the 5th to the 28th, the Saudi Air Force booked an entire tower of “SLS,” a beleaguered Las Vegas hotel. They didn’t stay there to ogle scantily clad Las Vegas women. Arrangements were made to keep all female staff away from them. Some areas were closed to the public and pictures of females were yanked from the walls.
The purpose was for “realistic combat training” and they’re planning on making a habit of it. The Las Vegas Review Journal reported,
“Saudi Arabia’s 10th Squadron Royal Saudi Air Force will be taking part in Red Flag 17-4 at Nellis Air Force Base, according to airwingspotter.com, a site dedicated to military aviation photography and spotting. Red Flag, combat training involving the air, space and cyberforces of the United States and its allies, will be held Aug. 14-25.
“Depending on the year, the Royal Saudi Air Force will bring 175-210 members to these realistic combat exercises,” S&K said in the 2014 post.”
Who needs a military base when you can rent a hotel? Food’s better too.
A note of interest…
Caught up in King Salman’s sweep was the Commander of the Saudi Navy as well as the Minister of the National Guards. No mention yet of the Royal Saudi Air Force.
Connections or coincidences?
Right now it’s too early to tell if investigation into the criminal activities of Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal will expose any involvement in the Las Vegas shooting.
It’s too early to tell if King Salman, who President Trump has fostered a friendly relationship with, will share such potentially embarrassing knowledge should it be discovered.
It’s too early to tell if President Trump’s speech before the Arab Islamic American Summit last May urging Saudis and other middle eastern nations to drive out terrorists inspired King Salman to clean the Royal House.
But it probably didn’t hurt.
We will hopefully be inspired by King Salman as well.
Some reports have pointed out that the Royal housecleaning was part of a counter-coup. We could sure use a counter-coup. Maybe ending corruption is the first step.
The royal decree stated, “The homeland will not exist unless corruption is uprooted and the corrupt are held accountable.”
We couldn’t agree more. Right Jeff Sessions?
