It is hard to look at the news today without finding some reference to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as ‘MBS’. Of course it seems normal these days to think of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed as ‘KSM’; or to know Osama bin Laden as ‘OBL’ . (When I contributed to this analysis on MH 370 in March 2014, I wanted to refer to Zaharie Ahmad Shah as ‘ZAS’, but my collaborator discouraged it — perhaps sensing the loaded connotation that such a three letter name initialization of a Muslim associated with terror intentionally carried.) It is clear that this ‘initialization’ is almost a form of labeling associated with fears about radical Islamic terrorism today.
Knowing that the case of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder seems to be connected 1.) to Saudi geopolitical struggles with Turkey, in 2.) the context of the Syrian Civil War, which is 3.) a proxy struggle that is propped up by diplomatic and military assistance from Russia and Iran; and that 4.) pro-Russian conspiracists who were connected to the most viral 9/11 conspiracies (which are anti-Saudi at core focusing on Osama bin Laden and Bush family connections to Saudi Arabia) as well as ‘Syrian false flag’ chemical weapons narratives (in the Syrian Civil War period) — are now using ‘MBS’ as a core of their 2001-like claims; I figured I should check it out.
“AT LAST the Beast of Riyadh, the Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman (AKA MBS) is getting unwanted American and worldwide attention for what he is really like, the young and ruthless power behind the throne of his stroke-ridden father, King Salman. Starting last year I began writing about MBS as a new and perhaps the most formidable candidate for Nostradamus’ Antichrist I’ve ever encountered since being on the trail for candidates since 1983… MBS is an evil beast but he’s your beast, Mr. and Mrs. America.” – John Hogue, Hogueprophecy.com
It seemed almost blindingly obvious to me that John Hogue referring to MBS as a codeword for Nostradamus’ ‘third antichrist’ ‘Mabus’ was a renewed instance of the same kind of strategy which had been used to make Osama bin Laden to look like such a ‘third antichrist’ following the 9/11 (2001) attacks. (Hogue had the top selling book of the 9/11 timeframe and the subject was Nostradamus — he’d predicted Osama Bin Laden as Nostradamus’ ‘third antichrist’ since June 2001.)
Having had some experience with Google Trends to do quantitative analyses of keywords; as well as Google Search itself to assist in quantifying the volume of a topic on a given site as well as qualitatively analyze results, I decided to see if I could find where ‘MBS’ comes from.Continue reading “Seems Russia wants us to know Mohammed bin Salman as MBS”
