Contradictory statements about Khashoggi death

On 19th October, seventeen days after the Khashoggi's disappearance, the Saudi government said the journalist had been killed. 
According to the Turkish government this brutal crime, which hurts the human consciousness, has been planned. The killing of the Saudi journalist continues to provoke reactions around the world, as some EU countries are calling for a credible investigation. Germany has stopped Saudi weapon deal and France has suspended all diplomatic visit to the kingdom. 

The U.S. is adopting negative measures towards Saudi Arabia, although at first President Trump said Saudi explanation was credible, stressing to important relations with the kingdom. He also said that Millions of American jobs are more important than imposing sanctions. 
Meanwhile Saudi government still continues to give contradictory statements. Who ordered Jamal Khashoggi's savage killing? He was killed by eighteen Saudi nationals, who have been detained in Saudi Arabia: who sent them to Turkey? And where is the body? The world needs  answers.
What happened with the Saudi Journalist Jamal Khashoggi tell us that human rights is a major issue in the Arab world and today in Saudi Arabia.

Disappaerance of the Saudi journalist, Khashoggi.

On October 2nd, Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi disappeared while he was in Istambul. According to Turkish officials, the prominent Saudi journalist, who chose to live in self-imposed exile in the U.S., was killed inside the Saudi consulate in  Istambul. It seems that he was butchered by members of a security team working for Saudi Royal family.
As it is known, Saudi government buys a lot of U.S. weapons, and Saudi Arabia sells cheap oil to the United States. From a wider perspective, the country which imports more weapons is the largest exporter of oil. Unfortunately, said trade relationship beween Saudi Arabia and the U.S. means impunity for Mohammad Bin Salman who may feel free to assassinate whoever he wants. 
After saudi Journalist had been killed, Mohammad Bin Salman talked about the possibility of a conspiracy to divide between Saudi Arabia and Turkey. On the contrary, now Saudi Arabia acknowledges Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi died inside the consulate. It's a full reversal from the Saudi government's repeated and vehement denials that anything had happened to the Saudi journalist in the consulate.
Some journalists around the world say the Saudi Prince has become more dangerous than other dictators, such as Qaddaffi or Saddam Hussein, because he has Billion of Dollars to spend in lobbing as well as in consensus. He kidnapped Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri, who was forced to resign, he bombed an entire country, and two months ago he destroyed a schoolbus in Yemen killing forty children.
What  will he do next? He might do anythink thanks to the President Trump who doesn't blame him.

Italy's populist budget

Since last week the EU has warned that Italy will end up worse off under the populist government's spending plan. It's easy to see that the EU establishment and its media system define "populist" all  Member states who disagree with their policy about immigration and unemployment. Actually, the new Italian goverment want to raise the public debt by 8.5 Billion, as the Prime Minister would like to introduce jobseeker's payments.  
As it is know, the UK, Germany, Ireland, and other UE countries, have introduced jobseeker's payments and unemployment allowances since very long time. And from 2011 to 2017, while the two previous Italian governments were raising public debt by 400 Billion, the EU and its establishment didn't say anything. The two governments were not defined as populist, and the EU agreed with their policy. On the contrary, after the EU Budget commissioner had said three months ago "financial market would show Italians how to vote",  Italy's "populist" budget began to draw concern from the UE. 
I can't understand who give them the right to say that to the Italian people.
