A year after failed coup in Turkey,
Erdogan says ´behead traitors´

CNN, by Joe Sterling and Samantha Beech

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 7/16/2017 8:55:01 AM

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan -- delivering feisty and stirring messages on the one-year anniversary of a failed coup aimed at unseating him -- lauded the popular resistance that helped stop the coup, and promised to decapitate "traitors," a sign that his harsh crackdown against his foes over the last 12 months will continue. Speaking to hundreds of thousands of people at a massive ceremony on Saturday in Istanbul, Erdogan urged vigilance against lurking enemies and declared that last summer´s bloody ordeal emboldened the nation. "This experience has unified us, made us stronger," the President said. "This wasn´t the first

Erdogan is the one who ought to lose his head. He is an ally of ISIS and an enemy of the sane portion of humanity. He´s also a buddy of Obama, who sure knows how to pick anti-American friends.

Another failed Islamic state. Anyone notice that Erdogan is following Hitler´s playbook? First, use the excuse of the coup to imprison all of your political oppo then pass your own version of the "enabling laws" to become president-for-life. My Turkish friends are horrified at what is happening there.

What happens when one of the world´s largest and best equipped nations fall to the ISIS flag? Erdogan is a monster, far worse than the Mullahs of Iran ever thought of being. He is a muslim fanatic who will not hesitate to bring all the blood any nation can stand. What does the EU think of this resurgence of the Ottomans? They will chatter away about it, I suppose. But, really, they will do nothing. How can they now that they have allowed a massive Islamic army come right into their nations without so much as a whimper?

Since progressives love Muzzies and find little fault in their tactics, perhaps Trump should employ Erdogan´s anti-leak policy to the MSM and federal employees.

Turkish people realize Islam is an Arab-centric religion and they don´t really like it that much. This guy is getting rather tiresome to most Turks and they want him gone, unfortunately, he controls the military now through his firing of all General officers and replacing them with people loyal to him. This is a bloodless revolution so far. We´ll see how far he can continue with his Islamization of Turkey.

Protesters toppled a Confederate monument in Durham, N.C. on Monday night. Video posted to Twitter shows protestors surrounding the statue and chanting "No KKK! No fascists! USA" as several protestors appear to pull down the statue with a rope. WNCN reports the statue was dedicated in Durham in 1924 and was located in front of a local government building. The statue represented a soldier who fought in the Civil War and an inscription on the front read "The Confederate States of America." One organizer of the protest told WNCN that toppling the statue was in response to the violence at a white supremacist

A Chinese automaker reportedly made a quiet bid to acquire Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, raising the distinct possibility that the traditional member of the Detroit Three that was bailed out by U.S. taxpayers could wind up with Chinese ownership. (Snip) The U.S. government bailed out Chrysler in late 2008 and 2009, funding the company´s bankruptcy and helping to negotiate Italian automaker Fiat´s deal to gain control of the brand. Several years later, Fiat gained full ownership of Chrysler. A deal would almost certainly raise political hackles in the U.S. over the possibility that a company rescued by taxpayers could yield to

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Among the chaos of the white supremacist rally and apparent car attack that left one dead and 19 others injured, one group in Charlottesville, Virginia, said they were present to maintain the peace: local and national faith leaders. The leaders are now questioning the response by local and state police officers. Brian McLaren, a former priest and nationally-known religious author and speaker, traveled from Florida to be part of an effort called "Congregate C´Ville," which aimed to bring hundreds of faith leaders across the country to Charlottesville, organizer Seth Wispelwey tells CBS News.

Whenever Ryan Bethencourt meets a promising start-up making an alternative to animal products, he knows who to call. The "vegan mafia" is a group of powerful vegans across the country who fund start-ups, and try to wean people from their dependence on animal products. (Snip) The best-known start-ups in the space include Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, which make plant-based meat-like and cheese-like products; and Pembient, which bioengineers wildlife products in a lab, like rhino horn and elephant ivory.

Elizabeth Warren slams calls for Democrats to

Washington Examiner, by Emily Jashinsky    Original Article

ATLANTA — Referring to the crowd of progressive conference-goers as President Trump´s "worst nightmare," Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., tore into members of her own party who believe Democrats should move toward the center in a fiery speech at Netroots Nation. In the Saturday morning keynote, Warren singled out a July op-ed in the New York Times written by Mark Penn and Andrew Stein titled "Back to the Center, Democrats." The headline itself was enough to draw a loud chorus of boos from the audience. "It was all about how we have to stop caring about ´identity politics´ and how we

Another bullish call for gold comes with yet another call for a financial meltdown, this time from famed investor Jim Rogers. The best-selling author expects the next financial crisis to be the "worst" he has ever seen. "We´ve had economic problems in the U.S. or in North America every four to eight years since the beginning of the Republic so to say that we´re going to have a problem is not unusual," he told Kitco News from the Freedom Fest conference in Las Vegas.

Former President Obama will re-emerge on the national scene this fall, though Democrats expect him to do so with caution. One aide describes the beginning of a "delicate dance" that aims to put Obama in the Democratic fray, but prevent him from remaining the face of the party. Aides will huddle with Obama in the coming weeks to plot out what shape the former president´s fall schedule will take. Advisers close to him say that while he will play an active role in helping his party rebuild, much of his work will be behind the scenes. He is likely to

The parent company of Applebee´s and IHOP plans to close up to 160 restaurants, vastly boosting the number of eateries from the two comfort-food chains that it plans to shutter. Some 105 to 135 Applebee´s restaurants will close, up from the 40 to 60 that parent DineEquity said would close in the first quarter. Also on the chopping block are an estimated 20 to 25 IHOP sites, up from about 18.  (Snip) Analysts say Applebee´s, in particular, has had a hard time. Applebee’s "remains out-of-favor with casual-dining consumers....Sister concept IHOP may be feeling the effects of DineEquity’s struggles as well," said Instinet analyst Mark

CNN severed ties with Jeffrey Lord on Thursday, hours after he ignited controversy by tweeting the words "Sieg Heil!" at a prominent liberal activist. "Nazi salutes are indefensible," a CNN spokesperson said in a statement. "Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network." Lord said his tweet was misunderstood. He said he was mocking fascists, not acting like one. "I love CNN, but I feel they are caving to bullies here," he said in a telephone interview shortly after the network´s decision was announced. Lord said his contract was set to expire at the end of the year. He said

MARTHA’S VINEYARD, Mass.—Jamaicans and other foreign workers have long powered the summer economy in the upscale tourist haven of Martha’s Vineyard, cleaning hotel rooms, waiting tables and mixing fudge. This year, many local businesses had to come up with a Plan B. Facing a shortage of foreign laborers, local restaurants have reduced hours of operation and pared back menus. Managers are cleaning hotel rooms, laundry is piling up and at least one restaurant is using disposable cups to ease the dishwashers’ load. The problem is a scarcity of the H-2B visas used to bring foreign seasonal workers to the U.S.

A Kentucky man and his transgender wife sued Amazon on Wednesday, alleging that they endured sustained discrimination and harassment during a year as co-workers at the mammoth online retailer´s warehouse in northern Kentucky. A lawyer working with the couple said the case is notable in part because Amazon, one of the nation´s largest corporations, has a record of strongly supporting gay and transgender rights. The lawsuit , filed in U.S. District Court in Covington, Kentucky, alleges that Dane Lane and Allegra Schawe-Lane were targeted with threats, slurs and sexual harassment by numerous colleagues at their shipping facility.

Marshawn Lynch, a runningback for the Oakland Raiders, sat and ate a banana during the national anthem on Saturday before the Raiders’ first preseason football game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona. Lynch did not play during the game, and the Raiders’ coach said Lynch’s actions were a “non-issue.” Although Lynch said he has been doing this for 11 years, photos and videos show he stood on many occasions for the national anthem in recent years. Lynch reportedly was not present in the locker room after the game, according to CBS Sports. However, the Raiders’ coach, Jack Del Rio, said

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — White House officials, under siege over President Trump’s reluctance to condemn white supremacists for the weekend’s bloody rallies in Charlottesville, Va., tried to clarify his comments on Sunday, as critics in both parties intensified demands that he adopt a stronger, more unifying message. A statement on Sunday — issued more than 36 hours after the protests began — condemned “white supremacists” for the violence that led to one death. It came in an email sent to reporters in the president’s traveling press pool, and was attributed to an unnamed representative. It was not attributed directly to Mr.

Saturday was marked by bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia after an apparent white nationalist plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters in a blatant attack. And on the morning after, NBC’s Sunday Today put President Trump in their sights as they unloaded on him while appearing to pin the blame for the attack on him. At one point even claiming he “enjoys” the support he gets from the bigots who were rallying in Virginia. “President Trump condemned the violence there on Saturday but he did not specifically speak to the white nationalism that was on display,” complained Anchor Willie Geist as he was

Former FBI Director James Comey’s statements, testimony and behavior are truly abhorrent. Comey admitted under oath before Congress that the bureau did not utilize a federal grand jury in the Hillary e-mail investigation. Furthermore, he testified that in his experience, when dealing with attorneys, you can obtain information easier and faster than via a federal grand jury. Never, I repeat never, in my 25-year career have I or any FBI agent

‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.

It shouldn’t be that hard to summon up a few Trumpian terms like “losers” and “really, really bad people” to describe the hundreds of neo-Nazis, Klansmen, white supremacists and the like who descended on the
