And Another Dictator is Hatched & And A Nasty, Ambitious One

April 16, 2017

You may remember the uprising in Turkey a few months ago. It was a military coup or failed coup I should say, but too bad it failed because Mr. Erdogan, Prime Minister turned President of Turkey, has given himself near dictatorial power having won a referendum concentrating all executive power in the presidency and giving him greater control over judicial appointments. Term limits for the presidency would be reset and, if he wins elections in 2019 and 2024, he could be in power until 2029. He’s already been in power since 2012.

Evil Erdogan

Turkish authorities including President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blame the aborted coup last summer on US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen. Gulen has lived in the United States since 1999 in self-imposed exile. His movement according to UK’s Independent is centered on Islamic teachings, running schools and dormitories which have grown into a worldwide network in which, Turkey says, his followers were groomed and eventually infiltrated state organs, including the judiciary, police and military.

After the failed coup at least 250 people, presumably Gulen followers were killed and many jailed in a widespread crackdown. The arrests of nearly 50,000 government critics, academics, journalists, military officials and civil servants drew widespread international condemnation and strained Turkey’s relations with the European Union.

Unfortunately Erdogan wants a Caliphate under strict Sharia law. A caliphate is an Islamic state. It’s led by a caliph, (presumably Erdogan) who is a political and religious leader, the successor (caliph) to the Islamic prophet Muhammad. His power and authority is absolute. According to, president Erdogan has called on Turkish citizens living in Europe to have five children in a bid to multiply their presence in the continent so that they will be the “future of Europe.” Erdogan hints that Muslims will soon occupy Europe:

“The place in which you are living and working is now your homeland and new motherland. Stake a claim to it. Open more businesses, enroll your children in better schools, make your family live in better neighborhoods, drive the best cars, live in the most beautiful houses”

“That’s because you [the Muslim Turks] are the future of Europe. It will be the best answer to the vulgarism, antagonism, and injustice made against you.”

Do we really need another nut-job dictator in that part of the world whose quest is to capture territory and convert or kill the rest of us? Not no, but hell no! Turkey has along with Putin, been supporting Bashar al-Assad & ISIS and BTW, Turkey is a member of NATO. How’s that work?

Why Does He ALWAYS Take The Side Of Islamists?

July 16, 2016

During the Green Revolution in Iran in 2009 Iranian freedom fighters sent the White House an urgent memo calling for help. Obama ignored it, passing on the chance to finally displace the  government established by the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979. Before 1979 enjoying their short skirts, tanktops, freedom, education, music, dance, Iranians had a future to look forward to. Now Sharia law is strictly enforced.

Obama took the wrong side again supporting the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi in Egypt when the people rose up against the newly elected leader as he became more authoritarian. He raised taxes massively and the price of staple foods. He announced that the presidency was above the law and not subject to judicial review. Things went from bad to worse and the people soon supported the military coup.

Egyptians against Morsi

The Egyptian people wrote this banner in English, exposing Obama for to the American news media.

We saw the same thing yesterday when Obama could have supported the dismantling of an Islamic state, instead he urged everyone to support the democratically elected government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. But As Lt. Col Ralph Peters states this coup may be Turkey’s last best hope. “The military and the people staging this coup are against the Islamists, fundamentalists and extremists. They’re for democracy. They’re for a secular constitution.” Is that what we need more of in this world we’re in today?

Nope, not Obama. He’s always for some strange reason on the side of the thugs and terrorists. We just need to show more love and compassion.
