    Four Turkish soldiers and a military attaché who had applied for asylum in Norway following the 15 July coup attempt have been granted residence and working permits. Kjell M. Brygfjeld, lawyer of the five Turkish nationals, confirmed the decision which has stirred controversy between the NATO allies to Norwegian daily Klassekampen.Turkey had asked Norway for the extradition of the four soldiers and the military attaché, suspected of having participated in the failed coup. The decision to grant the suspects and their families, all living at secret addresses, asylum in Norway may thus further add to the already tense relationship between Turkey and Europe.Turkish...
  • Has there ever been this level of resistance/interference by a prior administration to the incoming?

    Has there ever been this level of resistance/interference by a prior administration to the incoming in U.S. history? Haven't we always prided ourselves on our smooth and peaceful transitions of power from one elected administration/party to the next? If we didn't know better and understand that this cannot happen in America, the level of organized and criminal interference and obstruction against the duly elected President Trump being put up by former President Obama himself and his new socialist organization, the entire democrat party, the GOP establishment, the entrenched holdovers throughout government, the liberal activist judges and the liberal media might...

    Al-Monitor has learned that US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is expected to travel to Turkey March 30. He will be the most senior US official to formally visit Turkey since the Donald Trump administration took office in January. A senior Turkish official who spoke on the condition of anonymity confirmed that Tillerson was expected to meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, among others. The official was unaware of Tillerson’s full itinerary but said it would not be unusual for the secretary to visit other countries in the region as well. The official declined to elaborate any further. In an emailed...

    The Turkish government has failed to convince Germany's BND foreign intelligence agency that U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen was behind last summer's failed coup in Turkey, the BND head told a German magazine. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and the Turkish government accuse Gulen of orchestrating Turkey's failed coup on July 15 in which more than 240 people were killed when rogue soldiers commandeered tanks, warplanes and helicopters, attacking parliament and attempting to overthrow the government.. "Turkey has tried to convince us of that at every level but so far it has not succeeded," BND head Bruno Kahl said in an interview...

    The American Spectator ^ | March 10, 2017 | John C. Wohlstetter
    In 1962, authors Fletcher Knebel and Charles Bailey published a novel, Seven Days in May, about a nearly successful right-wing military takeover of the federal government by generals appalled by a nuclear disarmament accord placed before the Senate for ratification. The plotters saw the treaty as a naïve giveaway to the Russians that they felt would doom the United States to destruction. The 1964 film, also titled Seven Days in May, was a big hit. Coming to theaters months after JFK was assassinated — the December 1963 release date was put back several months due to the resulting national trauma...

    When Turkey’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) came to power in 2002, it generated considerable debate between those who saw its success as a potentially liberalizing force and critics who feared it would ultimately bring the end of Turkish democracy. Depending on who you spoke to, the AKP was poised to turn Turkey into either Sweden or Iran; to finally realize Ataturk’s vision of making the country modern and Western or permanently destroy it.Today, a decade and a half later, the future of Turkish democracy certainly looks grim. With President Recep Tayyip Erdogan now leading a heavy-handed campaign to further...

    Di Leo: The Deep State -- an Institutional Barrier Against Draining the Swamp By John F. Di Leo - As the Trump Administration began, two terms took over our discourse, from keyboard warriors on social media to the formal political theorists of the mainstream media. These two terms are not exactly antonyms, as one is a verb and the other is a gerund, but they certainly are diametrically opposed to each other: Draining the Swamp on the one hand, and the Deep State on the other. Draining the Swamp was easy to say, easy to understand, easy to cheer for....

    After Trump secured the nomination, Obama's people filed a wiretapping request. As he was on the verge of winning, they did it again. After he won, they are doing everything they can to bring him down. It was always going to come down to this. One is the elected President of the United States. The other is the Anti-President who commands a vast network that encompasses the organizers of OFA, the official infrastructure of the DNC and Obama Anonymous, a shadow government of loyalists embedded in key positions across the government.

    Democrats’ efforts to raise suspicions about alleged — and, thus far, imaginary — links between President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government may have backfired spectacularly. The spotlight is now on President Barack Obama and his administration’s alleged surveillance of the Trump campaign, as well as his aides’ reported efforts to spread damaging information about Trump throughout government agencies to facilitate later investigations and, possibly, leaks to the media.

Raise the issue in public in the hopes that Flynn errs and denies the conversations took place 3. Force Flynn’s resignation for lying in his denials 4. Use wiretaps and surveillance of the Russians (and perhaps of Sessions?) to get evidence of his contacts with them 5. At the confirmation hearing, set up Sessions with a question so he can be accused of “lying” 6. Demand that he recuse...

Kathy (Journalist): “My sources from the White House told me, she thinks it’s all true. She said, um there were concerns that Trump-and this is from the White House and the administration inside the White House…there were concerns that Trump and his surrogates may have been colluding with the Russians and a possible bargaining chip to influence the election, therefore a wiretap was conducted.”

    Following Trump's stunning allegation that Obama wiretapped the Trump Tower in October of 2016, prior to the presidential election, which may or may not have been sourced from a Breitbart story, numerous Democrats and media pundits have come out with scathing accusations that Trump simply has no idea what he is talking about. The best example of this came from Ben Rhodes, a former senior adviser to President Obama in his role as deputy National Security Advisor, who slammed Trump's accusation, insisting that "No President can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people...

    Mark Levin, Conservative Review’s editor-in-chief, recommends the Trump administration open an investigation into Barack Obama. Levin states the former president used the government to wiretap then-candidate Trump during the 2016 election. “The gravity of this is unparalleled. It appears that during the course of a presidential election, the Obama administration used both intelligence and law enforcement agencies to investigate the Republican nominee's campaign and certain surrogates,” Levin tells Conservative Review. Levin – who served as chief of staff for President Reagan’s Attorney General Ed Meese – explained the potential scandal on his Thursday evening radio show: “We have a prior...

Marlow wondered if there was any legal recourse for the Trump administration to halt this operation. “Yes, there is,” Barnes replied. “In fact, it’s one of the directions that a future investigation can take. A future investigation doesn’t have to focus on whatever it is the Democrats or liberals want. It can focus on the illegal leaks that...

    On January 13, 2017, Homeland Security announced grants made by the outgoing Homeland administration in an effort to focus its efforts on countering Radical Islam.

In light of his group receiving $400,000 this year from Homeland and the current Homeland administration reevaluating such grants, these treasonous tweets by Mr. Picciolini are significant. Why are our tax dollars going to this Trump-bashing organizer?
