Hillary Clinton continues to insist that she would have won the election if not for Wikileaks’ DNC email publications and James Comey’s decision to re-open the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s improper use of private email servers.
Her delusions persist just as Comey defended his decision to go public about re-opening the FBI’s investigation of Clinton.
Julian Assange is clearly as fed up of Hillary Clinton’s lie-mongering as anyone else.
Assange let his feelings be known in a Tweet that said it all,
Assange later hammered the point home in another Tweet,
When will she ever learn?
Ilnur Cevik, the chief adviser to Turkish President Erdogan has made a sensational claim during an interview on the Turkish radio station CRI-FM.
Due to recent Turkish attacks on Kurdish led SDF fighters in Syria, America which is a strong ally of the Kurds, has positioned US forces in Syria between Kurdish and Turkish forces to act as a buffer zone between the two opposing parties.
The Turkish Presidential adviser was asked by the interviewer,
“What will you say to the US? They’ve served as a shield for the terrorists from the Kurdistan Worker’s Party. They’ve become a shield so that we cannot strike them”?
“The fact that they (US troops) went there doesn’t mean anything. If the PKK terrorists continue to operate in Turkey – and as you know, they are leaking in through northern Syria. They are infiltrating into our country through that region”
“What happened to Daesh (ISIS)? One night we suddenly went (after ISIS); we ended up in El-Bab. The same applies to northern Syria. If our forces push far enough, and US armoured vehicles are already there…You may see several missiles accidentally hitting them”.
This extraordinary quote claims that Turkish forces ended up illegally occupying El-Bab because Turkey was effectively chasing ISIS deeper into Syria, something which Turkey has no international mandate to do.
The second part of the quote which if anything is even more extraordinary, implies that Turkey is willing to risk hitting US forces in its war against Kurdish groups.
At this point, the interviewer tried to restrain Erdogan’s adviser, saying,
“…you have expressed yourself in a very severe manner”.
Like Erdogan, rather than backing out of a rhetorical black-hole, Cevik re-asserted his earlier statement. He replied,
“If they act in this way, what would you do”.
Thus far the United States has not responded to these remarks, but could one imagine the reaction if for example, a North Korean adviser to Kim Jong-Un hypothetically said,
“In patrolling the Demilitarised Zone, some of our soldiers may accidentally fire shots at US troops”.
One can almost hear the sound of Tomahawk missiles being loaded into their launchers.
This irresponsible and provocative statement from a high level adviser to Turkey’s ultra-powerful President ought to be met with condemnation from the United States.
Political advertisements are par for the course in most elections, but it is rare for a sitting President to put out an ad touting his accomplishments.
But this is exactly what Donald Trump has done to celebrate his first 100 days in office.
The advert is a fairly standard litany of President Trump’s official accomplishments, until he shows images of America’s most famous mainstream media reporters with the words ‘FAKE NEWS’ written across their faces.
The ‘line up’ of fake news offenders includes CNN’s Wolf Blitzer MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and CBS’s Scott Pelley.
The advert was scheduled to run in a paid slot on CNN, but this was refused by CNN who released a Tweet saying,
