Turkey Sets Up Inner Cabinet to Oversee Emergency Rule

Turkey’s government is setting up an inner cabinet to oversee the implementation of the state of emergency it declared after last week’s botched coup, ramping up the effort to purge the influence of its accused mastermind from all walks of Turkish life.

    Meanwhile, back in the states, the Democrat nominee pledged that one of the first things she will do if elected is roll back the First Amendment by seeking to overturn the Citizens United ruling.

    Aaaa the real Deep State. Turkey will betray all of NATO’s secrets to ISIS and other assorted scumbsgs. I won’t surprised if the next coup will be Kurds and Kemalists with some European seasoning.

    I suspect a civil war combined with a war of national liberation brewing. Erogodan might have a pyrric victory in the end

    It is just astonishing that this kind of totalitarianism could take hold in a country like Turkey, that is full of sharia loving muslims. Thank goodness this has nothing to do with islam.

    Don’t bother making the Hitler comparison. Erdogan actually likes it.

  • BillyHW

    I suspect this emergency rule is going to last the rest of Erdogan’s lifetime, and then some.

    And of course we see another innocent Canadian journalist being held during a round-up of street thugs . I smell another Maher Arar extortion scam to bail him out of Turkey only to blame Canada and demand $400,000,000.00 for which he will settle for $10.2 million to avoid a Court trial and risk perjury on the stand .

    We can’t afford dual citizens that are arabs or Muslims when they only want our Passport to globe trot for Allahs Caliphate and Jihad while expecting us to rescue them when they get in trouble.

    Omar Khadr is now suing us , yet in February he was caught using his iPhone to go back to Al-Qaeda terrorism . The CBC and STAR no longer care about Khadr , when the bombs go off the CBC will blame Harper for getting this POS out of GITMO.
