Turkey Caught Fabricating Story Of Who Is Responsible For "Military Coup"


The Worst (Fake?) Coup Ever Has Enthroned Erdogan As A Dictator And Has Sealed Turkey’s Fate

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:
What just happened in Turkey? I have been thinking about this for a number of hours now, and I have narrowed it down to two options. Either this was the worst military coup in my entire lifetime, or it was staged. I will explain how I came to this conclusion below, but in any event the end result of this “coup” is that President Erdogan is even more popular and has consolidated power to an extent that is absolutely breathtaking. He already was essentially a dictator, but now this “coup” has sealed Turkey’s fate and has pushed them even farther down the path toward becoming a radical Islamic state.
If you are going to conduct a military coup, the very first thing that should be on your list is to decapitate the current leadership structure. But even though hundreds were killed and approximately 1,400 people were injured during the short-lived conflict, not a single high ranking official was killed or captured.

Turkish Prosecutors Raid Incirlik Airbase Housing US Warplanes And 50 Nuclear Bombs

The saga surrounding the Turkish Incirlik air base, which is not only the headquarters to the US 39th Air Base Wing but also vaults over 50 B1 nuclear bombs, and is critical to all US missions not only against ISIS but the entire middle east continues. Moments ago, Turkey's state-run news agency says seven prosecutors, charged with investigating a foiled coup, have entered the Incirlik Air Base.

"It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Race-War In America"

"There are few things in life one can predict with certainty, but given the grave events of recent weeks, it is hard to see how deadly gunplay might be avoided at the 2016 Republican convention... Maybe it’s time for the Black President, Mr. Obama, to just come out and tell the black population that their grievances against the police are trumped up."

ABC: 72% Believe Clinton Too Willing to Bend the Rules

by David Rutz, Washington Free Beacon:
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal continues to be a drag on her numbers with the public, with a new ABC News / Washington Post poll out Sunday showing a whopping 72 percent believe she is too willing to bend the rules.
FBI Director James Comey’s criticism of Clinton’s “extremely careless” email practices are a large factor in Clinton’s struggles to win the public’s trust. Although she was not charged with mishandling classified material, the damage to her public image has been significant.
She led Republican rival Donald Trump 47-to-43 percent in their matchup, but that was a steep drop from the 12-point advantage she enjoyed last month. Fifty-eight percent of registered voters in the poll said they were dissatisfied with choosing between Trump and Clinton.

Meanwhile, Outside The Republican National Convention...

While the Republican National Convention warms up inside ahead of tonight's 'main event', the action outside is getting interesting as a large anti-trump protest is moving slowly towards the Quicken Loans Arena.

3 Baton Rouge Officers Gunned Down- False Flag Written All Over This Event

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
Tragically, three Baton Rouge officers have been gunned down. This corresponds to a false flag issued last week by The Common Sense Show, in which Shreveport and Baton Rouge were mentioned as possible targets for a false flag attack upon police officers.
One week ago today, I published the following email from a nurse in Baton Rouge. I also issued a strong a warning for a possible false flag in Shreveport and expanded the warning to Baton Rouge with the following email and other information sent to The Common Sense Show.

Man Dies After Being Shot In The Head At "Stop The Violence" Rally In Ohio

At around 9pm last night a 19-year-old man was shot in the head during at a "Stop the Violence Beach Party" in Euclid, Ohio. As KMOV reports, this shooting followed an earlier shooting which killed one man (and wounded a 12 year old boy) at the rally with around 250 people present. Sadly, and darkly ironic, the 3rd victim has now died. Perhaps what we need is more Hillbama calls for 'civility'.

Largest US Pension Fund Suffers Worst Annual Return Since Financial Crisis Due To Heavy Stock Losses

While we have often documented the dramatic underperformance by the hedge fund industry over the past decade, today we learn that "vanilla" asset managers were also hurt over the past year in which the S&P went nowhere. Case in point: Calpers, the largest U.S. public pension fund which as the WSJ reports posted its lowest annual gain since the last financial crisis due to heavy losses in stocks.

Commander of Air Base Holding US Nukes Arrested After Turkey Coup Attempt

from Sputnik News:
On Sunday, Turkish authorities arrested the commander of Incirlik airbase General Bekir Ercan Van, putting in question US-led anti-Daesh operations that are launched from the Turkish base, as well as relevancy of storing American nukes there.
Bekir Ercan Van was detained at the base along with a number of lower-ranking officers on suspicion of the complicity in the military coup attempt in the country. The news came amid a large-scale “cleansing” operation aimed at capturing all the coup plotters. By that moment, around 6,000 people have been arrested.

The 'BLM' Paradox - Black Accountability Matters

Given recent distressing killings between Blacks and police -in the past week - it is worth poring into the broad statistics that underlie homicides in this country, by race. We dejectedly note that an astonishing 4/5 of these police killed were done so by Black civilians (the same ones who are killing one another at 8x the national rate and paradoxically expecting law enforcement to stop that, but then shriek when the police do).

China Warns US Patrols In South China Sea Could End In "Disaster" As It Launches Navy Drills

Less than a week after a Hague tribunal found that China has no territorial rights in the South China Sea, contrary to Beijing's "Nine Dash Line" claims, China has made it abundantly clear that it will no comply with the ruling when overnight a senior Chinese admiral said that Freedom of navigation patrols carried out by foreign navies in the South China Sea could end "in disaster" while also announcing the unexpected start of navy drills in the contested waters, in the most direct warning to the United States yet.

French Prime Minister Booed At Moment Of Silence In Nice

The French resentment toward its Prime Minister was on full display again today, when Valls was loudly booed at memorial service to remember the victims of the Nice terror attack. Valls was booed as he went to sign the book of condolence at the memorial service on the Promenade des Anglais. “Resignation!” “Murderers” was shouted by the crowds before and after the ceremony.

Former Turkey Air Force Commander Unsure If He Was Ring-Leader In Coup, Pleads Guilty

The farcical 'coup' fallout continues. Having earlier denied his involvement in the coup in statements he made to Turkish media (insisting he worked to quell the uprising), Turkey's state-run news agency reports that former Air Force commander General Akin Ozturk has now pleaded guilty to organizing the coup attempt. "I started to act aiming to stage a coup," Ozturk admitted during interrogation... but, adding to the confusion, CNN Turk additionally reports that Ozturk stated "he was not the one to plan the coup." So to be clear, he did not plan it but acted with intent to stage it... and that is how Erdogan gets his scapegoat.

Erdogan Purges 20,000 As Europe Voices Concern Coup Was Staged With "Prepared Arrest Lists"

Overnight Turkish president Erdogan's counter-coup witch hunt continued, when thousands of police officers were suspended on Monday, widening a systemic purge of Erdogan's enemies first in the armed forces and then judiciary after a failed military coup, now focusing on the interior police force, and raising concern among European allies that it was abandoning the rule of law. Turkey's state-run news agency says the nation has detained or suspended 20,000 personnel across the country, following Friday's foiled coup attempt.

Fiat Chrysler Shares Slide On Reports Of SEC Securities Fraud Probe

Fiat Chrysler is under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department for fraud, according to people familiar with the matter. As Bloomberg reports, prosecutors are scrutinizing whether the carmaker violated U.S. securities laws, they said. The inquiry is in early stages, according to two people, who asked not to be identified because the investigation is confidential and declined to specify what conduct is being investigated.

European Central Banks Disclose Which Corporate Bonds They Own

Earlier today, alongside the ECB's latest weekly disclosure of total corporate bond purchases under the CSPP program, which as of July 15 had risen by approximately €2 billion to €10.427 billion, suggesting a daily purchase pace of about €400 million, Europe's various regional central banks also disclosed for the first time the CUSIP list of which specific bonds they had purchased over the past month and a half.

Why Oil Prices Might Never Recover

Two years into the global oil-price collapse, it seems unlikely that prices will return to sustained levels above $70 per barrel any time soon or perhaps, ever. That is because the global economy is exhausted. The current oil-price rally is over and prices are heading toward $40 per barrel. Oil has been re-valued to affordable levels based on the real value of money. The market now accepts the erroneous producer claims of profitability below the cost of production and has adjusted expectations accordingly. Be careful of what you ask for.

Cleveland Cops Demand Emergency Suspension Of 'Open Carry' Ahead Of RNC

"An AR-15, a shotgun, multiple handguns. It's irresponsible of those folks -- especially right now -- to be coming downtown with open carry AR's or anything else. I couldn't care less if it's legal or not. We are constitutional law enforcement, we love the Constitution, support it and defend it, but you can't go into a crowded theater and scream fire. And that's exactly what they're doing by bringing those guns down there."

We've Entered An Era Of Rising Instability And Uncertainty

And there you have our future, visible in the 13th, 16th and 18th century price-revolution waves which preceded ours. It is hubris in the extreme to think we have somehow morphed into some new kind of humanity far different from those people who tore down the Bastille in a great frustrated rage at prices for energy and bread they could no longer afford.

With The S&P 140 Points From Its 2018 Year End Target, Goldman Is Confused

Goldman found itself in the confusing position of being far more bearish than its clients, predicting that the S&P will rise less than 150 points over the next two and a half years and has to explain the reasons behind its bearishness, as well as the reason why it expects a sharp 5-10% drawdown in the S&P in the coming months.

Pakistan's 'Kim Kardashian' Killed By Brother In Islamic "Honor Killing"

In Islamic countries, women are second class citizens if not much worse. If women step out of line, they are targeted, or killed. In Pakistan there are 1,000 “honor” killings every year. On July 15, top media star Qandeel Baloch was strangled by her own brother because of images Baloch posted on Facebook.

Murdered Baton Rouge Cop's Sister: "It's Coming To The Point Where No Lives Matter"

"I didn’t want to break down in church but it was just something I couldn’t hold... God gives nobody the right to kill and take another person’s life... It’s coming to the point where no lives matter."


by Joshua Krause, The Daily Sheeple:
Following the terror attack in Nice, France, CNN was caught labeling a survivor of the attack a “Trump Rampage Survivor.” However, that wasn’t the only subtle clue to come out this week, which would indicate that perhaps CNN is shilling hard for Hillary.
CNN reporter Brianna Keilar was covering one of Hillary’s speeches earlier this week, which focused on the recent high-profile shootings of black men by police. After speaking for a few moments, she mentioned the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which critics have said was a contributor to the incarceration of black Americans at disproportionate rates, and which was supported by people like the Clintons at the time. That’s when the reporter’s feed was abruptly (and conveniently) cut off.
