Rumors Of Thousands Of Police Surrounding Americans At Incirlik Air Base In Turkey – Again

There are reports that the police have shut down the entrances and exits to Incirlik air base where 1,500 U.S. soldiers are stationed. There are rumors that President Erdogan is shutting down another coup attempt – he accused us of collaborating with the military that allegedly attempted the coup, so this could be a precursor to an anti-American action by the despot.

From Sputnik News:

All inputs and outputs to the Incirlik Air Base located in Adana have been closed as Turkish Minister of European Affairs cautions that it is just a “safety inspection” while local newspapers speculate that a second coup attempt may be underway.

Some 7,000 armed police with heavy vehicles have surrounded and blocked the Incirlik air base in Adana used by NATO forces, already restricted in the aftermath of a failed coup. Unconfirmed reports say troops were sent to deal with a new coup attempt.

According to the Turkish Minister for European Affairs, Omar Celik, this is just a routine “safety inspection.” Hurriyet, by contrast, has raised concern that the closing may be tied to an attempt by the Erdogan regime to prevent a second coup attempt.

Incirlik Air Base, located in the province of Adana, is a critical NATO base in Turkey. The US maintains 50 to 90 tactical nuclear weapons at the base.

Local media has focused on the base after the failed coup in Turkey occurred the night of July 15. Although the main scenes of the events were Istanbul and Ankara, Incirlik was shut down  for a time by local authorities shortly after the putsch, and several Turkish soldiers from the base were deemed by Turkish officials to be involved in the overthrow attempt.

The lockdown at Incirlik follows a massive wave of protests on Thursday when pro-Erdogan nationalists took to the streets yelling “death to the US” and called for the immediate closure of the Incirlik base. Security personnel dispersed the protesters before they were able to make it to the base.

UPDATE Sunday 9:05 AM EST:

It looks like the official story is rather mundane, as Bloomberg explains:

Turkish authorities restored access to and from a key air base used in operations against Islamic State militants, local media reported on Sunday, one day before the U.S. top military official is scheduled to visit the country.

Incirlik air base in southern Turkey reopened following a meeting with security officials. Police used armored cars to block the gates earlier Sunday following intelligence that raised suspicion another coup was being plotted following the failed July 15 putsch, Ihlas News Agency reported, without saying where it got the information. The ban lasted four hours, the agency said.

Now the more extreme story might have happened here, but there’s very little evidence of it. It does appear that RT and Sputnik exaggerated their stories. Perhaps Putin was attempting to inflame emotions between Turkey and America. Which is certainly believable…

Here’s more from Stars and Stripes on what actually happened. 

UPDATE 9:35 PM EST:

Seeing a lot of conflicting stories, and rumors.

I’ve seen this reported a lot:

‪#‎Turkey‬ Turkish Minister says activity at ‪#‎Incirlik‬ is “general security check,” “nothing wrong there.” Armed “safety inspection” with protestors and large trucks blocking the roads in and out of the base in the middle of the night.

It could be that our media is being very circumspect to report while our government negotiates with Turkey, OR this is all being whipped up by the Russians, or the Turks, or both. I haven’t seen any new information worth reporting.

More from social media:

I’m seeing rumors that this is just a “rehearsal” and that things are back to normal. There’s also an account posting these videos of the Turkish people joining the police and chanting out side the American consulate:

A lot of the reporting is from Sputnik News and RT, both owned by Putin, so bear it with a grain of salt.

Michelle Obama Doubles Down On Liberal Re-Defining Of America’s Greatness From 2008

Donald DENIED!! Trump Begs Kochs For Cash After Tweeting He Didn’t Need It

The Koch Brothers are batting away demands from other donors that they meet with the Donald to discuss they’re possibly dumping money into his parade of idiocy.

From Politico:

Top Donald Trump donors tried to set up a meeting between the GOP presidential nominee and Charles Koch in Colorado Springs on Friday, but Koch aides rejected the entreaties, according to two Republicans with knowledge of the outreach.

Koch and his brother David Koch, who helm an influential network of advocacy groups and major conservative donors, have been sharply critical of Trump’s rhetoric and policy stances and have indicated they do not intend to support his campaign.

Here’s how the moron derided the billionaires he’s now begging money from:

More from Politico:

The billionaire industrialist Koch brothers, meanwhile, are being urged to reconsider their opposition to Trump by some of the donors in their network who are supporting the Manhattan tycoon, including Minnesota media mogul Stanley S. Hubbard and Dallas investor Ray Washburne, according to the two Republicans familiar with the outreach.

The Republicans, who travel in political finance circles, requested anonymity to discuss private talks. They said that the pro-Trump cohort had lobbied for a Friday meeting.

The Koch brothers and Trump are in town for separate events — Trump for a fundraiser, and the Kochs for the kickoff of the annual summer summit of their donor network at a tony resort in Colorado Springs.

But the Republicans familiar with the push said top Koch aides rejected the idea of a meeting.

“It is not going to happen,” said one of the Republicans, adding that the Kochs appear unlikely to back away from their repeated declarations that they don’t plan to spend any money in the presidential race, and will instead refocus their spending down ballot.

Washburne, who is helping to lead Trump’s fundraising effort, did not respond to requests for a comment. The Trump campaign also did not respond to a request for comment.

And here’s more of his stupid tweets:

Sorry Trumpy, maybe you should open up your stingy wallet and do what you promised you would do in the primary – fund your own damn campaign.

Trump BEGS Followers To Ignore Hillary Speech After Losing Ratings Game…

EL Trumpo doesn’t seem too happy with losing the ratings war to the Democrats.

About the only thing he cares about is seizing the spotlight in a stranglehold and never letting go because his daddy probably didn’t hug him enough when he was just a little dictator.

Here’s how he’s dealing with the grief:

Yup, he’s begging his followers to not watch the speech.

Something tells me thats not gonna work too well.

GUESS Which News Network Showed Guy In A TURBAN After Panetta Mentioned ‘Osama Bin Laden’!?

I was going back over some of the speeches tonight and I noticed something really funny – except it’s completely racist!!! A news network must have had their camera trained on the guy in the crowd in a turban for just the right moment…

BOOM!! LOL!!! That’s kinda raaaaacist.

Of course, we would expect this kind of racism out of Fox News, but NOPE, it came from leftist-aligned MSNBC!! LOL! I’m not the only one who noticed:

After Whining That Cruz Broke His ‘Solemn’ Pledge, Trump BEGS Bernie Sanders To Break His Pledge

Mike Pence Humiliated By Trump’s Schizophrenic Campaign… Again…

Alongside with Trump asking Russia to hack some more American politicians’ emails, he also humiliate Mike Pence with the announcement he put out:

You got that, Russia?! You can’t mess with America!!! There will be DIRE CONSEQUENCES.. oh wait. Dammit:

So of course, Pence was humiliated, again, by the bipolar leader of the GOP. He had to put out this statement:

Embarrassing. And it’s utterly humiliating to a guy that was known for his honesty before this. Like I said, his “rise” to VP under Trump is going to be a Greek tragedy:

Then they send out a spokeshole to lie about what Trump said:

No, actually he literally said that.

No, that’s another lie. He didn’t “clearly” say that, in fact he clearly said that he wanted them released to the media.

Then the infantile dimwit dreamed about what he would do if he had the power to hack emails:

Here’s the frightening truth about this election – we’re giving this authoritarian moron that exact power.

BREAKING!! Here’s How Trump Is PLOTTING To END TED CRUZ’s Political Career!!!

Woah! Trump Screwed Over The USA Freedom Girls!!!!

This is just amazing. Do y’all remember the “USA Freedom Girls” that sang a North Korea inspired song about Trump “crushing” his enemies? Well they got the full Trump treatment for their adoring loyalty, and now they’re SUING him!! LOL!!

Watch below:

El Scoopo at the Right Scoop esplains how the manager of the Freedom Girls, Jeff Popick, was forced to file a lawsuit against the cheet0-faced totalitarian:

Popick admits he didn’t have a contract with the Trump campaign, but said he was promised certain things from the campaign that never came to fruition.

For example, he told the Post that he had requested $2500 for their first performance, but accepted a counter-offer of having a table setup where they could sell their albums.

But when they got to their first act in Pensacola, the table was nowhere to be found.

After the act Popick tried to contact the campaign for alternate compensation, but was unable to get a hold of anyone.

At the charity event for veterans that Trump held in lieu of going to the Fox News debate, Popick says the group was invited to perform with only a day’s notice. But they flew to Iowa anyway, only to find out once they landed that they were no longer performing at the event, but were invited to be there.

The cost of the travel for the children and their parents, including hotels and rental cars, was all borne by Popick.

Again, he told the Washington Post, he tried to contact the campaign over and over to no avail. He even shared emails with the Washington Post showing his attempts to contact them and explained how staffers would promise to return his calls and never would.

So now Popick is suing to get the compensation he believes is rightfully his.

Like seriously you guys? The Trump campaign is willing to screw over these cute little girls just to save a buck and they don’t care how it looks for the election? Just amazing.

Here’s their performance to jog your memory:

If Trump is willing to screw over these cute little Trumpians, he’ll screw over anyone. INCLUDING YOU!!

Dumb Donald’s Speech Had LOWEST RATINGS Of A Nomination In Last 12 Years!!

Michelle Obama Doubles Down On Liberal Re-Defining Of America’s Greatness From 2008

Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic Convention is being praised up and down by everyone because she *finally* admitted America is actually a great country in a teary-eyed poignant moment meant to undermine Trump’s messaging.

But because she dragged it out so long, people are missing that she redefined what American’s greatness really is.

Watch what she says:

She specifically links America’s greatness to HILLARY being nominated. AND that American children are being indoctrinated into feminism. THAT’S what makes it great.

Here’s the transcript of her comments:

That is the story of this country, the story that has brought me to this stage tonight, the story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but who kept on striving and hoping and doing what needed to be done so that today I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves.

And I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women playing with their dogs on the White House lawn.

And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters and all our sons and daughters now take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States.

So, look, so don’t let anyone ever tell you that this country isn’t great, that somehow we need to make it great again. Because this right now is the greatest country on earth!

Sooooo, was America not great before that? Probably not in her eyes – consider the comment she made in 2008 that got her in trouble. She said that Barack Obama getting support for a nomination was the first time in her adult life that she was “proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.”.”

She’s simply reiterating what she believed in 2008 – America’s greatness depends on it supporting left-wing liberals. That’s it. 

And don’t ignore the constant race-baiting. If you’re able to swim through her breathless attempt at soaring rhetoric, she compares Hillary convincing her Wall Street donors that they should give her money to run for President again to the FIGHT AGAINST SLAVERY. No one notices because they’re just praising her up and down, but she made that exact comparison.

And finally, there’s this great observation by some guy on Twitter called @Mitrebox:

Fair point. It’s not about actually stamping out slavery. It’s about propagandizing the American public.

Triumph Of THE ‘WILL’!! A Word Cloud Visualization Of Trump’s Speech

FBI Believes RUSSIA Hacked DNC, Leaked Emails To DAMAGE Hillary And Help Trump!!

Hillary camp made the shocking accusations over the weekend and now the FBI is confirming that they also suspect Russia hacked the DNC and leaked emails through Wikileaks in order to damage Hillary and help Trump in the election!!

From the Daily Beast:

Did the Russian government hack the DNC to bring down Hillary Clinton? That’s the view that’s quickly emerging inside American intelligence and law enforcement agencies.
The FBI suspects that Russian government hackers breached the networks of the Democratic National Committee and stole emails that were posted to the anti-secrecy site WikiLeaks on Friday. It’s an operation that several U.S. officials now suspect was a deliberate attempt to influence the presidential election in favor of Donald Trump, according to five individuals familiar with the investigation of the breach.

The theory that Moscow orchestrated the leaks to help Trump, who has repeatedly praised Russian President Vladimir Putin and practically called for the end of NATO, is fast gaining currency within the Obama administration because of the timing of the leaks and Trump’s own connections to the Russian government, the sources said on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing and developing quickly.

And,

Current and former U.S. officials drew analogies to so-called “active measures campaigns,” or state-sponsored operations designed for political effects.

“The release of emails just as the Democratic National Convention is getting underway this week has the hallmarks of a Russian active measures campaign,” David Shedd, a former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told The Daily Beast. Shedd said that additional leaks were likely, echoing an opinion expressed by U.S. officials and experts who said that the release of emails on Friday may just be an opening salvo.

So, that’s kind of a big deal. And I’m betting we won’t do one damn thing about it because Obama is much too interesting in riding out his term without troubling himself with actually defending America.

Unfortunately, because of the recent decision by Director Comey to let Hillary off the hook, we must entertain the possibility that the FBI is merely saying this to give Hillary some cover in the election.

On the other hand, Donald Trump Jr. just went nuts when the accusation was made, calling it “the biggest lie” he’s ever heard:

Really? Methinks the Junior doth protest too much…

Trump Regrets Not Letting RNC Audience ‘RIP CRUZ OFF THE STAGE,’ ADMITS Speech Was Approved

The Donald is still licking his wounds and trying to patch up his thin skin after not being able to make Ted Cruz bow to his despotic rule at the Republican convention.

Now he’s saying that had he not stepped in, the crowd would have ripped Cruz off the stage, then says he wishes he had let them do it:

In his first interview since the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump said he prevented Ted Cruz from being ripped off the stage by entering Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena as hundreds of angry delegates lashed out at the Texas senator.

“You know what, he’s lucky I did it,” Trump told Bloomberg Politics’ Co-Managing Editor Mark Halperin in an interview to air Sunday night on Showtime’s “The Circus.” The interview was conducted midday Friday on a flight from Cleveland to New York on one of Trump’s private planes.

“I walked in and the arena went crazy. Because there’s great unity in the Republican Party and people don’t know it.” Trump said. “Had I not walked in, I think that audience would have ripped him off the stage. I think I did him a big favor.”

When asked point blank if he entered the arena at the conclusion of Cruz’s speech on Wednesday to “tweak” his former primary rival, Trump responded: “Tweak him? I would never do a thing like that. But yes.”

He also second guessed the decision to enter, saying, “In retrospect, I wish I would have waited another minute. Because he was being booed right off the stage.”

This is probably all a lie by an infantile lout who has to keep proving to others and himself that he always has the upper hand on everyone.

And he admits, even though his team went out and LIED about it right after the snub, that they knew exactly what Cruz was going to say:

Trump said his campaign had approved the speech. “When I first read it, I said you know what, first of all it’s not a very good speech. This is not very exciting. Second of all, let’s throw him out.”

Trump later changed his mind, concluding that it would be “a bigger deal if we throw him out than if he reads it and doesn’t endorse, what difference does it make?”

It if didn’t make a difference then why did they lie about it?

That’s what they were saying right after Cruz left the stage to damage him, but when that didn’t work they began to say they don’t care.

They’re like whiny little children who pout, “whatever, I didn’t want a puppy anyway” when their parents didn’t get them what they wanted. Pretty pathetic.

Anti-Semitic Alt-Right Celebrates After @WikiLeaks Blames The Jews In Now Deleted Tweet

The official Wikileaks account posted what looks like a tweet saying that their critics are all Jews:

The racist white supremacists Trump supporters on Twitter who call themselves “alt-right” are celebrating – they know that the tweet is in reference to Jews:

I found the link to the deleted tweet, to make sure it was from the account:

https://twitter.com/wikileaks/status/756987256276131840

The tweet won’t pop up because it’s deleted, but that’s the link for it. When you search on Twitter for that link, you see alt-right maggots laughing about it:

Those are the few accounts that saw the tweet before it was immediately deleted.

The alt-right started using parenthesis to “tag” people that were Jewish, or those that “sympathized” with Jews. So some people started doing it purposely to their profile names to show up the bigots.

They know exactly what it means when Wikileaks references it:

A lot of people believe Wikileaks is just an espionage operation by the Russians, who don’t shy away from anti-Semitism either.

And this all on the day that Wikileaks is destroying Hillary and the DNC with a document dump right before their convention, which helps Trump.

I’m sure it’s all a coincidence.

‘The Most DESTRUCTIVE And IDIOTIC Statement On Foreign Policy In My Lifetime! – Ralph Peters

After Whining That Cruz Broke His ‘Solemn’ Pledge, Trump BEGS Bernie Sanders To Break His Pledge

El Trumpo went on a TrumperTantrum attack on Pocahontas and Bernie Sanders this morning, demanding that the aged socialist turn on Hillary for rigging the election against him:

What’s weird is that just yesterday the Donald and his dim-witted allies where whining incessantly that Cruz had broken his “solemn” and “sacred” pledge to support the nominee no matter how stupid, authoritarian, dangerous, and damaging to the country and the Constitution he might be. But wait a minute – Bernie Sanders ALSO pledged to support Hillary if she won. What happened to HIS “sacred” and “solemn” pledge?

Yet again, words have no meaning. They’re just weapons to be employed in order to get this extremist infant into power.

As to Cruz breaking his pledge, he never said by WHEN to endorse Trump. He may still do it by election day. But let’s say he doesn’t. It WOULD be breaking a pledge, but doesn’t he have a higher pledge to honor his wife, and to honor his father? When you have two obligations of honor that are in conflict, you go with the higher one. I think that’s what he’s doing. And I don’t have a problem with that, especially since the cheeto-faced idiot kept threatening to break his own pledge over and over.

You HAVE TO See This Pic Of The TRUMPS As Ted Cruz SNUBBED The Donald!! LOL!!

BREAKING!! Here’s How Trump Is PLOTTING To END TED CRUZ’s Political Career!!!

We knew it was coming – this morning’s absurdly childish and infantile outburst from the cheeto-faced moron signaled that Ted Cruz has really gotten under his thin skin and he wasn’t about to let it go.

Well here’s what he’s planning to do about it:

Donald Trump plans to create and fund super-PACs specifically aimed at ending the political careers of Ted Cruz and John Kasich should either run for office again, after both snubbed the Republican nominee during his party’s convention this week, a source familiar with Trump’s thinking told Bloomberg Politics on Friday.

The plan would involve Trump investing millions of his own money –perhaps $20 million or more — in one or two outside groups about six months before their respective election days if Texas Senator Cruz or Ohio Governor Kasich stand for office again. The source said Trump is willing to set up two separate super-PACs – one for Cruz and one for Kasich – and put millions into each.

This is fascinating – for months the Trumpendejos have been assaulting us with the idiotic jibe “if you only fought Hillary as much as you fought Trump we’d be winning!” Well now it looks like this orange-faced idiot is going to waste his resources going after Republicans!!!

More:

The source said that Trump would be willing to invest tens of millions more if necessary to ensure his former competitors didn’t win another race. Of course, the ire that Trump has exhibited in the aftermath of the bitter nomination contest could fade over time, leading the sometimes mercurial billionaire to drop the plans.

The source said that despite another former nomination rival Jeb Bush skipping the national convention and refusing to back the Republican nominee, Trump “does not care” about doing the same against Bush because the former Florida governor is already “destroyed.”
What a childish idiot. And what makes us think that he would be any better with the full power of the federal government behind him? This is obscene and pathetic – just what we’ve come to expect from the authoritarian dimwit.

Dumb Donald’s Speech Had LOWEST RATINGS Of A Nomination In Last 12 Years!!

The RATINGS are in!!! And for all the bragging that the Donald does, he was just not able to bring the viewers!!

In fact, not only did the cheeto-faced toupee-topped totalitarian lose the ratings race to Mitt Romney, but he had the LOWEST ratings EVER!!! Or at least the last 12 years.

Wow. That is pretty pathetic. I mean NO previous GOP candidate had made it his goal to have high ratings, and they all beat out the Donald. And consider that in all that time, the population of the country has been GROWING, so the margin of defeat is even greater!! AND also consider that all those other conventions didn’t have the high drama that this one had!

SAD!!!

Of course the Trumpendejos are going to say none of this matters, and in a way they’re right – this isn’t how elections are won anyway. BUT it’s very embarrassing to the orange-visaged vulgarian when he specifically said he would deliver high ratings!! What a marooon.
