Recep Erdogan

An attempted military coup is underway in Istanbul, Turkey, where martial law has been declared. Earlier, the Turkish armed forces announced it had taken "full control" of the government.

Turkish military officials have been jailed, and the armed forces shut down social media networks including Facebook, Twitter.com, and Youtube.com.

President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, who is away on vacation, urged the people to go out into the streets in violation of the curfew to resist the military coup.

President Erdo?an used his iPhone's FaceTime app to speak to the people.

“There is no power higher than the power of the people,” he said.

Turkish military blocked two bridges and a road to the airport. Gunshots can be heard in footage of crowds near the military headquarters at the capital city of Ankara. People are seen climbing on military tanks.

Fox News reports there are civilian casualties.

The U.S. military and other NATO allies use the Turkish airbase to launch airstrikes on ISIS strongholds in Syria.

If there is a coup underway, the U.S. military must leave the airbase. U.S. policy states the military can't interfere in a country that is in the middle of a coup.

According to Fox News, the U.S. provides billions of dollars in weapons and ammunition to Turkey. It is unknown if those weapons are being turned on the people.

    This is what happens when you let in "refugees" and there are terrorist among them. I feel bad for the US because it is only a matter of time, before this or a similar occurrence happens on US soil. These people (not just "muslims") infiltrate all levels of government which is scary. I don't agree with a lot of what Trump is saying but I must agree that we must close the borders this is frightening.

  • Empress

    This is what happens when you routinely conspire with Western Nations to try and control the natural resources of other countries through a series of overt and covert military actions often using religion as a smoke screen. Racist, bullying, and imperialist policies are at the heart of most discontent, mayhem, and violence in the world right now, including "terrorism". there is no bigger terrorists than Western Nations. We are finally having to deal with what other countries have been dealing with for decades. People would be in their own Countries praising their own Gods and minding their own damn business if America and her allies were not historically chopping up the World's resources like pie and splitting it among them.

    The "terrorist" that come for us don't look white half the time they use people that look like you to bring you down. The US have trained opps/terrorist/snipers young men some teens from other countries here on US soil right now that they have granted their families an asylum in exchange for these young guys lives. They train them in covert operations, and these men carry out attacks and executions etc. My only hope is that closing the boarders will stop or slow down the government from recruiting; because what most of you don't understand is that the "refugee" admittance into the US is a smoke screen a cover up. Oliver North finally told the truth after being the governments liar, read up on the US agreement with Albert Hakim (Iranian), Kay Griggs was married to one of the governments "elite" working under General Joy.

    Turkish helicopter lands in Greece, 8 men request asylum: Greek Officials

    A Turkish helicopter carrying eight men landed in Alexandroupoli, Greece (close to the Turkish border), after issuing a distress signal due to a mechanical failure, according to a statement from the Greek government spokeswoman Olga Gerovasili.

    The men were met at the airport by police, the statement continues, and were taken to the local police station. At the police station, the men requested political asylum, and that request is being considered, according to the statement, which went on to say that the helicopter will also be returned to Turkish authorities.

    In response to this news, Turkey’s Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, tweeted that Turkey has “requested the immediate surrender of 8 heinous soldiers who escaped to Greece with a helicopter.”

She said there were places around the city with prayer mats already laid out, so when the bells rang people could pray.Her and her friend went around Istanbul, went shopping, sight seeing, took pictures. People were friendly, taking pictures with them and the snowmen being built. This is Faux news.They post fake videos and stories. They posted a video from Venezuela and said it was from the Baltimore riots. They LIE.All news lies, but Faux news really doesn't get any of my attention.

    "There is no higher authority than the self." <--Thank you for writing this wisdom. Many people have been DUPED to transfer their SELF-AUTHORITY to EXTERNAL AUTHORITY (government and religion) which makes one vulnerable to abuse, mistreatment, control and genocide. There is no SELF-ACCOUNTABILITY under EXTERNAL AUTHORITY.

    Governments are CORPORATIONS which, under LEGAL FICTION, is a PERSON which has the same and more rights than your animated cellular composition. If we deem ourselves to be competent and intelligent, how can the DEAD have authority over the LIVING? Religion is a CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE. Always has been. Always will be. It is infuriating how our thinking has been corrupted and derailed from SELF.

    Engaging natural forces is what our [BLACK] physiology is designed to do. This is how we [BLACKS] restore SELF-AUTHORITY and INTERNAL SUPREMACY.

    Those [BLACKS] who embrace the pathological acculturisms of CAUCASIANS do so at their own peril. They will NEVER heal or fully recover under the helm of WHITE PATHOLOGY. Caucasoid languages and thinking don't synchronize with AfRAkan cellular frequencies and expand intelligence.

    We are for WHOM we have been waiting.

I don't like how the article "attacked" him for going overseas. He's absolutely right, the American system, as well as the foreign system I'm sure can be very strenuous.

    I totally understand what your going through with bs ass doctors. I've had stomach issues for years - many doctors suggested surgery and a colostomy bag. If hubby didn't work for a gastroenterologist - I would took their advice just to stop hurting. 1 freaking procedure! Just one 30 minute ERCP found a extra duct in my pancreas. Solution: Prevacid daily.? I was about to get mutilated listening to no less than 6 doctors in different practices. If you have any one you trust in the medical field, please talk with them if you can. It seems if these doctors don't have a personal relationship with you - they only care about how much the treatment/diagnoses can line their pockets.?

  • DivineMsM

    Yes, there are!!! and he got one of each.
    lol, It is cost prohibitive. Hence, when my doc was talking about egg storage and the monthly payment. I looked at her like, umm yeah, you know what I'll wing it, lol.
    If it came to be, I would definitely go abroad. Vice did a Doc on surrogacy in India (wasn't glowing, but it offers an option). A co-worker, and his partner did it twice via a surrogacy in India.
    The surrogacy minefield is not for the faint of heart.

I really don't know what to think/do right now. I'm supposed to go overseas in a few weeks but my mother is dying. My mother and I was supposed to go to Costa Rica next week...she had been walking and trying to strengthen her body for the trip. I can stay home until the end of next week then I have to get back home. My sis will be here for two weeks. Taking it one day at a time because that's all you can do anyway.

    I know you've probably heard this a dozen times since your mom became ill, but please put your faith and trust in God's plan. I don't know what is causing her blood lost, but I have been there before. Collapsed at work and received a blood transfusion while in the ICU. Miracles happen everyday, Audit. If I were you I would contact the airline company for your tickets and have them issue you a credit or see if they can postpone your itinerary. Even without travel insurance, airline companies will work with you. Explain the situation. Since the trip date is still a few weeks out, you have time to cancel your hotel without charge. You already have leave of absence from work for the trip?...use that to be with your mom. God bless you and your family. Stay strong, Audit.

    nothing is going to happen we go through these swings every now and again. You just have instant knowledge of the world events and sometimes it can be overwhelming

    I read somewhere that this is common practice, has happened before, will probably happen again.

  • That’s Interesting

    This all started with Zimmerman getting away with cold blooded murder, then it all escalated, the killings and our frustration. They thought trials would be enough, knowing we wouldn't get justice. Blame Florida, blame the US, blame stand your ground laws. No justice, no peace.

  • Wayup!

    Basically...Martial Law is already here and been in place for a min....anytime a Philly cop can "stop and frisk"
    you at anytime with no probable cause is letting me know its infiltrated the system already. ..

  • LordeAmbler

    i agree people kill me talking about it speaks of our last days in revelations as if revelations is a current event. These things been going on. The problem is We need order otherwise we gonna see all type of human surface just because there is a shake of the order. I dont want women and children to end up being the victims cause you know thats whats gonna happen.

  • mocha brown

    First Turkey then us.... Martial law is coming.... Hope you are ready

    I speak healing in your mother's body all the way down to the root, in Jesus name and I expose the open door and slam in shut in Jesus name.
    By HIS stripes she were healed, in Jesus name.

    "there's nothing wrong with feeling weak & helpless"
    Absolutely, just do not get stuck in it and be around people who will SUPPORT you and allow you to be sad for however long.

  • side_i

    Yes of course. Just saying you don't have to be strong all the time.

  • MzFutureLCSW

    Oh, yeah. I understood what you meant. I was just adding my 2 cents.
