Ankara residents react as Turkey’s state of emergency comes into effect

22 July 2016

The atmosphere on Thursday morning in Ankara, on the day Turkey’s three-month state of emergency came into effect, was more sombre than it was the previous night.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Arrest warrants against 42 Turkish journalists

Today, 09:52

The Turkish authorities have issued arrest warrants against 42 journalists, the commercial broadcaster NTV reported. Among those who are to be arrested is a well-known political commentator, former parliamentarian Nazli Ilicak. She has been critical of [President] Erdogan and his campaign against the Gülen movement, which, according to Erdogan, caused the failed coup of July 15th.

The Turkish government in the aftermath has cracked down on more than 60,000 people that are accused of supporting the coup attempt. These are soldiers, police officers, judges, teachers, university lecturers, civil servants and journalists.

The coup attempt was rather ham-fisted. However, even the most stupid military coup plotter will not ever involve over 60,000 judges, teachers, university lecturers, civil servants and journalists in his plans.

They were arrested, fired, dismissed from active service or a judicial investigation has been initiated against them.
Death penalty

Erdogan said that the reintroduction of the death penalty is conceivable. That caused much international criticism of Turkey.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Resigns, Sanders Fans React

From United States Representative Alan Grayson from Florida:

Weaponizing religion

A couple of weeks ago, my Communications Director asked me whether I had dual citizenship with Israel. I told him no. And I well recalled that a few months ago, Democratic Party operatives spread the same rumor about Bernie Sanders – and had it sprung on Sen. Sanders, without warning, on national TV.

Your party dollars, at work. Those flaks and hacks have no clue about how to defeat Republicans, but they sure do love that blue-on-blue action.

Blue is the colour of the Democratic party.

They even go so far as to weaponize religion. Like asking whether Bernie Sanders and I are dual citizens with Israel, because we are Jewish. Or planting a question to try to make it seem that Sanders is an atheist, as we found out that they did from WikiLeaks yesterday.

Oy gevalt. God forbid that we should ever have a debate on what’s best for the American people.

Don’t let these scummy party flaks and hacks get away with it. Contribute to our campaign so that we can blow past these cheap attacks, and put another good progressive in the US Senate.

Here’s another example from Wikileaks: Democratic Party operatives tried to plant the story that the Sanders campaign was falling apart. And – lo and behold! – we had exactly the same story planted against us last year, because two campaign staffers left the campaign and one shifted to part-time – over the course of four months!

One reporter told me that he was getting five calls a day from my “Democratic” opponent’s staff, dishing dirt on me. Starting a year ago. (The word “Democratic” is in scare quotes because my primary opponent is really a Republican masquerading as a Democrat – a fact that our corrupt party Establishment actually embraces.)

Of course, the party’s brutal interference in our race isn’t limited to disseminating lies. They’re spending a cool million dollars to try to defeat us – even though we’re doing better in the November polls than the callow tool who they’re desperately trying to drag across the finish line.

It comes down to this – whose party is it? I say that it’s Ours, not Theirs. Are you with me?

Our primary is barely a month away. Please contribute to our “It’s Our Party” fund, and help us to victory.

Courage,

Rep. Alan Grayson
