Turkey to Trigger European Financial Crisis as Lira Hits Terrifying Low, ECB Gives Warning

TURKEY has hit a fresh financial crisis which could cause a chaos across the eurozone after the lira plummeted to a record low.

One US dollar bought 5.57 lira during evening trading yesterday with the troubled currency plummeting five percent in one day.

Investors questioned the ability of newly elected President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s to prevent the nation’s deepening financial turmoil spiralling further out of control.

The slump of the lira, which has lost a dangerous 30 percent of its value since the start of 2018, has triggered the presentation of a new economic plan by the country’s finance minister and son-in-law of President Erdogan, Berat Albayrak.

#CommiePrivilege: ANTIFA Professor Eric Clanton Sentenced to Probation

Diablo Valley College Professor Eric Clanton received three years probation after being charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon during a rally in Berkeley on April 15, 2017. According to police documents, Clanton was accused of hitting seven different people on the head with his bike lock.

Eric Clanton is a hard-left anarchist. He was literally a speaker at the so-called “ 1st Annual Anarchism, Crime, and Justice Conference” in March 2016 held at Fort Lewis College (FLC) in Durango, Colorado. Eric Clanton’ s Lecture was “ Restorative Justice: Between Radical Alternative and Reformist Strategy.”

9/11: The Key to Restore Freedom in America

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. — Beatrice Evelyn Hall

Today’s America is a highly divided country. It seems that, suddenly, we strongly disagree about everything, even the most simple, mundane things. — From opponents, who at least were able to discuss our opinions in an amicable, civilized way, we have changed into fierce enemies incapable of understanding, much less accepting other people’s divergent points of view.

The thing that divides us most, however, is not that some of us are Democrats and other Republicans. Not even that some of us are conservatives and some are progressives. The current attacks by coercive utopians at Google/Youtube, Facebook, Apple Pinterest, Spotify, Twitter, AudioBoom, Disqus and others on the freedom of expression of Alex Jones, who is repeatedly described as a conspiracy theorist who thinks that 9/11 was an inside job, and also Pastor James David Manning, a strong critic of Obama and the New World Order, are based on allegations of hate speech.

But hate speech is a tag the “progressive” lefties have also attached to President Trump. In the San Francisco Bay Area, the sign “STOP HATE” posted on the door of a home or a business actually means “WE HATE TRUMP.”

It is difficult, however, to understand why the same people who never raised an eyebrow after seeing a so-called comedian displaying a papier mache representation of President’s Trump decapitated head, who have published dozens of caricatures depicting President Trump assassinated — a recent cover for The New Yorker magazine shows a dead Trump after falling off an escalator —, or have encouraged people to see a play where Trump is assassinated, now claim that they are against all manifestations of hate. It is obvious that, to these people, “hate” is anything that goes against their convictions, ideas and beliefs about subjects such as global warming, evolution, abortion, sexuality, immigration, firearms possession or the New World Order.

The report adds that the Facebook CEO “got personally engaged” and “discussed Infowars at length with other executives,” while speculating that Jones may have wanted to get banned to get media attention.

Cops Post Mugshots of ANTIFA Rioters, Liberals Freak Out

Oops, the left is upset. Some leftists lambasted the Berkeley PD because they outed violent Antifas goons arrested Sunday by posting the mugshots of those arrested, along with their names, and the alleged crimes for which they were arrested. A practice that is not unusual for the Berkeley PD. These leftist are claiming that the cops were looking to arrest only the Antifa gangs during the protests when actually the cops were looking to arrest only the violent protesters.

Document Bombshell Reveals Explosive Info on Obama Regime’s Attempts to Take Over Russia Scam

SOLOMON:

I’m putting finishing touches on a column that I think will come out tomorrow. And it will reveal two really important things.

The efforts to begin targeting and reaching out to Trump campaign officials to gain intelligence on Russia that would ultimately justify the investigation began weeks and maybe months before the FBI had a formal predicate. And that’s very important the rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The investigation is July 31, 2016. My sources and documents that I will be able to make public tomorrow will show that there were contacts going on by people identified as informers, informants, people who provided information began much, much earlier than July 31st. That’s the first part.

The second part is as the investigation was just starting to ramp up there are internal FBI documents showing FBI agents talking about the White House trying to take over the investigation. Fears that the Justice Department were going to leak for political reasons and their own personal fear…

Hannity interrupts at this point and then Solomon goes on to say that the Obama White House was involved in this sham.

Donald Trump Will be ‘Last President’ of the United States — Shock New Claims

DONALD Trump will be the “last President” of the United States but has “no intention of leaving the White House” and likes the thought of being President for life, one American filmmaker has warned.

Michael Moore implied the President is desperate to hold on to his job for as long as possible.

Speaking to the Huffington Post, the 64-year old said: “Donald Trump is an even genius; he has no intention of leaving the White House.

“Whenever he hears that another country has a President for life he perks up and thinks ‘I like the sound of that.’“

Mr Moore was speaking ahead of his new film, Fahrenheit 11/9.

Kiss Your Internet Good-Bye

by Servando Gonzalez

Initially, the powerful media giants, both in printed and TV form, ignored the Internet as a curiosity or a passing fad. But sites like the Drudge Report, NewsMax, or WorldNetDaily, just to mention a few of the most successful, soon began attracting more and more readers, while newspapers like the New York Times, the Washington Post or the Los Angeles Times began losing theirs. Soon after, the big TV networks experimented their own dramatic loss of viewers.

Faced with the strong, unexpected competition, the media giants joined the Internet bandwagon, but they were in for a big surprise. Contrary to the traditional printed media and TV, where money plays a cardinal role — only the very rich can afford to hire the qualified personnel and promote and market the product — the Internet seems to be a pure product of the human intellect. As the extraordinary success of the Drudge Report indicates, most people don’t visit a site because it has a fancy design or is professionally made, but because it is a place where they can find provoking, non-mainstream ideas that make them think; exactly the type of thinking they were not able to find in the orchestrated, self-censored mainstream media. Consequently, a site made by a housewife right from her kitchen in Hot Springs, Arkansas, or by an almost unknown journalist from his home office in Oregon or Florida, can compete on equal footing with the New York Times. This is exactly how extraordinarily successful sites like the Drudge Report and WorldNetDaily were born. Like the Colt .44 in the Old West, the Internet became the great equalizer.

But the people who control the media monopoly were not going to see their power challenged without a fight. After their initial skepticism and scorn, and their failed attempts to extend their media monopoly to the Internet, they began a subtle process of infiltration…

The Internet has become a growing obstacle to their plans.

Therefore, what will they do? Very simple: They will destroy it. The only solution to solve the Internet’s growing challenge to the media monopoly is to shut it down and throw the key away.

How it will happen?

Liberal Professor Warns Censorship of Infowars Will Backfire on the Left

Professor Erik Nielson warns in a New York Times op-ed that the kind of censorship that saw Infowars banned from most major social media platforms this week will eventually backfire on the left.

In an article entitled If We Silence Hate Speech, Will We Silence Resistance?, Nielson, who is an associate professor of liberal arts at the University of Richmond, writes that “mounting pressure from the political left to censor hateful speech may have unintended consequences.”

Man Solicited Hitman to Kill ICE Agents, Wanted John McCain’s Throat Slit

When does the derangement end? Federal officials are reporting that a Massachusetts man was arrested in New York after he allegedly user Twitter to search for a hitman to kill ICE agents. Of course, he wasn’t successful because he only offered $500, but we’ve seen people do things for less money that were quite questionable, right Stormy Daniels? Regardless, the man wanted to pay someone $500 to kill some ICE agents and he also had another demented desire. He wanted to see John McCain’s throat slit. Even though a lot of people don’t like McCain and have even called him a traitor, but the people surely wouldn’t call for violence because we’re on the more reasonable side of politics here. Dislike whomever we want, but always remain civil. That’s something we’re good at, I hope.

The outcome of the arrest is that Brandon Ziobrowski was charged with several crimes based on what he allegedly did. His crimes also raise more awareness to the unrest coming from the left side of politics who have seemed to embrace a more violent nature than they’ve had in the past. Trump winning the election has triggered them for two years and people should be aware of this and call out the unacceptable actions done by many.

The Berkeley Police Department has come under fire from local professors who are worried that posting Antifa mugshots on twitter could cause a back lash from conservatives. We find that ironic since it’s the Antifa anarchists who are instigating violence against the right in the first place.

Why would we come after them? We find them pitiful. They are not worth the trouble.

While our economy is churning along and it’s win after win for President Trump, these goons are continuously attempting violence and unrest….BUT they call us fascists?

Sen. Feinstein’s Chinese Chauffeur/Spy Scandal is Tip of the Democrat Iceberg

It was revealed last week that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)’s driver for 20 years was a Chinese spy. But it was discovered five years ago by the FBI and never disclosed until Politico and San Francisco Chronicle uncovered it. Now more questions are being raised not only about the spy but about Feinstein’s closeness to the Chinese.

Feinstein’s driver also represented her at various functions and acted as a liaison to the Chinese community. Although the FBI advised her five years ago, it wasn’t made public and the driver was allowed to quietly retire. He was never arrested. Neither the FBI or Feinstein ever informed or questioned her staff about him or what they might know. And presumably, that means they also didn’t check other staff to see if anyone else had been compromised.

This raises lots of questions. The excuse for not charging him was it was judged he hadn’t passed anything top secret to the Chinese. But he had passed information to them. So why was he never charged? Even for failing to register as a foreign agent? Why is he still not being named?

And why hasn’t this been picked up by the national media? “Because the news media are more interested in sabotaging the Trump presidency than reporting on foreign spies working for Democratic Party leaders. That puts the Deep State in a defensive position rather than their usual offensive strategy against President Trump and the conservatives,” a former assistant district attorney said.

“This [Awan] case will most probably end up the way the Democratic National Committee’ Muslim Awan brothers case failed to materialize,” said Jeffrey Lankas, a former federal prosecutor.

The justices are also accused of “wasteful spending of taxpayer funds on lavish office renovations,” using public vehicles for personal matters and creating a plan to pay certain senior judges more than is lawful, the committee said.

Sex Toys Cause Closure of German Airport Terminal

Employees at the airport were conducting routine X-rays of luggage when they spotted “suspicious content in a luggage piece,” according to the federal police in Berlin.

Because it was unclear from the initial scan what the bag contained, an alert was issued shortly before 11 a.m., resulting in the closure of the airport’s D terminal while police investigated the suspicious items.

The owner of the bag was called over the airport speaker system and eventually talked to police about his luggage.

However, he was reluctant to properly explain the contents of the bag — possibly because of embarrassment, according to a federal police spokesperson — saying instead that his luggage contained “technical stuff…

Caroline Glick: Corbyn’s portents for Israel and Western Jewry

If the current violence between Israel and the Hamas terrorist regime in Gaza escalates into a full-scale war, one thing is certain. The main thoroughfares of the West’s great cities will be filled with thousands of protesters marching in support for Hamas and its strategic goal of annihilating Israel.

The anti-Israel demonstrations this time around will dwarf all those that preceded them.

We also know with mathematical certainty that Jewish institutions and Jews will be violently assaulted from London to Melbourne, Paris to San Francisco.

Every public demonstration in support of Israel, indeed, every public demonstration of Judaism, including Jewish people walking to synagogue on Shabbat — will become a focal point for attacks.

We also know with absolute certainly that just as the violent assaults against Jews in the West during Operation Protective Edge in 2014 dwarfed the attacks from earlier wars, so the violence directed against Jews and Jewish institutions in Europe and the US in the next war will dwarf all that preceded it.

We know that the anti-Israel demonstrations will be bigger and violence against Jews more widespread now than in the past because over the past four years, leftist antisemitism has grown in scope and extremism throughout the Western world.

Hatred of Jews, based in a rejection of Israel’s right to exist and expressed first and foremost through the demonization of Israel’s supporters as racists, has become more widespread. Its expressions have become more extreme and more violent.

Consider the situation in Britain. Last month, US President Donald Trump paid a visit to the US’s closest ally. The Red-Green alliance of the Left and the Muslims was beside itself. Its queer, feminist, jihadist and animal rights members banded together to organize a major demonstration against Trump in London.

As British Jewish writer and activist David Collier documented on his website, two aspects of the demonstrations stood out. First the marchers weren’t against Trump. They were anti-American.

As far as they were concerned, Trump is just a manifestation of America’s inherent evilness. His predecessor Barack Obama was also terrible.

The second notable aspect of the supposedly anti-Trump, Red-Green rally in London was the prevalence of anti-Israel messages. Collier posted videos of crowds at every corner happily shouting out chants calling for Israel to be destroyed, (“From the River to the Sea, Palestine will be Free,”) and supporting Hamas, (“From Palestine to Mexico, racist walls have got to go!”).

It’s worth asking how the protesters at an anti-Trump rally naturally gravitated towards anti-American and antisemitic messages.

Why did the people who supposedly hate Trump snap up “Free Gaza” stickers like hotcakes? What possesses British feminists to support a jihadist regime that routinely attacks Israel for no reason and treats women like property?

The answer is simple enough. They aren’t thinking. They are following…

Saudis Appear to Threaten Canada With 9/11-Style Attack

Graphic warning follows feud over human rights

Saudi Arabia’s state media on Monday tweeted a graphic appearing to show an Air Canada airliner heading toward the Toronto skyline in a way that recalled the September 11, 2001, terrorist hijackings of airliners that struck the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.

The graphic warned of “Sticking one’s nose where it doesn’t belong!” and included the text: “As the Arabic saying goes: ‘He who interferes with what doesn’t concern him finds what doesn’t please him.’“

Last week, Global Affairs Canada tweeted that it was “gravely concerned” about a new wave of arrests in the kingdom targeting women’s rights activists and urged their immediate release. Saudi Arabia has expelled Canada’s ambassador and frozen all new trade and investment with Ottawa in response to the criticism.

Death by Entitlement

On August 7, the New York Times ran a story by Rukmini Callimachi about Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, a young American couple, both graduates of Georgetown University, who decided to quit their humdrum office jobs and go on an epic bike ride and camping trip that would take them all over the world. “I’ve grown tired of spending the best hours of my day in front of a glowing rectangle, of coloring the best years of my life in swaths of grey and beige,” Austin wrote. “I’ve missed too many sunsets while my back was turned.”

So in July of last year, they flew from Washington, D.C., to Cape Town, and from there bicycled through South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, and Malawi to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. From there, they flew to Cairo, and after seeing the pyramids flew on to Casablanca, from which they cycled through Morocco, Spain, France, Monaco, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Greece, to Turkey. From there, another flight took them to Kazakhstan. They biked through Kyrgyzstan and entered Tajikistan. It was in that country that their journey came to an abrupt end this past July 29, when five ISIS members deliberately plowed their car into the two adventurers, killing them along with two temporary cycling companions, one from Switzerland and the other from the Netherlands. “Two days later,” wrote Callimachi, “the Islamic State released a video showing five men it identified as the attackers, sitting before the ISIS flag. They face the camera and make a vow: to kill ‘disbelievers.’“

Austin, a vegan who worked at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Geoghegan, a vegetarian who worked in a college admissions office, were both 29 years old — old enough, one would think, to have some idea of just how dangerous a route they had mapped out.

‘I’ll Raid You, White Trash’: Australians Told to Lock Doors as Africans Rampage in Melbourne

Police in Melbourne have been slammed for making no arrests after residents of the city’s north-west suburbs were terrorised by gangs of African youths who bragged “police can’t touch us” and branded frightened families “racist”.

Despite its sending dozens of armed officers in riot gear to Taylors Hill as more than 100 teenagers gathered “for war”, and telling residents to “stay inside and lock their doors” as rival gangs ran amok, police claimed there had been “no threat to community safety”.

Global Human Trafficking Now a $32 Billion Industry

According to the head of one of France’s most prominent asylum seeker support organisations, the global network of human traffickers which aid migrants across borders into Europe and elsewhere constitute a $32 billion (£25bn) industry.

“It is absolutely necessary to crack these various networks that thrive on the misery and credulity of a certain number of people and it is to be hoped that the victims will be protected,” Pierre Henry, director general of the asylum seeker support association Terre d’Asile, said.

Matteo Salvini: Controlling Immigration ‘The Only Antidote to Racism’

Uncontrolled immigration “leads to chaos, racism, and social conflict,” said Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini in an interview on Friday, whereas the “only antidote to racism” is regulated migration.

Orderly immigration “guarantees the rights of both Italians and immigrants,” Salvini told La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana in an extensive interview, unlike the unchecked immigration of the past few years, which has resulted in “chaos.”

Americans Are Begging the Government and Corporations to End Free Speech

This week, internet giants like Facebook, Youtube, Spotify and others banned the notorious Alex Jones and InfoWars from their platforms, and the purge is enjoying widespread support among the left, which has made a reputation for itself as intolerant of differing opinions (last year, for example, a group of Antifa protesters beat one of our own Anti-Media reporters and destroyed his camera equipment at a rally simply because he was filming).

In Jones’ case, Facebook cited hate speech, though this stance seems inconsistent considering the platform has caught flack for allowing anti-semitic content. This lack of principle doesn’t matter to many left-wing partisans, though, as long as someone they find reprehensible is silenced — even as others with far better reputations are banned from other platforms (to clarify, Anti-Media does not endorse Infowars in any way, nor do we consider them to be a legitimate news outlet).

California Legislature Wants ‘Gender Diversity’ on Every Corporate Board

California’s Democrat-dominated legislature is moving to require “gender diversity” on the boards of publicly-held companies, which would have to appoint individuals self-identifying as female.

In May, the California State Senate passed SB 826 on a party-line vote. The bill mandates that by the last day of 2019, California’s 445 publicly-held companies must pay a fine unless they have at least one female — defined as “an individual who self-identifies her gender as a woman, without regard to the individual’s designated sex at birth.”

By the last day of 2021 — if the bill becomes law — California corporate boards with five or fewer directors must have a quota of at least two self-identifying females. Corporations with six or more board members must have at three least self-identifying females to avoid a fine.

Methods of Control: Technology Given to the Public vs. The Real State of Technology

“It seems to me that the nature of the ultimate revolution with which we are now faced is precisely this: That we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy who have always existed and presumably will always exist to get people to love their servitude.”

— Aldous Huxley, Berkeley 1962 Speech

The internet, also known as the world wide web (www), has a completely different meaning to the controllers and that is the “World Wide Wiretap”. The reality is that the internet developed by the US Military via DARPA was given to the public not as a method of efficient communication but rather as a method of controlling and tracking the public; training people to divulge private information freely; and identifying and psychologically profiling each and every person’s habits and behaviour. One of the unintended consequences has been the free flow of knowledge about the controllers themselves. Consequently, the internet itself is being targeted for transformation under Internet 2 into a government/corporate control medium (like TV) where free flow of ideas is censored and prohibited and only approved information will be accessible and the concept of internet neutrality is destroyed.

Protests Turn Violent After Argentina Votes to Keep Abortion Illegal

Violent protests erupted on the streets of Buenos Aires Thursday after Argentina’s senate rejected a bill to legalize abortion.

Pro-abortion demonstrators clashed with police, hurling stones, bottles, and firebombs and setting up flaming barricades. Police barricaded the senate and responded with water cannons and tear gas to keep protesters back, arresting seven of the demonstrators.

Early Thursday morning lawmakers defeated the bill by a vote of 38-31 following a 15-hour-long debate on Wednesday, in what pro-life advocates are celebrating as a major victory for the right to life.

Currently, abortion in Argentina is only allowed in cases of rape and threats to the mother’s health.

Both Ireland and Argentina had been targeted by international pro-abortion lobbyists and received heavy foreign financing to sway public opinion in favor of abortion.

  2. The international financial free masonry finally is attacking its own creation, but I do not think Erdogan (who already resisted two coups) will fall down. The international community of NWO could not win over Assad, who was much less powerful than Erdogan. Also, Turkey is in NATO, so what Trump is saying about Turkey being an enemy, sounds a bit hypocrite. Maybe they only want to frighten Erdogan (like if Turkey were Greece or Italy), but it will not work, they will make him stronger this way. They did the same with Putin, who was considered an enemy by zeropa and the rest of western world, and it did not work. Now with turkey, who is an “ally”, it will change nothing.
