The former commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, retired US Army General John F. Campbell, was the mastermind behind the failed military coup in Turkey, the Yeni Safak daily has reported…
According to Yeni Safak, Campbell “also managed more than $2 billion in transactions via UBA Bank in Nigeria by using CIA links to distribute among the pro-coup military personnel in Turkey.“
According to the paper, “Millions of dollars of money has been transferred from Nigeria to Turkey by a group of CIA personnel. The money, which has been distributed to an 80-person special team of the CIA, was used to convince pro-coup generals. After taking money from their bank accounts, the CIA team hand-delivered it to the terrorists under the military dresses.”
US news has exactly one story on this so far, Wall Street Journal has Campbell deny everything. End of story.
With Clinton’s immediate middle finger to pretty much everyone by hiring Debbie, the disgraced cornerstone of DNC corruption, Hillary has handed Donald Trump a 6-point lead today in national polls. Clinton is swiftly becoming America’s most-hated woman, not a sound election strategy to me, but what do I know? I’m voting Green Party.
But we see the claw marks of the Israel lobby in those leaked emails:
…Debbie Wasserman Schultz says of Sanders’s effort to water down the party platform’s commitment to Israel to maybe include reference to the “occupation,” now in its 50th year:
“The Israel stuff is disturbing.”
While the party communications director observes that the Hillary Clinton campaign regards the Israel issue as an “ideal” one to “marginalize” Sanders.
Donald Trump has seized on the emails to try and recruit Sanders voters, calling the emails vicious evidence that the system is rigged, and noting the attack on Sanders’s faith.
Meantime, these emails are clear evidence of the role of the Israel lobby inside the Democratic Party. The base doesn’t love Israel; increasingly, poll numbers show that young Democrats, and women and Latinos and blacks, are turning against Israel. But the party relies on big pro-Israel money to a “shocking” “gigantic” degree and also relies on mainstream media that is dedicated to Israel. That’s why Clinton forces felt that they could “marginalize” Sanders by pushing this issue. And you wonder why Hillary Clinton pandered in her speech to the Israel lobby AIPAC, has promised megadonor Haim Saban that she will fight the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS) along with Republicans, and has shown she will run to Trump’s right on this question…
Alex Jones’ minions tried to ambush Van Jones, and he gave one of the best political interviews ever.
Mostly speculative. We don’t know who was behind the coup. It may have been Erdogan himself. As Erdogan has been the greatest supporter of ISIS I have no problem with him being deposed, but not by worse people. It’s a bit of an enigma inside a mystery at this point.
Right-wing patriarchal scumbag propagandists harassing women employees? Who’d have thunk it? “Inconceivable!”
On Saturday, the New York Times reported that it had spoken to a dozen women currently or formerly employed by the news network, all of whom say that they personally experienced sexual harassment or intimidation at work.
