TAILSPIN HITS TURKEY’S LIRA – COULD ERDOGAN’S DAYS BE NUMBERED

The Turkish lira is in a death spiral thanks to the diminutive wannabee Napoleon; small in stature and mind, this United States and Israel hater, has foamed at the mouth too many times. This has brought a crisis to the Turkish people who have seen their currency implode by 40% in the past few months, in fact by 20% last week. In the next year though the blood will start to flow as the economy, based on Euro and Dollar denominated debt, will implode faster than the tailspin of Greece during the financial crisis. As always the case the United States is the proverbial Bogeyman.

TRYING TO BRING TURKEY TO ITS KNEES.”  BBC News.svg

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused the US of trying to “bring Turkey to its knees through threats over a pastor“.

The US has demanded the release of Andrew Brunson and on Friday doubled tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.

The diplomatic spat sent the lira down 16% against the dollar on Friday.

Mr Erdogan also wrote in the New York Times that unless the US changed course, Turkey would look for new friends and allies.

Turkey has detained Mr Brunson for nearly two years, accusing him of links to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party and the Gulenist movement, which Turkey blames for a failed coup in 2016.

But the pastor is only one of a number of issues dividing the two Nato allies, including policy on Syria and Mr Erdogan’s growing ties with Russia.

What are Mr Erdogan’s latest comments?

He was speaking at a rally in the Black Sea town of Unye.

He said: “It is wrong to dare bring Turkey to its knees through threats over a pastor. I am calling on those in America again. Shame on you, shame on you. You are exchanging your strategic partner in Nato for a priest. You can never bring this nation in line with the language of threats.

The foam coming from this Muslim Brotherhood dog is beyond the pale. 

In a veiled attack on the US he added: “Some countries have engaged in behaviour that protects coup plotters and knows no laws or justice.”

“Relations with countries who behave like this have reached a point beyond salvaging.”

Just think of him criticizing our President and Country – he knows of no laws nor justice by clamping down on media enterprises, judges and police officers, not counting the purge of army officers after the coup. No trials, just jail and death. 

President Donald Trump has doubled US tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminium, as the precipitous fall of the Turkish lira accelerates.

In a tweet, Mr Trump said the currency was weak against “our very strong dollar”, adding that “US relations with Turkey are not good at this time”.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a speech that the drop was part of a “campaign” led by foreign powers.

Turkey also warned it would retaliate against the US tariffs move.

“The United States should know that the only result that such sanctions and pressure will bring… will be harming our relationship as allies,” the Turkish foreign ministry said in a statement.

The two Nato members are at odds on a range of issues – how to fight the Islamic State group, Ankara’s plans to buy Russian missile defence systems and how to punish the alleged plotters of a failed coup in Turkey in 2016.

Most recently, President Trump issued sanctions on top Turkish officials over the ongoing detention of a US pastor who is facing terror and espionage charges in Turkey.

The Europeans have it right, rejecting Turkey’s entrance into the European Union (EU). What sets Europe apart from Turkey is their Islamic identity while Europe on the whole is Christian.  And don’t forget that Turkey, mainly consisting of an Asian people, was an invading country under the Ottomans; Greece, Bosnia and Spain fell in their wake. That brings us to Turkey today. A NATO member under the iron hand of Islamist Erdogan who has no trouble stirring the pot of racism, constantly blaming others for his faults.

EXPEL THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD SLIME FROM NATO

The diminutive Muslim Brotherhood Napoleon wannabe, authoritarian Islamist dictator is poking too many fingers in the eyes of NATO members, specifically the United States. We suggest that John Bolton and Mike Pompeo take President Trump’s advice by convincing our NATO allies that this Muslim Country ruled by fiat, Turkey, be given the heave-ho from the august body.

Why would Christians defend a Muslim who is a Christian/Jew hater? Oxymoron to us. Put another way, does anyone in their right mind think Turkey would come to our rescue in the Mother of all wars against the tyrant regime in Iran. No way Jose! So there you have it; grind this POS back into the dirt he came from.

For example: Turkey and the U.S. appear to sharply diverge on a host of fronts, including Turkey’s war against U.S.-allied Kurds in the Middle East and Ankara’s recent purchase of an advanced Russian missile system.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has proved a worthy match for President Trump in frank and sometimes confrontational rhetoric. At one point, he all but threatened to fire on U.S. troops if they got in the way of Turkish military operations clearing out Kurdish positions in northern Syria.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo may have been surprised by threats against NATO ally Turkey made Thursday by President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, two State Department sources told NBC News.

The threats concern the fate of North Carolina Pastor Andrew Brunson, who has been detained by Turkish officials based on allegations of terror and espionage. Trump tweeted Thusday that the “United States will impose large sanctions on Turkey” for keeping Brunson in custody.

Trump called him “a great Christian, family man and wonderful human being.”

The Secretary of State had been involved in delicate negotiations in an attempt to free the 50-year-old pastor, who had been jailed for a year and a half on what the U.S. maintains are false charges connected to a failed coup attempt against Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Turkey cited health reasons for releasing Brunson to home detention Wednesday. In a potential quid pro quo Erdogan has demanded the extradition of Pennsylvania-based Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom the leader has held responsible for the failed July 2016 military coup.

Turkey’s foreign minister told U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in their call on Thursday that Turkey “will not bow down to anyone’s threats”, a foreign ministry source said, after President Donald Trump threatened to slap sanctions on Ankara.

The bottom line here comes down to when, not if, will the United States take the necessary action by convincing NATO members that Turkey is a threat to all of them. The truth is the truth, Turkey is now a dictatorship run by a ruthless demagogue on par with Castro, Stalin, Chavez, Ortega, Madero and the rest of the cheap suits.
