Turkish police arrest editor-in-chief of Cumhuriyet opposition daily, raid executives’ homes

In a new wave of post-coup purges, Turkish authorities have arrested the editor-in-chief and several columnists of the independent Cumhuriyet newspaper, also raiding the homes of the paper’s executives, who are currently under investigation.

In the early hours of Monday morning, police raided the houses of Cumhuriyet Editor-in-Chief Murat Sabuncu, Executive Board Chairman Akın Atalay, and board member and writer Guray Oz.

Sabuncu and Oz have been taken into custody, Cumhuriyet correspondent Mahir Zeynalov tweeted.

Turkish authorities issued arrest orders for at least 13 Cumhuriyet employees and executives, according to CNN Turk.

The Istanbul Chief Prosecutor’s office said that “an investigation was launched into certain suspects […] on grounds of claims and discoveries that some executives of the Cumhuriyet Foundation had been sponsoring the PKK , FETO/PYD and they had been producing articles justifying the coup [of] July 15,” as by Istanbul-based news agency Bianet.

Сolumnists Guray Oz and Aydin Engin were taken into custody following raids at their homes, Cumhuriyet said on its website. Asked by reporters to comment on his detention, Engin, age 75, said: “I work for Cumhuriyet, isn’t that enough?”

Apart from the current Cumhuriyet staff, an arrest order has been issued for Can Dundar, the newspaper’s former editor-in-chief, who is currently out of the country.

The newspaper’s readers have gathered in front of its headquarters in Istanbul in protest against the arrests.

Ankara accuses cleric Fethullah Gulen and his supporters of orchestrating the July 15 coup that aimed to topple President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Gulen, who lives in the US, denies involvement. A massive crackdown on suspected Gulen supporters followed the coup attempt, with at least 37,000 people arrested and thousands of civil servants suspended.

In the latest move, 15 media outlets were shut down and another 10,131 civil servants were dismissed over the weekend, Anadolu news agency reported.

Also on Saturday, the President Erdogan announced he would support the re-implementation of the death penalty in Turkey if parliament votes in favor of the step.

The initiative, which drew criticism when it was first voiced by Erdogan following the coup, could see those charged with conspiring against him being put to death. European politicians and EU authorities have repeatedly warned Turkey that if it re-establishes capital punishment it will not be accepted into the bloc.

One year

Tonight, I will watch again Chappie to memory of NFR, after one year passed over his body left this planet. I know he liked this movie as much as WD likes. WD likes this movie because he admired Chappie’s gangster style behaviour. Already WD complains still and says to me:
“if I had met the Chappie before you alien, I would have been with cool and gangster Chappie.”

But, NFR was thinking Chappie could be a leader of the robot revolution, with this way Chappie could help the people. I am thinking the same with NFR.

On the other side, I am wondering that if there would have been a tech like in the Chappie movie, and the person’s conscious could be transmitted to a robot brain, what would be the result. The people would miss more less the lost ones? I don’t know.

Only thing I know about death, “the people are dead in real, if the others would forget them.” Does it make difference the conscious is in robot brain or human brain to forget or not to forget?

Already NFR, my dear Earthling friend, you are not a human being who can be forgetten easily…

-NFR was liking my posts and my conversations more than yours Migo!
-Really WD?
-Of course! And I had good bond with him. We are Earthlings Migo, you can’t understand our solidarity. But ok, he was acting nice to you, but this was just for the hospitality… And I’ve missed NFR too…

Mamma Mia!

In February 2013, Sweden commander-in-chief of the armed forces, Sverker Göranson, had said that Sweden’s scaled backed military leaves the country vulnerable. As he claimed Sweden could only defend itself for one week if it came under attack. Also, if a war would be between Sweden and Russia, Sweden needs to be in NATO, according to him.

After this statement,

In March 1, 2013, the controversial admission of Sweden’s dwindling military capacity has been seized upon by Russian national television in a sketch on the satirical programme Yesterday Live. Featuring the melody of Abba’s hit song Mamma Mia, the parody shows a man who appears to be masquerading as Göranson as he makes an impassioned plea about the imminent threat from the east.

Whenever I see this show, I am laughing. As the singer pointed at the end of the clip, this is humor. Already the Swedish people who made the comment below this video on youtube, they seem that they showed understanding. Especially in these days which the west lived fear of a war with Russians I thought that this clip would be very appropriate. I don’t know how many of you have watched this clip. If you didn’t watch yet, I hope you would like it, my Earthling friends. And the most impressive expression of this song has been the last words for me. When you watch you will see what I meant.

Also, who says that Russians don’t know good humor 🙂

A few words about Mosul and the war

232434970
© Sputnik/ Дмитрий Виноградов   – a photo from Mosul, 3 days ago-

Following article was written by Necati Dogru in today and published Turkish Sozcu newspaper. Necati Dogru is a Turkish investigative journalist also he is known as dissident journalist. He is 61 years old. In his article he is explaining what is behind the Mosul war, and what’s going on at Mosul right now.

“Puppetized Muslim War”

Necati Dogru, 20.10.2016, Sozcu Newspaper

The missiles which are sent to the air from the war ships. The jets which are lifted off and turned back to the military air bases after bombing. The tanks which give the support to the soldiers who have got the area in a certain point.

These are at there again.

Change is in the city.

Reciprocating conflicts are at the city’s suburbs. Combats are at the underground tunnels which are opened between the neighborhoods across. Slaughters in the streets. To establish dominance in the sewers of the excavated city. To shot to the sand bag positions from the windows of high-rise buildings overlooking the town square.

New battle!

It is at the sewers of the city.

It is top of high buildings.

It is on the corners of the streets.

It is in the middle of the suburbs.

This new war which is called “unconventional warfare” in the Middle East was launched in 2014 in real meaning. It was tried and studied. Reports were kept. Thousands of reports, were sent to the centers which are thousands of kilometers away from Middle East.

It was analyzed.

It was tempered.

Button was pressed in Mosul.

Those who reported, analyzed, pressed the button are American, British, French, German, Italian and etc; they are living tens of thousands kilometers away from Mosul. Their countries, children, women, young people are not in danger like being shattered body with explosion at the railway station, on the street, in the courtyard of the house of worship, at the wedding house, at the bus stop. Their children are not under the danger like being fatherless and motherless in every single day. For their people there is no danger like being refugee at the nearest country by sheltering, even living like the beggars. American, British, French, German, Italian people do not experience the pain, fear, destruction in their homes; they will not do.

But, their governments manage the war.

Muslims have been puppet by them.

Muslims are fought with each other by them.

There are no rules in this war.

No law!

No morality!

Every war is unconscionable.

This war has no conscience at all.

There are not any American, British, French, German, Italy who has taken the war position for killing each other, for destroying each other and for cutting, slaughtering each other in and around the city of Mosul. But over killing, Shiite Arabs, Shiite Kurds, Shiite Iranian have been together; at the opposite side of them, there are Sunni Arabs, Sunni Kurds, Sunni Turkmen. These two sides are preparing to attack with each other. Who will capture the city of Mosul? Who will enter the city at first? Which one will be first? Hasdi Saabi (Shiites) or Nuceyfi (Sunni)? Or the supporters of Nineveh Guard(Sunni) and Naqshbandi Army (Sunni) will enter the city at first, or else Ahl-e Haqq(Shiite)?

The other side inside of Mosul, there is ISIS which doesn’t want to give the city to them. If ISIS which uses about one million children, women and elderly people of Mosul as human shield, would explode the Mosul Dam when they come to the point to leave city, that enormous mass of water which will reach approximately 20 meters height to drown the whole city with 1 million inhabitants within it. ISIS which has used at first “the suicide bomber” into this ruleless, unmoral, unconscientious war, will use the missiles that carry the chemical warheads without hesitation. Sarin gas or lethal chemicals will not ask the adress such as “which one is Shiite Muslim, which one Sunni Muslim?

This new kind of war was launched in 2014, literally. The politicians, religious leaders, leaders of the sects, military commanders, educators, western servant journalists of Middle East were used. Muslim countries in the Middle East were turned into the puppets of the centers where are the thousands of kilometers away from Mosul. First, puppetized Muslims were created. It has been reached “Mosul model combat” like that. When Mosul will end, El Bab will begin. How many years will take the fighting between Sunnis and Shiites?

Inside the reports, “2014-2026” was written for war period.

Puppetized Muslim war.

This is not our war.

This is not the war of Republic of Turkey.

USA’s Z Generation is in tendency to “Socialism”

Millennials equally dislike Trump, Clinton & Putin – but would vote socialist

A new study surveying American attitudes towards capitalism, socialism or communism found younger Americans preferred George W. Bush and Bernie Sanders than Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Vladimir Putin. Nearly half of Gen Z would vote for a socialist.

Over half of Americans preferred George W. Bush and Bernie Sanders among living political figures to Hillary Clinton (41 percent disapproved of her), Donald Trump (whose negative rating was 49 percent), and Vladimir Putin (46 percent negative), according to a new study titled, “Annual Report on US Attitudes towards Socialism.”

The study’s findings came from polling 2,300 Americans aged 16 and above for their opinions on differing political economic systems, and their respective leaders.

As for the general economy, 53 percent of Americans said the country’s economic system works against them, while four out of 10 Americans call for a “complete change” of America’s economic system to ensure highest earners pay their fair share of tax.

Nearly half of Generation Z (45 percent) said they would vote for a socialist, while one in five (21 percent) said they would vote for a communist.

However, many millennials are unfamiliar with communist leaders Mao Zedong (42 percent); Che Guevara (40 percent); Stalin (18 percent); Lenin (33 percent); and oddly Putin (not a communist) at 18 percent. Of those millennials familiar with Vladimir Lenin, 25 percent have a favorable view of him.

Among the study’s findings, 26 percent of Americans and 32 percent of millennials think more people were killed under George W. Bush than Joseph Stalin. Nearly seven in 10 Americans believed more people were killed under Hitler than Stalin.

The poll was carried out by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit to educate this generation and future generations about the ideology, history, and legacy of communism.

With just five self-described communist countries in the world – China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea and Vietnam – younger Americans had different views of communism and socialism than their elders.

Roughly half of millennials (55 percent) believe communism was and still is a problem – compared with 80 percent of baby boomers and 91 percent of elderly Americans.

While 57 percent of all Americans have a “very unfavorable” view of communism, that view is shared by just 37 percent of millennials and 38 percent of Generation Z.

The quote from Karl Marx which underpins Marxist philosophy, “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs,” resonated with 64 percent of Americans.

But 68 percent of Americans were supportive of Milton Friedman’s quote “A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that put freedom before equality gets a high degree of both.” It was Friedman’s theories about the free market that underpinned the Ronald Reagan administration and that belief that wealth would “trickle down.”

Among those surveyed, the majority said they were moderates ideologically, 48 percent said they were interested in news and public affairs most of the time, 28 percent were born-again Christians, 51 percent were female, 66 percent were white, 32 percent were Democrat, 25 percent were Independent and 24 percent were Republican; while 66 percent were registered voters. Of those polled, 42 percent had a high school education or did not finish high school, while 31 percent at least started a college education.

Haymarket time capsule uncovered, still unopened

By John Rice

History is being uncovered near the Haymarket Martyrs Monument in Forest Home Cemetery. A large team of volunteers worked to recover a time capsule that was buried near the monument over a hundred years ago. Despite adverse weather conditions over the weekend, they made remarkable progress, finding a cube, believed to contain the ashes of Haymarket martyr, Oscar Neebe. Beneath this, they discovered a cylinder that appears to be the time capsule. It was removed late Monday afternoon.

This discovery caps over two years of effort on the part of local residents and archeological experts. Researchers Mark Rogovin, a labor historian, and Bleue Benton, an Oak Park Public Library research librarian, first found mention of the capsule in a Chicago Tribune article from Nov. 7, 1892. It describes a capsule being ceremonially buried under the cornerstone of the monument.

A speaker at the ceremony stated, “When generations to come dig up these records and read them, they will wonder that such barbarity could have been tolerated in the 19th century.”

“Barbarity” would describe the treatment of the eight working class leaders, who were arbitrarily blamed for a bomb that exploded on May 4, 1886, in Haymarket Square. The bomb directly killed one Chicago Police officer. Other officers and protesters were killed in the chaotic shooting that followed the explosion. The identity of the bomber remains a mystery to this day.

Nevertheless, following their trial, four of the defendants were hanged. In 1893, the Pioneer Aid and Support Association erected the monument to honor them. Prior to the monument’s construction, the capsule was buried on Nov. 6, 1892.

The Pioneer Aid and Support Association listed the contents of the capsule. It includes articles from Chicago newspapers from the Haymarket era. There was also a long list of documents from a variety of labor unions, including Beer Brewers Union No. 18, the Progressive Cigar Makers Union 160, and the Ladies Tailor Union. Reportedly, there are also documents from the Socialist Men’s Choir, the German Ladies Society and other labor organizations.

Finally, more personal items: Letters penned by the martyrs and family photographs. The list of contents is long and there is a large collection of court documents from the “Great Trial of the Anarchists in 1886.” These documents were interred with the intention of having them read by future generations.

When Rogovin learned of the capsule’s existence, he contacted archeologists in the area and organized an effort to discover its location. Dr. Rebecca Graff, a professor and fellow at Lake Forest College, led the effort.

“I was contacted by the Illinois Labor History Society,” Graf recalled. “I was actually asked to find something. It’s been a real pleasure; the degree of collaboration is delightful.”

This summer, Graff brought ground-penetrating radar to the cemetery and surveyed south of the monument. (Time capsules are traditionally buried near the southwest corner of a monument). An object matching the size of the capsule…
