The 5 Eyes (6 eyes?) Meet in New Zealand- Presently

Interesting comment included asking if the 5 eyes, should really be knows as  the 6 eyes?
Included after the main article   

Readers here have surely noticed I use the "5 eyes media" label to describe what is almost entirely all of the main stream and alternative media
I caught exactly, ZERO news stories originating from here in Canada on this meeting. Yet, Canada is assuredly fully represented at the meeting in New Zealand.

The real reason 5 Eyes are meeting in Queenstown

"The surprise by the corporate mainstream media that the 5 Eye Nazgul are meeting in Queenstown is Orwellian double think.
The truth is that the 5 Eyes spooks meet in NZ quite regularly and the surprise by the corporate media is more due to the lack of institutional knowledge now inside these news organisations.
This was March 2011…
Key meets high-ranking US intelligence chief
Prime Minister John Key has had a meeting with a man he describes as the most senior American intelligence official to visit New Zealand.
…this was September 2012…
US Defense Secretary’s visit ‘shows great progress’ – Coleman
New Zealand is hosting the United States Secretary of Defense today in a symbolic visit that could signal a move towards restoring defence ties between the two countries.
…and this was November 2012…
Mystery spook’s identity confirmed
The identity of a United States spy who mysteriously landed in Wellington last year can be revealed as National Security Agency director General Keith Alexander.
…this ignorant surprise at 5 Eye spooks visiting NZ hides the horrible reason as to why the 5 Eye Nazgul visit so regularly here, and that is because we are so apathetic that we don’t bother protesting these visits.
If these spooks were trying to meet in Canada, Australia, Britain or the US, it would provoke massive civil rights protests, but because they are held in the Shire, the sleepy hobbits of muddle Nu Zilind barely even register what the hell is going on.
It is time we pulled out of the 5 Eyes and became an independent nation again, whatever we gain from being a member is nothing compared to the control we are losing. The GCSB and SIS have both had increases in budget by 250% and 174% under National and Key reorganised the following intelligence apparatus to answer only to a small clique of security goons that Prime Minister Bill English now controls; the Organised Crime Intelligence Unit, Financial Intelligence Unit, Strategic Intelligence Unit, National Bureau of Criminal Intelligence, Identity Intelligence Unit, Threat Assessment Unit, Police Terrorism Investigation and Intelligence Group and the Special Investigation Group.
That’s a lot of security apparatus doing what?
The Government can barely keep our privacy safe as it is with their new demands of unconstricted access held by multiple agencies…
‘Extremely disappointing’: Minister still concerned after privacy near-miss

Our digital individualism has trapped us all culturally by the mass surveillance of the Deep State and its power over our Democracy is almost immeasurable.

Otaga Daily Times
 It was understood about 15 agencies that carry out intelligence for Five Eyes - the spying partnership of the United States, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and New Zealand - would be attending the conference, which was believed to run for about a week and include golf, it was reported.

The Otago Daily Times understands police officers from Dunedin, Christchurch and further afield are in Arrowtown to provide security during the event.
A group of police officers who ``looked like a rugby team'' reportedly arrived at Millbrook, near Arrowtown, late yesterday afternoon in unmarked police cars and a dog squad vehicle.
One road, beside the main reception area, was blocked off by road cones.
Black vans could later be seen in the distance at the golf resort. The main entrance to Millbrook was open and no security was present.

ISIS Capital is now Deir Ez-Zor- Israel Strikes SAA in Queneitra

I guess the PKK Kurds and their US backers have no need to take Raqqa, then? Right?
I think the need is gone. But you can bet the annex/appropriation of Syrian territory will continue unabated.

April 01/2017:US Access to 5, yes 5, Air Installations In Stolen Northern Syria

Kobani and Tabqa plus three equals 5 accessible bases- Equals permanent occupation by the US of annexed, by the Kurds, northern Syria.
Assad states in an interview with Sputnik (hubby read this to me this morning)

He said US attacks on Daesh in Mosul mean "they are against ISIS [Daesh], but at the same time, they are supporting ISIS and they allow them to cross the border from Iraq into Syria."

"It means they helped ISIS to come to Deir Ez-Zor and to undermine the Syrian Army who are defending Deir ez-Zor. They wanted Deir ez-Zor to fall into the hands of ISIS," Assad said.

Of course, just a few hours ago Fox News reports:
In the wake of increased airstrikes and pressure applied from three directions by U.S.-backed Syrian forces, the Islamic State has essentially moved its so-called capital in Syria, U.S. defense officials told Fox News.

ISIS is now centered in Deir ez-Zur, roughly 90 miles southeast of Raqqa, the officials said.

U.S. military drones have watched hundreds of ISIS “bureaucrats,” or administrators, leaving Raqqa in the past two months for the city of al-Mayadin located further down the Euphrates River

Leaving Raqqa? How are they getting past the fierce fightin’ Kurds and their American special ops pals- Never mind!  Assad said ISIS came to Deir ez Zor from Iraq The question is still how did they leave Iraq and enter Syria? Obviously the US allowed them to pass, most probably aided them in their passage because as they 'watched' them pass they probably also ensured their safe passage!!


Israeli War Plane Strike Syrian Army in Quneitra. Golan & SANA

Quneitra, SANA – A military source announced on Friday evening that the Israeli enemy’s warplanes fired two missiles at 18:45 from within occupied territory at a military position in the surroundings of Khan Arnabeh in Quneitra countryside, causing material damage.

The source said that this aggression came after an attempt by terrorists to infiltrate military positions in Quneitra countryside was foiled and the terrorists suffered heavy losses, which proves that Israel provides direct support to terrorist organizations.

The source affirmed that such desperate attempts will not dissuade the Army and Armed Forces from continuing to crush the terrorist groups that act as Israel’s proxy in the area.

Hollywood's Military Spook Intelligence Apparatus & It's Insidious Influence

Hollywood's Military Spook Intelligence Apparatus & It's Insidious Influence

Insidious: waiting to entrap: harmful but enticing
  - developing so gradually as to be well established before becoming apparent

Background for two upcoming posts. Though I expect most who visit here are aware of Hollywood's influence in everythingAre your beliefs and ideas really your own? I comfortable stating, mine are.  How about you?

The video below is very introductory but it gets the idea across




 Hollywood. Where the unreal is made real. An industry that exists to make money while shaping your real world beliefs. All aided by intelligence agencies of course. Telling you what to think,  what to believe, made possible when one fails to exercise critical thinking faculties.

Let's start out with an article from the Atlantic

 Operation Tinseltown: How the CIA manipulates Hollywood
The CIA has a long history of “spooking the news,” dating back to its earliest days when the legendary spymaster Allen Dulles and his top staff drank and dined regularly with the press elite of New York and Washington, and the agency boasted hundreds of U.S. and foreign journalists as paid and unpaid assets.
The intelligence empire’s efforts to manufacture the truth and mold public opinion are more vast and varied than ever before. One of its foremost assets? Hollywood.
The agency has established a very active spin machine in the heart of the entertainment capital, which works strenuously to make sure the cloak-and-dagger world is presented in heroic terms.
 Ever since its inception in 1947, the CIA has been covertly working with Hollywood.
But it wasn’t until the mid-1990s that the agency formally hired an entertainment industry liaison and began openly courting favorable treatment in films and television.
During the Clinton presidency, the CIA took its Hollywood strategy to a new level—trying to take more control of its own mythmaking. In 1996, the CIA hired one of its veteran clandestine officers, Chase Brandon, to work directly with Hollywood studios and production companies to upgrade its image.
 There are many books on the subject as well:

The CIA in Hollywood: How the Agency Shapes Film and Television

Operation Hollywood: How the Pentagon Shapes and Censors the Movies

One I've recently read and very much enjoyed 

Esoteric Hollywood:: Sex, Cults and Symbols in Film

Which addresses the connections between the intelligence agencies and their celluloid assets

Pearse Redmond has done an entire series on the subject

The CIA and Hollywood

 The scale of influence , globally, the CIA & Pentagon have via Hollywood and other media, including social media, is vast. It's a very effective tool because most consumers merely take in without question that which is presented via these mediums.

Think about that as you view any given  form of media. Theatrical- home video or television, social media, what ever?  What's the message.

"The medium is the message"
Marshall McLuhan

Like this definition 

"McLuhan also tells us that a "message" is, "the change of scale or pace or pattern" that a new invention or innovation, i.e. a medium introduces into human affairs. Thus the message of a newscast is not the news stories themselves, but a change in the public attitude towards a subject of the news or the creation of a climate of fear as a result of the news. A McLuhan message always tells us to look beyond the obvious and seek the non-obvious changes or effects that are enabled, enhanced, accelerated or extended by the new thing"

  
From yesterday- Because SAA is the most effective fighting force against ISIS

Report Sees ISIS Benefiting From Assad Downfall

Report Sees ISIS Benefiting From Assad Downfall

And of course US/Israel would want nothing more then to benefit their ISIS proxies.. In order to also benefit their ( US/Israel/ISIS) mutual partner in crime, the PKK.

Newsweek
With many in the U.S. foreign policy community backing both the ouster of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the defeat of the Islamic State group (ISIS), a new report could raise some cause for concern. The report says Assad's military has been the most engaged faction against ISIS over the past year of Syria's conflict, making it an extremely risky target for a U.S. foreign policy that is intended to stop the jihadists' advances.
"The report says Assad's military has been the most engaged faction against ISIS over the past year of Syria's conflict" Well that's a statement of the obvious!
The report published Wednesday by the London-based IHS Jane Terrorism and Insurgency Centre, one of the world's leading security analysis agencies, says 43 percent of ISIS's battles between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017 were fought against the Syrian military and its allies, which include Russia, Iran and pro-government militias. Meanwhile, the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a majority-Kurd coalition of Arabs and ethnic minorities, accounted for 17 percent of the action against ISIS.
I'm going to requote two very crucial facts from the above paragraph!

 "The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a majority-Kurd coalition of Arabs and ethnic minorities, accounted for (ONLY)  17 percent of the action against ISIS"

That's because ISIS conveniently melts away as has been stated here repeatedly.

"43 percent of ISIS's battles between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017 were fought against the Syrian military and its allies, which include Russia, Iran and pro-government militias"

So the US backed Kurds account for only 17 percent of the action waged against ISIS while SAA and allies have fought 43% of ISIS battles in the same period of time.


Making the SAA and it's allies the best, most effective fighters on the ground against ISIS-  No matter how often the big lie has been repeated by the 5 eyes main stream & alternative media

Patrick Henningsen- Guardian profile
Patrick Henningsen is an author and founder of the 21st Century Wire news website, an Associate Editor of
alternative news site Infowars.com and regular geopolitical analyst for Russia Today

 @ 21st century wire "only the Kurdish forces have a proven track record of fighting – and winning – against ISIS" 

Quote from a PH oped- Of course, a lie. Interesting connections Mr H has also- Very pro Israel (Guardian and Alex Jones) which may explain the pro pkk/kurds in tandem with the denigration of SAA, in tandem with the demonization of Turkey that is a consistent theme at his site. Which should explain why I don't regularly link to or recommend that site. (making exceptions for specific interviews- Gilad Atzmon as an example)


Keeping in mind you've never read the "Kurds most effective fighters against ISIS"  lie stated here!  No sirreeeee.... Because it was always the BIG LIE .  I've stated very plainly, on several occasions, if the fight was REALLY against ISIS OBVIOUSLY the US could have allied with SAA. Supported them in their real fight against ISIS! But the US didn't do that because their goal was not to truly fight ISIS.

The actual goal  under the guise of "fighting ISIS" served multiple purposes

  1. Allow for destabilizing the region
  2. Destroying existing nations.
  3.  Ethnically cleanse the populace & create a massive weaponized refugee surge targeting Europe, extending to the US and Canada
  4.  Ethnic cleansing allowed for the clearing of existing multiple state territories for annexation by the PKK  Kurds  in order to create Kurdistan aka Israel 2.0
  5. This destabilization extends into North Africa as well 
Kurds..............ISIS
The fact of Syria being the main opponent of ISIS has always been obvious.
The Kurds as an effective fighting force has never been obvious or true.

Turkey’s Opposition Parties Declared Unstamped Ballots Valid During Referendum

Kaz, I fibbed! This was too good to pass up. Must stay away from reading news
Sorry :(

Turkey's main opposition parties are engaging in behaviour typically characterized as  You can't have your cake and eat it too"

DS
An official report signed by ballot box officials in Istanbul's Ümraniye district on April 16, 2017 shows that CHP and Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) members, Hasan Çelik and Olcay Emir respectively, accepted that the ballots were not stamped but they were indeed authentic.
 CHP and HDP members, named above, at the polling station signed an official statement accepting that unstamped ballots were both acceptable and authentic
The report indicates that 48 ballots in ballot-box numbered 3017 were unstamped.
"We have unanimously agreed on the validity of the [unstamped] ballots as there is no uncertainty regarding the voters' will," the report read, indicating that although the ballots were not stamped, they were indeed valid and represented the decision of the voters.
Let's talk about this.
  1. If CHP and HDP party members were so very concerned about unstamped ballots why did they allow the ballots to be cast? 
  2. Did someone else require the accountability of these two party members as a condition for this allowance to be made? Were observers from other parties present?
  3. What were the circumstances surrounding the request for these unstamped ballots to beused and cast?
  4. -Were CHP and HDP party members aware of who the voters were and what their vote may be?
I was a scrutineer at a provincial election some years ago, as stated previously, in my more naive days. One of my siblings and I had volunteered to assist. It seems sensible to me that an observer or scrutineer indicated to CHP/HDP party members they had to sign off on allowing these unstamped ballots to be case.

48 ballots in one ballot box? Could the CHP/HDP party have allowed this at others polls?
Perhaps this is how it is they've come up with the as many as 2.5 million ballots claim?

 Apparently this is not the first time unstamped ballots have appeared in elections including previous appeals by CHP to have unstamped ballots accepted

" The YSK on Wednesday rejected appeals by main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) and the Patriotic Party (Vatan Partisi) to cancel the April 16 referendum over the debate on unstamped ballots, and a look at previous election decisions shows that this was not the first time. The board had previously accepted unstamped ballots as valid, upon necessary inquiry and investigation confirming the authenticity of ballots. Opposition parties, including the CHP had even appealed to the board in previous elections to count unstamped ballots as valid"
 In the 2015 general elections, the CHP submitted an appeal to the provincial election board when the district election board in Istanbul's Maltepe district decided to consider unstamped ballots as invalid. The provincial election board ruled in favor of the CHP and declared the unstamped ballots as valid."

Making all this carrying on about these so called "unstamped ballots" a red herring as well as the BIG LIE- It's a BIG red herring LIE!  Basically a fallacy of distraction


Here's what we know based on all the news reports the last few days

- Yvet garnered the majority support
- Unstamped ballots were used in referendum and their use was okayed by opposition parties, allowing for 48 ballots, in one ballot box alone.
-Unstamped ballots have been accepted in other elections- In fact the CHP has appealed for them to be considered as valid on previous occasions-

The article continues on
"YSK's precedents also show that the board has declared unstamped ballots valid after inquiries confirmed the authenticity of ballots. For instance, in the 1984 local elections, the County Election Council in the town of Akçaalan in Kütahya province declared all votes without stamps were invalid, but the Social Democracy Party submitted a petition to deem the ballots valid. Upon investigating the request, the YSK said that there was no doubt about the authenticity of the unstamped ballots and that it was the Ballot Box Committee's mistake, ruling that the unstamped ballots are indeed valid.
In the 1994 local elections, ballot box committees in Ankara failed to stamp ballots and the County Election Council (CEC) declared that all votes cast with unstamped ballots were invalid, upon objection by the True Path Party. Two applicants then appealed the results to the YSK, which then announced that the aforementioned ballots were valid, in a decision saying that the purpose of Law No. 298 and Circular No. 138 is to prevent election fraud, but that the lack of stamps was the ballot box officials' fault and that an investigation has shown that the aforementioned ballots were indeed authentic. Also in 1994, a similar decision was made for the Salkım town in Nizip, Gaziantep.
In the 2004 local elections, a total of 145 ballots unstamped by the ballot box committee were also declared invalid in southern Mersin province and the opposition Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) submitted a petition to annul election results. However, the YSK ruled that the aforementioned ballots were valid and ordered a recount for the purpose of declaring the winner.

About those Trump Claims that USS Carl Vinson was "steaming" to North Korea..

 And last night:

"Barkey-ing" the Turkish Referendum

About those Trump Claims that USS Carl Vinson was "steaming" to North Korea..

Steaming? The USS Carl Vinson must have been a 'steamin' angry ship, ready to fight? Besides being nuclear powered (steam generation) I guess we were supposed to believe steamin' angry because that's certainly how the media reports prior to the Easter week end were spinning. As if confrontation was imminent!

Here's the post from April 14/17: US prepares preemptive strike against North Korea before another nuclear test. Link embedded within.

My opening thoughts -This is alarming if even remotely true. Though it feels like fear mongering. Thoughts?

Hattip to Davoh for letting me know, indeed, the news from last week was simply fear mongering. Davoh left me two links which will be posted below Davoh's edited comments

So, what's true?......
You posted this on Friday 14th. Two articles in Australian media today suggest otherwise......
 All that drama and fear over the week end regarding imminent danger was bullshit! Distractionary bullshit to up the fear over the holiday.

Trump is fake news!  Always has been.


USS Carl Vinson wasn't heading to North Korea as Trump administration originally suggested
A "very powerful" US Navy armada which the Trump administration said was heading towards the Korean Peninsula to deter the North from carrying out a nuclear test was actually carrying out exercises with the Royal Australian Navy thousands of kilometres away in the Indian Ocean, the ABC has confirmed

As tensions soared on the Korean Peninsula earlier this month, the US Government said the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier was being dispatched to the Sea of Japan to send a "powerful signal" to North Korea.

But instead of heading straight towards the Korean peninsula the US strike group instead conducted planned exercises with HMAS Ballarat in the Indian Ocean.

Senior Australian defence sources say the US carrier group is now gradually making its way closer to North Korea.
Photo: The USS Carl Vinson sails through the Sunda Strait, more than 5,000km away from North Korea (Supplied: United States Navy)

According to images released by the US Navy on Saturday the carrier group passed north through the Sunda Strait, the passage between the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Java, which is about 5,600 kilometres from Korea.

 White House all at sea over claims flotilla was heading to North Korea
 A US aircraft carrier-led flotilla that the White House said last week was “steaming” towards North Korea to increase pressure on Pyongyang was actually thousands of miles away heading in the opposite direction.
On 11 April, the defence secretary, Jim Mattis, said the Vinson was “on her way up” to the peninsula. White House spokesman Sean Spicer said “when you a see a carrier group steaming into an area like that [it] is clearly a huge deterrence”.
The following day,(April 12) Donald Trump said: “We are sending an armada. Very powerful.”
 I put up my post on April 14/17
The US ratcheted up its rhetoric ahead of North Korea’s military parade and failed missile launch over the weekend.
Yes it did. Though it's obvious the defence secretary would have known exactly where the carrier was! He surely had easy access to that information!

 In Washington, officials are facing questions and criticism over the location and original course of the Vinson flotilla, after it was photographed 3,500 miles away from North Korea, sailing south in the Sunda Strait at a time officials said it was sailing north.
 Psychological operation via the media...
Can I be any more digusted?

"Barkey-ing" the Turkish Referendum

"Barkey-ing" the Turkish Referendum

I've been mulling over the whole ruckus regarding the Turkish referendum. And there is a rukus happening in the so called "alternative" AND 5 eyes media. Including but not limited to a call for violent overthrow?  Overthrow call made by MoA reported  by Willy Loman
Seriously? How very atlantacist.

That oped from Henri Barkey has been on my mind, particularly that last paragraph.
Henri Barkey: " Turks have a tendency to buck the system when they feel that the rules of the game are unfair or that they are being bullied by their leaders. No one should assume that the vote will turn out the way Erdogan has planned"
It dawned on me today that Henri Barkey provided the basic narrative for the entire 5 eyes alt and main stream media presentation regarding the referendum- There it was staring me right in the face! In two short and sweet sentences, no less!

We are supposed to believe that the Turks actually did "buck the system" but that evil Erdogan 'stole' the referendum from those claimed system bucking/ Barkey-ing Turks.
Stereotypical evil sultan

Sadly and pathetically most people don't "buck the system"- The alternative media doesn't even buck the system- They march in lock step with the 5 eyes media.

So, is it realistic to think the Turks would actually "buck the system" as Barkey claims? Or is Barkey simply giving us the mind virus? 

I'm going with mind virus.

 Reuters
“Up to 2.5 million votes could have been  manipulated in Sunday's Turkish referendum which ended in a tight 'Yes' vote for greater presidential powers, Alev Korun, an Austrian member of the Council of Europe observer mission, told ORF radio on Tuesday”
Lie Big, Repeat often

 2.5 million votes could have been manipulated? That's a big claim.  That should be more accurately described as the Big LIE. Because it's big allegation of fraud involving multi millions of ballots and it's totally unsubstantiated. 
That's not stopping the 5 eyes alt and main stream media from running with it!  
*Do these ballots actually exist? 
*How do those that claim they exist, know they do? 
*If they do exist at all how were they manipulated? 
*How do those that make this claim know that they actually existed and were manipulated in a nefarious fashion? 
  I don't know. Do you?

I talked at length about the discrepancy in polling numbers that were covered in a post prior to the referendum taking place: Turkey's Referendum: "To Close To Call" ???
 What we are looking at here, and I mean really looking at is a roughly 60 yes/40 split nearly consistently-
It's been reported that the expected Yes support for the changes was going to be 55 percent
In a television interview on Friday Erdogan had predicted a far clearer victory saying polls showed a 55-60 percent share of the vote.
This was the point I was making about internal polling- Without a doubt internal polling was conducted all along. 

In conclusion I'm going to reiterate some statements made previously by me, here.
Considering the internal polling prior to the referendum...
Which did show the yes side ahead

 And my final thought goes back to what I said about the 'yes' side polling well in advance of undertaking this referendum to be certain of a comfortable win- That most assuredly did not occur
I get the impression Erdogan wouldn't have taken such a risk- He is shrewd. He wouldn't have misjudged- I should add that NO political leader or party anywhere would take that type of risk in a referendum- perception being everything
Perception being everything- it's more sensible to me that the no side was manipulated just enough to create the perception of division and of the changes being unsupported- The media spin bears this out

The narrowness of Recep Tayyip Erdogan's victory and opposition complaints about election fraud are highly unlikely to lead to a vote recount, but risk undermining the international legitimacy of his executive presidency.
And that was the desired outcome- job well done

The no side complained vociferously about conditions prior to the referendum and yet they had an amazing, unexpected, never showing in the polling result- So were their complaints bogus? Or did these claimed manipulated ballots favour the no vote? 

I don't know for certain. But, I certainly wonder.

Btw: the NO side wants an annulment-  A very good way to hide any intimate, fraudulent involvement  with 2.5 million manipulated ballots.....

I'm just sayin'...
Turkey's main secularist opposition CHP will present its appeal for the annulment of Sunday's referendum

Delegitimizing Turkey’s Referendum- Would You Expect Anything Less?

I would not have. Nor am I surprised by today's 5 eyes news reports.
Henri Barkey: " Turks have a tendency to buck the system when they feel that the rules of the game are unfair or that they are being bullied by their leaders. No one should assume that the vote will turn out the way Erdogan has planned"
Henri Barkey is telling us the masses will buck the system- I disagree with that statement- A disappointing reality I've long come to terms with is the majority will go along- They don't think. They merely accept- So the initial part of his statement can be dismissed. It's simply paying lip service- It's an empty platitude.

The more interesting part of his statement is "No one should assume that the vote will turn out the way Erdogan has planned"

I was making the point yesterday that prior to undertaking this referendum there would have been polling and lots of it- In my more naive days I worked on election campaigns- I get the idea of internal polling. Knowing as I do how this game works, it was interesting to me that Henri Barkey said "no one should assume that the vote will turn out---- as planned"
Henri Barkey was correct- the referendum didn't have the results that were likely documented via polls for months in advance. That however doesn't mean any bucking of the system occurred.

Yesterday I watched Turkey’s referendum unfold as it happened. As initial results came in the Yes side was way ahead. And I do mean way ahead. Along that 60/40 polling I had previously mentioned - Then something changed. The no side began to really pick up, in a rather unexpected, to me, way. Let me mention, there was never a time that the no side was in the lead, from my monitoring the two sites mentioned yesterday. Checking repeatedly over about 4 hours time.Yenisafak had an interactive map that was updating regularly. jamesinturkey was live blogging and every time a news post was made there was a ding to notify you of the latest news.

I'm pleased to see the Kremlin spokesperson is suggesting respecting Turkey's referendum result
"We believe that everyone should respect the will of the Turkish people," Peskov told reporters, according to Russian news agency TASS.
He said referendum was internal matter of Turkey.
Of course the 5 eyes media, alt and msm, is hell bent on delegitimizing the referendum- There's even an "activist" video! Of course. There's always an activist video.

The first hint of impending 5 eyes media trouble came via this speculative report
  6.57pm Block results service? by Mike
On CNN Turk, journalist Murat Yetkin says there is speculation that the Supreme Election Commission (YSK) has blocked its results service to some political parties.
Some time later there were claims that ballots were counted which weren’t “official”
Belfast Telegraph
Claim: “The High Electoral Board in Turkey made a late decision on the night of the referendum to count ballots that had not been stamped by officials”
 Response to that accusation “head of that Board, Sadi Guven, defended the process, saying all the ballot papers that were counted were not fake or cast fraudulently”
 Sadi Guven is saying all ballot papers counted were not fake or cast fraudulently-

Considering the response should we accept that the claim is valid or take it as just perception management?
Claim:“Bulent Tezcan, deputy chairman of Turkey's main opposition Republican People's Party, claimed the decision was made after it appeared the "no" votes were ahead of the "yes" votes, and that initial counting of the ballots happened in secret”
An unsupported but absolutely expected opposition comment. However there is no evidence to support this claim-
1-What ballots were counted in secret? He doesn't say. 
2-Where did this take place? He doesn't say. 
A recount would be necessary to even begin to validate such claims-
He has offered no proof to support his statement unless he is relying on the "activist" video posted to social media...  By the way, Isn't that convenient?  

These types of proofs should always be taken with a grain of salt-  We have activist videos galore regarding ‘peaceful revolutions’ ‘chemical weapons use’ and so called "rescues" via white helmets. To be blunt, "they don't mean shit"

These "activist videos" are created for the usage of 5 eyes media in order to promote certain perceptions for the advancement of specific agendas. Via the Daily Mail

  6.57pm Block results service? by Mike
On CNN Turk, journalist Murat Yetkin says there is speculation that the Supreme Election Commission (YSK) has blocked its results service to some political parties.

This is going to run through the five eyes media like a bad case of the stomache flu, if you know what I mean? It's looking very much to me as if interested outside parties are creating perceptions and have probably managed to skew the results of this referendum to make the Yes vote appear weaker then it has actually been polling at for months. In other words to guarantee the results the 5 eyes media had already projected.

Presenting the Turkish populace as nearly equally divided. Enabling greater demonization of the Turkish leadership- if that's even possible- Erdogan's been a 'dictator" and the Sultan and a tyrant and a whatever other label that could be applied for years now- And he managed all that from his largely ceremonial Presidential position- Quite amazing, if not entirely unrealistic

There was a shooting at a Diyarkabir polling station which could have served as a distraction-

Two Killed in Gunfire in School During Referendum Voting in Turkey’s Diyarbakir

Results look to be a 51 yes /49 no- A strangely familiar result...

Predictions:

-Destabilization of Turkey to worsen

-The PKK shall return to attacking with a vengeance

- "Peaceful Protests" shall commence.. centered around Izmir province (coastal and US base)
South Eastern provinces & "European Turkey" Istanbul

-Terror attacks in Ankara

  • The Yes camp has declared victory in Turkey's executive presidency referendum, based on results provided by Anadolu Agency
  • But the No camp has not conceded and has vowed to contest the results.

Erdoğan: "We call on all other countries to respect the decision of the Turkish people."
We expect our allies to do more to support our fight against separatism and terrorism, he adds.
It would be absurd to believe that this referendum was undertaken on anything but favourable for the yes vote poll results
I'm suggesting that the pre-referendum polling had been consistent with the 60/40 internal polling results I had previously reported- which would have been plus or minus maybe 3 to 5 percentage points- but could not have been today's result.

Yes, I am suggesting external forces interfered in the referendum.

Turkey's Referendum: "To Close To Call" ???

According to 5 eyes media- Both sides, Yvet (Yes) and  Hayir (No), are neck and neck. Is that accurate? Come on, it's 5 eyes media!

This is same media that swore up and down that Hillary Clinton was going to win the US election. This is the same media that makes real out of the unreal, thinking specifically about the recent, alleged chemical attack in Syria.

Here's an example of five eyes media perception management regarding Turkey's referendum.
Via Canada's own CBC
 "The most recent polls put both of these sides neck-and-neck still. It has been like that throughout the campaign," said CBC's Nik Köksal
That's been the consistent theme throughout the western media reports- "Neck and neck"
Of course this spin is being engaged in because it provides the 5 eyes media the option of claiming there was voter fraud and "Erdogan stole the referendum"

A claim that will be as substantive, valid and truthful as the recent accusation of Assad gassing his own people. Again.
It won't matter though. Because way to many people will be willing to jump on the bash Turkey, Turkish people and Erdogan bandwagon. 

I've been keeping an eye on the referendum news from Turkey via a journalist embedded in Turkey. I suspect he is monitoring and requisitioning internal polls for certain interested parties. Though he could just be interested for purely personal reasons, much like myself, but that seems doubtful. Oh well.

Let's look at the referendum numbers and stats coming out of Turkey via James in Turkey
  

As of April 13/17



As of April 6/17 

As of March 30/2017
 What we are looking at here, and I mean really looking at is a roughly 60 yes/40 split nearly consistently-  James in Turkey discusses how these numbers came to be very clearly also discussing the previous success the polling company employed, had in correctly calling other referendum results:
Nonetheless, the company is confident they have a sample that broadly reflects Turkey’s demographic make-up. Qriously would argue its referendum methodology is tried and tested, having successfully called the UK’s Brexit and Renzi’s Italian referendum last year, as well as this month’s Dutch election. I leave the judgment to you.
 Recall the media spin prior to the Brexit? And then of course the hand wringing and wailing afterwards about the actual vote- which saw Brits wanting to leave the EU.  

I'm taking the same position taken all along- This is a referendum for the Turks.

Highlighting, again, a point that was made in this post: Turkey's Referendum: Is The Sky Really Falling?

From an embedded audio clip
 Interestingly DW found plenty of Kurds willing to vote "Yvet" in the referendum-
  Kurds are not a black and white case in Turkey- unsurprising to me. Many blame the PKK for the violence that they live through! Yes, that is the Kurds that blame the PKK- which is not a surprise, again! A Kurdish man, who loves President Erdogan? Something we'd never hear of in the west, I mean, 5 eyes media. It's an interesting 10 minutes. Give it a listen and share some thoughts.
Here 



" The most striking regional result is southeast Turkey – YES (68.4), NO (31.6)where this poll suggests reports of the pro-Kurdish HDP’s dwindling influence appear to be true. Other regional differences are less striking: western Aegean and Thrace, both solid CHP areas, are firmly in the NO camp, while some of Yes’s strongest results come from the pro-AK Party Black Sea"
 The Turks will live with the results of this referendum. As the American populace lives with a Trump presidency and we here in Canada suffer under Tru-dough's prime minister act.  Outside interests may not be as willing to live with the results of Turkey's referendum. I suspect this is the reason 5 eyes media is spinning neck and neck. Or to close to call. The media is providing a cover story for future/probable interference in Turkey.

Oh and lastly check out the media page at jamesinturkey.com

Very informative- Hurriyet is a Gulen/CIA production. Hurriyet is nearly exclusively used by many alt media sites I consider untrustworthy. I had always suspected it was definitely pro Atlantacist, as mentioned, and always had to verify it's content elsewhere. 
 I'm sure readers here have noticed that practice, also reading my mentions of that on a number of occasions.  CNN Turk, lol, I recall that from the coup attempt. The guy at Incirlik was watching CNN to get his updates on the coup.. Makes sense that CNN Turk had the inside track, especially when one considers CNN's role with Syria Danny.. Recall that?

Wanted to add this one to the post!

Henri J Barkey: Turkey will never be the same after this vote

The man who was in Turkey immediately preceding the coup.. and he spins all the western 5 eyes memes- 

"Even so, the contest is too close to call."

 You can see internal polling directly above to close to call is not based in reality

" Turks have a tendency to buck the system when they feel that the rules of the game are unfair or that they are being bullied by their leaders. No one should assume that the vote will turn out the way Erdogan has planned"

  Barkey is planting the idea that there will be conflict, mayhem and manipulation.
  
Flashback 
According to Istanbul Police's Intelligence, Counter Terror, Cyber Crime and Criminal Units, Barkey was holding a meeting with 17 top figures, most of them foreign nationals, at a hotel on Istanbul's Princes Island on July 15, the day of the failed coup attempt in Turkey.

Barkey was staying in the Splendid Hotel, which was used as a British Military Headquarters during the days of occupation in 1919, between July 15 and 17.

Infants Show Innate Racial Bias- Good for them!

Leave it to AGENDA pushing university researchers to actually find fault with an infants  normal preference for those who resemble their family and parents- What a horror! 
* An obvious innate survival preference.  
* Likely crucial for forming a healthy self identity. 

 Nothing wrong with an infant having this preference- Nothing at all!

Yet, according to the sick  f*ck  researchers, this natural, normal healthy preference needs to be destroyed by even earlier exposure to the faces not of the infants own identifiable (to them) family.   Because what the world really needs is way more insecure, unsure and totally screwed up human beings who would never threaten the powers that shouldn’t be because they are all to busy thumb sucking and navel gazing thanks to early intentional identity destruction!  
A preference for those of your own family, immediate, extended and community does not imply anything but a normal survival strategy. A normal human trait
I really found this disturbing, abusive and indicative of the intent to destroy humans- starting as early as possible- And destroying the human race and getting them to accept the technocracy and AI is what this type of research is all about- A Brave New World-
  
Who would not want all humans to have healthy self identities? Predators aka psycopaths
What types of persons would not want humanity feeling confident? Feeling secure in who they are? Predators aka psychopaths

I keep asking myself why we humans are not only tolerating our own destruction but we're participating in it- willingly! Why aren't we pushing back against the obvious anti human agenda being pushed by the powers that should not be and their managerial classes.



This does not please me as human mother- It's an abomination

Exchangemagazine
Toronto – Two studies by researchers at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto and their collaborators from the US, UK, France and China, show that six- to nine-month-old infants demonstrate racial bias in favour of members of their own race and racial bias against those of other races.

In the first study, “Older but not younger infants associate own-race faces with happy music and other-race faces with sad music”, published in Developmental Science, results showed that after six months of age, infants begin to associate own-race faces with happy music and other-race faces with sad music.

In the second study, “Infants rely more on gaze cues from own-race than other-race adults for learning under uncertainty”, published in Child Development, researchers found that six-to eight-month-old infants were more inclined to learn information from an adult of his or her own race than from an adult of a different race.
When infants are unsure they look to those from their own "race"- Those who resemble them more closely for reassurance- Nothing wrong with that!
(In both studies, infants less than six months of age were not found to show such biases).

Racial bias begins at younger age, without experience with other-race individuals

“The findings of these studies are significant for many reasons,” said Dr. Kang Lee, professor at OISE’s Jackman Institute of Child Study, a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair and lead author of the studies. “The results show that race-based bias already exists around the second half of a child’s first year. This challenges the popular view that race-based bias first emerges only during the preschool years.” Hear Dr. Lee discuss the research results.

Researchers say these findings are also important because they offer a new perspective on the cause of race-based bias.

“When we consider why someone has a racial bias, we often think of negative experience he or she may have had with other-race individuals. But, these findings suggest that a race-based bias emerges without experience with other-race individuals,” said Dr. Naiqi (Gabriel) Xiao, first author of the two papers and postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University.

This can be inferred because prior studies from other labs have indicated that many infants typically experience over 90 per cent own-race faces. Following this pattern, the current studies involved babies who had little to no prior experience with other-race individuals.

“These findings thus point to the possibility that aspects of racial bias later in life may arise from our lack of exposure to other-race individuals in infancy,” Dr. Lee said.

Study results could be significant in prevention of racial bias

He continued to explain that overall, the results of these studies are critically important given the issues of wide-spread racial bias and racism around the world.

“If we can pinpoint the starting point of racial bias, which we may have done here, we can start to find ways to prevent racial biases from happening,” he said.
Why? When it is stated above babies have this racial bias in times of uncertainty? So it's clearing a security, coping measure for them. Why then would reasearchers wish to prevent these racial biases other then to destroy the early forming identity and turn these infants into unsure and scared children.

“An important finding is that infants will learn from people they are most exposed to,” added Dr. Xiao, indicating that parents can help prevent racial bias by, for example, introducing their children to people from a variety of races.
Parents would most likely be inducing insecurity in their infants by forcing them into situations where they are feeling scared- this is sick. Sick. Sick. 
When my daughter was an infant she was scared of men with beards (Daddy/Hubby was clean shaven)  I did not inflict hairy face visuals on her because that's just horrible! As an adult she is not scared of bearded people. What Dr Xiao suggests is abuse of infants.

Who has not seen small children freak out over being handed to Santa Claus- Must be because their "racist" towards Santa Claus!!  These researchers are deranged. Don't buy into this trash


Clearly 4 biased hater children!
 First study: Face-race and music
In the first study, infants from 3 to 10 months of age watched a sequence of videos depicting female adults with a neutral facial expression. Before viewing each face, infants heard a music clip. Babies participated in one of the four music-face combinations: happy music followed by own-race faces, sad music followed by own-race faces, happy music followed by other-race faces, and sad music followed by other-race faces. The study found that infants at six to nine months of age looked longer at own-race faces (so what?) when paired with happy music as opposed to with sad music. By contrast, six- to nine-month-olds looked longer at other-race faces when paired with sad music compared to with happy music.

Second study: Face-race and learning

The second study examined whether infants were biased to learn from own-race adults versus other-race adults. Six to eight-month-old infants saw a series of videos. In each video, a female adult looked at any one of the four corners of the screen. Following the look, in some videos, an animal image appeared in the looked-at location (a reliable gaze). In other videos, an animal image appeared at a non-looked-at location (an unreliable gaze). The results showed that six to eight-month-old infants followed the gaze of members of their own race more than they followed the gaze of other-race individuals. This occurred when the faces were slightly unreliable, as they are in the natural environment. This result suggests that, under uncertainty, infants are biased to learn information from own-race adults as opposed to other-race adults.

Racial bias can ‘permeate almost all of our social interactions’- Bullshit!

Two more biased hater children
Dr. Lee said it’s important to be mindful of the impact that racial bias has on our everyday lives, stressing that not only is explicit bias a concern, but so too are implicit forms.

“Implicit racial biases tend to be subconscious, pernicious, and insidious. It permeates almost all of our social interactions, from health care to commerce, employment, politics, and dating. Because of that, it’s very important to study where these kinds of biases come from and use that information to try and prevent racial biases from developing,” he said.
Grade A bullshit! Preference for your own people is normal and innate- It is not wrong or immoral or insidious. 
If your a parent to a young child, please don't damage your child by believing this garbage.
Just love and give your child the most secure upbringing possible so they will be healthy,  happy, confident,  strong and independent.

US prepares preemptive strike against North Korea before another nuclear test

This is alarming if even remotely true. Though it feels like fear mongering. Thoughts?

Link
The US Navy nuclear-powered USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier and its strike group approached the Korean Peninsula in anticipation of a possible new nuclear test or launch of ballistic missiles in North Korea.
According to the American private intelligence and analysis company Stratfor, the carrier group is currently located west of the Japanese island of Kyushu and is crossing the Korean Strait to the waters of the Sea of Japan toward the east coast of North Korea. There, according to Japanese media, citing sources in the country's Self-Defense Forces, Japanese warships will also join them.
In addition to the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, the carrier group includes the missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain and two destroyers, the USS Michael Murphy and the USS Wayne E. Meyer. The group is accompanied by nuclear submarines equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles as well.
According to CNN, in the event of a nuclear test, B-52, B-1B, and B-2 strategic bombers of the US Air Force, which are at the US airbase on the island of Guam in the western part of the Pacific Ocean, can also be involved in a possible strike against North Korea. In addition, ground and ship missile defense systems of the United States, Japan and South Korea can be used to intercept North Korean missiles. This includes the American ships of the USS Carl Vinson carrier group, which are equipped with the Aegis Missile Defense System. The American carrier strike group left for the Korean Peninsula on Saturday. This is in response to the increasing number of ballistic missile launches conducted by North Korea. In addition, South Korea and Japan claim that Pyongyang is preparing another provocation by April 15, the 105th anniversary of the birth of the country's founder, Kim Il Sung, or April 25, the 85th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People's Army. This time it could be a nuclear test.
The US is ready to strike a preemptive blow against North Korea in the event that evidence is received of Pyongyang's preparations for a new nuclear test, NBC News reported on Thursday, citing sources in US intelligence.

Donald Trump Channels Hillary Clinton While Attacking Syria

Yes, he did. I understand the Trump supporters are angry and betrayed. Now it's time for all the cry baby, Hillary supporters to dry their eyes and wipe those snotty noses. You got your Hillary after all.

 Trump channeled Hillary so implicitly he even hit airfields per her, just hours earlier, suggestion!
 “In her first interview since her stunning presidential election defeat by Republican rival Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton on Thursday called for the United States to bomb Syrian air fields”

The strike on Syria was amazingly effective in neutering both the Trump and Hillary supporters.
With that one action the Trump supporters were disillusioned and the Hillary supporters were elated.
The theatre is over- Both sides have been made inert.

 Forbes oped:

Donald Trump spent the presidential campaign insisting that Washington’s first duty was to protect the American people.

Almost exactly a year ago he gave a major address to the Center for the National Interest in which he criticized nation-building and especially the disastrous Iraq and Libya interventions:  “After losing thousands of lives and spending trillions of dollars, we are in far worst shape in the Middle East than ever, ever before.”

He also promised to step back from confrontation from Russia. “I believe an easing of tensions, and improved relations with Russia from a position of strength [not] only is possible, [but] absolutely possible. Common sense says this cycle, this horrible cycle of hostility must end and ideally will end soon,” he explained.

Alas, less than three months after taking office for President Trump has begun channeling Hillary Clinton on foreign policy.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson initially said “steps are under way” to develop a new international coalition to oust Assad: “it would seem that there would be no role for him to govern the Syrian people,” he announced last Thursday.

Ambassador Haley spewed fire and brimstone while seeming to push aside her nominal boss. Peace is impossible “as long as Assad remains in power,” she insisted: “we’ve got to go and make sure that we actually see a leader that will protect his people.” She allowed that “Getting Assad out is not the only priority”: The U.S. also has “to get out the Iranian influence,” which is necessary “for peace and stability in the area.”

Last week he declared that as president he now has “responsibility” for Syria.
Hillary would have done the same thing- She in fact said bomb the airfields before Trump did.
Both Hillary and Trump are part of the same deep state.
That said, the entire reason of this post was to make the point that both sides ,of this always artificial debate, have been silenced and a change in tactic is required- non participation- it's always been the only way
