Taxpayers May Be Funding Billionaires' Biggest Apartment Deals

Who do billionaires turn to when they want to buy apartment complexes? The U.S. taxpayer.
Barry Sternlicht’s Starwood Capital Group and Stephen Schwarzman’s Blackstone Group LP are in talks with Freddie Mac to finance two transactions totaling more than $10 billion, according to people with knowledge of the negotiations. Those discussions come after the government-owned mortgage giant already agreed to back Lone Star Funds’ $7.6 billion deal to buy Home Properties Inc. and Brookfield Asset Management Inc.’s $2.5 billion takeover of Associated Estates Realty Corp.

Another Ben Carson Tale Implodes: No Evidence Supports Claim He Shielded White Classmates From 1968 Race Riot

In Carson’s account to the Journal last month, black students unleashed fury and grief over the slaying of King on white classmates at Detroit’s Southwestern High. As a junior, Carson had a key to the biology lab because he worked there part-time. Carson claimed he hid a few frightened white students inside to shield them from the unrest. He could not recall any of their names.

None of the half-dozen former classmates of Carson or his high school physics teacher could recall white students hiding from rioting the in the biology lab when interviewed by the Journal — though they all remembered the riot itself.

Netanyahu comes for arms and alms

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in Washington now, trying to paper over his disdain for US President Barack Obama long enough to secure a new deal with defence officials to restock his nation’s armoury. There’s little love lost at a personal level between the two men, but Netanyahu knows he can always count on his friends in Washington, in the Jewish lobby, and in the Republican Party.

He is still smarting from the fact that the US along with Russia, France, the UK, China and Germany brokered a deal with Tehran on the future of Iran’s nuclear programme — a deal that he views as being the ultimate threat to the very existence of his country, with Iran having the means and access to technologies that could potentially give it a nuclear weapon.

ICC prosecutor ordered to investigate Israeli attack on Mavi Marmara

On Friday the appeals chamber of the International Criminal Court ruled that the office of the prosecutor must review its decision to close a preliminary examination into Israel’s deadly attack on a ship full of Turkish activists in 2010.

In May 2010, Israel violently raided the Mavi Marmara, a Turkish vessel that was part of flotilla sailing in international waters on its way to break the Israeli siege on Gaza.

During the raid, Israeli soldiers killed 10 civilian passengers and injured many more (nine died immediately and a tenth died of his wounds in May 2014).

In November 2014, Fatou Bensouda, the prosecutor of the ICC, closed her examination into the case, finding it was without “sufficient gravity” to justify further action.

China is Canceling the Debt of the World’s Most Impoverished Nations

This sounds like encouraging news on the part of China. Perhaps there is nothing nefarious going on; however this is the same nation that has been committing human rights violations as a matter of public policy for decades, not to mention systemic environmental pollution.

What impact this could have on the global economy is unclear, but this seems to be part of a grander economic plan developed in the past.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ooooh, bad China. BAD China! How dare they set a dangerous precedent like erasing debt!

Remembering USS Liberty: When Israel attacked America

Richard Brooks still remembers when the alert came.

With klaxons sounding and people yelling, the tannoy system warned everyone "Standby to receive torpedo hit".

"I thought I’ll never get out of this mess alive. Weird things were running through your minds, because I’d chalked myself off."

He felt the torpedoes hit and the ship pitch to one side but realised he was still alive.

And then the priority became survival. As chief engineer, he could tell the engines were still working. “My machinery was still intact and I was still making headway. I yelled through the voice tube ‘Give me all the steam pressure you’ve got, let’s get the hell out of this area’".

Eventually his ship, The USS Liberty made its way to safer waters and managed to take stock of the sustained attack. Thirty-four were lying dead, more than 171 were injured.

The victims of the day Israel attacked America.

Israel and US look to heal relationship as Netanyahu visits Washington

Israeli and US government officials are hoping to patch up battered relations between the two countries when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu visits Washington this week, for meetings with Barack Obama and leading Democrats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Read the comments. Americans overwhelmingly oppose giving Israel any more money or weapons. The fact that Obama plans to do so reminds us all that Washington DC is a Vichy government, a puppet ruling us at the direction and for the benefit of Israel!

Nov 09 09:11

Benjamin Netanyahu is meeting with Obama today. Here’s what he wants.

He's got his work cut out for him. First, he's trying to get the relationship with President Obama back on track after a disastrous 2015 and more broadly mend fences with the Democratic Party. He also needs to demonstrate to Israelis that their country's relationship with the US is back on track, and try to come to an understanding with the Americans about what they want out of Israel on the Palestinian issue.

It's a big agenda. Here's a guide to why Netanyahu has so much on his plate, how he's going to try to accomplish it, and what his chances are of succeeding.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Basically, Netanyahu gets more of your money for weapons to murder his neighbors with, and the Palestinian issue gets put off until someone else is in the White House, a victory for Netanyahu as none of the candidates for next year's elections are sympathetic to the Palestinians' plight!

Wind Industry’s Armageddon: Wind Farm Output Collapse Leaves 110,000 South Australian Homes & Businesses Powerless

Global Warming? How About Global Cooling?

A new study out of the United Kingdom predicts the Earth is about to go through a major climatic shift that could mean decades of cooler temperatures and fewer hurricanes hitting the United States.

Scientists at the University of Southampton predict that a cooling of the Atlantic Ocean could cool global temperatures a half a degree Celsius and may offer a “brief respite from the persistent rise of global temperatures,” according to their study.

This cooling phase in the Atlantic will influence “temperature, rainfall, drought and even the frequency of hurricanes in many regions of the world,” says Dr. Gerard McCarthy. The study’s authors based their results on ocean sensor arrays and 100 years of sea-level data.

Away From Dollar: Russia, China to Create Entirely Different Gold Market

While key Western banks are artificially restraining gold prices to breathe life into the diluted and devalued dollar system, Russia, China and other emerging economies are involved in "the genial move" to establish an entirely different gold market, F. William Engdahl underscores.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That will create a huge problem for Wall Street. If they keep gold prices artificially lower, physical gold will pour out of the US into Russia and China. If they let gold prices float free to their real value, the American people will empty their negative-interest savings accounts, close their stock portfolios, and buy the rise! The only way the US Government can prevent either outcome is a total gold confiscation program, and that could trigger a civil war!

Ukraine ready to cut off its nose to spite Russia

"We have disposed of gas oligarchs and done away with our dependence on gas supplies from the Russian Federation," the Ukrainian Prime Minister said. According to our expert, Yatsenyuk's statement does not reflect the real state of affairs. "Ukraine is still importing the Russian gas, even if it buying some of it from European traders," said Alexey Grivach. Reversible gas from the EU is a more expensive strategy for Ukraine. "Ukraine pays more for this gas, and there is also a margin that it pays to European companies." Russia continues selling natural gas to Ukraine at a discount for several reasons. Firstly, Russia follows the approach of gas supplies on market conditions. In addition, this is a part of our agreement with the EU and our contribution to the security and reliability of gas transit through the territory of Ukraine, because many countries of south-eastern Europe are highly dependent on this transportation route.

Rand Paul: Neocon Hillary Will Start More Wars than Any Other POTUS Candidate

Well obviously. The establishment is hell bent on disrupting and remapping the entire Middle East while continuing to encircle Russia. Same old, same old.

And you just can’t get more establishment than Hillary (except for maybe Jeb). Paul went on to say Rubio is right up there with her.

Have you seen Hillary laughing about starting a war with Iran a few years back?

She’s all about it. All those warm and fuzzy political ads with her and Bill snuggling Chelsea’s baby while they talk about what a wonderful grandma she is and try to make her relatable to other, normal women are laughable.

This is a beast who cackles with glee when people are lynched and murdered in the street.

Something is just wrong with her. She’s the kind of person who conceivably tortured and killed small animals and secretly hid their dead bodies under the porch as a kid.

Putin Warns ISIS – Obama Warns School District About Girls’ Shower Room

The story is not complicated. One boy who thinks he is a girl wants to play on girls’ teams, be allowed into the girls’ locker rooms and shower with the girls, and is not satisfied with the broad accommodations the school district has already made.

Now, liberalism’s standard knight in shining armor (ACLU) has come to the boy’s defense, along with Barack Obama breathing out warnings that the school will lose its Title IX federal funding if it does not speedily comply.

Since the boy has had no genital alterations, his male anatomy would have to be seen by any and all girls showering. Their discomfort and any other feelings that may conger will be ignored for the exception, and progressivism has once again proven that America is in the throes of collective reprobation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot wait for the first time one of those girls screams that the boy gets an erection!

Obama and Netanyahu's "Make Nice" Meeting: Bad for Peace, Bad for Israel

When Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Obama meet in the White House today, their goal will be to make amends in light of Netanyahu's unprecedented attempts to manipulate the U.S. Congress and the American public into opposition to the Iran Nuclear deal negotiated by six countries including the U.S.

But instead of Netanyahu repenting for what he has done and now agreeing to support the deal, the chutzpah-filled leader of Israel will seek new military weaponry from the U.S. and Obama has already made clear that he will be agreeing to new advanced military weapons. The Israelis seek U.S. weapons that will allow them to blast through the mountains under which some of Iran's peaceful-use nuclear energy has been developed. Their stated reason: to provide them with a way to strike at Iran should they determine that the terms of the nuclear deal be violated by Iran.

On Scaremongering and the Importance of Keeping the Real Agenda From the Masses

Let me draw your attention to one such example, which I think we can all learn from. The Huffington Post recently ran a wonderful piece entitled “What Would Happen If Russia Cut The Transatlantic Data Cables?” Now that’s a great start, is it not? Fear? Check! Disturbing question ungrounded in anything resembling reality? Check! Presupposing that the Russians are so unutterably sinister that they want to shut down the internet? Check! The perfect headline to start a scare story.

The piece itself was a masterpiece in the art. I urged you in my Primer to make good use of submarines in your articles — gives them a very Cold War feel — and I also went on to encourage the use of phrases such as “Fears are growing that…”. Well HuffPo really exceeded all my expectations of the sort of thing we can conjure up if we put our minds to it.

BBC Journalist Comes Clean: “Believe Nothing You Read Or Watch”

Darvall’s blog post comes in the wake of two (much bigger) ‘shock-horror’ admissions by insiders that the mainstream media is entirely fake: a German journalist recently spilled the beans on how media professionals are nothing more than propaganda writers who deliberately lie to the people and help intelligence agencies push for war.
This little device delivers turnkey Internet privacy and security (Ad)

In another story that went viral around the world, a model who built her career on making herself look beautiful for Instagram photos had what can only be described as a total breakdown, quitting the ‘business’ of social media and blowing the whistle on how shallow and fake the entire industry is in her final YouTube video ever (Note: embedded video now fixed).

Japan-Russia military and defense cooperation important for security in Asia — expert

The defense cooperation between Japan and Russia is of major importance for improvement of the regional security in Asia, Shinji Hyodo, Director of Regional Studies Department at the Japanese National Institute for Defense Studies, said in a lecture on Monday.

"Exchange of information about the security situation in East Asia between Russia and Japan is of major importance," he said. "It is especially true in relation to various views on the situation in the Korean Peninsula and on China’s growing activities."

"Military exchanges are also important for improvement of trust," he told TASS.

Are we in for another nuclear standoff with the Kremlin?

Given the resumption of the cold war with Russia, some variation on the scenario described above is not only entirely possible, it is nearly inevitable. The INF treaty signed by Ronald Reagan is in danger of falling apart at the seams as NATO moves its forces ever closer to the Russian border and the Russians respond in kind. The US-EU coup d’etat in Ukraine, Georgia’s imminent entry into NATO, the “upgrading” of US nuclear weapons in Germany, and the radical uptick in anti-Russian rhetoric by US military and political figures has returned us to a danger we thought ended with the implosion of the Soviet empire: the threat of nuclear war.

Early ‘US, UK Intel’ on Sinai Plane Bombing Came From Israel

In the hours after the downing of a Russian airliners over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, there was little to no intelligence comment from Western nations. It was only a few days later that they started giving credence to the idea that ISIS, who immediately claimed credit, was actually responsible.

It now appears that the intelligence they suddenly had on the bombing wasn’t internally gathered, as US diplomatic sources say Israel actually provided the two nations with intelligence of their own about the matter. Israel is so far not offering additional details.

Up to a million, perhaps more may end up in Germany by the end of this year. For 2016 predictions are for up to 2 million.

Heartbreaking: Here's what a U.S. soldier said when asked to justify the war on terror

'You kill. Watch friends die. It's usually quick, almost never quiet, but for the rest of your life, when you remember sitting at the bar with them, they're blown open. You picture the nights you spent downtown at Scruffy Murphy's, but instead of the stupid hookah shell necklace, your boy's jaw is blown off, and his left eye is ruined, and he's screaming. You fight, you kill, you watch friends die, and you notice a distinct lack of change. You kick in doors and tell terrified women to sit on the floor while you and your friends ransack their home, tearing the place apart, because they might be hiding weapons. There is no reason to believe this house in particular is enemy, same for the next one, and the one after that, or the seven before; they just happened to be there, and maybe they had weapons. Probably not, they almost never did.'

‘They want to divide us into several quasi-states’

Syrian Grand Mufti Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun: It is true that in the four years of the war it has always been depicted as an interreligious war. But it's not so. Everyone is running from the places controlled by the Islamic State (IS) or the al-Nusra Front: Christians, Sunnis and Alawites. And they are running to places where the Syrian army is established. The provinces of Al-Raqqah and Idlib are regions where only Sunnis live, yet for some reason those same Sunnis are running away from the al-Nusra Front, which positions itself as the "protector of the Sunnis." Syria is a secular state and 70 years ago we even had a Christian prime minister. We are currently the only country in the Middle East where children in school have only one subject on religion. In the universities Christians and Muslims study together. In order to enter the government it is not necessary to represent one faith or another...

Cannabis oil cures terminal cancer in 3-year-old after pharmaceutical drugs fail miserably

The family, fed up with the fact that the only treatment doctors could recommend was chemotherapy--even after little Landon Riddle kept vomiting dozens of times daily and refused to eat after two months of chemo--looked into cannabis oil treatment. After reading up about it online and researching the details, they traveled to Colorado where such a treatment is legal, to help Landon.

"His whole chest was full of leukemia tumors which is why he couldn't breathe," says his mother, Sierra. "They started him on chemo, but told us that he probably wasn't going to make it. We discussed all of our concerns with his medical team in Utah and watched Landon continue to suffer and wither away as the piled on drug after drug." But rather than give in to a death sentence and play into Big Pharma's only recommendation, Landon began cannabis oil treatments. The results have been incredible.

Frying your food in LARD is healthier because vegetable oils release toxic chemicals when heated says new research

Frying food in lard is healthier because vegetable oils release toxic chemicals which can cause cancer, heart disease and even dementia when heated, new research has found.

Oils rich in polyunsaturated fats, such as sunflower oil and corn oil release high levels of aldehydes, which are linked to various diseases.

And while olive oil appears to be a much better option to avoid this, butter, lard and coconut oil outperform them all.

The findings, based on over 20 years of research, flies in the face of official advice that saturated fats should be avoided and polyunsaturated fats used instead.

Just ONE energy drink a day may raise the risk of heart problems: Drink causes blood pressure and stress hormones to soar

The drink causes potentially harmful spikes in both stress hormone levels and blood pressure in young people.

Within half an hour of drinking Rockstar, the top selling energy drink in the US, levels of the 'fight or flight' hormone noradrenaline in their blood also increased by almost 74 per cent.

Comparably, when they drank a fake energy drink, levels of the hormone increased by 31 per cent.

Noradrenaline - normally only released in times of stress - increases blood pressure and the heart's ability to contract, and increases arousal and alertness in the brain.

After drinking the energy drink, young people saw their blood pressure increase by 6.4 per cent, compared to just 1 per cent with the fake drink.

Voting machine memory stick drama in Georgia sparks scandal, probe

The US state of Georgia is delving into a claim that a misplaced electronic ballot box may have swung a key vote.

On November 3, in the county of DeKalb just east of Atlanta, LaVista Hills held a vote on whether to become a city. In a closely run race, the motion was defeated by 136 votes – less than one per cent of the electorate.

Leonard Piazza, who works in the county's office of voter registration and elections, claims a mislaid memory stick is proof the count was bungled – or worse, rigged.

Cryptowall 4.0: Update makes world's worst ransomware worse still

Andra Zaharia of Denmark-based Heimdal Security says Cryptowall 4.0 is employing "vastly improved" communications and better code, so it can exloit more vulnerabilities.

"Cryptowall 4.0 still includes advanced malware dropper mechanisms to avoid antivirus detection, but this new version possesses vastly improved communication capabilities," Zaharia says.

"It includes a modified protocol that enables it to avoid being detected, even by second generation enterprise firewall solutions.

"This lowers detection rates significantly compared to the already successful Cryptowall 3.0 attacks."

For example, the nasty-ware now alters filenames as well as file contents, so it's harder for victims to work out what's been encrypted.

Warming set to breach 1C threshold

Global temperatures are set to rise more than one degree above pre-industrial levels according to the UK's Met Office.

Figures from January to September this year are already 1.02C above the average between 1850 and 1900.

If temperatures remain as predicted, 2015 will be the first year to breach this key threshold.

The world would then be half way towards 2C, the gateway to dangerous warming.

Kremlin confirms London gave Moscow certain data on A321 jet crash

The UK has handed over to Moscow certain data on the Russian plane crash over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. "Naturally, we hope for cooperation with all countries, which may assist in the investigation of this tragedy," he said. "We can confirm that certain data has been handed over by the British side," Peskov noted. The Kremlin spokesman declined to provide details on what particular data he referred to, adding that so far he had no such information. For the same reason he did not answer the question whether these data had affected Russia’s decision to suspend flights to Egypt. According to Peskov, it was up to investigators to confirm a particular version.

Afghans replace Syrian in refugee flow to Norway through Russia

"Among those going to Norway are mostly citizens of Afghanistan, though there are also representatives of dozen other countries — from Bangladesh to the African republic of Togo". The administration of Murmansk Oblast’s Pechengsky district confirmed to TASS that the number of migrants has in fact been falling. Among those heading to Norway now are mostly young men, while Syrians often brought their whole families with them. The means of migration has not changed. Foreigners arrive in Murmansk by planes or trains, take the taxi to the Pechengsky district and cross the border with Norway from there. Border control service in Russia’s Karelia Republic told TASS earlier that the flow of Syrian refugees started in the Murmansk Oblast in summer when more than 100 people arrived each month. The flow sharply grown in October and peaked in November with 196 people arriving daily. Refugees are arriving legally — their documents for entering Russia are in order, mostly tourist or student visas.

Why So Many Doctors Don't Make Sense

"Many doctors are so completely oriented to fighting disease and ignoring the sick person that, in a catastrophic illness, they often seem to be asking themselves: "How many heroic measures and mutilating operations can be charged to the patient,(or to the insurance company), before death---the final method of consumer resistance---is allowed to intervene? They define a "good" patient as one who accepts their statements and their actions uncritically and unquestioningly. A "bad" patient is one who asks questions to which they do not have the answers, raises problems with which they are uncomfortable, and who does not accept hospital procedures as necessarily wise, useful or intelligent."

Idaho Sheriff's Dept. That Slaughtered Rancher Jack Yantis Was Trained by U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security

LibertyFight.com has uncovered official government documents from the Adams County, Idaho Council meetings which reveal that the Adams County Sheriff's Department participates in multiple classes given by the federal U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security. Current Sheriff Ryan Zollman was present at the meetings. The Sheriffs were required to take both online and in-person classroom DHS courses. A more in-depth search reveals that the Sheriff's Dept. has received many federal grant awards for years from DHS, and must comply with requirements in order to receive the grant money. In addition to the feds, the sheriff also works with the Idaho State 'Bureau of Homeland Security.' Other meetings acknowledge that local Adams County politicians "worked hard at obtaining this [DHS] grant(s)," and were 'rewarded' with grant money.

Vermont's Burlington Police department announced they will be withdrawing from the Pentagon's questionable 1033 military surplus program. This will mark the first time a police department has ever willfully withdrawn from the Department of Defense's (DOD) federal program, according to the New York Daily News. The controversial program is responsible for the militarization of local police departments across the United States, often arming them with left over equipment including advanced surveillance technology, MRAP’s, grenade launchers, tanks and numerous other left over war accessories. The Burlington Police Department’s official statement over their separation with the DOD’s 1033 program voices their concerns over the warlike training and gear:

The Saker: Week Five of the Russian Intervention in Syria: The Russians Are Digging in

There are also reports indicating that the Russians have deployed very sophisticated electronic warfare units including top-of-the line Krasukhka-4 EW systems which are amongst the most sophisticated mobile EW systems ever built and they are reportedly capable of jamming AWACS and satellites in space. Add to this the presense of SU-30SMs in the skies, and you have a force capable of controlling the Syrian skies.

When asked about this Russian officials gave a cute reply: they said that these air-defense systems were deployed in case of a hijacked being used to attack the Russian airbase in Latakia. Right.

The real purpose of these efforts is becoming obvious: Russia is trying to deny the US the control of the skies over Syria and, so far, there is very little the USA can do about it (short of starting WWIII). Furthermore, the Russians are also sending a message to Turkey, France and Israel – all countries which have, at different times and in different ways, indicated that they wanted to use the Syrian airspace for their own purposes.

US .01% pay sports teams, reporters, missile salesmen to sell unlawful Wars of Aggression to 99.99%, continuing long criminal media disinformation history

hat tip: Activist Post

13-minute interview of Dr. Udo Ulfkatte, German journalist, editor, and whistleblower on CIA contracts to foreign journalists to lie/propagandize to sell US/UK/Israel wars:


The US Senate just reported our tax money is being diverted to professional sports teams in contracts to sell US wars to sports fans. The .01% Pentagon “leadership” did not cooperate with the Senate to disclose the “nature and extent” of these contracts.

.01% corporate media is again exposed for hiring weapons manufacturers’ employees to sell unlawful war on Syria to television viewers: 22 different men claimed as “experts” without disclosing they work for businesses that sell the very weapons that would be used on Syria.

Syria is the latest target after ongoing sales pitches to do Iran failed.

How this Mom DESTROYED the Gun Control Argument

Anti gun nuts like to point to mass shootings as a reason to give up guns, but they love to ignore situations where guns are a great equalizer for would be victims of violent crimes. Like this woman who found herself and her child vulnerable:

A mother in Charlotte, North Carolina gave a group of armed intruders the surprise of a lifetime when she engaged them in an intense gun battle while she was feeding her child Tuesday morning.

Semantha Bunce, 21, suffered serious injuries after being shot by the intruders, but was able to scare them off by returning fire, according to WSOC TV. Paul Bunce, Semantha’s husband, told WSOC, “I think it was a shock to the intruders just as much as it was to her.”

After Moscow – has everything suddenly changed for Serbia?

Demands that Serbia received in almost two decades reached unbearable heights with a British 'paper'. This document was written in a form of an ultimatum. It conditions Serbia to practically recognise its breakaway province of Kossovo-Metochia as an independent country, only to get the process of EU accession chapters opened. In effect, the Britons have crashed Serbia's EU integration aspirations as Titanic in a single move. This may prove to be just too much, even for Serbian Euroenthusiastic liberals. But this was not all. On 27 October Federica Mogherini signed, on behalf of the EU, the Stabilisation & Association Agreement (SAA) with separatists in Kossovo-Metochia, as if it was an independent state. By this EU practically ceased to be neutral on province's status and gave Serbia a diplomatic slap on the face... But the best part is that 'unconstructive' behaviour of separatist ethnic-Albanian leadership may actually be excellent news for Serbia.

According to the statement, "upon the order of the commander-in-chief of the Iraqi armed forces and after several days of confiscation, the two planes were allowed to leave Baghdad international airport with all their cargos to their bases in Kuwait and Turkey". Early this month, the Iraqi government had announced that it had seized two planes of the US-led anti-ISIL coalition member states that were carrying weapons to the Kurdistan Region without prior coordination or information of Baghdad... Zameli called on the Iraqi foreign ministry to question the international coalition in this regard and warn the coalition members to avoid such moves in the future.

Turkey Goes to War

Erdogan is out of his mind!

Clearly, Erdogan wants to use the referendum to consolidate his power, establish one-man rule and terminate representative government in Turkey. He is a committed Islamist who wants to repeal democracy and create a Islamic regime that extends beyond Turkey’s present borders into Iraq and Syria. This is why he has been such an enthusiastic supporter of the jihadi groups fighting in Syria.

More important, Erdogan intends to use his landslide victory to persuade the Military High Command that he has a popular mandate for his foreign policy, a policy that has amassed thousands of Turkish troops, armored vehicles and tanks on the Syrian border for a possible invasion.
