SWINGING HARD STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX: UK’s new PM Theresa May

UPDATE: Great Britain

These politicians may have their imperfections, but because of them, environmentalists and globalists socialists are not happy today.

One of Theresa May’s first acts as the new Prime Minister of Great Britain has been to dismantle the climate change department and file it under the new Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.

In addition, Prime Minister May has assigned Andrea Leadsom to the position of Environment Secretary.  Leadsom, who briefly campaigned against May,  is known for supporting fox hunting and for opposing climate change measures.

Wow.

This means that the climate change and environmentalist agenda received a big blow today– because their issues are not getting special treatment anymore– but will be addressed as part of a larger program that prioritizes Great Britain’s needs in the business, energy and industrial sectors.

More wow…

In addition, Prime Minister May has assigned the colorful and opinionated Boris Johnson, former mayor of London, to represent Britain around the world as Foreign Secretary.  In an article published by The Sun, Johnson referred to Obama as “the part-Kenyan President.”

Here is an excerpt of Boris Johnson’s opinion piece, published on April 22, 2016:

Something mysterious happened when Barack Obama entered the Oval Office in 2009.

Something vanished from that room, and no one could quite explain why.

It was a bust of Winston Churchill – the great British war time leader. It was a fine goggle-eyed object, done by the brilliant sculptor Jacob Epstein, and it had sat there for almost ten years.

But on day one of the Obama administration it was returned, without ceremony, to the British embassy in Washington.

No one was sure whether the President had himself been involved in the decision.

Some said it was a snub to Britain. Some said it was a symbol of the part-Kenyan President’s ancestral dislike of the British empire – of which Churchill had been such a fervent defender.

Some said that perhaps Churchill was seen as less important than he once was. Perhaps his ideas were old-fashioned and out of date.

Well, if that’s why Churchill was banished from the Oval Office, they could not have been more wrong.

In addition, on May 18, 2016 Boris Johnson was announced as the winner of The Spectator‘s Offensive Poetry Competition about Erdoğan (Turkey’s Islamic President) — where he referred to Erdoğan as a goat… well… I’ll let his poem describe it:

Quote from The Spectator:

“I’m pleased to announce that we have a winner of The Spectator’s President Erdogan Offensive Poetry competition, and here it is [bold added for emphasis]:

There was a young fellow from Ankara 

Who was a terrific wankerer

Till he sowed his wild oats

With the help of a goat

But he didn’t even stop to thankera.

The author of this winning entry is former Mayor of London and chief Brexiteer, Boris Johnson MP.”

And as to throw Jean-Claude Juncker into a tizzy (Juncker is President of the EU’s European Commission)– Theresa May has assigned  David Davis as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union. Here is what Davis has to say about the EU and immigration:

“Once the European nations realize that we are not going to budge on control of our borders, they will want to talk, in their own interest.”

Sounds like Prime Minister Theresa May has come out swinging hard, straight out of the box.

Someone has to say the truth…

MURKY IN TURKEY: A confusing military coup unfolds

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

UPDATE Saturday, July 16, 2016: An even uglier turn of event as Hamas (a terrorist group) parades down the streets of Gaza in support of Turkey’s Islamic President Erdogan.

A military coup is under way in Turkey. The Turkish state-controlled Anadolu Press Agency has reported a military helicopter attack against police special forces headquartered in or near Ankara.

You should not be surprised that this coup is taking place.

Since becoming Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been openly embracing Islam– while flirting with Western values for the purpose of advancing commerce. In spite of his ambivalent persona, Erdogan is an Islamic leader, whose repeated censorship of Twitter, social media and free speech has divided young Turks and created general resentment among the Turkish people, most of whom had become secularized after decades of changes resulting from the modernization started by Turkey’s first president, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.

In addition, Erdogan’s government has been dealt a strong blow with the recent Islamic terrorist bombings in Istanbul’s airport. It should also be noted that there are ongoing supply chains from the Turkish territory into ISIS-held areas. This is all taking place in Erdogan’s watch. But Erdogan’s actions have shown that he is more interested in defeating Assad in Syria than in defeating ISIS. 

Erdogan’s Islamic roots have been well documented through his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP)– which has been long  accused of seeking to impose conservative Islamic values on Turkish society.

In the midst of all this, Turkey remains critical for NATO’S strategies in the region.

Ironically, Erdogan behaved like a millennial today and did a veritable about-face when he found himself limited to transmitting his message to the people of Turkey through iPhone’s FaceTime (a video social media app)– from the location where he was vacationing. As millennials would say, I can’t even

As of the time of this post, it is impossible to know which side is winning– since Ankara, the capital of Turkey, is in intermittent blackouts– but reports indicate that the military is gaining control of parliament buildings, and explosions are taking place.

Given the unfolding disaster in Turkey, this is a good time to revisit “There is Anxiety in Ankara” — which I published on May 17, 2014 outlining Turkey’s geopolitical reality, vis-à-vis Russia and as a member of the NATO Alliance.

It is in Ankara, after all, where the fate of this coup will be decided– and inevitably where most blood will be shed.
