The Mystery of the Phrygian Ruts: Lost Civilization or Ancient Aliens?

WARNING: If you are driven to the edge of Migraine by Ancient Alien theories, Lost Civilizations, UFOs and especially can’t stand that dude with the crazy hair by all that is Holy, in the name of Neil deGrasse Tyson, STOP READING NOW.image

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way. There are unusual rut-like formations preserved in stone that date back millions of years, long before humankind is supposed to have harnessed that kind of technology. The formations are located in a remote area of modern day Turkey and are baffling archaeologists and historians alike.

The Armenian Genocide, and the Supreme Evil of Human Stubbornness

The Armenian quarter of Adana left pillaged and destroyed after the massacres in Adana in 1909.

The Armenian quarter of Adana left pillaged and destroyed after the massacres in Adana in 1909.

Last Friday was the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, an event which, if you’re a Turkish government official, you’re much more likely to refer to with some nauseating euphemism like “the 1915 hostilities with Armenia” or “the period of mutual Turkish-Armenian suffering.” But no matter what name you put on it, it was an event where 1 million or more people died, nearly all of them Armenian, as a direct result of deliberate planning by the government ruling Turkey at the time.

I’m not Armenian, nor have I even been to Armenia. But in my life so far, I’ve come across my fair share of Armenians. My freshman year roommate in college was a native-born Armenian. His family had left the country and set up camp, as many others before them had, in Glendale.… Read the rest

Armenians Remember First Modern Genocide

Armenians are remembering what they deem the first modern genocide, 100 years ago at the hands of the Turks, reports USA Today. Needless to say, Turkey doesn’t see it quite the same way:

Armenians from around the globe are in Istanbul for Friday’s commemoration of what’s been called the first genocide of modern times, when up to 1.5 million Armenians died in the massacres and deportations that began in 1915.

A century later, the bitterly contested history is hardly a thing of the past. Turkey continues to insist that the wartime killings were not genocide, while Armenians say Turkey’s denial is an affront to a core part of their national identity.

“There is a question of political recognition of the genocide, but ultimately, it’s about the Armenian story and history being incorporated into the collective memory of the countries where we live,” said Nicolas Tavitian, director of the Armenian General Benevolent Union, who flew in from Brussels for the centennial.

The graphic shows the vast swathe of our planet that geologists call the Younger Dryas Boundary Field. Across this huge “fingerprint” spanning North America, Central America, parts of South America and most of Europe, the tell-tale traces of multiple impacts by the fragments of a giant comet have been found. Some of these fragments, were TWO KILOMETRES or more in diameter and they hit the earth like a blast from a cosmic scatter-gun around 12,800 years ago.… Read the rest

Turkish Man On TV Dating Show Reveals He Killed Two Previous Lovers

Well this could be a difference in cultural approaches to dating, but I suspect that even in Turkey this gentleman is going to struggle to find a new love interest. Reuters reports on his revelation on a televised dating show:

A man who appeared on a Turkish television dating show in search of a new partner shocked the audience by revealing he had murdered his former wife and a former lover.

Sefer Calinak, 62, told Flash TV’s “Luck of the Draw” he had served prison sentences for each of the murders and had been released under an amnesty programme.

“I’m an honest person looking for a new wife,” he told the show, saying he killed his first wife because he was “irritated” by her behavior and murdered a subsequent partner because he thought she was after his money…

Here’s a video clip of the moment that Mr. Calinak reveals his murders:

turkey

Turkey is one of the major players involved in the Syrian conflict (2), it is an area of interest in the pipeline wars, and is paying a high price due to the destabilization of the region brought about by the 2003 U.S. led invasion of Iraq. In short, the shit is hitting the fan in Turkey.

Below you will find an excellent interview and discussion with Sibel Edmonds on The Corbett Report regarding the current state of affairs in Turkey and what the future may hold for the region.

“In this exclusive interview for the Boiling Frogs Post Eyeopener report, FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds discusses her recent article, “Turkish PM Erdogan: The Speedy Transformation of an Imperial Puppet”. We talk about Erdogan’s falling out with Fethullah Gülen and the CIA, and how serviceable puppets are discarded by their shadow government masters when they reach their ‘expiration date.’”

Halal Sex Shop Opens For Muslims

Screen Shot 2013-10-25 at 10.54.27 AMJust what is Halal sex, you may well ask. Reuters explains:

A Turkish entrepreneur has opened what he says is the country’s first online sex shop for Muslims, selling everything from lubricants to herbal aphrodisiacs and offering advice on how to have “halal” sex.

Haluk Murat Demirel, 38, said he had been inspired to launch the site (www.bayan.helalsexshop.com) by friends who wanted sex advice and products but found the content on other websites and in specialist stores too explicit.

“Online sex shops usually have pornographic pictures, which makes Muslims uncomfortable. We don’t sell vibrators for example, because they are not approved by Islam,” Demirel said.

Sexual mores provoke frequent debate in the majority Muslim but constitutionally secular country. There are relatively few sex shops, even in major cities, although in parts of Istanbul those that do exist advertise themselves with neon signs…

Target is Still Iran: Clear Cutting the Middle East and the Coming Blood Bath (Mapping World War III)

world conflicts large

I. Introduction

One of the main reasons that we are on the brink of one of the greatest global catastrophes ever known to human civilization is because people do not have a clear picture of what is happening in the world.

“The chorus of denunciations of the New Hitlers in Teheran and the threat they pose to survival has been marred by a few voices from the back rooms. Former Mossad Chief Ephraim Halevy recently warned that an Israeli attack on Iran ‘could have an impact on us for the next 100 years.’” – Noam Chomsky, August 6, 2008

To remedy the lack of appreciation of this situation, the following maps are being presented to help in the visualization of what the United States of America is proposing, referred to as a crusade by some, World War III (2):

Turkish Government Says Defence Engineers’ Suicides May Have Been Caused By Telekinesis

telekinesis

Military espionage by suicide-inducing mind control? The Hürriyet Daily News reports:

The suspicious suicides of four engineers working at the Turkish military research and development corporation ASELSAN could have been caused by telekinesis, according to a report by the Turkish Prime Ministry Inspection Board.

The report, presented to the Ankara Public Prosecutor in accordance with the ongoing investigation over the 2006-2007 suicides, claimed the victims could have been directed toward the suicides by way of telekinesis, citing the work done by neuropsychology expert Nevzat Tarhan.

Hüseyin Başbilen, an engineer at ASELSAN, committed suicide in his car on Aug. 7, 2006. Halim Ünal was shot in the head with one bullet on Jan. 17, 2007, while Evrim Yançeken fell from the balcony of his sixth-floor apartment nine days later. Burhanettin Volkan allegedly killed himself in 2009.

The engineers were working on a friend-or-foe recognition system for Turkish warplanes at the time of their suicides.
