The Grand Turk
After Turkish election setback, AK Party reaches fork in the road
[Al Jazeera] While the dust from Sunday's local elections in The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
is far from settled, observers are looking to see how President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...
will react to the loss of Istanbul and Ankara, after years of sustained electoral success.

With the results in Turkey's two largest cities among those under question and the election board carrying out recounts over alleged invalid ballots, Erdogan's advisers will nevertheless be analysing the campaign to see how Justice and Development Party (AK Party) candidates lost the two biggest prizes in the mayoral polls.
Maybe because you're Islamist Asshole Tyrants?
Opposition gains have led to speculation whether the vote marks the "beginning of the end" of the AK Party, after decades of electoral success.

"It would be more appropriate to call it a milestone on the road leading to the end," said Kemal Can, a veteran newspaper columnist. Like many other commentators, he identified Turkey's stuttering economy as the issue that had alienated many voters after years of booming growth and prosperity.

FBI Was Giving Different Intelligence Briefings to Candidate Trump than to Candidate Clinton (VIDEO)
[Gateway Pundit] The Democrats and liberal media insist that Russia wanted Trump to win over Crooked Hillary. The entire premise is ridiculous. The Russians had enough dirt on Hillary to fill the White House.

The TRUTH is that the entire DC establishment including the Obama White House, the liberal media and the Obama Deep State wanted Hillary Clinton to win... and they worked tirelessly and illegitimately to make it happen.
And still failed.

On Sunday former prosecutory and Rep. Trey Gowdy joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures.

#2  And anybody involved should be fired. Did that happen yet, or are we going to wait months?

#3  Anyone involved needs to be put up against the wall and turned into mince.

Olde Tyme Religion
Scholars: Lot's Wife Actually Died Trying To Take Selfie While Fleeing Sodom
[Babylon Bee] U.S.‐Bible scholars now believe that Lot's wife was turned into a pillar of salt after she stopped to take a series of selfies while fleeing Sodom and Gomorrah.

"For a long time the text puzzled us," said evangelical scholar Brett Markin. "Why did she look back? But now it's clear: she hesitated long enough to get a few cute selfies for her Insta."

Experts claim that as she looked into the front-facing camera and snapped a few pics, she saw Sodom and Gomorrah burning and longed to go back to her and Lot's life in the sin-filled cities, causing God to judge her on the spot. Just as she typed in her last hashtag and prepared to upload her favorite selfie to Instagram, she turned into a pillar of salt, dropping and shattering the phone before she could post it.
