7-26-2016 GCNnews - Today to decipher the events rapidly unfolding in Turkey is difficult if not impossible, without looking back in history. The struggle today in Turkey is between Secular forces led by The Secret Societies and their supporters and a newly emerging pro Islamist Justice and Development Party (AKP) led by President Erdogan. In addition an old player on the scene is The Gulen Movement which is taking sides against Erdogan since their split in 2013 and who is friendly to the west. Erdogan's opposition is coming primarily from the The Republican People's Party (Turkish: Cumhuriyet Halk Partisi, CHP) which is a Kemalist, social-liberal Party This Party has strong secret society backing and also secularist support with addition support from a hodgepodge of groups. In the past the very authoritarian Kemalist regimes being very dominant and violence prone (List of Massacres in Turkey) carried out severe crackdowns on labor, socialist and communist groups while supporting Pan-Turkism Policies which manifested against the Kurds and Armenians. One important insight is that within a very upper class Turkish elite are Dönmeh members moving and residing in masonic circles giving them anonymity and protection and their ties to Israel are an important dynamic, this fact is necessary in understanding the true reality of Turkish politics.

Secret Society Beginnings

The first Masonic Lodge was founded in Istanbul in 1721 by Levantines (mainly Genoese people) living in the tower quarters. Later the history of Freemasonry would experience a tumultuous up and down roller coaster ride into the 21 century. In the late 1800s Alexandre Saint-Yves, Marquess of Alveydre (26 March 1842, Paris – 5 February 1909 Pau) envisioned rule by an oligarchy, this became known later as Synarchism. He was a Freemason and occultist and his work about an elite group governing from behind the scenes became a powerful tool to dominate government. The real power of the secret societies was securing the monopoly of money creation thus controlling all business through their privately owned banks and central banks. The membership into the secret societies was controlled, to only admit loyal associates who would further the interest of the Brotherhood.

Secret Society Influence

We must look back and see the initial effect on Turkey of Ataturk's takeover and special note should be made that his hometown of Salonica which was home to the Dönmeh.

The activities of the Grand Lodge of Turkey reached a climax during the Presidency of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk (1923-1938). Ataturk, a reformer, soldier, advocate of women’s rights, and the founder of the Turkish republic, was initiated in 1907 into Lodge Veritas - warranted by the French Grand Orient - in Salonica. When he landed at Samsun on 19 May 1919 to begin the struggle of independence, six out of his seven high ranking military staff officers were Freemasons. During his time of rule there were always some members of his Cabinet who were Freemasons, indeed, from 1923 to 1938 some sixty Members of Parliament were members of the Craft...........

On the occasion of the 90th anniversary of founding of the Republic of Turkey, freemasons from all corners of the country, Members of the Grand lodge of Turkey, were gathered here on 2nd of November 2013, Saturday, before the mausoleum of Atatur to pay their respects to the founder of the Republic

The Gülen Movement and Erdogan

In 2001 Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Abdullah Gül founded the AKP Party. Erdogan had fought his way up from the working class while Gul worked his way up in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. In 2002-2003 the AKP Party attained a majority in The Grand National Assembly of Turkey. This political muscle was used to install Erdogan as Prime Minister. Since becoming Prime Minister he has quickly been consolidating his power. Early on astute political observers have been noting Erdogan's meteoric rise to leadership and raw power. It seems that men usually become caught up in their own ego greatness and tend toward dictatorships, the love of mammon and power becomes too overwhelming.

While by 2001 when the AKP party was founded, Imam Fethullah Gulen was head of the Gülen Movement which was already a Islamic Based world-wide education movement. Two years early in 1999 Gulen had immigrated to the United States.

The Deep State

The Prime Minister is revered as a moderate, but how far will he go to stay in power?

by Dexter Filk

March 12, 2012


The most widely held perception in Turkey is that the Gülenists have taken control of the Turkish National Police—and that they are behind the arrests in the Ergenekon and Sledgehammer cases. James Jeffrey, a former Ambassador to Turkey, wrote in a cable to Washington, revealed by WikiLeaks, that at least part of that proposition appeared to be true: “The assertion that the T.N.P. is controlled by the Gülenists is impossible to confirm, but we have found no one who disputes it.”

Gülen has cultivated some powerful friends in the United States. When U.S. officials were trying to expel him to face criminal charges in Turkey, he was able to call on Graham Fuller, a former senior official in the C.I.A., to help him remain. When he applied for permanent residency, Morton Abramowitz, another former Ambassador to Turkey, wrote a letter on his behalf. Fuller’s relationship with Gülen, in particular, has prompted conspiracy theories in Turkey about the C.I.A.’s involvement in Gülen’s rise”...........The New Yorker Magazine

Imam Fethullah Gulen &the Grey Eminence behind Turkeys Erdogan & AKP

The open press statement of denial by senior reportedly former CIA official Graham Fuller in April of a line between the Boston Bombings and the CIA, labeling the reports absurd, may go down in history as one of the worst intelligence blunders in the past century. The public admission by Fuller, on a website reported tied to the CIA, of his relationship to the Uncle of the alleged but not ever convicted Boston Bombers opened a can of worms the CIA might well wish never had been opened....boiling frogs post

Sibel Edmonds is joined by James Corbett and Spiro Skouras to discuss the recent failed coup attempt in Turkey. We touch-upon facts and elements that are currently being systematically blacked out by the establishment media, and analyze the main actors and agendas involved. From the CIA and Operation Gladio B to Mullah Gulen’s $20+ Billion shady network in the United States, and the media’s role in implementing the deep state’s psychological warfare tactics, we leave no stone overturned! Don’t miss this daring and bold discussion, and please help us put out the word by sharing the link to this video.



Beginning in 2003 with the election of Erdogan as Prime Minister was a signal to secular forces of a new more fundamentalist Islamic government assuming power which unknown then would uncover a coup operation “Sledgehammer” resulting in literally hundreds of defendants being prosecuted who were involved in this operation. ”Sledgehammer”, which was an operation to overthrow the legitimate government of Prime Minister Erdogan and in addition another scandal “Ergenekon” was a Gladio like operation akin to an earlier proven “Counter-Guerilla” organization that can only be described as a Gladio organization and when prosecutions began these furthered Erdogan's power base. Erdogan was viewed by secular forces including the secret society groups as a threat to the secular government of Turkey, which has always first been based upon The Six Arrows.

Atatürk is the founder of Kemalism. There above six arrows are six fundamental pillars of the ideology:


The basic nature of Turkey is “laicite” in its strict and official acceptance, it is the principle of  separation of church and state.  

The Turkey Constitution in the Preamble sets forth the idea:

Changes in The National Security Council

After Erdogan's new government assumed power in 2003 there were a series of changes made to The National Security Council and Secretariat-General resulting in a weakening of the dominance and

control of The National Council Council enjoyed by the Turkish Military for decades.

The Weakening of Turkey's Military

Author: Steven A. Cook, Hasib J. Sabbagh Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern Studies March 1, 2010 – follows is an excerpt from this article........

The most important changes were made to the National Security Council (known more commonly by its Turkish acronym, MGK), which had been the primary channel through which the officers influenced Turkish politics. First, the number of officers on the council was reduced from five to one--the chief of staff. Second, the legislation required that a civilian hold the office of MGK secretary-general, a position previously reserved for a military officer who reported directly to the chief of staff. The council was also stripped of its executive authority and its budget placed under the prime minister's control”.......March 1, 2010 Foreign Affairs – Council on Foreign Relations


The important point here is that the Ataturk Government established a secular government apart and separate from Islam. Ataturk being a Mason believed in secularism and non establishment  

of a Theocracy. This following phrase in the Preamble demonstrates the founding by Ataturk of  a secular government and not a Theocracy dominated by Islam but instead a government abiding 

by the principle of secularism.  

The NSC and the Secretariat General of the NSC that appointed members are the following:

President: Abdullah Gül

The above changes and realignment gave Erdogan absolute control over the Council while his continued prosecutions of the coup leaders of “Sledgehammer” enabled him to start reorganizing the power base in addition favoring his party and worldview. ”Ergenekon” is believed by some to be part of the "deep state." The existence of the "deep state" was affirmed in Turkish opinion after the Susurluk scandal in 1996. In addition “Ergenekon” was a Gladio like operation scandal which was exposed later by the earlier Susurlik scandal. manifesting in many more prosecutions and convictions.

2016 - National Security Council Members – note the increase in the number of ministers versus military members, intentionally to deny a controlling vote to the military and the new category of Deputy Prime Ministers is how many ministers?

The present clashes in Istanbul and other major Turkish cities is a struggle between secret society and good old boy networks plus a hodgepodge of groups against a moderate Islamic leader Erdogan who is viewed by the opposition as not being friendly enough to Israel. During one of the Free Gaza Movement Boat Relief sailings on May 31, 2010 Israeli commando some maintain in violation of International Law forcibly boarded the "Blue Marmara Ship"(Mavi Marmara Gemisi) resulting in 9 deaths. This caused Prime Minister Erdogan to issue a statement castigating Israel for their actions. Recently with President Obama urgings has reconciled his differences with Israel over the incident.

Major Influential Institution

The Presidency of Religious Affairs also called the Diyanet is truly a state within a state and is being used by the secular state to continue the dominance of the secular state within Turkey. The information that follows comes from the annual budget of The Diyanet which we refer to in this PDF file laying out the Turkish Budget.

2016 Budget

Diyanet sladed to receive 6.5 Billion Lira in budget year 2016 

Follows is a breakdown of the proposed 2016 Budget:

Turkey’s National Intelligence Agency (MİT) and Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet) 

will see dramatic rises in their shares of the upcoming year’s budget, according to the new 

Medium-Term Economic Program and the Financial Plan, which were released through the 

Official Gazette on Oct. 11.

The new program has predicted a total of 1.63 billion Turkish Liras allocated to the MİT, 

constituting a 47 percent increase from the unit’s share in the 2015 budget. Equity costs, namely investments, have played a great role in the need for a hike in the MİT’s share of the budget, 

according to the program. The new program has forecasted around 4.5 billion liras of budget 

resources to the Interior Ministry, 20.2 billion liras to the police forces and 26.1 billion liras to 

the Defense Ministry in 2016.

6.5 billion liras to Diyanet

Diyanet’s share of the budget has surpassed the budgets of 12 ministries, according to the 

financial plan of the program. Diyanet is forecasted to get 6.48 billion liras from the 2016 

budget, although its share was 5.74 billion liras in this year’s budget. 

There was also a dramatic increase seen in the forecasted financial resources for the Family and Social Policies Ministry. While the ministry took 18.2 billion liras from the 2015 budget, it is 

forecasted to take 24.2 billion liras from the 2016 budget.

The Medium-Term Economic Program and the Financial Plan were published in the framework of the budget calendar. Although the draft budget could not be discussed in parliament this year as there was not a permanent cabinet, a draft 2016 budget must be presented to parliament by 

Oct. 17. The Financial Plan includes how much money needs to be allocated to which public 

institutions and agencies, while parliament gives the final shape. As there will be elections on 

Nov. 1, a temporary budget will be released rather than a draft budget. A law will be issued to 

realize this move. 

With more than 100,000 employees, the Diyanet is a kind of state within the state.
In 2013, with over 4.6 billion TL (Turkish Lira),

Persecution of Journalists and Reporters

Turkey according to some sources has the most imprisoned journalists and reporters of any nation in the world. The struggle between powers in Turkey is resulting in a high level of the curbing of free speech, we as Americans must remember that Turkey is not like America and has been subjected to several strongman rulers over the 20th into the 21th centuries.

Seeking Meaning in Jailed-Journalists Count


NATO SECRET ARMIES” – Dr. Daniel Ganser

This fascinating new study shows how the CIA and the British secret service, in collaboration with the military alliance NATO and European military secret services, set up a network of clandestine anti-communist armies in Western Europe after World War II.

These secret soldiers were trained on remote islands in the Mediterranean and in unorthodox warfare centres in England and in the United States by the Green Berets and SAS Special Forces. The network was armed with explosives, machine guns and high-tech communication equipment hidden in underground bunkers and secret arms caches in forests and mountain meadows. In some countries the secret army linked up with right-wing terrorist who in a secret war engaged in political manipulation, harassment of left wing parties, massacres, coup d'états and torture.

Code named 'Gladio' ('the sword'), the Italian secret army was exposed in 1990 by Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti to the Italian Senate, whereupon the press spoke of "The best kept, and most damaging, political-military secret since World War II" (Observer, 18. November 1990) and observed that "The story seems straight from the pages of a political thriller." (The Times, November 19, 1990). Ever since, so-called 'stay-behind' armies of NATO have also been discovered in France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Austria, Greece and Turkey. They were internationally coordinated by the Pentagon and NATO and had their last known meeting in the NATO-linked Allied Clandestine Committee (ACC) in Brussels in October 1990.


These two scandals “Sledgehammer” and The ”Ergenekon Affair”, and prosecutions coupled with Erdogan's majority in The Grand National Assembly of Turkey (TBMM, Turkish: Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisi), usually referred to simply as the Meclis enabled him to wrestle power from the secularists, secret societies, Freemasons and good ole boy networks. Thus he has effected a power shift from the Kemalist networks into his hands. In addition two important institutions are The Gülen Movement and The Diyanet which have great influence among its members and workers in Turkey. The Real Politic view is since Erdogan has assumed power Turkey has been in the process of seeking EU membership and has been aligning it's government to The European Union Model and has joined in with N.A.T.O. operations and initiatives, so Erdogan is carrying out the continued secular government of Turkey. So irregardless of the perceived power shift initiated by Erdogan the existing Turkish government is still very much so, a secular one and the secular forces waging street warfare are merely agents knowingly or unknowingly of past power masters especially the military. Turkey is a corrupt and violent country and this we must focus on to understand the present Geo-Political chaos of modern day Turkey. We must also bear in mind the ultra secret turkish elite known as The Dönmeh and try to predict their alliances, movements and influences.

Ergenekon is the name given to an alleged clandestine, Kemalist ultra-nationalist organization in Turkey which, according to an instructor at the Police Academy in Ankara, most likely has ties to members of the country's military and security forces. The would-be group, named after Ergenekon, a mythical place located in the inaccessible valleys of the Altay Mountains, is accused of terrorism in Turkey.

Ergenekon is by some believed to be part of the "deep state." The existence of the "deep state" was affirmed in Turkish opinion after the Susurluk scandal in 1996. Alleged members have been indicted on charges of plotting to foment unrest, among other things by assassinating intellectuals, politicians, judges, military staff, and religious leaders, with the ultimate goal of toppling the incumbent government.

Ergenekon's modus operandi has been compared to Operation Gladio's Turkish branch, the Counter-Guerrilla

By April 2011, over 500 people had been taken into custody and nearly 300 formally charged with membership of what prosecutors described as "the Ergenekon terrorist organization," which they claimed had been responsible for virtually every act of political violence – and controlled every terrorist group – in Turkey over the last 30 years.........wikipedia


The Donmeh is a secret sect that originated in Solinika. This sect became embedded in Masonic lodges not only in Solinika but later in Turkey. Wayne Madsen has a excellent article in the online “Stragetic Culture Foundation” site. Today it appears that Erdogan is in a life death struggle with not only this sect but Freemasonry at large which has dominated turkish politics since The Young Turks. The Donmeh are connected to Zionism and Israel.

The Dönmeh: The Middle East’s Most Whispered Secret (Part I)

The Dönmeh: The Middle East’s Most Whispered Secret (Part II)


Since Erdoğan's ascendancy to National Dominance he has been struggling with the network of  Freemasons, Donmeh, secret societies, good-ole-boy, and Gladio networks all working to bring 

him down.  These confrontations since 2003 have escalated especially since Erdoğan associates were caught in an oil scandal with Iran. 



The 2013 corruption scandal in Turkey involved 52 people who were connected to Erdoğan's 

dominant political party AKP the Justice and Development Party.  

A wikipedia read is here about 

the scandal.  This scandal involved trade between Iran and Turkey, trading Oil and Gas for Gold using a loophole around the sanctions about trading with Iran. The 

Zionist-Israel power bloc is 

adamantly against Iran and became frustrated with President's Obama reluctance to attack Iran, 

eventually the United States and Iran settled their differences and lifted the sanctions much to 

Israel's chagrin. Erdoğan actions have been reprehensible in covering up the scandal even at one 

time threatening and accusing the American Ambassador of  engaging in “provocative actions.


 Why Turkey’s Mother of All Corruption Scandals Refuses to Go Away

Cover up of 2013 Scandal – Recep Tayyip Erdoğanhad the scandal revealed his involvement with top AKP party members his election to the Presidency probably would have failed so he and those involved covered up their involvement.


Reza Zarrab in federal court has been indicted for violating trade sanctions against Iran. There is evidence he was trading Gold for Iranian oil and gas and the gold was provided by the Turks. This is the indictment here. If Zarrab provides a full confession this would expose the Turkish government's role in the scandal. An excerpt from the article states “The case has drawn much attention in Turkey, where Zarrab was arrested in 2013 in a corruption probe into individuals with close ties to Tayyip Erdogan, then Turkey's prime minister and now its president”.

No bail for Turkish gold trader Zarrab in U.S. sanctions case

This scandal resulted in demonstrations and protests in Gezi Park which first started over a 

redevelopment plan for the park

Gezi Park protests


The Protesters were characterized by Erdogan as terrorists when they sought refuge in a Koc 

Hotel property namely the Divan Hotel being close to and adjacent to Taksi Square and Gezi 

Park where many protesters after being gassed and pepper sprayed fired by police, sought refuge.  

The Koc Group was accused by the government of helping terrorists when all the hotel did was provide humanitarian aid. Later the Erdogan government would audit several Koc companies and would withdraw an over billion dollar ship building contract from the Koc Group.  


Koc Raid


Turkey’s Tupras agrees to pay $22 million in tax demand, fines


Mustafa Koc – passed away on Jan. 2016, he was also on the Steering committee of the Bilderberg Group which is the most powerful group in the world, so when Erdogan began to go after the Koc Group he was messing with very, very, big people. I see Erdogan turning to Russia in a new alliance to offset this new power resetting he is effecting. N.A.T.O. Needs him to pursue their Syrian war so they will continue working with him, that's the reason we saw the quick support for his overcoming of the military coup.



Erdoğan has been not only threatening journalist but jailing them. Many journalists who has 

written very negative stories or articles about Erdoğan have been prosecuted 

jailed and imprisoned. Follows is a list on wikipedia. 

List of arrested journalists in Turkey


It's frightening the record that Erdoğan has about freedom of speech. His record above shows the political thinking that he exhibits. Several of these journalists were exposing his part in the 2013 corruption scandal in Turkey.

Erdogan was successful in covering up this scandal before the National Turkish 2014 Presidential election, so he was nevertheless elected President of Turkey but his involvement in the scandal probably precipitated the 2016 Failed Military Coup. In addition the 2014 election was very contentious and created protests with unanswered questions.


The National Elections of 2014 became very contentious, for power outages were blamed on cats but that did not deter protesters who launched protests against election irregularities. Even later the Elections of June 2015 were also questionable due to insider information alluded to unnamed sources. See the wikipedia sources below.

Electoral fraud and violence during the Turkish general election, June 2015

“In March 2015, an unnamed AKP source close to one of the party's deputy leaders Süleyman Soylu revealed that his party had staged electoral fraud during the 2014 local elections and claimed that several AKP employees were uncomfortable with their tactics. The source claimed that the party had a 5-point plan for every election.

  • The use of bogus opinion polls

  • The intentional miscalculation of votes during counting, resulting in incorrect results being recorded and sent to the electoral council

  • The bribery or threatening of returning officers to stop the miscounting being reported to the authorities

  • The misleading announcement of the AKP's scale of victory early on in the election night to demotivate opposition counting observers and incentivising them to abandon the ballot boxes

  • The use of fake addresses and dead people as voters

The source also confirmed that the sharp rise in electricity cuts during election nights were deliberate and were intended to disrupt the counting process.”............wikipedia

Erdoğan is quickly becoming tyrannical in his actions especially since being caught in The 2013 corruption scandal. His reaction was to begin a cover up that was obvious and which became

Erdoğan's actions have incrementally been such to undercut the military's dominance of the 

government and a weakling of the Prime Minister-ship and movement toward a greater Imperial 


Recep Tayyip Erdogan: Turkey's ruthless president


My thoughts are that he built the new Presidential Palace for only himself to reside in and no one else. He built it in defiance of very influential groups in Turkey. 



Erdoğan drive for power has manifested over several years and is reflected by this list of events 

and actions:


1. 1970s-1980s - Active in Islamist circles, member of Necmettin Erbakan's Welfare Party

2. 1994-1998 - Mayor of Istanbul, until military officers made power grab

3. 1998 - Welfare Party banned, Erdogan jailed for four months for inciting religious hatred

4. Aug 2001 - Founds Islamist-rooted AKP with ally Abdullah Gul

5. 2002-2003 - AKP wins solid majority in parliamentary election, Erdogan appointed Prime Minister

6. Erdoğan's election as Prime Minister 2003 serving until 2014

7. National Security Council – as the new Prime Minister he reshuffled and reordered this 

council which enabled him to gain a greater dominance over the military

8. Erdenegon and Sledgehammer scandals and subsequent investigations and prosecutions 

enabled him to begin to imprison for life his biggest opponents and enemies

9. Syria – invasion with US colleagues and interests this was his N.A.T.O. Obligation but 

was not fully cooperative in the battles in Iraq and Syria.

10. Erdoğan cover up of 2013 Gold for Oil Scandal – this resulted in his break with Gulen who later would become a dangerous rival since Gulen had built up an international network of followers in Turkey and World-wide.

11. Arrest of Journalists over a number of years – suppressed freedom of speech this was 

done to muzzle the truth about the 2013 Oil for Gold Scandal - Erdogan was successful in covering up the scandal.

12. Aug 2014 - Becomes president after direct elections for head of state

13. Elections in 2014 and 2015 were in dispute and caused protests and riots.

14. Presidential Palace – building in defiance of opponents – its a Palace truly built for a 

King and in my opinion he never intends to ever move out. 

15. Military Coup 2016 – Failed 

16. Aftermath of the failed Military Coup – Erdogan started detaining of  60,000 ? people 

who have been described as traitors – this will eliminate a great number of his main 

rivals and most important adversaries and further intimidation of other lesser adversaries 


ERDOGAN'S - TWO PATHS TO DICTATORSHIP – goal to establish new Otto Empire

1. Internal security - suppress all criticism of Erdegon and further a police state with 

Erdoğan's absolute power internally increasing – The MIT is the mechanism being used to 

expand his power internally and externally 

2. International Influence - Co-operate with US. Interests to further International influence 

using N.A.T.O. and other institutions  



Erdoğan – is in conflict in trying to covert Turkey into an Islamic State and it appears he is trying to re-establish the Ottoman Empire and become its leader. He attracts the religious with Islam and has established a loyal following based upon a strong belief in Islam. The Turkish public is waking up to his involvement in the 2013 Scandal and this will deminishhis future election possibilities that is the reason he's headed to a dictatorship.

The Ottoman dynasty or House of Osman (c. 1290–1922) was unprecedented and unequaled in

Turkey has been dominated by Freemasonry, The Dönmeh, The Secret Societies and “The Good Ole Boy” networks before and especially since Ataturk's takeover. Since Erdogan's election as Prime Minister coupled with the uncovering and expose of two major scandals “Sledgehammer” and the ”Ergenekon” terror organization has resulted in a power shift. He barely was elected President by effecting so far a successful cover up of the 2013 Oil for Gold Scandal. Now after this 2016 Failed Military Coup Erdogan has increased his power by purging his enemies.. His direction now seems to be in establishing a Dictatorship on his way in re-establishing the Otto Empire with him as Calip.

Resources and End Notes

The 1982 constitution gives the president a stronger and more extensive role than did the 1961 constitution, under which the presidency was a largely ceremonial office. The president is empowered to summon meetings of the National Assembly, promulgate laws, and ratify international treaties. The president also may veto legislation passed by the National Assembly, submit constitutional amendments proposed by the assembly to popular referendum, and challenge the constitutionality of assembly laws and cabinet decrees. The president's responsibilities include appointing the prime minister, convening and presiding over meetings of the Council of Ministers, and calling for new elections to the National Assembly. The president also is authorized to dispatch the Turkish armed forces for domestic or foreign military missions and to declare martial law.

The constitution also provides the president with appointive powers that he or she may exercise independently of the Council of Ministers. For example, the president is empowered to appoint the members of the Constitutional Court, one-quarter of the members of the Council of State, all diplomatic representatives, the chief of the General Staff, members of the Supreme Military Administrative Court, the Supreme Council of Judges and Public Prosecutors, the State Supervisory Council, the Council of Higher Education, and all university presidents.

Alexandre Saint-Yves, Marquess of Alveydre - (26 March 1842, Paris – 5 February 1909, Pau) was a French occultist who adapted the works of Fabre d'Olivet (1767–1825) and, in turn, had his ideas adapted by Papus. He developed the term Synarchy—the association of everyone with everyone else—into a political philosophy, and his ideas about this type of government proved influential in politics and the occult.

He then began a career as a civil servant. In 1877 Saint-Yves met and married Countess Marie de Riznitch-Keller, a relative of Honoré de Balzac, and friend of the Empress Eugénie de Montijo, a move which made him independently wealthy. He dedicated the rest of his life to research and had a large number of influential contacts including Victor Hugo. Saint-Yves later knew many of the major names in French occultism such as Marquis Stanislas de Guaita, Joséphin Péladan and Oswald Wirth and was a member of a number of Rosicrucian, and Freemason style orders. Saint-Yves supposedly inherited the papers of one of the great founders of French occultism, Antoine Fabre d'Olivet (1762–1825)”......wikipedia


NATO SECRET ARMIES” – Dr. Daniel Ganser

This fascinating new study shows how the CIA and the British secret service, in collaboration with the military alliance NATO and European military secret services, set up a network of clandestine anti-communist armies in Western Europe after World War II.

These secret soldiers were trained on remote islands in the Mediterranean and in unorthodox warfare centres in England and in the United States by the Green Berets and SAS Special Forces. The network was armed with explosives, machine guns and high-tech communication equipment hidden in underground bunkers and secret arms caches in forests and mountain meadows. In some countries the secret army linked up with right-wing terrorist who in a secret war engaged in political manipulation, harassment of left wing parties, massacres, coup d'états and torture.

Code named 'Gladio' ('the sword'), the Italian secret army was exposed in 1990 by Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti to the Italian Senate, whereupon the press spoke of "The best kept, and most damaging, political-military secret since World War II" (Observer, 18. November 1990) and observed that "The story seems straight from the pages of a political thriller." (The Times, November 19, 1990). Ever since, so-called 'stay-behind' armies of NATO have also been discovered in France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Austria, Greece and Turkey. They were internationally coordinated by the Pentagon and NATO and had their last known meeting in the NATO-linked Allied Clandestine Committee (ACC) in Brussels in October 1990.

Turkey: Alleged Members of Revolutionary Headquarters Indicted on Terrorist Charges

(Mar 03, 2011) It was reported on February 5, 2011, that Istanbul's 12th High Criminal Court has accepted an indictment against 22 persons suspected of being linked to the leftist terrorist organization the Revolutionary Headquarters (RH). The group reportedly carried out a deadly shootout in April 2009 in Istanbul that claimed the lives of a police officer and two civilians and In the decades before the AKP's rise to power, the military had intervened in politics four times to curb 

Islamist influence.

In 2013 Mr Erdogan triumphed over the military elite when senior officers were among 17 people jailed for life, convicted of plotting to overthrow the AKP in what

was known as the "Ergenekon" case.

Critics have accused Mr Erdogan of using the judiciary to silence political opponents, and there were 

many allegations of trumped-up charges. 

But his supporters applauded him for taking on previously untouchable establishment figures, who saw 

themselves as guardians of the state created by Ataturk


Born in 1954, Recep Tayyip Erdogan grew up the son of a coastguard, on Turkey's Black Sea coast.

When he was 13, his father decided to move to Istanbul, hoping to give his five children a better 


As a teenager, the young Erdogan sold lemonade and sesame buns on the streets of Istanbul's rougher 

districts to earn extra cash. 

He attended an Islamic school before obtaining a degree in management from Istanbul's Marmara 

University - and playing professional football.

In 1994, Mr Erdogan became the mayor of Istanbul. Even his critics admit that he did a good job, making Istanbul cleaner and greener. 

But in 1999 he spent four months in jail after a conviction for religious incitement. 

He had publicly read a nationalist poem including the lines: "The mosques are our barracks, the domes 

our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers."

In 2001 Mr Erdogan launched the AKP with allies, having broken away from the Virtue Party, which had been banned. 

His rise to power was complete when the AKP won a landslide election victory in 2002 and he became 

prime minister.  wounded eight other persons. The trial is to commence on April 13. (Osman Arslan, Court Accepts Indictment on Avci-Linked Terror Group, TODAY'S ZAMAN (Feb. 5, 2011).)

One of the suspects, Hanefi Avci, the former police chief of Eskisehir Province, was arrested and imprisoned in late September 2010. The indictment charges Avci and 13 other imprisoned suspects with "membership in a terrorist organization," as well with falsification of documents, possession of weapons and munitions, violation of the principle of confidentiality of an ongoing investigation, and the seizure of personal data. Prosecutors seek to obtain a prison sentence of 51 years for Avci and sentences of 7½ years to life for the suspects involved in the attack. They are also demanding a sentence of up to 12 years for Avci's wife, who is among the other suspects in the RH case who are not yet under arrest. (Id.)

The court has sent notices to the Interior Ministry, the Security General Directorate, the National Intelligence Organization (MIT), the General Staff, and the Gendarmerie General Command for the provision of information on the structure and activities of the RH. It has also asked the 9th High Criminal Court for a digital copy of the trial of RH members accused of the shootout with police in April 2009. The current indictment suggests that the RH is part of Ergenekon, "a clandestine criminal network charged with plotting to overthrow the government." (Id.)

Avci wrote a book, entitled Halic'te Yasayan Simonlar Dün Devlet Bugün Cemaat [Simons in the Golden Horn: Yesterday the State, Today the Religious Community], that brought him notoriety. In it, he contends that the government's ongoing criminal investigations to tackle illegal activities in Turkey, including the Ergenekon probe, "lack evidence and are based on illegal wiretapping." (Id.) Experts on criminal law, however, dismiss the work as biased, and it is said to be "well known that the telephone conversations of Ergenekon suspects were legitimately wiretapped by prosecutors overseeing the probe on court orders." (Id.) According to the indictment, Avci, through his book – which describes his being wiretapped on a SIM card – violated the principle of confidentiality of an ongoing investigation, because RH members allegedly learned of the investigation into Ergenekon from the book.
