my scientific powers were clear , even as a museum guide . Northeast of the country , the Blacksea coast ı mean , is wet . It rains . Quite a lot . Oh , why , it's rightly spot on : Spoiler : what was surprising in that second or third year of the A-K-P glory ? The floods that struck town centers , killing a couple of people . Security guy hails from the area and has never heard of that bad a rain . He checks the gallery one end to the other end a couple of times , stops by yours idiotly who keeps to the center of the basement to direct people , chats on this and that , conserving energy and stuff . Yours idiotly has the advantage of reading Leftist newspapers -if available . Yours idiotly asks whether such floods and deaths happened before they finished the then barely glorious "Black Sea Highway" . He thinks for the barest minimum of time and says no . Scientific powers , man , then this is gotta be it . The road , gloriously built right on the shore , because the Gloriousiestly Glorious Plan requires success . Like cutting the Gordion's knot , the Party stupendously opusly finishes a road that was talked about for decades in a fraction of the time and connects Black Sea to Istanbul - as if those guys previously would have to travel across the Crimean side of the shore and descend down through Romania and Bulgaria . Real easy when you do it by the shore , kinda level , kinda straight . And when the rains rain , the water finds a "wall" on its millions of pathways carved over millions of years to the sea . Can't , so merely fills the towns . Leftist newspapers ranted on the failings of the project for years , that it would happen exactly so . The security guy wouldn't read them ; political activist kind of guy . Would punch the wall for silence if he heard Kurdish spoken ; his hand was bandaged for a week for punching some handrails on a bus . Was somewhat surprised that he once sent a caricature he drew to Leman , as Leftist as a caricature weekly can be . Gets a small amount of money to add to the family budget , father of two and like that . "Civilians" , meaning kinda undercover cops (principally patrol dudes against muggers and pickpockets) come to the museum a lot , city center , a cup of tea , themselves conserving energy and catching a breath . The security guy might have been one , had "fate" happened otherwise , considered them "civilians" as friends . Mentioned he had this little coup and not for the first time , too . A savage silence , if you will . Yours idiotly can be useful with his sorry existence ; for a second or two there might have been stuff . this is the essence New Turkey is built upon . While there are undoubted amount of real Communist traitors and the like , present , past and future , the Party builds on that there should be no readiness on people (that vote for Party) to think the others might be right on stuff . On anything , about any subject . Others were thus deceived in all matters . That the Republic of 1923 was wrong on so many important matters and could be improved . In a process controlled by Washington DC and achieved by the Congregation . Democratic debate to fix stuff suddenly becoming the path to 1984 . Any simple arts debate ? One week to discuss Islamic calligraphy , next Renaissance nudes ? Sure , why not ? Except as soon as "Muslims" acquired power on a whatever level one would remain and other would become first foreign , then treason . Have always loved the day the pinnacle of Yellow journalism carried the Qatari artist woman who had an house in the city of Bursa , because one felt so liberated there ; no doubt she would have spent tens of thousands of US dollars so that women of Bursa would be liberated enough to be covered head to shoe . What toe ? That's immodest in the first place . so , it turns out some unnamed bunch of people did not like A-K-P winning in November 2002 elections . So they made heavier rain for 3 years , you know , to topple the Goverment . There's this Kate Bush video starring something Sutherland for us teens of the 1980s , right ? Finally , the PM sends a message to that bunch that he knows and the bunch stops . Because it happens or something . Did we hear that in 2005 ? Of course not . A-K-P is favoured by God , according to Party . There is never any drought in this country when "Muslims" rule it , the weather is always nice , so when heavier rains happen it's this attack again . So , when it rains heavily in Ankara in 2018 and water finds nowhere to go but down the paved streets , now that the contractors build 2 drainage systems for the price of 4 , it's not Allah . Not even Mother Nature . Not even laws of nature . Some countries are emboldened by the polls and want to remove the PM . So they make rain . But of course they will fail . Thus assures us , some professor running a think tank . the Hour of the Opposition on the Voice of Russia can not stop himself and interviews the professor . He should have learned by now , apparently around 50 years old , decades of following the political scene in Ankara , too . That no one can shut up a Party troll , with a call on the troll to calm down and actually explain what's he saying . The professor talks a ton of scientific sounding words and expertly avoids to declare which country is doing this . They really can't simply say the rains were heavy . For they save it for the times when people die . A-K-P municipality allows building over some stream , with one nice tunnel that performs nicely 9 years out of 10 . The 10th sees heavy rains , flooding on the road and 8 women die in truck that's taking them home after work . It's then a hundred years record , an act of Allah , because the loser relatives of the deceased might dream of a court case and financial settlement . New Turkey is heroically and continiously winning court cases . You are some pregnant woman and given tainted blood during labour . So you have AIDS courtesy of the State and the State gives a couple of millions of liras ? Expect New Turkey re-start the case 10 or 15 years after you have won , prove the State is not guilty and demand the money back . Naturally with interest . "Muslims" deserve every single cent and penny , in Western parlance , the rest deserves nothing . 300 people die in a mine , it's an act of Allah and is part of the job , now that in Queen Victoria's reign 1000 died in one single case . Certainly not because the owner's son is a beardy that once hosted the then Energy Minister breaking fast with the miners in a previous Ramadan , because godless CHP would not do such a thing , despite having passed Commie style laws , godlessly learning from godless Soviets who held miners as heroes . Nor there is anything to learn . A mine in the Southeast is closed down , lack of papers . Naturally it goes back into operation , the very next day , now that the Party distributes free coal to win Kurdish vote and stuff . 2 people die , inspectors arrive and they discover a "Muslim" can readily use his motorbike as a truck , carrying 10 tons at a time , so that the State will re-imburse his costs . am so flabbergasted by the thing that ı can't really tell how many times the laws have been changed in these past 16 years for Goverment contracts . At least hundreds , maybe more a thousand times , so that iregularities can not be tracked . To say the least perhaps ? no , the troll keeps talking . You stupid Americans , did you know Hurricane Katrina was a Russian job ? It's so , because Katrina is apparently a Russian name . Likewise for the latest , was it Irma ? So , Putin shows his powers and Americans tell him that they know and Putin shuts up and sits down . Oh , they are usually better mannered , afterall we have all heard that Katrina was like a regular hurricane that happened to New Orleans like every year , but that time developers wanted some Black losers removed . As much as some Puerto Rican losers sat on valuable land during Irma or whatever and they be removed and nice projects happening in a couple of years time . Yeah , the exact moment to remind Canadian Mounties beat the US Federal Goverment to New Orleans ... One is entitled to be a troll , like once in a year , right ? Oh , right on , right there , massive US Army trucks weathering two inches of water on the highways , rolling into the city . Pentagon is always first to intervene in humanitarian stuff . When abroad , because they can put boots on the ground for possible occupation some day . Gotta learn the pathways , bug the telephone wires . When home , why , let them rot ! It dulls troops' dedication to idea that them Americans are matchless in this realm or any other parallel universes . oh , it's always down to saying one knows and the other side shuts up . Do not ever commit to the heresy of why the rainmakers do not make it rain over some Palace , either . The PM would then be angry . He would say he knows . Scaring rain makers to silence . It's practically impossible for anyone who has read me in the last 5 years to forget it , but people even tried to kill the PM with Telekinesis . The expert who shames all experts , chief economic advisor to the PM , sitting on the board of the telecommunications company that refuses to pay its debts to the State , now that it was bought by the Hariris of Lebanon , a natural ally when New Turkey gloriously invades Middle East , a favourite of Greeks with strong punchlines along the lines of Barbarian Turks will eat us Greeks but we Greeks are better than the 300 Spartans . Expert who shames all experts said it and no "Muslim" calls him names . Vanity is inevitable , as ı had opiniotated at the time : The Telekinesis claim might arise from Bobby Gates , the Defence Secretary hitting the cupboard or falling in snow . Or the guy read some newspaper that Disney was doing a new triology and combined it with the Turkish head of the 501th Legion (of Stormtroopers) who joined the Gezi Events in a Darth Vader costume . Now that anything goes . New Turkey beats Lords of Sith hands down , man ... the professor even plays the nationalism card , hinting "Turks" could bring snow on demand . Now a lost art ... you moron Americans , it's obviously some dark magick . Yeah , Turks could cause snow , but can't tell whether it was the pagan horsebandits or semi-Muslim Ottomans . Nobody is more Muslim than New Turkey , nobody ever comes close . Defensive mechanisms cause the ears to hear less and ı merely make a mental note that ı should write a spoilerful on that . Next morning , New Turkey surprasses itself . Breaking news even . Even on the Voice of Russia , because Putin loves robbing us dry . Aydoğan Vatandaş photographed and filmed by the State News Agency in America . Now this guy is defined by the following news bulletins as a "prince" of the Congregation , reportedly running the media stuff . Only time ı ever encountered the name is ? The cover of a book about HAARP , 90s something , which ı possibly had bought ... Everything clicks at once ! HAARP causes the rain in Ankara and the State News Agency people corner the traitor on the streets of America , who is panicked and gets into a cafe and demands the calling of the [American] Police . See , New Turkey showed him ! If he was really running the media , it would be him who hired the State News Agency people in the first place , but ı digress . The thing is ı don't think there are that many people who might link HAARP and Vatandaş , like ever ... see , tech awareness is a big thing among the first time voters , who are by definition young and might want to walk hand in hand , boys and girls . Instead of wearing a suicide vest in the name of Qatar . Main Opposition has a cartoon that has the party leader wishing bugfree gaming . Old school Islamist's leader dons the cape of Superman and saves a car named Turkey , leaving its driver (the PM , naturally) sitting on the edge of the cliff . Targeted ads , man , London offering the people of Cambridge Analytica ? my mum prepares the food for dinner after lunch , watches TV , some Indian series these days , catches the beginning of news , closes the TV to prepare the salad and the like . For 6 months , she has heard America is evil , America is invading Membij -a town in Syria- to create a Kurdish Nation State . For the last week , she is hearing America has left Menbij , seperatists are leaving the town . If America was so against A-K-P , to the extent of organizing one outrage after another , as the news were claiming in the last 5 years , why do they leave right now ? She is not a strategist , has no presence on the web and ı really do not think she is following my years long rant that A-K-P is the most important American project on the depopulation of the Middle East . Not even "What did r16 say today?" stuff which is "apparently" a thing in the city ... the thing is any of the alternatives would be equally amenable to US ; the only candidate out of 6 who promises to close NATO bases in Turkey is long known as a spy of London . Capitalismwise there would be no changes . Potatoes and onions , man , 15 cents a kilo in March , 1.5 dollars in June . Because the West wants to topple A-K-P and stupidly thinks the people would turn against if the food is too expensive . Goverment says it's a conspiracy and prices will fall immediately after the elections when the West learns it can't beat New Turkey ! Why no traitors are arrested for the plot ? Like obviously all the middlemen who drive the prices up are "Muslims" ? ı fancy it's all about the statistics , which show the percentage of fully practising Muslims is in a meteoric fall down the graph ... Yeah , that would be a huge advantage when the Starfleet starts slagging places . it must be some heartfelt affinity with people who talk in terms like LAST . Means LAik Sünni Türk , a strange mix of Sunni Islam and Secular worldview , the very last stumbling block for the realization of what A-K-P was cleared for by the D.C... The Arabization of the country . Turks are bad , Sunnis are most adaptable to be minions of Riyadh and Dhoha , Seculars are secret Jews and Alevis to be handled in the Arab Spring way , with throats slit . The originator of the concept is some woman with head not covered , because she is supposed to represent the modern face of the country . Married to the famous dude , the representative of Lumpenism of the country . Both are blamed to be Congregation stay behinds , too . of this last , there must be like millions . Aerial branch of the Army of Petrol just in this week gets its 6th Airbus A-400 . Insists it's known as the Flying Fortress . ı don't know , its one single engine might have more power than the 4 of an average B-17 or what are Atlas and Hercules in mythology or why the spiritual leader of the Congregation named his website as Herkül , but ı know it doesn't have guns on it . PM born in 1954 , so it would be before him , while the spritual leader insists to be born on the day evil tyrant and the founder of evil Republic passed away (thus the sole reason why the Pharoah died) but is more likely to be of 1940 vintage , so plausibly he might have heard about American bombing raids against Germany and Japan . As a child . Getting satisfaction that he has finally acquired such power . Wait , the land branch of the Army of Petrol insists its newly acquired CH-47 Chinooks are Flying Fortresses , too . Yeah , closer , almost as fast as a B-17 and can fire machine guns from the side windows ... Calling on the sea branch of the Army of Petrol to acquire something , now . so , a setback ? Now that ı had remarked polls showing a well justified disaster for the almost racists ? Ah , turns out they are also valueable . With anxiety on the face of anyone during the brief times last night ı checked TV , wondering would that pass ? Polling companies did a "sterling" job , with people talking about the Brexit kind of setbacks where public opinion prove to be 180° off predictions . One single happy face then , some hostess "questioning" one poll company owner that he had exactly predicted this . You know , he hadn't , let alone continiously "being" an opponent of the Party . People to believe him if he said so ... Pro-Party pundits suggesting the CHP candidate might win local elections in Istanbul and become the next mayor . now , the standart story is , over the last half decade , that the State News Agency gives utterly high numbers in favour of the Party so that people "guarding" the ballots give up . Every party in the race has a right to have a representative for each ballot box and these people are allowed to follow their boxes . If they give up , the story goes , the officials (naturally assigned by the Party) fix the numbers . The PM was declaring victory at perhaps 30% of the vote entered into the country wide system , while the State News Agency was trumpeting more than 90% of the ballot boxes had been "opened" . It naturally takes a whole night to make it 100% of the boxes , always . In the immediate aftermath of the Referendum of last year , CHP mentioned this and was openly mocked . A full year of assurances that they would not allow this to happen again , too . But don't blame them too much or something as the alternative is Civil War , with Party bigwigs talking of shooting and stuff . But that local Party branches worked harder than ever after their debacle . CHP candidate makes a big rally in the town . PM comes next week and the venue looks unfilled and they delay the rally for 3 hours so that more people might arrive . So , the polls close at 5 PM , counting begins and no results of any sort is expected before 7 . About 6.30 and cars begin going around , honking horns . Without a single poll result . ı know , because ı could hear them in the Hürriyet neighbourhood . Night saw intermittent fireworks to the same end . Leftist journalists begging people to stay first , later to keep their signed documents , because you know , one of these days courts will take a pocket calculator and those "receipts" and overturn a couple of elections ... Doubt they themselves believe that , but America needs this . That there is no hope in the end . So people should roll over and die . voice of Russia's dawn to morning slot is run by a Leftie kind of guy sacked from a couple of newspapers and a few TV channels by New Turkey . Naturally "abandoned" and "trauma" are two words that come up . Özcan Tezcan (?) of CHP heard twice on the radio , seen once on TV . "NO PASSARAN" twice , "Don't give into provocations" once . Yeah , the TV talk came last . The younger lot of people were ready for it , like without throwing stones , but using cellphones and the like . If the Opposition can't win this one , which one will it win ? While the newspaper , the former pinnacle of Yellow journalism in the country but no longer the pinnacle , is entirely full with election , except two sports pages and two pages of obituries . Has the leader of almost racists on the front page . Who claims the "Turkish Nation" gave them the duty of checks and balances . The younger generation would be in start-ups and the like in a couple of years . The alternative is one is supposed to work with . For Law an Order . In which you , as a 30 odd father of two , can be slapped across the face because Leman considered you decently funny / fit to print .
