Egypt Blocks UN Security Council Condemnation of Coup in Turkey

The United Nations Security Council failed on Saturday to condemn the violence and unrest in Turkey after Egypt objected to a statement that called on all parties to "respect the democratically elected government of Turkey," diplomats said.

The U.S.-drafted statement also expressed grave concern over the situation in Turkey, urged the parties to show restraint, avoid any violence or bloodshed, and called for an urgent end to the crisis and return to rule of law.

Statements by the 15-member Security council have to be agreed by consensus

Diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Egypt argued that the UN Security Council was not in a position to determine whether a government had been democratically elected

Egypt's mission to the United Nations did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Turkish forces loyal to President Tayyip Erdogan largely crushed an attempted military coup on Saturday after crowds answered his call to take to the streets in support of the government and dozens of rebels abandoned their tanks.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is a former general who overthrew elected President Mohamed Morsi, of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, in 2013 after mass protests against Morsi. Turkey provided support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

The can see Obama is a traitor and they have no problem letting us know. We now need to address his treasonous actions and remove him from office.

When Obama goes so shall Hillary after all they were campaigning together... I believe that makes them two peas in a pod...

Bye... bye Hillary...

That's the way the world thinks of America thanks to the first Muslim president a steaming pile of pig shit named Obama!

 True observations. Robert.   Obama's eight year "TYRANNICAL RULE" as an apologetic  "Son of Islam" and "Marxist Community Organizer" has brought America to the BRINK of DESTRUCTION !!!! Only  a drastic change in our direction will save us from TOTAL OBLIVION !!!!

The above picture is true.

They live with this daily we don't... The truth will set you free... Even Jesus knows this and this was the way He lived His life. The truth is not hate speech, it is just the truth. People hate the truth because it calls us all out.... That is where the hate comes form. It all started with Cain and Able....Cain hated his brother Able because God loved Able's heart for God, thus the first blood was shed... And we have been repeating this from the beginning of time...

Have a great day... Sharia law has to go... God would never approve this... God made man and women equal in partnership... He just made the duties of each a bit different for a cohesive and loving relationship....

The world seems to know what Obama is. Why can;'t the US Congress see it and do something?

Congress is on board with obama and will do nothing to stop him!

I agre...90% of them are complicit and the other 10% have no guts...to put it mildly..they come home and " campaign" for your votes and then go back after WE put them back in with a 7% approval rating to do the same damn things.....We the People need to wake up and follow Egypt's lead..BTW king o and hillery have arrest warrents if they step foot in Egypt.

The coup (in Turkey) should have been done sooner, about same time as Egypt ...so now they should have waited till Trump is elected.

Get the UN out of the United States~ They are criminals.

We must leave the UN. I have read that Obama has called for the UN police be ready to protect and/or arrest americans.  He works daily to take out americans and it is getting old.  He sides with criminals and invites them to the White House.  Good God this must stop.

I agree 1000%

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how....

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
