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%

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
