“Look at the stage our country has arrived in the last 20 years. (The opposition) would take us back 50-60 years,” said Bekir Ozcelik, a security guard in Ankara, who voted for Erdogan. “There is no other leader in the world that measures up to Erdogan,” The Associated Press (AP) reported on 23 May 2023.

This point of view is shared by a vast majority of Turks. Indeed, the incumbent Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is back in power, re-elected for another five years by an official margin of 52%: 48% (precise results are 52.16% to 47.84%) of the votes cast in the second round of voting on 28 May 2023, defeating his entirely compromised pro-western opponent Kemal Kilicdaroglu.

With the AK Party (“Justice and Development Party”) and its allies winning 323 of 600 seats, President Erdogan’s was also able to promise the stability offered by controlling both the legislature and the government.

Of the 85 million Turks, some 64 million were eligible to vote, of whom about 75% to 80% voted in this second round – which was necessary because in the first vote on 14 May, none of the candidates got an absolute majority.

By the narrowest of narrow margins Erdogan did not win the absolute majority in the first go (49.5% vs. 44.8% of his challenger). He was leading the polls before by up to 15% and more; the first round vote was indicative of vote manipulation. That’s typical for the US / Tavistock methods leading to voter fraud: provoking a second round, in which they will usually “arrange” their candidate to move ahead, against all odds. See this.

It looks like this time western plans didn’t work. The second round results are very much against the west’s agenda. The US / EU wanted a candidate pro-western, anti-Russian, for sanctions against Russia, and pro-NATO – all which Kemal Kilicdaroglu offered.

So, for now, so-called democracy prevails. All important, western “leaders” such as President Biden and Madame von der Leyen, non-elected President of the European Commission, congratulated Erdogan for his “win”.

What a band of hypocrites!


After his election win was made official, President Erdogan declared, “We have completed the second round of the presidential elections with the favor of our people. We will be ruling the country for the coming five years. God willing, we will be worthy of your trust as we have been for the last 21 years.”

Erdogan has been a singularly dominant figure in Turkish politics ever since he was elected prime minister in 2003. Three consecutive terms as premier were followed by two terms as president from 2014 onwards.

Entering his fifth consecutive term, Erdogan declared all 85 million Turks the “winners” of this election. He promised as his key priorities unifying the country, reducing inflation and – foremost caring for the victims of the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake near the Türkiye-Syria border in the early hours of Monday 6 February 2023.

With more than 50,000 people killed and more than half a million injured, not even mentioning those impacted by the destruction of property and infrastructure, causing about 1.5 million homeless, the earthquake was one of the biggest disasters to impact the region in recent times.

According to street inquiries, most people think Erdogan had been dealing well with actions countering the disaster.

There are strong suspicions, though no proof yet, that the tremendous tremor in an area where for the last at least 700-plus years no earthquakes were registered was man-made, as part of an ENMOD / HAARP technology – see this.

The other priorities the President mentioned included addressing inflation currently at about 50%, a considerable reduction from the 80.5% in 2022. Erdogan promised to bring it under control. By the way, this inflation has been largely manufactured by the US / west, as an indirect means of “sanctioning” Turkey for her less than “compromised” position vis-à-vis NATO, i.e. buying the Russian S-400 Triumf air defense system, instead of the inferior American Patriot system.

Inflation can be “manufactured” by manipulating supply chains from the US and Europe, on goods and services Turkey needs and has possibly long-term contracts with the west.


What’s next?

Given the absurd ambition by the west to keep dominating the world towards a One World Order (OWO), despite all the signs pointing to a multipolar world, it may not be too far-fetched assuming that Washington and vassal-Brussels will NOT just look on and let Erdogan play out his politics, moving increasingly to the east – to repeat what has been said before – WHERE THE FUTURE LIES.

Massive mind manipulation of the population à la Tavistock and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is one option, leading to internal instabilities, or outright “Color Revolution” type of upheavals. Surely Erdogan and his allies must be prepared for this.

No surprise, then, if he tightens the grip on the military. It has more to do with preventing foreign interference in Turkey’s hyper-strategically placed geographic location than with abolishing “democracy”.

Of course, western propaganda, also paid for by the “financial-military-deception” industrial complex, will never mention this side of the story. Yet, if similar interference would happen in the US or Europe by Russia or China – we would be dangerously confronted by nuclear WWIII – which is, as these lines are written, and as the west’s level of power and influence weakens, a concrete risk.

The more people are alert and awaken to these western “games of deception”, the greater humanity’s chances to avoid such an all-destructive confrontation.
