Turkey, United States on same wavelength

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday his talks with US President Donald Trump last week were the first occasion in a long time the two Nato allies were “on the same wavelength” and they would speak against this week.

Diplomatic ties between Ankara and Washington have been strained by several disagreements, particularly over the United States’ support for the YPG Syrian Kurdish militia, which Ankara regards as a terrorist group.

“The telephone call which we had with Trump on Friday was the first in a long time in which we got on the same wavelength,” Erdogan said in a speech to deputies from his ruling AK Party in parliament.

He said discussions would continue in the coming days on the issues of the YPG, defence industry cooperation and the fight against the network of a US-based cleric whom Ankara accuses of orchestrating last year’s failed coup in Turkey.

According to Turkey‘s foreign minister, Trump on Friday told Erdogan he had issued instructions that weapons should not be provided to the Syrian Kurdish YPG.

However, the Pentagon said on Monday it was reviewing “adjustments” in arms for Syrian Kurdish forces, but it stopped short of halting weapons transfers, suggesting such decisions would be based on battlefield requirements.

Speaking to reporters in parliament after his speech, Erdogan said the Pentagon statement would be discussed at Turkey‘s National Security Council (MGK) meeting later on Tuesday.

He also said that Trump indicated that another call may happen this week.

“If he doesn’t call, I’ll call,” Erdogan said.

The YPG spearheads the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias fighting Islamic State with the help of a US-led coalition.

Turkey regards the YPG as an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has fought a decades-long insurgency in Turkey and is designated a terrorist group by Ankara, the United States and European Union.

Tchaikovskys iconic score wins Christmas

Some of us might not want to face it but Christmas Day is only an advent calendar away. That means listening to Whams Last Christmas, watching Love Actually and the thousands of adaptations of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol, and for the Nutcracker to make his way into our lives, in some shape or form.

The shape he will take this year will be in the form of ballet to be performed at the Satiriko Theatre in Nicosia on Friday and at the Pattichio Theatre in Limassol on Saturday.

The ballet, with music by Tchaikovsky and choreography by Yury Grigorovich for the Bolshoi ballet, will be performed by stars from the Bolshoi Theatre and Art Devotion Dancers.

The two-act story, which is based on the book The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by ETA Hoffman, brings to the stage the universal themes of power, love and evil, together with a fairy-tale setting and enchanting costumes.

Set on Christmas Eve, the story tells of a young girl who receives a nutcracker doll as a gift. After being broken by her brother, she cares for the wounded nutcracker, who later comes to life to save her from the evil Mouse King and is then transformed into a heroic prince. Together the prince and girl travel to an enchanted island where celebrations, hosted by the Sugar Plum Fairy, are held in their honour.

The performance is directed by Irina Lazareva, a tutor at the Bolshoi Theatre.

The Nutcracker
Performance of the ballet with stars from the Russian Ballet. December 1. Satiriko Theatre, Vladimiros Kafkarides Cultural Centre, 11-15 Vladimiros Kafkarides Street, Aglantzia, Nicosia. 7.30pm. 20/25/30/35. Tel: 22-312940

Palmer Report: Michael Flynn Jr doesnt seem too happy about his fathers plea deal against Donald Trump

The younger Michael Flynn appears to have quite a high opinion of his father, to the point that he calls himself “Michael Flynn Jr” even though he has a different middle name. However, now that the elder Michael Flynn has signaled he’s cutting a plea deal against Donald Trump, the younger Flynn doesn’t appear to be too happy about the matter even though dad is cutting the deal to keep his son out of prison.

Michael Flynn will plead guilty to reduced charges and rat out everyone involved in the Trump-Russia scandal, including Donald Trump himself, in order to get a free pass for his own son. Junior was caught up in some of the more bizarre Flynn Intel Group plots, including an alleged kidnapping conspiracy. Once Flynn formalizes that deal, his son will have to agree to be a part of it and he will, because the other option would be to end up in prison. But for now, Junior doesn’t seem too pleased about what’s going down.

Michael Flynn Jr has continued to use his Twitter account to tweet and retweet far-right conspiracy theories from the likes of Sean Hannity and the Pizzagate guy. Earlier today he tweeted an image of Hillary Clinton’s face on toilet paper, which is repugnant, but it’s unlikely to cause any trouble for the deal being negotiated. But then Junior did something far more reckless: he retweeted Julian Assange, the leader of Russian-controlled cyberterrorist group WikiLeaks.

There is no evidence that Michael Flynn or Michael Flynn Jr was involved in the Donald Trump campaign’s conspiracy with WikiLeaks to illegally rig the election in Trump’s favor. However, Flynn was knee-deep in other Trump campaign conspiracies with Russia. His son knows this full well. Junior’s decision to retweet the WikiLeaks terrorist can only be interpreted as a sign of rebellion against the deal his father is negotiating. But in the end, it’s not up to him.

Palmer Report: Hope Hicks is days away from selling out Donald Trump

Who is Hope Hicks? She’s a high ranking adviser in the Trump White House who keeps a low public profile. She’s long been the conduit for anyone in the campaign or administration who has wanted to get a message to Donald Trump. She’s the one who made the decision what to tell Trump about his campaign’s collusion with WikiLeaks and other Russians. She’s also days away from selling Donald Trump out.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller will interview Hope Hicks by the end of November, according to reports from multiple major news outlets. November ends this Thursday. So we’re just days away from Hicks sitting down to be grilled by Mueller and his agents. If she outright lies about anything, she’s guilty of a felony. If she purposely leaves anything out that she knows is relevant, she risks being charged with obstruction of justice.

It always seemed likely that Hicks would sell Trump out when it came down to it, because she’s still in her twenties and she has her entire life ahead of her, and there’s no good reason for her to throw it away. Moreover, if she doesn’t quickly give Mueller what he wants, she’ll end up getting stuck with the kind of massive and prolonged legal bills that she can’t afford to pay. So the odds already seemed stacked in favor of Hicks giving up Trump to protect herself. Then Michael Flynn happened.

Flynn decided last week to begin negotiating a plea deal with Robert Mueller. This means Flynn will end up ratting out everyone about everything that went on between the campaign and Russia. It will give Mueller the knowledge he needs to nail people like Hope Hicks for lying, or for leaving out important details. Hicks hasn’t gotten this far at this young of an age by being stupid. She knows that Flynn’s deal leaves her no choice but to sell Donald Trump out when Mueller comes calling and that’s now just days away.

Palmer Report: Stephen Miller is suddenly in huge trouble in Trump-Russia scandal

To the public at large, Stephen Miller is best known as the Donald Trump adviser with the big forehead who periodically steps forward to say racist things before receding back into his shadowy life as a human goblin. Within the context of the Trump-Russia scandal, Miller is the guy who had the bad luck to draw the short straw and now he’s suddenly in deep trouble no matter how he’s decided to handle things behind the scenes.

As far as the media and the public are aware, Stephen Miller is the only current Trump White House senior adviser who has been interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. It’s a bad sign in general when the prosecutor decides to single you out first, because it means the prosector thinks he has something on you that can force you to quickly cut a deal and cooperate. That “something” is likely the confession from Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who named Miller among those he kept informed of his own efforts to conspire with the Russian government. But it just got much, much worse than that for Miller.

Over the holiday weekend, former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn decided to negotiate a plea deal with Robert Mueller. This makes things difficult for any White House adviser who is interviewed by Mueller going forward, because if they lie or omit anything, they know Flynn’s testimony will trip them up, and they could be charged with lying to a federal agent or obstruction of justice. But at least they’ll go into their interviews knowing that Flynn is ratting them all out.

Then there’s Stephen Miller, who had the misfortune to be interviewed by Robert Mueller before learning that Michael Flynn was going to flip. If Miller lied to Mueller or left out anything important, and Flynn’s confession exposes it, he’s screwed. If Miller was fully honest in his testimony, it might leave him in the clear legally. But in such case he’ll have helped to take Donald Trump down, meaning that his own White House job will vanish when Trump is ousted. This will be a familiar no-win pattern going forward for Trump’s people. Miller just had the bad luck to draw the short straw first.
