The head of a Turkish parliamentary investigative committee said Friday there was no question that U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen was behind last year's failed military coup. The ruling party-dominated committee investigating the July coup attempt had 'concrete and solid' evidence pointing to Gulen's involvement, lawmaker Resat Petek said. He was speaking at a news conference to present the findings of a report that is expected to be published after opposition members lodge their views and possible objections. 'We have reached information and documents that leave no space for hesitation,' Petek told reporters, adding that the conclusion about Gulen's role was based on information that included confessions, details of communications between alleged coup-plotters and witness accounts. Gulen, 76, a former ally and now foe of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has condemned the coup attempt and denied he was involved. He acknowledged that some of his supporters may have participated in the uprising. The legislator called Gulen a 'fraudster' who allegedly had been preparing for a takeover for 50 years. Petek also described the government's lack of advance knowledge about the coup plot as an 'intelligence flaw.' The committee was set up two months after the attempted coup. It has been criticized for failing to question Turkey's military chief, who was taken hostage for several hours during the coup attempt, as well as the chief of the National Intelligence Agency.. They are believed to hold crucial information on the failed uprising. Gulen ran a network of schools, dormitories and media organizations in Turkey and abroad. The government says his followers have infiltrated the military, police, judiciary and several ministries in Turkey over the years. The country has labeled the preacher's movement a terror organization and is seeking his extradition so he can be tried in Turkey. More than 47,000 people have been arrested for alleged links to the coup, and more than 10,000 have been fired from government jobs. The government has faced international condemnation for cracking down on tens of thousands of 'ordinary' people suspected of ties to Gulen while allegedly ignoring possible followers within President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's ruling party. Petek dodged questions about possible disparate treatment, claiming that the Gulen movement had tried 'to be close' to every party that came to power over the decades. 'It is understood that they chose to use politics to infiltrate high state organs by being close to the political power and ruling parties,' Petek said. The legislator showed a document dating back to 1967 that allegedly showed the preacher had donated money to Turkey's pro-secular main opposition party. That party said Friday that the document was false and designed to discredit the opposition.
One adorable 5-year-old had a very pressing question for her mother, “Where did Barack Obama go?” In a video uploaded to Instagram by her mother, Taylor had a lot of questions about why Obama wasn’t president anymore, why Donald Trump was, and why Hillary Clinton lost. Her mother wrote in the caption, “This all started because she wanted to know, Where did Barack Obama go? And where is the president’s house. She is still mad.” After asking about Obama, Taylor asked, ““Why do we have another president? So, why did he go? Where did he go? So, why do we have the president we have now at the same spot [Obama] was and why did he leave it anyway?” RELATED: This little girl can’t control her tears when she finds out President Obama will soon be leaving office Her mother tried to explain that a president can only serve two terms, but little Taylor was still confused. When her mother tried to explain that people had the choice of voting for Trump or Clinton, she became even more perplexed and asked, “So, Barack Obama voted for the president now?” Taylor was still frustrated that Obama and Clinton aren’t president, and asked, “Well, why does he have to live [at the White House]?” Her mother replied and asked, “Where do you  want him to live?” The little girl is very emphatic as she says, ” I want him to live somewhere else. I don’t want him to live in Texas!”
What happens when a man walking a dog through a crosswalk gets mad at an approaching motorist? Just watch. Watch the video The man, sporting a thick goatee and walking a type of spaniel, starts pointing angrily at the motorist as if to say, “Hey, I’m right here, how about stopping!” However, the video, apparently shot by a dash cam in the motorist’s car, shows that the vehicle seems to be slowly approaching and is in no danger of breaching the crosswalk lines and threatening the man or his dog. RELATED: Couple on couple road rage in San Diego quickly escalates into a bloody, no-holds-barred street brawl Well, karma must have agreed. As the man continues to stare and point at the driver, he approaches the sidewalk and — wham! — walks right into the pole. RELATED: Traffic ground to a half when road raging men got out of their cars and beat the snot out of each other His reaction to his sudden misfortune, getting even angrier at the motorist as if he just planted the pole there, is funnier than his initial silly behavior. It just goes to show, whether behind the wheel or walking across the street, keep your temper in check and keep your eyes on the road.
U.S. orders for long-lasting manufactured goods dropped in April for the first time in five months, and a key category that tracks business investment went nowhere for the second straight month. The Commerce Department said Friday that durable goods orders fell 0.7 percent in April after rising 2.3 percent in March. The April downturn was the first since durable goods orders fell 4.6 percent in November. Despite the April drop, American manufacturing has bounced back in recent months from a slump early last year. Orders for transportation equipment fell 1.2 percent last month, pulled down by a 9.2 percent drop in the volatile commercial aircraft category. Orders for military aircraft jumped 7.1 percent. But orders for cars, trucks and auto parts rose 0.3 percent last month after falling in February and March. Orders for capital goods, excluding aircraft and military equipment, were flat for the second straight month — potentially worrisome because that category offers clues about where business investment is headed. Durable goods, ranging from refrigerators to battleships, are items meant to last at least three years. Overall, American manufacturing has regained momentum after being hurt early last year and in late 2015 by cutbacks in the energy industry and a strong dollar that makes U.S. products pricier overseas. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, reported earlier this month that its manufacturing index showed U.S. factories expanding in April for the eighth straight month. The Labor Department says factories have added jobs for five straight months. And the Federal Reserve reported earlier that American industry — factories, mines and utilities — expanded production last month at the fastest pace in more than three years.

  • Republican Greg Gianforte won the special election for Montana's open U.S. House seat Thursday night and apologized to the reporter who accused the Republican of “body-slamming” him, CNN reported. >> Read more trending news  With 84 percent of precincts reporting, Gianforte had earned 50.8 percent of the vote to lead Democrat Rob Quist, who polled 43.8 percent, CNN reported, citing Edison Research. In his acceptance speech, Gianforte apologized by name to Ben Jacobs, the Guardian reporter who made the accusation after an altercation on Wednesday. The Gallatin County Sheriff's office later charged Gianforte with misdemeanor assault, CNN reported. 'When you make a mistake, you have to own up to it,' Gianforte told his supporters at his election night rally in Bozeman. 'That's the Montana way.' Saying he was 'not proud' of his behavior, he added, 'I should not have responded the way I did. For that I'm sorry. I should not have treated that reporter that way, and for that I'm sorry, Mr. Ben Jacobs.' Members of the supportive crowd shouted, 'You're forgiven.' Gianforte, a technology entrepreneur, was considered the favorite heading into Thursday’s election to fill the seat once held by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, but his scuffle with Jacobs raised questions about the outcome. Democrats had hoped Quist, a Montana folk singer and first-time candidate, could have capitalized on a wave of activism following President Donald Trump's election.

A video of the moment shows Trump coming up from behind Dusko Markovic and pushing him as he moves in front. Markovic looks surprised, then smiles when he sees it is Trump.
