Turkey Set To Block YouTube Momentarily, After Google Refuses To Yank Clips Exposing Prime Minister

Tyler Durden's picture


As was reported earlier, the Turkish premier, embroiled in what increasingly appears a career terminating corruption and embezzlement scandal (it is not exactly clear yet just how involved the CIA is in this particular upcoming government overthrow), blocked Turkey's access to Twitter last night, hours after vowing to "destroy twitter." The idiocy of this escalation against dissemination of information in the internet age needs no comment. Well maybe one. This is what we said in our post from this morning: "since Turkey will certainly not stop at just Twitter, here is what is coming next: "Last week, Erdogan said the country could also block Facebook and YouTube." It now appears that at least half of this threat is about to materialize because moments ago Google just announced that it would not remove a previously uploaded video, one in which Erdogan tells his son to hide money from investigators (one which can be seen here), and which Erdogan demanded be pulled from Google (seemingly unaware that by doing so he simply made sure that everyone saw it). This means that within days, if not hours, Turkey will likely block Google-owned YouTube, if not Google itself.

From the WSJ:

Google Inc. has declined Turkish government requests to remove YouTube videos alleging government corruption, people familiar with the matter said, the latest sign of resistance to a crackdown against social media led by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.


Turkish authorities have in recent weeks asked Google to block the videos from YouTube's Turkish website, the people familiar with the matter said. But amid a national scandal over corruption allegations, Google refused to comply because it believes the requests to be legally invalid, the people added.


Google's refusal to remove videos raises the specter that Turkey could move to block access to YouTube within the country, after blocking the microblogging service Twitter Inc. late Thursday night. Both sites have been central conduits for allegations of corruption against Mr. Erdogan's government and faced public threats of a blackout by Mr. Erdogan. 


Some people within Google had feared a YouTube blackout could be imminent, after the Twitter takedown, the people familiar with the matter said. "We feel an immediate threat," one of the people said.

Sadly in Erodgan's berserk regime, this is not only possible but very probable.

Still, one wonders why Google would not relent in this particular case, after recent revelations that the major internet companies have cooperated over the years with the NSA, contrary to their vocal denials in public. Surely, compromising with its principles and ethics would be nothing new to a company which once swore to "do no evil." Especially since Google realizes quite well by not complying with the government's demand it is making the overthrow of Erdogan's regime, violent or otherwise, that much more likely.

Either way, even without Google's aid it already appeared that Erdogan's days are numbered when not only the opposition but the figurehead president himself condemned the Twitter blockage.

Opposition politicians decried the move as that of a dictatorship. Turkish President Abdullah Gul, who has a largely symbolic role, also came down against the blackout, using Twitter to write that "wholesale shuttering of social media platforms cannot be approved."

Alas, with the government in full out despotic mode, however one which would work in the 1970s but certainly not in an age of instant information exchange, further escalations of locking out internet provides will certainly accelerate until finally the information and entertainment starved country says enough.

We eagerly look forward to see which particular pro-Western agent is groomed to take Erdogan's place. After all remember: those Qatari gas pipelines that in a parallel universe, one without Putin, would have already been transporting nat gas under Syria, would enter Europe under Turkey.

Which makes one wonder - just what is the real goal here?

As for Turkey, we urge the population, largely removed from all Machiavellian moves behind the scenes, to catch up on their favorite YouTube clips: they will shortly disappear for good.

There's that PC word "HATE"

I think this thought of hate never enters the mind of a predator.

Do Zionists hate their sheep (GOYIM), normally you take care of the sheep well prior to slaughter, of course of you have 'conspiracy' sheep whining about an impending slaughter you removed them from the farm.

I would prefer to imagine Hillary Clinton at a funeral for the Branch Davidian Children, and she watches the incineration everyday over&over.

Did you know that it was Hillary that told Bill and Reno to get on with killing the children, she felt that if it dragged on it could hurt bill.

Did you also know that RENO would host party's at the Florida capitol and they would have all night party's watching child-porn and snuff films all confiscated from real criminals.


Nope Hillary is one sick bitch, I  don't see her at a strip club, I only see her at funerals worshipping death.

This story just illuminates how scared governments are of the internet, social media, P2P, Bitcoin.

It's more powerful than government, than your fake "laws", than your fake society.  Computational power trumps delusional power each and every time.  There's nothing they can do about the internet, about people sharing information by word of mouth or by protocol.  There's nothing they can do about .torrent technology.  There's nothing they can do about money-laundering anymore.  There's nothing they can do about Bitcoin.  There's nothing they can do about people writing whatever code they want.

Government is a complete and total joke.  Government is completely powerless.  Those fake libertarians who believe in any form of government censorship and limitation of the internet will go down with the government ship.

Zionhead! Aesthetic right. The neck thing. It was meant to be aesthetic like to draw the viewer into interaction; like a modernist's work of art. I had a Labradoodle that  would first play romper room with other dogs that my wife and I used watch for clients. Then the doodle would go into the back room and bring out a toy and drop it in front of him. When one of the young playful dogs would go to get the toy the Labradoodle would attack with full force.

The goddamn NECK is not aesthetic it is viscious..Probably worse for you though. Maybe that thing is real.

The CIA  and their team before them has murdered +100 MILLION humans on earth to make the USD what it is,...

But like always on ZH, DEATH is tertiary symptom of the game, and not first order,

First order is to take out any country that doesn't trade their heroin,cocaine, blood, oil, fetuses in US Dollar.


Of course the CIA doesn't hate, of course the CIA doesn't want everyone to die,...

The CIA exists as a MOB ENFORCER as a PROTECTOR so that world over every child-sex slavery mobster is protected so long as he sells 5 year old girls for USD, but should that businessman ask for EURO's or GOLD, he will be taken out.

CIA can be thought as an offshore arm of the US Treasury, abroad they are the MAFIA that makes sure that every criminal enterprise uses the USD to trade, when you trade in USD you are protected. If you fail to trade in USD, then you go to jail.

CIA is the only one with a license to kill, in the name of US Dollar reserve black-market status.


Sure many party's engage in child slavery traffic, but only the CIA ( world policeman ) goes after those selling children in curreny 'other than USD'.

They would have to set up their own companies to do that.  Which, yes, they could do, but Chinese owned shops and dsitributors (ours is completely Peruvian except for me as an owner and buying assistant) might not be popular and would require their own capital.

Bearings are just one of MANY products China successfully exports to distributors like us.

unfortunately his ban was wrongly translated to "banning you boob"

this caused an immediate and massive uproar among the general population as this truly was seen an afront to civilization itself and of course meant "no, Mr. Prime can't blame the CIA for this one. They would never ban You Boob." The ceremonial President then ordered the Prime Minister be immediately stripped of his clothing and demanded a complete regurgitation.

Needless to say "vox populii was impressed."

Hey do your cow sounds always come out as meows or you got something up your rear end like a but plug

Listen lay off of Putin. Man is a saint.

He kicked out the Tribe oligarchs and took the money and payed salaries and pensions and saved the military from becoming just like Ukraine's, where the Tribe Oligarchs are still in control look at Yani and Tymoshenko, Putin also made sure recovered money went into the healthcare system. Apparently you can get a surgery in Russia and it costs you nothing, now how would that go down in the USA? I really recommend surfing through this dude's youtube channel, it will open your eyes about Russia.

I think the man has tons of integrity but maybe you like your leaders dont.

Here are you men of integrity in Ukraine for example

here is the old Tribal crowd from Russia in this older article when they were running rampant stealing and looting

where ukraine's money went

Everywhere on tribal mass media there is a constant attack on Putin and Russia, the word is demonizes the man that stopped the Greatest Jewish Mafia Heist of the World's Greatest Natural Resources.

You forget one simple fact. All of Ukraine's past governments were hand selected by Putin himself. Why do you think Yanu fled to Russia and gave Putin the letter, begging him to return him to power.

What do we really know about the gas contracts between Russia, the Ukraine and Europe? Russia didn't get paid they say. Ukraine had a contract to buy gas at a 40% discount. The contract wasn't extended because Russia didn't get paid (they say). I figure Russia didn't like selling their gas at a 40% discount, sending it through pipes across Ukraine and keep paying off the Ukrainians for the service. Money and margins are tight these days. Where would you start cutting cost and maximizing profits if you were Russia?

Get more control of the flow, control the transit country even more and profit. Putin isn't a saint, he's just a badass resource baron trying to capitalize more on the resource wealth of his country. Totally old school and predictable.

They'll never shut the internet down, too much money is being made by the tribe in social-networking and SPYING.

What they will do is sabatogue the DNS system to black-list unwanted non-PC sites.

Conspiracy sites fall into that category, they can easily go black, if your not knowledgeable about how the WWW/tcp-ip works.


Biggest problem right now is mind control. Getting people on sites like ZH to think correctly.

Essentially you ban/delete those that are not PC, eventually they'll fine tune how to control dissent.

They can make sites not under their control 'black'

SPYNET is NOT your friend, ... sure the west can justify all kinds of MORONIC reasons why this is un-democratic to get rid of the NSA spy machine out of Turkey,

But let's look at the facts, when you use YOUTUBE your letting them place deep-cookies on your computers and your telling the NSA all about your interests, they also log every video you ever see, forever, Sure if you a 'geek' you can run 'ccleaner' and wipe most of this stuff, but to get deep you need to use 'forensic sw', and then you would be surprised how deep they're now putting shit for law enforcement to find.

Twitter, Google (YOUTUBE) are all part of the NSA/CIA,

So let's just substitute "TURKEY stops the NSA from spying on their people"

Same as GOOGLE spyware and facebook in CHINA, they're not allowed why should the NSA/CIA have more info on chinese people than the MSS? SO China has their own FB, and YAHOO, and boobTube.


Make certain for sure, there is more to this story than Ergondan, not wanting him to make an ass of himself, besides he's a CIA guy that the CIA now wants replaced,

Why should any country allow their countrys to be destroyed with twitter, and youtube?

Here's the deal, in the USA if you photo a cop beating someone, as soon as you upload the cop's are sent by google your address, where the cop's come to your house, and take your phone(camera) and force you to delete, ... these powers don't exist in TURKEY. COMPECHE?


Everytime you use GOOGLE(UTUBE) clean after wards with CCLEANER

Time to time use "AUTOPSY" its a free law enforcement tool for looking deep on a computer for building a case, it will find shit that you didn't even knew was on your computer.

I'm trying to convince people to leave Twatter and Fakebook.  Why do you want to help people get their fix?

You don't have to use it for those services, it's not just twitter, youtube and facebook blocked.  Lots of news sites like zerohedge are banned around the world.  This is only one more tool in the toolbox to finding information and in some case perserving individual safety.  Besides why would anyone sign up to those services and use them with their real information?  Much more fun creating hundreds of junk accounts with a disposable "pay and go" phone and sniff around.  One positive about a bad economy, you can get a phone as a online 'passport' for so little off the classifieds today.

Besides it doesn't really matter.  April 8th Windows XP support runs out and on April 9th I'm willing to bet 1.5 billion blue screens of death pop up because...well because it's too big of a party for anyone to miss isn't it?  It's okay though, banks are spending your money to keep a 13 year old dead OS alive because they don't like progress or technology.  It's too bad for them, they should have migrated 5 years ago along with everyone else when they were told to.  Oh well sucks to be them, the dumbasses.

There just isn't anyone left that cares or knows enough about XP today.  BTW, embedded XP is in e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g that makes stuff run.  From factories, grocery stores, tanks, bombs, planes, cities...everything.  Worldwide.  Everywhere.  Whatever comes out will probably also finally finish off the window 2003 installs still chugging along as well, so throw another billion systems on the already counted 1.5 billion systems.

Then finally...blessed silence and watch how fast unemployment drops to zero.  All those machines in a smouldering pile, not enough hands in IT to rebuild any of it in any meaningful timeframe.  And all that process driven work in all sectors that need to be done without the graceful hand of automation that took most of your jobs.  Means all of you should get your resumes polished up.


Might also want to update your bank passbooks and get some cheques btw.  For those that are too young to know, go ask the people at the counter of your bank for a pass book.  Might as well play the banking situation to it's scripting conclusion before May because the offered nonsense is just that. get your passbooks updated and get some cheques.

Oh and move to a credit union...the retail banking sector and every service and function they run is going to be a shitty mess after the final XP hooraa! 

Protip, don't move the mortage and some of you will end up with a free house.  The robosigning thing was very enlighting on the massive gaps on tracking a managed market where systems were available to look up stuff.  That will not be the case here.  Banks will be blind, deaf with no memory to refer to any purchase after the fact.

Sort of like the conclusion of Fight Club.

I might call for a Turkish Spring, but Turkey is a NATO nation and those govenments are not to be fucked with.

I'm so mixed about this one. Is blocking Google (and thus the NSA) such a bad thing or does the block only work in one direction?

"Do No Evil" Google/YouTube is real quick to go on record saying they won't take down videos critical of Turkey's Prime Minister while at the same time they are even quicker to take down videos critical of certain issues/subjects in the USA.  They follow the same bullshit American double standard used by the government(s) in the US - like the government calling Ukraine's coup (by violent Nazis and thugs) "peaceful" while they look the other way from, or even condone, the violent suppression/beating of protesters on Wall Street or the mass pepper spraying of seated protesters at UC Berkley. They can do whatever they want whether it is legal or not or moral or not because they think they are "indispensable" or "exceptional" (read - better than us and the rest of the world).

I love my country but I am starting to hate our government and the corporations that control it.

Ergodan is like a the best bitch zionists have,

I'm surprised that Israel isn't calling for control of these social networking sites, ... certainly somebody must be calling for an "Israeli Spring"

But Israel like the USA has all social media hard-wired to the cop shop, these days there are 3rd party's offering the cop's 24/7 info.

For instance if you text SMS "GOLD" or "DRUGS" the cops get the phone number, name, ID, location of suspect, auto info,... cops stop and talk, take the gold,...

Same-Same you talk about GOLD, GUNS, ... CASH anything on any social networking the local cop-shop gets a RED-FLAG, ... there are now teams of local cop shops using these tools all over the USA.

Even small town cop shops are using this shit, cuz most 'criminals' are fucking stupid, post their shit on facebook.


My favorite is recording a COP incident on your phone, the instant you post COP SHIT on the PHONE like a cop beating somebody aka RodneyKing your address is sent to the cop-shop, and you can count on getting a knock&talk on your door within 5 minutes, if you agree to surrender your phone and delete all files from youtube, they leave you alone, if you argue with them, they take you to the station and shove a broomstick up your asshole, and then lock you in the cage with 'lover larry'.

We had our attempted Israeli Spring in 2011.  If you recall, we started the tent-camps "thing" that was picked up in the US.  At one point we had 5%+ of the population in the streets.  During the "Night of Rage" we stormed banks and smashed them - there were open fights with cops on the streets - we took over the transportation hubs and shut them down.  However, it all was deflated by an election, in which the "leaders" of the movement were quickly co-opted in to the elite circles of the government.  I know many people dislike this country (for good reason), but internally it's a microcosm of the larger world-elite problem.  We're ruled by 18 families who control all of the corporations and 80% of the wealth.  In the movement, they sent out their PR consultants and threw money into the movement, as they fought to steer the momentum toward their own oligarchic interests.  

The State was controlling social networking sites - arresting people who showed up based on calls on FB.  People hae FB posts used as evidence in trials.  The state used FB, Twitter, etc. to create lists of the people they wanted to arrest.  So you're correct, the social media is hard-wired to the cop shop.  It's interesting to note the first group who's demands were met in the protest were the cops - immediate pay hike and then the protesters were the new enemy.  

I wouldn't be surprised if Erdogan was merely the victim of the US/Israel at this moment.  He's Turkish - ooo, he must be corrupt - make some videos and push that shit on the fakebook.  If you recall Zbig's thesis involved gaining control of Turkey as another vital pivot.  I wouldn't be surprised if it was a flank move by US/Israel to manage Syria, since they are getting beaten back at the border of Russia.  

Makes sense that Erdogan would fight back by banning, but when you do that - you pretty much feed the lib-tard consumers of social media's liberatory enslavement.  Cue the Femen nudistas to make public shows of urinating on Erdogan's photo so that trendy Westerners can experience the horrific "oppression" first hand.  Cue the hot-Turkish chick "we want freedom" video production crew, to draw sympathy for another American coup.

I am about done with Google/Microsoft and their bullshit.  I have five PC's running and one Apple Ipad2.  Hell, I just bought another comp for the Mrs two weeks ago.  So I have XP, Vista2, Win7 and two Win8.  The Apple never has issue of course.  The Mrs. didn't like the Win8 tile interface and asked where the start button was.LOL  You download that now it takes some time to get the Win8 OS to where you can actually use the fucking thing.  Personally I hate that OS but I also hate the price of the Apples.  Is there a one ounce gold coin inside of them somewhere?

I really don't browse that much on some comps but two days ago I noticed something causing a hang on my blogging computer.  I use my old Vista2 here because I need my most powerful comp for work related graphic things.  I do not blog on it at all and not even on my own website.  I run Malwarebytes pretty religiously.  So I ran a full scan and much to my surprise, it found an astonishing 754 PUP files on my Vista2 OS.  I know that not all PUP files are dangerous but usually the scan turns up zero items.  Maybe one or two but not enough affect the performance of the comp.

I could not easily remove the suspicious items so I searched around and found that this been happening to others.  All of the file extensions are from google and many from google chrome which is not even installed on the system.(I use firefox)  On the computer I use for work I use ixquick for a search engine and have had little problem other than wasted time because it is not as specific as google is.  On my blog comp, I have only been able to kill 91 PUP's so far. 

Where ever all of this crap came from, it sure is stubborn but so am I.  I still like my old blogging computer so I will fight this shit.  Malwarebytes works pretty well but I have found that it takes a lot longer then it used to.  Whatever this is is much more complicated than anything I have ever seen before.  Hell, I lost web connectivity on my blog comp at 9:40 CST tonight.  It would not even recognise the router but my other comps would.(except for XP which is pretty much retired now)  The MBAM logs were odd, pure google crap.

What are you guys/gals seeing?    

Update:  The scan completed and I think I finally killed them all.  For now.  Again.

Not sure about your graphics need, but these days almost everything is possible on Linux desktops.  AND if you want to smooth the learning curve, you can always use a Linux variant that looks and mostly acts like Windows (except it does not get infected with viruses)

Thanks for the tip JUCH.  I will check that out  I've heard a lot of good things about Linux over the years.  What might be a good idea would be to wipe the hard drive on the XP machine and experiment with Linux.  I don't really want to give up on that unit but that was Mrs. M's comp.  I think she has everything off it that she wants now but who knows?  The chassis is a Toshiba Satellite and I like those.  The hardware is good but the OS about done with. 

I do not design video games or anything like that.  I basically design irrigation systems or measure satellite images for bidding purposes.  Nothing too crazy.  Largely, I wanted to high definition and rather large screen so I can see what the hell I am looking at and what I am doing.;-)  What I do not need to be doing is fucking around chasing down malware all of the time on several operating systems.  Can't these people fuck off already?  All I do is remove bullshit from my computers anymore.  I have never fucked with anyone else's computer and dropped bullshit on them.  Most of it is cookies but a lot of it is spyware.  

Seriously?  In fifteen years, I have never bought anything from an internet pop-up ad and I never will.  Stop fucking data-mining me!  It is pretty easy to tell who is looking by what ads pop up if they can get through ad-block.  Why do corporations assume that I am always looking to buy something?  Maybe I am simply doing price research in an attempt to discover market prices and I don't need 100 pieces of shit spyware being downloaded into any of my systems by every website I go to.  No one needs that bullshit.

For that matter, if it is the NSA spying, then don't those fuckers get it by now?  What more is there to know about me that they don't already know?  Of course, I do not like the bloated federal goverment. Of course I do not like the Fed.  Of course, I don't beleive a word any politico says.  I have been me for many years so what has changed?  Nothing.  I hate you .gov fucks, from ANY country, so get the fuck out of my computers.  Go fuck each other in ass some more on whatever piece of land you want and leave me. and the rest of us, the fuck out of your shitshow.  There are plenty of deserts in the world where you can all go shoot one another in the head.  Leave us out of it.

It's neverending with these desperate despots.  The are all nothing more than a swarm of gnats on a hot summer day trying to suck what they can out of you on a cheap shot.

Manny: A few simple things to check out on your computers:

1- Check your installed programs to see if any Google shit is listed. Uninstall it/them.

2- Check your program files (My Computer) in C drive/program files for any Google folders. Delete them.

3- Check your "scheduled tasks" to see if Google is automatically running updates for anything. Delete those tasks.

I've safely done all of those even though I build & monitor websites for various friends using Google Analytics and other servcices. Let me know if that helps. You can find my contact info by clicking on my name.

Google Analytics... Widely used on websites, even by big companies that have no idea what data they give from their selves AND their visitors.

Google Plus code.

Google Adsense code.

I just mentioned the ones used on this website... Anyone still think they can be anonymous?

By his own actions, Erdogan confirms what many people worked out long ago: below the surface Islamic governments are fascist dictators. The amount of fascism they impose is relative to how much resistance there is.

If only Erdogan had his own fakebook, funded by Turkish (secretgov) VCs - he wouldn't have to block Twatter and FB.  They'd simply spin positive stories about how his corruption is really there to help people get healthcare.

Religion: One Monkey telling other Monkeys that his invisible, "all powerful friend"  wants them to do this, that, and the other. 

Religion is always accompanied by hypocrisy and corruption.  How could it be any other way?


Luckily for us, our ancestors lived through the dark ages and came out of it with the ideas of the renaissance and enlightenment.  

But the Turks, the Egyptians, the Arabs, the Iranians?  They cannot learn from our collective experience, apparently.
