A Mother’s Story Shows Us “ISIS™” In Syria is Nothing More than a British Regime Change Operation

by Scott Creighton

British citizen Maha Elgizouli and her two “ISIS” sons

A new revelation regarding the “ISIS™” characters in Syria expose the most visible of these guys as being British losers, probably recruited by MI6 to head over to Syria and destabilized the country via terrorism in a regime change operation started by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

In Syria, the “Beatles” gained a reputation as the cruellest of all ISIS guards, using electric shocks, waterboarding, and mock executions – including a staged crucifixion – to terrorise their hostages. They beheaded seven British, American, and Japanese hostages, including the British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning, and 18 members of the Syrian army.” Jane Bradley, Buzz Feed

According to Jane Bradley of Buzz Feed, an accomplice of “Jihadi John”, the British “ISIS™” character who made all those fake beheading videos, has been identified as yet another British citizen. This one is a carney, 27-year-old El Shafee Elsheikh. According to the official story, he went to Syria to join “ISIS™” in 2012… a full two years before “ISIS™” was born.

Neocon Michael Rubin (pen name Peter Korzun?) Openly Calls for Military Coup in Turkey

by Scott Creighton

All those so-called “alternative” journalists out there who have been steadily regurgitating the anti-Erdogan rhetoric of this latest neoliberal regime change operation in the Middle East (and I am talking to you Lizzie Phelan and Steve Lendman) should take note: this is what you are supporting.

Yesterday Peter Korzun of the Strategic Culture Foundation posted an article in which he clearly calls for the military of Turkey to stage a coup in order to take control away from the elected government of the country and specifically, Recep Erdogan, because he is a “sultan”

In order to make his point on a so-called “progressive” “anti-war” and “anti-imperialism” website, Korzun chooses some rather suspect “experts” to help him make his case:

Michael Rubin, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a former Pentagon officialpredicts an imminent military coup in Turkey. According to the expert, «Turks – and the Turkish military – increasingly recognize that Erdogan is taking Turkey to the precipice». Rubin believes that «he [Erdogan] has taken Turkey down a path in which there is no chance of victory and a high chance of de facto partition». According to him, «If the Turkish military moves to oust Erdogan and place his inner circle behind bars, could they get away with it? In the realm of analysis rather than advocacy, the answer is yes». Rubin writes, it is doubtful that the Obama administration would do more than castigate any coup leaders, especially if they immediately laid out a clear path to the restoration of democracy. Neither Turkey nor Greece lost their NATO membership after coups.

The Turkish military has long seen itself as the «guardian of Turkish democracy», which it defines as the staunchly secular state created by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the modern Turkish republic..” Peter Korzun

Yes, that is the same neocon Michael Rubin of the Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld days being quoted as a source by the “anti-imperialist” Peter Korzun in his article calling for an undemocratic military coup in Turkey.

Between 2004 and 2009, he was editor of the Middle East Quarterly. He has received fellowships from the Council on Foreign Relations,[3] and the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.

Rubin has lectured in history at Yale University, Hebrew University, Johns Hopkins University, and worked as visiting lecturer at Universities of Sulaymaniyah, Salahuddin, and Duhok, in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Between 2002 and 2004, Rubin worked as a country director for Iran and Iraq in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, from which he was seconded to the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq.[4]

And yes, a military coup in Turkey to get rid of the elected government and Recep Erdogan is exactly what Peter Korzun is calling for.

Obama’s Next Neoliberal Regime Change: Venezuela president declares emergency, cites U.S., domestic ‘threats’

from Reuters

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro declared a 60-day state of emergency on Friday due to what he called plots from within the OPEC country and the United States to topple his leftist government.

Maduro did not provide details of the measure. A previous state of emergency, implemented in states near the Colombian border last year, suspended constitutional guarantees in those areas, except for guarantees relating to human rights.

Earlier on Friday, U.S. intelligence officials told reporters they were increasingly worried about the potential for an economic and political meltdown in Venezuela and predicted Maduro was not likely to complete his term.

Venezuela’s opposition is seeking to recall the unpopular leader, 53, amid a worsening crisis that includes food and medicine shortages, frequent power cuts, sporadic looting and galloping inflation.

But the former union leader and bus driver has vowed to stick out his term, and accuses the United States of fomenting an undercover coup against him. He pointed to this week’s impeachment of fellow leftist Dilma Rousseff in Brazil as a sign that he is next.

“Washington is activating measures at the request of Venezuela’s fascist right, who are emboldened by the coup in Brazil,” Maduro said during a Friday night broadcast on state television.

Chaos and Depravity: Kerry Demands Syria Surrender to al-Qaeda and the Kurds

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: There is a video from 2013 showing our “moderates” in Syria executing a dozen or so Syrian soldiers in Aleppo who were there protecting a hospital from these monsters. This is a real execution video, not the fake kind they made for ‘ISIS” so it is EXTREMELY graphic. This is what our government supports in Syria.

UPDATE: In an interview, Seymour Hersh (quoted later in this article) says Syria is winning the war against the “moderate” terrorists of the U.S. and there is “no chance” of Assad stepping down. This puts Kerry’s ultimatum into perspective.

UPDATE: Assad explained yesterday how the U.S. has been and is still supporting terrorism in Syria. Iran promised to remain by Syria’s side as they combat our irregular warfare campaign.

“AlNusra Front, or Jabhat alNusra sometimes called al-Qaeda in Syria or al-Qaeda in the Levant, is a Sunni Islamist militia fighting against Syrian Government”

Sec. of State John Kerry recently demanded Basar al-Assad surrender the whole of Syria to the CIA’s “moderate” terrorists by Aug. 1st of this year “or else”. Primary “opposition” in the regime change operation is al-Nusra, an al-Qaeda off-shoot in Syria.

Writing for the AP, Bradley Klapper explained:

Secretary of State John Kerry warned Syria’s government and its backers in Moscow and Tehran on Tuesday that they face an August deadline for starting a political transition to move President Bashar Assad out, or they risk the consequences of a new U.S. approach toward ending the 5-year-old civil war (war of aggression).” Klapper

The Sec. of State made it clear, regime change is the desired outcome of the U.S. and they will settle for nothing less.

“The target date for the transition is 1st of August. So we’re now coming up to May. So either something happens in these next few months, or they are asking for a very different track.”

If Assad does not adhere to this, there will clearly be repercussions. One of them may be the total destruction of the cease-fire and then go back to war. I don’t think Russia wants that. I don’t think Assad is going to benefit from that. There may be even other repercussions being discussed. That is for the future.”

If Assad’s strategy is to somehow think he’s going to just carve out Aleppo and carve out a section of the country, I got news for you and for him: This war doesn’t end,”

As long as Assad is there, the opposition is not going to stop fighting,” John Kerry, Sec. of State for the Obama administration

How can Kerry be so sure the “opposition” wont accept a deal with Assad? How can he be sure al-Qaeda in the Levant wont cut a deal? Well that is quite simple: Kerry commands the opposition. He pays them. He trains them. He practically owns them, or at least, his friends in Saudi Arabia own them.

This new statement by John Kerry didn’t get much press coverage mainly because it proves that our interests in the country have always been about regime change and nothing else. It also infers our connections with al-Nusra or al-Qaeda in Syria.

His threat to expand the war (and with it the civilian casualty body-count) if there is no compliance with his demands, is something straight from the Dick Cheney playbook. Or the Hillary Clinton playbook from Libya.

Kerry then couched his demands by blaming Assad for a series of various terrorist activities, each and every one caused by the “moderate” terrorists he himself sent into Syria.

16 civilians killed, 68 wounded in terrorist attacks on Aleppo neighborhoods and a hospital

from SANA

UPDATE: The “liberal” Huffington Post covers this offensive in Western Aleppo without once mentioning how the “moderate” terrorists killed a single civilian.

16 civilians were killed on Tuesday and 68 were injured according to the most recent toll due to terrorist attacks with rocket shells on residential neighborhoods and a hospital in Aleppo City, SANA’s correspondent reported.

Earlier, a source at Aleppo Police Command told SANA reporter that terrorists fired 65 rocket shells on the neighborhoods of al-Neel Street, al-Siryian, al-Khalidyia, al-Mocambo, al-Sabeel and the surroundings of al-Rahman mosque leaving 11 civilians killed and 37 injured.

Dr Nabil Antaki, a Doctor in Aleppo, Condemns Corporate Media for Lies and Censorship

by Dr Nabil Antaki, from Hwaairfan’s Blog

“With regards to recent events in Aleppo, I state very clearly that the mainstream media are lying by omission. Since the beginning of the war in Aleppo that began 4 years ago, they have consistently failed to report all the facts.

All of us here in Aleppo are disgusted by their lack of impartiality and objectivity. They only ever talk about the loss of life in the east of Aleppo which is entirely controlled by Al Nusra, a terrorist group affiliated with Al Qaeda. These are their “moderate rebels” a title that affords them an unmerited degree of respectability.

This same media remains silent on the daily losses and suffering endured in the Western areas of Aleppo living under the rain of mortar fire from these terrorist factions.  This media never mentions the terrorist blockade upon our people or the electricity cuts and water shortages inflicted upon us by their “moderate rebels”

True Believer: The Story of Toby Lopez, the Forrest Gump Who Shook the World of Deep State Politics

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: After communicating with him briefly, Toby has posted some more Tweets about his case. They are included at the end of the article. They should make his motivation a little clearer.

If you take his Tweets at face value, Toby Lopez was a true believer. He believed every bullshit propaganda story they put before him. He believed the fake “ISIS™” beheading videos. He believed Mike Brown deserved to get shot from behind while running away. He believed in the rightness of Joe Biden’s justification to send troops back into Iraq after we had finally got them out of there. He believed it all.

And in the end, he believed he was negotiating with a big-time “ISIS™” leader whom he made contact with on Twitter (of all things) and that he, a car salesman from Wyoming, Del, was capable of playing a staring role in securing the release of an American hostage, if only the Feds would believe him.

Quite by accident, Mr. Lopez exposed a couple rather interesting truths about the propaganda campaign known as “ISIS™” and even threatened to inadvertently reveal all of it, but he was too much of a believer to understand what he had stumbled upon.

In many ways, Toby Lopez turned out to be a modern day Forrest Gump. He had it all right there in front of him but he couldn’t see the forest for the trees.

In the end, authorities considered him a loose cannon armed with a deadly truth he was unfortunately too naive to understand himself. But his threats to go public with it all made him a problem that had to be solved.

So on Feb. 11th, 2015, Toby Lopez was arrested at his mother’s home where he lived and spent the next 14 months being shuttled from one federal institution to another until he was finally released late last month.

After all that, judging from his latest Tweets since his release, Toby still doesn’t get it. Not entirely.

But his story is fascinating for those of us who do. Sure, he was an accidental tourist tinkering in the clockwork of the biggest propaganda campaign of the time but he came closer to exposing the US Special Operations irregular warfare “hearts and minds” project that is Kurd “ISIS™” than any of us independent journalists out here, even if no one else noticed other than the Feds who whisked him away and locked him up for 14 months in order to get him to shut up before he dumped a real turd in the punch-bowl.

Though this is his story, it’s also a cautionary tale for all of us about meddling in affairs way above your pay-grade.
