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.

#JusticeForKurds – RT Goes All Out as Social Media Propagandists for New “Freedom Fighters” in Turkey, the Kurds

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: The Kurds just admitted they killed Turkish civilians in a destabilization terrorist attack last week, and RT want’s us to investigate Erdogan? Really?

Of course, this has NOTHING to do with the fact that the Turkish government has flat-out refused to allow the US, NATO and Israel to break off a piece of Turkey to give to the Greater Kurdistan project and they, along with the legitimate government of Syria, have refuse to recognize “Syrian Kurdistan”. Yeah, it has NOTHING to do with that, I’m sure.

—-

I think we have already pretty well established the fact that the new big plan for the empire is the building of a new nation called Greater Kurdistan out of parts of Iraq, Turkey and Syria.

They are holding a “building Greater Kurdistan” conference right now and Syrian Kurds, along with a number of various “moderate” terrorist groups from parts unknown, have decided to announce they are forming Syrian Kurdistan, without anyone’s permission of course, busting themselves off a piece of someone else’s country.

Looks like the Turkey phase of the project is now moving to the front burner complete with all the usual support from the Mockingbird press. This time the manufacturing of consent for the anti-war crowd is coming from RT of all places.

Syrian Kurds Declare Autonomous Northern Region

(Any more questions?)

from People’s Voice

oh lookie there. could that be Greater Kurdistan taking shape?

Syria’s Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) officials meeting with Arabs and other northern Syria ethnic groups in Rmeilan, in Syria’s northeastern Hasakeh province, agreed on establishing area autonomy, short of declaring independence – acting perhaps with tacit US support.

Turkey remains adamantly opposed, a foreign ministry statement saying acting unilaterally has no validity.

Syrian UN envoy/head of its Geneva III delegation, Bashar al-Jaafari, said his government intends preserving the nation’s sovereign independence and territorial integrity.

“(B)etting on creating any kind of divisions among the Syrians will be a total failure,” he stressed. Separately, he ruled out meeting with chief opposition negotiator Mohammad Alloush – calling him a “terrorist” involved in bombing embassies and killing civilians…

Wednesday’s announcement comes on day three of Geneva III peace talks, Kurds excluded from participating, Lavrov calling them left out a “demonstration of weakness,” an obstacle to conflict resolution

Syria Kurds (Not!) Say They’ll Declare A Federal Region in Syria

from Penny for Your Thoughts

A powerful Syrian Kurdish political party is planning to declare a federal region in northern Syria, a model it hopes can be applied to the entire country, a spokesman for the faction said Wednesday.

Nawaf Khalil of the Democratic Union Party told The Associated Press that his party is not lobbying for an only-Kurdish region but an all-inclusive area that would include representation for Turkmen, Arabs and Kurds in northern Syria.

The declaration is expected to be made at the end of a Kurdish conference that is being held Wednesday in the town of Rmeilan in the country’s northern Hassakeh province.A federal region could be a first step toward creating an autonomous region similar to the one Kurds run across the border in Iraq, where their territory is virtually a separate country.

It could also usher in similar demands for federal regions elsewhere in Syria and in effect lead to a partition of the war-shattered country.

However, both the Syrian government and the opposition, at least in theory, reject any form of partitioning of the country.
“As a Syrian citizen, I say we reject talks about a federal Syria … our people will reject any attempt to divide Syria,” Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem said at a weekend press conference in Damascus.

A separatist region in Syria was ANNEXED, by the US and NATO, to destroy Syria as we have all known it! As I’ve stated all along. The PKK is a terrorist organization. YPG is their affilliate and is full of  Kurdish and friend terrorists. The plan was to balkanize or federalize, as the compromise, Syria. This will, as has been stated here, embolden the PKK, as it has been, to tear Turkey apart. And they are.

(After Russian withdrawal) UN special envoy believes in good outcome of inter-Syrian talks (for regime change opposition)

from Tass News Agency

UN Special Envoy on Syria Staffan de Mistura has said he is optimistic about the outcome of the resumed inter-Syrian talks in Geneva.

The migrant crisis, Russia’s actions and the Islamic State (a terrorist organization banned in Russia) have created an impetus for the talks, de Mistura said after meeting a delegation of the Syrian opposition represented by the Riyadh-formed High Negotiations Committee (HNC)…

He also repeated what he had said earlier on Tuesday regarding President Putin’s decision to withdraw the Russian Aerospace Forces from Syria. The UN special envoy hopes the decision will produce a positive impact on the Geneva talks aimed at reaching a political settlement in Syria and at peaceful political transition in that country.

Putin’s Withdrawal in Syria Weakens Hand of Government’s Negotiators: Threatens “even worse war than we have so far”

by Scott Creighton

How’s this for interesting?

Russian president, Vladamir Putin, has decided to pull his forces out of Syria this week while a number of interesting things have been taking place:

  1. New round of Syrian peace talks began yesterday
  2. Another terrorist bombing in Turkey by the Kurds
  3. U.S. House of Representatives call “ISIS™” actions in Syria and Iraq “genocide”
  4. U.S. backed “rebels” lob mortars at a news crew
  5. The Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government has declared Turkey’s operations against the PKK and other Kurdish terrorists to be “genocide”

“I think that the task that was assigned to the Ministry of Defense and the armed forces as a whole has achieved its goal, and so I order the defense minister to start tomorrow withdrawing the main part of our military factions from the Syrian Arab Republic,” President Putin said

1. “Damascus warned that any discussion about removing Mr Assad would be a “red line”. US Secretary of State John Kerry and French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault condemned the comment from Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem as divisive and provocative.” Straits Times

2. “The March 13 terrorist attack in Ankara openly questions which path the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) will now take. On the one hand the PKK has created an image of civil war in the southeast with its attempt to impose “autonomy” through trenches and barricades; on the other hand it has now terrorized the west of the country with suicide bombers.” Hurriyet

3. “The resolution was voted on ahead of a congressionally mandated March 17 deadline for Secretary of State John Kerry and the White House to make a decision on whether to make such a declaration. The measure is an effort to force the administration’s hand on the issue, as the administration has so far declined to take an official position.” Fox News

4. “We were in the streets of Daraa city talking to local people five years since the war began, and our work there was cut short when a mortar was fired from opposition territory, landing on a building very close to us,” journalist Lizzie Phelan told RT by phone shortly after the incident.

The crew had to cut short the interview and leave the area.” RT

5. “Forty-five members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) were killed in Turkish Air Force airstrikes in northern Iraq on Monday, the Turkish General Staff said in a statement on Tuesday.” Sputnik

It is also reported by SANA that more journalists were targeted by “ISIS™” a few days later near al-Shaddadi.

According to the Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, “There has been a significant turning point in the fight against terrorism,”

Does this seem like there has been a significant turning point reached in the fight against terrorism to you?

So what happened here?

It looks to me like the “Great Hero” of the anti-globalization movement, Vladamir Putin, has cut a regime change deal with ObamaGod of the Peace Prize and he is now siding with them against the people of Syria. I’m not sure there is any other way to see this move at this time.

Steve Lendman Pushes More Gulenist Regime Change Propaganda About Turkey

UPDATE: Oh look. The brave “freedom fighters” in Syria are women… and KURDS… says Huffington Post (target demographic? what do you think?)

UPDATE: Just a reminder:ISIS™ Oil Continues to Flow to Israel While Turkish Stream Pipeline Deal Appears Dead

I’m starting to hate Steve Lendman.

Graham Fuller (foreground) and Turkish Muslim guru Fetullah Gülen who has dark ties to CIA and fanatical Jihadist groups worldwide.

Today Steve is screeching about Turkey shutting down more “free speech” because they targeted 3 CIA-linked publications, all owned by the same Gulenist corporation, for trying to destabilize the freely elected political party that is in power right now.

“Press freedom in Turkey is pure fantasy. Media operations critical of state policies risk regime takeover.

Independent journalists reporting information authorities want suppressed risk arrest, prosecution, imprisonment or assassination.

Last Friday’s takeover of Zaman and its English language Today’s Zaman edition was a serious blow to press freedom. World community and Western media reaction was deplorably mute.

Scant coverage followed Erdogan’s latest outrage. The New York Times and Wall Street Journal ignored his takeover of independent Cihan news agency

Istanbul-based Cihan was Turkey’s only independent news agency, part of Feza Publications, owner of Zaman until regime takeover.” Steve Lendman

Only a fool or a liar would classify Zaman, Today’s Zaman and Cihan News Agency as “independent” media outlets.
