Terror attacks not independent from incidents in our region: President Erdoğan

(Destabilization subcontractors? Who does that sound like?)

from Hurriyet Daily

Attacks perpetrated by terrorist organizations in Turkey are not independent from incidents happening in the region, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said after a gun attack at a nightclub in Istanbul on Jan. 1.

In a written statement, Erdoğan vowed that Turkey was “determined to do whatever is necessary in the region to maintain the security and peace of Turkish citizens.”

“We are aware that these attacks carried out by different terrorist organizations targeting our citizens are not independent from incidents happening in our region. We are determined to destroy the attacks and threats against our country from its root,” he said.

Those who are targeting Turkey’s peace and their subcontractors are aiming to destabilize our country, demoralize our people and create chaos,” he added.

Obama’s Russian Sanctions Have Nothing to Do With Hacking: It’s About Syria, Not the FBI’s “Grizzly Lie” Report

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Putin refuses to retaliate against Obama’s bullshit instigation attempt.

Obama’s “Grizzly Lie” report is indeed a grizzly step toward total war across the Middle East and perhaps the entire world.

Since Russia and Syria were finally able to oust Obama’s “moderate” terrorists from Aleppo and liberate the city from it’s 5-year-long regime change siege, the Russian ambassador to Turkey has been murdered in cold blood, a Russian plane on route to Syria has mysteriously crashed into the Black Sea and now… President Peace Prize has evicted 35 Russian diplomats from U.S. soil and imposed some meaningless sanctions on a number of other Russian agencies and individuals. The claims are that we had nothing to do with the first two incidents and Obama’s actions against Russia are as “retaliation” against their supposed efforts at influencing our elections here in the states.

Of course, our intelligence agencies can’t very well take credit for killing ambassadors anymore than they can admit downing planes (Flight MH17 comes to mind). Wars have started for less and CIA Directors have been fired for meddling like this in the past (Bay of Pigs?). Not very often, but it has been done.

By the same token, President Obama can’t be seen as punishing Russia for driving al-Qaeda from eastern Aleppo. There’s that whole “providing aid and comfort” law to think about.

But the truth is there if you read a little between the lines… or if you just bother to actually read the lines instead of just listening to the lying talking heads giving their spin jobs on the MSM.

Mr. Obama said, and added that the United States acted after “repeated private and public warnings that we have issued to the Russian government, and are a necessary and appropriate response to efforts to harm U.S. interests in violation of established international norms of behavior.” New York Times

The expulsion of the 35 RussiansIt was unclear if they were involved in the hacking.”

closing of two waterfront estatesofficials declined to say whether they were specifically used in the election-related hacks.” New York Times

If they say it’s “unclear” if those expelled from the U.S. were involved in the hacking, that’s spinspeak for “they were not involved in the hacking

There have been no warnings coming from the United States to Russia about staying out of our election process. The warnings President Obama is speaking of were regarding staying out of Syria and out of the way of our “national interests” over there.

Like the president, the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, avoided getting his message muddied up in spinspeak as well. He made it quite clear yesterday that the sanctions and expulsions had nothing to do with hacking and everything to do with Russia interfering with our “national interests” abroad.

Russia does not share America’s interests. In fact, it has consistently sought to undermine them, sowing dangerous instability around the world. While today’s action by the administration is overdue, it is an appropriate way to end eight years of failed policy with Russia” Mediaite

Off the top of my head I imagine Ryan was speaking about Syria, Ukraine and BRICS but there could be other examples.

In Syria, Russia helped stop our regime change operation that intended to bring along with it the Qatar-Turkey pipeline and the creation of the western quarter of Greater Kurdistan.

In Ukraine our regime change operation took place immediately after the Ukrainian people decided they wanted no part of the European Union and the new IMF loans that came along with the deal.

And in regards to the BRICS nations… well, that speaks for itself.

And there are the interests of our neoliberal and Likudnik friends in London and Tel Aviv to think about as well.

These are the “national interests” Paul Ryan and President Obama speak of. They wont specify what they are because Americans are not likely to want to charge into global war over oil and banking hegemony since it’s their loved ones who will be fighting it, not Ryan’s or Obama’s. In fact, Sec. Kerry just lamented recently that it’s a “problem” that Americans are getting tired of sending their kids off to fight and die in these wars. You think I’m kidding?

And a lot of Americans don’t believe we should be fighting and sending young Americans over to die in another country. That’s the problem.” Sec. of State John Kerry

That’s the problem. We’re tired of sending our children to fight and die in other countries for the lies of corrupt people and the profits of our “national interests”. That, according to the Secretary of State in the Obama regime, is “the problem”.

Gee. I guess they need more motivation, huh? Lucky Larry been buying anymore buildings recently?

Understanding this Weekend’s Kurdish Terror Attacks in Turkey and the Wave of New McCarthyism

by Scott Creighton

The greatest threat to the well-being of the United States and the rest of humanity is the out of control and desperate post 9/11 “Capitalism’s Invisible Army” (CIA) armed with their proxy mercenary armies (Kurds and Kurd”ISIS”), “moderate” terrorists (Free Syrian Army), al-Qaeda off-shoots (al-Nusra) and seemingly endless piles of unregulated cash (thanks to congress and all that heroin we are cultivating over in Afghanistan).

Contrary to popular belief, the Greater Kurdistan project is not dead on arrival. The recent defeat of Hillary Clinton (and her minions of global instability) in the recent U.S. presidential election caused ripples of concern throughout the ranks of the CIA’s “moderate” terrorist cottage industry in the Middle East. However, these animals didn’t’ crawl away to lick their wounds. Instead, like wounded predators, they are pressing forward in a fevered pitch to rundown and feast on their prey before they become to weak to accomplish their task.

What’s happening in Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Iran is quite simple. One graphic makes it all very clear.

Qatar, our closest ally in the Middle East and financial backer of many of the “moderate” terrorists looking to force a regime change in Syria (interesting: Trump’s latest Sec. of State contender, Exxon CEO, has a vested interest in the Qatar LNG pipeline question as Exxon is the leading foreign investment partner to Qatar’s state-own LNG industry) along with Saudi Arabia have a very serious reason for wanting Assad to go and a more friendly regime to be installed in Turkey: total global hegemony in the future LNG market.

Exposed: Deep State Ties to the Failed Turkish Coup

(President Erdogan is still being routinely demonized as the “creator”, “protector” and “state sponsor” of “ISIS” as well as a supposed full fledged partner in crime with the US/NATO war of aggression in Syria in both the MSM and unfortunately the so-called “alternative” media as well. Several things prove this is not the case. Many have even tried to make the claim that the failed coup in Turkey was a false flag event he himself staged in order to justify more authoritarian crackdowns in the country he supposedly rules with an iron fist. None of that is true. As I have pointed out many times, Erdogan began drifting away from the neoliberal West years ago when he first refused to take out another IMF loan and ever since then he has been targeted for either hard or soft regime change. His understanding of the Greater Kurdistan project and his opposition to it (because it requires a third of his country to make it work) cinched the deal. His own military leadership attempted to take him out on behalf of Western interests, just like the Morsi presidency in Egypt not that long ago. It was these same military leaders who have been allowing their border to be infiltrated by US/NATO “moderate” terrorists for all these years and these same CIA-backed generals who helped US interests stage the shoot-down of a Russian fighter jet this year. Erdogan has, after the failed coup, fired hundreds of generals linked to NATO and the CIA and has gone out of his way to reestablish mutually beneficial ties with Moscow. He is still very much opposed to the formation of Condi Rice’s “new Middle East” with Greater Kurdistan as it’s foundation. The following article sheds light on perhaps the most important and influential deep state program of the past ten years but it shouldn’t be telling anyone here anything new, only providing more insight and confirmation of what I and a few others (like Penny) have been reporting for quite sometime. What is interesting though is how Hillary Clinton was still receiving briefings from very influential assets of the deep state long after she left office.)

By Stephen A. Molling , Activist Post

Emails released by WikiLeaks describe recent activities of the American deep state. Of note is a statement by Henry Kissinger about President Erdogan six months before a failed coup against the Turkish leader:

Kissinger felt it was a “fantasy” to think Erdogan could become pro-Western, since he is very pro-Islamic.

The quote is from a leaked email entitled Turkey and ISIS (Defense Policy Board) sent to Hillary Clinton Advisor, Jake Sullivan, on January 17, 2016. The sixteen-point memo is intended to alert the Clinton campaign of the Defense Policy Board’s conclusion that President Erdogan is persona non grata.

Henry Kissinger is famous for the statement that “power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.” He has proven experience exercising that power while removing uncooperative heads of state.

After serving on the Defense Policy Board (DPB) for decades, 93-year-old Kissinger is the ranking elder of the council. He expressed the consensus of the group when he called the Turkish President anti-Western. For Erdogan it could have been the kiss of death.

MAJOR SHIFT in Erdogan’s Relations with Imperialist US… and the Barzani Clan (yes, you read that right): Did He Sell Out to Greater Kurdistan?

by Scott Creighton

I don’t know what to think of this so I am going to put this info out there for you guys to consider and maybe you can let me know what you think.

I started my morning off in the usual way, skimming the Times, al Jazeera, the Post, HuffPuff, Fox “News”, Daily Blow… you know, the usual crap just to get a feel for the daily dose of excrement they are shoveling our way today, when I came across a story that made me stop and do a double-take:

Erdogan Aiding Coalition Partners in Cross-border Attack on “ISIS™” in Syria

What? I thought “ah, that’s just the Times doing their propaganda thing” until, I saw it again:

Turkey and U.S.-backed forces take on Islamic State border town in Syria

So I thought “oh, OK. The Times and the Post feeding off each others’ BS” so I decided to take a look at some Turkish papers in order to get some clarification:

LIVE: Turkish military, coalition forces launch ‘Euphrates Shield’ operation in Jarablus

There it is again. Now it has a name “Operation Euphrates Shield” but I dismissed it YET AGAIN because, AH… Hurriyet Daily is a Dogan Media Group paper, a Gulenist rag, so I figured I would check out the Daily Sabah and get the REAL SCOOP:

Wednesday’s anti-Daesh operation, called Euphrates Shield, aims to support U.S.-led coalition forces, strengthen Turkey’s border security by clearing away terrorist groups and maintain Syria’s territorial integrity.” Daily Sabah

Are you fucking kidding me? Recep Erdogan just survived a damn coup orchestrated from the Pentagon and US State Department in conjunction with the monied interests behind Fethullah Gülen and just recently he started bombing the CIA’s new darling freedom fighters in Syria… and now he’s teaming up with TEAM USA WORLD POLICE to literally invade Syria to stop the CIA’s “ISIS™”? The same “ISIS™” the coalition let leave Manbij a couple weeks ago so they could head north to this city?

Is that a joke?

But wait.. it gets worse. Much, much worse.

One of coup plot leaders was Clinton donor: Report

from Hurriyet Daily

One of the suspected leaders of the July 15 failed coup attempt, for whom an arrest warrant has been issued, was at the center of a group of suspicious 2014 contributions to a super political action committee (PAC) supporting Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, according to an analysis by USA TODAY.

A company created by Adil Öksüz, who is believed to have ties to U.S.-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen, made a $5,000 donation to the Ready for Hillary PAC…

“A company called Harmony Enterprises gave $5,000 to the PAC on June 27, 2014, campaign finance records show. Öksüz registered Harmony in New Jersey in 2010, according to state corporate records. It is the only campaign donation the company had ever made,”…

“The company website suggests it is a paper manufacturing business, but the address listed on the corporate records is a used-car lot on a highway in Lodi, N.J…

The donation was reportedly one of a half-dozen donations made to Ready PAC that same day totaling more than $62,000 from Turkish Americans in and around Lodi…

Most of the donors reportedly have clear ties to the Gülen movement.

Rand Paul, Tim Kaine and Marco Rubio Are Gulenists: Call on State Department to Regime Change Turkey on Behalf of Greater Kurdistan in Letter

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: 8/2/2016 This article and more specifically, this image, is making it’s way across social media right now and I have done my best at the request of a reader to track it’s origin to it’s source. This is a difficult task post-coup. Anyone on the record for having been calling for a Gulenist regime change operation in our government prior to the failed Gulenist coup would certainly have their IT guys scrub the image from their servers and the web in general. That said, I can only find a handful of Feb. 18 postings of the image on websites by “notorious mike” who appears to have created the accounts for that posting only (unless he’s a regular who creates different accounts for each posting in order to remain more anonymous, which is possible). That said, I cannot independently confirm the legitimacy of this image. But I can confirm that it follows the foreign policy ideology of all those signed on the document. If anyone comes across a source of this image earlier than Feb. 18, 2016, please let us know. thank you.

If you go read this comment I left a reader you can see what I found about the history of the image itself.

In order to find out more, I sent a Tweet to the following to see if they would reply:

Paul and Udal do not appear to have Twitter accounts. I will craft an email and zap it out to all of them later.

So, there is no pro-Kurd/Gulenist regime change operation in Turkey huh? Tip of the Hat to Penny from Penny for your Thoughts for sticking with the regime change in Turkey story like she is.

How’s that for doublespeak? They want to bring “democracy” back to Turkey via an unconstitutional regime change operation to install their boy Gulen and at the same time use it to bring Turkey back into a position of subservience (“mutually beneficial cooperation”) via respect for the “rule of international law”

“We write to express our deep concern about the recent Turkey’s shelling of Kurdish-held areas in northern Syria..

..It is vitally important for the entire global community to prevent Turkish society from further religious radicalization. We believe the goal can be achieved by providing support to the movement of a reputable Turkish Muslim scholar Fethullah Gulen who stands for interfaith and intercultural dialogues as well as for abiding by the democratic principles in ruling the country. Mr. Gulen’s authority reinforced by the support of the world community will enable us to turn Turkey away from the radical Islam.

Besides, we strongly urge you to adjust the U.S. foreign policy towards Turkey and exert any available leverage to get the country back on the path of mutually beneficial cooperation based in the rules of international law.” Rand Paul, Tim Kaine and Marco Rubio

Translation:

“Use any means necessary to regime change Turkey and install a puppet in Fethullah Gulen who will stop hindering the Kurds as they steal as much of Syria as they can for Greater Kurdistan”

The Libertarians, the Clinton Dems and the establishment Republicans all working together to bring about more illegal, unconstitutional regime change operations in the Condi Rice’s “New Middle East”

They don’t call it the Washington Consensus for nothing folks.

All this coming at a time when Erdogan is bringing the military under more civilian control (been to long coming if you ask me) and clearing the country of it’s Gulenist stay behind forces. The Turkish military has been under CIA/Pentagon and NATO control for decades.

Recently Penny covered a U.S. general lamenting the fact that so many of our bought and paid for Turkish military leaders and coup planners were being arrested for treason in the country.

“U.S. Central Command Commander Gen. Joseph Votel said Thursday that a number of the U.S. military’s closest allies in the Turkish military have now been placed in jail following the coup attempt.”  WSJ

Apparently the failed coup, busted up by hundreds of thousands of civilians who took to the streets in order to regain their democracy, has cost our New Middle East operation dearly. That’s the price you pay when you fail at your undemocratic, illegal regime change operations.

What’s good though is it exposes your traitors. Apparently it also exposes globalist, neoliberal war-mongering assholes as well.

Here’s looking at you Rand Paul, Tim Kaine and Marco Rubio.

Thanks for the good work Penny.
