Military Coup in Turkey: Post Mortem

by Scott Creighton

Last night on CNN, former CIA spook Robert Baer was despondent, irreconcilably inconsolable. He was talking to a CNN “journalist” about the coup attempt in Turkey which at that point was looking like it was quickly becoming a failed coup attempt.

Baer laid out a list of what he said were mistakes by the coup leaders and stressed that he himself had taken part in many CIA-backed coups over the course of his career so he was speaking from experience. “Baer would have done it better” was the point of the discussion as he mourned the missed opportunity for undemocratic regime change by violence in Turkey.

The normalization of the CIA’s policy of brutality was chilling. But Baer does have a point. He is experienced.

On MSNBC Rachel Maddow, the fake-left sycophantic Clinton cheerleader, it took them less than 5 minutes after Erdogan regained control of the country for them to start demonizing him again. Millions of Turks were out on the streets, had risked their lives and their freedom to thwart the unconstitutional coup and the first thing Maddow and company could do was start talking about their elected leader being a “power-mad dictator” locking up journalists and arresting opposition leaders.

Maddow’s guest, I forget which “foreign policy expert” it was, said looking at the airport where a hundred thousand citizens greeted Erdogan’s plane, that he was some kind of “populist… like Huey Long”

He spit the name out like he expected it to be censored like the “F” bomb or the “N” word. Maddow shuddered.

Oh God. Imagine a leftist who stands up for his constituency. The madness!

This morning CNN is covering Trump’s VP pick. Fox News is covering the Republican convention. And MSNBC is showing a rerun of an older Rachel Maddow show.

The coup attempt failed and the Mockingbird press wants us to simply “move along”

So it’s up to me to give you guys a wrap-up of last night’s events.

Military Coup in Turkey: Some Photos and Videos of Civilians Blocking Tanks, Pouring into the Streets

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Unconfirmed at this point:

UPDATE: Coup leaders say they will write a brand new constitution for Turkey once they take democracy by gunpoint. The new constitution is a favorite of the IMF/World Bank masters of the universe when they take over a country. Always got to have that new constitution.

UPDATE: Holy shit, people are pouring into the streets demanding their country back despite the warnings from the fascists who staged the coup in Turkey. (I updated this post before I finished writing it. That’s how fast this story is moving)

Social media has been blocked. The state radio and television stations have been invaded by armed soldiers. There is a curfew in place, decreed by the coup leaders. Shot have been fired in several cities. Turkish citizens are photographed on their knees in the streets with their hands cuffed behind them. Airports are shut down to keep Erdogan from returning to the country. Fighter jets are screeching over head in major cities.

This is the Gulenist’s version of “returning democracy” to Turkey. Sounds kind of like the “democracy” we saw installed in Honduras and Thailand recently. This is what democracy looks like to these people. It’s the same democracy they have installed time and time again across the globe.

The “ISIS™” Operandi: What is Happening in Libya? Part 1

by Scott Creighton

First we review the Modus operandi, or the “method of operations” of President Peace Prize and NATO

When the people got tired of our puppet dictator in Yemen, Ali Abdullah Saleh, a legitimate people’s revolution removed him from power and in his place they allowed a phony, one candidate “election” to take place in 2012 (orchestrated by Hillary Clinton’s State Department) and they got another puppet of the West, Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

Once it was clear he was no different that the previous dictator, in Sept of last year, the Houthis from the west rose up and took control of the nation, evicting our puppet ruler and effectively taking control of the country.

The current government of Yemen is deemed “illegitimate” by Western/NATO interests while they fully back the current neo-Nazi, fascist government in Ukraine which came to power via a US-backed bloody color revolution last year as well.

These same Western interests also support the illegitimate junta currently ruling Thailand which also came to power in a US backed coup in 2014.

West tries to use extremism for color revolutions in Russia — Federation Council speaker

from TASS News

The West uses political, ethnic and religious extremism as a geopolitical instrument, including for trying to organize “color revolutions” in Russia, Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said on Wednesday.

“Extremism is used as a geopolitical instrument, for reshaping the spheres of influence, overthrowing regimes undesirable for some countries by the means of organizing ‘color revolutions’,” Matviyenko said. “The West makes attempts to organize them [‘color revolutions’] in Russia as well,” she added. These efforts are directed at “discrediting the authorities and destabilizing the situation in Russia, and using both extremist elements and opposition for that,” the speaker noted.

“The Russian government does not plan to embark on a course of ‘tightening screws’ and suppressing ‘dissent’,” Matviyenko stressed. “The authorities are ready for dialogue with the opposition, they will continue to develop partnership with the civil society. Such dialogue and such partnership are important,” she said. However, “it is useless to start discussions with those who works on orders from abroad, in the interests of a foreign country or foreign countries,” Matviyenko added.

“Cartalucci” is at it Again: Praising the Despotic Junta in Thailand and Blaming the Left for the Recent Gladio Op

by Scott Creighton (H/T tommyknocker1)

“Thaksin’s regime is going. It is a cancer, you can choose to pray and wave the banner of democracy like children, we’ll choose to cut it out.” Tony Cartalucci

” the empty dream of international democracy” “Tony Cartalucci”

“the circus that is modern “democracy.” ” “Tony Cartalucci”

In Thailand, the illegal junta that came to power last May is doing everything they can to make sure they remain in power in perpetuity.

To that end,  the junta, officially called the “National Council for Peace and Order”, seek to impeach the former elected Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, who has already been removed from office.

Impeachment will mean she can’t run for office for 5 years which will effectively ban the most popular political party from participation in the next round of “elections” which the junta claims wont take place til 2016 or so.

The people of Thailand understand that ploy and are understandably upset by it. So, with the expectation of large protests on the horizon, protests that have been made illegal under the rule of the current despots, the Thai junta announced recently that they would be cracking down on all of them and banning media coverage of any events that unfold.

To justify those actions, it appears the military thugs have staged a couple “terrorist” acts which will provide ample pretext for the coming repression of the political majority that has won every election in Thailand since 2001. So don’t be caught blogging any pertinent questions regarding who committed these acts of terrorism. Doing so will get you brought before Big Brother, General Prayuth Chan-ocha, head of the Thai military junta, for some “reeducation”

As he (they) have done in the past, “Tony Cartalucci” is busy white-washing the actions of the illegal junta and blaming the leftist for the Operation Gladio styled acts which have recently took place. As usual when it comes to military juntas across the globe, “Tony’s” evidence is spurious at best and doesn’t hold up to the slightest investigation.
