CNN-Linked “News” Agency Releases Video of Kurdish Lawyer Tahir Elci Shooting – Spawns Some Staged Anti-Government Protests

by Scott Creighton

The rush to create Greater Kurdistan is in full swing. And as usual, at the center of the media manipulation drive we find CNN.

Today, a new video is out purporting to show a shootout between some gunmen and plain clothed security members who were there to provide protection for Kurdish lawyer, Tahir Elci. The scene took place at a press conference staged by Elci and was filmed by something called the Dogan News Agency.

In footage from the Dogan News Agency, gunshots are heard, and plainclothes police officers respond with gunfire. Elci and journalists stand behind police.” CNN

According to the official CNN report, Elci was shot during the confrontation, but it was not captured on camera. Instead what we have is a blurry picture of a body lying on the ground.


So the press conference was called by Elci himself and appears to have been set up to take place outside in the street. And as it just so happens, someone decided to attack them, with the cameras rolling, right out in the middle of the street… and the “heroic” pro-Kurdish lawyer is killed, off camera, making him a martyr for the cause.

ISIS™ Oil Continues to Flow to Israel While Turkish Stream Pipeline Deal Appears Dead

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Erdogan issues an apology… sort of… “We are truly saddened by this incident.”. This, after Putin explained why he hasn’t returned Erdogan’s calls “we have seen that the Turkish side hasn’t been ready to offer an elementary apology over the plane incident.


We now have several sources confirming (H/T AlanB) the earlier Financial Times report that showed over the past few months, Israel has purchased as much as 3/4 of it’s oil supplies from Iraqi Kurdistan, which is the central distributor of that stolen oil from Syria provided to them via all those tanker truck convoys run by what the US calls ISIS™.

Israel has bought as much as three-quarters of its oil from Iraqi Kurdistan in recent months, the Financial Times reported Sunday.

According to the report, which cited shipping data, trading sources and satellite tanker tracking, Israeli refineries and oil firms have imported more than 19 million barrels of Kurdish oil over the course of three months, from the beginning of May to August 11. Haaretz

In a carefully detailed article, Al-Araby lays out the entire process from start to finish, showing how ISIS™ supposedly steals the oil from Conoco oil fields in Syria and then transports them down to Iraqi Kurdistan where the oil is purchased illegally and refined to some small degree so they can get around import regulations in Turkey. The oil is put in tanker trucks labeled as legitimate oil from the Iraqi Kurdistan region and sold to black market buyers in Turkey. The article explains how one of the biggest buyers of that stolen oil just happens to be an Israeli-Greek duel citizen named Uncle Farid.

IS sells Iraqi and Syrian oil for a very low price to Kurdish and Turkish smuggling networks and mafias, who label it and sell it on as barrels from the Kurdistan Regional Government.

It is then most frequently transported from Turkey to Israel, via knowing or unknowing middlemen, according to al-Araby‘s investigation…

Al-Araby has obtained information about how IS smuggles oil from a colonel in the Iraqi Intelligence Services who we are keeping anonymous for his security.

The information was verified by Kurdish security officials, employees at the Ibrahim Khalil border crossing between Turkey and Iraqi Kurdistan, and an official at one of three oil companies that deal in IS-smuggled oil.

The Iraqi colonel, who along with US investigators is working on a way to stop terrorist finance streams, told al-Araby about the stages that the smuggled oil goes through from the points of extraction in Iraqi oil fields to its destination – notably including the port of Ashdod, Israel. …

Once in Turkey, the lorries continue to the town of Silopi, where the oil is delivered to a person who goes by the aliases of Dr Farid, Hajji Farid and Uncle Farid.

Uncle Farid is an Israeli-Greek dual national in his fifties. Al-Araby

If the Kurds are really in Syria and Iraq fighting ISIS™, why are they allowing the flow of this stolen oil to cross areas they control to be processed and sold in tankers bearing the seal of Iraqi Kurdistan?

For that matter, why are the fanatical Muslims selling their stolen oil to the Jewish state at such low, low prices?

My Answers to a 10 Question Pop-Quiz on Erdogan

by Scott Creighton

A reader has decided to put together a 10 question pop-quiz for me regarding just how guilty is Erdogan and I figured I would take the time to answer him but while I did it, I would also publish it as an article this morning.

Seems like an awful lot of trolls are sharing my website address with one another. I guess the demonetization of Erdogan is a profitable agenda to the astroturfing influence peddlers out there.

Not that the person asking the questions is one of them. There just seems to be a whole shit-load of them showing up for this particular topic.

You can read his questions here. Below the break, I reposted my answers to him.

Davutoğlu Reportedly Claims He Gave Order to Shoot Down Russian Jet While Globalist Favorite Babacan Left Out of New Government

by Scott Creighton

It’s yet to be confirmed and I have only found one source for this story, but Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu says he gave the order to shoot down the Russian jet a few days ago. The Russian pilot has finally spoken out about the ordeal saying they were given no warning by the Turkish jet and said they were not in Turkish airspace when it happened.

That would mean it had nothing to do with the current bad-boy de jour, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. After all, it’s the Prime Minister of Turkey who serves as the Commander in Chief of the armed forces. Not the president.

Russian Pilot Says Turkey Did Not Issue Any Warnings

from the AP

A Russian airman who has survived the downing of his warplane says Turkish jets did not issue any warnings. Capt. Konstantin Murakhtin said Wednesday on Russian television that his plane was flying over Syrian territory and didn’t violate Turkish airspace.

Muravkin was rescued early Wednesday by Russian and Syrian commando and was speaking in televised comments from the Russian Hemeimeem air base in Syria.
