Israeli-American “Alternative” Journalist Explains How To “Crush Erdogan” – Hint: Use Kurds and Color Revolution

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Meanwhile, Israel has been caught providing medical treatment to 500 al Qaeda terrorists working to destabilize Syria at Ziv Medical Center.

Here you go. Here’s Joshua Tartakovsky over at CounterPunch explaining how to stop Erdogan’s expansionism by using the Kurds to stage a color revolution. Of all things Erdogan has been blamed for that the US and Israel are really the guilty parties, “expansionism” has to be hands down, the funniest.

The US, Iraqi Kurdistan and Israel profit from the oil stolen from the Syrain people… blame Erdogan.

The US, Iraqi Kurdistan and Israel support terrorist destabilizing Syria… blame Erdogan.

And now the US, Iraqi Kurdistan and Israel all have ambitions for taking a piece of Syria and so what does the Israeli-American journalist do over at Counterpunch? He blames Erdogan for even that.

Amazing.

Last Piece of Greater Kurdistan Taking Shape: Color Revolution in Turkey Begins

by Scott Creighton

While opposition politicians in Turkey now openly call for breaking off a piece of the country for the Kurds, the NGOs are busy getting the Kurds out onto the streets to disrupt the Turkish nation in hopes of creating the last piece of Greater Kurdistan while plans are set in place for breaking off parts of Iraq and Syria to hand over to the neoliberal and corrupt Barzani clan.

There are snipers, bodies and globalist NGOs behind all of it. Soon the corporate press and the so-called alternative ones like Mr. Lendman over there, will be calling for a humanitarian intervention in Turkey to save all those precious PKK Kurds from the evils of a dictator gone bad. Sound familiar? Anyone?

Bad Idea: Dividing Iraq and Syria Into Mini-States Will ‘Trigger New Wars’

(The grand plan for Greater Kurdistan is becoming increasingly obvious)

Sputnik International

Some Western military experts and strategists have suggested dividing the Middle East across sectarian lines to create Sunni, Shiite and Kurdish mini-states in Iraq and Syria. This strategy is certainly bold but it will only make things worse, James Cogan wrote for Information Clearing House.

“The fact that American and European strategists are contemplating redrawing borders, entrenching sectarian and ethnic conflicts and, most likely, triggering new wars, is testimony to the sheer criminality of imperialist policy in the Middle East,” he observed.

The case for dividing Iraq and Syria is based on an idea, which is dangerously appealing in its simplicity. Daesh is using ethnic and religious grievances in the Middle East to promote its own agenda. If the Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds are allowed to have their own nations, they (particularly the Sunnis) would supposedly be more than willing to launch a major offensive against the terrorist group and other rebel factions.

Venezuela’s Maduro Decrees 3-Year Job Protection for Workers

from Telesur

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro decreed a series of new laws Tuesday, including job protection for workers across the country through to 2018. The employment decree states that for three years a worker cannot be terminated without just cause.

Following the Dec. 6 legislative elections, leading members of the Democratic Unity Roundtable, or MUD coalition, signaled their intention to engage in mass layoffs once they take their posts on Jan. 5.

Among the other decrees approved by the Venezuelan leader include a law aimed at increasing the authority of grassroots decision making bodies created as part of the government’s efforts to delegate power more directly to Venezuelans.

A Crisis Worse than ISIS? Bail-Ins Begin

by Ellen Brown, from The People’s Voice

While the mainstream media focus on ISIS extremists, a threat that has gone virtually unreported is that your life savings could be wiped out in a massive derivatives collapse. Bank bail-ins have begun in Europe, and the infrastructure is in place in the US. Poverty also kills.

At the end of November, an Italian pensioner hanged himself after his entire €100,000 savings were confiscated in a bank “rescue” scheme. He left a suicide note blaming the bank, where he had been a customer for 50 years and had invested in bank-issued bonds. But he might better have blamed the EU and the G20’s Financial Stability Board, which have imposed an “Orderly Resolution” regime that keeps insolvent banks afloat by confiscating the savings of investors and depositors. Some 130,000 shareholders and junior bond holders suffered losses in the “rescue.”

The pensioner’s bank was one of four small regional banks that had been put under special administration over the past two years. The €3.6 billion ($3.83 billion) rescue plan launched by the Italian government uses a newly-formed National Resolution Fund, which is fed by the country’s healthy banks. But before the fund can be tapped, losses must be imposed on investors; and in January, EU rules will require that they also be imposed on depositors.

AE Will Be Back Tomorrow

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: I’m still very sick. As one reader said, it’s a good thing it’s been a slow news weekend. My Redskins won. Payton Manning denied using HGH while stepping back from his wife’s “medical history” comments (there’s a hint in there someplace). Twisters in Dallas laid waste to a bunch of suburbs instead of trailer parks. It’s all very confusing. Especially the part about the Redskins winning a game (and the division 🙂 ). I’ll try to be back at it tonight or in the morning but sitting here in the office is torture right now. Thanks for all the well wishes.

(thanks Monica, Roy and Marc)

Just a quick note. I’ve been very sick this past week and over the last couple days it has gotten worse. I’ve been confined to the couch since Friday and have not had a chance to do any writing. Sorry about that folks. I’m starting to feel a little better today and I hope I will be back at it in the AM. Have a nice Sunday and I will see you soon.

Members of Turkish Military Conspire With Daesh (ISIS™)

(Oooooo Snap! Look at that shit. It was the CIA-linked, US and NATO-backed Turkish military running ISIS™ in Turkey supporting the regime change operation in Syria and NOT Erdogan. The SAME Turkish military that wants to help John Kerry and US MSM outlets (and dickhead independent journalists like Steven Lendman) push a regime change in the country so they can take over again. Go figure. Who could have known that… oh, wait. I did.)

from Sputnik International

Some members of the Turkish military stationed at the Syrian border were apparently communicating with Daesh militants, according to media reports.

A wiretapping operation conducted last year revealed that several Turkish military officers had contacts with Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) militants, and that they might’ve helped the Islamist movement obtain new recruits, according to the Turkish daily Cumhuriyet.

The wiretapping was part of an investigation launched by Ankara Chief Prosecutor’s Office after six Turkish citizens were reported as missing and were possibly recruited to join Daesh by their relatives, the newspaper adds.
