Interview Brad Johnson on Turkey, Greece, storm-clouds on the horizon 6 months ago Brad Johnson Brad Johnson it is March 11 2020 and you 00:04 know Mark Twain once said history does 00:07 not repeat itself but it does rhyme and 00:10 I can’t help but I mean I can’t help but 00:13 notice that World War one around the 00:17 same time as the Spanish flu had a great 00:20 deal to do with the Ottoman Empire which 00:22 of course was the Turkish Islamic empire 00:23 and air Dewan has actually said publicly 00:28 to his own people though that he was 00:30 sending all these migrants at an Islamic 00:32 army to conquer Europe that governments 00:34 would fall that economies would fall 00:36 because of this migrant invasion there’s 00:38 rumors that shots are fired across the 00:41 border by Turkish forces it looks to me 00:44 an awful lot like several of these 00:45 migrants are in fact Turkish forces hey 00:49 look some of them move and act in a way 00:51 for the videos which look a little 00:53 suspicious for 00:54 poor huddled masses as the Statue of 00:57 Liberty might say they’re just this 01:01 looks suspiciously like Ottoman mark – 01:04 have you got any insight for us about 01:06 what’s going on there yeah I think I 01:09 think I think we can well past the stage 01:12 of suspicion I mean President Erdogan of 01:14 Turkey has has been quite clear in many 01:16 ways many forms and through his main 01:18 lieutenants around him that he fully 01:20 intends to reestablish the Ottoman 01:22 Empire out of that – we’ve seen the head 01:24 of the Muslim Brotherhood come out and 01:26 announced that this guy is the the 01:28 Caliph that he’s going to be the head of 01:30 this new Islamic state that’s going to 01:33 expand and take over the world and one 01:35 of the key elements out of that there 01:37 you know there is 01:39 I mean his intent is clear he’s 01:41 absolutely consolidated his power in 01:44 Turkey 01:45 he’s used the rule honest movement as 01:49 his scapegoat if you will but I harken 01:53 this back to Nazi Germany and and Nazi 01:57 Germany used the Jews as essentially an 02:01 excuse to go crack down and kill people 02:04 and somebody to blame for everything and 02:06 so this they they started to eradicate 02:09 the Jews 02:09 because I just took it so crazy far but 02:12 that was the essence of why they why 02:14 they did that now Aragon has the 02:16 gooeyness as that and and don’t forget 02:19 you know he claimed that there was this 02:20 huge coup fired a couple hundred 02:22 thousand people and now and just take a 02:25 look at that on the face just basically 02:28 overnight within it’s about a three or 02:30 four-day period he fired to a couple 02:33 hundred thousand people and you know 02:35 that now he took a little bit longer to 02:37 get told the mall but also at the same 02:39 time then he replaced them all so how 02:41 long would it take you to prepare to get 02:44 rid of two hundred thousand people 02:46 employees who you deemed you know kind 02:48 of untrustworthy and then replace them 02:51 all the people that you do consider 02:52 trustworthy I mean that’s a shift of 02:54 four hundred thousand people that’s not 02:55 something that’s prepared overnight so 02:57 between when he did this and when he ran 03:02 the the you know the from from when the 03:05 coup took place to when he changed out 03:06 all these people it’s absolutely 03:08 impossible that that there was enough 03:10 time for him to prepare for all that so 03:12 this was all planned out in advance he 03:14 did it so that he could consolidate his 03:16 power he has done that he continues to 03:18 use Galan as a negotiating point with 03:22 the United States and he’s trying to 03:24 make deals where Glenn will be with the 03:27 United States now for trade deals and 03:29 all that Glenn will be categorized as a 03:32 terrorist group which turkey does 03:34 categorize them as a terrorist group but 03:36 you know they’re they’re you know a 03:39 non-state player with no army and you 03:43 know even if they had ever even vaguely 03:45 aspired to such a thing as to to stage a 03:48 coup and and Turkey I mean any any 03:51 chance of them doing anything of that 03:53 nature is long long long long gone and 03:55 frankly I think it’s ridiculous to 03:57 suggest they were even trying to take 03:59 overthrow Turkey but this indicates 04:02 where we are with with Aragon Aragon 04:06 recognizes that there is no way to 04:09 peacefully re-establish the Ottoman 04:11 Empire and expand because from his view 04:15 the Ottoman Empire whatever was ever 04:17 conquered at any 04:18 time anywhere in the history by the 04:20 Ottoman Empire in its previous iteration 04:22 still belongs to them and that those 04:25 resources in that country wherever it is 04:27 belong to them so all of the Arabic 04:30 speaking countries most of Europe all 04:33 those areas from his perspective belong 04:37 to him and those people are the 04:39 resources and everything should be under 04:41 his direct control so in trying to 04:43 re-expand that he’s now starting to bump 04:45 up against the problems but he 04:46 recognizes as I said there is no 04:48 peaceful way to reestablish the Ottoman 04:50 Empire so he knows it has to be done 04:52 through tricks and violence and all 04:54 sorts of other things so we’ve seen the 04:56 Muslim Brotherhood expand very 04:58 aggressively aggressively into Europe 05:01 we’ve seen him push back now there’s 05:03 some confrontation going on with Putin 05:06 and Russia which Turkey and Russia have 05:08 long long long long been traditional 05:10 enemies and about a couple of Wars and 05:12 and so they’re very suspicious of each 05:15 other and rightly so 05:16 and in a recent summit meeting in the 05:18 past few days with Putin they had 05:21 Catherine the Great this is this big 05:23 statue that was behind the Turkish 05:25 delegation looking down on them it was 05:28 up on a kind of a high pedestal up on 05:29 the wall so looking down at the Turkish 05:31 delegation and Catherine the Great was 05:33 one of the leaders of Russia that had 05:35 the most success and kind of crushing 05:37 the Ottoman Empire towards the end of 05:39 their reign and so it was it was a 05:42 statement and there were many things 05:43 like that through these meetings where 05:45 Russia was taking advantage of the 05:48 situation to kind of you know send 05:52 messages to them that you know will 05:54 stand up to you 05:55 so this confrontation that we see in 05:57 Syria aragón needs that to expand and 06:00 now we’re seeing films being smuggled 06:02 out that purport to show Turkish 06:04 aircraft flying into Greek airspace and 06:07 chasing after helicopters or you know 06:11 basically trying to intimidate the local 06:13 troops Turkey and Greece also that many 06:16 many many wars through the years so 06:18 they’re antagonists as well there are 06:22 rumors of these refugees that have been 06:25 released in the many thousands out of 06:27 Turkey to go into Europe have been 06:29 issued tear gas and weapon 06:31 and things like that and consider 06:33 themselves part of a Turkish contingent 06:35 if you will and Turkey does have 06:38 surrogates all of these people most of 06:40 the people although they’re apparently 06:43 backed up by Turkish troops for example 06:45 in this zone with it in Syria that he 06:49 has already essentially annexed many of 06:51 those are his surrogates that are 06:52 Syrians originally Arab speaking air 06:55 Arabs that that view themselves now as 06:59 the surrogate for support for Turkey and 07:01 of course his goal there as he wants to 07:03 wipe out the Kurds so they’re also again 07:06 sort of the Bugaboo that he can use as 07:09 an excuse to do a lot of things he has 07:12 to wipe out the terrorists Kurds and he 07:15 has to wipe out the terrorists 07:16 googliness 07:16 so this tactic is one that’s been used 07:19 over and over and over in world history 07:21 and it’s one that clearly he’s setting 07:22 himself up for he’s starting to show 07:24 force to his neighbors I think these 07:27 things coming out of Greece are true 07:29 where he’s flying his military aircraft 07:32 into their airspace because he wants to 07:34 intimidate and it’s it’s all part of 07:37 this overall goal to expand Turkey and 07:40 back into a new version of the Ottoman 07:43 Empire so I think that’s what he’s up to 07:46 there’s a lot of indicators that this is 07:47 all true so as a as a distillate of that 07:51 essentially he’s finished his move of 07:54 purification where anything any 07:57 vestigial at Kemal atatürk components of 08:01 Turkey are gone and now he’s behaving as 08:05 the anointed caliph which of course he 08:09 was declared to be by the Muslim 08:11 Brotherhood and is starting his real 08:13 push to re-establish the Ottoman Empire 08:16 in Europe which you know and that’s 08:17 frankly how it looks but it’s just one 08:19 of those statements which is just too 08:22 big to just make it’s just too big it is 08:26 and I guarantee you one of the steps 08:28 that’s coming in the near future in 08:30 Ankara which is the capital of Turkey 08:34 there is a very large or named beautiful 08:39 Moslem mausoleum kind of setting for 08:43 were added to at 08:44 body was interned which I visited it’s 08:46 very nice and that I guarantee you is a 08:50 stick in the eye of Aragon and he is 08:52 absolutely at his first opportunity 08:54 going to get rid of that that will be 08:56 the signal for all of us for you know 08:58 here’s one of my predictions once that 09:01 takes place Aragon is fully confident in 09:03 his absolute Iron Fist control over 09:06 Turkey and that will be the signal that 09:09 he’s going to start to expand even more 09:10 aggressively that’ll be what you’re 09:12 waiting for that’s that’s gonna be a 09:13 very clear signal yeah well I got to say 09:15 I I was used last year I was thinking it 09:18 was critical that that they they pushed 09:21 Turkey out of NATO and now I’m thinking 09:23 boy it’s a really good thing that we 09:24 though the West has a military base 09:27 smack dab middle of it suddenly it 09:29 strikes me as a really good move thank 09:31 you very much Brad Thompson we’re gonna 09:33 be back in touch I’m sure in a week on 09:35 some of these subjects again Click for entire transcript Continue Reading Previous Brad Johnson Trump’s IC Picks, Turkey and Muslim Brotherhood connection, and Intelligence
