Mayor Of Ankara: Earthquake Weapons Are Being Tested On Turkey

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
February 13, 2017

Mr. N.R. and Mr. P.K. both noticed this story, and since it’s a topic that we’re interested in on this website, I decided to blog about this. The topic in question is geoengineering and tectonic technologies, which could be used for that purpose, or as weapons of mass destruction. As I’ve noted in previous blogs on this website, former Secretary of Defense in the Clinton Administration, Mr. William Cohen, admitted their existence and even opined that terrorist organizations may be in possession of them.

Note what the Yahoo version of this story claims:

Ankara’s outspoken mayor on Tuesday warned that outside forces could be using sophisticated technology to try to trigger a manmade earthquake in a deliberate bid to harm Turkey’s fragile economy.

Melih Gokcek, who has been mayor of the Turkish capital since 1994, made the outlandish claims on Twitter where he regularly updates his more than 3.7 million followers, often writing in capital letters.

His comments were made after two quakes hit the western Canakkale province on Monday and Tuesday morning, measuring 5.3 and 5.2 magnitude respectively, the Turkish Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) said.

In these tweets, Gokcek shared a video which claimed there were tools for causing manmade quakes, and he called all submarines and ships with large equipment to be taken under control of the authorities.

Gokcek said he had “researched” the two quakes and suggested they could have been caused by possible foreign interference.

“There was a ship conducting seismic research nearby. What this ship was researching and what country it belongs to must be solved,” he wrote. (Emphases added)

Now, apparently when a US Secretary of Defense makes similar claims, they are not “outlandish”, but when the Mayor of the capital of Turkey does, they are. As I suggested in the previous articles on this website, there is a context in which such assertions must be entertained: is there a political context in which an earthquake or other such tectonic disaster, such as a tsunami, would appear to be a little too coincidental. In this respect, I have suggested that the political climate prior to the Indonesian-Malaysian tsunami was a little too coincidental: Catherine Austin Fitts has pointed out her consternation in the sudden and inexplicable trades in sovereign securities that began a week prior to this event; then the event occurred, and a reason was provided for the financial activity. And that meant a technology was involved. And it was nothing new: in World War Two the Allies studied methods of producing tsunamis on Japan prior to, and in aid of, the planned invasion of the home islands, a plan that was, of course, rendered moot by the a-bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Similarly, I pointed out that the Haiti earthquake, followed so quickly by strong earthquakes in the region of Paral, Chile, might have been shots in an “earthquake war.” In this instance there were even warnings of tsunamis from the Paral earthquake throughout the Pacific, especially in Hawaii, but… when the “tsunami” hit, it was barely three feet. That, to my high octane speculative mind implied, again, a technology. After all, if one can create such events, it also implies a technology to damp them. And again, prior to the German reunification – and this is a little-remembered series of incidents – there were a number of severe earthquakes in Soviet Georgia mere weeks prior to the reunification. Georgia was the home of the then Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shervarnadze. When Chancellor Kohl pressed the reunification – really the annexation – of East Germany, there was scarcely, and unusually, a peep from Moscow.

So to my high octane speculative mind, Mayor Gokcek may have good reasons to suspect something is up. It seems clear that the mayor of Turkey’s capital would not simply “spout off” on Twitter without the approval of higher ups. What is of interest here is that Mr. Gokcek is pointing to ships conducting seismic experiments in the region, and this to me suggests he has seen intelligence on the matter. This raises the question of why the origin of the ships is not mentioned. There are two scenarios, granting the proposition for the sake of argument that Mr. Gokcek is correct. The first is that Turkish intelligence simply does not know, for whatever reason. The ships may be flying the flag of a particular country and Turkey may suspect that their real origin lies elsewhere, and thus is not known; or, Turkish intelligence does know, and for the moment, is keeping quiet about it. But in either case, Mr. Gokcek appears to be the “unofficial” mouthpiece of the moment, being used to air a suspicion, but keeping the Turkish government itself out of the picture in the old “plausible deniability” two-step.

There is another clue, however, in the article as to the origin of the ships: Mr. Gokcek wants the ships “to be taken under control of the authorities.” This implies that the ships are not suspected to belong to any major power; after all, if Turkish authorities were to “take them under control”, there would be immediate and perhaps serious repercussions. And that implies that the “foreign interference” that he alleges might be coming from somewhere else. And that brings up Secretary of Defense William Cohen’s non-outlandish remarks to the fore once again, for recall, he maintained the technologies existed, and could be in the hands of “terrorists.” And somehow, I just don’t see ISIS (or whatever name it’s going by at the moment) has the technological competence nor infrastructure to create and sustain the deployment of it. And that implies someone else may be on the seen.

See you on the flip side…

News & Views From The Nefarium – July 14, 2016 – Geopolitics

Just what the heck is going on? Sultan Erdogan now appears to be disillusioned with Ottomania and is singing Kumbaya with Mr. Putin:………

You Tell Me – Article On Ankara’s Ottomania Ends On Curious…

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
March 4, 2016

This one is so very strange and so very bizarre that I have to talk about it, except that I don’t really know what to say about it, nor really, what to make of it. It was shared by Mr. A., and it appeared initially on the reasonably well-respected internet news site,, a site that we have occasionally referred to over the years, here at Here’s the article:

Turkey’s Ankara False Flag Blaming Syrian Kurds Clears Pathway to Turkish-Saudi-Gulf State Invasion of Syria and WWIII

Now, beyond the usual “World War Three is just around the corner” hysteria that one has come to expect over the past few years, the article, as a reading will quickly show, is a rather detailed and informed survey of Turkish policy and politics, the history of false flag Gladio operations, and so on. Indeed, most of the article is written in that sort of dry academic-geopolitical tone that suffuses the blighted works of former Carter Administration national security advisor Zbgnw “Could-I-buy-a-vowel?” Brzznsk’s books, sans Mr. Brzznsk’s heartless and soulless globaloneyist glossalalia.

But at the end of the article, there’s these two paragraphs that stick out like sore thumbs, and which caught Mr. A’s attention, and mine too:

Regime Change Scenario In Ankara?

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
February 27, 2016

This important article was shared by Mr. C.S., and while quite long, it offers its own high octane scenario for the options available to Washington in the Middle East quagmire that the Syrian crisis has become. As usual, I have my own high octane speculations, but those will have to wait until after the article:

Regime Change in Ankara? More Likely Than You Think

So what’s my own high octane speculation here?

Note the final paragraphs of Mr. Whitney’s analysis, and his own high octane speculation:

We continue to believe that the US-Kurdish (YPG) alliance does not really advance US strategic interests in Syria. The US is not interested in Kurdish statehood nor do they care if jihadist militias control the northern quadrant of Syria’s border-region. The real purpose of the US-YPG alliance is to enrage Turkey and provoke them into a cross-border conflict with the Russian-led coalition. If Turkey deploys ground troops to Syria, then Moscow could face the quagmire it has tried so hard to avoid. Turkish forces would serve as a replacement army for the US-backed jihadists and other proxies that have prosecuted the war for the last five years but now appear to be in full retreat.

More importantly, a Turkish invasion would exacerbate divisions inside Turkey seriously eroding Erdogan’s grip on power while creating vulnerabilities the US could exploit by working with its agents in the Turkish military and Intel agency (MIT). The ultimate objective would be to foment sufficient social unrest to incite a color-coded revolution that would dispose of the troublemaking Erdogan in a Washington-orchestrated coup, much like the one the CIA executed in Kiev.

Bombing In Indonesia – High Octane Speculation


Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D
January 16, 2016

A few days ago I was talking with a friend of mine who lives in Indonesia, and, as it turns out, in the capital of that nation, Jakarta. We occasionally talk about various matters of geopolitics and finance, that impact that region of the world. This time, however, as we were talking, the following event literally occurred:

Terror Attacks in Indonesia’s Capital to Shift Regional Balance of Power

There’s a number of points one should note in this article, not the least of which is that the nation is (1) largely Suni, and (2) attempts to be a modern Islamic state. Or to put it country simple, Indonesia is not Saudi Arabia, it is not at the epicenter of the exportation of terrorism or terrorist proxy armies of fundamentalist jihadists. With that in mind, one reads this article with an uneasy feeling, for it contains certain statements that suggest that someone, somewhere, wants to expand this “war on terrorism” to encompass the entire Islamic world, whether or not any given component of that world is an epicenter for terrorism. Consider the following statements in this regard:

Indonesia was considered a central theater in the war on terrorism by many policymakers in the Bush administration. Since Indonesia has the largest Sunni Muslim population in the world, poverty and political instability, could fuel the growth of religious instability. The island of Bali was twice  the scene of gruesome bombings targeting foreign nationals. The bombing in 2002 killed 202 people, while the October 2005 suicide attacks killed at least 20.

The US has been giving sufficient military support since the east Timor independence. The US has numerous military training programs with Indonesia. From 2002-04, Indonesia received $1.3 million from US-IMET (International Military Education and Training) program. The IMET program was suspended from 1999-2002 due to concerns about human rights abuses in East Timor by the Indonesian Military. Indonesia got 14.3 million dollar for the Bali Bomb attack in 2002 from US for Antiterrorism Assistance program.

In 2002-2004 The US Department of Defense funded 4.2 million dollars for the education in counterterrorism practices and strategies for Indonesian military and intelligence officials for Counterterrorism Fellowship Program. US also gave 6 million dollars in 2005 for the Indonesian navy for Maritime Security as foreign military financing.

One notes that Washington – as probably Tokyo, Beijing, Moscow and New Delhi, all view the nation as an important and “pivot” nation in the region.
