(Before It's News)

The Gullenists are smelling blood in the water and the regime change propagandists see an opportunity so the Mockingbirds are out in force this morning ranting about how Gen. Mike “the Mad Russian” Flynn was just found to have been a registered foreign agent lobbying for the next regime change target, Turkey.

Only problem with that story is that it’s been well known for months… and it wasn’t really Turkey that he was lobbying for, but rather a Dutch businessman who had been selected to head the Turkey-U.S. Business Council.

“An intelligence consulting firm founded by retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Donald Trump’s top military adviser, was recently hired as a lobbyist by an obscure Dutch company with ties to Turkey’s government and its president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The revelation of that new lobbying contract, which has not been previously reported, raises several questions given that Trump is said to be considering Flynn, the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), to take over as either Secretary of Defense or National Security Advisor…

A review of Dutch records shows that the company was founded by Ekim Alptekin, an ally of Erdogan’s who is director of the Turkey-U.S. Business Council, a non-profit arm of Turkey’s Foreign Economic Relations Board. Members of the Foreign Economic Relations Board are chosen by Turkey’s general assembly and its minister of economy. In the role, Alptekin helped coordinate Erdogan’s visit to the U.S. earlier this year.” Daily Caller, Nov. 11th, 2016

Even Rachel “the Mad McCarthyite” Maddow covered this tired story back then. She got it wrong, but she covered it.

“Maddow also mentioned that Flynn’s intelligence firm was on the payroll of Turkey while he was working on the Trump campaign and getting classified briefings from the United States.” JoeMyGod Nov. 19th, 2016

Flynn didn’t lobby for Turkey. He was hired by a Dutch businessman who just happened to be on a US/Turkey business council and the only thing that appears to have been done by Flynn during the time his company was contracted to lobby for the guy was to pen an op-ed which basically told the truth about Gulen and his supporters.

Flynn wrote an op-ed for The Hill on Tuesday, just before Trump’s stunning upset of Hillary Clinton, in which he heaped praise on Erdogan and called on the next president, whoever that would be, to accede his request to extradite the U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gülen back to Turkey.

“Gülen’s vast global network has all the right markings to fit the description of a dangerous sleeper terror network,” Flynn wrote in the op-ed, in which he called Gulen a “shady Islamic mullah” and “radical Islamist.” Daily Caller, Nov. 11th, 2016

Currently in Syria, things are breaking down between the U.S., Russia and Turkey over the finer points of the Syrian balkinization operation a.k.a. the Greater Kurdistan project. So of course, re-hashing this ridiculous propaganda at this time serves our CIA’s interests. Plus you can tie it into the “Russia hacking” disinformation as well as the anti-Trump movement and it’s a win-win-win-win-thingy or whatever the mindless corporate drones say these days.

The story is old. It was well known by ALL months ago. The guy told the truth about Gulen and his terrorist organization and he never took a dime directly from Erdogan or Turkey.

But then again, none of that matters to paid shills for the CIA like Madcow and Joe S.

“It’s not what it is, it’s what it can be made to look like”… right?
