A "retouch" operation for the Left

Indications that, after Golden Dawn, the systemic establishment is planning a similar operation for the Left in Greece

by system failure

For the first time, the SYRIZA Leftist party in Opposition in Greece clearly precedes in recent polls concerning potential national elections in the country. The government knows very well that there is nothing left to do in order to reverse its negative picture and therefore it is possible to accelerate the application of new cruel measures, as lenders demand. Recent statements from Schäuble - Daiselbloom, through which they sent a message one more time to Greece, that "more things need to be done", are not accidental.

Together with the tactics of "artificial destruction" through which the systemic establishment is planning to give a more or less, destroyed country to those who will replace current government, it also tries to begin a "retouch" operation for the Left in Greece. The purpose is to force the Left to abandon "radical" intentions which threaten the system, a kind of "domestication" of the Left, and this shows that there are probably some hidden polls and estimations according to which SYRIZA precedes by a higher percentage.

SYRIZA's different approach stands against neoliberal reforms in Europe and recognized not only in Greece, but also abroad by many people. These reforms were adopted also by the social democrats in Europe as necessary and inevitable. An example of this recognition is Leo Panitch's analysis speaking at the REAL NEWS network (http://adiritos.blogspot.gr/2014/01/syriza-succeeds-in-greece-by.html). Panitch supports that because of this different approach, SYRIZA now precedes in all polls while the neoliberal parties of the government coalition are losing power.

It seems that, the European economic-political elites worry that SYRIZA may become an example for the Leftist parties of Europe on the oncoming euro-elections in May. This could start a "domino effect" of undesirable and uncontrolled rise of a totally opposed to the neoliberal policies Left in Europe.

All these explain the move of Adonis Georgiades, Minister for Health, MP with the Right-wing neoliberal government party Nea Dimokratia, who actually spoke about a potential cooperation with SYRIZA "for the benefit of the country" setting the terms of course, as well as a specific poll published by "Ethnos", one of the biggest newspapers in Greece, according to which, nearly six out of ten people stated that they want to see a compromise between the Right and the Left in order to govern through a new coalition.

It is also not accidental that, lately, the systemic "journalists" of the mainstream media in Greece treat SYRIZA MPs more "gently", since especially the most famous journalists play of course a central role in this operation concerning the "domestication" of the Left.

It appears that on the other hand, SYRIZA leader, Alexis Tsipras, is trying to gain some time and convince that he is willing to follow more systemic-friendly policies to calm Berlin in order to stay alive from the war against him in case that SYRIZA will lead an anti-memorandum government.

In a nearly destroyed country, delivered by the current government, any potential new political coalition which will be called to govern, will have to deal with extremely difficult problems and will be very hard not to retreat to pressure and not to compromise. However, history has shown that, those who try to compromise and increasingly retreat to continuous pressure, finally slip towards the side of the systemic establishment which gradually absorbs them.

The Left in Greece and Europe must show that is determined to give an alternative solution to societies, retaining its basic principles and fighting against neoliberal policies. The oncoming euro-elections is a big opportunity to prove this.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon may be Julian Assange's last chance to escape from the brutal Anglo-American fascist regime

globinfo freexchange   The Anglo-American axis has now become officially a fascist coalition, framed by the rest of its Western pets. UK's Home Secretary Priti Patel, one of the most ruthless ever, decided to extradite Julian Assange to US. No surprise of course. The only question we had in mind is "what took her so long?" And the only answer we can think of, is the fear of an angry public response by Assange's supporters and ordinary people. And we should hope for that, during the time of the battle (and beyond) against that preposterous decision. It seems that the decision has terrified not only independent, but also some mainstream media outlets. As if they have suddenly woke up from a great shock, realizing now for good what this decision would truly mean for press freedom. An article in The Guardian is quite characteristic:   Murderers, torturers and war criminals will be toasting the British home secretary, Priti Patel, tonight. Her decision to approve t

How the elites trick clueless politicians and rob you in broad daylight using the inflation scare

failed evolution   The sequences of the utter fraud:   Money overflow throughout society -> starts losing value -> financial crisis happens -> big banks and corporations dictate bailout programs for them, austerity and cuts for the rest of the society through their corrupted political puppets -> new and existed money is exclusively directed back to them -> starts re-gaining value -> crisis ends -> clueless politicians are happy because they managed to "control inflation" -> people lose homes, jobs, incomes and suffer   Other crisis happens -> prices soar in vital goods and services -> big banks and corporations dictate governments to freeze salaries using the inflation scare -> money value remains high with rising trends -> huge profits for big banks and corporations through soaring prices, tax cuts and subsidies -> crisis ends, prices stabilized -> clueless politicians are happy because they managed to "control inflation"

A history of naked imperialism continues as Biden approves Somalia redeployment

Biden has reversed Donald Trump’s withdrawal of US forces from Somalia and will redeploy Special Operations Forces. It is just the latest move in a long history of destructive US-UK meddling in the Horn of Africa.    by TJ Coles   Part 3 - The US and UK wage proxy war on the ICU, infiltrate the movement with Al Qaeda extremists   The attacks of 9/11 in 2001 provided the George W. Bush administration an excuse to sanction Somali banks, even though the 9/11 Commission cleared the banks of wrongdoing. Since then, Somalia has become a testing ground for the imposition of cashless societies. Convinced that the more right-wing elements of the ICU were “al-Qaeda” fronts, the Joint Special Operations Command and CIA operated covertly in Somalia. Failing to destroy the ICU from within, the US and Britain backed an opposition government in exile comprised of Ethiopian and other warlords. In December 2006, Ethiopia invaded Somalia as a US-British proxy war. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled t

“A historic sham”: Zelensky’s speech to Greece’s parliament sparks national outrage, opens WWII-era wounds

By inviting an Azov fighter to address Greece’s parliament, Zelensky opened the country’s historic wounds and triggered angry demonstrations that have shaken its pro-US government.   by TJ Coles   Part 8 - Anti-NATO protests and massive public opposition to arming Ukraine shake Greek government   In October 2021, Greece and the US amended their Mutual Defense Cooperation Agreement to “ deepen[] and expand[] on [their] partnership to maintain strong, capable, and interoperable militaries. ” Soon after, Greek media reported: “ A large number of helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles …, tanks, cannons, and artillery are expected to reach the Greek port near the border with Turkey in the weeks to come as part of an extensive military shipment that is of unprecedented scale. ” From Bulgaria and the German-based 21st Theater Sustainment Command, the US sent by rail forty-four M117 Guardian Armored Safety Vehicles to Greece, which arrived in November. The “Safety” epithet is propaganda. Jane’s

Day 1160: Julian Assange still in prison and under slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist criminals

failed evolution   On 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorian government of traitor Lenin Moreno, invited the Metropolitan Police into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they arrested Julian Assange . Since then, Assange is kept in Belmarsh high security prison in London, without actual charges.   The real reason world's number one political prisoner is still kept in this high security prison, is because he exposed horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   That Assange, who is in precarious physical and psychological health and who suffered a stroke during court video proceedings, has been condemned to death should not come as a surprise. The ten years he has been detained, seven in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and three in the

It’s always the right time to call George W. Bush a war criminal

If George W. Bush is not going to stand trial for war crimes, he should at the very least stop appearing in public to weigh in on unjustified wars, as he did this week when he accidentally referred to the “wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq.”   by Chip Gibbons    Part 3 - The War That Never Ended   The Iraq War may be Bush’s most monstrous crime, but it is far from his only one. Bush’s entire political career was built on death. As governor of Texas, Bush set records by presiding over 131 executions. His reputation for bloodthirstiness was parodied after his election in a Saturday Night Live sketch in which Bush told the defeated Al Gore, “ Maybe I’ll start a war. Wars are like executions supersized. ” After Nixon’s fall from grace, the nation underwent a reckoning with the larger abuses of the security state. (Obama, in the signature accomplishment of his administration, made sure no such reckoning proceeded for Bush). Almost immediately after these reforms were made, the

Paul Mason’s covert intelligence-linked plot to destroy The Grayzone exposed

Leaked emails reveal British journalist Paul Mason plotting with an intel contractor to destroy The Grayzone through “relentless deplatforming” and a “full nuclear legal” attack. The scheme is part of a wider planned assault on the UK left.   by Kit Klarenberg and Max Blumenthal Part 1 A former Trotskyist and BBC journeyman, journalist Paul Mason has made a career as the establishment’s favorite gatekeeper of the UK left. Since the Russian military incursion into Ukraine, he has cemented his position as one of Britain’s most vocal “left” cheerleaders for Western military intervention. While leading a “U.K. left” delegation to Kiev and a demonstration through the streets of London in support of NATO military escalation against Russia, Mason has accordingly used his platform to assail journalists, academics, Labour party members and private citizens who oppose shipping piles of advanced weaponry to Ukraine.  In a series of recent columns, Mason called for the state-enforced suppression o

World-controlling Bilderberg Group meeting discovered by journalists

The Jimmy Dore Show   The highly secretive Bilderberg Group met in person for the first time since the pandemic, taking up and cordoning off the entire Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington DC to plan world domination while refusing to allow access to any of the plebes whose lives they’re planning or journalists who might cover the proceedings. Jimmy Dore and his panel consisting of The Grayzone ’s Max Blumenthal and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the shadowy organization’s plans and just why the mainstream media chooses to ignore this meeting of some of the world’s most powerful people.  

Today, Colombia votes on a shift to the Left

Colombia heads to the polls today to reject the far-right politics of Iván Duque and Álvaro Uribe and assert that the average Colombian is much more progressive than the traditional politicians who represent them.   by  Luciana Cadahia / Tamara Ospina Posse    Part 2 - The Fog of War   Colombian and international media have played a leading role in portraying the Colombian people as politically conservative. That was the message delivered by news agencies when, in 2016, the peace accord between the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the Colombian government was shockingly voted down in a nationwide plebiscite. The subsequent victory of the pro-Uribe candidate Iván Duque Márquez in the 2018 presidential election was seen as confirmation of the narrative that Colombians tend to vote conservative. That media account obscured several key facts. Then president Juan Manuel Santos disdained the average Colombian, and his government made little effort to explain to them what was
