A new attempt to "domesticate" the Left in Greece

The systemic establishment in panic

by system failure

The well-known representatives of the banking-media dictatorship in Greece have launched recently the propaganda, for one more time, through the propaganda frequencies surrounding the country. (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/08/a-country-surrounded-by-propaganda.html) Using the known cliches of the type "there will be no more measures", "we should not disturb the political stability of the country now that walks on the recovery road", etc., they tried again to give false promises and spread the fear to the Greek people, not to vote for an anti-systemic government during possible national elections.

There will be no recovery, of course, no improvement because in reality, they don't care about the recovery of the Greek economy. The only thing that current government-puppet has in mind, is to stay in power by any means until 2016 to complete the experiment, applying every measure from the neoliberal agenda of the Troika lenders.

The government directly intervened in order to prevent broadcasting SYRIZA's leader, Alexis Tsipras, speech at the Thessaloniki International Trade Fair (TITF), by the new supposedly national broadcaster, NERIT. This incident led to a series of resignations of NERIT executives, while it is another indication of increased governmental panic at the increasing possibility of national elections.

Instead of staying calm, the weakened government confirmed that acts under panic through further unnecessary moves. According to some information, there was a new direct intervention by the Greek PM, Antonis Samaras, signaling to the systemic media to "troll" Alexis Tsipras (http://www.tvxs.gr/news/ellada/prothypoyrgika-tilefona-se-idiotika-kanalia-gia-na-min-metadothei-i-omilia-tsipra), while the Deputy Prime Minister and leader of PASOK, Evangelos Venizelos, made a new request to Samaras, asking for the abolishment of the current electoral law, which was voted in the past by his party and gives 50 bonus seats in the parliament to the first party in national elections, even in case that wins the elections by one vote! The first time that Venizelos made such a request was right after the recent euroelections when SYRIZA won. Recent polls have shown that SYRIZA is preceding of Samaras' New Democracy, by 6 percentage units. (http://www.thetoc.gr/eng/politics/article/syriza-leads-new-democracy-by-6-in-new-poll)

These are rather positive signs because they show that the system didn't manage to handle the Left in Greece yet. A Left which appears determined to follow its own policy and restore the real democracy in Greece.

However, the battle is not over yet. There are signs showing that a part of the banking-media establishment in Greece is ready to abandon government to join a possible coalition against Troika's policies with SYRIZA in charge, so that to keep in touch with power. The other part - probably the biggest one - is determined to fight against a possible Left government by all means, forcing it into "humiliating" compromises, or, throwing it from power so that other neoliberal forces to complete the experiment.

Tsipras' declarations from TITF (http://www.macropolis.gr/?i=portal.en.economy.1501), beyond their substantial meaning, are a good tactic move because they put government to a more difficult position as it will be forced to oppose Troika, playing its last card to retain a chance to win again in possible national elections. These declarations also force moderate government MPs to confront those who are totally faithful to the neoliberal agenda, bringing further instability to the already weakened government coalition.

However, because current government has a specific "mission", which is to complete the experiment in Greece, there is another possibility, which is to proceed in further cruel measures, in order to deliver chaos to a potential Left government (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/01/the-tactics-of-artificial-destruction.html), so that to force such government to retreat from most of its initial declarations and probably abandon power very fast, giving it to supposedly new political formations-creations of the systemic establishment (http://adiritos.blogspot.gr/2014/05/a-banking-media-establishment-creation.html), so that these to take the responsibility to finish the experiment.

The press conference of SYRIZA in TITF, beyond Tsipras' declarations, had characteristics of a systemic party in power. The system has probably understood that SYRIZA won't lose power soon, so the only option is to persist in a "retouch" operation for the Left (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/01/a-retouch-operation-for-left.html), trying to transform it to a more systemic-friendly political power.

However, despite the known propaganda by various systemic "parrots", a significant part of the Greek people who want to escape from the neoliberal catastrophe, would never like to see a transformed Left - as happened to the former "Socialistic" PASOK in Greece and "Social Democratic" European parties - to end being under total control by the banking-corporate lobbies.

Today's conditions are such that, the Left in Greece could not be able to change the course of the class-war in favor of the majority by itself. It could trigger, however, a general rise of the Left in Europe which could block, for a start, Europe's catastrophic course towards the new, brutal Feudalism.

Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk among the biggest billionaire profiteers of the COVID-19 pandemic

globinfo freexchange

A new report by the Institute for Policy Studies, shows that between January 1, 2020 and April 10, 2020, 34 of the US’s wealthiest 170 billionaires have seen their wealth increase by tens of millions of dollars.

Eight of these billionaires —Jeff Bezos (Amazon), MacKenzie Bezos (Amazon), Eric Yuan (Zoom), Steve Ballmer (Microsoft), John Albert Sobrato (Silicon Valley real estate), Elon Musk (Tesla and SpaceX), Joshua Harris (Apollo Global Management), and Rocco Commisso (Mediacom) — have seen their net worth surge by over $1 billion.

The Jeff Bezos Wealth Surge is an unprecedented dynamic in the history of modern markets. Tracking Bezos’ wealth requires a real-time hour-by-hour tracker. As of the publication of the report [April 23, 2020], Bezos’ wealth has increased over $25 billion since January 1, 2020 and $12 billion since February 21st, 2020, the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. 
The stock market crash initially left Bezos’ net worth deeply damaged, down to…

It has started: Greece becomes the blueprint for the 21st century corporate feudalism

globinfo freexchange
Greece has just become the blueprint for the 21st century corporate feudalism through a preposterous environmental bill passed on Tuesday.
Just when the neoliberal government lifted most of the restriction measures that were imposed to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, it rushed to pass the bill through unconstitutional actions. These have been strongly condemned by the main opposition party, SYRIZA.
As reported by the Associated Press:
Greek lawmakers approved a controversial environmental bill Tuesday that the opposition and environmental groups slammed for opening the door to exploratory oil and gas drilling in protected areas.

[...]

On the eve of the vote, Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Fund said they had collected 30,000 signatures in an online petition against the legislation, which they say will remove vital safeguards for environmental protection.

Beyond the drilling, this legislation is deeply problematic in many areas, as has already been estab…

The neoliberal machine mocks Millennials and Gen Xers through a documentary about Bernie's awful mistreatment by the corporate media!

globinfo freexchange
Now that the "Bernie Sanders" threat for the establishment has been neutralized (for a second time), the neoliberal machine is free to pretend that it cares about the truth.
Kyle Kulinski speaks about a new documentary by VICE about the media bias against Bernie Sanders. Although the doc trailer is pretty impressive, Kulinski starts with a pretty remarkable argument he saw on Twitter:
                         Credit to VICE. Thank you for this documentary. Curious how it released after Bernie dropped out. 

Kulinski finds that the mainstream media still have enough power to neutralize an undesirable candidate, as they did with Bernie, despite the fact that most of the people don't trust them. He also explains the demographics of this year's race for the leadership of the Democratic party.

As he supports, Millennials and Gen Xers overwhelmingly supported Bernie Sanders against the Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation (in which Bernie actually be…

Τα ψυγεία της Νάνσι και οι επικοινωνιακές αθλιότητες μιας χρεοκοπημένης ιδεολογίας

globinfo freexchange
Θύελλα αντιδράσεων προκάλεσε η "συνέντευξη" που έδωσε, εν μέσω πανδημίας, η επικεφαλής της Βουλής των Αντιπροσώπων και "αρχι-βαρόνη" του κόμματος των Δημοκρατικών, Νάνσι Πελόζι, σε έναν από τους ακριβοπληρωμένους αποχαυνωτές των μαζών στα Αμερικανικά μίντια. 
Ο "χρυσοκάνθαρος" διασκεδαστής, James Corden, σε απευθείας σύνδεση, πήρε "συνέντευξη" από την Πελόζι που βρισκόταν στο σπίτι της. Μέσα από ένα αποκρουστικά γλυκανάλατο τετ-α-τετ "αβάσταχτης ελαφρότητας", η Πελόζι άρχισε να λέει πόσο της αρέσει η σοκολάτα και να επιδεικνύει τη συλλογή από σοκολάτες και παγωτά στα πανάκριβα, τιγκαρισμένα ψυγεία της.
Η επικοινωνιακή αυτή αθλιότητα, υποτίθεται ότι στήθηκε για να δείξει το ανθρώπινο πρόσωπο των ανθρώπων της εξουσίας και μάλιστα αυτών που θεωρούνται σήμερα (αν είναι δυνατόν) η Αριστερά στην Αμερική! 
Εν μέσω μιας άνευ προηγουμένου κρίσης, με χιλιάδες νεκρούς από την πανδημία στην Αμερική, με εκατομμύρια να χάνουν τη…

New court files expose Sheldon Adelson’s security team in US spy operation against Julian Assange

An exclusive investigation by The Grayzone reveals new details on the critical role Sheldon Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands played in an apparent CIA spying operation targeting Julian Assange, and exposes the Sands security staff who helped coordinate the malicious campaign.

I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole.

Part 2 - Pompeo outlines the attack on Assange
Pompeo’s first public speech as CIA Director, hosted at the Washington DC-based Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank on April 13, 2017, was one of the most paranoid and resentful addresses ever delivered by an agency chief.
The former Republican congressman from Kansas opened his speech with an extended tirade against the “Philip Agees in the world,” referring to the CIA whistleblower who handed over thousands of classified documents to leftist publishers that revealed shocking details of illegal US regime change and assassination …

COVID-19 took Chicago black lives first & exposed structural racism

Democracy Now!
The coronavirus pandemic's disproportionate toll on African Americans through the story of Chicago's first 100 recorded deaths. 
A report by ProPublica found that 70 of the first 100 people to die were African American. Black people account for 30% of Chicago's population and 72% of COVID-19 deaths.
ProPublica reporter Adriana Gallardo, who contributed to the report "COVID-19 Took Black Lives First. It Didn't Have To.", says the story paints a picture of "sophisticated structural racism" in Chicago.

How big wireless lobbied governments to build 5G for citizen data collection and surveillance

While selling 5G technology to the public as a means for faster downloads, Big Wireless — comprising a web of telecom companies, lobbyists and law firms– is spending millions to lobby governments the world over to implement the next generation of cellular technology because of its potential for data collection and surveillance of citizens.
by Derrick Broze 
Part 1
While the debate continues around 5G’s potential impact on human health, the environment and wildlife, often overlooked in the discussion about 5G is how the technology will be used for data collection and surveillance. Big Wireless has spent over three decades lobbying  state powers to build this technology while selling it to the public as a means for faster downloads.
In that time the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association – an organization whose leadership has maintained a revolving door relationship with the U.S. Federal Communication Commission – has collaborated on or guided regulatory policy related to…

Trump unveils plan that would see Big Pharma reap massive profits from COVID-19 vaccine

President Trump has revealed a plan to mobilize the US military to deliver mass vaccinations across the country, coupled with Operation Warp Speed, a “Manhattan project-style” race to produce a COVID-19 vaccine.
by Raul Diego
Part 2 - A tug of war for the SNS
The Trump administration’s ostensibly independent program to develop and deploy a vaccine against COVID-19 had been in the hands of his son-in-law, Jared Kushner and Trump advisor, Peter Navarro, though Bloomberg reported in April that HHS Secretary Alex Azar had been tasked by Trump to speed up the development of a vaccine and had been meeting for at least a month prior with White House officials. 
The rollout is occurring as Congressional attention focuses on irregularities surrounding the supply of ventilators in the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS), a thousand of which were shipped to South Africa just the other day.

In addition, yesterday’s so-called “whistleblower” testimony by ousted Biomedical Advanced Research and Devel…

Νέες ενδείξεις για τα σενάρια "ηλεκτρονικών" εκλογών νοθείας

globinfo freexchange

Από τις 15 Απριλίου, είχαμε γράψει ότι οι δηλώσεις Πέτσα περί άλματος στην Ψηφιακή Διακυβέρνηση ίσως έχουν σκοπό να προετοιμάσουν το έδαφος για ένα καινούργιο σύστημα ηλεκτρονικής ψήφου.
Είχαμε επίσης επισημάνει ότι ενδεχομένως η κυβέρνηση να προωθήσει ένα σύστημα ηλεκτρονικής ψηφοφορίας σε πιθανές εθνικές εκλογές. Θα το κάνει, προφανώς, με τη δικαιολογία ότι ένα δεύτερο κύμα πανδημίας το φθινόπωρο, μπορεί να ξεφύγει από τον έλεγχο, αν οι πολίτες προσέλθουν μαζικά στις κάλπες για να ψηφίσουν με τον παραδοσιακό τρόπο.
Είχαμε τονίσει ότι τα συστήματα ηλεκτρονικής ψηφοφορίας έχουν δεχθεί έντονη κριτική, καθώς θεωρούνται ιδιαίτερα διαβλητά. Χαρακτηριστικό παράδειγμα αποτελούν οι Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες, όπου αυξάνονται συνεχώς οι καταγγελίες για εκλογική νοθεία και συζητείται έντονα η επιστροφή στον παραδοσιακό τρόπο ψηφοφορίας μέσω του χάρτινου ψηφοδελτίου.
Άρα, για μια κυβέρνηση, όπως η κυβέρνηση Μητσοτάκη - που προσομοιάζει τα χαρακτηριστικά ενός καθεστώτος, α…
