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.

Why the US imperialists will boost their efforts to destabilize China through Xinjiang

globinfo freexchange   One of the biggest "wet dreams" of the US imperialists for decades, especially after the Communist victory in 1949, was to break-up China. Xinjiang was among Chinese territories in which the US and the Western imperialism saw an opportunity to grow internal tensions and create serious destabilization against the Asian giant. As The Grayzone revealed in March, 2020, through an extended report :   In recent years, few stories have generated as much outrage in the West as the condition of Uyghur Muslims in China. Reporting on the issue is typically represented through seemingly spontaneous leaks of information and expressions of resistance by Uyghur human rights activists struggling to be heard against a tyrannical Chinese government. True or not, nearly everything that appears in Western media accounts of China’s Uyghur Muslims is the product of a carefully conceived media campaign generated by an apparatus of right-wing, anti-communist Uyghur

Was bombing of Mariupol theater staged by Ukrainian Azov extremists to trigger NATO intervention?

Testimony by evacuated Mariupol residents and warnings of a false flag attack undermine the Ukrainian government’s claims about a Russian bombing of a local theater sheltering civilians.   by Max Blumenthal  Part 7 - The red line: lessons from Syria Was the bombing of the Donetsk Academic Regional Drama Theater of Mariupol a false flag attack executed by Azov extremists to trigger NATO intervention, as some local residents claimed? If so, it was hardly the first cynical deception deployed by Ukraine’s government to draw the West into the conflict, and was unlikely to be the last. On March 16, the day of the incident at the theater, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken declared that “ we have real concerns that Russia could use a chemical weapon, another weapon of mass destruction. ” In the next breath, Blinken pointed to Syria, where he claimed “ we’ve seen them use or acquiesce to [chemical weapon] use. ” It was in Syria where the administration of President Barack Obama imposed its “

Macron vs Le Pen: The terrible outcome of Left's 1968 disastrous compromise

by system failure   It has become completely normal now for people in the "free" and "democratic" West to vote for the "lesser of two evils". Despite the fact that there is nothing democratic and normal in dirty tactics (which include even internal-party coups) organized by bipartisan dictatorships against real-Leftist candidates, the outcome of this process is now considered the new norm. That is, a neoliberal (pseudo-Left for the US) candidate against an alt-right candidate, which is definitely a win-win situation for the capitalist elites against the working class in every country.   This ugly show is repeated election cycle after election cycle. The elites produce huge amounts of propaganda energy, through their corporate media, to remove any anti-establishment real threats. In the final round, they leave their most favored neoliberal Cinderella to face an alt-right bad witch.   Bad witch's role is to scary the liberal and the Leftist voters in ord

“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 2 - The CIA guides Greece’s post-war plan to “kill the communists”   In 1936, Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas became a pro-Nazi dictator with the support of King Geórgios II. Metaxas’ death in 1941 bolstered the Greek Communist Party’s (KKE) anti-Nazi resistance. The KKE had established ELAS, the People’s Liberation Army, to fight the occupying Nazis. Until 1943, ELAS was initially trained by the British Special Operations Executive (SOE), a top-secret unit designed to train European paramilitaries. Indicative of the power of Greek leftism, ELAS’s political wing, the National Liberation Front (EAM), boasted 2 million members. The British Foreign Office fought to restore Geórgios II, explicitly citing his anti-left credentials. Working with Cyprus’s fascist battalion X, the Brits set

3 May 2022 and 1119 days in prison for Julian Assange: It's the World Press Freedom Day, yet the greatest journalist of our times is experiencing a slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist tyranny, with the tolerance of the "free" and "democratic" West

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

The US cries about war crimes while imprisoning a journalist for exposing its war crimes

by Caitlin Johnstone   In what his lawyers have described as a “brief but significant moment in the case,” a British magistrates’ court has signed off on Julian Assange’s extradition to the United States, bringing the WikiLeaks founder one step closer to a US trial under the Espionage Act which threatens press freedoms worldwide. The extradition case now goes to UK Home Secretary Priti Patel for approval, which will likely be forthcoming as Patel is a reliably loyal empire manager. After that point, Assange’s legal team will be able to launch an appeal. This is happening at the same time the United States and the United Kingdom are loudly demanding accountability for alleged war crimes by the Russian military in Ukraine, which is interesting because attempting to bring accountability for war crimes is precisely why Julian Assange is in prison. “He is a war criminal,” President Biden said of Vladimir Putin following allegations of war crimes in Bucha, Ukraine earlier this month. “I thin

The ouster of Imran Khan: How much involvement did the US have in Pakistan’s coup?

Imran Khan joins the long list of deposed prime ministers and underscores the reality that, in Pakistan, whoever the people elect, the U.S.-backed military is always in charge. by Alan Macleod  Part 3 - Why would the US want Khan gone? Pakistan has, historically, had a close relationship with the United States, especially militarily. Between 2002 and 2018, the U.S. gave $33 billion worth of assistance to Pakistan, of which more than $14 billion was military aid. Its armed forces are stocked with the best American gear and its officers are trained in the United States. Pakistan was also a key player in the U.S. occupation of neighboring Afghanistan, with successive administrations allowing the U.S. military to conduct operations from its territory. The result was a humanitarian disaster for the country; an estimated 83,000 Pakistanis lost their lives as a consequence of the War on Terror. Khan, who had long opposed U.S. actions in the region, sharply reduced the nation’s involvement in

How the organized Left got Covid wrong, learned to love lockdowns and lost its mind: an autopsy

It is hard to destroy your own cause and feel righteous while doing so, yet the American left has done it. After more than two centuries at the vanguard of the struggle for freedom, the American left, broadly defined, executed a volte face and embraced anti-working-class policies marketed as purely technical public health measures.   by Christian Parenti   Part 5 - Inflated Death Count?   The Western left justifies its embrace of mandates, lockdowns, and censorship by invoking the dead. The US has the highest reported death rate per hundred thousand of any developed economy. As a friend protested “ but, the deaths are real! ” Indeed, but how many are actually due to Covid? The CDC reports that less than 6 percent of Covid deaths had COVID-19 as “ the only cause mentioned on the death certificate. ” The other 94 percent of deaths occurred “ with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19 ” and, on average, had “ 4.0 additional conditions or causes per death. ”  The death of 84-year-ol

The NATO to TikTok pipeline: Why is TikTok employing so many national security agents?

TikTok has become an enormously influential medium that reaches over one billion people worldwide. Having control over its algorithm or content moderation means the ability to set the terms of global debate and decide what people see. And what they don’t. by Alan Macleod  Part 3 - Not just NATO NATO, however, is far from the only organization newly connected to TikTok. The company’s new Global Lead of Integrity and Authenticity, Chris Roberts, is a former senior director of Technology Policy at the Albright Stonebridge Group (ASG), a powerhouse strategy and consulting firm started by late-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. The ASG has been perhaps the major staffing source for President Biden’s administration, with at least 10 ASG employees appointed to key positions in national security, state and foreign policy positions. Before ASG, Roberts worked, in his own words, on “special projects” for the National Democratic Institute (NDI). The NDI was founded by the Reagan administratio

The West was once very critical of Ukraine's treatment of this population but current media shows that is no longer the case. Why? Clayton Morris dives deep into this topic.
