Ορισμένα σενάρια για τις επερχόμενες εκλογές

Μια κρίσιμη καμπή για Ελλάδα και Ευρώπη

του system failure

Μετά την αποτυχία της κυβέρνησης να μαζέψει τους 180 για εκλογή νέου Προέδρου της Δημοκρατίας, η χώρα μπαίνει και πάλι σε μια σύντομη προεκλογική περίοδο. Κατά το επόμενο διάστημα και μέχρι τις 25 Ιανουαρίου, θα πρέπει να περιμένουμε μια άνευ προηγουμένου προπαγάνδα από τους γνωστούς μηχανισμούς της παγκόσμιας χρηματοπιστωτικής μαφίας εντός και εκτός Ελλάδας. Ήδη, έχει αρχίσει και πάλι ένας νέος γύρος της γνωστής προπαγάνδας της καταστροφής, με πρωτεργάτη τον ίδιο τον Σαμαρά, αλλά και με την αναμενόμενη πλέον "έξωθεν" βοήθεια, καθώς ο χρόνος μέχρι την ημέρα των εκλογών είναι σχετικά λίγος.

Όλες οι δημοσκοπήσεις δείχνουν προβάδισμα για τον ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, προς το παρόν, αλλά είναι αμφίβολο αν θα μπορέσει να σχηματίσει αυτοδύναμη κυβέρνηση. Ακολουθούν ορισμένα σενάρια:

Σενάριο 1:

Ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ σχηματίζει αυτόνομη κυβέρνηση, ή, κυβέρνηση συνασπισμού με κόμματα του αντι-μνημονιακού μετώπου. Πρόκειται για το χειρότερο σενάριο για την παγκόσμια χρηματοπιστωτική μαφία, καθώς θα μπορούσε να πυροδοτήσει μια "ανεξέλεγκτη" άνοδο της Αριστεράς στην Ευρώπη. Στην περίπτωση αυτή, η τραπεζομιντιακή δικτατορία στην Ελλάδα θα κηρύξει πόλεμο εναντίον της νέας κυβέρνησης, με σκοπό να την αποσταθεροποιήσει και να την ρίξει από το βάθρο της εξουσίας, όσο το δυνατόν γρηγορότερα.

Σενάριο 2:

Ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ δεν καταφέρνει να συγκεντρώσει το απαραίτητο ποσοστό για να σχηματίσει αυτόνομη κυβέρνηση. Καθώς οι επιλογές στο αντι-μνημονιακό μέτωπο είναι περιορισμένες, ενδεχομένως να αναγκαστεί να σχηματίσει κυβέρνηση με το ΠΑΣΟΚ (εφόσον μπει στη βουλή), το οποίο θα εμφανιστεί με ένα πιο φιλολαϊκό προφίλ, έτοιμο να απομακρυνθεί από την νεοφιλελεύθερη ιδεολογία για να επιστρέψει στις ιδεολογικές του ρίζες, ή, ακόμα και με το Ποτάμι, το οποίο είναι ένα καθαρό δημιούργημα του μιντιακού κατεστημένου, προκειμένου να αποσπάσει ψήφους από την Αριστερά. Ενδεχομένως τα στελέχη του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ να θεωρήσουν ότι θα έχουν το πάνω χέρι και θα επιβάλουν τις δικές τους αποφάσεις, αλλά είναι βέβαιο ότι τα συστημικά αυτά κόμματα θα χρησιμοποιηθούν για να ελέγξουν την κυβερνητική συμμαχία με σκοπό να προστατεύσουν τα "επιτεύγματα" του Ελληνικού πειράματος, σε πρώτη φάση, στο όνομα, πάντα, των "μεταρρυθμίσεων". Στη συνέχεια, θα χρησιμοποιηθούν για να αποσταθεροποιήσουν την κυβερνητική συμμαχία, εφόσον το συστημικό κατεστημένο νιώσει ότι αρχίζει να απειλείται σοβαρά η κυριαρχία του.

Σενάριο 3:

Κανένα από τα δύο μέτωπα δεν καταφέρνει να σχηματίσει κυβέρνηση. Σε περίπτωση πολιτικού αδιεξόδου με επαναλαμβανόμενες εκλογικές διαδικασίες, το συστημικό κατεστημένο θα βρει μια καλή δικαιολογία για να σχηματίσει μια κυβέρνηση εξολοκλήρου από τεχνοκράτες, που θα αποτελούνται ως επί το πλείστον από τραπεζικές μαριονέτες, η οποία θα παρουσιαστεί ως η μόνη βιώσιμη λύση. Αυτού του είδους το "υπο-πείραμα" έχει ήδη δοκιμαστεί σε Ελλάδα και Ιταλία με τις τραπεζικές μαριονέτες Παπαδήμο και Μόντι. Αυτή η "λύση"-παράμετρος στο Ελληνικό πείραμα θα μπορούσε να αποτελέσει σοβαρή απειλή για την Ευρωπαϊκή κοινοβουλευτική δημοκρατία, καθώς θα μπορούσε να χρησιμοποιηθεί και σε άλλες χώρες, σε περιόδους πολιτικών κρίσεων, καταλήγοντας τελικά μια μόνιμη πρακτική και τελικά, εδραιώνοντας οριστικά την κυριαρχία των πλουτοκρατών επί της πλειοψηφίας.

Σενάριο 4:

Η άνευ προηγουμένου προπαγάνδα της καταστροφής που θα εξαπολυθεί από τους μηχανισμούς της παγκόσμιας χρηματοπιστωτικής μαφίας εντός και εκτός Ελλάδας, κατά τη διάρκεια της σύντομης περιόδου μέχρι την ημέρα των εκλογών, καταφέρνει να πείσει μια κρίσιμη μάζα αναποφάσιστων, να ψηφίσουν για "σταθερότητα". Έτσι, η Νέα Δημοκρατία παίρνει οριακό προβάδισμα και καταφέρνει να σχηματίσει εκ νέου κυβέρνηση συνασπισμού. Μια παραλλαγή για το πως θα μπορούσε να συμβεί κάτι τέτοιο: http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/blog-post_25.html

Κάτι τέτοιο θα μπορούσε να αποδειχθεί πραγματικός εφιάλτης, καθώς μια νέα νεοφιλελεύθερη κυβέρνηση θα είχε όλο το χρόνο να εφαρμόσει κάθε πτυχή του πειράματος στην Ελλάδα, ή, ακόμα και να δοκιμάσει νέα υπο-πειράματα υπό τις εντολές της τρόικα. Αυτό θα σήμαινε ότι οι λαοί δεν έχουν τη διάθεση να αντισταθούν και το πείραμα θα μπορούσε να επεκταθεί σε όλη την Ευρώπη. Πιθανόν να σηματοδοτήσει την έλευση της νέας παγκόσμιας Φεουδαρχίας.

Η Ευρωπαϊκή Κεντρική Τράπεζα (ΕΚΤ), θα χρησιμοποιηθεί ως εργαλείο ώστε να οδηγηθεί η Ευρώπη στην επιθυμητή ομοσπονδιοποίηση με τα χαρακτηριστικά, όμως, μιας αυτοκρατορίας (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/11/blog-post_30.html), παρά μιας δημοκρατικής ομοσπονδίας. Το Σενάριο 3 θα είναι ενδεχομένως το πιο κατάλληλο για μια τέτοια προοπτική, καθώς ο "αυτοκράτορας" Ντράγκι έχει ήδη τον έλεγχο της ευρωζώνης, κυρίως μέσω της απόφασης για απεριόριστη αγορά κρατικών ομολόγων από την ΕΚΤ, η οποία λήφθηκε πριν από δύο χρόνια: http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2012/09/blog-post_8431.html

Ειδικότερα, σε περίπτωση που επαληθευτεί το Σενάριο 1, η ΕΚΤ θα εκβιάζει την νέα κυβέρνηση, απειλώντας ότι δεν θα αγοράζει κρατικά ομόλογα και άρα θα κόψει τη ρευστότητα, σε περίπτωση που η Ελλάδα επιλέξει ένα διαφορετικό δρόμο, μια αντι-νεοφιλελεύθερη πολιτική, προς την κατεύθυνση δηλαδή της αναδόμησης του κοινωνικού κράτους και των εργασιακών δικαιωμάτων, την επαναφορά του κατώτατου μισθού στα προ-κρίσης επίπεδα, κ.λ.π.

Το σύστημα, ωστόσο, δείχνει σημάδια πανικού, που σημαίνει ότι οι Ευρωπαίοι αξιωματούχοι δεν γνωρίζουν ακριβώς πως θα αντιδράσει ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ. Σε περίπτωση που ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ έχει κρυφή ατζέντα και πιεστεί από τους δανειστές να καταργήσει κάποιες κόκκινες γραμμές, θα μπορούσε να εθνικοποιήσει την τράπεζα της Ελλάδας και να επιστρέψει σε εθνικό νόμισμα, βάζοντας δυναμίτη στην ευρωζώνη. Αυτό θα μπορούσε να αποβεί καταστροφικό για τα σχέδια των πλουτοκρατών, καθώς θα μπορούσε να πυροδοτήσει μια άνοδο των Αριστερών κομμάτων που θα ακολουθούσαν τη συνταγή του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ και θα οδηγούσαν την Ευρώπη προς την αληθινή δημοκρατία και την ενοποίηση κάτω από διαφορετικούς όρους, προς όφελος των λαών.

Τα πάντα θα εξαρτηθούν από το αν οι λαοί επιλέξουν να αγωνιστούν, αντί να παραδοθούν στην "αυτοκρατορία".

Maduro's opening to Russia

The US is conducting an oil war to destroy Russia and Venezuela, the latter country’s President Nicolas Maduro said on Monday.”

'A real oil war is underway,' he said. 'Its goal is to destroy Russia, to drive Russia into a collapse as a global power and President Obama admitted the fact in a radio interview today.'”

Simultaneously, the current slump in oil prices is also spearheaded at Venezuela, Maduro believes. 'It seeks to turn our country into a colony, to destroy our independence and our revolution with the aid of an economic collapse.'”

'Still, neither Russia nor Venezuela will surrender and we’ll continue our struggle and they won’t overpower us,' Maduro said.”


Nicolás Maduro is certainly not as charismatic as Chávez was, but should had take better advantage of Venezuela's position inside OPEC, being also one of the first members of the organization. Russia should also approach Venezuela, especially after the latest decision by - the manipulated by the US oil industry and the Saudi monarchs - OPEC, which harms the interests of both countries. Venezuela must also take advantage of Brazil's position inside BRICS and form with, as many as possible, Latin American countries a strong coalition against brutal Western corporate and financial monopolies.

Cold War 2.0 : Strategic nuclear force top priority in 2015 for Russia

Military armaments towards a frenzied course in the new Cold War era

As Russia continues enhancing its combat capabilities, the army will focus on developing the strategic nuclear force in 2015, a senior military official said Monday. 'The condition and development of the strategic nuclear force is the top priority, of course,' Russian General Staff chief Valery Gerasimov told a local TV channel.”

'All strategic routes of approach ... have been put under control,' Tass news agency quoted him as saying, who added that the combat capabilities of the army had grew 1.3 times. The Russian Navy, he noted, has conducted 1.5 times more practice cruises in 2014 than that in 2013. Russia gradually restores its presence in all areas of the world oceans, with Russian warships calling at 140 ports this year, Gerasimov said.”

According to Russia's federal budget for 2015, the defense budget takes 3.286 trillion rubles (some 81 billion U.S. dollars at the time it was released), which is equivalent to 4.2 percent of the gross domestic product, 0.8 percentage point higher than that in 2014.”

Various scenarios for the national elections in Greece

A crucial point for Greece and Europe

by system failure

After the third vote in the Greek parliament for the presidential election (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/breaking-greece-towards-national.html), Greece walks towards national elections, as the government failed to collect the 180 MP votes required. In the next short period until the national elections day, we should expect an unprecedented propaganda war which will be launched by the global financial mafia mechanisms inside Greece and abroad.

All recent polls show that the Leftist party SYRIZA wins, for the moment, but it is rather doubtful whether will manage to take the required percentage to form an autonomous government.

Some possible scenarios follow briefly:

Scenario 1:

SYRIZA forms an autonomous government, or, a coalition with the help of the parties of the anti-austerity front. It will be the worse scenario for the global financial mafia as it could trigger an "uncontrolled" general rise of the Left in Europe. In this case, the banking-media dictatorship in Greece will declare war against the new government, try to destabilize it, and throw it from power as soon as possible.

Scenario 2:

SYRIZA will not gather the required percentage to form an autonomous government. As the options are limited in the political anti-austerity front, it may be forced to cooperate with the Socialists (PASOK), which may be presented with a more populist profile to persuade that they start to abandon neoliberal ideology, and the River party, which is clearly a creation of the media to attract voters from the Left. These systemic parties will try to control as much as possible the coalition so that some basic "achievements" of the Greek experiment will not be threatened. Subsequently, these parties may be used to destabilize the government by breaking the coalition.

Scenario 3:

Neither the neoliberal nor the anti-neoliberal front will be able to form government. In that case, the political dead end through repeated elections may give the suitable excuse to see a technocratic government by banking puppets, which will be presented as the only viable solution. This sub-experiment has already been tested in Greece and Italy through the banking puppets Papademos and Monti. This "solution"-parameter in the Greek experiment could be proved a dangerous threat to European parliamentary democracy, as may be used in other countries in times of political crises, becoming permanent practice and finally, establishing definitely the sovereignty of the plutocrats against the majority.

Scenario 4:

The unprecedented propaganda of destruction launched by the global financial mafia mechanisms inside Greece and abroad, during the short period until the elections in 25 January, manages to persuade a critical mass of the indecisive electorate to vote for "stability". Therefore, New Democracy takes the lead marginally and manages to form a new coalition government. Another alternative based on this scenario: http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/latest-from-greek-front-nightmare.html

This could be proved a real nightmare as the new neoliberal government will have now plenty of time to implement every aspect of the experiment in Greece, or even, try new sub-experiments under the orders of troika. This would mean that people are not willing to resist and the experiment may be expanded throughout Europe. It will probably mark the start of the new global Feudalism era.


ECB will be used as a tool to drive Europe into the desirable federalization with the characteristics of an empire (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/11/the-enee-sadism.html), rather than of a democratic federation. Scenario 3 will be probably the most suitable for the "emperor" Draghi to proceed towards this direction, as he has already the control inside eurozone through a decision taken more than two years ago: http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2012/09/lea-jacta-est-by-emperor-draghi.html

Especially in the case of scenario 1, the ECB will blackmail the government by threatening that will not purchase government bonds, therefore cut liquidity, in case that Greece choose a different path towards the reconstruction of the social state and labor rights, bringing minimum wage at pre-crisis levels, etc.

However, the system shows signs of panic, which means that the European officials don't know exactly how SYRIZA will react. In case that SYRIZA has a secret agenda, and be pressed by the lenders beyond red lines, it could nationalize the central bank and return to the national currency, blowing up eurozone. This could bring a disaster to the plutocrats' plans, as may trigger the domino of other Leftist European parties to follow SYRIZA's example and drive Europe towards the direction of the real democracy and unification under different terms for the benefit of the majority.

Everything will depend on whether people will choose to fight instead of surrender to the "empire".

Obama 'misinformed' about Russian economy

A political economist says US President Barack Obama is 'misinformed' about the state of the Russian economy, arguing that the country is not as dependent on oil and gas as the West claims.”

'The president of the United States is misinformed about the economy of Russia,' Jon Hellevig told Press TV from Moscow. 'The US president thinks that Russia doesn’t produce anything and it only lives off of oil and gas.'”

'It’s true that oil and gas are important, very important for the Russian economy and brings prosperity, but in 2013, oil and gas made up only 16 percent of the GDP,' he continued. 'So Russia has a lot of economic life beyond oil and gas.'”

'Of course, some people suffer from the devaluation (of the ruble), but for most people it’s neutral, and for many it’s very good, because with lower oil prices, you get the same money in ruble value in state budget, so Russia doesn’t have to cut its budget at all,' he contended.”

In an article recently published by Russia Insider, Hellevig called out the West’s false 'charade' regarding the Russian economy. He argued that far from relying on oil and gas, Moscow is engaged in big investments in all sectors of the economy, including aviation, shipbuilding, manufacturing and technology.”

Some Western concerns over the Russian-Argentinian approach

A fresh report indicates Britain’s concern about Russia’s 'increasing' military ties with Argentina in the southern Atlantic where the UK and the south American state are at loggerheads over Las Malvinas (aka the Falklands).”

The Russian deal will reportedly lease or lend twelve Sukhoi Su-24 all-weather attack aircraft to Argentina in the future. The jets will be able to do air patrols over the disputed islands.”

... Don DeBar, a New York-based Radio Host, believes London has to worry about Russia’s increasing influence in the Western hemisphere. 'Certainly, the idea of national sovereignty has been on the rise there for a very long time at an anti-colonial attitude. Those are prime conditions of course for reassertion of claim of Argentina to the Malvinas and Russia is perfectly poised to provide distance to the military position of the Argentina vis-à-vis the UK under the present condition. So that’s why they are concerned. They should be concerned.'”

Britain has some 1,500 troops permanently based on Malvinas, along with four RAF Typhoon jets, plus anti-aircraft and artillery batteries.”


A second consequence for the US deep state would be the loss of Europe in the new Cold War. Except from Britons, who have traditional deep ties and common interests with the US, the rest of Europe could slip to the Sino-Russian bloc which grows rapidly in the military and economic field and increasingly gaining independence from the Western economic system, attracting other countries too.

As BRICS are in the processes to decouple economies from the Western neoliberal monetary monopoly, they could bring back the gold standard as a base for their transactions, which is much more steady than the paper money unstable financial bubbles. They are ready, because they are emerging economies with billions of potencial consumer tanks and can attract other countries too being victims of the international financial mafia, like Argentina and Greece.

Greece towards national elections

Get ready for the propaganda war!

After the third vote in the Greek parliament for the presidential election (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/breaking-samaras-fail-to-gather-180-in.html), Greece walks towards national elections, as the government failed to collect the 180 MP votes required.

Final result: 168 voted for Stavros Dimas, 132 against.

In the next short period until the national elections day, we should expect an unprecedented propaganda war which will be launched by the global financial mafia mechanisms inside Greece and abroad, so that to prevent an autonomous Leftist government in Greece which could terminate the experiment and put in danger the plans of the plutocrats to expand it throughout Europe.

Update: 

The elections will be held on 25 January.



The interview of the Greek PM in NERIT and the journalistic deontology

The board of the Journalists' Union of Athens Daily Newspapers (ESIEA) watched speechless the way in which the, only by name, 'public' broadcaster NERIT presented the proclamation of the PM mr. A. Samaras, as 'interview'. The produced televised result offends the journalistic deontology.”

NERIT's picture yesterday, unfortunately confirms for one more time the right and stable decision by ESIEA, not to recognize the DT/NERIT construct.”

The board of ESIEA in front of the crucial political developments for the country, repeats that the journalists are obliged to function as journalists above all, and defend the journalistic deontology, staying away from parties' games.”

Latest from the Greek front : A nightmare scenario for Greece and Europe

globinfo freexchange

There are many scenarios circulated lately, concerning the political situation in Greece. Here is another "extreme conspiracy scenario", briefly:

Samaras will not manage to find the 180 MPs required for the third round of the presidential election (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/a-first-win-against-global-financial.html), and the pre-elections period starts in Greece. In the leading government coalition party, New Democracy, many question Samaras, force him to resign and throw him from the leadership of the party to elect Dora Bakoyannis* for the leadership of New Democracy. She appears with a much more populist profile and declares that she will not follow Samaras' policy while will negotiate hard with the troika lenders.

Combined with the classic propaganda of destruction which will be launched to the maximum point by the known centers inside Greece and abroad, that is, the country will suffer from total destruction in case of a Leftist government in power, New Democracy manage to win again marginally in the new national elections.

The neo-nazi party, Golden Dawn, having retained or increased its power due to its stance not to vote for Dimas, finally participates in a government by the New Democracy which, additionally, retains the advantage of the 50 bonus seats**. Golden Dawn will have the necessary alibi since "traitor" Samaras is no longer in the leadership, stating that it is obliged to support New Democracy (which has many MPs from the far-Right political spectrum), in order to protect the country from the Leftist "threat" and total destruction.

Still, however, this is not enough for New Democracy to form a new government, therefore, other neoliberal systemic parties like River and PASOK (or others), will rush to contribute “for the sake of the country”. The neoliberal dictatorship has now all the time to implement the last stage of the experiment, to be expanded throughout Europe.

Meanwhile, the Greek PM during his speech on Saturday at the governmental propaganda tool, NERIT, gave the signal for a new round of the propaganda of fear. (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-12-27/greek-prime-minister-its-best-country-do-away-democracy) During previous speech “Samaras said characteristically that 'We shed blood to take the word `Grexit' away from the mouth of foreigners, and Syriza is bringing this word back to their mouths,'.” (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/europe-get-ready-for-war.html)

* Dora Bakoyannis is the daughter of Constantine Mitsotakis, one of the oldest members of New Democracy. In Greece, his conflict with current PM, Antonis Samaras, is well known, as Samaras was the cause of the fall of New Democracy from power, back when Mitsotakis was the Greek PM:

"The heightened public irritation over the Macedonia issue caused several ND parliament members, led by Antonis Samaras, to withdraw their support from Mitsotakis's government and form a new political party, Political Spring (Politiki Anoiksi). Mitsotakis's government had already restored the election system back to its original form, which allowed Papandreou's PASOK to obtain clear parliamentary majority after winning the premature 1993 elections and return to office. Mitsotakis then resigned as ND leader, although he remained the party's honorary chairman." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konstantinos_Mitsotakis)

**... 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!” (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/09/a-new-attempt-to-domesticate-left-in.html)

Something starts to change in America?

From Washington Post:

Last week, in a coffeehouse in downtown Des Moines, a group of progressive activists launched an effort that they hope will change the 2016 presidential campaign and in the process upend the Democratic Party.”

The gathering in Iowa, organized by MoveOn.org and backed by Democracy for America, was the opening of a grass-roots push to draft Sen. Elizabeth Warren to run for president. Its broader effect was to escalate the debate among Democrats about the party’s values, its message, its real constituencies and, most of all, how it can win elections in the post-Obama era.”

What is in question is the degree to which the rising populist movement on the left can materially shape the party’s future. More specifically, absent some sign from Warren that she is going to run, can these Democrats successfully pressure Hillary Rodham Clinton, the party’s dominant prospective presidential candidate, to adopt much of their agenda?”

Anna Galland, executive director of MoveOn.Org Civic Action, said there are important policy differences that need to be aired before Democrats pick their 2016 nominee.”

Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware, who comes out of the centrist Democratic tradition, said he believes the party has tipped in favor of Warren’s anti-Wall Street, populist message. 'I don’t think there’s any question,' he said of a shift that he finds worrisome for the party’s future hopes of winning over independents and swing voters.”

Jim Dean, who heads Democracy for America, said that until recently, the party had 'regressed' on the relationship between business and government. 'With the ascendance of Elizabeth Warren and the way she has built power for herself, we are seeing a lot of movement for the party to get back to its core values,' he said.”

Tad Devine, a strategist who played key roles in several past Democratic presidential campaigns, sees far greater potential for a populist uprising to galvanize the political dialogue. Arguing that the sense of economic discontent is widespread and that the hunger for a sharper populist agenda is genuine, he said, 'If somebody gets up and delivers it with credibility, it’s going to resonate very powerfully in a way that’s not indicative of the party divisions today.'”

Clinton became a more populist candidate in 2008 after losing a string of contests to Obama and demonstrated her appeal to white, working-class voters. In preparation for a possible 2016 campaign, she has already invoked income inequality as a problem that must be addressed. But her rhetoric, except for what she later said was a mangled comment attacking businesses, does not have the edginess of Warren’s. How strong that message will be if she faces only limited competition for the nomination is what worries liberal activists — which is why they are hoping to entice Warren to run or help elevate her standing even higher. How much strength there is in the progressive movement, and how Clinton weighs its significance, will not be known until she makes her expected announcement of candidacy.”


All these scenarios, however, could also make neocons even more anxious to impose their lunatic plans to provoke a general conflict with Russia as the only alternative against the dramatic shift of the global geopolitical balance, unless we see a fast creation of a corresponding political power in the US inspired by the European Left. It would be even better if such a power could rise from the movements in the streets (Occupy movement, etc.), like Podemos in Spain.

US foreign policy disasters and the impacts from sanctions on Russia


An Incomplete History of US Foreign Policy Disasters

  • War reparations imposed by the allies gave way to German hyperinflation and the rise of Hitler.
  • In 1953 the US and UK orchestrated the Iranian coup d'état in an operation called "Operation Boot" in the UK and the "TPAJAX Project" in the US. This in turn led to the US backed Shah of Iran overthrown in 1979. In August 2013, 60 years after, the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) admitted that it was involved in both the planning and the execution of the coup, including the bribing of Iranian politicians, security and army high-ranking officials, as well as pro-coup propaganda. The CIA is quoted acknowledging the coup was carried out "under CIA direction" and "as an act of U.S. foreign policy, conceived and approved at the highest levels of government."
  • The War in Vietnam started with an outright lie from president Lyndon B. Johnson regarding the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. A document declassified in 2005 shows the US fired first, on North Vietnam. In a second episode, the US fired on "Tonkin ghosts" (false radar images) and not actual torpedo boats as claimed.
  • It's pretty clear the US helped foment the overthrow of Ukraine's president Viktor Yanukovych, but the US will probably will not admit that for another 30 years.
  • Bush's lies led us to invade Iraq with disastrous consequences including the evolution of ISIS.
  • Finally, Bin Laden's number one reason for the attack on the US was because the US had troops on sacred Arab soil.

The very best the US can expect out of sanctions on Russia are as follows:

    • Deeper European recession
    • Political battles with various European leaders
    • Loss of potential profit by US multinational corporations
    • Ukraine in need of bigger bailouts
    • Russia strengthens ties with China at expense of US and Europe
    • Increasing resentment of Russian citizens toward the US, some of which may take hostile actions against the US, US citizens, or US corporate interests

Unfortunately, that is the very best that can happen! Laughably, president Obama calls that 'winning' on the basis Russia is suffering more than Europe. With that ridiculous definition, let's return to the questions I asked at the outset: Does one measure pain in a one-sided manner? If Russia loses a leg and Europe an arm, is that winning or is it just plain stupid? It's difficult to contemplate the worst that could happen, but David Lifschultz mentioned one possibility in his letter to various CEOs: The wrong reaction could 'trigger implosions in the quadrillion of derivatives'.

Neocons have ridiculously failed one more time. After the mess they brought in Iraq, they had this “brilliant idea” to support these militant groups so that to bring down Assad regime, which is attached to Russia, and probably destabilize Iran too. Now they are closing fronts and call everyone to destroy ISIS.

Το πιο εφιαλτικό σενάριο

globinfo freexchange

Πολλά είναι τα σενάρια που κυκλοφορούν τον τελευταίο καιρό, όσον αφορά τις πολιτικές εξελίξεις στην Ελλάδα. Ιδού άλλο ένα "ακραίο σενάριο συνωμοσίας" εν συντομία:

Ο Σαμαράς δεν μαζεύει τους 180 για να εκλέξει τον Δήμα και αρχίζει η προεκλογική περίοδος. Τίθεται θέμα ηγεσίας στη ΝΔ και αναλαμβάνει η Ντόρα. Με ένα φιλολαϊκό προφίλ εξαγγέλλει ότι δεν θα ακολουθήσει την πολιτική Σαμαρά και θα διαπραγματευτεί σκληρά με τους δανειστές.

Σε συνδυασμό με την κλασική προπαγάνδα της καταστροφής που θα εξαπολυθεί σε μέγιστο βαθμό από τα γνωστά κέντρα εντός και εκτός Ελλάδας, ότι δηλαδή η χώρα θα υποστεί την απόλυτη καταστροφή σε περίπτωση μιας κυβέρνησης της Αριστεράς, η ΝΔ καταφέρνει οριακά να πάρει κεφάλι στις εκλογές.

Η Χρυσή Αυγή, διατηρώντας ή αυξάνοντας τα ποσοστά της, λόγω της στάσης της όσον αφορά την εκλογή Δήμα, αφού προηγουμένως έχει υποστεί το απαραίτητο "ρετουσάρισμα" (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2013/10/blog-post.html), συμμετέχει τελικά σε κυβέρνηση που θα προσπαθήσει να σχηματίσει η ΝΔ η οποία διατηρεί και το πλεονέκτημα που της δίνει το μπόνους των 50 εδρών. Η Χρυσή Αυγή θα έχει και το απαραίτητο άλλοθι με την αλλαγή ηγεσίας στη ΝΔ, υποστηρίζοντας ότι στηρίζει τη ΝΔ για να μην καταρρεύσει η πατρίδα τώρα που έφυγε ο "προδότης" Σαμαράς. Επανέρχεται έτσι η πιθανότητα κυβέρνησης ΝΔ-ΧΑ. (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/04/blog-post_3.html)

Τα κουκιά όμως ακόμα δεν βγαίνουν, οπότε σπεύδουν να στηρίξουν την νέα κυβερνητική συμμαχία τα συστημικά νεοφιλελεύθερα κόμματα Ποτάμι και ΠΑΣΟΚ (ή όποιοι άλλοι καλοθελητές) σαν καλά παιδιά "για το καλό της πατρίδος". Η νεοφιλελεύθερη δικτατορία έχει τώρα όλο το χρόνο να ολοκληρώσει το τελευταίο στάδιο του πειράματος στην Ελλάδα και να το επεκτείνει σε όλη την Ευρώπη.

A system in absolute panic

by system failure

For one more time, the Greek government has failed to stay calm. After the new bribery scandal (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/greece-another-opposition-mp-claimed.html), government officials rushed to claim that the whole case has been "set up". The Greek PM, through an unprecedented action, stated that he will sue opposition MP Chaikalis! Now, guess how justice representatives responded to the governmental sirens: They rushed to close the case! (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/the-greek-justice-rushed-to-close.html) Apparently, the systemic establishment is under absolute panic.

It's not the first time that the government failed to remain calm: “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, 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.” (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/09/a-new-attempt-to-domesticate-left-in.html)

The new statements and movements by governmental executives come in full contradiction with their hypocritical motivations that anyone who has something to denounce should do it through the Greek justice. These motivations were coming through cliches like "everything in the light", etc.

The government officials supported by various systemic-friendly trolls that launched the usual propaganda on the internet, should explain why they rushed to speak about "set up" concerning the latest bribery case, before justice's final decision, when in other cases they were avoiding to make any statement apart from declaring that only justice should decide.

According to some information, the government is ready to use the tactics of "artificial destruction" (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/01/the-tactics-of-artificial-destruction.html) with the help of the well-known power centers of ENEE.

According to an article at the thepressproject.gr website, there is some recent information that the government prepares an operation to withdraw deposits equal to 11 billion euros from the Hellenic Financial Stability Fund, which are bonds in electronic form, directly liquidated if necessary. Alexis Tsipras declared, according to SYRIZA's program, that he will use this amount to relief the most vulnerable who were heavily hit by the catastrophic neoliberal measures imposed by the present government. According to the same article, there is also some information about a huge operation by the German media for the detraction of SYRIZA during the next days. (http://www.thepressproject.gr/article/70578) We should assume that the propaganda by a significant part of the global mainstream media controlled by the global financial mafia will peak in case that Greece will go for national elections.

Also, the new record of 103 (!) tabling amendments passed in the parliament during the discussion of the bill Ministry of Health, which was passed by the majority just before midnight Monday, December 22, is quite characteristic. (http://www.gazzetta.gr/plus/article/683849/voyli-rekor-oi-103-tropologies-me-ena-nomoshedio)

All these facts do not only indicate the absolute panic of the Greek political class, but also that the - controlled by the big capital - decision centers, inside and outside Greece, didn't manage to "domesticate" the Left yet, as they did with Social Democrats two to three decades ago.

Whether the Left will manage to stay on its feet from the war against it, without becoming simply a "short history" or being "transformed", as many plan and wish, will be seen in practice. This will depend to a high degree on the determination of people not only in Greece, but also in Europe.

Η δημοκρατία δεν έχει άλλα έξοδα

του Άρη Χατζηστεφάνου

Ας υποθέσουμε ότι υπήρχε μια χώρα με αστική κοινοβουλευτική δημοκρατία στην οποία το πολιτικό και οικονομικό κατεστημένο έπρεπε να δωροδοκήσει μερικές δεκάδες βουλευτές για να παραμείνει στην εξουσία.

Ας υποθέσουμε επίσης ότι κάθε βουλευτής χρειάζεται από δυο έως τρία εκατομμύρια ευρώ για να αλλάξει την ψήφο του και λείπουν 12 βουλευτές για μια κρίσιμη ψηφοφορία. Απαιτούνται δηλαδή τουλάχιστον 36 εκατομμύρια ευρώ – πέρα αυτών που δόθηκαν για να φτάσουμε ως εκεί.

Δυστυχώς εάν υπήρχε διαρροή αυτής της πληροφορίας οι τιμές θα ανέβαιναν ενώ αρκετοί ακόμη βουλευτές που αρχικά στήριζαν την κυβέρνηση θα ζητούσαν και αυτοί αύξηση των αποδοχών τους, υπουργοποιήσεις κτλ.

Φυσικά σε μια τέτοια χώρα θα απαιτούνταν και ένας τεράστιος μηχανισμός προπαγάνδας για να συγκαλύπτει το μηχανισμό εξαγοράς βουλευτών. Οι μεγαλοδημοσιογράφοι των κυρίαρχων μέσων ενημέρωσης μαζί με τους αρχισυντάκτες και τους διευθυντές σταθμών θα ζητούσαν τρομακτικές αυξήσεις μισθών, ειδικά αν υπήρχε το ενδεχόμενο πρόωρων εκλογών.

Αν υπολογίσεις πέντε μεγάλους σταθμούς και άλλες τόσες εφημερίδες, με τους μισθούς ανώτατων στελεχών να ξεπερνούν τα δέκα χιλιάδες ευρώ το μήνα, το κόστος αυξάνεται σημαντικά.

Τα χρήματα αυτών των δημοσιογράφων πληρώνονται φυσικά από μεγάλες τράπεζες είτε μέσω διαφημίσεων είτε με χαμηλότοκα δάνεια. Αν λόγου χάρη ένας σταθμός ζητούσε 95 εκατομμύρια ευρώ πριν από την ψηφοφορία εύκολα μπορούμε να υποθέσουμε τι «έξοδα» θα είχε σε προεκλογική περίοδο.

Οι τράπεζες με τη σειρά τους για να βρουν τα χρήματα με τα οποία θα πληρωθούν δημοσιογράφοι και βουλευτές θα απαιτούσαν νέα στήριξη από την κυβέρνηση, με κούρεμα των χρεών τους, ευνοϊκές ρυθμίσεις κ.ο.κ

Δεδομένου όμως ότι στις δημοκρατίες ο χρηματισμός είναι παράνομος, στην υποθετική εκείνη χώρα, κάποιος θα έπρεπε να εξασφαλίσει και την στήριξη της δικαστικής εξουσίας. Άλλα έξοδα.

Η αστική δημοκρατία βλέπετε είναι ένα πολύ ακριβό χόμπι. Γι’ αυτό άλλωστε εφαρμόζεται συνήθως σε περιόδους υψηλής κερδοφορίας του συστήματος (π.χ ύστερα από μεγάλες πολεμικές αναμετρήσεις, όταν απαιτείται ανοικοδόμηση ολόκληρων χωρών) ενώ εγκαταλείπεται ή περιορίζεται αισθητά σε περιόδους οικονομικής κρίσης.

Φυσικά και οι δικτατορίες έχουν τα δικά τους έξοδα. Πρέπει λόγου χάρη να διατηρείς σταθερά ή να αυξάνεις τα εισοδήματα των δυνάμεων καταστολής και του στρατού, να αγοράζεις συνεχώς νέο εξοπλισμό (π.χ drones που θα περιπολούν σε αστικά κέντρα, αύρες νερού, δακρυγόνα κ.ο.κ.).

Το πρόβλημα με την υποθετική χώρα της ιστορίας μας είναι ότι ενώ βρίσκεται σε οικονομική κρίση διατηρεί ένα πολιτικό σύστημα που δημιουργήθηκε σε συνθήκες σχετικής ευημερίας. Πληρώνει μάλιστα ταυτόχρονα το πολιτικό και το μιντιακό προσωπικό – όπως απαιτείται σε μια αστική δημοκρατία – αλλά και τις αρχές ασφαλείας, όπως συμβαίνει σε μια δικτατορία.

Σε μια τέτοια χώρα μπορείς να δώσεις μια και μόνο συμβουλή: Παιδιά, ένα καθαρό πραξικόπημα θα σας έβγαινε πολύ φτηνότερο.

Why China supports Russia

China's top diplomat is offering Beijing's assistance to Moscow, as pessimism is spreading about the uncertainties of the Russian economy. With the Kremlin vowing to address Russia's dependence on oil and gas, more teamwork with China in non-energy sectors may help, but the key 'lies in the hands of Moscow itself', analysts said.”

Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters on Saturday that 'Russia has the capability and the wisdom to overcome the existing hardship in the economic situation. If the Russian side needs, we will provide necessary assistance within our capacity,' Wang said. Wang said China and Russia have been consistently supporting and helping each other.”

Zhang Deguang, a former Chinese ambassador to Russia, said Moscow has foreign currency reserves totaling hundreds of billions of dollars, and with such support the Russian economy 'is still far away from being totally paralyzed'.”

Li Jianmin, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, suggested that China's assistance be provided through mechanisms including the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation and BRICS. Earlier this month, when Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev met in Astana, Kazakhstan, with Premier Li Keqiang, they agreed on enhancing cooperation in railways, infrastructure and the development of Russia's Far East region. Loans, cooperation in major projects and participation in the domestic infrastructure investment in Russia are options on the table, Li added.”

Qin Gang, the Foreign Ministry spokesman, told a news conference in Beijing on Thursday, 'Please do not forget that China and Russia are highly complementary in the economic field, with broad areas and huge potential for cooperation.'"


Putin clearly seeks a restructure for the economy, in order to develop further various sectors and relief the weight from the oil-gas sector which makes Russia more vulnerable in geopolitical-financial games. [...] Putin will seek further cooperation with China and India, as being fast developing countries with increasing energy needs. As he knows that the restructure of the economy will take time, Russia could turn to these markets to sell huge amounts of energy resources. Russia has a big advantage here due to its geographic position and its participation in the BRICS. Actually, Putin wants to signal that Russia is able to retain its social state through its reserves and through new energy markets until the crisis is over and the restructure of the economy completed.


As the US seek to isolate China, it seems that the Chinese are turning to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), seeking to shield their inner security. The US moves in Asian Pasific, show the ultimate target. It appears that the SCO formation in 2001 was another tactical win by the Sino-Russian block, against the - occupied with the war on terrorism - West, to be used against future plans by the global neoliberal dictatorship, which would probably include the dissolution of the vast Russian territory and the dangerous isolation of China by land and sea.

Greece: Samaras fail to gather 180 in the second vote

The second round of voting concluded with a negative result on the election of a new Greek President by the Greek Parliament a few minutes earlier. The only candidate nominated by the coalition government partners, New Democracy and PASOK, and Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’ favorite, is the former Foreign Minister of the Papademos administration, and former EU commissioner, Stavros Dimas.”

“‘Yes’ to Dimas’ election voted a total of 168 MPs, while 131 blank votes opposed the election. One MP was not present during the vote.”

With 168 votes in the second round, the Greek coalition government is seeking at least 12 additional MPs willing to vote for Dimas in order for the country not to be driven to snap general elections. The Greek Constitution states that if a President is not elected, the country must hold general elections within a month.”

The whole story and what's at stake:


The government gathered 8 more votes in the middle of the latest bribery big scandal: (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/the-greek-justice-rushed-to-close.html)

Two former members of the neo-nazi party Golden Dawn, Stathis Boukouras and Hrisovalantis Alexopoulos, voted for Dimas this time! The regime uses all means to stay in power and avoid early elections.

Some independent MPs in the Greek parliament declared that the election of the President of Greece in February 2015 is a different case and left an open door to approach government until then, having in mind, of course, to request for some "rewards".

It has started: The brand new market in China for Western monopolies!

globinfo freexchange

It seems that everything goes according to the plan. Western multinational monopolies could benefit even more through at least two ways. Less competition in the production sector and a new huge tank of consumers which is about to emerge:

China is poised to become a net capital exporter for the first time, with total overseas direct investment exceeding foreign direct investment by the end of the year, said Zeng Peiyan, chairman of the China Center for International Economic Exchanges, at a forum on Sunday.”

'China is transforming from a major commodity exporter to a capital exporter,' Zeng said. 'The large going-out of Chinese capital means the country is able to participate in the restructuring of global industrial, supply and value chains, which are the keys to foster new competitive advantages,' he said.”

The middle-income group will be the main force to stabilize domestic demand, he said. 'As the group is expanding, 600 million people will be middle-income by 2020. Total consumption is expected to be tripled by then compared with that in 2010.'

Since the United States Federal Reserve announced the end of its quantitative easing policy, the euro has fallen 10 percent against the US dollar and the Japanese yen has weakened by 11 percent. The Russian rouble has fallen about 45 percent against the dollar this year and suffered a dramatic slide early last week.”

The combination of a gradual improvement in global demand, a relatively sluggish domestic economy and declining global commodity prices has largely widened China's current account surplus, which has put additional upward pressure on the currency since June.”


The plan:

The big question is: If all the production will be automatized (even the services sector), who will consume the products? Are we going to a model that most of the people will be receiving unemployment benefits just to survive and consume? In overpopulated developing countries there are huge potential consumer tanks. Their consuming power will rise and the complete automatization of the production there will take decades. However, the suitable conditions should be created first, in the aged and saturated West, in order a limit in wages to be established and the expansion of the Western social state model to be prevented because all these things mean an additional cost for the global economic oligarchy:


And the battle:

Although Western monopolies may benefit from this transformation of the Chinese economy, the Chinese capital will be probably directed to emerging economies and small-medium businesses, or even countries that currently clearly belong to the Western sphere of influence, but face huge problems due to the neoliberal doctrine and desperately need new investments. The Cold War 2.0 in the economic field.

What we see now, is a cruel battle with time. On the one hand, Russia and China, together with the rest of the BRICS, are trying to get rid of the dollar and form their own currency system to gain complete independence, on the other, the neocon banking-corporate puppets in the US are in panic and seek desperately a pretext to come to war with Russia and put an end to this threat for their plans. This explains their agony to drag Russia into a warm conflict.
