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)

  1. I think the left will win in Greece - and may be Greece will leave EU as the first country.

    1. Not at all. The Social Democrats (PASOK party in Greece) are just as neoliberal as the others.

    2. If Syriza choose to remain in the E.U and Eurozone then they are neo-liberal.

  3. Thanks, this needs to be written. My fear is around To Potami which I am afraid was conjured up to replace PASOK if need be.

    1. Yes. Potami is clearly a creation by the banking-media dictatorship to attract voters from the Left and prevent an autonomous Leftist government.

      Delete
  4. I add:
    On the face of it GD will not join Dora, a moderate' pro-EU / EZ neo-liberal since they are anti EU, anti euro. Samaras was their man, and he was forced to ditch them by the US / AIPAC.
    The burning question is who would join a SYRIZA coalition government?

August 12, 2020: The day capitalism officially died and replaced by something even worse

globinfo freexchange   It was the 12th of August, 2020. Nine o'clock in the morning, in London, the news came out that the national income of Britain (GDP) had fallen by more than 20% . That had never happened before in the history of capitalism - British GDP falling by 21% or so in one year. It was not anticipated. The markets were expecting a fall of 8,9,10%. No one was expecting a 21% fall. Fifteen or sixteen minutes later, the London stock exchange went up by 3% . There can be no explanation of that along the lines of capitalism.     This is how the Greek economist, Yanis Varoufakis, described essentially the official death of capitalism and its replacement by something even worse. The thing he calls "technofeudalism". While Varoufakis in various discussions struggles to explain why capitalism is already dead, it's rather funny that people still willing to debate on something that's already dead (capitalism) against something that's far from being practi

US Gov discussed killing Assange & possibly Ellsberg

Katie Halper  Daniel Ellsberg and Julian Assange have a lot in common and Daniel Ellsberg is the first one to point this out. Daniel goes over how they both exposed state secrets, how the government attempted to use the Espionage Act against them, spied on them and while we know for certain that the CIA discussed killing Assange, the US Government may have discussed killing Ellsberg when they said they'd "incapacitate," him.

Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald & Chris Hedges on NSA leaks, Assange & protecting a Free Internet

Democracy Now!   NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Glenn Greenwald and Chris Hedges discuss mass surveillance, government secrecy, Internet freedom and U.S. attempts to extradite and prosecute Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. They spoke together on a panel moderated by Amy Goodman at the virtual War on Terror film festival after a screening of "Citizenfour" — the Oscar-winning documentary about Snowden by Laura Poitras.  

Evidence that the US imperialists were pre-planning to arm and train the neo-nazis in Ukraine

globinfo freexchange   There is plenty of evidence that the Western imperialists and their European allies supported neo-nazi groups in Ukraine during the 2014 "Maidan revolution", which led to the ousting of elected President Viktor Yanukovych, and the overthrow of the Ukrainian government.   Protests originally erupted in November 2013 after President Yanukovych refused to sign a political association and free trade agreement with the European Union at a meeting of the Eastern Partnership in Vilnius, Lithuania, choosing closer ties with Russia instead.  The support of Ukrainian neo-nazis by the US imperialists continued further during the Obama term. For example, as the World Socialist Web Site reported on early 2016:   The 2016 Consolidated Appropriations Act, signed into law by US President Barack Obama late last year, did not include a previously expected ban against the funding of the Azov Regiment, a military organization that originated as a volunteer militia

Αλλά το ΚΙΝΑΛ γενικά είναι του χεριού τους.   Απ'ότι φαίνεται και τα δυο αυτά χαρτιά κάηκαν γρήγορα, αφού ο μεν Λοβέρδος δεν μπόρεσε να κρύψει τη δίψα του για σφιχτό εναγκαλισμό με την χειρότερη δεξιά που κυβέρνησε στη μεταπολίτευση.

Confirmed: Unpopular US President Kamala Harris is the most faithful puppet of the corporate oligarchy

globinfo freexchange     A recent article published on Bloomberg exposes impressively two things:    First, that the Democrats have no intention to even slightly move from their pro-corporate positions and towards the interests of the US working class; on the contrary.   Second, the elites essentially replaced Joe Biden with Kamala Harris.    The article was re-published by various websites and the surprises already start from the title: Harris quietly taps Wall Street, tech CEOs for advice on policy . Not that it is something we didn't expect, but why a top establishment outlet admits that Harris "quietly" runs to the banking-corporate oligarchy for "instructions"?  Perhaps more surprisingly, the answer can be found within the article itself:   The corporate world has provided a familiar source of help. As California's attorney general, Harris gained a reputation for frequently partnering with technology companies — rather than prosecuting them — as

It's getting worse: Mitsotakis regime targets top investigative journalists in Greece

globinfo freexchange   In November of the previous year we watched Mitsotakis regime in Greece taking steps to suppress further press freedom in the country, through some proposed amendments to Article 191 of the Criminal Code. The International Press Institute then concluded that " Rather than improving the existing Article 191 of the Criminal Code, which is already problematic, the government of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis would take a major step backwards if this law were eventually passed and send a worrying signal about the administration’s commitment to media freedom. " It seems that the regime is using now these changes (introduced on the pretext of "dangerous" misinformation related to COVID-19 pandemic and other issues) to go after top investigative journalists, who, were investigating big corruption scandals. Recently, investigative journalist Gianna Papadakou, was targeted for exposing officials believed to have received bribes from the Swiss pha

Day 1000: Julian Assange still in prison and under slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist criminals

failed evolution   World's number one political prisoner, Julian Assange, still in high security prison for exposing 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 nearly three in the high security Belmarsh prison, were accompanied with a lack of sunlight and exercise and unrelenting threats, pressure, anxiety and stress.    His steady physical and psychological deterioration has led to hallucinations and depression. He takes antidepressant medication and the antipsych

[Petition] Tony Blair to have his "Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter" rescinded

Tony Blair is to be knighted with the highest possible ranking in the new year honours list, Buckingham Palace has said. Sir Tony, who held the keys to No 10 between 1997 and 2007, will be appointed a Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, the oldest and most senior British Order of Chivalry. Tony Blair caused irreparable damage to both the constitution of the United Kingdom and to the very fabric of the nation's society. He was personally responsible for causing the death of countless innocent, civilian lives and servicement in various conflicts. For this alone he should be held accountable for war crimes.  Tony Blair is the least deserving person of any public honour, particularly anything awarded by Her Majesty the Queen. We petition the Prime Minister to petition Her Majesty to have this honour removed.   Sign here: https://www.change.org/p/the-prime-minister-tony-blair-to-have-his-knight-companion-of-the-most-noble-order-of-the-garter-rescinded
