Official: Tsipras exposes Euro-banking mafia and its puppets

globinfo freexchange

The Greek PM, Alexis Tsipras, made some significant revelations during yesterday's interview to the journalist, Nikos Chatzinikolaou. Revelations that someone could not expect from previous Greek Prime Ministers.

The first revelation confirms the dirty role of the ECB as a liquidity asphyxiation tool for the eurozone members who refuse to apply the neoliberal agenda and take harder austerity measures.

As Alexis Tsipras said: “... on the 18th of February the European Central Bank made a decision that from a political point of view is not a regular or a rational one. So they limited the capacity and the possibility on behalf of the Greek state to issue and re-buy Greek bonds. So there was a capping as regards the treasury bonds, so at EUR9 billion, whereas the normal capping stands at EUR15 billion. So in this way they excluded the possibility of the bank to finance, to re-finance the Greek government, the Greek sovereign debt, by EUR6 billion.” (http://goo.gl/DsFtRf)

Therefore, this is actually an official confirmation of the role of ECB, which has been described by this blog back in 2012, when the unlimited purchase of government bonds in eurozone has been decided: “... the ECB becomes a corresponding Fed in the European area, 'serving' the problematic economies that are excluded from the bond markets, through the print of new money. Therefore, the problematic economies will be loaded with more and more debt which the ECB, i.e. the largest private European banks will hold. [...] States that are excluded from markets, are now trapped within the neoliberal economic empire of the eurozone and will be forced to follow new austerity measures every time they need ECB to buy their bonds.” (http://bit.ly/1aFXdxF)

Obviously, Draghi fired the first warning shots, reducing liquidity flow, in order to force the Greek government to retreat on troika lenders' demands.

At the same time, the whole structure of the mechanism is revealed, through which the European economic oligarchy attempts to accelerate the desirable federalization, which leads to the new Feudalism. On the top of this mechanism, we find the powerful banking lobby, using the power of money which completely controls inside the eurozone through the ECB.

There was a specific plan for the experiment in Greece which was interrupted by the 25th of January national elections through which the new coalition SYRIZA-Independent Greeks took the power. As long as the puppets of previous governments were following faithfully troika's orders, there was absolutely no problem with liquidity. According to the schedule, Samaras would finish his term normally in 2016, so that the last steps of the experiment should be taken: sell off public property, complete dissolution of labor rights, minimum wage at 300 euros, further cuts in wages-pensions. All these for the benefit of the big companies that follow the banks in the hierarchy of this mechanism.

Consequently, the experiment would have been transferred to Italy-Spain, through the skyrocketing of spreads and exclusion from the markets, so that to fall to the ECB trap and follow Greece's path. However, the interruption of the Greek experiment forced the bankers to loose the rope around the rest of the eurozone periphery in order to present a false success story (like Samaras did with the help of Berlin) and increase the pressure on the new Greek government, pointing the finger at Tsipras administration, as being eurozone's "black sheep". All these, of course, with the help of the propaganda war by the Greek and international media establishment, which is completely controlled by the banks and the big corporations.

The ultimate target, is the complete isolation of Greece until the fall of Tsipras administration and its substitution by other willing puppets in power to finish the experiment. Alternatively, the lenders will try to form a more friendly coalition (http://bit.ly/1b3qtqK) which in the end will be forced to follow their orders.

At this point, Tsipras' answer to a relative question by Chatzinikolaou was very clear, showing that Tsipras knows the game very well. He excluded new elections in order to form a more "solid" parliamentary team, as Chatzinikolaou proposed. He stated that pluralism is an advantage for SYRIZA, implying that its most radical part is the one that brings pressure to the lenders and retains the red lines according to the latest vote of the Greek people.

The other significant revelation by Tsipras was the verbal commitment he received by the lenders to withdraw ECB's decision of 18th February. A commitment which they didn't follow eventually: “... in a contact that I had with Mr. Daisebloom and Mr. Varoufakis, when present before the Eurogroup, raised the issue. And there was a commitment that, upon the agreement, the European Central Bank decisions were about to be corrected. Our mistake is that we were based, that we accepted a verbal commitment instead of a written commitment. And in the frame of this agreement we were asking for an extension, not of the Memorandum, but of the loan contract, explaining the grounds on which we were asking for this extension. And there was an explicit ground. So we were asking for this extension in order to have the reintroduction of the waiver by the European Central Bank, but also in order to rectify this threshold, this cap as regards T-bills. So indeed the Greek government felt that there were good intentions behind this verbal commitment. And we also believed that this agreement of the 20th of February was about to be implemented in its entirety.” (http://goo.gl/DsFtRf)

It is not the first time that the euro-puppets play dirty games and try to destroy any attempt for an agreement (http://bit.ly/17eGveR). Certainly, this is another reason for which they don't want a clean and decent negotiator like Varoufakis, because they know that he will not hesitate to expose them.

As long as plutocrats see that this government in Greece enjoys a constant support by the people, they will escalating attacks, trying to isolate and punish Greece to make an example. However, their position is difficult too. The coherence of their financial empire is in danger. There is an increasing skepticism by many countries in Europe concerning the path that it takes, as they see how it treats Greece.

How a group of economists undermined public institutions, paving the way to neoliberalism

An assumption had become a truth. The self-interested model of human behaviour, that had been developed in the Cold War to make the mathematical equations work, had now been adopted by these economists as a fundamental truth about the reality of all human social interaction.
globinfo freexchange
A group of economists in the early 70s arbitrarily adopted the self-interested model of human behaviour that had been developed in the Cold War, to explain the dysfunctionality of public institutions. This perception would become a powerful tool in the hands of the neoliberal ideology, carried by big banks and corporations, to demonize the state and dismantle any state control upon them at the expense of the societies.
In his documentary The Trap, Adam Curtis explains:
In the early 70s, the government bureaucracies in Britain began to collapse. Those around them blamed a growing economic crisis, but it was clear that something much more fundamental had gone wrong. What were supposed to be institut…

Italy, Greece, Deutsche Bank: heavy clouds of non-linear collapse gather again above Europe

globinfo freexchange
For nearly ten years now, the key decision centers inside eurozone are trying to hide the huge problems, pretending that the crisis is behind, in order to maintain a completely failed economic model, which also reveals, day by day, its authoritarian nature and despise against real Democracy. The totally problematic structure of eurozone makes things even worse.
In Italy, we had another political crisis and a constitutional coup because the new majority and potential coalition government is not likeable to the Brussels/Berlin axis.
In Greece, things are not looking better. The country is about to exit the IMF-type neoliberal program imposed by the Troika (ECB, European Commission, IMF), in August. Yet, the economy is still in very bad shape, drowning in stagnation, with unprecedented unemployment, nearly zero growth and a national debt at 180% of GDP, which is actually much higher than Greece's debt in 2010 (120% of GDP) when crisis hit the country!
In fact, the eu…

WikiLeaks reveals Italian officials had serious concerns about Italy's ability to participate in the monetary union already since the late 70s

The WIKILEAKS Public Library of US Diplomacy (PlusD)holds the world's largest searchable collection of United States confidential, or formerly confidential, diplomatic communications. As of April 8, 2013 it holds 2 million records comprising approximately 1 billion words. The collection covers US involvements in, and diplomatic or intelligence reporting on, every country on earth. It is the single most significant body of geopolitical material ever published. The PlusD collection, built and curated by WikiLeaks, is updated from a variety of sources, including leaks, documents released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and documents released by the US State Department systematic declassification review.

How eurozone became a financial dictatorship

It all started with the silent coup against Ireland
globinfo freexchange
In 2010, Ireland experienced Frankfurt's political blackmail. On the 18th of November, where there was a governing council of the ECB in Frankfurt. The governor of the Irish central bank who sat on the governing council, called "Morning Ireland" which is the most important radio program in Ireland, to say that Ireland will need what he called a loan. He didn't warn the government about it and this created a massive panic.
Then, the next day, there was a letter written from the then president of ECB, Jean-Claude Trichet, to Brian Lenihan, the minister of finance at the time, saying that 'if you don't apply the so-called bailout program, by this opening of the markets the following Monday, we're going to cut off access to Emergency Liquidity Assistance (ELA)', which obviously would have collapsed the Irish banking system.
The ECB used the liquidity weapon in order to impose its terms o…

David Harvey: unless there is some real new thinking, another crisis is inevitable

globinfo freexchange
Chris Hedges spoke with David Harvey about the repeated crises of the capitalist system, which generate further instability, especially since the early 70s where we have the rise of financial capitalism and neoliberal ideology.
As Harvey points out:
Interestingly, in almost every crisis there has been a good deal of re-evaluation of exactly how to think about the economy, how to think about the relationship between state power and politics and all this kind of stuff.
Since 2007-08, is hardly any new thinking at all. And actually, we're trying to hang on. And we are trying to hang on because the oligarchy - which has all of the money, all of the power - is actually in a situation where it does not want any change. And until we confront the oligarchy, we're not going to find a way of exiting from this, apart from repeating what happened in 2007-08.
And the interesting thing when you look back, before 2007-08, and you see big financial crises in Argentina, in Braz…

The facts about Venezuela’s May 20th Presidential Election

Despite a high level of election transparency, one that Jimmy Carter called “the best in the world”, the US and its allies have accused Venezuela of election fraud. Caleb Maupin breaks down how Venezuela’s electoral system really works.
by Caleb T. Maupin
Part 3 - Accusations of Fraud
Despite the stringent safeguards in place to protect Venezuela’s election integrity, international media based in Western countries have widely claimed the election was fraudulent. Those claiming that the results are illegitimate have cited prior statements from SmartMatic, a corporation based in London that manufactured Venezuela’s voting machines. An official statement from SmartMatic claimed the 2017 Constitutional Referendum vote showed “tamper evident.” Statements from SmartMatic have been vague about how exactly the results were illegitimate or what malpractice took place.
Tibisay Lucena, president of the National Elections Center (CNE), says the claims from SmartMatic and its Chief Executive Antonio …

Will the Swiss citizens beat the banksters today?

About 5.3 million Swiss citizens, including registered members of the Swiss Abroad community, are eligible to take part in the June 10, 2018 ballot. Votes on a broad range of issues, as well as elections, also take place in many cantons and municipalities across the country.

The Swiss sovereign-money referendum of June 2018, also known as the Sovereign-Money Initiative, aims to give the central bank of Switzerland the sole authority of "creating money."
This is actually what the proponents of the Swiss "Vollgeld Initiative" want. They say only the government, through the publicly-owned Swiss central bank (SNB), should be able to create money and put it into circulation.
The Sovereign Money Initiative aims to give the Swiss Confederation a monopoly on money creation, including demand deposit (full-reserve banking, by including the creation of scriptural money in the legal mandate of the Swiss National Bank. The name of the initiative was inspired by…

Marx predicted our present crisis – and points the way out

The Communist Manifesto foresaw the predatory and polarised global capitalism of the 21st century. But Marx and Engels also showed us that we have the power to create a better world.
by Yanis Varoufakis
Part 1 - The spirit of communism driving the manifesto is proving hard to silence
For a manifesto to succeed, it must speak to our hearts like a poem while infecting the mind with images and ideas that are dazzlingly new. It needs to open our eyes to the true causes of the bewildering, disturbing, exciting changes occurring around us, exposing the possibilities with which our current reality is pregnant. It should make us feel hopelessly inadequate for not having recognised these truths ourselves, and it must lift the curtain on the unsettling realisation that we have been acting as petty accomplices, reproducing a dead-end past. Lastly, it needs to have the power of a Beethoven symphony, urging us to become agents of a future that ends unnecessary mass suffering and to inspire humanity …

More evidence that the 2011 riots in Syria were sparked by a false flag operation

globinfo freexchangeIndependent journalist Eva Bartlett spoke with Lee Camp about her recent trip in Syria. Bartlett visited the hospital in Douma where many victims of the latest alleged chemical attack went to receive medical care. Bartlett spoke with a medical student who was working the day of the alleged attack, and actually confirmed the reporting by the veteran journalist Robert Fisk, according to which there was no evidence of a chemical attack.
Bartlett also went to Daraa, where the first protests took place in 2011, and spoke to people there. They confirmed what many other investigative journalists support. 

This is strong evidence that it was a false flag operation that actually sparked the subsequent riots:
In the initial protest, Daraa was named as the birthplace of the so-called revolution. And Daraa is a city in the very south of Syria, not a very large city, and a rather unlikely city for a so-called revolution to have started. But prior going to Daraa, I interviewed a do…

IMF lunacy: Lagarde admitted to Varoufakis in private that the program imposed on Greece doesn't work!

globinfo freexchange
As Yanis Varoufakis describes in his book Adults in the Room:
Less than a month after my election, on 11 February 2015, in one of those spirit-numbing, windowless, neon-lit meeting rooms that litter the EU’s Brussels buildings, I found myself sitting opposite Christine Lagarde, the IMF’s managing director, France’s ex-finance minister and a former Washington-based high-flying lawyer. She had waltzed into the building earlier that day a glamorous leather jacket, making me look drab and conventionally attired. This being our first encounter, we chatted amicably in the corridor before moving into the meeting room for the serious discussion.
Behind closed doors, with a couple of aides on each side, the conversation turned serious but remained just as friendly. She afforded me the opportunity to present my basic analysis of the causes and nature of the Greek situation as well as my proposals for dealing with it, and nodded in agreement for much of the time. We seemed to s…
