Ολαντρέου

του Νίκου Μπογιόπουλου

Σήμερα η στήλη είναι κάτι παραπάνω από ενθουσιασμένη!

Πρώτον διότι εκείνα τα σύννεφα στις σχέσεις Ολαντ – Τσίπρα διαλύθηκαν. Οριστικά. Τι κι αν ο κ.Τσίπρας αποκαλούσε τον Γάλλο πρόεδρο «Ολαντρέου», καταγγέλλοντάς τον πριν από δυο χρόνια ότι όπως ο Γιώργος Παπανδρέου είχε αθετήσει τις «σοσιαλιστικές» του υποσχέσεις στην Ελλάδα, έτσι κι εκείνος, ο Ολάντ είχε αποδειχτεί αφερέγγυος απέναντι σε Γάλλους και Ευρωπαίους.

Δεύτερον διότι η Γαλλία είναι μια μεγάλη χώρα που αγαπά την ειρήνη. Οι πρόσφατες ιμπεριαλιστικές επεμβάσεις της από τη Συρία μέχρι το Μάλι το αποδεικνύουν. Οι ηγέτες της, επίσης, αγαπούν το λαό τους. Πράγμα που μπορεί να είναι ωφέλιμο και για τον δικό μας λαό. Απόδειξη, τόσο τα 10 εκατομμύρια των φτωχοποιημένων και κοινωνικά αποκλεισμένων στη Γαλλία – μια Ελλάδα δηλαδή – όσο και τα γκέτο του Παρισιού.

Τρίτον διότι με την πολιτική που εφαρμόζεται (και) στην Γαλλία το αστικό σύστημα οδηγεί τους ανθρώπους να λατρεύουν τη δημοκρατία. Οι εκλογικές επιδόσεις της Λεπέν είναι αδιάψευστος μάρτυς.

Τέταρτον διότι η Γαλλία είναι σίγουρο ότι θα μας βοηθήσει ώστε το θέμα του χρέους να διευθετηθεί με τον καλύτερο δυνατό τρόπο για τον ελληνικό λαό. Βέβαια εκείνο το χρέος της γαλλικής «Πεσινέ» προς το ελληνικό κράτος, όταν η καλή εταιρεία – σύμφωνα με την τότε αποικιοκρατική σύμβαση - κατανάλωνε το 10% όλης της ηλεκτρικής ενέργειας της χώρας (!) πληρώνοντας ένα τίμημα συμβολικό, δεν γνωρίζουμε να καταβλήθηκε ποτέ. Φυσικά δεν υπάρχει λόγος να χαλάμε τις καρδιές μας μπλέκοντας μεταξύ τους άσχετα θέματα…

Πέμπτον – και σημαντικότερο - διότι δυο πράγματα είναι αυτά που παρηγορούν τη ψυχή, που βελτιώνουν την διάθεση και που τα έχουν κατά νου οι Έλληνες για να πορεύονται στα δύσκολα. Το ένα είναι η ύπαρξη του Αϊ-Βασίλη και το άλλο είναι εκείνο το «Ελλάς – Γαλλία – συμμαχία»…

«Ελλάς – Γαλλία – συμμαχία»… λοιπόν. Και τώρα ερχόμαστε ξανά στη διαπίστωση ότι η ιστορία αυτής της αέναης τραγωδίας που βιώνει ο ελληνικός λαός και ο τόπος, ακόμα και στην περίπτωση που θα επαναλαμβανόταν ως φάρσα, θα ήταν μια κάποια «πρόοδος».

Όμως εδώ δεν έχουμε καν κάτι τέτοιο. Δεν έχουμε καν την επανάληψη της Ιστορίας ως φάρσα. Εδώ έχουμε την ίδια Ιστορία να συνεχίζεται ως αέναο δράμα, με το ένα τραγικό της κεφάλαιο να διαδέχεται το άλλο.

Για να δώσουμε ένα παράδειγμα, ας πάμε το ρολόι του χρόνου δυο αιώνες πίσω. Από τον 21ο αιώνα στα τέλη του 19ου. Στα 1887.

Τότε, παραμονές του «δυστυχώς επτωχεύσαμεν», ο Χαρίλαος Τρικούπης διαπραγματευόταν για λογαριασμό της εγχώριας πλουτοκρατίας ένα νέο δάνειο με τους (ίδιους πάντα) «συμμάχους» και «φίλους».

Τελικά, το δάνειο ορίστηκε στο ονομαστικό ποσό των 135 εκατομμυρίων γαλλικών φράγκων, από το οποίο, όμως, το πραγματικό ποσό που συμφωνήθηκε να εκταμιευτεί από τους πιστωτές μας - μετά τις κρατήσεις, τις εγγυήσεις και τις προπληρωμές τόκων - δεν ξεπερνούσε τα… 90 εκατομμύρια φράγκα.

Τί έγινε, όμως, με τα υπόλοιπα; Πού πήγαν τα λεφτά του δανείου;

Η μερίδα του λέοντος (κατά τον Ανδρεάδη τα 32 εκατομμύρια, κατά άλλους τα 52 εκατομμύρια του δανείου) καταβλήθηκε στους τραπεζίτες για την εξόφληση παλιότερων δανείων (σσ: είναι αυτό που σήμερα το έχουν βαφτίσει «ανακεφαλαιοποίηση»)...

Επίσης, ένα επιπλέον ποσό ύψους 13 εκατομμυρίων «πέταξε» για την ικανοποίηση παλιότερων οφειλών σε ξένους τοκογλύφους...

Από το δάνειο, επομένως, των 135 εκατομμυρίων δεν είχαν πια απομείνει παρά μόνο 25 εκατομμύρια…

Και εδώ έρχεται το «καλύτερο»: Επειδή ουδείς δανείζει ή «στηρίζει» (και τότε και τώρα και πάντα) χωρίς «ανταλλάγματα», για την εκχώρηση του δανείου που «πέτυχε» τότε ο Τρικούπης, για τα 25 εκατομμύρια που είχαν δηλαδή απομείνει από το δάνειο των 135 εκατομμυρίων, ο ελληνικός λαός υποχρεώθηκε να επωμιστεί νέα βάρη ύψους… 26 εκατομμυρίων!

Τόσο κόστιζαν - 26 εκατομμύρια φράγκα – τα τρία θωρηκτά και τα κανόνια που παρήγγειλε η κυβέρνηση Τρικούπη (σε γαλλικές, φυσικά, εταιρείες) και που δεσμεύτηκε να αγοράσει από τους δανειστές για να της δώσουν τη «στήριξή τους»!

Αυτή ήταν η «βοήθεια» πριν από εκατόν τριάντα χρόνια των «συμμάχων» και «φίλων» μας προς την Ελλάδα. Έτσι τις έκανε τις «δουλειές» της η εγχώρια ολιγαρχία με τις ξένες φίλες της.

Αυτά τότε…

Σήμερα, άλλωστε, οι Γάλλοι δεν μας ζητούν να αγοράσουμε θωρηκτά. Αντίθετα για κάτι φρεγάτες (έξι τον αριθμό) γίνεται λόγος τα τελευταία χρόνια. Και φυσικά η εταιρεία τους η «Souez», δεν κάνει μπίσνες με όπλα. Με το νεράκι (και με τις μετοχές τις ΕΥΔΑΠ και της ΕΥΑΘ) κάνει μπίσνες…

Confirmed: Alex Jones' popularity rises after Infowars banning from social media

globinfo freexchange
We wouldn't expect to be confirmed so fast on this.
A few days ago in the article IT and social media supergiants have just made Alex Jones a hero in the eyes of the ultra-conservative audience, we wrote that Alex Jones' wet dream has just become reality thanks to the combined move by Facebook, Apple, YouTube and Spotify to ban Infowars. These private IT and social media companies couldn't give a better gift to him right now. At a time where Infowars was going through a saturated period according to the best scenario, the corporate giants actually saved it with that stupid(?) strategy.
Suddenly, a corporate branch of the liberal establishment gave real value to Alex Jones' awful performance, pretending to be the 'anti-establishment' hero - just like Donald Trump - and made him a real hero in the eyes of the ultra-conservative audience that has been brainwashed by his absurd conspiracy theories.
Only a couple of days later, Kyle Kulinski of the…

Corporate media begin typical operations to make progressives comply with the establishment

The operations will multiply and become more aggressive towards 2020
globinfo freexchange
Corporate media of the ultra-conservative side made already a ridiculous attempt to present Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as totally unreliable. In the video, TYT hosts analyze very well the specific strategy followed by Conservative Review TV.
The strategy is quite simple: you create a fake video, you upload it on social media and after being watched by thousands you admit that it was created for satire purposes. Yet, the propaganda will be definitely effective because only a small portion will notice that this was satire. Most of the viewers (especially from the conservative audience that has been heavily brainwashed for decades to love corporate America and believe whatever comes from the Fox apparatus) will believe whatever transmitted from the ultra-conservative propaganda machine.
But the corporate media of the liberal side have a very big problem right now. It is almost impossible to start an open …

‘I knew and approved the assassination of Maduro’ claims TV show host

globinfo freexchange
Peruvian journalist Jaime Bayly claimed in his TV show Bayly, that he was aware and had personally approved the attempted assassination of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
"My reliable sources have called me and told me 'on Saturday we will assassinate Maduro' and I told them 'do it'," he said in his show and added: "When they asked me if I would condemn their move I replied that if they want I can buy them another drone."
Referring to Maduro, the journalist called him to be on alert. "My friends," he said, "are very capable, they have already scared you and there are more to come".
In a press conference, Maduro wondered how it is possible a host of a show in the US stating openly that he was aware of the attempted assassination.

How normal human behavior became a false mental disorder epidemic

globinfo freexchange
In the early nineties, an epidemic of mental disorder was sweeping America and Britain. It had been uncovered by a new system for identifying disorders. Psychiatry had been attacked for relying on the personal and fallible judgement of psychiatrists.
But instead, a new objective method based on checklists had been invented. These listed only the objective symptoms, and deliberately did not enquire into why the individuals felt an anxiety. In the late 80s, nationwide surveys had revealed an incredible picture: more than 50% of Americans suffered from mental disorders.
But at the very same, the drug companies had announced that they had created a new type of drug, called an SSRI, which they claimed, targeted the circuits inside the brain that were causing these malfunctions. The SSRIs were marketed under names like "Prozac". What they did was alter the amounts of serotonin that flowed across the circuit connections within the brain, and they readjusted the …

While you've been occupied with that Infowars-banning story, the establishment machine already started a covert censorship operation against leftist independent media

globinfo freexchange
Developments are coming like storm. Just when the prediction that Infowars banning will actually strengthen Alex Jones' popularity became true, it seems that our second 'prophecy' (and prediction by many progressives), also becomes true. According to this, Infowars banning will be used as a blueprint by the establishment machine to shutdown progressive independent media and voices, based on that 'fake news' narrative.
We wrote that a corporate branch of the liberal establishment gave real value to Alex Jones' awful performance, pretending to be the 'anti-establishment' hero - just like Donald Trump - and made him a real hero in the eyes of the ultra-conservative audience that has been brainwashed by his absurd conspiracy theories.
Max Blumenthal speaks with Aaron Mate and gives details about Alex Jones' dark role in the whole story:
Alex Jones has always served establishment priorities. First, by taking the 9/11 truth movement, whi…

The idiotic circus of terror leads us to the final collapse

There is a familiar checklist for extinction and we are ticking off every item of it. The idiots know only one word: more. They are unencumbered by common sense. They hoard wealth and resources until workers cannot make a living and the infrastructure collapses. They live in privileged compounds where they eat chocolate cake and order missile strikes. They see the state as a projection of their own vanity.

failed evolution
The idiots seen in the decay the chance of personal advancement in profit, takeover in the final days of crumbling civilizations.

Idiot generals wage endless unwinnable wars that bankrupt the nation.
Idiot economists call for reducing taxes for the rich and cutting social service programs for the poor. And project economic growth on the basis of myth.
Idiot industrialists poison the water, the soil and the air. Slash jobs and depress wages.
Idiot bankers gamble on self-created financial bubbles and impose crippling debt peonage on the citizens.
Idiot journalists and …

The US empire was always conducting trade wars that even included deliberately created cartels

globinfo freexchange
Donald Trump is using his trade wars to support the part of the US capital that has heavily lost from free trade globalization, which is more powerful than ever in our days. This is also part of the Trump agenda to persuade Americans for his "patriotic devotion" based on his "America First" slogan.
The reality is that the US empire was always conducting trade wars that included not only tariffs on specific products, but even deliberately created cartels.
In the early 90s the Clinton administration uncritically adopted the neoliberal doctrine from Ronald Reagan and continued the big fraud against the majority of the Americans.
On the one hand, the Clinton administration was selling the big fairy tale of neoliberalism to the American public: free market capitalism would bring prosperity for all through that trickle-down fiasco. And it was translated, as always, in further cuts in public spending - more tax-cuts for the super-rich. On the other hand, …

Retired US army colonel implies that a war with Iran could start with a Vietnam-type false flag operation

globinfo freexchange
After Tucker Carlson brought additional embarrassment to the pseudo-Left warmongering liberals with his anti-war positions, he tried to make Trump appear, more or less, as a kind of peace defender. He was joined by Douglas Macgregor, a retired US Army Colonel.
Both Carlson and Macgregor attempted to blame Trump's warmongering officials and the war lobby for the fact that another devastating war, this time with Iran, becomes more and more possible. The truth is slightly different because Trump has enormous responsibilities for this development too. He was from the start very hostile against Iran, he did everything in his power to kill the Iran nuclear deal and put the most bloodthirsty, anti-Iran neocons in key positions.
Yet, it would be worth to focus on a peculiar statement by Macgregor at the end of this short interview. As he said:
           You and I know that there are lot of people who would welcome conflict with Iran, that's obvious. I think the presi…

WikiLeaks paper shows France & UK pioneers behind Libya breakup

On March 16, 2016 WikiLeaks launched a searchable archive for over 30 thousand emails & email attachments sent to and from Hillary Clinton's private email server while she was Secretary of State. The 50,547 pages of documents span from 30 June 2010 to 12 August 2014. 7,570 of the documents were sent by Hillary Clinton. The emails were made available in the form of thousands of PDFs by the US State Department as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request. More PDFs were made available on February 29, 2016, and a set of additional 995 emails was imported up to February 2, 2018.

A letter from Clintons' top advisor Sidney Blumenthal to Hillary Clinton in early March, 2012, reveals that two of the Western neocolonial powers, France and UK, were trying to breakup Libya in order to secure a privileged place upon the Libyan corpse for their big companies. It appears that both Sarkozy and Cameron, as well as their intelligence services, were working closely…

The financial system of chaos: no one can tell the 'when', 'where' and ‘how’ of the next financial meltdown

globinfo freexchange
In previous article we wrote that, the last mutation of capitalism, which has started about four decades ago, appears to contain the tools of its final demolition. Financial capitalism, accompanied with the corresponding neoliberal ideology, created a deeply unequal and unstable system.
Another study by The Democracy Collaborative comes to confirm that we live in the most unstable times, where financial crises become more frequent and more devastating. According to the study:
It appears that, contrary to the great moderation theory, the occurrence of financial crises has been accelerating in the neoliberal era.
An important 2001 paper by a number of economists from Rutgers, Berkeley, and the World Bank found that "since 1973 crisis frequency has been double that of the Bretton Woods and classical gold standard periods and is rivaled only by the crisis-ridden 1920s and 1930s. History thus confirms that there is something different and disturbing about our age.&qu…
