In search of a global-scale alignment of the progressive forces

A difficult challenge - although necessary - for the battle against neo-Feudal tyranny

by system failure

A year has passed since the first time that SYRIZA managed to win the elections in Greece. It was the first time in the history of the modern Greek state that a Leftist party have won the national elections. Many dramatic events occurred during that year. SYRIZA split under the pressure of its creditors, retreated under the ruthless regime of the European Financial Dictatorship (EFD), and finally, transformed into a systemic Social-Democratic party, according to the plans of the Brussels-Berlin axis.

However, the EFD paid a big price for this victory. As already mentioned in previous articleTsipras managed to expose completely the real face of this 'remarkable' union. The response of people in social media was characteristic, speaking even about a coup against Greece. The turn of the public opinion, taking now the side of Greece, is obvious, as Europeans can see clearly their dark future inside EFD. This open blackmail by the bureaufascists against Greece with the help of the ECB makes people in potential future eurozone members to think twice their entrance in this financial dictatorship. Double damage for plutocrats' plans.

One of the reasons that the Brussels bureaufascists and the Berlin directorate wanted to crush Tsipras, was to block the Leftist momentum across Europe. Their efforts had not been very successful, as the Leftist parties managed to maintain some of their power, breaking the bi-partisan systemic establishment in Portugal and Spain, after the recent national elections there. Furthermore, Corbyn's rise in the leadership of the Labour Party in the UK, has brought an additional "headache" to the neoliberal establishment in Europe.

Yet, what we observe now in the European scene, is that the Left still appears weak and unable to gain more power. The most significant waves of turbulence to the neoliberal establishment in Europe come from the far-Right in many countries. The nationalists exploit also the refugee problem to increase their influence and power in each European country. As far-Right extremism and xenophobia grows, the forces of the Left face the danger of saturation. There is a good reason for this and it's not only because the Left has been unable to re-shape its own truly independent framework of values that could seriously overcome the obsolete capitalistic terms.

What makes the European Leftist movement weak against the neoliberal establishment and the far-Right, is that its main components are still dedicated to a progressive internationalism through the illusion that this can be achieved inside today's European structures. This is an illusion which also splits the Left not only in Greece, but the European Left as a whole too. Which means double damage for the progressive forces who become an easy victim for the monstrous mechanisms of the EFD.

The moderate Leftists, like Tsipras and those who remained in SYRIZA, fear that they may lose their ideological orientation by retreating from their basic principles which include a Humanistic internationalism. Yet, there is a huge contradiction here, as Tsipras administration already retreated (very quickly), on some fundamental Leftist principles by signing a third catastrophic memorandum with Greece's creditors. Furthermore, Tsipras himself exhibits a Machiavellian behavior concerning inner-party members who strongly oppose the policies imposed by the creditors, or, external alliances with countries of authoritarian regimes (e.g. Egypt, Israel). Therefore, current Greek government follows a Kissinger-type Realpolitik strategy, rather than a policy based on pure Leftist ideological principles.

The moderate Left across the Europe needs to understand that the support of the nation-state structure at this crucial moment, is absolutely necessary for the resistance against the devastating neoliberal internationalism, which is based on the free market cannibalism. The Left must fight for the survival of the nation-state, not in nationalistic terms of course, but in terms of guaranteeing the most fundamental rights of the citizens.

The return to the nation-state structure is not a barrier to the global cooperation and alignment of the progressive forces. On the contrary, it could function as a protection shield to the onslaught of neoliberalism and the neo-Feudal tyranny that follows.

The huge advantage of the forces of neo-Feudalism is that they are much more flexible and powerful, having surpassed all the democratic institutions in the West. Megabanks and multinational corporations have occupied all the key government positions through former executives. Lobbyists determine all the agreements according to their interests. The TTIP-type deals is the best proof for this fact and, unfortunately, they will be proved a crucial element for the definite establishment of the neo-Feudalism globally.

Consequently, the Dystopian nightmare of the global neo-Feudalism can be stopped only by a global alliance of the progressive forces, which must surpass regional and ideological limitations, to form a united front through strong cooperation between nation-states.

A significant disadvantage against such a perspective is not only the split of the Left, mostly in Europe, but also the lack of synchronization in global scale. The Leftist - or closer to the Left - governments in Venezuela and Argentina, for example, have been replaced by right-Wing neoliberal ones.

However, still there is a unique opportunity in the Western world with the surprisingly strong momentum of Bernie Sanders prior to this year's US elections. Bernie has a long way to go until the US presidency, but the American people seem to realize their power on overthrowing the regime of the establishment.

Despite all the problems, it is certain that the European Left watches the political developments on the other side of the Atlantic, with growing attention. In case that the crazy dream become true with Bernie as the next US president, the perspective of joint progressive forces against the neo-Feudal tyranny, could become much more probable.

  1. If the progressives, the leftists keep defending OPEN borders and importing Muslims and North Africans... they are doomed.

    Think Sanders & Trump. Bernie sanders originally was against illegals.. saying they destroyed the opportunities of those already here. But someone stuffed a sock in his mouth... and he is now for Amerimexico.

    That is not a winning strategy for the other progressive ideals. Telling people they must commit cultural suicide to save other people is a loser.

    And the right wing will continue to flourish as people try to save themselves from the INVASION.

    Now that is not to say that right wing populism favors banks, or Wall St bond holders... remember... Trumpets HATE Wall St and the same people Sanders voters hate.

    But a realignment of what is left and right is VITAL if we are to SAVE ourselves... from the invasion AND the banks.

    That's the winning strategy... ignore it at your peril.

    There us no invasion; the previous (now receding) migration of Hispanics to the U.S. were being driven out of their homes by destruction of national governments by rapacious multi-nationals. They were pushed out. To the extent that the U.S. left can champion progressive nationalism at home and abroad, we can win.

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 …

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…

‘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 …

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, …

Why the rapidly escalating and most disgusting propaganda against Jeremy Corbyn is actually a good sign

failed evolution
In the UK front, the liberal establishment machine is escalating its propaganda campaign against Jeremy Corbyn through that 'anti-Semitic' smearing. In reality, his only 'crime', of course, is that he is too lefty for the totally-occupied-by-neoliberalism Britain.
After the collapse of that ridiculous Skripal case - that ended to an embarrassing fiasco for the Western clowns - the establishment machine in the UK gave up its campaign to smear Jeremy Corbyn as a Russian stooge.
The new 'brilliant strategy' of the establishment tools is simply to paint Jeremy Corbyn as 'anti-Semite'. Which is actually the permanent smearing by the mainstream media and the liberal political center - many have been bought by the Israeli lobby- against anyone who has the ‘audacity’ to condemn the Israeli crimes against Palestinians.
The logical leap in this case is literally ridiculous: if you condemn the Israeli crimes against Palestinians, immediately means tha…

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 establishment tools have recently eliminated a very promising progressive - here is how they did it

globinfo freexchange
In the following video, Kyle Kulinski describes how he schooled Fox tools on progressive policies. The debate was set up on the occasion of another 'interview' (4:18 - 5:22 in the video) in which Cori Bush appeared to be quite unprepared to deal with Fox’s aggressive style. Unfortunately, shortly after this ugly attack, Cori Bush, a very promising progressive, lost in primaries, and 'surprisingly', most of the establishment media (both liberal and conservative), indirectly welcomed the result with a kind of relief.


Many progressives reacted with a kind of embarrassment on Cori Bush's response, yet in reality she did nothing wrong. It was certain tactics by the Fox tool that made Bush appear unreliable, and in this case, these tactics were (unfortunately) successful.
Examine again the video.
First of all, the Fox tool literally invaded in the place and started aggressively asking questions to Cori Bush about that tax issue. The tactic is very common…
