Possible scenarios after the arrests of Golden Dawn members

by system failure

It's kind of hard someone to say that some things are random. The last days we witnessed rapid developments and events in Greece that, if combined, a lot can be explained.

Arrests of Golden Dawn members: why now?

German elections gave the opportunity to the representatives of neoliberal dictatorship in Greece, to restrict the neo-nazi monster that threatened to break out of their control. The reelection of Merkel, secures the expansion of destructive neoliberal policies across Europe in favor of bankers and big capital and the nazist monster can go back to the closet, until further instructions.

Although already mentioned briefly, in a previous article, what the representatives of the neoliberal dictatorship in Greece managed to achieve (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2013/09/greece-when-neoliberal-dictatorship.html), the list of their "achievements", could be expanded. Specifically:

Within less than a month, all settled as they wanted. They knew Golden Dawn, they expected such a murder. As long as GD was murdering immigrants and doing the "dirty work", was quite useful. Just after this political assassination of a Greek citizen, the "local representatives" found the excuse to cut the unacceptably high rates of GD and restore them to a more "manageable" level of about 7%. Small enough to be able to control GD and big enough to be a threat against "democratic stability" to spread the fear again if necessary and a factor of breaking the anti-Memorandum electoral tank, which contains various ideological colors. It was not very difficult, as they control banks, media, poll companies, the government itself.

In particular, Samaras government tries to fix its image after the fiasco of ERT, as attempts to prove that keeps equal distance from everyone, without discrimination, and has the same determination in each case to act summarily.

It's not easy for someone to believe this, as Golden Dawn acted undisturbed so far under the tolerance of the police. The already classic argument made ad nauseam by the mainstream media as an excuse for the Greek justice and police inaction, that they were trying to connect all data to secure criminal charges, looks silly, if one consider that for other - perhaps less difficult - cases, the delay of the Greek authorities is characteristic.

The Greek Minister of Public Order and Citizen Protection, Nikos Dendias, this time moved very fast and the finding of the Greek Supreme Court, composed in record time, include details of action, structure, and even the past and the course of the neo-nazi organization through time. How did they do it now so well, so fast, to "tie" the data after the assassination of Fyssas? Everything indicates that they had the necessary proofs long ago, but waited for the right moment. Besides, this was also confirmed, substantially, by the former coalition government partner and leader of the Leftist party Dimokratiki Aristera, Fotis Kouvelis, who said that some New Democracy and governmental officials, were playing with the Golden Dawn agenda.

Also, Samaras government attempts to get rid of the stigma of ideological relation with the fascist far Right, while in the government participate some MPs from Nea Dimokratia, with a far Right past, and while the government closed the Public National Broadcaster through a coup d'etat type action.

Some possible scenarios

The representatives of neoliberal dictatorship in Greece, as managed to restrict Golden Dawn to the desirable limits, are now free to focus on the problem called “new possible rise of the Left”.

During the next period, we should probably expect new successive polls between increased propaganda against the "dangerous", for their plans, Left and certainly against SYRIZA, the Leftist opposition party, which threatens the first position for the Memorandum block in future possible elections.

Neoliberal dictatorship, does not afraid of course, solely, a possible rise of the Left during future elections in Greece. What fears most is, whether the domino theory could be verified, through the general rise of the Left in Europe. A domino which can be started from Greece and could be expanded initially in the eurozone periphery, putting at risk its plans.

If the polls show a new rise of the Left beyond "manageable limits", new provocation operations should not be unexpected, by the para-state mechanisms, which the systemic establishment activates, when its sovereignty is threatened. Besides, the ground is properly prepared through the so-called "theory of two extremes", which equalize the neo-nazist far Right with the radical Left. This theory is reproduced ad nauseam by the mainstream media and by systemic mouthpieces. Although this theory is soundly baseless, can be particularly effective if combined with successful provocation operations.

As neoliberal dictatorship is ruthless, behaves essentially like the leadership of a mafia organization, dropping out some of its members when they are not useful anymore, as did with the Golden Dawn.

Thus, another possible scenario is to drop out some "useful politicians" who serve its interests through the participation in the government, but now do not need them. The bell rings for the Socialist coalition party leader, Evangelos Venizelos, and probably for some others since it is almost certain that, there is evidence for their responsibility about handling the case of the Lagarde list, which incidentally has been temporarily forgotten. Maybe it's time, some evidence to be revealed about the case "incidentally".

From a possible sacrifice of Venizelos, there will be additional profits. First, the image of the neoliberal Right (i.e. essentially the Nea Dimokratia main government coalition party), will further improve. This would be the most desirable development, since Nea Dimokratia is the most authentic and most definite representative of the neoliberal dictatorship in Greece in a political level, giving the impression that does not hesitate to give up even its own partners for the sake of justice, in order to balance the new harsh measures that will come under the orders of Merkel and the Troika lenders, and give a rising sense of justice for citizens.

Therefore, Nea Dimokratia will possibly win the trust of even more far Right voters who, along with new "cleaning" operations of illegal immigrants, could be persuaded for the intentions of the party, and allow it to continue undisturbed the completion of the Greek experiment and pave the way for its expansion throughout Europe.

US-backed counter-revolution coup against Cuba blatantly fails

globinfo freexchange   Since at least early 2018, the US imperialists were setting the stage for another coup against Cuba in the form of a "color revolution".  As reported back then:   The US State Department announced a new program called 'The Cuba Internet Task Force'. The Task Force will consist of the US government and non-governmental representatives to "promote the free and unregulated flow of information in Cuba". It is part of the National Security Presidential Memorandum of "strengthening the policy of the United States toward Cuba", that was issued by President Trump in June 2017.   This policy seeks "advancing Cuban human rights; encouraging the growth of a Cuban private sector independent of government control; enforcing final orders of removal against Cuban nationals in the United States". The US has sought to overthrow the Cuban government ever since the 1959 revolution. This is not the first time the US has attempted to

Chris Hedges on Assange, Donziger, & the US prison state

Redacted Tonight   Chris Hedges joins Lee Camp for a conversation around his latest book about teaching in American prisons. They also discuss corruption in the media and the U.S. System of Justice. The persecution of Julian Assange and Steven Donziger have garnered attention over the last few weeks for their egregious displays of judicial corruption in service of the world’s most powerful people. Hedges provides context for your outrage in their cases. He then reveals his experiences teaching prisoners in maximum security facilities and expresses support for incarcerated people who have chosen to protest their living conditions.

Alert: US imperialists prepare counter-revolution coup on November 15th to take over Cuba!

globinfo freexchange   On November 1st, Lee Camp appeared astonished by the fact that the State Department essentially announced a US-backed coup against Cuba in advance!  And not only that. The US imperialists revealed the specific method and the exact date of the counter-revolution coup! The method is the typical one that we've seen in various cases the last decade or so, which involves a type of "color revolution". The date: November 15th. On November 2nd, cadenagramonte.cu website gave the details and the key players of the operation.   On November 3rd, TeleSUR reported that:                                A Cuban government representative said that Cuba has probably been facing up the largest and most complex cultural warfare operation orchestrated by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), promoting a new type of counterrevolution. On Twitter, Cuba's Deputy Foreign Minister Anayansi Rodríguez posted a U.S. plan to bring Cuba's political system down, whic

Οι ολιγάρχες ετοιμάζουν το Plan B που είχαν στο συρτάρι: Συγκυβέρνηση ΝΔ-ΚΙΝΑΛ και επιστροφή της γαλαζοπράσινης λαίλαπας

globinfo freexchange   Το άκρως φιλοκυβερνητικό Βήμα , κομμάτι της συστημικής προπαγάνδας της εγχώριας ολιγαρχίας, έδωσε χθες το σύνθημα για το Plan B των ολιγαρχών που είχαν στο συρτάρι ως εναλλακτική, καθώς δεν χρειάστηκε να το θέσουν σε εφαρμογή, λόγω της αυτοδυναμίας που πέτυχε η Μητσοτακική δεξιά στις εκλογές του Ιουλίου του 2019.    Πρόκειται το σενάριο συγκυβέρνησης ΝΔ-ΚΙΝΑΛ.  Όπως είχαμε γράψει τον Ιούνιο του 19, η ΝΔ (με ή χωρίς δεκανίκια), έχει ως μοναδική αποστολή να συνεχίσει το "λαμπρό" της έργο από εκεί που το άφησε. Βέβαια, η "Αριστερή παρένθεση", που η Τρόικα εσωτερικού και εξωτερικού φρόντισε έτσι και αλλιώς να κουρελιάσει, κράτησε λίγο παραπάνω απ'ότι υπολόγισαν τα "μεγάλα αφεντικά". Τώρα, ήρθε η ώρα να ξεκουμπιστεί, διότι υπάρχει κίνδυνος να θυμηθεί τις Αριστερές της καταβολές και να καταστρέψει το "θεάρεστο" σχέδιο του νεοφιλελεύθερου ιερατείου. Απ'ότι φαίνεται, υπάρχουν πρόθυμα δεκανίκια, για παν ενδεχόμενο. Από τότ

Visionary realism: A green future beyond capitalism - Yanis Varoufakis, Ann Pettifor & Noam Chomsky

DiEM25   "There is no alternative", "it's the end of history" in the shadow of the 2008 crash, the environmental crisis and ongoing COVID19 pandemic, never has the hubris of these words been more striking. Nevertheless if we are in fact at the end of an era, what comes next? Join us in uncovering the exciting possibilities that the future can hold with public intellectual Noam Chomsky and economists Ann Pettifor and Yanis Varoufakis. 

The most important battle for Press Freedom in our time

If he is extradited and found guilty of publishing classified material it will set a legal precedent that will effectively end national security reporting.   by Chris Hedges  Part 1 For the past two days, I have been watching the extradition hearing for Julian Assange via video link from London. The United States is appealing a lower court ruling that denied the US request to extradite Assange not, unfortunately, because in the eyes of the court he is innocent of a crime, but because, as Judge Vanessa Baraitser in January concluded, Assange’s precarious psychological state would deteriorate given the “ harsh conditions ” of the inhumane US prison system, “ causing him to commit suicide .” The United States has charged Assange with 17 counts under the Espionage Act and one count of trying to hack into a government computer, charges that could see him imprisoned for 175 years. Assange, with long white hair, appeared on screen the first day from the video conference room in HM Prison Belm

Top 1% of US earners now hold more wealth than all of the middle class

by Alexandre Tanzi and Mike Dorning  After years of declines, America’s middle class now holds a smaller share of U.S. wealth than the top 1%. The middle 60% of U.S. households by income -- a measure economists often use as a definition of the middle class -- saw their combined assets drop to 26.6% of national wealth as of June, the lowest in Federal Reserve data going back three decades. For the first time, the super rich had a bigger share, at 27%. The data offer a window into the slow-motion erosion in the financial security of mid-tier earners that has fueled voters’ discontent in recent years. That continued through the Covid-19 pandemic, despite trillions of dollars in government relief .   Rise of the Super Rich   Middle-class Americans now hold less wealth than the top 1% by income.   While “middle class” has different meanings to different people, many economists use income to define the group. The 77.5 million families in the middle 60% make about $27,000 to $141,000 annually

Top media company demands reporters write pro-US/EU/Israel propaganda

The Grayzone   The major media company Axel Springer SE, which owns Politico, Business Insider , and top German newspapers, was exposed for forcing its employees to write pro-US/EU/Israel propaganda. It has also been accused of being funded by the CIA. 

US govt-backed social media companies meddle in Nicaragua's elections

The Grayzone   Remember Russiagate claims of "Kremlin meddling"? Well, the US government is blatantly interfering in Nicaragua's elections. Ben Norton and Max Blumenthal discuss how, mere days before Nicaragua's November 7 elections, Meta/Facebook/Instagram, Twitter, and Google/YouTube purged thousands of pro-Sandinista journalists, activists, and media outlets. Meanwhile, the US Congress voted for more crushing sanctions.   They address the gaping holes in Facebook's bogus report falsely claiming the Sandinistas it purged were " government-run troll accounts, " which was written by former Pentagon-funded NATO press officer Ben Nimmo, a symbol of how social media corporations have effectively merged with the US government.
