One possible scenario after the motion of no confidence in the Greek government

by system failure

The second phase of the plan of neoliberal dictatorship in Greece was completed through the invasion of the police special forces in the Hellenic Public Broadcaster (ERT) headquarters in Athens. (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2013/11/breaking-neoliberal-dictatorship.html) The road is open now to shutdown other public organizations of any kind across Europe, through fast, undemocratic processes. (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2013/06/europe-look-what-will-happen-to-you.html)

The ERT "model" has already applied in Valencia-Spain, as the governor of the autonomous periphery suddenly announced the shutdown of the public broadcaster RTVV. (http://www.euronews.com/2013/11/07/spanish-workers-fight-decision-to-shut-regional-tv-station/)

It seems that SYRIZA, the Left-wing party in opposition, was waiting for the right moment to table motion of no confidence in the government, among new outrageous demands from the troika lenders. The government appears to be so weak and tired that is not willing to play the role of the negotiator who is willing to resist at some level - despite any spasmodic reactions - since nearly no one will believe it this time.

Neoliberal dictatorship is willing to drive the experiment to the end and to expand it across Europe. Therefore, for a start, we should expect a strong common front from the coalition government of Nea Dimokratia - PASOK, in order to stay alive and keep executing the orders of the neoliberal dictatorship. The official statement of the Socialist party PASOK, with which fully supported the action of the government against ERT, proves this fact.

MPs with the PASOK Socialist party know very well that they cannot persuade any more that they follow Socialist policies since they vote for very cruel measures against society and see that their party has no chance to regain some of its lost power according to recent polls. The support statement for the invasion in ERT marks the total submission to the neoliberal agenda. George S.-P. Katrougalos, Constitutionalist and international lawyer, Professor of Public Law, has spoken about the end of Social-democracy on the occasion of this support statement, in the radio broadcast of Kostas Vaxevanis.

Therefore, a possible scenario after the motion of no confidence, which will allow current government to stay in power, unless there will be a big surprise of course, is the targeting of PASOK leader, Evangelos Venizelos, since he is facing serious accusations regarding at least two big cases, his actions related to the submarines that the Greek state bought from Germans and handling the Lagarde list case.

This motion of no confidence is probably the moment that the neoliberal dictatorship representatives in Greece expected, in order to "sacrifice" Venizelos and gain some time to take the new cruel measures. Nea Dimokratia, the main government coalition party, which basically represents the neoliberal Right in Greece, will rush to take advantage of this fact, in order to moderate impressions from the dictatorial operation in ERT and give the picture of the fair political party which do not hesitate to move against even high executives of its governmental partners for the sake of justice.

On the other hand, some PASOK high executives are waiting to take the leadership of the party, and will not hesitate to aid in Venizelos "sacrifice", as they know that no one believes that they serve the Socialist ideology. The new complex of Nea Dimokratia-PASOK which will arise through this process, will struggle to stay in power to complete the neoliberal experiment.

Το κύκνειο άσμα ενός μεγάλου πολιτικού απατεώνα

γράφει ο κρατικοδίαιτος νεοφιλελές   Και κάπως έτσι ολοκληρώνεται το έργο της πτώσης ενός μεγάλου πολιτικού απατεώνα τον οποίο θα θυμόμαστε μόνο για τα χατίρια που έκανε στην ντόπια ολιγαρχία που τον έφερε στην εξουσία.  Ο Κούλης Μητσοτάκης θα αφήσει πίσω του συντρίμμια, είτε φύγει πρόωρα, είτε κανονικά, στο τέλος της θητείας του.   Αφού τον χρησιμοποίησαν οι ντόπιοι ολιγάρχες, τώρα ετοιμάζονται να τον ξεφορτωθούν, γιατί τον θεωρούν καμένο χαρτί που φέρνει περισσότερες ζημιές παρά κέρδη.    Άλλωστε, η καθαίρεση Κούλη είχε έτσι και αλλιώς δρομολογηθεί εδώ και καιρό, αφού ακόμα και οι Βρυξέλλες πλέον τον θεωρούν καμένο χαρτί. Έτσι, ακόμα και τα πιο πιστά σκυλιά του συστήματος άρχισαν να σαλπίζουν την πτώση του. Στο πλευρό του Κούλη έχουν μείνει μόνο κάτι ξεχασμένα τρολ στα σόσιαλ μίντια και όσοι από το πρωθυπουργικό περιβάλλον ή και τη ΝΔ είναι μπλεγμένοι σε σκάνδαλα, αφού γνωρίζουν ότι ο Κούλης "άκουγε" και άρα τους "κρατάει". Και βέβαια, όσοι επιμένουν ακόμα και τώ

Top billionaire oligarch Elon Musk chooses camp in the capitalist civil war

globinfo freexchange     As we continue to monitor the developments in the capitalist civil war (which is particularly evident in the US/UK, the motherlands of neoliberalism), we covered the recent pro-Brexit capitalists' stressful attempt to find a suitable Thatcherite zombie that would help them stabilize their political power. It seems that they found a not so reliable solution in the face of Rishi Sunak, for now.   On the other side of the Atlantic, it seems that the top billionaire oligarch, Elon Musk, decided to join the alt-right, pro-Trump capitalist faction, for good.   The first signs of Musk's connection with the pro-Trump capitalist faction came out for the first time, probably during the US-backed coup against Evo Morales in Bolivia, back in 2019. In 2020, Musk responded to an accusation on Twitter (that the US government organized a coup against President Evo Morales so that Musk could obtain Bolivia's lithium), with the shockingly straightforward admiss

Pro-Brexit capitalists desperately seek a suitable Thatcherite zombie to govern Britain

by system failure   We can almost certainly conclude that the removal of Boris Johnson from the position of the UK prime minister came as a result of a counter-attack of the liberal globalist faction against the pro-Brexit faction in the capitalist civil war .   And it is almost certain that the utterly grotesque political figure of Liz Truss was a far more easy target for the anti-Brexit liberal capitalists. It took them only 45 days to overthrow her, making her the shortest serving Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Liberal capitalists proved that Truss-type politicians are a 'piece of cake' for them, especially when they decide to mobilize the global markets and their agents inside the Tories.   As George Monbiot reveals , Truss' policies shaped by lobby groups like the Institute of Economic Affairs, the TaxPayers' Alliance and the Adam Smith Institute. It seems that these are some key groups behind BrexitCentral website. And together, they form a network of rig

The Greek ‘Watergate' is getting huge as new bombshell revelations indicate that Mitsotakis regime was spying even some of its top executives!

globinfo freexchange     The Greek “Watergate” (as described by international media), caused a political earthquake in Greece when, about two months ago, it was revealed that the secret services bugged the phone of Greek socialist opposition leader and MEP Nikos Androulakis.   Well, it seems that this was just the tip of the iceberg. New bombshell revelations show that there is a very long list of people whose phones have been bugged, among them some top executives of Mitsotakis regime itself!  Top investigate journalist Kostas Vaxevanis (who has been targeted by the regime for his exclusive revelations around regime's big corruption scandals), has published today, in Sunday's edition of his paper Documento , a list of names whose cellphones have been infiltrated by the Israeli-made Predator spyware.   A partial list, as seen on the paper’s front page, includes Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias, former Conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, former minister, under both soci

EXPOSED: The most extensive case of covert pro-Western information operation on social media

Declassified Australia exposes and analyses a massive secret propaganda operation being run out of the US, that has been buried by Western media. by Peter Cronau   Part 7 - The Afghanistan cluster   A smaller number of Afghanistan assets was found to be using similar techniques to the other clusters such as AI-created profile images, fake news sites, and information from US sources. The sites ‘ consistently advanced narratives critical of Iran and its actions ’. ‘ Sometimes these narratives included inflammatory claims accompanied by articles from the US military-linked website afghanistan.asia-news.com. ’  The report cites a provocative example: ‘ A tweet from March 11 2022 which claimed that relatives of deceased Afghanistan refugees had reported bodies being returned from Iran with missing organs. ’ The article includes interviews with a purported Afghan official and Afghan nurse making the same unverified claims. Since the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban in August 2021, the fake

Corruption exposed: US meddled in Ecuador’s election, using Julian Assange as bargaining chip

A former minister of Ecuador testified that the US government conspired with a right-wing political party to run a disinformation campaign against the leftist Correísta movement, backing a millionaire banker for president in exchange for giving up journalist Julian Assange, who had asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy.    by Ben Norton   Part 2 - US intelligence-linked right-wing Ecuadorian politician uses corrupt US asset to accuse Correa of corruption   Rafael Correa shared the scandalous 2019 testimony in response to evidence-free accusations of corruption that Pareja Yannuzzelli made against the former president in a politicized hearing organized by the National Assembly’s auditing committee on November 9, 2022.

Today Villavicencio is a member of the National Assembly, but he first made his name as a high-profile opposition activist d

Massive anti-Russian ‘bot army’ exposed by Australian researcers

An Australian university has unearthed millions of Tweets by fake ‘bot’ accounts pushing disinformation on the Ukraine war.    by Peter Cronau   Part 1   A team of researchers at the University of Adelaide have found that as many as 80 percent of tweets about the 2022 Russia-Ukraine invasion in its early weeks were part of a covert propaganda campaign originating from automated fake ‘bot’ accounts. An anti-Russia propaganda campaign originating from a ‘bot army’ of fake automated Twitter accounts flooded the internet at the start of the war. The research shows of the more than 5-million tweets studied, 90.2 percent of all tweets (both bot and non-bot) came from accounts that were pro-Ukraine, with fewer than 7 percent of the accounts being classed as pro-Russian. The university researchers also found these automated tweets had been purposely used to drive up fear amongst people targeted by them, boosting a high level of statistically measurable ‘angst’ in the online discourse.  The res
