Various scenarios for the national elections in Greece

A crucial point for Greece and Europe

by system failure

After the third vote in the Greek parliament for the presidential election (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/breaking-greece-towards-national.html), Greece walks towards national elections, as the government failed to collect the 180 MP votes required. In the next short period until the national elections day, we should expect an unprecedented propaganda war which will be launched by the global financial mafia mechanisms inside Greece and abroad.

All recent polls show that the Leftist party SYRIZA wins, for the moment, but it is rather doubtful whether will manage to take the required percentage to form an autonomous government.

Some possible scenarios follow briefly:

Scenario 1:

SYRIZA forms an autonomous government, or, a coalition with the help of the parties of the anti-austerity front. It will be the worse scenario for the global financial mafia as it could trigger an "uncontrolled" general rise of the Left in Europe. In this case, the banking-media dictatorship in Greece will declare war against the new government, try to destabilize it, and throw it from power as soon as possible.

Scenario 2:

SYRIZA will not gather the required percentage to form an autonomous government. As the options are limited in the political anti-austerity front, it may be forced to cooperate with the Socialists (PASOK), which may be presented with a more populist profile to persuade that they start to abandon neoliberal ideology, and the River party, which is clearly a creation of the media to attract voters from the Left. These systemic parties will try to control as much as possible the coalition so that some basic "achievements" of the Greek experiment will not be threatened. Subsequently, these parties may be used to destabilize the government by breaking the coalition.

Scenario 3:

Neither the neoliberal nor the anti-neoliberal front will be able to form government. In that case, the political dead end through repeated elections may give the suitable excuse to see a technocratic government by banking puppets, which will be presented as the only viable solution. This sub-experiment has already been tested in Greece and Italy through the banking puppets Papademos and Monti. This "solution"-parameter in the Greek experiment could be proved a dangerous threat to European parliamentary democracy, as may be used in other countries in times of political crises, becoming permanent practice and finally, establishing definitely the sovereignty of the plutocrats against the majority.

Scenario 4:

The unprecedented propaganda of destruction launched by the global financial mafia mechanisms inside Greece and abroad, during the short period until the elections in 25 January, manages to persuade a critical mass of the indecisive electorate to vote for "stability". Therefore, New Democracy takes the lead marginally and manages to form a new coalition government. Another alternative based on this scenario: http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/latest-from-greek-front-nightmare.html

This could be proved a real nightmare as the new neoliberal government will have now plenty of time to implement every aspect of the experiment in Greece, or even, try new sub-experiments under the orders of troika. This would mean that people are not willing to resist and the experiment may be expanded throughout Europe. It will probably mark the start of the new global Feudalism era.


ECB will be used as a tool to drive Europe into the desirable federalization with the characteristics of an empire (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/11/the-enee-sadism.html), rather than of a democratic federation. Scenario 3 will be probably the most suitable for the "emperor" Draghi to proceed towards this direction, as he has already the control inside eurozone through a decision taken more than two years ago: http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2012/09/lea-jacta-est-by-emperor-draghi.html

Especially in the case of scenario 1, the ECB will blackmail the government by threatening that will not purchase government bonds, therefore cut liquidity, in case that Greece choose a different path towards the reconstruction of the social state and labor rights, bringing minimum wage at pre-crisis levels, etc.

However, the system shows signs of panic, which means that the European officials don't know exactly how SYRIZA will react. In case that SYRIZA has a secret agenda, and be pressed by the lenders beyond red lines, it could nationalize the central bank and return to the national currency, blowing up eurozone. This could bring a disaster to the plutocrats' plans, as may trigger the domino of other Leftist European parties to follow SYRIZA's example and drive Europe towards the direction of the real democracy and unification under different terms for the benefit of the majority.

Everything will depend on whether people will choose to fight instead of surrender to the "empire".

  1. "In case that SYRIZA has a secret agenda, and be pressed by the lenders beyond red lines, it could nationalize the central bank and return to the national currency"

    I doubt SYRIZA will do that. Though I hope I am wrong.
    The only one that will leave the Eurozone and E.U is Dimitris Kazakis and EPAM.

  2. I expect a combination of 2 and 3, with SYRIZA forming a coalition with PASOK or To Potami. The establishment will use this party to pressure SYRIZA into towing the neoliberal line. At that point there are a few possibilities, they could be bullied into continuing austerity and split up internally, they could call the other party's bluff and try to govern as a minority government with communist support, or they could go to new elections to argue for a new majority. If SYRIZA succeeds in governing effectively in the face of external pressure and uses its position in government to tear apart the remnants of the Greek political establishment, the military might step in and impose a more grim scenario #3. I don't think anyone really wants a coup, but there is a chance for things to really spin out of control.

    1. Another more optimistic one: SYRIZA survives from the war, the lenders retreat to some extend because they don't know what will happen and the government manages to take some of the declared measures to relieve the poorest. This will give the necessary time for the other European Leftist parties to prepare and rise in power. After that, everything is possible.

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.
