Brussels bureaufascists' "backup" alternative has been set up in Greece

globinfo freexchange

The result for the leadership of the main opposition party, New Democracy, in Greece after Sunday's elections, must had brought waves of relief to the Brussels-Berlin axis. Brussels bureaufascists and Berlin directorate have now the best "backup" alternative in case that Tsipras administration attempt to diverge from the catastrophic policies imposed by the European Financial Dictatorship (EFD).

From Guardian :

Greek conservatives have elected Kyriakos Mitsotakis as their new leader, hoping he can revive their fortunes and challenge leftist prime minister Alexis Tsipras who is still popular despite opting for austerity. The conservative New Democracy party seeks to recover from its heavy election defeat in September, when Greeks re-elected Tsipras’ Syriza party amid capital controls on bank deposits and a harsh third bailout with the country’s foreign lenders. Mitsotakis, a 47-year-old reformist lawmaker and scion of one of Greece’s most influential political families, is expected to pile pressure on 41-year-old Tsipras before a crucial parliamentary vote on pension reform, as part of the first review of Greece’s bailout programme.

[...]

New Democracy ruled Greece alone from 2004 to 2009 but has seen its popularity wane during the debt crisis. The party lost an election in January that first brought Tsipras to power and a second one in September. An ex-banker who has been a critic of trade union practices and state waste, Mitsotakis has called Tsipras a liar but also hinted that he could cooperate with him on national issues on specific terms. His father Constantinos served as prime minister from 1990 to 1993 and his older sister, Dora Bakoyianni, was foreign minister from 2006 to 2009.

[...]

New Democracy initially opposed the country’s international bailouts, but after winning a parliamentary election in 2012 and forming a coalition with the socialist Pasok party, it brought in austerity and unpopular reforms demanded by the country’s international lenders.

Despite that Tsipras finally surrendered to the EFD after the financial coup against Greece last summer, the EFD executives (Merkel, Schäuble, Juncker, Draghi etc.) are not feeling very comfortable with the current Greek government, especially after the political developments in Portugal and Spain, where the most faithful to the neoliberal agenda bi-partisan establishment, has collapsed after the latest elections.

It is certain that they worry now about the possibility that Tsipras could manage to form a united front with other European forces, which would mean that the plan for the completion of the neoliberal experiment in Greece and its expansion throughout eurozone, might be put in danger.

The new leader of New Democracy, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, is probably the ideal alternative solution. The man that could do the job, which is to apply accurately all the cruel neoliberal policies to the slightest detail, according to the Greek experiment.

Mitsotakis belongs to the team of New Democracy top members (Chatzidakis, Georgiadis, etc.), who are the most faithful to the neoliberal doctrine and absolutely dedicated to it. Under the pretext of "reforms", he will put a definite end to what is left from the social state in Greece, following consistently the timeline of the Greek neoliberal experiment.

His father, Constantinos Mitsotakis, served as prime minister from 1990 to 1993. He was the one who opened the road for neoliberalism in Greece. A path that the Socialist Kostas Simitis has faithfully followed later as a prime minister, after the capitulation of Bill Clinton with the banking capital and the deregulation of the US economy. Since then, the door for the destruction of Greece was wide open.

It is characteristic that after the announcement of the results for the new leadership in New Democracy, the media establishment made extended references to the winner (like someone who could really save Greece), while the internet trolls were propagating the estimation that a "new hope", or, "new age" starts for the country. This is at least ridiculous, considering that Kyriakos Mitsotakis is one of the most authentic representatives of the biggest political families in Greece. He is an authentic representative of the old political establishment that brought Greece in current situation.

Therefore, there is nothing new and nothing hopeful. Mitsotakis is just a secure "backup" for the Greek plutocracy and the euro-dictatorship, in case that Tsipras act this time "unpredictably" ...

Τραγωδία στο Μάτι και δεξιό παρακράτος: νέα στοιχεία για πιθανή επιχείρηση προβοκάτσιας

globinfo freexchange     Όπως είχαμε επισημάνει ήδη από τον Σεπτέμβριο του 19, η εγχώρια μιντιακή χούντα και οι καθεστωτικές μαριονέτες της Μητσοτακικής δεξιάς είχαν επιλέξει τελικά να ρίξουν το μεγαλύτερο βάρος της αντι-ΣΥΡΙΖΑ προπαγάνδας σε δύο βασικούς πυλώνες: στη συμφωνία των Πρεσπών και στην τραγωδία στο Μάτι.    Όσο περνούσε ο καιρός και αφού κατακάθισε η σκόνη της μιντιακής προπαγάνδας, όλα έδειχναν ότι το σενάριο μιας πιθανής προβοκάτσιας στην υπόθεση "Μάτι" ενορχηστρωμένης από το δεξιό παρακράτος (όσο και αν αυτό φάνταζε εξωφρενικό), δεν θα μπορούσε να αποκλειστεί.   Τα πρώτα ισχυρά σημάδια για την πιθανότητα ενός τέτοιου σεναρίου τα έδωσε το ίδιο το καθεστώς Μητσοτάκη με την επιβράβευση των υπεύθυνων αξιωματικών για τη διαχείριση της φωτιάς στο Μάτι, οι οποίοι πήραν προαγωγή! Κάτι φυσικά που απέκρυψαν επιμελώς όλα τα συστημικά κανάλια της μιντιακής χούντας (στην οποία ανήκει ασφαλώς και η Μητσοτακική ΥΕΝΕΔ) που στηρίζει σύσσωμη το καθεστώς. Πρόσφατα, ήρθαν και νέα

The bourgeoisie did not respect its heavy heritage

232 years later, regression towards the new Feudalism  by system failure It was 14th July of 1789 when the representatives of the bourgeoisie in France promised a different world. Indeed, authoritarianism and depression by Monarchy and Feudalism brought naturally a desire for a more equitable society. The triplet "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" was not a simple slogan reproduced to become a cliche, but represented the pure willing of the majority for a big change. 128 years later, another revolution, in Russia this time, promised to impose the implementation of those things declared in 1789, as the proletariat was building a class consciousness and the bourgeoisie had already abandoned its initial declarations. Several decades since then, two ostensibly different worlds were fighting against each other. On the one hand, the Soviet Communism that imposed a direct state authoritarianism and a monstrous bureaucracy, on the other, the indirect authoritarianism by the Western stat

The notorious London spy school churning out many of the world’s top journalists

The fact that the very department that trains high state officials and agents of secretive three letter agencies is also the place that produces many of the journalists we rely on to stand up to those officials and keep them in check is seriously problematic.   by Alan Macleod   Part 5 - The Bellingcat Boys While the journalists cataloged above are not spooks, some other Department of War Studies figures working in journalism could possibly be described as such, particularly those around the influential and increasingly notorious investigative website Bellingcat .

Newly leaked documents show how Bellingcat, Reuters and the BBC were covertly cooperating with the U.K.’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) to undermine the Kremlin and promote regime change in Moscow. This included training journalists and promoting explicitly anti-Russian media across Eastern Europe. Unfortunately, the FCO noted, Bellingcat had been “ somewhat discredited, ” as it constantly spread disinformation and was willing to produce reports for anyone with money. Neverthel

Reddit captured by national security state

Redacted Tonight   Lee Camp looks into the fall of Reddit. The website was originally a bastion of free speech where antiestablishment viewpoints and news could be amplified over the corporate propaganda that people in the modern west are used to. The ruling class wouldn't allow that to stand. It's a sad story that has brought us to this point where the front page of Reddit acts as a repository for corporate and State Department propaganda. 

THE ANGRY ARAB: How the US Controls Lebanon

The “war on terror” is even more convenient for Washington’s dreams of hegemony and domination than the previous war on communism, writes As`ad AbuKhalil.    by As`ad AbuKhalil   Part 2 - A War Without Limits   The American “war on terrorism” is even more convenient for U.S. dreams of hegemony and domination than the previous war on communism.  Unlike the latter, the “war on terrorism” knows no end and has no limits.  It is a war with no timetable or specific achievable goals, and that is how the U.S. likes it. The U.S. can’t declare a completion of its war on terrorism, just as states can’t declare an end to wars on crime or poverty. Those are virtual and theoretical wars, but with the U.S. this has become a war industry: essential for world domination.  U.S. troops are now present in most Arab countries. Morocco, Libya, Tunisia, Sudan Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and all Gulf countries host a large presence of U.S. troops. In Lebanon, while the Western media regurgitate Israeli and S
