Why the European Financial Dictatorship will continue to torture Greece at least until 2019

... and how this is related mostly with the British, rather than with the German elections

by system failure

Early this year we saw that Greece's creditors pushed the country to take measures even after the end of the "program", or, the Greek experiment if you like.

Latest developments led to the known scenery: Greece was pushed to take more measures for 2018 and 2019, the creditors promised a form of debt relief, but again, Alexis Tsipras didn't manage to take anything, except the usual hypocritical sympathy for Greece by some of the creditors in Europe. The roles are known: Wolfgang Schäuble has no problem to play the bad guy, and everyone else, including IMF, is hiding behind him.

We have repeatedly said that the representatives of the neoliberal Feudalism pretend that they have different positions concerning the unsolved puzzle of the Greek debt, while in reality, they do not care at all about "solving" it, but only to complete the neoliberal experiment in Greece to the last detail.

And, despite that only a few details are left for the completion of the Greek experiment, it is certain that the European Financial Dictatorship will keep the noose tight around Greece at least until the next national elections in 2019, where they hope that the neoliberal Right, New Democracy, will win.

Also, some Greek government officials expressed recently their optimism that Greece could return to the money markets during the summer with a viable interest rate, but our guess is that it won't happen, because this would give a certain degree of independence to Greece from the ECB and Draghi's liquidity injections.

The neoliberal priesthood knows that there is still a danger of a possible sudden interruption, and even reversal, of the Greek experiment, in case that Tsipras administration find an opportunity to make independent moves, away from the creditors' tight scrutiny, towards social policies and public investments. Then, their new 'model' for the whole eurozone, as they dream, could have been 'blown up'.

Many estimate that the German leadership deliberately postpones any discussion about the Greek debt issue until the German elections, hoping that the current political status quo won't change dramatically. In reality, we don't have to wait until then because it seems that the Left doesn't have any serious momentum that could break the sovereignty of the current political establishment. Therefore, not too many things are expected to change after the result of the German elections.

Instead, we should focus on the next crucial political event in Europe, the oncoming British elections. The rapid rise of Jeremy Corbyn brings additional heat to the Brussels-Berlin axis. The Labour party under his leadership represents their worst nightmare. It would be a nightmare for them to see the motherland of neoliberalism start turning to social policies and massive nationalizations of key sectors.

A successful Britain under Jeremy Corbyn that would manage to give rebirth to the social state and hope to its citizens, could become an example for the Greek people (and others). A significant percentage of the Greek society already express quite negative feelings about the euro currency and even the EU itself. Imagine what would happen if the Greek people would realize that Britain (which is now out of the EU) under Corbyn is bringing back social policies at the same time when they experience the brutal neoliberal measures imposed by Greece's creditors.

That's why the European Financial Dictatorship will give nothing to Tsipras. He will be forced to take only further measures against the Greek society under tight scrutiny. The Brussels-Berlin axis will use him and throw him to the dustbin, hoping to replace him with a more secure puppet, like the neoliberal leader of New Democracy, Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

We can only hope for a miracle: that SYRIZA has realized that it's impossible to achieve a decent deal with the Troika (ECB, IMF, European Commission) mafia, and therefore, has built (at last) a plan for Grexit that will lead Greece to freedom.

Η "ψεκασμένη" ακροδεξιά, η "εμβολιόπληκτη" Αριστερά και η φιλελέ βαρβαρότητα

του system failure   Με το που έκανε την εμφάνισή της η πανδημία του COVID-19 και άρχισε να φαίνεται το μέγεθος της υγειονομικής κατά κύριο λόγο, αλλά και οικονομικής κρίσης που αυτή θα προκαλούσε σε παγκόσμια κλίμακα, άρχισαν και οι εντατικές προσπάθειες για την δημιουργία ενός αποτελεσματικού εμβολίου.  Όπως ήταν αναμενόμενο, οι θεωρίες συνωμοσίας γύρω από το πιθανό εμβόλιο άρχισαν να διαδίδονται σχεδόν ταυτόχρονα και με μεγάλη ταχύτητα. Οι θεωρίες αυτές προωθήθηκαν κατά κύριο λόγο μέσω του διαδικτύου και ως επί το πλείστον από συντηρητικές και ακροδεξιές ομάδες και διαδόθηκαν από ανθρώπους που αποτελούν την κύρια δεξαμενή υποστηρικτών και ψηφοφόρων του Ντόναλντ Τραμπ, του Μπόρις Τζόνσον, αλλά και άλλων ακροδεξιών δημαγωγών σε διάφορες χώρες της Δύσης. Η "ψεκασμένη" ακροδεξιά έκανε παντιέρα αυτές τις θεωρίες (όπως έχει γίνει και σε άλλες περιπτώσεις), με τα αποτελέσματα που βλέπουμε σήμερα. Αρνητές των εμβολιασμών, σπεύδουν να εκμεταλλευτούν και την παραμικρή αστοχία ενός

Biden said Trickle Down economics has never worked, but guess who else said that before and what happened

globinfo freexchange   Forget the fact that it took him about forty years to realize that one of the biggest neoliberal fairy tales is essentially the utter fraud. Not to mention that, all these years, he became part of the failed neoliberal system. That, he was faithfully following orders from the wealthy donors,  efficiently sustaining this utter fraud and other neoliberal deceptive policies, to protect their interests.   "Uncle Joe" suddenly discovered that Trickle Down economics has never worked and made the statement to a joint session of US Congress as if he had discovered an earth-like planet with a technologically advanced civilization.   This is one of the most suitable cases for someone to respond with the phrase: "No shit, Sherlock". Yet, the weirdness of this parody doesn't end here. It's even funnier the fact that someone else before "Uncle Joe" made this great "discovery". And it took another big crisis to realize it (or ad

Καταρρέει το αφήγημα του Μητσοτακικού καθεστώτος όσον αφορά και τους εμβολιασμούς

globinfo freexchange   Ποιος θα το περίμενε ότι θα κατέρρεε και η τελευταία γραμμή άμυνας της καθεστωτικής προπαγάνδας και μάλιστα από ένα άκρως φιλοκυβερνητικό μέσο;   Η εκκωφαντική διάψευση απέναντι στα τερατώδη ψέματα του Μητσοτάκη, των στελεχών του καθεστώτος και των χειραγωγούμενων από το καθεστώς ανδρείκελων,  γύρω από την ταχύτητα των εμβολιασμών, ήρθε  από το Money Review της Καθημερινής . Όπως διαβάζουμε :                                Στο μέτωπο των εμβολιασμών, ωστόσο, τα στοιχεία της DBRS δείχνουν ότι η Ελλάδα έχει μείνει πίσω σε σχέση με τις άλλες χώρες της Ευρώπης, οι οποίες το τελευταίο διάστημα επιταχύνουν σημαντικά τα προγράμματά τους. Για την ακρίβεια, η Ελλάδα είναι αυτή τη στιγμή η τελευταία ανάμεσα στις χώρες που εξέτασε ο οίκος αξιολόγησης με βάση το ποσοστό του  πληθυσμού που έχει λάβει τουλάχιστον μία δόση του εμβολίου. Επιβεβαιωνόμαστε για άλλη μια φορά, πλήρως. Όπως γράψαμε στις αρχές Απριλίου, ο Μητσοτάκης προεξόφλησε ότι η ΑΥΤΟΔΥΝΑΜΗ κυβέρνησή του θα έπεφ

Kamala’s KHive trolls boosted by bots while media defends harassment campaigns

An April 8 LA Times profile of the “KHive” attempted to put a positive spin on Twitter’s nest of Vice President Kamala Harris super fans, omitting the group’s online abuses, offline harassment, and alarming origins. Describing the KHive as “ the type of modern political army that politicians increasingly rely on for both support and defense, ” the LA Times painted its members as political realists united by a desire to defend one of the most powerful politicians in the country from unfair attacks.  It turns out that Harris’ “modern political army” was manufactured with the aid of an even larger army of fake Twitter accounts. After the term “KHive” was formally branded by MSNBC pundits like Joy Reid, KHive leaders received a boost from a Democratic Party operative-controlled bot farm. One of the people most advanced by the botnet is the widely recognized founder of KHive, Bianca Delarosa.  According to Vox , KHive credited Delarosa with organizing KHive in a Facebook group that start

From RussiaGate to UkraineGate: Route to Apocalypse

Corruption and supposed efforts to reduce it have become a neoconservative weapon of choice with which to operate the controls on the funding sluice gates to acolytes of the U.S.-led international neoconservative empire.   by Oliver Boyd-Barrett   Part 3 - The 2014 Ukraine coup Trump had been roundly castigated, and impeached, for pressurizing a new Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, to investigate Trump’s likely rival, Joe Biden, for the 2020 election, in return for expediting U.S. arms support to Ukraine in its struggle against separatist republics of eastern Ukraine (the Donbass). Whatever its legality, Trump’s behavior certainly did not favor Russia. It could be argued that there was a stronger actual tie between Ukraine and President Biden than ever existed between former President Trump and Russia. Trump was unable even to interest Moscow or Russian President Vladimir Putin in a proposal for a Moscow Trump Tower. Biden left a much deeper impression on Ukraine.  In 2014 the

In moving UN speech, veteran diplomat confronts OPCW 'stonewalling and smear tactics' on Syria

The Grayzone   Returning to the United Nations, veteran German diplomat and former top UN official Hans von Sponeck calls for an end to the stonewalling of accountability for the OPCW's cover-up of its April 2018 Douma chemical weapons probe.  " The manner in which this serious controversy has been handled by OPCW management... has sought  to cover up any serious questioning of the OPCW through stonewalling and unacceptable smear tactics, " Sponeck says. " The Security Council can not be surprised that there is increasing public pressure for UN leadership to find an unbiased resolution of this troubling controversy. " Sponeck recently spearheaded a Statement of Concern about the Douma scandal, signed by notable global voices including five former OPCW officials. In his comments, Sponeck reveals that that the OPCW has refused to accept the letter, " return[ing] to the sender without comments – an unfortunate act of humiliation. "  Sponeck is the former

The hawks who want war with Iran are working overtime

Last week's cyberattack on an Iranian nuclear facility, reportedly by Israeli intelligence, is the latest gambit from the coalition of Israeli leaders, Christian fundamentalists, and hawkish Washington neocons who want to block a US return to the Iran nuclear agreement. If they're successful, millions of ordinary Iranians suffering under draconian sanctions will pay the price.   by Ariel Gold/Medea Benjamin   Just as talks between the United States and Iran were taking place last week in Vienna, a cyberattack was carried out on Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility. Reports are that the Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency, was behind the attack that blacked out the facility just one day after Tehran launched new advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges, and as US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin was in Israel speaking about the United States’ “enduring and ironclad” commitment to the Jewish state. This is the latest in a series of Israeli attacks on Iran designed to scuttle negotiati
