Great-Man-Made-River Projekt

Über Libyens “Weltwunder”, das GMMRP: Great Man Made River-Projekt. Pipelines zur Wasserversorgung der libyschen Städte und landwirtschaftlicher Nutzflächen.

Anfang der 1960er Jahre wurde in Libyen erstmals Erdöl gefunden, die Ausbeutung der Vorkommen begann. Damit verbunden war die intensive Suche neuer Lagerstätten. Die Erkundung wurde bis tief in die Sahara ausgedehnt. Sozusagen als Nebenresultat dieser Explorationstätigkeit stießen die Bohrtrupps damals auf reiche Süßwasservorkommen, deren Umfang für aride Zonen, wie sie der größte Teil Libyens darstellt, die Ausbeutung geradezu unabdingbar erscheinen lassen.

Mit diesen Wasserreserven nahmen Pläne Gestalt an, dass Libyen eines Tages die Versorgung seiner Bevölkerung mit landwirtschaftlichen Produkten aus eigenem Aufkommen sichern kann und darüber hinaus diese Erzeugnisse exportiert.
Ursprüngliche Vorstellungen zur Errichtung riesiger Farmen in der Wüste nahe der Brunnen ließen sich nicht verwirklichen. Die Alternative war die Fortleitung des Wassers aus den Brunnenfeldern in die Küstenregionen, um die dort vorhandene Landwirtschaft…

NATO bombs the Great Man-Made River

Human rights investigations

It is a war crime to attack essential civilian infrastructure. 95% of Libya is desert and 70% of Libyans depend on water which is piped in from the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System under the southern desert. The water pipe infrastructure is probably the most essential civilian infrastructure in Libya. Key to its continued function, particularly in time of war, is the Brega pipe factory which enables leaks and breaks in the system to be repaired.

NATO has admitted that its jets attacked the pipe factory on 22 July, claiming in justification that it was used as a military storage facility and rockets were launched from there.

The Great Man-Made River

Libyans like to call the Great Man-Made River “The eighth wonder of the world”.

According to a March 2006 report by the BBC  the industrialisation of Libya following the Great Al-Fatah Revolution in 1969, put strain on water supplies and coastal aquifers became contaminated with sea water…

Balkanization - Weapon of Mass Destruction

By Giorgio Cafiero and Daniel Wagner, April 6, 2015

Nearly four years after NATO-backed rebels toppled the former Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi, the North Africa country has plunged into chaotic unrest.

The failure of last year’s election to achieve political unity in Libya was most evident when Fajr Libya, or “Libya Dawn” — a diverse coalition of armed groups that includes an array of Islamist militias — rejected the election’s outcome and seized control of Tripoli. The internationally recognized government relocated to Tobruk, situated in eastern Libya along the Mediterranean coast near the Egyptian border, while Libya Dawn set up a rival government, known as the new General National Congress, in the capital.

As forces aligned with the Tobruk government have fought Libya Dawn, the conflict has gradually become internationalized. Egypt and the United Arab Emirates have launched air strikes targeting Libya Dawn, while Turkey, Qatar…

Who Will Implement the New Greek Program?

LaRouche Irish Brigade

The big question now on the table, is, who will implement the bailout deal just worked out…  or not worked out? The issue is not which Greeks will implement it, but who among the creditors? On the Greek side, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras lost his coalition’s majority in Parliament on the issue, which could mean a cabinet reshuffling or early elections as soon as September or October.

The Greek Parliament passed the bill titled “Emergency Regulations for the Negotiation and Conclusion of Agreement with the European Stability Mechanism (ESM).”  A majority of 229 of a total of 299 deputies voted yes, with the main opposition New Democracy, To Potami, and Pasok voting in support of the government.  Sixty-four deputies voted against it, 32 of whom were Syriza members, and the rest from the fascist Golden Dawn and the Communist Party of Greece (KKE).  Another six MPs from Syriza abstained.

We found out who’s lobbying on the corporate paradise,TTIP. And it’s pretty disturbing

Who do you think should be writing the terms of the huge trade deal between the EU and the US that’s currently being negotiated? Politicians? European citizens? Or corporate lobbyists, paid hundreds of thousands of Euros a year to push a big business agenda in Brussels?

We’ve teamed up with Corporate Europe Observatory to find out who’s lobbying on TTIP, and it’s pretty disturbing to read. We found that some of the biggest increases in lobbying spending came from the finance sector and big pharma. Not the most trustworthy people when it comes to protecting European citizens.

We’ve created a set of graphics to highlight the most important details we’ve uncovered. With TTIP talks happening right now, it’s never been more important to spread the word about big business’ involvement in the deal. The more people that see them, the harder it will be for European politicians to justify this dangerous corporate power grab.

Have a look at the infographics yourself — and then share them on Facebook or by forwarding this email, so that everyone knows who’s really writing TTIP.

Our research found that many corporate lobbyists didn’t even bother signing the EU’s transparency register — leaving the public completely in the dark about their influence on the trade deal.

Even though politicians might try to ignore corporate lobbyists, their constant presence — not to mention fancy dinners — can be hard to resist.

The best way to stop politicians listening to lobbyists is to deliver a louder, stronger, people-powered message opposing TTIP. We’ve done that time and again — targeting politicians at every level, and highlighting the truth about TTIP whenever we get the chance.

But we also need to make sure we chip away at the power of the lobbyists lurking behind closed doors in Brussels, paid big money to convince politicians to ignore their voters in favour of big business’ demands. Shining a light on what they’re up to destroys their power.

We don’t have much time left before the talks finish for this stage of TTIP. And we urgently need to ramp up the pressure: US politicians just voted in favour of making it much easier for Obama to sign them up to big trade deals like TTIP. The EU is increasingly the last line of defence against the trade deal. If we want to prevent this massive corporate power grab, we need to stop lobbyists dominating the TTIP debate. Will you help spread the word?

Look at the shocking truth about the Brussels TTIP lobbying here — then share the details on Facebook to get the word out far and wide.

Thanks for all you do,
Wiebke, Hannah and the team at SumOfUs

 Greek Bailout Deal Highlights Monumental Scale Of Syriza’s Betrayal


By Chris Marsden

14 July, 2015

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has signed up to an agreement that transforms Greece into a de facto colony of the European Union and places the country under the dictates of Germany.

What remains of the Greek economy, above all its most valuable assets, is to be pillaged so that Athens can continue to pay back loans from the EU, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

Greece is to be placed under the direct control of EU officials. The function of Greece’s parliament will be to rubber-stamp the transfer of real authority to Brussels and Berlin. It has until Wednesday to pass a series of laws implementing the demands of German imperialism and the EU.

Syriza, elected just six months ago on the basis of a pledge to end austerity, is set to endorse by a large majority of its parliamentary deputies measures that go far beyond those agreed by the New Democracy and PASOK government it replaced.

Only days after he called a referendum and secured the support of two-thirds of the electorate for a “no” to further cuts, Tsipras is making plans to form an alliance with the parties that spearheaded the “yes” campaign in order to place the Greek people at the mercy of German imperialism. He will go down in history as the early 21st century equivalent of the World War II collaborationist leaders Petain and Quisling.

In return for imposing permanent and more savage austerity on millions of working people who have already suffered terribly under the dictates of the EU and the banks for which it speaks, Tsipras has secured nothing more than the reality of financial dictatorship today and promises of jam tomorrow.
The document of the euro zone leaders makes extraordinary reading. It took 17 hours to formulate, not because Tsipras was mounting a last-minute fight-back, but because Germany insisted that every dot and comma of the surrender terms be set out.

A proposal for “de-politicising the Greek administration” means that all decision-making on austerity measures and privatisations will fall under the remit of EU-appointed overseers. These enforcers will be able to veto all future legislation, while legislation passed by Syriza since it took office that is deemed contrary to the terms of the new austerity agreement will be rescinded.

There is, in any case, nothing left of Syriza’s “red lines” on taxation, pensions, the labour market and privatisation.

A “significantly scaled-up privatisation programme with improved governance” means that “Valuable Greek assets will be transferred to an independent fund that will monetise (i.e., sell off) the assets…” The fund will be run from Athens but “under the supervision of the relevant European institutions.”

The document also calls for “quasi-automatic spending cuts in case of deviations from ambitious primary surplus targets”—meaning Greece will have to raise more in revenues than the government spends each and every year, even after paying interest on its debt.

The detailing of the economic measures expected is extraordinary and includes stipulations for “Sunday trade, sales periods, pharmacy ownership, milk and bakeries… over-the-counter pharmaceutical products,” opening up “macro-critical closed professions (e.g., ferry transportation),” “the privatisation of the electricity transmission network operator (ADMIE),” and more.

Measures directly attacking the working class, including restrictions on collective bargaining and strikes and the gutting of protections against layoffs, are grouped under the heading “Labour market liberalisation.” They include “rigorous reviews and modernisation of collective bargaining, industrial action and, in line with the relevant EU directive and best practice, collective dismissals.”

The parliament must also agree to “the streamlining of the VAT system and the broadening of the tax base to increase revenue,” and a rise in the pension retirement age to 67 by 2022 and the phasing out of aid to the poorest pensioners by the end of 2019.

Germany’s original proposal was for the new privatisation fund to be administered from Luxembourg, through a German-controlled investment bank. The other supposed “concession” to Greece is that a specified figure of €50 billion for the value of the fund will be divided up so that 50 percent goes towards recapitalising Greece’s banks, 25 percent to pay back Greece’s creditors, and 25 percent for investments in Greece.

This is being hailed by Tsipras as proof that his was “a fight which, at the end of the day, will be vindicated.” He went on to claim that “we prevented the transfer of public property abroad, we prevented the financial asphyxiation and the collapse of the financial system [and] we managed to gain the restructuring of the debt and a financing process for the medium-term.”

This is all lies.

Assets will still be transferred out of the country, only the location of the criminal enterprise has been changed. Moreover, to date the only thing that has been agreed is that Greece will fund its own debt through privatisations. No external funding has been laid out, only the promise of negotiations for a third bailout.
The euro zone government heads’ statement “stresses that nominal haircuts on the debt cannot be undertaken,” and that “the Greek authorities reiterate their unequivocal commitment to honour their financial obligations to their creditors fully and in a timely manner.”

All that is actually promised by the euro zone leaders is to “consider, if necessary, possible additional measures” such as “longer grace and payment periods.”
The statement “takes note of the possible programme financing needs of between €82bn and €86bn, as assessed by the Institutions.” But having done so, it then “invites the Institutions to explore possibilities to reduce the financing envelope, through an alternative fiscal path or higher privatisation proceeds.”
In other words, the present round of asset-stripping is only the beginning. As Larry Elliott notes in the Guardian, “In truth, there is not the remotest prospect of Greece raising €50bn through privatisations in the next three years. The €50bn target was first announced back in 2011, since when the value of the Greek stock market has fallen by 40 percent, making its assets far less valuable. In the past four years, privatisation proceeds have raised just over €3bn.”

The document also “takes note” of Greece’s “urgent financing needs” of €7 billion by July 20 and €5 billion more in August. It is in return for this initial sum that Tsipras has been charged with either whipping his government into line, or, what is more likely, initiating a struggle that will end in the formation of a government of national unity.

His deadline for doing so, and for parliament agreeing to VAT increases, pension changes, the independence of the country’s national statistics institute and measures of “fiscal consolidation” is Wednesday night. Before then, the European Central Bank has agreed only to maintain the Greek banks’ existing €89 billion lifeline, keeping Greek banks closed and the country on rations until it does as it is told.

Should an agreement be reached on these terms, Greece’s overall debt will rise to around €400 billion, 200 percent of gross domestic product as compared to its present level of 175 percent. The International Monetary Fund admitted earlier this month that even the previous debt was unsustainable and could never be repaid.

Tsipras has already lost his parliamentary majority once. In coalition with the right-wing nationalist Independent Greeks, he had 162 seats in the 300-seat parliament. But eight Syriza MPs abstained, two voted “no,” and seven absented themselves in the vote taken Friday to approve the just-concluded negotiations.

The Independent Greeks have now said they will not support the agreement but will remain in government. However, this could change.

In addition, in an attempt to rescue their tattered reputation, sections or all of Syriza’s Left Platform may feel it prudent to vote against the proposals, which would likely lead to their expulsion by Tsipras. Under such circumstances, Tsipras may offer to form a new government with To Potami and PASOK, or form a full-scale national unity administration that includes New Democracy, prior to fresh elections.

Parliamentary arithmetic aside, the sheer scale of the assault on working people involved will inevitably provoke mass opposition directed against Syriza’s betrayal. In anticipation of the backlash that will develop, Adedy, the civil servants union confederation, has called a 24-hour strike for Wednesday against the economic reforms parliament is to vote on that day.

Kauilapele's Blog

benjamin_fulford_ottowa_senators_shirt_81Here is the weekly Ben. Several potent actions going on. And Obama-ISIL “mix up” was, of course, no “mix up”. We got it right, baby!!

“The Greek default essentially bankrupted the IMF, the European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve Board… they simply do not have the money needed to keep Greece or themselves going.

“The BRICS invited Greece to join them but, of course, the BRICS bank is not about to bail out the criminal Western banks that looted Greece, it will only help the Greek people.

“This was then, according to pentagon sources, followed by weather warfare as a major typhoon was sent crashing directly into Shanghai, forcing the evacuation of a million people.

“Obama was told in no uncertain terms that he was to stop “poking the bear” and to concentrate on the main enemy, which is the Khazarian mafia… Obama was forced to admit publicly…

Waarom het geldsysteem slechts een slavenketting is en hoe Griekenland het mikpunt werd


Filed in NIEUWS ANALYSES by on 14 juli 2015 2 Comments

euslavernijDe afgelopen dagen zijn de miljarden ons weer om de oren gevlogen in de berichtgeving over Griekenland. Er valt nauwelijks een touw aan vast te knopen. De Grieken kregen gister weer eens 86 miljard, maar voordien werd er ook al eens 110 miljard en vervolgens 130 miljard verstrekt. Ik lichtte al toedat waar gesproken wordt oversteun feitelijk sprake is van leningen. Elkaar steunen is een mooi principe. U zou waarschijnlijk een familielid of goede vriend steunen als hij of zij echt niet meer te eten zou hebben. Geld lenen aan iemand die net voldoende verdient om van te leven is eigenlijk het onmogelijke vragen. Bezuinigen op pensioenen en de BTW verhogen in een land dat al economisch volledig ingestort is, is vergelijkbaar met het vragen om nog meer te bezuinigen aan een gezin in de bijstand. Maar dat is niet het enige; er wordt ook nog eens voor miljarden aan Griekse bezittingen geroofd. Alles wat het land dierbaar is wordt verkocht. Wie die 50 miljard die dat op zou moeten gaan leveren, op gaat hoesten is maar de vraag, want een gemiddelde bank heeft dat niet zomaar op zijn rekening. Er zijn overigens wel wat steenrijke miljardairs die wel Griekse pandjes en grond kunnen kopen. Willem Alexander en Maxima gingen ze voor. Bill Gates alleen al heeft 79,2 miljard dollar (zie Forbes), maar de echte grote rijken der aarde staan natuurlijk niet in dit lijstje. De bankiersfamilies als de Rorthschilds die de Federal Reserve en feitelijk indirect alle centrale banken in hun pocket hebben, hebben zoveel geld dat het maar beter niet vermeld kan worden. Zij zijn de gene die het geld uit het complete luchtledige in een computersysteem van de centrale banken invoeren en die daarover de rente incasseren. Tel uit je winst! En ze hoeven er niets voor te doen. Zij zouden echt steun kunnen geven, maar hun hele systeem is er juist op gebaseerd dat niet te doen.

Stelt u zich eens voor dat u in een klein afgezonderd dorp leeft en alle mensen in dat dorp een verschillend vakgebied hebben. De een is boer, de ander bakker en weer een ander timmerman. In principe zou u met ruilhandel elkaar van dienst kunnen zijn. De timmerman bouwt een huis voor u en in ruil daarvoor levert u hem melk, groente en fruit en vlees. Nu is die ruilhandel niet altijd even praktisch, want het duurt even voor u de aardappelen geoogst heeft en de timmerman is ook wel even bezig met het bouwen van uw huis. Daarom spreekt u onderling af dat u waardepapieren tegenover een dienst zet. Er is 1 persoon in het dorp die die papieren drukt en voor die dienst mag hij zelf ook wat waarde papieren houden. Laten we hem meneer Jansen noemen. U heeft dat onderling ‘geld’ genoemd en zo kan de timmerman alvast aan de slag terwijl u uw diensten later levert. U geeft hem daarvoor dat geld, dat hij later weer in kan ruilen bij u voor de geleverde producten. Ineens besluit meneer Jansen dat het ook wel handig is als hij wat meer geld drukt en dat uitleent aan enkele mensen in het dorp. De bakkerij is namelijk uitgebrand en de bakker moet dus opnieuw een pand laten bouwen, maar kan de timmerman niet betalen. Op zich handig dat Jansen wat geld bij drukt, want zo kan de timmerman toch vast aan de slag en kan de bakker geïmproviseerd in een schuur toch al snel weer broden gaan bakken en zijn grondstoffen inkopen. Maar Jansen is slim en vraagt rente.

De dorpsbewoners zien Jansen steeds meer spullen kopen. Jansen heeft ontdekt dat hij nog veel rijker kan worden. Hij gaat wat mensen in het dorp tegen elkaar opzetten en op een dag staat de boekwinkel in de fik. Iedereen vermoedt dat de kroegbaas de dader is, omdat hij jaloers zou zijn geworden als gevolg van de verhalen die de ronde deden. Zijn vrouw zou zijn vreemd gegaan met de eigenaar van de boekwinkel. Gelukkig kan Jansen een lening geven aan de eigenaar van de boekwinkel. Ineens beginnen mensen zich af te vragen of het wel eerlijk is wat Jansen doet. Hij drukt geld uit het niets en vraagt daar rente over. Hij wordt steeds rijker en doet eigenlijk helemaal niets. Jansen ontdekt dat hoe meer onderlinge onrust en strijd er in het dorp ontstaat hoe afhankelijker mensen van zijn gelduitleensysteem worden. Jansen krijgt steeds meer macht en drukt gretig geld bij terwijl hij weer voor een relletje zorgt. Eigenlijk is dit een gesimplificeerde weergave van het wereldwijde geldsysteem. De gelduitleners hebben de macht. Onrust, oorlog en onderlinge strijd maakt hen steeds rijker. Een land dat immers in de problemen zit heeft geld nodig om de rekeningen te kunnen voldoen. Een land dat platgebombardeerd is moet weer worden opgebouwd. Gelukkig is daar Jansen die er gewoon wat geld bij drukt. Het is nu eenmaal een in het gehele dorp geaccepteerd waardepapiertje in ruil voor producten of diensten.

De Jansen’s van deze wereld zijn de Rothschilds, Rockefellers en nog een paar anderen. Het is slechts een kleine private groep die het wereldwijde geldsysteem in hun greep heeft. Zij opereren niet in het zichtbare veld. Daarvoor hebben zij via een wereldwijd netwerk van geheime genoodschappen hun politici en bankiers op het zichtbare toneel geplaatst. Zij zijn als het ware de marionetspelers die aan de touwtjes trekken. En ook deze marionetspelers dansen weer naar de pijpen van een groep waartoe zij behoren. Het gaat heel ver om dit hier verder toe te lichten, maar in feite wordt de wereld al millenia bestuurd door oud Faraoïsche of Babalonische of Judaïstische (zionistische) bloedlijnen die hun zetel hebben genomen in Rome en meerdere centra die daaronder vallen. Ik noem ze de Saturnus aanbidders of ook wel de Saturnus cult. Zoals Jansen in het kleine dorp ontdekte dat geld een mooi middel was om mensen in zijn greep te krijgen, dient het geldsysteem wereldwijd datzelfde doel. Waar het in beginsel een logisch en handig ruilmiddel leek te zijn, is het uiteindelijk verworden tot een middel waarvan mensen afhankelijk zijn gemaakt en waarvan de waarde steeds verder afneemt, omdat Jansen maar ongeremd geld bij blijft drukken. En hij kan dat, want doordat er nogal veel onrust en strijd in het dorp is en mensen vaak gewoon niet meer rond kunnen komen, blijven ze toch maar bij Jansen aankloppen.

Griekenland is gebruikt om heel Europa in verder afhankelijkheid van de banken te leiden. Bij tekorten rennen we massaal naar Jansen. Hoe dit systeem werkt lichtte ik al eerder toe in het vergelijk met de mafia. Het wereldwijde eeuwenoude systeem van de geheime genoodschappen zit diep geïnfiltreerd in de universiteiten en allerlei instituten die hun mensen laten infiltreren in de maatschappij. Wat zou u doen als mafiabaas als u een restaurant over wilt laten nemen? U leidt een neefje op tot boekhouder en laat deze solliciteren binnen het restaurant. Vervolgens zorgt u ervoor dat dit neefje een vertrouwensband opbouwt met de eigenaar en na verloop van tijd blijkt dat het restaurant de rekeningen niet meer kan betalen. Als geliefde en vriendelijke mafiabaas bent u natuurlijk bereid geld te lenen. Een andere methode is dat u even voor een relletje zorgt in het restaurant, waardoor het hele interieur door vechtende klanten wordt vernield. Zo zijn er meerder wegen die naar Rome leiden, maar als geldverstrekker wint u altijd. En als u eenmaal geld uitgeleend heeft, kunt u natuurlijk eisen gaan stellen. Voortaan wordt drank alleen nog bij u ingekocht. Op landen niveau’s werkt het niet veel anders. Degenen die achter de schermen wereldwijd de marionetpoppen bespelen hebben alle politici en bankiers in hun zak. Dacht u nog dat het iets uitmaakte dat u op D66 of Groenlinks in plaats van VVD, CDA of PVDA stemde? Think again! Ze komen allemaal uit dezelfde opleidingscentra en representeren een verschillend smaakje en kleurtje om u deillusie van keuze te geven. Tenslotte rijden we ook niet allemaal in een Audi. U heeft wat te kiezen, maar uiteindelijk werken ze allemaal voor Jansen. Voor Griekenland geldt niets anders. De valse hoop die de Syriza het Griekse volk gaf is slechts een manier geweest om een opstand te voorkomen. Tsipras is niets anders dan een wolf in schaapskleding die Jansen vertegenwoordigt.

In Griekenland begon ooit de illusie van democratie en met Griekenland eindigt die illusie ook. We leven onder een dictatuur van een wereldregering in wording die gerund wordt via het spel van Jansen; het mafieuze spel van de geldleners, de bankiers die in opdracht werken van de Saturnus cult die maar 1 doel heeft: slavernij en onderdrukking van de massa. Slechts de slaven die meehelpen dit piramidespel in stand te houden of de slaven die niet te veel in de weg staan, mogen iets meer luxe hebben in ruil voor hun buigzaamheid. Miljarden mensen worden echter klein en in armoede gehouden, maar gelukkig merk je daar weinig van als je op je eigen terreintje blijft en zorgt dat je je feestjes ver weg van al die ellende viert. Daarvoor hebben we immigratiebeleid en hordes bewakers aan onze grenzen, zodat al die armoedzaaiers niet onze luxe komen roven. Daarom willen we eigenlijk ook inmiddels liever niets met die armoedige Grieken te maken hebben. De media heeft ons zo gehersenspoeld dat we denken dat het luie bloedzuigers zijn. Nee, het zijn slechts slachtoffers van Jansen die gezorgd heeft dat de boekwinkel in de problemen kwam, waardoor ze geld bij hem moesten lenen, wetende dat ze het nooit terug konden betalen. En als het water ze tot de lippen staat, leent Jansen ze nog meer geld dat ze nooit terug kunnen betalen om vervolgens te zeggen: alles wat in jouw huis staat is van mij.

In de oude Griekse mythologie, was Europa een Fenicische prinses die door Zeus, in de gedaante van een hemelstier, werd ontvoerd en naar het eiland Kreta werd meegenomen, waar zij haar zoon Minos baarde. Dat Zeus, de gehele Griekse mythologie en dus ook de naam Europa een verwijzing is naar de Saturnus cult heb ik toegelicht in dit artikel. Dat is echter geen materie waar u even in 5 minuten overheen leest. Ook speelt de historische band met Servië en Rusland een rol. Dat lichtte ik in dit artikel toe. Het moge duidelijk zijn dat het geen toeval is dat het grote Europa nu versneld bewerkstelligd is, door Griekenland in de financiële problemen te brengen (wat begon met Goldman Sachs of eigenlijk al ver daarvoor door het in positie manoeuvreren van de puppet regeringsleiders) en zo de bevolking in alle andere landen in Europa te doen geloven dat er zwaar bezuinigd moest worden. Het geldleensysteem van Jansen in optima forma. Er is maar 1 doel in dit hele spel en dat is dat u en ik versneld in slavernij onder de dictatuur van Europa gebracht moesten worden. Die missie lijkt geslaagd. Maar men gaat nog even verder, want een volk dat weer achterover kan leunen, kan in opstand komen. In het zweet des aanschijns zult gij uw brood verdienen!

Greece – What You Are Not Being Told by the Media

Every single mainstream media has the following narrative for the economic crisis in Greece: the government spent too much money and went broke; the generous banks gave them money, but Greece still can’t pay the bills because it mismanaged the money that was given. It sounds quite reasonable, right?

Except that it is a big fat lie … not only about Greece, but about other European countries such as Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland who are all experiencing various degrees of austerity. It was also the same big, fat lie that was used by banks and corporations to exploit many Latin American, Asian and African countries for many decades.

Greece did not fail on its own. It was made to fail.

In summary, the banks wrecked the Greek government and deliberately pushed it into unsustainable debt so that oligarchs and international corporations can profit from the ensuing chaos and misery.

If you are a fan of mafia movies, you know how the mafia would take over a popular restaurant. First, they would do something to disrupt the business – stage a murder at the restaurant or start a fire. When the business starts to suffer, the Godfather would generously offer some money as a token of friendship. In return, Greasy Thumb takes over the restaurant’s accounting, Big Joey is put in charge of procurement, and so on. Needless to say, it’s a journey down a spiral of misery for the owner who will soon be broke and, if lucky, alive.

Now, let’s map the mafia story to international finance in four stages.

Stage 1: The first and foremost reason that Greece got into trouble was the “Great Financial Crisis” of 2008 that was the brainchild of Wall Street and international bankers. If you remember, banks came up with an awesome idea of giving subprime mortgages to anyone who can fog a mirror. They then packaged up all these ticking financial bombs and sold them as “mortgage-backed securities” at a huge profit to various financial entities in countries around the world.

A big enabler of this criminal activity was another branch of the banking system, the group of rating agencies – S&P, Fitch and Moody’s – who gave stellar ratings to these destined-to-fail financial products. Unscrupulous politicians such as Tony Blair got paid by Big Banks to peddle these dangerous securities to pension funds and municipalities and countries around Europe. Banks and Wall Street gurus made hundreds of billions of dollars in this scheme.

But this was just Stage 1 of their enormous scam. There was much more profit to be made in the next three stages!

Stage 2 is when the financial time bombs exploded. Commercial and investment banks around the world started collapsing in a matter of weeks. Governments at local and regional level saw their investments and assets evaporate. Chaos everywhere!

Vultures like Goldman Sachs and other big banks profited enormously in three ways: one, they could buy other banks such as Lehman brothers and Washington Mutual for pennies on the dollar. Second, more heinously, Goldman Sachs and insiders such as John Paulson (who recently donated $400 million to Harvard) had made bets that these securities would blow up. Paulson made billions, and the media celebrated his acumen. (For an analogy, imagine the terrorists betting on 9/11 and profiting from it.) Third, to scrub salt in the wound, the big banks demanded a bailout from the very citizens whose lives the bankers had ruined! Bankers have chutzpah. In the U.S., they got hundreds of billions of dollars from the taxpayers and trillions from the Federal Reserve Bank which is nothing but a front group for the bankers.

In Greece, the domestic banks got more than $30 billion of bailout from the Greek people. Let that sink in for a moment – the supposedly irresponsible Greek government had to bail out the hardcore capitalist bankers.

Stage 3 is when the banks force the government to accept massive debts. For a biology metaphor, consider a virus or a bacteria. All of them have unique strategies to weaken the immune system of the host. One of the proven techniques used by the parasitic international bankers is to downgrade the bonds of a country. And that’s exactly what the bankers did, starting at the end of 2009. This immediately makes the interest rates (“yields”) on the bonds go up, making it more and more expensive for the country to borrow money or even just roll over the existing bonds.

From 2009 to mid-2010, the yields on 10-year Greek bonds almost tripled! This cruel financial assault brought the Greek government to its knees, and the banksters won their first debt deal of a whopping 110 billion Euros.

The banks also control the politics of nations. In 2011, when the Greek prime minister refused to accept a second massive bailout, the banks forced him out of the office and immediately replaced him with the Vice President of ECB (European Central Bank)! No elections needed. Screw democracy. And what would this new guy do? Sign on the dotted line of every paperwork that the bankers bring in.

(By the way, the very next day, the exact same thing happened in Italy where the Prime Minister resigned, only to be replaced by a banker/economist puppet. Ten days later, Spain had a premature election where a banker puppet won the election).

The puppet masters had the best month ever in November 2011.

Few months later, in 2012, the exact bond market manipulation was used when the banksters turned up the Greek bonds’ yields to 50%!!! This financial terrorism immediately had the desired effect: The Greek parliament agreed to a second massive bailout, even larger than the first one.

Now, here is another fact that most people don’t understand. The loans are not just simple loans like you would get from a credit card or a bank. These are loans come with very special strings attached that demand privatization of a country’s assets. If you have seen Godfather III, you would remember Hyman Roth, the investor who was carving up Cuba among his friends. Replace Hyman Roth with Goldman Sachs or IMF (International Monetary Fund) or ECB, and you get the picture.

Stage 4: Now, the rape and humiliation of a nation begin under the name of “austerity” or “structural reforms.” For the debt that was forced upon it, Greece had to sell many of its profitable assets to oligarchs and international corporations. And privatizations are ruthless, involving everything and anything that is profitable. In Greece, privatization included water, electricity, post offices, airport services, national banks, telecommunication, port authorities (which is huge in a country that is a world leader in shipping) etc. Of course, the ever-manipulative bankers always demand immediate privatization of all media which means that the country gets photogenic TV anchors who spew establishment propaganda every day and tell the people that crooked and greedy banksters are saviors; and slavery under austerity is so much better than the alternative.

In addition to that, the banker tyrants also get to dictate every single line item in the government’s budget. Want to cut military spending? NO! Want to raise tax on the oligarchs or big corporations? NO! Such micro-management is non-existent in any other creditor-debtor relationship.

So what happens after privatization and despotism under bankers? Of course, the government’s revenue goes down and the debt increases further. How do you “fix” that? Of course, cut spending! Lay off public workers, cut minimum wage, cut pensions (same as our social security), cut public services, and raise taxes on things that would affect the 99% but not the 1%. For example, pension has been cut in half and sales tax increase to more than 20%. All these measures have resulted in Greece going through a financial calamity that is worse than the Great Depression of the U.S. in the 1930s.

After all this, what is the solution proposed by the heartless bankers? Higher taxes! More cuts to the pension! It takes a special kind of a psychopath to put a country through austerity, an economic holocaust.

If every Greek person had known the truth about austerity, they wouldn’t have fallen for this. Same goes for Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland and other countries going through austerity. The sad aspect of all this is that these are not unique strategies. Since World War II, these predatory practices have been used countless times by the IMF and the World Bank in Latin America, Asia, and Africa.

This is the essence of the New World Order — a world owned by a handful of corporations and banks; a world that is full of obedient, powerless debt serfs.

So, it’s time for the proud people of Greece to rise up like Zeus and say NO (“OXI” in Greece) to the greedy puppet masters, unpatriotic oligarchs, parasitic bankers and corrupt politicians.

Dear Greece, know that the world is praying for you and rooting for you. This weekend, vote NO to austerity. Say YES to freedom, independence, self-government, sovereignty, and democracy. Go to the polls this weekend and give a resounding, clear victory for the 99% in Greece, Europe, and the entire western world.
