David Cameron ignores calls to arrest Netanyahu

Over 100,000 Brits Want Netanyahu Arrested On September 9, he’ll arrive in London to meet with Britain’s David Cameron. As of Saturday, September 5, over 100,000 Brits signed a petition to arrest him – likely many more by September 9. Netanyahu was responsible for genocidal war crimes and mass destruction against Gaza last summer, noncombatant civilians suffering most, willfully targeted by Israel’s killing machine, on his direct orders, an ...Read full article...

Immigration Tsunami threatens to sweep Europe

A cataclysmic wave of Africans, Middle Eastern and Eastern European immigrants continues flooding Western Europe as people flee war, famine, drought and extreme poverty. The wave of immigration to Europe intensifies and increasingly overflows the continent’s capacity to deal with it. More than 23,000 immigrants have arrived to the Greek coast in the past week alone. Such influx is an increase of 50% compared to the previous week, according ...Read full article...

Maidan 2.0 Erupting in Ukraine?

A previous article explained overwhelming anti-regime opposition. Ordinary people are fed up with economic conditions creating enormous hardships – ignored to enrich privileged interests and wage war on Donbass. Sporadic protests erupted various times before – again Monday in front of parliament violently after police stopped thousands from storming the building, led by Right Sector Nazis, likeminded Svoboda party extremists and other ultranationalist elements. Whether Monday’s violence signals the ...Read full article...

Alexis Tsipras: A Judas all along

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras faked his progressive credentials. He was a Judas all along – pretending opposition to austerity to get elected, planning betrayal straightaway in office. Former Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis maintains a web site – posting his “comments for the post-2008 world.” On August 18, he headlined “Bailout deal allows Greek oligarchs to maintain grip,” saying: Terms lawmakers agreed to lets oligarchs dominating Greek economic sectors ...Read full article...

Obama promises more aid to Ukraine

President Barack Obama vowed Tuesday that his country will continue to support the illegitimate Ukrainian regime against what he called “Russian aggression” which he alleges originates in the east. Obama took time to officially congratulate Ukraine as the country celebrates its twenty-fourth anniversary of independence. “When you work to launch decisive reforms, despite the Russian aggression in the east and the occupation of Crimea, America will remain faithful in ...Read full article...

Tsipras wants snap election to bury the ‘no’ vote of the referendum

Candidate Tsipras made glowing pledges. Straightaway in office he breached them. Are Popular Unity members different? Politicians of all stripes notoriously make promises they systematically compromise or violate if elected. It’s hard imagining anything in prospect able to end Greece’s long nightmare. Its political class is beholden to Troika monied interests running things. No party is strong enough to win majority control. SYRIZA will likely retain enough support to govern with one or ...Read full article...

Europeans to bail out French and German Banks

The 86 billion euros from the third so-called financial rescue approved for Greece will be paid by citizens whose governments are members of the European Union. The interests on the loans requested by the Greek government will be paid in perpetuity by the Greek people. The third bailout will be disbursed over the next three years. The details and conditions of the program will be reviewed every two months, ...Read full article...

The number of immigrants who crossed the Mediterranean to reach Europe so far this year is now at 237,000. The number has already exceeded the total of those who managed to cross last year, said today the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

Greek Rape and Pillage Bailout Deal: Germany Wants More

Judas SYRIZA officials already agreed to perhaps the most severe neoliberal harshness measures ever imposed on a country other than conquered ones raped and pillaged by war. Not enough says German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble. He demands more. The Financial Times said his ministry sent Eurozone counterparts a paper outlining his objections. They’re scheduled to meet on Friday to decide whether to accept or reject already agreed on bailout ...Read full article...

Migrant flow to Europe is result of US, EU military ops in Middle East – Czech president

About 100 illegal immigrants waiting for deportation staged a demonstration on Friday, damaging the building of the center, according to local authorities. The flow of immigrants to Europe stems from the Western states’ military interventions in Iraq, Libya and Syria, which have contributed to the emergence of terrorist groups in the Middle East, Czech President Milosh Zeman told local media. “The current wave of migration is rooted ...Read full article...

The Greek Agreement with the Creditors is Illegal

Greece’s Parliament Cannot Override the NO Vote On Sunday  July 5, the Greek people voted in a historic referendum to refuse the Troika’s draft agreement. The Referendum was an outright  ”ritual of democracy”.  The Greek people were betrayed. On Monday morning, July 6, on the day following the referendum, Prime minister Tsipras put forth a 13 page draft proposal which included most of the demands of the creditors. This proposal, ...Read full article...

Greek VAT does not solve tax fraud in Greece

Nobody will be surprised to know that one of the reasons of the current Greek crisis is the high level of tax evasion. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) estimated in 2011 that tax evasion in Greece reached 30% of GDP, implying that public funds did not receive some 15 billion euros each year. Five years and three European bailouts after the start of the Greek debt ...Read full article...

Did Merkel just capitulate on Greek Debt?

Greece will never be able to pay off the debt, that much we can state as a sure thing. Not even if all Greek GDP were to be used to pay interests and the loans could the country pay off all of its obligations to the bankers. The third financial rescue pushed forward by Alexis Tsipras and the new austerity conditions imposed by the Troika will not rescue Greece, ...Read full article...

The Greek ‘rescue’ according to Varoufakis

Yanis Varoufakis did not leave his position as Greek finance minister silently, as Alexis Tsipras and the Troika would have wanted him to do it. In fact, he has lost no interest in the Greek situation after the agreement with the bankers was signed by the Prime Minister. In a new post on his personal blog, the former Greek minister details the consequences of the agreement which has now ...Read full article...

Tsipras does not believe in the Rescue

After mortgaging the lives of millions of Greek people and many more that are yet to be born, Alexis Tsipras now says the third financial rescue is not a good deal. Prime Minister of Greece, Alexis Tsipras, has acknowledged tonight that he “was forced” to accept a deal with partners he did not believe in on Monday, though he has committed himself to implement it, assuming “full responsibility” for ...Read full article...
