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...

Tsipras chooses Debt Slavery

The Troika has triumphed over the Greek people. Alexis Tsipras defied the European gods, but did not have enough guts to take the battle for freedom to the endline. Previous governments, with the help of Goldman Sachs falsified oficial documents to allow Greece to enter the European Union, and today the Greek people are paying the price. The Referendum where millions of Greeks gave Tsipras a mandate to crush ...Read full article...

Alexis Tsipras sells out to the Troika

The NO vote by the people in Greece turned into a green light for Tsipras to further destroy the nation. Predatory monied interests make serial killers look good by comparison. Their business model creates crises to facilitate grand theft, financial terrorism and debt entrapment. They hold nations captive to their demands. They turn crises into humanitarian disasters. They create mass impoverishment, high unemployment, neo-serfdom and human wreckage. They’re more ...Read full article...

Tsipras asks for 50 billion euros to continue destructive economic policies

The referendum was a smoke screen by Tsipras to legitimize his plan to keep Greece in the euro zone under heavy austerity measures. Athens has met at noon today the first condition to avoid its exit from the euro, and in doing so, has conceded more than anyone had ever imagined after the NO vote on Sunday. The Greek government has already submitted an application for a third program of financial ...Read full article...

The Future of Europe is in Greek hands

Both Merkel and Hollande know that Greece’s exit might incite more departures from the eurozone, but prefer to “save face” than to solve the debt problem. Germany and France have opened the door to Greece to exit the euro zone and are now available to negotiate with Athens a solution to the crisis that sparked by Sunday’s referendum. In their first public comments following the consultation and on the ...Read full article...

European Banksters are afraid of Yanis Varoufakis

The Greek Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis, announced Monday his resignation because he believes that this can help the government to reach an agreement with the European institutions, hours after the victory of the ‘no’ in the referendum. Varoufakis, who said he would resign if the YES won on Sunday’s referendum met on ...Read full article...

Greece’s Sunday’s Vote Will Determine Liberty Or Serfdom

Troika-waged financial war is systematically destroying Greece. According to history books, democracy originated in Greece. Of course, historians could be mistaken, but this is the prevailing view among Western populations with enough awareness to be interested to know. What we are witnessing today, July 2, 2015, is that after 2,500 years in the Western World only the current Greek government is interested in democracy. The Greek government, to the ...Read full article...

Tsipras betrays the Greeks

Greece May Become BRICS Member

In May, Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergey Storchak invited Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to become the sixth BRICS member – joining Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
