Greece

The cost of a decision last week to allow globalist vultures to metaphorically hog-tie Greece while the EU and IMF commences a good old fashioned economic pillaging of her state assets is a total evisceration of the country’s sovereignty, according to Eurogroup chief Jean-Claude Juncker.

“The sovereignty of Greece will be massively limited,” Juncker told Germany’s Focus magazine, adding that “experts” are now descending on the country to oversee a huge fire sale of state assets to private companies, likening the situation to post-collapse East Germany when 14,000 East German firms were sold off between 1990 and 1994.

Under the terms of the EU/IMF bailout, Greece has been forced to set up a privatization agency that will hand over real physical assets in return for little more than fresh air, in the form of a $17.43 billion bailout installment that amounts to nothing other than numbers typed into a computer screen.

As Gerald Celente likes to say, the money Greece will receive from the IMF is not worth the paper it’snot printed on, but the globalist vultures will get their hands on thousands of genuine assets that have real value. Like a heroin junkie, the country will be dependent on continual bailouts simply to keep functioning, and the cycle will just keep on repeating.

Of course, what Greece should have done, were it not for cowardly politicians who have proved adept at selling out their own country, is to give the globalists the middle finger, announce bankruptcy, ditch the Euro and go back to a devalued Drachma. This would have brought the tourists flocking back, saved Greece’s state assets from globalist seizure, avoided crippling interest payments on a debt that could never have been paid off, and provided the nation with a workable opportunity to shake off the shackles of economic bondage.

  • But the European Union and the IMF will fight tooth and nail to prevent that from ever taking place because, as top Bilderberger and Harvard professor Kenneth Rogoff made clear in a recent Financial Times piece, the future plan for a globalized currency system is wholly dependent on the survival of the Euro, which would almost certainly be destroyed if the Greeks were to default and ditch the single currency.

“The euro experiment has also brought us to a crossroads in the whole international monetary system,” wrote Rogoff. “Will our grandchildren inherit a world with a huge number of national currencies, or a very small number of multi-country currencies?”

That’s what’s at stake should Greek contagion erupt and infect the likes of Portugal, Italy and Ireland, which is why globalists are so desperate to keep the virus contained – it could kill off the entire European project and the wider move for global government that the Bilderberg Group and other affiliated power elites have worked so hard to craft for well over half a century.

With state governments already being forced to shut down in the U.S., everything we see unfolding in Greece is merely a portend of what the globalists have in store for America, with the IMF feverishly licking its lips at the prospect of unleashing its brand of financial terrorism as a final act of coup d’état against America.

Fabriano, vittima delle banche fa sciopero della fame

Fabriano: imprenditore Luciano Stopponi in sciopero della fame

FABRIANO (ANCONA), 3 LUG – Ad aprile, mentre migliaia di nordafricani scappavano verso l'Italia, aveva polemicamente chiesto asilo politico alla Tunisia, dichiarandosi ''vittima delle banche italiane in quanto imprenditore onesto''.

Tornato in patria, da qualche giorno fa lo sciopero della fame a casa sua, a Fabriano (Ancona). Il costruttore Luciano Stopponi e' al centro di una nuova clamorosa forma di protesta, per difendere – spiega – i propri beni e quelli della famiglia da una presunta ''truffa'', sulla quale un anno fa ha presentato un esposto alla procura di Ancona, finora rimasto senza seguito.

La vicenda riguarda la costruzione, interrotta, di un albergo a Matelica (Macerata), l'Hotel Agora'. Un'impresa nella quale l'uomo aveva investito tutti i risparmi, ma che poi, fra ricorsi al Tar, mancati permessi edilizi, e da ultimo il blocco di un mutuo edilizio da parte della Cassa di risparmio di Fabriano e Cupramontana l'ha condotto al fallimento.

Gli operai erano saliti per protesta sul tetto dell'albergo, il 29 luglio 2009 Stopponi si era incatenato davanti alla sede della Regione Marche, ma nonostante l'impegno delle istituzioni, la situazione non si e' sbloccata. Tutto per un mutuo di 2,5 milioni di euro, che, afferma Stopponi, era ampiamente garantito dai beni personali e familiari dell'imprenditore. Dopo una prima tranche di 1,1 mln di euro, la Cassa di risparmio avrebbe interrotto i finanziamenti, e i lavori dell'hotel si sono arenati.

Ma le procedure fallimentari e giudiziarie sono andate avanti, con varie confische: lunedi' il curatore fallimentare dovrebbe confiscare a Stopponi l'ultimo bene che ha, l'abitazione della famiglia. Una delegazione comunale fabrianese, composta dal sindaco Roberto Sorci e da consiglieri di vari partiti, e' andata a fargli visita, e a Stopponi rinnova solidarieta' e vicinanza umana il suo partito, il Pri, che attraverso il segretario regionale Giuseppe Gambioli invita la magistratura a fare chiarezza.

Strauss Khan e la mossa del cavallo

Strauss Khan e la mossa del cavallo

di Beppe Grillo

Strauss Khan è il nuovo favorito alla corsa per l'Eliseo. Le accuse nei suoi confronti, come riportato dal New York Times, sembrano del tutto infondate. Se un rapporto con la cameriera nella camera d'albergo Sofitel di New York c'è stato, sembra del tutto consenziente. E, inoltre, è stato appurato che la signora in questione ha raccontato un sacco di balle sul suo passato, come accertato dalle indagini. La donna, dopo le accuse a Strauss Khan, ha discusso al telefono con un ex detenuto, da cui ha ricevuto 100.000 dollari in questi anni, dell'opportunità di denunciare l'ex presidente dell'FMI.
Il 29 maggio scorso Putin aveva sollevato seri dubbi sulla colpevolezza di Strauss Khan, adombrando un complotto internazionale. Putin, dall'alto della sua esperienza ai vertici del KGB, disse "E' difficile per me valutare le vere ragioni politiche sottostanti e non voglio entrare direttamente nella vicenda, ma non posso credere che tutto sia come sembra e come è stato presentato. Non mi convince". Il crollo delle imputazioni nei confronti di Strauss Khan avviene due giorni dopo la nomina di Christine Lagarde a capo dell'FMI con suoni di fanfare da parte di Sarkozy che è riuscito nell'impresa di mettere la sua prediletta ministro dell'Economia al posto lasciato vacante dal nemico storico.
La prossima liberazione di DSK avviene anche, guarda caso, due giorni dopo l'approvazione da parte del Parlamento greco delle misure draconiane per evitare il default che impiccano le prossime due generazioni, ma che salvano le banche francesi in possesso di una montagna di titoli di Stato greci. Il giorno dell'arresto, avvenuto con la massima pubblicità mondiale, quasi fosse un novello Josef Mengele, DSK doveva occuparsi proprio della crisi greca in un incontro con Angela Merkel. Atene considerava l'ex direttore del FMI come un prezioso alleato per uscire dalla crisi.
Cui prodest Strauss Khan in manette e sputtanato su tutti i media? In questo caso la risposta non è difficile. Sarkozy, dopo la nomina della Lagarde, ha dichiarato "E' una vittoria per la Francia!". Vive la France et vive, surtout, monsieur Sarkozy!

Let’s Buy Back Our Government

Let’s Buy Our Government Back From Special Interests – Estimated Cost: $14 Billion

AmpedStatus, June 30th, 2011 | Filed under Feature, Hot List, News, Politics & Government . Follow comments through RSS 2.0feed. Click here to comment, or trackback.


By Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds

Anonymous Vs. The Federal Reserve (OpESR June 14th Video Announcement)Here’s a thought: let’s buy our Congress back from the special interests who now own it.

We all know special interests own the U.S. Congress and the Federal machinery of governance (i.e. regulatory capture). How much would it cost the American citizenry to buy back their Congress? The goal in buying our Congress back from the banking cartel et al. would not be to compete with the special interests for congressional favors — it would be to elect a Congress which would eradicate their power and influence altogether.

A tall order, perhaps, but certainly not impossible, if we’re willing to spend the money to not just match special interest contributions to campaigns but steamroll them.

A seat in the U.S. Senate is a pricey little lever of power, so we better be ready to spend $50 million per seat. Seats in smaller states will be less, but seats in the big states will cost more, but this is a pretty good average.

That’s $5 billion to buy the Senate.

A seat in the House of Representatives is a lot cheaper to buy: $10 million is still considered a lot of money in this playground of power. But the special interests — you know the usual suspects, the banks, Wall Street, Big Pharma, Big Insurance, Big Tobacco, the military-industrial complex, Big Ag, public unions, the educrat complex, trial lawyers, foreign governments, and so on — will fight tooth and nail to maintain their control of the Federal machinery, so we better double that to $20 million per seat. Let’s see, $20 million times 435….

That’s $8.7 billion to buy the House of Representatives.

It seems we’re stuck with the corporate toadies on the Supreme Court, but the President could scotch the people’s plans to regain control of their government, so we better buy the office of the President, too.

It seems Obama’s purchase price was about $100 million, but the special interests will be desperate to have “their man or woman” with the veto power, so we better triple this to $300 million.

Add these up and it looks like we could buy back our government for the paltry sum of $14 billion. This is roughly .0037% of the Federal budget of $3.8 trillion, i.e. one-third of one percent. That is incredible leverage: $1 in campaign bribes controls $300 in annual spending — and a global empire.

Once we bought back our government, what would be the first items on the agenda? The first item would be to eradicate private bribes, a.k.a. private campaign contributions and lobbying.

If you allow $1 in campaign contributions, then you also allow $10 million. There is no way to finesse bribery, so it has to be cut and dried: no member of Congress can accept any gift or contribution of any nature, monetary or otherwise, and all campaigns will be publicly financed.

Is this system perfect? Of course not. There is no perfect system. But the point here is that a system which allows even a $1 private contribution to a campaign cannot be restricted; after the courts have their say, then all attempted limitations prove worthless.

So it’s really all or nothing: either we put our government up for auction to the highest bribe, or we ban all gifts and private campaign financing and go with public financing of all elections in the nation.

That is the only practical and sane solution. Any proposal that seeks to finesse bribery will fail, just like all previous attempts at campaign finance reform.

Any member of Congress who accepts a gift, trinket, meal, cash in an envelope, etc. will lose their seat upon conviction of accepting the gift. Once again, you can’t finesse bribery. It has to be all or nothing, and the only way to control bribery is to ban it outright.

As for lobbying, thanks to a Supreme Court dominated by corporate toadies, it will be difficult to ban lobbying outright. However, that doesn’t mean Congress shouldn’t try to force the toadies on the Supreme Court to make a distinction between a corporation with $100 billion in assets and billions to spend on bribes and a penniless citizen.

(Those two are not coincidental; in a nation run by and for corporations, the citizens all end up penniless unless they own or manage said corporations, or work for a Federal fiefdom which can stripmine the nation at will.)

Congress should pass a law banning paid-for lobbying. If a citizen wants to go to Congress and advocate a position, they are free to do so–but they can’t accept money to do so. If they receive any compensation from any agency, enterprise, foreign government, other citizen, you name it, from any source, then they will be sentenced to 10 years of fulltime community service in Washington D.C., picking up trash, etc.

If the Supreme Court toadies strike down that law, then here’s another approach:

Require all paid lobbyists to wear clown suits during their paid hours of work.

In addition, all lobbyists are required to wear three placards, each with text of at least two inches in height.

The first placard lists their total annual compensation as a lobbyist.

The second lists the special interest they work for.

The third lists the total amount of money that special interest spent the previous year on lobbying, regulatory capture, bribes to politicos and political parties, etc.

Every piece of paper issued by lobbyists must be stamped in large red letters, “This lobbying paid for by (special interest)”, and every video, Powerpoint presentation, etc. must also be stamped with the same message on every frame.

The second item on the agenda is a one-page tax form. The form looks like the current 1040 form except it stops at line 22: TOTAL INCOME. A progressive flat tax is then calculated from that line. Once again, you cannot finesse bribery or exemptions, exclusions, loopholes and exceptions. Once you allow exemptions, exclusions, loopholes and exceptions, then you’ve opened Pandora’s Box of gaming the system, and the financial Elites will soon plow holes in the tax code large enough to drive trucks through while John Q. Citizen will be paying full pop, just like now.

The entire charade of punishing and rewarding certain behaviors to pursue some policy has to end. Any deduction, such as interest on mortgages, ends up creating perverse incentives which can and will be gamed. It’s really that simple: you cannot finesse bribery or exemptions, exclusions and loopholes, because these are two sides of the same coin.

The tremendous inequality in income, wealth, power and opportunity which is distorting and destroying our nation all flow from the inequalities enabled by bribery and tax avoidance. The only way to fix the nation is to eliminate bribery (campaign contributions and lobbying) entirely, and eliminate tax avoidance entirely by eliminating all deductions, exemptions, loopholes, etc. State total income from all sources everywhere on the planet, calculate tax, done.

When you think about how tiny $14 billion is compared to the $3.8 trillion Federal budget and the $14.5 trillion U.S. economy, it makes you want to weep; how cheaply we have sold our government, and how much we suffer under the whip of those who bought it for a pittance.

A Mass ‘Strategic Default’ Movement

A Mass ‘Strategic Default’ Movement Begins – Time to Rebel Against Economic Tyranny By Walking Away From Your Mortgage Payments (OpESR)

A Mass Strategic Default Movement Begins - Time to Rebel Against Economic Tyranny By Walking Away From Your Mortgage Payments (OpESR)As a result of fraudulent actions by the “Too Big to Fail” banks, 28% of US homeowners now owe more on their mortgage than their homes are worth. A new survey by Fannie Mae found that 27% of American homeowners are considering walking away from their mortgage.

Why should we be forced to pay an overvalued mortgage when it was the big banks who wrecked the housing market? After getting bailed out with trillions of our tax dollars, the big banks are reaping record profits and their executives are giving themselves record bonuses. Meanwhile, as they continue to push home values off a cliff, we are forced to pay for their crimes with outrageous mortgage payments and increased property taxes.

This scandalous exploitation of the American public has to stop. The time is now to strategically default on mortgage payments en masse. A National Mortgage Default Action will begin on the 4th of July. Celebrate your financial Independence by joining this movement here.

Full Call to Action:

“Here we stand on the precipice of financial and spiritual collapse. An economic virus has been allowed to infiltrate the homes of decent and upstanding people which deters us from living the way we would like. There comes a time in all of our lives where we must stand up for ourselves and our livelihoods – not only because of the crisis we are currently facing and the oppression we have been dealt; but for the livelihoods of our children, and the betterment of society as a whole.

Banks have foreclosed on millions of homes throughout the United States. These homes – now empty – were once lived in by everyday people like you and me. These American families have now been cast aside into a crumbling economy.

With long-term unemployment at an all-time high; with an all-time record number of American families now living paycheck-to-paycheck struggling to make ends meet, We The People of this great nation must unite and take our lives back; take back our self-esteem, and take back the glory that has been stolen from us via unethical means from these malicious banking magnates.

As the “Too Big to Fail” banks are bailed out with our hard-earned taxpayer dollars, we are made homeless and to suffer at the hands of tyrants.

We ask you, as the people of America: what will it take to get you to stand up and be the empowered citizen you are?

The time is now! We can be the proud Americans we should be by rising up in spirit, by making a stand and taking action. The action we propose is a mass default on mortgage payments to show these degenerate bankers that they are here to serve the public interest – not to fleece the nation and line their own pockets, while we struggle for bread and milk. In doing so, you will not be alone: there are millions of families who have questions unanswered, and mouths that go unfed.

A stunning 50 percent of US children will use a food stamp during their childhood. Millions of children go hungry in America every night because they are forced to pay an overvalued mortgage. Millions of American children go without health care and medicine because they are forced to pay an overvalued mortgage.

These tyrannical practices can not continue.

We must UNITE and take our money and power back from those that systematically and routinely run us into the gutter. We are reaching out to you in hopes that your own lives have not been tread upon to the point where you no longer have the will to fight for what is good, wholesome, and right. Please consider joining this movement by not paying your mortgage. Show the banks that they do not own us.

We do not need the banks, they need us.

Thank You People of The United States of America for your time and consideration.

Be well and happy!”

You Walk Away – How It Works



Far fronte alla crisi dell'eurozona

Interrogazioni parlamentari
21 giugno 2011
H-000250/2011
Interrogazione per il tempo delle interrogazioni
al Consiglio
Tornata: luglio 2011
Articolo 116 del regolamento
Georgios Koumoutsakos (PPE)

Oggetto: Far fronte alla crisi economica nella zona dell'euro

In linea con le priorità della Presidenza polacca, espresse in un comunicato, il governo polacco ritiene che sia indispensabile attuare un nuovo modello di crescita economica e che, per essere competitiva su scala mondiale, l'Europa non possa limitarsi a contenere il disavanzo di bilancio, ma debba necessariamente intraprendere altre azioni. Alla luce di questi elementi, il Consiglio è invitato a rispondere alle seguenti domande:

intende annunciare proposte e iniziative concrete per far fronte alla crisi economica nella zona dell'euro?

Prevede, in questo contesto, di sostenere l'emissione di obbligazioni europee?

Come giudica il funzionamento delle agenzie internazionali di rating del credito? È disposto a sostenere l'idea di un nuovo quadro normativo che ne regoli il funzionamento sul piano internazionale e l'istituzione, in parallelo, di un'agenzia europea di rating?

Lingua originale dell'interrogazione: EL

Eurons juridiska ägare

Frågor för skriftligt besvarande E-006243/2011
till kommissionen
Artikel 117 i arbetsordningen
Mario Borghezio (EFD)
Angående: Eurons juridiska ägare

På internationell nivå pågår en vetenskaplig diskussion om eurons seignorage. Med seignorage avses statens inkomster av att trycka pengar. Den är grundläggande för det monetära systemet och uppstår i samband med utgivningen av sedlar och mynt.
I dagsläget går det inte att fastställa vem som är borgenär och gäldenär i eurons cirkulationsfas. De europeiska medborgarna har dock rätt att få veta vilka som är ”borgenärer” (dvs. ägare) och vilka som är ”gäldenärer” (dvs. som inte är ägare) till den penningmängd som är i omlopp.
Kan kommissionen på ett klart och tydligt sätt ange vem som rättsligt sett är ägare till euron när den ges ut?

Euron omistamisen oikeudellinen luonne

Kirjallisesti vastattava kysymys E-006243/2011
komissiolle
työjärjestyksen 117 artikla
Mario Borghezio (EFD)
Aihe: Euron omistamisen oikeudellinen luonne

Rahoitustulosta kansainvälisellä tasolla käynnissä olevan ammatillisen keskustelun perusteella ja kun otetaan huomioon, että kyseistä rahoitustuloa kertyy koko valuuttajärjestelmään, sillä se muodostuu valuutan liikkeeseenlaskuhetkellä,
koska velkojaa tai velallista ei ole tunnistettu rahan liikkeeseenlaskuhetkellä, jolloin Euroopan kansoilla on ollut täysi oikeus saada tietää, ovatko he koko liikkeeseen lasketun rahan määrän omistajien kaltaisia velkojia vai velallisia,
voiko komissio ilmoittaa selkeällä ja lopullisella tavalla, kenelle euro oikeudellisesti kuuluu sen liikkeeseenlaskuhetkellä?
