Tsipras Purges Greek Government of “Extremist”, “Radical”, “Militant” “Leftists” (i.e. the ones who backed the Greek people)

by Scott Creighton

What does it mean when a democracy needs to get rid of public servants who try to do what the vast majority of their constituents want them to do?

What does it mean when those public servants are described as “radical” “extremists” and “militant leftists” for simply acting in the interest of the people of a nation as opposed to that of the bankers and the elites?

This is what is happening in Greece right now.

We could develop a Conmiunisfc Cuban terror campaign in
the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in WashingtonOperation Northwoods

Face of terror?

According to the official story, Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez  (a naturalized U.S. citizen from Kuwait) pulled up in front of the Navy recruitment center in Chattanooga, TN. yesterday morning sometime around 10:45am in a silver Mustang convertible and opened fire the storefront of those offices with a number of the types of weapons the Obama administration wishes to have banned. There were between 1 and 3 people wounded at that scene with at least one shot in the foot somehow.

Then, according to the reports, Abdulazeez made his way 7 miles to the Navy Operational Support Center in that same town, busted through a security gate and attacked at least 4 Marines, killing them in the process. It is still unclear as to whether or not he took his own life. According to the official story, he drove straight there.

What do we really know? Well, we know most of crap about this guy comes from Rita Katz and Pamela Geller and we know the supposed link to “ISIS” is total bullshit. What else do we know? Let’s find out.

Real News: Protests Erupt in Athens As Greece Approves Eurozone Bailout (video)

by Scott Creighton

In this video, a Greek man (public school teacher) says ( at 2:35 mark) “We have come here to protest the austerity program of the new Greek government. Because it’s an austerity program much of the right wing and they are using the so-called “left wing” government in order to implement the program that they couldn’t do with their right wing and center wing government

Now where have you heard that before?

Banker Occupied Greece: Requiem for a Failed State

by Steve Lendman

It’s all over but the obituary. Rubber-stamp Greek parliamentarians overwhelming approved transforming the nation into a banker run colony –  by a 229 – 64 vote. Six lawmakers abstained.
Coalition partner Independent Greeks leader Panos Kammenos and likeminded party members voted “yes” after rhetorically rejecting Troika terms.
The vast majority of bailout funding goes to pay bankers and other creditors – nothing for economic recovery and growth. The price is deeper punishing austerity, greater poverty and unemployment than already, and far more human misery ahead with no end in sight.

Tahrir Arrives in Greece: Parliament Approves Austerity Deal Late, Protesters Out Immediately

by Scott Creighton

38 Syriza party members voted “NO” as they were supposed to. Yet, Tsipras and the opposition parties who had imposed austerity on the people of Greece got what they wanted; they passed the latest austerity plan in spite of it’s brutal nature and massive resistance to it from the people.

For all practical purposes, Greece is now a German colony being run by the masters of the universe through their fascist Troika team.

For us here and a few other sites across the interwebs, this is not a shock. We’ve been saying that Tsipras and the “rock star” finance minister were sheepdipped neoliberals in leftist clothing for months and that the only way out for the Greek people was going to be for them to have their own Tahrir Square moment when their rage against being duped like they were grew out of control. And here it is. (photos and videos after the break)

UPDATES from Greece: Vote Day, Tahrir Moment in Syntagma Square and the IMF Pledge that Isn’t

A man racked by shame begs for money as Greeks line up to make their small daily withdrawals from a bank

Alexis Tsipras took his case to the press last night in an hour-long interview on state TV. During that time he defended his 180 degree turn and urged the country to get behind the “irrational” Troika coup because, as he put it, “it’s the best deal Greece can get” Gone was all the pretense he displayed back when he and the rock-star pretended to want Greeks to vote “NO” on the austerity referendum. Now he demands a “YES” from Parliament on the neoliberal economic brick being dropped on the heads of the people he represents. He promised to keep the banks closed until the deal is ratified. More economic terrorism from the “hero” of Greece and the left. Like Obama siding with the republicans to get several of his previous “successes” done in congress, Tsipras looks to the neoliberal opposition parties for support getting the deal finalized.
