Stunned Greeks React To Initial Capital Controls And The "Decree To Confiscate Reserves", And They Are Not Happy

Several hours after the Greek government decreed the confiscation of local government reserves, this order has finally percolated among the population, and the response to what even ordinary Greeks realize is now the endgame, is less than exuberant. Bloomberg reports, that "as Greece struggles to find cash to stay afloat, local authorities say they oppose a government decision to use their reserves for short-term financing." “The government’s decision to seize our reserves not only raises legal and constitutional issues, but also a moral one,” said George Papanikolaou, mayor of Glyfada, the third-largest municipality in the metropolitan region of Attica after Athens and Piraeus. “We have a responsibility to serve our citizens."

Good War...Better Peace

Soon after the Allied victory in Europe, the purge of Nazi Party members from government, business, industry, science, education, and all other walks of German life commenced. While a surprising number of Nazis were allowed—even compelled—to man their posts temporarily to enable a smooth transition, all party members, high and low, were sooner or later excised from German daily life. In theory, “de-Nazification” was a simple transplanting of Nazi officials with those of democratic, socialist or communist underpinnings. In practice, the purge became little more than a cloak for an orgy of rape, torture and death.

As Gazprom CEO Arrives In Athens, EU (Coincidentally) Files Anti-Trust Charges Against Russian Giant

As the head of Russian gas giant Gazprom, Alexei Miller, arrives in Athens tomorrow (for talks with Greek PM Tsipras about "current energy issues of interest," which we suspect will include finalizing the "Turkish Stream" pipeline heralded by many as Greece's potential get-out-of-Troika-jail-card), he will face an increasingly anxious European Union. Fresh from its suit against Google, the WSJ reports, the EU's competition regulator plans to file formal antitrust charges against Russia’s state-owned gas company OAO Gazprom on Wednesday. This re-opens a suit from 2012 saying that it suspected the company of abusing its dominant position in those countries’ natural-gas supply. It appears Europe is getting nervous...

Having realized that a potential Greco-Russian pipeline deal could, according to one senior official "turn the tide"for the debt-stricken country, it appears the imminent arrival of Gazprom's CEO (as Reuters reports):

EU may convene emergency summit on migration on April 24 — source

The European Union may convene an emergency summit on the issues of migration from North Africa to the 28-member bloc already on April 24, a European source said on Monday.
Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and European Council President Donald Tusk have earlier called for holding such a meeting after a disaster on Sunday when a vessel with 700 migrants onboard capsized some 200 kilometers to the south of the Italian island of Lampedusa.
The EU needs to revise several policies to ensure an efficient response to the challenges of the Mediterranean migration and carry out measures to save people in the sea, the source told TASS.
The 28-member bloc could allocate additional funds to organize the maritime and air patrol of the Mediterranean Sea, the source said. "The solution to these issues is far beyond the competence of ministers and may demand a political decision of the heads of states," he explained.

NATO Increasingly Surrounds the “Russian Threat”. “War is Good for Business”

On Saturday, April 18th, the Commander of the U.S. Army in Europe, Ben Hodges, told Britain’s Telegraph that “There is a Russian threat,” and that “The best insurance we have against a showdown is that NATO stands together.”

Ever since the Soviet Union’s military alliance, the Warsaw Pact, dissolved in 1991, NATO has expanded eastward to Russia’s borders, and now it is preparing to admit yet another nation on Russia’s border: Ukraine. This eastward expansion broke (and breaks, since it’s continuing) a verbal agreement which had produced the termination of the Warsaw Pact (the Soviet Union’s equivalent of America’s NATO alliance).

Europe braces for messy Greek endgame

It’s still possible that Greece can remain in the eurozone — though that is no longer the base case for many policy makers. At the very least, most fear the situation is going to get much, worse before it gets any better.

No one now expects a deal to unlock Greek bailout funding at this week’s meeting of eurozone finance ministers in Riga — originally set as the final deadline for a deal. The new final, final deadline is now said to be a summit on May 11.

Activists gathered across Germany on Saturday to protest the upcoming trade deal between Europe and the United States.

Supporters of the deal say it would bring $100 billion annually for both sides of the deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only way any deal bring billions to the signers of the deal is to take it away from someone else, someone smaller.

No walls to save eurozone from ‘Greece amputation’ domino effect – Varoufakis

Those in the EU who want Greece to leave the eurozone are playing with fire, country’s Finance Minister said, claiming that no “fence” could possibly exist that would protect the union from a domino effect should Greece or any other member leave.

“Anyone who toys with the idea of cutting off bits of the eurozone, hoping the rest will survive is playing with fire,” Yanis Varoufakis told La Sexta, a Spanish TV channel. In an interview, recorded 10 days ago but broadcast on Sunday, Varoufakis warned that those in the EU who think they have been “ring-fenced” from the Greek struggle are mistaken.

Iran urges India, China & Russia to counter NATO missile system

Iran has announced its readiness to cooperate with Russia, China and India on the issue of NATO’s missile shield and related threats from the military bloc, the head of its defense ministry said in Moscow.

“I’d like to support the idea of developing multifaceted defense cooperation between China, Iran, India and Russia to counter NATO eastwards expansion and installing a missile shield in Europe,” Hossein Dehghan said on Thursday, at an international security conference in Moscow.

Hours later Dehghan was cited by RIA Novosti as saying that Russia, China and Iran may hold tri-party defense talks.

“We discussed certain aspects of regional security. It was proposed to hold a trilateral meeting of Russia, Iran and China,” Dehghan said after meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.

Conference on the Israel Lobby—Press Blackout at the Press Club

So, where were the reporters of the mainstream media? Where was C-SPAN during a week when Congress was on a holiday and their cameras were not preoccupied by Capitol Hill activities—its foremost priority? Apparently, the American people were only to see and hear the extreme views of AIPAC that do not even command the support of a majority of American Jews who do favor a two-state solution, along with a majority of Arab-Americans.

Organized by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, which was launched about thirty years ago by a British Army Officer who served in World War II and two retired U.S. Ambassadors to countries in the Middle East (wrmea.org), the day-long program at the prestigious National Press Club should have been intriguing to reporters. After all, are they not interested in important, taboo-challenging presentations on a critical dimension of U.S. foreign and military policy?

The white knight is none other than Vladimir Putin.

Greece in negotiations to obtain Russian S-300 air defense systems

Turns out it's not just Iran that's interested in the S-300--Greece, a NATO member, is looking into obtaining them too. The subject was on the agenda of Greece's Defense Minister Panos Kammenos (who, incidentally, is not a member of the leftist Syriza party but rather of a right euroskeptic Independent Greeks party allied with Syriza) during his visit to Moscow and talks with RF Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu.

Considering that Greece is under EU/ECB/IMF-imposed budgetary austerity, one has to wonder how these rather expensive weapons might be paid for. Other than cash, what might Greece have that Russia might want?

"The fact is we are not seeing any progress... So we have to look at these scenarios."

So You Want To Get Out Of The USSA -- Or EU?

Unfortunately, the USSA and other NATO countries continue to ratchet up the military pressure. USSA regular military forces have now begun to arrive in the Ukraine. Canadian troops are also being sent to the Ukraine. As the Russians watch the foreign military build-up on their border, they may very well decide at some point that enough is enough, and retaliate. If they do the risk of a nuclear war surges dramatically.

This is not an academic question. The USSA and NATO are very openly targeting the Russian government and the Russians recognize that. The USSA and NATO are the aggressors in this conflict, the violent powers behind the neo-fascist regime in the Ukraine that has unleashed a war of aggression against its own Russian-speaking population in the eastern provinces of the Ukraine.

- In service with Greece's worth of Russian weapons, including the famous s-300...
- Yes, except that there is still a system of "Thor" (tactical anti-aircraft missile complex "Kornet" anti-tank missile system) and many other systems. They will emphasize integrated into the NATO system. So, of course, we can't end the relationship with Russia.
It is widely known that we have with Cyprus General system security, and their defensive system is one hundred percent from Russia, therefore, to suspend relations with Russia in this area, we will cease to defend and Cyprus, and it is crucial for Greece.

Ukraine a Vector for GMO Poison’s Spread Through EU

Ulson Gunnar
Activist Post

When the Washington Post chooses to pen an insulting, condescending editorial targeting entire nations speaking up against Western impropriety, one can just as well assume the precise opposite of whatever narrative the Post is trying to push forward is true.

Regarding American biotech companies and their attempts to infest the planet with genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and in particular their attempts to corrupt the whole of Europe with their unwanted poison through a backdoor (Ukraine), has prompted Russia to speak up for their Eastern European neighbor. Up until the armed coup in 2013-2014, also known as the “Euromaidan,” Ukraine had adamantly rejected GMOs.

With an obedient client regime now installed in Kiev, a series of political, economic and military decisions have been made that have more or less extinguished Ukraine as a sovereign nation state...

Israel’s Nuclear Weapons Program; The Former Soviet Union As America’s New Frontier

Since Hillary Clinton announced without any surprise that she was running for president, it is worth taking a look at her record. As U.S. Secretary of State during the conflict between Russia and Georgia, Clinton claimed that the U.S. was committed to “Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” and that the “United States does not recognize spheres of influence.”

In the meantime she was pushing for the military integration of countries from the former Soviet Union with NATO. Rick Rozoff commented at the time: “Despite Clinton’s claim to the contrary, the United States most decidedly recognizes spheres of influence. In its own hemisphere – the entirety of it – in the South Caucasus and everywhere else on the planet.”

Also in the double standard category, Washington is applying sanctions on Iran for its non existent nuclear weapons, even though the Pentagon has “officially” recognized that Israel is a nuclear power.

The head of the International Monetary Fund on Thursday signalled that the IMF would not agree to let Greece delay a scheduled bailout payment, saying the Fund needed to protect its sterling reputation as a global lender.

Greece is fast running out of cash and its euro zone and IMF lenders have frozen bailout aid until the new leftist-led government in Athens reaches agreement on a package of reforms.

That has raised fears the Greek government will not be able to make its next payments to the IMF, which total some $1 billion (0.67 billion pounds) over the next month.

Kosovo’s foreign minister to be arrested if he visits Belgrade — Serbian Interior Ministry

Serbia will arrest the vice-premier and foreign minister of the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo, Hashim Thaci, on war crimes charges if he arrives in Belgrade, Serbian Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic told journalists on Thursday.
"If Thaci arrives in Belgrade, police will act according to the law and will bring him to justice," he said.
Kosovo’s Deputy Foreign Minister Petrit Selimi said earlier that Thaci was planning to visit Belgrade to attend a conference organized by the Ambassadors of Peace non-governmental public organization.
Serbian War Crimes Prosecutor Vladimir Vukcevic said that the arrest warrant for Thaci was still valid and that Kosovo’s foreign minister could be arrested in Belgrade.
Serbia considers Thaci, a leader of the Kosovo Liberation Army, to be a war criminal.

Bankrupt? Greece to Buy Russian Missiles

Just days after Russia lifted sanctions on providing anti-aircraft missiles to Iran, Reuters reports that The Greeks are in talks with Russia to purchase missiles for the S-300 defense system. Greece, a NATO member, has been in possession of the advanced Russian-made systems since the late 1990s and in a defiant show of independence towards Troika, is now negotiating with Russia for the purchase of additional missiles and for their maintenance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia may be giving Greece the additional missiles as foreign aid, to deter Europe from outright invasion or the US from a covert overthrow to keep Greece from defaulting and leaving the EU.

Thousands of Moldovan farmers have launched mass protest acts on Wednesday, demanding increases of state subsidies and compensations from the Moldovan government for the loss of the Russian market. The farmers have been barricading roads with their agricultural machinery, TASS was told by Alexandru Slusari, Chairman of the all-republican UniAgroProtect Association of Agricultural Producers.
"Many farms in Moldova are on the verge of bankruptcy, while our appeals to the government were to no avail," Slusari said. The situation in the Moldovan agrarian sector worsened after Russia imposed a ban of fruit imports last year; the collapse of the Moldovan national currency in January 2015 was the last straw.

Vladimir Putin steals the show in TIME 100 reader’s poll

Western media did their best to hide Putin’s stratospheric popularity in their assigned propaganda task of demonizing Russia and Putin over the Ukrainian Western coup , replacing the Iran nuclear weapons threat hoax with the new Russian Bear threat one.

The biggest threat to our national security comes from treasonous cliques within our own ranks and their recent marriage over that last decade into the international corporate crime syndicates.

We are not really biased here at VT. It is just a simple observation to us… it is Putin and Lavrov all the way. No one can touch them and they own this piece of history, something that the spinmeisters cannot lay a glove on.

Western publics have now alternative media sources, ranging from foreign-based professional news services to a plethora of Western-based internet sites. The alternative scope is often critical of Western government policies and capable of ably exposing ulterior, hidden political agenda. In other words, the alternative news sources are often doing the proper job of journalism that is neglected by Western mainstream media who seem to be preoccupied with advancing the political objectives of their governments – no matter how unethical those objectives are.

Putin knows about the historical Polish lands more than Poles

In an interview to the Polish newspaper Do Things a former Polish journalist regrets that it was Vladimir Putin who speaks the loudest about the Polish history of Vilnius and Lviv, notes portal kresy.pl.
Also Mariusz Max Kolonko warned against over-confidence with respect to Germany. "To count on the help of Europe is the same, as to count on the help of Germany, and we have no good historical memories associated with it," he said.
The journalist stressed that Germany has a special reason to be interested in Poland. And that Poland should be afraid of it, said the Polish portal. "Moreover, Germany has the land (in Poland) that may be their historically - as well as Poland has its (land) in Ukraine and Russia in Crimea or in Eastern Ukraine," listed Kolonko.
Therefore, according to the journalist, Poland desired weak and wild Ukraine - strong Ukraine is not in the interests of Poland, sums up the portal kresy.pl.

Change will not come from an Israeli society which “has surrounded itself with shields, with walls, not just physical walls but also mental walls.”

He sees three principles which allow “Israelis to live easily with the brutal tyranny that is the occupation”.

Hillary Clinton – the ‘Liberal’ Puppet for War

Hillary Clinton this week launched her bid for the US presidential elections in 2016.

Clinton’s Republican rivals or would-be rivals immediately fired the brickbats, accusing the 67-year-old former First Lady of being a «Washington insider» and the «embodiment of all that is wrong» in US politics.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is lambasted by Republicans as a «liberal».

Whether described as «liberal», «conservative» or «hawk» – all American presidential candidates are the same in practice. Puppets for sale.

The unintended irony of Clinton’s Republican detractors, who include rabid rightwing Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, as well as the maverick Senator Rand Paul, is that every single one of them will have to spend similar amounts of cash in their anticipated presidential campaigns.

“Operation Decisive Storm” – yet another Pentagon-style illegal war – has already plunged Yemen into the twin plagues of civil war and humanitarian disaster.

So what we have is the ‘Empire of Chaos’ ‘leading from behind’ in the war on Yemen and also de facto ‘leading from behind’ in the fight against ISIS/ISIL/Daesh; the ones doing the heavy lifting are Iraqi militias supported by Tehran. The hidden agenda is always – what else –chaos; be it across “Syraq” or inside Yemen. With an extra bonus; while Washington is engaged on striking a nuclear deal with Tehran, it also turbo-charges an alliance against Tehran using the House of Saud.

Europe will feel the influence of the Asian market on European natural gas prices in the nearest future, head of Gazprom Alexey Miller said on Tuesday.
The influence is particularly realized through swap operations, Miller added. For example, Gazprom is supplying pipeline gas to Europe where it is swapped for LNG directed to other markets, Gazprom CEO said.

IMF close to giving up on Greece after official admits bail-out negotiations are ‘not working’ and the country ‘prepares to default on next debt repayment’

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is close to giving up its role in Greece's economic resuscitation, with one senior official admitting bail-out negotiations are not working.

Poul Thomsen, the IMF's Europe Director has been quoted by the Greek media as saying he could not see a successful conclusion to the country's current bail out.

Kosovo Serbs have celebrated the Passover at gunpoint

Orthodox Serbs in Kosovo celebrated in this year's Easter under heavy police guard. Even under the protection of UN and other international organizations, the Serbs do not feel safe.
Albanians not only pollute and plunder churches and monasteries, but constantly threatened by people of faith, who are afraid for their lives. Especially in the days of the big Church holidays. And this is repeated from year to year for 16 years, since the U.S. and its NATO allies almost occupied the southern part of Serbia - Kosovo and Metohija. The colonizers did not want Orthodox culture and people who walk in their ancient temples and honor the traditions of their glorious ancestors.

After 16 years of "democracy on the American model" in Kosovo destroyed more than 20 temples and monasteries.

Israel Lobby Conference: How big is the Lobby ? VIDEO

American politicians and media have fallen captive to the Zionist network. This is a lethal ailment that afflicts the US.

C-Span refused to cover the conference? Speak of “Silencing voices of TRUTH” or any exposure of even the most legitimate and reasonable discourse about Israel — Apparently, “The invisible dictatorship (to borrow a phrase) J.I.D., which controls America certainly saw to it!”

Whether it is not already too late to do much about it, we shall see.

Let us get it out on as many Websites as possible, Twitter and Facebook it, as well. We should not underestimate the power of the internet.

Long-Term Isolation of Russia Lies Outside German Interests – Steinmeier

How the GOP Became the Israel Party

Bill Kristol and John McCain have replaced Robert Novak and Pat Buchanan in Republican foreign policy influence.

When the unexpectedly detailed P5+1 framework agreement with Iran was announced last Thursday, Illinois Republican Mark Kirk made a bizarre comment. “We all know” said the senator, that this is going to end with “a mushroom cloud somewhere near Tehran”—a result of Israel having to go to war to “clean up the mess” made by American and European negotiators. A few days earlier John McCain had expressed the wish that Israel “go rogue” and attack Iran in order to upend the Iran negotiations.

Moscow hits out as Finland and Sweden seek closer ties with NATO

Russia’s Foreign Ministry has expressed its “special concern” after Finland and Sweden stated they want closer cooperation with NATO. Both Nordic countries are not members of the alliance and Moscow says the move could destabilize the region.

Russia said it is not opposed to the countries trying to solve issues concerning security and defense themselves, saying it is “undoubtedly a sovereign right of every state.” However, Moscow sees their decision as a threat aimed against Russia.

Poets’ Talk: “Why Is This World So Sad?” And, “The Armor of God”

GC: Why is this world so sad? Do you have a religious answer? A faith-based answer?

CO: Life is suffering, and the ancient story of John the Baptist and Herod belongs to modern history…. Our “Herod” (POTUS) stands militarily above all other nations, and only Russia seems to stop the U.S. from cutting off (bombing) any head(s) our Controllers desire.

Anti-Russia Economic Sanctions Prove Western Banking System to Be Nothing but House of Cards

The European banking system is on its last legs. It’s enough for Russian to introduce a moratorium on debt payments. If Greece joins in – the collapse is inevitable. It should be taken into account that in the world of international finances such situations normally give rise to domino effect. If the European system collapses, the banks of the United States will be next.

Ukraine: The Truth Becomes Increasingly Apparent

Moscow’s official line on Ukraine–and it should not be dismissed just because that’s what it is–is that the U.S. spent about $5 billion backing “regime change” in that sad, bankrupt country, resulting in a coup d’etat (or putsch) in Kiev in February 2014 in which neo-fascists played a key role. The coup occurred because the U.S. State Department and Pentagon hoped to replace the democratically elected administration with one that would push for Ukraine’s entry into NATO, a military alliance designed from its inception in 1949 to challenge Russia. The ultimate intent was to evict the Russian Black Sea Fleet from the bases it’s maintained on the Crimean Peninsula for over 230 years.

46 Ukrainian banks declare insolvency

Dozens of Ukrainian banks have reportedly gone bankrupt over the course of one year, with Kiev having to rely on external funding from the European Union (EU) amid insufficient insurance funds.

Managing Director of the Ukrainian Deposit Insurance Fund Konstantin Woruschilin said 46 banks in the country have declared insolvency, pointing to a number of contributing factors to the high number of bankruptcy, Russia-based Sputnik news agency reported on Saturday.

Woruschilin said the main factor is “the immoral behavior of bank managers,” with a number of cases involving bank employees stealing money for personal purposes.

Other factors were a drop in the country’s exports, a decline in consumption and high production costs, according to the director.

German court shuts down anti-Israel exhibition

A German court has shut down a long-standing anti-Israel exhibition in the western city of Cologne, accusing its organizer of anti-Semitism and glorification of violence.

The German municipal court said the permanent exhibit, which displayed numerous pictures of the Palestinian children who were killed and injured during the Israeli regime’s bloody offensive against Gaza last summer, violates a law designed to protect minors.

Walter Hermann, the organizer of the exhibit, has protested for years against Israel with his exhibit dubbed the “Cologne Wailing Wall.”

Hermann, 76, whose anti-Israel campaign is named “Peace Demonstration,” told the German Express newspaper that the wanted to draw public attention to Israeli policies against Palestinian people.

Call for an International Forum (Athens 26-28/6/2015) and the establishment of a European Co-ordination of Left political parties, popular organisations and social movements fighting for exit from the European Union, the euro and NATO.

?n all European Union (EU) countries and especially those belonging to the Eurozone, vicious anti-popular policies are pursued relentlessly by the EU and its member governments: massive cuts in social spending and wages, increasing taxation for the working people and decreasing that for the rich, shameless subsidies to large corporations supposedly to create jobs that never materialize or are short-lived, privatizations and dismantling of public services and social security. The result is an exponential increase in poverty, social inequality, mass unemployment and lack of job security.

"Odious Debt" Has Finally Arrived: Greece To Write Off "Illegal" Debt

As a reminder, this is what Odious Debt is: In international law, odious debt is a legal theory which holds that the national debt incurred by a regime for purposes that do not serve the best interests of the nation, should not be enforceable. Such debts are thus considered by this doctrine to be personal debts of the regime that incurred them and not debts of the state. In some respects, the concept is analogous to the invalidity of contracts signed under coercion.

Partner or Pariah? Kerry Calls Lavrov for Help

Naming and shaming over the Iranian nuclear debacle will call out who just is the real pariah and who is the real partner to world peace.

Reading the Western news media is like swimming in a goldfish bowl. News one day gives way to some other transient story the next, and so on and on. With the result that if one were to rely on the Western media for understanding on any particular issue, there is faint chance of proper assimilation. This is because there is typically negligible context, perspective or continuity – as well as, of course, misleading spin and outright disinformation.

To illustrate: one of the most bizarre – unwittingly bizarre – recent news reports was how US Secretary of State John Kerry made an urgent call to Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. Kerry reportedly needed Lavrov for help in clinching a breakthrough in the deadlocked nuclear negotiations with Iran.

Czech government plans to register citizens for military service

The Czech government plans to create a register of citizens who could be called up for military service, in response to growing concerns over threats from Islamic State and insecurity in Ukraine, Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said on Thursday.

Sobotka said the move would not amount to the reintroduction of compulsory military service, but would be a precaution.

"Should the country be in danger in the future, it would be too late for this step," he said after a late night cabinet meeting that agreed the plan.

Other NATO members and countries across central and eastern Europe, worried about the military and political crisis in Ukraine, have made moves to bolster defenses in recent months after years of massive military spending cuts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With things heating up in Eastern Ukraine, we will probably see more Eastern European countries decide to do this.

Germany Orders 100 Tanks To "Ensure Troops Are Ready To Respond To Russian Assertiveness"

With Jean-Claude Juncker demanding a Unified European Army, it appears Germany is wasting no time in simultaneously boosting its own economy with warfare spending and comforting a 'fearful populace' with more military might. As Reuters reports, Germany plans to procure more than 100 additional Leopard 2 tanks, increasing its total Leopard 2 tank inventory by a whopping 45% a government spokesman said on Friday, as it seeks to ensure its "troops are ready for action in response to concerns over recent Russian assertiveness.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is a German company which manufactures this tank, so this spending will support the German economy, for certain.

But I have to wonder; how soon is the delivery date for these tanks?!? Because, if I were a betting woman that shortly after the tanks are delivered, that we will looking at some false flag to set off a military action against Russia.

The more rapid the delivery, the more quickly we may see military action against Russia.

NATO Conducts First Test Of "Russia Rapid Response Force"

As Russia decries Washington’s “anti-Russian” foreign policy and alleged efforts by the US to undermine the global nuclear power balance — and as Congress and NATO do their best to confirm Moscow’s fears by voting to provide lethal aid to Kiev and by conducting military exercises along the Russian border, respectively — NATO is now set to test a new “Very High Readiness Joint Task Force,” which will see soldiers from the Czech army ready for deployment within two days. The latest NATO sabre rattling also involves German and Dutch forces and, as AP reports, is set to ramp up in the coming months:

GREEK DEBT REPUDIATION: Is Varoufakis about to make a distinction between borrowing obligations and odious debt?

Some of you may remember a Slogpost here three years ago in which strong (but also very odd) allegations were made about how Berlin actually encouraged the Papandreou regime in 2009 to exaggerate the size of Greece’s debt hole. To quote the piece:

‘Somewhere in the midst of these talks, Berlin requested a smaller meeting with the Greeks. At this meeting, three sources (two Greek and one German) allege, the small German delegation made an astonishing observation: the situation would “have to look more desperate” in order to justify a bailout to the other eurozone members. That is to say, only widespread fear of the entire eurozone being damaged would get the member States to pile in with bailout monies.’

Although several German (and French) motives were involved at the time, in the light of Syriza’s recent election to power in Greece, the rationale behind this strange request is becoming a little more clear.

Deutsche Bank on brink of biggest ever Libor-rigging fine

German financial giant set to exceed $1.5bn paid by UBS over rigging of interest rate benchmark

Deutsche Bank is close to agreeing a record fine of more than $1.5bn (£1bn) over manipulating Libor, with the German financial giant also expected to plead guilty to fraud in the UK.

The bank will be one of the last to pay out in the Libor-rigging scandal, which emerged almost three years ago when Barclays blew the whistle on rigging rates.

The Financial Conduct Authority in London, as well as US regulators, are close to agreeing a fine with Deutsche Bank, which will be the biggest-ever bill for Libor.

Banks have also been fined by Dutch, Swiss, and EU regulators for manipulating benchmarks. For years, traders colluded to manipulate Libor - a benchmark that sets the interest rates for billions in financial products.

Iran – The Story behind the Story

Allowing a country like Iran destroying the US hegemon’s power base by taking a sovereign decision to abandon the dollar for oil and gas trading – no way.

It would have meant the end of the dollar as the world’s chief reserve currency, and giving up the instrument of coercing the world into accepting Washington’s dictate, the tool that serves to dish out sanctions left and right – no way!

Washington’s seemingly blind and preposterous arrogance drives the closest allies into the ‘adversary’s camp. The FED (Federal Reserve Bank) announced on 2 April 2015 that it fined the German Commerz bank with 1.7 billion US dollars for dealing with Cuba, Sudan and Iran – Washington sanctioned countries.

When even the staunchest stooges of empire seek alliances in the East, the writing is on the wall, that the economic winds are shifting, that a tectonic sea-change is in the offing and that the Iran nuclear deal, one way or another, doesn’t really matter in the foreseeable future.

Israel attacked America on 9-11-01! – Shout it from the rooftops (Part II)

It’s time for those Americans who assisted the Israelis with 9-11-01 and who covered it up to be indicted, arrested, tried and convicted for their various roles in the attack on America on 9-11-01 by Israel and its coverup.

This of course means that both of the massive American invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were based on the big lies, false-narratives and propaganda dispensed to the American masses by the Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM) and were completely illegal under international law and thereby constitute abject war crimes for which those.

Numerous former top USG Officials and Members of Congress will someday soon be made accountable for committing espionage against America related to 9-11-01, its coverup and for all their war crimes based on lying about it and falsely blaming Islamics in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Helpless lies and corruption of miserable Polish elite

Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski arrived in Kiev. He will visit the Bykivnia Grave memorial - the burial ground for about 3,500 Polish citizens, who fell victims to the NKVD, the website of the Polish president says. It turns out that "the Ukrainians liberated Auschwitz, but the Ukrainians did not shoot the Poles?" The Polish foreign minister says nothing on the subject, because he is just as corrupt as the rest of the Polish elite are.
A few years ago, Komorowski laid flowers to the memorial plate on the building of the former NKVD prison in Kharkov, Ukraine, where Polish prisoners had been shot in the spring of 1940.
By that state of things, one shall assume that it was the Ukrainian NKVD officers, who shot Poles in Kharkiv and Bykivnia, was it not, Mr. Schetyna? The Polish elite brag their historical memory, which they also sell willingly, depending on situation.

Greece urges halt to Western sanctions against Russia

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has criticized the sanctions against Russia, urging an end to the measures taken by the West over the crisis in Ukraine.

“To get out of this profound crisis we need to leave behind this vicious cycle of sanctions,” Tsipras said following talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Wednesday.

Moscow has been targeted by a series of sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union over allegations of having a role in the conflict in eastern Ukraine. The Kremlin says the accusation is “groundless.”

In a tit-for-tat move, Russia has also enforced restrictions on certain food imports from the United States, the EU, Canada, Australia and Norway.
