[Editor’s note: After 813 years, the Frank Teutonic Knights, the Jewish Del Banco bankers of Venice, the Vatican and their Muslim friends have finally completed the 4th crusade and put the nail in the coffin of the Greek speaking Orthodox Christian Byzantine Empire in the name of The “Holy” Roman Empire, the Zionist Bankers of the Temple and the Sunni Herodian monarchies of the Middle East.
The torch and the remains of this once great Christian Empire , was first moved to Moscow in 1395 and finally in 1453 after the Turks invaded and took over the Haggia Sophia and the Seven churches in Revelation.
After WW1, the Bolshevik atheist Revolution, WW2 and the collapse of the Soviet Union, they believed that they had finally won this 1000 year battle and during the 1990s attempted to do to Russia what they are now doing to Greece… until along came Putin who restored sound monetary policies with a very low national debt, a gold standard through the BRICS bank, rebuilt all the churches, put Orthodox Christianity back into the schools and returned Moscow to her mission as the guardian of Theotokus.
2017 is the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Revolution and in honour of the 60 million Christian martyrs who died during this brutal and godless period in their history, a new church has been built on the grounds of the Sretensky Monastery and was consecrated on the 15th of March.
Greece like the once great Egyptian Empire which was raped, plundered, pillaged and also took 1,000 years to bring to its knees, is now a shell of what it once was, rich in in art, literature, learning, architecture and a hub of trade between the east and the west. Most of its wealth has been carted off to other places around the world and now Brussels is delivering the final blow in this yard sale. ]

It’s official: The Germans will not allow debt relief for Greece. Instead, Berlin wants to send in the repo man.
The untold story of the Greek “bailouts” is that it wasn’t a “bailout” — it was an auction of Greek assets. Real, tangible things with real, tangible value were seized in exchange for pieces of paper that guarantee Athens will be chained to Berlin and Brussels for the foreseeable future.
It’s your basic extortion racket. As one rather gloomy (but intriguing) analysis puts it:
The debt problem continues to erode the European Union from within – it is already impossible to hide, and Greek tragedy, for example, is growing.
Against this background, Germany seems to have a consensus about how to get rid of Greece with its debts and inefficient economy. The scheme of this careless schoolboy by the ear from the class, it seems, differs only in details: either to expel or allow suffering – to provoke the Maidan in Athens, and then to expel in any case.
Bavaria’s 50-year-old finance minister and CSU politician Markus Soeder became the declarant of this ‘plan B’, who stated about the necessity of ‘a plan B’.
“New billions should only flow when Athens implemented all the reforms. Even then, however, aid should only be given against a pledge “in the form of cash, gold or real estate”,” Soeder stated.
In his own way, he’s right – all conditions have been created for Maidan in Athens. Previously, the EU and the European Central Bank assessed all the Greece’s public property at 50 billion euro that does not even cover the necessary new loans on debt payments of this country (80-90 billion euro). Therefore, the collateral should be gathered from private funds through the expropriation of gold and real estate. Implementation of reforms will lead to the final death of the Greek small and medium businesses after bringing the taxation to “European standards”, and namely such steps of the Ukrainian government have led to the Maidan in Kiev in 2013 with the collapse of the ruling regime in February 2014.
A bit too melodramatic? We forgot — we are supposed to use the friendly neoliberal term for this policy of national enslavement and communal suicide: “voluntary privatization.”
Yes, we know. The poor, altruist Germans had to save irresponsible Greece. They did a fine job of it too. Fire sales always have the best bargains:
Behind the stories of a Greek economic recovery is the sad reality that everything of value in Greece has been auctioned off to the Germans and their partners in crime. Privatization is being sold as the remedy to all financial woes, while the snake oil salesmen do the exact opposite:
Oh, we’re sure that Greece will get the money it “needs”. Just after it surrenders everything of value that isn’t nailed down. Once it’s all packed up and shipped off to Berlin — thanks, “have some euros”.
Even if the Germans are acting out of kindness (they’re not), this is not a sustainable or long-term solution. It’s the exact opposite: flat-out robbery.
Privatization — the seizure of public property by private capital — is a central element of neoliberal globalization, routinely imposed not only by national governments but by supranational organizations like the International Monetary Fund, OECD, World Bank, European Central Bank (ECB), and European Commission.
Today, Greece is the epicenter of privatization. The third memorandum, signed by the Tsipras government in 2015, enabled the property of the Greek state to be given away through scandalous methods to multinational companies and other states.
The theft is not unusual. Privatization is one of the ironclad principles of neoliberal economic thinking, along with balanced budgets, independence of the ECB, prohibition of monetary financing of deficits, and close bonds with the financial markets. These principles have been constitutionally incorporated into the European edifice, codifying the appropriation and waste of public wealth, destroying human labor, and undermining the survival of our planet.
A perfect crime. After all, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs helped cook the books so Greece could join the eurozone.
This really is a golden age for international criminal cabals. Al Capone was a chump.
