A system in absolute panic

by system failure

For one more time, the Greek government has failed to stay calm. After the new bribery scandal (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/greece-another-opposition-mp-claimed.html), government officials rushed to claim that the whole case has been "set up". The Greek PM, through an unprecedented action, stated that he will sue opposition MP Chaikalis! Now, guess how justice representatives responded to the governmental sirens: They rushed to close the case! (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/12/the-greek-justice-rushed-to-close.html) Apparently, the systemic establishment is under absolute panic.

It's not the first time that the government failed to remain calm: “Instead of staying calm, the weakened government confirmed that acts under panic through further unnecessary moves. According to some information, there was a new direct intervention by the Greek PM, Antonis Samaras, signaling to the systemic media to 'troll' Alexis Tsipras, while the Deputy Prime Minister and leader of PASOK, Evangelos Venizelos, made a new request to Samaras, asking for the abolishment of the current electoral law, which was voted in the past by his party and gives 50 bonus seats in the parliament to the first party in national elections, even in case that wins the elections by one vote! The first time that Venizelos made such a request was right after the recent euroelections when SYRIZA won.” (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/09/a-new-attempt-to-domesticate-left-in.html)

The new statements and movements by governmental executives come in full contradiction with their hypocritical motivations that anyone who has something to denounce should do it through the Greek justice. These motivations were coming through cliches like "everything in the light", etc.

The government officials supported by various systemic-friendly trolls that launched the usual propaganda on the internet, should explain why they rushed to speak about "set up" concerning the latest bribery case, before justice's final decision, when in other cases they were avoiding to make any statement apart from declaring that only justice should decide.

According to some information, the government is ready to use the tactics of "artificial destruction" (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/01/the-tactics-of-artificial-destruction.html) with the help of the well-known power centers of ENEE.

According to an article at the thepressproject.gr website, there is some recent information that the government prepares an operation to withdraw deposits equal to 11 billion euros from the Hellenic Financial Stability Fund, which are bonds in electronic form, directly liquidated if necessary. Alexis Tsipras declared, according to SYRIZA's program, that he will use this amount to relief the most vulnerable who were heavily hit by the catastrophic neoliberal measures imposed by the present government. According to the same article, there is also some information about a huge operation by the German media for the detraction of SYRIZA during the next days. (http://www.thepressproject.gr/article/70578) We should assume that the propaganda by a significant part of the global mainstream media controlled by the global financial mafia will peak in case that Greece will go for national elections.

Also, the new record of 103 (!) tabling amendments passed in the parliament during the discussion of the bill Ministry of Health, which was passed by the majority just before midnight Monday, December 22, is quite characteristic. (http://www.gazzetta.gr/plus/article/683849/voyli-rekor-oi-103-tropologies-me-ena-nomoshedio)

All these facts do not only indicate the absolute panic of the Greek political class, but also that the - controlled by the big capital - decision centers, inside and outside Greece, didn't manage to "domesticate" the Left yet, as they did with Social Democrats two to three decades ago.

Whether the Left will manage to stay on its feet from the war against it, without becoming simply a "short history" or being "transformed", as many plan and wish, will be seen in practice. This will depend to a high degree on the determination of people not only in Greece, but also in Europe.

Day 1900: Julian Assange still in prison and under slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist criminals

failed evolution   On 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorian government of traitor Lenin Moreno, invited the Metropolitan Police into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they arrested Julian Assange . Since then, Assange is kept in Belmarsh high security prison in London, without actual charges.   The real reason world's number one political prisoner is still kept in this high security prison, is because he exposed horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   And the Anglo-American axis has now become officially a fascist coalition , framed by the rest of its Western pets. UK's Home Secretary Priti Patel, one of the most ruthless ever, decided to extradite Julian Assange to US. No surprise of course. The only question we had in mind is

Exposed: How Biden & Ukraine’s Fascists Worked Together to Block Peace with Russia

BreakThrough News   Newly released treaty negotiation documents show that Ukraine and Russia were very close to ending the war—more than two years ago, in April 2022. But U.S. imperialists and NATO have worked with and strengthened the right-wing in Ukraine to achieve their long-term goals in the region, including endless war, no matter how many people die. Brian Becker is joined by Eugene Puryear, co-host of The Freedom Side , to discuss the newly revealed documents showing how the Ukraine war nearly ended two years ago but were sabotaged by the intervention of the White House and the Ukrainian far-right. They discuss how Ukraine’s economy has been totally mortgaged to U.S. and European interests.

Israeli documents show expansive government effort to shape US discourse around Gaza war

As the Gaza war rages, Israeli funds target US college campuses and push to redefine antisemitism in US law   by Lee Fang and Jack Poulson   Part 3 - Substantial Israeli government involvement in American politics   Haaretz and the New York Times recently revealed that Chikli’s ministry had tapped a public relations firm to secretly pressure American lawmakers. The firm used hundreds of fake accounts posting pro-Israel or anti-Muslim content on X (formerly Twitter), Facebook and Instagram. (The diaspora affairs ministry denied involvement in the campaign, which reportedly provided about $2m to an Israeli firm for the social media posts.) But that effort is only one of many such campaigns coordinated by the ministry, which has received limited news coverage. The ministry of diaspora affairs and its partners compile weekly reports based on tips from pro-Israel US student groups, some of which receive funding from Israeli government sources . For example, Hillel International, a co-foun

Israeli documents show expansive government effort to shape US discourse around Gaza war

As the Gaza war rages, Israeli funds target US college campuses and push to redefine antisemitism in US law   by Lee Fang and Jack Poulson   Part 1 - Redefining antisemitism   Last November, just weeks into the war in Gaza, Amichai Chikli, a brash, 42-year-old Likud minister in the Israeli government, was called into the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, to brief lawmakers on what could be done about rising anti-war protests from young people across the United States, especially at elite universities. “ I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again now, that I think we should, especially in the United States, be on the offensive,” argued Chikli. Chikli has since led a targeted push to counter critics of Israel. The Guardian has uncovered evidence showing how Israel has relaunched a controversial entity as part of a broader public relations campaign to target US college campuses and redefine antisemitism in US law. Seconds after a smoke alarm subsided during the hearing, Chikli assured the l
