“Food is the big one.”

“If you don’t have food your done.”

“This country used to have 3 years of grain reserve during the cold war.”

“How much (strategic grain reserves) we’ve got now? ZERO!”

“You need food reserves.”

I agree with what he says about TPTB’s agenda at the end of the video.

H/t reader M.G.:

“Can kicking days are over……..Greece has voted No.
No more greedy gut strangle hold……the people are fed up.
The so-called close call between yes and no was eliminated in the first few hours…..
Now, here is a good summary of where everyone stands…..”


Greece-No-Referendum-Vote

The Guardian view on Greece’s no vote: eight days that shook a continent (Guardian, July 5, 2015):

The last week has seen many extraordinary things, from stiff limits at cashpoints to cross-border meddling in national democracy. Europe has not handled it well. It urgently needs to do better in picking up the pieces

Kicking the can down the road has been the cliche of choice over a slow euro crisis that has steadily strangled the life out of the Greek economy. But at some point Europe was bound to run out of road. That happened on Sunday night, when it emerged that the Greek people had said no to continuing to engage with their creditors on the same suffocating terms. Continue reading »

“How can this be right?”

Civil Asset Forfeiture: Guilty Until Proven Innocent (Drug Policy Alliance, June 15, 2015):

Imagine going back home one day to find an empty house and all your belongings gone; or even worse, imagine being in your house and having your door suddenly smashed open by law enforcement officers in masks and being told at gunpoint that your personal possessions are being taken away.

It might sound like a trailer for the latest action film, but this is what happened to Annette Shattuck, a mother of four and a registered marijuana caregiver in Michigan. As she recently testified to the Michigan House of Representatives, her house was raided in 2014 while her 56-year old mother was taking care of her children. Everything from food, electronics, and vehicles to birth certificates, cash, and social security, insurance and public assistance cards was taken and has yet to be returned. As if this weren’t enough, she was left penniless due to a $1 million hold on all her bank accounts and has been unable to access the adoption subsidy for her special-needs son. Continue reading »

rothschild

Hitler was financed by Rothschild agents.

The Rothschilds were behind the Russian Revolution and financed Stalin.

The Rothschilds were behind the French Revolution, WWI and WWII.

They are behind the financial crisis, the coming greatest financial collapse in world history and they have WW3 planned for us.

Will Putin move against the Rothschild owned Russian central bank, or not? Will he nationalize it?

Greece votes in bailout referendum LIVE UPDATES (RT, July 5, 2015):

Polling stations have opened across Greece as millions of people are expected to cast ballots on whether to accept more austerity in exchange for international aid. Recent polls have predicted a knife-edge result, with ‘Yes’ having a slight advantage.

Sunday, July 5

11:11 GMT:

Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has reiterated in an interview with Germany’s Bild newspaper that he will resign if Greeks vote “Yes” in Sunday’s referendum.

But he added: “There will not be a majority for ‘Yes’,” Reuters reported. Continue reading »

Greece-Democracy


A 21-Year-Old Greek Unloads: “I Am Terrified Of Tomorrow…It Feels Like An End” (ZeroHedge, July 4, 2015):

A letter to The FT… Presented with no comment…

Sir,

Memory. No memory of life before the financial crisis; politics has dominated it ever since. But now I can hardly remember life before Friday night. Fear. I am terrified of tomorrow, all I now see is black. Uncertainty, leading us through our days, every remainder of hope for a brighter future being destroyed by the minute. I look at my three-year-old niece, I envy her ignorance, I envy her age. I am 21 years old and the past few days I feel tired by life. A referendum that supposedly gives me the right to define my future, seems to have taken it away.

There are hundreds of people queueing at the ATMs and petrol stations, there is silence in the streets, people’s faces are frozen. This is the reality since Friday night. There are, and have been for a long time, people literally starving. However, it seems that instead of their situation improving, the rest of us will have no different a fate. Continue reading »

Varoufakis

What Stinks about Varoufakis and the Whole Greek Mess? (New Eastern Outlock, July 3, 2015):

Something stinks very bad about Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis and the entire Greek mess that has been playing out since the election victory of the nominally pro-Greek Syriza Party in January. I am coming to the reluctant conclusion that far from being the champion of the hapless Greek people, Varoufakis is part of a far larger and very dirty game.

The brilliant psychologist Eric Berne, author of the seminal book Games People Play, would likely call the game of Varoufakis and the Troika, “Rapo,” as in the rape of the Greek people and, ultimately of all the EU, Germany included. How do I come to this surprising conclusion? Continue reading »

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the Greek referendum, the 50 ways to not pay their creditors and the future for the “demerging” economy in which debts are repaid “parametrically.” In the second half, Max interviews Simon Dixon about what Bitcoin could do for Greece and whether or not, as Citi’s global chief economist says, it is the stupidest idea since Caligula made his horse a consul.

Top secret files dubbed “the British X-Files,” which UFO hunters believe could prove extraterrestrials have visited the UK, are to be released by the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

UFO researchers and a House of Lords peer have campaigned for the release of 18 files about sightings that took place in the UK more than 30 years ago. Continue reading »

Flashback:

Max Keiser on Greece: ‘The IMF is a Financial Mafia’ (April 28, 2010):

The only solution for Greece is to arrest the Goldman Sachs bankers immediately and all those involved in the fabrication of Greek economic data in 2000, when you became a member of the eurozone. The next step is to nationalize all banks like Sweden did in 1993. The International Monetary Fund is that last thing you need. You will lose your sovereignty. It exercises terrorism. You will be raped in such a way, that it will be the worst pain you have ever felt.


Varoufakis accuses Greece’s creditors of ‘terrorism’ ahead of crucial referendum (RT, July 4, 2015):

Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has described the actions of Athens’ creditors as “terrorism,” but said agreement with them was inevitable in an interview published hours before a landmark referendum to accept or reject the bailout terms.

“What they are doing with Greece has a name: terrorism,” Varoufakis told Spain’s El Mundo daily. Why have they forced us to close the banks? To make people frightened. And when it comes to spreading terror, this phenomenon is called terrorism.”

Greferendum

With 6 Hours Until The Greek Vote, This Is Where We Stand (ZeroHedge, July 4, 2015):

With just hours to go until Greeks head to the ballot box to decide the country’s fate in the eurozone, the latest polls show a nation divided with only a half percentage point separating the “no” votes from the “yes” votes.

Underscoring the ‘dead heat’ preliminary poll results, the yes’s and the no’s staged dueling protests in the streets of Athens on Friday night. All told, as many as 50,000 people participated in the competing demonstrations with PM Alexis Tsipras making an appearance at the “No” rally.

As a reminder, this is the schedule for the referendum: Continue reading »

Could deposits below €100k be protected as it happened in Cyprus? The answer depends on the total amount of deposits above €100k. If there are enough of these large deposits above €100k, then most likely any required deposit haircut will be inflicted on these depositors only. There are no recent data on how big this universe of large deposits is. The most recent data from the European Commission suggest that at the end of 2012, covered (i.e. those below €100k) represented 75% of eligible Greek deposits. We suspect this number is now significantly higher leaving little room for depositors with less than €100k to be spared.

You’ve been warned, Greece!

Flashback:

Here is what happened to Mexico:

Hedge Fund Manager Kyle Bass Explains The New World Order (Panel Presentation):

On Greece:

For those who think a 50% write-down on debt will fix Greece, you have lost your mind. It is only a full wipe-out of the non-TROIKA-owned debt that is the only mathematical way for Greece to have any chance.

Don’t believe these governments when they tell you everything is going to fine. The day before Mexico devalued by 60% they denied that they would ever devalue. They can and will never tell you the truth. Find your own numbers.

Here is what happened to Belarus:

Belarus Devalues Its Currency By 56% Overnight, Against Every Currency Out There:

Luckily for those who held their “money” in the form of gold and silver, they just got an instantaneous 56% value preservation and a relative boost in their purchasing power with just one central bank announcement.


Will Greek Depositors Under €100,000 Be Spared In Case Of A “Bail-In”  (ZeroHedge, July 4, 2015):

One week ago, we first explained that as the Cyprus bail-in “blueprint” scenario unfolds, the one final, and most important, remaining variable in the ongoing Greek drama, soon to devolve to tragedy, is how big the ECB’s ELA haircuts would be in the case of a No vote, which would be the first catalyst of a depositor haircut.

ELA Haircut vs Deposit Haircut

Then, overnight, in a report since denied by both the Greek finance ministry and by the European Banking Authority Plan, the pro-Europe FT did yet another hit piece on Greece desperate to push those Greek voters on the fence ahead of tomorrow’s referendum to vote “Yes” (just think of the lost advertising revenue if say Deutsche Bank were to go under).

The US National Security Agency tapped the telephones of 29 Brazilian government top officials as well as waged economic espionage against the country by listening in to calls of those managing Brazilian economy, WikiLeaks claims in a new release.

The list of those selected for intensive interception includes not only President Dilma Rousseff but also her assistant, her secretary, her chief of staff, her Palace office and even the phone in her presidential jet.

“This article related how communities around the world, including Fukushima, find the people to deal with nuclear disasters. Terrifying.”


BBC: People taken from movie theater by police, forced to go in reactor and deal with burning fuel rods — TV: Military picked men off street to battle meltdown — Women, minorities, homeless, and prisoners used by nuclear industry for most dangerous work (VIDEO) (ENENews, July 4, 2015):

Windscale_Movies

BBC, ‘Windscale – Britain’s Biggest Nuclear Disaster’ (emphasis added) — Tom Tuohy, deputy manager at Windscale plutonium production plant (at 8:00 in): “We were trying to push the burning fuel into the back of the reactor.” — But the heat had melted the cartridges, so they were stuck in the core… Radiation was so intense they could only work a few hours. They were running out of firefighters. — Neville Ramsden, Windscale health physicist: “The police from the [plutonium] factory had turned up looking for volunteers and they brought a bus. They decided the best way to get the volunteers was to go up to the cinema, and ‘volunteer’ the back 2 rows at the show to go… push the fuel rods out of the reactor.”

Chernobyl_Men_off_Street

Yorkshire Television, ‘Children of Chernobyl’ (at 4:00 in): “When the robots broke down because of the extreme radioactivity, men were sent in to cleanup the site. They were not volunteers. They were picked up off the streets and press ganged [i.e. taken by force] onto the roof… In 90 seconds, they received their permissible lifetime dose of radiation. The men were sent home and forgotten… They do not figure in any official casualty lists.” Continue reading »

Greek euro

This Is Why The Euro Is Finished (The Automatic Earth, July 4, 2015):

This Is Why The Euro Is Finished

The IMF Debt Sustainability Analysis report on Greece that came out this week has caused a big stir. We now know that the Fund’s analysts confirm what Syriza has been saying ever since they came to power 5 months ago: Greece needs debt relief, lots of it, and fast.

We also know that Europe tried to silence the report. But what’s most interesting is that this has been going on for months, as per Reuters. Ergo, the IMF has known about the -preliminary- analysis for months, and kept silent, while at the same time ‘negotiating’ with Greece on austerity and bailouts. Continue reading »

A Drone’s Eye View Of The Massive Numbers Behind The Greek “No” Vote (ZeroHedge, July 4, 2015):

Tens of thousands of Greeks flooded the streets of central Athens on Friday evening ahead of Sunday’s referendum.

Both the “yes” crowd and the “no” crowd were out in force with the former camped out in front of Olympic stadium and the latter in front of Parliament. Each rally boasted participation of more than 20,000 people according to local police.

“I call you to say again a big proud ‘no’ to ultimatums on Sunday,” PM Alex Tsipras shouted, in a speech to the “No” supports. “We can also say it in German: Nein, Frau Merkel, Nein,” another speaker quipped.  Continue reading »
