TO ALL GREEKS — Time for Bold Action — the EUB and EU are out to kill YOU with money sanctions in order to regain slavish debtor submission — here is how you will beat them
The Greek people voted against austerity and the debt structure the European Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund, Greece’s International Creditors and the European Union governments were imposing. In retaliation these interests have inflicted upon Greece a policy of near total deflation, allowing only bare subsistence incomes at present prices and availability of goods foreign and domestic, prices which of course will not remain obtainable as producers no longer have the revenue to pay employees or to order new factor inputs. Make no mistake, Global Finance has declared total war against the people of Greece and the weapon they are using is as terrible and sure a mass killer and destroyer as any you can name outside of all out bombing of cities and villages. The Greeks must face this fact, maintain their resolve not to give in and, most important, respond with force that simultaneously will be a sufficiently aversive counter response that will make the EU aristocracy sorry that it chose to resort the economic terrorism of money sanctions yet also completely just and measured in the eyes of the world as an appropriate response to what the EUB and EU governments in the service of global creditors have done.
Here is what Greeks must do — with the Tisparis government or a better one:
1. To alleviate the immediate cash shortage in the household and business sectors, declare, in this national emergency, that all mortage payments, business loan payments to lending banks or international lenders be suspended for the duration of the crisis. And as part of that move the payments that are suspended will be either delayed with no additional interest or they will be payments that are forgiven and forgotten in they eyes of the Greek government depending on the duration of the money sanctions against Greeks.
2. The government will, for the duration of this emergency (and perhaps permanently), stop taxing the people in Euros but will begin taxing the people with a money-like device called a “tax-payment coupon” or more precisely “a negotiable tax-paying coupon”. These coupons will resemble money and will have the value of one Euro in the payment of taxes according to the already existing tax rate that is already denominated in Euros. The government will allow these coupons — which will be called “Apollos” after the well known figure of ancient Greek beliefs. The government will provide to every citizen on their tax rolls an amount of the Apollo which people can spend into circulation exactly as they would a dividend of Euros that they had received. The government during the emergency will allow the Apollo the status of “legal tender” — which Greeks may spend at stores or in their transactions with each other — and to their employees and churches and charities. This substitute money, this negotiable (spendable, transferable) Apollo Coupon, will circulate freely and, because all Greeks will accept it because it allows them to buy things and to pay taxes, even dealers in foreign goods will accept them, because they can be used to buy Greek goods for which foreigners still have demand.
3. Greeks must propose to Iran and Russia that these countries send their own currencies to Greece for free circulation as the international money of Greece. Iceland may also wish to join in such arrangements with Greece.
Through these devices, especially through introduction of the Apollo Coupon, the Greek economy will be able to continue its market system.
Let it be understood by all that the EUB and the EU governments are attempting to inflict mass privation, even death on large numbers of the Greek population through deflation. By doing this they have forfeited all right to consideration of prior contract. They have imposed a system on Greece –their money bought the media and the salesmen who sold the EU system and their money bought the legislators and bankers who set it up and made the decisions. Now that the system has hurt the Greeks they are now awake and paying attention and are ready to take back control of their own country and its systems of money and lending. It is a matter of survival now that they do so.
No one in the present Greek govenment is thinking like this — but the Greek people are thinking like this. They understand what is at stake. They now feel the pinch of hunger and fear from an economy intentionally ground to a halt by international finance because international finance has been frustrated in its plan for the continued plundering of Greece and the debt slavery of almost all Greeks.
And these measures, the suspension of all debt payments to banks, the providing of the Apollo coupon that is declared legal tender throughout the emergency, that can be used to pay taxes and that is completely negotiable so that hiring and food buying and rent paying can continue.
The odds are that the the EUB and the other EU governments will not consent to revision of their system to the satisfaction of Greek debtors. That will only mean that the swindlers are not willing to undo their swindle and launch more honest understandings. In that case, Greece will be free to repudiate all debts to international lenders — on the grounds that the contracts were entered into were fraudulent, that the impoverishment of Greece, the transfer of Greek wealth to international bankers and investors was the heart of the EU plan. That is legal justification for repudiation of all such debt.
When any one loans money it must always be at the lenders risk. The lender was an equal member of the contract and it was his duty as well as the borrowers to make sure that the venture being undertaken was a viable one — that there was a reasonable chance that the borrower could use the money to create goods profitable so that repayment could be made. But of course the fraud of the system was that the only money allowed was the EU and all EUs were borrowed into existence so that every euro of loan was co-created with a debt of principal equal to one euro and interest payments over time that often total more than a euro
Dick Eastman comments on “Joseph Stiglitz: how I would vote in the Greek referendum”
Stiglitz on Greece Answered
Joseph Stiglitz: The rising crescendo of bickering and acrimony within Europe might seem to outsiders to be the inevitable result of the bitter endgame playing out between Greece and its creditors. In fact, European leaders are finally beginning to reveal the true nature of the ongoing debt dispute, and the answer is not pleasant: it is about power and democracy much more than money and economics.
Comment: Money is democracy and the Greeks have none. An economy where all money for transacting has to be borrowed from international lending institutions and speculators where repayment of principal and interest are required or else a transfer of assets – is a system of slavery. Stiglitz is pretending that power and democracy and its opposite are not exactly the monetary system that corrupt politicians forced on the nation with the EU, merely one more incarnation of the the same old Bank-of-England/Rothschild system.
Joseph Stiglitz: Of course, the economics behind the programme that the troika (the European Commission, the European Central Bank, and the International Monetary Fund) foisted on Greece five years ago has been abysmal, resulting in a 25% decline in the countrys GDP. I can think of no depression, ever, that has been so deliberate and had such catastrophic consequences: Greeces rate of youth unemployment, for example, now exceeds 60%.
Comment: Yes, and?
Joseph Stiglitz: It is startling that the troika has refused to accept responsibility for any of this or admit how bad its forecasts and models have been. But what is even more surprising is that Europes leaders have not even learned. The troika is still demanding that Greece achieve a primary budget surplus (excluding interest payments) of 3.5% of GDP by 2018.
Comment: Now we come to it. Did the models they were using fail? Was this outcome really a surprise? The real assets of Greece are going into the hands of the creditors. Entire Islands have been given to creditors. Public art treasures, land, public utilities, water rights, airports, businesses, residential units — all transferred to the creditors. I say this is an outcome most easily predictable. How could any real economist — not a brainwashed yes man teaching at American universities, but real economists who know the real nature of the debt-money system and its tendency to deflation, default and transfer of real assets to the lenders. And it worked exactly as Irving Fisher, or Keynes, or Samuelson would have known it must. When all the money is borrowed with obligations created to pay that amount back plus compound interest, the result must be deflationary depression and massive default. “Europe’s leaders” — Stiglitz does not tell you that it is the Rothschild interests, the allies and instruments — the IMF, the World Bank, Goldman-Sachs, the Bank of International Settlements, the EUB and the central bank of Greece — learned long ago that this is how to plunder a country. Stiglitz does not admit the possibility that this was the design — that in this day of developed science — be it weather, or genetics or even economics — there are no mistakes or miscalculations by those with money enough to pay to have the math done, say by hiring a Larry Summers who does it willingly or a Nash who provides the formuli semi-willingly after being certified as insane for claiming that his roommates were agents put there to pick his brain. And yes, the Rothschilds instruments — Goldman-Sachs for example — are winning every hand in this crisis — Greeks are bleeding but not the creditors — and they are secure enough in the power they hold over everybody — who is going to stop them? me? you?
TPP – the end of economic national sovereignty
House and Senate in their getting up the Transpacific Trade Pact treaty have been like the Jury in the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev case where a guilty verdict was “fast tracked” through the court room with the real evidence establishing innocence and a government frame-up not even examined. In this case a robbery of political power from the people, the emasculation of their elected representatives in being able to challenge and overturn the practices of international corporations, giving power to to corporations to challenge and overturn Congressional legislation on trade, on environment, on macro and monetary policy — in international courts of what amounts to a world government over all.
Senators and Congressmen are allowed to enter this room to thumb through the “confidential” 800 page TransPacificTrade bill details of which they may glance at without taking notes. They are not allowed to discuss with the news reporters or their constituents or their colleagues. Staff may accompany the Senator but they sign documents agreeing to confidentiality. Those reading the bill are not told whether this is an early draft or the latest draft. It is merely the draft they are allowed to see. The question natually arises — who wrote the bill if the Senate and House members can’t see what is in it except in constrained browsing sessions where notes cannot be taken? Further more there is no clear idea of exactly who it is who designed this system where Congress can be overruled in its economic and environmental legislation by corporations lawers and the international machinery created by this legislation? It is not even clear who the other signatories are.
Ben Carson who is running for president has seen the media turn against him when he announced his oppostion to TTP and fast-track legislation. His reason? “I think free trade is a wonderful thing, but I think it needs to be done the right way. We are a republic, and that means that the people are in charge through their representatives, and the president is only one person. And I think we need to have much more input.
Jeb Bush speaks at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast at The New … bipartisan plan to give the president special “fast track” authority to complete the deal. .. The Clintons have historically backed free-trade deals, and as secretary of state Hillary called the TPP “the gold standard in trade agreements.” But she is running for president as an outsider and “populist” so she is waffeling with ambiguous statements issued by her campaign staff like this: ” “She will be watching closely to see what is being done to crack down on currency manipulation, improve labor rights, protect the environment and health, promote transparency and open new opportunities for our small businesses to export overseas,” On Tuesday in New Hampshire, the the candidate herself added, Any trade deal has to produce jobs and raise wages and increase prosperity and protect our security. We have to do our part in making sure we have the capabilities and the skills to be competitive.
White House spokesman Eric Schultz: “… labor, environmental and human rights concerns that many Democrats have voiced, the President takes to heart. And he would not sign a deal unless those protections are in place. If you look at the TPA agreement that was introduced in a bipartisan way in the Senate, we believe thats the most progressive in history and thats why the President is encouraged by it. … if you look at the points that are being raised in terms of human rights, environmental protections, labor protections, that those are important priorities of this President.
“Why didn’t Democrats elect Senators and Congressmen who already knew this is bad and must be fought at all costs?
There were some Dems and some GOP who sought to stop this — but when Dem Obama and Repub Boehner met they coerced members of both parties to change.
The Senate already approved Fast Track and will do it again. Now the corporations will rule which means the CEOs which means the Boards of Directors which hire them which means those who really own the controlling shares which means the Rothschilds and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army with whom we are doing business and to whom we owe our debt. Our creditors, in other words, now control whether or not we can start businesses or regulate our own national economy.
They give you two parties to choose from and scare the hell out of you with the GOP/McCain/Palin/Bush etc — so you vote for whatever Dem they shove under your nose.
To what avail?
President Obama and the leadership of both parties have used every lobbying and pressure procedure in a to pass this Jew/Communist corporate power grab of national sovereignty over economic policy and law, that gives Monsanto and China Inc. legal powers above the powers of Congress.
It’s the job of Congress to fully vet trade deals and ensure they work for everyone, not just giant corporations. And it would be a deeply irresponsible abdication of responsibility for Congress to pass Fast Track when we know the TPP is coming down the pike, especially when we know the consequences of the TPP could be disastrous.
There are too few Senators for them not all to have been bought.
First some useful quotes provided by fellow populist Mathew Francisco.
(main article follows below)
“The creation of wealth arises in three ways ; viz., transmutation, transformation, and transportation. The man who plows, sows, and reaps, is engaged in the first-named process ; the mechanic, or laborer, who adds value to the raw material, is an example of the
second ; the distribution of the products of the agriculturist,
and the skilled or unskilled workman, falls in the province of the last named.
These processes are the sole means of adding to the
stock of material wealth.
Bankers, merchants, and those belonging to what
are called the learned professions, do not add a single
penny to a nation’s stock of wealth.
The banker and the money lender merely gathers
toll from those who borrow the medium of exchange
to carry on business.”
– M W Walbert, The Coming Battle, 1899
