Austerity Riots Rage as Greece Faces Debt Default

The Greek government is prepared to lean on property owners as the nation faces default and anti-austerity demonstrations once again turn violent. A new tax will be imposed on monthly electric bills and would average about €4 per square meter and range between 50 cents and €10 depending on the neighborhood, according to the Wall Street Journal.

IMF austerity riot in Greece’s second-largest city of Thessaloniki on Saturday.

The new tax is an attempt to meet the demands of the European Commission, International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank to cut spending and tax Greek citizens to pay down a national debt exacerbated by hedge funds and financial speculation.

In order to send the appropriate message to the so-called troika of central bankers, the Greek government has decided to to expedite a parliamentary vote on its 2012 budget. Greece’s parliament usually votes on a new budget at the end of December, but foreign bankers are demanding democratic procedures be ignored and an “overhaul” of the country’s tax system commence posthaste. Eurocrats have bluntly stated that the country’s tax system will be weaponized.

The Greek cabinet has made a “symbolic move” and has agreed to cut wages on all senior elected and appointed government officials, including Greece’s president and 325 local mayors, regional governors, government ministers and members of parliament.

The empty gesture, however, is unlikely to placate the average Greek citizen. Up to 80 percent of the Greek populace does not want help from the eurozone. The debt burden now being imposed on them is the result of private deals between the government and the elite. Loans were offered by the EU and the banksters and were made at topmost levels without the input of the people. “Elites were enormously enriched. The average Greek was unaware of the damage until the bill came due. And now average Greeks are to pay for it,” writes the Daily Bell.

“The heavy-handed control of Greece is the inevitable result of accepting large amounts of low-interest loans offered by German and French banks following Greece’s entry into the European Union,” notes Bob Adelmann. “The ‘back story’ is that all of this is the result of the machinations of the EU to regionalize the members of the union into a single political body run by rulers who are appointed rather than elected.”

In July, Eurogroup President Jean-Claude Juncker admitted the IMF plan to bailout Greece is an attack on its national sovereignty. The takedown will resemble the one that privatized East Germany following the engineered destruction of European communism, he explained.

“The sovereignty of Greece will be massively limited,” Juncker told Germany’s Focus magazine as teams of “experts” were dispatched to Greece to arrange the looting of the nation’s public sector. Greece’s socialist government has agreed to establish a privatization agency under austerity plans cooked up in Brussels.

The so-called “United States of Europe” plan arranged by the globalists is an effort to undermine national sovereignty in Europe.

“European globalists are committing another act of economic terrorism by exploiting the euro debt crisis in a bid to create a ‘United States of Europe,’ with European Council president Herman van Rompuy announcing he is ready to spearhead the group, a move that frighteningly parallels plans by top Nazis, may of whom went on to found the EU, and their mission to build a continent-wide economic government,” Paul Joseph Watson wrote on September 7 after the plan was rolled out.

In 2009, World Bank President and Bilderberg elitist Robert Zoellick admitted the plan to eliminate national sovereignty and impose a global government during a speech on the eve of the G20 summit. “If leaders are serious about creating new global responsibilities or governance, let them start by modernizing multilateralism to empower the WTO, the IMF, and the World Bank Group to monitor national policies,” he said.

In addition to placating the bankers, Greek’s socialist government is attempting to calm markets worried about the spreading contagion of debt, an effort apparently destined for failure as French government officials wait for possible ratings downgrades by Moody’s Investors Service of France’s three largest banks, BNP Paribas, Société Générale and Crédit Agricole.

The French banks hold billions in Greek bonds. Investors fear even a partial default by Greece will destroy the value of those assets and undermine already weak capital positions.

Former New York Fed boss and current Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has been in regular contact with his European counterparts, repeatedly advising them to “speak with a single voice to help reduce confusion in financial markets,” the New York Times reports today.

Meanwhile, stocks in the U.S. opened lower today amid concerns that Greece is “not doing enough” to avoid default, according to CNBC.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
