FTR #861 Greek Tragedy, Part 4

Continuing our analysis of the Greek economic and political crisis, we begin with review of Greece and the late stages of World War II. The occupying British turned on the partisans who had played a large part in the defeat of Axis occupation forces, setting the stage for a brutal civil war. Much of the program centers on the fire-sale of major Greek infrastructure, including the takeover of 14 regional airports by a German corporation. Much of Greek infrastructure is now up for sale, including infrastructure that is essential for the reconstruction of the economy of Greece. Having figured significantly in the development of Greek debt, a number of German businessmen are now fugitives from Greek justice, seeking to avoid prosecution for corruption charges. After noting that Greek debt is actually LOWER than German debt when calculated using a standard accounting scale, the program notes the proposal to have Greek youth work for free, in order to relieve the massive youth unemployment plaguing that country. Recorded on Labor Day weekend of 2015, the program concludes with rumination concerning the past and future of slavery, scrutinized against the background of recent and future events.


German Company Buys Greek Airports

“. . . In the early 1980s, as Chair of the Association of European Border Regions (AEBR), [German Finance Minister Wolfgang] Schäuble had organized the first economic initiatives [and not just] toward France. Theodor Veiter, a former Nazi specialist for border subversion, was one of Schäuble’s advisors as chair of the AEBR. . . .” It is against this background that we examine the purchase of Greek regional airports by a German company.

FTR #855: Greek Tragedy, Part 3

Following Germany’s implementation of an austerity program on Greece that officially and as a matter of course negates Greek national sovereignty and democracy, we examine that agreement and the history that led up to it. Even relatively conservative American and European observers are labeling the development a “coup” against Greek democracy. We would call it a foreign occupation by Germany. The events in Europe can only be understood in terms of the execution of a consummately brilliant, cynical plan to implement German political and economic hegemony through a series of wars and what Von Clausewitz called “Post-wars.” The continuity of German political, military and economic policy through decades and across a challenging diversity of events is far-sighted and rigorous. Program Highlights Include: German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble’s use of Third Reich cross-border subversion specialist Theodor Veiter as a key adviser on European economic affairs; the explicit control of Greece’s economic affairs by “the institutions” [of Germany and the EU]; Schauble’s apparent goal of driving Greece out of the Eurozone; Germany’s successful evasion of its World War II debt; an overview of the evolution of Friedrich List’s blueprint for economic and political control of Europe and the world; review of the troika’s imposition of a 2011 Greek coalition government that included the fascist LAOS party; the fundamentally different approach of German corporations to cartel agreements from that of their international partners/competitors.


Germany’s Debt is More than Double that of Greece’s!

A recent article in Forbes underscores the flawed accounting underlying the lethal fiscal policy imposed on the citizens of the “cradle of democracy.” An unconventional accounting method has been used to calculate that Greek debt is 175% of GDP, the statistical foundation for the crushing austerity that afflicts that country. In fact, it is 18%, when calculated using the standard “Ipsas” accounting method. Germany’s on the other hand, is 46%, when calculated under that standard!

Meet the New Boss(es), Same as the Old Boss(es): Poroshenko Reconstitutes “Team Yuschenko”

In FTR #781, we noted that Viktor Yuschenko–married to top OUN/B official and Reagan Deputy Director of Presidential Liaison Ykaterina Chumachenko–institutionalized the Bandera political cadre, rewriting Ukrainian World War II history and paving the way for the rise of Swoboda and Pravy Sektor. We now learn that “new” Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has reconstituted the old Yuschenko team, including American-born Roman Svarych, Yuschenko’s Minister of Justice and the personal secretary to OUN/B leader Yaroslav Stetsko in the early 1980’s.


German Economic Colonization of Ukraine

With the U.S. and Germany respectively playing Bad Cop (military aid and sanctions) and Good Cop (economic aid and resistance to further sanctions at the behest of key German corporations invested in Russia), the follow-up to the covert operation resulting in the coup d’etat of early 2014 is proceeding apace. German industry–surprise, surprise–plans to modernize Ukrainian industries and establish subcontracting arrangements to build automobiles in that cheap labor market. This will be coupled by the austerity doctrine we have termed “Von Clausewitzian economics.”


Surprise! Merkel Just Vetoed the Presidential Vote. She Has Other Plans In Mind.

If you’ve been following the upcoming EU elections scheduled for later this month and the tight race for EU Commission President. And if you’ve been following that race closely, you’ve no doubt been bored out of your mind. But at least now, for the first time ever, EU voters will get to vote for their future collective president. Then again, maybe not. Either way, big changes could be coming. Soon. .
