That is a landslide result for the government, which had urged people to reject the bailout proposals made by lenders.

LANDSLIDE VICTORY FOR DEMOCRACY

It is also a landslide victory for DEMOCRACY. The country that invented democracy has just showed the world how powerful it can be. And why the governments world-over are scared of it even if preaching it.

When was the last time we have had a national referendum on any subject in this country (USA), for example?

The answer: NEVER!

The Founding Fathers did not want to empower the American people with a plebiscite option, either. That’s why they invented the Electoral College and proportional representation, with no term limit for senators or congressmen. So that the powers that be could control the power of the people. The rest was rhetoric intended to pull the wool over the people’s eyes.

Those who cast the votes decide nothing; those who count the votes, decide everything,” Joseph Stalin was credited as saying.

Our American version of a demo farce this would translate into:

Those who cast the vote decide nothing; those who pick the candidates decide everything (Truth in Media, 2000)

No Vote Wins 2Not so in Greece. Greece is now the only country in Europe in which the government and the people are united. Which is probably ringing alarm bells in Brussels, Berlin, London and Washington.

What if other nations copied the Greek example? One could just see the banksters and the politicians running for the holes in the wall like rats.

NOW WHAT? DARE WE HOPE FOR A NEW DAWN?

Over a late Sunday breakfast, Elizabeth asked me what would happen next.

“Will Greece now leave the Eurozone?”

“It depends. There are two possible outcomes,” I replied. “Yes, that would be one.”

The other possibility is that the bankers blink and give in. Which is what the Greek government has been hoping. Now armed with support of the whole country, their hand at the negotiating table has been strengthened immensely.

“You know the old saying,” I said, “if you owe a bank $100,000, the bank controls you. But if you owe the bank $100 million, you control the bank.”

“And Greece owes the banks 100 times that amount,” I said.

It will be very difficult for the global and European banksters to walk away from Anthony_McAuliffe€242.8 billion ($271 billion), the Reuters estimate Greece’s foreign debt to be.

More importantly. if they did, it could encourage other countries around Europe and the world to follow the Greek example and, like General McAuliffe’s reply to the Germans’ ultimatum at Bastogne (Belgium, 1944), say “nuts” to the banksters ultimatums.

Either way, it is the start of a new dawn in Greece now, both literally and figuratively. And dare we hope in the world, too?

“Zorba the Greek”: Tribute to Greek Democracy

GREEK DANCING ON MAUI AND IN SCOTTSDALE

Our Offering of Love and Solidarity with the Greek People

While Elizabeth was cleaning the house after our Fourth of July party, I sat down and spontaneously started to play the Mikis Theodorakis’ unforgettable theme song from the 1964 film “Zorba the Greek.” It was our offering of love and solidarity with the Greek people on this important night in their history.

We also did that at the Rainbow Shower, Maui on the eve of 11-11-11. So rather than make a new recording of it, here’s now again that video of Elizabeth and me doing our unrehearsed Greek dance for the first time. Just like Anthony Quinn and Alan Bates did it in “Zorba the Greek.” Except that we danced to the sound of my prerecorded music on the Steinway and bouzouki.

This afternoon, on a spur of a moment, I recorded this tribute to Greek democracy and all the men and women who said OXI (NO-N€IN) today to the global bankers’ ultimatums…

UPDATE JULY 6, 2015

GREECE JUST TAUGHT CAPITALISTS A LESSON ABOUT WHAT CAPITALISM REALLY MEANS

I have already shared these comments with my friend Lincoln privately. But here are they now also for all to see.

 
Bob Altzar Djurdjevic:  Re: “And Greece just called Germany’s bluff. “
 
Germanys is not the IMF. Angela Merkel was simply used by the global bankers as their high profile “front man.”
* * *
 
Re: “The risk absolutely should not be borne by central banks that rely on taxpayer money for bailouts.”
 
Tell it to Washington and the other stooges of Wall Street banks.
* * *
 
Re: “Italy, Spain, and Portugal are now watching Greece closely and thinking, hey, maybe we can get out of this mess, too.”
 
Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: Right on. That’s what I also said in my yesterday’s editorial (see http://wp.me/3QU1S).
 
Finally, the one thing the author of this article did not talk about is that there may be alternatives to euro for Greece: Russian endorsement for BRICS bank, as I also said several weeks ago in another TiM editorial.
* * *
 
Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: Furthermore, the Kremlin has just issued a brief statement on the telephone call between Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras and Russian President Vladimir Putin:
 
On Greece’s initiative, Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with Prime Minister of Greece Alexis Tsipras.
 
Mr Putin and Mr Tsipras discussed the results of the Greek referendum on international creditors’ conditions for providing financial aid to Athens, and discussed several matters concerning further development of bilateral cooperation.
 
Mr Putin expressed his support for the Greek people in overcoming the country’s current difficulties.
* * *
 
Bob Altzar Djurdjevic:  And, as expected (see http://wp.me/3QU1S), the global bankers are starting to pull in their horns… “The IMF has taken note of yesterday’s referendum held in Greece. We are monitoring the situation closely and stand ready to assist Greece if requested to do so,” said Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), in a statement.

ECHOES OF “WALL STRET FINANCIAL TERRORISM“-COLUMN FROM 17 YEARS AGO 

Greek crisis header 7-04-15

TOMORROW, GREECE VOTES IN REFERENDUM ON E.U./IMF LOANS

Greek Solidarity Rallies in London, Dublin, Paris, Brussels, Rome

Greece’s finance minister Yanis Varoufakis has compared the action of his country’s European creditors to terrorism. The outspoken minister told El Mundo that the country’s lenders were trying to instill fear.

What they’re doing with Greece has a name — terrorism. What Brussels and the ‘troika’ want today is for the yes (vote) to win so they could humiliate the Greeks.

Why did they force us to close the banks? To instill fear in people. And spreading fear is called terrorism.

The “troika” refers to the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and the European Commission.

Varoufakis also said he was sure of reaching an agreement with Greece’s creditors if the country votes NO.

Because there’s too much at stake, as much for Greece as for Europe, I’m sure. If Greece crashes, a trillion euros – the equivalent of Spain’s GDP – will be lost. It’s too much money and I don’t believe Europe could allow it.

Now, as the Greeks mull over their precarious situation, they might take comfort in the fact that they are not alone.

No, I am not just referring to the Greek-solidarity rallies that are taking place today across Europe – in London, Dublin, Paris, Brussels, Rome. The current situation in Europe reminded me of my March 1998 column “Wall Street’s Financial Terrorism.” It fits the Greek crisis to a tee. Here are some excerpts so you can be the judge:

“Parallels between the British Empire and the New World Order Empire are striking. It’s just that the British crown relied on brute force to achieve its objectives, while the NWO elite mostly use financial terrorism (except for occasional raw power demonstrations, such as in the Gulf War or in Bosnia). The Great Asian Banking Crisis (of 1997) has just accentuated both the similarities and the differences between the two empires.NWO_humaniratian_mission

The British Empire was built by colonizing other countries, seizing their natural resources, and shipping them to England to feed the British industrialists’ factories. In the wake of the “red coats” invasions, local cultures were often trampled and replaced by a “more progressive” British way of life.

The Wall Street-dominated NWO Empire is being built by colonizing other countries with foreign loans or investments.

When the fish is firmly on the hook, the NWO financial terrorists pull the plug, leaving the unsuspecting victim high and dry. And begging to be rescued. In comes the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Its bailout recipes – privatization, trade liberalization and other austerity reforms – amount to seizing the target countries’ natural and other resources, and turning them over to the NWO elites – just as surely as the British Empire did by using cruder methods.

“We cannot help but question the IMF’s attitude. The IMF is acting as if it is an economic conqueror,” the governing Grand National Party of Korea declared on December 4, 1997. Korean newspaper headlines also lamented the country’s humiliation over the $57-billion IMF rescue package. “South Korea has virtually lost its economic sovereignty for the next three years,” said the Joongang Ilbo.

In the wake of the IMF invasions, local cultures are also under assault world over, just as in Queen Victoria’s time, being replaced by the “more progressive Western” (read materialistic) way of life.”
