One 77-year-old’s search for the truth: 9/11, election fraud, illegal wars, Wall Street criminality, a stolen nuke, the neocon wars, control of the U.S. government by global corporations, the unjustified assault on Social Security, media complicity, and the "Great Recession" about to become the second Great Depression. "The most important truths are hidden from us by the powerful few who strive to steal the American dream by keeping We the People in the dark."

"Washington is brewing armageddon. But Greece can save us. All the Greek people need to do is to support their government and insist that their government, the first in awhile to represent the interests of the Greek people, give the finger to the corrupt EU, default on the debt, and turn to Russia." -- Paul Craig Roberts
Like Marathon, Thermopylae, Plateau and Mycale roughly 2,500 years
ago, Western freedom again depends on Greece. Today Washington and its
empire of European vassal states are playing the part of the Persian
Empire, and belatedly the Greeks have formed a government, Syriza, that
refuses to submit to the Washington Empire.
Few people understand that the fate of Western liberty, what remains
of it, is at stake in the conflict, and, indeed, the fate of life on
earth. Certainly the German government does not understand. Sigmar
Gabriel, a German vice-chancellor, has declared the Greek government to
be a threat to the European order. What he means by the “European
order” is the right of the stronger countries to loot the weaker ones.
The “Greek crisis” is not about debt. Debt is the propaganda that
the Empire is using to subdue sovereignty throughout the Western world.
The Greek government asked the collection of nations that comprise
the “democratic” European Union for one week’s extension on the debt in
order for the Greek people to give their approval or disapproval of the
harsh terms being imposed on Greece by the EU commission, the EU
Central Bank, and the IMF with Washington’s insistence.
The answer from Europe and the IMF and Washington was “NO.”
The Greek government was told that democracy doesn’t apply when
creditors are determined to make Greek citizens pay for the creditors’
mistakes with reduced pensions, reduced health care, reduced education,
reduced employment, and reduced social services. The position of the
Empire is that the Greek people are responsible for the mistakes of
their foreign creditors, and the Greek people must pay for their
creditors’ mistakes, especially those mistakes enabled by Goldman Sachs.
As has been proven conclusively, the Empire’s claim is false. The
austerity measures that have been imposed on Greece have driven down the
economy by 27%, thus increasing the ratio of debt to GDP and worsening
the financial situation of Greece. All austerity has accomplished is to
drive the Greek people further into the ground, thus making debt
The Empire rejected Greece’s democratic referendum next Sunday,
because the Empire doesn’t believe in democracy. The Empire, like all
empires, believes in subservience. Greece is not being subservient.
Therefore, Greece must be punished. The Persians Darius and Xerxes had
the same view as Washington and the EU. The Greek government is supposed
to do what previous Greek governments have done, accept a pay-off and
allow Greece to be looted.
Looting is the only way left for the Western financial system to make
money. In pursuit of short-term profits, western corporations,
encouraged and coerced by the financial sector, have moved offshore
western industry, manufacturing, and professional skills such as
information technology and software engineering. All that remains for
the West are highly leveraged derivative bets and looting. Apple is an
American corporation, but not a single Apple computer is made in the US.
The German, French, and Dutch governments together with Washington
and the western financial system have come down in favor of looting.
For a country to be looted, its people’s voice must be silenced. This
is why the Germans and the EU object to the Greek government handing the
ability to decide the future of Greece to the Greek people.
In other words, in the West today, the sovereignty of peoples and
accountability of governments are inconsistent with the financial
interests of the One Percent who control the financial and political
To conclude: If democracy can be destroyed in Greece, it can be destroyed throughout Europe.
The Greek people not only hold in their hands the fate of democracy
in the West, but also the fate of life on earth. Washington’s mechanism
for creating conflict with Russia is the EU and NATO. By violating
agreements made by previous US governments, Washington has brought NATO
to Russia’s borders and is currently deploying more troops, armaments,
and missiles on Russia’s borders, all the while speaking aggressively
Russia has no alternative but to target these insensible military
deployments. As military deployments rise and the irresponsible and
totally inaccurate Western propaganda against Russia and Russia’s
government escalate, war can launch itself.
Clearly Washington and its vassal states have eschewed diplomacy and
instead use demonization and attempted coercion to force Russia to
accede to the Empire’s will.
This reckless policy continues despite the many warnings from the
Russian government to the West not to deliver ultimatums to Russia. As
empires are characterized by arrogance and hubris, the Empire doesn’t
hear the warnings.
Recently we have had from Washington’s stooge prime minister in
London British threats against Russia, despite the fact that the UK can
deliver no force against Russia and can be destroyed in a few minutes by
Russia. This kind of insanity is what leads to war. The crazed
British prime minister thinks he can call out Russia.
Washington is brewing armageddon. But Greece can save us. All the
Greek people need to do is to support their government and insist that
their government, the first in awhile to represent the interests of the
Greek people, give the finger to the corrupt EU, default on the debt,
and turn to Russia.
This would begin the unravelling of the EU and NATO and save the
world from armageddon. Most likely, Italy and Spain would follow Greece
out of the EU and NATO, as these countries also are targeted for
merciless looting. The EU and NATO, Washington’s mechanism for creating
conflict with Russia, would unravel. The world would be saved and
would owe its salvation to the ability of the Greeks to realize what
really is at stake. Just as they did at Marathon, Thermopylae, Plateau
It is difficult to imagine another scenario that would save us from
World War III. Pray that the Greeks understand the responsibility that
is in their hands not merely for liberty but also for life on earth.
