GREEK PARLIAMENT MAY REJECT EU/IMF AUSTERITY MEASURES IN HISTORIC VOTE ON WEDNESDAY: FUTURE OF EURO HANGS BY A THREAD


*Greek Prime Minister’s  majority cut to one ahead of crucial IMF and EU austerity vote in parliament on Wednesday

*Rejection of austerity package will lead to a default by Greece and eurozone exit

*Greece is set to spend 131 billion euros on interest payments to banks between 2009 and 2014 according to IMF

*Germany’s Die Welt says Germans would rise up in rebellion if they had to accept equivalent austerity measures

*Protests and strikes intensify in Athens ahead of historical vote on Wednesday that could spell the end of the euro currency

Four Greek lawmakers from the ruling PASOK party have indicated they will vote against the new EU and IMF austerity package in parliament on Wednesday.  If the Greek parliament votes against the legislation, it would pave the way for Greece to default on its debt to foreign banks and exit the eurozone in an historic victory for democracy.

Greece is set to pay a staggering €131bn in refinancing and interest payments to American, German and French banks between 2009 and 2014 , the IMF has estimated.

Prime Minister George Papandreou’s socialist PASOK party has a slim majority of only 155 deputies in the 300-member parliament. The defections of any more lawmakers may mean the government not be able to pass the new austerity measures and an implementation law on Wednesday and Thursday, which the EU, IMF and ECB are insisting on to enable the next interest payments to be made to banks on time.

The main opposition leader, Antonis Samaras, has said the austerity measures are a “medicine that is worse than the sickness they are meant to cure” and that he will not vote for them.

The draconian package of latest tax hikes and budget cuts include measures forcing people earning as little as 8000 euros a year to pay 10% in taxes to help the government meet the multi-billion euro interest payments to banks while universities close due to funding cuts.

“Crucially, bailout funds are not used to pay civil servants’ salaries and pensions, but to pay off debt held by German and French banks. According to IMF estimates, Greece will pay €131bn in refinancing and interest payments between 2009 and 2014, far more than the initial bailout loan of €110bn,” reports The Guardian.

The new austerity package is so harsh that if it were implemented in Germany, the people would rebell, Germany’s Die Welt newspaper admitted. The new Greek austerity measures would be the equivalent of German government cutting 117 billion euros from the budget and selling assets worth 555 billion worth of euros, estimated Die Welt.

Even the Greek Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos said over the weekend that the measures were “hard and unfair.”

The austerity measures would drain the economy of the last of its liquidity and bust those businesses that are still solvent. Andrew Lilico points out that the Greek money supply has  been falling at about 10 per cent a year.

The new IMF, EU, ECB austerity package comes on top of cuts that resulted in shrinkage in the economy and an increase in the country’s mountain of debt. Greece’s debt is set to rise to 170% of the GDP next year.

A 48-hour general strike is to be held in Athens tomorrow and Wednesday against the privatisations and austerity package.

Protesters outside the parliament in Syntagma Square, have said that they will block lawmakers from entering the building and voting on the austerity measures.

Greek lawmakers began debating the new austerity plans today.

If Greece does not pass the package, it will not receive a 12 billion euro installment of loans from its international bailout plan to make payments to banks in the USA, Germany and France forcing it into a disorderly default.

A recommendation by German economists to introduce an insolvency mechanism for the eurozone in autumn 2010 was buried by the German government.

The threat of a disorderly default and financial disaster is being used by banks and eurozone officials to pressure the Greeks to accept the transfer of  wealth to the banks and acceopt the loss of their souvereignty.

A disorderly default would, however, pave the way for a rapid recovery of Greece’s economy outside the eurozone.

Papandreou faced down a rebellion by lawmakers this month after making a cabinet reshuffle and changing his finance minister, but the protests by people are continuing to put pressure on parliamentarians.

Even Überbankster George Soros — who has held regular private meetings with Papandreou and who called on eurozone governments and continue to loot the tax payers to save the banks in an article in the Financial Times — was forced to admit at a discussion yesterday in Vienna that the collapse of the euro currency is likely.

The euro collapse will spell the end of the bankster’s financial eurozone empire and ambitions to loot the assets and taxes of the 400 millioon people under the pretext of having to pay the debts of governments and banks that are actually insolvent and should have been put through insolvency mechanism long ago.

The discussion on “liberal democracy” attended by Soros was hosted by Der Standard whose editor is Bilderberg attendee Oscar Bronner.

Der Standard and Bilderberg Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann is indirectly trying to boost the popularity of far right extremist Christian Strache by portraying him as the head of the anti EU and eurozone movement.

In fact, Austria’s grassroots movement against the EU and eurozone banksters rejects the racism and hysteria of the banker’s shoe-shine boy Strache as much as it does the transfers, fiscal union and billions given to the bankers by the puppets who lead the two main parties, Faymann and Spindelegger.

    This is hype. The IMF will win. IMF, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of gov’t violations of our rights:
    They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
    Impeach Obama, vote for Ron Paul.

    Did you give them your guns? I didn’t give them mine. Try and be
    patient waiting to vote for Ron Paul because I’ll be in front of you
    and I will saviour the moment.

  3. How did you Yanks find here?
    Greece military is threatening with a coup de etat in case parlament violates any basic rights while bowing down to the IMF. In the Tschech republic they made a law that people born from now on have to work until thei are 73 bevor they can go into pension. They will of course, see to it, that everybody dies shortly after having reached this age. Thats harsh austerity hammering down onto the first European countries. If you Yanks dont manage to get Ron Paul into office, it is going to hit you too soon.

    I think the IMF has planned more like this because they have 600 billlion to spend or something so Greece and Ireland will also want help probably.
    The loans should be paid at a slower rate so no economic crisis and protests and crashing economy with bankrupcy result.

    Any way… my new web page:
    Please refer any one with knowledge about centipedes to the following web page:

  9. We rush towards WW III, in case someone hasnt noticed. (See the above News Flash) USIsreal will not allow the development of a strong economic and military bloc in the east. In this case, the deafening financial jingle we are being numbed with lately, will become irrelevant…-

  10. greenberry says:

    The final purpose for it is POWER over and and control of humankind. Financial jingle-jangle are means or tools to reach that goal.
    Laws have been made making it impossible to survive or live on the planet without it. And those who are without it are in the hands of those with it. That is the direction it goes.
    According to many sources WW3 has already begun. It is only a question about DEFINITION.
    With the money tool secret weapons and space
    programs have been set up secretely behind the back of mankind creating trillions and more trillions of dollars on the way. A transformation of energy money unto power.
    That is how power is created out of thin air.
    Which simply means we are paying for our own destruction. No the globalists are not stupid.

  11. greenberry says:

    And by setting up different races and religions against each other with diversion
    and wars while they sneaking down into their already built underground bases or “caves”.
    They hoping to come out of it with even more prosperity. Just as they have managed to do before and times before that. There are a few bloodlines or inheretances that have managed
    to come out of it all right up to this day.
    Wealthier and more prosperious than ever before thru history. Somehow they seem to be imunizised to war. Like this have made
    them even more powerful thru history until today.

  12. We are going towards WAR, greenberry, there is no doubt about it. When I was four or five years of age, I lived with the certainty in my mind, that I will experience a nuclear war during my lifetime and I was convinced it is going to happen when I am 60 years old. I will turn 58 this september…-

    Where is JANE????? I am so worried for her…..

  14. dee says:

    same here….

  15. Go to Vienna and find out!
    Everytime I write Jane a email, she answers, and she does it in the same old stile and fashion she has always done. If she doesnt answer your mails, I dont know…-

  16. It is mot true that there has been no sign of Jane.. There was a sign right in the beginning of this madness. She wrote to me and I had told you so. But you did not exept it as a sign from Jane which just proofed as being right what she wrote: She cant proofe her existence on the internet. She had this problem bevor in the beginning of her carrier and she wont get into it any more. So in fact, you are disturbing her Blog with your whinching. And this person MH shows up with a diverent name all the time, to disrupt the comment section with her madness!! So dont claim you are oh so worried about Jane, when you are busy ruining her work!

    If you keep up this madness, people who want to visit the Blog and its Comment section, will go away because they will get the impression, this is a madhous. Is your purpose servered then, MH??

  17. TO EVERYBODY.
    I am here since the very beginnin of this Blog with the same pseudonym that can be traced to my real name and adress. A person apearing under various names, often under “MH”, who showed up rather recently tries to disrupt and destroy this Blog by making people believe, its not Jane Bürgermeisters Blog. I beg you to ignore such posts.,

  18. Cant you see, you psychopath, you are destroying this Blog because of a mere speculation! You are invalidating Jane B’s name all around the world with your madness. And I have challenged you repeatedly to show your true identity. like I have done, but you ignore it. My conclusion is, you are working here on purpose to destroy the credibillity of this Blog and of Jane B’s name.

    EVERYBODY!
    Please ignore posts that claim, Jane B. has vanished and that the Articles on this Blog are not postet by her.

  19. So. I have just had email communicated with Jane. You can see the communication below. And I can asure you that this is Jane. I know her from many previous emails and know her stile. The communication reads from below upwards, since it is in email answering mode:

    Dear Jane,

    thank you for your answer
    On one side, you certainly are right,
    but on the other hand, those fools ar wrecking the Blog with their suspicion.
    I do know, that in fact, even if you tried to proof your existence to them, you would fail, since it is virtually impossible to do so on the internet.
    Anyway. I am happy to have heard from you again. I pray, you are well and doing fine, considering the circumstances. As usual, your K.

    Hello Jane.
    Although I dont aprove of the direction your work has taken in the recent weeks or months, I dont want to see your work disturbed. Please Jane, cant you posts a short note of yourself on your Blog Bird Flu 666 to stopp this madness of some people there who claim, you dont post your articles yourself anymore, someone else does it?
    Its disrupting the comment section of the Blog. I tried what I could to convince those people that you are still alive and at work, but to no avail.

    Yours still: K.

  20. Read from below, since it is a back and forth Re: Re: email answering mode:

    Well, Jane,
    to tell you the truth, even people I considered old contacts of yours, like “dee”, are falling for it by now, and long standing visitors of your Blog, like a “Emanuel von der Bernt” or something like that. In other words, it seems to spread.
    But there is certainly one person fueling it all. She or he goes under the pseudonym “MH”, but, with the weeks, also used a dozen or so other names. But the truth is, and you have said that from the beginning, there is nothing one can do exept grow a brain, since there is no possibillity to proof a existence on the
    net. So truely, the only senseable reaction is “Who cares”. K

    So, MH and everybody! If this is not enough for you, I cant help you any further. Nobody can! I will just join Jane, thinking, that sensable people would not continously nagg on with such a mad racket, exept of course, they are being payed to do so or have another privat agenda.

  22. Whoever still has a problem with it all, may write a letter of complaint, or, even better, open a own Blog and write whatever articles one wishes. After I have pointed out for the last pages, that Jane is okay and further speculations of ours will only hurt her Blog, I now have written to her and posted the communication here. I will forward the original emails to anyone who cares to give me a valid email adress. This now, should be the end of it and we could either leave this Blog because we dont like it anymore, or we could stay and comment the articles as we did bevor. But of course, I am almost certain that there will be a lunatic around, who energetically digs a new hole, now that the old one has been closed….

    ONCE AND FOR ALL:

    IF YOU ARE BLIND – AS YOU SAY YOU ARE – YOU CAN’T SEE THE LOGO TO THE RIGHT – IT WAS ALWAYS THE SAME!!

    THERE WERE NO “DIFFERENT NAMES” BUT A PUTTING OF EMPHASIS ON SOMETHING – FOR EXAMPLE:
    “LET’S BE CAREFUL” IN TRYING TO STOP YOUR LIBELLOUS INSINUATIONS, YOUR INSULTS, YOUR BAD MANNERS…IN CLAIMING “JANE IS HAVING A PSYCHIATRIC EPISODE”

    YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW OFF, MR HOLUNDERSTRAUCH – SO YOU KEEP REPEATING THE SAME SLANDER AND LIES OVER AND OVER AGAIN – WHAT A BORE YOU ARE.

    ARE THE LETTERS BIG ENOUGH FOR YOU TO SEE? AND IF NOT: THE WORDS CLEAR ENOUGH FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND?

  24. MH says:

    THE QUESTION ASKED IS:

    WHO IS POSTING THESE ARTICLES?

    JANE HERSELF OR SOME SMM (SOCIAL MEDIA MARCETING) AGENCY? THERE IS REASON ENOUGH FOR THIS QUESTION TO BE ASKED.

    YOUR DISTORTIONS ARE METHODICALLY, MR HOLUNDERSTRAUCH. LIBELLING JANE AS WELL AS OTHERS.
