TSIPRAS HAD FULL KNOWLEDGE OF SECRET DRACHMA COUP PLAN, MUST RESIGN

July 31, 2015

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has confirmed he had full knowledge of a secret plan to reintroduce the Drachma and ordered Mr Varoufakis to take charge.

Tsipras must now resign.

If he had full knowledge of the plan to reintroduce the Drachma, why did he not pose the question in the referendum on July 5th?

Why did Tsipras not ask the Greek people, do you want to stay in the euro or do you want my plan for a Drachma?

Why did he chose instead to place on the ballot a question on an irrelevant bailout option?

The answer is obvious. Polls have consistently shown that the Greek people would not have backed a switch to a Drachma.

http://greece.greekreporter.com/2015/05/05/poll-66-5-of-greeks-prefer-the-euro-over-drachma/

So, under the pretext of allowing Greeks to choose their policy options using a referendum and direct democracy, Tsipras, in reality, subverted the ability of the Greek people to make a meaningful choice by withholding from them the key question. That is, do you want euro or my government’s Plan B for a Drachma?

In addition, Tsipras has to explain why his plan to reintroduce the Drachma was kept secret for months of bailout negotiations when annoucing a plan to revert to the Drachma would have been a big bargaining chip in those negotiations.

The answer, again, is obvious. An announcement of the plan would have brought transparency. Transparency would have led to scrutiny. Scrutiny would have revealed it was a disastrous way of reintroducing the Drachma.

This deliberately flawed, disastrous method of introducing the Drachma could only be carried out in the form of a sudden coup. That is what Yannis Varoufakis attempted when he announced on the evening of the referendum result the introduction of the Drachma on his terms.

Thirdly, Tsipras has to explain why he did not take up the offer of Germany and the European Commissio  to organize an orderly exit from the eurozone.

The German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble even offered a temporary, five year Grexit.

Angela Merkel made it plain in her speech to the German parliament that a third bailout, funded by German taxpauers, was preferable only to the chaos which would have resulted from a lack of a viable Grexit plan.

There was no need for Tsipras or Yannis Varoufakis to keep this plan secret from the peoeple or parliamant of Greece. Tsipras had no right to keep it secret.

It turns out the only people who were informed about the plan were international hedge fund managers. But hedge fund managers and bankers, who stand to profit handsomely from a botched Drachma, are not the people who should be able to influence the introduction of that Drachma.

Varoufakis even discussed a criminal plot to hack tax files to effect a switch to the Drachma. He admitted, he did not have the resources to carry ou this plan. Creating parallel tax files is a tiny part of introducing a new currency. It is all about grabbing money from Greeks, not about creating a stable currency for trade.

Yet, Varoufakis went on TV after the referendum and announced he would introduce the Drachma knowing he had none of the resources to do so.

In addition, it is absolutely not necessary to arrest a central banker or raid reserves in order to introduce a new currency. A central banker can be charged, put on trial and arrested before or after for their role in the fractional reserve banking fraud, but that is a separate matter.

The introduction of a new currency benefits from political stability, international support and transparency.

Tsipras and Varoufakis deliberately and wilfully planned in secret together with other highly knowledgeable economits like James Galbraith to introduce a faulty Drachma at a time of capital controls, and so to destroy the Greece’s new currency at birth. They did this to profit the international hedge fund managers and bankers, who could have bought up all of Greece for pennies. Indeed, these hedge fund managers were their closest allies.

Industry Payments To Doctors Are Ingrained, Federal Data Show

From npr:

All told, 1,617 companies reported 15.7 million payments valued at $9.9 billion. Nearly all of those payments — 14.9 million — were classified as “general payments,” covering promotional speaking, consulting, meals, travel and royalties. They totaled $3.5 billion over the 17-month period.

UK DOCTORS COULD BE ORDERED TO DECLARE FINANCIAL TIES TO BIG PHARMA AFTER NHS MANAGERS CAUGHT IN DRUGS FOR CASH SCANDAL

July 30, 2015

From The Telegraph:

Doctors and health officials could be ordered to declare any financial ties to pharmaceutical companies under plans being considered by ministers.

NHS England said an investigation by The Telegraph into senior staff receiving money from drugs firms raised the question of whether the Government should legislate for full disclosure of payments made to health professionals. Jeremy Hunt, the Health Secretary, is understood to be considering a new law.

Multiple inquiries were launched by the NHS yesterday into revelations by The Telegraph that health service staff are being paid thousands of pounds by drug companies lobbying them to use their products.

The undercover investigation disclosed how senior health officials who help decide which drugs are used by GPs and hospitals are being paid to work as consultants for pharmaceutical companies who want the National Health Service to “switch” to medicines they produce.

New vaccines for Ebola, HIV and malaria can spread diseases, say experts.

July 30, 2015

Patients vaccinated against malaria, HIV and Ebola are left contagious and at risk of infection to others, says a study published in PLOS Biology.

From the Washington Post:

“Highly contagious, Marek’s disease didn’t used to be deadly. But now chicken farmers see increasingly virulent strains in their broods. The vaccine keeps chickens from getting sick, but unvaccinated chickens are getting sicker than they used to.

Read and his colleagues don’t know whether the vaccines for the disease actually caused more virulent strains of the illness to develop. It’s not a clean-cut evolutionary partnership the likes of antibiotics and antibiotic resistant bacteria.

But according to their research, however those more dangerous strains have developed, it’s the existence of the vaccine that allows them to continue existing.”

New aerolised Ebola vaccine is likely infectious

July 30, 2015

From The Economic Times:

Previous studies with primates suggest that aerosols of most biothreat agents, which are particles dispersed in the air, are infectious.

Recent studies show that contact with the Ebola virus through the mucus membranes that line the respiratory tract results in infection, suggesting that airway linings may be important portals of entry for the virus.

“A needle-free, inhalable vaccine against Ebola presents certain advantages. Immunisation will not require trained medical person ..

VAROUFAKIS FACES CRIMINAL PROSECUTION OVER SECRET PLANS TO DESTROY GREECE’S CURRENCY

July 29, 2015

*VAROUFAKIS HATCHED SECRET PLANS FOR A PARALLEL CURRENCY WITH INTERNATIONAL HEDGE FUND MANAGERS

*PLANS FOR CHAOTIC INTRODUCTION OF FLAWED PARALLEL CURRENCY WOULD HAVE LED TO INFLATION AND MASS IMPOVERISHMENT

*INFLATIONARY PARALLEL CURRENCY WAS TO BE INTRODUCED AT A TIME AS STRICT EURO CAPITAL CONTROLS ARE IN PLACE IN DOUBLE WHAMMY TO GREEK ECONOMY

*US ECONOMIST JAMES GALBRAITH PART OF CLANDESTINE GROUP

Yanis Varoufakis could face criminal charges for his involvement in a secret plan with international bankers to draw up a parallel currency system, which would have led to the mass impoverishment in Greece if implemented.

http://www.straitstimes.com/business/former-greek-finance-minister-varoufakis-faces-criminal-prosecution-over-secret-currency

The beneficiaries of a chaotic introduction of a flawed parallel currency are the hedge funds, pension funds and bankers because  an inflation prone currency can destroy an economy in weeks, allowing bankers to buy up assets for pennies.

http://www.ekathimerini.com/199945/article/ekathimerini/news/varoufakis-claims-had-approval-to-plan-parallel-banking-system

Tellingly, Varoufakis discussed his secret plans in a teleconference call with managers of hedge funds allegedly headed by former British Chancellor of the Exchequer Norman Lamont.

It has also emerged that US economist James Galbraith was a member of a secret group led by Varoufakis planning for a deliberately chaotic and flawed introduction of a parallel currency.

http://www.politico.eu/article/varoufakis-secret-working-group-tax-greece-money-bailout/

Varoufakis ordered a childhood friend and now professor at Columbia University to “hack” into government computer systems to gain access to  taxpayer information and duplicate files for use under a parallel system.

There were also plans to arrest the central bank chief and raid the reserves, both media stunts which would have led to an immediate and global collapse in confidence in any new currency in Greece.

The Greek economy would have been destroyed by euro capital controls on the one hand, and an inflationary currency without legitimacy on the other.

This disastrous plan was to be implemented overnight by Varoufakis without asking the Greek people, and following a referendum asking an incomprehensible question about an irrelevant bailout document.

This secret plan was to be implemented when the European Commission and Germany had Grexit plans, including support for balance of payments. This, when Iceland has produced a detailed policy document on introducing souvereign money and when members of Syriza tabled a motion to introduce sovereign money.

European Commission has detailed Grexit plan

July 19, 2015

A report on how to deal with Greek exit from the euro has been compiled by European Commission officials.

The report examines around 200 issues that could arise from a Grexit, “including potentially devastating social consequences,” according to Kathimerini newspaper.
