Arrived in Athens. Poems.

May 31, 2016

Just arrived in Athens to deposit evidence at Areios Pagos in relation to the corruption of deputy prosecutor Efstathia Spyroupoulos. Spyropoulou is now investigating Greece’s top judge following charges filed by banker Andreas Vgenopoulos. I suspect it is a  politically motivated attempt to remove an honest judge.

Readers of my blog will know Athens, a truly beautiful city, always put me in a mood of poetry.  This afternoon sitting in the café of the Acropolis Museum was no different.

 

Images
Are you watching the collapse of civilisations?
A tragedy? A comedy?
A process watched from a terrace
with a view of the Acropolis
is both sides of the coin at once.
Is it fear you feel as you look down at the city?
Filled with terrible images, people,
hopeless, homeless, begging.
Is it joy you feel as you look up
at the marble citadel perched on a rock,
Washed in the brightness of eternal sunlight?
Who can say?
Is it pain and bitterness we drink,
Or is it hope, intoxication,
as we see what we are capable of,
in a perfect marble form,
the soul’s exulting in its immortality?
Everything can break apart, crumble.
But our soul, immortal, never dies.

Edge
Crashing light,
splintering presence
around the edges,
creating a square
a shadow, a kind of stone,
out of lightning.
Is it real? Or a dream?
Edge.

DEMOCRACY HAS BEEN OVERTHROWN IN BRAZIL AS IN UKRAINE

May 31, 2016

 Paul Craig Roberts | Infowars.com –  May 30, 2016

In Brazil the country’s largest newspaper has published a transcript of a secret recording leaked to the newspaper. The words recorded are the plot by the rich Brazilian elite, involving both the US-corrupted Brazilian military and Supreme Court, to remove the democratically elected president of Brazil under false charges in order to stop the investigations of the corrupt elites who inhabit Brazil’s senate and bring to an end Brazil’s membership in BRICS. The Russian-Chinese attempt to organize an economic bloc independent of Washington has now lost 20% of its membership.

Democracy has been overthrown in Brazil as in Ukraine, Honduras—indeed, everywhere the dirty evil hand of Washington falls, including the US itself.

TSIPRAS MAY NOT GET BAILOUT MONEY AFTER FAILURE TO REFORM

May 31, 2016

From Ekathimerini.

There was fresh concern on Monday that there could be further delays in the disbursement of much-need bailout money to Greece owing to a disagreement between Athens and its creditors, who have demanded changes to prior actions passed in Parliament earlier this month.

“German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble described the decision to raise value-added tax in Greece as “economic foolishness” but noted that Athens was obliged to take that route due to a revenue shortfall.

“This is why Greece needs an effective public administration,” Schaeuble told a conference on fiscal sustainability, observing that Greek tax collection must be improved to bring in the higher revenues that are being targeted.”

WHO WILL FORCE A RECOUNT OR RERUN OF AUSTRIAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS?

May 30, 2016

Six teenagers below the legal minimum voting age of 16 years were allowed to cast votes for the presidential election in Miesenbach in Lower Austria, it has emerged.

In the meantime, the preliminary results have been published by the Ministry of Interior, reports a facebook group calling themselves “Blaue Allianz” founded about two weeks ago.

https://www.facebook.com/BlaueAllianz/timeline?ref=page_internal

The final results will be published on Wednesday.

Any legal challenge by a lawyer or a candidate needs to be submitted by midnight June 8th electronically to the Constitutional court. The amount of votes challenged has to be enough to have affected the outcome of the election. Since establishment candidate Alexander van der Bellen won with the razor thin majority of 31,000 votes, that bar should not be hard to meet.

Given the evidence of so much election fraud (there are reports of thousands of cases of data errors), the  aim surely has to be to get a recount. especially of the postal votes and rejected ballots, or a re run of the election.

Every citizen can also file charges, it seems. Every citizen belonging to every party is affected by voter fraud.


ARE THE CONSERVATIVE POPULISTS IN AUSTRIA FAKE OPPOSITION?

May 30, 2016

The Austrian Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka has indicated that the Freedom Party did not send observers to polling stations in spite of receiving invitations, reports Staatsstreich blog.

http://staatsstreich.at/oesterreich-freiheitliche-bleiben-zu-wahlanfechtung-weiter-in-deckung.html

The failure of the Freedom Party to send observers to watch the vote count is all the more astonishing since the party’s General Secretary Herbert Kickl issued a warning of voter fraud just before the election which did indeed see the establishment candidate in favour of open borders and illegal immigration elected.

Furthermore, the Freedom Party leadership has refused to say whether it will contest the vote even though there is only a window of one week from tomorrow to do so.

Sobotka has said that Austrian citizens can file charges concerning evidence of voter fraud since the country is governed by the rule of law. The voter fraud proves the opposite. I might put together the evidence of voting fraud on a page or two and file charges myself.

 

 


DID THE MINISTRY OF INTERIOR INVENT VOTES FOR ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATE OUT OF THIN AIR?

May 30, 2016

After the Austrian Ministry of Interior took its website giving real time presidential election results offline at 2 45 pm on Monday 23rd May, the share of the vote for establishment candidate Alexander van der Bellen surged to 93%, it has been claimed.

http://staatsstreich.at/geruechte-um-faelschungen-bei-oest-praesidentenwahl-platzt-die-bombe.html#more-28407

Alexander van der Bellen won nearly 170,000 of the 183,000 votes counted when the website was offline, reinforcing suspicions of election fraud.

 


MORE PROBLEMS WITH AUSTRIAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION BUT CONSERVATIVE POPULIST LEADERSHIP REFUSES TO COMMIT TO CONTESTING FRAUD

May 30, 2016

More problems with the conduct of Austria’s presidential election have emerged after three rejected ballots were destroyed in a town in Upper Austria in order to make the number of registered voters tally with the number of votes cast.

In addition, a woman in Ahorn was not allowed to vote after she was erroneously registered as having cast a postal vote.

http://derstandard.at/2000037868702/Pressekonferenz-zu-moeglichen-Unregelmaessigkeit-bei-Briefwahl

Multitudes of reports about voter fraud have emerged concerning the Austrian presidential election, which the official in charge of the elections, Robert Stein, has been unable to satisfactorily explain, including the huge rise in postal votes applied for between the first and second round of the election as well as the dramatic increase in rejected ballots in the second round.

Even the controlled mainstream media has started to ask whether Stein’s dual role as top election official and as Social Democrat politician is compatible with genuine independence.

The new conservative party Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka, appointed by Lower Austrian Governor Erwin Proell, just before the election has come under criticism for his role in vast election fraud.

However, it is not clear if the Freedom Party leadership  will contest the vote, making it vital for local organizations to contest the vote, especially the postal votes and rejected ballots, and force an election replay.

The window of opportunity to contest the vote lasts only one week from tomorrow.
