When the British royals met the Greek Corbyn: Dosser Charles meets parasite Tsipras

The official visit of Prince Charles to Greece, a source of pride for the “far left” SYRIZA government, signifies that colonialism is alive and well, and here to stay.

The foreign monarchy imposed on the Greek body politic was a cancerous import, just like the IMF is in our days. It never really gained social roots and after more than a century and a half was deposed in a referendum, one of course that was honored.

What Prince Charles and Alexis Tsipras have in common is more than meets the eye. Both have never held down a steady job, both are in awe of the Muslim religion and Muslim migrants, both love money and being in the limelight, and both are “eco-friendly” but love big business. In essence, they are the modern version of the narcissist who, like a leech, is actually a burden on society as a whole and shouldn’t be provided with any airtime as they suck it dry.

For over a century, royalism dominated Greek political affairs. From the time the bigger European powers – Russia, France and Britain – joined forces to help in the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in the battle of Navarino in 1827 during the Greek revolution and war of independence, foreign affairs in Greece has been dominated by foreign supervision or direct involvement.

The classic all-time case in point was the Don Pacifico Affair. A small time nickel and dime merchant born in Gibraltar, Don Pacifico later became the Portugese consul in the time of German-born “Greek” King Otto. Don Pacifico claimed compensation for the damage to his house and managed to get a Royal Navy ship under Lord Palmerston to seize Greek ships and property to the value of Pacifico’s property.

The blockade of Piraeus (the first of many such blockades by British imperialism) created a diplomatic rift amongst France and Russia, who were joint protectorates of newly “independent” Greece. After a five hour debate, Palmerston then PM of England summed up imperialism as such: “As the Roman, in days of old, held himself free from indignity, when he could say, Civis Romanus sum [I am a Roman citizen], so also a British subject, in whatever land he may be, shall feel confident that the watchful eye and the strong arm of England will protect him from injustice and wrong.” In short, do as you please but if you happen to have any alleged Brits in your midst who have claims against you, watch out – we will come and get you.

During World War I, Greece tried to remain neutral, but to no avail: it was bombed, blockaded, and starved to submission by the Allied forces that converted small neutral states into an appendage of one of their cannons. The “Greek” royals – then allied with Germany – refused to support the war on behalf of the Allied powers, and as result a city like Thessaloniki was bombed to smithereens, forcing Greece to officially join the war.

By an irony of history, probably to avoid new allied bombardments, Greece joined the Allied powers early during World War II, when the Greek dictator Metaxas said “oxi” (“no”) to the Italian invasion and brought about the first defeat of World War II for the Axis powers. During this period, Frederica became Queen of Greece and was influenced particularly by British and U.S. foreign policy, subsequently playing a role both during the German occupation of Greece and during the Greek civil war, where she gave cover to the Greek quislings of the Third Reich that Churchill elevated from obscurity. These elements have been maintained in prominent positions of power in Greece ever since.

Greeks fought to obtain a constitution and democratize public life, but at every twist and turn the monarchy blocked democratic change. After the war, thousands of Greek patriots were executed and all the neo-colonial arrangements of bombing Greeks – with napalm and later via accession to NATO – were done with the monarchy’s full support and agreement.

As mentioned earlier, the foreign monarchy imposed on the Greek body politic was a cancerous import, just like the IMF. It never really gained traction in Greece and was eventually deposed by the Greeks themselves. It’s therefore no coincidence that Prince Charles makes a three-day official visit to Greece on behalf of the globalist paymasters he supports – and no coincidence that Tsipras enthusiastically agreed to it. It’s to remind Greeks colonialism is here to stay in the form of the “Memoranda of Understanding,” which far from ending in August of this year, are here to stay, as they will control the Greek economy for well into the next century.

Charles’ three-day official visit

Despite his mother never visiting Greece but having visited more than half the planet throughout her reign, Charles has kept a connection with the country, visiting the autonomous holy region of Agion Oros – a favorite haunt of Putin. The Greek media, trying to pretend the Greek political class is anything but totally and irrevocably subservient to foreign powers, reported that President Prokopis Pavlopoulos – who is referred to by many in Greece as “Paki” Pavlopoulos for his love affair with all things migrant and Muslim – allegedly made reference to the “Elgin” marbles. Hence, they avoided a trip to the Acropolis, instead choosing to visit a migrant center in Iraklion, among other tourist sites (such as Knossos) to see how they can turn a dime. Eat your heart out Helena Smith, Charlie boy beat you to it and free on the Greek state.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall visited Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. Prince Charles loves promoting mosques in the UK and abroad…

Who is Prince Charles?

Charles originates from a long list of parasites exported from medieval Germany in the era where land dominated economics. He has spent most of his adult life commercializing the Royal family, and as such is considered to be one of the corporate globalist elites with offshore trusts, multi-million pound businesses, and politically correct philosophies (pseudo-ecological and pro-Mosque building). After Elon Musk’s promotion of Greece, Charles entered the fray, scheduling an official state visit supported by the “far leftist” SYRIZA. Who would have believed it? An institution long dead in Greece, as anyone today who is 45 years old doesn’t even know that Greece had a monarchy, but SYRIZA is always good in bringing back zombies from the past, like they recently did with an alleged British far right group called Combat 18.

Taking into account he comes from a country that has seen over one million British people using food banks, while his promotion of Mosque-building in the UK has obviously aided in the mass migration that Britain has witnessed (over 8.4 million foreign born citizens since 1990), and accordingly, the extensive drug and rape gangs that have plagued most parts of the country. But hey, we allegedly travel with our private toilet seat and have enough courtiers to fill a bus who also prepare our toothpaste for us.

Charles’ “ecological” credentials are indeed remarkable – such as the fact that he doesn’t like to use other facilities so ships his own wherever he goes ahead of his arrival, following in the footsteps of Saudi royals. But hey, no need to worry about the excess use of carbon footprints. This is Charles we are talking about, a pampered, self-styled philosopher who should have been out to grass from the moment he was born.

During his visit, Charles met Greece’s Defense Minister Panos Kammenos, sending out obvious signals to the sultan Erdogan to behave. Charles also visited a British Royal Navy ship, one of those that when not being used to bomb poor Arabs, has been utilized as a taxi service for mass “refugee” migration, as noted in the press.

In order to publicise Prince Charles’ visit, the government-backed faux-radical “Rubicona” group “attacked’” Oxfam’s headquarters in Athens’ Victoria Square, allegedly over the pedophile issue that has erupted within the organization, though they have never showed such compassion or interest when Greek girls have been raped, tortured, or killed by migrant hoodlums whom they support in arriving to Greece, no questions asked.

Not short of a financial scandal or two, Charles’ companies invest in offshore businesses that are in the Paradise Papers. The actual family have been plagued with a modern version of the collapse of the Tsarist autocracy (when Rasputin called the shots) in the form also of a fortune teller of Greek origin, now deceased, called Madame Vasso.

Madame Vasso, who became a confidante of Princess Fergie with her Pyramid.

Fergie’s scandals and perpetual divorce could obviously not be repeated by Princess Diana when she went through the same type of divorce with Prince Charles. There are of course many allegations she was bumped off by the “Firm,” and it was the Queen of England who once said to Princes Diana’s ex-butler Paul Burrell, “[t]here are powers at work in this country about which we have no knowledge.”

This is the type of sewage SYRIZA likes to hang out with, and their representatives were on the neoliberal, oligarch-owned, and freshly-licensed Skai TV, fawning over Charlie boy’s visit. Charles, true to form, visited the ex-“King” of Greece Constantine, a detested individual who sued the Greek state via EU courts for loss of buildings and land when deposed, winning tons of money against the Greek taxpayer. Charles also met with the alleged leader of the Greek “opposition” party New Democracy Kyriakos Mitsotakis, whose family which were closely related to the Bushes, as is noted in the memoirs of the now-deceased Barbara Bush – who incidentally also had a close relationship with Diana.

This whole spectacle obviously aims to further the foreign-owned tourist industry of Greece, which is majority-owned by a German-British conglomerate known as TUI, sending a message once more to the world that Greece is “open for business” and everything is well. The visit also aims to raise the geopolitical role of Greece on behalf of the U.S., which is in full-scale retreat from the Middle East and doesn’t want other regional powers (such as Turkey and Iran) to fill the void. Or as Trump recently admitted, “We have spent $7 trillion with nothing to show for it.”

Foolish French President Macron tests Trump’s patience (Video)

The Duran – News in Review – Episode 149.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

US President Donald Trump was ridiculed for his nationalist agenda by the very unpopular, globalist French President Emmanuel Macron, in a very public display of disrespect towards the United States and its president.

Macron, in front of world leaders brought together to commemorate the end of World War I, thought it wise to chastise Trump for his ‘America first’ policy, stating that nationalism was “tearing the world apart.”

Trump did find Macron’s smart ass tone to his liking, tweeting out his feeling the minute he landed stateside by reminding his European peers who pays the bills to keep the peace on the continent.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris reflect on Macron’s diplomatic gaffe, which Trump is unlikely to forget anytime soon.

Macron showed his boyish diplomatic skills, for which a man like Trump will make sure a heavy price is paid. The French President will certainly be at the receiving end of a very public and embarrassing dressing down at the hands of Donald Trump.

What was supposed to be a solemn visit to honor the 16 million soldiers who died during World War I alongside a coterie of world leaders in Paris was overshadowed by a mini-scandal surrounding President Trump’s missing an Armistice ceremony at an American military cemetery for purely cosmetic reasons (Trump reportedly didn’t want to get his hair wet during the ceremony which was held in pouring rain, though the White House maintained that he missed the beginning of the ceremony for security purposes).

Given the media’s focus on Trump’s purported vanity at the expense of nearly every other detail from Trump’s visit, it’s hardly surprising that the president has returned to the US rather agitated, and decided to lash out at his European partners in a series of tweets Monday morning.

While he said that his meetings with fellow world leaders were productive, Trump noted that it’s “never easy” to raise the issue that the US foots most of the bill for military protections in Europe thanks to its outsize shouldering of the cost burden of funding NATO.

Adding insult to injury, the US is paying “hundreds of billions of dollars” for the privilege of “losing hundreds of billions of dollars” with these countries on trade. Trump demanded that, going forward, the US must be treated fairly on military spending and trade.

It is time, Trump said, for these countries to either pony up, or find a way to start protecting themselves.

Midterm Elections: A Disaster Denied, and What is Coming

The Democrats intend to mount a non-stopping offensive against the President.

The Duran

Published

Authored by Jeremiah Johnson (nom de plume of a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces ) via SHTFplan.com:


Before the 2016 Presidential Election, and both before and after the inauguration, I wrote specifically about how important the midterm election would be, and the results if the President should lose even one House of Congress.  That happened: the Republicans just lost the House of Representatives. Now that the Democrats control it, not one piece of legislation will pass that is on the President’s agenda. In the supreme act of denial, the Republican party claims the “Blue Wave” was not successful; even the President declared a “victory” with the midterms.

Nothing could be further from the truth, on either count.

The Democrats intend to mount a non-stopping offensive against the President. First, they are going to demand that Mueller go on the attack again. They are already demanding the President’s tax returns. On Thursday, 11-8-18, thousands of people marched in Times Square in New York City in protest of Jeff Sessions’ departure from the White House…although Sessions was the one who tendered a letter of resignation. The mob of protesters carried mass-produced “No one is above the law” placards and signs.

Not one of those Marxists carried those signs when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton resigned after Benghazi, where a U.S. Consular Outpost of the United States was destroyed, and the U.S. Ambassador and four of his staff murdered.

“Happy Veterans’ Day” is coming up, with the cliché eternal: “Thank you for your service.”

Nobody really cares about it, except the vets. Those who have to work receive time and a half for their pay, and Hallmark makes about another $50 million or so on the cards and gifts…about $10 million of that for the Government to “re-ingest” with the taxes….another day on the endless cycle:

The cycle of spending of disposable income, an indispensable part of the economy and all of the governmental employees on paid federal holiday, solemnly dispensed of at the expense of (to paraphrase Metallica) the government’s “disposable heroes.”

Where were the protests in the streets after Benghazi? Everybody was hidden, because at the time we were under Obama. When Donald Trump was elected President, a “hiatus” was granted from the nonstop march toward socialism/communism that reached a zenith as never before. Now that hiatus is shrinking, as the Communists and Marxists begin new offensives under their playbook “Rules for Radicals,” offensives targeting every area of the society.

Their plan should be obvious: to keep the President “backpedaling” and the economy faltering, in order to set the stage for the 2020 election. All of this I have written about before, and it came to pass with the Midterm elections. If they keep the President on the defense and keep pushing the “social issues,” it will render his administration ineffective…not delivering the change back toward the right that the voters wanted to see in 2016.

The Wall Street Journal published a piece on November 9 entitled Democrats plan to pursue most aggressive gun-control legislation in decades.” They have been receiving plenty of help on this one, with the Synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, and the recent murders by a former Marine last week. Here they come again! All of the legislators…with armed protectors paid for by you, mind you…clamoring for the guns. Here’s a piece of it for you:

Democrats say they will pass the most aggressive gun-control legislation in decades when they become the House majority in January, plans they renewed this week in the aftermath of a mass killing in a California bar. Their efforts will be spurred by an incoming class of pro-gun-control lawmakers who scored big in Tuesday’s midterm elections, although any measure would likely meet stiff resistance in the GOP-controlled Senate. Democrats ousted at least 15 House Republicans with “A” National Rifle Association ratings, while the candidates elected to replace them all scored an “F” NRA rating. “This new majority is not going to be afraid of our shadow,” said Mike Thompson, a California Democrat who is chairman of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force. “We know that we’ve been elected to do a job, and we’re going to do it.”

Now of course the argument to this rationale will be that the Senate is needed before a law passes. Yes, we all watched “Schoolhouse Rock” and learned about the three-party system of checks and balances. The problem?  Nothing was accomplished when the Republicans held both houses of Congress, and the Reds and Blues counter one another, and more:

The Democrats’ strategy is not to pass any laws: it is to stir up public controversy, win support of the “Zero” generation, and either force actions through the “tyranny of the majority,” or make it so horrible an arena that it detracts from or prevents any positive efforts and actions from the administration…setting the stage for the 2020 election.

Ocasio-Cortez just entered the House of Representatives at the “sage/sagacious” age of 29, and she is a self-described “democratic socialist” who favors single-payer healthcare, gun control, abolishing border controls, and declared that she would support the impeachment of the President. She was also part of Bernie Sanders’ campaign movement in 2016.

Lenin espoused some “gems” that should be considered. Here is one that falls in line with the “newly discovered wonderful possibility of socialism” the Zero-generation and twenty-somethings have fallen in love with hook, line, and sinker:

“The goal of socialism is communism.”

New York just placed a “democratic socialist” in the White House…a declared socialist, among all of the hidden Marxists camouflaged under the “progressive” or “democratic” monikers.

Gun control, coming at us once again, and once more, a quote from Lenin for you:

“Disarmament is the ideal of socialism. There will be no wars in socialist society; consequently, disarmament will be achieved. But whoever expects that socialism will be achieved without a social revolution and the dictatorship of the proletariat is not a socialist. Dictatorship is state power based directly on violence. And in the twentieth century – as in the age of civilization generally – violence means neither a fist nor a club, but troops. To put “disarmament” in the program is tantamount to making the general declaration: “We are opposed to the use of arms.” There is as little Marxism in this as there would be if we were to say: “We are opposed to violence!” – Lenin, “The Disarmament Slogan,” from October of 1916

The next two years should be interesting, to say the least. Keep in mind: the President is not throwing in the towel, however, he has one more year to turn the tide…before he has to campaign. There is still another way, though: I mentioned it in the last article that I wrote. Bush Jr. used this technique successfully when he was trailing Kerry in the polls. Margaret Thatcher used this technique when she was about to be shown the door, and turned it around, remaining in office.

The “technique” is a war, whether a “quickie” (such as the Falklands War…Malvinas, if you prefer), or a protracted one (Iraq “II” where victory was declared within months of started, and it was achieved…with the decades and a half of Military Industrial Complex contracts…and the transition of the United States into a Surveillance and Police State).

The technique is a war, and if you keep abreast of what is going on, you will see that Russia and China are gearing up for a war, the nations are “decoupling” themselves incrementally from the dying fiat-backed Petrodollar, and North Korea is once again raising itself as a nuclear threat (on its own, or encouraged by one or more nations). A war could either suspend elections, or propel the incumbent into a victory based on the populace’s perception of what they need. Remember this last quote from Lenin, and let it sink in good:

“A standing army and police are the chief instruments of state power.” – Lenin, State and Revolution, 1917

The ultimate truth: the elections are akin to the Stock Market, the Dow-Jones Industrial Average. It doesn’t matter how many shares are bought or sold, as long as there are fluctuations and flux. The winners are the brokers, who pocket their commissions on every trade…a sell or a buy. The same exists here. The blue donkeys versus the red elephants. The “tribalism” of men, and their needs of a social order…a cohesive social grouping that reflects what they believe in…is exploited to its maximum advantage. All the while, the paradigm shifts almost imperceptibly, until before you know it….twenty years have elapsed, and you are not looking at the same country anymore.

The “art” is to make the people think they will be getting what they want…dupe them into believing it is something good, when it’s not. It took the blood of heroes to form and defend this nation.  The downfall is precipitated by traitors from within…bleeding the nation white by circumventing existing laws and replacing them with the greatest injustice and threat to personal liberty of all. What is that greatest threat? A foreign enemy? A spontaneous collapse of everything?

No. The greatest threat is the acceptance of the people of the illusion of “social justice,” that really translates into something for nothing by taking from those who have earned, and giving it to those who live within the entitlement cesspool of their own sloth. Such a mentality pervades our society today. In order to save the United States, we have to return to our fundamental values and become an ass-kicking, straight-shooting people who fear God and care for their families, neighbors, and nation once more. If we do this, we may emerge from the coming night as a nation once more. Ready your NVGs, and steel your hearts for the challenge before it arrives…now…at the twilight’s last gleaming.

May Veterans’ Day bring remembrance to your mind, may your heart find peace, and may any who serve in your family be safe and sound.

Russia’s Next Weapon: A Church

The Russian military plans to build a military church to bolster the spiritual values of its armed forces.

Authored by Michael Peck via The National Interest:


Meet Vladimir Putin’s newest weapon: a church.

The Russian military plans to build a military church to bolster the spiritual values of its armed forces. Construction will soon begin of the Main Church of the Armed Forces, to be erected in Patriot Park outside Moscow, according to Colonel General Andrei Kartapolov, deputy defense minister and chief of the armed forces’ Main Military-Political Directorate, a new organization responsible for political education of the troops.

The “new church will be one more example of the people’s unity around the idea of patriotism, love, and devotion to our Motherland,” Kartapolov told Russian journalists.

To say the church, dubbed by some as the “Khaki Temple,” will have a martial air would be an understatement.

“The walls of the military church are really made in the color of the standard Russian missile system and armored vehicle,” according to the Russian newspaper The Independent [Google English translation here ] “…From the inside, the walls are decorated with paintings with battle scenes from military history and texts from the Holy Scriptures. The projected height is 95 meters [104 feet] and is designed for 6,000 people.”

“Kartapolov is convinced that the modern Russian serviceman cannot be shaped without shaping lofty spirituality in him,” Russian media said. “Speaking about ideology, the deputy head of the military department pointed out that this will be based on knowledge of the history of our Motherland and people and on historical and cultural traditions.”

“Even though the Russian constitution states that ‘no ideology may be established as state or obligatory,’ the Kremlin continues to search for a unifying set of beliefs,” notes the U.S. Army’s Foreign Military Studies Office.

Religion has long played a role in Russian military life, first through the Russian Orthodox Church in Tsarist times, and then—in a secular way—through Communism in Soviet times. “In late imperial Russia, when they began to build garrisons, every regiment sought to build a regimental church, but not a synagogue or mosque,” Roger Reese, an historian at Texas A&M University who has written books on the Tsarist and Soviet armed forces, told the National Interest. “In Putin’s Russia, the Orthodox Church seeks every opportunity to represent itself as the national religion and tie itself to the state as it had under the tsars, so this act represents continuity broken temporarily by the Soviet years. Of course the Soviet regime did not build churches for the army, but it did build the ‘House of the Red Army,’ shaped like a star, in Moscow dedicated to the use of the Red Army and its soldiers.

In some respects it was analogous to a USO [United Service Organization that supports American soldiers] building. So Putin’s dedicating one particular building to the use of the Russian Army soldiers for purposes of morale—and morals—is in line with that.”

While the thought of a military church will be distasteful to some, Russia is hardly unique in linking the military and religion.

Many armies, the United States and Israel included, maintain chaplains who wear uniform and hold military rank. Chapels are common on military bases, and soldiers are given time for – and sometimes pressured to – attend religious services. While a Russian military church is likely to favor a specific denomination – Russian Orthodoxy – even that isn’t unique: non-Christian members of the U.S. military have complained of religious discrimination , especially by Christian fundamentalists.

What’s interesting is how little things change. Be it the Tsar’s conscripts, or the Red Army’s draftees or the volunteers who comprise much of modern Russia’s military, some spiritual reinforcement is deemed necessary to get soldiers to fight.
