Obama is freaking out that Greece will join the China/Russia camp. US setting up task force to help Greece with its debt

US President Barack Obama and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew are setting up a US “Task Force” of debt experts that plan to be in Athens to help mediate the current Greek – Brussels debt relief stand off. The fear that Greece may move over to the BRCIS camp is prompting Obama to do whatever is necessary to find a solution to Europe’s latest financial crisis.

The US has clearly understood what is at stake with the new government in Athens if a solution to Greek debt cannot be found.

After President Barack Obama’s statement on Greek debt (made during his CNN interview) called for relief not more austerity, the US President is now aiming to send a team to Athens in order to discuss the debt burden in more detail with the SYRIZA government.

According to various Greek government sources, the US team will consist of high level American officials from the United States Department of the Treasury, who are well versed in the ongoing Greek debt crisis, and participated in previous missions with Joe Biden and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew.

The US team, or “Task Force,” will aim to undertake and mediate discussions between Athens and Brussels, in order to find a workable, mutually beneficial solution to the Greek debt crisis…and put an end to the constant ‘can kicking’ that has ravaged Greek society under the burden of EU austerity for the past eight years.

Why the sudden US interest? The answer is China, Russia and the BRICS world order, which is a natural fit for Greek growth and and prosperity outside the framework of the EU dictatorship model.

On his first official state visit to Cyprus, new Greek PM, Alexis Tsipras, had this to say when asked about the possibility of receiving financial support from Russia…

“We are in substantial negotiations with our partners in Europe and those that have lent to us. We have obligations towards them. Right now, there are no other thoughts on the table.”

The key word in Tsipras’ statement being “right now”.  If no solution can be found with Athen’s western/EU partners, then a pivot towards Euroasia and the BRICS nations is a distinct possibility.

Tsipras made it crystal clear that without Greece and Cyprus, both the European Union and the Eurozone will lose its geo-political southeastern flank. Greece and Cyprus are key anchors of stability in a region surrounded by color revolutions, ISIS, and constant war.

A few hours after these statements, the US announced its plans to set up it’s Greek debt “Task Force”.

The time of arrival for the American experts to Athens – according to senior officials at the US Treasury – will depend on talks between President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, set to take place in Washington next Monday.

After reading the article in this link about the funding for Syriza by a certain Hungarian born, US naturalized oligarch (who famously brought down the British Pound years ago), our hopes for the future of Greece post-January 25 may be misplaced. I’m certainly wary given the first few steps taken by the new P.M.

Both Obomber & his puppet Merkel have an agenda; it will be more of the same! More debt, more cuts to Pensions, social welfare, health care etc. the only way out of this EU Bankster debt spiral is to leave this EU disaster before Greece is totally destroyed. The EU has lost its Ethos and no longer cares about anything but the Corporate entities that bribe the EU political elite so they will do the bidding of this modern version of a Mediaeval aristocracy. Either Greece leaves or commits suicide! The choice is there , there are no alternatives. Regards……Abe

The EU doesn’t care about the wellbeing of its citizen. Economic geopolitical issues are dominating the agenda.
In case the Geek parliament will turn down the austerity proposal the ultimate plan to keep Greek in the EU will be a kind of Kiev/Maidan scenario not immediately but after some other efforts.

EU leaders dictate Brexit terms to Theresa May (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 115.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss how EU leaders have agreed on a plan to delay the the Article 50 process which effectively postpones Brexit beyond the 29 March deadline.

The UK will now be offered a delay until the 22nd of May, only if MPs approve Theresa May’s withdrawal deal next week. If MPs do not approve May’s negotiated deal, then the EU will support a short delay until the 12th of April, allowing the UK extra time to get the deal passed or to “indicate a way forward”.

UK PM Theresa May said there was now a “clear choice” facing MPs, who could vote for a third time on her deal next week.

Theresa May outlines four Brexit options, via Politico

In a letter to MPs, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May set out the four options she believes the country has in light of Thursday’s decision by EU leaders to extend the Brexit deadline beyond next Friday.

The U.K. is faced with a four-way choice, May wrote late Friday.

The government could revoke Article 50 — which May called a betrayal of the Brexit vote; leave without a deal on April 12; pass her deal in a vote next week; or, “if it appears that there is not sufficient support” for a vote on her deal in parliament next week or if it is rejected for a third time, she could ask for an extension beyond April 12.

But this would require for the U.K. taking part in European elections in May, which the prime minister said “would be wrong.”

May wrote that she’s hoping for the deal to pass, allowing the U.K. to leave the EU “in an orderly way,” adding “I still believe there is a majority in the House for that course of action.”

“I hope we can all agree that we are now at the moment of decision,” she wrote.

US media suffers panic attack after Mueller fails to deliver on much-anticipated Trump indictment

Internet mogul Kim Dotcom said it all: “Mueller – The name that ended all mainstream media credibility.”

RT

Published

Via RT


Important pundits and news networks have served up an impressive display of denials, evasions and on-air strokes after learning that Robert Mueller has ended his probe without issuing a single collusion-related indictment.

The Special Counsel delivered his final report to Attorney General William Barr for review on Friday, with the Justice Department confirming that there will be no further indictments related to the probe. The news dealt a devastating blow to the sensational prophesies of journalists, analysts and entire news networks, who for nearly two years reported ad nauseam that President Donald Trump and his inner circle were just days away from being carted off to prison for conspiring with the Kremlin to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Showing true integrity, journalists and television anchors took to Twitter and the airwaves on Friday night to acknowledge that the media severely misreported Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, as well as what Mueller’s probe was likely to find. They are, after all, true professionals.

“How could they let Trump off the hook?” an inconsolable Chris Matthews asked NBC reporter Ken Dilanian during a segment on CNN’s ‘Hardball’.

Dilanian tried to comfort the CNN host with some of his signature NBC punditry.

“My only conclusion is that the president transmitted to Mueller that he would take the Fifth. He would never talk to him and therefore, Mueller decided it wasn’t worth the subpoena fight,” he expertly mused.

Actually, there were several Serious Journalists who used their unsurpassed analytical abilities to conjure up a reason why Mueller didn’t throw the book at Trump, even though the president is clearly a Putin puppet.

“It’s certainly possible that Trump may emerge from this better than many anticipated. However! Consensus has been that Mueller would follow DOJ rules and not indict a sitting president. I.e. it’s also possible his report could be very bad for Trump, despite ‘no more indictments,'” concluded Mark Follman, national affairs editor at Mother Jones, who presumably, and very sadly, was not being facetious.

Revered news organs were quick to artfully modify their expectations regarding Mueller’s findings.

“What is collusion and why is Robert Mueller unlikely to mention it in his report on Trump and Russia?” a Newsweek headline asked following Friday’s tragic announcement.

Three months earlier, Newsweek had meticulously documented all the terrible “collusion” committed by Donald Trump and his inner circle.

But perhaps the most sobering reactions to the no-indictment news came from those who seemed completely unfazed by the fact that Mueller’s investigation, aimed at uncovering a criminal conspiracy between Trump and the Kremlin, ended without digging up a single case of “collusion.”

The denials, evasions and bizarre hot takes are made even more poignant by the fact that just days ago, there was still serious talk about Trump’s entire family being hauled off to prison.

“You can’t blame MSNBC viewers for being confused. They largely kept dissenters from their Trump/Russia spy tale off the air for 2 years. As recently as 2 weeks ago, they had @JohnBrennan strongly suggesting Mueller would indict Trump family members on collusion as his last act,” journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted.

While the Mueller report has yet to be released to the public, the lack of indictments makes it clear that whatever was found, nothing came close to the vast criminal conspiracy alleged by virtually the entire American media establishment.

“You have been lied to for 2 years by the MSM. No Russian collusion by Trump or anyone else. Who lied? Head of the CIA, NSA,FBI,DOJ, every pundit every anchor. All lies,” wrote conservative activist Chuck Woolery.

Internet mogul Kim Dotcom was more blunt, but said it all: “Mueller – The name that ended all mainstream media credibility.”

Canadian Lawmaker Accuses Trudeau Of Being A “Fake Feminist” (Video)

Rempel segued to Trudeau’s push to quash an investigation into allegations that he once groped a young journalist early in his political career

Published

on

Via Zerohedge

Canada’s feminist-in-chief Justin Trudeau wants to support and empower women…but his support stops at the point where said women start creating problems for his political agenda.

That was the criticism levied against the prime minister on Friday by a conservative lawmaker, who took the PM to task for “muzzling strong, principled women” during a debate in the House of Commons.

“He asked for strong women, and this is what they look like!” said conservative MP Michelle Rempel, referring to the former justice minister and attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould, who has accused Trudeau and his cronies of pushing her out of the cabinet after she refused to grant a deferred prosecution agreement to a Quebec-based engineering firm.

She then accused Trudeau of being a “fake feminist”.

“That’s not what a feminist looks like…Every day that he refuses to allow the attorney general to testify and tell her story is another day he’s a fake feminist!”

Trudeau was so taken aback by Rempel’s tirade, that he apparently forgot which language he should respond in.

But Rempel wasn’t finished. She then segued to Trudeau’s push to quash an investigation into allegations that he once groped a young journalist early in his political career. This from a man who once objected to the continued use of the word “mankind” (suggesting we use “peoplekind” instead).

The conservative opposition then tried to summon Wilson-Raybould to appear before the Commons for another hearing (during her last appearance, she shared her account of how the PM and employees in the PM’s office and privy council barraged her with demands that she quash the government’s pursuit of SNC-Lavalin over charges that the firm bribed Libyan government officials). Wilson-Raybould left the Trudeau cabinet after she was abruptly moved to a different ministerial post – a move that was widely seen as a demotion.

Trudeau has acknowledged that he put in a good word on the firm’s behalf with Wilson-Raybould, but insists that he always maintained the final decision on the case was hers and hers alone.

Fortunately for Canadians who agree with Rempel, it’s very possible that Trudeau – who has so far resisted calls to resign – won’t be in power much longer, as the scandal has cost Trudeau’s liberals the lead in the polls for the October election.
