Greece: Resisting Financial Conquest

Michael-Hudson.com

By Michael Hudson

June 29, 2015

Back in January upon coming into office, Syriza probably could not have won a referendum on whether to pay or not to pay. It didn’t have a full parliamentary majority, and had to rely on a nationalist party for Tsipras to become prime minister. (That party balked at cutting back Greek military spending, which was 3% of GDP, and which the troika had helpfully urged to be cut back in order to balance the government’s budget.)

Seeing how unyielding the opposition was, Syriza’s stance was: “We would like to pay. But there’s no money.”

This kept throwing the ball back into the troika’s court. The Institutions were so unyielding that Syriza’s approval rating in the polls rose by 13% by June. Greek voters became increasingly incensed at the Troika’s demand for further pension cuts and privatizations.

How Reliable Are the Honolulu Rail Numbers?

Civil Beat

Recent stories about the Honolulu rail project’s finances have raised concerns that officials may be fudging the numbers for political purposes.

By Natalie Iwasa, CPA

June 29, 2015

Several articles have been published recently that raise questions about Honolulu rail’s financial information. Errors and inconsistencies I’ve noticed have led me to question the integrity of the project’s financial plan. As a CPA, I have very little faith in the projected revenues and costs that have been provided to us.

In response to questions by the state director of the Hawaii Department of Budget and Fiscal Services, HART provided a document showing detailed revenue through December 31, 2014. That document, “Revenues from January 1, 2007 to December 31, 2014,” shows total revenues of $1.669 billion. (For those who understand accounting, this document also mixes cash basis and accrual basis amounts.)

Octogenarian Arrested in Germany for Questioning Holocaust

Octogenarian Arrested for Questioning WWII History on TV

June 27, 2015

By John Friend

Ursula Hedwig Meta Haverbeck-Wetzel, an 86-year-old German woman who was ethnically cleansed from her home following WWII, has been arrested following her appearance on a public television program in Germany. There, she openly disputed the state-sanctioned-and-enforced “Holocaust” narrative of WWII, describing it as “the biggest and most persistent lie in history.” In many countries in Europe, including Germany, it is a crime to dispute, question or openly challenge the official narrative of the Holocaust specifically and WWII generally.

Mrs. Haverbeck, along with three of her colleagues and supporters, were arrested after having had their homes raided and ransacked by German police, where documents, books and other personal items were seized. Germany has some of the most tyrannical anti-free speech and thought laws in the world. If found guilty, Mrs. Haverbeck could face up to five years in prison.

“Ursula Haverbeck’s arrest was predictable from the start,” Warren Routledge, author of the must-read book Holocaust High Priest: Elie Wiesel, Night, the Memory Cult & the Rise of Revisionism, explained to AMERICAN FREE PRESS in a recent interview. “The German people have been under tight Zionist Jewish control for decades. It is also a poorly kept secret that the federal republic’s current chancellor, Angela Merkel, has been a CIA [Central Intelligence Agency] asset for decades. With the country’s unification after the fall of the Berlin Wall, she made a seamless transition from reporting to the CIA about her communist bosses to snitching on the intimate workings of the new, united government of Germany.”

Greek Debt Crisis: Banks Close, ATM Lines Lengthen & IMF Payment Looms

Published on YouTube June 29, 2015

The chief of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker has made a last-ditch effort to keep Greece from leaving the Euro. He said that the creditors' terms are not - quote - "stupid austerity" and that the Greek people should "not commit suicide out of fear of death" in the upcoming referendum on those terms, on July 5th. Mr. Juncker also repeatedly pointed out that he's not the one to blame for putting the country on the brink of financial ruin and now let's head to Athens, where the people are anxiously following the news from Brussels. RT's Peter Oliver and Harry Fear have more on the ongoing Greek crisis.

SCOTUS Rules for Homosexual Marriage

White House flaunts its true colors last night

 
Hawaii Political Info introduction: The three Jewish Associate Justices (Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer) and one considered to be Jewish by some (Sonia Sotomayor), predictably voted en bloc for same-sex marriage on Friday. All that was needed was one non-Jewish vote, provided by Catholic Arthur Kennedy. While Jews reputedly make up 2 percent of the population, they make up 33 percent or 44 percent of the U.S. Supreme Court, depending on whether or not Sotomayor is counted.

Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was aggrieved over this flagrant flouting of the U.S. Constitution to meet an agenda and wrote a scathing dissenting opinion, which can be read here from pages 69-77.

The same five Associate Justices voted together to save Obamacare on Thursday, with Chief Justice John Roberts, another Catholic, voting with them.

WASHINGTON — In a long-sought victory for the gay rights movement, the Supreme Court ruled by a 5-to-4 vote on Friday that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage.

“No longer may this liberty be denied,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority in the historic decision. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”

Marriage is a “keystone of our social order,” Justice Kennedy said, adding that the plaintiffs in the case were seeking “equal dignity in the eyes of the law.”

Original air date: September 26, 2013.

Hawaii Political Info introduction: Although this program aired before the Red Hill fuel tank release of what the Navy says is 27,000 gallons in January 2014, the information in this program about Hawaii's water system lifts our understanding of the Red Hill fuel release, the consequences to our island water and how our island ecosystem is a network of interrelated influences and consequences.

PBS Hawaii — Insights introduction: New Access to fresh water in our island state unlocks the doors to development, farming and tourism. But who actually owns our water?

Scheduled guests: Williamson Chang, Law Professor University of Hawaii, William S. Richardson School of Law; Ernest Lau, Chief Engineer Honolulu Board of Water Supply; William Tam, Deputy Director, Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources; and Ed Wendt, Maui taro farmer.

Large Crowd at Meeting on Red Hill Fuel Release

Hawaii News Now - KGMB and KHNL

MOANALUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hundreds of people packed the Moanalua Middle School cafeteria Thursday night to hear a draft plan to improve the Navy's fuel tank facility at Red Hill.

About 27,000 gallons of jet fuel oil leaked from one of the tanks last year, prompting concerns about whether nearby drinking water supplies were affected.

"We haven't detected petroleum at this time," said Ernest Lau, manager and chief engineer of the Board of Water Supply. "However, we're concerned because there's evidence that fuel has already contaminated the groundwater below the facility and around the facility."
