Αν κάνουμε πίσω τώρα τα χάνουμε όλα! Πατρίδα, ανθρώπους, ζωή…

Αν κάνουμε πίσω τώρα τα χάνουμε όλα! Πατρίδα, ανθρώπους, ζωή…Στήνουν «σκηνικό Κύπρου», για να μας φοβίσουν… Να μας κάνουν να συρθούμε και να ικετέψουμε για έλεος.Μόνο που εάν αυτό συμβεί τώρα, με ΣΥΡΙΖΑ κυβέρνηση, θα είναι σαν να υπογράφουμε φαρδιά πλατιά την υποδούλωσή μας για τα επόμενα τουλάχιστον 100 χρόνια.Δεν ξέρω πώς αισθάνεστε εσείς, εάν φοβάστε ή όχι. Θα σας πω πώς αισθάνομαι εγώ.

Δεν φοβάμαι και δεν με νοιάζει.

Αλήθεια, πείτε μου, τι νόημα έχει μια ζωή δούλου;

Τι νόημα έχει να μεγαλώσουμε τα παιδιά μας σε μια χώρα που δεν θα τους ανήκει, που δεν θα ορίζουν ούτε την ίδια τη ζωή τους;

Είμαστε ένα αρχαίο έθνος που κάποτε υπήρξε δοξασμένο. Η δόξα μας δεν ήλθε από τις κατακτήσεις και τις αυτοκρατορίες, αλλά επειδή οι πρόγονοί μας γέννησαν μέσα από τα σπλάχνα του νου και της ψυχής τους τον Ορθό Λόγο, δηλαδή εκείνο τον τρόπο σκέψης και ζωής που τείνει να κάνει τον άνθρωπο να ομοιάσει με το Θείον.

Ακόμα και σήμερα στα πέρατα της Οικουμένης, στη Δύση και στην Ανατολή, το όνομα των Ελλήνων είναι συνώνυμο με τον Πολιτισμό, με τον Ανθρωπισμό, με την Αρετή.

Εδώ μόνο στον τόπο μας τα παραμελήσαμε αυτά, συμβιβαστήκαμε γενιές ολόκληρες με δουλοπρεπείς αντιλήψεις, της «ελλαδίτσας», της «ψωροκώσταινας», της μικρής πλην τίμιας Ελλάδας. Και ξεχάσαμε τα λόγια των πατέρων του έθνους μας, που πύρινα έρχονται μέσα από τους αιώνες: «Καλύτερα μιας ώρας ελεύθερη ζωή, παρά 40 χρόνια σκλαβιά και φυλακή».

Εάν είμαστε Έλληνες, εάν λέω, όχι στην ταυτότητα αλλά στον νου και την ψυχή, οφείλουμε να παραδειγματιζόμαστε από την ιστορία μας, αρχαία και νεώτερη και να ακολουθούμε τα βήματα εκείνων στους οποίους οφείλουμε την ύπαρξή μας.

Συλλογιστείτε απλά. Γιατί εκείνος ο Λεωνίδας στάθηκε στις Θερμοπύλες; Γιατί ο Κωνσταντίνος ο Παλαιολόγος στα τείχη της Πόλης; Γιατί το 40 τρέξαμε στα βουνά της Ηπείρου να μετρηθούμε με τον Μουσολίνι;

Και στις Θερμοπύλες, και στην Πόλη και το 40, υπήρχε επιλογή. Να παραδοθούμε, και θα μας άφηναν στην ησυχία μας.

Όπως και τώρα, αυτό μας λένε: παραδοθείτε και θα έχετε την ησυχία σας…

Αλλά πώς να αψηφήσεις τον Θουκυδίδη που σε διδάσκει: «ή ελεύθερος θα είσαι ή ήσυχος».

Υπερηφανευόμαστε οι Έλληνες, ότι είμαστε ο πρώτος λαός που συλλογίστηκε την έννοια της Ελευθερίας. Και τώρα μας ζητάνε να την ενταφιάσουμε.

Γιατί η ήττα, η υποταγή της Ελλάδας αδελφοί μου δεν είναι ένα ασήμαντο «περιφερειακό» γεγονός στην άκρη της μερκελικής Ευρώπης, είναι η μητέρα των μαχών για τους μισάνθρωπους νεοφιλελεύθερους προτεστάντες, που θέλουν και επιθυμούν να την κερδίσουν με λύσσα, για να απευθυνθούν μετά σε όλη την ανθρωπότητα και να της πουν:

«Δείτε τους Έλληνες, τους συνθλίψαμε. Εγκαταλείψτε λοιπόν τα άχρηστα βιβλία τους, που αιώνες τώρα σας γεμίζουν τα μυαλά με περιττές ιδέες για ελευθερία και αρετή και υποταχθείτε στην ισχύ μας. Γιατί εμείς που νικήσαμε τους Έλληνες και αποδείξαμε μέσα από τον θρίαμβό μας την ελληνική πλάνη, εμείς είμαστε η μοναδική αλήθεια που οφείλετε να ασπαστείτε, να πιστέψετε, πειθήνια να αποδεχτείτε. Και με τον τρόπο ζωής που εμείς ορίζουμε θα ζείτε, γιατί είναι μάταια και ανεφάρμοστα όσα σας δίδαξαν οι Έλληνες»…

Αυτό θα πουν και θα απλώσουν πάνω από τον όμορφο πλανήτη μας το πιο πυκνό, το πιο απόλυτο, το πιο ασφυκτικό μεσαιωνικό σκοτάδι και θα χαθεί για πάντα η χαρά, η αξιοπρέπεια, η ομορφιά της ζωής, η αρμονία της πλάσης που τόσο μελωδικά ύμνησαν Ελύτης, Σικελιανός στα δικά μας χρόνια.

Δεν ξέρω τι θα κάνει ο καθένας σας. Οι αγώνες των Ελλήνων είναι εθελοντικοί και στην τελική κανείς δεν υποχρεούται να είναι ούτε Έλληνας, ούτε ελεύθερος.

Αλλά όσοι επιλέξετε να είστε Έλληνες και ελεύθεροι να ξέρετε ότι δεν έχετε την πολυτέλεια του φόβου, την επιλογή της «ησυχίας» της σκλαβιάς..

Εδώ θα σταθούμε όρθιοι και θα πολεμήσουμε. Κι αν είναι να πέσουμε, όρθιοι να πέσουμε και όχι γονατιστοί, όπως μας δίδαξαν οι πρόγονοί μας.

Σήμερα αγωνιζόμαστε, όπως χιλιάδες χρόνια το κάνουμε, για τις ζωές μας, για τους ανθρώπους μας, για την πατρίδα μας και για τον κόσμο ολόκληρο.

Κι αν νικήσουμε χαρά όμοιά της δεν θα έχουμε ξαναζήσει.

Κι αν χάσουμε τουλάχιστον δεν θα κουβαλάμε για το υπόλοιπο της μίζερης ζωής μας τη ντροπή, την ώρα που θα ξεψυχάμε στο νεκροκρέβατο, στην τελευταία μας ανάσα, να τυραννιόμαστε σαν καταραμένοι από τις τύψεις της δειλίας, ότι αφήσαμε μια ζωή να πάει χαμένη ως σκλάβοι…

Αυτά ήθελα να σας πω αδελφοί μου, και συγνώμη εάν έγινα περισσότερο κουραστικός από ό,τι συνήθως…

Σε πλήρη εξέλιξη το «σχέδιο κολυμπήθρα» που στοχεύει να ξεπλύνει τα ανομήματα του πολιτικού και οικονομικού συστήματος – Όταν η διαδικασία ολοκληρωθεί θα έχουν αλλάξει όλα στην Ελλάδα προς το χειρότερο – Η νέα διαπλοκή θα ελέγχει τα πάντα

Σε πλήρη εξέλιξη βρίσκεται το «σχέδιο κολυμπήθρα» το σχέδιο εξαγνισμού και καθαγιασμού των ανομημάτων του πολιτικού και οικονομικού συστήματος.
Το κείμενο που θα διαβάσετε αποτελεί προϊόν συγκέντρωσης στοιχείων από πηγές που ασκούν εξουσία στον τόπο σε πολιτικό και οικονομικό επίπεδο.
Το κείμενο αυτό δεν στηρίζεται σε εικασίες αλλά σε ένα σχέδιο που έχει εκπονηθεί εις βάρος της κοινωνίας.
Το σχέδιο κολυμπήθρα δημιουργήθηκε με ένα βασικό στόχο, τον στόχο να ξεπλύνει τα ανομήματα του πολιτικού και οικονομικού συστήματος της Ελλάδος.
Σε αντίθεση με αυτό που πιστεύουν πολλοί τα οικονομικά και πολιτικά συστήματα απόλυτα διαπλεκόμενα έχουν ακόμη εξουσία στην Ελλάδα.
Παραδόξως πολλοί πιστεύουν ότι η Αριστερά ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ είναι ένα ανισυστημικό κόμμα που θέλει να χτυπήσει τα παραδοσιακά οικονομικά τζάκια το παραδοσιακό κατεστημένο.
Ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ έχει καταστεί ένα αυστηρά συστημικό κόμμα το οποίο συναλλάσσεται με την Goldman Sachs, δεν ήταν τυχαία η συνάντηση με στελέχη του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ όπως και με τους Αμερικανούς οι οποίοι δεν βλέπουν με φοβικά σύνδρομα την ελληνική νεοαριστερά δηλαδή τον ΣΥΡΙΖΑ.
Την ίδια στιγμή η Χρυσή Αυγή αποτελεί στα μάτια της κοινωνίας την λαϊκή αντίδραση αλλά δεν είναι τίποτε άλλο από δημιούργημα των μυστικών υπηρεσιών και της αστυνομίας που θέλει να δημιουργήσει ένα νέο πολιτικό πόλο ως αντιστάθμισμα της ανόδου της Αριστεράς.

ΟΙ ΑΝΩΝΥΜΟΙ ΧΑΚΑΡΑΝ ΤΟ ΥΠΟΙΚ-Anonymous Hacks Greek Finance Ministry, Finds «123456» Is Password For 37% Of All User Accounts | ZeroHedge

While we have yet to go through the thousands of files that hacker collective Anonymous has just released as a result of its hack of the Greek Finance Ministry, an exploit it described as follows: «We gained full access to the Greek Ministry of Finance. Those funky IBM servers don’t look so safe now, do they… We have new guns in our arsenal. A sweet 0day SAP exploit is in our hands and oh boy we’re gonna sploit the hell out of it. Respectz to izl the dog for that perl candy,» what we find even more amusing, if not surprising, is that of the 136 username accounts Anonymous hacked, the password of precisely 50 of them, or some 37% of all workers, is…. 123456 (full list here).

That, together with this archival picture of the inside of the Athens Finance Ministry, explains much more about the current and future state of Greek affairs, than any idiotic Troika/IMF forecast ever could.

As for those curious just what secrets the chaotic finance ministry of the Eurozone’s most insolvent country holds, the downloads are available here and here.

ΕΝΑ ΛΑΜΠΡΟ ΜΕΛΛΟΝ ΓΙΑ ΤΟΥΣ ΕΛΛΗΝΕΣ:»ΤΩΡΑ ΚΑΘΑΡΙΖΩ ΤΑ ΣΚΑΤΑ ΤΩΝ ΣΟΥΗΔΩΝ»-A Bright Future For Greeks:»Now I Clean Swedish Shit» | ZeroHedge

Posted by satyrikon στο Σεπτεμβρίου 7, 2012

One look at the short squeeze in the EURUSD, coupled with the endless jawboning out of Europe, and one may be left with the faulty impression that Europe has been magically fixed and that Greece couldn’t be more delighted to remain in the Eurozone. One would be wrong. This is what is really going on in Europe:

As a pharmaceutical salesman in Greece for 17 years, Tilemachos Karachalios wore a suit, drove a company car and had an expense account. He now mops schools in Sweden, forced from his home by Greece’s economic crisis.

“It was a very good job,” said Karachalios, 40, of his former life. “Now I clean Swedish s—.”

That more or less explains everything one needs to know about the «fixing» of Europe.

Of course, those who saw our chart from yesterday which showed Greek unemployment rising by 1% in one month to a record 24.4% will hardly find this surprising.

For all those others who need a personal anecdote to grasp just how fixed Europe is, we hand it off to Bloomberg.

Karachalios, who left behind his 6-year-old daughter to be raised by his parents, is one of thousands fleeing Greece’s record 24 percent unemployment and austerity measures that threaten to undermine growth. The number of Greeks seeking permission to settle in Sweden, where there are more jobs and a stable economy, almost doubled to 1,093 last year from 2010, and is on pace to increase again this year.

“I’m trying to survive,” Karachalios said in an interview in Stockholm. “It’s difficult here, very difficult. I would prefer to stay in Greece. But we don’t have jobs.”

Since 2010 and the beginning of the Greek debt crisis which has resulted in an outright economic depression in the country, the Greek security services have investigated around the potential of extremist groups, in this particular case, Albanian ones; taking advantage of the situation for either criminal or nationalistic purposes. The research has provided data of increased importation of armaments into the country, as well as, the formation of close-knit potential extremist groups within the Greek territory that are for the moment in communication with other cells in Albania and elsewhere.
In late August 2012, a video that briefly aired on YouTube showed a band of around 5 Albanians in a mountainous location near Kukes in Albania, firing against a Greek flag with AK-47 (Chinese type) and issuing threats for mass assassinations of Greek citizens, as well as arsons. Incidentally, there were several arson cases in Greek forests during the summer period, and also in FYROM and Serbia and a number of local pundits blamed -amongst other- Albanian extremist groups as responsible for such illicit actions.

The video where the Albanian group was firing rounds with Kalashnikov was clad in paramilitary summer uniforms, with the insignia of the “SS”, a reminder of the 21st Waffen – Gebirgs – Division der SS Skanderbeg that was established in April 1944. Forensic security analysts in Greece have assured that this video was made for the purposes of “psychological warfare” and should be related with the inner workings of Neo-Nazi Albanian tendencies of extremist groups that are scattered between Albania, Kosovo and FYROM.


In Greece, a group of Albanians residing in the Kalavryta region of North-Western Peloponnese and in the Menidi outskirt of Athens reposted the video through their Facebook accounts. Subsequent investigation by the Greek state security revealed that the group was in the process of evolving into an extremist one as well, by mimicking the Neo Nazi tendencies of those in the original video. Scores of photo material was confiscated and one person was deported for being without legal documentation in the country. What’s most important though is that a wide-scale mobilization in the security forces was enacted in order to disband other groups before they became a threat in terms of social stability.

English: Jean-Claude Juncker at the EPP summit...

European viceroy of various neo-colonial territories Jean-Claude Juncker, best known for being a self-professed pathological liar, just concluded a press conference in which he did what he does best: lie. Here is a sampling of the soundbites along with our commentary:

  • EU’S JUNCKER SAYS TRUTH IS GREECE SUFFERS CREDIBILITY CRISIS – coming from a pathological liar, this one is our favorite
  • EU’S JUNCKER SAYS CONVINCED GOVERNMENT WILL TAKE ALL MEASURES. «all measures» = «all gold»
  • EU’S JUNCKER: FULLY CONFIDENT GOVERNMENT TO TAKE ALL EFFORTS «all efforts» = «all gold»
  • EU’S JUNCKER SAYS GREECE MUST OPEN UP CLOSED PROFESSIONS.  Chimneysweep? Bootblack? Telegraph Operator? Tax Collector? Prosecutor? Uncorrupted muppet?
  • EU’S JUNCKER SAYS BALL IS IN GREEK COURT; IS LAST CHANCE. The ball will be repoed to the ECB shortly
  • EU’S JUNCKER SAYS NOT SAYING THERE WON’T EVER BE A 3RD PROGRAM or 33rd program
  • EU’S JUNCKER SAYS GREEK EURO EXIT WOULD BE RISK TO EURO AREA and Obama’s reelection
  • EU’S JUNCKER SAYS BALL IS IN GREEK COURT; not for long: ball will soon be repoed to the ECB

And much more propaganda. Here is the truth. According to Greek Thema, in Thessaloniki, the second-largest city in Greece, so far in 2012, an unprecedented 1,250 companies have shut down. This means no jobs, no tax revenues, no money in circulation. A complete and total economic collapse.

So let us explain: while Greece and Europe may engage in endless check kiting Ponzi schemes: such as the most recent one, whereby Greece promises to pay Germany by issuing bills, bought by its banks, which in turn are repoed to the ECB via the ELA, with the cash used by the country to pay Germany and the ECB, even as Germany’s contingent liabilities get more massive by funding the ECB’s capital, the reality is that unless someone does some work, and creates real wealth, real money, instead of merely shuffling electronic cash from Point A to Point B, while the only thing increasing are German contingent liabilities, aka systemic debt, absolutely nothing will change.

GREECE EXCLUSIVE: ‘Deal has been done to pay off bondholders and forgive residue of debt’ | A diary of deception and distortion

Posted by satyrikon στο Αύγουστος 12, 2012

Samaras…big secret, upping the pace of austerity

FRENCH DIPLOMATIC SOURCE CONFIRMS BIG NEW CONTAINMENT PLAN FOR GREECE

‘What the deal does is allow another default date to come and go with everyone pretending it hasn’t happened.’

Another day, another bonkers conspiracy theory from The Slog. Greece has done a deal to put the lid on the Greek crisis? Pah! Formation of Greek/Israeli/Cyprus/US alliance? Fiddlesticks!

Let’s take the deal first.

There is a tradition in Greek politics that the government of the day delivers a speech and holds a press conference during the annual Thessaloniki International Trade Fair. Organized by Helexpo, it takes place every September at the Thessaloniki International Exhibition Centre. This convention of a sounding-board for those in power has been going on since 1926. Only during the German Occupation was it interrupted.

But the Samaras government has decided to neither speak nor take questions. No explanation is being given as to why. Another email from a regular Athenian media contact:

“Something has been agreed, and whatever it is has made the bondholders and the Troika irrelevant overnight. There are half-hearted references to repayment schedules, but they don’t have that sense of panic evident just a few short weeks ago. But you can see that Samaras is now pushing for more austerity progress.”

He is indeed. Greek media are reporting that Prime Minister Samaras told government ministers to complete work this month on 77 amendments to be included in a bill that aims to speed up state asset sales.

One clue comes from a senior tax office executive who has blown whistles to The Slog before.

“I think the Troika made a catastrophic error some days ago,” this person told me yesterday, “either that, or they did this deed to create a showdown. I don’t know which, but it concerns the EU demand that the Greek civil service should have its headcount drastically reduced. Samaras and Stournaris are all for it, Venizelos [PASOK] is nervously against, and Fotis Kouvelis [Democratic Left] is flatly refusing to even consider it. No crooked politician in Greece dares to attack the civil service, for obvious reasons. This is a major sticking point”.

It’s an interesting view, but it doesn’t on its own in any way explain the dramatic change in Troika/bondholder v Government atmosphere the week before last. Somebody, somewhere in Europe flicked a switch within the last ten days, and everyone relaxed.

Now a close French diplomatic contact has told The Slog:

“Brussels or Berlin…or both…or others…have given Samaras a big reassurance that if he sticks with the [austerity] programme, Greece will not be thrown out of the euro. Those same people have given similar assurances to the key players in the IMF and bondholder groups…that if they take another haircut, the EU will pay off the balance and give them their money back. The secrecy is to do with Merkel being flayed alive at home if they thought she was doing this, and Draghi ensuring that his central bank doesn’t become an open door for insolvent States and panicky bondholders.”

Now this is an interesting one: the talks stick over the issue of bureaucrat firings, so somebody decides to break the deadlock using a judicious mixture of EU acting like a sovereign plus debt forgiveness. But it will be packaged in such a way as to disguise what it is. This is, of course, precisely what the ECB has done over Spain, and to some extent Italy; so to that extent it rings true. Has Draghi engineered this deal as the next step in neutering Germany…or has he formed some sort of pact with Merkel during her holiday – which ends tomorrow? Are the Americans in the loop?

I don’t know for certain: but logic points the finger at Mario Draghi.

This Tuesday, Athens will auction some short-term bonds to pay off the €3.2 billion bond repayment due on Aug.20. Greece being able to do this successfully will avoid the country having to seek yet more emergency funding on top of the bailout loans it receives from EU and IMF funds.

The €3.2 billion bond that matures August 20th is held by the European Central Bank.

It seemed odd that nobody looked concerned by everyone going on holiday with default due on August 20th. Now we know why. What the deal does is allow another default date to come and go with everyone pretending it hasn’t happened. Success or failure after the bond issuance, the ‘Greeks’ will meet the maturity date.

It is becoming increasingly potty to stick with the view that nothing is going on here. As the Economist points out this week:

‘There is a common fallacy, not least in Germany, that dropping the Greeks would be a fairly costless way to teach a useful lesson. In fact the European Central Bank (ECB) owns Greek bonds with a face value of €40 billion ($50 billion), which would be converted into devalued drachma and which Greece might not service. A further €130 billion or so of loans that Greece received in the bail-out would have to be written down, or written off. The €100 billion of the temporary debts Greece has stacked up in the ECB’s payments system would crystallise into a loss. Add in a one-off grant of say €50 billion to tide Greece over—call it conscience-salving “solidarity”—and the bill might come to €320 billion. Estimating the price of a “Grexit” is guesswork, but Germany’s share might reach €110 billion of this, about 4% of the country’s GDP.’

Those nutters at the Economist, eh? What will they come up with next?

Now for the strategic alliance story. Starting from the vantage point of Greece-Turkey relations over Cyprus, I was (I think) the first to point out that Putin was trying to strengthen his ties with the Greek Cypriot regime. I also posted several times earlier this year about Turkish raw material ambitions in the Aegean, and the virulently anti-Israel stance being taken by that nice, normal Recep Erdogan. The comms/energy pipeline agreement between Greece, Cyprus and Israel quickly followed as a topic here, and now – following the visit of Shimon Peres to Athens last week – comes further evidence of a cemented alliance.

The output from the visit is that Greece and Israel will move towards much closer cooperation on defense issues, including the joint manufacture of defence systems. Government sources confirmed this to news-site Ekathimerini, adding that the Syrian bloodbath and arrival of warships warships in the Southeastern Mediterranean have confirmed the two sides’ mutual view that closer defensive cooperation is essential. A senior bod in the Israeli Ministry of Defence, Shmaya Avieli, will visit Greece before the end of August to continue the talks and scope out some projects.

Clearly, neither side is hanging about on this one. But it’s all just more Slogbollocks anyway, so I wouldn’t worry over there at the Foreign Office, chaps. You just carry on getting it completely wrong: it’s a long-standing tradition, and it’d be a shame to change it now.

March 25 - Greece Independence Day

March 25 – Greece Independence Day (Photo credit: Aster-oid)

Wolf Richter   www.testosteronepit.com

A lot of politicians in Germany, but also in other countries, issue
zingers about a Greek exit from the Eurozone and the end of their
patience. But those with decision-making power play for time. They want
someone else to do the job. Suddenly Greece is out of money again.
It would default on everything, from bonds held by central banks to
internal obligations. On August 20. The day a €3.2 billion bond that had
landed on the balance sheet of the European Central Bank would mature.
Europe would be on vacation. It would be mayhem. And somebody would get
blamed.

So who the heck had turned off the dang spigot? At first, it was the
Troika—the austerity and bailout gang from the ECB, the EU, and the IMF.
It was supposed to send Greece €31.2 billion in June. But during the
election chaos, Greek politicians threatened to abandon structural
reforms, reverse austerity measures already implemented, rehire laid-off
workers….

The Troika got cold feet. Instead of sending the payment, it promised
to send its inspectors. It would drag its feet and write reports. It
would take till September—knowing that Greece wouldn’t make it past
August 20. Then it let the firebrand politicians stew in their own
juices.

It’s easy to blame the Troika, and it can take the heat. History
searches for the person who is responsible. But the Troika doesn’t have
one. It was designed that way: a combo of multi-layered, undemocratic
structures. And the Troika inspectors, though despised in Greece, are
career technocrats, not decision makers.

So Chancellor Angela Merkel became a substitute. Greek tabloids
treated her like a Nazi heir, with Hitler mustache and all. But she’s
not the decision maker in the Troika, though she is a
contributor. And she—though still unwilling to water down the bailout
memorandum—consistently stated that Greece should remain in the
Eurozone. She doesn’t want to be blamed.

In early July, the inspectors returned to Athens to chat with the new
coalition government and check on progress in implementing the
agreed-upon structural reforms. Soon it seeped out that their report
would paint an “awful picture” [read…. Greece Flails About, Merkel Draws A Line, German Industry & Voters Back Her: It’s Almost Over For Greece].

In late July, the inspectors returned to Athens yet again and left on
Sunday. After another visit at the end of August, they’ll release their
final report in September. A big faceless document on which people of
different nationalities labored for months; a lot of politicians can
hide behind it. Even Merkel. And the Bundestag, which gets to have a say
each time the EFSF disburses bailout funds.

Alas, August 20 is the out-of-money date. September is irrelevant.
Because someone else turned off the spigot. Um, the ECB. Two weeks ago,
it stopped accepting Greek government bonds as collateral for its
repurchase operations, thus cutting Greek banks off their lifeline.
Greece asked for a bridge loan to get through the summer, which the ECB
rejected. Greece asked for a delay in repaying the €3.2 billion bond
maturing on August 20, which the ECB also rejected though the bond was
decomposing on its balance sheet. It would kick Greece into default. And
the ECB would be blamed.

But the ECB has a public face, President Mario Draghi. He didn’t want
history books pointing at him. So the ECB switched gears. It allowed
Greece to sell worthless treasury bills with maturities of three and six
months to its own bankrupt and bailed out banks. Under the Emergency
Liquidity Assistance (ELA), the banks would hand these T-bills to the
Bank of Greece (central bank) as collateral in exchange for real euros,
which the banks would then pass to the government. Thus, the Bank of
Greece would fund the Greek government.

Precisely what is prohibited under the treaties that govern the ECB
and the Eurosystem of central banks. But voila. Out-of-money Greece now
prints its own euros! The ECB approved it. The ever so vigilant
Bundesbank acquiesced. No one wanted to get blamed for Greece’s default.

If Greece defaults in September, these T-bills in the hands of the
Bank of Greece will remain in the Eurosystem, and all remaining Eurozone
countries will get to eat the loss. €3.5 billion or more may be printed
in this manner. The cost of keeping Greece in the Eurozone a few more
