136% of Greece Now Officially Belongs to the World Banking Syndicate!


Tyler Durden's picture
Some of our German readers may be laboring under the impression that following the €110 billion first Greek bailout agreed upon and executed in May 2010, the second Greek bailout would cost a "mere" €130 billion. Alas we have news for you - as of this morning, the formal cost of rescuing Greece for the adjusted adjusted adjusted second time has just risen to €145 billion€175 billion, a whopping €210 billion, bringing the total explicit cost of all Greek bailout funds to date (and many more in store) to €320 billion. Which incidentally isa little more than Greek GDP (which however is declining rapidly) at 310 billion, only in dollars. So as of today, merely the ratio of the Greek DIP loan (Debtor In Possession, because Greece is after all broke) has reached a whopping ratio of 136% Debt to GDP. This excludes any standing debt which is for all intents and purposes worthless. This is secured debtwhich means that if every dollar in assets generating one dollar in GDP were to be liquidated and Greece sold off entirely in part or whole to Goldman Sachs et al, there would still be a 36% shortfall to the Troika, EFSF, ECB and whoever else funds the DIP loan (i.e., European and US taxpayers)! Another way of putting this disturbing fact is that global bankers now have a priming lien on 136% of Greek GDP - the entire country and then some now officially belongs to the world banking syndicate!

Massive Street Protests Wage War On ACTA Anti-Piracy Treaty

The world is witnessing the largest offline protest against copyright legislation today. Massive demonstrations against the draconian anti-piracy treaty ACTA are spanning four continents, with protests in more than 200 European cities alone. Hundreds of thousands of people are taking to the streets to prevent their countries and the European Parliament from putting the free Internet at risk by ratifying ACTA, 
Last month the European Union officially signed the controversial “anti-piracy” trade agreement ACTAThe EU followed in the footsteps of Australia, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore and the United States, who already signed it last October. This brings ACTA a step closer to passing, but individual EU member states and the European Parliament still have to ratify the treaty later this year.
To prevent this from happening, hundreds of thousands of people across the world are taking to the streets today, and millions more are expected to do their part online. In Europe demonstrations are being held in more than 200 cities, the largest in Sofia, Bulgaria, with more than 50,000 participants. These staggering numbers amount to the greatest offline protest against any type of copyright legislation, ever.

50% Will Never See Their Fathers Again.


Breaking News: Several more thousand children and their fathers in the west passed into the ranks of those destined never to see each other again today. As they did yesterday and the day before that.
As we celebrate 12 years since the birth of the new millennium fathers rights movement, F4J, the awards and accolades, a fleeting political flavor of the month at one stage has more than been reversed, and then some, by the continuing onslaught of the stupefying nanny state set to rid us of our family duties and free will in every matter.
Three hundred marched in embarrassing father christmas costumes to make a point about how many of us and our children the relevant minister at the time had stuffed for Christmas, all those years ago (2002), the figure stood at about 40%. Today it is aiming towards 60% of children who will never see their fathers again and the growing figure, as many of us have found out by bitter personal experience, is clearly by design.

Anonymous hacked the CIA - cia.gov

Traditionally known as FuckFBIFriday, this weekend's eve turned into FuckCIAFriday, as hacktivists downed the official website for the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States cia.gov.
At approximately 3:10 p.m. Eastern time one of twitter accounts related to the hackers' group announced "cia.gov DOWN. #UMAD?#Anonymous."  
The CIA website became the latest victim in a series of attacks conducted by the elusive group of hackers against US law enforcement agencies and copyright holders. As RT reported earlier, Anonymous took credit for crashing the websites of the US Department of Homeland Security, which was quickly revived, and the FBI.
The CIA seems to be less prepared for fighting Anonymous than other agencies. If the work of dhs.gov was revived in mere minutes, the CIA's site was still down even hours after the attack. One of the twitter accounts affiliated with Anonymous explained the reasons of the attack: "We do it for the lulz," referring to the popular online abbreviation "for laughs."
