And G-Pap Is Gone...

Tyler Durden's picture

Headlines only, via To Vima, for now but G-Pap appears to have lived up to his word for now with L-Pap taking over. Lucas Papademos will be the new PM with Venizelos and Dimas as deputies. We still don't have a formal announcement from the government: it wouldn't be the first time a Greek media outlet has frontrun the desired outcome...

And for those who missed it yesterday, here is a repeat of L-Pap's profile.

Say hello to L-Pap, the lateset Fed puppet in Europe

From the Telegraph:

Mr Papademos, 65, is a widely respected figure in Greece, with a strong background in both academics and finance.


Educated at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in America during the 1970s, he holds a degree in physics, a masters in electrical engineering and a doctorate in economics.


A distinguished scholar who has published papers on macroeconomic theory and policy, Mr Papademos has held academic positions at Columbia University, Harvard University and the University of Athens.


After a stint at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, Mr Papademos joined the Bank of Greece as Chief Economist in 1985, rising to the position of Governor in 1994.


During his time as Governor of the national bank, Mr Papademos was involved in Greece's transition from the drachma to the euro as its national currency.


In a speech made at the Euro Information Conference in 2001, he praised the euro for shielding small economies from the "exogenous shocks" that emanated from the September 11 terrorist attacks in America.


Mr Papademos argued the euro ensured price transparency and increased competition, concluding: "The macroeconomic and microeconomic benefits for Europe and Greece from the introduction of the euro are numerous".  

And last but not least, he has been a member of the Trilateral Commission since 1998.

Matters not. As I've come to understand it(Greek politics) the new unified government is still there to impose most of the EU measures*cough* to continue debt peonage...

There once was a guy named Luc

He took over after Pap got the boot

He sounds just the same

Loving politics and fame

And bond markets won't give a hoot

Who can remember those heady days of Novmber 2008 when us wacky Americans thought that a guy namde Barack Obama taking over for a guy named George Bush would matter?  Those were fun times.  Luckily, I had already seen enough of TPTB bullshit to know that this Obama fellow must be a puppet to get the job.  He proved me right when he appoitned Timmy as his "Hope and Change" Secretary.

G-pap, L-Pap,P-diddy, George Bush, Reggie Bush, Shaved Bush, Barack Obama, Howdy Doody, Rama-lama-ding-dong, like any of that matters?  The real power remains hidden in the shadows.

It is good to see that he put all that MIT education to work.  He started out trying to change the world in the land of Oz, then decided he would rather be its master.  Money talks.  Apparently (at least for him), physics and engineering must be for losers.

That may be one the best posts ever written here. Nice...

The real power is known.  They are out there.  You need to dig a bit to find them.  Time to re-educate the masses.  The Money Masters.

History records that the Money Changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Hmmmm, my ex wife sent me pictures of their Paris gathering the day Tel E Prompted was sworn in (twice by the way, anyone remember that? The private oath inside, away from all eyes except controversial CJ...very fishy and forgotten, what was the significance of that? False oath? Different oath? You guys are SLEEPING!!!).

They were all crying and hugging and looking like clowns... un-believable. Could not say one thing bad about him. My sister too. These are Indians for heaven's sake. Such a masterful, global con-job.

It does not matter who seems to be in charge. All hired thugs/stooges. Vati-mafiosos are the enforcers, Zionists are the Bankers (easiest job if you can get it), Sheeple are producers/consumers.

Spot on. All these goddamed dynasties in politics, mirroring monarchies to a T and still people vote.

Papa Demon is after all the ZomBankis Professor


(they now have their man at the helm who will preside over the sale of Greek assets and the enslavement of the Greek people)

If the Greek people accept debt slavery than they shall receive what they deserve.  I don't know why they did not "get" the Iceland solution.

Oh regional Indian's picture

It's not part of the plan Cossack. Greece is a side show..., it's spain that will bring the pain. THey've been broad-casting that for years now. The pain in Spain, see? Spain is 4/5ths pain.

The globals rug-pull will come via Espania. Mark it, for it lies on the the great cross... ;-)

Why don't they just get a monkey to run this shit?  

Gief Gold Plox's picture

Oy! Little consideration please. Monkey's are good people.

WestVillageIdiot's picture

No shit.  Lighten up on the monkeys.  WTF did they ever do to you?

What, besides hurling fecal matter at me at the zoo? ... ? You're right, excellent banker material.

For some strange reason all this monkey talk makes me want to sling fecal matter at them too.

You gotta point with the way things are going under humanoids.    Planet of the Apes may someday be a documentary.

No dumb dumb, monkeys have tails.  I BTW am proud to be an ape. Besides, its only a matter of time before they rule us all!

He's already busy running France

LongBallsShortBrains's picture

They can't get any monkeys to run for office. It is well known among the monkeys that if a monkey were to get into office and get things going in the right direction, they would be killed by TPTB. Instead they just see no evil, ........

what, another greek in charge!

Bring the Gold's picture

Another Greek in name only, he is a servant of the bankers just like the last one. Look at his pedigree, Tri-lateralist and former FED guy. More of the same old same old.

The Fed and the Squid have their arms in everything! G-Pap = the Squid = the Fed

Just like Herman Cain = FED. If he was the Kansas City Board President of the Federal Reserve Bank, does that make him a bankster?

Uhhhhhhh, they never really had one in charge to begin with.

It doesn't really matter, because with G-Pap or without, Greece is terminal. All this means is the day of reckoning has been pushed back a little.

And now, cue Italy.

chump666's picture

yep.  and italy will vote themselves out of the EU.
