ATHENS, GREECE — The prime minister’s office says Greece’s designated finance minister, who was rushed to hospital on Friday, has resigned.
Vassilis Rapanos, chairman of the National Bank of Greece, had been named finance minister last week in the country’s new three-party coalition government. But he was taken ill before he could be sworn in Friday and has been in hospital ever since.
The prime minister’s office say Rapanos has sent a letter of resignation to Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and that his resignation has been accepted.
THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.
Greece’s new prime minister was released from hospital Monday, two days after undergoing eye surgery that will prevent him from traveling to a European Union summit in Brussels this week.
The Brussels meeting comes just a week after Greece’s new coalition government was formed following months of political turmoil and two inconclusive national elections. It was to have been a key test of Greece’s hopes of renegotiating some of the austerity measures taken in return for its international bailout, under which it has received billions of euros in rescue loans from the International Monetary Fund and other European Union countries that use the euro.
The country’s incoming finance minister, meanwhile, remains hospitalized after collapsing last week, before he could be sworn in. The ill-health that struck the top echelons of the country’s new government forced the postponement of a visit to Athens by the country’s international debt inspectors, known as the Troika – representatives from the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the IMF.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, said that because the Troika needs to first travel to Athens to determine where things stand with Greece’s reform program and then inform the EU, it would be premature to expect any new decisions at the June 28-29 summit.
“That’s why we don’t expect any sort of a resolution at the EU council on Greece,” he said.
COMMENT: Yes, it’s the same old pattern of a phony narrative to hype fear & subservience, but ultimately scripted at CIA/Pentagon/FBI headquarters and carried out by informant/double agents handled from the beginning.
Just one day after reports that the CIA had foiled a plot involving a “sophisticated underwear bomb” targeted against U.S. airliners, the entire story has once again collapsed into a farce.
Just as the FBI has been caught directing every major domestic terror plot, it turns out that the supposed “bomber” was actually a CIA informant.
“U.S. and Yemeni officials say the supposed would-be bomber at the heart of an al-Qaida airliner plot was actually an informant working for the CIA,”reports the Associated Press.
“Officials say the informant was working for the CIA and Saudi Arabian intelligence when he was given the bomb. He then turned the device over to authorities. Officials say the informant is safely out of Yemen.”
So all the propaganda and fearmongering over this plot was once again over nothing -this was yet another staged incident just as the first underwear bomber event was a manufactured hoax from beginning to end.

The Illuminati Card Game:
New World Order has been released by Steve Jackson in 1995. It contains a huge number of all the aspects of the Illuminatis plan, past, present and future. This game has been released by the illuminatis themselves and is to taunt us and to show us that they (the World Government/the illuminatis) control our lifes like we control our characters in our role games.
One more proof that exposes that the on-going Arab Revolution has been orchestrated for long and is meant to reach all the Arab World and to trigger a war with Israel which will turn in a WW3, is exposed by the illuminati card game.
There are 2 illuminatis cards which are related:
The first one is labeled “dictatorship” and shows a picture of the stereotype of the arab regime.
The second illuminati card is labeled “Revolution” and show the same picture but with riots and revolutions.
The note written above says: “The rebels…they have outside support! They have photocopiers”
The Arab Revolution is indeed sponsored by the World Government and their puppets: The major governments, the major mainstream media, the major social networks are at the service of the Arab Revolution.
“They have photcopiers” is for Facebook (Facebook did not exist in 1995), it means that the revolution will be organized through a kind of social network, in this case: facebook.
Several sources have reported that a huge number of fake youtube accounts have been created during the arab revolution in the arab countries affected by riots, the goal is to give the impression that the people’s uprising was through a genuine popular facebook movement, which is not true. The illuminatis agents have organized the movement throught facebook, Youtube and internet…
Another illuminati card labeled “France” says that France can attack any country on the name of freedom, which was the case with the military intervention in Lybia, France is leading the current military intervention against the regime of khaddafi.
Another illuminati card labeled “UN” says that the UN can be used to attack any country, it’s indeed the UN which is totaly under the control of the illuminatis which has give legtimity to this military intervention.
I am not defending the dictators, they have what they deserve, I am just exposing that this revolutionnary arab movement is not genuine and has been totaly staged in order to bring the Middle East war which will oppose Israel to the arab nations and which will trigger WW3.
The illuminatis need WW3 in order to enter the New World Order.
This move will bring to the people an illusion of freedom, each person will be able to choose his own destiny: to obey Allah Alone and his Quran or to follow the perdition of the New World Order, the Reign of the Dajjal Maitreya Raj Patel.
Laicity, Interfaith, New Age, the Organized Religions,…and all the others sects are not the Religion of God, the religion of God is to have a direct true relationship with Allah/God on the basis of his holy books: Torah, Bible and the Quran prevails.
The article argues that Barack Obama killed everything that was joyful about the banking industry through his suffocating Dodd-Frank reform bill, which forced banks to strip themselves of “the pistons that powered their profits: leverage and proprietary trading.”
Having to say goodbye to excess borrowing and casino gambling, the argument goes, has cut into banking profits, leading to extreme decisions like Morgan Stanley’s recent dictum capping cash bonuses at $125,000. In response to that, Sherman quotes an unnamed banker:
“After tax, that’s like, what, $75,000?” an investment banker at a rival firm said as he contemplated Morgan Stanley’s decision. He ran the numbers, modeling the implications. “I’m not married and I take the subway and I watch what I spend very carefully. But my girlfriend likes to eat good food. It all adds up really quick. A taxi here, another taxi there. I just bought an apartment, so now I have a big old mortgage bill.”
Quelle horreur! And who’s to blame? According to Sherman’s interview subjects, it has nothing to do with the economy having been blown up several times over by these very bonus-deprived bankers, or with the fact that all conceivable public bailout money has essentially already been sucked up and converted into bonuses by that same crowd.
~here is another website with a wealth of information about election fraud…as one of the few rights we thought we had I think it’s extremely important that every single voter out there at least give everything a look over…where there’s fraud nationally everywhere else…why should the voting process be any different?…Please inform yourself instead of fighting a rigged system!!!!!!!!!
THEY’RE LEAKING OUT THE TRUTH LISTEN CLOSELY!, The TRUTH IS COMING OUT SLOWLY!
However this isn’t….they have since hired another company rather than Diebold~jude
Ron Paul: New Hampshire Voter Fraud
Victoria Collier Interviews Head Voter News Service
WHO COUNTS THE AMERICAN VOTE? by Victoria Collier
Update: August, 2010 — This interview was wholly unexpected, and I admit to feeling ill-prepared. I was 24 years old, working for a small independent activist newspaper, The Asheville Global Report (AGR). I called Voter News Service (VNS) looking for a brochure. Never would I have expected the CEO of a major media consortium to get on the phone and confront me directly. Pretty incredible, when you think about it.
I happened to have a tape recorder connected to my phone, something I didn’t admit in the AGR, since I did not disclose the fact to Bill Headline.
In the run-up to the European Debt crisis, Greece racked up plenty of debt as a member of the Euro.
When it became clear that Greece was in big trouble, other Euro countries had to help or risk contagion.
Angela Merkel of Germany forced bondholders to take a 50% haircut while Sarkozy of France went to China for some relief.
Merkel was praised for her leadership in cobbling together a bailout for the Greeks but in a twist that put global markets in turmoil, Greek PM Papandreou announced a referendum to decide whether or not to take the deal.
Merkel and Sarkozy are sure to put pressure on Papandreou to take the deal immediately. If not, Greece might find itself out of the Euro.
BRUSSELS (The Borowitz Report) – In what many are hailing as a breakthrough solution to Greece’s crippling debt crisis, Greece today offered to repay loans from the European Union nations by giving them a gigantic horse.
Finance ministers from sixteen EU nations awoke in Brussels this morning to find that a huge wooden horse had been wheeled into the city center overnight.
The horse, measuring several stories in height, drew mixed responses from the finance ministers, many of whom said they would have preferred a cash repayment of the EU’s bailout.
But German Chancellor Andrea Merkel said she “welcomed the beautiful wooden horse,” adding, “What harm could it possibly do?”
Elsewhere, when asked what he will do differently from Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda’s new leader said, “I won’t let my iPhone use my current location.”
And in political news, in a poll about a hypothetical matchup between Sarah Palin and Barack Obama, a majority of Palin voters answered, “What does hypothetical mean?”
