Amphipolis - World Holds Breath As Archaeologists Continue With Excavations (NEW PHOTOS)


The world is holding its breath as more and more antiquities are being unearthed in Amphipolis, in northern Greece. The international media such as the Business Times, Xinhuanet, the Toronto Sun, ABC news, Deutsche Welle, CTV news, the Irish Times, the Telegraph, the Guardian, Business Insider, the Sydney Morning Herald, China Topix, the Bangkok Post, the Montreal Gazette and a whole lot of other television news networks, publications and online news sites are keeping their audiences informed daily on the progress that is being made by Greek archaeologists at this mystery tomb. Greece might be in the news everyday, but this time the news is vindicating the glory, splendor and rich history of this country, unlike several years ago when the world was claiming Greece was nothing more than a corrupt and bankrupt republic.

According to a recent announcement from the Ministry of Culture, Greek archaeologists have removed the soil from behind the diaphragmatic wall where the Caryatids, are situated, which it notes, reached three meters high. Following this, the upper portion of the third diaphragmatic wall was revealed showing an elaborate marble Ionic style lintel as well as other architectural splendors of that era.

After doing this, the whole body of the two Caryatids were revealed.


On Friday archaeologists would attempt to get access to the entrance into the upper west part of the third diaphragmatic wall from the existing opening.

The ancient Greek tomb in Amphipolis continues to impress, with archaeologists clearing dirt from the antechamber to reveal impressive details of the two caryatid statues.

After removing the dirt surrounding the two female figures, the archaeologists added extra support in the tomb, in order to avoid any damage, in preparation of moving on to the next chamber.

Meanwhile, the Greek Ministry of Culture published new pictures of the archaeological progress and announced that fragments of the head of one of the two impressive statues were recovered during the dig.

As work continues in Amphipolis, the Greek Archaeologist Association (SEA) union issued a statement slamming the Ministry of Culture for its management of the dig in Amphipolis, and arguing that “political and other interests are being served”.

It even stupidly suggested that the Ministry revise its media campaign and remain more silent about what is being unearthed in Amphipolis because the coverage is creating a distorted image of archeology and "creates an unhealthy perception of our relationship with the past, which does not serve science or historic memory”.

(Let us keep in mind that most of the members of these organizations are Leftists and we all know that the progressives in Greece do not want Greeks to be in tune with their rich history and culture, so their idiotic statements do not surprise us here at HellasFrappe).


Turning to other related news, an associate professor of ancient Greek history in the Department of History and Archaeology at the University of Cyprus, Theodoros Mavrogiannis, claimed on Friday that the ancient tomb in Amphipolis belongs to Hephaestion, a top ranking general from Alexander the Great's army, and a man that some people referred to as No.2 in line.

Hephaestion (356 BC – 324 BC) was a Macedonian nobleman and a general in the army of Alexander. His friendship with Alexander lasted throughout their lives, and was compared, by others as well as themselves, to that of Achilles and Patroclus.

During a presentation on Amphipolis, the historian said there is evidence to suggest the tomb is Macedonian and was built around 325BC for Hephaestion, after a mandate by Alexander the Great himself. The Cypriot historian also said that the differences between archaeology and history make it more difficult to give more specific answers on the tomb.

The news about Amphipolis has also raised the patriotism of many Greeks, especially those in the Diaspora. Nikos Poupalos, a Greek-American from Buffalo, New York, and who had been following the news on Amphipolis from the very first moment the entrance to the sacred tomb was announced, decided to fly to Greece and get a firsthand look for himself.
     “I have been following the story for a year and a half now. I believed that something would be announced during the period between 27-30 August and this is why I scheduled the trip for now” Poupalos told Greek state news agency ANA-MPA.
The 53-year-old, who has been living in the US since he was 18 years old, said that he hasn’t been to Greece for the past nine years but nothing now he felt compelled to come to Greece to see the tomb firsthand.

This is why Poupalos and his American wife were one of the few that climbed the Kasta Hill -where the tomb was discovered- as far as the Greek police would allow them to go.
     “There is great interest [about the tomb] by my friends and we often discuss it. It is [the discovery] important for Greece” he said and added that he hopes the tomb has something to do with Alexander the Great.
Poupalos is scheduled to fly home on September 15th but not before he visits the Royal Tombs in Vergina, where Phillip II of Macedon, Alexander’s father, was laid to rest.

It is actually a good time to visit the Royal Tombs since the museum in Vergina is hosting a special exhibit titled "Macedonian Treasures" that will run to September 30, 2015.

And if that wasn't enough, a Caryatids-related domain went up for sale on ebay! According to press reports an Ebay user decided to take advantage of the hype about the findings in Amphipolis by offering the domain name www.kariatides.gr for sale on ebay. The owner of the domain who appears to reside in Crete offered a starting bid of US $100 (about 77 euros). All those interested can find the domain name kariatides.gr in the category Internet Businesses & Websites.

BUSTED - ISIS, John McCain & Evidence of US ‘identity manipulation’ in the M.East


The following article which was released by John Ward on the Slog examines US foreign policy in the Middle East and the many, MANY faces of Senator John McCain. HellasFrappe has published quite a few stories about this former US Presidential candidate and his supposed involvement with the Syrian rebels who we all know are not really that moderate. The latest story involved his presence at an exclusive leaders summit in Northern Italy next to our very own Alexis Tsipras. Examining the sudden turn by the Greek media in Alexis' favor, the team of HellasFrappe also featured an interview by McCain to the BBC in that same report where he refers to the ISIS as being “the largest, wealthiest, most powerful terrorist enclave in history”. The Slog picked up on our story (click HERE) and featured it on his exclusive investigative series that is examining this new barbaric extremist Islamist group. (THANKS Mr. Ward!) The report on HellasFrappe had nothing to do with global security, but rather focused on the participation of Tsipras at a summit where global security was discussed. Mr. Ward examined our report and then took the information from the video we posted and wrote the analytical report below. In the report, Mr. Ward rightfully asks how the Muslim Brotherhood became the Syrian rebels who begat ISIS and how and WHY did McCain deal directly with the ISIS leader? The US Senator had even feted his colleagues as ‘brave freedom fighters’! The author also examines the unexplained need for McCain to have big but discreet money and the direct link between his sponsors and his Middle East policies. The article also looks into the obvious involvement of the US in renaming their allies, and demonising those allies when they need another bogeyman. For the American élite, Islamic militancy is merely a question of branding. The Slog digs into the reality that makes a mockery of the ISIS story. This is one investigate report that you definitely have to read!

John Ward (The Slog) - If you go to this site (HELLASFRAPPE) and scroll straight down to the interview video, you will see and hear John McCain (the failed Republican Presidential candidate who wanted a mad Polar Bear huntress to be his Vice-President) blithely referring to ISIS as “the largest, wealthiest, most powerful terrorist enclave in history”. You will also hear him complain that Barack Obama “has done nothing to help the Syrian army” fight ISIS.

What I am about to prove beyond reasonable doubt is that Senator McCain shifts the focus of his support for one fighting force or another in the Middle East the way most of us discard our soiled underwear. Indeed, you may soil your underwear after reading what follows.

McCain has always styled himself as “a maverick who doesn’t being in the Washington set”. Well, this depends on which set one’s talking about.

McCain Stage I: in 2011 Senator McCain began by making what seemed to me a brave but grown-up statement: about how the Muslim Brotherhood should be sidelined from any participation in Egypt’s ‘transition to democracy’. He said to give the Brotherhood access to governing power “would be a mistake of historic proportions”.

Expanding on his theme, McCain told Der Spiegel,
     “The process that I would like to see and I think a lot of other people would like to see is Hosni Mubarak stepping down and the army taking charge along with other democratic organizations within Egypt — not the Muslim Brotherhood. A transition government should then launch a campaign for fair, open and democratic elections…I am deeply, deeply concerned that this whole movement could be hijacked by radical Islamic extremists.”
But then the Clinton State Department decided that its best friends against the Shiite Iranian regime would be the solidly Sunni Muslim Brotherhood. So when the Army clamped down in Egypt, the US took the ‘liberal’ view of condemning the military’s action as dictatorship, and began to peddle the usual crap handed out by the MB about how their children were being eaten alive as snacks by the wicked army regime. (Predictably, The Guardian came out full on against the Military).

With the full support of State and the CIA – and the approval of the White House – MB members were now encouraged to take a crack at other people both they and the US didn’t like….most notably Gaddafi in Libya, and Assad in Syria.

McCain Stage II: Suddenly now, McCain pops up all over the place supporting the very extremists he wanted outside the stockade in Egypt. In April 2011, he described the Al Q’aida affiliated rebels in Libya as “these brave fighters, and they are not Al-Qaeda. To the contrary: They are Libyan patriots who want to liberate their nation. We should help them do it.”

credit the Slog
Abdel Hakim BelhajOne of these brave fighters was Abdel Hakim Belhaj (left) a major player in the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group – a terrorist organization high on both the UN Security Council and the US State Department lists, and long-time affiliate of Al Q’aida.

McCain dismissed allegations about who the rebel leaders were, asserting that their histories were clear and “none of them has any record of supporting radical Islam”. The same folks McCain urged America to back went on to murder US Ambassador to Libya John Christopher Stevens in the Benghazi Compound incident… himself an agent helping create such groups. Contrary to John McCain’s assertions, many of them were Sunnis affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The US is covertly arming these folks, but McCain plays Congressional politics by saying that it isn’t enough from that Muslim I don’t trust in the White House.

McCain Stage III:  here is John McCain photographed in friendly discussion with the Syrian anti-Assad rebels in May 2013. It’s from a Daily Telegraph piece sub-headed "John McCain slipped into Syria to meet with rebel leaders and listen to their calls for US air strikes against the Assad regime and its Hizbollah allies".

The young gentleman arrowed there is Mr Al-Baghdadi… the LEADER of ISIS, “the largest, wealthiest, most powerful terrorist enclave in history”. After the meeting, McCain strongly criticised Barack Obama for not engaging in Syria. He also recorded the meeting on Twitter:
     “…Important visit with brave fighters in #Syria who are risking their lives for freedom and need our help” (twitter.com/SenJohnMcCain/
But in the interview I linked to earlier, (or to HELLASFRAPPE) you will hear the same Senator McCain strongly criticising Obama for underestimating the threat from, um, ISIS.

Here’s another family snapshot of McCain with brave Syrian freedom-fighters:

credit the Slog
The arrowed gentleman this time is Mohamed Nour – a major suspect in the kidnapping of all three hostages shown in the ISIS ‘beheading’ videos. But McCain is unrepentant: only last Wednesday night on CNN he had a go at former White House press secretary Jay Carney, saying at one point, ” I was there in Syria. We knew them, come on, it’s your boss [Obama] is the one that when the entire national security team wanted to arm and train them, he turned them down”.

Thus far, you may have reached the conclusion that John McCain is, to use the technical term here, A Piece of Work. This would be my view too, but there are several hypotheses that can be extended as to what the Senator’s real role is.

The questions I pose are these: is John McCain simply too dumb to make the photographically proven connection between his bungling interference and the hastily rebranded Syrian rebels who morphed into ISIS? Or is he complicit in a rogue organisation trying to whip up enough hatred in the US to further the interests of those with more extreme ends and beliefs? Or is he merely another Congressional whore in the pay of those who dictate US foreign policy to the American governing class?

McCain isn’t dumb. He was a highly skilled pilot and graduate of Naval College; he survived a traumatic POW experience for five years at the hands of the Vietcong; and he became a naval captain valued by his superiors. He may be a narrow-headed redneck, but he isn’t thick: a bestselling author and screenwriter, he has a net worth estimated in 2012 at US $21.6 million.

So then we must ask, if he isn’t a butt head, how did he make that much money? Let’s keep digging

I posted at the end of The Slog’s recent beheadings trilogy about the disturbing links all three ‘victims’ had with fundamentalist Christian and Jewish religious organisations rabidly opposed to Islam.

John McCain is an evangelical Baptist who chose a religious fundamentalist as his running mate in 2008. He is far from religiously extreme himself – he called out Pat Robertson as “a bigot” – but has gone out of his way over the years to make himself attractive to the Christian Right: and he is as hardline as they come on America’s foreign policy enemies.

In particular, he has said that he finds the idea of “a Muslim in the White House” uncomfortable. But this is not a man close to the far Right of the Republican Party…. amazingly, they censure him on a regular basis for being too liberal.

Is he, therefore, a front for religious nuts?

I’m not so sure. He seems to me to be a street-wise bloke who has set out to court the religious Right, but not necessarily be one of them.

It’s hard to tell. Perhaps some of them fund him: you’d be hard pushed to find a Congressman who wasn’t beholden to somebody with an obese bank account. And there remains that nagging tendency for McCain to switch sides in favour of American interests.

So how has he made that much money?

Well, one very big factor needs to be taken into account: His wife Cindy McCain is extremely wealthy, having inherited the business and fortune of America’s largest Annheuser-Busch beer distributor.

Senator John McCain is personally rich through his wife. He doesn’t need to raise that much money. Or indeed, any money at any time.

Atlantic Magazine writes this week to confirm that this year, the Senator from Arizona will ‘draw more than 94 percent of his wealth from spouse-owned assets’.

But things look different when it comes to his political money.

Here’s an interesting chart showing a massive spike in McCain’s campaign contributions in 2010 – two years after he ran for President:

credit the Slog
 As you can see, in that year he raised 4.5 times as much as he’d ever done before, and five times that of the average US Senator. But for that year, 62% of the total of US $18.2 million donated is lumped into an anonymous group called ‘Other’.

McCain was standing for reelection in Arizona that year. But he faced no serious opposition, and in fact leading Senate Democrat Jorge Luis Garcia desperately announced at one point that “The Democratic Party would be willing to lend support to a candidate against Senator McCain. It would be very expensive—very, very, very expensive.”

credit the Slog

There were no takers until pretty much the last minute: John McCain was a cast-iron cert… as the result shows:

Did McCain need 4-5 times as much money as ever before? He did not: but 2010 is the year Senator John McCain suddenly becomes Rentaquote on the subject of Middle Eastern affairs.

To sum it up, in terms of his social life and domestic political campaigns, McCain has plenty of walking-around money. But still he keeps on fundraising: in April this year he began to work the plate-circuit again ready for the 2016 Senatorial elections and he hasn’t even decided whether to run or not.

Why does McCain need all this money?

Who was the A N Other who gave him 62% of that huge 2010 donation?
Why, given he already kops for 94% of his income from her, doesn’t John just tap Cindy the Beermaid for some more?

These are valid questions, and they don’t always have satisfactory answers.

Applying for his senatorial reelection grant in 2010, for instance, Senator McCain first of all accepted the grant, and then decided he needed more than the legal cap for his total fund – so he opted out of it. Apart from the questionable legality of opting out in this manner, why would McCain worry about a cap given he was a walkover for the seat?

Here’s a man who doesn’t want his money-raising to be limited – even though he has more than enough anyway – and draws nearly all his personal money from his wife… but doesn’t want her money anywhere near his political money.

It does feel, does it not, as if either Cindy has declared his funny-business off limits, or McCain himself doesn’t want questions asked by shareholders in her business empire.

Perhaps.

There are clues as to the ‘real’ McCain within Arizona itself. It is not a sure-thing Republican stronghold per se: it was Barry Goldwater’s base for many years, but it has swapped sides on many occasions.

McCain has always enjoyed strong ‘hero’ support from natural Democrats in the State: censures or not, he’s astute enough to know that too many balls-ups and body-bags resulting from a nutcase foreign policy could change that in short order. (His majority fell by 17.5% in 2010 alone).

In other words, whatever his real Middle East/Ukraine agenda is, the Senator has to steer a careful course between patriot and rabid imperialist.

The bottom line for me begins to look more and more like John McCain being a promoter of classic right-wing Cold War US foreign policy – quite possibly up to being an agent provocateur. He has the military background, the connections and the status to be disguising cynical energy-based US Middle East policy as a continuum… and dump on Obama as soft on terrorism.

By doing so, he is keeping most Republicans, State, the Pentagon, weapons suppliers and Big Business very happy indeed. He’s not a maverick, he’s an opportunistic Cold Warrior serving his paymasters. And to help him do that, the paymasters give the Senator from Arizona a lot of money.

Discreet money.

Discreet money from folks whose bidding you do is, nevertheless, traceable. And McCain has some serious form on that dimension.

At the start of 2008, almost all of his presidential campaign bigwigs were Washington lobbyists. His campaign manager, Rick Davis, co-founded a lobbying firm whose clients have included Verizon and SBC Telecommunications. His chief political adviser, Charles R. Black Jr., was chairman of one of Washington’s lobbying powerhouses, BKSH and Associates, which has represented AT&T, Alcoa, JPMorgan and U.S. Airways.

Throughout 2008, a co-chairman of McCain’s presidential campaign and other top campaign advisers and supporters were lobbyists for the European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company, part of a group that won a US $35 billion contract to build aerial refueling tankers for the Air Force.

In the same year, federal records show, his national campaign general co-chair was being paid by a Swiss bank to lobby Congress about the U.S. mortgage crisis at the same time he was advising McCain about his economic policy. It made McCain, effectively, a paid advocate for the banking industry.

During 2013, evidence emerged suggesting that his Syria jaunt was bankrolled and set up by Israeli lobbyist Mouaz Moustafa.

This man’s non-profit organsiation sounds Syrian, but he himself is one of the Washington Institute’s roving Israel-promoters.

Intriguingly, one of the web addresses for Moustafa’s nonprofit is “syriantaskforce.torahacademybr.org.” The “torahacademybr.org” URL belongs to the Torah Academy of Boca Raton, Florida whose academic goals centre around ‘inspiring a love and commitment to Eretz Yisroel’. In short, Spin Doctors For Israel Inc.

Of course, if you’re after permanent war to fulfil your aims, then any self-respecting defence contractor would be involved somewhere. The people on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee supporting an authorisation of military attacks on Syria by 10-7 last week were being given 83% more defence-supplier cash than the average Senator.

Of the ten Ayes, John McCain received more defense lobby cash than any other senator who cast a vote.

At times in his Congressional career, Senator John McCain from Arizona has been a vitriolic opponent of the lobbying industry, at one point referring to them as “callous birds of prey”. But as with everything else about this politician, he talks with great ease out of both sides of his mouth at once.

This is why he represents the US in the Middle East with such an easy duplicity, and condemns a President whom he seems to regard as “the Muslim in the White House”. In doing so, however, McCain stands accused of basing his aims on tainted money…. as well as aiding and abetting the death of one Amabassador, two well-meaning field agents, and putting a British citizen on the same death list.

From a more macro perspective, however, McCain seems to me to act as an enabler-cum-catalyst in the serial disloyalty that is US Middle East policy. This is such a longstanding tradition at State now, the probability is that they and the CIA do not know how else to act…. and MI6 spooks are no better.

We have Sarkozy in place, we’re backing France…. we have Merkel bankrolling the EU disaster, we’re backing Germany…. we want influence in the Greek energy bonanza, we’re backing Tsipras…. we hate the Commies, we’re backing the Greek Colonels…. we don’t want to split the Greek conservative vote, we’re framing Golden Dawn…. we need an ally in Iraq, let’s rope in the Brits… the Islamists blew up the London tube, let’s get all our personnel TFO of London… and on and on and on.

I write this piece not to demolish an old lag like McCain, but rather as support for previous posts I’ve uploaded on ISIS and its ‘victims’, and the whole tragic tale of Islamisation all the way back to what I knew from Day One was the horribly mistitled ‘Arab Spring’.

The US in general and John McCain in particular are playing a duplicitously amoral game of Musical Allies in the region. They lied about Gaddafi, they lied about Syria, they lied about the Muslim Brotherhood, they lied about Al Q-aida, and now they’re lying about ISIS.

Dirty tricks are, for all these lunatics, a daily fare. We should stop seeing the flaws in the ISIS videos as fruitcake conspiracy theory, and recognise them for what they are: planned jingoism designed to facilitate further aggression, without any of those namby-pamby legislators getting in the way.

OPINION - Is The Corrupt Greek Media Suddenly Falling in Love With Alexis?


The participation of main opposition Alexis Tsipras in an international forum in Como a few days ago obviously disappointed some of his comrades who we all know preferred that he appeared in the demonstrations that were taking place in the northern city of Thessaloniki where Prime Minister Antonis Samaras gave a speech about the nation's economy, but for those who are still in touch with reality, it was an obvious initiative for a party and leader vying for power. This was the theme of an article that appeared in To Vima at the weekend and which obviously leaves us with the impression that the publishers (some of Greece's most influential oligarchs) are turning their backs on the coalition government and sucking up to Alexis. (For a possible run as prime minister?)

The article, which clearly speaks to voters of the center, says that if the left wants to claim a significant role in Greek political life then it must expand its horizons and decide on whether or not Greece is an integral part of Europe. And what is worse, it condemns some party members for not realising this, but hails Alexis who it said has a better understanding of things.

Huh?

The guy spoke at the “Forum of Como”, at the posh Villa d’Este and some of the participants at this event included names such as Barroso, Monti, Almunia Asmousen, Trichet, etc. (in other words, representatives of the  European Neoliberal \Establishment).

The forum is held every autumn in the famous Villa d’Este resort which in 2009 was declared by  Forbes magazine as being the best hotel in the world! And Tsipras represented Greece among other heavy names such as the former Prime Minister of Italy Enrico Letta and Mario Monti, the former European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, the banker Jean Claude Trichet, the German Minister Jörg Asmussen, and Commissioners Joaquín Almunia and Michel Barnier. Just check out the luxury setting.

Alexis still wants Greek citizens to to believe that he is fighting for the weak and the poor when he is clearly and without a doubt getting into bed with liberals?

Are you kidding us!

They must be fluffing his image up like they did with George Papandreou. The only thing is that at least George knew how to speak English, whereas Tsipras does not!

Check out where Mr. I am a Leftist but with a Right pocket stayed!


Aside from the obvious there is also something else that bothered us about this meeting in northern Italy. Frappers, when some the top names in European political life get together at a secluded hotel at one of the most expensive and luxurious resorts in the world to discuss global security, then expect them another hush, hush Bilderberg-type meeting that is brainstorming on events to come.

Our guess is that aside from the speeches that were made, there was also a lot of talks behind closed doors. Why do we believe that? And why are we here at HellasFrappe convinced that the meeting also had something to do with Europe's relations with Russia and the Middle East. Well guess who else attended this exclusive event? It was none other than US warmonger John McCain himself. He was actually interviewed by the BBC at the site and if one wanted to come to a conclusion on what all these neoliberals were talking about behind closed doors at this meeting then all you have to do is watch the video below. SHOCKING!


So can we safely assume that Tsipras is getting into bed with war mongers? Strong statement but then again if you actually watched the second video with John McCain then you too will wonder the same thing. A conference which discusses global security and includes names such as McCain who is steadfast on getting boots on the ground in Syria and in Iraq is a NO NO for Greek politicians. Greece has to stay neutral to all the events which are unfolding in the Middle East because they are occurring in our neighborhood!

We slammed George Papandreou many times about siding with other neocon war mongers such as George Soros and the Clintons, and from what we see Tsipras is following his lead. Papandreou may have given speeches about defending the rights of the poor and desperate people of Greece but yet he was commpletely comfortable about renting a luxury apartment  in Manhattan next to Lady Gaga!

Seriously...! How much more garbage do we have to digest?

Now we know that the Greek media is corrupt, but are they that wicked? Would they suddenly flip-flop and begin prepping up Tsipras to govern us because they too belong to the same necon group of war mongering buffoons who only endorse the defence industry, the city of London, Soros and WallStreet?

Lol... bet your heads are shaking up and down.

Frappers... it looks like it is going to be pretty interesting autumn. Stay tuned.

Amphipolis - Archaeologists Get Closer To Tomb, Discover Architrave Fragments of Ionic Order (Pics VIDEO)


The archaeological excavations in Amphipolis are still ongoing along with the horizontal removal of the soil throughout the area between the second diaphragmatic wall with the caryatids and the third wall. The latest news from the Ministry of Culture says that archaeologists discovered three architrave fragments of the Ionic order, with traces of blue and red color.

According to the announcement, a chamber behind the Caryatids, a marble revetment is featured (or an ornamental paneling that clads the walls of the room) and this, claims the announcement, is a good sign since it was a symbol of great wealth in the ancient world.

Earlier on Wednesday, reports from Northern Greece said that during the excavations, two inscriptions were found in the tomb, and were immediately transferred to the Museum of Amphipolis for research.

On Tuesday the first axonometric representation was presented by the Greek Ministry of Culture's architect Mihalis Lefantzis. The representation, featured in the photo ABOVE, details the two walled entrances; the exterior which was decorated with two Sphinxes and the interior where the two Caryatids were located.



The archaeological efforts continue with the removal of dirt from the tomb’s interior, in an effort to clear a safe path to the next chamber behind the Caryatids.

The Ministry of Culture also announced that aside from the archaeological work, much care is taken to ensure the static efficiency of the tomb with conservation and support work being carried out.

Archaeologists are now entering the third chamber which will certainly surpass the excellence of the first two.

Cautious about making any statements to the media, the Greek team of archaeologists which is working at the site are not keen on making any estimations on what lies beyond door number three.


As the days go by and as more and more is revealed in Amphipolis the secret, which was well hidden for over 2000 years, and which is about to be revealed, is capturing the minds and imagination of the whole world. In fact the impressive finds that have been unearthed in this area of Northern Greece have drawn the attention of the international press (especially after archaeologists discovered the Caryatids).

They also caught the attention of National Geographic which apparently published an article asking “Who is buried in the tomb of Amphipolis?”.

It more or less refers to the recent unearthing of the two Caryatids, and quotes scholars such as Philip Freeman, who is a professor of classics at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa as saying “I do not know of anything quite like them”. Other Academicians such as Ian Worthington, a classical scholar at the University of Missouri in Columbia and the author of two books on Alexander the Great, argues in the article that the tomb probably belonged to a wealthy person.
     “The finely crafted floor, is a clear sign of wealth. The palace of Pella [where Alexander the Great was born] yielded a number of mosaics, and they were all very costly.”
The same view was also expressed by Hector Williams, who is  an archaeologist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. He argues that this is “an enormous tomb, and one assumes that it was built for some prestigious and wealthy person,”.

One thing is certain, that those who constructed this burial site probably wanted to create some sort of mausoleum, or a structure that surpassed the glory and splendour of any other building of its sort during that period. If this is so, then we here at HellasFrappe are certain that the world is in for an amazing discovery.


Notes

(An architrave is the lintel or beam that rests on the capitals of the columns. It is an architectural element in Classical architecture. The word architrave is also used to refer more generally to a style of mouldings (or other elements) framing the top of a door, window or other rectangular opening, where the horizontal "head" casing extends across the tops of the vertical side casings where the elements join.

(The Ionic order forms one of the three orders of classical architecture, the other two canonic orders being the Doric and the Corinthian. The Ionic capital is characterized by the use of volutes. The Ionic columns normally stand on a base which separates the shaft of the column from the stylobate or platform; The cap is usually enriched with egg-and-dart. Wikipedia)



ANALYSIS - Redrawing the Map of the Russian Federation: Partitioning Russia After WWIII?


By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya - Strategic Culture Foundation vua Global Research - The end goal of the US and NATO is to divide (balkanize) and pacify (finlandize) the world’s biggest country, the Russian Federation, and to even establish a blanket of perpetual disorder (somalization) over its vast territory or, at a minimum, over a portion of Russia and the post-Soviet space, similarly to what is being done to the Middle East and North Africa. The future Russia or the many future Russias, a plurality of weakened and divided states, that Washington and its NATO allies see is/are demographically in decline, de-industrialized, poor, without any defensive capabilities, and hinterlands that will exploited for their resources.

The Plans of the Empire of Chaos for Russia

Breaking the Soviet Union has not been enough for Washington and NATO. The ultimate goal of the US is to prevent any alternatives from emerging in Europe and Eurasia to Euro-Atlantic integration. This is why the destruction of Russia is one of its strategic objectives.

Washington’s goals were alive and at work during the fighting in Chechnya. They were also seen in the crisis that erupted with EuroMaidan in Ukraine. In fact, the first step of the divorce between Ukraine and Russia was a catalyst for the dissolution of the entire Soviet Union and any attempts at reorganizing it.

The Polish-American intellectual Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was US President Jimmy Carter’s national security advisor and an architect behind the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, has actually advocated for the destruction of Russia through gradual disintegration and devolution. He has stipulated that «a more decentralized Russia would be less susceptible to imperial mobilization». [1] In other words, if the US divides Russia up, Moscow would not be able to challenge Washington. In this context, he states the following: «A loosely confederated Russia—composed of a European Russia, a Siberian Republic, and a Far Eastern Republic—would find it easier to cultivate closer economic regulations with Europe, with the new states of Central Asia, and with [East Asia], which would thereby accelerate Russia’s own development». [2]

These views are not merely constrained to some academic’s ivory tower or to detached think-tanks. They have the backing of governments and have even cultivated adherents. One reflection of them is below.

US State-Owned Media Forecasts the Balkanization of Russia

Dmytro Sinchenko published an article on September 8, 2014 about dividing Russia. His article is titled «Waiting for World War III: How the World Will Change». [3] Sinchenko was involved in EuroMaidan and his organization, the Ukrainian Initiative «Statesmen Movement» (Всеукраїнської ініціативи «Рух державотворців»), advocates for an ethnic nationalism, the territorial expansion of Ukraine at the expense of most the bordering countries, reinvigorating the pro-US Georgia-Ukraine-Azerbaijan-Moldova (GUAM) Organization for Democracy and Economic Development, joining NATO, and launching an offensive to defeat Russia as part of its foreign policy goals. [4] As a note, the inclusion of the word democracy in GUAM should not fool anyone; GUAM, as the inclusion of the Republic of Azerbaijan proves, has nothing to do with democracy, but with counter-balancing Russia in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

Sinchenko’s article starts by talking about the history of the «Axis of Evil» phrase that the US has used to vilify its enemies. It talks about how George W. Bush Jr. coined the phrase in 2002 by grouping Iraq, Iran, and North Korea together, how John Bolton expanded the Axis of Evil to include Cuba, Libya, and Syria, how Condoleezza Rice included Belarus, Zimbabwe, and Myanmar (Burma), and then finally he proposes that Russia be added to the list as the world’s main pariah state. He even argues that the Kremlin is involved in all the conflicts in the Balkans, Caucasus, Middle East, North Africa, Ukraine, and Southeast Asia. He goes on to accuse Russia of planning to invade the Baltic States, the Caucasus, Moldova, Finland, Poland, and, even more ridiculously, two of its own close military and political allies, Belarus and Kazakhstan. As the article’s title implies, he even claims that Moscow is intentionally pushing for a third world war.

This fiction is not something that has been reported in the US-aligned corporate networks, but is something that has been published directly by US government-owned media. The forecast was published by the Ukrainian service of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, which has been a US propaganda tool in Europe and the Middle East that has helped topple governments.

Chillingly, the article tries to sanitize the possibilities of a new world war. Disgustingly ignoring the use of nuclear weapons and the massive destruction that would erupt for Ukraine and the world, the article misleadingly paints a cozy image of a world that will be corrected by a major global war. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and the author are essentially saying that «war is good for you» to the Ukrainian people and that some type of utopian paradise will emerge after a war with Russia.

The article also fits very nicely into the contours of Brzezinski’s forecast for Russia, Ukraine, and the Eurasian landmass. It forecasts the division of Russia whereas Ukraine is a part of an expanded European Union, which includes Georgia, Armenia, the Republic of Azerbaijan, Belarus, Israel, Lebanon, and Denmark’s North American dependency of Greenland, and also controls a confederation of states in the Caucasus and the Mediterranean Sea—the latter could be the Union for the Mediterranean, which would encompass Turkey, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, and the Moroccan-occupied Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic or Western Sahara. Ukraine is presented as an integral component of the European Union. In this regard, Ukraine appears to be situated in a US-aligned Franco-German-Polish-Ukrainian corridor and Paris-Berlin-Warsaw-Kiev axis that Brzezinski advocated for creating in 1997, which Washington would use to challenge the Russian Federation and its allies in the CIS. [5]

Redrawing Eurasia: Washington’s Maps of a Divided Russia

With the division of the Russian Federation, Radio Free Europe’s/Radio Liberty’s article claims that any bipolar rivalry between Moscow and Washington would end after World War III. In a stark contradiction, it claims that only when Russia is destroyed will there be a genuine multipolar world, but also implies that the US will be the most dominant global power even though Washington and the European Union will be weakened from the anticipated major war with the Russians.

Accompanying the article are also two maps that outline the redrawn Eurasian space and the shape of the world after the destruction of Russia. Moreover, neither the author nor his two maps recognize the boundary change in the Crimean Peninsula and depict it as a part of Ukraine and not the Russian Federation. From west to east, the following changes are made to Russia’s geography:

• The Russian oblast of Kaliningrad will be annexed by Lithuania, Poland, or Germany. One way or another it will become a part of an enlarged European Union.

• East Karelia (Russian Karelia) and what is currently the federal subject of the Republic of Karelia inside Russia’s Northwestern Federal District, along with the Federal City of St. Petersburg, Leningrad Oblast, Novgorod Oblast, the northern two-thirds of Pskov Oblast, and Murmansk Oblast are split from Russia to form a Finnish-aligned country. This area could even be absorbed by Finland to create a Greater Finland. Although the oblast of Archangel (Arkhangelsk) is listed as a part of this partitioned area in the article, it is not included in the map (probably due to a mistake in the map).

• The southern administrative districts of Sebezhsky, Pustoshkinsky, Nevelsky, and Usvyatsky in Pskov Oblast from the Northwestern Federal District and the westernmost administrative districts of Demidovsky, Desnogorsk, Dukhovshchinsky, Kardymovsky, Khislavichsky, Krasninsky, Monastyrshchinsky, Pochinkovsky, Roslavlsky, Rudnyansky, Shumyachsky, Smolensky, Velizhsky, Yartsevsky, and Yershichsky, as well as the cities of Smolensk and Roslavl, in Smolensk Oblast from the Central Federal District are joined to Belarus. The Smolensk Oblast’s Dorogobuzhsky, Kholm-Zhirkovsky, Safonovsky, Ugransky, and Yelninsky districts appear to be portioned further in the map as the new border between Belarus and the proposed amputated Russia.

• The North Caucasian Federal District of Russia, which is comprised of the Republic of Dagestan, the Republic of Ingushetia, the Kabardino-Balkar Republic, the Karachay-Cherkess Republic, the Republic of North Ossetia–Alania, Stavropol Krai, and Chechnya, is separated from Russia as a European Union-influenced Caucasian confederation

• The South Federal District of Russia, which is constituted by the Republic of Adygea, Astrakhan Oblast, Volgograd Oblast, Republic of Kalmykia, Krasnodar Krai, and Rostov Oblast, is completely annexed by Ukraine; this leads to a shared border between Ukraine and Kazakhstan and cuts Russia off from the energy-rich Caspian Sea and a direct southern frontier with Iran.

• Ukraine also annexes the oblasts of Belgorod, Bryansk, Kursk, and Voronezh from Russia’s most heavily populated federal district and area, the Central Federal District.

• Siberia and the Russian Far East, specifically the Siberian Federal District and the Far Eastern Federal District, are torn off from Russia.

• The text states that all of the territory in Siberia and most of the territory in the Russian Far East, which are comprised of the Altai Republic, Altai Krai, Amur Oblast, the Republic of Buryatia, Chukotka, the Jewish Autonomous Oblast, Irkutsk Oblast, Kamchatka Krai, Kemerovo Oblast, Khabarovsk Krai, the Republic of Khakassia, Krasnoyarsk Krai, Magadan Oblast, Novosibirsk Oblast, Omsk Oblast, Primorsky Krai, Sakha Republic, Tomsk Oblast, the Tuva Republic, and Zabaykalsky Krai either turn into several Chinese-dominated independent states or, alongside Mongolia, become new territories of the People’s Republic of China. The map categorically draws Siberia, most the Russian Far East, and Mongolia as Chinese territory. The exception to this is Sakhalin Oblast.

• Russia loses Sakhalin Island (called Saharin and Karafuto in Japanese) and the Kurile Islands, which constitute Sakhalin Oblast. These islands are annexed by Japan.

On his own webpage, Sinchenko posted his Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty article days earlier, on September 2, 2014. The same maps, which are accredited to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, are also present. [6] There, however, is an additional picture on Sinchenko’s personal webpage that is worth noting; this is a picture of Russia being cheerfully carved out for consumption as a large meal by all the bordering countries. [7]


Mapping a New World Order: The World After World War III?

The second map is of a post-World War III globe that is divided into several supranational states. Japan is the only exception. The second map and its supranational states can be described as follows:

• As mentioned earlier, the European Union is expanded and has control over its peripheries in the Caucasus, Southwest Asia, and North Africa. This is the realization of NATO’s Mediterranean Dialogue and Partnership for Peace at the political and military levels and the European Union’s Eastern Partnership and Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (the Union for the Mediterranean) at the political and economic levels.

• The United States forms a North American-based supranational entity that includes Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, the Guianas (Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana), and the entire Caribbean.

• All the countries that are not swallowed by the US in South America will form their own supranational entity in a lesser South America, which will be dominated by Brazil.

• Some type of Southwest Asian bloc or supranational entity will be formed out of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, and Yemen.

• Some type of a supranational entity will be formed in the Indian sub-continent or South Asia out of India, Sri Lanka (Ceylon), Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar (Burma), and Thailand.

• There will be a supranational entity in Australasia and Oceania that will include the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia, East Timor, Papa New Guinea, New Zealand, and the islands of the Pacific. This entity will include Australia and be dominated by Canberra.

• Aside from North Africa, which will be controlled by the European Union, the rest of Africa will unify under the leadership of South Africa.

• An East Asian supranational entity will include most of the Russian Federation, Indo-China, China, the Korean Peninsula, Mongolia, and post-Soviet Central Asia. This entity will be dominated by the Chinese and dominated from Beijing.

Although Radio Free Europe’s article and two post-World War III maps can be dismissed as fanciful notions, some important questions have to be asked. Firstly, where did the author pick up these ideas? Were they transmitted through any workshops supported by the US and the European Union indirectly? Secondly, what informs the author’s visions of a post-World War III political landscape?The author has essentially catered to Brzezinski’s outline of a divided Russia. The text and the maps have even included the areas of North Africa, the Middle East, and the Caucasus that the European Union views as a secondary periphery or layer to itself. These areas are even shaded with a lighter blue than the darker blue used to identify the European Union.Even if Radio Free Europe is dismissed; no one should lose sight of the fact that Japan still lays claim to Sakhalin Oblast and the US, European Union, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia have been supporting separatist movements in both the Federal Southern District and the North Caucasian District of the Russian Federation.

Ukrainianism

The Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty article radiates with traces of Ukrainianism, which is worth briefly mentioning.

Nations are constructed, because they are all dynamic communities that, in one way or another, are constructed and kept together by the collective of individuals that make societies. In this regard they can be called imagined communities.

There are machinations at play to deconstruct and reconstruct nations and groups in the post-Soviet space and Middle East. This can be called the manipulation of tribalism in sociological and anthropological jargon or, in political jargon, the playing out of the Great Game. In this context, Ukrainianism has particularly been supportive of anti-government elements and anti-Russian nationalist feelings in Ukraine for more than one hundred years, firstly under the Austrians and Germans, later through the Poles and British, and now under the US and NATO.

Ukrainianism is an ideology that seeks to reify and enforce a new collective imagining or false historic memory among the Ukrainian people about them always being a separate nation and people, in both ethnic and civic terms, from the Russian people. Ukrainianism is a political projection that seeks to deny the historic unity of the Eastern Slavs and the geographic roots and historic context behind the distinction between Ukrainians and Russians. In other words, Ukrainianism seeks to de-contextual and to forget the process that has led to the distinction of Ukrainians from Russians.

Russia has always arisen from the ashes. History can testify to this. Come what may, Russia will be standing. Whenever all the diverse people of Russia are united under one banner for their homeland, they have shattered empires. They have survived catastrophic wars and invasions and have outlived their enemies. Maps and borders may change, but Russia will remain.

Court of Auditors Decides To Put Elliniko investment deal on Hold


The widely-talked about investment deal for the huge plot of land in the area of Elliniko (southern Athens) has been temporarily suspended by the Court of Auditors. A report in Ta Nea states that Greece's privatization fund TAIPED, which is handling the deal on behalf of the Greek state, was informed of this development on Tuesday.

According to the author in Ta Nea, the Court of Auditors cited a number of technical reasons on why this project should be placed on hold for now, but without elaborating and/or commenting on the essence of the deal.

The article in the Greek newspaper reveals that TAIPED is likely going to request that the decision be repealed, as it has done in similar cases in the past.

It should be reminded that the project with the Lamda Development joint venture was agreed upon about five months ago and provides that the investors will reform the site of the former international airport.

Lamda Development is set to pay 915 million euros for Elliniko, however it must first receive approval from the Court of Auditors before carrying out its investment.


BRILLIANT - 10 Good Arguments That Claim ISIS is a Scripted Psyop


The following article incredibly and brilliantly examines a few ironies and oddities surrounding ISIS. The author, Bernie Suarez, raises a few good questions. For instance how could a bunch of desert savages have so much professional camera equipment, imaging software, top of the line editing software and Hollywood style production skills? Remember we are talking about barbaric savage killers who have no respect for human life, but yet are very classy with their videos. It just does not make any sense! Furthermore, has someone asked themselves how these psychopaths obtained Internet connections, or video uploading capabilities, and social media accounts? How did they stomp out the U.S. military, NSA, the CIA, NATO, the U.N. Mossad and the U.K. as well as every other nation that surrounds them? Also, how did ISIS obtain an intelligence operation which the author says is apparently more superior to that of the CIA and Mossad? These and many more common sense questions are examined in this article. HellasFrappe rates this as a MUST READ.

Bernie Suarez (Activist Post) - Has the ISIS psyop calmed down a bit? Before it dies out let's examine some incredible ironies and oddities surrounding CIA's ISIS. After all, the ISIS psyop deserves a thorough analysis from every angle, so I thought it appropriate to outline for the sake of humanity. Hopefully, humanity can use the ISIS psyop as a tool for the final or further awakening. It may be wishful thinking, but it is worth exposing every crack and corner of this psyop and let government know that we are not going for it this time.

I declare humanity too intuitive to buy into this psychological operation and hopefully I'm right. So while the core TV-watching, mainstream media-believing community drinks the government Kool Aid, let us get started by pointing out several glaring observations regarding the ISIS psyop.

Glancing ahead, the ISIS kids have knowledge of things that require you to have education, modern technical skills, a little bit of decency, structure, conformity to societal norms and somewhat transparent connection to the outside world. What are these things and what are some of the surreal oddities surrounding ISIS? Let's examine:

1. Professional Camera, Editing Software and Skills

Incredibly, despite being savages that only want to kill for apparently no specific burning reason other than that fact that you are not ISIS, ISIS has at least some kind of production department that can skillfully provide what could be considered Hollywood-style editing (of supposed beheading videos) with multiple camera angles, consistent daylight on their subjects and proper daylight mode video exposure. They clearly have the skills for setting up multiple cameras and using those precise angles for their production department. In order to put out these supposed beheading videos, they also had to make sure that the sounds were just right and that there was no shaking of the camera.

Someone then had to take the various video angles and properly edit the footage so as to make it look professional. The editor, apparently a man of class and decency, then is careful not to show any actual action and blood. Savage killers who are ALSO respectful and classy about being too disturbing with their videos. Instead they courteously (but sloppily) cut from the early hand action of their British-sounding supposed lead man, to the post beheading amazingly clean shot of a head sitting on a corpse with the classic Photoshop drop shadows. In Hollywood style, reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock films, the editor essentially leaves the action to the viewer's imagination. Even though this beheading movie created by ISIS is not being submitted for any film festivals, they carefully comply with techniques that would make this film fully acceptable into almost any gore film festival.

To those who want to point out to viewers the amazing lack of blood during those first critical throat slices of James Foley's neck, sorry, exposing this lack of blood is in itself apparently too grotesque by YouTube standards and should you post such a video it will be conveniently removed.

2. Professional Image Editing Software and Skills.

Like the editing software, the ISIS production team shows off their skills in Photoshop image editing software, which often requires an extended learning period, resources, and practice. Despite a few imperfections, the ISIS production department seems to know how to cut and splice out sections of images to produce the desired effect of disconnecting a head from the body. Even if obtaining and using the software is believable, let's remember we're talking about savage "terrorists" that are supposedly inhumane. In other words, these are clinically, factually documented psychopaths and not your average person according to government legend. Let's keep this in mind (psychopaths) when speaking about ISIS.

3. Internet Connection, Video Uploading Capabilities, and Social Media Accounts.

According to U.S. "intelligence sources" mouthpieces, ISIS has all the above including social media capabilities. Amazingly, these covered-face killers have unraveled the secret of how to outsmart every world power including the U.S. Empire with regard to every form of communication. They have stomped out the U.S. military, NSA, CIA, NATO, U.N. and the intelligence of Israel, U.K. and every other nation that surrounds them. You may think it's not every day that a small group of young face-covered kids can outsmart the world, but this could be attributed to pure luck if you believe in the ISIS psyop. Just to be able to say that you've outsmarted the U.S. Empire 13 years after they accelerated their plans to rule the world outlined in The Project for the New American Century document titled "Rebuilding America's Defenses." According to the ISIS psyop, that accomplishment alone is worthy of historic recognition.

Here's a group of young kids with covered faces who maintain Internet accounts without any past due balances, they have wide open social media accounts (Facebook? YouTube? Twitter?) that are also apparently well maintained. They must understand and be properly following the rules of these social media accounts. But wait, if they have social media accounts doesn't that mean that the social media providers are terrorists too? Unless these geniuses called ISIS are also fooling them as well. I suppose this would be realistic according to the  government narrative since ISIS has apparently outsmarted everyone else.

Okay, forget social media, how is ISIS able to log on to the Internet? Do they have their own ISIS hackers?? Who do they pay their Internet bill with? Without Internet aren't they lost? No social media and no way of knowing what is going on right? I doubt they have analog TV in their convoys? Doesn't this present a communication problem? ISIS again quietly has overcome this problem in a flawless and mysterious manner.

4. ISIS Intelligence Operation Apparently Far Superior to CIA/Mossad

Amazingly this group of geniuses who have outsmarted the entire global intelligence community seem to have all the capabilities to put the U.S. Empire's CIA and their globalist partner Israel's Mossad to shame. ISIS has put on a clinic and has officially handed the U.S. and Israel their butts in the intelligence department. They not only formed right below their noses, they did it quickly, they figured out unanimously what their mission would be and all agreed on it. Football teams and all sports team for that matter throughout the world could learn from ISIS. ISIS apparently is teaching the world how a team works together. Imagine, the CIA's mainstream media would have us believe that ISIS is powerful and high in numbers. Really? How would you get that many people to agree on anything? Every NCAA coach would learn a lot from ISIS. Here's a group of young face-covered men who actually agree on everything. They even all agree not to attack Israel for no reason at all.

How quickly ISIS rose to power and fame and how they operate in such unity should strike everyone as very odd, yet the ISIS psyop narrative continues without missing a beat in regards to these technicalities and finer points. Any way we slice it, the ISIS psyop narratives has a group of kids with hidden faces who have revolutionized the concept of the "intelligence" operation. They solved the CIA Mossad and NSA problems and now are laughing at the global intelligence community. They did this at a time, by the way, even as uncharged innocent prisoners sit in George W Bush's Guantanamo illegal prison for life. Can you imagine what is going on in the minds of the men in Guantanamo hearing about ISIS?

5. Super Secret Database Holding the Secret Names and Identities of Their Members

Have you noticed that no one knows who ISIS is? What are their names? Why not snag up one or two of them and let the identities come out? No, not ONE member of ISIS is capturable or identified to the world. It's like they never existed. Not one wife, sister, brother, father, cousin, nephew, aunt, or uncle is speaking out. Apparently they never lived anywhere and never told their friends that they were going to join ISIS. Not one of the has a girlfriend or a spouse that would have spoken by now. No one has come out testifying that ISIS tried recruiting them. Oddly, we haven't even heard of an angry former girlfriend speaking out about the initial call, the recruiting effort or anything whatsoever. But without a powerful recruiting effort how did they recruit? Somehow they got around this one too. No one knows how. They simply came into being. Let that sink in.

6. Anti Surveillance Technology- Able to Avoid All Existing Surveillance

In the age of super advanced government biometric surveillance, tracking and spying, ISIS has one less problem than anyone in America. Unlike Americans who are constantly under the threat of being surveilled and spied on by the U.S. empire, ISIS lives free of the threat of technological surveillance of any kind. For some reason, their images, faces, voices and actions are not surveilled, tracked or recorded by those who can do it.

"Intelligence sources" are powerless in the face of ISIS. All of the U.S.'s NASA, NSA and USAF technology and equipment makes no difference when it's ISIS. Despite all this, amazingly we hear nothing about the U.S. military or NSA trying to steal or decode the ISIS counter surveillance technology. Oddly, the topic of ISIS's amazing counter-surveillance technological abilities is not talked about by anyone in the media or in Washington.

7. Endless Secret Water, Food, Farming and Meals Supply

Anyone who has served in the military knows that being a soldier makes you hungry. ISIS fighters definitely require lots of food and drinks that keep their energy up. You can't go around killing people just for not being part of ISIS without having plenty of energy and lots of water and drinks. Even in the military, working in the mess hall for some was a career. Why? Because someone has to do it.

When I was in the military I remember the supply specialists; their full time job was tagging along on our field trips, making sure the unit had enough food and water. When necessary, the supply guys had to go to work to make sure everything went smooth. So where is ISIS getting their supplies? Who's feeding them with food and water? Do they also own the farms? Do they grow their own food? Amazingly, according to the ISIS psyop they do. Or perhaps their food and water suppliers are all part of a secret operation being hidden by the world's new leader of counter intelligence, ISIS. And speaking of supplies, who's supplying their actual bullets? Ammunition? Guns without ammo are useless, so the question is where are they getting their bullets from?

8. All American Timing! - Common Enemies, Lucky Gift

ISIS is a unique group from which almost all their goals fit in perfectly with the Bush Neocon plans to militarily control the world. I covered this topic in a recent article. Amazingly, ISIS now happens to hate Russia, too, just like the United States. What are the odds? Bush Neocons controlling Obama and the globalists benefit greatly from more, not less, terrorism. An end to the War on Terror would leave the U.S. without the planned conquering of Syria and Iran and re-conquering Iraq. Without a bogey monster like ISIS to provide the pretext for invading these countries (in some cases, again) the plan has no legs. That ISIS fits in perfectly with the Bush Neocon plans is merely a coincidence according to the ISIS psyop narrative. Like Lucky Larry Silverstein taking the day off only on 9/11/01 to go to an appointment after never missing work for years if ever at all. Luck, the narrators of the ISIS psyop would have you believe, is something that just happens and should be accepted without question.

But wait, ISIS is so close to Israel, they may attack Israel any given day. Given how fast they move, how well they operate together, their skillful blend of technology and brute force surely they could cause a historic massacre in Israel overnight and leave their trail of blood through large sections of Israel. Isn't that the stated goal of ISIS? IDF and Mossad have already failed to detect or stop ISIS in any way shape or form so I wouldn't expect them to provide much of a challenge for the ISIS powerhouse terror group. Given how brave they are, I would imagine they wouldn't have any problems getting the young men to volunteer for the big Israel attack.

The big Israel attack would gain them all the PR and Marketing they need. Isn't that the goal when someone opens up a social media account? Hasn't ISIS demonstrated in the supposed beheading videos that they are serious, they want everyone to know who they are and they want certain things? An attack on Israel would get them everything they want; yet, for another lucky reason (luck of the U.S. and Israel) ISIS doesn't seem motivated about pulling off the big damage/low-cost attack on Israel.

The irony gets even crazier here. According to U.S. politicians pushing the ISIS psyop narrative, ISIS is not only unwilling to attack Israel, which they could do in a day or two, they instead prefer to make plans to travel all the way to the other side of the world to attack the world's most powerful Empire of all time. Yes, they would rather risk getting caught, imprisoned or killed traveling halfway around the world than to go for an easy quick strike at Israel. And, for good measure, as if to flaunt their super counter-intelligence capabilities, they are willing to announce ahead of time their travel plans to fly halfway across the world to attack American cities.

So this previously incredible intelligence organization that outsmarted all of the world's intelligence agencies at once, is now giving away their plans before they even happen. Doesn't that sound like a monumental change in intelligence strategy from such a stellar counter-intelligence skilled violent organization? Apparently in the "new" ISIS philosophy they now give away their plans ahead of time knowing that NOT giving away their plans worked pretty well during their secret and rapid rise to power under every one's noses. Keep in mind ISIS uses U.S. military gear which they accidentally "found" in Iraq. The military gear - including tanks, artillery weapons and high-powered guns - all just happened to work perfectly, and for good measure they apparently have all the ammunition to go with these weapons.

But wait, you might say, how can ISIS transport huge military equipment to the U.S. for an attack? Not one U.S. "intelligence source" seems to know the answer to this. Apparently ISIS is not just lucky like lucky Larry, they also have a lot of money (that no one seems to know the origin of) and they are very versatile. The ISIS engineers are apparently working on brand new smaller, easier to hide weapons that are not detectable by airport scanners or surveillance cameras. Is ISIS starting to sound like James Bond yet?

9. Complete Ongoing Immunity and Hidden Identities

Amazingly, ISIS is unknown to anyone (as mentioned in number 6). Even if their database is never discovered, ISIS is skilled at knowing when to wear their masks. I mean, you wouldn't want to be caught without your mask right? And if you are caught without your mask and someone videotapes you, does that mean they kill you? No big deal? How does that work? One thing we know is that ISIS thus far (and they have been around allegedly a few years) has been perfect at hiding their faces. Not ONE video or photo exists where one member of ISIS showed his face. Amazing? Yes, for a group that has regular social media and Internet access. Where are the images of these men that belong to ISIS and why hide your face anyway? This amazing stroke of luck of not having even one member show his face or having his identity known to the world is an amazing accomplishment given all the technology and media available as mentioned before.

With this ongoing face-hiding playing out to perfection, once again ISIS is schooling the world on how to be a criminal in the face of the global police state and get away with it. Do you realize someone you know or someone they know could be part of ISIS without anyone knowing? Is ISIS really Blackwater? Academi? You know, the U.S.'s private mercenary organization that likes to change its name all the time. Is this the reason why "ISIS" covers their face? Even James Bond could not successfully hide his identity for very long and he's just one person. Remember, we're talking about supposedly thousands if not tens of thousands of young men working as one without one of these men making a mistake. Try to imagine how ridiculous this really sounds. Ultimately, as long as secrecy of the faces of ISIS is maintained, we really don't know for sure just who ISIS really is. We know what the federal government would have us think, but humanity as a whole is now moving past this type of solution for procurement of legitimate information.

10. Untraceable Money and Endless Spending

Yes, according to government mouthpiece "experts" like Colonel Anthony Shaffer and others, we (the U.S. "intelligence sources") know a lot about ISIS. They have money, they are organized, etc. But think about it, how come they "know" so much about ISIS's financial abilities but don't "know" who funded them or what bank accounts they currently have?? U.S. and its allies' intelligence only "know" enough to scare you with ISIS but not enough to act to actually stop their banking activity. That would actually stop ISIS dead in its tracks wouldn't it? But nope, we don't want ISIS to go away too quickly. The script needs to play out doesn't it?

This script is indeed playing out, and America and the world is the audience watching the show. Those that are awakened stand in dismay at the level of propaganda we are seeing and are wondering what ridiculous narrative will the globalists spin next to get into Syria and continue into Iran? Others who wanted to believe mainstream media news but perhaps are intuitive enough to not be fooled yet again are scratching their head. We call that The WTF Moment.

While sadly others have seen this script before and for some reason they kind of liked it before. Perhaps they love the post-9/11 feeling of believing government and looking to it for protection from terrorism. Perhaps they love the police state and maybe they are comfortable being surveilled 24/7. Perhaps they know that the only way to maintain their sanity and their lifelong and hard-fought-for paradigm is to simply believe whatever mainstream media news says. This third group will welcome the CIA script.

It is this group (those that welcome the mainstream media script) that makes this next (information war) chess game between humanity's awakened segment and humanity's governing segment very interesting. This third (asleep) segment of humanity is playing out the last bit of fantasy left in their personal paradigms. Some of them would probably rather die than face reality. Some of them think they are "saving" themselves from reality. Reality, with some of these people, thus takes on the role of sin in that they want to save themselves from this consciousness. For others the same reality takes on a role of "insanity". The goal thus becomes to "preserve" their consciousness from this "insanity" or tin foil, crazy, lunatic, "conspiracy theories"- you get the picture.

That is how the ISIS psyop divides itself upon humanity. Recognizing the three primary forms of consciousness will help us arrive at a consensus on how to move forward to fix this problem. Let's hope that we (humanity) can figure it out quickly this time and with the fewest amount of lost lives. Let us pray for humanity and for the survival of the human race. Let's remember that all those logos, flags, ideologies, and concepts of governments are all just artificial agreements. Let's all try to see the biggest picture, which is that we are all part of a species (humanity) which is actually trying to kill itself off. Let's not let tiny individual samples of our own species ruin it for all of us. They've tried everything they have, so they have to start repeating their tactics. They are making the script easier for us all. Let's take advantage of this weakness they are showing. The weakness of lack of creativity. This lack of creativity is glaringly obvious to all of us now. The globalists are not very creative and they like to repeat their tactics. This is why history is a great tool to expose the globalists and their new world order.

Its been said and I declare again that those who ignore the lessons of history are bound to repeat it; never has this been more true than today. Here's a word of caution to those who still believe government's ongoing War on Terror. Look at the past, look at attacks of 9/11/01, don't you agree it didn't work out very well for us? And on top of that they took all our liberties away. This is a failed government. Are you going to trust them at a game where you are always the loser? Ask yourself, how did their phony war on terror improve your life last time? Why would this next round of ISIS be expected to be any different? Don't you want to thrive while you are alive? Then let go of government-engineered lies and narratives and see the greater agenda now for yourself. Then share this message with someone.

Parliament Approves Contracts for Hydrocarbon Drilling in Western Greece


Greece's parliamentary Standing Committee on Production and Trade on Tuesday approved with a majority vote the three contracts for concessions to carry out exploratory drilling for hydrocarbons in Katakolo, Ioannina and the Gulf of Patras - all in western Greece - sponsored by the ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change.

A fourth contract was also introduced, amending an existing contract for hydrocarbons exploratory drilling in the Thracian Sea, northern Greece.

Main opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) has said that this is the only contract it is going to approve because all the rest constitute a sell-off of Greece's underground wealth through fast-track procedures.

Summit in Defense of Christians in Iraq Opens in Washington


A three day conference dedicated to aiding the Christians in north Iraq opened in the US on Tuesday titled In Defense of Christians (IDC). The conference brought together lawmakers, Eastern and Western churches, community leaders and various Christian groups in the framework of addressing the issue of the genocide being perpetrated against Christians in the Middle East and especially Assyrians (also known as Chaldeans and Syriacs) in north Iraq by ISIS.

Since taking over Mosul in June 10, ISIS has moved into Assyrian areas in the Nineveh Plain. 200,000 Assyrians have fled their homes and are now living in church courtyards, refugees camps, abandoned and unfinished buildings, open fields and sidewalks -- in Ankawa, Arbel and Dohuk and its surrounding areas.

The conference opened on Tuesday night with an ecumenical prayer service conducted by clergy from Eastern and Western churches. The clergy included Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, Patriarch Cardinal Mar Bechara Boutros RaA, His Beatitude Patriarch John X, His Beatitude Gregory III, His Beatitude Moran Mor Ignatius Youssef III Younan, His Holiness Catholicos Aram I, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Bishop Angaelos, His Excellency Mar Ibrahim N. Ibrahim, Dr. Jim Garlow.

The service was conducted in Syriac (Aramaic), Greek, Arabic, Latin and English.

After the prayer service, Andrew Doran, the executive director of In Defense of Christians, welcomed the attendees, saying "we all share the goal to preserve and protect the Christians of the Middle East. Whatever steps will further this end IDC stands ready to support."

Caryatids Unearthed At Amphipolis Prove Greekness of Macedonians - Tuff Luck FYROM (VIDEO)


The two Caryatids (sculpted female figures) of exceptional artistic value which were unearthed at the weekend during excavations by archaeologists in Ancient Amphipolis Kasta tomb, in northern Greece, only prove once again that Macedonia was, is and will always be Greek. Their presence only ridicules the ignorant historians of FYROM -and other George Soros backed countries- who dared to recognize this Slavic republic with a stolen name. And this is because their heads are a pattern that was used extensively in ancient Greek monumental architecture, particularly after the highest artistic achievement of the Erechtheion constructed on the Acropolis of Athens.

(Sorry FYROM)

The Greek Ministry of Culture, which has been keeping us up to date on the excavations, said in an announcement that the face of the western caryatid is saved almost intact whereas the face of the eastern caryatid is missing.

Their positioning is such to symbolically prevent entry to the tomb, while the technique used is the same with the two sphinxes' already found during the excavations.

Archaeologists also discovered traces of red and blue color referring to Kore female statues on the figures.

The arrangement of the tomb's second entrance, featuring the Caryatids, is another unexpected surprise and only hightens the excitement that the monument is of exceptional and major importance.

We here at HellasFrappe have featured various opinions about who may be buried at Amphipolis, and although we want to believe that it may be Alexander the Great, we will be just as pleased if it is Roxane and/or someone else in the royal family. We are not alone. Andrew Chugg, the author of “The Quest for the Tomb of Alexander the Great,” told Discovery recently that the the tomb could possibly belong to Olympia, Alexander the Great’s mother, or his wife, Roxane.

His raises a good argument, since both Macedonian queens died at Amphipolis in the last quarter of the fourth century, which coincides with the date of the tomb.

Nonetheless we here at HellasFrappe are still hopeful that it could be Alexander's tomb and after the findings this weekend we are actually beginning to believe it. This is because we know that Alexander was a proud admirer of Athenian culture. His father King Phillip also admired the southern Greeks and that is probably why he hired the philosopher Aristotle to tutor his son.

It is true that Phillip took advantage of the disunity of the Greek city states, defeating an Athens that was paralyzed by political infighting, in the battle of Chaeronia in 338 BC. putting an end to the Delian league, but let us not forget that he then unified all the Greeks to the south of his kingdom in Pella.

When Phillip was assassinated in 336, Alexander immediately marched south with his armies in a campaign to solidify control of Greece. He united the Greeks as well as those in Asia Minor and then began his travels eastward where he conquered Greece's great enemy Persia, as well as the lands of Egypt and as far as India.

Did Alexander have the Caryatids in mind when he sent 300 Persian shields to Athens after his triumph at the Battle of Granicus, or when he asked for atonement at Delphi for killing 6,000 Thebans in retaliation for an uprising in 335 BC?

Who knows.

We will soon find out.

Editor's Note - We here at HellasFrappe understand the agony that FYROManians must feel these days - and we don't even want to analyze how this heightened after the findings last weekend. They must be in a complete nail-biting frenzy! We could just see Gruevski and his friend George Soros going frantic! It is probably very difficult for them to digest the fact that those two female guardians at this sacred tomb are of GREEK design -or Athenian- indicating the GREEKNESS of Macedonia's glory. This fact alone should finally force Gruevski to sh**t the hell up and get used to his country's given name which is Vardar! As for Soros... Expect him to use his fluffy-named humanitarian organizations to begin attacking Greece on a number of issues if the grave actually does belong to Alexander. Humans Right Watch is going to slam down hard on us, but hey... it is a small price to pay when we once again prove to the whole world that Macedonia IS, WAS and WILL ALWAYS be GREEK. Our advice to them: Suck it up buttercup!
