Scandal: Greece To Receive “Negative” Cash From “Second Bailout” As It Funds Insolvent European Banks | ZeroHedge Incredible. Greece was already only receiving $0.19 for every $1 in bailout funds. Now greece to receive ZERO bailout funds under 2nd bailout “agreement.” All funds to be used to pay off maturing bonds and interest. The kicker is that Greece will have to fund the very escrow account that is being set up to bail out Greece…So the ponzi continued with the Greek bailout being used as a vehicle to bailout insolvent European banks.

Carbon copy of bailout proposal that is almost 8 months old. It’s about 5 am Greek time and no official statement has been made on a new deal. I think it’s safe to say that even if we get a deal it’ll fall apart within days.

It should read “The IRS Mission: to steal from the American people for the benefit of the private Federal Reserve. I should be careful as taking pictures with your camera phone is highly suspiscious behavior. Someone call DHS pronto. If you see something you must say something.
