The Greek referendum is being hijacked by the international mainstream media covering it using polls, which almost all said the YES were winning, or that the difference is too close to call.  Take that to mean, "THE NOES ARE ACTUALLY WINNING."

This same thing happened to the Scottish Independence referendum, when most polls said it was too close to call, and then, of course, to make the rejection of indpendence appear unequivocal, the results were so far from the polls as to be equivalent to tampering with the ballots.

The Greek public must insist on supervising the registration, collection, and counting of the votes, and must do EXIT POLLS TO KEEP THE VOTE HONEST.

A cursory survey of the published pictures of the Greek rallies will tell you that the NOES ARE WINNING BY A BIG MARGIN.  The polls say the opposite.  Come Sunday, expect a NO victory.  Also expect the EC and ECB to hunker down and demand immediate payment for the rest of the 250 billion Euro loans taken out by Greece.  Any delay will force Greece to issue Drachmas, or else, it will have to borrow dollars or even Yuans and dispense them through ATM's, because its Finance Minister had indicated the plates and presses for printing Drachmas had already been destroyed.

If the ATM's of Greece start dispensing Yuans, you will know that China has achieved international reserve currency status, with or without the IMF's acceptance into the SDR reserve system.  This wouild be the best way for China to establish its credibility as an international reserve currency, and at the same time, end its self-destructive overvaluation of the Yuan, allowing it to float toward the market-determined exchange rate of 6.50 Yuan/Dollar ratio.

THE GREEKS SAID "NO" TO AUSTERITY

The 2 standard deviation margin of error is 0.06%.  This proves that the polls all of which said the results were "too close to call" were either biased or incompetent.  See what we said about the mainstream media polls controlled by the West?  Five polls, Geez!!!

Now the hard part.  Varoufakis promised the electorate that the Troika will have an agreement with Greece in 24-48 hours.  That has a 50-50 chance of coming true.

On an institutional level, the Troka have to be concerned about keeping Spain, Portugal and Italy in line with their previous reform and repayment agreements.  Their local left-wing parties would surely go to the streets to end their own austerity programs right away, if Greece can get away with forgiveness of 30% of its debt of 250 billion Euros by merely holding a referendum.

On a national level, the German public may not permit Merkel to agree to forgiveness of Greek debt, which is the only way the numbers can work without austerity.  So too the French public, the Dutch, and the rest.

There is a possibility that the Troka will continue to fund Greece with 32 billion Euiro bridge loan to buy time, and in the mean time, hope that the shortage of Euros in Greek banks will lead to widespread protests against their government, leading to a kind of regime change, by whatever means.  Everything is uncertain.
