Pablo Iglesias Turrión, leader and founder of the Spanish political party called Podemos ('We Can')

Asad Ismi writes the following about Spain’s Podemos' Irresistable Rise:

(Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives)

1. If a national election was to be held in Spain today, the 'left-wing/centrist' Podemos would almost certainly form the government.

Podemos has apparently become centrist, neither left nor right wing.

2. According to a recent poll:

Podemos has 22% of the popular vote.

The Spanish Socialist Workers Party (PSOE), which is neoliberal rather than socialist, has 20%.

The ruling right-wing Partido Popular (PP) has 19%.

The new right-wing Ciudadanos party has 18%.

3. The PSOE and the PP are controlled by the 'corrupt' oligarchs, the banks and the upper-middle class.

Spain has been run by this group since the death of the fascist dictator General Francisco Franco.

Spain's biggest corporations hardly pay any taxes.

Madrid in 1955, under a Conservative government.

4. Podemos says it wants to:

End the dictatorship of the elite.

Have true participatory democracy. 

(Take power away from the oligarchs and give more power to the villages and towns. Switzerland gives most of the powers to the cantons/counties rather than the central government. In Ancient Greece, the Oligarchs seized power when the villages and towns lost their powers.)

Restructure the government debt. 

(Pay the money back over a longer period of time).

Podemos is not anti-capitalist, but, it wants to make corporations pay taxes.

End the austerity imposed on Spain by the EU and the two establishment parties since the 2007 economic crisis.


Podemos, like the Syriza party in Greece, does not want to leave the euro zone.

Podemos claims to be Centrist - neither left nor right wing.

Conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy

In Spain, unemployment for young people reached 56% in 2013.

There has been a 10% drop in wages, for the non-oligarchs.

44% of families are now in an economically precarious position.

More than 400,000 families have been evicted from their homes

The PP government of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has been dismantling the underfunded welfare state.

Professor Cristina Fominaya, of the University of Aberdeen, Podemos is "offering an alternative political party model…that is not beholden to private capitalist interests but is instead crowdfunded through small donations... It seeks to maintain contact with social movements and with grassroots party activists..."

Professor Carles Muntaner, of Toronto University, says that the old socialist and social-democrat parties in Europe are no longer socialist because they have been taken over by the neoliberals.

However, some people think that Podemos has become too centrist.

Podemos has distanced itself from the radicals in South America.

Pablo's party likes purple.

Pablo Iglesias (above) is the leader of Spain's left wing Podemos party "which has come out of nowhere."

'Yes he can!' 

We should not forget that in Spain "the CIA sponsored the socialist Felipe González."

Podemas means 'We Can'.

Podemos came seemingly out of nowhere to capture 1.2 million votes and five seats in the European elections.

Podemas is anti-austerity.

It wants higher minimum wages and a guaranteed minimum income.

It wants to abolish tax havens and EU border controls.

It wants to nationalise the banks that were recently in trouble.

Pablo Iglesias refers to Spain's institutions being in crisis.

He refers to a monarchy "that's more and more identified with impunity and corruption."

Pablo Iglesias says: "If people don't do politics, others will do it for you. 

"And when others do it for you, they can steal your rights, your democracy and your wallet."

Pablo Iglesias is against a privileged elite that is failing to help ordinary Spaniards.

Pablo Iglesias has, perhaps unfairly, been compared to Fidel Castro, who reportedly is an asset of the CIA.

  6. "We Can"..............Unless of course the election is rigged!

    Miliband so confident of winning election he had plan to oust Cameron

  7. Castro is Definitely a Jew and the Iglesias is suspected of being a this new kid on the block also a crypto jew.Keep in mind crypto jews find it difficult to operate in countries with strong religious influence.

    The richest man in Spain is a jew...for sure.Franco is a sephardic surname.

    Is it a coincidence that BOTH Amadinejad and the current president of Iran have recognisable jewish connections via their surnames.
    Note:The number of Jews living in Iran will be greatly understated.....given the "right" mushrooms they would suddenly appear from nowhere.....the right conditions necessitates the demise of the influence of the Islamic faith.

  8. I couldn't find anything on Podemos and Soros. Well, there was some sites in Spanish but nothing in English. I somehow doubt if there is a link. I did find this RT report below with a video on how the traditional two party systems in Europe are being challenged by smaller parties. It mentioned the SNP in Scotland, but that party was backed by Murdoch which is worrying. As I have often written in the Guardian readers section, it doesn't matter who you vote for, the same old ruling class get back in power again.

  9. US preparing for war with China and Russia to save the banks

    “There’s a general recognition growing that the driving force for this war is the utter collapse of the entire Western banking system,” Billington said.

    The United States is preparing for a possible war against China and Russia aimed at preventing the collapse of the Western banking system, an American political commentator and activist says.

    Michael Billington, Asia editor for the Executive Intelligence Review and author of Reflections of an American Political Prisoner: the Repression and Promise of the LaRouche Movement, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Thursday.

  10. "Podemos is not anti-capitalist"

    Quite right. It's our current crop of politicians who are against capitalism. See how they try to destroy savers: the basis of proper capitalism. And destroy productive capitalism for their buddies playing with non-productive speculative capitalism.

  11. Podemos and Syriza are both controlled opposition groups controlled by George Soros, the Rothschilds' agent in Europe.
