USA Today-Details emerge on dramatic prison escape-John Bacon, USA TODAY 4:36 p.m. EDT July 1, 2015
The District Attorney for Clinton County, NY said David Sweat, the surviving inmate who escaped prison and eluded police for weeks is opening up about how they did it.The dramatic prison break from an isolated steel-and-concrete fortress in the wilderness of northern New York actually began more than four months before two killers slipped from a manhole outside the prison walls and dashed to freedom.So says David Sweat, the notorious survivor who was nabbed just a few miles from the Canadian border three days ago — and more than three weeks after the spectacular escape from maximum security at Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora.Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wylie says Sweat, hospitalized in fair condition, has been revealing details of the escape — although authorities can't be sure what to believe.
Sweat, who claims to be the mastermind of the plan, told investigators the effort was so well-orchestrated that he and Richard Matt actually performed a "dry run" the night before they actually fled. They used the opportunity to select a manhole on a relatively quiet street."To make a dry run and ... have the ability to escape, and then go back in, it is a little baffling," Wylie told NBC News.James Miller, spokesman for the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association, told USA TODAY he expects that an investigation now underway by the state inspector general will bring changes to prisons in the state. The association represents the almost 1,000 corrections officers at Clinton."Hopefully we will have a seat at the table when these things are decided," Miller said. "We have raised the issues of staffing, of inmate violence before. First and foremost must be the safety of the officers."Sweat, who was serving a life sentence for killing a sheriff's deputy in 2002, has acknowledged that prison tailor Joyce Mitchell, 51, was involved in the plan. But when she failed to show up with a car the night of the escape, the men had to drop the idea of fleeing to Mexico and instead decided to head for Canada.Sweat also said prison guard Gene Palmer, who like Mitchell faces charges stemming from the escape, had no advance knowledge of the escape.Sweat told investigators that he and Matt, who was fatally shot by a U.S. Border Patrol agent Friday, were almost nabbed more than once. Sweat said that at one point he was in a tree stand undetected as agents swarmed around him.Investigators had theorized that the men must have used power tools to cut through cell walls and steam pipes, but Sweat said they used simple hacksaws."He's a convicted felon, obviously convicted of a serious murder, and he escaped from state prison, so those are his statements and that's all I can go on," Wylie said.It was just about the time that Sweat began talking that the state Corrections Department announced that the prison superintendent and 11 other officials at Clinton Correctional were being placed on administrative leave.Superintendent Steven Racette, two other high-level administrators in the prison and nine security officers are on leave "as part of the ongoing review," the department said in a brief statement Tuesday.Wednesday, a 30-year Corrections Department veteran, Michael Kirkpatrick, was named to replace Racette.New security measures were also announced. Inmates' cells will be search more frequently, bed checks will be improved and security gates will be installed in the facility's tunnels, which will now be inspected monthly instead of twice a year.The escape June 6 sparked a massive manhunt that drew up to 1,500 law-enforcement officials to the rugged, rural terrain of northern New York.Matt, 49, was shot three times in the head by a U.S. Border Patrol officer on Friday. He was armed and wearing camouflage pants and a green hooded rain jacket and was carrying a camouflaged backpack. No one has claimed his body and the county could petition for a pauper's burial.Sweat, 35, was shot and captured Sunday by a New York State trooper near Constable. He was not armed. Sweat was initially hospitalized in critical condition but was upgraded to fair condition Tuesday by officials at Albany Medical Center.Mitchell, who worked in the prison tailor shop, was arrested days after the escape, accused of providing the inmates with hacksaw blades and screwdriver bits she hid in frozen ground beef. Mitchell, 51, told authorities she had agreed to meet them outside the prison with a car but that she changed her mind.Mitchell says Matt and Sweat had planned to kill her husband Lyle Mitchell. CNN was reporting, however, that Sweat told investigators killing Lyle Mitchell was her idea.Palmer, a 27-year Dannemora veteran, is also facing charges of doing favors for Matt and Sweat that aided their flight in exchange for artwork and information on other inmates.
HOARDING OF GOLD AND SILVER
DOCTOR DOCTORIAN FROM ANGEL OF GOD
then the angel said, Financial crisis will come to Asia. I will shake the world.
1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed:(CONFISCATED) their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.
1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
16 And he(THE FALSE POPE WHO DEFECTED FROM THE CHRISTIAN FAITH) causeth all,(IN THE WORLD ) both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:(MICROCHIP IMPLANT)
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark,(MICROCHIP IMPLANT) or the name of the beast,(WORLD DICTATORS NAME INGRAVED ON YOUR SKIN OR TATTOOED ON YOU OR IN THE MICROCHIP IMPLANT) or the number of his name.(THE NUMBERS OF HIS NAME INGRAVED IN THE MICROCHIP IMLPLANT)-(ALL THESE WILL TELL THE WORLD DICTATOR THAT YOUR WITH HIM AND AGAINST KING JESUS-GOD)
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast:(WORLD LEADER) for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.(6-6-6) A NUMBER SYSTEM (6006006)OR(60020202006)(SOME KIND OF NUMBER IMPLANTED IN THE MICROCHIP THAT TELLS THE WORLD DICTATOR AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER THAT YOU GIVE YOUR TOTAL ALLIGIENCE TO HIM AND NOT JESUS)(ITS AN ETERNAL DECISION YOU MAKE)(YOU CHOOSE YOUR OWN DESTINY)(YOU TAKE THE DICTATORS NAME OR NUMBER UNDER YOUR SKIN,YOUR DOOMED TO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND TORMENTS FOREVER,NEVER ENDING MEANT ONLY FOR SATAN AND HIS ANGELS,NOT HUMAN BEINGS).OR YOU REFUSE THE MICROCHIP IMPLANT AND GO ON THE SIDE OF KING JESUS AND RULE FOREVER WITH HIM ON EARTH.YOU CHOOSE,ITS YOUR DECISION.

Greece misses IMF payment, plunges into uncertainty By Honor Mahony-JULY 1,15-EUOBSERVER
BRUSSELS, Today, 09:28-Greece officially missed a payment to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and saw its bailout expire on Tuesday (30 June), capping a fortnight of tumultuous politics.The developments leave Athens without international support for the first time since 2010 and facing a referendum that some EU politicians say will determine its future in the eurozone.Greece is now in "arrears" on an €1.5 billion bill, the IMF said at midnight Brussels time - a status which sees the EU and Nato member join the ranks of Cuba and Zimbabwe.Tuesday also saw the country's EU-IMF bailout run out despite last minute manouverings by the Greek government to get better terms from creditors.Euro finance ministers are due to talk at 5.30pm Brussels time on Wednesday about the Greek PM’s, Alexis Tsipras’, last-minute call for a third rescue package.His appeal is designed to help Greece make international repayments due in the coming two years and to restructure its overall debt pile.But the third bailout call was immediately rejected by creditors on Tuesday as coming too late.“We won’t negotiate about anything new at all until a referendum, as planned, takes place,” said the German chancellor Angela Merkel. “This evening the programme expires.”Merkel also plans to address the Bundestag at 1pm local time on Wednesday.But despite her tough words, the events are a major political blow to the eurozone, whose foundation is based on the irrevocability of the single currency. They’re also a blow for the EU as a whole, which has been trying to find a solution to the Greece crisis for five years.The left-wing Greek government and its creditors had been going back and forth since February on what reforms the country needs to carry out to get a €7.2 billion aid pay-out.As the months slipped by and various deadlines came and went, the bad feeling between the two sides grew, reaching a climax at the end of last week when Tsipras unexpectedly called the referendum, saying his nation is being humiliated. Eurozone finance ministers then rejected his call for a bailout extension until after the 5 July plebiscite. They also hit back at Tsipras in a display of blunt language rarely seen at leader level.The situation leaves Greek people facing a vote on Sunday on the terms of a bailout which has already expired.France, Germany, and the European Commission have said that a No vote would amount to rejection of the euro - which could lead the country to exiting the single currency, despite uncertainty on the legal basis for such a move.A Yes vote will not bring immediate relief either, however.Any new package would take time to negotiate and then be ratified by other eurozone parliaments. There is also the question of whether a new government would need to be elected, with Tsipras having indicated that he would step down in the event of a Yes.The latest poll for EFSYN put the No camp ahead on 46 percent and the Yes on 37 percent with 17 percent undecided.Meanwhile, Greeks turned out in their thousands, in the rain, in Athens on Tuesday evening for a pro-Europe campaign.Local reports say that one sign read: "We love you Juncker" - a reference to the European Commission president, who gave a blistering speech on Monday decrying the negotiating tactics of the Tsipras government.The previous evening, thousands gathered in support of the government for a No rally.Amid the attempts by Tsipras on the one side and EU institutions on the other to win the hearts of Greek people, Greek banks remain closed with a €60 daily withdrawal cap and ordinary Greeks' future remains hugely uncertain.
Merkel: No negotiations until after Greek referendum By Honor Mahony-july 1,15-euobserver
BRUSSELS, Today, 15:46-Greek leader Alexis Tsipras made a last ditch attempt to reach a deal on Tuesday (30 June) by offering to accept most of creditors' demands in return for a new €29 billion loan but Germany's Angela Merkel has said there will be no negotiations until Greece’s referendum on 5 July - a referendum that it is itself clouded in confusion.Tsipras' letter to the EU commission, European Central Bank, and IMF said he would accept proposals laid out by creditors with amendments that included a reduction on VAT for Greek islands and maintaining some pension supplements.It came as Greece's second bailout expired at midnight on Tuesday along with a deadline to pay back a bill to the IMF - with its default putting it in a small club of nations that include Zimbabwe, Somalia and Sudan.It also means the country is without an international financial lifeline for the first time since 2010 - bringing more uncertainty for the Greek people who are already faced with closed banks and a €60 cap on daily cash withdrawals.However an evolution in the process is set to come only after Sunday's referendum.Germany has said it will not enter into negotiations on a third bailout until after the referendum is held - with Tsipras himself having indicated that if the Yes side wins he will step down.Speaking in the Bundestag on Wednesday, Merkel said: "We'll wait for the referendum - no new programme can be negotiated beforehand."She added, in an address that was also run live on Greek TV, that Europe is able to wait "calmly" for the vote because its recent reforms have made it "strong"."The current situation is without doubt a big challenge for us. But it is especially a torture for the people in Greece."The chancellor said the door remains open to Greece but that she is not prepared to make a deal "at any price" and stressed that the eurozone is built on rules and responsibility.
Eurozone finance minister are due to discuss Greece's latest request in a teleconference call at 5.30pm Brussels time, with the commission due to give its opinion on it beforehand.Euro commissioner Valdis Dombrovskis said on Wednesday that a new bailout deal for Greece is possible before new major payments come due, with 20 July and an ECB repayment seen as an absolute deadline for Athens.He also noted that with capital controls, in place since Monday, "much more efforts will be needed to restore the situation".Meanwhile confusion over Greece's referendum is continuing. Greek are being asked to approve or reject two highly technical documents from creditors.In addition the documents refer to a bailout that has already expired and there have been reports of translation problems.
What will the vote mean?
It is also unclear what the practical consequences of a No vote would be. While the vote is ostensbily on the (no-longer-valid) creditors' proposals, other EU states say a No would mean a euro exit.This has led to the Council of Europe, the continent's human rights watchdog, to condemn the proposed vote as falling below international standards.Thorbjorn Jagland, head of the organisation, told AP that the questions were "not very clear" and the referendum itself had been called at very "short notice".
Greek crisis poses questions for Kosovo and Montenegro By Andrew Rettman-july 1,15-euobserver
BRUSSELS, Today, 19:25-The Greek crisis poses questions for bank depositors in Kosovo and Montenegro, which use the euro without a safety net.The EU aspirants unilaterally adopted the single currency in 2002.It was their third switch in just a few years. They changed the Yugoslav dinar, due to hyperinflation, in the 1990s for the deutschmark. Then the deutschmark ceased to be.Looking at events in Greece, their finance ministries and central banks say their exposure to the crisis is minimal.But Raiffeisen, the top private bank in the region, says it’s not negligible.Kosovo’s finance minister, Avdullah Hoti, told EUobserver: “We don’t expect any immediate risks coming from a potential exit of Greece from the monetary union”.He noted that: “Kosovo has very stable public finances, with very low debt levels and manageable deficits, as well as a very stable, well-capitalised and liquid financial [banking] sector”.
“We have no Greek banks operating in our country”, he added.The Central Bank of Montenegro said in a statement on Tuesday (30 June): “Montenegro is one of the countries that will not significantly feel the effects of the Greek crisis”.It said “the Montenegrin banking system is not connected with the Greek banking system, export to Greece is negligible (a mere €295,000 in 2014), as is Greek FDI [investment]”.
It also said if the euro loses value, it could boost exports.It added that “it is likely that a certain number of tourists will cancel their travel to Greece, which opens the possibility of attracting more tourists to Montenegro”.For its part, Raiffeisen says they’re right to a great extent.Andreas Schwabe, one of the bank’s senior economists, told this website: “I don’t see any immediate risks to unilateral euro-adopters”.
He noted that there’s “no visible stress” in their foreign currency (FX) reserves.According to the International Monetary Fund, Kosovo had €685.5 million in its fund in March. Montenegro, which has more recent figures, had €796 million in May.But the Raiffeisen economist added, that if worst comes to worst, neither of them can turn to the European Central Bank (ECB) because they have no formal relations.Montenegro doesn’t think things will get that bad.The 30 June analysis by its central bank excluded the possibility of a Greek euro exit.Its worst case scenario is that “Greeks reject the creditors` offer at the referendum, which results in bank run and capital flight, leaving Greece with the only option of seeking assistance from the euro-area member states”.But Raiffeisen, and other big banks, aren’t so optimistic.Fisnik Latifi, a trader at Raiffeisen Pristina office, said that if Greece leaves the eurozone, the crisis could culminate in a potential “rupture in the value of the euro” and of “dire straits” in market confidence in the currency.If it happened and if Balkan depositors, like their Greek counterparts, made beelines to ATM machines, there’s no one to help.Kosovo and Montenegro cannot ask for ECB liquidity assistance but, because they use the euro, they cannot print their own banknotes either.Instead, they’d have to rely on the kind heart of foreign banks, such as Raiffeisen, to prop up their subsidiaries in the region.They’d also have to tap their own FX reserves, but these are relatively small, and the lion’s share of them is denominated in euros, limiting central banks’ firepower.“In case there should be higher demand for notes the central banks of the two countries, obviously, cannot not print currency (or receive ECB support like Greece), but would be forced to use their euro- denominated FX reserves to help their banks”, Schwabe noted.Latifi said: “the banking system in Kosovo is heavy reliant on the well-being of the euro”.“An extreme economic rupture may prove critical for banks … [and] depositors would be severely harmed”.With 40 percent of Kosovo’s GDP based on a cash-in-hand grey market, many Kosovars wouldn’t even be able to turn to their central bank for help, being left only with the paper in their pockets.
