Back in mid-2009, we said that with the Fed and central banks nationalizing capital markets, macro and even micro data and newsflow will matter increasingly less and less, and the only thing that does matter is the Fed’s weekly H.4.1 statement, showing the changes to the Fed’s balance sheet. It also means that so-called “data dependency” is a farce (it is, and has always been “Dow dependency”), and that the impact of incremental newsflow will
One day after the much anticipated Fed announcement in which Yellen unveiled the “Great Unwinding” of a decade of aggressive stimulus, it has been a mostly quiet session as the Fed’s intentions had been widely telegraphed (besides the December rate hike which now appears assured), despite a spate of other central bank announcements, most notably out of Japan and Norway, both of which kept policy unchanged as expected.
Four months after Moody’s downgraded China to A1 from Aa3, unwittingly launching a startling surge in the Yuan as Beijing set forth to “prove” just how stable China truly is, moments ago S&P followed suit when the rating agency also downgraded China from AA- to A+ for the first time since 1999 citing risks from soaring debt growth, less than a month before the most congress for Chiina’s communist leadership in the past five years

The lucky beneficiaries are: Indivisible (already a beneficiary of George Soros’s generosity, it denies however — despite the documents of the Electoral Commission — receiving gifts from Soros and Clinton); Swing Left; Color of Change; Emerge America; and Run for (…)
Twitter has evolved to become an important outlet for political discussion, debate and commentary. The platform was notably put to use to successfully organize anti-government protests on numerous occasions, and as Statista’s Niall McCarthy notes, this put some world leaders on edge, unsurprisingly leading to some countries clamping down on the network’s content.
Twitter’s latest transparency report shows the number of content removal requests made by different countries as well as the share that were granted.
Several Top Secret documents, sourced from Edward Snowden’s files, have recently been published, revealing how the National Security Agency (NSA) spied on India’s ballistic missiles systems and nuclear weapons. The NSA did so using its interception programme, Rainfall, via its bases in Australia and Thailand.

On September 18, the US Senate voted to ban the use of products from the Moscow-based cyber security firm Kaspersky Lab by the federal government, citing national security risk.

Following the organization of the coup d’État in Ukraine, the installation of Nazis in Kiev and the independence of Crimea, Nato is feeding the paranoia of its East European members.

When it comes to 9/11, there are two groups of people: those who don’t know exactly what happened, and those who orchestrated it.
Nearly everyone on earth belongs in the former category, but a lot of folks like to pretend they have a rock solid understanding of the events which transpired on that fateful day in 2001. Scoffing mainstream adherents like to pretend they’re confident that the official
I remember back in mid-2013 when the Federal Reserve fielded the notion of a “taper” of quantitative easing measures. More specifically, I remember the response of mainstream economic analysts as well as the alternative economic community. I argued fervently in multiple articles that the Fed would indeed follow through with the taper, and that it made perfect sense for them to do so given that the mission of the
