"But It's Just A 0.25% Rate Hike, What's The Big Deal?" - Here Is The Stunning Answer

"QE2 moved Repo rates, on average, 2.7 basis points for every $100B in QE. So, one very rough estimate moved GC 8 basis points and the other 2.7 basis points per hundred billion. In order to move GC 25 basis points higher, in a very rough estimate, the Fed needs to drain between $310B and $800B in liquidity."

Israel’s ‘Successful’ Defeat on Iran

A senior German official told me in 2010, quite proudly, that under the leadership of Angela Merkel, Germany’s Iran policy had become a function of its relations with Israel. Whether Germany would sanction Iran or engage in diplomacy very much depended on Israel’s reaction. In its simplest form, the German official was explaining to me the process of “Israelizing” Iran — that is, turning one’s policy towards Iran broadly into a function one’s relationship with Israel.

Domination: Crims steal admin logins, infect sites, drop Cryptowall 4

"The campaign is carried out by installing a cocktail of malware on the compromised PC … which systematically harvests all usable usernames and passwords from the infected system and sends them to a series of control and command servers controlled by the attackers," Zaharia says.

"The Angler exploit kit will then scan for vulnerabilities in popular third party software and in insecure Microsoft Windows processes, if the system hasn’t been updated.

"Once the security holes are identified, Angler will exploit them and force-feed Cryptowall 4.0 into the victim’s system."

Zaharia says the campaign is "extensive" and operates from six bulletproof hosting servers in Ukraine.

Hussein Dawabsha believes it is this impunity that killed his daughter, son-in-law and grandson: “The Israeli government is the one who gave settlers a license to kill by giving them freedom to enter Palestinian villages.”

US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher: “Russia should be Applauded… Our Government is Unwilling to Confront the Terrorist Offensive”

When Russia courageously stepped into the breach we should have been applauding its willingness to confront ISIS. Instead, we continue to denigrate Russians as if they were still the Soviet Union and Putin, not Islamic terrorists, our most vicious enemy.

The Mossad accelerates its strategy against BDS

It's already very difficult for Israel to combat BDS. It's something akin to trying to against fight a shifting sand dune. BDS is a diffuse and broad movement, which, although it has popular and influential figures supporting it, has no central leadership or cadres that Israel could remove through its various nefarious means. More fundamentally, it's pretty hard to force people to buy Israel products, or make them participate in Israeli propaganda initiatives against their will or interest. Furthermore, although some people can be bought-off, intimidated, or otherwise coerced into silence, it's pretty much impossible to stop everyone talking about an idea or a strategy.

Zionist Benn’s Grab For Power

Hilary Benn is very serious about his power grab and has been laying the ground for it very carefully. With his abandonment of any pretended concern for the slow and agonising genocide of the Palestinians, and his strident support for Trident, Benn is embracing the Israeli establishment and the British military and political establishment.

Countdown to the Dying Culture: Can You Name 10 Reasons Why It’s Going, Gone-Gone?

The dumbdowning of America – five easy pieces of the pie gone into the bellies of the controllers, the punishers, the at-will lovers, each and everyone of them. I don’t personally blame this fellow, but we are a throwaway society because we have fatherless millions, women who are picking themselves up by the bootstraps and resentful, too, and a messed up world of dog eat dog and the spectacle of nothingness that is sports-booze-pot-clubbing and just big screen stupidity.
