Fed Will Flood Market With Gargantuan $500 Billion in Liquidity to Avoid Year-End Repo Crisis

“Massive… Huge… Largest Ever”: In previewing today’s Fed statement regarding repurchase operations, on Tuesday Curvature Securities repo expert Scott Skyrm said that he expects the Fed to announce a $50 billion (at least) term operation for Monday December 23 (double the current term ops) and a $50 billion (at least) term operation for Monday, December 30. This prediction was in response to Zoltan Pozsar’s warning that reserve levels are too low and the result would be a market crash that could spark QE4.

Well, moments ago the NY Fed did publish it latest weekly “Statement Regarding Repurchase Operations” as expected laying out the Fed’s expected repo operations for the period December 13 — January 14… and it blew Skyrm’s expectations out of the water

According to the statement, the NY Fed will continue to offer two-week term repo operations twice per week, four of which span year end. In addition, the Desk will also offer another longer-maturity term repo operation that spans year end. The amount offered in this operation will be at least $50 billion, just as Skyrm expected.

But there was more. Much more.

U.S. stocks closed slightly higher Friday, though well off intraday peaks, after President Donald Trump and Chinese officials announced a trade pact that includes a rollback of some tariffs, the scrapping of further duties originally set for Sunday, and promises of targeted U.S. agricultural purchases by China.

How did the benchmarks perform?

The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.01% rose 3.33 points, or less than 0.1% to 28,135.38, after hitting a high at 28,290.73, while the S&P 500 indexSPX, +0.01% gained 0.23 points or 0.01% to 3,168.80, eking out a new record close, and the Nasdaq Composite Index COMP, +0.20% added 17.56 points, or 0.2%, to 8,734.88, also a record.

Let’s look at a few of Chairman Powel’s words at yesterday’s press conference. Please read them and tell me whether this sounds to you like a man who doesn’t understand what he’s doing. Or if you think he’s deliberately pulling words out of his ass, stringing them together, and spewing them from his mouth in an effort to gaslight the investing public.

Californians Flee the State in Droves and Flock to Texas

Californians are fleeing the state in droves to avoid the massive tax burden and oppressing business policies of the totalitarian state. Of the 700,000 who fled California last year, 10% ended up in Texas, which is a much more business-friendly state.

And it isn’t just individuals who are leaving. As Zerohedge reported, the influx of Californians should come as no surprise, as businesses have been migrating out of the high-tax, high-crime, heavily regulated state for cheaper pastures.

Caroline Glick: Why American Jews Slander President Trump

The past week has clarified a lot of things about the state of the American Jewish community — and its antagonists.

The two assailants who walked into the kosher supermarket in Jersey City Tuesday and opened fire intentionally targeted the Jews. They killers belonged to the black supremacist, virulently anti-Semitic “Black Hebrew Israelite” movement which claims its members are the true children of Israel and the Jews are satanic imposters.

The shooting in Jersey City marked a predictable escalation of the anti-Semitic attacks being carried out against Orthodox Jews in the New York area. The focal points of the attacks to date have been the ultra-Orthodox communities in Brooklyn. Over the past two years, the frequency of the assaults has increased sharply. Most of them have been perpetrated by black anti-Semites. None have been carried out by white supremacist anti-Semites.

This is an important distinction because progressive politicians like New York Mayor Bill De Blasio and Senator Bernie Sanders routinely present the anti-Semitic violence in Brooklyn as the product of white supremacists.

And while it is true that to date, white supremacist anti-Semitism has been the most lethal form of anti-Semitism in America, from a political and social perspective it is poses a smaller danger to Jewish life in America than the three other forms of active anti-Semitism in America today: progressive/socialist anti-Semitism, Islamist anti-Semitism and black anti-Semitism.

These forms of Jew hatred pose a greater threat to Jewish life in America than white nationalist anti-Semitism for two reasons. First, whereas white supremacists are political orphans, with no political party willing to embrace them, progressive, Islamist and black anti-Semites are deeply embedded in the political left. Over the past 15 years, they have become powerful actors in the Democratic Party capable of bending the party to their will.

The second reason they pose a greater danger to Jewish life in America than white nationalists is because while socialist, Islamist and black anti-Semites will not cooperate with white supremacist anti-Semites, they are more than happy to work with one another to achieve their common goals. They cover for one another — as Sanders and De Blasio cover for the black anti-Semites in Brooklyn. They support one another, as both men embrace Islamist anti-Semite Linda Sarsour. Thursday Cong. Rashida Tlaib claimed that white supremacists were responsible for the attack in Jersey City.

The place where the three types of anti-Semites converge most powerfully and so present the greatest threat to Jewish life in America is on college campuses. In campuses throughout the U.S., Jewish Americans are compelled to keep their heads down or face abuse and harassment due to their common efforts to ostracize Jewish students and professors who fail to actively condemn Israel…

Even Notoriously Liberal Rolling Stone Magazine Just Blasted the Steele Dossier

Over the past three years, there have been a select few left-leaning journalists who have set aside their personal distaste for President Donald Trump and actually displayed some professional integrity.

Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone, certainly no fan of the president, is one of those who have been dubious of the absurd notions of Russian collusion put forward by the Steele dossier that was accepted by so many in the establishment media.

Some on the left have claimed the lengthy Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse report from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is a total exoneration of the FBI instead of a clear condemnation of corrupt practices.

Taibbi, however, has taken a well-deserved victory lap over how he and other doubters have been proven correct in their initial assessment of the dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.

The Rolling Stone editor noted how the Horowitz report, much like the final report from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, was a “Rorschach test” in which partisans would see only what they wanted. For him, however, the FISA report proved “what a clown show the Trump-Russia investigation was.”

“There’s no chance the President’s going to be removed from office,” McConnell told Hannity.

Further, McConnell said he expects all Republicans and even some Democrats to vote against impeachment.

Strange Things Are Happening in the Waters Along the West Coast, And the Fish Are Starting to Disappear

Something is causing the waters just off the west coast to heat up dramatically, fish are dying off in staggering numbers, birds that feed on those fish are also dying off rapidly, and scientists have discovered 15,000 holes in the ocean floor off the coast of California. Oh, and scientists don’t know for certain why any of these things are happening.

Unfortunately, the mainstream media is not emphasizing this crisis, and so most Americans don’t even know what is going on. But the truth is that what we are facing is extremely serious. In fact, officials have taken the “unprecedented” step of shutting down the federal cod fishery in Alaska for the year because of the lack of fish. We are seeing things happen that we have never seen before, and this is definitely going to affect our food supply.

So why are the fish dying?

Well, nobody knows for sure, but some officials are blaming the “marine heatwave” that has been happening in the waters along the west coast. The following comes from KING5 News…

[…]

This is something that I have written about previously. Scientists are telling us that water temperatures are “as much as 6 degrees Fahrenheit above normal”, and if such conditions persist we could see millions upon millions of fish die.

If you, my Virginian friend, are indeed serious about standing against the proposed tyranny of those whom a majority of your fellow “citizens” have seen fit to install as the arbiters of your liberty, then you have chosen a righteous, though perilous course. Much of the nation is watching what is unfolding in your state. What you are attempting is no small thing and should not be undertaken lightly. Quite simply, you are telling your rulers that you will not comply. They are not used to such effrontery by commoners and be certain that they are not amused.

Believe the leftist cretins that contaminate your Commonwealth when they say that they support the confiscation of your weapons. They bleat about “gun safety” and “gun violence” as if the weapons you hold in your hands are sentient beings capable of acting for good or evil of their own volition. They are idiots and helots-in-waiting for the coming American tyranny. Do not believe the lunatics that now hold the majority in your legislature when they say now that they no longer seek to strip you of the single most important liberty you possess. Most importantly, do not believe that deceitful occupant of the Governor’s Mansion. The man is an inveterate liar, an advocate of the murder of innocents and your sworn enemy.

Trump Issues Executive Order Banning Any Criticism of Jews and Israel

US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order that he claims will help combat anti-Semitic discrimination based on “race, color, or national origin,” as critics say it only shields the state of Israel from any criticism.

Citing the “rise of anti-Semitism” on college campuses and elsewhere, the move seeks to apply the 1964 Civil Rights Act to Jewish Americans, and calls on the government to find new ways to “use nondiscrimination authorities” to address the issue.

“This is our message to universities: if you want to accept the tremendous amount of federal dollars you get every year, you must reject anti-semitism; it’s very simple,” President Trump said after signing the order.

Evil Fusion GPS Founders: You Know What Britain Needs? ‘Its Own Mueller Report on Russian Interference’

You’d think that Fusion GPS founders Glenn R. Simpson and Peter Fritsch would have the good sense and decency to keep their mouths shut for a couple of years, now that the entire world knows that their “opposition research” into the Trump campaign was one big sham. Sadly, the two men beg to differ. They’ve actually written an op-ed for British newspaper The Guardian in which they demand a Mueller-type investigation on Russian interference in… British politics.

No, that is not a joke. “The British political system has become thoroughly compromised by Russian influence,” the two internationally known sleazeballs write. “It’s high time its institutions — including the media — woke up to that fact. In 2016, both the United Kingdom and the United States were the targets of Russian efforts to swing their votes. The aim was to weaken the alliances that had constrained Vladimir Putin’s ambitions, such as the European Union and Nato.”

UK Election 2019: Boris Johnson and the Tories Win in a Landslide Victory

Boris Johnson led the Tories to a landslide victory in yesterday’s General Election as the Conservatives stole seats from Labor in its traditional strongholds in the north.

Following the announcement of last night’s results, the Prime Minister said that British people had provided him and his party a “powerful new mandate to get Brexit done”. The stunning victory represents the best general election result for the Conservatives since 1987.

As this is being written, 649 of Britain’s 650 constituencies have announced their results, and the Conservative Party has won 364 seats in the House of Commons to deliver the largest majority of any Conservative government since the 1950s. Labor took home just 203 seats in what was the party’s worst electoral result since 1935.

UK: Broken Record: Left Continues to Smear Voters as Racist Bigots After Election Loss

Prominent leftist political figures in the UK reacted to the Labour Party’s massive election loss by once again smearing voters as racist bigots, which is one of the reasons why they lost the election in the first place.

Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party won a resounding victory last night, defeating Labour who ran on a hard left manifesto under their leader Jeremy Corbyn.

But instead of using the defeat to take a moment of reflection and re-assess their messaging, many leftists angrily lashed out and insulted the very people who they should be trying to reach.

Federal Judge Backs People-Powered We Build the Wall, Inc. — Shreds Federal Lawyers for IBCW

During a hearing Thursday at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas in McAllen, U.S. Attorney E. Paxton Warner claimed the Federal Emergency Management Agency has already conducted a mapping study that confirms the construction of a border wall would cause catastrophic environmental damage on the river banks by utilizing expensive state of the art Light Detection and Ranging equipment, also known as LIDAR.

Yet, FEMA claimed has declined to provide its study to IBCW, Warner admitted.

Judge Crane shot back, chiding the government attorneys.

“If you can’t get it then how do you expect a private citizen to have access to it?” he asked Warner. “I’m not for making people jump through hoops just to jump through hoops. That seems petty.”

Italian Government Numbers Show 42% of Rapes Are Carried Out by Migrants

New figures released by Italy’s Interior Ministry have revealed that 42 per cent of rapes in the country are carried out by migrants.

The numbers show that Italian women are more likely to be victims of sexual harassment or so-called “minor sexual assaults” than foreign women are, but that migrant women are slightly more likely to experience major sex crimes like violent rape.

The numbers are similar in many other European countries that have accepted large numbers of migrants from North Africa and the Middle East.

Figures released last year found that 58 per cent of convicted rapists and 85 per cent of all convicted assault rapists in Sweden were born outside of Europe.

In cases where the victim did not know the attacker, the proportion of foreign offenders was more than 80 per cent. Nearly 40 per cent of the convicted rapists are from the Middle East or from Africa.

A study by the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet found that 88 per cent of gang rapists in the Scandinavian country over the last six years have had a migrant background.

Americans Are Lonely, Miserable and Depressed — The Legacy of a Society That Has Rejected Family, Faith and Patriotism

What in the world has happened to us? Once upon a time, America was made up of tightly-knit communities that were united by family, faith and patriotism, but now we are more isolated than ever before. Of course one of the biggest reasons for this is the fact that we are all spending countless hours staring at screens instead of interacting with real people, and this is something that I covered in a previous article. However, our fundamental beliefs are also significantly shaping how we behave. For the past couple of generations, we have de-emphasized family, faith and patriotism as a nation, and instead we have become an extremely “me-centered” society that is primarily focused on doing whatever makes ourselves happy in the moment. But this single-minded pursuit of individual happiness has resulted in much of the country being perpetually mired in loneliness, depression and/or addiction.

When you look at the numbers, they truly are startling. For example, a recent survey that was conducted by Cigna found that almost half of all Americans feel lonely…

Elementary School Invites Convicted Felon Drag Queen to Talk to Children

An elementary school in Austin, Texas invited a convicted felon drag queen to talk to children having either ignored or failed to carry out a full background check.

The Blackshear Fine Arts Academy invited Miss Kitty Litter ATX (real name David Robinson) to spend time with kids despite Robinson being a convicted prostitute.

Emails between the school’s librarian, Roger Grape, and Robinson suggest that Robinson knew he wouldn’t pass a background check and the school either ignored it or failed to carry one out.

A video posted to Twitter but subsequently removed shows Robinson promoting an “international drag festival” while holding a baby doll in a baking pan in an apparent reference to the baby being food.

Robinson’s visit occurred after Austin schools passed a radical new curriculum that encourages children to be taught about LGBT issues at an early age.

The YouTube Censorship Continues: Thought Police Begin the Purge

YouTube has begun to purge accounts that they have decided violate “acceptable thoughts.” The censorship is continuing and exponentially skyrocketing on all social media platforms.

It seems like George Orwell warned us all of this in his iconic book, 1984. Apparently, the government (obviously in bed with big corporations like YouTube and Google) will use companies to make sure no one has any thoughts that are not acceptable to the ruling class.

    • She should have traded her terrier for a German Shepherd; instead of preventing the driver from praying she could have prevented him from ever reproducing!

  1. Today’s Ireland is such a challenge. Like a war has been lost. Enemy troops from across the Muslim world swagger, push and sneer past the hapless locals. The stuff of post ww2 occupation.
    Young feminists embrace the barbarian to mock the native men they need to survive. This will all end very badly – especially for the
    traitors who believe what they believe.

  2. Already the leftists are protesting the outcome of the election. if the tactic works in the USA, its guaranteed to work in the UK.

  3. That’s a shame about Ireland. I wouldn’t wish rape on anyone. But on the other hand, the Irish people practically begged for this to happen. They’re actually proud of all this. When a group of ANY animals are that self-destructive, maybe it’s better to just stand back and let nature take its course. It’s sad to see, but saving them would only prolong their misery. They’ve reached the end of their evolutionary line and want to die out. Forcing them to live would be cruel at this point.
