ZeroHedge – $242 Billion: That Is How Much Record “Window Dressing” Banks Got Today Thanks To The Fed – 31 March 2014

ZeroHedgeThe last time banks scrambled to pad their books into the quarter end, and come begging at the front door of the NY Fed’s Liberty 33 office, was on the last day of Q4 and 2013, when nearly $200 billion in Treasurys were handed out by the Fed to over 100 counterparties in what was the largest reverse repo operation conducted by Ben Bernanke, and his brand new Fixed-Rate Reverse Repo operation, in history.

That was the record until today, when just over an hour ago the Fed disclosed that as part of its most recent reverse repo operation, it had handed out to 93 dealer banks and other financial intermediaries, both foreign and domestic, some $242 billion in Treasurys in what is now the biggest reverse repo operation in history, a privilege for which the collateral-starved banks paid the Fed the king’s ransom of 0.05% in annual interest, i.e., nothing.

‘EU More Worried About Its Reputation, Not Extremism In Ukraine’ – 31 March 2014

RT logoBrussels was busy with downplaying the role of the violent groups that influenced the so-called revolution in Ukraine, but now when it cannot be hidden anymore they have to distance themselves from the Right Sector,journalist Manuel Ochsenreiter told RT.

Brussels was busy with downplaying the role of the violent groups that influenced the so-called revolution in Ukraine, but now when it cannot be hidden anymore they have to distance themselves from the Right Sector, German journalist Manuel Ochsenreiter told RT.

RT: Moscow’s been vocal about the extremist threat in Ukraine from the very beginning. Why only now is it worrying the EU?

Manuel Ochsenreiter: The EU is not worried about extremism or about violence in Ukraine. The European Union is actually worried about its own reputation, about the reputation of Brussels because they were busy with downplaying the role of these disgusting violent hooliganism groups taking influence on the so-called revolution in Ukraine. So now when it cannot be hidden anymore: they have to go on distance. This is the whole background of the condemning and of the criticism of Brussels against the Right Sector right now.

Turkey Elections: Erdogan Won’t Show White Flag – 31 March 2014

RT logoAuthor: Nadezhda Kevorkova is a war correspondent who has covered the events of the Arab Spring, military and religious conflicts around the world, and the anti-globalization movement.

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Recep Erdogan announced that recent local elections were a test of his popularity and he won. What is next?

Erdogan’s ruling party received around 45 percent of the national vote and won in Istanbul and Ankara, running neck-in-neck with the main opposition party.

The art of keeping people on their toes

Tensions were mounting throughout the entire Sunday. Voting stations in the east of Turkey stopped working at 4pm – in the west of the country at 5pm.

The sad news about fatal clashes among voters in Hatay fueled the concerns. By the evening, the knifing among villagers became more of “an armed conflict at the Syrian-Turkish border.”

RT logoIrish MP Joe Higgins has rounded on Western nations for supporting “xenophobic, semi-fascist” elements within the Kiev’s new government. He accused the EU of using hardline groups such as the Right Sector to push a neoliberal agenda in Ukraine.

In a question to the Irish Prime Minister, or Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, Dublin West MP Joe Higgins accused his government of hypocrisy and challenged him to explain his support of the West’s policy on Ukraine. While he maintained Russia should be condemned for its interference in Ukraine, Higgins argued this could not justify “installing a worse neoliberal economic regime” in Kiev. Continue reading
