How Pimco's Cayman-Based Hedge Fund Can Profit From the Fed's Rescue

The Federal Reserve opened a highly anticipated emergency lending program in June, a revamped version of one that handed sophisticated investors double-digit returns during the 2008 financial crisis. The 2020 version is backed by congressional funding, and the rules stipulate that only American companies can participate as borrowers. For Pimco’s offshore fund, there was an easy way to still benefit.

Trump says US won't protect Germany as it 'pays Russia billions for energy' in 1st tweet after Pentagon announces troop withdrawal

US President Donald Trump has defended his decision to pull out almost 12,000 troops from Germany by invoking its gas imports from Russia. Washington has recently ramped up its efforts to block the deliveries.

US to pull 12,000 troops out of Germany as Trump blasts 'delinquent' Berlin

Of a total of 11,900 personnel that will be leaving Germany under the proposal, 6,400 will be returning to the US, from where they could be used for rotational deployments in eastern Europe and around the world, while 5,600 will be repositioned within other Nato countries, particularly Belgium and Italy.

Mark Esper repeatedly denied that the decision was motivated by Trump’s frequently expressed desire to move troops out of Germany to teach Berlin a lesson for not spending enough on defence. The Pentagon put out a statement saying the withdrawal would “strengthen Nato, enhance the deterrence of Russia” and boost the flexibility of the US military.

Minutes later, the president told journalists at the White House he had ordered the troop withdrawal because Berlin was being “delinquent” by not spending enough on defence.

'Too much power': Congress grills top tech CEOs in combative antitrust hearing

The historic hearing in Washington saw Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Tim Cook of Apple, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Sundar Pichai of Google’s parent Alphabet appear before members of the House judiciary’s antitrust subcommittee and face intense questioning from lawmakers from both sides of the aisle.

The hearing comes at a fraught moment for the tech giants with Republican and Democrats both highly critical of their dominance.

Donald Trump, who has attacked the tech companies on numerous occasions, weighed in ahead of the hearing: “If Congress doesn’t bring fairness to Big Tech, which they should have done years ago, I will do it myself with Executive Orders. In Washington, it has been ALL TALK and NO ACTION for years, and the people of our Country are sick and tired of it!”

The United States has said it expects to move its European military headquarters out of Stuttgart, Germany to Belgium, as it announced broader plans to shift 12,000 troops out of Germany on orders from President Donald Trump.

Some 6,400 active US troops in Germany will be sent home while nearly 5,600 others will be moved to other NATO countries, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said at a news conference on Wednesday. About 24,000 troops will remain in Germany, a country considered one of the US's closest allies and trading partners since World War II.

US hegemonic ambition in S.China Sea cannot be concealed

The latest effort US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made to smear China is to accuse China of regarding the South China Sea as its "maritime empire." In a tweet on Saturday, Pompeo said "the South China Sea is not China's maritime empire," and urged "free nations" to unite to prevent China from taking "more territory." 
The South China Sea conflicts among claimants have been greatly alleviated in recent years. The biggest destabilizing force in the South China Sea situation now is the US. 

The only country that has fully acted in tune with the US in provoking China over the South China Sea issue is Australia, the US' loyal ally

No to the new cold war with China: an African American perspective

China's Ambassador to the US posed a very simple question: "Is the US ready or willing to live with another country with a very different culture, a very different political and economic system ... in peace?"  

For the Black liberation and anti-imperialist movement in the US, we are clear - War is a class issue and we say not one drop of blood from the Black working class and poor to defend the capitalist oligarchy. 

It is important that this position is clear because the US state wants to disconnect the ongoing black struggle for human rights, anti-colonialism, and authentic democracy in the US from the broader anti-colonial and revolutionary struggles and movements globally. 
The US state wants to project our movement as one concerned only with Black Lives or winning "civil rights" or something called racial justice, which objectively is an impossibility for a white supremacist settler colonial state.

Today the language might be coded but its intent to shore up the common interests of the Pan-European colonial/capitalist white supremacist project is absolutely clear. 
That is why BAP says that we must name the Pan-European white supremacist colonial/capitalist patriarchy as an existential threat to all of humanity.  
Our task must be to take away the power that they have to destroy the world.

Donald Trump punit Berlin en retirant près de 12 000 soldats

L’Allemagne comptait jusqu’à présent 36 000 militaires américains sur son territoire. Washington veut ainsi sanctionner Berlin pour avoir refusé d’accroître ses dépenses pour l’armée.

Thomas Wieder y Gilles Paris

Les réserves du Congrès à propos de ce retrait, y compris au sein du Parti républicain, n’ont eu aucun impact sur Donald Trump, qui critique régulièrement le nombre de soldats américains déployés en dehors des frontières des Etats-Unis. Ce nombre est pourtant en baisse constante depuis une décennie et est désormais inférieur à 200 000. L’Asie est la zone qui compte le plus de soldats américains – au Japon et en Corée du Sud –, devant l’Europe.

La guerre des nerfs à la frontière libano-israélienne

Malgré les incidents, les deux camps s’efforcent d’éviter tout engrenage menant à un affrontement généralisé.

Benjamin Barthe y Clothilde Mraffko

L’état-major israélien affirme avoir déjoué une attaque du Hezbollah. Selon lui, un commando de trois à cinq hommes a pénétré de quelques dizaines de mètres au-delà de la « ligne bleue » séparant le Liban d’Israël, avant d’être repéré par l’armée israélienne et de rebrousser chemin sous ses tirs.

La version de la milice libanaise, qui est aussi un parti charnière de la coalition au pouvoir à Beyrouth, diffère complètement. Elle dément toute incursion dans le territoire occupé et attribue les bombardements israéliens à la nervosité de ses ennemis, en alerte maximale depuis la mort d’un membre du Hezbollah, le 20 juillet, dans un raid aérien israélien en Syrie.

L’administration de Donald Trump envoie des agents fédéraux dans trois nouvelles villes : Cleveland, Detroit et Milwaukee

Selon le ministre de la justice, Bill Barr, cela se justifie par la « hausse troublante des crimes violents, particulièrement des homicides ». Ils vont en revanche quitter la ville de Portland, où des manifestations antiracistes sont organisées depuis deux mois.

En parallèle de cette intervention controversée à Portland, l’administration a lancé une opération dans plusieurs villes démocrates sujettes à une hausse des violences par armes à feu, Kansas City, Chicago ou Albuquerque. Celle-ci va être étendue aux trois grandes villes industrielles de la région des Grands Lacs, où une centaine d’agents seront dépêchés dans les semaines à venir, selon le ministère, qui déplore une hausse des homicides de 13 % à Cleveland, 31 % à Detroit et 85 % à Milwaukee depuis le début de l’année.

Boeing va encore ralentir ses cadences de production pour faire face à la crise

Très touché par l’impact de la pandémie sur le transport aérien, l’avionneur a également annoncé devoir « revoir la taille de ses effectifs », sans plus de précisions. Le groupe a déjà prévu la suppression de 16 000 emplois.

Le chiffre d’affaires du groupe a chuté de 25 % au deuxième trimestre à 11,81 milliards de dollars (10 milliards d’euros), ce qui est moins qu’attendu par les analystes. La division fabriquant les avions commerciaux (– 65 %) a particulièrement souffert tandis que la division consacrée à la défense et à l’espace a réussi à stabiliser son revenu.

La trama mexicana del petróleo venezolano

Petróleo venezolano a cambio de maíz y camiones cisterna para agua potable procedentes de México. Es el acuerdo que firmaron en junio de 2019 una empresa mexicana, Libre Abordo, sin experiencia en el sector, y la Corporación Venezolana de Comercio Exterior (Corpovex) —la estatal venezolana encargada de centralizar las importaciones públicas—. Fue una operación en dos contratos valorada en casi 200 millones de euros, según documentos a los que han tenido acceso EL PAÍS y Armando.info como parte de una investigación conjunta, y que evidencian la opacidad del intercambio. El Departamento del Tesoro de Estados Unidos, que investiga el caso, asegura que con este sistema se han despachado más de 30 millones de barriles de crudo, una operación que viola las sanciones estadounidenses sobre Venezuela

la Administración de Nicolás Maduro rechazan que se trate de un negocio oscuro y aseguran que la falta de claridad de los contratos es consecuencia de los problemas que tiene Venezuela para hacer cualquier negocio ante las sanciones impuestas por Estados Unidos. La elección de Libre Abordo, según un alto funcionario, se debe “a la situación de bloqueo”. “No se puede trabajar con las empresas tradicionales de extraída de petróleo, porque las sancionan”, afirma.

Adriana Salvatierra: "Áñez sabe que sólo puede mantenerse en el poder sin elecciones"

El martes el pueblo boliviano salió a las calles para rechazar la tercera postergación de las elecciones presidenciales. La fecha prevista para la votación era el 6 de septiembre. Sin embargo el jueves pasado el Tribunal Supremo Electoral (TSE) de Bolivia pasó los comicios para el 18 de octubre. En las dos oportunidades anteriores había consensuado la fecha con las diferentes fuerzas políticas. Pero esta vez no. La expresidenta del Senado y actual miembro de la Cámara Alta por el Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS), Adriana Salvatierra, calificó la decisión como arbitraria e ilegal. “El gobierno de facto presiona al TSE porque sabe que su única oportunidad de mantenerse en el poder es que no haya elecciones”, sostuvo la senadora en diálogo con Página/12.
