People’s reactions to Murdoch being raided are absolutely priceless

The Commission will reportedly be sifting through Fox‘s office until Thursday. Let’s hope that the paper shredders and recycle bins at Fox haven’t been too busy. As the last time Murdoch was involved in a major scandal, his staff allegedly “destroyed millions of emails and hundreds of computer hard drives”. Move along. Nothing to see here, guvnor.

Then They Came for the Globalists

(23.3.2018) Fortunately, the lexicography experts in the corporate media and the Anti-Defamation League cleared that up for me earlier this month. According to these experts, words like “globalist” and “globalism” don’t really mean anything. They are simply Nazi code words for “the Jews.” There is actually no such thing as “globalism,” or “global capitalism,” or “transnational capitalism,” or “supranational quasi-governmental entities” like the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization, the European Commission, and the European Central Bank … or, OK, sure, there are such entities, but there is no legitimate reason to discuss them, or write about them, or even casually mention them, and anyone who does is definitely a Nazi.

PSD2 – the directive that will change banking as we know it

Through the directive, the European Commission aims to improve innovation, reinforce consumer protection and improve the security of internet payments and account access within the EU and EEA. It introduces two new types of players to the financial landscape: PISP and AISP. AISP (Account Information Service Provider) are the service providers with access to the account information of bank customers. Such services could analyze a user’s spending behavior or aggregate a user’s account information from several banks into one overview. PISP (Payment Initiation Service Provider) are the service providers initiating a payment on behalf of the user. P2P transfer and bill payment are PISP services we are likely to see when PSD2 is implemented.
