A “Bank Holiday” is a constant and looming threat since it was first used as a ‘threat’ by the Federal Reserve and key members of Congress
last October to spur the Emergency Passage of the first “Bailout”.
There had been an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) on the banks here in the U.S. by foreign investors in unprecedented amounts and frequency in the
preceding days that led up to the Federal Reserve doubling the amount of FDIC Insurance from 100k to 200k and the announcement of 750 Billion in
additional currency through the Bailout to curtail and dissuade big foreign based depositors from pulling their money from U.S. Banks.
In many ways because there was little mention of these EFT runs prior to the contentious partisan debate that surrounded the first Bailout there is a
good chance that the foreign runs on the bank and flight of foreign capital in them that caused them to begin to teeter was an orchestrated effort on
someone’s, some group’s, or some nation’s behalf.
Had the first Bailout not passed Congress there is a good chance there would have been a Bank Holiday replete with Martial Law.
As long ad the Congress submits to Federal Reserve direction and edict there is likely little chance a Bank Holiday would occur. Congress challenging
the Federal Reserve could though lead to a Bank Holiday.
A Bank Holiday used as a means to impose Martial Law primarily remains possible because it becomes the most palatable way for mainstream citizens to
accept the imposition of Martial Law.
In other words if there are too many Tea Parties, and too many Health Care Demonstrations and a real grassroots campaign to return representative
democracy to the country becomes too disruptive or too serious of a threat to the Government, then the Bank Holiday excuse is the easiest way to sell
Martial Law to those middle of the fence citizens who would then see it as a protection measure to ensure calm and security.
Should they declare a Bank Holiday and Martial Law it is highly doubtful that the Banks will simply open with a new currency or system. It is highly
likely that a new system of everything would then be imposed when Martial Law was lifted. Most people after a two week period would have no food, some
of them in need of critical medicines, and some of them with no money to begin with in the bank or in their pocket before they lost two weeks wages.
This would be the likely strategy used to employ and introduce “Freedom Camps”, “Reeducation Camps” aka FEMA Camps for people who have no
money, no food, no medicines and to intern them while the entire system was being restructured including eventually the introduction of a new
currency, new laws, a new constitution, possibly new borders, a new name for the country/corporation etc., etc.
It basically boils down to this people. The powers that be own and control the infrastructure which includes the banks, the communications networks,
the food distribution networks and transportation networks. If they see that they are in imminent danger of loosing power or having the country
disintegrate into chaos on them, they will shut down these mechanisms that are vital for most people’s day to day life to starve and force people
The threat of a Bank Holiday remains real but those are the things that would trigger it, challenging the Fed, or disrupting the infrastructure
through protest or revolt, or threatening the very existence of the government or the corporate powers that be through protest or revolt.
