Tuesday - The effects of the PTB on the banking system and the despair that is being felt by the American People are too much. The rest of the military joins the people. Washington is surrounded and all politicians are rounded up for trials.
Wednesday - The United States is starting to break up into small republics.
Thursday - TBTB are very happy with the results but then they start being targeted for removal. (I really like this last one)

Anyway, that's my fiction for the day...


That would be a dream!!!

My feeling is this has to do with the Basel accords. Just a guess.

That's all well and good but where's the free beer? Chaos does not live on bread alone!

I just love it when people say we are fear mongering. The thing is TPTB are doing dirty deeds behind closed doors and they are accelerating their plans.

It just seems strange that more people die everyday in car accidents than from the swine flu but we have an emergency declaration the day before "planned" worldwide downtime of the banking system.

If we are fear mongering then what do you call what Obama and the bankers are doing? Instigating? Fine, I can live with that....

I will tell you that I do believe that Saturdays declaration and Sundays banking maintenance are two events that are part of the same plan. The only problem is will they get away with what they are planning?

We have taken a lot in this country and we have just laid back and went with the flow. If they destroy the rest of our illusion of financial independence will we just lay back and take that too? Are they mis-calculating or are they right?

I am looking and all I see in the news is a good bit of talk about atm failures and glitches.


A glitch in the software powering an ATM in a Pennsylvania casino has caused up to 40,000 transactions to fail. The cards were swiped, numbers were entered, withdrawals were processed - but no cash was returned.

I'm hoping someone has mentioned this earlier in the thread, but it is Sunday, just incase everyone has forgotten. Chase works for me right now, as do all my credit card accounts and bank account. Chase is offline EVERY Saturday night/Sunday morning IIRC. They conduct maintenance between these times constantly. Most of my accounts do. They choose times when the least # of people will be online to perform updates, etc. So yes, it is a coincidence that al these banks were down because they were simply updating software, hardware, whatever.

I'm sure all of the "not working" issues for every site mentioned in this thread is no longer true, except perhaps maybe a single site that may still be offline.

Nothing big is happening. This is a regular Sunday.

I hate to burst the bubble but this is all most likely a remnant of the Daylight Savings Time change from 2007 and a need to patch systems to not jump ahead by accident.

My work IT guys told us that our calendars may be borked for a while this week if we didn't have the patch.

I'm pretty sure this is what is going on with the banks out there. Esp if it is happening Saturday night/early Sunday morning.

And everybody are patching it world wide on the same date?

If it was something this simple, it would be in the message to the customers.

Is it possible that there was intel of a possible pending cyber attack on our financial institutions, and that out of an abundance of caution these banks decided to shut down their online access? I'm the furthest thing from a computer expert, but after seeing how many different banks across the country are "coincidentally" down for maintenance at the same time, it made me wonder.

Perhaps there was going to be a major cyber attack that would have crippled our economy and caused widespread panic. That could have very well been the big event that web bot and others have allegedly predicted. Maybe the government took notice and after hearing chatter about a financial attack decided to take a "better safe than sorry" approach. The problem is that all of these banks have to come back online sooner or later, and if an attack was planned, then they are likely just delaying the inevitable.

Of course this is all just guess work on my part. I'm hoping that there is nothing to this but a simple coincidence.


I just saw this and though it could be related.

Scottish financial services industry told to be on guard
against terrorists targeting computer networks
Scotland on Sunday


Major structural changes resulting from the financial crisis present opportunities for thieves both inside and outside companies.

Figures from the CBI show that financial crime costs the UK about £20 billion a year, with individuals losing at least £2.75bn.

Disgruntled former employees supplying information to criminals or low-paid staff being bribed or blackmailed into handing over data are among the key risks, the SFCG will warn at its annual conference on (last) Thursday.

Electronic – or "cyber" – crime will also be on the agenda, with security experts exploring the threat of "cybergeddon", a term coined by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to describe a terrorist attack on computer infrastructure.

Senior FBI figures have described "cybergeddon" as the third greatest threat to the United States, behind the use of weapons of mass destruction or conventional bombs.

The FBI is worried that terrorists may try to destroy computer networks, crippling the financial markets and even bringing down public utilities that rely on electronic networks to control power distribution.

I can attest with 100% certainty that the sky over central Indiana has not yet succumb to gravitational overbearance. It is indeed maintaining altitude.

Oh yeah, my bank (Chase) seems to be fine as well.

Maybe you're right. But Occam's Razor exists for a reason...the simplest reason is most often the correct one.

No "maintenance" here, I just logged into my Regions account just fine. Unfortunately the account balance is still as small as it was yesterday


Oh well, if the SHTF at least I won't be overburdened with a bunch of worthless dollars

I also noticed this. All it also spans other sites that do “money” transactions. It always makes me question. When I tell my friends they don’t care or make it out to be some big coincidence. Maybe they are managed by the same security firm.

My piddly little four-branch hometown bank is down with the explanation that it is performing a Disaster Recovery Test. They never do anything like this. They do maintenenace at 3 a.m. to 4 a.m.
