Presenting The Complete Fed Discount Window Data Dump

Tyler Durden's picture

Update: the link should be working fine now.

While Zero Hedge ploughs through 25,000 or so pages of just declassified information focusing on the Discount Window, but containing previously undisclosed information on the entire alphabet soup of systemic rescue facilities, and prepare to present our findings shortly, we would like to facilitate the crowdsourcing effort in perusing the data which the Fed has made prohibitively difficult to access (only distributed on physical CD), by uploading the entire data dump at the following link.

Our very preliminary question is whether the Fed really expects the US public to believe it does not keep track of the collateral it lends Discount Window money against, and if that rhetoric question is false, then why is collateral data not disclosed?

Link not working?

Dr. Richard Head's picture

Not on my end.  Either bandwidth consumed by too many people at once or...(place tin foil atop the head)

You mean you take you tin foil hat off during the day?  Are you nuts?

malikai's picture

It's downloading for me. Perhaps its because I switched to a silver-foil hat.

Also, good job FED. Love the PDF format and craptic naming scheme.

Internet p0rn is so 1990's...  I thought that fad would fade by now.

Speaking of Porn,  who's the "Jack off"  in the advertising block that keeps showing up.

What a puke, whoops, that's what his wife must do when she thinks of sucking on it.


rocker's picture

Oh, yeah. Thanks for the download Tyler.  Will be reading for the next year. 5 minute download on highspeed. Whooo.

Cdad's picture


Just regular tin foil hats here, and the download worked.  However, I'm too afraid to open them for fear that some criminal syndicate Wall Street banker will receive a signal that I have opened a file.

I cannot have anything happen to the breeding pair of unicorns I picked up at the ranch yesterday.  They are looking in the window at me and smiling even now  --:)

They seriously only provided it in PDF?  Assholes.


Dr. Richard Head's picture

Wait, I though tin foil hats as an indication of nuts, but then again...

My brother is a paramedic and he showed me the roll of tin foil that is kept on the ambulance.  It is indeed used to calm down patients who are nuts by making hats for all in the squad to wear.

If Bernanke began to parade around wearing a tin foil hat, I may begin to feel better about the whole economic situation.

I'd feel happier if he wore a plutonium hat!

Well said SG - and we just happen to know of a place where such a hat can be procured....even comes with FREE ONE WAY AIRLINE TICKETS to FUKUSHIMA, accommodations at the Daichi facility, & what the hell throw in a year supply of Rice-a-Roni...besides Ben can assist in TD's newest series - Yentervention (for Central Bankers)

It would go hand in hand with the fission process between his ears....

Dr. Richard Head's picture

True.  At least then he would have an excuse as being a FUCKTARD.  That arrogant prick ass motherfucker has been facilitating worldwide hunger, wars of aggression, lowered standards of living for 99.99% of the population while enriching the .01%.  When will the Muslims finally call for a Jihad against this financial terrorist?  I mean, Benny’s style is in full conflict with Sharia law.  Benny is THE infidel.

Someone needs to throw this in a torrent, and get it up on PirateBay and the like.  I'll do it this weekend if no one beats me to it.

obama is busted...SS number from CT...denninger

EscapeKey's picture

As soon as I saw the name "Orly Taitz" I stopped reading.

Seriously, how many fakes has she claimed is the real certificate!!!eleventyone11 by now?

aVian's picture

this guy got the SS number

Retired Air Force Col. Gregory Hollister impersonated Obama with the Selective Service and managed to get a card with President Obama’s Selective Service information on it, a blogger posted on last week.

cosmictrainwreck's picture

Well, let's hope they draft his ass; damn, I forgot we don't have a draft. Barry will probably skate before they ram it through. Try another angle 

macholatte's picture

no matter what, Orly Taitz or not, Obama is hiding something and getting a lot of help doing it which is a felony. So the only questions are these:

1 - will the truth ever be known?

2 - will the gaggle of criminals ever see a minute of jail time?


my guess, NO on both counts.


Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.

Unable to scan file for viruses

MightyZum's picture

Boy, Bernanke is good . . .

tmosley's picture

I can't get it to download.  It says it is unable to scan for viruses due to technical difficulties.  When I click "download anyway", it spins its wheels for a fraction of a second, and then the progress bar disappears, but there is no download.

I saw Geitner do that.
