    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

The US Treasury Website Has Been Down (For Some) For 10 Hours And Counting

Tyler Durden's picture


UPDATE: It appears the site is up for some (premium members?)

When we first noticed, we assumed Treasury.gov was down for un-scheduled maintenance, but now, 10 hours later, it appears the site is down for other reasons? Overwhelmed by NSA DDoS attacks (as government pension funds seek more information on where their investments are heading)? Sequestration claimed the Webmaster? Hacked? Or simply the first cost-cutting measure for a Fed who just suffered their largest loss ever in a quarter (of course, that is, if they were bound by 'normal' mark-to-market rules). There are no explanations as yet.

Let's just hope this doesn't happen when the gold price begins to take off, otherwise there'll be no one around to stop it...

Disclaimer: I think the NSA and Obama are just fuckin' peachy...

No...it's what you get with nepotism and hiring family to 'take care' of infrastructre instead of hiring pros.  Silver spoon doesn't mean smart.  Just means someone fell out of the right woman.

If we have learned anything, the Fed and Treasury explain nothing. Ask them no questions and they tell no lies.

Worth repeating. There is no such thing as a "FED loss", not in REAL terms, anyway. Their cost basis was zero to print the money they used to buy the assets, so they are ahead unless the assets go to zero, in which case they are breakeven. If you want to know who took the losses in REAL terms, look in the mirror.

Since Canada came along

And that bitch Anne Murray, too

Wait till it's down for 10 days.
Or wait until it goes down and never comes up again.

Doesn't matter. Print and pay. Why even bother to account for anything at the fiat level? Big banks may need accounting to make sure regulators aren't fining them more than they made on the drug money laundering, but for the Treasury, let's just call it even and not bother with the paperwork.

A Treasury website seems a little redundant.

That's a globalist website. The US no longer has a Treasury.
