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 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...

Pay me 12% and I'll consider buying this high risk debt.

Lack of "aggregrate demand" for treasuries leading to business decision to quit paying domain hosting?

Go fetch that electronic printing press, and cut a damn debt instrument, Bernank!

CPL's picture'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.

Yup, it is working now. Had me worried. What would we do without a Treasury Department?

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

Worked for me. The "Tarp Tracker" was the first thing to pop up. What a sham.

With Chalky's $100 mil price tab for his trip to the dark continent, something has to go. Attention sheeple; we must have our photo ops.

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.

Has anyone called NSA Customer Support?

With all their beady little eyes

And flapping heads so full of lies

Blame Canada! 

Blame Canada!

It seems that everything's gone wrong

Since Canada came along

Blame Canada!

Blame Canada!

With all their hockey hullabaloo

And that bitch Anne Murray, too

Blame Canada!

Did you say down for 10 hours?
Wait till it's down for 10 days.
Or wait until it goes down and never comes up again.

As part of our budget-cutting regime, we've moved all communications to this vintage acoustic-coupled 300 baud modem and 6502 8-bit computer.

The Commodore C-64 was one of the best computers of all time!

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.
