Fire Breaks Out On The Roof Of The New York Fed

Tyler Durden's picture

Dozens of firefighters are fighting a blaze which broke out on the top of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, NBC New York reports. The fire broke out sometime before 8:40 p.m. on the roof of the 14-story building at 33 Liberty St. in Lower Manhattan, the location of the world's biggest gold vault as Simon Gruber knows too well.

Several videos show numerous fire trucks at the scene around 9 p.m. 

Contrary to recurring rumors that the fire was created from excess money creation, the FDNY said that a generator on the roof of the building caused the fire in a chimney, although the severity of the damage to the building is not known.

No injuries have been reported.

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York is the most important of the 12 regional Reserve Banks that are part of the Federal Reserve system, the central banking system of the United States. As previously reported, the world's most important trading desk, also known as the "Plunge Protection Team", is located on the 9th floor of the New York Fed.

Here are some snapshots.

Nah, it will rather collapse into its footprint than getting audited.

No standby generator means no FED activity during a power outage.  Sounds like a setup.  Power outage in NYC soon before it can be repaired.  Trump's crisis within a week.

But what to do with that creepy club named Eurogroup that is jewing us? We can't really audit that...

  Arghh>   damn-it, all the printers and ink are in the basement.  It's a good start though. Maybe all the microwave towers that are linked to Citadel got scorched?

Having sent in two IT experts dressed as fireman to jack in their

New Silver Stuxnet virus in the alarm system, over the next week,

'Israeli art students' will be moving large and heavy 'exhibits' in 

and out of the Fed, then on the Monday after Simchat Torah, the

vault will be found filled with Chinese tungsten fools gold ingots.

But Fed won't tell anyone. The only way you'll know is the next

pagan festival to Moloch, when Mnuchin flies in with his schiksa,

and declare the Fed horde 'as good as gold, and as right as rain'.

If you find treasure interesting, try: Defense.gov/news/contracts

where a $BILLION a day of your kids' inheritence is disappearing!

WINNING! MAZEL TUV!!

Somebody armed up and tried a citizen's arrest of the Fed goveners a few years ago. I think he's still doing time. At this point, the way things are going, I think it's OK to wait them out.

But good question.

There will be signs in the Heavens and in the Earth.......That word Heavens translates into Sky (Grab yourself an original Strong's Concordance.)

In the KJV at least, I'm not sure about the 1000 stepped on Versions of the Bible.

That is an Omen.

I had my roof catch fire once, it was when I came home from working a 12 to 16 hour day and everything nice in the house had gone, the Wife had emptied the thousands out of the bank and taken the kid's and the best car. She got bored I guess.(Fucked around with Joe Millionaire jnr, while I was killing myself to make things better.) Then there am I thinking everything's gone to shit because I WORKED TO HARD ? Certainly out of balance. Then the fucking air conditioner caught fire. that was some Omen shit right there. 30 years ago, when I found out that working hard is not the path anymore. It is an Omen. sorry it's not logical enough for most but True Story.Firemen on the roof hacking at burning roof. I will not forget that shit, ever. And I learned much, too.

Fascinating....  Glad I'm not the only one.  Hate to tell you but it probably wasn't an omen, it was you.  It was time.  An omen is something like when 40 crows land in your yard and damn near squawk themselves to death as you find out somebody just dies... then it happens again... and again.  That's an omen.  Yours was more of what Castenada would call "an agreement".  Life is weird.  Hate to tell you but I already had you pegged for that.  It takes one to know one.  Having said that, I still hope you're right.
