Internet Abuzz as ATMs Stop Working – Prelude to a Bank Holiday Suspected
By Mac Slavo|SHTFPlan.com
Numerous financial institutions experienced problems with ATM machines Sunday morning, providing some insight into what it might look like if the President institutes a bank holiday, long rumored to be part of the globalist agenda to take down the U.S. dollar:
Following rumors of a “bank holiday” that could limit or prevent altogether cash withdrawals later this week, Twitter and other Internet forums were raging yesterday about numerous ATMs across the country that crashed in the early hours of Sunday morning, preventing customers from performing basic transactions.
It’s unknown whether the crashes were partly a result of a surge of people trying to withdraw their money in preparation for any feared bank shutdown, or if mere technical glitches were to blame. The fact that the problem affected numerous different banks in different parts of the U.S. would seem to indicate the former.
The Orange County Register reported that the problems were “part of a national outage” which prevented people from performing simple transactions such as cashing checks and withdrawing money.
“Twitter is going crazy with reports of ATMs and online accounts going down as of 01:00 hours EST of the 7th of November 2010,” writes Brennan [blogger, reporter]. “This is happening to many banks all across America. Some are trying to say that it is a computer glitch to do with the change in Daylight Savings Time, but I will call BS on this as we manage to put our clocks back over here in the UK without knocking out ATMs and online accounts nationally.”
Brennan questions whether the outages were the first warning shots in a move to “devalue the dollar,” just days after Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke sparked an international currency war by announcing that the Fed will buy $600 billion of U.S. government bonds over the next eight months.
The fact that more than ten different banks had the same issues suggests that it could have been a problem with the clocks within the bank ATM software. We’d like to believe that this was a “glitch” due to the Daylight Savings change, but you never know.
In the news this week is the G20 meeting where China and Russia are putting serious public pressure on the U.S. government regarding our quantitative easing policies, with China going so far as to imply that it is the U.S., not China, that is the currency manipulator.
