Bankocalypse drill: US and UK to run ‘too big to fail’ collapse simulation (RT, Oct 11, 2014):

The US and UK will stage a comprehensive simulation next week check whether the countries’ financial and banking sectors are still vulnerable to the problem of the ‘too big to fail’ institutions and coordinate their actions in case of such collapse.

Government financial leaders from Britain and US will simulate a failure of a large banking institution on Monday in Washington, DC, to test the effectiveness of each county’s banking regulations.

They hope the simulation – which will not mimic the collapse of any particular ‘too big to fail’ institution – will demonstrate what the officials have learned from the financial crisis about their respective roles, and how new practices should shield taxpayers from further bailouts. The simulation will run through procedures if a large UK bank with US operations failed, and those for a US bank with a British presence.

We are going to make sure we can handle an institution that was previously regarded as too big to fail,” said UK chancellor, John Osborne, speaking to journalists at an International Monetary Fund meeting in Washington on Friday. “This demonstrates the distance we have come over the last few years to build resilience and learn the lessons of the financial crisis.”

Participating in the “war game” along with Chancellor Osborne will be US Treasury secretary Jack Lew, head of the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen, and the governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney, with senior officials from both countries.

The purpose of the simulation was to make sure every player, including politicians, knew their own responsibilities and who needed to act, which creditors would take a hit, and how to communicate the authorities’ actions to the public,” Osborne told the Financial Times.

the only winning move is not to play RT @vgmac On Monday, US and UK regulators will “war game” a big bank failure. http://t.co/b7RWCsngYU

It has been six years since the 2008 financial crisis when $700 billion in taxpayer dollars was used to shore up failing institutions, besides the cost of other bailout programs such as for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that totalled at least $135 billion more. The financial crisis lead to mass unemployment, drastic cuts to US government social programs, and contributed to the economic downfall of several European states.

Since then regulations have passed in the US – the Dodd Frank Act of 2010 that forced banks to have in place capital and to draw up plans of how they would go through an ordinary bankruptcy and which groups would be paid off first.

Next week’s simulation, the results of which are expected to be released to the public, is designed to reassure the taxpayers in both UK and the US that their money will not be misused next time when a large financial institution turns out to be not that big to fail.

Oh, another ‘drill’ like 9/11, the London 7-7 bomb attacks, the Boston Marathon bombing drill and the Sandy Hook FEMA drill coming our way?

Probably just a coincidence that there is always a f****** drill going on, right?

“The easiest way to carry out a false flag attack is by setting up a military exercise that simulates the very attack you want to carry out.”
– Captain Eric H. May, former U.S. Army military intelligence officer
And another coincidence:

… “someone” canceled-and-replaced orders for 666 contracts 26 times in the 1130ET to 1200ET period…

And here is one more:

Remember the S&P 500 low of 666 in 2009?

  1. I don’t know about 666, or any of that, I do find it beyond ironic they are running this so-called bank drill the very week the FED turns off the tap. No more $80 billion a month…….and suddenly, they are running another bank failure drill.

    I still maintain the next step of the FED (a private bank) might well be to stop paying the interest on the US National Debt…….

  2. Wait a moment…….

    On 9/11/2001 there was a drill/exercise to simulate an attack on USA.

    On 7/7/2005 there was an exercise in London to simulate a bombing on the London Underground.

    On 4/15/2013 there was an exercise in Boston, Ma. to simulate a terrorist bomb going off during the Marathon.

    All three of these events proved to be the foundation for False Flag events, opening the door for greater control of the sheeple via fear and police state management..

    Are we now to expect the Economy & Banks to collapse simultaneously as we have forecasted for four years….is the “exercise” really the trigger this time?
