Why Is The Treasury Quietly Ordering ‘Surival Kits’ To Every Major Bank In The United States?

Why Is The US Treasury Quietly Ordering “Surival Kits” For US Bankers? (ZeroHedge, Dec 10, 2014):

The Department of Treasury is spending $200,000 on survival kits for all of its employees who oversee the federal banking system, according to a new solicitation. As FreeBeacon reports, survival kits will be delivered to every major bank in the United States and includes a solar blanket, food bar, water-purification tablets, and dust mask (among other things). The question, obviously, is just what do they know that the rest of us don’t?

As Free Beacon reports,

The Department of Treasury is seeking to order survival kits for all of its employees who oversee the federal banking system, according to a new solicitation.

The emergency supplies would be for every employee at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), which conducts on-site reviews of banks throughout the country. The survival kit includes everything from water purification tablets to solar blankets.

The government is willing to spend up to $200,000 on the kits, according to the solicitation released on Dec. 4.

The survival kits must come in a fanny-pack or backpack that can fit all of the items, including a 33-piece personal first aid kit with “decongestant tablets,” a variety of bandages, and medicines.

The kits must also include a “reusable solar blanket” 52 by 84 inches long, a 2,400-calorie food bar, “50 water purification tablets,” a “dust mask,” “one-size fits all poncho with hood,” a rechargeable lantern with built-in radio, and an “Air-Aid emergency mask” for protection against airborne viruses.

Survival kits will be delivered to every major bank in the United States including Bank of America, American Express Bank, BMO Financial Corp., Capitol One Financial Corporation, Citigroup, Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Company, and Wells Fargo.

The agency has roughly 3,814 employees, each of which would receive a survival kit. The staff includes “bank examiners” who provide “sustained supervision” of major banks in the United States.

It is not clear why the Treasury Department is ordering the kits.

One can only imagine what the Treasury department is thinking will happen in the near-future… while it is indeed good to be prepared, the timing as domestic social unrest ramps up, the driver of the recovery is crashing, and the Fed has stepped away is ‘odd’ to say the least.

  1. It isn’t clear why they are doing this?
    It is very clear to me, the dollar is going to collapse just as soon as the EU leaders dump the dollar. With the madmen in Washington ordering tanks to advance towards Russia, it is becoming obvious to our last remaining friends in the EU that we have corrupt idiots in power, and the US has become a madman on the political stage that must be stopped.
    The simplest way to stop the US warmongering and other horrible rogue behavior is to end it. The collapse of the dollar will stop it all, and that is what the banks are preparing for……………a run on the banks for gold by other nations is already on………………the next run will be on the dollar, as worthless as it may be.
    The game is up for all the reasons I have posted here for the last many days.
    Tonight, reading the US is sending tanks towards Russia tells me the world is going to act.
    Led by Putin, the move will be economic, not military.
    The US has been trying fruitlessly to get into a war with Russia. Oh, how the madmen in power would love to see Russia bomb the west coast…..that would be the excuse they would need, and they mistakenly believe the rest of the world would stand with them………they could not be more wrong.
    This move will cause Germany and the rest of the EU to dump the dollar, and the EU is the only reason it has managed to stay afloat these last months. This move against Russia is insane and without reason or merit.
    The US has now proved itself an enemy of reason, and of the world.
    The world will stand with Russia, the EU will dump the dollar (a cheap alternative to providing troops for some other world power), and the game will stop.
    Whoever is behind the sock puppets we have as politicians has lost his mind.
    It is all over.
    I have tried to warn friends what is coming, few want to face it.
    The game is up.
    The fat lady has not only approached the microphone, she has turned it on.
