My latest work is using Science and Logic to Prove the Existence of God


Over the past 30 some years I have been studying about the various theories regarding how we exist. By that I mean that we can think and have Free Will; and that allows us to make choices in what we do — we can do what is right or we can do things that are wrong, its our choice. In my studies I found that science doesn’t allow for that to happen its called the Hard Problem!

The attached book contains an analysis of this problem this book is the result of decades of research and thinking. The only conclusion I could come up with is there has to be a God as its the only way we can actually exist. The following image is on the cover of the book and it represents creation. The picture was constructed with God shown as creating the universe, using the art concept discovered by CG Jung and described in his book, The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious. Jung found that all cultures had common believes and those beliefs were represented in art. Many of the art works he showed in his book are similar to the one I created here, and they are called mandalas.

Travel Bans are Racist if Implemented by the Right


Armstrong Economics Blog/Corruption Re-Posted Nov 30, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

In 2020, when the pandemic began, Joe Biden accused then President Trump of being a racist xenophobe for implementing a travel ban on Africa. The mainstream media ran with the story, as it pushed the narrative that the right was inherently racist. Now, Joe Biden has implemented an “African ban,” against South Africa and several other African nations. Nearly all stories reported by the media begin by stating “South Africa,” not because the omicron variant was detected there, but because the public associates South Africa with having a large “white” population. The omicron variant has been detected in non-African nations, but the White House did not issue an immediate travel ban on those countries.

Biden accused Trump of xenophobic fear-mongering for implementing a travel ban on China. The term “China virus” was twisted by clever journalists to make it seem as if it were a racist term rather than simply the country where COVID originated. Once the “UK variant” came out, the media outlets had no qualms reporting on it using that terminology. They only transitioned the name to “delta” once they were called out for hypocrisy. Politics aims to divide the people. The narrative that one political party is inherently racist is a low tactic that supports biased voting efforts on the pretense of ethics. Take note of how the media and politicians are aiming to deceive you using rhetoric.

Lara Logan hit Dr. Anthony Fauci and the cabal of science manipulators with the atomic sledgehammer during her remarks today about the latest COVID variant omicron and the political crew who manipulate the public through fear.  {Direct Rumble Link}

In this segment, Ms. Logan is subtle as a brick through a window as she compares Dr. Fauci and his beagle killing narcissism to the ideological efforts of Dr. Josef Mengele.  She’s not the first person to make that comparison.  WATCH:

Joe Biden Declares Everything is Okay After Meeting With Retail Executives


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on November 29, 2021 | Sundance | 151 Comments

Earlier today, Joe Biden met with a roundtable group of retail executives and CEO’s.  The topics of the discussion were supply chain issues and current impacts to businesses that are causing rapid inflation.

At the conclusion of the meeting there was supposed to be a press conference where Biden was going to outline what his administration is doing to combat the ever-increasing problem of inflation.   However, moments before the public remarks were scheduled to begin, the White House cancelled them.  Instead, the people managing Joe Biden sent out the following tweet:

According to the White House messaging, everything is wonderful – there is no cause for concern, the supply chain crisis has been handled, shortages are no longer present, shelves are full, the clouds have parted and Santa is enjoying his time preparing for Christmas by watching unicorns play with the reindeer.  Baghdad Bob would be proud.

If the narrative is true, if there is so much good news to share, then why cancel the remarks and press conference about inflation?

One likely scenario is the retail CEO’s told the White House about: (1) upcoming additional price increases due to energy policy; and (2) the latest news from China where the shipment of goods is going to go from bad (slow) to much worse (a virtual halt):

(CNBC) – […] Helen Zhu, managing director at Hong Kong-based investment firm Nan Fung Trinity echoed similar sentiments about China’s response.

“If omicron turns out to be a major threat, I think China will certainly continue to lengthen the period of staying isolated,” she said on CNBC’s “Street Signs Asia” on Monday. […]  China’s ultra-strict zero-Covid strategy involves mass lockdowns — even if just one or a handful of cases are detected. It also includes extensive testing, heavily controlled or closed borders, as well as robust contact tracing systems and quarantine mandates.

The Asian giant has also implemented strict checks at its ports, including monitoring ships and cargo, to prevent cases from slipping into the country. (read more)

Beijing is cunning.  They know Biden is weak politically and personally.  Everything they can do to increase the impact of inflation weakens the U.S. economy, and China can do an awful lot on the supply side to create even more U.S. inflation.

Biden’s globalist policies in general make the U.S. Main Street economy very vulnerable; however, Biden’s energy policies specifically make that vulnerability exponentially worse.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Says Lockdowns are Not an Option Regardless of What Variant They Come Up With


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on November 29, 2021 | Sundance | 120 Comments

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded to the remarks from Dr. Anthony Fauci yesterday and from Joe Biden earlier today about the new Omicron variant of COVID and the possibility of lockdowns.

The Governor was very specific and clear about no lockdowns when he spoke today at an event to celebrate increased salaries and bonuses for law enforcement officers in the state.  Florida will continue to emphasize prevention, optional vaccinations, therapeutics and quick responsive treatment – with accessible monoclonal antibody treatments – as the state COVID mitigation protocol.  WATCH:

So far, the approach by Florida Governor DeSantis has been effective as the state now holds one of the lowest COVID infection rates in the nation, yet the state is wide open and free from any mandates or restrictions.  If people want to live in fear, they can go live somewhere else.

Federal Judge Blocks Biden Healthcare Worker Vaccine Mandate


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on November 29, 2021 | Sundance | 99 Comments

A federal judge in the Eastern District of Missouri has blocked the federal vaccine mandate contained in the medicare and medicaid rules for healthcare workers.  [pdf ruling available here] Previously the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMMS) issued a regulation requiring healthcare workers at facilities participating in Medicare and Medicaid to get vaccinated. This ruling is even more influential, as the workers protected in the ten states are specifically inside the healthcare industry.

(Business Insider) […] Judge Matthew Schelp of the Eastern District of Missouri issued the preliminary injunction for workers at Medicare- and Medicaid-certified medical facilities in Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, New Hampshire, Nebraska, Wyoming, and North and South Dakota, court documents said.

The 10 states had sued the Biden administration, saying the vaccine mandate was unconstitutional.

Schelp — whom President Donald Trump nominated to the bench in 2019 — said the public would benefit from the ruling “because it would ensure that federal agencies do not extend their power beyond the express delegation from Congress.”  […] The Medicare and Medicaid regulation is what Monday’s ruling was about. The agency has said that rule affects 17 million workers at 76,000 healthcare facilities nationwide. (read more)

Hopefully the judicial commonsense becomes, well, more common.

JoeBamaNomics, Oil and Energy Analysts Indicate $100 Barrel Crude Costs By End of This Year, The Biden Team Really Need Omicron


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on November 29, 2021 | Sundance | 190 Comments

JP Morgan is emphasizing that U.S. energy policy is likely to end up with $150-$200 per barrel oil costs in next year ($10/gal gasoline).  [LINK] Whether that dire prediction comes true is anyone’s guess.  However, consensus review makes nearing $100/barrel costs by the end of this year just as unnerving. ($6/gal gasoline).  That outcome is the centerpiece for why Biden needs the Omicron variant to impact the demand side urgently.

New York – […] “We believe the evolution of coal prices might reflect supply, demand, cost of capital and energy transitioning issues for all fossil fuels, and it would certainly be possible that oil prices will follow the same pattern (inflation adjusted for oil, that would be in a $150-200/bbl range),” wrote a team of JPMorgan Chase & Co. strategists led by Marko Kolanovic. (read more)

This analysis essentially aligns with CTH outlooks and complements what Allianz Group chief economic advisor, Mohamed El-Erian, was saying yesterday [LINK]  The Biden energy policy is specifically to blame for the current price increases across the entire energy sector.

All of Biden energy policy, and all of Biden spending around the Build Back Better agenda, is designed to take us from where we are now into some distant place where fossil fuels are not the energy mechanism; that’s the Green New Deal component of this.  However, there is no policy for their transition – they stopped all current energy policy around oil and coal.

Biden halted pipelines, cancelled oil and gas leases, blocked expanded refinery capacity and regulated the entire U.S. oil industry into a place of diminished capacity.  That is why energy prices have, as Obama promised,  “necessarily skyrocketed.”  And, we ain’t seen nothing yet.  Depending on how cold it is this winter, you can expect natural gas and home heating oil to double in the next few months.

The near horizon looks pretty clear.  Gasoline will keep rising fast and will cost $6 to $7/gal before next spring.   There is no way under current Joe Biden policy to avoid this, unless he was to completely abandon his energy policy; that’s not likely.  The climate change ideologues, academics and far-left communists behind the Biden policy are not likely to see the catastrophic economic damage as a bad thing, instead they will likely say it’s the new normal.

With that level of supply side economic chaos seemingly unavoidable, the only way for Biden to try and mitigate political damage is an attempt to halt the demand side.  That’s why the administration needs Omicron.

It is more important for our government to use Omicron than all other governments because we are the spending and ideological center. That is why we are seeing a much bigger emphasis upon the fear of Omicron by our government; and that is why the descending levels of variant emphasis/fear fall in line depending on how closely other nations are aligned as allies.

Meanwhile… China, Iran and Russia (adversaries on an ideological level) know what is happening, and to the extent they can drive U.S. inflation even higher, they will.  Our adversaries know how to use Biden’s policy to make massive inflation hurt the U.S. disproportionately. This is why OPEC is giving Biden the middle finger on his ‘request’ to increase oil production, and this is why China is now triggering shipping quarantines. (more)

Again, as repeated previously, our window to prepare for a massive jump in inflation is slowly closing.  We are down to around 60 days, and then things will get really ugly.  The people behind Joe Biden know this.  Omicron is a tool they are attempting to use to moderate the speed of impact within the inflation window.

WASHINGTON – […] The main driver behind oil prices is supply and demand. And while the Omicron COVID-19 variant put a dent into oil prices on Friday, with investors fearing that potential country lockdowns would reduce travel and therefore lower demand for oil, JPMorgan viewed that price move as an overreaction.

“We believe the market may overestimate the impacts of the recent emergence of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 on oil prices during the US holiday period,” JPMorgan said in a Monday note, inferring that there will be little to no slowdown in holiday travels even as the Omicron variant spreads.

[…] With demand for oil likely to remain steady, supply will remain the key driver behind oil prices for years to come. And with OPEC+ “being firmly in the driver’s seat for oil prices,” JPMorgan thinks Brent will hit $120/bl in 2022, and could even overshoot to $150/bl in 2023, representing potential upside of as much as 100% from current levels.

Biden Administration Tells Federal Agencies Not To Suspend or Remove Federal Workers Over Unconstitutional Vaccine Mandate


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on November 29, 2021 | Sundance | 214 Comments

There has always been strong cynicism amid those who accept the intellectual argument that everything around COVID-19 is political.  From that viewpoint, the federal vaccine mandate was always just a Biden talking point, a way to weaponize a fear they created and create controlled division.  A memorandum circulating today lends evidence to that perspective.

WASHINGTON DC – The White House’s Office of Management and Budget is telling federal agencies they should hold off on suspending or firing federal workers for not complying with the vaccine mandate until after the holidays, according to a memo obtained by ABC News.

This change, which has not yet been publicly announced, comes as President Joe Biden is putting pressure on private employers to embrace their own vaccine mandates.

Ninety-two percent of federal workers have already had at least one vaccine dose, according to the Office of Management and Budget. The federal workforce’s compliance rate stands at 96.5%, meaning employees have had at least one vaccine dose or have a pending or approved exception or extension request. (link)

If the latest Omicron variant was factually all that Biden is claiming it to be, this contradiction would not be evident – but it is.  However, the exponentially and rapidly climbing list of contradictions and hypocrisies from officials, institutions and agencies can all be reconciled with one simple acceptance: It’s all political. All of it. Every element, no matter how granular or big picture, is all political.

It is also important to note the recent NBC poll on this issue amid the outlook of the vaccine mandates.  A majority of the country do not support the vaccine mandates, and worse still, the number of unvaccinated workers is essentially unwavering in the past six weeks {poll data}.  Remember, the number of Americans who willingly quit their jobs increased to 4.3 million in August {link}, and then increased again to 4.4 million in September {link}. People are not f**king around now.

Federalist v Ant-Federalist / Vaccinated v Anti-Vaccinated


Armstrong Economics Blog/America’s Economic History Re-Posted Nov 29, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Hi Mr. Armstrong,

Thanks for all you do and all your hard work!

I have a question I was hoping you would comment on. I have been trying to wrap my head around the hows (not the whys) of the absurd consequences of this plandemic.  What it reminds me of is the fight between the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists during the ratification process of the Constitution. I was taught the Bill of Rights bridged the gap between the issues back then and obviously satisfied their differences since the ratification went through.

Today, it seems as if there is no Bill of Rights and no possible bridge to balance political differences. There are tyrannical federal policies (under the guise of public health/national security) and the lawsuits from state AGs, governors and private organizations to prevent these policies.  This is the obvious recourse.  But it seems this is not enough and more importantly this recourse will not prevent the same thing from happening again in the future.

So my question is what recourse did the Anti-Federalists have (after the Bill of Rights were added to the Constitution) to address their worst fears? Elections? Overthrowing the government?

Are the Bill of Rights being violated just during this cycle of history?  Or is there really no other recourse besides arming ourselves if the police decide not to support the people?

JC

ANSWER: The recourse of the anti-Federalists was separation which led to the American Civil War. What you are saying is only partly true. They voted on the Constitution without the Bill of Rights. They got it through only on a majority vote of 39 out of 70 attendants. To the surprise of most, the United States was wrongfully created and the Federalists won at first, but it was the opposite party of Jefferson that eventually took down the Federalist Party.

It was Alexander Hamilton who led the charge to ratify the Constitution. He solicited John Jay and James Madison, and together they would create a series of 85 articles, published in the New York newspapers between October 27, 1787, and August 16, 1788, which became known as the Federalist Papers. It was Hamilton who chose the title of The Federalist, which was at that moment a controversial act of political aggression since it was the anti-Constitutionalists were actually for federalism insofar as it was a union. By entitling this article series The Federalist, Hamilton would take the high ground by asserting that the Constitution represented a better version of federalism than the Articles of Confederation.

Whiskey-Rebellion

Once federalism took hold, it quickly became self-evident that the people overthrew a king for ruthless bureaucrats. The Whiskey Rebellion was a tax protest in the United States beginning in 1791, during the presidency of George Washington. Farmers who used their leftover grain and corn in the form of whiskey as a medium of exchange were forced to pay a new tax. Yes – it was a 1791 version of Bitcoin. Many participants were Revolutionary War veterans, who argued that they were fighting for the very same principles of the American Revolution – no taxation without local representation. Of course, the new Federal government maintained the taxes were the legal authority of the taxing powers of Congress that they put in the Constitution – not the people.

It was in July 1794 this first confrontation between those who really had not consented to this federalism erupted into violence with more than 500 armed men attacking the fortified home of tax inspector General John Neville. President Washington responded personally with men he then called “rebels” to justify their massacre. Once the state attaches the label “criminal” it then justifies violence against them regardless of the issue in question.

Washington gathered an army of 13,000 militia provided by the governors of Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and set out to wage war against the American people, most of whom had fought for American Independence. Washington rode at the head of an army personally. The rebels were way outnumbered and it became clear, pay your taxes or you will be dead. The rebels went home before the arrival of the army, and there was no confrontation. Nonetheless, it was at that moment that the evil of the federalist was exposed once and for all.

The union from that moment on was NEVER 100%. As I said, the ratification was 39 out of 70 votes and if human nature is what it is, there were probably votes that were bought with gold. It was this union by force that led to the American Revolution. The slavery issue was simply that it was the labor force in those days. Today they are outlawing fossil fuels which is already altering the course of the economy. Putting the human question of slavery aside and looking at this from an economic perspective, the North was telling the South they had to lockdown their economy and effectively terminate its existence. Naturally, with time, many stayed and were paid wages instead of just free room and board as was the case of serfdom. A serf could not be sold except with the farm whereas a slave could be sold individually.

In modern terms, if you outlaw the means to earn a living over whatever issue, they will rise up against the source of that decree. Hence, history will repeat because human nature remains the same. Consequently, the ONLY solution will be separation for the tyranny of the majority will also result in civil war.

Four Months of Unanswered Protests in Guadeloupe


Armstrong Economivs Blog/Civil Unrest Re-Posted Nov 29, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Citizens of the French Caribbean territory of Guadeloupe have been protesting COVID-19 restrictions for the past four months. In response, authorities have implemented a 6 PM curfew to prevent people from gathering. Reports of protestors shooting at the police, arson, and looting have resulted as anger grows.

The citizens of Guadeloupe have every reason to be hesitant. From 1973 to 1993, the insecticide chlordecone was used on banana plantations, resulting in mass exposure to dangerous toxins. The chemical was used for nearly two decades, and almost all adult residents have traces of the toxin in their bloodstream. The coastal waterways, rivers, and large areas of soil still contain the deadly toxin. Fishing in many areas is prohibited. Cancer, tremors, premature births, slurred speech, short-term memory loss, and a lowered sperm count are among the many dangers chlordecone possesses. Why did it take 20 years to ban chlordecone? Banana lobbyists. What is France doing to correct the problem? Nothing.

The people of Guadeloupe have already suffered at the hands of a corrupt government. The country had an unemployment rate well above 20% before COVID started, and a large part of its GDP is derived from tourism. Forcing vaccines on a population that is currently battling the effects of government incompetence and greed will lead to disaster.
