Can Trump End the Ukraine War in 24 hrs?

Armstrong Economics Blog/Ukraine Re-Posted Jun 4, 2023 by Martin Armstrong

This war could be ended in 24 hours.

(1) stop all money going to Ukraine,

(2) threaten to freeze all their assets,

(3) threaten to remove Ukraine from SWIFT,

(4) Order Ukraine to honor the Minsk Agreement.

To Russia:

(1) Lift all sanctions

(2) No NATO training or weapons for Ukraine

(3) Ukraine will not be part of NATO

(4) Agree to pay for the damage to Nord Stream

Ukraine is an untrustworthy government. Their end goal has ALWAYS been to destroy Russia. They were the first state to pull out of Russia and pitched the destruction of the Soviet Union to other member states. Ukraine was NEVER its own country. It became a country and achieved its sovereignty but that was never good enough. They had to start the civil war against the Donbas. If you want this war to continue, then grab a gun and go fight for this most corrupt head of state probably in the entire world.

The facts are clear. Ukraine launched what it called Special Operations and began the civil war attacking the Russian civilians in the Donbas calling them terrorists because they wanted separation from Ukraine which has outlawed their language and even outlawed their religion ordering all churches to be subservient to their propped-up Patriarch – not the traditional one in Moscow. This is sort of the French seizing the Vatican and moving it to Avignon. This was their response to the Minsk Agreement where Ukraine was to separate and adopt a change to their Constitution. Ukraine has discriminated against anyone who is not Ukrainian and that included Hungarian and Polish living in Ukraine. That has been their legacy from Nazi Germany.

The Ukrainians are fighting for the territory that was never theirs. They want Russia out, along with all other minorities they hate and do not trust. Make no mistake about it, if Russia loses, the Ukrainians will massacre all Russians in the Donbas territory. The West ignores the fact that the Ukrainians carried out a massacre of ethnic Russians who lived in Odessa as soon as their 2014 Revolution and that is what started this entire civil war that the Western Press will not address.

The 2014 Massacre of Russian-speaking Ukrainians in Odessa where they killed them grabbing them on the streets was a Neo-Nazi event. That was the turning point. It revealed that the Donbas had to separate for the Neo-Nazis wanted their death, not their submission. That began the civil war. They set fire to the building and burned all the Russian-speaking Ukrainians alive. For the first time in history, an organized massacre of civilians was carried out and even filmed by numerous people. This has been documented in extraordinary detail and the Neo-Nazis did not even fear of any negative consequences in world opinion.

If we do NOT abandon Ukraine and force them to live peacefully, they will engulf the entire world. They will use the F16s and attack the Russian Fleet and be prepared to send your children or yourself to go fight for the liar and greedy corrupt politician – Zelensky. We should die for this corruption? Honor the Minsk Agreement and it is over in 24 hours.

Oh yes. Throw in a pair of diamond-studded high heels. That may clinch the deal.

Why the United States Will Fall

Armstrong Economics Blog/Civil Unrest Re-Posted Jun 4, 2023 by Martin Armstrong

This is why the United States is dead. It can no longer stand united and, like Ukraine, we too will simply have to split. There should be a property swap where Democrats leave the Red States and go to the Blue States and vice versa. This is how empires always die. They collapse from an internal division that eats away at them from within like cancer. Hayley Williams has only shown how she is brainwashed into thinking that abortion is a woman’s right when it was a Gates-Rockafeller ploy to further eugenics and reduce the population of minorities.

Justice Ginsberg was a woman’s activist. She explained that Roe v Wade was not about women’s rights. It was about eugenics. So they get women to agree to war and whatever because all they can focus on is abortion which was a lie, to begin with.

You cannot allow one side to force their beliefs upon the other.  Civilization can ONLY function when everyone benefits. As Lincoln said, united we stand, divided we fall.

Big Data Poll – President Trump Crushing Governor DeSantis by 20 Points in Florida After Home State Campaign Launch

Posted originally on the CTH on June 3, 2023 | Sundance 

Now you know exactly why Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had to launch without any public appearances in his home state, and run away from the state of Florida immediately thereafter.   This doesn’t take any commentary to understand.

President Trump is beating Ron DeSantis in the state that knows the Florida Governor best.

Trump 52.5%, DeSantis 32.6%.

This should be embarrassing for Ron and Jill ‘Casey’ DeSantis, but their hubris will just ignore it.


Floridians see they were conned by Ron Desantis in 2022.  The backlash is everywhere.

Info Wars and Billionaire Motives – Elon Musk Uses Team DeSantis Twitter “Community Notes” to Undermine Trump

Posted originally on the CTH on June 3, 2023 | Sundance 

People often ask me why I seem to highlight datapoints and background events that do not trend to the media-driven narrative priority of the moment.  The answer is simple; everything is connected to the next thing that happens. If you do not outline the originating point, the accurate reference is missed when needed.

This approach is why I have focused significant research on Elon Musk’s financial situation with Twitter {GO DEEP}.

The issue of Twitter’s financial status speaks to the motives of Musk that later surface – like his relationship with Fox News billionaire Rupert Murdoch.  Once you see the connections, suddenly everything makes sense.  Musk and Murdoch have intersecting interests.

Elon Musk is in desperate need of revenue for his social media platform Twitter.  By his own admissions, Twitter is currently in the red on an annual basis between $1.5 to $4.0 billion; that may go as high as $5 billion, depending on what happens over the next six months.  Currently losing $100 million/mo, Musk is limited on how much he can pull from his other companies to support Twitter, and with $1.5 billion in debt service alone on the $12.5 billion borrowed for the Twitter purchase, Musk needs an income stream quickly.

Advertising revenue has dropped 50%. This is the motive for Musk to hire Linda Jaccarino, the former head of NBC Universal advertising, to bring urgently needed revenue to a platform currently considered too extreme for the DEI-minded corporate advertising executives.  Musk is also captive to contracts with Bezos’ Amazon (AWS) and Google cloud services for platform data processing support.  Those very expensive contracts – $1 billion and $2 billion respectively – do not expire until 2025.

In short, Musk needs revenue. For Twitter, this reality drives his decision-making.  Enter, Rupert Murdoch.

Billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch owns Fox News, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post and Harper Collins book publishing.

Murdoch wants to control the outcome of the 2024 election and strongly supports Ron DeSantis on behalf of his Wall Street allies.

Murdoch financed DeSantis through the Harper Collins book deal, and Murdoch has turned his media outlets into advanced PR for the DeSantis campaign.

The Murdoch media approach includes lengthy and friendly broadcast Fox News appearances, interviews and pundit advocacy, while the print side spins favorable stories.  The Wall Street Journal and New York Post are doing the same.  It is a full-court press to support DeSantis on behalf of the interests of Murdoch et al.  Keep in mind, the RNC has given Fox News control over the kickoff GOP debate.

♦The Alliance of Interests – Elon Musk needs money; this is not in question.  Rupert Murdoch, supporting Ron DeSantis, wants control of the 2024 election outcome; also, this is not in question.  These two facets form the baseline of a common interest.

Elon Musk launches the DeSantis campaign via Twitter Spaces – not accidental.  Musk then uses his platform control mechanisms to amplify DeSantis and counteract the strong and visible platform support for Donald Trump.   What outlet pushes the narrative that flows from the operation?  Rupert Murdoch.

NEW YORK POST – Donald Trump’s 2024 election campaign’s claims are already being hit with Twitter’s new “community notes,” which fact-check or offer context to dubious posts.  In May alone, Team Trump and their surrogates were slapped with community notes on at least seven occasions — and were often cited for posting flat-out lies.  (read more)

Christina Pushaw is a registered foreign agent working for the DeSantis campaign.

Ms. Pushaw went from working in Ukraine, for Volodymyr Zelenskyy, directly to working in Florida as Ron DeSantis’ press secretary.

Pushaw was the person who gathered the “influence operation” over the past two years on behalf of the DeSantis 2024 operation.  That operation was visible in 2022, denied in 2022, then finally admitted two weeks ago.

Now working for the DeSantis campaign, Christina Pushaw – a fellow traveler from the George Soros network and schooling – has organized the same type of influence campaign used in Ukraine to support Zelenskyy, only this time she is exploiting social media and specifically Twitter.  This is why she spent so much time recruiting ‘influencers’ in 2021 and 2022, and even tried to deny she was doing it.

Put it all together, and what you see is Rupert Murdoch as the financial lifeline (with a common interest) for Elon Musk who desperately needs money that does not and cannot come from his other businesses (Tesla, SpaceX etc.).

Murdoch, supporting DeSantis, also had a problem he was willing to remove on his Fox News network.   Musk needs content providers as he needs a way to increase his viewership and money.  Murdoch axes Tucker Carlson.  Where does Carlson surface?  Twitter!  [NOTE: Except now I think Carlson has caught on to the play.]

The Twitter platform has now evolved to become the influence operation for Team DeSantis- with groundwork seeded by Pushaw.  The throttling of pro-MAGA, and boosting of pro-Meatball, is now becoming increasingly obvious.

The Twitter ‘Community Notes’ issue is simply a very visible reflection of what people have been talking about for several weeks.  This is why it was loaded into the media cannon on Rupert’s platform, The New York Post.   Everything is connected to everything else, and once you see the strings on these marionettes you can never return to that moment in the performance when you did not see them.

Musk needs revenue; this is not in question.  The question is now, how urgently?

The alliance between Rupert Murdoch and Elon Musk isn’t a conspiracy or wild imagining, it is simply the logical outcome to a common interest.  Elon needs money, Rupert wants DeSantis and control of the 2024 election.  Everything else is a matter of mutually aligned support.

♦Last point – My long-standing suspicion is, the people who organized Ron DeSantis appear to have convinced the governor to run in 2024 by telling him that Lawfare was going to take down Donald Trump.  That’s why his handlers pushed the Florida governor into a bunker after the August 2022 FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, and then relaunched the national campaign immediately thereafter. {Go Deep}

Ron DeSantis appears to have enrolled in their agenda under the assumption that he would NOT have to actually run against Donald Trump, but would instead be able to just pick up the MAGA base after Trump was removed from the 2024 campaign by Lawfare operations.  Pushed to accept this prediction by a wife desperate for her own sense of power, DeSantis appears to have believed the DC connected team that made these assurances.  Now both Ron, and to a lesser extent, Jill, are stuck hoping they are not wrong.

Rolling the dice on a bet against Donald Trump is never a good career strategy.  Factually, that approach has been proven bad-bad, ju-ju for anyone who tried.

Keep in mind, all the never-Trumpers and gleeful influencers who saw the dollar signs and joined on to DeSantis bandwagon, are hitched to the same outcome.

They are in a mutually assured destruction (MAD) situation.  If the Deep State and Lawfare doesn’t take out Donald Trump, their DeSantis operation goes over the edge into the bottomless pit of irrelevancy.

Thus, the DeSantis campaign, and everyone attached to the support thereof, will become increasingly desperate as Lawfare starts failing.

DOJ Closes Pence Classified Doc Investigation – Mary McCord Weighs in on Anticipated DOJ Action in Trump Case

Posted originally on the CTH on June 2, 2023 | Sundance 

This is a little long and very boring, but people keep asking.. lol

If there is one corrupt DC player who has escaped scrutiny for her corrupt endeavors, it would be Mary McCord.  More than any other Lawfare operative within Main Justice, Mary McCord sits at the center of every table in the manufacturing of cases against Donald Trump. {GO DEEP}

Mary McCord was acting head of the DOJ-NSD when the Carter Page FISA application was submitted.  After leaving the DOJ-NSD, McCord became head of the Nadler/Schiff impeachment staff.  McCord was the organizer of the Vindman CIA whistleblower during impeachment effort #1, and it was Mary McCord’s former NSD lawyer turned Intelligence Community Inspector General, Michael Atkinson, who changed the rules for whistleblowing in the CIA -a request made by McCord- to permit anonymity.

Mary McCord was the person who went to the White House with Deputy AG Sally Yates to carry out the DOJ justice scheme to remove National Security Advisor Mike Flynn.  McCord was also selected by a seriously sketchy FISA Judge Boasberg to be the amicus for the court clouding the issues with the FBI and fraudulent information to the FISC. Mary McCord also worked with the congressional team on the second impeachment effort, and it was Mary McCord who went to work for J6 Committee Chairman Bennie Thomspon to frame the J6 case and narrative.

To say that Mary McCord is deeply and professionally attached to the lawfare effort to target Donald Trump would be an understatement.

Today, as a Lawfare contributor to MSNBC, and while discussing the dropping of the investigation in the Pence classified documents case, McCord said she can see no way the DOJ doesn’t indict Donald Trump for the Mar-a-Lago classified documents.  “I don’t think it’s realistic to think that the DOJ would avoid, from here on out through the 2024 election, taking any kind of legal action against Trump or those in his inner circle,” says McCord.  WATCH: 


While I do not necessarily disagree with McCord on the desire of the DOJ to indict Trump, I completely disagree on any framework of validity for it.  In fact, the reality of President Trump declassifying the Mar-a-Lago documents before he left the White House, trumps any possible criminal activity.   Of course, that doesn’t stop a purely politically motivated effort.

Keep in mind, the classification of a document is whatever the Intelligence Community says it is.  This includes personal correspondence letters from Kim Jong-un to President Trump that a politically weaponized IC claims were Top Secret Compartmented Intelligence (TSCI) documents, even though they were something akin to thank you notes.

(Via Politico) The Justice Department has ended an investigation into former Vice President Mike Pence’s handling of classified documents discovered in his home, according to a letter sent by DOJ to Pence’s attorney and obtained Friday by POLITICO.

The letter, dated June 1, arrived just days before Pence is expected to launch a presidential bid. The Justice Department confirmed the authenticity of the letter but declined additional comment.

The announcement closes a chapter that began in January when Pence tapped an attorney to search his Indiana home for potential classified documents — a decision he made after a similar discovery was made at President Joe Biden’s private residence in Delaware.

Pence’s former vice presidential counsel, Greg Jacob, informed the National Archives that the search uncovered about a dozen records with classified markings in his residence. The Justice Department quickly intervened to take possession of the records, and the FBI would later search Pence’s residence for additional materials.

Immediately after the discovery of the records, Pence quickly indicated his willingness to cooperate with authorities and suggested he was unaware of the presence of the classified documents in his home. (read more)

The Jack Smith Special Counsel has been coming up empty on its special counsel review of Donald Trump for direct insurrection on January 6th, 2021, and has fallen back to a position of conspiracy to commit insurrection grounded upon President Trump asking various states to check for voter fraud.

Meanwhile the latest developments of the reported conversation President Trump had about a classified document he saw from Joint Chiefs Mark Milley has sent team Smith on another snipe hunt.   These quotes from the CNN dramatic article about it are a little funny.

[…] Meadows’ autobiography includes an account of what appears to be the same meeting, during which Trump “recalls a four-page report typed up by (Trump’s former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) Mark Milley himself. It contained the general’s own plan to attack Iran, deploying massive numbers of troops, something he urged President Trump to do more than once during his presidency.”

The document Trump references was not produced by Milley, CNN was told. (link)

Remember when I was writing about Mike Pompeo and Mark Milley traveling to Mar-a-Lago?

Joint Chief Chairman Milley, and SoS Mike Pompeo traveled to Mar-a-Lago in December 2019, where they informed President Trump of military strikes in Syria and Iraq *after* they took place. [Background Here] [Background Here]. President Trump made Esper, Milley and Pompeo hold a press conference without Trump supporting them; then President Trump remained silent on the issue for days.

THAT’s the picture below. 👇

[Background Here] ~ [Background Here]

It seemed like CTH was alone in noticing the issues with the Pentagon and suspicions of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley. However, a few days after the Mar-a-Lago incident, Col Douglas Macgregor expressed his own suspicions about the U.S. military attack in Iraq and Syria that paralleled our gut reaction. Macgregor stated he believed President Trump was being intentionally and “skillfully misinformed”.

I can almost guarantee you that sometime in the Trump administration, Milley drew up some kind of plan to bomb, attack or invade Iran, and President Trump dismissed him quickly for his nonsense.  I can also assure you there is an executive office memo of that ridiculous effort by Milley that was personal to the office of the president as a ‘notation of issue’ with Milley.

President Trump talking about that issue with Milley, or the event that surrounds it, is a nothingburger.   Of course, you would have to know the deep background of the Milley issues to know the greatest likelihood of any personnel memorandum held by the executive.

During the Trump administration, the media intentionally ignored the bad actors like Milley and Pompeo because they provided fuel for the accusations against the administration.  As the DOJ attempts to construct nonsense now, those prior moments do not serve as reference points, but I have them in our archives.  Go Figure!


Life is funny.   Remember when we helped save George Zimmerman from the nonsense?  And then remember when we helped save Darren Wilson from the nonsense?  Who would have guessed that a rag-tag bunch of misfits in some obscure corner of the internet would be in the best position to serve as the key defense library for the President of the United States of America.  Life is funny; that’s why I keep saying, go enjoy it!
