..”If the public are bound to yield obedience to laws to which they cannot give their approbation, they are slaves to those who make such laws and enforce them.”.. ~Sam Adams
The overwhelming majority of dictates around COVID-19 mitigation are not laws, they are rules created by un-elected bureaucrats. There was no debate; no input from representative government; and no option for the public to weigh-in on the decisions. All unilateral rules are arbitrary, and despite many proclamations to the contrary, they rely upon voluntary compliance. As soon as citizens no longer voluntarily comply, the term of the rules has expired. Liberty must remain inherent. The removal of liberty requires consent.
Senator and Doctor Rand Paul (R-KY) stands to say we are now at a crossroads; at a moment of truth, and he will help lead the effort to withdraw consent if the federal government continues attempting to restrict liberty based around false, misleading and manipulated science. WATCH:
The power of government comes from the people; or as we say in the U.S. “from the consent of the governed.” When people lead, the politicians are forced to follow. Without implied consent the municipal or state government has no power. None.
The power of the local, regional or state authority comes from the expressed consent of the people. As soon as the majority of people deny that consent, those officials and state authoritarians lose all of their power. Yes, it really is that simple.
Those who construct the systems of control need to weaponize fear. Fear of arrest; fear of losing a business; fear of losing liberty or financial security. Local, regional and state officials rely on fear. As soon as We The People are no longer fearful, the control ends.
REMINDER – When I share the message “live your best life”, it is not without purpose. Every moment that we allow the COVID and leftist onslaught to deter us from living our dreams, is a moment those who oppose our nation view as us taking a knee.
Do not allow this effort to succeed.
You might ask yourself how can I, one person, a flea looking into a furnace, retain an optimistic disposition while all around me seems chaotic and mad.
That’s the point; it ‘seems’ chaotic and mad because it has been created to appear that way. There are more of us than them; they just control the systems that allow us to connect, share messages, and recognize the scale of our assembly.
Every second that you live your life with thankfulness for the abundance within it; every moment that we CHOOSE to engage with fellowship; every day that we accept guidance from God – however you define him to be; and every moment we cherish this time to be a beacon of optimism; is a moment that we withstand that barrage and hold the flag in place. It is a genuinely patriotic position not to succumb to the attack.
If you allow yourself to be drawn into crisis and despair, you allow them to win. If your center of normal is based around this overwhelming onslaught, you will eventually concede liberty in favor of peace. Once we stop living in liberty, we no longer have peace.
There is damage behind the masks, the soulless eyes, the lack of smiles and the absence of joy. We must recognize just how much damage is being done; not just to our nation as a whole, but also to every individual within it – personally.
We must shake this mindset. We must withstand this onslaught and rally to the origin of our true national spirit. We must rally to a standard of Americanism and accept this is not that. In essence, we must individually take a stand. Purposefully, deliberately and with forethought, we must engage those around us to get rid of this sense of foreboding.
This approach is how we win the larger battle.
All around us, in every tribe and region, there are people who need you to show them the strength that you have. Strength of spirit. Strength of fellowship that you will not relent from expressing. No matter what noise is shouting from the loudspeakers, we must withstand it; we must make eye contact and remain joyful. We cannot allow despair to be the status quo.
Our nation needs more people like you, right now. Don’t wait… engage life, get optimistic, however you need to do it. Then, let that part of you shine right now… This is how we fight. Hold up that flag; give the starter smile… rally to the standard you create and spread fellowship again. God knows we need it.
Lift your spirits. I cannot tell you how much of a difference it makes right now; not only to this internet community, but to our nation as a whole. Choose to be optimistic. Live your best life right now. Look around, there are people working valiantly with great purpose, support them. Remember, this is the only life we have – so seize this day, and then the next, and then keep going.
We live in the greatest nation on the face of the earth. We are the people of that nation, with boundless opportunities most of the world can only dream of. Our opposition has nothing but false witness, fear and lies. Push on them, they are weak and shallow.
We are Americans…. Those who are working against our interests thrive in an atmosphere of despair and disenfranchisement – do not give it to them. Carry an optimistic spirit, regardless of how challenging. Do not fuel our opposition with the power of fear. Be strong right now; be happy right now; demand action, you are worth it.
Do not give evil elements an inch of space within your heart. Expect and demand accountability. Do not worry about being perceived as an a**hole about it.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” ~Joshua 1:9
Quit listening to those who say “can’t” and “won’t”… If some feel comfortable sitting in their socially distant box and bitching about all things that are not right, or might be not be right…. Or, if they prefer to allow themselves to be overcome with dark imaginings simply because what cannot be done is more comfortable than the effort to oversee what needs to be done…. well, that’s okay.
They can do that. And when they are done doing that, they’ll still be in the same place.
However, you can choose to be positive and take action. Rally your spirits to a standard of worthiness; because you are worth so much more. We are on the right side of history. We are being guided.
As the invasion worsens along our southern border, Joe Biden took decisive action. He went back on vacation.
Joe and his Marxist masters are intentionally destroying America in order to build it back better. How do thousands of Haitian poor achieve that? It’s unlikely they’re doctors, lawyers, or educators. It’s more likely they are criminals, gang members, or people here to collect free stuff.
We are supposed to be a country of laws and we lave immigration laws, but Biden and his operatives refuse to enforce the laws of the Constitution. Instead they operate their spin machine and tell us everything in just fine. Biden did that in Afghanistan and now he’s doing it here by refusing to allow drone coverage of the invasion.
Where will this invasion head next? Certainly, they won’t be camping out on the White House lawn. More likely you’ll see them in your neighborhood. Look for crime to skyrocket.

The evidence keeps coming out that Fauci has done nothing but lie. Now it has emerged that both Wuhan and US scientists were planning to release enhanced airborne coronavirus particles into Chinese bat populations. They were looking to inoculate them against diseases that could jump to humans. This is the guy advising Biden, and Biden has made it clear that under no condition would they EVER fire Fauci. The guy is 80 years old and still working for the government and didn’t bother to retire at 65.
Never has there been an administration that is so corrupt in the White House as this Biden Administration. It is interesting when you try to verify some facts that are against Biden, Reuters puts this pop-up on your screen:
“Backers of Trump’s false fraud claims seek to control next election”
There are no such warnings EVER on what Fauci says or Biden for that matter.
Armstrong Economics Blog/Vaccine Re-Posted Sep 23, 2021 by Martin Armstrong
COMMENT: Hi Marty,
I read your blog every morning.
Here’s some interesting math for you.
Number needed to vaccinate is 142 for Pfizer. (Moderna is 88 but I’ll use Pfizer for the demonstration).
So with Pfizer you need to vaccinate 117 people to prevent one CASE of covid. The current survival rate of covid is 99.86%, so approximately 1 death per thousand cases. So the NNV to prevent one covid DEATH is 117,000.
In the first 6 months of 2021, 134 million people were fully vaccinated in the US. VAERS listed 10,335 vaccine related deaths by that point, about 56 per day. Vaers has been proven to be underreported but let’s use it as a very rough conservative estimate.
So the 134 million / 10355 = 12,940 … one death per 12940 covid vaccinations.
So if you vaccinate 117,000 people to save one covid death, 117,000/12940 = 9.04 people will have died from the vaccine.
This is likely on the low end and also doesn’t include all the non-mortality vaccine side effects. It also doesn’t include the non mortality effects of covid either.
Interesting numbers though regardless.
REPLY: Very interesting analysis. There was a family friend who was in good health at 76. He was vaccinated, and suddenly within a month, he ended up in the hospital. One organ after the other was failing then came back. He finally recovered, but nobody could explain what the hell was going on. The doctors simply said they had never seen this before. It was like a mouse running around inside him, moving from one organ to the next. This is one giant experiment, and now Pfizer is claiming it is safe for 5-year-olds. But they are exempt from all liability and are making more money than ever. But we should trust them?
The FDA has been compromised. They are taking money from Bill Gates, who then, in turn, makes money from his ownership of Pfizer. If anyone did this in any other stock, the SEC would be dragging them in court. They took Elon Musk to court for simply saying he would take the company private. Bill Gates has so many conflicts of interest that we can NO LONGER trust the Biden Administration, the FDA, CDC, or Fauci.
Where is the SEC when they could actually do something for once besides protecting the bankers?

COMMENT #1: Hi Marty,
It does not feel like we are winning at all here in Canada. In Ontario, as of today, the unvaxxed cannot go to a restaurant, concerts, gym or any indoor event deemed by the ‘authorities’ as not essential. Soon enough, we will not be able to buy a loaf of bread without the vax passport.
What surprises me is that small business associations or civil rights groups are not filing lawsuits to stop this. They just play along and say nothing we can do, sorry.
When I ask retired people why they took the jab, they mostly say: so they can travel (non of them have done any traveling anyway, since Trudeau locked the borders Iron Curtain style). When I ask the young why: they say to get it done with, so they can go about their lives. Nobody takes it for health reasons nor thinks about health risks. I know a man in his twenties, who was in the hospital for a week with Myocarditis after taking the vax. A medical doctor told me they treat it with Tylenol, so it’s ok, it’s all safe, take the vax.
We are being imprisoned one illegal mandate at a time. Politicians are acting as if the Charter of Rights was null and void and any rights we have are irrelevant. No one here in Canada is willing to stand up to this and openly say basta! There is some fussing, but it looks more like controlled opposition, to make us move swiftly along to the next stage than anything we could call ‘winnable’.
‘Two weeks to flatten the curve’
REPLY #1: I fully understand what you are saying. But even those vaccinated who were lied to that this is one time like a polio shot as a kid and took the shot to be able to travel or for other non-health reason, these people complied but were not deathly afraid of COVID. They are not fully indoctrinated and they will revolt when they realize that these people will demand regular COVID shots forever and they are not interested in allowing the total freedom to travel.
COMMENT #2: Hi, Living in Sweden it’s just insane watching the COVID responses around the world.
The hospitals here aren’t even allowed to ask nurses or doctors if they are vaccinated, the same goes for all government employees. It’s funny that old socialist Sweden is now the land of the free.
REPLY #2: I fully agree. The majority of the world is in chaos all because the politicians have bought into the Schwab agenda 2030 and see more power in their hands and ending democratic election. It truly is instance but they know the vast majority of people are just sheep.
COMMENT #3: I like your optimistic tone this morning, but Europe is lost and Canada just re-elected Trudeau. Germany will elect socialists and ecologists, which is even worse than Merkel. Macron will be next to be reelected, the entire system is bent to make it happen. They are spending like crazy to bribe the people, people are hypnotized by the media’s bullshit, kids up to 30y old by the Marxist, woke and climate alarmists posts on social media, with no understanding about the difference between militant opinions and real facts. There is no way the majority of people will open their eyes by spring next year to throw Macron out. Not looking good at all for the next 5 years IMHO. So you’re right on one point, it will be violent, but we will suffer greatly until 2027 with taxes, vaccines and lockdowns, and all the unexpected consequences.
REPLY #3: Their objective to rule the world is absurd, the dreams and fantasies of academics. They will not come into play. Their window for this takeover of the world closes by the end of 2022. We have panic cycles in politics around the world in 2022-2023. This has never before shown up on our model since the 1930s. There was a previous period of Revolutions of 1917–1923 which was marked by revolutions in Russia and Germany. The larger German Revolution ended monarchy there but there was also and its offspring, like the Bavarian Soviet Republic, the Hungarian Revolution, and the Biennio Rosso revolution in Italy. There were many other smaller uprisings, protests, and strikes that were a result of losses economically from World War I in Europe. Before that, the Panic Cycles appear in 1844-1849, which marked the first communist revolution of 1848 in Europe.
The world is NOT ready to surrender all its rights. When the people begin to way up and understand that the COVID passports are PERMANENT, then you will see the contagion of a broader uprising. This is why the EU is now pushing for an EU army where it will send in Italians to crush Germans etc. They will use the natural division among Europeans against them to retain power. The censorship and cancel culture is the same as the Nazi Book Burnings. Anything the speaks against the propaganda of the state must be canceled.
Pope Francis is now denying access to the Vatican without a COVID pass? What happened to the teachings of Christ and defending the condemned? Let he without sin cast the first stone?
They are already putting out plans for COVID response and the Pandemic into 2025-2028. Hello, it is time to wake up and smell the coffee because they outlaw that as well.
Armstrong Economics Blog/Tyranny Re-Posted Sep 23, 2021 by Martin Armstrong
If you listen to this clip, there is an important revelation here.
PROTESTOR: “Why are you doing this? Policies are killing people.”
POLICE: “I agree with you, I’m just doing my job…I’m just as over this lockdown as you are mate, but this is my job. I’m not skilled to do anything else.”
The significance here is that the cop is saying his wife is out of a job. At some point, even the police will not lay down their lives at the end of the day. However, here he is saying he does not support this tyranny but it’s the only pay he is getting. This sort of tyranny will go only so far. The main ruthless element that will drive police to kill people is that they are told you are evil. As long as you are POSSIBLY guilty of anything, you will deserve death, despite the fact that the immediate event may more justify the punishment.
This sort of attitude is missing in most of these events. If the police are not CONVINCED of your guilt, then they will flip at the end of the day.
From the attached report on climate change for August 2021 Data we have the two charts showing how much the global temperature has actually gone up since we started to measure CO2 in the atmosphere in 1958? To show this graphically Chart 8a was constructed by plotting CO2 as a percent increase from when it was first measured in 1958, the Black plot, the scale is on the left and it shows CO2 going up by about 32.0% from 1958 to July of 2021. That is a very large change as anyone would have to agree. Now how about temperature, well when we look at the percentage change in temperature also from 1958, using Kelvin (which does measure the change in heat), we find that the changes in global temperature (heat) is almost un-measurable at only .4%. As you see the increase in energy, heat, is not visually observably in this chart hence the need for another Chart 8 to show the minuscule increase in thermal energy shown by NASA in relationship to the change in CO2 Shown in the next Chart using a different scale.
The next chart is Chart 8 which is the same as Chart 8a except for the scales. The scale on the right side had to be expanded 10 times (the range is 50 % on the left and 5% on the right) to be able to see the plot in the same chart in any detail. The red plot, starting in 1958, shows that the thermal energy in the earth’s atmosphere increased by .40%; while CO2 has increased by 32.0% which is 80 times that of the increase in temperature. So is there really a meaningful link between them that would give as a major problem?
Based to these trends, determined by excel not me, in 2028 CO2 will be 428 ppm and temperatures will be a bit over 15.0o Celsius and in 2038 CO2 will be 458 ppm and temperatures will be 15.6O Celsius. This is what the data shows no matter what the reasons are, so I have no idea how the IPCC gets to predict that the world will end in ten or even twenty years.
Carbon Dioxide CO2 is not making “ANY” dangerous changes to the global temperature!
The numbers tell us — there isn’t any problem!
The full 40 page report explains how these charts were developed and why using NASA and NOAA data that are used without change to prove that The New Green Deal is not required and any attempt to complete that plan will be a worldwide disaster.

Advocating for the sanctioned hunting of black people and shooting them with blow-darts may not result in more vaccine support from people of color….
[WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sept. 22, 2021] Project Veritas released the second video of its COVID vaccine investigative series today exposing U.S. Food and Drug Administration [FDA] economist, Taylor Lee, who was recorded calling for forced COVID vaccinations and a registry for all unvaccinated Americans.

Chickens coming home to roost? The state of Queensland, Australia, (QLD) is located in the northeastern portion of the nation above the state of New South Wales. The biggest metropolitan areas are Brisbane to the south and Cairns to the north. Like many states, and in alignment with the national plan, Queensland is mandating a vaccination upon citizens if they want to escape the rules and regulations of lockdowns and COVID compliance dictates.
Despite some initial signs of moderation, recently Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has fallen into line with the national government plan and has announced she is fully prepared to be just as big a totalitarian dictator as her neighboring Premiers to the west and south. As a consequence, Premier Palaszczuk has decreed that all Queensland police units must be vaccinated within two weeks or they will lose their jobs. WATCH:
The citizens of Queensland will take the mRNA immunity modification serum, aka “the jab”, or they will be discarded from society. There is a relatively small faction of reasonable police who might have a problem with that. However, if you look at the upcoming new classes of junior officers (pictured below), you’ll get an idea of where their mindset is.

“Take the jab boy,” he says… and then comes the blacklash. The forced mRNA gene therapy, aka “vaccine” mandate, is causing a significant drop in support for Joe Biden amid black populations. However, the White House is likely to deflect the polling outcomes by saying those are not really black people, because if you don’t support Biden the Corn Pop Slayer, well, you ain’t black.
(Yahoo) – President Biden’s net approval rating among unvaccinated black voters has dropped a stunning 17 points since he announced plans to implement a federal vaccine mandate for companies with more than 100 people, according to a new Morning Consult poll.
Biden’s favor among black voters dropped substantially between an initial poll conducted between September 6 and 8 — just before Biden’s mandate announcement on September 9 — and a second poll taken between September 18 to 20 of more than 1,000 black voters.
The second poll revealed that 71 percent of black voters approve of Biden’s performance, down 5 points since the mandate. The share who disapprove rose 7 points to 24 percent. Thirty-seven percent said they strongly approve of his performance, while 14 percent said they strongly disapprove. The president’s net approval rating — a measure of the share who approve his job performance minus the share who disapprove — has dropped 12 percent among black voters. (read more)
