Florida & DeSantis

Armstrong Economics Blog/Human Rights Re-Posted Jan 30, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

 I was invited to the Common Sense Society meeting in Palm Beach. There were quite a few of our clients there so it was no secret that I was in attendance. I was there to meet some key people who flew in as I did. I thought it was important to meet DeSantis eye to eye. My assessment was that I found him to be a genuine guy who actually knew the facts behind what he was saying without cue cards and teleprompters. That was also something I would look for when meeting politicians and heads of state. Could I actually have a conversation with them beyond the handshakes and smiles?

This is what I am talking about. Biden is the classic politician. They will say whatever to try to please with no genuine intention of doing anything. Here is Biden responding to Let’s Go Brandon saying “I agree” which many people have wondered if he is mentally in trouble. But most of the time they will simply say they agree and never bother to listen.

Remember back in 2016 when it came out that Hillary told the bankers not to worry that she bashes them in public, but she has a different position in private? That is what I mean. Politicians lie for they really do not know how to tell the truth. It is all about getting elected and they have their own hidden agenda.

I moved to Florida about 6 years ago. My lawyer told me that if I died in New Jersey, to tell my family to drag my body across the river before they told anyone. If I held a conference in Hong Kong, I had to pay New Jersey 10% for the privilege of being harassed with parking tickets in a private parking lot because they know you cannot take the day off to go fight an illegal ticket so you pay. Driving to work in New Jersey, they would set up roadblocks and it was papers, please. If you did have all your paperwork, get in that line for the ticket. Marlton New Jersey was acting unconstitutional but it would cost you millions to take it to the Supreme Court so again – you just pay.

The happiest day of my life was getting out of New Jersey and moving to Florida. The computer correctly forecast that Florida would be the best state and that was before DeSantis was elected.

This is the speech DeSantis delivered over the Weekend. His facts are correct. Florida has about 3 million more people than New York now and without income taxes, the state budget is under the $100 mark compared to New York which is at the $240 level. But, Florida has a $17 billion surplus. Our schools are rated #3 in the country and parents have a choice which forces schools to compete. Yet this battle to brainwash children with Critical Race Theory is highly dangerous and it is succeeding in dividing America. The very purpose of CIVILIZATION is that we all come together. When you begin dividing people and instilling hatred, then there is no longer any purpose to the civilization. My model has been warning that we will divide and that the United States will;l no longer exist as we know it. The left thinks they can seize control and subordinate everyone else to march to their demands. That is the recipe for civil war. If we all do not respect each other and live together in harmony, then there is no longer any purpose to the United States for it is a mockery of Equal Protection to subordinate one group for the benefit of another.

Speaking in my own self-interest, I hope DeSantis just stays here in Florida and rejects the call for him to run in 2024 for President. Washington is far too corrupt to accept reform magnanimously. Pelosi has turned away from retiring because Biden’s polls have collapsed and the Democrats have pleaded with her to stay with Schumer to provide the face to the Democrats in contrast to Biden.

Biden Violates His Own Agenda & the Constitution

Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Jan 31, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Biden is saying he will only appoint a Black Woman to the Supreme Court if actually violating the law and all judges could file a class-action lawsuit for violating their Civil Rights. Congress has enacted a variety of laws prohibiting employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, or genetic information in the federal sector. The definition will be found in 42 U.S. Code § 2000e. In fact, since Biden is openly discriminating against everyone else other than a black woman, he could be criminally charged under Title 18, U.S.C., §241/242 – Conspiracy Against Rights. This statute makes it unlawful for two or more persons to conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person of any state, territory, or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the United States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same). Biden legally could face 10 years in prison, but the DOJ would never do such a thing.

Trump nominated Ada E. Brown, a Black Woman, for the Supreme Court and 13 Democrats blocked her nominations. Suddenly, diversity didn’t mean anything. Simply that she was nominated by Trump was all that mattered. Justice Barret, who the Democrats hated, refused to block a plan by Indiana University to require students and employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19. It does NOT matter who appoints justices. They do NOT always vote on party lines as is the case on Capitol Hill.

In this WOKE environment, the question then arises, does that mean that Attorney General Merrick B. Garland can declare that he identifies as a Black Woman and that means he should be qualified for the Job?

Of course, there are rumors that Biden can nominate Harris and get her off the disastrous ticket that he thinks he will round in 2024. According to the 25th Amendment of the Constitution, if the vice president for whatever reason vacates the office, the president has the power to appoint a new vice president subject to the approval of both houses of Congress. If both the president and the vice president die, the speaker of the house becomes president, according to the Presidential Succession Act of 1947. He could appoint Willard Mitt Romney as Vice President who is Republican who votes Democrat and hated Trump. Romey would jump at the chance since he failed in his bid against Obama. Then Biden can pretend he has a balanced ticket and Romey can accelerate the downfall of the United States alongside Kerry since he also thinks humans are causing all the climate issues.

Let me make one thing very clear. Biden is engaging in racial profiling. I have pointed out that this is all nonsense. Chief Justice Roberts was appointed by Republicans but he is the one that upheld Obamacare. Black judges are most likely to be harder on blacks than white judges. The reason, is they know they cannot be accused of being racist and they will more often look upon such black defendants as giving all blacks a bad image. The white judge will keep in mind the race card and will fear being called racist. This is standard in New York City federal court.

The Interview That Killed the Anti-Work Movement

Armstrong Economics Blog/Basic Concepts Re-Posted Jan 31, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

The massive anti-work movement sparked by the popular subreddit imploded after Jesse Watters from Fox News interviewed a moderator named Doreen. Doreen destroyed the movement without any interrogation from Watters, as they simply did not prepare for the interview. Recorded from a stereotypical basement, Doreen stated during the interview that “laziness is a virtue.” The 30-year-old dog walker spends around 20-25 hours a week working, but would like fewer work hours.

The subreddit is in a panic. People are unsubscribing, moderators are leaving, and Doreen’s dark past of sexual assault has surfaced. One user posted a guide to understanding basic public relations and how to talk during an interview. Worker’s reform is one topic. For example, Amazon employees should not be forced to use water bottles for bathroom breaks and people should not need three jobs to survive. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect. However, the illusion that society could function if no one worked has been dismantled.

The wealth of a nation is the total productivity of its people. If I have gold and want you to fix my house, I give you the gold for your labor. Thus, your wealth is your labor, and the gold is merely a medium of exchange. So it does not matter whatever the medium of exchange might be. You will give your labor, provided you know someone else will accept the medium of exchange from you in purchasing something else. It is the labor of the people and their productive capacity that creates the wealth of any nation.

Karl Marx viewed labor as exploitive and a constant class struggle that was as black and white as rich v poor. Marx never credited innovators who, in turn, create jobs with their ideas. Adam Smith, on the other hand, saw that eliminating innovation by redistributing confiscated wealth would ruin the economy. Smith’s concept of the invisible hand sees everyone as acting in their own self-interest, which proves beneficial for the free market economy at large.

The GOP May Impeach Biden If They Win Back the House

Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Jan 31, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

New York Republican lawmakers Nicole Malliotakis and Claudia Tenney are calling for Biden’s impeachment after it was revealed he has been illegally smuggling migrants into the country. Malliotakis noted that aiding and abetting illegal immigration violates the law. “And you have it coming from the president of the United States. It is completely unacceptable. The Supreme Court ruled that he had to reinstate Remain in Mexico and he’s clearly not done that,” Malliotakis said.

“His primary obligation as the commander in chief and the president of the United States is to enforce our laws, live up to his oath, enforce our border security. And also tell the truth to the American people,” Malliotakis stated. Since Biden is likely funneling aliens into our country for political gain, then the charges should be more significant.

Ted Cruz has previously stated that the GOP would push to remove Biden from office if they win back the house during the midterm elections. “Probably the most compelling is the utter lawlessness of President Biden’s refusal to enforce the border. His decision to just defy federal immigration laws and allow 2 million people to come here unimpeded in direct contravention of his obligation under Article 2 of the Constitution to take care that the laws be faithfully executed,” Cruz said. “That is probably the strongest grounds right now for impeachment, but there may be others.”

Everyone involved in this operation should be removed from their office and barred from holding any office in the future. There is no conspiracy. Images and video footage of illegal migrants being flown in under the veil of night are spreading around the internet like wildfire. The Biden Administration has failed to protect our borders and is attempting to rig the next election through their illegal activities.

Schwab – The Madman of Davos Changing the World

Armstrong Economics Blog/Corruption Re-Posted Jan 31, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

There is a very serious problem in the social sciences where some academics think they can control the economy following the path first blazed by Karl Marx. Previously, the accepted normal was Laissez-faire, meaning that the economy was far too complex for governments to interfere. This emerged from Adam Smith and his “Wealth of Nations.”

The academics needed to raise their stature and to present themselves as problem solvers at first in a crisis, but then they crossed the line into believing that they could restructure the world economy. That was set in motion by Karl Marx.

Before Keynes died, he admitted that his theories were wrong. He had spent his life arguing against Smith and that economists could manage the world to bring an end to recession and depressions. This new theory in economics promised that the government could create perpetual prosperity.

Then came the 1974 Crash and the emergence of stagflation, which was supposed to be impossible. Volcker delivered his “Rediscovery of the Business Cycle” and how it had defeated Keynesian Economics – the “New Economics,” and Schwab never listened.

The previous Fed Chairman Arthur Burns, who was there when Bretton Woods collapsed, also noted that the business cycle had always won. Academics were wrong, and they could not create a land of utopia.

Schwab has continued the Marxist belief that academics are capable of redesigning the world economy. Schwab believes, like Marx, that he has the mental capacity to see the world and reshape it. He has convinced world leaders to listen to his nonsense, which has proven wrong every time it has been attempted.

Schwab has convinced world leaders that this time it will work, and they will gain more power. Do any one of these people, incompetent to rule the world, know anything about how the economy works? Communism and socialism have always failed because we are human, and we are not worker bees to be directed from some central hive.

Nixon’s famous 1959 Kitchen debate made it clear that under Marxism, no innovation ever took place that increased the standard of living for the people. All innovation was directed at creating more power for the state and its nuclear weapons. Only when people are free to discover, think and explore does the standard of living ever increase.

Today, Big Tech is aligned with the dark forces out to change the world and eliminate our freedom to everything. They cancel our speech to prevent any narrative that dares to challenge what these people believe because they have been promised to rise to the top of society as long as they help destroy the very country where freedom allowed them to climb the ladder to the top. Has money just corrupted their thinking? Or have they just been lured by Schwab’s dream of being the new elite in the changing new world?


Armstrong Economics Blog/America’s Economic History Re-Posted Jan 31, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT:  Dear Mr. Armstrong
You have to ask yourself the question..how have most fiat currencies ended?
The answer is simply, how you HAVE to prepare yourself for the endgame, irrelevant of WHEN it may occur, the time to prepare is always yesterday, but if yesterday is too late, today shall be also a good time.
Centre of field preparation for the end of a fiat currency, should be our only aim. The rest is all left of field play.
Playing the Endgame may be the only way to survive what is dead ahead.
Unfortunately, it has to occur, political/ social pressure shall ensure this. The Elite gave been well aware of this endgame since the inception of The Keynesian Model and have been acutely aware for at least a decade.
Kind regards GH

REPLY: I have been in countless meetings
They did not know how this would end. They always assumed they had the power to endure
Only now is the handwriting on the wall
It has nothing to do with fiat currency.
Rome fell as well.
It is fiscal mismanagement regard of what you call money at that time. But the real factor was the collapse in CONFIDENCE after Valerian I was captured by the Persians, turned into a royal slave4, and then stuffed as a trophy when he died. We have Biden and he is no more the leader of the free world, but the laughing stock of world leaders. As the CONFIDENCE in the Biden Administration collapses as he has already surrendered to Ukraine to Putin.

So it has NEVER been what is money. For even when the money is precious metals, the Silver Democrats overvalued silver which led to gold fleeing the country and JP Morgan had to bail out the country in 1896 with a gold loan thanks to the Democrats taking bribes from the silver miners to overvalue silver. The US was drowning in silver.

Remember William Jennings Bryan’s famous speech against the gold standard?


Of course, it was the silver to the gold ratio that became the presidential election topic in 1896 and virtually bankrupted the country because the government by decree overvalued silver at 16:1 It was the fiscal mismanagement and the currency was precious metals.

Premier Jason Kenney of Alberta Canada Complains Truckers Are Locking Down Government

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 30, 2022 | Sundance | 293 Comments

A cross-border trucker unity rally in Alberta Canada, a show of support for their brothers in Ottawa, has triggered the ire of Alberta Premier Jason Kenney.

Apparently, when government officials lock down their citizens, the complaining voices of the people are irrelevant.  However, when the tables are turned and the people lock down the government highway in protest, the state officials don’t like it.  Go figure.

CANADA – […] The protest along Highway 4 south of Lethbridge began Saturday in support of a national anti-mandate convoy that arrived in Ottawa earlier in the day.

The movement was sparked by a federal mandate that came into effect this month requiring unvaccinated Canadian truckers re-entering Canada from the United States to get tested for COVID-19 and to quarantine.

Vehicles remained parked on the important southern Alberta trade route, blocking traffic to and from the border and the Village of Coutts on Sunday. Mounties said they were continuing negotiations with the protesters to re-establish highway access. (read more)

Military Database Shows Alarming Increase in Adverse Medical Conditions After Forced COVID Vaccination

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 30, 2022 | Sundance | 393 Comments

During testimony last week, attorney Thomas Renz gave testimony {Direct Rumble Link} on behalf of whistleblowers inside the military medical system who have access to vaccination data that is withheld from the general public.

The data on adverse medical conditions that surface after vaccination within the military is contained on a system called the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED).  The documents that were released to Thomas Renz are now being reviewed {Direct Rumble Link}.  The resulting information is very disturbing.  WATCH:

The research took five-year averages of medical conditions and then compared the track record to the results after the mandatory military vaccination program was initiated.  The results are alarming:

Heart Attacks +269%
Pericarditis +175%
Myocarditis +285%
Pulmonary Embolisms +467%
Cerebral Infarction +393%
Bell’s Palsy +319%
Guillain-Barre +250%
Immunodeficiencies +275%
Menstrual Irregularity +476%
Multiple Sclerosis +487%
Miscarriage +306%
HIV +590%
Chest Pain +1,529%
Labored Breathing +905%

[Article on the data Here]

Attorney Thomas Renz also appeared on The War Room with Steve Bannon to discuss the issues.


Sunday Talks, Lindsey Graham Goes Full Color Revolution, Supports Race-Based Political Judges, Unilateral War Against Putin and J6 Targeting

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 30, 2022 | Sundance | 341 Comments

Senator Lindsey Graham is the male version of Hillary Clinton, complete with purple tie uniform today.  In this interview the full DeceptiCon Senator Graham is on display; remarkably so.  For this exhibition CBS’ Margaret Brennan plays the role of Sean Hannity.

Senator Graham starts by showcasing his support for the Biden gender and skin color rules for a black, female nominee to the Supreme Court.  The South Carolina senator then proposes a war with Russia using Ukraine regardless of whether Ukraine or any other European country supports it.  Finishing off the agenda of the deep swamp, Graham proclaims his support for the indefinite detention of J6 protestors who he said, “deserve to have the book thrown at them.”

2,000 Mules, The Background of the 2020 Election Fraud

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 30, 2022 | Sundance | 360 Comments

CTH continues to be cautious with measured expectations around this story, because a thoroughly corrupt and politically compromised DOJ has possessed all of this information for almost a year. {GO DEEP} There will be a response.  Likely a massive, coordinated and weaponized response from the totality of the most politically corrupt DC system in our nation’s history, every branch, and their aligned ideologues outside government.

First, the preview {Direct Rumble Link}:


No one wants to join Michael Hastings, and yet that is the scale and scope of the risk inherent within this story.  The good news is that more Americans are awake to the issues now than ever existed.  We have Donald J. Trump to thank for that.

Catherine Engelbrecht is a genuine national hero, and her organization True The Vote (TTV) will be known in history long after these decades are passed.  Long-term readers of CTH also know we fully support Englebrecht and her team, we always have.

September 2021 – What people call “ballot traffickers” are actually ballot “mules.”   Most of the information in the previous Breitbart article about this issue is accurate [SEE HERE].  CTH shared some information in June 2021 about this investigative effort [SEE HERE].  However, I am 100% certain the DOJ and Attorney General Merrick Garland are waiting to see what is done with this evidence before they focus their targeting.

We know, to a demonstrable certainty, the political network of the Lawfare crew is also on standby against this election investigation, as well as major DNC legal operative Marc Elias who recently left Perkins Coie to set up his own shop specifically to work on this issue.  Elias took 13 lawyers and ten partners to his new firm.   That puts the DOJ, Lawfare and Elias’s new team all in alignment against Englebrecht, True the Vote and the American people.  Now, do you sense the scale of risk in this story?

[CTH JUNE 2021] – The next war will not come from foreign soil.  It is about to happen based on a great awakening in the heavily corrupt and manipulated voting system in the United States. The battle is about to happen right here on our soil.

BIG PICTURE – United States Attorney General Merrick Garland is pre-positioning assets from the DOJ and FBI [LINK]. Simultaneous to this, the U.S. military leadership is purging patriots and putting all service members under surveillance [LINK]. These two factual events are directly related.

In the background of these maneuvers, Big Tech and Corporate Media have been instructed to push the “domestic extremist” narrative, and any truth-tellers are considered subversive and against the interests of the U.S. government. The January 6th DC protest is being used as evidence for that narrative. Deplatforming, censorship and ultimately control of voices who would warn of the larger issues continues daily.

POINT ONE – Even before the November 2020 election, there were groups of patriots who knew mail-in ballots were a tool toward an objective – the 2020 Presidential election. Anyone with a lick of common sense, and the vast majority of readers right here on this website, knew that deployment of mail-in ballots was going to be the largest unknown variable in the 2020 election. The DC-based apparatus was all in. 2020 was the big one.

POINT TWO – There is data, massive publicly available geolocation data, available for purchase. As you know, data is the currency of the Deep State (U.S. Intel Community); however, insofar as the intel community uses federal authority to control data (at taxpayer expense), there is also a massive amount of data in the hands of private groups and individuals that can be legally purchased.

As a consumer, you know your cell phone data is used by private industry commercially to sell you stuff and provide services. That is one type of data that is available for commercial purchase. The feds have access to that type of data at their fingertips, and indeed they use it often illegally to circumvent fourth amendment protections. But that type of data is also available for purchase; the issue is the cost. Big Data requires a lot of money to purchase, and then even more money to create the technological systems to use the data effectively.

♦ Put the two points above together, and citizen led patriot groups have purchased big data to analyze the 2020 election. These projects, and there are several, have been ongoing for quite a while. As you know from our own crowdsourcing research in the past, you can easily tear apart large stories by focusing on the granular evidence that is available in the public sphere.

The result of that crowdsourcing research is incredibly accurate, because it is not based on supposition, it is based on empirical data points. Photographs, maps, camera shots, CCTV images, spatial and time patterns, geolocation, flight patterns, airline tracking, and even star patterns at night have been used by hobbyist puzzle solvers and citizen researchers to crowdsource information of interest. CTH has taken apart several falsely framed investigative narratives (Trayvon, Mike Brown, Freddie Gray, RNC roadmap etc) with focused crowdsourcing research. Heck, even 4Chan folks were having fun finding Shia LaBeouf’s “he will not divide us’ flag despite him hiding it in the middle of nowhere.

The major point is with the internet at our fingers, and enough data available for review, just about anything can be deeply researched, and then subject matter experts can guide the analysis and result…with stunning accuracy.

You have likely seen the same type of crowdsourcing research being taken with the 2020 election data. The same type of statistical and analytical methodology on voting patterns at a macro and micro level. Additionally, some groups, some very smart groups that have been in the business of voter integrity for a long time, have also been reviewing massive data purchased in the wake of the 2020 election.

There are seven targeted voter regions where similar ballot issues and statistical impossibilities have been identified nationwide: Fulton County, Georgia; Wayne County, Michigan; Maricopa County, Arizona; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Clark County, Nevada; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Madison, Wisconsin.

The 2,000 ballot mules were paid by dark money interests that included the DNC and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

In the late spring of 2021, Federal law enforcement agencies were informed about some of the results from geolocation of cell phone data surrounding “drop boxes” used to collect voter ballots. Essentially, a mapping of specific cell phones which identifies their group association and outlines their activity in multiple states. The data is the data and cannot be refuted.

Instead of moving toward investigation and the administration of election laws, the United States Dept of Justice immediately transmitted the identified evidence of election fraud to their political allies who were involved in the 2020 election fraud.  All moves from that moment forward were a deployment of assets against public awareness.

All of the proactive moves, by AG Merrick Garland and DAG Lisa Monaco (executive branch), have been coordinated with Nancy Pelosi and her J6 effort (legislative branch), with the intelligence apparatus within government, and with allies outside government in Lawfare and the DNC.

While the U.S. Dept of Justice assembled their election exposure defenses and counterattack, a deliberate effort to cover up the election fraud, the private sector investigation into that fraud continued.

Very specific data-maps in key precincts were cross referenced with public audits.  The cell phone travel of these organized ballot mules creates a map of their activity.  Additionally, many of ballot collection sites have CCTV systems; some CCTV operations were actually mandated by legislation that authorized the collection drop-off locations. It is not coincidental that public records requests for those CCTV recordings were met with hostile denials and efforts to stall production.

CTH anticipates a massive amount of pushback from the U.S. Department of Justice based solely on the findings of cell phone data that has tracked “ballot mules” via geolocation and mapping. These are ground level activists that appear to have been part of a coordinated effort to collect ballots, walk them through a process, where they were filled out in a single location, and then dropped off at collection and tabulation sites.

The bottom line is this…. AG Merrick Garland knows a powder keg could explode as soon as the majority of American people discover just how manipulated the election of 2020 was. His previous announcements to double the staff of the DOJ Civil Rights Division voter unit was not to protect election integrity, but rather to position his resources for a war against a looming storm of election review outcomes.

The deep and irrefutable research was taking place, mostly very quietly, in the background. I expect the government response to the final assembly of findings will be a combination of the DOJ/FBI “domestic extremist” narratives, combined with racism accusations, claims of election disinformation and eventually the full weaponized deployment of the DOJ and FBI against the teams who put it together.

The Alinsky model: Isolate, Ridicule and Marginalize your political opposition, in combination with the use of arrests and threats by the justice department.  [LINK 6/14/20] …Or, they could simply use the approach they deployed against Michael Hastings.
