The Biden Administration Deliberately Destroyed Our Capacity to Produce Energy


Armstrong Economics Blog/Energy Re-Posted May 24, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Everyone who voted for Biden will continue to see their future utterly destroyed. The climate change people are deliberately destroying the capacity to produce energy without any alternative in place. The word from DC is that they “do not give a sh-t” about the people. They want to destroy our ability to produce fossil fuels before they are thrown out of office if that is even possible.

Alaskan Senator Sullivan explains that the Biden Administration is DELIBERATELY creating an energy crisis and then wants to blame oil companies and Putin. Senator Sullivan explains what Biden has done in just the last three weeks.

Then at the same time, they want farmers to grow only green crops and terminate beef production. The Neocons want to wage war against Russian and China. And nobody stands up and asks – “WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?”

Who’s to Blame for Rising Gas Prices?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted May 24, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Back in 2007, Nancy Pelosi was quick to blame the Bush Administration for rising gas prices. In 2018, Pelosi tweeted, “The price of regular unleaded gas has climbed 20% over the last year (thanks to Republican policies), eating away at working families’ paychecks – but according to @GOPLeader, you’re #BetterOffNow.” The national average for gas was under $3 at the time.

Now that gas prices have reached all-time highs, Pelosi and the Democrats no longer believe that the White House is responsible. “Gas prices will roughly cancel out the 2018 consumption boost from the tax cuts,” Schumer said at an Exxon gas station on Capitol Hill. “That’s right, whatever meager benefit working families may have seen from Trump’s tax scam for the rich has been wiped out by the gas prices that President Trump is responsible for.”

No one ever blamed Obama for rising energy prices after he did everything to end domestic production. Biden canceled the Keystone XL project as soon as he took office and reversed all the Trump-era policies to make America energy independent. However, the other side refuses to blame Biden or their current policies as gas continues to rise. Instead, they are blaming the president of a different country and have made no meaningful progress in curbing energy inflation. If they cannot admit the cause of the problem, they cannot concoct a viable solution.

Arrest Hillary Clinton and All Who Supported the Russian Collusion Hoax


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted May 24, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Hillary Clinton is GUILTY of manipulating the 2016 US Presidential Election. No one believed Donald Trump when he said that the Russian collusion narrative was “fake news.” Top Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified under oath in federal court and confirmed that Hillary Clinton devised the Russia/Alfa Bank rumors. She encouraged her people to promote the hoax to the press in a failed attempt to beat Donald Trump.

Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann first faced trial for the Clintons’ crime. The judge, Christopher Cooper, was an Obama appointee and was given an order to spare “the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee … [of] potential embarrassment.” The truth still came to light.

On July 28, 2016, former CIA Director John Brennan briefed former President Obama on the plan to lie to the public as “a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.” The sitting president was fully aware of the plan to smear Donald Trump’s name, and agreed to go along with “a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.”

Hillary went as far as to involve the FBI in her grand lie. No one could connect Trump to Russia or Alfa Bank, but Clinton and her campaign continued to promote the story. “Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank,” Hillary tweeted shortly after leaking the rumor. On October 31, 2016 (one week before the election), Campaign adviser Jake Sullivan stated: “Computer scientists have uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.” Sullivan added that he could “only assume federal authorities will now explore this direct connection between Trump and Russia as part of their existing probe into Russia’s meddling in our elections.”

Scapegoat Sussman is now under investigation for lying to the FBI, but what about the ring leader of this circus? Mook admitted that Hillary gave her stamp of approval for her minions to release the story to mislead voters deliberately. Hillary Clinton lied to the American people for her own self-interest and still lost the election. She did not want the public to investigate her email scandal and involved top intelligence agencies in her intricate rumor that has taken years to debunk. Voters should be outraged that the Democrats, Obama included, supported a narrative they knew was an outright lie.

GOPe and Media Narrative Engineers Set Stage for Tuesday Georgia Election as Referendum on Donald Trump Influence


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on May 23, 2022 | sundance 

You did not need to be a deep-thinking political follower to have seen the DeceptiCon seeds being dropped throughout Georgia in the past several weeks.  The basic narrative as engineered is that a Brian Kemp victory in the republican primary tomorrow proves the waning influence of MAGA Trump in the republican party.

Factually, albeit many subversively, from Ronna McDaniel to Mike Pence, to Mitch McConnell and every establishment republican who wants to see MAGA crushed in 2020 the same way they crushed the Tea Party in 2012, has been leaning heavily into the Georgia race to support incumbent governor Brian Kemp.  In the background of Georgia politics, the democrat operatives have been doing the same.  There is an alignment of interest.

The 2022 play book is similar to post 2010 era, when President Obama and Eric Holder triggered the IRS targeting of Tea Party conservative groups, and the republican old guard, including Mitch McConnell supported the effort.  One might say the modern UniParty in DC became most visible in the years between 2011 and 2014.  That UniParty alignment later became much more visible when the Tea Party 2.0 became MAGA in 2016 and drove the victory of Donald Trump.  The GOPe worked with Democrats to remove Trump as a result.

Now we see the UniParty, the bipartisan -reach across the aisle- professional political class, align again to use the Georgia primary in 2022 as the anti-MAGA launch point.  Their moves are as predictable as sunrise, and the advanced messaging from media transmits like a triggered flare from a tripwire.

CNN points out that a Brian Kemp victory means the era of Donald Trump is dead [SEE HERE].  The New York Times triggers a simultaneous flare from the flanking position.

New York Times – […] Thanks to Mr. Trump’s machinations, Georgia’s elections are once again freighted with outsized import, its primaries having become something of a referendum on the health of the Republican Party — and of American democracy.

A Kemp win would be a blow not only to Mr. Trump but also to the election denialism with which he has infected the G.O.P. Just this week, “stop the steal” truthers, determined to prove that Joe Biden cheated his way into the White House, won key primaries in North Carolina and Pennsylvania. Another election denier with Mr. Trump’s endorsement, Representative Jody Hice, is running for Georgia secretary of state against the Republican incumbent, Brad Raffensperger.

A strong win by Mr. Kemp would be the most promising signal to date that many Republican voters, at least in Georgia, are ready to move on — not from Mr. Trump per se, but from his toxic fixation on 2020. It could also provide a hopeful model for other results-oriented Republican governors, evidence that they can thrive even without bowing to the former president’s anti-democratic obsessions. And if Mr. Trump plays things wrong, he could wind up damaging his own political fortunes as well. (read more)

The technical issues associated with the 2022 primary in Georgia are the real problem.  In many ways Georgia republican voters do not understand how the party has created the illusion of choice by manipulating the party rules.  I take criticism from those who are angered by my pointing out the obvious, but it’s not complicated really.  If the Republican party of Georgia did not want to manipulate the voting, they would never allow a system where Democrats select their candidate; it really is that simple.

Georgia is filled with battered conservatives who vote as republicans but do not see the UniParty backroom deals that have been made.  It takes a major event before the voters can pry the control levers from the private Club known as the Georgia GOP.

The ‘open primary’ is the tool the UniParty always exploits, and many people will remember Mississippi 2010 when the AME church network, the democrat political network, was paid by various Mitch McConnell allied PAC’s to vote against the insurgency represented by Chris McDaniel.

In Georgia a voter will select either the Republican or the Democrat ballot.  Most voters select the ballot that represents their affiliation.  However, the professional networks have organized operations where specific democrat constituencies go to the polls and take a republican ballot in order to select the weakest candidate in the primary.  Brian Kemp represents the interest of that Machiavellian voting bloc.

The Democrat candidate for governor, Stacey Abrams, is running unopposed.  It’s the perfect storm where the AME church, ‘Black Voters Matter’ and other networks like ‘The New Georgia Project’ can go play in the Republican primary again.  But it’s not all bad news though, many of those cross-party voters will have no issue voting for Hershel Walker.

Hopefully, Mike Pence endorsed Brian Kemp can be held under 50% in the primary and that will trigger a runoff.  That’s the best-case scenario for Donald Trump endorsed candidate, David Perdue.

If Kemp exceeds 50% and wins the republican primary tomorrow the screaming narrative on Wednesday morning in every headline will be predictable.  After all, the seeds of this operation were planted long ago….

Biden Admits U.S. Gas Prices Driven by Incredible Transition Away from Fossil Fuels


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on May 23, 2022 | sundance

During a joint press conference held in Tokyo, Japan, held by Joe Biden and Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Biden was asked about the financial pain Americans are feeling with massive increases in gasoline prices.

Outlining how his energy policy is directly related to the gasoline price, Joe Biden said: “Here’s the situation. And when it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over.” Yet again proving the intent of the administration is to implement the ‘Green New Deal’ through executive action.  WATCH:

This admission is akin to former President Obama saying, “energy prices would necessarily skyrocket” in order to achieve the goals of the administration.

Securing the Border


Armstrong Economics Blog/Migration Re-Posted May 23, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Former President Trump requested $5 billion to build the US-Mexico border wall. The amount shocked many who claimed it would be damaging to the economy and a waste of resources. However, a few short years later, the US agreed, with bipartisan support, to send 8X that amount to secure the Ukrainian border and protect them from Russian invasion.

Former President Trump and his advisors believed that illegal immigration cost the US over $200 billion per year. Many disagreed, yet some of the lowest estimates, such as one put forward by the Heritage Foundation, claimed that the US loses $54 billion annually due to the unsecured border. The exact cost is hard to estimate as it is unknown how many people enter the country each day.

The Pew Research center acknowledged that migrant encounters, not arrests, are at their highest level on record. The United States Border Patrol recorded 1,659,206 encounters with migrants at the US-Mexico border last fiscal year, surpassing last year’s high of 1,643,679. Moreover, a quarter of all migrant encounters in 2021 and 2020 (27% and 26%, respectfully) were repeat offenders, compared to only 7% the year prior before the pandemic restrictions further hurt struggling countries. Biden’s policies have enticed people facing economic hardship to come to America as

The claim that the US-Mexico border wall would pay for itself seemed outlandish during Trump’s presidency to many, likely due to his delivery, but the numbers indicate he was telling the truth. No one, aside from Rand Paul, seems to be publicly questioning why the US is willing to pay to secure a foreign border but not its own.

When Comedy Writes Itself


Armstrong Economics Blog/War Re-Posted May 23, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

George W. Bush attempted to condemn Putin’s invasion of Ukraine but had a Freudian slip and revealed his own war crimes. “The result is an absence of checks and balances in Russia, and the decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq — I mean of Ukraine,” Bush said. You cannot make this stuff up. Everyone laughs at his slip of the tongue reference about a decision his administration made that caused one of the longest US wars in modern history and claimed thousands of lives.

America invaded Iraq in 2003 under the false pretense of “weapons of mass destruction.” As we now know, no weapons were found, and the excuse was a plain lie. The assassination of Saddam Hussein crippled Iraq’s government and economy. On the other hand, Putin cited what he claimed to be a valid reason to enter Ukraine. The West only condemns wars that they cannot profit from waging.

Is America Committing the Sin of Athens?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Geopolitical Re-Posted May 23, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

This is the growing view of the United States thanks to the Neocons who are always scheming and want nothing but endless wars because they cannot sleep at night without hating someone as an enemy. Robert McNamara (1916 – 2009) who was a Neocon, at least repented for how he was wrong and let the country into a Vietnam War.  This Indian politician is explaining a view of America from the outside that I hear all the time, but you will never see it in the American press. It is deeply concerning for just as the propaganda has been turned up against Putin leading to unprecedented hatred of the Russian people, there is a major risk that the Neocons are turning the world to hate the American people as well. That is the requirement for World War III.

The Pelopesdian War that ended in the defeat of Athens in 404BC has eery parallels to our current situation. Athens had defeated the Persian invasion. They then established a league of nations where various Greek city-states paid tribute to Athens to protect them from another possible invasion that never came. The arrogance of Athens was crowned when they took the treasury of Delos and moved it to Athens. They then funded the construction of their acropolis.

The Peloponnesian War (430–404 BC) was fought between the Delian League led by Athens and the Peloponnesian League, which Sparta led. The cost of the 26-year war led to the first major debasement in monetary history. The Athenian Owl, which was the reserve currency of the known world which many countries issued imitations for commerce, was reduced from silver to bronze silver plated.

Here we are already starting to see unprecedented inflation running at 40% in many places.  The arrogance that brought down Athens has infected Washington, DC and our politicians think they can sanction the world and they will all tremble.

Athens also followed the Economic Confidence Model perfectly. We are now following that same cyclical model into our day of destiny – 2032. The West will lose its power just as Athens. There will be a new world order, but it will not be Schwab’s Great Reset. The power will shift to China just as it shifted from Athens to Sparta.

With $40 Billion Secured, Zelenskyy Says Ukraine War Must be Solved Through Diplomacy and Negotiations


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on May 22, 2022

Heh, it’s almost as if Team Zelenskyy read the tea leaves inside the New York Times editorial opinion recently [SEE HERE] that warned Joe Biden he better get to a negotiated peace deal quickly or the administration will look even worse than it already does.

Two days after the New York Times editorial board says, “it is still not in America’s best interest to plunge into an all-out war with Russia, even if a negotiated peace may require Ukraine to make some hard decisions; and the U.S. aims and strategy in this war have become harder to discern, as the parameters of the mission appear to have changed,” now Zelenskyy is saying he needs to enter diplomatic talks with Russia.

(BBC News) – The war in Ukraine can only be resolved through “diplomacy”, President Volodymyr Zelensky has said. Speaking on national TV, he suggested his country could be victorious against Russia on the battlefield. However, he added that the war could only come to a conclusive halt “at the negotiating table”.

Meanwhile, heavy fighting is taking place in and around Severodonetsk, as Russian forces step up efforts to seize the whole of the Luhansk region.

The end of fighting in the southern port city of Mariupol has freed up Russian troops for redeployment elsewhere and allowed them to intensify their onslaught in the east. Local governor Serhiy Haidai said the Russians were “destroying” Severodonetsk as they gradually surrounded it. (read more)

Don’t forget there was a critical point made two weeks ago by Defense Intel Agency (DIA) Director Lt. Gen. Scott Berrier, that not a single media outlet or politician discussed.  During his briefing to the Senate Armed Services Committee, Berrier was asked “can Ukraine win” the conflict against Russia?

Lt. General Berrier replied: “That is a difficult predication to make. I think where the assessment is at, is a prolonged stalemate should no factor change on either side. In other words, the Russians continue to do what they’re doing, and we continue to do what we are doing for the Ukranians.” [link]

The facts on the ground show that Russia has gained almost all of the territory they were trying to achieve.  The Ukrainians are getting crushed, and they’ve lost the ports and cities they were fighting hardest to defend.  “BBC correspondent James Waterhouse said Russia had increased its artillery and air strikes as well as missile attacks – gaining ground mile by mile in Luhansk while the Ukrainians are forced to retreat.”

Comrade Zelenskyy is like the idiot knight in the Monty Python skit who gets his arms and legs chopped off and shouts, “merely a flesh wound.”

In another development, Russia has switched off its gas supply to Finland after it refused Moscow’s demand to pay for fuel in Russian roubles.
