Bursting Biden’s Ballot Bubble

Pop! Goes the Cheater

Joe Biden is not my president. He may be the Resident in Chief at the White House, but he doesn’t deserve to be there. The election was stolen for him by the Socialist Democrats. Socialists always think in terms of ends justifying the means. They have no regard for the law and too many courts are populated by Obama sycophants.

Biden was despised and ridiculed, but the powers that be chose him to be the nominee because he’s utterly corrupt and will do as he’s told. We saw little of him on the campaign trail. His masters knew he was a gaffe machine. When he did hold a ‘rally’ a few dozen people showed up. President Trump drew tens of thousands of enthusiastic supporters. Kamala was and is despised even more than Biden and she’s just as corrupt. Perhaps that’s why Biden was told to choose her as his running mate.

Biden lost the election. The Democrats knew he was going to lose. Biden is a doddering, demented fool. They knew cheating was necessary to remove President Trump from office. Mail in ballots were stuffed. Dead people voted. Biden ballots on palettes were delivered in the dead of night. Election machines were hacked. Biden received more votes than Obama did.

Yeah. Sure.

Arizona can start the dominoes falling. Once fraud is proven, other key states may follow suit and Biden will be seen as a criminal, not a president. Joe belongs behind bars, not behind a desk at the White House.

An Interview With Putin


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Jun 17, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Despite all the accusations thrown at Putin, my assessment of world leaders is clear that he is the most intelligent of the entire lot. In this piece, he brings up the ruthless arrest of 450 people who “stormed the capitol” on January 6th and how the Democrats are imprisoning them for 15 to 20 years for simply walking into the building. This has been nothing but theatre because they wanted to paint Trump as evil and they will do anything to further that political agenda despite these people did not do anything. What Putin points out is the hypocrisy of the United States. On that score, he has a point. These people do not deserve imprisonment.

The journalist asking such a direct question of Putin would NEVER happen in the United States with the end of our true Freedom of the Press. Every person I know who has come to the West from Russia and Eastern Europe, all say the very same thing. What they fled is now here.

Agree to Disagree


Armstrong Economics Blog/Humor Re-Posted Jun 17, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Politicians never agree to disagree. In America, politicians can only see things in black and white (i.e., red or blue). The two sides act like magnets attracting. Bipartisanship is a show for the masses. Reverse psychology is defined as “the principle or practice of subtly encouraging a behavior or belief by advocating its opposite.” Perhaps the right should advocate to shut down the economy and herd in the masses so that the left opposes.

In rhetoric there is logos (logic), ethos (credibility/trust), and pathos (emotions/values). Obama and Trump appealed to the masses by seeming like “one of us” (ethos), driving points home (logos), and of course, pandering to their audience (pathos). Even with George W. Bush, people saw the candidate as relatable (ethos) and felt he had the same Texas-born values (pathos). With Biden, people simply voted for him because they hated Trump. Biden’s strength as a leader is questionable, even to those who voted for him. Yet, since people oppose Trump, they voted for the other candidate without checking his credentials.

Biden & the Corruption of Just Klaus Schwab?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Climate Re-Posted Jun 17, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Biden overruled his staff to lift sanctions on the Nordstream 2 pipeline against all the Build Back Better agenda of Klaus Schwab. Some people are wondering if the Russians have something on Joe? They cannot imagine the guy who ran of the environment would flip and go against his own staff. The word behind the curtain is that they are beginning to see that they cannot cut off fossil fuels and to shut that down, more than 10% of the German people could die from the lack of heat. You have to dig deeper.

In its latest Monthly Oil Report, the IEA called on OPEC+ to increase production in order to counter higher demand in 2022. Some politicians are getting cold feet and realize that Klaus Schwab has gone way too far. This is the feedback we are getting. Schwab seems to be relying on our models and is now warning about rising civil unrest and he has been proposing crackdowns upon the people and lockdowns to force his agenda through.

As I have said before, this Great Reset will fail. You cannot change the economy like this in two years or less. They are running out of time. It would not surprise me if we start seeing the WEF itself under siege. It will not take long for the people to figure he is the source of this crisis.

Biden Press Conference


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Jun 17, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

The interview of Biden was very interesting besides him losing his temper. Biden seriously mischaracterized the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick portraying that all the rioters were criminals and they killed a police officer when they stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 in a bid to prevent Congress from certifying Biden’s win. He did exactly as he always accuses Putin of misrepresenting the facts. In this case, Putin likening the federal prosecution of hundreds of rioters to his own crackdown on anti-government protests. Biden called it “a ridiculous comparison” butr it is no different. The FBI confirmed that not one weapon was found among the rioters so the constant characterization that this was an “armed insurrection” has been simply propaganda. Biden said:

“It’s one thing for literally criminals to break through a cordon and go into the Capitol, kill a police officer and be held accountable than it is for people objecting and marching on the Capitol saying ‘You are not allowing me to speak freely. You are not allowing me to do A, B, C, or D’” 

Initial reports of Sicknick’s death falsely claimed it was the result of him being bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher. The official autopsy later found the 43-year-old died after suffering a pair of strokes unrelated to the riot. For Biden to pretend the rioters killed him is playing the same political game they accuse Putin of.

As for Ashli Babbitt, 36, who was a rioter the police shot point-blank and killed her on the spot by a police officer was acceptable even though she was unarmed. Had she been black it would have been called racist.

In the aftermath, at least two police officers and one alleged rioter also committed suicide because of the political drama that the Democrats raised this level to for political points like AOC claiming she feared for her life when she was not even in the building.

COMMENT #1:  Re Institutionalizing of Real Estate Market
Hi Marty
Thank you for this post, I see your point that it is better that hedge funds buy real assets then plunge the world into a financial crisis with a pump and dump scam based on securitizing mortgages into packages calling them A rated when they were not… but it is very very very
bad for the american people.
In my lifetime corporations have taken over many areas where small businesses flourished –
mom and pop cafes are now Starbucks, small neighborhood hardware stores and general stores
are now Home Depot and Walmart…
We cannot let hedge funds strip americans of home ownership.
In italy, I looked at purchasing a property in Rome many years ago as I have family there.
I thought perhaps I could rent it out most of the time and use it occasionally.
Nope. The Italian government requires foreign buyers to rent out their properties for 8 years.
They have put in to place laws to dissuade foreigners and large monied interests from purchasing
homes out from under italian families and thereby kept the housing market away from Vancouver
like phenomenas or like what is happening in Florida right now.
I am sorry but I disagree that it is good hedge funds are buying homes, the middle class is taking one
more knife in their backs on this trend.
Please look out for the little guy, we need laws in place that restrict the monopolization of residential housing by financial titans.
Thanks for the blog
Alice

COMMENT #2: You may not admit who you advise, but it is clear that despite your low key, you are the only one big-money listens to. You say jump and they jump. Even China said they are using capital flow analysis and that was invented by you. All we have to do is read you and it’s easy to see what comes next. You were the only one saying this shift from government bonds to real estate and stocks. As you said, Barron’s did not believe you in 2010. Big-money did. The press may not cover you, and that is what big-money likes – exclusivity.

REPLY: I am not arguing that hedge funds buying homes is a good thing. It is better than the way they pulled it off in 2007-2010 and it is “institutionalizing” real estate that means it will provide more stability to the entire housing market while also shrinking the availability until they need money.

The real issue boils down to the fact that those in government are simply TOTALLY INCOMPETENT when it comes to anything to do with manipulating the economy. They look at a single issue and have no understanding that everything is connected. When they lowered interest rates to negative at the ECB, there was a conflict with other CBs. I warned that if they followed the ECB, they would destroy the bonds market. Europe has done so and we now see that pushing that domino only sets off a string of events.

The reason they are buying real estate is simply that they cannot earn income from government bonds anymore. I am so tired of trying to help with talking to politicians because they ONLY act in their own self-interest. I can tell you that Mario Draghi, which is responsible for this debt crisis the world has been hurled into, would sit in trading rooms to try to understand the markets.  He had NO experience as a trader for if he did, he would understand you cannot move rates negative for there is no way out. I know traders who would see him sitting in the corner of the room quietly observing.

As far as advice, there is a choice. I have opened up Socrates to the world. Big and small get to use it. Do not confuse the fact that I have a 40-year track record and the press will not cover me because they are only interested in opinions – not real analysis. The implication of the forecasts goes beyond merely the next trade. They reveal how the world really works. I managed money. I even ran a hedge fund for Deutsche Bank. Unless you do actual global trading, you will not see the connections. I had the lowest drawdowns and caught all the major moves since 1980.

You can claim to have made one great call. You can claim to have created a flawless model. But governments and big-money will NEVER commit to a hypothetical model. For it fails, and those who recommended it lose their jobs. That is reality. So, yes I have the longest track record. That counts for everything. I am trying to open the eyes of the world to see reality and to stop these types of shallow decisions that set in motion a sequence of events that they never anticipated.

The Tucker Carlson Solution to Deal With a Corrupt Intelligence Apparatus and FBI Will Not Work, Here’s Why


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on June 16, 2021 | sundance | 197 Comments

Last night and tonight, Fox News host Tucker Carlson led off the show with discussion of the “January 6th Insurrection” narrative.

On Tuesday night Carlson and Darren Beattie suggested some form of senate Church Committee 2.0 should be initiated in order to investigate the U.S. intelligence community, and specifically the FBI for their role in coordinating or facilitating the January 6th events.  On Wednesday night Carlson again recommended the U.S. congress should start investigating.

Last night and tonight, Fox News host Tucker Carlson led off the show with discussion of the “January 6th Insurrection” narrative.

On Tuesday night Carlson and Darren Beattie suggested some form of senate Church Committee 2.0 should be initiated in order to investigate the U.S. intelligence community, and specifically the FBI for their role in coordinating or facilitating the January 6th events.  On Wednesday night Carlson again recommended the U.S. congress should start investigating.

Putting aside the background motives of Tucker Carlson; and accepting he is making these recommendations in good faith; there is a fatal flaw in his suggestion – and the support from anyone else who would suggest the same or similar approach.  The fatal flaw is an obvious one that unfortunately too many people just will not, and cannot, accept….

The Legislative Branch of the federal government is part of the Intelligence Community corruption.  The oversight “gang of eight” (pictured above), are enablers and participants in the corrupt endeavors that Carlson wants them to investigate.

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) led by Chairman Adam Schiff, and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) led by Chairman Mark Warner, are part of the institutional corruption.  This is the problem, the core issue in the background, that too few people are recognizing as they begin to see the corruption within the intelligence community.  The legislative branch and the executive branch are working together; there is NO functioning oversight.  {CLIFF NOTES}

The American people cannot currently expect congress to investigate the Intelligence Community (Church Committee 2.0) in the same way as historical reference may suggest, because the Senate (SSCI) is working in coordination with the exact corrupt intel system they are supposed to oversee. In essence, the *check* in the system is facilitating the intel corruption.

I can give you examples, actual empirical examples, of how this is currently constructed. We have recent references, several of them, to prove the Senate Intel Committee (SSCI) is working hand-in-glove with the agencies they are supposed to oversee. However, CTH is not alone in this depth of understanding; the executive branch of the United States government also knows this, and their behavior actually highlights their intent to cover up this issue.

That exact issue is why the U.S. Dept of Justice, Attorney General Merrick Garland, recently announced they will not permit any investigation of members of the intel committee for leaks (ie. compromises in national security). “Garland on Monday also met with news media executives about restricting the ability of leak hunters, after the disclosure that the Trump Justice Department secretly seized phone records of reporters. A New York Times lawyer called the meeting positive.” [LINK]

The presented narrative for justification of the DOJ blocking any leak investigations surrounds a false image of press freedom and points to prior action by the Trump era DOJ to “hunt” leaks that come from inside the legislative branch intel committees (HPSCI and SSCI). However, that justification is a ruse. AG Garland and Deputy AG Lisa Monaco are not stupid. They know Adam Schiff (HPSCI) and Mark Warner (SSCI) are facilitating corruption that exists within the intel agencies. As a result “leak hunters” in the Biden administration are forbidden from exposing the corrupt legislative coordination.

This is what I have been highlighting for two years, including when I wrote THIS long before Garland made that protective announcement. Sources inside the DC apparatus gave me specific information about how the legislative branch (intel committees), judicial branch (FISA and federal courts) and executive branch (FBI, DOJ-NSD, DNI, DIA, CIA etc) work together to continue allowing the intelligence apparatus to avoid any oversight.

Congressional oversight has been compromised. The intel system is self-aware and they have structured the current system (through the legislative branch) to protect themselves. Quite simply, they are working together. This is why the proposal (Church Committee) by @DarrenJBeattie unfortunately cannot work. The SSCI and HPSCI are part of the intel corruption. Put another way, the oversight “gang of eight”, is in on it.

The system they created is now self-protecting, self-aware, and every member in both the executive agencies and legislative oversight committees are dependent on it. An example is the “advise and consent” process within the Senate confirmation process for Intel leaders.

The SSCI will not allow any (non corrupt) intel nominee who might disrupt the controlled system. This is why Trump nominees to ODNI (example) were blocked by the SSCI *even though* Republicans held the chair (Richard Burr). Preservation of a corrupt system is not a party specific issue.

This is also why the SSCI facilitated the installation of Michael Atkinson as Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG).  Atkinson was the DOJ-NSD chief legal counsel to John Carlin and later Mary McCord; both were at the center of the Carter Page FISA issues.

Michael Atkinson had a vested interest in keeping the corrupt system protected (including the FISA Court).  When Atkinson left the DOJ-NSD he was nominated to the ICIG position (earworm Pence recommendation), confirmed by the SSCI and then Atkinson immediately went to work to facilitate changing the rules of the Office of The Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to modify what was allowed for whistleblower complaints.  Those changes facilitated the first impeachment effort from an anonymous person inside the CIA. {Go Deep}

Simultaneously, the former head of the DOJ-NSD, Mary McCord [a Lawfare ally], had left the DOJ and assumed a position as the lead lawyer on Chairman Jerry Nadler’s judiciary committee where the articles of impeachment were created.  McCord was awaiting the complaint that Atkinson facilitated.  It was a coordinated effort.

I share that specific example as evidence of how the corruption between multiple agencies in the intel establishment are coordinated.  The legislative branch, executive branch & judicial branch all worked at the behest of the larger control forces with the Intelligence Community.  A unified ideology was the motive, remove Trump.

[SIDE NOTE. Notice where Mary McCord is now in 2021.  McCord, the person who went with former DAG Sally Yates to confront White House Counsel Don McGahn about Michael Flynn, is still working inside the system to keep the intelligence corruption activity monitored, hidden and protected {Go Deep}].

This is how the system protects itself.  There is no possibility for a Church Committee oversight approach to work because the House (HPSCI) and Senate (SSCI) are part of the intelligence corruption. This was done (over years) by design.  The oversight is part of the problem. They are participating; actively participating.  The senate is not going to investigate or expose intelligence corruption they themselves are a part of.

While I don’t know the exact solution to this specific problem, because we are not at the point where solutions can even be debated, I do know what it will take to solve the first part of the issue….

THE ISSUE? The American people don’t know the scale of the problem yet, as evidenced by Carlson’s suggestion.

We live in this bizarro world where people debate the hypocrisy of a “dual justice system”, without ever accepting that it is not hypocrisy – it is by design. The double standards are a feature, not a flaw. Remember, actual, real-life, Domestic Violent Extremists called Black Lives Matter & Antifa, tried to burn Washington DC in the summer of 2020. Not a single arrest. Not one. Not a single FBI tweet about “help us find those arsonists who attempted to burn St. John’s church”. Nothing.

The DOJ and FBI willfully and purposefully turn a blind eye to literal acts of domestic violence, shootings, beatings, arson, murder, riots and chaos -even attacks on federal buildings- and do nothing. There will be NO HELP from federal law enforcement in the confrontation of corruption. There will be NO HELP from legislative oversight in the confrontation of corruption. We The People are the people we have been waiting for; it’s up to us.

In the background I have been giving advice to some solid patriots about how to structure the baseline of information distribution that will be needed to break through the media firewall.   However, the key is to accept we are insurgents now.  We cannot expect federal law enforcement to support ANY endeavor to push sunlight to the surface.

If you know the police are actively supporting the drug dealers, perhaps even facilitating the distribution itself, it does you no good to take your information about drugs being sold in your neighborhood to those same police.  This is the issue with information about the 2020 election fraud.  There is a way to do it, but it requires outside the box thinking…. The ‘truth-tellers’ need to think and, more importantly, operate like insurgents; accepting that federal law enforcement views the truth as adverse to their interests.

Until then, it is futile to expect the legislative branch to investigate the FBI or intelligence community, because the legislative branch oversight committees are helping the FBI and intelligence community carry out their corrupt activity.  Meanwhile the DOJ (Garland and Monaco) are coordinating to keep the corruption from being exposed {Go Deep}.

Angry Joe’s Terribly Horrible and Embarrassing Presser After Meeting With Russian President Vladimir Putin


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on June 16, 2021 | sundance | 433 Comments

Russian President Vladimir Putin embarrassed a visibly cognitively impaired Joe Biden today in Geneva, Switzerland.  To be fair, Putin didn’t have to do much other than stand there and let the world see a mumbling fool with note cards try to remember his rehearsed lines on the international stage. 

However, it was likely the international embarrassment and the frustrated feedback from his handlers; in combination with his own internal admissions of inadequacy; that triggered the inappropriate angry outburst toward the traveling press corps:

One of Biden’s ongoing issues is the press corps wants and likes ‘their girl‘ Kamala Harris more than the installed Biden.  Even the ideological press corps laughs at just how hard they need to work to keep up appearances.  Pre-approved journalists asking pre-scripted questions to get rehearsed mumbling responses, must get a little boring after a while…. Move away from that control element, and you get what is highlighted above.  More below:

“As usual they gave me the pre-approved list”…

Mumbles incoherently about nothingness on China policy…

The declaration of the thing came up again…

Full video…. It’s all a hot mess.
