NATO Preparing for World War


Armstrong Economics Blog/War Re-Posted Sep 29, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

I know for a fact that the US military is deploying some reservists to Romania to train European soldiers. The reservists have been told that the war will escalate, and as a soldier told me, “things are getting really bad over there.” They will be training the Europeans to fight against Russians for at least six months. NATO is constructing a battlefield in Romania for this extensive training. The Cincu military training facility already exists but is undergoing a massive expansion.

This is precisely what Russia feared long before entering Ukraine. I reported that Russia knows it is fighting the West and not simply Ukraine. NATO has increased its presence around Eastern Europe this year and has no plans to de-escalate the situation. There are over 40,000 troops on the ground across Eastern Europe, and more are set to arrive. In fact, NATO will establish four additional “multinational battle groups” in Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, and Bulgaria.

Colonel Vincent Minguet, the commander of the NATO Combat Group in Romania, said the plan is for “the creation of a permanent, stronger battalion, with more heavy weapons, to prevent any aggression or any destabilization in Romania.” Alarmingly, Minguet believes that training will last for four or five years. They are planning for a long-term ongoing battle fought among numerous nations, aka a world war.

Who Sabotaged the Nord Stream Pipelines?


Armstrong Economics Blog/War Re-Posted Sep 29, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

I rarely believe in coincidences. Everyone is perplexed as to why there are sudden leaks in the Nord Stream pipelines in the Baltic Sea connecting Russia to Germany. The first explosion was recorded on Monday near the Danish island of Bornholm. The second blast happened later that evening and was so powerful that scientists equate it to a 2.3 magnitude earthquake.

Numerous people are claiming that Russia sabotaged the pipeline, but numerous clues indicate someone else was at play. Radek Sikorski, Poland’s former minister of national defense and EU Parliament member, posted an image of the leak with the caption, “Thank you, USA.”

The USA is certainly no stranger to targeting Russian pipelines. In January 1982, Ronald Regan and the CIA planned to destroy the Soviet Union’s economy by using the technology available at the time to create a massive explosion. The US wanted to block Europe from importing Soviet Western gas amid the Cold War and was willing to take extreme measures. Thomas C. Reed, a former Air Force secretary who served in the National Security Council, wrote a book entitled “At the Abysss: An Insider’s History of the Cold War.”

“In order to disrupt the Soviet gas supply, its hard currency earnings from the West, and the internal Russian economy, the pipeline software that was to run the pumps, turbines, and valves was programmed to go haywire, after a decent interval, to reset pump speeds and valve settings to produce pressures far beyond those acceptable to pipeline joints and welds,” Reed writes. According to the Washington Post, Reed later commented that it was the “most monumental non-nuclear explosion and fire ever seen from space.”

What about other nations in Europe? No one is claiming responsibility, but they are stating that it was a deliberate act of terrorism. “It is the authorities’ clear assessment that these are deliberate actions -– not accidents,” Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said Tuesday. Sweden’s Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson said, “it is probably a case of sabotage,” and they are not ruling out any scenarios. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki also called it “an act of sabotage.” “The era of Russian domination in the gas sphere is coming to an end,” Morawiecki declared. “An era that was marked by blackmail, threats and extortion.”

The United States is also claiming to be perplexed by the issue. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said she would not “speculate on the cause.” US President Joe Biden hinted at the cause in February 2022. In the video above, Biden tells reporters that if Russia invades, “then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.” When a reporter asked just how the US would complete the task, Biden ominously said. “Trust me, we will do it.”

This was clearly an act of sabotage, but who was the culprit? The West is pointing to Russia, while Russia is pointing to the West. Something does not add up.

Canada to End Vaccine Mandates


Armstrong Economics Blog/Canada Re-Posted Sep 28, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Canada is finally ending the absurd COVID vaccine mandates. No, Trudeau did not come to his senses. The truth of the matter is that the majority of people dying from COVID are the triple and quadruple vaccinated. In fact, they account for 90% of COVID-related deaths in the past three months.

There is true mass psychosis surrounding the vaccination. It does not prevent transmission or infection. Despite that being a known fact, politicians are eager to promote the vaccine, along with the media that continues to push boosters on every platform available. People are bringing their babies and elderly loved ones to get the latest vaccine with lines out the door. What happens now when the mask falls and people realize the truth? There are people crying online that it is “too soon” to remove the vaccine requirement. It is cognitive dissonance. They cannot allow their brains to process that they were lied to for years. The vaccine only weakened people’s immune systems and made them more susceptible to COVID.

IT WAS NEVER SAFE AND EFFECTIVE.

I congratulate the Canadian Truck Convoy and all others who risked their liberty and lives to protest this false narrative. The silent majority has won, but at what cost? Countless lives were destroyed over this mandate. People lost their livelihoods and homes. Some who I personally know were forced to flee Canada as they were not willing to risk their health. Businesses were ruined. Families were separated as the demonized unvaccinated could not even enter Canada. Lives were completely uprooted due to this vaccine mandate imposed by the Trudeau Administration.

And now they want to pretend everything is ok and sweep it all under the rug. No. We should remember what Trudeau and the globalists did to the people. The unvaccinated were gas lighted and banished from society for years. The people were threatened in every way possible until they agreed to submit to the government’s order. We now see how much control the government has over the people. Public confidence will never be the same.

Tucker Carlson Discusses Nord Stream Pipeline Sabotage, Almost Certainly a U.S. Covert Action Against Russia


Posted originally on the conservative tree house September 27, 2022 | Sundance 

Tucker Carlson accurately outlined the most likely suspect of the sabotage against Russia’s Nord Stream I and II pipeline today.  When you consider the media blitz by Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, last weekend (ABC, CNN, NBC and CBS); specifically pointing out the U.S. position against Russia; it is almost a certainty that U.S. action was behind the underwater detonation of explosives to take out Nord Stream pipeline system.  WATCH:

Newsom Begs Illegals and Out-of-State Citizens for Votes


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Sep 27, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

The left is so afraid of a red wave this November that they will do anything to allow illegals to vote. California’s Gavin Newsom, who admitted his party is “getting crushed,” signed into law an act that will permit illegal immigrants to obtain an official government-issued ID. “We’re a state of refuge – a majority-minority state, where 27 percent of us are immigrants,” Newsom said after signing the legislation. “That’s why I’m proud to announce the signing of today’s bills to further support our immigrant community, which makes our state stronger every single day.”

“I mean, if we are going to be realistic, they pay you to be homeless here.”

In addition to providing illegals with government IDs, Newsom is campaigning for votes in other states. His campaign has placed billboards in seven states, urging women to move to California where abortion is legal (a bit odd since women do not exist in woke America). Newsom placed billboard and newspaper ads across Texas to criticize the state’s gun laws, claiming California is so much safer. He has even run commercials in Florida to beg people to move to California.

Newsflash: people live in other states because they do not want government tyranny and sky-high taxes. Democrats love saying that “Democracy is under attack” while threatening to remove our freedoms. The exodus from California continues as civilians and businesses can no longer handle living under Newsom.
