Biden – His Creative Destruction of America


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics re-Posted Feb 6, 2023 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Marty, I know you no longer want to work in Washington. Honestly, your experience is greatly needed. Everything you said that this braindead administration is pushing China and Russia together when Nixon had divided them is coming true. The WSJ has even reported that China is aiding Russia in Ukraine. With all due respect, what you have been saying is not rocket science. There is no common sense in the Biden Administration and every damn person who voted for him should be rounded up for treason.

Thank you for the straight facts.

GD

ANSWER: I understand what you are saying. There is nothing I can do in Washington. Biden has destroyed the world economy. Globalization is dead. Our sanctions have divided the world in two and Russia is immune to our sanctions.

These people in the Biden Administration have their agenda and it is to destroy the United States, our values, culture, and traditions, and remake it into a land of their vision. The Biden Administration has DELIBERATELY waged war against Russia to change our energy system and the goal has been to destroy Russia because 50% of its GDP is fossil fuels.

Even the BBC now reports that this war has accelerated the shift to clean energy, quoting a report now from British Petroleum. Even the Economist, the magazine that is incapable of walking a straight line because it slants to the left so much, is cheering Biden so you know we are screwed. They wrote:

“This is America in 2033, if the Biden administration has its way. In the past two years Congress has passed three bills, on infrastructure, semiconductor chips and greenery, that will make $2trn available to reshape the economy. “

This is why I say that Republican forms of government are the WORST possible. They are no different from a dictatorship other than we pretend to have a right to vote, but there is no representation. None of these issues were EVER submitted to the people for a vote. Biden is changing EVERYTHING about America to the point we no longer can even define what a woman is anymore according to this Administration.

Quite frankly, I can scream all I want, but there is no changing the direction of the country at the polls. Our system of government is precisely what the revolution was all about – no taxation without representation. We have no right to vote to reignite this cold war about to turn red hot because these people also think there are just too many of us running around and they have the RIGHT to create war and hopefully eliminate 50% of the population.

Unfortunately, I have to wait for Scotty to beam me up before I can escape this insanity.

“Eve of Destruction” was a protest song written by P. F. Sloan. Barry McGuire recorded the track in July 1965 about the Vietnam War. History repeats – always – because human nature never changes.

American Pie” is a song by American singer and songwriter Don McLean. Recorded and released in 1971. This was another popular song of the era.

Fox News – “ominous Great Depression warning”


Armstrong Economics Blog/Economics Re-Posted Feb 1, 2023 by Martin Armstrong

Fox Business is reporting that economic conditions are much worse than you are being told.  Unfortunately, this is the conclusion when you have ZERO understanding of the historical trends and economic conditions. It is true that the shortages of COVID have caused prices to rise faster than economic growth and most incomes.  Therefore, they conclude that our standard of living has been rapidly declining.  The number reveals that more than one-third of all U.S. young adults are being supported in part by their parents. Thanks to COVID, this disrupted society far greater than anyone is reporting. In addition to the shortages because of the lockdowns, by the end of 2020, more than half of young adults in America were living with one or both parents. That statistic actually exceeded the record high of the Great Depression.

Here is the worst part of this analysis. Many are jumping on the bandwagon claiming that the decline in real disposable income has been the largest since 1932 and therefore, this is a warning sign of a Great Depression is coming. They seem to be focused on the fact that the GDP report showed a significant decline in real disposable income, which fell over $1 trillion in 2022. Now let’s look closer!

First of all, the entire reason why unemployment rise to 25% during the latter part of the Great Depression was the Dust Bowl. Why? At that time, about 40% of the civil workforce was still agrarian. The Dust Bowl meant job loss. If you could not even plant crops, there was no need for people to pick crops.

Service during the Great Depression accounted for 17% of the workforce compared to 44%+ today. Government, federal, state, and local, was 22% of the civil workforce during the Great Depression compared to 33% by 1980. Things have continued to evolve and by 2019, services represent 79.41%. Agriculture is now a tiny fraction of what it once was – 1.41%.

In the USA, at the state level, their share of the civil workforce varies greatly. Florida is at about 11.3% compared to New Mexico which is 22.5% – a government employee’s paradise. The lowest is Michigan at 10.1%.

During the Great Depression, the entire reason for the collapse in disposable income was the collapse in agriculture which created a collapse in income due to massive unemployment. That is totally different from the crisis we have today.

Here we have rising prices due to shortages and then central banks raising interest rates in a fool’s quest to stop inflation when it is not based on speculation. Moreover, the biggest borrower is the government, and rising interest rates will only increase their exposure to keep rolling over the debt. Therefore, governments have been borrowing year after year. What happens when the public no longer buys their debt? Real disposable income has been collapsing for completely different reasons since 1932. Here we have the costs of everything rising and then these people want war with Russia and China. Every war since the start of recorded history has resulted in inflation. Add to this, the total insanity of trying to end climate change by outlawing fossil fuels at a time when the climate is prone to getting colder.

We are already witnessing riots around the world BECAUSE of inflation. During the Great Depression, people were suffering from DEFLATION. So comparing just that statistic of a decline in personal income and projecting we now face a Great Depression, does not even qualify to be classified as analysis. That is no different from someone warning that carrots must be lethal because everyone who has ever eaten a carrot has obviously died.

Uniparty Peace or Violence? Ray DiLorenzo 


Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable  –  John F. Kennedy Is violent or peaceful revolution on the horizon?  The United States of America as the ‘Great Experiment’ in self-government is failing.  While people slept, elites have been allowed to take over, not in governing, but in ruling.  Elections are awash in fraud.  Government institutions are seemingly impotent in applying checks and balances…corruption is overflowing.  Our culture has been pushed to decline by a godless social ideology.   The elite have taken an active part.  They know the world is about to collapse or be changed, but they are prepared, lifeboats at the ready, while the common folk stare at the cold water nearing their feet. People are now talking about the Uniparty.  Who are they?  What are they? 

The Uniparty is a resurrected buzzword for the joining of the Democrat and Republican establishment to obfuscate the will of the American people and push forward The Great Reset for their own interests.  The perfect marriage.  They’re a veritable fifth column working to destroy America as founded, sometimes competing with each other for lead turncoat.   It includes bureaucrats, members of the media, big business, and academia. The Republicans involved (RINOS) are closer to Democrats than members of their own party, but many are so far up in seniority they dare not leave the party. They have become an unrecognized third party, more recently, a party dedicated to stopping the outsider, Donald Trump.  

Make no mistake, Mitch McConnell would rather be Minority Leader in the Senate than just a senator in a majority Senate.  Why else would he withdraw millions in support of 2022 Senate candidates?  He’s responsible for trillions in spending under Biden and the inflation we are all feeling.  He is a RINO in the first degree, a failure and a disgrace. Polled Democrats and Republicans say they are not well represented in government (PRRI).  Except for a brief respite during the Trump presidency, the GOP hasn’t truly represented their voters for many years.

 The term Uniparty has been applied loosely from time to time from at least FDR, but Ralph Nader gave it proper context in 2000 meaning the Washington establishment.  People have used ‘Uniparty’ for various purposes, neo-liberalism, green causes and the like.  But, it is now used primarily by conservatives to attack the linking of mainstream Republicans and Democrats against America First or conservatism. The Uniparty is not on our side.  They are essentially socialist and globalist or just lowlifes looking for opportunity.  They are a government within a facade of a government.  They have an agenda, and you are not part of it. Even though George Washington abhorred the thought of political parties, the human trait of forming tribes was always too great.  And now the tribe mentality has crossed party lines.

Why does it seem like America is on a fast track to a destination no one voted for?  No matter how we vote, no matter what we say, no matter what we reject in the market place, the country seems headed over a cliff, and we have no control over it.  How is it that Trump was able to turn our country around a full 180 degrees in just a few short years?  We were being held back by past administrations. The Uniparty has put our country on autopilot and programmed that autopilot with no input from the people. 

With only 15% of Americans saying our country is going in the right direction (AP), did we really vote for increased crime, inflation, higher taxes, open borders, more drug trafficking, censorship, the elimination of any morality?  Do Americans want 4,000 page bills smelling of pig, made into law in the middle of the night that no one has read?  Do Americans want legislation written in the shadows? Why can’t we win an election that reflects the voter’s sentiment? 

Even Democrats are getting nervous (80%).  Why do Disney and Hollywood keep releasing movies that shock our moral conscience, even when they fail at the box office? Hollywood complains that their earnings have fallen, yet they continue to give us junk.  Why is it more profitable to stay home rather than work?  Why do politicians seem to ignore their constituents?  Why do the Biden, Clinton and Pelosi families get to break any law they want?  Why does Congress name bills that don’t reflect content.  Over a year and a half ago, Congress approved Biden’s $2.5 trillion infrastructure bill.  Where’s the infrastructure?  Now we find out that only 25% of the bill had anything to do with infrastructure. We did get a $20 million heated sidewalk.  

 Americans were lied to with regularity during the Bush and Obama administrations and now with Biden.  We were not allowed to get what we wanted during the Trump administration… nor were we allowed to get what we voted for in 2020 and in 2022.  Not allowed?  By whom?  The Globalist Uniparty.  Since Tucker Carlson reported that the CIA had a hand in the JFK assassination, one can imagine Uniparty implication.   Representative Constitutional Democracy is dead in America!  It is dead because the Uniparty has willed it so.  Their power is more important than your freedom and liberty. It is considered ultra-conservative today to preserve our nation as founded. There is, however, a cadre of Republicans like Andy Biggs (AZ), Bob Good (VA), Andy Harris (MD), Lauren Boebert (CO), Matt Gaetz (FL), Matt Rosendale (MT), Eli Crane (AZ), Chip Roy (TX), and Byron Donalds (FL) that are determined to fix Washington, and they will not be deterred.   They refuse to compromise with a political cartel that is destroying America, or Kevin McCarthy who has a Conservative Review score of 54% (F).  They are our last refuge in this government…true courage!  These Representatives are doing their job.  They are representing their constituents who put them there and standing for the principles for which this country was founded.  What a concept.

Maybe McCarthy will lower his head a bit in remorse for his past political transgressions.  We are no longer the same country. It’s in the hands of the globalist establishment and they are not about to let go.  Oh, they may have allowed us to win a thin margin in the House because the number of votes couldn’t be overcome, or they just want us to think everything is normal, but who is the Speaker of the House?… an establishment shill?   Trump was sold as the anti-establishment president, yet many of his appointments were head scratchers.  It was a swinging door.  It was no surprise that he couldn’t get the wall built or the swamp drained.  Paul Ryan was Uniparty. Trump constantly criticized Bush’s WMD/Iraq war and then he appointed Bolton as National Security Advisor.  Go figure. I am not an anti-Trumper, but during the Trump administration, it became apparent that it was going to take more than a president to fix this country.  Trump was checked at every turn until his checkmate in 2020. In times of emergency, some react quickly, some slowly, needing time to process, in many cases to their detriment.  Now that agents from Hell are working to undermine our nation, removing the foundation holding it up, people are still trying to process what is happening in spite of all the evidence. 

Time is running out. My great fear is that the Uniparty is going to continue destroying our country for their purposes without opposition. Elections now seem futile.  The judicial system has been neutered.  Congress and the judiciary does not act even when they have legal precedent. Partisanship has taken the place of patriotism. Too many of our patriot politicians are mealymouthed, instead of expressing outrage. Profiles in courage seems relegated to a remote past. The new Congress must take the lead in fixing our country.  If the people take the lead, it is not going to be pretty. If enough people feel they no longer have a say in our government, my fear is that they will push back, and push back hard.  Americans will put up with just so much. 

Admiral Yamamoto recognized this after Pearl Harbor and said with regret, “I fear all we have done is awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”    Will the Uniparty relent, give power back to the people and bring us peace and stability or hold on to their power with a jealous obsession and inevitably bring about violence?  What does history say?

Unprecedented Migration Crisis Continues as the White House Must Replace Disenfranchised Americans


Posted originally on the CTH on December 21, 2022 | Sundance

Ask the why question five times to any complex problem and you get to the core of the matter.

Why is the Biden administration allowing tens of thousands of illegal aliens, aka ‘migrants’, to cross the southern border every day?

The answer is not complex.

Because the Biden administration wants tens of thousands of illegal aliens to cross the southern border every day.

If they didn’t, they wouldn’t.

The question is not why are they crossing, the question is why does the White House want them to cross?

A person of reasonable disposition would recognize that a corrupt and illegitimate administration, installed by an apparatus of government, is not really calling the shots.

As the Twitter Files have shown, albeit filtered as they are, U.S. candidate Joe Biden was installed by the collective weight of an intentionally manipulated information control operation, run and influenced by the United States intelligence community.

The installation itself sets the cornerstone for the understanding of every action that flows from it.

In general terms, the daily number of the inbound aliens must necessarily exceed the daily number of the American people who awaken to accept they are being victimized by the installed apparatus.

If 10,000 more Americans are negatively impacted every day and as a result awaken every day to the internal corruption, it only makes sense -from the perspective of the people in control- that 10,000 plus one is needed as replacements to retain stasis.

The scale of the inbound population must match the scale of the loss of support for the regime that exists amid the current population.  In the larger measure that sets the forward looking standard for the influx.

If fewer people were inbound than the number awakened, the regime remains under threat.  It’s a math issue.

Consider the 30,000 ft mindset of a Fabian socialist, or an ideology based on fundamental change, the threat is always a growing numerator.  The denominator must expand to compensate for the growing numerator.

Now, keep history of the Solidarity movement at the forefront of thinking.  In the U.S. example the numerator is awakening Americans and the denominator is the U.S. workforce.

Put aside armed or violent conflict for a moment and consider the ultimate threat to the regime as represented by the historic reference of the Solidarity movement.  If millions of Americans went on a general labor strike in protest to the political policies that are creating a diminished lifestyle, they would be striking from the position of knowing greater benefit in the past.  The population, in this case the U.S. workers, would be striking because they are losing something.  They are losing their standard of living.

How do you mitigate that risk?

The easiest way to mitigate the risk is to replace the disgruntled population with a new population who view the current standard of living as better than what they had.

The diminished standard is still far higher than the living standard the migrant holds as a reference. Therefore, if there is any national movement to push back against the regime, the new migrants have no vested interest in it.  They simply replace the workforce that is protesting.

How would the Polish Solidarity movement have succeeded if Lithuanian, German and Ukrainian workers flowed into Poland to replace the striking masses.  Or for this context, how does an American worker solidarity movement succeed if Mexican, Honduran, Guatemalan and El Salvadorian workers simply replace them.

You ask me why I continue to say the U.S. labor unions need to dispatch their communist leadership and quickly align with MAGA?   This is why….

NEW YORK — Some of the biggest cities and states led by Democrats are expecting an influx of migrants as soon as the nation’s Title 42 border restrictions are lifted — and they’re worried they won’t be able to handle the surge.

Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker said the state is scrambling to find housing ahead of the bitter cold winter while Chicago received more than two dozen migrants on Tuesday. New York Mayor Eric Adams is predicting 1,000 migrants a week will arrive in the city and is already weighing reopening a controversial tent encampment to accommodate them.

“Our shelter system is full, and we are nearly out of money, staff, and space,” Adams said this week. “If corrective measures are not taken soon, we may very well be forced to cut or curtail programs New Yorkers rely on, and the pathway to house thousands more is uncertain.” His administration is calling the migrant issue an “unprecedented emergency.

Title 42, an immigration policy put into place during the pandemic, was scheduled to be lifted Wednesday, but Chief Justice John Roberts temporarily blocked the border rule at the urging of 19 Republican-led states, which appealed the plan to open up the nation’s borders again.

The stay by Roberts is temporary, and states are bracing for what’s next if — and when — Title 42 is eventually lifted. There’s added anxiety too over whether Republican governors will transport thousands of migrants to Democratic-led strongholds by bus or plane, as Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis did this year.

Over the last month, thousands of migrants have crossed into the U.S. at the Texas border ahead of the expiration of Title 42, a Trump administration pandemic policy that allows the U.S. to expel migrants in order to stem the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Last weekend, the mayor of El Paso declared a state of emergency to help manage the rush of people while Abbott deployed hundreds of Texas national guard and state troopers along the border to block migrants from entering the U.S. (read more)

The illegitimate regime of Joe Biden was installed by the collective weight of an intentionally manipulated domestic information control operation. That operation was run and influenced by the United States intelligence community, through the U.S. social media system (Twitter, Facebook, etc.), with the full support of a complicit legislative branch.

Set that cornerstone and then everything that comes after that process, including the need to control future elections, is a process of risk mitigation.

That reality is the ultimate reason why there is a disconnect between the American people and our government.

Every government and social institution are now predicated on the retention of fraud.  The U.S. system of government is now exhausting itself, spending the majority of time and institutional energy, maintaining the lies that underpin it.

One of the key institutions charged with maintaining that pretense is, wait for it…  the FBI.

Things making sense now?

Criminally Prosecuting Trump?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Dec 20, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

There was NEVER a question that the Democrats began their January 6th investigation with the intent to charge Trump criminally with an insurrection all to prevent him from running for office again in 2024. They have “recommended” that former President Trump should be prosecuted for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol attacks. This was probably the worst possible thing the Democrats could ever have done to the country. They are solidifying their weaponizing of the rule of law for political gain. They have succeeded in reducing the integrity of the United States to nothing better than a banana republic where they routinely imprison political opponents for political objectives.

Now what? The Republicans get to impeach Biden for the real criminal conduct of taking bribes and using the power of the office to threaten Ukraine to fire a prosecutor investigating the very company his son was hired to put on their board. What about Hunter who is on film with cocaine? If he were Black, he would go to jail for at least 5 years. The Democrats are also now rushing through to reduce the penalty for cocaine. Obviously, they are doing that for Huner. What about all the people in prison for the same thing for decades?

This is all part of the collapse of the United States. Washington is disgusting. It is all about war and they must defeat their opponent regardless if it is good for the country. Perhaps now as we enter 2023, this political corruption is just going to boil to the surface. Even Mitch McConnel, a career politician who hated Trump because he wanted to drain the swamp, joined in to condemn Trump.

People laugh at Donald Trump for questioning the results of the 2020 US Presidential Election, where Joe Biden secured more votes than any other president in American history. How quickly they forget that the entire DNC rejected Trump’s appointment for the duration of his presidency. Remember – “He Ain’t My President!“The Democrats have denied previous elections for every political tier, and some refused to concede. They said Trump incited the January 6 protest by questioning the election results, as if they have never questioned the authenticity of an election.

EVERY election is always rigged! The only question is did it actually affect the outcome? Nobody will dare to actually launch a real investigation into that. When a Grand Jury in 1908 investigated elections in Chicago, they concluded that there was probably NEVER a fair election. It does not matter which side, for they all are in the game.

The real problem is all the claims that there was “no fraud” when that is impossible. There is ALWAYS fraud in EVERY election. They prosecuted people in Florida for filing votes for people who died. That is not the question. The question is did the fraud change the outcome of the election?

These claims that there was no fraud are simply false. They do not wish to admit that there is vote harvesting and the oldest trick is to vote for dead people. That has been the joke in Chicago for decades – more people vote than those who are alive.

The Democrats rushed to get this out before the end of the year because the Republics have retaken the House. The Democrats will use this to attack anyone who Trump endorsed and Republicans in general. This is a lame-duck publicity stunt for it would be fantastic to watch Trump on trial for such a thing. He would get to call all the democrats and Hillary for spying on him and Russia Gate. That would be standard to show that the allegations have been political. It would be the Trial of the Century.

This House panel that’s been investigating the 2021 “insurrection” for the sole purpose of preventing him from running for politics again. He can be a felon and be president. That is not the issue. They must call it an “insurrection” to prevent him from office using that prohibition against any southerner who supported the “insurrection” of civil war from holding office.

The Democrats have totally undermined the integrity of the House. They unanimously agreed to refer Trump for prosecution for multiple offenses including insurrection, which Rep. Jamie Raskin said would disqualify him from holding office, if convicted, which was the whole objective of the investigation. Why was it Unanimous? Because the four Republicans were voted out of the office or decided not to run. All were so anti-Trump that they are a disgrace to the idea of impartiality. They were selected by the Democrats to be on the committee because they were anti-Trump. This was political theater from the outset regardless of if disliked Trump or not. Try standing before a judge you is your next-door neighbor who hates your guts and see if you get a fair trial.

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.
Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-Fla.
Rep. Elaine Luria, D-Va.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill.

Not one of these people will be returning to their office. These four Republicans illustrate why Trump was played for as a fool. There were Republicans who want the Swamp to remain as is – a better term would be a cesspool of corruption on both sides. These people have stabbed their own country in the back and are solidifying civil unrest and the demise of the country all for political greed.

I have heard some same that if Liz Cheney were on fire, they would not piss on her, they would only reserve that for her grave. What I can say is that I believe she is evil and the apple did not fall too far from the tree. Her father created the Iraq War and handed all the contracts to his company Halliburton, and when they wanted to investigate his firm, they resigned from their American domicile and moved to Dubai. And she was the vocal critic of Trump? Why? To protect the Swamp?

It’s the first-ever such referral of an ex-President in the entire history of the United States. Bill Clinton committed perjury and was never prosecuted. Richard Nixon was also to just resign.  However, this is a political stunt for there is no obligation for the Justice Department to prosecute Trump. It would be a real circus if they dared and unleash serious civil unrest.

Arizona Judge Permits Kari Lake Lawsuit to Proceed to Trial


Posted originally on the CTH on December 20, 2022 | sundance

Eight of the ten claims made by Arizona gubernatorial Kari Lake were dismissed by the state judge.  The claims dismissed were for violations of freedom of speech, invalid signatures on mail-in ballots, equal protection, due process, secrecy clause, incorrect certification, inadequate remedy, and constitutional rights claims.

However, two claims were approved for trial, fraudulent tabulator configurations and violations pertaining to chain of custody for ballots.  Mrs. Lake faces a steep hill to climb as the election results were certified as accurate and correct by county and state officials.  Lake will have to prove any tabulation errors or ballot custody issues were the result of intentional wrongdoing by Maricopa County officials.

ARIZONA – Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake is heading to trial after a judge allowed two out of 10 of her election lawsuit claims to move forward Monday.

Lake had brought forward a civil complaint earlier this month to overturn her 2022 midterm election loss against Democrat Katie Hobbs. Judge Peter Thompson decided that two claims, one regarding her allegations about illegal tabulator configurations and the other about violations pertaining to ballot chain of custody, can move forward.

“Our Election Case is going to trial. Katie Hobbs attempt to have our case thrown out FAILED. She will have to take the stand & testify. Buckle up, America. This is far from over,” Lake beamed on Twitter.

To be successful in her lawsuit, Lake’s legal team must prove that “printer malfunctions were intentional, and directed to affect the results of the election, and that such actions did actually affect the outcome,” according to the judge. She must also show that the lack of chain of custody was “both intentional and did in fact result in a changed outcome.” (read more)
