Who is America’s Enemy? Russia or the other Political Party?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Jan 18, 2023 by Martin Armstrong

In writing the Greatest Bull Market in History, published in 1986, I had to do all the original research. I read all the newspapers daily year after year to come to the realization that attitudes shift back and forth. It became very obvious that before FDR and the introduction of Marxism to the United States, the focus was on markets. With Roosevelt, he weaponized the Federal Reserve and just about everything else to further his agenda. Roosevelt demonized Pierre du Pont for he made a lot of money providing the weapons for World War I. Roosevelt called him the Merchant of Death, but then suddenly needed him again for World War II.

The nation is dividing significantly. This is why the United States cannot stand divided. The latest poll demonstrates that the forecast made by our computer is unsurpassed. The question presented was who is our enemy?

For Democrats, the top three results named Russia (31 percent) as our “greatest enemy,” followed by Republicans (26 percent) and China (16 percent).

For Republicans, the top three are China (35 percent), Russia (33 percent), and Democrats (12 percent).

We now are starting to see that we have an enemy within – the opposite political party. This is absolutely essential for it confirms the forecasts of our computer that have been common since our 2011 WEC.

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)

President Trump Was Correct About the Constitution and Elections – Kari Lake’s Lawsuit Shows Why


Posted originally on the CTH on December 5, 2022 | Sundance 

President Donald Trump came under massive amounts of fire recently for saying, “So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great “Founders” did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!

What President Trump is noting, is the exact same reason why Kari Lake’s lawsuit, like every other election lawsuit before it, will fail.   Our U.S. Constitution permits election fraud and manipulation, as long as that state level election fraud and manipulation does not break federal law.  {Direct Rumble Link} – WATCH:

Obviously, it would be frustrating for President Trump to ask legal advisors what can be done about certified results from fraudulently constructed elections.  The reply from the legal advisors around the state certification would frustrate anybody, because the constitution permits fraudulent elections.   The decision on how to conduct elections is entirely up to the states.

The states, via state legislature, determine their election rules, laws and outcomes that eventually lead to state certification.  If a state wants to block voters, impede voters, or manipulate the voting outcome, there is generally nothing in federal law to stop them – as long as the state or county does not break federal laws protecting classes or protected categories of persons.

Federal law generally prohibits disenfranchisement of people based on race, age, national origin, sex, marital status, disability, pregnancy, gender, sexual orientation and disability, along with other categories.

Federal law does not prohibit disenfranchisement based on ideology, political affiliation or outlook.  If a state or local election system wants to block voters based on affiliation or ideology, they can…. as long as it doesn’t have a disparate impact on the protected category.

If a state legislature wanted to assign 1/2 value to each Republican vote, there is nothing in the constitution that would prohibit that rule.

If a state election outcome results in the loss of 50% of the republican votes in the local or state election, there is nothing in the federal law that would correct the issue.  The state is responsible for certifying the results.

The supreme court will not hear an election controversy issue or legal challenge based on certified results from states.  The constitution permits states to conduct their own elections, and as long as federal laws are not violated, the state certification ends the discussion.  This is the great dichotomy within U.S. election around election manipulation by a state or local election officials.  There is no federal recourse if no federally protected category was adversely impacted.

The DNC argues election disenfranchisement, rules, dates, times, locations, etc based entirely on protected federal categories, ie. the date or method of the election has an adverse impact to a specifically protected category of racial minorities.  This is the typical DNC lawsuit.

EX. the RNC or DNC candidates have no legal footing to sue in federal court if everyone wearing a green shirt was turned away from county polling locations; unless they can prove that a green shirt was worn by a higher percentage of a protected category of persons (i.e., disparate impact).

Additionally, due to the private nature of the corporations that run candidates, notably the RNC and DNC, there is also no prohibition to stop the RNC or DNC from disapproving candidates unless they also were discriminating based on a protected category.   Not coincidentally, political parties are not recognized in the U.S. constitution.

This election reality is why control over state level elections is where the battle has to be fought.   Once a state certifies the election outcome, there is almost no way the federal courts can/will intervene unless the lawsuit is based on a claim that federally protected voters were specifically targeted.

The End of Freedom & Our Right to Even Vote


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Dec 5, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Naturally, I have received emails from those on the left and Elon Musk appears to be rising to that coveted spot of hatred once monopolized by Trump. Musk has outright suggested that Twitter was acting under government orders to suppress free speech, with his remarks coming hot on the heels of the release of a trove of documents that lift the lid on some of the social media platform’s censorship machinations around the 2020 presidential election.

The problem is that the LEFT never looks at anything objective. They have their agenda to rule over everyone and it will always come down to civil war, violence, and blood in the streets because they will NEVER back down – it has to be their way of no way. They do not believe in any democratic process.

So while they will dismiss such stories as conspiracy theories, in New Zealand, the government has admitted that Facebook gave them direct access to flag what they wanted to be censored. The rumor behind the curtain is that Zuckerberg has provided the same privilege to the USA so he could get the authority to move into banking.

The LEFT has been moving globally to seize power and the risk remains that their objective is precisely one of the points of the WEF’s 8 forecasts – the end of Democracy. They want to seize power and become a dictatorship with their philosophy and strip us of our right to even vote. They argue that the system is collapsing so they need to seize all power, The future they envision is very dark and cold.

In all honesty, if we can buy online securely, then why can we not vote online? My staff could have written the code to allow national voting I bet in less than 30 days. NEVER in my entire life have we ever had to wait so long to find out who won an election. In the ’60s, we knew that night. With the advancement of technology, the method of voting has been moving back in time. Even in the Roman Empire, they knew who would win an election in less than 24 hours.

All of this chaos in voting is ominous indeed. It appears to be setting up the entire affair to end elections and we must then face just a usurpation of power. The net result of these elections is to undermine the public confidence in voting anyhow. Joseph Stalin perhaps is the only one to ever tell the truth about elections.

If You Wonder What’s Wrong With Georgia – The Republican Lt Governor Appears on CNN to Tell Georgia Republicans Not to Vote for Hershel Walker


Posted originally on the CTH on December 1, 2022 | Sundance

People around the country are looking at the Georgia Senate runoff between Democrat Raphael Warnock and Republican Hershel Walker.  Lots of people wondering what is going on.  Well, last night the Republican Party of Georgia gave an excellent example of what it means to be Republican in Georgia.

Republican Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan appeared on CNN to share his opinion of Republican candidate Hershel Walker.  As Republican Duncan outlined during the interview, he stood in line for an hour, took a ballot at the polling location, and then decided he could just not vote for a Republican in Georgia, so he turned around and walked back out without voting.

Republican Geoff Duncan had no issue pushing this on CNN much to the smiles of the CNN producers, Democrats and the Warnock campaign.  This is what it means to be a Republican in Georgia.  WATCH (01:08 prompted 30 seconds)

.

The 2022 goal of the Republican Party of Georgia is in alignment with the 2022 Republican National Committee.   The goal of Mr. Duncan and others is to remove the populist movement within the RNC by destroying the Make America Great Again grassroots movement.

Was Duncan censured? No.  Was Duncan criticized by fellow Republicans? Again, no.   Was Duncan ostracized for promoting an election position against the interests of the Republican Party? Yet again, no.  Did RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel rebuke the effort to undermine Walker as carried out by Republican Geoff Duncan?  Rhetorical at this point, I know.

In the bigger or big pictures, Republican Lt Governor Geoff Duncan is doing what professional Republicans do.  He also knows there’s nothing to fear from it because he is operating on behalf of the majority Club interests who support his agenda.  However, somehow this will be President Trump’s fault.

John Fredericks On The Ground, State of Georgia Senate Ballot Race – DNC Gathering Ballots, RNC Wasting Time Losing in Court


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on November 30, 2022 | Sundance

John Fredericks appears with Steve Bannon to discuss the current state of the Georgia Senate runoff.  Fredericks is on the ground in Georgia trying to help early ballot collection on behalf of Hershel Walker and gives a brutally honest assessment. {Direct Rumble Link}

According to Fredericks, the DNC wanted to start early voting last week and the RNC wanted to fight them in court.  The DNC started collecting ballots last week on Wednesday and Saturday in key Democrat areas while the RNC led by Ronna McDaniel and her legal team including Harmeet Dhillon had no plan other than the lawsuit.

The court ruled in favor of the DNC, Ronna McDaniel and Harmeet Dhillon lost.  However, worse still the DNC wasn’t waiting on the court decision and were already assisting with early ballot collection and entry, while the RNC was doing nothing – except waiting on the court.  That gave the DNC a 200,000-ballot immediate lead.   The RNC is now traveling throughout republican areas in Georgia promoting early voting and trying to catch up.  WATCH:

John Fredericks is strongly opposed to RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel remaining in her position.

If you live in Georgia, I would love to hear your ground report on what is going on?

Hired by the RNC, Harmeet Dhillon Teams Up with the Mitch McConnell Contracted Enforcer Who Destroyed the Tea Party


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on November 29, 2022 | Sundance

Obviously, the RNC Club realizes they have a problem.  They are majority funded by major billionaire donors who are opposed to the MAGA populist movement within the group.  People are awake to the dynamic.

RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel is also facing scrutiny for her inept party efforts in previous elections. Specifically scrutinized for not having any action plan to combat ballot assembly and collection and being hopelessly outmatched by the organized DNC.

In a transparent effort at damage control, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has enlisted Harmeet Dhillon and Henry Barbour to lead an internal club effort under the auspices of performing a midterm autopsy. [Politico Article]  However, the larger picture of intent gains clarity when looking at the participants.

In the first of a series of Tweets earlier today, Harmeet Dhillon noted she had moved on from failed legal efforts in Arizona, to focus on Georgia:

Let’s be very clear about something here.  Henry Barbour is not just some political consultant to partner with.  Henry Barbour is the nephew of the notoriously corrupt former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, aka ‘Boss Hog‘.  Henry is also the attack dog hired by Mitch McConnell to use PACs to attack and destroy the Tea Party movement.

Henry Barbour was the architect of Mississippi attacks against Chris McDaniel on behalf of Mitch’s friend in the senate, Thad Cochran. {Citation}  Henry Barbour worked with Democrats in Mississippi and Georgia to construct racist attack ads against conservative Republican candidates {Citation}.

The entire Barbour clan, including Henry and Uncle Haley, have sketchy connections to various DC lobbying groups representing very dubious clients, including Amgen to help China {citation}, Qualcom to help China via Huwai {Citation} and BGR Government Affairs, a front group to help the Chinese Communist Party {Citation}.  As a bagman for corrupt political endeavors, Henry Barbour goes where the money is and attacks on behalf of his paid interests.

However, beyond the DC lobbying, Henry Barbour is a contract operative of Mitch McConnell, and as previously mentioned was instrumental in destroying the Tea Party movement in 2012 through 2014 as instructed and financed by Senate Leader McConnell.

(Clarion Ledger) – […] The Mississippi Conservatives PAC, under Barbour’s direction, funded (through illegal means) various operatives and organizations of dubious background to implement a deliberate and premeditated strategy of vicious race-baiting and fear mongering over issues of race during the runoff election between incumbent Thad Cochran and challenger Chris McDaniel. Henry Barbour deliberately chose to use well-known Democrat operatives and organizations in a character assassination scheme — the kind that the professional Left has perfected, and which Republicans abhor — in order to destroy the reputation of a loyal, fellow Republican, a current Mississippi state legislator in good standing and a Republican Party member since the age of 13, whose only offense was to announce and run for a Senate seat held by an incumbent Republican. (more)

Considering the 2022 MAGA populist movement is essentially in the same target field as the 2014 Tea Party; the billionaire donors to the RNC have admitted this goal; the open and willful alignment between Harmeet Dhillon and a character like Henry Barbour, with a known intent to maintain corporate establishment political priorities, sets off massive alarms.

That’s the initial takeaway from that first announcement by Dhillon earlier today.  More information from the Dhillon thread is below:

How could Harmeet Dhillon possibly claim representation for the grassroots (MAGA) activists, while teaming up with Henry Barbour who is the paid political operative intent on destroying those same grassroots (MAGA) activists?

It’s not an old ideology for Henry Barbour that he just dropped after the paid effort to destroy the Tea Party.  Henry Barbour carries that same anti-MAGA theme throughout all the years to today {citation}.

The alignment makes no sense at all.

No one with any goal of representing the “base voter” of the Republican Party would ever consider working with any Barbour, let alone Henry Barbour.

Questions were asked.

Then more sunlight appeared.

Harmeet Dhillon’s law firm partner is Ron Coleman who came immediately to her defense when questions started to be asked.

After a series of very obtuse statements, one of which implied that Henry Barbour was a client of the law firm, which was then denied by Coleman, then reversed to a position to present a Tweet that provides even more sunlight. {citation}

“Harmeet Dhillon and Henry Barbour are both members of the Republican National Committee. And yes, our firm represents the RNC.”

Harmeet Dhillon and Ron Coleman represent the RNC.  Now things start to take on a new dimension.

If you believe the interests of the RNC are to align and support the MAGA candidates, then this relationship would seem innocuous.  Harmeet Dhillon is under client contract with the RNC.  Dhillon works for the RNC, not the candidate.

However, if you accept that the interests of the RNC as a private club are *not* necessarily in alignment with supporting the MAGA candidates, then suddenly the weak legal defenses afforded to the grassroots candidates starts to take on a differing perspective.

With the diminished trust level of voters toward the RNC; combined with a pattern and history of weak legal defenses; then failing by intent starts to become part of the larger possibility.

Knowing that Mrs. Harmeet Dhillon is a lawyer representing the interests of Ronna McDaniel and the private RNC corporation, the lack of legal effort, vigor, and a pattern of consistent legal losses toward the MAGA Republican candidates starts to take on some clarity.

The RNC is in somewhat of the driver’s seat in this contested election dynamic.  Unless the candidate can afford on their own to fund the legal challenges to the situations they encounter, they are essentially dependent on the RNC to assist them legally.  If the RNC intentionally torpedoes the legal effort, the candidate is without a support mechanism.

Did that happen in Arizona?  Was MAGA candidate Kari Lake a victim of what Machiavelli called “lukewarm defenders?”  Has there been a seemingly transparent pattern of poor legal pushback and challenges from the RNC in recent elections?  You decide.

Regardless, Arizona has been abandoned by the RNC and, according to the priorities of Harmeet Dhillon, they have moved on to repeat the operational success in Georgia.  Perhaps in Georgia the RNC effort to support MAGA candidate Hershel Walker will be more effective than the RNC legal effort to support Kari Lake in Arizona.

Again, you decide what Georgia outcome is likely in the party interest.

For me, I find the sentiment by Steve Deace to be most in line with historic reference. “The GOP would rather lose to Democrats than lose control of the party to its base”, after all “that’s what electable means – someone they approve of.”

Additionally, standing back and looking at the bigger picture, what does become obvious from this Dhillon-RNC attorney-client relationship is the reason why Harmeet Dhillon would be teaming up with Henry Barbour.  They have both been selected by Ronna McDaniel to head up the creation of the next phase planning for the billionaire funded RNC.

Remember, post Citizens United, the RNC doesn’t need small donor contributions to run operations.  The RNC relies on massive corporate donations to fund their priorities.  By agreement, the RNC also gets a portion of the campaign funds raised by each of the respective Republican candidates.  If you are withholding direct contributions to the RNC, it means nothing to them.  Small dollar donations are only valuable to the club insofar as they politically hide the scale of the multinational donations when reports show average contributions.

Which brings me to the final point…

Knowing that attorney Harmeet Dhillon was hired by the RNC, specifically hired by Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, when Mrs. Dhillon says she will “take views to heart” when she votes next month at the RNC winter meeting for the next chairperson, do you really think she will vote against her client?
