We have Enemies Within Our Own Governments Seeking War & Agenda 2030


Armstrong Economics Blog/International News Re-Posted May 2, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

There is a discussion now to ban Russia from the G20 meeting. Whatever can be done to create World War III is in full motion. Meanwhile, Biden wants to not just seize the private property of Russian individuals like yachts, homes, and anything else he can just seize, he wants to sell off the assets he has stolen from private individuals setting a precedent following the actions of Iran when they seized all assets of foreigners. Biden is completely destroying the world economy and burning down the very foundation of international law. This is destroying global investment for this action by the United States is not only unprecedented in the history of civilization, but it will send a warning signal to even the Chinese – sell everything and get out before Biden robs you blind.

Then the British Defense Secretary said that he would not be “surprised” if Putin used the May 9 celebrations in Russia, which mark the day the Soviet Union defeated Nazi Germany, to “mobilize the Russian people en masse” against the West. It is just unimaginable how these leaders are doing EVERYTHING they can possibly do to create World War III. In all honesty, if the shoe was on the other foot, you would launch a first strike and take out all the capital cities in a matter of minutes.

There is no way to EVER return to normal! Biden appears to be following the Agenda 2030 of Klaus Schwab. There are no peacemakers here. This appears to be a strategic maneuver to make the United Nations emerge as the great peacemaker and in the process, fulfill the idea of handing all sovereignty to the United Nations and a one-world government. It has been alleged that Soros is funding migrants to invade the United States and the Democrats will suddenly grant them all citizenship and fill out the mail-in votes for them since they are unfamiliar with the fine print of why they are allowed in during a period of rising food shortages to make it worse for real Americans.

This is now about raw power – and the Agenda 2030 is in full swing. These people will reduce the world population, but they will be using war to clean house.

Strategically, the people behind Putin would love to see him nuke Kyiv at this point as a warning to the West – is this what you really want? Putin is far more cautious than the people behind him just as we have reckless people writing the scripts for Biden. It is one thing to study how society functions, it is another when these people want to play God. I would not live near any of the capitals nor in Geneva. These people will fail. They do not understand what they are unleashing.

Never since World War II have we ever seen such reckless people in power. Every American President since FDR has strived for world peace. Today, all we have is total insanity. This is DELIBERATE – it cannot possibly be because of stupidity. The military swore an oath to defend the country against both foreign and domestic enemies. I think we have people who have seized control of governments worldwide who are both domestic and foreign.

The Oath of Enlistment (for enlisted):

“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

When Nero (54-68AD) died, Rome fell into another civil war. Of the four main generals to issue coins declaring themselves to be Emperor, history warns that the military could split and we will find those supporting the LEFT and RIGHT actually fight for power. Those behind the Biden Administration are completely tearing the country in two and the division that they have created will never be smoothed over.

Even when Commodus was assassinated leaving no heir, once again we see the Roman Empire divide and the military choosing sides. Once more, there were four generals moving for power.

Over the course of the next 10 years into 2032, we will see the United States split. There will emerge a division in the military once they come to actually see that this is no conspiracy theory by Agenda 2030 is in full swing. Even in Canada, Trudeau has openly confirmed that he has committed Canada to Agenda 2030. Of course, he is a Schwab indoctrinated Young Global Leader.

Suspect Identified in NYC Mass Shooting, Manhunt Underway for 62-Year-Old Frank R James


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on April 12, 2022 | Sundance

Police have identified suspect Frank R James (62) as the man who opened fire on a Brooklyn subway train during the early morning rush Tuesday, injuring at least 29 people. According to authorities, ten people were shot when James set off a smoke grenade and opened fire in a subway car.

New York – A 62-year-old man who made bizarre threatening rants on YouTube has been identified as a person of interest in the savage Brooklyn subway attack that injured at least 29 people Tuesday morning, officials said.

Frank James — who warned last month that he was “entering the danger zone” — rented a U-Haul van tied to the N train attack in Sunset Park and is being sought for questioning, police said at an evening briefing.

“Mr. Mayor, I’m a victim of your mental health program,” James said in one lengthy video.

“I’m 63 now full of hate, full of anger, and full of bitterness.” James said he had a diagnosed mental illness and railed against what he called the “horror show” of the city’s mental health services. “What’s going on in that place is violence,” he said about a facility he claimed to receive care from.

During an evening press briefing (video below), NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said among the items recovered by cops at the scene were a 9 mm handgun, a hatchet, gasoline and “consumer-grade fireworks.”

Prime Minister Who Banned Political Protest and Arrests Opposition, Decries the Recent Rise in Authoritarianism

When voices ask why it is important to keep reminding people of the events over the past two years surrounding COVID-19 and the western government response, the short answer is ‘THIS IS WHY’…. {Direct Rumble Link Here}

Watch as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau decries the “recent rise in authoritarianism” and then denounces the subsequent “populism” that surfaces as an exact consequence of the government going too far.  Trudeau stands there explaining why it is necessary to support Ukraine, having exited his echo-chamber, and pretends there is no comparison between western government authoritarianism and that of Vladimir Putin who he decries. WATCH: 

It really is critical for this moment of profound inflection in our history, to look at these statements and remember what they have done.

Those words from Justin Trudeau are from the same prime minister who locked down his citizens, forbid travel, mandated forced medical procedures, refused to allow transit without government approved certificates of vaccine compliance, arrested the non-compliant, and instituted unilateral rules and regulations without citizen feedback or support. Then he banned political protest against his mandates, invoked emergency war powers to target his own citizens, arrested protest groups and then confiscated the bank accounts of his political opposition.

CTH will never let this go.  CTH will never forget.  CTH will never stop reminding of the well documented actions by national, regional and local officials, including the neighborhood cops.  We will never forget.  There needs to be a reckoning.

The professional political leftists are starting to rebrand themselves as having fallen victim to the “bureaucracy of COVID”, and according to those high-minded people who think very highly of themselves, we are supposed to embrace this new enlightenment from the same people who were demanding our acquiescence to their dictates.

It’s not just Trudeau, almost all western government leaders are now trying to pretend they did not grab unilateral and autocratic powers against their own citizens.  They are pointing toward the splinter in the eye of Russian President Putin, while thinking, believing, we do not see the plank in the eye of the western rulers.  Quite remarkable.

We are expected to appreciate the same people who demanded our acquiescence to every policy that was created by their ridiculous fear, simply because they now admit ‘oops, my bad‘?  Sorry, not happening.

For two years they shoved their intolerant fingers in our faces, destroyed lives and livelihoods, made ridiculous demands in order to sustain their own fear, threatened our children, destroyed the economy, used COVID as an excuse to destroy families and steal an election, attempted to force us to kneel at the altar of their mask wearing and never-ending vaccine crap… and we’re just supposed to what, forgive them?

Fat chance.

We do not stand alone.  That sound you heard was millions of our brothers and sisters locking the door, turning around to face them, and now the reckoning is about to begin.

We need to see these people destroyed.

The vulgar lies and verbal filth have been extreme for two years as these ideological parasites utilized their power, microphones and stenographers typeset in a brutal attempt to tear down our nation.   We have all been witness.

Anyone trying to convince us this assembly of our union is not tenuous might want to revisit their proximity to reason, because they’re not just out of the city – they’re also out of the same state the ballpark is located in.

David Mamet had a famous saying, I repeat it often because it helps people break the cycle of abuse.   Essentially: …‘In order for democrats, liberals, progressives et al to continue their illogical belief systems, they have to pretend not to know a lot of things’

By pretending ‘not to know’, the professional left carries no guilt, no actual connection to conscience.  Denial of truth allows easier trespass, and that is exactly what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is attempting in that soundbite.

This hate-filled leftist ideology relies on our willingness to reconcile their presentations and grant benefit within their seeds of doubt.

It is time for ‘cold anger‘ to turn hot.

Sorry, forgiveness is for the next generation…. 

We need to destroy those who carried out this abuse.

Our parents were forced to die alone in isolation while we were forbidden from holding their hand or being with them.  Thousands never had the opportunity to say goodbye.

We know exactly what the covenant of marriage is all about, and it has nothing to do with being forced to stand outside hospitals, screaming in unbearable choking anguish, while our wives and husbands took their last breaths…. ALONE!

You want forgiveness for that?

I do not even remotely possess that capacity.  I seek vengeance.

I refuse to give any “coming to the right side” credit to the vile, intolerant, hate-filled and insane leftists who demanded all the totalitarian bulls**t they now pretend was not futile nonsense.  Trudeau, Macron, Ardern, Morrison and yes, Biden et al, should be shunned, mocked and cast into the pit of irrelevance.

The high-minded, reach-across-the-aisle Republican crew can continue bleating philosophically about how we must grow our ranks by accepting the newly found recalcitrance of those who have carried out this nonsense.  However, this constant granting of benefit to those who abuse us is the epitome of battered conservative syndrome.

Professional apologists for the right wing of the UniParty can keep trying to make the vulture a better sandwich in the hopes that eventually it will stop abusing us.  Meanwhile, prudent people, those slow to anger but resolute upon arrival, accept the leftists and Democrats for who they are, toxic abusers intent on destroying the liberty and freedom the aisle-reachers claim to cherish.

The professional political left would like nothing more than their victims to be comfortable forgiving them for their openly hostile attacks. Within that dynamic, the abuser is free to repeat the cycle, and make no mistake – they will repeat the cycle, eventually.

Actions have consequences.  We are not fast to the sentiment of hate; we know the damage that sensibility can create within oneself.  However, eventually, reluctantly, decisions are reached.

Those who perpetrated these two years of hell need to be held to account, and unfortunately, this type of accountability is so severe in consequence there can be no quarter provided or terms which might provide even the most remote possibility of a reoccurrence.

It is uncomfortable to accept that our response needs to be of such severity that our children will be witness to a visible anger they did not know their parents were capable of.  But witness they must if we are to ensure these vile and intolerant leftist creatures are destroyed forever.

I would rather provide the opportunity for my children to forgive me, than to see them forever living in a hopeless land of totalitarianism where freedom and liberty have been dispatched from their lives.  At least in the former their choice is possible.

The professional political left must be destroyed with extreme prejudice.

Americans are still tolerant and patient people, the most compassionate and generous people in the history of all mankind, but we are also very purposeful.  They could have stopped with us, but they did not.  Instead, they came for our children.

When pushed far enough, hard decisions are reached…

And they have pushed us much further than simply ‘far enough‘.

Why Zelensky is a Neo-Nazi & a Jewish FRAUD


Armstrong Economics Blog/Ukraine Re-Posted Apr 11, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

There have been some people who assumed that Zelensky is Jewish and therefore he cannot possibly be a Neo-Nazi. Many in Israel are deeply disturbed by his claims to be Jewish when he married a non-Jew and his children are baptized in the Russian Orthodox Church he wants now banned. Zelensky before the war would not comment about being Jewish for he was certainly not a practicing Jew. He would not comment on being a Jew before his election.

Many are comparing Zelensky to George Soros who is also a non-practicing Jew who even helped the Nazis seize Jews, send them to the death camps, and confiscated their property. He also admitted he did not believe in God. Soros has been behind funding Zelensky who played a TV role of a comedian becoming president and they put money behind him to turn that role into reality. Those who think Zelensky cannot possibly be a Neo-Nazi fail to look at the facts and assume the Nazis were only exterminating Jews.

Since the war, Zelensky has been playing the Jewish card to get money from Israel and to try to pretend he is not a Neo-Nazi which means a “new” version of Nazism that believes still in ethnic cleansing, but their targets are Russians, not Jews. When it comes to the total number of deaths one person is responsible for, Hitler actually comes third after Stalin and Mao, but if we include revolutions, then Karl Marx is responsible for over 200 million. This seems to be the goal of the World Economic Forum to rise to the top of the list to also reduce the population so Bill Gates can sleep at night.

The Jewish community of Mariupol in Ukraine dates to the mid-19th century. The roughly 10,000 Jews were living in the city in 1941 and were nearly exterminated by the Ukrainian Nazis. Many of the Ukrainian Jews who did not move to Israel, moved to the Donbas where Russians were never part of the Holocaust. Zelensky’s civil war against the Donbas has led to at least 1.4 million Donbas residents being displaced, and at least 75,000 fled to Russia (2019-05-UNHCR-UKRAINE-Operational-Update-FINAL). Zelensky will say anything for money. He addressed the Israeli government and pretended that Ukraine is fighting for its life comparing it to the Holocaust. Many have found this to be a real disgrace.

First of all, making such a statement that Zelensky cannot be a Neo-Nazi demonstrates that they really have listened only to the propaganda about Hitler and the Jews. Hitler was engaged in eugenics and that was NOT confined to the Jews. While the overwhelming account of the Nazis was their extermination of the Jews, they were not the only people targeted. The German Nazis also engaged in the genocide of European Roma (Gypsies). He also dragged invalid World War I soldiers from their beds and exterminated them for they were a burden on the state to support.

The Ukrainian Nazis were on board with the German Nazis and were also engaged in this ethnic cleansing but they targeted Jews, Polish, and Russians. I strongly urge you to watch Oliver Stone’s documentary Ukraine on Fire which covers the Ukrainian Nazi movement. The US never prosecuted the Ukrainian Nazis for the slaughter of countless Jews, Polish, and Russians because they were also killing Russians. Hence, in the old story, their enemy is my friend. Only the Germans were prosecuted for their acts against the Jews at Nuremberg – no Ukrainians.

The Bottomline is that I believe Zelensky is a FRAUD and rejected being a Jew but uses that for-profit now. Zelensky is playing the Jewish card for the money and to pretend he is somehow not a Neo-Nazi yet today the Ukrainian Neo-Nazis are not about killing Jews – only Russians and if they happen to be Jewish that is no exception.  In 1959 Ukraine had 840,000 Jews, a decrease of almost 70% from 1941 totals (within Ukraine’s current borders). Post-1991 and the collapse of the Soviet Union, the majority of the Jews who remained in Ukraine in 1989 left the country migrating to Israel but Zelensky abandoned Judaism and remained. Antisemitic graffiti and violence against Jews had remained a problem in Ukraine. It is no wonder why he abandoned being a Jew, married a non-Jew, and baptized his children. Now he is a Jew to the pretend he is not a Neo-Nazi out to hate Russians?


Jesse Edberg in an article titled ‘Zelensky is Not a Jewish Hero’ in the Times of Israel wrote:

It seems like Jewish organizations cannot bend over backward fast enough to praise Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who happens to be Jewish, as the Jewish hero of our time. While there is surely something admirable in leading a country through a staling invasion by an economic third-world country, I don’t see Zelenskyy as this generation’s Jewish hero, or any Jewish hero at all.

I don’t see the Jewish heroism in serving a foreign power and foreign interests. I don’t see the Jewish heroism in intermarrying. I don’t see the Jewish heroism in Baptizing one’s children. I don’t see the Jewish heroism in consistently voting against Israel in openly antisemitic, targeted UN resolutions. I don’t see the Jewish heroism in allyship with neo-Nazis. I don’t see the Jewish heroism in Holocaust trivialization, distortion, and denial.

Yes, Volodymyr Zelenskyy does not behave in the way one would expect a Jewish hero to behave. He married a non-Jewish woman named Olena in 2003 and Baptized their children in a Russian Orthodox Church. He openly celebrates such holidays as “the Day of Christianization of Kievan Rus-Ukraine,” a holiday marking the establishment of Christianity as the official region of Kievan Rus in 987, and, by all accounts, religiously identifies as a Christian, not a Jew.

Since taking office in 2019, Zelenskyy has maintained a firm anti-Israel stance, specifically on the UN floor. In 2020 alone, Ukraine voted for several UNRWA-affirming UN resolutions, voted in favor of condemning Israeli “occupation” of Judea and Samaria, Israeli “occupation” of Jerusalem, and Israeli “occupation” of “the occupied Syrian Golan.” For the resolution to launch a formal UN investigation into suggested Israeli “human rights abuses,” suggesting Israel as an apartheid, perhaps even a genocidal power, Zelenskyy’s Ukraine was kind enough to abstain.

The way Zelenskyy entered the office is equally disqualifying towards his proposed status as a Jewish hero. In Ukraine, a country rife with antisemitism historically and today, Zelenskyy needed all the help he could get to get elected. He got this help largely from Ukrainian neo-Nazis and their allies, like political kingmaker Arsten Avakov, willing to compromise to present a united front against Russia. Even today, Zelenskyy continues to pay homage to his coalition, donning the Nazi Iron Cross in interviews and speeches and praise of Ukrainian Nazi and Holocaust collaborator Stepan Bandera.

California Republicans Aim to Make Theft Illegal


Armstrong Economics Blog/Crime Re-Posted Apr 11, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

In 2014, California basically decriminalized theft by permitting shoplifters to take what they please, as long as it was under $950. Prop 47, the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act, emboldened criminals to do as they please with no repercussions as they cannot be prosecuted for a felony charge. California does not aggregate robberies, so a criminal could target a store multiple times per week with limited repercussions as long as each robbery yielded under $950.

Republican lawmakers have introduced AB 1599 which would repeal most of Prop 47 and “make crime illegal again.” Republican Assembly member Kevin Kiley, an author of AB 1599, said, “[Prop 47] has essentially legalized theft and open drug use in California, culminating in these unbelievable smash-and-grab robberies.”

Smash and grab robberies have become an organized crime by low-level criminals. “You have people that will go into department stores and they’ll actually have a calculator on them,” Kiley said. “They’ll add up the value of what they’re stealing because they know as long as it’s under $950, they might as well wave at the security camera on the way out. They know there’s going to be no consequence for that.”

Rachel Michelin, president and CEO of California Retailers Association (CRA), noted that San Francisco and Oakland alone have lost $3.6 billion annually to organized retail crime. The National Retail Federation places estimates losses from organized crime at around 0.07% of total sales and believes the CRA is overestimating. Regardless, this is a preventable loss. Governor Gavin Newsom would need to approve of the measure, but has been consistent on his light on crime stance. Newsom has ignored pleas to crackdown on shoplifting, and simply told struggling store owners to use other existing laws to prosecute thieves. Independent store owners would be wise to leave California as the laws in place only protect criminals who have abused Prop 47.

CEO Devin Nunes Provides an Update on Truth Social Media Platform – Web Based Access Likely in Next Few Weeks


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on April 8, 2022

During an interview with One America News {SEE HERE}, and another with The Washington Times {SEE HERE}, CEO Devin Nunes discussed the future of the social media platform Truth Social.

According to Mr. Nunes’ interview with the Washington Times, “Bottom line is it’s the fastest-growing social media company in history,” he said.  Also telling OAN and the Washington Times that a web-based version of the platform is likely to launch in the next several weeks which will allow all users to join.

Currently, the platform is exclusive to Apple users via an app access to create accounts and engage with the platform.  An Android version of the same app is anticipated soon.  Using the mobile platforms for user engagement, the company does not currently need extensive proprietary server hosting capacity.  However, to build out the web-based platform the data demand will require a significant expansion of server capacity.

It appears, from the interviews, that launching a web-based version of Truth Social [TruthSocial.com] will be coming in the next several weeks. As noted by the Times, “Truth Social’s critical startup move is to insulate the platform from Big Tech by using friendly servers that will keep it online. That web access to sign up on TruthSocial.com should happen in weeks; “Because we’re building this from scratch without using any of the tech tyrants, anyone who can cancel us, we have to go methodically, step by step, to ensure both quality and reliability,” Mr. Nunes says.

Washington Times Interview Here

Once they launch the web-based version of the platform, they are quickly going to have to figure out how to generate revenue.   Data service capacity and performance are very expensive.  That’s the reason why Twitter never included an edit feature before.

Each individual user engagement generates what’s known as “an ajax call”- a request to the server base.  Hitting a like button is an ajax call.  The reason the features cost so much money is the exponential scale of users on the platform.   If 1 million users are on the service when you hit a “like” button, the call and return from the server bank does not only need to show you the result, it also needs to show every other user the result.  With 1 million users, that translates to 1 million ajax call returns.

Facebook likely has a warehouse sized server bank just to handle the “like feature” all by itself.  Now, imagine the scale of server expansion needed to deliver an edited comment response to all simultaneous users on Twitter.  That’s why social media platforms are not profitable, they are still exhaustively expensive for data processing (functions per millisecond) and data capacity (simultaneous registered users).

Trust me, CTH is very well aware of how much these things cost.  I can only imagine the burn rate of cash Truth Social will incur as soon as everyone can gain access.  Their server banks will need to expand in scale and speed, likely to end up filling buildings the size of airports with hardware.  That doesn’t count the back-up systems.

People who want alternative free speech platforms, and yet simultaneously criticize the time it takes to get these systems up and running, most certainly do not understand the scale of the technical challenges and issues.   I can foresee Truth Social needing their own independent advertising platform also, which will essentially be like adding a Madison avenue executive set of offices to the organization.

They are going to need revenue that is not subject to the whims of other third-party payment processors and develop advertising systems outside the behemoth overlords at Google.  These are not easy challenges to overcome.

There Is Something Very Troublesome About the Western Govt, Post-COVID, Rules-Based Order


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on April 7, 2022 | Sundance 

While the western media quickly jumped from the COVID crisis to the Ukraine crisis, in the background of current events there is a lot of activity amid western government that does not look very democratic.

The word ‘autocracy‘, with all its variants, has been used a lot frequently by western government politicians as they attack the ideology of Russia, China and essentially every national leader who does not join their “rules-based order” club.  There is so much linguistic repetition from the same western leadership, it’s impossible not to see this autocracy narrative as some form of talking point that stemmed from some G7 or NATO collaboration meeting.

It does not seem coincidental the new catch phrases of “autocracy” vs “rules-based order” surfaced at the tail end of the COVID crisis, when Build Back Better shifted from a talking point into an actual set of western legislative constructs  perhaps intended to codify the emergency powers those same officials deployed.

What kind of democracy, or rules-based order mindset, was the European Commission carrying when they decried the overwhelming national election in Hungary?  Surely if the EU wanted to celebrate democracy, they would cheer for the high voter turnout that reelected Prime Minister Viktor Orban, yet they did exactly the opposite.  Apparently, some democracies are more valued than others.

At the same time the EU is clutching pearls over the results in Hungary, another western ally, Canada, is codifying the government’s emergency act power to seize property without due process.  As we are directed to be distracted by everything Zelenskyy, it might be worth noting that Ontario Bill 100 is about to permanently change the rules of permitted political protest. You can read about Bill 100 here and watch the economic debate here.

Essentially, Bill 100 gives the Canadian government the power to seize your home, finances, bank accounts and assets if you take part in any form of protest that would create economic harm to any loosely defined entity.  Protest at the border, lose your house; at least that’s the threat they are about to make into a law.

It seems rather incredulous to me that securing a corporate financial interest would override the concerning possibility of forever losing liberty and freedom for the individual citizen. However, in this new post-COVID ‘rules-based order’, that’s the official justification from the Canadian government.  Slippery slope and all that accepted, this Ontario Bill 100 is a few slides beyond the slippery.

Similar actions are taking place in New Zealand and Australia, where codifying the emergency powers of public health officials post-COVID rules, is at the forefront of their legislative and constitutional reform efforts.

Creating new era ‘rules-based democracy’ stuff is filling up the business end of western government attention in Europe, North American and the land down under.

But it’s not just Europe, Canada, New Zealand and Australia doing this.  In the United States we have a combination of new restrictions on liberty and freedom around emergency health issues in combination with J6 “threat to democracy” outcomes being created.  The J6 committee is looking at Trump supporters the way the EU commission is looking at Hungarian citizens.

Add it all up, and this new version of western democracy doesn’t look like it is based on the same principles the older version, the non-rules-based version, was using.

These new “rules of democracy” are also being overlaid by new rules for discussing democracy as found in the guidelines from the tech overlords.

Google just recently announced, in the era post-COVID, they will no longer tolerate content that “makes claims that are demonstrably false and could significantly undermine participation or trust in an electoral or democratic process.

So, if you are to speak against the new “rules of democracy”, or the legislation that is going through the “democratic process” in the EU, NZ, AU, Canada or the United States, you can be targeted by the online Google wrong-think police.  Isn’t that convenient considering the effort to codify the totalitarian tendencies of the new “western democracies.”

If you speak against the newer version of the ‘rules-based order‘, the leaders of western democracies will enjoy protection from the internet police.  A rebellious sort, as defined by a person who still thinks independently, might say that sounds almost autocratic or something.

There was always a concern that any political leader who granted themselves extreme powers, under the pretense of the pandemic threat, would never want to relinquish that scale of control over their citizens.  Indeed, it can be argued we are seeing those concerns come to fruition with supportive action from ruling elites in the various parliamentary and congressional offices.

A wise fellow of steward-minded disposition stated today that if U.S. government officials were genuinely concerned about the welfare of Americans, they would immediately be holding legislative sessions to ramp up energy production, cut through regulatory hurdles, lower gasoline prices, seal our borders and prepare our national food stocks for a concerning global food shortage.

Perhaps, just perhaps, if a legislative body was truly representative of the citizens, they would be using a few billion taxpayer dollars to purchase or offset fertilizer costs, help farmers with diesel fuel prices and work earnestly to insure full harvests this year.

Alas, the only nation worthy of such financial consideration is a tenuously manipulated -by them- country called Ukraine.

These new western democracy rules certainly appear to be rules of priority for the few, and not rules that would be a priority for the many.   Perhaps that’s the whole point.  Maybe that’s the bigger picture.

As it appears by action and consequence, this new western, post-COVID, ‘rules-based order’ is focused exclusively on providing benefit for the self-described elites.

I wonder what will happen if the many just don’t comply?…

… Or have the autocrats thought about that with the open border rules coming May 23rd?

The Reedy Creek Improvement District


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politically Correct Re-Posted Apr 4, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Are you familiar with the Reedy Creek Improvement District? Perhaps you have heard of Disney. A 1967 piece of legislation permitted Disney to operate independently from the government. That’s right – Congress awarded Disney with special privileges to operate above the law:

 “The district encompasses approximately 25,000 acres in both Orange and Osceola counties, servicing 19 landowners, including Walt Disney Co. and its wholly-owned affiliates. RCID operates in accordance with its Charter and Chapter 189, Florida Statutes, The Uniform Special Districts Accountability Act.”

Their special privileges have come under scrutiny in recent years as Disney dealt with the coronavirus separately from the state of Florida. However, the company is now intent on preserving the woke agenda and defying state law by acting as a moral guardian. Former Disney CEO Bob Iger said he plans to continue fighting Governor DeSantis on the Parental Rights in Education bill. “It’s about right and wrong,” Iger told reporters at CNN while denying that his opposition had any political backing.

Their woke message bit them at their last shareholder meeting where CEO Bob Chapek stated he would actively seek to oppose the bill. They were accused of turning a blind eye to the Uyghur camps in China. “Disney executives say they will not release any new films in Russia due to Vladimir Putin’s aggression against Ukraine. Since when do ESG principles mean you get to support genocidal regimes in Asia, but you must oppose colonial warmongering in Europe?” one shareholder questioned. In fact, a third of shareholders are now requesting that Disney take action against China despite profits.

Why is a company becoming entrenched in a state bill surrounding teaching children about sexuality? How will this bode for shareholders? Interestingly, Socrates noted in advance that this would be a volatile week for Disney:

“The week of March 28th with the opposite trend implied thereafter into the week of April 4th which is a Directional Change.”

DeSantis is now considering repealing their ability to operate as an independent district. “Disney has alienated a lot of people now,” DeSantis said at a West Palm Beach press conference. “And so the political influence they’re used to wielding, I think has dissipated. And so the question is, why would you want to have special privileges in the law at all? And I don’t think that that we should.”

Time will tell whether Disney has sacrificed itself for the woke agenda.

WHO: COVID Vaccine Can Cause Hearing Loss


Armstrong Economics Blog/Tyranny Re-Posted Apr 4, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

The skeptics were concerned about the long-term effects of the mRNA vaccines. “Safe and effective” was the slogan promoted to the masses as the major pharmaceutical companies refused to reveal their initial studies. We know that the vaccine can cause heart inflammation (myocarditis), menstrual changes, anaphylaxis, thrombosis, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, and even death.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is reporting on a new side effect: hearing loss. The WHO has recorded 367 cases of tinnitus and 164 cases of hearing loss. The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine specifically was responsible for around 80% of reported cases, according to the WHO. Hearing loss is not currently listed as a side effect of the vaccine, and only the Janssen product has been flagged for causing tinnitus (primarily in women).

Yet, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) still asks people as young as five to take the “safe and effective” vaccine. I fear that additional ailments will present themselves as time goes on. Bottom line: these vaccines are not safe. Governments can no longer ignore this fact, and yet, they are continually forcing the masses to take countless doses of this poison.

“Trust the science!” Oh, sorry, what was that? I did not hear you.

Political Corruption – House of Cards


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Apr 3, 2022 by Martin Armstrong
