Eastern Europe New Political Block


Armstrong Economics Blog/European Union RePosted Mar 4, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

The Central European countries are forming a block uniting AGAINST the rise of Marxist/Communism emerging from Brussels. I have been in contact with reliable sources and I can still confirm that I do not see how Schwab and his associates will succeed. It is impossible for them to conquer the world with their leftist Great Reset. Even the proposition that you will own nothing and be happy does not seem plausible insofar as success is concerned. They are counting on allowing the borders to be flooded with people from the third world to use that to overpower the domestic citizens.

I do not see China, Russia, or Central Europe lining up to kiss the ring of Klaus Schwab. I do not care how much money Gates and Soros throw in bribes behind the curtain to support the Great Reset. They will seriously damage the economy of the West by shifting the financial capital of the world to China, but they will not conquer the world as they are the real “Dreamers” in the equation.

Trudeau Moves to Install Guaranteed Basic Income in Canada


Armstrong Economics Blog/Canada Re-Posted Mar 1, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

It is very interesting how Trudeau has called anyone who uses the term “Great Reset” is a conspiracy theorist, and he intends to just focus on helping Canadians. Those who are engaged in this Great Reset know they have the media on their side to push this Agenda 2030 forward without anyone ever having the right to vote on changing the world economy.

Nobody ever asks how if a 16-year-old get to Canada to appear in elections in Alberta or meet with Trudeau. Who paid all the expenses? To get there, the fuel consumed created CO2, and we now have these world leaders desperately trying to shut down international travel, hospitality, and the freedom to move, assemble, and speak.

I find the misinformation is coming from mainstream media and those engaged in this Great Reset. Here is the Bill introduced last week in Canada to create Basic Income which is the way to replace pensions if the government decides to default on all its debt and to provide income to people it is deliberately trying to terminate their livelihood to save the environment.

Trudeau calls it a conspiracy theory to simply say what he is really up to. These people fail to understand that CO2 is not the cause of cycles in climate. They are hurling human society toward a mass extinction by denying the population heat and food production.

We are considered the stupid Great Unwashed and as such we have no right to vote on our own future. To these people, we are simply the worker ants in their farm incapable of understanding the greater good. We have been reduced to economic slaves and people like Trudeau will put this international agenda from the World Economic Forum, and we are to just obey – democracy no longer exists.

Czechoslovakia Returning to Communism?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Socialist Re-Posted Mar 1, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

From Monday almost 30,000 police and 5,000 soldiers will be policing Czech Republic “covid” lockdown which is total home imprisonment and respirator (N95 mask) mandates. Of course, there was the Velvet Revolution which took place Nov 17, 1989 – Dec 29, 1989 as communism collapsed. The Czechoslovak Socialist Republic was the name of Czechoslovakia from 1948 to April 23, 1990, when the country was under Communist rule. It was simply a satellite state of the Soviet Union. The Communists were the big winners in the 1946 elections, taking a total of 114 seats. Hence, with a strong Communist position, the Soviet Union did not have to install its own puppets.

The Prague Spring, as it is know, was a period of political liberalization in Czechoslovakia whereby it was recognized that the economy was stagnating under Communism. This liberalization began on January 5, 1968, when reformist Alexander Dubček was elected First Secretary of the Communist Party. The liberalization continued until the Soviet Union and other members of the Warsaw Pact invaded the country to halt the reforms on August 20-21 August.

The Prague Spring reforms included a grant of additional rights to the citizens in an attempt to decentralization of the economy and democratization. Dubček granted freedoms which loosened of restrictions on the media, speech and travel. There was even the discussion of dividing the country into a federation of three republics, Bohemia, Moravia–Silesia and Slovakia. Dubček wanted to split the country into the Czech Republic and Slovak Republic. The Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia was clearly an act of deperation to maintain Communism. The fear was that allowing this reform and its success would bring down the entire Soviet Union.

Therefore, the previous cucle had begun in mid 1916. This second wave which began in 1968, came to an end ironically precisely March 24th, 2020 one day after the COVID crasg low. Once more, we see the Czech government moving to restore effectively complete authoritarian rule under the pretense of this COVID virus. The next peak in the first 8.6 year wave will align with 2024. The following was reported by a reader living there.


This is to enforce the new total lockdown rules: no social contacts permitted with anyone who doesn’t live with you (not even with close family who don’t live in your household), no movement outside your district permitted (unless for essential work that must be documented), ban on leaving home between 21:00 and 05:00, all schools, kindegardens etc closed, all shops – except supermarkets and drugstores – and services closed (incl. car repair and home repair services), respirators mandatory everywhere at all time (but in open air where there is not a high concentration of people “only” surgical masks are mandatory).

And, everyone who was in any contact (even brief) with a positively tested person must quarantine for 14 to 21 days (21 days if they live with the “positive” person) AND get a mandatory test after this period (without a negative test they can’t leave quarantine ever).

And, same in Slovakia. Mandatory respirators/N95 everywhere, total ban on leaving home between 20:00 and 05:00, and the rest of the time you can only go out with a negative test certificate (same as before, since October pretty much). All commerce and services remain closed (since early October many of them, and since early December all the rest, except supermarkets and drugstores – but supermarkets are only allowed to sell basic food products and nothing else).

Now they’re also saying they’ll close all factories and industry next.

Rome Police Defend Protesters in Solidarity


Armstrong Economics Blog/Italy Re-Posted Feb 24, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Many people have written in to say this is all too depressing. I explain that by posting what is taking place globally, you can see that RESISTANCE IS NOT FUTILE. I reported previously how the police in Naples turned and joined the protesters. Now the same is taking place in Rome. The people are starting to rise up. One reader just wrote in about Pennsylvania. Resistance is starting to appear everywhere. It is building as we move into 2022. Schwab, you better head to Mars sooner than later as you list among your 8 predictions for Agenda 2030!

There are more businesses pushing back now and not following Gov Wolf’s mandates and business guidelines. Following the 3 week shutdown that covered Christmas and New Years, when many businesses that were supposed to shutdown, did not shutdown and remained open for the duration in defiance. Now many businesses are following up with not enforcing the mask mandates, capacity restrictions, travel restrictions and other mandates, that many are just ignoring. Now there still are some true believers, but many in this area of PA are just moving on. A lot are just saying NO to the prick (Fauci and vaccines). Will be interesting to see where this all goes

Q&A


Armstrong Economics Blog/Opinion Re-Posted Feb 21, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION #1`: Marty,

At the October 2019 WEC you made some eerily prescient statements about two things, first, if the market were to make a low going into the January 2020 period, that might be the bottom; or, if a high were made then(it did), then something profound would appear to happen in the February March time period…with March being the key month…we know how things played out…

Now, for some time, you have stated something is breaking come the May time period…evening stating in the blog to watch out for May 8…not knowing what could happen and impacting so many markets and things like Gold, what is your gut telling you…is this another lockdown, a new war, a failure of the vaccines resulting in more deaths and setbacks for the entire vaccination process….or, is it something political, perhaps having to do with Biden being incapacitated and there being a need for his replacement, at least on a temporary basis, with Harris? Or…is there something happening in Europe with riots or they’re canceling their currency?

MS

ANSWER #1: I will address the May crisis that seems to be shaping up in the update for the WEC 2020 and in an overview in the Private Blog. Because we have been probably the largest institutional adviser internationally, I have always been the one they shoot the arrows at like the Long-Term Capital Management Crisis because the London FT put out our forecast that Russia would collapse. They also blamed me for the takeover boom of the ’80 because I was running around the globe showing these charts and advised many of the takeover players like Alan Bond (1938 – 2015), Lawrence James (Larry) Adler (1931-1988), Michael R. H. Holmes à Court (1937 – 1990), just to mention a few. Essentially, I taught them how to turn debt into a performing asset whereby we would borrow in one currency to buy assets in another.

I am mindful that the way people think is that someone with influence can somehow make a trend. That is just absurd. The best any such influence is with respect to volatility. I have studied markets intensely. NEVER is there any such evidence of reversing a bear or bull market BECAUSE everything is connected. Any attempt to manipulate an individual market against its trend will be met by instant arbitrage. Take the GameStop and silver calls on Reddit. In both cases our Computer was projecting a high was in the formation and silver peaked precisely on our target week for its Benchmark. That demonstrates that influence cannot alter the trend in anything! PERIOD! Nevertheless, people do not care about what is right or wrong. If they lose money, they blame someone else to pretend it was not their mistake.

QUESTION #2: Mr. Armstrong, I am a young widow with my husband having died of Covid only 6 months ago.  I lost a lot of my income when my husband passed with no life insurance because we couldn’t afford it with his health issues.  I do have a mortgage -a house with 16 acres and vehicle loan, my only debts for now, and I am able to pay bills because my younger son still lives with me and has agreed to split the bills with me where I was only charging him rent before.  He is paying a lot more now.  In any case, between the two of us we have less than $50,000 in cash, most of it being his.  We have no other investments, IRA’s, 401K’s, nothing.  That’s partly because my husband was not good with money.  In any case some of our cash is in the bank and some we keep at home.

I am very concerned about the soon collapse of the dollar and don’t want to lose what little we have.  I do receive a small veteran’s surviving spouse pay which is enough for my large house payment.  If you were me, what would you do with your finances?  Are there safer ways to reserve the money and still use it to pay bills?  If you cannot answer this question or don’t have time, will you please direct me somewhere I can get advice.  Can you direct me to a website or person.  Unfortunately, I do not have enough of an income to pay for an advisor so just asking for any advice at this time please?

Thank you,

S

ANSWER #2: I cannot recommend people to manage your money.  Far too many make decisions emotionally and therein present another variable that you can lose everything despite being correct. The dollar is NOT going to collapse. That is just nonsense. It will decline in purchasing value into 2024 and near-term you may want to wait until May/June. Additionally, by law, I am not allowed to provide personal guided advice because the government cannot distinguish between honest advice and a broker trying to sell you something.

That said, we try to keep the Private Blog entry point for the average person at just $15 a month. That way any advice is public and not “personal” so it is OK. In general, we are looking at an inflationary wave built upon shortages. So your cash will buy less into 2024. The complications will come from the Biden Administration in its desperate hunt for cash through taxation and escalating regulation. This may impact markets in the future just as their watchful eye over the gold trade has done more to keep gold in check than any manipulation conspiracy theory.

QUESTION #3: Mr. Armstrong :
I purchased the Canada 2021 report very insightful analysis you wrote it has a bit of everything which makes it didactic to read. Interesting forecast for Canada’s economy it seems a lot of challenges ahead to tell you the truth I did not know Canada is a world leader in debt maybe I am been ignorant in thinking because real state market is doing very well then that equalize into a stable healthy economy I am always confused by that also there are rumours that Trudeau will call for a spring election he seems to be certain that all the money he is been handing out to voters will pay off and he will get a majority this time will see it is true regarding of elections or not the damage to every aspect of society is already done after almost a year in continuous lockdowns.

I like what a reader wrote today (XRP&THE RISE OF BARTER)he said Martin YOU WERE BORN TO LIVE THROUGH THIS MOMENT very profound don’t you agree you are where you are because is destined to be
I can not fail to mention those naughty coins in the same post  I would have never imagined there were Roman prostitute tokens really! those Roman were quite something else
Have a nice Friday evening handsome Armstrong
G

ANSWER #3: I will put out the forecast for the Canadian election on the Private Blog. We have blocked that from being searched by Google and since we are so well read in Canada, I certainly do not want our forecast to be used by Trudeau to make a decision to call an election or not. What is most interesting is that Trudeau lost seats in 2019 as the conservatives won, but not enough to take the majority.

As far as the Roman prostitute tokens go, they are the precise example of how the private sector will move to counter-act government regulation. Put up a traffic light after a sideroad that would allow people to skirt around it, and they will circumvent the traffic light. This is just human nature whereas those in power wrongly think that they can just a law and end some practice or vice. It will never happen and 6,000 years of recorded history stands as a witness that government will fail every time. If that were not true, we would still be reading Sanskrit and speaking Babylonian.

As for being born to live through this, it certainly seems to be the case. I personally would really prefer to leave. They tortured me to try to get me to comply with their demands and I stood my ground. But in the process, I discovered something. Someone can threaten to kill you all the time. Eventually, you pass through the hole in the needle to the other side. Once you do and you surrender any fear of death, you win. You have disarmed them for they can no longer hurt you. It becomes a game.

Me Visiting the Cell where Socrates Died in Athens

There are two instances in my life that make me concede that perhaps I was “BORN TO LIVE THROUGH THIS MOMENT” for I had named my computer Socrates long before my confrontation with the enemy that control New York. I survived even an attempt on my life after being in a coma for about a week or so (I don’t remember how long) to the dismay of my honorable captors. I was always impressed with the story of Socrates and how the Oracle at Delphi had said he was the smartest man in all of Greece. He set out to prove the Oracle wrong, but provide it to be correct. In the process, the elite hated Socrates and put him on trial for offending the gods and corrupting the youth with his ideas. His statement before the court when sentenced to death is what inspired me through my ordeal.

“[T]here is great reason to hope that death is a good, for one of two things: – either death is a state of nothingness and utter unconsciousness, or, as men say, there is a change and migration of the soul from this world to another. Now if you suppose that there is no consciousness, but a sleep like the sleep of him who is undisturbed even by the sight of dreams, death will be an unspeakable gain. For if a person were to select the night in which his sleep was undisturbed even by dreams, and were to compare with this the other days and nights of his life, and then were to tell us how many days and nights he had passed in the course of his life better and more pleasantly than this one, I think that any man, I will not say a private man, but even the great king, will not find many such days or nights, when compared with the others. Now if death is like this, I say that to die is gain; for eternity is then only a single night.

But if death is the journey to another place, and there, as men say, all the dead are, what good, O my friends and judges, can be greater than this? If indeed when the pilgrim arrives in the world below, he is delivered from the professors of justice in this world, and finds the true judges who are said to give judgment there, Minos and Rhadamanthus and Aeacus and Triptolemus, and other sons of God who were righteous in their own life, that pilgrimage will be worth making. What would not a man give if he might converse with Orpheus and Musaeus and Hesiod and Homer? Nay, if this be true, let me die again and again. I, too, shall have a wonderful interest in a place where I can converse with Palamedes, and Ajax the son of Telamon, and other heroes of old, who have suffered death through an unjust judgment; and there will be no small pleasure, as I think, in comparing my own sufferings with theirs. Above all, I shall be able to continue my search into true and false knowledge; as in this world, so also in that; I shall find out who is wise, and who pretends to be wise, and is not. What would not a man give, O judges, to be able to examine the leader of the great Trojan expedition; or Odysseus or Sisyphus, or numberless others, men and women too! What infinite delight would there be in conversing with them and asking them questions! For in that world they do not put a man to death for this; certainly not. For besides being happier in that world than in this, they will be immortal, if what is said is true.”

The other strange piece of fate was the fact that I grew up at 314 South Lippincott Ave, Maple Shade, New Jersey. So I was raised in a house with the street address being Pi.

I wrote that I DID NOT want to become a lawyer because of an incident when I was in high school whereby as students we were being harassed by the police on the direction of the mayor. He did not like the kids hanging at a sub shop next to his store so he used the police for personal gain.  He directed the police to hand out parking tickets to drive us away. I went to check the law using my father’s law books on the legality of the signs. Low and behold, it required the town to place parking signs about 20 feet apart and so many feet up from the crown of the road. They did not comply. So I told everyone to sit on the hoods of their cars, we would take the tickets, I had this. When they did the same with stop signs, I rose to the cause and defended everyone in court again. I won both times and the judge admonished me and said he thought I was practicing law without a license. I responded I was not charging anyone. He came back and said he was calling my father. The town of Maple Shade had to completely redo all the signs. When I got home, the judge had indeed called my father. My father said to stop using his law books to defend my friends. From that moment on, my interest in being a lawyer was shattered. So I don’t know, perhaps there was something in the water that just made you want to stand up and fight for civil rights. Because also in another strange twist, there use to be a bar on the edge of town and that was where Martin Luther King was denied service and he said that is when he got the inspiration to lead his march.

So I do not know, but a lot of people have told me this was my destiny. Perhaps. Time will tell.

QUESTION #4: Is CDC admitting masks are ineffective if CDC is now telling us 2 masks are needed? I wish my fellow Americans would see this, if masks worked, then why the need for 2? Connect the dots people, it’s very simple math.
Uranium – global warming driven by nuclear industry, a post of yours a few years ago. Now great reset for climate change. How bullish should I be uranium miners & uranium? Might have already missed lows as there’s a Reddit sub/uraniumsqueeze and cameco 2x since Dec, but still feels like this trade has major upside if this is solution for global warming agenda?

KW

ANSWER #4: Yes, it is well known that studies from the 1918 Spanish flu demonstrated that masks did not work. The Washington Post even said that masks were useless. This is all about scare tactics for political purposes to impose the Great Reset completely altering the economy.

As for Uranium, it peaked with the ECM in 2007 on schedule, and it bottomed 8.6 years later in 2016 also on the cyclical schedule. We are showing that a quarter closing above $35 will reignite the bull market. This is most likely caused by colder weather ahead and the fact the renewable energy such as solar panels and wind turbines do not help in ice and snowstorms. When you need heat the most is when you will freeze the most.

Civil Unrest in Spain for the 5th Night


Armstrong Economics Blog/Civil Unrest Re-Posted Feb 21, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Spain has imprisoned a rapper for insulting the government in his Tweets. Barcelona ​and many ​other Catalan cities, along with Madrid have been erupting in civil unrest as people protest to demand the freedom of rapper Pablo Hasel, who the government sentenced to prison for nine months because of his tweets which were insults against the Crown and the police. These protests, which began in Barcelona against the Mossos d’Esquadra, the Catalan police force, which in turn responded with smoke bombs. These protests are reflecting the frustration over the lockdowns which have erupted into riots, fires, and even looting.

The build-up of frustration has led to civil unrest erupting on just about any excuse. This is more than just a protest over the wrongful imprisonment of  Pablo Hasel. This is simply a reflection of the totalitarian state that governments are trying to impose using this virus as the justification to hide their real agenda – the Great Reset.

Why Global Warming was a Total Farce & it’s Now Incorporated into the Great Reset


Armstrong Economics Blog/Climate Re-Posted Feb 18, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, your computer and you have been correct on everything from politics to markets and even climate. You said we would be headed back to global cooling.  Was this based on the solar waves of energy from the sun?

Thank you for the thought-provoking blog

DL

ANSWER: This is the Western Plague in research. They always seek to reduce whatever it is to a single cause and effect. I am so tired of this nonsense about CO2. Here in Flordia, we had a red tide and instantly the politicians were blaming it on farmers that certainly are not in this area. All I did was Google red tides and there it was, the first one reported was by the Spanish during the 17th century long before farmers in Florida using chemicals.

The output of energy from the Sun oscillates but that is NOT the single cause of the effect of global warming and cooling. There are other aspects that come into play such as Arctic Oscillations.

The Arctic Oscillation (AO) refers to an atmospheric circulation pattern over the mid-to-high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. The most obvious reflection of the phase of this oscillation is the north-to-south location of the storm-steering, mid-latitude jet stream. This is what impacts the “jet-stream” which they will refer to on weather reports. Thus, the AO can have a strong influence on weather and climate in major population centers in North America, Europe, and Asia, especially during winter. This is something the Climate Change people seem to be oblivious to these days.

The Weather forecasters are probably much to blame because they will refer to the Jet Stream dipping down which brings cold and ice storms to Texas for example. This will typically shut down electricity as we see all over the United States. However, what seems to NEVER be articulated is what makes the Jet Stream dip in the first place? The AO’s positive phase is characterized by lower-than-average air pressure over the Arctic paired with higher-than-average pressure over the northern Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The Jet Stream is farther north than average under these conditions, and storms can be shifted northward of their usual paths. Thus, the mid-latitudes of North America, Europe, Siberia, and East Asia generally see fewer cold air outbreaks than usual during the positive phase of the AO.

Conversely, AO’s negative phase has higher-than-average air pressure over the Arctic region and lower-than-average pressure over the northern Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The Jet Stream shifts toward the equator under these conditions, so the globe-encircling river of air is south of its average position. Consequently, locations in the mid-latitudes are more likely to experience outbreaks of frigid, polar air during winters when the AO is negative. In New England, for example, higher frequencies of coastal storms known as “Nor’easters” are linked to AO’s negative phase.

Now look closely at this chart. Note that the strong negative spikes down were going into 1970 and again in the mid-1970s. I really cannot explain why in the West science seems to be void of really comprehending that everything functions in a cycle. Because the summer in 2020 was hot, they immediately say it’s global warming and I am wrong. They shut up then when 50% of the country is freezing right now or claim this is because of CO2 with no proof at all.

During the 1970s, we had climate charlatans calling for a new ice age. Looking at this no different than any time series, the low was 1977 at -3.767 which was followed by a gradual warming trend where the high took place in 1993 at 3.495 on the AO index and the low thereafter was 2010 at -4.266. Thereafter, the AO index swung up into 2020 at 3.417 which was a retest of the 1993 high.

However, 2020 then went into a Panic Cycle and by year-end, it had closed negative extremely rapidly.  This warned that the extreme heat into 2020 would then be followed by a crash into extreme cold into 2021 no different from a market crash pattern. Cyclically looking ahead, it will be extremely cold post-2032 into 2037. If we are going to see a sharp reduction in the population at that time, it will be primarily because of the weather. We are looking at wild swings and post 2032, where we are likely to make new historic lows in this index which will be very cold temperatures. By shutting down fossil fuels, this environmentalist movement may become the primary reason for the drop in population post-2032 that our model is suggesting most likely brought on malnutrition as food shortages dominate the end of this cycle. Life expectancy is already declining and is now down 15 years from the high. This will decline further into 2024 accelerated by the lockdowns.

Here we have the front cover of Time Magazine predicting climate change back to an ice age. That was dated January 31, 1977 corresponding to the sharp spike down into a negative AO in 1977. In the April 28, 1975 edition of Newsweek, they actually proposed solutions for climate change that included outlawing internal combustion engines.

This is when Al Gore came to the rescue. Just like the poles flip on the sun every 11 years, Al Gore flipped the argument from manmade cooling to manmade warming to save the end goal — eliminating all fossil fuels regardless of the evidence. Who needs science when you can just make up the studies and cherry-pick the facts to support whatever you want.

The extreme cold also hit in 2010. I remember in New Jersey, we had not seen snow like that since I was a kid. The increase in volatility is heading into a cataclysm by 3021-2037. Indeed, 2020 closed negative warning that this winter would be a highly volatile and cold year which may even exceed 1977 or 2010 on the negative side with respect to the AO index.

We now have the World Economic Forum, Bill Gates, and Al Gore, all swearing the global warming trend from the 1977 low into the 1990s was all man-made added by soccer-moms drive the kids around in SUVs. I just cannot get over the total lack of any scientific investigation that is now being used to destroy economies and jobs because these people are total idiots when it comes to understanding weather, science, or cycles.

No worries, you will NEVER read anything about cycles in mainstream media. They will NEVER print anything along these lines because they will NOT tolerate any possible debate. The United Nations needs the climate change argument for that is the only way they can gain power. They argue that no single country can stop global warming. It will take a one-world government with mandatory compliance by member states. Yes, my bias is to freedom whereas their agenda is to suppress the world.

Then there is the complexity of the Milankovitch Cycles. The climate activists dismiss it because they argue while physical evidence shows that the variation in Earth’s climate is much more extreme than the variation in the intensity of solar radiation calculated as the Earth’s orbit evolves. If orbital forcing causes climate change, science needs to explain why the observed effect is amplified out of linear proportion to the theoretical cause. They simply do not understand the complexity and it cannot be reduced to a single cause and effect as they have done with CO2.

Still, there is other research the United Nations ignores because they are using climate change to argue for a one-world government. The real experts on the oceans and how they function were at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University. It was in 1956 when they published A theory of Ice Age by Maurice Ewing and William Donn. They were the most influential oceanographers to date, yet the Global Warming people have completely ignored their work and bastardized it for political gain. The core of what they unveiled was that if the Arctic Ocean would get warmer and the ice melted, this would signal an Ice Age, not the sinking of coastal cities. A warmer Arctic Ocean would mean that water would flow more freely between it and the Atlantic, dissipating the cold making the Atlantic colder. There is the key to an Ice Age. If all the ice melted in the Arctic Ocean leaving open water that was then warmer by mixing with the Atlantic, then a warmer Arctic Ocean surrounded by colder land around it would produce evaporation and that water would then return back to the land as snow. More snow that falls in Greenland and Northern Canada is what makes glaciers grow deeper. When the Arctic Ocean is covered in ice, then there is NO EVAPORATION and thus we do not move into an Ice Age.

We are dealing with people who think only in a single dimension and constantly try to reduce everything to a single cause and effect.  They are seriously causing the West to collapse and their theories of Climate Change are leading us into absolute disaster post-2032. They will not tolerate opposition. To further illustrate my point, Joe Biden has taken down your right to Petition the White House. The petition system has been around for many years. There were hundreds of active petitions but Biden did not want petitions filed because his Great Reset and Climate Change agenda is opposed by Republicans he refuses to answer.

Moreover, he is imposing his Build Back Better Climate Change Agenda by executive order to deny even Congress the right to debate any of these issues. Biden is taking his marching orders from the World Economic Forum and the United Nations – not the American people. This is outright tyranny and anti-Democratic no matter what side you are on. If the White House had previously gotten 100,000 signatures, the White House was supposed to give an answer.

Under his previous Obama Administration, there was the “Free Assange” petition that the Obama Administration was obligated to answer. Biden does not want to answer anything with respect to his Build Back Better or Climate Change Agenda where he is taking direction from the United Nations and the World Economic Forum. So much for We the People! Biden is doing the very same thing as Big Tech – censorship.

The Biden White House does not promote unity nor does it represent 49.6% of the population it did not win. Biden has fully embraced that Cancel Culture where someone is shutdown from social or professional circles both online and in the real world. Those who are subject to this ostracism are said to be “canceled” so Biden has canceled 49.6% of the American public. Trump’s lawyer has been canceled by the law school for representing Trump during the impeachment. Lawyers are supposed to defend even the guilty. Looks like this is one law school you better not attend!

When will these people stop with the censorship that is designed to push an agenda and why is it so important? In a free society, you debate the issues. We have turned into a tyrannical society where we are to be denied the right to think for ourselves or consider that whatever they are pushing is not compatible with our personal desires. There is just something wrong with what is going on. If someone says these are cloned aliens, they have a right to say that and the majority of people will listen and laugh. Sure, there are always a few who will believe such things. But this is what humanity is all about. We even have two primary political parties because people will have different views. This censorship is trying to impose ONE PARTY RULE and that is tyranny.

Our Legal System is Pro-Tyranny

In the Netherlands, a court in The Hague has told the Dutch government that an overnight curfew to reduce the spread of coronavirus should be lifted, ruling that it breaches the right to free movement. There are other courts striking down what many governments have done to the people, society, and the economy. In the Netherlands, the government wants to appeal that decision and maintain the curfew. Nevertheless, Prime Minister Mark Rutte has already asked the people to stay indoors, court ruling or not.

One of the reasons why I DID NOT want to become a lawyer stems from an incident when I was in high school. There was a place called the Sub Shop where the students would go for lunch and after school. It was maybe 100 years from the school. The guy who owned the shop next door never liked the kids. He ran for mayor, won, and then had a policeman stand there and hand out parking tickets or whatever he could to harass us. I went to check the law using my father’s law books. Low and behold, it required the town to place parking signs so many feet apart and so many feet up from the crown of the road. They did not comply. So I told everyone to sit on the hoods of their cars, we would take the tickets, I had this.

When we all went to court, I asked the judge if I could speak for everyone since we all had the same parking ticket. I read the law and the judge was not happy, but he had to dismiss all the tickets. Next, they tried with a stop sign. The same problem it was at best 3 feet from the crown of the road instead of being up high that you could see it even if a car was parked there. Again we all took the tickets and again I asked to speak for everyone. Once more the Judge had to dismiss all the tickets, but he then admonished me and said he thought I was practicing law without a license. I responded I was not charging anyone. He came back and he was calling my father. The town of Maple Shade had to completely redo all the signs. When I got home, the judge had indeed called my father. He said to stop using his law books to defend my friends. From that moment on, my interest in being a lawyer was shattered.

There is no real RULE OF LAW. If there was ever a place for true Artificial Intelligence it is as a judge. The RULE OF LAW should be what it says – the law. But the other disastrous problem we have with the law is total political corruption. The Texas case against the state of Pennsylvania was dismissed by the Supreme Court claiming they lacked standing and there were two dissents. That was the Chief Justice refusing to hear the case claiming they had no “standing” and therein lies the crisis. Politicians can actually pass a law that says you MUST kill your firstborn sacrifice them on the first day of the New Year to reduce the population.

Nobody has the standing to go to court to argue this is unconstitutional. The ONLY time you will have any right to make that argument is when the government seeks to enforce that law. Since I do not have a firstborn because he already died, I could never go to court to challenge that law because I am NOT being harmed.

Therein lies our problem. We live under no Rule of Law for it promotes TYRANNY. Governments can do as they like but we have to be harmed FIRST. Then it will take often years to get to court and then the court can rule in our favor as The Hague just did. That means the government can be ruthless, draconian, and outright tyrannical as they have been with this COVID. Now merge this with the problem we live in a Republic – not a Democracy. People can vote for Trudeau in Canada or Johnson in the UK only in the local community and then the party elects them to be the head of state. They then strip us of all rights, destroy the economy, and impose this Great Reset which was never presented to the people for a vote. Worse still, they keep extending their measures because they know if they told the people the truth that COVID was usurped to further climate change and the Great Reset, the people would never have voted for it once they realized how many will lose their jobs.

They get to do whatever they want. (1) there is no standing unless were are one of the ones injured, (2) it can take years to get to court to ever apply the law that is the foundation of a free society.

CONCLUSION

We live under the yoke of tyranny. There is no hope for the future until we completely overturn the system. There should be a Constitutional Court where whatever law these politicians pass must be ruled on by the court BEFORE creating any harm.

People have often asked me why I have studied law and the various legal system globally such a Britain emerged from Common Law whereas France emerged from Canon Law. In having to not only being an international hedge fund manager but also having to advise international corporations and governments, one of the most critical inputs is country risk. We must first come to grips with the politics for there everything is set in motion. You obviously would not want to have investments in a country that is left for they will be prone to simply NATIONALIZE all your investments and you lose 100% which has taken place countless times during Communist Revolutions to religious revolutions as in Iran. The politics and the Rule of Law are absolutely critical for that is the FIRST step in the decision process as to where to invest. This is why China has been moving diligently in this direction of stability for unless they do so, China would never rise from the ashes of Communism.
