From Xi to Shining Xi

China sits back and laughs

Joe Biden may talk tough when it comes to China. He says he won’t lift President Trump’s tariffs. He probably would if he could, but there is too much bipartisan support for them amid a widening trade deficit in China’s favor. Joe will cave sooner or later and the Chinese will give nothing in return. After all, the ChiComs have goods on Biden. China no doubt extorts many US politicians. Maybe China will send bigger bribes to Joe’s son Hunter, who routinely kicks up 10 percent of the graft to the ‘big guy’ — his dad.

Joe has already helped out President Xi when it comes to Covid-19. He mandated that no government employee can call it the ‘China virus’ or the ‘WuFlu.’ Instead of pressuring China to explain how their biological weapons lab in Wuhan released the virus in the first place.

The Cheater in Chief helps China cover up the origin of the virus. China Joe would rather concentrate on mass vaccination and slave mask wearing in America. Doctor Fauci sent millions of American taxpayer dollars to the Wuhan lab. Fauci loves China for the waves of diseases they’ve caused. It keeps the money rolling in for Fauci while giving him the spotlight he craves.


Chinese-made fentanyl pours unchecked through open southern US borders.

Public schools now consider math to be ‘racist.’

The White House Resident wants God removed from government functions.

Biden wants to shut down the Fourth of July.

Joe wants our guns and our free speech turned over to a leviathan government whom he considers to be ‘We The People.’

Biden wants a vaccine passport and a weakened military that caters to mentally ill transexuals.

Joe’s New Green Deal destroys America’s energy independence that Trump helped bring about.

The Fraud in Chief uses the security agencies to attack his enemies such as Rudy Giuliani.

Joe has let violent, Marxist protestors such as the BLM and Antifa off the hook while he persecutes Trump supporters and puts them on a no-fly list.

The virus from China meant more mail-in ballots and voting irregularity, which helped Joe’s party steal the election for him.

China Joe wants to divide and weaken America while provoking a pointless war with Russia.

President Xi has a smile on his face.

Mental Health Pandemic

Armstrong Economics Blog/Corruption Re-Posted May 10, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

There is what many in psychology are calling the Shadow Pandemic. Depression among teenagers is widespread. They cannot cope with the lockdowns, and there is no consideration for their mental health coming from Fauci, no less any politician or those pulling their strings like Schwab and Gates. The Mayo Clinic has warned: “During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, you may experience anxiety, fear, frustration, sadness and loneliness — to the point that those feelings become constant and overwhelming.” These are the pressures that lead to suicide. The National Library of Medicine wrote:

“Multiple lines of evidence indicate that the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has profound psychological and social effects. The psychological sequelae of the pandemic will probably persist for months and years to come.”

This is the problem when politics gets involved with medicine because no matter the truth, the politicians cannot now admit they are at fault for adopting lockdowns. There has been a dramatic rise in the number of people contemplating suicide. Teenagers see their future gone and over 3 million have dropped out of college. Many adults have lost everything from their employment to the idea of even retiring. I have heard from people in the airline industry, banking, and hospitality. They have lost their futures. Waitresses have lost income and have been unable to resume school. The destruction unleashed by our so honorable politicians who impose restrictions to please those pulling the strings from above is not beyond belief.

These career politicians who have championed the lockdowns are engaged in more than just corruption and greed — they are engaging in the destruction of our civilization and crimes against humanity. When we have Panic Cycles in politics showing up in 2022 and 2024, we are facing a serious fight for our lives which has not appeared since the 18th century when people rose up to overthrow the monarchy. We have simply replaced the king with ministers who vote according to the highest bidder.

The Evil Rising in the World

Armsrtrong Economics Blog/Conspiracy Re-Posted May 10, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Martin,

Just by chance, I wanted to look up your small blog again “Europe is under control of world economic forum”.
Typed it in google search, your blog didn’t come up on the first 5 pages of results, and I didn’t look beyond that.
Typed it in Duck Duck Go, your blog came up in the first search result, and the next 3 search results are indirectly reposting your blog.
If you have a lawyer with some free time to file a lawsuit against Google, would be fun to poke around:)

Kind regards,


REPLY: I know. The people behind all of this are just absolutely evil. From the outset, Schwab had world leaders in his pocket pledging a Great Reset and using the virus to accomplish his goal.

Sometimes I try to Google something I wrote years ago, and Google won’t find it, whereas any other search finds it right away. I suppose that means I have made it to the top of the hit list. I do not bother writing on Facebook or posting anything on COVID on YouTube. What’s the point anymore? Freedom of speech is dead, and this is what Schwab’s World Economic Forum is pushing behind the curtain advocated by Bill Gates to silence the “crazies” with creating a digital passport to even log onto the internet.

This is all now being spun because they anticipate a major cyberattack, just like they anticipated a virus pandemic. The World Economic Forum recently ran a Livestream with Interpol, Cloudflare, and a cybersecurity firm to discuss the upcoming cyber pandemic agenda. Their forecasting ability is truly remarkable. The mask is really a symbol of silence — a gag order so to speak, since they do not protect you anyhow. This is all for control.

Clash within the Rule of Law

Armstrong Economics Blog/Corruption Re-Posted May 10, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

The Department of Justice (DOJ) this past week announced it would appeal a federal judge’s order vacating a nationwide freeze on evictions. The DOJ announcement came just hours after a federal judge in Washington, D.C., struck down the eviction moratorium that was put in place by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help those COVID prevented from working yet they had to pay rent. This problem illustrates the real crisis in economics. On the one hand, it certainly is reasonable to say that rents should be suspended if people are prevented from working by the government.

The CDC order declared that “a landlord, owner of a residential property, or other person with a legal right to pursue eviction or possessory action shall not evict any covered person.”Id/55,296The Court struck it down for a very straightforward reason. “It is the role of the political branches, and not the courts, to assess the merits of policy measures designed to combat the spread of disease, even during a global pandemic. The question for the Court is a narrow one: Does the Public Health Service Act grant the CDC the legal authority to impose a nationwide eviction moratorium? It does not.”

REGARDLESS OF THE MERITS, housing advocates and tenants rights groups may be up in arms, but the decision is correct. The CDC does not have the dictatorial power to make any such decree. If the CDC can impact the economy and suspend contracts under the pretense of a health issue, then this is a very dangerous proposition. That is like saying the Division of Motor Vehicles could claim in the name of safety everyone must be banned from driving to work. Such decrees would be beyond their authority or jurisdiction.

If the goal is that evictions should be banned, then that much come from Congress and not some agency. Additionally, you cannot suspend tenets from paying rent without suspending the landlord’s obligation to pay mortgages and property taxes. You cannot discriminate against one class for the benefit of the other and pretend this is Equal Protection under the Constitution.

The ruling, if it takes effect, would not disturb eviction freezes enacted by state and local governments, only those issued by the CDC, and the DOJ is seriously altering the Constitution to justify such power.

Corporate landlords filed more than 56,000 eviction actions since the eviction pause took effect last September, with almost half of those filed this year, according to a study by the Private Equity Stakeholder Project of seven states. Those notices, which don’t always lead to evictions. Nevertheless, NEVER in 6,000 years of recorded history has any country ever locked down its citizens and denied them the right to earn a living, which then ripples through everything. These absurd orders are unfair and highly disruptive to the economy as a whole.

I don’t know if they are corrupt, stupid or a bit of both. They seem to have handed control over to the Medical Authorities and it’s a complete mess, we will never climb out of this hole.Latest is the arrest of a Church Pastor, this is just unbelievable.

May 8th – Revolutions?

Armstrong Economics Blog/Economics Re-Posted May 8, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

There is just TOO Much going on around the world in every corner from really violent protests that appear more like revolutions to claims that a major pipeline covering 45% of the States may have been cyber ransomed. Then the EU is proposing a one-time massive property (wealth) tax which could change everything. This is just chaos and we just have to see what unfolds in the coming week. This appears to be a turning point rather than a conclusion with some single event.

Putin says Lenin Destroyed 1,000-Year-Old Russia

Armstrong Economics Blog/Russia Re-Posted May 8, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Putin reveals what he thought about Lenin’s entire Communist movement, making it clear that Lenin was not a statesman but just a Bolshevik Revolutionary.

The importance of this answer by Putin reveals how he thinks of Ukraine. Lenin tried to standardize all humans into this cookie-cutter idea and failed. Putin is revealing his disagreement with the Great Reset, which is following the same mistake of Lenin. He is far more intelligent than the Western press portrays him.

Oregon Police Officer Under Investigation For Extremist Views – Infraction, He Carried ‘Molon Labe’ Key Chain

Posted originally on the conservative tree house May 9, 2021 | Sundance | 94 Comments

The attacks against police; and the attacks against patriotism that connects the social fabric to respecting law and order; are reaching new levels.  The tools and techniques being deployed by Marxist BLM activists are increasingly infiltrating the police units.

The leftists are creating new and ridiculous definitions of what constitutes “extremism” and/or “far right” extremist expression.  This latest example is a case study in using Alinsky weaponizing methods to attack language.

OREGON -A Bend Police Department officer will be investigated for allegedly violating policy by wearing a keychain connected to a far-right group while in uniform on Saturday.

Bend Chief Mike Krantz did not identify the employee, though Cpl. Josh Spano is the officer seen in a photograph circulating on Reddit and Facebook. Attached to the front of Spano’s service vest is an item reading “molon labe” in Greek lettering, a phrase associated with the far-right Three Percenters militia.

The “molon labe” item and its letters appear to be larger than Spano’s name tag on his vest.

“I’m aware of the allegations posted around social media regarding one of our employees displaying an item that was inconsistent with our uniform, an item believed to be supportive of extremist ideologies” Krantz told The Bulletin.  (read more)

We cannot continue cowering to the ever-changing whims of the leftist movement.

Newt Gingrich is Exactly Right, Liz Cheney is Positioning to Support the Deep State With an Independent Run for Office…

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on May 9, 2021 | Sundance | 242 Comments

The former Speaker is exactly correct.  Cheney is pre-positioning herself to run against the potential for a 2024 Trump re-election bid.  The objective here is transparently obvious.  Liz Cheney is the 2024 version of former 2016 candidate Evan McMullin.   Both Cheney and McMullin come from the same origin within the intelligence apparatus.  Let me be very clear about something…. The Intelligence Community are the deep state operatives who control government.

At the 30,000 foot level, the U.S. Intelligence Community, known as the “IC” are the people and institutions behind the entire operation of the United States government.  There are no longer three branches of government.  All branches (executive, legislative and judicial) now defer to the IC.  {Go Deep Here}

The IC network, including their ability to reach into all systems, networks, institutions and agencies for surveillance, contains all of the elements of control over all other institutions.  Former CIA operative Evan McMullin, running for president in 2016, was part of this system effort.  It is now crystal clear that Liz Cheney, daughter to former Def Sec. Dick Cheney, is operating on behalf of this same system effort. THAT is the connective tissue.


Understand Modern DC HERE

The way we defeat all of the issues which we face on a daily basis is to first understand who the enemy is, what the allies can/cannot do to assist us, and what functional issues exist in the battle.

When you realize the Intelligence Community is now in total control over government; when you realize there are no checks and balances within this system; when you realize the three branches of U.S. government have been deconstructed; only then can you honestly start to formulate solutions.

One of the IC biggest weapons is also their weakness.  They operate in the shadows…. their systems rely on leverage, blackmail, and fear… they count on people not knowing how the levers are pulled.  Expose the problem to the larger American electorate and the IC is weakened.
