Apple VP Fired for a Joke


Blog/Politically Correct

Posted Oct 1, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Apple’s VP of procurement, Tony Blevins, was fired for the video above. If anyone is familiar with Daniel Mac, his specialty is going up to people in expensive vehicles to inquire what they do for a living. He has a large following as people are always interested to see how others afford luxurious lifestyles.

Blevins’ quote is from an older movie called “Arthur.” It was a joke. He lost his job as a result of this video. Some may find it crude or in poor taste. The woman in his car was clearly laughing. This is just another example of woke culture going too far, as everyone must be politically correct at all times, on or off the clock.

Newsom Begs Illegals and Out-of-State Citizens for Votes


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Sep 27, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

The left is so afraid of a red wave this November that they will do anything to allow illegals to vote. California’s Gavin Newsom, who admitted his party is “getting crushed,” signed into law an act that will permit illegal immigrants to obtain an official government-issued ID. “We’re a state of refuge – a majority-minority state, where 27 percent of us are immigrants,” Newsom said after signing the legislation. “That’s why I’m proud to announce the signing of today’s bills to further support our immigrant community, which makes our state stronger every single day.”

“I mean, if we are going to be realistic, they pay you to be homeless here.”

In addition to providing illegals with government IDs, Newsom is campaigning for votes in other states. His campaign has placed billboards in seven states, urging women to move to California where abortion is legal (a bit odd since women do not exist in woke America). Newsom placed billboard and newspaper ads across Texas to criticize the state’s gun laws, claiming California is so much safer. He has even run commercials in Florida to beg people to move to California.

Newsflash: people live in other states because they do not want government tyranny and sky-high taxes. Democrats love saying that “Democracy is under attack” while threatening to remove our freedoms. The exodus from California continues as civilians and businesses can no longer handle living under Newsom.

Confused Biden Conflates Wage Growth with Inflation, Claims Inflation is Having Less Money in Your Paycheck


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on September 26, 2022 | sundance 

Many people believe the people who are in charge of the economic policies destroying the middle-class have no idea how the Main Street economy actually works.  I disagree, I believe they know exactly what they are doing and why they are doing it.

From one perspective, inflation is a statistic that comes from a bureaucratic system quantifying prices.  They have no concept of how policy-driven price increases hurt consumers or working-class families.  Everything in their sphere is academic and esoteric.

However, that said, those who have designed policy know there are benefits to inflation, like lowering economic activity that supports their lowered energy production policies. Inflation also helps them pay their way out of the spending they create that drives the inflation. Make money worth less and debt is lessened, or so the theory is told.

Joe Biden made remarks today that “inflation” as he looks at it, is defined as the amount of money in a paycheck.  WATCH:

Teen Killed Over Conservative Views – Killer Released on Bail


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Sep 23, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

In Biden’s America, you can walk free after killing people who oppose your liberal political views. A 41-year-old man by the name of Shannon Joseph Brandt of North Dakota murdered an innocent 18-year-old boy over “a political argument.” The murderer recently posted $50,000 bail and was released. As a reminder, those who simply protested on January 6 remain in jail. There is a chance that Brandt will walk free after the trial, depending on the judge and jury.

The circumstances around this case are atrocious. Brandt was driving a 2003 Ford Explorer SUV while intoxicated. He exchanged words with the teenage boy before running him over with his truck and fleeing the scene. He did not even check on the boy and left him to die in an alleyway. He later called the police to explain that he had to kill the boy. Brandt claimed the teenager was part of a Republican extremist group and felt threatened because he placed a call for reinforcements. In reality, the teenage boy called his mom because he was afraid of the drunken man chasing him in his truck. That was the last phone call he ever made.

Biden himself has made countless speeches about how MAGA Republican conservatives are the ultimate threat to America and democracy in general. Trump was blamed for every politically motivated protest or arrest under his presidency. I have yet to read one article blaming Biden for instigating violence against his political opponents. Civil unrest is on the rise. The leader of the “free world” is encouraging violence, and the legal system is turning a blind eye to the sharp rise in crime across the country. Politically motivated crimes will become more commonplace as we enter the mid-term elections as Biden has clearly defined and demonized the enemy — you.

Give us Money or We Call You Racist – Byron Allen Media Group Demands $10 Billion From McDonalds


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on September 22, 2022 | Sundance

A California judge is allowing a black entertainment group led by Byron Allen to continue their lawsuit against McDonalds for not spending enough money advertising with the network.   The lawsuit alleges that McDonalds does not give enough of their advertising budget to black entertainment, therefore McDonalds is racist.

Byron Allen is suing McDonalds for $10 billion, demanding reparations from the fast-food chain for not spending enough advertising with his company.

There’s gold underneath those arches.  On its face this looks like the extortion business model of Al Sharpton dressed up in corporate media suits.  It will be interesting to watch how this unfolds.

Sept 20 (Reuters) – McDonald’s Corp has been ordered by a U.S. judge to defend against media entrepreneur Byron Allen’s $10 billion lawsuit accusing the fast-food chain of “racial stereotyping” by not advertising with Black-owned media.

In a decision on Friday, U.S. District Judge Fernando Olguin in Los Angeles said Allen could try to prove that McDonald’s violated federal and California civil rights laws by deeming his networks ineligible for the “vast majority” of its advertising dollars.

Allen accused McDonald’s of relegating his Entertainment Studios Networks Inc and Weather Group LLC, which owns the Weather Channel, to an “African American tier” with a separate ad agency and much smaller ad budget, depriving them of tens of millions of dollars of annual revenue.

While not ruling on the merits, Olguin cited allegations that Entertainment Studios had since its 2009 founding tried repeatedly and unsuccessfully to obtain a contract from McDonald’s, whose “racist” corporate culture harmed Allen.

“Taken together, and construed in the light most favorable to plaintiffs, plaintiffs have alleged sufficient facts to support an inference of intentional discrimination,” Olguin wrote.

In a statement on Tuesday, McDonald’s lawyer Loretta Lynch maintained that the Chicago-based company viewed the lawsuit as “about revenue, not race,” and believed the evidence would show there was no discrimination.

“Plaintiffs’ groundless allegations ignore both McDonald’s legitimate business reasons for not investing more on their channels and the company’s long-standing business relationships with many other diverse-owned partners,” she said. (read more)

If a black media outlet can sue a corporation for not spreading their wealth, what precedent would this set?

Interview WORLD FIRST: The Plot to Seize Russia, War Propaganda, and More


Armstrong Economics Blog/Armstrong in the Media Re-Posted Sep 22, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Listen to my latest interview with Maria from Zeee Media.

Description from Maria:

World renowned economist Martin Armstrong joins us to break the story of the several-decade long plan to seize Russia, detailing how he has obtained declassified documents from the Clinton Administration, and how he was previously targeted for possessing this knowledge – which he is finally able to release.

Martin takes us through his encounter with an alleged terrorist from 9/11 while he served in prison, who was actually a Pakistani Christian that was framed by the US Government. We also discuss world events, war propaganda, and Martin’s insight into where we are heading.

When Did Illegal Immigration Become a Republican Issue?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Sep 22, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Securing the border was previously a bipartisan issue. National security, before the age of 9/11, focused on keeping the US borders secure and free from foreign invasion. There is a record number of illegal aliens crossing the US-Mexico border daily under the current Biden Administration, which has no plans to stop this invasion. In fact, they seem to be encouraging it and reframing it as a race or humanity issue.

The video above is from former President Bill Clinton’s 1995 State of the Union speech. Preventing illegal immigrants from crossing into America was on the DNC’s radar back then. It was not considered a racist issue until recently. Clinton states that although America is a nation of immigrants, it is also a nation of laws that must be protected. Under the Biden regime, this speech would be considered extreme right-wing fascism. If I posted only the transcription of this speech, many would think these words came from Trump. For an array of reasons, Bill Clinton would not have lasted long in woke America.

There is no plan to fix the open border. DeSantis and Abbott have attempted to send immigrants to blue states where they support open borders without experiencing the consequences. DeSantis caused a mass meltdown at Martha’s Vineyard when he sent a plane of illegal immigrants there, as the voters claim to be so tolerant. Within hours, the people of Martha’s Vineyard had the National Guard ushering out the undesirables. New York, Chicago, and DC are among the many blue cities that turned away illegal immigrants despite voting favorably for open borders.

The immigration crisis amounts to at least a $20 billion annual loss. Studies show that taxpayers spend $9,232 annually to support open borders. This will have an effect on absolutely everyone, Democrat or Republican, and should not be considered a Republican issue.
