Biden’s Border Chaos & Total Incompetence

Armstrong Economics Blog/Gov’t Incompetence Re-Posted Apr 13, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Biden “border czar” Roberta Jacobson is stepping down amid the migrant crisis because the Democrats are just brain dead when it comes to understanding real human emotions and behavior. Declaring they would grant citizenship to all illegal aliens is a call to hurry up and get here ASAP. Then they have sent all the Cubans and Mexicans who came here legally, rushing into the Republican camp, along with those from India who all had to pass criteria to get in legally. It is a slap in their face for all the hoops they had to jump through to get in.

Since the crisis has gotten worse, Biden now is proposing to pay people in South America not to come to the United States. So will this become an annual supplement like Social Security for everyone south of the border? What about Canadians? Shouldn’t they get checks too?

This just illustrates the deep-seated hatred of capitalism that is found in the left-wing Democrats. They think everything is money. They never heard of the maxim that money cannot buy love. They have never understood the proverb that it is far better to teach a person to fish than to hand them a fish every day.

This is why the left-wing will NEVER succeed in their revolutions. They keep trying the same old theories and are incapable of understanding how humanity even functions. Moreover, they are incapable of recognizing their mistakes.

I have been instructing people on how to trade and invest for more than 40 years. It is always the same thing if we are talking about governments using theories or trading markets. Knowledge ONLY comes from recognizing a mistake and adapting until you get it right. Stupidity prevails when you refuse to admit you are wrong and seek out others to blame for your own failure. I have been trying to tell goldbugs to open their eyes and look at the patterns the markets unveil. ONLY the market is 100% never wrong.

We humans must realize that life is a journey through a maze. In Buddism, if you make it through the maze you don’t have to come back and you stay in Heaven or Nirvana. If you do not learn the lessons of life, you are sent back for another tour of duty. Some believe that this is the real definition of hell. Perhaps? But if there were a last judgment, and you were asked what you accomplished, I cannot imagine it would go very well if you started blaming everyone else for your own failures.

No matter what religion you may ascribe to, the common theme is you accept responsibility for your own actions. The left-wing never does! It is always someone else’s fault!

Laughable, Nikki Haley Says She Will Back Trump and Stand Down if He Runs for Reelection in 2024

Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 12, 2021 | Sundance | 221 Comments

Oh how this video snippet is buckets of typical Nikki Haley.  At least she confirms her intent to run for the presidency in 2024… a position she previously denied.  Alas her DeceptiCon retreads are terribly worn, yet the visible pattern they leave is unmistakable.

In this video soundbite from today [MSM Story Here] the opportunistic wind-tester known as Nikki Haley, the Mitt Romney of John McCains, says she will not run for reelection against President Trump should he decide to run.  Which is a rather remarkable statement of support for President Trump considering a few weeks ago she said:

…”“I don’t think [Trump’s] going to be in the picture,” she said, matter-of-factly. “I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far.” […] “We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”  (link)

So Haley said: “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump, and we “shouldn’t have listened to Trump”, and “we can’t ever let that happen again”…  Yet somehow, today, after all that, she now says she will support him – even so far as to eliminating her own run for office.  WATCH:

Good grief, I could not dislike this person any more than I do.   But do not allow my vitriol to cloud your own impressions.  What do you think?

I mean seriously…  Does this woman really believe the republican base voter is blind to her transparent duplicity?

At least I take solace in knowing President Trump is NOT taking her calls.

Biden Administration Withhold $150 Million of Ukraine Aid Until Ukraine Government Reform – Exact Process Democrats Impeached Trump For

Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 12, 2021 | Sundance | 142 Comments

Yes, as you read the following report from OANN, you would not be mistaken to identify the JoeBama administration is now doing exactly the same thing President Trump was accused of, wrongfully, which led to the a ridiculous impeachment effort.

Meanwhile Russian President Vladimir Putin is laughing hysterically….

OANN – Joe Biden is withholding military aid from Ukraine that had already been approved by Congress in the face of Russian military maneuvers at its borders.

Biden will reportedly provide only $125 million to Ukraine this year, although Congress has already approved a $275 million package. White House officials said $150 million of that aid will be withheld until Ukraine conducts the reforms that Biden is asking for. (read more)

Russia will likely take military action against Ukraine.  NATO will once again clucth their proverbial pearls, and, quite frankly, no-one will care.  Biden’s woke foreign policy is Obama’s intentionally weak foreign policy.  The Obama people behind JoeBama will find a way to engage in some kind of war or military action as another purposeful distraction from the domestic agenda they are carrying out.

Biden’s Gun Grab

Posted originally on APR 10, 2021 AT 11:18 AM

Shall NOT be Infringed

China Joe Biden’s pen has been busy lately. He has signed new Executive Orders that will begin to dismantle our Second Amendment.

Sleepy Joe said it himself. He’s doing it to ‘keep the American people safe.’ How will we be safer if we can’t defend ourselves? Oh, I almost forgot. Biden’s big government will do that for us. Just like Stalin and Pol Pot did when they confiscated the guns in their countries.

Socialists always want the guns first—it then makes it easier for them to take everything else. Including our very lives.

Does anyone really think such a totalitarian police state can’t happen here? It has already begun. Traitorous security arms such as the BATF or the FBI can show up at your door at 4 a.m. without a warrant and cart you away for illegally owning a gun for whatever reason determined by a capricious state. Maybe you’ll be carted away to a FEMA camp and disappear. That dark future is sure to come to patriots who don’t resist soon enough.

We must resit RIGHT NOW. Big Government doesn’t like being out-gunned. Too bad!

Biden actually said “No amendment to the Constitution is absolute.” Really, Joe? Does that include the 13th Amendment? Apparently so since he wants us all to become slaves to his big globalist government. Once our rights are removed they won’t come back without another Civil War.

Did Joe just declare one?

Don’t let a demented old fool such as Biden determine whether or not you can own a firearm. Remember, his son Hunter obtained a .38 pistol by lying on his application.

Nothing happened. Those who want to issue laws and orders to tell you what to do aren’t subject to their own dictates.

Most likely it’s Bolshevik Barack who is pulling Biden’s strings. Obama wants Joe to go after us MAGA people, whom he labeled ‘bitter clingers.”

Bitterly cling tight to your firearms. Ignore Joe’s orders of infringement.

The Flight from Urban to Suburban

Armstrong Economics Blog/ECM Re-Posted Apr 12, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Good morning Marty and team,
You’re still my first read in the mornings after many years and I can’t say that about any other blog or content creator to even take the number #2 or #3 position, well, maybe Zerohedge. Thank You!
Glad to see you referencing Cristian Westbrook …

Here in Western Colorado, things are quite a bit more normal than elsewhere from what I am seeing and hearing from travelers and through my general on-line exploits. My home is on the divide between the homesteaders world and the psychopathy in the next town over of the agenda followers and double maskers. The difference in a few miles of highway travel is stunning. Our poor county sheriff deals with both worlds and he’s more in-line with our Western Colorado beliefs. Our local cops and town officials that I have met are also sick of this and are not enforcing Governor Polis’s warped WEF ideologies.
I never travel East to buy anything any longer and support our local businesses that don’t embrace this insanity, the carnicerias and markaditos are awesome, I even trade my chickens eggs for salsa. It seems our local Mexican culture buys from US and Mexican distributors and USDA guidelines aren’t their biggest concern. Same with many local restaurants, they will buy direct from local gardeners and will barter and trade.
Many of us around here purchase 1/4 and half steer for the year, we know and purchase from local pig farmers and sheep farmers, I get raw whole milk from a local family, separate the real cream and make keifer daily and am expanding the garden this year. Thank god some people are normal, I don’t think the homesteading communities will fall without a fight, we care too much about our way of life and our neighbors.
Keep up the good fight brother!

REPLY: I am hearing that from many people especially those vacating the urban centers seeking freedom in the suburbs. The taxes are rising dramatically in cities that have locked down. YourTube is acting like the New York Times did when they were supporting Stalin and attempted to push the United States into communism. Suicides are up, mass shootings are up, all because you cannot lock down people. Many incidents now are taking place when neighbors lose it because of noise or other nonsense. Nobody is attributing these things to lockdowns. You cannot do this to people. It is mentally destabilizing. They are calling it a “slutty summer” of casual sex as COVID-19 vaccinations rise because people have been locked down and over 3 million have dropped out of colleges because of virtual classes.

SARS CoV-2 Q & A

Armstrong Economics Blog/Q&A Re-Posted Apr 12, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Do you think Gates, Biden, Fauci, etc, ever really got vaccinated?


ANSWER: Absolutely no way! The side-effects are serious and even the CDC has admitted there are more side-effects with Moderna than the other brands. Listen closely to how they qualify everything. Fauci said: “It’s very, very, very unlikely that you’re going to have an effect, 5 or 10 years down the pike.” Note he is saying “unlikely” but he then compares it to a normal vaccine. Fauci said in an interview on March 13. “The reason we say that is that we have decades of experience in the field of vaccinology and virtually all of the effects if they even occur, and they’re very rare, occur within 15 to 45 days following the dose.” There is absolutely no way any public figure took the vaccine for if they had a serious reaction, it would end the entire scheme. That was far too risky. The variants are also nullifying the vaccines because they are not traditional. The US military has even stated that social distancing, masks, and quartine failed to prevent the spread of COVID. In Michigan, 246 people who were vaccinated still got COVID and 3 even died! Now the CDC has reported that 1,637 Deaths have taken place AFTER COVID-19 Vaccinations were administered!

We cannot believe ANYTHING coming from the government at this point in time.

QUESTION: RE: Suing Universities. Are Employers subject to the same idea as universities when it comes to terms of employment (even if the employer is the Government)? If an employer wants to mandate vaccination, are they completely liable for the consequences? I know many people who are getting vaccinated because of the fear of retribution, even when an employer is saying vaccination is “voluntary”. If the employer decides to change their tune 4 months down the road, those who voluntarily “refused” the experimental treatment could be subject to job loss. So much for something being “voluntary”. Government loves us so much.
Seems like the issue is class action across all of society, not just one case at a time.


ANSWER: If they say it is “voluntary” and someone takes the vaccine out of fear they might be discriminated against, they have no case. As long as they say it is “voluntary” and then they change that to “mandatory” or they deny you advancement because you were not vaccinated, then you have a legal case against them. But if you “volunteer” for the jap, it is on you and all the effects thereafter.

QUESTION: Discrimination: First let me thank you for all you do. I am a long-time follower and reader of Armstrong Economics.
You wrote today an article about discrimination and how it is illegal to discriminate against non-vaccinated people.
Here is what I do not understand is how people cannot see that a heavy graduated and progressive income tax is not illegal because it specifically discriminates against the wage earner.
How can government do this and no one says a word like it is okay to confiscate your earnings before you even receive them. I can think of no act that is more illegal and discriminatory than the third plank of the communist manifesto: A heavy graduated and progressive income tax.

P.S. We met briefly at the 2017 WEC.

ANSWER: Nobody has EVER challenged the income tax on the basis of discrimination. I would love to see such a case. However, keep in mind, that anyone who brings a case on that issue will be targeted and harassed by every agency the government can unleash. Back following the 1987 Crash, there was a movement in Congress to merge the CFTC and the SEC. At the time, the CFTC asked me if I would testify on their behalf because we had forecast the 1987 Crash and identified the cause being the G5. My lawyers were about to jump out the window. They begged me NOT to testify for every other agency would retaliate against me if I jumped into that mix. If you dare challenge a government agency, they retaliate viciously against you.

Even in my court case, I challenged Judge Owen for changing transcripts and altering what even took place in court. One time he erased upwards of an hour in court. because the government had to admit they were wrong and just made up stuff. They tried to deny me bail and lost claiming that I was going to flee to a mansion I had in London. I just raised my hand and asked the court if I could have that address. They immediately backed down and said they had that on “good information” when in fact I left London more than 10 years before. Nothing they ever say is true – NOTHING! When I tried to appear Judge Owen admitting changing court transcripts which is a federal crime, the court of appeals kept losing the appeal. The system is so rigged, there is no justice anymore in the United States. Si I am not hopeful that you will ever get a court to rule on the issue no different than the Supreme Court refusing to listen to any argument on the election.

Honestly, if I were President, I would close all the federal courts which are statutory. You can’t fire a judge even when he has dementia as Judge Owen in my case who would even forget who I was. You are denied Due Process of Law if the judge is biased. I could not even get a rational judge which amounts to the same thing. Good luck on ever getting a fair court or upholding the Constitution.

It is Illegal to Discriminate against Non-Vaccinated People

Armstrong Economics Blog/Rule of Law Re-Posted Apr 11, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

A lot of emails are coming in over suing universities and schools. Let me further explain, it is illegal under both federal and state laws to discriminate against an employee based on his or her medical condition with regard to employment decisions. These decisions include hiring, firing, promoting, demoting, training, and job assignments. Federal laws that protect against medical condition discrimination are the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Certainly, any company that demands an employee be vaccinated to get a job should be sued for what they are demanding is outright illegal. That same can be applied to schools.

Suing Universities & Schools

Armstrong Economics Blog/Rule of Law Re-Posted Apr 11, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

There is a class-action lawsuit against Rutgers University seeking a partial refund to tuition because they closed the campus due to COVID. This is one lawsuit that seeks to impose some damages upon the university. I have spoken to students who say their teachers changed with virtual classes and they have failed when they were honor students before. The cost of education by virtual should be minimal since they do not need an elaborate infrastructure.

However, it is still different than what I am suggesting. Mandatory vaccines impose risk and these universities are just jumping on the bandwagon in a me-too fashion without any due diligence on their part. By mandating vaccines, they should be held liable for all damages and you should be able to bring them to court for their lack of fiduciary duty to the students to verify that these vaccines pose no risk.

Moreover, any university which accepts grants from  Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation or Bloomberg should be subject to an audit to see if there is any mandate for vaccines linked to any grant. If that is true, then lawsuits against both the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as well as Bloomberg become viable.

The same is applicable to high schools, grade schools, and pre-school.

QUESTION: Greetings Martin

I hope all is well with you and your family.

I wanted to get your opinion/advice on forced vaccines for children

It appears the law is pretty clear cut with “experimental vaccines” cannot be forced by either private or public agencies.

That being said it also appears that govt will step back and let private businesses and both public and private universities mandate a vaccine to enter.

Who or what would be the best way to try and set precedent to not allow this to occur. Your gov has already come out and stated “no mandated vaccine” and yet Nova southeastern University in Florida had mandated It.

Here in New York, we have an even greater “lift”. As I have concern for my children.

Thank you


ANSWER: The way to approach this is actually simple. It is true that Congress has granted total immunity to the drug companies so they really could care less if the impact of these drugs in altering your DNA is actually passed on to future children with unknown consequences.

We need a lawyer to file a suit against any school that has mandated vaccines where a student has had an adverse reaction, and since these vaccines are experimental and have NOT been given actual approval by the FDA, then we need a case to present to go after any school who would NOT have immunity and bring a suit for the damages involved. Moreover, you can bring a suit and compel them to PROVE that the future risks to humanity do not exist. This is the ONLY way to attack this problem. Someone has to do this ASAP. I would be glad to help any lawyer willing to take this on.
