Russia Gas to Europe to Stop

Armstrong Economics Blog/Energy Re-Posted Jun 16, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

The Russian EU Ambassador has informed the EU that gas will stop through Nordstream because a turbine that was needed was stuck in Canada because of the sanctions. Then the biggest gas field in Siberia is now on fire. That can also provide an excuse to reduce gas delivery to Europe. This will also add to the reduction in gas supply to Europe This is making things very interesting. If Gas bottoms next week, we could be looking at much higher volatility thereafter. For now, a June closing above 625 will keep the market in a broader-term support position but a real breakout would require a close for June above 795.

Propaganda From a Warzone

Armstrong economics Blog/War re-Posted May 5, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Politicians are using Ukraine as a photo opportunity. Would the most powerful government officials risk traveling there if Kyiv was under constant attack? Would they publicly stroll the streets in Russia’s alleged top target? Third in line to lead the US, 82-year-old Nancy Pelosi, insisted on putting a wall and armed guards around the US capitol, stating she feared for her life. She had no problem flying to what has been described as an active warzone to take pictures with Zelensky and personally deliver him billions of dollars for a war the media states he is winning. What she actually did was commit the United States to a direct war with Russia and the goal is their destruction not to defend Ukraine. They outright said before the world, that there are no peace negotiations, this is a defacto Declaration of War.

Boris Johnson also did not pass on the photo opportunity. The prime minister of the UK openly walked around Kyiv with the Ukrainian leader. Zelensky made sure to wear his military gear for the photos, although Johnson was in a suit. There were no bulletproof vests, and they did not meet in a secret location. In fact, numerous leaders of NATO nations have visited Ukraine since the war began. The presidents of Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, and Estonia all traveled by train to visit the war-torn country. Many others have visited as well and sent top delegates amid an ongoing war.

Everyone clearly knows where Zelensky is located – including the Russians. There were countless reports of Russian special forces attempting to assassinate Zelensky in the “early hours” of the war. Sources claim that was propaganda. Zelensky never went into hiding. He posts videos from his office in Kyiv and has made his location known. Yet, he claims that he and his family will be assassinated by Putin soon. He has successfully secured the public’s opinion as they see him as a brave leader who is willing to risk his life for his country. If Putin wanted to assassinate Zelensky, he would have done so already. Putin does not want a war with NATO and is moving carefully. However, the West wants war and desperately needs war as stage TWO of the Great Reset for the days of Keynesian Economics are coming to an end. The West has been borrowing relentless since World War II with no intention of paying anything back. The ECB lowered interest rates to NEGATIVE in 2014, and now the entire European pension system is bankrupt. They need this war to blame the collapse of government on Putin as well.

How Non-Career Politicians Speak

Armstrong Economics Blog/Humor Re-Posted Apr 10, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Trump spoke candidly and off-the-cuff. He never wanted to be restricted by cue cards. As Nigel Farage said, people disliked Trump’s “New York-style,” but hey, you can’t deny that the man had a sense of humor.

Oh, and by the way, Kimmel, Al Gore was the politician who claimed to create the internet.

President Trump Endorses Dr Oz in Pennsylvania Senate Race

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on April 9, 2022 | Sundance

Apparently, Pennsylvania politics is all about getting the suburban mom vote, or so the professionals in polling say.   This endorsement seems puzzling, but perhaps the Pennsylvania Treepers can clear it up.  Prior story on PA political happenings here.

I don’t want to dump on anyone, but Dr. Oz being endorsed by President Trump seems out of sync with the base.  Ultimately, it’s up to Pennsylvania Republican voters, and maybe they like this guy as the most viable candidate.  Voter registration ends May 2nd, and the Pennsylvania primary is May 17th {link} [General election Nov 8].

I am honored to receive President Trump’s full support and endorsement, and I thank him for that. President Trump knows how critical it is to change the kinds of people we send to Washington. I’m ready to bring an America First agenda to the Senate for Pennsylvania.

Not a lot of people in my random unscientific Twitter poll are in favor.

However, how many people are from Pennsylvania?

Is Biden also a War Criminal Bringing Civilization to a Complete Collapse?

Armstrong Economics Blog/Ukraine Re-Posted Apr 6, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Biden has declared that “major war crimes” are now being discovered in Ukraine as Russian forces retreat from areas around Kyiv. In a total propaganda move where he just takes whatever Zelensky says at face value who is a puppet intended to create World War III because the ability of government to continue to function under Keynesian Economics is coming to an end. On top of that, Biden is desperate to change the focus from his own corruption and that of Hunter Biden hoping to change the topic. Biden is denying any independent investigation just taking the word of Zelensky who has done NOTHING but tried to create war with Russia refusing to comply with the 1991 Belgrade Agreement of Neutrality and the Minsk Agreement which was to allow the Donbas to vote on their own independence.

Biden has set in motion World War III calling Putin a war criminal which by the same standards would have applied to every president during times of war. The US has refused to address all the claims of war crimes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Lybia, etc. The US admitted to killing civilians in Kabul in a drone attack. Who is responsible for that war crime? Under Biden’s definition, he himself is also a war criminal for Kabul. That too was a brutal, cold-blooded execution-style but the US is exempt from being tried in the ICC for the US refuses to be judged for war crimes in the Netherlands.

Biden’s rationale for ratcheting up US sanctions on Moscow now targeting Putin’s daughters is outrageous. Biden said: “Responsible nations have to come together to hold these perpetrators accountable.” Biden has further increased sanctions targeting Putin’s two adult daughters. Why are they responsible for this?

Biden has DESTROYED the world economy and abused the SWIFT system that has shown it is now not independent but just a political tool. China would be absolutely braindead at this point if it did NOT set up its alternative to SWIFT. More and more countries are starting to side with Russia. Even India has seen its action of Biden as totally reckless. Biden’s constant expanding sanctions have cut off Russia entirely just as FDR did to Japan. If history repeats, I would NOT live in Washington, LA, Chicago, or New York. They can be taken out with supersonic nukes and there is nothing Biden can do to stop it. He needs to be removed from the office. Every administration has sought world peace. Biden seeks ONLY war.

There will NEVER be a return to NORMAL and only a madman would act like Biden deliberately destroying international relations that took decades to establish. You will not cause Putin to recoil, and any regime change will only lead to people behind Putin who are FAR more Neocon than Putin.

Rome lasted for 1,000 years, but it collapsed in just 8.6 years. History is repeating. Biden has been FAR WORSE than anything I personally would have speculated. The forecasts come from Socrates, not me personally. There is NO human being who would have postulated that ANY world leader would be this outrageous. Indeed, 8.6-years from the time Biden took office will be 2029.65 (August 25th, 2029).  Just as our models are warning that the French Fifth Republic will come to an end by 2030, the same is true for most Republics that will include the United States.

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?

Bucha – the False Flag to Cross the Rubicon

Armstrong Economics Blog/Ukraine Re-Posted Apr 5, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

We are crossing the Rubicon but this time it is not to free society from a corrupt Senate, it is the Corrupt Senate determined to create a New World Order by destroying everything familiar about the society we now know. As always, it is difficult to separate truth from sheer hatred that has engulfed the world thanks to Zelensky and our insane President Biden. The DOUBLE STANDARDS are so in-your-face corrupt that it is hard to ignore comparing Vietnam & Ukraine.

A suburban avenue in Bucha became one of the first graveyards in Russia’s attempt to encircle Kyiv in the face of Zelensky’s refusal to negotiate in good faith. The Russian tanks and armored personnel carriers moved through the town of Bucha on their way to the city of Kyiv. The convoy was destroyed in one of the first of many Ukrainian ambushes that stopped the Russian advance. While Zelensky points to civilian casualties, he takes no responsibility for arming civilians and telling them to first professional Russian soldiers.

Biden on Monday called for a war crimes trial against Putin following reports of the mass killing of Ukraine civilians by Russian troops in a suburb of Kyiv. Of course, there is no proof that this is just not another false flag by Zelensky who is determined to destroy the world for make no mistake – this is the end result.

Biden yelled: “He‘s a war criminal,” when asked about the reports of Ukraine civilians being slaughtered allegedly by Russian troops in Bucha, which sits northwest of Kyiv, the Ukraine capital. Biden added: “This guy is brutal and what’s happening in Bucha is outrageous and everyone’s seen it.” Biden WANTS TO TAKE THE WORLD INTO WAR WHERE MILLIONS WILL DIE. He is pushing for war, never peace, with every breath he takes. “I think it’s a war crime,” Biden said. “He should be held accountable.”

“You may remember, I got criticized last month for calling Putin a war criminal,” Mr. Biden said. “Well, the truth of the matter is you saw what happened in Bucha. This warrants him — he is a war criminal.”

Calling Putin a war criminal is outrageous. The same standard could have been applied then to President Johnson simply be he too authorized the Vietnam War of fake news. The Mỹ Lai massacre was the mass murder of unarmed South Vietnamese civilians by United States troops in Sơn Tịnh District, South Vietnam, on March 16th, 1968 during the Vietnam War. They were UNARMED and were not ambushing Americans. Between 347 and 504 unarmed people were killed by U.S. Army soldiers.

The difference there was that the Mỹ Lai massacre victims included men, women, children, and infants. Some of the women were gang-raped and their bodies mutilated, as were female girls as young as 12. Twenty-six soldiers were charged with criminal offenses, but only Lieutenant William Calley Jr., a platoon leader in C Company, was convicted. Found guilty of murdering 22 villagers, he was originally given a life sentence but served three-and-a-half years under house arrest never went to prison, and had his sentence then commuted.

Biden wants now the US to invade Russia, capture Putin, and put him on trial in International Criminal Court which the US refuses to join so no American can ever be tried for a war crime. The list is endless for all the war crimes by the United States in Afghanistan. Iraq, Lybia, Syria, and Pakistan, but the US will NEVER allow any American to be tried for a war crime. The American press will not tell the truth about how the US exempts itself from war crime allegations and trials. This has added to the image of the United States is seen as arrogant and hypocritical.

Biden’s demands to try Putin as a war criminal is now the final straw. This means there will be NO World Peace. Biden is out to commit American genocide to commit American troops brainwashing them that they are fighting for some noble cause. This is all about destroying our world so he and Klaus can BUILD BACK BETTER and achieve their New World Order. You cannot BUILD BACK BETTER until you destroy everything first.

Was Bucha a FALSE FLAG EVENT? There is little doubt that we will NEVER know the truth because Zelensky and Biden have guaranteed that this will be the battle cry to destroy the world. It is very convenient – too convenient if you ask me. The talk behind the curtain is that Biden will require a digital ID when he implements food rationing as part of our necessary war against Putin.

Zelensky’s hatred has now set the world on its course. I warned that he would be the man to create World War III. Our computer targeted Ukraine as the spot where it would begin back in 2013. I wish these things were just my opinion for there would be a 50/50 chance I am wrong. We have crossed the Rubicon – the point of no return. Our models for the Decline and Fall of the United States we published back in 1985 was that it would begin cyclically with the 46th president. Hello – he is here!

Dr. Robert Malone v WEF

Armstrong Economics Blog/Corruption Re-Posted Apr 5, 2022 by Martin Armstrong

Dr. Robert Malone, one of the initial founders of mRNA vaccines, turned into the most prominent critic, plans to expose everyone in the World Economic Forum (WEF). “They’ve been working for 30 years to train people to be their gophers…to do their bidding…there are videos of Klaus Schwab bragging about it,” Malone stated. “All of these people who want to lock us up and disrespect us are not very smart. I mean, have you watched Trudeau?”

Malone admitted it is usually unethical to dox people online, but with “this crowd,” ousting them is the only way to beat them. So the doctor spent millions compiling a list of over 4,000 people who are working with the WEF to push forward the Great Reset.

“The good news about these characters is [that] most of them aren’t very smart… We can beat them… but first thing we’ve got to do is we’ve got to out em’… We’ve invested thousands of dollars in our team, and we have built a massive spreadsheet of over 4000 names of WEF trainees, and we’ve got their CDs. We got their jobs. We got where they are, where they come from, where they’re working now, who they used to work with… We’re about to put this up on a blockchain-protected site, so they can’t take us down. And we’re gonna ask all of you and we’re gonna ask Steve Bannon’s posse to crowdsource the rest. And when people figure out other ones that aren’t on that list, we’re gonna get them on that list.”

He plans to add the spreadsheet of names on a blockchain-protected site in hopes of bypassing censorship. World leaders, major corporations, numerous politicians, Big Tech companies, and more will appear on the list. Let’s let the public see how deep corruption is embedded in the global society.

Zelensky – The Madman of Ukraine

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

The bias of the Western Press is just unimaginable. I reported previously that our contacts in both Serbia and Hungary were reflecting overwhelming support for Putin and Russia. The press can’t report on anything honestly and calls Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor an “authoritarian” or a “nationalist” because anyone who dares to go against their agenda is evil. The BBC reported Orbán said: “We have such a victory it can be seen from the moon, but it’s sure that it can be seen from Brussels.”

It has been widely known that Serbia was very pro-Russia. I reported from our readers in Serbia that they were sick and tired of the West’s propaganda that they saw Zelensky for what he was – a puppet of the West. But the Western press will not report the truth about Zelensky and his covert connections. The press is oblivious to the truth and constantly paints Zelensky as a hero when in fact not merely did he outlaw the Russian language in a country made up of 30% Russians and over 50% also speak Russian, but he has also attacked the Russian Religion – he has been seeking to also outlaw Russian Orthodox Christianity.

These are actions that caused Putin to recognize independence for the Donbas but when VP Harris, at the Munich Security Conference on February 20th said Ukraine should join NATO, four days later Putin invaded. One must ask – was this all intentional or just stupidity?

So while Zelensky pretends to be a soldier for the cameras simultaneously preaching World War III to everyone else, his actions show a deep-seated hatred of the Russian people, especially those who live in the Donbas. He has made no effort to end the civil war since taking office in 2019. The West ignores Zelensky’s action outlawing the Russian language and his more recent attempt to outlaw the Russian Orthodox religion. Orbán immediately criticized Zelensky who the Press will NEVER criticize because all they ever preach is the agenda of the Neocons and their determination to manufacture World War III.

Religious liberty in Ukraine has been put at risk by Zelensky but the Press will not report that. The West will not report religious complaints about Zelensky from Putin. The Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) has become a political partner in this invasion of Ukraine. Putin is defending the Russian people against this anger from the West and even their religion. Moscow Patriarch Kirill has given the full religious blessing to the regime’s foreign policy agenda. Why?

What is NOT being reported is that Zelensky has been proposing the draft Law of Ukraine No. 7204 of March 22, 2022 “On Banning the Moscow Patriarchate on the Territory of Ukraine”, published on the VR website, its author is Oksana Savchuk, a deputy who entered the Rada on the lists of the All-Ukrainian Association “Svoboda” party in district No. 83 (Ivano-Frankivsk). Zelensky is attempting to even usurp the religion and ban in Ukraine the Moscow Patriarchate – the Russian Orthodox Church and religious organizations that are part of it, “including the Ukrainian Orthodox Church”.

This is like King Henry VIII who seized the Catholic Church, stole all its wealth, and created the Church of England eliminating the Pope. Zelensky is doing the same to terminate the Moscow Patriarchate as the head of the church in Ukraine. This is the man the West is cheering and never reports on what Putin is saying about the assault on religion.

This would be like the Jews seizing control of the Temple Mount and outlawing Islam. Hillary and others only talk about Ukrainians defending their home. About 30% of Ukraine are Russian and they do not like having their language being banned, the attempt to outlaw their religion as well.

Orbán proclaimed Zelensky is evil and he stands with the EU and George Soros. He said: “This is a victory over the left at home, the international left, the bureaucrats in Brussels, the money of the Soros empire, the international media, and even the Ukrainian president.” Orbán and Serbia along with many in the Middle East, Asia, and even India, are starting to see this man calling for World War III as the greatest single threat to world peace. But the Western press will not report the full scope of his actions that show it is not democracy he seeks, but tyranny.

Orbán has so far refused to allow the supply of weapons to Ukraine or even permit military aid to pass through Hungarian territory. He gas angered NATO allies and Zelensky, who has called the Hungarian prime minister “[Vladimir] Putin’s only European supporter”. But it is Zelensky who could have simply let the Donbas go but prefers to put Ukraine through a living hell many are starting to see that he is just a puppet of the Neocons.

It is also interesting to see Hillary Clinton coming out all the time filling the airwaves with hatred of Russia. Hillary has always been one of the Neocons who started the hatred of Putin by creating the fake Steele Dossier to claim Putin interfered in the 2016 election. She has now been fined by the Federal Election Commission but the press ignores all that and how much it cost the country is fake investigations. She accomplished her goal – 70% of Democrats believed Russia was the evil empire.

All my sources clearly say that Zelensky is a FRAUD. To the Italian Parliament, he claimed Russians were kidnapping children and torturing them with no proof. Then he claims that when the Russian left a town there were bodies everywhere when in fact that was another false flag and Russia has called for a UN security council meeting to look into this bullshit. Then he tells the Netherlands they will be next so start World War III now!

The US merely takes whatever Zelensky says and files charges against Russia like war crimes. It is actions like this that ensure we will NEVER return to world peace when all that is hurled at Russia is pure hatred. Never before the Biden Administration did we EVER witness any American President despise the head of Russia or China deliberately refusing to act civil. Even Kennedy sought peace through negotiation as did Nixon, Carter, and Reagan. We have no peacemakers today – only warmongers.

Then Zelensky appeared on the Grammys to sell the idea of war to the American people. Would they ever put Putin on to listen to his side of the story? Of course not!  I really wish everyone who cheers Zelensky should just go to Ukraine and go try and kill as many Russians as they want since they have been filled with such hate thanks to all the brainwashing. He could settle this and simply comply with (1) the 1991 Belgrade Agreement and Ukraine staying NEUTRAL, and (2) the Minsk Agreement and let the Russian section decide their own fate after he reversed the law and demanded that ONLY Ukrainian is the official language.

Polish Army forces have been put on alert near the border with Ukraine for Zelensky’s refusal to negotiate in good faith has created a change in plans. The Belarusian Armed Forces are preparing to enter the war and will attack Zelensky in Kyiv for they too have a national security risk as Zelensky keeps trying to drum up World War III and keeps pushing for NATO to enter. Belarus will take western Ukraine up to the border with Poland and Russia will take the East. We may see this launch by next week and this will mean that Zelensky has put Ukraine at risk for his refusal to negotiate in good faith honoring the Belgrade and Minsk Agreements.

Zelensky has supported the Ukrainian Nazis who have even bragged that they feed the bones of Russian-speaking children to their pet wolves. He could have easily resolved this entire crisis by releasing the very people Zelensky hates so much. He knows what he is doing by constantly trying to get NATO to enter Ukraine which will be World War III that he said has already started. He will go down in history as someone up there with Adolf Hitler when the dust settles. He wants all our children to die for his personal hatred. Pushing Russia against the wall will only lead to Nuclear War. He has divided the entire world and it seems he is following orders. He cannot be this reckless.
