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!

Are Democrats all Evil?


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

QUESTION: You always bash the Democrats. Do you think they are all evil?

AD

ANSWER: No. I don’t think you understand how Washington works. You can vote for a candidate on whatever they say they will fight for. Then they get to Washington. There they are instructed that they MUST vote for whatever the party is doing even if they disagree with it. The head of each party holds a welcome meeting where they are given instructions on how to vote. In all honesty, it is really irrelevant what anyone stands for in either party. Just look at the votes. You will see they are 99% of the time along party lines.

So the important issue is not what someone says, but what is the Party agenda. If you really think that Biden wrote all those executive orders you are dreaming. His handlers had them already drafted and he is just told – sign here – with little red arrow stickers.

This is why I say that Republics are the WORST form of government for you cannot hold anyone to what they promise. Therefore, I am not talking about individuals and I seriously DOUBT that even most Democrats understand that the agenda is being choreographed from a global perspective. Most have no contact with Gates or the World Economic Forum. Control the leadership and you control the party.

This is no longer about America. I also warned that this last election was NOT about Trump v Biden. Trump learned the hard way that being President is not the same as being the president of a corporation. There is no central all-powerful position in the Oval Office. Biden just does what he is told. That is it! Welcome to real politics 101 for it works the same way in both parties.

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

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.

Corporations, Specifically Multinationals, Hate Capitalism – Understand That Point and Things Make Sense


Posted originally on the conservation tree house April 11, 2021 | Sundance | 192 Comments

Boy howdy is there a disconnect amid the outlook of most ‘conservatives’ when it comes to corporations and capitalism.   This tweet is a great place to recognize the distinction between the objectives of multinational corporations and their hatred of capitalism.

First, they were not “corporations” on the call, that is not an accurate description.  The assembly was a group of “multinationals” discussing their objectives, goals and outlooks on politics.  There is a difference between an ordinary corporation and a multinational corporation.  Multinationals hate capitalism.

When I say most multinational corporations hate capitalism many people look confused.

Let me help by sharing a short video that explains why:

The first myth busted in that video explains why corporations do not like capitalism.  That’s why Big Tech is also against capitalism.

Multinationals want control; some call that corporatism…. but the names are moot.  Multinationals want control, and capitalism does not allow them control; that is why multinationals do not want capitalism.  Multinationals use lobbyists to generate regulations that stall competition.

Multinationals do not want competition; they are, by nature of their interest, anti-capitalists.

This misunderstanding is everywhere.

Sunday Talks, John Ratcliffe Discusses Severe Political Compromise Within U.S. Intelligence Community

Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe appears with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the issues with Hunter Biden’s laptop and the severity of political compromise within the U.S. intelligence apparatus.  Ratcliffe notes how politicized the intelligence community and national security have become specifically in defense of lies being perpetrated by those behind the Biden administration.

Misinformation and disinformation is rampant as the Nat Sec community and Intel Community use their political ideology to advance false assertions.  Good segment, WATCH:

Corporate MSM, the mouthpieces for Wall Street and the deep state, including Fox News, will do everything possible to stop this type of conversation.

Sunday Talks, Jim Jordan Discusses His Border Visit and Being Forbidden From Documenting Crisis – ANALYSIS: A Part of The Crisis Story Everyone is Missing


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 11, 2021 | Sundance | 203 Comments

Ohio Representative Jim Jordan appears with Maria Bartiromo to discuss his visit to the U.S-Mexico border and what he personally witnessed.  Jim Jordan outlines how the JoeBama administration is blocking people from documenting the scale of the crisis and concludes the resulting influx is exactly what the administration wants.

ANALYSIS –  Many people (conservative media and politicians specifically) are misinterpreting the removal of the Biden administration’s Southern Border coordinator, Roberta Jacobson, from office.  Jacobson was not removed from her position for being ineffective, her removal was announced because her goal was successfully accomplished.  [It is frustrating to read THIS STUFF]

Let me be clear… Roberta Jacobson was put into position in January by those in control of the Biden administration specifically to coordinate this mass migration influx.  Her mission was to create the crisis, not to prevent it.  She was put into place to trigger the mass migration.  How do we know this?….

When Roberta Jacobson was Ambassador to Mexico she was working against the policy of the Trump administration.  She was running a covert effort to pipeline Central American immigrants through Mexico into the United States.  Yes, Roberta Jacobson was part of the trafficking network; that is why she was removed from her position in March 2018…  President Trump found out Roberta Jacobson was working with far-left immigration groups against his administration.

When Trump eventually found out what Jacobson was doing in Mexico, he quickly dispatched Jared Kushner to meet with Mexican officials and outline that Jacobson did not represent President Trump and she was fired.  [Remember, this was before AMLO was elected]

FLASHBACK MARCH 2018 –  Jared Kushner was in Mexico Wednesday to repair relations with the United States’ southern neighbor and key trading partner after a tense phone call between Presidents Donald Trump and Enrique Pena Nieto ended recently with the Mexican leader’s canceling a planned visit to America.

But Kushner, Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law who had no government or diplomatic experience before taking office …  has been criticized for not including the outgoing U.S. ambassador in his meetings.

[…] After Wednesday’s meetings, however, it appeared there had been little progress in rescheduling. Mexican officials say both sides agreed that a future meeting will depend on how much progress is made on other issues, including NAFTA, migration, economic cooperation, and security, which would include Trump’s proposal for a border wall.

[…] U.S. Ambassador Roberta Jacobson, a 30-year veteran of U.S.-Latin America policy and top diplomat who has announced her resignation, was not in either of Kushner’s meetings with Videgaray or Pena Nieto, according to a statement and photos released by the Mexican government. She was also not even invited, according to The New York Times. .. (read more)

It must be remembered the spring of 2018 was when President Trump was pushing forward with the USMCA trade agreement to replace NAFTA and the former Mexican government was pushing back hard against it.  President Trump announced he would initiate economic leverage against Mexico including tariffs if they did not comply with closing the NAFTA loopholes and supporting a new trade deal.

Videgaray and Nieto were fighting against President Trump and making threats to flood the U.S. with illegal aliens.  In the background Ambassador Jacobson was working as an inside agent to assist Mexico against President Trump.  Part of that effort by Ms. Jacobson was to organize and trigger the migrant caravan wave that happened in the fall of 2018.

The migrant caravan held a dual purpose of benefit for Ambassador Jacobson and the Mexican government:

(1) The caravan of immigrants was a coordinated ideological effort of the far-left, the open border community.

(2) The caravan of immigrants and the crisis they carried would be used as leverage by Mexican officials against Trump policy in the economic trade negotiations.

♦ In August of 2017 President Trump and Commerce Secretary Ross were discussing their trade efforts within NAFTA and renegotiation with Mexico/Canada on a trilateral basis. However, the U.S. administration said if it doesn’t work, they’d scrap the 3-way NAFTA deal and go one-on-one with individual bilateral agreements.

In response, Mexican Economic Minister Ildefonso Guajardo threatened to flood the U.S. with South American illegal aliens, criminals and gang members as leverage:

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico could pull back on cooperation in migration and security matters if the United States walks away from talks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Mexican economy minister said in a newspaper report published on Thursday.

“If they do not treat [us] well commercially, they should not expect us to treat them well by containing the migration that comes from other regions of the world and crosses Mexico,” Guajardo said. “Or they should not expect to be treated well in collaboration with security issues in the region.” (LINK)

However, Mexican Minister Ildefonso Guarjardo’s threat was mild compared to a threat in January 2017, when another Mexican official promised to flood the U.S. with South American drugs and gang violence:

♦ In a stunning segment on Fareed Zakaria’s CNN broadcast January 29th, 2017, Mexico’s former foreign minister, Jorge Castaneda, states the Mexican government was willing to counter U.S. President Donald Trump policy by unleashing drug cartels upon the U.S. border.

Watch, and more importantly LISTEN, to his words at 02:10 below (Prompted):

This was the most politically explosive admission by the Mexican government in the past decade. Even Fareed Zakaria realized what was being threatened and quickly attempted to redirect the conversation.

Mr. Castaneda was openly admitting a willingness to promote drug trafficking. Additionally, Jorge Castaneda is so proud of the threat, he posted a video of the discussion on his own YouTube page.

This was the background battle in 2017.  Mexican officials were working with U.S. State Department officials and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to block President Trump from enforcing immigration limits, border security, building a wall and then proceeding to get rid of NAFTA.  The entire diplomatic corps, and Wall Street group which funds them, were trying to stop President Trump’s initiative.

Trump was waging this economic confrontation against Mexico at the same time he was dealing with North Korea nukes, moving trade policy in Southeast Asia, initiating tariffs against China and coordinating energy independence with peace in the middle-east.  There was so much going on that almost no-one was paying attention to the issues in Mexico…. UNTIL the fall of 2018 when the Central American caravans hit the headlines.

Roberta Jacobson had coordinated the caravans and was fired by Trump in the spring of 2018.  So when Biden hired Jacobson to be the border coordinator in January 2021 for 100 days (note the timeline was not accidental) she was installed specifically to trigger this massive influx of illegal aliens; which is an exact duplication of what she did in 2018 as Ambassador to Mexico.

Jacobson was always going to leave the administration after her successful mission.  It was planned this way.  The only reason she is leaving a little earlier is because she accomplished her task ahead of schedule.  She is leaving early because she did better than JoeBama expected.

Hopefully that clears up the confusion.
