Resistance is not Futile – it is Inevitable

Comment from Ireland: It seems your 2018 article was correct & more or less on time.

“From a cyclical perspective, if we begin on August 15th, 1969, then we are concluding a 51.6-year wave on 2021.2219178, which will be March 22nd. It is lining up with the Economic Confidence Model and the Monetary Crisis Cycle. Therefore, the violence will reemerge with a new trend once again driven by economics. Violence has continued sporadically but it has been rising gradually again since 2013.”

1969.55

REPLY: It is my hope that people understand that these forecasts are NOT based upon my opinion. There is a cyclical nature to everything. The key is to open your eyes and look around you. If there is anything I can contribute to society before I am released from this chaotic world, I hope it will be the fact that we make that first step for mankind departing linear analysis and moving to the dynamic world of nonlinear activity where they finally grasp that everything has a cycle.

Cyclically, the time is now. From the landing on the Moon (1969.55), we have now reached 2021.15, marking the attempt to change the world once again on the negative side. The turning point before 1969.55 was 1917.95. Ironically, it was on Dember 15, 1917, when an armistice was signed between the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic on the one side and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Kingdom of Bulgaria, the German Empire, and the Ottoman Empire on the other. Communism was given the green light. Unfortunately, this particular cycle has warned that we indeed face the rise of tyranny once more here in 2021.

Resistance is not futile — it is inevitable.

Ned Ryun Gets it Right, It Will Take Individual State Action to Stop The Advance of Corporatism


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 16, 2021 | Sundance | 19 Comments

A slow awakening amid conservatives?…  Is there hope?…  This guy gets it.  American majority CEO Ned Ryun discusses the distinct difference between corporatism and capitalism and points out how JoeBama’s big government model is based on the principle of letting the multinationals erode civil liberties. 

This might sound familiar if you have read THIS HERE and THIS HERE.  Watch:

Multinational corporations do not like capitalism because within the process of capitalism they do not have control over the financial outcomes.  Capitalism breeds competition; multinationals abhor competition, they are totalitarian in ideology and want the entire pie under their control.  Multinational corporations do not like capitalism; underline it, emphasize it, do not forget it.

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.

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

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

This misunderstanding is everywhere.

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.

Capitalism is based on the principles of a free market.  Multinationals do not want a free market, they want a controlled market.  Their efforts toward a vaccine passport are an example of yet another control they can manipulate for maximum financial benefit.  It really is that simple…..

…. Meanwhile the crew of totalitarians behind JoeBama know they can benefit from their corporate allies.  The multinationals will pay the politicians for control and the politicians will construct defensive legislative outcomes that protect the multinationals.  That is what is happening in exponentially increasing sunlight.

Unfortunately the multinationals are also the funding mechanism for the UniParty.  Democrats and Republicans both benefit from the financial process of payments by the multinationals for control of legislative outcomes.   This is the entire purpose of K-Street.   In third-world countries we call bribery of elected officials “corruption”; however, in the United States we call bribery of elected officials “lobbying”, the process is exactly the same.

Can you see it now?….

The federal government is lost amid this sordid soup of corporate interests.  Republicans and Democrats are benefiting from COVID financial opportunities provided by the multinationals.

How will this play out?…  Well, follow it to its natural conclusion.

It will be up to the individual states to block vaccine passport requirements initiated by the private sector.  Unfortunately their track record on mask requirements is not a good precursor for what needs to happen.  States will need to initiate legislation that prohibits private companies from demanding vaccinations in order to participate in their commercial enterprise (airline flights, venue entry, tickets, etc.).

Some states will do this, other states will not; that’s the problem.  We are going to have “free states” and “control states”.

Ideological banks may stop doing business in free states.  Ideological airlines may stop doing business in free states.  Ideological companies like Amazon may stop doing business in free states.   Everything will fracture and the Alinsky crew will be high-fiving themselves.  Then issues like the postal service will come up…. Eventually the federal government will step-in to play a role and… they will likely support the corporations because that’s who pays them.

The worst part about all of this is the origination is a fraud.  The entire functional narrative of the COVID virus is based on a fraud.  It’s not about a virus; nothing about this has anything to do with a virus; it is all about control.

Jim Jordan -vs- Dr Fauci

Representative Jim Jordan asked Dr. Fauci when the COVID mitigation would be considered successful?  When exactly would Americans be permitted to recapture the rights the government has taken away?  What exactly are the metrics that define success?….

The essential response from Dr. Fauci was: “when I say it is.”  WATCH:

Maricopa County, Arizona, Ballot Audit Will Take Place At State Fairgrounds as Board of Supervisors Refuses to Permit Use of County Tabulations Center


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 15, 2021 | Sundance | 101 Comments

[Full Background Here] After a few months of back-and-forth legal battles between the Arizona state senate and the Maricopa County board of supervisors, the ballots in Arizona’s most populous county are going to be audited beginning in approximately one week, April 22nd.

However, it is my opinion the Board of Supervisors is intentionally trying to set up an issue with chain-of-custody to nullify the results of the audit.

Maricopa County officials refused to allow the audit to take place in the tabulations center where the ballots are currently stored {Go Deep}.  As a result the ballot audit will take place at the Arizona Exposition and State Fairgrounds.  The auditors are trying to be as transparent as possible knowing the outcome, if it turns out as predicted to find significant fraud, will be legally challenged.

The auditors are allowing any person who lives in the county to be a participant in the physical audit and re-canvassing.  The auditor are being proactive toward establishing transparency and legitimacy; however, the county board of supervisors appears to be operating with an intent to undercut the audit results.   [You can follow the audit on Twitter Here] – [You can apply to assist the audit HERE]https://www.youtube.com/embed/smJEAqQoivY?feature=oembed

.

The Maricopa Audit is critical.  It could be the first step in revealing any election fraud; and the consequences of the audit could then trigger other state legislatures to do a similar physical ballot audit and re-canvass.   The leftists know the importance of this Arizona audit; and it is with that in mind I find it very suspicious they are intentionally forcing the auditors to move the physical location of millions of ballots.

Some in Arizona have the same concern.  Note this letter:Attention: Arizona Senate,


Arizona Revised Statute 16-624(A) states, “After the canvas has been completed, the officer in charge of elections shall deposit the package or envelope containing the ballots in a secure facility managed by the Maricopa County Treasurer, who shall keep it unopened and unaltered for twenty-four months for elections for a federal office or for six months for all other elections, at which time he shall destroy it without opening or examining the contents.”

We read Judge Thomason’s order, which states, “The County claims it has not stored the ballots with the Maricopa County Treasurer as required “because of ongoing litigation.” The County states that it will deposit the ballots in the Treasurer’s vault, “as the law requires,” only after litigation concludes. It is unclear why the County feels justified in violating the law simply because litigation is pending, but claims that it cannot violate the law by complying with the Subpoenas.”

Why haven’t you done something about the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors’ violation of ARS 16-624(A) by not transferring custody of ballots to the Maricopa County Treasurer’s office?

We the People, demand the audit be conducted in the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center (MCTEC) where there are IP addresses, internet connectivity, nest cameras, modems, and routers (and all the data in them) from “the scene”. We should NOT disengage all of that and attempt to recreate it in another location – information and data will be lost. The Board of Supervisors do not  own the County buildings, the audit is funded by the taxpayers and the chain of custody would be protected. Moving the ballots gives the BOS plausible deniability in the event ballots have gone missing. The ballots were already moved once by the BOS – we have not forgotten! Also, it is customary practice when fighting over disclosure and subpoenaed items to make said item available at their physical location when it is impracticable to do otherwise. Furthermore, the former Maricopa County Recorder, Adrian Fontes, had been parading around bragging about Dominion having had offices with staff INSIDE MCTEC for a long time.

Go back to the Judge. Get Judge Thomason on the phone and get the matter on the record now. Demand access pursuant to the order and ask the judge to hold the Board in contempt if they do not open the doors now. The Judge made every point to reinforce your authority over the County.

Where is the court order to secure Irregular ballots under ARS 16-624(B), as they are specifically named separately from other ballots? Under AZ Statute, they are only preserved for 6 months (May 3, 2021). We demand this issue be acknowledged and a court order obtained to preserve irregular ballots in ALL counties in AZ.

You must take action now!

Arizona and the World is Watching how you will react to this very important issue of Election Integrity and We the People of AZ will stand behind you!Sincerely,Vera AndersonPC & State Committeeman LD20, CD6 National Delegate to RNC Convention 2020

Our War Index


Armstrong Economics Blog/War Re-Posted Apr 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Marty,

I noticed the inclusion in the Global Market report in the world indexes a new listing for The War Index. What does this include(presumably armament stocks?) or is this a construct that comprises something geopolitical?

MS

ANSWER: This is an index we created with selected stocks that benefit during periods of war. This index is right now flirting with the Monthly Bullish Reversal, and we may get a monthly buy signal by the end of this month, warning that things are not looking very stable on the geopolitical front as we head into May.

Czech Government Using COVID for Permanent Control


Armstrong Economics Blog/Eastern Europe Re-Posted Apr 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Czech government just issued the rules for when shops and services reopen (these rules are to apply until the country goes from the current 4th stage to the 1st stage – i.e. very few “cases” and pretty much no deaths… so, forever, basically):

– respirator masks obligatory for now everywhere (incl. outside); in stage 1 (i.e. when “pandemic” is basically gone, a surgical mask will still be required in all inside places!)

– social distancing and strict limitations on how many people can gather (in stage 5 only 2 people can gather together, incl. outside; in stage 4 it’s 6 people, and in stage 1 inside 100 people will be able to be together and outside 500 max… so, even when the “pandemic” is gone, no mass demonstrations etc…hmmm); PLUS, even in stage 1 everyone will have to keep “social distance” of 2 meters in all closed spaces!

– when shops, services, etc reopen people will NEED A NEGATIVE “TEST” to enter service establishments (such as hairdressers, etc), hotels and other such tourist places, restaurants, pubs and bars, etc! Plus, these tests will need to be done every 3 to 5 days (so if you stay in a hotel for a week, you’ll need to show a test at the beginning of your stay and a new one after 3-5 days!)

– just as the customers will need a “test” certificate to enter such establishments, the staff will also have to be tested every few days (the “test” requirement is only to be dropped in stage 1… i.e. pretty much never, because they’ll always manufacture enough “cases” via mass testing)

– cultural events (theater, cinema, etc), when they reopen, will also require everyone to show a negative test certificate

– testing will also be required (as it already is) in workplaces and schools

Back in October when Slovakia introduced this forced periodic testing, I knew it was to be implemented in many/most other countries (at least in the EU). And, sure enough, now several countries are already doing the same (incl. Austria, Slovenia, now CZ, UK in certain places, some German states are running a pilot scheme too, etc).

Interestingly, the Czech rules do not at all include any stage when all restrictions will be dropped. As a minimum masks and social distancing (and limits on how many people can gather) are to stay forever, it seems.

PG

REPLY: The world monetary system is collapsing. Governments have been borrowing with no intention of repaying anything. They are using COVID to exert total control over the population in preparation for indeed the Great Reset, which is more than just BUILD BACK BETTER in a green fashion.

This is a total reset in the planning right down to what you use for money. Welcome to the Economic Ctrl-Alt-Delete

Anti-Vax War


Armstrong Economics Blog/Disease Re-Posted Apr 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: You are just a right-wing anti-vaxer.

anonymous

REPLY: I am glad you believe everything every politician ever has to say if they are on the LEFT. The FDA was supposed to be independent. The government’s role under this social contract is supposed to stand between us and corporate greed. The government has used COVID for political objectives and this is not restricted to the United States – it is excessive in Europe. On the one hand, you on the LEFT hate capitalism and despise the rich and big corporations. But somehow you support big corporations simply because your left-wing politician orders you to be vaccinated.

I neither trust Big Pharmaceutical companies nor do I ever trust what a politician says and that goes to both parties. I think you have some serious issues of bias that will lead you down a very dangerous path. Because politicians are deeply involved in this whole COVID nonsense, they cannot be trusted because a politician will NEVER admit a mistake. These vaccines could kill off 50% of the population long-term and they will NEVER admit that. They are NOT impartial and will not stand between them and us. That is not an arrangement that gets my trust.

In finance, we MUST reveal all conflicts of interest. In politics, they hide everything! And you want to risk your life, your family, and your posterity to such a system? I have no idea if there are long-term risks. Nobody does. I for one am not interested in taking such a risk and I should not be compelled to do so. There have been nearly 2,000 people who have died following vaccinations. Then those who have been vaccinated may be even more susceptible to the variants as they come. So if you want to gamble with your life simply because you hate Trump/Republicans, go right ahead. If it were Trump telling us to do this I still would not comply. And by the way, if you think wearing a shield and a mask will do anything, think again. This virus will mutate for several years to come. I suggest you dig a pit and stay inside until at least 2024

What Fools these Mortals Be


Armstrong Economics Blog/Basic Concepts Re-Posted Apr 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Fauci is political and has abandoned all medical advice. Historically, herd immunity is estimated to affect 60 to 70% of the population. Even the Black Plague killed about 50% of the population, and the survivors were naturally immune. Dr. Anthony Fauci and I use that title very loosely, has constantly shifted that number upward to force people to get vaccines. What is really the objective here? It certainly has nothing to do with health when the number of deaths is 0.028% on par with the flu.

Indeed, when this fake pandemic began, Fauci tended to cite the same 60 to 70 percent estimate that most experts did. Then he raised it to “70, 75 percent” in television interviews. Then in an interview with CNBC News, he said “75, 80, 85 percent” and “75 to 80-plus percent.” Fauci has lied about just about everything, and the mainstream media would be tearing Trump apart limb from limb if he had done such a thing. Fauci need not learn how to swim, for he has clearly the ability to walk on water.

Can CNN be sued for the Blood They Have on their Hands?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Opinion Re-Posted Apr 14, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Martin, I would visit my Dad in Boca and the TV would always be on CNN, but I could not hear it only read the subtitles.  I was disgusted to see the blatant propaganda and biased “reporting” which I read on screen.  As a proofreader at some of the top law firms in the US, I understood that neutral reporting did not exist at CNN.  This was during the Obama and Trump administrations.  Of course, during the Trump administration, CNN took a decided Left turn.  During the 2016 election campaign, almost every day, I would monitor the front page of the NY Times at a local newsstand.  For every two to three weeks of pro-Hillary “reporting”, there would be one day of neutral Trump reporting.  I saw that with my proofreader’s eyes and knew what was going on to my great disgust.

REPLY: I have heard from people whose father was 82 and died after four days of vaccination because they were panicked into getting a vaccine because of CNN. He died four days later. What about people whose children committed suicide because their future came to an end because of CNN’s reporting? I cannot believe all the emails from people who have suffered because of lockdowns, vaccines, and general fear instilled by CNN. Just as the First Amendment does not protect shouting “Fire!” in a crowded theater, CNN should have no protection from lawsuits because of their treachery. Even animals have been affected by these lockdowns. It was Trump who signed into law cruelty to animals was a federal crime.

In Schenck v. United States, 249 U.S. 47 (1919) it was held that if the speech is intended to result in a crime, and there is a clear and present danger that it actually will result in a crime, the First Amendment does not protect the speaker from government action. In my reading of that case, CNN has deliberately interfered in an election and has violated the civil rights of countless people. If we then look at the holding of New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964), in order for CNN to be held guilty for a claim of defamation or libel, the First Amendment requires that the plaintiff show that the defendant knew that a statement was false or was reckless in deciding to publish the information without investigating whether it was accurate. I believe we have probable cause to take down CNN.

House and Senate Planning to Introduce Legislation Thursday to Pack The Supreme Court


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 14, 2021 | Sundance | 114 Comments

Jerry ‘the penguin’ Nadler and Senator Ed Markey are planning to introduce legislation tomorrow to add four Supreme Court justices to the current bench.  The objective is to bring a liberal bias to the high court by adding four leftist judges.

WASHINGTON DC – The bill, led by Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), is the first legislation in recent years designed to add seats to the high court, and its introduction comes as progressive organizations are pushing for court expansion, after watching Senate Republicans fill three Supreme Court vacancies in four years under President Donald Trump.
