Federalist v Ant-Federalist / Vaccinated v Anti-Vaccinated

Armstrong Economics Blog/America’s Economic History Re-Posted Nov 29, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Hi Mr. Armstrong,

Thanks for all you do and all your hard work!

I have a question I was hoping you would comment on. I have been trying to wrap my head around the hows (not the whys) of the absurd consequences of this plandemic.  What it reminds me of is the fight between the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists during the ratification process of the Constitution. I was taught the Bill of Rights bridged the gap between the issues back then and obviously satisfied their differences since the ratification went through.

Today, it seems as if there is no Bill of Rights and no possible bridge to balance political differences. There are tyrannical federal policies (under the guise of public health/national security) and the lawsuits from state AGs, governors and private organizations to prevent these policies.  This is the obvious recourse.  But it seems this is not enough and more importantly this recourse will not prevent the same thing from happening again in the future.

So my question is what recourse did the Anti-Federalists have (after the Bill of Rights were added to the Constitution) to address their worst fears? Elections? Overthrowing the government?

Are the Bill of Rights being violated just during this cycle of history?  Or is there really no other recourse besides arming ourselves if the police decide not to support the people?


ANSWER: The recourse of the anti-Federalists was separation which led to the American Civil War. What you are saying is only partly true. They voted on the Constitution without the Bill of Rights. They got it through only on a majority vote of 39 out of 70 attendants. To the surprise of most, the United States was wrongfully created and the Federalists won at first, but it was the opposite party of Jefferson that eventually took down the Federalist Party.

It was Alexander Hamilton who led the charge to ratify the Constitution. He solicited John Jay and James Madison, and together they would create a series of 85 articles, published in the New York newspapers between October 27, 1787, and August 16, 1788, which became known as the Federalist Papers. It was Hamilton who chose the title of The Federalist, which was at that moment a controversial act of political aggression since it was the anti-Constitutionalists were actually for federalism insofar as it was a union. By entitling this article series The Federalist, Hamilton would take the high ground by asserting that the Constitution represented a better version of federalism than the Articles of Confederation.


Once federalism took hold, it quickly became self-evident that the people overthrew a king for ruthless bureaucrats. The Whiskey Rebellion was a tax protest in the United States beginning in 1791, during the presidency of George Washington. Farmers who used their leftover grain and corn in the form of whiskey as a medium of exchange were forced to pay a new tax. Yes – it was a 1791 version of Bitcoin. Many participants were Revolutionary War veterans, who argued that they were fighting for the very same principles of the American Revolution – no taxation without local representation. Of course, the new Federal government maintained the taxes were the legal authority of the taxing powers of Congress that they put in the Constitution – not the people.

It was in July 1794 this first confrontation between those who really had not consented to this federalism erupted into violence with more than 500 armed men attacking the fortified home of tax inspector General John Neville. President Washington responded personally with men he then called “rebels” to justify their massacre. Once the state attaches the label “criminal” it then justifies violence against them regardless of the issue in question.

Washington gathered an army of 13,000 militia provided by the governors of Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and set out to wage war against the American people, most of whom had fought for American Independence. Washington rode at the head of an army personally. The rebels were way outnumbered and it became clear, pay your taxes or you will be dead. The rebels went home before the arrival of the army, and there was no confrontation. Nonetheless, it was at that moment that the evil of the federalist was exposed once and for all.

The union from that moment on was NEVER 100%. As I said, the ratification was 39 out of 70 votes and if human nature is what it is, there were probably votes that were bought with gold. It was this union by force that led to the American Revolution. The slavery issue was simply that it was the labor force in those days. Today they are outlawing fossil fuels which is already altering the course of the economy. Putting the human question of slavery aside and looking at this from an economic perspective, the North was telling the South they had to lockdown their economy and effectively terminate its existence. Naturally, with time, many stayed and were paid wages instead of just free room and board as was the case of serfdom. A serf could not be sold except with the farm whereas a slave could be sold individually.

In modern terms, if you outlaw the means to earn a living over whatever issue, they will rise up against the source of that decree. Hence, history will repeat because human nature remains the same. Consequently, the ONLY solution will be separation for the tyranny of the majority will also result in civil war.

Four Months of Unanswered Protests in Guadeloupe

Armstrong Economivs Blog/Civil Unrest Re-Posted Nov 29, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Citizens of the French Caribbean territory of Guadeloupe have been protesting COVID-19 restrictions for the past four months. In response, authorities have implemented a 6 PM curfew to prevent people from gathering. Reports of protestors shooting at the police, arson, and looting have resulted as anger grows.

The citizens of Guadeloupe have every reason to be hesitant. From 1973 to 1993, the insecticide chlordecone was used on banana plantations, resulting in mass exposure to dangerous toxins. The chemical was used for nearly two decades, and almost all adult residents have traces of the toxin in their bloodstream. The coastal waterways, rivers, and large areas of soil still contain the deadly toxin. Fishing in many areas is prohibited. Cancer, tremors, premature births, slurred speech, short-term memory loss, and a lowered sperm count are among the many dangers chlordecone possesses. Why did it take 20 years to ban chlordecone? Banana lobbyists. What is France doing to correct the problem? Nothing.

The people of Guadeloupe have already suffered at the hands of a corrupt government. The country had an unemployment rate well above 20% before COVID started, and a large part of its GDP is derived from tourism. Forcing vaccines on a population that is currently battling the effects of government incompetence and greed will lead to disaster.

Mass Psychosis and Totalitarianism

Armstrong Economics Blog/Behavioral Economics Re-Posted Nov 29, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

“Logic can be met with logic, while illogic cannot—it confuses those who think straight. The Big Lie and monotonously repeated nonsense have more emotional appeal in a cold war than logic and reason. While the enemy is still searching for a reasonable counter-argument to the first lie, the totalitarians can assault him with another.”

NIH Director Cannot Explain Why Florida Has Lowest COVID Infection Rate in Nation, Apparently The Result Defies The Acceptable Science

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on November 28, 2021 | Sundance | 184 Comments

National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins appeared on Fox News today to push the panic button around the latest COVID variant, Omicron.  Dr. Collins was pushing the vaccine hard as he explained why Americans need to be concerned about the latest variant.

Vaccines, and now double and triple booster shots, are the acceptable scientific approach to combating the arriving Omicron variant, which Collins’ protege Dr. Fauci has warned could lead to a new round of lockdowns, mask mandates and social distancing requirements from federal and state officials.

However, in the face of all the panic promotion, NIH Director Collins was asked to reconcile why Florida, the most open and free state in the nation – that does not have any COVID mandates in place, would also have the lowest infection rate in the country.   Dr. Collins refused to answer the question, and instead repeated his rehearsed talking points.

It is very telling -in a weird way- how the NIH Director would not answer the question. In fact, he avoided it completely.  WATCH (Prompted):

Sunday Talks, Fear Mongering Fauci Warns of More Lockdowns, Too Soon To Tell

The fabulously fraudulent fear mongering fiend known as Anthony Fauci was all over television today proclaiming the pending horribleness from Omicron, the latest and greatest of Fauci’s variants.

In this soundbite the vertically challenged little fellas are talking shop about new lockdowns.

CNN Reports Cars Have Advanced From Looting to Terrorism and Murder

Last week NBC and California media reported that cars were responsible for looting and general mayhem in/around the San Francisco shopping districts {SEE HERE}.

…”Just before 9 p.m. dozens of cars pulled up to 1200 Broadway Plaza to block off the street and rush into store.” (link)

…“About 25 cars just blocked the street and rushed into the Walnut Creek Nordstrom making off with goods before getting in cars and speeding away,” Hernandez said on Twitter.

Today, CNN announces that cars have become even more violent: “Waukesha will hold a moment of silence .. one week since a car drove through a city Christmas parade“:

Sunday Talks, Adam Schiff Outlines the Democrat 2022 Strategy Using the J6 Committee – Prediction Tripwires

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on November 28, 2021 | Sundance | 145 Comments

The DC system is predictable in how they weaponize their branches against the electorate.  As the primary races of the mid-term election looms, CTH also provides a few tripwires to watch.  Keep in mind, when it comes to controlling the electorate, Democrat and Republican leadership, the UniParty writ large are united in that goal.

In this interview the insufferable House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff appears on CNN to discuss the House efforts to weaponize the J6 Committee for maximum political benefit.  The key point to take away from this interview can only be found if you ignore the political manipulation, a shell game, around labeling the opposition as domestic extremists.  The intent to use the J6 committee as a political narrative engineering effort is obvious; everyone will talk about that aspect.

Instead, listen to how many times Schiff notes the committee will provide the DOJ with information they gather.  The DOJ role is where everyone should be paying attention; and by DOJ we mean DOJ and FBI.  WATCH Schiff first:

Instead of focusing on the obvious, look around.   It is not coincidental the people behind Biden and Lawfare are funneling information into the Lisa Monaco and Merrick Garland DOJ to use against their political opposition.  The DOJ/FBI targeting school board protests; the DOJ/FBI targeting James O’Keefe; the DOJ/FBI rounding up J6 attendees etc are the visible tip of the iceberg.

The iceberg itself is built upon the aligned political system, the White House included, feeding the DOJ/FBI targeting information. In/around the spring of 2022, right about the time when the primary challenges to establish the field of contenders for the mid term election are happening, that is when we will see OUTCOMES from the DC system building that below surface iceberg right now.

♦ Tripwire One – The investigative referrals from the J6 committee to the DOJ/FBI in the spring of 2022 will be akin to the Clinton campaign referrals to the DOJ/FBI in the fall of 2016.   The appearance of criminal activity will be fabricated to trigger those investigations for the media to cover at length over the course of several months.  The media pattern of “according to people familiar with the investigation,” and “according to people with knowledge of the investigation,” will start again.

The corporate printing presses will all be building upon each other, timed to culminate just before the November 2022 election.  Much of the political targeting will come from the J6 Committee; however, there’s another part that is being built right now that few are seeing.

♦ Tripwire Two – There will be a very dramatic RICO-esque investigation that will drop in/around the same time in 2022.  The targets of the case(s) will be a collective group of people who were at the epicenter of the 2020 audit demand.   The entry point for Lisa Monaco and Merrick Garland will be investigations of wire-fraud; and the people targeted will come from the groups who were/are fundraising around the issues of state audits in the aftermath of the 2020 election.

The investigative cases against the groups may be independent in some ways, but the commonality behind them will be their efforts to organize funding for the 2020 election audits (Georgia, Michigan and Arizona as well known examples).

Any entity who did not very carefully and transparently organize their fundraising activity and accounting will be targeted.   A reference for the approach the DOJ will take is the 2020 indictment of Steve Bannon and the We Build The Wall organization [Reference Link].

If you take the language of the prior Bannon indictment and overlay the new target, the wording of the investigative narrative will look like this: “As alleged, the defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors, capitalizing on their interest in [funding independent election audits] to raise millions of dollars, under the false pretense that all of that money would be spent on [audits],” the DOJ will say in their statement.

CTH will not go into the details of who exactly will be targeted, you can likely guess the most visible, but this approach is almost guaranteed to happen at roughly the same time as the J6 referrals.   Unfortunately, it’s just the way this newly weaponized DOJ/FBI system deploys.  I would not be surprised if there were not confidential informants operating in the background of these audit groups right now with an intent to assemble information for transmission to the FBI and DOJ.

The motives are obvious: (1) tamp down any election integrity measures; (2) demoralize the MAGA or spirited America-First base of opposition against Democrats; (3) put the Republican Party on the defensive; (4) take attention away from the economic mess caused by the current administration; and (5) provide political turmoil in the ranks of their opposition.

The DOJ/FBI will be used for maximum political damage, and as you know, the professional Republican Party stands to gain just as much by this effort as the Democrat Party.   Similar to how the GOPe supported the targeting of the Tea Party by the DOJ using the IRS, so too will the GOPe support the targeting of the various support networks behind the audit the election groups; what John McCain called, “the whacko birds.”

Put the J6 investigation and Audit investigation together, and you can see the DNC approach for 2022.

Hopefully by reading this the groups can prepare.

Sunday Talks, Allianz Group Chief Economic Advisor Mohamed El-Erian Emphasizing Inflation is Not Transitory – Inflation is a Consequence of Embracing The Great Reset

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on November 28, 2021 | Sundance | 126 Comments

FULL Analysis Below Video:

Allianz Group chief economic advisor, Mohamed El-Erian, is one of the few financial pundits who understood President Trump’s purposeful economic agenda inside the America First policy {Go Deep and Go Deep}.  However, El-Erian also has to maintain his Wall Street credibility and, like most financial pundits, has to pretend not to know things when the emperor’s new clothes -Biden economics- are being discussed.

El-Erian uses the lingo of the club as he walks carefully in the shadow of his Wall Street allies, and he has to avoid the 800lb gorilla in the room and ignore there are other newly surfacing mechanisms available to the government in their approach to inflation.  In this interview El-Erian does emphasize that inflation is not transitory, it is only going to get worse as long as the Federal Reserve keeps printing money to keep up with the massive and ongoing Democrat spending programs.

When El-Erian says the Fed needs to take their foot off the accelerator, he’s talking about how the Fed policy right now is purchasing debt (Quantative Easing) and printing money to keep up with legislative spending programs.  He knows the Biden administration will not stop this approach, they are committed to the Build Back Better program, and as a consequence El-Erian knows inflation will continue in direct proportion to that ‘demand side‘ activity.  But he cannot call it out directly – he can only say inflation will continue.

All of the Wall Street pundits know the Fed cannot hit the brakes (raise interest rates and stop purchasing debt) or else this entire manipulated economy (even on a global scale) will collapse; as El-Erian says “plunge into a recession.”  It is a tenuous house of cards the current Wall Street crew is betting to remain in place due to the ideological politics (Green New Deal, Build Back Better, etc ).

In my opinion, the executive suites of Wall Street also know the new COVID variant Omicron is an attempt by the global market manipulators to put an tenuous emergency brake on the demand side in an effort to slow inflation and get people to drop pitchforks.

None of the financial pundits will admit the true intent of the narrative behind the Omicron variant.

We can debate the origin and ideological intent of the COVID virus, vis-a-vis controlling populations via passports etc; however, it is clear at this point that COVID is being exploited as a new tool in the global economic control toolbox.  If money -global economic control- was not the motive behind how SARS-CoV-2 is being used, we could not predict the timing, methods and approaches of government to each COVID narrative and evolving variant.

Globally, the various governments and central banks have been pumping out massive amounts of money; spending into oblivion and then buying back their own debt.  Currencies around the world are being devalued and this is the root of inflation.  The U.S. has spent and pumped more than most, because we benefit from our currency being attached to the global trade system.

Almost all global trade is made in dollars, so our currency is propped up globally.   This artificially inflated value allows the U.S. congress to deficit spend like crazy, and the Fed to purchase the debt via bond sales.

This one-sided benefit is why OBL targeted the World Trade Center.  This artificial system is also why Biden can claim the U.S. GDP is the only economy growing during the pandemic.

The U.S. dollar is essentially being subsidized by global markets.  However, the downside to all of this dollar printing means our rate of inflation (currency devaluation) is higher than other nations.   The world is experiencing inflation from their internal monetary policy, but our inflation is higher than average.   As a consequence, the people in control of various governments need the tool of Omicron, but our government needs it more than average.

The elites inside the World Bank (WB), International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Economic Forum (WEF) are using Omicron as a short term tool to control inflation by trying to use it to control demand.  The politicians who receive their instructions from the entities in control of these institutions are all following the program.

It is more important for our government to use Omicron than all other governments because we are the spending center.  That is why we are seeing a much bigger emphasis upon it by our government; and that is why the descending levels of variant emphasis all fall in line depending on how closely they are aligned as allies.

♦ When it comes to COVID panic – Canada, the U.K. and Australia are globally akin to New York, New Jersey and California domestically.

♦ What Florida is to COVID panic inside the U.S.  –  Japan and India are to COVID panic globally.

Panic responses from spending allies are being emphasized.  Non-panic responses from lesser spending friends are being ignored.

That is exactly what we are seeing.  The vaccines are a shiny thing.

On a geopolitical level – China, Iran and Russia (adversaries on an ideological level) know what is happening, and to the extent they can drive inflation even higher, they will because they know these massive increases in costs hurt the U.S. disproportionately.   This is why OPEC is giving Biden the middle finger on his ‘request’ to increase oil production, and that is why China is now triggering shipping quarantines.

Hope that makes sense.
