The Marxist Swamp


Posted originally on GrrrGraphics.com on MAY 5, 2021 AT 9:57 AM

We know the Democrats have morphed into the ‘Socialist Democratic Party.’ The word socialism can be considered a euphemism for Marxism. Senator Sanders may say he’s peddling e a soft form of socialism, but we know he honeymooned in Moscow and praised Castro as well as the Sandinistas. Bernie is a Marxist.

So is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Very few of the Democrat socialists believe in ‘America First.’ Instead, they’re all on the same page. They’re using climate change as a slippery slope that leads to communism. Like the Bolsheviks, they do not want a competing party. That’s why the violence committed by the Marxist Black Lives Matter group and Antifa is easily forgiven by the Democrats, yet the protest at the capitol building by Trump supporters is compared to the worst insurrection since the Civil War. The Democrats want to stay in power permanently and like the Bolsheviks, they will lie, cheat, murder, destroy American culture, and commit mayhem to do it.

The Republicans In Name Only or “RINOs” are really Democrats and globalists themselves. The Bushes, the McCains, the Cheneys have all been praised by the Democrats as ‘good’ Republicans. These neocons panicked and betrayed their own party when a real Republican and America First president was elected. Mitt Romney in particular showed his true Marxist colors and fought Trump at every turn. Romney is a traitor.

Perhaps the worst turncoat is Joe Biden. Good ol’ lunch bucket Joe pretended he was a traditional Democrat fighting for the middle class and blue collar types. Yet there’s something fishy about Joe. It’s obvious now that he’s swallowed the Green New Deal and Marxism hook line and sinker. He’d probably swallow Karl Marx’s fishing pole if he could. He has informed us that our Constitution isn’t absolute and that government is ‘We The People,’ not the citizens. Instead of unifying the country he has divided it further. He continues to denounceTrump supporters as terrorists and ‘white supremacists’ as he fails to prosecute Antifa members for burning down cities.

Biden and the Democrats love the communist party system in China. They want to suppress free speech and take our guns—just like in China. They want medical tyranny, tracking, spying, and granular control over all Americans—just like in in China.

Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform America. China Joe is continuing the transformation. It means more power to the government and less freedom for the people. The transformation is about making us a carbon copy of Communist China—with the Marxist Democrats as the ruling party.

Beijing Beats New York City


Armstrong Economics Blog/China Re-Posted May 6, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

A number of people often send nasty emails because they do not like the forecast that China will become the next financial capital of the world. The forecasts we put out are NOT based upon my OPINION. I simply report what the computer projects. This Great Reset is playing right into our forecast, for they are deliberately destroying the economy so they can “BUILD BACK BETTER,” as they like to say.

The problem is that they are ignorant of world history. The victor in war is NOT simply the person who has the largest army. There must be some advantage and that boils down to economics. The one with the strongest economy is the victor because they have the capacity to fund the war.

This is why barbarians could never invade Rome until the Roman Empire’s monetary system began to collapse following the capital of Emperor VBalerian I in 260AD. Even Alexander the Great was able to take the Persians because they lost their greatest and were unable to defend against a well-supported army. The South lost against the North in the American Civil War because the North was industrial whereas the South was primarily agrarian.

Deliberately destroying our economy so they can “Build Back Better” while creating food shortages and trying to end raising cattle because of CO2, has set the West on the course to economic decline. This has made the West vulnerable just as was the case with the Roman Empire.

Now everyone is starting to notice and even CNBC says that China will surpass the United States by 2028. Granted, the analytical field seems to notice trends of this nature only when it smacks them in their face. We published the report “China on the Rise” back in 2018.

Now New York City, thanks to Socialists who think they can keep taxing the rich without end,   lost its title as the home of more billionaires than anywhere else. Beijing has now taken that title. Some people think my reliance on history is foolish. History repeats because human nature is always the same.

Mainz

New York is dying. It is, in trading terms, a major SHORT! NYC is following the same path as Mainz. It was the city of Mainz where the Gutenberg printing press was invented. This created an economic boom and everyone wanted to be in Mainz. The politicians saw the boom and presumed the potential tax revenue was linear and would be endless – judging tomorrow by today’s trend. They began to borrow against what they anticipated would be there forever. As they needed the interest to pay for borrowing and became addicted to debt, they raised taxes.

The taxes kept rising so they killed the economic boom and people began to leave. Mainz followed the typical path as we are doing today. They were no longer paying off debt. They entered the Ponzi scheme – issued new debt to pay off the old in a revolving bond auction. Taxes kept rising and people migrated. The printing press was no longer unique to Mainz. The rich left town, taking their capital and entrepreneurship with them. When Mainz lost the confidence of the bond buyers and could no longer sell new debt to pay for the old, the collapse unfolded. Mainz, like Detroit, defaulted. The creditors sacked the city and it was burned to the ground.

The same precise pattern unfolds every time – WITHOUT EXCEPTION. Why? Human nature never changes. Create career politicians and they will always seek to expand government for that is their power base. All that is left is a nice monument commemorating Guttenberg. Of course, they never tell the full story of Mainz.

New York City is making all the same mistakes like clockwork. They think people can be exploited without end. There comes a point where it no longer is beneficial to work as a slave. Why invest in anything if those in power simply want to take whatever you invent.

I pray for 2032 to end corruption and drive a stake through the heart of republican forms of government. We need a new path and anyone who calls for exploiting one class to benefit another should be subject to life imprisonment where they can enjoy carefree and tax-free living in a world of equality.

Shortage of Chickens


Armstrong Economics Blog/Agriculture Re-Posted May 5, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

The orchestrated COVID pandemic to change the economy for the BUILD BACK BETTER Great Reset has set in motion food shortages that are now emerging. Farmers have had to plow their crops under, and one had to kill over 30,000 chickens because they simply could not get them to market. Sales of produced collapsed as much as 75% in 2020 compared to 2019 in some areas. Even in Europe, the cold weather has destroyed crops. As I have said, these morons look at the world only in a single dimension. They had no idea that locking people down to lower CO2 meant that they were also cutting off the supply chain in technology to food.

There is a shortage now of chickens, and don’t worry, it will move to beef as well. Add their scheme for a cyber attack, and the future looks really crazy because nobody will lock these people up, no less dare to investigate them. So be warned. This will get far worse post-2024. We should all send a thank you note to Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates for starters.

Fake News Knows What It is Doing


Armstrong Economics Blog/Press Re-Posted May 5, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: I wrote to the ________ news and pointed out that you had a computer model that beat all the models that Gates-funded to use to create these lockdowns. They never responded.

HJ

ANSWER: Oh it is worse than that. One of the top five newspapers in the world wanted to write a story about Socrates and its forecasts with respect to COVID. We spoke, and then two weeks later, the powers from above said NO!

It is not a question of them not being aware. They know precisely about Socrates, yet the powers that be give directions not to cover Socrates, for it goes against the narrative. Perhaps if enough people wrote to Fox or the Hill, they might report something. But they too are afraid of stepping into this mess, for they might drown in a swamp filled with quicksand.

Supply v Demand – Does It Always Work?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Agriculture Re-Posted May 5, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, You say that wheat fell during the Great Depression during the Dust Bowl when supply would have declined. This makes no sense. Would you address that question?

KL

ANSWER: Your problem is typical in analysis. It appears that 99% of the people always try to reduce some event to a single cause and effect. Everything is connected like a line of dominoes. You are not just pushing over a single one. The action has a ripple effect that moves through the entire world economy and is not even restricted to a single nation.

I do not make stuff up to try to prove a point. I have been curious to discover how things really work. When I say we have the largest database in the world, I am not joking. Just as I have been a collector of various things, that includes data. It is easy to find a yearly chart of wheat, but not daily or weekly during that period. Here is how wheat responded during the Great Depression on a weekly basis. Note that it peaked about 4 weeks before the stock market. Then you see a huge gap down in 1931.

This was caused by the wholesale defaults of just about every nation. Some went into a moratorium and suspended payments on their debt like Britain. But most outright defaulted and you can buy their bonds usually on eBay.

Here is the impact of the 1931 Sovereign Debt Crisis. The dollar soared on our index from roughly the 112 level to nearly 160. That was high which exceeded even World War I levels. That illustrates just how high the dollar rallied. Because wheat was priced in dollars, it fell in terms of dollars while rising in terms of other currencies because of their defaults.

The Federal Reserve raised rates in 1931 during the Depression because they feared that the dollar would collapse because confidence in government globally collapsed.

Now, look at the unemployment. It soared as well. Because people lost their jobs, demand declined with supply. So you see, this is a far more complex issue than meets the eye. It is also why I say governments should NEVER be allowed to manipulate the economy. They always focus on a single cause and effect and never look at the whole.

Consequently, while supply contracts, your assumption that price should rise is predicated upon demand remaining the same or rising. Therein lies your answer. That is simply a false assumption.

Melinda Gates to Divorce Bill – Hallelujah


Armstrong Economics Blog/Disease Re-Posted May 3, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Bill and Melinda Gates are filing for divorce. The inside scoop is she has not been happy with his direction of changing the world and all the hate mail directed at them. It was really just a question of time. What Bill Gates has set out to force the world to ZERO CO2 and to reduce the population has gradually eaten away at Melinda. Some suggest that she has an inner conscious about humanity which is absent from Bill. This will be a most interesting DIVORCE for it seems to actually fit with our models.

I published this forecast on Gates back on May 8, 2020. I warned back then that this was the peak of his eighth 8.6-year wave which hit April 28th, 2020. Gates’ and Schwab’s attempt to take over the world using scare tactics is a very dangerous proposition. I warned that the “ideal peak in his power may have taken place on April 28th and that is good news for us. If this proves correct, he should be in for a fall in prestige and power going into 2024.”

His divorce is actually coming right on target. It is actually a welcome piece of news that his wife is divorcing him. It pretty much confirms that the peak in his power was indeed April 2020 when he launched this Great Reset. Perhaps all the hatred being poured out against Gates has finally made Melinda see the real person that he is – a very dangerous individual. The peak of his 8.6-year personal cycle also marked 26 years of his marriage.

Hallelujah – the Self-Annoited Health Czar of the World has reached his peak!

THE NEXT ENDLESS FRAUD / SCAM ON THE PROPAGANDA SCREENS | FEEL GUILTY FOR LIVING


Great Reset & Fake Pandemic


Armstrong Economics Blog/Disease Re-Posted Apr 29, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Marty,

It’s one thing to steal an election, create a border crisis(when there was none) and then orchestrate an alleged attack on the Capitol, thus creating the perfect recipe for another attempt at impeachment.

But with complications now surfacing with these vaccines(and follow on boosters, which by design are to ensure a continuous feed of data into Big Tech), it appears the Lockdown states are now confronted with a serious dilemma: how to explain the drop in Covid cases and deaths in the non-Lockdown states, many of which have dropped the mask mandates. These same Lockdown states, which are pushing the vaccine, are seeing no relief, populations fleeing, and more coercive policies possibly being put into place.

This brings us to Biden’s threat yesterday stating there will be no 4th of July celebrations if not enough people sign up for the vaccine! So, what is not mandated now becomes a threat of retaliation. Against everyone. Not just the vaxxers.

Is there any doubt Biden wants to shut down the economy again, following the lead of Europe? He is trapped by the promise of the vaccine with the reopening. But Europe can’t(or won’t) with problems surrounding vaccine safety and availability. And Europe’s success in the lockdown hinges on its practice in the US.

Marty, you mentioned something happening late summer. This seems right. Perhaps it is renewed crisis overseas, perhaps vaccine fatigue setting in, perhaps resistance building nationwide against wearing masks. It may even be more racial strife…we don’t know…Whatever the cause(s), it seems to me we are getting closer to some inflection point, people beginning to fight back, government sense they are losing the PR battle(Fauci…overexposed, mendacious, a serial liar)….and perhaps major problems surfacing with the vaccines…deaths, complications, which work against the architects of this scam. The tease of reopening foreign travel looks fleeting….people are staying domestic… which means people moving around…and nothing the government can do about it…..looks to me like this idiot(B) will declare some kind of national emergency…watch!

REPLY: August is, for some reason, a period when war and civil unrest rise. It often marks major highs in markets around Labor Day, like September 3, 1929, and so many others. This is not about health; it is all about climate change. The Panic Cycles we see and the chaos between August-September may very well be domestic civil unrest, most likely starting in Europe. Literally, thousands of people are contracting COVID after being vaccinated, and some are still dying. The CDC admits over 70 people have died after being vaccinated by COVID.

The politicians have used this virus for political gains to shut down the economy and reduce CO2. The WEF has been boasting that the lockdowns are working in saving the planet. Meanwhile, they are destroying civilization, and the future people thought they were entitled to. This will come to a head, and perhaps the August-September timeframe will be the time of reckoning.

The Real Danger of BigTech Censorship


Armstrong Economics Blog/Press Re-Posted Apr 28, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

When the oligarchs assassinated Caesar and Cicero put out a never-ending onslaught against Gaius Julius Caesar (100-44 BC), Brutus (85-32 BC) issued a coin promoting that he killed Caesar on the Ides of March for the people. This was an early propaganda coin. However, in fact, the people supported Caesar against the oligarchy.

The Senate had to flee Rome because the people did not support them. Their champion was Caesar – not Cicero and Brutus. As for Brutus, Suetonius (Divus Augustus, 13) says that his head was sent to Rome to be thrown at the feet of Caesar’s statue.

Perhaps the greatest of all fake news reporters was none other than Cicero (104-43 BC). He was an Optimat (Oligarch) and thus was against Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) who was a member of the Populares (for the People) rather than the Oligarchs. The leader of the Optimates was none other than Cato. It was Plutarch who reported that when a friend of Cicero remarked that the constellation of Lybra was due to rise the next day, Cicero snapped – “Yes, by edict.”

This is merely an example that the Optimates were constantly complaining about every reform Caesar would make including the calendar which they would bribe the priest to delay elections. Because of the fake news of Cicero, even Shakespeare bought into it and painted Julius Caesar as a ruthless dictator. However, when Caesar crossed the Rubicon, the cities all cheered and opened their gates. The Optimates had no support of the people for they were exploiting the Republic since they were the Oligarchs. It was Cato who instigated the Civil War.

Cicero paid not just with his life, but they cut off his hands and nailed them with his head on the Rostra in the Forum Romanum according to the tradition. According to Cassius Dio, Marc Antony’s wife Fulvia took Cicero’s head, pulled out his tongue, and jabbed it repeatedly with her hairpin in an act of final revenge against Cicero’s power of speech.

Every ruthless government in history has used the media for propaganda. This has been an ancient practice. Following the death of Nero, that was the end of the Julio-Claudian line. People jumped for joy and may believe that the Republic would then be restored. This is also when the Jews rebelled and thought they could now move to be independent and exist the Roman Empire. After a civil war, the military general Vespasian (69-79 AD) rose to power defeating his rivals. The Romans used the reverse side of the coins as newspapers announcing various events and victories. Vespasian had to crush the Jews or risk that other previous conquered lands might try the same solution of rebellion. The coinage of Vespasian marked the defeat of Judea and he proudly announced – “CAPTIA” proclaiming their defeat as a warning to all other provinces.

In October 1943, French citizens awoke to find the streets of Paris were littered with the United States $1 Silver Certificates of 1935. The French were overjoyed believing that Americans from the land where the streets were paved in gold,  had showered them with dollar bills following the defeat of the German occupation forces. However, upon close examination, not only did all the bills have the same serial number Y91033384A, but they unfolded, and inside was propaganda.

The front and the back of the folded leaflet were excellent reproductions of the genuine one-dollar bills. Inside was a vicious attack upon the United States and Judaism. The propaganda read:

This dollar is valid only if signed Morgenthau. The Minister of the United States Treasury is the Jew Morgenthau Junior, allied to the big sharks of international finance. All the Jewish symbols appear on this dollar: the Eagle of Israel, the Triangle, the Eye of Jehovah and the thirteen letters of the device, stars of the halo, arrows, olive branches and steps of the unfinished pyramid. This money is certainly Jewish! This dollar has paid for the Jewish war. The only message that the Anglo-Americans are able to address to us is: Will this dollar be enough to compensate us for the sorrows caused by the Jewish war? Money has no smell … but the Jew has one!”

Propaganda has been a powerful tool that has torn society apart and always seeks to divide and conquer.

This is the danger that mainstream media now threatens our very future. They are shameless and never reflect that what they are doing leads only to one conclusion. Why is CNN, the New York Times, and The Washington Post, the leaders of this cabal, joined by ABC, CBS, and NBC, acting in such a treasonous manner? What is the end objective? Sterilized genocide to save the planet? Chelsea Clinton, who Hillary is grooming for 2024, is now openly calling on Facebook to SILENCE Tucker Carlson. Such a move shows a complete disregard for the First Amendment and even Bill Gates advocating silencing all his critics — the “crazies” he calls them. Anyone who advocates silencing their opposition is a traitor to everything the American dream and Constitution stood for and generations were asked to lay down their lives to protect. These people have no place in a democratic society.

Free speech protected by the First Amendment. This means that I must respect that even Communists have a right to speak, for if I do not defend their right to speak, then I myself have no right to speak. Silencing the opposition is ruthless tyranny. Just look at history. It warns us of people like Chelsea Clinton and Bill Gates.
