Half of Europe’s Small Businesses Fear They Cannot Survive


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics re-Posted Oct 23, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

Business confidence in Europe is in crash mode. Over half of Europe’s small firms fear for survival, survey finds. They seem to be correct. This Great Reset is designed to crush the economy and rebuilding it if “green” from the bottom. They label anything that dares to say the obvious as a “conspiracy theory” so they need not answer any of this. A “conspiracy theory” was something that was not remotely possible and was way out there beyond even alien abductions. Here, we need only take what they are saying and ask are politicians this stupid that they cannot see what they are doing to the average person?

The authoritative actions of politicians and the forced denial of human rights are far worse than if we were invaded by a foreign power. Khrushchev was correct, but it is not the lower classes doing this, it is the academics in league with the Big Tech companies offering technology to track every person to prevent any possible uprising in the future.

Endless Corruption Everywhere you Turn


Armstrong Economics Blog/Corruption Re-Posted Oct 20, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT:  Good Morning Martin,
We are all thoroughly disgusted about everything you blog about.
Amazon’s policy on books is the beginning of the end (I hope) for Amazon. A breakup is obviously needed to make the company respectful to the people.
Please consider this. Your new book “The Cycle of War and the Coronavirus” should be distributed to your clients and subscribers. The hassle of mailing them all out yourself is a major problem. I know. I feel your frustration. Perhaps charge a big shipping fee to cover the cost of hiring one person to do the job. Or find a company to replace Amazon. I am sure there is a trustworthy company that can handle the job of sales processing and shipping.
OK. Have a great day…….Take care.

REPLY: I am coming to the conclusion that the endless delays by the publisher with no reasonable explanation other than the usual COVID nonsense, leave me to believe that because the book has on the cover Soros and Gates, it is somehow off in limbo with endless delays. The book was ready back in May. I will have it printed directly. This entire world is turning so Nazi-like with censorship, blocking books, and what will be the attempted theft of the election, I know the computer forecast this would be the most corrupt election in American History, but this is even far beyond what I ever expected was even possible.

Canadian Internment Camps

COMMENT: Hi Martin,
I’m in Canada and we just got back from a trip to the USA. I just read your post “New Bill Gives Immunity to Military Over Australians During Emergencies & Canada Internment Camps”.
They do indeed have camps for us! But they aren’t JUST for international travelers who don’t have a place to quarantine. I received a form from customs officers that say if we violate any part of the quarantine measures we will be transferred “to a quarantine facility”. I took screenshots of the form if you would like to share with others, I just don’t know how to send you the photos.
Thanks!

REPLY: Thank you. We have a lot of Canadians who need to know.

New Zealand Suffers from Fake News & Propaganda


Armstrong Economics Blog/Press Re-Posted Oct 19, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

In New Zealand, you can see this press interview is extremely hostile and she shuts down any mention that the death rate of COVID-19 is not greater than other viruses which she will not allow him to say and calls it “rubbish” proving she is by no means a real journalist. Once upon a time, the press was our defenders. Now, they are a wholesale part of the effort to deny our freedoms.Categories:Press

Social Media Trying to Destroy our Freedom


Armstrong Economics Blog/Conspiracy Re-Posted Oct 19, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

I was preparing to add a chapter on what is becoming the Greatest Political Manipulation in world history to the Manipulating the World Economy, which would be about the US 2020 election and the COVID-19 world lockdown to further the Great Reset. Now even Amazon is reserving its right to ban any book that is critical of coronavirus lockdown. We have entered the era where history repeats like the Nazi book burning. Even Elon Musk has come out against Amazon.

I warned that the computer projected this would be the MOST politically corrupt election in American history. NEVER in my personal imagination would I have EVER assumed that the high-tech companies would be conspiring against our freedom. They are simply greedy. They are following this Marxist Utopia and think that they will be exempt and get a piece of every transaction in the entire world by supporting this move to digital currencies.

I am thoroughly disgusted. The election in the Roman Republic of 53BC was always on my top 10 list of corrupt elections in history. The elections of 53BC effectively degenerated into a bidding war between the various factions. Under the pretense of helping candidates with their expenses, the bottom line was simple bribery. We know from various contemporary authors of the time that the intense bribery caused interest rates to jump from 4% to 8% during those elections. This bidding war was so serious that the Senate of Rome was forced to act because it became so public.

Another in the top ten list of corrupt elections was that of 192AD when the Praetorian Guard murdered Emperor Pertinax and paraded his head on a pole around the city. Following the murder of Pertinax by the Praetorian Guards, the full corruption of Rome burst forth. The Guards withdrew to the safety of their camp. No clear heir was available so the Guards stationed heralds on the wall to announce openly that the office of Emperor was up for sale to the highest bidder.

Thus began perhaps the most scandalous affair in Roman history. The corruption had reached such levels that it was clear that the decline and fall of the Roman Empire began at this junction in time. There were two rival bidders who presented themselves – Titus Flavius Sulpicianus (father-in-law of Pertinax) and Marcus Didius Julianus. It was Didius’ bid of 25,000 sestertii per man, which was the high bid and he was duly declared Emperor. However, Didius Julianus quickly found himself in serious trouble. The treasury had been depleted much more so than he had expected under CommodusDidius began to reduce the weight of the coinage trying to stretch the reserves as far as possible. The outrage led to a civil war.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever imagined that such a coordinated political coup to remove Trump in order to force this global Great Reset upon the world with this new age of “equality” which is Marxism with the same claims as they have always been – inclusion and equality. Even Lenin called them “empty phrase-mongering” and he argued that the Socialists were really gathering power for the elite. In that respect, he was correct.

If you listen to the words of Klaus Schwab, you will hear those same empty promises of equality. He will not surrender all his wealth. Nor will Bill Gates, George Soros, or the high tech social media moguls. Somehow the people are supposed to rise up and overthrow Trump to achieve equality by surrendering all our rights, accept perpetual lockdowns, live on Guaranteed Basic Income, and sit at home to watch TV, News, and read books that are all going to be sanitized to protect us – the same as the Nazi book burning to protect us from evil thoughts. If you listen to the same speech just delivered also ahead of the US election by the IMF which seeks to control the one-world digital currency, you hear the very same agenda of inclusion and equality. Somehow, that never eliminates the rich and powerful oligarchs who then see themselves as necessary to ensure quality for those of us beneath them – the great unwashed.

The problem with the left is always the same. They are NOT satisfied in life unless they force everyone else to live as they command. Yet they still want to have the power to enforce their commands.

I have never met Elon Musk. He has called for the breakup of Amazon. I would love to meet him. He seems to be one person defending also our freedom. At this stage in the game, I do not know if enough people will see the truth and vote for Trump to stop this agenda. A Trump victory would place Social Media as the target for criminal prosecution for doing what they all accused Russia of doing but in spades! It is becoming very clear that these organizations have become a threat to our very freedom.

New Bill Gives Immunity to Military Over Australians During Emergencies & Canada Internment Camps


Armstrong Economics Blog/Disease Re-Posted Oct 19, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

The entire purpose of lockdowns was supposed to flatten the curve because so many people would get sick and die in the millions, there would not be enough bed space. They keep changing the excuse to keep the power going continually. Welcome to what Authoritarian/Totalitarianism looks like in the 21st century. A new bill has been introduced in the Australian federal parliament that gives civil and criminal immunity to foreign military forces and police operating in Australia during an emergency which is obviously this hyped COVID-19 and could even be bushfires. The Defence Legislation Amendment (Enhancement of Defence Force Response to Emergencies) Bill 2020 amends the Defence Act 1903 and the Defence Reserve Service (Protection) Act 2001 (DRSP Act) to allow members of the Australia Defence Force (ADF) Reserves, to be called in and to be given total immunity for performing duties that they may be called upon to do. The bill will also grant immunities to members of the ADF, as well as all other defense personnel, and members of even foreign forces called on during a civil emergency.

Meanwhile, in Canada, they are creating quasi-interment camps. An Ontario politician condemned the Canadian federal government’s Covid-19 quarantine sites as “internment camps” which has led to the presumption that they intend to jail Canadians. I have even heard the rumors that you can call them and say you think someone has COVID-19 and they will be sent off the jail. These statements are generally false at this moment. However, the sites do exist and are facilities rented by the federal government for “travelers” who have NO alternative for mandatory quarantine. The danger with this is very clear, it opens the door to forced quarantines as in New Zealand. In Thailand, you must quarantine for 2 weeks in a hotel designated by the government at your own expense.

The Director of the CDC said: “But there has been another cost that we’ve seen, particularly in high schools.” Mr. Redfield continued: “We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID. We’re seeing far greater deaths from a drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing the deaths from COVID. So this is why I keep coming back for the overall social being of individuals, is let’s all work together and find out how we can find common ground to get these schools open in a way that people are comfortable and their safe.”

There has been a lot of turmoil about just how many people have died from COVID. The problem stems from the fact that they have other diseases and perhaps COVID has pushed them over the edge. Of those under 55, only 14,047 people have died WITH COVID at the start of September but with other complications according to the CDC Table #3.  Twitter and everyone else is removing comments quoting the CDC that only: “For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned.” They are trying to keep the fear factor going.

The Protest Cycle


Armstrong Economics Blog/Civil Unrest Re-Posted Oct 19, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

Protests are continuing in Europe. This was the one in London this weekend. Boris Johnson is adopting the measures of the Madman of Australia. We are looking at a rising spiral of civil unrest especially because they will continue to use this virus to extinguish all human rights.

Our ideal target for the start of this escalating cycle of civil unrest (protests against lockdowns) was 2020.563 which was June 24/25, 2020 and the end of this cycle will be about October 30th, 2026. On June 12, in Lebanon, their currency collapsed because of COVID and many Lebanese citizens took to the streets for anti-government protests. The protesters set up burning barricades and forced road closures. As some protesters threw rocks at police, others tried to climb the security fence surrounding the Prime Minister’s house. On June 30, China officially passed the controversial national security law which affected Hong Kong through a loophole in its constitution. This led to more protests but this was not COVID oriented.

Following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody on May 26, 2020, protests began the next day. But because of COVID and the loss of jobs, this allowed people to attend all over in far greater numbers than ever before. There were even protests in Amsterdam on June 1, 2020.

This cycle of protests and violence will escalate. As a direct result of COVID and job losses, people are free to protest now in mass.
