Facebook Hearings Parody

Armstrong Economics Blog/Humor Re-Posted Oct 16, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

The usually left-leaning Saturday Night Live mocked the recent Facebook whistleblower testimony. Although it is still left-leaning, the writers must have realized that most US lawmakers are completely out of touch with reality and the very issues they make decisions on. They display false outrage but fail to act. “What Facebook has done is disgraceful, and you better believe Congress will be taking action right after we pass the infrastructure bill, raise the debt ceiling, prosecute those responsible for the January 6 insurrection, and stop Trump from using executive privilege, even though he’s no longer president. But after all that, you watch out, Facebook,” Senator Dianne Feinstein’s character commented.

It would be funny if it were not true, and I contemplate whether to categorize this as humor. In the skit, Senator John Neely Kennedy’s character was perplexed by the Facebook algorithm, and well, algorithms in general. “You’ve told us a lot of disturbing information about this so-called ‘algorithm.’ I just want to clear up a few points… Where is it? Do you have it with you now?” he questioned. I have faced similar interrogations over Socrates’ algorithm. The government wants what they cannot have and do not understand. These are the people we are expected to trust to dictate our future.

Did Klaus Schwab and World Economic Forum Admit The COVID Vaccine Injects Traceable Markers? Their Promoted “COVIDPass” Blood Test Requires Them

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on October 16, 2021 | Sundance | 158 Comments

An article and video promoted by the World Economic Forum, intended to propose and outline a globally accepted “COVIDPass”, actually reveals stunning background admissions. [Article Here – VIDEO Below]

The basic premise of the proposal is for a global COVIDPass that will be universally accepted permitting vaccinated people to travel around the world and enter all venues and facilities that require proof of vaccine.   However, there is something in the proposal that tells a story all by itself.  First, WATCH the Video:

.Don’t get caught up in the esoteric weeds about the COVID passport angle of this; and don’t let yourself focus on the vaxxed vs non-vaxxed aspect.  Additionally, for now do not focus on the privacy aspects or the issues with tracing or tracking.  Instead, focus like a laser on something far more critical in the background of the proposal itself.

The entire premise of the World Economic Forum’s “COVIDPass” is predicated on a blood test being able to identify whether a person has been vaccinated or not.

Think about that carefully.

Think about that deeply.

Right now, all vaccination ID’s, all COVID passports, are dependent on a registration process that takes place at the time of vaccination within each nation’s unique healthcare system:

(1) You get vaccinated, you get registered in a system that shows you have been vaccinated; and that’s how you eventually get to a place where you establish a linked “QR” code to the vaccination registration -most commonly on your cell phone- that grants you permitted access at checkpoints or gateways.


(2) You get vaccinated, you get registered in a system that shows you have been vaccinated; and you are given a paper vaccination card to carry on your person that grants you permitted access at checkpoints or gateways.

Those are essentially the only two registration systems for COVID passports currently in place. Both of them are dependent on registration with the healthcare system or provider who then grants you the paper ID; or triggers the authorization process to connect your vaccination status to a system where you download the QR code.

Regardless of which process is followed, the registration is with the healthcare system.

What the World Economic Forum (WEF) is describing is NOT that…. and this is the critical point.

The WEF proposal is based on a blood sample, or a blood test, to prove you have been vaccinated.  The only way that is possible is if the vaccine itself carries some form of marker that permanently stays (at a cellular level) in your body which can then be detected in a blood test.

If the vaccine does not leave an identifiable marker or imprint in your blood, then a blood test for vaccinated status would not be possible.

If you understand that critical point, then keep reading.  If you don’t understand the significance of that point, then it’s best to just quit right here.

♦ If you were to go into a doctors office, blood lab or hospital right now and tell them you needed a blood test to prove you have been vaccinated, they would look at you like you’re a crazy person.  Their response would be for you to contact your healthcare provider -where the vaccine shot was given- to get the verification or duplicate authentication you would need to prove you have been vaccinated.

Yet somehow the World Economic Forum knows of a process for testing blood to see if the vaccine is present?

Think about that.

Let’s call whatever is in your blood system a “marker“, because generically we do not know what they would specifically be looking for to isolate blood as vaccinated -vs- non vaccinated.  They are looking for something, so let’s call that a marker.  That means the following points are evident:

  • Whatever that marker is, has to be present in all versions of the vaccine.
  • Whatever that marker is, has to be present permanently.
  • Whatever that marker is, was known by the World Economic Forum to exist prior to this proposal.

Without a way to identify vaccinated blood, the entire premise of the COVIDPass proposed by the WEF is moot.

So, the question becomes: what is that marker?

Without extrapolating into conspiracy theory or suspicious imaginings, the basic point to drive home from this WEF proposal is their awareness of a blood test that can guarantee you have been vaccinated.  [The next step, where your blood test is linked to your unique identification for authenticity in society, is another kettle of fish altogether.]

COMMON SENSE – Factually it would defeat the entire premise of the COVIDPass as outlined if your unique id was not being traced/tracked.

If, as an example, I were to use your cell phone QR code at the boarding gate of an international flight, there would have to be some cross referenced database that pulls up your unique identification in order to stop me from traveling under your vaccinated status.

Under the concept of a globally accepted, bloodline-authenticated vaccination ID, there has to be a central database from which your vaccination identification -your blood- was registered to your specific personage.  But that’s going further into the future.

For now, it is worth noting that in mid-2020, even before the various vaccine’s deployed in clinical trials, the World Economic Forum knew that a blood test for a COVID vaccination was the best scenario for vaccine passport identification.  [Article Here]

Lies, Lies & More Lies from the Financial Press

Armstrong Economics Blog/Press Re-Posted Oct 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Marty; the Fed quietly published the banks it was funding in the Repo Crisis. I just wanted to say, you are always right. The press claimed it was tax time, but you said it was the crisis in European banks. Your sources are always spot on. Thanks for the light of truth.


REPLY: Yes, that story that the liquidity crisis occurred because US corporations withdrew large amounts from the banks in order to make quarterly tax payments was the most absurd propaganda I ever heard. Why then do we not see the same liquidity crisis event during tax season?

The bulk of the loans covered foreign banks, as well as Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Securities. It was all driven by the simple fact that Merkel said there would be no bailout for Deutsche Bank, which was the major derivatives counterparty problem involving Wall Street. Deutsche Bank had a major derivatives book, and if it failed, it would have taken down US banks. Deutsche Bank was in crisis and then it was too big to merge with Commerzbank. They had to lay off nearly 20,000 staff and a major effort was undertake to try to isolate its toxic assets.

That is why the Fed had to step in as the market maker to bail out Europe for US banks all backed off. I really do not know who makes up these stories to try to hide the truth. But they always do in hopes of preventing panics. This time, the game is up.

Inflation is Hitting Every Sector – Not Transitory

Armstrong Economics Blog/Hyperinflation Re-Posted Oct 13, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: All these increased demands for my product is great, but it comes with quite a wholesale flower prices have also increased significantly making the cost of the arrangements much higher. Wholesale rose prices have jumped 56%. Last year I could buy a pack of 25 roses for $18, where today they cost $28. I have to pass these costs onto my customers, but even with the increased cost people are still buying more flowers this year than the same time last year.


REPLY: Thank you for this info. It is hard to find any industry that is not suffering from a shortage of supply.

BLS Report – 4.3 Million US Workers Voluntarily Quit Their Jobs in August

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on October 12, 2021 | Sundance | 260 Comments

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released the job openings and labor report for August today [DATA HERE].  The data shows that 4.3 million U.S. workers voluntarily quit their jobs in the month of August.  This is a significant jump from prior.

The “Quits” section [Table 4 breakdown] shows quits increased in August to 4.3 million (+242,000). The quits rate increased to a series high of 2.9 percent. Quits increased in accommodation and food services (+157,000); wholesale trade (+26,000); and state and local government education (+25,000). Quits decreased in real estate and rental and leasing (-23,000). The number of quits increased in the South and Midwest regions:

While this data is interesting and significant, it is only one data point within the larger U.S. main street economy.  Rather than me extrapolating on this data, I would like to hear your perspective based on your own local feeling about what is going on in your area.

Key points of reference would include:

  • While this is potentially related to vaccine mandates, the time frame in August is before the Biden mandatory vaccination requirement made on September 9th.
  • Housing prices overall (macro level) were/are high.  There is a lot more home equity amid working class families who own homes.  This could translate to a greater ability to change jobs or cash out for  a longer financial plan.
  • Workers in the real estate and leasing segment did not quit.
  • The highest quit rates were in the regions with the lowest cost of living.
  • Inflation is massive

I am interested to read your opinions on what could potentially be the largest contributing factor based on your town, city or neighborhood.

Ignore the financial pundits.  The question is: what do you make of this?

Jennifer Psaki was asked about this quit jump and she was poorly briefed in order to answer the question.  She is clueless.

Airline and Transportation Group, US Freedom Flyers, Speak Out Against COVID-19 Forced Vaccinations

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on October 11, 2021 | Sundance | 216 Comments

A group of transportation workers led by airline pilots speak out about the danger of forced medical procedures represented by the the vaccine mandate.  This video from US Freedom Flyers might help explain the current airline industry issues that have recently been in the news.   From their website:

“We are a group of transportation professionals representing the air, rail, and trucking industries who are spearheading efforts to protect medical health freedom. Our goal is to push back against the US government’s threats of vaccine mandates for private businesses. We know this effort is not simply a matter of employees versus companies, but citizens opposing illegal and tyranical mandates by the US government.” (link)

“US Freedom Flyers is a group of transportation industry employees who have come together to fight federal and state mandates which aim to strip Citizens of their right to medical freedom. Together, in partnership with Health Freedom Defense Fund and The Davillier Law Group, we lead to preserve Informed Consent and defend Constitutional rights.” (read more)

The co-founder of US Freedom Flyers, Joshua Yoder, appeared on Fox News with Tucker Carlson earlier this evening to discuss:

As we previously outlined, this is not about vaccines per se’, this is more about a slippery slope of having the government dictate how you can live your life and earn a living.

If they can force you to have a medical procedure, and then carry documentation of that procedure in order to work… why can’t they force you to get a small electronic implant of your identification, which would coincidentally include your medical authorizations for work?

It’s just a metal detector…. it’s just taking off your shoes… it’s just wearing a mask…. it’s just a vaccination….. it’s just a COVID passport… it’s always, “just”.

Factually I do not believe a federal mandate for a vaccine is even possible or legal. It appears to me that all of Biden’s threats in this regard are simply that, threats.

The purpose of the threat is to push people to take the vaccine without actually attempting a legal federal mandate; and that approach so far has been successful.  However, now they are going to encounter the more hard-core groups who will not concede liberty or freedom to a federal mandate.

It is obvious Anthony Fauci also knows a federal mandate will lose in court when challenged.  The fact that Fauci brings up state vaccination requirements for education, as examples of historically forced vaccinations is both a strawman argument and structurally false.  There has never been a FEDERAL mandate for any vaccination.  All the vaccinations Fauci discusses (ex. his kids) were state mandates.  Each state also has a different set of standards and laws for children and vaccines.  There is nothing federal.

The federal government is attempting to set up a federal work authorization standard for private businesses.  Non compliance means you cannot work, or you lose your existing job if your employer goes along with the government demand. THAT alone should alarm everyone.

Stew Peters Interviews LA Port Worker To Get Ground Report on Cargo Ship Backlog

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on October 11, 2021 | Sundance | 320 Comments

An anonymous worker from the West Coast Port of Los Angeles came forward on “The Stew Peters Show” to discuss the claimed issues around the cargo ship backlogs.  {Direct Rumble Link} As the port worker noted, based on his 18-years working there, there is no supply disruption on the unloading end of the supply chain; though they are a little backed-up, but the port is offloading at a high capacity.

The interview is interesting because the ground report contradicts the popular narrative about COVID impacts on the current supply chain.  There are ample goods flowing into the supply chain from the ports, yet there are claims of shortages at the warehouse and distribution level. WATCH

Stew Peters accurately reminds his audience that no nation generates and exports as much raw material foodstuff as the United States.   This is a key point seemingly overlooked by most media.  The U.S. exports around $73 billion in food products annually. The next closest food export nation Germany isn’t even close at $34 billion.

In very general terms, about one-third of U.S. food exports are North/Central America (Canada, Mexico, etc) exports; approximately one-third go west (Asia) and about one-third go east (Europe).   There have been no reported issues with those shipments departing the U.S.

However, one point worth noting, by the LA dock worker, is the influence of predictive orders or automated-purchases based on historic norms and patterns.  I think that overheard note by the worker was somewhat misconstrued, and a correct interpretation could explain part of the backlog of container vessels offshore.

It is technically correct that large multinational importers use AI (artificial intelligence) to predict orders.  However, it’s not something weird or as complex as it sounds.  As supply chains have optimized computer assisted ordering has become the norm, you might have heard it referenced as ‘automated replenishment’.

Essentially, decades of manufacturer, retail or consumer scan data for all kinds of goods create a historic reference point for inventory needs.  Large retailers use automated ordering to restock their warehouses with raw materials, interim assembly products (parts), and also finished goods.  Prior sales data helps to determine or predict future ordering needs.

The advent of technology tracking has thinned the supply chain to a process of ‘just-in-time’ replenishment.  This is JIT inventory management and now how most companies operate.  The goal for Just In Time (JIT) inventory is for the new stuff to arrive just as the last of the old stuff is distributed or sold.  This means you don’t have to carry excess inventory or tie up money in material waiting for consumer sales or manufacturing use.

AI automated purchasing is just a larger scale version of JIT.  People involved in the supply chains and logistics simply facilitate and tweek the arrival/departure times by coordinating with suppliers and distribution on a frequency schedule.  You watch the supply chain and make requests for slight modifications as you take daily use or sales information into account.

It’s not totally or fully automated; it’s more akin to computer assisted depending on the type of product being managed.   However, it does become more automated every year, and there are less and less people who remember the olden ways of making predictive purchases/orders with human brain power instead of computer assistance.

That said…..  Think about the economy suddenly grinding to a halt.  Which, we will remind people, CTH said happened quietly at the end of May of this year.

April and May of this year was when the first batch of stunningly fast inflation prices on food, energy and gasoline hit the checkbook of working-class Americans like a thundershock.  At the end of May and beginning of June the data was clear.  We were seeing our first double digit inflation months in recent memory.

So, think about the impact of that massive first round of Biden inflation hitting the wages of 70% of American workers all at once.  Spending priorities immediately change.  Disposable income immediately shrinks.  Consumer purchasing patterns immediately shift.

The consumer impact is sudden.  However, the supply chain impact is more akin to slowing down a freight train with thousands of boxcars.  It takes time.

What I would say, based on my experience in overlay with the conversation with the dock worker (Stew Peter interview), is that many of those off shore container vessels are full of goods that have already slowed at the consumption end.  People have stopped buying some stuff, some types of goods, and those ships are carrying cargo that is no longer needed within the supply chain…. at least not at the rate within the automated replenishment system.

Part of the reason for the excessive container ships could simply be a reflection of a U.S. economy that has slowed so drastically that inbound durable goods are not needed by those on the destination side.  As a consequence, there’s no rush for the importing corporation to take immediate control of the inventory.

This outlook would also explain why the worker was saying some of the delivery containers are just being stored full of goods without being distributed; and why the executives within the LA port were leasing additional storage space to house containers that were in no hurry to get picked up.

Back when import wholesalers were more important because they distributed to a larger population of smaller retailers, when this type of a scenario unfolded the importers then begin prioritizing durable good cargo that was needed more urgently, and they delayed the off-loading of durable good cargo that was less urgent.   In modern days, there are less ‘wholesalers’ because small retailers have been replaced by massive multinational corporations and giant box stores.  Those big corporations have their own in-house purchasing, supply chain and inventory management specialists.

[Note: Perishable cargo and fuel oil always get a priority offload regardless when they arrive in the port system.]

I can make a few calls and trace this down, but I suspect that’s essentially what is driving a significant portion of this backlog of cargo container ships that are not in a hurry to offload.  Keep in mind, with Joe Biden inflation going bananas, that durable good inventory is going up in value even as it sits there idle.  So unlike times when purchasing agents desperately need to turn the merchandise to get their profit, an increasing static inventory valuation simply becomes another reason for a multinational to be okay with any port delay.

If my suspicions are correct, that also means the U.S. economy is in much worse shape than financial media are reporting… another reason for the media to avoid telling the story of cargo vessels and instead deflect the story to imaginary COVID-19 supply chain disruptions.  So there’s that.
