Trump Releases the Raw 60 Minute Interview


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Oct 22, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

Trump released the 60 minute interview before it airs. This will be interesting to how they edit it. That is the reason he has released it. Leslie attacks Trump over masks, yet even the Washington Post admits that masks do not work and the evidence from 1918 shows they did not work.

Mark Meadows Informs Court President Authorized Declassification of Documents Did Not Order It…

Federal Judge Reggie Walton saw an opportunity to give media (Buzzfeed and CNN) their request for all documents from the Weissmann/Mueller investigation when President Trump wrote a tweet on October 6, 2020, re-emphasizing declassification.  Seemingly Judge Walton wanted to interpret the tweets as authority for the declassification of material underlying the Mueller probe.   As a consequence Walton asked for clarification from White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

Mr. Meadows responded to the request from the court with a one-page statement:

Meadows affirmed that President Trump was just re-authorizing AG Bill Barr to execute the same declassification authorities previously granted on May 23, 2019.   The president’s tweets were not “orders”.   Judge Walton has scheduled a hearing for Wednesday to address the sufficiency of the White House’s response.

Homeland Security Creates National Center for Countering Human Trafficking – Media Run Away (Literally)…


Posted originally on The Conservative Tree House on October 20, 2020 by sundance

Earlier today the U.S. Department of Homeland Security launched the first ever national Center for Countering Human Trafficking (CCHT), and DHS Secretary Chad Wolf held a 30 minute press availability (remarks here) to announce the new federal agency.

The DHS press release is HERE and the White House press release is HERE.  However, in a stark example of how liberal media refuse to discuss this topic; perhaps motivated to protect their Hollywood allies who participate in sexploitation; and perhaps because major Democrat donors are connected to the human trafficking industry; check out what happens when DHS officials open up the Q&A portion: [36:39 of video – prompted]

Not a single question from the media about the new federal agency. Total silence. Nothing. Not a single question about what is now commonly accepted as a national crisis and modern day slavery.  The DC/National media are totally disinterested…. Let that settle in.

WASHINGTON—U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Acting Secretary Chad Wolf announced Tuesday the opening of the DHS Center for Countering Human Trafficking, the U.S. government’s first-ever integrated law enforcement operations center directly supporting federal criminal investigations, victim assistance efforts, intelligence analysis, and outreach and training activities related to human trafficking and forced labor.

The center, which has been operational since early September, is based in Washington and led by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a global leader of criminal investigations into human trafficking and sexual exploitation. The center will be staffed with law enforcement officials from Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and across DHS, as well as subject matter experts and support staff from 16 DHS components—all focused on the “4 Ps” of the center’s mission: prevention, protection, prosecution and partnerships.

“Human trafficking is modern day slavery. There is no other way to say it,” said Acting Secretary Chad Wolf. “The words are strong because the actions are evil. The forms of exploitation, sex trafficking, forced labor, and domestic servitude that constitute human trafficking are antithetical in every way to the principles of human dignity that Americans hold dear. The launch of this Center for Countering Human Trafficking represents the investment of resources, attention, and time by President Trump to combat and dismantle all forms of human trafficking.” (read more)

President Trump Shares a Tarmac Debate Prep Session – Video and Transcript…


Posted originally on The Conservative Tree House on October 20, 2020 by sundance

The new White House communications group is making a big mistake by delaying the uploads of the impromptu pressers.  The problem started about two weeks ago, and has continued to worsen.  This recent example was from yesterday and took 28 hrs to surface.

In this tarmac presser President Trump outlines how the impromptu pressers are part of his debate prep.  He then gives a real-time example.  WATCH:

[Transcript] –  THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody. You know our senator. You know our governor. They’re great — both of them. And they’re doing a terrific job.

We have a big — two speeches today. And we have thousands and thousands of people waiting. There’s never been anything like this, I will say that, with — I’m being very humble. I’ll say that, Jeff. Is that okay? But there’s never been anything like it. We have tremendous crowds. You saw the lines. They formed two days ago.

So we’re going to make two stops. And you’re going to be with us a little bit, and I know you’re going to be with us a little bit.

And we have a very exciting election coming up. We’re doing very well in North Carolina, very well in Florida, very well pretty much everywhere. We’re looking — we’re doing very well. And when people find out really what we’ve done and how good the economy is and how it’s coming back, the numbers are fantastic. So we — we seem to be in very good shape.

Any questions?

Q Stimulus. Can you give us the latest on stimulus talks? On stimulus talks.

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah, we’re having talks today. We’re discussing it today, very solidly. We’ll see what happens.

Q Have you talked with Leader McConnell?

THE PRESIDENT: Nancy Pelosi, at this moment, does not want to do anything that’s going to affect the election. And I think it will affect the election negatively for her.

So we’ll see what happens. But there are talks going on as we speak.

Q Have you talked with Leader McConnell about this?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t want to comment on that. But the Republicans will come along.

Q Mr. President, why did you criticize Dr. Fauci? Does it have anything to do with his high standing in public sentiment?

THE PRESIDENT: No, I think, really, Dr. Fauci is a very nice man, but we let him do what he wants to do. He gets a lot of television. He loves being on television, and we let him do it. Sometimes he says things that are a little bit off, and they get built up, unfortunately.

But he’s a nice guy. I like him. But he’s called a lot of bad calls. He said don’t wear a mask and he said don’t ban China. They were bad calls. He admits that. And I don’t hold that against him. If I did, I wouldn’t have him. I think he’s a nice a guy.

Q Why don’t you fire him?

THE PRESIDENT: Huh?

Q Why not fire him?

THE PRESIDENT: I don’t want to. I don’t want to hurt him. He’s been there for about 350 years. I don’t want to hurt him.

Q You’ve been saying that Dr. Fauci said not to wear a mask, but he’s been saying to wear a mask for months.

THE PRESIDENT: Well, he used to say don’t wear a mask. So, you know, you have people on both sides of it. But I’m okay —

Q So why are you still quoting that?

THE PRESIDENT: Excuse me. I’m okay with masks. I like it. I think it’s good. A lot of people like it. This gentleman has done an incredible job in Arizona, and he’s taken a very tough stand. But he’s let his economy grow. And, frankly, if they would’ve done that in Michigan and various other places, where the governor just shut it down for everybody except for her husband.

His attitude — you know, they had a spike, and he let the spike play. And they were careful. And now your state is really in great shape.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: Thank you, Mr. President. Thank you.

THE PRESIDENT: What a job. So proud of him.

Q Your Chief of Staff said today that there will be a lawsuit filed on Section 230 on the tech companies. Is it your —

THE PRESIDENT: Who said that? Who said that?

Q Mark Meadows said that, as soon as today, there could be a lawsuit filed.

THE PRESIDENT: Well, you know —

Q Is that from the White House?

THE PRESIDENT: — they’ve given — they’ve been given great protection. And when they take down people like Charlie Kirk — you know, Charlie Kirk is a terrific person. And I was — I just heard that he was taken down. And how can you take down Charlie Kirk? He’s mainstream conservative but solid as a rock. He represents a point of view, and he’s putting up something from the New York Post, which is a respected newspaper. I’ll tell you what: The biggest winner in this whole thing is a newspaper called the New York Post, the oldest paper in our country.

So what they have done is really — I’m very proud of them.

Q Are you filing a lawsuit? Or is the campaign filing a lawsuit?

THE PRESIDENT: You’ll be seeing very soon.

Q Mr. President, do you understand that when it comes to the science and a new virus, things change; scientists learn new things and that’s why Fauci and some scientists changed their recommendations?

THE PRESIDENT: You don’t understand. I understand well. You don’t understand, and you never have understood.

Q Is this election going to be a repeat of 2016, given the polls?

THE PRESIDENT: I think so. I think we’ll do better than 2016. We’re way ahead of where we were in 2016, and I’ve done things that nobody has ever done. We built the greatest economy in the world, and we’re building it rapidly again.

If you look at Arizona — you look at the job they’ve done. And I’m just leaving other states. I mean, every one of these Republican-run states are doing phenomenally. The Democrat-run states are not, but they’re not going to affect our numbers very much. I think they’re going to open up on November 4th. They’ll be opening up on November 4th.

And, by the way, the fact that Kristen Welker is, you know, a dyed-in-the-wool radical-left Democrat, or whatever she is —

Q It’s not true, Mr. President, and you know it.

Q That’s not true.

THE PRESIDENT: Okay. Okay. And then ask — why are you defending her?

Q That’s not true, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Then ask her: Why did she delete her account? Would you please have her put her account back?

Q Mr. President, you’ve dealt with her, and you know she’s a fine journalist.

THE PRESIDENT: And you know what? It’s not going to affect — I know you want to stick up. It’s not going to affect me. I’m going to be there. But, you know, I told you about the last one, and I was right. And I told you about Savannah Guthrie, and I was right. And I’m telling you about Kristen Welker. Kristen Welker should put all of her statements back on. She deleted her entire account. She shouldn’t do that.

Q What are they going to do with the mics? Are they trying to have —

THE PRESIDENT: The what?

Q Are they trying to have the moderator be able to turn off the mics? Is that what —

THE PRESIDENT: I have no idea.

Q Mr. President, what are you doing to prepare for the debate, sir?

THE PRESIDENT: I’m doing this.

Q (Inaudible.)

THE PRESIDENT: What am I doing to prepare? I’m doing this. I’ve done — I’ve done very well in debates. And, you know, you do what you do. You just do what you do.

The last debate, I had two on one. I usually have two on one, at least. And I did well in the last debate, and we did well with Savannah Guthrie, based on reports. But all you can do is — look, you know, you go around; we do interviews with you. This is like — I call this “debate prep.” This is actually tougher than a debate, if you want to know the truth.

Q Will you do the testing before the debate? And will you authorize your —

THE PRESIDENT: Say it?

Q Will you do the testing before the debate? And will you au- —

THE PRESIDENT: The testing?

Q Yes, the COVID testing. Will you authorize your doctors to tell us when —

THE PRESIDENT: Sure. I would have no problem with it.

Q — the last negative before you —

THE PRESIDENT: I’m — not only am I free — positive, or whatever — what would you call it? I’m totally free. Right? Not only am I free, I’m immune, they say. They say if you’ve had it, you’re immune. Now, the question is, are you immune for four months or for the rest of your life? That’s the only thing we don’t know.

Q Will you authorize your doctors to tell you when you tested negative last, before the last event?

THE PRESIDENT: Sure. Is that very important to you?

Q Yes, sir, it is.

THE PRESIDENT: You seem to be so intent. But if it’s so important to you — why is it so important to you?

Q Because we want to know how long you may have been —

THE PRESIDENT: I know. But why? Why?

Q We want to know if you followed the rules from the debate commission.

THE PRESIDENT: I know. But why is it so important to you?

Q Will you authorize your doctors to release that information?

THE PRESIDENT: Look at the dedication. Yeah, my doctors have already given it. You know, my doctors have given more information than has been given on any human being in the history of the world.

Q But have not given that detail, Mr. President.

Q Mr. President, can you tell us why — what your campaign strategy seems to be to call Biden a “criminal”? Why is that?

THE PRESIDENT: He is a criminal. He’s a criminal. He got caught —

Q He was the Vice President of the United States.

THE PRESIDENT: Read his laptop. And you know who’s a criminal? You’re a criminal for not reporting it. You are a criminal for not reporting it.

Q I’m asking your strategy.

THE PRESIDENT: Let me tell you something: Joe Biden is a criminal, and he’s been a criminal for a long time. And you’re a criminal, and the media, for not reporting it. Good luck, everybody. Have a good time. Have a good time.

McConnell Announces Full Senate Vote on Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Monday Oct. 26th…


Posted originally on The Conservative Tree House on October 20, 2020 by sundance

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has announced the full senate vote for Supreme Court Nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, will take place next Monday October 26.  The nomination is expected to be voted out of the Senate Judiciary Committee this Thursday.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced Tuesday that the Senate will vote to confirm President Trump’s nominee Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday, Oct. 26.

With a 53-47 majority, and just two Republican senators opposed, Trump’s nominee is on a glide path to confirmation that will seal a conservative hold on the court for years to come.

Without the votes to stop Barrett’s ascent, Democrats have few options left. They are searching for two more GOP senators to break ranks and halt confirmation, but that seems unlikely. Never before as a court nominee been voted on so close to a presidential election.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer decried what he called the “farcical” process to “jam” through Trump’s choice, even as the coronavirus outbreak sidelined GOP senators. (more)

A Blue Wave is Bullish?


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

It seems very strange that Trump was seen as being bullish for stocks, but Wall Street is trying to claim a Blue Wave will be even more bullish under Biden. Even the economist at Bank of America said the best scenario for the stock markets was a Democratic Party clean sweep. This seems to be the talk around Wall Street these days. Perhaps they just want to think positively.

We have laid out all the computer arrays based on the popular vote, Electoral College, the Senate, House, and provided the model on every state. The models are clearly showing a major trend change is coming in 2022. Even if a “Blue Wave” steals the election, there is NO WAY they will hold on beyond 2022.

There is ABSOLUTELY no way we are headed back to normal. This is NOT going away. They are pushing for Digital Currencies very rapidly. The target is still by January 1st. They will default on the debt outside the country by converting everything to perpetual bonds. They may increase the interest rate to some small positive yield. The central banks will simply declare this as capital. It will clean the balance sheets and allow them to start over again with normal interest rates set by credit risk.

We have reached the end of an era. There remains a serious risk depending on where the market closes for year-end, but we are staring in the eyes of rising rates on the 10-year level across the board in European debt with the dramatic expansion of the ECB balance sheet. It is smelling like the end is near and we may see a complete reversal of the trend unfolding for the next three years.

The pundits from Wall Street rarely get this right. They also tend to project the market from a fundamental perspective. If anything, 2020 is a major game-changer regardless of who wins the elections. This is not going back to the pre-COIVID normal. It will also not be what the majority think.Categories:Interest RatesPolitics

Inflection Point – President Trump: “I’ll only say this once”…


Posted originally on The Conservative Tree House on October 19, 2020 by sundance

Today in Prescott, Arizona, President Trump hit his victory stride for the home-stretch.  Go back and watch the entire rally if needed and you’ll see.

There are moments, inflection points per se’, that are not unique to President Trump but are uniquely President Trump.  We have now entered a very specific phase of the 2020 campaign with a confident, purposeful and focused candidate.  First, watch this:

What President Trump expressed in that moment is very typically Trump.

Accepting that AG Bill Barr is likely to do nothing, he moves quickly through the disappointment phase, finds no value in dwelling there, and shifts into optimal solutions mode. This is a character trait of Donald Trump that has made him successful through life.

Several years ago, WolfMoon accurately described this trait as “optimal solutions” Trump. Assess, evaluate, move strategically, stride confidently.  This shift is specifically pertinent at this moment because it comes as an outcome of a very positive momentum shift.

President Trump is confident.

As a general disposition Donald Trump is an optimistic person; and he has trained himself through life to move quickly past any negatives and disappointments.

Donald John Trump remembers, but he does not dwell; and does not let dark clouds, or dark imaginings impede his path to success.  President Trump senses, keenly and intuitively, the massive surge of positive momentum being built around his reelection.

Trump can see the enthusiasm and optimism; however, perhaps more importantly, he can feel it. That empowering sense provides him strength to move through disappointment by accepting AG Bill Barr is likely to do nothing about the elements of government who have attempted to stop his administration objectives.

In real time, for those who have watched the past 16 hours, President Trump has embraced the overwhelming energy of optimism and is now moving into an intense period of joyful campaigning.

Oh, to be sure he will beat the shit out of Joe Biden and the corrupt elements of the deep state; he will not stop talking about it – but he now moves into a mode where he leverages the truth of what took place as an element of his outsider campaign effort.  Truth becomes his weapon.

This is Donald Trump owning the downside and moving into position to win the 2020 election with a spirit of optimism, and YOU have played, and continue to play, a key role in this.

MAGA supporters have rallied through the garbage and insults and remained positive. You are now fuel for this phase of the Trump 2020 campaign. If AG Barr moves to deliver accountability, great; however, if he doesn’t – so what… We will not allow victory to be diminished by the ideology of an entrenched and vile DC establishment. Our victory will be won with joy and optimism for the great American country we know and love.

This is the approach toward dealing with politics, and still living your best life.

This approach is rallying to the standard that sets the American people apart from the rest of the world. This is the independent choice to live in fellowship; accept the abundance that surrounds us with thankfulness; and engage our optimistic spirit to get-r-done. This is the heart of American pride.  Act or be acted upon.

We are an optimistic nation. President Trump knows at a DNA level how important the spirit of joy and accomplishment is to our nation. He is right now more confident in “US” than he has ever been and he is giving us the opportunity to determine our own destiny.

Optimal Solutions Trump is not blind to the challenge… and not naive to the opposition… but he will not let the resistance define the effort or the strategy; and by expressing the very best optimistic outlook he will leave nothing on the field.

This is our candidate; this is our President.

This is the moment when we can decide if we are the people we have been waiting for.

Donald Trump is a successful person in life and in business because he gives everyone around him the opportunity to be their best-self and achieve their highest aspirations. Disappointment is left in the rear-view mirror and achieving optimal solutions becomes the path forward.

Get ready folks, this is Trump unleashed.

Giddy up ‘folks, this is fun Trump.

Put out the signs; wear the gear; engage with everyone; be openly optimistic and rally to the standard. We have so got this if we want it…

Deserve MAGA victory !!

[2017] “Well, I don’t really have to do any holding together, now that I figured out what Trump is up to. He is shaking things out, but counting on Trump gravity to pull things back together as he moves along.

He is moving “forward” at speeds Obama could not even dream of.

You and I will be anti-Trump trolls one day and MAGA heroes the next. Get used to it. Trump speed is the new normal. Some will call it flip-flopping, but that’s not what it is. Trump is dodging and weaving through reality faster than the reality can react to disrupt his plans.

I was explaining this to my wife. This is a roller-coaster now. Trump is no longer waiting for people to keep up. He is taking his bewildering art-of-the-deal campaign schtick into geopolitics, and for a lot of people who can’t keep up or hold on, it will be a rough ride.

Trump is no longer playing only with evil and cunning players who are still predictable, easily beatable dopes, like Hillary. He is playing against killers, with his own team of killers, and all the while he has scheming creeps like Hillary, BGI, SPLC, and the neocons gunning for him. Snake Ryan ready to bite when nobody is looking. “Warhead” McCain screaming for Russian blood. Psycho Kim and Samoa Obama plotting some kind of intrigue to take him down. And THOSE are the lightweights.

This is the majors now. Trump has to outwit world-class adversaries and “frenemies” by defining the deals that they will agree to. One minute they will think Trump is their friend – the next minute, a cunning, bitter foe.

And he has to do this with evil cheerleaders like Warhead, Linderace, Dipsy Dowd, Maggie Haterman, and Fake Yapper trashing him or praising him alternately, no matter which way he goes. They can’t keep up, either.

Neither can many around him. I think that half of the problem with advisers crashing into each other is they don’t realize what Trump is doing.

And people will trash you, and they will trash me. Get used to it. I’ve already caught plenty of people mocking me. Well, just wait a week in Trump time. Look stupid and conned by Trump one minute, and you look like a sage three days later.

Trump will not find perfect solutions. He will find OPTIMAL solutions. We cannot ask for more. Trump has stood by and watched Perfect murder Good for 8 years – maybe longer. He’s not gonna do it. He’s going to deliver the best outcome possible, and he’s not waiting for us to feel relaxed about it.

Best presidency ever! Just hang on. More winning is coming, but a lot of people are going to scream that it’s all over at EVERY turn.

The best way through this is to define viewpoints, not people, because people will shift as they change position and velocity in Trump gravity. Bash the neocon, warmonger, and dopey globalist positions – not the people who are going to hold them one moment and come loose from them later.

Trump is Jupiter moving through the asteroid belt. He is going to pull people into his orbit. A few will get slung off into space, but most will come along for the ride of their lives.

I am ON the Trump Train for good, even if I scream that I want off and can’t take it.

In the end, I only want to scream “TOO MUCH WINNING!!!” (link)

I told you in 2015 and 2016 that MAGA would win.  We did.

I told you in 2018 that MAGA was likely to lose the House.  We did.

I’m telling you right now in 2020 we are likely to win and we can crush the opposition; removing Nancy Pelosi from office.  The decision is ours.

You want accountability?  You want justice?  You want to retain the Republic that you know and love… Well, get your ass in the game, get serious, get everyone involved and register those who never voted before; remind everyone, and drive the MONSTER VOTE !!
