May 8th – the Turning Point & the Crack in Confidence

Armstrong Economics Blog/ECM Re-Posted Jun 11, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

I have been warning that since 1999, there has been a shift in government where the UNELECTED bureaucrats seek to take over the country. I have warned that in my opinion, Trump was naive thinking that being president meant you really were in charge. For all of those who voted for Biden who did so because they HATED Trump, I am sorry to inform you but you were strategically and cleverly manipulated. Not that Trump was this great person. Many people did not like that he often came off as arrogant. They used that to get people to hate him personally and ignore the issues that were hidden behind the curtain.

When Sen. Ron Wyden asked James Clapper, director of U.S. national intelligence, one of the highest-ranking intelligence officials in the country, if the government was collecting data on Americans as Snowden warned, he outright lied to the people of this country and to Congress. Clapper answered the question at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing and said, “no,” or at least “not wittingly.”

Perhaps you will recall that the IRS was illegally targeting conservatives for political reasons. When their emails were sought, they simply pulled a Hillary – of sorry there were lost. Then perhaps you will recall that Republican John McCain also used the IRS to target people. This was not restricted to Democrats.

I can go on and on. I have told the story of how I would meet people who wanted to run for president for the Republicans and it was a vetting process. I was always asked my assessment of their ability to understand the global economy. Then I was asked to fly to meet with Bush Jr. in 1999 but was told this time it was different – “he is really stupid.” I was shocked, but I then saw how everyone in the Bush Administration was being picked from behind the curtain. That is when they asked me if I would take the position of Chief Economic Adviser and I declined. I wrote about it when the movie VICE came out and they pretended that Bush asked Cheney to be his Vice President when that the selection was made behind the curtain.

My point is simple. What we are witnessing with Fauci where 54% of Americans now believe COVID came from a lab and only 17% believe Fauci is the collapse in government thanks to the Deep State. They have been lying to people about getting the vaccine even after they had COVID and are immune as with every other virus after you get it like the Flu. This is how bureaucrats really are in the flesh – they will say anything to manipulate the people. They are indignant, feel they are in the driver’s seat, and are above the law because they do not prosecute themselves. They never have to answer to the people for they never have to run for election.

I am NOT being partisan here! I have said the bureaucrats have won, this time they have an incompetent president and vice president. In this video we can see how Harris in Guatemala tells the people do not come to the United States they will be turned back. But during the election, she said we should give these people “hope” which was exactly the opposite as they painted Trump a heartless and evil. In this video, Trump is talking about illegal aliens and this speech is the one where no Democrat stood and Pelosi tore up his speech. See how politics is just evil. Perhaps one day the majority will cross over to the world of independence and demand then end of career politicians and install an independent office to prosecute bureaucrats that violate the law.

Then there is the Kennedy assassination that the government refuses to release all the documents claiming National Security, which can only mean that the CIA was the source of the assassination and Lee Harvey Oswald was probably a patsy who was killed to prevent any trial like Epstein or their attempt on my life. This is just standard operating procedure when a trial would expose their corruption.  If it had been Russians who killed Kennedy, they would certainly have released it now given all the allegations that the Russians rigged the 2016 election which Mueller concluded was false. The CIA delayed any release until April 2021 knowing the at Trump would be out of office. I do not believe Biden has released the documents that were held back. Why? It just smells like an inside job.

People are starting to see behind the curtain what I have seen first hand in Washington and other governments. The bureaucrats are NOT public servants. They seek to control and manipulate the public. Fauci has been exposed and already since the turning point of May 8th, 2021, that was the final peak in government confidence. That week also marked Bill Gates’ divorce. That was a critical turning point and I have warned that this Great Reset cabal will fail. In the first month, we have seen the crack in the image and it is just beginning.

Arizona Update From Kelli Ward, Paper Ballot Counting Nearly Finished, Several States Reviewing Process, Thousands of Volunteers

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on June 11, 2021 | Sundance | 66 Comments

Arizona GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward provides an update Thursday night on the status of the Maricopa County ballot audit.  Physical ballot counting is almost complete and delegations from Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Alaska, Colorado, Utah, Oklahoma, Washington State and Michigan have all attended and reviewed the operation.

The widespread national interest is likely what has triggered the DOJ.  Additionally, there are early reports that ballots are missing and the final tally will not match the reported number of ballots counted.  Interesting possibilities.

Michigan Plaintiff William Bailey Files a Motion For Reconsideration Following New Evidence of Antrim County Ballot Fraud

Posted originally in the conservative tree house on June 11, 2021 | Sundance | 72 Comments

Michigan attorney Matthew DePerno, on behalf of plaintiff William Bailey, files a motion [pdf available here] with Judge Kevin Eslenheimer for reconsideration of prior rulings given the nature of new evidence discovered by the legal team in Antrim County.

The 42-page brief contains new findings within the data forensics of the county.  Two larger items include the remote log-on of the system by someone anonymous who was not at the election office.  The implication is that the system was connected to the internet; and the user did not have to enter identifying credentials for their entries.

The second larger item is the identification of modifications, specific irregularities, of the ballots outer markings that led to a rejection of the ballots and the need for adjudication.  [Full pdf is here]

AG Merrick Garland Announces The DOJ Will Scrutinize any Post-Election Audits for Evidence of Voting Law Violations

Posted originally on the conservative house on June 11, 2021 | Sundance | 489 Comments

Apparently the DOJ is very worried about the ongoing movements to audit U.S. election systems and identify voter fraud issues.  Attorney General Merrick Garland announces today that the Justice Department will double the number of federal employees inside the DOJ civil rights division and scrutinize any post-election audits for evidence of voting law violations.

Obviously the first set of inquiries into U.S. election systems is discovering multiple flaws and ways that vote outcomes can be manipulated.  More states are taking note of the myriad of election integrity issues as an outcome of the 2020 election which was transparently flawed.  The groundswell is picking up and several states are reviewing the audit procedures currently underway in Arizona.

Not surprisingly, today the DOJ Attorney General announces the federal government is prepared to intervene in order to retain the status quo.  WATCH:

Flooding the Zone, Another Report of Hackers Stealing Personal Data of 26 Million Big Tech Platform Users

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on June 11, 2021 | Sundance | 139 Comments

Color me increasingly suspicious of the sudden ‘uptick’ in cyber hacking reports. The timeline tells a bigger story and my hunch is this is the creation of cover for a future U.S. government position that audit outcomes should be ignored because cyber security breaches are common.

In March of this year the media reported about the U.S. Department of Homeland Security getting ready to hire public companies, individual contractors outside government, to scour public data and social media in order to provide information for the new “domestic terror watch lists.” From the description it appeared DHS was going to pay “big tech” (Google, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, SnapChat, Twitter, etc.), via contracts, to hire and organize internal monitoring teams to assist the government by sending information on citizens they deem “dangerous”, ie “domestic extremists” {LINK}.

To facilitate that national security objective the Feds were going to need to work with outside government entities, FBI contractors, to permit access to monitoring systems. However, additionally interesting…. immediately after that DHS announcement suddenly there’s an uptick in cyber intrusions, pipelines hacked etc. Then the FBI says they recovered the ransom payment by knowing the private credentials to the hackers. That’s very fishy.

Now today:

(Daily Mail) Hackers have stolen 26 million user logins for tech giants including Amazon, Apple, Facebook as well as vital payment information in the latest online security breach.

The malware hack, exposed by cybersecurity provider NordLocker, also saw payment details nabbed from 3.25 million computers that run Windows software. It was uncovered after researchers discovered a 1.2 terabyte database filled with stolen personal information.

The other firms whose accounts were targeted include eBay, Instagram, Netflix, Paypal, Roblox, Steam, Twitch and Twitter. It saw victims computers’ infected by opening emails, or downloading bootleg software, and enabled the malware to take screenshots of their browsing activity – including private login details. (read more)

In the background of these data breaches CTH is noting that U.S. officials are now admitting U.S. election systems are connected to the internet: “according to a team of 10 independent cybersecurity experts who specialize in voting systems and elections. While the voting machines themselves are not designed to be online, the larger voting systems in many states end up there, putting the voting process at risk.  That team of election security experts say that last summer, they discovered some systems are, in fact, online.” [link]

Obviously I’m professionally cynical of all DC interests and motives; nothing they do is altruistic and everything is based on their model of self-preservation of power.  As a consequence I cannot help but think this sudden uptick in hacking and data-network breaches; that just happens to begin right after DHS announces their partnership with outside agencies for on-line monitoring; may be connected to a larger objective around the election audits.

If the outcome of any election audit can be dismissed because the background noise is deafening with the sound of the hacking and cyber-intrusion narrative; and if any audit outcome can be marginalized or ridiculed because of the potential for data manipulation; then we are essentially seeing a re-run of the “bathtub principle”.

Bathtub Principle = you don’t want to get in trouble with your landlord for the broken fishtank ruining the carpet, so you let the bathtub overflow creating a bigger mess to cover for the problem.

If the deep state wants to cover for 2020 election fraud perhaps they would flood the zone with cyber-intrusions to undermine any electronic evidence?  It would not be the first time we have seen this type of cover operation.

Suspicious cat remains, well, suspicious…

John Spiropoulos Reports on “The Poison in Our Schools”

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on June 11, 2021 | Sundance | 70 Comments

Friend of the Treehouse, John Spiropoulos, is focusing additional effort on providing video resources for parents that are engaging in the fight against the indoctrination within our public school systems.   As John shares: “My objective is not to just raise awareness through typical Internet channels but to distribute all the materials free of charge to parent groups who want to use it to recruit and educate parents in their communities and to lobby school boards.”

As Mr. Spiropoulos attempts to help parents and concerned citizens with information about the current education dangers he explained, “while much of the discussion of Critical Race Theory is at the 30,000 foot level, my goal is to bring it down to the classroom level. CRT-influenced curriculum is in the face of students in any number of
classes and in numerous ways. Many a parent I’ve talked to seem to think it as an abstract concept. It’s not. It’s divisive and toxic.”

“At Tuesday’s hearing in Loudon County [Virginia] a former teacher described CRT as “nothing short of child abuse.””

Parents across the country are opposing the use of use of Critical Race Theory to design the curriculum for students in elementary and high school. This series of reports (24 are planned) which needs your financial support, will show parents how CRT influences what their children are taught.” ~ John SpiropoulosSupport for John:GoFundMe Link: Link:

Chairwoman Kelli Ward Provides Update on Arizona Ballot Audit, and NINE States are Traveling to Arizona to Learn About Forensic Audit Process

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on June 11, 2021 | sundance | 16 Comments

In this update Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward gives shares the background information on exactly what the audit involves after her own tour of the Maricopa County ballot audit facility. Mrs. Ward notes there are only three pallets of ballots left to be reviewed by hand before a high resolution digital image process begins on each and every ballot (Ward gives details).

Additionally, the Arizona audit team are reporting that “9 state delegations touring the audit tomorrow“, Friday June 11th. Previously, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Wisconsin, Virginia and Alaska were reported to have sent legislative members to the audit facility to review the process.

This is an interesting ‘behind the scene’ update for those who are following the process.


Keep the pressure on.  Election integrity is the #1 priority for our nation. We need every state legislature to hear from citizens and start to use their power to do audits of their own election procedures.  Every state should be sending a delegation to Arizona to see the process of a full forensic audit AND canvass.

Interesting Exchange Between Congressman Matt Gaetz and FBI Director Christopher Wray

Posted originally on the Conservative Tree house on June 10, 2021 | sundance | 129 Comments

It would appear that Representative Matt Gaetz was using the opportunity provided in a public hearing with FBI Director Chris Wray to push information into the public.

This is a very interesting exchange where Rep Gaetz outlines a timeline of engagement between a Chinese “whistle-blower” and the FBI in the spring and summer of 2020 pointing directly to the Wuhan Biolab as the originator of the virus.  WATCH: “Congressman Matt Gaetz questions FBI Director Christopher Wray on the FBI’s knowledge of the COVID-19 origins after agents followed and questioned Wuhan lab whistle-blower Dr. Li Meng-Yan.”



P.S. Unrelated to absolutely everything, Gaetz is starting to look like Jack Nicholson.

Matt DePerno Outlines New Evidence of Election Manipulation Surfacing in Antrim County Michigan

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on June 10, 2021 | sundance | 196 Comments

Matthew DePerno has been attempting to navigate lawsuits through the unfriendly court system in Michigan in an effort to expose electronic manipulation of the 2020 election that took place.  The Michigan legislature do not want to assist any investigative audit or forensic audit of Michigan voting systems.  Despite the intransigence of the political system and judicial system DePerno is persisting.  [WEBSITE HERE]

Yesterday Mr. DePerno sent out a series of tweets drawing attention to the latest developments.  Earlier today DePerno appeared with Steve Bannon to discuss his findings.
