Voter Turnout May Reach 61%


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

As of the weekend, more than 26 million people have voted, according to the U.S. Elections Project, a turnout-tracking database run by the University of Florida political scientist Michael McDonald. That’s more than six times the number of votes cast by the same point in 2016. Of course, the 2016 election produced almost 129 million votes. That means about 20% of the people have voted. Although the emphasis of this being 6 times the previous vote, this is not necessarily indicative of a major increase. We also have this created pandemic which has been created to terrorize the population.

The total number of people registered to vote is 239,247,182 or those eligible being 257,605,088. We should see a tsunami in voting this year. We see a minimum, of 55% turnout with an ideal projection of about 61%. The 2016 turnout was 55.5% compared to the previous election of 54.9%. The low was the 1996 election at 49% when Bill Clinton won.

Coming Famine?


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

QUESTION: I just want to be prepared. How long is the famine supposed to happen? 1-2 years? More?

SD

ANSWER: These lockdowns have already set in motion a reduction in the food supply. In the United States, there were temporary shortages of certain foods. You can see plenty of videos where farms lost 100% of their crops because they could not get the food into the supply chain. The greatest problem we have is that many farmers were hurt by the COVID-19 restrictions. The same was taking place in Australia. Then there have been climate issues with great floods in China.

We see that food prices should rise between 2022 into 2024 more aggressively but this should be from shortages. There is a 17.2-year cycle in famine. This is what has emerged from our database which extends back to 2200BC. There are times when famine results in war. The last major famine, for example, in North Korea (1994-1998) killing at least 600,000 from starvation. This next famine will begin in 2022 and will extend into 2028/2029 in varying parts of the world. Therefore, it is not consistent with one particular area. However, this attempt for the Great Reset is also pushing the crisis in reducing the food supply at a time when we should be stockpiling it.

Klaus Schwab – The New Karl Marx Destined to Kill Hundreds of Millions

The New York Times cheered Stalin and constantly reported that this was the way to the future. They are supporting once again this move to a Marxist Utopia. The New York Times hid the truth about Stalin. His great economic miracle was achieved by taking all the food from Ukraine to pretend Communism was working in Russia causing over 7 million to starve to death.

So many people are really just ignorant. They think this election is about picking Trump v Biden. They are clueless because mainstream media is once again supporting this agenda of the Great Reset. Listen carefully to Schwab’s words. He expressly states “equality” which is the dream which began with Karl Marx.

The New York Times cheered Stalin and constantly reported that this was the way to the future. They are supporting once again this move to a Marxist Utopia. The New York Times hid the truth about Stalin. His great economic miracle was achieved by taking all the food from Ukraine to pretend Communism was working in Russia causing over 7 million to starve to death.

I strongly recommend you watch the movie Mr. Jones. This exposes the TRUE STORY of how the New York Times tried to support Communism in the United States back then, with their top journalist, Walter Duranty (1884-1957), who was their main man in Moscow. The New York Times promoted him to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for that reporting on how Communism was Utopia and our future. When Gareth Jones (1905-1935) in March 1933 reported this was all a lie, the truth finally began to appear.

It took the New York Times until 1990 to admit to that their reporting which covered up the truth about Stalin and the massive starvation in an effort, like Schwab, once again selling “equality” as our salvation. The New York Times covered up the more than 7 million people who died of starvation in the Ukraine famine. The New York Times wrote that their reporting on the Russian Revolution constituted “some of the worst reporting to appear in this newspaper.” They never revoked his Pultizer Prize for writing fake news about Stalin.

It was the New York Times’ Walter Duranty who also met with Franklin Roosevelt and supported the move toward Marxism in the United States as the “New Deal”. It was the New York Times’ Duranty that helped install drastic progressiveness in taxation in the United States following Marx, Lenin, and Stalin. This is precisely what Schwab is proposing with “equality” in league with his buddy, Thomas Piketty.

Anyone who thinks this is an election of just Democrat v Republican is a fool. There is a serious agenda behind these lockdowns and they have been intended to prevent commuters and to crush the world economy. Even Australia rules out international travel at least until the end of 2021. All of this is to reduce air travel to reduce CO2. This is the real agenda that Schwab has been selling behind the curtain. He will probably go down in history surpassing the death toll of Karl Marx. His lockdowns have already reduced the food supply and this raises the prospect of famine coming into play by 2022.

By Pillorying Trump, Democrats Ended Up Creating The Ultimate Underdog


The Hollywood, Democrat-media gang-up may remain impervious to their own self-destruction, but the watching world is not

Re-Posted from the Canada Free Press By Judi McLeod —— Bio and ArchivesOctober 14, 2020

Even in the midst of Government Mandatory Lock Down, with some people fearful they will contract Covid-19 from their own relatives, others are beginning to hear the still haunting strains of Bill Conti’s masterful ‘’Gonna’ Fly Now’ ‘Rocky’ theme.

Lost on self-centred arrogant Democrats: Just about everyone loves an Underdog—particularly Underdogs repeatedly targeted by a Democrat-media gang-up.

Deranged Democrats with the help of Hollywood and their running dog media have thrown everything except the proverbial kitchen sink at President Donald John Trump over the past four years.

Every vile smear has ricocheted back to home base, home base being the DEMOCRAT PARTY

Every vile smear from the early-day Stormy Daniels one,  through RussiaGate and Impeachment, all the way to the most recent attempt to frame the President of the United States as the world’s top Covid-19 infector has ricocheted back to home base, home base being the DEMOCRAT PARTY.

Giddy with the prospect of getting back into power, confident that Michelle Obama’s Mail-in Vote will give them enough votes for a Biden-Harris win; self-assured that now they got away with it once, they can lock down the whole country anytime they want, Democrats of our day have convinced themselves that NO ONE can stop them.

With no social distancing restrictions that apply to them, they’re already planning Election Night Whoopee! Parties and fireworks.  It’s only a matter of time they think before they can lay a laurel wreath on the befuddled head of Joe Biden, knowing it wont’t be long before they can knock it off and crown Sen. Kamala Harris as their long-awaited First woman U.S. president.

To the victor go the spoils, in this case, soils.  Democrats don’t have to worry about patriot insurrection, their BLM/Anita street mobs will take care of that.https://www.youtube.com/embed/KPhqU–Mq1A

But it I will take more than a Socialist Village to bury the landslide vote for President Trump

The yahooing and partying will continue as long as it takes to count the vote.

On Election Night, the media—including Fox News ,home of Chris Wallace—will spread the Fake News that Donald Trump is a goner.

Squeals of joy will erupt over the fruited plains on Election Night., from which Hillary Clinton can be heard barking like a dog.

But it I will take more than a Socialist Village to bury the landslide vote for President Trump.

The Democrat-media gang-up are truthfully and tragically unaware that their entire 2020 election strategy has already started to backfire on them: their hate spewing, name calling and attempted character-assassination of a duly elected President has, in the end,  made him The Underdog.

It’s part of human nature that the masses love underdogs.

Not only are the hundreds of thousands who line up to see their president, hundreds of boat and car parades a testament to that, but now Hillary’s “deplorables” are spontaneously chanting to Trump, “We love you!”

President Donald Trump could be the most beloved underdog in all history

President Donald Trump could be the most beloved underdog in all history.

And the epic story doesn’t end there:

What will the seriously disgruntled do when realization hits home that Barack, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Company were on a track whose strategies proved useless; that it was mostly just the Democrats, Hollywood and media who hated Trump while We the People went on loving him?

Just for starters:

Welcome to a new 2020 Hollywood,  where not just Covid-19 keeps fans in darkened theatres from watching Hollywood heroes and heart throbs in mostly empty rows of seats.

Hollywood’s going bankrupt and is selling out to Communist China.

People are not willing to pay for Politics masquerading as Sports anymore as in football, basketball and baseball.

The whole world’s going bankrupt and will continue to do so as long as Lock Downs keep people from getting back to family-supporting jobs.

The Hollywood, Democrat-media gang-up may remain impervious to their own self-destruction, but the watching world is not.

Even though the masses may have to wait days, weeks or even months for news that Donald Trump won on Election Night, millions will get to say, ‘Welcome back to the Oval Office, PRESIDENT Donald Trump and call 2020 as ‘The Year of the Underdog’.

This is the Real News we’ll all be waiting for— no matter how long it takes because at the end of the day we know that “Patience gains all things!”

Election 2020: Benign Popular Uprising Success?


Re-Posted from the Canada Free Press By Bob Hoye —— Bio and ArchivesOctober 14, 2020

Politically, there have been essentially two kinds of uprisings. Each prompted by widespread dissatisfaction and hardship. One restores freedom and economic success. The opposite has been malignant revolutions; exampled by brutal dictatorships in France in the late 1700s and in Russia beginning in the early 1900s. In these, neurotic intellectuals turned existing dissatisfaction unto bloody horror shows and bureaucratic tyrannies.

Extraordinary attempt by control freaks to destroy a constitutional republic in order to impose authoritarian government

Taking advantage of crisis is not new, and there is more to the pattern.

In Europe, on every authoritarian experiment, the governing classes granted themselves the privilege of state murder.

Since 2016, America’s Left has been using every arrow in its quiver to bring down an elected president. In startling contrast, it now has the audacity to accuse Trump of possibly blocking the next transfer of power.

The most recent successful benign uprising occurred in 1989 when ordinary folk who were unarmed took on an armed and murderous police state. The symbol was bringing down the Berlin Wall, when controlling swamp critters suddenly lost the will to impose authority.

Suggesting hope for the current struggle for freedom.

Another example was England’s “Glorious Revolution” of 1688, which took down the last absolutist king. He had threatened to use French troops (globalism) in England. Seeing the political tide turning against him, King James reluctantly sought authoritarian solace in France.

Regrettably, the past few decades have recorded an extraordinary attempt by control freaks to destroy a constitutional republic in order to impose authoritarian government. This has now become so intense as to inspire another benign popular uprising. Which shocked the establishment in 2016.

More recently, Venezuela has been controlled to destitution

Will reform again be successful in November?

In order to remove any ambiguity of political banners such as Democrat or Republican, Bernieism or Bidenism, physics provides a practical definition of a totalitarian system.

“That which is not compulsory is prohibited.”

Which elegantly covers every political ambition from Communism to schoolboards. And, sadly, such ambition is now using any excuse to overwhelm constitutional norms. Bad weather and another influenza are caused by too many politically incorrect people.

The economic shutdown is the most severe since the 1930s famines when Bolsheviks forced Lysenkoism upon Russia’s agriculture.

More recently, Venezuela has been controlled to destitution.

The point to be made that in full fury authoritarians don’t care how much hardship they create, just so long as they are in control. Personal ambition that thrives on disasters it causes. And the governing classes have become, well, ungovernable.  But living well.

China’s revolution in the 1960s was guided by Mao’s “Great Leap Forward”. In 2011, Obama boasted about his form of community organization whereby “activist government could also be smart government”. The wonders of activism have been evident in Portland and other Democrat cities.

Soviet troops, tanks and machine guns put each attempt at reform down. Murderously

“Smart” is waiting discovery.

Obviously, the Left’s blatant ambition is causing shocking unemployment. With enough dissatisfaction to prompt an exceptional exodus from city-cores being ruined by Democrat activists. That some are voting with their feet and if these political refugees don’t take their socialist votes with them, they could become part of the reform movement.  Without the dislocation of moving, an easier step is to break the spell and vote for reform.

Has the seemingly endless intrusion of in-your-face and in-your-wallet government become damaging enough to inspire another success by the benign popular uprising?

As reviewed above, these have included breathtaking reforms in 1989 and in 1688. Tragically, some benign uprisings were brutally quelled. Examples include East Germany in 1953, Hungary in 1956 and the one with the most hope was the “Prague Spring” of 1968.

Soviet troops, tanks and machine guns put each attempt at reform down. Murderously.

This was one of the points in American Spring published by this writer on July 2, 2016. The rhetorical question about an “American Spring” being quelled brutally as in Prague was rejected. But the attempt to overwhelm America’s constitutional regard for freedom and limited government has been staggering. Even becoming fanatical in using any ploy to depose an elected president.

Quite likely the equivalent has been unseen in some 200 years of parliamentary history in America, Canada or England.

Left, in all its apparitions, has gone berserk

Another question in the 2016 article asked about the likelihood of Trump winning and the answer was in “Flyover” vernacular – “You bet!”.

And the Left, in all its apparitions, has gone berserk. Hitherto, intruding authoritarians suffered little popular opposition. But since being hit by a widespread “No!” the Left has been thrashing around in a tantrum usually limited to four-year-old-children.

Moreover, the intrusion using weather and influenza fears has been the most radical in the senior economy since the last great experiment in authoritarian government in the 1500s. However, by the early 1600s in England statist intrusion became altogether too much with popular opinion eventually accomplishing a great reformation. 

Lately, the Left’s ambition seems similar to the early stages of the French or Russian Revolutions. Which is dangerous. Perhaps this is again becoming “too much”, inspiring another successful phase of the benign popular uprising. Will it be strong and soon enough to win the presidency?

In January this seemed probable, but the use of the Wuhan Flu in imposing authority has been remarkable. Dems are also using the contrived crisis to corrupt voting.

Left’s urgent mission prohibits criticism and debate, while obedience to dogma is compulsory

So, it comes down to having enough ordinary folk seeing through the gaming of fear and the rigging of the electoral system to prevail. Hitherto, elections in the two party system provided middle-of-the-road platforms. Issues were debated.

But now the Left’s urgent mission prohibits criticism and debate, while obedience to dogma is compulsory. With opposition being banned a Democratic win would end America as a constitutional republic—a political tragedy.

On the longer term, previous benign uprisings advanced when the experiment in unlimited government literally destroyed the economy. Which prompted a great reform of, as the Brits called it in the early 1600s, “Tyrannical Duncery”.

Too much of the latter is being imposed these days, but history suggests that another great reformation is underway.

Twitter & Facebook Censoring the Truth


Armstrong Economics Blog/Censorship Re-Posted Oct 15, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; You went from the most renowned economist in the world to a conspiracy theorist and now you are being regarded as the guy who really had the sources about the virus. Your sources about Russia and Ukraine turned out to be true. Your career is a cycle in itself. It has taught me that other sites like ___ ___who used to quote you and stopped are not worth my trust anymore. They seem to have an agenda. What’s next? You say these guys will not win. Do you have a timeframe?

Thank you for being straight when others are not

BK

ANSWER: It has been a campaign against anyone who questioned the virus narrative. I am not sure this particular site you mentioned specifically stopped quoting me because of COVID. It was probably because they are married to gold and inflation and, like YouTube, they do not want to quote people they disagree with. That is dangerous because they then become no different than what we see with COVID censorship. So, I don’t think they are conspiring because of COVID. They just sell the gold agenda and refuse to look at the possibility of what they have been saying has been the standard sales pitch since 1971. There are some sites pretending to be analysts but are being paid to take a particular view covertly. I do not believe they are one of those. Just a difference of opinion and philosophy.

Now that aside, we began picking up the unusual activity in capital flows in August 2019. By December our sources were talking about a virus and there was selling from key players that was very unusual. By January our sources were saying they were using our model to time the sale – January 18, 2020. By February, they were bragging about selling the high but saying at first they did not want to be greedy so that is why they sold. But they sold bonds as well so that was showing there was a deep concern that government debt would get in trouble – not the standard flight to quality. This time it was just to cash.

The economic damage is far greater than anyone expected. The powers in central banks are now scared to death about what happens when restrictions are lifted. So many lower-income people have lost their jobs. They have been forced into even greater poverty. We do not see the labor market coming back until the next turn in 2022. There will be food shortages that expand and we will see prices rise because of SHORTAGES rather than a booming demand from a robust economy.

Trump will probably win the in-person vote, so behind the curtain, they are focusing on trying to win the Senate. They need that to try to curb the investigation into the massive level of corruption.

Still, that said, some states like New Jersey are so corrupt they will NOT allow in-person voting. Everyone has to do the mail-in ballots. There will be no booth voting so there is no way they will have a count by November 3rd. This is part of the plan to be in a position to challenge the election to prevent a Trump victory at all costs. Between November into January, this will get nuts.

These real conspirators pulling the strings behind the curtain need Biden to win. This is about the Great Reset. I know what I am talking about. This is really an all-out war for the future. It’s not that Trump is a fantastic person. This is about he is simply standing in the way against these people who are out to steal our future. Anyone who votes for Biden blindly will be no different than the Russian who thought communism would bring Utopia. They suddenly discovered the only way to oppress the rich was that they too had to be oppressed and surrender all their rights.

The high tech companies are all in with Biden. Both Facebook and Twitter removed the New Your Post because it was against Biden. I personally have had enough of these companies. They have no right to censor the news. They are trying to turn the country into Communist Russia. Free Speech means I may not agree with the left, but they have an ABSOLUTE right to freely speak their position. They are lucky I am not President. I would revoke their licenses and investigate if they have been acting covertly with political entities to reshape the news. That to me is treason against everything the people are entitled to.  I do not agree with Hillary, but she has a right to speak. That is what freedom is all about.

Here we have yet another person pushing the climate change agenda who also has no scientific background to question the very words he is speaking. This is not a movie script to read. He too is trying to use his star-status to force people to lose their jobs and has been also a speaker at Schwab’s World Economic Forum in Davos.

Only Australia’s Sky News is Defending the People Against Schwab


Armstrong Economics Blog/Conspiracy Re-Posted Oct 14, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

Mainstream media is still desperately acting like the Nazis at Nuremberg — I was just following orders. ONLY Sky News in Australia has the guts to call out these people for what they are. Klaus Schwab and his academic dreams of reordering the world have to be exposed. A CLASS ACTION lawsuit should be filed against Schwab and his World Economic Forum; subpoena all the financial records and internal notes, and DO IT QUICKLY before he and others destroy them. Schwab’s arrogance has created over 300 million unemployed and he has been instrumental in advising world leaders to destroy their economies.

The World Economic Forum is a leftist organization and they are using their influence. They knew this virus was coming. Within weeks, he was standing by with his Great Reset. That lawsuit needs to be filed in the USA and it MUST NOT be in the Southern District of New York. That is the most corrupt court in the country and they will protect Schwab along with all the bankers that they are notorious for protecting.

The mainstream press really should be sued and put out of business for deliberately engaging in propaganda against both the people and furthering Soros’s One World Government. ABC, CDS, NBC, and CNN, along with the Washington Post, and the New York Times have deliberately pushed this virus into scare tactics to further Schwab’s Great Reset. We seriously need the Fairness Doctrine restored whereby ALL media must present both sides. They are a disgrace to the very spirit of free speech. So many people lost everything because of these people.

I find it very interesting how these billionaires seem to want to prevent anyone else from making a lot of money, for perhaps they would do as they are doing and fund the opposition. It is just amazing how divided the world is becoming and that is the element needed for revolutions.

The film the Forum made its debut in New York City. I was invited there. My criticism back in 2019 was that I thought the film was supposed to be about Schwab’s accomplishment in creating the World Economic Forum when I found it was focused on climate change and Greta.
