Cultural Differences in the United States


QUESTION: Hi Martin,
I have been reading your blog for about 5yrs now.
Do you think that the Alabama “anti-abortion” bill could be one of the fundamentals hurling the USA towards the massive civil unrest that is Socrates model is predicting? The Alabama bill passing seems similar to events leading up to the US Civil war in the timeframe of 1830-1861 in which states were passing laws/court rulings that forced the Supreme Court to make decisions (i.e. Dredd Scott and others) that ultimately lead to secession and war.
thanks!

ANSWER: Not this one issue. It is accumulative and illustrates the differences culturally within the United States on a regional basis. Clearly, what the culture is in California has a polar opposite view in Alabama.

Published on Jun 24, 2019

Democrat Candidate Buttigieg Tells Black Lives Matter Supporters: “I’m not asking for your vote”…


Former vice-president Joe Biden and former Major Pete Buttigieg are both running into campaign problems with African American minority voters.

In the latest incident Buttigieg is being protested by Black Lives Matter advocates, and his response is to read from a prepared script, while telling BLM activists he’s not asking for their vote. Not a good look.

Published on Jun 21, 2019

As pandering Democrats push reparations for slavery, what’s the Republican answer to address issues like institutional racism, poverty, unequal justice, failing schools, and other problems and grievances? Is it enough to just say ‘No’ to reparations, or should the GOP have a positive, creative program to address problems, many of which are caused by government?

Facebook Sweatshop Scandal: Staff Suffers PTSD Screening Gruesome, Cruel Videos


Published on Jun 21, 2019

Facebook outsources screening of gruesome, cruel videos, to a sick sweatshop where workers suffer PTSD and other effects of horrifying work under terrible conditions. How does that square with the social media giant’s happy mission of uniting people around the world? And if violent videos of animal abuse pass the rigorous screening, why is it so hard for limited-government conservatives to get their message out.

Iran on Schedule for the War Cycle


COMMENT: Mr. Armstrong; I am a Muslim and I have just read you War Cycle report from 2015where you provide your forecast for this crisis we are cascading into. You historical analysis is fair and honest. Most people have no idea of the history of the region no less the divisions in Islam. Your forecast is coming into play. It looks like a countdown for the next year.

I wanted to take the time to express my respect for your world view and how you remain the voice of reason.

REPLY: I have been a student of history my whole life. But memorizing battles and dates and handing out titles like “The Great” (Magnus) for winning a war to me is the noise. The key to history is understand the patterns and once you see the patterns, it no longer justifies one position against another. I have come to understand Thrasymachus who observed that it did not matter what form of government we lived under, JUSTICE is always defined as the self-interest of government. Once I looked at his observation, it became crystal clear that it also did not apply to merely government, but all aspects of any group that seized power under a variety of labels including religion.

The English Civil War was also supposed to be about religion – Puritans v Catholics. Oliver Cromwell overthrew King Charles I and even beheaded him. He then issued coins calling himself the Lord Protector, but they carried his portrait with an olive wreath as if he too were then king. The Puritans outlawed all sports because that led to cursing, plays for they were lies, Christmas for you should be praying not celebrating, and it became a felony subject to death for kissing you wife in public. Indeed, Thrasymachus hit the nail on the head about 2,000 year before Cromwell – justice is simply the self-interest of those in power.

History repeats BECAUSE the patterns repeat and they are patterns of human reactions. I tried to do a good job in that report on the Middle East. The target date is rapidly approaching. Indeed, we have nearly a year to understand what is taking place.

Make no mistake about it. The majority of the youth in Iran do NOT support the current government in Iran. This also raises the stakes for the current religious regime in Ira will gradually lose power as attitudes change among the younger generations. To this inevitability, Iran becomes a greater risk for starting a war of they face the loss of power and a potential internal revolution. There was the 1979 revolution in Iran which put in place the religious government. The previous revolution took place between 1905 to 1911. It is unlikely that the religious government in Iran will be as strong after 2021 and the country is likely to end up with a completely non-religious government by 2051.

2016 Syrian Refugee Mustafa Mousab Alowemer, 21, Arrested During ISIS Inspired Plot To Bomb Christian Church in Pittsburgh…


In August 2016 a Syrian named Mustafa Mousab Alowemer, now 21, entered the U.S. under President Obama’s refugee program.  Today he was arrested in an ISIS plot to bomb a Christian church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

(Via DOJ) Mustafa Mousab Alowemer, 21, a resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was arrested today based on a federal complaint charging him with one count of attempting to provide material support and resources to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization, and two counts of distributing information relating to an explosive, destructive device, or weapon of mass destruction in relation to his plan to attack a church in Pittsburgh.

The announcement was made by Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, U.S. Attorney Scott W. Brady for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Assistant Director Michael McGarrity of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division and Special Agent in Charge Robert Jones of the FBI’s Pittsburgh Division.

“Targeting places of worship is beyond the pale, no matter what the motivation,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers. “The defendant is alleged to have plotted just such an attack of a church in Pittsburgh in the name of ISIS. The National Security Division and our partners will continue our efforts to identify and bring to justice individuals in our country who seek to commit violence on behalf of ISIS and other terrorist organizations. I want to thank the agents, analysts, and prosecutors who are responsible for this investigation.”

“Court documents show Mustafa Alowemer planned to attack a church in the name of ISIS, which could have killed or injured many people. Fortunately, his plans were foiled by the full force of the FBI Pittsburgh Joint Terrorism Task Force,” said Assistant Director McGarrity. “The FBI takes threats to churches and other religious institutions extremely seriously and will use all our resources to stop potential terrorist attacks against them.” (read more)

Creepy Sex Cult Leader Keith Raniere Found Guilty on All Charges…


This entire story is creepy, really creepy.  God bless those poor people on the jury who had to sit and hear all these skeezy details….

Following a six-week trial the Democrats favorite sex trafficker, Keith Raniere (58), was convicted on all charges including: sex trafficking, racketeering, wire fraud, forced labor and attempted sex trafficking; all conspiracy charges. He will be sentenced Sept. 25.

Here’s the statement by U.S. Attorney Richard P. Donoghue after the conviction of Keith Raniere outside the Brooklyn federal courthouse:

NEW YORK – NXIVM’s founder Keith Raniere was convicted on Wednesday on all seven counts against him, for creating what prosecutors described as a sex cult in which female members were branded with his initials and kept in line through blackmail.

Raniere, 58, was convicted after a six-week trial of charges including racketeering, racketeering conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy, forced labor conspiracy, sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and attempted sex trafficking. He will be sentenced Sept. 25.

Raniere, also known as “Vanguard” to members within NXIVM, and Allison Mack, who is best known for her role on the TV series “Smallville,” were both indicted by a grand jury in April 2018 on charges arising from Raniere and Mack’s alleged roles in a secret society within NXIVM.

Published on Jun 18, 2019

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams Amazon, suggesting billionaire CEO Jeff Bezos pays workers “starvation wages”, and should offer more benefits and pay more taxes. Surprisingly, the major Democrat donor’s company punches back, educating AOC on Amazon’s actual pay and benefits package, as well as its massive corporate tax bill. How long will big businesses like Amazon continue to kowtow to the Democrat party that hates everything they stand for, castigates corporate greed, and longs to scuttle their hopes and dreams?
