“Meddling” in the 2000 Russian Election


QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; I watched your movie the Forecaster with great interest. I then watched the Showtime interview of Putin by Oliver Stone. It suddenly struck me that he stated that U.S. intelligence agencies, interfered in the Russian 2000 election. That why they blocked your movie from appearing in the United States when it was on TV here in Canada and a friend of mine watched in on the airplane traveling here from Europe. That’s how Putin became president because of the attempt to blackmail Yeltsin. I had an OMG moment.

Are they still going forward with the Hollywood movie? Will this be the typical movie funding issues where people can invest in a film for a piece of the action?

Thanks. You really were the guy that knew too much.

ANSWER: I just got the script for the Movie. Handed it out to some friends and the comments are that they could not put it down. The comments from the professional Hollywood script reader’s review was:

“The Forecaster Of Princeton is a fast-paced financial
thriller in the vein of such classics as Wall Street and
The Wolf Of Wall Street. However, the script manages to set
itself apart from similar offerings by crafting a
protagonist that isn’t necessarily motivated by greed and
excess. Further, the script features a unique component,
which is the protagonist’s ability to predict foreign
events. Overall, the script is strong enough to warrant
consideration.“
Many have asked can they invest in the film production for a share. Yes. That is how it goes. I have no details on any of that. All I know is they are doing private funding. Most movies go to the banks for funding. For obvious reasons, that will not be the case here. My deal was I was only interested if it portrayed the truth about the issues of international intrigue. That has been met. It now goes to a director and then they select the case. None of that has been completed yet. I think the script was well written for the writer had legal background which helped a lot.

As for the other part of your question, the answer is also Yes. Just about everyone in that matter which surrounded my case was killed insofar as those involved with Russia. I helped Dominic Dunn break that story – Death in Monaco. Safra tried to get me to invest with him in his Hermitage Capital. I refused and warned him my model was forecasting the collapse of Russia, which ended up as the Long-Term Capital Management collapse.

Safra-Berezovsky

If it were not for the “meddling” in the 2000 Russian election blackmailing Yeltsin not to run and install Berezovsky as President to control the natural resources of Russia, Putin would never be in charge to begin with today. Berezovsky fled to Britain where he supposedly hung himself and Safra died in Monaco. There were several others who died as well. So Putin’s comments regarding the 2000 election he did not give details. I did in the Forecaster and the movie will be a fast-paced international thriller.

EU Proves It Has Become an Authoritarian Government


The European Commission President JEAN-CLAUDE Juncker, has come out and boldly stated that Poland and Hungary and their refusal to take in a single refugee person under a plan agreed in 2015 to relocate 160,000 asylum-seekers from Italy and Greece, said: “Those who do not want to accept people with a different skin colour or a different belief come from a world of ideas that I do not consider compatible with the EU’s original mission.” Juncker further said that if the refugee crisis existed previously and Poland and Hungary refused to accept the refugees, they would have been denied membership.

The entire refugee crisis was created by Angela Merkel. It was never presented for a vote to the member states. The EU has proven that there is no right to vote and it has become an unelected government with authoritarian powers. Juncker never stands for election by the people. The establishment of the EU government is its a throw-back to the days of kings claiming the divine right to rule.

Meanwhile, estimates of refugees who would still migrate to Europe range in the 30 to 35 million. This indeed seems high for that is 10% of the population of the United States. Even if it is half that amount, it would break the economy of Europe and crush it into dust. You have and excess of people totally unfamiliar with Western culture or with a skill set capable of the 21st century.

Public Education Has Always Been a Weapon Employed by the State


COMMENT: I found your comment on public education fascinating. Has it been a tool for centuries to alter the minds of children?

ANSWER: Yes. There have been plenty of examples restricting what can be taught and what is prohibited. Joseph Stalin is famous for his state control of education. He boldly stated: “Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.”

The trial of Socrates (399 BC) was held to determine the philosopher’s guilt on two charges: (1) asebeia (impiety) against the pantheon of Athens, and (2) corruption of the youth of the city-state. He was charged with “failing to acknowledge the gods that the city acknowledges” and “introducing new deities” which corrupted the ideas of the youth.

Education has been a tool of government for a very, very long time.

Grenfell Tower Fires Exposes Government Corruption


At least 58 people are feared to have died in the fire that engulfed Grenfell Tower this past week. Prime Minister Theresa May admitted that the government response was appalling. There is mounting anger growing that many are saying that people were told to stay in their apartments and died as a result. They are also exposing the fact that there were no sprinklers to combat the fire. On top of that, many see this as a plot to get them out of a rich neighborhood.

The building is a government property managed by Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (KCTMO) which was formed in 1996. KCTMO manages 9,459 properties for the council, according to its business plan, and is the largest tenant management organisation in England. It was refurbished last year but no sprinkler system was installed. The issue here is similar to the World Trade Center crisis. In both cases, we are looking at government owned properties. If such properties were privately owned, the management would be thrown in prison. Because we are looking at government ownership, no such outcome is likely. Government can avoid building codes to save money that no private construction company could possible get away with.

The people are turning this into a rich v poor issue rather than looking a bit deeper.

This is another example of just how corrupt government has become.

 

Grenfell Protests – May Must Go


 

The protests are rising and Theresa May failed to go talk to the people right away while Jeremy Corbyn was there on TV crying with the people. He had proposed refurbishing the government housing and sprinklers should be installed last year and it was knocked down. People are blaming austerity. They are demanding an inquest, not a public inquiry. People feel that a public inquiry behind closed doors will hide the truth once again.

The Fate of Britain

We just released our report on in Britain. The markets were showing a very bearish outlook ahead and this was strange if not irreconcilable with the bullish view of BREXIT. We put it all together and warned that the Conservatives may end up being replaced by Labour and we can see Britain turn very hard left toward Marxism. This is a very important report for it goes into the pound on the cross rates with the dollar, euro, Swiss and the yen. In addition, we covered the Long Gilts and the share market. The timing seems incredible given the events following the release of this report.

Tony Blair was a socialist and took Labour to the center right. He achieved concessions from unions no Conservative could have ever accomplished. But Corbyn wants a maximum wage and intends to take Labour back to the 1970s and its extreme Marxist positions. Installing a maximum wage to prevent high paying jobs seems insane. It’s all about punishing accomplishment rather than raising the living standard. The definition of the “rich” will drop from £145,000 to £80,000 and raising the corporation tax from 19% to 26%. He wants 50% tax on anyone who earns more than £123,000. Inheritance taxes will be lowered from £850,000 tax free to £425,000 and anything above that will be 40%. This will wipe out small businesses preventing them from continuing and that applies to farmers as well. Raising taxes to this magnitude will surely lead to the migration of top-end positions out of London.

French Parliament Elections Tomorrow June 18th


Macron was hoping to have a super majority that his new party would sweep the election to give him ultimate power. However, the latest poll taken by BFMTV showed a stunning 61% of French voters did not want the 39-year-old’s party to take the National Assembly. The majority of French voters have said they will vote against Macron’s party to prevent a “crushing” majority in parliament. Most have responded that they would vote for a rival party in the second round in a bid to “rectify” the the decision.

It is looking more and more that the vote for Macron was not in support of him handing sovereignty to Brussels. The election point overlooked by everyone is the fact that Le Pen beat ALL mainstream parties. There is no mandate for the surrender of rights in France to a new Federalized Europe. The election is this Sunday, June 18th. We will see the results soon.

Even Switzerland has Gone Stalinistic


 

The Swiss voted to allow a new oversight of the Federal Intelligence Service to spy domestically for security, of course. There were promises that this would be subject to an independent control to ensure it was not abused and become a Stalinistic power. Well, it turns out that the “independent” supervision is just an internal department subject to the same boss. The new powers are to allow the government to intercept all phone calls, read e-mails and SMS messages, as well as to hack into personal computers. It does not matter what government we look at. The entire world has gone mad. Stalin must be smiling from above for his paranoia worrying about what people were thinking is the new standard of intelligence operations in the West.

Minority Report Becomes Reality in Japan – Prosecution Before You Commit a Crime


The plot of the movie Minority Report was a SciFi flick that in the future they used physics to monitor the world and report if someone was going to commit a crime. Now Japan is doing that but without the physics – just bureaucrats. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s government passed the most outrages legislation perhaps in the world. This empowers prosecutors to monitor and arrest people in the planning stages of crimes. That is perhaps the most anti-Human rights act you can possibly imagine. Effectively, an enemy can bribe some bureaucrat to arrest you and imprison you for life claiming you were planning to commit a crime, but took no action.

The government of course is calling this as necessary as a counter-terrorism act ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. You simply cannot trust government to EVER wield such power. Abe has also been looking to revise the constitution and remove the restraints imposed upon Japan at the end of World War II that confined its forced to 200 miles from its shores. Abe wants that removed by 2020 as well. The Olympics are being used to wipe away human rights in Japan and hand more authoritarian power to government.

It looks like we should eliminate the Olympics to preserve our rights

The Rising Movement Against Soros



In Hungary, NGOs (non-governmental organizations) will have to be registered in court and their foreign donors will be disclosed. The Hungarian Parliament adopted what many are calling the most controversial laws of recent years. Prime Minister Viktor Orban, advocated the so-called NGO Law that obligates non-governmental organizations with more than 24,000 euros per year from outside the country to declare their most important foreign donors annually and to declare themselves as “an organization benefiting from foreign financing”. If they do not comply with this obligation, they will be closed in Hungary. The so called blueprint for the law comes from Russia, where foreign-funded institutions are branded as “enemy agents”. NGOs in Hungary have to register themselves from now on, and on their website they will be able to use the term “foreign-funded organization”.

There are a lot of people up in arms over this. But there is a serious problem of organization such as that of George Soros trying to fund revolutions and government subversion movements. There have been foreign fundings of civil unrest in the United States against Trump. Obama funded activists in Canada to overthrow the conservatives. Clinton help Tony Blair and the Labour Party beat John Major, and we certainly cannot forget all the screaming about Russian interference in the 2016 election that defeated Hillary.

Macedonia 3-26-2017

The EU Commission and the United Nations have both strongly criticized the bill. They actually say it is designed against Orban’s intimate enemies, namely the Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros. The foundations of Soros claim to support numerous human rights organizations and environmental protection groups in Hungary, but it also funds anti-government movements. Orban had just said recently that Soros “and his agencies” were an opaque component in the public life of Hungary. It was Soros supporting more refugees moving into Hungary.

The EU had complained that the “NGO Transparency Act” was far beyond the goal of securing financial transparency. This would also limit the legitimate political activities of groups that are exposed to a constant, hostile campaign by the Orban government. The government made some concessions to Brussels whereas donations under €1700 would no longer need to be reported separately. The rule is that all “groups financed abroad” will not be eligible for state funding in Hungary.

We are seeing these laws in other places as well. Trump has banned American politicians from lobbying for foreign government for up to five years after leaving office. Human rights groups and activists in Egypt are accusing the government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi for effecting a law that regulates the work of non-governmental organizations. Clearly, there is a huge difference between helping people and creating political unrest. The Egyptian measure restricts NGO activity to developmental and social work and introduces jail terms of up to five years for non-compliance. The law also gives the government power over deciding who can establish an NGO and for what purpose. Similar laws were installed in Russia as well.

After all the yelling by the Democrats in the USA that Putin interfered in the US election, NGOs are clearly something that is a grey area, which has been exploited for political purposes using the cover of humanity.

The Right to Vote Should Attach to Only Those Who Pay Taxes


There is a rising tied that many people are not paying attention to. That is the rising unrest among the youth. The problem with allowing the youth to vote on economic issues is simply they want to rob others so they have their free world. In Britain, they have been fighting to bring the age to vote down to 16. How can someone make any intelligent decision concerning the fate of the nation before they even have a job and pay taxes?

When it comes to war and if they are to fight such a war, then absolutely, they should have a right to vote. But when it comes to economic policies, you should not be allowed to vote unless you pay taxes. If you do not have a job, it is always easy to demand socialism to go rob someone else who has what you want. If you walked down a street and you are grabbed and told you cannot leave until you hand over money, isn’t that a crime? Yet somehow we elect politicians who will do that exact thing under threat of imprisonment if you do not hand over whatever they demand.

 

Hoe can a man write a book and explain how it feels to go through childbirth? It’s impossible! The same applies to voting. If you want to vote on anything that involves economics, you should have a stake in the process by paying taxes. Otherwise, go to your party with friends and complain about the world until you are old enough to know what the world really is.

Allowing everyone who has no stake in the game vote against others who do, it not Social Justice – it is servitude. Sorry, it is not no vote no hope, it is no vote if not responsible.
