Armstrong Economics Blog/Italy Re-Posted Oct 29, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
The Italian press is keeping the theme that anyone who dares to protest and complain about lockdowns is a worthless far-right person who does not deserve even to live. They have turned the police against the people by claiming anyone who resists is really a criminal. This is how tyranny unfolds. They demonize anyone who resists, and we are all just to lay down all our rights. All tyrannical governments in history have routinely turned anyone in opposition is a criminal — e.g., Stalin. This is what becomes the “new norm” and why revolutions will follow. It is just standard throughout history. Only when the police refuse to follow the decrees of the government will there is a bloodless revolution.

19Today we had another demonstration in Berlin. This time, people remained in their cars, busses, and trucks again along the Kurfürstendamm, Berlin’s most known shopping street. All people from the event as well as the tourism industry have joined. This is the response to the officially confirmed second lockdown starting from November, 2nd. Instead of people walking and they are banning such gatherings, this time they are driving vehicles down the street.Under the new lockdown, all restaurants, bars need to close. All entertainment such as cinemas, concert halls, theatres, operas, events will be closed. The swimming centers and gyms need to close. All sport team activities are banned and any private traveling is prohibited. Hotel stays are only allowed for business trips exclusively.German Lockdown 10-28-2020Attached is the official Lockdown Order of MerkelWith so many members of the German government coming out against Merkel, such as the German Minister of Health who admitted that the lockdowns were a mistake, one must question if Merkel has not been bribed. Now the data on the COVID situation and mortality in Germany has surfaced showing that there has “apparently never been an epidemiological emergency.” Nevertheless, we have to come to the realization that this has nothing to do with protecting people.
This appears to be intended to try to crush the economy so that the people will accept the crumbs being offered and sign on to this new world of totalitarianism promoted by the World Economic Forum and funded by Bill Gates. Big Tech are all lining up with Gates from Twitter, Facebook, and Google censoring any anti-comments about COVID-19. Destroying businesses on a wholesale basis seems to be intended to create this new world where you own nothing. They then seem to be looking at nationalizing the big ones that they also push against the wall. This is becoming one giant step forward to push Western Society into the waiting arms of Klaus Schwab. They overestimate their power and underestimate that it only takes 40% of the population to disagree and become active to overthrow a government – i.e. American and French Revolutions.At some point, the police and/or army will divide and wake up and realize that by oppressing the people just following orders as they claim at the Nuremberg Trials, they are also acting against their own families and destroying their future. That will be the tipping point.

Protest breakout in Naples after the government claimed that 2,000 have COVID-19 so they may lock down the region for 40 days and have imposed a curfew. These lockdowns have not stopped the virus but instead, prolong it. We see civil unrest rising around the world and this may lead to even overthrowing governments in many places.

Melbourne is defining the Madman of Australia who is a disgrace to the very idea of a free society. Andrews stands as a symbol of tyranny gone completely mad. In the name of protecting people, it has destroyed their jobs, their future, and Australia is already saying that international travel will be blocked for perhaps another year. Indeed, international travel is quickly becoming a fantasy perhaps even into 2022.

The riots in Rome have become intense. You would reason that any elected politician would think twice about imposing lockdowns after destroying an unbelievable number of jobs and small businesses that are vital in Italy and also counted on tourism which is non-existent anymore. Something is just not right. This is not the way elected governments have acted in the past.
A word from inside sources in Rome suggests that the governments in Europe are concerned about what happens if Trump wins. They are concerned that he is being viewed as a man of the people in contrast to the extreme draconian actions in Europe. A Trump victory, they fear, may inspire Europeans to demand freedom.

Wow, you want to say great job U.S. Marshals Service… but then you think about what exactly they are being thanked for, and “great job” seems prayerfully inappropriate.
Ohio State Attorney General, Dave Yost, has announced the results of a 50 agency anti human trafficking operation called “Operation Autumn Hope”, and while the results are excellent the underlying evil is almost unimaginable.
45 missing children were physically recovered in the Ohio operation along with 109 human trafficking survivors. [Media]
(Columbus Ohio) – […] “The success of Operation Autumn Hope is measured not only in the number of arrests but in the lives that were rescued from this evil,” Yost said. “Every agency on this team looks for the day when no person is bought and sold in Ohio. Don’t buy sex in Ohio!”
During the operation, the Central Ohio Human Trafficking Trask Force, Columbus PACT Unit and the Cuyahoga County Human Trafficking Task Force rescued 109 human trafficking victims and referred them to social services.
“These vulnerable members of our population usually slip through the cracks,” said Sgt. Dana Hess, director of the Central Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force. “This operation highlighted the vast number of potential victims and allowed law enforcement the opportunity to make contact and link them to services.”
Sondra Miller, president and CEO of the Cleveland Rape Center, whose agency was part of the social services network prepared to aid the rescued victims, said: “Survivors of rape and sex trafficking deserve to be believed and have access to justice. By holding offenders accountable and reducing demand for human trafficking, this operation prevented many others from being harmed.”
Across southern Ohio, 76 missing and exploited children cases were cleared, including 45 by physical recovery by the U.S. Marshal’s Service.
Among those missing included a 15-year-old girl missing from Cleveland whose recovery linked her and other possible victims to an individual in Columbus suspected of human trafficking; a 15-year-old male with two warrants who is a suspect in multiple shootings and a homicide; and a 14-year-old girl who was reported missing by the Lancaster Police Department who was recovered in Columbus within six hours of being reported missing.

The Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015 enhanced the U.S. Marshals’ authority to assist federal, state, and local law enforcement with the recovery of missing, endangered, trafficked or abducted children, regardless of whether a fugitive or sex offender was involved. The U.S. Marshals Service established a Missing Child Unit to oversee and manage the implementation of its enhanced authority under the act.
President Trump, former AG Jeff Sessions and current AG Bill Barr have unleashed the USMS to support their new authorities; they have been delivering strong results.
It must be remembered these operations have been taking place all over the country with the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) coordinating the cross-state agency efforts: Operation “Not Forgotten” rescued 39 children; Operation “Safety Net” recovered another 35; and now Operation “Autumn Hope” rescues another 45 missing children.
“This operation, with the cooperation of the law enforcement agencies, social services, and non-governmental organizations, has brought to the forefront the realities of human trafficking and the exploitation of trafficking victims. Together, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and its partners will continue with its victim-centered approach and ensure that traffickers, here in Ohio and beyond, face justice for their criminal acts.”
~ Vance Callender, Special Agent in Charge for HSI in Michigan and Ohio
Meanwhile, last week 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, after the announcement not a single media reporter asked a question about why this national center was so urgently needed. The media just got up and walked out.
Great work in Ohio by the U.S. Marshals Service. There is some slight solace in knowing we have at least one federal law enforcement institution effectively working on behalf of our nation. The politically disinterested politicians, and their media bootlickers, should be ashamed of their lack of forceful engagement on this issue.
Secure our border !
Save our kids !
Save our nation!

Business confidence in Europe is in crash mode. Over half of Europe’s small firms fear for survival, survey finds. They seem to be correct. This Great Reset is designed to crush the economy and rebuilding it if “green” from the bottom. They label anything that dares to say the obvious as a “conspiracy theory” so they need not answer any of this. A “conspiracy theory” was something that was not remotely possible and was way out there beyond even alien abductions. Here, we need only take what they are saying and ask are politicians this stupid that they cannot see what they are doing to the average person?
The authoritative actions of politicians and the forced denial of human rights are far worse than if we were invaded by a foreign power. Khrushchev was correct, but it is not the lower classes doing this, it is the academics in league with the Big Tech companies offering technology to track every person to prevent any possible uprising in the future.

COMMENT: Hi Martin,
I’m in Canada and we just got back from a trip to the USA. I just read your post “New Bill Gives Immunity to Military Over Australians During Emergencies & Canada Internment Camps”.
They do indeed have camps for us! But they aren’t JUST for international travelers who don’t have a place to quarantine. I received a form from customs officers that say if we violate any part of the quarantine measures we will be transferred “to a quarantine facility”. I took screenshots of the form if you would like to share with others, I just don’t know how to send you the photos.
REPLY: Thank you. We have a lot of Canadians who need to know.
