Riptide in the World Economy


Armstrong Economics Blog/Understanding Cycles Re-Posted Sep 20, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: Marty, I think the storms are creating dangerous rip currents that just suck swimmers out to sea here in Jersey. Never hear about that in Florida. I guess that and taxes are what made you leave. LOL

DK

REPLY: Actually, I was caught in one when I was a teenager. My uncle was perhaps 15 feet from me and the harder I swarm I was just standing still. Suddenly, the current shifted and I could move forward. It was not a great feeling and it was inv visible. There was a sand bar I was trying to walk to and was caught in a riptide between shore and that sand bar.

It was a valuable lesson in life. Sometimes we walk straight into the invisible which becomes life-threatening. Kind of like current events. I have been in the middle of this crowd, but I never expect that they would actually get this going in their personal direction so swiftly. It is one thing to forecast what the model says like the commodity boom post-2020 and the move toward authoritarianism. But to live through it is another thing altogether. It is fascinating to me to see it all laid out years in advance and then it unfolds according to plan. It is like that hidden riptide but in the world economy.

Rigging Elections


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Sep 20, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

There are allegations in California that Republicans found that they already allegedly voted Democrat, supporting Newsom. But this entire trend of rigging elections even goes back to the allegations that Pope Francis became pope to support this Socialist agenda at the perfect timing amidst similar allegations that the election was rigged. Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano has effectively called Francis an impostor. He has really altered the Catholic teachings dramatically and has been supporting the entire agenda of the World Economic Forum and Klaus Schwab. For a pope to venture into economics, spouting out Marxism, a theory that was atheist, makes one’s head spin around as in “The Exorcist.”

What I can say is that Pope Francis has joined this “equality” of material wealth as opposed to equality of human rights, which is in direct violation of the Ten Commandments. It does seem very strange for Pope Francis to constantly come out supporting this Gates/Schwab agenda that has nothing to do with religion.

The entire communist revolution seized all the churches and converted them into museums of atheism. The fact that Pope Francis has been preaching “equality” on a material level has many observing that he has abandoned the purpose of the salvation of the soul for the Marxist view of “equality” of materialism.

So was the election of the pope also rigged? Who knows. But what is clear is that this agenda would NEVER have been possible without removing Trump, for they needed the United States to support this agenda. In all of my discussions over decades, the view was that communism ONLY failed because they did not have the United States and Europe. If the entire world was Communist, then somehow Marx would have been vindicated.

Elections have been rigged for centuries. Even in the first Democracy, they attacked Pericles and banished him. During the elections in Rome of the Senate of 53 BC, only the elite voted. Interest rates DOUBLED because people were borrowing so much to fund bribes to rig the election. Another example is Sadam Hussein, who was also elected all the time.

We have all heard of redrawing voting lines to rig elections. Gerrymandering is a practice intended to establish an unfair political advantage for a particular party by manipulating the boundaries of electoral districts. This corruption was named after Elbridge Gerry, who was engaging in this corruption from the very start of the United States election process. As they say, where there is a WILL, there is also a WAY to make it happen. Those who deny that the election of 2020 was rigged and call it a Trump conspiracy are total fools. There are corrupt antics in EVERY election. The question has always been whether it was enough to change the outcome. To pretend that all elections are fair is simply the words of a complete fool.

What has emerged is simply using health and climate change to support a new dictatorship to achieve “equality” once again. If one person can cut your lawn and another is a brain surgeon, should they earn the same when 10,000 people could cut the lawn compared to one person who could be a brain surgeon?

Throughout history, such totalitarian regimes have always led to bloodshed, and they have always been overthrown by force, for, without human incentive, an economy cannot survive. No matter how many times this has been attempted throughout history, it always fails because it goes against human nature.

The Only People Wearing Masks At the Emmys Were Servants

Your children and grandchildren cannot eat in a public school cafeteria without wearing a mask and remaining socially distant; so sayeth the rule-makers.

However, proving once again that masks and social distancing are a theater of social construct that does not apply to the self-proclaimed elites, the only people wearing masks at the Hollywood Emmy awards tonight were the servants.

.

It’s not hypocrisy really.  The reality is the COVID-19 rules are based on perpetrating a ruse, a total and utter fraud.   They don’t believe their own message; because they know the rules they espouse to support do not apply to them.

Take away their pool cleaners, laundry service providers, lawn care workers, chauffeurs, gardeners, nannies and staff… and watch how quickly these same people will dispatch those rules. The comfortable existence within this “polite society” is dependent on the scruff neck working class, the dirty fingernail folk who know what Lava soap feels like, and the industrious service sector workforce who fulfill the needs of those who hold out their pinky fingers when they drink from a glass.

If those who are forced to live under a distinctly separate set of rules stop fulfilling the needs of the ‘betters’, guess what happens?  If there’s something we know about this crew – it’s how their hubris is their blindspot.  They can never think clearly through the details of their dictates, because they have never operated/lived in the place where the outcomes of those dictates surface. They make rules that are never implemented within their own tribe; this fact makes them extremely vulnerable.

Pushed far enough, decisions are reached…

Senate Parliamentarian Rules Immigration Amnesty Cannot Be Permitted in $3.5 Trillion Infrastructure Package


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on September 19, 2021 | Sundance | 90 Comments

It sounds obvious on its face, you cannot consider immigration reform as a spending bill, but that’s what the Democrats were attempting to do regardless of the constitutional limits.  Immigration reform is not a spending issue, and the Senate parliamentarian has denied the scheme by Senate Democrats in their $3.5 trillion “human infrastructure” bill. (pic: migrant caravan)

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats can’t use their $3.5 trillion package bolstering social and climate programs for their plan to give millions of immigrants a chance to become citizens, the Senate’s parliamentarian said late Sunday, a crushing blow to what was the party’s clearest pathway in years to attaining that long-sought goal.

The decision by Elizabeth MacDonough, the Senate’s nonpartisan interpreter of its often enigmatic rules, is a damaging and disheartening setback for President Joe Biden, congressional Democrats and their allies in the pro-immigration and progressive communities. It badly wounds Democrats’ hopes of unilaterally enacting — over Republican opposition — changes letting several categories of immigrants gain permanent residence and possibly citizenship.

The parliamentarian opinion is crucial because it means the immigration provisions could not be included in an immense $3.5 trillion measure that’s been shielded from GOP filibusters. Left vulnerable to those bill-killing delays, which require 60 Senate votes to defuse, the immigration language has virtually no chance in the 50-50 Senate.

In a three-page memo to senators obtained by The Associated Press, MacDonough noted that under Senate rules, provisions are not allowed in such bills if their budget effect is “merely incidental” to their overall policy impact. (read more)

The Importance of Fellowship and What Happens When Vaccine Passport Rules Creating Second Class Citizens are Demanded


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on September 19, 2021 | Sundance | 209 Comments

Every word of this monologue by Neil Oliver is so true.  I hope you will watch and stay with it, as it gets better as it gets deeper and more resolute.

For well over a year, CTH has been outlining the critical importance of fellowship.  The importance of the human connection that seems to have been purposefully torn apart.  I agree with Mr. Oliver in many points including that the lock-downs were purposefully orchestrated in order to make people feel isolated and alone.  When people are isolated, they become fearful.  Those who hold power tenuously need fear in order to keep control.

Mr. Neil Oliver eloquently explains his position that he will not participate in any system of forced or coerced division.   When encountering an institution, business or enterprise that demands vaccinated status as a precondition; we will not participate or lend credibility toward such an abusive fiat by complying with their dictate or demand.  Isolation starts with a rebellion against God, and we must be conscious about the human need to be connected.

I will not divide my humanity, nor concede my core view of fellowship, simply to comply with the demand of another that I consider my brother or sister of greater or less equity than myself.  Any business that chooses that path will not benefit from my economic participation.  I choose freedom!

Not only are various governmental agencies forcing the separation of people from their community networks, we are also seeing faith-based organizations, churches, buying into the fear. Even in areas where churches are not forcibly shut down, many are seeing a structural shift where some faith leaders are willingly ostracizing their community under the guise of various COVID alarms. This is not good…. not good at all.

Fellowship is the essential ingredient to a purposeful life. How and why we interact with each other is how and why we recharge our core humanity. To see faith leaders willing to separate from the function of fellowship is alarming. However, as individuals we must not allow this foreboding sense to become the normal expectation.

Throughout history, large armies have been defeated through the process of division. It is not a leap to see the same strategic objectives being deployed against social assemblies including congregations. It is puzzling how many in leadership cannot see the danger in social and spiritual distance when the bond of fellowship is needed more than ever.

Each of us has a different connection to our community. Each of us has a different level of internal strength… such is the nature of living. However, the distance between people is manifestly not a good outcome when combined with the lack of food for the soul.

Ultimately, it is the currency of human connection that is the true value in our lives.

We have each felt how our positive influence upon the lives of others nourishes our own sense of purpose and fulfillment.  Do not lose that. Do not think you can compensate for that through other arbitrary measures; you cannot.

With local, state and federal leaders moving beyond the workplace distance; and beyond the community distance; and beyond the church distance; and now entering your home to tell you the importance of separating yourself from your family, we must evaluate these arbitrary decrees very deliberately.

Evaluate very closely what we are willing to give up. Perhaps we are in this position today because we didn’t sit still enough and contemplate the real priorities in our lives.

Our liberty is inherent.

Our freedom is inherent.

The removal of both requires consent.

I choose not to disconnect.

I choose purpose.

I choose my own humanity.

The End of Democracy?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Sep 18, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Marty, I know you reported on the Canadian bill to suspend elections during a pandemic, do you think that is in the cards going ahead?

HS

ANSWER: I found it shocking that they would actually introduce such legislation in the first place. But what we have to understand is that this is part of the Schwab 2030 Agenda. I do not see how they would pull that off on all levels. The model is what they created in the EU where neither the European Commission nor the President is subject to popular election. They allow people to vote for MPs but they have no power to overrule the legislation from the Commission. So is that a real democracy or even a republic in the EU? It is nothing different from China.

I also do not see how they would be able to eliminate local politicians. As long as their power is confined, then they would retain that to pretend it was still a democracy. History repeats because the passions of people have never changed. Rome overthrew its “king” in 509BC and thereafter nobody would ever have the title of king. That is also in the American Constitution. Article I. Section IX Clause VIII states clearly:

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Now, when the Republic was overthrown and Imperial Rome began, the Emperors, not being kings in name, still created a monarchy that was inherited by their family the very same as a king. The titles on the coinage we can date BECAUSE they pretended to be elected. For example, COS XI meant he was elected consul for the 11th year in a row.

This is not my opinion nor is it some wild speculation. This is simply how history unfolds. Given such power, they will always gravitate to absolute power. For years I have shown the model that pointed to the start of a commodity boom in 2020 and that we were headed into an authoritarian period. As I have said before, growing up there were two families that were Jewish who fled to America from Germany because they saw where it was going. They told me that other Jews thought they were crazy and alarmists – today conspiracy theorists. It never returned to normal.

Also, for those who think that it was Hitler who invented forcing the Jews to wear a gold star marker, again that is history that simply repeats. Edward I (1272-1307) of England, the king of Brave Heart fame, also ordered the Jews to wear badges. He too eventually banned all Jews from England, confiscated all their wealth and lands, and anyone who had borrowed from the Jews had to repay that debt to the King.

So if you think this is all just my opinion, sorry to hear that. I suppose you will be one of the millions waiting for a return to normal like the Jews in Germany. There is no such return. Imposing COVID passports will be expanded and become PERMANENT. Just like imposing the Income Tax in 1913. Oh, we will only tax the rich and they will only have to pay 1%. By World War II, everyone was paying payroll taxes and the top tax rate hit 90% thanks to Marxism.

There will be no return to normal and history warns that the only way to restore human rights will be by violence. They will NEVER relinquish power peacefully. Sorry, all the protests will not deter them. They will lose because this system they are trying to impose is out of desperation for decades of fiscal mismanagement. But rather than reform for We the People, they have chosen the suppression of the people to retain power. NEVER in the history of the United States have we EVER seen armed fences to protect the politicians. These people will NOT simply hand back power. This in Chess is “check” which now compels the next move before it becomes checkmate unfortunately in so many countries with the USA being the least ready just yet. But this is the reality in many other countries now as we move into October.

Australian Politicians Becoming Absolutely Ruthless


Armstrong Economics Blog/Australia & Oceania Re-Posted Sep 18, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Australia is turning into East Germany. This appears to be deliberate and the politicians are clearly using COVID to impose totalitarianism. Australia will no longer be a free state and reliable sources insist that either all future elections will be suspended, or they will be rigged which is starting to become the norm as Joseph Stalin said. It does not matter how people vote, the real power lies with those who count the votes.

The Australian police are absolutely disgusting. They have become indistinguishable from the Nazi soldiers incapable of thinking for themselves and just following orders no matter what they say. The police in Australia have shown they are the most anti-democratic force next to Venezuela. None of this inspires confidence for international investment in Australia.

Another Coded Transmission From The Rebel Alliance – Intellectual Froglegs, Patriots Awaken

The rebellious insurgent, known as Joe Dan Gorman, has surfaced long enough to transmit another broadcast in a coded frequency only receivable by patriots with a funny-bone.  This natural filtration process ensures communists and leftists are incapable of receiving it.  The message comes from deep in the bunker of the underground network.

Whoopsie, Too Funny – Overzealous DC Stormtroopers Accidentally Target Undercover Fed Dressed Like Antifa Then Had to Pretend Like They Were Arresting Him


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on September 18, 2021 | Sundance | 547 Comments

First things first.  If there ever was an actual “insurrection”, a couple hundred patriots with axe handles would easily crush these out-of-shape DC riot goons dressed like teenage ninja turtles. Just sayin’…  Although, to be fair, a few of the groups did look like they just raided the costume surplus from the last Batman movie.

Today, the feds planted undercover operatives all over the DC mall in an effort to manipulate the crowd and set-up another “insurrection narrative.”  However, in a hilarious turn of events no one showed up to play.   As a result, there were more media looking for stories than actual protestors, and the DC riot police looked like knuckleheads on a scavenger hunt for Easter eggs.  Dummies.

Amid the over-the-top nonsense, the DC police did notice a suspicious man dressed in Antifa garb wearing a concealed firearm.  However, when they moved in to question him, the doofus had to admit he was an undercover federal agent and showed his badge.  That’s when things really got funny because the cops, now with a case of the sads, had to pretend like they were arresting him in order to retain appearances. It was all caught on camera.  WATCH:

Apparently, according to the Twitter, this is what happens when you throw an entrapment party and no one shows up.

.

I know it might be hard to believe, but it does get funnier than the Spaceballs extras video-taped above.

FBI Briefing instructions: “Look normal, as close to “cookout party dads” as possible.  Pick up your Kohl’s gift cards at the desk on your way out.  High socks preferred for optics. Remember boys, be invisible!”  “Alex, you take point on this one.”  “Got it!”  “Hey guys, lets all look the same, so that way we will look like everybody else”…

Government issued Ray-Ban’s… √

Squared away haircuts…. √

Black socks….  √

Govt approved wristwatches…  √

Inability to blend in, and look totally stupid…. √

Wait what…  why did that guy just say we look like “prouder boys”?

Australian Freedom Fighters Battle Totalitarian Tyranny and Government COVID Lockdowns, Protestors Overwhelm Police Efforts to Beat Them


Posted originally on the conservative tree house on September 18, 2021 | Sundance | 279 Comments

Things are getting spicy in Australia, specifically the town of Richmond in the Melbourne area.  Righteous anti-lockdown protestors took to the streets against thousands of armed police and heavily geared riot squads prepared to beat them into submission and stop their march {Direct Rumble Link}.

As the government stormtroopers corralled the peacefully marching protesters into an ever smaller dead end where there were blocked in all directions, a valiant member of the resistance opened a gateway through a housing division enabling the crowd to continue amassing, assembling more supporters and continue marching.

The police then formed a battle formation in the street attempting to cordon-off the remaining roadway and block the march from continuing.  However, after a few tense minutes of standoff the protesters rushed the police and fought their way through.  Google is attempting to block this video.  WATCH:

.

Fearful the nation of patriots would join in further rebellion, the Australian propaganda media were quickly called into action to defend the state regime.  The controlled media immediately began broadcasting sympathetic stories of how the police suffered injuries at the hands of the rowdy protestors who “were looking for a fight,” or so the officially recognized narrative is told.

“The police suffered broken bones and had to be transported to the hospital after they were assaulted by the angry mob,” that’s the official media statement you can see below.  However, the reality of what took place is 180° divergent from the state-run media story.  In fact, the peaceful marchers were being assaulted by the police all along their route.https://www.youtube.com/embed/XE1cj7vjuyY?feature=oembed

A video without commentary from AFP can be watched here.

Here’s a video of the police corralling the group, just prior to a gate being opened allowing them to continue marching:

The rebellious members of the Australian resistance movement are fighting for freedom….

….May their tribe increase !!
