Uganda Blocks Facebook – They Should Not Say Who Can Be Heard of Not in Our Country

Armstrong Economics Blog/BigTech Re-Posted Jan 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

The tyranny unleashed by Facebook, Google, and Twitter is unimaginable. What right do they have to censor people around the world and block anyone with whom they disagree? Zuckerberg and Dorsey will go down in history as tyrannical leaders who have sought to rule the dialog of the entire world. They have no such right and more and more countries need to stand up and block them from even being seen in their countries. Only then will the shareholders of these entities wake up and realize that they are being complicit in absolute tyranny which is a violation of human rights internationally. Especially when Bill Gates has targeted Africa to reduce the population.

EU to Impose Travel Ban without Vaccine

Armstrong Economics Blog/Tyranny Re-Posted Jan 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Manfred Weber (CSU) of Germany has joined the initiative from Greece to grant all citizens vaccinated against Corona free travel in Europe. He was also seeking a ban on plastics. He has joined the movement to introduce a new EU-wide vaccination certificate. “We support the proposal of the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis for an EU-wide recognized vaccination certificate that enables free travel in the Schengen area,” he told the Bild newspaper. The alternative is that “every country sets its own rules, a fragmentation that nobody wants,” he added. According to the information, the topic will be discussed by the 27 heads of state and government on January 21, 2021, at a virtual EU special summit.

We are approaching the very same exact policy of Adolf Hitler. The freedom to travel will be suspended using COVID as the excuse to keep you safe from non-conformers. I stated that our 2020 WEC in Orlando may be the last. I could see what was coming and it is arriving rapidly. To stop civil unrest and the threat of revolution, they are going to use COVID to restrict movement. They are turning our free society into a prison camp and there is nobody willing to stand up in our defense. This is why Schumer and Pelosi are doing their utmost to crush all resistance — “Papers, please!”

This is the collapse of our free society. It is over. Socialism is unsustainable so they are moving to authoritarianism. Everything is unfortunately on schedule. May God have mercy upon humanity.

Is a Total Lockdown Coming to the USA?

Armstrong Economics Blog/Civilization Re-Posted Jan 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

After a year of lockdowns and the destruction of jobs on a wholesale basis, Bill Gates wrote that we have not done enough. CO2 did not decline to demonstrate that this entire exercise to use a virus as the excuse to crush the economy to “BUILD BACK BETTER” has failed. Like some medieval doctor who would bleed his patients, they would keep bleeding to relieve the poison in the blood they imagined was there. If the patient died, it was never because they took too much blood, it was because they did not bleed them soon enough.

This is now a clear effort to crush all resistance, not to heal the nation. Our computer is showing a serious turning point both in February and then April/May. It is looking more and more like we will have a total lockdown in the West that will be to suppress CO2 but using the new strain of COVID. When CO2 still does not decline, they will then blame China and Russia along with Brazil.

The Democrats ran telling the world NOBODY would have died from COVID had Trump did his job. It is absurd to think they will allow things to go on the way they were. Sources are telling us that they are looking at a total lockdown of the United States to destroy more jobs and bring the CO2 levels down. You should make sure you have ample food, for there maybe even a major trucker strike by March.

Based on Bill Gate’s character and stories that leaders have been bribed and threatened, as stated by Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko and stories coming from Africa, show that this is a global coup to impose their environmental dictates upon the entire world. Destroying the American consumer will have a major economic decline for the entire world into 2022, and NOBODY will stand up to defend the people against this wholesale corruption. You CANNOT wipe out our civilization and build it back better in a year or two. It takes decades for this to unfold even naturally and centralized control by governments makes it worse — just look at why communism failed because of centralized control.

GOP Cutting Off POTUS to Spite Their Face

Re-Posted from JAN 13, 2021 AT 9:41 AM


In a disgusting display of virtue signaling, many Republicans have said they will vote to impeach President Trump.

A legion of these backstabbers have now joined forces with Nancy Pelosi, who wants the president removed immediately, even though his term expires in a handful of days. It’s bad enough that Pelosi’s latest power play is a slap in the face to the millions of us who voted for Trump, but to see a legion of Republicans helping her in her effort is downright despicable.

The first rat to jump ship was Mitch McConnell. Ol’ turtle head was never on the side of Trump—not really. He has strong ties to China and wants to return to globalism and send our jobs back to that communist country. He wants to continue running an expensive empire in terms of money and lives to benefit the military industrial complex. He wants to serve the interests of large global corporations while lining his pockets. In other words, he wants business as usual and his business, like Biden’s, is corruption.

The Republican Party is quickly reverting back to what they were—a New World Order neocon party in lockstep with the Democrats, a neoliberal, socialist and globalist party.

Both are on the same page. Both have contempt for most Americans, whom they consider to be their subjects. Trump was a billionaire, but he brought back jobs and a sense of national pride to millions of average Americans. We all had great hopes that he would drain the Swamp and restore our Republic, but he wasn’t part of the globalists’ ‘Big Club.’ Therefore he was run through a political ringer of lies for four years as the Democrats tried to impeach him at every turn. A few Republicans helped him half-heartedly, but it became clear that they were only marking time.

Now the Republican hearts have turned ice cold on the president. Most of them have become ‘never Trumpers.’ Or perhaps more accurately, ‘never again Trumpers.’ Both parties want to see to it that he doesn’t run again and they may get their way. There will be consequences, however. Many of us will not be voting for their candidates again. I voted for Senator Daines here in Montana and he became one of the backstabbers. Shame on you, Daines.

It is apparent that saving the Republic will be up to “we the people”, not the politicians.

Schumer Begins the Domestic Terrorist Act – No Fly List

Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Jan 13, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Schumer is calling anyone who was in the Capitol Building are “insurrectionists” despite the fact the police let them inside and most were taking selfies. Most do not appear to be threats other than they voted for Trump. To ban these people from ever getting on an airplane smells of what is to come. This is following precisely AOC’s call to create lists of people who supported Trump for retaliation. They are pushing the limits which will only split the country even more. This is not a government that represents everyone – only select philosophies. This is grossly exaggerating this event calling everyone an “insurrectionist” without Due Process of Law. That in itself is unconstitutional. Schumer and Pelosi are simply acting politically trying to remove a president who will be gone in 7 days. This is absurd.

Now Bill Gates Comes out – Climate Change is Worse than COVID

Armstrong economic Blog/Forecasts Re-Posted Jan 13, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Now that Trump is defeated, we will see them move to the next excuse to crush the economy — climate change. Bill Gates, in his GatesNotes, wrote: “What’s remarkable is not how much emissions will go down because of the pandemic, but how little,” Gates wrote. “The relatively small decline in emissions this year makes one thing clear: We cannot get to zero emissions simply—or even mostly—by flying and driving less.” That’s not to say that reducing consumption of fuel that emits carbon gas emissions is not a worthy goal, just that it is not enough, Gates said.

In other words, the goal here is to crush the economy, and any BUILD BACK BETTER will take decades at best, and not months.

Will Biden Lockdown the Country in February?

Armstrong Economics Blog/Uncategorized Re-Posted Jan 13, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

We have to face reality. Joe Biden may not really be in charge as was the case with Bush Jr. His advisers are already laying out how to pay for a “brief” lockdown of 6 weeks. This agenda of locking the world down came from the climate activists spearheaded by Bill Gates through the World Economic Forum. It appears that they will introduce policies in February. Don’t forget, they used COVID to beat Trump claiming it was all his fault and all deaths were because of him. Given that rhetoric, it is hard to see how they would maintain the same policy of openness.

2021 – The Choppiness Ahead

Armstrong Economics Blog/Forecasts Re-Posted Jan 12, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION #1: OK. Now what? The Democrats seem to be just vindictive and do not represent all the people. Any thoughts on the future?


QUESTION #2:  Hello Martin.
You and Socrates are the only sane people/AI in a totally insane world for the time being. Thanks for that.
From a Swedish perspective, it is completely absurd what we see unfolding in Washington DC among these corrupt politicians. If Trump leaves without some security guarantees, they will probably chase him and his entire family all the way to hell with various accusations, lawsuits, and maybe even arrests. Maybe he can make an art of the deal with Pence and let him step in 24 hours before noon 20th and pardon Trump and his family against all possible accusations or maybe even make an art of the deal with Biden, for the good of the country, etc.

What do you think and what does Socrates say?


ANSWER: Trump’s biggest flaw is he does not know when to stop. Think a rally would show he had support was not necessary because he had the support and a number of Republicans were going to contest the vote despite the fact it would not win. All the conspiracy theories that Pence would just unilaterally declare Trump the winner were absurd. That was a fringe opinion at best. I stated that once the Supreme Court rejected the Texas suit it was over. The absurd statements that they were telling him how to bring the suit were obviously made up by people that do not understand the law. I do think he should step down, cut a deal with Pence, get a pardon for him and his family. The press will never allow him to come back.

However, the Democrats are exhibiting the same flaw at the very start of their term as Trump. The political winds have shifted masterfully and I would not doubt that someone orchestrated the breach of the Capitol knowing it would discredit all Trump supporters and open a clear path for the Democrats to act like dictators. Rarely does it get more favorable for a party than the Democrats now enjoy! Besides winning control of the White House and both the House and Senate, Joe Biden will get the Cabinet and judges he wants and the path is open to tax changes as well as rules in the Senate to silence the Republicans completely. Media is their lapdog and can be counted on to cheer whatever Biden says and every move he makes. They interfered in the election far more than they accused the Russians. Likewise, BigTech is expecting their payoff in the form of entering banking.

I have warned that “Trumpism” pre-existed Trump – it is the anti-establishment movement that can be traced back to Andrew Jackson. The Republican Party is in shambles because they blame everything on Trump and in the process will disavow the very reforms people have sought. The computer shows an absolutely disastrous two years ahead. The Democrats are blinded by their dictatorial power when in fact they never won a mandate. Nevertheless,  they will push forward to change the face of America and in the process, this is not going to be so easy and they are celebrating right now.

House Democrats failed Monday in their first bid to punish President Trump after his supporters were allowed into the Capitol they wish to characterize as an insurrection when it seemed more like a Woodstock fest with people taking selfies rather than actually overthrowing the government unarmed. Nevertheless, Pelosi is being very vindictive not to just demoralize Trump, but by attempting to make him the first president ever to be impeached twice, she is really trying to discredit. the anti-establishment sentiments in the nation.

Our computer is showing a very choppy year ahead. On top of that, the economy will continue to decline into 2022. What we will see is what I have warned about. Republics are the WORST form of government for they pretend they are democratic, but they are ruthless tyrannical regimes. I continue to warn that you should not be allowed to change the system structurally without a 2/3rd vote. Even to amend the Constitution requires 38 states out of 50 of 76%. Congress should not be allowed to change the rules to end filibusters to usher in an authoritative dictatorship with 50.4% of the vote. This will still lead to violence and the Supreme Court should have ruled on the evidence yes or no. Refusing to take the case leaves both sides convinced about the other. That is not a government that will represent everyone.

VP Mike Pence Rejects Speaker Pelosi Request for 25th Amendment Against President Trump

U.S. Chamber of Commerce Will Stop Financial Support for Congress Members Who Support President Trump

Posted originally on The Conservative Tree House on January 12, 2021 by Sundance

It should come as no surprise the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (CoC) would join hands with leftist democrats & begin withholding financial support for congressional representatives who supported President Trump.   You might remember in August of 2020 when the CoC admitted to supporting far-left democrats in the 2020 election cycle.

WASHINGTON DC – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the powerful pro-business [multinational] lobbying group, said Tuesday it will halt political contributions to certain lawmakers following the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol last week.

“There are some members that by their actions will have forfeited the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Period, full stop,” Neil Bradley, chief policy officer at the Chamber, said in a press conference.

[…] “It’s also a mistake not to recognize the elected officials who really stood up in very trying and difficult circumstances and we’re going to continue to operate a program that supports them and helps them in our efforts to lead our country,” he said. (read more)
