The Fraud In Chief

Re-Posted from JAN 21, 2021 AT 9:06 AM

It was fortunate for Biden that there were thousands of troops at the capitol for his swearing in ceremony. If they had not been there it would have been a starkly empty sight. Similar to his campaign appearances, few people showed up. That’s because China Joe is not popular with Americans regardless of party affiliation. Sleepy Joe’s campaign trail mostly took place in his own basement. He knew the election would be rigged in his favor, so he didn’t have to expend an inordinate amount of energy on winning the hearts of voters.

Trump pardoned foul-mouthed rappers but failed to pardon Assange and Snowden. That’s disgraceful. Julian Assange is a real journalist who heroically made us more aware of Hillary’s corruption. Yet she wasn’t locked up. The Swamp wasn’t drained. The Swamp will now retain power permanently and try to drain us. We can’t vote them out because our voting system has been compromised. There’s no sense in voting for Trump’s “Patriot Party” until we get rid of the mail-in ballot abuse as well as the computer voting. We need to stick to paper ballots and voter ID at polling stations.

Regardless, we now have to deal with a very corrupt Biden who is already undoing all the good Trump accomplished. The lying corporate media are gushing over Biden and his cabinet picks. Many Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Michael Moore are eager to pursue a purge of Trump’s followers. They want strip us of our jobs, our remaining freedoms, and send us to reeducation camps. That’s what communists do. They love sending their enemies to gulags.

Look for Biden and his party of totalitarianism to continue their compromise of conservative free speech. There will also be false flags leading to gun confiscation. He will push for mandatory vaccination. It’s not a pleasant situation. We conservatives can’t depend on politicians, the military, or the courts to help us. If we are to restore the Republic then we must first stop hoping that someone else will save it for us. To even have a chance we must first stick together and save ourselves. We are the patriots in charge.

—Ben Garrison

Tina’s Take-  Remember Biden and the rest of the traitors looked like they were at a funeral yesterday.

Biden’s inaugural speech was extremely low energy. Watch this video of a body language expert’s analysis  and make up your own mind. Why wasn’t everyone happy? They “won” right?

“The Crime Has Been Completed”

No matter what happens, we will never give up. Hold the line. This is just the beginning..why would Trump KEEP saying “The Best is YET to Come”

Do your own research. AND keep the faith!

The Confusion & the 180-Degree Turn

Armstrong Economics Blog/Markets by Sector Re-Posted Jan 22, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

The market will come to a decision probably in Feb/March about just how crazy Biden will get. The greatest fear is they will pump up the numbers of COVID to justify a national lockdown following the WHO and Europe which is really all about crushing the economy for the purpose of Build Back Better green. That means they will DELIBERATELY destroy jobs and there lies the decision of capital and where to flee. We are already starting to pick up capital flows from Europe into China buying Chinese debt yielding 3% which is attractive against negative yields in Europe.

Trump Administration Accomplishments _ The White House

Despite Biden’s claim of inclusion during his inauguration, he has immediately set out to reverse everything Trump ever did. He instantly removed Trump’s list of Accomplishments that were on the White House site. I had to use the Way Back Machine to retrieve them. That is not something any other president has even done.

Then Biden authorized a secret hidden message in its HTML code on his WhiteHouse.GOV site. It simply said for anyone who would look at the HTML code: “If you’re reading this, we need your help building back better.” Following that secret code led me to their application.

  • Construction at the Border Wall has STOPPED.
  • Illegal Immigrants will be counted in the United States Census.
  • The Keystone Pipeline has been CANCELED → thousands of jobs will be destroyed.
  • Rejoined the World Health Organization that helped China cover up their terrible handling of the Coronavirus.
  • Reversed the travel ban to keep radical terrorist groups out of the United States.
  • Imposed negative COVID Test on all persons traveling to USA

Then Biden says he will defeat the NRA which defends the 2nd Amendment. The NRA has suddenly discovered that anyone on the LEFT’s hit list better get out of any Democratic state. The NRA was trying to move to Texas and a New York judge refused to dismiss the case by the States of New York against them. That declaration has a real panic going in in the arms industry. However, his first day went on a rampage to reverse everything Trump did. Counting illegal aliens in the census increases the Congressional seats to represent people who are not legally allowed to vote! This seems to benefit California and creates more Democrats but they really do not represent the illegal aliens. The civil unrest has not subsided in Portland. The extreme left is rioting against Biden already.

Then at the Janet Yellen confirmation for Treasury Secretary, the questions included taxing unrealized capital gains. That sent the cryptocurrencies into crash mode. This is effectively a wealth tax which means that there is no point in investing. That would cause such a collapse in the stock market that the one good thing would be to watch how much Gates, Zuckerberg, and Dorsey lose in the blink of an eye. I seriously doubt that even the conservative Democrats would vote for that. Anyone with 10% of a brain would pull their donations to the Democrats.

All eyes are on Biden right now and he signed an executive order appointing Jeffrey D. Zients as the official Covid-19 response coordinator who will report to the president. He is supposed to put in an effort to “aggressively” gear up the nation’s response to the pandemic. That has capital in fear right now. The order also restores the directorate for global health security and biodefense at the National Security Council. Biden is doing his best to outright reverse whatever Trump had done which included disbanding that element in addition to withdrawing from the UN’s WHO. Of course, they are painting Trump as evil, but in fact, corruption at the WHO is legendary. It was Ronald Reagan who first withdrew from the WHO which was mysteriously restored by Bush Sr because he was a career politician as it was suspected. Trump withdrew and no Biden, another career politician, is restoring this agency when the head of it is not even a medical doctor. The number of flu cases is minimal because everything is being attributed to COVID.

Worse still, Biden also put Anthony S. Fauci in charge of the U.S. delegation to the WHO’s executive board. Fauci’s ties to Bill Gates who is the #1 donor to the WHO after Trump cut off its funding demonstrates that Gates is still in charge and his Build Back Better is the marketing slogan put out for world leaders from the World Economic Forum. Any hope of independence has evaporated on the first day. If Biden adopts Gates’s idea of blocking the sun, we have to do something. I would suggest that dimming the sun is probably grounds for international war since Gates and Biden cannot make such a decision for the entire world. When the people realize they traded Trump for Gates, I think they will have second thoughts in 2022.

The WHO already previously came out and tied climate change to COVID. We need to keep an eye on Gates and the WHO along with John Kerry and just how far will they push the climate change agenda using the virus to shut down the economy to reduce CO2. Gate is already out there claiming that Climate Change is far worse than COVID.

The WHO is outright joining the virus with climate change. This is absurd for a health organization and it is demonstrating the corruption in the WHO. This pandemic has destroyed so many jobs, but it has also ignited a massive migration out of New York City.

Biden has also moved to a national mask mandate, which would most likely fall to a legal challenge as unconstitutional. There is no evidence that masks even work and the manufacturers clearly state that they will not prevent disease.  Nevertheless, Biden is requiring also social distancing and the wearing of masks on all federal property and by all federal employees. He is also starting a “100 days masking challenge” urging all Americans to wear masks and state and local officials to implement public measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

All of this chaos is a 180-degree turn in politics that is very hard for the financial markets to take into account. Our models suggest that we are probably going to see a decisive move come Feb/March.

Here We Go – 10 Executive Orders To Federally Weaponize COVID Against Us

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 21, 2021 by Sundance

One of the bigger issues never fully grasped by many Americans was President Donald Trump’s restraint in relation to the power of the federal government under the guise of COVID-19 action.  No president in our lifetime was ever more reluctant to weaponize the opportunity to expand government; Donald Trump stood the gap.

CTH warned since last summer of the ramifications if a leftist group used COVID-19 to expand federal power over peoples lives and livelihoods.  Today, JoeBama’s team has unleashed a series of TEN EXECUTIVE ORDERS fully weaponizing the opportunity.

(1) Executive order on COVID worker Safety, weaponized Dept of Labor, OSHA.  Literally word-for-word what CTH predicted.   [Predictions HERE and HERE]

(2) Executive order on COVID school safety, weaponized the Dept of Education. Leverages federal funds, grants.  Supports the education labor union effort. Exactly as expected.

(3) Executive order creating COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force.  Weaponizing the HHS takeover; the Secretary of Agriculture, the Secretary of Labor, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, the Secretary of Education, the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.  Again, exactly as predicted.

(4) Executive order using National Health Crisis as a security threat.  Weaponizing the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, the Secretary of Homeland Security.

(5) Executive order taking over National Guard.  The domestic terrorists need a category within the health emergency.  The isolation and detainment camps need security. “Support of Operations or Missions to Prevent and Respond to the Spread of COVID-19. (a) The Secretary of Defense shall, to the maximum extent feasible and consistent with mission requirements (including geographic proximity), request pursuant to 32 U.S.C. 502(f) that all State and territorial governors order National Guard forces to perform duty to fulfill mission assignments.”

(6) Executive order taking control of travel.  “The Secretary of Labor, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Secretary of Transportation (including through the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)), the Secretary of Homeland Security (including through the Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Commandant of the United States Coast Guard).

You can read the rest HERE.

Here’s the earlier warning:

There is a COVID-19 virus; however, COVID is not more dangerous than all other flu-like viruses that impact the respiratory system. COVID-19 is very manageable and doesn’t carry a higher fatality rate.  [Usefulness As A Narrative]

Why is COVID-19 being disproportionately hyped as such a dangerous threat, when the reality of the statistical danger is much less than the intense level of hype?… That is the key question.

The answer is… social changes under the guise of COVID-19 mitigation, are the entry point for the goals and aspirations of the political left on a national and global scale. COVID-19 is a virus, but also a very important political weapon, and we are about to discover exactly what the purpose of the hype is all about. What follows will help understand; and when you encounter the fear it will help to reconcile what people cannot figure out.

Joe Biden is an avatar; a political pawn; a cognitively declining guy who has no idea what is happening around him. The people behind the Biden campaign, those in real control of what this is about, have not hidden their goals and aspirations. These are not stupid people. They are scheming, conniving, ever-planning, ever-manipulating & Machiavellian types within the political system; lusting for power, influence and affluence.

What they are planning to do is weaponize COVID-19 to attain ideological objectives. This is why they hyped the fear within it for almost a year. Nothing within their plan requires the approval or consent of any representative body in Washington DC. COVID is the tool to “fundamentally change” the way the United States exists.

On October 23rd, those behind the Biden campaign dropped all pretense, openly having their candidate state publicly his intention to control the lives of all Americans using the authority of a weaponized federal government to advance national COVID-19 regulations.

As you watch this video from Biden’s campaign it is important to remember state government officials have already moved to define “essential businesses” and “essential workers” during the forced shut-downs. That is going to become a bigger issue downstream; however, for now just watch closely what Joe Biden is saying here:


The Dept of Transportation would be the agency enforcing a national interstate transit mask requirement. However, don’t focus on the DoT part of what he was saying… that’s only one creek… Instead focus on the downstream use of all federal regulatory agencies and how they align within a Federal COVID compliance network… that’s the river.

Think about the Dept of Agriculture (SNAP/food stamps), the Dept. of Labor, the Dept of Education, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services, Dept of Labor, Dept of Energy and how they would join with the DoT to create the aggregate raging river of regulation.

Think about the federal government using mandates for enforced national COVID-19 compliance rules. Think about USDA (Dept of Agriculture) and OSHA federal inspections for social distancing (etc) in all businesses, not just restaurants.

Think about the COVID-19 regulatory and compliance system and what political beneficiaries stand to gain.

Think about the Dept of Education using COVID to restructure the way education is taught and the downstream regulations on charter schools and non-compliant educational systems that do not meet the ideological objectives of the master control plan.

Think about how the Dept. of Labor (complaint division) can be weaponized against political opposition based on arbitrary inspections under the guise of employee health and safety…. using federal COVID compliance rules.

Think about required days off for the entire employee base if a single infection is identified in the workplace. Paid days off…. funded by Federal Government. Think about how that changes the income dependency dynamic.

Think about the larger Green New Deal (goals and objectives), and then contrast those objectives while aligning an overlay map of how federal COVID mitigation rules can be applied as a back door to the EXACT SAME objective.

Far beyond masks…. Workspaces being forced to be redesigned. New rules on labor density. New rules on labor/manufacturing and office proximity. New rules on uniforms. New rules on hand-washing stations. New rules on sick pay, shift hours, time-off when a COVID infection is detected in the workplace.

Think about everything from rules on surfaces, to rules on packaging, to rules on ALL business operations as an outcome of federal regulatory policy under the guise of CVOID-19 mitigation. OSHA, Labor, Agriculture, Transportation, Energy, Education, Housing, Health and Human Services, and even federal building permits… the entire regulatory system and compliance network.

Think about Housing and Urban Development (HUD) having new rules about dwellings and complexes for housing grants. Population density; the need to move into the suburbs and the confiscation of private property to “ensure the common safety” of the citizens.

If you think this is fear-mongering, I want to to evaluate that cynicism while contemplating this recent example from California:

Think about those types of business regulations applied on a National level…. and then, as seen in prior Democrat administrations with IRS etc, think about them also being enforced through the prism of political affiliation.

Think about how states that refuse to participate will be cut off from federal grants and funding for college tuition, Medicare and/or medicaid reimbursement, etc. etc.

Think about what happens to Main Street USA?

Think about companies on the NASDAQ or national companies on the stock-market?

Think about how those USA-specific federal COVID compliance regulations apply when considering U.S. business operations -vs- just taking operations overseas without those worries.

Think about who in Washington DC then takes control of what types of business interests are allowed to operation…. who determines the winning and losing.

Think about how Federal COVID-19 regulations can be used to put the multinational corporate world back (the globalists) on their former financial pathways, even without TPP and TTIP trade deals.

[Every domestic regulation weaponized against Main Street USA is a win for the Wall Street multinationals.]

Think about how much China and Europe would love to see our economy knee-capped in a Biden regulatory stranglehold; essentially achieving the same objectives as the Paris Climate Treaty.

Think long and hard about how far the tentacles of achieving the Green New Deal can extend under the auspices of federal COVID-19 mitigation.

Remember, those who are working on this don’t care about the middle-class and they have not for decades. The visibility of the ‘rust belt’ is the reference. This is about government bureaucrats using their DC power-base to control trillions in economic value and sell their ability to influence the winners and losers to the highest foreign bidder.

Look at what blue states have already done to seize power and control. Now think about that same manipulative intent spread throughout the entire country by weaponizing federal agencies with advanced regulation.

That should start to frame the reference point going forward. Remember, within totalitarian states religion is a risk… the assembly for religious worship is always considered a risk to by those who demand control over free-thought and lives.

The national legislative priority will be entirely focused on retention of that power system by generating an entirely new form of congressional representation. New states, new senators, new election systems, and funding for the needs of the executive…. that will be the focus of the facilitating legislative branch.

Those behind the executive branch; those controlling Joe Biden; will harness and weaponize the power. The legislative leftists will attempt to ensure the new systems they create under the guise of COVID-19 are never in a position to be withdrawn.

Why? – Why all of this effort?… why such extremes?… Follow the money, it’s always about the money.  The globalist ideology is worthless without money.   Wall Street’s Rick Santelli knows, he’s watching the second deployment of an identical playbook.

So when your friends ask why, talk about ‘why‘.  The weaponization of COVID is the ongoing crisis that will facilitate government solutions. As the American people resist the bait represented by the COVID crisis, those who need to weaponize it will keep turning up the pressure until they have full totalitarian control…

JoeBama Wants Return to Dependency on Mid-East Oil, Plans on Sending More Troops to Trade Blood for Oil

Posted originally on the conservative tree house on January 21, 2021 by Sundance

Despite the majority of American’s being happy about the U.S. energy independence created by President Trump, it is adverse to the interests of Wall Street and Big Government to lose justification for U.S. troops in the middle-east.

Remember, the vast majority of money into the bank accounts of politicians, their families and bureaucrats within the Deep State, comes from foreign governments.

From their DC perspective: all systems/processes that increase U.S. global influence are good; any policies/processes that reduce U.S. global influence are bad.

Rasmussen – “On his first day in the White House, President Joe Biden signed an executive order blocking further construction on the Keystone XL Pipeline project. Most voters disagree with Biden’s decision.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 36% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is a good idea to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline that would transport oil from Canada to the U.S. Fifty-one percent (51%) of voters say canceling the pipeline is a bad idea, and 13% are not sure.

The Egomaniacs & the Thinking Process

Armstrong Economics Blog/BigTech Re-Posted Jan 21, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: You have had billions. Why did that not make you as insane as Gates, Soros, Zuckerberg, and Dorsey?


ANSWER: BigTech sees the power to overthrow the banks. They have promised worldwide that they want everyone in the banking system to end paper money, which is over 1 billion people (just read the IMF). Gates was raised and indoctrinated by his father that the world is doomed unless you somehow create mass genocide legally. Soros likes the control of Communism and thinks he can achieve world peace by creating one government, as was the case behind the Iron Curtain. He even helped round up Jews to be executed and has no problem living with that.

I really do not know the answer. Perhaps it was simply that my objective was to try to figure out how the world functioned rather than to try to reshape it into my personal ideal vision. Other than Soros, all the others made money from equity. They are not traders, so they never were humbled by the market forces. When you are a trader, yes, I was dealing with billions. But you have to separate that from reality. There were plenty of times I would do a few billion in trades that day and then go out to dinner, and the bill would be maybe $200. You separate the trading from the daily expenditure by not looking at it as money. I would just look at it as phone numbers.

I did an interview in Munich, Germany. I was asked how I could advise on trillions of dollars. I explained I never thought about how much I was dealing with. I just looked at what had to be done and did it. She explained I was the largest adviser in the world and that she could not find someone else who could do such a job at that size. They would think about the money and became too afraid to act. She told me she interviewed a top brain surgeon who had to retire. She said she discovered the same attitude. Once he realized that the slightest mistake would cause the patient not to talk or walk again, he could not do the job.

Trying to be objective, I mentally separated myself from the decision. When I look at Soros, I went up against him many times and saw that he was simply on board with everyone else. There was group trading, and they would assume that their size could force a result. I traded against the club all the time. That is why they hated me and accused me of manipulating the world, theorizing that I had greater influence than all their money combined. I understood how markets functioned, whereas they tried to make markets function as they desired.

From my perspective, Dorsey, Zuckerberg, and Gates simply made money from an invention. They lack total comprehension of society or the economy. With no connection to the real world, they simply have become egomaniacs whereby they are drunk with what they perceive is unlimited power. This is precisely the actions of Dorsey caught by Project Veritas on video.

Dorsey may be pretending he is trying to stop violence, but he is really doing this to be able to expand into banking. In censoring everyone like Hitler and Stalin, he is encouraging violence because that becomes the ONLY solution when (1) courts refuse to act, and (2) you suppress people controlling the press and even their ability to communicate. This is what I mean that they have ZERO understanding of history or what makes the world really function. They are inviting their own demise; you can bet they will all become targets by people who have lost everything and will lash out, as is always the case. There are over 300 million people out there.

Conspiracies & Emotional Depression

Armstrong Economics Blog/Q&A Re-Posted Jan 21, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT #1: I understand and appreciate your skepticism about conspiracies. However, before the covid attack and the sell off in the stock market last March, you did not believe in conspiracy theories at all. You thought the world was run by stupid people and they were incapable of doing anything like what we are witnessing. You commented many times your surprise at how well funded and organized this has been. I wished back then you were right. Now I hope your wrong again (about conspiracy). So maybe a little humble pie is in order the next time you say you don’t believe in conspiracies.


REPLY: No. There have always been conspiracies to try to do things. What I have said and it still holds today: no CONSPIRACY has ever SUCCEEDED. This is a clip from “The Forecaster.”  I always traded against these people. I was asked to join many times. I have always refused. I was invited by Edmond Safra to the IMF dinner he put on in Washington renting the entire National Gallery. I was told by them, “Join us.” They had the IMF in their pocket. I said no, I advised the people to whom the IMF went to ask for money.

This has been a conspiracy that has been better funded than I expected. That is true. Mainly because it is a merger of Gates, Soros, and Schwab. Each had a different objective, but they agreed to combine. Like the Democrats. It is really a conglomeration of many groups from women to transsexuals and socialists all with only a common objective of hating Republicans. Individually, they have different goals.

They cannot create a conspiracy to manipulate a market. If they even could, then they would not blow up and constantly ask governments to bail them out. That alone proves my point — conspiracies do not succeed.

As for this elaborate conspiracy to change the world economy, they will destroy much of our world economy, inspire war, but their grand dream of forcing and controlling this Fourth Industrial Revolution will be transformed into dust. We will begin to witness its faults by 2022.

COMMENT#2:  Where can we run to? Seriously. I think this is really the most important question now.
I can’t help but wonder what would happen if 80million Trump voters moved to Texas.

COMMENT #3: Hi Martin,
It is truly insightful, having watched the inauguration of Biden on the UK BBC1.
It is all hope and glory, patriotism, great times ahead etc…..presented by them.
Am seriously thinking of ‘Fucking off’ to another country as am getting older (46yrs).
Truthfully, am thinking Indonesia, despite their earthquake/volcano/ history.
Its time, for me and my closest, to move on.  Am tired, as you are, of this bullshit.
Just wanna normal life!!!!!
Thanks for all you do… appear to be a normal guy, trustworthy et al, whilst mixing with the ‘average’ persons of this world.
You don’t need an ego trip, so am just telling you that I trust you and that you are a good guy (despite what I’ve read!!!)
As we say in the UK….
Cheers Mate, all the best

COMMENT #4: Thank you so much. We have some great pretenders here in the UK claiming they get calls from intelligence all night and they proclaimed Trump would arrest everyone. I cannot believe how many people believed this stuff. You are the only respectable voice in the extreme left and right confrontation.

REPLY: I understand this looks really depressing, like a violent storm about to strike. Capital will make its decision pro or con by February. There may yet be a rise in separatist movements. There is a lot up in the air. I am getting emails from around the world. I had to do a video interview this morning from Germany.

Australia Imposes $50,000 Fine for Not Wearing Mask; Florida Beats New York

Armstrong Economics Blog/Disease Re-Posted Jan 21, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Brisbane has imposed a $50,000 fine for not wearing a mask. In Florida, we did not go insane. Most small businesses survived and we did not have draconian lockdowns. Florida has about 2 million more people than New York, and while New York ­reported 17,839 new cases, Florida had 15,445. The open policy in Florida has fewer COVID cases than New York, proving that the lockdowns have failed to work. Instead, lockdowns are destroying jobs and ensuring that there will be nothing to return to since the WHO is already telling people that 2021 will be WORSE than 2020! Even the number of people who have caught COVID in a restaurant is just 1.4% of the COVID cases. That does not justify destroying restaurants and society.

Creating a Health Emergency – Amid Global Pandemic JoeBama Administration Opens Borders, Suspends Deportations

The Enslavement of Fear

Armstrong Economics Blog/Revolution Re-Posted Jan 20, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: I just can’t understand why the military armed forces and secret intelligence services all agree with the Marxist left.  Why?


ANSWER: Make no mistake about it. The left seeks to enslave everyone out of fear. The mass of the military, military establishment, and the intelligence services want war. They do not want peace. After the collapse of Communism, they did not like that. Their budgets were reduced and it inspired a feeling of not being needed. Then they needed to create a new enemy and that became terrorism. They had no nuclear arms and their ranks were the size of perhaps an enrollment in a university. But they needed to be pumped up into a global threat. They fully knew of the plan for 9/11. The first crew even drew the Twin Towers on the walls of their cell with planes going into them, advertising they would be victorious.

Among the rank and file, I get a lot of emails. According to soldiers sending in emails, they put it as pro-Trump being 70% and concede that the military will probably spit in a civil war. But the “military” does not include the National Guard. They are who Pelosi disrespected by calling them “weekend warriors” on a phone call to the Pentagon asking for Marines. Her attitude is similar to any dictator who seeks to retain power. They always expect the military to kill their own people. Just look at Venezuela.

However, you must also look deeper. I have written before about the Nika Revolt which is an incredibly important event that leaders are well aware of.  The troops inside Constantinople would not kill their own people and the emperor was about to flee the city. His wife told him to order in a legion that was not Greek and were encamped outside the city. He did. They came in and massacred 40,000 people.

Perhaps you are too young to remember the “Kent State Massacre” where the Ohio National Guard killed four unarmed and wounded nine other students on May 4, 1970.  Then 10 days later, on May 14, two students were killed (and 12 wounded) by police at Jackson State University in Mississippi. This was all about the protests over the Vietnam War. President Nixon established the President’s Commission on Campus Unrest. It concluded that the killings were unjustified. It was found that even if the guardsmen faced danger, it was not a danger that called for lethal force. The report declared that 61 shots fired by 28 guardsmen certainly cannot be justified. Apparently, no order to fire was given. They just panicked. It was held back then that the Kent State tragedy must mark the last time that, as a matter of course, loaded rifles are issued to guardsmen confronting student demonstrators. That probably will not be the case this week.

The Gallup Poll at the time was interesting for the view was 58% of the people blamed the students. Just like the Capitol Siege, they looked at all the photographs, and 24 students were indicted with the May 4 demonstration or with the one at the ROTC building fire three days before. Five cases, all related to the burning of the ROTC building, went to trial. One non-student defendant was convicted, two other non-students pleaded guilty, and one was acquitted. All other charges were dismissed. As for the National Guard, five guardsmen were indicted and claimed to have fired in self-defense which was accepted.

It was during the Russian Revolution where the government expected the military to fire on the people. Yeltsin stood on the tank and begged them not to kill their own people. The troops stood down and the government fell. We too will reach such a point. However, if you look at the actions of Pelosi and the rhetoric coming out of CNN that anyone who voted for Trump is a Nazi or a member of KKK, there is no intention of the Biden Administration to be inclusive. This is a leftist purge, and make no mistake about it, they will NEVER tolerate opposition. It is the very nature of all Marxists — they need total control to force their ideals upon the world.

Have Our Politicians Set in Motion The Decline in the USA?

Armstrong Economics Blog/Police State Re-Posted Jan 19, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

Violent crimes are up 120% in the first 10 days in NYC for 2021 compared to 2020. While a portion of this has been inspired by the Democrats initially supporting the Defund Police before the election, most of the crime has risen simply because of the destruction in jobs thanks to lockdowns. The NYPD even announced that the “first eleven months of 2020 surged to levels unseen in years.” Gun arrests last November were up 112%. In fact, more than 70% of serious crimes in NYC go unsolved providing a greater incentive to engage in what’s your’s is mine mentality.

What our illustrious politicians fail to understand is that the middle-class and higher have a greater probability to be able to work remotely compared to the lower classes which rely on the physical presence as their means of income. The lockdowns have had a disproportionate impact upon the poor making them even poorer. Hence, the rise in violent crimes historically ALWAYS correlated to the economic decline as does eventually the rise in civil unrest and eventually war. People get bored. They will not be able to just sit home and watch TV because you hand them $600 checks now and then.

To defeat Trump, they allowed the Black Live Matter Movement to turn violent with fringe elements and ANTIFA to expand with impunity. They thought they would dethrone Trump and then go back to normal. They have unleashed nothing by violence and civil unrest which will continue to escalate into 2022.
