President Trump Takes a Hit for the Team

Re-Posted from patriotsnewsnetwork  JAN 15, 2021

“The Republican nominee for president will be that candidate who best learns that there is no future in apologizing,” I wrote in a June 10, 2015, column. Six days later Donald Trump descended the escalator at Trump Tower and, in so doing, launched the most volatile period in American history since the Civil War.

I wish I could say I had Trump in mind when I wrote the above, but as right as my prediction proved to be, I did not even know Trump was running. His refusal to back down or apologize came at a huge personal cost, but the rest of us, including his enemies, benefited from his un-Republican-like willingness to punch back when punched.

The benefits came in two primary forms: what Trump accomplished as president and what he exposed. The last few months, and the last week especially, were all about exposure. We will get to this in a minute, but first a quick brief on Trump’s accomplishment.

No matter how visceral their loathing of Trump, even our leftist friends benefitted from four years of peace and prosperity. So vibrant was the economy in early 2020 that it pushed us through the globalist fear pandemic in relatively good order. Enjoy the fruits of that economy while you can. They won’t last.

As to peace, Trump launched no new wars, nor did he expand any old ones. No president since Jimmy Carter can make this claim, and Carter accomplished his peace through submission. Trump accomplished his through strength: a military rebuilt, North Korea subdued, Russia restrained, China looking over its shoulder, Israel making new friends throughout the region.

Of universal benefit, too, were the trade deals that Trump pulled off. In 2016, these deals were on the agenda of no other candidate from either party. In 2019, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which replaced the disastrous NAFTA, passed a Democrat-controlled House 385-41. In his eight years, Barack Obama had no bipartisan accomplishment of this magnitude, nothing close.

From the conservative perspective, Trump’s most enduring accomplishment were the judicial appointments, a high percentage of whom are constitutionalists, nearly 500 at all levels, including three in the Supreme Court.

Although another Republican president might have secured, as Trump did, deregulation, tax cuts, and energy independence, none other would have dared to build a wall, help move the capital of Israel to Jerusalem, speak at the March for Life, or rescue us from the delusional Paris Accord.

Then too, despite four years of media race baiting, Trump secured the highest Republican percentage of minority votes in sixty years, not to mention 12 million more total votes than any Republican had ever received.

Reportedly, Louisiana Governor Huey Long was once asked, “Do you think we will ever have Fascism in America?” Said Long, “Sure, only we’ll call it anti-Fascism.” What Trump exposed, and which may prove of more lasting value than what he accomplished, was the real-life unfolding of Long’s paradox.

Even before Trump was elected, he had panicked the bipartisan deep state into overreaction. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan refused to appear with Trump on stage in Wisconsin. Hillary Clinton and the DNC meanwhile launched the Russia collusion hoax as a dirty trick operation, and the Obama administration finessed it, with the help of the FBI and CIA, into the foundation for a coup. The media meanwhile cheered the coconspirators on.

On August 15, 2016, the FBI’s Peter Strzok memorably signaled the shared motive of all the conspirators. “There’s no way [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” he texted FBI lover Lisa Page. “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

As the coup progressed, renegade Rolling Stone reporter Matt Taibbi said out loud what should have been obvious to everyone on his side of the barricades, “Being on any team is a bad look for the press, but the press being on team FBI/CIA is an atrocity, Trump or no Trump.”

The major media were well beyond caring about appearances. Laughably, in 2018, the Washington Post shared a “national reporting” Pulitzer with the New York Times “for deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage in the public interest that dramatically furthered the nation’s understanding of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.” Not since the Times’ Walter Duranty won a Pulitzer for concealing the Soviet terror-famine has the prize been awarded so promiscuously.

In gauging scores in sports like diving and figure skating, judges factor in a “degree of difficulty.” No president since Lincoln has labored under a higher degree of difficulty than Trump. I cannot recall seeing a positive headline in any major media during the duration of his presidency. The fact that America’s most beautiful and stylish first lady never made it onto the cover of a magazine suggests just how monolithic was the opposition. And still Trump never apologized, never backed down.

In the 2020 election, Trump showed us just how inherent was the Left’s fondness for fascism. Big Tech crossed something of a Rubicon two weeks before the election when its agents colluded in censoring the Hunter Biden story. Big Media helped their allies across.

With the story blocked, Biden had a chance of winning. Using COVID as a cover, Democratic operatives in key states just had to steal thousands more votes than usual. Big Media and Big Tech colluded by mocking those who dared question the rigging of the election, and the FBI sat on its hands. Although Trump had carried congressional Republicans to unexpected wins, most collaborated with the conspirators by either keeping silent or scolding Trump for daring to question the outcome.  

The “fascist” movement began with Italy’s Benito Mussolini. He took the name of his party from the Latin word fasces meaning a bundle of rods gathered together in one strong hand. Starting in ten days all the rods will be gathered — the presidency, the House, the Senate, Big Tech, Big Media, Hollywood, the CIA, the FBI, perhaps even the military. Just in the last few weeks, their collective eagerness to suppress dissent has shown up their mentors in the CCP.

To enforce the new order at the street level, the Left has developed its own private army. In a marvelous bit of self-parody, the bully boys of the new fascism, the Left’s own SA, call themselves anti-fascists or Antifa for short. Huey Long had the last laugh on that one.

With his back to the wall, Trump rallied the last bulwark against this encroaching tyranny, the American people. In so doing, he showed the comically obvious hypocrisy of the Left’s support for “largely peaceful” protests.

Although events this past week did not appear to work out as we might have liked, appearances can be deceiving. There were lessons learned, eyes opened. It seems somehow providential that the people’s protest at the “People’s House” occurred on the Epiphany.

Left’s Great Stalinist Purge of All Our Freedoms

Armstrong Economics Blog/BigTech Re-osted Jan 17, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

It began with Twitter shutting down Trump. Then Google & Apple shut off Parler and its owner and his family have had to go into hiding because of death threats from the left. Now Google and Apple are continuing their Great Stalinistic Purge of the Internet. They are shutting down any free speech they can under the pretense that anyone who voted for Trump is essentially now a terrorist. Minds was also an alternative Social Network and if anything allows free speech, they are now actively hunting them down. This is most definitely a global coup and we have to come to face the fact that not only was the election rigged, but it has also been an intended move toward authoritarianism because socialism can no longer be sustained. The vast majority will simply comply and that is the danger. How far do we go down this road of tyranny before there is push-back?

We offer NO Apps in either Apple or Google for this very reason.

Meanwhile, Pelosi has announced that any lawmaker who helped insurrectionists could face criminal prosecution. She is blowing up our very forum of government and there need not be some siege from Trump supporters. The word circulating around DC is that once Biden takes office, they will look to begin to criminally charge Republicans to remove as many from office as possible. This is also intimidation and we have corporations like Coke saying they will cut off all funds to anyone who changed the Electoral College. Rand Paul has warned that one-third of the Republican Party will leave if the Republicans support impeaching Trump.

CNN allowed Don Lemon to claim that 74 MILLION Republicans from all across the Nation who had voted for Trump, compared to the KKK, and Nazis. The sheer hatred toward Republicans is just off the charts. There is NO POSSIBLE way that Biden will have an Administration that represents everyone. This is the Great Purge and all dissent will be silenced. This is the normal course for every leftist Marxist revolution. They simply will NEVER tolerate dissent and they do not believe in the Constitution or anything represented in the First Amendment. This is why they will push the country into a bloody civil war.

The Pentagon has authorized up to 25,000 National Guard members to help secure Washington, DC, for President-elect Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day. The scuttlebutt is that Pelosi requested Marines calling National Guard Troops “weekend warriors” but they declined to send in the Army. It appears that Pelosi has circumvented the President and is really now running the country.

The siege of the Capitol was by no means a violent insurrection. Yet all the other protests around the country were perfectly fine and the police were told to stand down. One friend who lived in California a few blocks from the main street which was being looted, saw the police standing down doing nothing. He has sold his house and moved to Naples, Florida. This double standard is bothering a lot of people. Meanwhile, the prosecutors were told to take into account the economic status of loots on the West Coast. If they were poor, then they were justified?

The False Flag Coming this Week

Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Jan 16, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

A “false flag” is a term that goes back to the days of Pirates. They would fly a flag of a friendly country and then when they were close they would raise their Skull & Crossbones. Thus, the term originated during the 16th century and referred to the deliberate misrepresentation of a ship’s affiliation and this intent. The tactic was originally used by pirates and privateers with great success. It eventually became a standard practice in times of war. It was legal but required the raising of your true flag once an attack had

Today, perhaps the most notorious false flag was used by Hitler in the Bundestag fire. He immediately blamed the Communists and thus justified his oppression. This is precisely what the attack on the Capitol was all about. This video of John Sullivan speaking to a freelance CNN reporter expressly shows he know it was going to take place and assisted in breaking in. On the 20th, we are likely to see some events somewhere and they too are highly likely to be false flags to ensure that the Domestic Terrorist Act passes with very stiff penalties which will allow the imprisonment of just about anyone under a very intentional vague definition of a Domestic Terrorist. This will be used in the exact same manner as Hitler and Stalin.

We are in the midst of a leftist revolution. Most people will not believe that until it is too late. Note the choppiness going into the 20th. There are 4 Directional Changes in a row and then a high volatility target on the 20th. We do not see a nice steady market unfolding. International Capital will need to decide its vote and that appears to be shaping up in February.Categories:Politics

Joke Yapper Fake News- Best and Brightest

Re-Posted from JAN 15, 2021 AT 9:36 AM

CNN’s Jake Tapper really stuck his foot in his mouth when he insulted Florida’s Republican Representative, Brian Mast.

Tapper questioned his patriotism after Mast supported an effort to look into the election fraud. Jake said something about Mast fighting for Democracy in Afghanistan and then added “Although I don’t know about his commitment to it here in the United States.”

Tapper was wrong on so many levels with that statement. We’re not in Afghanistan to bring them Democracy. We are still there for geopolitical reasons, as well as to protect the opium fields for CIA drug runners. Secondly, America is aRepublic, not a Democracy, which has become the Democrats’ code word for ’socialism.’ Thirdly, to question a well-decorated military man’s patriotism after he lost his legs in service of his country is deeply insulting to us all.

It probably shouldn’t be surprising, though. Tapper loves to insult those who aren’t aligned with his own network echo chamber.

Along with the ADL, he helped make sure I was disinvited from the White House media summit back in 2018. He has repeatedly stated on Twitter that I’ve drawn ‘anti-Semitic’ cartoons. This is a blatant lie. I’ve never drawn an anti-Semitic cartoon—ever. It’s not anti-Semitic to criticize central bankers and globalist corporations having an influence on our politics. Tapper rakes in $4 million per year toadying to his corporate masters.

We all know whose interests he serves as he sports a very concerned expression while on air.

It’s a good thing for Tapper that he is able to get fantastically richer by means of telling lies. He would never be able to make a living through cartooning…because he’s terrible at it.

The Democrat Reign of Terror Begins

The Burning of the Reichstag (1933) or Rioting in our Capitol – Big Problem

RePosted from the Canada Free Pree By Ray DiLorenzo —— Bio and ArchivesJanuary 16, 2021

Mark Twain once said “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.”

The Democrats and the Far Left are using the Reichstag Fire of 1933 as their model to limit or curtail our liberties. They have no intention of creating unity with the Right, only demanding surrender, the end of a two-party system.

In 1933, the Reichstag, home of the German parliament in Berlin, was the subject of an arson attack. A German court found that a Dutch communist was responsible, although it still remains a mystery. Some theorize that Hitler’s Brown Shirts were responsible or at least had a hand in it. In any case, the Nazi Party used the incident as a pretext to claim that communists were plotting against the government and were planning a violent uprising. Hitler urged President von Hindenburg to pursue a ‘ruthless confrontation’ with the Communist Party of Germany. It spelled the end of the Weimar Republic’s democracy and the beginning of Hitler’s National Socialism.

Germany halted freedom of expression, along with freedom of the press, freedom of association and public assembly

Soon after the confrontation began, Germany halted freedom of expression, along with freedom of the press, freedom of association and public assembly. The Nazis used gun ownership records to confiscate guns, but many managed to stash away weapons well into the late 30s.

Some people will be indignant saying I’m comparing Nazis to the Democrat Party. Well, let’s take a look. Where was the outrage from the Left when at least 30 people were killed during the 275 leftist riots of 2020? When their thugs in Antifa and BLM took over parts of cities over the summer, Democrats did nothing. When portions of cities like Minneapolis, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, and other cities, were burned down this past summer, Democrats did nothing. When countless people lost their livelihoods and homes due to the fires and vandalism, Democrats did nothing. When President Trump asked local governments numerous times to control the violence, they did nothing. When President Trump tried desperately to get a COVID relief bill passed, Democrats did nothing. When Trump asked for a $2,000 per taxpayer relief, the Democrat congress would pass only $600 to each taxpayer, but gave billions to foreign nations and pet projects (donors).

Summer 2020 Riots in Democrat Cities – No Problem

Summer 2020 Riots in Democrat Cities - No Problem

Our modern tyrants are using the same playbook

They, in fact, did less than nothing. People like Kamala Harris defended the actions of Antifa and BLM, raised money to have these terrorists released from their jail cells. Democrats also released other violent criminals back onto the streets because of COVID, only to commit other violent crimes.

Our modern tyrants are using the same playbook. They find an incident they can use to their advantage, then magnify it, exploit it to the full, and don’t let it go to waste. They get companies like Walmart to withdraw financial support of the GOP. Publishers are canceling book deals of former Trump allies. They’re getting Big Tech to silence their platforms of all conservative debate, and close down competitors, but still allow mullahs to chant ‘death to America.’ The road to full censorship has now been paved.

They propose a no-fly list of enemies and all Trump conservatives they accuse of going against their grain. People are being fired from their jobs because of their political beliefs. Does any of this sound even vaguely historically familiar? If Biden is indeed inaugurated it will get much worse. They have just begun.

One riot vs. the Democrats’ 275 riots

All this rage from the media wasn’t because of the 25 or 30 innocent people killed over the summer in ‘mostly peaceful protests’. They couldn’t care less. It was because some foolish people got carried away, instigated by Antifa, entered the Capitol, the turf of the politicians, let in, mysteriously by the Capitol police, I might add.

One riot vs. the Democrats’ 275 riots. And don’t forget the constant incitement to violence by Democrat politicians and the media these last four years.

Passions are aroused, especially with all the proof of election fraud no one wants to look at. 71% of Trump voters believe a civil war is on the horizon. 40% of Biden supporters agree. What does Pelosi do?…impeaches President Trump without a hearing or allowing a defense…and without a chance of a conviction in the Senate. You can’t find this kind of stupidly just anywhere. You have to go to Washington, D.C.

When it is So Bad – You Just Have to Laugh!

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

Jade Sacker is a freelance journalist who appears to be in this video documenting the pro-Trump mob storming the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. CNN has denied that she is an “employee” yet they obviously have used her. What is most interesting about this video is of John Sullivan who has now been arrested, apparently and provided information to Sacker that a siege would take place and says he could not tell her too much in advance. CNN gives air time to domestic terrorists as long as they are against Trump.

The court case shows that he was far more involved than just simply being their by chance. He offered to break in and was instrumental in telling the police to stand down. And this is what they want to impeach Trump over? This siege was far more involved than meets the eye and it was an intended event that used Trump supporters to help create a False Flag. Like 911, there will be no jonest independent review. Congress has already charged Trump which means there is no way they will allow any independent investigation to show that they jumped to conclusions.

Entire Dutch Government Resigns Because of Corruption

Armstrong Economics Blog/Corruption re-Posted Jan 15, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

The Entire Dutch Government resigned today showing that career politicians are just corrupt and this is what we will see as revolutions start to unfold. The resignations came after a scandal involving the mismanagement of childcare funds where the politicians demanded thousands of families into financial hardship had to repay the money they were given. An investigation revealed last December that tax officials wrongly accused thousands of working families of fraud. They ordered them to repay childcare benefits between 2013 and 2019.

This is yet another example of how corrupt governments have become and why Republics always fail. It is time that we give DEMOCRACY a try where people MUST be qualified to run for office and the term limit is one time ONLY. No career politicians. The people must oversee the bureaucracy or our future will always be in jeopardy. All legislation MUST be voted on by the people.

Creating an online means to vote can easily be secure. You vote with your Social Security number which is then crossed reference to the income tax records and SS payments for disabilities. That way one vote per LIVING person – no dead people and no-nonsense of mail-in ballots. You cannot scan the same vote twice and no human counts the votes. If we can buy secured online from Amazon, surely we can also vote in a secured manner.
