The world is a mess and things aren’t getting better. There’s no end in site to the Ukraine war and the situation in Europe keeps getting worse and worse. We sit down with Martin Armstrong to get the latest update. He sees gold going much higher in Q1 2023. The loss of faith in all governments keeps increasing. China is a lost cause as well. But the US is a beneficiary of everyone else’s misery. That’s just the way the world works.
Martin sees a major backlash coming in the aftermath of the 2022 mid-term elections. His model is questioning whether or not the 2024 presidential election will even take place. What could possibly happen to stop it and does it matter anyway? This is a must listen to interview.
I know for a fact that the US military is deploying some reservists to Romania to train European soldiers. The reservists have been told that the war will escalate, and as a soldier told me, “things are getting really bad over there.” They will be training the Europeans to fight against Russians for at least six months. NATO is constructing a battlefield in Romania for this extensive training. The Cincu military training facility already exists but is undergoing a massive expansion.
This is precisely what Russia feared long before entering Ukraine. I reported that Russia knows it is fighting the West and not simply Ukraine. NATO has increased its presence around Eastern Europe this year and has no plans to de-escalate the situation. There are over 40,000 troops on the ground across Eastern Europe, and more are set to arrive. In fact, NATO will establish four additional “multinational battle groups” in Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, and Bulgaria.
Colonel Vincent Minguet, the commander of the NATO Combat Group in Romania, said the plan is for “the creation of a permanent, stronger battalion, with more heavy weapons, to prevent any aggression or any destabilization in Romania.” Alarmingly, Minguet believes that training will last for four or five years. They are planning for a long-term ongoing battle fought among numerous nations, aka a world war.
The world is entering a crisis in confidence. First we had the COVID manufactured crisis, that spawned the Energy Crisis, and now we are entering the Currency Crisis phase. As I have said, we have the worst possible of incompetent world leaders I have ever witnesses in my life. With all the talking heads on TV, we must understand that the best risk management is still based upon personal views and expectations. That is highly dangerous for the period into 2032, nobody is qualified to forecast the future from a personal perspective. You can only forecast what you even think is possible.
The UK Gilts have collapsed by 1% sparking the BOE to intervene. The fools on the hill may cheer, but they have never looked behind that curtain even once. Those in the central banks are trapped with old theories spouted out by the goldbugs to no avail – debt rising, printing of money = buy gold. People like Larry Summers wants higher taxes, higher interest rates, and less government spending and all those things that he and others point to as the problem in the UK that would lead to the further destruction of the world economy. Everything is says about the UK is applicable just about everywhere else. Why is the dollar rising with the same conditions? What is the difference? Could it just be the fact that they are all pushing hatred at Russians in general and itching for war using the Ukrainian people for political purposes? That equals strong dollar, capital flight to America, and the end of Europe.
The operator of NordStream 2 reported a sudden drop in pressure on Monday suggesting a possible leak reporting a drop in pressure for Nordstream 1 a few hours later. Danish armed forced reported bubbles creating a disturbance roughly 1 km in diameter in the Baltic Sea. While everyone acknowledges the probability of sabotage and many are pointing the finger at Russia promising to respond, following Swedish seismic monitoring suggests they there were explosions implying an intentional attack. The risk of climate zealots behind this event cannot be ruled out. Nobody in the mainstream press will even dare to question the validity of climate change claims so there is no hope of even causing anyone in government to rethink this scenario.
Nordstream 2 certification was canceled by Germany on February 22, 2022 to the cheers of the climate zealots and subsequently filed for bankruptcy whereas Nordstream 1 has been out of commission since the end of August due to oil leaks of the gas compression unit in Russia found during routine maintenance whose repair has been complicated by the economic sanctions. Moscow is demanding documentation to confirm the turbine is not subject to Western sanctions whereas Siemen’s CEO suggests the company is ready to return the turbine to Russia.
Cheer up – We have entered the era of Volatility. That is the byproduct of a collapse in confidence.

Commentary from Greg Hunter:
Legendary financial and geopolitical cycle analyst Martin Armstrong says nothing is going to get better by the end of 2022, and he is still forecasting “chaos” coming in 2023. Armstrong says the plunge in the stock market last week is all because of “extreme uncertainty.” Armstrong predicted a stock market crash two months ago and contends, “It’s not over.”
Europe is in big financial trouble with Russian natural gas turned off as a retaliation from the sanctions. Armstrong explains, “In Europe, I believe they are actually deliberately doing this, and this is Klaus Schwab’s ‘Great Reset.’ They know they have a serious problem. They lowered rates to below 0% in 2014. They just started raising interest rates. Meanwhile, you ordered all the pension funds throughout Europe to have more than 70% in government bonds. Then they took it negative. All the pension funds are insolvent. Europe is fiscal mismanagement on a grand scale. There is no way it can sustain itself, and we are looking at Europe breaking apart.”
So, could Europe suck the rest of the world down the tubes? Armstrong says, “Oh, absolutely. Europe is the problem. . . . The crisis in banking will start in Europe. . . . The debt is collapsing. They have no way to sustain themselves. The debt market over there is undermining the stability of all the banks. You have to understand that reserves are tied to government debt, and this is the perfect storm. Yes, the (U.S.) stock market will go down short term. We are not facing a 1929 event or a 90% fall here. . . . Europeans, probably by January of 2023, as this crisis in Ukraine escalates, anybody with half a brain is going to take whatever money they have and get it over here.”
So, where is smart money going to go? Armstrong says, “Stocks are like gold, it is on the same side of the table and is opposite government debt. People are not going to be buying government debt. They are going to be looking at anything in the private sector. . . . People are buying whatever they can to get off the grid.”
Armstrong says governments are borrowing and spend huge amounts of money. The Fed will keep raising interest rates to fight inflation, but Armstrong says, “Raising interest rates will only make things worse. We have supply shortages, and raising rates will not fill the gaps.”
Armstrong has never been more positive on buying gold. Why? Armstrong explains, “We are looking at a sovereign debt default. This is what’s going on. This is why Biden will spend whatever he wants because he knows he doesn’t have to pay it back. Eventually, this is what’s going to happen. This is Schwab’s agenda.”
Armstrong has predicted “2023 will be the year from Hell.” Armstrong says, “Civil unrest will only get worse” this year, and he is predicting we will have full blown war next year. Armstrong contends Democrats are desperate and will do things like granting illegal aliens citizenship so they can vote in the mid-term elections.
In closing, Armstrong says, “Something is going to spark a collapse in government again. It’s going to be something, I think, in Europe where they do something drastic because they have no other choice. . . . They need war as the excuse for the defaults of all the government debt.”

Tucker Carlson accurately outlined the most likely suspect of the sabotage against Russia’s Nord Stream I and II pipeline today. When you consider the media blitz by Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, last weekend (ABC, CNN, NBC and CBS); specifically pointing out the U.S. position against Russia; it is almost a certainty that U.S. action was behind the underwater detonation of explosives to take out Nord Stream pipeline system. WATCH:
I find it unbelievable that the corrupt media is calling her a fascist. They do not even understand what the word means: i.e. “centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.” They were calling Trump a fascist which would mean he was surrendering his own company to authoritarian government control. Not even Trump would be that stupid.
Anyone who is not WOKE, living in fear of climate change, and agrees with a one-world government with the UN as the leader, is now a fascist. I think they are looking in the mirror and describing themselves.
The Italian people have voted for a conservative prime minister, and the globalists are panicking. Giorgia Meloni has long been skeptical about Italy’s place in the EU, COVID laws, illegal immigration, and woke culture. Despite sixty-three percent voting in her favor, the liberal media is up in arms. CNN dubbed her “the most far-right government since the fascist era of Benito Mussolini.”
One would think that the left would celebrate Italy’s first female PM. “I am Giorgia. I’m a woman, I’m a mother, I’m Italian, I’m Christian,” she stated in 2019 during a campaign that came under harsh criticism. Only in today’s modern age could someone be condemned for stating such basic facts. Meloni is fighting to uphold traditional Italian values rather than submitting to the globalist agenda of abandoning ethics for the new world order.
“Our main enemy today is the globalist drift of those who view identity and all its forms to be an evil to overcome. And constantly ask to shift real power away from the people to supernational entities headed by supposedly enlightened elites,” the newly-appointed PM stated. Countless Italians are tired of being under the control of the EU and submitting to a lifestyle that goes against their culture.
A video surfaced days before Meloni’s victory of a mob removing the EU flag in Rome and replacing it with the Italian flag. There is something to be said about wanting to preserve your culture. Nigel Farage touched on the topic during our 2019 World Economic Conference in Rome, where he pointed out that Italy’s Catholic roots were being targeted as the globalists feel they have the authority to tell the people how to live. Italy’s conversion from the lira to the euro pushed the nation into deeper debt as Brussels took advantage of the southern nations. Its location has attracted masses of illegal immigrants who no one will house and has caused a clash of cultures.
This is part of a bigger trend of people straying from what the mainstream media wants them to believe. There is a reason why the only people who have congratulated her in the political world are considered far-right extremists. People want to preserve their culture and can only do so by casting out those submitting to the globalist agenda.

New Zealand, Australia and Canada retained the most restrictive policies on vaccination the longest. However, today Canada announced they are finally loosening the totalitarian fiats and permitting travelers to enter the country without proof of vaccination.
New measures begin October 1st.
(The Hill) — Canada is lifting its testing, quarantine and vaccination requirements at the border, a step in rolling back pandemic restrictions designed to stave off the spread of COVID-19, the government announced Monday.
Starting Oct. 1, international travelers will be able to enter Canada without providing proof of vaccination, taking a pre-arrival test or undergoing quarantine, according to a government release. Compulsory masking on domestic planes and trains will also end, as will a longstanding requirement to share health information with the Canadian government via its ArriveCAN application prior to entry.
The move comes as many countries attempt to ease out of the strict restrictions put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic even as the virus continues to circulate. (read more)
There is a serious question as to why the Western press has been putting out nothing but one-sided propaganda. I have been warned that my sources in Russia are concerned that the hardliners behind the scene have been critical of Putin for NOT being more aggressive. Of course, there is the youth protesting over the war and the Western press has been happy to project only that image.
Today, for the very first time, the New York Times has actually reported what I have been reporting for weeks:
I am concerned that if Putin is overthrown, the propaganda of the Western press makes it sound like everything will be back to normal. That is so far from the truth, it is not even funny. The Pi Target from the fall of the Soviet Union will be April 6th, 2023. Zelensky stood up on February 23rd, 2022 and said he wanted to restore nukes in Ukraine in direct violation of all the agreements since 1991. The next day Putin invaded.
John McCain was there at Maidan promising US supportto overthrow Yanukovich and to create a revolution against Russia. It was John McCain who was pushing to fund the proxy way against Putin in 2014. In December 2016 after Trump was elected, he traveled to Ukraine promising military support to wage war on Russia backing the neo-nazis. Trump rejected that and that is why McCain hated Trump. McCain has been pushing war with Russia all along. It was the US-installed “interim” government in 2014 that began the civil war attacking the Donbas and the Minsk Agreement was brokered by Germany and France to allow the Donbas to vote on their separation from Ukraine. Zelensky has refused to recognize that agreement.
Zelensky promised peace and the end of corruption. He has done the exact opposite. He rejected Henry Kissinger’s advice to let the Donbas vote. Zelensky would rather destroy his entire country than yield “one inch” to Russia.
I am deeply concerned that if Putin falls for any reason, we are looking at significant risk and our computer’s forecast back in 2013 that Ukraine will be the hot sport, is exactly on track. Russia has its hawks just as we have had to endure John McCain who has supported endless wars for his personal vendetta. Despite his death, other has taken up the agenda and are working hard for war with Russia and the Hawks are doing in Russia and China right now. The smartest play they can make is to attack Taiwan and go fully into Ukraine simultaneously. The West is economically too weak to support a war on two fronts simultaneously. I cannot believe our world leaders are this stupid.
Allow the Donbas to vote and monitor it by independent observers from both sides. The people are predominantly Russia and they are Russian Orthodox, which Zelensky has also outlawed their religion. It will be hands down that they vote for their independence. The alternative is not something we really want to head into cheering for our own destruction on both sides.

GREAT NEWS – Looks like the Italians have decided to Make Italy Great Again and voted overwhelmingly to support Giorgia Meloni and the nationalist coalition. With an anticipated 45% of the exit polls, this outcome will almost certainly make Giorgia Meloni the first female prime minister in Italy.
Giorgia Meloni’s electoral alliance is holding a wide lead in Italy’s national vote. Exit polls on state television are putting the ‘Brothers of Italy’ result around 45%, with an alliance of League leader Matteo Salvini and conservative former Premier Silvio Berlusconi resulting in a solid majority in Parliament.
Rai state broadcaster said the closest contender, the center-left alliance of former Democratic Party Premier Enrico Letta, has apparently garnered only 29.5% of the vote.
ROME, Sept 26 (Reuters) – Giorgia Meloni, head of the nationalist Brothers of Italy party, said on Monday Italian voters had given a clear mandate to the right to form the next government and called for unity to help confront the country’s many problems.
“If we are called upon to govern this nation, we will do so for all Italians, with the aim of uniting the people, of exalting what unites them rather than what divides them,” Meloni told reporters. “We will not betray your trust.” (link)

The European Union bureaucrats have lots of sad tonight.
