@Ichoran

My apology for not also responding to the more jovial portions of your reply, because I concur. 🥰

You still need an epistemology that accounts for the success of modern science and technology

Why can’t or don’t you conceive of co-existing, partially co-incident epistemological theories. Our epistemological universe isn’t a static. How many times am I going to need to reiterate that I don’t have time to spoon feed every nook and cranny detail of (my perspective on) this debate right now.

You keep referring to people's IQs. How is this not argument from authority? If he has a good argument, why not refer to the argument? This is exactly the kind of sloppy thinking that I have been criticizing.

You argue some strawman or strawmen in nearly every reply to me when we’re debating. I’m merely mentioned in passing that his writings on Quora, and possibly even hitting him up with a private message, might be worthwhile w.r.t. the topic we’re discussing. An IQ of 220 should mean he is capable of visualizing model theories and assimilate symbolic logic that are typically outside the communication range of most humans. Yet you extrapolate that into some strawman (i.e. that I was citing IQ as authority or any authority as the basis for my arguments, but I wasn’t) to attempt to slander me. Ironically that’s your extremely sloppy thinking. Tsk. Tsk.

There’s another reason I mentioned IQ — to preempt those in the “Enlightened” class (including many Quorians) who presume anyone with viewpoints contrary to their own (e.g. conservative, conspiratorial, etc.) are not intellectuals.

Here’s a small sampling of my relevant Quora comments which also serve as counter-examples to your recent doubt (worded so smugly as to be construed as a claim and allegation) as to whether I could write innoculous, intelligent comments on any discussion forum:

You’re ostensibly highly intelligent. Certainly more articulate than I am (and probably higher IQ since high school) and especially compared to version of myself I am now in this health morass and attempting to overwork through it because of the urgency of the situation I perceive. I hope after reading this entire post you’ll gain some appreciation for my perspective on for example the apparently institutionalized corruption in the decadent Western civilization becoming more blatantly obvious with the onset of this virus situation.

And anyway, Hansen's top answers, at least, don't have anything to do with Popper.

You “think”. (← my high IQ deceased, suicided-at-the-hands-of-her-husband 😢 sister’s typical snark remark to dispense of those myopic yet full-of-themselves when she had already worked out the complete logic of the situation. I still remember my sister asked me when she was in 8th grade to explain some geometry problem and I explained in a way that she credited with making her instantly and completely grok geometry from that point forward — she both praised, admired me and admonished me at other times.)

I can't be certain that there isn't some example of confusion or self-contradiction in there.

Normally until you read something, you won’t know what it says.

This is a non-sequitur.

Incorrect.

Look at my phrasing. "Everyone needs to breathe air." What does "everyone" mean?

Irrelevant.

The only way this would be a problematic statement would be if some people actually stop needing to breathe within the typical duration for which one would expect a term like "everyone" to have a stable referent.

I presume you’re aware of the extensive philosophy about the theory of consciousness and the perception of our existence. A proper refutation would draw from that to poke gaping holes in your simpleton. If a tree falls in the forest, and nobody observed it, did it fall? This also relates to Schrödinger’s Cat.

The technology that is allowing people to even more easily substitute groupthink for careful thought and experimentation increases the overall propensity towards being wrong.

Or being “correct” as far as they are concerned, which (as an extreme oversimplification because I don’t want to develop a treatise here) is what presumably significantly matters to them anyway. By what metric will you decide for them that they’re wrong? That they “die” prematurely? How do you know they “die”? Can you falsify existence? Are you God (an omniscient observer who can map a total order on the universe)?

An easy case is when they make objectively verifiable predictions that fail to occur.

Non-sequitur. The effects occur regardless if some expectations were not congruent. You constructed a strawman which has no bearing on the point I made. Their being “wrong” in your chosen epistemological context may have no bearing for them from their perspective. You may simply live in another epistemological universe which they could careless to participate in.

Additionally I will reiterate that most of the activity in the universe can’t be objectively verified because total orders don’t exist. Even our supposedly inviolable laws of physics are merely contingent illusions on some complexity-scale of change/perception/consciousness. We exist within a subjective multiverse of unbounded simultaneous possibilities, limited only by our imagination and to some smallish extent the need for nourishment to the extent we need this physical body in order to exist.

For example to reify from the abstract to the more pragmatic, simpleton realm wherein you operate, the people who are afraid of a virus which I posit ostensibly doesn’t (or let’s say may not) even circulate in the human population aren’t interested to delve into the research on the topic. So they can’t be “wrong” because they never participated in the epistemological universe which makes predictions about that. Reality is a tangle-tango of “wrong” things from different perspectives of relevance to a being’s priorities and consciousness. This is a very complex topic and volumes of very deep philosophy has been explored by others. I am not going to engage in a hundred page philosophical debate with you in an issues thread for PL design.

A more sophisticated epistemological perspective is to weave all of those epistemological perspectives in a more holistic tangle-tango.

Can you falsify existence?

No, just function. I can't demonstrate that they no longer exist in some other form.

You also don’t know if their existence was cloned or downloaded for preservation by aliens who might possess advanced technology.

You also need to define existence. They may continue to exist as a cultural legacy that continues to morph and interact as if alive. And tie that into Dyson’s point that human evolution is no longer genetic but cultural.

But this doesn't fundamentally change that the mental model of there being an objective reality is extraordinarily, mindblowingly effective at making good predictions, or the value of seeking that objective reality, or the manner in which one needs to proceed in order to find a better understanding of it.

Objective reality and the correctness of predictions is relativistic to the perspective of the beholder

First-person perspective is primary to objective reality (annoyingly!), but objective reality is primary to third-person perspective.

Like-minded beholders typically congregate — aka groupthink. There are different complexity-scale epistemological universes/perspectives…

Popper is getting into some of the complexity of this and tying himself into Gordian knots contradicting the viability of his theory of falsification and you can’t just soundbite it and judge others with it in the simpleton way you seem to be lashing out with here

[…snipped the refuted (below) accusation…]

There are problems with falsification (I would read Lakatos for a stricter critique than Popper gives himself), no doubt. But it's simple, and useful.

And thus varying complexity-scale epistemological universes/perspectives.

(P.S.--yes, I have actually studied the research on false positive and negative rates of the tests! The numbers vary widely depending on the type of test and the type of sample. Here's a decent review from a couple months ago: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2765837) It is difficult to overstate how incorrect your views on this are.

There have been no statistically valid, blinded quality assurance evaluations! None.

I'm not sure how you [claim to] know?

I possess buried somewhere in a haystack, morass of emails a link to a recent research survey paper which has compiled everything. It cites all the cross-reactivity testing to-date with extensive references. And surveys the historical FPRs for RT-PCT testing for related virus. And computes an estimate of the expected FPR based on the historical context which afair was 2.9% — which admittedly is very crude but at least gives us the possibly of a range up to ~7% and that’s not including perhaps something diabolical that might have been inserted into the current testing regime (perhaps something inherent to the spike protein on this uploaded SARS-CoV-2 genome which seems to have some characteristics of a splicing of every human virus! and I can cite a research paper on that as well and I am not referring to the retracted Indian paper).

I will explain and cite better research and other points which you are either failing to pay attention to or who knows? But not here. @keean already knows the research paper I cited to him in a private message.

Why not here? You've put so much else here already?

Because I do not want to take an intermission to go sifting through the ~300 emails in that thread wherein the link is now buried. I will come back to that when I start blogging about this topic on the new site. Now that you’ve told me you were a top student in biology at U.C. Berkeley then I am very interested and motivated to have you check and refute my findings and conclusions. I want to be corrected by experts. Hopefully I can induce some experts to take advantage of the novel format for discussions and information distillation+collation that I’m working on.

There have been plenty of comparisons. Labeling things so you can't tell what's what until afterwards is common. Most assays are done in 96 well plate format, often with robots, where nobody can tell what's what anyway. It's just too much to eyeball. So it's a bit of a concern, maybe, if it's a single lab reporting modest effect sizes. But that's just not what is going on.

I guess if you don't understand the overall reliability of assays like this, you can fixate on something that people often don't even bother mentioning (good practice to blind things, yes).

If we look at Okamaoto et al. Japanese J. Infectious Disease 2020 (https://www.jstage.jst.go.jp/article/yoken/advpub/0/advpub_JJID.2020.108/_pdf/-char/en), for an early example, we see

The results using LM S&W-E and N2 set were perfectly consistent with each other, whereas two samples, which were positive using LM S&W-E and N2 sets, yielded negative results with the LN S&W-N set (Table 2). For the true negative samples, all the assays showed the same results (all samples were negative).

where the N2 assay is from the unique region of the N protein in SARS-CoV-2. These samples were "blinded" in that they hadn't been tested before. And look! There's high agreement with other tests that are from various other regions of the virus.

People PCR from all over the place: https://www.centerforhealthsecurity.org/resources/COVID-19/COVID-19-fact-sheets/200410-RT-PCR.pdf (check out page 3).

Thank you for sharing with me more information to chew on. I am not ready to do that deep dive now. Step-by-step. There’s no urgency nor would it be efficient use-of-my-time for me to dig in deep until I have the website application I think I need for this sort of detailed information distillation in a social context.

Just for fun, I did a BLAST against the U.S. CDC N2 right primer. Guess what? Only SARS-CoV-2 gives any good identity. You know that PCR doesn't work unless the primer has a good match to the target DNA, right? (RT in RT PCR means that the RNA is reverse-transcribed into DNA first.)

And what came up in the BLAST searches? Why, some of the many thousands of sequencing runs on the virus. Like this one: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nucleotide/MT632551.1.

Which, incidentally, is how people are following the frequency of the coat proteins.

I lack the domain knowledge at this level. And that is why I wrote I wanted to ask you many questions in the proper forum (not here). But you seem disinterested to have a discussion on a site which will intend to be indelible on a blockchain instead of a centralized database that can erased at-will by its owners. Why would anyone with a brain stem want to waste their effort on a centralized, closed source, non-persmissionless, non-trustless database? 😖

Are you stating it’s entirely and absolutely impossible to replicate (and thus amplify) the viral fragments if the primer doesn’t have a sufficient match to the target DNA? And thus that false positives due to amplified noise which does not have the target DNA would be implausible? (Note as you also alluded, noise in the assay is not the only way to get a false positive, there can also be cross-contamination and perhaps other failure modes).

And I ask you which common virus did they fail to include on their cross-reactivity tests?

Doesn't matter. The N region doesn't have substantial homology with anything widespread.

Then why do cross-reactivity testing at all on those widespread viruses they did test?

You see you are not really paying attention!

I not only am, I also have the background to understand what I'm reading.

Let’s reserve final judgement on whether your background and your application of it has been thorough enough.

Your extrapolation of this to mean something which it doesn’t would be fraud if that was the authors’ intent. Rather I think it is only everyone except the authors which are committing fraud by citing this and not articulating the limitations of what they have shown.

I don't see how it's fraud to cite a review article when I'm merely pointing out that I'm familiar with the published false positive and negative rates.

I was projecting. I mean “your” as representative of every brow-beating expert cited for example on the inane, corrupt mass media. I should have been more circumspect with my wording.

Note there have been numerous anecdotal reports of for example a goat and a papaya testing positive. And someone who was on the list to be tested but got tired of waiting in the queue, but somehow still tested positive even though no sample was taken. I have accumulated numerous instances of these.

When you do millions of anything, some weird stuff happens. You need rates, not anecdotes. (C.f. good epistemology.)

When you don’t have statistical evidence to refute the widespread anecdotal, then it’s anti-Popperian to make some (quite frankly arrogant and probably myopic) dismissive comment like that about a theory posited from the existence of such anecdotes. Because I am not myopically employing health science in isolation in my investigation of this matter. I am also tracing the money and the geopolitical motivations.

So then we must account for and delve into the numerous allegations by nurses and doctors of systemic abuse such as for example how a person is swabbed multiple times and these are all counted as separate positive “confirmed cases”. Or how mandatory testing multiple times over a period of days in order to be able to leave quarantine after testing positive and each of these is positives is counted as separate positive “confirmed cases”.

When there is documentation of systemic abuse and a money/political trail, then it behooves us to be also exceedingly skeptical and falsify more rigorously the health science — including searching for blindspots where fraud can lurk such as the chain-of-custody for testing.

Trump has recently decapitated the CDC by forcing all test results to come to his designated agency instead, because he wants only deaths that can’t be deaths due to comorbitities to be counted as COVID-19 deaths. The dialing back of the massive fraud that has been ongoing in the misclassification of COVID-19 deaths is perhaps one of the reasons the death rates are now dropping (whilst the alleged corrupted “confirmed cases” due to testing continue to rise).

However, I think you could do better than claims like "we have no peer reviewed, reproducible purification of the virus from humans" when it's been done plenty, (e.g. back in February, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7036342/); and when it's irrelevant because the viral genome creates Sars-CoV-2 in human cells (e.g. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092867420302294 to take one of a zillion examples) and the RNA tests show that the viral genome is in tons of people (so they are necessarily producing viral particles, because you don't get that much RNA without cells producing it, and when they do they make viral particles!).

You’re not paying attention! Do you not keep your eye on the magician’s off-hand? How can you prove to me you can trust a single patient purification? Have you researched the chain-of-custody for the samples? I have!

Okay, here I haven't. I'm just trusting that coordinating giving thousands of spiked samples in dozens of different countries is logistically impossible, given the incredibly much simpler stuff (like getting a test that works) that we botch all the time.

You’ve downgraded your claim from “billions” to “thousands”. Are you referring to mass produced RT-PCR testing or as I understand the distinction in layman’s terms the careful serological purification (not to be conflated with antibody markers serology testing) and isolation of the virus in an exacting lab? Where is the published data on these “thousands” of serological purifications from human subjects?

Again the chain-of-custody I have researched shows that those very few serological purifications end up only at WHO approved laboratories — sort of like the Raytheons and Lockheeds of the military-industrial complex that former POTUS Eisenhower warned about but in the health technocracy monstrosity.

"we have no peer reviewed, [independently] reproducible purification of the virus from humans" when it's been done plenty, (e.g. back in February, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7036342/)

You said IT DID NOT EXIST. I said there were plenty and cited one, disproving your claim of non-existence. (A handful is plenty. Maybe I should have cited a second to get the "reproducible" part.)

Your replies have ignored the crucial word in my sentence which I have now emphasized. A few diabolically controlled instances is not any statistically-relevant evidence of independent reproducibility.

Then, on the same point

and when it's irrelevant because the viral genome creates Sars-CoV-2 in human cells (e.g. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092867420302294 to take one of a zillion examples)

The zillion examples were not of purification of viral particles!

Exactly!

They were that you get functionally active virus.

Or all false positives and thus no virus at all.

The RNA tests are returning a positive rate equivalent to the false positive rate. And they may be cross-reacting with a common human virus which was not in their cross-reactivity testing.

Oh come on, no they're not! Even if you think they're way higher than is stated, what's up with Arizona's % positive rate?!

Fraud. Someone is ostensibly spiking the assays.

It is a fact that if one wants to post highly intelligent material which reveals truths that our overlords to not want us to know, then Quora censors it.

I doubt that that's the algorithm, but it could, admittedly, end up having that effect.

I did the tests and I guarantee you that is the algorithm. I have written entirely innocuous answers for example about how Bitcoin Core is an impostor softfork that will be destroyed as the Nash equilibrium is incentivized to take back the SegWit ANYONECANSPEND booty as Satoshi promised when he wrote, “Imagine if gold turned to lead when stolen. If the thief gives it back, it turns to gold again,” My answer was deleted; whereas, my other speculative answers about Bitcoin are not deleted although analogously controversial.

If you’re sufficiently motivated perhaps go test Quora for yourself to falsify my claim.

I'm addressing whether you need to isolate the virus.

And you did not adequately address it.

You said "we have no peer reviewed, reproducible purification of the virus from humans" and I am, after quoting it, how on earth could I be any more clear!, both addressing whether the claim is true (it's not[you have not refuted!]) and why it's irrelevant (because you only need to look for RNA, not virus particles, to know that the particles are there)!

Not if the RT-PCT tests are all false positives due to a combination of the natural FPR and institutionalized fraud layered on top of that. Obviously the Southern states are being targeted politically with fabricated amplified positive rates because they have defied the extended lockdowns. But the death rate is declining thus clearly indicating that the testings is nonsense.

Or it could just be an extreme uptick in the spread of the virus in a warm, arid climate (wherein airborne viruses don’t spread well during summer) because people stopped social distancing. 🙄 💩

The elephant in the living room is how the cabal has engineered this pLandemic, intermission disruption of our ephemeral herd immunity to all respiratory virus — which may result in an actual pandemic by 2022! The ~$5 – 10 trillion in actualized losses is not even a pimple on the elephant’s arse of the deleveraging and dominoed public health damage that has been baked in already.

Good grief.

So sloppy.

Indeed.

Indeed on you! 😜

Get your (highly intelligent and more expert domain knowledge) head out of the sand and observe what is going on in the world around you.

You could be utilizing your capabilities to help humankind in this moment of crisis wherein our society has been hijacked by a massive corruption. It behooves you and other smart individuals who comment on LessWrong to be more woke.

There are lots of more forgiving areas. Reddit, even.

Not on a blockchain. Not permissionless. Not trustless. Not indelible. Closed-source database. Someone other than me owns my data and effort.

I am sure I could write on other topics and not be censored, but I have a finite amount of time and my priorities on those issues which Quora does not want me to talk about.

I do not know what thoughtless bubble you live in but I hope your “antiseptic non-nonsensical” reality serves you well over the tumultuous decade underway.

Quora is only useful for certain things.

Yeah only for discussion which does not challenge the facts that are not congruent with the leftist holiness spiral.

LessWrong is an example (hardly the only one) of something other than an antiseptic non-nonsensical bubble.

Smart people congregate there. Unfortunately it lacks the desired technological properties.

Potassium 40 has a half-life of ~1.25 billion years and ~90% of the time is converted via beta-decay to Calcium 40. And so on.

For example as a freshman at L.S.U., I placed #3 on the final exams out of 3 (or maybe it was 5 sections, my memory is a bit fuzzy) sections (~300 students) filling a huge auditorium for Chemistry 101

Um, sure, fine, and I (honestly) got the top grade in like 1500 students in intro biology at U.C. Berkeley. But who cares? If I say things about biology (or whatever) that aren't supported, and other people say things that contradict me and are supported, you should tentatively believe them, not me.

Because you were making presumptions about my level of capability which were too far below my actual capability. I am not a domain expert, but I am not the dunce you were initially projecting me to be.

P.S. I aspired to UC Berkeley. I was accepted to UCSB for BSEE but denied at Berkeley (quota system and affirmative action apparently and although in the highly intelligent range I wasn’t in the elitist range on SAT nor athletics) so I ended up back in the south at L.S.U. after graduating high school in California. I won league champion in XCountry in 10th grade with over 100m lead at the finish with a 16:09 time for 3 miles at Rancho Park, Century City at the JV level. But I’m too short and stocky legged to be an elite track athlete. If someone had pushed me on that day instead of coasting to victory I probably could have gone for ~15:45 or maybe even 15:30 — my all-time best in 12th grade was I think in the very low 15s. I probably should have stuck with American football (4.5 speed, defensive back, highly elusive rat punt returner) where as I was a MVP at the JV level in 9th grade before transferring to California and adopting the drunkard, beach bum culture.


EDIT:

If you were being humble about it, I'd be less condescending.

Pot calling the kettle black. I was at first patient through several consecutive posts of your ad hominem and apparent arrogance. I was attempting to be cautious and let it all slide off my back for while. Now I am unloading on you, because you’re cavalier attitude about omniscience is quite pitiful actually. Hoping to shock you into applying the talents you have less selfishly and smugly.

The more life experience I gain, I am becoming more convinced that Robin Williams had a better grip on reality than most of us.


EDIT#2: Popper teaches you to not ignore data. Employing a multidisplinary approach to this virus pLandemic hoax makes it much easier to sniff where the blindspots might be in the public healthcare, health policy and health science analysis. I reiterate FOLLOW THE MONEY:

First let’s note some new developments on the what our overlords have been doing to us sheep especially accelerated since 9/11/2001 (and Bill Cooper did predict the 9/11 event on my birthday June 28, 2001).

University Study Finds Fire Did Not Cause Building 7’s Collapse on 9/11

On March 25, 2020, researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks issued the final report of a four-year computer modeling study on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7.

The 47-story WTC 7 was the third skyscraper to be completely destroyed on September 11, 2001, collapsing rapidly and symmetrically into its footprint at 5:20 PM. Seven years later, investigators at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) concluded that WTC 7 was the first steel-framed high-rise ever to have collapsed solely as a result of normal office fires.

Contrary to the conclusions of NIST, the UAF research team found that the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11 was caused not by fires but by the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.

Following the release of this report, AE911Truth and 10 family members of 9/11 victims submitted a formal request for correction to NIST’s report on WTC 7 based partially on the UAF findings. The request is currently pending.

NIST Issues Update on Pending Request for Correction to Building 7 Report

NIST Issues Update on Pending Request for Correction to Building 7 Report

AE911Truth, June 15, 2020

The National Institute of Standards and Technology this past Friday issued an update regarding the pending “request for correction” to its 2008 report on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. In an email sent to Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Daniel G. Cipra, a senior analyst in NIST’s Management and Organization office, wrote:

“Your request for correction of information under the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Guidelines for Ensuring the Quality of Information Disseminated to the Public dated April 15, 2020, is currently under review. While our goal is to respond within sixty days to such requests, we are unable to do so in this case. A response providing the Agency’s view will be forwarded to you as soon as possible."

AE911Truth, 88 architects and structural engineers, and ten family members of 9/11 victims submitted the request on April 15, 2020. Together, they seek to have NIST reverse its conclusion that fires caused Building 7's destruction.

[image: NIST WTC 7 RFC 4.14.20 1024 v5]

Under the procedure governing requests submitted to NIST, the agency must provide an initial decision within 120 days of the submission, which would be on August 13, 2020.

If NIST elects not to take the corrective action sought, it is required to provide a “point-by-point response to any relevant data quality arguments contained in the request.” The requesters would then have 30 days to file an appeal with NIST Associate Director of Laboratory Programs James K. Olthoff. The procedure governing requests dictates that “No individuals who were involved in the initial denial will be involved in the review of or response to the appeal.” Mr. Olthoff’s decision would constitute a final decision of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Should NIST fail in any way to comply with the procedure governing requests or should it fail to rectify the information quality violations documented in the request, AE911Truth and its fellow requesters will consider legal action under the Administrative Procedure Act.

The request for correction, which comprises more than 100 pages and five exhibits, covers eight separate items of information that it says violate the agency’s information quality standards. Only if NIST revises its “probable collapse sequence” — effectively reversing its conclusion that fires caused the building’s destruction — can it correct these violations, the request contends.

The request is based in part on a report issued in March 2020 by researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, who concluded definitively that the destruction of the 47-story Building 7 was not caused by fires. Their extensive, four-year computer modeling effort, funded by AE911Truth, was followed by a robust peer review process, which included dozens of comments from the public as well as review by two external, independent experts.

“We are proud to have supported the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Professor Leroy Hulsey in conducting a genuinely scientific study into the reasons for this building’s collapse,” said Richard Gage, AIA, founder of AE911Truth. “Now that the study is complete, the request for correction will force NIST to reverse its outlandish conclusion that fires were the cause of the collapse.”

Analysis: Dominant Hypothesis Among Reporters on 9/11 Was that Explosions Brought Down Twin Towers

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth today published a groundbreaking paper by researchers Ted Walter and Graeme MacQueen documenting the findings from their review of 70 hours of 9/11 news footage.

In total, Walter and MacQueen identified 36 news reporters across 11 different channels who either reported the occurrence of explosions during the Twin Towers’ destruction or who afterward referred to the destruction as an explosion-based event or who reported the possible use of explosives based on information from government sources.

The 36 reporters include, by network, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and Cynthia McFadden; CBS’s Harold Dow, Tom Flynn, Mika Brzezinski, and Carol Marin (appearing on WCBS); NBC’s Pat Dawson and Anne Thompson; CNN’s Aaron Brown, Rose Arce, Patty Sabga, and Alan Dodds Frank; Fox News’ David Lee Miller and Rick Leventhal; MSNBC’s Ashleigh Banfield and Rick Sanchez; CNBC’s John Bussey, Ron Insana, and Bob Pisani; WABC’s N.J. Burkett, Michelle Charlesworth, Nina Pineda, Cheryl Fiandaca, and Joe Torres; WCBS’s John Slattery, Marcella Palmer, Vince DeMentri, and Marcia Kramer; WNBC’s Walter Perez; New York 1’s Kristen Shaughnessy, Andrew Siff, John Schiumo, and Andrew Kirtzman; USA Today’s Jack Kelley; and two unidentified reporters (1 and 2) who attended a press conference with Mayor Giuliani and Governor Pataki.

The paper, titled “How 36 Reporters Brought Us the Twin Towers’ Explosive Demolition on 9/11,” includes extensive appendices where every news clip can be viewed.

Walter and MacQueen conclude that the hypothesis of explosions bringing down the Twin Towers was not only prevalent among reporters but was, in fact, the dominant hypothesis. Next, they plan to publish a follow-up paper examining how the hypothesis of fire-induced collapse so quickly supplanted the originally dominant explosion hypothesis.

So let’s rewind the development of Armstrong’s understanding of the pLandemic:

Posted Feb 21, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Wasn’t Bloomberg part of the manipulation of the US Treasury Auctions at Salomon Brothers?

ANSWER: No, he sold out to Phibro and was not asked to stay on. In 1973, Bloomberg became a general partner at Salomon Brothers, where he headed equity trading and, later, systems development. In 1981, Salomon Brothers was bought by Phibro Corporation, and Bloomberg was laid off from the investment bank. Perhaps they saw his personality and did not see where he would fit into the bank with what many say was a position of self-importance. Bloomberg News was founded by Michael Bloomberg and Matthew Winkler in 1990 to deliver financial news reporting to Bloomberg Terminal subscribers. The agency was established in 1990 with a team of six people while Winkler was the editor-in-chief.

Michael Bloomberg had the audacity to deliver a speech at the Democratic Convention saying, “There are times when I disagree with Hillary Clinton. But let me tell you, whatever our disagreements may be, I’ve come here to say: We must put them aside for the good of our country. And we must unite around the candidate who can defeat a dangerous demagogue.”

He tried banning large sugary drinks which took effect on March 12, 2013. The pizza deliverymen were prohibited by LAW from delivering 2-liter bottles of soda, assuming one person would drink the whole thing. He never heard of a pizza party or a Superbowl party. Bloomberg is a very dangerous demagogue who accused Trump of being one. Perhaps it takes one to know one. The definition of a demagogue is a political leader who seeks support by appealing to the desires and prejudices of ordinary people rather than using rational argument. As far as a demagogue having the skills to manipulate the press, that’s not Trump, but that is Bloomberg who owns the press. “a gifted demagogue with particular skill in manipulating the press”

For someone who came from the market-manipulating house of Solomon Brothers, his attempts on stop-and-frisk, changing the law so he could continually run New York City eliminating term-limits, and his attempt to outlaw 2-liter bottles of soda are just the definition of a demagogue. He will take the green agenda and implement it in a dictatorial fashion as he ran New York City.

However, Bloomberg’s actions with regard to “Occupy Wall Street” were so outrageous in how he protected his clients with terminals. He even drew outrage from the Washington Post (Bloomberg’s disgraceful eviction of Occupy Wall Street). Bloomberg defended Wall Street against the protest “Occupy Wall Street” and arrested people for exercising their First Amendment Rights. Again, Bloomberg acted like a dictator. The Washington Post wrote: “The behavior of the NYPD and the mayor’s office, in ordering this brazen action while blocking the press and the public from reporting on the eviction, is a disgraceful display of unnecessary force on a protest that for the most part has behaved lawfully and respectfully throughout its two-month existence.”

Kathy Kiely, the Washington news director at Bloomberg Politics, said she resigned from her post after growing uncomfortable with the way her outlet responded to news that Bloomberg is considering an independent White House bid. She said when she resigned in January 2016, “I think that Michael Bloomberg has built a terrific news organization but that he needs to liberate it to cover all the news, even the news about him.”

Actions speak louder than words. All of the actions of Bloomberg in New York City are a warning sign that this guy is a real threat to the American Constitution. He refuses to respect the right of freedom, speech, First Amendment, or due process of law. We will see Bloomberg News now become CNN in the financial world and distort all facts to support moving their leader to the White House.

[…] if there is a pandemic, the World Health Organisation gets to keep money and the bondholders lose. You figure out who would be asking for help.

For those who are not part of the conspiracy networks, this is related to the outstanding World Bank Pandemic Bonds which will come due for expiration this July here in 2020. This will be in the neighborhood of $500 million which is perhaps a structured derivative time bomb that most people have never heard of.

These pandemic bonds were sold to investors as a giant gamble in the global financial casino. The World Bank sold “pandemic bonds” which were a scheme like no other. In 2017, these bonds were sold to private investors on the premise that they would lose their money if any of six deadly pandemics hit. They did not pay out in 2019 when the Ebola virus broke out in Africa. The World Bank announced the creation of these structured bonds in May 2016 at the G7 Finance Ministers and Central Governors meeting in Sendai, Japan.

The World Health Organisation will keep the money and will use it to fight the outbreak. Investors bought the bonds and received regular coupon payments in return, which were substantial in this world of negative interest rates. If there is an outbreak of disease turned into a pandemic, then investors don’t get their initial money back. There are two varieties of debt that are scheduled to mature in July 2020.

QUESTION: Hi Martin, I’ve been following your blog for some years now, its the first thing i check why I wake up daily. I feel I get a better perspective of the world around me reading your blogs rather than browsing news sites. There are so many questions on which I would love to hear your opnion. I’m an IT consultant here in the UK and fed up of politicians going after hard working folks. Its always the middle class that gets squeezed between low and high income earners. My question is which country in your opinion is the best amongst the lot where you would move. UK, I feel, will get bad under Boris and taxes have already started to go up. Europe is clearly down and US would also follow suit once Trump is gone. If you had to pick one country in Asia, Europe and Americas and finally in any part of the world, which one would it be? I’m originally from India so would be easier for me to move there. Is it Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland? or there is no place to hide 🙂 Thanks in advance.

ANSWER: All governments in the West are going to be raising taxes dramatically. They will NEVER reform and step back. That means they would have to change the very power structure of government. We are looking at the expansion of separatist movements and probably armed conflicts post-2020 into 2032. You will see separatist movements even in the United States. So you have to look at the region and be very specific.

It is very hard to pinpoint a place at this stage in the game. The USA will be better than the other Anglo-Saxon countries, but that may last only until 2024 at best. Southeast Asia will be OK, but keep in mind it has already seen protests against foreigners in places like Singapore.

Bottom line — this is not going well and we are looking at a global political crisis developing over the next 12 years.

Posted Feb 27, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
COMMENT: Marty; 29 million people have the flu this year in the USA. Nobody talks about that or how that will usually have a death rate of 2% (580,000). The elderly are always vulnerable to this every year. Nobody talks about that but the coronavirus with the same death rate gets all the attention when there are only 60 cases in California. Something is just not right. It seems like this is scare tactics as you have said.

REPLY: I am not yet ready to comment. I am checking on facts to verify if this is indeed politically motivated tactics in hopes of creating a recession to blame Trump with for the election. I agree. Something is not right here.

Our model suggests that 2021/2022 should see a peak in such disease. Either this develops slowly and becomes more of a pandemic at that time, or there is a sequel coming down the road […] I prefer real data. I am waiting for the documented numbers outside of China to compare. Then all the claims of China hiding the real numbers will be verified.

[…]

I do not like to speculate for I know how this nonsense can turn into a panic that may not be warranted. Influenza spreads around the world in yearly regular outbreaks. This results in about three to five million cases of severe illness and about 290,000 to 650,000 deaths. About 20% of unvaccinated children and 10% of unvaccinated adults are infected each year.

https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/world-news/war/coronavirus-conspiracy-to-eliminate-paper-money/

Posted Mar 6, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Many people are starting to question why this coronavirus has been whipped up into a major panic when the annual flu kills far more people. Perhaps they have enlisted the conspiracy contingents who turn everything into the end of the world and are so eager to paint doom and gloom as a lethal weapon for mass financial destruction. They may not realize that they are being played for fools spitting out various conspiracies such as biological weapons laced with AIDS that will kill 50% of the population without a single shred of proof.

Curiously, the World Health Organisation (WHO), which is a specialized agency of the United Nations established on April 7th, 1948, and is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, has advised people to use contactless technology instead of cash as banknotes may be spreading the coronavirus. It is interesting since paper money has long been recognized as a hospitable environment for gross microbes including viruses and bacteria. Both can live on most surfaces for about 48 hours. However, the claim is that suddenly paper money reportedly transports a live flu virus for up to 17 days. The question emerges: If this has always been the case, then suddenly why now warn about using paper money? Is this part of a broader plot to eliminate cash in order for governments to take whatever taxes they need when the entire social structure is collapsing around them

https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/south_america/south-america-economically-politically-on-fire/

Posted Mar 9, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
South America has been intertwined with socialism and corruption. Political stability and economic recovery for South America have been a wish that has seemed to be always very elusive. But the hopes and dreams have never been fulfilled. In many countries, politicians with sole claim to power are pushing to power, heavily indebted countries are facing bankruptcy, the rich are getting richer, the poor are poorer, demonstrators and police are fighting bloody street battles. An entire continent is in turmoil — South America is on fire! There appears to be a political-economic crisis that is coming to a boil.

Today, South America appears to be unraveling economically and politically. It was only a decade ago when its future seemed bright and all we heard was about investing in emerging markets. Its economy was growing whereas poverty and income inequality were in decline. Yet, the economic boom came on the back of commodities. The abundance brought by high commodity prices even allowed counter-cyclical policies at the time of the US subprime crisis. As always, foolish investors pour in money without regard to historical problems with repaying debt.

As the economies implode and political chaos rises, commodity production will decline over the next two years and this may set things up for the commodity boom into 2024 based on a SHORTAGE OF SUPPLY rather than outright demand.

QUESTION: First, Thank You for sharing your knowledge about the way the Planetary Economy really works without all the BS. Please do not get discouraged and keep up the outstanding work.

My question is, since the world economy already had serious problems BEFORE the Corona Virus, are the “Powers That Be” going to use this pandemic as a reason the world economy is tanking and attempt to hide their past economic sins and incompetence under the diseases skirts?

ANSWER: My observations of working with governments since the early 1980s boils down to one simple truth — they love crises. A politician cannot run for office saying vote for me because I prevented you from losing your job. Nobody will believe them. It is far better if you lose your job and then a politician can scream, “Vote for me and I will get the guy that cost you your job!”

Similarly, Ben Franklin observed a derivative of what I am saying. You cannot secure liberty by surrendering it because of some urgent crisis. We are already hearing rumblings about how paper money is now suddenly dangerous for it can spread the coronavirus. This virus offers an excuse for regulations, changes to the economy, and of course more reasons to raise taxes.

The problems that were already in motion can simply be used by blaming it on the virus

The Cyclical Nature of Disease

Posted Mar 12, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
To me, this entire conspiracy about a biological weapon leak presents the very same danger as Keynesian Economics and climate change. It has served as a distraction from our understanding that there is a cyclical nature to viruses and we are not paying attention to the fact that this is also a natural process of the existence of viruses to thin the herd. We need not create one, nature will do that without our help as is the case with economics and climate change. Cycles are the nature to everything. Yet, we never seem to learn from the past. The SARS & MERS were 8.6 years apart.

I have provided the percent of the population being affected has not even reached 1/10th of one percent. When we look at this Coronavirus scare, it does not even compare to all the deaths taking place every single day from a host of other diseases nobody bothers to ever mention. This really makes me wonder just who is orchestrating this panic and is the purpose really to expand government powers?

The World Health Organization (WHO) made the announcement on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, that the Coronavirus is a “pandemic” which is actually not as bad as an Epidemic which is a term that describes any problem that has grown out of control. An epidemic is therefore defined as “an outbreak of a disease that occurs over a wide geographic area and affects an exceptionally high proportion of the population.” Consequently, an epidemic requires a high proportion of society to be infected and is an event in which a disease is actively spreading. That is clearly not the case with the coronavirus. since the proportion of society infected has not even reached 1/10th of one percent of the population.

In contrast, the term pandemic relates to geographic spread and is used to describe a disease that affects a whole country or the entire world. This has nothing to do with the proportion of the population that is infected.

The WHO has a financial incentive in declaring this a pandemic. It issued Pandemic Bonds paying 7% interest which now the WHO does not have to repay.

Note the above infographic has been updated as follows but realize the “COVID-19 deaths” is a meaningless statistic because I have presented significant evidence of the ongoing, egregious fraud that many if not most deaths due-to-all-causes are being misclassified as a “COVID-19 death” on death certificates:

A FICTIONAL EXERCISE TO CONTROL PANDEMIC – Oct. 18, 2019 – That is Destroying the World Economy

Posted Mar 13, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
This is a video of select moments from the Event 201 pandemic tabletop exercise hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation back on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. What this illustrates is how these people think only about a pandemic and how to shut down everything without any regard to the impact on the global economy.

These are the types of people advising governments and shutting down everything. One friend’s daughter was just told her university was closed for five weeks. Others I know who are actually working in hospitals, dealing with patients infected, see this as a joke. They have assured me that although most people will probably get the virus, they will never know and will assume it is just the flu and it will run its course.

Meanwhile, we have complete idiots running the ship who only care about people not getting the flu with no regard to what they are doing to the global economy. We are at the stage where they are bringing down the entire structure globally. An invisible virus has exposed our true strengths and weaknesses. It has also exposed the structural faults in our systems under Keynesian Economics.

This CaronaGate was perhaps intentional to gain more power, as was the case out of 9/11. Perhaps it is the product of absolute idiots who only think about stopping a pandemic that has a lower mortality rate than the general flu virus. Either way, we are looking at serious economic implications for their means of fighting a flu that has amounted to an economic policy of scorched earth.

https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/politics/cycles-of-internal-political-confrontation-turned-up-march-10-2020/

Posted Mar 13, 2020 by Martin Armstrong COMMENT: Marty, you make so many forecasts on so many aspects of the world economy in politics, I am not sure you even keep track. You wrote back on March 9, 2017: “It appears that we are headed back to the mid-19th century when brawls broke out on the floor of Congress … We are looking at the risk of a complete breakdown in the country come as early as March 10th, 2020.” Trump refused to attend the St Patrick Day event in Washington because of the hostility with the Democrats. How could you pick even the week more than 3 years in advance?

QUESTION: Martin, thank you for enlightening us. I have been following your blog for many years. I save posts referring to future important events, like the one you mentioned in the following one: “…..We are looking at the risk of a complete breakdown in the country come as early as March 10th, 2020.” Was this forecast based on a specific cycle?

ANSWER: Yes. It is an internal cycle; we run on government and the hostility between the two parties. It was due to turn up on March 10th, 2020. It is very curious that we get so much surrounding this event including the market crash. We did not factor in St Patrick’s Day. Trump declined to attend because of Pelosi, which is precisely what this cycle forecasts. Very curious.

German Comment on Nationalizing It Industry due to Coronavirus is Insane!

Posted Mar 16, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Dear Mr. Armstrong, I have been following you for a few years and what strikes me most is that I read [on your blog] years ago that China would collapse in 2020 but that Asia will recover and will be the driving continent from 2036 …

ANSWER: PeterAltmaier, the Federal Minister of Economic Affairs, was joined by the left-wing Schultz in a joint statement that effectively said that since they cannot bail out companies, perhaps they would just NATIONIZE them. Austerity has been imposed on Europe by Germany and the refusal to consolidate the debts was all because Kohl wanted a single currency to increase German sales throughout Europe, but he did not want to accept a true federalization of debt – having your cake and eat it simultaneously.

This has been the disastrous structural flaw of the Euro. It has not worked and what we see is the Coronavirus is being used to reverse that posture and even justify the entire confiscation of private assets by nationalizing companies. This will be the final nail in the coffin of Europe. Why would any investor be interested in European stocks if the government can act like Iran and just confiscate all private assets?

The economic structure is crumbling. This is why China will rise, not so much that it will be so fantastic, but that the West is gradually committing economic suicide. We have so many people repeating the Coronavirus beating it into such a major scare tactic that people are then willing to surrender all their rights when they are being told it is for their own good. I went behind the Berlin Wall before it fell. They told the people it was not to keep them in but to keep others out because Communism was so fantastic. Obviously, Bernie Sanders believed that one.

https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/disease/coronavirus-is-mutating-cure-maybe-weeks-away/

Posted Mar 17, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
In 1918, the world was a very different place. Doctors knew viruses existed but had never seen one. There was no testing so people really did not know if they should be quarantined. While the Spanish flu killed 50 million people, the mortality rate was 2.5%. Some say that many died from taking excessive doses of aspirin. Others say the flu actually began in China. However, that flu killed more people in their 20s to 40s. Researchers believe the 1918 flu spared older people because they had some immunity to it.

The theory as to why the elderly were spared was predicated on the idea that decades before, there had been a version of that virus that was not as lethal and spread like the ordinary flu. Therefore, older people living in 1918 may have been exposed to that less lethal version of the flu and developed antibodies. With respect to children, most viral illnesses such as measles and chickenpox are far more deadly in young adults. This may also be the reason the children were spared leaving the most vulnerable being the young adults during the 1918 epidemic.

If this version of the coronavirus subsides with the normal flu season, then a more lethal version could evolve for the 2021/2022 flu season or at least one that spreads faster more like the 1918 Spanish flu. We will not know until the next flu season.

For those unfamiliar with the germ theory of disease, it was the major achievement of French scientist Louis Pasteur. He discovered that healthy silk worms became ill when they nested in the bedding of those suffering from the disease.

I have searched history to try to find any such period where there has been such a panic over such a minimal event. I would understand if we were dealing with a kill ratio of 20%+ to justify calling off elections, closing stores, and imposing curfews. The advice that Trump has received is absolutely insane. The damage to the economy is off the charts. Yes, if we all stay in our homes and never go out that will stop the flu from spreading. But at what cost to the economy?

What is unfolding is NOT going to be repaired so easily. In Washington, they are already circulating proposals that they may need to create a $1 trillion bailout fund for everything from airlines to restaurants. The amount of money sought just by airlines does not reflect the damage being done to small businesses. Unemployment will rise because they are destroying small business and that is the sector that employs 70% of the workforce. The airlines will get aid, but it will not trickle down to the small businesses.

Those pushing this panic are really doing long-term damage and they are only destroying their own liberty.

Far more people die of the flu and even smoking than this virus. We do not shut down commerce because of such diseases.

Grab for Dictatorial Powers Using Coronavirus

Posted Mar 18, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
I have been in contact with some people who are on the Hill in Washington who are growing concerned that this may be an orchestrated grab for power. The CDC has long sought dictatorial powers and has been pushing legislation under the title of the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act. It is a draft of model legislation to increase state powers to respond to bio-terrorism or other outbreaks of disease that the Centers for Disease Control and others want the states to pass into law. Although such legislation is needed, the current draft of the Model Act, unfortunately, is written in a way that doesn’t adequately protect citizens against the misuse of the tremendous powers that it would grant in an emergency.

The CDC seeks extraordinary emergency powers where there are no checks or balances. When you go to a doctor they always tell you to get a SECOND opinion. Public health authorities make mistakes. We all know that politicians abuse their powers and those in government’s deep state seek absolute rule for everyone is a potential enemy. Even take what they did to the Japanese during World War II. The government has a history of discriminatory abuse of power when it comes to the quarantines. The lack of checks and balances is always a major threat to civil liberty. They will always go too far.

This is becoming a power grab just as they used 9/11. There are no cases were I am. Nevertheless, they have panicked and imposed curfews. A lot of girls in college work as servers. Restaurants are closing and students who are already screwed by the system cannot go bankrupt on worthless degrees and cannot even earn money to live. This has gone way too far.

Socialism & the Coronavirus

Posted Mar 18, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
COMMENT: I think this is being used by socialists to justify complete government control. They criticize Trump saying he did not act soon enough. I just do not understand that these people think the government should protect us from everything. The person I was talking to was a teacher. They think everyone cares too much about money. They are really naive. If people do not work they can’t pay taxes and then what? I do not understand their reasoning. Over 38,000 people die in car crashes every year. So using their logic, we should all give up our cars and just stay in our houses and never leave. They are getting really scary.

REPLY: The joke is Bernie Sanders walks into a bar and yells, “Free drinks for everyone!” The bartender asks, “Who’s buying?” Bernie says, “Well it’s obviously the guy who has the most money!” The crowd cheers! “That’s you Bernie! We are all unemployed because of the coronavirus!”

You are right, government workers do not understand the economy. They think Trump only cares about money and the rich. But it is the people in the private sector who pay the taxes that support their lifestyle — not just the rich. They see the world only through their eyes and believe the government has endless pockets. They have 100% job security because the government just raises taxes when it needs more money and they’ll throw you in prison if you refuse to pay.

What is really interesting is that by shutting down the economy, people will lose jobs, small businesses will cease to exist, unemployment will rise, tax revenue will decline, and then the very people pushing this panic inside the government will suddenly lose their pensions. That may be the only poetic justice coming out of this mess.

John Hopkins has removed the death count because it has exposed their recommendations that have destroyed the world economy.

Are They Planning ID2020 as Mandatory Implants for All as the Solution to the Crisis?

Posted Mar 19, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
There is a very concerning proposal running around in Washington. The technology already exists for pets which is an electronic microchip or transponder. A subcutaneous electronic microchip allows you to identify your pet. It is no larger than a grain of rice and only takes a few minutes for your vet to insert. A transponder does not emit any electric waves once inserted.

The proposal is a digital certificate that verifies if you have been vaccinated and was developed by MIT and Microsoft. They are looking at merging this with Bill Gates’ ID2020. It is entirely possible that this scare has been a deliberate plot to get people to accept these digital implants. Refuse, and you will be prohibited from social gatherings. Like 9/11 conditioned us to be x-rayed before entering a plane, now the next stage is to embed digital markers that they have been using in dogs and cats.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOxRR2Tw94Y

Bill Gates has sought to impose mandatory ID chips in you. He argues that his idea is not an infringement on privacy.

The United Nations’ WHO is part of this ID2020. Scaring the world and making people feel unsafe unless they are certified not to have this coronavirus just may be part of the plot behind the curtain. I hate conspiracy theories, but this is in the open. The health industry is destroying the world economy and making people feel unsafe. Unemployment is skyrocketing as people lose their jobs and will be then conditioned that if they have been certified, then and only then will they be safe to return to the workforce.

Posted Mar 19, 2020 by Martin Armstrong In France, journalists are no longer allowed to go out and cover stories. They need permission from the government and must explain what the story is about. Then their editors must also approve before they even seek permission from the government. There are reliable leads that this is a manufactured crisis coming from people seeking to further the global socialist agenda out of the United Nations. I have confirmation that the central banks have NOT been apart of this and they are being pushed into the corner. Hedge funds are being wiped out and the losses are staggering. The main reason seems to be that the bulk of the industry relies on fundamental analysis. This has proven that they were caught completely off guard because this virus does not warrant shutting down the entire world economy. Now, journalists who are skeptical are being sequestered to prevent exposing what is going on.

Those touting the virus is being understated may love their own conspiracy world, but they are being used for a much more serious agenda.

Something Strange about Coronavirus Scare

Posted Mar 20, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Those of you who keep pushing this disease into a panic, claiming the numbers are fake and it is much worse, are being used as pawns for the ID2020. The real concern is that there are other coronaviruses which typically amount to 14% of flu-like diseases each year. This has contributed to false-positive claims of the coronavirus. Even the American Dental Association has instructed dentists to shutdown for 2 weeks. With less than 15,000 reported cases in the USA, given that the 2018 population was 327.2 million, we are talking about 0.00004% of the population. If the number of flu-caused deaths exceeds 7.7 percent of the total, then the United States officially has an epidemic on its hands.

There is something much more sinister going on here and it has nothing to do with the coronavirus. You do not shut down the world economy for such a minor incident. An epidemic would require more than 4 million deaths in the United States – not less than 250.

Something is Just Not Right Here

COMMENT: Trying times. The news just seems to keep getting worse. Not the actual news about the virus itself, but rather, the wake of destruction left behind the actions taken to “flatten the curve”. As a Californian, it seems like Newsom is spreading panic rather than mitigating it. My wife and I have been diligently saving for the future and are in a slightly better position to weather this crisis than many of our peers. But now the narrative seems to be we should expect 18 months of this state destruction of private enterprise […]

REPLY: The New York governor is locking down the state. You must be a critical business to be open. This really makes no sense. Even if 10% of the population got the virus and say 10% of them were to die, then we are at 1968 flu epidemic levels where 3 million people died. They did not shut down the world economy for that. There is another agenda here. There is no evidence that this would ever last for 18 months. All viruses peak out and it already has in Asia. So why 18 months? Something is just not right. It appears they are using this as a pretense to prevent civil unrest that they know is rising. Even if a journalist has doubts, the editors are blocking any contrary reporting. So much for the press doing any investigation here.

Why We Should NOT Test Everyone

Posted Mar 20, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
COMMENT FROM MEDICAL INDUSTRY

Let’s also keep in mind that our tests are not perfect, and extensive testing for a disease with a very low incidence will lead to many more false positive results, than true positive results.

If we carry out extensive screening for COVID-19, we are at even greater risk of our tests failing us. Assuming about 15,000 infections in a country of about 300,000,000 people, that gives an approximate incidence of 0.005%. The most accurate test has a specificity of about 95%. This means that if we carried out population-wide screening, that 99.9% of the confirmed positive test results will be a false positive result, meaning that approximately 14,999,250 people tested will have a positive test result, but do not have the disease, meanwhile only 14,250 of the 15,000 who have the disease will have a positive test result.

This is why we only want to test those individuals who have a possibly significant history of exposure, and appropriate symptoms of the disease that we are testing for.

Ronin Capital Cannot Meet CME Clearing

Posted Mar 20, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
The arrogance of the medical profession who justify this insanity will result in poetic justice – they have probably lost their entire pension funds by now. The CME Chicago futures exchange is in crisis mode invoking emergency protocols to auction off the portfolios of Ronin Capital, which is based in Chicago. It has been confirmed that Ronin had clients who could not meet their margin calls. We are approaching the reminiscent days of the Panic of 1907 when JP Morgan fought to prevent the closure of the New York Stock Exchange for the failure to meet margin calls. It was his actions that were studied and used for the design of the Federal Reserve in 1913.

The CME Group has raised margins 2 times this week in the mini SP500 futures….. Last week’s margin was 7700. Then on Tues or Wed it was raised to 9900. Then last night it was raised again to 13200 per contract. Ronin’s clients cannot keep meeting margin calls that keep being raised.

The damage these people have cause to the world economy, not just the financial markets, will run into the trillions. They have destroyed capital formation and their own zest for power will leave them staring at a black hole in their own pensions unless, of course, they moved to cash before they started yelling.

Is the Arrogance Over Quarantine Leading to Social Unrest?

Posted Mar 21, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, in previous months you made mention that Socrates was pointing to June/July as a time of civil unrest in the states, do you think these recent events are what will be the ultimate trigger here? the initial speculation that the conventions would be taking place around the time of the unrest made sense at the time but I’m beginning to fear we are going to be in a police state slowly being stripped of more and more until the masses say enough is enough, 3 months time seems about right to me […]

ANSWER: Riots are beginning in different places and are being reported by clients, not the press. The youth is protesting against the virus restrictions that the medical industry only looks at from their perspective without considering the social or economic consequences. Sure, if we all distance ourselves, stay home, and shut down the world economy, we can beat the common cold. But how will people eat? Who grows the food? Who distributes it? I find it very arrogant for claimed medical professionals and organizations to argue for the world to be quarantined. What happens when they get their statement on their pension fund and see how much they have lost because of this position?

The riots that are being reported are accompanied by the view that “this is an old people’s disease” not impacting the youth. The Spring Breakers are not staying home, even in the USA. It is hard to say what impact this has on civil unrest. In Florida, they have closed the beaches as of 12 tonight. Civil unrest is rising because of discontent to start with. There are factions already forming, suggesting they write in Bernie’s name in the November election. They are starting “never Biden” (#NeverBiden) movements. We may see the split in the Democratic Party because of the discontent that began BEFORE the virus scare. The computer forecasts the trend, not the fundamentals.

Even Italy, which has an aging population, has confirmed that 99% of those who have died from the virus had other illnesses. Unbiased medical professionals make it clear that the actual cause of death is not the virus alone – it is complications.

Is the Virus Being Used to Usher-In a Police State in Different Parts of the World?

Posted Mar 21, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Dear Mr Armstrong NOW in Italy – use of drones by municipalities to CONTROL citizen and their movements – you are allowed to exit from home only for go to supermarkets, chemistry, or walk with yr dog. Police could stop you n check and if you are out of yr home for a walk, they bring you in prison, you will have a quick judgment and to pay 300 euro, you will have a penal note and you will no more have the possibility to try to work in government or politic, you are permanently …signaled (as Scarlett letter!!) – you can stay at max 200meters from home – quarantine will be extended from 3rd April (present expected time to finish quarantine) till end of April-schools closed until easter

WE ARE UNDER DICTATORSHIP! ECONOMY DESTROYED, SOCIAL TISSUE DESTROYED, FREEDOM CANCELLED!! All in 2 weeks’ time! Please… WHAT COULD WE DO, NOW?!!

ANSWER: I really do not know. There is a major movement toward authoritarianism. Perhaps because they know the system is collapsing and they are using this as the excuse. I had an exchange with a doctor who said they need the quarantine and I am spreading dangerous information. I asked him to look at his pension funds. Are any left? He went silent. There is something wrong here. You do not destroy the world economy on this magnitude to even save 25,000 lives. Even if 40% of the population got this, with a death rate which is less than 3% (8% among the elderly), it does not warrant this economic destruction. They are wiping out small businesses, countless people have lost their jobs, others their entire pension fund, and there is no putting this back together again as nothing happened. This is a intentional economic destruction that is being carried out for an undisclosed purpose.

There is another agenda going on and they have even all the conspiracy people yelling this virus is understated and it will be exponential when that has not been the evidence in China or even Italy. Very curious what is the end objective here. How many small business will be wiped out. Countless jobs are being destroyed. I am looking at who is calling us in and who is not. Those who are not do not need help and are not in a state of panic for a reason.

Doctors Writing In Talking they are Being Directed from Above

Posted Mar 21, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
There is a coordinated effort from the very top of the medical profession to direct doctors to shut down which seems to be a very questionable overreaction. We have many clients who are doctors who are free thinkers and are questioning what is going on. One has written in:

Marty,

Please understand that most doctors do not view this pandemic from a stance of arrogance. It is rather that most doctors today are simply ignorant of real scientific medicine. They are followers, doing as they are told from their administrators, and elected leaders of the various medical societies, who are just as ignorant of the potential threat.

Many doctors today do not know how to evaluate tests, or stratify risk. They simply look at the result and accept it. They accept whatever is written in the journals, without thinking critically about the matter.

Now, there does seem to be something unusual going on at the apex of the medical decision-making pyramid, but I don’t know where it originates.

Is it Even Possible to Predict a 10-Year Plan?

Posted Mar 21, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
[…] I would never have imagined even if I was a fiction novelist that something like this absurd could undermine the world economy without (1) ever firing a shot and (2) less than 20,000 people have died from a flu-like virus. If I had written such a novel using this plot, I doubt anyone would have published it. It just sounds too stupid. Rest assured. I am running every model. It will take Socrates to call this one. Anything else is just human opinion, which at this stage in the game, is highly dangerous for I have been in this game for about 50 years and I have never witnessed a crash with no fundamental logic at all.

The 1987 Crash, at least the rumors were that the president was assassinated or Russia just invaded Europe and communications were down. But those were panic events that lasted a day. This is different. This is being orchestrated as if it were a plot to destroy the economy and most heads of state are not in the loop.

This is very strange. There is no evidence that this is even a major threat. It is a pandemic but nowhere near a far more serious epidemic (proportion of population v only geographic) It has subsided in China and we have staff there on the ground. We have staff strategically placed around the world so we have our own boots on the ground to rely on for eye-witness accounts – not media. It’s going crazy in Berlin where we also have staff. The panic level is absurd. They have people thinking if they contract it, they die.

There is a grab for power here which is disproportionate to the evidence. We are cascading toward a virtual dictatorship in Europe particularly. Even austerity has been abandoned which would have been impossible without this type of panic. That may be one covert objective.

This is better than any plot for a James Bond movie because nobody would have believed that you could scare the hell out of the world so easily.

Is This a Plot To Cover-up Collapse of Keynesian Economics?

Posted Mar 21, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
There is clearly some agenda, but it has originated in Europe from what I have been able to track. It is perhaps a convenient event to cover-up the collapse of Keynesianism for there is absolutely NOTHING the ECB can do. As I laid out in Manipulating the World Economy, this was going to take a political solution. The real issue here is perhaps this has been whipped up into a panic in order to bring in that political change and to push Europe into the federalized state. It just begins to smell like a very convenient outcome.

I was told – Read your Own Book!

Posted Mar 21, 2020 by Martin Armstrong I had a very interesting conversation about what appears to be a grab for power with someone high up. I was told: Read tour own book! I concluded in the Manipulating the World Economy that the central banks lost all power and the solution would require political action and reform. The very issues I made clear would need to change have just changed – Germany surrenders austerity. However, I was pessimistic that such reform would be possible because of the political polarization. The answer appears to be creating a James Bond plot to save the world.

There are numerous political people who sold their stocks on insider information in the USA and Europe. I have detailed information about very high-level elites in Europe who were tipped off as well it appears for they also sold on the ECM turning point and it was not because they followed the ECM. It is curious that the sales took place at the ECM +- 2 days. They were not our clients. This does make me wonder if someone else used the ECM to target when to bring this operation into play.

We still have people justifying these powers arguing the virus will take off exponentially as if we will all die. It is this very type of scare-mongering which is providing the cover for the greatest political power grab in human history. This comes directly from the political playbook that has been around for thousands of years. The flight to quality is simply cash. Even the bonds had fallen as well as gold. This is the most drastic flight to quality ever. Normally, sell stocks run to bonds. This time they are liquidating everything.

Legislation to Force Testing or Bar you From the Public

Posted Mar 22, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
MEHPA stands for Model State Emergency Health Powers Act. It is a draft of model legislation to increase state powers to respond to bio-terrorism or other outbreaks of disease that the Centers for Disease Control and others want the states to pass into law. Although such legislation is needed, the current draft of the Model Act, unfortunately, is written in a way that doesn’t adequately protect citizens against the misuse of the tremendous powers that it would grant in an emergency.

Denmark rushed through a bill that allows them to enlist the police in forced testing, treatment, and punishment relating to the coronavirus. You can be punished for refusing to be tested, and you can be forcibly vaccinated. You can be refused access to supermarkets, shops, public transport, etc. unless you are tested.

Sanity in the Middle of Chaos – Why Italy Has More Deaths than China

Posted Mar 22, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
COMMENT: Marty, I am a physician in Ohio. Long time blog reader and pro subscriber since WEC in Orlando 2019. I am amazed at the groupthink that has “infected” medicine just like it has destroyed social science, climate change discussions, politics, etc. It is very destructive. I want to share with your readers some real science around Italy and infectious disease […]

REPLY: We have a lot of doctors attending WEC and reading the blog. I have been getting a lot of emails questioning the level of hysteria that has been created among the medical profession. My personal opinion is this has been created by the herd mentality and is the same as Stanley Milgram’s study in his Obedience to Authority. I highly recommend this book if you now have nowhere to go.

We instinctively have the same herd instincts. One zebra thinks it sees a lion and starts to run. The entire herd begins to run because everybody else is running. There may have been a threat, and then again there may have been nothing.

Thank you for your contribution. The study showed that 68,000 Italians die from the flu over four seasons (17,000 per year on average) and it attacks the excessive elderly, of which Italy has an abundance. For those who are unaware, the further south you go in Italy and it is very common to see people in their mid 90s+. Italy has the oldest population in Europe, with about 23% of residents 65 or older, according to The New York Times. The median age in the country is 47.3, compared with 38.3 in the United States, the Times reported. Many of Italy’s deaths have been among people in their 80s, and 90s, a population known to be more susceptible to severe complications from COVID-19 and the general annual influenza.

This is why the death toll in Italy exceeded that of China. They have one of the oldest populations in the world.

Why Confiscate Gold if it is Such a Small Part of the Financial System?

Posted Mar 22, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: […] If gold market is a low percentage of the whole market, what does this measure allow to collect significant capital?

ANSWER: This is not about how much it would collect. They are seeking to eliminate ANY means of circumventing their negative interest rate policy. They believe that the only reason their Quantitative Easing has failed is that people were hoarding cash and gold outside the banking system. Instead of looking at the problem with Keynesian Economics, they NEVER assume they are the problem – it is always the people.

People have been hoarding gold jewelry. Italy began to weigh the gold jewelry you were wearing when you left the country. I do not believe this will be successful. That is not the point. It is solely intended to force everyone into government digital currencies. Then they can just tax whatever they desire.

The excuse for this quarantine is that there will not be enough hospital beds for everyone. The answer is what the Chinese did, constructed emergency hospitals in days. You dod NOT shut down the entire economy like this. People are losing jobs and small businesses will close forever. The damage is far greater than what they pretend to be preventing. Either they are sublimely STUPID, or there is another agenda here.

Europe was on the edge of collapse. They have has negative interest rates since 2014. The central bank could do NOTHING. I explained that there had to be political reform. They are actually doing what I said would have to happen, but sheer force. Europe is losing its freedoms and they will NEVER return.

Meanwhile, we have a major deleveraging process underway. Many Hedge Funds have traded with a fundamental view that defeats the very purpose of a hedge fund if it is based upon just opinion. As the Hedge Funds puke all over the street, the margins rise which have a tendency of not just deleveraging the system but forcing further liquidations. This is the stark reality we are facing this coming week further liquidations. Some funds may be forced to shut down based upon withdrawals by the end of the quarter.

There is no question we will be looking at the economic numbers that will reflect depression-like economic data because this is a contrived economic collapse which is totally unjustified. Jobless claims are going to skyrocket for people MUST be fired in order to collect unemployment. I have been recommending this to our business clients to help their employees. The economic damage inflicted on the economy is going to be massive. Any recovery will be hard to imagine if this lasts another two weeks.

TAX CRS Reporting & Why The European Flight to the Dollar

Posted Mar 22, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: […] To those of us in the eurozone who own physical gold, what would you suggest to do?

ANSWER: I believe you may start to see this idea floated in the press next week. It will probably be voluntary at first. I do not believe they will outlaw it on the first go. Longer-term, it just becomes very difficult. The Swiss began numbered accounts because Hitler outlawed having any account in a foreign country. The Swiss now ask the EU how high should the jump. They are no longer the safe haven they once were. So Swiss accounts will no longer be an option. The only option is the USA since it is not part of their reporting agreement.

Even New Zealand is part of the order where banks must report $10,000 in cash transactions. Australia was making it a criminal act to pay for anything in $10,000 in cash. The Common Reporting Standard (CRS) is an information standard for the automatic exchange of tax and financial information on a global level. It was put together by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) back in 2014. Its purpose was to hunt down tax evasion primarily for the European Union. They took the concept from the US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), which imposed liabilities on foreign institutions if they did not report what Americans were doing outside the country.

The legal basis of the CRS is the Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters. As of 2016, 83 countries had signed an agreement to implement it. First reporting took place in September 2017. The CRS has many loopholes for countries have to sign the agreement. This has omitted the United States as well as most developing countries. Note that countries that are included are China, Singapore, Switzerland, most tax havens and of course Australian/New Zealand as well as Canada.

Is Anthony Fauci the Destroyer of Worlds?

Posted Mar 22, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: […] When do you foresee this chaos to end? People are afraid and are acting really crazy, wearing masks, latex gloves and keeping a distance between each other as though everyone has leprosy. Stores like Trader Joe’s are regulating shoppers to a minimum of 30 people, while a huge line forms outside of their store. When shopping, the workers all have latex gloves, and continuously use antibiotic soap. We cannot even stand in front of a register nor hand the cashier money. They expect you to place your bills on the counter and slide it to them. Then they throw the recipe in your grocery bags. The world has gone mad! Ohio has implemented shelter in place (Stay Home) order to combat COVID-19 going into effect Monday at 11:59 pm and scheduled to last until April 6.

ANSWER: The computer has been projecting the two target weeks of March 23rd and April 6th since the start of the year. I believe we then see is the dust settles. But Anthony Fauci will go down in history as the Destroyer of Worlds. I have never in my long career ever witnessed such absurdity as this man has created. Yes, it is true if we all stayed at home we can beat the common cold. For this guy to only look at his field and say that is the solution is beyond comprehension. He is clearly a LINEAR THINKER and the press has been a coconspirator because they have ONLY been interested in selling advertising by hyping this to insane levels but they are foolishly destroying the very people who advertise. The medical profession which just follows orders is unknowingly losing their pension money. Some states may even use this to justify seizure private pensions for the people’s own good.

I have spoken to a fairly large company that is still not in what we would classify as “big business” and the solution that they have come to is they will stop paying bills to preserve cash. Others have said where they had been looking at reducing high paying jobs easing them out over the next year, they have brought that forward and are using this crisis as the excuse. These decrees that small business must shut down, has anybody bothered to decree that their rents must also be suspended?

Anthony Fauci has created a Great Depression and unemployment will jump from the lowest since the 1960s and may retest the Great Depression high of 20%. There was a forecast that unemployment would retest the lows going into 2019 and then rise into the 2023 period where it could be a slingshot up to retest the Great Depression highs. It has always been my job to just report what the computer projects. Some people try to challenge me on a personal level. You cannot fight the message, so attack the messenger. I have said every time that I second guess the models, I am the one who is wrong. This was one such forecast I was uncertain about. I could not see fundamentally how the economy could collapse so fast. But low and behold, fate has given us Anthony Fauci which I believe will have destroyed more businesses and wiped out more jobs than any economic event historically surpassing the Great Depression and war.

  • The US Congress is still debating its relief bill. They have no idea what is unfolding.

  • Illiquidity is exploding and hedge funds puke their guts out all over the street. Even some bond funds in Europe and Sweden, as well as Denmark, have suspended all redemptions.

  • The panic to the US dollar has been massive. This will only undermine emerging market debt. The Fed can try to inject dollars, but this will have no effect since the demand far exceeds the supply.

  • The fear factor the medical industry has created over Covid19 is unbelievable where 13% of Americans think they are infected. There is now little doubt that this fear factor has overwhelmed the markets and the economy. Trump has delegated the response to the States, which may be a mistake. Some states are overreacting and many have started to shut down their economies ordering people to stay home into the week of April 6th. Universities have switched to online and many may have just closed for the year. German chancellor Angela Merkel is in quarantine as in US Senator Rand Paul. A member of the Vice President’s team tested positive but not the Vice President.

  • There still remains the risk that Europe may close its financial markets as they did in World War I. There remains also the risk that they will declare a BANK HOLIDAY and they are still looking at using the crisis to cancel all paper currency.

I do not see where Fauci’s recommendations have been warranted. This may be a little more aggressive than the flu, but we are still not talking about it reaching an epidemic. It has already subsided in China and South Korea. My discussions with medical doctors in Italy suggest that nobody has died from this virus alone. They have some precondition and then the complications lead to death when severe. This is not the Black Plague.

We do Have to Get Beyond the CDC

Posted Mar 23, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
[…] The CDC does not shut down the entire economy for the flu which is far worse according to the CDC itself. The CDC and John Hopkins have destroyed the economy from which another 2 weeks of this will have wiped out far more jobs as a percent of the workforce than the Great Depression. These people are HIGHLY dangerous. There is such a tiny percent of the deaths in Italy that there were no known prior conditions – less than 1%. You do not shut down the world economy for this type of event. At best, to require people with prior conditions to self-quarantine. The bulk of this group is not employed anyhow.

Less Than 15,000 People Have Died from COVID with Other Causes under 55

Posted Sep 4, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
There has been a lot of turmoil about just how many people have died from COVID. The problem stems from the fact that they have other diseases and perhaps COVID has pushed them over the edge. Of those under 55, only 14,047 people have died WITH COVID but with other complications according to the CDC Table #3. Twitter and everyone else is removing comments quoting the CDC that only: “For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned.” They are trying to keep the fear factor going […]

CDC Said there Have Been More Suicides Than Death by COVID-19

Posted Sep 6, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
The Director of the CDC has come out and bluntly stated that there have been far more deaths from suicides and drug overdoses than from COVID-19. The leftist media will no doubt claim the CDC is wrong. The social media firms will scrub any mention that this COVID has been a hoax […] Unemployment globally has now exceeded 300 million people. In the United States, most people lose their jobs and they also lose their healthcare. None of these Marxist media organizations from the New York Times, Washington Post, and CNN who lead the way, will ever take responsibility nor will they ever stop in their attempt to constant destroy the economy on the hopes that no president is reelected during an economic decline […] The Director of the CDC said: “But there has been another cost that we’ve seen, particularly in high schools.” Mr. Redfield continued: “We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID. We’re seeing far greater deaths from drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing the deaths from COVID. So this is why I keep coming back for the overall social being of individuals, is let’s all work together and find out how we can find common ground to get these schools open in a way that people are comfortable and their safe.” […]

Anti-Semitism, Christianity, Confiscating Assets, Banking Conspiracies & Capitalism

Posted Mar 23, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: You seem to always be against conspiracy theories except that it always comes down to government against the people. Why are most of the bankers Jewish? Do you have an explanation for that?

ANSWER: If you simply knew your history you would realize that both the Catholics and the Arabs maintained it was against their religion to take advantage of someone else in their time of need to lend them money and demand interest – hence usury. Christian bankers did not emerge until the Protestant Reformation when they broke with the Catholic Church and no longer worried about being excommunicated. Previous, the Christians would factor in interest like the Europeans for with sales taxes by calling them VAT. The consumer in Europe has no idea how much of the price is taxes whereas in America we always say – plus tax. So the clever incorporation of interest applied by merchants was really just installment type of loans – not outright cash for interest. That is the segment where the Jews had the monopoly of actually lending money for interest – hence Merchant Banking v Jewish Bankers.

Christians would sell you something and it was $10 say for cash. If you needed time, they priced it at say $12. As long as they included it in the price like a VAT, then they could charge interest by calling it something else. The Arabs would do the same. However, the Jews did not have that religious restriction so they became the first bankers after the Dark Age. They were also typically the captains of ships because it was not a sin to use mathematics. Math was seen as a devil art so they always needed the Jew to figure out how to sail.

The entire anti-Semitism would rise in conjunction with the business cycle post-Dark Age. Why? Because the Jews were the bankers and the economy turned down, suddenly the debtor discovered the banker was Jewish and they used that excuse not to pay. Just look at the economics and you will discover how anti-Semitism rises. The Jews were banished from England because they lent money to King Edward I (1272-1307) in his war against Philip IV (1268-1314). When Edward could not repay the Jewish bankers, he suddenly discovered they were Jewish. He banishes them from Edland and confiscated all real property. Philip IV seized the Catholic Church, installed a French Pope and moved it to Avignon. He then confiscated all the wealth of the Knights Templars which were the first international bankers. When Napoleon needed money, he confiscated the property of the Catholic Church as was the case with Henry VIII of England.

Some will have difficulty with my statement that historically the Jews were not persecuted for their religion as were the Christians until Hitler. It was always involving money even in the Spanish Inquisitions which drove the Jews and Arabs out of Spain confiscating their property. The Jews then fled and settled in Amsterdam where they began both insurance and the first stock exchanges. It is debatable to what extent Hitler was really against Jews for being Jews. He confiscated all their property which included stores and banks. Kristallnacht was Nove 9-10, 1938 when they attacked and looted the Jewish storekeepers.

When Hitler killed the Jews, he took even the gold out of their teeth. So there was clearly still an element of confiscating assets to fund his new empire. He did the same to the Gypsies (considered pejorative), who were an ethnic group of traditionally itinerant people who originated in northern India but lived in modern times principally in Europe. The question some have debated was if the Jews had not been the bankers and shopkeepers, who there have been the rise of anti-Semitism? Today, there are people who are anti-Semitists simply reliving the old propaganda that was used to justify the confiscation of their assets for profit.

Pre-Dark Ages, the Romans really allowed the freedom of religion. The destruction of the Jewish Temple by Vespasian had nothing to do with religion. Upon the death of Nero, the Jews revolted and assumed that the lack of an heir meant that was their shot to seek independence from Rome. The general Vespasian had to make an example of the Jews, not for religion, but if he did not crush their rebellion, then all the other provinces would do the same and the Empire would have been lost. The relief showing the Romans carrying the spoils of Judaea on the Arch of Titus was a warning to the rest of the provinces not to seek separatism.

The Christians were persecuted when the economy turned down and barbarians were invading under the theory that the gods were angry about the Christians who refused to worship them. Eventually, Constantine set the empire on to the road of Christianity I would argue because it was profitable. He was then justified to confiscate the assets of the pagans. Constantine forbade the Jewish practice of stoning converts to Christianity and ordered Jews to stop circumcising their Christian slaves. He also made it unlawful for Christians to convert to Judaism. His son, Constans (337-350AD), outlawed intermarriage between Jews and Christians. Otherwise, the emperors left the Jews alone. They retained full rights as citizens, including the right to worship freely.

By the end of the 4th century, the relations between the Christians and Jews were tolerable and stable for the most part and the Roman Empire was over­whelmingly Christian. In 392AD Emperor Theodosius I (379­-395AD) closed the last of the pagan temples, making Christianity the official religion of the empire. Neverthe­less, Theodosius continued the policy of toleration toward the Jews. In 393AD he declared attacks on synagogues to be a major offense. In the Theodosian Legal Code, Christians were also instructed not to have intimate or personal intercourse with Jews, which might lead to intermarriage. This law mirrored similar Jew­ish restrictions against fraternization with non-Jews. Never­theless, the code did uphold the rights and citizenship of all Jews and protected existing synagogues.

As the world was entering the Dark Ages, Pope Gregory I (590-604) spelled out Catholic Church policy toward the Jews in his decree Sicut Iudaeis Non, which was a synthesis of Roman law and the philoso­phies of St. Paul and St. Augustine. Pope Gregory wrote, “Just as the Jews should not in their synagogues be free to do any­thing not permitted by law, so also in those things granted them they should have no infringement of their rights.”

By the ninth century, St. Agobard, the archbishop of Lyons, wrote, “Since they dwell among us, we ought not to be malignant to them, nor should we threaten their lives, safety, or property. Let us observe the conven­tion ordained by the Church, which is ex­plicit in defining how we must be at once cau­tious but humane in our dealings with them.” Nevertheless, St. Agobard strongly objected to the Jewish policies of Emperor Louis the Pious. He was particu­larly upset that the emperor had forbidden slaves owned by Jews to be baptized. Since bap­tism required the man­umission of the slave, this had the effect of depriving the Jews of their property.

Martin Luther (1483–1546) on October 31, 1517, wrote to Bishop Albrecht von Brandenburg, protesting against the sale of indulgences that were being created to raise money to build St Peters in Rome. This became known as the Ninety-five Theses. Luther really had no intention of confronting the church but saw his disputation as a scholarly objection. In Thesis 86, Luther asked: “Why does the pope, whose wealth today is greater than the wealth of the richest Crassus, build the basilica of St. Peter with the money of poor believers rather than with his own money?”

Although Luther had hoped to spur renewal from within the church, in 1521 he was summoned before the Diet of Worms and excommunicated. He was given shelter and support by Friedrich III, elector of Saxony. It was Friedrich who funded the Protestant Reformation for power purposes, not religion. He used Luther and had him translate the Bible into German and continued his output of vernacular pamphlets.

Frederick III sought constitutional reform of the Holy Roman Empire and protected Martin Luther after Luther was placed under the imperial ban in 1521. Frederick allied himself with Berthold, Archbishop of Henneberg, to promote imperial reforms that would increase the power of the nobles at the expense of the Holy Roman emperor. In 1500 he became president of the Reichsregiment (Imperial Governing Council), which, however, because of lack of funds was soon disbanded. He was instrumental in securing the election of the emperor Charles V in 1519 after refusing the crown himself. Hence, his protection of Luther had nothing to do with reforming the Church, but his thirst for political power.

Frederick appointed Luther and his colleague Philipp Melanchthon to the University of Wittenberg and refused to carry out a papal bull against Luther in 1520. After the ban was imposed on Luther the next year, Frederick welcomed him to the Wartburg, where Luther translated the Bible into German. Frederick championed the German peasant’s revolt in 1524, who was inspired in part by Luther’s empowering “priesthood of all believers.” However, it was Thomas Müntzer (c. 1489 – 1525) a German preacher who became a radical theologian of the early Reformation that inspired the revolt. He opposed both Martin Luther and the Roman Catholic Church. He took this religious position and transformed it into open defiance of late-feudal authority in central Germany, which became the German Peasants’ War. He was eventually captured, tortured, and executed.

By the Reformation’s end, Lutheranism had become the state religion throughout much of Germany, Scandinavia, and the Baltics. This was all about economic power. The Holy Roman Empire was a feudal monarchy that encompassed present-day Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, the Czech and Slovak Republics, as well as parts of eastern France, northern Italy, Slovenia, and western Poland at the start of the early modern centuries. Therefore, Frederick III was supporting Luther in what we would call today a rise of state rights against federalism.

While many simply prefer to look at this purely from a religious perspective, the manipulation of the Papacy by stacking the cardinals and inserting the political appointees by kings was the standard operating procedure. This level of political corruption affected all of Europe. Even Henry VIII (1509-1547) of England had been a devout Catholic and even earned the title from the Pope of being a Defender of the Faith. Nevertheless, Henry knew that the Papacy was political. The attempt to divorce Catherine of Aragon for her failure to produce a male heir was denied by the Pope. However, one must look just a bit deeper. Catherine was a family member of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor (1519-1556) and King of Spain (1516-1556). It was Charles V who invaded Italy and Rome in 1527 just after the German Peasant Revolt taking the last Medici Pope Clement VII (1523-1534) prisoner. There was no possible way the Pope would grant Henry’s divorce against Charles V’s desires. Hence, Henry VIII was denied his divorce based on politics – not religion.

The Papacy had become a political toy ever since the French seizure in 1305. Even after the Papacy returned to Italy, then the Borgia family obviously saw the advantage of seizing the Papacy as demonstrated by the French. Thus, the first Boria Pope became Calixtus III (1455-1458). The Medici saw the same seat of political power in the Papacy and installed Leo X-(1513-1521) and Clement VII (1523-1534). Therefore, we are not looking at truly holy men. We are looking at a period of extreme political machinations by banking families.

Despite the fact that Henry the VIII has captured the headlines of history for appearing to be the first monarch to seize the Catholic Church to fund his chronic spending reflected in the debasement of his coinage, the trend actually began in Scandinavia where it was profitable to adopt the Protestant Reformation. Denmark was in a fiscal crisis where their mismanagement of the economy and the “Count’s War” saw the throne of Denmark went to Christian III. In 1536 a meeting of the Diet then gave their approval to confiscate the church property in order to reduce the deficit created by the cost of the war. The official decree was that the “bishop’s properties should come under the crown and for their protection so that the people will not be so frequently taxed.” The confiscation of property in Denmark led to revenues of the crown jumping by 300% for the period of 1533 to 1574.

Sweden had also confiscated all the monasteries between 1522-1523 to fund the cost of the war by Gustavus Vasa in his war against Christian II. Where the earliest Swedes, the Svear, had conquered the southern people then known as the Gotar during the 6th Century. The region was divided into small kingdoms where the Swedes had joined with other Norseman in Viking raids during the 7th into the 11th Centuries.

During the 10th Century, the Swedes began to become traders rather than just plundering and pillage. A trading empire stretched well into Russia and down into the Black Sea. Sweden was introduced to Christianity by St. Ansgar in 829AD, but it took until the 12th Century before the whole region became Christian during the reign of Eric IX who also conquered Finland. The Swedes were often at war with Denmark and Norway. The monarchies of Sweden and Norway were merged in 1319 by Magnus VII and in 1397, Queen Margaret created the Kalmar Union that united Sweden, Denmark, and Norway under a single monarchy. It was then about 112 years when the throne had gone to the Danish Christian II. To prevent the throne from ever returning to Sweden, he had the Swedish nobility murdered in Stockholm. This led to an uprising led by Gustavus where the confiscation of church property paid for the war in the same manner as Constantine The Great’s plunder of the pagan temples. Gustavus then founded the new Swedish monarchy and Catholicism was banned in 1604.

The monasteries were not actually church land per se. They were not funded by the church but were often small groups forming a monastery with their own money or upon the donated lands upon the death of some Christian seeking to make amends with God. Thus, when Gustavus was crowned in 1528, the oath he took at his coronation omitted any mention of defending the church and its rights. Sweden had adopted formally Luther’s philosophy. The monasteries throughout Sweden had occupied nearly 21% of all land. It was a sizable chunk of property and its value provided great incentive for those in power to support the Protestant Reformation.

The confiscation of church property in Germany was more gradual. In 1533, Philip of Hesse used the money from Church land to fund projects for the people, rather than pay for war debts. He built the University at Marburg and hospitals. It appears, at least Germany was a real reform rather than monarchs lining their pockets. Nevertheless, what people usually misunderstand is that monasteries were really private property which was not owned by the Church.

During the Protestant Reformation, there was one German banker named Jakob Fugger (1459-1525) of Augsburg who wielded significant influence during the 1500s that led to the fundamental transformation of Christianity by the reform movement. Fugger amassed a great fortune as a merchant who began to engage in credit and banking. Augsburg, located in Bavaria, was a “free city” that answered to no feudal overload. This status, combined with its strategic location being the trade route between Italy and the Low Countries in addition to being close to the great silver and copper mines of central Europe, lent to the rise of the Fugger dynasty.

The Fuggers emerged as the leading Augsburg merchant-banker, who then provided loans to local rulers secured with the produce of their mines. Eventually, by 1525, the Joachimsthaler of the Kingdom of Bohemia was the first thaler. The obverse side pictured St Joachim. It was this silver which became the leading currency in Europe and the name origin of the dollar. Fugger had no regard for religion so he pursued business based entirely on profit. They say at the time of his death in 1525, Jacob was worth in cash almost 2% of the value of the entire European economic output. He may have been the second richest man in history behind the Roman Emperor Augustus (27BC-14AD). He was the first truly documented millionaire, in thalers. Yet Jacob had devised perhaps the first modern news service which others would imitate. This was a means by which Jacob devised a way to ensure he had important information before his rivals which predated newspapers by about five decades.

Most people have heard of the Rothschilds and the legend that they made money from the news of Waterloo before anyone else. This all came from Fugger who not only received business news from his correspondents but also sensationalist and gossip news as well. It is evident in the correspondence of Fugger with his network that fiction and fact were both significant parts of early news publications. It was during this period of the 16th century Germany where people began to imitate Fugger with subscription-based, handwritten news. Those who subscribed to these publications were generally low-level government officials and also merchants seeking business advantages. They could afford to pay for a subscription, which was still expensive for the time.

Avvisi, reporti, gazzette, ragguagli, nouvelles, advis, corantos, courantes, zeitungen, were the fastest and most efficient means by which military and political news could be circulated. From the middle of the 16th-century newsletter writers in Italy especially, called menanti, reportisti, or gazzettieri, set up news services. By this time postal services in various forms had developed over all of Europe which allowed for newsletters to flourish and began in Venice. They were issued on single sheets, folded to form four pages, and issued on a weekly schedule. These publications reached a larger audience than handwritten news had in early Rome. Their format and appearance at regular intervals were two major influences on the newspaper as we know it today. The idea of a weekly, handwritten newssheet went from Italy to Germany and then to Holland. Eventually, the first newspaper also appeared in Germany in 1605 and was published by Johann Carolus (1575−1634) called Relation following the information gathering set in motion by Fugger.

It was Fugger who set in motion the Protestant Reformation because of his scheme to demand collateral for a loan to craft indulgences. Albrecht of Hohenzollern turned to him for a loan to fill the opening for the Archbishop of Mainz. It was Albrecht who came up with an idea that an “indulgence” from the pope would absolve people of their sins and this scheme he pledged as collateral for a loan from Fugger. It has been argued that Pope Leo X (1475–1521) wanted 34,000 gold florins to help pay for expensive upgrades to St. Peter’s Basilica. It was Pope Leo X who thereby authorized Fugger’s scheme to sell indulgences that would provide the collateral for Fugger. But the plot thickens. Pope Leo X was no holy man of God. He just so happened to be the second son of Lorenzo de’ Medici, banker, and ruler of the Florentine Republic and was elevated to the cardinalate in 1489 to control the Church and then, like Goldman Sachs installs its people in the US Treasury or central banks around the world, following the death of Pope Julius II, the Medici seized the Papacy installing Leo X to rule the Church for lucrative business deals. The sale of indulgences was thus a scheme that inspired the monetary lust of two banking houses. The money raised by the sale of indulgences was split 50/50, between the Fuggar and the Medici Pope.

This brings us to the reformer named Martin Luther who became disgusted by the profitability and con job of the sale of indulgences from the Fuggers & Medici bankers under the auspices of the Catholic Church. This was not so different from the outrage against the bankers, especially Goldman Sachs, of modern times. Instead of using the Catholic Church as the cover for the scheme, they have used government. Nevertheless, to this day, people only blame the Catholic Church for corruption and indulgences and have never looked just beyond the headline. When the Church was free of the Medici as Goldman Sachs has seized undue influence in government, the Council of Trent condemned “all base gain for securing indulgences” in 1563, and Pope Pius V (1504-1572) abolished the sale of indulgences in 1567. He was later declared to be a saint for his reforms following the purge of the Medici control. Ethics has always been a problem between the bankers who fly close to the flame of power for the sake of profits.

The conspiracy of bankers to control governments, and at the time the Catholic Church ruled much of Italy as the Papal States, has been something that is by no means confined to Jewish Bankers. Much of that conspiracy has been spread from Germany when it was used to seize the banks under Hitler. That spread to Jewish businesses and then all the Jews. It has certainly been maintained because people point to Goldman Sachs and the heads of many New York banks who are Jewish.

Nevertheless, my investigation of governments and bankers reveals that there is no confining the plots to just Jewish bankers. As I have shown, the entire conspiracy to create indulgences that fueled the Protestant Reformation was the brainchild of Christians – not Jews. Moreover, the same unfounded conspiracies against the Catholic Church omit the fact that the Papacy fell into the hands of the bankers and upon the death of the Medici Pope Leo X, came Saint Pope Pius V who outlawed the sale of indulgences which had been the scheme of the two leading banking houses in Europe.

To this day, people hate Catholics and bring up this plot to justify their hatred as they do against the Jews and bankers. Sometimes we have to look a little deeper before we reach the truth. The Protestant Reformation used Luther as the scapegoat to free the practice of lending money for interest. While some argue that the first stage of capitalism came about during the 17th century when merchants gradually became more involved in the production of goods by supplying materials and paying wages. The merchant made the transition to capitalism by making profits from the ownership and control of the means of production. This misses the point of money-lending which came first. A Catholic could not lend money for interest without fear of being excommunicated. The Protestant Reformation is where we draw the line with capitalism for there and then the Christians seized control of banking.

What Happens to the Money Politicians Raise After they Drop Out?

Posted Mar 23, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: What happens to the money politicians raise and then they drop out? Do they keep it?

ANSWER: Actually, they use to pocket it, tax-free of course. Did you ever wonder why CEOs of Goldman Sachs take high ranking positions and then leave? Due to the conflict of interest laws, they must sell their stock to take the job. Because they MUST sell their stock, it is tax-free.

With respect to politicians, they’ll often put their leftover funds toward their next race. If they choose not to run, they have to abide by the same FEC rules. However, prior to 1993, U.S. Representatives who took office before January 8, 1980, were allowed to keep any leftover campaign cash when they retired. Politicians were also spending millions in campaign donations on personal items like clothing, jewelry, artwork, personal travel, and dry cleaning. These corrupt practices of Congress were exposed so they passed a law negating this custom for the House; the Senate already had provisions in place so this wouldn’t happen.

Nevertheless, politicians usually find a way to make that cash still work for themselves often under state laws, which differ significantly from federal rules. For example, Chris Christie won reelection as New Jersey’s governor in 2014. He then used the excess money to cover the legal fees racked up during the Bridgegate scandal.

The FEC guide also tells us the money could be refunded to donors, spent on gifts (or “donations of nominal value”) to non-family members, moving expenses after leaving office, home security for officeholders, and work-related “travel expenses for a federal officeholder and his or her accompanying spouse and children,” although a 2007 law puts some restrictions on that. Interestingly, campaign cash can also be used prior to the election to pay candidates a salary – but not to incumbents, and it’s capped at the lesser of what they made last year or what the office they’re seeking pays.

Politicians routinely break the rules. There are no criminal penalties for that on their part. Obama was fined the most for taking illegal money than any politician in history. As long as they can claim some justification, they can use the money tax-free.

Is this a Staged Political Coup on a Grand International Level?

Posted Mar 24, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
COMMENT: […] No one has been more spot on before the deluge than you in calling these moves.

Have you ever seen such idiocy in all your life as is on full display today with these politicians jockeying for position, cramming their pet projects into the bailouts and trying to without support for funding while the entire country collapses? Even the Lehman collapse in 2008 looks mild compared to this! Businesses collapses, supply chains broken, small businesses going broke, executive orders coming from Governors now requiring people stay home and wait indefinitely. By the time the dust settles, the financial damage will be beyond measure…i really believe the only reason why they are doing this now is because no statistics are available to measure the collapse in sales, tax receipts, economic activity. Goldman says 24% collapse in GPD, but I really doubt these politicians even grasp what this does to any recovery, thinking there will be a quick snap back recovery is delusional…nothing like this has ever happened, man made, and they think getting funding now to businesses is going to solve the problem they have created….permanent damage has been done not only to our economy but the world since we buy so much from them, travel and spend money there and circulate freely.

I think an economic collapse happening in real time is unprecedented and will surpass that of the 1929 crash…all man made, through inception and bad policy choices and bad advice from academics…

REPLY: This is a photo running around among the Democrats, cheering the destruction of the economy, for they are counting on this to overthrow Trump. But this does not stop there. This is a coordinated effort by the left to also overthrow Merkel and force the capitulation of Germany and its long-held policy against inflation. They have succeeded in breaking the will of Germany as Merkel has thrown in the towel. The Deep State has been trying to overthrow Trump desperately. What the WHO and the CDC have orchestrated is beyond belief.

They have put out these scenarios to justify destroying the economy under the claim there will not be enough beds to help people. China built hospitals to handle it in days. The WHO and CDC have chosen to destroy the economy rather than expand hospital capacity. I am sorry, but no one in their right mind would have done this. I am sorry, but all the information I am getting from direct sources are starting to paint this as a political coup on an international level. The climate change was just running into too much resistance so they needed another approach. Everyone knows I hate conspiracy theories based on just speculation. Even Diane Feinstein and others sold their investments with the turn of the ECM, including bonds! I know of high-level Europeans who did the same.

Why Do Democra[Zy]ts Defend Illegal Aliens Against Americans?

Posted Mar 24, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Marty; Why is Pelosi demanding same-day registration to vote? Is this so they don’t have time to check who they really are?

ANSWER: Yes. Pelosi and the Democrats want to protect illegal aliens and the objective is to allow them to vote. This is an old political dream. I have told how I had the mandate from Hong Kong to try to negotiate with the Australian government that they could buy land and move their sovereignty. I met with the former Prime Minister of Australia Paul Keating. No matter what I offered, I could not strike a deal. I then asked if we could agree on them taking part of the land in the upper left-hand corner of Australian to move in bulk. He rejected that idea as well. I finally asked if this was a racist issue. He, at last, explained that they were fleeing communism so they would vote conservative and upset the balance of power in Australia. Keating was a Labour government.

This is what the Democrats are up to. You have states like New York and California protecting illegal aliens who do not vote or pay taxes. So why are they so determined to issue these people IDs and to try to sneak them in for voting? The Democrats know they are losing. Their solution is to support illegal aliens who will then vote for them against Americans who actually work and pay taxes. This has become a completely deranged political agenda – just win at all costs.

The Democra[Zy]t’s Plot Against Americans

Posted Mar 24, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
The coup that has been waged from the left against the right is an all-out global political war. They succeeded in bringing Germany to its knees and surrender its culture of austerity. Here in the United States, the Democrats have coordinated with these dark forces seeking not only same-day registration to allow illegal aliens to vote and overrule actual working Americans, but tucked in their proposals we find the seeds to cancel US paper dollars as well which is the political agenda in Europe.

The Democrats are trying to use this economic collapse which is increasingly looking like it has been staged by the Deep State & the WHO of the United Nations to further the Marxist agenda because they know the system is collapsing. Therefore, as the markets crash, the Democrats include in their demands for a massive stimulus package the creation of a ‘digital dollar’ and the establishment of ‘digital dollar wallets.’ As I have warned, they will simply outlaw cryptocurrencies and probably take blockchain for themselves. This has been the covert agenda of the IMF for some time now.

Both Speaker Pelosi’s ‘Take Responsibility for Workers and Families Act’ and the ‘Financial Protections and Assistance for America’s Consumers, States, Businesses, and Vulnerable Populations Act (H.R. 6321),’ introduced by Chairwoman Maxine Waters of Financial Services Committee, have now introduced these concepts as a way of delivering the economic stimulus payments to U.S. citizens. Clearly, this would only delay helping people for it would take months to establish such a system. This only furthers the talk behind the curtain that this whole thing has been orchestrated to destroy the economy to overthrow Trump and Germany, and then in the darkest of hours, the people will surrender all remaining rights to be safe.

This plot thickens as it reaks with corruption and a political coup by the left on a grand scale. They have been toasting the market collapse. If anyone wondered why Socrates has projected that China will emerge as the financial capital of the world, I don’t think we have to wonder why much longer.

Trudeau Joins the International Coup?

Posted Mar 24, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
The worldwide plot of the left to effectively overthrow Democracy is alive and well in Canada as well. The emergency bill introduced by Trudeau would grant cabinet sweeping powers to tax and spend without parliamentary approval through the end of 2021. In other words, Trudeau is using this manufactured crisis to eliminate democracy in Canada altogether.

Prime Minister Trudeau addressed Canadians on the Coronavirus manufactured panic on March 23, 2020. Trudeau’s government is planning to grant itself wide-reaching new powers to tax and spend without parliamentary approval. Thirty-two MPs, divided proportionally based on party standing, will be in Ottawa to debate the bill being tabled on today. Like the Democrats in the United States, Trudeau is seeking powers that go well beyond any measure for a short-term crisis which is probably why they have fake research claiming this will last for 18 months when no such virus has done that. Once the powers are seized, the provisions will give a minority government the power to act unilaterally for 21 months. This is clearly a political coup taking place in Canada as well with the shrinking leftist side making a desperate attempt to overrule any democratic process.

The bill will allow Trudeau to impose anything with respect to taxation. Everywhere we look, the left is rising and seeking undemocratic powers in many places throughout the West.

Posted Mar 25, 2020 by Martin Armstrong I have stated many times that Karl Marx killed more people than any religious war and in fact, all wars put together. He was responsible for hundreds of millions of deaths. Yet the left keeps trying to force his theories upon society creating havoc, hatred, and class warfare. They violate even the very Ten Commandments which aside from religion, appears to have been a pearl of respected ancient wisdom we refuse to listen to. Why does the left keep trying to push Marxism upon society? They simply covet what other people have and want to punish others for being more successful.

We have shut down the entire world economy for less than 20,000 deaths worldwide? This is a joke. Either John Hopkins University has deliberately been part of a plot to further Marxism or they are outright ignorant of what they are doing. They have supported the destruction of human rights and liberty advocating you kill the patient to cure the disease. More people die in car crashes annually than this death toll no less the annual flu which kills hundreds of thousands of people. We do not surrender our rights and close the economy for such events. So why this virus?

The red dots of John Hopkins University are outright propaganda. They are not current. They do not disappear with the virus subsiding. Look at China. They are deliberately misleading and make it appear as if whole countries are infected supporting [irrational paleolithic-hindbrain driven panic and fight-or-flight herding instincts that homo sapiens inherited from our paleozoic, ancestral environment] stay at home and marshal law. This is propaganda they have been promoting and we have governments declaring emergency powers to end democratic processes thanks to this misleading graphic which is historical rather than current and the dots may represent just one case, not the entire state.

We are [herded sheepeople] fools for what is taking place. There are dark forces whipping this up into a panic for the sole purpose of creating authoritarian powers because they do understand my models and they are scared of losing power. We have Democrats holding parties calling this the Trump Virus. They are cheering the destruction of the economy just to get rid of Trump. Their hatred of him is deeply concerning for the veneer of civilization has been removed and we stand on the precipice of civil unrest and bloodshed all in the name of Marx. I recently asked a Democrat why do they hate Trump so much. They could not articulate a single act he has done. They simply said presidents shouldn’t Tweet.

Governments can see the Monetary Crisis Cycle coming to destroy their systems. This is the best way for them to fight back. I have warned my concern was what comes AFTER Trump. My deepest fear is the loss of all civil liberties and fools are cheering this on without understanding what they are wishing for.

I am concerned about the future for my posterity. They will NEVER know the world in which I grew up in.

There is a government now who wants to openly use our models to trade. They have one of the top 5 wealth funds in the world. I believe they will open it up to manage money using our models. But I have ZERO interest in returning to funds management. Other countries in Asia have openly admitted they are using “Capital Flow Analysis” which is our model at the central bank level.

Again, I greatly appreciate the trust and confidence. But I prefer to teach you how to fish for a lifetime rather than to feed you for just one day. This is a picture of my backyard. It is my sanctuary from the craziness of the world. I will feed the birds. They know where to get a free meal. That will last only when I am here – not forever. What we face is more serious. We have to learn that the world is not a toy for us to manipulate as they are doing right now to retain power. They will fail for the system they seek is just not sustainable. So I prefer to teach you how to see the world so you can survive rather than manage money like feeding the birds for a day.

Is Bloomberg Behind the John Hopkins University Virus Map that Has Scared the World?

Posted Mar 26, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Some people have wondered who is behind the John Hopkins University map. Is there a political connection or is this just academic incompetence? I believe it clearly warrants investigation. The people behind this graphic should be hauled into the Senate under subpoena. What they have done with a misleading graphic is virtually overthrowing all human rights and every principle of liberty that so many generations have fought for and died. My family fought in every war since the American Revolution. Even Germany has been talking about declaring Emergency Powers for one year. We have others claiming the virus will last 18 months to clearly impact the 2020 elections. The threats to our liberty are far worse than an invasion by China or Russia for that matter.

The red dots of John Hopkins University are outright propaganda and deliberately misleading in my belief. They are not current but historical. They do not disappear with the virus subsiding. Look at China – they make it seem as if the entire country were infected. They are deliberately misleading and make it appear as if whole countries are infected to support stay at home and martial law. This is propaganda on a grand scale that I have never witnessed in my 50 years of experience! John Hopkins University has been promoting the collapse of democracy, justifying the suppression of all freedom and civil liberties. We have governments declaring emergency powers to end democratic processes thanks to this misleading graphic.

The Event201 P[L]andemic Exercise was clearly a bunch of academics who have no sense of anything outside their own field. True, if we all sequester during the winter we could beat the common cold. But they have zero understanding of civilization, no less the economy and that the worth of any currency is the total productive capacity of the people it represents. You do NOT kill the patient to declare your victory in defeating the disease.

There are some who are starting to question if this is a deliberate coup orchestrated by the left on a global scale because all the socialistic systems they have created are collapsing and will be unsustainable come 2021. The strange coincidence is that Michael Bloomberg has donated $1.8 billion to John Hopkins University. That donation amount would naturally result in them asking how high if they were asked to jump.

Michael Bloomberg said he had no problem spending $1 Billion to Defeat Trump. Why does he hate Trump so much? His own press reported: “Bloomberg Will Spend to Beat Trump, Even If He’s Not the Nominee.” Bloomberg’s anti-Trump effort has been personal. He also said that his “organization would work to help Warren or Sanders despite his stated differences with them over a wealth tax and Medicare for All.”

Bloomberg News has joined the anti-Trump campaign. Some are deeply concerned that this virus scare has been created by John Hopkins’ map and they have Bloomberg’s $1.8 billion contributions. Do we have a HopkinsGate affair? Has this been a political coup or just academic incompetence? We should have a Senate investigation!

BTW: John Hopkins has a facility in our office complex. They are open as “essential” for what purpose? To create a historical map that will be all red but the virus has expired?

CDC is a Private Organization – Not Government!

[thus quite suspiciously convenient for the cabal, no Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests are possible]

Posted Mar 26, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Some people have questioned my concern over both the CDC and John Hopkins University is a PRIVATE organization where the CDC accepts private funding – NOT ONLY GOVERNMENT! The CDC is quasi-government under the Department of Health and Human Services which strangely has sources of funding that are predicated on the fact that it also has a private 501(c)(3) public charity, like the Clinton Foundation. The CDC Foundation receives charitable contributions and philanthropic grants from individuals, foundations, corporations, universities, NGOs and other organizations to advance the work of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is NOT a government-funded organization. It is not exclusively a government-funded – very curious.

I have serious questions as to what is being driven by the CDC in conjunction with John Hopkins University who takes $1.8 billion from Bloomberg. The CDC and John Hopkins are either deliberately trying to create an economic depression, or are sublimely ignorant of the consequences of their scorched earth policy. Yes, we can cure contagions by sequestering everyone and shutting down the economy. We all then live on handouts from the government, stay home, don’t work, and watch TV? As one reader commented: “Mirror, Mirror, on the wall; Guess we are all socialists after all!”

Understanding the European Banking Crisis

Posted Mar 26, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: […] Awhile back you mentioned the ECB doesn’t have unilateral authority to expand the money supply, and that the political crisis in Europe would begin once the ECB ran out of cash reserves. How far off are we from that moment, and how does the Repo crisis tie into that?

ANSWER: Yes. To be clear, the Fed can create physical dollars to buy federal bonds to back the currency. The ECB simply has the power to create euros through its member banks, but there are no consolidated federal bonds to back the currency. This means that the ECB relies upon the consent of member states to be able to expand the money supply. That structural difference would be as if the Fed needed the approval of all 50 states to print dollars.

The very backing of banks is also substantially different. In the USA, reserves are held exclusively in US federal government instruments. In Europe, they have holdings of various member state debts. Since they have rejected the consolidation of debt, this also extends to the BAIL-IN policy. If banks are in trouble, the ECB could only lower rates. It cannot bail out banks in Italy for that would mean that money would flow from Germany to Italy. That is contrary to the no consolidation of the debt rule.

This is really one giant structural mess that I do not see being addressed until the system implodes. Only then, maybe, will the politicians revise the system or face the collapse of the entire EU structure.

Ferguson Reverses his Claims on the Virus were Wrong

Posted Mar 26, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
One of the people who has assisted in this panic over the coronavirus has been Neil Ferguson, who led the @imperialcollege authors who warned of 500,000 deaths and 2.2 million people would be infected from the coronavirus.

Now, low and behold, Ferguson has himself tested positive for the virus and has suddenly announced a change of view. Ferguson has been a major contributing factor in causing the world economy to collapse. He has advocated locking down the economy which has been behind the movement around the world.

I find this very curious that he would advocate shutting down the economy when he knows the economic damage this would have. The number of people whose jobs will be lost, and small businesses destroyed around the world is incalculable. Ferguson now says both that the U.K. should have enough ICU beds and that the coronavirus will probably kill under 20,000 people in the U.K. and interestingly he now admits that more than half of whom would have died by the end of the year in any case because they were so old and sick. Ferguson now predicts that the epidemic in the U.K. will peak and subside within “two to three weeks” after advocating 18+ months of quarantine would be necessary.

Ferguson’s model is highly questionable for it was obviously based on human assumptions that were WRONG! Socrates has projected it would peak by the week of April 6th to the worst-case scenario the week of April 20th. I think Socrates has done a far better job than any model ever designed that requires human assumptions/presumptions. I do not input any assumptions /presumptions into Socrates whatsoever. Socrates analyzes everything on its own WITHOUT human input or tweaking. Here was Socrates’ array on the Dow Published last November. Besides showing a string of Directional Changes until March, it showed that March would be a Panic Cycle and that volatility would rise February and March.

There was NO HUMAN INTERVENTION nor was there any HUMAN ASSUMPTION imposed. Socrates is the ONLY fully functioning Artificial Intelligence system in the world. It is not an expert system. It takes the raw data and projects the timing for everything functions with an inherent cycle.

UK Government Downgrades Coronavirus as No Longer Highly Dangerous

Posted Mar 26, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
The British government has downgraded the coronavirus from being an acute infectious disease with a high case fatality rate. After reviewing the data, they have come to their senses. Moreover, a study released by Oxford finds that perhaps 50% of those in the UK have the virus and the overwhelming number experience it like the normal flu and have little symptoms. The study suggests that fewer than one in a thousand of those infected with COVID-19 become ill enough to need hospitalization. So why the hysteria? There is some other agenda here!

In Italy, they are testing corpses. They are deliberately trying to attribute death to only the virus. This appears to also be a political agenda. Some are quietly suggesting behind the curtain that this has been the result of the refugees and Europe’s refusal to compensate Italy for a policy they never approved. The talk is this is perhaps laying the foundation for a separatist movement.

This begs the question as to why there is a panic in the United States. Why is there a demand to shut down the economy? This smells more like a political coup rather than a serious health threat. This is becoming CoronaGate. Is this really about trying to overthrow governments by the left?

Neil Ferguson appears before Parliament to explain why they were wrong.

“We based our recommendation on early data from China saying 20% of those infected would end up in critical care”

Black Death Created Capitalism – Virus Kills Capitalism

Hypocrisy & Conspiracy – Manufacturing a Crisis for Political Agendas?

Posted Mar 27, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, always appreciate your insight and perspective, especially during this crisis. Please help me and your audience understand why the elite, left and Progressives believe it is necessary to weigh the economic cost of saving a life (Obama Care death panels/Bill Gates) but dismiss this logic during this crisis? I now hear all life is precious and if the closure of the economy is required to save even one life, it must be done Hypocrisy! This holds for their refusal to allow the use of long used antivirals…their message, let them die. Their hypocrisy must be exposed,

ANSWER: There is no logic to this. The UK has downgraded this virus and there is NO EVIDENCE that it warrants shutting down the entire economy. There is a political agenda here that seems to go beyond just trying to overthrow Trump and Merkel. This is also about rushing in ID2020 to infuse us all with chips, thanks to Bill Gates.

Is Greta Trying to Cash in on the Coronavirus?

Posted Mar 27, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Even Greta Thunberg is getting in on the act by trying to claim she has the coronavirus. She wrote in a social media post on Tuesday that she and her father had both shown symptoms of COVID-19 after returning from a recent trip to Central Europe. She had stayed inside and self-isolated for the past two weeks, though she had not been tested for the virus, she said on Instagram where she has 10 million followers.

Meanwhile, Greta said on Tuesday that the swift and far-ranging economic collapse and social shifts being brought in to stem the coronavirus pandemic have shown that the rapid action needed to curb climate change was also possible. Once again, her movement is all about shutting down industry to save the planet. This entire coronavirus seems to be a scam to achieve political upheavals. The excuses for the socialist agenda collapsing by next year to just print money as proposed under MMT and to accomplish perhaps the end goals of the climate change movement.

This is all beginning to appear indeed as an inconvenient truth. The problem is that these people know that the socialist agenda is collapsing. Pensions are failing thanks to negative interest rates. Their entire agenda for decades is about to be buried in the sands of time. I have warned that they would rise and fight back. Never in my imagination would I have guessed they could tear civilization apart by pretending everyone will die from a virus. Even Oxford University has shown maybe one in a thousand who contract the virus would require hospitalization.

Is John Hopkins on the Take?

Posted Mar 27, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
COMMENT: […] I am a big fan and a subscriber. For the record, please note the above. Johns Hopkins was once the most famous medical school in the country. I am a grad. It has sold out to the govt. Recall that once Milton Eisenhower (Ike’s brother) was the President of Johns Hopkins University.

Johns Hopkins gets more federal research money than any other university in the country. Keep up the good work.

Sincerely, R, MD

REPLY: People ask me why we do not charge governments. Once you take a dime, they own you. Governments call on me for one reason – they know I tell them the truth. When I wrote to President Reagan back in 1985 objecting to the creation of the G5 and the manipulation of the dollar, I was told I would never be called on again. “You don’t go out of committee!” I responded I don’t G.A.S.! I was told to be a good boy, do studies Congress needed to pass bills and I would make millions a year. They ask you to do a study and tell you what it must say.

I have never taken a dime from governments and never will. Once you go down that road, you become a financial prostitute. I would NEVER trust any study paid for by governments – i.e. Steele Dossier paid for by Hillary. Anything paid for by a government is NEVER trustworthy – I have found no exception so far.

Proposal for a One World Government Being Floated

Posted Mar 27, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
The former Prime Minister Gordon Brown has urged world leaders to create a temporary form of global government to tackle the twin medical and economic crises caused by the Coronavirus. He is no fool. He knows once there is the formation of anything pretended to be “temporary” it exists forever. Why are these people so intent upon trashing our freedoms and converting the world into an authoritarian paradise for them?

Keynesian Economics is collapsing. They will all be thrown out on the street if not dragged out and hanged when hoards of people who counted on these social programs realize they have been played for fools.

Since the coronavirus model of Neil Ferguson has been shown to be wrong, they will NEVER relinquish the emergency powers they have seized already. When Ferguson appeared before the British Parliament, they never once criticized him and simply said thank you for your efforts. Why is there no recognition of this?

The stay-at-home should be immediately revoked and businesses should be restored. The fact that this is NOT being done has shown precisely what I was getting from my sources that this was (1) bogus, and (2) there were elites who sold in January everything, including bonds. This is the first collapse where the flight to quality was NOT to bonds, but to cash.

As they say, this ain’t over until the fat lady sings. This is a coup against our freedom because socialism is on the verge of collapse.

Why Flattening the Curve is Overrated

Posted Mar 30, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
COMMENT: […] Thanks for your models and the key insights. My wife, who is an ER nurse, came across this article recently. She read about 90% out loud to me as she believes, based upon her medical knowledge and overall disgust with the hysteria around COVID-19, that this post gives some great perspective on the virus and its economic impact. It’s worth a read, and perhaps a repost to your blog

REPLY: This entire affair has become a war against Trump. It is no longer about the virus nor is it about what is best for the country. A recent piece in the New York Times talked about Liberty University’s spring break would be over and its president, Jerry Falwell Jr., spoke with the physician who runs Liberty’s student health service. Dr, Eppes replied: “We’ve lost the ability to corral this thing.” He did not urge Falwell to close the school. “I just am not going to be so presumptuous as to say, ‘This is what you should do and this is what you shouldn’t do.’”

The New York Time then reports that Mr. Falwell is a “staunch ally of President Trump and an influential voice in the evangelical world.” When anyone disagrees with the panic they are being deliberately mocked. The media is in full swing to take down Trump. Anyone who dares to disagree with their position to shut down the world economy is being blocked as Twitter has done with the President of Brazil who was urging people to return to work.

This is becoming an all out coup. Freedom of speech is suppressed and anyone who dares to disagree with the left is isolated, hated, and mocked. The world these people are creating will be very dark indeed. They are encouraging civil war at every turn. People cannot be locked down. Already people are starting to rob stores, break-in and looting food in Italy, and we are just getting started.

In England, you are only allowed outside your house once. Neighbors are encouraged to report on each other exactly as they did behind the Berlin Wall. One of our readers who lives in a wealthy suburb of London reports that a neighbor’s house where they are not there has been looted three times. The police finally arrive two days after the third time and said bad luck.

What the press is doing to society this time around just to defeat Trump and right is not only casting us into a new age of totalitarianism, but we are not coming out of this in any possible way where it will be a return to business as usual. The press is aiding and abetting the overthrow of democracy all to desperately change the balance of power.

Many people didn’t like the [/my longstanding] forecast that China would supplant the United States as the next financial capital of the world. Some emails were outright nasty. I do not think it takes that much imagination to see why Socrates will be correct. The West is committing economic suicide. Asia is returning to normal as quickly as possible. We are engulfed in the collapse of socialism and governments conspiring to eliminate paper currencies, seize all assets including cryptocurrencies, and force everyone into their digital currencies to ensure 100% control of our financial lives.

Italy To Put up All Government Buildings as Collateral for Loans?

Posted Mar 30, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Europe is the epic center of our economic doom. Their socialistic polices have been following Marx since Word War II. They have used the Quantity Theory of Money and took interest rates negative in 2014 and have been unable to stimulate their economies because they tax the “rich” which has done nothing but impoverish the people as small businesses fail to form. Whatever they could have done to destroy their economy, they have done right in cue and with such zeal.

With Keynesian Economics utterly destroyed, the ECB is promoting Coronabonds because they have nothing left to try except canceling the paper currency. Italy is stepping out and has seen the light that the austerity policy which has been imposed upon them has devastated their economy. The conversion of national debts to the Euro only doubled their real outstanding debt and the politicians lacked any understanding of the economic real-world to realize what they have done.

Italy is now looking at providing government real estate as guarantees to secure billions in loans. These include the building of the House of Representatives and the seat of the premier. This illustrates that there is a crisis in debt – people are no longer willing to buy government bonds at absurdly low rates when credit risk is rising exponentially. What is left? Not much to support a European economy destined to be the greatest economic failure since the fall of Communism. What is next for sale? Perhaps all the art in the national museums?

Good Traders Know When They are Wrong & Also Know When Something is Wrong

Posted Mar 31, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: […] Good traders know when they are wrong based upon objective evidence. You argue that the Coronavirus isn’t a true pandemic, and that the governments’ reactions to this are politically driven with the intention of advancing a socialist agenda. Your perspective is logical and supportable. But, it is very hard not to get caught up in the media hype and the constant stream of dire predictions and numbers. So, I am still not convinced one way or the other.

What would you need to see stati[sti]cally for you to change your position, and determine that the Coronavirus is in fact a true pandemic warranting the governments’ response?

ANSWER: This is a pandemic, not an epidemic. The distinction is very significant. What I am saying is that politics is now taking over and using the hype for political gain. As of March 30, 2020, there have been 142,178 confirmed cases and 2,484 deaths. The flu results in 10 times the number of deaths each year. Ask yourself, why do we not shut down the entire economy for every flu?

If we take the ratio of flu numbers (10x), then there should be about 40,000 hospitalizations, 1.8 million medical visits, and 3.8 million people who get the virus. With 142,178 confirmed, we are well behind the 1.8 million for this flu season and that is not considered an epidemic.

The hype is being used for political purposes. This is way too exaggerated to make sense. This is too convenient and organized. I PERSONALLY have real information that elites in Europe were given the heads up and sold not just their shares, but their bonds. NEVER has there been a flight to quality that went directly to cash — not even 1929!

The numbers are far from what would be necessary to imply any justification for closing the entire world. It is true that good traders know when they are wrong, but they also know when something is wrong and this does not add up to the past.

Sweden Bucks the Hysteria – Refuses to Close its Economy

Posted Apr 1, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
We have received countless emails from Sweden where we have a large number of readers, clients, and many very active politically. Sweden has not followed the rest of the West and has taken this virus insanity with a realistic approach. Unlike Demark and Norway, Sweden did not follow with a stay at home order for a month destroying their economy. Sweden shut down ONLY its high schools, colleges while keeping open its preschool and grade schools so not crazy isolation drama. The also kept open the pubs, restaurants, and its borders. It also did not prohibit skying.

While social life in Europe and much of the U.S. now centers on the home isolation and a nose-dive in GDP with a rise in unemployment, Sweden looked at the number and did not see where this would be an epidemic. It will be interesting to see the economic numbers we will be able to look at on a comparison basis.

The Health Forecasts are Politically Motivated

Posted Apr 1, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
The left has been exploiting this for political gain both in the USA and in Europe. Pelosi snuck in the provision for the creation of digital currency. This is what is going on in Europe. The central banks are testing right now their digital currency platforms to eliminate paper money.

All our sources, who are HIGHLY RELIABLE, are putting this squarely in the hands of the left within Europe. There is even speculation that Neil Ferguson may have been paid off like Christopher Steele to create a deliberately false forecast to support the take over of government by the left.

I have reported that there are two epidemiological teams in London, one at Imperial, and one at Oxford, and they have very different forecasts about COVID-19. I reported that the Oxford team saw this as a minor event which was reported by the London Financial Times. There has been an immediate attempt to call the Oxford study bogus because it clearly did not support a governmental power grab of this nature. Now we have Sanford and many others asking what is going on.

The Imperial team, which is led by Prof. Neil Ferguson, has been the one accepted by politicians BECAUSE it justified shutting down the world economy. Ferguson is a current member of SAGE, which is the UK government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies. However, they have a track record of being very wrong, which is being covered up.

Back in 2001, they created a panic over a foot and mouth epidemic when they were led by Professor Roy Anderson, and Ferguson was his protege. It was Anderson who established Imperial as the government’s go-to team on communicable disease crises. There has been serious questions about why the government used Imperial, but my experience is you get that sort of position when they need a study and tell you the conclusion they need to hear.

Anderson left Oxford and joined Imperial allegedly because he had not declared to the Wellcome Trust the fact that he was receiving income from a scientific firm, even though he was a Trustee of the Wellcome Trust, and a director of a Wellcome Trust Centre no less. Additionally, Anderson had allegedly also publicly claimed that a woman in the zoology department was only appointed to a readership after her five-year fellowship because she had slept with the head of the department. There were also allegations against him, but his allegation against this lecturer resulted in him being suspended for two months. For these reasons, he allegedly decided to leave Oxford and went to Imperial. He also took Neil Ferguson with him. BTW, the woman won her legal case against Anderson when it finally went to court.

The woman who Anderson allegedly accused of sleeping her way into an Oxford Readership was Sunetra Gupta who is now the head of the Oxford team engaged in the bitter struggle against the Imperial team that Anderson set up with Neil Ferguson. This is the backdrop behind the whole Imperial recommendation to shut down the world economy.

This has been an ego-driven world of power politics where Ferguson really went over the top. But was this really just about personal feuds, or was there a lot of money behind this fake research? The Oxford group is now working with colleagues at the Universities of Cambridge and Kent to start antibody testing on the general population as soon as possible.

USD v China

Posted Apr 2, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: […] You were completely right, as always, about the USD rally. When we get closer to 2032 and thus closer to China being the number 1 economy of the world, will the CNY take over the position of the USD.

Apparently in Asia people are already accepting more and more CNY in favor of the USD. Can you please shed some light here, thank you for your answer

ANSWER: That is the way the cookie crumbles. However, we may see a completely new monetary system by then. The dollar being the reserve currency imposes a lot of problems. First, whatever economic policies take place in the USA, they are exported. Thus, a rising dollar right now exports deflation to those countries using a dollar peg. This is why the British pound lost its stature in 1949. The devaluation at that point impacted the entire Commonwealth and that is when we see many member break with the pound.

In 1949, use of the British Pound was terminated and the Canadian Dollar remained pegged to the USD at 1.1 CAD = 1 USD. In the 1950s, Canada decided to have a floating currency; however, in 1962 the currency became a fixed exchange rate again at 0.925 USD = 1 Canadian dollar.

We will most likely see some sort of a basket of currencies emerge [and/or Bitcoin or the basket including Bitcoin for the RESERVE currency in a two-tiered monetary system reset, c.f. also] rather the CNY replace the dollar as a RESERVE currency [because for one of the reasons nobody, not even the Chinese, can trust the Chinese].

The West is committing economic suicide for it is desperate to cling to Marxist socialism for politicians know not how to run for office without promises to take money from someone else.

Is Commercial Real Estate in Trouble?

Posted Apr 2, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
COMMENT: […] am located in the intermountain west where many national tech companies are re-locating. We are referred to as “Silicon Slopes” of the west. Since Covid-19 came to light and we have essentially a “stay at home” and work policy here in Utah, all the new beautiful office buildings packed with tech companies are now empty. I was joking with some of my co-workers that when the dust settles many of these companies may realize that they were nearly as efficient/ productive without having their employees all in the same room. I believe that the fallout to commercial real estate may be an unintended by-product that will come from all of this. In speaking with a couple of different business owners, their leases come up for renewal in August and both have already said they don’t need the space anymore. I just find it interesting that this virus is the gift that keeps on giving with so many unintended casualties. Thanks for keeping it real.


(data through end of 2019 only)

REPLY: Yes, commercial real estate is crashing. This may be an area of unexpected consequences. If they keep raising taxes on businesses, they will simply convert employees to contracted independents. That will eliminate the employer matching taxes. These people have not realized the damage they have done to the economy. This is not going to be back to normal. Many small businesses that were finding it hard to compete with online businesses will not reopen.

We do see a sharp spike low during the 2nd quarter 2020. That has been our target for an initial low since our forecast back in 2015. We will be looking at updating our real estate forecasts given the recent events.

Why The U.S. Commercial Real Estate Bubble Is About To Burst by Jesse Colombo • Apr 30, 2020

Wait, What?! Why Are Real Estate Prices Rising in the Middle of a Recession? by Andrew Syrios • Jun 13, 2020

[…] But more importantly, there are two major reasons that real estate prices continue to rise:

  1. Supply has shrunk.
  2. Unprecedented federal action has been taken.

[…]

People are scared to list their house right now—or at least believe it is better to wait. So those that can wait are waiting.

[…]

Many small businesses and a decent number of large firms have gone bankrupt. Already, 2020 has seen 13 noteworthy retailers declare bankruptcy (whereas in 2019, it was 17 for the entire year). This includes household names such as J.C. Penney, J.Crew, and Pier 1.

To make matters worse, food is seeing historic price increases due to the lockdowns.

And remember, it takes a long time for a default to become a foreclosure and for those foreclosures to begin dragging down the housing market. By some early (and in my opinion, overly pessimistic) predictions, mortgage holders are bracing for up to 15 million defaults.

While the number likely won’t be that high, it will still be high. Yes, inventory will remain low, but as people go into default or simply need to move, large numbers of properties will eventually hit the market. With reduced demand, this will put downward pressure on housing prices.

When will this happen?

It’s impossible to say. But it would seem highly likely it will happen to one degree or another.

The only ways I see this not happening would be either a “V-shaped recovery,” which is very unlikely now, or the federal government pushing so much money into the economy it somehow keeps housing prices afloat. But this would only be in a nominal sense, as inflation would quickly get out of hand in that scenario.

UN Wants Global Power to Tax 10% for the Coronavirus

Posted Apr 2, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Anyone who thinks for one second that I am exaggerating by calling this a global coup does not know me very well. I do not buy into conspiracy theories. I rely upon qualified sources – not rumor or conjecture. I have WARNED that we are facing a leftist coup of major proportions. I have warned that this virus was not a real threat from the beginning. It was not a biological weapon spliced with aids or a leak. This has been an intentional misrepresentation. My sources suggest it existed in the previous flu season in China.

The United Nations, and their World Health Organization, is behind this coup as well. The death toll is far less than the annual flu (about 10%) but the press is so happy to support this Marxist agenda. The journalists who are following orders from their managing editors are sealing their own future and that of their families and children. They used this virus for there is no vaccine but there are plenty of independent sources saying the medicine to treat malaria have been working with no deaths in France and elsewhere.

The United Nations has now produced a 26-page report outlining an action plan to address the various socio-economic impacts of COVID-19 and the DESTRUCTION of the world economy that has been intentionally carried out by the left. The United Nations has been using Climate Change to try to create a one-world government order, but they have run into way too much resistance. Climate Change is now dead. They have moved on to something that allows them to threaten that people will die IMMEDIATELY unless they surrender all their freedoms. The agenda of the Climate Change was to seize industry and effectively nationalize them. They will do that now by virtually bankrupting them and the state will just take them over. This is the scheme that was even talked about in Germany to nationalize companies since they cannot bail them out.

This is the oldest trick in the book. The United Nations is seeking the power to IMPOSE a 10% global tax on everyone for what they are describing as a “global health crisis unlike any in the 75-year history of the United Nations.” This is because they conspired to create one out of a hyped up virus. You would think this is at the level of the Black Death.

Everything we have ever believed were our human rights are no longer valid. The left was trying to shut down all gun sales. Trump called gun shops essential for protection in light of rising civil unrest. This is the left moving AGGRESSIVELY to force their failed agenda to the ultimate power grab. The pension system is collapsing. All the promises they have made since World War II are crumbling to dust. This is why they have been so intent upon getting rid of Trump and were fighting against BREXIT. They want no opposition. This is why I have tried to document everything […]

The Fake News – Interesting Review of Who is Who

(Google censored the revealing video, but I and many others downloaded a copy)

The Emerging COVIDGate Conspiracy

Posted Apr 4, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Bill Gates is calling for 10 more weeks of Lockdown in his Op-ed in, of course, the Washington Post. He is becoming a very dangerous man. The jobs lost and the destruction of the world economy is unbelievable. This has been an agenda behind the curtain since January. Anthony Fauci told CNN that effectively Trump is wrong and the whole country should be locked-down which will unquestionably destroy livelihoods and small businesses that will take 11 years to reconstruct from what our models are showing. Google is joining the conspiracy to destroy the economy allowing Democrats to scare the public with virus advertisements. Many assume that the elections can be postponed. Trump does not have that power and the Democrats are trying to bury Bernie.

The damage they have done is BEYOND description. They are DELIBERATELY destroying jobs for a covert agenda. The Prime Minister of Australia back in January was talking about a lockdown until June. Here we have this very agenda being pitched by Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci who is appearing to be more and more his puppet on a string against the American people and naturally Donald Trump.


(click to view video)

George Sorors has been steadily in favor of socialism. Very strange for someone who had to flee such authoritarian regimes. Soros has been a top funder of the Democratic Party and said he would give his entire fortune to prevent George Bush from becoming President. Between Gate’s foundation and Soros’ Open Society Foundations, there is a major funding effort to kill Democracy when it opposes their agenda.

There is a very clever 5G spin going around to blame this on technology. This is really a deliberate distraction so people will not look at the agenda and blame technology when this virus exists in the 2018/2019 flu season and seems to have been deliberately hyped. The 5G stories will be used to seize industry all to save the people and the planet. Whatever the radiation impact of that has is not connected to this virus. It is deliberately being used to support this political agenda.

Unprecedented Power Grab

Posted Apr 5, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
We are living not just in interesting times, we are living in UNPRECEDENTED TIMES, which has raised the stakes profoundly toward civil war. You have to wonder if someone like Bill Gates is really stupid[clever and diabolical in his intended goal] with respect to economics, or is he deliberately trying to further the same agenda he supported for Climate Change – reduce population and shut down the industry?

You may have been laid off, struggling and hoping your employer will not fold, or you may be working from home and wondering if your employer will not cut jobs and leave you there eliminating offices. Then there is the home confinement which depends on whether or not you live in a Democratic state where they want 100% lockdown, fines, and/or imprisonment if you walk outside while telling neighbors to report on you as if this were East Germany before the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Then there is the confinement with the family which many find stressful while schools are closed along with day-care-centers and caring for children 100%. The Republican States seems to be following generally just the social-distancing and allowing stores and restaurants to be open following guidelines of limiting the number of customers. Others find their families split forced to facetime, skype, or zoom as elderly relatives are trapped away from loved ones. Then there are those who know someone with COVID-19 or have found their parents go into a hospital for one thing expecting them to die and then they suddenly change the cause of death to COVID-19 out of the clear blue sky causing many to question what is really going on.

While we are all in prison since home confinement if a punishment inflicted by courts, we face the most amazing power grab in all recorded history thanks to socialism which authorizes the government to pretend to “care” for our well being as long it is profitable. This is one of the greatest rearrangements of power in modern history unfolding before our eyes—and governments are counting of scaring-the-hell out of people to ensure we’re too overwhelmed to do anything about it.

Since January, elites sold their entire stock and bond portfolios and went to cash. I know 100% that they were even tipped off to do so without necessarily outlining the objectives just stating there was this virus. Over the past weeks, governments have used this virus to expand their powers in unprecedented ways all in an amazing effort to save us from certain doom.

In Thailand, the government seized the power to censor the media. In South Korea, we find officials began using people’s cellphone, credit-card, and GPS records to track patients with COVID-19 in real-time, all to ensure they would know everyone’s contacts. Taiwan is tracking people under home quarantine in real-time. Other governments are using cellphone location data to monitor people’s movements. Taiwan has total, some 55,000 people are being kept at home through a “digital fence.”

Meanwhile, Christine Legarde is pushing hard for the cancellation of the paper currency and move to digital. As head of the IMF, she personally threatened all the tax havens to give everyone up and even threatened the Vatican to remove it from the world monetary system unless they reveal all transfers.

Even in the land of the free and the home of the brave, the US Justice Department asked lawmakers for the power to request that defendants be detained indefinitely without trial during emergencies. The Democratic states are by far the worst. In Maryland, the headline: ‘We’re not playing around’: Maryland law enforcement prepared to arrest people who defy coronavirus shutdown. In other words, they will throw you in prison to protect you where there can be no social distancing. Is this just stupidity? Or is this abuse of power to intentionally destroy the economy?

Anthony Fauci was asked by host Anderson Cooper on CNN in an effort to undermine Trump: “Knowing the science, does it make sense to you that some states are still not issuing stay-at-home orders? I mean, whether there should be a federally mandated directive for that or not, I guess that’s more of a political question, but just scientifically, doesn’t everybody have to be on the same page with this stuff?” Fauci is clearly in the pocket of Bill Gates and is systematically trying to shut down the world economy to prevent a death that are a fraction of those who die by the flu and less than those who die in car crashes.

In 2020, Fauci deliberately misleads Congress showing his dishonesty with the statistics. He compares the Coronavirus to the Flu claiming it is 10x more lethal because the death rate with the flu is only 0.1%.

What he fails to point out that this number is based on 38 to 54 million people with the flu. He was comparing those hospitalized with Coronavirus at 3% down to 2% whereas those hospitalized with the flu have a mortality rate of 6%. He gas deliberately played with the numbers to create this crisis which was predetermined would be used to enforce political change.

What is going on is VERY Dangerous. Fauci is bought and paid for and should be investigated. Bill Gates donated $100 million to Fauci’s NIH and $13.5 million to CDC. It was Bill Gates on February 28th who was already calling this a major pandemic ahead of everyone. The number of deaths is less than 10% of those caused annually by the flu. This does not add up to warrant the destruction of the economy which Fauci and Gates are advocating.

Fauci even opposed using the Malaria drug which doctors in the field have found to prevent deaths. He wanted a year of study before trying it while always supporting Bill Gates with his vaccine. Of course, Bill Gates said that his vaccine would first go to those only in the medical field, which probably included himself but if he doesn’t take it that you know its a fraud.

It appears Gates and Fauci intentionally wanted more people to die to help this political power grab. Gates was behind climate change and now a major donator and proponent of using a disease to achieve the same goals he advocated for Climate Change. Bill Gates is a socialist and is all about claiming INEQUALITY is what is the major issue in society. He wants to use his money to destroy our economy so that everyone is then equal? He is doing the same as George Soros. This is why I wrote Manipulating the World Economy and people have asked if Amazon is blocking it? No, they keep selling out. I wrote this because of the rumors behind the curtain and I was asked to please write the counter-arguments to this inequality dogma spread by Gates, Soros, and Pickety just to name a few. It has been Pickety who has manipulated data to support raising taxes to 80% to end the inequality!

[In the above video] In 2017, Fauci was already saying that the Trump administration would face a “surprise” pandemic because this has been staged. (A Partnership Georgetown University’s Center for Global Health Science and Security and Harvard University’s Global Health Institute Pandemic Preparedness in the Next Administration, Keynote Address was by Anthony Fauci).

This agenda leaked by Fauci in 2017 supported the entire Climate Change which Gates was also behind with his dire C02 forecasts that we had to reduce the population, but strangely we also need to end the inequality of wealth that has enabled him to fund a socialist grab for power. In a fake petition of 11,000 purported scientists who signed this claim that girls must stop having children was exposed to have among its signers, Mickey Mouse of the Institute for the Blind.

This was the same recommendation of Gates – reduce the population. Even Bill Gates’ push to put microchips in us all is really puzzling as to has all his money simply gone to his head? This whole ID2020 movement is just beyond belief. It has been Bill Gates calling for 10 more weeks of lockdown! Bill Gates resigned both from Microsoft and Warren Buffet’s boards. It is curious that he has helped to create probably an $80 billion loss for Buffett for his solutions will destroy both as the world economy implodes. Microsoft was worth $1.435 trillion on February 10th, and $1.115 trillion on March 23rd. Bill Gates helped to cause a $320 billion loss there. You can imaging with a $400 billion loss on the two companies where he was a board member, he would not be very popular. We will have to wait for his next SEC filing to see what he sold since his last filing as of February 14, 2020, with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. If he sold all or a major part of his 50 million shares in Berkshire after February 14th, 2020, he should be investigated and put in prison for manipulating markets. The government under existing law would then be entitled to confiscate all the wealth of the Gates Foundation.

Then the Democrats have in one voice blaming every death on Trump and have used this to divide and conquer the American people. If Hillary had won, then they would NEVER have used this virus to seize power. Their Impeachment lost, RussiaGate lost, so they needed something that was more direct and a threat of IMMEDIATE death so they have manufactured COVID-19 turning it into the next Black Death.

Nancy Pelosi used this manufactured crisis to introduce a digital currency to eliminate cash, which Trump demanded was removed, and still, she has supported the introduction of legislation to take away guns (H.R.5717 – Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act of 2020). She claims Trump fiddled like Nero as Rome burned, but she delayed it for 2 days trying to get a digital currency stuffed in there while the same people died she has been blaming Trump for. They want to make sure people cannot fight back against subjugation by outlawing guns which they have been desperately trying to achieve just like the Russian people could never rise up being unarmed.

The onslaught against Trump is so intense, they are trying to stuff every bill possible with anti-democratic legislation now using this virus for the justification. This is conspiring against the very people they are supposed to represent.

Even the study from Imperial College used by the politicians to start this crisis was bogus. It was born from a sex scandal but has been admitted was incorrect. It grossly overstated the threat to justify destroying the world economy. Neil Ferguson should be hauled out in handcuffs and put on trial for conspiring to overthrow the government.

Using this virus as the excuse for emergency powers that are outright tyrannical is just astonishing. They claim that a state of emergency is justified if the threat is public, universal, and existential, and therefore they justify extraordinary powers to save the people by removing all liberty.

They have intentionally destroyed the economy knowing full well that a huge proportion of small businesses will be forever lost. They seek to ensure that the people will be dependent upon the government and accept subjugation as was the case with the Communist Revolutions.

There is absolutely NO HISTORICAL evidence that once powers are seized in peacetime they are ever relinquished without revolution. States have NEVER given back powers of this magnitude for all we need to look at is the 9/11 terrorist attacks. TSA and money-laundering regulations reduced the $10,000 to $3,000 if you try to wire money to an individual. You can no longer hop on a plane with more than $10,000 in cash even on domestic flights. Whatever personal liberties we believed we once had are surrendered during an emergency and what has been done here with lockdown is now precedent for the future.

There is absolutely no evidence that this virus poses such a monumental threat that it warrants the shutting down of the economy and the surrender of all our liberties. The annual flu kills 10x more than this virus, but the media is so on board with this plot against the people the TRUTH is also a casualty of this virus. Why do journalists hate us so much? They were supposed to defend us but they are just playing for a seat at the table throwing scraps to the people and enjoying their power. They fail to even understand the world they are advocating for their own children. Do they realize what INEQUALITY economically really means?

It is becoming painfully obvious that we are facing an unprecedented battle for our liberty. Google is aiding the Democrats allowing them to use the virus to scare the hell out of the people in this desperate attempt to lead the uninformed to blame Trump for everything so they can seize the country and raise taxes back to 70-90%. People have asked WHY Socrates has forecast that China will become the Financial Capital of the World? If you cannot see what is happening, just go back to NETFLIX and enjoy the confinement.

Trump has been trying desperately to fight back, but the Fake News is so intent upon overthrowing our way of life it is not a battle easily won. As a matter of NATIONAL SECURITY, he should immediately restore the FCC rule of the Fairness Doctrine and extend it to the print media and to social media such as Facebook, Apple, and of course Google. If he does NOT do this, all our freedoms are in danger of extinction.

AT&T is the ultimate owner of CNN. Everyone should write to the chairman of AT&T Randall Lynn Stephenson to defend your liberty and one should question was he one of the elites who sold everything in January as many did after that January 2020 meeting in Switzerland?

This has been an unprecedented power grab and our future will never be the same. Crime will rise SUBSTANTIALLY and the threat to life and property will be far worse than any virus. They know this, and then Phase II will be emergency power to restore the order that they destroyed.

Everyone should write to their respective Republican Representative and demand an investigation into this sordid group pf characters. This is our future and the Democrats are simply on board to overthrow Trump and may NOT even be aware of the larger agenda. Unfortunately, they will never investigate if it is against their personal interests in the 2020 election.

Q&A

Posted Apr 5, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
As for the increase in deaths, I have first-hand info that this is also being contrived. Elderly people are dying from the flu and they simply put down the Coronavirus. We still show the trend should top out this week.

Nevertheless, it is still 1/10th of those who die from the flu. Hospitals are not full. The virus will run its normal course. It peaked in China in less than 30 days. It has already peaked in Italy on March 20th. Any claim that it continues beyond this week of April 6th is bogus and fake. Even New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who many see as trying to be in the running to be drafted for the Democratic nominee came out and confirmed that the number of deaths may be declining. My bet is on Socrates. It has not been wrong yet.

[…]

Note also the forecast I have been touting for the past 6 years at least that this new wave would be an inflationary one driven by SHORTAGES in agriculture. The first major producers of staple foods such as wheat and rice have restricted exports. Although there is enough food in the world, supply bottlenecks and rapidly rising prices are threatening in some regions. In Germany, there may be bottlenecks with certain types of vegetables and fruits. However, with transportation shut down to prevent the virus from spreading, this is also impacting agriculture. Socrates forecasts the trend. It does not sort out the fundamental causes behind those trends. There is a clear distinction between the two.

Bill Gates & CO2 Must Be ZERO


(click to view video)

Posted Apr 6, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Bill Gates was all on board with Greta, Al Gore, and Greenpeace. Using the coronavirus and demanding we be locked down until at least June, this is a covert means to further their climate change and to subject the world to a new authoritarian regime. What these people have done is beyond contemplation. This is a major global coup all based upon this theory of CO2 which he even admits there is no formula to even pretend if CO2 is X then the temperature will be Y.

This has been a plot to destroy society and end the Industrial Revolution. Since Bill Gates resigned from Microsoft and Berkshire Hatheway just before this deliberate destruction of our economy, if he or his foundation sold stock and bond investments ahead of this event he is supporting, that is INSIDER TRADING! He won’t have to worry about the INEQUALITY of wealth, everything he has will be forfeited as a fine to the government. and he will be equal once again and his conscience will be restored.

Did Bill Gates Buy the CDC?

Posted Apr 6, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Dr. Anthony Fauci has a $100 million conflict of interest which is why he was opposing Trump. He is in league with Bill Gates who has pledged $100 million for Fauci to play with. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID, a division of National Institutes of Health, NIH) director Dr. Anthony Fauci, who was against using chloroquine, said in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, “There’s no magic drug for coronavirus right now,” and lectured, “Let me put it into perspective for the viewers .. there has been anecdotal non-proven data that it [chloroquine] works… but when you have an uncontrolled trial you can never definitely say that it works.”

I have warned that the CDC takes private money through its foundation. Gates even gave CDC Foundation $13.5 million. I do not believe we can trust Fauci in the least. The CDC nor the NIH should NEVER* be allowed to be bought in this way. It is Gates who wants to inject us all with microchips. I seriously do not understand if all his money has simply gone to his head.

Trump should fire Fauci first and secondly shut down all private donations from anyone, especially Bill Gates. This is a matter of NATIONAL SECURITY. Gates should be investigated and all his connections. Anyone who sold all their stocks and bonds just in advance should be hauled out for Insider Trading. But these people typically also OWN the SEC. Trump needs to appoint a Special Prosecutor and never someone from New York City.

There is So Much Professional Dissent Against Fauci & Gates

What is discussed here is the way cycles work. Professor Wittkowski explains that because of this insane intervention to try to flatten the curve, they have deliberately prolonged the crisis and have prevented the majority of the people from building a natural immunity to this virus so vaccines would NOT be necessary, proving Bill Gates is WRONG!!!!!

[…]

The advice being carried out by Fauci and Bill Gates is ABSOLUTELY wrong, and it has unnecessarily destroyed the economy. There should be a class-action suit filed against the Gates Foundation – NOW!!!!!!

Bill Gates is the Greatest Threat to Your Future


(click to view video)

Posted Apr 6, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Bill Gates is the single greatest threat to your future. His entire agenda is to outlaw all gatherings until you are vaccinated and chipped so they know you are vaccinated. This man is conspiring to take down Western culture. The Left has jumped on his band-wagon so rapidly, this is an unquestionable coup with the VERY SAME objective of the Global Warming he also has been pushing. We are in a very battle for our own freedom. He is wiping out the economy and all jobs unless you accept his agenda. He has destroyed small businesses and pushed his personal agenda to deprive people of their livelihoods and he has suppressed the poor even the worst. They were living pay-check to pay-check.

This is exactly the approach of Adolf Hitler took before he turned against the Jews. He was systematically killing invalids and war veterans who had been handicapped during World War I. They were inferior and this is what Gates is proposing with his vaccines that you are inferior without it. You either accept his chips, or you will be permanently confined to your house and starved to death I suppose because you will be unable to hold a job.

Hitler took the physically and mentally handicapped and viewed them as a threat to his Aryan race and these people were deemed as “useless” to society, and, ultimately, unworthy of life. There are countries already considering bans on entering the public unless you have been vaccinated. It is one thing if we were facing the Black Death with 50% death rates. We are running 10% of the death rate of the flu. So what is going on? This makes no sense for a virus. There will be many more so do we need a chip for every disease? Refuse and we are a threat to his great society? Sounds very Aryan race to me.

Hitler rose to power PRECISELY on the Pi Target – 1932.89. Bill Gates has unleashed his conspiracy against the people precisely on the turn of the ECM on January 18, 2020. There was a meeting in Switzerland where select people were told this virus would crash everything so get out of your stocks and bonds (_this is not speculation nor a guess_).

We are looking at an authoritarian government coming to the West by 2024. Bill Gates is openly destroying the Industrial Revolution and proposing to imprison us unless we accept his dogma. When like minds such as his and Soros end up at the end place, it is called a conspiracy. Socialist politicians are far too eager to accept this simply because they know their systems are collapsing.

Bill Gates’ father was on the board of Planned Parenthood which many saw as a covert means to justify abortion among minorities in a very similar way to Hitler’s cleansing. Bill Gates in an interview said: “When I was growing up, my parents were almost involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating. At the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing. And almost treating us like adults, talking about that.”

His views of overpopulation are dominated in his CO2 arguments on how to prevent climate change by reducing the population. He and his puppet Fauci are trying to block anything other than his vaccine when studies in France have shown 100% effective use. Gates is cheering the death toll to support his agenda.

The leftist hate Trump and send me such hate mail while pretending to be pacifists. They think freedom is their right to force everyone else to comply with their vision. My vision is to just split the country and the left move left and everyone else moves to the right and construct a wall down the center. I believe you leave me alone and I will leave you alone. I was not born to be some else’s slave and do not want them to be my slave. They are not satisfied with that – they must oppress everyone to their idea. That is authoritarianism and they can’t even see that.

Fake Statistics to Boost Deaths of COVID-19 Proving this is Political

Posted Apr 7, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
COMMENT: […] I feel strongly that the below is important further information on the skewing of statistics in the COVID-19 debacle by CDC directive. I became aware of it through Green Med Info, of which the website link and full article are at the bottom of this email.

Immediately below is the pdf and link to the CDC document cited in the Green Med Info article. Operative words, and why I am sending this to your and Socrates attention is in the last paragraph: “COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have caused or contributed to death.”

Sending this from down under in Oz where the beaches are still open, as are the National Park walking trails just up the valley here on the S.E. coast of Queensland.

REPLY: Yes, thank you. I have a cousin who is a nurse and many clients working with these very people. So I know what is going on. Any death from the flu is assigned to this coronavirus. They are attributing the cause of death to this virus without confirmation:

W͟i͟l͟l͟ ͟C͟O͟V͟I͟D͟-͟1͟9͟ ͟b͟e͟ ͟t͟h͟e͟ ͟u͟n͟d͟e͟r͟l͟y͟i͟n͟g͟ ͟c͟a͟u͟s͟e͟?͟ The underlying cause depends upon what and where conditions are reported on the death certificate. However, the rules for coding and selection of the underlying cause of death are expected to result in COVID19 being the underlying cause more often than not.

Are Far-Left Democrats Anti-Religion?

Posted Apr 7, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Do these Democrats who are in league with those trying to undermine our economy and future for their personal power have any conscience whatsoever? Do they even believe in God or just money?

ANSWER: They are true Marxists who will NEVER publicly admit their beliefs. The only way to determine that is to judge them by their actions.

The House Democrats changed the oath someone must swear and removed the words, “So Help Me God.” (See New York Times: May 11, 2019) They rebuffed objections from the Republicans that those words have been in there since the nation was formed.

The leading Democratic Senator from California, Dianne Feinstein has discriminated against Catholic judges being appointed. She has been against religion for decades.

You cannot be a Socialist and religious at the same time. I personally do not understand this but the far-left Democrats are also the most anti-religious people you will ever meet. They are in full agreement with Marx that it is just the opium for the masses.

US Deterrent Against War was Our Economy – Not Nukes!

Posted Apr 7, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
The most important threat that Bill Gates has done is he has invited war. He has so weakened the economy of the West that he has placed the West in the very same position as the Roman Empire. Once it was weakened from within, that is the calling card for others to attack. The power of the United States was not our nuclear missiles. The fact that the United States had the largest consumer economy in the world that the rise of Europe from the ashes of World War II, Japan, and China, were all dependent upon the American consumer. Destroying that base means that these other nations no longer can be sustained by selling to Americans. If Americans catch a cold, the rest of the world gets pneumonia.

It is a basic military strategy that the next war will be fought with a multitude of means. That is not limited to strictly military. While World War I was fought with chemical weapons, the next will be fought with biological weapons which will fall under the non-military category. They will be deployed to strike during times of conflict. With people like Bill Gates and his single-minded objective of reducing population, he has created that internal conflict and destroyed the American consumer market which was our greatest deterrent to war.

As other economics now implode unable to sell to Americans because he has advocated shutting down America and has his lap-dog Fauci impose it, he has set in motion the greatest threat to world war. Germany, for example, is a mercantilist economy dependent upon selling manufacture to everyone else. Germans rank among the poorest in Europe. Italians have a greater net worth. As all of the external economics move into major declines and their people suffer, the plot thickens to blame this on Americans and tensions will rise.

Additional non-military strategies, of course, hacking into websites, targeting financial institutions, terrorism, using the media, and instigating class-warfare internally. But encouraging the west to move to digital currencies, then you both hack the system and target the power grids. This will undermine the economic ability to even fight. That is what the Germans were doing to Britain. Counterfeiting British pound notes and dropping them from planes with the hope of undermining the economy.

Bill Gates is a threat to World Peace. He has been using the World Economic Forum to infiltrate world leaders.

Q&A 4-7-2020

Posted Apr 7, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION #1: Marty, you always said that gold and the dollar would rise during the monetary crisis cycle. I must admit, the fundamentals always seem to unfold to support your forecast. The article on the dollar shortage is really enlightening. The gold bugs hate you because you do not support their hatred for the dollar. You have taught me to see the world from a real hedge fund manager’s eyes. So do you see this dollar crisis taking down the IMF?

QUESTION #2: Martin, Why do you seem so surprised about the chaos Soros and Gates are creating? Didn’t your (ECM) model predict it? Some events or Some person(s) needed to be the catalyst. Change is inevitable.

Resistance is futile.

[…]

COMMENT #4: Even if Dow briefly touchs 28K I am done for the year:) 35% up in dollar terms , who cares what happens next:)) On a different note if the dollar shortage is as large as you have been writing I think Fed has done a decent job and kept DXY at 100 (so far).

ANSWER: There is a serious risk that like the ECB, the IMF is stepping into something they have no clue what is going on. The total outstanding private corporate debt from emerging markets is more than $2 trillion in size and denominated in US dollars. However, the total market is $15 trillion. This is astonishing and the goldbugs harp on the dollar debt and hyperinflation and the dollar must turn to dust. They remain clueless that ONLY a rise in the dollar will blow-up the world economy unleashing massive sovereign debt defaults.

Yes, the ECM has been projecting this would be a commodity wave of inflation, but I have stressed many times, this is not the traditional boom inflation. It is inflation on the back of a SHORTAGE, not speculative demand.

I appreciate the line from the Borg, “Resistance is Futile.” I think if we do not resist, I hate to see the world we leave behind. As I have also said many times, I thank God I am not 18 years old. The youth will never know the freedoms of the prior generations.

Is the Gates Foundation Transparent?

Posted Apr 8, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Isn’t Bill Gates linked with Al Gore and Greenpeace? Was he too using Greta? Wasn’t he funding covert political events in India?

ANSWER: I do not know to what extent he was funding operations in India. Greenpeace was cut off for that activity. Gates, through his Gates Philanthropy Partners, is soliciting money to use to promote the COVID-19 global shut down. There is an independent organization that monitors things like the Gates Foundation. As Global Justice Now said in their report:

“This influence has earned the Bill and Melinda
Gates Foundation a place in the regular reporting
of aid to the global south, as compiled by the
OECD. But this has not been matched with the
corresponding accountability and scrutiny to the
public that we have in aid programmes run by
governments. At present, the foundation is obliged
to only report its high level financial figures to the US
government and its programmes are not subject to
independent or public evaluation.” — gjn_gates_report_june_2016_web_final_version_2

Gates has been obsessed with the population it seems his whole life. 2010 Bill Gates purchased 500,000 shares in multinational Monsanto — one of the world’s biggest developers and owners of genetically engineered crop patents and seed licenses. But in 2012, Bill Gates gave $10 million to British scientists to crack a problem he hoped might help solve the looming world food crisis. The Gates Foundation suggested that if British scientists could transfer the genes that give some root bacteria the ability to produce nitrogen from soil and air into wheat, corn, or rice plants, then it might help feed the nine billion people who will inhabit the planet by 2050.

Insofar as his links to Al Gore, Netflix released a three-part series called “Inside Bill’s Brain: Decoding Bill Gates,” directed by Davis Guggenheim, who is best known for directing the Academy Award-winning Al Gore documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth.” But that is not the mere superficial line. Both Bill Gates and Al Gore funded $80 million to Nature’s Fynd to the end goal of replacing meat, because dairy cows create so much CO2. This is the goal of the company to promote animal-free protein.

There is an agenda and there are links. However, as Global Justice Now points out, the Gates Foundation is not very transparent.

Why the Quantity Theory of Money will Fail ONCE Again


(click to view video)

Posted Apr 8, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
QUESTION: Your explanation of why increasing the quantity of money has failed seems to be the only explanation that is viable. Do you see the same outcome this time around?

ANSWER: The academics assume we are morons. There is no comprehension of how human nature responds. Hoards of debased coins are found from the 3rd century and the fall of Rome. Under the academic view, inflation should rise by simply increasing the money supply presuming we will just be like kids in high school and party spending the cash with no regard for what comes tomorrow. When people do not TRUST the future, they will NOT spend the money – they hoard it. This is why the European Central Bank is moving to eliminate cash for Quantitative Easing since 2008 and negative interest rates since 2014 have absolutely PROVEN beyond a shadow of doubt that the Quantity Theory of Money is bogus.

Now ad to this reality the destruction of Capital Formation. My definition of this is not including capital goods. I use this term limited to liquid capital – cash, stocks, and bonds. Therefore, the Great Depression was so profound because when the sovereign debt of most countries was permanently defaulted on, this wiped out the Capital Formation in the United States because the conservative people bought the bonds and lost everything whereas the shareholders still have some value even if the company was liquidated.

What has taken place here is $2.2 trillion is nothing. It will not create inflation because the destruction of Capital Formation is just getting started. They already have to put in another $350 billion for small business relief and this will not be enough nor prevent permanent bankruptcies since these idiots want to keep the country locked down until June.

The loss to the economy will be close to $5-6 trillion in permanent damage so even $3 trillion will not be inflationary. If you lost $10,000 in the stock market and I hand you $2,000 for compensation, will you celebrate ane run out to party? Or will you hunker down and save it until you see a light at the end of the tunnel?

Gates – Stupid or Diabolical?

Posted Apr 8, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Bill Gates is obsessed with his theory on vaccines and is clueless with regard to the economy and all the loss of jobs. People should lose their pensions, their livelihoods, and crime has already risen by 22.5% in New York City. None of this bothers Gates. Then we have the Democra[Zy]ts who are so caught up in their hatred of the rich, they have lost sight of everything. They are opposing relief for small businesses and want the money to go to the workers. They cannot understand that if the small businesses fail, the workers will never get their jobs back. The Democrats and Gates have deliberately caused an economic crisis far worse than the Great Depression.

Gates even admits it will take years to get back to the same economic level. He does not believe in Democracy. The people should have no right to vote for this shutdown. He believes in authoritarianism and we are too stupid to understand what is best for us.

There is no way the economy will EVER return to normal. People like Gates will insist upon his vaccines to be allowed to even work. He wants us to be tagged like cattle. What’s next? Sterilization and permits to have children? If you do not have a base level of IQ, you will be denied? Is that how he will reduce his paranoia about CO2?

Thomas Malthus FRS (1766–1834) had the same crazy ideas as Gates about the food supply. Malthus was wrong and Gates will be wrong. Society will expand as there is sufficient food supply. His analysis of the population is linear as is his analysis of CO2. Neither Malthus nor Gates ever took into consideration there are cycles to everything.

Disease is a normal thing throughout history. When we head into these Solar Minimums, that is when plagues come because mainly of malnutrition. This is what Gates is accelerating. People who pick the crops are migrant workers. In Europe, people from Poland go south to pick the crops in Spain. They are locked down. Preventing people from working is already starting to impact the food supply. There is a risk of increasing starvation. For what purpose? To get Gates’ vaccine while you die from another disease and starvation?

This is a very serious situation. Gates is tipping society toward a serious human crisis because of his stupidity or diabolical plan to reduce population?

Gates & Fauci Conspiracy

Posted Apr 9, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
The conspiracy between Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci is in the open. We now have Fauci saying the same thing as gates – the country will NEVER return to normal until everyone is vaccinated against this pretend virus. Fauci has suggested that until a vaccine is developed, we will NEVER be allowed to do anything in public.

This is the overthrow of the United States. It is a conspiracy blended with the Climate Change agenda from day one.

President Trump must appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate all the connections. I have DIRECT knowledge of calls made to elite people who were told to sell everything because of this “virus” and Bill Gates resigned from the boards of Microsoft and Berkshire Hatheway just before Warren Buffet lost up to $80 billion on March 23rd.

This is a matter of NATIONAL SECURITY and everyone should be writing to the White House now! They have weakened the US economy and thrown the world into a serious state where war now becomes the traditional response. I have always stated, my research has shown that war NEVER takes place when everyone is fat & happy. Turn the economy down, and war becomes inevitable.

Posted Apr 9, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Neil Ferguson of Imperial College in Britain is ground zero for this world lockdown.

He even testified before the British Parliament and nobody really interrogated him. He projected that the death rates would be 20% of the population and then had to admit he made a mistake. While many have focused on the sex scandal between Oxford and Imperial, behind the curtain lurks Bill Gates.

Yes, you have it. Even on the Gates Foundation site, they admit they provide funding to Imperial College.

Generation Investment Management LLP, a sustainable investment firm chaired by Al Gore with $25 billion assets under management as of Dec. 31, 2019, has been working with Breakthrough Energy Ventures chaired by Bill Gates, with a $1 billion fund that invests in companies combating climate change. Gore and Greenpeace’s Jeniffer Morgan have been using Greta to try to further their agenda. The movies done by Gore and on Bill Gates are by the same director.

Gates flew on the Lolita Express in 2013 will Jeffrey Epstein as reported in the Daily Mail in London. The connections are so deep in many different directions, this screams for a Special Prosecutor when we have people talking about we must remain in home confinement unless we are vaccinated with chips?

The Future & the Destruction of Capital Formation

Posted Apr 9, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
At this point, this not about stimulating the economy, helping the stock market, or even creating inflation. This is about trying to save the economy with the complete destruction of our capital formation. I have been deeply concerned about what is coming in 2021-2022. This is an array of the Euro. We have 2021 as a Panic Cycle Year no less. This array was published back in 2017.

The Fed is trying to save the economy while people like Gates and Fauci are trying to destroy it while claiming they care about people which they do not. The massive economic destruction that has unleashed upon our society I am sad to say will not be recovered any time soon. They are unleashing civil unrest that will explode. You cannot imprison the population in this manner for a virus with a death rate of 10% of that as the annual flu. This has been a political coup and is intent upon subjecting us to the theories that have been behind this Climate Change movement.

The value of assets is just a paper chase. They have destroyed Capital Formation so trying to print trillions to offset the destruction of trillions is not inflationary. The inflation will come with people losing confidence in governments. Already we are witnessing a food panic in China. People are running out and hoarding food even though the virus has subsided. The confidence in governments is collapsing. This will lead to civil unrest, authoritarianism, and ultimately war. The War Cycle is alive and well.

Trudeau Says Life will Not Return to Normal for 12 to 18 Months

Posted Apr 10, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Trudeau is already out there preaching the Socialist plot to keep people locked down until after the US elections following Bill Gates’ claim we should never go outside without his vaccine. He wants to keep people restrained for 12 to 18 months right through the next flu season. This will transform western civilization into the communistic form of government with a pretend managed democracy.

The COVID-19 Fraud – It’s Massive

Posted Apr 10, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Whenever the government creates a program, they alter the incentives within society. I mentioned I have a friend in London whose mother went to the hospital and he knew she was near death. After two days, the hospital claimed she died of the Coronavirus. He said how since she did not go in with that? The joke in London is that COVID-19 is the miracle cure. Nobody in London has died from a heart attack, only COVID.

Senator Dr. Scott Jensen of Minnesota came out to expose how the AMA is encouraging American doctors to overcount coronavirus deaths across the US. He showed a 7-page document coaching him, as a doctor, to fill out death certificates with a COVID-19 diagnosis without a lab test to confirm the patient actually had the virus. Why? Because of the package for this relief, hospitals are paid more to attend this virus. NOBODY is dying of the flu any more – only COVID-19.

The numbers will then be used to justify keeping the money flowing to misrepresent this as an epidemic. This fraud will then come back to justify keeping the economy locked down longer and the AMA is now contributing to the destruction of everyone’s livelihood, pension, and this exposes the corruption that always emerges with government programs.

This is when the lawyers need to see the dollars floating in the air. It is time for a class-action lawsuit against the AMA for misrepresenting this virus which is destroying small businesses and drastically increasing unemployment. Come on – we have plenty of lawyers reading this. Now’s the time to do something constructive. What the AMA is encouraging is FRAUD and to classify a death to COVID-19 without testing is actionable FRAUD. This is no different from Medicare Fraud which is a crime – For Medicaid and Medicare fraud, federal law establishes (1) a civil statute of limitations of six years (42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7a(c)(1)), and (2) a criminal statute of limitations of five years (18 U.S.C. § 3282) […]

Robert Kennedy Jr & Ron Paul Come Out Against Fauci & Gates

Posted Apr 11, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci MUST be stopped. Robert Kennedy, Jr., Chairman, Children’s Health Defense, has come out with a warning: “Vaccines, for Bill Gates, are a strategic philanthropy that feeds his many vaccine-related businesses (including Microsoft’s ambition to control a global vaccination ID enterprise) and give him dictatorial control of global health policy.”

It is true that India has broken funding ties with Bill Gates. The decision is seen as part of India’s broader clampdown on non-governmental funding which we should also adopt in the CDC, NIH, and WHO. Gates has dominated world health and has been using an authoritarian approach to force his agenda on the world. Now Former Rep. Ron Paul has also come out urging Trump to fire Dr. Fauci for he is a ‘fraud’ leading coronavirus response. Ron Paul, many may not realize, is actually a medical doctor. He has come out, and I 100% agree, Fauci must be terminated ASAP. Ron Paul wrote:

“Even the bad guys are admitting it, and that is they made these dire predictions so that they could go ahead and destroy peoples’ civil liberties and spend a lot of money and make up an excuse on why the stock market actually went down — all kinds of things by having this coronavirus event blown way out of proportion,”

Bill Gates Has Been Controlling [the] WHO

Posted Apr 12, 2020 by Martin Armstrong
We have a major crisis on our hands. Bill Gates is a VERY SERIOUS threat to not just the world economy, but to world peace.

He [Bill Gates] has been using a loophole that allows health organizations to appear to be government agencies but are not independent and have been actually controlled by Gates. You will see that 80% of the funding of WHO is not from governments, but from donations. Then you see that Gates is the largest donor after countries listed on their website. Behind the curtain, the WHO has been bullied and pushed around by Bill Gates according to various sources one who is even writing a book on the domination of the WHO by Gates.

Melinda Gates has been behind pushing digital currency and she has been addressing the G7 on the claim that this will empower women. Just unbelievable sophistry that digital currency will be better and create more jobs for women? She is also ANTI-Trump.

I have explained that Jeffrey Epstein was NOT a pedophile which is someone who is after children pre-puberty. I certainly would not have been able to visually distinguish between a girl who was 17 and one who is 18. So what is the point of seeking girls who are 16-17 and risk a criminal violation? To me, it has always smelled of a blackmail scheme. Get people involved who may or may not even know they are 17 v 18 and then use that as a bargaining chip for other things. Here Gates teamed up with Epstein, not once, but three times he went to his island. He was dealing with Epstein since 2011 and was looking at partnering with him where he would get a $30 million fee. So was Gates one of his targets? Or was Gates looking to use Epstein for a power-play blackmail scheme against others?

It is well known in among programmers that Bill Gates didn’t write the operating system which made Microsoft known as DOS. Gary Kildall (1942-1994) wrote CP/M, an operating system that ran on early microcomputers based on 8-bits. IBM either couldn’t or wouldn’t make a deal with Kildall. Bill Gates bought what became MS DOS from Seattle Computer Products for $50,000 and licensed it to IBM.

DOS was actually written by a 22-year old Tim Paterson (born June 1, 1956). How much of Kildall’s intellectual property he appropriated is a matter of some dispute. IBM later did make a deal with Kildall by some accounts after threatening to sue IBM because DOS infringed on his copyright. The early IBM PC was sold with both CP/M and DOS operating systems, but CP/M was sold at a much higher price. Many never were aware of the two systems. Most buyers simply chose MS DOS, which became the standard, or were steered toward MS DOS by IBM.

Gate’s reputation has always been cloudy. His co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen (1953-2018), wrote in his memoirs that Bill Gates is a ruthless schemer who demeaned his employees and conspired to rip off his business partner. Mr. Gates and Mr. Allen first became friends in 1968 over their Seattle high school Teletype machine, on which they wrote their first software together. Mr. Allen moved to Boston and Gates dropped out of Harvard University in 1975 so they could work on what would eventually become Microsoft.

The authors of “Primal Leadership” wrote in the Harvard Business Review some years ago that Gates was one of “those infamous corporate leaders who seem to have achieved sterling business results despite their brutish approaches to leadership.”

Microsoft founder Bill Gates stepped down in February 2000 as chief executive of Microsoft allegedly as part of the settlement with the Department of Justice in his battle in violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. Gates remained as Chairman of Microsoft with the new title of Chief Software Architect. He then claimed he wanted to return “to what I love most, focusing on technologies for the future.” This was an interesting explanation.

What led to this was on May 18th, 1998, the Department of Justice (DoJ) and the attorneys general of 20 different states filed antitrust charges against Microsoft to determine whether the company’s bundling of additional programs into its operating system constituted monopolistic actions. The suit was brought following the browser wars that led to the collapse of Microsoft’s top competitor, Netscape, which occurred when Microsoft began giving away its browser software for free.

Charges were brought against Microsoft to determine whether its bundling of additional programs into its operating system constituted monopolistic actions. Back then, there were rising concerns that it was impossible to compete against Microsoft and many alleged Gates was a ruthless businessman. The government case accused Microsoft of making it difficult for consumers to install competing software on computers operated by Windows.

Gates was accused of creative editing of video, twisting facts, and emails, but Microsoft still lost the case. The presiding judge, Thomas Penfield Jackson, ruled that Microsoft violated parts of the Sherman Antitrust Act, which was established in 1890 to outlaw monopolies and cartels. He found that Microsoft’s position in the marketplace constituted a monopoly that threatened not only the competition but also innovation in the industry. You could not invent a product for Microsoft would create a competitive and put you out of business. Judge Jackson also called for Microsoft to divide the company in half and create two separate entities that would be called baby bills. The operating system (MS DOS/Windows) would make up one half of the company and the software arm would make up the other.

Microsoft appealed citing the Judge was biased in favor of the prosecution. The appeals court overturned Judge Jackson’s decision against Microsoft. Instead of seeking to break up the company, the Department of Justice decided to settle with Microsoft. In its settlement, the DoJ abandoned the requirement to break up the company, in return, Microsoft agreed to share computing interfaces with other companies. The company saw its once invincible market share erode due to old-fashioned competition which allowed computers to finally explode after Gates’ control was demolished. This is what has been alleged was part of the unpublished deal that Gates himself would step down, which he interestingly allegedly did to avoid the breakup of Microsoft.

Bill Gates’ father was the head of Planned Parenthood. Many saw this as a covert means to justify abortion among minorities to reduce the population which he has been so concerned with which is why he has supported the Climate Change movement. Bill Gates in an interview said: “When I was growing up, my parents were almost involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating. At the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing. And almost treating us like adults, talking about that.”

Gates appears to be carrying out his father’s objectives. His wife Melinda Gates, who had three kids, is alleged to have embraced abortion as a means for women to be liberated. Of course, abortion is a tool for eugenics. Many know of the racist legacy of Margaret Sanger (1879-1966), the founder of Planned Parenthood, who once gave a talk to the KKK and helped promote the “Negro Project.” In her own words, “[Birth control] means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks— those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.” (NYT, April 8, 1923). To this day, 79% of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods (Map).

Few know that this project is continued on an international scale by the enormous wealth of Bill Gates. In 1965, the Rockefeller Foundation was a significant donor to the International Planned Parenthood Federation (Source). Today, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has spent billions on population control in Africa and throughout the Third World. Obianuju Ekeocha, author of Target Africa, wrote in her 2012 open letter to Melinda Gates:

“Amidst all our African afflictions and difficulties, amidst all the socioeconomic and political instabilities, our babies are always a firm symbol of hope, a promise of life, a reason to strive for the legacy of a bright future. So a few weeks ago I stumbled upon the plan and promise of Melinda Gates to implant the seeds of her ‘legacy’ in 69 of the poorest countries in the world (most of which are in Sub-Saharan Africa). Her pledge is to collect pledges for almost $5 billion in order to ensure that the African woman is less fertile, less encumbered and, yes, she says, more ‘liberated.’”

Bill Gates has targeted both Climate Change and the claim of gender equality, which is, interestingly, about women liberation not to have children. Of course, “gender equality” is all about reducing the population. Is Gates merely continuing his father’s work by changing the label? In the world of insurance, you buy fire, accident, and theft insurance. However, you do not buy “death insurance” because people saw it as bad luck. They changed the label to “life insurance” and suddenly everyone bragged about how much they had. Planned Parenthood has long had a racist undertone. Just change the label to “gender equality” and everything is good!

Bill Gates has taken over the world health issue as he allegedly ruthlessly he ran Microsoft. This man, I believe, has threatened civilization itself. We should be yelling to every politician in every country to (1) abolish any governmental agency from accepting any private donation AT ONCE! and (2) to launch an investigation into the connections with Gates that span the entire world. I may be risking my life even saying this – but we have a right to be free, not tagged and herded like cattle.

Inspector General Report Declassified Shows Democrats Funded Fake Steele Dossier

Posted Apr 13, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

Sens. Charles E. Grassley and Ron Johnson, both committee chairs and top investigators, said last week that since the Steele Dossier was funded by the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign, this means that the Democrats were actively responsible for spreading Russian disinformation, which plunged the country into political turmoil for much of the last three years. They are jumping on the Coronavirus scam and using this for political purposes.

We are in a downward spiral when it comes to politics. The risk of the Democratic Party splitting is rising. There are going to be reasonable Democrats who will start to distance themselves from the evil being masked by political rhetoric.

Limitation of the President & Have the States Violated the Constitution Imposing a Lockdown?

Posted Apr 14, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Can Trump reopen the economy at will?

ANSWER: There is no doubt that Americans have been getting a civics lesson as they turn to Washington for answers to the coronavirus crisis, but discover that their state governors have assumed far more control over what goes on in their daily lives than the constitution allows. It has been State and local authorities making decisions about shutting down businesses and allocating medical equipment to hospitals – not the President. They have merely listened to Bill Gates and the compromised Anthony Fauci whose recommendations are illegal.

This is what the “United States” meant that there was a separation of powers between federal and state. This is the system the founding fathers designed, though it seems anachronistic to many while people like Fauci have been the stooge for Bill Gates claiming this is a deadly disease that warrants we be locked-down as prisoners in our own homes without any legal authority under the Constitution.

It is the Commerce Clause in the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3) that governs this question. The Commerce Clause states that the United States Congress shall have power:

“[t]o regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes.”

The Supreme Court ruled in Swift and Company v. United States, 196 U.S. 375 (1905), that Congress had the authority to regulate local commerce, as long as that activity could become part of a continuous “current” of commerce that involved the interstate movement of goods and services.

My interpretation of this is simple. It is unconstitutional for any state to block interstate commerce. Consequently, the President has the executive power to issue a binding order to open up commerce and the states cannot legally resist that order for keeping the economy locked-down violates the Commerce Clause. Over the years, the meaning of the word “commerce” has been a source of controversy. The Constitution did not explicitly define the word. That has led to legal arguments back and forth […]

Reports are that the Swiss Also Locked Up A doctor for being Against the Coronavirus Fraud

Posted Apr 14, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

Stories are coming from Switzerland that a doctor, Thomas Binder, who has spoken out against the coronavirus fraud was arrested. It has been reported that he was brutally attacked by a Swiss SWAT team in his medical practice. He was arrested and taken to a psychiatric institution. Anyone who speaks out against the coronavirus is simply being arrested in some places in Europe. This is a shocking result that is unfolding across Europe. The question is WHY? This is not only Stalinistic, but crushing dissent must mean there is a hidden agenda. That appears to be the preparation for a new monetary system because they know this is collapsing. That is what the REPO Crisis was all about.

Why is WHO Demanding Sweden Lockdown? Because They Show The Lockdown Makes no Difference?

Posted Apr 15, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

It is very interesting that the death rate in Sweden is by no means excessive compared to any other Western country that has locked its citizens down. The only restrictions were on gatherings of 50 or more people, and advice such as over-70s being urged to stay at home. Swedish schools, shops, restaurants, and pubs all remained open. Nevertheless, The World Health Organization (WHO), has been insisting that Sweden lock its people down. The corruption behind the WHO and how it is being dominated by Bill Gates is a matter of record. Sweden is demonstrating to the world that the lockdown is absurd and it has NOT prevented anything. Sweden is treating its population with respect, unlike the rest of the Western powers.

The problem is very clear. Sweden is proving that the lockdown insisted by Bill Gates is nonsense and it has deliberately undermined the world economy, destroyed jobs, and is subjecting people to the loss of all privacy and liberty – but to what end? Is this a major socialist move to wipe out small business and then allow only state-run businesses or large corporations who donate to the Socialists for favored status to survive?

Something is just not right!

The Crisis in Agriculture

Posted Apr 15, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

What is taking place in agriculture as a direct result of this contrived virus pandemic is beyond contemplation. The agriculture industry can provide some insight on what’s going on. Wheat has rallied to 5870 during March, just poking through the broad uptrend channel from the Great Depression. There is a major crisis unfolding, in part, because some workers needed for harvest are locked down as in Europe and cannot move from Poland to Spain. This is a serious problem. Those who advocate this lockdown like Gates and Fauci are clueless when it comes to the ripple effect through the rest of the economy.

The climate has turned bitterly cold and then there was excessive flooding in 2019. The trade war with China did not help. Farmers were already in a weak position before this concocted virus scare that has been used to justify shutting down the economy for something that is far less deadly than the annual flu. Many farmers were already in serious debt because of low profits and high taxes back in 2019 before this virus scare. This is merely pushing many into bankruptcy.

Now we have many restaurants, the entertainment industry, travel from airplane to cruise lines all shut down. The demand for produce has been declining. Prices are declining as a direct result of a drop in demand. We can see that the price of tomatoes has been falling in 2020 due to this virus shut down. Some farmers can’t make a profit and have started to just plow their crops under rather than harvesting them simply because it’s less of a loss than trying to bring the crops to market and migrant workers are unavailable. This is only setting up the crisis ahead for a rise in agricultural products.

We can see that 2020 was a Directional Change and a turning point with high volatility which has indeed come to pass. If we see a sharp low here in 2020 and a collapse in our productive capability because some farmers cannot survive, the next high in prices should come in 2023.

COVID-19 Miracle Cure for All Other Disease Prevents Heart Attacks

Posted Apr 15, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

If you want to become a doctor right now you can become one without years of training in New York City. Just attribute all deaths to COVID-19 so Governor Cuomo can justify keeping everyone locked down in a desperate attempt to boost Democrats for the 2020 elections. It is astonishing how COVID-19 has become a miracle cure for all diseases. Nobody is dying of even a heart attack for the last two weeks. Just sneeze, and that is good enough to classify you with Coronavirus.

Meanwhile, in Germany, the first real study has revealed that only 0.37% of coronavirus infected people die from it. According to this, the death rate of the novel virus is only around 0.4%. Our sources in Italy were reporting that NOBODY was dying from Coronavirus alone. They typically had some other disease.

The media has threatened our liberty, our livelihood, and the national security of the nation with FAKE NEWS as always. Something must be done to stop these people from undermining our freedom and civil liberties worldwide.

The Propaganda & China

Posted Apr 16, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: RE China analysis Marty, It is so clear to me that you have not been exposed to the changing workforce and have always worked for yourself. How did I get laid off so many times? Jobs sent to China. We have been in an economic war with China for at least 2 decades with US corrupt politicians selling out the American people. We have run a huge deficit with China, not good for the US economy. Outsourcing our jobs, how is that good for Americans? Dianne Feinstein had a Chinese spy driver for 20 years ! I have taken the brunt of it being on the front lines of a changing workforce. You have not. Additionally claiming that somehow the economy of China is not communist is day dreaming. The CCP invests in companies and controls the people and the economy as much as they can. They have long range plans. They also manipulated their currency. They have concentration camps.. come on Marty. Come on… wake up. You cannot go through life saying human rights abuses don’t matter because the numbers using slave labor makes you a profit. Wake up please… you are being to me at least really naive about this topic. I hate to say that because you are brilliant, but for some reason your smarts are compromised on this issue because you are frankly compartmentalizing thing, a very male trait ( sorry ) whereas females tend to think wholistically. We are different that way. Please consider more broadly the entire China situation.

REPLY: Communism is where people do not own any property. China is no longer Communist, it is more of what you would define as a managed democracy that is perhaps authoritarian, which seems to be the direction we are heading. You should also point the finger at Washington. Roosevelt installed the payroll tax and Social Security. From the employer’s perspective, whatever tax you paid, they had to match. Then you add regulations for healthcare, etc., and the greater the burden, the more costly American labor became.

With everything government does, the justification for that instant may sound logical, but it never expires. Locking us down for a claimed virus is a new precedent and they will do this from here on out — a new power they get to play with. We are searched, x-rayed, and must remove our shoes to get on a plane since 9/11. With each crisis, we lose more and more civil liberties and human rights.

No Communist country would ever allow their people to be tourists. I had a friend whose family was split by the Berlin Wall. They let a woman go to her mother’s funeral in West Berlin provided they held her children hostage to ensure she would return. That is a communistic state. The people are just slaves and the state comes before everything.

While you may see it only as China, jobs domestically are being replaced by robots for the very same reason — taxes and rising healthcare costs that no politician will address. There is a common thread running through this which is the excessive cost of governments. They need more money so they just raise taxes without any regard for the impact on the people. Often taxes on air travel are equal to 50% of the ticket, which is why a lot of airlines are charging fees to cancel, bring bags, food, etc. for they are not subject to that tax. Above is the breakdown of taxes on your cell phone, which is typically 18% (New Jersey as an example but all states do the same).

It is a complex issue, but it is by no means just China, Germany, or Japan. Much of the problem has been the constant trend of raising taxes on labor which is giving the incentive to replace whatever jobs can be done by robots or self-service. When I park in a garage downtown, I pull in and the machine spits out the ticket. When I leave, the next machine takes the ticket and the credit card and I never see a person. They save that salary and all the costs of mandated healthcare.

Airports are becoming all self-service. In Frankfurt, the machine prints out your ticket. When you go to check your bag, you put it on another machine that then spits out the baggage tag. Then it moves your bag onto a conveyor with nobody there. If you have any problems, you then must go to the customer service counter.

As for human rights, the United States is one of the #1 violators. You have none when you stand before a judge in Federal Court. They have a 98-99% conviction rate that beats even Adolf Hitler’s notorious court that had only a 90% conviction rate. The United States has more people in prison than the rest of the world does – combined.

This anti-liberal attitude in law is a violation of human rights. If you are charged, you are PRESUMED GUILTY! There is no presumption of innocence. That is a lie and propaganda. I disagree with the Republicans on their appointments of judges. You will never imagine how many innocent people are in prison because of this policy.

I was tortured, thrown in a cell so hot your underwear was too much to wear, and then taken to a cell so cold that you could see your breath. As long as they do not leave a mark on your body, it’s not considered torture just like water-boarding. They seek to break people down mentally. They take pleasure in torturing people. You will never know evil until you look into the eyes of such prosecutors.

So do not listen to the propaganda that China violates human rights as if America treats everyone with respect and dignity. America is the biggest hypocrite you will ever encounter when it comes to pointing fingers at others for human rights. The same on trade. China and others have absorbed jobs because the cost of those jobs domestically became too much due to overregulation and taxes. It has never simply been to pay someone else $2 an hour v $10. You have also taxes on the corporations and the drive to increase dividends. It is a multidimensional issue.

EU Starting to Expose its Communist Agenda

Posted Apr 16, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

Margrethe Vestager, Executive Vice President of the EU and Commissioner for Competition, has spoken out that EU states should now nationalize companies in the fight against China. Accordingly, Vestager has revealed that the justification for now nationalizing industry, which was the goal of the Climate Change contingency, is to prevent domestic companies being bought by the Chinese. This entire coronavirus has been an organized plot to seize control of the economy by the socialists. This is where there has been a direct assault using the media in hopes of defeating Trump, the Netherlands, and Germany.

Marxism was not satisfied with killing 200 million the last time. Here we go again looking to reduce the population by anyone who disagrees with their Climate Change/Communistic agenda.

Trump Opening America Again

Posted Apr 16, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

[…]

I had to laugh when Trump used the very reports claiming 2 million Americans would die which was put out by Neil Ferguson from Imperial College which received donations from Bill Gates to flip their negativity back on the press. We did a great job, Trump said, and we are coming in with well under 100,000 deaths because he closed the borders. It was sort of a mental martial arts contest using the force of your opponent against them.

Shifting the burden back to the governors was a brilliant move. New York City, which under governor Andrew Cuomo just weeks ago was blaming Trump and pleading that it would need 40,000 ventilators to handle a projected flood of critically ill COVID-19 patients that never appeared, now says things are going so well New York is shipping hundreds of ventilators to other states. It’s always a question of who gets the blame.

Socrates was right. COVID-19 would peak the week of April 6th. Even back on March 11th, our cyclical models showed the peak would be April/May. This was not some personal opinion or guess. This was simply modeling the life-cycle of all viruses. People who were saying this could last for 18 months were doing so to support Bill Gates saying it would take 18 months for a vaccine that would be conveniently after the 2020 elections.

[…]

I have laid out under the Commerce Clause, there is absolutely NO authority for any governor to close down the economy of his state. There are conspiracy theories that Trump handed all authority to FEMA and they can run a dictatorship. Let me explain one thing: The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land. The Supremacy Clause of the Constitution of the United States (Article VI, Clause 2), establishes that the Constitution, federal laws made pursuant to it, and treaties made under its authority, constitute the “supreme Law of the Land“, and thus take priority over any conflicting state laws.

That means no matter what statutory authority Congress gave FEMA, it is unconstitutional if they ever tried to enforce such a dictatorship. Likewise, no state governor can issue any order or pass a statute that is contrary to the Constitution – PERIOD!

Just for the record, enforcing the civil rights actions against the states during the 1960s which were suppressing blacks, it was the Supremacy Clause which enabled the federal government to force civil rights. These journalists are outright wrong and they themselves are supporting Sedition by misrepresenting the Constitution.

[…]

Trump has absolute authority to reopen the country because there is NO Constitutional Authority to have ordered a lockdown, to begin with. This idea of flattening the curve is only a THEORY and there is no evidence that this would even work. It is no different than Keynesian Economics with Quantitative Easing which has failed. The attempt to flatten the curve CANNOT defeat the energy of any cycle. All you will do is prolong it. The likelihood of this returning in the fall is probably better than 90%. The real threat is once this power has been seized by governments and it remains unchallenged, it will be used again and again in the future.

Trump made it very clear, there was NEVER a bed capacity problem. He sent hospital ships to New York, but they were not used. He had the Army Core of Engineers build beds in stadiums – they were never filled. The entire theory we needed to be locked down because there were not enough beds was totally BOGUS!!!!! When is the press going to point this out? We have been lied to and why? Where is the journalist willing to tell the truth just once! This is the CDC’s own graph showed bed capacity was the justification for the lockdown.

Posted Apr 17, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: […] Your blog about the press destroying their own jobs and the last paragraph describing what may happen if this lockdown isn’t lifted before May 1st the models warn of a 13 year decline into 2032. That appears to be inevitable based upon the ECM and capital flow moving into the private sector. Not even European and Asian originating capital will want to invest in US Treasuries seeing less taxes being collected. European and Asian capital will flow into US equities as the ONLY safe haven. In a previous blog it was mentioned that Finland’s largest bank is prohibiting people from accessing their own security deposit boxes without a valid reason. The ECB is moving towards its own cryptocurrency. The US Democrats have put a placeholder for a US cryptocurrency in the latest Coronavirus aid law. Socrates is predicting Trump to win the upcoming election because COVID-19 will subside before the election and the Republicans & Trump will use it against the Democrats. Like you said though, what happens after Trump? Will the Democrats, Bill Gates, Hilary Clinton and NY Bankers have their way like they are doing during this COVID-19? They now know a means/method to herd the world population. Will we fall for it again? As you have said in the past, individuals try to learn from their past mistakes, but society is prone to repeat it.

REPLY: I hope we do not go gradually into that darkness of tyranny. I fear most of all for my family and what I will leave behind at the close of my life. So I rage against the dying light of freedom, not for myself, but for my legacy. All I can say is I pray for civilization, for this lockdown is the first step toward tyranny and we are slipping gradually into that darkness where the tree of liberty withers and dies. This is the true price of socialism. It is never about the people, it is only about empowering the state. When freedom is lost, it can never be restored by peaceful means if history is a witness to the folly of human society. Liberty once lost is lost forever.

There have been bloodless revolutions as was the case in Russia in 1991. That requires the military and the police to open their eyes and realize they are defending tyranny against their own families. If that can be accomplished, then the mighty fall without the arm of oppression.

World Health Organization Demanded Sweden Lock Down To Cover Its Own Fraud

Posted Apr 17, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

The New York Times and others are out in full force to defend Bill Gates, their savior of the world. They distort everything and try to pretend he is this wonderful man who only has our best interests at heart. They also refuse to address how the World Health Organization has carried out the greatest fraud perhaps in modern history and the links of the United Nations to the drive for Climate Change also go back to Bill Gates. What they do not want to talk about is how Sweden did not lockdown its economy and its viruses cases were no worse than the countries that destroyed their economies for this exaggerated virus.

The press refuses to expose the World Health Organization (WHO) which called for Sweden to take more action, telling CNN that it is “imperative” that Sweden “increase measures to control spread of the virus, prepare and increase capacity of the health system to cope, ensure physical distancing and communicate the why and how of all measures to the population.”

Note that the entire theory for the lockdown was that they agreed with Neil Ferguson of Imperial College, also a target for donations from the Gates Foundation, that 2 million Americans would die and we would not have enough bed space to accommodate the people. The argument of Gates and the WHO was there would not be enough bed space to accommodate everyone ill so that meant we had to shut the economy down (bringing CO2 to zero) and destroy jobs to reduce the need for bed space. There are soup kitchens appearing in places like Thailand for people have been pushed to the brink of starvation by Gates & the WHO losing jobs in third world economies.

Trump sent in the Army Core of Engineers and they constructed the proposed bed space which was never filled up. He even sent Navy hospital ships to New York which were not used. He sent so many respirators that now they are offering them to other states. None of the forecasts of Gates, his slew of funded organizations have every proven correct. The New York Times and the rest of the socialist media will never raise that point – EVER!

The WHO has tried to ignore Sweden where they did not lockdown everyone and the death rate was no worse than any other country and in fact. Sweden stands as a testament that this has been the greatest scam of all time which has used a virus to achieve the very same goals as Climate Change. The Gates Foundation has donated at least $1.5 billion to WHO. Why do American taxpayers need to hand them more money when Gates says jump and they ask how high? Gate’s number one favorite donation is Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance.

UNDER NO CONDITIONS should President Trump resume any support for WHO. All health organizations that want to pretend to be unbiased governmental agencies MUST stop taking private donations. That includes the CDC, NIH, and the WHO. Any university that accepts donations from the Gates Foundation should be PROHIBITED from providing any such studies whatsoever given (i.e. Ferguson) that they have ALL been wrong concerning this staged viral Plandemic (a more realistic term for what they have done).

Canada Proposing to Imprison anyone who Argues Against the Government & Bill Gates?

Posted Apr 17, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

Canada is showing just how ruthless the left can be. They are proposing to create criminal/civil prosecutions against anyone who disagrees with the government and Bill Gates. If you dare question the lockdown, they will throw you in prison? The left always turns Stalinistic. No matter what country, the left will always attack dissent and suppress all liberty and freedom along with human rights. They intend to classify “misinformation” as anything that disagrees with their political position.

Once upon a time, people risked their lives to flee Europe and seek freedom in the New World. That was a freedom of religion, political, and the right to own your own land wherein Britain it was long-lease. The tyranny which the Europeans fled has reemerged in what was to be the New World. The problem we now have is very clear – there is no other place to flee. Mars is not quite ready and even there the left will rear its head and seek to suppress those for its own personal gain. The left will never be satisfied for they are always seeking to take from others to make their own lives better. The only difference between a thief and the left is the control of the government to oppress others.

Apple Comes out with Cheap Phone to Help Government Track You

Posted Apr 18, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

Creating apps to track everyone is where Gates’ microchip insertions into our body come into play. Apple has announced the second generation of its cheaper iPhone SE as it tries to accommodate the new total surveillance post-coronavirus age of authoritarianism. Its new iPhone SE starts at $399, making it $50 cheaper than the previously most affordable model, the iPhone 8.

This new device may be only a 4.7-inch screen, but it will be a retina screen as in Minority Report. It will also have a touch ID, one 12-megapixel camera, and an A13 bionic chip as used in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. The device is the cheapest mobile phone ever developed from Apple to accommodate the need to track people for governments.

Gate’s Contraceptive Microchip to be Implanted into Women

Posted Apr 19, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

The contraceptive chip is to be implanted under a woman’s skin, releasing a small dose of levonorgestrel, a hormone. This will happen every day for 16-years and can be controlled using a wireless remote device. The project has been backed by none other than Bill Gates. The question I have is hacking. If it can be controlled remotely, then it should be also possible for it to be hacked like any computer to ensure someone never gets pregnant […]

At Last – Gates’ Objective is Revealed – Destroy Economy Relaunch without CO2

Posted Apr 20, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

SKY News Australia has reported the smoking gun. The UN-funded financial arm of the Paris Agreement has labeled the coronavirus an “opportunity” to raise funds for climate change action and “relaunch economies on low-emission, climate-resilient trajectories”. The extraordinary statements have been published in a document by the Green Climate Fund – an international organization with a US$10.3 billion budget. Bill Gates has been a major driver behind the Climate Change contingency.

The Green Climate Fund of the United Nations has written:

While COVID-19 is causing untold suffering, the international response to this unprecedented health crisis in modern times offers an opportunity to direct finances towards bolstering climate action. GCF will continue to make critical investments in climate-resilient water resource management, health care facilities, agriculture and livelihoods – all of which are essential to subduing and overcoming the pandemic. Similarly, we will step up our efforts to catalyse green investment to relaunch economies on low-emission, climate-resilient trajectories.

I have warned that this entire destruction of the economy made no sense. Nobody in their right mind would do such a thing – except the Climate Change people who have been obsessed with CO2. We now know Bill Gates’ true objective – Climate Change to crush the economy and relaunch without CO2.

Oil prices have collapsed as the lockdown continues and they have sought to wipe out the auto industry. They have even shut down CO2 production needed for beer and soda. There will be shortages of those products now. What will the lower classes whose favorite drink is beer do when they realize that CO2 is needed for that production?

The Climate Change Conspiracy to Destroy & Rebuild the Economy in their Vision

Posted Apr 20, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

The United Nations’ Green Climate Fund wrote: “The COVID-19 pandemic and the global response required to stem it shows the importance of acting together to solve unparalleled threats to people and our planet. The far-reaching impacts of COVID-19 are a stark reminder of the catastrophic implications the world faces if we don’t.”

Gates […] has admitted that there is no formula that if you lower CO2 to x you will get y temperature. There are plenty of studies that disagree with Gates. He refuses to even listen and assumes the effects will be bad, with no historical data whatsoever. There is NO formula to measure CO2 to predict the climate – PERIOD! Yet he has advocated destroying our economy to further his paranoia about Climate and has advocated reducing the population to achieve his goal.

[…]

We are facing a UNPRECENTED economic collapse on a grand scale without a full-blown investigation.

Is Biden for Real?

Posted Sep 4, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

[click for video clip]

I seriously question if Biden’s convention speech was manufactured, and I do not care that there were left-wing journalists there swearing it was all live. If that was really the case, then this clip after that speech is simply not plausible. Something is seriously wrong. Given the powers behind this election, from Gates to Schwab’s World Economic Forum pushing their Climate Change Great Reset, it is starting to appear that Biden is incapable of being president. That may be intentional, so they will have no resistance from a president to force their agenda on America.

[click for video clip]

We have the WHO saying we need to address climate change when Trump withdrew all funding, for they refused to respond to his questions. Now Gates is their #1 supporter. The WHO is about medical issues — not climate. This agenda is starting to be in your face, and the media will never report the truth.

[click for video clip]

We have Klaus Schwab, who is nothing more than an academic, publicly admitting that his World Economic Forum is in league with Gates and GAVI for vaccines.

[click for video clip]

And this makes sense with Pelosi against any debate and claiming in a public press conference don’t tell Joe Biden. This is completely absurd.

Something just does not smell right here. This is not Biden v Trump. There is something altogether very strange going on here.

Trump Should Appoint A Special Prosecutor to Investgate Bill Gates

Posted Apr 20, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

A petition to the White House calling for an investigation into Bill & Melinda Gate Foundation is absolutely NECESSARY!!!! Gates has taken a high profile on this demanding we remain locked down until everyone is vaccinated as he said on German TV. Even the CDC admits that the flu vaccine is at best 60% effective. Clearly, what Gates has been pushing would not be 100% guarantee either and then the flu vaccine has to be changed every year because viruses mutate.

Everyone whose business has been harmed by this lockdown should sign this petition. Perhaps if enough people do so, Trump will see that this can even become a campaign issue and that alone would give any politicians ammunition for the political battle.

(note the above linked petition attained the threshold requiring an official response from the Whitehouse by July 10, but I can’t find any such response)

The Truth About the Bogus Report to Start this Lockdown

The Cycle Behind COVID-19[SARS-CoV-2]

Posted Apr 22, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

I have reliable research I have not yet concluded but so far this COVID-19[SARS-CoV-2] could have been a human experiment. It appears to be like HIV insofar as it attacks the T cells and can penetrate them. These are the human cells that attack viruses. This is most likely why older patients are dying because they have fewer T cells as they grow older. This does not confirm any connection to the Wuhan lab for there have been such experiments carried out in various other places around the world. Therefore, this may damage other organs in older people including the lungs.

This still does not negate the exaggerated response of shutting down the world economy. Sweden has proven that lockdown makes no difference. The WHO and Gates have increased the risk of starvation and lowered the living standards of society as a whole. That poses a far greater threat going forward the longer the lockdown continues. The greatest plagues in human history have taken place also during solar minimums for this is when the climate turns colder and crops fail, increasing malnutrition, which in turn lowers the immune system enabling greater death tolls.

Therefore, this COVID-19 may spread like the flu, but it still does not appear to be as lethal during this season. That does not rule out a new improved version during the next flu season.

A client sent this in which is an interesting projection. Our own work has found that the cycle appears to be closer to 8.6 years when dealing with viruses exclusively. This is combining bacteria and viruses. Any way we look at this, there is a cycle to disease as well as to the economy and life in general.

If we look at just the viruses, the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak was first discovered in Asia in February 2003. The outbreak lasted approximately six months as the disease spread to more than two dozen countries in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia before it was stopped in July 2003. Therefore, cyclically, the timeline for most viruses remains the same and we warned that this new virus “should peak out in April/May.” There was the potential for a peak in the Southern Hemisphere at the latest by June/July since it likes the colder weather. I further wrote: “There is NO INDICATION that this will last longer than any other virus issue. For now, it will probably continue to expand into April/May before we see any top in the number of cases.”

When we look at MERS-CoV, it was during September 2012, when WHO had been notified of 2494 laboratory-confirmed cases of infection with MERS-CoV in the Middle East. The fatality rate was 34.4%. MERS-CoV appears to have come from an animal source in the Arabian Peninsula. Researchers have found MERS-CoV in camels from several countries. Studies have shown that direct contact with camels is a risk factor for human infection with MERS-CoV. In this incident, MERS was first identified in September 2012 and had subsided by June 2013. There was a second outbreak in 2015 in South Korea. The first patient of the outbreak developed symptoms on May 11, 2015. WHO and the South Korean government estimated that the outbreak ended in July 2015, after about two months. By the end, there were 186 confirmed cases and 38 deaths.

We will see COVID-19 reappear again in the next flu season of 2021/2022. If it mutates like influenza for each season, then it can perhaps become more deadly in the future. Cyclically, Socrates projected the April/May period for the peak and ideally the week of April 6th in most places. SARS came 17.2 years ago and MERS 8.6 years ago. Cyclically, there may be a resurgence in two years which would be in 2021/2022 flue season (2021.6 for a beginning).

Richard E. Nisbett (1941-) wrote a good book entitled, “The Geography of Thought, How Asians and Westerners Think Differently … and why.” He attributed his work to a Chinese student who said to him, “You know, the difference between you and me is that I think the world is a circle, and you think it’s a line.”

He goes on to quote him:

“The Chinese believe in constant change, but with things always moving back to some prior state. They pay attention to wide range of events; they search for relationships between things; and they think you can’t understand the part without understanding the whole. Westerners live in a simpler, more deterministic world; they focus on salient objects or people instead of the larger picture; and they think they can control events because they know the rules that govern the behavior of objects.”

Nisbett was indeed correct. Asian culture has instinctively understood the cyclical movement of TIME. In Western culture, we tend to think linearly, not dynamically. When we look at events, we try to reduce them to a single cause and effect. This thinking produces confusion when things do not follow that chosen path and false beliefs arise by not recognizing the world is a far more complex place. Things are never a single cause and effect. There is a hidden order behind everything that is far more complex than meets the Western eye.

Consequently, like climate change, the projections are always linear. There is no reconciliation with cyclical behavior despite the fact that absolutely everything in the universe functions cyclically right down to the beat of your heart to the brainwaves in your head. When you no longer have a brainwave, you are dead.

YouTube Removes Older Documentaries Showing Corruption at WHO


(click to view video)

Posted Apr 23, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

The censorship being imposed by Youtube, Facebook, and others trying to crush any resistance to being locked-down is astonishing. This documentary has been out for years. They are now reviewing anything that exposures the truth of the World Health Organization and the corruption that is systemic. We need to write to everyone in Congress and demand an investigation into WHO. If we do not do this, we have lost all our freedoms.

Taking this documentary down which has been out for years is a major warning of how we are entering an era indistinguishable from the old Soviet Union and Pravda – the Truth. Nobody removes conspiracy theories about aliens or alien abductions. So why remove anything that calls into question vaccines and the World Health Organization? I bet if anyone came out with a youtube post calling into question Bill Gates and his wife and what they are making from vaccines it would be removed.

The ONLY reason to remove anything that calls into question the WHO or vaccines and the truth of the coronavirus scam is that it is hitting too close to the real truth. They are counting on people being obedient to authority and willing to surrender all human rights because the mob acts like a herd of sheep waiting to be told what to do next.

I would love to see a REAL poll taken about who believes this virus on a week by week basis.

This COVID-19 has undermined the economy in a way where we will not return back to normalcy.

The media portrays CO2 as evil as it causes climate change, yet they never report that there is a coronavirus-driven CO2 shortage that threatens US food and water supply. We need CO2 to clean water. Without CO2, this threatens the supply of drinking water. CO2 is also used in soda and beer production. Yet, they cheer Bill Gates and his object to get to zero CO2.

[…] I find it just astonishing that there is a complete lack of common sense in representative government. They cannot continue to just subsidize people with no comprehension of where this ends. The deleveraging in the global economy is more than $100 trillion dollars. You cannot create enough money to even soften the blow. You would think that after the failure of Quantitative Easing since 2008 its utter failure to rekindle the economy, that a light would at least go off in someone’s head and they would ask: Why has this never worked?

What Gates & WHO Have Done to Third World Countries is Criminal

The press will not report what this lockdown has done worldwide. Third world countries are primarily service-oriented. These people have no savings and no unemployment insurance. There are now massive free food operations in Thailand to help people who have lost their jobs and are on the brink of starvation. This is the real news that the elitist leftist press will not cover because it exposes the irresponsibility of both Bill Gates, his Foundation, and the WHO with no regard to the dangers they have inflicted upon the entire world.

(And Thailand only has like 56 deaths out of a total population of 70 million. And that video doesn’t even begin to show the worst of the impoverishment and suffering in SE Asia from this)

Is the Lockdown A Violation of the Constitution?

Posted Apr 24, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

n Idaho, despite having a Republican Governor, the police have violated the human rights of a mother who took her too small children to a park and was arrested and handcuffed in from of her children in a playground. Sara Walton Brady, 40, of Meridian, Idaho, was arrested and handcuffed for allowing her children to play on climbing equipment at a town park. The Meridian Police Department had to respond with a public statement to justify what they did claiming she “was noncompliant and refused to leave after being given many opportunities, so she was arrested on one count of misdemeanor trespassing.”

There is recognized power inherent in government to impose civil confinement for mental incapacity. In Addington v. Texas, 441 U.S. 418 (1979) a mother filed a petition for her son’s indefinite commitment to a state mental hospital in accordance with Texas law. Her son had a long history of confinements for mental and emotional disorders. The jury found that appellant was mentally ill and that he required hospitalization, and the trial court ordered his commitment for an indefinite period. The state trial court had instructed the jury to determine whether, based on “clear, unequivocal and convincing evidence,” he was mentally ill and required hospitalization for his own welfare and protection or the protection of others. He appealed and contended that the trial court should have employed the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard of proof. The Supreme Court reversed and held that simply a “clear and convincing” standard of proof was all that was required by the Fourteenth Amendment in a civil proceeding even to commit an individual involuntarily for an indefinite period to a state mental hospital. Pp. 441 U. S. 425-433.

However, this decision does not truly apply when you are locking-down the entire population for they have not been afforded any due process right whatsoever in any court regardless of the standard of proof. Therefore, we must look further to find if there is any authority under the Constitution regarding quarantine lockdown orders.

We have to look historically as to what has the United States Supreme Court upheld with respect to such exercises of the states’ general police powers to protect public health through quarantines and other measures. The Supreme Court in Jacobson v. Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11, 25, 25 S.Ct. 358, 49 L.Ed. 643 (1905) upheld a Massachusetts law requiring vaccination against smallpox Id. at 39, 25 S.Ct. 358. The Court held that such a measure, enacted to protect public health, will not be struck down unless it “has no real or substantial relation to [that goal], or is, beyond all question, a plain, palpable invasion of rights” secured by the Constitution. Id. at 31, 25 S.Ct. 358. To uphold that law, the Court analogized to the unquestioned power to quarantine even an outwardly healthy individual entering the United States:

An American citizen arriving at an American port on a vessel in which, during the voyage, there had been cases of yellow fever or Asiatic cholera, he, although apparently free from disease himself, may yet, in some circumstances, be held in quarantine against his will on board of such vessel or in a quarantine station, until it be ascertained by inspection, conducted with due diligence, that the danger of the spread of the disease among the community at large has disappeared.

Id. at 29, 25 S.Ct. 358. Courts facing similar public health issues have recognized that the authorities possess similarly broad discretion.

Similarly, the Supreme Court also upheld quarantine laws in

[…]

Some courts have indeed struck down quarantine orders as well, however, when they were found to be arbitrary and unreasonable in relation to their goal of protecting the public health. In Jew Ho v. Williamson, 103 F. 10 (C.C.D.Cal.1900), the court found that sealing off an entire section of San Francisco to prevent the spread of the bubonic plague was “unreasonable, unjust, and oppressive.” Id. at 26. Such an overbroad order, the court declared, was “not in harmony with the declared purpose” of preventing the spread of the disease. Id. at 23.

In another case, the court also found the order was beyond the power of government and was thus of similar concern in In re Smith, 101 Sickels 68, 76, 146 N.Y. 68, 40 N.E. 497 (1895). There, the New York Court of Appeals rejected the blanket quarantine of individuals who refused vaccination, when there was no reason to believe they had been infected or even exposed to that disease.

Building on the legal principles, it can be reasonably argued that the initial decision to quarantine the entire society or to even demand worldwide vaccination as Bill Gates has been demanding, is beyond the power of government. This clearly bears no real or substantial relation to the protection of public health, and it is obviously arbitrary and oppressive. At a minimum, a complete quarantine of society shutting down all commerce is arbitrary and oppressive.

There is not even clear and convincing evidence that a woman simply taking her two young children to play on swings threatened either society or the lives of her children. In Idaho, there were 1,766 cases in total with only 51 Deaths. The total population of Idaho was 1.7 million in 2019. Locking down the entire state for such a tiny fraction of the population testing positive was a violation of her Civil Rights actionable under 42 U.S.C. § 1983.

Hospitals Are Empty & Going Broke As Normal Healthcare has been Suspended

Posted Apr 24, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

The lockdown was justified under the theory that Hospitals did not have the capacity to take care of the millions of people who would be struck down by the rapid coronavirus. All of that justification to lock down the nation never materialized. The ramifications have now turned to a denial of healthcare for the regular population and now doctors and medical staff are facing being laid off because normal health services are shut down. I personally could not even see a dentist because they were told to shut down by the American Dental Association.

Ironically, now hospitals are in danger of going bankrupt. We were told that we had to flatten the curve because there were not enough bed spaces. Then they did the subtle switch and the lockdown was justified until COVID-19 was eradicated. The interesting thing is how many institutions are sending us various materials because mainstream media will not cover it when it goes against their position of maintaining this lockdown. They are endangering our lives for political nonsense by refusing to report the truth.

Here is a letter from the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association to Governor Northam asking that these emergency orders preventing healthcare for normal people be terminated. Where the justification was to protect public health, this lockdown is now threatening public health and the leftist media refuses to report the truth.

The Press is Deliberately Trying to Hurt People for Political Change?

Posted Apr 25, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

People are starving because of this nonsense of locking down the entire nation. Many live paycheck to paycheck. The leftist media could care less. The total population in Florida is 21.48 million people. The total cases were 30,533 with 1,046 deaths. This is about one-third of the death rate from the flu.

2018 	– 	3,082
2017 	– 	3,040
2016 	– 	2,807

Why is the media so intent upon keeping people locked down? Many just see this as the leftist papers refusing to tell the truth and as a result, this is all just political. I would understand if we were facing some serious diseases that killed 30% of the population. This comes out to 0.0000498%. The number of people who die from car crashes in Florida last year was 3,224.

We are facing an exaggerated media storm intent upon hurting people and destroying their jobs in hopes of overthrowing Trump. Plain & simple! The press should be held accountable!

California ER Doctors Speak Out

California ER Doctors Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi

This is the same information we are getting from around the country. Hospitals are empty and unless this lockdown is lifted, we will actually see doctors being laid off because there is nobody there and normal healthcare has been suspended. The real public health crisis is the DENIAL of regular healthcare. I have had friends and family whose surgeries were postponed indefinitely.

[…]

Benjamin Franklin once said that “those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” The data from this virus failed to show that there is a lethal microbe that warrants shutting down the economy. The infection rate deaths of even 202,832 out of more than 7.5 billion does not warrant destroying civilization, people’s livelihood, and wiping out their pensions. Third world countries have been brought to the brink of starvation.

These people who have turned the virus into a political weapon are fulfilling our model on the war cycle. This is not something I wanted to see be correct. This lockdown will turn to violence. You cannot push society this far and the elitists looking to just win elections in the United States and to Federalize Europe are willing to sacrifice the people for personal gain. The American politicians show no sign of remorse for ever sending boys to fight foreign wars for their political machinations. And people ask why civilization is in the Sixth Wave?

Whistleblowers

Posted Apr 26, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

People who stand up to the overwhelming corruption that has seized control of our lives through the offices of government are demonized, arrested, killed, or thrown in prison on charges that make no sense and they are always denied a trial.

Michael Mahon Hastings (1980–2013) was a journalist who was a vocal critic of the Obama administration, Democratic Party, and surveillance state they created. He called it a “war” on journalism which is one reason many see the leftist press seems to only support the Deep State in their attempt to overthrow Trump and always supports the exact opposite of what Hastings was trying to report. The leftist press is always now against the people advocating the surrender of our rights. This has gone way beyond simple liberal v conservative politics. This was an all-out war on journalism and they have surrendered.

Hastings was most likely murdered. His last story was entitled: “Why Democrats Love to Spy On Americans“, which was published by BuzzFeed on June 7, 2013. The day before the crash, Hastings emailed friends that he was being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Hastings said that he was “onto a big story”, that he needed to “go off the radar”, and that the FBI might interview them.

WikiLeaks announced that Hastings had also contacted Jennifer Robinson, one of its lawyers, a few hours prior to the crash. According to the LA Weekly, Hastings was preparing a report on the CIA at the time of his death which may have been to the unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens domestically. His widow said that her husband’s final story was a profile of CIA Director John O. Brennan.

What is most interesting is that it is well known that your car can be hacked and taken over remotely. He drove into a tree at top speed and was killed. On the day of the crash, Hastings’ neighbor Jordanna Thigpen, reported that he came to her apartment after midnight and urgently asked to borrow her Volvo. He told her he was afraid to drive his own car. Nevertheless, Thigpen refused to allow him to use her car.

The FBI originally released a statement denying that Hastings was ever under investigation by the agency. Then documents surfaced that proved they lied to the public, as they always do. The FBI file on Michael Hastings and its attachments (totaling 21 pages) was finally released to the public on September 24, 2013. It is highly doubtful they ever released the incriminating documents.

Even Jeffrey Epstein, who was not a whistleblower but probably a blackmailer, posed way too much of a threat to everyone who was influential. He was certainly not a pedophile which is molesting children pre-puberty. He was taking girls 16 and 17 to most likely entrap various people where he could use that info for political blackmail. The list of influential people in his circle was amazing. There was NO WAY he would be allowed to go to trial. He was unquestionably murdered.

I was thrown into the same cell as Jeffrey Epstein. They throw you there to ensure you cannot make phone calls. They isolate you from the world. In my case, I believe they paid another inmate to kill me. I was in a coma in the hospital for several days, but I survived, no doubt to their dismay.

Europe & The Virus – An Economic Disaster

Posted Apr 27, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

There is a clear risk that the EU could break up when the very foundation was intended to provide free movement and move more in the direction of the United States of Europe. The free movement has come to an end, and even Merkel has warned that social distancing has come to stay in Europe for a long time.

In Portugal, Prime Minister António Costa has warned that normality will not return until a vaccine is available to the general public following Bill Gates. This is despite the fact that even the American CDC bluntly states that vaccines for the flu have been at best 60% effective and sometimes only 19% effective. Prime Minister Costa said May and June should be “months of transition towards a gradual de-escalation, with the conscience that de-escalation does not mean, for a long time, returning to normality.” It is very curious as to why this policy has claimed that vaccines will cure the disease when they will not.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez also said that the return to normality “will be slow and gradual, because it has to be secure.” He has previously warned that only a vaccine would provide a path back to normality.

France’s President Emmanuel Macron has also said that strict social distancing measures will remain in place and the borders closed until May 11th and that there would be no swift return to normality. “We will eventually prevail but we will have several months to live with the virus.” Macron has warned that the European Union faces a “moment of truth” as it tackles the devastating economic fallout from the crisis. Clearly, Macron has been playing a game of poker to try to force the Netherlands and Germany to abandoned fiscal conservatism and adopt the unlimited printing of money. With the huge anti-government protests of the Yellow Vests, Macron has been using the virus to suppress protests and has been demanding that Apple allow his app to track where people meet. This is not for the virus but to undermine the Yellow Vest movement.

In Italy, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte addressed parliament saying: “We have to maintain and respect, on all levels, the measures of social distancing and promote the general use of individual protective equipment until there are vaccines and treatments available.”

There is clearly the intention to use this virus for structural changes in Europe to eliminate austerity. By keeping people locked down, they know they are destroying the economy, but they hope to forge a generalized Europe that will simply print money to keep the European dream alive.

Now both Germany and Sweden are informing citizens not to take normal summer holidays due to the coronavirus crisis. That will wipe out the tourism industry in Southern Europe. There will still be a serious question about intercontinental travel between Europe and America. This warns that Americans might also refrain from visiting their #1 destination – Italy.

Is the Virus Being Exploited to Justify the Federalization of Europe?

Posted Apr 27, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

The head of the Institute for the World Economy believes that sooner or later tax increases must be considered in order to cope with the corona crisis. There is absolutely no question that this coronavirus will be used to raise taxes dramatically to cover the revenue losses that those in power created with their draconian measures. Many banks in Europe, suffering from bad loans dating back to the 2008 crisis, are now unwilling to provide emergency loans to small businesses. The economic devastation of the European economy is just totally insane. The self-employed are facing financial ruin and the economic activity will collapse to the Great Depression-era level if not worse.

The decision of the leaders in the European Union just defies common sense. One must ponder whether they are really this stupid, or is this deliberately being used to force their long-awaited dream of justifying the generalization[federalization] of Europe.

CEO of Youtube Susan Wojcicki Vows to Remove Anything that Contradicts the WHO

Posted Apr 28, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

YouTube has removed the video of the two California Doctors demonstrating the level of censorship surrounding this virus has reached Stalinistic levels. We have learned that YouTube is part of the conspiracy against the people so we make copies because of this censorship design to suppress the truth and support FAKE NEWS. Previously, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki told CNN that the company would ban any video content that contradicted World Health Organization recommendations. Wojcicki is supporting Bill Gates & the WHO against the people and preventing our American right to freedom of speech. She obviously supports Stalinistic censorship. She has no right to violate the civil rights of all Americans and since the WHO is a quasi-governmental organization, she is now involved in what can be criminal activity in violation of the Civil Rights Act.

As I have said, nobody removes videos about alien abductions. The ONLY reason to remove this is to prevent the truth – not to remove fake news for that is what Wojcicki supports by removing dissent which is part of the basic rights in a free society under Democracy.

Nurse Speaks out That People Are Being Murdered in Hospitals

(Google censored the revealing video, but I and many others downloaded a copy)

Posted Apr 29, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

This Corona Pandemic is clearly being orchestrated insofar as the worse possible outcome will be the result. There are practical solutions and even here we are finding some hospitals are directed not to provide the malaria drugs simply because they were recommended by Trump. There are many doctors coming out and they are being retaliated against. People are being put on ventilators simply so they do not spread the disease and this is leading to death. My first son died. He was premature and they put him on a ventilator which exploded his lungs. This girl is clearly a nurse for she is using common medical terms that the average person does not know and she does not know how to communicate those terms to the average person.

Are Ventilators Killing People in New York City?

This Nurse’s video has gone viral and has been picked up around the world. As I stated, my first son who was born prematurely died on a ventilator because it forced too much air into his lungs and caused them to burst. Where people are not put on ventilators the death rate is much lower. This has been picked up even down under. No mainstream newspaper will dare investigate in the USA.

Ventilators Kill

Posted Sep 3, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

COMMENT: […] Having taught medical folks at all levels( medical students, residents, fellows and practicing physicians), this makes me feel sick

[…]

REPLY: I do not think people realize how dangerous it is to be put on a ventilator. Here the headline was: “A NYC Coronavirus Patient Died After Her Ventilator was Set Too High Under the Care of Inexperienced Medical Residents.” My first son died on a ventilator at Children’s’ Hospital in Philadelphia for the very same reason. It burst his lungs. You would think that if a car can now parallel park, why can’t a ventilator sense when someone is incapable of accepting that much air?

Hospitals are DANGEROUS. They killed my mother, as the doctors refused to release her, always finding one excuse or another, and kept her in bed for weeks until they weakened her to the point that she did not have the strength to walk again.

They threw me into a COVID wing and said I needed two negative tests to be discharged. I received one test before and I told them I was leaving, but they said that my insurance would not pay the bill. I said I did not care, I would not stay there for two tests because they knew they were invalid anyway. I told them I would leave and they would have to call the police and shoot me in the back if they wanted me to stay. They finally administered the second test and I walked out.

A friend had a baby in a Philadelphia hospital. They tested the mother and said her test was positive. They took the child away at birth and she never saw him. They finally gave her another test and it was NEGATIVE. They had to return her child.

Hospitals are trying to create monopolies and they are in this for the money. The first time my mother was in a hospital, they released her to rehabilitation. That doctor changed all her medicine and nearly killed her. During her next stay in the hospital, they pulled the same shit. My sister looked at this woman asking again if they would release her to rehab. She asked this woman, “If she was your mother, would you send her here?” The woman could not answer but silently shook her head — no.

The entire COVID scam is enriching hospitals beyond belief. They have financial incentives to keep you and to put you on a ventilator. I even question their claimed data that blacks are more susceptible to COVID. The government pays 100% of people without insurance as long as the hospital claims it is COVID. Do they really have COVID or are they just milking the system?

How Could Socrates Forecast Food Shortages in the Cycle Years in Advance?

Posted Apr 29, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: Marty; You were the only one to forecast this would be a commodity cycle driven by shortages. How can your computer forecast such things like this shortage years in advance? They are warning we will face serious meat shortages when Bill Gates was investing in meat substitutes. This is falling within his whole scheme of climate change just using the virus instead of Greta.

ANSWER: I am not entirely sure. Yes, it is true that Bill Gates and Leonardo DiCaprio joined forces, not just in climate change, but in promoting meat substitutes because cattle eat grass and emit CO2. It will take more time to analyze how Socrates put this all together. What I can say is that it was able to forecast wars, because those who knew a war was about to begin moved money in advance. The computer would pick up the shifts, but it could not say who was moving the money or why. After watching the pattern repeatedly, it became clear they would move capital ahead of such events. Obviously, if there was the likelihood of war between China and the USA, China would seek all US debt in advance.

I know for a fact that there were select individuals who sold all stocks and bonds in January. I also know it was ahead of the news and it was because of the virus. Therefore, advanced knowledge existed. That does not mean the virus was planted. I also believe based upon evidence that the virus existed during the previous flu season. To sell stocks and bonds and move to cash implies knowledge that debt would have to be expanded dramatically, so you certainly do not want government debt.

Socrates had forecast this cycle would be the commodity cycle built on the rise in prices due to shortages rather than an economic boom. I will run studies to try to determine how it made that forecast in its entirety. Collectively, monitoring everything in the world, Socrates sees things that humans simply cannot put together in their minds for there are too many variables. Additionally, 2015.75 was the peak in government and the start of Big Bang in the debate crisis that will take us into 2028, after which debt may simply no longer exist. It projected the War Cycle would begin turning up in 2014, which was also the combined forces of both civil unrest and international conflict. It also had forecast that someone like Trump would win in 2016, and the risk that the Democratic Party would split between radical Socialists and more conservative middle of the road Democrats.

In other words, it was projecting across many models that from 2014 heading into 2032 that the world we were entering would be nothing like it once was. There have been groups like the goldbugs who have preached the collapse of the dollar and hyperinflation since 1971. Being wrong in that score for 60 years does not bode well for timing. It is also why they have been largely ignored and seen as wearing tinfoil hats. Getting the timing right is a critical factor for people who have long assumed an increase in the supply of money must decline its value. They never understood the difference between the currency of the dominant empire and that of a peripheral economy.

We have another nurse coming out and confirming that people are being left to die in New York City in an apparent attempt to raise the death toll for political motives. It appears that Trump is afraid to fire Fauci because the press will trash him, despite the fact that doctors are coming out and warning that this is deliberate murder and NOBODY is doing anything. The Justice Department MUST send in a special prosecutor NOT FROM NEW YORK to investigate these hospitals and what is going on.

Every source I have has been screaming that this is all orchestrated for political purposes. This is an attempt to force the climate change agenda by shutting down the economy under the threat of a virus that is no worse than the flu. They want to scare the hell out of everyone to make sure they achieve their goal of destroying jobs and redesigning the world economy in the vision of Bill Gates’ zero CO2 world. There are plenty of questions, no answers, and NO INVESTIGATIONS!

Merkel Revealed this is About Climate Change

Posted Apr 30, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

Little by little, the truth of this contrived coronavirus crisis is emerging. It has always been about forcing climate change agendas. They knew they were losing, even after exploiting a 16-year-old girl. This ruthless agenda to deliberately destroy the world economy was the info I received from behind the curtain. There were people in the climate change arena who sold all stocks and bonds in January because they were going to exploit this virus into a global pandemic. In the United States, they have succeeded in throwing 50 million people out of work. Applying for unemployment benefits was designed to be complicated. After six weeks, people were just being denied. They hoped the people would vote Trump out of office in November, and then totally destroy the US economy so it could be rebuilt with ZERO CO2, which is impossible.

In Germany, Merkel has come out and admitted that she wants to combine the task of helping companies recover from the pandemic with the challenge of setting more incentives for reducing carbon emissions. She is willing to allow companies to fail if they do not believe in climate change. This is really climate change by sheer tyranny.

The Press’ Conspiracy to Overthrow our Way of Life Exposed?

Posted Apr 30, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

The Washington Times has come out with the story which is inevitable: COVID-19 turning out to be huge hoax perpetrated by media

All my sources have been saying this from the very beginning. Trump needs to get off his ass and start defending the Constitution and the entire world against these people who failed in using a 16-year old girl to push their Climate Change in a dictatorial manner denying the people any right to vote whatsoever. They were pushing governments to act in a dictatorial manner change laws, shutting down car production, and even trying to outlaw short flights in Europe.

They do not rely on science, but on the distorted theory that is simply all linear based failing to understand there are cycles to everything – including climate.

[…]

They have exploited a young girl who has become so used to the attention and had depression problems, to begin with, all to further their agenda. How will she react as people are quickly forgetting her because they switched the narrative from Global Warming, then Climate Change, to now the trumped-up version of the Black Plague? Just over 1,000 people have died in Florida and most that was probably really the flu since they do not have to confirm with a test. There are over 3,000 who die each year in car accidents. What’s next? Outlaw cars?

[…]

Because of the vast number of people who are NOT covered by unemployment insurance because they may work part-time jobs, our model shows that we have exceeded 50 million of true unemployed people out of a workforce of about 164 million rather than just 30 million who applied. We are already back to Great Depression levels but it took 3 years to reach 25%, not 2 months.

The distinction between full and part-time did not exist in 1929 to account for the 25% unemployment rate!!! These people have a right to a massive class-action lawsuit against the Gates Foundation. NEVER in recorded history has the entire population been quarantined. Gates has NO BASIS to support that solution. It was his objective which fit perfectly with closing down the economy to achieve his Zero CO2. This was the plot of some dictator out of a James Bond movie.

The sheer magnitude of the damage that has been unleashed on the world population is unprecedented in human history. This has been a plot up there with ethnic cleansing except it is not about a particular race or trying to eliminate everyone except a single breed, but to attack the way human society itself functions and evolves. Ironically, Gates may not believe in cycles, but his scheme came right in on time with our Revolution Cycle which was due here in 2020 and has been the driving force of the Marxists since their first attempted revolution in 1848.

This Climate Change has been merged with the Marxists. They have agreed to work together to achieve power, then they would only turn against each other in the end. They’re back! Will this be the hallmark of what we face going into 2032?

The inevitable battle between Good & Evil?

The Marxists simply refuse to allow others to live in peace. There is no such thing as human rights in their vocabulary. They quash dissent and have Youtube in their pocket to suppress the truth along with other social media platforms. They believe they have the right to oppress everyone because they cannot tolerate someone else having anything they do not and they do not believe in a democratic process but seek to oppress the people and feed them with FAKE NEWS to brainwash people into surrendering all their freedoms.

It would be a nice idea to split the country and they all go to one side and tax each other to death. We tried that. That is why our families left Europe to go to a new world to pursue happiness and freedom. The problem is, the Supreme Court has never simply ruled that Equal Protection of the Law must also extend to class. You should not lose your rights simply because you make more than the other guy.

I still firmly believe that there is a viable class-action lawsuit against progressive tax rates which only divides the people and allows the politicians to exploit hatred and class warfare. This violates also the Freedom of Religion since it violated the Ten Commandments. If we cannot get this decision out of the Supreme Court, then I fear there will be no resolution but a violent confrontation. That may be inevitable. The Supreme Court decision Dred Scot that rules that negros had no constitutional rights tried to stop the American Civil War. That backfired. We may be in a similar position. If the left lost in court, they would probably only become outright violent.

Typos On Deaths Intentional or Just Typos?

The flu deaths in 2015 were about 2500 whereas COVID is claimed to be about 1300. Then on top of that, the Swiss government reported the death of a 9-year-old girl due to COVID.

This is not providing very much comfort when they point the finger at anyone who says this is all nonsense as a right-wing conspiracy nut. As soon as they start labeling people, it is a sign that as always, if you cannot address the message, attack the messenger.

Can a Vaccine or Virus Alter People’s Beliefs – Crime Against Humanity?

Posted May 1, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

[…] Given the science and the efforts at genetically engineering viruses, it is not beyond question that a virus could be engineered to do something very unpleasant. There is no concrete evidence that even there is a God Gene. The theory centers on the idea that if there is such a gene, then it could be altered by a vaccine or a genetically engineered virus. I would suspect that if it could be altered, they would probably do it with a virus rather than some mandatory vaccine. Still, I would not accept a vaccine from Bill Gates because his agenda is inconsistent with his support of Climate Change.

Exactly what is Gate’s agenda? He is not a medical doctor, an economist, and even admits he has no idea about economic history, he is not a scientist on climate, and he never wrote the program DOS that made Microsoft – he bought for peanuts. He has basically shut down meat production but conveniently has investments in meat substitutes. In fact, Bill Gates and Leonardo DiCaprio joined forces, not just in climate change, but in promoting meat substitutes because cattle eat grass and emit CO2.

Gates has huge investments in vaccine companies. If he vaccinates the entire world and made just $1 from each person, that $7.5 billion. This is a huge violation of the Securities Exchange Act – he has major conflicts of interests and if I did that without disclosing my conflicts I go to jail for 20 years.

Gates obviously has scared the hell out of people running around TV worldwide advocating lockdown and then justifies his actions saying people do not want to leave their homes. He has destroyed more jobs than any invader in history, has set in motion massive food shortage which may help his reduction in population for rebuilding a ZERO CO2 environment. He has no respect for democracy nor how he has destroyed people’s pensions […]

Spike in Deaths Doesn’t Match Viral Spread — Was Artificially Induced

Additionally, at the 18 minute mark Dr. Andrew Kaufman discusses the problems with the testing. Dr. Kaufman also discusses that autopsies have been explicitly banned! And he reiterates (his key point from his prior videos) that there’s no sufficient, statistical slamdunk that proves that SARS-CoV-2 causes any specific disease — correlation even if the RT-PCR testing is not fraudulent doesn’t prove causation of illness! Damnit.

Also he explains that the sequencing of the SARS-CoV-2 genome was never done — instead it’s bogus computer modeling as meaningless as analogously Neil Ferguson’s inane model. And that the true false-positive-rate (FPR) is 100%!

At the 50 minute juncture he mentions the status correction process for opting-out of the system, c.f. also.

Nothing is Based on a Verifiable Gold Standard of Purified Virus

COVID19 PCR Tests are Scientifically Meaningless raises the point I discovered in my research which is that for example the sensitivity and specificity testing seems to be based on samples provided by a central authority (e.g. the WHO), so nothing can be trusted at all. If the unbased specificity is hosed then the FPR can be 80+%:

Further, the PCR test for coronavirus can return false positives in up to 80% of cases, so it’s entirely possible the majority of these deaths never even had the virus.

Scientists Have Utterly Failed to Prove that the Coronavirus Fulfills Koch’s Postulates.

There Is No Virus – The Rooster in the River of Rats

“No one has died from the coronavirus”

A high-profile European pathologist is reporting that he and his colleagues across Europe have not found any evidence of any deaths from the novel coronavirus on that continent.

Dr. Stoian Alexov called the World Health Organization (WHO) a “criminal medical organization” for creating worldwide fear and chaos without providing objectively verifiable proof of a pandemic.

Another stunning revelation from Bulgarian Pathology Association (BPA) president Dr. Alexov is that he believes it’s currently “impossible” to create a vaccine against the virus.

He also revealed that European pathologists haven’t identified any antibodies that are specific for SARS-CoV-2.

Non-Influenza Illness Spreads Every Year!

Viruses have never been proven to exist as causative agents of any disease

C.f. the videos entitled “What Really Makes You Sick #1 With Dawn and David” and also part #2 as well.

Dr. Andrew Kaufman discusses with authors who wrote an extensive book on why viruses have never been proven to exist (never fulfilled Koch’s postulate requirements), that even the Spanish Flu was likely not caused by a virus and was instead a man-made phenomenon of illness coinciding with 4 years of intense war in Europe. Even Armtrong has noted that the pandemic cycle seems to correspond with the war cycle. Apparently man causes the pandemic cycle. The Spanish Flu was apparently caused by numerous factors such as bacterial infections due to soldiers moving around the globe so much, living in close quarters, living in fox holes, and a massive vaccination campaign and use of aspirin lead to asthma and autoimmunity analogous to the Gulf War Syndrome.

Also note how Trump has been unwittingly doing the bidding of the evil scheme.

  1. He sequestered manufacturing to produce massive numbers of ventilators to murder people with.

  2. He is funding and pushing for the massive vaccine campaign.

Fucking idiot.

Oh and remember it is named the Spanish Flu because only in Spain was the media allowed to report about the widespread illness at that time. Perhaps the powers-that-be in the rest of the involved nations did not want their war efforts disrupted by inconvenient facts of rising illness.

COVID Tests are Deliberately Being Used for Political Purposes

Posted Jul 22, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

There is MASSIVE fraud taking place in COVID-19 reporting, which is clearly occurring for political purposes and should be declared a criminal act. I know people who signed up to be tested but never received a test because the line was too long. They subsequently were told they tested POSITIVE when they never were tested. Then people were recorded as POSITIVE when they only tested to see if they had antibodies.

During the Panic of 1869, the government managed to crash gold from the $162 level (reached during the Jim Fisk era), and the US Treasury deliberately used the same tactic to force gold lower. The US Secretary of the Treasury George Sewall Boutwell announced that the federal government had made $4 million of its gold reserves available for trading. This was an excessive amount, which they did not actually have at the time. Nevertheless, the announcement broke the back of the gold ring and prices collapsed. Only later did the Treasury admit that they had made a “mistake” in the amount of gold that would be released in their press statement. Instead of $4 million, the amount was actually only $400,000. Real or not, the statement by the US Treasury caused gold to collapse abruptly, bringing the price from $162 to $133 within 15 minutes. This is the very same tactic being used with COVID. The fake numbers get the headlines, and then the revision is never noticed. They accomplish the intended political impact, and nobody is ever held accountable.

Tanzania's President Blames Fake Positive Tests In The Spike In Coronavirus Cases


(click to view video)

Posted May 11, 2020 by Eyder Peralta

Tanzania's president John Magufuli, who holds a doctorate in chemistry, is denying a spike in the country's coronavirus cases, claiming that positive COVID-19 tests are fake.

[…]

PERALTA: He said he had samples taken from a goat and a sheep and a bird and a papaya and had them labeled with human names. They were sent to Tanzania's National Laboratory.

(SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING)

MAGUFULI: (Speaking Swahili).

PERALTA: The papaya and others tested positive, he claimed - proof his labs were falsifying positive test results to sabotage Tanzania. He went on to say that he had ordered an herbal cure being pushed by the president of Madagascar.

The leftist disinformation site Snopes of course lies to try to discredit the above:

But to better understand the potential motivation behind the Tanzanian president’s assertions alleging nefarious testing, one must keep in mind the tension between the country’s two main political groups — Magufuli’s party in power and the opposition — as well as criticism of the president’s handling of the pandemic unrelated to the claim.

At least one leader within the opposition party stood up for the national health laboratory despite Magufuli’s assertions, describing the leader’s suspension as “politics” interfering with his work, as outlined in the Al Jazeera piece. Additionally, the head of the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, John Nkengasong, defended the national health laboratory’s practices. He told reporters, according to Reuters, “The tests that Tanzania is using, we know they are working very well.”

Blatant lies or ignorance by the quoted health policy officians above.

Tanzania’s president is blaming the sharp rise of coronavirus cases on faulty testing kits

Posted May 4, 2020 by Rabson Kondowe

In just a month, Tanzania went from having only 20 coronavirus cases recorded to 480 cases, an alarming increase which puts the country with the highest number of cases in East Africa. However, the country’s president John Magufuli is convinced the number may be exaggerated due to technical hiccups with the imported testing kits.

Magufuli, who holds a doctorate in chemistry, said the testers had randomly obtained several non-human samples on animals and fruits which included a sheep, a goat and a pawpaw and the results came out positive. The samples were given human names and ages and were submitted to the country’s National Referral Laboratory to test for coronavirus without the lab technicians knowing the true identity of the samples.

This apparently prompted Magufuli to believe some people who were tested positive for Covid-19 might not have contracted the novel virus after all. “I have always raised my suspicions about how our national lab has been conducting the Covid-19 cases,” he said at an event in Chato in northern-western Tanzania. The president, who has ordered a probe into the country’s testing protocols, insinuated possible interference by unnamed saboteurs.

But Tanzania has long been criticized by public health experts for enabling a more relaxed approach to the pandemic compared to the strict lockdowns and restrictions in neighboring East African countries. Instead Magufuli has asked Tanzanians to pray away the virus and left places of worship open since the Covid-19 outbreak began.

[…]

Magufuli is now putting his trust on a herbal treatment [Artemisia annua] touted as a cure for Covid-19 by the president of Madagascar Andry Rajoelina. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that there was no proof of any cure.

“I am communicating with Madagascar, and they have already written a letter saying they have discovered some medicine. We will dispatch a flight to bring the medicine so that Tanzanians can also benefit. So as the government we are working day and night,” he said.

The Republic of Congo and Guinea Bissau are other African countries who have promised to import the herbal remedy.

Soon after Magufuli was elected in October 2015, Tanzanians and even other Africans, celebrated his “bulldozer” persona for getting things done such as firing a number of government top officials in his anti-corruption crusade with impromptu visits to public institutions.

(in an ironic twist of fate, the comment section of above linked has not-so-mysteriously disappeared if not a technical glitch presumably due to a new Google ads policy which is a (historically) general pattern of ongoing deplatforming and the leftist holiness spiral, mass mania of the woke mobs)

Posted Jul 27, 2020 by GreatGameIndia.com

Huge foreign loans are given to sovereign nations by the World Bank, IMF and the likes. But the conditions that come attached to these loans are seldom told by governments to their citizens.

A recent case in Belarus has exposed the conditions laid by these agencies for loans being provided for COVID-19. The President of Belarus has exposed that the World Bank coronavirus aid comes with conditions for imposing extreme lockdown measures

[…]

“It is ready to fund us ten times more than it offered initially as a token of commendation for our efficient fight against this virus. The World Bank has even asked the Healthcare Ministry to share the experience. Meanwhile, the IMF continues to demand from us quarantine measures, isolation, a curfew. This is nonsense. We will not dance to anyone’s tune,” said the president.

Belarus is one of the only European countries that has not implemented strict coronavirus containment measures. The no-restriction situation is such that even the non-essential services remain open. The football league of Belarus is still being played. The only restriction kind-of step that Belarus took till now is that the school holidays have been extended.

Lukashenko is of the opinion that a complete lockdown was completely unnecessary. Similar, views have been expressed by many renowned scientists as well

The President of Belarus is not the first one to have exposed the pressure exerted by global agencies amidst the coronavirus crisis to further their agenda. Earlier, in a shocking development the President of Madagascar made a sensational claim that the WHO offered him $20m bribe to poison COVID-19 cure called COVID-19 Organics made from Artemisia.

The Tanzanian President kicked out WHO from the country after Goat and Papaya samples came COVID-19 positive. Days after the Tanzanian move, Burundi also kicked out WHO Coronavirus Team from the country for interference in internal matters.

[…]

It was also revealed in an intercepted human intelligence report that Bill Gates offered $10 million bribe for a forced Coronavirus vaccination program in Nigeria. After which, an Italian politician demanded the arrest of Bill Gates in the Italian parliament. She also exposed Bill Gates’ agenda in India and Africa, along with the plans to chip the human race through the digital identification program ID2020.

Bill Gates: End-to-end Encryption is Bad, Totalitarianism is Good

[Question:] As someone who has built your life on science and logic, I’m curious what you think when you see so many people signing onto this anti-[junk]science view of the world.

[Bill Gates:] Well, strangely, I’m involved in almost everything that anti-science is fighting. I’m involved with climate change, GMOs, and vaccines. The irony is that it’s digital social media that allows this kind of titillating, oversimplistic explanation of, “OK, there’s just an evil person, and that explains all of this.” And when you have [posts] encrypted, there is no way to know what it is. I personally believe government should not allow those types of lies or fraud or child pornography [to be hidden with encryption like WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger].

[Question:] Well, you’re friends with Mark Zuckerberg. Have you talked to him about this?

[Bill Gates:] After I said this publicly, he sent me mail. I like Mark, I think he’s got very good values, but he and I do disagree on the trade-offs involved there. The lies are so titillating you have to be able to see them and at least slow them down. Like that video where, what do they call her, the sperm woman? That got over 10 million views! [Note: It was more than 20 million.] Well how good are these guys at blocking things, where once something got the 10 million views and everybody was talking about it, they didn’t delete the link or the searchability? So it was meaningless. They claim, “Oh, now we don’t have it.” What effect did that have? Anybody can go watch that thing! So I am a little bit at odds with the way that these conspiracy theories spread, many of which are anti-vaccine things. We give literally tens of billions for vaccines to save lives, then people turn around saying, “No, we’re trying to make money and we’re trying to end lives.” That’s kind of a wild inversion of what our values are and what our track record is.

(I inserted the “junk” because people are protesting the corrupted, junk non-science that Gates is claiming is science. Is Bill Gates ingenuously hoodwinked by junk-science? Did he naively believe he could build a health sciences “non-profit” empire with a foundation on the corruption in hierarchally-controlled, antifragile systems? If so and Gates is not intentionally diabolical, then he’s IQ smart but myopic and being devoured by his confirmation biases and ignorance of holistic systems. Zuckerburg may understand that high IQ doesn’t make someone omniscient, doesn’t overcome confirmation biases, and can actually cause overcommitment to an erroneous view because for example Bill Gates is accustomed to being the smartest person in the room and always being right...well except if Gates would simply reflect on how many times Microsoft was wrong and got their asses whooped then perhaps he would be a bit more circumspect about what he thinks he knows is fact but may not be truth.

Lies, damned lies, and statistics. Problem is that people who are overly invested in the truth they glean from data are susceptible to mistaking the bark of the tree for the forest. For example, with data if the foundational assumptions are garbage, then all the resultant conclusions even from overwhelming data can be garbage too. And the other problem with a single narrative based on data is often the reality is multifarious. That’s why antifragile systems are those with widespread degrees-of-freedom that don’t overcommit to the gridlocked catastrophe of omniscient truth. In other words, the emperor has no underwear.

I do hope Gates at least understands that if we backdoor end-to-end encryption then that version of the Internet will lose antifragility and collapse into a hacking clusterfuck. For the love of God I hope he is not myopic enough to think a “a little bit” of backdooring is acceptable. A person can’t be half-pregnant. Once the camel’s nose is under the end-to-end encryption tent then it’s lights-out for human civilization.)

Are Mercenary Terrorist Sleeper Cells Already Planted in the USA?

George Webb has researched abuse of the MAVNI program in the US. Whereby, over the past 20-30 yrs, tens of thousands of foreign nationals were allowed into the USA and served stints in military to fast-track citizenship. Seems likely, Webb says, many individuals with ties/allegiances to hostile states or terrier groups got planted into American society.

Thanks. Will look into. There is also involvement of British intelligence.

Antifa is Trained by ISIS?

[…]

For years there have been concerns that Antifa members have joined the YPG, the Syrian affiliate of the PKK terror group, in Syria, where they received armed training under the watch of Obama administration

[…]

Many of these volunteers traveled to Syria from American cities without any hindrance. Upon their return, they were hardly ever investigated.

“What does Antifa want with a bunch of seasoned combat veterans? Why do they need that to supplement their movement? It’s a very interesting question to what they were precisely upto,” Brad Johnson, a former CIA officer, said in an interview last year.

[…]

Edward Klein, the former editor in chief of the New York Times Magazine in his latest book All Out War makes the shocking revelation that an FBI investigation discovered collusion between American anarchists and ISIS and Al-Qaeda.

It reveals the FBI sent a task force to Germany to report on radical groups that planned to protest President Trump’s attendance at the G20 Summit. The investigation determined that U.S. based anarchist/radical groups had traveled to Germany and took part in the violence. There was also evidence that three key leaders of an Oakland group met in Hamburg with a leader of the Al-Qaeda. The foreign terrorists were helping Antifa acquire the weapons they were seeking, primarily bomb-making equipment and toxic chemicals and gasses.

‘There is clearly overwhelming evidence that there are growing ties between U.S. radicals and the Islamic State, as well as several [ISIS] offshoots and splinter groups. Now that the bureau has determined they have followers in the radical U.S. resistance movement in the United States, it is clear there will be additional violence in the attacks on law enforcement and U.S. institutions, including banks,’ stated the FBI field report, which was delivered to Acting Director Andrew McCabe on July 11, 2017, and published for the first time in the book All Out War.

What the FBI investigators uncovered in 2017 is now manifesting in America spiraling into a full-blown Civil War. If not diffused soon, like the German Autumn, it will be called the American Winter.

(My research in prior years revealed that “Al-Qaeda” (which means ‘the toilet’) is a fictitious psyops creation of the CIA and Deep State. So what apparently what is being manufactured and prepared will be terrorist attacks pretext to declare martial law and suspension of civil liberties (probably including suspension of the Second Admendment as took place in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina). This current scamdemic, pLandemic is likely only the first (actually next in a series including the 9/11 false-flag) salvo the Deep State overlords have planned for our demise and enslavement.)

CONFIDENTIAL DOCS: George Soros Funding BLM Style Racial Movements To Topple Donald Trump

Open Society Foundations, an organization established by George Soros is funding $220 million to BLM (Black Lives Matter) style groups focused on ‘Racial Justice’. The public records disclosed that Soros will double his 2016 election’s expenditures to defeat Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.

Thousand Currents – Terrorist Ties To Black Lives Matter

A leading Black Lives Matter (BLM) group has atleast one terrorist on its board of directors. Thousand Currents – the group funding the core operations of BLM – is known to have a terrorist Susan Rosenberg as a Vice Chair on its board. Susan is an expert in civil unrest and cultural warfare. She was the ringleader of “America’s only woman-run terror group”. She tried to derail Ronald Reagan’s reelection campaign by orchestrating a violent movement based on racial oppression and spent 16 years in federal prison for domestic terrorism.

INTERVIEW: Black Lives Matter Mobilizing Highly Trained Military Arm For War On Police

Black Lives Matter (BLM) has declared war on the police and has released a blueprint for Black Panther style armed ‘patrols’ monitoring police officers on the streets. BLM’s leader revealed in an exclusive interview that they are mobilizing a highly-trained military arm. The group held a conference in Los Angeles with ‘military advisors’ charting out details of the ‘Black Opts’ blueprint – which stands for Black Opportunities. Black Special Forces officers are training the BLM’s Black Ops department of Black Opportunities. BLM is raising a ‘war chest’ and plans to build a headquarters in an unused church in New York.

[…]

Adopting the strategy of the controversial Black Panther Party in the 1960s, Newsome said BLM will create ‘Peace Officers’ who will patrol black communities to challenge law enforcement and stop police brutality.

Asked if the ‘Peace Officers’ would be armed and open carry their guns in the states that allow it, he said: ‘Yes, absolutely.’

The Black Panther Party was a revolutionary socialist political organization founded in October 1966 in Oakland, California. The BPP’s core practice was its open carry armed citizens’ patrols (“copwatching”) to monitor the behavior of officers of the Oakland Police Department and challenge police brutality in the city.


_Founded in 1966 the Black Panther Party’s core practice was its open carry armed citizens’ patrols – known as cop watching – to monitor the behavior of officers of the Oakland Police Department and challenge police brutality in the city. Pictured: Khallid Mohammad, of New York representing the New Black Panther Party, left, waves to people along a route that the group armed with guns in Jasper, Texas on June 13, 1998_

The Black Panther Party members were involved in many fatal firefights with police. Huey Newton (Minister of Defense) is believed to have killed officer John Frey in 1967, and Eldridge Cleaver (Minister of Information) led an ambush in 1968 of Oakland police officers, in which two officers were wounded and Panther Bobby Hutton (Treasurer) was killed.

In 1967, the Mulford Act was passed by the California legislature and governor Ronald Reagan, establishing strict gun laws that stripped legal ownership of firearms from Black Panther members and prevented all citizens, black and white, from carrying firearms in public.

In 1969, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director J. Edgar Hoover described the party as “the greatest threat to the internal security of America.” He developed an extensive counterintelligence program (COINTELPRO) to infiltrate, undermine and assassinate the party members.

(We all know the Black Panthers were infiltrated by Deep State and goaded/manipulated into creating that pretext for the violation of the Second Admendment in California. Of course the plan underway now is to create a nation-wide pretext for abbrogating the second Amendment. The Black Lives Matter enlistees are naive minions who not know they’re being manipulated for political, enslavement aims.)

BLM Forming an Army in the UK; Reminiscient of the IRA

(Only a couple of decades back the "provos", or the IRA (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Republican_Army) were the sworn enemy of the British Establishment. Yet the above can occur without a murmur from the Metropolitan Police. Infact, during the statue toppling a month or so back, they were taking the knee before BLM protesters and also retreating in submission. Their Commissioner, Cressida Dick, is plainly another useful idiot https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cressida_Dick. Here’s a photo from DailyMail.co.uk of IRA in balaclavas, reminiscent of this weekend's BLM "army" in London.)

Holy sh8t. The details of the 2020 UK Corona Act are horrific

SUMMARY. Start from 9 mins and refer to for example Section 21 of the Act:

  1. Nationalization of vital industries (bankruptcy of everything else)

  2. Indefinite detention of anyone SUSPECTED of having a virus. No right to trial and indefinite detention without any proof needed.

  3. Can’t sue the government for any torture they inflict on you.

  4. Your dead, tortured body never has to produced. It can be legally cremated without ever being autopsied.

  5. Before this Act, you needed multiple signatures and personal history of doctors and you could refuse medication for being committed to a psychiatric asylum. The Act removes all such protections.

  6. Soon to be expanded it will be illegal to question the governments medical health policy.

THEY ARE PREPARING FOR MASS EXTERMINATION. ANYBODY WHO REMAINS IN THE UK IS JUST A FREAKIN’ IDIOT. I would be on the first flight out of there.

The following statement by a Brit is especially indicative of an inability to think clearly:

If you consider that the virus is real, the provisions of the act make complete sense.

  1. Even if a single virus had ever in the history of mankind been proven to fulfill the necessary Koch and/or Rivers’ requirements (which apparently has never been achieved), it still would not justify handing totalitarian control to an always inherently corrupt centralized governance (i.e. the collective is a power vacuum always captured by the most ruthless and there can not be any other outcome, it’s just common sense analysis).

  2. Your precondition is the ultimate display of ignorance since you have ostensibly not even researched the fact that viruses do not PROVABLY exist. Whether they are actually distinct from exosomes and spread illness has apparently never been proven.

I guess I was not aware that the 2020 UK Corona Act had suspended basic checks and balances of for example a right to habeas corpus. Similar laws and/or heath policy documents may be on the books in the USA, but the distinction is we have a Constitution which some (even military or ex-military) will fight to the death to uphold against all enemies foreign or domestic. And we are armed to the hilt. The Brits have no such backbone so the totalitarianism will slice through the population analogous to a hot knife through warm butter. I suspect most Brits will willingly go to a medical facility and murdered there, perhaps being entirely oblivious to the fact that they are being murdered, which is much more efficient way for the global elite to handle the necessary collapse of the debt and demographic bubble. The global elite are merely managing the situation by optimizing as managers must do. It’s an entirely natural outcome, although diabolical and man-made.

That Deagal.com forecast’s methodologies are explained:

http://www.deagel.com/country/forecast.aspx

Curiously Deagel predicted the pandemic:

http://archive.is/bUDNp

By the way, no pandemic or nuclear war is included in the forecast.

So the Deagal projections are ostensibly based solely on factors other than the pLandemic underway, so the outcomes are perhaps going to be worse than Deagal has projected for 2025! However...

And Deagal explains in their forecast explanation why the global elite had to devise a way to cull the elderly population in those countries primarily propped up by a massive finance and credit bubble with aging demographics:

The key element to understand the process that the USA will enter in the upcoming decade is migration. In the past, specially in the 20th century, the key factor that allowed the USA to rise to its colossus status was immigration with the benefits of a demographic expansion supporting the credit expansion and the brain drain from the rest of the world benefiting the States. The collapse of the Western financial system will wipe out the standard of living of its population while ending ponzi schemes such as the stock exchange and the pension funds. The population will be hit so badly by a full array of bubbles and ponzi schemes that the migration engine will start to work in reverse accelerating itself due to ripple effects thus leading to the demise of the States. This unseen situation for the States will develop itself in a cascade pattern with unprecedented and devastating effects for the economy. Jobs offshoring will surely end with many American Corporations relocating overseas thus becoming foreign Corporations!!!! We see a significant part of the American population migrating to Latin America and Asia while migration to Europe - suffering a similar illness - won't be relevant. Nevertheless the death toll will be horrible. Take into account that the Soviet Union's population was poorer than the Americans nowadays or even then. The ex-Soviets suffered during the following struggle in the 1990s with a significant death toll and the loss of national pride. Might we say "Twice the pride, double the fall"? Nope. The American standard of living is one of the highest, far more than double of the Soviets while having added a services economy that will be gone along with the financial system. When pensioners see their retirement disappear in front of their eyes and there are no servicing jobs you can imagine what is going to happen next. At least younger people can migrate. Never in human history were so many elders among the population. In past centuries people were lucky to get to their 30s or 40s. The American downfall is set to be far worse than the Soviet Union's one. A confluence of crisis with a devastating result.

The Demographic crisis in the former Soviet Union countries has extended for over two decades, if we accept that it ended early in this decade (2010s). The demographic crisis will hit the World in the near future and is projected to last between three and eight decades more or less depending on technological breakthrough and environmental issues. The aftermath is more likely a frozen picture with the population numbers staying the same for a very, very long period of time. The countries forecast population numbers do reflect birth/deaths but also migratory movements. Many countries are going to increase their gross population due to immigration while their native population may shrink.

Over the past two thousand years we have witnessed the Western civilization built around the Mediterranean Sea shifting to Northern Europe and then by the mid 20th century shifting to an Atlantic axis to finally get centered into the States in the past 30 years. The next move will see the civilization being centered in Asia with Russia and China on top. Historically a change in the economic paradigm has resulted in a death toll that is rarely highlighted by mainstream historians. When the transition from rural areas to large cities happened in Europe many people unable to accept the new paradigm killed themselves. They killed themselves by a psychological factor. This is not mainstream but it is true. A new crisis joins old, well known patterns with new ones.

So in essence the Deagal forecast for death aligns with what the pLandemic will likely accomplish, and thus perhaps the outcome will not be worse than Deagal has forecasted. And thus the reason for example that some nations will not suffer as much as the U.S.A., UK, Australia for example, is because of the lower level of indebtedness in for example Belgium and Finland apparently (??). For example, Finland is forecasted to remain stable:

http://www.deagel.com/country/Finland_c0071.aspx

Much of the EU is projected to have population decline but the economic reduction is less than for the Anglo-Saxon (sans Germany) bloc USA, UK and Australia.

Deagal has the UK declining to parity with the rest of the world but the world population does not decline nearly as much as the Western countries. I believe the global elite decided they can’t pay for the healthcare and retirements of the Western elderly and that the West has become a dysfunctional debt bubble so the only way forward is to wipe it clean and retain only the youth. Also since they have indoctrinated the Western youth into socialism, then wiping away the non-youth will make a leap to the globalized, socialism governance system the multinational, fascist elite want and have apparently exquisitely planned and are in the midst of implementing in an accelerated onslaught.

Deagal projects the U.S. population to decline by ~2/3 by 2025 which is slightly less catastrophic than the ~3/4 decline projected for the UK (ouch!):

http://www.deagel.com/country/United-States-of-America_c0001.aspx

Clearly Deagal sees this as the final collapse of the former British Empire with the arrogant, complacent Brits getting whacked upside their deserving heads.

Imagine what that will do to the value of housing, when compounded with popping of the debt bubble which pulls income forward ~30 years making homes 10 times more expensive than the non-debt induced bubble could support. I am revising my forecast for Western real estate (with housing or office structures on it) and now expect these parcels to decline by 80+% by 2025, not 25 – 67% as I had previously thought.

Interestingly though although the U.S. median income per capita (or household) is not in the Deagal predictions (and I surmise it will plummet more so than GDP per capita due to an extreme rise in the Gini coefficient), the U.S. GDP per capital will still maintain at significantly higher than the rest of world (along with many EU countries but not the UK which plummets) although the total GDP will plummet from $17 trillion to $2.4 trillion annually. So this seems to indicate that the U.S. will remain economically viable in some facets but those facets only privy to those who wake up to the transition underway and take full advantage of their opportunities. Most people will miss the train because they are pigheaded — as it must be because a uniform distribution would be the antithesis of life (there could be no cycles which absolutely a necessity of change and thus life).

I think every Westerner should leave for greener pastures if they can handle that culture and different way of life. But of course most everyone will look the gift horse in the mouth instead and perish. C’est la vie. Russia and China are projected to grow significantly.

Interestingly Japan is projected to fair much better than the Anglo-Saxon (and most EU) countries and even Armstrong has noted that Japan appears to be approaching the bottom of its ~31 year downcycle:

http://www.deagel.com/country/Japan_c0103.aspx

But bear in mind that Japan is an authoritarian society so I doubt you want to go there and intend to be an open dissident although James Corbett (a Canadian) of the Corbett Report is a resident or citizen of Japan. Although perhaps the West will become more authoritarian than Japan. I doubt I want the climate of Japan. I probably prefer to take my chances here in the South or West USA and/or Mexico, which appear to have a better projected outcome than the UK and other W. European countries.

Mexico is projected to remain stable so my recent emails to that Mexican immigration attorney seem to have been a correct projection and understanding of the future of Mexico:

http://www.deagel.com/country/Mexico_c0135.aspx

And Mexico has a wonderful climate in terms of what I like, especially with the Maunder Minimum underway.

Also the fact that Mexico will decline less than the USA seems to indicate the South of the USA will fare much better than the North of the USA, which is what I have been predicting and even Armstrong is predicting that.

Here’s the way I view it right now. It’s not wise to be stuck to a single option for at least residency and possibly also citizenship. I think it behooves us Westerners to seek out residency in a country that is projected to fare better by Deagal than the country we are in, unless for example you’re in an apparently well managed Scandinavian country. Note even though some EU countries are projected to fare better than the worst, bear in mind that some of them still have a demographic problem and thus there will still likely be authoritarian culling via the health eugenics pLandemic underway, although it may be less pervasive than the demographic and credit/finance bubble in the former British empire yet still we as individuals can succumb to the coming eugenics even in this EU countries which are projected to fare better.

Just look at the writing that is already on the wall. Trump is actively helping the eugenics plan with massive funding for ventilators and vaccines. Ditto UK they are even codifying the right to force vaccinate. Although we can see Mexico has been very lax in keeping their airports open, the forecast for less death in some countries may reflect the demographics that there are less old people to cull and not necessarily a guarantee that there won’t be forced vaccination. China probably also wanted a way to fix their demographic bubble also.

Note the USA an Mexico are moving towards parity economically and population. Appears the two countries will become even more integrated.

Thus the way I view this is if you are over age 50 especially (and perhaps even above age 40) then you are a target for culling. So I want to be in the one country where I can refuse and defend myself with an AR-15 — the United States. There is no other country in the world where I can do that. And also I want to be in the devout, conservative, redneck South where the people are likely to become informed and stand up against the culling plan.

However, I also want to hedge my bets and I will seriously consider now which country I should establish an alternate residency and/or purchase a citizenship if I can afford it. I am leaning towards Baja, Mexico, because I think that’s climate I want. But perhaps I should also take another look a Chile as well, because at least I can own a gun more readily in Chile.

Chile is expected to fare even better than Mexico:

http://www.deagel.com/country/Chile_c0043.aspx

No man is entirely an island. We will succumb to the society around us. Choose wisely a society to be attempt to survive this morass. Those who think they can just hide in an rural, secluded enclave within the society unnoticed are likely to end up disappointed. A rural enclave may help only if your fellow constituents are also politically unified. Politics isn’t something we can avoid, except by voting with our feet.

(Note to self, refer to August 12/13 emails in thread “To my friends in Europe and Democrat-controlled States of U.S.A., GTFO immediately!”)

The discussion with that Brit is very illustrative at how Hitler was able to rise.

Have you read it?

I am not the one forwarding it. If you don't fact check information you forward, then you add to the noise. That article is clearly one sided mind control propaganda, because it does not analyse the provisions in the law and weigh the pros and cons. This is not a simple matter, and there are careful judgements involved. Anyone presenting something so simple without considering the counter-points is clearly communicating a pre-defined message and cherry picking the information to support that message.

We exist in a state of incomplete information, so assumptions have to be made. Anyone presenting a simplified argument for one side or the other, withou considering the valid points from the other side is clearly a propaganda puppet, or completely brain-washed already.

Now you have gone from the virus is a hoax, carry on as normal, to it's a military micotoxin. You will just keep increasing the volume and forwarding any old shit until everybody panics. Social media is creating a complete clusterfuck because unqualified people just forward bullshit.

What is happening is social media is acting as an amplifier, and if you feed any old noise and bullshit into an amplifier, what happens is you get the same noise just louder. The system goes into feedback mode where it amplifies it's own output, and the noise just keeps getting louder, until you PANIC and then start trying to get everyone else to PANIC.

Just relax, wear a mask, socially distance, and everything will be all right.

Time will tell.

Oh and support local and small businesses :-)

By the way, it looks like section 21 only applies in N.Ireland not the whole UK.

This is total FUD. There autopsies are only carried out in the case of suspected foul play, so what exactly is different?

So you say, “nothing to see here, just continue following the sheep’s ass in front of you and stay in line.”

because it does not analyse the provisions in the law and weigh the pros and cons.

There are no pros to such a law that entirely voids basic rights. What the hell is wrong with you?

This is total FUD. There autopsies are only carried out in the case of suspected foul play, so what exactly is different?

There is foul play. Cripes so much evidence of it.

I now realize you are a mouthpiece for totalitarianism. And you are thus you are an enemy of humanity.

Haha. I will remember this when you cry out and nobody is there to defend you anymore.

Clearly, clearly, clearly. Hahaha.

By the way, it looks like section 21 only applies in N.Ireland not the whole UK.

Cite the part of the document that causes you to believe this. You make so many mistakes. So you only care about human rights for yourself and not Ireland? And if your interpretation is correct, then you presume it will never be expanded to include you?

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
         Because I was not a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
         Because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
         Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Now you have gone from the virus is a hoax, carry on as normal, to it's a military micotoxin.

Could be. Prove it is not. Never did I propose to carry on as normal if the virus is hoax. That’s illogical, why would such a massive hoax be a non-threat given the costs and what must be at stake?

We exist in a state of incomplete information, so assumptions have to be made.

Finally you admit you are full of shit. The arrogance that your ignorance of facts forms a better ass-u-me-ption, even while you admit you’re too lazy to research and stop making assumptions.

A different Brit replied:

The discussion with that Brit is very illustrative at how Hitler was able to rise.

I believe that even when discussing these matters with highly intelligent people, their normalcy bias can be an impossible nut to crack. Possibly a primal self-protection mechanism to prevent mental and emotional pain when contemplating the likelihood of highly distressing events. Most non-sociopaths/psychopaths find it almost impossible to believe that other humans can behave with brutal and self-serving disregard for others, simply to satisfy their dehumanising ambitions. Part of this, I think, is that most of us in advanced Western societies are dissuaded from contemplating and accepting what Jung referred to as the "shadow" aspects of our personalities. So we are collectively leaving ourselves open to abuse by these individuals once they gain enough power over us.

When trying to get most people to use their critical faculties and at least look behind the information that is pumped into their consciousness day in and day out by politicians and the MSM seems an increasingly uphill struggle now - most likely it's too late. They are lost to the power of propaganda. But even the possible 20-30% waverers who have the potential to be shaken into waking up will struggle to contemplate what could easily turn out to be horror on an unprecedented scale. By that I don't automatically accept the worst aspects of what can be surmised from the words and actions by the likes of Gates, Soros, the UN, WEF etc will actually happen, and in some way we might turn out to have certain details incorrect. All of it could be true, or some of it could. And by that I don't mean to give they impression I'll hide my head under a blanket and pretend it will all go away.

It's a sickening feeling to behold. And I also try to keep myself in check when considering it. Am I batshit crazy, or am I really watching the invasion of the bodysnatchers, that most others are hysterically credulous and are being manipulated like puppets. In one way that is a healthy approach, but also very taxing on ones grip of sanity, trying to live something resembling a normal life during these strange days while feeling quite alienated from those around you.

Holy sh8t. The details of the UK Corona Act are horrific

For some reason I was under the impression you were already aware a few months ago of the Act. Most Brits are ignorant of its existence. It was barely covered in the MSM, only in as much that it was sensible and essential during such an emergency, and did not cover any of the disturbing details of how our freedoms and rights were to be summarily dispensed with - not forgetting our lives. When I saw it I was chilled.

Whether there is any substance behind the projected population figures for 2025 on that Deagel website, I don't know, but it's interesting that it expects <25% of the present population to be around by then in the UK http://www.deagel.com/country/United-Kingdom_c0209.aspx

Let's say mass exterminations did happen. Who I wonder would be chosen to survive; by what criteria. And would the number be closer to Gates' casually estimated forecast of lowering global population by a billion or so with vaccination, or something approaching that carved on the Georgia Guidestones. If it were to start, I believe they would not know when to stop, the madness would know no bounds at that point. I don't yet believe it is inevitable, but do believe it is very possible. Much more so than before March this year. How much do people's lives have to change in almost every respect before they start to believe they could continue along that sorry path. Too many rhetorical questions there!

The mass extermination in the UK may have already begun?

Manipulating data again? Or NHS is taking aggressive measures thus effectively murdering people in hospitals of any age? Or are they vaccinating more in the past or currently with some specific agent?

Well actually yes it was in that analogous line of creeping medical totalitarianism “do not resuscitate orders”:

It’s been completely ignored in the mainstream media, of course, but almost all the countries of Eastern Europe had negative excess deaths in the first six months of 2020. In short, there were less deaths during the COVID-19 “pandemic” than during the same months of 2019. Belarus, with no lockdown and no social distancing, was one of the countries with negative excess deaths. This can only mean two things: (1) That the excess deaths in Western countries were caused by media panic-mongering, and (2) That COVID-19 was LESS dangerous than a normal seasonal flu.

The key difference between England and the other states of Scotland, Wales and N.I. is that it has its statistics being twisted and inflated by the now fraudulent organisation “Public Health England”. They have already been publicly exposed by the Oxford-based Centre for Evidence Based Medicine for falsifying the cause of death of anybody who ever tested positive for Corona viruses (including the common cold) as Covid-19 even months later when they die of other causes.

This is just the tip of the iceberg as the entire organisation is now fully occupied producing disease propaganda to create more fear in the population to justify even further harassment and restrictions.

Yup, they dont give up, the Fauxi thing, is going full trotle into insanity, and the Yellow/Orangutan is limping after, and now talks about full facial protection kits, with sheild, and face dipers thruout also inside your own house, yeah, I wounder if this is an new Gov revenue stream, huh, since everything else is sliding down to the bottom of the pit.

And instead of people dying all over, they now whines we are infected, of coure, after not doing that much for months they finaly have kicked the Swab hysteria into warp drive and everybody, of course since they use the swindle we know as PCR, (Protecting the Corona Raket) and “others” equally shitty test regimes, and forgets to enlighten us all about the fact most of the anual flus are de facto in whats defined as the corona virus family witch is in the hundred range, so any living, human would have some of this resting in our system to any given time, but the MSM dont bother to tell us that, nor the shitty test regime, witch can give you the result you want, just run the blender some rounds more and presto, the DNA/RNA shows us, uh…. something, but somehow, despite the sky rocketing numbers of uh… infected, they have to fake the stats to make it look like people are dying from it, somehow.

The fascinating aspect of the number jerking is that this raket is to keep been ongoing to the next flu wave comes witch is rught around the corner and I bet the war typos are been keept red hot to that day, witch of course is an corona strain, yeah, buckled both ends.

What is amazing is what Bozo the Clown is doing with Britain, its like something pushed reality into an different modus this year, something weird is going on, mass pshycosis, or generat dementia, an black hole sucking sanity into it and the collective gonitive abilitys went down the drain, the MSM is gone barking mad, even my wife and I laughs “hysterical” by all the insanity we are spoon feed from the PC-infested, an contagious decsease witch is much, much more dangerous than this itchy bitchy tiny whiny thing called Corona, and the row of experts, god have mercy makes this dance macabre complet.

Australian Tyranny – Is Revolution Coming?

This video shows the tyranny in Australia as they arrested a pregnant woman for posting about a protest against the lockdowns. We have warned that the War Cycle, which includes Civil Unrest, turned up in 2014 and will build into intensity by 2022. This is not a forecast that has ever given me any pleasure. The two components are international war and civil unrest which leads to revolution. The worst seems to be on schedule for the Pi Target after 2024 and the peak of this 8.6-year business cycle wave of the Economic Confidence Model.

On January 1, 1901, the six colonies joined together forming the Commonwealth of Australia. The Revolutionary Cycle in Australia turned up in 2013, just slightly before the global War Cycle which turned up in 2014. The actions of the Australian government have completely turned toward an absolute authoritarian reign. Here you see that they are indeed monitoring all social media arresting a pregnant woman for merely posting on Facebook that a protest would take place. Even the German high court ruled that the government could not stop the protest on August 29th, 2020. Here in Australia, you see that the government has rejected every principle of a free society. Typically, the West would impose sanctions against Australia blocking all trade for they are treating their people no different than Russia invading Crimea as the West alleges, Syria, or Iran. Don’t forget the allegations against Iraq that it was a dictatorship.

The Australian Civil Unrest Cycle should begin to pop next year in 2021 and build into intensity by 2026. These politicians will be voted out of office so there will most likely be claims that in the middle of such a crisis, elections will be suspended. These politicians cannot now allow a free election for anyone who would then side with the people would be moved to arrest these politicians and prosecute them. Therefore, as long as Australian police act like the ones in this video, there will eventually be blood in the streets.

Tens of Thousands Protest in Victoria After Andrews Arrests a Pregnant Woman

The peaceful march in Victoria with the cry “FREE VICTORIA” from the tyranny of Andrews showed that 10s of thousands of people came out risking arrest from the ruthless police that claims to be just following orders as the Nazis did in executing Jews as they try to pretend they are not the problem. I have said many times that UNTIL the police wake up and defend the people against tyrants like Andrews, then freedom vanishes. They will abuse the people and hide behind the slogan they were just following orders when they swear an oath to defend the human rights embodied in international law. There is no way Andrews will win an election unless he bans elections and rigs them.

The interesting thing is Trump is far more popular outside the United States for standing up against this hoax. Here you will even see signs “TRUMP THANKS FOR SAVING OUR CHILDREN.” These are not pictures Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab want to see for their tyranny will come with a very heavy price […]

Daniel Andrews – Australia’s Dictator – Crimes Against Humanity

The tyranny of using this virus to shut down and rig elections is extremely dangerous. The New Zealand government has locked down Auckland after just four new cases and postponed the national election with under 100 active cases. Under the pretense of this virus, we are at serious risk of losing everything as those in power realize that they would now be voted out. Their only solution is to postpone elections, which then will gradually never return. That all depends upon the police and the military. Will they continue to support the loss of our free societies? Daniel Andrews is an Australian politician who is the 48th and incumbent Premier of Victoria since 2014. He is also the state leader of the Australian Labor Party since 2010. He is showing the world how dangerous the left has become. He is destroying all freedoms in Victoria and pointing the way for what all left-wing agenda truly is all about.

Doctors are coming out and pleading with this ruthless Daniel that in the name of the virus, he is putting everyone else at risk of death by other things from strokes to heart attacks. People are being denied normal health care because of these left-wing politicians around the world. The police and military are betraying the people of Australia just as they do in Venezuela. They should be storming the legislature and arresting Daniels Andrews for crimes against humanity […]
