Martin Armstrong Warns American Civil Unrest Is Starting Right On Schedule

Tyler Durden's picture


Submitted by Martin Armstrong via Armstrong Economics blog,



We have been warning that 2014 is the beginning of a new cycle that will see a highly unusual convergence between our domestic (civil unrest & revolution) data and our international war model. Both converge for the first time since the 1700s when there were US and French Revolutions and the fall of monarchy. This was the topic at our Cycle of War Conference (see also special report).

The civil unrest will develop first outside the USA and turn up more aggressively in the USA after 2015.75. Nonetheless, it still begins in 2014 for the USA as well. We are starting to see this in the West where memories of previous events still linger deep wounds from 1992.



The confrontation in Nevada between Clive Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management, whose Director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has turned into an issue of important cycle unrest. The government wants the land and demands Bundy gets his cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations. This dispute between a Nevada rancher and federal rangers over alleged illegal cattle grazing erupted into an Old West-style showdown on the open range this week, even prompting self-proclaimed members of militia groups from across the country to join the rancher in fighting what they say is U.S. “tyranny.”


This is a brewing resentment of federal government that goes back to Ruby Ridge, which was the site of a deadly confrontation and siege in northern Idaho in 1992 between Randy Weaver, his family and his friend Kevin Harris, and agents of the United States Marshals Service (USMS) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). It resulted in the death of Weaver’s son Sammy, his wife Vicki, and Deputy U.S. Marshal William Francis Degan. The Feds simply shot his unarmed family dead and it was alleged they even shot his son in the back. This is indeed the continued militarization of the police in America. The corruption was so bad in Ukraine that when someone saw the police, they trembled in fear. In the US, this trend is also underway and demonstrated by this video where the police began shooting at a minivan driven by a woman with children in the car over a traffic violation.

They are fucking around with a civil war that could last a decade and cause millions of deaths… and the sad truth is that 95% of the problems we have in this country could be solved tomorrow, by noon… simply by dragging 100 people out in the street and shooting them in the fucking head.”

Here's a brief snippet of an interview of Gerry Spence, the man who defended Randy Weaver:

The law as I see it today is severely broken and does not offer anything except an empty promise of "liberty and justice for all".

Please listen to other interviews of him if you want to hear some very uncomfortable truths about the American legal system.  Though anyone who has been through it already knows.

Technically it was $262. I know, I should hang my head in shame.

Cooper had been beating on the gold drum for years, and eventually the message stuck. He frequently cited sources and urged people to check them for themselves, and sometime in 1999 he stepped it up, I read up, and the rest is history.

It's funny, in 2008 during the excitement I bought another single 1/10th oz coin from the same dealer, who reminisced about the time I bought that first 1/10th oz coin "as the time when we couldn't give the shit away." As it turns out that purchase was an almost perfectly timed one on the bottom tick of the past 30 years. Too bad I lost both coins when my rowboat capsized in '09.

My single biggest financial regret has been not buying more back in '99. My second biggest financial regret is boating with my coin collection.

I think this bears mentioning, snipped from Wikipedia:

In August 1995, the US government avoided trial on a civil lawsuit filed by the Weavers, by awarding the three surviving daughters $1,000,000 each, and Randy Weaver $100,000 over the deaths of Sammy and Vicki Weaver. The attorney for Kevin Harris pressed Harris' civil suit for damages, although federal officials vowed they would never pay someone who had killed a U.S. Marshal (Harris had been acquitted by a jury trial on grounds of self-defense). In September 2000 after persistent appeals, Harris was awarded a $380,000 settlement from the government.

Weaver was acquitted as well.

Why only 100? Once you get started, how can you know when to stop? Only 100? Not by a long shot! At 10,000 you are begining to make progress. At 100,000 you are doing some good, and at 1 million you are doing great. This is how it starts, with just shooting 100 or so.

The site itself may not be down, but DNS isn't working for the domain. DNS hostname queries of the host, as well as the domain's name servers ( and do not currently resolve to IP addresses.

I also noticed a few hours ago that a completely unrelated site,, although working about 12 hours ago, is experiencing the same problem. DNS hostname queries of the site, as well as and, are not currently resolving.

It could be coincidence, or it could be a temporary DNS problem affecting some domains. Two data points don't establish a pattern; I'm just throwing this out here as a possibility.

I don't think ever used SSL for people looking at their web pages. I go there fairly regularly and didn't have a problem until the flap about the SSL bug hit the news. I use 'HTTPS Everywhere' and sites that don't use SSL come up as a normal HTTP web page. ZH doesn't use SSL either and there's no problem accessing it and no need to edit the URL. Since the SSL bug, and a few others don't load and time out. If anybody knows the answer, please post it.

In that first link starting at the 3:00 mark when the white haired dude starts speaking, listen to what he's saying.  He brings up the oath of office that every government officer makes when they take office.  That is an important thing to understand.

These people take oaths to support and defend the constitution of the state in which they are serving and of the United States.  When they do not honor that oath, they commit a felony.  It's no different than when someone shoots or stabs someone else.  Yet they aren't being held accountable.  Why not?

Also adding in the fact that people are taught that the Constitution is a living document and can be change or 'interpreted'.....then the sheep follow what thy are told to follow.

The Constition can not be 'interpreted'. What is says goes. Pretty simple. If you want to change it, follow the rules and have yourself a Constitional Convention. Otherwise, follow what it says without imply or inferring....

because the system is absolutely corrupt to the core, everyone knows it and is afraid if the corruption ends it will be the end of them. The whole world is dependent on corruption as the machine has become so rotten and decrepit that corruption is the grease that lets the wheels still turn. It will ultimately end. The system will ultimately collapse. But most are in no hurry to see this end for they fear that it will be their end as well. No solution exists that does not bring great pain with it and as such no solution will be implemented. From bad to ugly.

Chumba, Exactly the issue you bring up about Oaths of Office, which a colleage of mine filed with the Mesa County sheriff ( biggest city is Grand Junction Colorado) and has demanded that he arrest all 4 judges and  is in the oven as i write. This is all being done under the aspices of a supreme Court decision 

"The People's Common Law Grand Jury, which is being done nationwide as a result of a stunning 6-3 decision by Judge Scalia in the 90's?. Writing for the majority, confirmed  that the American Grand Jury is neither part of the judicial, executive nor legislative branches of government, but instead belong to the people, It is in effect a 4th branch of government"governed" by the people and administered directly by and on behalf of the American people, and its "authority emenates from the Bill of Rights".

There were no ifs buts or ands attached. It is a very cold, and to the point DEMAND what he requested be done. This is juust the first shot being fired, others will be coming.

If you are amoung the many disgruntled, angry with our Goverment, this might be a way to participate in what is now loooooog overdue.

It is now time to start kicking ass and taking names. Many states have filled all their counties with these juries. The near future may begin to look a little different if we all get off our asses and get in the game.              Milestones

Also, they deregulated the financial system in the late 90's to commit financial crimes. At that time thy put a plan into action to hire a shitload of cops in advance of the crime. How were they this smart did they study history knowing civil unrest would break out? You see, in the 90's computer power made massive leaps and bounds.

So they used supercomputers to game it out (incidentally Clinton Admin also gave these to China) no different then military wargames. They built project Echelon and Carnivore using advances in data storage as it had started to become affordable to monitor all Internet communications and filter them. People acting like they had privacy with an anonymous screen name was near comical to me.

I see no need to live in a cave but I believe one should have three months food and water (or chlorine which is bleach to purify water) and means to defend yourself if nothing else against violent crime if society breaks down for a short time. If nothing else, you'll feel more secure.

As Ben Franklin said "It is better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it."

If you run from the police because you can't hear them with ear-bugs in, you are a terrorist...

If you throw a shoe at a no-talent, hack of a politician, you are a terrorist...

If you question the party line from DC, you are a dissident and terrorist...

If you get turned around while driving near the capitol in DC and run from the police, you are a terrorist and shot 5 times, with one shot to the back of the head...

From out of nowhere. A law abiding, soccer mom & dad, tired but hard working family gets stopped at a drunk driving checkpoint after they just came back from a wedding celebration. One of the cops is vying for the gestapo of the year award and is sure to get it. Trouble starts. The dad refuses to be searched, refuses a breath test and asks for the the ID of the officers who are getting really pissed at being ignored- all while the family's German Shephard is barking at the group holding them. Some rogue cop tries the each door, one opens and out pops the dog ready to eat his face away and the cop draws & fires and... shoots into the liver of the cute 12 year old girl in the car before his comrades finish the dog off. The dad (understandably) goes apeshit. They slam the guy down on the pavement and arrest him for resisting arrest and assulting a police officer. More cops are called. All caught on vid with other cars stopped nearby ..and on YouTube within the hour.

Rev. 2.0 begins.

Apparently the authorities have gone a bit far in Venezuela.  That's a society in revolt.  Admittedly, I'm surprised Argentina hasn't exploded but they HAVE had riots and breakdowns.  Recently people in Buenos Aires state have been lynching criminals as the police are totally ineffective.

You also ignore the mass protests, some violent in Greece, Spain and Portugal referencing your "socialist Wester paper money shitholes".  While that as yet hasn't resulted in all out revolution, those societies are definitely at Defcon4.

I'm a peaceful, 54 year old man, who's been a citizen volunteer all his life (while still having a real job).  I spent six years in the 80's as a volunteer EMT for an all volunteer ambulance squad in north Flaw-DUH, fifteen years as a volunteer, since the 90's, in the Boy Scouts...and have been everything from County Coordinator for Muscular Dystrophy to State Coordinater for March of Dimes...

I'm a fuckin' nobody...but I'll shoot the first government agent (other than local sheriff) that knocks on my door...I'm so fucking primed I'd probably shoot any that want to inspect my vehicle at a state border.  (And I used to be a sheep)  I woke up in 2008 with the bank bail out...I remember it clearly...and went looking for an explanation and history <and found it on Zero Hedge eventually>. I have done my research, I have read the history that is ignored, I've read/watched countless websites....I AM now informed. (though I still have problems with investing gibberish put on Zero Hedge by those that know what the fuck they're talking about).

As I suspected - - - private schools impacted by PC too. (Even religious Catholic school.)

Every one of those people interviewed speaking up against the students didn't stop to ask any questions, just reacted emotionally based on their conditioning. They seem to think a piece of cloth can reach out and 'threaten' them somehow. (They must be absolutely scared shitless of guns & knives.) And you can just bet that they know nothing of the history of the American Civil War.

Ya wanna get a real education kids ?    Avoid 'schools'. Study on your own. Start with the gathering of evidence & facts, logic & spotting logical fallacies, rhetoric / writing so you can communicate ideas effectively to others. Think for yourself. Think creatively outside of the box.  Know that many of the 'adults' put in charge of you in 'school' are fuckin' morons who never had an original thought of substance in their lives.

"St. Anthony’s is a private Catholic school and isn’t bound by the First Amendment right to free speech."

I had to read that twice, People pay EXTRA to send their kids there. I have a friend who lives around there and pays about 14k in property taxes, which covers the public schools, and people will pay another several grand to make sure their kid is not bound by the first amendment right to free speech.

An elderly relative of mine went to a Catholic high school in the 1950s. I asked her questions about it, and she got an excellent education there. She stilll remembers many of her lessons from so many decades back. - - You can also find examples of old tests from public schools from the 1950s and even back to the 1800s. Those students were far advanced compared to those of today when it comes to learning how to actually think.

Education has drastically been degraded over the years.

I dunno man. I would say kids in public schools don't really have a whole lot of freedom of speech either. A while back some kid in public school got suspended for wearing a pro 2nd amendment shirt. I wish I would be able to home school mine, but I doubt that will be an option for us. Either way, it's easy to understand why people would want to keep their kids out of our terrible public schools.

I am not advocating public school over private school. I can only speak from my experience at this particular school. It was beyond scary. The people who "taught" there can all fuck off as far as I am concerned. The best thing that ever happened to me was them telling me I did not belong. When I enrolled in the public high school I was fortunate enough to have a self admitted libertarian history teacher and I credit him with getting me started on an early path of questioning everything. But this was 20 years ago. Much has changed and again I was lucky.

I guess I am fortunate enough to not currently have a wife or children, though I can understand those that would have to protect loved ones. In my clinical training I worked with patients that were seeking asylum due to being victims of torture, I've seen what happens when people lose humanity. Find like-minded individuals and try to help each other out as much as possible. If others want to use other means to defend I find no fault in that either, it's personal choice and I don't judge others for their choices. I live in a place where a simple walk without adequate clothing could kill me six months of the year, if it got too bad I would let nature do its thing and turn me into animal food.

Regarding 'not losing our humanity': the real, natural, world is a jungle, and even herbivores fight back whenever possible.  It is sad that people have been so filled with nonsensical BS delusions that they do not realize how much the predators LOVE pacifists: it's like taking candy from a baby (or submitting babies to MK-ULTRA, which they of course frequently do).

One particularly annoying thing with many activists is that they seek harmony and avoid discord, when in fact changing things (against the wishes of TPTB) inherently involves discord.  The agents of course use this against the activists very effectively: all they need to do to control a group of them is to make a big deal whenever anything really good is proposed - automatically, the sheeple end up feeling that they would rather not do that, if it's going to entail any strife in the group...

The people who don't want to fight get owned.  (But those who want to fight stupidly get rekt!)

I would have to disagree about getting owned. I set goals for my life and I have acheived them. I live my life on my own terms, they may be different from yours, but still I find them to work for me. I remember when the 2012 hype was coming and people asked me what I would do. I said I'd wait at the edge of my driveway, drinking a case of beer waiting for the titlewave to take me out. They asked why and I said, "I didn't go to school for all these years to graduate and become a farmer."

No you do not.

You live your life on terms set by government and its countless agencies of the State. What you really mean is that you accomodate all the laws/rules/regulations they set and keep bending over to keep the peace.

Which brings me back to my earlier unanswered question to you:

                                  "how much subjugation by criminals will you take before you say "Enough is Enough"?"
