Martin Armstrong Warns Civil Unrest Is Rising Everywhere: "This Won't End Pretty"

Tyler Durden's picture


Submitted by Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics,

Russell Brand

The greatest problem we have is misinformation. People simply do not comprehend why and how the economic policies of the post-war era are imploding. This whole agenda of socialism has sold a Utopian idea that the State is there for the people yet it is run by lawyers following their own self-interest. The pensions created for those in government drive the cost of government up exponentially with time. The political forces blame the rich and this merely creates a class warfare with no resolution for the future. Even confiscating all the wealth of the so-called rich will not sustain the system. Consequently, we just have to crash and burn and start all over again.

The Guardian reported that some 50,000 people marched in London to protest against austerity. They cried: “Who is really responsible for the mess this country is in? Is it the Polish fruit pickers or the Nigerian nurses? Or is it the bankers who plunged it into economic disaster – or the tax avoiders? It is selective anger.”

The exploitation by the bankers has been really a disaster. They have been their own worst enemy and in the end, they have become the symbol that inspires class warfare if not revolution. They are not the representatives of those who produce jobs. They are merely those who wanted to trade with other people’s money for free. When they win, it is their’s, but any losses are passed to the taxpayers. Bankers should be bankers – not hedge fund managers who keep 100% of the profits using other people’s savings.

Glass-Steagall Signing-Repeal

The repeal of Glass Steagall was the final straw that broke the back of the world economy. That was the single worst act that could have ever been done and we are now paying the price in spades. The collapse from 2007 has wiped out even the liquidity of the markets. The second worst act was the creation of the euro when the real goal was the federalization of Europe from the outset. That undermined the entire European banking system and has led to a serious undermining of the entire global economy.

The solutions from politics will always be the same – grab more power. We are in a downward spiral of liberty and how far we go down this path to the future will be determined by the people and if they at least wise up and see this is not class warfare, it is the people against government. This is why I say career politicians are dangerous for they can be bought way too easily as Clinton was to open the flood gates for the bankers.

This is not going to end pretty. The question is when does society wake up? Just how high will this price be that we have to pay? They will blame the rich and the idiots will cheer – get them. What will happen when there is no more wealth to hunt? We end up with a communist state by default – no wealth, just career politicians who blame everyone but themselves.

It might not end pretty. But it could be the start of a world without governments and violence, which would be wonderful.

Agreed.  What we need is a new world disorder, a decentralized, networked world where we are free to express ourselves, instead of being dominated by political mediocrities owned by banksters.

WHY DOES HomeLand Have Soo Many Million Bullets In It's Secured Warehouses ???

Is rael simple, folks.  Stop confessing to being a citizen of the United States and all your problems go away.

Here's another mini-lesson from your pal Chumblito.  Drop a tab and ponder this:


  -- created --

We the People

  -- created --

the states (United)

  -- created --


  -- created --

United States citizen

The created can never be greater than the created.  If you are a "United States citizen" then you are a creation of the UNITED STATES, a corporation.  You are its property.  Its chattle.  Like cattle.  Or actually, not more like but exactly like emancipated negro slaves, with civil rights in place of what should be unalienable God given rights as secured by the Bill of Rights through the Constitution.

But, you, a creation of a corporation?  How can that be?  You are a flesh and blood wo/man, and the only one we know who can create those is...God.

You don't want to beleive in God?  Fine.  But believe God is your creator, otherwise your GOVERNMENT GOD will claim you as its own, and that G.O.D. (Government Obligated Debt) requires you to pay taxes.

Get it?

Go back to the top and take your rightful position as a son or daughter of God on Earth.  The Earth spawned you, not corporations.  Man spawed the corporation, and the corporation spawned the inanimate corporate United States citizen.


* "UNITED STATES" is the name of the corporation providing government administration services to the 50 Union states.  It is akin to "WALMART" or "MCDONALD'S" OR "COSTCO".  It is a corporation.  See 28 U.S. Code § 3002(15)(A).

I am Chumbawamba.

Actually if one reads Silent Weapons for Silent wars and otherwise understands Econometric modelling, none of this should be a surprise.

With the kind of data access they have now, a large swathe of the population is in the "highly predict-able" zone. Between dual sim phones and panoptical snooping, they know where you are, probably who with and what you just ordered/did. 

It's a discreet world to planners. 

But then there are the Neozzzz of the world. Waking up, like here.

The race is between en-darken-ment and it's opposite.

And for a hopefully slow Sunday, if anyone is called to a little alternative guitar treatment, yours truly ;-)

Disabling the GPS on your phone is very easy. Most phones have a video posted online that demonstrate how to completely disassemble them and disabling GPS is as easy, an non-destructive and pulling a small cable plug out of a socket. This removes the antenna connection from the GPS transceiver chip and the phone should still work. So if you value your privacy it's that easy. If you want to either sell the phone or get GPS back then plug the cable back in.

phone do not have gps...


they have tri angular localization services based on cell phone relay... it is called " A-GPS"


you cannot off it, from a user side the soft disabling it unallowing application to  use service, but the service itself is by conception working, this is what allow  the phone to get best receiving quality by switching overs relays over time & location.

only solution, remove battery from phone.

Metallic foil wrap or bag could  work , too.

Somebody is selling them online.


Hey, I just heard that Chevron has taken over the gas distribution pipe in Ukraine.

Actually that deal was inked before the US sponsored coup.

So were a bunch of deals with Monsanto, Cargill and others.

The change of mind to go with the Russia rather than EU thus jeopardizing those deals is what sparked the bloody ouster and war.  

Follow the money. Peace and lives be damned.

Mission Accomplished.

Some animals are more equal than others.  (Translated = Politicians).  There, how tidy is that to sum it up.  We live now in Animal Farm my friends.

Amerika has been a socialist state since the 1930's...the communista is winning damn it, and all we do is hit the keyboards and each other...sad indeed.

If men were Angels then there would be no need for gov't.  Men are not Angels.  Some of you here want anarchy...well I hope you are part of the fittest, otherwise you will be eaten.

We need to go back to the Constitution, rule of law, wipe out the croney politicians from power via the vote...if we can find a way to prevent the fraud.  Establish fiscal sanity again. Quit being the world's policeman.  Defend our borders, and jail the corrupt, treasonous mongrels running our govt.

Failing that, we devolve into this anarchy some of you want.  It will not be pretty, watching people die, killing others, dying for what?

To the people of the world...WAKE THE FUCK UP!  Socialism, Communism, Fascism, and croney capitalism does not work.  It hast to be free markets, and FREEDOM.

We now have a police state, and TPTB are almost ready to slam the door shut on our freedoms for good; unless we wake up and get together to take our country back.  They want us to fight each other, because when we do that, we are not fighting them!!!

The "revolution" doesn't have to involve any violence.  I think "they" WANT a revolution to happen to give them an excuse to kill us at will.  Let's be smarter than that and just walk the fuck away from their bullshit system. 

Local communities working together, building permaculture gardens and food forests on EVERY vacant lot and rooftop will very quickly find that they don't need this decaying system any more.  Hungry?  There's a food forest on every block.  Running out of gas?  We can make biofuels from hemp.  Need building materials?  Hemp bricks.

The spooks triangulate your location when the phone is on (receiving calls) and you can't turn that off (it's based on math, not a  sensor). You can take out the battery or use throw-away phones to increase privavcy, but each phone will always be known to the system when its powered up.

It is not just GPS by which your location is tracked.

Trackers are already installed in the equipment of all

cellular providers. Not only do they track you (triangulation

by the towers), but they also record every conversation.

Today's massive disk drive farms, along with software

compression algorithms, they can literally store all the

phone conversations.


However, if a giant solar CME hits us, it will at least

fry all electronics, if not vaporize earth's atmosphere.

Interesting read indeed.  I kind of felt like Winston reading the secrets of the Inner Party...

Guess it is off to room 101 for some re-edumakation for me.

Not sure on the relibility of the source because there seemed to be some strange flows in logic (jumping from mathematical descriptions of economics to macro societal implications as well as truncated descriptions of social engineering).  It seemed a bit hodgepodge and it is entirely possible that some information was added to an original text to further a political agenda.  It is also entirely possible it is an authentic document.

There is obviously such a thing as God (you've referred to it afterall) but much like unicorns, zeus and godzilla God is only alive within the confines of the human imagination. Actually scratch that, after fukushima godzilla might be real some day. The others are definitely made up.

Anyway, I don't see what the big deal is, if people want to believe in things OK whatever - i believe in things that aren't real all the time, as do you, as does everyone, part of the ole' human experience. As long as these believers don't go all saudi arabia on us (as something like 40% of the american pop would like to) it's cool. It's actually nice talking to people who have moderate religious beliefs from time to time. And I don't mean that in a patronizing way, some of my favourite writers are / were deeply religious.

Really, you believe in things that aren't real. Like?

The word itself is really absurd when you look it at. The following two words: "I Believe" can preceed an infinite combination of words so long as the resulting phrase/sentence is grammatically correct. The ridiculous thing is, they're all right.

"I believe that we all get re-incarnated as roller coast tracks".

As absurd and ridiculous as the above statement is, it can't be wrong by defintion. If that's what I believe, that's what I believe.

Silly word.

You are asking some very good questions that get right to the heart of a very old riddle...  To get to the best possible answer you must first overcome the temporally perceived gravitational radius. (by temporally perceived I am referring to the construct we perceive and exist within that is governed by the speed of light propigating throughout at C^2). 

Hint: If you consider my "black hole merger paradox" there is an optimal solution to the black hole information paradox and that solution is mine.  Whereby physical information is preserved within black hole entropy only to be deterministically reassigned later... this line of thinking will lead you to the unification of mass and magnetism in a new physical constant.  Mass is temporally assigned magnetism and the two forces are only one in the same in one construct where 2GM/C^2 is the temporal reflection of 2GM/C. 

Unifying the strong and weak nuclear force is a bit more complicated, however; in doing so you will find your answer.  To do that will require a quantum relativistic hydrodynamic simulation of binary black hole hydrogen synthesis.  This is a deterministic process that can only be replicated by way of simulation on the smallest theoretical scale possible.
