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.

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:

God

  -- created --

We the People

  -- created --

the states (United)

  -- created --

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (a.k.a "UNITED STATES") <== *

  -- 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.

THINK!

* "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.

There are men , created in gods image and who have dominion over all animals .

And then , legally defined in statute , you have humans included with animals in statutes.

Check out food, drug and medicines statutes for proof !

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!!!

WAKE UP!

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.

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.

Nah, you're being negged by a lot of long time ZHers who, unlike you, don't think they are God. That's the alternative: you are supreme. That sounds even more ridiculous than flying spaghetti, doesn't it?

"I don't believe that God exists". Great, that works.
"There is no God and you are an idiot for thinking otherwise" is just an excuse to have the shit knocked out of you by people who have thought about this issue, post-high school.

You've made a choice. I assume you don't deny that, as Wiki says, the universe began as a singularity of zero volume and infinite energy. Something birthed that. Your choice is to believe that dead matter can lead to humans, who can create tiny black holes inside of super-colliders within a few thousand years of thinking about such things, but the infinite energy that birthed this universe must be forever mindless.

Who looks like a narrow-minded fucktard now? You put your foot down like a child, "it's mindless! It has to be!" with zero proof and zero logic. The rest of us, the adults, leave the door open to other possibilities.

I do agree..Kodak did fail.

Taking down Coke-a-Cola is gonna take a lot longer though.

I mean sure...who doesn't hate 'mericans. But deep down...who doesn't want a cold, refreshing (cue lyrical music interlude here) with AHHHHHHmen to that soda pop! (Wink from hot blonde, sell another ten million cases the next day.). Now THAT my friends IS GOD!

Without a doubt Soda Pop ended the war in Vietnam...just like it's winding down the Republocrats and their Zionist Overlords.

Go ahead Adolph Bloomturd...head on down to Atlanta and "raise hell about the red and white." Go ahead...mouth off about "fried chicken" and whatever that place is that Madison Avenue has turned into a Tummy Yummy Pleasure Paradise.

I mean give it up...the "money machine" has simply overwhelmed the American Electorate's ability to comprehend where they fit into this "uber munchen" world that's been laid before them.

"Strength and Honor"...that sells. "You lose I win"?

Ridiculous. These folks aren't even asking for a vote period...let alone preparing a policy response. And the sad part is the folks who have been given pretty much everything the Republic has to offer...they can't even offer a rationale or a reason for it.

"Out of the ashes has come a New America." That's why this equity market is unstoppable. "Says it right on the money...a Novus Ordo Seclorum."

That is a VERY valuable piece of paper being debauched. It is possible for that thing to become very valuable to even a simple saver...let alone a wage earner...or pensioner.

We have the largest debt markets in human history in this country for a reason...and it ain't because we're Zimbabwe or Zaire.

One of the reasons we had so much inflation in the 70's in the USA was because we had very low levels of debt. That is not the case now...so when the Keynsians come roaring in with their "printing press theology" they are running smack on into the problem of "how do I create demand with more debt" (and fewer taxpayers I might add.). And of course the answer is "you don't"...in fact the answer is "you CAN'T."

Simply put what is being "done" is both a logical if not Marxist (internal contradictions) impossibility. "Capaitism cannot flourish under a bailout regime." CASE CLOSED.

As an Atheist of the first order, I can go so far as to say that the most brilliant mind (MBM) the world has ever seen in a Human Bean, is an arrogant, prideful, self-obsessed twit to try and convince that there is a god.

I'm willing to admit that there may well be a 'beginning',  a birthdate of the universe,  but that just like infinity, the MBM---- let alone the average person---- cannot comprehend it-----and then since he can not, attributes the conundrum in an act of mental surrender, by declaring there must be a god.

Horsefeathers. 

"God" was a natural invention which arose as a garbled voice in minds of prehensile-tailed human beans, telling him to do this or that , based on the natural attribute of Fear. 

There is no fucking god, and if there is, she despises us, should appear at the Hague for war crimes trials as an indicted perpetrator, and summarily executed by a firing squad using Pellet guns.

comte, well written, but what you think it is we are saying is a mixed bag..a small few of us understand that the unknowable, is just that. Many will describe what it is, even to what it's expectations and goals are. I cannot lable what my human mind has almost (in fact no chance) of comprehending.

I think atheists if honest also use mental surrender to try to come to grips with the fact that it is astounding beyond comprehension, so it must not be real. I am reminded of a recent book by David Hand, emeritus professor of mathematics Imperial college of london.. a quote from it"there is no getting away from it:sometimes events occur which seem so improbable, so unexpected, and so unlikely, they hint that there's something about the universe we don't understand."

All of this is inevitable.
We have this thing of wonder, the creation of the universe, and we find ourselves here, distinctly different from the other beings around us.

These things will compel an intelligent mind to seek explanation. Let's assume all religions are truly contrived: if so, they reflect reality: The larger creates the smaller, and minds work with purpose. Lacking a scientific explanation of where everything came from, it's natural to believe it was made by something.

What human beings have done with these ideas is another question, but to formulate the idea of God is not an effort to control, but to understand.
The problem is what is done with the energy of the believers. It can be twisted. But THAT ENERGY EXISTS AND IT WILL FIND EXPRESSION. Scientists are now arguing that we have a predisposition to believe in big ideas. You want to look at the world in black and white: religion is bad, its absence would be better. For most believers, their belief is personal, and to the extent that it ever affects others, it manifests in gentle persuasion. For 99.5% of believers, the fact that they believe will never affect you. Most of their energy in this regard is focused on themselves and their loved ones. If people didn't put any energy into religion, then it's irrelevant and you're bitching about nothing. So you see what I see, an ocean of energy, and you would rather have it manifest in:

1. Government
2. Conquest
3. Commerce (unfettered by a moral code this leads to communism eventually, we'd have gotten there long ago absent a basic moral code passed down largely by religion. Or you get fascism or a combination, which we have now)
4. Race/Tribe

Others? Got a big idea you're keen to turn people onto?
If so, you're doing a pretty crappy job spreading it, because it's not taking hold.

There is a natural order to things and if you pay close attention you'll start to notice it.  That natural order can be modeled, mimicked and employed in our man-made world to make things run optimally.  Instead, man spends his time endlessly trying to figure things out and trying things he THINKS will work, which is fine.  Man is a creator like that.  But sometimes it's best to just go with what's tried and true.

I hope people can start to see this.

Religion is (properly conducted) the practice of realizing this truth. Our problems are of our own making, they can be overcome or carried, with help from other willing people and the 'divine'.
Politics is the practice of ignoring problems, blaming them on others, and putting them off on others, and ultimately holding a gun to the heads of those who are unwilling to participate in forced 'help'.
Sometimes one looks like the other, but in general, that's how it works.

God is an idea---a projection of a super-self The idea of a creator is similar but not the same A creator does not have to be a projection of anything, and it certainly does not have to be human-like, Thinking of 'God' as some male-oriented super-human is quite juvenile. When one understands the nature of oneself, then and only then can a further exploration of 'beyond' that is possible, Sadly, this self-knowledge is not in any book or sacred text All these answers are within 'you'

It is preposterous to imagine walking through the forest, finding a book on the ground and exclaiming "Wow! look what blind chance and vast amounts of time created!"

If you read Darwin's THEORY he plainly admits that if animal cells are found to be anything other than a very simple bag of protoplasm his theory must be dicarded. Neo-Darwinist throwbacks have co-opted his theory and have been passing it off as fact despite the fact that as science advances, it keeps pointing toward intelligent design.

Don't insult your own intelligence by proferring intelligent design on this website, of all places.

I just don't understand why you need a creator for the universe but you don't need a creator for the creator.

"It is preposterous to imagine walking through the forest, finding a book on the ground and exclaiming "Wow! look what blind chance and vast amounts of time created!"

I could not agree more because a book is made by a human, your example is stupid. Same applies for thre stop watch that a creationist finds on the beach, how could that be possibly made by chance. It couldn't,because it is inorganic, non biological and also, made by humans.

Why do you walk through a forest and find a book and exclaim it can't be made by chance but you've discarded or neglected a few hundred species of plants and animals from your example. Why do you use the blatantly stupid to drive your point home. Creationists always use the things, for which there cannot possibly be any explanation for existing without some higher intelligence, for their arguments of intelligent design.

Don't use the word transcendent either to claim that god doesn't need a creator because that term is a fabricated human notion of which there is not an atom of proof from one end of the universe to the next. It's one of the greatest mysteries to the human thought process that you cannot accept a universe without a creator but you can accept an infinitely powerful entity having always been there.

Isn't this patently absurd?

Creationists never address the unintelligent design of bilogical organisms like wisdom teeth and appendix in humans to name just two of the most blatantly obvious.

Evolution is staring you right in the face when you look at a dog, a corn cob, a stalk of wheat, a horse, a strawberry however these species have been subject to evolution by human selection, instead of natural selection. I needn't point out that breeding (human selection) is vastly faster than natural selection but at times also very unintelligent. Like boxers that can't breath, cocker spannials whose skull is too small for their brain, basset hounds whose limbs are prone to arthritis.

The concept of creationisism highlights the humans plight of mapping their own infinitisemally small experience to the universe as a whole. It's sort of cringeworthy to be honest.

Like I've said before. Pile up all the dead animals/organisms from the beginning of time where random mutation fucked over the individual and left them to die a horrible death and we'd see instantly that evolution has not been designed by a consious higher power but by unthinking laws of physics. Nature is uncaring and indeed not even observant. In other words nature couldn't give a fuck.

God isn't going to do something that destroys our free will. Otherwise our relation to him is meaningless.
If He'd created a world of perfectly developed creatures which never change, would that the seem 'natural'? How many basset hounds would we have to breed before we started wondering why changes like this never seem to happen in nature? How long would we look at the perfect stasis of bacterial life under a microscope before we wondered what was up? Etc.
Beyond that, your basic thesis is flawed. The bulk of creatures are born fit and die naturally, from old age or predators. Isn't age and the food chain just as cruel as evolution? In other words, isn't your basic complaint that the world you inhabit is imperfect?
Even if it were more perfect, if you wanted a shred of free will you'd still have a world full of horrors, large and small, no matter how perfect everything seemed.

Usury just means charging interest. You can have non-debt-based money (say, gold/silver), and still have usury.

In fact, if you want a functioning (ie, free market) economy, usury is essential, as it encourages holders of capital to forego hoarding their money to lend it for more profitable uses (as well as compensating for risk).

Of course, when I use the term "usury" I am speaking of money's issuance - not its lending.   There is absolutely no reason to have money lent into existence -- other than to empower useless bankers and their cabal.  This is the diabolical "usury" referred to.

 

And remember that most money that is "lent" in our fractional reserve system is created out of thin air, just like the Fed's initial printing.  It's something like 10-to-1 - the amount of money that a banking institution is allowed to lend (against 10% actual deposits).  This, too, is an evil form of usury.  If interest is gleaned against 100% deposits, that's a much more honest and manageable form of usury.

 

Also, if most interest paid upon debts went to serve public rather than private interests, all would benefit - not just the fortunate few who run the whole scheme.

At least some of you are aware of Sigmund's nephew Edward Bernays and his "contribution" to society and marketing in general.  Macholatte, has done his

homework and I respect that.

>>>Even the sheeple are starting to ask why we have to live in a police state to supposedly protects us from terrorists, when the government orders the border patrol to stand down and leave the border wide open...

I don't live in the USA, but it seems to me that the above is indeed a key marker of the Empire's soon-to-be demise (or perhaps we could say "transition"). 

To paraphrase what a ZHer recently observed, if you just look around you, it's amazing what the culture will actually disclose about itself.  The current US border situation tells me that the country's leadership class simply does not give a shit about the wishes of its citizens;  this is, of course, nothing new, but now the elites don't even pretend to hide their opinion.  To date, neither the Congress, or any significant fraction of the people, have actually DONE anything.  Unless something radical is done, through either legal or extra-legal means, the American Culture is openly telling the world, and itself, "We are finished now... no one here gives a shit."

August: fuckin' A right. You nailed it. Seems pretty fucking hopeless, now. Attitude among so many people I meet seems to be this: "Nothing we can do to fix it, so just party on."

This guy is a disinformation troll. The biggest problem is not misinformation. It a fucking criminal organization called the CIA, who arranged the murders of JFK and RFK, and 9/11, and the bullshit DISinformation they put out.

The CIA, NSA, etc. work for the American establishment, including the bankers, just like the Mossad and Shin Bet work for the Jewish bankers and MI5 and M16 work for the Windsors.

There are probably even more secret agencies working for all these groups that we don't know about plus all the private contractors who do contract kills for them.

JFK was killed by Lee Oswald, for his own personal reason.

It's not an either or proposition. Man can govern himself just fine without some made up fairy tale man in the sky.

Are you suggesting that someone who believes differently from you can't have principles or purpose?

Sorry to hear about your childhood brainwashing. You can overcome it if you try.
