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

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.

No negative assertion can be proven.

Why are we even talking about the fictional diety some people call God here in this forum?  Freud said belief in God

was a mass delusion - he was indeed correct.  Before you try to lampoon me for saying so recognize the double standard

in place... if I don't believe in a god, I'm labeled a heathen by Christians and accused of "not seeing the light"... being

enlightened, not saved, etc.  When I inversely criticize belief in god, the Christians go bananas on me... say it's blastophemy,

and in general get their panties in a bunch.  I just hate double standards... in particular from people who cannot prove

the existence of a fictional diety they claim is real... just hate it.

Jerome Lester Horwitz's picture

There's that word again...what the hell is a diety? A movement of dieters? The belief in diets?

Terminus C's picture

They used to decide all sorts of religious stuff at Diets, maybe that is where the confusion come from.

Hayb - Freud said belief in God was a mass delusion

Freud's nephew and scion to the NWO, Edward Bernays, built the intellectual framework to see to it that mass delusion was institutionalized across all cultures. Why on earth would they think this so important? Why is it important to destroy a man's spirituality with God and replace it with idol worship and connection with the state?

Undisciplined, non-intellectual, and amoral people (Bernays claimed) are vulnerable to influences of which they are not even aware and accordingly are highly susceptible to want things they do not actually need.

"Have you heard about evolution?"  You mean the quack theory which demands we should look at SOME fossils but not elongated skulls and skeletons which are 8-20' tall?  If you choose to believe your daddys' daddys' daddy was a chimp, um, good for you?  Way to go?  "Whatever happens after the collapse I just hope that your kind goes extinct with the banker/politician scum."  So this is/you are the end product of "evolution", shouldvekilledthem, shouldvekilledthem, shouldvekilledthem, SHOULDVEKILLEDTHEM?

You're pathetic. All the living things on earth are related. there is fucking evidence all over the place and in our DNS. 

Belittling me because my chosen "nickname" highlights how unintelligent you are.

Your vile language proves you don't even believe the tripe you're peddling...

BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

Oh god no, not the giant skeletons. No offence mate, but either you are fucking stupid or the entire field of science spanning several hundred years has just pretended that something that would be unfathomably fascinating , doesn't exist.

Tyler, that's it, it's time to institute an IQ test with a pass mark of 40 before you're allowed to get an account. That'll get rid of the creationists, the giant skeleton believers, the reptilian shape shift believers, the UFO base believers, the HAARP believers. This forum has just got too whacky.

Really is amazing that we can be in the year 2014 and a seeming reasonaly large percxentage of people are either fucking stupid or insane.

"This forum has just got too whacky."  Buh-bye!  See ya!  Face it, you and the other God bashin' atheists are getting pummelled.  Maybe y'all can find a room over at or

Why are athiests so intolerant to other religions? Why do they think they have a higher IQs?

BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

Because the stories sold to theists are infantile and worse still, theists believe them. It's hard not to feel intellectually more superior, not because I am smart but because thesist can be so horribly gullible and it's hard not to draw the conclusion that they're a bit slow.

Creationism, for example. If you could sit on a space ship in the vicinity of the solar system at the point in time god creates the earth would it literally just materialize instantly?

If you could be present on the earth at the point in time god creates adam and eve would that also be like a magic show and they materialise, out of thin air, instantly.

You wonder by atheists are intolerant? You wonder why athesist think they have higher IQ's. Are you fucking serious?

Getting pummelled, by your invisible grey bearded skyman. Can you hear yourself.

Dickwad. Evolution does not disprove the existence of God.

You're right. Reality does that just fine.

Hayabusa's picture

Don't be stupid... in order to be real it must be proven using the scientific method.  Disprove this:  There are little green men on Mars.

Evolution is a scientific fact that can be proven to everyone... God is not and therein lies the difference.  This is a thinking mans' forum

those of you who wish to thump the bible and spread fiction get the hell out!

I am replying to those who use science as a weapon to "dis prove g.o.d.) I do not know the backround of our athiest fellow ZH'ers, but I would remind those who have trained in science to  not confuse the leaf of a tree for the today is mostly experts in one litttle area of that leaf, few take the time to step back from the leaf much less the tree and try to observe the infinate forrest. observe the single cell, and tell me that one cell evolved from inert matter..that DNA (information) came before the cell (as it must have)..that other complex organic substrates were somehow common in nature prior to that cells creation (never observed conditions seen in nature sinse), let alone cell membranes ,cell wall on and on.

the order of magnitude I would humbly submit is like taking a lunar lander, exploding it - and then expecting it to reorganize if given enough time, and yet the lunar lander is much less complex than a simple cell.

BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

The lunar lander is inorganic fuck wit, it cannot self organise, whereis biological organisms can and do. Fuck me into another century you creationists are stupid.


overmedicatedundersexed's picture

gotta good laugh at bringon with this comment..I can only say as a creationist exactly!!



BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

So you don;t know the difference between ORGANIC and INORGANIC.

Go back to school son or at least read a few books.

Jerome Lester Horwitz's picture

The theory of evolution is now a scientific fact...and here I stupidly thought this was a thinking man's forum. Care to expound further on the existence of a diety? LMFAO!!

More_sellers_than_buyers's picture

Very closed minded..."Science works by experiments. It watches how things behave. … Do not think I am saying anything against science: I am only saying what its job is. And the more scientific a man is, the more he would agree with me that this is the job of science — and a very useful and necessary job it is too. But why anything comes to be there at all, and whether there is anything behind the things science observes — something of a different kind — this is not a scientific question. If there is “Something Behind,” then either it will have to remain altogether unknown to men or else make itself known in some different way. The statement that there is any such thing, and the statement that there is no such thing, are neither of them statements that science can make. And real scientists do not usually make them." CS Lewis

I will not be drawn into another debate on the existence of God, people are pretty entrenched with their own views.

However, I will remind everyone that a really smart guy (Roger Penrose) calculated the odds of everything coming together just so, allowing us (and everything else around us) to be here at the mind numbing probability of...1010123 to 1.

Thats a really BIG number by the

Leaving everyone to ponder the proposition of another great truth (the authors name escapes me) that says, that which cannot be explained by science or logic can only be explained by philosophy or religion ;-)

XitSam's picture

You are using Argument from Authority.  The implied complement of 1:1010123-1 does not mean god. 

general ambivalent's picture

Not really, he is simply referencing while making an argument. he's not saying it is necessarily true because an authority said so.

This is one of the weaknesses of science and modern atheism, reduction of all communication to arguments of fallacy. Or, the fallacy fallacy.

XitSam's picture

If he was doing as you claim, he wouldn't need to say "a really smart guy" to let us know an authority was speaking.

nmewn's picture

Like I said, I won't be drawn into this again, so second to the last word on this. He is a self described atheist & a mathematical physicist. Its not for me to dispute his calculations, it falls to you.

And he is an honest man in my estimation by the way, by virtue of the fact he didn't have to publish his findings ;-)

Terminus C's picture

Actually, it is 50-50

It either was created by God or it was not.

As for buddy's calculation... calculate the odds that you would be born. (hell, I'll even give you a free pass and say the world is only 6,000 years old).

nmewn's picture

Well, Penrose calculates it otherwise, not using philosophy or ideology but math.

And a year (time) can be a relative thing, our year is different than say Mercurys or Jupiters ;-)

Terminus C's picture

Pick any legnth of year you'd like :)

Penrose is much like St. Augustine, he has an agenda and he fulfills it.  He does brilliantly intellectual work but relies to heavily on certain assumptions.  One cannot prove the existance or non existance of God.  What we can prove is that we are tiny little microbes in the overall scheme of things and that there is so much to this universe that we will never know, but have the distinct luck and pleasure of trying to know it.


August's picture

>>>What we can prove is that we are tiny little microbes in the overall scheme of things.

You claim to know "the overall scheme of things", and that you "can prove" how we fit into it?

You really should contact a good publisher.

Or better editor.

"Evolution is a scientific fact".....  There he goes again....  I suppose man made global warming is also a scientific fact.  lmao....   But but but all the scientists say it's so...despite all the evidence  and fraud to the contrary...

"Have you heard about evolution"

Of course I've heard of that preposterous, made up fairytale.

But I fail to see what that has to do with God.

Very nice and open minded comment - unlike those hateful, close minded retarded believers you mock.

Agreed, the religious fucks are just as evil as their statist cousins. I hope they finish each other off good and hard.

Are you one of those atheists who's been going to church recently? An atheist+? The Atheists Front of Judea? Or the Front of Judean Atheists?

joethegorilla's picture

Are you talking about changes in traits within successive generations of the same species? Is that the evolution you are talking about? Or are you saying that we all evolved from a common cell through happenstance in nature? Is that what you mean by evolution?

Tell us how DNA came to be please. You can give us the facts or your beliefs.

I agree that people are born of nature and have the freedom of natual law.  For example, we have the right to plant a seed, grow it, dry the flower and smoke it if we want.  No government can rightly take that away.

Denying that you are a citizen of the "United States" won't make a difference.  Some legal wrangling or beurocratic phrasing is no defence against a well organized and well armed government determed to expand its scope at the expense of natural person's liberty.

Unfortunately government power and natual person's liberty is a dynamic interplay that is always in flux.  We have to constantly push back against government usurpation of power just to keep a balance.  The government is trying harder, and we must also.

chumbawamba's picture

Yes, you are absolutely right.  It doesn't matter what you think, it's what they think because they have the guns and the badges and the "legitimacy" to use them.

However, they do seem to obey their own law.  Recently people have been submitting affidavits with passport applications and getting properly recognized by US Inc. as state citizens, i.e. non-resident aliens to the United States.  Interesting things were alleged to be happening with court cases.  I've seen evidence of it second-hand: a woman I'm helping with her foreclosure battle in SoCal had the entire process put on hold when she filed an affidavit of status (as a state citizen) into the record, and this was after judgement against her in the unlawful detainer action was already basically rendered.  Something happened and the sheriff never came to post the eviction order on her door.  We're still waiting to see what happens.

I ain't saying anything yet as it's still too early, but I am actively investigating.  I'll report further once I have properly established my own status.

Bottom line: for all the effort of the one guy hacking at the root for every thousand tangled up in the branches, the system is in fact beginning to crack.  I have first-hand knowledge that the California Attorney General actually made an appearance in a Los Angeles County Appellate court to defend against a gaping hole in the California Vehicle Code that would make a nullity all current and past red light camera tickets and end that fraud in California for good.  This is how important it is for them to maintain the money machine, so much so that the California State A.G. would take valuable time out of her schedule assisting the TBTF banks to foreclose illegally on millions of California homeowners to make it down to a lowly county appeals hearing.

It's only a matter of time now.  When, not if.

Be careful what you wish for ;)
