Martin Armstrong: Global unrest until 2032
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Martin_armstrong-forecaster-2

(TRUNEWS) Renegade economist Martin Armstrong says America — and the rest of the world — will experience 16 years of civil unrest, not fading until 2032.
Armstrong’s statements were made during an exclusive interview with Rick Wiles of TRUNEWS   on Monday, while sharing his analysis of the war, civil unrest, and business cycles; and the future they predict for the United States.
In addition to four election cycles of civil unrest and social upheaval, Armstrong said economic power will have also shifted from the US to Asia by 2032, seeing an initial shockwave as early as 2018 — and going into full swing by 2020.
Martin Armstrong: “This is when, what you’ll most likely see is a very sharp, first a decline in the dollar right now, then the dollar will turn around and go up dramatically, and as it goes up dramatically thats when you get the political reforms, for example you had Bretten Woods, Roosevelt confiscated gold, devalued the dollar in 1934 because the dollar went up so high. 1985 what do you see? The dollar went up so high the British pound went up fell to par, what was the result? They formed G5, at the Plaza Accord. So, theres always some sort of major upset, and 2018 is when that comes into play. So from there on were looking at serious changes, if the dollar goes up very sharply the two countries that are against the dollar being a reserve currency are effectively China and Russia. But, I can tell you whats going on behind the curtains already is that the Federal reserve is complaining that the dollar shouldn’t be the reserve currency because they get lobbied that they can’t raise interest rates for the domestic economy, because its going to hurt other countries. So, ya know, were beginning to realize that when the dollar is the only game in town, what happens is that you lose domestic policy objectives for international.”
What does this bode for the future of the US dollar and its seat at the head of the global economy? Could a two tier dollar, one international one domestic, be introduced to the US? Martin Armstrong said this prospect is very likely; that it would not be controlled by the US; and be backed by a basket of currencies similar to the current system of Special Drawing Rights (SDRs).
Martin Armstrong: “..Whether it’ll be a dollar is debatable. But I believe the ultimate solution will be some sort of a basket of currencies, that is not dependent upon any one individual currency, will become the reserve. And then each countries currency will float against that, that makes the most sense.”
During the interview Martin Armstrong also said:

  • Governments and crony capitalists have majorly manipulated markets since 1970.

  • World is currently ripe for revolution, people want change, will take any change.

  • GOP establishment have lost ability to control Republican party, and will likely fracture before 2020.

  • 2016 election signals rise in anti establishment third party activity.

  • Major swings in third party activity every 52 years.

  • Witnessing final stage of socialism, Marxist system in complete collapse.

  • Tax rate is directly correlated to GDP; higher tax rate — lower the GDP.

  • American is in decline, every empire must fall.

  • Super powers throughout history and the economic shifts: Rome fell to Constantinople, Constantinople fell to India, India fell to China, China fell to Britain, Britain fell to USA, USA is currently falling to China, real GDP will soon surpass US.

  • China rose, and Russia did not, because Beijing introduced parts of Western capitalism including business ownership and partially refrained from major market manipulation.

  • Civil unrest cycle peaks in 2020.

  • Europe may fall to Islam. Mohammad #1 name in London for new kids.

  • USA will likely break up, country has become too divided by social and cultural values.

  • EU will likely fall apart. Brexit and separation movements will succeed if elections are not rigged.

  • War cycle heating up; as global depression spreads so will war. Middle East will be focus, as well as Russia, Ukraine and Turkey. Japan and China will have showdown over control of Asian Sphere. Battle against ISIS and radical Islam looming.

  • Saudi Arabia is finished. Middle East’s ultimate example of whats wrong with socialism.

  • Business cycle turned down on September 30th 2015, will bottom by 2020.

  • Business cycle turned down Sept 30 2015, 4 year decline bottoming by 2020.

  • Next economic crisis will hit the bond market, not the stock market, as governments — both locally and nationally — default from their debt burdens.
  • 4 elections which can shake the world: 1) June 23rd British referendum. 2) November American elections 3) April/May 2017 French elections. 4) August 2017 German elections.

  • Martin Armstrong ended the interview by noting that the period between 2017 and 2020 will be the most dangerous time of the next decade. He said he plans to stay in the US, and highly recommends any stable area where the population does not heavily rely on government and is not overly socialistic.

For the full interview listen to the Monday, May 2nd edition of TRUNEWS.

Martin Arthur Armstrong is the the former chairman of Princeton Economics International Ltd., once leading multinational corporate advisor with offices in Paris, London, Sydney, Hong Kong and Tokyo. He was hailed as Economist of the Decade and was Hedge Fund Manager of the year in 1998 after correctly forecasting the collapse of Russia that led to the implosion of Long Term Capital Management. His advice has been sought by numerous governments with regards to the global economy from China to even the US Congress. Armstrong is the developer of the Economic Confidence Model based on business cycles and best known for calling the crash of 1987 to the very day. He was subsequently imprisoned for refusing to turn this predictive algorithm over to the US government, and his story has since been chronicled in the recent documentary “The Forecaster” .

The “Trump Effect” – Fox News Joins Macy’s On The Losing End of Anti-Trump Efforts… - Sun May 01, 2016 8:46 pm

The “Trump Effect” – Fox News Joins Macy’s On The Losing End of Anti-Trump Efforts…

Posted on May 1, 2016 by sundance
CNN has the strongest surge in ratings in the past 14 years and now beats Fox News in the all important category of 25-54 year old viewership.  That age category drives the ad revenue determinations for the industry.
Fox News can’t say they were not warned this would be an outcome of their insufferable decision to continue promoting a media narrative in opposition to Donald Trump. The same thing happened to Macys Department Store after they dropped Trump.
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Roger-ailes Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Trump-media-wall
(Via CNN) CNN ranked #1 in cable news in prime time in April. CNN beat Fox News for the fifth time in the last eight months in M-Su prime time (four of the past eight in M-F prime) among adults 25-54.  The last time CNN had this many prime time wins in an eight-month period versus Fox News was over 14 years ago (Nov. 2001).
CNN also handily topped MSNBC this month in all dayparts, with CNN besting MSNBC for the 22nd straight month in Total Day (among both total viewers and among adults 25-54) and in prime time (among 25-54).  In total viewers, CNN has now beaten MSNBC for the fifth straight month (or seven out of eight months) in prime time.  CNN continued to top MSNBC by wide margins during the day (9am-4pm) – posting a +36% advantage in total viewers (630k vs. MSNBC’s 464k) and +58% more among adults 25-54 (161k vs. 102k).
In April, CNN had the most growth of any television network (cable or broadcast) among both total viewers and adults 25-54, increasing triple digits in prime time.  Among ALL cable networks in April, CNN ranked #7 in total viewers in M-F prime time.  In Total Day, CNN was also up vs. last year, increasing +59% in total viewers and +48% among adults 25-54.  (read more )
(Via WJ ) “Anecdotal evidence suggests a growing number of Fox viewers have been angered at the cable outlet’s perceived move to the left the last couple years, as well as its frequent criticisms of Republican presidential primary front-runner Donald Trump,” wrote Cheryl Chumley on WND . “(Megyn) Kelly, for example, came under public fire for her questioning of Trump during an August debate on Fox about his past treatment of women, and for the ensuing public spat that waged between her and the billionaire businessman for months.”
“The world of broadcast and cable television is being buffeted on all sided by competition from numerous other media sources and is hemorrhaging viewership. The odds of Fox recovering or growing their audience after the primary season is over is exceedingly slim,” wrote Steve McCann on The American Thinker.  (read more )

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Sheep REPLY: The biggest problem is that we are fighting Marxism. Government wants to assume the power to herd you like sheep. The Economic Confidence Model (ECM) proves that they cannot alter society. The business cycle has defeated everyone from politicians to investors and goldbugs. No matter what you show these people, they either ignore or demonize it because they refuse to accept failure. They are incapable of altering their biases.
The business cycle will always win for only fools ignore it. Here we have Hillary promising the same textbook-Marxist policies to increase spending and raise taxes on the rich while hunting everyone (besides the bankers) for money for taxes. Ronald Reagan’s “trickle-down” economics, which the Clintons bash, produced a real 3.5% GDP growth during his administration. Barack Obama will probably come in at 1.5% GDP growth rate. No matter what you show these people, they do not get it because they do not want to. They cannot run for office without promising more failed political formulas. They cannot depart from that mantra, and as such, we are moving in a profound economic decline that will not end well.

Would that be for President or for President?
In the aftermath of Benghazi combined with Aaron Klein’s revelations that some of the illegal Clinton emails were transmitting his location prior to his death, should we not question the wisdom of anyone who would support Clinton’s run for the Presidency? And when we look all of the other criminal activities by this sociopath, shouldn’t we question the sanity and character of anyone who would support Clinton in this critical time in the history country?
The following is a partial list of Clinton supporters and this small, but representative sample size of Clinton supporters should make America realize that stopping her run for the Presidency is as important, if not more so, than it is to get Donald Trump elected.
So, just who supports Hillary?

#1 The Criminal Federal Reserve Supports Hillary Clinton

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Brainard
Lael Brainard, hoping the public would not notice the overt support the Federal Reserve has put behind Hillary Clinton through Brainard’s patronage.
Despite the fact that the Federal Reserve state  that all of their decisions are free from political influences, Hillary Clinton has been the recipient of several donations from a well-known and top Federal Reserve official.
For nine years, at a time when Lael Brainard was at the Brookings Institution, she has made donations to Hillary. Moving forward to 2014, after serving as a senior official at the US Treasury Department, Brainard was appointed to the Washington-based Federal Reserve’s board of governors, yet Brainard continued her support despite the overt policy of the Federal Reserve Board to remain aloof from politics.

#2 Virginia Governor, Terry McAuliffe and his Merry Band of 200,000 ex-cons Support Hillary

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Mcauliffe-and-clinton
Gov. Mcauliffe has delivered 200, 000 ex-con voters in the swing state of Virginia.
Virginia Governor, Terry McAuliffe (D), who, according to T he Washington Post  is reporting that on April 22, 2016, signed an executive order enabling more than 200,000 ex-cons who have completed their sentences and have been released from supervised probation or parole, to register to vote in the upcoming presidential election.
McAuliffe has previously reinstated 18,000 nonviolent felons who have previously  had their voting rights terminated. Now, McAuliffe’s latest executive order reinstates voting rights to all violent felonsThe reinstated rights even apply to felons convicted in another state prior to moving to Virginia.
McAuliffe’s Executive Order is clearly intended to benefit Democrats and Hillary Clinton. The strongest demographic supporting Clinton are African Americans. In Virginia, 25% of African Americans have been permanently banned from voting because they’re convicted felons.
To leave no doubt as to the motivation behind this Executive Order, McAuliffe is a close and personal friend of Hillary. McAuliffe recently raised $2 million at their McLean home for the Clinton Foundation.

#3 Gilbert Chagoury, the Front Man for Boko Haram

Some information needs no elaboration. Consider the two following tweets in order to accurately assess the content of the character of the man who donated $5 million to the Clinton campaign.

#4 Vladimir Putin and the Russian Government/Military

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Putin-and-clinton
An intimate moment between two major partners, Putin and Clinton, in the transfer of nuclear material between two hostile countries.
Go to the youtube channel owned by dutchsinse . He makes a very compelling case that several ranches, not just Bundy’s and Hammond’s have been under assault in order to procure precious metals. In the following youtube video, dutchsinse asks the following question:“Let’s just call it what it is. Human greed is at stake here. Who is going to get the gold back there in the back country? Who is going to get the uranium?”
One of the big problems in America today is that “public servants” like Hillary Clinton actually represent a foreign enemy masquerading as a domestic public servant.
I will go one step further than Donald Trump’s assertion that Clinton is a criminal and state that Hillary Clinton is this generation’s Ethel Rosenberg and has committed heinous acts of treason against the people of the United States.
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Cfr-hillary

Hillary Clinton, the Ethel Rosenberg of her generation. Clinton sold uranium to the Russians while serving as the Secretary of State and this is what both the Bundy and the Hammond Ranch Affair is all about. 

A former key member of the Obama administration and current Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, has proven herself to be the Ethel Rosenberg  of her generation. You may recall your U.S. history as Ethel Rosenberg sold nuclear secrets to the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War. In an act every bit as egregious as Ethel Rosenberg’s treason, Hillary Clinton sold uranium to the Russians while serving as the Secretary of State. Ironically, the original source on this treasonous act committed by Clinton was none other than the liberal rag we call the  New York Times .

The proof is undeniable that Hillary Clinton committed the treasonous act of selling uranium to the Russians while Secretary of State , as reported in the New York Times. The Russian blood money, as reported, is being held in an offshore account and is being used to fund her run for the Presidency.
From the New York Times….

“A Uranium One sign that points to a 35,000 acre ranch by John Christensen, near the town of Gillette, Wyoming. Uranium One has the mining rights Mr. Christensen’s property.”    This is proof of more BLM chicanery which will involve multiple BLM ranches.
The New York Times further asserts that members of the Canadian mining industry, who have supported Clinton’s campaign, financed and sold off to the Russians a company known as Uranium One. Uranium One is directly responsible for transferring uranium from BLM land to the Russians through an off-shore holding company. Again, according to the NY Times, the Russians, through three separate transactions, acquired Uranium One, while paying off the Clintons and their Canadian partners from 2009-2013.  The business deal also involved paying Bill Clinton $500,000 dollars for a speech on energy which was delivered in Moscow.

How Does Clinton Stay Out of Prison?

While appearing on the Today show, Clinton was asked by Matt Lauer, “They are clinging to the hope that the way they will be able to deal with that, is that at some point between now and the election… that they will get to see Hillary Clinton in handcuffs… that there will be some kind of political perp walk based on your private email server.”
This was her response:
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Hillary-hancuffs-Clinton-Mocks-FBI-Investigation-Youll-Never-See-Me-In-Handcuffs-300x169
Hillary has low friends in high places that keep her out of prison.
How can she be so sure that she is not going to prison?

Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the defender of government criminals everywhere.
As the Attorney General, Lorett,a Lynch should be convening a Grand Jury. She will not do so.


To the Trump supporters, we need to spend a significant number of time and effort in dethroning the heir apparent to the Presidency. A Clinton Presidency would be worse for America, more so, than even the benefit of a Trump Presidency. Hillary Clinton is the most clear and present danger people to the United States.

Protecting Plants From Animal Damage Before It’s Too Late - Tue Apr 19, 2016 9:22 pm

Protecting Plants From Animal Damage Before It’s Too Late

The first thing deer and rabbits think when the winter starts to wane is, “I’m hungry, where is the fresh food?” Actually, they don’t even have to think about it, they know where it is. Innately, they find microclimates in a garden where plants emerge first after the soil warms up a bit. These places in your yard are where the snow melts first, such as:

  • Garden beds along a fireplace wall 
  • Near a well-used hot tub located outside 
  • Near the dryer vent
  • The south side of a large tree in sunshine
  • Along some boulders warmed by the sun edging a path or patio
  • Southern or western sunny side of a house foundation
  • Southern or western sunny side of a hill

Radiant heat emanates from these sources, hits the mulch or garden soil, and pushes plants up out of the ground.

In early spring, it still may be chilly outside, spring rains are happening, or you may be experiencing erratic weather that is warm one week, followed by a snow squall the next and back again. Considering this, the gardener may feel it’s not time to go outside and begin gardening yet. That is when the deer and rabbits are watching your microclimates very carefully to see if your Dianthus have some green leaves left on them after the winter, checking out which of your early bulbs are spiking up through the mulch, seeing if any roses, hydrangeas or sedums are pushing new succulent growth, and much more. Remember, they consider your plants as nutritional food, especially after a long winter where food was sparse. Plus, there was competition for what little food was available.
 Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Plantskydd-2
From the distance of looking out of your kitchen window or walking to your parked car, the garden beds look as if they are dormant. But if you patrolled your garden with a quick walk around the yard and a careful eye, you will see all kinds of unexpected new growth. Even with snow in your yard, microclimate areas are the first to warm up and plants emerge – with hungry deer and rabbits just waiting to seize the moment!
To prevent this problem, be proactive. Use Plantskydd Animal Repellent granular formula early in the season to send the message to browsing animals that this garden is dangerous and not worth the risk – even though food (your plant) is available.
 Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Plantskydd-3
Browsing animals smell the odor long after humans can no longer smell it. It is a fear-based repellent, once their strong sense of smell is triggered by it, they think a predator is in the area and an animal has been killed. This danger signal motivates them to quickly vacate the area and to take their young with them.
Due to the erratic early spring weather, use our granular formula. Rain or shine, you can sprinkle it right where the plants are emerging. When the most vulnerable of your plants begin to unfurl their leaves-like tulips, lilies or hostas- spray the leaves with Plantskydd ready-to-use spray (or mix up your own batch of our powder concentrate). Once the plants form flower buds, spray them again. It’s important to apply the spray when temperatures are above freezing, and the plant will be dry for 24 hours, which includes your sprinkler system.
Plantskydd  is the #1 choice of professional growers, landscapers and foresters. Proven to out-last and out-perform all other repellents, it is rainproof, so no need to re-apply after rainfall or irrigation. Plantskydd  is the first animal repellent OMRI listed ORGANIC, so it is safe for people, pets and the environment!

Rolling Plunder – How Scott Walker and Paul Ryan Plan To Sell Out Wisconsin, and the Voters are Obli - Thu Mar 31, 2016 4:54 pm

Rolling Plunder – How Scott Walker and Paul Ryan Plan To Sell Out Wisconsin, and the Voters are Oblivious…

Posted on March 30, 2016 by sundance
Wise Up and Rise Up Wisconsin
♦ Governor Scott Walker likes to display his rebel side (although it’s an illusion intended to solidify Tea-Party bona fides in optics only) by riding around on a Harley Davidson motorcycle.   After all, Harley Davidson is headquartered in Wisconsin.
Well, for now at least.
♦ Wisconsin representative, now Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, also likes to tout his form of fiscal conservatism.  However, as the former Chairman of the budgetary ways and means committee, a federal budget is also an optical illusion (hasn’t been one since ’07).
♦ Representative Paul Ryan and Governor Scott Walker along with RNC Chairman Reince Preibus promote themselves as proud Wisconsin cheese-heads; “conservatives” they say.
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Cheeseheads-walker-ryan-preibus
Well, given Paul Ryan’s full-throated endorsement and promotion for the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal (TPP), perhaps the Wisconsin working voter would like to see exactly what they have in mind for you.  Remember, each of the aforementioned has also endorsed Senator Ted Cruz – who, not coincidentally, was the co-author of the Trade Promotion Authority bill (TPA) which was the vehicle to insure TPP’s passage.
Rather than go through all of the tentacles, and difficult to understand TPP construct, let’s instead use that wonderful Scott Walker (Harley Davidson motorcycle) example to show Wisconsin voters what’s really going on.
Representative Paul Ryan and Senator Ted Cruz created the legislative vehicle for The Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership, or TPP.    The legislative vehicle for TPP is called Trade Promotion Authority, or TPA.
Both Ryan and Cruz were actually quite proud of TPA, until candidate Donald Trump made a campaign issue of the trade deal.   Senator Cruz now claims he doesn’t support TPP.
However, these trade deal constructs did not happen by accident, they were built and designed for a reason.   The wall street connections to TPP brings the presidential election race into the more broad agenda, and that’s where you find a geographical relationship which immediately connects RNC head Reince Preibus.
You see, sometimes you need to step back to see the larger picture.
The RNC/GOPe were bedfellows in 2014 along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its president Tom Donohue.  The U.S. CoC worked earnestly to get the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal constructed.  Donohue being the CEO in charge of the U.S. Business interests, via the Chamber, who were doing the actual trade deal negotiations.
The U.S. Chamber (Donohue) also needed a legislative path.  As a consequence the path needs legislatures as bill sponsors.  That’s where Paul Ryan and Ted Cruz come in to the picture.  Together in early 2015 they penned an Op-Ed which appeared in the Wall Street Journal, and also is available HERE .
How they actually worked in the House and Senate to get the trade vehicle, TPA, through the legislative system is quite remarkable.  FULL DETAILS HERE .

When we say “remarkable”, we really mean it.
When it is possible to usurp the will of the people, and simultaneously position yourself as outside of the construct therein, such Machiavellian plausible deniability should at the very least be recognized as brilliant.    TPA was a brutal scheme.  TPP is devastating to the U.S.  But the way Ryan/Cruz guided TPA through the House and Senate was brilliant nonetheless.
And that is where Wisconsinites (Preibus, Ryan, Walker) align with a unity agenda within the deal itself.  A deal constructed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, that entirely benefits Wall Street.
Can you see now how the 2014 GOPe roadmap gains increased importance, and how Presidential Candidate Scott Walker became part of the entire 2016 nomination scheme?    Follow the money.  Yes, including the Ricketts money.
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Scott-walker-harley Beyond the terrible legislation is the actual TPP trade deal itself; and beyond the TPP are the consequences to the U.S. manufacturing base and U.S. worker.
For an example of those consequences we turn to the beloved Harley Davidson.
A few years ago Harley Davidson opened a plant in Northern India, yes India .
[ Remember the Wisconsin Sikh Temple shooting – did you see those police at the CNN town hall questioning Donald Trump? ]
Coincidences are funny that way. I digress.
The Street motorcycles being sold in the U.S. will be manufactured in the Milwaukee-based company’s Kansas City facility, Wandell said. The Street bikes for international riders will be made in the company’s Bawal, India, plant that opened in 2011.
Harley-Davidson (NYSE: HOG) currently assembles motorcycles in India and Brazil to avoid tariffs, but the parts are made in America and shipped as a kit to those countries. (link )

Harley Davidson in India?  Many die-hard hog fans were worried that Harley was going to start building their bikes out of country.  Given what happened to the auto industry can you blame them for worrying.   However, that wasn’t immediately what was happening, because Harley Davidson USA knew their bikes lived and died on the reputation of being “American Iron”, despite many of the parts made over seas.
However, India has a 100+% tariff on motorcycle imports.  When combined with other import taxes and duties it all adds up to a staggering 115% cost increase to sell a U.S. manufactured Harley in India.
India also has a population over a billion people.  A very large market!  But selling an expensive bike in a poor country with a 100+% import tariff makes the market virtually untouchable.  Unless…

….“We can make (the price) more attractive in those markets by building over there,” Blankenheim said

To work around the problem, and simultaneously set themselves up for future market opportunities, Harley Davidson built a plant in India .    If the Harley is built in India it can be sold in India for less than half the price of building in the U.S. and importing it.
However, the future opportunities angle stems from India not only building their own Harleys, but also manufacturing most of the Harley’s sold on the international market as well.  Build here and export from the U.S. and you find a big tariff at the destination; but build in India and export from India and the tariffs are avoided upon arrival.
How does this help the U.S. manufacturing of Harley Davidson?  How does this help jobs here in the U.S.?  How does this help the U.S. factory worker?
It doesn’t.
But the corporate side (Wall Street / NYSE “HOG”) books of Harley Davidson look great.
See how that works?
In essence, Harley USA will build Harley’s for the USA (disclaimer: “for now”), and Harely in India will build for most the rest of the world.   They are still in the working-out-the-kinks-process part of the global plan, but it is a plan being executed.
So you might ask if India, with a billion citizen market, charges a 100% tariff on U.S. manufactured product, well, what’s the tariff the USA charges to import a motorcycle here from say, Japan?
Well, that would be 2.4%.
Yes, a measly 2.4%
But, wait, it gets better – that is going away too :
America will remove a tariff levied on Japanese motorcycles with engine displacements of over 700cc under the recently announced Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact (TPP), which includes Australia and covers 40 percent of the global economy.
The 2.4 percent duty will be eliminated five years after the multilateral trade deal takes effect, which should, in theory, reduce the price of motorcycles in the over 700cc space in America, placing the imported fare on the same level playing field as home-grown marques like Harley-Davidson, Indian and Victory. Those marques mainly focus on bikes with engine capacities of more than 700cc.
America currently imposes no tariff on imported motorbikes with engines of 700cc or lower (link)

Are you seeing the problem yet?
If the U.S. export of a Harley Davidson incurs an import tariff at the destination (say China 30%, or Vietnam 40%), but the same tariff does not apply when the import arrives from India, what nation do you think will be manufacturing the Harley Davidson motorcycles which appear in China?

Do you remember the Wisconsin Radio Host Charlie Sykes interview of Donald Trump when Sykes climbed atop his high horse and so “righteously” told Trump that Wisconsin is an Import-Export state, and tariffs hurt their economy? etc. etc. etc.
How does that Sykes gibberish look against this example now?
We are only using Harley Davidson as a representative example based on geography (Wisconsin).  This horrific Trade Deal applies nation wide in all areas of manufacturing, import and export.
Scott Walker will be fine, he’ll probably end up on Wall Street.  Speaker of the House Paul Ryan will be fine, he’ll lock in a multi-million lobbying contract.  Reince Preibus will be fine, he’s already got a rolodex filled with Global Bankers and High Financiers.
It’s the ordinary middle-class Wisconsin cheese-head voter who will be impacted.
Are they foolish enough to be co-dependents to their own financial demise?

I guess we’ll find out….

Wisconsin Values ?
Reference Notes – If you want to compare trade tariffs, examples as shared, on these motorcycles imports and exports you can go HERE to the duty calculator and select engines > 970cc (the first three duty comparison checks are free – after that the website charges for use).
Next time you are in a grocery store, pick up a package of Nabisco Fig Newtons, look at the small wording next to the ingredients and you will see “made in mexico”.  It’s the same poor trade deals that are creating the same outcomes.

Just a Reminder, this is an insurgency. – The modern enemy of Wall Street is Main Street vulgarians. The current enemy of the RNC/GOPe is not Democrats, it’s Grassroots Conservatives; Common Sense Conservatives; more vulgarians.
The Republican Party, and the Republican media apparatus, view us as their enemy. We are the enemy they need to protect themselves from:
In 2014, the RNC approved selection rules that govern how each state’s delegates are portioned out from the primaries. Under one of the changes, states holding their primaries between March 1 and March 14 will have their delegates doled out proportionately with election results, a change that will likely stymie a movement candidate.

States that have primaries on or after March 15 will be winner-take-all states.
That’s important because another RNC rule change requires that a candidate must win a majority of delegates in eight or more states before his or her name may be presented for nomination at the 2016 Republican National Convention.

With 18 GOP presidential candidates, for now, it will be that much harder for any candidate to win a majority in any state, let alone eight. (Article July 2015 )

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Gop-versus-tea-party Now, ask yourself, why would the RNC want to “stymie a movement candidate“? Who exactly does that benefit? Obviously, the “non-movement” candidate, ie “the turtle“.
Isn’t the entire reason for campaigning in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina etc. to make a movement/momentum?
In addition Rule #40 changed in 2014 from previously five needed state wins, to a newer threshold of eight (8):
Officially, it’s Rule 40 in the RNC handbook and it states that any candidate for president “shall demonstrate the support of a majority of the delegates from each of eight (8) or more states” before their name is presented for nomination at the national convention. (article March 2014 )

Again, ask yourself who does this benefit? A candidate can win seven states outright, and still not have their name presented for nomination?
These rules were made/affirmed in 2014 – Who or what exactly was the GOP concerned about blocking in 2016 that would necessitate such rules? When combined with other rule changes you can clearly identify a consolidation of power within the RNC apparatus intentionally constructed to stop the candidate of the GRASSROOTS from achieving victory.

It’s all part of their GOPe Roadmap .

New FBI Filings Reveal ‘Pending Investigation’ Into Clinton’s E-Mails is Far From Over - Sun Mar 27, 2016 4:43 pm

New FBI Filings Reveal ‘Pending Investigation’ Into Clinton’s E-Mails is Far From Over

by Chris White | 3:40 pm, March 26th, 2016

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Shutterstock_386150722-351x234 A pair of declarations submitted to a federal judge by the FBI late Friday in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit brought by Vice News reveal new details about the Bureau’s “pending investigation” into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server (“Clinton Server”) that tend to indicate the matter is far from over.
In December, Vice News filed a FOIA lawsuit against the FBI seeking to obtain information related to the Clinton Server, including:
1.  Any and all emails and other records retrieved from the server, thumb drive, and any other electronic equipment obtained either directly or indirectly from Hillary Clinton (collectively and individually the “Clinton Server”) which has not already been made public; and

4. Any and all correspondence between any person within the FBI and any person within the U.S. Department of State regarding, relating to, or referencing the Clinton Server; and

Late on Friday, the FBI filed a Motion for Summary Judgment, asking the Court to dismiss the lawsuit on the grounds that the requested information is exempt from release pursuant to FOIA Exemption 7(A) because the release of records responsive to the requests could reasonably be expected to interfere with an active law enforcement proceeding.  The FBI also filed a pair of declarations in support of its summary judgment motion to provide the Court with a more detailed explanation and justification for the assertion of FOIA Exemption 7(A) to withhold records responsive to Vice’s request.
In the first declaration, David A. Hardy, the chief of the FBI’s FOIA office, states that the FBI has withheld two records responsive to Request #4 that consist of “memoranda from the FBI to the Department of State regarding evidence” and the “purpose of these communications with the Department of State was to solicit assistance in furtherance the FBI’s investigation.”  Furthermore, the “FBI concluded that the disclosure of these records … could reasonably be expected to reveal the nature, scope, and focus of the FBI’s activities in the investigation….”
With respect to Request #1, Hardy does not reveal the specific number of responsive records, rather he simply states that any responsive records are “potential evidence in the FBI investigation, or may provide leads to or context for potential evidence.”  He goes on to state that the premature disclosure of evidence could be reasonably expected to interfere with the pending investigation because it could tip off individuals to the scope of focus of the investigation and allow them to take defensive actions and/or suppress evidence.
In addition to the Hardy Declaration, the FBI also filed a “Classified Declaration” that provides additional details in support of the FOIA exemption which the FBI states they could not provide on the public record without further adversely affecting the ongoing investigation.  The classified declaration will be reviewed by the Court in private and purports to further describe the harm associated with releasing information responsive to Request #1 and Request #4.
The information contained in the FBI’s summary judgment motion and accompanying declarations is important because it indicates that the FBI is still in the process of sorting through and gathering evidence related to the Clinton Server investigation.  The FBI states repeatedly throughout the latest court filings that it is continuing to assess the evidentiary value of “any materials retrieved for the investigation” from the Clinton Server and expresses concern about how the premature disclosure of evidence would adversely impact the pending investigation. Furthermore, the FBI’s response to Request #1 could be interpreted to indicate that the FBI did in fact recover additional materials, including possibly deleted e-mails, from the Clinton Server.
Finally, the fact that the FBI filed a “Classified Declaration” in support of its summary judgment motion tends to indicate that even more classified material exists on the Clinton Server than the over 2,000 classified e-mails we already know about.  In fact, LawNewz asked former federal prosecutor Bill Thomas to clarify the significance of the “Classified Declaration” and he said, not only is the “information being submitted to the court classified, but its really more than that, it is information that if revealed there exists ‘reasonable danger that compulsion of the evidence will expose military matters which, in the interest of national security, should not be divulged.'”
At the end of the day, this all makes Clinton’s defiant refusal to even address Jorge Ramos’ question about a potential indictment at the March 9 Democratic debate look even more like wishful thinking.  Clinton and her supporters may not want to hear it, but this e-mail issue isn’t going away anytime soon.

Is Goldman Sachs Rigging U.S. Treasury Auctions? - Thu Mar 24, 2016 3:17 pm

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 Goldman-sachs-logoGoldman Sachs is at the center of a probe into the rigging of U.S. Treasury Auctions , which was the same allegation that resulted in the Treasury shutting down Salomon Brothers in 1991. I wrote about this incident when Salomon was caught. The fact that such rigging in commodities markets was standard for decades was common knowledge. When the commodity industry took over, the practices of such schemes infested Wall Street. Suddenly, what was standard in pork bellies became standard in the U.S. Treasury auctions.
Salomon’s #1 competitor was Goldman Sachs who realized they could be shut down if they were caught doing the same game. It is my belief that this is when a strategy was developed at Goldman Sachs to do a reverse takeover of government. Suddenly, CEOs of the firm infiltrated politics with huge donations and won the prize of U.S. Secretary of the Treasury twice. Draghi is ex-Goldman and now sits at the head of the ECB. He is also a member of the Troika, as is the PM of Australia . I believe they installed people like Larry Summers and bought the Clinton White House to ensure that Glass Steagall was repealed. I believe they own Hillary right down to her pantyhose. They were involved in creating Greek debt as well as their alleged involvement in Malaysia . The German TV ZDF ran a show exposing how Goldman Sachs was ruling the world. It has been removed from the internet.
The curious fact here is that this is starting to leak out to the mainstream press. This is most likely not a coincidence and will have some ramifications, certainly for Hillary as well as Cruz given they both have connections to Goldman Sachs. Hillary has refused to release her transcripts of speeches at Goldman and Cruz “forgot” that they them lent him money. I have written before about my contest with Goldman Sachs . They kept me in prison and demanded the source code to our model. In today’s world of information, ignorance can only be a matter of choice.
The case of a former Federal Reserve Bank of New York employee Jason Gross was given ZERO jail time for leaking of confidential documents to a friend at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. That is insider trading which justified time behind bars. Despite the fact that prosecutors claimed they were disappointed, that was just a show. To put him on trial would mean he would have the right to call people from Goldman Sachs. Then the person at Goldman who obtained such documents would have to reveal what they did with them and how did the firm act upon it. They shut the whole case down, a $2,000 fine and no prison time was a whitewash to say the least.

15 Dirty Tricks The GOP Establishment Can Use to Stop Donald Trump - Fri Mar 18, 2016 2:43 pm

15 Dirty Tricks The GOP Establishment Can Use to Stop Donald Trump

by Doug Wead | 5:41 pm, March 13th, 2016

Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 12 TrumpU-e1456518255317 Doug Wead is a presidential historian who served as senior advisor to the Ron Paul presidential campaign in 2012.
Warning to the Trumpets. It ain’t over. It is just beginning.
Below are a list of tactics that Establishment Republicans may use to block the nomination of Donald Trump.  Yes, I know. If they succeed they will not win the White House but many in the establishment will make just as much money under a Democrat insider as they will with a Republican insider. So they may not care.
All they may want to do is send the message to any future “outsider” candidate, “This is our party and you need our approval to participate. If you try to do this without us we will destroy you.”
These tactics were used in 2012 to keep Libertarian insurgents from winning delegates to the Republican National Convention. The fear was that Ron Paul would be able to place his name in nomination and give a speech about capital cronyism and how big corporations use the system to corrupt free enterprise. Donald Trump can learn from our experience.
What was at stake in 2012? Money. What’s at stake now? Money.
But why will low level party stalwarts who don’t get that money play along and do the bidding of the big party leaders?
To keep their positions as State, County or Precinct Chairmen. Power. Ego. Prestige. They want that all expenses paid trip to the Republican National Convention. Booze. Free corporate gifts. A box of Godiva chocolates left on their pillow in their room each night. They know that candidates like Trump come and go but the party infrastructure , financed by companies and their lobbyists, remain forever.
Here’s what the new Trump supporters can expect. (Carefully follow the links to stories below to see the actual videos and read the details of how these things happened in 2012.)
#1) Cruz, Rubio, Kasich and Romney will cooperate with each other to help block Trump outsiders at key County and State conventions. There is nothing wrong with this. Just don’t be taken by surprise. You may have most of the delegates at the local event and still lose to this combination. Make your own deals with Chairmen and other party officials before its too late.
#2) The RNC Rules Committee will likely change the rules back to a five state requirement needed to put a name in nomination at the Convention. This will make it easier to nominate Rubio, Cruz, Kasich and even Romney. Trump operatives should block this change and keep it at eight, which was originally designed to protect Romney, the expected incumbent.
#3) Make sure that you have your own people chosen as delegates to the convention. The insiders will fight you to the death over this, saying that it doesn’t matter, that you won the primary or the caucus and so the actual delegates are bound by law to vote for you anyway. (Not true.)
They will say that the governor and the senator and the old former chairman, who has been to every RNC since Eisenhower, should be able to represent their state. Be courteous  and reasonable but you also need large numbers of your own reliable Trump supporters chosen as delegates.
Keep in mind, the only rules that bind the delegates are the rules of the party and those very delegates can change those rules.
What if there is a media hyped Trump scandal and the party votes to “unbind” the delegates on the first ballot?  Then they can vote for whomever they wish.
What if Trump does not win on the first ballot and there is a second ballot? They will then vote their real choice and you will have lost all of those states you thought you had won in primaries.
#4) The place of the caucus that selects the actual delegates who go to the district or state convention may suddenly change without your knowledge. Linked by a telephone chain the insiders will meet without you. Your folks will show up at one hotel and the meeting will take place at another.
#5) The time of the meeting may suddenly change. Your people can show up and find that the building is locked and authorities will say you are too late to be allowed in to participate. This happened many times in 2012, with hundreds of screaming voters left outside.
#6) The chairman may say “Ayes have it ,” even if they don’t. This happens at the precinct, county, district, state and even national level. What are you going to do about it? Sue? Meanwhile, their winning precinct delegation will go onto the State Convention as delegates representing your opponent .
You may appeal to the RNC for justice and they may support the cheaters because you don’t have enough of your own people as delegates serving on the Rules Committee.
#7) Off duty police may arrest and detain your newly elected Donald Trump GOP officers. Yep, that happened  to us. Your people may be kept for hours in jail cells and those who protest may be arrested as well .
#8) Precinct, County, State leaders may charge a last minute tax. This may have happened in 2012 in Alaska . Voters who had not been tipped off reportedly could not vote without paying $10. Credit cards not accepted. This worked so well at excluding voters in Alaska that Romney operatives used it in King County, Washington. They also turned away young people who did not appear on their outdated voter registration lists.
#9) If the Caucus Chairman is replaced or does not like the outcome of the vote they may suddenly declare the process invalid. For example, they may say that the new chairman is a Trump partisan and thus it is now a Trump event and the GOP insurance for the event is invalid and thus the meeting is ended. See the video above.
#10) State Conventions will prepare ballots misspelling Trump and then later discount them in the voting for those pledged delegates.
#11) Fake ballots will be distributed listing establishment names as the official Trump delegates, confusing the voters. They may also try to split the Trump slate by nominating competing Trump delegates with real names of public figures.
#12) Counting the ballots at the various conventions will be an exhausting business with delays, postponements until the next day, seals broken on the voting boxes , and all kinds of chicanery.
#13) They may cancel the voting due to weather in a key precinct that is heavily Trump, throwing the State . Even though the weather turns out to be fine in the given precinct.
#14) At convention you may find hotel rooms cancelled.They may arrange for the bus bringing your delegates to the Rules Committee to get lost and changes to convention rules may happen in your absence.
#15) When you leave the RNC don’t think it’s over. A Ron Paul delegate was detained by TSA at the airport leaving Tampa when bullets were found in their packed luggage.
The idea is to make you so sick, so weary, so beaten down that you will never, ever, even dare challenge the establishment that runs the Republican Party again. Ever.
Here is the message. It doesn’t belong to you. As in the case of the Democratic Party, it belongs to the insiders, the rich and powerful who make money from a rigged economy that favors a few at the expense of the many. Donald Trump is too independent and too unpredictable for them.
You have been warned. Good luck.
