August 20, 2017 | Steven Bannon Fired – Thank God

Steve Bannon has been fired  from the Trump team, and many are saying good reddens. It was Bannon who has been the  architect  of the most confrontational approach with Congress and has really been clashing behind the curtain. Bannon said in the interview that the main front was China: “We are in a trade war with […]

August 19, 2017 | Trump Forced to Dissolve Advisory Committees As Left Targets Businesses

The protesters in New York have succeeded in threatening any business that works with Trump. They targeted JP Morgan and Blackstone demanding they resign. This has manifested in Trump having to save face and he dissolved two advisory committees with group managers rather than have them resign under pressure. Trump said he had completed the work […]

August 16, 2017 | Wall Street Banks Stunned At Trump’s Proposed Reform

  Trump’s economic consultant adviser, Gary Cohn, has declared a return to the separation system in the US banking system in effect restoring Glass-Steagall Act which dates from the 1930s and was adopted as a result of the Great Depression yet abolished in 1999 by the Clintons.

August 15, 2017 | Government & Revolution – Is it Inevitable?

I have been warning that as governments move closer to this major event of a Sovereign Debt Crisis which begins next year with the start of the Monetary Crisis Cycle, they historically will ALWAYS, and without exception, bite the hand that has fed them. The object for government is survival of the fittest and that […]

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; What you are saying is there is no diplomacy that would work and that the only real player here is regime change and that is in the hands of the North Korean people. So what is your advice to Trump? KE ANSWER: Forget the trying to talk reason or my arsenal is bigger than […]

August 12, 2017 | Inside Every Liberal is a Totalitarian Screaming To Get Out

The winner of a essay contest, N. A. Halkides, wrote a piece which is actually very on point. I have written before saying essentially the same position that those on the right seek liberty and justice for all because their greatest dream is to be free and left alone to pursue this gift of life. […]

August 11, 2017 | The Monetary Crisis Cycle Comes in Two Flavours

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; I attended the Paris conference of the BIS when you were the keynote speaker. You delivered a forecast that was probably too far ahead for its time. You said the euro would go through and it would first drop but then peak with deflation in 2008 after the markets crash from 2007. […]

August 9, 2017 | North Korea – Beware August 2017

  I have warned in the Cycle of War reports that for whatever reason, August is always the number one period where war tends to begin. Indeed, the world is holding its breath as fears rise with the crisis over North Korea potentially escalating in to global war after Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un made threats […]

August 5, 2017 | Keeping 30 days Worth of Cash Applies Worldwide

QUESTION:  On Aug. 2 in your blog that you stonily recommend that everyone keep 30 days worth of cash was that just for the Eu? Thank You S ANSWER:  No. Even FDR closed the banks.

August 4, 2017 | Saint-Tropez – The Billionaire’s Harbor is Empty

When you impose drastic and excessively high taxes to get the “rich” and their yachts, they just sail away. Saint-Tropez, which was known as the “Billionaire’s Harbor” is just about empty. The yachts sailed off to Italy and Spain abandoning the French Riviera. The local government is pleading with Macron to intervene. They say revenue […]

August 3, 2017 | Is the Federal Government a Sovereign or a Corporation?

QUESTION:  Is it true that the Federal Government is nothing more than a corporation? I have read that the “organic act of 1871” replaced our government with a corporation. I have to believe that with your knowledge of history you are aware of this. Does that mean all laws passed since that time are nothing […]

August 2, 2017 | North Korea Prepares for World War III

The risk of war with a true madman at the head of North Korea continues to escalate.

The agency had found that Volkswagen had intentionally programmed turbocharged direct injection diesel engines to activate some emissions controls […]

July 29, 2017 | Russian Sanctions – The Start of World War III?

The Russian sanctions being pushed by Congress demonstrates the most unprofessional comprehension of how to manage an economy I have ever seen. These sanctions are effectively economic war and will find that Europe will be forced to side with Russia. This is all because of the press like CNN. To get ratings they are indeed […]

July 28, 2017 | The Month-End Closing for July 2017

The dollar correction for this Year from Political Hell is still in motion, but there is no major change in trend that is at hand.

July 27, 2017 | Britain to Raise Retirement Age to 68 to Try to Save Pensions

  The Work and pensions secretary David Gauke have revealed that parliament proposes to raise the pension age to 68. The pension crisis that is brewing throughout Western culture reflects the insanity of lowering interest rates to try to “stimulate” the economy. This policy has set the stage for the next great crisis brewing, which […]

July 26, 2017 | Browder – Russia – Trump – Safra

  William Felix Browder is all over the news trying to play into the whole Russian/Trump affair muddling the waters. Browder founded Hermitage Capital to invest exclusively in Russian companies.

July 24, 2017 | China – A Different Central Bank Altogether

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; I believe you once said at your conference that you were surprised when you were asked to fly to Beijing to meet with the central bank because you were not an academic, but a trader.

July 23, 2017 | Is Trump Draining of Filling the Swamp?

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Trump appoint another ex-Goldman Sachs guy as the head of the SEC. Some say he is not draining the swamp but filling it. Care to comment?

July 20, 2017 | Paris Climate Accord = Junk Science

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; I read a piece on the Paris Climate agreement that said climate experts now warn that an increase of more than 2 degrees Celsius could bring about irreversible consequences, including unpredictable superstorms and crippling heat waves. That seems to be anti-cyclical. How do they create such “science” without proof? PL ANSWER: They just […]

July 19, 2017 | The Unconstitutionality of the Income Tax the Supreme Court Ignores

QUESTION: I read that the income tax violates the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination. It seems logical on the surface, but nobody has gotten away with that that I have ever heard.

July 18, 2017 | Navigating the Business Cycle = Prosperity

The key to the future is understanding (1) the past and (2) how everything functions. Sure there is a risk of a Dark Age after 2032. Hopefully, we can learn from the past to push things in the right direction at least for once. For whatever reason, the people who like to run government are […]

July 17, 2017 | Understanding Time & the Kondratieff Wave

QUESTION: Dear Martin,   I am a reader of your blog and attendee of some of your conferences. I am quite impressed about the timing of your forecasting arrays.
