Martin Armstrong

Martin Arthur Armstrong is current chairman and founder of Armstrong Economics. He is best known for his economic predictions based on the Economic Confidence Model, which he developed.

The Senate on Monday night approved a $2.3 trillion COVID-19 relief bill and sent it to President Trump for his signature. The legislation — which follows the passage in the House — authorizes $600 stimulus checks for people who earn less than $75,000 per year and an extra $600 payment per child. A $600 check will not pay one month’s rent, no less food for a family they put out of employment. Trump sent it back to Congress saying this was a disgrace and it should be raised to $2,000 per person.

If this were a very serious pandemic and not political, then you would see politicians doing as they are commanding. Instead, they are gathering with their families in secret. Dr. Deborah Birx traveled with family for Thanksgiving and did not stay home after canceling all the holidays for others. She met with her family at one of her vacation properties on Fenwick Island in Delaware, the Associated Press reported. Governor Cuomo of New York invited his mother for Thanksgiving but had to cancel ONLY after being caught. This is the man who said you can eat outside in a restaurant but you cannot go inside to use the bathroom, and then had to reverse that one.

Then there was the guy who started the whole lockdown who took grants from Bill Gates and his model was anything but accurate — Neil Ferguson. He ignored the lockdown he said was urgent to have sex with his married girlfriend on the side.

This Pandemic is grossly exaggerated and the average age of death of COVID-19 patients is 81. As I have written, the 1969 Hong Kong flu killed 4 million people worldwide. Still, the CDC did not call that a serious epidemic despite the fact that it was 4x greater than COVID-19.



Today, the World Health Organization is blaming global warming because of CO2. In 1969, they were blaming pollution and sulfur dioxide. Let’s be straight. Viruses have been causing plagues throughout history long before fossil fuels. Nothing these people ever say holds up over time.

This pandemic is being used to scare people, keep them home, end commuting (fossil fuel consumption), and destroy businesses all for a Green Agenda. They do not follow their own commands because they know this is all political.
