The Fate of Office: Last-In Gets All the Blame

By admin / April 22, 2016

  Herbert Clark Hoover (1874 – 1964) was the 31st President of the United States (1929–33). He was elected on Tuesday, November 6, 1928, and took office in 1929. He was blamed for 1929 although he was not its cause. Whoever wins this year’s Presidential election will be blamed for what the establishment has caused. People […]


1936 & 2016 Cleveland Republican Conventions – Will 2017 be like 1937?

By admin / April 16, 2016

Perhaps it is just cyclical, but the Cleveland Republican Convention will be the first time that Cleveland has held a political convention since the fateful 1936 election, just prior to the 1937 peak in the recovery from the Great Depression. This has the potential to be very bad for the city insofar as it will expose […]


The Other Side of a Phase Transition

By admin / April 16, 2016

QUESTION: Dear Marty, Whether in a Phase-transition or a Slingshot Move in the Dow, you made it very clear that such moves will be driven by capital inflows to the USA due to the alternative flight to quality to the private sector, both internationally and domestically. It is now just so obvious, it is unfolding […]


Why Are the U.S. Elections So Important?

By admin / April 11, 2016

Those in Washington like to blow their own horn by claiming the American president is the “leader of the free world,“ but all they do is talk among themselves and the journalists covering politics in Washington who do not actually investigate anything. Let’s just look at this chart as if it were a market. Notice that […]


Yellowstone National Park & the Super Volcano

By admin / March 28, 2016

Many people have written emails to ask if we have a model on Yellowstone National Park’s potential for the largest volcano eruption in history. A new study provides evidence of 12 volcano eruptions in about 3 million years, which suggests that Yellowstone’s super volcano can erupt catastrophically on a much shorter cycle of about every 250,000 years. […]


Government is Always Dishonorable

By admin / March 26, 2016

QUESTION: Marty; It seems like government always has some covert agenda. The exposure of the FBI lying about being unable to hack the iPhone Apple is just typical. The global warming issue clearly seems to be a tax agenda. They taxed cigarettes saying they were trying to help society. When revenues declined, they want to […]


The Republican Establishment is Destroying the Party of Reagan

By admin / March 15, 2016

Many emails have come in asking how in the world our computer predicted 2016 would be sheer political chaos years in advance. Our political models correlate to the economy as does war. This is not about being clairvoyant. This is about the simple facts. People demand change when their standard of living continually declines. Likewise, […]


Muslim Immigrants Want Swiss to Change the Flag Because it is a Christian Symbol

By admin / March 14, 2016

Muslim immigrants will petition for a referendum in Switzerland to change the national flag. They argue it is a Christian symbol and the flag should represent the separation between church and state. Well, what about the Swiss Guard who protects the pope? Less than 40% of Swiss are Catholic. This too would then offend the majority somehow. […]

By admin / March 11, 2016

The man who made Wall Street famous was John Gutfreund, which he always pronounced as GOOD-friend, has died at the age of 86 who became known as “King of Wall Street” back in 1985 for building the Investment Bank and bond trading house of Salomon Brothers into the number one underwriter in the world, the […]


Rome & the Birth of the United States

By admin / March 10, 2016

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Are you saying they never intended to create a democracy since the founding fathers created the Electoral College? ANSWER: Correct. We have a republic and not a democracy, despite the fact they call this a democracy. You vote for delegates to represent you. The rules allow them to defeat any public choice […]
