The beginning of a new year is supposed to be all about hope, right? And I would certainly like to tell you that 2019 is going to be America’s best year ever and that everybody is going to receive a double portion of blessing, prosperity and happiness, but that simply would not be true. Unfortunately, the truth is that the elements for a “perfect storm” are rapidly coming together and 2019 is going to be an exceedingly challenging year. Of course 2018 wasn’t exactly a wonderful year either. I really like how Dave Barry made this point in his most recent article

We can summarize 2018 in two words:

It boofed.

We’re not 100 percent sure what “boofing” is, despite the fact that this very issue was discussed in a hearing of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. All we know for certain about boofing is that it is distasteful and stupid.

As was 2018.

But as bad as 2018 was, the year that has just started threatens to greatly surpass it.

Let’s start by talking about politics. According to Axios, Donald Trump is currently the subject of 17 different investigations.

Yes, you read that correctly.

We have never seen anything like this in American history. Even during the Nixon era there was some measure of restraint, but at this point they are trying to come up with any angle that they possibly can to get rid of Donald Trump.

And the left truly believes that this is the year that they are going to get rid of him. In fact, the Hill just published an article containing 30 predictions for 2019, and these were the top three

  • Donald J. Trump’s presidency will not survive 2019;
  • The downward trajectory of every aspect of his tenure indicates we are headed for a spectacular political crash-and-burn — and fairly soon;
  • His increasingly erratic and angry behavior, his self-imposed isolation, his inability and refusal to listen to smart advisers that he hired, all are leading him to a precipice;

For a moment, let’s assume that the left is successful and they get rid of Trump. Will everything go back to normal?

No, Mike Pence will become president and they will immediately start investigating him. And then if a Democrat wins in 2020, revenge-seeking Republicans will investigate the living daylights out of whoever enters the White House.

Personally, I can’t understand why so many Democrats are lining up to run for president. Are they absolutely insane? After what has been done to Trump, his family, Brett Kavanaugh and countless others, why would anyone want to subject themselves to such endless public torture?

We are rapidly getting to the point where America will be ungovernable. No matter who is in power, there is going to be anger, strife, discord and resentment. Tens of millions of Americans hated Barack Obama and did not consider him to be their president, and now tens of millions of Americans hate Donald Trump and do not consider him to be their president. Our political institutions are breaking down, and faith in the system is at an all-time low.

But at least economic conditions have been relatively stable, and this has done much to pacify most Americans in recent years.

Unfortunately, economic conditions are really starting to slow down, and big corporations are beginning to announce large scale layoffs. Just like we saw during the last recession, eventually there will be millions of Americans that lose their jobs, and mortgage defaults will spike dramatically once again.

And just like in 2008, the stock market is starting to plunge in a major way.

2018 was the worst year for the stock market in a decade, we just witnessed the worst month of December for Wall Street since the Great Depression, and at this point approximately 12 trillion dollars of global stock market wealth has been wiped out.

And the really bad news is that things are likely to get even worse in 2019.

History has shown that tough economic conditions make military conflict more likely, and the world continues to teeter on the brink of war.

In the Middle East, Turkish tanks have been lining up along the Syrian border in anticipation of a possible invasion, and Syrian forces have been massing to defend against a potential attack. Elsewhere, Hezbollah and Hamas seem to be in a race to see who can start a war with Israel first. If war does break out, Israel may find themselves fighting both of them simultaneously.

As for the United States, our relationships with both Russia and China are rapidly deteriorating. The Russians continue to prepare for a coming military conflict with the United States, and the Pentagon is officially freaked out by the new hypersonic missiles that the Russians have just developed. Meanwhile, the trade war with China continues to escalate and one Chinese general just suggested that the Chinese military should not be afraid to “sink two U.S. aircraft carriers”.

And let us not forget Iran, North Korea and the potential for a Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Sadly, I have a feeling that there is going to be a whole lot less “peace on Earth” by this time next year.

On top of everything else, the crust of our planet appears to be getting increasingly unstable and climate conditions are changing at a very rapid pace. Dozens of volcanoes are currently erupting, and one expert is warning that about 100 others could be on the brink of erupting.  Massive earthquakes have been striking along the Ring of Fire with increasing regularity, and major storms just keep getting larger and more intense.

We could keep going if you like. I haven’t even mentioned the potential for a global pandemic, the impending collapse of the European Union, civil unrest, terrorism, the death of our oceans or the horrible drought in the western half of the country.

Yes, people desperately need hope, but giving them false hope by telling them that everything is going to be just wonderful in 2019 is not a good thing.

Our world is in turmoil, and it is going to get even worse in 2019. So put on your seatbelts and get ready, because it is going to be a bumpy ride.

    This guy Michael Synder is the worst writer and biggest idiot out there. It amazes me that these sites keep putting his crap up. Yes things in this country are not and have not been great, but since 2008 maybe earlier, this guy has been writing the same garbage and none of it ever comes true. He is a religious fanatic and believes the book of revelations is taking place. Things are bad but the world is not ending. I used to comment on these guys articles on Prison Planet all the time, and funny enough Alex Jones’s crew used to censor me and remove my comments, karma is a bitch.

      Yep, they did me that way too… Disqus and many disqus using websites… Caved in to liberalism and marxism… Oh well. Its more telling than Snyders work… Sadly.

      I wonder where in the bible it use the word… “boofed”… WTF is that? Oh i know, more of that 2018-19 nonsensical lingo.. Surprised he doesnt write in emoticons too…

    • Fred says:

      Vinny, you are right. This idiot has said NOTHING that has not been going on for a LOOOONG time.

    • Sarcastic1 says:

      I know..I was about to write….”shocker…another prediction that everything pretty much ends this year!” Same as it has been written for about the past 10 years, if not longer. I’m convinced every writer keeps trying to top their peers so that if the worst DOES finally happen one year they can point to themselves and crow “SEE! I WAS RIGHT!”

      Just laughable. Especially all the bits about how Russia is just going to own the US military with all their magical seeming weapons that they’ve somehow developed and made work perfectly despite the fact that their entire economy is smaller than that of Texas.

      Oh and don’t forget the Chinese secret weapons and railguns. Rail guns the US military has been testing for years and has mounts for on many ships, along with laser beams that can take down drones…at least.

      Yep, the US is done! If you believe all you read.

      For me…yeah there are problems and there are possibilities for more problems. I’m not going to sweat all these less likely scenarios. What I’M worried about is the debt and it’s potential effect on the world economy as well!

  2. Wilson says:

    Michael,
    You’ve been talking this gloom and doom for so long, I wonder if you even know how to have a positive thought, let alone a positive outlook, So many of your predictions have been wrong. Maybe it’s time you found a new line of work. Or read a good book like, “The Power of Positive Thinking”.

    • John Stiner says:

      Anybody notice how the Hollywood movies have been pumping out the survival / doom movies lately?

      Thinks like Hunger Games, The Maze, Bird Box. There are a lot of them where the government or society has collapsed.

      I believe that is Hollywood reading their customers.

      Why do I say that? Remember in the 1980s when the Cold War was in full effect and there were LOTS of movies about nuclear war? Red Dawn, The Day After, etc. Hollywood was playing on people’s fear of nuclear war with Russia.

      Makes me think that a lot of people are survival minded and feel something bad is coming.

      • Heartless says:

        John, good thoughts. I’d noticed similarly to you. Seems the thrust is for some global break-down is the mantra/scheme for box-busters. How does the saying go? Is it ‘life imitates fiction’ or the other way around?

        • The Deplorable Renegade says:

          Heartless, you nailed it with that one. I’ve been watching some short survival/doom movies on youtube lately. But these only give you a FRACTION of an idea of what things will REALLY be like once the balloon goes up. One old movie that is a fair example is “The Road”. Now THAT was one scary movie.

      • Khemp says:

        The Road was a good book. I didn’t car for the film.

      • Maranatha says:

        Hollywood makes movies that hopefully resonnate with the viewers to seperate cash from their wallets.

        But the economic collapse really happened for the average American as their real wages versus inflation were cut in half since 1990. So they know all too well they are doomed.

        Bird Box is remarkaby stupid post-apocalyptic film and a moronic leftist idea of the apocalypse that contains all dumb white men and an alpha black male to win a pregnant mom’s heart and protect her.

        Since the blindfold is a theme for the film, the idiotic creators first asked viewers to try to stay blindfolded all day to see what that would be like, then realizing their stupidity, warned the dolts not to do it as it’s dangerous!

        Oh brother.

        • Rumplestiltskin says:

          Maranatha, Your right, but there ‘s another deeper occult agenda you should be aware of. You would be intrigued by the concept of “participatory magic”; the use of predictive programming and our God given creative abilities to participate in sorcery with the exploitation of our imagination and will to bring about the counterfeit millennial Kingdom.

          • Mark C says:

            Rumplestiltskin – A very perceptive post that probably fits with ‘casting pearls….”. Christian Rosencreutz would be proud of you.

            • Maranatha says:

              htt ps://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Rosenkreuz
              You mispelled it.

              Oh I not only understood stood participatory magick and Christiam Rosenkreuz, I condemn it and any practicer of the occult ie dark arts. I rebuke it in the name of Yeshua ha Mashiach.
              Exodus 22:18

        • Maranatha says:

          Now if you want to see a decent post-apocalyptic film with at least a modicum of realism The Survivalist (2017) or One Hundred Mornings (2009) are both watchable albeit depressing.

          In the former, a lone guy has managed to live but not without problems amd two strangers arrive asking for help. In the latter, two urban couples are staying at a well stocked cabin in a village but immediately have issues with the locals and the remaining law enforcement. Both are thought-provoking films to watch with a wife who is unconvinced about prepping.

        • Karl V. says:

          Similar “social message” themes were prominently displayed in the TV series ‘The Purge’. Virtually all of the strong / moral characters were female, with the addition of one token male –who (of course) represented an “ethnic minority” (Hispanic).

          There was one token “bad” female (white, of course) who was more confused / misled than actually evil. Other than her, I can’t recall a single malevolent character who was anything other than white and male.

          At first I was surprised that a show this violent would be aired on television; but I soon realized the reason: the blatant theme was: “Look at how terrible things can get if we continue to allow white men to have guns”.

          After four or five episodes, the patterns in the series had become unmistakable. Disgusted, I quit watching.

        • John Stiner says:

          I recommend Panic in the Year Zero (1962)

          It is about a family bugging out to survive a nuclear attack on the US.

          • Maranatha says:

            It’s a very good film given when it was filmed, and it also features some ideas like having multiple supply caches, being ready so avoiding an ambush while in a vehicle, realistic sociopathic-psychopathic behavior by survivor subsets, etc.

            Many years passed before another realistic post-apocalyptic film was made. Two years later you have Failsafe, then in 1970, you have Colossus: the Forbin Project. Brotherhood of the Bell was also made in 1970 but that’s the first film to discuss a shadowy cabal like the Illuminati.

  3. Menzoberranzan says:

    Go armed and take no shit from anyone, especially leftist scum.

    • John Stiner says:

      The lefties are eating themselves alive.

      The #meToo movement has taken down a LOT more democrats than anybody else.

      The best one was the New York Attorney General that vowed to take down Trump just to crash and burn in spectacular fashion.

      • The Deplorable Renegade says:

        JS, they sure are and I’m enjoying watching it. The FEMINAZI-RUN #MeToo movement is really devouring their own. I just love it when libturds turn on each other. I just sit back with the popcorn and laugh at their stupid asses. But if they ever target me they will have a serious problem on their hands.

  4. John Stiner says:

    Donald J. Trump’s presidency will not survive 2019

    I don’t know…. Trump will not go quietly into that good night.

    funny though, if you read all the anti Trump articles about how Trump is destroying the country… The first point in ALL the articles is that Trump is “not Presidential” with his twitter insults.

    I think that is funny because the Democrat party play book is to mock and insult…. and Trump is giving it back ten fold.

    Trump will not resign. Muller investigation will continue until 2020 election, that is the plan, then after Trump looses, suddenly they will conclude there was no collusion.

    • Anonymous says:

      Not going quietly does not going at all.

      If he’s going to stay in power he needs the support of the Republicans and they have never wanted him there in the first place. It was the Republicans that removed Nixon, the only President forced out of office over threat of impeachment and it was his own party that did it.

      • Khemp says:

        Nixon never cultivated Republicans as he should have. He was always more comfortable working with “Dixiecrats”.

      • Old Guy says:

        Nope all Trump needs to stay in Power is the support of the military. And he needs the troops home here on the US soil. They kill the grid for the citizens. The government & military will still have electric. then declare Martial law. And suspend elections. Use the troops to keep the masses in check. Roadblocks to restrict travel. No starving marauding hoards leaving the city to roam about creating mayhem in the rural areas. When the food runs out and no electricity most will die or willingly enter a FEMA camp to become a NWO slave. It will be a orderly controlled SHIF. I always think DTA Don’t Trust Anyone. I don’t trust President Trump even when he appears to be trying to keep his campaighn promises. He used to be big buddies with the Klintons. He is a schemer with his own agenda. That’s why Mattis was fired. Possibly there are Two Deep swamps? and both are working for the NWO? We certainly cant know what we don’t know. All I can do is prep for a grid down stone age existence. and if it don’t happen its just that much better. Trump will do as the Georgia Guidestones suggest. Remember heused to be a dimocrap

        • Genius says:

          OG, what is it you disagree with the guidestones? It is probably the only way the planet will survive another 500 years. As long as the tyrants don’t enslave the population it’s a great idea.

          • Deplorable 0 to 2 hour modding says:

            I agree. For so long I let my brain washing and programming override the common sense that the Guidestones provided and was offended by the notion that they were put out but when you step outside of the programming and brainwashing we’ve been accustomed to and you just stop and think about what it is the Guidestones say you find out that it’s very cold harsh logic and it makes perfect sense if you’re able to look at Humanity without the lens of the programming and the brainwashing. Additionally it is NOT aimed at any one group of people, it points the finger at all the multitudes of man, for all are guilty, but the true redeemables are those who recognize truth and aim to be it and become it. Humanity has no other choices as all directions save the one the guidestones directs are destined to fail and destroy the planet and all humanity as well. Dispassionate survivalism is the only deserving way to the future. There is no room for bleeding hearts and dumb ass. Practical focused survival is what is demanded. If you will not adapt, you will be permanently replaced. That is mother natures raw justice.

            • Maranatha says:

              The Georgia Guidstones are Luciferian, sadistic, and genocidal. The concepts are evil, elitist, and abomination.

              WHO DECIDES WHO LIVES some rich puke Satan worshiper?

              • Maranatha says:

                Anyone, and I mean anyone who supports the Georgia Guidestones is my enemy. Those rich elite globalists want to cull everyone except those willing to collaborate with the enslavement of humanity.

                May Yahweh have mercy on your soul.

                  They are just words, but you impart and assign INTENT behind them and then also surmise the means of their implementation ( I didnt read anything on them that indicated as to HOW or WHEN they would be implemented. SHOW ME where that is inscribed there, please.

                  Your filters are full on and working, I can assure you that. Quit reading with your biases in place and they are just LOGICAL WORDS.

                Mac don’t like me quoting verbatim the Guidestones, my comment is completely blocked and invisible but shows as duplicate comment if I try to repost it… Why is that Mac, Why is the unaltered text forbidden to be displayed in a comment when accurately quoted? What is it that is SO objectionable about it that I cannot post it to PROVE MY POINT that it is JUST WORDS, JUST COMMON SENSE CONCEPTS, and not racial nor religious (as is rampantly allowed to be quoted here)?

                Shall we blame Disqus again, shall we? the universal excuse? To prove it yet again, I will post it in quotes below.
                Text of the Georgia Guide stones (UNEDITED)
                Immediately below this is the outline of a square, inside which is written: “Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason” (Time Capsule Inscription)

                The text of the main stones:
                1) Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
                2) Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
                3) Unite humanity with a living new language.
                4) Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
                5) Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
                6) Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
                7) Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
                8) Balance personal rights with social duties.
                9) Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
                10) Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.”
                NOW PLEASE SHOWE ME LUCIFERIAN OR EVIL OR THE MEANS OF IMPLEMENTATION OR THE TARGET OF THEM?
                JUST SHOW ME WHY THESE ARE EVIL, please do. You rant and rave about them, but you rant and rave AGAINST LOGIC and common sense. Why does these words trigger you so badly or is it pure brainwashing causing you to react that way? I see sensible common sense there. A population restraint, LIKE IT ISNT NEEDED JUDGING BY HOW WE ACT AND CONSUME NOW? Really

              • Old Guy says:

                That’s easy. Yea though I walk thru the valley of Death I Fear no Evil. Because Im the biggest strongest meanest asshole killer in the valley. That’s who decides the Meanest most capable asshole killer.

                  Baloney. Every so called badass gets old and decrepit and dies. Then you meet your Maker and get judged. A puny human from one planet and one solar system in one galaxy among 100 billion galaxies versus OMNIPOTENCE.

                  No contest.

            • Old Guy says:

              Well I agree a great culling of parasites is needed. However we have this Countinuation of Government thing. They built bunkers Mt Weather and others to allow for the survival of the parasite so called Government Elete and their hand picked Minions. In the Aftertime they intend to emerge and rule & enslave those who by luck or fittest survived on their own. Those Places Like MT Weather need to be their toombs. I could embrace a Root Hawg or die Survival of the Fittest Stone age Lifestyle if Its free of government parasites & Holy Roller Bible Thumpers.

    • Justice says:

      John I agree that trump will not survive his first term. I too hope he gives as good as he gets, but no man can stand against “them”.

      I posted earlier, I believe that when they elected Trump, they were ready to bring it down because they had found their Patsy. They have spend the first 2 years of his Presidency demonizing him (it’s actually unbelievable how much they have attacked a sitting President). Consequently, when it all falls apart he (and the Deplorables) will be hated like no other. As I half joke, his end will be that of Mussolini!

      From here on out you guys can call me “The Chicken Man” because The Sky is Falling, The Sky is Falling….

      • The Deplorable Renegade says:

        Justice, I was a “deplorable” way before Trump ever threw his hat in the ring and I’ll be “deplorable” til’ my final dying breath. We’ve all been hated by the left for decades. It’s only been in more recent years that they admit to this hatred and what they want to do to our country. Civil War 2 is still coming and the left just doesn’t know what we have in store for them.

      • Rocky Mountain Ghost says:

        we all know when the shit will hut the fan sometime, when ? we don’t know all we can do is prep to our means. as far as the movies that are being produced, maybe we can use the as sort of learning videos lol, there will be a day that will come that we will have to survive on our own and by the old ways of the pioneers

    • Khemp says:

      All future campaigns will be as “dirty” as 2016. All future presidents will be persecuted by the opposition. This country will never be “united” again. We are entering a period of deep crap.

  5. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    So chicken little continues on into the new year. HO HUM back to sleep.

    • John Stiner says:

      I stopped watching Fox News because ALL they reported on was Trump / Russia / Muller. I am so sick of this bullshit.

    • The Deplorable Renegade, as I see it 2018 was a very good and productive year. Just depends on what you call good and productive ? How many serious criminals were exposed in our government for starters ? and now onto the action for those criminals. Just getting it all out there is always only the first step in such events and Americans are very slow to grasp what is real. So no surprise at all to me. Besides I had a great year in many other ways and see many good things approaching our society. Just realize what I am calling a good thing is other peoples greatest fears and nightmares !

      • The Deplorable Renegade says:

        DownToEarthThinking.com, in some ways 2018 was better. I’m hoping 2019 will be also but I’m not holding my breath on anything. Congress will become a REAL circus starting tomorrow when the commies take back the House, especially the new commies coming in. There’s also supposed to be a couple of Muslim scum coming in. Going to be “interesting”.

        • The Deplorable Renegade, those supposed new forces are precisely what will empower Trump even more than he already is. Need proof ?

          Just look at how every rally for DJT draws overflow crowds ? What many here cannot seem to grasp is that PRAVDA/MSM is all that keeps the real criminals in power and working against the only good force out there in USA today ! Most here give up far too easily and if they do not see nearly immediate gratification on matters like the Mueller sham they roll over and simply give up. Most cannot grasp it took decades to get to this depth of corruption that is now exposed. And in only less than 2 years a tremendous amount has been exposed and accomplished. All of it only proves one thing so far ? Our government is simply a giant criminal enterprise and vastly corrupted. This had to happen this way ! That is NO reason to give up and start attacking the people that are in fact exposing it all ! That is beyond ignorant as some here are proving themselves to be ! Basically attacking the messenger because there had been no prosecutions yet, because the corrupted system is stopping those same prosecutions ? It is NOT the fault of any involved with DJT, exactly the opposite.

          Most here have such short and narrow memories or intellectual capacity they have already forgotten Sessions helped cause all that we see today, so there could not be any prosecutions until he was gone. So it is a very simple matter on some levels like the Sessions connection and very complex in other perspectives like the creation of the fake crimes by DOJ/FBI. So many just cave in for a lack of intelligence and cannot comprehend most of it because in fact they go along with the PRAVDA/MSM bullshit stories and incapable to think for themselves in any deeper capacity to comprehend it all as it really exists.

          Bottom line is simple, most cannot accept the massive corruption and what it is as reality, so they are more than willing to give up and kill the messenger ! Realize it ain’t over till the fat lady dances and Trump is going nowhere and those that roll over and give up are in fact helping the DEM/DSA in their criminality out of total ignorance and cowardice !

          Here are the ultimate answers to all of it and why it is not going to go away any time soon. In fact that battle has only just begun ! Realize the DEM/DSA has already played all their cards and the maniacs we see in their party are committing their own suicide daily in a multitude of ways !

          https://bongino.com/ep-886-the-scandal-exposed/

          also the links he refers too are critical info

          Some here are even more critical of FOX than I am. But realize if not for Hannity and his crew and a few others like Bongino, none of this would have been exposed ! That is just a fact. Do with it what any of you please. And I fully realize for many here that will be zero ! I have known this and spoken it many times on many matters and have been spot on correct. Americans are very slow thinkers and even slower to take any actions at all ! I understand exactly why this phenom exists, so avoid it easily.

    “faith in the system is at an all-time low.”
    That is because we have too many Democrats

      You’re producing tax revenue. Also known as shooting yourself in the foot. So am I, sadly.

      Might be time to seriously start looking at expatriating. Not because of any major calamity or threat, but because this place doesn’t want us anymore. It just wants our tax revenue. And it will eventually start beating us over the head with our own money. Right now it just denys us everything using our own money.

        Leaving the country was a popular idea by some retirees and preppers in 1990 as the Free Trade debacle started hitting home. The problem though is contingent upon still receiving pensions and social security and so honestly isn’t a great idea.

        The least expensive but relatively safe place to go is Ecuador. It used to be Costa Rica. The former is cheaper but less stable. The latter is very stable.

        If the SHTF, do you really want to be outside the USA and speak another language, and will you have any income streams too?

          ht tps://www.newsweek.com/ranked-americas-most-and-least-expensive-states-live-1193291

          Kentucky is ranked the 5th least expensive state but considering the other four, I think we more than make up for other inevitable issues like ethnic tension.

          Many of you could sell your property, buy a comparable property here in western KY, and invest the profit and actually live better.

          • Justice says:

            Maranatha, Kentucky is my fall back position/bug-out location and I could end up moving there at any moment.

            Typically property around the Washington Metropolitan Area is the last effected by a down-turn. So, I am looking to catch that small window where my property still maintains it’s value and saleability (because of jobs) and buy down there.

            If you see a guy standing on the side of the road with a sign that reads “Will Sue For Food” it might be me after my supplies run out.

              Every conserative prepper who elects to relocate to Kentucky, makes Kentucky stronger. Good for you.

              If you ever want some scoop on some rural town, don’t hesitate to ask.

              Eastern KY may seem cheaper but some areas are not welcoming to strangers, but if you win them over, they are very loyal. Western KY is far easier and better in my opinion.

Where resources are, will come crowds of free loaders to come challenge and take them… You cannot throw open borders with an invite and NOT have a disaster just like americas immigration problem. But you didnt think of that, you failed again to see logic because of filters you see through to get a desired result. Good intentions are fatal when you willfully ignore human nature. So who is going to filter the wanted and desired population immigration into kentucky for you? Again, you cannot see outside your self imposed blinders nor do you understand human psychology.

        • Maranatha, if an actual SHTF event was to occur there would be zero income streams for anybody including TPTB. Ponder that as it has many complications and realities embedded.

          • Maranatha says:

            Yeah meaning you would be a fool to leave America.

            The rich have no wealth as wealth is just an abstract idea unless you own land.

            No one owns land unless you can defend it. That is the basic rule of life. See any tribe throughout history who ever lost their land. Any invader, given enough time and will power, will take it or die trying.

            All those precious metals, petroleum, paper currencies, electronic cash, Bitcoin, it’s all nonsense. Philosophically, there is no wealth but land.

            And the only reason for land is to take water and food and tools and supplies from it.

            • Maranatha says:

              People bellyache about the Native Americans but they were NOT indigenous but crossed the Berring Strait. They took America from whoever was here before. Other Native Americans fought other Native American tribes.

              The same is true everywhere like Ireland and England. You have I digenous tribes fighting each other and then Vikings from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland and even elsewhere in loose bands invade and mostly raid. Then get some land, then lose it, then gain it, then lose it.

              Then the Normans invade and even use some Vikings. France gets invaded by everyone around them, then likewise do the invading in the Holy Lands.

              The Spanish invade everywhere then largely lose it all.

              Nobody owns lands without a fight.

              Everything else as wealth is an illusion based on eye appeallike pretty shells as wampum or gold or bolts of cloth or jewels or monopoly currency.

    6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.

    The article says, ‘Faith in the system is at an all time low.’ True enough…lets ask, why? Things that used to be stable in our system have been politicized to the point where it is tribe against tribe and party against party and rule of law and principled judgement is not even on life support.
    Politicians have divided us increasingly on party terms and also by whose voice gets heard and responded to. The media has been a bit on the biased side; can we get back to, ‘just the facts, sir’? Expose the truth…but then it becomes a battle for whose truth is this anyway? The integrity and credibility of our institutions have been severely eroded. It is the job of our elected leaders /politicians to keep to the high road for just that reason: to keep the confidence high in our system. When you can run rough shod over the principles of fair play and objective good process decision making, trouble is ahead.

    There is NO Russia collusion with Pres. DT, and everyone knows it. Nevertheless, his political enemies will continue to grind him down trying to find some reason to impeach him. If they can’t impeach him, they will try to damage his presidency and his agenda, therefore working against the will of the people. Trump’s enemies are not merely the liberal politicians, it is really the deep state, the liberals are merely minions of their deep state masters. Furthermore, officialdom has shown they have nothing but contempt for the citizens who voted for Trump; Hillary called us deplorables, they despise us. For the liberals to try and negate the results of a presidential election, especial on bogus grounds, shows their hubris and and indifference to all Americans, their will is all that matters, not the will of the Amer. people.
    They’re all hell-bent in turning the US into something the majority of us don’t want. This is what the Border Wall issue actually is all about; the most over-arching and primary goal of the TPTB / deep state / officialdom is to change the demographics and culture of the US. They want to flood the US with immigration (legal or illegal, it doesn’t matter, and preferably from 3rd world countries). First, they want to guarantee massive new numbers of Democratic voters, to help achieve their second but more important goal, which is to end white majority and marginalize Christian culture because most of us cannot be sufficiently influenced to mindlessly support the deep state agenda. By overwhelming the present population with a diverse and culturally incompatible population, society will fracture to the point where there can never been any challenge to gov’t and officialdom. It’s divide and conquer. Then we will see an unstoppable erosion of our Constitutional rights; the “elites” will rule with unassailable power. Diversity and incompatibility are the opposite of unity and social cohesion. Officialdom uses Orwellian terms like “diversity is our strength”. If that is true, then unity must be our weakness. But we now have a generation who believes all this nonsense because they were dumbed-down and propagandized in the generally lousy public American education system, and many can no longer think critically.
    In a generation or two life will be completely different than the America I grew up in unless there is a reawakening, politically, culturally, morally, and religiously. I am a Southerner, as a youngster I enjoyed incredible freedom and safety in a way most Americans cannot imagine today. But I also had very close family, church, and community ties that have been completely lost in many parts of America. Common social values and common decency were simply non-negotiable. All these are marked for destruction so that the state may have predominant influence and control over each and every person. Individualism and independent thought is to be inculcated out of every citizen. Rather, they want everyone to be unattached and rootless with no independent identity. They only common denominator TPTB wants for society is that all have the same big brother – the state.
    However, there is a coming wrench in the schemes of TPTB. They are planning an economic/financial crisis as means to help bring about their agenda. The center will not hold, it will ultimately fail. In the long-term, crisis does not weaken people, it strengthens them. People will learn new-found unity and identity in family, community, and even faith; and local populism will prevail. The state / officialdom, though they might try, will not be able exercise the power and control they are accustomed to, the cost and need for resources to do so will be unsustainable. Little to no popular support for big gov’t will compound any effort to maintain concentrated power. I recommend preparing for this coming event.
