Radical Leftists Are Warning That The Trump Years Will Be ‘Apocalyptic’ – And They Just Might Be Right

Do you LOVE America?


    This article was written by Michael Snyder and originally published at the End Of The American Dream.


    Is the United States about to plunge into an apocalyptic nightmare from which it may never recover? During the Obama era conservatives often warned of such scenarios, but now things have completely shifted. At the moment, conservatives are generally more optimistic than they have been in many years, but quite a few liberals are warning that the Trump years could have absolutely disastrous consequences for this country. They are concerned that Trump’s policies could burst the giant debt bubble that we have been living in and trigger economic collapse, they are concerned that widespread civil unrest could soon erupt in our cities, they are concerned that our rapidly deteriorating environment and major natural disasters could soon kill millions, and they are also concerned that faltering relationships with other nations could lead us into World War III.

    Of course leftists are generally wrong about just about everything, but in this case they might be exactly correct.

    The truth is that our world is becoming increasingly unstable with each passing week, and this time around it is conservatives that are guilty of reckless optimism.

    Just because Donald Trump has been elected does not mean that everything around us is going to be transformed into some sort of utopia. Anyone that is guilty of this kind of thinking is simply delusional.

    So as much as it pains me to say it, these days it is often liberals that have a more accurate assessment of what the times immediately ahead of us are going to be like. And while many conservatives have totally given up on preparing for the difficult times that are coming, many liberals have suddenly become extraordinarily interested in emergency food, water filters and guns. They are extremely concerned about what America is going to look like in a few years, and the mainstream media is starting to do stories about their rising anxiety. The following is an excerpt from a Christian Science Monitor article entitled “In age of Trump, apocalyptic rhetoric becomes mainstream“…

    The longer President Trump is in office, the more Cat Deakins worries about the future – for herself and her children.

    With every executive order and cabinet appointment, she envisions another scenario: an America that rejects immigrants, that succumbs to climate change, that erupts in war.

    “It’s scary to me that [people within the administration] are promoting this idea of, ‘We are at war with Islam.’ That’s the kind of thinking that leads to World War III,” says Ms. Deakins, a cinematographer in Los Angeles. “I don’t think we can be alarmed enough.”

    To many conservatives that may sound like nonsense, but the truth is that we are on a road that could potentially lead us to World War III. Anti-Russian hysteria has reached a fever pitch in Washington, and our relationship with China is the worst that it has been in decades. Of course the Middle East continues to be a tinderbox, and one false move could cause a major war to erupt in the region.

    Meanwhile, the ground under our feet continues to shake with increasing regularity. In fact, an enormous magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck along the “Ring of Fire” just this weekend

    A HUGE earthquake measuring 6.9 magnitude struck off the coast of New Britain island in Papua New Guinea this morning, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said.

    The quake was so powerful that it was felt as far away as the capital Port Moresby, 750 km (460 miles) away on the country’s south coast.

    Papua New Guinea is on the Pacific “Ring of Fire” which has frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

    And our environment continues to deteriorate all around us as well. According to one recent study, half of the species on our entire planet could be facing extinction by the end of this century unless something is done…

    One in five species on Earth now faces extinction, and that will rise to 50% by the end of the century unless urgent action is taken. That is the stark view of the world’s leading biologists, ecologists and economists who will gather on Monday to determine the social and economic changes needed to save the planet’s biosphere.

    “The living fabric of the world is slipping through our fingers without our showing much sign of caring,” say the organisers of the Biological Extinction conference held at the Vatican this week.

    But of more immediate concern is our very serious economic problems. For much more on this, please see the article that I published on Sunday entitled “Retail Apocalypse Gains Momentum As David Stockman Warns ‘Everything Will Grind To A Halt’ After March 15th“.

    We have already seen very angry protests and riots from coast to coast during the first month of Trump’s presidency, and it wouldn’t take much to push the millions upon millions of Americans that completely hate Trump entirely over the edge. If we do see a severe economic downturn or a major natural disaster (remember Katrina?) or the U.S. enters a new war, any of those things could potentially be enough to spark widespread civil unrest in cities all over America.

    A lot of people can see what is coming, and many wealthy elitsts are securing adequate accommodations to ride out the “Trumpocalypse” while they still can. For example, a former nuclear missile silo in Kansas has been transformed into a series of luxury survival condos

    The door to the Survival Condo closes slowly, sending a resounding thud through the concrete parking garage.

    Those inside have surrounded themselves with walls up to 9 feet thick, ready to withstand a nuclear explosion, the eruption of Yellowstone’s supervolcano or an outbreak of avian flu.

    Larry Hall, project manager and owner of the Luxury Survival Condo Project, says he feels safer with the doors closed.

    He says he’s sold all 12 luxury condos in the former Atlas missile silo — which once housed a nuclear warhead — not far from Concordia, about two hours north of Wichita. He’s working on a second silo.

    The condos are all sold out at this point, but the vast majority of us could have never afforded one anyway. According to the article quoted above, an 1,820 square foot unit costs three million dollars.


    In the end, the truth is that America was headed for disaster whether Trump or Clinton won the election. And actually, many of the apocalyptic scenarios that I lay out in my novel are much more likely to happen with a Republican in the White House. For instance, radical leftists are far more likely to go wild in the streets if someone that they hate with all of their might is leading the nation.

    And instead of trying to bring peace, the top Democrats in Washington are now calling for “total war” against Donald Trump. The following comes from the Daily Caller

    Democrat Party leaders are planning to agree on a strategy of all-out war against President Donald Trump at meetings this weekend, rather than work to achieve their policy goals through compromise.

    Following the election that devastated the party’s power at every level of government, some in the party were considering a strategy of working with the Trump administration to get things done. Indeed, Trump has signaled he would be willing to cross the aisle to achieve some less-than-conservative policy changes he has taken up. But senior party officials told The New York Times that option is likely off the table, and those inside the party who favor an aggressively confrontational strategy will win out.

    The left is not just going to lay down and die just because Donald Trump won the election.

    They are absolutely determined to fight Trump every step of the way, even if that means causing more division in a nation that is more deeply divided than it has been in decades.

    I know that there is a lot of optimism out there among conservatives right now, but the truth is that the elements for a “perfect storm” are coming together very rapidly, and it is very easy to see how all of this could end very, very badly.

    So when liberals say that the coming years could be “apocalyptic”, they may not actually understand what they are talking about, but they might end up being precisely correct.

      1. OT

        re the caulk up at the Oscars:

        Scratching my chin whiskers, the first thought was affirmative action may be involved.

        Price-Waterhouse Coopers has accepted full responsibility.

        “. . .PwC’s representatives were Brian Cullinan, a partner at the firm — and, according to his bio on the company’s website, a Matt Damon lookalike — and Martha Ruiz, the second woman to serve as a PwC Oscars tabulator.

        Cullinan is the lead partner for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, including the annual balloting for the Oscars ceremony. He has been part of the balloting team since 2014.

        Ruiz, a 19-year veteran at PwC who specializes in providing tax compliance and advisory services to entertainment clients in southern California, joined Cullinan as the Oscars balloting co-leader in 2015.

        In a promotional video on the company’s website ahead of Sunday’s show, Cullinan said he and Ruiz are the only two who knew who the winners were on the night of the awards.

        “There are 24 categories. We have the winners in sealed envelopes that we hold and maintain throughout the evening and hand those to the presenters before they walk out on stage,” he said.

        According to Mike Davies, PwC’s director of global communications, both Cullinan and Ruiz would have had a briefcase on either side of the auditorium to hand out the envelope for the category to be announced. Each briefcase would have had one envelope of each category winner.

        In his remarks before the show, Cullinan had said PwC’s relationship with the Academy Awards is testament to the firm’s reputation in the market for being “a firm of integrity, of accuracy and confidentiality and all of those things that are really key to the role we have with the Academy in counting these ballots.”


          • ““It’s scary to me that [people within the administration] are promoting this idea of, ‘We are at war with Islam.”

            LMAO !!! Snowflake stupidity for all to see. 🙂

            Islam is at war with US(A). And everyone else who will not submit to its ideology. Those in the Administration (and out of it) who utter those words, RECOGNIZE that Islam is at war with US.

            Islam is not a religion of peace. Islam is INCOMPATIBLE with American Constitutional Values. Anyone; any individual, group or organization that does not espouse the Rule of Law as presented by the US Constitution is an enemy of the State.

            It is astounding that sooo many liberals support an ideology that hates everything they stand for, like: homosexuality, transgenders, and rights for women, to name a few.

            Muslims do not want to peaceably co-exist with anyone. They do not want to assimilate into the American Society. They want to REPLACE our society, our culture, with their own.

            Better to destroy our enemies, whether foreign or domestic, NOW, while we have the power to do so. Appeasement never works. It only encourages more aggression.

            Death to TRAITORS !!! Treason is a capitol crime. !!! Turn the Middle East into a sea of glass and 3/4 of the world’s problems would disappear. 🙂

      2. Please quit using the words “Radical Leftists” when you mean “Dofus/Idiots” a good honest to God leftist is a problem. These puppy hugers aren’t a wart on the AXX of a good leftist.

        • I went to school in the 60S&70S with a bunch of these types. You have a problem with them, just suggest that they look down the barrel of the gun the first time they shoot it to make sure it;s working; half of them will: The other half will need more explanation.

          • Everything is pretty peaceful in my area of FL. There was a Pro-Trump rally in town last weekend. Birds are still chirping, the sun is shining, 80+ degs today, life is good. The outdoor bars on the water were packed this last weekend thousands of Pro Trump Bikers listening to some rock and blues bands, beer was flowing, good times. Why do you live, in Libby Land, where there is chaos Mr Snyder?? Maybe move and you will change your tune as to what real life is about. Lots of big Strawberry festivals in the state this month, and the babes will be out in force looking good. Spring Break kicking in and tourists will be packing the beaches. Saw a funny T-shirt this weekend. It said, Why do your Big Boobs keep looking at my eyes.

        • SNYDER again? Ho hum. I’m going back to sleep.

          • I am much more optimistic since Trump was re-elected. My CQB M14 was running 3-4 MOA with 2 flyers in a 10 round group at 100 yards. Now that Trumps elected with new mods to M14 I’m optimistic I can get rid of the flyers and stay under 3 MOA…

        • Note to libturds; you come to f#$% with me, you’ll face YOUR OWN apocalypse.

          • Some Great News: The Swamp is Draining.

            Trump Slashes Nat’l Debt by $12 Billion In First Month, Media Silent
            02-27-2017 • http://www.trueactivist.com
            The Trump administration managed to decrease total US public debt by $12 billion in a month, while former President Obama increased it by $200 billion over that same period.

          • The Deplorable Braveheart,
            stop and think about a full revolution from the radical left, they are stupid idots for the most part and would be mostly cannon fodder, so with that said dead leftists can’t breed!! might not be a bad thing to lower there population size!! LOL

            • Apache54, careful what you wish for, LOL! It’s coming to that. A helluva lot of them will get killed just by their own stupidity.

      3. Is this going to be like the 2012 Apocalypse or the global warming Apocalypse or more like a Y2K Apocalypse?

      4. Good, if that is what it takes. I hate long waits, better to get this shhhiiittt over with while I am still healthy enough to deal with it.

      5. It wont be because of Trump, but it will be because the NEW WORLD ORDER who owns the banking system will implement the end game. Trump will not be able to stop it, and this is common sense. His entire white house staff is sabotaging all his efforts. Now Bannon is under hot water trying to stop Robert Steele form contacting Trump. It appears that Bannon and Preibus are up to something. See my previous post to get to listen to that link. So much bullshit is going on Mac cant even post fast enough before more shit surfaces.


      6. “I know that there is a lot of optimism out there among conservatives right now”.
        I’m pretty much a glass is half empty sort of guy. I’m not
        at all optimistic. As long as we have Democrats, GOPe, and Moslem’s amongst us, our country is in great danger.
        I continue to prep and invest in my land, I encourage you to do the same.

        • rellik

          I’m with ya regarding optimism but I see those you mentioned as symptoms. Its the people in control, the globalist banksters who own the media, control the supply and net value of money, bribe politicians and have brave Americans fight their wars for ostensible reasons who are the root cause problem.

      7. Keep buying your beans, bullets, and band-aids folks! It’s about to get real interesting.

      8. guess every BS cause needs a scape goat

        • Isnt it funny how the lefts cant see all the other things that lead up to where we are now?
          but no..its the guy in there right now that F’ed everything up eh?

          yeah like Trump had anything to do with the Bush years, Clinton, Obama etc..et all

          going back to way before the dam 60’s

        • Jill Stein is looking to move over to the Dem Party and Run for Pres. Then Al Frankin is looking to run for Pres.
          Rumors has it these 2 will team up together as running mates as Frankin-Stein. (jk)

      9. Mother Nature can be a bitch when she wants to, and no matter who is in the White House. Now as far as TPTB. Those sicko’s will try anything to stay in power.

        If it comes, all we can do is Pray & Prep!!! I know I have said it before, but you can’t say it enough.


      10. Is Snyder still guesting on the Jim Bakker show? I heard he had signed up for about three weeks in Branson.

        • Snyder is a washed up lawyer beaddy eyed snake self promoting BSr. Snakewater for the gullible. Leftys are PO’d cause all the freeshit for nothing program is over. Let them whine then push them into their graves. Buh bye!

      11. The 4 previous administrations brought us to where we are now. Trump has to do some
        damage control like no other president in history. He is handcuffed with an insane amount
        of national debt. Not his fault but he has to deal with it. The central banks are pressing for
        war everywhere you look. Iran. North Korea. South China Sea. Syria. Ukraine. It’s enough
        to make your head spin. So we are teetering not only from bankruptcy but the possibility
        of WW3. How we make it thru the next few years is mind boggling. Clinton let North Korea
        acquire nukes. Obama let Iran acquire nukes. Bush Sr. could have prevented the 2nd Iraq
        War if he didn’t stop the first one so early. These were not decisive presidents. And now
        we will pay for all of their blunders. Call it Trumpocalypse if you want, it’s not his fault.

        • then why does he want other countries to aquire nukes also.

          • ??????? Explain.

        • Well said.

      12. a lot of snowflakes will go down and other undesirables.

      13. The left isn’t prepping for natural disaster or any such thing. They are prepping in order to have the means to get rid of their fellow citizens when they seize power.

      14. Who got to you?? Just like Roberts in the court, no principles or guts but the money is probably good.

        Sorry to hear you died.

      15. The few “radical leftists” (including myself) that I know are in complete agreement with much of Trump’s agenda – particularly his efforts to bring down the national security state. We sympathize with the scope of the economic shit sandwich that he got served on taking office, and we agree that the whole “Russia is the enemy” hysteria is just the media’s way of diverting attention from the fact that the banksters continue to enrich themselves while knowing full well that the house of cards will come down soon. (It’s also the way that the idiots who supported Hillary tell themselves that they actually deserved to win the presidency.)

        To be honest, I’m not really sure what divides the “radical left” (as you guys call it) from the alt-right other than that the latter tends to include a lot of racist and antisemitic rhetoric. But on the basic structural issues it seems to me we’re pretty much on the same page. Might be time to work on that alliance.

        • Good to hear. Anyone from the “left” who would be willing to see Trump take our country back for the American people is welcome at the front-lines, as far as I’m concerned. This is all about our country being *our* country, our constitution and bill of rights being defended, and our laws enforced instead of undermined. This apocalyptic BS is something I’ve been watching as it is manufactured by the folks who have been trying to take Trump down from the beginning. Wait ’till the establishment Right figures out that it can’t co-opt Trump (a matter for prayer)–we’d better recognize our common ground and not fall into the Repubs VS Dems pack/sports-team mentality. What the author of this article doesn’t realize is that it’s only the shadow being projected on the wall that looks so big–that shadow consists of ignorant people willing to believe/go along with it–the substance that needs to be dealt with is relatively confined.

      16. I told a friend of mine who said he was voting for Johnson ” Our Country can recover from a nuclear war that Trump might get us in but this Country can’t recover from a Supreme Court stacked by Hillary.

      17. and they are also concerned that faltering relationships with other nations could lead us into World War III.

        … much unlike Hillary, who was visibly drooling at the prospect of nuking Russia…

        If you guys gave that much of a shit, why didn’t you float a viable candidate?

      18. The leftists, otherwise known as Commies, are no concerned, they are very much engaged in creating an apocalyptic senario, filled with economic hardship and war. That’s how the money pours in.

        As far as earthquakes, as I’ve said before, it’s the result of solar activity because we are at the point in the solar cycle that results in a change that occurs every eleven years. When it’s past, the weather settles down. As long as we don’t get hit with something unusual from the sun, we’ll be fine.

        If we get rid of the Banksters by some type of brilliant move, there won’t be economic hardships any more. The Banksters steal our money and kill our children in unnecessary wars.

        End the Fed


      19. Well, based upon this article we all might as well just give up and do whatever we want and not worry about anything or anyone anymore because no matter what we do we are all screwed! I’m okay with promoting facts, but not with promoting opinions of doom, gloom, chaos and general agitation of readers. Also “articles” such as this should offer solutions, not just problems. Unfortunately many articles on shtfplan now serve the merchants of chaos more than they serve true conservative, patriotic Americans.

        • Yep a lot of these sites are sellouts to which ever crowd they can dupe into clicking the adds. One shitsandwich after another like chum to the fish. I aint buying squat. These writers hate America. Its every man for himself. Been that way for decades. I got mine.

      20. Look out, here comes the dancing magic unicorns, with their Glitter Barbey Megaphones, singing:

        “This is the dawning of the age of Bullshit. The age of Bullshit. Bulllllel Shhhhhhit.”

      21. I’ve now seen up close and personal these liberals in action. Went to visit my brother and everything was going along okay. I was getting ready to leave when he said wait I’d like to ask you about what you think about such and such…….I honestly now cannot tell you what the question was, it was all so tumultuous. When he ask me the question, it was political and I told him that I did not want to go there. We had had political discussions before, but over the phone and he would get loud and get mad because he could not convince me to agree with him about Trump and others. As the discussion went on he became more and more belligerent and yelling so much that I thought he was going to have a heart attack. I reminded him again that I had told him I did not want to go there. These liberals will not let you speak, and do not want to here your view, They get so mad that you will not agree with them. They try to force their view on you. He went to the front door opened it and screamed “GET OUT”. Then he slammed the door so hard I thought it would break. Really I could not believe what I was hearing and seeing. He blamed every shooting that has taken place on Trump, all hateful speech on Trump, you name it ,it was Trump’s fault. These liberals are possessed. He’s not prepping though. I couldn’t help myself though, I laughed all the way home that someone could get this worked up because you would not agree with them.

        • Sounds like someone in desperate need to justify his beliefs/actions.

      22. The article said; “Just because Donald Trump has been elected does not mean that everything around us is going to be transformed into some sort of utopia. Anyone that is guilty of this kind of thinking is simply delusional”.

        Under Trump I don’t expect utopia, I’m merely hoping America remains a free constitutional republic, and that Trump manages to set the globalists back a decade or two.

        I’d like to think we won’t be dragged off to FEMA camps for the next 8 to 12 years. I hope Trump has a solid 4 years, and then perhaps hands off the White House to Mike Pence for anothe 8.

        • Do you really think America is still a free constitutional republic? I sure don’t. It seems to me we’re completely owned by the rich, and that they’ve turned us into an empire.

          • Under Obama we saw selective law enforcement, and judicial activism was encouraged. The government selectively applied regulations and used government agencies to attack their perceived political enemies, while ignoring blatant criminal activities of their cronies.

            One of Obama’s legacies was a lesson in how fragile our nation is and how easily it can be destroyed.

      23. “Socialism is the doctrine that

        – Ayn Rand, “For the New Intellectual”

        This is what we need to fight against don’t let socialism win!

      24. the left is the biggest terrorist group in existence. they are a bigger threat than isis, illegals refugees

      25. It is very hard to get it through my thick head why President Trump can’t put a stop to all this BS the commies are putting out.He seems to have the military on his side,lots of generals,and the police also.I’m an old retired Navy combat vet and still believe in fighting fire with fire.I’m not too smart in the way the suits in DC think but I do know how us old vets think.President Trump is the Commander In Chief of our fighting men,so let them fight and command them like he should.Use our elite operators, Navy Seals,Army Rangers,Recons,and even the Coasties have an elite bunch to take out these commie leaders I won’t name, but every one knows who they are.Come to think of it,the Coast Guard is under HLS so they wouldn’t have to worry about the Posse Comitatus BS.They could use the NDAA and pick up the leaders of the riots and take them to some God forsaken prison for a while, then show the others videos of what could happen to them if they don’t stop.I know this will never come about but this is mostly the subject of conversation when us old vets get together.

      26. Jeez…this is the worst dose of fear porn I have seen here in a long time. Could there be civil unrest…yep. It could be stopped pretty quick if we shoot a few rioters instead of letting them destroy stuff.

        Earthquake…could happen any minute. WW3 I don’t think many really want that. Radical Islam yep its out there, but the ballless politicians in Europe at too afraid to fix it by just sending them all back to the ME.

        Will we have that Muslim shit here, probably but once Americans get full up of their shit and we decide to end it, it just might be solved.

        Hell we could get hit by a giant piece of rock from space that nobody has ever seen that wipes us out…

        Stuff is going to happen both good and bad, but I wont stop living and crawl in a hole because Snyder is talking the same game as usual.

      27. The writer of this article makes his living by writing scarey articles, Been reading them on and off for few years now, always predicting apocalypse, one day maybe he will be right

      28. Snyder prays every night for total chaos. Doesn’t matter who’s leading the country. Makes his living on fear porn.

      29. Pure Baloney ! The Lord helped in putting Mr. Trump into office. Wait and see !
