2022 Predictions

Anticipating events to come in the year ahead doesn't involve reading tea leaves or being clairvoyant. It merely requires studying real history, studying real current events (not fake news) and using common sense to make application of the natural progression of things.

The problem is that so many people don't look ahead any further than the end of their noses. Couple that with the fact that most are trapped by conventional wisdom and normalcy bias and steeped in establishment propaganda and you have masses of people who are little more than walking zombies reacting to sights and sounds around them with little thought to long-term consequences.

It's small wonder that most people live paycheck to paycheck. Many were producers and savers, or should aspire to be such, but have been reduced to the crumbs of minimum wage by government regulations, dollar devaluation and socialist claptrap. Yet many also stay either lost in a fog of pop culture or agitated beyond reason by the divisive politics that are fed to us through the mainstream media. They don't know how to look beyond the noise.

My mother used to say that the Lord takes care of drunks and fools. Well, that worked in her day, but it's more complicated now. We have the unprecedented problem of ignorance and mass deception, coupled with poverty and mass malnutrition. These are real problems and they are getting worse.

Exceptions are you, the loyal reader, and may God bless you in this coming year. But also remember that God helps he who helps himself!

Any prudent and wise person who is watching events in the U.S. would know that we are witnessing the last gasp of the elites in their desperate attempt to preserve the present system which is collapsing. The end can't be far away.

There will be no changes to stop the movement of events. Things happen as they are meant to happen. The American people are asleep. All politicians are just kicking the can down the road hoping that they can milk the system a while longer. The fat pensions that they hope for and expect will evaporate with paper money. They are numb to reality.

There is potentially great danger and great hardship ahead. All the government can do is print more money and keep promising everybody everything.

The elite who run the show want to get everything they can out of the system before it collapses. They rely on the fact that not one American in a million suspects that they are gradually becoming impoverished by depreciation of the currency. Depreciation of the currency is warfare by the government against the people. Only a handful of Americans realize what is happening. I feel that you who read these Alerts are aware and concerned and are and have been preparing for survival.

Evidence of the collapse of America is everywhere for those who have eyes to see.

Here's what I anticipate in 2022 and beyond:

  • Democrats have signaled they are all in on removing guns from the American people, and the Biden administration is willing to issue as many illegal executive orders and use emergency proclamations and "regulations" from the Department of Health to get their way. They are already doing this with "red flag"-type bills and amendments to remove weapons from "dangerous people" and eventually a true bill will pass Congress and be signed by the president. Under "red flag" laws, anyone can report to authorities that a person is potentially dangerous and law enforcement can confiscate his weapons. This is a blatant violation of due process, but the Constitution is meaningless in this day and age. There will also be moves — some successful, some not — to require insurance to own firearms, register to purchase ammo, etc. Economic gun control will continue with banksters and credit card companies squeezing gun and ammo manufacturers and sellers and big tech shutting down any information on weapons-related products. Americans will, by and large, capitulate. There has never been a more dangerous time to your liberties than now.
  • Big Tech will continue to stifle free speech. Conservative ideas will continue to be classified as "wrong-think" and shadow-banned if not banned outright. This is already underway.
  • Stagflation coming. It's already begun. Inflation is out of control, since it's the natural offshoot of money printing and artificially low interest rates. But inflation by itself is not so painful if your income is keeping pace. For most American workers and producers, it's not. That's what stagflation is all about — rising prices and stagnant wages. Biden will have to wear it as the market crashes. Another bursting housing bubble and bursting auto loan bubble will usher in another period of high inflation, high interest rates, rising unemployment and stagnant economy. Signals are flashing "Red Alert," and the Fed is fomenting it, as our colleague Brandon Smith has told you repeatedly.
  • Gold and silver will break out again. As Notes From Underground pointed out recently, "The gold/currency spreads … have been a market response to the looming credibility gap of all central banks in a fiat currency world ... The move to buy the precious metals in the face of rising short-term interest rates is a response to concerns that the central banks have no answers to the trap of forward guidance and its mantra of lower for longer." My friend, there is no precedent for the current supply/demand imbalance in precious metals and even industrial metals. This is an investor's dream, and a saver's, too, where supply inelasticity meets rising demand. I hope that all of you can profit from this, but also, keep some gold as a store of value.
  • Congress will pass some sort of vaccine mandate, which will be ruled unconstitutional by a federal court but will remain in place until the Supreme Court hears the case. It will just be another collectivist scheme that denies you health freedom.
  • The gay/trans cult will continue their drive to abject absurdity, and religious and economic liberty will continue to suffer because of it. Transgenderism is a mental disorder treated as science by the leftist social Marxists. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, about 0.6 percent (1.4 million) U.S. adults identify as transgender or "gender nonconforming." But by the way it dominates society, including gay and trans characters in nearly every TV show and advertisement you see, one would think there are 100.4 million transgenders rather than only 1.4 million.
  • War on the horizon. Biden pulled our troops out of Afghanistan. But globalists still want war with Iran (as a proxy war with Russia) and while China claims the entire South China Sea territory, its claims are in conflict with Vietnam, Philippines, Taiwan, Malaysia and Brunei, each of which claim some portion of the area. The U.S. doesn't have an official position in either of these conflicts but would likely get involved.
  • Civil war in America increasingly likely. There is great ideological and cultural divide in America now. Conversation and reconciliation between the two sides seems impossible at this point, and there aren't enough Libertarians to bridge the divide.
  • Medical privacy gone. Vaccine cards; COVID cards; medical travel passports; judges issuing search warrants allowing police to perform invasive medical procedures from blood draws to cavity searches to surgeries on unwilling people suspected of hiding or using drugs; OSHA performing analysis of health information to look for problems that may be occurring in the workplace that, in their words, "require targeted prevention." And did you know there's a National Center for Medical Intelligence? It's part of the Defense Intelligence Agency. According to NBC news, in order to spy on us, the "NCMI calls upon all sources of intelligence — from communications intercepts to satellite imagery to human source reporting — to seek answers … It also combs open sources, such as social media." Some of the worst public policies imaginable are justified by the political class under the mantra of "keeping you safe" and "for the children."
