It’s the last day of the year, so it’s time to talk about what might happen in the next one. I did that last year with somewhat mixed results. Some came true. Some may yet come true. We’ll see how I do this time, next year.
Unfortunately, I am far more confident than I was last year. I hesitated to be definite last year, because I knew that the elites could still kick the can down the road for another year.
However, this year, they’ve run out of road …and time.
Please finalize your disaster plans.

War and Collapse in 2015
When facing disaster, you can be embarrassed before it happens, or after. I don’t remember who originally said that, but it is something to keep in mind.
Because everything seems fine – just before it isn’t.
2014 Seemed Pretty Good
For most Americans, and hopefully for you, 2014 was a pretty good year. You kept your job and paid your bills. Your kids did well in school. You went on vacation. And, you got a new car.
But, was 2014 a good year?
America overthrew the government in Kiev and installed a puppet regime. The US then went on to goad Russia into annexing Crimea.
Since Russia didn’t respond in the way that the State Department expected, the US went on to goad Russian further – with sanctions and then more sanctions. They also heated up the conflict in Syria as their love-child – ISIS – began to take more and more territory.
We then brought in a flood of illegal immigrants and did virtually nothing about a far more dangerous immigrant – Ebola.
We’ve made the theft of your assets legal, if they are held within a bank. If you have money in your bank account, it will act as a guarantor for the derivative bets that your bank is playing with, on Wall Street. When those bets go bad – and they will – you will lose everything.
2015 – Bank Failure
One of those bets is on oil. In fact, a distressingly large number of derivative contracts are connected to the price of oil. If the price of oil stays low, then those bets will fail. And, that will mean trillions of dollars in losses by the banks.
Who will pay for those losses?
You will – because they will take your bank deposits and the deposits of your employer, to pay for those losses.
This means that you will lose all your money AND your job.
But, it gets worse.
2015 – War
The US government could have chosen to mind their own business and fix America’s problems at home. Unfortunately, they didn’t and chose instead to start a war with Russia. Every month has seen an escalation of that war, and America is the cause of that escalation.
It has gotten so bad that Russians have begun to actively hate the United States. Even worse, Russia has gone back to preparing for a nuclear war that they do not want to fight. And, that means nuclear war with the United States.
2015 – Civil Unrest
Add to that our growing discontent with our government and the representatives of our government. The police have become targets, and government agencies will soon become targets, as well.
So, not only do we have a world war that is growing hot with Russia, we have an incipient civil war brewing in the United States. The question is when either of those wars will explode.
My hope is that you will have exited the blast zone long before hostilities escalate.
However, there is one thing that I am sure will explode in 2015:
Our financial system
2015 – Financial System Collapses
I believe that this will be the worst financial collapse in human history. If we are lucky, it will just be the worst financial collapse in 200 years, but I am not so sanguine.
2015 – Falling Dominoes
Never in the history of the world has so much debt and so many derivatives been piled on top of us. When the sovereign debt crisis begins, defaulting government debt will cause the collapse of trillions upon trillions of derivative contracts. Those collapsing contracts will cause the failure and collapse of banks around the world. The failure of banks will cause businesses to be unable to buy or sell. People will be tossed out of their jobs as businesses lay off workers in an attempt to survive.
People out of work will collapse government programs that were not designed to support so many people without jobs. As these government programs collapse, people will be unable to afford food and shelter.
People without enough food will riot in the streets and burn down their neighborhoods. When no food is forthcoming, rioters will look to plunder neighborhoods nearby. As riots in the cities spread, even more people will be unable to go to work, because their route to work will be through – and around – areas that are rioting. Food delivery will also stop, as truck drivers will be unwilling to risk their lives to make deliveries.
The food situation will escalate. A banking collapse will also mean that farmers will be unable to purchase seed for the next growing season. This means an increase in the cost of food, and hunger for those who are barely able to afford the food that they currently eat.
This is what happened in Egypt, when Mubarak was ousted. The riots were over food, not freedom.
2015/16 – Martial Law And Societal Collapse
Well, the Arab Spring is coming to America.
This will mean martial law, as our society collapses.
As the US government sees the threat of societal collapse increase, they will beat the war drums even louder, as a way to subdue the population of the United States. This has been the classic answer for governments seeking to distract their populations from bad news and difficult circumstances.
War With Russia
That will mean war with Russia – a war that America has already started.
However, Russia isn’t stupid. And, she knows how this war will end, if it is fought on America’s terms. Therefore, Russia will change how this war is fought, and where it is fought.
This means that America is doomed to lose this war. The Russians are better motivated and far more ruthless than the US. There will be no hesitation on the part of the Russians to use nuclear weapons – or any other weapon what would ensure victory.
My suspicion is an EMP attack that could be blamed on North Korea. But, it could also be a full-on nuclear war, or something more limited – if America’s ability to respond is neutralized quickly enough. Russia could also launch sabotage operations against America’s power grid, in hopes of permanently crippling America – so that she would be unable to pursue a full-scale conflict with Russia.
But, no matter which way Russia chooses to defend herself, millions upon millions of Americans will die. In a worst-case scenario, 300 million Americans could lose their lives.
The good news is that war with Russia might start slowly enough for you to get out of harm’s way – if you act now. In fact the worst of it could happen in 2016. But, I wouldn’t want to bet on this.
Yes, your friends, neighbors and family will sneer and laugh at your efforts to avoid this disaster. That always happens. Those same friends, neighbors and family will suffer the full effects of their folly at the same time that they realize that you were right.
But, please do not worry about such foolish people. You MUST get out of harm’s way as soon as you can.
Please also remember that after THIS disaster hits, there is another one coming that is far, far worse:
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
