    Based on the world situation as it sits today, and the events we have seen in 2014, where do you see us on December 13, 2015.

    Where will the US be economically?

    What will the world economy look like?

    What will our personal lives look like?

    Will we see increased terrorism?

    Is a world war on the horizon?

    Instead of the end of year review, how about an end of year forecast.

    “Based on the world situation as it sits today, and the events we have seen in 2014, where do you see us on December 13, 2015.”

    Closer to the Financial Collapse, our National debt will be close to $20 Trillion

    “Where will the US be economically?”

    I believe they will do almost anything to keep us over water on the economy(print more, keep interest low, create wars) The beginning of 2016 to the end of 2016 is where the collapse will happen. Obama will declare marshal law and take over as a dictator.

    “What will the world economy look like?”

    Worldwide economical collapse which has never been seen before, many will die.

    “What will our personal lives look like?”

    We that are trying are best to prepare as best as we can will have it a little easier but there will be many wanting what you have. Crime will go so high that we will all lose sleep keeping our families safe. There will be new challenges we may not have prepared for. All of us life’s will change.

    “Will we see increased terrorism?”

    Yes

    “Is a world war on the horizon?”

    I am not sure if it will be a world war. All the countries like China, Russia and the U. S. know that nuclear war would destroy the land for 100’s to 1,000’s of years so I do not think they want to go there. But many small wars all around the world yes. We may see an EMP attack or cyber attack.

    “Instead of the end of year review, how about an end of year forecast.”

    The end of 2014 will not see much. All of this will happen into end of 2015 or 2016. This is my view.

    Q1 & 2: The slow grind, the death spiral will continue. 35 years later and zim still hasn’t imploded, 22 years later, the same for South Africa.
    It may get better, it may get more difficult. But that’s what’s always happened, periods of boom and bust.

    Q4: Of course, both in reality but also because of the disinformation cowpath. A shrew in Hokkaido Japan can’t fart without a researcher in Antarctica being able to watch it 5 minutes later. With the proliferation of cameras, linked phones and such, the terrs themselves are making sure the world doesn’t miss anything.
    Let alone the near instaneous media coverage, the dust hasn’t settled and live feeds happen for days.

    Q5: We have been much closer.
    The general public just didn’t know.

    The problem put into a different analogy is that we have a room full of Malainois K9s, highly trained and experienced. You throw an Afghan in the room, with its empty head, and expect it to keep up?
    Sure its “pretty” amd friendly, but useless in comparison. Such is our leader and his cronies.

    So is there one on the horizon? There always is. The difference is, previously we had professionals running the show. Even the much maligned Bush II knew more how the world worked and what to do.
    Remember what his daddy did at the CIA?

    Q3: Much is going to depend on our decisions rather than some global agenda. I have no control over what happens in the Golan Heights nor Chicago Heights and bluntly if either side takes over it means nothing to me in reality and will have no effect on me practically.

    Things may be tight for us indidually but the odds of calamity striking us all is beyond belief.

    Predictions:
    Congress wil tell Zero to go pound sand, yet do nothing with much substance.
    Comrade Bob will finally succumb to something and a power vacuum will occur effecting SA heavily, the Chinese will finally have Africa under their control.
    Meanwhile on the home front, preppers will continue to be ridiculed, and will fall out of the popular press as it were. Shows like Doomsday Preppers will be off the air and a Honey Boo Boo sequel will be announced.
    .22 will finally be available and priced normally.
    People will finally start buying American rather than cheap imported junk, boosting our economy and tanking that of china.
    The Boers finally have enough and take and keep the Cape, Orania expands to a territory, both gain UN support and recognition.

    Okay some may be reaches, but they could happen.
    Whatever happens, keep your powder dry, I’m afraid we may need it soon.

    I see the US still spinning its wheels and going nowhere in a new idiotic military conflict , that it is incapable of winning . I see inflation rising steadily , to the point that even left wing liberals are starting to question , I see another attack on the 2nd amendment , that will ultimately fail , but still be attempted . I dont see the big collapse happening in 2015 , I think the band aids will still hold , not by much , but still hold . I dont see a real crisis until 2016-17 . I also DO see an election 2016 , both parties are the same and part of the same scam …….why not have an election ? THe United States has still had elections in the middle of wars , even a civil war , why would we not in all reality ? The man power for martial law theory is not there , not to mention an armed population . I see food prices becoming a real issue that they will have to face sooner rather than later , and attempt an appeasement . Even Nixon ordered a price freeze , I could see O doing an EO , to make himself look good if enough pressure by the people was applied .

    22 will finally be available and priced normally. This statement wins the most farfetched award so far.

    Buy a 22 Hornet, 218 bee or some other reloadable cartridge, cast your own bullets and have an endless supply of ammo. Because the world isn’t going back to the way it was ever.

    Economically globalization and a trend towards socialism has caused us to be in decline for decades even if the Titans of Wall St & DC did a great job of papering it over, and so on one hand it is plausible to think it can go on for another year. Nothing goes on forever however and it seems the cracks in the system are growing wider. That said, barring a crippling cyber attack or other form of WWIII breaking out, I think the economy will hold out for another year. It won’t hold out forever but I’m sure it has at least another year left to it.

    The greater concern I have for the next year is a crippling cyber attack or other form of WWIII breaking out. There I’m not as confident that we’ll just see more of the same for another year. I say this because it seems like the pace of cyberwar is increasing as are the number of hot spots around the world. Our enemies are growing more bold, perhaps because they know we’ve got an amateur in the Whitehouse, or perhaps because they are finally ready to act. Maybe both.

    At a personal level, unless war or personal tragedy comes to my doorstep, I don’t see my life changing to any significant degree in the next year. I will just keep plugging along at building my personal self sufficiency, but if it all fell apart tomorrow, I am already in a better position than most.

    I believe our economy will crash around September of next year. This may cause some to roll their eyes but i was reading the other day about the cycles our economy follows in comparison to the Jewish calendar. I don’t remember the exact numbers but something like 80% of the notable dives in our economy have happened seven years apart and during a shmita year. They also have coincided with specific Jewish holidays. The Jewish calendar is different than ours and their yearly holidays fall on different dates from year to year by our calendar. Anyway without going into a long explination based on what i read it could happen in either May or September. The waythings are going and the actikns our government is taking i believe it will be an orchestrated event that will parallel these time frames. I don’t think the government is following the calendar but coincidentally i believe it will happen during one of these time frames. To me it would make sense for our government to cause an effect and then wait until many have died and others are desperate and then take over. A lot of people will roll over and submit just to get something to eat. It is a similar strategy that was used on Hitler. Who ever has been in the background playing his O puppet will come forward and “save the day”.

    I did a quick Internet search and found this site. I couldn’t view the first video but the written explication sums up what i was talking about above. If you follow the Jewish calendar farther back there several other US economic events that follow the cycle.

    Of all the wild-a$$ guesses and predictions I have EVER HEARD, this one takes the cake! As in, AIN’T HAPPENIN’!!!

    Thought that one would get some attention.

    The disturbing part is no comments on the rest.

    I finally gave in and bought an air rifle and air pistol. 800 fps and 610fps, respectively. I can still practice plinking, small game hunting. Also, work on the basics breathing, trigger control, target acquisition, etc. It’s fun and cheap and allows me to stock up on .22 when I can.

    As far as where we’ll be next year? Same place we are now. Only more of it. Gradual restrictions, more injustice and prices higher without wages reflecting the increase. Slow decline morally and economically. I do so worry for my daughter (and all our children.)

    My thoughts may be slightly different than others.

    Most of the economic forecasters that I follow predict an economic collapse anytime between 4Q2015 and 4Q2016.

    By this time next year the Empire of Amerika will be 19+ Trillion in the “Official Hole” and when using GAAP, the Imperial Debt will stand at 207+ Trillion.

    Somewhere down the short path, the world will lose “faith” in the Dollar and then the brown poo will hit the oscillating rotor.

    The Imperial Mandarins will order a “Bank Holiday” of some duration, likely two weeks, which I believe will be extended as needed. EBT Cards will not work. Neither will your ATM, Debit or Credit Cards and you will be unable to cash a check. How long until the ten minority majority cities begin to burn?

    How will all State/Local/Federal Employees get paid? Military? Veterans?

    How will private employers pay their employees?

    So many possibilities for collapse it stuns the mind.
