News out of Cycle March 2023

 News out of Cycle March 2023

By John P. Smith

Editor, Apocalypse Watch News

Once again we find ourselves with a plethora of distractions to keep our focus on anything other than what’s important. What’s important? How about our “inalienable human rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Every action by the Biden regime in the U.S. and the WEF overall is calculated to oppress, suppress or infringe on the rights of individual citizens and expand the power of the state. 

They want us either dead or enslaved. Who knows, maybe both! I don’t know who said it, so I’ll paraphrase: Nobody accumulates power with the intention of giving it up. The next axiom we need to remember is that knowledge is power. An overarching theme we see in everything coming out of the criminal media, the state propaganda machine, is that everything they tell us is misdirection, blatant misinformation and targeted disinformation. In short, lies!

Lies by omission are still lies. Whenever I see something start dominating the headlines of the criminal media, I start looking for what they’re trying to keep me from seeing. Here’s a few things the criminals who’ve stolen our government want us to stop looking at and thinking about: 

Biden’s Classified Documents: This issue is yet to come to a head. But we’re not hearing anything about it from the deep-state, criminal media. Interesting how as soon as Biden’s classified caches were uncovered, we started having Chinese balloon and UFO sightings and shoot-downs. Biden’s serious breach of national security is being swept under the political rug. They don’t want us to remember it, talk about it or demand action on it. Their plan appears to be working. Nothing’s happening.

Instead, we are all looking at the shiny objects in the sky. Does anybody think there are suddenly more than there were a couple of months ago? The answer is, “NO!” The only difference is that now they’re allowed to talk about them. Balloons and other Unidentified Aerial Phenomena are suddenly all the rage. Everybody look up! Don’t worry about what’s going on in Ohio. Did anybody catch what NORAD and Northern Command had to say about the Chinese Balloon fiasco? In short, they’ve recalibrated their instruments so they can see better. Really.

Here’s an interesting question on the Chinese balloon and the subsequent four shoot-downs of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena: Why did it take a $400,000 Sidewinder missile to drop these balloons and whatever else they were? If, as reported in several feeds, the object over Lake Huron was, in fact, a weather or hobby balloon, then we didn’t need to expend a $400K missile to drop it in the lake. These aircraft are equipped with 20mm Gatling cannons. Surely we could have dropped a balloon with a few rounds from the gun.

While we’re all scanning the skies for UAPs, UFOs or clouds shaped like animals, the House hearings on the weaponized government bureaus are still going on. No criminal media agencies are reporting on it. The House investigation is doing nothing. The criminal media is covering nothing on this subject. And, suddenly, the FBI is trying to make out like they’re the good guys. We all know better. Since at least 2015 the FBI has been in the pocket of the DNC. I’m sure it goes all the way back to the Obama years, but it became blatantly obvious in 2016 when Hillary Clinton was given an FBI pass following her flagrant violations of security protocols. Anybody who was looking could clearly see the bias in the investigation into Clinton’s shenanigans. Follow that up with the firestorm of investigations into Donald Trump and his supporters. It should have become clear to any observer that the FBI was used as a weapon against Trump, and by extension, the citizens of the United States.

And now they’re having a public relations crisis. Nobody trusts them. With good reason. The FBI has become a tool of the Democratic Party and an enemy of the people.

With that in mind, here’s a good one: Suddenly, the Department of Energy has concluded an investigation into the origins of COVID-19 and said it came from a lab in Wuhan, China. Shortly thereafter, Christopher Wray, FBI Director, admitted in an interview that, yes, the FBI had pretty much concluded the same thing “a long time ago.” My first question is: Why admit this NOW? What are we not seeing when something like this is shoved in our faces? Follow up question: If the FBI knew this “a long time ago” then why are social media platforms still banning, censoring and jailing anyone who says they believe the lab leak theory? Does any of this make sense? Only if they’re taking money from China.

For two years, criminal media talking heads and social media “fact checkers” disavowed the lab leak story as “conspiracy theory” and labeled anyone as a “racist” who had the gall to say they thought it was true. What do we make of the Democrat Gestapo (FBI) saying they’ve known for a while that the COVID virus originated in a Chinese lab? What’s in it for the FBI to come clean on the lab theory all of sudden? This admission is making headlines in the criminal media. That tells me they’re covering for something else. Maybe Biden’s classified document scandal?

Or, maybe they want to take the heat off the Food and Drug Administration for fast-tracking the COVID vaccines for world-wide distribution without actually verifying the vaccine does what it’s supposed to do? More and more information from studies, whistleblowers and credible doctors come to light on this crime against humanity practically every day. We see daily evidence of the horrendous rise in deaths related to the COVID vaccination. Why isn’t anybody (but me and a few other alternative media types) asking when is someone in the FDA, the CDC, the NIH and the WHO going to be held accountable for the millions of deaths associated with those vaccines? This is a big deal. A big story, but it’s out of the news cycle, for obvious reasons.

We see more evidence every day of the deadliness of the COVID Vaxx. But what’s on the front page of every major criminal media outlet? Woody Harrelson made fun of Pfizer and the vaccine on Saturday Night Live. For the heinous crime of having an opinion contrary to the narrative, Harrelson is being boiled alive by every criminal media organization. While everyone is watching Woody Harrelson skewed on the front pages, what are we missing? 

Maybe that’s to keep us from asking the question of who blew up the Nordstream II pipeline? Nobody knows for sure. My take: Somebody knows for sure because somebody blew it up. Sometimes, it’s difficult to tell what’s the distraction and what it’s supposed to hide. Take the Ohio Chemical Train Wreck for an example. Was this done to distract us from the stories about Biden’s Classified Document scandal? Maybe it was done intentionally so all eyes would be on Ohio instead of the Nordstream II pipeline after a respected journalist, Seymour Hersh, published a story with details on how the Biden Administration and the CIA are responsible for the sabotage. The irony here is that, if true, the perpetrators created an unprecedented environmental disaster in Ohio to call attention away from the unprecedented environmental disaster caused by the Nordstream II explosion. Nevermind that it would constitute a blatant act of war against Russia.

The people we pay to investigate and prosecute the quilty in these kinds of disasters are sitting on their hands, doing and saying nothing. Forward momentum in any of these cases would keep them in the headlines. We’re supposed to be upset about an actor making fun of a criminal organization. We’re not supposed to be thinking about the bumbling incompetence of the Biden regime and their blatant disregard for the truth.

What else is the criminal media and weaponized government not wanting to talk about?

January 6 Footage is (allegedly) released.

Evidence of rampant election fraud.

The growing rift between the U.S. and Russia…and China.

Biden vows to ban “assault weapons” Come “hell or high water.”

The National Divorce Narrative. (This subject is getting some traction, so it might be part of the distraction to keep us off what really counts.)

Keep watching. Review multiple sources. Avoid any criminal (legacy, mainstream) media. Form your own opinion and don’t be afraid to say it out loud.

The Chinese Balloon Debacle and UFO Flap

By John P. Smith
Independent Journalist
12 FEB 2023, Arkansas

Following the Chinese spy balloon debacle, North American forces have subsequently been involved in two separate UAP/UFO shoot downs a week later. Why are they telling us any of this? What would be a better distraction than Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (aka Unidentified Flying Object) attack?

Not buying any of it.

This is a distraction. There’s always an agenda and nothing good is going to come out of this ridiculousness. We all know why the deep state, criminal administration and specifically, Joe Biden, need a distraction. A quick list:

  • The FBI/DOJ is in front of Congress being grilled on the weaponization of their resources against American citizens.

  • There’s a huge House investigation into the Biden Crime Family. There’s more and more evidence of election fraud in 2020 and 2022 elections.

  • The vaccines are killing people and nobody is investigating any of that even as more and more doctors and researchers blow the whistle.

  • The U.S. and NATO are about to give Ukraine modern tanks and fighter aircraft that are going to escalate our involvement in the growing war.

  • Seymour Hersh exposed the CIA and Biden Administration for blowing up the Nordstream II Pipeline. An act of war on Russia.

Of course these people need a distraction. After the complete failure of NORAD and our defense system for North America allowing a Chinese spy balloon to completely traverse the United States and parts of Canada, we’re suddenly amazingly proactive in dropping aerial threats. That doesn’t make any sense. 

The whole balloon scenario doesn’t make any sense. We’ve had protocols in place since the end of World War II for dealing with attacks via balloon. This isn’t a new thing. We’ve been attacked from weaponized balloons before. In 1945, a Japanese balloon bomb killed 6 civilians in Oregon. The U.S. military has had plans for dealing with them for 75 years. Instead of following protocols, the Chinese balloon was allowed to collect data for over a week.

It wasn’t a big deal according to the Biden Administration and criminal media. But, why let it pass at all? All we’ve heard are stupid and nonsensical excuses thrown out by the administration and the military. Why not it drop over Alaska or Canada, like the next UAP/UFO threat we’re being told was removed from the sky?

Over Alaska, a U.S. forces F-22 fighter reportedly shot down a UAP/UFO that looked like a small car. (Do some UFO research and you’ll find references to this kind of vehicle.) Why was it safe to drop one over Alaska now? But not the known Chinese Spy Balloon? There’s something hinky going on.

Next, one day later, we had U.S. and Canadian forces shoot down another UAP/UFO that, according to reports didn’t “act like a conventional aircraft and had no visible means of propulsion.” This was shot down at “high altitude” by another F-22. What exactly does that mean? The balloon was at 70,000 feet (21,300 meters). Shooting down a balloon, or any conventional craft at that altitude is standard practice. (Gary Powers was at about 80,000 feet when the Russians took his U-2 out of the air in 1960.)

But there’s a difference between a balloon over South Carolina and an actual UAP/UFO. I don’t believe a conventional fighter craft, regardless of how advanced, could shoot down an interdimensional, interstellar or interplanetary craft at any altitude. It’s possible these weren’t conventional fighters, but that’s not what we’re being told. If our aircraft shot it down, it belonged to someone on this planet.

Reporting these military actions only makes sense if the deep state has something to gain. The CIA and U.S. government have covered up evidence of UAP/UFO incidents for the past 80 years. What better way to distract from all the congressional investigations and whistle blowers than to suddenly disclose some of that information? Why should we believe them? Show us some evidence and maybe we’ll consider it.

My opinion: I don’t believe anything we’re being told is the truth. As far as I’m concerned, the government and criminal media burned that bridge a long time ago. However, if there is any truth to the pile of crap being paraded out by the criminal media, several scenarios come to mind when looking at what they’re telling us happened and how it’s being presented.

First scenario: They’ll never tell us what it really is, but we’re going to be told it’s either Chinese or Russian spy drones. Like the Chinese balloon, this could and should be considered an act of war. We’ll never really know what they shot down, if they even dropped anything from the sky. We’re being prepped to support an escalation of the U.S. presence in the Ukrainian War. 

Second scenario: If these are real objects, and the jury is definitely still out on that, then my guess is someone is testing our response times and procedures. The most likely culprits being China. Maybe Russia or Iran. Right now all we’re getting is fluff on how awesome our defense system is and how heroic Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau are for “ordering” the destruction of these objects. That’s what we pay them for. 

Third scenario, and this is a giant speculative leap: The military is planning a takeover to get Joe Biden and Kamala Harris out of the command structure. The military can declare a war emergency, activate the Continuity of Government (COG) program, and put Air Force Gen. Glen VanHerck, Commander, North American Aerospace Defense Command and United States Northern Command, into his designated role as wartime leader of this country. (That’s a real thing, don’t take my word for it, do your own research.) This takes Joe Biden and Kamala Harris out of the command structure and allows the military to execute the war. Afterall, we are being attacked from the air by China and “unknown forces.” 


All possibilities, but my initial guess still stands. This is smoke and mirrors to get this country even deeper involved in what is looking to be World War III.

Warren Zevon Nominated

By John P. Smith
Independent Journalist

Warren Zevon, my favorite singer/songwriter, has finally been nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I don’t want to hurt his chances of induction by offering up the opinion that I think the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a stale joke. But, I can only be me.

Induction into the Hall, stupid as it is, can only help to bring some positive exposure to this creative, haunted, genius singer and songwriter. Several books have already been written about his, “Dirty Life and Times.” (The Wind, 2003) So, I don’t need to do it here.

But I do believe an introduction is necessary. Zevon died in 2003 from lung cancer.

Most people only know Zevon from the novelty hit, “Werewolves of London.” Sure, it’s a great, catchy tune, but not one of his best and definitely not indicative of the body of his work.

Born in 1947, Zevon was a musical prodigy, trained as a classical pianist in his formative years. Eventually, he dropped out of high school and moved to Los Angeles after some minor success as a singer and songwriter in the duet Lyme and Cybelle. Zevon worked writing jingles for commercials and as a session musician for several years, finally scoring a solo record deal for the album, “Wanted Dead or Alive.” (1970) While not a commercial success, Zevon spent six more years as a session musician, hanging out in the Laural Canyon scene, until his friend Jackson Brown agreed to produce another record. 

The self-titled, “Warren Zevon” (1976) is a masterpiece of classic rock. Even being named one of the top 10 albums of the 1970’s by Rolling Stone magazine. (Back when they were actually worth reading.) Anyone who does not have this album, go get it right now. Listen to it and you’ll begin to understand the world as Zevon brings it to you. It’s a world of sadness and hilarity. A world of jungle work, injured clowns, and mutineers. A world of headless mercenaries, philosophical musings, and unethical alter boys.

I can’t find the quote to attribute it, but I once read in an article about Zevon something like, “He’s not the kind of artist who writes a love song because he needs one for the new album. He writes a love song because he has to.”

I’ve been a fan of his work since I was in high school, buying an 8-track (yes, I am that old) of “Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School”, for the song, ”A Certain Girl.”  I was listening to Zevon and none of my classmates even had a clue who he was except for, “Werewolves of London.” Werewolves was from Zevon’s 1978 album, “Excitable Boy,” which was the best-selling release of his career, staying in the top ten on the Hot 100 for six weeks. 

This is where my personal connection to this underappreciated artist comes in. Zevon struggled with alcoholism throughout his career, managing to stay sober from the late ‘80s to the early 2000’s. I picked up the Zevon release, “Sentimental Hygiene” when it finally made it to my Air Force Base in Japan in 1987. I loved it; all of it. My friends hated it. It wasn’t Europe or Def Leppard or Van Halen, so they weren’t interested. To me, it was different and spoke to the heart and soul about being alive and appreciating what you have instead of just about sex, or girls. 

I put myself in alcohol rehab in 1989. And believe me when I tell you that military rehab is as close to prison as I ever want to get. On the “Sentimental Hygiene” album is a track called, “Rehab Mountain.” A song Zevon wrote about his own time in the Big House. I read a short article -- I don’t even remember where -- with Zevon telling how that song was about his time in a celebrity rehab facility. Even though, at the time, I felt like my life was over, listening to Zevon sing about being in the same predicament for the same reasons, made it a little easier to cope. If a creative genius like Zevon had the courage to face his demons and deal with an alcohol addiction, surely I could too. Now, 33 years sober, I occasionally fire up, “Rehab Mountain” just as a refresher and reminder of how things could -- and still can -- be different.

In later years, I’d come to appreciate Zevon even more, as I picked up more of his albums. (I have all of them. I know, big surprise.) He is a master of the quotable lyric: “And his hair was perfect.” or “Life’ll kill ya; then you'll be dead.”

Slippery lyrics that will make you think: “I’m very well acquainted with the seven deadly sins; I keep a busy schedule, trying to fit them in; I’m proud to be a glutton and I don’t have time for sloth; I’m greedy and I’m angry and I don’t care who I cross.”

Emotional lyrics that you understand because you’ve felt exactly that way. “Accidently like a marytr; the hurt gets worse and heart gets harder” or “I’m just going to slam myself against the wall; because I’d rather feel bad than not feel anything at all.”  And, “The moon has a face; it smiles on the lake; and causes these ripples in time; I’m lucky to be here with someone I like; who maketh my spirit to shine.”

My kids grew up listening to Zevon. I knew I’d raised ‘em right when I got into the vehicle one day and my youngest daughter was jamming to the songs off the “Life’ll Kill Ya” album. His music has been part of my healing and recovery. It’s been a part of my family history, with my kids picking up the mantle to continue the Zevon tradition. Now my grandson is named John Warren Jackson.

I keep wanting to say it’s not important whether Warren Zevon makes it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But, really, it is. It’s important to me. It’s a long-overdue oversight and he should have been there at the same time as Bob Dylan, The Byrds and Jackson Brown.

The Davos 2023 Global Grift

By John P. Smith
Independent Journalist

As a Watcher of the Apocalypse, I’ve been reading about and tracking what’s going on at the Davos 2023 summit. To say the least, it’s worrisome for us average grunt wage earners.

Anybody who’s keeping track, even a little bit, must be wondering, just like I am, exactly what kinds of evil plans they’re hatching to take our money, property, weapons and rights.

Frankly, I’m fairly irritated by the whole concept of a gaggle of unelected, unqualified, wealthy, bureaucratic grifters sitting around trying to figure out new ways to screw the rest of us out of what little we have.

For anyone not familiar with the Davos annual summit: It’s a World Economic Forum sponsored gathering of unelected, unqualified, wealthy, bureaucratic grifters sitting around trying to figure out new ways to screw the rest of us out of just about everything. We have things they want, like money, property, weapons and rights. By their philosophy, we should own nothing and like it. It is also worth noting that these people don’t give a single flying fartcicle about you or me. The sooner they can get us beat down and working for almost nothing, (slightly less than we’re making now,) the better off they’ll be. 

Aren’t we already there? Most of us? Most of the people who read my material will be able to identify with what I’m saying. Those who don’t are most likely hate bots and trolls who have nothing better to do than disagree with an opinion.

We drag our tired asses out of bed 5, 6, 7 days a week to go into a thankless factory job for pitiful wages in the hope that we can pay the utilities, put food on the table, gas in the car and maybe upgrade the internet. Yet, when we see that paycheck at the end of the week, half of it is already gone to taxes that get sent to Ukraine  and insurance we still can’t afford to pay the deductible on.

Sometimes, it doesn’t seem worth it. I truly understand why some people just say “screw it all” and go live in an old refrigerator under a bridge and hope someone throws them half a hot dog occasionally.

That’s what the Davos crowd wants for us. To own nothing and like it. They want us living in “15 minute cities” where we walk, or bike, to our factory and never leave our little enclave without permission. (I can’t wait until they figure out that shoe leather comes from cows and rubber is a petroleum product. And that steel can’t be smelted without coal and aluminum can’t be extracted from bauxite without electricity.)

That’s what they’re pushing for because of “Climate Change.”

Our old buddy Al Gore is there. He flew in on a private jet and had a private helicopter ride to the majestic Alpine Ski Resort in Davos, Switzerland. He got on stage and screamed, “It’s too late to save the planet!” What an awesome spectacle, to see someone who’s completely unqualified to preach to anybody about climate scream that climate change will kill us all. But there he is, harbinger of the apocalypse, spewing spittle like an enraged, pulpit-pounding pastor, telling us we’re all doomed.

The ridiculous posturing has the feel of a bad science fiction novel. But it’s all too real.

Why would anyone believe Al Gore? He lost all credibility when the world didn’t end a decade ago per his failed predictions of global catastrophe. Yet, there he is, pounding the apocalyptic pulpit, declaring (yet another) world-wide meltdown. Personally, I’m having a hard time giving a flying fartcicle what Al says.

Meanwhile, in a forum that featured disgraced CNN talking head and notable liar Brian Steltzer, European Commission VP Věra Jourová cackles like she’s in competition with Kamala Harris as she announces, "Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law." (Being disgraced by CNN has to be some kind of award-winning new low for a journalist.)

No one has really, actually, legally defined what "hate speech" is, but it’s very clear that the Davos people are seriously mad at it.

I’m just an old Arkansas hillbilly, factory monkey and I can define “hate speech” in a single sentence: Anything they don’t want us talking about.

To expand: The New World Order government needs to control the narrative and those conversations about the narrative, inside and outside the media. We’re not allowed to question the official story. We’re not allowed to think for ourselves or express opinions, facts or data contrary to the official story. 

It’s all for our safety. (Imagine the sarcasm font.)

They claim they’re trying to save the world. I got some news for the Davos crowd: My world doesn’t need your kind of saving. My world needs less taxes, lower prices, affordable medical care and open communication. Why don’t ya’ll work on that stuff instead of trying to take more of it away?

We don’t need a gaggle of rich hypocrites telling us how to live. We don’t need you, we don’t want you, we don’t even know you and we don’t like you.

Scoring 2022 Predictions: New 2023

Scoring: 2022 Predictions; New Prognostications for 2023

By John P. Smith

Independent Journalist

For the last five years, I've added to this same article, reviewing the previous years and adding new predictions. This year, I’ve shortened this up with summaries of the previous predictions. To see the LONG thread from 2017 to 2022, go to the article here

Prediction 1: Summary (Jan. 1, 2017): Clintons indicted for crimes. Discontinued = Didn’t happen.

Prediction 2: Summary (Jan. 1, 2017): Obama over-reach (Still happening), Trump 2nd Term. Discontinued = Didn’t happen.

Prediction 3: Summary (Jan. 1, 2017): Donald Trump will create a new paradigm in Government-to-people communication by continuing to bypass biased, untrustworthy, criminal media.

Jan. 1, 2022: A lot of talking heads have been fired or removed from their jobs, but they're replaced with liberal clones who are often worse than the original.

Score: The rise of Truth Social and popularity of Rumble make this a win.

NEW 2023: Early in his 2024 campaign, Trump purges “Truth Social” employees once the extent of CIA and FBI infiltration becomes clear.

Prediction 4: Summary (Jan. 1, 2017): Mass media and their owner/backers will attempt to forward legislation to prevent “Independent Journalists” from deploying news and opinion.

Score: The suppression of dissenting voices on major social media platforms makes this a win. The release of the Twitter Files showing government/big tech collusion to ban information contrary to the official narrative is icing on the cake.

NEW 2023: Let’s be real about this. With Elon stepping down as Twitter CEO, all the information obtained from the “Twitter Files” will become irrelevant. Information contrary to the official narrative will be allowed and no judge, government agency or decent human being will step up to correct it. Nothing happens. Our Consititutional rights to free speech and open discussion continue to be eroded because the only people who can stop it are us and we not angry enough. Not yet.

Prediction 5: Summary (Jan. 1, 2017): The demise of CNN. 

Score: Hasn’t happened yet. But they are dying. No more predictions on this thread.

Prediction 6: Summary: Fake News (Jan. 1, 2017): 

Score: Definite win. We all know how this is playing out. See Prediction 7.

Prediction 7: Summary (Jan. 1, 2017): Criminal media loses the trust of the people.

Jan. 1, 2022: While it's taking longer than I thought, the mainstream, liberal, legacy, criminal  media conglomerates are steadily losing viewership and eroding the public trust.  For instance, an article from AP tells the story of how media outlets are failing. Interesting coming from the Associated Press, which has turned into one of the most insidious culprits in biased reporting. I predict a further decline in trust in "traditional" media sources and more people turning to independent alternatives. 

Score: Direct hit. All Criminal Media are suffering.

NEW 2023:  As criminal media collusion with US government, big tech, big pharma the Chinese Communist party is exposed, readership/viewers continues to plummet.

Prediction 8: Summary (Jan. 1, 2017): Suppression of a new 9/11 investigation.

Jan. 1, 2022: As much as I'd like to see a real investigation of the 9/11 disaster, I'm not holding my breath. The Deep State has this locked down and the criminal media supports them. If the failure to release the Kennedy Assassination papers even 60 years after the CIA had him killed is any indication, the truth of what happened on 9/11 will not be told during my lifetime. 

Score: Failed. Not even on the radar. End of thread.

Prediction 9: Summary (Jan. 1, 2017): Truth in Climate Change narrative.

Jan. 1, 2022: Climate Change? What? It's still taking a backseat to the failed Corona Pandemic op.  Prediction: As long as they can keep virus "variants" as the primary mechanism of creating fear, they will let Climate Change lie in wait. As soon as the virus op finally peters out, Climate Change will be front and center in the fear-mongering media output.

Score: Direct hit. The virus op is failing and we see the climate change narrative coming to the forefront again.

NEW 2023: Food and energy shortages brought about by climate-friendly legislation leads to rioting and violent unrest in Europe.

Prediction 10: Summary (Jan. 1, 2017): The “Cashless Society” will be a big issue. This is a mechanism of control and it will be pushed at us hard.  Trump will not be a player; this push originates from the U.N., central banks and world governments.

Jan. 1, 2022: As a mechanism of control, this is near the top of the agenda.

Score: On point.

NEW 2023: Stacking functions: In parallel with “vaccine passports,” the digital dollar, or whatever Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) arises, these forms of identification will lead to more direct control of individuals by global governmental agencies. It doesn’t take much imagination, or just look at how Canada froze the assets of protesting truckers, to see how easy it will be to lock an individual’s bank accounts so they can’t eat, buy fuel, pay their utilities, if they refuse to do something like take a vaccine.    

Prediction 11: Summary (Jan. 1, 2017): Mass shooting and gun control.

Jan. 1, 2022: Prediction: This is an easy one. Anything that happens along these lines will be embellished and exaggerated to instill fear of guns. Any time someone with a gun prevents a killing or major mass casualty incident, the liberal asshat news media will find a way to convey that person in a negative light.

Score: Mostly on point.

NEW 2023: I expect a mass shooting at a Trump rally.

Prediction 12: Summary (Jan. 1, 2017): Assassination attempt on Trump.

Jan. 1, 2022: Prediction: I'm almost tempted to double down on this one. If Trump throws his hat in the ring for 2024, we might just see it happen. 

Score: Yet to be determined.

NEW 2023: If it looks like Trump will take the election, they (democrats, deep state, globalists, criminal media) will take more physical action. May not happen until 2024.

Prediction 13: Summary (Jan. 1 2017): Economic chaos.

Jan. 1, 2022: While the Biden administration is doing everything they can to crush small businesses and financial independence in the middle class, right now we're still making it despite the Dim's best efforts.  Prediction: I'm tempted to say it's all going to go to hell just so I can be proven wrong. As it is, as long as they have the Corona op to fall back on, the economy will continue to circle the drain.

Score: Direct hit. Inflation, rising prices, reduced manufacturing and oil production tell the story.

NEW 2023: EPA mandates to require certain percentages of renewable energy on state grids leads to massive power outages and innumerable deaths from cold and/or heat. Fuel shortages create situations where backup power generation fails.

Prediction 14: Summary (Jan. 1 2017): UFO/Alien disclosure.

Jan. 1, 2022: Prediction: I believe this will be the year the Corona Op finally dies and the Alien Invasion Op starts.  Said it right here!

Score: Failed. Alien Invasion op never got started.

NEW 2023: There’s been a lot of noise in the US government about “UAP” and “UFO” disclosure. But, we haven’t heard the truth in 75 years, why start now? Coverup continues.

Prediction 15: Summary (Jan. 1, 2018): Trump, US debt and the wall. A quagmire of political corruption, drug trafficking, human trafficking and money laundering.

NEW 2023: States (Texas, New Mexico, Arizona) will take regional action to close their borders.

Prediction 16: Summary (Jan. 1, 2018): Robotic/AI citizenship and integration into society.

Jan. 1, 2022: 2019 was the year of the AI scare. No more predictions on this thread.

Prediction 17: Summary (Jan. 1, 2018): Vaccines: We will be more and more “encouraged” to take the flu vaccine. Meanwhile, whistleblowers will come out with unimpeachable evidence that vaccines create disorders in children. This evidence will be ignored by the criminal media.

Jan. 1, 2022: This prediction was pretty darn close. We're not quite there yet, but they'll keep pushing the division between pro/anti-vaccine camps. They (deep state, socialists, communists, Democrats, take your pick) could not get any traction with the BLM/Antifa/White Privilege narrative so they added the Vaxxed versus Unvaxxed division. The idea being as long as we're looking at each other, no one is looking at them.  Prediction: This will continue. I would not be surprised if the UFO Scare Op doesn't generate another way to divide the populace. For instance, by blood type.

Score: A hit and a miss. The early prediction of division of the vaccinated was dead on. However, the addition of the Alien Menace has yet to materialize.

NEW 2023: The division of the vaccinated and unvaccinated continues in spite of direct evidence that the “pandemic of the unvaccinated” was a complete lie.

Prediction 18: Summary (Jan. 1, 2018): Delusion will replace genetics as “infinite” genders are allowed in group settings.

Jan. 1, 2022: This has continued to be one of the big agenda issues for the liberal left. So much so that liberal teachers and coaches are allowing "transgender" athletes to compete in sports based on their sexual preference rather than their genetic makeup. Oddly, this seems to be a one-way street: Boys who want to be girls competing in women's sports.  I haven't seen any articles or instances of girls wanting to be boys competing in men's competitions. Meanwhile, transgender "girls" are breaking records and kicking ass all over the country. Prediction: Enough parents will get angry enough to remove school boards, teachers and coaches who encourage this kind of behavior. Or, more possibly, parents will simply refuse to let their female children compete -- which makes the whole thing a throw-back to Dark Age social mores -- and ends up in a state where "biological females" don't get to play sports but transgender girls do.  

Score: Yeah.

NEW 2023: States and local communities are pushing back on this stupid situation. I predict we’ll eventually see a third grouping of “transgender” athletes made almost entirely of boys wanting to be girls. If this doesn’t happen, women’s sports will be completely destroyed by biological males competing as women.

Prediction 19: Summary (2020 Prediction): Trump wins the White House again.

Score: Fail. End of thread.

Prediction 20: Summary (2020 Prediction): The Moon.

NEW 2023: Still nothing. I really expected new information or missions to the moon, for a variety of reasons. A lot of people making noise about Mars. The best place to launch a mission to Mars would be from the moon. There's thangs going on that we don't know.

From 2022: (Numbered in order)

Prediction 2022-1) Media and production companies such as Disney, DC and Marvel Comics will continue to "get woke" until they actually wake up to the fact that nobody's buying their bullshit. Profits for these institutions will continue to plummet. Each will have to decide to start selling what the consumer is willing to buy; or fail. Prediction: DC and Marvel will regroup and live; Disney will continue until they fail -- probably not this year.

Score: Direct Hit.

NEW 2023: The more people vote with their money, the more woke businesses will fail. Those businesses that get back to basic entertainment and stop shoving the liberal agenda in our faces might make it. 

2022-2) For me, 2021 wasn't a bad year. Nobody was shooting at me and I wasn't forced to shoot at anybody. As far as I'm concerned, in these times, that's a good year. I don't know if we'll make it through 2022 with the same success record. We're headed for a hot conflict. It won't be ignited by draconian quarantine mandates or government over-reach. Prediction: The hot conflict will start when one group of citizens take matters into their own hands and deny essential services (health, medical, consumer goods, manufacturing materials)  to another group based on media misinformation and government propaganda.

Score: Fortunate fail.

NEW 2023: Our US government continues to drive a wedge between demographic groups. The Covid op is completed. I won’t say it failed when 80-percent of the country took an experimental vaccination the ramifications of which of only starting to materialize. To shift focus from the increasing mortality of the vaccinated, climate deniers will be targeted.

2022-3) Prediction 2022-2 got me thinking.  Prediction: Unvaxxed citizens begin refusing to work with Vaxxed individuals when it is proven that the vaccine increases the possibility of catching and spreading the virus or variants

Score: Near miss. 

NEW 2023: With more and more evidence of vaccine malfeasance, showing that vaccinated individuals are more likely to catch and transmit Covid, unvaccinated individuals will start to avoid gatherings of the injected. I expect to see Pureblood parties in our future.

2023 NEW Predictions:

2023-1) Trump has already thrown his hat into the ring. If Desantis decides to run and/or gets the Republican nomination, Trump will run as an independent, splitting the vote and handing the Whitehouse to Biden again.

2023-2) Rising fuel prices will push rail and trucking concerns to strike.

2023-3) Worldwide food and fuel shortages will create unrest across Europe and the Middle East. The US will only suffer minor inconveniences…this year. More food processing facilities and clearing houses will “catch fire” or otherwise be shut down, pointing to a rough 2024.

2023-4) More disclosure of catastrophic vaccine injuries leads the government, big pharma and criminal media to attempt further coverup of the vaccine malfeasance. 

2023-5) On top of the food and fuel shortages, European citizens will revolt against their respective governments due to vaccine mandates and malfeasance.

2023-5) The Russians defeat the Ukrainians, taking control of the country.

2023-6) China annexes Taiwan. North Korea stirs up trouble on the Korean Pennisula as a distraction. The US does nothing about Taiwan.

2023-7) Israel strikes the Iranian nuclear facility.

2023-8) Following the disclosure of the Twitter files and subsequent release of information from Facebook, the FBI is subject to Congressional hearings on election interference and usurpation of individual rights to free speech. There’s a lot of noise, but ultimately, nothing happens.
