Troops are massing, a bioweapon continues its harvest, real incomes are falling compared to the Nation’s monetary base expansion, and we have sold-off most of our energy independence, not to mention the means to become self-sufficient.
All while, America’s Fifth Column has been nurtured by know-nothings in social media while border jumpers soar to new records, aided and abetted by an administration sending unvaccinated people to formerly safer regions of the country.
Just when a hard-nosed reality was getting nervous, earlier this year, that things could go to hell in a handbasket sooner than later, an American submarine may have been a submarine killer drone-target in the Pacific. If you know where to look on the web, pictures of topsides and sail damage as the Connecticut pulled into harbor can be found.
The open-minded Truth-Seeker is confused: Our Naval says it was an underwater mountain. But we know a few things about terrain avoidance systems. and for a fact that mountains don’t touch topsides. Yet, there is “The Photochop Problem.” Whether China has sent us a message, or whether web shills are driving clickbait is hard to assess.
Yet, regardless of the specifics – which hardly matter to us now – there is a very dangerous year starting less than 10-days from now.
Setting Up the Board
Headlines will do a lot of set piece decision-making.
Once the darling of the liberal leftist mainstream media, a crowd that can’t even do its own plumbing/gender checks, faith in the once triumphant Slo Biden has cratered: Inside the administration’s failure to avert a covid testing shortfall. Everything’s a Business Model.
While in Israel, 4th vaccine shots are coming, here in ‘Merica, the CDC continues to lie, mislead, and deceive on their flawed “plandemic” promotion plan through crooked data. Why won’t Florida, CDC release state’s breakthrough COVID data? The answer should be intuitive.
Meanwhile, Christmas travel is on-the-rocks for tens of thousands as Lufthansa, Delta, United report cancellations over Christmas.
War Coming, too
While upright humans await the arrival of push-around IV bags on roller-stands, there’s also the coming Buy’ed em train wreck in Eastern Europe.
Just this week, the Slo in chief announced the U.S. would not become involved militarily in Ukraine. As this was going down, Satellite images show Russia still building up forces near the border. Leaving former Soviet-era Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev to state what the fifth rail cells in government and media can’t admit: US Became ‘Arrogant’ After Fall Of Soviet Union: Gorbachev.
With Biden’s bumbler-in-chief demeanor, it shouldn’t be April yet before he’ll oversee the fall of Taiwan to China and the completion of America’s global power leadership role.
As all this (pardon) shit hits the fan, we will also be suffering a massive inflation. Because while the Federal Reserve has been talking a Big Lie on tapering, the reality is that without the Big Biden Spending Plan, there will be little means of injecting additional money into the failed American economy.
As we sink into second (or third) world status, you can plan on the supplies of everything you need becoming sketchy, at best.
Already, we see the attacks tuning up on the perimeter: A Hacking Slugfest Between Iran and Its Foes Sparks Fears of a Wider Cyberwar. This sort thing will spread. Got a digital-free life plan in your back pocket?
The saving grace of hacking, though, is it will come piecewise. The bigger approach is the use of EMP (or, directed energy weapons). But the major powers have already put it on the line: If these are employed, the first-strike nation will promptly be glassed-over.
My consigliere offered some real seasonal cheer to clients this week (this is the happy part) in a report tomorrow for Peoplenomics: On how we are inching toward the “X” spot on his projections made more than 40-years ago. When War with China (and world) got rolling in the 2024 to 2026 timeframe. Which – don’t look now – Ukraine and Taiwan will likely be “warm-up wars” to kickstart the real harvest of souls in a few years.
Ah…enough of the wrapping paper. Let’s move on to…
How It Lays Out in Charts
The market moving to a recent high intraday Wednesday leaves a rather stark Elliott Wave to be considered:
Our Peoplenomics.com subscribers have access to a “roughed out” spreadsheet tool I came up with a few years back. It’s called “OpenBrain.xlsx”
Kind of a neat tool: You can put in the first move of an Elliott Wave and it will project out some possible endpoints.
From the high of Nov. 8 through the close yesterday (see the Wave II actual entry in yellow) we have a pretty good idea how the market will play out when Russia goes to the Dnieper River:
Why this is not more apparent, and MAY result in a serious year-end sell-off, is that the larger Wave 2 rally we’re in has been a complex move. With a top possibly in, as long as the previous Aggregate High isn’t exceeded (41,953 and change) from here, we are set to put in a decline which might bring markets down 10% by, oh, March, or so.
At the larger historical view, we always like to haul out the comparison of present times with the 1920-1929 run up into collapse. As of Wednesday, of this week, things looked like this:
As of the close Thursday, we were within 10-points of being an idealized double-top for the Wave 2, so a minor (I mean really small) gain early next week is possible.
Winter is coming, though. As the ground in Ukraine gets solid enough for mechanized divisions, Vlad Putin will come to the aid of his Russian-speaking majority and NATO won’t have anything left to do but “whine and sanction” – both of which are small costs for petroleum-rich real estate. Possession is 99 percent of the law, as the saying goes.
Around the Ranch
Construction continues today on the “Christmas Room.” Which will allow us a small (10X20) radiation resistance grow room off the side of the music studio. Won’t get completely completed likely until early next week.
The prime rib will come out of the fridge about 10 AM getting set for the 2:30 oven appointment.
Overall, it’s been a good year for us. But as we roll into the homestretch, there’s a gnawing feeling of never being “ready-enough” for that which Future might deliver.
Our core “Live By” mottos have served us well, for another year.
- Everything is a Business Model.
- Only one person is responsible for how your Life’s going.
- Plan strategically for minimal loss potential, not maximum gains.
The world is – in our view – on the backside of a long technological peak. Spoken of in history before; vimanas of ancient India, Babel as the last communications disaster prior to social.
History is not precisely cyclical, but with an open mind and a fair bit of research, you’ll occasionally catch a rhyme now and then.
Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2022.
We’re all going to need it.
