In spite of Obama’s rosy State of the Union message, from my perspective 2016 will be a year of crisis for the United States and the world in a world full of crisis. Instead of Obama ending his term gloating about his accomplishments, he may end his term with dung on his face when everything falls apart before he leaves office. The fall of Obama might be much like the fall of George Bush on steroids…or laxatives.
Economic crisis in a world full of crisis:
One world crisis that is looking increasing likely in 2016 is an economic downturn. There are indicators that already point to a recession in the United States. For example, rail traffic is way down and the stock market and commodities are tanking. Economies that are now crashing around the world will also have a negative effect on the American economy.
China is way overbuilt because greedy crony’s of that fascist government borrowed way too much from shadow banks to keep the building projects going. Now China has too many factories, too much production and too many homes that are not affordable – they even have ghost cities. China will now pay the price of having too much private debt and more production than the world can buy.
China will devalue their currency to try to keep market share and the resultant falling prices will negatively impact production in other nations of the world. America already runs a half trillion-dollar trade imbalance with China each year. It will only get worse if China further devalues their currency. Trading with China by China’s rigged rules are killing American businesses. However, if America tries to level the playing field, China will have to further devalue their currency or their economy will collapse.
The economies of Brazil and Canada are crashing. Oil nations are living on their cash reserves if they have any. The economies of Europe, Japan and the United States are stagnant.The central bankers have kicked the can down the road for about as long as they can with their debt restructuring and zero interest rates.
Those zero interest rates enticed underdeveloped nations to borrow, but those cheap loans will have to be refinanced with more expensive currency at higher interest rates. Underdeveloped nations will not be able to afford that. Thus, these nations will also have to devalue their currencies in some effort to increase market share of their products or else they will default on their loans (defaults could cause major banks to fail).
All this tells me that a race to the bottom is shaping up. Another term for that is a world depression.
The feeble U.S. expansion that Obama flaunts mostly occurred as a result of more borrowing from the future. The prosperity delusion in America will disappear as the stock and bond markets crash.
One thing people should be learning from this is that government interventions are the main cause of world economic crisis. If market forces were not being manipulated by the policies of national governments and all its borrowing from the future, there would be no world economic crisis.
Political crisis in a world full of crisis:
Let’s be honest. No President is going to make America great again if the people remain so divided and depraved.
Trump is a pragmatic nationalist. I believe he is sincere and he may be fun to watch, but I don’t believe he will be able to carry out most of his election promises as advertised. Trump is pragmatic, after failure to get his ideas passed through congress and the courts, I think Trump will compromise with the progressive establishment. Trump knows that making great deals means compromise.
Cruz is the best hope for conservative change in America but not before the civil war. The godless left that now control this nation would do everything they could to bring about social unrest and they would succeed.
Rubio’s foreign policy could get us into a war with Russia and other nations.
I do not believe the other republican candidates have much chance being nominated at this point. I frankly think Trump sowed up the nomination in the Jan 14th debate when Cruz comments about NY lost him the Northeast. In any case, a lot of what happens in 2017 depends upon what party controls the Senate.
Clinton, Sanders, Biden, Warren or any of the other Democrats, would insure hundreds of armed insurrections against federal government tyranny. The Oregon standoff is just a feeble foreshadow of the hundreds of insurrections that would follow if the Progressive erosion of the Constitution continues.
I believe that Hillary Clinton will step down from the 2016 presidential race due to “health reasons” and then endorse Joe Biden. In turn, I think Obama will pardon her from all crimes committed during her years as Secretary of State. She will not do any jail time.
I think Europe will see several large terrorist attacks in 2016. One or more will be coordinated to hit a number of cities and nations at the same time. If those attacks happen, I think the nationalist right-wing will take over Europe by 2017. Then Katy-bar-the-door. It looks like civil war.
The U.S. will also see more terrorism in 2016 and Obama will continue to do nothing about the Islamic cause. Keep in mind, that Obama really wants to run the world. I have said for years that Obama plans to run for Secretary General of the UN. International socialism is what really drives all of Obama’s politics. Israel knows about Obama’s UN agenda. They are so concerned that they have already taken the position that they will oppose Obama’s run for Secretary General and they are trying to convince others to do likewise.
Obama needs leaders of the Muslim nations and the underdeveloped world to vote for him to get elected to the UN. Obama appeals to these socialistic leaders like a black Muslim Jimmy Carter giving free handouts from a supercharged golf cart.
I am not saying that Obama will be elected to head the UN in 2017, but I believe he does want that job. There are rumors that Obama might relocate to New York City after he leaves the White House. Obama might even get elected in some future five-year term instead of the one coming up in 2017.
If Obama is elected, and the UN is moved to Europe and later Babylon, Obama could qualify as the Antichrist figure. I tend to think that this Pope is too old to be the False Prophet of Revelation but I guess that is possible. He already is a false prophet that thinks that all major religion leads to the same god. He is correct. The god of world religion is Satan. It is intriguing that Obama and this Pope seem to have the same worldview and both have pushed Agenda 2030 at the UN.
Agenda 2030 is global governance by 2030. Whoever is running the UN in 2030 quite likely will be running the world.
Putin will continue to grow in power and influence in East Europe and the Middle East in 2016. I don’t see Putin starting any major war this year. China will try to stay out of trouble in 2016 as well, but all bets are off if someone gets in a pissing contest with the Chinese in the South China Sea.
North Korea is on the ropes. This could be the year that the Kim dynasty ends. Even China knows that Kim Yong-un is totally insane and so dangerous that he needs to be taken out. China does not want to give Japan more reason to go nuclear.
Iran will continue their nuclear program as they wish in 2016. They will not be testing any atomic bombs this year. With some of the $150 billion they are going to receive for the nuclear deal, Iran will step up support for Shiite revolution and Shiite terrorism. Israel and Hezbollah and Hamas might go at it again. Israel will not attack Iran as long as Obama is President.
I think ISIS will continue to lose ground in Syria in 2016 but they will gain much more of a following in many other places in the world.
If nothing else I said actually happens, the statement that we will continue to see a world full of crisis in 2016 is a no brainer.
