According to Wikipedia, since January of last year, when I debuted my war forecasts at the Weiss Wealth Summit showing that political turmoil was set to start rising substantially:
201 terrorist attacks have been staged worldwide.
In the Middle East, there are now eight countries officially at war, involving 163 different militias, separatist and anarchic groups.
In the Congo, Mali, Nigeria, Somalia, and the Sudan — there are now 24 countries and 141 different groups involved in wars.
In Europe, there are now eight countries involved in official wars involving 65 different groups of militias, guerrillas and separatists.
In the Americas, war is taking root as well, where over five different Latin American countries are experiencing war-like conditions involving more than 25 separatist groups.
All told, there are now a near record high of 60 countries involved in war, involving 512 militias and separatist groups.
Sadly, it’s going to get worse, as my research shows that the world is still on the cusp of a ramping up of the war cycles and a very dramatic increase in geo-political conflict and social unrest that will not peak until the year 2020.
What are the war cycles? They are research I have conducted on over 14,000 wars spanning nearly 5,000 years of history.
They are crunched by my computer models that run a special type of statistical analysis and over 3 billion different studies to identify the periods in time when war and geo-political conflict, domestic or international, is most likely to break out.
I’ll show you the charts again here. They are important to keep in front of you. In this chart, you can see the high-probability 8.8-year war cycle (red line) and how it is set to surge and doesn’t peak until the year 2020.
You can see the incidences of war around the world (black line) over the past have closely tracked the cycle.
In this next chart of the 17.71-year war cycle, you can see the same. This fractal of the war cycle lifted off at the beginning of 2013 and rises into 2019.
And then there’s the granddaddy of all war cycles, the 53.5-year cycle — the one that worries me the most and that tracks major international-type wars.
It also started ramping up last year, and points sharply higher into the year 2020.
Warning: If you think these war cycles are
merely pointing to terrorism and unrest in areas
of the world that will not affect you, think again.
The war cycles are much broader in scope than that. Especially the granddaddy 53.5-year cycle.
They can, and will, involve and affect just about everything and every part of the world.
They can come in various forms, or many different forms at the same time.
They can involve not just isolated terrorist events or localized protests like we are seeing in Bangkok right now, but just about every kind of conflict you can imagine:
From currency wars between nations … to trade wars.
From revolutions and rebellions … to mass societal upheaval and the overthrow of governments.
From authoritarianism … to fascism.
From cyber espionage … to outright total loss of liberty.
From negatively impacting the wealth and health of others in distant lands …
To potentially destroying your own health and wealth in your homeland.
The thing is, the war cycles and social unrest, domestically or internationally, is contagious. Such is the nature of mass human behavior.
And, yes, war-like conditions, rebellions and revolts are coming to America.
Riots in the streets. Protests. Tax rebellions.
Look at Europe, where social unrest is rising dramatically higher. According to a report from the International Labor Organization, the risk of social unrest “is highest among the EU-27 countries” and has increased from 34 percent of the population in 2006-07 to 46 percent in 2011-2012.”
Not surprising, considering the brain-dead steps Europe’s leaders continue to take to try and fulfill their self-interest by confiscating bank depositor money … implement immigration controls (the very thing that the EU was supposed to help eliminate) … and embrace the IMF’s even more brain-dead proposal to implement a 10 percent wealth tax on everyone.
Thing is, all this is coming to our own streets, right here in America.
Why? Because at the very foundation of all of this is the busted economies and governments of the West, of Europe and of the United States.
And because the leaders of the West, Europe and the United States are destined to repeat the mistakes of the past.
Instead of cutting taxes, they are raising them.
Instead of reducing regulatory burdens, they are increasing them.
Instead of policies that encourage free markets, they are chronically interfering and manipulating the markets.
Instead of reinforcing “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,” they are invading your privacy, censoring the media like never before, preparing to tax you even more, and even preparing to confiscate and financially repress your wealth.
As I have said before, I pray and hope it won’t be as bad as I am describing. But something tells me that the months and years ahead could well be the most turbulent times we’ve seen since at least World War II.
And I am not going to sit idly by.
I have already taken steps to protect my privacy. I have moved my email and cloud storage offshore to secure servers in Switzerland.
I am already positioning my finances to protect and grow my wealth during the turbulent times ahead. In ways that most investors wouldn’t even think of.
I am preparing to buy gold, and lots of it, and store it offshore.
I am preparing to buy silver, and also store it offshore. Platinum and palladium as well.
I am researching the best banks to hold my cash, custodial banks only, and most likely offshore as well.
I am also going to back up the truck — when the time is right — to load up on shares in select multinational and natural-resource companies, because, yes, stocks can do extremely well in times of war, much like the safe haven that gold is.
I’ll take physical possession of my stock certificates where possible, and stash them away in my vault. That way, I won’t have to worry if a broker goes belly up, or Washington or anyone else decides to eavesdrop on my account.
You need to take the same steps. I’m dead serious about it.
What about Obama’s attempt to roll back some of the spying that’s going on? The changes he unveiled Friday fall far short of the suggestions made by his own review panel, which called for stripping the National Security Agency (NSA) of its power to collect phone records en masse.
Moreover, the changes Obama announced need congressional approval, which is not likely to happen, given Congress’ general support of the NSA.
Bottom line: The spying will still go on.
All of this, and more, will soon be released in a very special privacy report I am putting together now.
Premium subscribers to my publications will receive the report free of charge.
Stay safe and best wishes,
