Deagel.com’s ‘Forecast 2025’ Predicts Dramatic Population Changes For Western Nations

Editor’s Note: The geopolitical and economic forecasting found on the mysterious Deagel.com website has been discussed by alternative news media for close to a decade. In September the site issued an updated forecast based on the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic. The following is Deagel.com’s recently revised disclaimer of its Forecast 2025.

TruNews provides a thoughtful overview of Deagel.com and the data therein on its January 28 program.

September 25, 2021

In 2014 we published a disclaimer about the forecast. In six years the scenario has changed dramatically. This new disclaimer is meant to single out the situation from 2020 onwards. Talking about the United States and the European Union as separated entities no longer makes sense. Both are the Western block, keep printing money and will share the same fate. 

After COVID we can draw two major conclusions:

  1. The Western world success model has been built over societies with no resilience that can barely withstand any hardship, even a low intensity one. It was assumed but we got the full confirmation beyond any doubt. 
  2. The COVID crisis will be used to extend the life of this dying economic system through the so called Great Reset.

Biden’s Presidency Will Be A Catalyst For Secession – And Perhaps Civil War

Over the past few months I have written a handful of articles which discussed what would probably happen if Joe Biden actually entered the White House and launched his administration. My initial belief was that Trump would refuse to concede and that this would be a trigger for national chaos blamed on conservatives, but I have also noted that Biden’s entry is almost just as disruptive, as it sends a signal to the political left that it is “open season” on anyone that disagrees with their ideology.

Of course, conservatives are not going to simply sit still and be purged and abused, they are going to strike back, and this sets the stage for a number of events and outcomes, some of which are completely unpredictable, even for establishment globalists.

Italy’s Government on Verge of Collapse after Renzi’s Party Quits

(Bloomberg) — Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte is struggling to hold onto power after a junior partner in his coalition pulled out, robbing him of his majority in parliament.

Former Premier Matteo Renzi said Wednesday night that ministers from his Italy Alive party would quit the cabinet, attacking Conte for failing to do enough to tackle the country’s problems. Though the party is tiny, Conte relied on it to maintain his majority. Conte may seek a confidence vote in Parliament next week, newspapers including la Repubblica reported.

Renzi’s decision sparks a government crisis which could last days or even weeks, and has no clear solution in sight. Before making any other moves, Conte will have to formally accept the resignations of Renzi’s two ministers.

How U.S. Government Paid-Off Its Super-Rich in Order to Pass Its Coronavirus-Relief Laws

Eric Zuesse

December 18, 2020

On December 14th, two excellent news-reports were belatedly published about some of the massive corruption that was behind the initial U.S. federal coronavirus-relief law, the CARES Act, and about U.S. Senators of both Parties now intending to include such corruption in the next one. (NOTE: This present news-report may be viewed as a confirmation, and a further explanation, of what I was predicting in my article on April 22nd, “Why Post-Coronavirus America Will Have Massive Poverty”. What that was predicting is being confirmed in the two recent news-reports that are cited here.)

Regarding the CARES Act, J. Robert Downen headlined in the Houston Chronicle on December 14th, “Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church got $4.4 million in federal PPP loans”, and he reported that “Lakewood received a $4.4 million loan through the Paycheck Protection Program, a part of the federal CARES Act that provided loans to pay employee wages or for other basic operational costs such as utilities. The program marked the first time federal lawmakers allowed for direct financial assistance to houses of worship. … More than 1,000 religious groups in Texas received hundreds of millions of dollars to retain a combined 59,000 jobs, the Chronicle reported in July.”

At around the start of the coronavirus-epidemic, the Texas state government had announced, on 24 January 2020, that “Our workforce continues to grow and is now 14,188,100 Texans strong”, and this means that the CARES Act’s breaking-of-precedent (“the first time federal lawmakers allowed for direct financial assistance to houses of worship”) was helping to retain employment for one two-hundred-and-fortieth of employed Texans, and therefore it couldn’t even possibly have produced any significant impact upon the rate of unemployment in Texas, but only improved the re-election chances of public officials in Texas, by its purchasing from Texas’s preachers (who have lots of political clout in that state) a more favorable attitude toward those incumbent governmental office-holders, who had provided this largesse, upon their special interest.

Billions for corporations, $600 for peasants

Investment Watch Blog
December 20, 2020

With the latest, $900 billion covid-stimulus deal now done (which unless the Democrats win the Georgia Senate runoffs in 2 weeks will be the final covid stimulus bill according to Goldman), attention turns to what’s actually in it.

First: the good news – the bill will include a fresh round of benefits for small businesses as well as the usual one-time pittance for peasants, amounting to a $600 check. Here are the key components:

  • Direct payments of $600 to most Americans ($600 per adult and $600 per child); the amounts decrease for individuals with more than $75,000 in income and $150,000 for couples.
  • $300-per-week in enhanced unemployment benefits through March. Expiring programs for gig workers and the long-term unemployed also would continue.
  • $284 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program that provides grants forgivable loans to small businesses, arguably the most successful and also most abused program of the CARES act. This represents the bulk of the $325 billion the bill puts toward small businesses

Martin Armstrong: The Reset is Communism

Greg Hunter
USA Watchdog
(November 14, 2020)

Legendary financial and geopolitical cycle analyst Martin Armstrong said his computers picked up massive fraud coming in the 2020 Election years ago.  Armstrong explains, “The computer doesn’t ask my opinion, or anybody else’s, it just goes on the numbers from the economic data.  It’s never been wrong.  Besides 2016 (predicted Trump win) and for this one, it said it would be the most corrupt election in American history.  I published this out at least two years ago.  People have to understand, this isn’t my opinion.  This has gone far beyond anything I would have anticipated.  Every election you have had dead people voting.  That’s pretty standard, and that’s not something new. . . . This is just off the charts.  This is the Left, and they are so desperate to take over the United States.”

If the cheating is “off the charts,” then how bad was it in terms of fraudulent votes, including votes taken from President Trump and votes given to Joe Biden?  Armstrong contends, “The cheating is in the millions, definitely millions, and perhaps as much as 38 million.  This is some of the information I am getting from behind the curtain.”

Ron Paul Warns Financial Martial Law Imminent

“History has shown us that when the government needs to save itself it won’t hesitate to STEAL your money.”

Project Clarity
(August 10, 2016)

The following video ‘interview’ of former Congressman Dr. Ron Paul is a scripted presentation that is admittedly a bit stilted. Nevertheless, one needn’t look very far at national and world financial news to conclude the information and analysis are very real. For example, ‘bail in’ documents exist as laws in many Western nations, including Canada and the United States.

This may all appear Cassandra-like at first glance. Yet real economic indicators suggest an imminent economic crisis as central banks increasingly prop up the so-called ‘free markets’ through bond and now even by purchases of corporate debt and stock. At the same time, international events suggest that the US dollar’s days as the preeminent world reserve currency are numbered; on October 1 the Chinese Renminbi will be formally recognized as a foreign exchange reserve by the International Monetary Fund alongside the dollar and euro.

Reports and imagery from the ongoing economic collapse in Venezuela seem remote, yet the economic conditions for such a breakdown in Europe and the US are indeed very real. Of note is a special ‘Emergency Podcast‘ released September 16 by financial analysts Andrew Hoffman and Bix Weir lays out more recent developments in even greater detail.-JFT

The ‘Web Bot’ – Collective Human Consciousness As Predictor of Future Events

At the risk of climbing out on a limb MHB is bringing to readers’ attention a rather unusual project devised by an individual who goes by the YouTube handle ‘Clif High.’ He’s a former computer programmer who has developed a system, Asymmetric Linguistic halfpasthumanTrends Analysis (ALTA), which collects massive amounts of data from the World Wide Web and algorhythmically processes the information to detect and analyze linguistic patterns from which future social, economic, and environmental events and conditions may be foreseen.

Think of the pre-cogs in Minority Report, only on a much grander scale tapping in to every human being’s inherent psychic ability to anticipate future events. This collective human consciousness is exhibited through the choice of language in news reports, comments on blogs, and elsewhere throughout the internet.

Anticipating Brexit Tumult, Online Brokerage Boosts Margin Requirements

UK referendum may create “extreme volatility and/or unusually large moves in market prices”

In one indication of how uncertain market participants are toward the June 23 vote on whether Britain will leave the European Union, a major US-based retail securities broker is increasing margins for customers trading certain currency and futures contract-products, a MHB reader reports. 

oh-shitIn an email to customers, titled, “Notice of UK Referendum (‘Brexit’)”, sent shortly after the June 22 market close, the Plantation Florida-based TradeStation informed clients it will “be increasing your margin requirements effective the morning of June 23 through the close of business on June 24.”

Those who operate “on margin” borrow money from a broker to supplement securities transactions and are required to meet certain minimal funding thresholds on such accounts.

Epocalypse Now: The Economic Apocalypse is Here

Submitted by David Haggith
The Great Recession

When I predicted the economic apocalypse would begin for the US this month, I said the stock market would rise euphorically after the Fed raised its interest target. Rise it did. Steeply, too. I also said it would fall shortly after. Fall it did. Quickly, too. Now I’m saying the Epocalypse is here.

Just as I stated that “the rate at which the market goes up now is a measurement of pure euphoria,” by the same token, how quickly that euphoria falls off indicates just how far down the downside is. If you have ever floated in the ocean and felt yourself unexpectedly drop way down with the water, you know that means a huge wave is coming up right behind you.

“Particularly watch out,” I warned, “if the euphoria cools quickly because, after more than a year of concern over what would happen when stimulus ended, there is a lot of relief the bulls would like to celebrate. If the euphoria cools quickly, it’s likely to mean things are ready to go down hard and fast.”
