The Economist says former President Trump presents the world’s “biggest danger” in 2024.
Why it matters: The respected 180-year-old British newspaper said a “second Trump term would be a watershed in a way the first was not” and the “fate of the world” will depend on the ballots of “tens of thousands of voters in just a handful of states” in the 2024 presidential election.
Details: The Economist said in its annual “World Ahead” guide Thursday that another four years of Trump in the White House would be “more damaging” than his previous term.
“China and its friends would rejoice over the evidence that American democracy is dysfunctional” and Beijing “could easily miscalculate over Taiwan, with catastrophic consequences.”
And Russian President Vladimir Putin “would have an incentive to fight on in Ukraine and to pick off former Soviet countries such as Moldova or the Baltic states,” according to the outlet.
Of note: The “greatest threat” Trump poses “is to his own country,” the Economist argues. The “moral authority” of the U.S. would decline “because America will have voted him in while knowing the worst.”
While “pursuing his enemies,” Trump “will wage war on any institution that stands in his way, including the courts and the Department of Justice,” the Economist said.
The big picture: The former president, who faces 91 criminal charges across four separate jurisdictions, has repeatedly made unsubstantiated claims trying to tie the prosecutors and others to Biden.
They ALWAYS tell you in advance:
The Economist always tells you in advance…..Trump is coming back!
So now let’s take a look at what I mean from prior examples….
These are going to blow you mind:
The Economist Predicted EVERYTHING….In 2013?
Ready to go down the rabbit hole?
I’m going to give you photographic proof that is going to blow your mind, and what you do with that is then up to you.
I’m just your humble correspondent!
Let’s talk about The Economist magazine, specifically how they strangely keep predicting the future years and decades in advance!
Before I show you those details, let’s first talk about who OWNS the Economist magazine, because once you know that fact everything else suddenly makes a lot more sense.
So, who owns the Economist?
All the “Elite” power families that run the world.
No, seriously….almost all of them.
I already knew the answer, but I asked ChatGPT so I could show it to you.
Take a look:
The Economist magazine is owned by The Economist Group. The largest shareholders in The Economist Group are Exor, an investment company controlled by the Agnelli family of Italy, which holds about 43% of the shares, and the Cadbury, Rothschild, Schroder, and Layton families, which collectively own about 21%. The remaining shares are held by a group of independent shareholders, including current and former employees of the magazine.
The power players pulling the strings of the puppets on the world stage.
So when they own and publish a magazine, they tend to leak some secrets from time to time.
Actually, leak may not be the right word.
I’ve covered this many times before, but there seems to be some law of the Universe where these Evil Elites seem obligated to tell of the evil they are doing in advance.
I don’t understand it, I don’t know why, but before every big evil event, you can always find these people telling you it was coming in advance.
They often use Hollywood to do it.
We’ve seen countless examples of movies released years and decades in advance that have plots that tell the exact same story of real world events that would not happen for years or decades later.
We’ve seen it with The Simpsons and The X Files.
Too many times to count, but here are just a few:
“The Lone Gunmen” TV Series (2001) – This show, a spin-off of “The X-Files,” featured a pilot episode where the plot involved a government conspiracy to crash a commercial airliner into the World Trade Center to increase arms sales. This episode aired just months before the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
“The Siege” (1998) – This film depicted terrorist attacks in New York City, including a bombing of a bus, and the subsequent military occupation of the city in response to the attacks. The themes of terrorism and the response to it in New York City eerily prefigured the events of 9/11.
“Network” (1976) – This satirical film about a fictional television network predicted several future trends in the world of media, including the blurring of the line between news and entertainment and the rise of outrage as a media strategy, which has become increasingly relevant in the age of social media and 24-hour news cycles.
“Wag the Dog” (1997) – This film, about a political spin doctor and a Hollywood producer who fabricate a war to distract from a presidential scandal, prefigured the way media and public relations tactics are used in politics, especially in the context of the Lewinsky scandal and the subsequent military actions in the Balkans under President Clinton.
“Contagion” (2011) – This film’s depiction of a global pandemic, originating from bats, and the challenges faced by public health officials, eerily mirrors the COVID-19 pandemic that began in 2019. The movie accurately predicted various aspects of pandemic response, including social distancing, the race for a vaccine, and conspiracy theories about the virus’s origin.
“Enemy of the State” (1998) – This movie’s portrayal of widespread government surveillance, including the ability to track individuals through electronic devices, prefigured the real-life revelations about government surveillance programs like those uncovered by Edward Snowden in 2013.
And when they don’t use Hollywood, they LOVE to use their precious Economist magazine.
But don’t take my word for it, let me show you!
This is The Economist Magazine from December 2012 / January 2013 issue:
Perhaps from the point of view of relevance here and now, the topic of the battle between Hamas and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is especially relevant, but the most interesting thing in the annual “prophetic cover of The Economist” 10 years ago is different pic.twitter.com/1s57a83e3i
The gold us on The Economist magazine cover back in 1988 what was coming. A Phoenix bird standing on burning world currencies. The Lebanese lira just failed. If you bought gold/silver, you’re up over 900% (in lira) in the last 6 months. pic.twitter.com/tn1NVbohKE
That’s the infamous Phoenix rising from the ashes of burning fiat US dollars….
They predicted it would happen in 2018 and you have to wonder if Trump winning in 2016 altered that timeline?
Oh by the way, did I mention that cover photo is from 1988?
Yes, 30 years prior to the date they predicted it would happen.
Guess they missed it by a few years, but it’s definitely here now, and I keep telling you the US Dollar is about to implode.
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, so if your eyes glaze over when I talk about the US Dollar and economics, just burn this picture into your mind of the greenbacks burning and going to ZERO, while Bitcoin (or more accurately what looks like XRP and XLM) rise from the ashes.
Now do you get it?
The U.S. Dollar Is Nearly FINISHED, Will You Survive The Coming Crash?
We’ve been one of the FIRST news outlets on this story.
Credit to our friend Bo Polny who first started telling us the U.S. Dollar was in serious trouble a couple years ago…
At the time, it seems inconceivable that the U.S. Dollar would ever be anything other than the world reserve currency.
Now it’s very obvious and we appear to be in the end-stages.
I want you to listen to this short clip from a very smart man, Miles Franklin CEO Andy Schectman.
He explains the very simple roadmap for how you dethrone the U.S. Dollar:
– Weaponize the dollar – Incentive oil producers to dump the dollar – Cause an inflationary crisis at home – Banks collapse – Tell everyone they will be made whole if they sign up for the CBDC
Watch the clip here and tell me if this sounds like EXACTLY what we’re watching play out before our very eyes.
Pretty incredible when you hear him connect all the dots.
THE DOLLAR END GAME: RISE OF A US CBDC
Miles Franklin CEO Andy Schectman lays out his theory on how America’s debt spiral will lead to a complusatory #CBDC.

Bulk-buy retailer Costco starts selling GOLD worth up to £24,500 in its supermarkets – but shoppers are warned to be wary because of violent price fluctuations
Bulk-buy specialist Costco is now offering bars of gold for up to £24,500 a time
Experts warned people could be getting a poor deal after swings in gold market
The price of gold has risen 28 per cent in past 12 months, but it’s a volatile market
It’s not an item likely to be on the weekly shopping lists of many households – but one supermarket giant has started selling gold bullion alongside its everyday groceries.
Bulk-buy specialist Costco, more normally known for its ‘pile-’em-high, sell-’em-cheap’ philosophy, is now offering bars of the precious metal for up to £24,500 a time.
But experts last night warned shoppers they could be getting a poor deal, particularly after violent swings in the gold market this year.
While the company’s mark-up on gold is up to seven per cent on the market rate, it is also selling silver bars at a whopping 28 per cent premium.
Many investors have been turning to what they see as the security of gold this year, amid huge uncertainties in the world economy caused by Covid-19, international tensions and political discord in America.
But while the price of gold has risen by 28 per cent in the past 12 months to almost $1,900 (£1,469) an ounce, it is a volatile market, declining by more than six per cent in the past two months alone.
On September 24, Costco’s 100g bar was on sale for £4,939.99, when the market price for that much gold was £4,619.70 – equal to a seven per cent mark-up in store.
Now, take this and remember what Andy Schectman just told us….
Have you seen this?
Gold and Silver: “No one wants to sell at these make believe prices”
I’ve been telling you for a long time now that Gold and Silver are vastly undervalued.
I’m not a financial advisor and I can’t tell you what to do, but I can look at historical data and I can easily see that the current price of Gold and Silver makes no sense unless….it’s being manipulated.
Now who would want to do that?
And the more important question: will it go on forever, or do the manipulators eventually release the stretched rubber band and ride an explosion up?
I’ve you’ve been paying attention in life, you know the answer.
You know these crooks on Wall Street manipulate things down, then they load their boats, then they manipulate them up into a bubble.
Where are we in that process right now for commodities like Gold and Silver?
Right exactly where I placed that star up above.
= You Are Here
The Big Boys are loading their boats.
But that’s not just my opinion.
I’m a nobody.
Listen to Andy Schectman who is an expert on these things and he lays it out PERFECTLY in two minutes.
Here’s my rough paraphrase:
“A concerted effort by the very powerful to use the suppression of commodities (gold, silver, but also a long list of all other commodities)…these countries are not complaining about suppressed low prices yet because they’re accumulating! But once it becomes obvious that the availability of these commodities is very scarce and no one wants to sell at these “make believe prices” then the public says “OMG, what have we been missing?” And maybe that all happens in concert with a breakdown of the banking system, then the public says “give it to me now” and that’s when you’ll see the circuit breakers be put into affect. But at that point it’s too late.”
It’s so much better to listen to him explain it in his own words.
It’s just 2 minutes long.
Watch here (as presented by my friend the Digital Asset Investor):
They are LOADING THEIR BOATS with as much Gold and Silver as they can find and they’re laughing all the way to the bank because they’re buying at what Andy says are “make believe prices”.
After the Great Financial Crash of 2008, I made a decision.
From that point forward, I would simply do what the Big Boys were doing.
I would simply watch what they’re doing and copy it.
Oh, and if they had Jim Cramer telling people the OPPOSITE (i.e. Cramer says Gold is a loser, but the Central Banks are buying with both fists) that was usually the perfect confirmation I needed.
So that’s been my strategy since 2008 and it’s worked very well for me.
Here’s Why Banks Are Buying Up All of the Gold
I’ve got Jordan Peterson and Peter Schiff in a fascinating conversation about the Value of Gold.
And it’s not just some academic debate.
This could very soon be one of the most important things in your world when the U.S. Dollar crashes and gets its value cut in half….or worse.
These guys know what they’re talking about and this short 8 minute clip is definitely worth your time to watch.
I always say this: don’t listen to what the “Elites” tell you….watch what they are DOING.
And what are they doing?
Stacking gold and silver.
As much as they can get their hands on.
Look, I hope I’m wrong but I think we’re in for a massive event that is going to destroy bank accounts and destroy the U.S. Dollar.
So what happens to YOU when that happens?
Watch this and then scroll down for how I can help you stay safe right now….
For those who can’t listen, here’s the transcript (and then scroll down for what YOU can do right now! That’s the most important thing!):
One of the reasons that people are so arrogant particularly in America that the dollar status is not in jeopardy and so that we can keep on running these huge deficits we can create keep on creating inflation and the world’s got no choice right but to stick with the dollar because are they going to go to the euro are they going to go to the Yen you know the pound
I mean they’re winning B I agree all of those currencies also have problems and so do you really want to switch from one flawed fiat currency to another even if those other Fiat currencies may be less flawed than the dollar right
do you really want to make that shift I don’t think that that’s what’s going to happen what everybody is missing is that there is an alternative to the dollar that doesn’t involve another fiat currency and that’s gold
that is real money everybody forgets that for thousands of years gold was money it was money because it worked now over the course of time uh we had paper currencies that would rise and fall I mean hundreds of years ago they were paper currencies that are now worthless and you don’t even know their names
you know they come and go but gold has has stayed you know gold works as money and so I think what these central banks are going to do is as they get out of dollars they will just increase their Holdings of gold gold will be the monetary anchor gold will be the reserve monetary asset just the way it was before the dollar it wasn’t the British pound
I mean the British pound was a dominant currency but gold was what everybody owned the British back to pounds do you see any do you see any evidence that some of these alternate currencies are starting to back their currency claims with gold oh yeah you can what’s happening on the central banks are now buying more gold than they’ve bought in in in decades
especially a lot of the uh you know the Emerging Market countries not even maybe so much the United States isn’t buying any gold and maybe you know some of the more mature uh countries but a lot of other countries that had predominantly held dollars and then to a lower degree Euros or Yen or pounds these countries are increasingly buying gold that’s why gold is at a record high
I mean Gold’s around two thousand dollars an ounce but in terms of just about every other currency on the planet gold has been hitting all-time record highs uh and again that’s not really gold going up that’s all these Fiat currencies going down but what are the reasons that countries would want gold as opposed to the dollar is the US government doesn’t have any control over it
you know gold is an asset that’s not also somebody else’s liability and nobody could create it you have to mine it no one country you know has the advantage so you know why would you want to take away uh that that privilege that the United States has and just bestow it on somebody else who is going to abuse it the same way
I mean the United States abused that privilege that we had and we we we exported all this inflation to the world we took advantage of the this the position that we were in uh so why would you want to put another nation in in a position to similarly take advantage of the world it’s much better to go back to to honest money and again
even when we were on Bretton Woods before you know 1971 and we were on the dollar standard it was because the dollar was backed by gold again if you held dollars you held gold that’s where the saying came from the dollar is as good as gold in fact the legal definition of a dollar is a is a weight of gold that’s what a dollar is dollars are gold the the the paper currency that circulated Federal Reserve notes are not dollars they are notes of the Federal Reserve
initially the those Federal Reserve notes were payable in dollars the dollars were the gold that the Federal Reserve notes paid because if you think about what a note is a note is a promise to pay something a Federal Reserve Note is supposed to pay something well what did it pay it paid gold it paid dollars today Federal Reserve notes pay nothing their ious nothing the Federal Reserve is not obligated to give you anything I mean if you have a ten dollar bill okay so people people might object and they and they have
that well gold is just another arbitrary standard of value it has some intrinsic worth it’s useful for jewelry it’s useful for certain industrial applications but it’s just another psychologically valuable currency without any intrinsic value and so it shouldn’t be a repository of value in principle that’s any more stable than let’s say a well-managed or even a badly managed fiat currency and so what do you what do you why is it that gold has proved itself let’s say over centuries or Millennia as a storehouse of value what is it about gold intrinsically let’s say that seems to have given it that edge the idea that gold doesn’t have any intrinsic value is just pure nonsense
it’s obviously politicians have a vested interest in in trying to diminish gold as a monetary alternative to the Fiat system and even now you have a lot out of cryptocurrency enthusiasts who say the same thing well you know gold has no value because they want to justify something like Bitcoin which also has no value and say well gold worked as money and it has no value
so so Bitcoin could work well it’s not true that gold has no value gold is the most valuable the most useful metal on the periodic table gold became money because it was such a valuable commodity but gold has a lot of properties that make it uniquely qualified to be money more so than than other Commodities that’s why gold was so successful over the centuries as money because people preferred to use it as money it wasn’t governments that decided gold is going to be money the people decided that gold was going to be money and once the people decided that gold was going to be money if you were a king you know well you would tax people in Gold because if you wanted to pay your soldiers to protect you your soldiers wanted gold right so it was the money created in the free market and it beat out all other forms of money because gold you know a gold coin uh all they’re all all the same
you could melt gold down and you can make it into coins uh it’s fungible it’s portable it’s divisible but the other aspect of goal that is the key you can save gold because if I have an ounce of gold in 100 years in a thousand years it’s exactly the same it doesn’t lose any of its properties and in fact even if I take my gold and I make you know I make a ring out of it or I I use it to make a watch right
you can melt this ring down and you get your gold back and it’s exactly the way it was you could do something else with it there’s really no other metal you can keep using it over and over and over again I mean they fill teeth with gold if you find somebody buried in the ground you know you could take their fillings and you know the Gold’s still there you know there treasure ships from the 1400s 1500s they sink if they recover the wreckage the only thing that’s still there is the goal it’s an it looks exactly the way it looked when the sink when the ship sank 500 years ago so from a point of savings because money has to satisfy three primary conditions two of them are a unit of account an immediate exchange but the third one is the store value and that’s important
because it’s also makes it possible to do loans that I can borrow money you can lend money and you can be repaid and you know that the money that you’re going to get repaid is going to retain its value and so that’s something that gold that gold does better than than other metals but
the value of gold even if I’m not using my gold today as a metal let’s say I have gold stored in a safe and you say well you know you’re not using it for anything that’s true but I’m preserving the future use of that gold somebody in the future is going to need that gold and so I’m storing it right now
because you know there are more uses for gold that are discovered all the time because of its very unique properties I’m sure in a hundred years or a thousand years there will be more uses for gold than there are now
So, what can YOU do to protect yourself?
To protect your family?
To stay safe?
Simple: you need to get some #Gold or #Silver in your own possession.
It’s called “physical” gold and silver.
Not paper traded garbage on the stock exchanges that isn’t backed by anything.
Don’t touch that stuff.
I have two special hook-ups for you.
Both involve PHYSICAL gold and silver.
Because if you do NOTHING else, make sure you own “physical” gold and silver, not paper contracts.
The paper contracts (like stock ticker SLV and GLD) could very well go POOF one day and disappear or go to zero, because they’re not actually backed by the gold and silver they claim to represent.
It’s a massive game of musical chairs out there and when the music stops (and I think it will stop soon…) people who only own paper might find themselves owning something not worth the paper it’s literally written on.
And I know you’ll never forget it if I give you this GIF so….Let’s Get Physical:
Now…WHERE do you get physical gold and silver and how do you know it’s real and safe?
And that you’re getting the best price?
Oh, and how about personal one-on-one real customer service?
You know, like you were some Big Wig millionaire at Goldman Sachs who could just call their personal banker and get help?
That’s what I’m about to tell you.
I have two killer connections for you…
The first is for purchasing gold and silver bullion.
That means bulk bars.
That’s the cheapest and most economical way to do it, to stretch your dollar into as much gold and silver as possible.
The website is called WLT Precious Metals and when you see my logo in the top left-hand corner, you’ll know you’re in the right place.
You’ll get a personal phone call with Ira Bershatsky (or someone on his team) and they will work with you free of charge for as long as needed to answer any questions you have and get you taken care of.
How about that!
You don’t see that much anymore, but Ira and his team pride themselves on good old-fashioned real customers service:
No sales pitch, just real, actual help.
And the best prices you will find.
Here’s the only disclaimer I will give you: because they do pride themselves on dedicated service, it might take a few days before you get a phone call back. Just be patient.
