2023 is concluding and a new year beginning. Everyone is making past year reflections and new years predictions. Personally, I don't think that we will see a lot of major differences in 2024 like we saw in 2020, at least not in our sphere of the world. The events that happened four years and the Long March building up to it for 30+ years have become so ingrained in Western psychology that expecting wholesale changes in our sociopolitical trajectory is not likely to happen. As we were saying back in 2020-21, what we experienced was a Color Revolution, not some temporary interruption in our normal routines like previous crises were. The Color Revolution was the culmination of the first phase of the hostile takeover and phase two, the Great Reset, is well underway.
In domestic and foreign affairs, the trajectory that we seem to following in 2024 therefore looks much like 2022 and 2023. In domestic issues, the biggest non-issue, the Election, is going to be presented as the most critical issue. The outcome of the Elections---which probably has already been decided---isn't the important thing. The purpose of holding them at all is to give the public the illusion that whatever the Oligarchy plans to do in 2025 and beyond has a 'popular mandate.' We will probably see some political violence: in fact, some of it is starting already and being carried out on both sides. There have been several more incidents recently of Leftist harassment of Republican politicians and Right-Wing harassment of Democrat operatives. This is part of the Strategy of Tension employed to keep the nation divided and fearful, the final purpose being to impose a strongman who will 'restore order.'
It could very well happen in 2024 that the Oligarchs play this card. Voter dissatisfaction both with the Junta and the President-in-Exile is very high; and the tensions have been exacerbated by extreme actions and rhetoric on both sides. It's not clear at this point whether or not the Oligarchy will insert a strongman into this year's race to 'unify the country,' but the possibility exists. At this point, there isn't such a unifying figure---at least that we know of.
In any event, other than the possible insertion of a candidate, I don't forsee any major 2020-level disruptions domestically. The Great Reset forces are going to go on; instituting many of the changes they hope to put into full effect after the next year. We'll see more of what we saw in 2023: gradual phasing-in of Technofascist control over the currency, erosion of civil liberties, further concentrations of wealth, etc.
There are many on the political Right who are clinging desperately to some great turnaround in our direction: but the only turning around going on is the Republicans moving further and further Left. The Republicans are a lot closer to imploding than they are of winning, despite all of the grandstanding and cheerleading going on inside of their Media echo-chambers. All of the loose talk, too, on Social Media of a 'Civil War 2.0' is just as much of a fantasy. The Right has no leadership, no organization, no plan or purpose---not to mention neither the courage nor the character---to do anything like that.
Foreign Policy is unlikely to change in substance much since both Parties are wholly aligned with the Deep State's objectives in the world: maintaining Beltway hegemony at all hazards. The situation abroad might change rather radically, however.
Ukraine: is on the verge of complete collapse. There's really nothing holding that Regime together any more---and really never was, outside of foreign support. However, Ukraine could still spiral into dangerous escalation. Our Deep State is obsessed with Ukraine because it seems to have become symbolic of what the pundits call our national resolve. 'National Resolve' is the political version of 'street cred' in the ghettoes and hoods of American Trash Culture, but it is also our defining political philosophy these days.
Despite Ukraine's complete irrelevance to any issues facing American society, both wings of the American Deep State are calling for greater and greater involvement. The general consensus among the Russian leadership currently is that the US is already involved in the war in everything but name. Outside of the mentally lethargic American public, the Junta hasn't fooled anybody as to what they were doing; and the only 'Conservative' response has been to stop being weenies and go kick some Russian butt. What they are going to kick with, no one knows: but it makes a good political talking point.
The Junta's position itself is unpredictable: the Deep State actually seems flummoxed on what to do about Ukraine. All of their 'experts' and paid flatterers greatly overestimated our own capabilities and vastly underestimated Russia. Some seem willing to negotiate some face-saving withdrawal---but Russia clearly has the upper hand and isn't going to make any concessions just to save Biden's electoral chances. Others want direct military involvement which would mean a showdown with Russia which we don't have the ability to back up. Ever since the Deep State's hostile takeover of Ukraine in 2014, the Oligarchs have consistently mistaken Russian patience for weakness, at the cost of many lives and the squandering of our national resources.
Palestine: as in Ukraine, the 'experts' proved wrong again in Palestine. The Left-Wing Technofascist Zionist Regime---praised as a model state by the WEF and a model of Western military superiority by our 'defense analysts'--- is 90 days into a Civil War which is protracting in the face of stubborn resistance. Also like Ukraine, the Israeli Military is showing the effects of relying on the Pentagon: while they have managed to kill a lot of civilians, their military gains have been nothing to brag about. The Corporate Media here dubbed the Palestinian Revolt "Israel's 9/11" and as we saw with Bush's War on Terror, the reaction has cost more lives and resources than the initial attacks did, to no benefit.
The Zionists have been trying desperately to goad Iran into the conflict, in the hope that the US Deep State will respond militarily and bail them out. So far, Iran hasn't taken the bait. Nonetheless, this is posing a major problem for the NWO crowd, as the Middle East is rapidly slipping from their intended grasp. Egypt, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Iran are all eligible next year for BRICS membership and all are major players in the region.
Argentina: a Color Revolution in Argentina which installed an outright Deep-State backed nutjob in power who has already nullified Argentina's inclusion into the BRICS economic bloc, effectively banned protests, and is on track to tie Argentina into utter dependency on the Corporate Oligarchy. Javier Milei may cause a lot of problems in the region, to be sure. The worrisome thing is that he's become something of a role model for our new, evolved Conservative movement.
Bear in mind that Zelensky, Netanyahu, and Milei are the sorts of leaders that the WEF Oligarchs and their flying monkeys in the Neocon Right think that the bottom 80% of the world's population deserves. We can't, for this reason, entirely rule out the possibility that the Oligarchy may a substitute a nominally Right-Wing strongman for the Biden/Harris Junta. They did this with the Bush Machine in 2000, and the Neocons do have representation on the WEF Board of Trustees. The important thing here is not to fall for any fake 'populist' who might surface during the 2024 Elections.
Taiwan: This is going to be the first foreign policy distraction of next year since the Taiwanese Elections are coming up next month. The Beltway Deep State has been interfering to considerable extent in these proceedings; as well as stirring up problems in the South China Sea and with North Korea. Again, however, it comes down to the same problem. The 'China experts' have again flopped: the Deep State is in no position to impose its will on China---in fact, China has grown more economically powerful and politically stable despite sabotage from the West.
These foreign affairs are going to be important in 2024 for two reasons: the first is that Oligarchy has depended upon Western Military abilities to defend and expand its interests; the second is that the Military has become something of a popular symbol of the last shred of actual American strength. This is one reason why the Controlled Opposition has been playing up the "Biden's weakened military" trope so strongly even though our military decline started largely under Republican leadership.
We've really reached a point where our Foreign Policy has declined to the level of our domestic policy. The sociopolitical and moral bankruptcy of our system has become apparent in 2023 because of the obvious and egregious failures of our foreign policy alongside the complete inability to solve any of these problems.
Alongside the failures abroad, the failures at home have also become more glaring. The Junta has been obliged to shift resources away from our own infrastructure to support mercenary military activities elsewhere for no other reason than to uphold 'American prestige' and transfer wealth into the pockets of vested interests. The Right isn't offering any actual solutions except to double-down on the same policies.
Thus, our major prediction for 2024 is that---not unlike 2023---it will be characterized by distraction and political in-fighting, although probably to a more elevated degree. The level of decline and degeneration in our culture is something that the great masses of the American public are still utterly oblivious to and in hopeless denial about. That too is likely not to change. For the rest of us, 2024 should be a year of expanding our networks and preparing for greater independence and resistance.
