The International Forecaster - As we have seen in our first two explorations of Bill Gates’ role as global health kingpin, the seemingly selfless generosity of the Gates family through their eponymous foundation has in fact greatly increased their own wealth, with Bill Gates’ personal net worth having doubled in the past decade alone. But the takeover of public […]

The International Forecaster - In January of 2010, Bill and Melinda Gates used the World Economic Forum at Davos to announce a staggering $10 billion commitment to research and develop vaccines for the world’s poorest countries, kicking off what he called a “decade of vaccines.” Hailed by the Gates-funded media and applauded by the pharmaceutical companies who stood to reap the […]

The International Forecaster - Who is Bill Gates? A software developer? A businessman? A philanthropist? A global health expert? This question, once merely academic, is becoming a very real question for those who are beginning to realize that Gates’ unimaginable wealth has been used to gain control over every corner of the fields of public health, medical research and […]

The International Forecaster - Sometimes it isn’t all that hard to predict the future. All you have to do is listen to what the social engineers are telling you they’re going to do. For example, when the neocons tell you that we need a “new Pearl Harbor” to justify a transformation of America’s military, you can bet a new […]

April 18th, 2020 | Here Comes the Infodemic!

The International Forecaster - It’s silent. It’s deadly. It’s spreading all around the globe. And, if you’re not careful, it’ll get you next! The viral pandemic? No, silly! The viral infodemic. Haven’t you heard? There’s a tsunami of fake news that’s coming to get you! And if you plebs don’t behave properly then your rulers are just going to have […]

The International Forecaster - Pssst. You. Yeah, you. Are you interested in talking about . . . things? You know, the kind of things that we’re not allowed to talk about anymore? You know, since the . . . uhhh . . . “The Event“? You are? Great. I mean, you might have noticed things are getting a bit […]

March 21st, 2020 | WWIII Has Begun

The International Forecaster - Here’s a question for you: How do you know when you’re at war? When there are troops on the streets? When mass panic hits? When there’s martial law and the public is told to batten down the hatches for a months or years-long siege? When world “leaders” tell their populations that the enemy is to […]

The International Forecaster - I was going to start off this week with a recap of the craziness that unfolded in recent days as full-on pandemic panic set in in the United States, but leave it to Twitter to come up with the pithiest summary: “What a year this last half hour has been.” That’s one way of capturing the […]

The International Forecaster - Last week in this column, as you might recall, I noted that the coronavirus panic had already produced “the worst week in the markets since the financial crisis, including the worst two-day point drop in Dow Jones history.” And I also warned that “the economic effects of this event are going to be very real and very profound.” […]

The International Forecaster - In case you missed this week’s insanity in Iowa (and if you did, good for you!), here is the entire debacle in one ridiculously long run-on sentence: The Iowa Democratic Party thought it would be a really swell idea to set the tone of the Democratic primary season by using their first-in-the-nation, widely touted, closely […]

The International Forecaster - Good morning, students. It’s time for Media Literacy 101. Are you sitting comfortably? Then let’s begin. Have you ever heard of Betteridge’s Law of Headlines? It is a journalistic maxim formulated by Ian Betteridge which holds that “any headline which ends in a question mark can be answered by the word ‘no.’” So let’s apply that rule […]

January 18th, 2020 | When Is A Camera Not A Camera

The International Forecaster - Here’s a riddle for you: When is a camera not a camera? It may not sound as important as The Riddle of the Sphinx, but let me assure you it speaks to the very nature of the reality we live in. And it has a simple answer: When is a camera not a camera? When the […]

The International Forecaster - Last week in these pages we looked at the ways in which the 2020s are likely to be shaped by the billionaire charlatans of the tech world. From the transhumanism being pushed by the Zuckerbergs and Musks and Kurzweils of the world to the weaponization of space (which is being obscured by space tourism and […]

The International Forecaster - Well, that didn’t take long. You’ll recall that it was mere weeks ago that I predicted that the trend of 2020 would be “The End of the Internet (as we’ve known it),” and, sadly, before 2019 was even finished a steady stream of stories flooded the newswires to prove me correct. Morocco has sentenced a […]

December 21st, 2019 | The 2010s: The Decade in Review

The International Forecaster - t’s December of 2019, so you know what that means: We’ve arrived at that special time when newsletter writers start penning their “Decade in Review” articles and pedants vainly contend that “aKtUAlLy, the new decade doesn’t start until 2021!” So let’s ignore the pedants and get to that moment you’ve all been waiting for: The […]

The International Forecaster - I’ve noticed an interesting phenomenon in my 12 years of watching the news headlines for a living: Stories often pop up in mirror image pairs. Take these two recent stories, for example. One from the Department of (in)Justice: “Manhattan U.S. Attorney Announces Arrest Of United States Citizen For Assisting North Korea In Evading Sanctions.” And […]

The International Forecaster - Unlike a lot of other North Atlantic Treaty Organization summits, you might actually have seen some mainstream news coverage of the group’s 70th anniversary meeting that just wrapped up in London this week. But if you did see such coverage, it was probably limited to discussing the theatrics and fireworks surrounding the event rather than […]

The International Forecaster - So you’ve decided to get off your butt and save the planet. About time! what was it that put you over the edge? Was it the impassioned plea to “Act Now” because “Our House is Flooding!” Or was it the finger-wagging “How dare you?” of everyone’s favorite Klimajugend? Or maybe it was  the shocking revelation […]

The International Forecaster - I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the world is on fire right now. From protests and riots to bloodshed and coups d’état, it seems that every corner of the globe is being rocked by an explosion of unrest . . . and no, I’m not talking about the Great Popeyes Chicken Freakouts of 2019. So, in […]

The International Forecaster - After years of teasing, the moment has finally arrived: Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (hereinafter dubbed “MbS” or “the Clown Prince”) has announced the Saudi government’s intention to float a stake in Saudi Aramco. As you no doubt already know (because you watch New World Next Week every week, right?), the world’s largest oil company […]

October 26th, 2019 | The Religion of Government

The International Forecaster - “The President of the United States is in danger of losing the mandate of heaven.” Thus spake Pat Robertson during the recent brouhaha over Syria where the unthinkable notion that the US might actually pull out of a war zone instead of putting more troops in it began to materialize last week. Now, you might be tempted […]

The International Forecaster - Whenever they talk about India and its “inevitable” rise to world economic dominance, establishment hacks like Thomas “Iraq War booster” Friedman always seem compelled to note that the country is “the world’s largest democracy.” They might want to talk to the residents of the now-defunct Jammu & Kashmir before invoking that phrase, but the underlying point seems […]

The International Forecaster - Can you believe it’s late September once again? That magical time of year when an old globalists’ fancy turns to world domination and the world waits with baited breath for the United Nations Secretary-General to deliver his annual “State of the World” address to the UN General Assembly gathered in New York. . . .Oh, […]

The International Forecaster - Five years ago in the pages of this very column I examined “The Ratings Game: Rating agencies as weapons of economic warfare.” In that article, I explained how the major credit ratings agencies—Standard & Poor’s (S&P), Moody’s, and Fitch Ratings—act as adjuncts of the US State Department, targeting Uncle Sam’s enemies with strategic credit downgrades […]
