Is a Massive Economic Downturn Coming?

The United States has seen its fair share of economic ups and downs throughout its history.



The United States has seen its fair share of economic ups and downs throughout its history. From the Great Depression of the 1930s to the Great Recession of 2008, economic downturns have had a significant impact on the country’s financial well-being. So, is the U.S. due for another major economic downturn? Let’s take a closer look at the historical data.

First, it’s essential to understand that the U.S. economy is cyclical. It goes through periods of growth and contraction, often driven by factors such as inflation, interest rates, and government policy. While the severity and duration of these cycles can vary, there is a pattern to their occurrence. Economic downturns tend to happen every 8-10 years, with some lasting longer than others.

The most recent major economic downturn in the United States was the Great Recession, which officially began in December 2007 and lasted until June 2009. During this period, the U.S. economy experienced a significant decline in economic activity, including a sharp drop in employment, a decline in consumer spending, and a contraction of credit. The Great Recession was caused in large part by a housing market bubble, as well as risky lending practices by financial institutions.

Since the end of the Great Recession, the U.S. economy has experienced a period of sustained growth. The unemployment rate has fallen to historic lows, and the stock market has reached record highs. However, there are indications that the current economic expansion may be reaching its limits.

One indicator of a possible economic downturn is the yield curve. The yield curve is a graph that plots the interest rates of U.S. Treasury bonds of different maturities. Typically, longer-term bonds have higher interest rates than shorter-term bonds. When the yield curve inverts, which means that the interest rates on shorter-term bonds are higher than those on longer-term bonds, it’s often seen as a warning sign of an impending recession.

The yield curve inverted briefly in 2019, and while it has since reverted to its typical pattern, some economists see this as a sign that the U.S. economy could be due for a downturn soon.

Another factor that could contribute to a possible economic downturn is rising levels of debt. The U.S. government has been running large budget deficits for several years, and the national debt has reached historic highs. Additionally, many Americans are carrying significant amounts of personal debt, including credit card debt and student loans. If a large number of people begin defaulting on their debts, it could have a ripple effect throughout the economy.

There are also concerns about global economic conditions, including trade tensions between the U.S. and China and uncertainty surrounding Brexit. These factors could potentially destabilize the global economy, leading to a downturn in the U.S. as well.

While there are certainly indications that the U.S. could be due for another major economic downturn, it’s important to remember that predicting the future is always uncertain. Economic cycles can be unpredictable, and there are many factors that can influence their occurrence and severity. That said, it’s always wise to be prepared for the possibility of an economic downturn, whether through building up savings, paying down debt, or investing in diversified assets.

In conclusion, the historical data suggests that the U.S. is likely due for another major economic downturn at some point in the future. While the timing and severity of such a downturn are uncertain, there are signs that it could happen sooner rather than later. As always, it’s important to be aware of the risks and take steps to prepare for the possibility of a downturn, both at the individual and policy levels.

How to prepare for a great recession:

A recession is a period of significant economic decline that typically lasts for several months to a few years. During a recession, many people may experience job loss, financial instability, and difficulty making ends meet. It is important to be prepared for a recession, whether you are an individual, a business owner, or an investor. Here are some tips on how to prepare for a recession:

Reduce debt: In a recession, debt can be a major burden. It is important to reduce or eliminate debt as much as possible before a recession hits. This can include paying off credit cards, student loans, car loans, and other debts.

Build an emergency fund: An emergency fund is a savings account that is set aside to cover unexpected expenses. During a recession, an emergency fund can be especially important to help cover bills and expenses during periods of job loss or reduced income. Aim to save at least three to six months of living expenses in an emergency fund.

Cut unnecessary expenses: Review your budget and look for ways to cut expenses. This can include canceling subscriptions or memberships, eating out less, and reducing entertainment expenses. By cutting expenses, you can save money and be better prepared for a recession.

Diversify investments: If you are an investor, it is important to diversify your portfolio. This can include investing in a mix of stocks, bonds, and other assets. Diversification can help reduce the risk of loss during a recession.

Improve job skills: In a recession, job loss can be a major concern. It is important to improve your job skills and make yourself more valuable to employers. This can include taking classes, attending workshops, or earning additional certifications.

Consider additional income sources: During a recession, additional income sources can be helpful. This can include a part-time job, freelance work, or starting a side business. By earning additional income, you can offset any potential job loss or reduced income.

Review insurance coverage: Review your insurance coverage, including health, auto, and home insurance. Make sure that you have adequate coverage to protect yourself in case of an unexpected event.

Stay informed: Keep up-to-date on economic news and trends. This can help you anticipate potential economic changes and make informed decisions about your finances.

Plan for the long term: A recession is typically a temporary economic downturn. It is important to plan for the long term and continue to invest in your future. This can include saving for retirement, investing in education, or starting a business.

In conclusion, preparing for a recession is important for individuals, businesses, and investors. By reducing debt, building an emergency fund, cutting unnecessary expenses, diversifying investments, improving job skills, considering additional income sources, reviewing insurance coverage, staying informed, and planning for the long term, you can be better prepared for any potential economic downturn. While a recession can be difficult, being prepared can help you weather the storm and emerge stronger in the long run.

Election Fraud is Massive and On-Going in America

Across the U.S., the magnitude of voter fraud that occurs year after year, election after election, is staggering.



Jay DeLancey is founder and president of the North Carolina Voter Integrity Project, and has much to say about voting in America:

Our system begs for transparency at all points along the election process. Who can vote, who did vote, how did they vote, and what was the tally? Today, unfortunately voter fraud is real and of enormous magnitude, as we saw in 2020 and 2022. Nowhere is this more evident than with absentee ballots.

Who, in any voting precinct, literally visits the homes of voters who filed absentee ballots to ensure that they are out of town? Even among those who have a legitimate quest to vote by absentee ballot, who can assure that their vote is counted properly and tallied accurately?

The absentee ballot initiative started as a viable effort to increase the ability of qualified citizens to vote, but has now become into a primary tool of manipulation. The more we can see, the fairer the elections are likely to be. The less we can see, the greater the likelihood that fraud will occur. Centralized absentee ballot collection is exactly the opposite of local voting in a precinct where there’s a chance that those with whom you register or vote alongside are your neighbors.

Ensuring the Rights of Qualified Voters

The local voting precinct is better positioned to spot perpetrators of voter fraud. Local poll workers on the scene are better able to assess if you are not the person you claim to be. They will tell you to leave, but by law that’s all they can do.

They can’t retain someone and hold them until authorities arrive, even in the case of blatant voter impersonation. Why? Because in the 1960s, to safeguard the voting capability of those who had been disenfranchised, laws were passed to reduce the incidence of intimidation, accusation, and retention.

Those times have long passed, and now we need ways of ensuring that qualified voters’ civil rights are upheld. Every time an unqualified voter is allowed to cast a vote, it demeans and diminishes the rights of all citizens. As such, voter fraud is the civil rights crisis of our time.

Fraud Occurs Year After Year

If you hear from anyone or from any group that voter fraud does not exist, or that it’s minimal and inconsequential, rest assured most of these proponents believe they are in the right. As long as you vote for their candidate, they’re content to ignore the magnitude, of voter fraud that actually occurs, year after year, election after election, across the U.S. They know they are ‘right,’ so why forsake their ironclad view that voter integrity groups are secretly voter suppression groups?

We’re always asked, how do you know that voter fraud exists? We have case histories, anecdotes, cross tabulated data, eyewitness testimony, and more. Voter fraud is real and rampant. Yet, we will routinely encounter some academic, usually from some law school, saying, “The science is settled on this. Voter fraud is a myth.”

Professors will proclaim from on high declaring that few people ever engage in voter fraud. Such professors are people of influence, they teach students, write papers, give lectures, attend symposiums, and spew authoritative misinformation. Cognizant or not, the damage that they do to society is ongoing and significant.

A Mortal Threat to Democracy

“The science was settled” in the early 1500s, that the sun rotated around the earth. Copernicus and other brave souls risked death to proclaim that earth was not the center of the universe as we knew it, or even our solar system.

We swim against the tide of what was launched in the 1960s but today has morphed into a mortal threat to democracy. The challenge we all face is to guarantee transparency in elections so that everyone can see the results and, more importantly, accept the results when their candidate does not win.

Overcome Leftist Propaganda: Conservative Documentaries and Extended Interviews

In ‘ultra-woke’ America finding media outlets and information vehicles that report the truth is challenge.



Being middle-of-the-road or conservative in today’s insanely ‘woke’ America means having a hard time finding media outlets and information vehicles that report the truth. We are all far too familiar with the reality confronting us on a daily basis.

The high-tech online companies, corporate America, major newspapers, major TV networks, Hollywood, and a variety of otherwise so-called ‘journalists’ maintain an incredible, indefensible slant to the left. Many border on Marxism and outright Communism. They lie by omission, by twisting narratives, or by creating stories out of whole cloth which fit their pre-selected parallaxed narratives.

Precise, not Speculative

Here, for your edification, are 12 conservative documentaries and/or lengthy interviews. Notice the care and precision with which each has been produced, offering names, dates, facts, and figures with little or no hyperbole.
