Time is quickly fading away for you to prepare.

At the time of writing, 11/13/2020, the United States is currently facing two major crises:
A contested political election and an increasingly worse Coronavirus pandemic situation, the latter of which nearly brought the country down on its knees entirely early in the year. Some may think this will be all over soon after this winter. This is sadly not the case.
What can you, the reader, expect from a prolonged political crisis and pandemic?
What should you do to prepare?

Coronavirus: The Real Threat is not to our Lives, but our Livelihoods

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

Let’s start with the “easiest” crisis to dissect, the Coronavirus aka “SARS-CoV-2”. The entire year of 2020 will be remembered in the history books by this virus and its consequences. As many anti-lockdown activists have pointed out, the lockdown restrictions are having devastating consequences on the economy and it is NOT affecting everyone fairly.

Unemployment and Small Businesses – The Final Nail in the Coffin

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

As I write this, over 11 million Americans remain unemployed and tens of millions more have relied on some form of social assistance payments (such as unemployment or stimulus checks) to not end up penniless. However, COVID-19 cases are on a rapid rise again, which was predicted due to the colder weather, and currently stands at over 140,000 new daily cases confirmed 11/11/2020. New lockdown restrictions may be imminent in major cities and dozens of states across the country. Will these new restrictions help control the virus? Probably not for a few weeks, as experience has shown. What does this mean for the economy?

The obvious issue with the virus becoming a major problem again, regardless of lockdowns, is fewer people will be outside shopping, going to bars, eating at restaurants, going to entertainment venues, etc. This is not only bad for the economy but negatively affects small businesses the worst, which are already barely able to breathe on their own now after the first round of lockdowns.

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

Over 90% of small businesses report negative effects from COVID, nearly 10% have had permanent layoffs, and over 75% were seeking financial assistance from the government to survive. This was only from just the first blow of a COVID wave. Nearly half of the country’s businesses fall into the small business category and many are the primary support for their local communities.

Millions, if not tens of millions will be unemployed again over the next few months or remain unemployed if they were already. Thousands of more small businesses will fail or need government assistance again, which may not come. If city, state, or even worse, federally mandated lockdowns are enacted, the situation will go from desperate to dire.

A Housing Market Crash That Will Make 2008 Look Great

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

With so many focusing on unemployment, an even greater threat looms in the real-estate industry. People who cannot work cannot pay their rent or mortgages, and the same applies commercially to businesses. Investments in real estate five years ago are now liabilities and the landlords or creditors can only be deferred payment for so long before eviction or foreclosure. Compounding this problem, building materials are now much more expensive than they were at the beginning of the year, meaning current housing developments and construction companies are at risk of not completing projects.

Some estimates place the number of Americans at risk of eviction from 30 to 40 million. State and Federal eviction moratoriums are expiring or have expired, and the chances they come back are uncertain. If you think renters have it rough, homeowners are not much better off. About 3.5 million homeowners are currently in forbearance with their mortgages, and nearly 60% of these loans are on an extension. So now not only do we have tens of millions of Americans at risk of becoming homeless, the creditors are not in a good situation here either. Those who remember the 2008 crash ripple effect know that banks and other lenders were just sitting on empty houses, losing money, unable to sell them.

Could the US Dollar Experience Rapid Inflation and Possibly Lose its Global Status?

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

If you have been paying attention so far, it sounds like the effects of the Coronavirus could not only gut punch the US Economy and housing market but the US Dollar too. This is correct and the dollar has been on a very rocky road this year, with the price of gold going from ~$1530/oz at the beginning of 2020 to ~$1880/oz as of 11/13/2020, a nearly 23% increase in only a year. Why does this matter? Gold has a nearly universal and unchanging value over time, meaning that investors are quickly losing faith in the US Dollar to have worth. While this doesn't correlate directly with inflation, it is a very worrying sign.

The Federal Reserve has not been able to resolve this, with trillions in bonds not able to calm the markets. While hyperinflation is a legitimate concern, it is not the immediate one. Decreasing US Dollar values do help the US compete with exports on the global market (to an extent), though decreasing purchasing power for the workers of the USA has consequences. The main issue is if a different currency becomes the standard for investors and countries to put their wealth into, such as the Euro, Yen, or Yuan. If this were to occur, billions of dollars from around the world would flood onto the market as investors trade. Now comes the hyperinflation.

The current US Federal Government national debt of $27.2 TRILLION does not help this situation.

Can a Country Without a Recognized Leader Continue to Function?

Pick your favorite white old man

Let’s now discuss the ongoing presidential election: There is no official winner yet, and whoever “wins” will not be good for society as it currently stands with the issues I discussed earlier.
Do not listen to the media on this; until all states report their final count (possibly after a recount), all court cases are either settled or thrown out, and the electors cast their votes for the next president, both Donald Trump (R) and Joe Biden (D) have not clearly won as of 11/13/2020.

So, what would happen in each scenario of the presidential elects winning?

President Trump Remains in Office: A Broken Political System Shows its Colors

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

At the time of writing, the Trump Administration has filed suit in Pennslyvania over suspicious ballot actions such as restricting GOP observers from watching the vote count and the mixing of late mail-in ballots with those that were sent before the deadline. There is currently a manual recount underway in Georgia, and other states such as Nevada, Michigan, and Wisconsin have some level of allegations regarding fraud, ranging from affidavits to voting software errors.

Are any of these allegations of fraud or improper tallying of ballots true or are they "baseless"?
Well, if even just ONE of these allegations of substantial fraud is verified by the courts, the whole election situation will go from bad to worse. Tens of millions of Americans will lose faith in the democratic process and the election itself would appear invalid, even if the uncovered fraud is not proven to have shifted the victory away from Trump. Conservatives will not accept Biden as president and Trump would have a reason not to concede the office.

Now what?
Now what?

While many have joked about having to drag the President out of the White House by force, in reality, Biden couldn't easily make this happen. Sure, some alphabet agency could escort Trump out, but on whose orders or authority? The military is unlikely to remove him and Democrats in Congress do not have the power to remove him either. The only people that could pressure Trump to leave in this scenario are conservative politicians themselves, who probably won't.

Another scenario resulting from proven fraud could be "faithless" state electors, as voters in the Electoral College don't have to vote according to the popular vote in their states, as many states do not have laws that bind them. Even then, the punishment for breaking these binds in states with these laws is minor. If the electors within the electoral college suspect ballot fraud and decide to vote for Trump instead of Biden, it would be legal and retain Trump in office.

Unforeseen Consequences or all Part of the Plan?

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

Somehow, someway, Trump is still in the Oval Office. A dangerous dynamic was formed from much of the media and the Biden campaign itself already assuring the Democrat base and other left-wing voters that Biden will take office. With the despair of COVID-19 and many still angry over police brutality this year, what would happen if these people think they have managed to get Trump out of the office and it is yanked from right under their feet? It isn't just mudslinging anymore, these people will legitimately see Trump as a dictator who has stolen the presidency, and any and all mob violence will be on the table across the US.

Conservatives now cannot win in this situation, they have become targets of riots and political rage. Trump, Republicans, and other conservatives will be demonized as a political mafia. If conservatives choose to succumb to "Law & Order" via Martial law, any moral high ground on personal liberty and government restriction of force is now lost, and a politcla upheaval could have these same conservatives facing the lines of riot police in only a few years. Many stocked up on weapons incase the mobs came for them and that day has finally dawned, but with the chances stacked against them.

Not what you want to see on Main Street, Your Town, USA.
Not what you want to see on Main Street, Your Town, USA.

Worse yet, internationally the United States will be seen as an illegitimately ruled state, with possible military or economic sanctions implemented for the country to "reconsider" its path. Trump will also have little in the way to prevent or fix a housing market crash, which would likely put multiple nails in the coffin of the "conservative" economic ideology being good for the economy and motivate millions more to join the ranks of Democratic-socialism. The only good news is that Trump will likely prevent further Chinese aggression against the US people, economy, and military interests, which will stave off a global shift of power from the United States to China even during economic turmoil.


Joe Biden Takes Office as the 46th President. Everything Will be Okay, Right?

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

From the above scenario I depicted, one would assume the best case is for Biden to take the presidency, even if fraud is proven to some degree. There likely will still be massive protests and possibly some mob violence, but nothing compared to the previous depiction of total anarchy. However, a Biden presidency will have immediate repercussions that will directly affect people in ways other than mobs on the street.

Under Biden, the looming economic collapse from COVID-19 I described above would substantially accelerate. One of Biden's chosen advisers has expressed a desire of instituting a nationwide lockdown for 4-6 weeks, and much of Biden's campaign has supported the lockdown concept. It has already been shown in the first section that the lockdowns had far-reaching and highly destructive effects. Another massive lockdown will grind the stock market and personal wealth in the country to a standstill. Even if the Biden administration itself decides not to pull the trigger on federally mandated lockdowns, he will likely encourage them and many state governors will follow his path.

Coronavirus Assistance: Could We Run Out of Money?

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

There is another aspect to Biden's lockdown plan that would be dishonest to ignore, however. Biden wants the eviction and foreclosure moratoriums to return along with financial assistance for those who cannot work. However, the types and amounts of assistance his administration desires passing are not hopeful as the second stimulus bill chaos has shown. Republicans are worried about the long-term fiscal effects of additional trillions in debt, particularly how it may affect the value of the dollar as I discussed earlier, and certain "poison pills" embedded in stimulus proposals. With a likely Republican-controlled Senate remaining, any proposed packages will have to receive a majority GOP approval.

The other issue is simply that the state and even federal governments may not even have the money available to pay out to people. This already occurred earlier in the year with hundreds of thousands of citizens waiting weeks, if not months for unemployment relief. Now with state reserves for unemployment assistance all but empty, the chances of COVID relief payments reaching the unemployed and struggling businesses will be improbable at best. The Federal Reserve and Mints of the country would not be able to "create" money fast enough to get to people either. If a Trump re-election via courts would cause mob violence in the streets, millions of workless, starving, and possibly homeless people will make an even worse fuss, especially if the value of the dollar rapidly starts to deteriorate.

Is There Good News for Republicans And Conservatives Under A Biden Presidency?

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

Some may remember the "Tea Party" movement, strongest from 2009-2010, that galvanized many different conservative voices under a common goal of opposing tax increases, government debt, and seemingly unconstitutional laws. A resurgence of this movement may appear under a Biden presidency accompanied by worsening government debt and an economic downturn. This especially would be true if some level of election fraud is proven and states attempt mass mail-in ballots again for the 2022 election. With a Republican-held senate, the sun may not set on conservative movements around the country, and even possibly grow more powerful than before.

However, it isn't all Sunshine: Enter the Ministry of Truth and Ministry of Public Safety

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

"Fake News", "Unverifiable", "Anonymous Sources Say", "Baseless", "Independent Fact Checkers Have Reviewed", etc. are all words many have heard the past few years. Some of these "truthers" have exposed legitimate falsehoods or twisting of the truth, others have purposely manipulated the truth themselves or chosen to focus on only one side of the issue without digging further. Either way, the recent COVID-19 and election madness with mass censorship or fact-checking, even of jokes, by social media and news corporations are now blatantly obvious to anyone who doesn't wish to be the one making the checks themselves. Well, many are calling for official structured reporting, fact-checking, and censoring services, a "Ministry of Truth", so to speak. Some have even suggested making a blacklist of all of those involved in the Trump Administration, whether by working for it directly, donating, or even speaking positively of it:

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

Conservatives can expect a double-down of censorship, attack articles, and expression restrictions to the point where saying the wrong thing could have one's phone service terminated or bank accounts frozen. Good luck even holding a job in the "polite" society with a silence of any dissent and possible COVID restrictions preventing public demonstrations.

The "Ministry of Public Safety" will primarily be concerned with new draconian firearms and ammunition sales and ownership restrictions. While some believe gun violence justifies at least some of these restrictions, the truth is that firearms are the final and most powerful political force regardless of personal ideology. Governments want to control without a fight, and an armed populace is a major barrier to having control, which is why they want to have such a tight grasp on their ownership. The sale of firearms in 2020 have blown records of previous years out of the water, with over 17 million firearms this year alone as Americans believe they are on their own due to the COVID-19 panic and civil unrest. This shows an ever-increasing number of Americans are more concerned with their personal safety than "public" safety.

How YOU can Prepare and Survive, if not Thrive, During the Chaos:

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

If you've made it this far, you can probably see that the future is not optimistic, even if some of the things I discussed do not end up happening or end up exaggerated. While it is difficult to give advice to readers who have entirely different finances, skills, geographic locations, family situations, etc., there are some tips I can give to help you weather the storm, no matter the situation.
(1.) If you have some wealth but do not own a house yet or want a second house, save up and hold off a bit as housing prices are likely to drop significantly within the next several months. Take advantage of the situation, even if it at someone's expense of foreclosure.
(2.) On saving up, I would be careful about putting money into stocks that are not slow, safe, and stable. You can put your money into precious metal stocks and companies, but keep in mind you do not own that physical gold you have "bought". A better long-term solution is to buy tangible precious metals in the form of coins, bars, or jewelry. If good times come again, you can sell this stock and have paper money again.

The Calm Before Storm: Be Prepared for Massive Chaos no Matter who is President

(3.) In the case of COVID, pre-make and freeze your meals or have a supply of non-perishables in case meat shortages appear again or if people panic and clear out the markets. Chest freezers are not expensive to buy or operate.
(4.) Have some sort of "bug out" or "get out of town" bag/kit and plan. If civil unrest becomes a widespread reality, the urban and suburban areas will be chaotic and dangerous places. I always recommend to shelter-in-place if you can instead, as your residence is much easier to survive in and defend, but the situation could turn for the worst fast. Have a friend or family member within a 50-mile radius that you could escape to if your current area becomes unsafe.
(5.) Stay under-the-radar online and on social media, mainly regarding political opinions, regardless of your ideology. There are people who are trying to make lists of enemies and others actively trying to report some or publicly shame them for their beliefs, even if they are not extreme. Sit back and observe.
(6.) This is a controversial one and if you do not have one already it is pretty much too late, but get some sort of firearm and ammunition suitable for personal protection and know how to use it. Do not be thinking you will join some sort of community defense force or have to fight off mass mobs, instead have it in case the situation in tip (4) unfolds. There will be bad actors or criminals that take advantage of the chaos to steal or kill.
(7.) Try to start learning a recession "proof" skill, such as electrician, plumbing, HVAC, or utility work. Finance and business jobs may disappear overnight, but unless something truly devastating happens, people will still need and be willing to pay for electricity, running water, and air conditioning. Of course, this is a huge ask of many as we likely do not have time to devote to learning a whole new trade, but long-term it can be well worth it.

In conclusion, do not become drunk on ideology, stay vigilant, read between the lines, and ensure you take all steps now and into the future to make it to the light of the tunnel. All questions, criticism, and threats are welcome in the comments.

    Wow. . . so this is just another bullshit post.

    Anyone claiming election fraud really isn't saying what their problem is.

    The fact is you guys are mad that you lost the election. You are not mad about any fraud. You are not trying to make sure that every American citizen can legally vote if they want to.

    You just want your guy to win. And if he doesn't then there is fraud.

    Period.
    Is this still revelant?
    • front2back

      I don't seem to remember claiming election fraud. I do remember outlining a scenario where IF election fraud was proven to some degree, it could change the course of the election.

    • Sir, in every single Presidential election, there is no clear winner at this point. There is an apparent winner. Biden is the President-elect. To pretend otherwise is beyond insane. Then to suggest that there is enough evidence of fraud that any state will overturn the result is not really being logical.

      But it was predictable in the event that trump lost.

      Now we are at this precipice, looking at the demise of democracy in the United States. Why do you pretend to be a conservative? The death of democracy does not concern you. Your champion losing an election was the only concern. I mean this is what has left me stunned. Trump supporters would rather win. . . than have actual democracy in the United States. A conservative wants democracy first and foremost.

      In your post, you list several actual conservative positions, just like you had these concerns when Trump was in office.

      It is simply disingenuous.

    • front2back

      (1.) I stated that fraud was alleged in several states, which it has been, that doesn't mean it can be proven or is even true. My scenario on Trump somehow maintaining office requires this condition to be met, otherwise he is out.
      (2.) The demise of democracy in the US isn't a new thing and has been occuring for decades, which is why I haven't had much faith in the system for several years now. It does concern me but what can I do about it.
      (3.) I didn't even vote for Trump the first time around so why would my only care would be him winning? I even point out that him winning is NOT a victory for conservatives long-term.
      (4.) I actually have had many of these concerns the past couple years, mainly regarding the value of the dollar, housing market issues, and "ministries of truth" forming. The issue going forward is that with a Biden presidency it will fortify these issues into something much bigger than before.

      This blog is meant to serve as a warning. I really don't care which two old white dudes hold presidential power when everything else is deteriorating.

    With the maturing of the internet, came the anonymity of speech, news, and alternate-facts. Basic online sourcing should be a required middle school program. Sadly, the vast majority of people online have no idea how to properly source a "fact", and because of this they have fallen prey to the overblown narratives and thought manipulations of the mass marketing of competing interests.

    I've lost my desire to debate the topic any further, as I'm often finding myself at odds with someone who is armed with misinformation, and their propagandized world view completely disallows any acceptance of any other views. Even when presented with de-facto evidence, they are incapable of accepting it, and label the evidence as fake, without proof, and when challenged they will resort to gaslighting, projecting, insulting, and outright bullying in an effort to take charge of the conversation and discount their opponent / arguments.

    This denial of election results is the culmination of the propaganda wielded against the majority of the less-educated masses, and they are eating it up like a free all-you-can-eat buffet at the Sizzler. It's embarrassing to watch.
  • goaded
    I skimmed through, expecting to find something like this:

    "Do not listen to the media on this; until all states report their final count (possibly after a recount), all court cases are either settled or thrown out, and the electors cast their votes for the next president, both Donald Trump (R) and Joe Biden (D) have not clearly won as of 11/13/2020."

    That is utter bullshit. For decades, the results of an election have been clear within a few days to a week of polling day. They've been accepted by all concerned, and the process of transitioning to the new administration has begun quickly and seamlessly. The only time the supreme court got involved was in 2000, when one state was in question, with a vote difference in the hundreds, not tens of thousands in multiple states.

    The reprehensible behaviour of the outgoing president and his Republican enablers in Congress, for not putting an end to it, is the only reason there may be chaos, and it's being done intentionally. Trump has spent years throwing around baseless accusations left, right, and centre, at the media, the FBI, the CIA, the Democrats, and even Republicans who don't toe his line, like the Republicans running several of the states' elections that found Biden won. Hell, even Fox News is no longer immune to this treatment!

    It's a continuation of Republican destruction of norms in the interests of power dating back at least to the Clinton administration.

    To say that lockdowns are bad for the economy is shortsighted.
    Take a look at the success New Zealand and Australia have had at eliminating the virus, allowing the economy to open up again sooner.
    Australia's and New Zealand's success has only been possible because their citizens understand the scientific rational for the lockdown, and are not so ignorant and selfish to think that their personal freedoms are more important than doing what has to be done to beat a pandemic. Short term pain, long term gain.

    In the mean time, the people protesting in the streets that lockdowns infringe on their personal freedoms and their "constitutional rights" are the super-spreaders that ruin any chance of a lockdown being successful at eliminating the virus, creating an unwinnable situation. They are the bad apples that ruin the whole bunch.

    Of course, in order for a lockdown plan to work, it does require the government to step up and release emergency funding to stop people from going broke in the short term, so it is up to Joe to think this through before sending the country into lockdown.

    If he can do that, in the first year, I will be content, with that.
    So many say so much BS about what he might do. I think his focus will be on the virus, and controlling that, and I hope that does not mean a SHUTDOWN!! We can't afford that, with our, barely recovering economy!
    If he can contain, and reduce the virus effects, without causing the loss of millions of jobs, maybe distribute a practical vaccine, then, maybe, I will accept him, even though I am concerned with his RADICAL Liberal side!

    What you wrote is outstanding. The end results in your scenarios likely will not be as bad as you describe, but they could be worse. I believe best outcome, at least for the half of the people that are not socialists would be to separate the USA into two or more countries. That will be good for the non-socialists since so much of their money and wealth will not be taken by force to support the non-productive. However, except for those in power, it will be horrible for the socialists since they will not be able to steal from the productive class as they do now and their will not be enough wealthy socialists to support the lazy and non-productive. Like in North Korea Venezuela there will be extreme poverty and starvation.

    Nah. The most likely scenario

    1. Some errors or fraud found, but not anywhere enough to change more than a few local elections.
    2. Republicans win one or both of the Georgia runoffs.
    3. Biden takes office.
    4. With a GOP Senate and a reduced Democratic majority in the House, Biden has the freedom to tell the Squad to f-off and revert to his middle-of-the-road persona, which will be backed by The GOP Senate.

    Historically a Democratic President with a GOP House and/or Senate has been great for the economy.

      You think the GOP senate will back what Biden wants to do, or Biden will be forced to do what Republicans demand?

    • The President has the power of the veto. The Republicans would have a difficult time getting enough support to override a veto. And at Biden's age, serving one term as President is a big accomplishment. That's why priming himself for reelection might not be a big motivation for Biden to bend to the will of the Republicans in order to appease moderate Republican swing voters.

    • @WalterBlack The veto is irrelevant. The Senate can stand pat on the Trump tax cuts and refuse to pass any of Biden's pet projects.

  • What do you think about a BB gun here?
    • front2back

      I got one for my 12 year cousin so she could learn how to shoot a rifle.
      That should clue you in on how much I value BB or pellet guns.

    • They might be useful if you plan on hunting small game, like squirrels, in the event of a food shortage. But they are useless for home defense.

    • Ask a survivor of a home invasion how much safer they would've been with a BB gun in the house...

    Your ideas are too apocalyptic. They are a little off. It seems like the transition between Trump and Biden will proceed. It may be a little rough, but it will happen:
    https://www.nytimes.com/live/2020/11/23/us/joe-biden-trump

    It seems a COVID vaccine should be available in 1-2 months for the older and vulnerable. In a few months, COVID deaths will plummet.

    The economy has seen the worst. More people are traveling. More restaurants and bars are open. It is getting better. That's not the same as saying it is currently good. It just means economically, the worst is behind us. The worst was probably during the summer.

    The transition from Trump to Biden. COVID and the economy will not be as bad four months from now as you predict.

    Irrespective of who is eventually is shown to be the winner of the electoral race, if I was still living in America I'd have laid in at least 5 months of basic food and other consumables and got the hell out of the big cities and head to any small rural town.

    I am not concerned about Republican supporters as they are libel to just shrug their collective shoulders and say 'Ah well there's the next election', it is the loony far left of the Democrats that has me worried as there seems to be no one holding the reins who can be held accountable and from their recent actions across America have shown that they intend to keep causing grief no matter who's in the Whitehouse.
