CIB is here near week's end with an episode we weren't planning on making but ended up recording anyway because of the insatiable ambition to podcast that we have deep in our CONTENT-making marrow. We're yapping about the week in sports-viewing, bad NPR interviews, Billy Corgan podcasts of silly intent and dubious merit, bad Twitter reactions, and a whole host of other things that we're not actually going to talk about this week, we swear. Listen, if you must! Has something we said, or failed to say, made you FEEL something? You can tell us all about it on Facebook or Twitter, leave a comment on the show's page on our website, or you can send us an email here.

On this episode of the NTEB Prophecy News Podcast, we are looking at a real-life scenario where the global elites are acting out very much like what you saw in movies like 2012, Armageddon, Knowing, and The Day After Tomorrow. Ever wonder where Hollywood gets all these ideas for movies from? They don't know it, but it all comes from your King James Bible that has already shown you and told you what will come to pass in the last days. The very wealthy global elites think they can 'prepare for the Apocalypse', but you and know that that is impossible. Imagine for a moment in your mind the Strong Delusion combined with the Seal, Trumpet, Seven Last Plagues and Vial judgments. I ask you, what sort of doomsday bunker can you build to withstand that? New Zealand has become a prime destination for billionaires seeking doomsday refuge, from Google co-founder Larry Page, 49, to Silicon Valley entrepreneur Sam Altman, 37, who let it slip in a 2016 interview that he and PayPal cofounder Peter Thiel had a mutual agreement to escape to Thiel's New Zealand compound via private jet at the first sign of society's collapse. But for the born again child of God, no bunker is needed as we have the sealing of the Holy Spirit. Welcome to Day 924 of 15 Days To Flatten the Curve, do you have your shelter in the time of storm ready? I do. Today on the Prophecy News Podcast, we have all this and so much more!

Thomas talks with Geoff Shullenberger, managing editor of Compact Magazine and host of the Outsider Theory podcast. They discuss how the regime benefits from over-simplified understandings of the red and blue pills as well as from certain blends of conspiracy theory with pop-spirituality. Roland Emmerich's "disaster trilogy" (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, and 2012) is also discussed, revealed as blatant propaganda for depopulation and globalist technocracy. https://outsidertheory.com/https://compactmag.com/https://twitter.com/daily_barbarianhttps://www.thenewatlantis.com/publications/redpilling-and-the-regimehttps://compactmag.com/article/alex-jones-crusader-and-clownhttps://unlimitedhangout.com/2021/06/podcasts/the-neocon-agenda-to-militarize-space-with-robbie-martin/https://www.patreon.com/PsyopCinemahttps://twitter.com/CinemaPsyophttps://email@example.com@protonmail.com
Our first two-part episode of CGI Fridays – and if you've caught up with Episode 6, you'll understand why – Australian-born veteran of small and large screen CG is, like many Aussies, a natural raconteur. When we left him he was recalling work on James Cameron's epic Titanic – which in 1997 overtook Star Wars' box office records – so it's appropriate that we rejoin him for CGI Fridays Episode 7 in the climatic final chapter of the Prequel Trilogy.

Armageddon, Interstellar, and The Day After Tomorrow walk into a bar. They see two brothers touch wieners while shaking the president's hand. A daughter who has a total of 3 minutes of screen time is supposed to be the emotional anchor that holds it all together. Bartender says the title of the movie half a dozen times for no reason. Everybody is confused. If you're troubled by what transpired, you might as well have watched Geostorm. A movie that defies space, time, science, and our sensibilities. Let's get into it... Daddy daughter proxy smarts! Zeus suit riots! Who holoframed Roger Rabbit?! Presidential potty mouth! Fried egg semantics! Secretive Servicing! Hidden Dutch Boy backdoor entrances, and much, much more on this week's episode of The Worst Movie Ever Made! Now in 2D and color on YouTube Every Sunday. www.theworstmovieevermade.com

Hey Y'all are you ready for the first installment of #HotEarthSummer!? This is the first in our series on climate change in movies and how it may not be helping with the effort to fight climate change. We're starting things off with The Day After Tomorrow, the 2004 Jake Gyllenhaal film that imagines a global super storm that brings in a new ice age. This storm, and the plot line, really sucks... cold air down from the troposphere. Join the conversation!

ALIEN VISITATION: Whitley Strieber's real-life story behind the best-selling book Communion, anal probes, the Chris Dawson case and more! You don't have long left to VOTE FOR US AT THE BRITISH PODCAST AWARDS: https://www.britishpodcastawards.com/vote Hello, Eavesdroppers! After a quick update on the Chris Dawson / Lynette Dawson case that has Australia gripped right now, Geordie's in the hot seat this week, talking all about the author Whitely Strieber! You might know some of his work – The Hunger, The Wolfen – but what Geordie's talking about today is his classic NON-FICTION book called Communion… You know the one… it's got that picture of an alien on the cover with big feline eyes and a long pointy face. Well, if not, you're going to hear all about it along with a few theories as to how this real-life story could possibly be a real-life story… So on Boxing Day in 1985, Whitley Strieber says he was visited by aliens… The result? The book Communion! Was Whitely Strieber's cabin really visited by aliens? Did he and his family actually see aliens that night? What are the greys? Are Whitley Strieber's hypnosis sessions recovered memories or is it all just fiction? Had he been experimented on by aliens? Did he attend Alien School? Is he mad? What's all this about lost time? Are we the lab rats? Was it all just a big PR stunt? You decide!

The company changed the name of one of America’s iconic resorts, managed a near meltdown of its Pacific Northwest anchor, met Covid as well as it could, and continually tweaked Ikon Pass access tiers to avoid overwhelming partner mountains while still offering skiers good value. Oh, and adding Sun Valley, Snowbasin, Chamonix, Dolomiti Superski, Kitzbühel, Schweitzer, Red Mountain, Mt. Bachelor, and Windham to the pass – all since Covid hit.If it’s all seemed a little improvisational and surprising, that’s because it has been. “I have a great propensity for enjoying chaos and anarchy,” Gregory tells me in the podcast. That explains a lot. In the frantic weeks after Covid zipped North American skiing shut in March 2020, angry skiers demanded concessions for lost spring skiing. Vail released, all at once, an encyclopedic Epic Pass credit plan, which metered discounts based upon number of days skied and introduced an “Epic Coverage” program that secured your investment in the event of everything from a Covid resurgence to the death of a beloved houseplant. Alterra, meanwhile, spun its plan together in four dispatches weeks apart – a renewal discount here, a deferral policy there, an extension six weeks later. “We’re continuing to strengthen our offerings,” Gregory told me on the podcast mid-way through this staggered rollout.In other words, Dude, just chill. We’ll get it right. Whether they ultimately did or not – with their Covid response or anything else – is a bit subjective. But I think they’ve gotten more right than wrong. There was nothing inevitable about Alterra or the Ikon Pass. Vail launched the Epic Pass in 2008. It took a decade for the industry to come up with an effective response. The Mountain Collective managed to gather all the best indies into a crew, but its reach was limited, with just two days at each partner. M.A.X. Pass, with five days per partner, got closer, but it was short on alpha mountains such as Jackson Hole or Snowbird (it did feature Big Sky, Copper, Steamboat, and Winter Park) and wasn’t a season pass to any ski area. The Ikon Pass knitted together an almost impossible coalition of competitors into a coherent product that was an actual Epic Pass equal. Boyne, Powdr, and the ghosts of Intrawest joining forces was a bit like the Mets and the Red Sox uniting to take on the Yankees. It was – and is – an unlikely coalition of competitors fused around a common cause.The Ikon Pass was a great idea. But so was AOL-Time Warner – or so it seemed at the time. But great things, combined, do not always work. They can turn toxic, backfire, fail. Five years in, Alterra and Ikon have, as Gregory tells me, “dramatically exceeded our expectations in every metric for the fifth year in a row.” While Rusty is allergic to credit, he deserves a lot. He understands how complex and unruly and unpredictable skiing and the ski industry is. He came up under the tutelage of the great and feisty Dave McCoy, founder of the incomparable and isolated Mammoth Mountain, that snowy California kingdom that didn’t give a damn what anyone else was doing. He understood how to bring people together while allowing them to exist apart. That’s not easy. I can’t get 10 people to agree to a set of rules at a tailgate cornhole tournament (the beer probably doesn’t help). Everyone who loves the current version of lift-served skiing – which can deliver a skier to just about any chairlift in the United States on a handful of passes (and that’s definitely not all of you), and has inspired an unprecedented wave of ski area re-investment – owes Gregory at least a bit of gratitude.What we talked aboutThe accidental CEO; Alterra’s “first order of business was to do no harm”; Rusty’s mindset when the Ikon Pass launched; the moment when everyone began believing that the Ikon Pass would work; reflections on the first five years of Alterra and Ikon; the challenges of uniting far-flung independent ski areas under one coalition; “every year we have to make the effort to stay together”; the radically idiosyncratic individualism of Dave McCoy; what it means that Ikon has never lost a partner – “there’s no points in life for losing friends”; Alterra doesn’t like the Ikon Base Plus Pass either; Covid shutdown PTSD; the long-term impact of Covid on skiing and the world; the risks of complacency around the Covid-driven outdoor boom; why Alterra’s next CEO, Jared Smith, comes from outside the ski industry; how the Ikon Pass and Alterra needs to evolve; preserving the cultural quirks of individual mountains as Alterra grows and evolves under new leadership; “we dramatically exceeded our expectations in every metric for the fifth year in a row”; the importance of ceding local decisions to local resorts; “I have a great propensity for enjoying chaos and anarchy”; the current state of the labor market; Ikon Pass sales trends; “having too many people on the mountain at one time is not a great experience”; staying “maniacally guest-experience focused”; Crystal Mountain’s enormous pass price increase for next season; why Deer Valley and Alta moved off the Base Pass for next season; Mayflower, the resort coming online next to Deer Valley; the Ikon Session Pass as a gateway product; why Alterra pulled Mammoth, Palisades Tahoe, and Sugarbush off the Mountain Collective Pass; Sun Valley and Snowbasin joining Ikon; Ikon’s growing European network; whether Alterra would ever look to buy in Europe; “we’re making constant efforts” to sign new Ikon Pass partners; “we’re very interested in Pennsylvania”; I just won’t let the fact that KSL owns Blue and Camelback go; “Alterra needs to move at the right pace”; whether we will ever see more Ikon partners in the Midwest; why Alterra hasn’t bought a ski area since 2019; whether Alterra is bidding on Jay Peak; and thoughts on Rob Katz’s “growth NIMBYism” speech.Why I thought that now was a good time for this interviewGregory has been Alterra’s CEO for about four and a half years. That seems to be about four and a half years longer than he wanted the job. In 2017, he was enjoying retirement after four decades at Mammoth. As an investor in the nascent Alterra Mountain Company – a Frankenski made up of Mammoth, Palisades Tahoe, and the remains of Intrawest – he helped conduct a wide-reaching search for the company’s first CEO. He ended up with the job not through some deft power play but because the committee simply couldn’t find anyone else qualified to take it.His only plan, he said, was to do no harm. There are, as we have seen, plenty of ways to make multi-mountain ski conglomerates fail. Boyne alone has managed the trick over the extra long term (a fact that the company does not get nearly enough credit for). The years after Gregory took the job in February 2018 certainly tested whether Alterra and Ikon, as constructs, were durable beyond the stoke of first concept.They are. And he’s done. At 68, confined for the past half decade to a Denver office building, I get the sense that Gregory is ready to get away from his desk and back in the liftline (or maybe not – “I will be so pissed if I have to wait in a line,” he tells me on the podcast). He’s earned the break and the freedom. It’s someone else’s turn.That someone else, as we learned last month, will be Jared Smith, Alterra’s current president. Gregory will move into a vice chairman of the board role, a position that I suspect requires extensive on-the-ground snow reporting. Smith, who joined Alterra last year after nearly two decades with Live Nation/Ticketmaster, has plenty to prove. As I wrote in May:Gregory was the ultimate industry insider, a college football player-turned-liftie who worked at Mammoth for 40 years before taking the top job at Alterra in 2018. He’d been through the battles, understood the fickle nature of the ski biz, saved Mammoth from bankruptcy several times. Universally liked and respected, he was the ideal leader for Alterra’s remarkable launch, an aggressive and unprecedented union of the industry’s top non-Vail operators, wielding skiing’s Excalibur: a wintry Voltron called the Ikon Pass. That such disparate players – themselves competitors – not only came together but continued to join the Ikon Pass has no doubt been at least partly due to Gregory’s confidence and charisma.Smith came to Alterra last June after 18 years at Live Nation and Ticketmaster. I don’t know if he even skis. He is, by all accounts, a master of building products that knit consumers to experiences through technology. That’s a crucial skillset for Alterra, which must meet skiers on the devices that have eaten their lives. But technology won’t matter at all if the skiing itself suffers. Alterra has thrived as the anti-Vail, a conglomerate with an indie sheen. Will the Ikon Pass continue to tweak access levels to mitigate crowding? Will Alterra continue its mega-investments to modernize and gigantify its resorts? Can the company keep the restless coterie of Boyne, Powdr, Jackson Hole, Alta, Taos, A-Basin, Revelstoke, Red, and Schweitzer satisfied enough to stay united on a single pass? For Alterra, and for the Ikon Pass, these are the existential questions.I have been assured, by multiple sources, that Smith does, in fact, ski. And has an intuitive understanding of where consumers need to be, helping to transform Ticketmaster from a paper-based anachronism into a digital-first experience company. Covid helped accelerate skiing’s embrace of e-commerce. That, according to Gregory, is just the beginning. “Different times require different leadership, and Jared Smith is the right leader going forward,” Gregory tells me in the podcast.Alterra’s first five years were a proof of concept: can the Ikon Pass work? Yes. It works quite well. Now what? They’ve already thought of all the obvious things: buy more mountains, add more partners, play with discounts to make the thing attractive to loyalists and families. But how does Alterra sew the analogue joy that is skiing’s greatest pull into the digital scaffolding that’s hammering the disparate parts of our modern existence together? And how does it do that without compromising the skiing that must not suffer? Is that more difficult than getting Revelstoke and Killington and Taos to all suit up in the same jersey? It might be. But it was a good time to get Gregory on the line and see how he viewed the whole thing before he bounced.Questions I wish I’d askedEven though this went long, there were a bunch of questions I didn’t get to. I really wanted to ask how Alterra was approaching the need for more employee housing. I also wanted to push a little more on the $269 Steamboat lift tickets – like seriously there must be a better way. I also think blackout dates need to evolve as a crowding counter-measure, and Vail and Alterra both need to start thinking past holiday blackouts (as Indy has already done quite well). I’ve also been preoccupied lately with Alterra’s successive rolling out of megaprojects at Palisades Tahoe and Steamboat and Winter Park, and what that says about the company’s priorities. This also would have been a good time to check in on Alterra’s previously articulated commitments to diversity and the environment. These are all good topics, but Alterra has thus far been generous with access, and I anticipate ample opportunities to raise these questions with their leadership in the future.What I got wrongWell despite immense concentration and effort on my part, I finally reverted to my backwater roots and pronounced “gondola” as “gon-dole-ah,” a fact that is mostly amusing to my wife. Rusty and I vacillated between 61 million and 61.5 million reported U.S. skier visits last year. The correct number was 61 million. I also flip-flopped Vail’s Epic Pass sales number and stated at one point that the company had sold 1.2 million Epic Passes for the 2021-22 ski season. The correct number is 2.1 million – I did issue a midstream correction, but really you can’t clarify these things enough.Why you should consider an Ikon PassI feel a bit uncomfortable with the wording of this section header, but the “why you should ski X” section is a standard part of The Storm Skiing Podcast. I don’t endorse any one pass over any other – my job is simply to consider the merits and drawbacks of each. As regular readers know, pass analysis is a Storm pillar. But the Ikon Pass is uniquely great for a handful of reasons:An affordable kids’ pass. The Ikon Pass offers one of the best kids’ pass deals in skiing. Early-birds could have picked up a full Ikon Pass (with purchase of an adult pass) for children age 12 or under for $239. A Base Pass was $199. That’s insane. Many large ski areas – Waterville Valley, Mad River Glen – include a free kids pass with the purchase of an adult pass. But those are single-mountain passes. The Ikon lets you lap Stratton from your weekend condo, spend Christmas break at Snowbird, and do a Colorado tour over spring break. The bargain child’s pass is not as much of a differentiator as it once was – once Vail dropped Epic Pass prices last season, making the adult Epic Pass hundreds of dollars cheaper than an Ikon Pass, the adult-plus-kids pass equation worked out about the same for both major passes. Still, the price structures communicate plenty about Alterra’s priorities, and it’s an extremely strong message.A commitment to the long season. On April 23 this year, 21 Ikon partners still had lifts spinning. Epic passholders could access just nine resorts. That was a big improvement from the previous season, when the scorecard read 20-2 in favor of Ikon. Part of this is a coincidence – many of Alterra’s partners have decades-long histories of letting skiers ride out the snow: Killington, Snowbird, Arapahoe Basin, Sugarloaf. Others. But part of it is Alterra’s letting of big operational decisions to its individual resorts. If Crystal Mountain wants to stay open into June, Crystal Mountain stays open into June. If Stevens Pass has a 133-inch base on April 18… too bad. Closing day (in 2021) is April 18. The long season doesn’t matter to a lot of skiers. But to the ones it does matter to, it matters a lot. Alterra gets that.That lineup though… The Ikon Pass roster has been lights out from day one. But as the coalition has added partners, and as key mountains have migrated from Epic to Ikon, it has grown into the greatest collection of ski areas ever assembled. As I wrote in March:Whatever the reason is that Snowbasin and Sun Valley fled Epic, the ramifications for the North American multipass landscape are huge. So is Alterra’s decision to yank its two California flagships and its top-five New England resort off of the Mountain Collective. Those two moves gave the Ikon Pass the best top-to-bottom destination ski roster of any multi-mountain ski pass on the continent.Good arguments can still be made for the supremacy of the Epic Pass, which delivers seven days at Telluride and unlimited access to 10 North American megaresorts: Whistler, Northstar, Heavenly, Kirkwood, Park City, Crested Butte, Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, and Breckenridge, plus Stowe, one of the top two or three ski areas in the Northeast.But many of Vail’s ski areas are small and regionally focused. I like Hunter and Jack Frost and Roundtop and Mount Brighton, Michigan, and their value as businesses is unquestioned, both because they are busy and because they draw skiers from rich coastal and Midwestern cities to the Mountain West. But the Epic Pass’ 40-some U.S. and Canadian mountains are, as a group, objectively less compelling than Ikon’s.The Ikon Pass now delivers exclusive big-pass access to Steamboat, Winter Park, Copper Mountain, Palisades Tahoe, Mammoth, Crystal Washington, Red Mountain, Deer Valley, Solitude, and Brighton, as well as a killer New England lineup of Killington, Stratton, Sugarbush, Sunday River, and Loon. The pass also shares big-mountain partners with Mountain Collective: Alta, Arapahoe Basin, Aspen Snowmass, Banff Sunshine, Big Sky, Jackson Hole, Lake Louise, Revelstoke, Snowbasin, Snowbird, Sugarloaf, Sun Valley, and Taos. For pure fall-line thrills and rowdy, get-after-it terrain, there is just no comparison on any other pass.In large parts of America, it’s become impossible to imagine not buying an Ikon Pass. The lineup is just too good. Epic still makes more sense in many circumstances. But for the neutral party, aimed primarily for big-mountain destinations in a city not defined by access to a local, the Ikon is telling a damn good story.Podcast NotesRusty and I talked a bit about the huge jump in Crystal’s pass price for next season. Here’s a more comprehensive look that I wrote in March, based on conversations with Crystal CEO Frank DeBerry and a number of local skiers.We also discuss Mayflower Mountain Resort, which is to be built adjacent to Deer Valley. Here’s a bit more about that project, which could offer 4,300 acres on 3,000 vertical feet. The developers will have to overcome the ski area’s relatively low elevation, which will be compounded by Utah’s larger water issues.Rusty explained why Alterra pulled Palisades Tahoe, Mammoth, and Sugarbush off the Mountain Collective pass ahead of next ski season. Here were my initial thoughts on that move.

What would the disaster movie be without the contributions of German director Roland Emmerich? For over 25 years, Emmerich has made a name for himself destroying cities worldwide, most famously in 1996's "Independence Day". Today on the podcast, we're looking back on Emmerich's magnum opuses: the global warming thriller "The Day After Tomorrow" and the disaster movie to end all disaster movies, "2012". Cinematographer Jake Ures joins us to discuss the effortless charm of John Cusack, Jake Gyllenhaal's early years as an up and coming leading man, the underrated character actor Glenn Plummer, Emmerich's unabashed love for 50 Cent, and America's least valuable leading man, Dennis Quaid. "The Day After Tomorrow" is currently streaming on HBOMax. "2012" is streaming on AMC+.
Episode Eighty-Four: Moonfall (2022)James didn't request this one -- Russ demanded it. The Master of Disaster Roland Emmerich is back to his usual nonsense. For a man who has destroyed the entire world at least five times, what's left to do but drop the whole moon out of the sky? If you saw Independence Day, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012, AND Independence Day: Resurgence, but you didn't think Earth was destroyed QUITE enough in those flicks, then maybe Moonfall is right up your alley.

Disaster movies such as Independence Day, Deep Impact, and The Day After Tomorrow like to use special effects to show the Statue of Liberty being destroyed. It’s a shorthand way of symbolizing the destruction of America. For the people of Jeremiah’s time, the gates of Jerusalem had a similar importance. To speak of their destruction was a shorthand way of symbolizing the end of the nation. To deliver such a message while standing at the Gate of the People was a powerful thing to do (vv. 19–20)! Today’s reading focuses on one of Judah’s sins—breaking the Sabbath, the fourth of the Ten Commandments (vv. 21–22; Ex. 20:8–11). This commandment intertwines rest (not laboring), consecration (keeping the day holy), and following God’s example of resting on the seventh day of creation (Gen. 2:2–3). Historically, the Jews had often disobeyed this command (Jer. 17:23), and the people of Judah then were no different. Two conditionals follow: If the people obey and keep the Sabbath, God will bless them (vv. 24–26). The Davidic line of kings will continue. The city of Jerusalem “will be inhabited forever.” Solomon’s Temple will endure, and the people will continue to worship there. But if the people disobey and break the Sabbath—as was happening before Jeremiah’s very eyes—God “will kindle an unquenchable fire in the gates of Jerusalem” (v. 27). The contrast and what’s at stake couldn’t have been more clear! Interestingly, in His day Jesus condemned the Pharisees on the issue of Sabbath-keeping. On the surface, they kept it through a long list of regulations. But when they criticized Him for healing on the Sabbath, He called them out for their hypocrisy. They had lost sight of God’s purposes for this command (Matt. 12:9–14). >> While Christians differ in their practice of Sabbath keeping, the creation principle of rest is still God’s design for us today. How can you honor the Sabbath today? Extended reading: Jeremiah 16–17

Acomi and Turk182 aim their spoiled cabbages and rotten tomatoes at writer, director Roland Emmerich. In an IndieWire article, Roland attacked Marvel and Star Wars movies saying that there are too man of them being released each year, and the films are stifling the industry. Marvel and Star Wars movies are preventing filmmakers from telling fresh and unique stories. If anyone knows how to tell fresh and unique stories with well written and fully fleshed characters in situations that are emotionally stimulating, intellectually compelling, and character driven, it's Emmerich. With movies like: Independence Day. Independence Day Resurgence. Universal Soldier. Stargate. 2012. Godzilla (1998). The Day After Tomorrow.

This week we are running up that hill and making a deal with God as we discuss “Revelations”! We're talking Scully getting her turn to have an insane Mulder moment, the long-awaited Grandpa Fight, the Boo Crew breaking the laws of physics to show up at a crime scene, and Mulder flying down the Lil Nas X stripper pole to hell and getting scooped up by aliens. We derail the climax by talking about Midnight Mass for five minutes, talk about the greatest masterpiece of our time The Day After Tomorrow, predict that Scully will become pope, and welcome Mike Ehrmantraut to the show. The Brew Crew goes too far this week and gets drunk in an elementary school, so we assume they'll be going on a juice cleanse next week to clean up their act.Send us an email at email@example.com or follow us on Twitter and Instagram!

It is unlikely that the American stock market will crash in 2022.Consumer spending is ramping back up, inflation is soaring, credit's cheap and easy, and politicians are so desperate to keep this hot potato from dropping on their watch that they'll go to nearly any length to avoid a crash.That said, there's no excuse not to be vigilant and extremely wary in these economically absurd times.We can only be certain about one thing: Uncertainty.With that in mind, let's look at ten of the most likely surprises that could crash the stock market despite all attempts to keep the house of cards rising ever higher.1. No more free moneyThe Biden administration has signaled its intention to stop printing as many stimulus trillions this year as they did last year. This is a good thing for the economy, but passive market extractors don't like it one bit.If the Dems fully shut down the printing press, it could trigger a market crash. But they won't. They'll slow it down for a bit, watch the markets totter, then fire it back up again and say, “Well hey, we tried.”Can you blame them? Wouldn't you print free money if you owned the money printer and could use it to get yourself re-elected?2. SnowpocalypseAll that is necessary to extinguish the human race is for winter to blow a little colder, a little longer.No, I'm not talking about a Day After Tomorrow situation.More of a Texas energy fiasco, which left 4.5 million without power and water, cost tens of billions, left thousands with crippling debt, and saw more than 200 people (including a baby) freeze to death.Anti-human corporations rarely let a good crisis go to waste, and several energy companies made billions off the two-week emergency, with some companies jacking prices 180X. (I'm of the opinion that corporatists should go to prison for putting profit over people, but “the free market is always right,” remember?)Don't pretend this can't and won't happen again.In fact, natural gas prices in Europe have already spiked 10+X this winter and the heavy snow hasn't even arrived yet.It's the same for New England.With all the accidental and purposeful supply chain shortages — and, let's be honest, corporations price-testing consumers who've been saving for the past year — if we have a particularly cold or long winter, it could be economically disastrous for millions of people.The problems are many and obvious: Most houses are poorly insulated and bleed heat; they don't have woodstoves; they don't have grid-independent backup generators; they don't provide occupants with a way to survive without reliance on faraway fossil fuel corporations. That's the whole point.If winter hits hard and long and the cost of heating spikes 100+X for the duration, millions of people will be forced into bankruptcy, which will almost certainly crash the stock market.3. Rising interest ratesThe Feds are desperate to slow down this “transitory” inflation. (Don't tell your Congressperson, but words actually have meanings. Transitory means brief, momentary, fleeting. If this yearlong inflation is just a passing cloud, then why are they so worked up about trying to fix it?)If politicians cared about the masses — which they do not — all they'd need to do is aggressively tax corporate profits and billionaire wealth, but such things are unthinkable in hyper-individualist America.That understood, their go-to mechanism is raising interest rates. But as Data-Driven Investor points out, a 1% interest rate hike could scythe 30–40% off the stock market. I don't expect them to do so, but if house, stock, and food prices jump another 30% in the year ahead, it's crazy to think that they'd rather crash the markets than tax the billionaires who benefit from all these outrageous price increases in the first place.4. COVID-22Sometimes I forget that we're still in the middle of a global pandemic and a quarter of the American population refuses to understand that vaccines aren't the hill to die on.But with any luck, Omicron will burn through the global population with minimal carnage and give us enough immunity to get back to normal-ish life.That said, another mutation could create a significantly more deadly variant that could make the Bubonic plague look like the man flu.(The big philosophical question I keep asking myself is: If COVID-19 had a 90+% infection rate and a 90+% kill rate, would there be any anti-vaxxers left or would they drop the charade and get serious about their health?)If a hyper-deadly coronavirus emerges this year, we'd likely see a stock market crash.5. Petty politiciansThere's obviously a huge amount of anti-vax hysteria on the far right, but there's also an outrageous amount of hysteria on the far left as well.All the social isolation has gone to our heads, with social media turning our brains to mush, causing a mental health crisis that could take a whole generation to flush from our collective system.Human beings are generally control freaks who love to tell others what to do, and in the year ahead, we may see totalitarian-leaning “progressives” try to lock down their populations once again.If they do so, expect riots in the streets as people reach a breaking point… followed by a market crash.6. Ch!na and/or RussiaThere's no telling what could happen to the markets if Putin does, indeed, decide to invade Ukraine this year.Same if Ch!na makes a play for the Taiwan Strait.Or if the US-Ch!na world continues to bifurcate and makes the rest of the world choose sides, essentially creating a two-economy Earth.7. Real estateThe Ch!nese housing bubble could implode at any moment.Same for Canada.And the United Kingdom.And much of the developed and developing world.Shelter prices have risen to lethal heights on the backs of lifetime debt for the masses, Airbnb's colonization of former family homes, and the hyper-financed institutional land-lorders who are turning the contributive working class into lifetime subscription serfs.But if one domestic real estate market falls, it could set off a chain reaction that could take down the stock market as well.8. CryptoBitcoin and his/her/brrr buddies are now a $3 trillion Ponzi scheme, and if something (or someone) spooks the markets bad enough, it could cause a sell-off that crashes the real market.(Think: The Fed announcing crypto is now illegal and anyone caught holding $BTC faces a $250,000 fine or five years in prison.)You never know, but I don't think this is going to happen quite yet — but once the Feds release their own dystopian surveillance currency, expect the digital dollar war to begin in earnest.9. Extreme weather eventsDang it, climate change, why can't you just be fake?2021 saw record fires out west and record flooding out east, plus hellish heat domes over Canada and Russia, and we can only expect such events to get worse in the year ahead.The question is: How much can the markets handle?As in, how much can speculators afford to gamble that the meme stock known as Tesla will tick a few points higher while they rack up credit card debt to pay for 24/7 air conditioning, more expensive food, and flood and/or fire insurance?If next summer's fires reach LA, or a bad drought scorches Midwest crops, or rains pummel Manhattan and flood the subway system, or the Texas oil refineries get wiped out by a hurricane, it could set off a chain reaction that crashes the market.Or Yellowstone could finally just put America out of its misery.10. A major cyberattackCyber attacks happen literally thousands of times every single day, but if an army of foreign hackers managed to hijack one of America's three power grids and keep it down for a week or more, there's a good chance we'd see a major market plunge.(Though, honestly hackers, the world would be a far better place if war criminal Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook went down forever. Just saying.)In conclusionThere's good news, dear reader: The stock market isn't everything.In fact, I sometimes wish we could get rid of grow-forever corporations and move forward solely with local/regional companies and partnerships and co-ops and for-benefits.Sure, multinational corporatism has proven wildly profitable for the hyper-elites (and brutally punishing on the working class and the environment), but there comes a point when you realize that capitalism has reached an inflection point and doesn't deliver the widest-spread wellbeing it promised.At some point, stability for the masses must take precedence over one more digital zero on the net worths of the spoiled few. The idea that an economy can grow forever inside a finite ecological system is not only dangerous and stupid but scientifically impossible.An added bonus? A tanking stock market gets rid of price inflation.In reality, the stock market won't even really be “crashing” — it'll just be resetting to temporary sanity… before blasting off to the moon again, leaving tens of millions of hard-working Americans burned and suffering in its wake.The modern global economy simply isn't designed to promote human flourishing. It exists to extract wealth from people and the planet, enslave the working class, and steal our time.This year, our work as common serfs is to build the world in which we want to live — a world free of unsustainable, anti-democratic, monopolistic, tax-evading multinational corporations.In other words, a world where stock market crashes simply don't matter to us, and don't affect us, because we no longer need them.

After introducing the world to one of the greatest fake presidents in INDEPENDENCE DAY, director Roland Emmerich is back with not one, but TWO fake presidents in 2004's climate-themed disaster movie THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW. Also in this movie's oval office -- a really weird (and distracting) choice of houseplants. (See a photo of this movie's oval office here) Can Dennis Quaid save Jake Gyllenhaal and Emmy Rossum? (Yep!) Can he also save the world from an ice age? (Nope!) Does this movie have the most depressing ending for a massive summer blockbuster until that AVENGERS movie where half the universe dies? (Probably!) Find us on Twitter (@Fake_Presidents) and Instagram (@Fake_Presidents) to join the conversation!

I had the honor of speaking to renowned and New York Times best-selling author Whitley Strieber. He began his writing career with a pair of modern-Gothic horror novels, The Wolfen (1981) and The Hunger (1983), which was turned into a feature film by the late great filmmaker Tony Scott.He is perhaps best known for the third phase of his career, which began with Communion (1989), an autobiographical account of his experiences with strange "visitors" who he says came to his cabin in the New York countryside. This #1 New York Times Non-Fiction Bestseller (on the list for 15 weeks) was also turned into a film starring Christopher Walken.Whitley has written several other thrillers, and two novels about environmental apocalypse, Nature's End and The Coming Global Superstorm. Superstorm served as an inspiration for Fox's The Day After Tomorrow (2004), and Strieber later penned the novelization of that film."Hate is like coal, it burns out. Love is like heat, it doesn't." - The Master of the KeyIn this episode, we will be discussing one of Whitley's most profound books, The Key: A True Encounter.At two-thirty in the morning of June 6, 1998, Whitley Streiber was awakened by somebody knocking on his hotel room door. A man came in, and everything he said was life-altering.This is the unsettling and ultimately enlightening narrative of what happened that night. Strieber was never really sure who this strange and knowing visitor was--a "Master of Wisdom"? A figure from a different realm of consciousness? A preternaturally intelligent being? He called him the Master of the Key. The one thing of which Strieber was certain is that both the man and the encounter were real.The main concern of the Master of the Key is to save each of us from self-imprisonment. "Mankind is trapped," the stranger tells Strieber. "I want to help you spring the trap." In a sweeping exchange between Strieber and the stranger--which takes the form of a classical student- teacher dialogue in pursuit of inner understanding--the unknown man presents a lesson in human potential, esoteric psychology, and man's fate. He illuminates why man has been caught in a cycle of repeat violence and self-destruction--and the slender, but very real, possibility for release.In its breadth and intimacy, The Key is on par with contemporary metaphysical traditions, such as A Course in Miracles, or even with the dialogues of modern wisdom teachers, such as D.T. Suzuki and Carl Jung.It was a pleasure speaking to Whitley. Enjoy!
