This week, we begin the publication of our 2022 Annual Wrap Up. Dr. Joseph P. Farrell joins me for Part I of News Trends & Stories; we will continue with Part II the following week.

In Part I, Dr. Farrell and I focus on the top 20 stories as well as what we have come to call “Bizarro World” headlines (particularly creepy stories, often designed to distract you and waste your time). Follow along on the web presentation; the link will be in your subscriber links when Part I publishes.

Here are our picks for the top 20 stories:

  1. The financial coup and the Going Direct Reset
  2. The Great Poisoning accelerates: “We are staring down the barrel of a mass atrocity”
  3. Department of Defense and their contractors: the war on us
  4. The proposed WHO coup
  5. More push for total control
  6. The petrodollar loses its “petro”
  7. War in Ukraine and the expansion of NATO
  8. The end of cheap money: a farewell to bubbles
  9. Whither the Anglo-American alliance: the reign of Queen Elizabeth II ends
  10. The productivity rebellion
  11. Jan. 6 Committee: the domestic terrorist trick bombs again
  12. Growth of the space-based economy
  13. BRICS continue to move toward currency alternatives
  14. China: Xi Jinping consolidates power
  15. Digital TV and smartphones are the most successful weapons of our day
  16. Democrats hold U.S. Senate in defiance of all exit polls
  17. Weird weather: droughts, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes
  18. FBI pays rich social media companies to censor taxpayers—using taxpayers’ money
  19. IRS proposes to hire more IRS agents than all U.S. tax preparers
  20. Glorious pushback all year long—and rising

In Part II, Dr. Farrell and I will review what these stories and trends mean to you in the context of your daily lives and work during 2023 using our Building Wealth framework.

The theme for the 2022 Annual Wrap Up is “Pharma Food,” a trend that includes lab-grown meat and synthetic food. This will require all of the pushback each of us can muster—starting with ongoing, committed support for our local farmers and fishermen—if we wish to retain access to food that is healthy, fresh, and real.

After publishing the two parts of News Trends & Stories, we will continue with my final Equity Overview for 2022. The following week, I will talk with Dutch new media journalist Elze van Hamelen. I asked Elze to investigate and write Pharma Food; the final Wrap Up will feature her elegant and comprehensive write-up of her unsettling findings.

Recognizing that each person’s circumstances are unique, we hope, as always, that our discussion will guide you toward solutions, helping you determine actions you can take and tactics that are right for you.

Money & Markets

In Money & Markets this week, John Titus and I will cover the latest events and continue to discuss the financial and geopolitical trends we are tracking in 2023—and the growing pushback against corruption. Post questions at the Money & Markets commentary here.
