The 2016 Predictions Thread
Anybody who wants to make predictions on future events for the year to come, feel free to put them here.

My predictions:

- The United Kingdom will narrowly vote (within 5% margin) to remain in the European Union.

- ISIS will successfully carry out at least one large-scale terrorist attack in both Europe and the United States.

- Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination but will lose to Hillary Clinton, due to a concerted effort by the Republican establishment to undermine his campaign (including by running a independent candidacy.)

- Related to the above, in the wake of this loss the Republican conservative base will begin to split off and ultimately create a new, nationalist-conservative oriented party, while the Republican Party will be reduced to a rump of elitist, pro-corporate coastal moderates. 2016 will be the last US election with a united right-wing party for at least several election cycles.

- There will be a large decline in global stock market valuations, but not a sudden crash.

- The political notion of the nationalism-globalism divide will become mainstream and begin to augment, if not replace the traditional left/right dialectic.

- The Syria peace talks in Vienna will fail to produce a meaningful agreement.

- RVF will see its "wartime rules" policy implemented at least once.

- Donald Trump will publicly utter the word 'cuckservative' in reference to his establishment opponents.

- The United States will enter into a recession in 2016.

- The price of oil will drop to below $20/barrel.

RE: The 2016 Predictions Thread
-race relations will continue to detioriate in the U.S. and for the foreseeable future until it reaches critical mass.

-we'll see more sympathetic views towards IRT on rvf and maybe some open IRT sympathizers.

-The pendulum has started to swing right in the U.S. you can expect to see more SJW type extremist views being mocked or discredited.

-The mainstream media will continue to be bought and paid for shills by the usual powers that be.

-The middle class will get squeezed even harder and fail to grow. Expect the numbers to be fudged if this is the case.

-There will be another military conflict that the U.S. just "has" to get involved in.

-Islam as a whole will take a big hit in 2016.

-illegal immigration will continue largely unabated in the U.S. and the E.U. but it will become less of a story item as first world a.d.d. sets in.

-Merkel will come out as a lesbian.

Sweden will face the verge of some sort of internal collapse/disturbance and need the help of the EU community to prevent it.

RE: The 2016 Predictions Thread
Poland gets very destabilized from growing liberalization, nationalism, social anxiety, and external social pressures which cause violent social contractions that lead to some possibility of Russian intervention.

Poland starts to be wary of the whole world, East and West, after a long history of having its sovereignty undermined by influencing factors from both sides. There will be a bigger Polish military and an agitation to become a stronger power.

Some major event (ISIS attack, congressman assassinated, etc.) will cause Obama to "postpone" the elections for a few years until things "return to normal".

Theatre attendance in the US will continue to drop rapidly due to streaming services, 4k TVs and increasingly abysmal films.

Coverage of the election will catalyze the development of smaller and more focused news services, putting them in a position to challenge traditional MSM in the coming years.

Google might roll out a chrome phone, but only to test the waters since they wouldn't want to encroach on the android market share.

Open source projects that offer alternatives to google and Microsoft's suite of email and storage utilities will increase in popularity.

Russian intervention in Poland, essentially = WWIII. Too much for Putin. Plus, unlike in Ukraine, ethnic Russians are not a sizable minority in Poland and there's also no linguistic connection (ethnic poles that speak Russian) or economic ties like trade partnerships. Ukraine has that split between east and west where half of the country has very sympathetic views towards Russia and the other half is more pro european. Again, Poland has none of that. It would be more likely for this type of scenario to unfold in one of the Baltic states but again, that's NATO territory. I think that between Ukraine and Syria, Putin has enough to keep him busy.

RE: The 2016 Predictions Thread
- Hillary (or Democrats) will win the elections. (ps: Trump, the more he talks, the more he fucks up)

- The Syrian war will not resolve, but instead complicate. It'll leak more and more. Turkey from the Kurdish side. Lebanon/Israel. Jordan. It'll spread more in Libya and maybe Alegria. No big changes. Just leaking more and more.

- Mass Immigration to the EU will continue. But serious effects are yet to happen or be understood.

- Iran will re-immerge again from the dust. The country has big potential. It'll start changing the game in the middle east with the weakening of gulf nations due to oil prices.

- Oil under $30 and possibly $20. Many nations will start doing crazy cuts (after crazy spending). Many industries just "disappear". Many people go from "rich" to "middle/poor". Millions go back home from the gulf nations.

- Bitcoin well over $1,000 a piece (potentially $5,000). The blockchain starts to gain massive momentum and interest both from private companies and from governments.

- A big tech-IPO happens (potentially uber). Three or more new startups are valued well over $1bn. The tech craze, the cloud $$$ goes higher than ever. Tech giants (Apple, MSFT, Google, Facebook) trade higher than ever believed to be possible.

- Girls will start posting selfies of their pussies on the toilet. They'll compete on which has the nicest pussy, clit size, colours, etc...

Poland will continue moving in a more Orbanisk direction politically.

Self driving cars become legal in some juristiction and come on the market in a limited way.

France gets attacked again.

Assad has a good year goes a long way to taking back his country.

In the US Hillary wins, with the help of the cucks & neocohens. Trump-kins become livid. A lot of trump supporters start asking questions that lead to alt right.

Merkal stays in power.

Lolwtf

Quote:- Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination but will lose to Hillary Clinton, due to a concerted effort by the Republican establishment to undermine his campaign (including by running a independent candidacy.)

- Related to the above, in the wake of this loss the Republican conservative base will begin to split off and ultimately create a new, nationalist-conservative oriented party, while the Republican Party will be reduced to a rump of elitist, pro-corporate coastal moderates. 2016 will be the last US election with a united right-wing party for at least several election cycles.

This is actually why I think they don't do it. They know that if this happens they will never be able to win again. It's easy to say they'd rather have globalist Democrats in power than nationalist Republicans, but power has a way of drawing people to it. They'll think that the Democrats are just not implementing globalism properly and only they can do it.

That's all I can really say on that matter.

Any rate, for whatever these predictions are worth:

- Angela Merkel will cling on to power but may become the most unpopular chancellor in German history and essnetially a lame duck
- Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination and will (probably) choose Ted Cruz as his running mate. From that point forward it's anyone's guess.
- Partly through our efforts, nationalism vs. globalism will become more apparent.
- Also partly through our efforts, you will start to see more local organized resistance to the globalists.
- The invasion of Europe will continue, but I'm not sure how many will wind up coming. Could be less due to the "deal" with Turkey, could be even more.
- The Libyan and Syrian agreements will fail.
- The US will continue to be discredited in the Middle East and Russia will fill the vacuum.
- A recession won't happen as the Fed will try to keep the pony show running to influence the election.
- Skepticism toward Islam will grow.
- SJW's will be further discredited but will get more militant as they continue to get off their computers and take to the streets.
- Universities continue to become groupthink factories as coups and suspensions occur. Some universities may essentially be taken over by SJW military juntas.
- The EU referendum won't be held until 2017.

At any rate, it's fun to try to predict the future, but chaos theory rules and a single event can fuck up the entire equation, so try not to be too serious. The only thing you can predict is what you yourself are doing.

- Russia/West conflict escalates even further. Putin purges the civiliks from his ranks.
- Ukraine will have another pro-west regime replace this one.
- Chinese ruling party will tighten it's grip on power as the economic future grows more uncertain.
- The establishment in France will try to smear / imprison Le Pens by any means necessary.
- Militias formed of native people will start patrolling areas worst affected by the refugee crisis. We'll see at least couple of cases of people taking law into their own hands to punish foreign perpetrators (Probably some high profile rape case of a native by a refugee).
- Divide between western and eastern states of EU will deepen, with events set in motion that will in time have Poland lead other former FSU countries into a separate union from the western countries.
- As the manosphere grows in it's profile, those of us reading and posting to sites such as these in secret will start seeing progressives shame people around them for having neomasculine symphaties or for reading sites such as RoK. Think as you like, but behave like others, will become an even more important note to remember.

RE: The 2016 Predictions Thread
High schools will start to ban dances, homecomings, and proms for being too "heteronormative" and therefore discriminatory and "violent" towards the feelings of others.

They'll also ban homecoming and prom queens because of sexism. The schools that don't ban prom queens, will alter the "prom court" concept. Instead of the hottest girls being queens and princesses, teens will have to vote for girls who fit new progressive designations such as "plus-sized princess," "transgender temptation," or "hottie in a hijab."

All of these iconic American traditions will be replaced with "pansexual playtimes," where kids will be encouraged and then eventually required to explore the "boundaries" of their sexuality.

While there will be no direct rule enforcing homosexuality, kids will soon learn that if quarterback Jacob decides to hold hands with tight end (hehe) Billy, their grades will shoot (heh) way up. Peer pressure will then change the game as we know it.

Before long, any boy seen walking hand-in-hand down a school hallway with a girl will be scored and derided as "oppressively cisgender." That boy will soon find himself with no friends, low grades, and perhaps even no future -- when the social media campaigns start their inevitable mockery.

Next comes mandatory "privilege points" deducted from the grades of all white male teenage boys, but I'm getting ahead of myself. That's not till around 2018.

All the while, the cuckservative Christian dads and moms than now make up Middle America will just go along with everything, like the sheeple they are. So long as they have their football, lottery, and beer, they'll be happy.

East Coast parents, of course, will find a way to have their preppie, college-bound kids "opt out" of all this, even though they were the ones who devised the whole monstrosity to begin with.

Merry Christmas, everybody!

Agree and disagree.

I think its going to be Hillary wins the election in such a naked, corrupt and underhanded way that the backlash will cause her to postpone elections and/or civil liberties 'for a few years until things return to normal'. This may or may not be assisted by a conveniently timed large ISIS attack on US soil shortly after she is illegally elected.

Congress will complain, but not actually do anything about it.

Trump will start his own cable news network in defiance.
