I wrote this article at the end of August 2019 for my my Future of Communications newsletter — free subscription here. It has received a lot of attention — my second major “hit” together with WWG1WGA: The greatest communications event in history from July 2018.
I have created this minisite so that people making sense of “The Storm” for the first time can easily read and share the content. You can also hear me read this article, watch an interview of me discussing its content, or read it in German.
In the last few weeks my thoughts have drifted towards the events of this autumn that are going to shake our world. We have seen all the pieces being put in place for a mass justice event in the USA — the like of which has never been encountered before.
I wish to share a few thoughts on how you might go about preparing for the “expected unexpected”.
LARGE SCALE CHANGE HAPPENS
It is not a novel insight to point out that major geopolitical change is an ongoing process. Key events in living memory would include:
- 1970s — oil shock; Vietnam War
- 1980s — deregulation; sudden end of the Soviet empire
- 1990s — Gulf War; dotcom boom and bust
- 2000s — 9/11 + Iraq War; financial collapse
Here in the late 2010s, it is arguable that we are seeing the decline and end of Globalism, together with many supporting institutions and doctrines. Whilst the counter-trend is labelled Nationalism by the media, it is better seen as anti-authoritarianism. The demand is for power be held closer to the people, rather than by an unaccountable political establishment.
Anti-globalism is the narrative that joins together otherwise seemingly disparate events — mass protests in Hong Kong, Brexit in the UK, a “cold” civil war in France, a new government in Brazil, and the Trump administration in the USA. Working people are tired of extreme wealth disparities, declining standards of living, and mass migration causing cultural upheaval.
Most of all, ordinary people demand an end to their exploitation through endemic corruption. Specifically, a two-tier justice system has evolved where a privileged class can easily evade consequences for their thieving behaviour. This powerful stateless mafia — which controls many important political, financial, media and industrial institutions — now faces removal and justice.
CORRUPTION: THE WORLD’S BIGGEST INDUSTRY
We have seen a number of corruption scandals break recently, including:
- Pharma — illegal pushing of addictive opiates to the public
- Banking — LIBOR scandal, US mortgage fraud, 1MDB in Malaysia that may take down Goldman Sachs by the time it’s done
- Industrials — huge accounting fraud at GE
- Google — involvement in espionage and treason on behalf of China
- Hollywood — Weinstein is a foretaste of its (child) rape culture being exposed
- Social Media — large-scale rigging of elections
- Catholic Church — cover-up of child abuse
Now that the Mueller investigation has collapsed into nothing of consequence, there are at least six major scandals about to break in Washington DC:
- Pedogate — Epstein Island and the blackmail operations associated with it (NXIVM, SNCTM); UK royal family’s involvement plus MI6; Israel and Mossad’s dirty role; Hollywood’s elite (notably at Disney) are up to their necks in this filth.
- Spygate — Obama personally authorising illegal FISA spying on the Trump administration, before and after the election. Draws FVYE spy network nations into the scandal, especially Britain.
- Russiagate failed coup attempt — Brennen, Clapper, Comey, Ohr, etc. — are all going to hang for treason. Italy has already cleaned house on this one, having been implicated in the set-up.
- Election fraud in 2016 and 2018 by Democratic party (and for many years before). May trigger the unseating of many in the House and special elections.
- Clinton Foundation — sale of state secrets to China; Haiti human trafficking (cf Epstein).
- Uranium One — illegal sale of US nuclear material to Russia (which draws Mueller into his own scandal…).
Corruption is a widespread phenomenon. Anti-corruption initiatives have a long history. Multinational business has been a thing for centuries. That there might be a coordinated multi-country corruption purge should not be a matter of great controversy.
It is the confluence of so many simultaneous major scandals that is what gives #TheStorm its moniker and “black swan” outlier status. It will sweep away some compromised institutions, and put many previously untouchable people in jail. This is a paradigm change in government and business, restoring trust and honour that have been missing for decades.
THE END OF THE AMERICAN ‘DEEP STATE’
Whether it has been the East India Company, the Venetians, or the Spanish in South America, international trade has always allied to intelligence gathering — and trodden a fine line between legitimate commerce and organised crime (e.g. the opium wars, theft of gold).
To understand #TheStorm we need to recognise that the problem of a two-tier justice system itself comes from transnational crime cartels. Corruption has its own business model, strategies, and organisational design patterns. “Institutionalised crime” syndicates are often of a military-like nature, with power coming from spying, clandestine operations, subversion, esoteric science, and deception.
That power is tied to specific families and secret societies, many being in Europe and Asia. From its founding, the United States has been fighting against fifth columnists, who were often working on behalf of European banking, aristocratic, and religious powers. They have used their military intelligence networks to infiltrate American institutions and install their own people — who often become celebrated as quintessentially “American” in the process!
Three notable and well-documented events from the 1940s-1970s paint the contextual picture:
- Operation Paperclip imported thousands of key members of the German Nazi regime into important scientific, academic and military posts after WW2.
- Operation Northwoods showed the (corrupted) US Government was willing to use “false flag” attacks by its military against its own people for its geopolitical ends.
- Operation Mockingbird weaponised the US mass media against its own population, using agents who were covertly under the control of the CIA, a rogue intelligence agency under criminal leadership.
An unconstitutional private central bank — the Federal Reserve — was able to print as much money as necessary to bribe whoever it saw fit. This funded the activities of allied crooked banks, media companies, and military-industrial corporations. Collectively these “Deep State” actors over time compromised the US judicial, legal, and political systems — and subverted the Constitution.
TRUMP’S DE FACTO MILITARY GOVERNMENT
Once civilian institutions are too compromised, the only remaining way of peacefully reversing these changes is via the military. Trump is far more than a figurehead, but to focus on him alone is to miss the big picture. He is the most visible part of a multi-decade Patriot plan to retake the country from the bankster criminals, and give it back to its people.
The Trump administration explicitly advertises itself as not just another 4 year election cycle — “Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new Government controlled by you the American people.” It would be wise to take Trump and his generals very literally when they state their intentions, as their lives are on the line.
You can see Trump’s closeness to the military with:
- His inauguration — where he unusually and symbolically had soldiers appear behind him.
- Choices of personnel, being surrounded by generals, especially from the Marines.
- The famous “calm before the storm” remark, as he is often pictured with his senior military team on social occasions.
- Focus on celebrating the military and its independence from foreign control for the 4th July celebrations this year.
- His links to Admiral Rogers and General Flynn who know where the bodies are buried and have been involved in the resulting intrigue.
A deeply embedded crime network has had effective control over the US DoJ, FBI, and CIA — as illustrated by the Clintons’ magical escapes from justice. A similar purge of corruption and taming of the Federal Reserve was attempted under JFK, and failed. The protection that the President needs can only come from a loyal military.
The “Q” programme of open source intelligence to bypass the compromised mass media is further evidence that this is a de facto military government with a civilian varnish. The legal and justice systems are being cleaned up, and the “pioneer public” primed for stunning revelations that will shake the foundations of society.
#TheStorm IS ABOUT TO MAKE LANDFALL
Sessions, Durham, Huber, Horowitz, Rosenstein, Barr — there are objective reasons to believe that large DoJ legal teams have been quietly working for a considerable period under these leaders. Their task is to indict those responsible for the scandals listed earlier. The job of some of these teams is complete, according to the DoJ website.
There has already been a record-breaking surge of indictments, arrests and convictions for human trafficking. There has also been extensive building work done at Guantanamo Bay, and a new senior judge has been appointed for military tribunals there. There is an enabling executive order on courts martial, and federal capital punishment has been reinstated. The President has made many proclamations on the treasonous nature of the offences, and that they must never recur.
What is going to happen in late 2019 and into early 2020 is that multiple connected scandals are all going to break in fast succession. They will involve crimes against humanity, and horrors we had hoped had ended with the Nazis, Chairman Mao, or Pol Pot. A recurring theme from insider leaks is that the trials are going to be televised as a kind of “Nuremberg 2.0”.
Trump is not a politician. #TheStorm is not politics. This is about fixing the framework in which politics happens. #TheStorm is a restoration of the American Republic under control of its citizens, and the Constitutional rule of law. The conspiracies against the people are very real, and their prosecution is now inevitable.
WHO ELSE? WHAT ELSE? WHERE ELSE?
These events are going to be a shock to most of the public, who have been lulled into complacency by a media conspiracy of silence. They will be scared and confused, since they will not know whom to trust, how bad the situation has been, or whether it is sufficiently contained.
Now is the time that forward-looking leaders can begin to prepare, so you can honestly state that this is on your radar, and you are taking proactive steps to manage the situation. There is ample evidence of this being a very real and serious situation, and to ignore it is irresponsible.
We can be reasonably certain that the following will experience major impacts from #TheStorm:
- Political foundations that are used to launder bribes and payoffs (e.g. under the cover of “book deals”).
- Charities that are nothing of the kind, being covers for illegal activities.
- NGOs that have a covert purpose (e.g. Red Cross involvement in organ harvesting plus human trafficking).
- Multi-national corporations who are using slave labour, or have operations in certain politically risky countries (e.g. Apple being forced to repatriate manufacturing from China).
- Financial industry players, with many banks having large fraud liabilities. It is no secret that some like Bank of America, Citibank, HSBC, Wells Fargo, and Deutsche Bank face trouble, having over-indulged in nefarious business practises.
- Media industry, which faces a cataclysmic loss of trust by the public as its past misdeeds and methods get exposed to the light.
- Telecoms and IT, which is the foundation for a great deal of espionage. Amazon is tainted by its CIA associations; Google faces a total brand meltdown.
- Energy, as a great deal of corruption is tied to oil and gas extraction and commodity trading, as well as the push for renewables driven by illegitimate concerns.
#TheStorm will reveal three scams that are each trillions of dollars in scope that will further damage the reputation of the media, academia, government, and religious bodies:
- War-for-profit (drawing in banks, arms industry, and public and private intelligence agencies).
- Carbon tax (there is no “climate emergency”).
- Fraud through foreign aid.
SO WHAT AND WHAT NEXT?
This is a “trust apocalypse”: those who you were taught were most worthy of trust will repeatedly be proven to have betrayed it. Conversely, you will discover who the truly trustworthy are, as the lies and scams are exposed.
Confronting something of this magnitude in our own lifetimes can seem rather daunting. The MBA strategy books focus mainly on the positive creation of value in the legitimate economy. Where we touch on fraud and crime it comes clearly boundaried in topics like “revenue assurance” and “business continuity planning”.
The collapse of a longstanding massive network of organised crime that intersects with every sector has no precedent. There isn’t a chapter for this kind of scenario in the textbooks. We just know that the November 2020 election cycle is a forcing function: the “swamp” needs to be exposed before then — so that the public is clamouring for total drainage.
To deal with this situation, here are some initial suggestions as to how you can take action now:
- Get your own personal affairs in order as a hygiene factor. You can’t be sorting out other people’s problems if your own are a distraction. Clear the decks of anything optional or troublesome.
- Set your moral compass now. Those who thrive post-Storm will have different values to those who prospered before it. Be very clear with yourself what you and your organisation truly stand for, and what isn’t changing and is non-negotiable.
- Expand your information sources. The mass media has become compromised by decades of infiltration and corruption. They are complicit in serious crime, if only via a conspiracy of silence, and cannot tell you the whole story. You need to look to alternative sources of journalism and analysis for an accurate picture.
- Build your human network. Consider creating a temporary and informal organisation to track and make sense of these changes. Use a “who knows, who cares, who can” model to draw in those sufficiently informed, motivated and resourced to act voluntarily and on their own initiative.
- Manage your exposure. Start to manage your risk of exposure to Deep State aligned companies and sectors. Think about the most important business contracts you have and whether they are robust enough for this kind of outlier business event. Begin to plan contingencies for disruptions on both your supply and demand sides.
- Map the possible opportunities. This is going to be a one-off opportunity to acquire talent from tainted institutions, buy up businesses at distressed prices, and occupy vacated market roles whose previous holders have been razed by #TheStorm. Making good enough moves quickly is likely to beat waiting for perfect certainty. Start making your shopping list.

I offer my labour for free to the MAGA movement, but that doesn’t help me much when I get to the supermarket checkout. I also spend many hours answering correspondence and helping people who reach out to me. There are also real costs in delivering high quality content — IT kit refreshes, accountant fees, travel to meet people, hosting costs, newsletter mailing list service, admin help, etc.
