Before the Nirvana now known as the land of Trumptopia, the current regime had the Doomer Community and Alt-Media in full blown meltdown, with many fearing that Obama would never leave office, the Republicans would nominate a Romney clone, and the Illuminati would ensure that America would stay subservient to the New World Order.
Here is an example from January 2015, and one Alex Jones for example:
One election later, here’s Alex again:
I have one question for Alex however; if your boy, Donald Trump has prevented World War III, stopped the Illuminati, and saved America from the New World Order, then why would I need “Infowars Prime?” Or another water filter?
But I digress.
Let’s analyze everything that has happened and the shocking realization that I have foreseen which will piss off my friends, advertisers, fellow survivalists, and the Doomer industry as a whole. I have witnessed this industry first hand and folks, let me tell you, it is no different from any other business; as long as there is a supply of fear, there is demand for goods and information to prevent the user from being a victim of the doom being presented.
So how did Donald J. Trump, America’s President-Elect, single handily destroy the doomer industry with one election in one day?
That’s easy enough to answer as many message boards, keyboard warriors, podcasters, shortwave radio Patriot broadcasters, doomer religious groups, and survivalist news aggregators all bet the farm and endorsed Donald Trump with some of the most insane statements and news stories in American history.
Wow. Even Trump didn’t claim this mantle, but the misguided souls who did will soon find out that Trump is just a man.
For the sake of argument, let’s agree with all the message boards, radio programs, bloggers, weird news aggregators, etc. You know, the ones that said Ted Cruz was a Canadian, Jeb Bush was funded by the bankers, and the mainstream media was put in charge of selecting our next Republican nominee.
If Donald Trump delivers on all the promises he stated that these individuals supported him for, why do I need to buy the products from their sponsors?
If gold is diving to $800 per ounce (as I speculated) and silver to $10 per oz., because President Trump cranks up the dormant economy and the dollar surges in strength, why would I invest in physical or paper precious metal investments that may lose me even more money?
What do I need with another water filter?
What makes these survivalists think that I need their vitamins as much when I can buy regular vitamins and go to the doctor again because Obamacare is repealed and my health care becomes affordable?
Why would anyone donate to a message board owner claiming he needs a new server if the same message board owner supports and believes that Trump’s election will save America and prevent disaster and destruction?
Since the risks of World War III are now diminished with President Trump in office, why should I buy long term food storage, radiation detection equipment, or night vision unless I think North Korea can successfully invade us?
Hell, according to all these supporters of Trump unicorns will poop dollar bills and Skittles on my house and this time they are edible, unlike the liberal one’s the Obama unicorn spewed everywhere.
Lastly, why should I add to my arsenal now? Gun prices will crash just like the gun manufacturer’s stock prices have since his election:
Granted, there has been a dead cat low volume bounce off the high volume sell-off, but the smart money knows; if the average American does not have to worry about gun confiscation, five to twenty-five weapons in their personal arsenal will be enough. Ahem, not me, I only one one or two, ahem.
And if one does not need to buy firearms right away, one does not need to add to their stash of 20,000 or 50,000 rounds of ammunition. One does not need another case of nasty Asian Beef Tips MRE’s. One does not need another case of daily survival bars. Etc…
The very advertising base which built and financed the doomer industry will now faces its own economic depression. I’ve spoken with individuals who are firearms dealers and they gambled and lost. Many stocked up on firearms before the election anticipating a Hillary Clinton victory and expected to reap 50% plus profits on assault rifles which were to be banned plus much more on high-capacity magazines, ammunition, and other firearm accessories. Now they are stuck with inventory which will probably see a 20-30% retail price decline in just the few months ahead.
In the end, many radio programs will cease to exist as these advertisers pull back and rely solely on internet advertising. Many podcasts and websites will also disappear, and of course, many of the mega-doomer big names will feel the pinch because President Trump in 2017 will initially deliver on many of the promises from his campaign.
I was asked about this in a discussion with a gun shop owner in Florida today and I responded quite logically:
If you were putting off taking your child to a theme park in Florida or your family on a nice vacation because you had planned on spending $4,000 dollars on food, arms, and survival gear but now your job seems safe and your family needs a break from 8 years of doom and depression, what would you do if the Trump election gave you the economic “all clear?” The obvious, with family and fun first, and take a break from the fear of the New World Order or a Bilderberg bogeyman snatching your children to enslave them forever.
Reality will set in. Many who profited in the patriot and doom industry will be gone by the end of 2017 or early 2018 as the economy becomes unrestrained under the Trump administration.
It’s almost is if the election of Donald Trump was designed by the New World Order to eliminate all of the suppliers and voices of the resistance, but that’s too wild of a conspiracy so let’s all plan our 2017 vacations.
