7 Signs Civil War Is About To Happen In The U.S.



7 Signs Civil War is About to Happen In The U.S.

I don’t know about you, but to me, it seems like America is more divided than ever. At least more divided than I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. And with next year’s presidential election, this is likely to get even worse. Is it possible there could be a second Civil War in the United States?

Nearly a third of Americans think so. Many polls have shown that a third of the country expects another Civil War within the next five years. Hopefully, that will never happen, but I think it would be wise to prepare for the possibility and watch for signs that it’s about to happen.

In this video, City Prepping identifies 7 signs that a new Civil War is about to happen soon. Here’s what he came up with:

  1. Increasing Partisanship
  2. Dysfunctional Governance
  3. Impeachment and Coup Rhetoric
  4. Widening Wealth Gap
  5. Further Entrenching Oligarchy
  6. Rise of Extremist Ideologies
  7. Artificial Intelligence

Watch the video below for a detailed breakdown of these signs and how to identify them.

    America….will we be a banana republic or a Republic guided by a fair representation of a “protected” vote? Both sides need to protect the vote, but I don’t see that at this time. Sad.

    When you take 1 argument out of a debate everyone starts to think the same. The main reason there is unrest is our country is that politicians let the college campuses remove the other side of a point of view, (the conservative). Now over 2 decades of our youth not having a healthy debate, pulling them to the middle ground. They naturally get pulled to the fringes of the democrat party. And now they have grown into adults with the point of view of I always get my way because know body is there to argue from the other point of view, & I’ll throw a temper tantrum when I hear or see something I dont agree with.
    Its sad but all these people will never give the other side respect to be heard. That is why we must hold university’s accountable for allowing this to happen, and start hiring conservative professors again, at at-least a 50/50 split, not a 95/5 split. This has been going on for decades, and this is how countries fall, its unhealthy to ones self to have to always get your way. We all have to compromise some to be able to live with each other and respect the other point of view. Everybody has a different life, beliefs, morals, and goals, dont force others to be different then who they are as people. And only judge people for what they do and who they are, not what color their skin is, the identity politics and virtue signaling has to stop. To many people are being offended and at some point its going to push us to explode. If its not clear already, we are being guided in this downward spiral, we must find out who has the most to gain, and the liberal media has to know that answer!

    I weep for my country as it Quickly becomes a place that I just don’t recognize anymore. We are so divided and I can’t but think that this has been by design. We sanction the wholesale slaughter of children (past 60 million by my last reckoning). I think this nation has surpassed most of the vilest despots put together. We are still at war in the Middle East and yet our media says not a word. It has been found out that the Chinese government’s cover up of the Corona virus is yet another hallmark of that system’s tyranny. Not “bat made” but man made in a lab with slipshod safety protocols. Our response has been no better; hunker down and hide. We have experts giving advice that’s as antiquated as most of them. No it’s to easy to sit tight and wait for yet another “miracle cure” that in the end could be used as a identification method for marginalization. God forbid we use that which big pharma wants to hide from the public: better nutrition, a decent work day, an eight hour nite’s sleep, & an ounce of common sense. I know we will implode, it’s just a question of hearing the echo of already exploded ordinance.

      The fact that you immediately jump into the Pro-Life dogma clearly represents the major problem in this nation. YOU and many others see only one side- you think you are absolutely right and everyone else is wrong. You don’t see a middle ground on your key issues because of your religion, race or upbringing- and that is what divides us all. Next time you want to point the finger, turn it upon yourself my friend.

    I can see a Civil War coming between the Socialist/Democrats and Americans (Notice Democrats are NOT Americans). Think back to 2016 when Trump won. The whiny Socialists/Democrats took to the streets and in many places riots took place. When President Trump wins Re-Election in 2020, multiple what happened in 2016 by 1000-fold. Will it be house to house fighting? No. More like area to area. We all know areas that are more Liberal/Socialist and other areas that are Normal American/Conservative.
    The problem will be that while America is fighting itself, other bad actors in the world will run amok (China, Russia, Iran, North Korea). Those 4 countries could and would side with the Socialist/Democrats. Those countries also could invade other countries and even the USA and add to the chaos.
    Do I wish for Civil War? Hell no.
    Can I see it happen? Yup.

    • Shaun on January 20, 2020 at 10:22 am

      You think a huge section of the population aren’t real Americans? No wonder we’re so divided. You show definitely items signs of a fascist mentality, and I suspect you’re proud of that. Well, my Democrat grandfather fought in WWII against the fascists, even spent the last months of the war in a POW camp in Germany. Fascism is a blight on civilization, and yet your president is a perfect example of it. I weep for our country and the children who will grow up in this kind of environment.

      • Jeff on August 19, 2020 at 3:10 pm

        The democratic party of the 40’s that your Grandfather was proud of, is NOT the democratic party of today. They should just quit the name and be proud socialists as that is all they talk about now
        Bless your grandfather

        • Ultra Skeptic on August 22, 2020 at 7:13 am

          You guys should all get a grip. The Dem’s aren’t what they were, true. But neither are the Repub’s. Nor is the country, nor the world. Things change, circumstances change, but human ignorance remains a constant factor in the self-destruction of societies throughout history and, regrettably, on into the future. While I’m no fan of Dumocrats, it was the rich Republigoons who sent our industry and technology off to China so they could personally make a quick buck. And now China is the leading world power. We can take credit for making it so, but what does that say for us? And what does it say for greed, selfishness, and cupidity? In case you don’t get the answer, the answer is that human nature can be very destructive of the tribe when it responds to the lusts of individuals who are focused only on themselves and their own satisfaction.

      • Petnurse on August 22, 2020 at 6:52 pm

        The mere statement of “your president” makes you the one who is divided and Not American. He is the President of the United States of America. So much anger on the left. Sadness on the right to see what radical liberals have proposed we all should live like. Whackadoodles. You do you sir, but don’t force me to do the same. I weep as well, I don’t want the out of touch narratives forced upon my children. Both parties have made mistakes, but very very wealthy men with a hard on for the New World Order will take advantage of this mess and suggest The Great Reset. Mark your calendar for September 17, the anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. So now is the time to stop electing officials who took handouts from people who want America destroyed. On both sides! Those men divided us NOT Trump.. He can’t be bought that is why they hate him so very much. He is ruining the path paved by those terrorists. They hated him before he did one day in office. No real reason for it..so they started slapping labels on him, like every good liberal does. Then the lemmings just jump off the cliff and believe what the media and the mob tell them to believe. We are distracted then manipulated and when they (those who voted for a Biden administration) get what they think they want, I hope they’re content with it. Civil War will be Democracy against Communism/Marxism. Research the ideals of BLM, who by the way is funding Binden’s..I mean Mr Harris’ (she’ll be wearing the pants in that relationship) campaign through Act Blue. Maybe look into The Good Club. You don’t think they will have to pay them back by writing laws that progress that agenda? What will it look like when we have to depend on the government. Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country. It’s actually the individual states that make the biggest decisions, especially when Covid is concerned.

        My governor is unlawfully enforcing mask mandates like many others across the country. They are closing down the states which results in our increased unemployment rate. It was at record lows before that. Anyone who listens to the Dems when they say he is the cause of the collapse of the economy is duped. Very few world leaders did a great job on the dealings with this virus, but it’s probably Trump’s fault. Everything is. Actually go back and look at how events unfolded. Pelosi in China Town come on down, it’s the flu. Trump closes boarders he’s the bad orange man who’s racist. Then they say he didn’t close the boarders fast enough. Now he’s been hiding in a bunker? Really? Biden’s been in his basement for months, they can’t even let him do interviews with the press because he is mentally incompetent.

        Need another example of the lunacy? Dig in to the repercussions of The Green New Deal…maybe ask California how they are feeling about renewable energy this week. Or the history of socialism. Try Critical Race Theory that they are teaching to K-12 on.

        Great cities across the US are being destroyed by terrorists and no one is doing anything about it, because those Democrats are bought and paid for. Owned. Trump offers help and they say they have it under control. Meanwhile the citizen are being terrorized. Republicans are scared to stand up to them. It already looks more like Libya than Portland. What is it now, 86 days? Something like that. I had to stop paying attention when a man who was coming to the Aid of a transgender person being robbed was beaten almost to death then round house kicked in the head by a member of the crowd that was supposed to be for demanding social justice. Probably not seen on very many news channels. It’s “mostly” peaceful there. It’s disgusting is what it is.

        The cancel culture that is perpetuated proves that those who participate in the decline of this great country by ignoring what doesn’t fit into their narrative has to be used against everyone if they don’t get theyre way. Their perception is THE only reality.

        Race is being used as a political weapon by the left. So convenient that as soon as the general public started rising up against the lockdown, those reckless bastards! George Floyd died, but now the whole tape has been released and it was all a lie, black on black murder and abortion of black babies isn’t worth fighting for, doesn’t fit the narrative. Distraction!! Opportunity!!

        Would you like a list of the racist remarks, I mean real racist remarks, that Binden has spouted off through his political career? They are not looking out for anyone.

        Biden: “we choose truth over facts” look up what BLM creators agenda is, then think about the statement.

        Nothing Trump is doing can remotely compare to the nightmare we will live if Binden is elected. He is the ultimate puppet. And the Never-Trumpers will vote for Biden just because they don’t like him. It’s not a popularity contest, it’s about policy. And in 44 years Biden has accomplished nothing but getting wealthy, and probably sexually abusing women and children.

        Wow, guess I had to get that off my chest. CanT put it on Facebook, I’ll be in Facebook jail, and probably lose my job. See, I live in a fairly progressive and extremely corrupt democratic state so I can’t express my opinions publicly.

      • Scott Edgell on August 27, 2020 at 5:08 pm

        Obama was the fascist and the schools from elementary to universities are trying to teach the youth to be liberals and fascists. I work with young kids, and when a child disagrees with a liberal teacher on a liberal subject, the child is written up and sent to the principals office for not following what the teaches protocol is.

  7. Brenda Eiland on October 21, 2019 at 9:22 pm

    Thank you for making it so clear. I had begun to make a list, but yours is all I need.

  8. poorman on September 26, 2019 at 5:48 pm

    Sorry to pop bubbles but there can’t and won’t be a civil war. I could see a race war but not civil. The last civil war had 2 sides and 2 entire different regions the north and the south. A civil war between Republicans and Democrats would have to be house to house and there would have to be a clear objective ( slavery and States Rights were the cause of the first) which there isn’t . It just isn’t going to happen folks.

    • Hinkel on October 21, 2019 at 11:43 am

      Correct. It’s more likely that we just get civil unrest and then martial law. Martial law will spark a revolution. Also, the American Civil war wasn’t an actual civil war. It was a war between two sovereign nations…

  9. Patricia Moffat on September 22, 2019 at 10:16 am

    If a civil war occurs it will be due entirely to trump, he incites hatred and racism and the complicit gop does nothing

    • Tina Tanker on September 24, 2019 at 10:40 pm

      I couldn’t agree more!

      • Pete on September 25, 2019 at 11:44 pm

        You attribute to Mr. Trump, who has been in office only these last three years, what is actually the accumulation of the last several decades of misuse, mishandling, corruption an greed by other administrations mostly those of left leaning liberal agendas. This is not to say that the Conservative Right shouldn’t be held responsible of their actions.
        Fact is we have become a divided culture an people. Mr. Trump isn’t responsible for that. We are. YOU choose the what side your on today, YOU DID.
        What now comes out of our future is from OUR choices. Our current choices seem to be pushing us into a second Civil War. More likely a second American Revolution. Neither are a good endgame.
        We must find our way to a return of the middle ground. It’s our true strength and there are few Conservative an Liberal Constitutionalist remaining to man it.

        • Kenny on September 28, 2019 at 7:10 pm

          Couldn’t agree with yo any more. Truth is Trump Loves America! It’s about time the rest of Government shows how much they Love America and try to work with him instead of against Him!

    • Mr. D on September 26, 2019 at 10:49 am

      That’s funny, I blame disgusting behavior of the Democratic Party for all the hatred. He wasn’t even in office before liberal extremists we’re rioting and destroying the cities that they call home, Calling him a racist for the past three years without a shred of evidence, and spending the last three years trying to impeach him instead of working with him to better our country. I was a Democrat until this last election, but watching a political party turn into petulant children changed my vote. Good luck to us all

      I voted for him , I haven’t noticed any hatred or racism .

      • rick on July 5, 2020 at 1:46 am

        Trump has equalized neo-nazis and anti-fascist protesters (not ANTIFA). He has also promoted mass deportations based on racial lines. To be clear I do not want to incite anger, i just want to inform you on trumps actions.

    • Tami on September 29, 2019 at 8:47 am

      Absolutely spot on! He is a cancer on America.

      • Chase C on July 16, 2020 at 1:16 am

        Your the one hating. Trump doesn’t hate on anyone until they hate on him and try to make him look bad. Republicans are at peace with this country it’s the Dems that hate there for making them the cancer.

        • Scott Edgell on August 27, 2020 at 5:00 pm

          100% correct.

    • Kat on June 12, 2020 at 7:17 pm

      no, People who voted for Trump disliked Obama as much as the liberals hate him. The difference is we were told to be tolerant…..by none other than YOU……but turns out You can’t be tolerant…..the hatred is owned by YOU and the fake media is your biggest supporter…..Proof: How is it literally possible to shut down America, for months…..but when the PROTESTS start, coronavirus news is “crickets”…..Proof: Coronavirus must be shut down everything because SCIENCE says so……but one’s gender is not judged by science????? Democrat LIBERALS are the haters, and they are racist to the core, because they judge me by my skin color. I judge ya’ll by your lies.

    • Scott Edgell on August 27, 2020 at 4:58 pm

      No Obama incited racism and hatred for 8 years and the left wing media did very little to criticize him. The liberal media gave Obama a free pass.

    • Peggy on September 12, 2020 at 5:15 pm

      What hate is it that President Trump spews? Every democrat says that, but offer no proof. So, please, do tell what it is he’s said?

  10. Mike Cavanaugh on September 21, 2019 at 2:53 pm

    Someone mentioned race war which agree with. Although the race war will include a substantial number of the white population under 28 to 30 years old that have been brainwashed by the left to think socialism is the way to go. After folks hit 30 years old and well into the work population that socialist mentality goes right out the window. Once the white wimps back down or get slaughtered the gingers and a portion of the hispanic population will step to the front and we will see the race war definition clarified…IMHO

    • Tony on June 4, 2020 at 3:17 pm


  11. gcaverly on September 21, 2019 at 9:12 am

    One could also add to this list and add to this list. Additionally is this truly a democracy or something else? True representative government or those who line and stuff there pockets at the peoples expense? Why the need for total gun control or a need by those in power to take it away so they can rule? Taxes? Tax them good and tax them more tax them till there really poor. Then when there down and out of luck, tax them, tax them, tax them more. As you see this list goes on and on.

  12. Mark Trunkwalter on September 20, 2019 at 11:01 pm

    Points are well taken!
    Just a matter of time with the current climate in this country.
    If people understood what the constitution tells us we may not have lasted this long before civil war.
    Many people reaching their boiling point and I believe that it will take only one event to trigger this response.
    When man’s laws take out God from the equation the bible tells us how to respond to it!

  13. Kandie L. Rosales on September 20, 2019 at 2:47 pm

    Racial, Religious and Political discrimination, along with increasing natural catastrophic events, civil wars and Government backed ethnic cleansing, are some major reasons for an increase in refugee camps worldwide. However, there’s a decrease in funding in all areas of humanitarian aid. Desperation always fuels greed, and greed leads to inexplicable inhuman acts of violence.
    The time to prepare for any possible survival, is now.

  14. Mic on September 20, 2019 at 12:26 pm

    These are signs of a destabilized society.
    This does not necessarily mean a “Civil war”, but it does point to a shift in the society: politically, economically and socially.
    This could point to a shift to a Dictatorship or Communism, possibly by a Coup.

    By “Civil War”, I am talking about a long drawn out conflict, affecting most of the population.

    Coup’s sometimes occur overnight, others are still “bloodless”, but last a few days or weeks.
    So this does not automatically mean we are headed for a “Civil War”. However that is a definite possibility.
    Something is coming, no one is really quite sure how it will start or how it will end.

  15. Robert Carter on September 20, 2019 at 11:39 am

    more like a race war
