‘BLACK SWAN EVENT’ looms, longtime journo warns

CBS Investigative Correspondent Catherine Herridge created a buzz when she shared her “dark” predictions for 2024.

Known for her seemingly objective and measured reporting – a true rarity and feat in this day and age – Herridge’s ominous forecast for the year ahead hit a nerve with many concerned Americans.

In a clip from “Face the Nation”, Herridge told viewers that she was “concerned that 2024 may be the year of a black swan event.”

A “black swan event” is usually interpreted as a surprise occurrence that has widespread and major effects and Herridge went on to explain in a little more detail about what she meant.

“This is a national security event with high impact,” she continued, “so it’s very hard to predict. There are a number of concerns that I have that factor into that.”

She cited the nation’s “enduring heightened threat level” along with the wars in Israel and Ukraine also playing a role in her prediction.

“And we’re so divided in this country in ways that we haven’t seen before. And I think that just creates fertile ground for our adversaries like North Korea, China, and Iran.

And that’s what concerns me most.”

Notably missing was the elephant in the room also known as the United States’ Southern border.  With so-called “sanctuary cities” begging for a halt to the endless influx of migrants, and illegal border crossers on the terror watch list ready to hit a new record, it’s not unfathomable to imagine some sort of seismic or catastrophic event.

Add to that, many political pundits have predicted doomsday scenarios should former president Donald Trump’s adversaries right here in the U.S. succeed in keeping him off the 2024 ballot.

Needless to say, with the world seemingly on fire, and the U.S. borders being invaded every day, Herridge’s prediction rang home for many, and they agreed with the longtime journalist:

Some believe Herridge’s words were part of the media’s fear-mongering tactics for clicks and views.

Others, just think it’s a good idea to be prepared.
