I’m already in the process of getting visions for as far off as 2018, but those will be displayed closer to the end of the year. In the meantime, here are some predictions for the more immediate future.
1) Donald Trump continues to alienate important allies and they coordinate against him to either have him impeached or assassinated before the end of this term.
2) Comedian Kathy Griffin has hit a rough patch after she posed for a photo with Trump’s bloody head. Despite the fallout, I do think she will recover and have one final bout of success before fading into obscurity towards the end of her life. If the comeback works as planned, she’ll even end up hosting an Academy Awards ceremony down the line at the last minute.
3) There will be major revelations in regards to Stephen Colbert’s support of pedophiles and Jimmy Fallon’s long rumored drug use. Both men will see seismic problems this summer with up and coming comedians threatening to take their respective perches. I do think they will both hold off the onslaught, but it will be brutal for the both of them as a result.
4) There will be a major international incident that takes place in Malta in the near future. I do believe this in regards to terrorism or a military strike, but I’m not certain.
6/12 ETA: I posted below a commemoration of our third year anniversary. With all of the things that have been happening in my life, I simply forgot to mark the occasion. Thank you for your continued readership and best wishes to everyone for the remainder of the year. With that in mind, here are some other predictions.
5) If you have been planning to travel to Cuba, you better get your trip booked soon. Trump will likely announce a closing of relations with the embattled island and cut off American tourist activity substantially. Although he will honor trips that have already been scheduled, future trips in 2019 will be officially prohibited.
6) The issue of gentrification and a lack of affordable housing will blow up in a big way this summer. Even the most right wing of politicians will not be able to withstand the heat from the fallout that comes over this issue and how it effects our political system.
7) In spite of an announced partnership with the Northern Ireland Democratic Unionist Party, I do not believe Theresa May will be able to pass a Queen’s speech. A successful court order against the pairing by rival Sein Finn (in violation of the Good Friday agreement) and massive unrest in the streets sees the coalition falter and Corbyn given the opportunity to form a minority government with himself as the leader. He will succeed with the help of some rebel tories looking to send a message to the Brexiters and the Tory government.
8) I have the eery feeling that more terrorism is on the horizon in the US. It’s been relatively quiet here, but that won’t last long.
6/21 ETA: A few more predictions to share.
9) I should have posted that I thought Jon Ossoff would lose to Karen Handel, but now that it has already happened, I should warn that this is what Democrats should expect to see more often heading into the midterm elections next year.
10) I’m extremely troubled by the situation in the Gaza Strip over reduced power payments by the Palestinian Authority and the subsequent power cuts by the Israeli power authorities. The danger of not finding a resolution to this problem immediately is both a humanitarian and military crisis seeing both another war in the next few months and a possible plague that begins to form in the wake of a lack of sewage disposal on the ground. Neither side will end up victimless as both will see mass casualties and it could make both the strip and the Israeli towns near the border uninhabitable for centuries to come. It will also see much of my predictions on this from 2017 fulfilled as well. Hope cooler head prevail, but they most likely won’t.
11) I don’t believe Colin Kaepernick will be signed to an NFL team, but the league will find in short order that their decision to blacklist him will have bigger consequences than they can foresee at this time. When dark scandals in the league finally come to light later this year and into the next, you can thank Kaepernick for blowing the lid off the place when no one else had the guts to do it.
6/25 ETA: Another prediction, may be the last for the month.
12) Singer Shawn Mendes puts up a front of being a genuinely nice person, but that facade is soon about to deteriorate. It will get to a point where even his most ardent fans will be unable to make excuses for the petulant behavior he’ll unleash, largely unprovoked.
