Theresa May’s Foolish Folly

As I previously predicted, Theresa May will be holding general elections this year in the United Kingdom. While she believes that this will help her shore up a majority and, as a result, a mandate for her governance, she’s making a huge mistake for herself. Like Hillary Clinton before her, the media’s propagating of inevitability is resented by much of the public and they, like with the Brexit result before it, may be ready to show the elite of England that they will not follow orders nicely. Along with this, Vladimir Putin will come after her and help elevate her rival who is seen as more sympathetic to his interests, Jeremy Corbyn. While many think his leadership is coming to an end, the truth is he’ll win the general election and shock the nation, and the world, in the process. The UK aristocracy will try its hardest to destroy him upon such an upset victory, even with an assassination attempt along the way. However, it will fail and Corbyn will be remembered as one of England’s favorite prime ministers. While May thinks this is the beginning of a major revival of her political fortunes, she’ll soon discover it will be a disastrous end for her career like what became of her predecessor, David Cameron. This foolish folly won’t have a happy ending for the Tory party, though fortunately it still sees Brexit in its wake.

The Decade’s Most Important Invention: The Flying Car

I know I’m a little late to the party, but it’s worth posting about anyway. The infamous United Airlines incident that went viral globally reminded me of predictions I made in 2012 that have begun to see fulfillment in recent years. I started with this:

“Airplane companies fold one by one as increased fuel surcharges and decreased usage make the already vulnerable industry shut down its main operations. Expect this to lead to increased crowding on flights and fights breaking out at terminals worldwide for the next several years.”

The instability in the airline industry has been a long running trend over the last few years. United’s “re-accommodation” mishap is only the latest in a series of scandals permeating throughout the entire airline industry. From increased hassles and fees to invaded privacy, terminal fights and terrorism, flying has become disdained by most of the world. All of this anger and feelings of being fed up leads to most important innovation of the decade, the flying car.

Later this year, I believe the final prototype of a mass produced flying car will be released to the public. There have been a number of iterations previously, but I believe this latest one will be the one that becomes the major money maker. It will soon be available, likely released by years end. The price will be affordable enough soon after release where most Americans can save up for it if they invest wisely. Soon, with a little help from corporate tax credits and incentives, everyone will have one and the airline industry will go kaput as a result; resulting in a nationalized system of air travel for those who can’t operate a flying car on their own. The days of the oligopoly are coming to an end and not a moment too soon.

The Brink of World War 3

I hinted at this in my first prediction for this month and it seems like a fulfillment has already occurred. Trump’s attack on a Syrian air base last night after an alleged chemical attack on civilians by Assad’s government takes us to an extreme moment of danger. This comes as a major reversal of Trump’s campaign promises and his supporters have already turned on him over the action. What makes this strike so foolhardy is that we don’t really know who launched the chemical attack and the facility bombed is fighting ISIS, a more imminent danger. Russia’s cool response alarms me and the risk of world war 3 is very great. This bombing, on the 100th anniversary of the US entry into world war 1, threatens to send the world in war yet again.

In spite of this danger, though, I do believe that it will de-escalate in the next few days when the war gets too hot. However, Assad will have to be removed from power in order to do that. The deep state does not care if we are nuked off the face of the Earth and the Russian government must know that they are dealing with mad men not bluffing with their threats of a holocaust. I said Assad would be disposed of in my 2017 predictions. Hopefully, he’ll leave quietly rather than threatening a nuclear apocalypse to accomplish the job. It’s the only way to take ourselves off the brink of total destruction.

Dreams and Predictions for April 2017


I’ll write more specific predictions in the future, but #1 is more of a general comment than anything else.

1) April, along with August, will be the most consequential months of the entire year. Big changes are on the horizon in regards to politics and also the state of foreign affairs. Specifically watch for major changes in the Trump white house. It will devastate the country in ways he may not expect.

4/7 ETA: With prediction 1 already in the process of fulfillment, it’s time to add some more predictions to do this list.

2) London will be in a state of crisis this month and it will have nothing to do with terrorism. It will have major political implications for Theresa May’s government and will likely seen an upswing for a currently embattled Jeremy Corbyn.

3) I know this seems like quite a long shot of thinking, but there’s a chance that Jean-Luc Mélenchon surpassed Marine Le Pen in the first round of presidential polling. If he does, he’ll defeat a very war hungry Macron easily. If not, I’m starting to believe that Le Pen is inevitable, sad as it is to say.

4) With the troubles in Syria more apparent than ever, Israel’s jubilation will be short lived. What goes around comes around and during a similar chemical attack on the Palestinians by Netanyahu this summer, a bomb will be set off at their military base from where they store their secret nuclear weapons. Fair play is the name of the game and it may lead to a fraying of Trump from Israel that I have previously predicted.

5) There will be massive anti-war demonstrations this weekend. It will be part of the reason why the situation in Syria doesn’t get worse.

4/20 ETA: A few more predictions.

6) Angela Merkel is going to have a rough month in May as it will preview a disastrous election result for her in October.

7) As I’ve hinted at previously, there will be a major breakthrough next month on the issue of police brutality. Things are about to change for the better, as surprising as it might to hear.

8) Watch for trouble in the real estate markets of New York and London. It’ll signal what will finally see this long inflated bubble pop into the greatest depression of our time.

A Breakthrough on Destroying the Police State

Last night I had a premonition that, after years of struggle and heartbreak, a breakthrough on eradicating the police state is coming. For many years, all I’ve seen are negative visions and pessimistic outlooks to injustice in American society. I wrote earlier this year that the police state we collectively live under is the single biggest moral crisis the country has. Thankfully, there is a pathway towards movement for, if not a total eradication, then a movement where police abolition will be possible in the not too distant future.

Three years after the murder of Michael Brown, an issue I wrote about at the time, new revelations have come to lot that are going to bring justice to the troubled town of Ferguson, Missouri in the near future. Darren Wilson has been exposed as a racist and his lies in sworn testimony were caught in court documents. The store owners that accused Brown of robbery on defense after the narrative was disrupted in a television documentary. Bob McCulloch, the infamously corrupt prosecutor who let Wilson off the hook, is currently colluding with the police to shield accountability for the store owners in a suspicious manner. All of this is adding up to a scandal coming in the near future.

The pivotal moment will come when one of the grand jury members breaks their silence and reveals damning information that will cast doubt on the decision not to indict Wilson for the murder of Brown. The brave sacrifice of this juror (knowing they will face jail time for their decision to leak) will open up a major rift that can be positively utilized if acted upon immediately after. If activist groups resurge and fight for justice, they can win in a way that will ripple across the entirety of the country. Even Trump won’t be able to stop the wave of changes to his beloved law enforcement if it’s strong enough to wash over the tide of evil that is the Republican party. A light is shining through after three years of darkness. Hopefully it leads to better times ahead.

India’s Make or Break Moment

I would normally put this in either the dreams post for March or in a predictions update post, but there’s additional information that is long enough to justify its own blog post. One of our readers has been curious about what is going to happen in the future and this confirms the need for this post. Though much of this has already been mentioned in my 2017 predictions page, having it more prominently featured will get across to the intended parties how serious this warning is.

I haven’t written about India much lately, though I said the nation could be in the midst of a golden period previously. However, due to recent developments on the ground, there’s a chance that India will go from a beacon upon the nations to a country in a doldrum not seen since its colonized days. Narendra Modi, their prime minister, came into office as a promoter of globalization and remaking India as a 21st century economy. Despite the boasts and promises, little has changed on the ground and many of the issues he’s needed to address have gone completely unattended. This largely comes down to his political base, the Bharatiya Janata Party (or BJP) stubbornly standing in the way of progress on multiple fronts. Most offensively, it comes to the issue of the refusal to repeal the centuries old ban on gay relationships, though other issues are relevant as well.

India had a major breakthrough for progress on gay rights in 2009 when the high court struck down the sodomy ban and legalized gay relationships. However, four years later, the supreme court of India overturned the lower court ruling leaving the ban in place until the parliament acted to overturn it themselves. Despite a massive increase of arrests for this “offense” (14% of them being minors), there has not been any significant movement on the ground towards repealing this ordinance. In fact, not only has there been no progress, members of the government have used the ban to make threats towards foreign dignitaries and their domestic partners. Previous attempts by the parliament have seen significant failure and there doesn’t appear to be any action on this front in the near future. This comes despite it being major headlines in recent years and in spite of major pressure from the international community to ditch these grotesque laws. Modi’s refusal to push for this repeal is his ultimate sin. His continuous refusal to use his political clout to repeal it and come into the 21st century will ultimately cost him his job and any form of respect from the international community.

As if this wasn’t bad enough, the fallout from the ban comes with his misguided economic policies. From the notorious cash ban that has caused panic and instability domestically (though it has been eased slightly since) to the repressive crackdowns on union organization, Modi’s desire to be a capitalist superpower is coming at the cost of the rights of the working class. Couple this with his support of apartheid practices in Israel, the nations bigotry towards muslims and the surge of rapes on the ground (both of women and gay men) and we have a recipe for disaster in the making.

2017 is make or break year for the billion plus nation of India as a whole. In 2014, I said that India had a chance to become the world’s superpower on the heels of major downfalls from the US and China. However, if India (particularly Modi) doesn’t begin to make progress on these fronts in the next month or so, then India will diverge onto another path; one where its dreams of international influence crumble on the weight of religious extremists in Modi’s government refusing to emerge into the 21st century with their biases and bigotry evaporated. How India will fare in years to come largely stems from action (or inaction) on these fronts. Time is running out. I hope the Indian people and Modi make the correct choice. It would be a tragedy if stubbornness turns a nation of promise into ruins.
