The Threats of One Pass on to Another

I was originally going to add this as a blurb in my predictions post for the month, but decided it needed its own post instead.

Paul Ryan decided to do the admirable thing for his family and step down as House speaker before he faced assassination this fall. This, of course, will spare his life and push another member of congress into his unenviable position where the threats to life will face them instead. Already one candidate, Steve Scalice, faced an assassination attempt last year and will likely not run as a result. Instead, Kevin McCarthy, the current house majority leader, will likely take Ryan’s spot and his place in facing serious assassination threats. If he does end up taking the job, then he will face assassination around the time that Trump will in 2019 (I will elaborate on this in my 2019 predictions post next year). The danger may have subsided for one, but it will continue to face whoever holds this office so long as congress remains wicked in defiance of the will of the American people. Until that changes, the dangers will continue unabated. Congress could remedy this, the question is will they? The choice is entirely up them (if the deep state doesn’t get to them first).

Dreams and Predictions for April 2018

I have two, potentially three blog posts in the works for this month. Hopefully I’ll be able to find the time to cover everything that needs to be said. In the meantime, here’s a prediction to share.

1) Saudi Arabia may think its recent PR blitz will fool people, but it will not. The truth about the horrors and oppressions are going to come to light in the near future. When they do, public opinion will never be the same again.

4/8 ETA: In case people were curious….

2) Trump’s trade war with China has nothing to do with economics and everything to do with geopolitical battle. Seeing them as North Korea’s main benefactor, the point of these tariff escalations is to weaken China to the point of domestic unrest. Under such a scenario, it would see an overthrow of the communist government and leave Kim Jong Un vulnerable to a military takeover. Whether this latest strategy works remains to be seen, but considering I’ve seen predictions for both the toppling of China’s government and Un’s this year, it’s possible that it does; with a very high body count as a result.

4/30 ETA: The other two blog posts won’t be ready for this month, so they will have to wait until May. In the meantime, here’s some more predictions.

3) Marvel Studios may be riding on a high now, but they will see a significant fall at the start of the next decade. Comic book fatigue and scandals emanating out of the leadership will see a sharp fall that will lead to significant financial problems for both the studio and Hollywood itself by the middle of the next decade.

4) A high profile pedophile will be outed and criminally prosecuted in the near future. This person has a lot of power and it will be a shock to many when their identity is revealed.

Release the Documentary

I’ve mentioned my predictions on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict before, but this blog has to do with Israeli influence in US and world politics. As the mainstream media is turning over every rock looking for Russian influence, the foreign power with the most influence is engaging in censorship right under their noses. From the unconstitutional assaults on the surging BDS movement to the attempts to eliminate human rights ordinances in local city councils, the attacks on our collective free speech in this way should be met with outrage. Instead, much of this is swept under the rug and not discussed very openly. That’s about to change and a documentary facing calls for censorship will do just the trick.

The cover photo of this blog refers to an article detailing attempts to censor a documentary exposing Israel’s influence on US politics (part of why PBS should stop taking government funds). Much like with the condemnation from lawmakers over a famous Vietnam documentary exposing lies in US foreign policy talking points, the anger by US lawmakers over this documentary is leading to Mccarthyite like retaliation. Qatar, under pressure due to wanting a Saudi led bombing campaign to cease and to avoid being labeled under the FARA act as a foreign agent, is caving into pressure to censor this critical expose on AIPAC and other organizations. This is morally unacceptable. To allow this to happen to information that is necessary for the public to know about is an assault on our constitutional rights worse than gun control.

As polls are skewed in one side’s favor due to a lack of critical information, such attempts to shut out critical information must be combatted at every turn. As such, the Israel Lobby documentary must air freely on Al Jazeera. If it does not, it will be leaked online as is without any changes made. Julian Assange already has his eyes on it and it will be put on the Wikileaks server within the next two months if action isn’t taken soon. It’s better to do it the legal way than allow it to be put out there as a leak that sees criminal prosecution take place. This documentary (and subsequent ones like it) will change public opinion on the Israeli Palestinian conflict when it finally sees the light of day. No matter how much a foreign power might try to stop it, the truth always has a way of revealing itself; whether they like it or not.

Dreams and Predictions for March 2018

I haven’t had a lot of visions lately, but I have had a lot of prediction fulfillments. I’ll have to get to that another time. In the meantime, here’s a prediction to share and hopefully more will come in the next few days or so.

1) There’s some trouble in the air as crime will begin to rise nationwide. It will start as a trickle and then explode by years end. It will be especially noticeable by the time 2019 rolls around.

3/14 ETA: I have been having some very vivid dreams lately, but unfortunately they pertain to personal details and not prophecy. However, I do have another prediction to share and hopefully there will be more before the end of the month.

2) The summer will be significantly cooler than record, which some will suggest means global warming isn’t happening. It is, but the news surrounding it will eventually see these words echoed by Trump.

3/16 ETA: Finally, I’ve been having dream based predictions again. Here’s one to share.

3) Rapper Eminem will have a downfall in the next few months. The cause will likely be due to drug addiction. The end result will not be pleasant.

3/18 ETA: Here is another dream based prediction.

4) There will be another stage collapse at a festival or concert this summer due to bad weather. Not sure where or when, but it will have some fatalities and a lot of injuries.

3/19 ETA: This was from a dream I had last night, though it should be kind of an obvious prediction.

5) Jared Kushner is going to go to jail. I don’t know when it will occur, but it will happen after a prosecution over shady dealings in his real estate business like this one. Trump won’t stand with him or pardon him when this happens.

3/20 ETA: Another dream based prediction. It seems my prescience is returning.

6) Portions of the investigation against the Trump administration’s supposed collusion with Russia will leak to a Trump friendly source like TMZ or the National Enquirer. This will work to discredit Mueller’s probe and will be part of the reason why it won’t lead to Trump’s ouster.

3/6 ETA: I touched upon this briefly in the 2018 predictions, but just to spell it out in the open.

7) The newly formed March For Our Lives and Black Lives Matter will clash in the near future. The consequences will be felt in the effectiveness of the gun control movement (it will fail) and for chances for the Democrats to retake the House and the Senate in the fall.

3/30 ETA: I thought I could wait until April to write about this as I wanted to go into more detail in a bigger blog post. However, due to the recent situation on the ground in the Gaza Strip, I need to make this statement now and then I’ll expand upon in sometime in the beginning of the new month.

8) The recent March of Return taking place in the Gaza Strip will lead to the start of a third intifada by the time the summer begins. It will see Netanyahu’s permanent ouster as Prime Minister, Abbas’ death, the dissolution of the Palestinian Authority and the permanent end of the two state solution.

Is It Worth the Price?

This may be a blog post that ruffles a lot of feathers, but it still needs to be said. In the wake of yet another mass shooting on US soil, the moment is leading to more calls for gun control. It’s not as if it hasn’t taken place. States already have it on the books on the heels of mass anger from previous shootings at Columbine and Sandy Hook. What is causing the current tension is that red states resist the calls. This gets to an underlying fissure in American society and it’s why politicians are reluctant to rock the apple cart.

Gun control is not a fool proof form of eliminating violence. It is largely racially enforced and doesn’t target the people who are the most likely to commit mass shootings (white people). It makes revolution impossible to achieve. It fails to address the mental health crisis in this country. Also important to note in this particular shooting is the FBI’s failure to stop the shooter (possibly purposefully). Most importantly, it gets to the heart of our system of inequality where the rich protect themselves with bodyguards and the police while the poor are left largely defenseless in this society. Until we address these underlying tensions and those that will attain weapons illegally, this is nothing more than an attempt to disempower the masses by the powers that be.

The reason the powers that be keep pushing gun control is obvious. The reason they have failed despite billions in spending is less obvious. The NRA alone isn’t responsible for why the United States doesn’t have sensible gun control. The voting block of the GOP, poor white southerners, has more to do with it than the money spent in elections. These are people with no prospects and no hope for bettering themselves due to a combination of fiscal austerity, racially charged propagandizing and a lack of access to others forms of advancement. As a result, they cling to their guns the way they do to religion (even if one serves to keep them disempowered the way gun control is supposed to for the masses). Take one piece of their pride away and you risk starting an uprising that won’t be so easily put down. It won’t be one that promotes freedom, but rather furthers entrenches a police state that needs to be destroyed.

If the feds continue to drive towards policy of gun confiscation, civil war follows by resistant gun owners. This could lead to the deaths of 36 million people and the further offing of any real justice for the American people. The question in such a scenario is would it be worth it? As sad as it is to say, the answer is it would not. This rebellion would be put down and mass shootings might stop, but at the cost of more lives lost than all previous mass shootings combined. It would also see the further erosion of civil liberties and a more vicious solidification of the police state that needs to be dismantled, not empowered further. If we are truly serious about attaining our freedom, then we must be careful about what path that takes. Going backwards will just further set us away from progress, rather than brining us to a more egalitarian future.

People should be careful about following the road the elite want us to go down. It will end in more tears than anyone can imagine. I am sympathetic to the victims of the Parkland shooting and those before it, but to do what they want would destroy the country in a way that will further enslave us and not free us. What is rebuilt in the ashes is a more authoritarian society than ever before and we’ll only see more suffering in its wake. I hope this anger is channelled towards the powers that be instead. That would bring a true sense of justice for the victims and everyone else in the country.

Street Justice

I mentioned this briefly in my 2018 predictions post and I would like to expand upon it as it deserves its own post.

Despite my optimism from last year, not much has changed on the issue of the police state of the US and its corresponding brutality much noticed between 2014 and 2016. In fact, things are actually getting worse by most measurable standards. Abuses by the police are more egregious than ever with little stopping it in the form of criminal prosecution or legislative reform. Much more was exposed, some of it by the late Erica Garner, but it didn’t create a tidal wave of change that is very dearly needed. That will manifest itself, but not in a way that anyone would truly want.

As non violent forms of resistance have failed, violence is coming in the form of street justice. As warned in the 2018 predictions post, when the state refuses to punish those who murder civilians unjustly, the people will in a way that will shock and appall the state. Groups of vigilantes will murder police officers who have gotten away with murder of unarmed black men in the past. Such moves will be condemned by the state who will work to crack down on it in a brutal fashion. In the process, they will expose themselves as unwilling to change the police state in any meaningful way. Despite the repression, the net effect will be that these murders will intimidate police officers in future confrontations. There will be a dramatic drop off in the number of deaths at the hands of police (though that isn’t the current trend now). This is especially true in New York City which will serve as the epicenter of these actions.

It’s unfortunate that it has come to to this, but our elected officials have left no other choice. When justice doesn’t come from the courts, it will come viciously from the streets.

Dreams and Predictions for February 2018

Sorry if I have been a bit absent. The big 2018 predictions post drained me and I have also been dealing with some family issues as well. I have a prediction to share now and hopefully more will come by the end of the month.

1) It won’t just be Bermuda that suffers if the British government assents to their repeal of marriage equality. The move will significantly hurt Brexit plans as the EU uses the scandal to weaken the UK’s position in their attempts to leave the EU. It’s possible that assent could be withheld, but the Tory government seems unlikely to do it. What would normally be a smoother exit will end up being more calamitous as a result instead.

2/17 ETA: Two more dream based predictions.

2) I had this dream in two stages. The first took place in a church where I was having an eery feeling that it was going to be blown up at some point. The second dream took place during a church service where multiple bomb was set off killing a lot of people, including the one conducting the sermon. This leads me to believe that a church, most likely a black church, will be targeted by terror, most likely by white supremacists, in the near future. Watch out for this.

3) I had a dream which further confirmed a prediction from the 2018 post that the Democrats will do poorly in the mid terms. It was a dream where Nancy Pelosi’s next in line, Joe Crowley, had a farm that was outdated and in need of repair. He, and the party leaders who supported him, refused to fix the farm and it went into collapse as a result. This is likely a metaphor for the pork and grit of the Democratic party which he and Pelosi refuses to crack down on. As a result, the party will see losses in the midterm that will force changes at the farm in time for the 2020 election.

2/18 ETA: Another prediction/warning.

4) Emma Gonzalez, the girl who spoke passionately against the Trump regime, is in for a world of hurt. The right wing reactionaries will go after her; digging up personal improprieties and stalking her until she faces a psychological collapse. She could even be in danger of ending up dead like her classmates. I will write more about the gun control debate in a bigger blog post, but these are dangerous waters to tread and anyone who does so should be aware that the end may not be as pretty as it appears.
