This article is being written on the morning of January 20, 2017. The hopes of hundreds of millions of anti-neocons around the United States, and billions more around the world, are hanging on the broad shoulders of Donald J. Trump. Of course, we had similar hopes eight years ago with Nobel Peace Prize winning president Barack Hussein Obama (aka B-O).
This collection of predictions, prognostications and outright – and please forgive the terminology – hope is listed in no particular order. I’m an optimist, not a psychic. If you want psychic predictions, listen to George Noory. If he’s still around.
This also presupposes that Mr. Trump will survive the year 2017, let alone 2021 and 2025.
The established, corporate media will continue its decline. That’s not to say that billionaires with deep pockets won’t continue to fund its existence. But it will operate on shoestring budgets. Staff will be cut to less-than-skeleton levels. As computer technology improves (or at least advances), multi-million-dollar paid liars like Megyn (I Settled For Less) Kelly and Brian Williams will be replaced by CGI and voice sampling. Donald Trump’s threats aside, it is unclear whether the technology to produce those images will be located in the United States. A generation of safe-space snowflakes and common core have pretty much guaranteed skilled jobs returning to the U.S.A. en-masse. Apple and Microsoft couldn’t bring those jobs back if they wanted to. The next generation labor force is just too stupid.
On to Trump himself..
There will be a mass awakening among Americans and freedom-loving people worldwide alike. This will be a splash of cold water. In America, the question of whether government is functioning within the bounds of the constitution will become fashionable. Ron Paul will be proud.
The theoretical public debt of the United States government will be reduced. One way or another. Either America’s creditors (chiefly China) and the privately-owned federal reserve itself will take a modest, negotiated haircut. Or, the U.S. government will, by necessity, default outright. The role of the federal reserve’s looting of Americans – and the entire planet – will be exposed. And they will be shut down once and for all. When it becomes a matter of widespread acceptance that the debt of nations is a made of number that never existed in the first place, there is no way the people will continue to slave and sacrifice in the name of taxation.
Donald Trump has made some disturbing overtures towards America’s israeli masters. The problem for israel is this: Trump is an America-firster, not an israel-firster. And as he gets past the israeli-controlled masters that he has surrounded himself with (both family and advisers), and learns for himself the extent of extent and the magnitude of the crimes, corruption, espionage, manipulation and outright theft on the part of israel’s government, it is inconceivable he will allow this continue. The American people will not let this continue. Citizens of other countries will see that this has been happening in their own countries and will similarly put a stop to it in their own lands. The government of israel will be cut off. And when that happens, ever-lasting, non-stop wars will be cut off. And if we’re really, really lucky, the heads of the hydras, the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers, will be cut off, too.
The University Industrial Complex will collapse and educational institutions will have no choice but to adopt a new business model: teaching young skulls full of mush (with apologies to Rush Limbaugh) what they need to know to get them by for the rest of their lives. To debate new ideas. ALL ideas. And to do it a a cost the average parents can afford, and that the kids themselves can afford while working at off-campus jobs, without going into debt.
The current educational debt crisis is an insightful parallel to the inflationary consequences of unrestrained money printing. The colleges charge tens of thousands of dollars in tuitions to pay faculty hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep them in jobs for life. They hire thousands of people whose jobs do nothing to contribute towards the educations of their paying customers. Equality co-ordinators, vice-presidents of diversity, LGBTQ-whatever outreach directors, etc. How to pay for it? Raise the cost of tuition. Kids can’t afford it? No bother. Have the government lend them more money. Unlimited amounts of money. With no regard to their ability to repay.
Judge Reinhold in “Ruthless People.” Fucking Finance It!
When the money for that nonsense disappears, so will the nonsense itself.
There will be no mass-deportations. There will be no-roundups. There will be a wall. And Mexico will pay for it. Whether they know it or not. When President Trump makes it one of his first orders of business that the U.S. government will no longer cater to the needs and wants of illegal aliens and orders the federal government to enforce and comply with federal law, those people will send themselves home. In fact, when 20- or 30-million Mexicans and Other-Than-Mexicans start heading south, Mexico may build that wall to protect itself from its illegals up north.
Once businesses are required to use e-verify, sanctuary cities are cut-off from federal funding, driver’s licenses are taken away, public welfare and health care services are taken away and valid, verified social security numbers are required to open bank accounts and negotiate money transfers, the problem will take care of themselves. When INS-style raids are re-instated, starting with the parking lot entrances of your local Home Depot, America will be returned to the American people. It may take some time before you can walk into your local McDonald’s and be greeted with “Hola!” by the adolescent behind the counter, but it will happen.
California is one of the world’s largest economies. With Donald Trump’s help, it will start acting like it.
And speaking of California…Hollywood continue to be ostracized by America. They live in their own little bubble. Look for more celebrities to go bankrupt. Hollywood’s acting denizens will either go back to acting, and otherwise shut up with their leftist pontifications. Or the film industry will abandon Los Angeles once and for all.
The neo-cons (from the left and from the right) who have been responsible for the deaths of millions over the past three decades will be exposed and de-fanged. Fox News may be the home of conservative, traditionally Republican, thought. But the likes of Charles Krauthammer, Bill Kristol, John Bolton, Karl Rove and other war criminals will be chased out of the District of Criminals. All the way to The Hague. Again, if we’re really lucky.
CNN, may collapse outright under the weight of its lies. Fox News will not be far behind. As for ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC…stick a fork in them. Their done. They broadcast networks may still run their evening newscasts. They may even finally get the message and hire people who are throwbacks to the likes of Murrow, Cronkite, Mudd, Chancellor and the truly great journalists of our youth. But they will still be a shadow of their former selves. The days of networks hiring multi-million dollars liars are finished. The advertising just won’t support it.
The major metropolitan newspapers may continue to exist as on-line editions you can read on your i-pad or cellphone. But the print editions will disappear. The problem is: how much more are the billionaire oligarchs willing to pour into the ventures? Like television media, advertisers won’t support it. And people won’t for paywalls because we don’t like paying to be lied to. So Big Media is screwed.
As America regains its freedom and independence, people in other countries (ridiculed as populists by corporate media) will take their own countries back. In an encouraging sign, Kevin O’Leary has announced he will be running for the leadership of the Conservative Party in Canada. He is already being dismissed and ridiculed by establishment Conservative politicians and media. Ironically, most print media in Canada is right-leaning. And they don’t like Kevin one bit.
Canadians, get used to Prime Minister Kevin O’Leary in two-and-a-half years.
More to come…
In the interest of full disclosure, your humble correspondent is a Canadian. Married to his American trophy wife. And she had a big ol’ smile on her face on the morning of November 9, 2016. If Mr. Trump survives the next four years and accomplishes half of what he intends, Mr. LettersToTheBeast will vote Trump’s re-election.
