Napoleon, who fought to protect and empower the populace, proceeded to crown himself emperor and take the spoils of his own country. This happened with 2 different Napoleons. I predict Trump will follow in their footsteps.
I predict Trump’s friend Putin will manage Trump as if the President is a 2-bit hustler. Trump will destroy Russia’s enemies without the Russians having to foot the bill. Trump will arrange for Snowden to be extradited, prosecuted as a traitor and executed.
I predict Trump will appoint 2 or 3 Supreme Court justices who are right of right, who will destroy abortion rights, the separation of church and state, voting protections, civil liberties and privacy protection for the individual, and who will make wholesale changes to constitutional limits of presidential powers for the sake of eliminating threats to Trump and his regime.
I predict sexual predators will receive societal acceptance and endorsement from the media, entertainment, Trump, and his followers. But homosexuals will be branded as deviant, and their marriage will be disallowed, especially for tax reasons.
I predict the US government will go bankrupt.
I predict the US military will flourish. There will be popular uprisings, which will be stopped quickly, and the best of the rebels will be enlisted into the national military.
I predict corporations will shrink in number and grow in strength, enjoying extraordinary tax incentives. The Congress will back this.
I predict lynchings will be ignored. The police will grow more confident. Riots will erupt and be silenced. News blackouts will occur. The KKK will continue to grow, with off-shoots under new names.
I predict congress will consider bills to make the US a Christian nation.
I predict more news blackouts will occur, replaced by “announcements.”
I predict Trump will get mad and push the nuclear button. If he can time the event properly, he will cancel the 2020 election. I will be in the wrong ½ of the world when the explosions happen and will be maimed or dead, but the fallout will eventually kill the rest of the population too.
I used to be such an optimist.
Maybe 4 years will not be enough time for Trump to achieve this list of predictions.
We will see.
