Did A Novelist From The 1800s Warn Us In Advance That Donald Trump Would Be ‘The Last President’?

I am about to share with you one of the strangest things that I have come across in a very long time.  In the late 1800s, author Ingersoll Lockwood wrote a series of novels which appear to have striking parallels to events happening today.  In his first two novels, The Travels and Adventures of Little Baron Trump and His Wonderful Dog Bulgar and Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey, an extremely wealthy little boy with “a very active brain” named Baron Trump is guided on a series of extraordinary adventures by a man known as “Don”.  And if you can believe […]

Mark Zuckerberg, The Rock, Katy Perry And Oprah Winfrey Are All Thinking Of Running For President

Donald Trump has proven that you don’t have to be a career politician to successfully run for president, and so now a number of top celebrities are actually seriously thinking about running against him in 2020.  Unless Hillary Clinton runs again, the Democrats really don’t have an obvious choice, and so this next election cycle presents a unique opportunity for outsider candidates that may want to test the political waters.  In politics, timing is everything, and for celebrities at the peak of their popularity the 2020 election may be their best and only shot at the highest office in the […]

President Oprah? Speculation Rises That The 2020 Election Will Feature An Epic Battle Between Donald Trump And Oprah Winfrey

When Donald Trump originally announced that he was going to run for president, he said that his ideal choice for a running mate was Oprah Winfrey, but now he may be actually running against her in the 2020 election.  A recent episode of The David Rubenstein Show that featured an interview with Oprah Winfrey is creating a tremendous amount of buzz that Oprah Winfrey may throw her hat into the ring during the next election cycle.  This particular episode was taped back on December 12th, but it didn’t actually get aired on Bloomberg TV until last Tuesday.  You can see […]

It Is About Time That We Had A President That Was Willing To Go To War With The Mainstream Media

Thursday afternoon’s press conference was perhaps the most memorable moment of Donald Trump’s presidency so far.  Trump’s blistering attack on the media was quite a spectacle, but the truth is that it was desperately needed.  For decades, the mainstream media has dominated political discourse in this country no matter who has been in control of the White House or Congress.  They have become masters of guiding and shaping public opinion, and in recent years they have completely discarded any pretense of being “unbiased” or “objective”.  These monolithic media organizations relentlessly push the progressive agenda of their owners (the global elite), […]

President Trump’s Triffin problem

In many eyes, President-elect Trump is a loose cannon. He says things that upset people the world over. Many of them perhaps should not be taken too seriously – after all, he is a showman. But it would be a mistake to dismiss his rhetoric on trade. There, he is in deadly earnest – and it does not bode well either for America or for the world.  Trump’s trade agenda was set in Peter Navarro & Wilbur Ross’s paper (pdf) of September 2016. Peter Navarro’s most famous work is the documentary “Death By China” which essentially blames China for all America’s woes. […]

No Matter What Happens, We Won’t Know Who The Next President Will Be Until December 19th

Most Americans assume that their votes decide who the next president will be, but that is actually not the case.  It is the Electoral College that will elect the next president, and they don’t meet until December 19th.  And the truth is that all of the members of the Electoral College never meet in one place.  Rather, electors gather together in all 50 state capitals on the second Wednesday in December, and it is at that time that the next president and vice president are officially elected.  Of course members of the Electoral College have voted according to the will […]

The Titanic Sinks on Election Day

First, this article does not oppose one candidate or the other. Second, the “powers-that-be” have selected HRC as their choice for President to implement their agenda. Third, in spite of voting machine “glitches”, the popular vote could go either way. Texas County Enacts “Emergency Paper Ballots” Regardless of who the voting machines select as winner, the following questions have been mostly ignored by both candidates. The US national debt (official only) is nearly $ 20 trillion and has approximately doubled every eight years. What is the plan for controlling the growth of that debt? Let it grow exponentially and assume […]

Barack Obama Is On Track To Be The Only President In History To Never Have A Year Of 3% GDP Growth

We just got another extremely disappointing GDP number.  It was being projected that U.S. GDP would grow by 2.5 percent during the second quarter of 2016, but instead it only grew by just 1.2 percent.  In addition, the Census Bureau announced that GDP growth for the first quarter of 2016 had been revised down from 1.1 percent to 0.8 percent.  What this means is that the U.S. economy is just barely hanging on by its fingernails from falling into a recession.   As Zero Hedge has pointed out, the “average annual growth rate during the current business cycle remains the weakest […]

INFOGRAPHIC: 7 Reasons We’ll See “President Donald Trump” (Part II)

Harry Dent Love him or hate him – those seem to be the two reactions to Republican nominee, Donald Trump. Only Hillary has higher negative ratings. But in “The Donald’s” case, his supporters are much stronger and much more loyal than the former first lady’s. Current polls have Hillary leading by a couple of points in a two-way race, but then again experts have consistently underestimated Trump. So, anything is possible. Everyone thought he would flame out early on. But he routed the entire rainbow of Republican candidates. Bernie did surprisingly well, but could not even come close to beating […]
