As Gerald Celente once said, I am a political atheist. I do not belong to any political party in any country on the globe; I do not endorse any political party or ideology. My mission is to reveal the truth, share with my fellow earthlings what I know and foresee, and show the way, when necessary. I am fully independent in what I think and what I say. When I make predictions, I tell the truth about what I foresee. I don’t sugarcoat it for the sake of this or that political agenda. If I support any country, policy or individual, it is because I see that such country, policy or individual are going in the right direction, beneficial for the future of our planet.
I intend to post more predictions for the upcoming 2016 US Presidential Elections, as I usually try to do for all important global elections. My past elections predictions can be found in PREDICTIONS.
My recent 2016 US Presidential Elections Predictions
Let’s begin with a quote from ESR2 (reloaded & expanded): UKRAINE – TRUTH, LIES & FUTURE HOPE, published on February 18, 2016. In it I wrote:
“THE UNIVERSAL LAW OF PENDULUM
The farther pendulum swings in one direction, eventually, when the inertia is broken, the farther it will swing in the opposite direction. The pendulum has swung as far as it would go, and it’s only a matter of time to break its inertia. Once it’s broken, Ukraine will swing much closer to Russia. After that happens, how will Ukrainians feel about the USA? I won’t tell you – use your imagination. Not good, obviously.
Actually, I think this is the right time to warn all decent Americans: do something about your government in order to stop this madness!
I won’t talk about the American presidential candidates – promise to have predictions some time this year. But whatever you do, don’t vote for Hilary, unless you want the continuation of the same madness. Will someone else be more reasonable? Unlikely, as whoever is elected still takes cues from the same source. But there is a small hope that someone who’s not associated with Clintons, Bushes and Obamas, will have a little more common sense. Let’s just call it ‘hope,’ although I am not optimistic overall about the US. All in all, it does depend on the people: when the American people at large change – and demand change – the government won’t have a choice but to comply and change as well.
The only thing that may change the future direction in which USA is sliding is if people take active part in changing their country. This is the only thing that may potentially help. The karmic pendulum has swung too far in the case of the USA. The day of reckoning has been delayed and delayed.
One day, the inertia will be broken and the pendulum will swing just as far, or even further, away from the US.
One day it will be dangerous to travel around the world with an American passport.
Here we go, this is one of my predictions for the US. More to come later this year.”
Here is another early prediction I made in my November 24, 2015 article Explosive Consequences of Turkey Downing Russian Su-24 Jet in Syria – Complete Analysis and Predictions!
“A word about Obama.
I said previously that I didn’t normally write about Obama is he was too predictable and un-interesting to me. This is one little exception.
Obama, this typical peace-loving ‘nobel peace prize winner,’ is one of the biggest war-mongers out there. Obama is a puppet and a simpleton, who is a very effective mouth piece by virtue of being not very smart, but highly trainable. He’s a good actor though. He once fooled a lot of incredibly naive people by his ‘we are change’ slogan.
Having very little, if any, power from the start, after six years in office he looks like just an empty, soul-less shell. This happens to all American presidents whose daily job is to swindle the world and to lie to their own people. They are the ones who make pacts with the devil as a normal daily occurrence.
And now, a little preliminary prediction for the USA’s presidential elections 2016.
I am saving the full prediction for the US elections for 2016, when I will do a complete prediction about USA as part on a new Earth Shift Report. But I will give you a sneak peek, which is tied to the Russian jet downing in Syria.
Here is my preliminary prediction about US elections:
AS A RESULT OF ALL THE FAILURES AND EMBARRASSMENTS OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, DEMOCRATS WILL LOSE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS.” (END QUOTES)
Let’s fast forward to today!
THE OUTDATED US POLITICAL SYSTEM IS CRUMBLING!
REVOLTS ARE BREWING IN BOTH DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN PARTIES!
The Democratic Party revolt
Credit Doug Mills/The New York Times
‘Representative Tulsi Gabbard, Democrat of Hawaii, resigned as a vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee on Sunday in order to endorse Senator Bernie Sanders for president.
The endorsement came a day after Hillary Clinton won the Democratic primary in South Carolina by a huge margin — she captured nearly 74 percent of the vote — in a signal of her support in the South right before several other Southern states vote in Tuesday’s primaries.
Ms. Gabbard explained her decision in a video on YouTube in which she said that, as a military veteran, she wanted the United States to avoid “interventionist wars of regime change.”
“As a veteran of two Middle East deployments, I know first hand the cost of war,” said Ms. Gabbard, one of the first female combat veterans to serve in Congress. “I know how important it is that our commander-in-chief has the sound judgment required to know when to use America’s military power and when not to use that power.
“As a vice chair of the D.N.C., I am required to stay neutral in democratic primaries, but I cannot remain neutral any longer,” she added. “The stakes are just too high. That’s why today I’m endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders to be our next president and commander in chief of the United States.”
“We need a commander in chief who has foresight, who exercises good judgment, and who understands the need for a robust foreign policy which defends the safety and security of the American people, and who will not waste precious lives and money on interventionist wars of regime change,” Ms. Gabbard said. “We can elect a president who will lead us into more interventionist wars of regime change, or we can elect a president who will usher in a new era of peace and prosperity.”
Ms. Gabbard, who was born in American Samoa and is the first Hindu elected to Congress, is seen as a young, rising star of the party but has publicly battled Democratic leadership. In October, Ms. Gabbard said she was uninvited from the first Democratic presidential primary debate by the chief of staff to Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, the chairwoman of the national committee, after Ms. Gabbard appeared on television and called for more debates.’ (END QUOTE)
This is Tulsi Gabbard’s YouTube video in which she explains her decision:
Tulsi Gabbard hasn’t named Hilary Clinton directly. But it has been noted by many that Clinton is the mouthpiece for Wall Street, who also happens to be rabidly Russophobic and in favor of US warmongering policies that create wars and havoc of regime change.
I want to point out that Hilary Clinton is opposed and distrusted by women as much as men, both inside and outside her party. As a female candidate, she was hoping to rally the support of women, and she failed.
Another interesting trend is that the oldest of US presidential candidates, the white-haired Bernie Sanders, has the support of the young crowd. In fact, supporting Sanders is considered hip. Sanders also has the support of the educated and creative layers of the population. Bernie Sanders has a practically cult following and universal endorsement in large college towns, such as Ithaca, NY, where Cornell University is located.
Yet, the Democratic Party continues pushing Hilary forward.
Bernie supporters threaten to stay home, withholding their vote, if Clinton should win the nomination. This will create the perfect storm for the Democratic Party, of which I talk in my prediction above.
The Republican Party revolt
It is equally intense in the Republican Party. Despite the party’s big bosses putting all their weight behind someone else, Donald Trump has continued winning primary after primary. The party top brass first weres betting on Jeb Bush, but when it became clear he lagged behind, they changed their tactics and put their weight behind Marco Rubio.
Some may wonder why Jeb Bush has lagged from the beginning. He does have the advantage of the name recognition, which means a lot in politics.
My view is, perhaps, surprising and certainly unconventional: for a long time I have been noticing that Jeb Bush is actually the smart one in the family. I believe that having been born to Bushes, where he would have to go into politics, he smartly chose the warm and laid back Florida for his ‘domain,’ which he has ruled since. I further believe that Jeb has been pushed to run for president both by his family and republican leadership. But he personally isn’t interested in the job. Being shrewd and knowing deep down that one day sh*t will hit the fan, he doesn’t want to be the one held responsible. This is why his campaign has been uninspired at best. Even if he fails to admit it to himself, he doesn’t want the nomination. Self-sabotage comes to mind.
On the other hand, Marco Rubio is very enthusiastic and agreeable. As such, he has been selected by Republican establishment to be the poster boy, after Jeb didn’t live up to expectations. Jeb Bush has been pressured to step down as candidate and put his full support, and his votes, behind Rubio. Florida primary is looming (it’s this coming Tuesday, if I recall). It is one of those states where winner takes all votes. Florida would have voted for Jeb, their governor – and this was supposed to be Jeb’s trump card, no pan intended. But if Jeb endorses Rubio instead, it’s possible that Rubio will take all. By performing this kind of bait and switch, the Republican Party’s top hopes to reverse the trend of Trump’s triumphs and begin chipping away at his gains.
Despite these machinations on the part of the republican elites, Trump holds the enthusiastic majority among simple people who usually vote republican.
My new 2016 US Presidential Elections Predictions
This will be an interesting battle, first for both parties’ nominations, and later, for the seat of the US President. What is clear is that the trend of the global Earth Shift has finally reached the US. Turmoils have been shaking up many countries and regions of the world, including protests, wars and major crises. US has been relatively stable and quiet. But the wave of change is coming to America as well. It’s just that USA is a huge ship. It takes much longer to turn a ship of this magnitude. Therefore, the EARTH SHIFTING changes in the US will be slower and will occur later than in most other countries. But they will happen.
One of the changes that will come to pass relatively soon will be the overhaul of the outdated US election and political system. The system where only two parties are allowed to compete for a presidential post or for a Congress seat is stifling and doesn’t express the needs of the majority of the population. Just to compare: in the country, which US insists isn’t democratic, Russia, there are over 70 registered political parties, 4 of them, those who pass the 5% threshold, are in the Duma. Many more get elected regionally.
Moreover, the archaic US Electoral College system, adopted hundreds of years ago due to necessity, prevents the modern exercise of direct democracy. We all recall the farce when the winner of the popular vote lost US elections in the past, US Supreme Court appointing the new president. In the same archaic category is the use of ‘superdelegates.’ Superdelegates to a party congress carry much more weight than usual delegates, as they are considered to represent a larger number of voters. It is a rudiment of the US colonial era, when very few could make it to a party congress without proper roads. The funny part is that these superdelegates can vote the way they please, turning their back on their voters. Democratic establishment threatened to use superdelegates to secure Hilary Clinton’s democratic nomination, should Bernie Sanders win the popular vote.
With the success of Sanders and Trump, we have a typical revolt of the masses against the outdated electoral and political system in the US. But this revolt is significantly broader, even if those who rebel don’t fully realize it. This is the revolt against the direction in which USA is heading. More and more people are realizing that the ship is heading for the rocks. On the surface, everything seems OK in the US. It does appear to be a calm in the midst of a huge global storm. US is in the eye of the storm called EARTH SHIFT – for now. As I said, the real change will come later for the US.
But the astute and smart ones already see the unfavorable future unfolding.
The problem is that in the absence of alternatives, one can only hope to affect change in the US through running within the scope of the Republican or Democratic parties.
In most ways Sanders and Trump represent the opposite sides of the political spectrum. Sanders is, as he says, ‘democratic socialist.’ Trump is not just conservative, he is basically a libertarian with some very conservative views.
Let’s face it, neither Trump nor Sanders really fit the bill of either party. This is why the establishments of both are so against them. But they also know that they can only get to the top using the resources, leverage and voters within these two parties. In fact, the divergence between Trump and Rubio or Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders is so huge that, in reality, there should be at least 4 parties and, at a minimum, 4 different candidates running.
In fact, there are more candidates than that (Green Party, Constitutional Party, Libertarian Party, etc.), but they are shut off from public debates and never given MSM prime time. Including all the candidates who pass a certain threshold, like in Russia, would be fair and democratic. As it is, the US political system is unfair and anti-democratic.
One very important detail to remember! Despite the different platforms and views on domestic policy, there is one thing that unites Trump and Sanders, and sets them apart from the establishment democrats or republicans. They are both for more measured and reasonable approach to international affairs, against US wars, and for better relations with Russia.
If you recall, in the beginning of this article I quoted my 2015 prediction that democrats would lose the 2016 US presidential election specifically because of Obama/democratic administration’s failed international warmongering and Russophobic policies. Yes, there may have been a brief win of the US in Ukraine. History will only remember it as a blip. This victory will turn out to be a Pyrrhic one, especially when it comes to the conventional Democratic Party.
American people are beginning to demand a meaningful change. It’s subtle and timid so far, corroding slowly through the existing two-party system.
But this is just the beginning of the revolt. More to come and when it reaches its peak, it will be big. One thing for sure: what Americans want is to revert to protectionism and measured participation in politics and conflicts thousands of miles away.
Americans are getting sick and tired of the US warmongering, global expansionism and Russophobia. Any candidate insisting on the continuation of such policies will be very unpopular with regular voters. Is it possible that the establishment and invisible puppet masters still push through such candidate to win the 2016 presidential elections? We will discuss this in future predictions.
