Crazy Times : Predict What Happens Next!

By Rew   Aug 10, 9:22pm   2 links   933 views   50 comments   watch (0)   quote      

Got any predictions for the world? Share em if ya like, for funs.

Here are my guess for the next couple months (crystal ball):

Who actually rules the chaos in the US?: Mattis, McMasters, Kelly, Tillerson : this is now the "axis of adults". They are a new power base. Russian bots and alt-right were unable to unseat McMasters. This is our actual ruling body for the remainder of the Trump era. More may be added to it. They will be an effective and lasting counter to the alt-right and Bannonites.

Congress and Policy: Debt ceiling causes a huge rift as the GOP tears itself apart deepening the wedge between the Freedom Caucus loonies and the remainder. Tax reform is exactly as successful as Helathcare repeal was. Little of anything continues to be the order of the day. It moves farther away from Trump.

N Korea: It's all talk and bluster on both sides. These men speak very loudly and have very very very small missiles. We might move some of the fleet around. Maybe a few missiles fly around and splash in the water. Would be really cool to shoot one of N Korea's missiles down, but I think if we do it, we might give too much of our current capabilities away to other adversaries. We may never do something like that but it would be a huge boost for Trump/red-blooded American males.

The Stock Market: Now mostly ruled by ETFs, mutual funds, and trades controlled by algorithms/machines, it remains optimistic in the face of most anything geo-political or domestic. VTX continues its ultra low levels. Stock market continues its upward trend, maybe at more modest gains. If it does turn, I believe this will be our actual crisis for the US (an economic one), but I'm not sure when and what may push it that way.

Mueller and Russia, Russia, Russia: Flynn continues to deal and talk. More evidence and material is gathered. Trump remains fuming but leaves Sessions and Mueller in place.

... totally foolish to predict the completely chaotic and unpredictable reign we are under right now, but for fun, let's see how close this is.

Trump is pretty surely not about to start a war. The question is, is he full of aimless bluster, just having a nuclear dick contest with Un, or does he have some bit of strategy in mind? He already provoked a response from China. He has escalated tensions. Perhaps he thinks that increased tensions are necessary to achieve the next step. Is he trying to distract us from something? Who knows? Maybe he is trying to get Un to blow up Guam, so we can blow up Un? Seems like an extremely high price to pay.
Nobody really knows his strategy, so the only thing that keeps us from getting overly worried is that both Kim and Don have a history of making grandiose threats that nobody believes will be carried through.

Oh. Prediction is that nothing happens next.
I'm almost more curious about how he's attacking McConnel. He's trying to convince people that everything about Obamacare was Obama's fault, even though Congress wrote it. But, anything that happens or fails to happen on his watch is Congress' fault, b/c Trump doesn't write legislation. He's convinced a few posters on this board, but a lot of his supporters know that he promised great healthcare for everybody really cheap. Instead, they are getting is a nuclear dick contest with a fat kid. That's one hell of a bait and switch.

THE LIBERATED 'DONNA' TRUMP ISSUES A LINE OF TRUMP BRAND WEDDING DRESSES: Trump's organization is reforged into a 'trust-fund twit liberation front' to help worthless inheritors of wealth be 'worthy human beings' by 'dedicating themselves to the entertainment and pleasure of real men.'

Gentle Reader,

Marketing idea: Wedding Dress should come with a strap-on of her/his choice at 50% off MSRP.

Maybe it's because their brains work differently than men's, and they prioritize housework over ejaculating their ideas into the ether. Maybe they just aren't as smart, so they have to spend more time working and less time bullshitting to get the same amount done. Maybe they have to accomplish more for the same reward, so they are stuck working. Maybe they'd just rather don a wedding dress and get pounded in the ass by a real man like Putin than read about it online. Nobody knew that interpreting comments could be so hard.

Would it not be a deviation from a continued trend? What could explain it other than the instability and uncertainty around the President, administration, etc.

If the argument is that the whole system is bad, and Trump is the destroying fire needed, then would you not "credit" him for tanking the economy? You cannot have it both ways.

President's inherit the problems and benefits of the previous administration, but by their behavior and actions, they often fix some things and have other problems of their own making. It's not as if Trump will be blamed for a meteorite destroying half the Earth or any natural disasters. His reactions to those crises? Sure. But the economy on his watch will be of his own making or reacted to poorly as well.

Eventually the inertia of the Obama era will be gone. USA is running on fumes and tweets.

Secrecy is unfortunately a primary motivation and the source of self-conflict that may end up costing millions of people their lives in the nations of our allies who we have managed to make dependent on the protection of the United States.

Pretty sure The Donald is attempting to avert war with NK by making these extremely harsh and militant statements. He can't afford to waffle and waver like Obummer did, now that Kim Jong Fucktard has nukes and missiles to put them on. He's got to be like: you take ONE STEP out of line and we send your country to the fucking Stone Age! Asshole! I will fuck your world! Just dare me to press this shiny red button, fucker! I want to so very badly!!!!

It'll take talk like that to make that Kim shithead back off and settle down. Appeasement from the last three Presidents has only emboldened him to make new demands and threats, while giving him time to build nukes.

We have capacity to shoot down whatever shitty rockets he launches, and we've had it for a while. Guam will be fine. It's got two air force bases and tons of defenses.

Trump's tough talk is giving the North Koreans fair warning, and also backing the Chinese into a corner where they've finally stated that aggression against the USA would mean they wash their hands of NK and let the USA humble Kim, Chloe, and maybe even Kylie Jong iL.

That's the most retarded thing you've ever said.

China or Russia could easily mistake a nuclear weapon targeting North Korea for targeting them. You do realize that North Korea borders both Russia and China and that North Korea is a tiny target next to those two countries?

Thank god that you aren't in charge of the military. You'd do something damn stupid that would result in the other side mistaking it for a first strike and then it'd be nuclear war and the end of humanity.

Bullshit. There have already been damn close calls of starting accidental nuclear war. If an ICBM is launched from America, there is no way to tell what its target is or if it will alter its course. Nor would anyone take the risk that America wouldn't use this opportunity to strike their country.

If the missile is launched from a submarine or aircraft carrier, it's even worse. Not knowing how many subs are hidden would require assuming a first strike and immediately retaliating.

You are the biggest fool in the world if you think using nukes isn't damn dangerous.

So when NK launches an ICBM the world should go all out and destroy them, because no-one knows where their ICBM is going. It could be going to Moscow or Beijing.

No one ever said that the U.S. shouldn't handle North Korea or even use wise military action. You are the only one proposing that launching nukes at them is the wise solution. That's idiotic.

You think like a cave man, that everything can be solved by clubbing your rival to death. That's damn dangerous thinking in the nuclear age.
