HOW WE'RE DOING ON OUR 2017 PREDICTIONS
On February 2 we listed 16 predictions for 2017. Some were meant as a jjoke, like "Nobody will die if we repeal ObamaCare". But others were serious, such as the one related to how illegal immigration and voter fraud in California are intertwined and that the Democrats will be uncovered as running this scam for years.
Here's a rundown on the predictions and how we're doing so far, about 1/2 way through the year.
1. EU will lose at least one, if not more, key member(s) and the EU will be well on its way to total destruction. LOSER. WITH BRITAIN BEING THE FIRST TO LEAVE, WE HAVE NOT SEEN ANY FORMAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF ANOTHER COUNTRY INTENDING TO LEAVE.
2. The US will get the UN back in line and Israel's sanctions will be reversed. WINNER. THIS IS HAPPENING. TRUMPS PICK FOR AMBASSADOR TO THE UN NIKKI HALEY IS CRUSHING THE ESTABLISHMENT AT THE UN VERBALLY AND CALLING THEM OUT AS ANTI-SEMITIC AND GENERALLY LAMBASTING THE UN ON A WEEKLY BASIS, SETTING THE TABLE FOR TRUMP TO DEFUND THE UN OR CUT BACK OUR INVOLVEMENT THERE. THE SANCTIONS AND OTHER ANTI-ISRAEL CRAP PASSED BY THE UN WITH OBAMA AND SAMANTHA POWER'S APPROVAL ARE BEING REVERSED.
3. Russia and the US will begin to work together to eliminate ISIS. LOSER: HARD TO TELL WITH ALL THE RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA NOISE GOING ON HERE, SO THIS ONE IS HARD TO CALL, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE A LOSER. ITS NOT CLEAR THAT RUSSIA IS WORKING WITH US ON ANYTHING. OUR DIRECTOR OF CIA THINKS NOT.
4. The Wall in Mexico will begin construction. WINNER. FUNDS HAVE BEEN APPROVED RECENTLY BY CONGRESS, SO CONSTRUCTION SHOULD BEGIN SOON.
5. Democrats will lose many more seats in the 2018 election. WELL THE DEMOCRATS HAVE NOT WON ANY OF THE SPECIAL ELECTIONS SO FAR THIS YEAR. 2018 IS A WAIT AND SEE.
6. California will have a major legal and Constitutional battle on its hands regarding gun laws which will head to the Supreme Court. WINNER. THIS IS OCCURRING RIGHT NOW AS WE WRITE THIS. SOME OF CALIFORNIA'S LAWS ARE NOT ONLY BEING CHALLENGED ON CONSTITUTIONAL GROUNDS, BUT ONE LAW HAS BEEN STOPPED BY A JUDGE IN THE STATE, WHO GRANTED A TEMPORARY STAY IN RE THE LARGE CAPACITY MAGAZINE LAW.
7. An investigation into voter fraud and illegal immigration will uncover Democrat Party fraud at the highest levels and in particular, will uncover fraud in California. WINNER. THE INVESTIGATION NOT ONLY BEGAN, BUT THE COMMISSION MADE REQUESTS TO ALL STATES TO TURN OVER RECORDS. OF COURSE, CALIFORNIA REFUSED, AS WE EXPECTED. THEY HAVE A LOT TO HIDE SO THEY WILL OBSTRUCT AND SCREAM AND YELL UNTIL THE BITTER END. ITS PROBABLY WHY THEY HIRED ERIC HOLDER EARLIER IN THE YEAR, TO PREPARE FOR BEING CALLED OUT FOR A CRIMINAL "RICO-LIKE" SCAM ON THE PART OF DEMOCRATS IN THE STATE FOR DECADES.
8. The DOW will go nearly to 25,000. WE'RE NOT THERE YET, BUT ITS CLIMBING AND CLIMBING. SO FAR SO GOOD. WE STAND AROUND 21,500, UP SIGNIFICANTLY FROM WHEN TRUMP GOT ELECTED.
9. Nobody will die as a result of the repeal of ObamaCare. THIS IS WHAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE CLAIMED IN ORDER TO SCARE THE POPULACE INTO HATING TRUMP AND HIS POLICIES. WE ARE WAITING FOR THE REPEAL.
10. If Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and other major cities remain in Democrats hands at the local and state level, they will continue to be failures and a blight on our landscape. NOTHING HAS GOTTEN BETTER AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE STILL IN CONTROL OF THESE CITIES. IN FACT, THINGS ARE WORSE. OUR EPIDEMIC OF HOMELESSNESS AND DRUGS IN THE CITIES IS AT ALL TIME HISTORICAL HIGHS AND IT APPEARS THAT MOST DEMOCRAT RUN CITIES ARE PLUNGING DEEPER INTO POVERTY AND CRIME AND NOT MOVING THE OTHER WAY. JUST RECENTLY THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA IS LOOKING TO GIVE UP ON FIGHTING DRUGS AND CREATE "SAFE ZONES" FOR ADDICTS TO SHOOT UP. SAD TO THINK OUR COUNTRY - OUR PEOPLE - WILL BE VIEWED BY OTHERS IN THE WORLD AS A BUNCH OF DRUG USING, OBESE, JOBLESS LOSERS. BUT LET US REMEMBER THAT OBAMA AND CLINTON DESTROYED MOST OF THE MANUFACTURING JOBS IN OUR COUNTRY AND HAS LEFT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO WOULD OTHERWISE HAVE BEEN WORKING IN A FACTORY OUT ON THE STREET.
11. The economy will begin to grow at a rate faster than at any time under Obama. HASN'T OCCURRED YET - HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL TAX CUT COMES IN AND THEN LOOK BACK AROUND 12-24 MONTHS AFTER THAT OCCURS.
12. We will gain several million jobs. WINNER. THIS IS HAPPENING.
13. Taxes will be lowered both for corporations and for individuals. LOSER. HASN'T HAPPENED YET.
14. California will attempt to leave the union but it will be unsuccessful. LOSER. THEY HAVEN'T PUT UP A REAL TRY YET, BUT THEY'RE ACTING LIKE THEY'RE ALREADY NOT PART OF THE USA.
15. A Republican candidate will emerge in California that will energize the voting base and begin the long process of reinstating Republican control of the state, although this will not happen for several years. WINNER. WE HAVE OMAR NAVARRO LOOKING TO RUN FOR CONGRESS AGAINST CRAZY-LADY MAXINE WATERS. IT'S A START.
16. We will go to the brink of war with Iran. WE HOPE NOT, BUT THE RHETORIC IS SCARY, AS IT IS WITH NORTH KOREA.
