You were a bit itchy on the trigger with Saudi, but it looks set to happen by 2020.

The Federal Reserve bailed out Europe already, from 2007 forward. European banks (or their "American subsidiaries") were at one point beneficiaries of ZIRP and QE actions on a scale equal to or greater than Wall Street. Neither side seems to have had an interest in trumpeting it, however.

I think all of my predictions sucked.

Prediction: Bernie Sanders, with help from GOP operatives, will win the 2016 Democratic nomination.

Surging demand and falling production will reverse the oil crash by July.


I came within a click of buying an oil ETF today but couldn't pull the trigger. It's got to rebound at some point, right? Hell I still might do it. But probably not. Having commodities in my Roth IRA seems ghetto somehow.

Prediction: Oil prices will skyrocket before the end of 2016 because I refused to buy low and the Universe is punishing me.

If you insist, I guess the bet is on...

Technically Friday I'd be amused to see the political suicide of Rand Paul by his addition to the Trump ticket, as you imagine is coming (will not happen!). Except he already died, politically, didn't you notice? Yeah, it was pretty hard to catch all the bodies dropping in the background of the Republican Candidate Massacre, like in a movie where Steven Seagal just mows down mooks for 90 minutes. I thought the Father Paul 2008 thing was a real movement, if very limited and not my, ahem, teacup, but it proved pretty easy to roll into the Tea Astroturfing, and has now been right swallowed up into the Boss Trump Show. Without a trace.

OK, I will make a prediction, but only because it’s in the data dump and few people will read it. Like others I make ‘predictions’ and for the most part they are wrong. I trace this to excessive self regard and a natural tendency to see the world through a lens that all too often is an expression of personal pretences.

Still I noticed a few weeks ago a ‘news’ item that claimed that two ships from Galveston, turned around in the middle of the ocean rather than add to the Que of ships off the coast of Europe waiting for a better price.

This leads to a prediction of war, -soon, because the big boys do not like waiting on a ‘free’ market to chew up the ‘commodities’ that we produce.
All these things will continue as long as coercion remains a central element of our mentality.

Luther: if by conservative you mean pro-corporate who are at least for Roe v. Wade, yeah.

Otherwise, here's a kind of set of predictions:

And I respect your choice, although mine (given the conveniences of living in New York) is not the same. And there is no excuse for voting for or apologizing for Trump. There is no universe in which he is the "lesser evil," or for that matter the tactically better choice because we get more space to fight him than we get in fighting a Clinton administration.

Unknowable factors notwithstanding, like whether we get a "Cyber 9/11" right after the election. Something like that may be in the works regardless of who wins the Ugliness Pageant. The Deep State has the resources for attempts to instantly turn consensus narratives. We unfortunately do not.

I'm calling it for Trump, by a slight landslide. The Deplorables™* are mad as hell, and they're not gonna take it any more. The FBI's incredible speed-reading feat will have been the last straw for many of them.

Meanwhile, a sizable number of young people who might otherwise automatically have voted Democrat -- and who, I'm told, use this "Internet" thing -- will have been angered by the Bernie Sanders debacle/betrayal/scam, and increasingly disturbed by the WikiLeaks revelations: not to mention their own debts, their own career prospects, and the distinct possibility of war with Russia under a Hillary-neocons regime. They may well abstain, vote Green, or even press the button for Trump on impulse once they're alone in that booth.

To get Hillary installed, there'll have to be some really blatant rigging of the machines and/or a "terrorist" attack on the Homeland between now and January. Both of which are very risky strategies, because the Deplorables are no longer willing to believe anything they are told by anyone in DC or in the "liberal" media. (Even if there is in fact no rigging at all, which is barely imaginable, they still won't believe it. Why should they?) Or maybe a pretext for war with Russia will be found sometime in the next few weeks.

High times ahead.

Damn I'm good at this. What should I predict next? I predict that Trump will make a brilliant President. That he'll be re-elected. That he'll unite America behind the idea of, well... America.

I have to give props to this because of how the polls looked at the time. I predicted the same, but much earlier when the situation was more fluid. Well done.
