but that "ain't how I roll"
psychic predictions (in order to have some chance at being "accurate") have to be "given" from a place of complete neutrality
so when I say "Trump is going to resign", it is not because this is what I want, it is because it is what (as someone whose electric bill will get paid, or not, based on how accurate others think I "am" at doing this)
I "see happening"
but throw all that out the window -- because I am RIGHT HERE going to give my "opinion". My opinion and my predictions may go hand in hand or they may not
and to understand what I see "happening", I will often build a theoretical model to try and "explain" what I see
but this takes me into the realm of "oh is that Andy, or Andy 'the Psychic' ??"
anyway -- my "opinion"
and, as such, you can call it my "Conspiracy Theory" of the 2016 Election
Had the Democrats had ANY viable name brand political rock star candidates to throw into the mix OTHER than Bernie or Hillary, they would have won in 2016
Because a small group LOVE one candidate does not mean he is a viable candidate in a mixed race -- that being Sen. Sanders
and a person under the kind of cloud that followed Sec. Clinton was likely to bring out more haters than supporters
by choosing to make Hillary the face of the Democratic Party, they ran the risk that those who disliked her would be energized and those who passively said "wow, is this the best you have?"
might lose "faith"
the Republicans "needed to win", the Democrats thought "yes it would be good if we won, I hope we do"
so, straight off, the Democrats threw the election by choosing a candidate so many people actively disliked
and then there is Trump
a charismatic wild card, entertaining, with enough "what ifs" to be a viable alternative to the tried and true
the Republicans hitched their wagon to Jesus and so the stylistic short-sleeved dress shirt Sunday go to meeting universe felt they would be "heard"
and that was the election . . . Jesus drove people to the polls, Satan made them stay home
but the people who voted for Trump because Jesus thought he would be a good fit were idiots
because if you even took a moment to think about his style of doing things you would have to take pause wondering "will that possibly work in a place like Washington, DC?"
and to me, straight from trump, the answer was "nein"
so, a hype machine fronted by a man who enjoyed hype and certainly enjoyed being the front man "being hyped"
a perfect marriage
until you wake up and go "OMFG will you ever put the damn toilet seat down after you pee !!"
and that is what's happening with Trump -- sure he is fun to watch and yeah, it is great when you go to dinner and everyone shows up and the party is on
but really, my husband is a dick and is starting to embarrass me and now I just want him to go back to whatever dung heap sprung him
yeah, that is where we are
and even though your friend Suzie, the girl you know from Accounting, thinks he's cute and funny and whatever
she doesn't share a bathroom and the Tammy anthem (stand by your man) ain't on heavy rotation this week
so now you want to move on
and there is this pushy dude smoldering on the sidelines, your hubbie's business partner and even though he says polite things and doesn't make any sudden moves
you can tell when he looks at you that there are wheels turning and given half a chance he would sneak you off into the closet and pound you
and that "tension" is always there . . . let's call him "Mike"
and your husband, God love him, wants to toe the line but when he goes out and even though you've heard the same damn story 4000 times, he says "well the Johnsons, they LOVE it when I tell my story of when I went fishing in Montana and the humpback whale jumped on our boat when I started singing to him"
and "yeah, well, they kept pouring the Glenlivit and I'm sorry I am really really sorry how often do I have to say I am sorry"
so the metaphor -- now "the meat"
I think Trump conspired with the Russians all along to win
I think the Intelligence Community knew all along he conspired with the Russians to win
knew before the election . . . and were "told" to let it slide
I think Trump was bait to get Pence into office
and I think Trump is egotist and idiot enough to not realize he was making a deal with the Devil, one that could go wrong in ways he couldn't imagine
so -- I think the "plan" was to get Pence in all along and he was stockpiled, quietly, in the wings while the madman rock star created havoc . . . enough havoc that the "team" could steal Martha Washington's quilt collection while people were looking the other way
Trump "failed" his internship -- the most delicious irony of all
and the intelligence community has the goods on him, because they were "tasked" with keeping these things "just in case"
and since Trump can't sugar coat anything and make it work now it is time for the heavy hitters to start hitting
translated -- every piece of evidence to hang Trump is already in place to do just that
it was all, straight from Trump, "engineered" to make people thankful
they now have Pence
and that will go on for a very short-time before they realize they've been played just like Trump
a coup, but the first one (with Trump) "failed"
now they will try it under a different banner
PT Barnum wannabee gangsta traded up for a true O.G.
Trump is not as bad as he appears, Pence is worse
and so even though I think Trump has to G O
I worry that Pence will bring a different kind of hammer
and he is organized and ruthless in ways Trump is not
I believe Trump was a flyer, if he somehow can pull this off, we'll let him continue
but if he fucks up -- the way we expect, we have the goods to make him go quietly, as quietly as a loud-mouthed egotist with ZERO filters can go
Pence is who they wanted all along -- and he could have never won without Trump doing the talking
but talk is cheap . . . now it is time to collect
and there you go -- a set up engineered behind the scenes, all along
Jesus wants Pence (although we all know this ain't true)
. . . but I don't
doesn't matter, Pence is next in line
and then, the fair haired boy I said in 2012 would be "maneuvered" into power . . . Congressman Ryan
is one step from the throne
I did a past life analysis before the election and said the weakest of the three, the one with the least political "history", was Trump
the others, Pence and Ryan, had LOTS, Trump very little
it is game the fuck on now boys and girls -- you wanted a world where free enterprise could do its thang
strap in . . . it is about to "get real"
