PREDICTIONS THAT MAY BE FULFILLED LATE. Some of these may not be fulfilled until 2020. Those that have been fulfilled appear
(or will appear) in the section below this one.
Tragic Death of Female Icon,
A Diana-Like Figure
When 1990 came around, no major actress similar to the likes of a Thelma Todd, Carole Lombard, Carole Landis, Marilyn Monroe, or Sharon Tate died. Two well-loved but lesser known actresses Susan Oliver and Jill Ireland did die a day apart from cancer that year, and they died young.
The next Marilyn would end up being Diana, the Princess of Wales, in August 1997 ... a woman famed for her beauty and for her humanitarian work.
How or why did this trend change to include Diana? Technically, because Princess Grace was, after all, originally the very famous American actress Grace Kelly. It was because of Grace Kelly's becoming a princess, I believe, that Princess Diana, was set up to become the next prominent victim. Although Diana never acted, she was endlessly photographed and videotaped for glamour and fashion news and magazines, and also began doing some real modelling in the final months of her life. At the time of her tragic death she was the most famous and most popular woman in the entire world.
Seven years later, in 2004, many close calls for actresses occurred, Shelley Long being most well-known of the group. Long came very close to ending up exactly like Carole Landis or Marilyn Monroe, proving that the past influence that killed them and others on the timeline was still very much alive and highly active.
And in 2011, there was instead a return to the type of event that occurred in 1976 when famous socialite Priscilla Davis was almost murdered during an attack that left her boyfriend Stan Farr and her daughter Andrea Wilborn dead, and in 1983 when another famed socialite, model Vicki Morgan, was the victim of a most sensational and brutal murder. The 2011 event was the bizarre and highly suspicious hanging death of Rebecca Zahau, girlfriend of well-known CEO Jonah Shacknai. Today it is regarded as one of the strangest, most spectacular, and possibly unsolved homicides of a woman in history, up there on the list with the Black Dahlia and Lana Clarkson. Written off as a suicide, as if the nearly impossible manner of her carrying out such an act in such a public fashion was not enough (she was found hanging outside, in clear view to passersby, from a window), an additionally kinky ingredient of her being completely naked was added.
I don't like dredging up that case much anymore as it was doted on enough at the time it happened. But some background needs to be in place. It is important to note that a major actress has not succumbed tragically on this timeline since the heinous murder of Sharon Tate in 1969, unless we include former actress Grace Kelly, dying in her later role as Princess of Monaco in late 1982. Otherwise, it has all been minor actress tragedies (1990), close calls (2004 and 2011), and scandalous socialite murders (1976, 1983, and 2011).
It seems to me that if there is a danger to anyone in 2018, it would have to be someone who comes in close to being another Princess Diana, and possibly one who is an actress. And there is only one person I can think of who fits that description:
Angelina Jolie is more admired around the world than or , according to a new survey. YouGov, a market research firm, polled to find out the world's most admired men and women, and released their analysis over the weekend.
Dear Reader, As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. Nevertheless, traditional business models are no longer sustainable and high-quality publications, like ours, are being forced to look for new ways to keep going. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.
Angelina Jolie is doing more than anyone else in Hollywood to speak out against ISIS and sexual violence in Syria and Iraq. The 40-year-old actress and UNHCR special envoy testified before British Parliament on Tuesday, discussing how ISIS has used rape as a form of "policy" in unprecedented ways.
I am not saying, at this point in time, that the danger to Angelina Jolie in 2018 will come from ISIS ... but it could. My initial concern is that, like Princess Grace and Princess Diana, Angelina Jolie is likely to fall victim to a fatal accident, probably in a car or plane. As to whether it might actually be an accident is something that may well be long debated if it happens.
But the point of posting this is to see that it DOESN'T happen.
ISIS is an abomination, and what it has done to both men and women is frightening and repulsive. They are capable of anything.
One can see that although Angelina Jolie is not royalty as was Grace Kelly and Princess Diana, she is a major global diplomat and humanitarian, something that Princess Diana also was. That is enough, in my opinion, to place her in some sort of danger when August/September 2018 rolls around.
One part of the world Princess Diana did not visit as often as she did other places in Africa, Asia, and the Balkans during and following the Bosnian civil war was the Middle East. Her major link to that region was the man she was dating at the time of her death: Egyptian multimillionaire and playboy, Dodi al-Fayed. Rumors persist that it was discovered during a post-mortem that Diana had been pregnant with a male child by Dodi.
Princess Diana was reportedly pregnant at the time of her fatal car crash, a fact that sources say was covered up for years after here death. There have been past rumors of a pregnancy for Princess Di, and in this week's issue of magazine, a source claimed that she was indeed pregnant with boyfriend Dody Fayed's baby when she died in 1997.
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
Diana was pursued and killed. If she was pregnant, she failed to fulfill the prophecy. In this instance, the red dragon won. The red dragon, by the way, is the symbol for Wales ... Diana was the Princess of Wales. Diana was the name of the Roman moon goddess, also known as Artemis in the Greek. The sun stands for the sun god Apollo.
I believe Revelation 12 is linked to the vision Jeane Dixon had in 1962 concerning the birth of a future messiah.
Revelation 12 tells us that the woman "is clothed with the sun." Nefertiti, along with her husband, was also a sun worshipper. When both appear in Jeane Dixon's vision, they materialize from out of the brightness of the sun. Dixon does not make mention of Nefertiti also being connected to the moon, but it doesn't mean there is no linkage. In the case of Princess Diana, if she had been this latter day Nefertiti, "the moon under her feet" passage from Revelation 12 would simply be a way of identifying her name, Diana, with the moon goddess of the same name. Some believe Nostradamus identified the Egyptian "prince," Dodi al-Fayed, as "the dead Apollo" in one quatrain. Clearly, Diana and Dodi came very close to fulfilling the prophecy of Revelation 12, and if there had been a child, the vision experienced by Jeane Dixon. Again, aside from her connection to Dodi, Diana was not often to be found in the desert nations of the Middle East. However, as we have already seen in the article above concerning ISIS, Angelina Jolie is. She has been in Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt.
Jolie also is to play the role of Cleopatra in an upcoming movie to be filmed in 2016 with a tentative projected release either late in the year or in 2017. Then again, the film may never get made. In any case, there are definite ties to Egypt there. Husband Brad Pitt and Angelina have spent much time in that country since June 2012.
Jolie had both ovaries and Fallopian tubes removed. For her to become pregnant would require a miracle. Yet, such miracles do happen and make major news when they do. Such a miracle child would without question have the attention of the entire planet.
The wilderness mentioned in Revelation 12 simply means the places where there are desert sands and scant vegetation. Thus, the woman will be hidden in the desert for a period of 1,260 days: 42 months (3 1/2 years). Still, if Dixon's vision is related to Revelation 12, she will be murdered, stabbed in the back by an assailant. Thus, if Angelina Jolie is the woman of Revelation 12, and the dragon in this case represents an antichrist system, possibly either the Sufyani (ISIS) or the Dajjal of Islamic prophecy, she will be attacked but escape in August/September 2018, only to be captured and killed 42 months later ... in February/March 2022. Again, this is a big "if" that Angelina Jolie is the woman of Revelation 12. Still it is not something to be entirely dismissed. And in any event for the other reasons given above the Revelation 12 section, I believe she is the most likely female icon to be in danger of death in 2018.
What will happen if this kind of event is prevented? Think in terms of the film series, Final Destination.
Unfortunately, it's a lot like the Final Destination movies ... another trend from the timeline will likely be substituted. This could mean another scandalous socialite murder like Vicki Morgan's or Rebecca Zahau's; another series of close calls terminating in a near-tragic event similar to what almost happened to actress Shelley Long in 2004; the premature deaths (probably due to an illness like cancer) of several moderately successful actresses in middle age similar to 1990; the tragic death of a male actor (which also occurs infrequently on this timeline, James Dean in 1955, Sal Mineo and Jack Cassidy in 1976, and Christopher Reeve in 2004) ... or else a return to the shocking suicides, accidental deaths, or heinous murders that plagued eleven major actresses and one famous female dancer/choreographer every seven years without fail from 1899 until 1969.
A review of the twelve names:
It is quite possible that singer and occasional feature film actress Whitney Houston died due to this timeline a few months late in February 2012. Like actress Carole Lombard who died in a plane crash seventy (7 x 10) years earlier in January 1942, just missing the September 1941 window of opportunity by four months, Whitney Houston's deliberate drugs overdose/drowning death on February 11, 2012 missed the target period of August/September 2011 by five months. Also, and possibly more than ironically, the apparent suicide of singer Whitney Houston occurred 49 (7 x 7) years to the very day after the suicide by oven gas inhalation of celebrated female poet Sylvia Plath on February 11, 1963. Plath's was the same method of suicide taken by actress and singer Kitty Melrose in 1912. It is possible that Sylvia Plath's death was a late repeat for what was then an August 1962 vector, one that did bring about the overdose death of actress Marilyn Monroe.
Thus, it is possible that the doomed destiny of Sylvia Plath, sometimes called the Marilyn Monroe of the poetry world, was actually linked to that of Monroe's, occurring six months later. This would explain why there have been no base 7 repetitions of Sylvia Plath's suicide on a 1963 timeline ... except for Whitney Houston's suicide, which was itself likely a late realization of what was supposed to have happened in August or September 2011.
UPDATE (6/29/18): I am concerned since the hanging suicides of fashion designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain that we have witnessed a sort of replay of the death of fashion designer Gianni Versace in 1997 (21 years ago), although that was a murder. We all know what happened later on at the end of August: the accident that killed Princess Diana (an accident that many still think was a murder). It may or may not be Angelina Jolie, but whoever it is it may well appear to be a suicide or a suicide that is actually a murder. The hanging death and likely murder of Rebecca Zahau was a possible preview ... and I have long argued that a scenario similar to that one may happen to a blonde female celebrity on the next Marilyn Monroe/Diana pass ... coming up again in August/September of this year. In the past I have always thought that might be pop icon Madonna, but it is impossible to say at this point as there are absolutely no clues. But it is best to keep her in mind, she may indeed be in danger this time around.
But I am doubtful, as virtually all suicide deaths on this timeline, including two accidents and one murder, have happened to blonde actresses (Shelley Long is blonde). Of course Angelina Jolie is dark-haired, but has played a blonde in some films. It is also still only July ... and August or September (or even later in close call cases) have been the major months for a very long time.
It is possible Demi Lovato's close call is a CLUE ... for Demi Moore or Courtney Love? Both have had close calls in the past.
Singer Demi Lovato has been hospitalized after suffering an apparent drug overdose, a source close to her family tells CNN.
In a newly-released 911 call, an assistant for Demi Lovato calls paramedics and tells them that the singer is unconscious in her bed. This unnamed assistant comes across as surprisingly calm while talking to the dispatcher, as you can hear in the following video: HOWEVER, a new report wants to make something very clear.
Demi Lovato is opening up about her struggle with mental health, and the role it's played in her life since she was a child. The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer sat down with Dr. Phil for an interview, which airs Tuesday, and she got candid about how she first felt suicidal when she was a young child.
Demi Lovato is experiencing "complications" and remains hospitalized following her apparent drug overdose, two sources close to the singer tell CNN.
THE UPDATE NOT POSTED THAT IS BEING POSTED NOW:
THE SUICIDE DEATH OF ACTRESS MARGOT KIDDER
Obviously, there was no reason during that period of time to bring attention to her death in this prediction. However, on August 8, 2018, news services began revealing the truth: that Margot Kidder had committed suicide by deliberate and fatal drug overdose while also intoxicated with alcohol. The drug used has not been revealed.
I did not see the reports when they came out August 8. It was sometime after the huge November 8 update below concerning Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their never ending divorce proceedings and the impact that had on the prediction regarding Ms. Jolie that I became aware of the reports and the change of Ms. Kidder's death from natural causes to suicide. Even then, considering her age, I thought it might not have any bearing on this timeline of tragedy involving a large number of famous women and a few men, most of them actresses and actors, whose age at time of death ranged from 24 to 52, with the majority of them in their 20s and 30s. Kidder was 69.
So, even on January 2, 2020, when I put up the new foreword to this prediction, regarding the two-year lags in many recent base 7 events, and of the likely change from a Diana type tragedy to a Marilyn Monroe type coming in 2020, I did not yet seriously consider Margot Kidder as being the one predicted ... and the August 2018 revelation of her death being a suicide spot on to the August/September 2018 vector.
However, after some deliberation, I am reminded that one other glamorous and famous female committed suicide on this timeline on March 17, 1990. French fashion model and actress Capucine jumped to her death from her eighth-floor apartment in Lausanne, Switzerland... at the age of 62. So, one other female in her 60s was on this timeline, although still seven years younger than Margot Kidder.
But we must also accept the fact that the life expectancy was extended to approximately age 82 almost a decade ago. As a result, as they say anyway, 40 is the new 30, 50 is the new 40, 60 is the new 50, and 70 is the new 60. And the life expectancy still climbs, although suicide and drug use has been factored into the average resulting in a "drop" of the life expectancy to 78. But if those things are not factored in (and they never were before), we may well be seeing the normally calculated life expectancy has reached 85 or 86. At that current rate, by the 2030s, 60 may well become the new 40 and 70 the new 50.
We in part define a death as tragic if it is needless but also if it happens before one's time. Forty-five years ago, 69 was almost the life expectancy of 70. Today a 69-year-old woman may well live another 15 years or longer and a 69-year-old man another 10 to 13 years. And that may change again radically by 2025 or 2030. Of course there are no guarantees ... there never are. No guarantee even that a newborn baby will live to be 25. Stuff happens ... and it's not always very nice or very fair. Hence the concept of tragedy.
The current coronavirus may soon alter what we have come to expect drastically. But here, and for now, we review this death from our perspective as it was in 2018.
Margot Kidder died needlessly and tragically at what was (and perhaps still is) the new "young" age of 69 ... 14 (2 x 7) years after her famous costar from four Superman films, actor Christopher Reeve, died tragically at the age of 54 ... died from an infectious condition that was created by injuries to his spinal cord 14 years earlier in a fall from a horse. Thus, it is quite possible that this prediction was fulfilled with the suicide death of actress Margot Kidder in May 2018. We should know most certainly by early 2021.
WARNING: I'll present this data "algebraically" for the sake of making associations. All data has been discussed above in this prediction somewhere.
2004 = 2018
Christopher Reeve = Margot Kidder
Shelley Long = Demi Lovato
2006 = 2020
Adrienne Shelly = ?
This "?" still potentially remains to be answered this year in 2020. Margot Kidder, because she was the costar of Christopher Reeve in the Superman films, makes her death in 2018 like his death in 2004. Thus, in turn, the near suicide by drug overdose of actress Shelley Long in 2004 is like the near suicide by drug overdose of singer/actress Demi Lovato. The first name of Shelley Long ("Shelley") was the last name of Adrienne Shelly ("Shelly") who was murdered two years later in 2006. Will someone with a name associated with "Demi" or "Lovato" ("Love" for example) commit suicide or be murdered in 2020? The situation still presents itself.
We first learned about Kidder's death after a friend found her body in the actress' Montana home on May 13. At the time, her manager, Camilla Fluxman Pines, confirmed to USA TODAY that Kidder "died peacefully in her sleep.She was 69.
The death of Margot Kidder, an actor best known for her role in Superman, has been ruled a suicide. Kidder, who played Lois Lane opposite Christopher Reeve's Superman, was found by a friend in her Montana home on 13 May. At the time Kidder's manager, Camilla Fluxman Pines, said she had died peacefully in her sleep.
Margot Kidder, who found fame as Lois Lane in the 1978 film "Superman," died Sunday at her home in Montana, her manager confirmed to CNN.
Margot Kidder, the vivacious actress who played Lois Lane opposite Christopher Reeve in the Superman movies and then waged a public battle with bipolar disorder, has died, her manager, Camilla Fluxman Pines, confirmed to USA TODAY. She was 69. Fluxman Pines told USA TODAY that Kidman "died peacefully in her sleep Sunday."
Why Angelina Jolie has not Ended Up Like Princess Diana
and is Still Alive: Her Divorce Is Not Yet Finalized
Update, 4:32 p.m. A source familiar with the situation, tells Vanity Fair, "Brad fulfills his commitments." The original story continues below. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been getting divorced for an eternity. They announced their decision to end their marriage in September 2016, just before the election, an entirely different epoch.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Angelina Jolie on Tuesday sought to move forward with her long and sometimes bitter divorce from Brad Pitt, which has yet to be finalized after almost two years. Jolie's attorney filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court saying the actress wanted a judgment "returning the parties to single status during calendar year 2018."
The prediction above concerning the danger of tragic death (or dramatic escape from such danger) to Angelina remains unfulfilled because the prediction of her divorce from Brad Pitt is only partially fulfilled. Angelina Jolie's divorce has yet to be finalized.
Almost twenty-six months ... a full 850 days ... have elapsed since Angelina Jolie hastily filed to end her marriage to actor Brad Pitt. Thus, the danger to Angelina Jolie has not been prevented but stalled until her divorce is final. A one year (or less) countdown to either a tragic death or her dramatic escape from such a deadly event can not begin for Jolie until her divorce from Brad Pitt is finalized.
Since the base 7 vector for tragedy was to occur in either August or September 2018, there remains at most a two year and two months window for that to still happen. Counting from September 2018 theoretically takes her all the way to November 2020. Thus, the divorce could continue on until finalization as late as November 2019. However, if Angelina's wish for the divorce to be finalized by December 2018 is realized, then the one year (or less) "Diana countdown" will commence sooner, with greatest danger of death by December 2019. I say "or less" simply because these are uncharted waters: an unusually lengthy divorce quite dissimilar to that of Diana and Charles in 1996.
There have been four examples of a female celebrity on the deadly Marilyn Monroe-Sharon Tate-Princess Diana timeline who died well over a year later than the usual vector. Prior to royalty being included in this timeline with Princess Grace of Monaco (the former actress Grace Kelly) and later Princess Diana, this deadly timeline has been overwhelmingly the domain for famous actresses with the exceptions of famous art dancer Isadora Duncan, Indie director (and actress) Adrienne Shelly, and pop singer and sometimes actress Whitney Houston (also the first black on the timeline).
Four exceptions of a somewhat tardy to very tardy repetition on this line of tragic and extremely premature deaths were those of:
1) once again, Whitney Houston, whose Marilyn Monroe type drugs death (or possible human sacrifice) should have occurred in August 2011 but instead happened on February 11, 2012 (six months later). Houston was found submerged and scalded in the hotel bathtub, apparently drowned.
2) independent film actress and director Adrienne Shelly, found hanged from a shower rod on November 1, 2006, died two years and two months after the established September 2004 vector. She had been murdered, hanged with bed sheet and her death made to look like a suicide. One additional note: actress Shelley Long almost died from a drug overdose during a suicide attempt in November 2004. A close call or false flag event, her first name "Shelley" was nearly the same as the murder victim's last name "Shelly." We must bear this in mind since a very similar drug overdose false flag event occurred to actress and singer Demi Lovato two months before the time projected for Angelina Jolie. Could her name be pointing at someone else though ... such as Demi Moore or Courtney Love?
3) actress Carole Lombard who died in a plane crash on January 16, 1942, four months after a September 1941 vector, the month September still outstanding since the death of Isadora Duncan in 1927.
4) and that of Thelma Todd, a highly popular "dumb blonde" actress of the late 1920's and 1930's (1926–1935). Her "time" should have arrived in September 1934, seven years after the horrific and very public death of Isadora Duncan on September 14, 1927. But instead, Todd continued on until her death at age 29 by accidental carbon monoxide poisoning or homicide on December 16, 1935 ... 15 months and two days later.
Here Todd's death is compared in its impact to that of Marilyn Monroe and the murder of Sharon Tate:
The death of Hollywood actress Thelma Todd in 1935 hit the world with the impact of the later death of Marilyn Monroe and the murder of Sharon Tate. During the Depression, the gorgeous blond comedian was a cross between Goldie Hawn and Farrah Fawcett, only more popular.
Thelma Todd, an early film star, seemed to have everything going for her. But she was found dead at 29. The mystery has never been solved.
"Thelma Todd was found in a closed garage on the morning of Monday, Dec. 16. She sat at the wheel of her showy convertible Lincoln Phaeton. The garage sat on a hill high above her night club, and it was owned by Roland West. The coroner quickly ruled that accidental carbon monoxide poisoning had killed Thelma Todd. But soon her friends began raising questions. Three broad areas of suspicion emerged ..."
Can a sort of base 7 "statute of limitations" apply to Angelina if the divorce is not finalized by December of this year, in turn taking her beyond 2019 or even beyond 2020?
First of all an "18 months window" was the original rule of thumb I used to go by. But as time went by, I began to find there were even rarer instances of events that have occurred two years later or even a bit more than two years later than projected. That is happening more and more frequently and may mean we have reached a period of historical correction or, if you will, a correction in the base 7 phenomenon. Events may follow a pattern of every 7 years or at least multiple of 7 years fairly consistently, then some of them may begin to deviate by a few years over the course of a decade or more until a new period of sevens is achieved. The deviation is inconsistent and many events will often retain their "every seven years" capability pretty much forever, while others stretch out and start a new period. How many events deviate may vary from period to period; more in some, less than in others.
For example, the two Yugoslav (Balkans) wars of 1991, the ten-day Slovenian Independence War begun June 26, 1991 and the Croatian War of Independence (Serbo-Croat War) begun October 1, 1991, resumed seven years later (actually six years and eight months later to be precise) in late February 1998 in Kosovo. No repeats occurred in 2005, but another seven years later might well have seen a new Balkans war or else a Balkans-like situation in the Middle East by either February or June 2012.
A Balkans type series of protests and insurrections began with Arab Spring on December 18, 2010 (I predicted several years earlier that it would begin in Egypt in November 2010 for reasons other than the Balkans wars precedent ... I was only off by one month).
Still this was not yet a war.
Like 1991, the wars in the Middle East began as two: 1) The Libyan Civil War begun February 15, 2011 and ending on October 23, 2012 (A Libyan Crisis continues there to this day) and 2) The Syrian Civil War, often wrongly said to have begun with the civil uprisings of March 15, 2011. The Libyan war began the same way, with protests, but within few days there was fighting with military equipment on both sides. Thus the start of the protests and the start of the war were the same.
But not so in Syria.
The early insurgency phase of the Syrian Civil War did not begin until July 29, 2011. However, it was the 2012–13 Escalation to Civil War in Syria, properly speaking, that marked the true start of the real civil war. A UN-mediated cease fire attempt during the end of the early insurgency phase (April–May 2012) deteriorated into radical violence, escalating the conflict level to a full-fledged civil war.
"Following the Houla massacre of 25 May 2012, in which 108 people were summarily executed, and the subsequent Free Syrian Army (FSA) ultimatum to the Syrian Ba'athist government, the ceasefire practically collapsed, as the FSA began nationwide offensives against government troops. On 1 June 2012, President Assad vowed to crush the anti-government uprising. On 12 June 2012, the UN for the first time officially proclaimed Syria to be in a state of civil war. The conflict began moving into the two largest cities, Damascus and Aleppo."
One can say the civil war began in earnest with either the Houla Massacre (May 25, 2012), Assad's formal declaration of war on insurgents (June 1, 2012) or the UN official proclamation that a full state of civil war in Syria was now in progress as of July 12, 2012.
Despite this, the UN later issued a public statement that in their view the civil war should be retroactively regarded as beginning with the protests of March 15, 2011. This remains falsely in history articles and history books to this day. Indeed, in June 2012, there was a huge chasm of disagreement in the UN and international community that Syria had yet reached the stage of a full-blown civil war. Even in July 2012 the king of Jordan thought, at worst, that Syria was still only at the brink of civil war. The fact is that the Assad regime did very little else than engage in self defense measures until May 2012. There is no question what has happened since then.
My projection for the beginning of civil war in Syria was not until July 2013 ... based on the start of the third Yugoslav war, the longest one, the one in Bosnia and also on the start of the Spanish Civil War. Bosnia began in April 1992, Spain in July 1936. I chose July because I felt Spain was the real beginning of World War II and that Syria would be the real beginning of World War III.
So, The Syrian Civil War began a full year sooner than I anticipated. But it did in fact occur twenty-one (21) years after the start of the first two Yugoslav wars in Slovenia and Croatia in 1991 and fourteen years after the beginning of the War in Kosovo. I had a choice between using 1991 or 1992 as the precedent, but chose 1992 rather than 1991 (for reasons given regarding Spain's role in WW2 in 1936).
I also believed the character of the war in Syria would be similar to that of Bosnia: that it would be a war that lingered for nearly four years. In that I was both right and wrong.
And here is where the idea of a base 7 correction or historical correction comes in with late fulfillments of events.
I think we can agree that the whole Yugoslav mess began in 1991 and likewise the Syrian/northern Middle East mess commenced in 2012. We can also agree, however, that Syria most resembles Bosnia.
Even so, Bosnia ran from April 1992 to December 1995: three years and eight months. Even the Serbo-Croat war ended in November 1995, lasting four years and seven months. However you work it, the Syrian war should have ended by either March 2016 or else by February 2017. Yet, here it is November 2018 and it is still ongoing. It has run for over six years and four months.
What could have been the end of the war in March 2016 occurred during a partial cease-fire when Syrian government forces (SGF) with support from Russia and Iran successfully captured Palmyra from ISIL. However, peace failed to be maintained due to the Aleppo Summer Campaign begun in June followed by SDF advances and Turkish military intervention in August.
What could have been the end of the war in February 2017 was the collapse of yet another cease-fire, the Al-Badia school massacre by Russian and US air strikes, and the Khan Shaykhun chemical attack by Syria which resulted in a punitive US air strike with Tomahawk missiles against the Syrian government's Shayrat Air Base (condemned by Russia). This was followed by more attacks by SGF and Turkey, intense fighting near Hama, and Turkish air strikes.
A partial cease-fire was again achieved in July 2017 and lasted until December with some sweeping-up operations of liberation military moves. However, in January 2018 tensions broke out again with more fighting near Hama, the shooting down of an Israeli F-16 fighter jet by Syria, a Turkish attack on Kurdish held positions, and yet another chemical attack by Syria in the city of Douma. On April 14, 2018, the United States, United Kingdom, and France launched missile strikes on multiple government targets in Syria as a response to the Syrian chemical attack. In July a new attack by SGF and Russian forces was led against provinces on Syria's border with Jordan. In September, Israel struck multiple Iranian targets in western Syria and a Russian plane was shot down accidentally by Syria. Russia blamed Israel for the shooting down of the plane. Russia has since been arming Syria with its own deadly S-300 air-defense missile systems with much international opposition. Two days ago it was reported that Israel warned Russia it may target its S-300 missiles systems and yesterday Iran threatened to open up a new war against the US in Syria and Iraq.
Between the end of the Bosnian conflict until the start of the Kosovo War there was a period of over two years of peace (in 1996 and 1997). There has been no peace in Syria, especially one lasting for two years. A new Kosovo in the Middle East should begin in Syria in February 2019, but the Syrian War has never even ended.
The war in Syria has stretched out two years and eight months longer than Bosnia and three years longer than Spain.
This indicates a base 7 period of correction, an historical correction, may well be in place. Instead of a new war (like Kosovo) there may only be further escalation of the existing war in Syria and the adjacent affected regions of Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon, and Israel with continued involvement of Russia, Iran, the US, the Kurds, and ISIS and similar groups. It may spread to Jordan, Egypt, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, UAE, Yemen, Afghanistan, and Saudi Arabia.
By March 2020 it may become a NATO war ... and if that happens, spread north into the Balkans and ignite World War III. It may well last until 21 years after the end of the fourth and last Yugoslav conflict in Macedonia in 2001. That war ended on August 13, 2001. Thus, war can easily continue and escalate in the Middle East until August 2022 by which time it may or may not end. If the period of correction continues, it could extend out three years or more beyond that date (2025 or 2026?).
Then again the war in Syria may finally, and absolutely, end very soon. But even if it does, it has extended far beyond the limits of the conflicts in Croatia and Bosnia in the 1990s or Spain in the 1930s.
Syria therefore is one of the signs we are in an historical or base 7 period of correction.
It may well be that the 2016 election of Donald Trump ushered in the base 7 correction and a new historical period.
Despite all this, for practical purposes I have noted singular repetitive events occurring no later than two years and two months beyond their projected dates. That will be our "statute of limitations" for the time being.
The 2017 Las Vegas shooting by gunman Stephen Paddock on October 1, 2017 is a good example. It was compared many times in the media to the University of Texas tower shooting by Charles Whitman on August 1, 1966. I had used the Whitman case as the precedent for a similar event happening again in August 2015 of a high altitude marksman shooting an even larger number of people on the ground than in Texas. I also said that the event would bring Charles Whitman's crime into remembrance.
But that event seemingly failed to happen ... until October 1, 2017. Total elapsed time after the August 2015 vector was exactly two years and two months. Note also that both events occurred on the 1st of the month.
There have been other cases similar to this in recent years, especially since 2012 and 2013.
It would appear then that 2 years and 2 months is perhaps the time of limitations beyond which an event cannot repeat unless it is repeating a different yet similar event from another timeline. But I will have to research this further. Usually though all is told within 18 months and often less. The Syrian War lasting as long as it has is the only example thus far of a three year delay with one possible reason being that the conflict may be the true beginning of World War 3.
Thus, Angelina Jolie's vector for tragic death or escape from such a fate could be as late as November 2020.
MADONNA PLACES HERSELF IN DANGER
The greatest danger to Madonna over the last 25 years has been the possibility that she will be murdered, although she has certainly had her share of accidents. In the 1990s the danger came in the form of twisted love and adoration when a fan-turned-stalker named Robert Dewey Hoskins threatened to slash her throat and attempted to break into her home twice in 1995. The same stalker escaped from a mental hospital in February 2012 after mentioning to other patients that he still had an urge to kill the pop queen and had also added actress Halle Berry to a new list. A few days later he was found and captured.
Pioneering performances, videos, and songs steeped in the occult and being crowned a goddess based on several actual goddesses from ancient religions during Superbowl halftime at the very least made her appear to be a human personification of The Whore of Babylon. While this may have earned her contempt from Christian religious groups, it was never taken seriously enough to place her in any danger.
Now she is once again what she started out to be: an entertainer and singer/composer. But a highly famous one. No one had endured in the world of pop music as an icon with a global following for as many years as she. Indeed, new prophetic evidence from Nostradamus indicates she may well continue with her career and high profile publicity until the age of 73, then die unexpectedly. There is no way Nostradamus could have overlooked such a blonde-haired figure, one so great she is "supreme" over all others, even if this type of fame was all but unknown back in the mid 1500s. The earliest opera was written and performed in 1597 ... some thirty years after the prophet's death ... and that is lost. The comedies and plays performed in ancient Greece and Rome pre-dated Nostradamus by over a thousand years. The concept of pop music or an entertainment world did not exist. Yet he writes about a future empress who is murdered while "watching the comedy." These things did not exist in his time, but he knew about them all the same.
Nor can we overlook the fact that he says the supreme one with blonde hair will be found naked in bed ... which sounds very much like Marilyn Monroe. The first line of Quatrain 1.39 when read in modern French renders two possibilities depending on the punctuation: "By night, in bed, the supreme strangled, for having been too blonde" or "Naked in bed, the supreme strangled, for having been too blonde" (also "having tarried for too long" or "having endured for too long"). The punctuation used, or if the quatrain is read in Corsican rather than in French ... and Nostradamus did write some of his verses in Corsican ... can change the wording ever so slightly or ever so radically in places. This is why over the years I have produced as many as five different translations of whatever major quatrains I tend to focus on often that have yet to be fulfilled.
Madonna has not made nakedness a big deal in her career since the early 1990s. Now she has, and in a way that arouses anger and even disgust among a wide range of the population ... even among her die-hard fans who have blasted her video as “privileged” ... not because she is naked, but because she is naked, sitting in a luxurious bathtub, wearing expensive jewelry with rose petals floating about her and surrounded by decorative candles, pretending to be just like one of us, preaching to us that the coronavirus pandemic is a great equalizer, as much for her as for us ... yet the picture tells a different story.
Now she has placed herself in danger to a wider community of those who might wish her ill. She could well end up being a late fulfillment of the Marilyn Monroe/Sharon Tate/Princess Grace/Princess Diana and others timeline (sorry, I have never given the timeline an official name) that should have happened in August/September 2018. If Demi Lovato's drug overdose in 2018 was a close call like Shelley Long's was in 2004, will Madonna wind up like Indie actress and director Adrienne Shelly did two years later in November 2006?
For the record the danger vectors would otherwise not be until either December 2021-January 2022 or December 2022-January 2023 (a stalker incident or an accident), it will be one of the two, not both, then again in August 2026 (a stalker incident or else a murder attempt by conspirators), and if Nostradamus can be believed, "most assuredly," by April 2032 ... at the age of 73 (murdered by conspirators). The nature of any conspiracy remains unknown at this time. I also suspect Madonna's face will be as smooth-skinned at 73 as it is now at 61.
As a side note: isn't it odd that until COVID-19 came along, 60 was considered by medical authorities and the media as "the new 50" (and 70 as "the new 60") because of the protracted life expectancy (now at age 83 on average)? So why are they now suddenly saying everyone over 60 (except for rich performers) is expendable???
I am prompted to write this also because she made reference back on March 2 to herself being a "broken doll." This relates to a dream I had back in 2002 where Madonna appears as an unfinished doll and then has an argument with those who run the doll factory and storms out of the building. Those running the doll factory then say "let her go, she is expendable."
Madonna shares new post from her bathtub, claims coronavirus is "the great equalizer" and talks about its impact on the world.
Madonna posts video calling coronavirus "the great equalizer" from a bathtub filled with rose petals
Madonna is facing backlash online after she posted a video to Instagram calling the coronavirus "the great equalizer," while sitting in a bathtub filled with rose petals and surrounded by candles. The clip garnered criticism from some, who accused her of being "out of touch."
SHE is the Queen of Pop and shock - and Madonna has lived up to her name with her latest bizarre behaviour. The singer posted a video on Instagram of herself sitting naked in a bath with rose petals, calling coronavirus "the great equaliser". Madonna said: "That's the thing about Covid-19.
Madonna has baffled fans with a bizarre bathtime video, during which she calls the coronavirus "the great equalizer". The 61-year-old decided to address fans and followers about the pandemic from her bathtub, naked and surrounded by candles. "That's the thing about COVID-19," she preaches in a video posted on social media.
Naked in a milky bathtub of floating rose petals, Madonna has declared coronavirus "the great equalizer" in a bizarre video which was blasted as "privileged" by many of her die-hard fans. The 61-year-old "Material Girl" preaches to her fans from her tub, surrounded by candles and wearing nothing but jewelry, to a background of ominous instrumental music, how the pandemic doesn't care how rich and famous you are.
(Important note: I'm not a doctor but, like Dr. Jekyll, I can get very angry after taking a special serum, or gin as I call it.) Congratulations to the newest member of the European Union ... Madonna. Yes, thanks to an obscure (aren't they all?)
As if 2020 wasn't weird enough already, Madonna may end up replacing the United Kingdom as a member state of the European Union. Because of an obscure EU law unearthed by Politico's Paul Dallison, Madonna can join the organisation because she pledged more money to fight coronavirus than several of its actual members.
Madonna has revealed -- via her "Quarantine Diary" -- that she's tested positive for coronavirus antibodies, and already has a bizarre plan for using them. The Material Girl's known for posting some eccentric material on her Instagram, but she's kicked things up a notch during lockdown ...
Dancer Isadora Duncan made a name for herself as one of the most unique and unrestrained artists to have ever graced the stage. Eschewing custom, tradition, and expectations, Duncan's creative philosophy allowed her to develop a dancing style way ahead of its time.
Madonna might be losing touch with her audience. Since she began social distancing herself amid the coronavirus pandemic, the music icon has been posting her "Quarantine Diaries" on Instagram. The posts - in which she types on a typewriter and vocalizes her inner thoughts - aren't exactly hitting the right buttons and are coming off as bizarre, friends and fans told Page Six.
Madonna has shocked fans by posting a bizarre video while in COVID-19 quarantine. WATCH: Madonna reveals she's lost several friends in the last 24 hours The 'Material Girl' singer took to Instagram on Thursday to share her "quarantine diary" with fans, where she claimed three of her friends have died in the past 24 hours while also slamming her son for bizarre comments.
Madonna is nothing if not a diva, and a diva does not do anything halfway. (Jezebel has at least two past blogs with headlines that contain the words "Madonna" and "stop" which tells an entire story all by itself.) Including, naturally, quarantine.

THE NEXT CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS: NORTH KOREA, VENEZUELA OR ELSEWHERE?
One of two problems I had when I posted the likelihood of a Cuban Missile Crisis repeat (below) was WHERE it would occur. At the time, in 2017, almost anyone would have bet on North Korea. Kim Jong-un seemed as certain to be Trump's version of Castro as anybody. Thus, the "prediction" ended up being given the title "The Korean Missile Crisis: Nuclear War?" I still say it would be folly to write North Korea off, but it appears that history may play out again in the same part of the world as last time: Latin America, and more specifically Venezuela.
Another problem I had was that I had not entirely concluded that we were in a period of historical correction ... and that this would have a profound effect on many base 7 projections, those that dealt with human actions. It had dawned on me that some major events from 2015 had played out anywhere from about two years later to exactly two years and two months later.
I had no immediate explanation for this until I went over old ground: the ground I covered when I developed the base 7 system in the first place.
I had always been bothered by the fact that the neat, every 7 years or multiple of 7 years pattern got extended to something more like 9 or 11 years twice during the 20th Century. The first time was during the Second World War. The base 7 system was very close to being exact in determining the outbreak of World War I and the start of the US war with Japan during World War II. But it was off by four years anticipating the European start of World War II: the German invasion of Poland in 1939. The start of the First Balkan War to the invasion of Poland was off by one year.
Oddly enough, once the Second World War was over, everything fell back into place ... until Vietnam. It was spot on 14 years after the start of the Korean War in 1950 (Gulf Of Tonkin, 1964). But unlike Japan or Korea it did not end in 1967. However, like the end of World War II (1945), Vietnam was at last over in 1973 (28 years apart) .. yet it lasted three years longer than WW2 and six years longer than Korea.
There were other things that were out of whack during these two historical periods, but it is unnecessary to go over all of them. And of course, as now, there were events still following the base 7 system faithfully. In particular, untimely deaths affecting celebrities/stars and natural disasters.
In any event, we are in a peacetime period of historical correction, and the notable extension period of events now is two years longer than normal. Thus, the next Cuban Missile Crisis repeat probably will not happen until 2020. But as that is an election year, it may well happen a year late rather than two, which is why we must watch events in Venezuela closely and, to a lesser extent, the Southern Wall.
Fears of a volatile global war ramped up this week amid a tense stand-off between India and China at a disputed border. The crisis, which began in early May, escalated this week after terrifying satellite footage showed Chinese troops were amassing at the border.

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday ordered the military to scale up the battle preparedness, visualising the worst-case scenarios and asked them to resolutely defend the country's sovereignty.

(Photo: AP/PTI) Howsoever unusual it may sound, Chinese President Xi Jinping has asked its People's Liberation Army (PLA) to prepare for war even though the Covid-19 threat is not clearly over.
Friday on Hugh Hewitt's nationally syndicated radio show, Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) said that given the circumstances of China's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic combined with the nation's aggressive economic practices, the United States had entered a so-called "cold war" with China. | Clips
The U.S. military showcased its "awesome firepower" last week in the Persian Gulf, officials said, the same day it warned vessels in the Mideast against approaching within 100 yards of its warships after encounters with Iranian gunboats. A U.S.
The first of five Iranian oil tankers headed to Venezuela has arrived, amid tension over the possibility the United States could attempt to halt the deliveries. "The first Iranian tanker has reached Venezuela's coasts. Thanks to the Bolivian Armed forces for escorting them," the Iranian embassy in Venezuela tweeted on Sunday.
Venezuela and Iran, U.S. adversaries that are stung by sanctions and hobbled by the coronavirus, are forging a closer strategic partnership, providing embattled President Nicolás Maduro a vital lifeline and offering Tehran the prospect of a new center of influence just across the Caribbean Sea from Florida.
Iran has warned the United States against conducting "piracy" in the Caribbean as five Iranian tankers laden with fuel sail toward Venezuela. The tankers' voyage comes as a senior U.S. official told Reuters on May 14 that the United States was considering what action it could take in response to Iran's shipment of fuel to crisis-stricken Venezuela.
Iran's foreign minister on Sunday warned the United States against deploying its navy in the Caribbean to disrupt Iranian fuel shipments to Venezuela. According to an oil shipment analyst, five Iranian-flagged tankers loaded with tens of millions of dollars worth of fuel are heading towards Venezuela.
Five tankers filled from Iran may be heading to Venezuela, reports indicated over the weekend. TankerTrackers.com, which tracks oil shipments and storage, showed the route of the suspect ships, which allegedly received gasoline at the port of Shahid Rajaee.
Russian soldiers are operating drones over Venezuela as part of a search operation for members of a paramilitary force that led a botched invasion this week, local media reported on Friday, citing deleted tweets from a state military command centre.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned in a statement that "mercenary actions deserve punishment without palliatives." Venezuela 's government said it had arrested two American citizens on Monday on suspicion of plotting to oust Nicolás Maduro's government. The detentions came a day after officials said they curbed an "invasion" from the sea, killing eight assailants and detaining two others.
Venezuela and Cuba argue U.S. military operation in the Caribbean is an attempt to intimidate and distract
President Donald Trump announced the launch of a massive military deployment to the Caribbean and Eastern Pacific earlier this month, ostensibly to fight drug trafficking and help halt the spread of the coronavirus.
When President Donald Trump weighed the options earlier last year to address the political and humanitarian consequences of Nicolás Maduro's tight grip on power in Venezuela, he realized his harsh rhetoric against the South American leader was not backed up by a show of force in the region.
China and Russia are using the coronavirus pandemic to position themselves as world leaders while the United States turns its focus to domestic matters to battle the infectious disease, experts on geopolitical affairs and a senior U.S. intelligence official briefed on the matter told Newsweek.
The Turkish target bank in Syria's Idlib province is steadily expanding. The Turkish Defense Ministry reports that at the start of this week, Turkey destroyed 82 Syrian targets, including nine tanks, two Howitzer mortars, six rocket launchers and two military vehicles, and also killed 299 Syrian soldiers.
Key point: A U.S.-China conflict plays to the strengths both sides have been steadily developing over the past decade One of the most dangerous places in the world is North Korea, and not entirely in the ways one might think.
Turkey may soon be closing the Bosphorus Straits to Russian warships in order to prevent them from continuing to resupply the Syrian regime's military, according to the Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta.
Russian daily newspaper Nezavisimaya Gazeta reported that Turkey has prevented four Russian military aircraft, including two bombers, from crossing its airspace to Syria. Field sources knowledgeable about the Russian Hmeimim Air Base, revealed on Thursday that the Russian forces brought in military reinforcements from the storage facilities of the Russian army to the airbase, in an indication that battles may intensify in north-western Syria.
Russia has lashed out against international powers targeting or disrupting the Syrian armed forces' operations across the country as Damascus' efforts to restore control were met with resistance from at home and abroad.
Iranian and Russian media reported that Russian Sukhoi Su-35 warplanes were scrambled from Russia's Khmeimim air base in northern Syria to intercept an alleged Israeli attack near the Tiyas Military Airbase, also known as the T-4 Airbase earlier this month.
New conflicts in the rest of the world may be looming large, but one in the United States' own backyard is about to get more dangerous. Despite U.S.-led sanctions on Venezuela's state-owned oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), oil from the country is still flowing onto world markets.
With the United States developing a new generation of cruise missiles in response to alleged Russian arms control violations, a response from Moscow was inevitable. But Russian missiles in Venezuela? That's what some Russian commentators are calling for in retaliation for the Trump administration withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.
WASHINGTON - The crisis in Venezuela has been thrust to the top of a list of long-simmering spats between the United States and Russia, with both sides entrenched in diametrically opposed positions from which they are unwilling to retreat.

Great Tokyo Earthquake or Volcanic Eruption Causes Japan to Sink
Prediction originally posted at my main website on 2018 (Part One).
Deadly 6.7 Magnitude Earthquake Devastates Hokkaido, Japan
6.9 Temblor and Powerful Volcanic Eruption Rock Hawaii
A powerful earthquake of magnitude 6.7 on Japan's northern island of Hokkaido caused a landslide that engulfed houses early on Thursday, injuring and trapping a number of people and cutting power in several areas. Current top breaking Philippine headlines regarding the nation, world, metro manila, regions and exclusive special investigative reports.
TOKYO - A powerful earthquake struck Japan's northern island of Hokkaido on Thursday, causing millions of homes to lose power, killing at least 17 people and leaving 26 others missing after a landslide crushed multiple houses.
SAPPORO, Japan -- A powerful earthquake Thursday on Japan's northernmost main island of Hokkaido triggered dozens of landslides that crushed houses under torrents of dirt, rocks and timber, prompting frantic efforts to unearth any survivors. At least nine people were killed, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said.
An (平成30年北海道胆振東部地震, " earthquake measuring 6.6 M W on the moment magnitude scale struck Iburi Subprefecture in southern Hokkaido, Japan, on 6 September 2018 at 3:08 a.m. Japan Standard Time. The earthquake's epicenter was near Tomakomai and occurred at a depth of 35.0 kilometres (21.7 mi).
A magnitude 4.4 earthquake rattled the volcano's main crater on Wednesday at 8.30am local time (9.30pm GMT), immediately followed by a 3.9 tremor originated in the summit region of Kilauea. In the 11 hours that followed, Hawaii's Big Island was shaken by 27 less intense quakes, raising fears a new eruption was on its way.
PAHOA, Hawaii -- Hawaii's Kilauea volcano sent more lava into Hawaii communities Friday, a day after forcing more than 1,500 people to flee from their mountainside homes, and authorities detected high levels of sulfur gas that could threaten the elderly and people with breathing problems. There were no immediate reports of injuries, but at least two homes were damaged by the eruptions.
Earthquakes rocked Hawaii's Big Island on Friday as eruptions at the Kilauea volcano continued. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said a 6.9-magnitude earthquake struck the island nearly an hour after a 5.4-magnitude quake hit. The 5.4-magnitude quake was felt across the Big Island from Hilo to Kona and as far away as Oahu.
I think all the attention went instead to the unprecedented earthquake and volcanic eruption in Hawaii in May 2018. In fact, I think to some degree this event played out in both Japan and Hawaii, with Hawaii getting the most apocalyptic destruction. I call this phenomenon translocation, something "intended" in the base 7 system for one region hits an adjacent region instead. This "something" can be a war, a quake, an act of terrorism ... anything unusual and huge in scope.
Anyways, between Japan and Hawaii, this is pretty much a PREDICTION FULFILLED ... two months later in Hawaii than the March 2018 projected date and six months later in Japan. For more information on the Hokkaido Earthquake besides the embedded news provided, check out the Wikipedia article embedded as well.
THE KOREAN MISSILE CRISIS: NUCLEAR WAR?
The answer may lie in "what kind of year has 2017 been like?" Has it been like 1961 in any respects? In terms of America and a first term presidency, 2017 could only be like either 1961 or 1989 ... or else throw us way back to 1933. We can certainly dismiss the latter proposition: Donald Trump is no Franklin Delano Roosevelt. And in modern terms he is definitely no George Herbert Walker Bush either. Besides Bush was vice president under Ronald Reagan prior to his election in 1988. Trump never held political office until his election.
Is Donald Trump then like the only other remaining comparison on the base 7 timeline ... John F. Kennedy? Yes and no. Definitely no in terms of popularity at this time. Kennedy was liked by more of the American public in 1961 than Trump has been in 2017. Nor was Kennedy plagued by scandals as Trump has been since the 2016 campaign.
However, Kennedy defeated the favorite, incumbent vice president Richard Nixon, in the close and contentious 1960 election much as Trump defeated former secretary of state Hillary Clinton in 2016. Like Kennedy's call to put a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s, Trump wants a Mars mission in place within the next ten years or sooner. Trump's economic optimism and policies are practically the same as Kennedy's and may result in anywhere from 4% to 6% annual growth. First Lady Melania Trump is possibly the most popular and glamorous First Lady the country has seen since Jacqueline Kennedy.
But while repetitive years can be similar in nature, they are rarely if ever exactly the same. There was nothing similar to "the Bay of Pigs" in 2017.
However, there have been very public, concrete threats uttered by Trump of total annihilation of North Korea if Kim steps way out of line with his ICBM and nuclear testing and brings harm to key allies in the region or appears to be moving in the direction of fulfilling his threats to attack the mainland United States with nuclear warheads if provoked militarily. Trump has been vilified by the news media for making such threats, but his verbosity is technically equal to any an average American might easily make if he or she felt threatened by North Korean nuclear-tipped ICBMs.
Thus, if 2017 has been anything like 1961 due to the intense hatred the US president has against a sworn enemy of the United States, Kim Jong-un, it is not hard to visualize what a 1962-style nuclear crisis would look like. It is obvious that despite Kim's nuclear military capability, he has some years to go before he has the actual ability to destroy a country like the U.S. Fidel Castro had no such capability in 1962 ... until the Soviet Union began sending missiles to Cuba, triggering the Cuban Missile Crisis.
So Kim has them in small numbers; Castro had none of his own. One important difference. The dynamic that should worry us all is what happens if Kim 1) explodes a hydrogen bomb above the Pacific Ocean or 2) takes military action, even on a limited scale, against a US ally and couples such action with threats of using nuclear weapons against Guam, Japan, South Korea, or US naval forces in the Pacific if there is any military response by Donald Trump.
One possible military action would be a naval blockade of North Korea.
It is not Kim we need worry about in this modern-day 'Cuban Missile Crisis in the Pacific' scenario. Rather, it is the huge nuclear power who decides to support Kim if threatened by US military action. The likeliest major nuclear power that would support Kim Jong-un if threatened by US attack is China. Thus, we would have President Xi Jinping in the role of a Chinese version of Nikita Khrushchev. China has the ability to destroy nearly all of the United States.
However, it could be even worse. In addition to China, it may well be the Russian Federation under the rule of Vladimir Putin who repeats history once again. Putin will seek re-election in the March 18, 2018 Russian presidential election and is widely expected to win. Other candidates for 2018 currently are Vladimir Zhirinovsky (who would be even more dangerous than Putin) and Pavel Grudinin. The question then becomes, "will the major nuclear powers back away from the precipice as the US and USSR did in 1962 or will they proceed to carry out the unthinkable: a nuclear world war??"
Because North Korea's conventional capabilities on the battlefield are increasingly obsolete, North Korea relies heavily on their nuclear and conventional missile capabilities to protect the Kim regime. In addition to short- and medium-range missiles that threaten the southern half of the Korean peninsula, North Korea relies on long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles to threaten American allies like Japan, and American assets in the Pacific region-and possibly the continental United States.
North Korea returning to strategy of fanning flames of crisis, Japanese think tank report says | The Japan Times
North Korea has shifted its foreign policy focus back to the strategy of fanning a mood of crisis by resuming missile launches last year, Japan's National Institute for Defense Studies said Friday. Pyongyang ha taken the strategy that depends on a nuclear option as talks with the United States falter, the think tank associated with the Defense Ministry said in its East Asian Strategic Review 2020 report.
North Korea is signaling this will be its busiest year of missile testing yet. In March, the regime conducted nine tests, the most in a single month recorded in our database. Recall that on April 21, 2018, Kim Jong Un declared North Korea would cease intercontinental ballistic missile and nuclear tests in the lead-up to a summit with U.S.
North Korea is vowing Monday to "repay the U.S. with actual horror and unrest" following remarks from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week in which he called on world leaders to keep applying pressure on the Hermit Kingdom's controversial nuclear program.
This story has been updated. SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea warned it has lost interest in nuclear talks with the United States on Monday, a day after the communist state test-fired what it called "super-large" multiple rocket launchers.
North Korea launched two projectiles into the Sea of Japan on Sunday, South Korean military officials said. In a statement to NBC News, South Korea's Joint Chief of Staff called the move "totally inappropriate behavior" at a time when the world was battling a pandemic.
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - North Korea on Sunday fired two suspected ballistic missiles into the sea, South Korea and Japan said, continuing a streak of weapons launches that suggests leader Kim Jong Un is trying to strengthen domestic support amid worries about a possible coronavirus outbreak in the country.
SEOUL (Reuters) - With international focus on the coronavirus, North Korea has doubled down on its missile development and military exercises in recent weeks while signaling new confidence that it has dodged an outbreak of its own.
SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea on Saturday fired two presumed short-range ballistic missiles into the sea, South Korea's military said, as it continues to expand military capabilities amid deadlocked nuclear negotiations with the Trump administration and a crippling global health crisis. South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said the projectiles were fired around 6:45 and 6:50 a.m.
The South Korean military is maintaining readiness, according to a statement by South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff.
North Korea's foreign ministry on Saturday warned of a "grave response" to recent condemnation by a number of European Union states of a missile test by Pyongyang earlier in the week.

North Korea successfully launched two short-range missiles during its military exercises on March 2, 2020, local time. The missiles were fired from a wheeled transporter-erector-launcher (TEL) positioned near the coastal city of Wonsan. The missiles covered a ground distance of roughly 240 km, reached a peak altitude of just 35 km and impacted in the Sea of Japan (East Sea).
Key point: A U.S.-China conflict plays to the strengths both sides have been steadily developing over the past decade One of the most dangerous places in the world is North Korea, and not entirely in the ways one might think.
North Korea expressed its displeasure Wednesday over the stalled nuclear negotiations with the United States, warning of a "bigger threat and harsh suffering" if Washington ignores the end-of-year deadline set by Kim Jong Un. In a statement carried by state media, an unidentified spokesman for the North's State Affairs Commission said the U.S.
Earlier this year, as talks between North Korea and the United States broke down, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un set a deadline-the end of 2019-for getting thing back on track. With that deadline nearing, and with the Trump administration set to continue joint air drills with South Korea, Kim issued a warning.
SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea has a message for President Donald Trump and the United States: The clock is ticking, and a bomb is about to explode. There are seven weeks until North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un is scheduled to deliver a keynote New Year's Day speech.
SEOUL - North Korea has conducted a "strike drill" for multiple launchers, firing tactical guided weapons into the East Sea in a military drill supervised by leader Kim Jong Un on Saturday, the North's state media reported on Sunday.
NORTH Korea has fired several new missiles today as simmering tensions with the West have once again started heating up. The weapons were fired towards the East Sea at around 9am local time just days after Kim Jong-un's regime threatened the US with "undesired consequences".
An emergency alert notification sent out on Saturday claiming a "ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii" was a false alarm, according to state leaders and emergency officials, who blamed it on an employee who "pushed the wrong button."
Another Spectacular Comet In the Heavens
NEW PREDICTION: 9/28/16 (Text added 12/27/17) -- We failed to have a Hyakutake-type comet event in 2017 like we did in 1996, so it is less likely we will have a Hale-Bopp event like we did in 1997. But you never know. In March and April of 1962, a year like 1997 which is also aligned with 2018 using the base 7 system, there was Comet Seki-Lines. It was a very bright comet which peaked in magnitude in April 1962 low in the western evening twilight. Hale-Bopp was also a western twilight comet, but was visible for a much longer period of time than Seki-Lines. Unlike Hale-Bopp, which had a bright comet predecessor a year earlier called Hyakutake, Seki-Lines had none in 1961. In fact the last bright comet before 1962 was Comet Arend-Roland in 1957. So, yes ... a bright comet could emerge out of nowhere in 2018. We'll have to see. Otherwise ... dream on.
Prediction originally posted at my main website on 2018 (Part One).
This weekend will feature an uncommon scene in the night sky as a comet glides past the Earth. Comet 46P/Wirtanen is a small comet that has been growing brighter over the past few weeks, and it is expected to be bright enough to see with the naked eye on Saturday night and Sunday night.
As comets blaze across the night sky, they can bring wonder and excitement to those watching from Earth - or even a sense of impending doom. In the past, people debated what comets even are - an atmospheric phenomenon, a fire in the sky, a star with a broom-like tail?
The Comet 46P/Wirtanen will have a "close" encounter with Earth on Sunday, Dec. 16. As with all objects in space, close is a relative term. Comet 46P/Wirtanen will pass by Earth a mere 7.2 million miles away.
I no longer "keep score" of predictions. I stopped it when I realized this repetitive event phenomenon has a life of its own. We will and do see historical repetitions of various degrees of exactness and magnitude to preceding events. I simply point out what can happen and an idea of when and where to look or who to watch. If it happens noticeably then I'll usually draw attention to it with a "PREDICTION FULFILLED." Yay! Still, this is not real prophecy, only a phenomenon. We do discuss real prophecy on here though too, don't we (usually fairly famous ones)? That's called speculation, and as you now, you can probably throw out the window 95% of most speculation. Still, it is worth the study and the effort. Enjoy the Comet Wirtanen show ... if there really is one!
Heads up: a comet potentially visible to the naked eye is on its way past Earth. Comet 46P/Wirtanen, first discovered in 1948, makes its way around the sun every 5.4 years. For one, 46P/Wirtanen is approaching perihelion, the closest an object is to the sun in its orbit.
Sky watchers have a lot to look forward to in December, as yet another bright comet is due for a close - and perfectly safe - encounter with Earth, reports .
Calling all stargazers and anyone who loves nature - there's a comet that's set to shoot through the sky soon and you won't want to miss it!It's called Comet 46P/Wirtanen and according to Comet Watch, it'll be especially bright from December 12-16, 2018.
PREDICTION FULFILLED ... technically speaking (a faint naked eye comet)

Based on news reports and space articles, it appears this was a pretty good comet to see with the naked eye ... providing you were in a good location weather-wise. So I suppose it was a PREDICTION FULFILLED. But it was impossible for me verify personally. I will likely put up the best photos of the event above these comments when I have the chance.
