Here are mine (TW):

  1. Joe Biden will win the election.
  2. Immediately upon his election or inauguration, the lying media will turn on him, suddenly discovering all the scandals they have been covering up to that point.
  3. If there is any substance to the Burisma/China scandal, he will be toppled.

Why do I think this? Biden was never the favorite of the establishment. Fake News CNN was smearing him in favor of its candidates Kamala Harris and later Elizabeth Warren. I distinctly remember a headline - at an airport - last year, where FNCNN was claiming that "Biden refuses to apologize for segregationist comments".

Right now, they are temporarily allying themselves with Biden go get rid of the Bad Orange Man, and therefore temporarily covering up any scandal.

But like Francis Underwood, Harris will undermine Biden in order to usurp the presidency, and the media will do what they are paid by their billionaire and corporate masters to do.

The lying media will feel empowered by having gotten Trump out of office, that they can also remove Biden in favor of his VP whom they like better. Similarly, the mob will feel empowered as well, so you can expect political violence at regular intervals, which will be branded 'peaceful protests' when they are not being blamed on Wight Supremacists.

These are my honest views, and I'll concede that I also thought that Trump would lose in 2016.

Thoughts, predictions, etc.?

I had total certainty of Trump's victory in 2016, so much so that I bet money on it. I did the same with the Brexit vote. It was a great year for me, indeed.

Were it not for the pandemic, I would have been certain of an even stronger, utterly crushing victory for him this year, but the lockdowns have obliterated the progress he made on employment, and there are millions of people who would have been going into those polls knowing that they were financially better off under Trump than they had been under Obama, who are now going to those polls unemployed.

I think Trump's victory hinges on whether the American public blame him for the extent of the pandemic's economic effects. I, personally, would not, as I don't believe Hillary would have done any better. The American mindset is simply not the sort where people will unquestioningly comply with state orders to wear masks, stay away from their friends and family, etc. It wouldn't have mattered who was in the whitehouse. The same people would have behaved in the same ways.

A few months back I saw reports that a bunch of political simulations at some university saw all of their Biden victory scenarios lead to civil war. I think that's pretty outrageous, but if the results are close enough, and evidence of fraud can be found, then... yeah, I'd say it's on the table.
