About 136 years after the eruption of Krakatau, 2019 may witness the birth of Cucu Krakatau (Grandchild of Krakatau).

Happy Birthday, Cucu Krakatau !

P.S. I have to assure Peter Navarro that Cucu Krakatau will steal neither his future nor his master Donald Trump's future.

However, Cucu Krakatau will definitely steal all the loud bangs, bangs, bangs.... from Donald Trump. :)

Ok , my first 15 predictions.

  1. The US will grant Mexico a “favored nation status” for legal immigration
  2. Justin Trudeau will step down due to a scandal
  3. A third party will emerge that will be attractive to the right and the left, making a serious contention for 2020 likely.
  4. Elon Musk will announce the invention of a new hydro-cell engine to be used on future Teslas
  5. It will be found that China has been eugenically cloning humans for years
  6. Apple will recall an iphone due to Chinese spying malware
  7. North Korea and US will finalize de-nuke agreement and several US companies will begin doing business there
  8. Trump will announce he is not running in 2020
  9. Celebs that will die: Keith Richards, Kanye West, Billy Idol, Michael Douglas, Clint Eastwood, Meryl Streep, Barbara Streisand and Jane Fonda
  10. There will be a nuclear powerplant meltdown somewhere
  11. An “alien discovery” will be made in the melting polar icecaps.
  12. Terror attacks will increase in France, leading to a paradigm shift wherein the populace begins to demand the deportation of Islamic hate zombies. The government will comply.
  13. Julian Assange will take asylum in another country
  14. Bill Clinton will reveal he has AIDs but will say it was due to a blood transfusion
  15. Continued cable cutting will have CBS, ABC and NBC merging to stay afloat.
(a) I disagree with your 1st prediction because Trump is a "black hole" worse than Shylock. He will never grant the MFN status to any country for whatever reason.

(b) Commenting on your 2nd prediction, I wonder why Trudeau will have to step down just for one single scandal, while Trump can be tucked up safely in the White House with so many alleged scandals.

(c) With regard to your 5th prediction, Trump and his team might have been facing one of them across the dinner table at Buenos Aires on December 1 this year.

(d) Regarding your 6th prediction, I advise you not to recall your Apple but eat it.

(e) I disagree with your 7th prediction. In my opinion, North Korea's nuclear programme is as indestructible as the koramon’s egg, as “predicted” in one of my episodes of "The Old Man of the Mountain".

(f) Regarding your 9th prediction, if each of those celebs won't bang his/her shoe on the desk like the late Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, shouting "Touch wood!", he/she will have to prepare a will and a coffin for his/her departure to heaven or hell next year.

(g) Commenting on your 10th prediction, Trump and his followers will be praying hard day and night that it won’t occur in the US.

(h) With regard to your 13th prediction, what country can be safer than North Korea for Julian Assange?

(i) Unfortunately, to be a real psychic, you need to get more than a flash that something might happen in the future. You have to make yourself as blind as a bat to get more accurate predictions. That's the awful reality you have to face without your eyes! You will find out the reason after you finish reading the rest of my comments.

To find out why I agree with your 8th prediction, you must read the "all gloomy 2019 predictions by the "Nostradamus of the Balkans":

"Baba Vanga, born Vangelia Gushterova, passed away in 1996 aged 85 but had already developed a noted reputation in her home country of Bulgaria by the time of her death.

The clairvoyant was partially sighted after a freak accident when she was 12.

She reportedly made hundreds of predictions in her 50-year career, many of which were never written down.

She shot to prominence worldwide after accurately predicting the sinking of the Kursk in 2000.

Among her many gloomy predictions for 2019, she predicted that 'Donald Trump will fall ill with a mystery illness, leaving him deaf and suffering from brain trauma.'"

Thank you for your thoughtful analysis on my predictions. However, don't stop there. please jump into the pool yourself and make some predictions of your own.
Have no fear, it is ok if they turn out to be completely off. Yes I will poke some fun in late December if they are all wrong, but it is all in sport.

By the by, I was the first person to post about the wonders of this Baba lady.

First I have to stress that I won't steal your credit of being "the first person to post about the wonders of this Baba lady".

I had used an anecdote of my political satire "The Old Man of the Mountain" to "predict" that North Korea's nuclear programme is as indestructible as the koramon's egg. I have labelled the Trump-Kim summit as the "Joke of the Century". In my opinion, a similar fate will await the next Trump-Kim summit in 2019.

Despite Trump's latest claim of "big progress" in trade deal after his ”long and very good call with President Xi of China”, I “predict” the Huawei CFO will be jailed in the US in 2019.

Only after seeing the jailing of Meng Wanzhou can the Chinese authorities finally awake to the reality of Trump's Jekyll-Hyde personality and his resolve to wreck the Chinese economy.

Regarding your comment about the "wonders of this Baba lady", you seem to have very high praise of her predictions. Do you believe her gloomy predictions for 2019, particularly those about Trump, will come true?

I also wish to see your comments on American democracy in the thread below:

As I have said earlier, denuclearising North Korea is as difficult, if not impossible, as destroying the koramon's egg in my political satire "The Old Man of the Mountain". Hence I "guess intelligently" that the next Trump-Kim summit will end up, like the first, as a great joke of the century.

I also make an "intelligent guess" that the US-Sino trade war will escalate after the so-called 90-day truce which is a ruse by Donald Trump to let US farmers get a little breather. If he finds that the odds are stacked in his favour, he may even seek to exterminate the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) "peacefully" once and for all like the peaceful disintegration of the Soviet Union.

The temptation for narcissistic Trump to raise the stakes is very great because success in "peacefully" exterminating the CCP will not only guarantee his bid for a second term but also leave a lasting legacy for him in history.

That would be more lasting than the Great Wall of America ! :)

Fortunately, the impossibility of denuclearising (sic) NK is a fictitious as your egg. :cool:

So you have added 2 predictions. Thank you for playing.


In #1 , you're prediction is that the Trump-Kim summit will be a great joke like the first. One problem...how do you measure a joke. It is too ambiguous and not tied to anything tangible.
Is it a joke if CNN says so? Again not a good prediction because it has no empirical handles to say whether indeed it turned out to be a joke or not.

A better prediction would be to say that Anderson Cooper will on the air call the summit a joke. There is some measurable thing to determine if it comes true or not. Your prediction as is stands it left up to the observer's opinion.

In #2 you have stated that the US-SIno trade war will escalate? how will you measure this? Will china stop buying our cars? Will we stop buying their poison dog food? What determines if it has escalated? Again you might point to one marker and say "look I was right it escalated", while I may point to another marker and say..."no . see you did not". Specifics matter.

So please continue to play and do not take offense to my critiques. Just read it over your predictions and see if you can revamp them to make them more tangible and specific.

I look forward to reading your improved work.

Thank you, my most respected mentor and confidant,

1. For all the hullabaloo in #1, each side will walk away after the summit without getting what they wish for. US sanctions on North Korea will stay. South Korean President Moon will be greatly disappointed, but he won’t give up his “Sunshine”, or rather” Moonshine Policy” with the North.

How do I measure a joke? To put it simply, it's "much ado about nothing".

After all the media fuss, aren't the two summits jokes of the century?

2. In #2, the following can happen as Trump and company resolve to wreck the Chinese economy with the ultimate aim and hidden agenda to repeat the "Soviet collapse" on the Chinese Communist Party:

(a) The Huawei CFO will be sentenced to jail, if not death.

(b) More tariffs will be imposed by Trump on more Chinese goods.

(c) The US will threaten more countries with sanctions and tariffs to ban Huawei.

3. Playing? You are kidding. I never take my "educated guess" as playing. For those who are good in imagination, they can imagine what the US hidden agenda is like:

It's an image of a bread knife with the words “Donald Trump and Peter Navarro” plunging into a map of China and animated blood runs out, trickling into the title: “Death by America.”

If there is any artist, cartoonist or animation expert around in the forum, I welcome him to create an image or GIF from the above description. Maybe Ralph can do it. :)

North Korea and Kim Jung Un are in a difficult position. There is no real positive solution to the situation. They feel they need nuclear weapons to be taken seriously in the world. They have the 4th largest arming in the world. If word was to get to the North Korean people, as a whole what life is like in South Korea, and the rest of the world, Kim Jung Un and his government would fall.
