Flop of the Amazing Predictions

The people want amazing predictions and some web sites are happy to oblige. However the amazing predictions usually flop. No matter: Just move on to the next amazing prediction: The people will never notice how the past predictions have flopped.

Case in point: Shemitah cycle. Barely a month ago one web site was still filling my e-mail box with Shemitah warnings. Then, as the moment of truth grew near, the web site’s Shemitah predictions evaporated: It was getting too close to reality. The seven-year Shemitah cycle, predicting financial doomsday or some near equivalent, has yet to manifest. Instead the Dow-Jones average has been blasting upwards like a rocket this past week.

Where are the Cuban troops, Larry Nichols? Around September 1st, only a month ago, Nichols was predicting Cuban military were to be brought to the United States to augment martial law forces. A crackdown on patriotic Americans would begin. (Background: Nichols Tells Chilling Tale, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, September 3, 2015.)

In the flops department I might as well include myself. A movie released in 2012, “Lincoln”, directed by Steven Spielberg, depicted President Abraham Lincoln, in January 1865, aflame with zeal about passage in the House of Representatives of the 13th Amendment. This depiction was contrary to my impression of the 16th U.S. President. I began looking for any evidence that Lincoln had been so passionate about the anti-slavery Amendment.

Carl Sandburg won Pulitzer Prizes for both poetry and history. His massive biography of Abraham Lincoln is considered to be a classic. The one-volume edition from Harcourt (Harvest Books) is apparently condensed, based on one review of same at Amazon.com. Nonetheless it is still fairly detailed. I had been slowly wading through the book, looking for evidence of Lincoln anti-slavery zeal, especially for January 1865. “Let Carl Sandburg be the arbitrator,” I decided.

To my embarrassment I have now come upon, towards the end of the Sandburg biography, a chapter on “‘Forever Free’ – The Thirteenth Amendment.” A memorandum by John G. Nicolay, one of Lincoln’s secretaries, “indicated the desperate tactics being used to gather a few more needed votes.” [1] The Spielberg movie perhaps overdid its portrayal of the “desperate tactics”, nonetheless there is evidence they were used to garner House votes.

According to one contemporary witness, John B. Alley, Lincoln during the January 1865 push for the 13th Amendment stated, “I am President of the United States, clothed with great power. The abolition of slavery by constitutional provision settles the fate, for all coming time, not only of the millions now in bondage, but of unborn millions to come – a measure of such importance that those two votes must be procured. I leave it to you to determine how it shall be done; but remember that I am President of the United States, clothed with immense power, and I expect you to procure those votes.” (Italics in original). [1]

A version of the above words is given by actor Daniel Day-Lewis, portraying Abraham Lincoln in the Spielberg movie. In that, or a related scene, Lincoln slams his hand down on a table in his vehemence. This seemed questionable behavior for the normally easygoing Lincoln. However I have found documentation of the 16th President slamming not just his hand, but his fist, onto a table, furious about speculators on Wall Street. [2] So depiction of Lincoln slamming his hand on a table during Cabinet-level discussion of the 13th Amendment is not as far-fetched as it might seem.

My apologies to Mr. Spielberg and others associated with the 2012 “Lincoln” film for having earlier called it “Revisionist.” [3]

There have been flops all around, myself included. Another of the flops seems to be the fourth tetrad of the Blood Moon, with only the Roman carnival Pope Francis tour apparently coinciding. “The outcome of the end of days could actually be anywhere from September 21 to 28 – with some eyeing a final date of around September 23 or 24,” was one of the predictions. (Background: Ghost Dance of the Blood Moon, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, September 8, 2015.)

Except the Syria situation began to heat up soon after the fourth Blood Moon tetrad. A flood of Syrian and other refugees pouring into Europe coincided with Roman carnival in America and the last of the Blood Moons. That refugee crisis in turn helped prompt Russia into beginning air strikes in Syria – one more “army” thereby having gathered now in the vicinity of an ominous location: Tel Megiddo, a type of archaeological mound known for its historical, geographical, and theological importance, especially under its Greek name Armageddon.
