I've heard it's de-facto impossible for a foreigner to get an employment visa to allow them to work in India.
Great point.

I bet we're one of very few countries in the world where our policies encourage companies to deprive our citizens of jobs.

I don't totally buy into the occult interpretation, I just like this guy's political commentary. I'm a Christian and I'm supposed to disregard the occult. Supposed to.

I've read about the stuff you cite about the link of the Trumps to Nicola Tesla.

Today scientists use terms like quantum entanglement to explain coincidences and what is alleged occultic events, and supposedly Chinese scientists have recently figured out how to achieve instantaneous long range communication with quantum entanglement.

Touch the TV series is on Netflix. I always want to smack that little bastard kid who keeps running off and predicting numerical coincidences.

The Styxenhammer guy's basic view on this seems to be that reality is nowhere as mundane as most people think regardless of causes. I agree with that wholeheartedly.


Interesting. I am watching the first episode. A bit like "The Knowing", which was a very cool flick.

Oh shyte. I misread the labels. I initially read 4,18,533  as 4,18x,533  thinking it ended up being 29K/year - I knew something was wrong, while of course it's more like 3K/year.

They do not deal in thousands like in US, but in a different denomination which explains the way it's spelled out.

Oh what a glorious shythole.

I watched it per your recommendation. He discusses the Barron Trump book which he says he didn't read but just skimmed through. The review was kind of rambling. He says synchronicities are important to pay attention to in Occultism, and notes Barron Trump's adventures clearly deals with occult themes (I'd use the term supernatural but they're synonyms in a way) He says this was normal for children's literature of the era. He says the author could not possibly have known what was coming (I take it he's saying the author was not a soothsayer and was not intending to make a prediction of the future in this book), and it's interesting that it has so many parallels to today. He notes that 19th century books of this nature, fantastic voyages to Oz or the bottom of the sea, or the center of the earth, influenced occultism in the arts, movies and literature in the subsequent century. He mostly seems to be framing the context for this genre of literature as it pertains to his own beliefs. I didn't find the review particularly interesting as there wasn't anything new.

In the video notes he says he'll deal with the "Last President" book in another video.

Myself I'd say this is possibly prophetic, though I agree the author would not have known he was making a prophecy. I'd say the prophecy has more hits, more things it seems to be foretelling, then most alleged biblical prophesies that were thought to come true, sometimes more than 1000 years after they were foretold. I think a lot of those Biblical one's like the supposed Messianic prophesies are incredibly vague and the details don't really match the reality. There's also the issue where they actually change the translation to try to make it fit better, such as retranslating Isaiah 7:14 so "young woman" is now "virgin" and Emmanuel is somehow a nickname for Jesus, while also ignoring all the rest of the prophecy that doesn't match.

At least with this one they got the name right.

Also, it's a established historical fact that Donald Trump's uncle was a renowned and brilliant scientist who was the one that went in with the FBI to Nikolai Tesla's apartment after he died, and confiscated all of Tesla's secret papers and notebooks detailing things like unlimited energy, wireless energy transmission, plans for a death ray, and some say, notes on how to achieve Time Travel.

So the argument that Barron Trump's Fantastic Journey will involve going back in time to warn people about the dangers to come, perhaps after a global apocalypse caused by Hillary and Soros, is not unreasonable at all.

I don't really like these "satanic" guys. I've not seen the insights in this guys talks that you have, but I've only watched a couple of them because of your recommendations.

There's real satanists out there like Soros and Hillary and I consider them quite dangerous. Along with Podesta, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga's 666 blood eating demonic dinner girlfriend. This vlogger calls himself 666, I'm not a fan of that.

Anyway in summary, I think there's more parallels with this book than a lot of other prophecy claims, so there's a reasonable argument it's prophetic, along with the Shadilay stuff. However, I've seen different Shadilay covers and I'm wondering if the one we usually see isn't partially photoshopped.

As a novelty though it's worth looking at just because the Oz and Jules Verne and Gulliver's Travel genre is kind of interesting.

The time travel angle is also in this very specific case not a crackpot theory due to the true life insanity of the secret Tesla papers likely being held by the Trump family.

About the Baron Trump fantasy novel:

I like this guy's commentaries. He is an occult commentator as well as a political pundit. He makes this novel's recent re-discovery sound magical. Like uncovering the Shadilay recording.

I've heard it's de-facto impossible for a foreigner to get an employment visa to allow them to work in India. The only way it is allowed is if they are a manager at IBM and IBM is establishing an office there to hire Indians. Then one manager will be allowed. But if you are the actual tech guy you'll never get a visa to work at a firm based in India under any circumstances.

The way the US allows immigration is not the way most of the rest of the world does it. Out of 200+ countries in the world, in at least 175 of them they will never let a foreigner come in and take a job there, other than certain extremely narrow niches, like teaching english, or managing at a US company that is outsourcing to that country.

Are you ready to work in IT in India?

Here's a web page for one Bangalore company that used to be all U.S. jobs. -- www.indeed.co.in/cmp/Allstate-Solutions-Private-Limited/salaries

If my currency conversions are correct, the listed salaries range from roughly $2,000 to $8,000 US dollars.

Here's thoughtful article entitled  WILL US TECH JOBS TURN ALL-INDIAN  --
http://organizationsandsocialchange.wordpress.com/2016/02/29/will-u-s-tech-jobs-turn-all-indian-the-h1b-visa-dilemma/comment-page-2/#comment-4198

And an article from 5 years ago that confirms that U.S. IT employment is shrinking due to offshoring --

I read the first two pages which describe the election of a new president Bryan which is greeted by horror and dread by many, followed by attacks by "Anarchists and Socialists" which we know today as Antifa.

That was enough of a parallel. I then made the unsubstantiated claim the whole book was about that, assuming no one would make it past the first two pages. Hey maybe it is. Especially with the title being it's the "last president" suggesting the Antifa plots worked. On the other hand maybe it is about something else that wouldn't be so dramatic. That would ruin my next claim about Baron becoming a Time Traveler and traveling to the past, becoming a lawyer in New York, and writing these books warning us of what was to come.

But then you kids came along and ruined my plans. You and that stupid dog!

Actually, skimming along a bit, the Bryan president seems to be aligned with the anarchists and socialists, they are excited about his election and are looting the homes of the rich. The socialist president abolishes the federal gold reserve by executive order and seems to be at war with Wall Street. It then fast forwards a year and claims that things are much better for the people. He identifies as a populist president (Jackson and Trump both claimed to be this). But then things seem to be going bad after that, manufacturing down, mobs everywhere, have to increase taxes on the wealthy. I assume the author is against the socialist president and it's all going to go bad in the end. guess I'll keep skimming along...

Really though the whole thing here is this guy had a whole series of books about the adventures of Baron Trump, that's the interesting bit, this president thing is something of a distraction, but I think we can force some parallels and a time travel narrative on this if we keep at it.
