Michel de Nostredame. Predictions for 2021

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Michel de Nostredame, (December, 1503 – July, 1566) was a French astrologer, physician and reputed seer, who is best known for his book Les Prophéties, a collection of 942 poetic quatrains allegedly predicting future events. The book was first published in 1555.

Nostradamus was notoriously vague in many of the predictions he made in his 1555 book, Les Prophéties. But even after nearly five centuries, humans still find themselves turning to his writings in times of woe because of what he did get right. It is very important to note that he did get a lot of stuff right.

But, there is bad news for anyone expecting things to settle down a bit in 2021, because according to predictions made by Nostradamus in the 16th century, we’ve got famine, solar storms and zombies to contend with.

The late astrologer, who died all the way back in 1566, has been credited with correctly predicting various world events including the rise of Hitler and the 9/11 terror attacks.

Naturally, with his predictions being written so long ago, they’re incredibly vague, meaning you can twist them to pretty much whatever you fancy, but nonetheless, here’s a little snippet of some of the stuff Nostradamus is believed to have written about the year 2021.

He wrote: “Few young people: half−dead to give a start. Dead through spite, he will cause the others to shine, and in an exalted place some great evils to occur.”

“Sad concepts will come to harm each one, temporal dignified, the mass to succeed. Fathers and mothers dead of infinite sorrows, women in mourning, the pestilent she−monster: The Great One to be no more, all the world to end.”

He also warned that “after great trouble for humanity, a great one is prepared” and has said we’re going to be facing famines.

Nostradamus went onto predict that the human race will need to be protected. Super-soldiers, with some even suggesting he predicted microchips would be implanted in the soldiers’ heads. How someone from the 1500’s could even conceive a microchip is interesting to say the least.

He wrote: “The newly made one will lead the army, almost cut off up to near the bank: Help from the Milanais elite straining, The Duke deprived of his eyes in Milan in an iron cage.”

Alongside the famine and zombies, 2021 will be pretty heavy when it comes to natural disasters, according to Nostradamus.

He believed we’re going to have to contend with harsh storms, an asteroid either hitting Earth or coming pretty close and a major earthquake in the US.

So. 2021 is shaping up to be an interesting year, as if it hasn’t already been.

Isn’t It Amazing. The New Administration

Isn’t it amazing. We have a new presidential administration coming into office in just eight days and the world is already in a collapse.

As has been predicted for the last eight-plus months, if a bumbling senator that has been in politics for 51 years and as a senator for 47 years, is to be elected, the world political stage will become a mess before he is able to step foot into the White House as a president.

Biden was elected a New Castle County Councillor in 1970 and became the sixth-youngest senator in American history when he was elected to the US Senate from Delaware in 1972, at the age of 29. Biden was a longtime member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and eventually became its chairman.

This is perhaps the most controversial aspect of Biden’s career. The Democrat has defended the 1994 Crime Bill, which he largely wrote and saw through the Senate, as lowering violent crime. Critics on both the right and the left see it as one of his biggest weaknesses.

In particular, the bill is accused of leading to mass incarceration, or at the very least exacerbating the trend of mass incarceration, and disproportionately affecting African Americans. Biden has said that some aspects of the bill were a mistake.

In 1974, he told a reporter that “when it comes to issues like abortion … I’m about as liberal as your grandmother. I don’t like the [Roe v. Wade] decision on abortion. I think it went too far. I don’t think that a woman has the sole right to say what should happen to her body.” In 1981, he voted for a constitutional amendment that would let states overturn Roe v. Wade.

Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction.

He is a self-described “gaffe machine” who has falsely said he was shot at in Iraq, that he met survivors of the 2018 Parkland, Florida, school shooting while he was vice president, problem is, the shooting happened after he left office, and that he was arrested while trying to visit Nelson Mandela in apartheid-era South Africa. He later said he was just detained.

In speeches throughout the 1980’s, he repeatedly claimed to have “marched in the civil rights movement,” and cited “Bull Connor and his dogs” as what “galvanized” his political awakening. There is no evidence of Biden joining civil rights marches during this era, though he did take part in a picket outside downtown Wilmington’s segregated Rialto movie theater in the 1960’s.

While Biden has “co-sponsored” plenty of bills and acted as an advocate, the only bill readily available that Mr Biden wrote in his 47 years in office is the 1994 crime bill and even with that, he had help. So what has he done in 47 years?

As for the predictions? Let’s list some of them that have come to fruition, keeping in mind, the best is yet to come and I’m sure will be kept out of the public eye as it would surely put an end to the Democratic party all together.

IMF board, citing increased credit exposure risks, raises reserve target. The fund’s 24 executive directors increased the target to Special Drawing Rights 25 billion, or around $36 billion, from SDR 20 billion, or $29 billion, after a regular biannual review conducted at the end of October, the IMF said in a statement and who do you think they are going to look at for that extra money? The US.

Everyone on the planet should have seen this one coming and if they didn’t, they must have been asleep.

Kim Jong Un Calls U.S. North Korea’s ‘Biggest Enemy,’ Vows To Advance Nuclear Arsenal. “Our external political activities must focus on controlling and subjugating the United States, our archenemy and the biggest stumbling block to the development of our revolution.” What do you suppose will keep Mr Kim quite. Money, of course.

The Democratic party is so out of control, they were not able to wait till Mr Biden steps foot into the White House before resuming their normal tactics.

Freshman House Member Demands Pelosi Explain Why Chinese Government’s Newspaper is Coming to Congressional Offices

“I did not request China Daily, nor did my staff,” Hinson wrote in a letter to Pelosi, noting she had discovered the paper in her office upon arriving in Congress. “I am appalled that this could happen,” Hinson added. “I write to insist you use the control you have as Speaker of the House of Representatives to stop the [Chinese Communist Party] from distributing its state-run publication within our hallowed halls.”

China Daily, a propaganda organ of China’s Communist Party, distributes copies of its English-language version to members of Congress, and periodically draws attention for making wild claims backed by the Chinese government. Those have included its assertion this month that the Chinese “reeducation centers” holding millions of Uighurs have helped women to become more than “baby-making machines,” and its claim last year that AIDS “spread to the world” after it was “first discovered” in the United States.

Hinson noted that the paper is registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, preventing its employees from accessing congressional press galleries. “Yet, their mal-intended work appears on my doorstep, alongside the newspapers of the American free press,” Hinson wrote. “This is a flagrant violation of the taxpayers’ trust. Frankly, I am disgusted.”

And last, but not least, lets do whatever we want…

Liberal law professor warns of the damage Democrats would do to Constitution if they impeach Trump again.

According to the constitutional law professor, Democrats will “gut” the Constitution’s free speech protections and its impeachment standard if they move to impeach Trump over last week’s violence.

“Democrats are pushing this dangerously vague standard while objecting to their own remarks given new meaning from critics. Conservatives have pointed to Maxine Waters asking her supporters to confront Republicans in restaurants, while Ayanna Pressley insisted amidst the violent marches last year that ‘there needs to be unrest in the streets,’ and Kamala Harris said ‘protesters should not let up’ even as some of those marches turned violent,” Turley wrote. “They can legitimately argue their rhetoric was not meant to be a call for violence, but this standard is filled with subjectivity.”

“The damage caused by the rioters this week was enormous, however, it will pale in comparison to the damage from a new precedent of a snap impeachment for speech protected under the First Amendment. It is the very threat that the framers sought to avoid in crafting the impeachment standard,” Turley explained.

The Cancel Culture Revival

Reading Time: 10 minutes

As with a lot of my writings, I have an insatiable inability to keep away from didactically dissecting individual words and their meaning in an effort to bring the point of the writing to fruition.

For this writing, I’m afraid, it will be no different.

Ostracism: Exclusion, by general consent, from social acceptance, privileges, friendship, etc. In ancient Greece: Temporary banishment of a citizen, decided upon by popular vote.

Cancel Culture: Refers to the popular practice of withdrawing support for or canceling a public figure or a company after they have done or said something considered objectionable or offensive.

Shaming: The painful feeling arising from the consciousness of something dishonorable, improper, ridiculous, done by oneself or another. To publicly humiliate or shame for being or doing something specified.

Do you get the feeling that you have heard these words before? Well, that would be because at some point in your life, you have experienced it, whether you know it or not. Need proof? OK. Sure, you bet, I’ve got it right here. You were a child at some point in your life, and you, like 85% of the rest of the population on planet earth went to school at a young age and quickly realized that you did not like school because the other kids made fun of you, as so with the others that you only saw every once in a while. Back then, you would call it “bullying.”

It is one of the earliest and most heartbreaking tactics that children learn. Because social connections are powerful, taking those connections away is a weapon. So kids are left out, not included, not talked to, ignored.

Ostracism from one’s peers may be a passive form of aggression, but it is a painful form all the same. And, like most of the other battles from the playground, it doesn’t end with childhood.

Based on some recent research, it continues into the workplace, and it does so at a level that managers and attorneys may not fully appreciate. The research comes from a survey of 3,400 American workers in a number of different companies.

According to the research, summarized, active bullying is a problem in the workplace, but the greater problem is ostracism. Compared with those who had experienced harassment, those being ignored felt more inclined to quit their job, less connected to their job and had a greater number of health problems.

Now that we have that out of the way, it should be noted that these words are not new by any means, as a matter of fact, they date as far back as time itself.

The overused term “Cancel Culture,” was thrust into the spotlight in 2017 and as you can imagine, the media loves a new buzz word or phrase to run like a freight train, 24/7 into the conscious mind of the population till that population thinks that it’s “right” or “normal,” only to discover later, that what they were pumping out into the airwaves with a flurry of that of a rabid dog, that it had a side effect that they now have to do “damage control” to make it go away. Meaning that they now have to find a new buzz word or phrase to distract the population from the previous damage.

As to be expected, those of the population that scratched their heads in disbelief, and thought to themselves, “You’re kidding. Right?”

Unfortunately, there are a vast number of the population that have forgotten their school years and hopefully, their parents taught them better. Sadly, that does not appear to the case, and hence, the term spread like wild fire to the point that it is now not only a major part of politics in the US and UK, it has expanded to the point of no return. Business owners are now faced with the threat of everyone that walks in the door; thinking to themselves, “Is this going to be one of them?”

With me so far? In the years following 2017, there have been a number – far to many in my opinion – that have been arrested, dragged through the court system for merely expressing their thought. The sad by-product of this action is that the court system is clogged beyond comprehension as it is and now, we have all of these court cases for expressing thought. Does this remind you of George Orwell yet? In the book “1984,” there a few pages that specifically deal with the “children snitching to the authorities their parents thoughts,” so the authorities, with glee, can now punish those who dare to speak what is rightfully a freedom of speech. And who else will be front-and-center to take in the show? The media of course.

In recent months, there have been campaigns by actors Bryan Cranston and none other than Rowan Atkinson to create awareness to not only curb this unhealthy trend, but to get politicians to realize that the laws they are creating are disastrous to the health of the global population.

Bryan Cranston recently stated: “We live in this cancel culture of people erring and doing wrong – either on purpose or by accident – and there’s less forgiveness in our world.” “I think we’re unfortunately in a coarser environment. I think our societies have become harder and less understanding, less tolerant, less forgiving.”

Rowan Atkinson recently stated: “It is scary for anyone who’s a victim of that mob, and it fills me with fear about the future.” “A Medieval mob roaming the streets looking for someone to burn.” “The problem we have online is that an algorithm decides what we want to see, which ends up creating a simplistic, binary view of society.” “It becomes a case of either you’re with us or against us. And if you’re against us, you deserve to be ‘canceled’”

For anyone that is old enough to remember some of the movies that were not only widely excepted, but were blockbusters in the movie theaters, would remember the movie Blazing Saddles or Spaceballs and many other movies that were produced by Mel Brooks. In more recent times, the animated series of Family Guy and American Dad. All of those productions were littered as far as one can see with insults, criticisms, innuendos, you name it, it was there.

The other by-product of this cancel culture is, how is a stand-up comedian, or any number of comedians, whether in person, on-line or in a movie supposed to make you laugh? Any consideration to this?

So what does our future hold? It’s up to the population that is scratching their heads to ask those that have pushed this ideology to far to go back to grade school to remember the lessons learn about bullying.

I’ve included a speech from Rowan Atkinson in the video below as I feel it is worth watching.
