My Next Unequivocal Prediction

Posted on December 17, 2016 by Robert Ringer Comments (49)

I rarely make predictions, because life has a way of coming up with surprises that can change the landscape in a hurry. As you know, however, one prediction that I felt completely comfortable making several years ago was that Hillary Clinton would never become president of the United States.

To me, it was a no–brainer, but many of my readers assured me that my prediction would be wrong. And, to be honest about it, I was surprised and disappointed that she came as close to winning as she did. But she did lose.

I believe the reason a majority of people thought the Face of Evil would win the recent election even though she was probably the most undesirable presidential candidate in at least the past seventy-five years is that they made the mistake of ascribing an almost mystical power to the combination of the Clinton and Obama machines, a power that seemingly made the Clintons unstoppable.

Lying, cheating, mudslinging, making it possible for millions of illegals to vote, stuffing ballot boxes with the names of dead people, avoiding any interview that had the potential to be more threatening than a girlie chat with Ellen DeGeneres, and, if necessary, finding ways to exterminate the opposition is what the Radical Left means by its underlying philosophy, “By any means necessary.”

But, alas, the Clintons proved to be human (well, sort of), and Hillary was so hated by the general public that not even all the cheating and dirty tricks the Radical Left used to try to stymy the voting public were enough to overcome the deep-rooted contempt that millions of fly-over Americans had for her. I think that little neon sign on her forehead that said “Lock me up” was simply more than she could overcome.

Now, at long last — and assuming the state electors don’t defy the will of the people on December 19 — the Beast of Chappaqua will be relegated to stirring the kettle of witches’ brew she keeps in her basement (located just to the right of her server) and cackling her way into oblivion while Bubba ends his years cataloging his selfie porn collection.

Which brings me to my next 100% guaranteed prediction: Members of the Radical Left (as well as a significant percentage of what little is left of the so-called moderate left) will never, ever:

  1. Self-reflect not only on why they were humiliated in the recent election, but why they repeatedly fail at their endless nefarious activities — e.g., people control masquerading as healthcare, the well-orchestrated politics of division, redistribution of wealth, and, of course, endless lying.
  2. Stop hate-mongering, name-calling, lying, cheating, and blaming their opponents and others for their failures.
  3. Let go of their hodge-podge of ugly, pain-causing, insane beliefs in socialism, institutionalized racism, manmade global warming, the urgency to address “LGBT” issues, and the pressing need to prevent as much oil drilling, fracking, and coal mining as possible, among other things.

Given all this, it’s both humorous, sick, and sad at the same time that TV pundits are now debating the big question: Will the Radical Left finally realize it has a problem and change both its strategy and its messaging? The answer is: absolutely not — 100% guaranteed. The troglodytes of the Radical Left not only are mentally ill, a majority of them are fundamentally rotten to the core and motivated by truly bad intentions.

Members of the Radical Left comprise an army of Lucifers who want elections overturned. They want the electoral college thrown out (unless they need it to win an election). They extol the virtues of employing violence to disrupt little things like the presidential inaugurations of their enemies (the latter known as “opponents” by normal people). They concoct wild tales about voter fraud (which they themselves are guilty of), and, above all, they are determined to silence any and all opposition to their crazy, malevolent, anti-freedom agenda.

Thus, it should have come as no surprise to anyone that seventy-six year Nancy Pelosi not only refused to be gracious, step down from her throne, and turn the reins of power over to a younger member of the Democratic Party who might be in a position to bring some badly needed new ideas to the Dirty Dems. In fact, she put an exclamation point on her determination to cling to power by saying, “I don’t think that people want a new direction.” To which I say, “Great! Please don’t change your direction!

The media’s obsession with asking if the Democratic Party is going to do some serious soul searching and change its messaging underscores yet again that they really don’t understand the determination of the Radical Left to force people to adopt its agenda. Most on the Radical Left are true believers who take seriously the illustrious Mr. Alinsky’s message to never back down, no matter how badly you appear to be defeated. If you’re caught red-handed lying, stealing, or cheating, don’t be embarrassed, don’t apologize, and don’t stop. On the contrary, push back harder!

Thus, the more defeats the Dirty Dems sustain, the more times they are caught colluding with their media propaganda arm to take down their enemies, the more times they are caught lying and committing crimes, the harder you can expect them to push toward the edge of the cliff. I tell you, these muttonheads are true warriors! Stupid, evil, suicidal warriors … but warriors nevertheless.

P.S. You may have been impressed with Obama’s stuttering and stammering through his final press conference Friday, sounding for all the world like a reasonable guy who wanted to bring Americans together (the same Americans he has worked so hard to drive apart the past eight years). Even I admit it was a convincing act — but I wasn’t fooled for a second. Throughout it, I kept saying to myself, “This guy is a world-class liar. He doesn’t mean a word he’s saying.”

Once DT is ensconced in the Oval Office, you will see the true Obama emerge, and the true Obama is much worse than the one you’ve watched try to destroy America over the past eight years. So, I urge you not to be fooled about what’s coming. The Dirty Dems are gearing up to do more of the same — only uglier, more frequently, more outrageous, and more destructive. And that, dear reader, is an unequivocal prediction.

    You are absolutely right about Obama sticking around to stir the pot. I am thinking he will be like Reverend Al, but because the Media and the people still afflicted with White Guilt will give him credibility, that makes him very dangerous.

    • Chandler says:

      Thank You Robert,
      I have been saying this about the crooked Democrats for more years than I can admit to.

      Pablo you are right as rain, we should never bee fooled by the Democraps Party of Socialist, Progressives,and full blown Communist. as they are and have been for such a long long time.
      The Democrat party is not nor has been the Party of your Great Grandfather, Grandfather or Father in a long time now.
      We truly live in a dangerous time back by and caused by the Demorat Party of Communist,Socialist and Progressives.
      I only hope we can turn this country around as if we don't we will become a communist Country.

  2. Richard Van Der says:

    I believe that DT truly believes in his stated Ideas and Ideal, but that he also understands "human nature" and the diversity contained within it. That will likely be his challenge, to outsmart the neggies he knows he will be up against. No wonder he is searching for honest, intelligent, practical help in those he selects for the various appointments. (One item based one what I see on FOX NEWS, RE the Sec of State: I would like to see John Bolton selected as "the one", not only the back-up. But, if Congress does not allow the OIl Man, then I hope Bolton IS the one selected.) RE the above essay, I agree with Mr. Ringer totally! The Leper Left is what it is and will not, cannot change for the better. Except for maybe the One in a Thousand who somehow grows Right.Excellent essay! Great thinking in my opinion.

  3. Wayne says:

    Robert,
    I know both you and I wish your prediction was wrong, but unfortunately it's not. The Democrat party doesn't even seem to try and hide the fact that they have become the new socialist/communist party of America. They are truly a vile bunch for any freedom loving citizen.

  4. noah300g says:

    Trump needs to do what Bill Clinton did and fire all the judges under his control and reappoint, but will he have the guts to do so, and would he have the judgement to select true constitutional believers to replace them?
    He may make the same mistake Bush 41 made in leaving all the Obama appointees in power in lower level positions that will throw wrenches into all of his plans.

    • Chandler says:

      I like that Idea,
      No Barack Hussein Obama's appointees should be left standing, Courts or any other position.
      If Trump is smart and I think he is, he might want to replace as you said ALL JUDGES that he can first off.

    • Colinsky says:

      Bill Clinton fired and replaced all 93 Federal attorneys in his first days in office. Not judges.

  5. larajf says:

    You missed one other part of the playbook…..they are never to blame….They are always looking for some other reason. They could never accept responsibility for losing let alone trying to live a good life. I'll be glad when they implode and go the way of the Whig party.

  7. Mike Combe says:

    I agree with you. The problem I see in the future is the voting numbers of Team Informed vs Team Stupid (the low information voter). It is unnerving that 46 million people voted for HRC. I fear it's a matter of time before THEY outnumber US. Intellectual discussions only work on informed voters. Sound bites and catchy slogans are the core of the stupid voter. God help us when they multiply and outnumber us.

    • Dick Caruthers says:

      Mike. I have said for years that those people will
      Breed enough to finally do a number on
      Us I thought it would happen this time around
      but it will eventually happen. Line them up
      on the WALL but it will take a very long wall!!

    • Rosedala says:

      They already have super multiplied themselves (and not by the marriage institution either!) passing on all those drug-filled, retarded brains, drug consuming so popular in 1960 and on. They of that era are the ones who'd rather make love than work (not war as they'd have us believe). And they were ALL demotards! Unfortunately it wasn't just a passing moment but it continued increasingly, taking different de-forms up to the era of obama and his gangsters!!! Sigh….

    • Jean says:

      That was one of the intentions of the Great Society. Imagine any other area in which those who were least capable of functioning were paid to reproduce. And yes, that is exactly what subsidizing food, housing and medical care does for what is now the permanent underclass. I'd rather see welfare dollars spent to encourage abortion and long-term birth control.

    • Jim Hallett says:

      In addition to Team Informed losing ground to Team Stupid (and it accelerates with the libtard media and forced schooling establishment deceivers) is that NON-citizens (and dead people with huge voter fraud issues in big cities like what was revealed in DET during the Michigan recount) are added to the Team Stupid coffers, so 2016 may indeed be the last chance to stem the tide. When you realize the number of govt. handout recipients increases hugely each year, those folks for the most part are never going to vote against bigger and more govt., so the die has been cast.

  8. TN Ray says:

    Yes, Obama is a world class liar likely to do more harm (or, attempt to) out of office, than when he was in. Likely more disruptive than Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan combined, considering his ability to mask his true intentions. The Dems thrive on civil unrest bordering on anarchy. They preach victimhood to gain power for themselves, and justify all manner of violence. Then, like Obama feign piety and call for civil discourse from their opposition, claiming the moral high road. When the NY Times "rededicated" to "honest journalism" after the election I literally laughed out loud. Now, what I am seeing from the MSM is pure bs. No grace period. No honeymoon for Trump. No appreciation of his outstanding cabinet picks. No respect for Trump's "deplorable" electorate, etc. I can only hope the R's in congress will support Trump and help push his agenda. It's certain that the D's will work against his every idea, and it would only take a few RINO's like McCain and Grahm to derail the Trump train.

    • Rosedala says:

      Oh TN Ray, knowing those demotards as i do, I'm afraid as i've never been afraid in my entire loooong life!!! Because the dems are such savage brutes I expect from them JUST ABOUT ANY AND EVERYTHING, INCLUDING RAPING, KIDNAPPING, MURDERING, FORGERIES, MORE…..and all interspersed by their vicious lies and slanders against our President Donald Trump!!! His job as it is, is extraordinarily difficult thanks to obama and his gangsters that made a mess of America, that on top of all of this to have to struggle against the insane attacks of the female loser, her master obama and puppet master soros…..I'm afraid it may cause our President Trump more than just headaches…I'm also more afraid of those traitor repubs. i wish president Trump could fire them all!!! :o(

  9. Mike says:

    During his press conference yesterday, Obama said Hilary wasn't treated fairly by the press. Oh, boy! How can a person say that with a striaght face.

  10. Jim D says:

    Robert,
    I agree w your prediction that the Left will never self-reflect, reassess, and change. You could tell that from election night, when all the surprised TV pundits focused on how all those voters were wrong (or stupid or racist, etc.), rather than how WE (the pundits & the Left) were wrong and out of touch.

    And like you, I also hope that they never do reflect and alter course. The First Rule of Holes.

  11. AZ Suz says:

    Hooray Robert, you hit it right on the head. I have always felt that way about the Liberals…totally dishonest. The Democrats (not Democratics) today are not the Democrats of the Truman era…far from it. They need to get out their history books.
    GO DONALD! Suzy

    • Rosedala says:

      Exactly! I was a democrat and a liberal from birth (100 yrs ago!) but when I saw to what it had morphed… I changed in horror into Independent but with conservative tendencies. Democracy I understood it in past eras as compassionate, fair within reasons, eclectic, true interest and pride in doing things right, discretion, moderation, etc. So I no longer could tolerate, let alone accept, the monster to which it changed and continues to grow, it seems, indefinitely!

    To me the WASP vote finally was consolidated. If we can get our brothers to disclaim the unions, we will never see another Clinton dynasty.

  13. Gary Waltrip says:

    Piercingly accurate assessment, Robert. The Dirty Dems are evil, anti-American and totally destructive of anything that promotes prosperity and liberty.

  14. Richard Head says:

    Robert:

    Thank you for sharing your consciousness.

    I simply wish your bold, and, as in this case, brazen ( :-) ), commentary was supported by the actual voting that took place. Is it not a fact that we will never know who really won the POTUS election on a majority-vote basis? Of all things I would like to see, instant-runoff voting is one of them. If instant-runoff voting had taken place in each state, the popular vote would have been different, as might have the the electoral vote. Would it not have been nice to know that, whoever won the election, a majority of citizens wanted him or her to be president, if not their first choice for president? And then your bold and brazen commentary would have a factual foundation.

    Thank you again for sharing your consciousness Robert. While you might not always be enlightening, you are always entertaining sir.

    Best,

    Richard "D.I.C.K." Head

    @Politicalfolks and http://www.donaldfuckhead.com

    P.S. Might you some day take the time to enlighten the masses about the American Capitalist Party, http://www.theamericancapitalistparty.com/, so that The FOLKS can get back on the track to liberty–the liberty you so eloquently articulated in "Restoring the American Dream"?

    • theczech says:

      There is absolutely no provision in the U.S. Constitution whereby the people directly elect a president, none. We never have voted for president of the United States. Further, the word "democracy" is never used in any of our official founding documents. The founders simply rejected the idea of a democratic system for America. At one time we didn't elect senators either – the state legislatures did. The only federal office directly chosen by the people is congressman aka representative.

      • Richard Head says:

        Totally agree with you TheCzech; however, in practice, POTUS is the result of an indirect, democratic process–the one that caused Robert to write what he has written today. (Perhaps you should be chastising Robert for writing "assuming the electors do not defy the will of the people" :-) ) My point is simply that if there are votes to be counted anywhere (popular, Electoral College, etc.), the outcome of a vote should be a majority, not a plurality. Although it does take a majority of electoral votes to win POTUS, the electors from each state can get to the EC on a plurality of votes.

        Thank you for sharing your consciousness TheCzech.

        Sincerely,

        D.I.C.K. (The Half-Slovak btw :-) )

  15. Scott McKinney says:

    Great to learn more about these people – most of my encounters with the Radical Left have been with classmates, professors and education administrators – some were at least reasonable and fair in engaging in rational discussion (though apparently being closed to facts), Others were brainwashed but perhaps naive. Quite a few were despicable creatures (engaged in criminal apologetics/rewarding violence/punishing dissent/corruption). Glad other people recognize their true colors, glad to see the backlash, and after reading what Mr. Ringer wrote over the past few months am glad to have a better understanding of how they operate.

  16. theczech says:

    I can't disagree with you Robert. The lack of self-reflection is a malady that strikes many Americans these days. So it is little wonder that the unwillingness to critique themselves is chronic and terminal among these leftists. Moreover, we must not forget that one of the primary tenants of Marxism is; " the ends justify the means."

  17. Harry says:

    "….a majority of them are fundamentally rotten to the core and motivated by truly bad intentions." Excellent. This cannot be stated often enough or forcefully enough. Pure evil they are. No compromise; no quarter. I think DT knows this. I pray he does. Most of the "leaders" on our side are all for caving and fawning. No more!

  18. Jurgy says:

    Great article Robert – thanks. I watched omaba's pressy, and he almost fooled me, especially the bit about the ruskies messing with the election. Then I recalled the lies about the Benghazi murders being caused by a stupid video, and also how the dnc plotted to get Bernie out of nana cankles' way, and realized that he was nothing more than being a really good liar – again. Then today I heard Assange tell Hannity in no uncertain terms that his source of the leaks that helped bring down nana was not the ruskies, as omaba had asserted – that confirmed for me exactly who omaba is. I only hope and pray that Trump will turn this nation around, and make the likes of Rachel MadCow and all the alt-Left "news" websites shut the eff up and eat crow.

    And hence the reason why you can't save America.

  20. Lana says:

    Thanks for his column. I find that you have the finger on the pulse of intelligent Americans. Please be aware of BHO and his agenda. Remember Grover Cleveland, after he was president, out of office, then ran again and won. Maybe we could find a distance country for him to rule that would satisfy his ego and need to control. Or, maybe he could be offered Ambassadorship to his home country. Whatever would remove him from America, for which he clearly has no respect.

  21. Sean Baltz says:

    Great writing Mr Ringer, as always. There will be more chaos during the time Trump is in office than during the liberal hippie rebellion of the 1960's. It will make that insane social rebellion look like a Sunday school picnic compared to what will transpire in the next few years. No question about it.

  22. Reality Seeker says:

    Good article and good comments.

    Speaking of Saul, I'll post a few of his tactics that Obama and his dirty people use each and every day. Unfortunately, most "fly-overs" don't fully understand what they are up against and why people like myself firmly believe that one day it shall all come down to the Second Amendment.

    Tactics of the Left: Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals

    Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.

    Never go outside the experience of your people.

    Whenever possible, go outside the experience of the enemy.

    Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.

    Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.

    A good tactic is one your people enjoy.

    A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag.

    Use different tactics and actions and use all events of the period.

    The threat is more terrifying than the thing itself.

    Maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

    If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.

    The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

    Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it.

    How To Create A Socialist State. ~~ by Saul Alinsky

    1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people

    2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

    3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

    4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

    5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).

    6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.

    7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

    8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

  26. Rocketman says:

    The day before yesterday Sheriff Arpieo gave his final briefing on the Trump birth certificate and the conclusion is that the BC is a phony. And now several republican legislators are calling for a hearing on the issue. What does it mean if Obama isn't an American citizen? No one knows because it's unknown territory. There clearly needs to be SOME KIND OF PUNISHMENT but does that mean that Obama needs some jail time for this? Does it mean that everything that Obama did in the last 8 years including supreme court appointments in invalid? We are looking at a constitutional crisis and the only way that I see of resolving this short of a bloody civil war is to let several states leave the union and take the bunch of nutcases with them that support Hillary and Obama no matter how evil or how corrupt that they really are.

  27. Rocketman says:

    I said the "Trump" birth certificate but I meant "Obama"

  28. Rick G says:

    I just sit here trying to come up with an addendum to this article, but just can't. Robert Ringer has it all summed up about the Radic-Lib Left. It was almost as if I had written the article myself! What more is left to say?

    The New Left needs to give it up! Trump won! It's over! Let it go! Get over it! So deal with it! Go to your "Cry Room" if you have to and cry it all out. Since when do all presidential elections now have to go your way!? Since when? I put up with 8 agonizing years of your ridiculous Hussein Obama, so it's your turn. Deal with Trump! Trump, Trump, Trump!

    There is another nightmare looming on the horizon beside Crooked Hillary, The Wicked Witch of the Blue Left. Yep, none other than Elizabeth Warren, or better known by The Donald as "Pocahontas". She looks like the "Wildcat from Blue Hell". As long as there are creatures like her running loose, there will always be bachelors and divorces. When the Radic-Libs designed, engineered, built, and programmed this monster, I suddenly.realized they really mean all out WAR!!!

  29. Figmo says:

    Corrupt Hillary lost but she is not giving up. The plan now seems to be to blow the Russian hacking (be it true or fiction) all out of proportion and to somehow link it to Trump. This will give the electoral college delegates who hate Trump an excuse to betray their mandate from the voters and vote for Hillary. They are supposed to be required to vote as directed by the voters on the first ballot. If there is more than one ballot, many will change their votes to Hillary or congress will get to decide the election. What is being so conveniently ignored by the MSM as it beats the drums chanting "the russians favored Trump" is the terrible damage done to America by that dumb bitch with her unsecured and compromised server.

  30. Bob Diamond says:

    Great insightful article as always. This reminds me of something I read recently that for the "true believer" democrats their cause is their religion, which is why they cannot tolerate challenges to their fundamental beliefs – the glorification of the "crowd" over the individual, large powerful government in charge, individuals herded and controlled etc. That is why they cannot tolerate opposing arguments such as challenges to their belief in global warming and anything else they are pushing. It also explains why their high priest, Obama derided non democrats as people who "cling to their guns and religion." The democrats of this generation are truly opposed to everything that has built this great country and are doing their best to destroy it. Thank heaven there are clear thinkers like you to point out what is happening and support the people who don't but into the democrats view of the world in the endless fight to stop the destruction of our great country.

  31. Common Sense says:

    Good article, I appreciate the insights of this one.

    The reason I thought Hillary was going to win despite her obvious lying, cheating, etc., was because I remember D.C. mayor Marion Berry was reelected after getting out of prison for coke use/possession. I thought people didn't care that much about corruption. They're ALL corrupt, aren't they.

  32. MakeAmericaSexyAgain says:

    If there's one person in this world I truly love, its Robert J. Ringer.
    The words of Winning Through Intimidation still inspire me now, like they did 40 years ago.
    Perhaps the most inspiring part was when he walked into the bank wearing a black suit,
    with black sunglasses and a black briefcase…. and walked out with 50,000 cash.
    I also got excited about the Learjet. I would compare it to the HondaJet today. So sexy.
    By the way , I'm also a HUGE Donald Trump supporter. I love his books too!

  33. Jose Jackson says:

    People laughed at Trump being President, said it could never happen. Maybe first woman president should be Sara Palin. She was one of the first supporters of Trump. If that happened that but enough of a push to have California leave the USA for good. Of course we the USA will keep the Central Valley agriculture and charge California 100 times more for water. Some people may have to cash in their Silicon Valley shares to pay for their, if the Silicon Valley shares of not been totally shorted out by then.
