I am about to share with you one of the strangest things that I have come across in a very long time. In the late 1800s, author Ingersoll Lockwood wrote a series of novels which appear to have striking parallels to events happening today. In his first two novels, The Travels and Adventures of Little Baron Trump and His Wonderful Dog Bulgar and Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey, an extremely wealthy little boy with “a very active brain” named Baron Trump is guided on a series of extraordinary adventures by a man known as “Don”. And if you can believe it, little Baron Trump’s adventures actually begin in Russia…
For starters, the main character’s name is the same as President Donald Trump’s son, albeit spelt differently. Trump’s adventures begin in Russia, and are guided thanks to directions provided by “the master of all masters,” a man named “Don.”
Before leaving for his voyage through the unknown, Trump is told of his family’s motto: “The pathway to glory is strewn with pitfalls and dangers.”
Illustrations from the novels depict Trump dressed in lavish, old-fashioned clothing and jewelry as he departs from Castle Trump and begins his voyage, heading to Russia to locate an entrance into alternate dimensions.
That is strange, right?
Subsequently, Lockwood wrote another novel entitled “The Last President” in which the election of a very unpopular “outsider candidate” sparks huge mob riots by “anarchists and socialists” in New York City. The following comes from the Daily Mail…
The story opens in a New York City in turmoil. It’s early November right after the election of an enormously opposed candidate.
The East Side of the city, which is where the Women’s March began the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, is in a ‘state of uproar.’
The 19th century book says police officers shouted through the streets as ‘Mobs of vast size are organizing under the lead of anarchists and socialists, and threaten to plunder and despoil the houses of the rich who have wronged and oppressed them for so many years.’
‘The Fifth Avenue Hotel will be the first to feel the fury of the mob,’ the novel continues. ‘Would the troops be in time to save it?’
Of course anarchists and socialists would not be rioting if a Democrat was elected, so obviously the president in this particular story would be a Republican.
And today Trump Tower actually stands on Fifth Avenue.
I don’t know if there is any special significance to any of this. I just found these parallels to be absolutely fascinating, and I thought that I would share them with all of you. Some people out there believe that Ingersoll Lockwood was trying to warn us about our future, but others are downplaying the parallels that these stories have with modern day events. For example, this is how Snopes concluded their article on this matter…
Although these books contain some seemingly bizarre coincidences, they are not evidence that Donald Trump has access to a time machine. Time travel conspiracy theories such as this one pick and choose material that supports their conclusions while ignoring everything else. For instance, these books also contain giant turtles, alternate dimensions, a battle with a big white crane, a dog named Bulgar, and a little smiling man frozen in time. Since these aspects have no clear connection to the Trumps, they are omitted from the conspiracy theory.
Before I end this article, let me share with you another “amazing coincidence” that I just came across.
By now, all of you have probably heard about the remarkable solar eclipse that is going to take place on August 21st. Well, it also turns out that the path of this solar eclipse will almost entirely cross areas of the country that voted for President Trump…
A Boston Globe article attempting to make a connection between the solar eclipse and President Trump supporters is being widely mocked on social media.
The article by Globe reporter Matt Rocheleau, titled “The solar eclipse path will overwhelmingly pass over Trump Country,” starts off by asking the question, “Is the eclipse throwing shade at Clinton supporters?”
In fact, of the approximately 240 counties that this eclipse will cross, a whopping 92 percent of them voted for Trump last November…
He said the path is roughly 70 miles wide and spans about 240 counties — 92 percent of which swung in Mr. Trump’s favor, “while fewer than two dozen counties voted for his opponent, Hillary Clinton.”
The article points out that Mr. Trump himself was born on June 14, 1946 — the same day there was a total lunar eclipse, “though it wasn’t visible from the United States, NASA records show.”
To me, that is rather remarkable, but once again many are pointing out that this could potentially be “just a coincidence”.
When it comes to Trump, there seems to be so many of these “coincidences”. For instance, on his first full day in office Trump was 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old, and that just happened to take place in year 5777 on the Hebrew calendar.
And here are some more extremely strange numbers that I discussed in a previous article…
-Israel was 77 days old exactly 777 days after Donald Trump was born.
-Israel’s 70th birthday will come exactly 700 days after Trump’s 70th birthday.
-Donald Trump won the election on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s 7th year, 7th month and 7th day in office.
I don’t know what special significance all of these facts may have, but I do know that we are living in highly unusual times.
All of human history has been leading up to the times that we are moving into, and I believe that we are going to see great chaos and upheaval. But there is no other time in human history when I would have rather lived, and I can’t wait to see what is going to happen next.

When will people learn what an anarchist is? People think anarchy= chaos, anarchy simply means lack of kings or rulers. True freedom IS anarchy. I am an anarchist as I have no need or want for others to rule over me. The golden rule/ Natural law is all I want, the rest is slavery.
Anarchy=lack of rulers=chaos=only a few left standing=natural law. Fine for you, but I would rather have a civil society minus all this other insane bullshit that makes no sense that is allowed to fester.
In truth all men are anarchists. We all think that our own personal freedom supersedes all others. You may argue that you prefer the comfort of civil society; but, in a pinch you’d fight like any cornered dog. Or…. get the sh*t kicked out of you. Anarchy does require one thing in short supply nowadays. Responsibility for one’s actions. In the entirety of that duty. For anarchy does not merely mean teh freedom to do whatever one wishes to do. Rather it means that each man is ultimately held to pay for all that he does. That is the truest of civil societies. I agree that anything less is indeed as ‘Genius’ put it – slavery. Like him, I don’t need to be told what to do. I work, get my pay, take care of my life and do what I can, when I can and need no other to tell me to do any of it. Government is simply a mechanism to shrug off all of that onto the ‘shoulders’ of some supposed ultimate and all-moral, all-correct arbiter of life. Bull. I am my own government. I will act justly and in accordance with both natural law and those principles designed by a much greater power than anything man can construct.
There is an ancient proverb which I have quoted before:
“Keep your water supply source close, and keep the authorities (rulers) far (away)!” That pretty much sums it all up for a prepper/survivalist/anarchist.
It seems like people are reaching to much. And NO, I would NOT vote for michelle oloser for President!!
Can you say DUMBA$$ ??????
Z_ck, you s_ck
Zuckerberg in 2020
If Trump doesn’t ditch NAFTA, he won’t get our vote in 2020.
Send him a post card.
Let him know how you really feel.
No NAFTA, no NATO, no UN
So many “coincidences” regarding Donald Trump.
North Korea now making missile-ready nuclear weapons, U.S. analysts say
(currently posted on Drudge Report)
hey, y’all, i hear there is an absolutely FANTASTIC meteor shower saturday night. i heard it will be the best one in our lifetimes.
Don’t forget…..It was also predicted by St. Malachy: A “Prophecy of the Popes” claimed to predict that there would be only 112 more popes before the Last Judgment. Francis is the last Pope, a devout socialist/Marxist, and in-line with the antichrist & the NWO. We are truly in the end times.!!!!
Yes, you all have been saying that for twenty centuries now. I’m still waiting ….
Maybe the Yellowstone volcano will erupt during the eclipse and rain toasty little gray men down upon us from their ruined spaceships in the sky …
You have a fine memory to recall our statements over the last 20 centuries. Most impressive.
Glad we can finally put this to rest and sing a new tune.
If your reading comprehension was up to 8th grade standards, you would realize that “you all” SHOULD have been saying it for centuries. It COULDN’T happen until now.
Perhaps you won’t have much longer to “wait”.
Someone(?) predicted that the Catholic pope now in charge will be the last pope. Later, the pope, himself, said the same thing– he will be the last pope.
The president of my church died in 2011 and someone else took her place. Now, for the first time, there is no vice president. NO VICE PRESIDENT–5 years later!!
Weird stuff going on…
Trump already was the last PUPPET and TOOL President of the criminal treasonous psychopaths controlling the United States Corporation Government…sorry Trumpbot cowards, the vice peddling pussy grabber has already been neutered by the “deep state”. The psychopaths now have their Military Junta completely in charge in Police State hell on earth New Babylon America, so the GREAT PLAN and FINAL SOLUTION the psychopaths have dreamed of all their Luciferian demonic lives is now IMMINENT….Good Luck
Ron Ahrens…I never get tired of you telling it like it is. So on the spot.
The globalist and deep state are a greater threat than North Korea could ever be. If this country explodes it will because of them.
LOL! For the first time ever, Michael Snyder came up with something that made me laugh.
Blackjack, WHEN this country explodes it will be because of the deep state. Deep state needs to be exterminated.
I agree and it is just around the corner. None of us want a civil war but it is coming whether we want it or not.
We will ALL die folks, get ready and accept it. . .
Those in charge have all of the plans figured out down to a tee. How can you not imagine that they have got this far controlling every aspect implementing the plan with negligent pushback? It will take people associating publicly and peacefully in major numbers to begin any change movement. When those people are battered down by the police state on steroids more will join the effort, though some will cower in place. That’s the only chance to reverse tyranny and install common sense measures for the people. The systematic erosion of liberty has to stop somewhere. The peoples future depends on citizen action. Anyone have a better idea? I don’t believe there is one.
Did a novelist from the 1800’s warn us about the future? No. There no such thing as predicting the future. Period. And screw Nostradamus, too.
Maybe but then again maybe not. Step into the Way Back Machine back to the time period when Obama was running for office and after he was elected. I do recall a couple of internet prophets warning us that Obama was going to be our last president. Or how Obama was going to declare martial law and become a dictator, rather than leave office. So maybe Trump will be our last president. But I am not going to quit my day time job just yet. Remember Jesus warned us about false prophets, wars and rumors of wars and to not let any of that bad news make us afraid or troubled.
NVB, good points. I wish I could rule out Trump being the last president. But if anything happens to him, it will be civil war 2. It will be the deep state taking over for the NWO and we will have to fight them.
There’s nothing special about the solar eclipse. I read one article that said it was unusual that it would travel from west to east. All solar eclipses travel basically from west to east in a wavy path that, in places is more north-south, but still always west to east.
I saw the one on March 7, 1970, and it was 100% total where I was living. The birds went to roost, the temperature went down, and roosters crowed when the sun reappeared. This one will only be about 86% total where I am now.
Here’s where you can download your own copy of “The Last President”:
And “Baron Trumps’ Marvellous Underground Journey”:
I predict that the future is unknown, for the most part.
Donald Trump has access to a time machine.
GREAT SCOTT! HE STOLE IT FROM DOC BROWN!!!
… Oh shit man, it’s Biff.
Oh look I have chicken bones.
No, no, no…. you need Goat intrails for this. Chicken bones don’t have the correct JuJu. Don’t you ever watch NatGeo?
Archivist.. I remember the 1970 eclipse because it was my 20th birthday. I don’t think much was visible in Florida. Somebody told me we would get about 86% of the August 21 eclipse here, I don’t believe it. Much ado about nothing I think. On the warmongering, the drums are beating loudly no matter how you look at it. The so called fake media are pushing it strongly, so in that regard Trump fits right in with the media he trashes constantly. That they agree there is the bigger story. On the anniversary of the murder of 130,000 humans at Nagasaki, the first use of a nuclear bomb against humanity, the pathocracy can’t wait to repeat that idiocy. To silence massive dissent in America I would not doubt this criminal cabal in present control using a nuke on the American people.
Why don’t you believe the percentage of totality for the eclipse? They have been predicting these things down to the second for decades.
The 1970 eclipse just crossed the central coast of NC. It was 100% in just a few counties.
At least its the numbers 777 instead of 666!
Great comment Old Guy.
That’s the significance of all the comments alright.
They said W would be the last, then Barry was the last – and an anti-Christ with Hillary or Pelosi the Beast; so now we push the fear porn off on Mr. T.
Leave me along, I just want to stay busy, it has been a long, dark 8 years.
I wish I could sell collapse/nuke insurance to these readers. Pay me $1,000 each week a nuke doesn’t go off around a 5 mile radius of your home. And if a nuke does go off within 5 mile radius, I’ll pay out the policy in full. Or pay me $1,000 each week the dow remains above 5,000. And if the dow goes below 5,000, I’ll pay out the policy in full. I know these policies will never payout.
In the Bible, the number 7 is associated with something being finished or complete. So maybe all those occurrences of 7 associated with Trump indicate something final. In numerology the number 7 is associated with those who are spiritual, intelligent, analytical, focused, introspective, studious, intuitive, knowledgeable, contemplative, serious, persevering, refined, gracious and displays much inner wisdom. Well that’s not exactly Trump. So who knows.
He did not.
You desperately frightened ferret.
Well I dunno. Im not gonna say one way or the other. I do know such things as miracles and divine intervention actually do exist. Most things I tend to be skeptical about. this article fits that category. Some stuff we know its bullshit right away. That’s why in not a Christian. yep believe the myth that all you gotta do is give to the church and believe what is brainwashed into you and you will get to heaven. Well I don’t want something for nuthin. I never asked anyone to die on a cross twenty centurys ago for my so called sins. I want full credit for all my deeds both good and bad. They claim he was a carpenter? show me one thing he made? More than likely he was a flim flam artist False propet that never produced anything.
There’s nothing in the Bible saying you have to give to a church to be saved.
You need to read the New Testament a few more times.
Maybe Trump was aware of the novel.
This story: I see nothing but ‘con’-incidences and made up bullshit. I saw three bunny rabbits on my lawn during April of 1973, and it rained in Toledo last week!! I suppose in order to keep your gang of gullible followers, one must constantly release hokum (hokum if you got ’em).
You know it’s bullshit when the title of the shit ends with a question mark!! I expect these kinds of stories to come from the DNC, CNN NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX and all on-line shystersites. Is shtfplan.com merely a moneymaking fishing expedition? LOL
