No mystery -- If Trump survives his tenure as President he will make a pest of himself sniping and insulting anyone who comes after him and making the usual false claims about how wonderful he is and how everyone else in a loser. He will continue boosting his ego and his feeble-minded solutions to nonexistent problems. Those are all cons anyway intended to jazz-up his dwindling fan base. With any luck he will be in a prison cell and we may never have to see him again -- that is my wish.

Whether Chump leaves in 2020 or in 2024 the economy will be the worst we have ever experienced.

Countries won't be solvent and the dollar will explode.

Negative interest rates across the board.

Less FED funding.

Malls will be turned into car lots and Co-ops (already happening).

Real estate will be down 50% by 2024 with inventory sky high.

State parks will start to be used for homeless camps (already happening in city parks).

Many small business' won't be able to stay afloat triggering them to pay many off the books (think Greece) less FED funding.

Automation will ensure at nearly every retail store and fast food restaurant (McDonalds is already starting) the most common job in the country gets erased. You will check out your own stuff at Safeway, Mal-Wart,Home Depot,etc..

Healthcare will decline.

Home schooling will continue to rise.

More elderly living with offspring.

Instead of every other family having a drug addict everyone will have one.

Prisons will lose funding and work camps will rise.

Hispanic population will continue to explode.

Instead of young 99'ers protesting across the country there will be all ages. Thinking Hong Kong Part Deux on Wall Street.

Warmer air temps will increase the likelihood of a pandemic on the world stage. Breakouts in low funding countries will spread. This may ensue later in the decade.. hopefully.


If a war with China and Russia breaks out that may buy us some time, but imo the above is inevitable with us being past the expiration of this expansion cycle. One big consolidation brought to you by the war mongering 1%.


Question is will we be past the tipping point for all the conservative right wingers to turn to a more historical civilized socialist society like those found in Europe? Will there be enough visual evidence to change their stance? Or will they be too proud and holed up in their homes shooting at everything that walks or drives by? Let's not hope the latter...

Next he will be investigated / arrested for his past crimes during his last four years in the White House. You can't openly attack the FBI and other government agencies and not expect them to retaliate in the future. Now if he had friends in congress, he would enjoy some protection from powerful political allies, but the reality he has few, if any friends. The republicans tolerate him because he's the President, when he's not the president anymore, he's toast. After all he hasn't exactly played nice with other politicians, he's used them as tools with threats and bullying to get what he wanted done and toss them aside like a child's toy he's no longer interested in.


So be it high treason or funneling government dollars to one of his many hotels for self enrichment, Trumps going to prison for something. After all $900 a night for a room is beyond outrageous, having travelled for the government, Per diem is at best $200 a night for a room in an expensive city.
The 3rd world Fascist thinking of the Demonics will mean they will try to put Trump, his family and supporters in jail...it's 3rd world mentality and Fascist mentality to do that and that is what I expect the Demonics to do or at least attempt to do....why we need to keep our 2nd amendment rights to protect us from the Demonic mob.

Default Post-Trump? How About The Present?

Regardless of the comments that are already made, nobody really knows. The establishment is being blown up, little by little, and there is still so much work we must do.

First, we've got to re-elect him next year and then go through the second term. Our economy is very good now and stands to only get better. Our culture, on the other hand, is so messed up that it will take more than a generation to fix, and you can't depend on government to do that sort of thing. That's up to the American people (plus those in this country who choose to hate it).

No, folks, we don't know. Not yet, anyway. We don't even know if there are still going to be Republicans and Democrats in the fold in 2024.

Every thing they're reporting about the economy being good right now is based of lagging indicators and misleading. The stock market is being propped up by the 1% preying Trump gets re-elected. People that fell off unemployment are no longer reported. Many small business' have already moved to cash.

Why do you think so many board members are taking buy outs from big hedge funds all of a sudden?

The writing is on the wall.

Finally, a reasonable description why Trump is doing everything he can to stay in office one more term (although you failed to include that he'll be facing a stack of civil lawsuits that reach the moon and beyond) After a second term he'll be at an age where the highlight of his day will be Melanie changing his diapers and feeding him Big Mac's put through a blender and he won't care about much else.

I think the lawless president will hole up Scarface style, refuse to come out of the WH, load up on KFC and hamberders, and will not leave voluntarily, especially if there is an indictment and a divorce waiting for him.

You guys see the world through your propaganda glasses. Say whatever you want about Obama, some may be true, much is not, but there has been NO PRESIDENT IN RECENT TIMES who has gone on foreign soil and crapped on America as much as Trump. NONE!

I get that you hate Obama, he's "the other party" and you don't feel like making the effort to think, but Trump is unlike any president.

Sure, I opposed Bush, Bush and Reagan, but I respected them and the office they held. Trump is not the same as them. I don't just "oppose him". He hates America and is too damned ignorant to understand what we stand for.

Obama was far from perfect, but I'd take him a thousand times over Trump, and I'd take Bush/Bush/Reagan at least 800 times over trump, any day.
