Well everyone–we made through the “phony ending of the world in 2012” that was so well hyped by the media and the internet.  I could write more about that, but instead, I am moving on to life in 2013.  Below are a few predictions for this new year.

THE ECONOMY:  My prayer is that the economy improves this year resulting in higher levels of productive employment throughout the United States.  Whether that will occur or not is up to variables far beyond my control.  Most likely the domestic economy will continue to slowly deteriorate resulting in higher prices for consumer goods (like food, gasoline, etc..).  Prices are high enough as they are and I can barely imagine them getting even higher.  Jobs will continue to be exported to nations like China (and in other nations in Asia).  Let’s hope that Fortune 500 companies (with the help of the Federal government) will enact measures to improve our economy.

TERRORISM:  Iraq and Afghanistan will most likely see more acts of terrorism in 2013 (more so in Afghanistan than in Iraq).  Domestic terrorism carried out by mentally deranged individuals with firearms will most likely be the new threat in America during 2013.  How these types of acts can be stopped in the future is tricky business for authorities to figure out.  A lot of work must be carried out to defend against them in the future.  Hopefully the Department of Homeland Security will continue the good job of stopping what terror plots reveal themselves before the fact. 

SYRIA:  The Assad regime is one of the most evil governments on the planet.  For four decades now (first the father and now his son) have generated a huge amount of terrorism upon the world, but now, they generate most of it upon their own people.  An estimated 60,000 Syrians have died over the last two years in the Syrian revolution and more will die in 2013.  If  President Assad had a brain left in his head he would do something to end the blood shed. Or, he should gather up his money and family and go into exile, and leave his nation to be run by a new Syrian government that is friendly to the people.  Could 2013 prove to be the year that the rebels over throw him?  Only time will tell!

THE CLIMATE:  Nostradamus penned many quatrians about droughts and famines.  He stated that they would start in small areas and then grow larger across many regions.  2012 was a year of remarkable heat extremes and according to the New York Times–34,000 heat records were broken in 2012!  Hey people–global warming is real and the problem appears to be getting worse every year.  I predict that more heat records will be set in 2013!

THE MIDDLE EAST:  Hezbollah got an intense pounding by Israel in 2012 after they launched missiles at them from the West Bank in 2012.  I doubt their  mistake will be repeated  again in 2013.  Will Iran continue to export drone aircraft to Hezbollah this year?  Let’s hope not.  If Iran continues their nuclear program without coming clean with the West–more problems will develop for them in 2013.  I think the area in and around Yemen might be a region that continues to produce Jihadist leaders in the future. Turkey, which borders Syria (and is a NATO member) have fielded Patriot missiles as a shield against any offensive acts by the Syrian government. 

HURRICANES: I think that hurricanes will continue to pound the USA in 2013 with the southern US as the region that will suffer the most. Nostradamus penned a quatrain about hurricanes hitting the New Orleans area, so, my prediction is based upon this quatrain being a trend in the future.

EARTHQUAKES:  Small earthquakes happen all over the world every year.  But I think that parts of Asia will see the worst of them this year (around the Pacific rim of fire).  Chile could get the worst of them in South America this year.  The New Madrid fault line (in parts of Tennessee, Arkansas, Illinois, and Missouri) will one day pose a major problem for the United States when it finally collapses–but let’s hope that it won’t occur in 2013!

GUN CONTROL:  Gun Control will be a complex topic of debate this year.  There are more guns than people in the United States. Both sides of the debate have good points to make, but in the long run, I think that sweeping measures will occur in this area in 2013.

ITS December 21, 2012 AND THE WORLD HASN’T ENDED YET, by Victor Baines

Hello everyone,   December 21st, 2012 is here and the world hasn’t ended yet!  No world wide disasters  have arrived or are heading our way ! Most of us are still alive–just like I thought we would be! Are you getting the idea that all of this talk about the world ending on December 21st, 2012–was nothing but a lot of  hype, urban myth, propaganda, and overly wild speculation?  That’s what I’ve been thinking for the last five years!

I have yet to be shown “any tangible evidence” that can truly suggest that the world was suppose to end on December 21st, of 2012!  If anyone thinks that they truly have proof, or some type of evidence, or at least a rational theory of some type that conforms to “common sense” –that points to the world ending some time soon–please send it to me (I’d love to read it).  I’d like to  see how silly it is.  Sorry–no end of the world.

You haven’t t seen “me” (Victor Baines) on any cable TV program saying that I thought the world will end in 2012.  John Hogue,  Vincent Bridges, Jay Wiedner and  others were one’s who said that (not me)!

Then, there were all of the “so-called Mayan scholars” who proclaimed the world would end in 2012, as well as a bunch of paranoid survival gear merchants (and others) who jumped on the “gloom and doom” end of the world band-wagon.  I guess everyone is free to state their personal  opinions on things, but for the record, I’ve never thought that the world will end in 2012.  Nostradamus didn’t write that either. It is a lie that he stated that!

The 2012 Presidential election, trouble in the Middle East, no signs of the world ending yet, by Victor Baines

I  have received a lot of email from people asking me if Nostradamus predicted the outcome of the 2012 American presidential election.  Well the answer is “no”, Nostradamus made no predictions for the outcome of this election.  I am not a political analyst and I do not normally write about election matters.  However, in the last presidential election in 2008, I went out on a limb  and followed my gut instinct and predicted that Obama would be the victor. As fate would have it I was correct! It wasn’t that hard of a prediction to make.

So,  if anyone wishes to know what I think about the outcome of the current presidential election–here it is–I think that president Obama will win the election! If you look at the stats of the American population you will realize that the math adds in support of  the poor voters, versus rich conservative white voters who might vote for Romney.  However, in contrast to the popular vote there is the mysterious electoral collage to consider, which numerically skews the popular vote.  Then, there is the election of 2000 to consider where Gore won, but Bush ended up being the president (resulting in the Supreme Court case Gore vs. the United States).  So who knows what will really happen in the end of it all.. 

Things appear to be heating up again in the Middle East.  Palestinian Terrorists have been flying drones made in Iran over Israel lately.  Everytime they enter Israel’s airspace they are immediately shot down by an F-16. The violence of the endlessly evil Bashara Assad dictatorship is spilling over into Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon.  This is slowly becoming a huge black hole with no end in sight. A huge military exercise between Israel and the United States is occurring this month.  It is designed to send a strong message the foolish president of Iran. And I bet it will indeed. 

As for as an update on the “stupidly predicted” end — we still see NO SIGNS of it happening yet! However, considering the overly high prices that the American public is forced to pay for everything from gasoline, to rent, to electric bills (and even a Big Mac at Mcdonalds), it seems like the world has already ended!  LOL! In a couple of months we will be able to see “what fools” all of these morons are who have flooded the internet with rediculous websites and articles predicting the end of the world in 2012.  I call these people “monkey see–monkee doers” and theyare as full of crap as the day is long.  Hopefully their rediculous websites will soon vanish from the internet in January, 2013.

THE ELEVENTH ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11 IS UPON US, by Victor Baines

Posted September 10, 2012 by vbaines
Categories: Uncategorized

Once again our prayers go out to the victims of 9/11 (as well as to their families and friends) on this eleventh anniversary of their deaths.  We also pray for the safety of all of our military and security people around the world who work so hard to protect our freedom. Almost ten years after September 11th, Osama bin Laden was finally killed by elite Navy Seals in Pakistan. The combination of quick action by our Seals and the quality work of our intelligence community ended the life of “the evil one” who was responsible for the carnage of the September 11 attacks upon our nation.  And as a result of this raid—al Qaeda, or what’s left of it– is still out for revenge against us! 

So, as Americans we must ask ourselves the important question “will any deranged terrorists attempt to perpetrate any new acts of terror against the United States (or our allies) on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11?”  Well, maybe they will, or maybe they wont!  However, in my opinon, I don’t think a terrorist attack on American soil is immenint on this anniversary of the attack.  I don’t feel it in my bones. But last year on the 10th anniversay of 9/11 I stated that I felt like some type of terror attack might occur on 9/13, and in fact one did–but it was limited to an attack on Kabul–and not on American soil.

However, it makes good common sense to “err on the side of public safety” and to take the prudent position that an attack might be imminent!  Therefore, we should “prepare for the worst”, in case the unimaginable happens, so that we can be ready to effectively deal with whatever might come our way (if anything bad comes our way at all). So, “better safe than sorry” when it comes to defending against potential acts of terror!  But unlike the times of 2001, now our military and security teams are prepared for all sorts of attack scenarios against us.  But for some reason, it seemed liked to me that they “dropped the ball” on Sept. 11, 2001!

On September 11th, 2001, I got 1.5 million hits on my web-site due to CNN placing a link on their website to the Nostradamus Society of America,  The awful truth of the matter was that Nostradamus did indeed predict 9/11 in several of his quatrains.  Quatrain 10-72 stated that a “great king of terror was going to arrive in the skies in the seventh month of 1999”. The date 1999 was a numeric anagram for the actual date of the terror attack on 9-11-1. The seventh month of the year in Nostradamus’ lifetime in the 1500’s was the month of September (since he was alive when the Julian calendar was being used).  Now, we use the Gregorian calendar.

In quatrain # 6-97, Nostradamus stated that “the sky would burn at 45 degrees, fire to approach the great New City (his term for the New York City). Instantly a huge scattered flame would leap up” (as it did indeed when the planes crashed into the World Trade Center towers”).  Despite the fact that some evil hoaxers flooded the internet with three phoney quatrains after the attack–the truth of Nostradamus was made clear enough.

If you want to read more about my view about 9/11 (as well as what Nostradamus’ view was) I suggest that you purchase a copy of my book ” Remember the Future (The Prophecies of Nostradamus)” here on my website.  Go to the book order page to place your order now.  If you purchased my book on 9-11-01, I would like to thank you for it once again!

Again, the awful truth of the situation was that I got closer to predicting something like 9/11 in my book than anyone else did–to my knowledge!  God Bless America!

Addendum (Sept. 12th).  Now that terrorists have attacked the American Consulate in Libya on Sept. 11th,  I would have to say that even a corporal in the army would seem to have enough military sense to “beef up security” at embasseys and consulates around the world on (and around) Sept. 11th!  But for some unknown reason (which is beyond me) the American government failed to do so (dropping the ball in my opinion).

Katrina quatrain revisited–Nostradamus scores another hit, by Victor Baines

Posted July 5, 2012 by vbaines

Tags: , , ,

Something tragic, yet interesting in the world of Nostradamus,  occurred again on August, 29th, 2012  (somewhat like it did seven years ago on August 29,  2005).  It has to do with quatrain #9-48, the amazing quatrain that predicted Hurricane Katrina.   And now on August 29th of this year the same thing happened again (but fortunately with lesser intensity) when Hurricane Issac occurred (merely a category one hurricane).  Here is the wording of quatrain #9-48:

THE GREAT CITY OF THE MARITIME OCEAN,

SURROUNDED BY A CRYSTALLINE SWAMP,

IN THE WINTER SOLSTICE AND THE SPRING TIME,

IT WILL BE TRIED BY A FRIGHTFUL WIND.

The first line of this quatrain is reference to the city (and port) of New Orleans.  New Orleans, Louisiana, is a former French colony which has been a major maritime center of commerce since the 1700’s.  The second line of this quatrain has another big clue in it (“surrounded by a crystalline swamp”).  If you think about it, Louisiana is known as “the bayou state” and the area around New Orleans, as well as other parts of the state, consist of swamps, bayous, and marshes–many of them full of water containing salt crystals.  Katrina occurred in what we would call “the summer” (not the spring), but it is a reference to warm weather. The winter solstice mentioned might a reference to the galactic alignment which will occur this year on December 21, 2012.

The fourth line of the quatrain is the punch line “it will be tried by frightful wind”.  Out of all of Nostradamus’ 943 quatrains only one contains a reference to “a frightful wind”, and a city being “tried by it”.  According to my dictionary, the definition of “tried” is this…”tested, having sustained the tests of experience”.  So, New Orleans wasn’t totally destroyed by the winds of Katrina or Issac, just “tried and tested” by it.    The winds in Katrina got as high as 125 mph, and in Issac they got up to 75 mph. 1800 people died in Katrina, with millions in property damage occurring with Issac and Katrina.

In conclusion, it is my hypothesis that New Orleans will be hit by more and more hurricanes as time goes on.  Usually,  each quatrain is a reference to only one event, but in this case, it appears to reference at least two hurricane events, and probably more of them into the future.

EFFECTS OF A NUCLEAR TERRORIST ATTACK IN AMERICA

Categories: Blogroll, Bullentina

According to a recent article by the Associated Press, if terrorists ignited a nuclear device a few blocks away from the White House here is what would happen (keeping in mind we hope this would never ever occur): 

1.      The initial explosion would incinerate everything within a ½ mile radius from the point of ignition.

2.      A super-intensive flash of white light would blind anyone who saw it for many miles in all directions (like you were starring into the sun—but much worse).

3.      A radioactive cloud would fill up the sky and slowly move toward Boston.  But the mind-blowing conclusion of the study revealed ”that just a bit further from the epicenter of the blast, such a nuclear explosion would be pretty survivable”.

Really—“pretty survivable” you say?  Just “how pretty” are we talking about here? Like a “pretty place” to cook hot dogs and have a picnic, or what?  I can’t imagine “anything pretty” about a post-nuclear blast environment—but that’s what the experts are claiming!

Thank God that Osama bin Laden is finally dead!, by Victor Baines

It took about ten years to do it–but Osama bin Laden–the world’s greatest terrorist is now dead.  I felt like  Osama was not hiding out in a cave in Afghanistan, but hiding somewhere in a crowed urban environment.  I thought that Multan was the city he was in, but Islamabad turned out to be his location.

Nostradamus certainly predicted the events of 9/11 in several prophecies and referred to bin Laden as “the great king of Terror” who descended from the sky over “the New City” (an obvious reference to New York City).

People in the United States (and across the world) are now celebrating bin Laden’s death!

The Earthquake, Tsnumai, and Nuclear Problems in Japan, by Victor Baines

Posted March 17, 2011 by vbaines
Categories: Uncategorized

Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of Japan!  Oh, what a horrible tragedy they must be living through at this time.  We wish them lots of luck in fixing the problem at their nuclear facility.

As fate would have it, one of Nostradamus’ predictions (quatrain #2-6) pertains to the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II, and quatrain #3-3 pertains to a huge earthquake in Asia.  So, if we take text from both of these quatrains and put them together in a “compound quatrain”–here is what it states:

” Near the ports and within cities, an earthquake occurs in the depths of Asia, a scourge, the likes of which has never been seen.  Hunger, plague within, people thrown out by steel, crying for help from the great immortal god“.

It is interesting to me how accurate of a picture of real world events can be achieved through this new “compound quatrain method”.  Again–we are praying for the Japanese people and hope that their problems come to an end real soon.

 

THE LIBYAN REVOLUTION PREDICTED BY NOSTRADAMUS, by Victor Baines

Posted February 25, 2011 by vbaines

Tags: , , ,

As I watched the revolution in Libya unfold before me on television, I remembered that Nostradamus wrote several quatrains about that nation.  So, I examined four  quatrains and constructed what I have named “a compound quatrain” which consists of four lines from four different quatrains about the same subject (in this case the subject was Libya).   The source of my compound quatrain came from quatrains #3-27, 4-4, 5-13, and 5-14.  Here is what resulted from my research:

THE LIBYAN PRINCE POWERFUL IN THE WEST, THE IMPOTENT PRINCE ANGRY, COMPLAINTS AND QUARRELS BY THE LIBYAN CHIEF TRAPPED IN THE CONFLICT, PILLAGE BY AFRICANS, FURY GNASHING HE WILL CHASE THE AFRICAN PEOPLE.

The Libyan leader referred to by the names “the Libyan Chief, the Libyan Prince, and the impotent Prince” in these lines is none other than   Moammar Gaddhafi.  And the resulting story  appears to acccurately descibe the events taking place right now in Libya!

Is this amazing or what? So the burning question is “how will all of this end”?  Will Gaddhafi and his family “give up” and fly out of Libya in a private jet to another country?  Will one of his military officers shoot or capture him? Will the Libyan armed forces (and their mercenaries) defeat the rebel forces?  Or, will the Libyan rebels gain the upper hand and defeat the pro-Gaddhafi forces and the Libyan military?  At this point the outcome is unclear, but it will be interesting to see what the “end game” will bring.

Did you see me on “Decoded” on the History Channel? by Victor Baines

I was honored to be included as an expert on the Ancient Prophecies episode in Brad Meltzer’s new series “Decoded”– on the History Channel (first broadcast on Jan. 13, 2011).  I thought that the Decoed Productions team  did an excellent job on the 2012 Prophecies episode. I would like to “thank” Brad Meltzer for being thoughtful enough to include me as a guest on his program.

It is true that Nostradamus predicted that some major earthquakes will one day occur within the United States (but let’s hope that it never happens anytime soon)!  So, if you are interested in Nostradamus and his predictions for the future, I suggest that you buy a copy of my book “Remember The Future (The Prophecies of Nostradamus)” which can be purchased on this website.  My book contains the most relevant prophecies for the future (as per many years of research).  Therefore,  if you are interested in knowing potential future events, order a copy of my book today!

All copies are hand-signed by me before being shipped to the customer (and we ship orders all over the world).  So, help support the literary arts and buy a copy of my book.  I would greatly appreciate your support. “Thank You” to everyone who bought a copy after watching Decoded (on the History Channel).
