Nostradamus’ 2017 Predictions Update: Could Alleged Russian Tampering With Trump Election Prove Experts Wrong?

Nostradamus’ 2017 predictions seemed to be as accessible as never before with the election of Donald Trump, as students of his quatrains immediately seized upon the “Trumpet” connection widely reported last week, including a potential Nibiru connection noted in the Inquisitr. Many Nostradamus researchers were predicting that a Trump election was a precursor to global war. Now the New York Times is reporting that Donald Trump may be in trouble before he is even seated by the Electoral College, due to the alleged assistance of Russian hackers in his election, which could jeopardize some of what many think were Nostradamus’ dire predictions for the coming year.

The effect that the accusations about Russian involvement in U. S. elections could have on attempts to decipher Nostradamus’ 2017 predictions is yet unknown, but roughly three broad options are available. What can be said for certain is little, but for analysis, one could start with three hypotheses. The accusations could completely throw current study of Nostradamus’ predictions into chaos, could have little, or no effect on Nostradamus’ predictions, or could be the absolute catalyst for the war many believe Nostradamus was predicting. Before getting to those scenarios, one must understand the nature of the accusations, and the context that makes them so potentially controversial.

Wait, Donald Trump is the President-elect, right?

That would be a wrong assumption. While Trump won the most electoral votes based on the states where he won the popular vote, he did not win the popular vote overall and is not technically the President-elect until confirmed by the electoral college. A group calling themselves the “Hamilton Electors” have targeted the electoral college to stop the election of Trump since shortly after he won the election. Their key argument was that he was under the influence of a foreign power. It would only take 37 electors to switch votes or vote for a third party to throw the election to the House of Representatives, which could then vote as it saw fit to seat a president.

What happens if all of the researchers are wrong about Nostradamus’ predictions?

Nostradamus’ predictions for 2017 produced a strong consensus among researchers that Trump would bring on war. Ninety-nine percent of the time, electors vote the will of their state. What if the allegations about Russia assisting Trump to win were substantiated in the next few days? That might well send electors scrambling for an alternative and could make all previous research about his predictions wrong.
