Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey

It can often be difficult to navigate amongst the various news reports these days, whether they appear on TV, online or in print.  Sometimes it’s hard to tell which news items (or stories) are based on truth… or a lie.

Many people I know are sick of it all and choose not to even listen or watch the TV news anymore.  They prefer reading their news online at trusted conservative sites and/or blogs.  Can’t blame them!

I feel happier when I’m busy with family and friends.  Tuning out the rancor going on in the political world can be soothing for the mind, heart, and soul!

A new article appeared on the WND website that was very interesting, but I wouldn’t label it as “prophecy.”

WND:
Trump ‘prophecy’ novels from 1896 hit home in 2017
Characters include ‘Baron Trump,’ key venue Russia, theme = ‘resistance’

Well, at least they put the prophecy word in quotes so as not to compare it to biblical prophecy.

Excerpt:

A 19th century American novelist’s work is attracting more notice in 2017 than it did in his day because of striking similarities to current events.

Ingersoll Lockwood, an attorney and political writer, wrote several books, including children’s stories featuring the name “Baron Trump.”

baron-trumps-marvelous-underground-journey-600Trump, an aristocratically wealthy young man living in Castle Trump, is the protagonist of Lockwood’s first two fictional novels, “The Travels and Adventures of Little Baron Trump” and “His Wonderful Dog Bulgar and Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey.” The little boy, who has an unending imagination and “a very active brain,” is bored with his luxurious lifestyle, so he visits Russia to embark on an extraordinary adventure with “the master of all masters,” a man named Don. President Donald Trump’s youngest son’s name is “Barron.”

Before leaving for Russia, Baron Trump is told his family’s motto is: “The pathway to glory is strewn with pitfalls and dangers.” In Russia, he is in search of the entrance to a pathway into alternative dimensions.

Ironically, Lockwood’s final novel arrived in 1896, titled “The Last President.”

The story begins with a scene from a panicked New York City in early November, describing a “state of uproar” after the election of a widely controversial outsider candidate.

Read the rest at link above.
Admittedly, the book could be considered quite prophetic, in a secular, political way.  Especially because the book contains it’s own anarchists and socialists protesting against those who hate “the rich and those they perceive as oppressors” in the novel.

What was even more interesting to me were the comments! I read the article last night, but just the few comments that were posted there were very diverse!  Some were arguing that no such book exists.  Then, others made claims that they ordered their own copies on Amazon.

Interesting though…isn’t it?

    Yeah…ain’t that somethin’! Have you tried to determine which is which?

    Of course, covering your ears won’t actually change anything; the DPRK is still rattling its sabers (now with greater reach), cops have been given semi-official license to rough up those whom they arrest, and certain people in White House circles are still under federal investigation. Even the trusted conservative sites no longer deny this, and since you patronize such sites, you must not mind very much.

    True. I recntly returned from a family reunion in Atlanta, and for a few days forgot about all those nasty things you describe…but I still kept one ear on the news. During my service time many years ago, I was similarly enjoying myself on leave when I heard that a Korean airliner had been destroyed by Soviet aircraft, and since I was attached to the base where the search initiated from, I listened for a recall to return there. It didn’t come, but it taught me something: if you don’t learn to live with reality, reality will come to live with you.

    As for Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey…I think you’ve been punked again. It sounds just a bit too prophetic, a little too precise. I’m good enough with a pencil to produce a book cover in that late-Victorian style, and many examples of such books still exist to emulate from.

    What was even more interesting to me were the comments! I read the article last night, but just the few comments that were posted there were very diverse!  Some were arguing that no such book exists.  Then, others made claims that they ordered their own copies on Amazon.

    I don’t believe it’s true…but then…nobody ever listens to Cassandra.

    Interesting though…isn’t it?

    No. As somebody recently remarked, “Sometimes it’s hard to tell which news items (or stories) are based on truth… or a lie.”
    Now, if it can also be ordered at Barnes & Noble, then you might have something.
