Many claim a curious set of novels by Ingersoll Lockwood predicted the life and presidency of Donald Trump — yet the books were written before the turn of the 20th century. Authors and researchers Todd Wood and Walter Bosle joined guest host Richard Syrett (Twitter) to discuss the mystery of Lockwood's bizarre books: The Travels and Adventures of Little Baron Trump and His Wonderful Dog Bulger, Baron Trump's Marvelous Underground Journey, and 1900; Or, The Last President. In the story, Baron Trump travels to the Ural Mountains in Russia, Wood reported, noting a parallel with Donald Trump's affinity for Eastern European women. "Those stories could also have predicted the troubles Donald Trump had with all the turmoil about his relationship with today's Russia," Bosley added.
Donald Trump may have a connection to royalty through his mother, and the name Baron in the novel is a title once used to indicate land ownership, Bosley continued, pointing out Donald Trump made his fortune in real estate developing property. "It's as if Lockwood saw Trump obliquely, and what we have to do is recognize how to interpret what's in the Lockwood books," he suggested. Lockwood may have been privy to special knowledge (as is theorized about fellow contemporary author Jules Verne) from his membership in a secretive group known as the Titans, Bosley revealed. Joseph Wharton was also a member of the Titans and founded The Wharton School, where Donald Trump received his degree, he explained. "It's one of those things that makes you wonder exactly who was seeing ahead, or was the very connection itself [through the Titans]... opening Lockwood up to data," Bosley said.
Wood and Bosley also commented on Lockwood's 1900 novel about a populist candidate who wins the presidency and then the nation falls apart in the third year of his term. Someone even plants an explosive device at the Capitol Building, Wood added. Bosley believes this part of Lockwood's story may actually be about the Biden administration as it is "precognitive in a way that we're still watching play out."
Open Lines followed in the latter half of the program. Collin in Ivanhoe, California, told Richard about a UFO he and his wife have seen on more than one occasion. "It's like in the shape of a football, and it's lime green in color," he reported. Collin also recalled seeing a group of lights in the sky which he described as a "bunch of dots together just flying by." Collin revealed his brother had witnessed a similar group of lights in the skies over Nevada. Collin wondered if the craft could be flying out of Naval Air Station Lemoore, or if they might be extraterrestrial in origin.
Caleb from Illinois shared a fascinating synchronicity he experienced while living outside and hopping freight trains. According to Caleb, he was heading unannounced to see a friend about a 100 miles away. He met a cab driver at a train station along the way, struck up a conversation, and told him the first and last name of the person he was going to see. It turned out the cab driver was the father of his friend. Rob in Vancouver, British Columbia also had an interesting synchronicity involving a relationship. Rob had met a woman decades ago when he was 17 and on a family vacation in the Caribbean. They saw each other on and off a few times, but she desired to roam the islands and they lost touch, he explained. Rob revealed he thought about her last year and decided to look her up. It turns out she had moved to a city only an hour away from him where they briefly reconnected.
