    psychic nikki's predictions for 2019, Psychic to the stars. She is a witch. LOLOL

    Psychic Nikki, psychic to the stars, is always in a good mood this time of year. December is a month of celebration, for enjoying family and friends. It’s also a time for reflecting on the previous year and looking forward to the year ahead. Many of Nikki’s predictions for the last year came to pass, so what does she see in the year ahead?

    As the calendar turns from 2018 to 2019, and Father Time passes on his wisdom to the Baby New Year, we asked Psychic Nikki to shed some light on the year ahead. This is what she sees for the the coming year.

    The world will still be a tumultuous place (sorry). As Nikki sees it, there are “…going to be a lot of protests worldwide” and “the U.S. government will be one of the big stories.” “the stock market is going to be up and down.”

    Extreme weather events will continue, possibly growing in frequency and severity. “I see more tsunamis, more hurricanes, powerful ones, snowstorms, all that kind of thing, and real powerful ones. And heat waves in places that shouldn’t be… The weather is very mixed up.”

    As forces beyond our control worsen, people will look to create some calm in their own lives. “People want to be happier.” The pursuit of happiness is a fundamental right, of course, regardless of outside forces. And even the smallest effort is worthwhile. There are ways to channel your individual energy to outsize effect. As Psychic Nikki predicts, “I think people are going to be kinder to each other, which is a good thing.” It certainly is.

    And if we can’t find someone on this planet to be nice to, perhaps someone from somewhere else will come into our lives. “…You’re going to hear more voices coming from outer space.” And not just voices, either. Psychic Nikki is certain of that. “We’re going to see more UFOs coming to earth… I wouldn’t be surprised if a spaceship landed by the end of 2019, 2020 for sure. I don’t think it’s going to be anything to be scared of. I just think there’s another planet like us out there.”

    Celebrities often seem like they live on another planet, and some of our brightest stars may wish they did as 2019 wears on. “I think Elon Musk, he has to watch his smoking habits and everything else. I’m getting a little bit of negativity around him. He has to watch his health and well-being.”

    And he’s not the only one. “Sylvester Stallone has to watch himself, as does Arnold Schwarzenegger, he has to watch himself for sure.”

    “Selena Gomez, she has to watch it. I’m a little worried about her well-being.”

    Look for a few bumps in the road for the royal family. “Meghan Markle… I see them happy for now. But later on she’s going to have a problem with the paparazzi, like Princess Diana did. So that could put a damper on their marriage…”
    Lady Gaga, on the other hand, can look forward to an even brighter 2019. “I’m pretty sure she’s going to win an Oscar and a Golden Globe and all kinds of awards for her movie, A Star Is Born. And her career will go way up. She’s very deserving of it. She’s very talented, and she’s going to get her awards.”

    We should all be so lucky. Well, maybe we can be the next time a lottery jackpot climbs into the stratosphere. According to Psychic Nikki, “I do see a big 7 around you. I’ve got 7, 8, 5… those three numbers around you. 9, 14, and 15.”

    Unfortunately, everyone who plays the lottery won’t win. But at least we have our health (knock on wood). And 2019 should be a healthier year for all of us.

    Psychic Nikki sees “…a lot of breakthroughs in health areas as well. Breakthroughs in breast cancer; breakthroughs in Alzheimer’s; breakthroughs with arthritis as well.”

    “And as we go on into 2020, there’s going to be a lot of cures for a lot of diseases.”

    The future is looking brighter, even if uncertainty seems to be today’s only true constant. Psychic Nikki is confident that “a happier time [is] coming up. I don’t think it will happen in 2019 totally. Not everything’s going to be doom and gloom… I think there are happy times ahead as we move onward… not so much drama in the world.”

    Psycho.

    That's how Michel de Notredame (Nostradamus) got his rep. He'd take his narcotics before visiting the King, self-hypnotize on top of the drugs, and babble. Later, after crap happened, the court lackeys were there to say how Nostradamus predicted in in his obscure way.

    I liked the first few Pirates movies.

    But, they kinda wore it all out.

    Still think the whole series would have been a bit better if they had avoided the STRONG "fantasy" tropes. (Still have some "magick" in the story, but, not to the degree that they had.)

    Backstory to the hollyweird anti-trump blacklist.


    Debra Messing and Eric McCormack, billed as “co-stars” of something called Will & Grace, have called for the “blacklisting” of those attending fundraisers for President Trump. As the Washington Examiner put it, this was “so that Hollywood Democrats could refuse to work with them in the future.” As RT.com had it, this drew “natural comparisons to the late Sen. Joe McCarthy’s efforts in the 1950s to rid Hollywood of ‘Communist sympathizers.’” These efforts might pack more clout if they had the history right.
    The primary investigator of Communism in Hollywood was a House committee that started with a probe of fascism during the 1930s, and as William F. Buckley said, should have been called the Committee to Investigate Fascism and Communism. It wound up being called the House Committee on Un-American Activities and after World War II, congressional sleuths were after Communist International (Comintern) agent Gerhart Eisler, whose brother Hanns Eisler was a composer in Hollywood.

    When HCUA reps showed up there, that caught the attention of many in the dream factories. As Budd Schulberg noted, the Communist Party was the only game in town during the 1930s and 1940s. The CPUSA controlled unions that read incoming scripts and trashed the work of conservative writers. The Party also smeared and blacklisted actors they didn’t like and attacked them directly during the violent studio strikes and jurisdictional disputes following World War II. The chief anti-Communists were liberal Democrat union leaders such as Ronald Reagan of the Screen Actors Guild and Roy Brewer of IATSE, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.

    Reagan was one of the “friendly” witnesses before an HCUA hearing in Washington in November of 1947. The “unfriendly” witnesses, originally 19, were pared down to the “Hollywood Ten,” including Stalinist screenwriters Dalton Trumbo and John Howard Lawson, CPUSA straw boss in the talent guilds. Defiant studio heads proclaimed they would not fire Communists but changed their minds after the hearings.

    That was the origin of the “Hollywood Blacklist” legend, and it all took place before Joe McCarthy was any kind of player. Senators do not serve on House committees and McCarthy never had anything to do with Hollywood. His wild, accusatory style did great harm to anti-Communists, particularly the liberal Democrats among them. Anybody who raised any concern about Communism could be smeared with “McCarthyism,” a preferred incantation of the Left for decades. (Although it is crucial to stress that McCarthy’s cause, not his style, was legitimate and has been vindicated.)

    The antics of Debra Messing, Eric McCormack and others are more characteristic of Hollywood Communists during the Stalin Era than the late Senator from Wisconsin. The blacklisted screenwriters survived under a free-market system in which they ghosted scripts and sold them under the table. Dalton Trumbo, who joined the CPUSA during the Stalin-Hitler Pact, even got a hagiographical biopic in 2015. Few if any Hollywood movies dare to dramatize Stalinist terror, but some are enlightening about the Communist Party on the domestic front.

    After 1947, Stalin strengthened his hold on Eastern Europe by taking over Czechoslovakia. He exploded the first Soviet atomic bomb in 1949, and launched a widespread purge of writers and artists. The victims included Solomon Michaels and Itzak Feffer, who had been brought to Hollywood in 1943 for the express purpose of denying Soviet anti-Semitism. These and other atrocities made formerly reticent witnesses willing to testify before the HCUA.

    In his 1953 testimony, Robert Rossen (All the King’s Men) told the Committee the victims of recent show trials in Czechoslovakia, “were all hung for being Jews, and nothing else.”

    Another who chose to testify was director Elia Kazan (A Streetcar Named Desire), who became a target-rich environment for Party hacks. He responded with On the Waterfront, written by Budd Schulberg.

    Marlon Brando plays longshoreman and former boxer Terry Malloy, under the thumb of mob boss Johnny Friendly, played by Lee J. Cobb. When the mob bumps off Terry’s brother, Malloy decides to talk to the waterfront crime commission.

    “You ratted on us, Terry,” yells the mob boss, to which Terry responds, “I’m glad what I done to you. You hear that? I’m glad what I done, and I’m gonna keep on doing it.”


    The movie won eight Oscars, including best picture, but as Kazan explained years later, “On the Waterfront was my own story. Every day I worked on that film I was telling the world where I stood and my critics to go and fuck themselves.” Kazan passed away at the age of 94 in 2003, but his art and courage remain an example to this day.

    Elia Kazan stood up to a powerful Communist Party that blacklisted others on the basis of their politics. Debra Messing, Eric McCormack and others now seek to do the same with those who show support for Donald Trump, the duly elected President of the United States.

    Trump supporters everywhere could be forgiven for telling the Hollywood Democrats to go fuck themselves. And if they felt like adding “I’m glad
