Broke the Koch Brothers' Takeover of America

Last Sunday, an LA Times correspondent sat down with a modern-day prophet hailing from Utah. His name was Leeland Freeborn, but he’s popularly known as the “Parowan Prophet.” He went through to the other side and saw God’s plan when he crashed his prop plane and dove into a three-week coma. That was back in 1975, and he’s been spewing prophecy ever since. (Being a hardcore Mormon, he’s also taken on a few more wives.) He’s been foreseeing a general fire and brimstone calamity pretty regularly for the past two decades. But he has taken the occasional time out to make American pop-culture predictions that us regular folk can dig on. For instance, he predicted O.J. Simpson’s murder acquittal and Al Gore’s winning of the popular vote in 2000. These days, he’s got another urgent message for Americans:

I have passed 100,000 hits on my Web site with free survival information. Google has my site listed. Now I think that you should hear what my opinion about the Obama election is: that he will not be the next president.

100,000 hits! Listed on Google! People are starting to listen, finally! But what is the prophet saying? Well, gather ‘round and listen close, the Parowan Prophet has seen visions of a nuclear war that will break out soon, like in the next 32 days. In a vision, delivered to Mr. Freeborn by the holy ghost of discounts, Sam Walton, as he was cruising on his wheelchair through his local Wal-Mart for a little holiday shopping, he saw America’s first Black president-elect engulfed in flames, disintegrating moments before inauguration. Was he an innocent victim swept up in a nuclear attack? Or was he seeing the world’s first assassination-by-nuke attempt? Does he want people to stop it? Actually, he’s not too clear on all that.

Now at this point you might be thinking: “What?! Why the fuck would the LA Times send a reporter all the way to Utah to report on this dribble? There’s got to be thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of backwater retards just like him masturbating to images of Obama’s destruction: lynching, burning, quartering, lightning strikes, gunshot, buckshot, frying pan, accidental fall during a basketball game…anything to get that African-American outta there. What were the LA Times thinking, especially given the tight fiscal situation they’re in?” Wonkette expressed this frustration a few days ago in their own lame way. But maybe you don’t know the whole story. Maybe the Times is holding something back, something that shows this guy is the real deal.

Well, as it turns out, there is. And her name is Baba Vanga, the Soviet Babushka Nostradamus.

See, the Parowan Prophet is not alone in predicting a looming nuclear Armageddon that will coincide with a political assassination. His vision has been corroborated by the most reliable prophet of modern times.

Baba Vanga, now deceased, hailed from modern-day Bulgaria. She was born in 1911 and grew up a normal child. But that changed when she was picked up by a mystical tornado that touched down on her farm on a clear blue day. She was found sometime later far from her home and was never the same again. Sand was pouring out of her eyes. The doctors said she would be blind for life. Oh, how wrong they were. From then on, she saw things we could only dream of, things not meant for the eyes of mortals. In other words, she was in business. Until her death in 1996, she worked around the clock taking in the sick, the dumb, the lame and the connected. Not only did she have the power to see the future, she could also heal the sick: she was a one-stop paranormal physician. She was so effective that the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia designated her a state asset, gave her a job and a staff and charged people at the door. All the Party bigwigs came to see her, even Brezhnev.

Baba Vanga was the real deal, there is no doubt about it. She predicted the rise of Vladimir Putin and the sinking of the Kursk. She predicted 9/11 in 1989. In the early 90s she predicted the downfall of Georgia. “I can’t tell you anything,” said Baba Vanga to Zviad Gamsakhurdia, Georgia’s first president right after the creation of the post-Soviet country. “I do not see such a country in the future.” Today, we see that prophecy being played out before our very eyes. Which brings us to Armageddon and Obama’s assassination.

A few years before she died, she predicted that four heads of state would be assassinated in 2008. She also said that a nuclear war would break out around this time. Three assassinations already happened this year. Benazir Bhutto was blown up just a few days before January 1, 2008 (which is well within the legal limit for prophecies). Gabriel Mkhumane, Swaziland’s political opposition leader, was shot down in his car last April. There was, of course, last week’s assassination-by-shoe attempt on George W. Bush. It’s clear that Barack Obama is next, and that a nuclear bomb will be the assassin’s weapon of choice.

The clock is on. Can the Secret Service stop the plot?


Not convinced? Here are more of Baba Vanga’s predictions:

2011 – Due to the radioactive showers in Northern Hemisphere – no animals or plants will be left. Muslims will begin chemical war against Europeans who are still alive.

2014 – Most of the people in this world will have skin cancer and skin-related diseases (as a result of chemical wars).

2033 – Polar ice caps melt. World ocean levels rise.

2043 – World economy is prosperous. Muslims are running Europe.

2046 – Any organs can be mass produced. Exchange of body organs becomes the favorite method of treatment.

2221 – In the search for Alien life, human beings encounter something very frightening.

2256 – Spaceship brings a frightening new disease to Earth.

2262 – Orbits of planets start to change. Mars is under a threat of being hit by a comet.

2271 – Laws of physics revised, since they changed.

2296 – Bright flashes on the Sun. Force of gravity changes. Old space stations and satellites begin to fall.

2299 – In France, there is a partisan uprising against Islam.

2302 – Important new mysteries about the universe are uncovered.

2304 – The mystery of the Moon is uncovered.

2341 – Something frightening is closing in on Earth from space.

    I predict that the Parowan Prophet will be found to be the Amazing Randi’s long lost evil twin. And by evil, I mean Mormon and retarded.

    For an old lady she had some fairly decent sci-fi notions going. I’d be more interested in predictions if they included more spaceships, alien contacts and ominous entities from beyond the stars

  • 3. wArumbAnanekRumm  |  December 23rd, 2008 at 4:08 am

    Baba Vanga used to be a scientologist who turned mormon… but she still sticks to listening to audio-redcitals of Isaac Asimov – glasses don’t work no more, u see…

  • 4. vangelis  |  September 25th, 2009 at 3:00 am

    Yasha Levine, you are obviously not clear what was the ex Soviet Union. It was not geographically related to Bulgaria even less to the ex Yugoslavia. All the same to you, isn’t it?

  • 5. love  |  September 17th, 2010 at 3:39 am

    You may all laugh. My dad told me about Baba Vanga. She was 80% accurate. I’m not sure if what she predicted for the future is what she saw or someone has just written it without her knowledge….or even after her death. It sounds a lot better 5079 than 2012. My dad told me the story of the late singer Silvana Armenovic..she went to see Baba Vanga. She refused to tell her anything about her future. She said if you come next time..I will. Ofcourse she did not come back because she died in a car accident with her sister a short time later. Baba Vanga saw death….

  • 6. Skopje  |  November 6th, 2010 at 5:06 pm

    I come from Macedonia that is the country where Baba Vanjga was born, and I can see that geographically ur not that good so u can google me i guess. so if u read little more about her u can find out some informations that are amazing and unbealivable. And she was defenitely far from retard person. I’m sure that nobody would do this on purpise and write things like this, just for fun. The whole world woul know about that..
    But in fact we just need to hope that the goverments won’t let us happen all this shit coming in the future cs everyrhing happens with the world war III…

    Well, she got the radiation part right, if not the magnitude of the disaster, or the actual cause. According to a lot of sources, it was supposed to be a thermonuclear war, apparently restricted to the northern hemisphere, starting as a conventional conflict last year. A conflict in India in 2008 was supposed to trigger it domino effect style. It seems Vanga had more faith in humankind’s balls, than we deserve merit for.

    There is still time and additional nuclear power plants on Japan’s east coast, though. I Guess it would be a good time to invest in vodka and iodine, heh.
