Predictions for 2014

Here are my fearless forecasts for 2014.

• The Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit will be completely dismissed against some defendants. The remaining defendants will file counterclaims and win those counterclaims in summary judgments. There won’t be a trial. The whole thing will be over before the summer.

• The Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness will not survive motions to dismiss, and there will be a lot more of them after The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin begins to actually serve defendants. He will affect service on most of them by 10 January, resulting in about a dozen more motions to dismiss being filed before the end of the month. All of his responses will be will be due by mid February. This case may be gone before Spring.

• The Kimberlin v. Kimberlin Unmasked copyright lawsuit will be dismissed as a dormant case.

• Neal Rauhauser will continue to evade arrest on his outstanding warrants for several more months.

• Bill Schmalfeldt will run out of new radio formats and simply broadcast a 400 Hz tone at 30% modulation. Both listeners will marvel at the increased information content.

• The utter stupidity of Obamacare will translate into Republican control of the Senate after the mid-term elections.

• A Republican will win a state-wide election in Maryland this year.

• No Democrat will win a state-wide race in Texas this year.

• Israel will not permit Iran to posses a nuclear weapon.

• Criswell (aka Xenophon the Troll) will get a prediction correct the day after the Chicago Cubs win the World Series.

• Your Mileage May Vary.

  1. Mostly pretty solid predictions, and a lot of things I can’t wait to see.

    The only caveats I can see to these is as follows:

    1. Israel is actually fairly liberal for the size of its military; it absolutely loathes going to war even if wholly justified in doing so. If it gets enough assurances from the U.S. (perhaps in the form of new Iran sanctions going into effect over Obama’s veto, among other assurances), it might wind up missing some signals from Iran and miss the window to strike. Or Iran’s program might be too far advanced now (or would be, by the time Israel would strike) to take out without an outright war or a costly aerial siege.

    2. The success of Republicans relies on them not doing something incredibly stupid. If they break or yield on a major issue immediately prior to the primaries or election, or if they break on something this spring and hand Obama a success (on immigration, the minimum wage, or by reforming Obamacare without repealing it.) then they very well may toss the Senate away. It would take something fairly massive to reverse the damage we’ve already seen- and even more to prevent the damage we will see once people see their insurance from their employer change and cancelled- but it’s not something you can ever put beyond Congress. When you think you have something idiotproof, they will build a better idiot.

  2. If Schmalfilth tries your broadcast idea and it ends up giving him a big bump in ad revenue, the rules of civility would require him to split that revenue with you.

    There’s no doubt that your idea would be a really big improvement over his current format.
