Past Forecasts Unfolding
Clinton Candidacy Unquestioned
Clinton Election, Not
And so It Begins as
As we started
divining our forecast for Secretary Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential prospects
as far back as March
9, 2013, we began with the central concept that strong opposition to a
Clinton presidency exists within the Democratic party itself. In our May
28, 2013 UWFR issue, we
followed up our assessment of Mrs. Clinton’s chances with this observation:
popular as Hillary Clinton is today among Americans, people forget that not
long ago she was a polarizing figure disliked by even many Democrats - a
politician with very high negatives.
She became popular, in our view, precisely because of her aura of
competency and strength (ruthlessness?).
What will happen if the curtain is pulled just a bit, and people get a
clear glimpse of what’s really behind this political wizard that has for the
last twenty years managed to overcome every political scandal, debacle, and
charge [“box cars of (incriminating) baggage” as someone put it in
In our February
10, issue of this year we said, “…Clintonites will seek ways to put distance
between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Obama reign.” In that same issue we posited the
Democratic candidacy of Senator Elizabeth Warren. We got some feedback from some of our
friends ridiculing this assertion.
But, UWFR was right. To wit: New York Post story published Sunday
confirms Senator Warren may very well be poised, by other Democrats, to run
against the apparent heir. You, as a UWFR reader, saw it here first.
Lastly, and most
recently, in our June
23 issue we said “Allies of Hillary Clinton will try to put the word out
through news stories that Secretary Clinton was often in disagreement with
the President, and will damage Barack Obama’s reputation as much as is

We report this,
as we are aware that many of our readers forget our forecasts. We have gotten several requests for a way
to look back at past forecasts, and their outcomes. We are working on this now, and hope to
have something in this vein in the next couple of months.
In the meantime,
as a brief review of our track record, here are some other critical
forecasts that UWFR got right
before anyone else, (or contrary to everyone else).
February 2011 on
Facebook, we forecast the implosion of Rick Perry’s presidential candidacy
eight months before he entered the race.
In January 2012, he withdrew after his candidacy imploded.
We forecast the
re-election of Barack Obama in November
of 2010, in the wake of the Republican midterms election sweep, when
all others talked about a national ideological realignment (not least among
In our January
18, 2013 issue, when all were fawning over Governor Chris Christie and
of his leading presidential chances for 2016, we said this:
The media, particularly of the mainstream left, have
delighted in reporting on the rise of this erstwhile conservative
Republican bugaboo. Will he be the
next heavy-hitter of the Republican Party?
Will he make the Tea Party heel?
Will he become president, with his no-nonsense, putting-fellow-Republicans-in-their-place
rectitude? We think not.
Within a year,
our guess about his likely darker personality traits as explained in that
same issue became news to the nation.

of this year we said the gender-neutral bathrooms would soon be brought
to our readers, and three months later the issue became a very hot topic at
our own Houston city hall.
We spoke in our
issues of last fall about the declining Obama presidency, and the rise of
dangerous world instability.
Our forecasts of
the outcome of the 2012 presidential debates were very close to the actual
In our June 29,
2013 issue we discussed the rise of hyperbolic rage within the GBLT
movement. On April 3 of this year,
Andrew Sullivan, the father of the gay marriage movement blasted
the GBLT zealots who were ‘hounding heretics’ of the GBLT orthodoxy.
This is a small
sample of our record. We are
successful at this because we do not allow ideology to cloud our mission.
Nor do we value cheap sensationalism, or page clicks and ‘views’ generated
by hyperbolic and inflammatory rhetoric, over making sure we deliver the
most accurate and objective assessments, and making sure every fact we
relay is true. We hope this means
something to you.
But, we do need
the clicks and views. If the above does mean something to you, please help
us out, and share.
Our forecast record cannot be beat. One can follow the herd chasing the
latest hyperbolic, melodramatic, and soon-forgotten micro-trend on Facebook
and Twitter, or one can be wisely and judiciously in front of it with UWFR.
