Conservative commentator Bill Whittle offered his end-of-the-year speculations for what 2016 will likely hold in a video released on Thursday.
The PJ Media personality began by saying that he had made a New Year’s resolution not to make predictions for the next year, but he was willing to speculate on four topics that he believes will be prevalent in 2016.
First, Whittle believes that it is very likely Obama’s bad run as president will only get worse in his final year. The commentator points out that the commander in chief is already on his fourth secretary of defense, as opposed to Reagan and G.W. Bush, who each served two terms and had two SecDef’s, and Clinton, who had three.
Whittle believes the turnover is evidence of the differences Obama has had with the former department heads regarding the policies and strategies he has pursued in the Middle East and beyond.
Further, Whittle says, Obama was reportedly “incandescent” with anger towards FBI Director James Comey after he labeled San Bernardino a terrorist attack without getting the president’s permission first.
Overall, the prognosticator contends that Obama’s “final year is going to reveal to all of the American public, what those of us who studied him for seven years concluded long ago: namely, that he is a thin-skinned, incompetent, lazy and not very bright narcissist who has used the media cloak of invisibility to hover over his own mess for a very, very long time.”
As for Hillary Clinton, Whittle observes that regardless of her mishandling of classified material, she is clearly guilty of retaining and destroying government documents in violation of the law. “Anyone found guilty [of these laws] is prohibited from ever again holding office in the government of the United States,” he says.
Will justice be served? Whittle wonders. Time will tell.
Third, he discusses Donald Trump, who he states gives him whiplash, first saying things that causes him to cheer and in the next breath something that causes him to fear.
Whittle is not sure the billionaire candidate will be able to maintain his lead, as other candidates drop out and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and others rise, but confesses he did not think Trump would stay at the top as long as he has.
The fourth topic the commentator believes will dominate 2016 is security. Whittle thinks more ISIS attacks are inevitable. He also sees China continuing to flex its muscles in the South Pacific and Russia pushing still further to expand its influence in Europe and the Middle East to fill the void left the the United States.
All is not gloom and doom for Whittle though. In SpaceX’s successful launch of its Falcon 9 rocket last week, including the re-landing of its Stage 1 booster back to earth, the conservative finds American ingenuity at its finest. Whittle notes…
