Reality Check: Trump’s First Week

trump hitler

REALITY CHECK TIME. Let’s take a look at what trump has done just in his first week in office:

Inauguration Day, Jan 20

He signed an executive order to “ease the burden of Obamacare,” the first step in the repeal of Obama’s signature health care mandate.

Big problem: the Republicans have nothing to replace it, so that means 20 million people lose their health insurance and things probably go back to the way they were – sky high premiums, if you have a pre-existing condition, well, sorry, we can’t cover you.

Weekend, Jan. 21 and Jan. 22

Millions of women and men worldwide took the streets for the Women’s March.

Alternative facts” became the buzzword when trump’s people( Keyllanne Conway) said the media downplayed the numbers at his inauguration. Trump even called the head of the National Park Service about finding aerial  photos that proved his inauguration crowd was larger than Obama’s.

Real fact: His crowd fell way short of Obama’s. It hurt trump’s ego.

Monday, Jan. 23

Good-bye TPP –from the platform of Bernie Sanders

Reinstated a gag order on government support for internaitonal aid groups that discuss and perform abortions. These aid groups also give advice on family planning and birth control.

This is, of course, a no-no in the trump/pense admin. For them, the unborn – an embryo – must be defended. But hey, once you’re born, kid, you’re on your own. No health care (unless your framily can afford it), no preschool, no childcare – unless your family can afford it. Yes, you love life until it actually becomes a living human being.

Build the wall and oh, sorry, but Mexico isn’t going to pay for it. You taxpayers are – not the wealthy, who are getting tax breaks, and not corporations, who are also getting more tax breaks, but you middle class chumps.

Withhold money for sanctuary cities.

Tuesday, January 24

For the EPA – Environmental Protection Agency – a freeze on all new contracts and grants.

Media blackout at the EPA and Department of Agriculture. You know, the agencies that are responsible for the air you breathe, the food you eat, the ones who provide data about CLIMATE CHANGE, that phrase that trump and his people claim is a hoax made up by the Chinese.

Defund International Planned Parenthood which provides family planning services, contraception, and women’s health care around the world. And yes, they provide abortions, too. That’s about three percent of what they do.

Wednesday, Jan. 25

Trump’s ego needs to be fed, so today he ordered a major investigation into voter fraud. I mean, how did Clinton win the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes? It had to be VOTER FRAUD. But nothing about the Russian computer hacking.

But, in the voter fraud realm, several members of trump’s team were registered to vote in two states!

Trump gives his first prime-time interview as prez.

Thursday, Jan. 26

Trump proposes 20% import tax on Mexican imports. Mexico is our third largest trading partner. The only thing this tax does is raise the price of foods and goods for American consumers.

He also apparently thinks torture like waterboarding works and said he was in favor of bringing it back, along with black op prisons. He then supposedly deferred to his secretary of defense, who’s opposed to it.

The heated rhetoric between trump and the president of Mexico ratcheted upward.

Friday, Jan. 27

Trump creates chaos at American airports when he signs an executive order that blocks all refugees from entering the U.S. for 120 days and added travel restrictions from Muslim countries – none of which have been responsible for terrorist acts in the U.S. since 9/11

This order caused unimagined chaos at airports, protests, and opened the door for mass deportations. A federal judge banned parts of it.

Oh – this too. On Inauguration day, four journalists covering the protests were arrested on federal riot charges – even though they weren’t involved in the riots – and that carries a ten year prison sentence and a fine of $25,000.

In short, trump’s first week in office has taken the U.S. several steps closer to Fascism.

Re-read 1984.

Follow Robert Reich’s nightly live feed on Facebook.

Stay abreast of real news.

And if a Muslim registry is started, sign up.

If your beliefs are in line with everything trump is doing, then own them without resorting to “the bible says…” Or “god says…” Don’t use god as an excuse for your own hatred, racism, bigotry, misogyny, homophobia.

The Poughkeepsie Seer


This is an old blog entry from 2011 that I posted when I was writing BUMP IN THE NIGHT. Somehow, the story never made it into the book, but I just came across it while preparing for a radio show that was to focus on that book. Just as the story didn’t make it into the book, the radio show didn’t happen either! But here’s the story. It’s an interesting one that says a lot about the mystery of spirit contact.

If you know much about American history, you’ve no doubt heard about Andrew Jackson, the fourteenth president. But you’ve probably never heard about American mystic named Andrew Jackson Davis. So here’s a history lesson from the mystical underground.

In  1844, at the age of 18, a shoemaker named Andrew Jackson Davis went into a state of semi-trance and wandered from his home in Poughkeepsie, New York. The next morning he found himself forty miles away in the mountains where he claimed he encountered the spirits of Swedish philosopher and mystic Emmanuel Swedenborg and the second-century Greek physician Claudius Gale.  He came away from the experience claiming he was mentally illuminated. Even though he never attended school, he began teaching and writing about supernatural powers, which he called human magnetism and electricity.

Davis, who became known as the Poughkeepsie Seer, also exhibited these powers. In 1845, he began to dictate, while in trance, a book entitled The Principles of NatureIn the book, Davis made the following prediction regarding a new era of communication with the other side.

“It is a truth that spirits commune with one another while one is in the body and the other in the higher spheres—and this, too, when the person in the body is unconscious of the influx, and hence cannot be convinced of the fact; and this truth will ere long present itself in the form of a living demonstration. And the world will hail with delight the ushering in of that era when the interiors of men will be opened, and the spiritual communion will be established…”

In Davis’ notes, dated March 31, 1848, are the following words: “About daylight this morning a warm breathing passed over my face and I heard a voice, tender and strong, saying: ‘Brother, the good work has begun—behold a living demonstration is born.’ I was left wondering what could be meant by such a message.”

It wasn’t long before he realized the meaning of the message. March 31, 1848 was the day that  Maggie Fox and her two sisters established a means of communicating with the others side, which gave birth to Spiritualism, a movement that flourished in the waning decades of the Victorian Era.  Davis had experienced a synchronicity through his contact with the other side.

While synchronicity doesn’t always involve spirit contact, it can serve as connective tissue between the everyday world and the other side, the world of spirit. The more contact we make, the more the so-called ‘dead’ appear to be quite alive and willing to communicate.

Inside Trump’s Mind

QVC Red Carpet Style Party

QVC Red Carpet Style Party

We’ve asked 3 ‘special forces’ psychic spies to remote view Donald Trump’s mind. Here’s a collection of results as  they tuned into POTUS’s  thoughts.

We don’t need alternative energy when we’ve got alternative facts.

Lots of nasty women were out on that march after my inauguration. There was not a 10 among them.

It’s okay if Melanie wears that $1,000 Gucci pussy bow blouse a second time before giving to one of her maids. But I would hate to see her model one of those pussy hats.

Kellyanne…Kellyanne…Kellyanne. Hugs and kisses…and more for Kellyanne.

I’m sure everyone will love my wall, except for the 11 million illegals I’m going to put on the other side. Somehow – and I’m going to find out how – nearly half of them voted for Hillary and skewed and screwed the popular vote results of  my great election.

If we don’t get this widespread voter fraud problem under control by next year, I may issue an executive order to suspend the 2018 election. We just can’t trust the results any longer. And we certainly don’t want to lose control of Congress. Hundreds of thousands – no millions – of illegals will vote for Dems and destroy our democracy.


Good going, remote viewers. Your IDs are protected. Even though it’s difficult to say that these are actual thoughts coming from Trump’s conscious mind, they seem to fit the reality of everyday events emerging from the presidency. And thanks to Melania for modeling  the pussy hat! And a friend for providing the evidence!

Golden Retriever to the Rescue


Noah and Nika – Noah the Golden

This post grew out of another on creativity and precognition, about how people who work in artistic fields often tap into the future through their works. It comes from writer and novelist Randy Russell. He wrote Ghost Dogs of the South as well as a number of other books on ghosts and several novels. Look him up on Amazon. I suspect Randy is one of those people who’s a magnet for synchronicities, spirit communication and other things that go bump in the night.

In an exchange of emails verifying an experience he had, he related an intriguing true story that he collected for Ghost Dogs of the South. He couldn’t use it, though, because it didn’t happen in the South!

Four teenagers, two girls who were best friends and their boyfriends, seniors in high school, sneaked out to go rafting on the Colorado River. The rapids turned bad and swept them away, down a portion of the river where rafting wasn’t allowed. They fell out of the raft, which was either swept away or destroyed.

They ended up stranded on the river sandbar island with no way off. Not only was it near dark, it was also getting cold. “The boys decided to become heroes and braved crossing the river rapids to seek help. They probably didn’t give a thought to the fact that they were leaving the two girls abandoned on that sand island, overnight,” Randy wrote. “The two girls were left shivering on the sand bar island in their bikinis. Kids, you know. The two girls huddled. It was the best they could do. Then one girl’s Golden Retriever shows up.”

The dog was alive, actually at home, so the girl just kept staring at the dog, trying to figure out how it had gotten to the sandbar. Then the dog started digging in the sand in front of them and got down into the hole – and vanished. The teenagers caught on. The girls dug holes in the sand, climbed in, and covered themselves with sand in order to keep warm and survive the night.

“They were rescued by helicopter the next morning. And now I don’t remember who told me of this occurrence. She was also a writer, btw.  Hey, it wasn’t you, was it?”

Nope, the story didn’t come from me! What I find especially interesting about it is that the girl’s Golden Retriever, a breed known for loyalty to the people it loves, sensed she was in trouble and was able to materialize in front of her to show her what she should do. Was the dog out of body? How was it able to project an image of itself that could dig a hole in the sand so that the girls would understand how to survive the night?

Randy wrote, “I like to think the dog sensed their discomfort ~ danger. As a close family member might in general sense a family member in stress miles and miles and miles away. Dogs’ ability to respond to spiritual influences is more sensitive than our own ability to do so.  Kind of like their sense of smell is so much better than ours.”

The Female Archetype, Rising

Depending on which news sources you read about the Women’s March, it appears that many of these marches had a turnout that blew apart expectations: 500,000 in D.C., 400,000 in NYC, 500,000 in L.A, 250,000 in Chicago, 90,000 in Minneapolis, and thousands more in more than 300 cities across the U.S. and in numerous foreign countries. Think about this for a moment. Trumps’ inauguration drew under a million. Just the numbers in these four cities blow his numbers out of the water.

What we may be seeing here is the rise of the feminine archetype.

Trump and the racist, mysoginist billionaires and millionaires in his cabinet seem to think that they will be able to shove women back into the 1950s, rob Afro-Americans and minorities of their rights to vote and to do anything else guaranteed under the Bill of Rights. They seem to believe they can do this because, after all, he is THE DONALD, the king of reality TV who spins facts to suit his version of reality. He has those who aid and abet him in this surreal world we’ve entered – Kellyanne Conway as one of the worst.

It’s beyond me to understand how any woman, of any ethnicity, religion, or political belief, can support a man who denigrates women and minorities at every opportunity. And how can a woman who has daughters support this guy? Each day will bring a new revelation about what will be DEFUNDED. Planned Parenthood, the Affordable Care Act, the National Foundation of the Arts, regulations on emissions. That’s just for starters.

Rob and I attended a rally in West Palm Beach with our friends Dwane, Rose, and Estis. The organizers were hoping for 1600. More like 5,000 showed up and many of them carried signs.



Some of the others moved past too quickly for me to photograph:

Now you’ve pissed off a grandmother.

Keep your small hands off my tits.

The best I saw was too far away to photograph. It read: OBAMACARED.

The White House is now occupied by a man so crass, so narcissistic,  that when you put him up next to the class act of Obama, he’s the lone clown dancing on top of a train wreck tweeting his foreign policies and his attacks on the media and everyone else in 140 characters or less. His every action screams, Hey, pay attention to me, I’m the best, the greatest…

Sure. And we’re watching you,we women are. We know what you are. We know you hope to take us back to the days of Leave it to Beaver and The Donna Reed Show. We know you hope to take us back to the days of abortions in dark alleys, of no contraception, of robbing us of the decisions to govern our own bodies. We know you hope to silence us, to bring us to some more perverted version of The Handmaid’s Tale,  The Hunger Games, On the Beach, or to a  Dystopian reality that no storyteller has conceived of yet.

But understand this: you have awakened the female archetype, that collective something in us that refuses to submit, become submissive, to draw back into the shadows. And when this archetype rises,  dudes like you don’t stand a chance.

Dreamland with Whitley Strieber


About a week ago, we were on Dreamland with Whitley Strieber to talk about Sensing the Future. It’s always a pleasure talking to him and this interview was particularly enlightening.

Whitley kindly introduces us this way: “Trish and Rob MacGregor are frequent and eagerly anticipated guest on Dreamland and they’re back with Sensing the Future: How to Tap In Your Intuition and Read Signs from the Universe to Predict What’s to Come.

“In the first half of the show they offer some new explanations about precognition and how to see the future in ways that actually work, but the second half is where it really gets eerie when Whitley brings out his personal dream book and begins discussing his recurrent dreams of a mind-boggling inundation.”

You can listen here.

Trump Trackdown

Here’s a fascinating prediction of the coming of Trump from an episode of a 1958 Western called Trackdown. In this episode, a snake-oil salesman named Trump talks about building a wall to save everyone.

When I saw this four-minute clip, I figured the name ‘Trump’ was a voice-over. But I was surprised when I went to and found out it’s legit – the character who was going to build the wall was really named Trump. It’s an example of  synchronicity and precognition through the creative process.

My Way


The song for the first inaugural dance Friday evening featuring President Trump and Melania: My Way, by Frank Sinatra.The title seems appropriate for Trump’s style of leadership. However, take a look at the first  line of that song: ‘And now the end is near.’ Nancy Sinatra pointed out the apocalyptic lyric here.

Marches on January 21

women's march

Are you headed to one of the women’s marches all over the country on January 21? Men are welcome, too!

We’ll be at Trump Plaza in downtown West Palm Beach on Saturday. And no, contrary to what some fake news sites are reporting, these marchers aren’t being paid $2,500 to do this. Or if they are, we don’t know about it. No one has offered us a check for five grand.

Here’s Trump Plaza:


See you there!

A Lucid dream or OOBE?


Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish between an out of body experience and a lucid dream. Usually, the distinguishing factor is that the dreamer is aware of leaving the body and can look back and see his or her sleeping self, but feel consciously awake and separate. A lucid dream creates the same ‘wakefulness’ and allows the dreamer to control events in the dream. But that dream scenario is usually far different from the waking world, whereas someone who is out of body typically experiences what appears to be the normal familiar settings…unless he or she soars off into the cosmos.

Dale Dassel recently sent me what he called a lucid dream, but it seemed very similar to an OOBE to me.

For background, Dale and his father had just returned home to Georgia from a trip to east Texas when Dale had the dream. They’d been looking for a house near where they lived for 16 years in the Jefferson/Longview area of east Texas. As they headed  home, Dale made a detour to take a look at their old family home in a wooded neighborhood. He thinks the visit to the house was a catalyst for the dream.

“I was standing at the top of the driveway (the house is on a hill), where the concrete pad slopes down towards side yard. Instead of the hedgerow bushes (as seen in the photo), the edge of the concrete was bordered by a wood-textured fence painted in glossy beige paint. That was obviously a dream element, because such a fence has never existed there in real life. I walked over to it, then reached out both hands (fingers wide) and touched the fence. And I could really feel it! I could feel the nubbled surface and thick paint.

“Then I suddenly realized that I was in one of those dreams – where I could explore at will, do anything. The ultimate virtual reality. The imagery was vibrant and ultra-clear. In my excitement I tried to turn around to look at the house, but I moved too fast and I lost my focus on the world. Everything flared ultra-bright white, like looking directly at the sun, and I felt myself momentarily detach.

“I struggled to maintain my hold on the dream, and the scene quickly re-materialized. I turned around and looked across the driveway at the house. The car port wasn’t there, and I saw the outer screen door side entry (the back door), right beside the brick chimney.  Everything looked exactly like it did when we lived there! The sun was shining and the sky was beautiful blue. It was late dawn, probably about 9:30 in the morning. 

“A tremendous wave of elation overcame me and I rushed towards the house, opened the door, and stepped inside to the kitchen. The wood-paneled walls, cabinets, bar, wall decor were all exactly like it was before, but it was a blur because I saw the familiar figure of Mom sitting in the chair at the kitchen table. She stood up and turned as I came approached. She was beautiful, younger and cancer-free. 

“My heart soared with joy. She smiled at me, and I threw my arms around her in a loving embrace. I think I was crying, but the experience was so powerful that I can’t remember now. But I could feel her – the familiar shape of her body, just as real as touching my own hand right now. It was wonderful – pure elation – the strongest emotion possible. It was so moving and powerful that the dream dissolved and I felt my body as I lay in bed, warmly tucked under the covers.”

Having had only one other lucid dream (in March 2013), I can verify that it was the exact same sensation – I could feel my physical body lying in bed, numb and tingly, vibrating on some low frequency, while my consciousness was ultra-vivid and clear. The dream imagery was incredibly bright and vibrant, like an over-saturated photo exposure, and I could literally, physically feel whatever I touched. It was unbelievably real.


Dale is convinced it was a lucid dream, because the house is no longer exactly like it was when he lived there. Yet, he also could’ve been out of body and visiting his deceased mother in an after-death reality where she lives or visits a house that is exactly like the one where they’d lived. Would a lucid dream be any less real? When you move into alternate realities, it seems the distinction between those two states blurs.

Two dogs named Tome


Here’s a startling dog synchro that comes from Connie Cannon.

“Yesterday I was watching Law & Order from 2pm to 3pm. In that episode, there was a suspect whose mother owned a dog named “Tome,” pronounced “to Me”. I have never heard of that name or word except that my friend Ron has an Australian Shepherd whom he named TUME, pronounced the same way. As I watched the show and heard the TV dog’s name several times, of course I thought of Ron and his TUME. She was his constant companion, accompanying him everywhere he went, and especially on his big boat.
“Ron called me a little while ago. He was planning to come by and visit with me but I’m too unstable today, so he drove on back to Orlando and phoned me from the vehicle. He told me that his TUME had transitioned. She was 14 and had been very ill. He had her all her life and even though he knew for awhile that she had little time, he was of course devastated.
“He had her cremated, and brought her ashes up here yesterday, took her ashes to her favorite spot on the waterway, and a friend gave a beautiful eulogy and they spread Tume’s ashes across her favorite water place. IT WAS AT 2:30 pm, exactly the time I was watching the TV show that had the pup named To-me in it.
“It wouldn’t be so astonishing if the name wasn’t so unusual. But how many times have you heard of a dog or pet named TO-ME or TUME???
That is an odd name for a dog. We once had a blogger who visited us regularly and called herself Toumai….as in Two May. Her name was May and she thought she had another May, an invisible double, living inside her. In other words, two me’s.

Fire Synchros



On January 9, I was fixing myself a turkey burger. A large lid covered the smaller pan where the burger was cooking away in olive oil. Rob and I were talking about our appearance that night on Coast to Coast and I was also telling him that the person for whom I’m ghostwriting a book was getting fired up about it.

Suddenly, flames shot up from the frying pan, tall flames. Unlike what you see at a steakhouse, these flames were NOT controlled or deliberate. The smoke alarm shrieked and I grabbed the pan’s handle, tossed it in the sink, turned on the water. Neither of us got hurt, it was just startling.

Rob and I just looked at each other. “Wow, what’s that mean?” I exclaimed.

“What were we talking about?”

“Coast to Coast and the ghostwriting project – how the client is getting psyched.”

In this instance, it seems that our conversation was symbolically manifested in physical reality.

Later that evening, we both napped for awhile before Coast to Coast, where we were scheduled to appear from 3-5 am. I finally got up at 11, unable to sleep, and as I went into my office, the large floor lamp went out. It’s been acting up lately and getting a new lamp has been on my list of stuff to do.

I changed the bulb and suddenly there was a tremendous popping sound and flames shot up through the inside of the lamp. Fortunately, they were contained within the metal pole and visible only where the pole connected to the glass lampshade. I blew out the flames and quickly unplugged the lamp and took it out of my office.

So that’s two fires within less than twelve hours. No injuries, just surprise! I know what the first fire meant. But I’m clueless about the second one. Except. During the Coast to Coast show, George Noory asked what our next book was and suggest one on telekinesis. Ah, I thought. A firestarter!

Today, January 11, I went out and bought a new lamp.
