Dr. Zyrmek’s Predictions for 2017

by: Dr. Zyrmek

For those unfamiliar with Dr. Zyrmek, it is computer-based prediction software that takes news and events and generates predictions. The calculations are based on statistical probabilities and cover an enormous range of topics. We have listed only a few that may be most relevant to our readers. These were submitted to us in December 2016. At the end of the year, we’ll see how accurate it was.


Donald Trump will take office as scheduled.

One of his first acts will be to abolish most of the previous administration’s Presidential orders.

The “wall” will be started near San Diego and also in portions of Texas.

Approximately 200,000 “criminal” illegal’s will be found and deported in the first 4 months of Trump’s Presidency.

Trump will ban refugees from Moslem countries defined as terriorist-breeding grounds. Heavy vetting will reduce refugees entering the US to a tiny fraction of today’s level.

Obamacare will be altered slightly, however, several plans will be offered and rejected by Congress.

The Senate will attempt to block Trump’s Supreme Court nominees. After much haggling, they will be confirmed.

The US will see fewer protests.

There will be an increase in the ages (1 year) required for social security and the amount subject to tax will dramatically increased. “Sanctuary cities” will be heavily punished through federal courts and reductions in Federal money. By the end of 2017 only one major city will retain that status.

The Federal government will either begin to enforce marijuana laws or will start discussing the legalization of the drug. No final action will take place in 2017.

Russia and the US will enter a large cooperative agreement.

The US will begin direct bombing of terrorist cells—much heavier than previously done.
