Nostradamus has been credited with foretelling nearly every major tumultuous historical event in the past 450 years, from epic floods, apocalyptic fires and massacres to the ascension of Napoleon and Adolf Hitler—the latter referred to as “Hister” in his texts; both interpreted to be the first two of three antichrists he foresaw—the world wars, September 11, 2001 terror attacks and destruction of the World Trade Center. A recent analysis of several of Nostradamus’ quatrains has many now believing that the legendary prophet has also indeed predicted billionaire-turned-realty TV personality-turned-U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump’s stunning clenching of the 2016 presidential election—as well as its apocalyptic aftermath.

A lot has changed in less than a month. The former senator from New York and U.S. Secretary of State has built a seemingly commanding lead.

The Long Island Press will be updating, Tweeting, Facebooking all day as the world awaits one of the most anticipated debates in history. According to several reports, this could be the most watched debate in history and rival Super Bowl ratings.
Long Island delegates cheered Hillary Clinton's nomination during the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night. Former President Bill Clinton's speech, in which he weaved together the couple's personal life with his wife's professional accomplishments, was well received.
The reality TV star formally received the presidential nomination when the Republican National Committee, through some creative maneuvering, allowed New York State to pledge its delegates out of order. Donald Trump will formally accept the nomination during a speech on Thursday. Trump's nod fueled supporter celebrations and concerns among some religious and immigration groups.
On Sunday, 50 people were shot in Orlando. And my priorities came into focus. I am a one-issue voter. My issue is guns. My candidate is Hillary. As she stands to accept the nomination as the first woman ever to become the presidential candidate of a major political party in the United States, it occurs to me that Hillary is not just the best candidate despite being a woman, but because she is.
