During the course of my
interviews with Al Bielek, we covered his trips
to the future. In public, he talks about
he and his brother jumping off the USS Eldridge
in 1943 and winding up in the year 1983.
He has never before discussed his two other side
trips - to the year 2137 and the year
I (the producer), was of course
skeptical and saw an opportunity to verify
his experience by revealing what he knew about a
near future event. My interviews with Al
were conducted in August of the year 2000.
I asked Al in August who was
going to win the Presidential election. I
only expected an answer such as Bush or
Gore. What he told me was quite fascinating.
Al responded to my question
initially as "I don't know, I don't think I
ever asked the question". The he
thought for a moment and said "Ok, yes..I
Al then told me that he
remembered Buchanan throwing a monkey wrench
into the election process and neither one of the
two major candidates getting enough electoral
votes to win the election. He said
eventually the election will wind up in the
house and go to George Bush.
He told me all of this in
August! How many of you would have made
that prediction on your own?
As of this posting (12/7/2000),
history may still prove Al wrong. But I
wanted to at least share this with the general
public now. The full interview is in the
2137 discussion on the CD. Al has much
more to discuss about our future.
UPDATE - Well..one could argue
both sides on Al's Presidential
Prediction. While it didn't go the US
House, the Florida House did cast their vote for
Bush - a historical event.
I did speak with Larry James on
this issue. He said that he remembered the vote
going to the US House. However, he also
reminded me that events can be changed. Of
course, that adds fuel for the skeptics.
Either way, Al was very close.
