Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey

Has anyone heard about the Ingersoll Lockwood (author) conspiracy theories floating around out there in the wild, wild web?

I guess it’s been out there since 2016, but I just heard about it.

So you know I went chasing.

If you don’t know what I am talking about read on, it’s quite interesting.

So in the late 1800’s the new York born author Ingersoll Lockwood wrote three books that at the time were not very popular (for reasons we will get into in a moment), but gained internet stardom over 100 years later thanks to our current President. I doubt anyone would have called it a trilogy back when they were written. The first 2 were children’s books and both had the same main character: Baron Trump. The third was not a children’s book and is described on Amazon as follows:

This little booklet was penned at the end of the 19th century, and ostensibly involves events mere years later. A work of political satire, it chastises the rise of socialism and populism, inferring their fictional rise here as disastrous and leading to chaos. It is of note here that this work, along with others by Lockwood, appear to prognosticate the current political climate of the United States and West at large- and for an apparent religious Catholic of his era, it is not altogether impossible that Lockwood- wittingly or unwittingly- tapped into some mystic forces. Regardless, it is an interesting little political story from its time and is reflective of some of the social ideologies and movements of the age

It seems this third book called 1900 or The Last President was about an unpopular President (from New York) who the people of America rise up against in destructive riots. Wait are we sure this isn’t a trilogy?

The first 2 books are children’s books sort of along the lines of Alice In Wonderland. Which from what I have read is why the 2 books were not very popular when they came out. You can’t compete with the best.

Here is a description of the Baron books:

In the 1890s, Ingersoll Lockwood authored a series of children’s books about the escapades of his character, the young Baron Trump: Travels and Adventures of Little Baron Trump and his Wonderful Dog Bulger, and Baron Trump’s Marvellous Underground Journey. The series followed a literary trend of the time, which had child protagonists adventuring to enchanted lands and encountering fantastic beings. Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, and L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz are two famous examples of this genre.

Lockwood’s Baron is an aristocratic youth bored with his life of luxury in Castle Trump. Searching for adventure, Baron travels to Russia to discover an underground world beneath his feet. He journeys downward and finds himself lost in peculiar settings surrounded by the strange inhabitants of this new world. The stories follow his adventures and eventual struggle to find his way back to the surface he left behind.

And here is some more from Amazon describing all 3 books:

The Last President (or 1900), is a novel by Ingersoll Lockwood, written over a century ago. It became an instant best seller this year, when people began to notice that his author has also written two novels about “Baron Trump”, novels that recount the adventures of the German boy Wilhelm Heinrich Sebastian Von Troomp, who goes by “Baron Trump”, as he discovers weird underground civilizations, offends the natives, flees from his entanglements with local women, and repeats this pattern until arriving back home at Castle Trump. Chris Riotta noted in Newsweek that Baron Trump’s adventures begin in Russia, and also mentioned The Last President, in which the president’s home city of New York is riven by protests against a rigged presidential election. So, Ingersoll wrote about a president from New York, and about a boy named Baron Trump who has a castle in New York’s fifth avenue… Over a century ago. Extremely interesting books that make us wonder if that something that we call prophecies somehow really exists…

I find this all so interesting.

Of course the internet has run hard and fast with all this, some wondering if Donald Trump has a time machine.

That is ridicules… right?

Just because the first 2 books have a character called Baron Trump which seems to fit into the third story of a President literally bringing on the destruction of America?

That’s enough for me. LOL. Seriously though, there other similarities. Just be careful chasing the internet for them, because there are a lot of made up similarities as well. You know how it works.

If it wasn’t for the name Baron Trump though I doubt these books would have come up at all. And although it does sound like the name of the President’s son I should point out it is not. Baron is a title, not a name. The character in the 2 children’s stories is a Baron, therefore he is Baron Trump. So this could just be a coincidence (the dreaded “c” word) or maybe someone had read the book and Barron is named after the Baron.  Not our President of course, everyone knows he doesn’t read. But maybe Melina. Or maybe someone had brought the story up to President Trump because of his family name being in the stories. Maybe, maybe not. my point is I find most of the connections stem from the character of the children’s book being named called Baron Trump and since that connection is not so mysteriously, impossible as at first glance, the rest don’t really add up to time machine either.

The whole thing reminds me of the Lincoln/Kennedy conspiracy. Remember that? I was just a kid (no internet) when I first heard about that. Freaked me out. I could never get my head around such coincidences.  That could be where I first started having issues with that word.

Luckily today we have the internet and we can seek out the truth of such fantastic legends:

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/linkin-kennedy/

It is the internet though. LOL!

We can do the same with the Ingersoll Lockwood trilogy (heh, heh):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baron_Trump_novels

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/baron-trumps-marvelous-underground-journey/

Alright I feel better. Just coincidences.

Actually that don’t make anything better. Coincidences are a fucker.

Anyways, what ever you make of the weird connections made with The Donald and these 3 books, one thing is sure, it saved these old books from an inconsequential existence:

The Baron Trump novels were obscured by the more successful children’s books of the time. Lockwood’s tall tales seemed destined for the literary dust bin, but the election of Donald Trump in 2016 renewed interest in these works due to the President’s youngest son’s name: Barron Trump. Now, back in print, the Baron Trump series is enjoying considerable interest and success.

Interesting, right?

I might have to read these books myself, just to be sure.

Before We Go On

This blog is very organic… I blog about what ever is on my mind (that is not always easy to decipher since so much is on my mind lately), what ever is going on in my life, my blogs, and the world in which we all live. It can jump around or get very fixated. It can even go silent when I come to an empty page and decide once again not to write anything. That doesn’t mean I don’t come to it, don’t deal with emails and private messages about it, or not chase the internet on subjects I should be writing about. It’s just when I come to the actual part of putting it all into words lately, I’m already exhausted and just can’t bring myself to separate my thoughts on one idea long enough to type them down.

This has happened before… so much going on around me that I just need a break from the blog… maybe even the internet… the thing is this time I had a break, my haunt season break, I should be ready to go and I am… but there is just so much going on and I have so many different ideas about what I need to blog about (a big part of me feels this blog is slowly becoming another “Red & Black” Prophet Blog, and I have mixed feelings about that. I stopped that blog with good reasons, and going back to it may not even be possible after the places we have gone since then) and posts are getting left in the “Post Graveyard” or worse yet, left in my head to be forgotten or resurfaced depending on this organic blog.

This blog centers around 3 things most of the time… my personal life and it’s experiences, the internet and how it affects that personal life (both of these deal with the world around us, such as the Arts, Politics, and Religion and how they affect the personal and internet life and how the personal and internet life affect them), and third the crazies I have encountered while blogging about the first 2. I try to stay balanced, but sometimes we get stuck. Which is ok, but I don’t like getting stuck on nothing, and that is where I am.

It’s not hard to understand why I’m stuck. I just spent a lot of time away from the blog. And as most of you know I spent most of my free time over the last few months with one of the top haunts in the world: FRIGHT DOME! (shameless plug, but it’s true) I had totally planned on blogging about this season a little more and not staying away for so long. And this season was full of ups and downs that would have been great to blog about and many posts were in my head ready to write down. But whenever I decide to start a personal blog I have to think about that third thing I mentioned above. The crazies I have blogged about like to use all that personal stuff to whatever craziness they can come up with in their crazy heads. Most of you will remember the private messages between Kate and Dorothy that I posted about a year ago (remember the super bowl party?), but there was much more to that conversation. At one point Dorothy writes about how she looks at all the Facebook’s of people connected to zero (me), mostly haunt people or people into haunts. She calls them devil worshipers and even says something about someone’s wife… something about their looks, as in they were not pretty. Shallow stuff we come to know from the Dorothy team, but we also know these nuts are dangerous with the things they say, so after seeing first hand how Dorothy looks into people around me, and not knowing how many crazy people she talks to, nor how many of these crazies and the other crazies we know are discussing my personal information and people who may or may not know me, I have to pause and think real hard if I even want to make a post discussing friends, family, and personal experiences.

So yes, I wanted to blog about the things that happened this season. I broke my foot, the cast of Big Brother came through, the 13th season had so much triumph and turbulence, I was excited about telling some of the stories. But each time I’d think about Dorothy and that ever-growing nut gallery and wonder if I should put so much personal stuff out there, I mean there’s already enough and there’s always some new nut and I’m bound to write something they won’t like and, well as much as I want to write about my haunt season, I just keep deciding to put each post off till it’s already the middle of November and I really should just move on.

Some may say, hey that’s not fair, you don’t mind posting about these crazy people, but won’t put your own personal stories up. Good argument if it were true. But it’s not. I post all sorts of personal posts. I’m not afraid for people to know my stuff, it’s just the people around me who have no idea what is going on in this blog or who these crazies even are that I second guess my posts for. And plus like I’ve said before, the stuff I post about is usually already out there or what people have been putting out there for years. But some people will never see it that way and therefore I post less and less personal stuff. So I guess no haunt stories. Maybe another time.

Though I have to say this about the haunts I have worked for, and this goes out to Dorothy, Cristin, and anyone else who has a misconception of people who work at haunts. Yes, most are into Halloween and/or horror movies, that’s a given. But you might want to think twice before you judge them. Half of them are newly highschool graduates starting college or heading out into the world for the first time, and the haunt is their first job experience. There are also quite a bit of school teachers and veterans. People living with disabilities and those who have survived cancer, yea I have worked with a lot of cancer survivors over the years, whose stories of survival would humble most reading here (crazies with the victim psychosis not included). I’ve been doing Fright Dome since 2007 and I have had the pleasure to work with some truly amazing people, so while I am protective of not mentioning it at all so the likes of Dot and Nan Nan don’t do their evil on good people, I have to point out that they are good people, whose shoes you have not walked in. (SHOES! Dropping, walking, the shoes are there, red ones and all!)

Another catch 22… or contradicting riddle. Don’t want to talk about my personal life as to not give the crazies things to distort and yet the need to correct any distortions. Such is life, both the real one and the internet one.

Before we leave the subject of the haunt, I need to post a couple of pictures of my new characters this season:

patient zero2b Patient Zero

zero da klown1 Zero Da Klown

Some more of that #WorldsCollide with zero’s world making its way further into the haunt world… but here is where we must leave it for now… the haunt is over.

Fine, easy enough, skip all of that. There was plenty of things going on in the world around us that I had no problem coming up with what to blog about. And after the tragic events in Paris on Friday the 13th my television has been on the news night and day and there has been so many things to blog about such as terrorism in general and how it is affecting us. When does crazy become evil? Will our government lost in politics and the upcoming presidential election lead us into the eye of that craziness and  a “Holy War”? Are we now making decisions out of fear? Are refugees and others coming into our country dangerous? Should there be a coalition with Russia? Do we need troops on the ground? Should POTUS just say the words “Islamic Extremist”? When did The President Of The United States become POTUS?”

Discussion is good and we do need it. But real change in all these maters are no where in sight. Politics, Religion and the quest for land and power is a greedy trip that is way too imbedded into what we are. All we can really do is say thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and hope someday it wont be like this. And I have that hope. But I don’t see that journey all sunny days and lemon aide.

So blogging about it does bring me down a little I guess, and I tend to back out of such posts. After all I don’t have the answers needed to such topics.

Still as I said, discussion is needed and I’m sure there will be much more discussed here, on this blog, on all of this. After all we are going into a presidential election year.

Before we move on there is one part of the sad world of current events that I don’t want to skip over and loose it forever.

That is the subject of Anonymous getting involved with ISIL, or if your politics prefer ISIS:

http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2015/11/16/anonymous-declares-war-on-isis-vows-cyberattacks.html

http://nypost.com/2015/11/16/anonymous-declares-war-on-isis/

When I first saw this on the news I went searching the web.

I was really wanting to quickly post about it. I have a tendency to let Anonymous related posts get unfinished. This is mainly because I just don’t know what they do half the time. I’ve said before, I want to believe in them, that what they do helps, but I can’t help but wonder, do they make things better or worse?

And before I could post about them getting involved, that question was again raised in things that followed.

First Anonymous seemed to live up to their word helping by exposing and having deleted, ISIL/ISIS Twitter accounts:

http://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/260418-anonymous-claims-it-has-elimiated-5500-isis-twitter-accounts

That’s good, but then this happened:

http://www.albawabaeg.com/69268

http://twitchy.com/2015/11/21/anonymous-warns-that-isis-is-planning-attacks-practically-worldwide-sunday/

It seems Anonymous has discovered where ISIL/ISIS will attack next and reported it to the worlds leaders and governments, but don’t feel, they (leaders and governments) are doing anything about it so, they (Anonymous) had to make these targets known to the world via the internet.

That day is today, Sunday, November 22, 2015, and they put up quite a bit of targets.

Before we can even discus if this is the right thing to do or if it helps spread more fear. Before we can ask what our leaders and governments should be doing to check on these and other recently posted fear propaganda declaring more attacks are coming. You get this:

anonymous twitter

You might have seen this in the above posts… yep, Anonymous denies the earlier Anonymous tweets. That’s the problem when any one in a Guy Fawkes mask can be Anonymous, and I believe I have said this before.

So do they hurt or help? Whoa, how did I get here? Not where I was heading and I probably shouldn’t be poking at the vast Anonymous army of delinquents right now. But before I can even finish any thoughts on Anonymous’ affect in the fight against ISIL/ISIS something new comes into the picture:

GSG tweet

Wait, who is Ghost Security Group?

Well, I went searching/chasing the internet last night and today and it seems there is a new group in town:

http://www.inquisitr.com/2575774/anonymous-upstaged-by-ghost-security-group-in-cyber-war-against-isis/

http://money.cnn.com/2015/11/20/technology/isis-ghost-security-group/index.html

Wow, Anonymous Vs. Ghost Security Group… sounds like a long forgotten post of mine called Anonymous Vs. The Illuminati. This was after the Malaysian Airlines MH370 crash/disappearance and I had come across this on YouTube:

Here’s some other links from that lost post:

http://www.fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/anonymous-rothschilds-malaysian-airlines-mh370-connection/90611

https://www.hackread.com/anonymous-video-malaysian-airliner-mh-370/

http://illuminatiwatcher.com/malaysia-airlines-flight-mh17-conspiracy-theories/

That last one is a doozy!

I never finished the post, because as usual, I didn’t see anything come of what Anonymous was proposing. Still asking, do they help or hurt?

But my questions about groups like The Illuminati, Anonymous, CICADA 3310, and now a new one for me, Ghost Security Group are matched with my hopes one of them is the super hero they claim to be… man, we could use a super hero right now. Plenty of people ready to step up and try to be the villains, we know that.

I will be keeping my eye on this Ghost Security Group, a smaller Anonymous, with more purpose than CICADA, and not fake like The Illuminati… yes, I’m intrigued once again.

Well, we can check off

#2016PresidentialElectionCoverageAndOtherPoliticalStuffThatNeedsToBeDiscussed

as well.

That’s both this years hashtags in one post. Good, gotta get them in there as much as possible, the year is almost over and other hashtags await.

And that’s where we will leave the Politics and Religion darkening the world as we speak. Too much conflicting ideas there, all waiting to contradict. Some of you know there are C words I have a problem with… and some I don’t…

Which brings us back to that third thing… the crazies… (were you thinking of another c word?) Yes, if I am to escape the craziness of the world for the moment, what better place than the crazies that  keep me from more personal posts? They are still out there, and a few new ones have crept into the comments and emails lately. I’ve stayed away long enough, no?

Let’s get started!

What’s Going On In The World Today?

Three weeks ago I was listening to D12 World and this song came on. I started to think about everything that was going on in our world and decided to write a post about a few things.

Ferguson would have been the main subject I’m sure… but it also would have dealt with ISIS and what’s going on in Syria… as well as what’s going on (and has been for years) in Israel and Palatine. And would have ended on the Russia and Ukraine conflict.

I had the outline in my head but never got started on the post… it seemed like too much to deal with at the time. Not much has changed in 3 weeks and it still seems like too much to deal with at this time.

Plus… my opinions on the middle east are not different from most people , I’m sure. And those whose opinions differ are only because they have a side in it for some reason.

ISIS and terrorist groups or wanna be states are a danger to EVERYONE in the world. Islam is not the enemy, anymore than Christianity or any other religion that thinks their God is the TRUE God. But ALL of the worlds religions will have to deal with that LIE long before anything in Middle East will get better…

The Middle East has been the battle ground for all three major religions for a long time… I mean of course… Judaism, Christianity, and Islamic faiths. The wars have been never ending countless generations. Which sucks for those who live in the Middle East. All three religions think  their book is word of our creator. Since all three religions are based on each other and their stories are borrowed from much older civilizations it’s easy for people to get lost in the true teachings at the heart of each religion, which are all the same… instead confusion and chaos and Religious Wars in the Middle East for hundreds of years.

Add to that how many within their own religions interpret their stories differently… more craziness. And this craziness is world-wide!

Of course Politics has it’s part in it all as well. In fact Politics and Religion are a much closer entity then most want to admit, right?

But what point is it to have one more blogger weigh in on something so imbedded in our lives that the obvious answers are impossible for us to deal with.

Do you need me to say Israel and Palestine are stuck in a deadly back-n-forth where neither side is right and outside influences are using the lives of innocent people for their politics and religion? Hundreds of years stacked up on any type of reasoning that any one blogger could attempt.

Though I do want to say before I leave the subject that Russia needs to get it together. You can be a big influence in where this world goes. Why take steps backwards after so much progress? Like my questions mater… I know… it’s why I never did the post.

But then the other day a reader wrote me that they had been reading my blog lately to see if I would post about what’s been going on in Ferguson. I told them I had planned on it, but as I just explained above it didn’t happen.

Still… it was nice to know that some want to read my opinions on something more than Dorothy and other psychotic hypo-crites. (that’s totally a joke, I know lots of the readers would love for me to blog about anything other than the erratic babblings of crazy internet trolls disguised as victims, and I know that some of you appreciate my opinions as I have come to appreciate a lot of yours, but, although it’s just a joke, I still get highest readings when I write about one of the LISK gang, so funny, but true)

And I do feel the need to write about Ferguson and all that goes with it. So a post has been started and should be up soon (don’t quote me on that, as soon as it is finished is more accurate, cause it may take a few days).

There’s a lot going on out there… but it’s not as complicated as we tend to make it… yet it is very complicated because of the way we’ve made it.
