NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – The Philippines and the United States — both are having their presidential elections this year in May and November, respectively.
While polls and social media speculation have greatly contributed to forecasting who will be elected president and vice president of either country, psychics are weighing in as well on the contests.
Sylvia Browne of the U.S. and Madam Auring of the Philippines are popular psychics in their respective countries. Lo and behold, both have similar scenarios in predicting which among the candidates will emerge victorious.
Browne and Auring have agreed on two possible scenarios, but neither would confirm which scenario would eventually materialize.
Here are their predictions:
Scenario 1: The Philippines and the U.S. will elect women for both their president and vice president. For the U.S., that would be Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren; for the Philippines, it would be Grace Poe and Leni Robredo.
Scenario 2: The Philippines will elect an autocrat for president, as will the U.S. — Donald Trump and Rodrigo Duterte. As for the vice presidents, it will be sons of former presidents — Jeb Bush and Bongbong Marcos.
Unlike in the U.S., Philippine election laws allow voters to choose a president who is a candidate of one party and a vice president who is from another party, and this is reflected in both psychics’ predictions.
MIAMI, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Following his big win in today’s Super Tuesday 3 primaries, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump officially announced his choice for vice presidential running mate as well as his Cabinet appointees.
It has become apparent that the fierce contest for the GOP nomination was a mere show, a reality TV episode of sorts. All of his appointees were his fellow candidates for the presidential nomination.
Chris Christie, as many have guessed after that “deer caught in the headlight” appearance at a Trump rally after the New Jersey governor dropped out of the race, is the choice for vice president. Christie will concurrently serve as press secretary.
His full line-up for Cabinet positions is as follows:
Dr. Ben Carson and Dr. Rand Paul, Co-Secretaries of Health and Human Services
Marco Rubio, Secretary of Homeland Security, concurrently Secretary of the Interior
Carly Fiorina, Commerce Secretary
Jeb Bush, Secretary of Defense, concurrently Secretary of (low) Energy
Ted Cruz, Secretary of State
Bobby Jindal, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development
Rick Perry, Secretary of Education
Lindsey Graham, Secretary of Agriculture
Mike Huckabee, Secretary of Religion (new Cabinet position)
Rick Santorum, Secretary of Justice
George Pataki, Secretary of Veteran Affairs
John Kasich, Secretary of Transportation
Scott Walker, Treasury Secretary
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has yet to name her VP running mate and Cabinet line up. It is almost a given that she will choose Bernie Sanders as the VP candidate.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Every Filipino knows that he or she doesn’t have to vote for the vice presidential running mate of presidential candidates. Philippine presidential elections are like chop suey, you can mix and match. In fact, incumbent Vice President Jejomar Binay does not belong to the same Liberal Party of President NoyNoy Aquino.
So, in the spirit of chop suey, we are conducting a national poll never conducted before by any polling organization. We’re calling it the ‘Great Presidential-VPD Mix-Up Poll.’
Here are the rules: we’ve chosen to mix and match the presidential and vice presidential candidates across party lines; all you have to do is vote for your favorite pairing. No substitutions, please!
