The Babbler’s shocking predictions for 2016

Will Mayor Roger Claar
become President in 2016?
Every December, our council of psychics gathers together to make predictions for the coming New Year.  Our past predictions have been so accurate, that we suspect that skeptical movement decided to terminate their million dollar prize, rather than aware it to us.

Last year was no exception.  Sure Jay Cutler didn’t become the leader of the Chicago Bears.  He did however, become franchise leader in touchdown passes.  We all agree that Governor Bruce Rauner is trying to run Illinois like a business.  Despite what the skeptics tell you to believe, psychic visions are not clear, and often times their meaning isn’t clear until after the event happens.

So, with that in mind, here are our predictions for 2016:

Despite a massive earthquake which shifts Western California into Oregon and Washington, the NFL will decide not to cancel Super Bowl 50.

“As long as the stadium is still standing, we’ll play the game.”  Commissioner Roger Goodell will say.  “We’re not going to let something like a mass casualty event stop America’s game.  If we do that, Mother Nature wins!  We can’t let Mother Nature win.  Right now I’m not worried about the game.  I’m worried about what I’m going to do with the 49ers now that their stadium is only a few miles from Portland (Oregon).”

***

There will be many sightings of Russian special forces troops in Bolingbrook.  The sightings will start after a Russian soldier will tweet a photo of himself with the caption, “I’m on a secret mission.”  His location will be tagged as Bolingbrook.  After hundreds of sightings, the soldier will admit that he wasn’t on a secret mission, but on vacation.  The Internet will not be convinced.

***
After the primaries, Donald Trump will be 5 delegates short of securing the nomination.  Trump announces that he has the deals in place to win the nomination on the second ballot.

Before the start of the convention, the rules committee will declare most of Trumps delegates ineligible and replace them with “alternate” delegates.  When pointed out that the rules are contradictory and make no sense, the rules chairman will reply, “Come on.  You really didn’t think we were going to let Trump win this, did you.”

Over a thousand armed Trump supporters and delegates will march on Cleveland to demand that Trump be selected as the Republican Party Nominee.  After an exchange of gun fire, resulting in injuries, Trump will come out of a meeting with party officials and say that he is the party’s nominee for President.  The party instead announces that Jeb Bush is the nominee.

“I told you I could fix this.”  He will say.

Both will deliver acceptance speeches at the same time as Trump, with most media outlets covering Trump’s speech.  Then Trump will file a lawsuit against the Republican Party.

***

To the surprise of many, Deadpool will be the biggest superhero movie of 2016, and Batman V Superman will be the biggest flop.  Warners will then announce the cancelation of their cinematic universe.

A critic will explain how this happened.  “Let’s face it.  Comic book fans today are immature adults.  And nothing says immature adult like a Deadpool movie!”

***

Millions will be stunned as the Supreme Court will agree to hear Trump’s case, and put a stay on the US Election.

They will be even more stunned when the Court declares both parties nominees ineligible and declares any voting restrictions on a member of the Electoral College unconstitutional.

Justice Scalia will write the majority opinion.  “The Founding Fathers never intended for the people to directly elect a President.  They are supposed to elect qualified delegates to an electoral college to make the decision for them.  Any law or political party that forces the Electoral Collage to consider the opinion of the rabble is clearly unconstitutional!”

***

Guns N’ Roses will finally reunite in 2016.  To the surprise of many, the band will start all their performances on time, Axl Rose will remember the lyrics to all the songs, and the band will perform full sets every night.

When asked about this, Rose will reply, “Our fans are older and won’t put up with my old (expletive deleted) any more.  The fact is, I really need the money.  Have you seen the sales of Chinese Democracy?  Pathetic, and considering the cost of homeopathic booze, I had no choice but to clean up my act and get my old bandmates to like me again.  So enjoy this tour while you can.  Because next time we tour, we’ll be using walkers, and raising money so we can settle down in a nice retirement community.”

***

Upon hearing rumors that the Electoral Collage will choose Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar for President, billionaire Sheldon Adelson will decide to take action.  Adelson will order Congress to declare war on Israel, and then immediately surrender.  This will result in the United States becoming an “occupied territory.”

Adelson will defend his decision.  “Roger is a nice guy, but insufficiently supportive of Israel.  Plus the Jewish People need more room.  Because of our victory in the Five Second War, Israel will finally have a sufficient military to defend itself, and will no longer be dependent upon American politicians.  American politicians will be dependent upon us.”

Bernie Sanders will be named administrator of the thirteen original states and California.  Donald Trump will be named administrator of the rest of the country.

“We lost a few states, but we got our country back!”  Trump will tell his joyous supporters during his inauguration speech.

Letters to the Editor December 2015

By Doug Fields
Readers' Editor

Hello Bolingbrook.  It’s that time of year when our staff takes time off to be with their families, and we let the readers speak their minds.  Anyone can post a comment on a web page.  This week, we’re celebrating the nearly lost art of writing a letter to the editor.

Not everyone has this talent.  Some confuse brevity with the lack of content.  As you can see below.

To the Editor: 
Donald Trump is popular!  He’s amazing!  He tells it like it is.  Donald Trump is amazingly popular because he tells the truth!  DONALD TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
Liberals don’t stand a chance in this election because, amazingly, Donald Trump’s truth is popular! 
Stan X WillardBolingbrook, IL

That is amazing.  Amazingly bad, even by the standards of the average Trump supporter.  We have printed the unbelievable truth since 1965, but Donald Trump is just unbelievable.  We’ll be following Donald Trump very closely this election season.

Anyway, sometimes our readers come up with good questions.

To the Editor:
I love the Bolingbrook Babbler!  Even though your web site sometimes features stories from around the world, you still post more articles about Bolingbrook than the Chicago Tribune’s Bolingbrook section.  It’s like they can’t tell the difference between Plainfield and Bolingbrook.  Why is that? 
Sue X WhitmoreBolingbrook, IL

Sue, the sad truth is that mainstream journalism is all about getting access to top leaders.  Mayor Roger Claar won’t give any of their reporters the time of day.  Plainfield, on the other hand, is desperate for attention.  So the Tribune has to run articles about Plainfield to fill the void in their Bolingbrook coverage.  We, on the other hand, will always work hard to deliver the unbelievable truth about Bolingbrook, with or without Roger’s help.


Speaking of help, we like to cover our local businesses, and we are open to story suggestions, but this reader’s suggestion is a bridge too far.

To the Editor:
I work for (company name deleted) in Bolingbrook.  We’re multi-billion dollar corporation with an awesome future around the world!  Our social media presence is second to none!  Our CEO makes YouTube videos!  It’s an awesome place to work, and it’s going to become more awesome in 2016! 
You guys are funny, and popular in Bolingbrook.  Why don’t you help (company name deleted) by writing a story about us?  I’ve got the perfect story!  You can say our company liberated a warehouse from aliens!  The employees are so happy that they start singing Supercalifragilistic(company name deleted).  The lyrics can highlight our corporate values and the value we bring to our customers.  Your readers will laugh and learn about a very important Bolingbrook company.  What do you think? 
Dave Y. McAllenBolingbrook, IL

No.  No.  No!  If your billion dollar corporation wants to use their employees’ social media accounts for free advertising, that’s their business.  Asking us to give them free advertising is another matter.  If your company wants to be featured in the Babbler, they can buy advertising at our reasonable rates, or do something newsworthy!

Finally, the Internet has a question for us.

To the Editor: 
You guys have been working on a secret project since 2014.  Are you still working on it, and is it true that PZ Myers is involved?  No, I’m positive that PZ is involved!  This is just your chance to confess and then renounce him! Otherwise… #MRAalltheway, #Atheist! #PZSucks
Mammoth HunterThe Internet

We’re still working on the project.  It’s talking longer than we anticipated, but are pleased with what we are seeing.

No, PZ Myers is not involved.  When we are ready, we’ll announce more details.


Do you think you can write a better letter to the editor?  Send to us at bolingbrookbabbler at gmail (dot) com.

Bolingbrook church challenges atheist David Silverman to MMA match


Bolingbrook’s Full Contact Gospel Church challenged American Atheist president David Silverman to a mixed martial arts cage match.

“David Silverman’s new book is called Fighting God.”  said Minister Blake Z Holm.  “If he wants to fight God, we’ll be happy to give him the opportunity.”

During a press conference, Holm explained that one of his fighters would become imbued with the Holy Spirt and step into a cage with Silverman.  The two would then fight five rounds under UFC rules.  At the end of the match, according Holm, the world would know which is stronger: God or atheism.  Holm also stressed that no harm would come to Silverman until he stepped in the cage.

“Once he steps in the cage, we will only hope that God shows some mercy.  Maybe he will only break one of his arms.”

Holm said he would understand if Silverman refused their match.  “No Godless man would want to step into the ring with one our fighters.  They always have a bit of His Spirit in them.  Atheists like proof.  Here’s proof.”

Doug, the church’s Deacon of Dukes, walked on to the stage.  Five men brought a cloth bag on stage.  Doug explained that the bag was full of horse manure, and weighed as much as Silverman.  Doug said he would lift the bag over his head 100 times.  He then picked up the bag and started lifting it over his head.  After several presses, his knees started to wobble.”

“I can’t do this!” he screamed. “I can’t do this! The stench and weight of atheism is overwhelming!”

“You can do it!”  Yelled a church member.

“Open your heart to Jesus!”

Doug closed his eyes and stopped moving.

“If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine!  Luke 4:7!”

Doug then finished lifting the bag 100 times.  He then threw down the bag, which ripped open.  Doug staggered back.

“Jesus!”

When called for comment, an intern for American Atheists doubted that Silverman would participate.

“Silverman believes that this church is just as real as God, atheist jews and islamophobia.  He has better things to do with his time than pander to your imagination.”

In the background, a man who sounded like Silverman said, “Ed, why are you still being mean to me?  We have to work together to get the silent atheist majority out of the closet, and we know American Atheists is the best group to do that.  So shut up and tell your followers to give me their money!”

Rochelle Reader: Hanukkah Harry ticketed for speeding in Malta

File photo of Hanukkah Harry.
An anonymous Malta, IL police officer ticketed Hanukkah Harry, a Jewish elf, for speeding over Malta, IL.

“I looked up in the sky and saw a flying cart being pulled by three flying Donkeys.  It looked like it was flying below 1000 feet, so that meant it was subject to our speed limits.  Let me tell you, that cart was going faster than 40 miles per hour!”

The officer said that after a quick Google search, he found Harry’s mailing address.  The ticket will be mailed to Harry on Monday.

“The speed limit is the speed limit.  I don’t care if you’re Santa or a UFO.  You can’t go above 40 miles per hour in our town!”

Hanukkah Harry, according to many sources, travels around the world, teaching Jewish children the story of Hanukkah.  If the parents ask, he give children practical gifts.

A lawyer who claims to represent Harry says the cart was on its way to Rockford, and questioned the legality of Malta’s ariel speed limit.

“We never hear about Santa getting speeding tickets, and he has to move eight times as fast as Santa does.  No, this is just a small town trying to take advantage of a lesser known elf.  Even Iran is nicer towards Harry than Malta is!”

When this reporter tried to flag down Harry, he merely yelled, “on Moische,  on Herschel, on Schlomo.  May all your candles burn long and bright on each and every Hanukkah night!”

Stink bomb defused at Bolingbrook atheist Meetup

File photo by Hexogen
The Cook County Bomb Squad successfully defused a stink bomb at the Idoru bar in Bolingbrook.  Sources say the bomb was meant for the Bolingbrook Atheistic Freethinking Skeptical Brights Meetup.

“We want to thank Cook County for their assistance.”  Said an anonymous source within the Bolingbrook Police Department.  The bomb wouldn’t have hurt anyone, but it would have taken days to get the stench out.  I guess a Democrat controlled agency can do some good.”

Bob, who asked that we not use his full name, claims he discovered the bomb while looking for his daughter.

“She went under the table cloth, so I peaked my head under to tell her to leave.  That’s when I saw the bomb attached to the middle post.  It was connected to a cell phone.  She asked if she could make a phone call.  I yelled ‘no’ so loud, the people on the sidewalk noticed!”

Bob said he reported the bomb to organizer.

“The guy just sat there and said he didn’t have a plan.  He just assumed that everyone who attended would be ‘awesome’ and never thought of what to do if something bad happened.”

After Bob talked to the manager, the manager evacuated all the patrons and called the police.  After a few hours, the bomb was successfully removed, and detonated safely.

Another source provided what she claims is a note left inside the bar.

“Groups who claim to represent atheism stink.  People who claim to be leaders of atheism stink!  Any ‘movement’ claiming to represent atheists stinks just as badly as a bowel movement.”

The note was signed by “An atheist going his own way.”  The note from the alleged bomber also contained a warning to organizations that make up the atheist movement.

“Atheism is merely the lack of belief in gods.  That’s it.  It stands for nothing.  It demands nothing.  It expects nothing.  The only things that come from nothing are universes!  Not atheist organizations that demand your money!  These organizations stink!  My fellow atheists are right to condemn Freethought Blogs, but have a blind spot for phony organizations like American Atheists, The Skeptics Society, and Center for Inquiry.  CFI is recognized by the UN.  I don’t recall them asking for my permission before seeking to represent atheists at the UN.  This stinks, and I will make sure that any Meetup group, organization, or coalition that dares to speak for all atheists will reek in public!”

Sources in the Bolingbrook police department say they believe they are dealing with a “mentally ill young white male” and not a “domestic terrorist.”

Janice C. Perkins, a public relations intern at CFI Chicago, say they will not let this stink bomb threat prevent them form doing their work.

“CFI has brought together progressive atheists and libertarian atheist together to give us their time and money.  There is an atheist movement.  It may not represent all atheists, but it exists to defend the rights of all atheists.  Stink bombs will not prevent us from speaking out for liberal causes abroad and libertarian causes at home!”

Rochelle Reader: Five Trump supporters arrested after trying to vandalize alien homes

By Reporter X

The New World Order arrested and charged five Trump supporters with attempting to vandalize the homes of space aliens in Creston.  No homes were damaged, but Men in Black did find sledgehammers, spray paint, and guns in the suspects pick up trucks.

“Let’s be perfectly clear.”  Said John Smith 23, head of Visitor Security in Creston.  “These were not bored teenagers looking for fun.  These were adults trying to terrorize our visitors.  This is unacceptable, and they will be punished!”

Smith says the supporters, who call themselves Trumpets, believe Donald Trump wants to deport all space aliens.  Therefore, they felt they had the right to intimidate Creston’s space alien population.

One of the suspects, who only called himself Chuck, denied they were trying to intimidate the aliens.

“We just wanted to break some glass, and we thought the aliens wouldn’t mind.  You know broken glass looks like crystal at night.  Wouldn’t you—”

“Oh my God!”  His lawyer interrupted.  “Shut up and let me do the talking!  You’re going to get yourself executed.”

“No I won’t!  If Donald Trump can say anything, than so can I!  I have a right to say anything I want!  Earth is for humans only.  Ninety-nine percent of all space aliens are murders and mutants!  Martians are weak!  Democrats are infested with brain slugs!  The New World Order must be destroyed!  Obama—”

His lawyer then punched Chuck.  “You also have the right to remain silent, which I suggest you use if you want to live!”

Golzak, who chased off the alleged vandals, says he is concerned about Trump’s support in the area.

“The humans in Creston are great and very supportive of us.  Unfortunately, Trump has an army of hateful humans, and they can easily overrun Creston without our help.I hope your Republican party finds their anti-Trump candidate soon.  I don’t want any more violence in this political subdivision of Earth.”

A source who works in the Trump campaign, confirms that Trump hates alien visitors.

“The Donald wanted to buy property on the far side of the moon, but aliens already had a base there, and they wouldn’t sell.  He’s never forgiven the greater interstellar community for it.”

The source also confirms the Trump campaign’s recent nod towards attacking non-Trump supporters.

“It’s part of our new Iowa strategy.  You see, it doesn’t matter who wins the straw poll on Caucus night.  Only who ends up with the most delegates at the state convention.  So we want all Iowans to know that we are literally willing to fight you for delegate seats, and we’re not afraid to use our Second Amendment rights.  Not that the two are related, mind you.”

Donald Trump could not be reached for comment.

Governor Rauner to expand ‘refugee ban?’

Governor Bruce Rauner
Could Governor Rauner’s recent ban on Syrian refugees be expanded to include other refugee groups?  Sources with friends in Springfield say yes.

“Once you accept that a governor can decide who can and cannot resettle in their state, the sky’s the limit!”  Said one source.

The sources agree that Rauner could enact popular refugee bans, such as bans on Afghan refugees, Iraqi refugees, and Greek Refugees.  They also say that he’s considering expanding the definition of “refugee” so he can enact more “unconventional bans.”

“We know that there are liberals who are fleeing Wisconsin.  If we could get them declared refugees, then we can ban them from Illinois.  Like Illinois needs more Democratic voters.”

Anther source listed other possible redefined groups he could define as refugees.

“You know all those protests in Missouri?  All we have to do is declare a refugee crisis, and wham!  No protesters moving to Illinois at all!  Sure we’d trap innocent Republicans in Missouri, but that’s the price we have to pay to protect the feelings of university presidents and police officers in Illinois.”

Don, a Wisconsin resident currently visiting Illinois, is outraged at Rauner’s possible new refugee bans.

“I’m a Bears fan, and Wisconsin can be an unbearable place to live in during football season.  If the Pack is winning, my neighbors will constantly least me.  If they’re losing, they’ll yell at me.  If the Bears win, well I can’t talk about what they do to me.  I can handle it now, but it could change, and I want the option to flee to Illinois if I have to.  Rauner wants me to suffer because he’s afraid I might be a secret Packer.  What kind of heartless billionaire is he?  I’m sorry.  That’s redundant.”

Randal, who lives on the West side of Chicago, is also concerned about Rauner’s possible plans.

“I studied hard in school, and now I’m in line for a great job in Bolingbrook.  What if Rauner decides that I’m really a refugee from Chicago, and I could be a secret gang member?  I’m trying to escape the criminals and bad influences here.  I’m not one of them, and I don’t want to be trapped with them!”

A spokesperson for Rauner denied that there are plans to change the definition of “refugee” in Illinois.  She also clarified his position on Syrian refugees.

“The governor cannot actually stop refugees from entering the state, but we can refuse to provide support if the Federal Government settles any refugees.  If any refugee comes to the attention of the State Police, well, lets just say I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes.”

British secret agent hospitalized in Bolingbrook

Photo by Julien Solomita
Sources within village hall confirm that a British Secret agent is being treated at Bolingbrook Adventist Hospital for alcohol poisoning.

“Some people are just not meant to be James Bond.”  Said one of the sources.

The sources agree that the agent, who identified himself as Fergus Baker, parachuted down to Clow Airport on Saturday evening.  According to eyewitnesses, he was wearing a spacesuit with char marks on it.  Once he landed he discarded the space suit, revealing his black tuxedo.

“I always change for the occasion.”  He said to the stunned ground crew.  “Drat!  That didn’t come out right.”

Baker explained that a few hours earlier, he’d been ridden on top of a missile launched off the West Coast.  He used the missile to reach an old Soviet mind control satellite.  Once he reached the satellite, he claims he got into a fight with three cosmonauts who were trying to reactivate it.  He claims they were trying to give Vladimir Putin control of the satellite.  Baker finally stopped them when he managed to jury-rig a laser gun and use it to kill the cosmonauts.

“For a few seconds, I was a shooting star.  What?  I thought that was funny.”

Baker claims he destroyed the satellite, and just happened to land in Bolingbrook. He said he would celebrate his victory, and then report to the British Consulate in the afternoon.

Eyewitnesses later saw Baker at a nearby bar.  Two say women say he approached them.  According to them, he said, “Hello ladies.  My parents were killed by Russians.  My girlfriend promised to marry me, but was really going to sell me out to ISIS.  I kill people for a living.  People around me die, but I save the world every three years.  Why don’t you two join me in my hotel room and see for yourself that Christmas can come early this year.”  

As the women left, they saw the man look at the wall and say, “This never happened to the other fellow.

A bartender said that Baker later asked him for a drink.  

“Rum with coke!  Chill the Coke to 36.4 degrees in a can, not a dispenser.  Gently add the rum before adding the ice.  Make sure there is only 1.2 cm of foam on top!  Make it perfect!  I just saved the world, and I deserve a perfect drink.  Even a Tea Party Supporting American can’t mess up this drink.”

After three attempts, the bartender finally got the drink right.  The agent gulped it down then coughed.

“This really wouldn’t have happened to the other guy.”  He then passed out.

“My first thought was that some evil organization some how knew which bottle I was going to serve him with, and somehow managed to add just the right amount of poison.  Then I realized that this guy seriously couldn’t hold a drink.

Baker was rushed to the hospital, where he is currently being treated.  Sources in the hospital say he should be OK, and released by Wednesday.  

The British Consulate and MI6 deny that Baker works for the British government.

Bush whisper campaign accuses Sen. Marco Rubio of being a Reptoid


Sources say that Jeb Bush’s staff is starting a whisper campaign accusing Sen. Marco Rubio of being a Reptoid alien.

“Desperate times call for desperate measures.”  Said one source.  “There are only two types of people in the world: The Bushes and the help.  Right now the help isn’t helping us!  Worse, the Republican Party is about to elect one of the most unhelpful persons ever!  We can’t let this happen!  We can’t lose to a candidate that spends more time selling books than campaigning for President!”

Weighed down by poor poll numbers, declining donations, and major staff cuts, Bush’s advisor’s are afraid that the Republican establishment will turn to Rubio as their alternative to “insurgent” candidates like Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson, and Carly Fiorina.  Sources within the Republican party believe that if Rubio gets the nomination, the “insurgent Tea Party” Republicans will accept him, and the party will be reunited.

The Bush campaign feels it must destroy Rubio if it hopes to become the official Republican establishment campaign.

“I joined the Bush campaign to win.  Not to take a pay cut and fly coach!”  Said another anonymous staff member.  “The Republican voters have gone crazy, and we have to speak their language if we want to survive!  Our dark ops team has to take things to a new level of Florida!  We have to make things so Florida that even Rubio can’t charm his way out!”

The campaign will begin their campaign by posting comments on conservative boards.  Then they plan on paying bloggers to “beg the question” about Rubio’s humanity.  With enough Internet comments, they hope that Fox News will notice and run a “some people say” type news story.

“It will be perfect.  Republican pundits, I mean thought leaders, will be able to question his race without being accused of racism.  Jeb will keep quiet while the conservative media will do our work for us.  We wish we didn’t have to do this, but he gave us no choice by running for President, instead of supporting Jeb.  He will have to pay for crossing the Bush family!”

A spokesperson for Rubio denied the charges.  “If he wants to bring up the senator’s alleged ties to aliens, we’ll be happy to bring up his family’s real ties to Saudi Arabia!”  

“In the background, a man could be heard talking.  “I need more water.  How can you sit there and not drink water.  I also wish the Earth would warm up faster.  It’s too cold here in Texas!”

Bush could not be reached for comment because the minutes on his pre-paid cellphone had run out.
