Strange Fiction


From 1892 to 1896, a writer by the name of Ingersoll Lockwood penned three children's novels in which the characters are a boy named Baron Trump and his Master by the name of the Don. The Baron Trump novels recount adventures of a German boy, Wilhelm Heinrich Sebastian Von Troomp, who goes by "Baron Trump", as he discovers weird underground civilizations in a hollow earth in northern Russia, generally offends those around him, and flees from his entanglements with local women again and again before arriving back home at Castle Trump. 

Ingersoll's "Baron Trump's Marvelous Underground Journey" is the tale of the boy as he travels in time. It all begins in Russia where Baron receives instruction from the Don, the Master of all Masters. Baron Trump is "precocious, restless, and prone to get into trouble", often drawing attention to his intelligence, and having a personalized insult for most people he meets. Sound familiar?

In Ingersoll's subsequent novel to the first three, "The Last President" or "1900", he writes about a president who resides on Fifth Avenue in New York City in a tower named for him, exactly where Trump Tower stands today, who coincidentally wins an election against all odds.
116 years after the book was written, a man named Donald J. Trump does become the president. The president's home city of New York is plagued by protests of anarchists and socialists against what they perceive as a rigged presidential election. Interestingly, in the administration of the President Trump in the book is a man named Pence.

The Communists ultimately take over the country in the book, as New York falls to social unrest. Rich elites are protected in their homes, but many people are assassinated by the mob. The people would celebrate the new president who stands against the tide to "free the land from the grasp of the money-lenders, and undo the bad business of years of unholy union between barterers and sellers of human toil and the lawmakers of the land."  Again, very familiar!!!

Who was Ingersoll Lockwood? He was an American lawyer and writer born in 1841 in New York. His novels outlive his other significant contributions for their startling prophetic synchronicities in the early 21st Century. Among other of his written works is a notable book entitled "Laconics of Cult", a mirror to his earlier works going deeper into the occult and esoteric knowledge, deep hermeticism, possibly linked to the order of the Jesuits and other secrets of the Mystery Schools. Under his two photographs at age 30 and age 60 in "Laconics of Cult" he refers to himself as the author and originator of the cult of the immortal human. His apparent lack of aging in thirty years leads one to question whether he had himself, in fact, discovered some secret of immortality by his reference.

Lockwood interestingly started a society for men who were 6 feet 2 inches tall. Coincidentally, Donald Trump is 6 feet 2 inches tall; so was Nikola Tesla; so was General George Patton. It was called the Order of the Titans, with links to the Freemasons. Just as Baron Trump had the guiding manuscripts from the Master Don in the book, the rumor is that our President Donald J. Trump likely has the manuscripts of Nikola Tesla, given to him by his uncle, John G. Trump. Some believe he has used the work and technology of Tesla to run the timeline to win the presidency and continue benefiting the world in modern time.

What did Ingersoll Lockward foresee in 1896? How did he forecast these events? Was it divination? Was it channeling? Was it time travel? Or could he possibly have been reporting on a real time traveler named Baron Trump? These novels, with some of their phrases and situations, really makes one wonder if there are authors who have a window to the future, true prophets like Jules Verne and his "From Earth to the Moon", Edgar Allen Poe with his Arthur Gordon Pim (a story that occurred with names that appeared 50 years later); and Morgan Robertson in "Futility or the Wreck of the Titan", a novel about the wreck of the Titanic, with locations, names and descriptions, written 20 years before the actual event.

Was Ingersoll Lockwood even a real person? Looking at the etymology of his name, it can be broken down and interpreted to mean "the one resident of the house that is secured by fencing, protected by the god of light, understanding that climate is subject to the control of God and not man; one who wishes to bring back masculinity and prosperity to his people; whose leadership is ordained by God." Is this etymological depiction that of the author himself... or is it that of one Donald J. Trump over one hundred years into the future?
