Alright, last night night I studied the time traveller's story pretty pretty intently. Here's what we know about what goes down. Obama's LOSING the election apparently signals this war timeline. That said, the BIG QUESTION remains though---what happens if he wins. There is no guarantee that the timeline would be significantly better. In fact, it could be increasingly worse. The latter scenario could also result in an assassination attempt(s) by any number of possible parties either prior to or after the 2012 election. Along those lines, I just posted Hassen Jaffers 2012 predictions the other day in this section and indeed he did see an increased safey risk for Obama in the summer and fall.
The other thing which struck me about the account was that the time traveller claimed that time travel only came about in 2040. I believe he is sincere in this belief, but quite probably misinformed. We know from material posted here---Project Pegasus and the Montauk Project---that time travel has already most likely been achieved. The time traveller claims that the facility is underground in Boulder and I believe I know the corporation that is involved with that project. Will post shortly. More likely is that facility is operational at the present time as to construct such a place after a devastating war would not be very feasible in my view. Another scenario is that time travel operations got wiped out on both coasts and this inland facility was one of the few or the only one remaining. With communications very poor in the time traveller's future even the scientists could find themselves isolated, although I tend to believe that they prepared for that beforehand.
Getting back to Obama's losing. The time traveller reported that the last edition of the Denver newspaper was on November 22. 2012 when he returned to this time. Shortly thereafter the internet was cut and there were power shortlages. This would fit into predicted power outages just prior to December 21, 2012(possibley by an EMP or solar event). As such, one would have about 2 weeks subsequent to the election to bug out and be in a safe zone.
