When Allan Lichtman correctly predicted the widely unexpected outcome of the 2016 presidential election, he received a personal note of congratulations from Donald Trump. Months later, the President will soon receive a copy of a new book outlining Lichtman's next big prediction: impeachment.
Throughout his career, Trump has avoided accountability," Lichtman told TIME on Friday. "As president, though, you cannot walk away from accountability. You can’t declare bankruptcy, you can’t just abandon a deal. And the ultimate accountability is impeachment."
Lichtman, an American University history professor who has used a set of keysto correctly predict every presidential election since 1982, gained attention last year when he predicted that Trump would win the election and then be impeached.

"Pushing The Limit"
with Jay Adams
First time I had a photo of mine made into a T-shirt
The year 1977
JAY ADAMS 1977 - this is a classic T-Shirt made in the surf style of the era. "PUSHING THE LIMIT" - it was the first time a photo of mine had been used on a shirt, i got $50 and a dozen shirts for my friends and I. Still got this one and an orange long sleeve one in my archive. Jay is hitting the last wall at Resida "SkaterCross", it was one of the earliest skateparks built in the LA area, out in the Valley , just down the block from an Arby's, and it was actually like an old A&W Drive-In restaurant, they kept the cover which kept a portion of the park in shade... it was a pretty bazaar park, but they all were back then really. i made some cool photos there, and it was where i met Warren Bolster in person for the first time, at their grand opening. He gave me 3 rolls of film! (Kodachrome 64) first time i ever got free film, and i was beyond stoked, made a full pager of Wally Inouye that day, my third photo ever published. #skateboarding #15yearsOld #oldschool #surfstyle #Tshirt #JayBoy #Zflex #inspiration #integrity #original #silkscreen #70s #StoriesForDays #Bert #skatepark #skaterCross

We live in a world of alternative “facts” where the President makes statements almost every day that aren’t always based in fact. We are raised to believe the President tells the truth, but since that isn’t necessarily the case anymore, and to bring children up to date on the new American way, we took a cue from Schoolhouse Rock to explain how it all works now.

Karl Marx remains deeply important today not as the man who told us what to replace capitalism with, but as someone who brilliantly pointed out certain of its problems.
