YouTube time traveler claims MLK’s granddaughter will be the last U.S. president
‘I know many of you will not believe me, but I’m simply telling you the truth.’
A supposed YouTube time traveler who says he’s from the year 2045 claims to know the identity of the final U.S. president. It’s a name we’ve heard before from those who are featured on the ApexTV channel.
According to this time traveler—who said he goes by the name Adam Archon even though he sounds exactly like ApexTV’s most popular time-traveling character Noah—all the countries of the world will begin to converge with each other in the early 2030s. From there, 10 leaders will follow the command of an artificial intelligence being which rules the seven newly created world districts.
If that’s the case, there’s likely no need for an American president. Which means that Yolanda Renee King, the granddaughter of Martin Luther King Jr., will be the last U.S. president, according to Archon.
In the past, Noah has touted King as a future U.S. president. The problem with that prediction is that King is now 10-years-old. By the year 2030, she’d be 21 or 22 (we already know what a map from that year would look like). Considering the U.S. Constitution states that a person must be at least 35 years old to be elected, it appears that an amendment would have to be created to make King eligible.
“She’s the best president the United States has ever seen,” Archon said.
In this video, the supposed time traveler also makes a few other predictions, including one in which he says the convergence between humors and computers begins taking place in 2045.
In a previous ApexTV video, a time traveler from 2045 showed supposed video from the future. That man, whose pixelated face and modified voice also could belong to Archon, gave the same prediction as Archon, saying that humans and robots will begin melding together 25 years into the future and that artificial intelligence governs a world without countries.
In other predictions, Archon said worldwide UFO sightings will begin to rise in early 2019—Noah said the same thing in a previous video—and in August 2029, Archon said the existence of aliens will be revealed to the public. He wouldn’t say where the aliens are from, but he did claim they were not from space.
In 2036, Archon said avatars let people occupy a robotic body that will then allow their minds to travel anywhere in the world with superhuman abilities.
“I promise you these events will happen with 100 percent certainty,” Archon said. “I know many of you will not believe me, but I’m simply telling you the truth. Do what you want with these facts.”
Most people, of course, will dismiss those so-called facts. But that probably won’t stop these supposed time travelers from reaching out to ApexTV, which is approaching 1 million subscribers. Time travelers are getting hundreds of thousands of views with these prediction videos—even if most of them pretty much say the same thing.
