TED KENNEDY AND ROBERT NOVAK: A TALE OF TWO SEIZURES
On May 17, 2008 a 76 year old Ted Kennedy suffered a near fatal brain seizure while in his home at Hyannisport caused by a cancerous tumor on the left side of his brain. 71 days later on July 27th while vacationing with his wife and family conservative columnist Bob Novak suffered a seizure from the same type of tumor also located on the left side of his brain. Amazingly and incredibly Novak was vacationing at his daughter’s summer home at Cape Code where Kennedy lived and had his attack. Mere coincidence and happenstance? I think not. Just as Novak was geographically close to Kennedy’s home when he was stricken the two men, both Roman Catholic, were close in age with their birthdays separated by just 4 days (see note 1). For Novak and Kennedy were born in the early 1930s when the U.S. economy collapsed into a deep and agonizing depression-with Novak born February 26, 1931 and Kennedy one year later on February 22nd, the year FDR captured the presidency.
Note to the reader: This work was started shortly after Election Day 2008 when Kennedy and Novak were still alive. Amazingly, both men were born in the same month of February one year apart; were stricken with brain cancer in the same year 71 days apart while physically located at Cape Code several miles apart; moreover, they died within 7 days of each other in August with Novak leaving us on August 18th 14 days from Obama’s 48th birthday and Kennedy 7 days later 21 days from Obama’s birthday.
Could it be that the physical collapse of these two Depression-born men, stemming from the same terrible cause, prophetically signals the fate of the economy in the months and years ahead? The economy under the anti-Capitalist, anti-growth, deficit spending leftist policies of Barack Hussein Obama and the big government Democrats in Congress? Policies which wrongly and fatally focus on the spending and spreading of wealth instead of its creation? and have many Americans alarmed and up in arms because of the soaring deficit, gargantuan debt and threat of national bankruptcy*?
*As 71 days separated Kennedy and Novak’s tumor attacks it is interesting to note that this number is a factor of 213 (3x) a number that gives us the date 2-13 or February 13th, the ominous day that the Senate passed Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment (Stimulus) Act; a predictably failed attempt to end the recession and turn the economy around as it didn‘t work for Hoover or FDR (the New Deal was Hooverism on steroids) or for Japan after 20 years of stimulus spending, monetizing debt and infrastructure projects.
Ideologically Kennedy and Novak are polar opposites having nothing in common except on foreign policy: for both were neo-isolationists opposing America’s interventionist policies, global hegemony and “empire” of military bases, the cornerstone of international order and stability. Indeed, both men opposed intervention in Iraq to topple Saddam Hussein wrongly warning George Bush that it would become his Vietnam and South East Asia catastrophe. Opposition to the war was Barack Obama’s ticket to presidential history with Kennedy being his kingmaker-his endorsement was crucial to Obama beating Hillary in the primaries and winning his party’s nomination. Novak was born in Joliet, Illinois just south of Chicago, Obama‘s home town-the first Democrat in history from Illinois to win the presidency (see note 2).
Could it be that Novak’s and Kennedy’s malady portend a coming disaster for Iraq with their forecasts of a new Vietnam belatedly coming true? In other words, could Iraq with its fragile security gains and it’s failure at achieving religious and ethnic reconciliation collapse into pre-surge chaos during Obama’s weak and feckless presidency? A presidency aspiring ideologically to end US world hegemony and the Pax Americana (see) ? Kennedy’s brain seizure more than Novak’s indicates that this is likely to happen with the blame falling on Obama and the political Left*.
*Tim Johnson’s brain seizure in 2006 during a teleconference with reporters on Iraq and his release from hospital care on Vietnam Liberation Day in 2007 gave us what I believe was a prophetic pairing of Iraq and Vietnam as a warning sign of things to come for the Middle East and US foreign policy in the Obama era (see). .Oddly, in the 110th Congress Johnson and Kennedy were listed alphabetically back to back on the Senate roster.
Indeed, the day of Kennedy’s physical collapse-a soft-on-terror senator weak on military, defense and security issues-was no ordinary day; in fact, it was an important military day: the 58th celebration of Armed Forces Day when the nation honors the four branches of its military-not a good sign for the two wars we are waging abroad or for world peace (see note 3).
Even more extraordinary and related to the military and coming setbacks is that Kennedy’s illness fell on the day when one of our greatest living military heroes was celebrating his 28th wedding anniversary. That hero was Vietnam vet and presidential candidate John McCain-a man defeated and captured by North Vietnam and sentenced to five years of torture and terror in communist prisoner hell (see note 4).
Did the unfortunate collapse of Kennedy’s and Novak’s health from left-sided brain tumors prefigure the political victory of the ideologically diseased politically correct Left over conservatism, right reason and sound judgment in domestic and foreign affairs, with Kennedy’s malady foreshadowing the failure of McCain’s campaign-a campaign where McCain lost to a radical leftist senator destined, so it seems, to collapse our economy and foreign policy and put this nation through hell? It certainly looks that way. It looks like our moral and mental mess of a leader is blundering his way into a catastrophic presidency as bad as anything we have seen; a destructively failed presidency prefigured by Kennedy’s near fatal collapse and left-sided brain seizure-which ominously recurred on Inauguration Day, an awful, inauspicious way to start a presidency*. But Obama’s impact on the economy and foreign policy is not the subject of this work**. This and much more will be intricately explored in my work: The Rise and Fall of Barack Obama and The End of the Secular Progressive Left. What follows is limited to exploring Obama’s connection to Ted Kennedy and his tragic, ill-starred clan; and especially his link to JFK of whom the Kennedys see Obama as the latest incarnation and savior of the Left.
*Especially inauspicious for Obamacare and healthcare reform. When Kennedy died in August in the middle of the healthcare debate the dream of a nationalized system died with him.
**This much I will predict: after four disastrous years of the Obama Doctrine in national security and foreign policy the neo-isolationists on the Left and Right (Progressives and Paleos, the Kennedys and Novaks) will be thoroughly discredited as the chaos Obama unleashes will cause new appreciation for the Pax Americana.
CHAPTER 1. THE DAY THE KENNEDYS ENDORSED OBAMA
Ted Kennedy, senior senator from Massachusetts, endorsed Obama’s bid for the 44th presidency on January 28th, the 28th day of 2008, from the campus of American University in Washington DC. The location itself would be of no interest except that its address corresponds to Kennedy’s home state and the number of the presidency Obama was seeking. For the university’s address is 4400 Massachusetts Avenue, the number 44 without the zeros.
Remarkably, on June 17, 1963, from that very same campus 44 years earlier, John Kennedy delivered a graduation day speech on the subject of war and world peace. Why is this remarkable? Apart from the speech occurring 44 years before Obama’s endorsement by Kennedy, JFK was 28 months and 28 days into his short lived presidency, hence:
January 20, 1961 (JFK’s inauguration) to June 17, 1963 (JFK’s American University speech)=2 years, 4 months and 28 days, or 28 months and 28 days.
In other words, Ted Kennedy’s endorsement of Obama and JFK’s speech not only gives us the same location but the same two numbers 44 and 28 numbers important to this study and key to understanding Obama‘s presidential destiny.
2. JFK AND THE DAY OBAMA WAS BORN
Now just as Ted Kennedy endorsed Barack Obama’s bid to be the 44th president on the 28th day of the year in 2008 so was Obama born 67 days into JFK’s 44th year on the 28th week of his presidency, hence:
May 29, 1917 (JFK’s birth) to August 4, 1961 (Obama’s birth)=44 years and 67 days.
January 20, 1961 (JFK’s inaugural) to August 4, 1961 (Obama’s birth)=196 days or 28 weeks.
So in addition to the numbers 44 and 28 we now have a third number 67 as part of a numeric equation for unraveling the mystery and future course of Obama’s presidency.
Now here is where is gets profound and very inauspicious for the president: for just as Obama was born 67 days into JFK’s 44th year, which was the 28th week of his short and tragic presidency, so on the day the Kennedys endorsed Obama’s candidacy, the 28th day of January, it was 67 days into the 44th anniversary of JFK’s death, hence:
November 22, 2007 (44th anniversary of JFK’s death) to January 28, 2008 (Kennedys endorse Obama)=67 days.
Is it not remarkable that 67 days into JFK’s 44th year on the 28th week of his presidency a future president is born the 44th in our history endorsed by JFK‘s younger brother on the 28th day of 2008, 67 days into the 44th anniversary of JFK‘s death?
Could the chaotic play of blind chance have randomly arranged these precise numeric pairings and patterns? I think not. The "coincidences" are too many and the precision too mathematically exact to be anything less than the signature effect of a Higher Power (the Great Architect and Mathematician of the Universe) guiding our Republic by a Master Plan and warning us in advance about the tragic course of Obama’s failing presidency. But there’s more, much more showing the hand of Providence in Obama’s rise to power especially in the last presidential race:
For just as Ted Kennedy suffered his brain seizure on John McCain’s 28th wedding anniversary (see introduction), and Obama’s day of birth fell on the 67th day of JFK’s 44th year (on the 28th week of his presidency) so did Obama defeat McCain in the race for the 44th presidency exactly 67 days from McCain’s 72nd birthday, hence:
August 29, 1939 (McCain’s birth) to November 4, 2008 (Election Day)=72 years and 67 days.
Moreover, and quite amazingly, when we subtract JFK’s age on the date of Obama’s birth from McCain’s age when he lost to Obama (the birth of his presidency) the difference is exactly 28 years, hence:
72 (McCain’s age when defeated by Obama)
(JFK’s age when Obama was born)
Perhaps more than any significant number in Barack Obama’s extraordinary political career 28 stands out as the most important as it signifies his election victory in 2008. But the numeric signs surrounding Obama’s campaign and presidential victory (evidence of Intelligent Design in his candidacy and presidency) is a subject for another day which I will explore in a separate work. Suffice it to say that the number 28 is a numeric sign auspicious of Obama’s electoral fortunes*. And just as Obama was born in the 44th year of JFK’s life, 28 weeks into his ill-starred presidency, so, it seems, was he destined from birth to be endorsed by the Kennedys for the 44th presidency and by doing so incur the proverbial “Kennedy curse” on his leadership**.
* On January 28, 2008 the Obama presidency was born-or in its embryonic stage-as the Kennedy endorsement gave Obama the edge that he needed to defeat Hillary Clinton in the primaries.
**Obama’s ill-fated presidency and so-called “curse” will become more evident to the reader in the fifth, sixth and seventh chapters of this work.
CHAPTER 3. THE NEW JFK AND THE SECOND COMING OF CAMELOT
In the historic election of Barack Obama there was a sense of inevitability as the political Left for decades have been aching for a “new JFK” to renew the promise and dream-real or imagined-that was cut short and ruined by Kennedy’s terrible death. And now he’s here, as many want to believe, with a little Martin Luther King and a lot of LBJ thrown in.
Indeed, it seems that unseen forces* were at work when Obama became the new darling of the Kennedy clan with the senator endorsing his candidacy in the hope that the 44th presidency would be the second coming of his murdered brother, the coming of Camelot II, the “dream” reborn (the socialist dream) coming at last to fruition in America (see note 5).
*Meaning supernatural forces.
For the man who was born on August 4th and won the presidency on November 4th, giving us the number 44, was also the 4th aspirant to Camelot II* to seek the presidency since JFK’s death, and the only one to succeed (see note 6). In fact, there is a kind of historic progression or trajectory of events in Obama’s unprecedented success as you will see in what follows:
*It is interesting to note that Ted Kennedy is the 4th and last of the Kennedy brothers having lived just long enough to help Obama to the presidency.
4. THE FORTY YEAR TRAJECTORY IN THE RESTORATION OF CAMELOT
First, pro-Israeli presidential candidate Bobby Kennedy (first aspirant to Camelot II) is murdered in cold blood by a Palestinian gunman before he could finish his primary race in 1968.
Then going one step further than his murdered brother Ted Kennedy, without incident, took the 1980 Democratic primaries as far as he could go until he lost to Jimmy Carter in mid-March of that year ending his race of all places in the state of Illinois (see note 7).
Next, John F. Kerry in 2004 surpassing his mentor Ted Kennedy defeats his Democratic rivals to win his party’s nomination, but falls just short of reaching the goal when he loses to George Bush in a fairly close election.
Now after 40 years of failure and three defeated candidates and aspirants to Camelot Barack Obama (the most Leftist of the four) triumphs over all; and winning both the primaries and the presidency reaches the goal and becomes the 44th president, the age of John Kennedy when he was born-at a troubling time in history. All very strange, very true and directed, so I believe, by a Higher Power as you may gather from the marvels that follow:
CHAPTER 5. THE KENNEDYIZING OF OBAMA AND THE MURDER OF JFK
When JFK was murdered by Lee Harvey Oswald for his patriotic anti-Communism and threat to Castro’s Cuba he was age 46: the same age as Obama when Ted Kennedy endorsed his candidacy, and one year younger than Obama when he became 44th president. It’s as though Obama was ready to retrieve the torch dropped by the 46 year old Kennedy and continue in some way his presidency-continuing where his presidency abruptly left off.
But here is where it gets profound and indicates, I believe, the hand of Providence telling us in what way Obama is continuing JFK’s presidency:
BARACK OBAMA’S CHART OF TRAGIC DESTINY
46th Birthday 47th Birthday
5-29-63> 177 Days <11-22-63> 189 Days <5-29-64
8-4-07> 177 Days <1-28-08> 189 Days < 8-4-08
46th Birthday 47th Birthday
Kennedys Endorse Obama
This remarkable chart (which I published on this blog months ago, see), indicates, I believe, that it is Barack Obama’s destiny to suffer tragically in office and that this fate is rooted in the date of his anointing by Ted and Caroline Kennedy-a date that sealed his fate to become President of the United States. For that date January 28, 2008, when Caroline said she heard her father’s voice in Obama’s words, is numerically and ominously rooted in November 22, 1963 the awful day of JFK’s death, the day that shook the world. Let me explain:
On November 22, 1963 when Kennedy was assassinated at age 46 it was 189 days short of his 47th birthday, the age at which Obama, the “black Kennedy,” won election and became our first Afro-American president, hence:
November 22, 1963 to May 29, 1964 (Kennedy’s 47th birthday)=189 days.
Amazingly and Providentially, denoting a fateful or fatal bond between these two men, exactly 189 days short of Obama’s 47th birthday brings us to the date January 28th, the politically significant and providential day in 2008 when Ted and Caroline Kennedy, John Kennedy’s last surviving brother and child, blessed Obama’s candidacy practically anointing him the “new JFK,” hence:
January 28, 2008 (date of Kennedy’s endorsement) to August 4, 2008 (when Obama turned 47)=189 days.
But there’s more suggesting divine intervention in Obama’s candidacy, victory and inextricable ties to the unfortunate “accursed” Kennedys. For when JFK was tragically murdered he was 177 days into his 46th year, hence:
May 29, 1963 (JFK’s 46th birthday) to November 22, 1963 (JFK’s death)=177 days.
Inconceivably and incredibly, the 177th day of Barack Obama’s 46th year once again links him to the Kennedys: for that 177th day converges with the fateful date January 28th, the day Obama was Kennedyized and Kennedyism-the need some have for a charismatic leader like JFK to venerate and idolize-was reborn, hence:
August 4, 2007 (Obama’s 46th birthday) to January 28, 2008 (the day Obama was Kennedyized)=177 days.
Amazingly, we have seen that 28 days into the year 2008 Barack Obama is made heir apparent to JFK’s legacy (a tragic legacy) anointed by John Kennedy’s only surviving brother and child-with up to fifteen members of the Kennedy clan present; anointed from the campus of a university-with an address corresponding to the 44th presidency-where the 35th president gave a major foreign policy speech 44 years earlier and 28 months and days into his administration.
We also saw that there was an unmistakable interconnection between the day of Obama’s birth, the JFK presidency and the defeat of John McCain for the 44th presidency.
Now we see that Obama’s bond with the Kennedys and JFK is ominous of coming woe to Obama personally and to the nation*: for the number of days separating January 28, 2008 from Barack Obama’s 46th and 47th birthdays equally match the number of days separating November 22, 1963-the day of Kennedy’s death-from JFK’s 46th and 47th birthdays. Moreover, the number of years separating JFK’s murder from Obama’s anointing by the Kennedys was 44, the number of Obama’s presidency, hence:
November 22, 1963 to January 28, 2008=44 years, 2 months and 6 days.
*The period following JFK’s death was one of the most culturally divisive and tumultuous in American history. As this was a period of assassinations, mass protests, civil disobedience and violence its not an historical accident that Barack Obama is our first 60s born President as he is both a sign and a cause of coming national turmoil.
The probability of these numeric patterns and convergences occurring randomly, fortuitously and undesigned is less than zero. While they all point ominously to a tragic fate for Obama and his presidency, willed, I believe, by Divine Necessity for the greater good and progress of our Republic, the true meaning and nature of this tragedy will be revealed in the fullness of time. Whether there be a Sword of Damocles hanging over Obama’s head ready to fall at a fatal hour, as happened to JFK in Dallas, or whether his presidency will simply bleed to death by a thousand cuts as happened to LBJ (with Obama refusing to run for a second term), is impossible to tell; for as the reader will see in the “Rise and Fall of Barack Obama” the president has a powerful bond to LBJ as well.
But let us continue as I have more to say on the uncanny connection between Obama and the Kennedys.
CHAPTER 6. 1932, 1960 AND PRESIDENT AT AGE 47
Just as Obama’s presidential destiny seems inextricably linked to the fate and fortunes of the Kennedys, a family heartbreakingly plagued by assassinations, disease, death by accidents, addictions and encounters with the law-believed in popular culture to be specially cursed-it so happens that JFK, who was 44 when Obama was born, ran for the presidency in 1960, the 44th presidential contest in U.S. history*. Amazingly, at the time of his brother’s victory Ted Kennedy, who backed Obama on January 28th to be 44th president, was 260 days into his 28th year, hence:
February 22, 1932 (Ted Kennedy’s birth) to November 8, 1960 (Election Day)=28 years.
*Dwight Eisenhower’s reelection in 1956 was the 43rd presidential contest in history.
This I believe is further proof that 28, for a mysterious Providential reason*, is Obama’s number of success and victory in presidential politics**-a victory anticipated, so it seems, not only by his Kennedyizing on January 28th and his birth on the 28th week of JFK’s presidency, but by the date of his acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention. For this date fell on the 28th day of August (see note 8)***.
*The meaning of the second perfect number 28 within the context of this work will be fully explained in The Rise and Fall of Barack Obama.
*On February 17th when Obama signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act it was the 28th day of his presidency: January 20th to February 17=28 days. This was Obama’s signature economic initiative.
**As 28 was a numeric sign auspicious for Obama’s presidential hopes let’s not forget Ted Kennedy’s ominous seizure on McCain’s 28th wedding anniversary prefiguring Obama’s victory over McCain and the collapse of the Democratic Left, It was McCain’s good fortune that he lost the election as economic conditions beyond his control, now being aggravated by Obama and the Democrats, would have made him a failed one term president with Obama coming back to defeat him in 2012 (see ).
As for the number 28 it is fascinating to note that Kennedy’s anointing of Obama was withheld until 28 days into 2008 the number 28 with two intervening zeros-the year of Obama’s destined victory. Moreover, and very relevant, 28 just happens to be the numerical value of the words New Deal*, hence:
555 4513=28 (see note 10)
*Obamanomics has been called the new New Deal as it follows FDR’s stimulus spending policies and corruption in using taxpayers money for political paybacks to special interests and the reelection of allies.
It is simply amazing that the number 28 should have such oracular significance for Obama’s political fortunes and that the New Deal, with a numeric value of 28, should be the model for his economic recovery plan.
Even more fascinating is that 28 is a factor in the numbers 1932 and 1960, the years of Ted Kennedy’s birth and JFK’s election as president, hence:
28x70=1960 (see note 9).
As the year 1932 not only saw the birth of Ted Kennedy but of FDR’s presidency* and the failed New Deal this, I believe, is a sign foreshadowing the fate of Obama’s mega New Deal/Keynesian stimulus program (this will be explored in The Rise and Fall of Barack Obama).
*Perhaps it’s more accurate to say that the election of a new president is his conception and inauguration day his birth.
Now as Ted Kennedy was age 28 when JFK won the 44th presidential race in U.S. history and he endorsed Obama on the 28th day of the year it so happens that the number of years separating these two events is 47 Obama’s age when he won election, hence:
November 8, 1960 (JFK’s election) to January 28, 2008 (Kennedy’s endorsement)=47 years, 2 months and 20 days*.
And lastly, 28 is a factor of the number 56 2x, the number of the presidential race in 2008.*
*If chance is the cause of these numeric patterns and signs then chance, as Anatole France once said, is another name for God.
7. RFK’S ASSASSINATION AND OTHER SIGNS OF OBAMA’S “KENNEDY CURSE.”
Other portents indicating the fatal, ill-starred, tragic bond between Obama and the Kennedys are as follows:
1. The first post-primary meeting with New York Senator Hillary Clinton on June 5th:
This meeting fell on the 40th anniversary of New York Senator Robert Kennedy’s assassination held in the home of Dianne Feinstein-who became mayor of San Francisco in the late 1970s upon the shooting death of her predecessor, George Mascone. Kennedy was shot in California, the state Feinstein represents in the Senate (see ).
2. Obama’s choice of Joe Biden as VP:
Biden was born on November 20, 1942 the day Bobby Kennedy (born 11-20-1925) celebrated his 17th birthday. Biden’s age at the time of 65 corresponds to the date June 5th, or 6-5 when Kennedy was shot.
As Obama, with Kennedy’s help, rode the wave of anti-Iraq War sentiment to his party’s nomination it is fascinating to note that when the war began on March 19, 2003 (stateside) Sirhan Sirhan (RFK’s killer, born 3-19-1944) was celebrating his 59th birthday from his prison cell. Sirhan is now 65 years old.
Note: Ending the Vietnam War was the central plank of RFK’s presidential campaign. That he was murdered by an Arab fanatic born on a day destined to be famous as the start of the Iraq War may in some strange way be prophetic of Iraq turning into a new Vietnam for U.S. foreign policy. This idea will be taken up and fully explored in The Rise and Fall of Barack Obama.
3. Caroline Kennedy’s birth and Ted Kennedy’s name:
As Caroline was one of two Kennedys to anoint Obama’s candidacy for the 44th presidency it so happens that the number of months separating her birth from that of Obama’s are 44, hence:
November 27, 1957 (Caroline Kennedy’s birth) to Obama’s birth on August 4, 1961=3 years, 8 months and 7 days or 44 months*.
As Ted Kennedy was the other Kennedy to anoint Obama it just so happens that his name has a numerical value of 44, hence
254 2555547=44 (see note 10).
4. Ted Kennedy’s Inaugural Seizure
As Ted Kennedy’s collapse from his malady in May 2008 was repeated at Obama’s inaugural it so happens that the two mishaps were separated by 248 days or 35 weeks, the presidency number of the fallen JFK, hence:
May 17, 2008 (Kennedy’s first collapse) to January 20, 2009 (Kennedy’s second collapse)=248 days, or 35 weeks*.
*Ironically, 35 is a factor in the numbers 280 (28 without the zero) and (like 28) 1960, the year JFK became the 35th president-elect, hence:
5. Robert Novak’s Seizure and the Anniversary of JFK’s Death.
Astonishingly, the same 248 days or 35 weeks separating Ted Kennedy’s two tumor attacks are the exact same number of days and weeks separating Bob Novak’s attack (in Ted Kennedy’s neighborhood of Cape Cod) to the 44th anniversary of JFK’s death, hence:
November 22, 2007 (44th anniversary of JFK’s death) to July 27, 2008 (Novak’s attack)=248 days or 35 weeks.
6. The Fatal Sign of 177
As 177 days separated John Kennedy’s 46th birthday from the day of his death, and the same number of days separate Obama’s 46th birthday from his anointing by the Kennedys (see chapter 5) amazingly it was 177 days after the 44th anniversary of JFK’s murder that Ted Kennedy suffered his near fatal brain seizure. This is another troubling sign that our fatally flawed 44th president is fated by Providence to meet with a tragic end in the physical sense or a tragically failed presidency, one of the worst in our history, hence:
November 22, 2007 to May 17, 2008 (Kennedy’s collapse)=177 days.
7. West Point, Vietnam and Afghanistan and the Number 177
John Kennedy addressed West Point on the Vietnam War on June 6, 1962. Obama addressed West Point on the Afghan War 47 years later on December 2, 2009. The number of days separating their speeches were 17,346 a number that is a multiple of 177 98x. Not a very good omen for Barack Obama and the Afghan War, hence:
June 6, 1962 (JFK’s West Point Speech) to December 2, 2009 (Obama’s West Point Speech)=47 years, 5 months and 26 days=17,346 days.
8. The Day Ted Kennedy Died
Ted Kennedy died 217 days into the Obama administration and 21 days after Barack Obama’s 48th birthday. The numbers 21 and 217 (multiples of 7) are factors of the highly significant number 1953. 1953 is significant because it indicates the year that John F. Kennedy began his career in the US Senate*.
*JFK was sworn in as senator on January 3, 1953.
Moreover, upon Ted Kennedy’s death he had spent a total of 46 years in the US Senate the life span of his brother John (whose Senate seat he won) and Obama‘s age when the Kennedys endorsed his candidacy.
*46 years, 9 months and 18 days.
Furthermore, John Kennedy entered the Senate in the waning days of the Truman administration; Ted Kennedy exited the Senate and this life in the early days of the Obama administration. Obama like Truman is a doublet number president, Truman being 33 and Obama 44. Every US president with doublet numbers, all Democrats, were one term presidents*.
*Polk (11), Cleveland (22), Truman (33) and Obama (44). Cleveland was also the 24th president having been a single term president twice.
And lastly, just as the 2008 presidential race was the 56th in our history Barack Obama's victory on November 4 was exactly 56 years to the date of John Kennedy's victory in the Massechusetts Senate race*"
*Kennedy defeated Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. on November 4, 1952.
CONCLUSION: THE FATAL STAR OF SOCIALISM
What was believed by the revolutionary Left to symbolize a brave new dawn of peace and justice for humanity became instead a bloodred star of death and destruction for millions.
The powerful bonds traced in this work between Barack Obama, JFK and his tragically fortunate family prophetically anticipates, I believe, an ill starred and tragically failed presidency perhaps of Kennedyesque proportions. However, the manner of Obama’s unfortunate end is impossible for me to divine. Either his presidency will be cut short like Harding’s or Kennedy’s (two senators turned president*) meeting with death by disease, accident or assassination; or he will go the way of LBJ ending his presidency a disillusioned and broken man his dream of “ a more perfect Union (LBJ‘s Great Society)” shattered by the folly of his policies and unwise plans.
*The only two sitting US senators before Obama that were voted into the White House.
But whatever be the manner of Obama’s unhappy end its cause will have nothing to do with a curse passed on by the Kennedy clan. For Obama’s uncanny (karmic) connection to the Kennedys is in reality a Providential sign of his unfortunate destiny; a warning to all that when Barack Obama falls it should not be seen as a random event or the work of some dark governmental or right wing conspiracy but as the Decree and Will of Heaven; decreed for the greater good of our Republic and its unfinished mission of freedom and justice in the world.
Indeed, if the Kennedys had backed Hillary Clinton in the primaries and Obama won his party’s nomination and the presidency all the same his fortunes would have remained unchanged, no different than they are now. For “character is destiny” as Heraclitus said; and like many of the fallen Kennedys who thought themselves “invincibly blessed, above human laws and protected by the gods,*“ Obama’s character is fatally flawed blindly driven to ruination by hubris, arrogance, ignorance and lies.
*Quoted from an author whose name escapes me.
But what makes Obama’s presidency especially cursed is that it operates under the baneful power of a fatal star; not a so-called “evil” planet such as astrologers use in their art; but the baneful star of socialism, “the greatest failed experiment in history;” a deranged ideology of social justice blindly based on feelings of compassion for deprived, oppressed and suffering human beings raised to an absolute principle of justice and solution for everything. It is this bankrupt ideology at war with God and man, at odds with America’s founding ideas, based on the fallacy of man’s right to material equality, that’s determining Obama’s tragic fate. Barack Obama is a sacrificial lamb destined to come to a grievous end for the good of the nation; to discredit the political and cultural Left, end the domestic ideological civil war and win the existential struggle with radical Islam; a sacrifice to waken America from sleep, forgetfulness and loss of faith and restore the spirit of truth, justice and liberty, the moral, cultural and philosophical traditions that made this country great. That is what’s at stake and why Obama’s tragic fate will work out for the best bringing renewal to America, victory over evil, long term prosperity and glorious success.
THE DEATH OF TED SORENSEN AND OTHER THOUGHTS ON THE NUMBER 23
Postscript: Martha Coakley's Defeat and the Fate of Obama's Egalitarian Dreams (Added January 20)
Was it accidental irony or Providence in motion that a Massachusetts Senate seat held by Democrats for over half a century beginning with John Kennedy in 1953 was lost to a Kennedy backed candidate born that very year? For Martha Coakley came into this world on July 14, 1953 exactly 192 days into JFK's Senate career*.
Is it accidental irony or a Providential sign of coming success for Republicans in 2010 and 12 that the number 192 when multiplied by ten gives us the year 1920? For 1920 was a banner year for the GOP when they added the 29th Presidency to their control of Capital Hill, in what was to be an Era of Normalcy following the radical Wilson years.
And was it accident or Providence that the day Martha Coakley's birth on July 14, 1953 fell on the 164th anniversary of the French Revolution, the first egalitarian revolution in history of which Obama is heir? Could this be the last of many ominous signs denoting the fate of Obama's statist plans and egalitarian dream to Europeanize and Frenchify our capitalist country and make everything politically correct and green? Of this I have no doubt.
*January 3, 1953 (the start of JFK's Senate career) to July 14, 1953 (Martha Coakly's birth)=192 days.
1. Novak was a convert to Catholicism from Judaism.
2. Prior to Obama’s victory three Democrats from Illinois, born or residing there, ran for the presidency and failed: Stephen Douglas, William Jennings Bryan three times and Adlai Stevenson twice.
3. In my work “Barack Obama: Transformational President or Fortune’s Tragic Fool ? (see) I noted that the number 58 was a multiple of 1914 (58x33) the ominous year that ushered in World War I the “war to end all wars,” the war that foreshadowed the more deadly global conflict of World War II. In “Obama Maharaj Ji (see)” I noted that Obama’s “ A More Perfect Union Speech” coincided with the 139th anniversary of Neville Chamberlain’s birth*; and in “Biden Does Munich 2009 (see)” I noted that the administration’s first overseas conference on global security and foreign affairs was held at Munich, Germany on the 38th day of the year, a number corresponding to the ominous year 1938 when Hitler at Munich turned Neville Chamberlain into one of history’s biggest and deadliest fools. Following the Chamberlain analogy it appears that Obama’s dangerously weak, irresolute, politically correct presidency (he‘s perceived internationally as a “pushover“) is likely to turn the wars we are waging in Iraq and Afghanistan into much wider and more devastating conflicts.
*This was the first powerful sign of the Chamberlain-like role Obama was destined to play on the world stage.
4. John McCain was married to Cindy on May 17, 1980.
5. Upon losing the Democratic primary to Jimmy Carter Ted Kennedy in his concession speech uttered the famous words “the dream lives on,” meaning the socialist dream of economic equality which had little or nothing to do with JFK’s world view as he was a tax cutting supply sider in economics and a patriotic nationalist strong on national security and defense. As the Kennedy family moved leftward in their politics JFK became a leftist icon in the liberal imagination.
6. It is interesting to note that the number of days separating Obama’s 47th birthday and Election Day were 92. This is interesting because 92 is a factor in the number 1104 which gives us the date of Election Day, 11-04, hence:
August 4, 2008 (Obama’s 47th birthday) to November 4, 2008 (Election Day)=92 days.
This I believe is a Providential sign that 2008 was precisely the right time in history for Obama to run for the presidency. There are many numeric signs indicating this for McCain which I will explore in “The Rise and Fall of Barack Obama” as McCain was a providential candidate whose candidacy has oracular significance for the challenging times ahead.
7. See Robert Novak’s “Prince of Darkness,” page 265).
8. When the important date August 28, 2008 is broken down into single digits and counted up it yields the number 28, hence:
On this date 44 years earlier the assassinated Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King gave his “I Have a Dream Speech” in Washington DC. It was also the day following the 100th anniversary of LBJ’s birth. I will have more to say on this in “The Rise and Fall of Barack Obama”.
Finally, MLK was assassinated on the date of April 4th. April being the 4th month gives us the numbers 4/4.
9. It is interesting to note that FDR’s and JFK’s victories occurred on November 8th 28 years apart and that 28 years prior to 1932 and 28 years after 1960 bring us to the elections of Theodore Roosevelt in 1904 and George H. W. Bush in 1988. The Roosevelts, Kennedys and Bushes are three of the four most powerful political families, or “dynasties” in American history.
