On January 20, 1981, 20 minutes after Ronald Reagan was sworn in as the 40th President of the United States, the humiliating, agonizing Iran Hostage Crisis came to a sudden and unexpected end. Having started on November 4, 1979 (nine months into the Iranian Revolution) it lasted for 1 year, 2 months, and 17 days or 444 days (see). And since that memorable day the triplet number 444 became for this country a numeric symbol and sign of that crisis; a crisis ultimately caused by Reagan's predecessor Jimmy Carter a man of staggering stupidity and blindness who let himself be duped by the radical Shiite cleric Ayatollah Khomeini into thinking he was a Jeffersonian democrat wanting to replace the oppressive (but progressive) pro-Western constitutional monarchy of Shah Reza Pahlavi with a free and open Western type parliamentary democracy protecting the rights of minorities and women.
The Shah who banished Khomeini from Iran because of his subversive activities to overthrow his rule desperately tried to reason with Carter that he was being lied to and deceived and would live to regret it. He told Carter the truth about Khomeini: that he was a regressive, reactionary, Shiite fundamentalist who'd replace his progressive, modernizing pro-Western regime (an enlightened monarchy by 18th century standards) with a brutal, oppressive, anti-Western medieval theocracy where Khomeini would be both Pope and King uniting the powers of church (mosque) and state in an absolute totalitarian dictatorship based on the 7th century Median model of the Prophet Mohammed.
But Carter ignored the Shah. Listening instead to reports that Khomeini was a "saintly man of God," a "Moslem Mahatma Gandhi"and "peace loving democratic reformer" who wouldn't hurt a fly, Carter withdrew his support from the Shah (who fled to Egypt) and let Khomeini come to power. But in doing so (as the Shah warned) Carter midwifed the anti-American, freedom hating Iranian Revolution which made the Koran, Sharia Law and Jihad (war against all infidels) the basis of a new Iran far more oppressive and unjust than the Shah's regime. Indeed, no sooner did Khomeini seize power becoming Iran's Supreme Leader (Allah's absolute agent on Earth) than he viciously turned on America and Jimmy Carter. Demonizing our country as the "Great Satan," and enemy of Allah, Islam and all that's holy and good, Khomeini sent hundreds and thousands of his followers into the streets of Tehran chanting "Death to America!" as they burned US flags and Carter in effigy. From the start of Khomeini's murderous, fanatical, jihadist regime ("war is good" is one of his famous sayings) there was a constant drum beat of anti-American propaganda and hate until November 4, 1979 disaster struck: a militant gang of pro-Khomeini college students stormed the US embassy in Tehran, and with Khomeini's blessing held our diplomats hostage while he ridiculed us daily as powerless, pathetic and weak.
The hostage crisis was an act of Islamic Jihad (holy war) against the United States; it was the first such act since the Barbary Wars of the early 19th century when US merchantmen were captured by Islamic pirates and were either held hostage for ransom or put in chains the slaves of Moslem masters.
Therefore, the triplet number 444 in one respect is a symbol of evil* for our country-the evil of an implacable Islamic supremacist regime at war with America, modernity, and democratic freedom as inspired by the Koran** and the radical jihadist teachings of the Ayatollah Khomeini.
*On the other hand, the freeing of the hostages during Reagan's inaugural was very definitely an auspicious sign that Reagan's strong, unwavering anti-communist leadership would defeat the Soviet Union and liberate millions from its tyranny. Indeed, when multiplied by 4 444 gives us the number 1776 the year of America's revolutionary founding and liberation from Great Britain.
**The Koran is made up of 114 books, and this number 114 gives us the date 11-4 when the Koran inspired Iranian Hostage Crisis began.
But now 36 years into the dreadful jihadist Iranian Revolution and on the fatal date of July 14th (the anniversary of the terrifying, murderous French Revolution) in Vienna-a city once occupied by Nazi troops-and in a hotel (The Imperial) where the victorious Adolf Hitler stayed to celebrate his peaceful conquest of Austria, the worst, weakest and blindest US President since Jimmy Carter finalized a dangerous deal with genocidal Islamonazi Iran on its illegal nuclear weapons program. And strangely on that very day, as you shall see, the ominous number 444 providentially I believe reappeared connecting the day of Barack Obama's ill-starred election to his Munich-like nuke deal with Iran, portending great evil and woe for our country, the Middle East and world.
But before I venture into this it needs be said that the number 4, for whatever reason, as you will see, is the most significant and meaningful number in Barack Obama's political life; and is strangely written all over his policies and dealings with radical supremacist Shiite Iran. Here is what I mean.
THE 4TH DAY OF NOVEMBER
Obama, who was born on the 4th day of August 1961 (44 years after the Russian Revolution*) was elected 44th President on November 4, 2008 (the 44th week of the year) which ominously landed on the 29th anniversary of the Iran Hostage Crisis which painfully lasted for 444 days. Clearly, as you will see below, the day of Obama's election prefigured (as I predicted it would here) that Obama would be as weak and foolish in dealing with Iran as was hapless, gutless, senseless Jimmy Carter. And that Obama would surpass Carter as the greatest and most dangerous enabler of Iranian power.
THE 4TH MONTH OF APRIL
OBAMA BREAKS WITH BUSH ADMINISTRATION OVER IRAN
On the 8th* day of the 4th month of April 2009, following an Iran policy review, the Obama administration made its first fatal mistake with Iran by announcing it would participate fully in the P5+1 talks with them (see). This was a departure from the Bush administration’s policy requiring Iran to first meet UN demands to stop uranium enrichment before directly engaging in talks. Indeed, Obama's God awful, dangerous, legacy driven, appeasement nuclear deal, which greatly enhances the wealth and power of an aggressive, expansionary, totalitarian terror state (a de facto nuclear power via its "Axis of Evil" partner North Korea, see) began with this foolish policy change.
*8 is a multiple of 4 twice, or 4+4.
THE 4TH DAY OF JUNE IN THE 4TH MONTH OF OBAMA'S PRESIDENCY
HIS MOSLEM OUTREACH INITIATIVE TO IRAN
Now excatly 4 months and 16* (see) Barack Obama on the 4th day of June delivered his historic "New Beginning" speech in Cairo reaching out to the Islamic world in an attempt to heal US/Moslem relations which had been damaged during the Bush years. But as if it were a sign warning that his Mideast policies would achieve no such thing, that instead they'd greatly benefit Iran and exacerbate the regional conflict between Sunni and Shia started during the Bush years**, the date of the speech ominously fell on the 26th anniversary of Ali Khamenei succeeding his mentor Ayatollah Khomeini as the supreme religious and political head of Iran (see). Indeed, in retrospect and unplanned it seems that the "New Beginning" was mostly to benefit Iran as no Moslem country in the region has gained more from Obama. For Obama's policies on pro-Iran Iraq (premature withdrawal of our troops), pro-Iran Syria (non-intervention in the civil war) and Iran's nuclear weapons program (the lifting of sanctions, unfreezing of assets and giving them a pathway to a bomb) have enabled its power, wealth and military strength at the expense of US influence in the region and the power of the Sunni Moslem states (see).
* 16 is multiple of 4 4 times, or 4 squared (4x4).
**The Iraq War Resolution or H J Res 114 (giving us the number of books in the Koran and the date of the Iran Hostage Crisis) was passed by Congress on 10-10-2002. Amazingly, that day was the 1322nd anniversary of the Battle of Karbala in present day Iraq-the first battle between Sunnis and Shiites in history (see and see). You can't make this stuff up.
OBAMA'S 144TH DAY IN OFFICE
IRAN'S GREEN MOVEMENT
But no sooner did Obama give his speech than 8 days later on June 12th* (the 144th day of the Obama administration, see) a rigged presidential election in Iran, which gave the unpopular Ahmadenijad a second term as president, caused massive protests in Tehran and across the country. Called the Green Movement it was violently suppressed with thousands of arrests and many deaths by police and government militia forces (see). But instead of rallying to the cause of freedom, as Ronald Reagan did for Lech Walesa and Poland's Solidarity Movement (see), Obama instead "ignored the Green Party's request for financial and other aid..... and squandered the opportunity to undermine the government," as Rick Santorum said (see). Indeed, Obama feared to vigorously speak out against the government crackdown least he rub the mullahs the wrong way and hurt his chances of kowtowing and appeasing his way to getting a nuke deal for his legacy
*12 is a multiple of 4 thrice, or 4+4+4.
THE 4TH MONTH OF 2015
THE FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT
On the 2nd day of the 4th month of April of this year (the 2264th* day of the Obama presidency, see), after 8 grueling days of negotiations Obama and Iran reached a framework agreement for containing its nuclear weapons program-which it continued to deny having. Oddly, the deadline date for these talks was March 31st. But the deadline was reached without an agreement and talks carried over into the 4th month of April. Indeed, thIs foolish framework was agreed upon on April 1st, April Fool's Day. But to avoid all the ridicule of announcing it then it was postponed to the following day.
* 2264 is the 64th number of the 2200 series. 64 is the cube of 4 or 4x4x4.
THE 2444TH DAY
BLOCKING IRAN'S 4 PATHWAYS TO A NUCLEAR BOMB?
Iran, of course (as I mentioned above), has a fifth pathway to a nuclear bomb with long time, Axis of Evil ally nuclear North Korea. In North Korea Iran can covertly do all of the above, and Barack Obama knows it.
This is truly, truly extraordinary and at the same time very frightening. We have seen that as a sign portending terrible things to come with our deadly enemy "Death to America" radical Iran Barack Obama was elected 44th President on the 4th of November 2008. We saw that this date ominously coincided with 29th anniversary of the Iran Hostage Crisis where American diplomats and their staff were held hostage by Iran for 444 days. Now this is the part that frightens me. If I add 2444 days to the date November 4, 2008 (2444 is encoded with the triplet number 444) it brings us to July 14, 2015 the dark day which will live in infamy when Barack Obama, the weakest and worst president since Jimmy Carter (who midwifed the Iranian Revolution that gave us the 444 day hostage crisis) finalized a deal with Islamonazi Iran on its nuclear weapons program.
Keep in mind (as I said above) that the deal was closed at the Imperial Hotel in Vienna where Adolf Hitler stayed in 1938 to celebrate his peaceful conquest of Austria; also keep in mind (as I said) that July 14th was the 226th anniversary of the failed and murderous French Revolution. Oddly, France was a signatory to this terrible deal. And France was the place where the Ayatollah Khomeini (founder of Iran's radical jihadlst regime) was living in exile before his return to Iran in early 1979. Could this too have oracular meaning signifying the ultimate failure or downfall of Iran's revolutionary regime? That the nuclear mullahs will miscalculate as a result of this deal and strike our country or Israel and incur the wrath of either or both suffering devastating consequences? Or will the Green Movement rise up again more powerful than before and this time succeed in toppling the evil mullah regime? That is the outcome all of us pray for.
Nevertheless, 444 is a portentous sign that this ill-conceived nuke deal with Iran, and the billions in appeasement funds we are insanely giving to them, will have evil consequences for our country and the region in the short term. For implacable, "Death to America," radical Iran, whether we want to admit it or not, is very much at war with us. What started with the hostage crisis where no Americans died evolved 4 years later into the suicidal terrorist killing of 241 US soldiers at the Marine barracks in Beruit executed by Hezbollah jihadis who Iran to this day honors as holy martyrs (see). Moreover, scores of US servicemen, 500 or more, were killed in Iraq and Afghanistan by Iran backed anti-US forces (see). And despite this "historic" nuke deal Iran's anti-US jihad goes on in Afghanistan as the mulllahs continue to supply the Taliban (and their al Qaida allies?) with arms, ammo, cash and training to kill more of our troops, as reported here.
THE 44TH MONTH OF OBAMA'S PRESIDENCY
It is astonishingly ironic that just three weeks before Obama's ill-starred reelection (it was the 44th month of his presidency, see) that Warner Brothers released Ben Affleck's Acadamy Award winning "Argo" a film about the Iran Hostage Crisis (see).
This outstanding film, so it seems, was an ominous sign that if Obama were reelected president his second term would be as disastrous as Jimmy Carter's first term. And now with Obama's dangerous deal on Iran's nuclear program finalized on the 2444th day after his election (the 29th anniversary of the 444 day hostage crisis) we see that is unfortunately what is happening. The re-Carterization of US foreign policy is now complete. God help us all.

"ALL men by nature desire to know. An indication of this is the delight we take in our senses; for even apart from their usefulness they are loved for themselves; and above all others the sense of sight. For not only with a view to action, but even when we are not going to do anything, we prefer seeing (one might say) to everything else. The reason is that this, most of all the senses, makes us know and brings to light many differences between things.
