Tuesday night on The Factor Bill O'Reilly commenting on the unsurprising, anticipated-by-many, prayed-for-by-Rush, failure and collapse of Barack Obama's incompetent, radical left, Worse-Than-Watergate presidency likened his second term to that of Civil War hero Ulysses S. Grant's whose Republican administration, as O'Reilly said, "fell apart" because (like Obama) he was disengaged or "missing in action" and "didn't pay attention" to all the corruption going on under his nose (see).
This wasn't the first time O'Reilly made this comparison, and he's not the only one to do so (see). But all the same , the Obama/Grant comparison didn't surprise me as I had discovered many signs and portents before, during, and shortly after the 2012 presidential race auguring that Obama's second term would be the most disastrous and scandal plagued since Ulysses S. Grant's. Indeed, apart from the unmistakable signs of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's arrest 35 days after Obama's election (for trying to sell his senate seat), and the death of George McGovern (target of the Watergate break in) between Obama's reelection and the Benghazi coverup and protection scandal, the following omens related to Grant prefigured Obama's corrupt, mendacious, inept, Chicagoland administration that seems to worsen by the day as it heads towards complete ignominy.
For when Obama was elected president on the historic night of November 4, 2008 he delivered his victory speech to a delirious crowd of 250,000 which ominously started not on the 4th but just past midnight (12:02 am) on November 5th (see and see). What was ominous and seemingly providential about the speech's timing was that November 5th was the 136th anniversary of President Grant's reelection in 1872....as if signifying that Obama's second term (if he should have one) would in essence be as bad as, if not worse than, Grant's .
But that the speech delivered on the 5th instead of the 4th was not mere happenstance but a meaningful coincidence with Grant's reelection anniversary pointing to a hugely corrupt Democrat administration is suggested by the ominous place where it was given. For the speech that night was delivered at none other than Chicago's GRANT PARK named after the victorious Civil War general who (like Obama) was a miserable failure as president. Moreover, Grant like Obama was a citizen of Illinois; and when Grant in 1868 won the GOP presidential nomination the Republican National Convention was held in the city of CHICAGO- today the most politically corrupt city in the nation and Obama's hometown (see).
Amazingly, as Obama delivered his 2008 victory speech on November 5th at Grant Park (on the 136th anniversary of Grant's reelection) the number of days separating his date of birth from his reelection victory on November 6, 2012 gives us a five digit number strangely encoded with the year of Grant's reelection, hence:
August 4, 1961 (Obama's birth) to November 6, 2012 is 51 years, 3 months and 2 days, or exactly 18722 days- whose first four digits gives us the year 1872 when Grant was unluckily elected to a 2nd term (see).
THE DEATH OF MADELYN DUNHAM
But the signs related to Grant get worse. On November 3rd (in the continental US)* approximately one day before his election in 2008 Obama received tragic news from Hawaii that his 86 year old maternal grandmother Madelyn Dunham died from ovarian cancer that she'd been battling for years. The news of her death stunned the nation with some Obama supporters losing heart fearing it was a portent of coming defeat. But Dunham's death meant no such thing; instead, what now seemed to be hidden at the time was that November 3, 2008 was an omen related to Ulysses S. Grant. For the date of Durham's death fell on the 140th anniversary of Grant's election in 1868.
* Dunham passed away on November 2nd between the hours of 11 pm and 12 am Hawaiin time which was November 3rd everywhere else in the US (see).
Indeed, that Dunham should live a long life of 86 years (more than 31,000 days), spanning the 47 years of her grandson's existence where she saw him rise from obscurity to political prominence and within inches of seizing the presidency, but didn't stay alive just one day more to experience the joy and blessing of her grandson's historic victory (which would've made her the proudest grandmother on earth) seems like a cruel act of fate.
But as Madelyn Dunham died on the anniversary of Grant's presidential election it now seems more like a providential sign that her grandson's presidency would be anything but a joy and blessing to the nation; and that like Grant he'd fail and fail badly disgracing himself and dishonoring his office by presiding over a cesspool of corruption, coverups, broken promises and lies-and would leave office, like the unfortunate Grant, with the nation in far worse shape than on the day he won election.
GRANT'S GREAT DEPRESSION
Indeed, the epically failed, scandal-ridden presidency of Ulysses S. Grant is overshadowing the Obama White House as it turns into a hell-house losing its moral authority and credibilty with a disillusioned public pesssimistic about the future; and as we are a nation in steep decline with a contracting economy verging on a double dip recession (due mostly to Obama's demoralizing leadership, government supremacism, war on free enterprise, and regressive taxation, debt, and regulatory policies) it is chilling to note that the US economy in Grant's second term collapsed into a long, gueling five year depression triggered by a financial crisis (see).
FROM THE NEW LINCOLN TO THE NEW GRANT
It is incedibily ironic that the man who started his bid for the presidency in Springfield, Illinois, where Lincoln gave his House Divided speech, and took his oath of office on Lincoln's Bible is morphing into Lincoln's victorius general who gave this country the worst two term presidency in its history.
