Threats


"...Obama is believed to be 
the most threatened president 
in U.S. history."

"Mr. Obama has little choice 
but to put his arms around the chaos 
and make the decisions that
involve pain and sacrifice up front."
~ Leon Panetta, 2008

(Panetta was a member of Obama's 2008-9 transition team; Quoted in: Richard E. Nicolazzo, "Obama's new PR playbook: keeping it real," O'Dwyer's PR Report, Vol. 22 No. 12, December 2008, p. 19.)

"Obama Administration Prepping for Social Chaos..." 
(Source: Email from "Lee Bellinger" AmericanLanternAlerts.com, Tuesday, October 2, 2012 7:07 AM. Note: I do not endorse Bellinger's remarks. I merely think that his sentiments, being beamed out through cyberspace, are of symbolic interest.)

For discussions of some relevant, associated symbol patterns, see: here, here, here, and here.

The reader may wish to consider the above information side-by-side with Barack Obama's own "Presidential Memorandum" (issued via the Office of the Press Secretary) in which he mentions "...the National Insider Threat Policy...to promote the development of effective insider threat programs within departments and agencies to deter, detect, and mitigate actions by employees who may represent a threat to national security. These threats encompass potential espionage, violent acts against the Government or the Nation..."

But don't worry. The U.S. government also blogs the following. Quoting NASA scientist David Morrison, to the effect that "At least a once a week I get a message from a young person ― as young as 11 ― who says they are ill and/or contemplating suicide because of the coming doomsday." The U.S. pledges that "Scary Rumors about the World Ending in 2012 Are Just Rumors" (Source).

"Ford restarts Lincoln Motor Co. ... The automaker has not used its full name since the 1950s, an era when it was synonymous with rich but understated luxury" (Source)



All this drama with Ford Motors makes for good theater. And it's coming just in time for the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination and the centennial birthday of the Federal Reserve. See here.



"...Ford is attempting to turn back the clock."

"...Ford wants to give it greater separation from the more mass market Ford 'blue oval'..." (Source)

(White House Blue Room - Image source)


As Jim Brandon reminds listeners in part two of his audio series, "Sirius Rising," among the noteworthy features of the White House is the "Blue Room." "The Blue Room[,]...on the first floor in the White House, ...is distinct for its oval shape." (Source) (There are also rooms associated with green and red.) And, of course, the West Wing of the White House features the famous "Oval Office."


(The King Revivified, Atalanta Fugiens)
(Note that the X-100 "Kennedy Presidential Limousine...was a 1961 Lincoln Continental 4-door convertible. ... Ford Motor Company assembled the car at its Lincoln plant in Wixom, Michigan in January 1961. ... The X-100 was impounded for evidence in the weeks following the assassination on November 22, 1963. Soon after plans were made to modify the car in Cincinnati, Ohio and then return it to Washington D.C. ... [I]t was used occasionally by Presidents Johnson, Nixon, Ford and Carter. The X-100 remained in service until early 1977." Text Source; Image Source)


"The 97-year old luxury brand, synonymous with presidential limos and black Town Cars, is returning to its original name, Lincoln Motor Co. Lincoln hopes the name will help restore the brand's luster..." (Source)

"Lincoln Motor Co. founder Henry Leland — who also started Cadillac — named the company after his hero, Abraham Lincoln." (Source) "Lincoln now has the lowest U.S. sales of any luxury brand...Lincoln is just starting out on a long journey..." (Source)

"The trail leading to the 'Killing of the King' is called the 'Journey of Death.' It is also called the 'Long Journey of the Alchemist," (Source: Jim Brandon, "Sirius Rising," Part 1, Interview with James Shelby Downard. On the "Journey of Death" [Jornada del Muerto] see here and here. On alchemy and Lincoln, see here.)

Notice: This author does not wish any harm on the President. I have both consequentialist and non-consequentialist reasons. With respect to the former sort, and as I have alluded to previously, threatening government officials (in word or action) is simply and obviously bad news for the United States and its people. Echoing Michael Hoffman's trenchant comments elsewhere, prima facie, any person who takes up arms is - consciously or unconsciously - an agent of the system. For those Cryptocrats who seek to replace with a police-state (what remains of) our hard won heritage of liberty are the only beneficiaries of such violence. In reference to the non-consequentialist reasons, let me just say the following, obliquely. Obama's Republican opposition is rumored to include the so-called (or, perhaps,  self-proclaimed) "Religious Right." Such people ought to be broadcasting the message of their professed teacher, Jesus, who said: "But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" (Matthew 5:44, NIV). 

In many ways, we live in something like a Matrix-world or what might be termed a gigantic psychic pressure-cooker. (Alternatively, some have termed it an "open air alchemical laboratory" [cf. here] or a "prison planet.") We need a bit of genuine calm.
