MYSTERY POTUS: Waiting in the West Wing
With so much attention being focused on the Democratic Party debates and campaigns for the past six months, many people overlooked the obvious. Someone not even running for office has a better chance of becoming POTUS 46 than any of the candidates who spent millions of dollars on failed campaigns.
As any president knows, his vice-president is only a heartbeat away from the presidency, so the pick must be well-considered. Over the course of U.S. history nine vice-presidents ascended to the presidency due to the death or resignation of their boss.
Four presidents died in office from illness or disease, four died in office from assassination, and one resigned. This represents nearly 20 percent, or one out of four. One interesting note is that this group includes the shortest serving president and the longest serving president. Chronologically, it unfolded in this way.
Eight presidents served before the first death of a president while in office.
William Henry Harrison (POTUS 9) who died from typhoid or pneumonia 31 days into his presidency, became the first to die in office, and known for having served the shortest term. His vice-president, John Tyler, became POTUS 10.
Following that, only one president (POTUS 11) served until the next death of a president while in office. A later post reveals interesting details about the numerical fingerprint of POTUS 11, James K. Polk.
Zachary Taylor (POTUS 12) died from stomach illness 16 months into his presidency. His vice-president, Millard Fillmore became POTUS 13.
Two presidents (POTUS 14 and POTUS 15) served until the next death of a president while in office.
Abraham Lincoln (POTUS 16) died from a gunshot wound to the head, resulting in Andrew Johnson becoming POTUS 17.
Two presidents (POTUS 18 and POTUS 19) served until the next death of a president while in office.
James Garfield (POTUS 20) died less than a year into his first term from infection related to a gunshot wound. Chester Arthur became POTUS 21.
Two presidents served until the next death of a president in office: POTUS 22 who also served as POTUS 24, and POTUS 23. Three presidencies, two presidents. A later post reveals interesting details about the numerical fingerprint of POTUS 22/24, Grover Cleveland.
William McKinley (POTUS 25) died from a gunshot wound in his fourth year in office. His first vice-president was Garret Hobart, then he went for several years without a vice-president, until Theodore Roosevelt only six months earlier, who became POTUS 26.
Two presidents (POTUS 27 and POTUS 28) served until the next death of a president while in office.
Warren Harding (POTUS 29) died of a heart attack, and his vice-president, Calvin Coolidge became POTUS 30. Note: 2+9=11.
One president (POTUS 31) served until the next death of a president while in office.
Franklin D. Roosevelt (POTUS 32) died from a cerebral hemorrhage within weeks of beginning his fourth term, making him the longest serving president. Harry Truman, who had become Roosevelt’s third vice-president only three months earlier, became POTUS 33. As master number presidents POTUS 11 and POTUS 22 will be reviewed, we look at the numerical fingerprint of POTUS 33.
One president (POTUS 34) served until the next death of a president while in office.
John F. Kennedy (POTUS 35) died from a gunshot wound to the head on November 22, 1963 (11/22). His vice-president Lyndon B. Johnson became POTUS 36.
No president served until the next Vice-POTUS to POTUS transfer, the first and only to not involve death by illness or assassination.
Richard Nixon (POTUS 37) resigned from office causing his second vice-president, Gerald Ford, to become POTUS 38 (3+8=11).
Fortunately, the country has not encountered a national tragedy involving the loss of a leader for half a century, likely due to improved Secret Service, surveillance, and security procedures.
On the front-end of the POTUS line, eight presidents served without the death or resignation of a president while in office. Over time, a pattern emerges where we see only one or two presidents between such a transition. We are now in a similarly long period with a count of seven: POTUS 39, POTUS 40, POTUS 41, POTUS 42, POTUS 43, POTUS 44, and POTUS 45.
Recall that POTUS 45 is the oldest person to become president, currently at age 73 and soon to turn 74 (7+4=11). With a deadly and highly-contagious virus on the loose that seems to favor the elderly, anyone mingling with as many people as a president does on a given day certainly puts himself at greater risk than the average person. Additionally, the level of stress must be physically demanding no matter at what age.
During some of the Democratic presidential debates, political rivals of POTUS 45 declared numerous times and in various ways that “the most dangerous president in modern history” must be removed from office at all costs and re-election avoided by whatever means necessary. While impeachment proceedings aired on national television failed to accomplish that, random citizens who disagree with POTUS 45 seem to casually toss around curses and threats. Being a human punching bag comes with the territory, and long gone are the days of support for a leader if even you disagree.
Unfortunately, this type of rhetoric causes one to wonder what nefarious actions may be at play that could lead to a mystery illness, accident, or outright assassination, resulting in the vice-president becoming POTUS 46. Or the current POTUS could resign for whatever reason, passing the torch on to his right-hand man.
No matter what the cause of departure, such an event results in turmoil, confusion, and nationwide grieving for the loss of a president and general sadness for the country. With a general feeling of the country already in turmoil and confusion, this is the last thing we need.
I reiterate that I wish no harm or ill will upon anyone. I present this information simply as a reminder of a repetitive, unfortunate fact of U.S. history.
Michael Richard Pence 48th U.S. Vice-President
During the 2016 election, this former governor of Indiana ran his own campaign for president, confirming his aspirations for the top spot. However, he ended up on the Trump/Pence ticket as the Republican party nominees, and ultimate victors.
Mr. Pence has a Birth Date that equals a 1, which is the number of new beginnings and leadership. If POTUS 45 secures a second term, and Vice-President Pence holds on to his job, he would be a likely candidate for POTUS 46 in 2024. He would be age 65 (6+5=11) at the time of the 2024 election, and would celebrate his 66th birthday while in office, both master number ages. Note: Vice-President Pence and President Trump have birthdays one week apart.
- BIRTH DATE = 37/10/1
- VOWELS = 35/8 (full), no reduced figure as all numbers associated with vowles already single digits
- CONSONANTS = 120/3 (full), 66 (reduced)
- FIRST NAME = 51/6 (full), 33 (reduced)
- MIDDLE NAME = 61/7 (full), 43/7 (reduced)
- LAST NAME = 43/7 (full), 25/7 (reduced)
- FULL NAME TOTAL (15 letters) = 155/11 (full), 11 (reduced)
- MOST COMMON NUMBER(S) = four each of 3, 5, and 9
- LEAST COMMON OR MISSING NUMBERS = one 7 with missing numbers 2 and 6
This numerical fingerprint presents several master numbers, found with the First Name of 33, Full Name Total of 11, and Consonant Total of 66.
Although his full first name is Michael, Vice-President Pence is often referred to as Mike. The name Mike has a total of 38/11 (full) and 29/11 (reduced). Whether Mike or Michael, the result is a mastser number.
This numerical fingerprint shows an abundance of 3, 5, and 9. Three of the 5s, represented by E and N, are found in the five-letter last name. The numerical value of the remaining letters P and C is 10, which is 5+5. Five is the number for freedom and change. With few or none of 2, 6, and 7, a Last Name total and Middle Name total of 7 could compensate for that. Otherwise 2 and 6 may point to areas of weakness.
Overall, this numerical fingerprint identifies someone who possesses POTUS-worthy potential. In recent weeks, the vice-president has emerged from the West Wing to head the task force coordinating COVID-19 efforts across the nation. This development presents the risk of grave mistakes that could destroy any chances for a 2024 victory. Conversely, the Vice-POTUS has been presented with an opportunity to demontrate his ability to lead and delegate during times of crisis, coordinate massive scale operations, and communicate clearly and calmly should he be thrust unexpectedly into the role of POTUS.
If such a transition occurs before the November 2020 election, Pence would be the 10th vice-president to assume the presidency in this way. The 2020 presidential election would then be for POTUS 47 (4+7=11).
Upcoming posts look at top candidates determined to become the party nominee with the primary goal of unseating POTUS 45. This will include lesser-known candidates still in the running, and some of those who recently suspended their campaign. Do any among them present a numerical fingerprint worthy of the title POTUS?
My reviews of the numerical fingerprints remain nonpartisan, unbiased, without regard to policies or personality. I could provide an analysis of what I think it means, but wish to avoid appearing critical, judgmental, or showing favoritism to influence one way or another. For your convenience, refer to common interpretations below, or seek out other sources. You may cross-reference any numbers you consider significant and arrive at your own conclusions.
- BIRTH DATE = Life Path to reveal opportunities, challenges, lessons
- VOWELS = Heart’s Desire
- CONSONANTS = Authentic Self
- FIRST NAME = Personality
- LAST NAME = Traits
- FULL NAME TOTAL = Destiny or Expression
- MOST COMMON NUMBERS = Strengths
- LEAST COMMON OR MISSING NUMBERS = Weaknesses
|5||freedom and change|
