The Obama Presidency & Fallen Black Leaders: Behind the “8” Ball


President Barack Obama has either come down with a case of octophobia or is acting on advice he received from a spiritual advisor and is intensely getting rid of any Black leader that has any connection to the number 8:

  • Congresswoman Maxine Waters of the 35th congressional district of California is currently under investigation for possible criminal and unethical conduct. She is currently 71 years old and was born on August 15, 1938. Her connection to the number 8 is more extensive than the others covered in this article. Waters represents the 35th congressional district in California. 35=3+5=8.  She is 71 years old and 7+1=8.  Waters’ birth date gives us: 8+15+1+9+3+8=44. 44 is considered a master number and is usually not reduced to a single digit but it bears pointing out that “44”=”4+4=8″.
  • Shirley Sherrod, who was forced to resign from her position at the USDA due to doctored videotape of a speech she gave at a NAACP event. She is 62 years old. 6+2=8.
  • Charlie Rangel under investigation for ethics violations, a member of the now fading “Harlem’s Gang of Four” is being directed unofficially to resign. Rangel is 80 years old.  8+0=8.
  • David Paterson, the 55th and first African-American as well as visually impaired governor of New York State, receives no visible support from the Obama administration in his efforts to remain in office. It is suggested in the media, that Obama would prefer someone else (Andrew Cuomo) in Paterson’s place. Paterson’s birth date is May 20, 1954. May 20, 1954= 5+20+1+9+5+4=44. Though not reduced to a single digit number because it is considered a master number, “44” = 4+4=8.
  • Bill Thompson, the 42nd Comptroller of New York receives very little support from the Obama administration in his bid to unseat incumbent mayor Michael Bloomberg. Thompson’s birth date is on July 10, 1953. This gives us: 7+10+1+9+5+3=35=3+5=8.
  • Van Jones, noted environmental activist is forced out a position in the Obama administration due to supposed remarks about 911 led to his quick exit. His birth date is September 20, 1968=9+20+1+9+6+8=53=5+3=8.

The number 8 is a number used in religious and spiritual areas of influence to indicate “new beginnings” and “covenant”.  In Chinese thought, the number 8 is said to be “good luck”.

The Kabbalah identifies the properties of the number 8 as “reconstruction, death, negation, decay, loss, extinction, and going out”.

Thus 8 is connected to baptism, circumcision and resurrection. In the game of pool, the “8” ball is the sole black ball of the collection of pool balls. After a given player has only the “8” ball left  and  the white ball sinks the “8” ball  a new game can begin. In the game of pool the  expression  “Behind The Eight Ball” means to be in a difficult or baffling situation. 

The Neo Nazi movement uses “88” to denote Heil Hitler due to the fact the letter H is the 8th letter of the alphabet. With the Neo Nazi the number “88” is used in their murder rituals of members of groups they despise.

African-American leaders would do themselves a favor to be very careful in their dealings for they are literally and figuratively “behind the 8 ball” with the Obama administration.
