‘Out Of The Office’ And The ’20-Year Presidential Curse’


“I will be out of the office from August 15th-August 22nd,” read the email returned to Fox News. Instead, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s reply directs the press to reach out to other press officers in her absence.

Fox News sent questions to Psaki’s White House email address Sunday morning and received an auto-reply. Hours later, on Sunday evening, Fox News attempted once again to reach the White House spokeswoman. The same auto-reply, stating that the voice of the White House would not be available for the next week, was sent.

President Biden Remains On Vacation While Kabul Falls

The lightening fast take-over of Kabul should have immediately sent Biden back to the White House to insure at the very least that all Americans stuck in the country can find a way to return home. But instead, we are shown a picture of Biden watching the news while on vacation at Camp David.

The 20-Year Presidential Curse

The Curse of Tippecanoe (also known as T20-Year Presidential Curse) is the supposed pattern of deaths in office of presidents of the United States who won the elections in years that are evenly divisible by 20,[1] since the 1840 election. Because of the timing of presidential elections, these are also those taking place in years ending with 0. The presidents fitting this description were William Henry Harrison (elected in 1840), Abraham Lincoln (1860), James A. Garfield (1880), William McKinley (1900), Warren G. Harding (1920), Franklin D. Roosevelt (1940) and John F. Kennedy (1960).

Ronald Reagan (1980) was seriously wounded by gunshot, but survived more than 15 years after his second term. George W. Bush (2000) survived his terms in office, despite an assassination attemptThomas Jefferson (1800) and James Monroe (1820) preceded the supposed curse, and outlived their presidencies by 17 and 6 years, respectively.

The 2020 Presidential Election Spelled Trouble For Joe Biden

This was the first election since 1992 (and the fifth in the past century) in which the incumbent president failed to win a second term. Was it a fair election or was there voter fraud? The Democrats deny any wrongdoing and so Joe Biden became the 46th President. But it looks like the 20-Year Presidential Curse has returned with a vengeance. This became more and more obvious from the time Biden took office.

Joe Biden’s Cognitive Decline

When we think about the 20-year Presidential Curse, one of the events that rarely comes to mind is something that we are witnessing responsible for Joe Biden’s poor performance. But the Democratic Party is refusing to admit the obvious – Joe Biden is having a very difficult time when speaking in public, which is raising serious questions about his cognitive health.

Combine this with other problems such as the disastrous decision to open the Southern Border, his refusal to put a stop to the major rise in crime and violence, Democratic support for the “Defund The Police” movement as well as the sharp rise in consumer prices sending inflation skyrocketing, to name a few, are all turning out to be a disaster.

The 20 Year Curse Extends Beyond The White House                                          

The Resignation Of NY Governor Andrew Cuomo

In a dramatic fall from grace, Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday Aug 10 surrendered to the many calling for his impeachment, by announcing that he will resign in two weeks.

Kathleen Courtney Hochul (/ˈhoʊkəl/ HOH-kull; born August 27, 1958) is an American politician and lawyer serving as lieutenant governor of New York since 2015. She is to become the 57th governor of New York upon Andrew Cuomo‘s resignation, scheduled for August 24, 2021, which would make her the first female governor of New York.

She said during her news conference the day after Cuomo announced his intention to resign that she never considered herself close with the Governor. And that once she took office she would make sure that confidence in the NY Governor’s office would be restored.

Jen Psaki May Have Uttered The Words That Will Become A Reality In The Very Near Future

“I will be out of the office” will most likely apply to President Biden in the not too distant future for failure to perform his duties during the time of crises in not only Afghanistan but with regard to his responsibilities as President of the United States.

All Americans should now voice their concern and demand change that will restore integrity to the Office Of The US President. If this is not done, America’s future is in danger.

Parshat Shoftim

The fact that this has all taken place during the week when we read about the need for a viable legal system, judges and those responsible for enforcing those laws in Parshat Shoftim is very significant
