Links: | AP | CNN |June 5 (Day 157, Zebulun): Former President Ronald W. Reagan died at his home in Bel Air, California of pneumonia at the age of 93. Reagan was born February 6, 1911, Day 37 in Tampico, Illinois. He became the 40th President of the US after beating Jimmy Carter by a landslide on November 4, 1980, Day 309. Reagan was shot on March 30, 1981, Day 89, but he survived. He left office in 1989.
On inauguration day, the Iran hostage crisis ended after 444 days. He presided over the airliner hijackings and hostage crises of the 80's and the bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut. Reagan was a great American and a good actor. As President, he survived a near-death experience and faced the threat of Iran, Cosmic Babylon, and the Soviet Union, the great bear. And he survived the Iran-Contra scandal. In weakness, he negotiated peace treaties with the Soviet Union. And his military buildup helped bankrupt the Soviet Union.
An orange glow in the Sun set over central Florida marked the spot in the southwest associated with Iran. That spot in the sky is where the weather angels left signs during the hostage crises of the Reagan administration. Tonight after Reagan's passing, they remembered to say good bye. Iran is in the southwestern part of Asia that corresponds to Gad, the raiding band or terrorists.

Smarty Jones, running from post position #9, who was second, became the sixth horse in eight years to lose a chance at the Triple Crown by losing the Belmont. There have been only 11 Triple Crown winners. Royal Assault was third. The time was 2:27.50.
Birdstone with 36-1 odds paid $74, $14 and $8.60. The number, 36 is for Ai.
Three distinct columns of cloud cover that resembled elephants and horses were over the USA. An elephant was over Montana with tail through southern California. A weather elephant stretched from Texas to the Great Lakes. And another column like a horse along the east coast stretched through Florida. An elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal.
Reagan was elected president November 4, 1980, Day 309. The number, 4, represents weakness per the meaning of the year, 2004. The number, 80, is for strength, and 309 is for the Judgment (300) of the Plagues of Egypt. Jimmy Carter had negotiated treaties between Israel and Egypt, and he lost. Today, the favorite, Smarty Jones, running from post position 9 lost to Birdstone in post position 4. The Lord Jesus Christ controls history. Reagan died in Bel Air, at 34 N., for the division of the land, and 118 W., for the witness of a pillar, for maximum historical impact. He was the 40th President, where 40 is for maximum divine discipline. He was shot in his third month in office but survived. His powerful chest muscles and lungs helped save his life. Smarty Jones lost the Belmont Stakes. Bel was the god of Babylon.
Three columns of weather elephants and horses stretched across today's weather map. They represented Ecumenical, Political, and Cosmic Babylon.
Today was June 5, for a giant, such as Baal. And it was Day 157, for Zebulun.
