A fox will be elected without speaking one word,
appearing saintly in public living on barley bread,
afterwards he will suddenly become a tyrant
putting his foot on the throats of the greatest men.
Esleu sera Renad ne sonnant mot,
Faisant le faint public vivant pain d'orge,
Tyranniser apres tant a un cop
Mettant a pied des plus grans sus la gorge.

Century 8 - Quatrain 41

REFERS TO BOTH PRESIDENT BUSHS

    W: The impression I got was that the man elected without saying a word was our current President of the United States, George Bush. Nostradamus refers to him as a tyrant because he refuses to look at the overall picture of problems that need to be solved. He concentrates on just one or two things and tries to apply his solution to them, and lets everything else go to pot, so to speak. The situation will become more unstable and thereby contribute to the ease with which the Anti-Christ will take over. He says there is an expression called ''straining at gnats.'' Bush is busy straining at gnats and is not doing anything about the elephants trammeling around, so to speak.
    D: Why would he write a quatrain about someone like Bush?
    W: He says that unknown to the general public, there are events taking place behind the scenes that are very momentous in this regard. Things that will come to light in future years and will ultimately affect the Anti-Christ. He says that during this President's reign it can be a turning point of United States history. It can be turning towards success, or turning toward failure. If the President does not take a look at the overall view, it will be apt to turn toward failure. It is the time frame that is important, rather than the person who is the President, although I cannot understand what he means by ''living on barley bread.'' That's not clear to me.
    D: Focus on the mirror, ask him what he means by that phrase, and have him show you in the mirror.
    W: It's living off the fat of the land.

Ms. Cheetham's book says that an alternate translation of that phrase would be: to feather one's nest. That would also be appropriate to this interpretation.

    D: Why does he call Bush a fox?
    W: Because he's clever. He's manipulated people. He's done what he had to do for the past 20 years to get where he's at now.
    D: It says, ''appearing to be saintly.'' Does that mean he's not what he appears to be?
    W: That's true.
    D: The rest of it is, ''afterwards he will suddenly become a tyrant. Putting his foot on the throats of the greatest men.''
    W: This means that slowly, but surely, individual rights will be taken away from men who believed in their country, and in the justice it stood for. Soon justice, freedom and liberty will no longer be visible. This is what he means by the tyrant.
    D: We think of Bush as being so quiet. (In early 1989.)
    W: Yes, he's quiet like a fox. He is mild-mannered and almost invisible. But he is not thinking clearly about the overall picture; therefore the people of the United States will suffer as a result of his actions. Unfortunately something may happen, sooner than you expect. He says that events are coming to a head very quickly. (Was he referring to the Persian Gulf War which began the next year in 1990?)
    D: In order for Nostradamus to write a quatrain about Bush, do you think he will do something that will set him apart from the other presidents?
    W: Yes. Nostradamus is showing me in the mirror. This is a continuation of some work that was begun by a previous president, and he will continue it through to its completion. This work and intention is to have a majority on the Supreme Court in which laws can be changed and made to suit his own ends and needs, which is the programming of the citizens.
    D: I was thinking of the former president, Ronald Reagan. He appointed new justices to sit on the Supreme Court. Is this what you mean?
    W: Yes. The current president will also have the same options, as more justices that are currently in power will leave the bench.

This, of course, has come true since this information was given in 1989. Also, it was the Supreme Court that chose the 2nd Bush President in the hung-jury election in 2000, not the American people.

    D: That may take a long time to accomplish.
    W: He has the time. He has been patient for along time. This person has been on the outskirts of power for so long that he is in a position now to build himself up to be powerful. Since he's doing all this in a quiet, invisible way, people do not become alarmed about it since they do not see through to the consequences as Nostradamus does. What Bush is trying to accomplish will actually be of ill effect for the United States because it will ultimately be affecting constitutional rights.
    D: The translators have interpreted this quatrain as dealing with one of the Napoleons.
    W: No, it refers to George Bush. The main harm will be nestled in his own country.
    D: I can see how that quatrain could apply to a lot of tyrants down through history.
    W: Well, you must understand, when I hear the quatrain I talk about the first thing that comes to my mind. And when that is explored there are so many probabilities and possibilities that it could very well have also happened in the past or in the future. But the translation that I got was the clear one that was in front of me.
    D: That's probably the one he wants us to know because that will deal with our time period. Does Nostradamus think we should be warned about this president?
    W: That's what all these quatrains are about: warnings of the future, or an awareness of the future.
    D: Then he thinks in time Bush will show that he wants power, and for us to be alert to this?
    W: It will become apparent.
    D: Will manipulation of the Supreme Court be the only thing he will do?
    W: He will attempt many things. He is attempting to convert Democrats that are already in office to Republican.
    D: What purpose would that serve?
    W: It would serve the purpose of numbers in votes, allies. He says this quatrain could have a double meaning. The other meaning would deal with the rule of China. In the mirror on first glance I saw an American flag and the scenario that went with it. And I also saw that this could deal with the ruling party of China.
    D: Do you want to elaborate?
    W: I feel with all that's going on in China today, that the tyrant, the current ruler (1989), will not survive his rulership. He has followed lines over the past which George Bush has taken note of, and is implementing to the extent that he can. Where this individual in China is nearly finished with his term in power, the President of the United States is beginning.
    D: How does the rest of the quatrain refer to China?
    W: This fox who turns into a tyrant was also elected without a word because it's in a Communist country. And he also has been living off the fat of the land. You must also realize that the President of the United States has had personal dealings with the leader of the Chinese government over a span of many years.
    D: Why is that important for us to know?
    W: He is a type of understudy. George Bush has been able to observe how this leader has controlled his people and led them around, and has manipulated them for his own gains.
    D: Of course, it's two different types of government.
    W: That's true. But when it comes to manipulating the masses, there is not a lot of difference whether it's Communist or a democracy.
