"Obama Confession" by Andrew Hodges

I just have to give an example of the strange places some Americans have gone fishing for the truth.  Psycho-history once had its day, but that day is long past, except in right wing daemonizations of Obama which are big sellers.

If you're tempted to buy this, let me suggest looking at this review of another book by the author called A Mother Gone Bad: The Hidden Confession of JonBenet's Killer

Here is one excerpt from the review "he concludes that the misspelled word "bussiness" all by itself indicates that a woman did it because of several random words that he himself, out of the blue, associates with that word. Yes, it really is that bad!"

 Much is said about the author's prowess as a criminal profiler but where are his solved cases?  We have only his claims about who the (unconvicted) perpetrators are in his two books on Jon Benet and one on the disappeared Natalee Holloway (whether she was murdered at all has not been determined, except by Dr. Hodges).

Using his "science of the super mind" has also enabled him to write an "interview" of Jesus Christ, the author picks quotes from various Obama speeches, and gives them outrageous "meanings".  These words from the 2008 inaugural address:
In the year of America’s birth, in the coldest of months, a small band of patriots huddled by dying campfires on the shores of an icy river. The capital was abandoned. The enemy was advancing. The snow was stained with blood. At the moment when the outcome of our revolution was most in doubt, the father of our nation ordered these words to be read to the people:
“Let it be told to the future world…that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive… that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet [it].”
 The book then asks
"Was the 'common...danger' Obama saw in America in reality himself?  That is, was his super-intel confessing specifically to his secret sabotage of the nation?  Did he tell us that story to bypass his denial and deliver to America a solemn warning of his ominous presidency, about to unfold?[p41]
 This book presently has an Amazon rating of 13,000 which is pretty damn good, though not "best-seller"

The Latest:  If you hear more than the usual number of "warnings" about Obama declaring martial law or wanting "total gun control", especially saying it came from Obama's mouth, it's likely to trace back to Hodges, and the article featuring him in WND.com (WorldNetDaily), where he pulls these phrases out of his magician's hat based on "analysis" of Obama's speeches.

Tip: If you wonder whether a periodical is counting on its audience being gullible, just look at the ads.  Here's the very first one I notice in that issue of WND:
