Turns out if you want a country bombed to Kingdom Come, call the Pentagon. If you wish to extend your power base into the world, call the Pentagon. If you have your eye on some resources that don’t belong to you, call you-know-who.
And if you want death-dealing drones that can be hacked, call our Death Star, the Pentagon.
But if you want to know where outrageous amounts of our money went, Do Not Call the Pentagon.
Considering the human toll from recent austerity measures, government take-overs by the world banking syndicate, dire weather events, radiating nuclear plant abominations, and other difficult circumstances going on across the globe in 2011, I think of the presidential days of George H. W. Bush, who had his power elite finger on the pulse of that long-planned totalitarianism vision now being forced austerely into place:
“If we do not follow the dictates of our inner moral compass and stand up for human life, then (t)his lawlessness will threaten the peace and democracy of the emerging new world order we now see, this long dreamed-of vision we’ve all worked toward for so long.”
President George Bush (January 1991)
The satanically minded like to ‘flip’ concepts (black is white, up is down, etc) so you notice that he framed acceptance of his NWO “vision” (Bacon’s Great Plan for America, or a cynical perversion of it) as following the “dictates of our moral compass” as if no one has noticed that these global take-over artists have no moral compasses to follow!
His “stand (ing) up for human life” would be hilarious if it weren’t so tragic. Bombing women and children to ‘bring peace and democracy’ to other nations could not possibly be considered an ‘exalted’ motivation at this late date.
Perhaps Bush and his cronies have more US soldiers to evict from their homes upon their return from this unholy ‘NWO war’ along with the many other challenges that soldiers returning from war must face.
Believe me, Mr. Parry knows what’s what!
The looming U.S. defeats in Iraq and Afghanistan represent a threat to the political fortunes of America’s neocons — if they get blamed for the disasters. However, if they can hang the failures around President Obama’s neck, the two lost wars might help bring the neocons back to power as early as 2013, writes Robert Parry.
For the full story, go to:
You know in early August 2011, the transiting South Node (separation; neurotic behavior; talent; the past) will conjoin US natal Mars in Gemini which underscores the themes of war and violence and may point to our troops coming back from the Middle East…a few of them anyway.
And of course, August 2, 2011 is said to be the ‘deadline’ for raising the US debt (credit) ceiling so we can fight more wars. Because we know from recent ‘austerity measures’ that the increase in frothy funds couldn’t possibly be to answer our many dire needs, now could it?
(I’m turning really grumpy from all this, can you tell?)
Anyway, in a couple of hours I’ll be updating Stars Over Washington with a look-see at the horoscope of August 2, 2011, Washington DC, so do drop by when you may!
And wouldn’t you just know that bubbly, inflationary Jupiter-Neptune is involved?
Well, the month of May has begun surprisingly with the alleged raid and kill of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan by US Special Forces undercover of the dark of the Moon phase. It’s all over the news since late last evening – you can’t miss it and aren’t meant to. (If this is a political scam, wonder who came up with the ‘buried at sea’ excuse which should be good for many scoffings d’amusement from late-night comedians!)
Meanwhile, there’s a New Moon 12Tau30 on May 3rd and a Full Moon on May 17th @ 26Sco13. Let’s consider the Earth-Earth Sun Tau-Moon Tau of the New Moon and the Full Moon’s Earth-Water Sun Tau-Moon Sco blends for May 2011.
Sun Tau-Moon Tau tends toward sensuality v self-control issues yet is practical and unflappable with a miscievous sense of humor and an explosive temper. It seeks certainties (which reminds me of bin Laden’s DNA evidence which was suppsedly ‘taken’ yet could have been taken years ago when he was being trained by our CIA); security is also a deep concern for this pragmatic combo of energies.
Passionate hatreds, stubborn rigidity, and possessiveness are the negative traits. Sun Tau-Moon Tau is shared natally by Karl Marx who is well-known for saying, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” (This conveniently leaves out who’s at the top and decides these things for everyone else.)
The Sun Tau-Moon Sco blend of the May 17th Full Moon adds Scorpio intensity to the mix. It retains the famous Taurean stubbornness, passion, and posessiveness while adding intense creativity, independence, and egotism. This blend does not have an inferiority complex! Instincts for self-preservation are high, and a powerful fighting spirit lies within.
The combo describes something of a bon viveur with big appetites and people intuit that it’s best to have those with this energy as an ally rather than an enemy. Scorpio brings in the primeval life force and this combo can be generous one minute, very demanding the next.
Sun Tau-Moon Sco is the natal blend of President Harry Truman who instructively remarked, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”
Whether you choose to remain in the kitchen or not, you’ll find more info concerning the May 3 New Moon and May 17 Full Moon of 2011 by accepting my cordial invitation to view both Horoscopes set for Washington DC along with details such as Sabian Symbols, aspects, and more at Stars Over Washington where I regularly peek at squirmy Politics through the useful lens of Astrology.
ps: BBC News is now reporting that the US does have photos of bin Laden. How releasing them will play across the globe is anyone’s guess.
Most info above from ‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Charles and Suzi Harvey.
Not WikiLeaks this time but a lawsuit over US drone strikes in Pakistan killing innocent people has revealed the name of an American spy.
He has fled for safety after receiving death threats.
Well, this may be the largest Article-Round-Up I’ve ever posted for your consideration for there’s so much going on and situations are fluxxing fast:

Congressman Ron Paul speaks on the house floor. December 9, 2010.
Well, as a long-time fan of Mark Twain, I do suspect that it’s his restless squirming in his grave that we’ve been hearing for decades now given the sorry state of journalism which worsens by the minute.
And now it seems journalist Twain knocks upon his coffin lid, begging to jump out and give our current batch of Orwellian propagandists and media monopolists and moguls some sharp punches in their lousy, warmongering, anti-societal, ‘one world government’ snoots!
But mostly by way of his mightier-than-the-sword pen, of course.
Update Nov 16, 2010: now here’s something economic which concerns President Obama’s upcoming sell-out to the super-rich which, in my opinion, is a deal made years ago. One way to know? He’s been allowed to play President.
Original post begins here:
Oh great. In their bid to out-Bush Bush, the Obama administration is now covering up the cover-up of the CIA’s torture tape destruction a la the
Bush-Cheney administration which spotlights the way each US administration ‘has the back’ of the previous adm, and recent ones besides.
Makes sense really. For how would things turn out if one lonely little White House administration turned tattletale against another administration thus asking for a similar fate? Why, then someone might soon expect that peace, honesty, integrity, justice, and equality would then be uplifted by the ‘White’ House rather than being continually cast down into Washington’s mud while being used in the media as mere political talking points.
And worst of all for political thespians everywhere, Change We Can Believe In might turn out to mean something significant after all!
Seems that the US government’s spying on your Aunt Granny Fanny’s last tweet to her bookie isn’t enough for Washington and the Pentagon.
Now the US is demanding massive amounts of communications data from European citizens, too.
This is the sort of thing that causes me to wonder: if the attacks of 9/11/01 had not happened, what justification would the all-seeing- eye types now hide behind while disregarding ordinary people’s right to what should be the rather simple concept of privacy?
Is the US another casualty on the long list of Afghanistan’s successful resistance against all comers, looters, bullies, and occupiers?
Is there someone reading this who didn’t see the inevitability of America’s withdrawal from the Afghani menu? Is ‘protecting America’ necessarily equivalent to warmongering against sovereign nations and bombing their people into kingdom come?
Can a massive, costly, years-long war ever lead to anything good? Will I stop typing out loud now?
Suggested Answers: yes; yes; no; no (not until long after it ends so let’s take our boots off their sand Now); yes.
Tax Day, April 15, is upon us with a vengeance and it’s not comforting to know that most of our funds go to fighting perpetual war bwo the Pentagon.
Especially with US schools, post offices, and court rooms closing for lack of funds! Either we-the-people are mad as hatters or the US government is trying to drive us in that direction while totally clearing out the US Treasury in the process.
As I groused repeatedly about the Bush-Cheney regime’s invasion of Iraq in 2003: with Jupiter the General retrograde at the time, the war would be a bottomless pit in the money department…was I wrong?
Well, this is a definite case of ‘sometimes you just don’t want to be right’.
And I stand by my opinion: Bush-Cheney didn’t go to war in Iraq or in Afghanistan in order to end terrorism – they invaded the Middle East on a misguided mission to promote it. And we see years later how the entire world is paying the price.
