Yes, it’s Legal to tape police in the US

It is still legal for people to record or tape the police in America yet a man is facing a life sentence for doing just that.

Deciding that we must fight for our rights while we still have them, a court case tried before a jury of his peers is expected. This is an important case for all Americans!

If you’re interested, you may wish to check out today’s post at Stars Over Washington with a few of the highlights concerning the Astrology of 9/11 and Dick Cheney, plus, the post contains a two-part video presentation of the August 30th Alex Jones Show with callers expressing themselves on the latest corruption coming out of Washington DC.

No, the show isn’t endless, silly! Just their crimes–since few if any recent culprits are being held responsible and accountable as the fraudsters they really are.

Gulf Oil Spill: I knew it was You, Halliburton!

Turns out a peepeye! of sorts may be in order when it comes to culpability and negligence concerning the Gulf Oil spill fiasco. Apparently Dick Cheney’s old company Halliburton didn’t do a proper job on their end.

Why am I not surprised?

Update May 5, 2010: read Robert Kennedy Jr’s HuffPo article which mentions that Halliburton may emerge yet as the oil spill culprit.

Original post continues here:

The following news nugget is from an email a friend sent along on May 1 and I would add an attribution if I knew whom to credit:

‘Cheney spokesman Reinhard Heydrich Jr. announced the the former Vice President would be spending next week on a fishing and hunting vacation in Grand Isle Louisiana. Planned activities included Alligator hunting, and most notably deep sea Tuna fishing.

This comes from one charter operator’s description of their tuna fishing trips:

Fishcommander.com

“These fish put up quite a fight, sometimes lasting over an hour. We are running between 70 and 100 miles offshore to fish giant floating oil platforms with no pressure from other boats.”

Joining Cheney for the fishing trip are daughter Liz, close friends Harry Whittington, Don Rumsfeld, and a former Bush White House photographer. Also rumor has it that Rush Limbaugh may join Cheney on the fishing trip. While in Grand Isle Cheney’s party will take over a luxury Gulf Coast resort.

This announcement by Cheney who kept a very low profile on his last vacation to New Jersey, shows how determined Dick is to do damage control for the Oil Industry.’ #

And Harry Whittington is a brave fellow to take a chance, I’d have to say.

9-11 oddities resurface

Raw Story informs us that traces of a high-tech explosive superthermite have been identified in WTC debris.

Meanwhile The Daily Ed reports new information that foul play may have been to blame for the August 2008 death of key 9/11 eyewitness, Barry Jennings, who was emergency coordinator for the NY Housing Authority on 9.11.01.

Mr. Jennings, as I remember, gave an on-the-spot, real-time interview with the press that morning – he heard explosions which would indicate that the official story of the 9/11 attacks is off by several miles at least or is criminally misleading at best.

Then there’s this particular astrologer, who previously posted on a synchronistic astrological oddity concerning Dick Cheney’s natal chart progressed to the morning of 9/11/01 with results which must be seen to be believed – and perhaps not even then.

Juan Cole on Cheney’s Mission – Accomplished

Cheney’s Mission Accomplished

By Juan Cole

Cheney avoids mentioning all the human suffering he has caused, on a cosmic scale, and focuses on procedural matters like elections (which he confuses with democracy– given 2000 in this country, you can understand why).

Or he lies, as when he says that Iran’s influence in Iraq has been blocked.

Cheney lays it all at Bush’s doorstep

Wonder if Bush will lay it all on Cheney’s doorstep if the Hague ever calls the war-lovin’ twins to heel…this “George did it” sounds kind of like a mutual agitation society because this is riling, folks:

http://rawstory.com/news/afp/Cheney_expects_total_retirement_fro_01072009.html

Besides, if you think 9/11 was a false flag op  (their “new Pearl Harbor” that they imagined gave their shaky electoral gift from the Supreme Court some legitimacy), then this is just another example of their shell game antics. Now you blame him, now you don’t!

To me, Cheney interviews have always had a strange ‘pull my finger’ quality to them, imo. Forty years he’s been at work in Washington, he says, and now he’s got many rivers to fish back in beautiful Wyoming.

But my hope for America’s future is that he’s got charges to face as he retires from all that bombing, propagandizing, fabricating,  resource cornering and war profiteering.  And giving interviews.

So, as we used to say in these parts: don’t let the screen door hit you on your way out.

Bush’s response to Katrina his legacy

Former aides to George Bush are telling a few tales and explaining his sorry presidential performances.

The re-writing of Bush-Cheney-maul-the-White-House has begun, but this article loosens the lid on the ususal spin thanks to former aides sharing their perspectives on the Bush presidency.

Tidbits include: Bush’s lack of handling of Hurricane Katrina was the ‘nail in the coffin’ and Cheney was VP before Bush ‘picked’ him…read more at:

Well, astrologically, Hurricane Katrina at the end of August, 2005, was Bush’s Saturn-to-natal-Ascendant transit, one of the more important transits which comes around approximately every 30 years – for everyone.

Now 30 years of life is time enough for most people to ‘get it’ in the Saturn department – responsibility, accountability, authority issues, that sort of thing. He was 59 years old then – did George Bush get it by August 2005 ?

Saturn to Ascendant  is a period of time when we are forced to face ourselves honestly, the more honestly the better. And being the Ascendant, self-image and how others view us are in for change – plus, something karmic may come along to up the stakes as past actions are revealed for what they really are.

Kind of a second chance for Bush to ‘be’ Saturn – the authority with clout, the one who accepts the buck when it stops at his desk – in his case, a presidential desk. This is a ‘moment of truth’ transit and the entire nation – indeed, the whole world – saw in stark relief how little Bush valued fellow citizens’ lives and property. They also saw how governmental offices that had worked admirably before were diverted by the Bush administration into keystone-cop-chaos.

To my eyes in 2005, it seemed that if class warfare were ever going to be noticed by the previously unaware, this would be the time, and in that department Bush did not disappoint – his racism was obvious, imo.  The haves vs the have-nots in need, and George bailed and failed.

Bush’s complicity in undermining the social fabric of America by letting down the people of the Gulf Coast unto death, and his dismantling  of our government was on-view during Katrina – we remember that Bush-Cheney insisted that FEMA be absorbed by Homeland Security Dept…absorbed and ruined in time for Katrina.

Perhaps Ronald Reagan, their touchstone, would have been proud. Newt Gingrich may have been impressed as the ‘Contract Against America’ played out. But few others were proud or impressed with Mr. Bush’s performance.

Saturn to Ascendant brings more responsibilities along and a chance to step up as events require that personal attention be paid.

Meanwhile, Bush was celebrating John McCain’s birthday by cutting the cake as the people of New Orleans drowned and the nation and world looked on in horror.

Saturn brings high rewards for correct actions and this transit is no exception – it embodies the higher lessons that Saturn insists we face in our lives – even George Bush with his natal 12th house Saturn in self-protective Cancer.

So he’d had a Saturn Return in summer 2005 indicating similar Saturnian themes. Saturn in 12th house is led to believe no responsibility is required, and being a Water house, the 12th house of the Unconscious and Karma tells the tale here of a weakened Saturn in need of many lessons. But it is the nation paying for them.

And while Saturn to Ascendant can result in an impressive display of maturity and finesse, it’s safe to say that George Bush at Katrina time was AWOL  just as he’s been before…and Saturn doesn’t like to be disappointed and let down like an old man (Saturn) left to drown in an attic or miserably stranded on a rooftop with no help in sight – while the fatcats play and wink.

Yes, Katrina highlighted Bush’s lack of compassion and showed where his heart would be if he had one for anyone but himself. Makes me want to throw an umbrella at his head if I’m ever unfortunate enough to see him pontificating from a podium about tacos or freedom.

Obama points financial finger in wrong direction

Obama Will Not Prosecute Bush And Cheney

~
By Joseph A. Lopisi

~
Along the same lines as his predecessors, President Obama will deal with the current financial crisis by pointing his finger at everyone except the real culprits, the Federal Reserve Bank, the U. S. executive and legislative branches and their partners in crime, the Wall Street financial institutions.
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article21438.htm

~:~

As I said before: a deal only presidents can understand and appreciate.

What mental and emotional contortions Washington politicians must overcome in order to spout untruths while facts – and the American people who know them – stare them in their mask-covered faces!

Lopisi’s article tells of the Executive Order that JFK signed 6 months before his death that would have allowed the federal government to print money based on a silver standard.

This is the tidbit of info I’ve been hoping to find again because years ago, from a forgotten source, I read that presidents who threatened major changes to the world banking system – namely JFK and Lincoln – were assassinated to protect the world’s financial empire.

(Barack Obama won’t be making that  ‘mistake’  if history is his lesson – hence his finger pointed away from the real culprits.)

Well, we know John and Abe were assassinated, but why (and by whom) are the real questions. Lopisi’s article reveals this and more – such as Gerald’s Ford’s deathbed confession concerning the Warren Commission’s ‘magic bullet’ theory and WHO was in Dealey Plaza the day John Kennedy was shot.

Lopisi also mentions the payback between Bill Clinton and Bush Sr and how they’ve always been buddies. I noticed at the time that their ‘tour’ to raise money for Katrina victims was a charade which caused many people to say, ‘isn’t that nice – opponents joining forces to help the victims.’ Puh! These two belong to the same secret organizations!

9/11 is also mentioned – Joseph Lopisi is webmaster of:

http://www.911insidejob.net

So, as Lopisi says, the mainstream media won’t pick up on any of this newly revealed information on American ‘mysteries’ and political criminals in high places (media moguls and some reporters are  in the same organizations, too) so my hope is that you’ll read his brief article and pass it on.

Can Bush pardon himself?

Will the Obama administration pardon George W. Bush and his partners in crime with a ‘blanket pardon’?

My lands!! It will have to be a gi-huge blanket.

Since Ford pardoned Nixon it’s seemed to me that the new prez pardons the old so when the new is the old, he may expect the same treatment.

Things are not so simple, however, and the article linked below details the arguments that are on the rise as to whether Obama will pardon the outlaw with a blanket (which won’t fool anyone), or whether Bush can pardon himself and what sort of precedence this would set.

As usual with Bush, it would be a negative one, with no incentive for abiding by the law (although he apparently had no incentive in the first place…remember how Dubya promised to bring “integrity” back to the White House? How he and his minions must chuckle over that one now. Integrity!)

Yes, when you inhabit the White Lodge…er, House, there’s a serious need for whole lot of pardoning so it will surprise me if the Obama administration holds Bush accountable for his many crimes against humanity, the US Constitution, our used-to-be Bill of Rights, or for his emptying of the US Treasury. And that’s not mentioning torture and pre-emptive war.

It’s not a question of ‘vengenace’ as Obama has intimated, it’s a question of law. By refusing to hold Bush accountable, is Obama lowering our expectations as he prepares to do similar things that Bush did against us?

It seems the Nixon model, “it isn’t illegal if the president does it” is alive and flourishing in Washington, but you’d think the new film ‘Frost-Nixon’  would point out the hubris of the kingly attitude well enough for anyone to marvel if Bush-Cheney receive a Get Out Of Jail Free card from the Obama administration.

For eight years Bush, Cheney, and their attorneys ran riot over US laws and freedoms…can Barack Obama believe it’s in the American people’s best interest to let the bandits go scott-free?

Or has a deal been made which only presidents can understand and appreciate?

Bush was ‘unprepared for war’!

George Bush’s interview with Charles Gibson will soon air in a wimpy attempt to salvage Bush’s skeletal  ‘legacy.’

But you, lone reader, always recognize bull poo when you smell it – do you recognize it when you hear or read it?

http://www.truthdig.com/eartotheground/item/20081201_bush_admits_he_was_unprepared_for_war/

Now I seem to remember Bush crowing about being a ‘war president’ so you’d think he wouldn’t catapult such propaganda about himself and his warring ways. And remember his early days in Washington when he talked about going to Mars?

Mars, the planet named after the god of war, that is. Somehow it seemed so….perfect a place for him, and I generously offered to give him a ride to Cape Canaveral if he’d get onboard for a blast-off (my offer did not include a return trip  – I’m on a budget here.)

Then there’s the astrological fact that Bush invaded Iraq during a Jupiter Retrograde period…a ‘bottomless pit in the money department’ was how I phrased it at Stars Over Washington. Please don’t do it, George, most of the world pleaded, this reluctant astrologer included.  Jupiter the General is Rx, for cryin’ out loud, I wrote, somebody stop him and the neocon jingoists from this tragic folly.

And Rx Jupiter has resulted in interrupted service as generals fell politically by the wayside. We’ve also seen Jupiter’s Rx effects with retired generals speaking out against the Iraq Occupation and the Bush administration’s politically driven decisions and maneuvers.

But Dubya was gung-ho to go.

Bush and Cheney’s ‘mandate’ for office was very shaky then because of the SCOTUS bump into the White House they received by hook and crook. The US economy was unstable from the dot com bubble burst, too. But a ‘new Pearl Harbor’ arrived on 9/11/01, and the neocons were off to the races, with war drums loud and proud, and obscene profits to be made. ‘Twas the start of something big – the Iraq War.

So as we watch or read Bush’s interview which attempts a rewrite of history on this score, remember how Mr. Gung-Ho wouldn’t listen to anyone but the voices in his head, one of which was Dick Dark Side Cheney. And remember the millions of anti-war protesters in streets across the globe during the lead up to war and beyond.

They were correct.

Bush was wrong.

And no amount of belated, thespianistic hand-wringing or network propaganda can ever change that fact.

Bush to leave White House – secrets to go with him

Guess this White House’s so-obvious demonstration in its waning months that there are many secrets to squash and piled-up bodies to hide escapes our Mr. Skull & Bonesman Bush:

http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/20081129_bushs_11th_hour_bid_for_secrecy/

January 20, 2009: I can see Bush and Cheney now in my mind’s eye…high-tailin’ it from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and down the street…a long, long, long line of skeletons in tow like a shadowy conga line…

Did I mention the conga line is long?
