Best photo from Bush’s last presser

You may not have seen this photo from George Bush’s last press conference of Monday, Jan 12, 2009 and I didn’t want you to miss it:

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.

George the Magic White Boy

Having an irrepressible kitty cat like Lim who does like his rhymery and his Politics, it makes smart  kitty sense that Lim would eventually respond to the Magic Negro parody of Barack Obama with his own ditty – also sung to the tune of ‘Puff the Magic Dragon.’

This may be Lim’s way of bidding adieu to our 43th resident, George Bush:

http://limslimericks.blogspot.com/2009/01/george-magic-white-boy-sing-along.html

(‘resident’ is no typo, fyi.)

And don’t fret – Republicans, including radio’s Rush Limbaugh, have played the Obama parody ad nauseum using the ‘he’s black, too’ justification because it was created by a black man, David Ehrenstein.

So? Well, Lim is a Leo the Lion kitty…Bush has Leo rising and Mercury, Venus, and Pluto in Leo in his 1st house of Self. He even has Leo the Lion’s slightly crossed eyes and a heart full of pride.

So by GOP logic,  it’s okay for Lim to parody another Leo, right?

Dueling Parodies! Makes me wonder if ‘Rush the Magic Gasbag’ can be far behind! Lim may be scratching it into his litterbox as I type…better go check…’scuse me…

Bush Bushisms the Great Depression

Bushisms! Everyone loves or is horrified by them. Does he mangle the English language on purpose? Who knows?

There have been times during the last eight years that I thought it was a useful diversionary tactic for a free-press-hatin’ propaganda-catapulter.

Be that as it may, you might wish to read this Bushism about the US economy and Great Depression, then follow a link to a video of the mangler spouting off in his own words:

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:

http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/news/2008/12/ex-aides_say_bush_never_recove.php

~:~

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.

Bush says Bible ‘probably not literally true’

Here, George Bush, the Christian, demonstrates his lackadaisical beliefs about God and his spotty understanding of Scripture:

http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Bush_Bible_probably_not_literally_true_1208.html

Could his words be interpretated as a last shot across the evangelical bow? 

Besides, it’s difficult to imagine Bush accepting anyone or anything as an authority over him. Plus, Christians are as Christians do…and bombing the Cradle of Civilization is completely out-of-bounds on that score. You know it.

Well, I’m calling his Scriptural revelations and pontifications ‘the lukewarm equivocations of George W. Bush.’

For it’s much better to be completely cold or very hot than to be wishy washily lukewarm on these matters.

Frost/Nixon review the cat’s meow

Just found a well written review of the new movie, Frost/Nixon, a film about the David Frost vs Richard Nixon interviews that ground on for 28 hours as taped.

I remember watching the melee between the preening presser from the UK and the disgraced US president who had festooned my favorite city (DC, as we called her then) with the gloom, disappointment, and anguish of Watergate. 

And that doesn’t count the humiliation we-the-people suffered with the scorn from the rest of the world due to  our usual national hubris and puppy-dog-tail-wagging Be My Friend demeanor. Aw shucks.

Nixon’s psychotic “if the president does it, it’s not illegal” argument is the sort of thing we’ve been encumbered with once again within the last few years, as urged on and coordinated by Cheney, and cheer-led (is that a word?) by ex-cheerleader, George W. Bush, the mouthpiece.

Frost/Nixon recalls the brilliance of David Frost who came to life toward the end of those hours with laser focus aimed directly at a practiced sidestepper pickled in snake oil who drenched himself with the V for Victory sign…or, wait a minute…maybe he was shovin’ the Flower Power peace sign at us – from the escape helicopter’s shadowy steps.

Presidential irony seldom pans out for the people…it’s usually at our expense. But most Americans, and perhaps others as well, recognized that a couple of traditional things were glaringly missing as Milhouse left town – the tar and the feathers.

Anyway, it was with agonizing relief that we watched the helicopter that carried him as it churned away into the sky – and we couldn’t help but notice an immediate lightening of atmosphere and mood about the place. If you’d ever wanted to say ‘Good Bye and Good Riddance’  to or about anyone, Nixon’s departure in shame was definitely the time to speak up. His drunken bwa-ha-has had permeated and soured our neighborhoods while making mockery of any trust anyone ever had in him as president.

If you think I over express on the Nixon matter, it may be because you weren’t there at the time. But the Saturnian old is the Uranian new, so Presidential trespasses are of the moment, aren’t they?

So now it’s December 2008, and a movie is released…

That this film on the subject of presidential over-reach is airing itself in public now when Bush is about to slink away from the scene of his Oval Office crimes seems fitting for the collective’s benefit to have a thespianesque demonstration of how to be indignant when your country has been decimated by rotten, fraudulent leadership of the megalomaniac kind.

Closer to the truth? If the American people do it, it’s not illegal.

And all side-windin’ politicians? They need to pay their own legal bills.

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?
