Palin one of many: what Bush Doctrine?

Turns out that in the TV interview with Charlie Gibson, Sarah Palin’s lack of recognition of the elusive ‘Bush Doctrine’ isn’t so unusual after all!


Biden idealizes Obama’s best traits 8.23.08

And Obama returns the favor!

As I’ve studied the planetary placements on this auspicious day for the Obama campaign with the events in Springfield, IL marking the kick-off of the Biden leg of the prez tour, I was struck by how complex the astrological picture is, from natal, progressed, and composite charts.

Interesting with my wizard’s hat in place, but difficult to write anything remotely resembling a unified and clear analysis without giving both my regular readers crossed eyes and headaches.

So I shall confine myself to a few observations, beginning with today’s Sabian Symbol for the Sun’s position, “1 Virgo”…”In a Portrait, a Man’s Best Features Are Idealized.”

Dane Rudhyar gives the Keynote of this degree as relating to the path of discipleship and the harvest season as the Sun leaves Leo and enters Virgo. Perhaps Obama may be said to have been Biden’s disciple? Biden has attempted to enter the White House and stay there before so it seems that Obama may be HIS ticket.

Now the Sun’s reaching the end of Leo/00Vir+ links to Egyptian star lore, the Sphinx, and to ancient mystery cults, plus, there are other indications between today’s chart, Obama’s and Biden’s natal and progressed charts, and their composite charts – indications of mystical influences and supernatural concerns.

Is Astrology Afoot Along with Biden’s “Firm Stand”? 

Timing today’s speech with the Moon’s position (29Tau+) because it’s opposite the Inaugural 2009’s Moon is a clue, as well as transit Sun today being conjunct Joe Biden’s natal NN…see above Sabian Symbol. Either there’s a campaign astrologer or two behind the woodpile in Lincoln’s land, or synchronicity times and wins the day along with some crumbling temple in Giza!

Now you may or may not think that this is (or will be) problematic for the Dem team, however, it is possible that if there are mystical associations, they may aid the Dems in their bid for the White House, or ‘White Lodge’ as I often think of it.

How benefit?

Besides support from abroad and from possible connections with secret organizations, these two grand egos, both of which are vying for the highest recognition and glory, must be able to consciously direct the sublimation of their personal egos on behalf of a higher cause and this will be the difference between success or failure.

What I can’t tell you astrologically – at least not yet – is whether their shared cause, mission, and goals are truly on behalf of the common good. A new direction for America away from the Bush policies? Yuh, sounds great! And sorely needed.

For we know that America always corrects course after too much of one Party’s ideology has run away with the day and overly fatigued us with its falsehoods and self-serving high-handedness.

Yes, the Obama-Biden team talks a good game of it, but we’ve been burned too many times by cynical politicians whose agendas are not remotely in tune with our own best interests. Yes, Barack and Joe sing a melodious tune, but who wrote the lyrics and for what ultimate political purpose?

But since the charts mentioned show a somewhat better story on the people’s behalf, I’ll try to muster a little faith in the Dem ticket’s duet because a vote for John McCain is like a vote for George Bush, and you know it.

And thennnn….?

Along the campaign trail will appear the anti-common-gooders who try to march off with the prize, and we’ll recognize them as neocon goose-steppers and enablers who hatchet the backs of the more popular contenders in order to continue the *Bush Doctrine and agenda and keep themselves top dogs.

But will the ‘old boss same as the new boss’ model take the cake?

What a Dem administration may do to scale back the constitutional weakening that Bush-Cheney have overseen will show how straightforwardly they intend to do the people’s business which has tragically been disregarded for too long – and to much ill effect for society’s sake, I may add.


*Link to chart image of Bush Doctrine but no grimey details added as of yet:


And here’s a Page I’ve added with a link to NPR’s audio player so you can listen to Joe Biden’s first speech as VP nom today in Springfield in which he idealizes Obama’s best traits…you’ll find a link to Obama’s speech today – in which he idealizes Biden’s best traits –  in the previous post:


Bush Doctrine natal chart 2002

If tech gremlins agree I’m about to publish the natal chart of the Bush Doctrine, Sept 17, 2002.

Publishing it as a Page in the sidebar will make it easier for me to return when I have time (because today I don’t) and update the chart with notes, details, whatever. But you will see that the chart is, as usual, marked with chicken scratch so there are some details for you if the image is enlarged for better viewing.

Presidents do tend to have their “Doctrines” but the Bush regime’s Doctrine is what we’re experiencing the results of now and you know how things are going in America…we’ll be fortunate if we make it in shreds and tatters by Inauguration Day 2009!

Remember after the terror twins, Bush-Cheney, muscled their way into the backdoor of the White House, many people (mostly bloggers–yayyy bloggers!) were saying that the emperor had no clothes?

He didn’t. Until the attacks of 9/11 changed the landscape of America–and the fortunes of the Bush administration.

UK-US: “plausible deniability” still a ploy that doesn’t work

Breaking News and Commentary from Citizens For Legitimate Government Feb 21, 2008

All items are here:

Britain regrets that U.S. “torture flights” landed on British territory 22 Feb 2008 British Foreign Secretary David Miliband admitted on Thursday that two U.S. “torture flights” did land on British territory in 2002, contrary to previous reports. Miliband told the House of Commons that he was “very sorry indeed” to have to say previous denials made in “good faith” were now having to be corrected. #

“Good faith”?? “Britain regrets” they were caught in another tissue of lies with Bush and Cheney at the spindle…and “plausible deniability” fails once again.

The US invented this political “doctrine” in the 1950s specifically for the newly minted CIA to use for veiling its mayhems. Now it’s 2008 and the dubious and dubiously effective tactic has infested governments the world over.

If you follow this WIKI link, you’ll find “Extraordinary rendition” listed under ‘See also’:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plausible_deniability  as well as info on Iran-Contra a la Reagan who knew nothing about nothing, and there’s mention of Richard “I am not a crook” Nixon’s attempts to hide his criminal actions.

Plausible deniability is seldom plausible so it’s easily seen through, and results in a government–in this case, Blair, Miliford, Brown, and their colleagues–looking like the liars they are as they try to prop up the Bush regime and their lucrative war-for-oil. (Plus, looting Baghdad’s antiquities was no small part of their aim, you know.)

Considered an open door to *abuse of authority, plausible deniability is a major part of the Bush Doctrine (passed down through US administrations) and is the Pentagon’s usual mode of business relished by Donald Rumsfeld and depended upon by Abrams, Cheney, and the rest of the anarchists in our midst.

In fact, I’d say that the Bush-Cheney monster has depended upon it overmuch due to the magnitude of its crimes and its overbearing, overreaching world domination agenda.

And yet: have I appreciated in the past the support the UK has given the US? Of course. Great Britain is the home of many of my ancestors and I love most things UK. But support us when we do the right things, not when we err, for now we both look like slouchy suspects who are no better than those we consider ourselves morally above, no thanks for that.

Guess that’s part of the problem with thinking yourself above another–the very act shows that you’re not.

Modern Times! Truth is passe according to some people, and Machiavelli would be proud of the UK-US alliance these days. Now That’s one good way for empires to collapse from the inside–by accepting the Trojan Horse of plausible deniability.


*’abuse of authority and power’ astrologically may be seen with asteroid archetypes such as: Juno, Atlantis, Toro, and Hidalgo, and you may know a few more as well. They’ve been very busy lately.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
