When the Blue Dog Howls: Jane Harman

From Capitol Hill that plaintive sound you hear today is Blue Dog Democrat Rep. Jane Harman baying loudly over an injustice that we-the-people have experienced for years.

Harman was – gasp! – spied upon! Tapped even! Not fun, is it? Even if you’re merely an innocent pup going about your daily rounds with nothing to hide, it’s prying where you don’t belong…in a word, theft, imo.

And about as unAmerican as you can get.

Does anyone see the Harman/AIPAC revelations as payback for the Obama administration’s recent release of Bush/CIA torture memos? If so, I’ll have to point to Cheney and Rove as the possible embarrassing-revelations culprits against Democrat Harman, how about you?

Of course, it could all relate to Obama administration changes in foreign policy in the endless Israeli-Arab conflict. I wouldn’t know about that.

But just prior to the November 2006 elections, I posted a few notes on Rep. Harman’s Sun-Moon personality blend if you’d care to snag a peek with now-President Obama and Rep. John Conyers stirred into the astrological mix as well.

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 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?

Cheney backs Palin – oh – and McCain

Endorsing from a safe location – Wyoming! – erstwhile VP Cheney has come out in full support of Sarah Palin and John McCain. You gotta love them: Palin and Cheney – two gun totin’ straight shooters around the campfire tearing raw meat with their canines, blood dribbling down their proud chins and devil take the hindmost. (Lucifer prefers dark meat of the drumstick, one assumes.)

Well, Dick’s endorsement seems kind of late but better than never, one supposes – especially for all those GOP-ers who adore the secretive dark-sider, Dick Cheney, and who plan to vote (or have early-voted) in support of Bush-Rove & friends in preparation for the US eeking through 4 more years of neocon madness:

http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/archives/individual/2008_11/015474.php

Of course, in light of where America stoops now after 8 years of Bush-Cheney, my question to them has to be: are you crazy?

Check the sidebar’s Feeds for the latest Stars Over Washington post where I make rather spiteful comments about Bush’s natal Mars in Virgo and America being Battered by Bush. Just remember: I’m holding myself back with ladylike restraint – even with Bush’s 81% DISapproval rating. And he’s still got several weeks in which to make mischief and perform mayhem.

Financial meltdown part of Cheney’s plans

Roll Call tells us that the Bush administration made plans months ago…’just in case’…

And you may wish to read a fresh post at Stars Over Washington (see sidebar – I placed its feed there) relating today’s economic ‘hearings’ on Capitol Hill with Paulson and Bernanke to the natal chart of the New World Order.

There are some striking connections and perhaps, as the performances continue, I shall additionally grouse on this when I have more time.

(feed should update any minute now with ‘Paulson and the Capitol Hill Theater 9.23.08’)

Bush-Cheney spoil for war with Russia: does Hitler smile?

Seventy-five years between them and the propaganda machine keeps spinning on…

“The National Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to
revive in the nation the spirit of unity and cooperation. It will preserve
and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It
regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the
family as the basis of national life.” 

-Adolph Hitler, My New World Order, Proclamation to the German Nation at Berlin  February 1, 1933

“I feel like God wants me to run for President. I can’t explain it, but I
sense my country is going to need me. Something is going to happen… I know
it won’t be easy on me or my family, but God wants me to do it.”

-George W. Bush commenting to Texas evangelist James Robinson in the run-up to his
presidential campaign

~:~~:~
“And I just — I cannot speak strongly enough about how we must collectively
get after those who kill in the name of — in the name of some kind of false
religion.”

George W. Bush during a press appearance with King Abdullah of Jordan, Aug 1, 2002

~:~~:~

Belated note to George: that was Falwell whispering in your hairy ear, not God. And in the other ear? Whichever rabbi you were favoring at the time…even so I like Bush’s advice from Aug 1, 2002, for if the collective would ‘get after’ the brigands behind the curtain, he’d be one of the ones put away where he couldn’t harm more innocents.

Swords and torches!

The GOP is making as much hay as possible saying that Barack Obama has a messiah complex, and it’s true that a very large ego is required to run for president. Yet in the Battle of Messiah Complexes, I think Bush and his quixotic, oddly directed ‘God-inspired’ compulsion to bomb the Holy Land to smithereens, would win hooves down.

That Bush-Cheney and friends have made billions from their oily adventures is a clue to the coup by the military industrial complex’s…er…messiah complex.

You know, a good bit has been made of what’s called ‘Hitler’s trigger degree’ and rightly so for his natal *Sun in the ’30Aries’ – ‘1Tau’ degree area often seems to turn up in violent horoscopes especially at times when seizing power is on someone’s agenda.

And ‘1 Tau’ is the Illumination Point (opposite/unconscious/shadow degree) of the natal Sun in the Oct 24, 1993 New World Order horoscope.

And I know you noticed from whence Hitler’s above quote spewed…in the works for decades!

Now here’s the symbol for ’30Ari’ from Adriano Carelli’s interesting book ‘The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac’ published in 1982 (third printing, AFA):

“A virago leading by the bridle a horse entirely covered with iron plate.”

Iron Cross? Iron Curtain? Trojan Horse? 9/11? Hello?

More of same with John McCain. Trying to save yo mama with Barack Obama.

The world domination path is set and no detours will be allowed – not in the 60s and not at this late date for they’ve worked so hard and pilfered so much to give up their iron fist now.

* Adolph Hitler Apr 20, 1889 (NS) 6:30 pm Braunau am Inn, Austria; Moon ‘7Cap’, also from Carelli:

‘The Sphinx’: (a degree) “-worthy of Daedalus, and drives to their utmost defects of puzzling and selfish secretiveness.

{Charubel gives ‘the labyrinth’ as a symbol for this degree…the whole of the sign Capricorn is in fact a labyrinth; will the native be its maker or its victim? Or, like Daedalus, both at the same time? A Sphinx: is the riddle in the native’s self, or waylaying him at a bend in the road he is to travel? And will the riddle be of a material, intellectual, or spiritual nature?

Will there be political or feminine intrigue?

The Sphinx would rather not be asked questions. She is to ask them herself.

(Should the native be a man) and he is involved in political intrigue, there is sure to be a woman somewhere. The native may fly high or land in jail, may be exiled or die a tragic death. It is the end that counts.

But the man is not by all means to be an Oedipus, nor is the woman, whether a winner or loser, to be a sphinx. The riddle may belong to the world of science, and the sphinx watch the secrets of the physical world or the threshold of the world beyond.”

(Carelli adds his usual that the whole of the horoscope gives background and meaning.)

Now you may know that i related this, in part, to the attacks of 9/11/01, for after a mrning of studying charts I took a break at 1:00 pm edt and asked a Tarot question: who is responsible?

A: Ask the Sphinx.

But the Sphinx doesn’t like to be asked questions! The ‘sphinx’ is often used to describe someone who is mum.

Science?

Mmm-hmm…bombs planted within towers? How high the degree to melt steel? NORAD put on pretend stand-by games by Dick Cheney? 

Many such questions have resulted from that sad day in 2001 and the riddle, like Capricorn’s labyrinth, rankles still from actions taken and not taken under the Geminian duplicities of a void-of-course Moon.

Obama introduces VP Biden in Springfield

Talking Points Memo comes through!

In case you’ve not had a chance to read it, here’s a link to Barack Obama’s speech in Springfield, IL today where he touts Joe Biden’s ‘many triumphs after great trial’ and links Biden’s character to his years of foreign policy experience:

http://tpmelectioncentral.talkingpointsmemo.com/2008/08/obama_hails_bidens_character_f.php

My own thoughts are along with lines of ‘be careful what you tout’ since the embroilments the US is now in have occurred under Biden’s watch on Foreign Relations Committee as much as under the residency of George W. Bush and the mentorship and hubris of Dick Cheney.

A weak Bush sowing dragon’s teeth in the Caucasus

Eric Margolis has published an article that elucidates the “he said, she said” confrontation going on in the Caucasus since August 7 between Georgia, South Ossetia, and Russia, and it’s interestingly titled:

‘Crisis in the Caucasus. What Were They Smoking in the White House?’

I don’t know what stash they have tucked away in the cellar, but they oughta be passing it around: their inept maneuverings seem meant to provoke war with what Margolis says is no longer a banana republic: The Great Bear, Russia, now fat and sassy with oil and gas wealth.

As I’ve stated in a prior post, at least Russia is acting – and reacting – within its own neighborhood which is more than we can say for our pretendedly-mandated neocon radicals who’ve taken over Washington with much jingoistic fervor and seem to think the whole world is their oyster. Must be some darn good consciousness expanding weed.

So I hope that you check out Margolis’ clear-eyed views on the whole confusing situation if you haven’t yet for it’s being so poorly mishandled by the Bush administration as to be buffoonish. 

Plus, it’s been made to seem more guffaw-esque by McCain’s ineffectual, neoconnish posturing – at least Obama’s mild comments have had a small the benefit of making barely a ripple on Putin’s sea.

Margolis states that “US missiles in Poland and radars in the Czech Republic are a dangerous, unnecessary provocation that is sowing dragon’s teeth for future confrontation.”

Now I’m still on a major learning curve here with the current Caucasus stand-off, but his words strike me as unfortunately on the mark. And for me it conjures a nastier image still of the *Big Dragon – China – which could stomp in at any time – a possibility that Bush, Cheney, Rice, and the Pentagon should have thought about before they risked so much for so little gain on behalf of the ship they are supposedly helming into port, not crashing on the stones of confusion bwo the bags of Columbian Gold they nabbed from your neighbor’s house last month.

Then there’s the oft-repeated myth, “we owe China too much money,” a rationale the US cannot depend on forever for her misadventured, misdirected belligerence. 

Perhaps in the Caucasus, it may fly a little longer…as long as The Dragon doesn’t spread its fiery wings and give the weakened-by-neocon-war America more than she ever bargained for thanks to the pie-in-the-sky pipe dreams issuing from the dark recesses of a smoke-filled White House basement lounge.

In summation? Bush can’t leave too soon. And take Cheney, McCain, and the rest of the neocons with him. Please.

* my hopeful prayer is that Pluto, the Dragon, in stern Capricorn, will not mean the waking up of the dragon which will roar, as the Bible says. The upcoming Cardinal T-square between Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto may turn out to be an unfortunate timing device for our suffering planet (see post on the Bilderberg Club for midpoint picture details. They’re not at all pretty, but you may as well be aware.)

So put down that d_____!  (Unless you brought enough to share.)  ;lp
