Sibel Edmonds on Washington’s bribes and blackmails

Huffington Post has a handy breakdown of Edmond’s recent testimony and assertions as explained by Brad Friedman concerning the bribes and blackmailings perpetrated by the Capitol Hill crowd we not-so-fondly call our “representatives” in Congress.

Now don’t bother looking for analyses of her testimony in the mainstream media – they’re ignoring it. Check with Brad.

And you know, this kind of activity by government officials once had certain descriptive names that meant something: high crimes and misdemeanors; or, for some of them, if you prefer: treason.

Alec Baldwin April 3, 1958

An actor on one of my favorite comedy shows ’30 Rock’, Alec Baldwin, has been expressing his views for some time over at Huffington Post.

Below is a link to one from Friday Feb 6 in which Mr. Baldwin calls for Tim Geithner’s resignation from the Treasurey Dept, demands that Hank Paulson’s use of TARP money be investigated and that he be prosecuted for fraud, and sends a message to John McCain to ‘shut up’ – his political career is over.

Whew! that’s a lot of direction from an actor, isn’t it?

Born in Massapequa, New York on April 3, 1958, Alec Baldwin would have had to be born between midnight and 12:54 am est on that date to have natal Moon in Earthy, modest Virgo. So I suspect his natal Moon sign is Airy Libra, don’t you?

Now I half expected to see a planet or two out-of-bounds in his natal chart given the actor’s extreme professional success and his rather brazenly expressed views, but not so.

There is an interesting midpoint picture (not dependent on an exact birth time) relating to society (Jupiter and Saturn) and power (Pluto)

Saturn-Pluto = Jupiter (28Lib26 Rx): religious or social fanaticism; plainness and simplicity.

Plus, natal retrograde Jupiter is a ‘maverick’ signature – and he does express himself in gung-ho fashion.

Mr. Baldwin’s planetary combo of Jupiter and Neptune, who together make up the ‘speculator duo’ is on his Nodal axis…

Jupiter-Neptune = NN: associations with swindlers and speculators; placing false hopes on ones associations.

And perhaps his Sun-Moon blend is of interest…

Sun Ari-Moon Lib: independence vs dependence; head vs heart; ebullient sociability and charming hospitality; idealism and hopefulness; capacity to inspire optimism; artistic imagination and talents; naturally romantic and devoted in  heroic proportions; chivalrous; an almost childlike desire for social involvement; eager for life.

Negatives may include: tendency to think great guns then peter out; letting frustration eat up confidence; need for appreciation can fuel vanity rather than creativity; vacillation; resting on laurels when new strides should be made.

‘Image for Integration:  A conductor leads an orchestra with passionate conviction and a vibrant, pulsating organism of musical perfection is created to the ecstatic uplifting of the audience.’ (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

This Sun-Moon blend is shared by several other entertainers:

Pearl Bailey, Jean Paul Belmondo, Richard Chamberlain, Shirley Jones, Julian Lennon, Simone Signoret, Gloria Swanson, and Jack Webb (‘Dragnet’.)

Also with Sun Ari-Moon Lib: Wilbur Wright of Wright Bros fame, and essayist-journalist William Hazlitt, who said so aptly that:

“The love of freedom is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves.”

You’d think America – and Washington DC – had that down by now.

CEOs who lay off workers

Lee Stranahan is putting up a new website this weekend and promoting a petition to Congress to hold hearings with CEOs who lay off workers.

Read his article on HuffPo here:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lee-stranahan/congress-must-hold-hearin_b_148976.html

Oh dear! Apparently Mr. Stranahan has much more confidence in the US Congress than I do, for they’ve shown on whose side they work too many times…and it isn’t yours or mine.

But I agree that many US workers are now being laid off needlessly and are adding to the unemployment pool. I consider the massive layoffs as part of the larger plan to undermine our nation, and the script is being followed along with the Political Theater we witness on Capitol Hill.

The ‘Capitol Hill Theater’ I call it.

Did you think the auto CEOs and their first visit to Congress in fancy jets – then the turn-down for their bid at the public trough – then the subsequent statements by Pelosi and others – then the CEO’s more ‘modest’ second visit – do you notice the plot line of this farce?

Well, I hope Stranahan’s petition makes a difference, and I plan to sign it myself, just in case. But help for the American people from the US Congress is a long-deserted concept around here!

I’m not sure when it will go Live, but Stranahan’s new site address will be:  NoLayoffs dot org

“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…
