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.

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:

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 article round-up

The Point of No Return

Neither China nor the Saudi princes are buying any more failing investment banks.

They’ll leave that to the US taxpayer.

The Party’s Over

By Patrick J. Buchanan

The Crash of 2008, which is now wiping out trillions of dollars of our people’s wealth, is, like the Crash of 1929, likely to mark the end of one era and the onset of another.

Paulson and Bernanke Stampede Washington – Continue Raid On The Public Purse Citing Grave
Financial Threats, Officials Ready Massive Rescue

By Binyamin Appelbaum and Lori Montgomery

The Bush administration is urgently preparing a massive intervention to” revive” the US financial system, including a plan to sweep away the unpaid loans that are choking banks and blocking the flow of money to borrowers. – Paulson and Bernanke presented a “chilling” picture of the state of the financial system, according to a participant in the meeting who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Did you vote for George Bush? Just wonderin’ since he’d never succeeded at any business venture before 2000 and look at him now – bailed out by US taxpayers again.

Of course, conspiracy theorists think this economic collapse is part of the one-world-government plans that were put in place decades ago. Or centuries ago if you subscribe to the Great Seal’s reverse-with-its-all-seeing-eye theory.

Watching Bush, Cheney, Greenspan, and now Bernanke and Paulson in action, I find it difficult to discount the conspiracy theory that they know what they’re doing and that the economic, governmental, and social net failures of America were on the menu all along.

If so, these social tinkerers think that the chaos they are creating is “worth it” especially since they will never suffer as will we, and that their longed-for New World Order is only possible by destructuring society’s systems to make way for for a new start.

Pluto in Capricorn.

You know I still use Bush’s first Inaugural chart 2001 to represent all of his tenure with its 8th house (debt, credit, insurance, finance, shared resources, death, transformation, etc) full of Pluto and Chiron snugged around the Moon in Sagittarius…the People, crowded by the violent and oppressive corporatism/fascism pair, Pluto/Chiron. Its ‘too close for comfort’ flavor is out in the open now, isn’t it? Too late, the trap is sprung!

So my facetious “thanks” goes out to all who voted for George Bush. Now will you compound the issue and give Bush a vote of “confidence” by voting for John McCain? Pluto may be in Capricorn but we don’t have to hand them our heads on plates. Actually we already did that in 2000 and again in 2004. Yeeks. And we couldn’t even get Bush-Cheney impeached to show our displeasure!

But it’s 2008, and as I always say: a vote for John McCain is like a vote for Karl Rove – and that most definitely includes Sarah Palin, the lure. The Angler has spoken (aka Cheney, who must be quite smitten with Palin.)

So even if Barack Obama moves into the White House, his opponents ‘have ways’ and have shown themselves capable of ANYTHING to keep their grasp on power and their agenda on track.

Another option is that Obama plays the game their way and the American people are still in the soup. Rise up? Laws are in place to tamp us down. They call it ‘martial law’ but by then most people will realize what it really is – if they don’t already. Perhaps we’ll be too cowed and hungry to murmur our disapproval. “A hungry man is not a free man.” I disremember who said it, but it’s all too true.

Woo! After seeing the lovely and hilarious Craig Ferguson in concert last evening, you’d think I’d be in a lilting mood today. But one quick look at this morning’s news and the Craig glow fades all too soon…just a glance at the latest doings of those cheeky monkeys of Washington who are ruining our children’s and grandchildren’s lives puts me back in my political snit of miffdom all over again.

An American’s view from Paris: McCain’s speech

Tara Bradford, who writes from Paris, France on her blog, Paris Parfait, has summed up many of my own feelings about John McCain’s speech last evening, and you may wish to read/comment here:

http://parisparfait.typepad.com/paris_parfait/2008/09/mccains-speech.html

You know I tried not to think of hitler’s youth with the chanting and flag furling but it was difficult, very difficult – only a heil was missing in last night’s hero worshipping exercise. And the GOP’s determination to shove it down the public’s throat was painfully obvious, too – as Tara points out, no actual solutions to our problems were mentioned.

It’s as if a percentage of Americans can still be swayed and bamboozled by the old nationalist propaganda without looking beyond the surface of the slogans, code words, emblems, and symbols of what we like to THINK America is…or once was.

Mass hynosis? Trance-like states? Bush used the same personality cult ploy which couldn’t have been more obvious last evening than if Karl Rove’s snout had been spied peeking out from behind the curtain.

And, as we would expect, McCain played the terror card, too, lest we forget the ‘official’ line about the attacks of 9/11.

November approaches and the rig is on the way!

Moon back in bounds as Obama enters Denver 8.27.08

This morning, Aug 27, 2008, at appr 10:46 am MDT, the Moon returns within bounds of the earthly plane, aka ‘back in bounds’ while zodiacally placed at 24Can03 (9th house in Denver) – and Barack Obama arrives at the DNC.

Curious degree, if you don’t mind rounding up to ’25Can’ – the natal US Mercury’s degree (Rx.) And Mercury represents orators, communicators, and young people – esp those who deliver The Good News.

America could use a slice o’that. But delivered on whose behalf?

Carelli gives the symbol for ’25Can’ as “A wild horse” suggesting a questing, Sagittarian influence, full of noble purpose. Reminds me of Joe Biden’s promise that Obama – and he – will ‘transform the world.’

It needs reforming, but on whose behalf?

In the Sabian Symbols Dane Rudhyar gives ’25Can’ as: “A Will-full Man Is Overshadowed by a Descent of Superior Power’…re-miiind you of anyone? (as TV”s Craig Ferguson often queries.)

Keyword: ENDOWMENT.

And Bill Clinton, who speaks tonight, is reported to not ‘like’ Barack Obama whom he feels has failed to acknowledged his own contributions to the Dem Party. Egos clash for party control of course, yet this script may be as much party lore than anything and I can think of a few reasons how it could be useful to them pre-White House…if it’s dropped or disavowed with more fervor post-White House, we’ll see propaganda underpinings in it.

Some may see the invisible mantle of power as belonging to one standing behind Obama! Biden? Bill C? An unknown supporter whose name remains a mystery? Or an organization.

Back to ’25Can’…Rudhyar adds, and I quote:

“We are dealing here with a man who uses his will and positive imagination in facing his life problems. To him comes a pentecostal descent of power. He receives the ‘mantle of power,’ the grace (‘baraka’ in Sufi philosophy) or the Providential assistance which can make him a true leader in his culture.”

You didn’t miss the ‘BARAKA’ mention did you? Re-miiind you of anyone? The Sufi reference I’ll stay quiet about! Besides, I like Sufi music, you know. And the reference to ‘Providential assistance’ re-miiinds me of the fellows of 1776.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones’ version of the Symbols gives ’25Can’ as: “A Dark Shadow or Mantle Thrown Suddenly Over the Right Shoulder.”

Right shoulder = political right? dark shadow = Barack Obama and perhaps support from secret powers? The mantle of power = US presidency obviously which may be tip of a worldwide iceberg.

A ‘black man in the White House’ seems at this juncture to be on America’s menu unless Karl Rove high-jinks should prevail and vanquish.

(But that’s assuming the Rs want the helm ‘at this juncture’ with all the mess they’ve made – why not let Dems have a go and flail around a while so the GOP can emerge as victorious ‘saviors’ in 2012 thus preventing a Hillary Clinton presidency? With Mitt Romney now joined the ‘shadow’ operation of the McCain campaign, one wonders what’s in the works. The August 1 Solar Eclipse shadow effects are now underway where options open and the cosmos shows a solution which must be quickly acted upon.) 

And Jones’ keyword for this Moon-in-bounds/Obama-to-Denver degree?

DESTINY.

Got voter fraud on your mind?

Yes, November elections are just around the political corner and I’m thinking of voter fraud possibilities myself, which is why I’m glad to run across astrologer Robert Wilkinson’s article concerning the subject at his excellent Aquarius Papers site:

http://www.aquariuspapers.com/astrology/2008/07/election-fraud.html

Wonder if the congressional-subpoena-evading Karl Rove has skulked back into the country?

Karl No-Show Rove

As you know, Mr. Defiant was a no-show yesterday on Capitol Hill, so I penned a poem in honor of a man who knows all the Bush skeletons personally:

http://limslimericks.blogspot.com/2008/07/rove-no-show-poem-penned.html

Obama win stokes world’s admiration for America

As I’ve flitted about the interweb this morning reading world opinions on yesterday’s historic win for…gasp!…a black man, it seems America has impressed most of our fellow earth dwellers with her powers of reinvention.

Except in Pakistan. There a man was found to plop the terrorist fly smack dab into the middle of the Obama ointment because of an answer given months ago to the question of the US acting alone within Pakistani borders if the intell warranted it.

Sullied Sovereignty! It’s such a thorny question and situation since it’s not as if the billions paid to Musharraf and friends has resulted in much action against the terroists living within Pakistan’s mountainous regions. Is someone supposing the billions might be cut off if there’s an Obama in the White House?

That Obama has “threatened” Pakistan even before becoming president so he’ll be “more dangerous than Bush” seems to be a tactical view designed to help McCain in November in similar fashion to threatening bin Laden tapes being released just before US elections. Will people fall for this manipulative jingoist claptrap again?

Osama bin Laden (if indeed he had anything to do with the timing of the tape releases–lets’ ask HoSec), retained the ones he needed to justify his jihadist campaign so that America would be sure to stay in the Middle East. Does Rove have to do EVERYthing around GOP headquarters? Sheesh, give the hair-challenged fellow a rest, why doncha?

Bush’s Second Verse: McCain Refrain

Keeping the “war on terror” going will seemingly justify at least some of the Bush Doctrine and Cheney’s shotgun-1% Gang mentality while continuing to fuel the tank of the new world government coffers as they march the world toward the abyss of totalitarian regimism.

And the pleas of the American people, while hithertofore disregarded on Capitol Hill after November 2006 and disenfranchised by a secret government ruled by the secret hand, are now apparently in play with Obama’s candidacy. Tiresomely, that McCain has Karl Rove and his minions behind him to undermine our wishes once again is a political given.

The American people have always much preferred Peace and have had to be lied into war several times through the years by larger-agenda’d presidents. Will Obama toe that line as well?

How could he not with the secret backing he’ll need to move into the Oval Office? And if a landslide vote can do it for him, he’ll be in danger if he fails to buckle under the pressure to change his enitre value system on behalf of the globalist plan for world domination.

Sadly, we’ve trusted our government in the past and this is what it’s come to. Lies and dirty dealings from the GOP–with Dem Party enabling–will continue to be on OUR agenda with McCain in the White House for sure, with Obama there…maybe not so much. And can you listen to McCain drone for four years?

Yet hope really does spring eternal in the human heart. It’s finding a beating heart in Washington that’s the problem.

Mr.A.Cat has sent me a fresh political limerick in honor of Obama’s win in Montana, so if you’re ready for a groan you’ll find it published here:

Dost Thou Harken to Hillary?

Well, if you’re one of the two people who read this blog or Stars Over Washington, you already know what a ‘populist’ I am with America the only nag in any race as far as I’m concerned. No apologies for it either.

So when Hillary Clinton won Kentucky yesterday, and Barack Obama took Oregon, all as promised (or planned), I felt a lingering melancholy because I cannot seem to feel elated that a double-you-oh-em-ay-en may obtain the keys to White House at last. Paternalistic power morphs into maternalistic power. Big whoop, if my following misgivings for this country ensue.

You see, there’s this haunting lack of trust which Hillary engenders in me…call it Vince Fosteritis, if you wish, or call it a glop of concerns about her as cited in The Nation’s article of Nov 5, 2007, ‘Hillary’s Mystery Money Men’ which you will find online here:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1913243/posts

And no, it isn’t just Hillary and Bill, it’s Rs, Ds, and in between.

Terry McAuliffe was a linchpin where Hillary was concerned, yet his seeming neutralization doesn’t solve her Bush-Harken, Alan Quasha, Hassan Nemazee, oil-and-insider-trading connections. Nor does it bode well for the American people because many of the politicians thought to be above this corruption are down in the vat with the rest and in process of leaving the American people simmering in a thick stew.

Perhaps it was always too much to ask that Washington not stink like the swamp it was built upon. Why build it upon a swamp? Location, location, location–the coordinates were desired by America’s Masonic founders, swamp be dam*ed. As you may already know, the spot aligned astrologically with London and Cairo. (Yes–Cairo!!)

Now our so-called Manifest Destiny is decreeing the end of America as we know it, economic collapse and all with the dollar in process of going buh-bye along with American borders, our Bill of Rights, the US Constitution, and our legislative and judicial systems.

By their dismantling of America, these social tinkerers, these self-imagined ‘world servers’ of the one-world government intend to give lie to the liberal and peaceful principles which have been at the base of America’s very founding.

Biblically speaking, I must think of Revelation’s beast with the lamblike horns which ‘spake as a dragon’ and exercised ‘all the power of the first beast’…which foretells quite plainly the development of the spirit of intolerance and persecution. This beast will enforce some observance which will pay homage to the papacy, the first beast.

Such action will be directly contrary to the principles of the US government as they were set up, to the genius of its free institutions, and to the direct and solemn avowals embedded within the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution.

All this even though our founders sought to guard against the use of secular power on the part of the church which results in the inevitable consequence of intolerance and persecution!

It is only by flagrant violation of these safeguards to our nation’s liberty that religious observance can be enforced by civil authority, yet I believe that this is the wider path upon which we have been set by globalists who masquerade as “American politicians.”

They have their world banking and royal bloodline enablers and cousins, of course, and the now-beginning economic collapse of US currency and sovereignty is on the agenda for their world revolution.

Since President Bush41 had called for the New World Order, did you imagine that Bush43 would NOT be a continuation of their world domination plans? Have you seen how much Shrub has accomplished these long years with the attacks of 9/11/01 as the pretext?

Bill Clinton’s presidency was part of the process as will be the next White House shill–Hillary’s touted “inevitability’ is evidence of this continued dynasty. Yet they always have their bases covered for McCain or Obama will dance to the NWO tune at our expense–especially once the initial honeymoon is over.

And part of the purposeful hubbub and confusion roiling the 2000 election bwo enabler Jeb’s Florida involvement…(he really delivered, in spite of what the film “Recount” may imply with its attractive thespianism)…was to further disenfranchise our voting system and the American electorate’s faith in its honesty. Then SCOTUS showed its hoofprints in order to seal the coup.

Yes, the symbol of “lamblike” horns of this beast is purposefully gentle and harmless like a little woolly lamb, isn’t it? For in order for the US to form an ‘image to the beast’ religious power must so control the civil government that state authority must be employed to accomplish the church’s ends…and probably perpetrated in the name of “security.”

Protestant churches have followed in Rome’s hoofprints by forming alliances with worldly powers and have shown us in recent years that an individual’s conscience may be thought to be legislatable…a fallacy if there ever were one. Once you tell a man what his conscience SHOULD tell him is right, you overstep a line and seek to negate and make mockery of what is obviously his personal conscience by definition.

So when Protestant churches seek more of their “world councils” of unity, beware.

And when the leading churches of the United States unite upon points of doctrine which they hold in common and influence government to enforce their decrees, you’ll know that Protestant America is forming an image of the Roman hierarchy–with infliction of civil penalties soon to follow. Yesiree bobtail, the melding of church with state is Always a bad idea for the common good.

Scripture says that in the last days men shall be lovers of their own selves…do you think we’re there yet?

Well, my lamentable habit of composing-at-keyboard has led to these sparse and browner pastures for sheep such as the American electorate to starve themselves upon. And it’s taking Democrats AND Republicans to implement the crimes and abominations mentioned above.

And while no politicians is exempt from my contempt on these and other issues, yet I will vote in November, for they can’t (as of yet) take that from me, even if my vote disappears down the rabbithole of Karl Rove’s political imagineering.

My slogan for today: US Politics–No Real Candidate for The People Need Apply.

And though it pains me to type it, if you’ve previously missed the above-linked article, please read it before November, for you’ll find the name of Barack Obama listed as well…and as I’ve stated previously on my astro-political blog, Stars Over Washington, NO ONE can be a US presidential candidate without being vetted from “on high.”

Thus the United States of America is no longer a qualified entrant. If so, then my nag in the race has already lost.

 

The Pied Piper of May 20, 2008

With this evening’s primaries in Kentucky and Oregon near completion, there’s a lovely *Image for Integration for Sun in Gemini, Moon in Sagittarius:

“The Pied Piper leads his merry band of youths to the amphitheatre on the hill for an afternoon of music lessons, philosophical teachings, and baseball…”

And a second Image relating to the media:

“A young man goes abroad to attend untiversity and becomes a foreign correspondent.”

Being busy today in ‘the real world’ I’ve not had much time to keep up with news stories but I was sorry to hear of Sen. Kennedy’s malignant tumor diagnosis (I was hoping in my previous post that it wasn’t that serious), and of course, NPR’s coverage in China of the earthquake and its aftermath has been well done.

My heart goes out to the people there for their losses, and I find their pluckiness inspiring. So perhaps the second Image could be said to refer to NPR’s foreign correspondents in China, and the first–well, I can’t hear of ‘the hill’ without thinking of The Hill in our nation’s capital, such as it is.

Capitol Hill Theatre, I call it.

But I wonder who the Pied Piper could be? Don’t say, Barack Obama…but he is the one who attracts the larger crowds!

And that, in turn, reminds me of a certain Sabian Symbol at Obama’s MC (the Career/Public Status/WHY? Point of any chart) if we look at his ‘new’ birth chart using 7:11 pm…

“24Sco”: “Crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one man”…keyword: APPEAL…

pos: an almost spectacular ability to enlist the higher potentialities of everyone for some practical need of the moment;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: indiscriminate and carefree gullibility. (‘The Sabian Symbols in Astrology,’  Dr. Marc Edmund Jones.)

Spectacular to some, disturbing to others. GOP operatives such as Karl Rove are up to their undermining tricks spurred by Obama’s popular appeal, and we ain’t seen nuthin’ yet.

Now I’ll see if this brief post will publish…I never know anymore until I try, and there’s a large thunderstorm with possible hail on the way here this evening.

Looks like it’ll be a rainy night in Georgia, Y’all–a state where Barack Obama has raised over $2,200,000 and John McCain has raised less than Mitt Romney!
