Obama DOJ more secretive than Bush DOJ?

You’ve probably heard by now about the current flap concerning the Obama administration’s upping the ante on secrecy at the DOJ – even worse than the Bush administration’s fancy footwork to circumvent the Constitution.

When Obama admirer Keith Olbermann, Daily Kos, and others complain so loudly, the new administration should listen and make other plans. Legal ones would be good.

My worst suspicion is that the US government (no matter who is in the Oval Office) has many things to hide and the Obama adm has realized how awful they are and think that the White House will crumble if we-the-people find out about them.

And perhaps they’re not quite ready for us en masse to be in the streets.

What say you?

Election in November or not?

As the 2008 campaign endlessly grinds on I’m receiving more comments here and there (‘there’ being Stars Over Washington) that the US may not be having elections this November, the lastest from one of my favorite people,  Jilly.

And I’ve written on the possibility myself – October Surpise, false flag op, martial law – whatever it takes for Bush to stay in the White House (a horrid horrid thought, isn’t it?) if they think McCain can’t win; so when readers with intuitive abilities tell me that the Nov elections may be called off or disrupted beyond repair, it makes me think yet again that what has been worked toward for so long and at such price and effort will not be easily surrendered to the ‘other team’ – if at all.

If that’s the case, it’s too bad that America and the needs of the American people get lost in their egoistic, power-mad shuffle.

Today I’ve been looking at the Secondary Progressed midpoints (and charts) for the Democratic Party (born May 13, 1792 NS; 12:00 pm LMT; Philadelphia, PA) and the Republican Party (born July 6, 1854 NS; 5:00 pm LMT; Jackson, MI.)

Since tonight marks the last of the three presidential debates, I’m comparing today’s Seconday midpoints with those of Nov 4, 2008 and for Jan 20, 2009, and the only difference is in the Dem’s chart…the diffcult Saturn/Pluto duo rises by Nov 4…

Saturn/Pluto = ASC: placed in cumbersome and difficult circumstances; separation; bereavement.

Also the Saturn-Pluto midpoint in the Republican Party’s Progressions is conj Sec NN and will continue to be for some time: common suffering shared with others; the misery of the masses.

Now there are many more good indcations than the one negative one for both parties. The Dems’ Sec Sun is conj Sec Mc, for instance. But I looked for what changed between now and Jan20, 2009.

And it’s no weakness or lack in Astrology for Astrology describes the many levels of life we all contend with – good mixed with bad. Plus, motives always matter and sometimes things come seemingly from out of nowhere – at least we are unconscious of them until they actually occur, then it’s a Doh! Moment a la Homer Simpson, isn’t it? “Who saw that coming?” we ask incredulously.

Well, since I’m “under the weather” today and feeling somewhat puny, I’ll simply close with the current Secondary ‘Images for Integration’ for each party.  You might get a kick out of them – or perhaps a chill:

Democrats: Sun Sag-Moon Cap: “In the year 2999, a courageous explorer goes on a quest for knowledge of the past which opens up for man a hopeful future on another planet…With patient skill a rock climber scales a seemingly impossible mountain peak.”

Republicans: Sun Sag-Moon Cancer: “A homing pigeon…An evangelist offers a vision of personal salvation…An international nanny…Jimi Hendrix’s Woodstock rendition of ‘The Star Spangled Banner’…William Blake’s watercolour, ‘Teach These Souls to Fly’.” (Tate Gallery, London.)

Heads-Up Oct 15: check the Pages list in the sidebar column for a sprinkling of astrological notes on journalist Keith Olbermann (Jan 27, 1959) and a link to the text of his call yesterday for John McCain to suspend his campaign.

Also added: in the category list for ‘2008 campaign’ you’ll find “2008 Electopedia” which is a great resource I’m late finding but am glad I did…it has all sorts of info on Obama and McCain so you can compare and contrast – in no special order a few are: Biggest Lie, Worst Enemy, Best Debate Smackdown, Mentor, Superstitions, and more – all in one spot. Handy!

Letterman on McCain’s campaign suspension

David Letterman just said that “you don’t suspend your campaign! McCain was to have guested on Letterman’s show tonight…now Keith Olbermann is the substitute. Good.

“If he suspends his campaign maybe in the White House he’d suspend being president.” And other similar words to that effect, including: this isn’t the way a hero acts.

He’s also asking why McCain doesn’t put Palin out to pinch hit for him. But you don’t suspend your campaign, Dave keeps repeating. You let your VP candidate carry on the campaign.

“So do you think he’ll ever come back?” Letterman asks.

“Not after the drubbing you just gave him, ” says Paul Shaeffer. (Laughter ensues.)

Dave says that this doesn’t “smell right.” It is rather odd, I agree. Suspend your campaign?

“Maybe because his poll numbers are sliding.”

Letterman is smarter than he lets on. Now it’s time for ‘Top 10 Questions’ – about the McCain campaign. If McCain has to rush back to fix the economy, Obama and Biden will have to, too, frets Dave.

Olbermann says that if one of the debates has to be cancelled (not delayed) it would be to McCain’s advantage that the VP debate is scratched from the schedule!

More from Olbermann: forget foreign policy – make Friday night’s debate “about the economy.”

Hey now – that’s way too common sensical to work for Out-of-his-depth McCain!

“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…
