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.

USA’s Tax Day 2009: Mars conjunct Uranus

This year, America’s Tax Day (or as I usually think of it unfondly: ‘IRS Day’) is marked astrologically by a conjunction of Mars and Uranus, whose combined energies are given by *Ebertin as:

‘violent people; fighters for freedom; revolutionaries.’

How synchronistic can ‘As Above, So Below’ be?!

April 15’s Tea Party rallies across our nation are being billed as “a new American revolution.”

The recently formed political organization, the Boston Tea Party (an offshoot of the Libertarian Party) has based its stated platform on Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty. From withdrawal of ALL US troops from all nations, immediate ending of warrantless surveillance, searches and seizures, ending of deficit-ballooning government spending including Mr. Obama’s stimulus plan and the Bush-Paulson-Obama bailouts, AUDITING of the Federal Reserve Bank, and other such noble ideas, we may be tempted to think that April 15’s Tax Day Tea Party rallies really are only grassroots events. Or at least, we are encouraged to believe it to be so.

Me, I’m not so certain, and believe that this remains to be seen – although it may not be seen, for the ongoing transit of Neptune to America’s natal Moon (we-the-people) is causing all manner of deceit, fraud, dissolution, and confusion within our environment, including personal domestic scenes. Foreclosures and sleeping under bridges are part of this transit as is the movement to undermine American sovereignty.

And that’s not the whole of it, so if you wish to read more, try today’s SO’W post Tax Day Tea Party Astrology, if you like.

Plus, you may wish to refresh your memory concerning the original Boston Tea Party bwo Wikipedia.

I did, and it didn’t hurt a bit.

April 15, 2009 – Mars conj Uranus at 24Pis27 **Sabian Symbol for ’25Pisces’:

‘The Purging of the Priesthood’…


positive expression: revolt against all superficial exaltation of human nature;

negative/unconscious/shadow side: blind bigotry and vindictiveness.

Oh dear! Those who are organizing the Tax Day Tea Party rallies and some who participate may be ‘bigoted’!

Many protesters are emphasizing anti-Obama-administration sentiments, even though the financial heisting and bailouts of summer/autumn 2008 began under the Bush administration.

But Pres. Obama took the financial baton from Bush on Jan 20, 2009 and proceeded to fill his economic team with Clintonites, Goldman-Sachs denizens, and other world bankers – a big fat clue to Mr. Obama’s true allegiances, I fret.

Yet ‘bigoted’ also includes class warfare of the rich vs the lower/middle classes (those dratted unwashed masses) and we know that the top earners in our society are very afraid their tax monies might go to someone who actually needs aid just to survive…perhaps it’s ‘survival of the unfitted’ since being ones brother’s keeper has gone totally out of style with the morally suspect monied class.

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?

BBC’s Obama Diary: 100 Days

The BBC has put up an Obama Diary of events from the fabled ‘First 100 Days’ of his presidency which will be coming to their conclusion at April’s end.

Check it out!

AfPak now a US priority

Saving AfPak is a priority of the Obama administration, and for everyone’s sake we should hope that someone manages to keep the lid on this particular powder keg.

AIG bonuses? Bush and Paulson did it

Regardless of the Obama critiques making the rounds of late concerning AIG bonus payments, the following information is more in line with my own memory from November 2008 concerning the Bush-Paulson Bailout Bill and CEO retention payments.

May all GOPers and their promoters take their ginkgo biloba on schedule so they can remember just Who Was Playing President way back in November 2008:


Sometimes I think there’s no end to how stupid politicians think we are.  That’s when they bring out the usual, tiresome tactics – lying, obfuscating matters, and providing ‘hot-button’ diversionary issues – with the media’s help – like the AIG bonuses which pale in comparison to their ultimate mega-payday compliments of US taxpayers.

My usual guide is this: when a politician or political party says, LOOK HERE at this stew, always look ‘over there’ to see what they have bubbling on the back burner that works against our interests.

It will be much more substantial and long-range than the tacky sideshows and pot-boilers they promote to keep us divided against one another.

More on AIG by Robert Reich

The more I read of the AIG bonus kerfluffle the stinkier it gets and I suspect that you’ve been noticing the odor, too.

Robert Reich continues revealing AIG-Obama-Geithner-Goldman-Sachs shenanigans which you might wish to call incompetence.

I’m calling it out of control because it’s too big to handle and you just can’t hide it:


Whew! I think we’ll all be glad when one of the ‘money planets’ – Venus – goes Direct and begins to move in forward fashion, won’t we?

Obama admits ‘screw up’ on Daschle nom

Speaking with Anderson Cooper, President Barack Obama has admitted he ‘screwed up’ concerning his Tom Daschle nomination – or in the way it was handled…here, you can read the interview for yourself if you missed it on CNN:

Gregg voted to abolish the Commerce Dept!

What is Obama thinking by tagging Judd Gregg for head of the Department of Commerce? Gregg voted in 1995 to abolish the department!!


Now if all my rants about the undermining of America, destroying the US dollar, establishing a so-called one-world-government based on totalitarian principles , etc, have a speck of merit, this crazy idea of Obama to nominate Gregg makes some sense…especially if you think it’s part of the NWO agenda, baby!

Otherwise, it’s crazy and difficult to believe that there’s no better nominee for the post than a Bushie. Of course, the NWO has a pecking order within it – and the US Chamber of Commerce is one of its main players.

So there we go: fruit basket turn-over and America’s one-party system masquerading as two parties now morphing one into the other in plain sight.

Things must be pretty solid in the take-over department now because they don’t care anymore if we notice what they’re up to.

You know, when Abe  Lincoln appointed opponents to his cabinet it was political inspiration and a brilliant move at that time.

But in 2009, it seems either to be shooting oneself in the foot or a facet of the new economic order that we-the-people hear so much about – the class warfare agenda that we should be doing more to combat. That one.
