Any US taxpayers feeling hoodwinked yet?
Clinton Unveils New Aid Projects in Pakistan Visit but meanwhile on Capitol Hill, it's dandy fine if Americans do without jobs, mortgage payments, food, and the basic stuff of life.
Doesn't the government of Pakistan have any billions of its own with which to build "hospitals"? Perhaps they tucked back a few coins out of the veiled billions we've generously sent them through the years from our now-empty piggy banks?
Well, you know what they say...troubles are often self-created. And the nuclear monster that at first must have seemed like quite a genie was let out of the bottle by none other than the US government with the enabling of German scientists and others.
So as usual, the American people and their resources are being held hostage to the fallacy of 'national security' which works when either money or liberty are extorted in an elusive exchange for our imagined safety when really, the only things we can count on anymore from our own government are lies, obfuscations, fraud, extortion, and false flag ops waged against we-the-people, often mounted in order to emotionally manipulate us into fighting imperialist wars.
Once central banks allowed foreign investors into the American hen house, I suppose our trajectory was set (downward.) The outcome has now become clear to those who read the signpost at the crossroads.
But I can still feel steamed over it all, can't I? Sir Francis Bacon, Adam Weishaupt, and their Illuminati ilk can take a hike if they like. I wish they would. And leave decent people alone.
For as British PM Benjamin Disraeli (1804 - 1881) penned in his novel Coningsby, the New Generation (and notice it's a 'new generation' similar to what the power elite tout openly now as a 'new international world order' - whether average Joes and Jills want it or not, here 'it' comes.)
"For you see, the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes."
Astrologically, that's a perfect reference to 12th house activities ans secret deals behind the door as discerning planets in 12th house, especially the Sun, ought to know. 12th house involvements in Mundane Astrology = Politics.
And now for a few more grumpily typed words on the November 2010 midterm elections:
Republicans? Really? You want to reward the GOP for 8 years of Bush-Cheney policies that led to Financial Collapse 2008? Really? Whose team are you batting for? No, I don't care much for Dems either but the ruling class has us by the nape of our necks and I'm still growling over the Bush-Cheney crime spree brought upon our nation in coup-like fashion by a complicit SCOTUS.
If you'll remember, it took the attacks of 9/11/01 for the general population to stop questioning the legitimacy of the Bush-Cheney regime which so soon turned into a nightmare of loss, death, and war. Not an accident, that. Bullhorns for democracy! Export freedom with each bomb! Appeal to the emotions of the American people and they'll fight any way, any one, any time. It's been proven effective, say the marketers!
So November 2, 2010 will arrive before we can wink twice. Don't forget to vote. Even though we know that the old truism he who counts the vote decides the winner was never more obvious or applicable than it is in the New Millennium, yet we must not stay home on election day! On any election day.
This morning Cokie Roberts said on NPR that the GOP hope to turn the Gulf Oil Disaster into a political disaster for the Democrats. (Never mind the cynicism of that stance!) One assumes that the fact that President Obama has taken a lot of BP's cash will help the GOP with the ploy. Republican leader Mitch McConnell says it took the administration '70 days' to order skimmers sent to the Gulf as if that were all the White House was up to in the interim.
Well, whoever advised the President himself not to rush to the Gulf Coast asap after the April 20 catastrophe gave him bad advice in the public relations department. But that's smoke and mirrors, too, for with Mr. Obama's walk-on-water status now sunk, was he expected to ankle his way out to the Deepwater Horizon rig and patch things up with a bunch of presidential duct tape?
For Hurricane Katrina, Bush was in Texas eating birthday cake with John McCain, blithely unaware of, or uncaring about, the suffering occurring in the Gulf Coast region. It always seemed to me that these operatives of the GOP were celebrating more than McCain's birthday but maybe that was only me.
Yet be all that as it may...reward 8 years of Bush-Cheney policies with a majority in the November 2010 midterms?
Well, if the Republican Party does take more seats than Dem candidates or incumbents in November 2010 it will result in more of the blind-leading-the-blind sort of governing with the R Party being past their Secondary Progressed Full Moon (12Gem08) of February 18, 2005 but not by much - they're now in the Disseminating phase as of March 19, 2009 and puttin' out the White House jibes and as much misinformation as they can get away with and will help them claw their way up, as they think. But their party's Sec Full Moon is past culminating stage so party bigwigs won't be shining as they'd like even if a rout occurs this November yet they can still do much damage to this country from whatever foxhole they shoot from.
Like Bush-Cheney invading Iraq under a retrograde Jupiter (the General) - starting a war from weakness, not strength - we may expect the obstruct-Dems-at-all-costs party of the GOP (or BOP, if you prefer to add Big Oil to their name - I forgive you if you do) we may expect that a Republican majority in House (or in Senate) will govern from a weakened position if they win which, as we've seen, effectively stalls legislation proposed on behalf of all but the rich and mighty whose handmaidens serve behind-the-scenes masters on Capitol Hill and whose true identities are other than they appear.
