Look what turned up today as I investigate the highest ranking (Grand Master) Freemason to helm the US Presidency, Gerald Ford - a Ronald Reagan bio timeline with notable quotes, mostly concerning Reagan's Iran-Contra scandal.
You'll find a few details on the Reagans' use of astrologer Joan Quigley, too, but my favorite tidbit has to be a handy reminder of Reagan's testimony before the Tower Commission (referred to as the 'Tower Board meeting' which may be how his handlers termed it to him) concerning the Iran-Contra affair when Reagan thoughtlessly read his stage directions aloud:
"If the question comes up at the Tower Board meeting, you might want to say that you were surprised."
And some people question why I refer on this blog to the mimes and scripts of the US Congress and the rest of Washington politics as Capitol Hill Theater.
Update 4:15 pm edt: having read a few websites and blogs about President Gerald Ford, 33rd degree Mason, I can recommend one to you concerning Ford's membership in the Royal Order of Jesters, a secret society said to be within the Shriners.
This link contains a photo of Gerald Ford in his Paladin fez hat with its tassle, Crescent Moon of the East, and star. It's quite a vision especially to any American voters who may still be under the impression that it's we-the-people who elect our presidents. Cover your kids' eyes though for you'll find mention of the Jesters' favorite "fun" sexual practice - it promotes 'brotherhood' y'see.
Hmmm..."Jesters"...now where have I found that reference recently?
Why, in the Sabian Symbol for the 2009 Inaugural Moon with the Inaugural chart good for 4 years of a presidential term, that's where. Yes, that's the 2009 Inaugural Moon which represents the people in a national chart.
Well, perhaps you've previously run across one of my posts during Campaign 2008 from October on Barack Obama's huge rally under the Masonic Arch in St. Louis, Missouri when an estimated 100,000 people turned out, wasn't it? Remember the aerial photos?
(And secret societies adore it when the general public pays homage to things they don't really understand are being presented by society members.)
So am I implying that President Obama is a member of, or is closely affiliated with, Freemasonry and perhaps with other secret societies as well?
Of course I am. This is Stars Over Washington, y'all.
Here once again are the symbolic details for '30Sco' as given in The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones (who may have been a Freemason, too, for all I know):
2009 Inaugural Moon 29Sco45...'30Sco' = "The Halloween Jester"...SPONTANEOUSNESS.
Positive expression: a gift for making the desires and ambitions of self not only of interest but of actual value to others;
Negative/unconscious/shadow side: ineptness of self-expression and contempt for established values. #
My boldface. Actually theirs are pretty bold faces, too, even with silly tassledy hats on.
