Visit the Nixon Library website for links to today's release of the text of Nixon's Grand Jury testimony on the Watergate break-in and cover-up including the "by accident" erasure of 18 1/2 minutes of White House tape by Nixon's secretary Rose Mary Woods.
Nixon testified that when he found out it was 18 1/2 minutes gone 'missing' instead of only 4 minutes (4 minutes' worth of erasure was apparently deemed okay by his nibs) he "--practically blew my stack."
Is that like being almost practically pregnant? Then it's impossible. My guess is that Dick "practically blew his stack" when he found out what the 18 1/2 minutes contained and how damaging it would be--worth the sass of erasing it--then he erupted with volcanic anger (as control freaks tend to do) until the conversations were erased as per his shouted instructions, or upon orders he received from his illuminized bosses. Or was he worried about what they would say and do if the full tapes were heard? Perhaps global syndicate bosses are implicated for their control of his administration!
But then I lived in DC during Nixon's tenure so I'm probably quite biased against Tricky Dick--but I'm also biased against the forces that may have set Nixon up and knocked him off his presidential perch of power. Oh well, who knows? Henry Kissinger knows who they are and why Nixon had to go. He was too unstable and paranoid for them to direct, probably.
Here's the complicit Washington Post's article on Nixon's farewell announcement on the eve of his resignation from office. His 10th house Saturn was not amused by his years of dissing Saturn's demands for honesty and accountability in life--and horrifically, the traditional potential of a 10th-house Saturn's 'fall from grace' ensued.
America's natal horoscope (Sibly version, July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA) also has a 10th house Saturn with a particular mission which relates to its exaltation is Libra, sign of the Scales of Balance and 'Blind' Justice. There is our basic and fatal flaw--our infiltrated legal system and corruption of Trial By Jury (habeas corpus.)
Funny, but I've busy blogging and had no idea that Nixon's testimony would finally be released today--under the rays of our current Solar Eclipse from July 1, 2011 @ 9Can12 (horoscope shown) with Mercury, ruler of testimony, texts, news, and re-leases (Mercury's Rx Station occurs on Nov 24, 2011) of info--and with an eclipse--uncovering secrets and secreted documents such as these.
As previously noted, 9Can12 falls snugly between US natal Jupiter (6Can) and Sun (14Can) with Sun representing The President (leader) in Mundane Astrology (for American horoscopes.)
And everyone knows that the Moon-ruled sign of Cancer is extremely self-protective like a shell on a Crab! It is also one of the signs most associated with America's natal chart (July 4, 1776), the others being Capricorn (Pluto Rx), Gemini (Uranus and Mars), Virgo (Neptune), and Libra (Saturn exalted there.)
But the newly revealed Nixon isn't very forthcoming as to what was said during those particular 18 1/2 minutes so don't get too excited unless perhaps you have a chance to look at a horoscope of one of the pivotal days, June 20, 1972, and make conjectures based on the Astrology of it. Other dates, or periods of time, are mentioned on the site so why not get out your trusty Richard Nixon natal chart if you're interested in the details of his transits and progressions during a tremendously stressful period in his life--and, by extension, in the life of our nation through the office of the president and his flawed leadership of spying and cover-ups.
Here's my astro-flavored post published in 2009 to mark the 33rd anniversary of Nixon's resignation. A link to the resignation letter he wrote to Kissinger is handily included.
So today's belated revelation of Nixon's Watergate testimony may also fall a bit *early yet still underneath the brightened purview of an upcoming Solar Eclipse since its date nears rapidly: November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37 which affects the 'Super Committee' (aka, 'Super Congress') report due on November 23, 2011...or else Draco the Dragon has his nasty way with us--aka, the global central bankers like the Houses of Rothschild, Rockefeller, and Morgan. (See quote and article link at post's end.)
Plus, we have the December 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse in Gemini, sign of young people such as are marching in the Occupy Wall Street movement with its march to Washington DC set to arrive in The District on November 23, 2011--in time for the 'Super Committee' recommendations of austerity.
Mars of Protest, Mars of Action
For the Lunar Eclipse of December 10, 2011, Mars in Virgo (military and police forces w Virgo's natural 6th house connotation, plus, Mars = males; also, protesters and marchers) squares the December Lunar Eclipse and my fretful expectation is that more confrontations are on the OWS v Riot Police menu.
And unless winter arrangements are made soon to extend or truncate the movement in order to protect demonstrators until warmer, safer weather breaks in favor of outside campers, it's difficult to see how victorious frozen fingers and toes can be. Perhaps a solution may be found.
Yes, the Obama White House announced today that it's ordering a new environmental impact report on the aquifer-threatening XL Pipeline construction across America from Canada to the Gulf, a tempest rife with crony capitalism alliances no matter the cost to We The People. Yet you know that Mr. Obama may only be kicking a very politically explosive can down the road past the 2012 election, don't you?
Obama's apparent capitulation on the forcing through of the XL Pipeline may hide a secret handshake on a devilish deal that intends to get its high-handed, oily way in the end because these reptile-brainers, so determined to boss everyone around, are nothing if not persistent and crazed.
Especially when financial vultures are sniffing huge profits in the air.
Democracy works when rulers fear The People!
*Eclipses may flavor or describe events two weeks or more prior to their actual manifestation. The July 11, 2011 Solar Eclipse was the initial eclipse in a brand new Saros Series and as such, predicting its influence has been exciting since eclipses often operate in their traditional role as "wild cards of the Universe" for they contain a definite Uranian vibe of 'expect the unexpected'. jc

My personal opinion:
People in government who can do nothing in office but undermine the functions of government don't deserve to be in government and shall be removed.

The genesis of the current and phasal global financial meltdown 2011/2012...
Amsel (Amschel) Bauer Mayer Rothschild, 1838:
"Let me issue and control a Nation's money and I care not who makes its laws".
Letter written by the Rothschilds of London to their New York agents to introduce their banking method into America:
"The few who can understand the system will be either so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favours, that there will be no opposition from that class, while, on the other hand, that great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that Capital derives from the system, will bear its burden without complaint and, perhaps, without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests."
"No opposition" to speak of--until 2011, you jackassian patriarch.
That last line from Old Amschel is what we hear in 2011 echoing in the "voting against their own best interests" charge leveled at Middle and Working Classes when--like political zombies and easily swayed dumbleheads--they vote Republican.
Which always turns out to be a real kick in the average guy's and gal's piggybank.
