2.24.12: CoffeePartyUSA Rally @ Supreme Court (video): overturn Citizens United!
Fewer than 300 people turned up at the CoffeePartyUSA Rally, several groups were represented including Boomers For Democracy ('enough is enough'!), and here you see former congressman and current President/CEO of Common Cause, Bob Edgar, speaking on our extreme need to overturn the globalism-boosting monstrosity known as Citizens United which has led to massive funding of political campaigns by SuperPACs with no public disclosure of the identities lurking behind the billions.
Now foreign entities meddling in US politics isn't new, of course, and earlier US presidents fought against it vociferously for they understood its dangers--yet thanks to SCOTUS 2010 and Justice John Roberts, the practice has now been placed on steroids in Campaign 2012. Is the Silent Coup of America basically a fait accompli?
To me it seems that the Supreme Court decision of January 2010 was a court overreach shoved onto the American people as if corporations and political ideologues needed help tipping the Scales of 'Justice' in their favor against The Little Man. If we need a real world example of 1% v 99%, the Citizens United decision resembles that remark and 'legally' embeds the inequality.
So perhaps the inclusion into our election process of mysterious donors from afar was one of the ruling's objectives. What do you think? After all, a US law that disenfranchises the American people (with the founders' insistence on setting up a by-for-of the people government) by allowing interference from invisible entities who care not a fig for democracy should, if justice prevails, be considered automatically null and void.
Citizens United's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series
The Solar and Lunar Eclipses of 2010 were no picnic and you may remember the June 26, 2010 Lunar Eclipse @ '5Cap' conjoining powerful, wealthy, stealthy Pluto. The Citizens United decision (Jan 21, 2010) falls into the 12 North Saros Series of solar eclipses and will forever influence the democracy-undermining ruling in some way, on some levels of its existence.
12N occurred on January 15, 2010 @ 25Cap01 (in 3rd house in Washington DC = mercurial 'decisions') with Mercury 5Cap34 Rx and Pluto 3Cap49 in 2nd house of Money and Values (Merc/Plu = political speech, mind control, excitable 'opinions', propaganda as heard in political campaigns ads and during what passes for 'debates') and its flavors include:
opportunities to accept greater responsibilities come suddenly, new commitments due to another person not being able to carry on; events may be difficult but outcomes for self-esteem are good. (Paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)
25Cap01, besides joining President Obama's natal Saturn Rx 25Cap20 (and his Jupiter Rx 00AQ52, both in his n 12th H of Politics and Karma) is also at Midheaven of US Inauguration horoscopes (as of 1937 held on January 20, Capitol Bldg), the point in a chart which describes The Goal of the swearing-in of US presidents--and these days, US natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx, planet of subversion and control, is always The Goal of the US government and of the White House, our Masonic White Lodge at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. (Click for some curious details including historic Freemasonry in Ireland.)
Plus, the transiting Pluto/Chiron midpoint conjoined Inauguration 2009's MC, spotlighting their combined energies in the Wider World (MC) of oppression, disenfranchisement, and primal violence which are being demonstrated in our quickly evolving police state at home, global police force abroad, and by the disenfranchisement of American voters with the implementation of Citizens United.
Besides global war for world domination, I wonder what other anti-sovereign, America-dissolving antics global-elite, transnational corporations have hidden inside their polluting pipelines?
Blog Note: okay, dear reader, it's back to packing for my office relocation next week. The month of March should bring this blogger--and Stars Over Washington--more settled conditions! jc
