Caller: I Don't Care About Clinton's Affair, I Lost a Son in War! - The Thom Hartmann Show

Quite a while back I stated here that a 2016 Hillary Clinton run for president meant Republicans would rehash all the Bill Clinton era scandals they could dredge up--the true and the false--and you must have noticed that the smear has begun as Bill enters the 2016 campaign trail. But please don't let the GOP distract you from the more important issues before us now by spewing true or ginned up Clinton 'gates' and affairs from both then and now. The GOP will have to dredge extra hard since their dramatic Benghazi Committee Hearings didn't play against Hillary and her presidential bid the way they'd hoped for it was a rather deflated affair:

If it weren't so tragic it would be amusing how ultra-sensitive to lies Republican Party politicians are while neglecting to mention their own that have gotten millions of people killed.

An example: I'm sure you remember that congressman Joe Wilson just couldn't help heckling President Obama during his Address to Congress by shouting out "You lie!" because Wilson felt such deep concern for honesty and truth:

Bush Jokes about WMD - video

You Lie!

Since Hillary Clinton's testimony at Thursday's 'Benghazi Hearing' the conservatives I'm running across can't call her "liar" often enough (not that they already hadn't) yet I suppose that if no Republican politician had ever told a lie...such as "Let's invade, bomb, and occupy Iraq because Saddam Hussein has WMDs" (weapons of mass destruction)... such a charge against Hillary might carry more weight. But perhaps they don't realize that each time they call Secretary Clinton a liar they remind the public that all politicians lie--it's what they do.

Here's a video from 2004 that is in as bad a taste as anything can be--Bush trying to make a joke out of his own lie that scammed us into war in spite of the dire consequences that others had to suffer and still suffer because of Bush's deliberate war criminal sorriness and the hubris of a bunch of neocon jack*sses with an obsession for grasping world domination and plundering natural resources like oil and poppy fields:

Did The Conservatives Get What they Wanted From Clinton's Benghazi Testimony? clip

Oct 23, 2015: Ed Schultz interviews a conservative Heritage Foundation member concerning yesterday's 11-hour Benghazi Committee hearing as she spins the Republicans' performances and questions as dandy fine (my southernism, not hers--just peachy works, too):

What I Garnered from the October 22, 2015 Benghazi Hearing

by Jude Cowell

For me, the primary points brought out in yesterday's hearing concern the over dramatized brouhaha over Hillary Clinton's emails particularly from her friend Sidney Blumenthal and the lack of emails to her from Ambassador Chris Stevens: the fact that State Department communiques were and are by cable, phone, conference calls, and in person--not by email. Seems Republicans were off the mark on that one along with their misunderstanding (or ignoring) of the government protocol of the State Department which Ambassador Stevens necessarily followed to contact the security officials who made the decisions.

Then there's the decreased funding for embassy security budgets thanks to the US Congress which were made critical in 2011 along with automatic Sequestration cuts soon taking effect. You'll remember that Sequestration austerity along with the 'Super Congress' idea intended to deflect criticism came to fruition under the sinister auspices of a difficult Solar Eclipse @2Sag35--where accountability-bringer Saturn now trods. Here's the DC horoscope with details on this eclipse with its peculiar turn of events theme.

Immediately after the tragedy, I suspect the Obama administration's attempt to hide the Benghazi attacks under cover of a controversial video protest rather than as a terrorist event (in an election year) was also intended to deflect criticism, a politically motivated tactic which the Republican Party has used many times themselves and will do so again. After all, Washington DC is based more on fakery than truth and when truth does come out it's usually extremely inconvenient. That's a good reason for considering eclipses affecting the city and the US government since as Uranian 'wild cards of the Universe', eclipses tend to suddenly reveal hidden truths and dark secrets for all to see!

It will be interesting to tune in tonight (10.23.15) at 9:00 pm edt to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show to hear Rachel's interview with 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton. No, I am not a Hillary fan but will vote on November 8, 2016 for a dirty mop before I vote Republican.

Trey Gowdy Tells the World: GW Bush is a Traitor! video

My thought is that Republicans and other politicians in breach of the public trust should certainly be able to recognize a traitor since it takes one to know one.

October 22, 2015 Re-Match: Gowdy 1964 vs Clinton 1947

by Jude Cowell

On September 3, 2015 I posted a video of Thom Hartmann discussing Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and his "political witch hunt" against Hillary Clinton, a 2016 candidate who is again scheduled to testify before a Gowdy-run Benghazi hearing on Thursday October 22, 2015.

Looking at a horoscope for Oct 22, 2015 set for Capitol Hill it looks like fairly smooth sailing for Hillary with negligence as the main charge against her if a rising Saturn @3Sag04 tells the legal tale (Moon-Jupiter = Saturn.) Check the 10th house of Career, Public Status, and Reputation and we find quite a fortuitous line up of planets: Venus (leader of a Locomotive pattern of success and executive power) @12Virgo, generous Jupiter @15Virgo, Mars @17Virgo, North Node @00Libra (conjunct US natal MC in the 'Sibly' chart), and testifying Mercury @12Libra, a critical degree, with Mercury also ruling hearings and such. And at 10:00 am edt, Venus precisely conjoins MC on Capitol Hill...

A rounding-up of lady Venus' degree to 13Sag gives a very appropriate Sabian Symbol (word picture): "A Powerful Statesman Overcomes a State of Political Hysteria" which Dane Rudhyar describes as "a personage endowed with CHARISMA, this elusive and mysterious power that comes from a man's or woman's openness to the power of planetary evolution."

Plus, considering recent news reports that undermine Trey Gowdy and his Benghazi Committee, it would save US tax payers time and money if this wastrel Republican partisan 'take-down' of a democratic candidate--their political nemesis--was canceled though of course you may disagree. And naturally Committee Chair Gowdy is defending Committee Efforts ahead of Clinton's appearance.

Yet there may be a fly in Hillary's Benghazi ointment and his name is Trey Gowdy.

Born on August 22, 1964 just prior to the Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Pluto (1965-1966), Gowdy's natal Pluto @13Virgo is also triggered these days by Venus denoting a period when strategy is necessary in order to manipulate outcomes and he attempts to take charge of every detail. Simultaneously, Pluto @13Cap now trines his natal Pluto, a generational influence denoting added power (or the demand for it.) Plus, Gowdy's natal Mercury @17Virgo Rx is activated on October 22 by transit Mars which shows a tremendous increase of ideas and plans, a faster pace of life, and which partially describes his insistent demands that others speak (testify) in combative group sessions (hearings.) Of course, when Mercury and Mars are linked there's a decided leaning toward Politics.

In addition, Gowdy's natal Uranus @9Virgo has recently been activated by the Virgo line-up mentioned above so unpredictability is part of the picture (ex: Kevin McCarthy's inconvenient revelation on the political nature of the Benghazi Committee to lower Hillary's poll numbers.) With quirky rebel Uranus involved, alliances breaking apart and/or unusual if temporary partnerships are possibilities for Mr. Gowdy.

Now it seems interesting to me that a natal midpoint picture in Gowdy's natal horoscope is now echoed or stimulated by a transiting Mercury-Uranus = Pluto T-Square which is in effect on October 22, 2015. Mercury-Uranus = Pluto: added slurs and vulgarities in speech (Munkasey); getting the biggest job done in a commanding way (Tyl); a hasty realization of plans; over-strained nerves (Ebertin.)

And after three long years of Benghazi hearings we may wish to note that Mr. Gowdy's natal Saturn (authority; responsibility; accountability; fear) @1Pis49 Rx has in recent years been touched by nebulous Neptune's fairy wand of delusion with Neptune a higher octave ruler of Pisces. This marks a time when one becomes even more idealistic than usual and misguided tendencies cast an obscuring veil over one's sense of Saturnian reality. Add to that Gowdy's natal Neptune @15Scorpio--conjunct Hillary Clinton's natal Venus @16Scorpio--and it is doubtful that her relationships and diplomatic efforts can ever be truly and clearly perceived by Benghazi Committee Chair Trey Gowdy whose natal Sun (ego) conjoins royal star of Persia, Regulus, the king.
