Delay, WikiLeaks, Plame, and FOX 11.26.10

With Stars Over Washington still lounging about somewhere near Atlanta, GA on Thanksgiving holiday 2010 (well, there's only me, really) I've taken an hour to mosey round the Web and catch up on all the news I can smoosh into such a brief time.

Two of the four bits that stood out to me are the (long overdue) conviction of gangster Tom Delay for money laundering, and the upcoming release of a WikiLeaks cache revealing what global diplomats say about their governments and think of one another. How groovy! Sounds like a grand idea to me especially as an astrologer who likes to peek under the hood of politics at what political hoodlums and their brethren are secretly up to!

Might the new revelations from WikiLeaks cause havoc, interfere with so-called diplomacy, and undermine war? You betcha! Yet what causes more havoc than war - and perpetual, illegally waged at that?

Also the release of the Valerie Plame-Joe Wilson film starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn may be elucidating as well for I did have a chance to watch Tavis Smiley interview them this week on his program. It's the Hollywoodesque-ing of Washington, yes, but good stuff.

Fourth is the crazy tale of how the FOX organization's fans and dupes took a satirical story in The Onion as gospel: it was a "75,000-word email" supposedly sent "to America" by Barack Obama detailing what some readers determined was evidence of the President's 'breakdown' which convinced them that he should be removed from office based on only the "email", that he should be sent to a shrink, etc. (If he keeps such an appointment, he should take all Washington warmongers and certain media moguls with him.)

The amazing degree of their rabid-fox gullibility defies description except to be breath-taking in its hilarity - a definite gotcha moment for any anti-Obamaist who apparently can't recognize The Onion's satire when they see it because the fakery plays conveniently into a typical FOX News propaganda script. Duh.

So, in honor of anyone and everyone who leaks the truth, tells it from the start, appreciates those who do, or uses satire to point it out, here is a quote brought to you compliments of the excellent Information Clearing House Newsletter where you'll find interesting articles galore on these and other newsworthy topics:

"Every man who says frankly and fully what he thinks is so far doing a public service. We should be grateful to him for attacking most unsparingly our most cherished opinions."

-Sir Leslie Stephen (1832-1904), literary essayist, author; Source: The Suppression of Poisonous Opinions, 1883

See you all on Sunday - opinions, hood-peekings, and all!

Mercury stations direct tonight

At the White House, Mercury will go direct 25AQ25 at 11:38 pm est tonight.

As you know, Mercury, the Messenger and Scribe, (seemed to) turn Rx on Feb 13, 11:38 pm at 10Pis14 according to my Solar Fire software.

"11Pis": "Men seeking illumination"...DEDICATION:

pos: high accomplishment in an effective alignment with ultimate reality;

neg/shadow side: obvious hypocrisy.

On March 27, 10:56:16 pm EDT, Mercury will leave shadow territory after retracing his steps and press forward. Until then we may be hearing--or should I say, re-hearing--of things from mid-February...not the least of which concerns Dick Cheney's office and the Scooter Libby guilty verdict announced yesterday.

No time today to do Mercury's process justice (she said, justice!) but I do want to give the "25AQ" and "26Aq" degrees' Sabian Symbols for tonight's turnaround:

"25AQ": "A butterfly with the right wing more perfectly formed"...UNIQUENESS:

pos: a genius for turning deficiency into a real asset (my italics):

neg/shadow side: unhappy and rebellious conceit.

"26AQ": "A hydrometer"...EFFICIENCY:

pos: exceptional ability in manipulating the fundamental complexities of living;

neg: self-defeating worry over trifles.

And after studying charts for the Libby verdict, plus Cheney's natal chart, etc, it looks to me like yesterday's helpful Grand Trine--a closed circuit energy pattern if there ever was one--between Jupiter (Rs), Saturn (Ds), and Venus (Patrick Fitzgerald, seems to me...Venus' Scales of Justice)--may relate to Fitzgerald's immediate announcement that he expected to seek No Other Indictments in this leaky matter...which some might say is a reach-around if there ever was one. Squeezy!

Or was Fitzgerald cannily seeking to put certain big fish at their ease ("expected")?

Well, it is all about protecting Bush after all, isn't it?

so there ya go if you want art online and want it pretty quickly!

Plus, Jude's Art Storefront at Lulu is available, too.

Scooter Libby found guilty of all but one charge--perjury--lying to the FBI (and what politician hasn't done that?)--now facing up to 30 years in prison but federal guidelines recommend less.

His attorneys say they will ask for a new trial and will appeal if it's not granted.

You see here a chart for his to enlarge.

And while my heart goes out to Libby's family, I think perhaps families shouldn't let loved ones enter politics--or become toadies and sacrificial lambs for people like Dick Cheney.
