How The GOP Lost Its Mind | The Mehdi Hasan Show - MSNBC

Finding a 'Share to Blogger' option with the following, I'm taking a chance curating a Mehdi Hasan segment which will probably be mysteriously disappeared in short order from SO'W. So here's a link to the segment should you need it.

Because I suspect you've noticed that if Herr Trump does manage to run again in 2024, a possible running mate whose name is now being floated is opportunist Marjorie Taylor Greene. And wouldn't that be a bizarre political ticket of banana republic porportions?

Catch Nicole Sandler's interview w/ Lawrence O'Donnell

March 13, 2020: Just a quick heads-up concerning a recent interview conducted by radio broadcaster Nicole Sandler and Lawrence O'Donnell, host of MSNBC's The Last Word. Their conversation actually began on Twitter a couple of weeks ago and resulted in Nicole issuing an invitation to discuss the topic of Socialism and Lawrence's O'Donnell's on-air admission that he is a socialist. Not once but several times through the years he has publicly said this and if you find such topics of interest, check out their conversation which Nicole re-aired today during her Friday guest stint as host of The BradCast.

Nicole says she has all but stopped watching MSNBC due to the large number of disaffected Republicans appearing on the network with their anti-Trump grumps and you may wish to hear Mr. O'Donnell's response.

Plus, here is a segment of The Last Word from March 12, 2020 with Rep. Adam Schiff in a discussion of the CoronaVirus outbreak in the US and the administration's response to it.

Ari Melber: March 31 1980 Sun Aries-Moon Libra

A few bio details concerning MSNBC's Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber are available for the curious. Mr Melber has a 39th birthday upcoming - born March 31, 1980 in Seattle, Washington. Below you see a speculative natal horoscope for Ari Melber as timed by that day's Full Moon which perfected @11Lib03 at 7:13:52 am PST in Seattle; I'm not going to make a big deal about the chart but here it is in case anyone ever wants it--the Full Moon version, that is. Because to me, his day of birth is cosmically imprinted with the rays of a Full Moon @11Lib03, no matter his accurate hour and minute of birth.

Any other speculation on Ari's birth time is up to you so have at it!

As you see penned on the chart (messily as usual!), his planet of communication and reporting (on TV, no less--he's quite photogenic), Mercury @13Pis22 sextiles Chiron and forms the base of a YOD pattern that points toward the Libran Moon (the public; publicity) and this, I assert, describes Ari Melber's special task in life. What do you think? See chart for sextile details provided by Barbara Hand Clow (as notated above the natal chart).

And since the page linked above states that Mr. Melber married in 2014, divorced in 2017, I'll gingerly mention that his chart displays a telling Venus-Uranus opposition which tends a native toward problematic relationships that, in order to last, must be supported by stability from other factors in the chart and psyche for best results. A strong, sober Saturn is always helpful - his Rx in critical, discerning Mercury-ruled Virgo, and in wide opposition with thinking Mercury in creative Pisces. Yet with any contact between lovely Venus and quirky Uranus, relationships can be and usually are, exciting while they last!

Then what about his Sun Aries-Moon Libra personality blend of conscious and unconscious energies?

Some personality traits can be seen on his MSNBC show The Beat, Ari's love of rap music is well known, and music references tend to turn up on his show in segments and in his commentary. His is a Fire-Air blend, full of exciting ideas that he communicates easily and with zeal. Idealism, optimism, and a charming hospitality may be noticed on screen (and one presumes in person) along with a vivacious streak of chivalry (hero complex?), plus, a large dose of ingeniousness is apparent. Dependence vs independence in relationships (Aries-Libra) proves an important theme in life, though in youth Ari may have been a bit of a flirt. And actually, a Libran Moon person can become quite detached and this coolness tends to attract emotional outbursts from others. Others like the ladies! Still, as an adult Mr. Melber naturally prefers to be in a 'good' relationship (Sun Sign Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey).

The Harveys' "Image for Integration" seems appropriate for Ari Melber's Sun-Moon blend and perhaps you'll agree:

"A conductor leads an orchestra with passionate conviction and a vibrant pulsating organism of musical perfection is created to the ecstatic uplifting of the audience." Yes, pulsating like The Beat!

Well, perhaps two famous quotes from a fellow also born under the Sun Aries-Moon Libra combo can add a certain something to our tale:

"The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves." And, "The art of pleasing consists in being pleased." - essayest William Hazlitt.

Great advice for us all!

Chart Note: the earliest (12:00 am pst) position of the Sun on March 31, 1980 in Seattle, WA: 10Ari45, earliest Moon position = 7Lib29); the latest (11:59 pm pst) Sun and Moon positions are: 11Ari44 and 19Lib21 conjunct Pluto Rx @20lib39 which, in self-aware folk, can give great psychological insight into the psyches of others and an endless well of creativity, yet may also hint at a mother who smothered. Perhaps all three!

Special Counsel Mueller and asteroid Mueller!

If you're like me, you have a life and so you've been making meager attempts to keep up with the news on the Mueller investigation while longing to appreciate the happy parade of attorneys hired by Donald Trump in an effort to keep him in the Oval Office. Perhaps you've caught up with the five-minute April 20, 2018 MSNBC segment "Very Unlikely Rudy Guiliani Will End Robert Mueller Investigation", a video that is something of a hoot if you haven't heard it. Basically, New Yorkers Rudy and Donnie are too much alike!

1944 Meets 2017

The reason I'm thinking (again) of the Mueller investigation is that as I looked through a list of personal name asteroids I noticed asteroid Mueller (number 4031) so I plugged in Robert Mueller's birth date (August 7, 1944) at and discovered Mueller @2Leo32. Then I checked the horoscope of the day Mr. Mueller was appointed Special Counsel in the Russia-Trump Probe (May 17, 2017) and there was asteroid Atlantis @2Leo01--key phrases: where we feel doomed, divine retribution -- and also the abuse of power!

So given that Astrology works in an AC-DC fashion (energies flow in both directions or alternate) some will say that the abuse of power is on Special Counsel Mueller's side. But for those who believe Robert Mueller's ethics trump those of con man/reality 'star' Donald Trump, you know the feeling of doom must be all on the side of the kingpin-in-chief.

1776 Meets 1946

In addition, you know I had to check for Trump's asteroid Mueller on his date of birth (June 14, 1946) and it clocks in @13Ari05--closely opposing America's natal Saturn exalted in Libra (14:48) and planet of government, law, business--and The Establishment.

Any thoughts on this cosmic synchronicity of asteroids and the ethics involved?

The Highest-Resolution Thermal Images of Jupiter Yet - MSNBC

Jupiter in scientifically minded Virgo is in the spotlight on July 4, 2016! Astrologically speaking, this could have something to do with Jupiter and the North Node (of the Moon) traveling together in Virgo this year with the North Node relating to encounters, publicity, and public contact and Jupiter the planet being encountered by spacecraft Juno!

Feb 4 and 6, 2016: R and D Candidates Debate as Saturn and Uranus Attend

February 4th and 6th: Democratic and Republican Candidates Engage Under Aquarius-Capricorn Vibes for it's a Sun Aquarius-Moon Capricorn blend of energies both nights with each sign ruled by Saturn, planet of government, the Establishment, the system, authority, accountability, responsibility, karma, and the status quo. And of course in modern astrology, Aquarius brings progressive Uranus to the debates--but the debates are weighted on the Saturnian side.

First, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders debate tonight February 4, 2016 (MSNBC 9:00 pm ET; Moon 00Cap) then Republican candidates will debate (aka, hurl insults at each other) this Saturday February 6, 2016 beginning at 8:00 pm ET (Moon 27Cap).

Since both debates come under the influence of the Spartan, steadfast, aloof blend of Sun AQ-Moon Capricorn, an *Image for Integration seems appropriate--simply apply to any of the 2016 presidential candidates as you wish!

Sun AQ-Moon Cap: "A revolutionary is elected president."

#OpFlint - an Anonymous video about the Flint Michigan water crisis

When Michigan Governor Rick Snyder appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe this morning he again attempted to deflect blame for the crisis by spreading it around which seemed to be his primary aim but I for one was not persuaded by his weasely performance. The EPA will investigate the catastrophe in Flint but if the feds whitewash the situation as far as culpability, it will be as chaff in the wind. Any other bankrupt city or town in America is subject to such money-based decisions by "emergency managers" that can kill and maim their citizens.

Here is a video for your consideration:

Ed Schultz Criticized Obama then Fired from MSNBC - video

Well, I, for one, always appreciated The Ed Show on MSNBC, a network said to be leaning toward the right with its programming. If that happens, the Rockerfellerites at MSNBC will lose at least one regular viewer--moi because their programming has given social liberals and non-Ayn-Randers a semblance of being heard even if it's only an elaborate ruse so if that illusion ends so will my viewership.

Of course, behemoth Comcast was behind the decision.

Comcast Orders MSNBC To Remove Anti-TPP Hosts - video

The Ed Schultz show on MSNBC has been targeted for cancellation by behemoth Comcast, a corporation that helped write the draconian, corporate-based, anti-democratic TPP trade "deal". My hope is that Mr. Schultz will continue broadcasting on radio if not on another TV channel because I greatly appreciate his work on behalf of the Common Good:

Repeal #CitizensUnited #Corporatism #TPP #MSNBC #NBC #EdSchultz

See Who Owns Comcast? or in this case, what broadcast entity does Comcast own since 2011 so that bossing around MSNBC is possible?

As the power elite well know, Corporatism + Statism = Fascism.

Horoscope: Summer Solstice 2013 in Political Astrology

Summer Solstice June 21, 2013: Mars-Pluto and the Jackass

by Jude Cowell

Please click horoscope image to enlarge:

Summer Solstice 2013: Sun to World Point 00Can00:00 @1:04 am edt Washington DC; Hour of evaluating Venus (@22Can06 conjunct Mercury 22:01 in 5th house); chart-ruler Jupiter with sub-ruler Neptune, the speculator pair, are actors within a Water Grand Trine (6A09--see bottom left of chart); secretive Neptune @5Pis19 in its own unconscious 12th house of Politics, Karma, and Large Institutions such as prisons (closing of Gitmo?) and hospitals (vets, Obamacare?) precisely conjoins President Obama's natal 1st house Chiron Rx @5Pis19. Their precise conjunction has a fated reap-what's-sown quality and denotes strong psychic energies being unconsciously expressed by the president concerning 12th house matters.

Compassion, aid, and/or propaganda (the media; the masses; surveillance) may also be indicated by this placement of Neptune.

Now as you know, Water Grand Trines have a protective imperative and all such planetary patterns indicate closed circuits of energy. Guarding against stagnation and inertia is problematic with all Grand Trines and especially so when more than one appears as here: there are two if we count the ASC with Moon, Mercury-Venus, and Sun-Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune.) The quality of Water seeks peace, tranquility, and safety and many of us will tend to retreat into our private worlds if and when we can. Naturally domestic issues will be high on our lists of concerns as well.

Additionally, the two Grand Trines, made more complex by Jupiter still in Airy Gemini while the Sun has entered Watery Cancer, signifies America's current debilitating conditions and we have only to glance toward Capitol Hill ideologues and bigots to remember that this is what we're experiencing across the nation due to what I termed here in 2012 as "Jackassian Politics." I was surprised last evening to hear MSNBC's Chris Hayes on his program All In using the description of jackassery behavior for certain Republican-Tea Partiers. But we can't be the only ones who've noticed!

Mr. Hayes on Republicans Behaving Badly as they attempt to break the Senate:

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Now if you listen to the full broadcast of All In, Chris also discusses the Jackassery Politics as practiced by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel who is closing 50 schools in the city while using taxpayer millions to build--wait for it--a sports stadium. Jackassery abounds everywhere we look!

Now back to Summer Solstice 2013:

Rising is 27Pis31 along with two midpoints: 1. Uranus-NN denoting radical political groups and reformers; 2. the forceful Mars-Pluto midpoint which gives dangerous and ruthless tones to the chart and to the hot summer season. Also, Mars-Pluto opposes US progressed Neptune which adds potentials for disasters caused by water, oil, or gas, causing secret harm to others, and use of cunning and deceit--you know: Washington and state politicians behaving badly.

Now that 8th house Moon (We the People) @27Sco52 nears the Inaugural 2009 Moon (29Sco45) and conjoins here President Obama's natal MC (Aspirations; The Goal) which hopefully indicates his efforts to bring relief and improved conditions (such as infrastructure investments which would solve more than one problem) yet we find Jupiter @28Gem53 conjunct IC (Foundation of the Matter) and '28Gem' is a degree of BANKRUPTCY in Sabian Symbols. Can our economy hang on until America's next Jupiter Return (5Can56) on July 22, 2013? Will nation-building investments or roads and bridges finally arrive in the nick of time to create jobs and increase our safety?

Perhaps! For we know that debt, credit, shared resources, and Big Business are on top of our national agenda this summer with the Solstice North Node of Future Direction posited in Scorpio and in Watery Scorpio's natural 8th house--plus, Scorpio's Mars-Pluto influences rule the Solstice ASC in Washington, as noted above. Building bridges would be a great use of this forceful energy. More war and drone strikes? Not so much.

Well, there are many more chart factors to consider but I don't want to ruin your fun (check out that Scorpionic Saturn Rx just barely in 7th house and the critical 20Cap degree on 11th cusp!) so I'll close by detailing the midpoint pictures formed in T-Squares between Sun, Jupiter, MC, and the ASC in the Summer Solstice 2013 horoscope:

Sun-MC = ASC: personal relations or associations (Ebertin); needing to be forthright and honest about how your accomplishments and contributions can help others (Munkasey.)

Jupiter-MC = ASC: pleasant contacts that support one's personal success (Ebertin); a need to absorb life's lessons; needing to understand the motives and intentions of others; reminders that one must work with others (Munkasey.)

Yes, that last indicator is aimed toward all our anti-government jackassian politicians who know who they are.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell says Bohemian Grove is "nothing" (video)

Speaking of Bohemian Grove and Newt Gingrich's attendance there (as in my last post w video), here is MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell being interviewed on the secretive topic. Is it curious that Mr. O'Donnell isn't at all concerned about satanists embedded in governmental power structures? Does egomania explain everything?

(fyi: s-words and f-words are used quite plentifully in this video.)

The Daily Show: Will MSNBC become Fox News? video link

The Daily Show is asking the pertinent question: will MSNBC be the network to take over the role of Fox News and do the honors for the Obama administration?

Here's a video link to Jon Stewart's report on this pressing issue.
