Rep. Alan Grayson on tax cuts for the rich (video)

Thank goodness for Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) who shares his ideas for what the rich can do with the extra $83,000 they'll each pocket if the Republicans get their way extending tax cuts for the rich.

Sometimes I wonder if the Americans who put the GOP back in control (to the extent that they are) in the November midterms 2010 won't live to regret it. And other times I know they will.

And in spite of the shortcomings of the Democratic Party (and they are many), my reaction now is similar to my reaction when Bush was 'elected' then re-elected: what in the world could you possibly have been thinking?

Bill Moyers: Welcome to the Plutocracy

Here's an excerpt from Bill Moyers new book, Welcome to the Plutocracy:

"On another site – “” – you can find out how the multibillionaire Koch brothers – also big oil polluters and Tea Party supporters – are recruiting “captains of industry” to fund the right-wing infrastructure of front groups, political campaigns, think tanks and media outlets. Now, hold on to your seats, because this can blow away the faint-hearted: Among the right-wing luminaries who showed up among Koch’s ‘secretive network of Republican donors’ were two Supreme Court Justices: Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. That’s right: 2 of the 5 votes to enable the final corporate takeover of government came from justices who were present as members of the plutocracy hatched their schemes for doing so." #

(My bold. Didn't want the SCOTUS names to be lost in the shuffle: Scalia and Thomas. jc)

Obama speaks as 20Cap13 rises 11.3.10

President Obama is scheduled to speak today at 1:00 pm edt from the White House concerning yesterday's midterm 'rebuke' of his presidency, policies, and legislation. In the US, the continued sorry job market (partially encouraged by the GOP-leaning Chamber of Commerce - this isn't rocket science, folks) has soured many of the people who voted Obama in 2008 and his and his wife's rhetorical efforts to turn out the base/s didn't go over as was wished.

That the Dem campaign flopped did go over well in quarters where crashing the Obama presidency was the primary goal, for the GOP looks toward another White House take-over in 2012. A rejuvenation of the neocon-warhawk-Vulcan crowd so that a majority of the American people haplessly choose their leadership in 2012 (again?) describes our unconscious national South Node in Aquarius at work, yet expecting different results for the same behavior is neurotic!) and if another neocon White House appears in 2012/13 it will be one of the greatest coups on a long list.

Yet I can hardly wait to see the financial rabbit the Republicans will helpfully pull out of their top hats now to repair the messes they engineered from 2000 - should make quite a show!

As President Obama speaks today at 1:00 pm edt: 20Cap13 ASC (20Can13 DESC = degrees of crisis) with 13Sco16 at Mc (the Rx Station degree of Venus on Oct 8, 2010, what Julie Demboski has called 'buyer's remorse' over Obama and I agree such a dynamic is at work here in the hinterlands. Inside the beltway, our Inaugural Moon 2009's void-of-course condition tells the tale of things not going as planned as the Moon (we-the-people) have disengaged from the Obama-as-Apollo script - and stayed home from the polling booth yesterday (yet I voted - did you?)

You remember that was a crisis-degreed Inaugural Moon 29Sco45...'30Sco' = "A Halloween Jester." Tricks abound while the water BHO seemingly walked on in 2008 now floods our homeland with foreclosures, fraud, toxins, poisons, and losses of all sorts.

Today the Sun 11Sco10 is highlighting an interesting asteroid, Osiris. Someone - or their influence - is scattered, and perhaps I might say, the nation will now be cut into shreds with redistricting, a tactic the GOP has honed to perfection for decades. But will the GOP-leaning Chamber of Commerce release the reins of corporate hiring in order to make yesterday's GOP victories look good for Republican chances in 2012?

Oppressively, Mr. Obama speaks with Moon 7Lib10 in 8th house of Shared Resources, Debt, and Transformation and Luna soon conjoins the Democratic Party's natal ruler, Saturn @ 11Lib47. This on one level describes the dire financial conditions of the people and the depressing family circumstances which the Obama administration has failed to completely address as of yet. Jobs, jobs, jobs!

Rising at 1:00 pm edt today at the White House is the Uranus/Mc midpoint so we see that: Uran/Mc = ASC (his speech): sudden adjustments to new circumstances.

Another chart factor I wish to mention as the president speaks is a difficult transiting midpoint: Mars/Saturn 8Sco12 which is sitting upon President Obama's natal Neptune: insufficient power to tackle resistance; waning powers and weakening efforts; danger through gas, water, poison, or an epidemic (using Ebertin today.)

President Obama's current political troubles issue from, imho, the 'New President Solar Eclipse' of January 26, 2009 @ 6AQ30 which manifested upon America's natal South Node, a Saturnian, separative point. This 'supports' the effect of the V.O.C Moon of January 20, 2009 as an impatient we-the-people look for quicker returns for our political investments, and our fears are played upon by political operatives and corporate titans with a neocon agenda hiding underneath their new 'jobs creation' ploy.

How the Rs will act from the extreme right while keeping us mum will bring quite a Political Theater series of performances. Will they disregard the majority opinion as before? Why not? John Boehner has already spoken of the "mandate" they imagine they won yesterday as if the GOP is in our good graces and can act as before, or worse.

Sending wet-behind-the-ears reps to serve on Capitol Hill, that bastion with its temples of Freemasonry, may be a mixed blessing and not as game-changing in ways many Americans will wish. With Mr. Obama not reconsidering his policy agenda - and blaming his political woes on his administration's off-the-mark communications - bodes unwell for a presidency that may now be tempted to move toward the right in ways most of us won't like either. Have his policies been too leftie or too rightie?, the talking heads have asked repeatedly. Is his natal Saturn Rx in late Capricorn (conjoining natal Jupiter 00AQ Rx) vying for Saturnian control of his policy leanings?

Yes, Restriction vs Expansion has certainly been a basic part of the to-stimulate-or-not-to-stimulate rescue auto-makers or let them fail....expanding (Jup) deficit (Sat), etc. Sadly for our economy, Mr. Obama's Saturnian restrictions over gone-wild Wall Street firms took second place to Jupiter's too-big-to-fail argument and his financial reform is near-toothless when it comes to fundamental changes.

Status quo Saturn in its own business-oriented sign of Cap has ruled his psyche, I believe, and high flying Jupiter in erudite AQ (conjoining US Inaugural Sun, for crimey's sake! And in Jan 2009, conjunct Inaugural Mercury Rx as well; higher marks go to Saturn within his dissociate conj of Jup/Sat) isn't driving. Repairing and tinkering with the established system from the inside has always been BHO's game otherwise he wouldn't be sitting in the Oval Office at all since the powers-that-be had to be convinced of his allegiance to the Bigger Picture.

(I see Rs and Ds as mere factions of the same organization of rulers who bow to the power elite which opposes the wishes and bank accounts of we-the-people; you may see them as you wish!)

One of my deepest frets concerning the Obama presidency has been re-triggered this week since election results reveal a potential for the global string-pullers who lurk behind the US government (and who have proven that they think nothing of playing each party against the other) to be the ones changing Washington's course from D to R. As a foil for the president to play off of, a Republican House can be helpful, however, if he'll take how-to directions from Bill Clinton.

Yet the midterm party-switch, visited upon the public through propaganda and other tricks for months now, resounds to the power elite's higher plan which makes US campaigns and election results mere drops of mass persuasion in the global bucket of mental and emotional control. They are determined to rule the roost which makes our subjugation an imperative.

After all, the Saturn (status quo; the past; accountability) and Uranus (progress; disruption; rebellion; independence) pair have been the signature of the election of Barack Obama - you remember that the two antithetical planets opposed one another on Election Day 2008.

But now, Saturn and Uranus are quindecile (165 degr) one another - an aspect of obsession-compulsion working on an unconscious level - which tells an interesting political tale that we may wish to consider given yesterday's midterm results.

In her ground-breaking book The Quindecile, Ricki Reeves notes that the Saturn/Uranus quindecile indicates 'a drive to break old and outdated concepts through the use or innovative ideas' (Tea Partisans?) and that these forces 'may disrupt governing systems (and) break rules through defiance of law and order'; the benefit comes through 'making societal changes for the betterment of humankind'.

November Midterms 2010 have been closely affected by the 'New President Eclipse' of Jan 26, 2009, as stated. Celeste Teal titled this Solar Eclipse, "Reform and Resistance" and though I was hoping that all would be improved for our and the world's betterment, it seems the resistance has only just begun.

Now I must hope we may 'serve and transcend' the past behaviors of our South Node (the Dragon's Tail) as represented by US natal SN (which was conjoined by the Jan 26, 2009 Solar Eclipse; eclipses are 'wild cards' which can act positively or negatively, or some combination; the GOP decided to hinder, defame, and obstruct the presidency of Barack Obama when they could've done good stuff on behalf of the American people.

Now it's two years on and obviously, the GOP didn't want Mr. Obama to receive any credit at all; our nation's problems have stood in the middle - our frustrations and losses have been of no moment to the GOP's Fail Obama Plan, yet now they supposedly are - puh!)

But yes, new ideas and innovations are required, it's true. That the corporate oligarchy of the US will allow anything fundamental to change concerning our nation's trajectory as an international police force (that ignores the basic needs of its people) is doubtful, no matter who's in our ill-thought-of Congress.

For more on such political topics, you may wish to subscribe to Julie Demboski's Eclipse e-zine where you will discover my latest article, American Empire: When Jupiter Bowed to the Sun in which I attempt to use an astrological lens to sleuth historically into when and how America took the disasterous course she now treads.

So what degree was rising when President Obama ended today's semi-crow-eating press conference at 1:57 pm edt?

ASC 7AQ01 conjoining US natal SN; at Midheaven (The Goal) was Mr. Obama's natal Mc which spotlights both his political career and our 2009 Inaugural Moon - which interestingly conjoins the Republican Party's natal Moon!

Democracy Now! interviews Ralph Nader 11.2.10

Listening now to Amy Goodman's interview with Ralph Nader, I was moved to check out Mr. Nader's website and found two articles he's just mentioned: one about corporate serfdom, the other with Ten Questions for the Tea Party.

When Corporations Are the Government is one of Nader's articles that I intend to read after I motor back from the city...and his latest book is entitled Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us (can we wake up old J. P. Morgan?)

For me his book may be too much of a "utopian fantasy" or dream though because whenever I read the word 'utopia' I get the political creeps of the Sir Francis Bacon-Adam Weishaupt kind.

Here are a few natal chart details for crusader Ralph Nader written around the time he announced his 2008 presidential bid. Btw, he's now 75 years old and still crusading.

Midterm 2010 Voting in Kansas is Nov 2 not Nov 3!

Here is the first obvious case of voter fraud I've found so far today where robocalls have been telling Kansas citizens to show up with proof of home ownership on Wednesday November 3!

Yet I have faith that all the good citizens of Kansas have been paying closer attention to our election process than to fall for a Republican trick of that illegal nature.

Sounds like someone running in Kansas needs all the help they can get, doesn't it?

And so I return to something I've been known to post here before - it's a Note to Mr. Rove and all political handmaidens of his ilk: cheating isn't winning. It's stealing.

October Surprise a false flag? Nov midterms 2010

With corporate media's panties in a bunch over what may be only a false flag op staged by a US government frightened that establishment candidates may be kicked out of Washington on November 2, we may wish to consider an alternate news source concerning the bombs-that-weren't-then-were bombs on planes heading to America.

And of course, tightening airport security always follows these episodes no matter how fluffy they turn out to be. Is the message: don't kick out the bums who 'foil' terrorist plots (even if they're the bums who set them up to keep us fearful and subdued)?

This Packages From Yemen airplane/bomb story certainly took over the news from the midterm elections, didn't it? Now if a 'new' bin Laden tape appears, our Halloween bag of soft-centered, nutty political tricksters will be overflowing!

Koch memo leak: 'change balance of power' parrots 1.4.11 Solar Eclipse

Sometimes a news event or phrase in the news perfectly parrots an astrological indicator such as this:

(KurtNimmo) – One faction of globalist tools outing another faction of globalist tools. That’s how we play politics in America today.

Think Progress — which should be called Think Soros because it is funded by George Soros — has released a private correspondence sent out by Charles Koch of Koch Industries. The memo has the itinerary of a *private meeting to be held at an exclusive hotel in Aspen attached.

Soros globalists leak neocon RINO document.

In the memo, Koch says his group of neocons and RINOs plan to “change the balance of power in Congress this November.” In other words, give power back to a Republican-dominated set of globalists and statists who hope to come out the winners in the perpetual game of musical chairs as the corrupt Mafioso government continues its slow motion Titanic routine to the bottom.

Koch plans to “activate citizens,” that is to say convince them to vote for Republicans and trademark Tea Party operatives who buy into the neocon philosophy.

The hand of the neocons weighs heavily on this invitation only, media excluded event. Charles Krauthammer will dispense his wisdom — something you can get for nothing on Fox News any day of the week — and so will stand-up comic Glenn Beck and broker-dealer Peter Schiff.

Read more here. #

And here's a direct link to the PDF of the invitation to the Koch meeting of neocons plotting their take-over (and plotting revenge, no doubt, against their Dem globalist opponents - yet another battle of ideologues which will not result in improvements for the American people, imho. Yet sometimes you just want to be wrong.)


Astrology Describes 'The Balance of Power'

What perked up my antennae in the above memo is its parroting of Celeste Teal's title for the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse at the crisis or critical degree of 13Cap38: "The Balance of Power" which, as previously noted, opposes US natal Sun in Cancer (the leader or leadership.)

Now you see my emphasis added above to the Koch-neocon group's goal to "change the balance of power in Congress this November" and there are many Americans who may consider this to be a fabulous idea - after all, we've voted to do it before when the ruling party acts too big for its britches or is inadequate, or more corrupt than usual. (I shall remind you that GOP politicians were once deemed 'more corrupt than usual' by the American people not so very long ago. Wonder how Capitol Hill's purported 'ethics seminars' worked out? Ah, for the days of Jack Abramoff, 'The Godfather' Tom DeLay, Newt Gingrich, and the boys. Puh! The Family indeed...bwo Sicily. Interestingly, asteroid Cupido in Astrology signifies The Family, The Syndicate, and/or Corporations.)

According to Teal's book Eclipses, the critical degree of the January 4, 2011 Eclipse indicates a potential for a 'central event having wide-ranging impact' - could this be the November 2010 midterms and a Republican take-over of the House? (Get ready for SS cuts and/or privatization if you, dear voter, fall for GOP and Tea Party rhetoric. Don't know about you, but I paid 100% of those 'benefits' into the SS system for over 30 years and I'd like them all back please.)

Earning power, expenditures, trade, and labor restrictions are also highlighted by the January 2011 eclipse.

The January 4th eclipse also shows a 'turbulent spirit against those in high places' thanks in part to its nearness to Fixed Star, Manubrium (flaring heat.) Opposition to America's natal Sun gives President Obama 'potentially powerful opposition to overcome' which portends congressional battles, gridlocks, filibusters, and attempts at repealing Dem legislation. Obstacles to further legislation is on the GOP agenda as well, so if an unusually bilious amount of contentiousness on Capitol Hill is what you want - rather than dealing with the American public's immediate and dire concerns - vote GOP on November 2, 2010. That will show Mr. Obama we don't know how to vote for our own best interests! Won't he be sorry! (Here's where a font for sarcasm would come in handy.)

Of course, my more basic opinion is that the plutocratic and elite ruling class (Pluto/Chiron, Sun/Pluto, Jupiter/Pluto, etc) of royals and Luciferians has been waging class warfare upon we-the-people for decades with the only real difference being which power players call the shots in their mad drive to be the crowing roosters at the top as they shill for a One World Government (NWO.)

Economics Professor Richard Wolff says US incomes haven't risen since the 1970s! Click for his website and podcasts on topics such as the current workers' strikes in France - and why he thinks US workers don't.

As for neocon 'statists', 'Statism' is also under Pluto/Chiron's purview as are other -isms such as Socialism, Communism, Marxism, corporatism, fascism, totalitarianism, etc. Whatever disenfranchises and oppresses, there's overlord Pluto/Chiron. The US natal Pluto/Chiron in Pisces conjoins our nation's natal Ceres (security and food issues and thus they oppress us with fear-as-tactic (loss of security), and with health-weakening by food additives, mercury poisoning, chemicals in plastics, and such. Monsanto's hold over seeds is a case in point, too. Famines or the threat of them make great tools to get your way!)

Now as you know, 'absolute power corrupts absolutely' and that certainly must include our raunchy sell-out-America band of Rs and Ds - and anyone else who thinks to take charge of this huge enterprise of a cash cow and international police force that we sentimentally like to call the United States of America...for at least a little while longer.


*If I read it correctly in the PDF of the Koch memo (dated Sept 24, 2010), I believe the secret meeting in Aspen has already taken place and the next meeting of neocon plotters occurs Jan 30 - 31, 2011 in Palm Springs, CA at lovely
Rancho Mirage
- after the GOP's House and/or Senate take-over has been accomplished. So will the goose-steppers of Karl Rove's ilk be victorious on Nov 2? If the puppet-masters behind the scenes say so. Chilling. jc
