Steamed over Chelsea's $11,000 wedding cake?

If you're steamed over Chelsea Clinton Mezvinsky's extravagant, multi-million-dollar wedding last Saturday, your blood pressure won't likely simmer down from reading an article on the topic by Paul Craig Roberts, I assure you.

Oprah was in attendance and she could have bankrolled the Secret Service protection which American taxpayers paid for to keep the wedding guests safe and snug (from us, one supposes.) Therefore, we taxpayers should each have a slice of Chelsea's wedding cake tucked in our freezers, at the least!

Plus, Mr. Roberts asks some interesting questions in his article concerning the exorbitant incomes of Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, and others. And notice that George Bush's compadre in war, Tony Blair, was invited to the uppercrust wedding at the Astor mansion.

This hints at what I fuss about here all the time: could it be that they're all in this together against we-the-people (and all other people)? And the sight of Bill and Poppy Bush traveling around collecting millions in disaster relief donations from the likes of you and me?

Origins of Public Relations and Consumerism: video link

Zeeks! Propaganda Galore! Our Brains on Propaganda! Pluto-Chiron's consumerism yet another -ism!

This four part BBC series captured on video, The Century of the Self, concerns the rise of consumerism, the business and political uses of it, and reveals its guru, Edward Bernays, and his role in inventing public relations in the 1920s based on his Uncle Sigmund Freud's work on the Unconscious.

Turns out...funny America, the very foundations of democracy were cracking fissures while Dr. Freud was spouting on and on about the irrational, dangerous desires and fears lurking just underneath Average Joe's calm surface - a threat which totally crumbles the concept of democracy as run by rational people making well-considered choices.

Freud's unleashed monsters had been seen expressed in street riots and in the barbarism of Nazi Germany, and they were definitely not invited to tea in a status quo society of button-down types and their quiet little wives making apple pies and brewing Maxwell House at every opportunity.

Now if you haven't time to view all four parts of this BBC-produced series, my recommendation is to watch Part Four at the very least.

The series is a fascinating view of public relations and the manipulation it is based on and has old film footage interspersed - including some cheesecake of Dr. Freud himself (just kidding about the cheesecake.)

Also revealed is the tight team effort of Bill Clinton and Tony Blair, whose similar ruling styles were not as coincidental as they may have appeared at the time. Yet one thing I must disagree with the BBC on - I assert that Clinton and Blair knew very well that the manipulative Freudian techniques had been developed by people in order to control the masses, not to "liberate" them. I mean, puh! give me a break on that one.

So given my fascination with propaganda, its methods and supposed justifications, it seemed a good idea to make this video report available here in case someone else has a similar fascination...and so I can find it again quite handily.

You know, I published the first-ever US Inauguration chart with hour verified by historical record (George Washington's Inauguration, of course), and I remember writing on the chart image that changing we-the-people's mentality was a goal because of its 10th house Chiron in (mental) Gemini...if you wish to view the chart and read my notes, try American Presidency Apr 30, 1789 which, being the first, is the archetype of all US presidencies following.

Now I must mosey because my favorite new show comes on at 9 pm...Tim Roth in Lie to Me.

I love how they divilge what various gestures mean, including politicians' rhetoric tricks, flourishes, and avoidances which the show drops in by way of tapes of modern day political thespians - at podium or elswhere - because Lie to Me is all about reading faces and gestures, and with great acting, too.

Just my style - steamy Lie to Me Tea served with crusty Propaganda Biscuits nestled on one of the dessert plates Madison Avenue told me I had to have to make my life complete.

So as we-the-dupes know, completing-the-set in this manner simply never works. But it will send you a snowballing credit card balance from h*ll - as enabled by the politicial thespians of Capitol Hill.

A man unmasked?

Breaking News and Commentary from Citizens For Legitimate Government Feb 18,2008

'Dodgy dossier' was 'wrong', its author says Feb 17, 2008:

The government official who wrote the first draft of the "dodgy dossier" that helped propel Britain into war in Iraq today admits, "We were wrong." John Williams, a former Foreign Office aide, said last night that publication of his document would expose how members of Tony Blair's team were locked in a mindset that made military action inevitable.#

Perhaps this (oily) charade revealed is part of the influence of our current Unmasking Eclipse of Feb 6 when true motives are revealed...with more to come, no doubt.

Then there's the recent Saturn-South Node transit which may be underpinning Musharraf's separation from authority--and Castro's? The Saturn-SN conjunction perfected in October 2007 and now SN has moved into Aquarius, a sign associated with the collective.

The language of Mundane Astrology is a fascinating and helpful way of translating world events, isn't it?

'Al-Qa'eda death threat' to Gordon Brown:

Intelligence services are investigating a threat on an 'Islamist' website to kill Gordon Brown, adding credence to warnings by the US security chief about the rising danger from home-grown European terrorists. [LOL.] Mr Chertoff said European visitors to the US face tougher security checks.

Security experts fear the posting in Arabic on, referring to "the creation of the al-Qa'eda organisation in Britain", may be genuine. ['Al-Qa'eda' uses Domains by Proxy.

Scepticism greets "Al Qaeda in Britain" founding 16 Jan 2008:

An Internet posting that proclaimed the creation of an 'al Qaeda' branch in Britain is viewed by intelligence officials as typical militant "background noise", a security source said on Wednesday. An unidentified individual posted the claim in Arabic on a password-protected militant forum on January 2, saying the new "al Qaeda in Britain" would carry out major attacks including on political leaders, naming Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his predecessor Tony Blair.#

Guess I'm one of the sceptical but perhaps pardners Brown and Blair should stay outta Scottsdale, just in case...

Litvinenko in news again

London seems to have setteled on Andrei Lugovoi as being Litvinenko's heinous poisoner but Russia says Lugovoi is not available for extradition as Ex-KGB Agent Accused in Litvinenko's Death.

Kovtun and Scaramella are not mentioned in the current accusation--nor is the mystery man who also attended the Nov 1 2006 meeting at the Millenium Hotel where the poison was delivered.

You know, the star Alphard in the constellation Hydra is associated with poisons and according to astrologer Bernadette Brady, Alphard is active in the charts of three European leaders who have left or are about to leave office by stepping down or by death: Blair, Chiraq, and Yeltsin.

Alphard is also connected to Bill Clinton's natal chart, btw. Perhaps I will post more on Alphard later.

Here are my previous posts on Litvinenko's poisoning and the subsequent, seemingly impotent investigation beginning with Nov 24, 2006:

Putin and the poisoned spy;

excerpt from Litvinenko's statement;

Neptune's rare and exotic mist;

testing Scaramella;

from Russia with love?;

radioactive red herrings?;

Alexander Litvinenko details with link to natal chart;

update 12.3.06;


Kovtun in Hamburg

update 12.15.06;

Scaramella arrested in Italy;

supposed poisoner caught on video (the so-called mystery man.)

The UK and Russia are supposedly on a different page concerning Andrei Lugovoi's extradition for this crime. Supposedly.

Blair's big buh-bye in May?

News Update from Citizens for Legitimate Government 22 April 2007: Breaking News

Blair Set to Quit On May 9 22 Apr 2007: Tony Blair will leave Downing Street before a decision is taken on charges in the cash for honours affair. The Prime Minister was yesterday said to be preparing to stand down on May 9. That will trigger a seven-week leadership election process in the Labour Party and a new PM - probably Gordon Brown - will move into 10 Downing Street at the end of June.#

Perhaps Blair should sneak out the back door...?

Blair sinking in sleaze

Here you see today's transits for noon, London, to Tony Blair's natal chart.

As you know, Mr. Blair is under tremendous pressure of late--as is his twin George Bush--and we see here recent transits to Mr Blair's 12th house planets.

Read The Scotsman's take on Blair's troubles (which are often self-created) Blair sinking amid sleaze allegations for details.

Now 12th house-ers are usually good at secretive occupations dealing with large organizations such as--you guessed it--politics, and Blair's having Venus (relationships; values; money), Mercury (thinking; communications), Sun (ego; true life purpose), Jupiter (one of two Social planets relating to the expansion principle, to optimism and confidence, and negatively to hypocrisy and to over-confidence--a manifestation often seen in charts of politicians along with 12th house back-door-deals for pocket-lining); Mars (energy; action; intitiative) lined up in 12th house (of Self-Undoing) is great for strengthening purposes until a bunch of transiting planets come along to knock them over like bowling pins.

If we see these planets as ACTORS opposing Mr. Blair we may see that for some time--certainly since 2005 when Jupiter opposed natal Venus--he has been under great stress. Most of these recent oppositional transits involve such things as:

plans, ideas, opposed or dismissed out-of-hand; unfavorable time for group endeavors, meetings (Mars oppo Mercury: Oct 17/18, 06);

unfavorable for ego-related situations; bad time for displaying arrogance or aggression or to resist the authority of others; Half-Birthday--time for reassessing one's progress or its lack (Sun oppo Sun, on or about Nov 8);

discontent with personal achievement (or wealth!); a difficult time to find anyone who is the least bit impressed with you;; overblown efforts and discouraging comparisons (Jupiter oppo Jupiter, 3rd week Nov);

others actions/efforts are diametrically opposed to your own; the hitting head against the proverbial brick wall transit; aggression succeeds even less with equally determined force against you by others (Mars oppo Mars, on or about Dec 11.)

These are just some of the effects of the last several weeks to Mr.Blair's natal chart in the opposition realm...and there's the ongoing tr Saturn to natal Pluto, the power planet.

Now many people--self included--are of the Pluto-in-Leo generation and so we all have had, are having, or will have this important transit to our natal Plutos.
But it is made more important for those who are directly connected with societal power structures...such as politicians like Blair and Bush.

So what to expect with the Saturn to Pluto transit?

Saturn...control; restriction, denial, loss, and accountability stomping on Pluto's could even say the power-behind-the-throne and perhaps secret activities:

loss of control in situations which are too large to handle efficiently or readily;
may lack resources to be the one in charge; struggle to understand or control current motivations, behavior, and actions that developed as a result of the past.

Saturn brings the past to catch up with us...and you'll read about it for Mr.Blair and his bribes to the Saudi Arabia royal family to secure their order for 72 Eurofighter Typhoon jets, and his cash-for-honors scandal--and his stopping of the SERIOUS FRAUD OFFICE's inquiry into the arms deal--in the above-linked article.

Now...where can America get one of those Serious Fraud Offices? What a hoot of a name! Propaganda rules, m'peops!
