Religious Right Is Keeping Ted Cruz’s Campaign Alive - video

Yes, the number of Americans who score themselves as 'religious' has fallen to an all-time low which must make international bankers and corporatists such as the Houses of Rothschild and Rockefeller and other World War III promoters such as Adam Weishaupt of Bavarian Illuminati fame (May 1, 1776), Confederate General Albert Pike (still with his statue standing at the foot of Capitol Hill!), Mazzini (colleague of Pike and creator of the organized Mafia), and modern Zionists (the ruling hierarchy, not the Jewish people) thrilled that their 'Great' Plan is proceeding so well and full implementation of a satanic 'new world order' is on the verge of fruition--or so they arrogantly assume.

Yet as Max Igan reminds us, The Price of Apathy Is to Be Ruled by Evil Men (audio-video) so apathy is our main problem. And if we're smart we'll "build unity in our communities"!

My question for today is: Do present conditions in the world remind you of the season finale of Mr. Robot last evening? Me, too!

Closely related: Who Is Albert Pike? (includes Astrology and an informative video); Ted Cruz Announces But Mercury Goes Nowhere; and the horoscope of the 'Illuminati Eclipse' of Nov 3, 2013, the year of Ted Cruz's hammy, rotten-egg Government Shutdown, a theatrical yet costly stunt that Republicans seem determined to engineer again before the end of 2015--based on a two-year Mars cycle of activism and ideological passion apparently. September 2015 is a crucial month, as you know, with two eclipses, solar and lunar.

And all this makes me wonder: Can Astrology Describe Ted Cruz?.

Sen. Sanders' consistency - Rachel Maddow's 'Tale of the Tape' (her Sun Aries-Moon Pisces!)

Oh great! I was hoping a clip from MSNB's Rachel Maddow Show last evening would be available for sharing on Stars Over Washington! Last evening (August 13, 2015) she showed Democrats as they were before their 2016 presidential campaigns, or you could say, what lead up to their 2016 bids. Tonight Republican candidates will be featured in the segment, Tale of the Tape:

A Brief Astro-Peek at Rachel Maddow, My Personal 'Splainer-in-Chief for Complex Topics

News reporter Rachel Maddow was born on April 1, 1973 at 12:23 pm PST in Hayward, California (RR: AA, BC/BR in hand, collector: Taglilatelo.) This gives her a Sun Aries-Moon Pisces personality blend and a Moon-ruled Ascendant in late Cancer (she loves to fish and has a 4-degree orb between natal Moon @20Pis29 and Mercury (16Pis21). A Pisces Moon gives empathy and compassion for others, traits that are also seen in a dynamic T-Square pattern involving her Saturn-Neptune (weak, ill, poor people) opposition pointing to communicating Mercury, planet of journalists, reporters, speakers, and thought processes.

Natal Sun in Mars-ruled Aries, sign of 'the pioneer' along with her soft Pisces Moon is a Fire-Water live wire combo of one who lives at a fast pace and with a hint of moralism attached. This blend indicates that Rachel Maddow is a Utopian idealist and visionary (Harveys, see below) whom her Rockefeller colleagues and bosses use to good advantage (to make the public feel that someone cares about the Common Good?) A Rhodes Scholar, Ms. Maddow's Mercury in murky Pisces doesn't seem to have interfered much with her ability for clarity of thought and facility with language but supplied a broad vista for her talents--the 'big picture', as they say, with her reporting putting things into historical context really well.

The Sun Aries-Moon Pisces blend denotes one who can be a restless worrier, single-minded yet dreamy, a kind-hearted maverick, ambitious in career, and a romantic. Possessing an off-beat style, Rachel can be moody yet can act as 'a powerful force for good in the world'. Being intellectually and emotionally true to herself is of utmost importance.

Well, this is a very brief astro-portrait of a complex lady! For a fuller picture, check out her bio and natal horoscope here and catch her Tale of the Tape show tonight if you can!

August 6, 2015: Political Astrology on Global Radio!

A lot is happening Thursday August 6, 2015!

By now you know that tonight is the first Republican primary debate/s with the first ('happy hour') group onstage at 5:00 pm edt and the main line-up on air (FOX channel or MSNBC) to begin at 9:00 pm edt including Donald Trump. It will be a very long evening of Politics and campaign promises, folks.

Update August 7, 2015: last night's two Republican debates resulted in rather predictable fashion with the lion-esque Donald Trump giving back as good as he got, Governor John Kasich acquitting himself well even on the topic of Medicaid, and Carly Fiorina rising above the rest as astrological factors suggested in a previous post. The lowest notes in the symphony were struck by Ben Carson and Rand Paul; the role of youngster of the evening was played by Senator Mario Rubio.

Then at 10:00 pm edt, yours truly is scheduled to be interviewed by Rob McConnell on The 'X' Zone Radio Show concerning Political Astrology. This is a global broadcast originating in Ontario Canada and will be aired Live from 10--11:00 pm edt (7:00 pm pdt). Hope you'll tune in this evening or check it out via podcasts or on your TuneIn or iHeart radio apps and such.

Update August 7, 2015: my on-radio interview last evening with host Rob McConnell was fun! Rob has a great interviewing style and makes it seem like a conversation between two people that just happens to have an invisible audience listening in. Depending on Rob's busy schedule, perhaps we'll finish our conversation about Politics and Astrology at a later date!

Next at 11:00 pm edt is Jon Stewart hosting his last episode of The Daily Show after over 16 years of excellent comedy bits and Jon's timely satiric ridicule of Politics, fraudsters, FOX and other sorry media outlets, and gas bag politicians while spotlighting and criticizing the damage they do to our nation. Yes, I will miss Jon but am wishing him and his family all the best as he enters a new phase of life!

Update August 7, 2015: sad for us + glad for Jon = #JonVoyage

Check out a previous post which includes The Daily Show clip of Jon Stewart on 2013's Sequester Cuts and if you type 'Jon Stewart' into the sidebar Search field you'll find quite a list of posts, most with topical clips from the brilliant political satirist Mr. Stewart!

June 25, 2015: SCOTUS upholds Obamacare again as Nemesis rises

June 25, 2015: Today, in a 6--3 ruling, the Supreme Court upheld the subsidies in President Obama's Affordable Health Care Act, aka, Obamacare.

As a symbolic horoscope for this event I'm looking at a chart set for Washington DC at 10:00 am the hour that SCOTUS ruulings are generally announced and a mildly surprising picture forms: asteroids Sisyphus (determination--though efforts may be fruitless) and Nemesis (the unbeatable foe) arise on the Ascendant (24Leo) along with transit Jupiter (expansion, growth, investment, development, ideals, politics) @20Leo conjunct transit Isis. Isis!

Naturally, Republicans are now and will continue to play the "fight isn't over" card (Sisyphus) though this ruling has excused them from having to come up with an actual solution for America's ailing health care system while being responsible for a regression to how it was prior to March 23, 2010 when @POTUS signed the ACA with 22 pens. This 'excuse' applies to Campaign 2016 candidates who will probably bark the loudest (guess they feel they must to satisfy "the base" and their anti-ACA political funders) and it will really gather steam if a Republican president is (s)elected on November 8, 2016.

And if we look to the 10:00 am horoscope's Midheaven (MC) degree, the Aspirations-Goal and Why? Point of any horoscope, we find '19 Taurus' with its interesting Sabian Symbol when considering American politics and the motivation of today's SCOTUS ruling concerning this controversial Act:

"A newly formed continent rises out of the ocean" (Rudhyar), an obvious reference to America as a 'New Atlantis' and the establishment of a 'new world order' in 1776. In his The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones gives potentials for positive and negative expressions of this degree:

Positive: a revolutionary potentiality by which each individual is enabled to remodel the entire face of the universe.

Negative (shadow side--jc): a genius for futile turmoil and persistent upset.

To me the negative expression of 19Taurus describes conservative US politicians to a T as they pose within their Political Theater performances which these days tend to serve as "governing" in America though it takes enough enabling Democrats to bring the New World Order script authored by foreign corporate meddlers to life.

"Sociopathy on Parade" - Thom Hartmann discusses John Boehner

#ThomHartmann #JohnBoehner #Reagan #Politics #sociopaths #MTP

May 4, 2015: A caller to Thom Hartmann's program asks if the GOP's John Boehner knows he's lying during his recent appearance on Meet the Press. Thom replies and explains how the Republican Party went insane with the Reagan presidency and how their cognitive dissonance (hating the government vs wanting to control the government) made space for sociopaths to step in who don't mind lying especially since they don't view others as human beings.

If you feel empathy for other people and support America's social safety net programs, depend on them, or know someone who does you may wish to check out this video! And please consider such information carefully before voting for your next sociopath politician. It seems voters' old feeling of deciding between the "lesser of two evils" will only deepen with 2016 candidates. Yes, Senator Bernie Sanders will put important topics into the debate mix yet who would cooperate with him and his progressive policies if by a magical landslide he became president?

So when it comes to lying politicians, personally I'd call such people psychotically divorced from reality which makes it easy for anti-government, empathy-challenged politicians to ignore how their criminal actions affect the every day reality of the American people. And this includes corporate CEOs, Wall Street gentry, and international bankers...basically, the global crime syndicate and all those who support and enable its tentacles to oppress and disenfranchise--not that some of its members aren't intimidated with threats and blackmailed into doing its bidding with (the alleged fantasy of) "offers they can't refuse." The rest are simply bribed with powerful positions, fame, and fortune and ordered to follow 'the script'. Integrity comes cheap in politics.

Related: view Mr. Boehner's November 17, 1949 natal horoscope set for noon since no birth hour is known. In September 2010 I posted a few notes on the natal planets and aspects of John Boehner, a Moon-Neptune kind of boo-hooer. Perhaps the alcohol helps him numb his knowledge of the truth behind his lies.

You may also wish to revisit Matt Taibbi's 2011 article The Crying Shame of John Boehner, "the ulimate beltway hack," who became Minority Speaker in 2006 and Speaker of the House in January 2011.

Apt or not, here are 5 Famous Quotes of Note:

"Every man thinks God is on his side. The rich and powerful know he is." Jean Anouilh

"Idealism increases in direct proportion to one's distance from the problem." John Galsworthy

"Puritanism--the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy." H.L. Mencken

"As a people we have developed a life-style that is draining the earth of its priceless and irreplaceable resources without regard for the future of our children and people all around the world." Margaret Mead

"The real lost souls don't wear their hair long and play guitars. They have crew cuts, trained minds, sign on for research in biological warfare, and don't give their parents a moment's worry." J.B. Priestley

Bachmann announces no run in 2014 (her video)

Michele Bachmann's Lack of Pressure

Overnight, a video of Michele Bachmann was posted to YouTube in which she announces her decision not to seek re-election in 2014 for a 5th term in Congress. When they say it's "not in any way" because of the competition or the federal investigation into her shady use of her campaign 2012 funds, etc, we can be fairly certain that those are precisely what forms the perfect storm she's not willing to fight against in 2014. Will her decision cause some of the legal heat to cool while she remains in office?

This Tea Party favorite takes over 8 minutes to make her points, so enjoy the uplifting music behind her and note how she subtly links her 8 years of service in office to the 8 years a president can serve!

Here are a few astro-notes concerning Mrs. Bachmann's Sun in Aries and who can forget her stunning brilliance when Bachmann's Gacy Gaffe Went Viral?

Sep 29, 2012: Happy Birthday, Stephanie Miller!

"Ladies and Gentlemen, it's the Stephanie Miller Show!" Plus, Her Sun-Moon Blend

by Jude Cowell

Since Stehanie Miller's irreverant, hilarious, and smart radio-and-Current TV Show from California let me in on what an entertaining broadcaster this daughter of Barry Goldwater's 1964 VP running mate is, I'd like to say, Happy Birthday, Stephanie!

Below I shall post a tiny smidgeon of astro-details concerning the sharp political analyst and progressive, Stephanie Miller, by considering the signs of her Sun-Moon blend of energies which may help describe her whacky and talented personality. And I mean whacky in a good way for if we don't laugh uproariously at what these political geezers and whippersnappers now infesting Washington DC are up to, then we'll cry and if we cry, we'll feel disheartened, and if we feel disheartened, we'll stay home from voting booths on November 6th, and if we stay home from voting booths on November 6th, corporate agents and backers of special interests will decide many pertinent matters that We the People should be deciding for ourselves without interference from outside or homegrown meddlers following some crazy Utopian dream so old it's gone gray around the muzzle.

Now here's a brief, none too intrusive (I hope!), astro-portrait of Current TV's Stepahanie Miller, born in Washington DC on September 29, 1961...

On that glorious day (using 1:00 pm edt for I know not the hour of her birth), the Sun for the 24-hour period was in early Libra (5:46--6:45), the charming sign of balance and beauty, and the Moon remained in one sign, ranging from 7Gem27 to 20Gem23 with Gemini the sign of Communications, News, and Youthful Fun--for which she harbors a reigning need (as denoted by one's Moon sign.)

Having Sun Lib-Moon Gem gives Stephanie a Double Air blend: gracious and intelligent, reasonable and clear-headed, witty and urbane, and a natural communicator who soars while building ideal political, social, and philosophical schemes for improving man-and-womankind's lots in life. Great for comedy!

This combo of energies (Sun = conscious mind, Moon = the unconscious--blending them is the most creative way to be!) leans Ms. Miller toward deep friendships though she prefers to remain carefree. A natural teacher, knowledge is important and novelty keeps things fresh for Geminis her many talents may be fully developed through focused efforts would add a new level of accomplishment to Stephanie's trophy collection!

Plus, Sun Lib-Moon Gem indicates one whose liveliness, diplomacy, and justice-seeking engages millions of fans on radio, TV, and onstage with her Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour starring Steph and a revolving cast of John Fugelsang, Hal Sparks, and Aisha Tyler. Mr. Fugelsang, soon to have his own show on Current TV, has asserted that people trust comedians most because when they're really funny, jokes have a huge helping of truth in them.

And audiences laughing at politicians and their political antics is fun and lets off a bit of frustration, I say. It's as if Stephanie, who grew up around Politics, lets us in on the cosmic joke we're being played for by the ruling elite, for most often the joke is at our expense.

Here are the planetary conjunctions of September 29, 1961: Venus in Virgo conjunct Pluto (sexy liberal!), Mercury conjunct Mars in Libra-Scorpio (political opininions that irk some people), Jupiter in Capricorn conjunct Saturn (drive toward major success!), and Uranus conjunct North Node (progressive political groups and activities, electronic broadcasting, new contacts and associations.)

Yes, Stephanie is a reveller and yet--a helper, as she often admits on air. But there's one cosmically curious synchronicity which you may not know: that her Sun Lib-Moon Gem personality blend is shared natally by Brigitte Bardot who so helpfully alerted us that, "There are no ugly women. Every woman is a Venus in her own way."

Happy Birthday, Stephanie, and have a great birthday show this Saturday night!

Roubini and Ferguson: Europe "On the Brink" (w EU Flag horoscope)

The Perils of Ignoring History: This Time, Europe Really Is on the Brink

By Niall Ferguson and Nouriel Roubini

As the euro crisis escalates, Berlin should remember how the banking crisis of 1931 contributed to the breakdown of democracy across Europe. Action is urgently needed to stop history from repeating itself.


As the social-economic crisis of austerity measures in the EU ruins the lives of millions of Europeans and threatens the delicate US economy with its global domino effect, perhaps you may appreciate a view of the EU Flag/NWO unfurled article I posted in July 2011 with the transits for July 28, 2011 shown around the natal chart. You'll notice the 1989 pile-up of Uranus, Saturn, and Neptune in staid, governmental Capricorn in the 2--11 degree range of Cap, where transiting Pluto, planet of hidden wealth, transformation, debt, and general power-mad creepiness, now lurks. These midpoint pictures continue to apply in 2012--Pluto is in the degree range now--and as usual, I type aloud my common-good views on US politics and politicians who now infest our nation.

You're welcome, America! :0)

On an Eclipse Note: the above mention of the difficult events of 1931 compelled me to peek at the first Solar Eclipse of that year to check its theme and to match it up with the most current year of our era--it's the 5 North Saros Series.

In 1931, 5N manifested @ 27Ari and last occurred on May 31, 2003 @9Gem, conjunct US natal Uranus 8Gem55--our planet of revolution, unrest, rebellion, change, and radical politics. This Eclipse occurred a few days after Bush-Cheney regime insisted on invading Iraq (with Jupiter the General Rx = a bottomless pit in the money department!), as you know--and another domino effect was implemented toward global governance. (Its raptor's eye is most recently cast upon Syria as Washington and Moscow "trade barbs" over the mayhem there as certain media outlets delicately describe it.)

5N's theme includes: sudden flashes of intuition, visions (of a new world economic order, the borry sastards), and prophetic dreams. (Brady.) And of course, the highly enlightened Uranus-Neptune duo, the poster child for the Age of Reason, are very supportive of such a visionary theme.

Blog Note: a hearty Thank You to readers this week who have left encouraging comments concerning the Stars Over Washington Monthly newsletter I'm currently working on and plan to offer asap--your awesomeness makes my hours of Political Astrology work worthwhile! Jude

May 5, 2012: Scorpio Full Moon w 00Cap Rising

Astro-Notes on the May 5, 2012 Full Moon @ 16Sco01

by Jude Cowell

Do you know that the May 5, 2012 Full Moon is called "Wesak" and as such celebrates Buddha's birth and enlightenment? For more info, please allow expert astrologer Dipali Desai to fill you in on that and more concerning the May 5 Full Moon which happens to manifest on Cinco de Mayo.

Plus, the May Full Moon falling in early Spring makes it the Flower Moon of 2012 so this lunation is simply full of meaning on many levels, isn't it?

One level is within the realm of Political Astrology and when the lunation horoscope is set for Washington DC, we find controlling Saturn 24Lib40 Rx (the Old Man, Task Bringer, Lesson Teacher, and the planet I often use to signify the Democratic Party which is older than the Republican Party though both their natal horoscopes contain Saturnian themes and traits, of course--and sometimes they switch roles between Jupiter's expansion and Saturn's restriction. In a phrase (politically speaking), checks and balances, the way the US government was meant to work.)

Now with Midheaven indicating the WHY? Point of any chart (or, 'The Goal'), we may expect issues of control, restriction, and delay to predominate, and for the Democratic Party to continue to be under attack by the GOP during this Campaign 2012 year. And of course, the May 5 Full Moon is the culmination-fulfillment stage of something begun at the last New Moon two weeks ago (April 21, 2012 @ 1Tau35, 3:18 am edt in DC, with NN '5Sag' at MC, and mid-Aquarius rising.)

Additionally, 10th H Saturn, its own house, is exalted in Libra, sign of the Scales of Justice (another 'balance' reference)--and with US natal Saturn in mid-Libra--we think of ongoing SCOTUS cases and the Justices veering to The Right (5 of them at the least) which is proving disastrous for our tattered democracy, what there is left of it.

Angular and Able to Act: 4/10 axis = Mercury/Saturn

Opposite Saturn is Mercury 24Ari51 conjunct IC (End of the Matter; The Drain; Real Estate: Homeland; Security v Public Status) showing Mercury/Saturn themes (serious business; dishonest people; philosophers-thinkers-planners) to those concerns and bringing in the influences of Mars 6Vir23 in 8th house and Pluto 9Cap24 Rx in 1st house; Pluto rising = major events out-of-personal-control?; Cap is ruled by Saturn, as you know, and Virgo is ruled by Mercury--Mars conjoins President Obama's natal Pluto in Virgo, as we've discussed previously (a karmic task to fulfill? issues of revenge, jealousy, big projects? weapons of war? nuclear issues? zealotry? any or all?)

What's Rising? Pluto Rx--and US natal Pluto

ASC 00Cap35, a World Point of Manifestation, and one corner of the very active Cardinal Cross so 00Cap35 'fingers' the May 5, 2012 Full Moon as being more significant for America than Spring flowers blooming. This degree recalls Pluto's entry into Capricorn in early 2008 when tr Jupiter was in process of opposing our nation's natal planets in Cancer (Venus, Jupiter, and Sun)--just as Pluto was readying to do so, but more slowly. Financial and political concerns in the US were being opposed by tremendous powers in high (low, hidden, foreign) places--and still are, with US n Sun yet to be fully opposed (13Can/Cap = critical-crisis degrees); then later US n Mercury Rx @ '25Can' ("A Man Wrapped in an Invisible Mantle of Power") will be up against wealthy, powerful Pluto of the Underworld but not until about 2017 (using a 5-degree orb.) As I'm sure you've noticed or read elsewhere, year 2020 looks to be a doozy in the making, for this and other astrological, political, and societal reasons.)

Jupiter and Pluto Met Secretly and Schmoozed Over Big Fat Plans

Pluto entered Capricorn only weeks after the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto on December 11, 2007 @ 28Sag24 as the plutocrat-banker-wheeler-dealer duo met for a champaign toast on the very afternoon of a regular meeting of the Federal Reserve Bank of America--and within mintues of Fedhead Ben Bernanke walking to the microphone and delivering their royalist message to an in-process-of-being-heisted-from American people. Recession in the US began in December 2007 and times when the systemic cracks and fraudster robberies could no longer be kept hidden from the public with the full force of Jupiter-Pluto exploding in December 2008 near the very end of the Bush presidency.

Do you know I remain in a major snit of miffdom over their Big Heist? Because I do. Their historial bubble-bust pattern is clear. Yet if President Obama had done a lot more for Main Street and for struggling homeowners, I'd feel quite differently even though Politics is only Theater, dahlink, meant for public consumption, with the real deals happening behind the shadowy curtain. Actually, the June 5-6, 2012 Venus Transit may time a similar scenario when unusual or unsuspected alliances are formed or re-committed to--or are broken off. Watch for 'musical chairs' among national leaders as the Summer season nears--and odd or strange happenings with little if any explanation given for them.

So! Saturn as the May 5 Full Moon's chart-ruler does make one major applying aspect in the horoscope, a trine with evaluating Venus 22Gem21, in 6th house (DC) and conjoining US natal Mars, a time when desires are enhanced.

Now if only the desires of the American people carried an appropriate amount of weight with Washington politicians, the servants (6th H) we've sent there to do The People's business and bidding! Yet the 6th H also relates to military service and with the Mercury/IC degrees as they are (22--25 Aries), I always think of the natal MC of George W. Bush. And you know what quagmires he and his globalist pals got us into from January 2001 to January 2009.

Okay, that's almost enough Political Astrology chatting for today. Here's an illustration for what I hope is a very lovely and healing Full Moon for you and yours in Mars-ruled/Pluto-sub-ruled Scorpio, sign of secrets, but also of regeneration:

Flower Moon 2012; to view more pencil art mosey to my Jude Cowell Art Shop at Zazzle for merchandise like pillows and wall posters, Secret Moon Art for gallery views, or even Cosmic Persona Designs...if you're daring enough and over age 17.

Now here are the "Images for Integration" for the Sun Taurus-Moon Scorpio blend of the May 5, 2012 Full Moon--intense, successful, and celebrated:

"Pluto takes Persephone into the Underworld...A celebrated surgeon amasses a fortune...A successful businessman probes the mysteries of life." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

Any of these sound like public figures past or present?

Well, Sun Tau-Moon Sco is shared natally by Prince Charles, Michael Dukakis, Erwin Rommel, Michael Crichton, Clifford Irving, and two former US presidents: plutonic Harry Truman, and Warren G. Harding who informed us in previously difficult times that,

"Our country needs not heroics but healing; not nostrums but normalcy; not revolution but restoration."

No matter how Mr. Harding may have meant his prescription then (and politicians always seem to have a default script running in their backgrounds!), to me his sentiments certainly apply to the current kittens-in-string condition of the United States of America--compliments of our elitist political class, SCOTUS, and the banking behemoths who direct, and own, them all.

H. R. 4646 (fees on all banking transactions) is but a myth!

Got Political Rumors to Share? Trust But Verify!

by Jude Cowell

After receiving an eye opening comment here which included a certain rumor, I checked it out and guess what? The following disclaimer is lifted by yours truly from the website of Oregon's Rep. Pete DeFazio. Hopefully, since Stars Over Washington is a mere 'freebie blog' (no money made here, folks), no one will mind if I pass it on to get out the truth about a rumor circulating around the Internet which seems to be primarily directed at undermining the Democratic Party and President Obama as something crazy he'll 'slip in' to legislation after the election.

Now if it were true it would be unconscionable as well as traitorous to the financially overburdened American people especially with Wall Street crooks roaming free. But it isn't. This from Oregon's Rep. Peter DeFazio himself who is allegedly one of the sneaky culprits:

Learn the Truth about H.R. 4646

An internet rumor has been circulating that claims that I introduced a bill titled H.R. 4646 along with Senator Tom Harkin and that it would levy a 1 percent tax on every financial transaction including credit card transactions and even social security deposits. This is patently false. H.R. 4646 was introduced by Rep. Chaka Fattah of Pennsylvania, and has no cosponsors. I oppose this bill because it wrongly taxes all financial transactions, rather than just focusing on the Wall Street speculators who got us into this current economic mess. Americans making normal day-to-day transfers of money should not be subject to a tax on those transactions.

These days there are innumerable rumors circulating around the internet. Both, Snopes and Politifact Oregon have debunked this myth, with Politifact Oregon calling it a “pants on fire lie”. #

Debunkings of H. R. 4646 to check out for yourself:




In the US, the dirty tricks of win-at-any-cost politics just never stop, do they? jc


Note: this rumor was originally trotted out just prior to the November 2, 2010 midterm elections--guess they're trying it again.

So with trickster Mercury (rumors; ideas) opposing falsifying, overblown, deceptive Neptune, I'll skip publishing the reader comment on this one. And if you are the one who left it, nice try. Either you're extremely gullible or a very bad sport.

Hint: as I've typed on SO'W many times before, I have a motto about such things that always has to be brought out when highstakes election seasons arrive:

Cheating isn't winning. It's stealing. jc

Bohemian Grove parties on! 7.16.11 (Alex Jones videos)

These videos from yesterday, July 15, 2011, concern the current 15-day Bohemian Grove gathering of elitists in California playmates on-call:

(RussiaToday) – Forget about Bilderberg. America hosts its own top-secret pow-wow every summer in the woods of California, and some of the past participants at the all-male Bohemian Grove party have included presidents, foreign royalty and Hollywood elite. They are gathering right now for their two week adventure, and filmmaker Alex Jones says he once snuck his way onto the secret site.

Alex Jones reveals new Bohemian Grove info and discusses the obsession with pro-U.S. Hollywood films like Captain America.

So I suppose this means that politicians, business leaders, and entertainers who can't be located over the next two weeks just might be busy gettin' it on in a secluded Bohemian Grove.

Wonder what plans for our nation they're devising between their cocktails and sexy hook-ups? "Captain America" indeed.

Okay, now I need to shower and hopefully get that raunchy image of Henry Kissinger out of my head...

Update: Here's more Bohemian Grove info from the Daily Mail: hacktivists intend to infiltrate the goings-on this year!

Newt Gingrich then and now: (im) peaches and tea

Newt Gingrich last won political office so long ago the chads have whiskers.

And though he's up to something GOP-ish with the big corporation Koch Brothers funded Tea Party movement, this article comparing him in his political heyday (think 'impeach Clinton') to his current machinations leaves me sputteringly speechless. Almost.

As I like to remind people whenever necessary: Mr. Gingrich is not from Georgia. I am from Georgia. He is not. And yes, there be many home-grown jackasses from Georgia and I may very well be one of them.

But Gingrich is from elsewhere.

So if you must, here's Newt back in 2009 accusing President Obama of 'coddling terrorists' while visions of Joseph McCarthy danced in his head.

You know, if it weren't so tragic for the entire world, I'd say, Crazy Washington! You impeached the duly elected president the American people liked while ignoring our calls to impeach the usurper, the One Who Should Have Been Impeached along with his side-winding sidekick who speaks out of the side of his mouth.

Sometimes you may have to agree with Ahmadinejad

If Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad comes up with a logical answer that explains the source of all crises around the globe, I just may have to agree with the fellow.

Drat!%*#. Thanks, corrupt US politicians.

Whether Western or Eastern, global crime syndicates are wreaking havoc across the planet and my suspicion is that their members both foreign and domestic are playing on the same team against the rest of us.

Unfortunately, most people never heard the starting whistle so disqualification came in mid-game.

Senator Mitch McConnell on video

Oh this is mean of me to publish this old video from the RNC 2008 showing Senator Mitch McConnell looking how he looks best...

You may wish to check out the senator's natal chart if you haven't yet: Sun in confusing, mystical Pisces, Moon in either feisty, pioneering Aries or complacent, stubborn Taurus.

The post also displays the 'frictional' synastry grid between the natal charts of Sen. McConnell and President Obama. Funny how the Republicans keep seeming to forget: they lost. And eight years of their mis-rule were way too many for all but their fondest Kool-Aid drinkers and the 'elite base' - so GOP political futures must now depend upon the oft-mythologized American public as having a "short memory."

Maybe You Do, But I Don't

Ah, eight years of Bush! Remember the old accusation: congressional Republicans are spending like 'drunken sailors'? Why yes, they did! And look at all we don't have to show for it. Except for war, war, and more war...that, they're still doing. But funds for the people's needs? "Too expensive," in chorus, coming primarily from the Republican side of the aisle like parrots repeating a rich man's mantra.

Well, hopefully, in the November 2010 elections, the American voting public will remember the condition of our tattered, less free, bankrupted nation as that vampiric duo, Bush and Cheney, cleared out the rest of the US Treasury and skulked out of Washington, with ill-gained loot dripping from their bloody claws.

Why speak so graphically? Because if you're going to worship Lucifer and do his bidding, you have to expect such craven descriptions of your criminal activities.

Astrology of Pres. Obama's return to Washington April 2009

Yes, we're hearing a lot of pros and cons about Pres. Obama's 9-day European-Asian-Iraq tour which completed in the early hours of Wednesday, April 8 (today, 2009) and while a large and disappointed audience may await the president, moneybags Jupiter's Sabian Symbol in today's sunrise chart (set for Washington DC, edt) is telling as well..."A Woman Disappointed and Disillusioned."

In America, Jupiter signifies the Republican Party and its adherents, yet if any female politician on Capitol Hill is feeling 'disappointed' now because of the results (or lack of) from Mr. Obama's trip, my question has to be: why didn't she feel that way about our coup'd government (heisting us blind) years before today?

At '28 Aries' is communicator of (hopefully) good news, Mercury, rising after the Sun (18Ari44 - sunrise 6:46:07 am edt) with chart-ruler Venus at Aries Point of Prominence and Fame...00Ari59 Rx.

Venus: "1Ari"..."A Woman Has Arisen from the Ocean, a Seal Is Embracing Her." Could this specifically refer to Michelle Obama's and Queen Elizabeth's displays of affection? Suits me.

Yet like many astrologers, I always tend to envision America in relation to this word picture, with the Statue of Liberty being our Venusian 'goddess' of copper, the metal of Venus. Also, Venus is US natal chart-ruler (of the Sibly chart - 5:10 pm lmt, July 4, 1776.)

With the chart's ruler retrograde, delays are afoot, and with (sunrise) IC at 10Can24, America's natal Venus, Jupiter, and Sun in Cancer are at the Foundation of the chart (or in the basement!) Powerful 'secret hand' Pluto in 9th house is most-elevated planet.

Anyway, our president 'came home'...Cancer at its natural spot (IC) with US natal Sun in Cancer = 'the leader.'

And US natal Mercury '25Can' Rx is in 4th house as well...'25Can'..."A Man Wrapped in an Invisible Mantle of Power"...which always sounds to me like the supposedly mysterious man who rode into Thomas Jefferson's garden late one night and delivered the design for the Great Seal of the United States as Jefferson and Franklin 'struggled' to come up with a good one.

This seal-delivering incident is said to be connected with Adam Weishaupt (the dark, caped horseman? or a messenger from him?) and his then-new Illuminati Society (Bavarian) which he organized in May, 1776.

The signs of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are thus shared with America's Ura-Nep-Plu signs...Gemini, Virgo, and Capricorn.

Yet these days, after studying charts, reading about politics and other mysteries, and blogging here on Stars Over Washington since Oct 16, 2005, I tend to think of the Great Seal of the United States and the mysterious riddle of its obverse (hidden) side as representing a watershed moment of transition toward the 'Novus Ordo Seclorum' - printed right there under our noses and tied in closely with America's much-vaunted 'Manifest Destiny' we hear so much about but with little honesty to encumber, or hinder, the legend.

For a quick view of the Great Seal, check the back of a US dollar bill, if you have one handy...the 13-step pyramid of power with its all-seeing eye of Horus awaits you.

One of the major factors in today's sunrise/solar chart (with the rising Sun signifying 'the leader' in a national chart - or to a chart relating to the president as we do here) is the Cardinal T-square of energies between Moon 4Lib11 opposite Venus 00Ari59 Rx squaring apex (focal planet) Pluto 3Cap18 Rx in 9th house of Foreign Travel and Distant Lands...

*Apex Pluto in a Cardinal (outgoing~initiating~outwardly directed energy) T-square (two planets opposing one another which both square a third point or planet) is an intense and powerful person or group with a willful desire to fulfill ambitions through manipulation, force, and subversive actions resulting in abuse of power.

This apex Pluto is the high-powered executive - or cartel - who demands penetrating insight into all crucial phases of operation (and I would guess that Pres. Obama journeyed abroad to the Old World to provide just that, among other things. Such a charade we're fed!)

Open contempt or resentment may be exhibited toward anyone who attempts to share control or power, and active confrontation may result. The Cardinal quality of the T-square makes this intense plutonian energy difficult to hide so that people in the environment quite easily 'pick up' on it as it shows its 'hand' more than it usually does.

There's a flavor of 'explosive endings make way for new starts' to this plutonian T-square, and the media honchos and reporters (reporters = Mercury '28 Aries' of 'disappointed audiences') may be the ones who squawk the loudest to fulfill their masters' desires for control, manipulation of public opinion, and power.

Midpoint picture formed by the T-square...

Moon-Venus = Pluto complications and a waste of emotions.

Welcome home, Mr. President. Sorry it has to be under these conditions.

Krugman and the too-small economic plan

Update 8:46 pm edt: seems Paul Krugman is fulfilling a useful role on behalf of the left and if economic and political improvements ensue, we can say, well played!

Plus, astrologers will notice references to 'ice breaking' and the old vs new order such as the ongoing Saturn (old) - Uranus (new) opposition has brought into everyone's lives. Saturn and Uranus began their present cycle in 1988 so it's 1988 to 2008...20 years from inception to culmination with those who prefer the status quo of Saturn (banking system) clinging to it for all it's worth...which may be nothing, as it turns out.

And which side is the president on? Paul Krugman is accusing him of being too status quo - and Mr. Obama does have Saturn Rx in its own sign of staid Capricorn.

Let's hope BHO's progress-loving Aquarian Jupiter pulls him forward in the monetary department so the weasels of Wall Street and in the musty dusty banking houses can be put out to pasture. They're way too anti-society for me!

Original post begins here:

Today I've been catching up with Paul Krugman's blog entries and wondering if he's been correct all along - Pres. Obama's economic plan in its current form is too small to be effective as more job loss woes plague us into 2010.

Actually my intuition on the subject agreed with Dr. Krugman from the start and I do wish the party-serving critics of Obama and the Democrats would hush up their pie holes and let America heal her wounds, many of which were inflicted or enabled by politicians such as themselves.

And in case you missed it, here's a video of the presentation Dr. Krugman gave to the World Affairs Council of Oregon on The Global Economy, given Jan 29, 2009, with audience questions following.

The video is 1 hour 34 minutes long with questions beginning at the last 30 minute mark.

Bill Richardson bows out Obama regrets

BBC News reported at 4:30 pm est that Bill Richardson has pulled out of the Obama adminstration's team.

He's out of the cabinet and blowin' in the political wind but says he will remain governor of New Mexico. Whoo! This is quite a game of musical chairs a la 2009, isn't it?

Here you may view Richardson's natal chart which was published here so promisingly just one month ago (insert slight tone of sarcasm.)

Video of Your Weekly Address from the President-Elect 11.15.08

A big shout-out to my friend, Donna D., who gave me a heads-up today that the president-elect's video was available on YouTube now...guess I was too early and eager yesterday to embed it.

Our soon-to-be new president will be videoing his Weekly Addresses to the nation from the White House once he's installed in the Oval Office. Now that's a groovy idea!

Biden's new Chief of Staff chosen

Ron Klain has been chosen as VP-elect Joe Biden's Chief of Staff. You may remember Klain from his Al Gore days.
