Trump Threatens To Crash Economy If He Loses 2020 - Thom Hartmann

August 10, 2020: Yes, the threats are starting to fly thick and fast from a nervous Trump fearful that all his manipulations and Republican Party dirty tricks won't be enough to "re-elect" him in November 2020 if a massive Blue Wave should wash Agent Orange away:

You know this very day the Sun made its annual return to its degree in The Tower Solar Eclipse Horoscope. When I used to post to SO'W concerning the difficult themes of the 2018 eclipse, I'd hoped it was only 'Trump's Towers' that would collapse into rubble and not the US economy at all.

But since the Covid-19 pandemic came along and the country, if not the world, has more or less shut down, 'The Tower' now suggests that a much larger rebuilding job is on our schedules. And who better at bad-tempered, sore-loser retaliation than grudge-holder Donald Trump?

Billionaires dumping US stocks: an End -of-2012 YOD crisis?

Okay, this is the sort of news I've been hoping not to hear--that billionaires including Warren Buffet and others are 'dumping' US stocks in some of our nation's biggest corporations such as Johnson & Johnson. You may check it out at Money News if you're interested.

And even though I know that astrological Jupiter signifies large sums of money, corporations, bankers, billionaires, and such and remains retrograde until January 30, 2013, I'd hoped that the end-of-2012 YOD pattern of crisis and turning points wouldn't indicate financial calamity such as the above linked article portends--in spite of Washington's ways.

The YOD's base is the Saturn-Pluto sextile, normally a helpful sort of aspect of 60 degrees, but the two planets involved are both considered karmic, or fated (reaping what's been sown--in the case of global financial systems, corruption, fraud, and greed)--and denote a working relationship between two planetary actors that can, if warranted, bring loss and destruction. Wealthy Pluto of the Underworld is super-avaricious, you know, and wants all the treasure.

Now tell me: have you been 'hoarding resources for potential future disasters'? Then you're feeling the Saturn-Pluto pairing at work, according to astrologer Michael Munkasey in his, Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets which adds these potentials for the Saturn-Pluto duo of energies in Politics and Business:

Thesis: restraints on destructive weapons (Congress and the White House after the recent school massacre in Newtown CT? jc); turmoil in any rigid or older structures; upsets in existing checks and balances; using secret police or military agencies.

Antithesis: secret preparations for future restrictions (so-called 'fiscal cliff' negotiations? jc); lengthy consideration of methods for removal or destruction.

Well, this is some crummy way to end 2012, isn't it? Balancing the budget precariously on the backs of the working class! Why, it's as if there are radical zealots in Washington who wants the US economy to fail! Plus, President Obama said he wouldn't accept a GOP deal that would harm the needy and elderly, but will he keep his Jupiterian promise with hard-nosed Saturn-Pluto aiming in his direction? He's looking mighty wobbly with Jupiter Rx and in the Mutable (changeable) sign of Gemini.

Now you've probably already considered the midpoint picture/s created with Saturn-Pluto pointing directly at Jupiter Rx in Gemini (sign of young people and of reporters colluding and otherwise); Jupiter simultaneously conjoins US natal Uranus @8Gem55, the radical planet of rebellion, sudden change, and disruption...I'll type them for you once again; the first potential seemingly has a positive nature so we may have to put our tattered faith in it:

Saturn-Pluto = Jupiter: favorable outcomes in the use of large expenditures of resources or energies; people with leadership and the power to dispense it; opinions about how to reclaim the use of waste products for other uses.

Saturn-Pluto = US n Uranus: sudden changes or upsets in plans related to very important activities; reforms in punishment for important crimes; the erratic or uneven use of retaliatory measures (Munkasey); now we must add this: brutal efforts to start a new order; an attack, regardless of potential losses (Tyl.)

Now if you've read this grumpy blog before today you probably know that I quite regularly complain about the power elite's determination to force a 'new world order' upon the world. Even so, I don't like to think that the last potential has anything to do with restricting gun ownership in America due to the horrific nature of the attack on the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Second Amendment notwithstanding, I won't say more but if you've fallen in with the cynicism that Washington politicians and their backers have managed to instill in many Americans, you just might understand what I mean without my having to type it for it comes under the heading of Thinking the Unthinkable.

And if the 5:10 pm LMT horoscope ('Sibly' for July 4, 1776) is correct and America's natal IC (End of the Matter; The Drain) is at the Mars-ruled Aries Point (00Ari+), then weaponry and rebellion are how our nation began--and how it will, at some point, end. For as you know, it's a natural law that the end is in the beginning...are we watching it unfold before our very eyes?

Economist forecasts Huge Crash (Thom Hartmann video)

Economist Richard Wollf's assessment of future economic woes on the Thom Hartmann's The Big Picture of April 25, 2012 ties in only too well with astrological portents for 2012 as mentioned in my last post--video is the entire program:

Well, you know what they say, Money can't buy you love! Or perhaps that should have been a snarky yet helpful memo for certain testosterone-laden US Secret Service agents who've ruined their own careers...

Bretton Woods dreams meet dark economic clouds as Pluto plods on

The Bretton Woods economic conference just ended sees a dark outlook for America and the global economy and these top leaders should know since I believe they've been in on the engineering of Financial Collapse all along in order to establish the kind of economic system they want.

Their goal of global financial and governmental collapse is proceeding nicely for the Chaos Creators and has become quite evident even to those who prefer not to pay attention to what movers and shakers are up to in secret places and ivory towers. All institutions are now infiltrated with agents who are actually duped into believing they will be part of the Luciferian hierarchy of favored subjects when all is in place and the world is ruled from Jerusalem or elsewhere...basically, they desire an earthly kingdom as if that will stave off God's ultimate judgment and the End of Days. It will not.

(And here's some news for the world's chaos-creating minions: Satan would just as soon destroy as look at you for he has no loyalties. His aim is to take as many souls down with him as he goes for he knows his days are numbered - his efforts will be ramped up and technological tricks using light and sound will become more fantastic than ever. In 2011, we feel the political and economic forces' hurry-up-NOW energies and attitudes being demonstrated in Washington DC and elsewhere as the Cosmic Clock runs down. My best advice is for everyone to make their spiritual base secure for the challenges ahead - and participate in democracy!)

Perhaps you read a recent Guest Blogger post presented by New World Order 2012 concerning such topics as 2012, the Illuminati, and the NWO with more articles and info promised.

Well, this morning Georgia awoke to damage from another massive storm system overnight with perhaps more to come. 'Sunshine after a storm' hasn't happened yet but the air is cool, the wind blows lightly, and the trees and foliage still standing look green as can be. Thunderstorms are not on par with nuclear meltdown, of course, but not to fret because in Georgia we have our own nuclear plants to worry about for potential future disasters.

So! On this green morning I type at you from my rain-drenched cave about horrific topics and financial woes that are being engineered by some of the same scoundrels mentioned in the first article linked above.

That regulations and wisdom from the Bretton Woods Treaty are under fire from those who want to build a totally different system, or order of things, cannot be ignored any longer, and I apologize for passing along today their dark-clouds propaganda.

Yet the extent of the damage they have and will cause may be mitigated by how closely we pay attention to what they're up to so that its true nature may be revealed, and the decisive actions taken to push back against the NWO tide. My hope is that entire populations will band together for the good of civilization itself - and say a resounding NO! to the devilish forces now throttling the global throat.

In the US, the success of the ruling elite in keeping us divided against one other and alienated from our own best interests must be faced down as the 2012 presidential campaign heats up. Yes, this will be a monumental task and a major test of maturity, especially with partisan politics purposefully stirred up as they are. In America we are known for our trend-loving immaturity and Geminian energies of never wanting to hear or face the bad news of others' dire intentions - this is a tendency our national psyche must move beyond if America is to survive.

Plus, the old debate of Democrat Party v Republic Party in America is a mere iceberg's tip compared to what's at stake and all that is being done by operatives underneath the surface of our daily lives. The ancient battle of Swords v Torches goes on yet only represents dreadful factions jockeying for position at the helm of a satanic hierarchy intended to dominate the world. (See 112th Congress = Swords vs Torches.)

For it is the next US president (s)elected in 2012 who will preside over our evolving global future as he or she builds upon a string of past presidents' efforts on behalf of an over-arching (over-reaching!) agenda to set up a worldly kingdom which will then lead the unwary into misery, not improvement. Few, if any, church hierarchies have answers (other than to succumb to the NWO, the sell-outs!) and most have participated in the ruse against decent people who want to live their lives, raise their families, and treat others with respect and dignity while working for adequate incomes with which to manage these noble things.

Astrology Spins a Plutonian Tale

Pluto's current traverse of Capricorn, sign of law, government, and business, is taking its toll on us with restrictive Saturn's background influence as ruler of Capricorn. In a mere 11 years from now, we will experience our first Pluto Return in American history on:

1. February 20, 2022; Pluto in 8th house of the Return chart along with a Venus/Mars conjunction @ 20Cap (a crisis degree); plutocracy's Pluto/Chiron midpoint = communism/socialism/invisible government's Saturn/Neptune midpoint; the return falls within the 5 New South Solar Eclipse Series: benefits and peak experiences; eclipse @ 12Sag22 conjoins US natal ASC of the US Sibly chart...something's brewing and will be in view; in the US Sibly natal chart, Pluto is Rx @ 27Cap33 and in 2nd house of Earnings and Self-Worth.

In modern times, 5 New South occurred in the years 1913, 1931, 1949, 1967, 1985, and 2003.

2. July 11, 2011; Pluto Rx in return's 1st H and re-creating its former sextile with transiting Neptune in late Pisces, and opposing Sun 20Cap (a crisis degree); activist Mars 5Tau is in 5th H and unaspected, or working on his own; this return falls within the 6 North Solar Eclipse Series which involves issues of relationships to father/authority figures, the need to take responsibility and control, and acceptance of commitments due to the unreliability of others; eclipse @ 10Tau29.

6N manifested in the years 1914, 1932, 1950, 1968, 1986, and 2004.

3. December 28, 2022; Pluto in return's 1st H with a Mercury/Venus conjunction in Capricorn; Jupiter returns to Aries Point, a World Point of Manifestation; this return falls within the 6 South Solar Eclipse Series which conjoins the return chart's MC (The Goal; Aspirations) with issues of a manic nature such as being forceful and taking power, great strength in relationships, sudden events, and huge efforts exerted in group endeavors; eclipse @ 2Sco01.

6S occurred in the years 1914, 1932, 1950, 1968, 1986, and 2004, same years as 6N. (Years correspond to WWI, WWII and the rise of Fascism, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Challenger explosion-US bombs Tripoli-and Iran-Contra details come out, and the Bush-Cheney wars in the Middle East now escalated by Barack Obama.)

Since our nation has never experienced a Pluto Return before, no one can predict precisely what it will mean yet the historical events of those years listed give hints of similar issues which will again be on the world's menu as the 5 New South, 6 North, and 6 South eclipses repeat during the watershed year 2022 of America's Pluto Return.

But first we must navigate 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Blog Note: my plan to publish this week on Summer Solstice 2011 has had to be moved into next week due to power outages and household responsibilities; it's quite an involved picture with many astro-details needing inclusion in order to gain for ourselves the larger view which the lens of Astrology readily supplies. jc

March 7th Protests Shut Down Bank of America branch! (video)

Being no fan of Bank (Robbers) of America, I am happy to post a video of National Peoples Action protests yesterday which shut down a branch of the so-called Bank of America. Great job, guys!

Let's keep on the banks' sorry cases. In a fit of personal protest, I switched bank accounts from a big bank to a Credit Union bank two years ago (hint hint!)

Meanwhile, you may wish to check out Make Wall Street Pay and let's do just that...even if the US government and the politicians who infest it are - shall we say - shy about doing the right thing.

Ron Paul on the Lew Rockwell Show 2.2.11 (audio)

Rep. Ron Paul holds the first hearing of the Monetary Policy Subcommittee he'll now be chairing on February 9, 2011 and here he speaks with Lew Rockwell on several topics such as the Fed (and how they're appearing on lots of shows and writing defensive pieces of late, poor things!), changes that must come in US monetary policy, how you have to have cutbacks in empire, not just the welfare state, uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, and how it takes young people to wage a revolution.

And as we've seen since conditions erupted in Egypt on January 25th (and in Tunisia prior), "The revolution will be televised." (Pardon my ancient reference. Must be my Flower Power Generation sensibilities peeking through...)

As Chalmers Johnson wrote in his book The Sorrows of Empire: Militarism, Secrecy, and the End of the Republic, the final sorrow is economic in progress. :(

Thoughts of an expiring American empire with its over-reaching and over-spending (the American people into the alms house) always reminds me of the Sabian Symbol for '1 Sagittarius': " A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire".

And all this for the forced establishment of a lousy 'new world order'.

Note: For live coverage of the fast-moving events in Egypt, may I suggest It's 10:00 pm est here and around 5:00 am in Cairo (Feb 3, 2011) and it's being reported that at least four people have been killed "under heavy machine gun fire", plus, cruel Molotov cocktails are being passed around while shots are being fired in all directions.

Plus, here's a link to the Middle East section of al Jazeera (in English) and a live Twitter feed.

Spooky for markets? The Hindenburg Omen

The fabled Hindenburg Omen is a stock market crash indicator that some say is in play now and may time a collapse by the end of 2010.

A few days ago I posted on market crash predictions with a Gerald Celente video - perhaps you viewed it. Mr. Celente has a good track record for market predictions and he's saying 'crash by the end of the year', etc.

In my post, I list the current Solar Eclipse Series we're now in since July 11, 2010, the disturbing 29th-degree Lunar Eclipse of December 21, 2010, followed by the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse at critical degree as a shaky time period for financials. All fall into the 2/8 money axis for Washington DC.

Here's more info from Mr. Hindenburg Omen himself Jim Miekka who says, Exit the market. Seems there are other trends besides the 'Hindenburg trigger' that should be taken into account other than the H Omen which was triggered in mid-August (last week.)

Yet going around saying such things is often a self-fulfilling prophecy!

Besides, not all Hindenburg Omens lead to crashes but crashes tend to have H Omens foreshadowing them. Plus, speaking of old Paul von Hindenburg, in May 2007 I posted on the actual Hindenburg Disaster of May 6, 1937 because it was the 70th anniversary of the horrendous event. Just so you know: Nazi propaganda was involved.

Historical records give us the exact time of the disaster so you may find its horoscope of interest, plus, there's a link to a video of the disaster itself in the post if you've never seen or heard this particular slice of history which had to have been the 9/11 of its day. And glory be! The airship's explosion into oblivion was caught on film so it was viewed over and over and over just like the attacks of 9/11 - seared into the collective's consciousness.

The Pre-Natal Solar Eclipse Series of the Hindenburg Disaster is the 11 North: sudden change of groups with which one mixes either through travel or through ideas; separation implied, but with successful outcomes (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

11N last manifested on January 26, 2009, 6 days into the Obama presidency, so I nicknamed it the New President Eclipse for what I presume are overly obvious reasons.

Video: How can America keep financing the deficit?

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts's articles have been favored on this blog for a while now. Here he discusses the purposeful destruction of America which I've been fussing about on this and other blogs for years. My typing finger is fairly falling off from all my fussing...but honestly, if we-the-people would realize en masse the power we have in numbers and the raging class warfare which has so far successfully kept us divided and conquered ('Rs vs Ds' and other political fairytales), we could take back a government that's supposed to be quite different and people-based than the monster it has become under neocon-Zionist corporatism.

Of course, we'd be taking back a bankrupt government but I'd rather America start from scratch than have what Dr. Roberts agrees is a bunch of 'desperate lunatics' continuing to man the helm as they crash our Swiss cheese ship of state.

So if you're marveling at how Washington and the Fed can continue financing the trillion-dollar-plus deficit, watch this video then click here to view the next 2 videos (about 17 minutes' worth between them.)

Catfood Commission vs Social Security benefits

Today I am working on an America-infused article for Julie Demboski's Eclipse e-zine so I don't expect to be posting today beyond this heads-up which concerns a post of mine you may have missed.

If you're in the mood for 1930s to 2010 financials mixed with a smidgen of Astrology and embedded within a classic film try:

Money in the Land of Oz.

And check out a previous post on this blog which includes a link to Alan Grayson's petition to Congress to protect Social Security against Alan Simpson's descriptively labeled 'Catfood Commission'. You might wish to watch the video of FDR signing the 1935 SS Act and making a few remarks on the topic as well.

Millions of Americans were starving in the 1920s and 1930s and tiny little SS checks made a big difference for them. If Simpson and his GOP comrades have their way, millions in the US will be starving again while our chaos-creating social tinkerers live high on the public dollar with abundant corporate enabling.

Vote in November, Send a Message: keep your greedy claws off my SS!

And please remember under whose watch the engineered financial collapse we now 'enjoy' fermented and blew up so that global-minded 'austerity cuts' politicians (Ds and Rs) in the US don't have to wait for Judgment Day to receive payoff for their craven actions against their fellow man and woman. For it's women who live longer - so obviously it is they will be the ones to suffer in larger numbers.

Vote in November and beware the closed-door planners of the Catfood Commission!

On the Big Hole America Is In (Gerald Celente video)

The other day, Trends Research Institute's Gerald Celente called in to the RegularGuys Radio broadcast to explain a few things about the Big Hole America is in.

And as you know, there's no way to explain our condition without lambasting the politicians, banksters, and other social tinkerers who plopped us there in order to further their fascist, totalitarian agenda which now enforces the chaos of dire changes upon the entire planet.

If you notice on the Trends Research Institute's website, Mr. Celente's predictions are compared to Nostradamus' predictions which most people know about because of the King of Alarm Solar Eclipse of August 11, 1999, in a difficult Series (1 North) relating to finances and which cautions on acting hastily since 'info is is distorted and possibly false.' (Brady's Predictive Astrology.) You'll remember how antsy Bush and Cheney were to march to war for they had to make the most of the emotions we Americans were feeling then as engendered by the attacks of 9/11.

Yes, 1N has been perking along every 18.6 years since its inception on January 4, 1639 with Sun/Moon 13Cap48. Interestingly enough, St. George's name (of Dragon fame) was in play in 1639 as the imperialist British Empire was making its staining mark upon the good people of India...and US-UK strong-armed paternalism continues apace in the New Millennium.

1N and the Jan 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse, though in the 13N Series, are linked bwo critical degree (13Cap) even though they're 372 years apart: both are in Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business, and both occur on January 4, as noted.

But 13N brings a different vibe to society:

The energy concerns large, ambitious group projects and associations; a previously existing bond is broken but joint achievement follows (paraphrasing Predictive Astrology.) This Series is seldom considered to be the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of the United States of America yet its flavor certainly describes our nation's founding; yet one would have to use its date of initial manifestation for it to be used as our nation's PE: August 14, 1776.

This 'works' if one accepts August 1776 as the actual time that the complete signing (s) of the Declaration of Independence by all delegates was achieved (it was) with Sun/Moon @ 21Leo52 conjunct Venus 22Leo46, Mercury 9Leo52, and warring Mars 18Can13, conjunct the degree of the current Solar Eclipse of July 11, 2010 (19Can24.)

Yes, speaking of trends, the rigid Fixed Cross Solar Eclipse of August 1999 foretold the dire warnings spouted by George Bush and his team especially once the attacks of 9/11/01 had been carried out upon NYC's commercial complex, the World Trade Center, and upon the good yet unsuspecting people of NYC.

And of course, Bush's famously inappropriate 'just go shopping' advice might be considered merely chuckle-headed if it weren't so draconian and telling - particularly considering the 1999 eclipse's other title, the King of Terror Eclipse.

How apt a title for starting a propagandistic "war on terror" campaign to mark the New Millennium and undermine the laws and fortunes of America! So tell me again: who are the real terrorists who ushered in the New Millennium - al Qaeda, or the hole-digging, coup'd-by-neocon-Zionists US government?

Economic Crisis and the Cardinal Cross 2010

Astrologer Theodore White has written a very informative article on the economic crisis which touches on the Cardinal Cross, a summer of turmoil, and how to manage what's coming down the pike.

Funny how I never until this moment related the worn-out phrase "coming down the pike" to Illuminati chieftain Albert Pike, an early planner of what we're now experiencing with financial collapse as preparation for the New World Order.

Noam Chomsky: "If the Nuremberg laws were applied..."

Three quotes from Noam Chomsky:

"If the Nuremberg laws were applied, then every post-war American president would have been hanged."

Surely no rational or realistic person will discount the possibility that [during wartime] the United States might suddenly resort to nuclear weapons. Those who retain the instinct for survival, not to speak of minimal concern for their fellow man, will seek ways to act before rather than after the event." (At War with Asia,1970, p. 52)

"Our crimes, for which we are responsible: as taxpayers, for failing to provide massive reparations, for granting refuge and immunity to the perpetrators, and for allowing the terrible facts to be sunk deep in the memory hole. All of this is of great significance, as it has been in the past."


Here's a SO'W post linking to one of Mr. Chomsky's articles from Oct 2008 on how captialism is anti-democratic, and how when the Bretton Woods Treaty was set up after the war, neoliberals - the same ilk of folk who brought us the 2008 financial collapse - hated it.

The Fed hawks + Michael Moore's Sun Virgo-Moon Taurus

Well, everyone is linking to an article by Tim Duy on the Fed's hawkishness vs the doves' embracing of 'green shoots' so I will, too. Duy's Fed Watch is an excellent resource for financial info.

Speaking of financial crashes, yesterday I actually attended a movie theater (unusual due to its overly loud volume - do they think we're deaf?) to see Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story, which I thought was excellent, and left the theater revved up for action while wiping tears from these American eyes.

Take some Puffs with you if you go because watching bank foreclosures on 'real people' is difficult to bear unless you're a bank officer or CEO - the ones who should be required to see the film before they're allowed to put another child out on the street.

And here are three chilling words from the film that come as close to the GOP's oft-touted "death panels" as one might ever imagine: dead peasant insurance.

Plus, if you missed it, dear peasants, here's the Sept 25, 2009 interview between Naomi Klein and Michael Moore on his film about the history of capitalism, the system's inherent evils, and how the (manufactured) financial collapse is impacting American families as it ultimately leads America to the 'new world economic order' that's been in the making for decades (or some say, since America's founding. Yet our founding plutocrats foresaw these problems and warned against them - modern-day plutocrats don't have to be evil, they choose to be that way. Money isn't the root of all evil but the love of it is. And as the film accurately points out: Jesus wasn't a capitalist.)

So what can we make of this Michael Moore and his AA-rated (accurate) birth chart?

Born in Bakersfield, California on Sept 11, 1949 @ 2:15 am pst, MM has 6Leo21 rising (with US natal North Node, a point of public contact with a Jupiterian flavor.) A lucky duck!

At Midheaven ('Mc' = Career and Public Status) is 26Ari46 with a 10th house Moon 1Tau53, and NN 16Ari49 in 9th house. Moon/NN = Mc: cultivation of soul unions; ego-involvement intensified in relationship (Tyl; Ebertin.) Naturally, Moon/NN relates to public outreach, publicity, and fame - and being Angular his fame is worldwide.

Chart-ruler Sun 18Vir20 (in 2nd house with responsible Saturn 10Vir42) makes only one applying aspect: a trine with hierophant, priestly Jupiter 22Cap25 Rx in the humble 6th house, which plays in to his stated childhood desire to be a Catholic priest.

Powerful Pluto 17Leo10 is in 1st house of Self, and what interests me in his natal chart considering his documentary film career is a sextile (60 degr) between 1st house Pluto and Mercury 14Lib53 (3rd h), the planet - and house - of Communication.

Mercury conjuncts Neptune 13Lib56 which gives much creativity and writing ability; Venus is in 3rd house as well, conj Ic 26Lib46, all indicators of a communicator for the masses (Neptune) concerning practical subjects (3rd house.)

Checking Alan Epstein's wonderful Understanding Aspects series for The Sextile (out of print), this fortunate aspect between Mercury and Pluto indicates a propagandist with a penetrating analytical mind, one who delves into facts and forms his own independent conclusions - great traits and inspiration for an 'independent filmmaker' to have.

Some folks with this aspect tend to control the scope or direction of investigations or are involved with people who do. Moore has been criticized for doing just that, and he has certainly interacted with people who are reluctant to share all the facts, especially the negative ones. I'd say he's made a career of it, wouldn't you?

And it's not as if a tendency to 'control the scope or direction' isn't useful to a film 'director' - you'd have a garbled mishmash of a movie if you had no control or editing talent!

The Mercury/Pluto sextile is a fighter for the free exchange of ideas and is unshakable in his opinions - sometimes to the point of refusing to consider alternative ideas. Ignoring or hiding info that could lead to doubt ('controlling the scope') is possible - which I thought was a problem with Fahrenheit 911 when he didn't address possible Israeli involvement in the attacks (or if he did, I missed it entirely.)

This aspect is very useful for investigators, researchers, scientists, and psychologists, and those who seek to probe the past; expressing ideas with certainty and a desire to challenge misleading information is helpful in the field of journalism.

Wrapping crime scene tape around NY's AIG building and demanding our money back isn't all Moore is up to in his new film. I recommend seeing it for its overview of the capitalist system, the Greenspan/Clinton/Rubin/Bush/Paulson/Bernanke/Geithner heistings, and for a closer look at what central bankers - such as Bank Robbers of America and CitiGroup - are doing to our over-scammed, bankrupted-by-experts nation.

Now here are the practical Earth-Earth Sun Virgo-Moon Taurus blend's Images for Integration:

'A nun finishes washing up in the refectory, and then takes the keys to the Bentley and drives off to see the new art exhibition...A sculpture of still life.' (Sun Sign-Moon, by Chas and Suzi Harvey.)

I shall leave the Images as they may pertain to Mr. Moore to your very vivid imagination...

Horoscope of the 1929 Crash: 'Black Tuesday'

A chart set for Noon in NYC on the day of the 1929 stock market crash - 'Black Tuesday' - is being published here because the image will no longer 'click-to-enlarge' on my WordPress blog where the chart's details are published, so I'm linking this post to the chart detail text there and vice versa. (Just tryin' to disseminate some info within the bounds of online tech quirkiness!)

In 1929, the 'little guy' working man (woman) who had been snookered into investing his life savings with Wall Street, was wiped out along with middle men who may just as well have jumped out of The Windows Of Wall Street for fear of prosecution for fraud and racketeering than for the loss of wealth which accompanied the exposure of their weaknesses, warts and all.

Now they've done it all again, this time with expanded worldwide implications for the 'global economy' they've always said they wanted (so the collapse may be complete and total, the better to rule the entire world, my dear.)

We now know that the Crash of 1929 netted a select few elites unimaginable amounts of profit and was something of a test - a major heist, yet simultaneously a sort of toe-in-the-chaos-water ploy. And what powers arose after 1929? Hitler and nazis in Germany, FDR in America. Flip sides of the same coin? Everyone knows the two men were born with very similar natal charts, so you decide.

But this time, the power elite are ready to finally fold 'em. They'll walk away, but we're the ones who must run from the results of their big Chess Game with Important Consequences.

And btw, if you do enlarge the chart for reading, you'll see that the Speculator Pair's midpoint, Jupiter/Neptune, was visiting US natal Mercury Rx '25Can' in 1929; on that day, if fact, so we see a picture formed...

Jup/Neptune = Mercury: communicating fancifully; changing character; the raising of hopes; tendency to put on an act, or to talk a lot.

(A chart-notation correction: marked in 7th house, you see the current Solar Eclipse as 'July 22, 2009' which should be 'July 21, 2009' for Eastern Time; notation should be on the other side of 'Jupiter/Neptune'/'US natal Mercury' because 29 comes after 24 or 25 every time. Post continues here...)

The Crash of 1929 was the raising and dashing of a multitude of hopes: for a funded retirement, college monies for a child, a first house - you name it, Wall Street gentry and their buds dashed it and walked away more flush than before.

Yes, you know it, you love it: it's an international Octopus with its life-squelching tentacles around the throat of humanity. Just say, No! to its further encroachments today.

Oh dear. I just ideologically joined some of the town hall protesters with their righteous questions shouted to a shove-it-through congressional team of on-the-take heisters and shysters. Well, that's just great.

See what bad and dishonest government can cause? The Act our deceivers are putting on for our edification is changing the character of our nation. And it's definitely not for the better.

Did you hear that sound? That clunk may have been the muted decibels of yet another US newspaper shutting down its presses - or being sold on the sly to shadowy foreign investors...

'Capitalism: A Love Story' by Michael Moore - video

This trailer about Michael Moore's new film, which debuts on Oct 2, hints that the movie looks promisingly informative and more than a little annoying for Bush, Cheney, Paulson, Bernanke, Congress, Wall Street gentry, and the rest of the heisters who've ruined a world economy so they can build it back to their liking.

Wonder if seeing Mr. Moore's film will change my opinion.

Merely a Lull in 'A Furious Storm'?

Is President Obama's rosy glow of an early economic upswing for real?

Or is it merely a lull in the eye of the financial hurricane?

Opposite America's natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx is an Illumination Point, an unconscious point that may be worth considering in this financial crisis. And since Pluto is Rx in our nation's natal chart (July 4, 1776), I'm using the 'rounding down' method.

Each degree is linked to what's come before and what degree's symbol comes after - a process of evolution, so more than one degree may be looked at for information, including those degrees that square, trine, etc, the point/degree you're considering. The Symbols are often used in rectification work, for some paint such an accurate picture that they bring a chart into precise focus (when an exact time isn't known, for horoscope calculations hinge upon knowing the hour/minute/second of a person's, entity's, or event's moment of beginning.)

In the case of the current financial crisis, I am inspired today by the archetypal use in current news stories and presidential statements of the word, storm, and people's loss of their homes all across America, no matter the cause. Loss of employment seems the most prevalent cause to me for mortgage payments depend upon having adequate income. Duh.

Yet even wildfire evacuations apply, especially if it's you and yours who suddenly have no pillows for your heads tonight.

And of course, there's Pluto's connection to The Underworld, including crime syndication; plus, he's also the Dragon Guarding the Treasure, the spy, assassin, and saboteur. Our country has been saboteured, don't you think? But is America down for the final count?

As evidenced in Astrology by Pluto's laborious traversal of the early degrees of structured Capricorn in opposition to America's natal planets in Cancer - Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and later on, Mercury - Pluto's 'secret hand' guise is guiding the financial show as 'he' heads toward our nation's eventual Pluto Return. Are we witnessing US leaders and foreign investors in conflict with one another - or in partnership working against We-The-People?

These questions are part of the reasons I keep grousing that secret manipulators engineered 2008's econo-crash which only crescendoed was a long time coming, due to the measured slowness and stealth of Pluto, who forever transforms...

A Little Illumination of US Pluto:

'27 Cancer'..."A Furious Storm Rages Through a Residential Canyon" = INTENSIFICATION...a pyramiding reality on the side of external circumstances, or of violence and terror as divine in their capacity for uplifting man out of his aplomb and demanding some manifestation of his inner ideals and enduring values.

Here is indomitable integrity of everything to be taken as of consequence in its own right, shown in the energy with which it preserves itself. Nature ever dramatizes man's unleashed powers, or his ability to rise in supremacy over each momentary crisis.

positive expression: an enlistment of every resource in life for a heightened expression of self;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: fatuous enjoyment of turmoil.

(My italics for 'pyramiding reality' as in 'pyramid of power' and Ponzi schemes; Symbol from SolarFire software; analysis from The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones. See sidebar for book in Amazon Slideshow.)

"Rise in supremacy"? But didn't America do that already? Then I'm guessing that the goal of world financial collapse is just that - to delete American supremacy from the planet's files.

And you thought we were bad.

Highway Robbery in California

From LACity:

'Sacramento's Dangerous Shell Game

by Antonio Villaraigosa
Mayor of the City of Los Angeles

July 22, 2009


This [budget] deal -- and the system that produced it -- reflects a clear abdication of our state's responsibility to provide critical services to its taxpayers.

The City of Los Angeles alone could stand to lose nearly $275 million in revenue and services this fiscal year. That includes up to $120 million in property taxes and $60 million in gas tax funds that the state is under no obligation to repay.

These cuts are simply unacceptable. They take aim at our City's purse strings while our local families get caught in the middle. They target our efforts to stimulate the economy, and gun down new investments in infrastructure, job creation, and the green economy.

We will not stand for highway robbery, and we are currently evaluating every legal option at our disposal to ensure that Los Angeles does not suffer from the misguided priorities of this budget proposal.'


A glaring part of the big plan to gut states, create a large centralized government, and meld America into a one world government. And they use World Peace as a cover! jc
