The Republican Plan: Destroy The Government, Let Corporations Rule

Since 2005, one major thread of Stars Over Washington has been my complaints over Grover Norquist's ideology of 'shrink the government small enough to drown it in a bathtub' and its harsh effects in the real world on everyday Americans so it's good to hear Farron Cousins describing this better than I can along with the horrible idea of how America and We the People would manage under the heel of another disastrous Republican president:

After slogging through eight l-o-n-g years of Cheney and George W. Bush (from their SCOTUS-installed victory to the attacks of 9/11/01 to the Crash of 2008), why in the world would US voters ask for more of the GOP's authoritarian paternalism and financial oligarchy designed to weaken and destroy our nation? Why? It isn't as if the power elite will ever share a dime of their ill-gotten wealth with pilgrims such as you or me and it's foolish to think otherwise!

Could there perhaps be a much larger long-range plan afoot, a plan to which most of our politicians have taken an oath to that takes precedence over their oaths to the US Constitution and to the American people?

Republicans Playing Santa For Corporations; Bloodsucking Corporatocracy - video

Are you too busy with holiday preps to keep a close eye on current bills passing through Congress? That's what Capitol Hill politicians are counting on! And that's how they slipped the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 into being as they absconded from Washington for their ill-deserved holiday:

How JP Morgan sunk his unsinkable Titanic to create the Fed - video

Here's a link to this video about the Titanic sinking.

And contained within a previous post is an interview with Eustace Mullins who details the House of Rothschild's engineering of communist Woodrow Wilson into the White House, the conditions surrounding the waging of World War I, JP Morgan (whose personal emissary attended the secret 1910 Jekyll Island meeting along with other Morgan agents and villain Senator Aldrich), President Taft, and more by the author of The Secrets of the Federal Reserve. This interview reveals in 10 minutes very interesting material by Mr. Mullins, a man who witnessed it all.

To quote poet Ezra Pound (political prisoner without trial St. Elizabeth's Hospital 1950):

Here are some simple facts of the great betrayal. Wilson and House knew that they were doing something momentous. One cannot fathom men's motives and this pair probably believed in what they were up to. What they did not believe in was representative government. They believed in government by an uncontrolled oligarchy whose acts would only become apparent after an interval so long that the electorate would be forever incapable of doing anything efficient to remedy depredations."

2015 minus 1913 (a traitorous US Congress passes the Federal Reserve Act) = 102 years, a long enough interval to implement the creepy Oligarchy we now have thanks to public apathy, a century of deceitful propaganda, and the self-undoing that results from trusting the wrong people.

Oligarch Jay Rockefeller retiring but Plutocracy 'safe'

Since creating this blog on October 17, 2005 I have groused my frustration many times concerning the high-handed arrogance of, and the condescension shown toward the common good by, the power elite or 'ruling class' which is clearly represented in America by the House of Rockefeller among others (ex: House of Morgan)--and in Europe by its related House of Rothschild.

Well, inspired by the retirement announcement on Friday of West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller (b. June 18, 1937), who will not seek re-election in 2014, the excellent blog The Oligarch Kings has published a report on the Rockefeller family tree with details on which modern politicians are related to the Rockefellers and to other of our nation's oligarchical plutocrat families, past and present.

Check out the article, if you wish:

Rockefeller: Twight of the Oligarchs?

Astrologically, I remind myself of the July 4, 1776 condition of powerful wealth-collector Pluto Rx @27Cap33--out-of-bounds of the Earthly plane (hidden as manipulative Mr. Invisible prefers to be) and posited in our nation's 2nd house of the National Treasury ('Sibly' natal chart for 5:10 pm LMT) us an early portrait of the American financial oligarchy.

Of course, 'OOBs' means that secretive, stealthy Pluto was not actually on-hand to interact with the other players in July 1776 (he wasn't in the room, you might say) yet powerful Pluto's association with The Unconscious made and makes his rule all the stronger especially because he was in Saturn-ruled Capricorn (sign of government, law, business) and Saturn signifies control and the status quo.

The Illuminati in one minute or less

Today I am happy to present to you a column authored by astrologer Alex D'Atria of Modern Astrology. Alex is an ace researcher who sends this blog interesting news items and astrological analyses and today she steps into SO'W's Guest Blogger slot with a brief summation concerning the secretive Illuminati:


A few weeks ago, a politically interested family man, asked me if I knew about the 'Illuminati'. For his convenience I furnished their history as a compilation from notable essayists I’ve read over the years.

Illuminati in one minute or less

by Alex D'Atria

In medieval Europe big land owners and monarchies were the organized powers that ruled over the population. At any given time there were conflicts among them as they fought to expand resources and territory.

Waging war required negotiable assets and the nascent community of bankers provided much needed currency. Bankers became essential to the existence of warring land holders who required convertible funds for the continued maintenance of their jurisdictions. Beyond lending substantial amounts of money for war, these financial transactions transformed the small but growing band of bankers, giving them an important foothold on power in the medieval culture.

Moreover, the deceitful bankers escalated and expanded wars by simultaneously funding both sides of a conflict, thereby clandestinely ascending the wealth of the monarchies and land owners. However, as the 'industry' of war was created by the medieval bankers, they mutually spurned indiscriminate, outright risk of the public discovering their double-handed, devious manipulations.

The monarchies and great landowners utilized the bankers' need for secrecy to leverage whatever remaining control they could by creating an illusion of power, whereas in fact, the bankers had usurped them. The bankers and warlords became inseparable institutions.

While medieval to modern bankers prevailed, commandeering more authority than any nation or state, their primary imperative remains funding endless conflicts to amass incalculable wealth.

Many people understand that the U.S. system of government officially became a military, security intelligence, oligarchy under the 1947 National Security Act which granted them principal, legal authority over secret, black budgets.

The military, security intelligence, corporate, and business institutions execute strategies of 'artificial scarcity' in order to hinder the innate, massive, untapped, unorganized powers of the citizen population. Further, the oligarchy decided to demise the middle class, eliminating any illusion of democracy, by creating a thin, delicious frosting of plutocrats on their considerable, economic ‘cupcake'.

The Illuminati are the banking networks who fund and control the American oligarchy and the world's national and state economies. Putting all the legends and myths aside, the bottom line is that the global bankers rule planet earth.

But don't give up and give in for it continues to be a long battle to build our collective power - keep at it.


Democracy is a participatory form of government. To function correctly we need to become proud members and part of the process. For people with busy lives these organizations can be an excellent means to get involved:

Obama to Wall Street 9.14.09: Sun Virgo-Moon Cancer

It's been a year since Lehman Brothers failed, as you know the biggest bankruptcy in US history, so I'm looking at last year's Sun-Moon blend to gain a smidge of insight, and also at today's blend as the President heads to Wall Street to ask the leopard to change his spots and cease taking such high risks that our economy falters.

With 2009 being a year of a Great Conjunction of the speculator-inflationary pair, Jupiter and Neptune, I wish him luck with that. After all, the New York Stock Exchange was formed under the optimistic rays of a Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in Airy Libra with this year's conjunction/s in Airy Aquarius.

On Sept 14, 2008, the Sun was, of course, in Virgo, but where was the Moon?

In often murky Pisces and at Balsamic phase - the dark of the Moon when secretive things may occur under the radar. The Full Moon occurred on Sep 15, 2008 at 5:13 am edt in NY @ 22Pisces54.

Sun 22Vir54 was near a 13Vir20 Saturn, with Moon having just moved beyond disruptive Uranus 20Pis35 Rx - Moon/Uranus contacts can indicate emotional shocks and sudden changes of lifestyle. And the Sun-Moon opposition formed a T-Square pattern with Pluto at apex. This forms a midpoint picture:

Sun/Moon = Pluto: biased attitudes or changed circumstances lead to critical phases of development; a soul torn by inner conflict. (Ebertin.)

The Images for Integrationfor Sep 14, 2008 which apply for the Full Moon as well are:

'The scientist has a dream and then, in his sacred laboratory, puts the finishing touches on his magnum opus...A peasant rests in the wheat field, and shares his bread, cheese, wine, and wisdom with the hungry laborers.'

'Magnum opus' reminds me of the NWO agenda, of course.

Mr. Obama goes to Wall Street Sep 14, 2009:

Today's Sun Vir-Moon Cancer seems quite illuminating since it mentions America's largest creditor - the nation, not the women:

'Two old Chinese women gossip about family problems as they work rhythmically in the rice paddies...The working mother...A nutritionist serves his family organically grown chicken soup. (Sun Sign, Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

The critical need for Wall Street to begin acting as if it gives a fig for how its actions affect the US financial system is shown by today's YOD (Finger of God ) pattern between Moon sextile Saturn (24Vir36) which 'points' to nebulous, veiling Neptune 24AQ21 Rx, so this pictures emerges:

Moon/Saturn = Neptune: mirthlessness; anxiety; feeling inferior; sickness of the soul. (Ebertin; Tyl.)

Guess that's 'chicken soup' for the sick soul of a sold-out nation - sold out by Wall Street's and Capitol Hill's lust for wealth and power.

As I said: good luck to the President on his mission as he lobbies the leopards on Wall Street today. His speech may be an exercise in public relations meant to fluff up consumer confidence, more than anything. And it's being performed during a 3rd quarter Moon, the crisis in consciousness phase.

And now a quote from one who shares natally the Sun Virgo-Moon Cancer blend:

"Is it altogether a utopian dream, that once in history a ruling class might be willing to make the great surrender, and permit social change to come about without hatred, turmoil, and waste of human life?"

Upton Sinclair

Oh dear. If frettings about NWO plans are correct, social turmoil is just what the chaos-creating, social tinkerering, financial oligarchs want!

US strangled by a financial oligarchy

Perhaps you caught Terry Gross' interview today with former chief economist of the IMF, Simon Johnson who says that breaking up America's financial oligarchy is the country's only hope of recovery. (Read or listen.)

Yet here's someone who only partially agrees with him.

Professor Johnson (MIT's Sloan School of Management) was at the IMF in 2007 and 2008(seems to me he was in the quick money shuffle, but what do I know?), yet he makes a lot of sense: the US government should nationalize banks so they could wipe out bank shareholders, replace failed managers, clean up the balance sheets, and then sell the banks back to the private sector.

Now I'm definitely no economist and my brain is chocked full of antihistamines at the moment, but isn't this much of what FDR did a few decades ago?

Financial oligarchy: government officials and elite members of the financial sector that run the country like a profit-seeking company.

This gives, he points out, the financial sector veto power over public policy.

And we don't have to read about it, we experience and suffer by it every day.

Sounds like an apt description of America's birth chart with Pluto in Capricorn - in the second house of Money and Earning Ability...meaning that we-the-people have had public policy and the common good overridden by the ruling elite since day one. Johnson speaks of 'balance' yet there is no balance in such an arrangement unless good faith and common decency are part of the picture.

One difference now is that 98% of them care not a wit for the common good which they consider expendable to their world domination plans. In fact, it's an obstacle to fulfilling their long-held vision.

And I notice that Prof. Johnson makes no mention of a new world economic order which, if in the works, must be an agenda he is very well acquainted with.

Well I'd have to say that 'financial oligarchy' is what we're saddled with all right - for several years, years which include Simon Johnson's time at the IMF. And I've not yet found mention of just which private persons or entities would be the lucky ducks to buy back the scrubbed banks.

But perhaps Russia could advise us on that.
