Kellyanne Conway Invents Fake Terror Attack To Justify Travel Ban - clip

Either Mrs. Conway's bogus claim about a Bowling Green terror attack is a diversionary tactic going into the weekend to cover more damage Trump and the Republicans intend to perpetrate, or the lady has been reading and believing some of that there fake news:

Senator (now VP) Joe Biden on Shalom TV: "I Am a Zionist" - clip

Found at last! For years the location of this 2-minute-39-second clip of an interview with VP Joe Biden concerning Zionism (he's one of them, he assures us), Iraq, and Israel eluded me. Here it is, uploaded in April 2007 by Shalom TV:

You know, these guys and gals (sometimes known as 'world leaders') are spending a huge amount of their time, effort, and taxpayer money (and pretend fiat money) trying to speedily fulfill Bible if the God of All Creation is in need of their arrogant, anti-societal meddling.

Actually there are several types of Zionism. And from August 2010, here's a post on Zionism and the Natal Chart of Israel. You may also wish to check out a few Astro-Notes on VP Joe Biden if you're daring.

Julian Assange: article round-up w/ a Sun/Uranus square 12.01.10

With such a plethora of opinions spinning around concerning WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, and the diplomatic cables leaked on Nov 30, here's a round-up of articles for you in no particular order but with many thanks for the excellent work of Information Clearing House:

Who, Precisely, Is Attacking the World?

By Paul Craig Roberts

Not a single "Iranian expert" was capable of pointing out that the tyrants who rule Egypt and Saudi Arabia fear Iran because the Iranian government represents the interests of Muslims, and the Saudi and Egyptian governments represent the interests of the Americans. (Includes remarks on NPR's less-than-honest handling of the US-Iran-Israeli situation revealed in the leaked cables.)

WikiLeaks vs. the Political Class: Why They Hate Julian Assange

By Justin Raimondo

A revolution is indeed possible. That's why the Establishment of both parties, and pundits on the neocon right and the Obama-ite left, are out to knife Assange and bring down WikiLeaks.

The cover-up: WikiLeaks Cable Reveals Secret Pledge to Protect US at Iraq Inquiry

By Robert Booth

Ministry of Defence told US that UK had 'put measures in place' to protect American interests during Chilcot inquiry.

The Folly of the Israeli AND Arab Approach to Iran: Is Wikileaks being manipulated by an intelligence service?

By Alan Hart

The Wikileaks revelation that some Persian Gulf Arab leaders wanted (and still want?) America to attack Iran is confirmation of what some of us thought we knew - that Arab leaders are not merely impotent but as dangerously deluded as their Israeli counterparts.

The Proper Response to WikiLeaks

By Karen Kwiatkowski

The great US stumbles over itself to be inoffensive, seeking simultaneously to be both submissive and warlike when speaking to Israelis. Pathetic little weasels, the lot of them. But their pathetic weaselness cannot be blamed on Julian Assange.

WikiLeaks: Pakistan quietly approved drone attacks, US special units

Cables obtained by WikiLeaks reveal that in private the Pakistani government was not unhappy about the strikes, and secretly allowed small groups of U.S. special operation units to operate on its soil.

Canada's Afghan ambassador being dragged into the WikiLeaks mess

Canada's ambassador in Kabul has put his job on the line in a secret memo that lays bare the extreme level of mistrust and antipathy that exists between the Afghanistan government and the NATO alliance.

And, last but not least, peace activist Cindy Sheehan weighs in:

Where To Go From Wikileaks? The Peace Movement Responds

By Cindy Sheehan

Secrecy, spying, and hostility have infected our entire government, turning the diplomatic corps into an arm of the CIA and the military. #

In case you missed it, you may wish to hear the audio (3 mins 40 secs) or read the text of today's NPR feature Prosecuting WikiLeaks: It's Not Going To Be Easy.

And here's NPR's Assange arrest warrant timeline.


At this early juncture, my 2 cents' worth about the diplomtic cable leaks is that many of the US government's tears over the current WikiLeaks outing seem crocodile-esque to me, partly because I thought that everyone knew or assumed that 'US diplomatic service' was a euphemism for a team of spies skulking about the world's embassies! But what do I know, right?

Plus, if you're interested in Mr. Assange's natal chart, try yesterday's post including the post's comments with a discussion of a few of his main planetary aspects such as a Mars/Jupiter square, a Sun/Uranus square, and a dissociate, retrograde Jupiter/Neptune may spy a 'holy crusader' within his complex horoscope. jc

Rice inside the bubble

Totally unencumbered by reality...

Rice hails 'remarkable' progress in Iraq 15 Jan 2008:

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Tuesday praised "remarkable" political progress in Iraq, saying during a surprise visit to Baghdad that it represented a time of hope for the country. "Iraq is moving forward in a way that is promising but still fragile," Rice told reporters after talks with Iraq's leaders.

Churchill's thoughts on Iraq

"When Iraq becomes strong enough in our opinion to stand alone, we shall be in a position to state that our task has been fulfilled, and that Iraq is an independent sovereign state. But this cannot be said while we are forced year after year to spend very large sums of money on helping the Iraqi government to defend itself and maintain order." --Winston Churchill, 1922

"Forced" to spend very large sums of money?

After reading this quote from Sir Winston, I took a peek at his current Minor Progressions which describe the mental plane, for as you know, our natal charts continue to be impacted long after we're gone.

Sir Winston Churchill, born Nov 30, 1874, 1:30 am GMT, Woodstock England; chart progressed to Aug 25, 2007, midnight. Here are his Minor midpoint pictures which may or may not apply to anything under the sun, but as a consumate politician, perhaps they--and his sort of thinking--do:

Moon/Pluto = Neptune: sensitivity; lack of willpower; sentimentality; depression; fear of the unknown; feeling weakened somehow.

Moon/Saturn = Mc (Minor Mc = "4 Gem", near tr Midas 2006/07): sense of duty; feeling deserted; self-control; feeling ill or sad. (This Mc has Minor Pluto/Chiron, the plutocratic duo, upon it as well. Why does this not surprise me? And Moon/Saturn as a pair = ambition; strategy; direction. Hmph.)

Sun/Saturn = Jupiter: good fortune of an old or ill person; break-up of a value system for eventual recovery; cloud with a silver lining (that'd be nice.)

Mercury/Saturn = Jupiter: industriousness; philosophical thinking; success with irksome work; a fortunate separation.

Mars/NN = Sun: good cooperation; excellent teamwork.

You may have noticed the strong-armed paternalism in the above quote.

NWO's Uranus/Neptune Conjunction degree of 1892 (the robber barons and their spawn are riding still) is "18Cap": "The Union Jack flies from a British destroyer"...SUPERVISION.

pos: the self's ever-widening spread of interest in its insatiable desire to leave some permanent imprint of itself on everything it touches (like the 'mark of the beast'??);

neg/shadow/unconscious side: smug or strong-armed paternalism.

And the know-it-all Western occupiers are still trying to tell Iraq what to do.

Bush vs Al-Maliki (Iran)

When Blogger/Blogspot was 'down' this morning, I did what I had to do and posted Al-Maliki whines so Bush refines over at Jude's Threshold.

Are you bemused at how Bush defends responding to the "demands of the people" only when it doesn't affect his own regime? Neither am I.

John Howard has plane trouble too

Howard in Iraq plane drama 18 Mar 2007

An RAAF Hercules carrying Prime Minister John Howard was forced to make an emergency landing in southern Iraq on Saturday night after its cabin filled with smoke. All aboard were told to don oxygen masks. The emergency came just minutes after the aircraft had taken off from the Australian base in Tallil, an area known for its 'insurgents' loyal to Shiite leader Moqtada al-Sadr. #

It's not just Dick Cheney, it's his pal, John Howard as well. Perhaps they should both keep their boots on the, make that loafers.

Iraqi President Falls Ill

Click title to read AP article...Talabani was "on his feet" as he headed to a meeting Sunday with his top aides, then unconscious as he was flown to a hospital in Amman, Jordan.

An anonymous source says he fell ill "...because of continuing hard work over the past few days."

Hard work leads to swooning fit? Puh. Yet another hmm-m-m-m...

when Ireland ain't Iran

Iraq bombs from 'Iran' were created by UK security services --Terror devices used by the IRA in a vicious murder campaign in Ulster blew up British servicemen as the world blamed Iran 16 Oct 2005 Eight British soldiers killed during ambushes in Iraq were the victims of a highly sophisticated bomb first used by the IRA, The Independent on Sunday can reveal. The soldiers, who were targeted by 'insurgents' as they travelled through the country, died after being attacked with bombs triggered by infra-red beams. The bombs were developed by the IRA using technology passed on by the security services in a botched "sting" operation more than a decade ago. This contradicts the British government's claims that Iran's Revolutionary Guard is helping Shia insurgents to make the devices. The Independent on Sunday can also reveal that the bombs and the firing devices used to kill the soldiers, as well as two private security guards, were initially created by the UK security services as part of a counter-terrorism strategy at the height of the troubles in the early 1990s.

Cheney Pushing for Iran Attack, they say

Cheney Pushing for Iran Attack, Report Says 11 Feb 2007 Several senior members of the Bush administration are pushing for the United States to attack Iran, the British Guardian newspaper reported over the weekend. The report said that Bush had not yet decided on whether to move forward with the attack, but that Vice President [sic] Dick Cheney, among others, was strongly advocating such an attack in order to halt Iran's nuclear weapons development program.#

Here's my headline: Psycho-Freak Inspires Silly Limerick:

Beware of a cat name of Cheney
who wanted to bomb in Iraney
promoter of dread
he's lacking in cred
could anyone be more insaney?

Iraq-War-Debate Theater opens Monday

Why use 9:56 am, you ask? None of the House members--Rs or Ds--want to speak too early esp the West Coasters whose constituents may be snug abed without C-SPAN turned on, and the East Coasters don't want to fight with Letterman who will undoubtedly be justifiably spoofing them by 11:30 pm.

9:56 am seemed appropriate with two significators of the New World Order angular--the WHY or Aspiration Point (Mc) "18Cap" is actually the NWO's Great Conjunction of Uranus and Neptune of the early 90s, and natal Sun of the NWO is conj this Descendant and therefore setting in this chart.

Another tidbit of interest is that tr Chiron/Pluto midpoint is now at the same spot in the zodiac--synchronicity? Or global agenda proceeding?

As you know, the Chiron/Pluto is the oppression/exploitation of the masses a word, plutocracy.

There's a big, honkin' YOD, or Finger of God, formation pointing to lonely Saturn--a planet which on one level is the isolated leader--but on another level represents the Democratic Party.
With Jupiter (Rs) in 8th house of high finance--and residing at "16Sag": "Sea gulls watching a ship" reminds me of Finding Nemo--"mine mine" of the sea gulls...looking for any opportunity to get theirs (back, in this case. The Rs are running this as a "mini-political campaign.")

Given how things are meant to proceed this week in this "debate" with its "non-binding resolution" and the members "jockeying for primetime" and the Rs said to be "girding for broad defections" from their side, it's the same old PR crap, m'peops...same old thespianisms.

But there is an air of renunciation stinkin' up the place, and a YOD can indicate a Special Task--and if you read it as Saturn = Ds, the Special Task may be all theirs with Mars (males) and Venus (females) uniting to sock it to Saturn, the apex planet of the YOD--and Dem Party leaders.

Or are the Rs wearing the socks? We'll know more as the week's performances play out. But let's remember--there's always naughtiness (like trumped up intell on Iran) they're diverting attention from when they study their belly buttons so profoundly and dramatically! Innies and outies report to stage door in 5 minutes.

And what does Bil Tierney say in his Dynamics of Aspect Analysis about an apex Saturn in a YOD pattern?

Karmically fated--with "proper timing" (juniors get 5 mins to speak in between the Big Dogs' monologues) and "inner maturity" being crucial regarding their approach to this turning point, this fork-in-the-road--for a YOD is a turning point, and Saturn has fate written all over him.

Yet the task will fail miserably if unwise attempts are made to force this new direction before all necessary qualities have ripened.

Well I hope they ripen by Friday when the vote is expected--people continue to die while these jokers debate and auto-deposit fat paychecks into their accounts as they're yappin'.

More on the Iraq-War-Debate Theater as the week drags its ball and chain on by us...

Halliburton's check not in mail? and Anna Nicole

Army Says It Will Withhold $19.6 Million From Halliburton, Citing Potential Contract Breach 08 Feb 2007 The Army announced during a House oversight committee hearing on Wednesday that it would withhold $19.6 million from the Halliburton Company after recently discovering that the contractor had hired the company Blackwater USA to provide armed security guards in Iraq, a potential breach of its government contract. The Army has said that its contracts with Halliburton, which has a five-year, $16 billion deal to support American military operations in Iraq, generally barred the company and its subcontractors from using private armed guards.


Is this another reminder of our US sec Mars (military) now Rx?

The recall of troops who have already served may be described by Mars Rx, and delaying a check could be, too.


There's been another explosion inside the Kentucky chem plant today...evacuations continuing.


Sad to hear of Anna Nicole Smith's untimely passing today.

As you know, her son Daniel died Sep 10, 2006 of an unfortunate drug mixture and after looking at Anna Nicole's natal chart (sunrise/solar because birth time unknown--Nov 28, 1967 Houston)--and the charts for her check-in at the Hollywood, FL motel Monday, 2/5/07, 8:00 pm (the only definite time I have)--and at the planets for Sept 10, 2006--it would seem obvious--and astrologically obvious---that grief played a large part in her death along with negative escapism...drugs.

Her natal Chiron 25Pis20 Rx--the Wound--was being transited at Daniel's death by the North Node (NN) 25Pis21 which is connected to mother (NN of the Moon.) Mercury (young person) was opposite and conj tr South Node (SN)--a point of separation.

When Anna Nicole checked into the motel Monday, 8 pm, the Moon 29Vir23 was in first house and rising, and was conj her sec Uranus, planet of separation , disruption, and fact there are indications of some emotional upheaval for her which possibly involved her deceased husband's family and some news or info.

As you know, 29 is a critical/crisis degree, and the current charts show deep upset. There may have been some romance on the menu as well...a no-brainer where the former Playboy gal was concerned, I'm sure, but my suspicion is that she was trying to forget the loss of her son--or had given up trying...she had become Niobe, the grieving mother.

Anna Nicole's daughter is a wee 5 months old, and I hope her paternity suit--or situation--can work out well for a little baby girl born just a few days before Daniel's unfortunate death. It's common for deaths to visit families near the time of births but one usually thinks of older family members which is easier to understand, isn't it?

All babies deserve better family circumstances than this little mite has so far received, don't they? My deep condolences to the family.

Kansas City Chemical Plant Explodes

And speculator Bush sent pallets of cash to a war zone...and when the other shoe drops, it'll be the same size as Cheney's hoof. Send more, dumbleheaded Congress and Senate...are you getting kickbacks?

Between mystery explosions in Kansas City with its toxic, sticky substance spewing out upon school and dale and residents warned not to touch (duh)--and the untold amounts of extortion in Bush/Cheney's war--I'm mighty grumpy tonight. Just overlook me...

Mark Twain said

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.": Mark Twain (Samuel Clemons 1835-1910)

From my old favorite, Mark Twain. But even if the resolution passes, will it stop the madman?

SOTU 2007: drawer full of diamonds?

Tony Snow said that picking out the best part of Bush's SOTU address Tuesday evening would be like looking through a "drawer full of diamonds."
Now what Sabian Symbol do we know that relates to such a poetic image? It's the last Great Conjunction of Jupiter (Rs) and Saturn (Ds) on May 28, 2000..."23Tau": "A jewelry shop filled with the most magnificent gems." We are still in that cycle (since a conjunction begins any planetary cycle) and are now past their square/blockage stage and heading for the helpful, cooperative trine stage. Yippee...the rich get richer.
But as for Tuesday night's show...I've set this chart for 9 pm--at 9:02 and 9:03 pm, the transiting cusps will conj Bush' secondary progressed cusps...if you click chart to enlarge, you will see his sec (secondary) planets scribbled 'round the outside of the chart with nebulous, delusional Neptune first to rise.
Everyone knows it easier to deceive others if you've first deceived yourself.
You'll also see a few asteroids such as tr Sun conj ICARUS of the melted wings. Wounded Chiron is conj PALLAS, keywords: strategy; wisdom.
Chiron/PALLAS' degree "10AQ": "A popularity which proves ephemeral." Does this describe Bush limping through his second term--or perhaps the tarnished "popularity" of his 'surge' plan? That would have to be among the few Rs who still give it lip service, of course.
Moon in Aries = "I AM the People" so he'll suppposedly be connecting with the unwashed masses on his usual psycho-detached level we're accustomed to suffering through and from.
The forward-looking and radically-viewed Sun AQ/Moon Aries combo gives us these Images:
A court jester mocks the social injustices of the realm...Robin Hood and his band of merry men outwit the evil King John once again. (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Chas. and Suzy Harvey.)
Chart-ruler Mercury, the communicator, is applying to conjunction with wool-gatherer Neptune and its only other applying aspect is a trine to Mc, the Aspiration Point of the chart. There will be, of course, a lot of magical spin to this one by media types and others who bought stock in the neocon war portfolio.
The Mc's degree 17Gem07 you may remember from the Sea Island GA G-8 Summit of June 8,'s the Venus Occultation degree: "18Gem": "Two Chinese men speaking in Chinese in a Western crowd."
Venus occulting the Sun is an indicator of the formation of unusal alliances--previously unheard of associations...and I'm sure we've not heard the truth of them yet.
Consulting Bil Tierney's Dynamics of Aspect Analysis we see Uranus as focalized Apex planet in a Mutable T-square using Mc as part of the formation--and since Mc = Public Status/Career, I think it's safe to consider it. First the midpoint picture:
Jup/Mc = Uranus: optimism; ability to utilize the right moment (including a tv cue!); a fortunate adjustment to changing circumstances.
Apex Uranus = the impractical and blunt communicator. Mutable Apex Uranus relates to spreading oneself too thin (as he's done with the US military and to our tax coffers), and if mismanaged, indicates the social misfit who is willfully out-of-tune with society (ya think?)
This person is a law-unto-himself--a radical thinker who defies the traditions of society with his idiosyncracies. He may unpredictably overthrow his previously-held ideals with no real explanation as he acts as social catalyst for collective reforms.
Mutable energy being unstable and changeable, Uranus, the rebel/revolutionary/reformer will be evident, if not during the address, then it will surely be on people's minds if not on their lips.
Bush will be expressing his communal sense Tuesday night with his usual engaging manner (he hopes) but his mojo, as we know, is seriously damaged.
And as I've posted previously, I don't wish for his end to be a trainwreck--mainly because he takes America--and the world--down with him as he goes.
Guess I'll watch him squirm and dissemble once again while his sec Moon is conjuncted by tr Pluto...
Moon/Pluto: exaggerated new plans; zeal without regard for other people.
Transiting asteroid, Niobe, the grieving mother is conjunct Moon/Pluto and nearing 9/11/01's Mars, god of war. More grieving mothers bwo George Bush who insists he loses not the first wink o'sleep at all.
It's been said the 2007 SOTU address will be shorter than usual...but will it be enough time to tout one of his more pathetic accomplishments in Iraq...the hanging of Saddam Hussein?
Yes, President Widow-maker requests your rapt attention Tuesday night. RSVP--if you can stand to hear that voice one more time.
