Papantonio: Defense Contractors Try To Gut Whistleblowers - video

Fraud loving Neptune now floating through its own murky, sometimes criminal sign of Pisces, just keeps outdoing itself as it expresses in the real world. And usually on Capitol Hill. Iraq war contractors, government fraud, the pharmaceutical industry--Neptune is working overtime during the Jupiter-Neptune-imprinted Obama administration--imprinted since their 3 conjunctions of 2009.

Of course, the criminality of Jupiter-Neptune, the grand scheming pair of wastrels, spendthrifts, speculators, and visionaries, is being conveniently enabled and undergirded by America's natal Mars-Neptune square with its misguided and deceptive motivations, misdirected actions, and 'fog of war' quagmires.

And let's not again discuss how America's natal Neptune @22Virgo precisely veils President Obama's natal Mars, planet of motivations and actions!

Max Keiser on Snowden's NSA revelations (w video)

International Confidence in US Economy 'Crumbling'

This just arrived and I'm posting it just as it came to me:

Along with exposing widespread international surveillance, Edward Snowden has revealed how exactly the US is financing its military ambitions, according to Max Keiser, who says:

"What's interesting is that Edward Snowden worked for Booz Allen. Booz Allen allegedly along with a few other companies are the masterminds behind LIBOR market rigging, energy market rigging, FOREX market rigging. And this is really the fuel that keeps the American military empire going, because the American economy, itself cannot support its military ambitions, so they've resorted to market manipulation and the kind of intelligence that Edward Snowden is able to aggregate is key to manipulating markets in ways that make Booz Allen, allegedly, the channel for billions and billions of dollars into America's military campaigns.

"And this is really about money, markets and manipulations. It's not about security. It's not to do with anything that the White House says. Remember, the White House is a puppet of Wall Street, Booz Allen, the hedge funds and the financial interests of the corrupt bankers."

So, then how do some of those big companies like Google, or Facebook actually benefit from the PRISM surveillance program? Is there a financial gain from them?

"Absolutely, because all of the manipulation involves rigging the indexes. And the indexes are all data-sensitive. So, if you can manipulate the data, you can manipulate the indexes and you manipulate the markets. And if you have advanced knowledge of that inside information you can make billions of dollars of front-running, high-frequency trading, algorithmic trading. And, of course, all the banks on the Wall Street are in on this and all the banks in the UK.

"It's very telling that the foreign minister of Ecuador said that, 'Look, you're talking about us extraditing Edward Snowden, what about bringing back those bankers we asked you to bring back to Ecuador who we caught rigging and terrorizing our market?' What about the Icelandic bankers that have been asked by the government of Iceland to be extradited back to Iceland that are being held in the UK?

What about these other instances where banking terrorists are being sheltered in the US and the UK? They're not responding to extradition agreements. So this is all about financial legerdemain. Unfortunately, Americans don't have enough money to fight their wars anymore so they have to resort to snooping, data-gathering, and market manipulation."

Will we see financial fallout between China and the US?

"Well, China has got a fantastic card to play, one trillion US dollars that they can dump on the market anytime and jack interest rates up five or six points, which would throw the real estate market back into collapse. China is pulling the strings here and China has all the cards to play. America is the biggest debtor nation in the world. Look at the bond market today (June 25), it's selling off spectacularly all over the world because confidence in the American hologram of finance is collapsing.

"They flipped the switch. They see that the emperor has no clothes. They see that there's no underlying economic activity to support the military and financial occupations emanating from the US. It's game over!"

"Censorship and Government Criminality" (Max Igan video)

Has America come down to this? I think most Americans know that our nation has been purposefully brought to this and that most if not all of the myths of History are only that--myths meant to sway the public toward one direction or another, as and when it suits the interests of shadowy puppet masters and their operatives who are, in the end, no more than psychopaths.

Included you'll find remarks concerning NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden:

Note: no, as a Christian I don't agree with Mr. Igan on many of his remarks concerning religion and am not a fan of Gnosticism at all. And yes, I realized decades ago that Religion is used cynically by the power elite as a 'drug' to soothe the masses. Still I glean much useful information and good advice from Max Igan's presentations. I hope you do, too. jc

Horoscope: Edward Snowden June 21, 1983

A Few Astro-Notes on NSA Leaker Edward Snowden and Saturn

by Jude Cowell

The Wikipedia page on Edward Snowden contains a measure of general biographical information about the fellow who leaked NSA intelligence to the media.

Born in Elizabeth City, North Carolina on June 21, 1983, Mr. Snowden, age 29, is being sought with all the force of America's global tracking abilities with help from other entities, it may be assumed. Some US congress members are focused on his alleged 'treason' though they don't care to discuss how the US Congress, the Executive Branch, and the Justice System have eroded the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution with their overreaching surveillance tactics and data mining of all personal communications.

When the news of the NSA leaks began, astrologers instantly thought of Mr. Snowden's Saturn Return (see dates, below) when they heard his age of 29 years for this marks the cycle of Saturn around the Sun. Taking responsibility and accepting one's accountability are lessons to be learned from the Old Task Master, Saturn. And of course, Snowden's 30th birthday occurs on Friday, June 21st along with Summer Solstice 2013 when the Sun reaches 00Cancer00:00, a Cardinal World Point of Prominence, Fame, and Recognition. Well, Mr. Snowden has definitely achieved an abundance of recognition this year.

Here's a view of his natal horoscope set for noon since a birth time is unknown and with a few astro-notes added below the clickable image:

As you see, Snowden was born with a Geminian Mars out of bounds (a lone actor), plus, a Locomotive pattern (drive to success) with Mercury @10Gem49 as lead planet and his facility with technology and coding bears out these Mercurial placements. Even Mercury's traditional role as The Messenger applies. However, if born after 7:08:40 pm edt, the Sun was @00Can00 giving him a Water-Water blend of Sun Can-Moon Sco.

If born prior to 7:08 pm, he has Sun Gem-Moon Sco, an Air-Water blend of mistiness that can easily dissolve into tears. From his one interview, this doesn't seem to me to describe him--though 'leaker' applies to his current status so I'll include here a few details on both Sun-Moon combinations for your consideration.

Sun in Gemini with Moon in Scorpio

With Gemini the sign of Communications of all sorts (and of duplicity), there is much to be said for his having a Sun Gem-Moon Sco personality blend with the Moon in Scorpio (sign of spying, secrets, and betrayal) for the 24-hour period of his birth day so we can be certain his Moon (reigning need) is in Scorpio where controlling, restrictive authoritarian Saturn now treads. Plus, at a crisis 29th degree of Gemini, his Sun would strain toward 00Cancer and prominence while retaining the crisis emphasis he has set in motion through his own actions.

Natal Moon ranged from 10Sco53 to 23Sco42 of the Zodiac and with Snowden's current troubles, I'd say natal Moon may be nearer the lower degrees of Scorpio for transiting Saturn this month is at 5Sco+ and was at 11Sco+ in February 2013 when journalist Glenn Greenwald said their contact began. (North Node, a point of encounter, meetings, and publicity is in mid-Scorpio as well.)

My point is that a Saturn-to-natal-Moon transit is difficult and depressive for its sobering effects and burdensome conditions. There is often a forced change of residence (Hong Kong, then on to...jail?) along with emotional deprivation, anxiety, and loss. Mothers and other females in his life may suffer (and I think they already have.) Illness from the stress is likely to follow and we know he has been diagnosed with epilepsy and used the condition as an excuse for his flight to Hong Kong with leaks trailing behind.

Plus, while Saturn (government, law, and business) remained in the final degrees of Libra where it is exalted, Snowden had a three-fer Saturn Return: 1. December 24, 2011; 2. March 24, 2012; 3. September 16, 2012. Libra is the sign of balance and Snowden seems to want balance restored to a fairer level between the people and the governing class, and there are many hard lessons to digest with a triple Saturn Return which will color his life for approximately the next 29 years.

Now Sun Gem-Moon Sco provides a picture of one who is both an extrovert and an introvert, and is provocative and paradoxical. This combo has a gift for selling (a Geminian trait of commerce and trade) and is happiest when there are challenges and intrigues involved within work situations. Restlessness and cynicism may be evident, along with changeableness and inconsistency.

Sun Gem-Moon Sco is the natal blend of novelist G. K. Chesterton so let's hear a few words from him: "The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people."

Water-Water Sun Can-Moon Sco

This blend denotes one who is perceptive, intensely emotional, and self-protective (good luck to him on that score!) and is deeply fascinated with what makes people tick. Genuine concern for the world is in evidence, and a preoccupation with hidden things is described. A lover of mystery and suspense, Sun Can-Moon Sco personalities believe in respecting the privacy of others (unless other chart factors interfere), and there is a subjective brooding quality to its suspicious nature.

Analytical powers are a talent, and when given a search warrant to look inside a bank account or other information, these powers become concentrated into a determination to discover the truth to the point of fanaticism. Living on the edge is attractive with this blend, and emotional courage emerges in times of crisis and duress--such courage he needs now and going forward so if this is his natal Sun-Moon blend, he possesses it.

Sun Can-Moon Sco is shared by neuro-psychologist, actor, and writer Jonathan Miller and the following quote from him seems very closely to apply to the stated views of Edward Snowden: "The human body is private property."

But apparently our personal communications are not.

Now as you see in the horoscope, there are several other chart factors of note such as a problematic Saturn-Pluto conjunction of control, a Jupiter-Uranus conjunction of international opportunities and tech breakthroughs, the Sun-NN-Mars trio that opposes Neptune (webs and spies), plus, Chiron the Wounded Healer sitting atop a star of Pleiades, Alcyone (something to cry about, exile, suffering) where the Solar Eclipse of May 20, 2012 occurred (00Gem20) in the 14South Series ('a peculiar turn of events'--Brady.)

Yet the hour grows late so I'll close with Edward Snowden's Pre-Natal Eclipse Saros Series, the 3 North, which is the PE Series of the CIA (1947) and of the attacks of 9/11/01. 3N themes are 'worries and obsessions, news involving young people, or news that transforms a situation. A caution is to not get carried away with large plans or activities.' (Brady.) Next occurrence: July 2, 2019 @11Cancer.

Great advice, but it's too late on all counts especially since 9/11/01 has been used to justify the USA Patriot Act which allegedly codifies our nation's march toward a Surveillance State which some call Big Brother.

Wonder if the mainstream media and politicians will now stop bashing 'fringe' broadcasters like Alex Jones and admit that he and others were right about the police state 'spyocracy' all along?

8.24.12: Assange Asylum Update (video)

Equador vs UK with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange between:

Guess Julian Assange in exile from his usual surroundings shows an influence from the current Solar Eclipse Series which manifested on May 20, 2012 @00Gem20 and conjoins Fixed Star Alcyone @00Gem00 with one of the star's themes being 'exile'. A similar expression covered by Alcyone's energy is 'refugee' with an overabundance of judgmentalism going on...

12.19.11 Adrian Lamo discusses Bradley Manning (video)

Stars Over Washington December 19, 2011

Below is a video gleaned from today's Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman interviewing the fellow who blew the whistle on whistle blower Bradley Manning who apparently leaked US helicopter draconianism and mayhem to Julian Assange's organization, WikiLeaks.

Adrian Lamo discusses topics that concern Pvt. Manning and Manning's tortuous treatment by a US government of bureaucrats and technocrats who don't appreciate having the ugly underbelly of war suddenly revealed in such stark relief to an agog public already uncertain that America has any legal right to invade and occupy foreign lands while indiscriminately raining death and destruction down upon the heads of innocent people...and then lying about it.

Why, anyone with a brain that isn't reptilian knows that karma (by which I refer to reaping what was sown) will be just as, or more, grievous when it comes round for payment due to the massive amounts of misery America has dealt the world by way of our government's political, military, and social actions. Actions have re-actions which result in unintended consequences of the "blow-back" kind, as the C.I.A. once nicknamed this karmic phenomenon.

And being treated to performances by a theatrically rehearsed White House administration and staff doesn't change the fact that a natural law waits for no man, and when the time comes, even the best-heeled heels in the board rooms of the global power elite will pay their karmic debts.

(And won't they be surprised? You think you get away with something, then Boom! the red dye explodes all over your greedy mitts and you're nabbed.)

As you know, it's been over 18 months' detention under grave conditions for Pvt. Manning so far. Personally, this American feels that 18mos+ is gracious plenty punishment for a young, idealistic Private though I doubt his case is covered by the Whistle Blower Protection Act of 1988 which purports to "protect"--it's in the title!!!--whistle blowers who uncover fraud or misconduct in or by the US military.

Yet if Pvt. Manning leaked classified information, he did so, not through prescribed military channels which would be protected under the 1988 Act, but to the techie services of Julian Assange who would publish the sensitive info unto the Universe.

And you know? I believe the Universe appreciates truth and has no time for well-crafted lies, imperial or otherwise. But that's just me talkin', not the Washington establishment.

Lunar Eclipse 24Sag23 June 15, 2011

Having returned today from a weekend visit in the Atlanta area, I find that one of our best and most prolific astrologers, Julie Demboski, has covered this Wednesday's Lunar Eclipse (June 15, 2011) @ 24Sag23 which places the opposite point ('Illumination Point'), the Sun @ 24Gem23. You'll discover Julie's article link provided, below.

A Full Moon Spoon in June?

Full Moons, whether Lunar Eclipses or not, indicate a focus on relationship and partnerships issues, awareness, and/or revelations with the stronger Lunar Eclipses bringing to light what's been hidden in the unconscious or previously undisclosed by others. They also indicate fulfillment of something begun at the previous New Moon, and since the last lunation was the Solar Eclipse of June 1, 2011 in Gemini, the 6.15.11 Lunar Eclipse carries within its energies some level of importance for the collective. This eclipse of the Moon is snugly sandwiched between two Solar Eclipses, a rather rare celestial event!

As you know, the sign of Sagittarius is ruled by abundant Jupiter, so financial disclosures may be a 'wild card' target for Luna's brightening influences in June. Alternately, brewing scandals may erupt so keep your ears to the ground and your eyes on YouTube.

Plus, the recent announcement that the Pentagon Papers will now be fully revealed may be part of the disclosure scenario of June 2011 as they'll soon be published unredacted (including online) and will go back to the 1940s and up until 1967. After all these years, we may yet find out what the 'big deal' was really about when the information was leaked by whistle blower Daniel Ellsberg and the New York Times published it.

Such a political hullabaloo was created, suitable for massive diversion from the business which should have been taken care of in Washington DC, circa 1971!

Well, today is the 40th anniversary of the NYT beginning to publish (June 13, 1971) the leaked info so you may wish to snag yourself a read of an interview concerning the Pentagon Papers on Daniel Ellsberg's website where you can read the 1971 headlines for yourself.

Lunar Eclipse June 15, 2011 and America's Natal Chart

So Wednesday's Lunar Eclipse Sun will highlight US natal Mars @ '22Gem' the day prior to the eclipse (6.14.11), a 'transit' to US n Mars which indicates taking action on plans that have been in discussion or on the drawing board for a while. Being too pushy, hot-headed, or impulsive are distinct possibilities but should be discouraged at this time. Plus, injuries to head or face, fevers, cuts, or bruises may come someone's way, especially if they're acting too brash or careless.

The eclipse triggers as well the natal square between US n Mars and n Neptune, one of the weakest areas in America's national psyche with its confused or deceptive motivations and actions vibe. 'Massive army' may also be a description of a Mars/Neptune contact, and that, we got plenty of. Too much in fact, for our 'global police force' role groweth old, unwieldy, and unsustainable.

Therefore, with the Lunar Eclipse Sun squaring US n Neptune on Wednesday, the US government, the president, and we-the-people are 'on our own' in a sense. Those in charge are elusive and/or deceptive so trusting them is a fool's game (as usual, yes, but this condition is highlighted by the June 15th eclipse - we may find out where we erred in doing so.) Someone will be intentionally misleading and clear thinking is quite impossible for we may be overly transfixed by the lustrous Full Moon's revealed secrets!

Traveling over water may be risky, too, and perhaps we should stick to creative or spiritual pursuits since hard facts may be impossible to determine or to confirm. (Perhaps what is allegedly revealed is a pack of lies!)

Having the eclipsed Moon opposite US n Mars may denote that the public (Moon) opposes the actions (Mars) being taken for they may not be popular or coordinate with current social trends or opinions. In any case, revelations of all sorts may occur on several levels this week and for the next few weeks - at least until the Solar Eclipse of July 1, 2011 @ 9Can12, which begins a brand new Saros Series, but the Lunar Eclipse's contact with our nation's natal Mars/Neptune square may give us less understanding rather than more...or, we may receive an incorrect picture or concept.

(See this blog's sidebar or underneath posts for links to Solar Eclipse columns.)

Now that's my Mundane Astrology take on June 15th's Lunar Eclipse which manifests in America's natal horoscope (Sibly version = July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA; ASC '13Sag') in the 1st house of Self which personalizes it for the Washington political establishment while collectivizing it for us all. Check other versions of the US natal chart to see where this energy of revelation and disclosure occurs.

So What Does the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius Mean for Me?

Glad you asked! First, note the 24Sag23/24Gem23 degree area in your natal and progressed charts for clues as to where hidden info or unconscious content may be revealed or realized in your life at this juncture, and read up on any aspects the Lunar Eclipse makes to your planets and angles, if any; other current planetary contacts and their rulerships will play in to the eclipse energies as well.

Then you'll find that Julie Demboski's The Power of Nature details a more personal level of interaction from this Lunar Eclipse in the sign of The Seeker than is ever mentioned here on SO'W with its Political Astrology focus, so my very best advice is to check out Julie's column, if you haven't already!

Are BP-Gulf Oil whistleblowers dying mysteriously? video

Are the several mysterious deaths and arrests since 2010 connected to knowing too much about the April 2010 BP-Gulf Oil Blowout? This video details 9 cases of interest relating to whistleblowers such as scientists and others who were or may have been threats to BP, to other companies involved in the Blowout, and/or to the US government concerning the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig (a horoscope of the April 20, 2010 event and the natal chart of Mexico are shown.)

The list of mysterious deaths includes the names of two high-profile men whose lives have been snuffed out since the BP Blowout occurred and whose deaths spotlight political implications: Senator Ted Stevens in an airplane crash (an easy sabotage for those who know how), and bio-weapons expert, Pentagon consultant, and aide to US presidents, John P. Wheeler, who was murdered in late December 2010 and his body stuffed into a trash dumpster where no one would ever find him.

But glad to say, the sanitation crew did.

The links to check out for yourself (as mentioned by the young men in the above video) are to be found at where you'll see this video with the links listed underneath.

Suspicions grow over Dr David Kelly's 2003 "suicide"

It's been a while since I studied the mysterious death chart of nuclear weapons expert Dr. David Kelly, but this is news I've been waiting for:

Doubts Grow In Whistle-blower "Suicide"

By Alex Newman

New revelations in the suspicious "suicide" death of whistle-blower Dr. David Kelly point even more strongly to the possibility of murder and a subsequent cover-up. #

And here's a link to an earlier article about how Dr. Kelly's post mortem results are to be kept secret for 70 years. Wonder how that's going seven years on?

7 down, 63 more to go?

Well, perhaps in spite of his inexplicable tendency to garner 'peace' awards unto himself, Tony Blair, and the rest of the Hussein-toppling crew, will eventually find their shadows being stepped upon by the Truth catching up with them. And that goes for Bush, Cheney, and Lord Hutton, too.

Oh, and let's not forget the mystery-lady American journalist that Dr. Kelly was in touch with just before he took his fatal walk and supposedly managed to suicide himself in a very suspicious, seemingly impossible, manner.
