The real face of Coca-Cola

Even though I hail from the Atlanta area and went to art school there back in the day, I think this article revealing the real face of the Coca-Cola Company needs to be spread around!

Apparently things go better when you snag lots of public money for your corporate projects but that’s only part of Coke’s story.

And don’t forget: it’s the real thing.

Update on Swiss banks closing US accounts

Here’s an update from Bloomberg News on the hot button issue of the closing of foreign bank accounts held by Americans who have been able to avoid paying their US taxes – but is the jig really up?

Yet non-tax-evaders living and working abroad are in danger of having no place to bank at all if the IRS continues its long-overdue crackdown on such fraudulent practices which have been enabled by the Swiss banking system.

So perhaps Americans working in foreign lands will have to consider online banking as a solution to their ‘Americans are pariahs’ dilemma!

Not for me, thanks: but my own bank here can’t shut up about the joys and conveniences of online banking. In their dreams…do I look that gullible?

It will be interesting to see if the IRS sticks with its Sept 23 deadline for foreign accounts declarations, won’t it?

Remembering Alexander Litvinenko

In 2007, not long after I posted quite a few entries concerning the November 2006 poisoning of Russian spy and defector Alexander Litvinenko, my articles became invisible to the general public on my Political Astrology blog even though the posts were set for Public Viewing.

Later on, when I realized the extent of the mysteriously invisible posts which were still not displaying, I published a shout-out with a Links List to the missing articles and I hereby do so again in memory of a man who, though imperfect, didn’t deserve such a miserable end by an assassin’s hand – or by a president’s order.

Note: some of the posts do include my astrological comments and anaylisis but not to fret – they’re written in English.

Wilco (The Album): have a listen!

NPR has been upgrading its grooviness quotient lately by presenting such features as First Listen: Wilco (The Album) and this long-time Wilco fan heartily approves!

Astrology notes on Governor Sanford

Here’s an excellently informative post with Astrology details on Gov. Mark Sanford if you’d like a wider view of the fellow who was a big Impeachment Freak against President Clinton for much the same sort of shenanigans he’s indulged in himself, as it awkwardly turns out.

~:~

Update July 3, 2009:

i have received a message asking if i’ll be posting on Sanford’s chart myself and the short answer is: not if i can help it.

Others subjects are higher on my posting agenda but that’s only part of the reason, the other being that whenever Washington politicians make a big deal out of a sex scandal – as with Clinton – i always ask myself what they’re diverting attention from in another direction for there must be Something important we Should Be Paying Attention To that they may be actively veiling from our gazes. (Timing is often a clue.)

So j’refuse to rubberneck their hypocrisies in the ‘hot romance’ department – how very very boring. jc

FEMA videographer on 9/11 speaks out

FEMA’s videographer at Ground Zero on Sept 11, 2001 and for a month afterwards, Kurt Sonnenfeld, has written a book and is living in exile since 2003 with his wife and family.

Questions linger about the attacks of 9/11 and it’s important to consider that the 911 Commission was a white-wash of events and of the culprits’ true identities and motives.

Mr. Sonnenfeld was one of very few people allowed into the rubble of buildings in 2001 and has his video tapes showing certain anomalies with him. Yes, his home, his computer, and other files were ransacked and confiscated by US authorities years ago, but he asserts that he has the tapes and is ready to share them with experts.

The Astrology of 9/11/01’s attacks has long informed me of the dubious nature of the official story, and they very possibly qualify as a ‘false flag op’ – so I have linked here previously to VP Cheney’s progressed chart set for the morning of the attacks which primarily concerns Cheney’s Pluto/Chiron midpoint at Midheaven, the Goal Point of any chart.

So on behalf of my much-loved and native America I must echo one of the statements of 9/11’s video eye-witness Sonnenfeld in his above-linked interview, “Things are not what they seem.”

Bernanke and the Astrology of Dec 20 2008

Fresh Update 6.25: today’s McClatchy DC article post-testimony brings Wachovia into the take-over brou-haha.

Update Thursday 6.25: Bernanke testifying on Capitol Hill today.

Can he tough it out with the aid of Capitol Hill facilitators (who have their own culpabilities to worry about)?

Original post begins here:

Here’s the CNBC story about the Fed ‘cover-up’ when chairman Ben Bernanke did – or didn’t – threaten the jobs of managers if Bank of America backed out of the Merrill-Lynch buy-out.

An email from Richmond’s Fed head is being referenced on the matter from Dec 20, 2008 which astrologers remember as the day before Winter Solstice 2008 – and the day the Sun 29Sag+ was in process of conjoining manipulative Pluto at World Point 00Cap, the sign of business, law, and politics.

Plus, Sun and Pluto were opposite the Fed’s natal Pluto 00Can, and conjunct transiting Atlantis (‘abuse of power; where we feel doomed’) and Pandora, whose curiosity and over-stepping of boundaries unleashed the ills of humanity upon the world.

The only exception, of course, was that little drop of Hope in the darkest corner, the one we cling to now.

Perhaps the little drop will last a while longer for Mr. Bernanke whose Fed term, the article notes, ends in January 2010.

So did Bernanke make a threat? The email seems to agree. And in this astrologer’s opinion, so do the planetary energies of Dec 20, 2008.

Here’s a look-back at the August 1, 2008 Solar Eclipse of the NYSE.

President Obama as Freemason

Having just this minute joined AstroLuxx I discovered right off the bat a very interesting article on occult symbols as corporate logos which you may want to check out.

And be sure to read to the end where you’ll find a statement that President Obama is a Freemason as I speculated in my
Obama and 100,000 meet under the Masonic Arch post in October during the 2008 campaign.

Yes, I was only speculating then, but really: 100,00 people and a presidential candidate delivering a rousing speech under St. Louis’ Masonic Arch?

Rather obvious, don’t you think?

After all, through the centuries that’s how men catapulted into the top tiers of their societies and careers: by joining such organisations and if they’re really considered top-tier by groomers – by agreeing to be controlled by the Illuminati. (Some murder required to participate.)

Famous Quotes: democracy vs plutocracy

“We’re not a democracy. It’s a terrible misunderstanding and a slander to the idea of democracy to call us that. In reality, we’re a plutocracy: a government by the wealthy.”

- Ramsey Clark, former US Attorney General

“Of all forms of tyranny the least attractive and the most vulgar is the tyranny of mere wealth, the tyranny of plutocracy.”

- John Pierpont Morgan

(See JPM’s natal chart in sidebar of Pages. jc)

“I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.”

- Thomas Jefferson

Mr. Jefferson’s hope has been denied.

Did you say, more power for the Fed, a private institution?

And as wealthy old Cornelius Vanderbilt, railroad tycoon, once intoned:

“What do I care about the law? Hain’t I got the power?
