Pfizer’s medical fraud against women

The news about drug company Pfizer and their medical fraud promoting HRT drugs (hormone replacement therapy) isn’t good.

Big Pharma’s scare tactics campaign began in 1966 with a book called ‘Forever Feminine’ which termed menopause a degenerative disease that must be treated by drugs – whether women want them or not.

Well, HRTs ‘treat’ us all right but the deceptions about HRTs’ “protective” capabilities against heart attacks, dementia, cancer, or any other condition have now been revealed as fraudulent thanks to the ongoing litigation.

Yes, Pfizer is lawyered up – but their perfidies have been revealed.

Clinton, Reno, and the Siege at Waco

If you’re interested in a Mundane Astrology post (written in plain English) on subjects such as Insider Trading on 9/11 and what then-Atty General Janet Reno may have held over President Bill Clinton’s head concerning the Siege at Waco, info which made him reappoint her for a 2nd term as US Attorney General, whisk your way to Stars Over Washington with little, if any, measurable delay.

Even if the words ‘false flag ops’ mean nothing to you, do check it out, if you wish, since that particular controversial phrase is not mentioned in my post, I PROMISe!

You’ll discover there a video with Sean Hannity and Dick Morris talking about Reno and her boss, Bill Clinton. In fact, watching the video is what spurred my post in the first place.

And here’s a similar view that President Clinton, not Janet Reno, was the orchestrator of the Waco tragedy.

Greece raises white flag April 23, 2010

Well, today Greece has raised the white flag and asked for financial aid from her euro partners and the IMF.

All righty then, says Germany, but Angela Merkel plans to be ‘strict’.

Then perhaps the US needs Merkel to school Goldman Sachs for hiding the true magnitude of Greece’s debt!

Simon Johnson: banks already coming after Democrats

In case you missed it, here’s Simon Johnson’s What Should the President Say on Thursday?

Financial reform legislation will likely end up a casualty of the upcoming November elections as lawmakers are too afraid to do much about the mega-banks who finance their campaigns – assuming they ever would.

And since, as Simon Johnson says, (big) banks “are already coming after Democrats”, the American people may entertain little hope that Capitol Hill elites will make useful improvements in our financial system in spite of an obvious need to reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act.

Now I don’t know at what hour the President speaks on financial reform, but this morning, the Moon sailed passed Mr. Obama’s natal Sun ’13Leo’ (edt) an hour or so ago and remains in Leo until midnight so we may wish to consider today’s Earth-Fire Sun Taurus-Moon Leo blend.

This blend is that of a leader with practical imagination, pride, fixed opinions, and strong values. It can be snobbish, vain, materialistic, ambitious, and masterful.

There’s an innate resourcefulness, personal magnetism, tremendous willpower, with an instinctive patience and persistence when focusing on long-term goals. Expressing opinions with full force can alienate others, and expert astrologer Noel Tyl says it has a “passionate stubbornness” and is “quite dramatic” and that “dynamic organization can be brought to bear on ideas, relationships, and plans.”

This blend has two ‘Images for Integration’ = “On a perfect summer’s evening, a performance of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is held in the palace garden” (uh-oh! jc)…”Keeping up with the Joneses.”

(Isn’t there a new film coming out now about the Joneses?)

Now here’s a quote from a past political leader who shares Sun Tau-Moon Leo in his natal chart…to me it sounds like Politics the world over – and Washington DC as led by global elite bankers in particular:

“Whenever you accept our views, we shall be in full agreement with you.” Moshe Dayan

Sending out Good Luck Wishes to President Obama as he promotes his financial reform sales campaign!

Lyrids peak Apr 22 2010 and First Light images of Sun

Space Weather News for April 21, 2010

MUST-SEE IMAGES OF THE SUN: At a press conference today, researchers unveiled First Light images from the Solar Dynamics Observatory, NASA’s “Hubble for the Sun.”

There are huge erupting prominences, crackling solar flares, and gigantic shock waves shown with a clarity ten times better than HDTV. The images must be seen to be believed.

Go directly to NASA for the full story.

LYRID METEOR SHOWER: The Lyrid meteor shower peaks on April 22 when Earth passes through a stream of debris from Comet Thatcher (C/1861 G1).

The best time to look is during the hours before dawn on Thursday morning. Forecasters expect as many as 20 meteors per hour so check SpaceWeather.com for more information.

How lovely of the Lyrids to peak on the morning of Earth Day! Now if I can just get the vision of Margaret Thatcher’s ironclad mug out of my mind’s eye…

But actually, the Lowell Observatory can tell you all about the Lyrids and much more!

Earth Day April 22, 2010

First Photo of Earth from Space

In honor of you, one of my fellow earthlings, I have rounded up a history of Earth Day which we earthlings celebrate tomorrow, April 22.

Guess we should all be grateful that our planet still exists to orbit in its course in spite of what chemical compounds, plastics, toxins, and other pollutants have done to rearrange the place, and all for corporate profits and perhaps a smidge of population control tactics tossed in, sad to say.

And speaking of polluting the earth, have you ever visited my Dreamyfish Art collection? The blog’s main theme (besides its intimate portraits of tropical fishies which I am prone to drawing) is: Save Our Oceans!

Just thought you might wish to know. Oh, and you’ll find a Marine News feed there as well to help you catch up on environmental and oceanic news stories.

‘Piling on’ Goldman Sachs

Heads-Up! Update April 20, 2010: on a related financial subject, I have just added to the Pages column (in the sidebar of this blog) a link to a ‘Banking Crisis Timeline’ in case you’re interested. It’s easy to spot at the top of the Pages list and contains several links to articles about Goldman Sachs in chronological order (among others.)

However, many of the variously sourced Timeline articles may be propagandistic, so have several grains of salt nearby just in case.

Original post begins here:

Now I know you heard last week the news flash about the SEC’s lawsuit against Goldman Sachs for their fraudulent, villainous shenanigans in the subprime housing market.

And I doubt that the perpetrators at Goldman Sachs thought they were committing treason against America when they made their fraudulent monies, but considering this sort of behavior’s effects on our economic system, they may be quite wrong if things were fairly and honestly dealt with by the US government and our legal system.

The firm is ‘going to fight’ the lawsuit, of couse, yet now, according to Bloomberg News, Britain and Germany are considering taking legal actions of their own against the ‘piled on’ global corporation who bet against both sides and ‘won’…yet imho, cheating isn’t ‘winning’, it’s stealing.

Yes, people do get really angry when big institutions turn out to be other-than-they-tout and massive losses are incurred, so I guess with Goldman Sachs, clients are closer to ‘last’ rather than being “first” as promoted in the firm’s advertising.

Perhaps a new advertising campaign will be needed to ‘pull the wool’ in the future as financial crisis rears its ugly head – but this time for a titan of Wall Street.

But as usual with anything political, it remains to be seen whether legal actions taken against such obvious fraud will amount to anything of value for the victims and thus for the economy as a whole.

In the end, the oft-repeated mantra “Crisis of Confidence on Wall Street” turns out to be fairly based on certain corporations’ lousy way of doing what they call ‘business’…so make that “in” Wall Street, the casino of dreams and busts, if there ever was one.

Scottish astrologer details firsthand airport closure from ash

Having recently been in touch with my friend, astrologer Anne Whitaker in Scotland, I knew she and her husband were about to take a trip to Devon to catch some rays. But thanks to airport closures from Iceland’s volcanic eruption causing downed flights, ash is all they caught.

Anne has a history with the Great Conjunctions of Jupiter and Uranus, two planets lining up now for their first conjunction (June 8th) at 00Ari18. Uranus at Aries Point places the disruptive planet in range of opposing earthy Saturn again, and Anne is in-the-know about Summer 2010’s Cardinal Cross and titanic T-Squares which involve her expertise, the Great Conjunctions of Jupiter and Uranus.

You might even apply to take part in a study she’s undertaking concerning Jupiter/Uranus, if you wish, so click to read Anne’s ‘ash report’ from the British Isles and find out what she and Ian did to counter their disappointment about switching destinations.

Personally, I think they made an excellent trade and I hope they manage to dodge ‘ash storm 2010′ altogether!

Fireballs and Volcanic Sunsets April 2010

This SpaceWeather Alert arrived a day late but here it is:

Space Weather News for April 15, 2010

MIDWESTERN FIREBALL: A brilliant fireball streaked across the USA on the evening of April 14, startling observers in Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri and surrounding states. Experts say it was a small asteroid, about a meter wide, that exploded in mid-air with an energy equivalent to some 20 tons of TNT.

National Weather Service radars detected the fireball’s debris trail, resulting in maps that could help guide meteorite hunters to fragments on the ground.

Pictures and more information may be found on today’s edition of SpaceWeather News.

VOLCANIC SUNSETS: A cloud of ash from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano is drifting across Europe this week and causing sunsets of surpassing beauty. Europeans are encouraged to look west at the end of the day.

Bonus: If you don’t live in Europe, look west anyway. Venus, Mercury and the crescent Moon are beaming through the twilight for all to see. Check SpaceWeather for pictures and sky maps.
