Tuesday June 16, 2009: Sources are reporting that tens of thousands of demonstrators are in Tehran’s streets today in opposition to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s “landslide” re-election on Friday, June 12, 2009.
Amazing that millions of votes could be counted By Hand within just a few hours after Friday’s polls closed! Speed math?
And I believe it was CBS’ Craig Ferguson last evening who said that Ahmadinejad had won…in Florida.
Well, besides America, it’s outrage all around as audacity abounds in the European parliament as it plans to tap EU taxpayers in order to shore up their – the politicians’ – ailing pension funds.
No word on whose funds will be ‘tapped’ to shore up the peoples’ wiped out pension funds.
Guess all the politicians’ previous pocket-lining deserves cushy pensions while the ones who worked and paid taxes – only to have them ‘tapped’ aka stolen – are to be left out in the cold.
The power elite’s enablers do seem to be intent on riling up the people and getting them into the streets, don’t they?
Saving AfPak is a priority of the Obama administration, and for everyone’s sake we should hope that someone manages to keep the lid on this particular powder keg.
With the Winter Games of 2014 planned for Sochi, construction delays, homeowner protests, and the economic downturn have so far proven to be obstacles on the path of fulfilling Russia’s wintry Olympic dreams:
Update Tuesday Mar 3: no news on 2014′s Winter Games but we’ve had some winter games of our own in the southeastern US. Sleet, snow, ice causing outages so I’ve been unpowered since Sunday, early evening.
Ahh, electricity! It’s good to see in the dark again, but am far behind in the practical areas of life, if you know what I mean. Yet it was the loveliest snowfall I’ve seen in years that dusted us, leaf and limb, on Sunday afternoon.
But as usual with the fluff stuff, the clean-up complicates everything for a while but must be tended to, plus all the things you couldn’t do without electrical power now accuse you silently from the hamper.
One of our neighbors had a transformer catch fire near his driveway when a pine tree fell on it during the storm. (The transformer, not the driveway.)
The fire burned itself out with a volunteer fireman arriving 5 minutes past the crisis.
Fire in ice with large snowflakes falling – quite a sparkly sight!

An article by Andrew Nagorski caught my eye concerning Sean McMeekin’s book, ‘History’s Greatest Heist: the Looting of Russia by the Bolsheviks’ which tells in harrowing detail the rise of the Bolsheviks in Russia, their plundering of the country to finance their power-grabbing plans, and the institution of Communism.
The story reminds me of Bush’s current looting of America especially considering the Sabian Symbol for George Bush’s Ascendant degree, ’8 Leo’…
“A Bolshevik Propagandist.”
(‘Sabian Symbols in Astrology’ Marc Edmund Jones.)
By 1917, a bottomless pit had opened under the lives, power, and wealth of Europe and when US President Woodrow Wilson tipped the balance by entering the formerly neutral America into the fray, war was declared on the Central Powers (now Germany, Austria-Hungary, Turkey and Bulgaria.)
Wilson called it the “war to end all wars’”(not) and said it would “make the world safe for democracy” which is a promise war never fulfills. In fact, WWI was the seed for the wars that have followed. Well, at least those were Wilson’s public justifications for taking America to war – sound familiar yet?
And when the transiting South Node, a separative point of neurotic behavior, reached ’8Leo’ the Solar Eclipse of Feb 3, 1916 manifested as a catastrophic Total Eclipse in Aquarius (13:30) – conj disaster-prone Uranus and opposing warring instigator Mars.
This Eclipse marks the outbreak of the Battle of Verdun on Feb 21, and is in the 8 North Series (‘new-found inspiration; prophetic dreams; visions.’ -Brady; last occurred: Mar 29, 2006, ’9Ari.’)
And a Great Conjunction of Saturn-Pluto had kicked off the loss, hardship, and cruelty in 1914-15:
1. Oct 4, 1914; 2Can14:
2. Nov 1, 1914; 2Can04
3. May 19, 1915; 00Can54, a World Point where major events tend to occur which affect large numbers of the world’s population.
Plus, 2 to 3 Cancer is conj US natal Venus, as you notice.
So the rise of the Bolsheviks and other dictatorships indicates that the world wasn’t rendered “safe for democracy” after all, and as diplomatic Jupiter met with idealistic Neptune (as they will again 3x in 2009), the planet’s hope for peace resided with the League of Nations, a Jupiter-Neptune entity, as is the United Nations, founded in 1945.
(Jupiter conjuncted Neptune on Sept 22, 1945 at 5Lib54, which is the degree of George Bush’s natal Neptune, btw.)
This implies that 2009′s three conjunctions of the speculator/wastrel pair, Jupiter-Neptune, will bring the UN up for more attention and use in spite of their past “peacekeeper” problems (raping, robbing, and evicting those they were supposedly sent to protect.)
Hopefully, you will not let a little Astrology as given herein dissuade you from reading Nagorski’s article for you may gain insight into what Bush-Paulson & Co have been up to and how – as if you hadn’t noticed already!
Then there’s the story of Bush’s grandpa diverting millions in gold to Germany to aid Hitler’s rise to power in the 1930s – but that must be a tale for another post.
Ron Paul: No Such Thing as an Independent Israel
By Jihan Hafiz
I don’t think there is such a thing as an independent Israel doing anything,because I think no matter what they do it’s our money, it’s our weapons, and they’re not going to do it without us approving it and if they get into trouble we’re going to bail them out, so there is no separation between the two.
This post is being filed under ‘Saturn-Uranus’ because their ongoing opposition, the ‘Full Moon’ phase of their cycle which began in 1988, is culminating with the oppression and aggression being perpetrated and suffered in Gaza prior to Barack Obama’s taking office.
So you know who in America THAT implicates. Of course, Obama could be glad the offensive is being executed before he takes the reins, who knows?
He May Be Only Your Half-Brother But You’re Still Your Brother’s Keeper – Wouldn’t Your Father Want It So?
Well, is the current blow-up of retaliation and mayhem between Israel and Palestine the best mankind can offer his fellow man?
This is IT?
Here in America we’ve been so attentive to our November elections, it’s easy to forget that Russian troops remain in Georgia. And no, we have no room to talk thanks to war-loving neocons that coup’ed our government and invaded Iraq.
But that doesn’t make things any better for the good people of Georgia:
I’d call it power politics with the innocent caught in between.
If you’re interested, here’s a link to a freshly published Page concerning the Winter Solstice of 2012 which has received much press already due to its significance in the Mayan Calendar. You’ll find an image of the Solstice chart - set for Washington, DC, the White House – with some info on Fixed Stars, apex Jupiter Rx in a YOD pattern, and other details included:
