C117 Liberal’s voice, John Stuart Mill

John Stuart Mill was the most influential English language philosopher of the nineteenth century. He was logician, naturalist and an exponent of Utilitarianism. He was the foremost liberal who advocated for the delegate model of electoral rights and thus the consequences of John Locke’s empiricist (knowledge comes from experience) outlook.

C203 Claes Oldenburg the artful joker

Claes Oldenburg made gigantism his sculptural stock-in-trade.

Christos did it too, the difference was the former got underwriting from public while Claes worked for private organizations. Thus Christos in the end was more successful, though not nearly as long lasting — all of Christos work was ephemeral.

Spoonbridge and Cherry

Claes in partnership with his second wife, Coosjie van Bruggen, balanced a maraschino cherry on a spoon big enough to be a bridge in Minneapolis (1988), I picked that one out of all his big sculptures because it was the first I ever saw in the dark winter of Minneapolis at the Walker. I happened to be there in the coldest winter on record — well actually we tied the 1859 winter — and going to the Walker was the brightest thing I found while living there.

FDR Supreme Court Justice Frank Murphy

The dates on Supreme Court Justice Murphy are incorrect. William Francis Murphy was born on April 13th , 1890 not April 13, 1893 in Harbor Beach, Michigan to two Irish immigrants and devout Catholics. He got his law degree at the University of Michigan (LL.B., 1914) and, after serving in the first World War and held several elective posts in the 1920s.

His efforts to help the unemployed got President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s attention, who after Murphy finished his term as Mayor of Detroit (1930-1933) appointed him to the governor-general (1933–35) and then U.S. high commissioner (1935–36) in the Philippines, where he supported the independence movement.


Strong Liberal Credentials

Upon returning home, Murphy rose to governor of Michigan where again he got national attention for refusing to break the illegal sit-down strikes at Ford and GM auto companies. FDR applauded those actions, and he appointed him the United States Attorney General.

Once there, Murphy won further accolades for instituting the Civil Rights Unit (now a Division of the AG’s office). Finally in 1940 Murphy got an appointment on to the Federal Bench; but that did not last long as he died in 1949. He voted with Justices Owen Roberts and Robert Jackson against the majority opinion of Justices Black and Felix Frankfurter on interring Japanese residents into camps in California in the the Korematsu v. US case.

I dissent, therefore, from this legalization of racism. Racial discrimination in any form and in any degree has no justifiable part whatever in our democratic way of life. It is unattractive in any setting, but it is utterly revolting among a free people who have embraced the principles set forth in the Constitution of the United States. All residents of this nation are kin in some way by blood or culture to a foreign land. Yet they are primarily and necessarily a part of the new and distinct civilization of the United States. They must, accordingly, be treated at all times as the heirs of the American experiment, and as entitled to all the rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.”

Justice Frank Murphy, Korematsu vs. U.S.1

Murphy was among 12 nominated at the 1944 Democratic National Convention to serve as Roosevelt’s running mate in the presidential election that year. He acted as chairman of the National Committee against Nazi Persecution and Extermination of the Jews and of the Philippine War Relief Committee and established in early 1944 committee to promote rescue of European Jews, and to combat antisemitism in the United States.

Murphy died in his sleep at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit on July 19, 1949, of a coronary thrombosis. He was of 59 and was slated to get married the following month. Over 10,000 people attended his funeral in Detroit and is s buried in Our Lady of Lake Huron Catholic Cemetery in Sand Beach Township, Michigan, near Harbor Beach.

The third judicial court of Michigan is named in his honour.

Divining Congresswoman Frederica Wilson

Our header picture is Congresswoman Frederica Wilson with President Barack Obama.  She represents Florida’s 24th Congressional District since 2009, and won re-election handily in 2020.  In 2019 she was in the news over flak between her President Donald J. Trump over his phone calls to the families of  four fallen American soldiers from a Nigerian skirmish. 

This is not the first time she has come into the national spotlight for taking controversial stances. Previously she was a spokesman for the Trayvon Martin case against George Zimmerman. Her district covers  large swath of eastern Miami-Dade County and a sliver of southern Broward County. including Miami, portions of Opa-lockaNorth MiamiHollywood, and Miramar — all heavily black populated areas.

She has been a stalwart supporter of Barack Obama, and now Joe Biden since Obama announced his candidacy in 2008, well before she was in Congress.

Some Frederica facts

Representative Wilson was born on November 5, 1942 in Miami Beach, Dade County, Florida to first generation parents of Bahamian immigrants. She and her late husband, Paul, have three children, Paul, Lakesha and Nicole.

She graduated with a bachelor of arts from Fisk University, historically an all-black university in Nashville, Tennessee that is also the alma mater of New York Yankee, Derek Jeter, gospel singer, Mahalia Jackson, and Washington D.C. major, Marion Barry, Booker T. Washington and WEB DuBois. She continued her education at University of Miami for a master of arts degree, speciality unknown.

There is no time for Mrs. Wilson but we are advocating this chart based on the known facts of her life.


She introduced in July 2020, H.R. 6707 bill legislating Masks for all, a house bill supporting Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont’s Senate bill, requiring the federal government to use all available authorities, including the Defense Production Act, to eliminate all shortages of face masks, surgical masks, and N-95 respirators and distribute masks to the public as soon as possible.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg RIP


Ginsburg dies

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court and a pioneering advocate for women’s rights, died of complications from metastatic pancreas cancer on on Friday, Sept. 18, 2020. She was 87.

Ginsburg had announced in July that she was undergoing chemotherapy treatment for lesions on her liver, the latest of her several battles with cancer. President Bill Clinton appointed her to the bench following Sandra Day O’Connor’s retirement.

The justice, who was not known to be overtly religious, also coincidentally died on Rosh Hashanah, the start of the Jewish New Year. This comes from the Old Testament and the book of Leviticus 23:23-31. Because religious Jews count their days at sunsets, Rosh Hashanah started at sunset on Friday, 1 Tishrei, 5781 and ended two days later also at sunset on Sunday, Sept. 20 or 3 Tishrei 5781. Chabad.org, gives greater information this.

Buried in Arlington Nat’l

She will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia at a private service next week. While Madame Justice is not a military veteran, Ginsburg is eligible to be buried at the largely military cemetery., next to her husband, an Army veteran, who died in 2010. Thirteen Supreme Court justices are also buried in Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s backyard.

Our original post on Justice Ginsburg took Lois Rodden’s Pisces Ascendant which I found did not work with most of her life event’s as noted in her autobiography, so I rectified her 20 Taurus or the Hyperion Symbol of “Time Zones in a Foreign Country.”

Consideration of Time Zones

That symbol seems strange for a US Justice but she made her self clear more than once that she thought the American Constitution was outdated and biased and preferred the South African Constitution. At the time, the quote is above, she was clear that the American was too vague on its expectations from its citizens while the South African precisely states the rights and duties of its citizens, as well as defining the structure of its Government. That attitude strikes me as a rather fixed personality; it definitely is not the hallmark of a mutable who prefers things to be open and flexible to fit the times and needs of society.

The outer chart above is about the time when the Justice died. It has been hard to get an actual time so I settled on this one — the earliest I could find of a major national paper announcing her death. Based on the aspects between the two charts, I think she died earlier that morning; possibly around 8:30 am.

This last chart is her rectified natal.

Ginsburg’s natal chart has no interceptions; she stated clearly who she was and what she believed, something she had in common with President Trump, also a rising fixed (Leo) sign. She was agreat friends with politically opposite, Antonin Scalia.

Our condolences to her family, friends and admirers of whom there were many.

This was updated on Friday, September 25th with further information about RBG’s interment. There still is no mention of the day, though I imagine it is today, based on reports that President Trump will announce her replacement on Saturday and he has said he would wait until she was buried.

C196 Dithering John Durham

U.S. Attorney John Durham may wait until after the 2020 presidential election to make his conclusions public on the Ukraine-gate scandal because as his ascendant shows, Aries 30, he needs to get his ducks all set up in a row. This meticulousness borders on procrastination and indecision — aka who can he afford to hurt more — is further shown by Venus in Aquarius in the tenth house — a constant gathering of information, and data so that his decisions and career remain unimpeachable.

John Henry Durham was born on March 16th 1950 in Boston and went the liberal arts college Colgate University in New York State and then Univ of Connecticut for his law degree after which he was a VISTA (a JFK created service organization i.e. Volunteers in Service of America) volunteer for two years (1975–1977) on the Crow Indian Reservation in Montana. He is a Red Sox fan and his wife Susan and he live in Groton, where his alma mater also is located.

Stoolie’s and the Law

Durham has no planets in either their rulership or exaltation. He great talent in networking well (the eleventh house preponderance) and is sympathetic to those who wield power (Mercury to Midheaven) but it is his ability to resort to dodgy tactics to trap (or entrap) his victim (Mercury opposition Saturn in the creative 5th house) through the use of informants that makes him a prosecutor that is hard to beat.

Durham’s use of stoolies was so renown in the Whitey Bulger case that Martin Scorsese made it a movie starring Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg & Leonardo DiCaprio called “The Departed.” 1 Spoiler: Jack Nicholson plays Whitey in the movie and does a superb, if not unnerving, job. The main informants are Matt Damon, and Leonardo DiCaprio, though there are many others, known and unknown throughout the movie, making it a series of interconnected jigsaw puzzles .

While Durham’s methods may have been surprising, they were effective and Whitey Bulger, himself an FBI informant, was apprehended. The press hailed Durham as a hero for busting Bulger and President Clinton made him the U.S. Attorney General for the District of Connecticut.

Durham’s ascendant is opposite AG Barr’s and square President Trump’s.

This, and a few other high profile cases, led Attorney General William Barr tp picking John Durham to conduct an inquiry into the origins and conduct of the Trump-Russia investigation. Durham has recently said that he may wait until after November to reveal what he has found or to hand down indictments, according to sources cited by Fox News.

A source close to Durham said that he “does not want this seen as political” while Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and a longtime critic of the Trump-Russia investigations, warned waiting until after November’s contest might be too late and affect the election adversely. — the Washington Examiner. We argue that because of his over-cautious method he made dribble out convictions and leave the biggest when it counts least.

I updated this article on 1 September 2020 to reflect missing aspects and the latest news.

On August 14, 2020, Durham filed the first charge of his criminal inquiry against the primary FBI attorney assigned to provide legal support to the special counsel team led by Robert Mueller; this does not look too good for Mueller, but chances are it will not be making many headlines either.

No Name Maddox is Charles Manson

Young Charlie


            A boy with NO NAME



His mother, Kathleen Maddox, is often described as being a prostitute. According to Mr. Bugliosi’s book, Helter Skelter: the True Account of the Manson Murders, she was a heavy drinker who lived on the margins of society with a series of men.

Thus Manson never knew his biological father, if even Kathleen remembered his name.   She often disappeared for long periods — when Charles was 5, for instance, she was sent to prison for robbing a gas station — leaving him to bounce among relatives in Ohio, West Virginia, and Kentucky. When she was paroled, Charles was 8 and she took him back,  but kept him for only a few years.  At some point she married William Manson, and it was from him he got the name that has become emblazoned in American pop culture:  Charles Manson.

                     The prison finale

On Sunday on November 19, 2017 a week after his 83rd birthday in a hospital in Kern County, Calif., north of Los Angeles, Manson died.  Unrepentant, bitter and angry, he has been behind bars for most of his life.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation announced his death in a news release. Under federal and state privacy regulations, they gave no cause but had been  hospitalized in January for intestinal bleeding.  Surgery was recommended, but Manson was ruled too frail to undergo it..

Mr. Manson was a semiliterate habitual criminal and failed musician before he came to irrevocable attention in the late 1960s as the wild-eyed leader of the Manson family, a murderous band of young drifters in California. Convicted of nine murders in all, he was known in particular for the seven brutal killings collectively called the Tate-La Bianca murders, committed by his followers on two consecutive August nights in 1969.

                  Killing Spree

Sharon Tate being carried out of the house

Shortly after midnight on Aug. 9, 1969 Susan Denise Atkins aka Sadie Mae Glutz, Patricia Dianne Krenwinkel aka Marnie Reeves and Charles Denton Watson aka Tex, entered the house at 10050 Cielo Drive, Bel Air, a wealthy suburb of Los Angeles where Sharon Marie Tate, age 26, and her husband Roman Polanski, 33, lived.  Tate was heavily pregnant and due at the end of August. 


Linda Drouin Kasabian waited outside. Through a frenzied combination of shooting, stabbing, beating and hanging, they murdered Ms. Tate and four others in the house and on the grounds:
  • Jay Sebring, a nom de plume, age 35 was a Hollywood hairdresser and a good friend of actor Steve McQueen.  Sebring, his professional name, had also been Mrs. Polanski’s former lover. 
  • Abigail Folger, age 25, an heiress to the A. J. Folger coffee fortune;
  • Voytek (also spelled Wojciech) Frykowski, age 32 Ms. Folger’s boyfriend and a friend of Polanski’s from Poland.
    • They had been house sitters while the Polanskis were in Europe
  • and Steven Earl Parent, an 18-year-old visitor.

Ms. Tate’s husband, Mr. Polanski, was in London at the time scouting for his next film, the Day of the Dolphin.  His business manager, William Tennant, called to tell him the news.

Before leaving, Ms. Atkins scrawled the word “PIG” in blood on the front door of the house, reminiscent of the Passover blood in Exodus that marked the Egyptians for doom and saved the Hebrews, and then tasted it in some mockery of Holy Communion.  There had been no sexual molestation on the bodies but plenty of stab wounds.  In Mr. Manson’s peculiar logic, the killings, the police said it was more like a massacre there was so much blood on the premises, were supposed to look like the work of black militants.  Nothing was stolen, but lots of victims drug paraphernalia abounded.

The next night, Aug. 10, Mr. Manson and a half-dozen followers drove to a Los Angeles house he appeared to have selected at random. Inside, Mr. Manson tied up the residents — a wealthy grocer named Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary — before leaving. After he was gone, several family members stabbed the couple to death. The phrases “Death to Pigs” and “Healter Skelter,” misspelled in a perverse pun of HELL and HEAL, were scrawled in blood at the scene.


The seven murders went unsolved for months, during which Polanski thought Bruce Lee had done it. Then, in the autumn of 1969, the police closed in on the Manson family after Ms. Atkins, jailed on an unrelated murder charge, bragged to cellmates about the killings, and how she had stabbed Sharon Tate multiple times.

On June 15, 1970, Mr. Manson, Ms. Atkins, Ms. Krenwinkel and a fourth family member, Leslie Van Houten, went on trial for murder. Linda  Kasabian, who had been present on both nights said she had not participated in the killings, became the prosecution’s star witness and was given immunity. Mr. Watson, who had fled to Texas, was tried and convicted separately.

During the trial, the bizarre became routine. On one occasion, Mr. Manson lunged at the judge with a pencil. On another, he punched his lawyer in open court. Then  Manson appeared in court with an “X” carved into his forehead; his co-defendants quickly followed suit. Mr. Manson later carved the X into a swastika, which remained flagrantly visible ever after.

Outside the courthouse, a small flock of chanting family members, as the cult called themselves, kept vigil. One of them, Lynette Fromme, nicknamed Squeaky, became their spokesman and the new head of the family.  Later in 1975,  after Manson et alia were convicted, she tried to assassinate President Gerald R. Ford in a wild devotional act to show Manson that while he was not physically present; he was still very much a spiritual and romantic force in her life.

            No Sense Makes Sense¹

On Jan. 25, 1971, after nine days’ deliberation, the jury found Mr. Manson, Ms. Atkins and Ms. Krenwinkel guilty of seven counts of murder each. Van Houten, who had been present only at the LaBianca murders, was found guilty of two counts. All four were also convicted of conspiracy to commit murder.

On March 29, the jury voted to give all four defendants the death penalty, but in 1972, California outlawed capital punishment and their sentences were reduced to life in prison.

Patricia Krenwinkel, left, and Susan Atkins, center, guilty of seven counts of murder each. Leslie Van Houten, right, was found guilty of two counts.  Years later, they admitted they were entranced by Charlie and totally addicted to acid, an extremely potent hallucinogenic.

Mr. Manson was convicted separately of two other murders: Gary Hinman, a musician killed by Manson family members in late July 1969 who had wanted to join the family,  and Donald Shea, a Barker Ranch stuntman killed late that August. This later death gets no publicity, and so why or how he was murdered is unknown.  Nonetheless, Mr. Manson and seven family members, six women and Tex Watson, were eventually convicted of one to nine murders apiece, but California never tried many others members as an accessory after the fact, and remained free disappearing in the San Francisco haze.

Incarcerated in a series of prisons over the years, Mr. Manson passed the time by playing the guitar, doing menial chores and making scorpions and spiders out of thread from his socks. His notoriety made him a target: In 1984, he was treated for second- and third-degree burns after being doused with paint thinner by a fellow inmate and set ablaze.

Mr. Manson was turned down for parole a dozen times, most recently in 2012. Most of the other convicted family members remain in prison. Ms. Atkins died in prison in 2009, at 61, of natural causes.  Squeaky lives outside of Syracuse, New York, having been paroled by federal parole commission after just 34 years.


                             Manson denies it all

To the end of his life, Mr. Manson denied having ordered the Tate-LaBianca murders. Nor, as he replied to a question he was often asked, did he feel remorse.

from the above 1986 prison interview with television journalist Charlie Rose

“So you didn’t care?” Mr. Rose asked, invoking Ms. Tate and her unborn child.

“Care?” Mr. Manson replied. He added, “What the hell does that mean, ‘care’?”

Charles Manson and Charlie Rose

I supposed Rose could have cited the 1828 Webster’s Dictionary and told him “CARE or Concern; anxiety; solicitude for another.”  But I doubt that would have mattered either.


Mapping No Name 


Charles Manson has an ascendant of 06 Taurus or the Hyperion symbol of a “pride of lions on the veldt, ” highlighting his capacity for organization. He has some rather interesting fixed stars that support that idea, like the fixed star Unukalhai whose aspect is akin to the marriage of Saturn and Mars and gives the individual a boldness and fierce nature conjunct his Sun at 19 Scorpio 50.  Alas Unukalhai also emphasizes a cruel nature and shows up heavily in criminals.

Charles-manson’s birthchart

The other fixed star, Albireo,  is conjunct his Moon at 04 Aquarius 00 and thus also conjunct his Midheaven, though wide, making him sexually appealing and alluring to women, while charismatic to men. That could explain how a man 5’2 had such a Svengali effect on his “family.”  

Geometrically though, it’s hard not to notice that his planets gather into small groups and have little relationship with anything else except that overarching Grand Square that dominates his chart.  Starting with Uranus in Aries, we go counterclockwise to Pluto in the fourth.  Another ninety degrees and we just get Mercury in the seventh house but in Scorpio and so out of quadrature but within orb.  Finally, we go the last ninety degrees and get to the Moon in Aquarius in the tenth.  As we do notice the squares are also the groups, Uranus and the Ascendant, Pluto and the Part of Fortune, Mercury and Jupiter and finally Moon and the Midheaven.  This makes the outside five, those not connected, striking in themselves, because each planet is paired but for Saturn, which gets paired in its own distorted way with its essential rulership in Aquarius.

Another way to view his chart is almost two grand squares competing for prominence, one cardinal and the other fixed highlighting his Svengali allure and then the fixed, his mental instability.  Then we look at his chart again, and everything is off, a bit skewed from normal, with the exact orbs all to minor points and parts, and that’s when you realize his chart is like Manson himself — distorted and dangerous.

No matter which of the methods you used to view’s Manson’s chart, Pluto in Cancer in the fourth is indicative of the hippie generation who created new “families” for themselves where they felt more comfortable and nourished. For Charlie because that Pluto right on the cusp of a fourth house of the father figure he never had, its trine to both Venus and the Sun make all women into caricatures of his mother, with Mary Theresa Brunner aka Mother Mary,  as mother of his son, had almost a deific position in the group and was most akin to his own mother, Kathleen with the rest of girls like a lair at his disposable. 

While the pack may not have physically slept with Charlie, they were all by their own accounts in love with him and “totally bought into the idea” he was the living god.  Thus, as Uranus 28 Aries conjunct his Taurean ascendant had made Charlie believe in his own deluded exaltation of himself as god, “his women” agreed, metamorphosed by his tenacious self-belief that was skewed by the myopia of drug induced dreams where the family morphed into a lion with his pride.

Adam B. Schiff in the News

                           The making of Adam Schiff

Adam Schiff was born on 22nd of June 1960 in Framingham, Massachusetts, United States to Edward and Sherrill Ann (nee Glovsky) Schiff, both raised Orthodox, Jews. They raised their own sons in a looser strain. Politically though they were a mixed marriage — she was a staunch Republican and he a New Deal democrat .Rep. Schiff is proud of that and credits his parents’ differences for his own ” his own moderate politics.” (in an interview with the Bezos-owned Washington Post).

Besides differences in politics, Schiff’s mother’s family emigrated from Russia during the 1890 pogroms to Laconia, New Hampshire, while this father’s side is from Vilnius Lithuania, their arrival date is unknown.  When Adam was 10 and his brother Dan 12,  the family left Framingham and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona.  Later that year, the Schiffs moved again this time to Alamo, California, where his father purchased a lumber yard.

Adam became bar mitzvah at Temple Isaiah in nearby  LaFayette in 1973.  His older brother Daniel Mark is a financial planner in Silicon Valley’s tony San Jose.  There both boys attended Monte Vista High School in Danville, California and then to Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, where originally he was pre-med but bombed out and then turned to political science where he received his Bachelor of Science degree.  He went to Harvard for his law degree.

Rep. Schiff has not discussed these geographical changes nor any of his childhood, so most of this is from public records, we have discovered showing 




                                       Adam and Eve

He married Eve Marion Anderson Schiff ( who he met on a tennis court in Marina del Rey 1990. I married them on February 19, 1995, after her conversion to Judaism (she was raised Roman Catholic). They have two children, Alexandra and Elijah.

Despite that, the venerable LA Times reports his marriage is a cover for his gay lifestyle. In doing Schiff’s biography,  it is remarkable how well he is at covering his past (see the other article below on Robin Schiff marrying Soros’s son) though some things have got through, and overall we at Celestiology have noticed that many Democrats and Republicans had little information on their life when they first got into public office, but as time went on more and more came to light. 


                               Mother Schiff’s  obituary 

Schiff, Sherrill Ann, 75, of Boca Raton passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 2, 2008. The beloved wife of Edward for 52 wonderful blessed years and the loving mother of Daniel M. Schiff and U.S. Congressman Adam B. Schiff.

Sherry’s blessings include her daughters-in-law, Amy Sporer Schiff, and Eve Sanderson Schiff. Her grandchildren, Rachel, Frank, Alexandra and Elijah Schiff were the delight of her life.

Burton Glovsky of Wellington is her brother.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday morning July 6th at 10 AM at the Rubin Memorial Chapel at 7340 Boynton Beach Blvd., Boynton Beach, FL.

Shiva will be held on Sunday, July 6th & Monday, July 9th at the Schiff’s home at 2176 NW 62nd Drive, Broken Sound, Boca Raton.

Sherrill Schiff’s Obituary


                    Schiff the Soviet Hawk

After graduation, Adam worked at the Los Angeles branch of the U.S. Attorney’s Office as a prosecutor, but it was his prosecution of Richard Miller, a former FBI agent who was convicted of passing secret documents to the Soviet Union in return for $65,000 in gold and cash, that made him perceived as an anti-Soviet hawk even though it took three times to get Miller convicted; the first two attempts failed [fmn] The first trial ended as a mistrial.  The second ended in a guilty verdict for Miller, but was overturned because it allowed polygraphic evidence the 9th Circuit frowns upon, so was overturned. [/fmn]

In 1996, he got elected to California’s 21st State Senate district after 2 previous unsuccessful forays. In 2015, he supported the Saudi Arabia-led intervention in Yemen. He also introduced bipartisan legislation to repeal the  2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists, which  forms the legal basis for the majority of U.S. military action in the Middle East.  The AUMF, as it is called in typical DC lingo, authorize the president  “to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons.”

Congressman Schiff came to Congress with President Obama as a staunch supporter of the President.  Majority leader Nancy Pelosi has time and time again reaffirmed that Adam Schiff is a lynchpin to Democratic integrity.


A mockingbird in Spring

 We rectified his chart to a 29 Gemini Rising, the first mockingbird in Spring — a desire to rise above his station which makes sense as this chart is very ambitious and we believe that the Congressman would like to be the first Jewish President.

With a Grand Trine in Earth, Representative Schiff is a locomotive temperament, with a lead planet in Mars at 01 Taurus 28, a “brilliant electrical display” showing how much he likes to showboat political campaigns that bring him into the limelight.  We see this with his persecution of President Trump in the alleged Soviet hoax that piggybacked upon his prosecution history with FBI agent Richard Miller, making him look like not only an insider to understanding Soviet politics but also a strong anti-Communist Democrat.

He has a heavy preponderance in the first house with his ascendant wedged in between his Moon and Venus highlighting how much of what he does is for his own personal gain, particularly as Venus and the Sun are sextil Mars.

Mars is a strong focal determinator for Schiff, with only Saturn and Mercury not in aspect directly, but both via translations of light, make his whole chart keyed to that planet.  It is obviously raison d’etre, but also such a strong force that is never offset, his Achilles heel.

                     Schiff on the 2nd Impeachment of President Trump



               Schiff and Soros?

Melissa Robin Schiff, the daughter of Marlene S. Schiff of New York and the late Dr. Haskel Schiff of Lake Grove, Long Island, married May 5, 1992 to Robert Daniel Soros, a son of Annaliese Soros and George Soros, both of New York.

Mrs. Soros, 28 years old, graduated from New York University. She is a freelance photographer and filmmaker in New York.

Mr. Soros, also 28 and an N.Y.U. graduate, is an investor in New York. His stepmother, Susan W. Soros, is the director of the Bard College Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts.

His father is the chairman of Soros Fund Management in New York. He is the founder of the Central European University in Prague, and a network of foundations in Eastern Europe.


[cont’d] Her father was a renal specialist at the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C and mother is currently the chairwoman of the advisory board of the entrepreneurial center at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (where President Trump graduated and received a MBA).  Rabbi Dr. David Posner performed the ceremony at Temple Emanu-El in New York.

from the wedding section of the New York Times.
P.S. After 22 years of marriage, the Soros’s divorced.

While often cited that Melissa and Adam are brother & sister, that is impossible based on his mother’s obit . They could be relations, but there is no proof of that either.  Obviously they are kindred spirits. If you can supply further information, we will gladly vet it. Thanks.



2.   Svetlana Ogorodnikov, who is being tried on charges that she recruited an F.B.I. agent to spy for the Soviet Union, burst into tears in court today when another former F.B.I. agent testified that she had invited him to have sex. ‘

‘Why you lie – liar!”  she cried  (quite a good actress isn’t she?) interrupting the testimony of the former agent, John E. Hunt, who had been describing a dinner meeting he had with her in June 1982.

Mrs. Ogorodnikov, age 34,  is being tried with her husband, Nikolai, on charges that they conspired with Richard W. Miller, who was then an F.B.I. agent, to pass classified documents to the Soviet Union.   She contends in court papers  her activities with F.B.I. agents had been in connection with her role as an F.B.I. informer.
