"Fascism should rightly be called Corporatism as it is a merge of state and corporate power." -- Benito Mussolini

Picasso's "Guernica"

"Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ...Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger." --Hermann Goering, Nazi leader, at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II

Federal Grand Jury Indicts Martha Stewart

So how come "Kenny Boy" Lay and the other White Guys Like Bush-Harken, Cheney-Halliburton, and Bernie Ebbers-WorldCrimes Aren't Under Indictment? Could it Be That the White Boys in the Justice Department Like Ashcroft Hate It That A Girl Who Makes Doilies & Muffins Beat Them At Their Own Game? -- Starcats

Associated Press "NEW YORK - A grand jury indicted Martha Stewarton federal charges of securities fraud and obstruction of justice Wednesday in an insider stock trading scandal that could bring big fines or even a jail term for the home styles guru known for impeccable taste."

"A 41-page indictment also charged Stewart with conspiracy and making false statements. Stewart's stockbroker, Peter Bacanovic, was charged with perjury and obstruction of justice. Stewart, 61, has denied wrongdoing in her December 2001 sale of shares of the biotech drug maker ImClone Systems Inc."

"Stewart faces up to 30 years in prison and $2 million in fines if convicted on all counts, although the sentence would likely be much less under federal guidelines.

"The criminal indictment says Stewart unloaded her shares of ImClone based on illegal inside knowledge that the family of ImClone founder Samuel Waksal was planning to sell its shares ahead of the government news.

"Stewart went so far as to delete a computer log of a phone message in which Bacanovic told her he thought ImClone was "going to start trading downward," according to the indictment.

"The government also said Bacanovic altered his personal notes about Stewart's portfolio after he learned the government was investigating her, trying to create the impression he and Stewart had a prior agreement to sell ImClone if it fell below $60 a share.

"The charges spell not just serious legal headaches for Stewart, but a crisis for her company, Martha Stewart Omnimedia, which has struggled with a publicity nightmare since she first became embroiled in the stock scandal a year ago."

Martha Stewart Biwheel w/Today's Transits

(See Starcats' Martha Stewart, Newsmakers, June 26, 2002 for background on the case.)

The Leo Moon, ruler of Martha's 9th house of lawsuits, crossed her "indictment" Mercury (25 Cancer, 6/2/03), sextiled her 11th house "Neptune of fraud at the hands of networking pals" (Sam Waksal/ImClone), and made a fateful quincunx to Martha's 2nd house (personal finances/portfolio worth) Sagittarius Moon.

Pluto of "Plutocracy/Plutolatry" is making an epic 14 year sojourn through Martha's money house (aligned with the USA's Ascendant), and makes a wide conjunction to Martha's Moon and a t-square to Martha's Neptune and her lunar nodes her 11th and 5th houses. (The 5th house is associated with gambling and the stock market. The 11th house is also related because it speaks of "futures.").

The trigger planet for Martha is Mars's transit through her Aquarian 4th house. As you can see from the biwheel chart, Mars in in square to Martha's natal 7th house Saturn at 27 Taurus, conjunct Caput Algol, the most unfortunate of fixed stars, and her natal Uranus conjunct Alcyone, the second of the most unfortunate of fixed stars. Since the 4th house is property, one's domicile and the foundation of life, the 4th house square to the 7th house can be viewed in horary and event astrology as the place to which a challenged Mars is forced to move (the 7th house is the 4th house of the 4th house!). Martha may be out of bail at present, but will she be ultimately be forced to "move to a jail cell?"

Martha's 7th house Uranus (associated with the savagery surrounding her divorce and also "divorce" from Time-Warner) is also conjoined to the transiting North Lunar Node on Alcyone. Martha's natal Uranus now impacted by Mars is the explosion (Mars-Uranus contacts are the formula for explosions whether of grief as in this case, or of bombs) of grief at losing the basis of a life foundation (Mars in the 4th house in square to Uranus) and her "fortunate" (Taurus-Empress card in the Tarot Deck) reputation with the mainstream. Martha is the 4th house. Her innovations (Aquarius) into decorating and cooking spawned an empire that rivals that of Oprah Winfrey (another billionaire diva) and far surpasses the wealth portfolios of her fat white boy critics in the Justice Department or at the SEC.

We'll have to check fat boy Lou Dobbs Money Line on CNN this evening to see if he adds Martha Stewart to his "Corporate Indictment Scoreboard" and find out what loud boy Rush Limbaugh has to say about it. It will be interesting to see which side the guys line up on. If Kenny Boy gets a pass, it is doubtful that they'll hold the same safety net under "that BITCH Martha Stewart." Ashcroft and the SEC (filled with Bush cronies) intends to make Stewart his poster child for fraud; as a tool for punishing all those damned hardworking, abortion-getting witches that have undermined the purity of the white man's American Dream.

Neptune is opposing Martha's 9th house Sun making her the Justice Deparment's "choice for sacrifice." The Domestic Diva's Sun is also impacted by transiting Jupiter, and the combination points loudly to trumped-up charges. Martha is the chosen sacrifice. The Bush administration has control over all three branches of government as of the mid-term elections of 2002. "Justice," as seen through Ashcroft's draconic visions, resembles Henry VIII's Star Chamber. Once called means you are guilty. Caput Algol (26 Taurus, the death of Kings) Ye are sentenced to beheading!

June 4, 2003, Martha Stewart, grand jury indictment, Newsmakers.

The timing of this indictment is troubling. Notice how quickly Ashcroft's Justice Department is moving on this -- at the same time the media begins to question Bush, Rumsfeld and the Neocons at the Pentagon on the legitimacy of its reasons for invading Iraq. Where are the WMD's? How do they intend to resolve the fact that evidentiary documents were fraudulent? And what about Iraq itself? Has it now been made ripe for a radical Islamic government? Does the entire region teeter on the brink of massive destablization? -- Starcats
