Blue Dog Days

Wow! Lot of excitement, a lot of passion in the health care debate! Folks are up in arms, people waving guns around, yelling and screaming. Weird, wacky stuff.

But it wasn't supposed to work out this way, can you believe it? It turns out that all of this excitement is on account of a group of Democrats in Congress with a nutty nickname. Read on...

Blue Dogs have their day:
As Congress' summer recess continues to produce town hall after town hall of screaming protesters and organised chaos, it's not hard to see why Barack Obama wanted to get healthcare reform finished by the end of July. Nothing like sending a batch of already paranoid members of Congress back to their districts, only to have their worst fears echoed in the voices of an angry mob.
Thank the Blue Dogs. Before the healthcare debate, the coalition of conservative Democrats were a relatively obscure group to most Americans. But when they stalled the House energy and commerce committee's markup of the healthcare bill, the Blue Dogs emerged in the front of our political conscience.
Wow! That's really interesting because we're hearing about these "Blue Dogs" a lot. It seems these "Blue Dogs" are a "Major issue" this summer! They certainly have Star quality- every time you turn around they're at the top of the headlines...

GOP, Dems Battle Over Blue Dog Districts:

Moderate Democrats are at the epicenter of the controversy and anger over health care reform, and both Democrats and Republicans are attempting to control the situation. House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) has created a memo detailing the negative impacts of health care reform in each Blue Dog district.
California's Blue Dogs Emerging as Key Players in Health Care Reform:

Democratic California representatives in the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Coalition could play a decisive role in shaping national health care reform legislation, Capitol Weekly reports.

California has seven Blue Dogs in the 52-member coalition, more than any other state.

'Blue Dog' Vote Pivotal in Passage of Health Care Reform Bill:
The moderate "Blue Dog" Democrats are calling for provisions to ensure that the government's plan is affordable for small businesses and are insisting on a negotiated rate for any government-run health plan that would compete with private insurance.
Or this:

"We would have like to have passed a bill through the House by Friday," House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland said after meeting with the conservatives, known as "Blue Dogs."

You know, ain't it just the dog-gonest coincidence that this health care brouhaha just happened to be delayed until the heart of the "Dog Days" by the "Blue Dogs?" Ain't that just a kicker? Ain't it just a kick that the debate "heats up" during this time of year?

Wait- what are the "Dog Days," you ask?

The phrase Dog Days or "the dog days of summer", Latin: Caniculae, Caniculares dies, refers to the hottest, most sultry days of summer. In the northern hemisphere they usually fall between early July and early September whilst in the Southern hemisphere they are usually between January and early March. The actual dates vary greatly from region to region, depending on latitude and climate. Dog Days can also define a time period or event that is very hot or stagnant, or marked by dull lack of progress.

And where did the name "Dog Days" come from? Read this:

In the summer, however, Sirius, the "dog star," rises and sets with the sun. During late July Sirius is in conjunction with the sun, and the ancients believed that its heat added to the heat of the sun, creating a stretch of hot and sultry weather. They named this period of time, from 20 days before the conjunction to 20 days after, "dog days" after the dog star.

Wow, that's amazing. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't we just spend a lot of time on this blog puzzling over the whole Sirius thing vis a vis the 2008 Presidential Election and its aftermath? And here we are in the Dog Days, and there's all this "Blue Dog" zaniness in the news! Go figure! But wait, there's more- Sirius isn't only the Dog Star, it's the Blue Star as well!

It's the 13th as I write, and this week has been the most "contentious" week of the Barackobamun Administration so far. And wouldn't you just know it- this was also the week of the Contendings of Horus and Set in the Egyptian Festival Calendar! Man, these coincidences can get downright crazy sometimes!

And what was Set's big pitch before the gods as to his worthiness for the throne, you may ask?

Seth boasts of his strength and says that only he is the one who can slay Apophis, the enemy of Re, every day from the prow of the sunboat.

Apophis? Where did that come from? Man, one thing's for sure- we didn't hear anything about Apophis this week! No, that would really be stretching it! Am I right or am I right?

Oh, wait a minute....

This was in the papers Wednesday:

Nasa does not have enough money to spot incoming asteroids as they plummet towards earth, it has been warned.

Astronomers are watching a 430-feet diameter rock that has a 1-in-3,000 chance of hitting Earth in 2048 and a much-talked about asteroid, Apophis, which is twice that size and has a 1-in-43,000 chance of hitting in 2036, 2037 or 2069.
You know what is so wacky? This week, the media chose to focus on a guy that showed up at an Barackobamun rally packing heat and carrying a vaguely-threatening poster of a coiled snake! Did I mention that Apophis was usually depicted as a coiled snake?

Zam! Pow! Zowie! Will wonders never cease?

Today we also see this headline: "Obama Still Committed To Working With Grassley." That's referring to Chuck Grassley (born 9/17), the powerful Iowa senator who's also a prominent member of The Family, Washington's most powerful secret society.

  3. synchro or not just red this about how gets sirius red-white-blue

  4. sorry the link

  5. Sorry Mr. Abdullah,
    But I'd say the evidence is overwhelming that Islam
    is nothing but cruel hoax perpetrated by the Vatican. All you have to do is look at the dates, means used and goals achieved by Muhammad. To see how nicely it all played out for the Vatican. I'm sorry but the three major religions. Seem like nothing more than A circular argument given to the people of the world to keep them busy. Because the only thing anyone truly knows about Christianity, Islam and Judaism and blind faith. Is their staggering history of violence perpetrated on the people of earth in the name of god's love. Divide and conqueror it's one of the most important rules in the art of war. But Mr. Abdullah I mean no offense to you personally about your religion. Because if it gets you through the day in this crazy ass world more power to you. I'm sorry I just had to comment. Because this just seemed like kind of A strange place to witness to somebody.


  6. Funny how Mr Abdullah quotes Rumi at the end of his proselytising. Rumi as a Sufi, with all their 'haram' (meaning forbidden in Islam) singing, dancing, and hidden occult practises, aren't considered real muslims and have been persecuted in Islamic societies for centuries. Their work is still with us despite the suppression, because their's was a true spirituality free of dogma and evident to all regardless of culture or creed.

  7. Hi Chris,

    "OMG the coincidences r crazy! Just like, when i was you know, talking to courtney on the phone, and, like, then i saw her at the mall! We were like, OMG! LOL."

    That was, of course, the mainstream media speaking.

  8. some more on sirius
    "The Romans celebrated the heliacal setting of Sirius around April 25, sacrificing a dog, along with incense, wine, and a sheep, to the goddess Robigo so that the star's emanations would not cause wheat rust on wheat crops that year.[23]" from wiki
    about wine and sheep all i can say - old easter, new easter

  9. Comments that are not welcome here include sectarian proselytizing as well as posts that are completely off-topic, excessively long and obviously prewritten for other purposes, or all of the above like the two posts that have been removed.

  10. Hey my friend-
    Really sank my teeth into this last post. Nice and relevant. And something you and other dear readers might enjoy; Not many days ago I heard a fascinating interview with Cliff and George, also known as the boys with Half Past Human, originators of the Web Bot Project. Anyway, Cliff made an interesting comment. He said be beleived that the Powers That Be will often create situations where there is a lot of public negative emotion. Create circumstances that raise the public's ire to a fever pitch, and do this for the purpose of hiding other important but less obvious events, OR to drive people, through the trauma of ager and fear, to behave in a way that the unseen powers desire. Spooky sounding, I know. But could that be what's really going on, during these, the sweltering Dog Days of Summer, with the ' healthcare debate' getting so very, very hot?

  12. politic is a strange catalyst for some...

    Off topic here. Has it been a cooler summer for most?

  13. For the record and for fairness' sake- here is Abdullah's post that Jaz is responding to:

    Now the Qur'an, which is the literal Word of God revealed to the Prophet Muhammad 1500 years ago, compares idolatry and falsehood to the spider's web.

    God says in the Qur'an:

    "The likeness of those who take auliya' (protectors, helpers, gods) other than Allah is as the likeness of a spider, who builds (for itself) a house, but verily, the frailest (weakest) of houses is the spider's house; if they but knew.

    Verily, Allah knows what things (false gods) they invoke instead of Him. He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.

    And these similitudes We put forward for mankind, but none will understand them except those who have knowledge."
    [The Qur’an 29:41-43]

    In conclusion, Islam teaches that Dajjal the Antichrist will be the embodiment of materialism. He will reveal the occult mystery religions to the public and the masses will follow him. They will think he is a god because of the things he will do, but it will all just be an illusion. Only the true Muslims & Believers will be able to combat and resist the Antichrist.

    I end this letter with a beautiful poem by Rumi, the great Sufi Muslim saint:


    I tried to find Him on the Christian cross, but He was not there.

    I visited the temples of the Hindus and the old pagodas, but I could not find a trace of Him anywhere.

    I searched high up in the mountains and down low in the valleys but neither in the heights nor in the depths was I able to find Him.

    I went on pilgrimage to the Kaaba in Mecca, but He was not there either.

    I then questioned the scholars and philosophers but He was beyond their understanding.

    I finally took a look into my own heart and it was only there where I saw Him; He was nowhere else to be found."
    - Rumi


    Here is an interesting documentary series entitled "The Arrivals". You will know most of what is in it since its subject matter is regarding pop culture & the so-called "Illuminati", but please watch it to understand it from a Muslim perspective:

    Also, if you wish to discuss this issue further or contact me, you can reach me at:

    dawid.nahum [at]

    May Allah open your heart to the Truth and guide you to the Straight Path.

    "Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The parable of His Light is as (if there were) a niche and within it a lamp, the lamp is in glass, the glass as it were a brilliant star, lit from a blessed tree, an olive, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself), though no fire touched it. Light upon Light! Allah guides to His Light whom He wills. And Allah sets forth parables for mankind, and Allah is All-Knower of everything. "
    [The Qur'an 24:35]

    If Abdullah is interested in discussing the topics in the post his comments are welcome, but sectarian proselytizing of any kind is not.

  14. Forgive me if you've already covered this, I am behind in my reading and blogspot's search function leaves something to be desired.

  15. How funny I just now read your admonishment against off-topic posts. No offense intended

  16. As it says on the form, Lynnertic, the issue is "overly off-topic," as in eyeball-busting rants that have nothing to do with anything. Quick tips and links are always welcome.

    The comments section is for conversation and community, hopefully based around the topics covered on this blog.

  17. Wow
    That's damn amazing. Great research. It almost seems like we are repeating a time line of events when everything is analyzed between the codes.
    ...And the poster of the coiled snake?? Things really are whacky indeed! It definitely gets you wondering about things to say the least!

  18. Sirius Business in ARKADELPHIA, AR. For The Blue Dog Brawl. Only at I think their pretty sirius about this.

  20. CK, you are spot on in keeping this blog on topic of mystic syncro's. People diminish their souls with dogma(blue dogma)Faith is blind,knowledge is knowing. Keep digging for those mind expanding syncro's CK! Shine forth brave souls! Dennis

  21. Thought this was interesting to see on a walk about town. New themes and memes for the young ones.

  22. "Apophis was usually depicted as a coiled snake?"

    Todays google logo...Coiled wire around a nail. (battery and clock)

    I just watched an episode of the (Jewish) Larry David show where Larry asks his sullen handyman, Jesus (an actor with [no shit] a barcode (666) tattooed on the back of his neck "THX 1138 style"), to hang a mezuzah on his front door before his father visits. his Christian Father in Law had a prop "Christ nail" from the set of 'Passion of the Christ' on a rope (necklace) around his neck. Larry manages to piss off Jesus who never hangs the mezuzah and you guessed it, just as his father pulls up he takes the "Christ nail" from around his sleeping father-in-laws neck and nails the mezuzah to the door before his father notices. There was another really funny parts that were really intentional but, that made me think about all of this.

    BTW are you going to do something on that 'Burning Man' thing the pseudo-hippies do? Thats coming up soon and it's kinda tied in with my private blog stuff i am doing but I need someone who knows what they are talking about to "fill me in on it" cause honestly it's a little like the bohemian grove to me. And somehow I don't think these people know or maybe they do but don't fully understand what they are celebrating. ANY THOUGHTS?

    BTW I got in a "big thing" with my moms dog cause it bit my youngest son "Lincoln Kennedy" <---no shit I named him that, lol. So I was kinda wondering if something to do with dogs would pop-up, so THANKS!

    his song 'eye in the sky' is pretty telling too.

  27. Indras- Cheers, my man.

    Ela- Hot pic! Thanx for the link.

    Jaz- We'll be keeping that stuff off here but thanks for chiming in.

    Mark- Sounds like one of the Fox News bimbettes!

    Ela- Nothing new under the (Secret) Sun.

    Thrace- Yeah, it's all being coordinated. They're just being given the rope to hang themselves.

    MH- Oy- it's sweltering here.

    Leemonster- Language itself is a code, right? Makes you wonder who wrote it all...

    Beeret- Interesting- thanks for the links. COTDS looks VERY interesting.

    Dennis- Yeah, there are plenty of places for religious debates, many of which are funded up the wazoo. Not here.

    C- Burning Man? Well, I'd have to go there for myself. There's no doubt it all was inspired by Wicker Man, no matter how they try to deny it.

    Yahweh- No kidding? I'll have to check that out.

    JU- the Eagles signed Vick? F-ing hell. Well, good luck to them- they're in for it now.

  28. Hi Chris,

    That's why you're so appreciated, Chris, because you bring reality to a perfect understanding! Thanks for the explanation of Blue Dog dems. I know all about them but not in the way you explained it. You see, I'm from the South and a very "democratic" state, on the surface that is. We're rife with conservative dems. For example, my county has a 4:1 ratio of democrats to republicans yet for some strange reason our county commissioners are 5 out of 6 Republican. Our state has Republican congressmen and our local radio station talk show hosts brag of being democrats who vote for republicans because they're more conservative than the democratic candidates offered. How bizarre is that? One gentleman noted on the radio that he's only a democrat because his father was, no other reason. So my state and the one directly to the south of us have always dealt with Blue Dog democrats but thank you so much for the Sirius connection.

    So do you think that the ancient Egyptians dealt with an Apophis extinction level asteroid before or is NASA just so completely immersed in Egyptian lore that it simply leaks out from the sides now?

    BTW, President Obama is supposed to visit Yellowstone Park today. I mention that because just by coincidence, I'm sure, NatGeo had a Yellowstone Park episode on last night subtitled "Battle for Life"! What's with the "battle" theme whether in Congress or elsewhere?

    "Yellowstone: Battle for Life" detailed the struggle of the wildlife in the park during harsh winters but an odd portion of the program described the geology of Yellowstone. The park is unique because it's actually a caldera. The volcano beneath the park has a pool of magma described as the size of the state of Rhode Island. This magma is responsible for the heating of the water forming the large geysers in the park. Another oddity: the volcano erupted about 3000 years ago and spread an ash cloud over half the US and blew a corridor of the Rocky Mountains away which allows air from the Pacific Ocean to flow into Yellowstone, settle there and cause harsh winter storms.

    Sorry about the geography lesson but I thought it very interesting information especially since our very "ritualistic" President is visiting the area today. And the volcano under Yellowstone tends to erupt catastrophically every 3000 years or so, so this generation is geologically ready for another eruption...that's something I've never heard before.

    Also odd, is the fact that the Yellowstone Battle for Life documentary is not on the natgeo schedule on the website. I'm thinking the channel rearranged programming because of the President's visit to Yellowstone, especially because the visit is noted on natgeo blogs.

    Thanks for your insight, Chris!

  29. Wow, Soapie- you got me. As your comment makes clear there's so much going on on so many levels it's impossible to figure it out. I just think everyone is just starting to go bonkers and the gov't and media are doing all that they can to help that process along! As to Yellowstone, I'm sure there's some weird meaning there but I can't right say offhand what it is...

  30. Christopher, the furor from the Blue Dog Democrats over the health care reform legislation originated from the Congressional committee on health care chaired by Rep. Henry Waxman of California. Rep. Waxman tried to bypass the health care legislation from the committee in his rushed effort to get it voted into law. The 7 Blue Dog Democrats were angry with Waxman and threatened to withhold their supports on the committee. Eventually, they worked out a deal with Waxman and later with Obama, however, the Blue Dog Democrats still insisted on taking the legislation to the public and talking with their constituents, something that the Obama administration has resisted from the beginning. Now you're seeing all the furors in the news so far, thanks to the Blue Dog Democrats.

    What happened, Christopher, is when you have far-left Democrats wanting to pass a major legislation into law without bothering to discuss with the constituents about what this legislation would meant for them in the future. It is for the same reason how the Patriot Act was rushed into law after the 9/11 attacks, without discussing about civil liberty concerns. It is for the same reason how the Nazis rushed their legislations into law in the 1930s, draining out any opposition by the virtue of having enough party members in the Reichstag. See the similar patterns here?

  31. On the last ALTA report from it mentions the dog-poet and Sirius many times. Also is mentioned is unexplained energies from space. I want to apologize to Clif High if I'm revealing to much, I know his full report was hacked and almost put him out of business. I live in the Phila area and as commented above, all I'm hearing from friends and co workers is "Hide the Dogs Vick is in Town".

  32. Rob- So you're saying is that the whole furor has been subtly orchestrated by manipulating these blue dogs, eh? Very interesting indeed.

    Anony- Vick in Philae. Why does that make so much sense?

  33. Vick in Philadelphia??? Hmmmmm? Vick>>>Dogs>>>Second Chance>>>Obama>>>King Tut>>>Constitution>>>Bruce Springsteen>>>, Maybe "FORGIVENESS" is the underlining theme. Just a minor epiphany!! With all the talk about REVELATION OF SECRETS in the ALTA report it seems to avoid total social breakdown FORGIVENESS will have to prevail.

  34. Mike Vick dog killer also in the news a lot lately. Plus, You might have mentioned this but a lot of the protesters have been carrying Don't Tread On Me snake flags from the founding of the rebellion so many summers ago.

    also, good point, rob

  35. Chris,

    I searched through your posts wondering if you knew that the health care debate, which is based on house resolution H.R.3200; is a resolution that just happens to be 1,017 pages long.

    I had heard that the length of the resolution was over a 1000 pages but the exact number of 1,017 pages is starting to surface in the news and newspapers this week.

  36. That's funny, Soapie- you sort of have a 33/17 if you play with the numbers there a bit.
