A Very Sirius Election

One thing I've noticed - and that we've discussed here- is that Obama's campaign logo uses what is becoming the dominant symbol of our times, the Sun. And extra credit for the rising sun motif!

McCain, on the other hand, is using a black and white five-pointed star, as well as Masonic blue and gold. I'm wondering if that star is meant to represent Sirius, given that it's alternating design could be interpreted as dualist, and Sirius is a binary star system. Sirius is also the alleged home of the ancient astronauts Robert Temple writes about in The Sirius Mystery.

This is the glyph for Sothis, which was the Egyptian personification of the star Sirius. It's interesting to note that McCain uses not only the five-pointed star (which I believe was first used by the Egyptian) but also that pyramidion as well. It's interesting to note that there are two in his campaign logo, reminding us again of Sirius, but also of the twin columns of Solomon's Temple, representing dual phalli.

For his part, Obama's rising sun is essentially the same shape as the dome in the hieroglyph. Obama's three stripes correspond with the three elements in the glyph, which I am going to assume represent Osiris (pyramidion), Isis (star) and Horus (the rising sun, or the fetus within the womb/dome). I first saw this glyph when Flynn did a bit on symbolism in The X-Files.

It brought to mind the logo for Sirius Radio, which also features the five-pointed star, in this case a white star in place of a black dog's eye.
Sirius recently merged with its main competitor, XM, whose logo is unmistakably solar. And since Masonic symbolism is so often such a dominant aspect of this iconography, it's worth noting that "XM" can be interpreted as a cryptogram for 10/13 (X is 10 in Roman numerals and M is the 13th letter of the alphabet. This logo also incorporates a coded "33" in the waveforms.

Obama's logo also is similar to the Masonic point-in-circle solar icon used by Target (look at the white circles in Obama's logo).

WalMart also one used the five-pointed star, but their new logo is rife with Masonic solar motifs- the blue and gold, the six-rayed Sun which encodes both 33 and the square-and-compass an/or Seal of Solomon, both of which symbolize the conjunction of the male and female principles.

Masonry, the Knights Templar, Egypt, Sirius, sacred sexuality, ancient astronauts, money, power - all birds of a feather. The more you look, the more you see them all orbiting around one another, hoping nobody notices they travel together.
