Brooks, the loyal lieutenant of Rupert Murdoch, resigned Friday, July 15, 2011, as chief executive of his embattled News Corporation. Brooks was then arrested by police inspectors for her role in widespread telephone-hacking that has led to the closure of the News Of the World. The far-reaching media and police hacking scandal has shocked the United Kingdom.

Police say they have recovered a list of 3,700 names of potential victims but so far have been in touch with fewer than 200.
A Handle On The Phone Hacking Scandal
It also proves that political ideology - practiced as a corporate business model - especially in professional journalism - always fails in the end.
Between the years 2000 and 2005, executives and editors at the News of the World are alleged to have secretly hacked into the private telephones and cell phones of as many as 4,000 people; while also managing to allegedly bribe top and mid-level police officials who then offered up private information on celebrities, private citizens and victims of crime and their families.
*Former whistle-blower News Of The World showbiz reporter Sean Hoare found dead at residence
Hackers Say they've gotten hold of thousands of emails from The Sun and News Of The World and plan to release them to the public.
*Rupert Murdoch also called off a controversial effort to buy British cable provider BSkyB. He is struggling to keep the scandal from jumping across the pond to the U.S., where he owns Fox News, the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal.
Brooks was editor of the News of the World from 2000 to 2003, when the most egregious hacking was committed.
The data was collated before reports that News of the World had hacked into the voice-mail messages of murdered teenager Milly Dowler. The fall in News Corp. price represented at that time an estimated loss of 16 percent - highlighting the financial consequences for the Murdoch family as the hacking scandal widens.
Named 'publisher of the year" in 2010, Hinton had been with Murdoch for nearly 50 years, had run News International and in 2007 had testified before the British Parliament that he had no knowledge of the hacking.
The movie star *Hugh Grant, a constant tabloid target, helped uncover parts of the scandal by wearing a wire to record a former News of the World editor admitting to telephone hacking.
Transiting Jupiter's position in the Fourth Mundane House of the Total Lunar Eclipse chart shows the outcome, which are monetary losses.
Lilith is on the cusp of the Fourth House at 28-Aries in the June 15th Lunar eclipse chart for London signifying scandal that involves powerful executives with access to top police officials and extending into the prime minister's office.
The setting of the Gemini Sun, conjoined to the South Lunar Node in Gemini, preceded by transiting Venus in Gemini and followed by Mercury in Gemini, not only highlights the city of London (ruled by Gemini) but also that of a media empire.

Ed Miliband, leader of UK’s shadow government, has been warned to fear taking on the Murdoch family. In the U.S., Murdoch-owned Fox News works as unabashed spokes-network for the Republican Party.
It is easy to single out the Murdochs, but face it, journalists and politicians often hang in the same elite circles. A reporter banned from political class cocktail parties would soon seek other employment.
I agree with Tony Dickey's assessment of the situation - and its wider implications - for it appears that a major sea-change is now underway in the world of corporate mega-media giants.
Chaos at Scotland Yard as Yates resigns and more officers face allegations
For instance, a sudden major dust storm turned day into night in the city of Phoenix, Arizona.
Transiting Uranus is a player when it comes to long-range forecasting and in tropical Aries and sidereal Pisces, we can observe extreme cases of drought affecting many millions of people.
In the northern hemisphere, where the 2011 summer season is underway, planetary signatures related to the climate show there are vast amounts of warmth and moisture over the mid-western, eastern and southern U.S. building into what meteorologists call a "heat dome," - bringing with it record-breaking temperatures along with thick, humid topical air to scores of cities stretching from the Plains states eastward to the Ohio Valley.
The dome of high pressure also pushes the jet stream and its drier, cooler air, farther north - it's now well into Canada - while the hot, humid air emanating from the Gulf of Mexico circulates clockwise around the heat dome - traveling farther inland than normal. Combined with generally clear skies and the Sun's higher summertime angle, "it gets really hot," Jacks said.
So the next time you are about to walk into a McDonald's to order that "Happy Meal with large fries and a diet Coca-Cola" - do the world a huge favor - stop and think of what is happening to our human brothers and sisters in Africa.
Have a heart. Use that human free will of yours to help save a soul. You never know, the next soul you save again just may be your own. Please, do whatever you are able, whatever you can afford to do without - and GIVE, Donate, and yes, pray so we can help save many, many lives. The world is shitty enough as it is. Let's not be among those out there, who, well, just don't give a shit.
The average price of wheat flour increased by 17 percent between January and February 2011, to $620 per ton, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization's Global Information and Early Warning System, GIEWS.
Tens of thousands of people have left their homes in search of water and food. Hundreds of thousands of farm animals have died.
Nothing was done.

Without it, the destructive cycle will not be broken which forces hungry pastoralists to sell their means of production - livestock - as part of a short-term survival strategy.
Is This The New Normal?
Jupiter's synodic cycle for 2011 is that of the year 1928. The synodic cycle of 2012 is that of the year 1929, and history knows 1929 witnessed the bank/stock market crash that spawned the Great Depression.
The professional astrologer Willow explains to us that as Ceres stations retrograde at zero degrees Aries conjunct Uranus - that buying Organic Foods is a revolutionary act.
As Saturn transits Libra towards tropical Scorpio by October 2012, we can expect lots of talk and focus on commodities.
A movie filmed in the year 1982 in my hometown of Philadelphia gives us a curious view of what many commodities brokers and bankers have been up to for far too long. Turn your volume up to hear the conversation. Let's have a listen...
The $600 billion program, known as Quantitative Easing II, contributed to a loss in the dollar's value. The weaker dollar further boosted U.S. exports to nations whose currency is worth more, Boehlje said.
Because the June 2011 total lunar eclipse had the Dragon's Head conjoined to the Moon, there are many opportunities for the Greek people to set things straight before deep levels of austerity are imposed on the country.
The next seven years for Greece will determine the long-range outcome because the July 2018 total lunar eclipse promises more negative inclinations due to the Dragon's Tail conjunction with the eclipsed Moon and Mars in tropical Aquarius.
The rating agency also said it was cutting its long-term rating on Greece - three notches deeper into 'junk' territory, to CCC from B.
That would inflict more financial pain on banks and bondholders with that debt.
Point number one deals with the "voluntary" nature of the dealing. If banks roll over debt under duress, fearing bigger losses if they don't, the rating agencies will not consider that a "voluntary" rollover.
Even if a voluntary rollover can be constructed, condition number two must still be satisfied. I fail to see how that is possible, at least without destroying Greece.
There is a nice article on by Peter Tchir of TF Market Advisors called Making Sense of the French Rollover Plan
Before digging into the specifics, let’s look at what a true rollover would look like.
There are 3 key elements to a real rollover.
If all 3 of these criteria are met, and the new bonds are pari passu with the existing bonds, then I think everyone would agree that Greece benefits, the Troika would benefit, and the Participants would have made a sacrifice.
What Tchir says is true, but since when is the plan to benefit Greece? Moreover, even if the plan was to benefit Greece, notice the key phrase "the Participants would have made a sacrifice."
A sacrifice implies "investors receive less value than the promise of the original securities.”
That in turn implies default - at least to the ratings agencies.
Tchir continues ...
The ISDA credit derivative definitions for a Restructuring Credit Event have to meet 2 tests. The first part of the test is straightforward and is met if bonds are extended, or the coupon is reduced, for example.
Mish Shedlock: However, Tchir goes on to say ""
The plan as it stands is complicated. Tchir does his best to explain it by comparing the rollover to 30 year mortgages.
The structure is designed in a such a way to make it look like the Participants are being helpful – 30 years at a low coupon, but separating the SPV into its zero coupon component and the loan to Greece clearly demonstrate that the terms being offered to Greece are far worse than the headlines that the Participants are selling to the public.
I would be surprised if Greece agrees to the loan terms as included in the French proposal and wonder if they have even been consulted?
Ultimately, many economists say, the sovereign debt of Greece and some other countries will have to be restructured, with their creditors accepting a discount on the debts’ face value. European officials have so far sought to avoid taking that step.
For over a decade I have been studying the world transits of the Twenty-Tens and the Cardinal Crisis. It was not easy to be among the lone voices in the wilderness warning of troubles ahead while most of the world was experiencing the 'good times' of the leveraged derivatives financial bubble.
This really had been going on since 1982, right at the start of the last Saturn-Pluto conjunction, when what amounted to 'free credit' was released to baby boomers, who, after several years of cocaine snorting and disco dancing - dropped their progressive idealism and embraced greed.
It was time for rampant materialism and demanding not to be called 'Hippies' anymore - but 'Upwardly Mobile' that is - a "Yuppie." I could not believe this shit was happening all around me. I was only 19.

I watched in absolute amazement how millions of baby boomers prostrated themselves to the very things they said they were 'totally against' - in favor of easy credit, cheap disco music and widespread designer drugs - at the very time millions were dying in Africa from widespread drought and famine, mind you.
When that happened back in the early 1980s, transiting Saturn was about to leave tropical Libra and enter tropical Scorpio, just at the cusp of the AIDS epidemic. Then Saturn entered Sagittarius and the stock market crash of 1987 came along and ended that 'Yuppie' era.
Max Keiser, working for years on Yuppified Wall Street of the raging 1980s said this about it all:
Saturn will enter tropical Scorpio in October 2012 through September 2015. It is my forecast that these years are those of hardships, imposed by austerity with socio-economic rebellions fueled by the Uranus-Pluto cardinal world squares with effects lasting - for many nations - clear to the next decade of the 2020s.
James Corbett of the Corbett Report on 'The Meaning of Austerity'
In 2010, 'austerity' was named 'word of the year' by Merrian-Webster Dictionary. In the real world it is known as 'sovereign debt for nations' - or a depression.
In the language of ivory tower economics, the word austerity is known as the policy of cutting deficits and lower rates of spending with drastic reductions in levels of benefits and public services.
We've examined the crisis of the Euro currency before on Global Astrology. The European currency is under great stress as the 17 member countries of the European Union ( EU) struggle with high rates of unemployment and imposed sovereign debt.
Readers of Global Astrology know that it is my view that all of this is generational. The dying oligarchy and the outgoing baby boomer establishment does not want to pay for their failures and very bad bets. They continue to refuse to leave the casino until they can take the 'winnings' that they in fact - lost.
Of course, this is unacceptable. The refusal of bondholders, who represent the aged, to take their 'haircut' after not only mismanaging the financial community, but in fact, corrupting it beyond anything witnessed in Earth's history, truly should draw the contempt of anyone who claims to possess common sense.
How can you demand the World Series trophy when you lost the series? How are you able to claim the World Cup when you lost every match played? Just how are you able to demand the Heavyweight Championship of the world when you knocked yourself out?
"But it's not to say it couldn't happen if people feel lied to, if there's a sense that sacrifice isn't being shared, or if the medicine prescribed to help the economy actually winds up hurting it."
On the federal level, Hickey pointed to Republican-advocated budget cuts.: "Republicans have been promising that massive cuts to government programs would create jobs and help the economy," Hickey said.
"But if cuts kill growth and the economy gets worse, just as in Greece, people will be very angry." On the national level, he said, "Democrats should insist on one-to-one tax increases and budget cuts, not the three cuts-to-one tax increase the Republicans propose."
Negotiators said they will work through the weekend for a deal to avoid a debt default. Obama and congressional leaders are aiming for at least $3 trillion and possibly more than $4 trillion in budget savings.
The meeting dealt only with the size of a deal, but not policy specifics. A meeting for Sunday, July 10 is scheduled to tackle the more difficult question of how savings can be achieved, aides said.
The U.S. deficit is expected to be $1.4 trillion this year. The U.S. Treasury has warned it will run out of money to pay all of the country's bills if the debt ceiling is not increased by August 2.
And since this will most likely be a benchmark loan with a term sheet to be promptly circulated to other cash-strapped states, it will be all the more important in defining key term components as subordination, collateralization and general interest rates.
And real-world policy - policy that will blight the lives of millions of working families - is being built on that foundation.
Somebody had better get wise - and quick too - because transits wait for no generation and the clock, you know, is always ticking...
By 2025, it is projected that there will be approximately two U.S. workers for each retiree.
Advice & Solutions
My review of the Twenty-Tens has shown that to successfully navigate this decade it is essential to be able to adjust to the changing times by thinking and acting in advance as much as possible.
Trends forecaster Gerald Celente gives us his thoughts in July 2011:
While resources have been stolen, and drained from private and public services and as more and more families once considered middle class fall into poverty it is important to form healthy support groups among one another that can fill in the gaps left by the devastation of the economic crisis.
- Set medium and long-range goals that are clear
- Communicate well, don't waste valuable time
- Manage conflicts in ways that result in positive solutions
- Relocate to regions where the support is best
- Surround yourself with people who can be trusted
- Avoid unreliable people, groups and associations
- Draw up monthly and yearly plans that are practical
- Think outside the box
- Strengthen family & personal relationships to the best of your ability
- Refuse to participate in deceptive practices
- Be of good cheer, think and see in your mind's eye what you want
The geopolitical, generational and societal transformation now underway could have been much easier if the boomer establishment had not broken the intragenerational contract. But the damage has already been done.
By 2012, mundane transits depict a special inter-era of sorts, featuring another build-up of the cardinal cross transits that will extend through this decade and culminate powerfully into the year 2020.
Know your personal astrological transits. Not to know is to be truly blind to your own self. Apply your energies to attract the opportunities that you seek. This is as much about thinking about what toward you aspire and then looking for signs of your healthy thoughts in your environment. Trust your instincts.
Many, if not all, of the troubles centering today on economics, jobs, finance and the effects on society stem directly from bad men and women who believe that they sit in high places. So let's first talk about the realities of some rather 'low places," shall we?
People sometimes ask me if I believe in eternal punishment. I always answer that yes, I do believe and I have very good reasons why too.
I've seen a few things which, if I related to most people, they would not believe me. Yet, these things are true. They exist as surely as you and I do, are very real and are all around us - all the time - everywhere we go.
They see, hear, and record all that we do - from mortal birth to mortal death.
Natal astrological transits depict our destinies. We cannot escape our destiny, but we can truly alter and change our fates. And clocks are ticking...
The whole of astrology itself is wholly concerned with theological and spiritual matters, with destinies and the fates of individuals, groups, populations of the entire world.
"My Lord, in what type then do Baptisms forgive sins?
Now, therefore, my Lord, tell unto us the type, how they forgive sins; nay, we desire to know it with sureness."
Jesus said unto Mary and the female disciplines:
"Give opportunity to your men brethren, that they also may question."
Peter answered and said: "My Lord, a robber and thief, whose sin is this persistently, when he comes out of the body, what is his chastisement?"
"If the time of such a one is completed through the sphere, the receivers of Adōnis come after him, and lead his soul out of the body, and they spend three days circling round with it and instructing it concerning the creatures of the world.
"Thereafter they lead it down into the Amente before Ariēl, and he taketh vengeance on it in his chastisements three months, eight days and two hours.
"Thereafter they lead it into the chaos before Yaldabaōth and his forty-and-nine demons, and every one of his demons takes vengeance on it another three months, eight days and two hours.
"Thereafter they lead it on to the way of the midst, and every one of the rulers of the way of the midst takes vengeance on it through his dark smoke and his wicked fire another three months, eight days and two hours.
"Thereafter they lead it up unto the Virgin of Light, who judges the righteous and the sinners, that she may judge it.
And when the sphere turneth itself, she hands it over to her receivers, that they may cast it into the æons of the sphere. And they lead it forth into a water which is below the sphere; and it becomes a seething fire and eats into it until it purifies it utterly.
"Thereafter cometh Yaluham, the receiver of Sabaōth, the Adamas, brings the cup of forgetfulness and hands it unto the soul; and it drinks it and forgets all things and all the regions to which it had gone.
And they cast it into a lame, halt and blind body.
"This is the chastisement of the thief."
Andrew answered and said:
"An arrogant, overweening man, when he comes out of the body, what will happen to him?"
"If the time of such an one is completed through the sphere, the receivers of Ariēl come after him and lead his soul out of the body and spend three days travelling round in the world and instructing it concerning the creatures of the world.
"Thereafter they lead it down into the Amente before Ariēl; and he takes vengeance on it with his chastisements twenty months.
"Thereafter they lead it into the chaos before Yaldabaōth and his forty-and-nine demons; and he and his demons, one by one, take vengeance on it another twenty months.
"Thereafter they carry it on to the way of the midst; and every one of the rulers of the way of the midst taketh vengeance on it another twenty months.
"And thereafter they lead it unto the Virgin of Light, that she may judge it. And when the sphere turneth itself, she hands it over to her receivers, that they may cast it into the æons of the sphere.
And the servitors of the sphere lead it into a water which is below the sphere; and it becomes a seething fire and eateth into it until it purifies it.
"And Yaluham, the receiver of Sabaōth, the Adamas, comes and brings the cup with the water of forgetfulness and hands it to the soul; and it drinks and forgets all things and all the regions to which it had gone.
And they cast it up into a lame and deformed body, so that all despise it persistently.
"This is the chastisement of the arrogant and overweening man."
- Jesus Christ, Chapter 146, Portions of the Books Of The Saviour, The Pistis Sophia
Christ continued in discourse and said to his disciples:

"Say to those who teach the doctrines of error and to every one who is instructed by them:
'Woe unto you, for, if you do not repent and abandon your error, you will go into the chastisements of the great Dragon and of the Outer Darkness, which is exceedingly evil, and never will you be cast up into the world - but will be nonexistent until the end.'
"Say unto those who abandon the doctrines of truth of the First Mystery:
'Woe unto you, for your chastisement is sad compared with that of all men.
For you will abide in the great cold and ice and hail in the midst of the Dragon and of the Outer Darkness, and you will never from this hour on be cast up into the world, but you shall be frozen up in that region and at the dissolution of the Universe you will perish and become nonexistent eternally.'
The Boundaries Of The Ways Of The Worthy
"Say rather to the men of the world:
'Be calm, that you may receive the mysteries of the Light and go on high into the Light-kingdom.'
"Say unto them: 'Be loving unto men, that you may be worthy of the mysteries of the Light and go on high into the Light-kingdom.'
"Say unto them: 'Be gentle, that you may receive the mysteries of the Light and go on high into the Light-kingdom.'
"Say unto them: 'Be peaceful, that you may receive the mysteries of the Light and go on high into the Light-kingdom.'
"Say unto them: 'Minister unto the poor and the sick and distressed, that you may receive the mysteries of the Light and go on high into the Light-kingdom.'
"Say unto them:
'Be you loving unto the Immortal God, that you may receive the mysteries of the Light and go on high into the Light-kingdom.'
"Say unto them: Be righteous, that you may receive the mysteries of the Light and go on high into the Light-kingdom.'
"Say unto them: Be good, that you may receive the mysteries of the Light and go on high into the Light-kingdom.
"Say unto them: Renounce all, that you may receive the mysteries of the Light and go on high into the Light-kingdom.
"These are all the boundaries of the ways for those who are worthy of the mysteries of the Light.'
"Unto such, therefore, who have renounced in this renunciation, give the Mysteries of the Light and hide them not from them at all, even though they are sinners and they have been in all the sins and all the iniquities of the world, all of which I have recounted unto you, in order that they may turn and repent and be in the submission which I have just recounted unto you.
Give unto them the Mysteries of the Light-kingdom and hide them not from them at all; for it is because of the sinfulness that I have brought the Mysteries into the world, that I may forgive all their sins which they have committed from the beginning on.
For this cause, have I said unto you aforetime: 'I am not come to call the righteous.'
Now, therefore, I have brought the mysteries that their sins may be forgiven for everyone and they be received into the Light-kingdom. For the mysteries are the gift of the First Mystery, that he may wipe out the sins and iniquities of all sinners."
