Uranus in Aries Review Cosmic Intelligence Agency

This article is by Astrologer Cassandra Butler for the Cosmic Intelligence Agency

ReView – Uranus in Aries – March 11th, 2011- May 15th, 2018

URANUS WILL RETURN and retrograde back TO ARIES – NOV 7th 2018, then leave Aries for good for another 84 years on MARCH 6TH 2019.

Uranus emboldens revolutionary action and while transiting in the masculine sign of Aries this application suggests assertion, aggression even violence. Reflect upon the gun debate in the USA. It was the shooting of Senator Gabrielle Giffords in 2011 which began a seven-year stint of an unprecedented 18 mass shootings in the USA; Aurora Colorado, Newtown Connecticut, Fort Hood Texas, Charleston South Carolina, San Bernardino California, Blacksburg Virginia, Orlando Florida, Ocala Florida, to name but a handful of cities rocked by mass killings. The deadly affront to innocence was reinforced over and over. if one person isn’t save then no one is.

Aries is the sign of the head, the brain, and subsequently mental health. The USA mass shootings ignited conversations about not only gun control but the role of mental illness. Most of the shooters fit the profile of young and male, with a history of mental illness, with birthdays reflecting charts with the Uranus- Neptune conjunction of the early to mid-1990’s. This conjunction is notable for initiating the internet age, because it blends imagination with technology. In a specific chart this conjunction has the potential for the genius/crazy archetypal signature.

Violence cracked the sense of individual safety world-wide. The horror of political terrorism reared its head across the world in ways never experienced. In 2010 the reported acts of world-wide terrorism hovered around four thousand events. Each subsequent year, after the Uranus ingress, the rate increased exponentially to over forty-THOUSAND events in 2015. (https://ourworldindata.org/terrorism)

Aries reflects the spark of individuality, as Uranus is the planet of group consciousness. Over the past seven years we have seen multiple social action movements arise which reflect this theme; the individuals’ place within the collective. Consider the social political movements here and abroad; the `Arab Spring’, the `Occupy Movement’, the 99% movement, the Tea Party, the Women’s Marches, the March for our Lives Marches. Uranus the great awakener, like Prometheus unbound, has insisted upon the rights of the individual be called upon within the collective consciousness.

Lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius 2018-2019

Hooray for all Sagittarius peeps your BIG year begins Thursday, November 8 @ 4:38 am PST/7:38 am EST/ 12:38 pm GMT.- December 3, 2019

Sagittarius, Astrology, Art by Napoleon Brousseau

Sagittarius the centaur, is hald horse, half human. It is a wild instinctive sign needing space to run free.

Thursday is the day if Jupiter, Thor’s Day in Nordic Myth. Jupiter is Thor, Yahweh, Zeus, the Thunderbird all thunder and lightning Gods. 

“Hallelujah, come on get Happy.” – says Jupiter. This only happens on average every 12 years so start enjoying already.

the Color Purple is Jupiter’s color, His metal is Tin.

Stones: Lapiz Lazuli, Smoky Topaz, Turquoise, Tourmaline, goldstone

OILS: Cinnamon, clove, Frankincense, Laurel, Myrhh,

HERBS: Sage, Anise,Hysopp, Juniper,Lamb’s Ears, Licorice root, Linden, Lobelia, Magnolia, Milk Thistle, Mint, Mullein, Wormwood, Nutmeg, Oak trees,Olive Trees, Pau D’Arco, Pecans, peppermint,

The 9th sign is ruled by the Big winded planet JUPITER aka  Zeus in Greek mythology/ JOVE in Roman and the root of the word jovial meaning good-humored.

Sag. is the most mature of the three Fire signs and the root of the word SAGE. Sagittarius symbol is the Centaur,  half horse,-half human. It is a wild instinctive sign needing space to run free. Sagittarius is an active, mutable adaptable sign. 

Time to celebrate for Sagittarius and all fire signs who benefit from the Fire element.  Any planets that you have in Sagittarius will, of course, get the big Fertile expansive Boost especially to your Moon in Sagittarius, Ascendant, Venus or Mars in Sag.

in the Tarot Sagittarius is symbolized by the #14 Card Temperance. In the Thoth Tarot, this is known as ART/ Alchemy or ‘the Sacred Marriage” card. In the Court Cards Sag is the King or Knight of Wands.

Virgo and Pisces get the square push from Jupiter to expand their horizons.

Gemini gets the Jupiter opposition and Gemini is all about the oppositions. Jupiter can make them even more over the top as its nature is expansion.

Aquarius and Libra get sextiles a nice easy aspect from Sagittarius. 

Taurus and Cancer get the inconjunct from Jupiter which may make you resist the growth process. This can indicate financial and family problems. 

Jupiter will expand everything: optimism, traveling, including refugees, legal issues, judges, courts, higher education, being honest, casual fashion, sports, teachers, yoga, religion, veterinarians, animal rights activists, horses, long-distance relationships and the need to go to exotic places on a Vision Quest or do ayahuasca or some other arcane exotic little known trendy thing. Sagittarians like to be “in the know.”

This can adversely affect refugees as laws will be put into place to limit refugees in most places in the world.

Jupiter is also a sign of faith and religion. Many bible thumpers and preachers are strongly Sagittarius. Also the sign of mystics and philosophers. Pursuing mystical meaning and wondering in awe at the stars is very Sage. 

Jupiter rules international trade and airplanes. There may be an increase in plane accidents and hijacking of planes. Although Trump has put sanctions and taxes on foreign trade the rest of the world will be trading more enthusiastically with each other.

Check out where Sagittarius is in your Natal CHart to see where and how by aspect Jupiter will benefit you.

The downside of Jupiter: weight gain on the hips and thighs. Too much of a good thing is not good. Too much honest, too naive, too trusting, too klutzy, too easy going, taking people and things for granted, Too earnest, too judgemental, exaggerating things too much, too hypocritical, too much procrastinating, promising more than you can deliver. 

The Moon enters Sagittarius and conjuncts Jupiter at the end of the day.

A quadruple Sagittarius day!

We are off to an optimistic start with the Moon in Sagittarius 

The GODDESS of SAGITTARIUS is DIANA the Huntress. To the Greeks, she was Artemis, the Goddess of the hunt. She was always seen hunting in the woods with her dogs and she is also the archetype in Women Who Run With The Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. 

If you are 12, 24, 36, 48 60 or 72, or 84 you will experience your Jupiter return during those years.

Astrology now June 11-17

I’m feeling intuitively that a lot of shit is about to go down This week. New moon in Gemini on the 13th. There’s a Star Gate opening on the new moon.

Where’s  that Moon?

June 11-12

Taurus Moon Mood starts  the  week off with a grounded, earthy, surety. We’re focussed on sensuality, keeping things stable,and enjoying the finer things in life.Indulge your senses. People will dig in their hoofs.

June 12-14 Moon in mutable Air sign Gemini brings a flirty fast talking sales ability. Deciding what you want is a problem.

Donald Trump and North Korea Leader KIM Jong-Un have a historic meet up to try to create a new  partnership between the free West and North and South Korea.  Donald Trump and KIM Jomg-Un have a strong karmic connection. Remember Trump said he would know withi a few minutes that he would sense if They can work together. They will.                                                                    New/ Dark Moon on the 13th @ 22 Gemini focuses on open minded communications and choices.  The Moon  inconjuncts Pluto indicates divisions between feelings and being empowered. New Moon is always about new intention setting and sitting in ceremony to receive from the dark void of the womb of all creativity.

June14-16 Moon in water element,  super sensitive, emotional Cancer in its home sign. These days are full of  mood swings, sentimental, family-oriented fuzzies and all about home, women, children, nourishment and  nurturing, our stomachs rule whenever the moon is in Cancer.

June 16-Moon in Leo till Fathers Day

Leo fire moon is where the drama happens, everyone feels they are entitled and the stars of the show. Leo is strong willed, passionate, childlike willful and heartfelt.

Show Dad how much you care on Fathers Day.

Big planet aspects this week for all signs

June 11 Gemini Sun quincunx Pluto

Divisive communications and power struggles. Some shit is gonna go down around those in power  behind the scenes.manybpriole are trying to ditch their info and change their backstories.

June 12 Mercury enters Cancer

Our heads and our hearts work as one. Mind and feelings United. This is great to feel with the mind and think with the emotional body or heart. Speak from your feelings.

June 13 New Moon

Mercury in Cancer  sextiles Uranus in Taurus

this is great for compassionate conversations with allow for totally mewc out of the norm  solutions. Uranus in Taurus is new lands radical resources and literally revolutions on land and boundaries.,Radical stubbornness can get nurturing support.. This is the Trump Kim Jong-Un new open border peace talks which will bring a radical new beginning and partnership. Trump will be hailed as a great hero. I know you’ll hate me for saying that.

Venus enters Leo  June 13/14

Women, money, values, relationships are dramatic, passionate, over the top. Love loud. Be proud. Women need to love themselves. Be the star of your own show. There is danger of vanity, huge ego battles, and demanding the prima Donna treatment. Gold values go up.

June 14/15

Venus in Leo squares Uranus in Taurus

Uh oh. This is a new Fixed square energy. Those who are used to being in power get a rude awakening. The status quote is getting changed. Ego battles and struggles to hold onto power. The one who has the most power battles with entrenched values and resources. It’s Donakd Trumps birthday. This energy signature is a hallmark of his year ahead. Values are being radically altered in ways most people would not expect. Financial markets may crash or hit all time highs.

June 15/16 Mercury opposes Saturn in Capricorn

This is another power struggle between corporate powers-the Plutocracy and  patriots. The US is all about “mom and family values.”  Women are voicing their concerns against patriarchal values worldwide.

June 16  Mercury in Cancer quincunx Mars in Aquarius

A quincunx or  inconjunct is a difficult, irritating aspect. The two planets can’t relate or see each other literally. How can we expect to communicate? Mars is slowing down and is in its shadow period now before Retrograding June 26/27. Be open to nurturing radical ideas and innovation in  communications. Re-arrange your home. Renovate or redecorate with a fresh modern style. This is also good energy to change your diet or lifestyle radically.

Unconventional truth astrology

An upbeat optimistic fiery SAGITTARIUS day today. It’s a Holiday in the U.S. today-President’s day. Does Donald feel he should be treated extra royally today I wonder?

planetary movement in space Tara Greene

Two fire trines today have already happened. Were you dreaming you were roaming, running, in the wilds? 

Two sextiles today from SAGE MOON to Mercury in AQUARIUS and JUPITER in LIBRA.

There will be lots of political talk about refugees, foreigners, international trade and politics. There will be unconventional solutions bandied about. You will be slayed by Super Truth hot Sagittarius energy up on their soap boxes preaching about blowing things up; depleted Uranium usage in Syria by the U.S. and diplomatic relationships between Russia and the U.S. 

The planets are stitched together very tightly. 

Moon squares CHIRON in PISCES still around NOON in EST

You may just want to go hide. 

A sobering serious political note strikes later in the afternoon as MOON conjuncts SATURN

Be careful what you say as every word has karmic consequences. Seriously. 

MERCURY in AQUARIUS SEXTILES URANUS and ERIS in ARIES 

Mercury in Aquarius is revolutionary, inventive, pioneering minds and all inclusive. Uranus and ERIS are trouble shooters and troublemakers.  on Presidents day in the U.S. I am sure you will see many protests against Trump. This energy will create marches against whatever is traditional. This could be right or left-wing factions.

On a more personal level its a good day for putting on your thinking cap to make changes in organizing things, and rebooting anywhere you have been stuck.

The Moon enters Capricorn late in the day in PST.

PREVIEWS it’s a HUGE Week coming up.

We are feeling the energy building now up to the Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the 26th.

Mars in ARIES squares PLUTO on the 22nd reigniting  the CARDINAL CROSSES

Mars CONJUNCTS URANUS on eclipse day.

This is another big evolutionary injection into unknown chaotic territory.

Are you ready to take the plunge off the cliff?

In effect, the world is being drawn into the archetype of THE FOOL.

LAUGHING FOOL Tara Greene

The Fool = ZERO

The Fool lives totally in the moment and adjusts to whatever comes up.

Have yourself a Scorpio Christmas

The Moon is in Scorpio today on Christmas Eve in the U.S. and Chanukah

selfridges christmas shop window Zodiac

Selfridge’s store window Zodiac sign Scorpio

SCORPIO MOON is the most intensely passionate and obsessive of all the moon positions. This aspect brings on Black moods, deeply controlling, secretive, can be manipulative, power hungry shadows. It can be very sexually intense as well. If its just you and a beloved well enjoy the passion. We can use this opportunity to watch our family story just like a movie. Wich it is, your life is your own reality show. Watch all the family dramas, the old stereotypical roles everyone plays from the viewpoint of the watcher. Don’t react, just observe. This is dharma in action. 

Scorpio Moon trine Neptune in the a.m.

This is potentially a very mystical, dreamy, soul mate energy or very sad and lonely, drunken, addicted, in denial place. We can be feeling foggy, dreamy, melancholy, deluded, spiritual, hungover and feeling very empathic.  Do be very careful of overdoing it in the alcohol department. It’s a good night of powerful deeply spiritual and lucid dreaming. You can meet enlightened teachers but also demonic forces, Keep your guards up. Record whatever you dreamed about when you awaken.

Moon sextile Mercury 

This brings some helpful energy to Mercury’s Retrograde motion. If you are traveling and many are, people will be helpful and generally congenial.  Do call up old friends and wish them well. It’s important to reach out.

Saturn in SAGITTARIUS trine Uranus in ARIES at 20 degrees This is a BIG ASPECT.

Saturn is the traditional ruler of both Capricorn and AQUARIUS.  When planet Uranus was discovered March 13, 1781, by William Herschel in England, whose last name letter is still the symbol of Uranus, it became the modern ruler of Aquarius in Tropical Astrology.  By looking at their similarities rather than their differences we can really use this aspect to our best advantage. They are in fact the yin/yang, opposite poles of reality.  Saturn is the limits, history, the status quo. Uranus blasts away the old and frees it up, it invents, liberates, pioneers and radically alters the old structures.

Saturn is conservative and Uranus is the opposite. Those who feel Trump is taking America backwards must hold the light of change, innovation, radical invention, and Aquarian ideals that we are all deserving to be on the same playing field, not just the 1% and not just those corporations who “provide jobs” and are therefore given all kinds of tax-Saturn’s realm, leniency. Aquarius energy is inclusive of all. Everyone has a right to be free to be who they want. 

Scorpio MOON sextiles PLUTO 

This puts the Moon and Pluto into the same realm. PLUTO rules Scorpio. This is a very passionately sexual sign. This aspect easily digs up the old family skeletons. Dysfunctional family stuff will be bursting out more than the turkey’s stuffing. Great. This is just what most people want to avoid at Christmas. But where else to recycle the toxic family unconscious emotional shadows than at ground zero? We can use Pluto’s power as the purifier and recycler of the soul and the knower of shades to clarify our own soul, our own validity. Use all the shadows as a means to recognize them but not to be triggered and act on them. This can be challenging but also very transformative and liberating. If you can pass this test, you are truly free and clear and can laugh at all your shadows. Be careful around Trump supporters they are the most vitriolic. But so are Dem supporters these days. Watch and compare the two. It’s a remarkable show.

Moon square Venus in late PST/ Dec 25 in the wee hours 

This is a lovely deeply soulful heart energy. Think of those you love who have passed recently and in your past. This aspect helps us to plumb the depths of unfelt emotions. Let the tears or rage rise up. Squares bring up conflict. Be careful of touching raw nerves 

VENUS in AQUARIUS is also TRINE JUPITER in LIBRA

The overall benefits of this can not be overestimated considering everything else. No matter how much deep-seated trauma and emotional gut wrenching hurt a Scorpio Moon can dredge up. This aspect between the planet of Love and the PLANET of GENEROSITY brings peace, and goodwill, and largesse allowing everyone the space to be who they are which can overrule the Moon. But remember this detachment and being NICE for the sake of appearances can also be too superficial. The real emotional deep rivers of lava are still there running and burning underneath everything. You may leave feeling very wounded afterwards.

SATURN in SAGITTARIUS is squaring CHIRON

The old patriarchal family wounds will be triggered. Be careful of talking politics, which is Saturn in Sagittarius current preferred Karmic mode of torture and tests. Most people will feel hurt and offended by any positions these days.

JUPITER in LIBRA is opposite URANUS in ARIES

Bolting from the table because of a slight is very likely. Uranus in ARIES is impulsive and rash.The clash of the TITANS.  There will be clashes between liberals, and conservatives. Someone will have to attempt to be the conciliator, counsellor, or go-between. Divorces may be triggered. 

Sounds like it will be a heavily emotional Christmas climate. Be prepared. Remember to wear psychic armor at all times. Practice being loving and seeing everyone in your family as a wounded child who is unconscious and who only appear to be an adult. You can get through this, the Scorpio Moons purpose is transformation. 

MARS is in PISCES is very close to the SOUTH NODE of the MOON

Mars rules the Scorpio Moon. Use this energy as a conscious action to let go of past unconsciousness, martyrdom, fail for spite, power games, obsessive ego games, hiding out, blaming others, using addictions, and being co-dependent. Get rid of all of these avoidance techniques. Life is a rehab center. Just let go of all old karmic residue and boldly move on. This is a very spiritual Warrior position. Mars in Pisces is strong enough to be vulnerable, and compassionate. We can get close to the wounded masculine. At the appropriate times we can let down our shieds and our guard. True intimacy is possible.

Sending you blessings for a great Chanukah too.

Venus in Sagittarius Tara Greene

VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS  Centaurfold’s are popular

That’s my SUN MOON and MERCURY’s Sign.
Where is Sagittarius in your natal chart? That’s where the exotic stranger, far distant travels or teachers enters your life now.

VENUS gallops into Sagittarius and we are Hot to trot. The horsey set.

The Love Goddess morphs into the form of a Centaur, half human from the waist up, all horsepower from the waist down. Love must have freedom, to have the winds blow through your mane every which way on the open plains. This goes for female and male Sagittarius peeps all the time. As a double Sagittarius myself – don’t fence me in. It’s a centaur fold type of love. Sagittarius loves humor. 

Sagittarius rules POLITICS a particularly hot topic these days. WOMEN in POLITICS are in favor right now according to my astrology charts here. Women want justice, they will speak their minds. 

Gotta love Sagittarius style. HONEST to a fault. That hook in mouth thn=ing they do superbly. Love is animalistic and instinctive. Yes they whinny when making love, kick up their hoofs and snort with laughter. GYPSY SOULS. Have you ever loved a SAGITTARIUS? Tell me about your love adventure.

Remember they are half-wild and only partly tame, so don’t try to teach them too many manners too quickly. Just try to bust that bronco. You’ll find out. She or he will leave you with horseshoe marks on your ass. Lots of outdoorsy sex.

centaurs astrology Tara Greene

The fiery mutable sign, is ruled by largest planet Jupiter. They do loom large. They love to travel, to learn, they are natural teachers, who  are often self-taught. Philosophy, history, the exotic, pageantry, higher learning, the law, judgemental are all Saggy type of things.

Venus in Sagittarius characteristics – totally optimistic idealists. Honest to a fault,easy to like, casual, what you see is what you get. Blissfully naive. They appear confident and open, hence their charm. They like to take risks, they can be gamblers. They love the great outdoors, camping and sports.

Love may be sometimes klutzy,while Venus is in the 9th sign.

Love and stuff can be hypocritical,you may make extravagant promises you won’t be able to deliver on. 

Have you been in love with a SAG before? tell me about it.

Venus in SAGITTARIUS – NOT A DOMESTIC GODDESS!!

Sagittarius women like to have male friends who they can have intellectual relationships with. Sag. females are not naturally frilly girly girls. Brush up on your intellectual capacities.

SAGITTARIUS is the sign on Trump #14 called TEMPERANCE traditionally or ART/ALCHEMY  in the THOTH TAROT .

Venus in Sagittarius; even Cowgirls get the blues, she is usually eternally optimistic but when let down, she gets very low and cynical but then she is a red rubber ball, bouncing back.

Bouncing back may be a keyword right now as the election is Nov. 8th.

Republican Convention, an Astrology circus.

Yes the Republican Convention starts July 18 and already there has been demonstrations and revolt. The Convention falls under that heavy Full Moon in Capricorn. The Full Moon degree is on the U.S. natal PLUTO, foreshadowing where the U.S. is headed in the future.
July 18 is a difficult day with many inconjuncts. MERCURY trines SATURN in LEO which makes for serious self-promotion. With Mercury and Venus in LEO There will be TOns of drama. 
That very complex FULL MOON in Capricorn at 27 degrees is EXACTLY on the degree of where PLUTO was at the July 4, 1776 founding of AMERICA highlighting the very revolutionary times America is in for again.  PLUTO is also opposites the U.S.’s Part of Fortune at 26 degrees CANCER. That is a trip to the Underworld to die and be recycled. The P. of F. is the “pot of gold.”  This is so profound.
 Let’s look at the SIBLEY BIRTH CHART of AMERICA and the GOP convention.
U.S. 1776 birth chart, Tara Greene astrology
 SATURN Lord of KARMA is sitting right on the U.S. Ascendant, its world image now. Things are not looking good for America. It’s heavy times, the U.S. needs a make-over, it is payback time for old karmic debts. Saturn is also inconjunct {150 degree angle} to the U.S. Sun its ego and identity. Maturity, wisdom and experience is what is needed and learning from past mistakes. There is a lot of testing as these aspects only happen once every 29 years. 
NEPTUNE the planet of illusions, delusions, image, debt, false leaders, glamour, shooting oneself in the foot, martyrs, addictions,religion, self-enclosure, the 12th house, compassion is also squaring the U.S. ASCENDANT as Neptune moves Retrograde now in the natal 3rd house and into 2017. Neptune is Square Saturn of course as well.  The illusion versus what is real show is on now. The Reality show is NOT REAL on many levels. 
NEPTUNE TRINES THE U.S SUN
Which helps put a fake tan on everything. BIG illusions delusions, can’t see the forest for the trees. DEBT, scapegoating, making martyrs out of others. False flag operations everywhere. 
PLUTO is still squaring the U.S. SATURN and still opposed to the U.S. Cancer Sun
The Cardinal Squares are NOT OVER YET. The Plutonic transformation of the 99% versus the 1% is full on. This full moon is a foreshadowing of the big cataclysmic 2nd Revolution which is starting now and will continue to 2020 Saturn Jupiter conjunction, and Pluto return of the U.S.  from 2020-2025 and beyond. If Trump does somehow win in a living nightmare, thousands of Americans will flock to Canada to live. Plus real estate is 33% cheaper relatively at the moment. 
PLUTO is also squaring the U.S. Chiron in ARIES in its own home the 4th house
What ails thee? Is really the main question. The Fisher King. Well I guess you could interpret Donald Trump as having one sort of treatment for that. Pluto about to leave the U.S. 1st house and enter the 2nd which is resources, tools, hand on, practical stubborn {Taurus} territory. Strong like bull.  Pluto governs the collective Unconscious and that is very wounded and vulnerable and acting out in rage, shooting cops and cops shooting poor black people and the whole 9 yards. The only cure is for that ARIES MACHO fighter soldier man to allow himself to be vulnerable and change his tactics being the initiating macho hero. This old Judeo-Patriarchal archetype is really old.  
Thinking ahead…SATURN will also enter Capricorn on December 29, 2017 until March 21, 2020 on the Spring Equinox. Saturn will be extra strong in its in da house. 
JUPITER is about to cross Natal Neptune in VIRGO in the chart. NEPTUNE is the highest planet in the skies at the U.S. birth. Neptune rules HOLLYWOOD, images, illusions, delusion, oil, deception, debt, drugs, secret enemies, compassion, martyrdom, religion and spirituality, and creativity. 
This is a weird smoke and mirror show going on and the gullible Neptunians/Pisces types are buying it hook, line and sinker. That is the GOP. They may be pissed off that the world has changed but it certainly isn’t President Obama’s fault. Blame it on CHINA for God’s sake and your own outsourcing. Hit up the corporations themselves. Life is all about change.
Neptune helps us dissolve our egos into oneness. Thats why the Black Lives Matter and LGBT movements are here. The Olde Tyme Religion and misogyny is from the 19th century. We cannot go back in time. Well yes it has happened before, it’s called The Dark Ages. But people are semi-literate these days and have the net and the media and whatever the latest distraction of Pokémon and Big Pharma which controls their minds and soothes their ills and controls their habits. 
Jupiter in Virgo expands whatever it touches. Virgo is the hard-working 99%, the servants, the invisible people who do all the work. Virgo is efficiency, budgets, health care, laws, opportunity, expansion, education, religion, foreigners. All topics very up in the news now. A grass-roots Political movement is what the country needs right now. Such as Bernie Sanders was running. I do believe poor Bernie’s life and his families were threatened in order for him to comply. The Clinton have a trail of bad blood behind them going back to the 90’s. You can fact check this info on the net if you do some research. 
May you live in interesting times. We got that. I hope you aren’t playing Pokémon now as a distraction.
