Astrologers Gather for Conference in California and Predict the 2016 Presidential Election

Excerpt from the Orange County Register

On Thursday, October 13, 2016, approximately 500 astrologers from as far away as India, Turkey, Serbia, Croatia and Argentina gathered at the Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa for a four-day conference where they made predictions on global financial markets, relationships and spiritual and karmic life phases.

A panel of six international astrologers from Turkey, Canada, Slovenia, England, Serbia and an American from La Jolla, convened to discuss and present their predictions for the 2016 presidential election.

With just one week to go, in one of the most contentious presidential elections on record, the celestial bodies have already declared a winner. The Planets are aligned for a Clinton victory. The panel unanimously tapped the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, for a return to the White House. The panel studied birth charts, election charts and planetary alignments to determine the winner.

Nick Dagan Best, a panelist from Montreal, found that Mars, Pluto and Saturn were aligned at the same point on the ecliptic, or Zodiac ring, signaling a win for Clinton. The next one is expected around 2020, he said, adding that past triple planetary alignments last century came in the midst of life-changing events.

“In 1982, the only time in her life that those planets made a conjunction was when she adopted the name Clinton,” he said. “She’s got that triple conjunction and it would just stand to reason that she would be the one in office when this occurs next.”

The only American on the dais, Edith Hathaway of La Jolla, said the alignment of Jupiter and Saturn within months of a presidential election or inauguration bodes well for whichever political party is in power at the time. Trump’s chart shows him nearing the end of the Rahu, an 18-year period of success and great heights, she said. “Typically when that ends, there’s separation and loss,” Hathaway said.

Though the six featured astrologers used different methods to come to the same conclusion, all agreed that Clinton’s time of birth, which remains in dispute, makes it harder to create her birth chart. On several occasions, Clinton has said she was born at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Oct. 26, 1947 in Chicago. She has also said she was born at 2:18 p.m.

“The problem is we have to dance around it,” said Shelley Ackerman an astrologer and spokeswoman for the event’s organizers, the International Society of Astrological Research. The issue is of such importance that Ackerman, who once obtained Bill Clinton’s birth time from his mother, created a petition that would mandate congressional candidates to release long-form birth records.

Christeen Skinner, a panelist from London, said Clinton will win the election, but may not make it to her inauguration due to her highly publicized health concerns. “I just don’t see that inauguration taking place,” she said. “There’s a big dispute about her time of birth, so it could be maybe she gets the flu. Who knows.” Skinner said Trump’s chart is steadily losing power, possibly from the “battles” he faces over allegations of sexual harassment, lawsuits and a troubled campaign.

Astrology faces criticism from skeptics, who rely more on polling data than on the cosmos. “It’s not about the stars,” said Ema Kurent, who served on the panel. “It’s about us being synchronized with planetary rhythms.”

Posting Soon: The Prince Family Trust will be releasing two new albums of re-mastered hits and unreleased new material from "The Vault." Both are scheduled to drop in November. Check back for the details.

JonBenét Autopsy to be Released Wednesday, October 13

Burke Ramsey filed a defamation lawsuit on Thursday, October 6 against a Michigan forensic pathologist who told a Detroit-area media outlet that Burke Ramsey killed his sister, JonBenét.

The complaint alleges that in a September 19 interview, Dr. Werner Spitz said that nine-year-old Burke bludgeoned six-year-old JonBenét to death. The complaint filed in Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit says "Spitz made this accusation without ever examining JonBenét's body, without viewing the crime scene, and without consulting with the pathologist who performed the autopsy on her.” The lawsuit accuses Spitz of being a publicity seeker "with a history of interjecting himself in high profile cases."

In 2008, Burke Ramsey and his parents, John and Patsy Ramsey were cleared of suspicion by prosecutors who said that the DNA on JonBenét's underwear did not match anyone in the family.

Burke Ramsey, now 29 and living in the Charlevoix area of northern Michigan, is seeking a jury trial and at least $150 million in damages. His attorneys said they demanded a retraction from Dr. Spitz on the day after the interview, but Spitz refused.

Greg Testa, the Chief of Police for the Boulder Police Department said investigators have collected 1,500 pieces of evidence, including the analysis of 200 DNA samples, traveled to 18 states to interview about 1,000 people and have received, reviewed or investigated more than 20,000 tips, letters or emails. He described the Ramsey investigation as an open case with investigators from the department’s major crimes unit still assigned in an ongoing effort to bring “justice for JonBenét.”

Testa further said, "There is no question this case has caught worldwide attention and there continues to be speculation as to who committed this crime. Publications and movies offer many theories as to how this crime occurred and who is responsible. Facts have been surmised and often distorted, which has led to many conclusions."

Chief Testa asks that anyone with information, that might help the case, should contact:

Boulder Police Department Tipline at 303-441-1974, or
Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Shocking Surprise at Paisley Park Museum

A miniature mausoleum, created on a 3-D printer in the likeness of Paisley Park is encased in glass and on display in the lobby of the Paisley Park Museum. An official photo of the display has not yet been released, but is described as being in the center of the room. It is now the final resting place for Prince’s ashes.

What a stroke of marketing genius!

Fans will be flocking by the tens of thousands to see that. The Chanhassen City Council is concerned that the museum will turn the small town into a "tourist" attraction and negatively affect the residents. Thus, until more research can be done, the rezoning discussions have been tabled until December. Until the rezoning is approved, no tour schedule can be released. Hopefully, both sides will get what they want.

Prince News—Paisley Park Museum

Just as I predicted, it was announced just two days ago, that the Paisley Park Museum, scheduled to open to the public for tours will NOT open on October 6 as planned. According to the Star Tribune, the Chanhassen City Council, has delayed the opening date. After several hours of discussion and a 3 to 2 vote, they chose to table the zoning request that would reclassify Paisley Park as a museum. The council members want more time to figure out how the museum’s opening would affect Chanhassen’s traffic, parking, and public safety. One member said they also need to decide whether they want to become a “tourist town,” hosting approximately 600,000 visitors annually. Even with a Trust adviser handling the business affairs for the estate, it seems that no one has ever heard the expression, “counting your chickens before they hatch.” Didn’t anyone think that until the details were finalized, it would not be a good idea to make big plans. Geez Louise…

The planned Paisley Park museum will provide fans access to the building’s first floor, which includes over 12 rooms that are organized chronologically throughout Prince’s career, and will include his various instruments, outfits, and other items. Prince apparently left “detailed guidelines” for converting the studios into a museum. Those include “a wall-mounted timeline of his life through the mid-1990s and messages and texts sent to friends that specify how he wanted fans to walk through Paisley Park.

“Entertainment Tonight” shared a sneak peek preview of the museum and a short interview with his sister, Tyka. She was asked about her reaction to her brother’s death and she said she was expecting it. He had told her two years ago that he felt he had done everything that he came here to do.

I am continually amazed by how beloved Prince Rogers Nelson was to people who barely knew him, or didn’t know him at all. Cities all over the world are dedicating various events as a tribute to his memory.

I lived in Cincinnati and I know how conservative that city can be. Yet, they dedicated their annual Labor Day fireworks show to Prince by “purple-izing” the show. Their famous fireworks waterfall that cascades off of one of the bridges across the Ohio River, was turned purple instead of the usual white.

The latest display of affection comes from the Minneapolis Lynx players, who wore commemorative basketball shoes.

On September 19, 2016, the Minnesota Vikings played their first regular season game at their new home, U.S. Bank Stadium. During halftime, they paid tribute to Prince with a rendition of “Purple Rain,” performed by the Minnesota Orchestra and the Steele Family. The entire field was lit in purple.

30.  OLTL, All My Children, and Loving

Agnes Nixon
Creator and writer of some of the most popular soap operas in the last 60 years, died on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 in Rosemont, PA. She had been struggling with complications of Parkinson’s disease and a recent stroke. She was 93.

Nixon was highly regarded as a pioneer for women in television. She transformed the traditional soap opera by introducing real-life issues into her shows. She modeled the fictional town of Pine Valley, the setting for “All My Children” on Rosemont, PA the suburban area where she lived and that was her home base for the rest of her life.

Nixon was co-creator of CBS’ long-running “As the World Turns.” Early in her career, Nixon was a writer on CBS’ “The Guiding Light” and NBC’s “Another World.”

Nixon found her true calling in the late 1960s and early 1970s when she and her husband, Robert Nixon, created “One Life to Live” and “All My Children” for ABC. In the 1980s she wrote ABC’s “Loving.” In contrast to the existing soaps, the series were notable for featuring socially relevant issues with racial and ethnic diversity among its characters.

It was no secret that “All My Children” was her favorite story and Erica Kane her favorite character. She based arch villain Adam Chandler, who didn't “know how to love,” on her father and gave the manipulative Erica Kane, abandonment issues, from which she herself suffered as a child, due to her parent’s divorce shortly after her birth.

“All My Children” and “One Life to Live” were canceled by ABC in 2011 after 40-plus years on the air. That was a sad day for all of her fans. I had personally been watching OLTL for over 30 years.

During her career, Nixon earned five Daytime Emmy Awards and five Writers Guild Awards. She was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame in 2010. She received a lifetime achievement honor from the Daytime Emmy Awards also in 2010.

Nixon just finished writing a memoir, "My Life to Live," which is scheduled to be released in January, 2017.

Agnes Nixon’s survivors include three daughters, a son, 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Her husband, Robert Nixon died in 1996.

29.  Historical Presidential Debate

The past two days have been dominated by the Clinton vs. Trump presidential debate. Today, the media spent the entire day talking about how the candidates looked or sounded during their “performance.” They said very little, if anything, of importance. I vowed not to reveal my personal preferences, but I can no longer keep it all to myself. Besides, neither of the candidates is that desirable. It’s an equal opportunity disdain.

Hillary looked like a robot/mannequin with a fresh haircut and an artistically painted younger face. Trump was making sniffing noises and he looked tired. The moderator, Lester Holt, just shuffled his notes around and tried to get in between the candidates, to no avail.

Hillary’s supporters have it in their heads that the presidency is the “prize” that she has to “win” at any cost. At this point, she will say ANYTHING to win. Since she has worked so hard for this prize, she feels she deserves it. She feels entitled because it is “her time.” Hillary is a career politician. If she loses the prize, she has nothing to go back to except old Bill; because this is her whole life. I feel sorry for her. She’s old, bitter and unhappy and she brought it all on herself. I would love to see a woman in the White House. I just want a different woman.

Trump has a perfectly lovely life to go back to. He has generously offered his expertise to help get this country going again, but he is tired of being abused by Hillary and the media. He can win if he wants to, but his attitude will have the greatest influence on his future.

In my opinion: Clinton looked a lot better. When Trump attempted to defend himself, she just kept talking, completely unruffled. Her debate experience definitely showed. She was full of statistics, whether or not they were factual, and she presented them as though they were facts. She is an accomplished liar. I’ve known a lot of compulsive liars and it always comes from insecurity. That’s NOT a leader because they can’t make decisions without worrying about what people are going to think of them.

Trump doesn’t care that much about what anyone thinks. Even his wife says he does whatever he wants, no matter what anyone thinks. Trump still has a lot of work to do. His performance was not very impressive. I’m sure he didn’t lose any supporters, but probably didn’t gain any either.

Trump is no dummy. He is a fast learner and is probably already working on his new strategy. Hillary gave us her very best last night and Trump gave us very little. So, the next debate will be an uphill battle. Hillary would be running away with the victory, if not for Trump. None of the other potential candidates would have been able to get this close to her. But all-in-all, she is still a terrible choice.

28.  JonBenét Ramsey Docu-Series, Part II

Monday afternoon, TV personality, Dr. Phil concluded his interview with JonBenét Ramsey’s brother, Burke Ramsey. Monday evening was the conclusion of the special docu-series on the re-investigation of the murder itself. Dr. Phil calls it the “Most infamous unsolved mystery in history.”

I didn’t get much out of the interview except a look at Burke’s body language and facial expressions when he was asked specific questions about JonBenét. Because I am a face reader, it helped reinforce my theory of the crime. Burke was led to believe the killer was probably a pedophile who had seen JonBenét at one of her pageants.

The Boulder Police Theory.
The intruder surveilled the family to learn when they would most likely not be home. The Ramseys went to a friend’s Christmas Eve dinner party; and the intruder entered the house through a broken basement window and waited. He/she was already in the house when the family returned home. The intruder wrote the ransom note, used a stun gun to subdue JonBenét, then took her downstairs with the intention of taking her out of the house through the basement window. At some point, the plan went array, he/she accidentally killed her and then escaped through the basement window. That is why there was no 10:00am phone call, as mentioned in the note, because he/she knew that JonBenét was already dead. The Boulder police focused on sexual abuse by a stranger because DNA found on her underwear did not match anyone in the family. The Boulder police concluded that an intruder killed JonBenét.

The Re-investigation Team.
Inside of a 50,000-square-foot warehouse, CBS built an exact replica of the rooms in the Ramsey home, using crime scene photographs. The furnishings were as close to perfect as possible—down to the food on the kitchen counter. The flashlight was clearly seen on the kitchen counter. The family would not permit forensic specialists to tour the actual home and crime scene; even though it was crucial to determining an accurate assessment of the crime. The re-creation gave the forensic experts the opportunity to walk through the house and get a better idea of how the crime could have been committed.

The intruder theory was soon debunked. Photos showed cobwebs in the corners of the basement windows that would not have survived if someone had entered that way. The windows did not open all the way due to a structural obstruction; so it would have been a “tricky entry.” A suitcase was placed under the window to facilitate an exit; but even with that, the person would need considerable upper body strength to boost him/herself up and out.

Dr. Lee suggested there was no sexual assault and that the DNA on the underwear was “touch DNA” deposited by someone during the manufacturing process. Investigators purchased new underwear still in the package and tested it for DNA. They did find foreign DNA on the brand new underwear. The conclusion: There was NO sexual abuse.

There were small red marks on JonBenét’s back that were originally thought to be stungun marks. A volunteer agreed to be tased to observe the marks that resulted. First of all, the tasing did not sedate the volunteer, it stimulated him. Secondly, the tasing was so painful that a child would have screamed loudly. And lastly, the distance between the two red marks did not match the prongs of the stungun.

In the room next to the room where the body was found, was the train room. As it turned out, the metal connectors of the train tracks, matched the red marks exactly. One of the investigators commented: If it were an adult who found the unresponsive child, they would have called 911 immediately. Instead, someone poked at the body to try to revive her. The reason there was no blood was because she was already dead.

Burke’s Interview Tapes.
The first interview was conducted one day after the murder, by a detective. Burke does not ask about his sister, where she is or how she is. He has been told that an intruder had come into the house.

Two weeks after the murder, he was interviewed by a psychologist and asked what he thinks might have happened to JonBenét. He acts out stabbing her and then says maybe she was hit with a hammer. He wasn’t particularly disturbed by her death and did not ask about her. He said he had forgotten about her. Until JonBenét was born, Burke got all of the attention from his parents. According to an ex family friend, Burke had a bad temper and had hit JonBenét with a golf club, leaving a scar under one eye.

Although the evidence points to Burke as the perpetrator of the crime and John and Patsy as accessories for covering it up; the investigators leave it to the audience to make up their own minds.

The Ramsey family never wanted the case to be solved because it would have revealed the “intruder” to be Burke.

27.  JonBenét Ramsey Docu-Series, Part I

Tonight was the first of two episodes of the docu-series that re-investigates the JonBenét Ramsey murder of December, 1996.

Retired FBI special agent/profiler Jim Clemente (credited with identifying the Unibomber, Ted Kaczynski), Laura Richards, a former New Scotland Yard criminal behavioral analyst and several heavy hitters—forensic pathologist Dr. Werner Spitz, forensic scientist, Dr. Henry Lee (the OJ Simpson blood spatter expert) and James Kolar, the former chief investigator for the District Attorney in Boulder looked at the evidence with fresh eyes.

First, the 911 call was analyzed. Patsy thought she had hung up the phone, but the dispatcher was still listening and the call was still being recorded. The linguist, Jim Clemente, recognized the voices in the room as John Ramsey, who said, “We’re not talking to you,” Patsy, who said, “What did you do?” “Help me, Jesus,” and Burke, who was supposedly “asleep” saying, “What did you find?” The dispatcher was never interviewed by anyone and has been waiting for 20 years to tell her side of the story!

Second, was the analysis of the rambling ransom note. It starts out with “listen carefully” when it should say something like “read” this carefully. 76% of the note is extraneous and could have been distilled down to five or six lines. It is portrayed as a “sales job.” The writer is really trying to “sell” a kidnapping, even though the 10:00am ransom demand phone call never came.

It was determined, the writer is educated, English is their first language, is aged at 30+ years old, and there are maternal references in the letter; so, it is most likely a female. There were two practice notes written, before one was finalized, on a pad of paper from the house, using a pen from the house and then returned to the exact places where they are usually kept. When the note was rewritten by detectives, it took over 21 minutes just to copy and write the note. That did not take into consideration the time it would have taken to compose the note. The bizarre part is that the note was written in the house instead of written before arriving to commit the crime. That doesn’t make any sense.

On the morning of the murder, and after the investigating detectives arrived, John was told the plan was to search the entire house “from top to bottom.” However, John takes one of his friends with him to the basement and almost immediately finds JonBenét’s body. He then carries her upstairs, ignoring the importance of preserving a crime scene, and lays her on the floor upstairs. She is again moved to the living room floor to get her out of a high-traffic area. Now the crime scene has been severely contaminated.

Very few people were ever interviewed after the murder, and in fact were told by the Ramsey’s attorney not to speak to the police. Jim Clemente requested an interview with the Ramsey’s best friends who had never been interviewed. They had been invited to the Ramsey house while they waited for the police to arrive, so were privy to everything that transpired in the house that morning. The friends agreed to talk “off” camera. An ex-gardener and former friend were both interviewed and gave interesting incites. Both said that Burke was quiet and stand-offish, even prior to the murder.

After examining the autopsy report and photographs, Dr. Werner Spitz said the death was caused by a blow to the head inflicted by the flashlight that was on the kitchen counter. The wound was a perfect match to the flashlight. Strangulation by garrote was not necessary because she was already brain dead due to concussion impact. It was just an attempted distraction. Since the flashlight was very heavy, the blow could easily have come from an adult or child.

Thirdly, it took 120 days before the Ramseys spoke publicly about their daughter. Their interview tape was analyzed. Both of them denied having killed her; and now, Patsy was indicating she was unsure whether there was actually an attempted kidnapping. She shakes her head back and forth while trying to figure out what to say. John interjects “yes” and then she began to nod her head up and down.

By the end of the second episode, the investigators are planning to name who they think wrote the ransom note and who was the murderer.

To be continued…
